Tucson Lullaby Under a field of moonlight the creatures hide in the cold The predators are out tonight the suspense of silence takes hold A golden ray flashes across the serene distress and I never felt so high as a Tucson lullaby. The traffic of the dawn begins its single file across the Saguaro west and the sage along the miles Cactus hearts beating in the silence worth repeating and I never felt so high as a Tucson lullaby Our names may have changed but our souls have taken hold We may take on the world now we know where to go I've got legs to run I've got legs to hide away from this shadowy cluttered world and the strangers by my side Someday the picture fits when the puzzle angles fly and I never felt so high as a Tucson lullaby and I never felt so high as a Tucson lullaby.

Lost Time 03:10
Lost Time What do you say when you're lonesome? What do you say when you're mad? Do you let time heal you or do you dream of something you had? Where does a dead word go when left in the mind? I want to give but you won't let me live and lost time is so unkind. What do you wish for my lover when somehow we're in the same room? Do you wish just ot be left alone or do you hunger what I hunger too? Where does a dead dream go when left unheard inside? I want to give but you won't let me live but lost time is so unkind. Are we ready to take on the mountains? Or are we ready to let the dead slide? We'll create the past and the future every time upon dreams we'll decide Where does a decision go when left uninspired inside? When you want to give I will let you live or your lost time is so unkind.

Song About My Home I'll sing a song about my home A home on every shore Everywhere I go I'm pulling into home Friends I've made out on the road Will sing along to songs I made They made the song their own I'll sing a song about my home. People of every race and creed Every political stance come together under song Everywhere they sing and dance Can't say I don't feel at home with the whole world on my side No matter where I go I'd sing a song when I come home. Can't believe these wounds have healed These hearts hung on so long I just try to make them smile we play and sing we can't go wrong How do the people grow when there's no song in their heart? They make a song their own and sing a song about their home.

You're On Your Side Ain't it sad how differences divide us and we all have so much to say? But when we're all left alone we all want the same love anyway? Some are on roads no one knows so why condemn them no one grows? Understand - our differences unite us against the forces of our foes. I hold my breath and I say a prayer through the sweet and peaceful tones of my guitar Is the only way to unite this world is to see it shining from afar? Ain't it sad - how greed divides us the root for all the grasping for control When we can sit this whole game out Tolerance or not we're in their hole. There you go You're on your side and I'm not going to come your way. I'll admire how we've all been bribed by this way of life to throw it all away And our true foes are at the top Keeping us satiated in this run down sweatshop they act as saviors but are we saved when we've divided all this world we could call our own?

The Ballad Of Blind McGee Blind McGee was a desert son He rode his Harley out to the Bear Creek Run He got out his old .44 and shouted "there ain't no one in this world but me!" He rid the world of broken souls with his wild patch eye and his cowboy boots with holes He couldn't find a lover to save his soul There was no one in this world but Blind McGee. He took his last breath riding high A shotgun dream of an open road But nobody knew where McGee was Nobody knew him anymore. He was promising once Forgotten now He cared no more for the games of time So he rode on miles and miles alone McGee was dead by 29.

No Tears Would Cross My Eyes I rode into town and found a lesson there in the summer of 07 there were times I cried for air there were angels in the mornings and friends to walk a mile but I couldn’t find the music in a song (chorus) couldn’t find the melody I couldn’t find the spirit I was sad that I was crying but no tears would cross my eyes my voice was making noise and the guitar strummed the chords but I couldn’t find the melody the song was from my mind I stood on the stage and the people strained to listen they slowly left the room as the song filled the air then I saw in the corner a young boy there was weeping he’d heard the words but he said my voice did not appear to care (Chorus) I tried to find the song and I sang it again later the boy then began smiling and he knew I’d found the light seemed for all the ages I’d been singing for the people but when you sing for God it can take the darkness from the night (Chorus)

Everyone Has Light (Chorus) Don’t let them convince you that you’re not so special everybody has their truth everyone has light no one who knows you has power above you to tell you you’re wrong when deep inside you’re right Packing up a suitcase wondering what it all meant why did everything end with confusion around us somehow our pain inside was triggered but to show and made into our flow and now nowhere to go Stay with the worlds you know you love that if the sky fell above that world would save you ask if you would commit again probation never ends and ask your self would you do it all over (Chorus)

It's The Time For Love It's not the time for picking sides It's the time for love It's not the time for wearing pride it's the time for love Go about your day to day and know the power in what you do or say it all starts with a thought of too much pain we've had enough It's the time for love. Time to heal before you feel It's the time for love Time to deal with the steering wheel It's the time for love You can go anywhere you want today Open your eyes don't let them take them away but the best thing to do with your time today is to find the love. Remember the times you lived by love Remember the times your friends went with love? Time to heal before you feel It's the time for love Time to deal with the steering wheel It's the time for love Go about your day to day and know the power in what you do or say but the best thing to do with your time today is to find the love.

Pass On The Right It's not your fault you're around It's all in my mind It's not your fault I'm down or that I want to leave you behind This dream will surely shatter and I guess this decision is mine I can pass on the right on my way to paradise I can pour gas on cinders the cinders remain cold when the flames return to earth and disappointment does unfold I can give to the taker all that I've thrown away I can carry on believing or I can learn to pay I can pass on the right on my way to paradise and drive with tunnel vision against this world's advice Because inside my heart is calling and you're too slow to answer to mine I think I'll pass on the right on my way to paradise. It's not your fault you're around It's all in my mind It's not your fault I'm down or that I want to leave you behind This dream will surely shatter and I guess this decision is mine I can pass on the right on my way to paradise I can pass on the right on my way to paradise and drive with tunnel vision against this world's advice Because inside my heart is calling and you're too slow to answer to mine I think I'll pass on the right on my way to paradise.

Leaving Town Blues You can run all the way to California You can hide in the brambles by the tides Winter calls somewhere a blanket now is falling and I miss those lonely days where I dreamed of where I'm now. (Chorus) Ain't it funny how it feels to know the past is waiting in the wings? Ain't it too good to be real so the past won't chain what good tomorrow brings? Think back to the times you could be living now if you so choose Heartbreak everyday gives you those unlock the doors I'm leaving town blues The blues are always there Just choose the blues that will keep you living. Fate won't make you true Just paying back some trick of life. If things went the way you wanted there'd be no passion in the brambles there'd be heaven in those heartbeats and no shadows 'neath the strife. (Chorus)

On Your Own And Lonesome Getting hard to breathe around here reality checks ain't paying the bills I'm surviving all this thriving taking favors from open tills She's got me right where she wants me everything that's broken will fade. Celebrating being sober with all the memories I ain't made (Chorus) When you're own your own and lonesome Thank the stars for your time for your freedom to fly anywhere blow out of town any time What you're wishing for is stagnation and closing doors around your mind It's a sin getting older with less you'd keep than you'd leave behind. I'm running out on friendships because their smiles won't pay my rent I'm looking for some meaning in how my fleeting times are spent I should be bred to hustle but what if this was all an accident? Would I be in a boat in Cuba or living in a highway tent? (Chorus)
12.
To Live Again And Die I’d hate to be a baby today no friends starting out from scratch fresh out of the hatch in a world about to end (Chorus) the good Lord shook me down up in the sky and sent me back down to live again and die Sign on the highway saying they got what I crave a couple of years of doing time if I had my way (Chorus) Border guards with broken hearts ain’t gonna let me pass I just drove a 20 minute mile with a big stick up my ass (Chorus) (Bridge) You’ll miss the boat if you ain’t floating and there ain’t love in the crowd no one listens to old souls these days they just want sunshine on their clouds They want someone around to give them roses and not look for exit signs build a mountain someone wants to climb and never say goodbye (First verse and Chorus)

Everything Is Time The flags are loud and proud while I meditate on divisions and whistle a tune that never made it in the current world. It's easy to see why this is where no soul should die but utopia is being sidelined by greed unfurled (Chorus) And I'll hold my head up high keep smiling through the lies keep shining to the tides everything is time No matter what I see I won't let it discomfort me And I'm not going to go away anytime soon. You can subscribe to anything that makes your heart bone ring that makes your spirit sing if you want to. But you can keep 99 of it away so all I see is a sunny day and a pristine world around me humming my tune. (Chorus)
