Track Name: Here Tonight
You were walking
with no shoes on your feet
Just getting your toes dirty
skipping stones on the lake
And I did not cry
'til you wandered away

Now you're hiding
with a shameful soul
And child what ya done
Sent shivers through your bones
Now that you've seen
all the dirt on your toes
You don't know where to go
or where to run

So come find me
in a mountain stream
To cool your bones and bring your peace
If your burdened soul
can't find the morning light
I'm here tonight

You're gonna stumble
until you're knee-deep in the water
with your chest heaving
and those tears on your face
have been blaming me
But I'm clean and you're clean
Though ya don't feel your soul
or see the son...

Come find me
in a mountain stream
To cool your bones and bring your peace
I your burdened soul
can't find the morning light
I'm here tonight

Come find me, come find me
I'll set your mind at ease
Your aching soul, is gonna make it home
That's one thing I believe

Come on back home
It's gonna be alright
These open arms are a welcome sight
If your burdened soul
can't find the morning light
I'm here tonight
Track Name: She Got Your Love
He wanna be somebody, he wanna
build a corporation on the moon
He wants to be the president
He wants to be something they won't forget, like
Another hundred-million dollar man
With a leather brief case and a california tan
He breathes in takes off his Ray-Bans says
"Listen to me baby, Imma count down from 10,
9, 8, I'm alright late for my
blue tooth rendezvous that just can't wait, but
Keep giving your love to baby cause
10 seconds won't change it, okay?"

She got your love,
if you want it come on
But if ya don't, then let go man,
let go man, 'cause
She got much more
than you ever deserved
So if ya don't mind
the honey-moon's over, let go
So I can hold her

She's got a whole lotta love to give
but he's been busy, and he don't miss her now
He never has, since they met
But that's one fact, she tried to forget 'cause
She wants to be loved
But the only love she knows comes without any clothes on
And she sees what it's like on T.V.
And she says, "Why am I so unhappy?"
She breathes and she counts to ten
But when she opens her eyes he's gone again
No more waiting,
like ten more years gonna change it okay?

She got your love,
if you want it come on
But if ya don't, then let go man,
let go man, 'cause
She got much more
than you ever deserved
So if ya don't mind,
the honey-moon's over, let go
So I can hold her

I can hold her, when the sun sets
When it goes down, when it goes down
I can hold her, when the sun rise
and you're not around, and you're not around

She had your love,
but you had another lover
And I won't, man I won't
be afraid to say
She had much more
than you ever deserved
So if ya don't mind,
the honey-moon's over, let go
So I can hold her
Track Name: Sister
Take you out for supper
We had too much conversation for the evening
I dare say
Talking of the old house
and backyard tumbling, we were dreaming
of better days

I got a friend, got a whole lot
of what I don't got
It's what I need
A friend, with a whole shot of love

Take me home, and bring me back
Take me home, down on Ramcat
Down on Ramcat,
Oh sister

Taking older memories
and just sticking em in scrapbooks in the corner
on the shelf
Thinking how we used to laugh together
'cause of something,
I still can't tell

I got a friend, got a whole lot
of what I don't got
It's what I need
A friend, with a whole shot of love

Talk of what we laughed of
'til we cried to asleep

I got a friend, got a whole lot
of what I don't got
It's what I need
A friend, with a whole shot of love

Take me home, and bring me back
Take me home, down on Ramcat
Down on Ramcat,
Oh sister

Thank you for the supper
we had too much conversation for the evening
I dare say
Track Name: Monopoly
Baby you've got
a monopoly on my heart
I can't see straight
and you've got all of the
utilities, electricity
I got a fist full of nothing with no capabilities
You're holding Boardwalk, Pacific Avenue
I got a cardboard box and some raggedy tennis shoes
(I thought that you should know)
Just give me a chance so I can pass go

I can't win,
when you're playing your games
I can't win
when you wait the dice
and play your hands that way
I can't win,
when you're playing your games
baby, baby come on

Hold up, wait a minute
Baby, Tisk, tisk
What's that? I didn't mean it!
Get out! Whoa...
Hold up,
Wait.
Baby, Tisk, tisk
What's that? I didn't mean it!
Get out! Whoa...

I can't win,
when you're playing your games
I can't win
when you wait the dice
and play your hands that way
I can't win,
when you're playing your games
baby, baby come on

I know sorry doesn't cut it so I'm not
I know there's no 'buts' but you've got
Tricks up your sleeve
From your socks,
To your legs
From your dress
to your knees
to your

Eyes can't win,
when you're playing your games
I can't win
when you wait the dice
and play your hands that way
I can't win,
when you're playing your games
baby, baby come on
Track Name: Moses
The river's rising, the sunlight's fading
The crocodile looking for a little baby
He's in a basket, staring at the moon
Lord keep him safe from the river's tomb

Little Moses floated down that stream
They fished him out, of the grasses and the weeds
They took him in and I heard his cry
He didn't wanna leave his momma's side, he said

I don't wanna be the only one
Lord, I don't wanna be the only one
Now I aint scared of tomorrow's sun
But I don't wanna be the only one
No!

Lord you know it aint me that ya need
I'm just a baby that they found in the weeds
You free your people with your own hands
there's got to be another man you can

'Cause I don't wanna be the only one
Lord, I don't wanna be the only one
I aint scared of tomorrow's sun
But I don't wanna be the only one
No! No, no no no no
No no no no, no no
No, no no
no no no no no no
No

But Father if you're gonna stay with me
like when you saved me from the river's beasts
these filthy hands can work for you
Lord I can try, what you asked me to
But I don't wanna be the only one
Track Name: Kings
We used to be kings,
with no filth and no scum
we were brighter than violet and sharper than steel
until you came along
And you came like hell.
Oh you ravaged and raged
Against all that we loved, against all that we cherished,
and all that we praised

And I’m through
yeah I’m through
being your slave

We used to be fine,
we were feeling alright
We had people to love, and we loved everyone
every day every night
But I’m holding you close,
so close to my soul
If you think things are fine well you better rewind
cause I think your alone

And I’m through
yeah I’m through
You know I'm through
yeah I'm through
being your slave

In the springtime we sang,
we had more than enough
It was you, it was me, and our God he made three
and we knew we were loved
But after the fall,
well we’re losing our faith
Cause it’s cold and it’s painful
I feel all my chains when I’m trapped in this place

You know I’m through
yeah I’m through
You know I'm through
yeah I'm through
being your slave
Track Name: Doctor
Well I had a physician,
she barely knew my name
and who’d have guessed, that flowery dress
could bloom such a pretty face
Well I’m not one to mix up,
where ya work and where ya play
But ya better bet, I was sick to death,
from January
until first of May

I said,
Tear me open and stitch me shut
But doctor don’t ya see
That this ol fever’s gonna burn me up
if you don’t attend to me

Well I listed my symptoms
but she saw, through it all
‘Said “it’s allergies that make you sneeze,
and the cough is just a cough
Yeah the only thing that’s wrong with you,
is too much alcohol...”
So I ran home and grabbed the phone
and I gave her another call

I said,
Tear me open and stitch me shut
But doctor don’t ya see
That this ol fever’s been burning me up
since you laid hands on me
Cause I been sick, since I first saw you
and now I can barely breathe
with this ol fever just burning me up
And miss doctor you’re just what I need

so would you stay with me
aw if you're free
would you stay with me?
come on baby please?
would you stay with me?

So she ran her tests and I did my best not to
sneak a couple of peeks
But I lost my sight in those big green eyes,
And can ya really blame me
Cause that golden hair was made to wear
a wild flower threaded through
So on the first of may I asked her to stay,
and be my month of june

I said tear me open and stitch me shut
But baby don't ya see
That this 'ol fever’s been burning me up
Since you laid hands on me
Cause I been sick, since I first saw you
and now I can barely breathe
with this ol fever just burning me up
miss doctor,
you’re just what I need

So would you stay with me
