Track Name: Where I'm Going
You think you know where I’m going the truth is I haven’t got a clue / one thing I know where I’m going there won’t be another you / and that don’t mean that I found another man / and that don’t mean that I’ll fall in love again / w this ship is sailing it don’t need a captain of the crew / where this train is traveling the tracks lead me far away from you / and that don’t mean that I’ll find another man / and that don’t mean that I’ll fall in love again / love is a choice every morning not some fuzzy feeling in the room / I never needed your company but I surely longed for you / yeah I surely long for you / I’m not running from a home we built for two / I’m chasing the winds, I’m leaving on whims and I’m learning a thing or two / you think you know where I’m going / the truth is you haven’t got a clue
Track Name: Let No Grief
Maybe one day you’ll wipe the dust off my face and see me again / give me that dazed look that I love and make me remember when we were together with such joy exuding from us like a fountain/ spilling between us at such a great pace like melting snow on a mountain / now I have to sing something louder than I have before / so I escape this overwhelming pain and never hurt no more / the seasons are changing and supposedly I have to as well / my heart is pacing and I have to break free from your spell / I was lifted above ground now I have been placed back down below / but love has that power to make you fly when you’ve been feeling so low / Please speak sweet to me / oh somber hearted let no grief destroy the time we have to be close quiet and free / maybe one day you’ll wipe the dust off my face and see me again
Track Name: Blind and Brave
What's the difference between night and day besides the people that come/ and the people who stay/ the feeling of love/ and the feeling of hate/ the big light in the sky and the darkness of age/ the time that is passed and the time that you wait/ You really must love it all/ don't go out at night/ don't walk down that lane/ the people from this place/ they're all afraid/ but you are new here/ so blind and so brave/ so you'll see the lights/ and you'll hear the parade/ so go join their call/ indulge in their praise/ do it 'cause you love it all/ do it 'cause you love this city/ 'cause you love it all/ do it 'cause you love this city/ 'cause you love it all/ well you really must love it all/ I won't waste your time/ and I won't rid you of your pride/ if you don't rid me of mine/ yeah if you don't rid me of mine/ I ain't moving out/ I ain't moving on/ my feet are on the ground/ hear the voices of the young/ do it 'cause you love it all/ do it 'cause you love this city/ you showed me how to love it all
Track Name: Foreigner
You looked down at your cup and you won’t look back up / it’s the last time I saw your eyes / I’d forgotten their color, their shape, and their flutter / it’s been that long since you’d looked in mine / and there’s a lover in my head / and there’s a stranger in my bed / and I won’t know until the morning comes / you started to lose all your color, all your proof / and I’ve wondered if you’ve moved on / those brown eyes in the morn’ that tee shirt that I adore / that terrible haircut / and there’s a lover in my head / and there’s a stranger in my bed / I thought I knew those eyes / but there’s a foreigner inside / See I had this thought that we’d pick up where we left off / but it turns out I was a fool / when I came to visit you I barely recognized you under your new neighborhood / thought I knew his eyes / but there’s a foreigner inside
Track Name: Of All The Dreams
I was a daisy white and true / and you were a violet wild and blue / and we danced in the springtime air / I was an oak tree old and wise / and you were the field in which I’d lie / we grew together, forever tangled in the dirt / but of all the things I could be I want to be with you / and of all the dreams I could dream I want to dream of you / I was a firefly on a southern summer night / and you were the child drawn to my light / you finally caught me and kept me in your favorite glass jar / I was a traveler in search of gold and you my companion the open the road / we shared a path that only stars could make / I was a poet alone with my thoughts / and you were my poems all I got / you shared my story long after I was gone / I was the moon full of light / and you were the wolf howling at the night / you waited for me with every setting sun / but of all the things I could be I want to be with you / and of all the dreams I could dream I want to dream of you / of all the things I could be I want to be with you / and of all the dreams that I’ve dreamed my favorite one is you / ‘cause you are the one I want
Track Name: Love Letter
I wrote my first love letter at 21 years old / I wrote my first love letter and I waited for the post / to see if I’ll have courage to send you all my soul / I wrote my first love letter / now I can’t seem to let it go / it cost me three cents extra to get it packed with care / but baby this one’s fragile so if you read please beware / what’s my fate, what’s my fate / If I should ever send this page / oh be brave, oh be brave / it’s too late / if I ever gain the courage before we’re old and grown / when you read my letter it’s gon’ rock your heart and soul / ‘cause baby in that letter is my love written so bold
Track Name: Judgement
When I rise I’m awakened by sun / and it calls me home / when I’m home I weep for lost / when I’m home I regret the cost / of the grudge I hold / a family lost over silver and gold / a family conned me for everything I own / but that was long ago / and mom said stop the Lord will judge he’ll bring wrath to those who’ve done us wrong, and ignite their souls / as the seeds they fall to ground we lose to grief / regret we must sound the sirens through the house / ‘cause if we don’t we won’t ever learn that we must progress through our hurt / so sound the siren now / and I must rise and awaken the sun I will rise and scream for the sun and bring light home / ‘cause we’re all stuck waiting for a sunrise / we’re all stuck waiting or the light to make things right / I will rise and awaken the sun / I will rise and scream for the sun and bring light home
Track Name: When I Go
When I came I came in peace / I had just been released / when I came I came in peace/ when I pray each day away / I hope the good Lord will wash my sins away / when I sing my heart bells ring / and the birds they reply and I’m part of everything / when we kiss please don’t miss / ‘cause my lips are like my hips / They swing and you might miss / when I dream I see real things / and I don’t fear the future dear / I saw it in my dreams / when I hurt I know that I’m alive / ‘cause it’s then my heart beats and it pumps me back to life / so when I go may it be in peace / then I’ll know at the very least / when I go I’ll go in peace
Track Name: Recognize
I had this great idea / that I could turn into someone new / he don’t see me in a crowd / so I will change his view / and if he only sees with his eyes / then I will make him recognize the truth / all the girls will see my insecurity / all the boys will take a second look at me / as I walk around with my heart racing / I will look for him like he is all I need / all I need / and when he sees my great appeal / he’ll finally sense what I feel / and he will take my hand / and I will follow him / follow him / all the girls will see my insecurity / all the boys will take a second look at me / as I walk around with my heart racing / I will look for him like he is all I need / all the girls will wonder what’s wrong with me / all the boys will stop and say hey baby / hey baby / ain’t it a girls way of messing up her pride? / ain’t it a woman’s way of making it on the outside? / well it ain’t right / It ain’t right / I will not agree to follow him / she cannot agree to follow him / while she’s blind / I will not agree to follow him from behind
Track Name: Lock and Key
For you I broke the lock and buried the key / come find me you said to meet you down by the sea / I’m alright tonight / ring the bells, I’m standing on my own two feet / I can see all the people who don’t see me / I’m alright tonight / ‘cause my heart drums to it’s own beat in a city that never dreams / for you I broke the lock and I buried the key / yeah I buried the key / so I’ll wait for you here where you said love would be / with my eyes on the sky where it meets the sea / it’s alright I’m alone tonight / ‘cause my heart drums to it’s own beat in a world that’s always asleep / for you I broke the lock and I buried the key / courage carry me across the danger
