I Will Wait

Aboard his ship he stops to stare
Needs to smell her, touch her hair
Says "I can't be without her"
Tonight he's going to be without her

"It's late now", she says
Makes her mind up goes to bed
Another night alone without him
Another night alone in Charleston

When I wake to find the solace of
All that we've become
I can't wait to make the promises
I've been leery of

I'll be there waiting for you
In the morning when times have changed
I'll be there through the lies and all
Standing like your soldiers
You hold your secrets
Through the days when I need to be alone
I will wait for you
Through the lies and all

She was left behind so they could stay
God to feel him this she prays
It would make her feel so much better
I want to feel so much better

Wishing

At least you tried
That's more than anyone around you
And if you lied
Would it fade out of your memory

Wishing it all away from you
Wishing is all you'll ever do
Wish I was here with you
Then I'd be fine

And if you died
Would they gather all around you
And if you cried
Would it wash away your misery

It's worse at night
Spirits flying all around you
Without the light
They can take away your sanity

Las Vegas Nights

Las Vegas nights
Have been calling
But I wait to see her float down stairs

There she stands with her eyes full and yearning
I look
And I know gotta be there
Is there another chance
To bring her closer
Make her feel I know we could be happy again

Is there another chance
To bring her flowers
So she will only whisper my name

A chance to make things right for her
And make my lies seem true
I'm begging do

Don't go down to the station
Somehow we won't live that long
Don't go now, desert flower
Cause you just won't bloom
And your memories made need more room

See that mirror there
Will she look inside
To see the one I fear standing alone

And on my phonograph
Will she put them in
The songs that only remind her of me

A chance to make things right for her
And make my life seem true
I'm begging Do

I step outside The Joint
To clouds of guilt and fear
And there are shades of red dancing in view

Las Vegas nights
Make me wonder
How much longer I will be a fool

A chance to make things right for her
Make my lies seem true
I'm begging do

Only Lonely

Hello again
Your words they make me smile
As I drift away
In my little room upstairs

Oh I spend my nights
Imagining your face your touch
Then I realize
How I don't even know your name
If we could share our time
Would I disappoint your fantasies
I believe that you could be the one I'm needing
'cause I'm

Only lonely on the inside
Didn't mean to take away your dreams
Only lonely on the inside
When you close your eyes to your deepest thoughts

I could start to give apologies
For all the stupid things That I will say and I will do
If we should ever cross the same place at the same time
Would your world skip a beat 'cause it was me

If we could share our life
Would I disappoint your memories
I believe that I could be the one your needing
And I'm

If I could give back your hopes your joys your treasures
Don't you think that I would change my world
But there's so many things trying to pull us together
Even though we're far apart I can still watch you walk away

Only lonely on the inside
Didn't mean to take away your dreams
Only lonely on the inside
When you close your eyes do you see me

(in your deepest thoughts do you see me)
(when you close your eyes, in your deepest thoughts do you see me)

Answer Man

You must retreat now
I just can't talk anymore
Your words make me empty inside
There's nothing left of you

Time seems to change
Thoughts I have for you
Now I'm so alive
But you seem to be
Drowning every minute

I say that's life
You say it's alright

I can't be your answer and
I don't want to follow you
Into your cloud

I am tired of being the one
To live and learn from your mistakes
I'm just so sick of my mind

It sees us like a light
Shining bright
In the middle
Don't you see us smiling now

You say that's life
I say it's alright

Please open your eyes
See where you sleep tonight
I hope you never call it home
But your bound to live bound to die in it
You say that's life
I say I'll still be here

Michelle Post

I met a girl just the other day
Stop to talk she had a lot to say
She told me all about her politics
Then she told me something that made me sick

Michele Post knows all about it
But she don't want just to talk about it
She got everything that she believes in
She's got something and she wants let me in

Bluesy Revolution

It's almost like
We came back wet
Back from the dead
And I'm thinking of you

We traveled long
We traveled hard
To long to bear
Hard just to come through

And when I stop
I see you there
You make me feel
What more must I do

My revolution is reigning peace
And there is nothing I can see
Is there a reason we should seek

Please let me see
That I can bleed
And I can answer
To all that is true

I stumbled long
And I fell hard
We loved so strong
For all that we knew

Please hear me now
And hold your anger somehow
But why must it be me

My revolution is reigning peace
And there is nothing that I can see
Is there a reason we should seek
When the end is all I see

And when I wake
I sing your song
Somewhere you stir
Cause your wanting me too

Don't listen to
The others answers
Our love is not new

Home Again

Your letter came yesterday
You're flying home for Christmas
Could you stop to see me smile

I sat down to remember
All the pain we shared
But I drifted to times not so hard

Oh I see you in the corner of
Life's grand ballroom
And I tremble to see you again

Let's all go home again
Find where we have been
Time is never understood
I see you holding me
Please don't let me be
Tonight just may be our last

The bell rings to tell me
You're here now
And I wonder if your eyes glow and sparkle in the night

And I can't believe you look this way
Like a doll in satin
On a birthday afternoon

Hold me tightly
Like never before
You've come to say your alive

The sun arrives
You wake and peek outside
Touch my hand and walk right away
I hear you close the door
I don't feel joy anymore
And my heart is racing to who knows where

And I say it's our last night
And clutch my soul so tight
But I'll let go to have you again

One By One

Three
In my family say
"we've never been anywhere"

"To the left sea
Can we go please
We don't care we want to
Sit and stare at it"

Can we try
To hold up our head
Feel the power of the land that we trampled once 

Can we go
Where you go
We know you always need us behind

It's me it's me
Calling around looking for your reply
Let me tell you where the story
Can run to now

We came together
We will leave here one by one
Let's go on and remember
Where we've been

Aunt Inez
From Virginia she
Makes me feel like I could be president

Of all I see
And all I dream
In these eyes that have held so much punishment

When she laughs
I hold up my head
She makes me feel like I could walk on water now

Can she go
Where I go
I know I'll always need her behind

Desert Mountain Showdown

Robinn' Robin in the tree
Won't you come down here and rescue me
Cause there's someplace else I gotta see
And you can stand in for me for awhile

Come on now hurry down
No time to play around
I need someone to walk this mile
She jumped and said like a child

Love is gone but now I see
You've got to capture me to set me free

Miss Mina came to me in a dream
She said, "boy come and walk with me
There's someplace I've got to see"
So we strolled along the mountain high

She called me boy my friend
And I wondered if or even when
I'd see Greta and my Rose again
The time has come for dealing

Lessons learned but now I see
You've got to capture me to set me free

I flew on the wings of a bird
And I whispered names of girls I once knew
Then she disappeared into a fallen stream

What's Going On Here

Do you see heaven
Like I do
Or is it just me
Wanting you

Tonight I'm special
Like no one else
I hope you need me
For yourself

Does it make you happy
To be so free
The times we shared
You loving me

And as you leave
And walk away
Your eyes they tell me
Someday you'll stay

What's going on here
What must we fear
To live in this fantasyland in your mind
Who'll carry the load
For dreams left untold
Can you live in this world all mine

I would walk this journey
To say goodbye
To have you close would
Make me high

All the good things
That made you see
It was the strong thing
Being with me

Just look high above
And you'll see where we should be
And if tomorrow makes
If tomorrow breaks us

Then you stand still and I'll
Show you me

Like you never knew
Or is it just me
Wanting you
So as you leave
And walk away
I knew you'd come back
Now let's play

What Do You Want From Me Now

Take a little bit of everything baby
I'll be all right
Don't just settle for living the lie
That I thought you might

Put on your disguise
Let me see that you're bigger than me
Tell me that tomorrow
I'll wake and yearn for you

And when I call your name out
You leave and take a bow
You say what do want from

Call off the service now baby
No one really knew
That I would have to leave
But now I'm a better man

I thought you realized
I wanted you but
You left so suddenly
I know I promised but now I lied

And when I kiss you someday
If you feel that your aloud
You say "what do you want from me now"

Burn all your candles
Turn out the light
Forget the feeling you've been feeling
Deep inside of me we'll be alright

Now it's the morning after
And I'm doing what you said
No one answers
So I cope cause you are gone
Oh I just wanted you baby
But I have to deal cause
My heart isn't big enough
To love you even if I please
And if I need you someday
You will not make a sound

Just think what do you want from me now

Closet Full Of Fear (untitled track)

Sunshine, I need a Francis fix
Cause I'm seeing you again no more
Whispering your name
And you smile, and you laugh aloud
Is this the way to make you happy now
Tell me are you looking down
Do you see us with a closet full of fear

Well, I notified all the necessary people
They made me make a scene
'cause they understand my dreams
And they criticize my life
So I look ahead to things in the window
To see what I used to see
The bottom of that old fruit tree
Where we sat to make our lies, and...

I'm so tired of your tomorrows
I'm just living with my own dread, I'm scared
Do you see us in a closet full of fear.
Now, I feel the way it does in the morning
When you see me leave again
Silence of my only friend
Helps to make me realize why...

I'm so tired of your tomorrows
I'm just living with my own dread, I'm scared
Do you see us with a closet full of fear
