Pardon Me 04:51
I fell into a puddle Laced with grass Not through with causing trouble Why would you ask? I held the shovel Swim out into a field To fill a grave Under the covers I will Sleep with the snake We danced in shady lanes Oh can you pardon me All the fires I lit are burning in the sea Oh can you set me free To save myself and honor this belief Been feeling suicidal Ain't that a shame It's everybody's bible We right the page And dim the lights for A selfish meditation It's all the same The fruit of being patient Is being lame I don't know nothing Oh can you pardon me All the fires I lit are burning in the sea Oh can you set me free To save myself and honor this belief Feeling like a dead man walking Talking when I shouldn't be talking Waiting on the world to punish me Look into you like my lover When I got no other brothers Hoping that your grin will pardon me I stumbled to the crossroads I held the stake Went with the partner I know We looked the same I did not know his name Put fires on the wheels And burning fast Stop talking hold the treasure It never lasts Till you're a goner Oh can you pardon me All the fires I lit are burning in the sea Oh can you set me free To save myself and honor this belief Feeling like a dead man walking Talking when I shouldn't be talking Waiting on the world to punish me Look into you like my lover When I got no other brothers Hoping that your grin will pardon me I don't know nothing

(I'm God, you God, we God, you know...) (I'm glad you know) Lo and behold... I met God Just the other day On a desert plane Waiting for the mass Sat right next to me In his white sox And purple sash He said "Son, don't you rag on me When you're yearning to be free Leave your baggage On the floor behind you." And then he looked into the sky "Don't you know the reason why Everybody's blue for a minute, yeah? Even when it seems unfair to be Violent to believe In the challenge you will learn To feel alive." Sing it out now Set me free, set me free Let me be what I was born to come to be Set me free, set me free Let me be what I would want to come to be In the race to the Golden Gate To the Golden Gate Lo and behold I was shown in due time Lo and behold Now I know the source of all my light Good sir matter fact It occurred to me Wrote a bedtime prayer For my destiny see Sometimes lately seems I been losing my faith I look back to the path Hope for some direction Peace with the past But I'm tired from testing When will I be free from all this pain He said "It's right in the night For you to question Work hard to see Then you learn the lesson All the dark energy Will fade in your light. It's an inside job That's right your journey Flow with the low And you will be learning Sift through all the smoke And the mirrors of your mind People try to look for me But it is the self that they are seeking Even God himself Was once just a man in the race To the golden gate Don't make me wait In the race to the Golden Gate Lo and behold I was shown in due time Lo and behold Now I know the source of all my light To find my light

I Need You 03:42
You’re fine like a wine But by no design Your spirit’s divine When it’s pouring over me I tell you one time Love of mine You are at the center of my life And it shows I just want to let you know How much I need you By humming a tune I got straight from you Singing of the sunshine of your soul That has shed so much light on me Through the darkest age The hallways of my mind You were there to hold me When my body was too tired Too weak to stand on my own feet Wishing you could help me I need you What can I do What can I say to you To let you know that My whole life has changed Because I know your name You're fine like a wine I tell you one time You are at the center of my life and it shows I just want to let you know

(LYRICS) Hang on Hold on me Stay strong Please don't leave Blood in your eye Demon disguised in wait I couldn't fight If I would run away In the dark corners of your mind In the dark of the midnight Stay here with me Hang on Hold on to me Stay strong Please don't leave Sweat on your brow Angels surrounding me Here with you now Stray from the sound of sleep In the dark corners of your mind In the dark of the midnight Stay here with me Stay here with me ... Holding you down Hoping aloud to pray Dew on your lips Dawning the light of day In the dark corners of your mind In the dark of the midnight In the dark tunnel I'm the light In the dark the end is near in sight If you stay here with me Stay here with me Stay ...

Glory 05:16
Passing ships in the night Flying far from the fight They don't know What they're missing Glory come and find me I'll be patiently waiting Paradise is a lie, it's alive Floating beyond the sky You won't know If you seek it Glory come and find me I'll be patiently waiting Glory come ignite me I'll be patiently waiting Patiently waiting Pacing Waiting here Ceasing daily the wise Sailing inward to die We have sought Our beginning Glory come and find me I'll be patiently waiting Glory come ignite me I'll be patiently waiting Patiently waiting Pacing Waiting here

Bayou 05:24
Way down in the bayou Where I got my name Way down in the bayou Where I got my name I been a lost, lost man In the forgotten sand of time And the good lord gone come And take me home Way down in the muck and the dirt Way down in the bayou Where I got my name Said I got my main, main name I been a lost, lost man In the forgotten sands of time And the good lord gone come And take me home 'Gon take me home To the land of snow With the clouds below He take me to the promised land Cause I been waiting so long Take me to the promised land Cause I been waiting so long In the bayou where I'm growing old Good lord gone come and take me home All my past regrets Demons sent From the darker side And they're with me When I ride All the angels sent From heaven's pen Would lay me down By the riverside Knowing that I been a lost, lost man In the forgotten sand of time And the good lord gone come And take me home 'Gon take me home To the land of snow With the clouds below He take me to the promised land Cause I been waiting so long He take me to the promised land Cause I been waiting so long In the bayou where I'm growing old Good lord gone come and take me home Way down Way down Down, down, down Where I got my name

Care 04:14
(LYRICS) How I wanted to protect you In truth I never had the right How I wanted to respect you But fell into a web of lies I pretend that you are mine But I didn’t need you, I didn’t need you, I didn’t care I wanted to feel it, wanted to see it, so I could be there But I didn’t need you, I didn’t need you, I didn’t care I didn’t care, I didn’t care … How I tried my best to love you But shadows don’t become the light Burning holes inside your mind Cause I didn’t need you, I didn’t need you, I didn’t care I wanted to feel it, wanted to see it, so I could be there But I didn’t need you, I didn’t need you, I didn’t care I didn’t care, I didn’t care … Care… I didn’t need you, I didn’t need you, I didn’t care I wanted to feel it, wanted to see it, so I could be there But I didn’t need you, I didn’t need you, I didn’t care I didn’t care, I didn’t care …

What if my fight was wrong What if I saw the sun And I was blinded What is the will to be strong Where was the time To move on When I was so Simple minded I don't know where this road gonna go But I like it Everyone wants to lighten their load So they try it And heaven don't deny it What if my sight was long What if I saw the cliff And went and jumped it What if it's in my mind What if I could decide I don't know where this road gonna go But I like it Everyone wants to lighten their load So they try it And heaven don't deny it

Tides 04:31
Watch the tides roll in Feel the summer wind Every morning when I wake up tired I could be yawning There’s a feeling welling up inside Calling me to jump in Got me singing ahh… Watch the clouds roll in Know the sun’s above them And every afternoon I sit outside It could be raining There’s a tear welling in my eye Telling me it’s sacred Got me singing ahh… The tides... Why must it be so hard Just to stay alive Just to be alive Why must I try so hard Just to survive Is this really life’s meaning? Watch the stars begin See the darkness dim Every evening when I’m cold and tired I’m getting older But the journeys in me have retired This weight upon my shoulders Got me singing ahh... Why must it be so hard Just to stay alive Just to be alive Why must I try so hard Just to survive Is this really life’s meaning? The tides...

Oh I know Where I should not go But I try to fight Freedom's race At a fatal pace So I run From the starting gun All my friends All my family Left behind In due time It's hard to see Where my fate will lead To my death My last breath Fallen leaves Won't let them bother me While I'm alive I was born to be A bit of everything Before I die Throw the fallen leaves aside Death's sweet call Like a waterfall But where does it end And who am I then? A memory A forgotten tree Before the fall And I hear the wind a calling Fallen leaves Won't let them bother me While I'm alive I was born to be A bit of everything Before I die Throw the fallen leaves aside An old back yard Overgrown and hard This is my grave I have been saved The man that was Is no longer cause I'm not the same I have been changed Fallen leaves Won't let them bother me While I'm alive I was born to be A bit of everything Before I die Throw the fallen leaves aside Gotta straighten my roots Live in the truth Or I will lose Gotta open my eyes Don't hold on too tight

Leaves and flowers blossoming Time again is here for spring And I feel it in the air Sun is peaking out her grin And I'm gonna soak it in Gonna get back to the light Spring is here again... Letting out the hate and pain Pent up in my heart and brain All the months amongst the gray Setting up a new intent Becoming everything I've meant Gonna truly manifest And if I do desire to I could walk another mile in these shoes I could change my path Make a break from my dark past If I want to Spring is here again... Why did I not see the way out Of the prison that I build Around myself My mind is too hard Too cold to be mine Can I just let it go? Spring is here again...
