Spain are a Los Angeles-based alternative rock band founded in 1993 by Josh Haden (son of jazz bass legend Charlie Haden). Initially connected to the 1990s “slowcore” movement, the original line-up included Haden on bass and vocals, Ken Boudakian on lead guitar, Merlo Podlewski on rhythm guitar, and Evan Hartzell on drums. After recording a well-received demo and 7” single, and playing frequently at legendary Silver Lake venue Spaceland (née Pan, currently called The Satellite), Spain signed with Restless Records in 1994. The band travelled to San Francisco in early 1995 and spent a month recording their debut album at the now extant Brilliant Studios, with Norm Kerner (American Music Club) at the producing helm. The debut 1995 album, The Blue Moods Of Spain, garnered the band a devoted cult following and enabled them to tour the U.S., Europe, and Australia. The album was included on many music magazine “best of” lists for the year. In 1996, Spain performed on the landmark French television talk show Nulle Part Ailleurs. During this time they also toured as the opening band for Cocteau Twins during the legendary UK band's final U.S. tour.

In the mid-late 1990s, several songs from Blue Moods were featured in different films and TV shows (Phoenix, In God's Hands, Winterschläfer ,  Garage Days, Popular). A huge Blue Moods poster appeared in an episode ofBeverly Hills, 90210. The Red Hot Chili Peppers covered their song “Spiritual”  in concert. In addition, “Spiritual” was recorded by Johnny Cash (on his Grammy-winning, Rick Rubin-produced Unchained), and by Charlie Haden and Pat Metheny on their Grammy-winning Beyond The Missouri Sky. In 1997, film director Wim Wenders commissioned Spain to write and perform a song for his film End Of Violence. The result, “Every Time I Try”, is an audience favorite.In 1999, Spain travelled to the Swedish island of Vaxholm to record their sophomore CD, She Haunts My Dreams. Participating in the recording were
the late Swedish jazz pianist Esbjörn Svensson (who contributed keyboard and piano performances along with string arrangements), former Soundtrack of our Lives guitarist Björn Olsson, and sometime R.E.M. and Beck drummer Joey Waronker. With new guitarist/keyboardist Shon “Goldenboy” Sullivan (replacing Ken Boudakian), drummer Will Hughes (Evan Hartzell had parted ways with the band in 1996), acoustic guitarist Podlewski, and new lead guitarist Olsson in tow, Spain toured extensively for the album, headlining large venues across Europe. A song from the album, “Our Love Is Gonna Live Forever”, was featured prominently in an episode of the HBO series Six Feet Under.

In 2000, the band, minus Olsson, stayed in Los Angeles to record their third album, I Believe. Shortly before the album was released, Sullivan left the  group to concentrate on his solo work, and Podlewski accepted an invitation to play bass for surfing superstar Jack Johnson's fledgling acoustic rock band. Rather than immediately put together a new group from scratch, Haden took an extended break from the band, recording a solo CD for Dreamworks Records (later released on his own Diamond Soul Recordings). A Spain best of compilation, Spirituals: The Best Of Spain, was released in 2003. Haden reformed Spain in 2007 with all-new members and began playing gigs
again in their native L.A. Since then they've shared the stage with Tindersticks and the Clientele, and have played at two important music festivals - Tanned Tin 2007 in Spain, and Filter Magazine's Culture Collide 2011 in Los Angeles. A CD/digital single entitled “I'm Still Free” was released in January 2010, and the band, now comprised of, in addition to Haden, lead guitarist Daniel Brummel (from the band Ozma), guitarist/keyboardist Randy Kirk, and drummer Matt Mayhall, recently completed work on their first full-length album of new material in over ten years. “The Soul Of Spain” will be released in May 2012.

The Blue Moods Of Spain

It's So True

They say life
Is never fair
That love's so far away
But I know babe
It's so true
It's so true
I know that
You feel so alone
And you cry yourself to sleep
But I know babe
It's so true
It's so true

They say fate
Plays cruel jokes
And keeps love from you
But I know babe
It's so true
It's so true
I know that
You feel so alone
And you cry yourself to sleep
But I know babe
It's so true
It's so true


Ten Nights

Storybook fable is ending
As ten angels are descending
I forget that you are my only friend

Love is my only devotion
Ten little steps to the ocean
Ten nights to decide
Whether I can live alone

Ten nights all alone
Praying you haven't gone
I can't stop love
I can't erase
What's been written down

Storybook fable is ending
As ten angels are descending
I forget that you are my only friend

Dreaming Of Love

Lost my way
It's alright
Lost my way
It's alright

I've been dreaming
Of love

And we're so close
And we're so near
Oh when we touch
Oh we'll disappear

Lost my way
I don't care
Lost my way
I don't care

I've been dreaming
Of love

And we're so close
And we're so near
Oh when we touch
Oh we'll disappear

Repeat Chorus X2


Untitled #1

Walked away
Released from all my crimes
Walked away
Released from all my crimes

But I could never hide
What I kept inside

Walked away
Released from all my sins
Walked away
Released from all my sins

But the cruelest thing
Was all my suffering
When I held you that night
I knew it felt so right
I knew it felt so right

Walked away
Released from all my crimes
Walked away
Released from all my crimes

But I could never hide
What I kept inside


Her Used-To-Been

She knew it was all over
When she turned her back
On her used-to-been
She knew it was all over

When she turned from him
She turned to me
But what was there to say
I see that you've been crying

Your old man's arms
Like to bear their fists
But my arms have hands like
The graceful mist


And all they want to do
Is hold you

Ray Of Light

Ray of light
I never see
Through the passing clouds
Or through the trees

When you left
Into the pouring rain
I knew I would never
See you again

Ray of light
Won't shine through
When love is through
When love is through

Late one night
I heard you at my door
But I pretended like
I wasn't home

Please forgive
Me for what I've done
But you know I would've done it
Like I did before

Ray of light
Won't shine through
What can I do
What can I do...

World Of Blue

Blue is such a cold shelter
Shelter
Shelter

Blue is such a cold shelter
Shelter
Shelter

Blue is the color of the sky
Blue is the color of her eyes
Blue is the color of the mountains
Blue is the color of the sea
Of the sea

Blue is such a cold shelter
Shelter
Shelter

Blue is such a cold shelter
Shelter
Shelter

Blue is the color of the sky
Blue is the color of her eyes
Blue is the color of the mountains
Blue is the color of the sea
Of the sea

I Lied

Holding hands down by the shore
And I know God knows it feels so fine
Holding hands down by the shore
And I know God knows it feels so fine

I said I loved you
I said I loved you

Holding hands down by the shore
Leaned over and whispered in your ear

But I lied
I lied

I couldn't love you if I tried

Holding you in my arms
In my bed God knows it feels so fine
Holding you in my arms
In my bed God knows it feels so fine

I said I loved you
I said I loved you

Holding you in my arms
In my bed I whispered in your ear

But I lied
I lied

I feel so dead inside
I couldn't love you if I tried


Spiritual

Jesus
I don't want to die
Alone

Jesus
Oh Jesus
I don't want to die
Alone

My love wasn't true
Now all I have is you

Jesus
Oh Jesus
I don't want to die
Alone

Jesus
If you hear
My last breath

Don't leave me here
Left to die a lonely death

I know I have sinned
But lord I'm suffering

Jesus
Oh Jesus
If you hear
My last breath

Jesus
Jesus

All my troubles
All my pain
Will leave me
Once again
X3

Once again

She Haunts My Dreams

I'm Leaving You

Made up
My mind
Tonight I'm leaving you

No love
To find
Tonight I'm leaving you

Nothing to say
Nothing left you can do

Tonight I'm leaving you

Don't need
Your lies
Tonight, tonight I'm through

Don't want
Goodbyes
Tonight, tonight I'm through

You can hold on
You can, it's up to you

Tonight I'm leaving you
Tonight I'm leaving you

It's All Over

It's all over now
He knew from the start
It was in the way
She walked and the way she moved

It's all over now
She told him somehow
It was in the way
She softly turned her head

It's all over now
And now she's free
Free to find another love

It's all over now
And when shes alone
She remembers her first love
From so long ago

It's all over now
How she thinks of him
And of what it would be like
If he were to call

It's all over now
And now shes free
Free to find another love

Before It All Went Wrong

There must be a way
To feel like I used to feel before
Before it all went wrong

Before I thought that love
Could never be
Before I felt your body
Next to me

There must be a way
To get back to where we were before
Before it all went wrong

Before I thought that love
Could never be
Before I felt your body
Next to me

Hoped and Prayed

In those days
I was all alone
I was all alone

In those days
I was all alone
I was all alone

I was all alone

Met a girl
And I hoped and prayed
That she wasn't the one

Met a girl
And I hoped and prayed
That she wasn't the one

That she wasn't the one

I hoped and prayed
That God wouldnt make
Her the one

In those days
Didn't know about love
Didn't know about love

In those days
Didn't know about love
Didn't know about love

Didn't know about love

Met a girl
But I turned her away
I was so young

Met a girl
But I turned her away
I was so young

I was so young

I hoped and prayed
That God wouldnt make
Her the one

Waiting For You To Come

It was love
Only love
Only love

Oh then why
Do I feel
So alone

Love
Only love
It's only love

I'm waiting for you to come

It was you
Only you
Only you

Oh then why
Did I cry
The whole night through

Love
Only love
It's only love

I'm waiting for you to come

Easy Lover

Easy lover
What are you trying to say
Made love now we have to pay

Easy lover
What are you trying to do
Made love now we'll see this through

Easy lover
What is there left to see
Easy lover
Now you know what it takes
To satisfy me

Easy lover
It ain't so easy now
Love just works this way somehow

Easy lover
You know it has to end
Now we can't remain just friends

Easy lover
What is there left to see
Easy lover
Now you know what it takes
To satisfy me

Bad Woman Blues

Some people say she is cursed
More trouble than she is worth
More trouble than she will ever be worth

I knew I could get away
Knew it wasn't good to stay
Knew it wouldn't ever be good to stay

I couldn't leave her if I tried
For I have touched her deep inside
Why can't these people understand
Why I am so sad, so sad

They ask me if I can see
She'll lead to the death of me
She'll lead someday to the death of me

But they may have overlooked
That I have become so hooked
That I have now become so hooked

I couldn't leave her if I tried
For I have touched her deep inside
Why can't these people understand
Why I am so sad, so sad

Nobody Has To Know

Nobody has to know
Girl we've fallen so in love
It was just a year ago
And you've kept it to yourself

Nobody has to know
Nobody has to know

Nobody has to know
Girl our love has grown so strong
Close the shades unplug the phone
How can our love be so wrong

Nobody has to know
Nobody has to know

Nobody has to know
Girl we've fallen so in love
It was just a year ago
And you've kept it to yourself

Nobody has to know
Nobody has to know

Every Time I Try

I want to hold you
But every time I try
Something keeps you
Out of reach

I want to love you
But every time I try
Something keeps
Love away

And I can feel it

So love me right now
Though it won't last
Girl don't make me try
‘Cause I'll lose you forever
Every time
Every time

And every time I try
To put our love out
Like a fire
You keep me in your reach

And every time I try
To throw away my desire
You hold me
So close

And I can feel it

So love me right now
Though it won't last
Girl don't make me try
‘Cause I'll lose you forever
Every time
Every time

Our Love Is Gonna Live Forever

Tonight's the night
That we're alone
So baby turn the lights down low

Girl our love is gonna live
Forever

All it took was just
One kiss
You're the one I'm gonna miss

Girl our love is gonna live
Forever

Soon we will be far apart
But girl you've gone and
Touched my heart
And tomorrow
I'm gonna love you
Just like I do today
Today

I believe

She Haunts My Dreams

Oh the feelings never went away
Like she did
Now she haunts all my dreams 

Oh love's traces left in memories
I was once alone
Now she haunts all my dreams 

Now she haunts all of my dreams
Now she haunts them all 

Oh I thought I saw her yesterday
Thought our eyes met
Now she haunts all my dreams 

Oh I tried so hard not to believe
I held her
Now she haunts all my dreams 

Now she haunts all of my dreams
Now she haunts them all
Now she haunts all of my dreams
Now she haunts them all 

Now she haunts all of my dreams
Now she haunts them all
Now she haunts all of my dreams
Now she haunts them all 


Born To Love Her 

Tell me why
She Makes Me Wait 

She's wasting time
And tempting fate 

Why can't she see
That her search is in vain 

I was born to love her
I was born to love her 

Tell me why
She's so afraid 

What destiny hides
Is locked away 

Why can't she see
That her destiny came 

I was born to love her
I was born to love her 

I was born to love her
I was born to love her
I was born to love her
I was born to love her 


Your Were Meant For Me 

Last night
Was just like a dream 

Oh girl
You were meant for me 

You were meant for me
You were meant for me 

All night
Girl we were so close 

Oh girl
You needed love the most 

You needed love the most
You needed love the most 

Last night
Was just like a dream 

Oh girl
You were meant for me 

You were meant for me
You were meant for me 

Do You See The Light 

Do you see the light
Oh do you see the light 

Won't need no sleep tonight
Oh do you see the light 

Oh do you see the light
Girl it shines so bright 

Won't need no sleep tonight, tonight
Just kiss me girl and hold me tight 

Don't it feel so right
Oh don't it feel so right 

The lord let there be light
Oh don't it feel so right 

Oh don't it feel so right
Surrounded by the light 

Won't need no sleep tonight, tonight
Just kiss me girl and hold me tight 

Oh don't you see the light
Girl it shines so bright 

Won't need no sleep tonight, tonight
Just kiss me girl and hold me tight 

Won't need no sleep tonight, tonight
Just kiss me girl and hold me tight

Put on your white lace 

Mary, Mary
Put on your white lace

Put on your white lace 

Make Your Body Move 

Two o'clock
You're all alone
Starting from across the room 

Come right here
Girl you know
Just what our love can do 

We don't have
To take it slow
Talking all the whole night trough 

I just want
To take you home
And make your body move 

Make your body move 

Girl you'll feel
Your loneliness
Drifting away from you 

And you'll see
This love exists
We found a love so true 

Now we have
Happiness
It's what out love will prove 

I just wan't
To kiss your lips
And make your body move 


I Believe

Could it be
That no one else
Could make me see
Could make me trust 

Girl you know now I believe
Girl your love
Has taken hold of me
Now I know
This love was meant to be 

Could it be
You feel so right
You made me see
Day comes from night 

Girl you know now I believe
Girl your love
Has taken hold of me
Now I know
This love was meant to be 

Girl you know now I believe
Girl your love
Has taken hold of me
Now I know
This love was meant to be 

Now I know
This love was meant to be 


Oh That Feeling

Girl
Oh that feeling
That was the love
You've been needing 

Girl
Your heart's beating
Faster now
You ain't dreaming 

Yes it was
That was love 

Don't let it slip away
Love's there for you to take
Stop playing these games with fate 

Girl
You've been waiting
You feel so much
Has been forsaken 

Girl
Your heart's aching
For the touch
Love's awakened 

Yes it was
That was love 

Don't let it slip away
Love's there for you to take
Stop playing these games with fate
Oh girl before it's too late 


If We Kissed

I know
If we kissed
Then love
Would follow 

Follow
Through the rain
And the snow 

I know
If we touched
We'd lose
Our sorrow 

Sorrow
Oh the rain
Could never know 

Sorrow
Oh the rain
Could never know 

Long Time Ago 

One time long ago
When the sun had dimmed it's glow
When the clouds were filled with
Rain and cold 

That was a long time
That was a long time
A long time ago 

Love has left me all alone
Her secrets left they're better left untold
Why oh why she left I'll never know 

But that was a long
That was a long time
A long time ago 

That was a long time
A long time ago 

Blue Moods Of Spain: A History, Pt. 1

Phone Call

She said she was feeling down
That's why she called me up
She said she was feeling down
That's why she called me up

She said she was feeling all alone
Sitting by the telephone

She said she was feeling down
That's why she called me up

She said she found her a man
That's what she said
She said she found her a man
That's what she said

She told me he couldn't feel no pain
She told me he was the pouring rain
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
She said she found her a man
That's what she said

She said she was feeling down
That's why she called me up
She said she was feeling down
That's why she called me up

She said she was feeling all alone
Sitting by the telephone

She said she was feeling down
That's why she called me up

So Far Away From You

My love for you is like fire
And I cannot put it out
Even though it gives me
So much pain

My love for you is like the ocean
And it cannot be contained
Even though it makes me
Feel so empty

Love makes me so confused
I don't know what to do
I don't want to think its over
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Love makes me feel so much
But it keeps me from your touch
Love makes me feel so far away
From you

My love for you is like a mountain
And I cannot bring me down
Even though the air is so
Hard to breathe

My love for you is like the sunshine
And it makes things seem so bright
Even though those things are so
Hard to see

What love puts me through
What I never knew
When love leaves me feeling
So sad

Love makes me feel so much
But it keeps me from your touch
Love makes me feel so far away
From you

Gonna Die Song

I feel like an airplane baby
So far up above
I'm so glad
I can fly, I can fly, I can fly

I feel like a bird now baby
With wings so wide
I can soar
Through the sky, through the sky, through the sky
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
I feel the wind on my face now baby
I'm over the trees
I feel good
I'm so high, I'm so high, I'm so high

I'm so high in the sky now baby
And I'm not coming down
‘Cause if I do
I'm gonna die, I'm gonna die, I'm gonna die

I'm gonna die, I'm gonna die, I'm gonna die, I'm gonna die

I'm closing in on the sun now baby
I'm getting real hot
I'm so glad
I'm flying, I'm flying, I'm flying

I'm soaring through the clouds now baby
I'm so free
I can glide, I can glide, I can glide

I feel the wind on my face now baby
I'm over the trees
I feel good
I'm so high, I'm so high, I'm so high

I'm so high in the sky now baby
And I'm not coming down
‘Cause if I do
I'm gonna die, I'm gonna die, I'm gonna die

I'm gonna die, I'm gonna die, I'm gonna die, I'm gonna die
I'm gonna die, I'm gonna die, I'm gonna die, I'm gonna die

To The Sea

I don't want to be anyone
I just want to live ‘til the day is done
I just want to drift away
To the sea, to the sea, to the sea
And I hope I'll never reach the land again

I don't want to see anymore
I just want to float evermore
I just want to drift away
With the waves, with the waves, with the waves
And I hope I'll never reach the land again
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
I just want to drift away
To the sea, to the sea, to the sea
And I hope I'll never reach the land again

Will Never Change

There's a broken window in my house
Its letting the cold air come right on in
I can only wonder why the window shattered
But its wintertime and I think it won't shut again

And I'm afraid
That this season
Will never change
Will never change
Will never change

Sitting by my window
Watching the rain come right in
In every cold drop
I see reflections of myself
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Watching the rain fall
Through a window that's but a frame
In this wintertime
I don't think I'll see the sun again

And I'm afraid
That this season
Will never change
Will never change
Will never change

Long Gone

When the sun
Decides to rise up in the morning
And say hello

When the sun
Stretches out its arms
And winks at me early in the morn

I'll be long gone
I'll be long gone
I'll be long gone

When my girl
Decides to throw her arms around me
And say she's mine
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
When my girl
Throws her worries to the wind
And says I'm fine

When my girl
Unfurls
I won't have no time for that
I'll have already left on my track

When my girl
Decides to love me every day
And all the time

I'll be long gone
I'll be long gone
I'll be long gone

When the sun
Soars so high up in the sky
And looks so bright

When the sun
Arrives to burn
Says every day will be alright

I'll be long gone
I'll be long gone
I'll be long gone

Love That I Have Lost

I'll put away my sadness
And I will find it disappears
I'll put away my madness
And I will find that I can think
I'll put away my gladness
And I will find that I can fall asleep
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
And dream of the love
That I have lost

I'll put away the good times
And I will find they evaporate
I'll put away the bad times
And I will find my innocence
I'll put away the meantimes
And I will find the time to fall asleep

And dream of the love
That I have lost

Hey Hey Hey

Hey Hey Hey
Hey Hey Hey
Hey Hey Hey
Hey Hey Hey

Hey Hey Hey
Hey Hey Hey
Hey Hey Hey
Hey Hey Hey

I'm so happy
That I opened my eyes
To see the world
Through my cloud of lies

I'm so happy Lord
I'm so glad
To see the things
I can never have

Hey Hey Hey
Hey Hey Hey
Hey Hey Hey
Hey Hey Hey

I'm so happy
That I can see
All the walls closing in on me
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
I'm so happy man
Now that I know
Of all the places I never go

Of all the places I never go
Of all the places I never go

I'm so happy
That I opened my eyes
To see that I have made me blind

I'm so happy Lord
I can just cry
And sing this song
‘Til the end of time

It Could Be Heaven

It could be heaven
Up there
Up above the sky
Lord says there's a place for me
After I'm through with this life
After I'm through with this life

It could be heaven
You know
Where I'll watch the river flow
Lord how I hope and prey
That's a place I can go
That's a place I can go
That's a place I can go
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Where I can go
Where I can go

It could be heaven
Up there
Up above the sky
Lord says there's a place for me
After I'm through with this life
After I'm through with this life

It could be heaven
You know
Where I'll watch the river flow
Lord how I hope and prey
That's a place I can go
That's a place I can go
That's a place I can go

Where I can go
Where I can go

Before It All Went Wrong

There must be a way
To feel just
Like I did before
Before it all went wrong

White Sand

I believe in nothing
I really think its something
I watch the world turn around me

I believe in something
I really think its nothing
I watch the world turn without me
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
And in the sand
In the white sand
In the white sand
We'll make love
In the white sand

I believe in something
I really think its nothing
I watch the world turn without me

And in the sand
In the white sand
In the white sand
We'll make love
In the white sand

I Could Be (The Only One)

I could be the only one
Who thinks about you
All day long
Who falls asleep at night
All alone
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
The day rolls in
The day rolls on

And I could be the only one

I could be the only one
Who thinks about you
As the clouds pass along
But to another man
You've gone
You've gone

The clouds roll in
The clouds roll on

And I could be the only one

I could be the only one
Who thinks about you
All day long
Who falls asleep at night
All alone

The day rolls in
The day rolls on

And I could be the only one

Waking Song

How can I know
If it's the morning
Or the shadow

How can I see
The sunshine
Through my window

Every time I try to wake
Its time to go to sleep
Every time I try to sleep
Its time to wake up
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
How can the day
Turn to nighttime
With these shadows

How can the night
Brighten the clouds
Through my window

Every time I try to wake
It's time to go to sleep
Every time I try to sleep
It's time to wake up

Every time I try to wake
It's time to go to sleep
Every time I try to sleep
It's time to wake up

It's time to wake up
It's time to wake up

Waking The Monks

I've been down
For so long

Can't get up
Somethings wrong

I've been down
For so long

Can't get up
Somethings wrong

Lord can't stop
Can't stop the suffering
I can't fix
The state I'm in

Levees break
Give and take
Levees break
Give and take

Ship has gone
Wait for the dawn
Ship has gone
Wait for the dawn

Lord can't stop
Can't stop the suffering
I can't fix
The state I'm in

3rd Of July

Take me to a place
Where the sun always shines
Where I can make a choice
Between wrong and right
Take me to a place
Where lovers can embrace
And feel

Take me to a place
Where I can decide
When I want to live
And when I want to die
Take me to a place
Where no one has a fate
That's sealed

Take me to a place
Where I can feel free
Where chains of servitude
Never touch me
Take me to a place
Where I need only live
For me

Take me to a place
Where I don't have to see
My life was written down
In a prophecy
Take me to a place
Where I don't have
A destiny

Without A Sound

I hear the leaves rustling
I hear the thunder rolling in

But your love came strolling in
Without a sound

I hear the fire crackling
I hear the rain coming in

But your love came strolling in
Without a sound
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
I hear the leaves rustling
I hear the thunder rolling in

But your love came strolling in
Without a sound

I'm Still Free

Say can you see by the dawn's early light
The birds in flight
At such a dizzying height
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Our flag still waves in the dusk
Who do you trust
When love turns to dust
Who do you trust

I'm still free
I'm still free
And I'll tell the world about it
'Cause I got no doubt about it

I want a love that will bind
All of time
Will you be mine
Give me a sign

Here's a salute to the old
Stars and stripes
From such a dizzying height
To the morning light

I'm still free
I'm still free
And I'll tell the world about it
'Cause I got no doubt about it

I'm still free
I'm still free
And I'll tell the world about it
'Cause I got no doubt about it

I Love You

If I could
I'd put away my sorrow
I wouldn't wait until tomorrow
To let you know how I feel
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
If I could
I'd look you in the eyes
And it wouldn't be a surprise
I would know what to say

But I'm afraid
Of what's at stake
Of what a love like
This could do

Oh it's my fate
To hesitate
From saying I love you

But I would if
You said you'd never leave
This little promise always to keep
This broken heart that wants you

If I could
Every time you held me close
Remembering when love at most
Burned in flames
Died away

If I could
I'd take you by the hand
And I'm sure you'd understand
Why it is I want you so

But I'm afraid
Of what's at stake
Of what a love like
This could do

Oh it's my fate
To hesitate
From saying I love you

But I would if
You said you'd never leave
This little promise always to keep
This broken heart that wants you

He walked on the water

He walked on the water
He walked on the water
The people gathered round
The people gathered round

Take me where the river flows
Show me where they found that gold
When I'm rich I'll sell my soul
My wealth will grow sevenfold

Take me where they made that find
Bring me my old .45
When they turn their backs they're gonna die
To heaven their souls will fly
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Darling don't you cry
Darling don't you weep
Soon all of the nations will be
Bowing at my feet

Take me where the river flows
Show me where they found that gold
When I'm rich I'll sell my soul
My wealth will grow sevenfold

Love at First Sight

I, I never seen you before
But it looks like now I gotta know you
When you walked right in
My pulse shattered and I'll never be the same
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I gotta know your name
I gotta hear your voice
If I could hold your hand
If I could kiss your lips
It'd be so fine, so fine

I, I never felt like this
Well, I'm nervous and my hands are shaking
But now I'm so in love
If I could know you, I would never be the same

I gotta know your name
I gotta hear your voice
If I could hold your hand
If I could kiss your lips

I wouldn't have to wish
That it would all come true
Oh, that would be so good
It'd be so fine, so fine

The Fighter

It took so long
It was so sad
To watch the fighter
Go down

In flames
Who was to blame
Things didn't turn out
The way we wanted

To blot out
The light of giving
To carry out the deeds we pay
There can be no other
Recourse for living
But to hold you closer to me
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
It didn't last
But I was so glad
To see the wretched
Come out ahead

All of the poor
And all of the meek
Will be remembered
At the reckoning

To blot out
The light of giving
To carry out the deeds we pay
There can be no other
Recourse for living
But to hold you closer to me
But to hold you closer to me

It Could Be Heaven

It could be heaven
Up there, up above the sky
I hope there's a place for me
When I'm through with this life
When I'm through with this life

It could be heaven you know
Where I watch the river flow
Lord how I hope and pray
That's a place I can go
That's a place I can go
That's a place I can go
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Where I can go
Where I can go

It could be heaven, you know
Where I watch the river flow
Lord how I hope and pray
That's a place I can go
That's a place I can go
That's a place I can go

Where I can go
Where I can go

Tell me that the world isn't there

To Be A Man

Well I heard you
Tell a story
And I tried
To understand

Between all
Of the words
I tried so hard
To be a man

To be a man

In the distance
Were the days
I was wasting away

You took me
In your arms
You believed in me
Anyways
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Don't go away

Can't you see that
You are my best friend

Well I heard you
Tell a story
And I tried
To understand

Between all
Of the words
I tried so hard
To be a man

To be a man
To be a man

In My Soul

Well I sometimes have my doubts
But I cannot live without
In my soul
In my soul

And I know that you are real
You are everything I feel
In my soul
In my soul

When I look up at the sky
And I watch the clouds float by
I can hear the angels cry
In my soul
In my soul
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Well I understand the words
And the whispering I've heard
In my soul
In my soul

But sometimes I have this fear
That you were never here
In my soul
In my soul

When I look up at the sky
And I watch the clouds float by
I can hear the angels cry
In my soul
In my soul

I can see the light shining down
Darkness rises up from the ground
Come to me what have you found

Well I sometimes have my doubts
But I cannot live without
In my soul
In my soul

You And I

Our love
Will never die
We'll outlast time
We'll never fade away

You and I
We'll reach the sky
We'll learn to fly
Just you and I

You and I
You and I
You and I
You and I
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Our love
Will never die
We'll outlast time
Just you and I

You and I
You and I
You and I
You and I

You and I
You and I
You and I
You and I

Waking Song

How can I know
If it's the morning
Or the shadows

How can I see
The sun shine
Through my windows

How can the day
Turn to nighttime
With these shadows

How can the night
Brighten the clouds
Through my windows

Every time I try to wake
It's time to go to sleep
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Every time I try to sleep
It's time to wake up
It's time to wake up

Carolina

Tennessee

Tennessee
You brought me up
You brought me up
You brought me up

Can it be
She brought me down
She brought me down
She brought me down

I'm a child of history
And I see
And I see

1875
Was the year
We really tried
You copy you paste you lose
She wanted to settle down
I'm a fool
I stayed around

Then the McAllisters came in
They took our land
They took our land

Mrs. McAllister
She said,
“Here's my bed
Here's my bed
Here's my bed”

Mr. McAllister has sent
Fifteen men
His very best

We can reach the Missouri line
If we take
The 155

Mrs. McAllister's with me
Can't you see
Can't you see
Can't you see

The Depression

The Depression
It ruined us
It ruined us
It ruined us
You copy you paste you lose
The Depression
It ruined us
It ruined us
It ruined us

Oh Marilyn

Everything
When the market crashed
Our hopes were dashed
We lost everything

Everything
When the winter came
We lost everything
Couldn't afford to stay

Oh Marilyn
We'd really like to keep you in
Oh Marilyn
We'd really like to keep you in

Memories
Disparate memories
Of New York
In the 1930s

Memories
Of the frozen lake
And the way we tried
To keep her safe

Oh Marilyn
There was no one left at home to let you in
Oh Marilyn
There was no one left at home to let you in

Apologies

How did we
End up here
In the heart of
Beverly Hills

Apologies
Apologies
You copy you paste you lose
I meant to call
You right back
On the phone
I never did

I was trying
I was trying

There was a witness
There was a witness

Up at the top
Of the stairs
There's a wake
The party's all there

I hear laughing
I hear laughing

Colors flow
From below
That's the show
The one we chose

We were denied
We were denied

There was a witness
There was a witness

Lorelei

I don't want to fight your war tonight
Put away all your guns and knives

I am waiting
Lorelei
You copy you paste you lose
I don't want to see the streets tonight
I am so weary and so tired

I am waiting
Lorelei

Violence holds
The scene below

People act out their paces
Go through their places
Burn all the traces

We alone
Carry forth

We are two so despite what you do
Despite what you see
Just don't give up
We're gonna be free

Lorelei
Lorelei
Lorelei
Lorelei...

One Last Look

One last look
Before the coal
Rustling brook
In Farmington

One last look
Before I run
Run
Run
Run
Run
Run
You copy you paste you lose
One last dream
Before the soot
Drifts through the seam
Trembles underfoot

One last dream
Before the dirt
Dirt
Dirt
Dirt
Dirt
Dirt

One last kiss
Before the hill
Bursts through the mist
Little Dunkard Mill

One last kiss
I love you still

In My Hour

Come to me
In my hour of need

There will be
Redemption and peace

Come to me
Come to me
Come to me
You copy you paste you lose
In the storm
There was lightning again

Never thought
That the earth would be the same

New Year's Eve
Is a dream
Eternally recurring

Come to me
Come to me
Come to me
Come to me

Outside it's cold
In the stifling heat
And it's warm
Inside where the icicles meet

They say that we need
All the rain we can get
They say our survival
Could end in this desert

And when the rain finally
Falls from the sky
The palm trees collapse
Cause the land is so dry

Water deep
Floods the streets
And the houses all slide
The houses divide

Come to me
In my hour of need

Battle Of Saratoga

Three o'clock in the morning
Snowing and I can't go home

Coming down in Kingston
Christmas Eve the roads are closed

Just like Walter Gibson
Knowing what the Shadow knows

And on their way
From Saratoga
They burned our fields
They burned our homes
You copy you paste you lose
Candy shop quartet
Free coffee and chocolate

Dreaming of the pine needles
Waiting for my next set

Hallucinating wonders
Drying out like Benedict

And on their way
From Saratoga
They burned our fields
They burned our homes

They burned our homes
They burned our homes

Commander of the troops
I tried to capture Bemis Heights

Talking in tongues
They couldn't get to me on time

Forced to retreat
I turned and ran to safety in the pines

And on their way
From Saratoga
They burned our fields
They burned our homes

Starry Night

The pain she felt when she came home
And found he wasn't all alone
The pain it was too much for one to bear

She cried out and yelled at him,
“How could you have let her in
My love's only for you and you don't care”

He took off after the fight
And drove into the starry night
There was nowhere else that he could go
You copy you paste you lose
What he did wasn't fair
But he could never go back there
To show a weakness he could not control

Stars shine so bright
Moon glows alight
After the snow

Stars shining down
What do they say
What do they know

She woke up on the couch
Stretched her arms and thought about
She knew soon he would be coming back

He woke up inside his car
He didn't drive it very far
He remembered what she'd said to him

Stars shine so bright
Moon glows alight
After the snow

Stars shining down
What do they say
What do they know

She started to want him home
She wiped her tears
Turned on her phone
She counted all the messages

Stars shine so bright
Moon glows alight
After the snow

Stars shining down
What do they say
What do they know

For You

Now I work all day and all night
For you
For you

And I have a part in everything
For you
For you

For you
For you
For you

For you
For you
For you

All my thoughts and all my chains
For you
For you
You copy you paste you lose
And the moon and the stars sunrise
For you
For you

For you
For you
For you

For you
For you
For you

Now I work all day and all night
For you
For you

Station 2

Long ago
There was a place
We would go
To celebrate
This was when we were kids

Down the hill
Across the bridge
Into the sand
Beneath the ridge
Just below PCH

Stumbling all the way
Stumbling all the way

We pulled our sheets
And stuffed our beds
With dirty clothes
And helmet heads
We snuck out the window

After we
Got to the beach
We were out
Of their reach
We dug holes to keep warm

We burned the Times
We burned the Times

After all
Those were the times
I'd give
Anything to go back
And stare into her eyes
You copy you paste you lose
Years went by
I grew up
My heart was ready
My head was stuck
I ran away as far as I could

There was a girl
I left behind
I'll never forget
Caroline
Cast aside
I never told her why

I watched her cry
I watched her cry

When I finally moved back
I drove to that street
Up at the top
Where we used to meet
I looked out from the edge of the cliff

I thought of the ways
I could pretend
Thought the days
Would never end
Now they're gone
And I'm standing here

Looking down
Looking down

After all
Those were the times
I'd give
Anything to go back
And stare into her eyes

Died At Calvary

Holy holy Jesus
Everlasting peace
Walked across the water
Died at Calvary
Oh lord how he died
At Calvary

Jesus up in Heaven
Wanting only you
Save me from temptation
Oh lord walk me through
The ruins

Holy holy Jesus
When you took your
First step across the sand
To the place up in Heaven
From the promised land
Oh lord how he left the promised land

Holy holy Jesus
Everlasting peace
Walked across the water
Died at Calvary
Oh lord how he died
At Calvary

For better or for worse
For richer or for poorer

With this ring
I thee wed

Yes I do
Yes I do

With this vow

Yes I do
Yes I do

In sickness and in health
To cherish and to love
Until death do we part

Yes I do

Do you
Take this bride

Yes I do
Yes I do

Yes I do
Yes I do

Phone Machine

I got a message tonight
It was on my machine
She said, I quote,
'Hope you're not asleep
'Cause I'm in my bed
And the lights are dim
And the air is hot
So won't you come on in

I got a message tonight
It was on my machine
But I got home too late
I couldn't even see
That the stars above
Deter me from love
'Cause she's in her bed
And the lights are dim
And the air is hot
So won't you come on in

Red Line

(Live)

Take me to the red line
Take me to the red line
Take me to the red line

He was born
In a cardboard shack
Three Wise Men
Said he's coming back

Take me to the red line
Take me to the red line
Take me to the red line
Take me to the red line

Different colors
Form a golden stack
You can't avoid
The proletariat

Take me to the red line
Take me to the red line
Take me to the red line
Take me to the red line

Rich Little Poor Boy

(Spain at 20th St. House, SF CA 22​/​05​/​1993)

Made contact in her limousine
Poor boy don't you know what I mean
Made contact and she's alright
Driving down the the streets of night

Made contact
She said Oh hell
Poor boy how you ring my bell
I'm a rich girl but I'm so blue
Poor boy baby I love you

Made contact in her limousine
Poor boy don't you know what I mean
Made contact and she's alright
Driving down the the streets of night

Suffering

Suffering
Suffering

I've been a fool
For loving you

Suffering
Suffering

Monday the 12th
The day we met

Three years ago
Our future was set

Suffering
Suffering

Selfish pride
Left me here

Left me to die
At the altar

Suffering
Suffering

Suffering
Suffering

Suffering
Suffering

Tangerine

(Live)

I see
The lie through the seal
Lie through the seal
Tonight

Through the seal
I’ll make the lie my own
Mary won’t know
This time

White fields
Of rain over me
Rain over me
In time

White seas
This claim distills me
Mary won’t drink
This wine
