about

I had to call upon the Name
who said call the Angels too
who said call upon Believers
who said Friends know what to do

And they lifted me again
and they paid my passage through
the many nights in Hotel Kiss Me
that I journeyed back to You

Track Name: Hotel Kiss Me
I don't feel it anymore
cause everyone's inside now
with the blinking lights
somehow
no one's knocking at my door
everybody hides now
living out of sight
somehow

So I dream about a place
and through memories' curtains race
when I long to see your face
Hotel Kiss Me is the place

Lover can you feel me there
where you lived beside me
always lived inside me then
running fingers through my hair
skin and breath to guide me
bringing me inside again

and you showed me who you are
as we sailed from star to star
and never feared the falling sun
Hotel Kiss Me you're the one

and there's always time to spare
and so many things to share
in a love beyond compare
Hotel Kiss Me I'll be there
Track Name: Miss My Own Company
Miss My Own Company

I miss the mountains I miss the sea
I miss my own company
I miss the prairies and the wind inside the trees
I miss my own company
I miss my pick-up I miss my code
I miss the feeling when I'm out there on the road
not doing nothing chasing a sound
not pulling over 'til I have to write it down

It shouldn't come as no surprise
I miss my own company
you saw the traitor and the dealer in my eyes
you saw just what you want to see
he said he'd lay his cards down just to be nice
behind our backs you know he had to roll the dice
I tried to shake him but I ain't gonna lie
all the while I couldn't help but wonder why

I'm going to Nashville to sing my song
I miss my own company
and I'll be thinking bout you baby all along
I miss my own company
I love you honey you're my best friend
there's only so much I could handle in the end
and New York City never been too good to me
I miss my own company

don't try to find me I don't know where I'll be
a motorcycle or a cabin in the trees
there's nothing sadder than the man I've got to be
when I miss my own company
Track Name: Revolution
There's something in the night
that just can't stand the light
there's something in the way you see me
oh my love

That makes me want to run
that swallows up the sun
that tells me you will never see me
oh my love

Gonna start a revolution
gonna start it today
gonna make up my mind
I'm gonna find a new way
hey hey hey
you say that I'll be OK
I don't believe you

I know you're on my side
but your love is like the tide
you come and go but you can't feel me
oh my love

Our star has lost it's place
our moon has been replaced
but there's a voice that never leaves me
oh my love

Gonna start a revolution
gonna start it today
gonna make up my mind
I'm gonna find a new way
hey hey hey
you say that I'll be OK
I don't believe you

I'll be OK
I'll be OK
I'll be OK
I'll be Ok .....
Track Name: Love Song
Time goes slowly
time just inches along
makes the loved one feel holy
and the lonely one wrong

If you found me
would you really be there
to wrap your blessings around me
like you did when you cared

This is my love song
It's sad but it's true
this is my love song
I wrote it for you

Heaven help us
Heaven help us today
let us live in the promise
that we once threw away

Cause we're so tired
at the end of our ropes
we have lost our desires
we have given up hope

This is my love song
it's sad but it's true
this is my love song
it's all i can do

it's all i can do
Track Name: Miracle
Your eyes are wild
just like a child's
but there's something more
a certain smile
that lingers while
you cross the floor

This is a miracle
this is what I've been
waiting for
I never knew
but now I do
and it's a miracle

I've loved before
and I've given more
than I'm giving now
but I got burned
and what I learned
made me change somehow

This is a miracle
this what I've been
waiting for
I never knew
but now I do
and it's a miracle

I walked along the night time streets
that was how I got along
laid with the shadows of the night
til I almost lost my song

So don't say you'll stay
don't say you won't
don't say anything
just let it go
and it might grow
and it just might bring

So many miracles
so many things we're
waiting for
you stick to me
and I still feel free
and thats a miracle

you stick to me
and I still feel free
and it's a miracle
Track Name: Misunderstood
Misunderstood
I never wanted
to be
misunderstood
I only wanted
to be by your side
but I never could
and I don't want to be
misunderstood

I've done all I could do
just to show you
I've done
done all I could do
and if there's one thing
I can carry with me
it's just knowing I was true
so please understand
I've done all I could do

Once in a life
you find somebody
who will make you feel this good
Once in a life
you feel a part of it
your heart is beating like it should

but now it's time we let go
and said our goodbyes now
it's time
time we let go
and if you don't know by now
how much I've always loved you
i guess you'll never know
but I don't want to be
misunderstood
Track Name: Black Widow
I remember you and me
staying up all night in your bed
trying to fuck each other into love
but love fucked us instead
it never showed us any mercy
it never showed us any fun
it never got the dishes done

those early mornings were eternal
between your cigarettes
your longing eyes like smoky telephones
calling for love like unpaid debts
and I believed I saw you naked
like nobody had before
but with each time you cried a little more
hearing those footsteps round your door

black widow tried to make me die
with needing
bleeding
she covered up my big blue sky
with grieving
deceiving

until the day I recognized him
and knew I saw myself
just like a coat I'd left upon a hook
or some old novel on a shelf
I didn't know that i was dying
I didn't know i was being led
I couldn't see beyond her web

I heard his footsteps for the first time
one morning as she slept
that's when I put it all together
and from her bed I leapt
I ran into the forest
I must have run a thousand years
I never turned back and i never have
though at times i miss her tears
though at times i miss her tears

black widow....
Track Name: Beautiful Woman
Beautiful Woman

Beautiful woman your skin makes me cry
and you've made a poet from a regular guy
but my words do not move you so look in my eyes
I'll sing Hallelujah to you 'til the day that I die

It's four in the morning or maybe it's five
but it don't really matter 'cause I know I'm alive
with this feeling inside me I can make the night shine
and it wouldn't worry me none if you said you were mine

You've been doing your best now
to find out who you are
I've been doing the same thing
we've both travelled so far
to find the one thing we wanted
was always there all along
the love we saved left us feeling so haunted
the love that we gave was all gone

So beautiful woman please be my friend
forgive me my trespasses girl and come back again
let me show you I love you and how hard I will try
I'll sing Hallelujah to you 'til the day that I die

I'll sing Hallelujah to you 'til the day that I die
Track Name: Somewhere In The Sun
Don't forget me little one
you will have your day
somewhere in the sun
and maybe it won't pay
to think of me this way
but i believe in you

I know i did you wrong
i know i made a mess
i want to make it right
but how can i confess
when you're not here tonight
you'd make me feel alright
cause i believe in you

and nobody's gonna change
gonna change your mind
not if you don't want them to
our love has been a heavy load
a long and winding road
so go and try to clear your mind
even if it took all time
i'd give you mine
cause i believe in you

if you want to drop the line
be with someone else
i can't say i'll be fine
there's no one on my shelf
oh my sweet gypsy wife
i'm loving you for life
cause i believe in you

and nobody's gonna change
gonna change your mind
not if you don't want them to
and though you think love let you down
there's still a chance to turn around
so go and try to clear your mind
even if it took all time
i'd give you mine
cause i believe in you
Track Name: Nobody Wins
I've made up my mind
changing my situation
trying to find
some kind of new vibration
I feel it way down in my soul
I'm ready to let go control

Nobody wins
nobody can
not with the deals
not with the plans
Track Name: Oh Lord
Oh Lord
make the time go fast
so this pain can’t last
oh my Lord
there must be some confusion
so much disillusion
deep inside of me

Oh Lord
make of me a friend
I must love again
oh my Lord
there’s so much pain around me
and my fears surround me
‘til i just can’t see

Oh my Lord
I lost the one who loved me
said she tried to love me
how she made me cry

Oh my Lord
please help me find a way now
get me through this day now
help me say goodbye

Oh Lord
help me walk the line
show me I’ll be fine
oh my Lord
there’s been so much confusion
so much disillusion
deep inside of me

oh my Lord
with so much pain around me
and my fears surround me
‘til i just can’t see
Track Name: Love Is Gone
Mortgages and marriages
little babies in their carriages
and bicycles for two

Someone to pull your curtains down
drive your station wagon into town
too crazy to be true

Send me all your words in June
we'll find some time to get away
a little money and a car
it's not that far
but still
there's so much time to fill
you'll find a newer thrill
I'll never live until
I know
my love is gone

December's coming down outside
snowing cold confetti for a bride
the wind's a wedding song

And I can see her walking there
going by my window not aware
my love is gone

Send me all your words in June
we'll find some time to get away
a little money and a car
it's not that far
but still
there's so much time to fill
you'll find a newer thrill
I'll never live until
I know
my love is gone
Track Name: Hey (are you loving anybody?)
Hey, are you loving anybody
Hey, are you loving anyone
Hey, are you loving anybody
Hey, are you loving anyone

It's time
to find out
it's time
to let it all out

What do you see
when you look at me
what do you see
when you're starting again
how does it feel
to remember how we parted
or are you even there anymore

Hey, are you loving anybody
Hey, are you loving anyone
Hey, are you loving anybody
Hey, are you loving anyone

It's time
to find out
it's time
to let it all out
Track Name: Minor Blues
I tried to write a song tonight
you know i couldn't get it right
it was just a minor blues
full of all my heavy views
i was trying to fill with pain
words so full of love and rain
the thought of leaving you again
and all the writing on the wall

I was still angry from the day we had
and then i guess it made me sad
the lullaby we sang in bed
was keeping me awake instead
you were talking in your sleep
your company was hard to keep
your body fighting in the moonlit sheets
telling me i had it all

And now i've got the minor blues but i don't have a song
been looking for that major key so long
so long

I've loved you for a long time now
we still don't get along somehow
we've been trying to make a deal
ever since we made it real
i know the story will not end
until there's nothing to defend
but when an enemy becomes a friend
will one of us be gone

Our love is like a minor blues
that tells us something's wrong
been looking for that major key so long
for one to find a way to choose
and one to carry on
find a deal we can't refuse
or say so long
so long
