Been A Long Time Lyrics

Earthbound wingless dream
Child born to necessity
Tied to crimson velvet wings
She flies
New moon midnight star
Medicine is in the jar
Head full of going far
She flies
Lost out on the dream road
Looking for a key hole
Never try to fight it
Feeling right inside it

Low country blushing bride
Blind to the ways of time
Clear crystal burning mind
She flies
Falling through liquid air
With music everywhere
Stone faces silent stare
She flies
The old guard on the hill
Can feel the chill
Deep into the freeze of
Those who don't believe

Chorus
Been a long time waiting on love
Been a long time waiting on love
Been a long time waiting on love
Been a long time waiting on love

Damp with this morning dew
The world is bright and new
Her word is always true
She flies
Step into the new day
Right over the old way
We are the horizon
See our future smiling

Halfway To Everywhere Lyrics

You could be so energy
Electricity
You could be lightening
You could be anything
A masterpiece
A revolutionary
You can see what you want to see
Can you let it be?
Learn or teach

I'm only halfway to everywhere

I'm thinking positivety
Positively
This is possible
They can say right or wrong
Never hear this song
Or look you in the eye
I'm getting rid of negativity
Lose the loss in me
Call it equality
Good luck is a frame of mind
Call it humankind
And say it's destiny

Nebakanezer Lyrics

Nebakanezer never knew
He left his needle outside in the rain
And it rusted through
He kept twenty-nine blackbirds
but only one flew
Spent most of his time making holes
And licking his wounds
Nebakanezer lost his wife
She took her diamond rings and was
gone before the light
She left one satin shoe and a
very dull knife
She left one satin shoe and a very dull knife

So tell us what the sorry singer might do
All of his friends complain
That they got the flu
They ain't sick in the head
They look like the living dead
And that's not cool

Cypress Tree Lyrics

So you found yourself a killer
The one with blue eyes
I guess the blood stain on the blanket don't lie
I guess I saw it coming
Like a boy I just kept running
But through this crime I have survived

Chorus:
They're gonna hang you from the cypress tree
The crowd gonna cheer when the see you swing
Yeah, they're gonna hang you from the cypress tree
Tell me now do you believe?

Glory Halleluia,
I raise my glass up to you
And I bow my head with utmost respect
And I think its only fair to warn you
That there's a storm that's coming up on you
And like a wind and the rain
My words are direct

Chorus

It's a funny word "friends"
You get beginnings and you got ends
I guess I see you when we're ashes again

Chorus

Virtue And Vice Lyrics

Think of me
I'll think of you
We better think
This whole thing through
Sometimes I'm so clumsy

You talk to me
I'll talk to you
You cut the fat
And we'll both chew
You know we're both hungry

I feel so alive today
That's all that I wanted to say
I hope that it stays this way
If not I will be okay

Say another prayer
Save another life
Kiss me on my head
And tell me
Everything's alright
'Cause I can say it one
Or I can shout it twice
All there really is
Is virtue and vice
Virtue and vice

Cry to me
I'll cry to you
Sometimes the pain will only do
You know I'm not kidding

You laugh with me
I'll laugh with you
At all the stupid things we do
Tomorrow we'll be happy

She Gave Good Sunflower Lyrics

I've been lost in the headlights
All night long
Said i've felt taller, yes I heard
the dealer's song

Say babe don't mark me absent
I only missed out by a fraction
Be the sun that bursts through my clouds
It's hard enough just living on this ground

chorus:
Say don't pretend to me
I beg and i plead, your sunflower I need
Thought nothing would surprise me
I was wrong now i see
Come on baby and just do me
if you please

This made me reminiscing
About the honey we made
I feel warm in your blizzard
And your flood I crave
I won't abuse my anger
I promise you no lecture

Come be the sun bursting through my clouds
It's hard enough just living on the ground
chorus

Houston Don't Dream About Me Lyrics

Another week in the driver's seat
With your feet up on the dashboard
The rain kept a steady beat
As i watched you dream of houston
I ain't ever going back,
Yes sir that's a fact
As you waved your cowboy hat
And sang “the yellow rose of texas”

Just trying to make high ground
Has kept us on the run
There's no crime in towing the line
Because fortune is smiling on us baby
And we're going to walk in the sun

Chorus:
I might dream about houston
But houston don't dream about me
And if i can keep it between the lines
Who knows what will be

Loose change days and motel nights
Day old coffee dollar postcards
State troopers flashing lights
As we listen to the thunder
As we talked about our past
So we see our coming future
You tell me you know love can last

While staring out the window
Just looking for a place to hide
A place to ease our minds
A place away from yesterday
Close to tomorrow away from the sorrows
Of living other people's time

How long how long
Til we feel the change
How long how long
Will the skies be grey
How long how long

Soul Singing Lyrics

I've been down
Cascading and blue without a sound
Now I've traded my black feathers for a crown
So feed me milk and honey lay me down
Lay me down
Look around
Show me holy places not yet found
Lets disappear and we'll hide underground
And we'll get high and we'll feel safe and sound
It comes around
Around

Chorus:
Got my soul singing my soul singing
Soul singing got my soul singing
Got my soul singing my soul singing
Soul singing got my soul singing
Got my soul singing my soul singing
Soul singing got my soul singing
Got my soul singing my soul singing
Soul singing got my soul singing
Come on now come on now

Home bound
Tired of tired of running town to town
Tired of my heart turned upside down
Now my life a smile and not a frown
The sound
The sound

Chorus

Girl From A Pawnshop Lyrics

With pawnshop eyes and a second hand frown
She sat silent at the table
Her boots were brown, well should she leave town
To play the role of lover expatriate
A nod to the waiter, always her flirty behavior
You know she always gets one on the house
She pulls out a letter
From a bag under her sweater
And before she reads she straightens her blouse

There's a passion in being alone
A grace in a loveless time
There's no new cross, there's no new sign
Only the sun and the changing tide

And out of respect, well really must confess
I never lost your number
I never lost your address
And if we remain friends at best
Sometime later no, no not yet
We'll smile and remember it like this

She put back the letter
One tear falls like a feather
And disappears on the bar room floor
The gratuity included
You know the letter concluded
P.S. with all my love

There's a passion in being alone
A grace in a loveless time
There's no new cross, there's no new sign
Only the sun and the changing tide

I said P.S. all my love
P.S. all my love
P.S. all my love

Wiser Time Lyrics

No time left now for shame
Horizon behind me, no more pain
Windswept stars blink and smile
Another song, another mile

You read the line every time
Ask me about crime in my mind
Ask me why another road song
Funny but I bet you never left home

On a good day, it's not every day
We can part the sea
And on a bad day, it's not every day
Glory beyond our reach

Fourteen seconds till' sunrise
Tired but wiser for the time
Lightning 30 miles away
Three thousand more in two days

On a good day, it's not every day
We can part the sea
And on a bad day, it's not every day
Glory beyond our reach

Garden Gate Lyrics

Brown eyed girl
Precious flower
From your slumber awake
We have come to the fateful hour
And our love cannot wait

Chorus
Meet me at the gate
At the garden gate
Meet me at the garden gate
You made a promise now don’t be late
Meet me at the garden gate

Don’t tell your mother
Don’t tell your father
We both know it’s far too late
When we fly they won’t come after
And they will know our love is great

Chorus

You are sweet as you are tender
You are wise beyond your years
You are a jewel amongst the cinders
So don’t shed a sorry tear

She Talks To Angels Lyrics

She never mentions the word addiction
In certain company
Yes, she'll tell you she's an orphan
After you meet her family

She paints her eyes as black as night now
She pulls those shades down tight
She gives a smile when the pain comes
The pain gonna' make everything alright

Says she talks to angels
They call her out by her name
Oh yeah, she talks to angels
Says they call her out by her name

She keeps a lock of hair in her pocket
She wears a cross around her neck
Yes the hair is from a little boy
And the cross from someone she has not met
Not yet

(Repeat Chorus)

She don't know no lovers
None that I've ever seen
And to her that means nothing
But to me it means, means everything

(Repeat second verse)
(Repeat Chorus)

Thorn In My Pride Lyrics

Wake me when the day breaks
Show me how the sun shines
Tell me about your heartaches
Who could be so unkind?
Do you dream to touch me?
And smile down deep inside
Or could you just kill me?
It's hard to make up your mind, sometimes.

My angels, my devils, my thorn in my pride.
Are you wanting inspiration
You spill your secrets on me
Then you tell me with a whisper
Of things that will never be.
Do you hear me breating?
Does it make you want to scream?
Did you ever like a bad dream?
Sometimes life is obscene.

My angels, my devils, my thorn in my pride.
Lover cover me with your sleep
Let your love light shine
Lover cover me with a good dream
Let your love light shine

Oh Sweet Nuthin' Lyrics

Say a word for Jimmy Brown
He ain't got nothing at all
He knocked the shirt right of his back
He ain't got nothing at all

And say a word for Ginger Brown
He walks with his head down to the ground
Took the shoes right off his feet
And threw the poor boy right out in the street
And this is what he said:

Oh, sweet nuthin'
She ain't got nothing at all
Oh, sweet nuthin'
She ain't got nothing at all

Say a word for Polly May
She can't tell the night from the day
They threw her out in the street
Just like a cat she landed on her feet

And say a word for Joana Love
She ain't got nothing at all
With every day she falls in love
And every night she falls
And when she does she says:

Oh, sweet nuthin'
You know She ain't got nothing at all
[Woe, oh] sweet nuthin'
She ain't got nothing at all
Oh, let me hear you

Oh, say a word, say a word for Jimmy Brown
He ain't got nothing at all, not a thing
And not a shirt, shirt on his back
No, he ain't got nothing at all

And say a word for Ginger
He walks with his head to the ground
He took the shoes, took the shoes from his feet, from his feet
And threw the poor boy out into the street
And then he said:

Oh, sweet sweet nuthin'
She ain't got, she ain't got, she ain't got nothing at all
Sweet sweet sweet sweet nuthin'
She ain't got
Sweet Sweet nothing ...
Oh, let me hear you

She ain't got nothing at all ...

Jealous Again Lyrics

Cheat the odds that made you
Brave to try to gamble at times
Well I feel like dirty laundry
Sending sickness on down the line
Tell you why

'Cause I'm jealous, jealous again
Thought it time I let you in
Yeah, I'm jealous, jealous again
Got no time, baby

Always drunk on Sunday
Try'n to feel like I'm at home
Smell the gasoline burning
Boys out feeling nervous and cold

(Repeat 1st Chorus)

Stop, understand me
I ain't afraid of losing face
Stop, understand me
I ain't afraid of ever losing faith in you
Never felt like smiling
Sugar wanna' kill me yet
Find me loose lipped and laughing
Singing songs ain't got no regrets
(Repeat 1st and 2nd Chrous)

Don't you think I want to
Don't you think I would
Don't you think I'd tell you baby
If I only could
Am I acting crazy
Am I just too proud
Am I just plain lazy
Am I, Am I, Am I, ever

Title Song Lyrics

You know I never wanted it to be like this
I've been lost in sandstorms
Left naked by your kiss
In the face of God
Of God and his poison leaves
The way it feels right now oh yeah
I really want to believe

So then you look on me with sad black eyes
Well I heard it coming yeah
And you know I lost my smile
In a January that never ends
The gold affections of my past
Are now just rusted tin, yeah

Well I really want to see you again
I miss my lover, as my best friend
Yeah baby I , I want you right by my side
With you baby, I'd spend all my time

They said they'd write a book someday
About a boy who'd always strayed
And a girl who took the fog away
Man, if it could be that way
Then I would come without delay
Yes, with a smile on my face
And I would not be lost for long
If I could be your title song

So every now and then I get sad, yes it's true
Well you've known me long enough now baby yeah, it's nothing new
Like, like, when I'm feeling bad
I feel underwater I feel blue
And you know the only thing I ask from you baby
Well, is can I swim to you, yeah

Well I really want to begin this again
Cause I miss you as my lover, I miss my best friend
Oh baby I, I just want you right by my side
Yeah cause with you girl I would spend all my time

Said we'd write a book someday
About a boy who'd always strayed
And a girl who took the fog away
Man, if it could be that way
Then I would come without delay
With a smile on my face
And I would not be lost for long
And you could be my title song
Yeah

Well baby, I, yes I want to begin this again
Well cause I miss my lover, and yes I miss my best friend
Oh baby you know I want you right by my side
Down with you baby, I'll spend all my time

We said we'd write a book someday
About a boy who'd always strayed
A girl who took the fog away
Man, if it could only be that way
I would come without delay
With a smile on my face
And I would not be lost for long
And you could be my title song
Well I won't be lost for long
If you could be my title song
My title song

Happy Lyrics

Well I never kept a dollar past sunset,
It always burned a hole in my pants.
Never made a school mama happy,
Never blew a second chance, oh no

I need a love to keep me happy,
I need a love to keep me happy.
Baby, baby keep me happy.
Baby, baby keep me happy.

Always took candy from strangers,
Didn't wanna get me no trade.
Never want to be like papa,
Working for the boss ev'ry night and day.

I need a love to keep me happy,
I need a love, baby won't ya keep me happy.
Baby, won't ya keep me happy.
Baby, please keep me

I need a love to keep me happy,
I need a love to keep me happy.
Baby, baby keep me happy.
Baby, baby keep me happy.

Never got a flash out of cocktails,
When I got some flesh off the bone.
Never got a lift out of Lear jets,
When I can fly way back home.

I need a love to keep me happy,
I need a love to keep me happy.
Baby, baby keep me happy.
Baby, baby keep me happy.

Remedy Lyrics

Baby, baby why can't you sit still?
Who killed that bird out on you window sill?
Are you the reason that he broke his back?
Did I see you laugh about that?
If I come on like a dream?
Would you let me show you what I mean?
If you let me come on inside?
Will you let it glide?

Can I have some remedy?

Remedy for me please.
Cause if I had some remedy
I'd take enough to please me.

Baby, baby why did you dye your hair?
Why you always keeping with your mother's dare?
Baby why's who's who, who know you too?
Did the other children scold on you?
If I come on like a dream?
Would you let me show you what I mean?
If you let me come on inside?
Will you let it slide
