Track Name: Oh Mama
Don’t suggest what I’m thinking
I’m gonna be truthful
When I feel you’ve laid down all your arms

You’ve always got good intentions
I know you’re no devil
But I grow weary when you play the part

I just need to be heard
Speak my mind without questions
And feel easy

I’m no problem to solve
My troubled heart just needs time, Dear
A slow healing

Oh Mama, oh Mama
Listen to my song
My mind is full of worry
My heart is full of doubt

Give me space and some freedom
To be what I’m feeling
Gain some footing on this shaky ground

Babe, you’ve gotta believe me
I wanna be near you
But for now I need to be alone

There are times I am strong
And other times I am weak, Dear
I won’t argue

There are days I believe
And other days I am doubtful
My heart fading

Oh Mama...

We hold a love that always shakes things up
We hold a love that makes us carry on

Oh Mama...
Track Name: I'm A Rose
Vultures dance in figure-eights in the sky
Children, always curious, wonder why
They don’t know, down below
A death has ensued
Their beaming eyes stay fixed on
The spinning black against blue

I’m a rose, I’m a weed
I’m a super model, I’m a gamin
A branch, a seed
I stand at both ends,
And I’m in between
How do you see me now?
Things could get turned around

Princes roam as paupers out on the street
Once adorned, now soiled down to their feet
Everyone, from old to young has worth in their bones
Still the masses pass by hurrying to get home

I’m a rose...

Oh, I’ve waited for an open door
To show my way outside
When across the room, within my view
Is a window open wide

I can see my heart is willing to believe
But my eyes are blind to how I may receive

I’m a rose...
Track Name: Out On The Road
Out on the road
Burning up fuel
Far from the noise
Busy and cruel

The wide open fields
Are coming in view
The grass is all dead
But spring's coming soon

Out on the road
Where no signal comes through
I'm turning my thoughts
To remembering you

The birds overhead
Are lifting me up
The river below
Is filling my cup

Out on the road
Taking my time
Thinking of you

Out in the wind
Brushing my face
Calling me home
To a quieter place

Breathing the air
Making me clean
Lifting my hands
Letting me be

Out on the road
Taking my time
Thinking of you...
Track Name: Go Together
Put your arms
Around my neck
We’ll go together

We’ll turn this thing around
Try not to settle down
Get our feet up off the ground
‘Til we know

Hold my hand
Hold my hand
We’ll walk together

Should we, or should we not
Give it a second thought?
We’ll I can’t connect the dots
So, I don’t know

But what have we got to lose?
Just our workin’-brother-blues
So, come on, put on your shoes
Here we go

Someone’s in flat-bed truck
With his head hung low
There’s a dog on the side of the road
Takin’ it slow

I see clouds of dust
Swallowing the sunset’s glow
This isn’t what we thought it would be
But it’s good to know

Young boys and girls
Are given new eyes to see
Locked doors are open
When we give up the keys

And if we get lost
Falling down to our knees
Well Babe, just remember
I got you, and you got me
I got you, and you got me!
Track Name: If Your Head Is Made Of Wax
If your head is made of wax
If your head is made of wax
If your head is made of wax
Don’t go walkin’ in the sun, no, no, boy
Don’t go walkin’ in the sun

If your hair is made of steel
If your hair is made of steel
If your hair is made of steel
Don’t go dancin’ in a storm, no, no, boy
Don’t go dancin’ in a storm

Boy, you better listen
Better take it straight from me
I’ve been livin’ by these words since 1963

If your head is made of wax
If your head is made of wax
If your head is made of wax
Don’t go walkin’ in the sun, no, no, boy
Don’t go walkin’ in the sun

If your hands are made of straw
If your hands are made of straw
If your hands are made of straw
Don’t go startin’ up a fire, no, no, boy
Don’t go startin’ up a fire

Boy, you better listen
Better make your two ears sore
You come around again
I’ll be sure to give you more!

If your heart is made of glass
If your heart is made of glass
If your heart is made of glass
Don’t go fallin’ in-love, no, no, baby
Don’t go
Track Name: I Will Rise For You
I feel heavy now
My fingers quiver underneath a gun
My legs feel buried in the dirt
But I’m ready for the run

Streaks of gold light the sky
In endless smoke and cloud
My sight lies steady on the hill
I’ll make death, or meet my own

I heard the call, took my place
My mother-dear, kissed my face
I will rise for you!

Shots ring, 10,000 bells,
Against my temple drums
Silhouettes on the hill
Drop like aimless bombs

Blood pours out on the ground
From my wounded enemies
One’s eyes lie open in the light
Staring back at me

I heard the call...

We move onward through the fire
Sons and daughters, mines and wire
Blazing like the sun

Abraham took his son
Up the hill with a gun
I will rise for you

An angel cast the gun aside
And spoke to Abe, God will provide
I will rise for you!
Track Name: Saint Maria
Lilium
Petals white as snow
Candidum
On the mountains where you grow

A shepherd’s star
Shining in the sun
A kingdom’s seal
Among thorns overrun

And I won’t be afraid
No, I won’t hide in the shade
When the moment calls for courage
I’m gonna stand

Saint Maria with tangled hair
Innocent eyes, and a mother’s care
No child laughing on your knee
You were uprooted by your own family tree
Madonna lilies stained in red
On the side of your hospital bed
Oh, your body was broken
But your soul never bled

Lift your eyes
To where your help comes from
The mountain spies
Testify to everyone

And I won’t be afraid
No, I won’t hide in the shade
When the moment calls for glory
I’m gonna stand

Saint Maria...
Track Name: Confession
I’m a fading flame
I can’t say when I began to dim
Born to know the truth
God is not gonna give up on me yet

I’ve been reaching out my hands
In the dark for far too long
Hoping I could feel my way
To where my heart belongs

I’ve made no quiet place
Where I can hang my coat
And let myself be known
Honest and exposed

Who can know the truth?
I can only guess we’re half-awake
Walking in a dream
And it scares me half to death
To think I’m right

There’s just too much trouble
Breaking ground beneath my feet
To think that I could keep on walking
And never know defeat

Come inside with me
We’ll hang up our coats
Let ourselves be known
Honest and exposed

I’ve been reaching out my hands
In the dark for far too long
Hoping I could feel my way
To where my heart belongs

Come inside with me
We’ll hang up our coats
Let ourselves be known
Honest and exposed
Track Name: Live Life Slow
You were a young girl
And we were just friends those days
Carefree and simple
Trouble was miles away

We walked in the springtime
Sang out a song all the way
Our melodies blooming
Our harmonies tangled and stray

It wasn’t long before we knew
This was love
We let it grow, year by year
Warm as a glove

Leaves were caught falling
Over our heads in the frame
Bright red and yellow
The day that I gave you my name

We made a home,
Hand in hand, side by side
Some days were clear, others dark
We laughed and we cried

And I won’t let go
And I won’t let go now

Now we are older
Life seems to pass us by
We spend our days spinning
The pace of life runs us dry

We hear it said, open up
Take what you can
It sound so good
But I find myself
Lost in the span

And I won’t let go
And I won’t let go now

When life moves too fast, Dear
The things that I love begin to choke
I need you to hear me
I need you to know this ain’t no joke

We’ve all got soil
Down where we know who we are
Don’t let it turn dry as stone
Live life slow

What a beautiful sky tonight
What a beautiful sky
How grateful am I tonight
Track Name: I'm Still Sleeping
When you walk down the hall
I can hear, I can hear you
When you walk down the hall
I can hear, and I’m still sleeping
When you walk down the hall
6:00 a.m., and I can hear you
Don’t wake the baby

When you open the door
I can hear, I can hear you
When you open the door
I can hear, and I’m still sleeping
When you open the door
6:00 a.m., and I can hear you
Don’t wake the baby

The sun is rising over head
I’m hiding in our bed
I’m dreaming you’re asleep next to me, Dear

Birds are singing in the trees
Criss-crossing melodies
I’m silent with the lullaby of breathing
