Coffee And Wine I love the morning sun when I can see it in your eyes and your curly hair and sweet embrace can hold me for all time I wish life wouldn't get in the way and we could stay here for all time My dreams have all come true we just need Coffee and Wine (Chorus) Wine to take the edge away coffee for the break of day sunshine for the waking eyes starlight for the dreamy nights I love our life on the run we never rest we say goodbye Through all the worlds we drift together until we die There's no one else I'd rather know than you - bad or good combined I believe this is what we're here to do - let there be coffee and wine. (Chorus)

Far From Here You shine me a light dazzle me with your dreams show me what's right what the messages mean where the dollars roll where the wildflowers lean you show me the soul in your sunset stream you kiss and you dance make love in between easy to romance a blessing you've been a shower of praise gives me hope I ain't seen for so many days I was the broken machine You give me the gears I give you these years you turn towards tears I turn towards fears you hold up a mirror to the pain I see clear it's sad how we steer ourselves far from here you kiss and you dance make love in between easy to romance a blessing you've been a shower of praise gives me hope I ain't seen for so many days I was the broken machine You give me the gears I give you these years you turn towards tears I turn towards fears you hold up a mirror to the pain I see clear it's sad how we steer ourselves far from here

Lucky Fool 02:58
Lucky Fool I got my sweetheart with me and she ain't no mule. She's the unlucky prize and I'm the lucky fool. Well she makes my money and she sews my clothes and she serves me honey with a home-made jelly roll. Talking 90 miles an hour with a storyline. She keeps my head thinking and staying in line. And the boys are hanging waiting their turn but baby ain't easy they got a lot to learn. I'm working these days to keep her satisfied and I sure don't cheat, and I hate that I lied. And I'm paying and praying she believes me soon 'cause I ain't got money and I'm starving too. If she ever leaves me I'll beg her to stay 'cause without her love I can't find my way. I know better than to mess around this big time woman will put me in the ground.

I Have Loved Just One Fine Maiden I have loved just one fine maiden her heart was true and fair and in my days of swagger I hadn’t the heart to care no aches of the aging had any hold on me and I loved each and every maiden with the abandon of a spree Many fine young maidens came from far and near only one would truly love me and have no heart of fear she played the piano pretty in the parlours round the square and every man would stutter when her beauty took their air I have loved just one fine maiden her heart was true and fair and in my days of swagger I had not the heart to care And she fell so deep in love with me and deep inside I cried I knew that I was troubled lost but she didn’t realize She’d be given to temptations and scorned around the town by the ones who heard her breaking heart the day our life was down She trusted me so blindly my maiden true and fair and all the other maidens never raised a care and it seemed that youth had left me when one day I was untrue and suddenly the dreams of her and I could not come through I held her in abandon this new maiden pretty and fair then a loud cry went in the room when I saw the gentry there they climbed up to the rooftops and in anguish they declared I was untrue and a misfit scorned by those true and fair Soon my maiden was escaping to the mountainside so high I chased her to the edges when she fell through a mile of sky I helped my only maiden who was true and so fair and I cursed my life of decadence and left behind my lair Since those days now have left me I seldom go to town the parlours are all empty the gentry just stand their ground no thief of hearts may wander near this prison cell and I I rest my case each day and sing this lonesome lullaby I have loved just one fine maiden her heart was true and fair and in my days of swagger I hadn’t the heart to care no aches of the aging had any hold on me and I loved each and every maiden with the abandon of a spree

Long Coming Light Of The Morning She's softly wakes to Lucky John singing in her ear She sees the young sweet lady fading in the mirror If I'm the chance she's missing on I will stay right here and wait for my long coming light of the morning This night hasn't been easy there's years I'd gladly trade lesson after lesson mistakes being made dreams I wasn't chasing making lemonade and now I wait for my long coming light in the morning (Chorus) She's my long coming light of the morning there's a brand new dream been forming Time to wake for dawn to fly colors never shown and then I'd know that I could go on My dawn shines on someone's else's time who won't see her colors shine? You won't bask in her riches or turn away and smile my long coming light of the morning (Chorus)
6.
Nobody To Ruin My Fun Ain’t making no mistake here Nobody to ruin my fun I’m cooking and you’re eating Nobody to ruin my fun I’m playing at this picnic Nobody to ruin my fun Check out this guitar lick Nobody to ruin my fun (Chorus) hey Nobody to ruin my fun hey Nobody to ruin my fun If you’re shy and in the corner Nobody to ruin my fun join the singing playing Nobody to ruin my fun I got a brand new silver dollar Nobody to ruin my fun says you can’t even foller Nobody to ruin my fun (Chorus) Everybody’s moving Nobody to ruin my fun To the beat there’s always grooving Nobody to ruin my fun just because I played it Nobody to ruin my fun doesn’t mean I’ve made it Nobody to ruin my fun (Chorus)
7.
Do You Wanna Get Down? Do you wanna get down? let me get a good look at you there ain't no one else around let me get a good look at you Do you want what I got for you? Do you want what I got for you? (Chorus)) Baby, you're my kind I love it when you move it you're my peace of mind Do you wanna get down? Do you wanna get down? I want someone to follow I want someone to lean behind I want someone hollow so I can use my mind (Chorus)
8.
Please Don't Leave For Me A Broken Heart I hope someday there ain't a wall where ever these hard feeling fall there ain't no use in running away you're helpless, so you say time will tell if there's a way my imaginations much too tall (chorus) I wish the best for you and me not the places we ought to be not the lives we have apart please don't leave for me a broken heart. I got sickness whipped and I toed the line made mistakes a million times you still see me and need me there and I don't doubt the fact you care I just want to give you air without losing you to what you'd find. (chorus) I can't believe the things I say I just wish I had some faith if everything be what it may so what then will everything be tomorrow?
9.
Where I Belong Today I don't know you but I love you and I wish you would pull me on through my world was dying and I'm not hiding sticking this neck out and trying to get to you (Chorus) Trying to find the perfect words to write and say Trying to make sense of games that people play Trying to wait until things turn my way Trying to get to where I belong today Your arms are warm and your smile is strong I just try to get along I'm just there with a big old heart I don't like it when it gets torn apart (Chorus) I don't know you but I love you and I wish you would pull me on through
10.
I Ache For You I ache for you don't know what my world is coming to when I play a trick on you you laugh and you pull me through your eyes have said goodbyes your heart has said hellos your dreams they look like mine where you go I'd like to go You swim in my mind I can't pass the no trespassing sign so I leave fate up to you you laugh and that pulls me through Your eyes are dancing green most beautiful human I have seen don't know what my world coming to I ache for you I talk in circles sometimes while I leave the crying behind every day I dream some more don't know why I never stayed with you before I ache for you don't know what my world is coming to when I play a joke on you you laugh and you pull me through
11.
It's OK To Cry It's OK to cry when she's dancing and laughing trying to talk her cares all away trying to be a mystery for somebody new and to live with the dawning of this new day (Chorus) She leaves me in a sad empty way and there's no day going by without some kind of pain I see the happy one with a mansion full of fun while I'm picking up the pieces I can claim There's no loyalties but the ones I am presented there's freedom from resistance I resented and I would run again if I tried to make amends there's no hope in forevers I've relented (Chorus) She used to dance and play to my song until she said the music was all wrong but I never was untrue she didn't have a clue of all the crimes I was falsely accused (Chorus)
12.
A Song Is Gonna Stand To Drift Me By This day has been so sad and confused I'm second guessing everything I do the things I've done and how they've got to you and how beauty's here but it doesn't see me through and the world I'm catching up on so long gone can't recall the way I used to get along and even if I could I feel it's wrong to be moving on from heartache with a song (Chorus) A song ain't gonna break the silent sky A song ain't gonna heal a hard goodbye A song ain't gonna teach two wings to fly A song is gonna stand to get/drift me by You see me drifting in and out of pain I've left behind a lot of tears and rain I'm trying to live my lessons ain't it plain Built up years and of tears to steer my brain Can't seem to shake away this frozen air maybe it's sign I still do care we'll disagree on what is truly fair as long as I am here and you are there (chorus)
13.
Nobody Needs To Know I broke your trust you broke mine you were afraid a flaw in design (Chorus) Nobody needs to know what happened to the trails we made Nobody needs to know what words go in the songs we played You kept doubting living in fear crying and shouting and we were two mirrors (Chorus) We had our good times We stuck around Until all the bad times drove me from town I miss your warm bed I miss your kid I miss my heart fed by things that we did (Chorus) I broke your trust You broke mine You were afraid a flaw in design.
14.
Heartache Serenade I'm walking on not looking back because the past is not the only place to go Where were you when I needed you? I let you be the only world I've known (Chorus) I get visions of your laughter It haunts my sorrows everyday If this were happy ever after Forever would seem so very far away and forever would sing a heartache serenade I've left you on a trail of sorrow Goodbye dreams and hello rain and snow and as I kiss my new lover by the grotto my heart's a rocky trail that she don't know (Chorus) Our sunsets haunt my memory the birds that sang for us have flown away and friendships have grown colder goodbyes are all that they have left to say (Chorus)
