Track Name: Weigh My Heart
What will it look like when I end my journey?
Should I be afraid of will I see some glory?
Who knows who knows, none can say

Don’t want to be another paper doll
Cannot let my heart shrink so small
Must stay, stay true to myself

Weigh my heart
Will I go to heaven
Too many faults will I be forgiven
Ooooh don’t let me have a heavy heart
Ooooh don’t let me have a heavy heart

Some people waltz around in lonesome pain
Eaten by the cinders so only the bricks remain
Don’t loose yourself in this life

Dark shadows dance round my bed at night
But in this static second I sing
Be in the now and not tomorrow’s light
Hold the pulse of my wrist and breathe

Weigh my heart
Will I go to Heaven
Too many faults will I be forgiven
Ooooh don’t let me have a heavy heart
Ooooh don’t let me have a heavy heart

Oooooh ……..don’t let me have a heavy heart
Track Name: Hand to Hold
A new found quiet is the necklace you wear
Show me a smile so I know you’re still there
Let’s go for a walk now and watch the leaves change
Seasons will pass but you will remain

Take my hand
We can only be so steady on our own
Take my hand
There’s no need for you to be all alone
Hold my hand
together well walk into the unknown
So let me be your hand to hold

The grass grows taller but it’s going nowhere
You can scream out loud but in the end it’s not fair
No need to be scared we all worry too
Just don’t allow your troubles to swallow you

Take my hand
We can only be so steady on our own
Take my hand
There’s no need for you to be all alone
Hold my hand
together well walk into the unknown
So let me be your hand to hold

The world cannot be fair to us all
Highs and lows so down we must fall
In the end fear makes us cold
Soooo let me be your hand to hold

Take my hand
We can only be so steady on our own
Take my hand
there’s no need for you to be all alone
Hold my hand
together well walk into the unknown
So let me be your hand to hold
Track Name: Secrets are Buried
Secrets are buried
Tales in the stone
Below our bodies
Lie the unknown
Drawn by desire
Hunting for gold
They left their familes and their homes

Sir Issac Newtown
Tried to devine
Gold from a stone
Chemistry cannot decide what we need

Tell me why do we have hopes and desires
Where do they grow from?
Tell my why do we have hopes and desires
Where do they grow from?

Sister I told you there’s mystery
Things that you nor I can see
Maybe we’ll find the hidden key to this alchemy
Muscle and tissue
Signals alighn
Is it love or a sense of time
Learning and growing tell me who I am supposed to be

Tell me why do we have hopes and desires
Where do they grow from
Tell my why do we have hopes and desires
Where do they grow from

Tell me why do we have hopes and desires
Where do they grow from
Tell my why do we have hopes and desires
Where do they grow from
Track Name: In the Dark Hours
Light dimmed down
The dusk is at hand
Waiting for bedtime when he lays down his head
Punch in your number o my hands know the way
findin shelter with the loss of day

He sleeps so long
He sleeps so deep
Pray that my secrets don’t up and grow feet
He sleeps so long
He sleeps so deep
Pray that my secrets don’t up and grow feet

Stealin your words
Stealin your words
Stealin your words in the dark hours

(Instrumental break)

These walls know what a wreck I have been
Sob into pillows, as my body grows thin
Your words my bounty and I swallow them whole
Could I have your body ….oh…oh…oh

He cannot find out
He cannot know
These little phone calls must stay secret you know
He cannot find out
He cannot know
These little phone calls must stay secret you know

Stealin your words
Stealin your words
Stealin your words in the dark hours
In the dark hours
Track Name: Lazy Eye
I knew you had me when you met me
Didn’t know how I’d say goodbye
You’re smile toyed with my perception
Deviated from my daily life

My heart doesn’t know
How to cope
My heart doesn’t know
What to do

I’m like a lazy eye
That knows how to walk away
I’m like a lazy eye
That can look the other way

(break)
Your touch grounds me like an anchor
Yet wish to be a passing tide
Not committing to one shoreline
Never still enough to feel all right

My heart doesn’t know
How to cope
My heart doesn’t know
What to do

I’m like a lazy eye
That knows how to walk away
I’m like a lazy eye
That can look the other way

I’m sorry if I still wander
But I’m trying to learn to stay still
Oooooooooohhhhhh

I’m like a lazy eye
That knows how to walk away
I’m like a lazy eye
You’re the one who can make me stay

Ooooooooooohhhhh
Oooooooooohhhhhh
ooooooooooohhhhh
Track Name: Fooled By Sight
I need the light of the sun to make me warm
Makes me feel beautiful and alive
Though I know she has to leave me overnight
For she goes to sleep
Makes me feel alone

6:49 and the sun has gone
I’m feeling lonely cause another day has slipped by
Goodbye to the sun, I’m too late
The day left like the message of a fading song

Fooled by sight we are fooled by sight
The world changes as we watch it turn to night
Fooled by sight we are……

Things get stranger as the world gets dark
And the harder and harder things become
Can’t tell what your doing
People get confused
Make mistakes they wouldn’t have made by day

The world can change with just one choice
Be true to life and love
We all get tired and we need to go to sleep
To start again
Go to bed now
Pray for the morning
know there’s another day to come
know there’s another day

Harmonica solo

Fooled by sight we are fooled by sight
The world changes as we watch it turn to night
Fooled by sight we are……

Ladadadadum……ladadadadum……….ladadadadum……….ladadadadum
Track Name: Information Flood
Information flood
Unable to function
Please don’t color my memories

Each day I rearrange and I
Build tiny bridges I can cross
I can cross one by one

I will find a new road
It will take me home
These neutral pathways
Will they leave me alone?
Let me search out a route
Won’t you give me a map?
And I will meet you wherever you’re at (instrumental break)

Bring forth those sad windows
Open them and let out a scream
This flood will not stop

Don’t tell me that you’re angry
Please don’t be mean
This flood will not stop

I will find a new road
It will take me home
These neutral pathways
Will they leave me alone?
Let me search out a route
Won’t you give me a map?
And I will meet you wherever you’re at

And I will meet you……. wherever you’re at
Track Name: Trust in Change
This life is not a waiting room
Nor a place for idle thoughts
Time to leave these tired walls
And feed upon the sun

Air so crisp and softly sweet
A contrast to my mood
It’s hard to breathe in real real deep
A change better come real soon

I….Know….
I can trust in change……..change

(break 2 times)
And the world is changing so quickly
And its leavin me behind
Need to know where im headed
Cause otherwise I’m blind

I….Know….
I can trust in change……..change

oooooooooOOOOOHH
oooooooooOOOOOOH
oooooooooOOOOOOH
oooooooooOOOOOOH

I can trust in change……change
I can trust in change……change
Change
Change
Track Name: The Lion Share
You are so self important
And you don’t know how to share
Your feet they grace our dirty ground
With your nose high in the air
Whoooooaaaa
Whooooaaaaaa

I couldn’t measure up to you
Even if I tried
I’m a wolf, fox, or a jackal
But you beat me with sheer size
Whoooooaaaa
Whooooaaaaaa

So you take the lion share
Take it from me
You take the lion share
Oh But it ain’t free
Oh its not for free

You cant see me though your mirrored eyes
So don’t you dare cast a stone
Cause we are all able to break
We are all made of bones
Whoooooaaaa
Whooooaaaaaa

Your confidence lies in your thighs
I bet you don’t fare well alone
So don’t tell me of your many guys
I know Your house is not a home
Whoooooaaaa
Whooooaaaaaa

So you take the lion share
Take it from me
You take the lion share
Oh But it aint free
Oh it’s not for free

So when it comes to being different
I accept that this is true
At night I know how to find love
So I wish good luck to you
whooooaaa
Whooooooaaa
So you take the lion share
Take it from me
Track Name: One Day
One day…….. I hope to leave…….. my armor in my home

With the shield
I must protect
My heart
From the wounds of love

With this sword
I must defend
My honor
And my family name

In the dark
I am afraid
When I’m alone

One day…….. I hope to leave…….. my armor in my home

-Harmonica solo

With the shield
I must protect
My heart
From the wounds of love

With this sword
I must defend
My honor
And my family name

In the dark
I am afraid
When I’m alone

One dayeeeeee…….. I hope to leave…….. my armor in my home
