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 © 2016 Jess T Clinton

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. © 2017 Mackenzie Shivers

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... © 2017 Mackenzie Shivers

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 © 2017 Jess T Clinton

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 © 2017 Jess T Clinton, Sarah E Haines

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

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 © 2017 Jess T Clinton

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 © 2017 Mackenzie Shivers

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 © 2017 Sarah E Haines

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 © 2017 Jess T Clinton
