Track Name: America Wake Up
Slowly, show me
Wasted, waiting
America, wake up
We’re forging our past to come back to us
Come back to us
Come back to us
Slowly, show me
Wasted, waiting
Where are you going to?
What have I done to get away from you?
America, wake up
We’re forging our past to come back to us.
Come back to us
Come back to us
I was only waiting on some sign
I was only waiting on life to intercede
And it leads me
Slowly, show me
Wasted, waiting
America, wake up
We’re forging our past to come back to us
Come back to us
Come back to us
I was only waiting on some sign
I was only waiting on life to intercede
Track Name: Young And Old
Well I was born long ago
I was young, but way too old
Playing games with sticks and stones
Yet it was words that broke my bones

Went away to the north of Spain
Sought redemption in a pouring rain
Found the strength to fill the cracks
A way forward, no looking back
New Orleans here I am
I am boy, and I am a man
New Orleans take me in
For I know I’m bound here again
Track Name: Wanted
You’re hard on yourself
But that doesn't make you faulted any less
In corners and cells
Ideas will hold you hostage in your head
And they’re callin’
You’re a wanted man
No trial no bail
They’ll throw you away and consummate your guilt
Perpetual hell
And there’s no escape from what you’re feeling now
And it’s callin’
You’re a wanted,
Wanted Man
And they’re calling you back
To that sound
And you can’t take it back
No you can’t
You’re hard on yourself
But that doesn’t make you faulted any less
In corners and cells
Ideas will hold you hostage in your head
And they’re calling you back
Track Name: Long And Longer
Lost in a daze
Waiting for
Any change
I’ve been waiting, waiting long and longer
I’ve been waiting
Holes on a page
Words untold
They won’t stay
I’ve been waiting
Waiting long and longer
I’ve been waiting
Leave me to my pain
Let the rain
Wash away
And so, I hope
For a better way
One where I can afford
To feel something more
Please don’t let me go
Please don’t let me go
Please don’t let me go
On unknown
Track Name: Sleepless
Lay down your arms, kid
It’s an open page
And I can pretend that I’m in
Still I can’t see no way
You say it will pass,
Simmer down, relax
Let's just be

And how,
How long til I fall
In love, but not undone?

Spring now looms ahead
Like an ocean wave
The storm clouds descend on my head
And I can’t get no sleep
It’s raining hard
But I know it’s all in my mind

Fear now gives way
To an all out rage
It’s shattered glass,
I’m thrashin’ around now
But I can’t get no release
All the cold is taking it’s toll on me
Could I be wrong?
How could I be?

And how,
How long til I fall
In love but not undone?
Track Name: Carol
Yesterday I got a ticket
Parked in my own driveway
The ticket read sir,
You don’t deserve all the treats
And the treasures
You’ve had in your day
So I dug them up
And wrapped them around my eyes
It turns out the gold
That we were all told to find
is actually family
That we left behind
Carol, Carol, Carol!
Won’t you be fine
Carol, Carol, Carol, Carol
Cancer can’t kill the divine
Struggling with the day no more
Struggling with the day no more
Struggling with the day no more
Struggling with the day no more
Struggling with the day no more
Struggling with the day no more
Struggling with the day no more
Struggling with the day no more
Yesterday I got a ticket, I parked in my own driveway
Track Name: Rainy Night At The Riverview
Thought I saw you today
Your hair always glimmered
And how you wore a smiling face
Though the lights had got dimmer
Some nights I wake to questions
Was it more than I could take
To walk away?
So I wander back to your embrace
Your world wreathed in color
And all those words I couldn't say
Now collapsing and smothered
Some nights I wake to questions
Was it more than I could take
To walk away?
Cuz you’re the raft I’m floating on
But as the tide rolls forth I see the sun
Why should I atone
For the wave I broke from?
Thought I saw you today
A mirage in that summer
Track Name: Come Back Home
Come back home
Find your own
Come back soon
Come back do
You never call me anymore
And after all these years I hardly know you
It doesn’t do me any good
To think on all those times I held you close
Carried you home,
Made sure you felt
Safe and warm

Light the way
Get here safe
Light a flame
Light won’t fade
And if I tried to talk it out
Would you acknowledge me or walk away
If I hadn’t been so cross
Would you think better on this broken home
With a white picket fence
Warm summer air
That gave you all
Come back home
Call me son
Come this way
Come to stay
Track Name: Lilac Girl
And though words are weak to explain
Here’s this song that I thought I should play
I’ve been waiting my whole life
To see her face
Love was fire that night on the escape
Oh my, oh me, lilac girl
You put color to the light in my world
Sometimes I wonder
How she feels when she’s alone
And I want to be there wherever her life goes
At every broken road
I’ll be here to carry you home
How happy I’ll always be
To know that after all
She chose me
Oh my, oh me, lilac girl
You put color to the light in my world
Track Name: Fading Away
I’m fading away
I’m fading away
I’m fading away from a place
I must leave
I’m fading away
So it seems
Some days are the same
Others pass, as a dream
The faces and names are erased, suddenly
I look for the glow of a sun
Shining down
Its light summer rays shift my gaze
Homeward bound
Reflections of a world that has blown over
A wind yet fills the sails on my mast
And so I stand here feeling that much older
Four years I’ve spent assembling this ships cast
The years they pass
The years they pass
Love will hold you through a sleepless night
Love will sail for open seas
Love will fly unchained across the plains
One love stays, another leaves
Slowly, show me
Slowly, show me
Slowly, show me
Slowly, show me
