Sing it Loud 04:52
There are no handcuffs or cufflinks to bind me There are no prison cells If you've hurt me in your passing I hope you know that I wish you well Maybe I was born unlucky A bad star, a black cat too Maybe I lost everything I hoped for How in the world did I wind up with you CHORUS Sing it loud, from a mountain top Sing it loud and sing it well Hell was created for the unbelieving It worries me but it's just as well Just as well, it's just as well I had no food, I had no money No memory of how it was I kept believing, I couldn't give up I know it works, it really does Your feet are burning on that fiery sidewalk Your heart is hurting, how did I know? Forever after you must live your choices That's just the way, the way it goes CHORUS Sing it loud, from a mountain top Sing it loud and sing it well Hell was created for the unbelieving It worries me but it's just as well Just as well, it's just as well Why don't you try, try a little harder Let the hidden voice reveal the way You already have the time and the trouble Is there something more that I should say? You give up at the very worst moment Just when things are about to change If you held on then the grave would open For the living truth is that the truth remains Yes the living truth is that the truth remains CHORUS Sing it loud from a mountain top Sing it loud and sing it well Hell was created for the unbelieving It worries me but it's just as well It worries me but it's just as well It worries me but it's just as well

White wine on a pony and I'm heading home Take me as I am or leave me alone No matter what we come to We will never be apart Build me a castle in your heart Roses in a chandelier from Spain There's nothing that I wouldn't do again Whatever comes between us It will only hold us close So build me a castle in the place Where I love you the most CHORUS Build me a castle Build me a home Build me a wind that will wear away at the stone Build me a castle And we will never be apart Build me a castle in your heart Path of least resistance lead me in I am on my way to you again The moment hangs forever From the moment that we start Build me a castle in your heart White wine on a pony and I'm going home Take me as I am or just leave me alone No matter what we come to We will never be apart Build me a castle in your heart CHORUS Build me a castle Build me a home Build me a wind that will wear away at the stone Build me a castle And we will never be apart Build me a castle in your heart

There are sweet dreams and visions and nightmares There are dishes piled up in the sink And 'though I know it will only destroy me I am badly in need of a drink Some people spend their whole lives in prison For just what you are doing to me And If I am going to die with my pants down Then I know which end of me you will see CHORUS Call all the radio stations The talking heads on TV Ring out the bells from the ship to the shore To say I don't love you any more I worshiped the ground that you walked on I was glad it was holding you up If I had only known what was coming Then I would have been wearing a cup Well you've broken my heart for the last time I know that I have said that before No ones ever come this close to ending my life So darling I don't love you any more CHORUS Call all the radio stations The talking heads on TV Ring out the bells from the ship to the shore To say I don't love you any more I got some small satisfaction When you gave my friends venereal disease And I suppose that I should be grateful That you weren't sleeping with me They say that there's one born every minute So then I've done more than my share of time And I just hope you don't have a sister Waiting for me further down this line CHORUS Call all the radio stations The talking heads on TV Ring out the bells from the ship to the shore To say I don't love you any more

Peace 03:52
If I don't get to sing you A private serenade I hope you know I wanted to It would have made my day To hold you close as close could be Until there's only one If only for a little while It would have made me young There's a silken fountain There's a true release And if I don't get to show it to you Then may I wish you peace If I don't get to kiss you Ah that would be so sad It feels like I am supposed to Like I already have Life is such a mystery So deep and so profound Like looking in your eyes And watching myself drown CHORUS If I don't get to feed you I hope that you get fed I wish you all the finest And blessings on your head Somewhere we are together If only in my mind But I just keep believing I know what I will find CHORUS

I'm sailing around you Round and around Seen from each certain point With scenes from above Look into my eyes and tell me Who do you love? Will it last forever Will I leave you when it ends The story is still unfolding With scenes from above Look into my eyes and tell me Who do you love? CHORUS Tell me that you love me You know that I love you There's an awful lot of highway But I think we might get through Through the loving everlasting Of this moment we are in Comes the dawn And then it's now So let's celebrate it in I'm sailing around you Round and around Here in this land of dreams With scenes from above Look into my eyes and tell me Who do you love? Do I get to love you Or do I love you now? I'm not sure we can see from above Look into my eyes and tell me Who do you love? CHORUS Tell me that you love me You know that I love you There's an awful lot of highway But I think we might get through Through the loving everlasting Of this moment we are in Comes the dawn And then it's now So let's celebrate it in I'm sailing around you Round and around Seen from each certain point With scenes from above Look into my eyes and tell me Who do you love?

I went down to the western store To get myself some clothes Hand woven denim jeans Boots made in New York I want to look like I was there When the hard, hard work got done Like I put these miles on my face Last year when I was young Its hard to be a cowboy When you've never punched a cow That's not the part I'm after So please don't show me how Some day I'm going to Texas When my clothes are broken in Yeah I'll kick some ass in Dallas All the way to New Orleans But Tonight I'm flying to Las Vegas Into the wind and on my way I'm gonna dance like there is no tomorrow 'cause my pick-up truck is pregnant And my wife got towed away CHORUS Oh my pickup truck is pregnant Riding real low to the ground And now my wife is missing Sure, I checked the lost and found The last thing she said was "bull sh** !" And then she closed the door And I guess I'll never really know How come she left me for Tell me why it makes a difference If I look like what I'm not I don't need to be authentic As long as I look hot I can drink from the long neck bottles And talk that western sh** There may be some pieces missing But I've got the most of it Nobody knows what's real or not And don't nobody care I can squint like Willie Nelson does I got Lyle Lovett's hair You only have to look the part It's just like in DC Where they went and made a president From a cowboy just like me And Tonight I'm flying to Las Vegas Into the wind and on my way I'm gonna dance like there is no tomorrow 'cause my pick-up truck got pregnant And my wife got towed away CHORUS Oh my pickup truck is pregnant Riding real low to the ground And now my wife is missing Sure, I checked the lost and found The last thing she said was "bull sh** !" And then she closed the door And I guess I'll never really know How come she left me for

All The Things That I wanted I can't change them now I can be free in the long run Or I can be free right now I could dream about loving you Or I could love you right now 'cos the whole point of my trying Is to reach you somehow To reach out and touch you And then let you know That I've been loving you always From a long time ago I've been loving you always You're precious and so fine And you're the crowning, crowning glory Of my lifetime Every woman is an angel That you treat like one You look at your victims See the damage you have done You could stop, stop the hurting And the waters would clear And there in the mirror Love would appear All those things that I wanted I can't change them now I can be free in the long run Or I can be free right now I could dream about loving you Or I could love you right now 'cos the whole point of my trying Is to reach you somehow

The night is walking sideways And I'm four sheets to the wind I promised myself this morning I would not be like this again But I had a scotch for lunch And a few drinks in my car And I thought about my problems Now I'm drinking in this bar CHORUS How far can you go To the point of no return How far can you go 'til you can't come back at all How far is too far, oh I remember when But now I can't remember 'cause I'm in that shape again Someone said go see Jesus But they didn't tell me where I probably won't get home tonight I know that I don't care Let's have another sip of moonlight 'cause that moon she shines all day And if you want to forget yourself There will always be a way CHORUS How far can you go To the point of no return How far can you go 'til you can't come back at all How far is too far, oh I remember when But now I can't remember 'cause I'm in that shape again She was pretty when I met her But she's not pretty now 'cause it's the morning after And I don't remember how We got to this apartment Or how we got undressed Or what we both did afterwards Now I can only guess CHORUS How far can you go To the point of no return How far can you go 'til you can't come back at all How far is too far, oh I remember when But now I can't remember 'cause I'm in that shape again

See them on the street together Walking in the park Sitting in a restaurant Gazing in each others' eyes The light that never dies And she is on the telephone Love goes home alone See them in the elevator Going to their room They touch each other tenderly Their love is like a melody They play it out in harmony And she is on the telephone Love goes home alone CHORUS Love goes home alone And stares into the night And dreams about her fortunes That nothing can make right She reaches in the darkness Even though they are far apart And someone stares beside her And it just breaks her heart CHORUS Love goes home alone And stares into the night And dreams about her fortunes That nothing will make right She reaches in the darkness Even though they are far apart And someone stares beside her And it just breaks her heart They're standing at the boarding gate She swears she will not cry Sorrow cannot change the truth She turns away and lifts her head Love is sleeping, never dead She just hears a telephone Love goes home alone Later on that same day He's sitting in his home In another place and time Image plays on in his mind The dream is all he left behind He just sees the telephone Love goes home alone CHORUS Love goes home alone And stares into the night And he dreams about his fortune That nothing will make right Reaches in the darkness Even though they are far apart And someone moves beside him And it just breaks his heart

Patterns 04:14
The sun comes up And the sun goes down And the moon comes out And the world spins around And the streets go by And the lights go on And then the lights go out And we all must move on You know I wonder some And then I look for signs Then the sun comes up And I'm way behind CHORUS Life is always weaving the same patterns Yes, that you, know you must be mistaken Shadows break on your face Then I'm certain I've got to start all over Start all over again I've got to start all over Start all over again Start all over Start all over again Looks like I've got to start all over Start all over again You were close to me Like it was destiny Then time went by Now you're a memory I hear the night birds sing I watch the fireflies There's almost change Is that your alibi? The tide comes in Yes, the tide returns I dance on the shore And I never learn CHORUS That life is always weaving the same patterns That you know you must be mistaken Shadows break on your face And I'm certain I got to start all over Start all over again I have to start all over Start all over again The sun comes up And the sun goes down And the moon comes out And the world spins around
