Track Name: Dearest Dear
long are the days when it’s pouring doubt in the morn
or when the sun sets low and all I see are storms
chase me round this weathered house and you’ll find care
search a little further and you’ll discover snares
the traps are set, yes they are mine, I apologize
kiss me sweetly ‘pon my brow and I’ll be pleased
lie in bed with me all day, you’re all I need
follow me oh dearest dear, I’ll be your light
take my hand and walk with me, feel no fright
I’ll hold you close, never let you go
I’ll hold you close
Track Name: You're All I Need
I know you must go, but feel the weight of my shoes
this house it echoes, without you here to fill your chair
who will consume my love? it’s warm, and rising for you
I wanna feel your comfort
you’re where I wanna be
I wanna feel your comfort
you’re where I wanna be
time it is ticking, I know it won’t be long
but I cannot stand to be here when you are gone
I wanna feel your comfort
you’re where I wanna be
I wanna feel your comfort
you’re where I wanna be
Track Name: The Flood
you’ll never know my heart
till you’ve wept from both my eyes
tears bursting out
for the flood is rising high
you don’t want to know my life
you don’t want to see how I live
dreadful disorder is all you’ll discover
when you take that regretful stride into my room
I often do ponder what it takes to recover
from witnessing all that I am
from witnessing all that I am
you’ll never know my heart
till you’ve wept from both my eyes
tears bursting out
for the flood is rising high
for the flood is rising high
for the flood is rising high
Track Name: Your Lips
tell me something I do not already know
I’d like to hear it from your lips
tell me something I’ve never seen you say before
I’d like to hear it from your lips
I know your pride
I know your lies
I ask you so delicately
I ask you, consider me
I wanna see your naked eyes
as they gleam in front of mine
hidden not behind the walls
that keep me from your denial
speak to me, through that wicked kissing machine
you know I always play along
it just ain’t fair, how you take advantage of me and my weak knees
you know they always give way
you know they always give way
you know they always give way
you know they always give way
tell me something I do not already know
I’d like to hear it from your lips
Track Name: For You
let’s take a train ride to who knows where
tell me you’re scared and I’ll still be there
I’m buying two tickets for the northern express
I’ll watch for thieves while you take a rest
brace for the cold, it’s coming up fast
when you fly away and I stay back
you grasp my hand and clench it so tight
won’t let me forget that we’ll face this fight
Track Name: Jack & Jill
jack and jill went up the hill
to see what trouble they could discover
jack, with a scheming wide grin on his face
jill, a sly demeanor

not a minute went by before jack did surmise,
“this hot stinkin day needs a bit more surprise
wouldn’t you say little sis?”

the boy, he did climb up the tallest oak tree
and like any old day he brought his rope
he chose the thickest branch for its sprawling long arm
by trapeze, he did play jokes

on every passerby who looked up to sky
searching for a birds call, above them so high
but it was him, the boy, jack, he did fly

down upon strangers and friends alike
jack relished mischief oh he did cry
out loud, “I’m gonna burn this town to the ground”
out loud, “I’m gonna burn this ol’ town to the ground”
Track Name: St. Peter
st. peter and his royal cavalry
lost their way at the great red sea
luckily moses was standing by, staff in hand
to raise the waters on the lord’s command

the stars were shining bright that night
over bethlehem’s glorious twilight
where the son, man, god on earth
created himself through miraculous birth

so we wave the mighty flag and shout the righteous name
for all we do is done through you
we beg, we thank, we pray

when peter looked up he saw the lord’s face
directing him onward to lead his parade
by way of the lord, moses did part
the sea for the cavalry ready to charge

“let there be light!” he commanded the skies
“burn for my son and the rock of my life!”
the baby boy cries for life to begin
and all those who’ll watch him die for their sins

so we wave the mighty flag and shout the righteous name
for all we do is done through You
we beg, we thank, we pray
Track Name: Cannonball River
a town not so populous, hearts beat so strong
cannonball river meanders along
passion so bright the stars needn’t shine
for the people have something they simply can’t hide
out on the prairie where the west begins
the water is rich and the soil it gives
hope for the needy
repair for the beaten
life everlasting
soul gone without reason
streets paved wide for a glorious parade
women, children, men of all age
banners held high with no regrets
a life come and gone only notes linger left
all the town gathers to carry his name
never forget what a legend has paved
hope for the needy
repair for the beaten
life everlasting
soul gone without reason
Track Name: Farewell Song
fold your hands
embrace your hearts
you’re all I need
safe within your memories
spent some time passing through
all those autumn days
red, orange, auburn, yellow I craved
say farewell all my loves
all I’ve held so dear
time has called my soul to live
where there is no fear
wipe your tears don’t mourn for long
I’ve found my resting place
time has called my soul to live
where there is no age
say farewell all my loves
all I’ve held so dear
wipe your tears don’t mourn, my love
my love and only dear
