Track Name: As Long As You're There
As Long As You're There

Hit the hard road low
and up and higher we'll grow
I don't care where I'm going just as long as you're there.
With the winds at our backs
we can glide over these cracks.
I don't care where I'm going just as long as you're there.

(chorus)
I don't care where I'm going just as long as I see you're there.
Sometimes we go through hell and back
and I know I don't treat you fair.
When all is said and done, my dear
and we're going up to heaven again
I hope my love shines crystal clear
because I know I'll never love again.

When we sing I feel alive
and there's no more need to hide
I don't care where I'm going just as long as you're there.
It don't matter what's been done
when we're walking in the sun.
I don't care where I'm going just as long as you're there.

(chorus)

Hit the hard road low
and up and higher we'll grow
I don't care where I'm going just as long as you're there.
Track Name: The Valley Unnamed
The Valley Unnamed.

I love the soul you bared on this treasure of a song
and you sang of a dream where the roads went wrong
miles of roads and memory
and you cried for the wounds of January.

(chorus)
Change is the promise
the future's unchained
we all hope for joy
and settle for pain
the vivid get dulled
and the wild become tamed
while we all search for meaning
in this valley unnamed.

There's beauty in silver that shines in the clouds
there's pastures of plenty in these faceless crowds
with their stories to learn and their lessons in mind
the past can become can become a friend of mine.

(chorus)

Devils get wasted
the poor earn sad dreams
and the bitterness of age crawls through their bloodstreams
and they stand in the gutters and pray to the Gods
while the edges of crime keep burning their thoughts.

(chorus)

I love the soul you bared in this treasure of a song.
Track Name: What I Made
What I Made

Where future lies - I wonder where all the lovers are going?
Where my heart dies and thunder shots without warning
And what to do? When there's no proof of truth shining through
Am I just drifting because no light shines upon the dreams I choose?

See the world - how things go well for every boy and girl.
They have it made - and there ain't no debts they have not paid
And I wander on to the wander further to the dead and gone
I wonder why I'm alive when I live just beyond those who've died

(Chorus)
Waste away - no more I'll waste away the days of rain
I can't complain - even though my world is just what I made

Phone don't ring - carpets don't roll and no one says hello
And it's a shame - because they'll never know the things I know
Where future lies? I wonder where all the lovers are going?
Where my heart dies and the thunder shots without warnings.
Track Name: So Beautiful To Me
So Beautiful To Me

I can dance around the truth
and cover your heart with goodbyes
but I see how you are so beautiful to me.
This life is full of changes
and casual goodbyes
I see how you're so beautiful to me.
Doesn't ever hurt me
to feel the changes in the air
to follow where I'm going
and you will find me there
I know it's where I belong
and with your hope to share
I see how you're so beautiful to me.
I see how you're so beautiful to me.

Dance me to the corners where the sweetest echoes fall
I see how you're so beautiful to me.
I know there is no reason
we shouldn't hit those walls
I see how you're so beautiful to me.
People are not easy to teach how to be free
the intellectualize love
I say just let it be
and I wish the world would drop that game
and someday they will see
I know how you're so beautiful to me.
I know how you're so beautiful to me.

And it's not just beauty's outside
but the beauty that you hold deep
I see how you're so beautiful to me.
I could see your pain and it somehow
calms my flame
I see how you're so beautiful to me.
There ain't nobody slowing down
on the road to life
they find there's more problems
and they live in seas of strife
but really they should stop and think
beyond their foolish pride
I see how you're so beautiful to me.
I see how you're so beautiful to me.
Track Name: Her Dreams Have Kissed Me
Her Dreams Have Kissed Me

It's too late to stop the fears
and too early to stop the years
we sit and wait for a calling
and we forget the chains we're hauling
every day there lies the answer
we miss because she's quite a dancer
somewhere beyond us lies the danger
of finding solace in a stranger

(Chorus)
If she walks away
she will be making a desert misty
if she walks away
I will remember her dreams have kissed me

She fell so sweet and calm
there was some dry dirt on her palm
his eyes were lost and strange
broken hearts are slow to change
she wished to see him through his nights
to be certain wrong was right
there could be heart in breaking
as much as there is pains in taking

(Chorus)
Track Name: You Are The Heart In My Soul
You Are The Heart In My Soul

Eternity robbed my dreams
took her sweet romance true
and gave me the gift of the life
I find I'm now living with you
Old days have turned to sadness
now the new days have turned to gladness
because you are the heart in my soul
you're in my desires.

And I used to wander alone
to the docks I'd throw my eyes
staring into the distance
and wishing for no more goodbyes
but now I'll hang onto love
because it seems to work better that way
because you are the heart in my soul
you're in my desires.

Maybe I dream of you more
than you have ever dreamed
there's nowhere you can't go
and everywhere you can be
I've had you on my mind
all day and all alone
at night I lie asleep
and wish that I could be home.

The times may turn cold and hard
you may yearn for another to love
seems the fire is coals
and the heat won't warm you enough
but I won't be out of control
when you wander away from my fire
you are the heart in my soul
you're in my desires
you are the heart in my soul
you're in my desires.
Track Name: I Can't Stop Thinking About You
I Can't Stop Thinking About You

Don't really know why I want you
I don't even know why I care
I've barely gotten to know you
you came along
out of thin air

(chorus)
I can't stop thinking about you
I can't stop thinking about you
I know other things are important too but
I can't stop thinking about you.

I know you're missing somebody
who's lucky to be in your scene
all I know is what I'm feeling
and your picture is burning in my dreams.

(chorus)

Someday we'll know each other
and I promise I'm gonna treat you right
there won't be anymore need to suffer
because love is going to keep us tight.

(chorus)

I don't care if you're smoking or drinking
your eyes are like jewels in the sky
you seem to do a lot of thinking
and I'm such a positive guy.

(chorus x2)
Track Name: Farewell Sweet Gypsy Love
Farewell Sweet Gypsy Love

She's sweet as the breeze
wise without strife
She's told me she's waited for me all her life
I feel the same yet there's a flame
she wants to feel before her calling is real

(Chorus)
Hold me again I say
loosen the chain
she'll want me again someday should I go
Farewell Sweet Gypsy Love
Stars shine bright enough
to reach us
but we're too cold to stray a path alone

She's barefoot as the hills
Sweet mountain chill
she has dreams in her eyes
to hold me when I'm alone
there's times we feel divine
times we feel inside
mystified by waves
she rides her sorrow alone

(Chorus)
Track Name: I Can't Leave And I Can't Let You Go
I Can't Leave And I Can't Let You Go

If I let you down
don't walk a mile.
Don't give me much a chance
to change my style.
Just tell me I am wrong
and hurt me so
and I can't leave and I can't let you go.

There's no use turning on this light of mine.
I can't win and I can't hit rewind.
Blues keep piling up outside my door
and I can't leave and I can't let you go.

(chorus)
Tell me everything I need to do
to hold love in my heart with baby blues
but these baby blues don't want to see no more
what it looks like when love's walking out the door.

You beat me down 'cause I ain't good enough.
When I get sad you want me to get tough.
The simple life ain't fit for you no more.
I can't leave and I can't let you go.

Please show me that there isn't much to do
for my little heart to shine on through to you
because comfort helps the sweetest things to flow.
I can't leave and I can't let you go.

(chorus)

If I let you down
don't walk a mile.
Don't give me much a chance
to change my style.
Just tell me I am wrong
and hurt me so
and I can't leave and I can't let you go.
I can't leave and I can't let you go.
Track Name: Giving Gifts Away
Giving Gifts Away

We're smiling with a new day
and i'm awoken by the cold
the forces that outweigh us
and the sound of spirits sold
we try to find community
we imagine ourselves free
there's better days behind us
if we let tomorrow be
the giving gifts away

there's always the illusion
it's getting better than before
until mother earth rejects us
we can't find her at the store
and if you imagine all the millions
with greed in every step
walking on a short cliff
falling to their death

c don't mean to be so blunt
am don't mean to be so real
G I just tell you what I Dm see
Am you tell me how you F feel - - C G

We're smiling with a new day
and then awoken by the fire
if we're to outlast injustice
we must outlast desire
you can take without the giving
treat the earth as a friend
your friend will not return
if you use your friend again
Track Name: The Jack Of Hearts
The Jack Of Hearts/The Party Doll

He ain't the jack of any trade he's just the Jack Of Hearts
he used to dance the two step but he's dancing the twelve step now
God wrote the songs he's singing even though his voice has hit the wall
and he's pining for some action like the party doll

His coat is ripped and faded like the voice that never lies
he wears that voice up on his sleeve like the watch that drowns
and never dies
some people get tired of trying they lose all force of will
but the jack of hearts still lingers like the leaving of the chill

As seasons bring us flowers and we sit and we watch them wilt
as soon as they get blooming just like everything we've built
the Jack of Hearts the winners the losers and the free
might as well all be fleeing like the fleeting scenery

He ain't the jack of any trade he's just the Jack Of Hearts
he used to dance the two step but he's dancing the twelve step now
God wrote the songs he's singing even though his voice has hit the wall
and he's pining for some action like the party doll
Track Name: Two Hearts On The Loose
Two Hearts On The Loose

I felt your eyes when I said goodbye
It doesn't mean I'll never see your eyes again
and I gave you pain when I called out your name
it don't mean I won't ever call out your name again

(Chorus)
and we're lost and confused
lonely when unused
safe when abused
two hearts on the loose

You've seen me cry and shown me why I hide
and I will die trying
There will never be a way
I'm sorry to say but I love you
It's just the pathways are fleeting

(Chorus)

(Bridge)
This doesn't mean goodbye
I'm not too old to try
and the fire still burns inside me

Your son is beautiful
your timeless moon it still flows
and your sisters still call you out for the good times
heartbreak can't take away
all the love you made
it only helps to keep safe
memories you hold inside

(Chorus x2)

I felt your eyes when I said goodbye
It doesn't mean I'll never see your eyes again
