Hannah Jane

You've got your big girls
Now you have your young one too
Wonder if someday I can have them
The way I once had you

I remember your crazy remarks
We'd get drunk and go out after dark
Searching for someone we could take home

You don't wanna be alone
You don't wanna see the sun go down
You don't wanna open the door
And see her go
One step and tomorrow comes
Two steps and she's off with someone
Three steps and it's all you know
You'll be home
She'll be gone

So what are you gonna do about me?
I'll be there when you have no one else
Spotted the ocean in the south's Holy Land
I'll be there, be your friend

Hold on strong
Don't let go
There'll never be no one to take your place
So don't you wanna reach out and take my hand

One step and tomorrow comes
Two steps and she's off with someone
Three steps and it's all you know
You'll be home
She'll be gone

Hold My Hand

With a little love, and some tenderness
We'll walk upon the water
We'll rise above the mess
With a little peace, and some harmony
We'll take the world together
We'll take 'em by the hand

'Cause I've got a hand for you
'Cause I wanna run with you

Yesterday, I saw you standing there
Your head was down, your eyes were red
No comb had touched your hair
I said get up, and let me see you smile
We'll take a walk together
Walk the road awhile

'Cause I've got a hand for you
'Cause I wanna run with you

Hold my hand
Want you to hold my hand
Hold my hand
I'll take you to a place where you can be
Hold my hand
Anything you wanna be because
I wanna love you the best that, the best that I can

See I was wasted, and I was wasting time
'Till I thought about your problems
I thought about your crimes
Then I stood up, and then I screamed aloud
I don't wanna be part of your problems
Don't wanna be part of your crowd, no

'Cause I've got a hand for you
'Cause I wanna run with you

Hold my hand
Want you to hold my hand
Hold my hand
I'll take you to the Promised Land
Hold my hand
Maybe we can't change the world but
I wanna love you the best that, the best that I can

Hold my hand
Want you to hold my hand
Hold my hand
I'll take you to a place where you can be
Hold my hand
Anything you wanna be because
I...

Hold my hand
Want you to hold my hand
Hold my hand
I'll take you to the Promised Land
Hold my hand
Maybe we can't change the world but
I wanna love you the best that, best that I can
The best that I can

Let Her Cry

She sits alone by a lamppost
Trying to find a thought that's escaped her mind
She says Dad's the one I love the most
But Stipe's not far behind

She never lets me in
Only tells me where she's been
When she's had too much to drink
I say that I don't care
I just run my hands through her dark hair
Then I pray to God you gotta
Help me fly away

And just let her cry
If the tears fall down like rain
Let her sing
If it eases all her pain
Let her go
Let her walk right out on me
And if the sun comes up tomorrow
Let her be
Let her be

This morning I woke up alone
Found a note standing by the phone
Saying baby, maybe I'll be back someday
I wanted to look for you
You walked in, I didn't know just what I should do
So I, sat back down and had a beer and felt sorry for myself

Saying let her cry
If the tears fall down like rain
Let her sing
If it eases all her pain
Let her go
Let her walk right out on me
And if the sun comes up tomorrow
Let her be

Last night I tried to leave
Cried so much I could not believe
She was the same girl I fell in love with long ago
She went in the back to get high
I sat down on my couch and cried yelling
Oh momma please help me
Won't you hold my hand?

Let her cry
If the tears fall down like rain
Let her sing
If it eases all her pain
Let her go
Let her walk right out on me
And if the sun comes up tomorrow
Let her be

Let her cry
If the tears fall down like rain
Let her sing
If it eases all her pain
Let her go
Let her walk right out on me
And if the sun comes up tomorrow
Let her be
Oh, let her be

Only Wanna Be With You

You and me, we come from different worlds
You like to laugh at me when I look at other girls
Sometimes you're crazy then you wonder why
I'm such a baby cause the Dolphins make me cry
But there's nothing I can do
I've been looking for a girl like you

You look at me, you got nothing left to say
I'm gonna pout at you until I get my way
I won't dance, you won't sing
I just wanna love you but you wanna wear my ring
But there's nothing I can do
I only wanna be with you
You can call me your fool
I only wanna be with you

Put on a little Dylan
Sittin' on a fence
I said, "That line is great" you asked me what it meant by
Said I shot a man named Gray
Took his wife to Italy
She inherited a million bucks, when she died it came to me
I can't help it if I'm lucky
I only wanna be with you
Ain't Bobby so cool
I only wanna be with you

Yeah I'm tangled up in blue
I only wanna be with you
You can call me your fool
Only wanna be with you

Sometimes I wonder if we'll ever end
You get so mad at me when I go out with my friends
Sometimes you're crazy then you wonder why
I'm such a baby and the Dolphins make me cry
There's nothing I can do I only wanna be with you
You can call me a fool
I only wanna be with you
Yeah I'm tangled up in blue
I only wanna be with you

Running From An Angel

Don't look a gift horse in the mouth
Come on try and tell me what they're talking about
Those things you're dealing with, you're living a lie
Everytime I see you it makes me wanna cry

The times we laughed and talked, seems like yesterday
Then you let the white horse come and take you away
They came to get you it was coal black
The wheels were in motion, there was no turning back

Running from an angel
Running to the devil, devil yeah
Running from an angel
Running to the devil

I gave up on you a long time ago
Well, there's something I want you to know
Your lying and cheating really tore us apart
Please don't come home if you're gonna break my mama's heart

Running, running, running
Don't make me cry again

I'm Goin' Home

Mama, please don't go
Won't you stay here, for one more day?
I've been your boy for so long now
There's so much I, I still have to say
The sky ripped open and I held my heart in my hand
Like a soldier on his very last day
Cried myself to sleep that night
And I listened as I heard the angels sing
Sha la la

Sha la la la, la la la la
I'm goin' home
Sha la la la, la la la la
I'm goin' home

Something inside of me makes me scream
How could God take you from a little boy
You'll be alright he's by my side
He's not a little boy, he's my pride and joy

Summer on the radio, when the phone rang
And it was Jeanette
Saying boy we had to let her go
I beg, "No, no not yet"

You left six of us to fend for ourselves
Guess it's just part of someone's master plan
We'll say you left cause you're my best friend
You were a light to them,
And I smiled when the angels sang...

Drowning

Trouble with the world is we're too busy to think about it, all right
Why is there a rebel flag hanging from the state house walls?
Tired of hearin' this shit about heritage not hate
Time to make the world a better place

Why must we hate one another?
Well no matter what we gotta live together
Just that you don't look like me, tell me what do you see
When we pass on the street what do you wanna see

P.E.'s coming is all I gotta say
Wanna turn and run away
They're just telling you how they see it
Right or wrong they don't care, you wish that they would quit

Drowning in a sea of tears
Hatred trying to hide your fears
Living only for yourself
Hating everybody else
Cause they don't look like you

Nanci singing it's a hard life wherever you go
About some fat racist living in Chicago
Trying to teach his kids to hate everyone
Well tell me why is that something you wanna teach your son?

Why must we hate one another?
When the people in the church, they tell me you're my brother
You don't walk like me, ... you don't talk like me, saying
Go back to Africa, I just don't understand

I'm trying to be someone that he could look up to, but
When I walk down the street, tell me what do you see
I'm a man, I'm a man, I'm a man
No I'm not like you
Why do you hate me so
I don't know, I don't know, I don't know
Hating everybody else cause they don't look like you

Time

Time, why you punish me?
Like a wave crashing into the shore
You wash away my dreams

Time, why you walk away?
Like a friend with somewhere to go
You left me crying

Can you teach me about tomorrow,
And all the pain and sorrow,
Running free?
Cause tomorrow's just another day
And I don't believe in time

Time, I don't understand
Children killing in the street
Dying for the colour of a rag
Time, hey they're red and blue
Wash them in the ocean, make them clean,
Maybe their mothers won't cry tonight

Can you teach me about tomorrow,
All the pain and sorrow,
Running free?
But tomorrow's just another day
And I don't believe in...

Time is wasting
Time is walking
You ain't no friend of mine
I don't know where I'm goin'
I think I'm out of my mind
Thinking about time

And if I die tomorrow, yeah
Just lay me down in sleep

Time, you left me standing there
Like a tree growing all alone
The wind just stripped me bare, stripped me bare
Time, the past has come and gone
The future's far away
Now only lasts for one second, one second
Can you teach me about tomorrow
And all the pain and sorrow
Running free
'Cause tomorrow's just another day
And I don't believe in time

Time, why you punish me?

Look Away

Saw her standing there
Tears upon her cheeks told me something was wrong
I asked her what it was
She looked away and said, "My daddy's home"

I knew what that meant
It meant that I can never see you again
I had seen this once before
I didn't wanna deal with it anymore

"Look away", she said
As she turned away from me
And I tried to hold her
Couldn't let her be
Let her be, let her be

I said "Why,
Why do you make me cry"
She said, "I love you so
Look away, I don't wanna know"
I saw her standing there
Tears upon her cheek told me something's wrong
I said, "What baby"
She looked away and said, "My daddy's home"

"Look away", she said
As she turned away, my God
I know I loved her couldn't let her be
Let her be, let her be
Look away
Look away

She said, "I love you so... look away"

Not Even The Trees

Alone as I sit and watch the trees
Won't you tell me if I scream will they bend down and listen to me
And it makes me wonder if I know the words will you come
Or will you laugh at me
Or will I run

Little boy says to me,
"Where you goin' now son"
I said, "I don't know where I'm goin' boy
I only know where I'm from"
And it makes me wonder
If the stars shine when my eyes close
Or does my brother's heart cry
I don't know

I'm a stranger in my home
Now that everybody's gone
Someone please talk to me
Cause I feel you cry
And you're sitting with him
And I know I'll never see you again

Lying down in Charleston under the Carolina sky
You see I'm tired of feeling this pain
I'm tired of living my own little lie
And it makes me wonder
When I see you in my dreams
Does it mean anything?
Are you trying to talk to me?

I'm a stranger in my home
Tell me are you feeling alone
Someone tell me what to do
'Cause I'm feeling strong
And I wonder how you feel
Do y ou realize my pain is for real?
I see you in my dreams
And I wonder if you're looking down at me
And smiling right now
I wanna know if it's true
When he looks at me
Won't you tell me?
Does he realize he came down here?
And he took you too soon?

And now my days are short an my nights are long
I lay down with memories of you keep that keep me going on,
going on
It makes me wonder as I sit and stare
Will I see your face again?
Tell me, do you care
I'm a stranger in my home
Living life on my own
Right now I just can't see
'Cause I'm feeling weak
And my soul begins to bleed
And no one is listening to me, not even the trees

Goodbye

Tomorrow used to be a day away
Now love is gone and you're into someone far away
I never thought the day would come
When I would see his hand not mine
Holding on to yours because I could not
Find the time
And now I can't deny
Nothing lasts forever
But I don't wanna leave and see the teardrops in your eyes
I don't wanna live to see the day we say goodbye

Now there comes another part of life
I go alone...
Sitting at a bar with Chris,
That I can't leave cause my house ain't no home
I just wanna touch you girl
I wanna feel you close to me
Without your love I would give up now
And walk away so easily

So maybe while we're young
We'll figure out together
That even with the pain there's a remedy
We'll be all right
I don't wanna live to see the day we say goodbye

When I first met you I couldn't love anyone
But you stole my dreams and you made me see that
I can walk into the sun and I could still be me
And now I can't deny
Nothing lasts forever
But I don't wanna leave and see the teardrops in your eyes
So baby why break up
Lets figure out together
That even with the pain there's a remedy, and
We'll be all right
I don't wanna live to see the day we say goodbye
We say goodbye
Oh goodbye
Goodbye

Motherless Child (untitled track)

Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
Sometimes I feel like a mother... a motherless child
Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
A long, long way from my home
