I'LL BE GOING

I am a stowaway, running from yesterday

Don’t you give my name away tonight

Haven’t made it far enough and I’ve still got some road to rough

So sweep me underneath your rug ‘til light

Well there’s a warm wind blowing and I’ll be going

 

I am a sorceress, lean into my warm caress

I can make you feel the best tonight

You won’t have to worry when all the saints go marching in

 

Baby I’ll be gone again by light

Well there’s a warm wind blowing and I’ll be going

 

And love can take you far, but lovers only ever break your heart

So gas, gas up your car, and go where no one tells you who you are

 

I am a wanderer and my hair is dirtier

Could you spare a comforter tonight

Have a little trust in me, I won’t steal your jewelry

I just need a place to sleep ‘til light

Oh there’s a warm wind blowing and I’ll be going

 

I am a pretty face, tell me how it’s gone to waste

Use me for your own escape tonight

You’re not too good to lie, oh you won’t ever see me cry

You’ll be just another guy by light

Well there’s a warm wind blowing and I’ll be going

 

And love can take you far, but lovers only ever break your heart

So gas, gas up your car, and go where no one tells you who you are

 

Oh who you are, oh who you are, oh who you are, who you are

 

I’m just a vagabond, learning how the road is long

No one misses if I’m gone tonight

I’m just a memory, if someone remembered me

Even my own ghost would leave by light

Well there’s a warm wind blowing and I’ll be going

 

SANTE AUGUST

Take me back to August when my heart felt so much younger

Since the tenth of every month hangs in the air like pending thunder

I’m reminded of your eyes, and how they separated mine

And for a moment all the birds where you and I

 

Never am I able to recreate the northern table

Where the flutter in my veins could not contain

And for the first time in my life, believe in love at first sight

And there will never be another that could tie

No there will never be another that could tie

 

Time it moves so quickly and my fear is that you’ll miss me

Or even worse, you’ve not begun to miss me yet

But every thought of mine is you dear and it’ll only be next New Year

And I’ll be fit to be with you for all the rest

 

But right now you’ve got more prospects and I understand the context

There’s a distance in our lives we can’t control

And if I were you then I’d be on my way out of the country

Chasing dreams and I can relate so I let you go

 

And I will be here waiting, growing up and also saving

Everything I have to give to give to you

All my time and all my passions and all my grungy hipster fashions

And we’ll be set to build one life out of two

 

And I can be your songbird and you’ll keep getting taller

And we’ll visit all the wonders of the world

And if you ever need a promise like the one I felt in August

Well I promise that I’ll always be your girl

Yes I promise that I’ll always be your girl

Well I promise that I’ll always be your girl

REAL GOOD LOVE

I see your gazing eyes, hey are you thinking twice

Well baby I’m not jumping in too fast but we’ve got something that could last

And if you wonder how, we’d ever really work out

Well if the universe has got you made for me then what will be babe, will be

 

And if you feel like everything is working against tomorrow

Like time and space and future places stealing what they borrowed

Well let’s just keep this easy babe, we’re making this more work than it should be

 

We could have a real good love

If you can take my coffee breath and

We could have a real good love

If my dad don’t scare you half to death and

We could have a real good love

See we don’t got that much to fear

Well we could have a real good love

 

I hear your cautious voice, as if you had a choice on

How your heart will take me in you can’t control directions of the wind

And we don’t have to plan, beyond our summer tans

Until the leaves begin to change and we decide if maybe we should do the same

 

And if you feel like everything is working against tomorrow

Like traffic jams and your travel plans are stealing what they borrowed

Well let’s just keep this easy babe, we’re making this more work than it should be

 

We could have a real good love

If you don’t mind my crazy hair and

We could have a real good love

If you know how to say a prayer

We could have a real good love

If this is all we’ve got to fear

Well we could have a real good love

Yeah we could have a real good love

 

And if you’re still afraid, to give your heart away

Because of all the issues that you think you’ll find, please let me give some peace of mind

 

And if you feel like everything is working against tomorrow

Like shopping malls and your distance calls will steal all they can borrow

Well let’s just keep this easy babe, we’re making this more work than it should be

 

We could have a real good love

If you can take my coffee breath and

We could have a real good love

If my dad don’t scare you half to death and

We could have a real good love

See we don’t got that much to fear

Well we could have a real good love

 

We could have a real good love

If you don’t mind my crazy hair and

We could have a real good love

If you know how to say a prayer

We could have a real good love

If this is all we’ve got to fear

Well we could have a real good love

Yeah we could have a real good love

Ohhh

We could have a real good love

DON'T BLAME ME

I wasn’t expecting, when you pulled my neck in

We were all connected, you had me infected

What was this gateway drug you had given me?

I couldn’t have seen it, please tell me you mean it

Can you feel my blood heat, I can hear your heartbeat

If this is just a dream than let me sleep

 

And if I wake and find you’re gone did I ever mean a thing to you

Do your lips just lead me on or are they speaking of the truth

I fall hard, I fall quickly

If I fall for you, please forgive me

But it’s your fault too

how could you blame me

 

I wasn’t expecting when you pulled my neck in

I had fantasized this, you’re full of surprises

I had no idea your heart agreed

 

Will there be a next time, you’ve got me perplexed I’m

Trying to understand it, I don’t think you planned it

If it’s all a dream than let me sleep

 

And if I wake and find you’re gone did I ever mean a thing to you

Do your lips just lead me on or are they speaking of the truth

I fall hard, I fall quickly

If I fall for you, please forgive me

But it’s your fault too

how could you blame me

 

And if I wake and find you’re gone did I ever mean a thing to you

Do your lips just lead me on or are they speaking of the truth

What if this was meant to be oh I wouldn’t want to miss our chance

I might have to set you free but right now I’ve got no other plans

I fall hard, I fall quickly

If I fall for you, would you fall with me

Cause you feel it too,

How could you blame me

 

TIME

I had a night with Father Time

He offered me a glass of wine

He makes a lonely girl feel fine

Till he’s gone, and he takes your days along

I used to live in a big home

A country farm with fields to roam

Now in this city I’m alone

Time moved on, and he took my days along

 

Don’t go spending all your days on change

Time runs out and nothing stays the same, anyway

 

I met a boy with long hair

But fall in love I do not dare

How I recall being left there

Last time I tried, well Time he lied

I didn’t know that it could end

I thought forever was my friend

But oh how Time likes to pretend

Days went by, and Time he lied

 

Don’t go spending all your days on change

Time runs out and nothing stays the same, anyway

 

Few hundred miles down the road

All my belongings in this load

I’ve got a distance yet to go

But I move slow

Well I know by the time I land

That I can look into these hands

And in the lines I’ll understand

Where it goes

Yes Time moved on, and he took my days along

 

MEDICINE MAN

Hey Mr. Medicine Man

There’s change in my purse, could you please read my hand

I’ve been wondering how long it’s gunna take

For a heart to finally heal from a break

And I’ve got a question to ask

If I paid you enough, could you bring back the past

Could I get another moment of his time

Could I change his mind?

 

Hey Mr. Medicine Man

Do you make a potion for giving a damn

Could we slip it in somebody’s drink

Cause he just doesn’t care what I think

And then I’ll take something for me

The strongest whatever to help me get free

From these chains that I keep on myself

Say, could you help?

 

Medicine Man looked me dead in my eyes, he said

Who do you think that I am child?

I am not your savior, I am not a God

And these things they work on their own time

You can’t erase them in a day

Can’t drink them away

 

Hey Mr. Medicine Man

I’m sorry for thinking that it’s in our hands

I guess someday I’ll find it myself

Thanks for the help
