GIRL U ADORE

Hey, do you ever think of me? 
Do you wonder how I might be 
Am I still the girl you adore, or has time washed the magic away 

Last time I heard someone speak your name 
I got suddenly blue cause it isn’t the same 
Am I still the girl you adore, or has time washed the magic away 

I can still feel the breeze as it whispers through the trees 
And the look in your eyes as we sway 
We promised our love to the heavens above 
In the glow of that beautiful day 

You don’t have to worry, I’m doing okay 
But hey, don’t you worry why it went that way 
Am I still the girl you adore, or has time washed the magic away 

I can still feel the breeze as it whispers through the trees 
And the look in your eyes as we sway 
We promised our love to the heavens above 
In the glow of that beautiful day 

You don’t have to worry, I’m doing okay 
But hey, don’t you worry why it went that way 
Am I still the girl you adore, or has time washed the magic away

MOVIN' ON 

Movin on yes I’m moving on again  
I feel so tired lord my soul is tired,  
moving on yes I’m moving on again I’m bound to roam again my soul is tired..  

lost my town and they cast out my people I got no shelter and I’m all alone..  
kill my spirit and burn my temple  I got no shelter lord I got no home..  

ahh..hear the voices calling thru the ages calling  
moving on again….moving on again…  

howling winds burning desert the cries of my people well they hang on my bones  
howling winds, burning desert, the cries of my people well they speak thru my bones  

ohh  feel the ages falling  thru the ages calling  
movin on again moving on again  

movin on yes I’m moving on again there’s somewhere my people calling calling my name  
left to roam In a burning desert-if I— don’t make it home will you remember my name?  
Remember my name

COCKTAIL HOUR 

Empty bottles on the bed stand 
Dirty dishes on the floor 
I could wash ‘em all I suppose 
But I’ll just dirty them some more 
The days are slipping by 
Like caramel sauce on ice cream 
Seems I’m losing track 
is it real or just a dream? 
Just one thing stands out 
Tonight’s cold whiskey sour 
Aint getting outta bed til cocktail hour 
Aint getting outta bed til cocktail hour 
Aint getting outta bed til cocktail hour 
Give me one good reason 

Old pizza on the counter 
Might heat it up for dinner 
better yet I like it cold 
Does that make me a sinner? 
The days are sliding by like egg whites on buttered toast 
Am I really here or have I turned into a ghost 
Just one thing stands out 
The weatherman predicts a shower 
Aint getting outta bed til cocktail hour… 

Don’t care if the skies are blue (bright) 
It might as well be raining 
Don’t care that I look like a fright 
There’s no-one here complaining 
The days are melting down like syrup in a soggy waffle 
Don’t wanna face the day, is that so awful? 
And wonder what my life’s about 
Just a cold whiskey sour 

Aint getting outta bed til cocktail hour 
Aint getting outta bed til cocktail hour 
Aint getting outta bed til cocktail hour 
Give me one good reason

YOU BETTER BELIEVE IT

I may be small, but I got no chains on me 
I may be small yo but my spirit is free 
Got no chains on me 
My spirit is free 
You better believe it 

I may be tired, but I’m just waking up 
I may be tired lord, yeah I’ve had some pain in my cup 
I’m just waking up, yeah.. 
I’m just waking up, yeah 
You better believe it 

I may be open but I’m not naive 
I may be open to you baby but I got some tricks up my sleeve 
You better believe it, you better believe it 
My spirit is free 

Got some magic stuff to do 
Still got some magic still left to do 

I may be 5 feet tall, but my spirit is not small 
I may be 5 feet tall, but my spirit its not small 
My spirit is free, my spirit is free 
You better believe it

THE NERVE

You’ve got the nerve, And I got the need 
Meet me outside by the big oak tree 
You got the nerve and I got the rest 
It took someone like you to put me to the test 

There’s a time to wait ..A time to take action 
Kettle’s boiling over..It’s a chemical reaction 

You lit a fire by the old oak tree 
You lit a fire by the old oak tree 
The gates are broken and the horses ran/runnin’ free 
You lit a fire inside of me 

You got the map and I got the treasure 
Come on take me with you baby gonna find it together 
We’ll turn the key and open the door 
Gonna find us/ourselves a place we’ve never been before 

There’s a time to wait ..A time to take action 
Kettle’s boiling over..It’s a chemical reaction 

You lit a fire by the old oak tree 
You lit a fire by the old oak tree 
The gates are broken and the horses ran/runnin’ free You lit a fire inside of me

TRAIL OF TEARS

GOING DOWN TO THE RIVER GONNA THROW MYSELF DOWN ON THE SAND 
GOING DOWN TO THE RIVER GONNA THROW MYSELF DOWN ON THE SAND 
IF THE ROCKS DON’T BREAK ME THERE’S A HARD HEARTED MAN WHO CAN

GOT SOME MISSISSIPPI MOONSHINE GONNA DROWN MY SORROWS AWAY 
AND I WON’T STOP TIL I’M DEAD TO THE LIGHT OF DAY 

IF YOU SEE ME COMIN BETTER LOCK YOUR DOOR AND HIDE 
IF YOU SEE ME COMIN BETTER LOCK YOUR DOOR AND HIDE 
JUST WAIT FOR THE REAPER TO TAKE ME TO THE OTHER SIDE

GOTTA WORLD OF SHAME TO KEEP ME FROM THE PLACE CALLED HOME 
CAN’T GET NO REST CAN’T FIND A PLACE TO LAY MY BONES 

GOING WAY UP IN THE MOUNTAIN GONNA BURN AWAY THESE YEARS 
GOING WAY UP IN THE MOUNTAIN GONNA BURN AWAY THESE YEARS 
CAUSE MY PEOPLE DONE LEFT ME, LEFT ME WITH A TRAIL OF TEARS 

I AINT GOT NO HISTORY THEY DONE BURNED MY HISTORY DOWN 
I AINT GOT NO HISTORY THEY DONE BURNED MY HISTORY DOWN 
GOT NO ONE TO CLAIM ME I’M DOWN HERE IN THE LOST AND FOUND 

GOING DOWN TO THE RIVER THROW MYSELF UPON THE SAND 
GOING DOWN TO THE RIVER THROW MYSELF UPON THE SAND 
IF THE ROCKS DON’T BREAK ME THERE’S A HARD HEARTED MAN WHO CAN

DADDY WHY

You been so busy at work you say you haven’t had the chance 
You finally took me to the movies for a little romance 
We were cuddling and kissing then you start to freak out 
When this girl sits down near us, what the hell is this about? 
You start telling her you’re sorry, and acting real ashamed 
She storms out in a huff, how does she even know your name? 
Daddy why..daddy why, daddy why you always got to have a little something extra going on the side 

Well you canceled again, said you were working late 
So I went out for a movie to treat myself to a date 
I sat across from this couple, they were getting real close 
Then I saw that it was you and you turned white as a ghost 
You started making excuses, started feeding me lines 
Don’t know why you keep on cheatin’ cause I catch you every time 
Daddy why, daddy why,  daddy why you have to have 
a little something extra going on the side? 

Bridge: 
You got a mess on your hands but it's of your own making 
you just can't turn it down if it's there for the taking 
then you put on your sad eyes, take hold of my hand 
try to make me forget that you're a two faced man 

Well you’re just like a junkie..You can’t be satisfied 
Always lookin for that new fix..Always seeking your next high 
Always looking at your phone ..Like your waiting for a call 
I’m standing right here baby ..But you don’t see me at all 
This right here’s the last straw..You done broke the camel’s back 
Your party's over mister —I’m gonna make damn sure of that 

Well I met your other girl at the grocery Gotta tell ya, she’s real nice 
She and I got to talking  BOY NOW DON'T WE SEE THE LIGHT 
We cut right through your story- sharp as a knife 
WE KNOCKED ON YOUR FRONT DOOR AND THEN WE MET YOUR LOVELY WIFE. 

Daddy why..daddy why, 
daddy why you always got to have a little something extra going on the side 

Don’t know how you sleep at night, Cause this time you gone too far 
And these two little wrongs done made a right 
Cause this time you gone too far 
And these two little wrongs done make it right!!

THE POISON

you came in on the wind last night 
i heard it like a song 
something wild and restless 
that's been here all along 
the longing and the craving 
like the rustling of the leaves 
Turned us into pariahs 
on frozen cliffs of dreams 

and we'll always meet this way 
when the wind wrestles in the snake 
the windows will be opened 
the pictures come awake 

your voice is so distinctive 
it cuts like heavy wine 

And i'll gladly burn in my own chair 
to feel the sting of what was there 
hard as steel, soft as blue 
jagged heartstrings plucked for you 

you came in on the wind last night 
angry like a song 
the poison had its way with us 
in the place where it belonged 
it blew in helter skelter 
and left the room in tatters 
the book we wrote together 
the only thing that matters 

And we’ll always meet this way 
When the serpent meets the blade 
The windows will be opened 
The pictures come awake 

the phone, the keys, the photograph 
the poison, just a sip 
clutched like drowning treasures 
from a sinking wooden ship 

i'll gladly burn in my own chair 
to feel the sting of what was there 
hard as steel, soft as blue 
Jagged heartstrings plucked for you

SALLIE MAE

I heard you say you were taking to your bed 
Lying awake with the covers pulled over your head 
Cryin in your pillow til you fall asleep 
Honey I never seen you sink so deep 
I know you better, you're gonna weather this storm 

Cheer up Sallie Mae, things are gonna be okay 
Well these hard times will turn into good times someday 
Cheer up Sallie Mae, believe me when I say 
I know you're tough, you got the stuff And you never give up 

You're the one who's cheering in the front row 
Now the world's gone crazy and you got no place to go 
When somebody needs you, you know just what to do 
I never met anyone quite as sweet as you 
You're gonna make it, No one can take it away 

Cheer up Sallie Mae, things are gonna be okay 
Well these hard times will turn into good times someday 
Cheer up Sallie Mae, believe me when I say 
I know you're tough, you got the stuff And you never give up

AIN'T NO SUCH THING

I need more than a lifetime baby 
To have my fill of you 
You turn me on every day 
I can’t imagine my life without you 

You bring more in one package 
Than a woman could ever desire 
You bring me the friendship baby 
And you bring me the fire 

There aint no such thing as too much of your good thing 
There aint no such thing as too much of your good thing 

I used to get my kicks acting 
A little bit daring and crazy 
Ran away when the going got rough 
In love you could say I was lazy 

But I don’t crave that kind of action 
it  doesn’t make me strong 
And I’m glad, so glad, that you found me 
Cuz I’m right here where I belong 

There aint no such thing as too much of your good thing 
There aint no such thing as too much of your good thing 
Well alright 

I’ve had my share of ups and downs 
I’ve spent years trying to figure it out 
Wondering if someone would finally come 
And show me what love is about 
It gets complicated but the key is to keep on trying 
If it’s real you’re gonna work it out 
If it’s real it gets better with time 

There aint no such thing as too much of a good thing 
There aint no such thing as too much of your good thing 
There aint no such thing as too much of your good thing 
There aint no such thing as too much of your good thing

SHAKE ME DISCOVER ME

Late at night, in the dark we played the stereo, the big wood console 
Laughed like grownup girls in the dark with the two coolest sisters 
At my school, Kathleen and Mary 
They looked much older than the rest of us, they had shiny brown hair 
And almost matching faces 
Long long legs strapped into their powder blue high heeled shoes 
No one else had 'em but Kathleen and Mary 

They liked Steppenwolf so I liked Steppenwolf 
The album with the purple foil cover 
We used to play “magic carpet ride” first, and rock out on the part 
Where the music changes, and go crazy when it comes back in, I want you to, 

Shake me, discover me, 
See who I really am 
Act like my best friend 
Act like my biggest fan 

We made a fort out in the living room using the pieces of the big gold couch 
Lying in the dark telling secret stories of the boys from my elementary school 
But even when they’d gone, and soon they were gone, 
I’d imagine I’m a rock star holding my microphone 
Nancy Sinatra said ‘these boots are made for walking’ that was me, that was me 
I’d imagine I’m a rock star 

No one could see me, no one could hear me, but I knew I’d be famous 
I knew I’d be famous one day..it was so easy, right in front of me 
It was mine already, I knew it could be, gotta 

Shake me, discover me, 
See who I really am 
Act like my best friend 
Act like my biggest fan 

Those were the days when music got inside of me, all alone, my piano for company 
Won’t you talk to me like a friend, not an aggravation, I wanna be best friends with somebody.. 
Those were the days when music got inside of me, all alone, my piano was my only 
Company.. but it never died… 

Shake me….
