Track Name: Divide And Separate (Studio)
Changing times, disturbing warning signs along the path on which we’ve turned.
Talk the talk, but can we walk the walk across the bridges that we’ve burned.
Letting go of what we think we know and when we lose control we show our might.
Holding on to ties already gone and neither side is wrong if we’re both right.
This world of ours has lost its soul
Misplaced priorities and goals
The politics of fear, religion preaches hate
Divide and separate.

Now I know but I can’t let it show and so I’m drowning in my lies.
Try to find what’s lying there behind your failing smile and thin disguise.
Battles within absolve relentless sins and there were moments when we gave and got.
Playing games to hide our guilt and shame; you’d think by now we’d change, but maybe not.
This world of ours has lost its soul
Misplaced priorities and goals
The politics of fear, religion teaches hate.
Divide and separate.
Track Name: pcarll70
Place your memories in a paper bag
Take them to the river, deep and cold
Throw them in and watch them sink to the bottom
Without your past you never can grow old.
Without your past you never will grow old.
And as you say goodbye and grieve over your stolen youth,
Let go of both your nightmares and your dreams.
Neither holds you back or holds any relevant truths.
Your reality was never what it seemed.
And between the lies, confusion and disparity
There lies a point from which you don’t come back.
And in that instance of emerging crystal clarity
Perceptions all at once become the facts.
Perceptions all at once become the facts.

Take this pain and burden from your shoulders
And curse your god for having placed them there
And when it feels like everyone’s turned colder
Remember after this there’s no one there.
After all of this there’s no one there.
Who loves you isn’t where important answers are,
Who hurt you fans the flames and seals the deal.
And it doesn’t really matter what your memories are
If you can’t face the truth ‘bout what you feel.
And in that place between betrayal and just giving up
If you can reach and pull the knife out from your back
You can stop the bleeding, sometimes that alone’s enough.
Truth never was the basis for the facts.
Your history was never based on facts.

Place your memories in a paper bag
Take them to the river, deep and cold
Throw them in and watch them sink to the bottom
Without your past you never can grow old.
Without your past you never will grow old.
Track Name: Just Another Day
In my state of slumber with the crashing waves of time…
Sense of smell including touch perforate my mind.
As I walk into the sun and these feelings start to grow
And now I come to find the peace we all shall know.
I seek the morning sunshine and darkness as it comes
Remembering all the fun times as I rosin up my bow
And this time you will know.

As the fields of wheat gently wave into the wind
Slip inside the madness and let the fun begin.
We can take the morning light reflecting all we’ve done.
And by so many standards we have truly just begun.
So pick up all the pieces and wipe those tears away.
Laughter‘s all around you as you watch the children play.
It’s just another day.
Track Name: Blair House Blues
I’ve been doing time hanging ‘round your door the way that I do
Looking for a sign or maybe just a clue.
You’re staying away, laying low and keeping out of sight.
I hear people say I’m wrong, I know they’re right.
I know you’re out there laying low somewhere
Camped out on your stairs, I’m there…
When the night rolls in is there a chance you’ll take me back again?
I tried to do my best; don’t let it end.
When it falls apart will you pick up the pieces of your heart?
I tried to do my best; don’t let it end.

Here day after day, sun will rise and sun will set without you
At your door I stay, there’s nothing else to do.
And here day after day, as if drawn back to the scene of a crime
At this light I wait to see you one more time.
I know you’re out there laying low somewhere
Camped out on your stairs, I’m there…
When the night rolls in is there a chance you’ll take me back again?
I tried to do my best; don’t let it end.
When it falls apart will you pick up the pieces of your heart?
I tried to do my best don’t let it end.
Track Name: You Are
When I feel as though my life is closing in I cry for you
Reaching out to find some solitude.
In the depth of darkness I can see you holding out your hand
It makes me understand.
You are the light that shines through my darkness turning my night into day.
You are the thoughts and the sounds and the process; you are the words that I say.
You are the notes and the chords I deliver; you are the music I play.
You are the light that shines through my darkness; let your light show me the way.

I’ve been down and out reflecting back on bad decisions,
Never seeking out the truth.
As these walls start closing in I ask please take me from this hell.
I give my love to you.
You are the light that shines through my darkness turning my night into day.
You are the thoughts and the sounds and the process; you are the words that I say.
You are the notes and the chords I deliver; you are the music I play.
You are the light that shines through my darkness; let your light show me the way.

When I feel as though my life is closing in I cry for you
Reaching out to find some solitude.
In the depth of darkness I can see you holding out your hand
It makes me understand.
You are the light that shines through my darkness turning my night into day.
You are the thoughts and the sounds and the process; you are the words that I say.
You are the notes and the chords I deliver; you are the music I play.
You are the light that shines through my darkness; let your light show me the way.
Track Name: A Moment
Take a ride, a ride upon this midnight train and I don’t know where I’m going.
Passing signs, flashing lights outside my window, rolling by, the towns that we’ve been knowing.
The rhythm of the tracks and the smoke that I just had set my mind to dreaming.
Still I wonder will this moment last forever
I can see it in your eyes.
Nothing ever ends as long as we’re together
I can never say goodbye
I can never say goodbye.

Take the time, the time to look between the shifting lines, the time to turn some pages.
Black and white or left and right, the benefit of second sight, the going through some stages.
The memories that pass and the smoke that I just had set my mind to dreaming.
Still I wonder will this moment last forever
I can see it in your eyes.
Nothing ever ends as long as we’re together
I can never say goodbye
I can never say goodbye.
Track Name: If It's Not Too Late
As the evening closes, it’s just another sad good bye.
The guilt is on my shoulders; someone like you deserves no lies.
And with each passing moment I see frustration in your eyes.
The thought of not belonging…those feelings I just can’t hide.
Tell me what I need to do to make things right before we say good bye.

It’s not another story, the case in hand it rings so true.
Can’t believe it’s over and I don’t know what to do.
And as I cling to each memory that flash before my eyes
I can’t replace the love lost in my life before I die.
Those tears I cry won’t make things right; I’ll tell you why.
If it’s not too late before we say good bye.

It’s not another story, the case in hand it rings so true.
Can’t believe it’s over and I don’t know what to do.
Track Name: I Am The Song That You're Singing
I am time moving; I am time still; the wisdom of ages knowing.
I am the dark clouds over the hills; I am the rain that they’re blowing.
I am the wind across the divide; morning, the light that I’m bringing.
I am the storm from which you can’t hide; I am the song that you’re singing.
I am the wind; I am the song that you’re singing.
I am the storm; I am the song that you’re singing.

I am the longing; I am the fire; I am the lust that you’re feeling.
I am the dealer of all your desires and love is the drug that I’m dealing.
I am the answer; I am the plan; I am the church bells ringing.
I am the choir and I am the band; I am the song that you’re singing.
I am the choir; I am the song that you’re singing.
I am the band; I am the song that you’re singing.

I am the stories; I am the lies; I am the secrets you’re keeping.
I am your laughter; I am your sighs; I am the tears you weeping.
I am the whispers, voices unheard; I am the thoughts you’re dreaming.
I am the music; I am the words; I am the song that you’re singing.
Track Name: I Can Almost Say Goodbye
Long past arguments, and bitter words and resentments buried deep,
Between standing my ground and simply walking out
I try holding on then letting go of the anger that I keep,
But then I’m left with only memories and doubts.
And we can’t fix it if we can’t admit it’s broken;
And I can’t tell the truth if you hear only lies;
And you can’t hear my words if they’re all left unspoken;
And we can’t see there’s hope if we just close our eyes;
And at this moment I can almost say goodbye.

Long past angry stares and cursory glares marked by tears and bitter rage
In that moment right before dark gives into light
I try to clear my head of the things we’ve said in these little wars we wage
And seek comfort in the stillness of the night.
As I lie next to you and watch each sleeping breath you take
Each breath seems like some mournful lonely sigh.
And as you turn your head to face me as you slowly wake
I see that single tear drop cradled in your eye.
Up to that moment I could almost say goodbye.
Track Name: Say Goodbye
I never understood what you were trying to explain; now it’s coming back to me.
It’s just another game and I was caught up in the race and losing ground too blind to see.
Now I find myself in time, reflecting what we had and dropping to my knees.
Reaching back to memories, I know they’ll never be the way things were.
My life will change you’ll see.

With every breath I take I find I’m getting over you and now I have a second chance.
There’s nothing in the world that will replace the love we had but now I’m game to try to find romance.
Say good bye to loneliness I’m trying to forget, and I will feel no pain.
Most of all I pray that you will understand the words I speak today
Tomorrow I can’t say.

I never understood what you were trying to explain; now it’s coming back to me.
It’s just another game and I was caught up in the race and losing ground too blind to see.
Now I find myself in time, reflecting what we had and dropping to my knees.
Reaching back to memories, I know they’ll never be the way things were.
My life will change you’ll see.

Say good bye to loneliness I’m trying to forget, and I will feel no pain.
Most of all I pray that you will understand the words I speak today
Tomorrow I can’t say.

Now I understand what you were trying to explain so let it go, it’s fine with me.
