Someday I'm Gonna Find That World Oh rather than running away I'm gonna hide here where I'm gonna stay See if anything come of dreaming Fantasies of a fantasy world I can't get much going here Life is aging me in the mirror But my dreams are still pretty clear Someday I'm gonna find that world (Chorus) Here it's just fires or floods If I choose to stay Same old routine everyday oh and fame would help to pay the bills but then I'd have more bills to pay Hits us hard in different ways some love boredom and playing it safe I hit the road in my dreams every day Someday I'm gonna find that world What you fade away you can't get back Aging eyes are under attack I'll keep looking I'm on track While I'm listening to Ronnie Earl Rhythm means more than lead Giving means more than greed Freedom means more when freed Someday I'm gonna find that world. (Chorus)

Your Smile Is Your Wealth In the morning sun is on your face in the evening gone is your embrace. (chorus) Hey, wear the rain on your brow Be beautiful, take life sweetly Don't be like them, express yourself Your smile is your wealth. I have followed me and found me under your feet. I will lift you until the stars retreat. (chorus) I have met you when my life has been unfair. I will let you think of me and I'll be there. (chorus x2)
3.
Lost The Fiddle But We Got The Bow Everybody wants to fall in love Everybody wants a love that flies When it’s new how’s it going to go? I lost the fiddle but I’ve got the bow (Chorus) We just want to rock n’ roll dance until we lose control we can go where the good times go I lost the fiddle but I’ve got the bow. Make no mistake being free easy to teach stupidity If you don’t cast much a shadow and you lost the fiddle but you’ve got the bow (Chorus) Leave your history behind Trust your luck don’t be defined Don’t let life put a tag on your toe If you lost the fiddle you got the bow (Chorus)

The Dark Highway How many times before I crash must I ride this dark highway? darkness everywhere I see and how many eyes must I meet in the open prairie skyway with not a care about me? It's true that I've been hiding from where I've been and where I'm going and I don't ask anybody how they're doing - There's been no drinks bought for me because I steer near the walls and behind my eyes are lies and disillusions It's true that I'm immune to the carnival and the social hurricane that blows and burns all around me I'm here in this skin looking in thinking of neitzsche saying "my friends, but what are friends?" nobody's found me Watching people I've known for years leave me alone while I stay home or on the road while they become such great companions It breaks my heart because I'm here leaning on this bitter tear and I'm but a raincloud to the great depths of their canyons.

What Good Is A Heart Without Love? I can't get a lift I guess I better run What good is a heart without love? Those who ignore us never seem to go away What good is a heart without love? Well I must be in love with the pain baby, I'm lost without a train broken heart running wherever these dreams are bound But it's time to pick up the pace because these are the good old days the sunshine around your brain as you dance around I tried the churches tried the bars but true life is on the road What good is a heart without love? but we've come a long long way why must we have such a long way to go What good is a heart without love? I can make things happen but I'm stranded on this ice singing in my memory laughing at the wildness of dice my memories can't be trusted unless they're made in central time wash my spirit clean beneath the western sun What good is a heart without love? I tried the churches tried the bars but true life is on the road What good is a heart without love? but we've come a long long way and now we've got a long way to go What good is a heart without love? What good is a heart without love? What good is a heart without love?

Nothing Else To Find But God I’ve picked up all of my possessions Searched hard and long in times forgot Now there’s a tool for my intentions And I’ve nothing else to find but God What else can we do to kill time? Time keeps you alive, I’ve been taught. Grief and love they know no time and I’ve nothing else to find but God I’ve nothing else to find but God God help me on my way to freedom I’ve been cursing your aim since I was born In a shallow world too deep to dream in Boomers left us this world so worn Where do I go to have my prime? Nightmares have turned these dreams to fraud But count your blessings You’re born for these times and you’ve nothing else to find but God You’ve nothing else to find but God. Left for dead but I won’t die Beauty is a moment that’s been caught Look on the bright side We will all survive with nothing else to find but God.

Deal With The Devil I made a deal with the devil wish I could take it back I was going too far in that direction seemed the going was getting black and the saddest thing of all is I lost you along the way and lost the things that I care about and these days I forget to pray these days I forget to pray. I can't find my way home when I'm out taking care of feelings and they leave me on uncertain roads everywhere's been sketchy dealings and the saddest thing of all is I lost you along the way I was the first to go because I was the last to stay Suddenly I can't turn back - and I'm running fast into a wall We hit a snag that day when I moved down the line it gets harder to be a dreamer with the bells ringing all the time good luck in your search for perfection and I will do the same there's a road stretched out there waiting and to leave it there's a crying shame

Before Our Long Goodbyes Won't matter to thrill me now when someone comes my way I lost a lot of friends some are gone and some are here to stay (Chorus) When memories chase you don't let time erase you you'll only have more to show and you can't deny it once you've learned to ride it your road's the only way to go. I was lost in her eyes summer days were long and flying by she helped me find some long lost songs before our long goodbyes (Chorus) And I can't deny it it's all how you survive it we'll always have a long way to go and I can't deny it now that I've learned to ride it this road's the only road to know (Bridge) I'm a man without a soul count me in on this war surviving all these days obscurely yours When the masters are gone it's up to us to carry on the oldest memories feel like yesterday and the future feels so long (Chorus) My heaven ain't burning it's somewhere I'm returning and I'll still see the sunshine on you so pass up your shotgun don't lose sleep over someone who isn't losing sleep over you. I was lost in her eyes summer days were long and flying by She helped me find some long lost songs before our long goodbyes.

Tell Me Now 03:51
Tell Me Now Searching for someone I know searching where the ragged people go A never-ending song had sung inside my mind but it kept me moving on (Chorus) Have you seen the man who dreamed he had seen my long lost friend? If you know what I don't know - tell me now. After finding shelter from a storm that blew so hard and left me starved and cold I went out searching high and low and all I found was my shadow on this road. (Chorus) Stolen truth has led my mind back to the times I loved her when we met Fear has come and fear has gone and has led me to hate my deep will to forget. (Chorus).

She Just Won’t Let Me Through Nothing is out of my league now to admire Keeps my soul going Set my soul on fire These times I’m wondering what I’m gonna do I’m seeing her and she just won’t let me through. I’m dreaming now with these tears in my eyes Grief and true love seem to know no time I’ve got nothing else to find but you and I’m seeing her but she just won’t let me through Time runs away sunny love goes astray life’s too short to waste if you don’t ever play someday they will see I was deep in misery living here and she just won’t let me through. So if you have a love who shares their soul hang on so hard because life can get so cold What looks good on paper they just don’t have a clue I’m seeing her and she just won’t let me through I’m seeing her and she just won’t let me through.
