B i o g r a p h y
 (by Matt Hanks)

Taking inspiration from soul greats, Stevie Wonder and Bill Withers, and folk legends, John Prine and Dave Van Ronk, Amos Lee directs his music with a spirit and presence rooted in American tradition. Amos delivers a unique brand of folk-soul music that aims to unite, uplift, and inspire. The “folk” side is reflected in his nimble acoustic guitar playing and the intimacy of his live performances. The “soul” strain comes through in the engaging song-poetry of his lyrics and in what the Philadelphia Inquirer described as his “easygoing voice” and “raw, unedited emotion.” Amos Lee, his eponymous Blue Note debut, is set for release in March 2005. The eleven tracks, all composed by Amos, were produced by Lee Alexander and recorded by Danny Kopelson in July 2004 during two weeks of sessions at The Magic Shop in New York City. Among the album's choice cuts are the atmospheric opener “Keep it Loose, Keep it Tight” and “Arms of a Woman,” a classic triplet ballad that could have been covered in an earlier era of soul. Enhanced by a delicate string arrangement, “Soul Suckers” warns a young performer of the hazards of the music business. “Bottom of the Barrel” echoes classic John Prine in its wry humor, resilient spirit, and timeless melody. THE STORY SO FAR The 27-year-old former schoolteacher grew up going between Philadelphia, PA, and a suburb, Cherry Hill, NJ. “I've been fortunate to have had the opportunity to see a few sides of life in this country.” Amos entered the University of South Carolina in 1995, where he began to play acoustic guitar and write songs. “I met my kind of people in there: down-to-earth, sincere folks who didn't belong to any club. They were all musicians, and they taught me how to treat my music with sincerity and integrity.”

After graduating college with a degree in English, Amos returned to Philadelphia where he taught elementary school. His desire to pursue music as a career forced him to make the difficult decision to leave teaching. To earn a living he waited tables, tended bar, and continued writing songs. “I started playing open mikes and getting some feedback. I started feeling a little more confidence.” A self-released EP with five of his original songs made Amos “one of the area's most-talked-about emerging talents” according to the Philadelphia Inquirer, and was followed by a second, seven-song disc (both sold out on their initial pressings). “The time between when I stopped teaching and when I got signed was a beautiful, fun time.” Having had the honor of opening shows for such legends as Bob Dylan, BB King, and Mose Allison, Grammy winning Norah Jones invited Amos to open her 2004 European tour. Equipped with only his voice and guitar, Amos found himself facing 3,000-5,000 listeners a night-and up to three times that number when he joined Ms. Norah's 56 date US tour that same year. 2005 finds Amos about to embark on an eight week major city run with "The Bob Dylan Show" featuring Bob Dylan and Merle Haggard. The remainder of the year will be spent performing in Europe, Japan and finishing out 2005 with a fall tour of the US. And yet, night after night, he pulled it off. In their concert review the Los Angeles Times referred to Amos as a “writer and singer with enough personality to charm a crowd impatient for Jones to take the stage.” The Albany Times-Union praised Amos's “charming and soulful solo set”; the Seattle Post-Intelligencer heard him blend “a folksy, flannel-and-denim sound with sultry R&B.” “My favorite time in music is probably 1970-75. Still Bill by Bill Withers, Harvest by Neil Young, John Prine's first album, James Taylor's One Man Dog—I hope I can bring the same sort of spirit I hear on those records.”

Amos Lee

Keep it loose, Keep it tight

Well I walked over the bridge
Into the city where I live and I saw my old landlord
Well we both said hello
There was no where else to go
Cause his rent I couldn't afford

Well relationships change
Though I think it's kind of strange how money makes a man grow
Ah, some people they claim if you get enough fame
You live over the rainbow
Over the rainbow
But the people on the street,
Out on buses or on feet
We all got the same blood flow

Oh in society every dollar got a deed
We all need a place that we can go and feel over the rainbow

Some times we forget what we got
And who we are and who we are not
I think we got a chance to make it right
Keep it loose
Keep it tight
Keep it tight

I'm in love with a girl who's in love with the world
Though I can't help but follow
Though I know someday she is bound to go away and stay over the rainbow
Got to learn how to let her go
Over the rainbow

But sometimes we forget who we got
Who they are and who they are not

There is so much more in love than black and white
Keep it loose child
You gotta keep tight
Keep it loose child
Keep it tight
Keep it tight
Keep it tight

Seen It All Before

Go ahead baby
Run away again
I'm growing tired of chasing you

I know you only have time to love me
When you got nothing better to do
Who's bold enough to believe
In either love or war

Both just leave you busted, broken down
And wanting more

And baby I've seen it all before
You know that I've seen it all before
You know that I've seen it all before
I ain't gonna be your fool anymore

I can hear my heart pounding
Oh but I just can't decide
Stuck between the depths of my fears
And the peaks of my pride

And baby I've seen it all before
You know that I've seen it all before
You know that I've seen it all before
I ain't gonna be your fool anymore

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I've seen your tricks
And your trade-offs
I've seen your evil ways
I've seen everything your twisted smile conveys

Yeah baby I seen it all before
(Be your fool babe)
I've seen it all before
I ain't gonna be your fool babe
I ain't gonna be your fool babe
I ain't gonna be your fool babe
I ain't gonna be your fool baby anymore

Arms of a Woman

I am at ease in the arms of a woman
Although now most of my days are spent alone
A thousand miles from the place I was born
But when she wakes me she takes me back home

Now most days I spend like a child
Who's afraid of ghosts in the night
I know there ain't nothing out there
I'm still afraid to turn on the light

I am at ease in the arms of a woman
Although now most of my days are spent alone
A thousand miles from the place I was born
But when she wakes me she takes me back home

A thousand miles from the place I was born
But when she wakes me she takes me back home

I am at ease in the arms of a woman
Although now most of my days are spent alone
A thousand miles from the place I was born
When she wakes me she takes me
Yeah, when she wake me she takes me
Yeah, when she wake me she takes me back home

When she wake me she takes me back home

Give It Up

I've been waiting a long time
I was just hoping I might find
Ah, the right kind of lover for me

Well you know I've been lonesome
God knows we all been lonesome
Some people think being lonesome really means being free

But, I would give it all up for you
Yes I would give it all up for you
Yes I would give it up
Settle down
Stop looking around
I finally found something true

We live in a world full of confusion
A culture based in illusion
Ah, some people think it's amusing
But its really just fantasy

I would give it up for you
Yes I would give t all up for you
Yes I would give it up
Settle down
Stop looking around
I finally found
Ah, yeah

I would give it all
I would give it all up for you now baby
I would give it all
I would give it all
It would give it all up for you now baby

Dreamin'

My soul is as open as the sky
Often time it's just as blue
People tell me to keep on dreaming
That's just what I'm gonna do

Now everybody want to treat me like a house fly
Turn me around and tell me to shoo
They want to tell me to keep on dreaming
That's just what I'm gonna do

Every moral has a story
Every hand needs a glove
Sometime it's for the glory
Ah, but mostly, it's for the love
It's the love
It's the love
It's the love that pulls me through
So when they tell me to keep on dreaming
That's just what I'm gonna do

That's just what I'm gonna do

Soul Suckers

Did you believe them
When they told you they discovered you
And that everything is free as long as you do what they tell you to
You think it's true
But nothing could be further from the truth, my love
Did you even listen
When they told you to change your name
And that nobody wants honesty when looking at a perfect frame
Play the game
But nothing could be further from the truth, my love
And nothing is more powerful than beauty in a wicked world
Play it girl
Play it girl
Play it girl
Does it make you feel good
When they tell you what you want to hear
And after they suck all your soul
Well that's when they'll disappear
Disappear, disappear forever
Like a prince in your little fairy tale
And you will find one day when they put your soul on sale
Nothing could be further the truth, my love
And nothing is more powerful than beauty in a wicked world

Colors

Yesterday I got lost in the circus
Felling like such a mess
Now I'm down I'm just hanging on the corner
I can't help but reminisce
When you're gone all the colors fade
When you're gone no New Year's Day parade
You're gone
Colors seem to fade

Your mama called she said that you're downstairs crying
Feeling like such a mess
Yeah I hear you you're in the background balling
What happened to your sweet summertime dress

I know we all, we all got our faults
We get locked in our vaults and we stay
But when you're gone all the colors fade

When you're gone no New Year's Day parade
You're gone
Colors seem to fade
Colors seem to fade
Yeah

Bottom of the Barrel

I keep on laughing to keep from crying
I keep on dreaming to keep from dying
I keep on trying
Ain't gonna stop
Get right down to the bottom of the barrel
And then you float back on top

We all know someone who's always hurtin'
The sun is shining they draw the curtain
One thing for certain
The pain ain't gonna stop

You get right down to the bottom of the barrel
And then you float back on top

You know the grass is always s greener in someone else's yard
And the world is so much meaner when your heart is hard

I go out walking in any season
It could be rainin' it could be freezin'
I don't need no reason
It's just so pleasing I can't stop

You get right down to the bottom of the barrel
And then you float back on top
You get right down to the bottom of the barrel
And then you float back on top

Black River

Oh, Black River
Gonna take my cares a way
Whoa, Black River
Gonna take my cares a way
Gonna take my cares gonna carry my cares
Gonna take my cares away
Gonna take a my cares gonna carry my cares
Gonna take a my cares away

Oh, dear savior
Gonna take my cares away
Whoa, dear savior
Gonna take my cares a way
Gonna take my cares gonna carry my cares
Gonna take my cares away
Gonna take my cares gonna carry my cares
Gonna take my cares away

Oh, sweet whiskey, lord
Gonna take my cares away
Whoa sweet whiskey lord
Your gone gonna take my cares a way
Gonna take my cares gonna carry my cares
Gonna take my cares away
Gonna take my cares gonna carry my cares
Gonna take my cares away

Your gonna take my bottle, my bible, my mess
Your gonna take all of my empty and my loneliness
Gonna take all of that sadness inside of me
Gonna take it all and set me free

Oh, Black River
Gonna take my cares a way

Love in the Lies

I ain't no wide eyed rebel
Oh, but I ain't no preacher's son
And now I see the trouble and all the loving that I've done
And the world ain't no harder than it's ever been
Looking for love in the lies of a lonely friend

So much superstition and so much worry in my heart
I need a new religion it's time to make a brand new start
And the world ain't no easier than it's ever been
Looking for love in the lies of a lonely friend

Remember when we were in California
We were so much happier then
Now we're back in New York City
Looking for love in the lies of a lonely friend

And now the clocks are running
And no one knows where time goes
You know the moon is stunning
It's only shadows that she shows
And the world ain't no harder than it's every been
Looking got for love in the lies of a lonely friend

I ain't no wide eyed rebel
But I ain't no preacher's son

All My Friends

All my friends
They all live in pain
Longing for the warmth of childhood to bring them home again
All my friends
They got broken hearts
And if the world's a stage we're searching for our parts

We'll face the winds that break the strongest of trees
Beckon for the sweet soft summer breeze

All my friends
They got broken wings
Never will you hear them asking why the caged bird sings
All my friends
They know how to live
Oh, so much sorrow and so much love to give

We'll face the winds that break the strongest of trees
Beckon for the sweet soft summer breeze


Now we all know that the storm is coming
Every body wants to know which way to go
I see the crowds a running
The wind's gonna blow

All my friends are dear to me
Oh when the storm comes they're as close as family
All my friends are the ones I choose
Oh, if I hear them knockin'
You know I can't refuse

We'll face the winds that break the strongest of trees
Beckon for the sweet soft summer breeze

All my friends

Supply and Demand

Shout out Loud

A thousand empty window
And only half the lights are out
I wonder what these people's lives
What they might be all about

Do they got a lover
And could they have a family
Or could it be they're just as lonesome
As you and me

I wanna shout out
Shout out loud
Why don't you all
Just come on out
And we can
Tear it all down, yeah

White lights burning
Down an empty avenue
I wonder if their driver
Found someone he can go on home to

I wanna shout out
Shout out loud
Why don't you all
Just come on out
And we can
Tear it all down, yeah

Cause everybody's got a part in the game
And everybody's got a cross they can claim
And everybody's got somebody to blame
But we all must find our own way, yeah yeah

I wanna shout out
Shout out loud
I wanna shout out
Shout out loud
I wanns shout out
Shout out loud

Shout out loud, yeah, yeah
Shout out loud, yeah, yeah

Shout out loud
Shout out loud
Shout out loud

Sympathize

It ain't no jive
I was burnin' alive
Whenever you walked in the room
It happened so quickly
I was feelin' so sickly
Like a lover who lost his muse

The sharks in the tank
Oh the man in the bank
He wants my money to loan
I can't understand
What the hell is his plan
I ain't even got a home
Ain't got a home

The girl on the street
With holes in her feet
Looks through the eyes of a clown
She don't look mad
She's feelin' kinda sad
So I just walk around

I reassess
She's down on her luck
She's reading a book of lies
I don't know when I'll be comin' home, baby
But I sure can sympathize
Can sympathize
Can sympathize

Angels spread their wings
On all the dirty things
You do

She drops to the floor
Her head's by the door
Her bible is by her side
Heaven is callin'
The new world is fallin'
And she ain't got a single person left
To confide
No one to confide
No one to confide
Oh ton confide

I sympathize
Can sympathize

Freedom

I don't want to be a martyr in this war
Don't want to hear the same excuses anymore
That everything's a threat
And it's only gonna get worse if we let it

Don't want to blame the rich for what they got
Or point a finger at the poor for what they have not
To the politician and a priest
We're in the belly of the beast
Because we fed it

Freedom is seldom found
By beatin' someone to the ground
Tellin' them how everything is gonna be now, yeah

Now if the tables were turned, tell me how you would feel
Somebody busted up into your house telling you to stay still
While the leaders will deny defeat
The innocent lay testifyin', dyin' in the street

Freedom is seldom found
By beatin' someone to the ground
Tellin' them how everything is gonna be

Freedom is seldom found
By beatin' someone to the ground
Tellin' them how everything is gonna be now

Careless

You speak of love
But you ain't no lover
You were a friend
But more like a brother

As the miles passed beneath me
The sounds made so sweetly came to an end
And no man can deny her
But now you're a liar
And you've no room left to defend

When I left
I should have known better
Of the kind of man that you are
You'd have to get her

And I know you got a lot of pain
That's born inside you
But instead of growing stronger
You let it divide you, oh

How could you be so careless
How could you be so careless

And the waves that are crashing
True lies and passion
Washing on your shore
Yes a line has been crossed
A true love's been lost
That I can't get back anymore

And I'm sure
That we both still love her
It's a shame we both lost her
And in turn lost each other

But a trust has been broken
And words have been spoken
But it can't mend
And no man can deny her
As you laid beside her
I hope it felt good my friend

How could you be so careless
How could you be so careless
How could you be so careless
With her heart

Skipping Stone

I don't know if I can do this alone
Oh after all our sweet love has flown
I've been runnin'
I've been skipping like a stone
And I don't know if I
I can do this alone

When I met her she was standing by a door
I ain't never seen a light like that before
Now she's left me for something more sure
And I don't know if I
I can do this anymore

'Cause lovers will come
Lovers will go
And it's a rare seed
From which true love might grow
And if you see her, won't you please say hello
'Cause I don't know if I can do this alone

Supply and demand

Somethin' gotta give with the way i'm livin'
Seems I'm gettin' down everyday
The more I strive, the less I'm alive
And seems i'm gettin' further away

Oh well all my superstitions
And my crazy suspicions
Of the people that I care about
I've been doin' more screamin'
Than I've been doin' dreamin'
And I think it's time I figure it out

Baby i need a plan
Oh, to understand
That life ain't only supply and demand

I've been goin' joggin' in the park after dark
Draggin' 'round with me my ball and chain
Took southern skies to make me realize
That I'm causin' myself this pain

Well the woman that I'm lovin'
Yeah I'm pushin' and shovin'
Getting further on by the day
And I can't understand
How the heart of this man
Ever let it end up this way

Baby I need a plan
Oh to understand
That life ain't only supply and demand

When the road gets dark and lonesome dear
You can find me here
But honey you don't know where I am
You need a friend, yeah

Life ain't easy
In fact I know it's sleazy
When you're the big man in town
Shakin' religions
And makin' decisions
You never get to slow on down

Well your wife and your baby
You tell them yeah well maybe
“I'll meet y'all at a weekend resort”
But your eyes on the prize
And you can't realize
That your little girl's life's so short

Brother you need a plan
Oh to understand
That life ain't only supply and demand

Yeah sister you need a plan
Oh to understand
That life ain't only supply and demand

Hey, you better figure it out now
You know you ain't comin' back down, yeah
You better figure it out now
You know you ain't comin' back down

Sweet Pea

Sweet pea, apple of my eye
Don't know when and I don't know why
You're the only reason
I keep on coming home

Sweet pea, what's all this about
Don't get your way
All you do is fuss and pout
You're the only reason
I keep on coming home

I'm like the rock of gibraltar
I always seem to falter
And the words just get in the way
Oh I know I'm gonna crumble
I'm tryin' to stay humble
But I never think before I say

Sweet pea, keeper of my soul
I know sometimes I'm out of control
You're the only reason I keep on comin'
You're the only reason I keep on comin' yeah
You're the only reason I keep on comin' home

Night train

I've been workin' on a night train
Drinkin' coffee, takin' cocaine
I'm out here on my night train
Tryin' to get her safely home

Well in a little country station
Somewhere out in the midwest
I see the people out there waiting
Heart beating in my chest

And I'm thinking about a woman
Who I put no one above
I'm not looking to replace her
Just need someone to love

While I'm out here on my night train
Drinkin' coffee, takin' cocaine
I'm out here on my night train
Tryin' to get her safely home

And I'm living in the city
Where the noise it never stops
Hammers pounding on the pavement
Whistles from traffic cops

Nobody looks you in the eye here
Walkin' 'round with clenched fists
I've been searchin' for a simple place
Don't know if it exists

Sunrise out there callin' my name
I can see her movin'
I can see her movin'

Well at a certain time of night now
I become one with the wind
Where there isn't a beginning
And there is no end

Oh and everything is flowing
Everything is on time
And I know that we're all going
To the end of the line

And I'm out here on my night train
Drinkin' coffee takin' cocaine
I'm out here on my night train
Tryin' to get her safely home

Well I'm out here on my night train
Drinkin' coffee, takin' cocaine
I'm out here on my night train
Tryin' to get her safely home
Tryin' to get her safely home
Tryin' to get her safely home

Souther Girl

Farewell my sweet
Well the time now has come
And the road has begun
To move beneath my feet

A good thing's come to an end
Well I hope through the pain
And the heartache and strain
That we can still remain friends

Somethin' about a southern girl
Make me feel right
In the Mississippi morning
She's an angel in flight
In a blink of an eye
She'll be out of your sight
Somethin' about a southern girl

Your soft melody
Well I swear that I heard
From a lost mockingbird
Stuck up in a tree

You got a lot going on
Even though I'm not here
Please don't shed any tears
For me dear when i'm gone

Somethin' about a southern girl make me feel right
In the Mississippi morning
She's an angel in flight
In the blink of an eye
She'll be out of your sight
Somethin' about a southern

Girl I never meant to leave you lonely
It was only in your mind
Girl I never meant to leave you lonely
It was only a matter of time

Somethin' about a southern girl make me feel right
In the Mississippi morning
She's an angel in flight
In the blink of an eye
She'll be out of your sight
Somethin' about a southern
Somethin' about a southern girl

The wind

Saturday night and my head is spinning
I wonder whose heart I've been sinning for
A cold rain blows on my window
A soft scent gone from my pillow

One more step that I've been takin'
Yes and one more heart
I don't need no more breakin' of
The red lights how they all
Burnin' down the highway
I remember when the wind had blown my way

But the wind blew down my line
Yeah the wind blew down my line

The man on the street
Each day I'm passin'
A small bite to eat
Is all he's been askin' for
Cold stares is all he's been yielding
Oh and now I know that empty feeling

Yeah the wind blew down my line
Yeah the wind blew down my line
Yeah the wind blew down my line

Long line of pain

I'm coming from a long line of pain
My family's suffered greatly for my gain
I think a lot about
How my daddy died
So I would not live without

His heart lives in my song
Where the melody comes
And just as quickly
The melody is gone
I'm back alone
Far from home

Now my momma's on her own
I try to call her
And see her when I'm home
And after all that she's been through
All the doctors say
There ain't nothing we can do

And her heart lives in my song
Where the melody comes
And just as quickly
The melody is gone
And I'm back alone
Far from home

There's a bird outside my window
Takes his song where he goes
And he leaves it there
Like a dead man's rocking chair

And tonight I'm feelin' lost and
Headed down the highway
Out to Boston
I get the sense that I might lose it
But thank God tonight
For the light I got in music

'Cause my heart lives in this song
Where the melody comes
And just as quickly
The melody is gone
I'm back alone
Far from home

Last Days At the Lodge

Listen

Listen
Listen to them church bells ringing
Listen

Listen
You can hear them hounds calling off in the distance
If you listen
You can hear the engines stalling
You can hear the angels falling

And travel
You find men and women all have trouble
If you travel
You will that the poor are victims of the gun or gavel
If you travel

But be careful now
Be careful of all them folks out there who surround you
Be careful
Some of them really only want to ground you
They only want control
Tear you down to that hole
So be careful, yeah

Now listen
Listen to them church bells ringing
Listen

Listen
You can hear them hounds calling off in the distance
If you listen
You can hear the engines stalling
You can hear the angels falling
You can hear the engines stalling
And oh oh the angels falling
Alright

Won't Let Me Go

Been some time
Since the first night I saw you
Had some good
Had some bad time since then
And through all of these moments that I've gotten to know you
I realized that I want to be a little bit more than your friend

And I wanna know
If you want to get together
Stay for a while
We can talk about it all
I wanna know
‘Cause this feeling won't let me go

Stood around
While you dated that old fool Marcus
Whole time knew he wasn't no damn good for you, well.
Guess it's true sometimes we can all be a little heartless
But tonight, all I wanna do is make sweet love to you.

And I wanna know
If you want to get together
Stay for a while
We can talk about it all
I wanna know
‘Cause this feeling won't let me go

Well, all those wasted nights you spend
Well, just crying all those tears
Well, I want you to know girl
I'm around
Yeah I'm here alright
Alright

I wanna know
If you want to get together
Stay for a while
We can talk about it all
I wanna know
'Cause this feeling won't let me go

I wanna know (I wanna know, I wanna know, I wanna know)
I wanna know
I wanna know (I wanna know, I wanna know, I wanna know)
I wanna know, baby

All of these feelings
No it won't
No it won't let me go
No it won't baby
It won't let me go

Baby I Want You

Baby I want you
Baby I want you
Baby, I do
Darling I love you
Darling I love you
Know that it's true

Don't leave me here out on my own
Don't you know how I hate to be alone
I just want to be apart of your home

Baby I want you
Baby I want you
Baby, I do
Darling I love you
Darling I love you
Know that it's true

Don't leave me here out in the cold
Don't you know that it's your hand I wanna hold
As these days fly past and unfold
Hey

Baby I want you
Baby I want you
Baby, I do
Darling I love you
Darling I love you
Know that it's true

Truth

Well my woman, she showed up
With your number on her hand
Well I thought that I might call you up
So we could deal with this man to man

You better tell me the truth son

Now they got me here at the ballroom
Walking slow and acting strong
Well I said my friend I'll give you one last chance
To admit that you done me wrong

You better tell me the truth son, yeah
You better tell me the truth son

Now they got me here at the county
With his blood still on my face
Well the boys in blue they don't play no games
All the sheriff said to me was this

You better tell me the truth son, yeah
You better tell me the truth son, yeah

Now they got me here at the lockdown
For a crime I did commit
Well for my last call
I called the number on my girl's hand
To remind you not to forget

You should have told me the truth son, yeah
You should have told me the truth son
You should have told me the truth son, no
Make me beat it out of you
Make me beat it out of you

What's Been Going On By

And no one says a word to me
They're concerned with my jealousy
Well I guess that's how it's got to be
From now on

And time, it swallows everything
From the mighty to the meager thing
And it's as dark as it is comforting
To play along

Well what's been going on
What's been going on
What's been going on
Around here

There goes her old beat up car
Outside of our old favourite bar
She's proudly in there playing her guitar
With stars in her eyes

Those are some of my favourite memories
All of those carefree melodies
While I'm out of here on this raging sea
About to capsize

Well what's been going on
What's been going on
What's been going on
Around here

What's been going on
What's been going on
What's been going on
Around here

And no one says a word to me
They're concerned with my jealousy
I guess that's how it's got to be
From now on

It Started To Rain

Sally Jane
How did it end up this way
With our boxes packed
And not one word to say
The children play
As your car pulled away
I didn't realize ‘til then
It was really goodbye
With your wheels on the gravel
I felt my heart strings unravel
As it started to rain
It started to rain
It started to rain
Forty days
It started to rain
The neighbours came
And they bought what remained
Of the life we built
With loving, with laughter
Then my heart started sinking
‘Cause I couldn't help thinking
Their fate would be the same
It started to rain
It started to rain
Forty days
It started to rain
It started to rain

Jails And Bombs

The one I love is lost without the least bit of explanation
Just goes to show the futility of self-preservation
Now all I seem to see is all this war, and going amongst our nations
What good will it do

Now everybody wants to know the secrets to our salvation
Forever reading on and on, from Genesis to Revelation

Never stopping for a second to examine situations
After all that we've been through

And love it only ends
When there's nothing left to defend
Will we ever see, yeah, yeah
The common bond of humanity
Go on

Get a landscape of famine and also of frustration
And children walking round without the proper means to education
And still up there on Capitol Hill they're passing all this legislation
For jails and bombs

Still we live behind these hollow walls of lies and segregation
People walking round without the proper means to medication
And still up there on Capitol Hill they're passing all this legislation
For jails and bombs

Anybody out there can hear my prayer
Anybody out there can hear my prayer
Anybody out there can hear my prayer
Anybody out there can hear my prayer
Anybody out there can hear my prayer

Kid

Been kicked around so long
You're starting to get used to how it feels
The taste of blood that's in your mouth
There's still somehow it always heals
Don't know how you keep on getting up
From all those ghostly blows
And all that pain that lingers
Deep down in the darkness where it grows

I know how hard it is
To keep your head up kid
To keep your head up
Kid

And there you sit on high
All tucked away and locked up in the clouds
Waiting for someone to finally
Come along and take you out
Into this bitter world
That also often treated you so cruel
When they turn away
You know that they will say that you're a fool

I know how hard it is
To keep your head up kid
I know how hard it is
To keep your head up kid

And so patiently
You waited for a love to come along
Take you out into this bitter world
So often done you wrong
There you sit alone
And there you shed a solitary tear
Listening to a song
You think that no one else would ever hear

I know how hard it is
To keep your head up kid
I know hard it is
To keep your head up
Keep your head up
Keep your head up
Keep your head up
Keep your head up

Ease Back

Hello
It's good to see you coming back again
It's been a long time
Since I sat with you, my friend

I'll lend an ear
It's not that so severe
Time has killed the pain
And dried up every tear

And now
I'm thinking bout what went, down
All the heartache
I laughed away
Just like a clown

And now
Sit around talking
Drink some wine
I'm really glad you stopped in
Spend some time
You sit around talking
Thinking bout the past
It's funny how it lingers
But nothings meant to last

And my Ma
She'd like to say hello
But she's a little scared
That I can't let it go
So let on, ease back, brother
And let it slip away
I'm tired of hanging onto
The pains of yesterday

Once again
The money is so thick
It makes your heart go numb
It makes your mind get sick

So come on by
Stay and talk about it
Drink some wine
I'm really glad you stopped in, brother of mine
We'll sit around talking
Drink some wine
And maybe by the morning everything is fine
Everything is fine
Ease back, brother
Let this clear your mind

Come on by
And drink yourself a good time
Have some wine
And think about each other
Sister and I are fine
Yes, I've been alright now
Take it lightly
Step on out the front door
I'll see you in some time

Better Days

The darkness has always been
The world was born into a blanket of sin
When all the faith's been gone
Still we found a reason to carry on

Through the worry, worry, worry
We're caught in an endless maze
When the lights go out
All that I can think about
Is how, we've seen better days

Lover lately I've been thinking I might leave you
As you're surrounded by these fools who do deceive you
Yes our past is wretched true
But I'm still in love with you
That's why I am still refusing to give in to

All this worry, worry, worry
We're caught in an endless maze
But when the lights go out
All I can think about
Is how, we've seen better days

Where do we go from here
While we're all so consumed by fear
Well I'm trying not to be suspicious of those
I'm suspicious of
I'm trying to crack
Open this angry heart
And find a little love

Still I worry, worry, worry
We're caught in an endless maze
When the lights go out
All that I can think about
Is how we've seen better days

Oh when the lights go out
All I can dream about
Is how we've seen better days

Dignified Woman

A dignified woman
She came to me
She bought out by lovers
And their rogue jewellery

Haunted by nature
Worn by their furs
She knew my longing
Was no different from hers

And nothing else matters
Runaway from love
And look for a rainbow
There's never enough

A dignified woman
Lives with her pain
She bought me a ticket
For a runaway train

And I've been a-rambling
Living alone
A dignified woman
Is locked in her home

And nothing else matters
Runaway from love
And look for a rainbow
There's never enough
For a dignified woman

Mission Bell

El Camino

Well all my friends
Treated me so well
You know I'm headed out
To that mission bell

Gonna wash my soul
Gonna get it clean
Headed down the border road
Called the El Camino

Well I've been a prince
And you know I've been a post
By a barb wire fence
And a murder of crows

I believe in all I've loved
And all I've seen
Headed down the border road
Called the El Camino
Headed down the border road
Called the El Camino

Yeah my heart's grown sick
I've got a shepherds crook
As a walking stick
And I'm heading on

Yeah my heart's grown blue
And I've done wrong by you
I don't know what to do
And I'm moving on
Yeah I'm moving on

One and one is two
And two and two is four
I'm walking back and forth
On your cracked-tile kitchen floor

With the orange juice
And the sun that shines
It really breaks my heart
Leaving you behind,
It really breaks my heart
Leaving you behind

And all my ships have sailed away
The price of this politic
That there's plenty of time to pray
And plenty of time to waste away

Well to all my friends
That I've loved the most
You know I'm heading out to that other coast

Gonna wash my soul
Gonna get it clean
Headed down the border road
Called the El Camino,
Headed down the border road
Called the El Camino

Windows Are Rolled Down

Look up child
The world is born
Shoe's untied
And your soles are worn

Windows are rolled down
Sun is setting high
Windows are rolled down
I'm fixing to die

Corn rows have companion feel
This rocky road and this steering wheel
Who do you call to ease your pain
I hope for you to get through this rain

Windows are rolled down
Moon is hanging low
Windows are rolled down
Think it's time for me to go

Is it what you dreamed it'd be
Are you locked up in this fantasy
Oh this miles that have torn us apart
My new found faith and my broken heart

Windows are rolled down
Sun is rising high
Windows are rolled down
Feel that wind rushing by

Windows are rolled down

Violin

(feat. Sam Beam)

Lately I, I've been heading for a breakdown
Every time I leave my house
Well it feels just like a shake down
Between street sweepers and the pushers are the lawyers
Who may as well be butchers
Between the small timing hustlers who all
Seem to feed upon each other

Oh God why you been
Hanging out in that old violin
While I've been waiting for you
To pull me through

Lately I, every time I try to lie down
Well my mind just gets away
I can't even close my eyes now
Between the big fish ambition, and the lovers
Using words as ammunition
Between wood planks I've been pacing endless
Impossible dream that I've been chasing

Oh God why you been
Hanging out in that old violin
While I've been waiting for you
To pull me through

Oh God, oh God
Oh God why you been
Hanging out in that old violin
While I've been waiting for you
To pull me through

Flower

My heart is a flower
That blouses every hour
I believe in a power
Of love

Well in this lonesome meadow
Well it's soft as a pillow
Oh I pray that we'll go back
To Love

I'm gonna reach on up over that fear
I'm never alone won't you please be near
I know that darkness before the dawn
Tomorrow's coming and yesterday's gone

I'm gonna get my baby
Get up stream
Fall asleep in her arms
And drift away in a dream

Gonna go out walking in the morning light
Well I know that my tomorrow's gonna be alright
Gonna be alright

Well I never shall wither
Well of course I, I forgive her
Oh please Lord deliver me
To love

I'm gonna reach on up over that fear
I'm never alone won't you please be near
I know that darkness before the dawn
Tomorrow's coming and yesterday's gone

I'm gonna get my baby
Get up stream
Fall asleep in her arms
And drift away in a dream

Gonna go out walking in the morning light
Well I know that my tomorrow's gonna be alright
Gonna be alright
Gonna be alright
Gonna be alright

My heart is a flower
That blooms every hour
I believe in the power
I believe in the power
Of love, of love, of love

Stay With Me

(feat. Priscilla Ahn)

One by one we watched them fall
Like trees on the country side
Yeah you stayed right with me babe
The river was rolling tide

Oh you stay, stay with me
Oh you stay, stay with me

All through it with broken bones
Oh how you watched them heal
No you never turned away
You were never afraid to feel

Oh you stay, stay with me
Oh you stay, stay with me

Oh and when the morning comes
Just know darling
I had to be moving on

Oh and when the winter comes
Oh and you can't decide
For your rabbit to run
Or your rabbit to hide

Stay, stay with me
Please stay, stay with me
Will you stay, stay with me
Will you stay, stay with me
Will you stay

Out of the Cold

(feat. Pieta Brown)

It's hard to argue in a bulletproof vest
'Cause you can walk straight with a bull in your chest
Another man down with the flag defoe
Yeah it takes a lot of love and coming out of the cold

??? never to see him cry
Not the same can be said for his brand new bride
Bills pile up with no hand to hold
It takes a lot of love and coming out of the cold
It takes a lot of love and coming out of the cold

Looking at the pictures upon the sheft
Feel I'm in shadow of himself
Twenty two years till he feels so old
It takes a lot of love and coming out of the cold
It takes a lot of love and coming out of the cold
It takes a lot of love and coming out of the cold
It takes a lot of love and coming out of the cold

Jesus

(feat. James Gadson)

Oh, Jesus can you help me now
Oh, Jesus can you help me now
Oh, Jesus can you help me now
No, I never felt so alone

I remember when I was wild and free
Oh, so wild and free
Oh, so wild and free
Oh my heart was a skipping stone

But now the world has jaded me
Oh, corrupted and defeated me
You know I never thought you hated me
But I've never felt so alone

So, Jesus will you help me now
Oh, Jesus will you help me now
Oh Jesus will you help me now
No, I never felt so alone
So alone

Oh Jesus, oh Jesus
Oh Jesus
Won't you help me now
Won't you help me now
Oh Jesus
Won't you help me now

Hello Again

Hello again
I know it's been a long time coming
You say you've been
Out there now a long time running

You used to be, so beautiful
But you lost it somewhere along the way
You used to be so beautiful
And it's easier now to walk away

That wonder wall
You're waiting for is now collapsing
Tell me more, but wait no, no
Let me find out what you're asking for

You used to be, so beautiful
But you lost it somewhere along the way
You used to be so beautiful
And it's easier now to walk away
Away, away

Now you have
Everything you have ever wanted
Oh, it's so sad to see
When the hunter becomes the hunted

But you used to be, so beautiful
But you lost it somewhere along the way
You used to be so beautiful
And I'm sorry now I don't have more to say

Learned A Lot

Hey baby, yes I'll grave you
We all do what we got to do
Hey darling, I'm broken hearted
I've been crying but my crying is through

And I learned a lot
I've really learned a lot
Broken down on my bedroom floor
Yes I've learned a lot
I've really learned a lot
I hope you found what you were looking for

I spent a lot of time staring at the ceiling
I spent a lot of time talking to walls
Spent a lot of time chasing on that old time feeling
Spent a lot of time waiting for your call

And I learned a lot
I've really learned a lot
Broken down on my bedroom floor
Yes I've learned a lot
I've really learned a lot
I hope you found what you were looking for

Oh and darling
The sun has been falling
Like the dust on some mid-western plain
Oh and darling
Instead of running
I think it might be time to sit down
And deal with the pain

Late at night I sit and listen to the freeway
Rolling like a river on a distant shore
Nobody told me that living was easy
I ain't living in fear anymore

And I learned a lot
I've really learned a lot
Broken down on my bedroom floor
Yes I've learned a lot
I've really learned a lot
I hope you found what you were looking for
I hope you found what you were looking for

Cup Of Sorrow

I want to drink from your cup of sorrow
I want to bathe in your holy blood
I want to sleep with the promise of tomorrow
I know tomorrow may never come

I'll send a prayer out across the ocean,
To a man been forced out of his home
I'll send a prayer out across the ocean
So that he may not suffer there alone

I want to drink from your cup of sorrow
I want to bathe in your holy blood
I want to sleep with the promise of tomorrow
I know tomorrow may never come

I want to sit at your table of wisdom
So that not one crumb shall go to waste
For if we keep down this pathway to destruction
Oh well, our children will suffer for our haste

I want to drink from your cup of sorrow
I want to bathe in your holy blood
I want to sleep with the promise of tomorrow
I know tomorrow may never come
I know tomorrow may never come
I know tomorrow may never come

Clear Blue Eyes

(feat. Lucinda Williams)

When I look into your clear blue eyes
I could cry, I could cry
When I think of what they've put you through
You know it tears me up inside

Left alone in your darkest night
By the one you trusted most
How come they expect you to
Be such a gracious host

When you look upon that heart of shame
Now I have to face
All these accusations and questions that are
Aimed at your disgrace

Now you're left in the darkest night
By the ones you trust the most
But now just follow blind ambition
Like a promise of unknown costs

When I look into your clear blue eyes
I could cry, I could cry
When I think of what they put you through
You know it tears me up inside
You know it tears me up inside
You know it tears me up inside

Behind Me Now

All my best days are behind me now
Photographs tell of my wedding vows
And if you want heroes then I'd sail up to the stars
For all I got beneath my skin are tears and scars

I walked in these shoes ten thousand miles
Been through all sorts of bleating trials
So if you want heroes then I'll tell you where to go
I'll sell you a map to thank the faces that you know
Oh but for now I'll just be at this all night show
Oh yes tonight I'll spend my lonely dollar slow

Yes I've loved and lost and loved again
Happy ever after's never been
And if you want love than I suggest that you not wait
‘Cause I will know not what I've waited at heaven's gate

All my best days are behind me now
Still I find a way to live somehow

Mountains of Sorrow, Rivers of Song

Johnson Blvd

Up on Main Street
They built a highway
Changed its name to
Johnson Boulevard

Up on Thursday
Down on Friday
People ask me
Why are things so hard

Times been hard though
From Laredo
To San Jacinto
And it's a long way back home

There's an old train
In a stock yard
It's like a graveyard
Of things that come and gone

And the wind moves
On a gravestone
Where the men's gone
And everybody knows

Times been hard though
From Laredo
To San Jacinto
There's a long way back home
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Sometimes you're standing still
And the wind just beats you down
Oh and sometimes it's just so hard
To keep your two feet right there on the ground

Mother's faithful
She goes to church still
She prays on Sunday
And Mondays too

Father's somewhere
In the back field
Thinking out loud
That this ain't nothing new

Time's been hard though
From Laredo
To San Jacinto
So why don't we just go back home
Why don't we just go back home

Stranger

I'm a stranger everywhere I go

They say the apple
It don't fall
Far from the tree
"Hey Daddy look at me"

Well I went back
And I knocked on that door
But the man said that
"Your mama, she don't live here anymore"

I'm a stranger everywhere I go

I ain't got no bags to pack
I ain't got nothing left to my name
I ain't got no goodbye letters
So I guess I'll get right on this here night train
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I'm a stranger everywhere I go
I'm a stranger everywhere I go

And if anybody ask you if you see me
Tell that you never ever seen such a man
And anyway, he ain't no friend in the end

Well that scarlet lady
She tread upon my crown
I think it is about high time
That I head out of ??? harbor town

And I'm a stranger everywhere I go
I'm a stranger everywhere I go
I'm a stranger everywhere I go
I'm a stranger everywhere I go

Tricksters, Hucksters, and Scamps

Well he used to be so peaceful
Used to be so serene
Well if it wasn't for us here
It would still be pristine
He'd have fires a burning down on empty cans
All of these tricksters and hucksters and scamps

Many days I've got my hands full
Tryin' to find out what's real
But a bunch of hungry eyes will
Turn you into a meal
Beware that smiling face beneath that ole street lamp
He's got those tricksters and hucksters and scamps
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
He cut a hole in the bucket
Watched that water follow down
Said if I'm gonna be a hero
Gonna have to make a mess out of this town

Well he waited for a while so
Everything would turn to rust
Waited for he slept next to a pistol
Set a price upon my trust
But he stole that election
Put his face on every stamp
On his council were tricksters, hucksters and scamps

He'd been fighting for some years now
It was his turn to survive
Well they offered him a fortune
In the faith that he'd survive
Well the crowd went home happy
The nations faith lives with the champ!
All in his corner is tricksters, hucksters and scamps
All of his sponsors are tricksters, hucksters and scamps.


Chill In The Air

Well the morning came like a freight train
Bearing down on me from a thousand miles away
Well it came and gone and kept rolling on
Laying up all night with my tear stained sheet as my veil

I don't want to see you again
I don't want to feel your breath
As you leaned on me so peacefully while we slept
I don't want the keys to our door
I don't live there anymore
And I'll do my best just to forget
The dreams we've dreamt

Well the morning came with the pouring rain
And I feel just as empty as a pail
With the evidence and your crime confessed
It don't seem right that it's me that spend a night in jail

I don't want to see you again
I don't want to feel your breath
As you leaned on me so peacefully while we slept
I don't want the keys to our door
I don't live there anymore
And I'll do my best just to forget
The dreams I've dreamt
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
If you feel a chill in the air
It's my spirit hanging somewhere
And if you ever get scared
Look on the Brightside
You got a new life

When the evening's come
And I'm all alone
And I can't tell if silence is my former friend
Well I'm holding on, but I ain't too strong
I've gotta get some rest before that train come back 'round the bend

I don't want to see you again
I don't want to feel your breath
As you leaned on me so peacefully, while we slept
And I don't want the keys to our door
I don't live there anymore
And I'll do my best just to forget
The dreams we've dreamt
The dreams we've dreamt

Dresser Drawer

The phone rings
I don't care who it is that is calling
You moved our things from ours to his
While outside the snow is falling

The wedding band that meant so much
Signified our blessed vow
Like coffee spills and unpaid bills and all my pills
It's in a dusty dresser drawer

I watched these trees from green to brown
Suddenly this small town has gotten smaller
The arctic breeze it sings to me, and says now look
Any fool can go out and walk on water

I shoulda known that time alone
Would only serve to break you down
Don't know why I sit and stare at that damn thing sitting there
In a dusty dresser drawer
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Snow has turned to water to please the trees
And cheer up that late bloomer
While I'm sipping on a beer
Counting down another year
Couldn't come a second sooner

I wonder how
Easily that ring it slid off of your finger
Did you stop for a moment
Let the memory of us linger

Or was it just an afterthought
Like casting water from a bow
I'm past the point of crying
For a love that lies there dying
In a dusty dresser drawer now

It's such a goddamn shame
Right next to your picture frame
In a dusty dresser drawer now
If anybody asks me what I think
That love is for now, I'll tell them
Look in a dusty dresser drawer

Indonesia

I woke up in a box today
Just like every other day
And I just don't know where I should be

When will I be free

I grew up in the dark streets
Where voices called, voices go
You don't know your friends from your enemies

When will I be free
Oh, when will I be free

I want to go out
To the countryside
Find a little place for us
Find a little place for us
To run away and hide

Oh, the supervisor
His eyes are always red
He don't care if we live or die, he said
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
When will I be free
Oh, when will I be free

I want to go out
To the city of Rome
Or New York City
Oh, like Marilyn Monroe

And my love says to me
“Nothing's gonna change
You knowr where we were born
Is where we're gonna die, you see”

When will I be free
Oh, when will I be free
When will I be free

High Water

Whole lifetime have come and gone
And I'm still here on my own
Don't know when I'll ever get back home
High water, high water, high water gonna rise

Newsman come on the air
Sponsored by a billionaire
Says folks please won't you say a prayer
High water, high water, high water gonna rise

Lost souls breed and loot the stores
Doctors still searching for the cures
While I'm here waiting on these shores
For high water, high water, high water gonna rise

The Man Who Wants You

Misty mountain lady
Won't you borrow me tonight
I'm gonna keep you company
Oh until the morning light

I don't want you to be untrue
I don't want you to be untrue
But the truth is
I'm the man who wants you

Sit right down, and I will
I'm gonna give you an end to this pain
Let the game come easily
You don't have to understand

I don't want you to be untrue
I don't want you to be untrue
But the truth is, I'm the man who wants you
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Misty mountain lady
Won't you borrow me tonight
I ain't him and this ain't when
He did not treat you right
I don't want you to be untrue
I don't want you to be untrue
But the truth is, I'm the man who wants you

I don't want you to be untrue
I don't want you to be untrue
But the truth is, I'm the man who wants you

Loretta

She don't suffer no fools
She don't play by nobody's rules but her own
She got the peaches ‘n cream
That old ice cream dream
Deep down in her bones
Yeah

Loretta, Loretta, Loretta Marie

Well, if you're ever in need
There ain't no way she gonna let you bleed on your own
If she got a dollar to spare
And your cupboards are bare
She'll give you a loan
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Loretta, Loretta, Loretta Marie
Loretta, Loretta, Loretta Marie

She's the sunshine in the bluest of skies
She's the truest friend you'll ever have in your life

She ain't nothing but love
She ain't never gonna put herself above no one
And when the heat comes down and there's no one around
That girl don't run

Loretta, Loretta, Loretta Marie
Loretta, Loretta, Loretta Marie...

Mountains Of Sorrow

When I awoke from my dream
Awakened by the darkness of the night
I was unprepared to be unseen
I was prepared to fight

Oh the rains are bitter
The winds are strong
In the mountains of sorrow
And the rivers of song
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I was unprepared in my animal state
To contemplate the cruel winds of fate
And I'll say a prayer for those who carry on
Past the mountains of sorrow and the rivers of song

And I'll fade away
I'll fade away
In a glass of corn liquor

And the memories of Eden
The memories of fire and of wine

One by one the procession passes
Later in the day we'll raise our glasses
To a good man, now belongs
To the mountains of sorrow and the rivers of song

And I have a cabin of solitude
I built it with my own hands it's quite crude
Ain't much to it, this I know
But I won't leave too much behind here when I go

I'll be seeking my fortunes, carrying on
Past the mountains of sorrow and the rivers of song
Through the mountains of sorrow and the rivers of song
Oh these mountains of sorrow and these rivers of song

Burden

I never meant to be a burden
Oh I just worry more than I'd like to
I never meant to be a burden
Please forgive me if I've weighed on you

For so long I have lived amongst the shadows
Waiting for the sun to break on through
Oh it's time I cast my oars and head out on these shores
And find some place where I can start anew

I never meant to be a burden
Oh I just worry more than I'd like to
I never meant to be a burden
Please forgive me if I've weighed on you

Oh forgive me if I've weighed upon your back
It's so heavy already without me
Going ahead into this abyss and find my own way out of this
So you can walk ahead more easily
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I never meant to be a burden
But you're the light that is guiding me through
I never meant to be a burden
Please forgive me if I've weighed on you

Please forgive me if I've weighed on you
Please forgive me if I've weighed on you

Scared Money

If you've got scared money
Always lay it down
If you've got scared money
Run you out of town

If you've got the small stack, Jack
Best not be afraid
Either take the king down
Or get out of his way

They see you walking in
With a target on your chest
They see you at your work
But they want you at your best

Ain't nowhere to run
You in far too deep
The climb is far to high
The fall is far to steep

If you've got scared money
You always lay it down
If you've got scared money
Run you out of town
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
If you've got the small stack, Jack
Best not be afraid
Either take the king down
Or get out of his way

So welcome to my world
Go on take a chair
There's demons in your drink
And evil eyes are everywhere

Only hope that you gonna have
???
Either bow down now
Or come in for the kill

‘Cause if you've got scared money
Run you out of town
If you've got scared money
You always lay it down

There's terror in your eyes
Too afraid to blink
You're too afraid to swallow
I know what you think

You're up against the wall
The killer in your sight
The read the death slowly
Get back up and fight

If you've got scared money
Run you out of town
If you've got scared money
You always lay it down

If you've got the small stack, Jack
Best not be afraid
Either take the king down
Or get out of his way

Charles St.

Lolita you're a cheater
I don't wanna see you again
You had the guts to tell me
That you were my best friend
Oh but best friends
They don't do me like you done
You broke my heart to have a little fun

You called me up crying
Saying it was just a fling
I think you're just just trying to feel better
About doing a shitty thing
Oh but save them tears
I hope you feel ashamed
'Cause deep inside I'm gonna take the blame

Every man has his pride
Even though he keeps it locked up
Deep down inside
And I know you're just a little kid
It's more about the lies
Than what you did
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Lolita you're a cheater, I don't wanna see you no more
You showed up again crying outside of my front door
Oh but save them tears I hope you feel ashamed
'Cause deep inside I'm gonna take the blame

And next time you go downtown to fuck that asshole
Do one last thing for me
Don't park your car down on Charles Street
That's how I get out to eighty three

Lowdown Life

Meet this girl Lula, down in Missoula
Boy, we had a lot of fun
Took me to her trailer
Introduced me to her grandma
Who's drinking Kool-Aid out a water gun
Her grandmother's been smothered
By the love of a lowdown life
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Chicken's are clucking
Down on their luck and
Drinking water out of rusty pipes
Empty can of Stroh's
Half-eaten bag of Cheetos
Little brother in the backyard nodding out on a shot
Her brother's been smothered
By the love of a lowdown life

Her father, Roger, was a draft-dodger
Now he spends his days doing meth with his best friend Bobby Jim
When he gets that feeling takes to robbing and stealing
Parked cars from the Holiday Inn
Her father's been smothered
By the love of a lowdown life

Spirit

New Love

Softer than the summer sun across my window
Oh she's lying there, as the violets will bloom
Round and round this carousel, I am underneath her spell
She's lying there silently, I'm patiently waiting
Wondering if I can kiss her on her shoulder

It's just new love
It's just new love

I can smell last night's perfume
Like the sun up in the sky
While the moon is still there
All these times to share
I can't wait to say good morning baby
copy paste robots kill the internet
What you wanna do today
I can't wait to get you home
I'm gonna get you home, yeah

You alleviate my fears and my anxieties
You set my mind at ease
Your sensitivities are free
Your sensibilities will see and I can't wait
I say too I can't baby
Oh, what you want to do today

I can't wait to get you home, yeah
I'm gonna get you home, yeah

It's just new love
It's just new love
It's just new love
It's just new love

Running Out Of Time

Lord have mercy
Lord have mercy
Lord have mercy, please
Oh, yeah

Woke up this morning and the sky was colored gray
I gotta do a little bit better than I did with myself yesterday
Gotta keep myself from falling so far behind
Oh keep getting myself on down the line
Alright

Lord have mercy
Lord have mercy on me
Lord have mercy, please
'Cause we're running out of time
copy paste robots kill the internet
Saw my name on tombstone in a dream that I had
Oh you know I'm running round everyday tired of feeling so sad and bad
I gotta get myself a little closer to no return
Oh I know someday these bones are bound to burn, alright

Lord have mercy
Lord have mercy on me
Lord have mercy, please
'Cause we're running out of time

Oh that train come, full speed ahead
It's a rumbling down the track
Well I know that train ain't stopped before
And I know that train don't know how to turn back

So I
I gotta do a little bit better than a once I did
Oh, stop hiding behind my hat like I'm a little kid
I keep ?? keeping me upon ???
Keep on pushing down the road
And do a little bit better than once I done

Lord have mercy
Lord have mercy on me
Lord have mercy, please
'Cause we're running out of time

Oh, everybody, everybody
We're running out of time
Oh everybody, everybody
We're running out of time
Oh yeah
Have mercy, have mercy

Spirit

Walkin' down Royal Street
A street singer symphony
Ain't been the hardest way
Ain't had the greatest day
Walkin' past memories

And the pain that she gave to me
Don't you know I'm tryin' to be the bigger man
I just wanna feel the spirit
I just wanna feel the spirit
I just wanna feel the spirit
Washin' over me
copy paste robots kill the internet
Me and Madame Laveau
Seen some people come and go
Seen a couple storm clouds pass
Seen a couple spells been cast
People trippin' down cobblestones
Marching bands and trombones
Everybody's out here waitin' on the second line
And I'm just fine

I just wanna feel the spirit
I just wanna feel the spirit
I just wanna feel the spirit
Washin' over me

Storm clouds out up ahead
Singin' songs of praise to raise the dead
I got a heart that was born to be
Broken down and wild and free, yeah

Johnny came in on a train
With not a dollar to his name
Just an old guitar case
And the bruises on his pretty face
Walkin' down a railroad track
He aint never comin' back
Said mama "I don't know if I'm every comin' home again"
But until then

I just wanna feel the spirit
I just wanna feel the spirit
I just wanna feel the spirit
Washin' over me

Lost Child

Lost child
Only wants to find a place
Where he can fit in and play

Rain cloud
Hovers all around his head
He's hidden away

Through all this pain
Oh, I can see these clouds just drifting away
Through all this pain
Oh, I can see these clouds just drifting away
copy paste robots kill the internet
A black rose
Grows in the city garden
Hidden away

Despite
Not finding the proper sunlight
She finds a way

Through all this pain
Oh, I can see these clouds just drifting away
Through all this pain
Oh, I can see these clouds just drifting away, oh

Lost child
Hungry for a celebration
Sits upon a stone

Left with
Only his imagination
Still a party is thrown

Through all this pain
Oh, I can see these clouds just drifting away
Through all this pain
Oh, I can see there's gonna be a celebration day, oh

Highways and Clouds

Highways, clouds

Ain't no stopping
It's all I've gotten
As far as I've dropped in
As far as I've come

I'm from the badlands
Raised up by hard hands
You can't feel your face when
The wind makes you numb
copy paste robots kill the internet
Highways and clouds
Highways and clouds
We meet in the middle
With highways and clouds

Based Madonna
Do you wanna
Hop on my Honda
And get on the run

When you're rollin'
You lose all your schoolin'
It's all for fools man
That can't come undone

Highways and clouds
Highways and clouds
We meet in the middle
Highways and clouds

Highways and clouds
Highways and clouds
We're all lost a little
In highways and clouds

Ain't no roadmap
We lost it at Flagstaff
It's too late to turn back
There's nothing to gain

So swallow me darkness
The cruel and the heartless
Will hold to our harness
And feed from our pain

Highways and clouds
Highways and clouds
We're all lost a little
In highways and clouds

Highways and clouds
Highways and clouds
We meet in the middle
Of highways

Lightly

Met her on a Tuesday
Went out on a Friday night
Said she was lookin' for a love affair
And I was lookin' for a getaway flight

So we packed up a bag
And hailed up a cab
And I grabbed my guitar because
It was the only thing that I had
copy paste robots kill the internet
Well I learned to travel lightly
Babe, livin' alone
Some say that it's the hard way, mama
But it's all that I've known
And if I move fast enough, hopefully
Oh the darkness can't catch up to me
Hey, hey, hey

So we headed off the mainland
With the beating of a drum
She turned and smiled and said
Honey, where you from

I said I'm from all over
But I was born in the wind
She turned and smiled and said
You're goin' home again

Well I learned to travel lightly
Livin' alone
Some say that it's the hard way, mama
But it's all that I've known
And if I move fast enough, hopefully
Oh the darkness can't catch up to me
Hey, hey, hey

Oh I hear that train a comin'
Around the bend
Oh in the morning I'll be
Runnin' away again
Runnin' away, runnin' away again

When she woke up in the morning
With the rising sun
In her heart she knew
I'd be gone
But I wrote her a letter
With the words to this song
And she read it on the balcony
While the wind was strong

Well I learned to travel lightly
'Cause I was born alone
Some say that it's the hard way, mama
But it's all that I've known
And if I move fast enough, hopefully
Oh the darkness won't catch up to me
Hey, hey, hey

One Lonely Light

Sometimes I get the feelin' like I just ain't a damn bit of good
Sometimes I get the feelin' like a better man than me never would
Just then a chord is drawn
And all the pain there is gone

There are storms and there's storms and there's storms through the night
Oh the waves how they rage and they crash deep inside
Oh and when the wind howls and you feel you've lost sight
You'll be guided back home by one lonely light
Lonely light, one lonely light
copy paste robots kill the internet
Sometimes I feel as if the wheels are put here just to stay in place
Sometimes I feel that I could disappear into the air out of trace
Just then a chord is drawn
And all the pain there is gone

There are storms and there's storms and there's storms through the night
Oh the waves how they rage and they crash deep inside
Oh and when the wind howls and you feel you've lost sight
You'll be guided back home by one lonely light, lonely light

Oh I'll sing for you
What more can I do
Oh I'll sing for you

There are storms and there's storms and there's storms through the night
Oh the waves how they rage and they crash deep inside
Oh and when the wind howls and you feel you've lost sight
You'll be guided back home by one lonely light

Lonely light
One lonely light
One lonely light
One lonely light

Wait Up For Me

When you cannot get to sleep at night
Taunted by that new daylight
When you just can't sleep before the morn
And you do not feel reborn

Wait up for me
Wait up for me
I'll be coming home
So you don't have to be alone

When you're lost out in this world
And you feel you've come undone
You ain't nobody's little girl
You ain't nobody's sacred son
copy paste robots kill the internet
Wait up for me
Wait up for me
I'll be coming home
So you don't have to be alone

Well I'm ragged too
Just like you
I might not show it
But I feel it inside

Well I'm ragged too
Lost and blue
Feeling like a little child

Lately I've been thinking of
All the losin' that I've done in love
The wind she steals my sweet caress
Please feel me in your emptiness

Wait up for me
Wait up for me
I'll be comin' home
So you don't have to be alone

Wait up for me
Wait up for me
I'll be comin' home
So you don't have to be alone

Till You Come Back Through

Darling
I've been waiting my whole life for you
And I'll be waiting
Till you come back through

You say
You always wait
And I'm sure to find
Someone to ease your worried mind
So just leave this behind
copy paste robots kill the internet
Honey, you say that, oh you gotta leave now, forever
I have no choice but to say goodbye
Till you come back through
Till you come back through
Till you
Come back through

Hurt Me

Well the sun come up and I'm feelin' so blown away
Don't know what I'll do to make it through another day
'Cause I'm reaching past the breaking point again
And I'm beggin' you to put this to an end

I want you to hurt me
Break me down
I want you to hurt me
Let the pain lead me out
I don't want your mercy, tonight
I wanna see the devil in your eyes
Are you strong enough to watch me die

Late at night while I lie awake watching you so peacefully
Oh a fantasy of how you're gonna set me free
'Cause this brutal truth is too true to deny
And I'm begging you to free the pain that locks me up inside
copy paste robots kill the internet
I want you to hurt me
Break me down
I want you to hurt me
Let the pain lead me out
I don't want your mercy, tonight
I want to feel the devil in your eyes
Are you strong enough to watch me die

I want you to hurt me
Break me down
I want you to hurt me
Let the pain lead me out
I don't want your mercy, tonight
I want to feel the devil in your eyes
Are you strong enough to watch me die

Vaporize

Should've let you walk away the first time
Instead of letting you walk back through my door
As if I needed any more pain

Oh I've been waiting up so long
I've been sleeping out so long in the rain
Rain been falling down
I've been stressing all the time
And I can't seem to find
A little piece of mind

I guess I'll just vaporize
Everything that's inside
I guess I'll just vaporize
I, I, I

I guess I'll just vaporize
Everything that's inside
I'm gonna get
High, high, high, high, high, high
copy paste robots kill the internet
Now you wanna talk about the hard times
And all the joy that you bring
Are you even listening
To the strain

Oh I've been waiting up so long
I've been sleeping out so long in the rain
Rain been pouring down
I've been stressing all the time
I can't seem to find
A little piece of mind

I guess I'll just vaporize
Everything that's inside
I guess I'll just vaporize
I, I, I

I guess I'll just vaporize
Everything that's inside
I'm gonna get
High, high, high, high, high, high

Ain't no use in the truth
When the lies are raw anyway
Ain't no use in the truth, you say

Ain't no use in the truth
When the lies are raw anyway
Ain't no use in the truth, you say

I guess I'll just vaporize
Everything that's inside
I'm gonna just vaporize
I, I, I

I'm gonna just vaporize
Everything that's inside
I'm gonna get
High, high, high, high, high, high...

Walls

I know it ain't been easy
I know it ain't been good lately
All I'm askin' for you
Is just to be honest with me

She's writing on my walls
It's over
She's writing on my walls
We're through
She's writing on my walls
She ain't saying
Baby I'm not in love with you
copy paste robots kill the internet
Been a minute since we really connected
Got lost in the shuffle of our busy lives
I understand it happens
But I didn't think it would happen to us baby

She's writing on my walls
It's over
She's writing on my walls
We're through
She's writing on my walls
But she ain't saying
Baby I found someone new

My love's still here
After all these years
And all these tears
All these tears
Oh, after all these tears

Ain't nothing you can keep me away
Baby stay
But I'm starting to think things ain't gonna work out

Baby it's okay
All you gotta do is say
The real way you're feeling about me
I'm a man

She's writing on my walls
It's over
She's writing on my walls
We're through
She's writing oh
But she ain't saying
Baby I'm not in love with you

With You

Baby in your loving eyes
Baby in your loving hands
Baby I can see right now
It's only you who understands

When there are no cures
My pain becomes yours

Sitting in this twilight
With a half-drawn shade
Don't wanna lose that light
Never wanna see it fade
copy paste robots kill the internet
I don't wanna lose you yet
I wanna see another summer sunset
With you
With you

Baby the sea gonna rise
And then the sea gonna fall
I just hope there's peace
Somewhere beyond this wall

I'm gonna keep you here with me
Wherever you go
Wherever you're gonna be
That's where I'm gonna go

I'll be
With you
With you

Baby in your lovin' eyes
Baby in your lovin' hands

A Little Bit Of Rain

( Harry Belafonte Cover / A Celebration of the Music of Greenwich Village LP)

If I should leave you
Try to remember the good times
Warm days filled with sunshine
And just a little bit of rain
And just a little bit of rain

And if you look back
Try to forget all the bad times
Lonely blue and sad times
And just a little bit of rain
And just a little bit of rain

And if I look back
I will remember all the good times
Warm days filled with sunshine
And just a little bit of rain

Brand New

( Amos Lee EP )

Without you
I was just a room without a view
A stranger in this town without a clue

Baby my whole world is brand new
Brand new
Brand new
Brand

Now with you
Every day is like Sunday afternoon
And everytime you leave just too soon

Baby my whole world is brand new
Brand new
Brand new
Brand

Baby my whole world is brand new
Brand new
Brand

No, no, no, no, no

Now you've gone
I'm just a Winter's night without a dawn
And every day is just harder to move on

There's nothing I'd rather do
Than to be with you
Maybe we can start again
Brand new

I'm Not Myself

( Amos Lee EP )

And if you wanna leave me
Baby go ahead
I know you don't believe me
Oh when I finally said

That I'm not myself
When I'm with you
It takes and breaks
My heart in two

I'm half a mile from Jersey
The headlights on the shore
You know how much it hurts me
I never been this deep before

And I'm not myself
When I'm with you
It takes and breaks
My heart in two

And oh...

Does anybody have a clue
How hard I worked at loving you

And I'm not myself
When I'm with you
It takes and breaks
My heart in two

Jails & Bombs

( Amos Lee EP )

The one I love is lost without the least bit of explanation
Just goes to show the futility of self-preservation
Now all I seem to see is all this war, and goin' amongst our nations
What good will it do

Now everybody wants to know the secrets to our salvation
Forever reading on and on, from Genesis to Revelation
Never stopping for a second to examine situations
After all that we've been through

And love it only ends
When there's nothing left to defend
Will we ever see, yeah, yeah
The common bond of humanity
Go on...

Get a landscape of famine and also of frustration
And children walking round without the proper means to education
And still up there on Capitol Hill they're passing all this legislation
For jails and bombs

Still we live behind these hollow walls of lies and segregation
People walking round without the proper means to medication
And still up there on Capitol Hill they're passing all this legislation
For jails and bombs

Anybody out there can hear my prayer
Anybody out there can hear my prayer
Anybody out there can hear my prayer
Anybody out there can hear my prayer
Anybody out there can hear my prayer

Makin' Love

( Amos Lee EP )

Shake off that towel baby
Come over here
I'm gonna leave you smiling woman
Leave you smiling from ear to ear, yeah

We're gonna shake from the middle of the clock on the wall
Not worrying about a thing at all
Except making love
We're gonna start in the kitchen to the rug to the chair
Not having a single care
Except making love

Woah, woah, woah, woah, woah, woah
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

It's been a hard week, mama
But now you're free, yeah
I'm gonna leave you leaving me in a world of ecstasy, yeah

We're gonna shake from the middle of the clock on the wall
Not worrying about a thing at all
Except making love
We're gonna start in the kitchen to the rug to the chair
Not having a single care
Except making love

We're gonna shake from the middle of the clock on the wall
Not worrying about a thing at all
Except making love
We're gonna start in the kitchen to the rug to the chair
Not having a single care
Except making love

My lonely day
Seems so far away, yeah
I love you more than words can...say
This is how I prove my love

We're gonna shake from the middle of the clock on the wall
Not worrying about a thing at all
Except making love
We're gonna start in the kitchen to the rug to the chair
Not having a single care
Except making love

We're gonna shake from the middle of the clock on the wall
Not worrying about a thing at all
Except making love
This is how I share my love
We're gonna start in the kitchen to the rug to the chair
Not having a single care
Except making love
This is how I prove my love
Hmm...

May I Remind You

( As The Crow Flies EP )

Come here my darling
Come on now
You may not be searching
You may not know how

We're all born strangers
This we can see
We may fear each other
But each other we need

So may I remind you, love
What is inside you, love
The whole world is turning black
The springtime is sunshine,
The flowers grow back
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Baby your family
You may feel broken
But you're golden to me
Come to me softly, come to me strong
Just like singing in song

Don't spend time wasted
Believing a lie
A love you were born with
Oh it never can die

May I remind you love,
What is inside you, love
The whole world is turning black
The heart that's inside you is coming back

So may I remind you
May I remind you
May I remind you, love

Morning

( Amos Lee EP )

Morning, like a picture
Without a frame
Morning, like a smile
Without a name

Simple, so simple but yet, so true
Oh morning I know now why your sky is so blue

Oh I...I cannot see through
What the whole soul can see behind
There are some things so beautiful, yet still undefined

Morning, like a prophet without a word
Morning, like a soldier without a sword
Woah now...

It's funny how we see so much
But cannot feel a thing
Oh my sweet saviour
Morning, here me sing
Here me sing, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Morning, morning, morning, oh now morning
Morning, morning, morning
Morning, morning, morning, oh no morning
Morning, morning, morning

Say Goodbye

( As The Crow Flies EP )

You've been playing your own game, baby
And you didn't give me the rules
Now I'm sitting on the sideline
And I'm feeling just like a fool

You don't have to speak
I can see it in your eyes
Say no more
Say goodbye

You've been holding back the tears baby
You've been hiding all your hurt
You've been wrestling with your tears baby
Meanwhile I'm dealing in the dirt

You don't have to speak
I can see it in your eyes
Say no more
Say goodbye

You don't have to speak
I can see it in your eyes
Say no more
Say goodbye

You've been waiting, you've been waiting so long
But you haven't been saying oh and everything's been wrong
Now you're lying down with your steely silence now
And I can see where this is going
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
You don't have to speak
I can see it in your eyes
Say no more
Say goodbye

You don't have to speak
I can see it in your eyes
Say no more
Say goodbye

You don't have to speak
I can see it in your eyes
Say no more
Say goodbye

Simple Things

( As The Crow Flies EP )

When I am returning
Another day on the job
It's like a revelation coming home
Seeing you sleeping with the light on

It's just these simple things
Keep me holding on
It's just these simple things
Keep me holding on
I can't go back
Right these wrongs
Oh, but these simple things keep me holding on
Well I know it gets hard, baby
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Things get crooked and crossed
Sometimes I just get so hardly baby
I start feeling lost

It's just these simple things
Keep me holding on
It's just these simple things
Keep me holding on
I can't go back
Right these wrongs
Oh, but these simple things keep me holding on

It's just these simple things
It's just these simple things
It's just these simple things

The Darkness

( As The Crow Flies EP )

Well I never asked for nothing
I got nothing in return
Turn out that there's something
Letters bound and burned

Well I know you think you knew me
Well I thought I knew you too
I guess I was a fool but
That ain't nothing new
We all fall into the darkness

Oh the darkness
Oh the darkness
Before the dawn

Well I never was wasteful
With the time I had at hand
Guess I had to chase you
So I had to understand
That we all fall into the darkness
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Oh the darkness
Oh the darkness
Before the dawn

So go get out my records
If you take one last request
Tell me that you love me
That you always did your best
So I sense I fell into the darkness

Oh the darkness
Oh the darkness
Oh the darkness
