Track Name: Mojave Rain
Wake up babe, it's early in the morning
Sweet dark early morning, let your troubled dreams decay
Greet those red roads, lonely as the children
Lonely as the children that while living lost their way

Lights on, out to the truck with engine running
Stone pines gleaming alabaster
Rise on, our Mojave rain's a woman
Dancing while she's drumming on you, take me far away

Bound like locks so tightly in a tether
Pressed into the leather of a sea-green Chevrolet
Watch those state lines creep on through the pavement
Hotter than a basement on a Tucson summer day

Lights on - out to the truck with engine running
Stone pines gleaming alabaster
Rise on - our Mojave rain's a woman
Dancing while she's drumming on you - take me far away

As long as there is wind to pull my hair back from my face, I can see home
As long as there is wind to pull my hair back from my face, I can see home
As long as there is wind to pull my hair back from my face, I can see home
Anyplace at all

Where's my man? It's early in the mornin'
Desert rain's still pouring, through the silt and sand she drains
Found you, bare-chested - wading in the river
Too wound-up to shiver - as I came to you, you begged

As long as there is wind to pull my hair back from my face, I can see home
As long as there is wind to pull my hair back from my face, I can see home
As long as there is wind to pull my hair back from my face, I can see home
Anyplace at all

Track Name: Take Me to the Water
Oh when I die I’ll be so lonely
So take my body to the fishes in the sea
And they will be my company
And I can swim, I can swim, I won’t need to breathe.

Oh in life I am so tired
Of people telling me how to be
I’ll take my troubles to the water
I can swim, I can swim, I will finally be free.

Take me to the water, take me to the water
Take me to the water, it will be alright
Take me to the water, take me to the water
Take me to the water, it’s how we can survive.

When I was born I was so anxious
For somebody to love me the most
My mama took me to the water
I couldn’t swim, I couldn’t swim so she held me close.

Take me to the water, take me to the water
Take me to the water, it will be alright
Take me to the water, take me to the water
Take me to the water, it’s how we can survive.

Oh on land you can’t float, on land you can’t float
On land you can’t float, float on by

Oh on water we’ll float, on water we’ll float
on water we’ll float, float on by

Yeah take me to the water, take me to the water
Take me to the water, it will be alright
Take me to the water, take me to the water
Take me to the water, ooooooh
Yeah take me to the water, take me to the water
Take me to the water, it’ll be alright

Take me to the water, take me to the water
Take me to the water, it’s how we will survive.

Track Name: Snow
It’s brighter here than I remember, baby
You used to shield me from the sun
Your tall, handsome figure looming
It’s gloomy and lonesome here without you.

It’s warmer here than I wanted, baby
You know I’m better in the snow

Winter makes me hard, keeps me strong
Build a better life away from it all
Past the city beams, city screams
Where we lost it all.

Swing me low across the pond, it’s frozen now
Close your eyes, it’s like we’re flying
Above the trees
I’m on my knees begging
I’m lonely here without you

Winter makes me hard, keeps me strong
Build a better life away from it all
Past the city beams, city screams
Where we lost it all.

Winter makes me hard, keeps me strong
Build a better life away from it all
Past the city beams, city screams
Where we lost it all.

It’s colder here than I remember, baby...

Track Name: Capsized
Wind through the door and over the Earth
Shrunk like a bloom that’s given its worth
Cold to the glow of brotherly words
Wild roses grow on funeral herbs

And even though there are ways to go that we could say were wise
I’d rather with you float if capsized

Stung with the truths of being all grown
Your empty chair is given a loan
God bless the child who’s feeling it too
Life’s deepest well – if only I knew

And even though there are ways to go that we could say were wise
I’d rather with you float if capsized

And even though there are ways to go that we could say were wise
I’d rather with you float if capsized

Track Name: Devil's Sound
Lightening burns up the sky
Who dares to pass
Who dares to cry
Embers brighter than gold
Burn at the heels
Of those who behold

Does the grace of the Devil sound make you shiver in your grave?
Like a train full of thunder bound down the road to Hell we pave

Sinners deeper than night
Break at the bones
‘Fore bodies can die
Cowards grayer than coal
Smolder in sorrow
In miscreant folds

Does the grace of the Devil sound make you shiver in your grave?
Like a train full of thunder bound down the road to Hell we pave
Like a train full of thunder bound

Spirits swaying like chimes
Withered as fruit dead on the vine
Rulers with fortune in tears
Those who breed strife
And consume only fear
Lover, I'll meet you there
Land of the lost
Who couldn't beware

Does the grace of the Devil sound make you shiver in your grave?
Like a train full of thunder bound down the road to Hell we pave
Does the grace of the Devil sound make you shiver in your grave?
Like a train full of thunder bound

Track Name: Spring Fever
Sunshine’s creeping right on through
New blooms doing their best for you
Sky is open and it tastes like dew
and the world and the world is new

Springtime’s rolling in again
No use thinking on what might have been
Forgive old Winter of all his sins
and we’ll find and we’ll find what’s true

Spring fever’s getting the best of me
walk through groves of old cherry trees
Ask me what sort of thing we’re gonna be
We’ll just wait and see

Hey blue eyes
Some day soon you’ll be coming to my side
One day we’ll have nothing to hide
we can go anywhere at all
Take your time
Can’t force a thing when you know that it’s right
Love’s got a way of just falling in line and
Together we can fly

Trees reaching high with the sweetest green
But baby you’re the sweetest thing I’ve ever seen
Spring haze has got me living in a dream
So come stay ooh come stay with me

Can’t say I love you cause I don’t know how
But you’re the only one that I can think of now
Might have a chance if you can hang around
oh come be with me

Gone are days of winter
We let them pass us by
And the world is gonna change
Whether or not we try

...together we could fly, yeah together we could fly
Track Name: The Word
Rolling through the border we were wasted
Road that cuts the valley bleeds away before our eyes
Holed-up in the belly of the desert
By the power and the strength of our lives

Forged down in the fires of California
Buried by the ghosts we said we’d buried in the war
Souls can grow much older than the oak trees
By the power and the strength of our lore

And I said right about now - a change gone come
Oh I said right about now - a change gone come
So say the souls of everyone…

Gliding through the ocean on a slipstream
Daylight breaks like effervescent wine way up above
Water takes the shape of every vessel
By the power and the strength of our love

Oh I said right about now - a change gone come …
So say the souls of everyone

Track Name: Below the Meadow
I won’t sleep through ‘till morning
But I won’t wake you when I go
I’ll fly faster than a sparrow
I’ll leave peaceful as a dove

I will breathe in the starlight
I will listen for my bones
They are resting deep below the meadow
But they used to stand up straight and tall

Do not cry for me, brother
Do not cry for me, son
I am flying faster than a sparrow
I am leaving peaceful as a dove

Always thought that I’d be buried
in a New York City grave
But when I died I needed fresh air
So I travelled to the countryside

Do not look for me in winter
Do not search for me in June
I’ll be running free above the meadow
I’ll be dancing to my own sweet tune

Track Name: How Sweetly
How
How sweetly you rise
to meet me
My Morning Sun
Made it through the cold and lonesome night
and back into the light
streamin through the window so bright
Don’t need a hand to hold
in the dark and in the cold
just need the soft kiss
of daybreak on my skin
How
How how sweetly you rise
to meet me
It’s the longest nights
that set my soul a wanderin
through the mountains and the pine
And one day she’ll find a place to rest
and leave my body behind

Track Name: Midnight Road to Nowhere
Lay me down to sleep, I can’t believe
Midnight road to nowhere snakes right under my feet
And I can’t believe

Dive with eyes closed tight, awake in a dream
Waves on rocks and reefs, a gate to the sea

I think a simple life might suit me better
I’d like a simple life fine
I’d spend my lifetime under wind and weather just fine

Break lights turn to daylight, and here I lie
Alone on the beach, I followed the creek
Hearts as good as gold I’m trying to find
But I can’t believe

I think a simple life might suit me better
I’d like a simple life fine
I’d spend my lifetime under wind and weather just fine

I think a simple life might suit me better
I’d like a simple life fine
I’d spend my lifetime under wind and weather just fine
