I know the ticking of the clock

I know the rhythm of the tides

I know it's a quarter to midnight

and I'm acting like it's five to nine

everything that's on your mind
tell me all of your worries 
I'll tell you mine

you say your brother is screaming ,no one seems to hear

you say your sister is crying ,no one helps her dry her tears

I'm your family to , I know what you're going through

I have this hunger deep down in my soul
a void that can't be filled it feels like I'm never whole

if you feel that way to ..
then you know just what I'm going through 
well...

I know what you are going through

Track Name: fingers to the bone
fingers to the bone

I've been working my tried fingers to the bone
trying to find a place in time that I can call my own
the days and the nights are one
the work here is never done
there were things I was meant to do before I'm done

If i had a piece of land I would build myself a home
if I had a piece of land I would build myself a home
I get no help from up above
I have the strength and support from the woman I love
I'm working my tired fingers to the bone

I know I know I know

yippee ki yay, yippie ki yo
I'll keep working my tired fingers to the bone
yippee ki yay yippee ki yo
I'll keep working my tired fingers to the bone
to the bone
yippee ki yay it's all that I know
yippee ki yay yippee ki yo
Im working my fingers….. to the bone
yippee ki yaa here's what I know
I keep working my tired fingers
to the bone .
Track Name: as far as I can see
As far as I can see

Looking back as far as I can see
you have always taken care of me .
how many times I guess I'll never know
all the melodies and song

coming down through the radio
you're in my ear when Im dancing oh so slow
take me to places I don't even know
Sunset Park or San Francisco

Bringing the love supreme
Bringing the love supreme
come on and bring me the love supreme
bring the love

So for me I guess it's true to say
a blues can sometimes chase the blues away
Or there's a voice that stirs my heart and soul
that picks me up and moves me beyond

on the days of no remembering
I never doubt the gift that you will bring
I'm holding on never letting go
in my heart I know

You bring that love supreme
You will bring that love supreme
you bring that love supreme
you bring the love
You bring that love supreme
You will bring the love supreme
you bring the love supreme
you bring the love
Track Name: truth and consequences
truth and consequences


even the road to nowhere starts somewhere
I've been on that road a long time
lost without even knowing it
trouble all around me what ever way i turn
then i remember the last thing you said to me
" one day you're gonna to stop coming here"
" one day you're gonna think you're going somewhere else"
" but never forget this is where you belong "
"you belong here, you belong here"
"and I will always love you "

I hope you're still there
I'm coming I'm coming
25 to 40
up to albuquerque
truth and consequences lye ahead
to my right is Oklahoma
to my left is bullhead city
one side means trouble
the other means your bed
your bed
trouble
your bed
trouble
your bed
Track Name: who's that man
who's' that man

who's that man
who's that man leaving now on a journey home .
who's that man
who's that man he's all dressed up in his Sunday cloths

I think I knew him but I was just a child
I know that face and those forgive me eyes
who's the mans
who's that man quickly now before he leaves to go

who's that man
who's that man ,he knows now that his years are done
who's that man
who's that man oh so lonely but he was never alone .

I think I knew him but I was just a child
I wanted to be like him ,but only for a while
so who's that man
so who's that man , quickly now before he leaves to go.
swing low sweet chariot
coming for to carry him home
swing low sweet chariot
coming for to carry him home .
Track Name: the valley and the flood
The valley and the flood


I lived down in the valley

where the sun raged all day long

my blood was always boiling

all I could do was wrong

so I climbed up to a mountain top

where I could breath again

with my head up in the clouds

I whispered "let it rain"

I wished that it would rain

on the valley down below

I wished that it would rain to let the people know

that someone high above them

really knows and really cares

I whispered let it rain let them know you're there .

Well it rained for 40 days and nights

thats one almighty flood

washed away everything I owned

took the evil with good

now my mountain tops an island

my valley is a deep blue sea

pain sweat blood and tears

thats all thats left for me …

I wished that it would rain I wished that it would rain

and I wish that it would rain I wish that it would rain

and i wish that it would rain I wish that it would rain
Track Name: slowly comes the morning
Slowly comes the morning

slowly comes the morning , I'm awake before the dawn
a weeping wind is calling ,the dog is waiting at the door
the hills roll down to greet us as we walk along the shore
I thought I heard you call my name
like a hundred times before .
So I hurry down to see you ,and I hope this time you'll wait
I thought I heard you call my name
I hope I'm not to late .

Wait for me my darling I promise this to you
wait for me my darling you know my love is true
But once again the ocean has taken you away
I thought I heard you call my name
on this cold and lonely day.
Slowly comes the morning
I'm awake and you're gone
I thought I heard you call my name
like a hundred times before
I thought I heard you call my name
like a hundred times before
I thought I heard you call my name
like a hundred times before
I thought I heard you call my name
like a hundred times before
Track Name: St Theresa's
Saint Theresa's

Slow Tuesday night nothing much for us to do
nipping out for a pint that maybe one or two
heading down to St Theresa's Curly Larry and Mo
slow Tuesday night but then again you never know

come along for the ride just
come along for the ride
slow Tuesday night just
come along for the ride

Our usual table by the bandit we had a drink or three
I'm stepping up to get my round
something feels kind of wrong to me
I'm taking in the room ,to many faces I don't know
right then I skip my shout, tell the boys
we really need to go .

came along for the ride
they came along for the ride
slow Tuesday night ,come along for the ride
come along for the ride
just come along for the ride
slow Tuesday night ,come along for the ride

but before we reach the door
That cripple boy he stepped to me
he said"this really ain't your club anymore you fuckers need to leave "
Curly looked him in the eye
and said "you must have lost your mind
we leave when we want to leave
and that will be in our own sweet time

well they chased us up to the "Yard"
in a Dukes of Hazard style ..
we ignored all the lights not
knowing if to laugh or if to cry
we made it to the maisonettes
our boys stood in line
I waved to the cripple boy
said I'll see you said I'll see you
another place another time

came along for the ride
they came along for the ride
slow Tuesday night ,come along for the ride
come along for the ride
just come along for the ride
slow Tuesday night ,come along for the ride
Track Name: river boat song
the river boat song
The heat hung heavy like a warning
the air was still by the afternoon
when word came down the river
that a boat was coming soon
I held my breath in the moment
and wondered who I might see
I closed my eyes and prayed
there's someone on that boat for me

When Mary takes my hand.
and John strikes up the band
I hear the brothers laugh and sing
I remember everything
When the sun is setting low
they whisper we must go
when the boat sails away please let it be that way .

It will come without a warning
in the heat of an afternoon
when the word comes down the river
that a boat is coming soon
it takes your breath in a moment
I wonder who you'll be
close your eyes and pray
close your eyes and pray .

Mary takes your hand
and John strikes up the band
the brothers laugh and sing
you remember everything
when the sun is getting low
and they whisper we must go
the boat sails away let it be that way
the boat sails away let it be that way
Track Name: some people I know
some people I know
they say there's life on Mars
others i know look up and only see stars
some people i know
can barely tie there shoes
others I know ,they know exactly what to do
they always know just what to do
some people i know

some people I know
they give there lives to God
while others I know ,say those people are lost
some people I know love to sing me the blues
some others i know
they let their light shine through
they let their light shine
they let their light shine through

love them or hate them
leave them or take them
but know this thing before you go

love them or hate them
leave them or take them
but know this thing because it's true
they're all people like you
so let your light shine
so let your light shine
let your light shine through
like people do
let your light shine ,let your light shine through
like people do
let your light shine ,let your light shine through
like people do
Track Name: a boy can dream can't he (a lullabye)
I lay beneath the bodies
I hold my breath
pretend that I am gone.
when the evil has past
I crawl down to the river.
and float with the other ones
but that was just a dream
that was just dream
and I've had that dream since I was young
go to sleep , here comes another one....another one
I'm floating in the nothing
I'm floating in the nothing
where has everybody gone
laying on the big white pillow
and I can hear the voices telling me ...
this is wrong
this is oh so wrong..this is oh so wrong
that was just a dream
that was just a dream
I've had that dream since I was young
I've had that dream since I was young
and here comes another one
so go to sleep
go to sleep
