Track Name: Sing it Loud
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
Track Name: Build me a Castle
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
Track Name: I Don't Love You Anymore
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
Track Name: Peace
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
Track Name: Who Do You Love
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?
Track Name: My Pickup Truck Got Pregnant
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
Track Name: All The Things That I Wanted
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
Track Name: In That Shape Again
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
Track Name: Love Goes Home Alone
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
Track Name: Patterns
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
