You Know that we’ve all been told, we’ve been living in a perfect world Times are changing, it’s our chance to finally make it work Seemed like the norm to be running never taking time Keeping the wheel turning for fear of falling out of line Just believe in yourself, and face it Know you’re not alone, we’ll make it Everybody’s got to just believe Same people been talking, preaching the ways of the world The promises and prophecies, all the words they just get blurred While we were searching for the truth in the burden, still everybody’s hurting We were looking way too far and searching far too wide Got to get all the focus off the colour on the outside Just believe in yourself, and face it Know you’re not alone, we’ll make it Everybody’s got to just believe For now we’re living in bardo, we were living in vain With the false sense of comfort, caught up in the fabric of the game Just believe in yourself, and face it Know you’re not alone, we’ll make it Everybody’s got to just believe Just believe in yourself, and face it Know you’re not alone, we’ll make it Everybody’s got to just believe

Sitting by the sea Margaritas, you and me You know there’s nowhere else I’d rather be You and I, so free Waiting for the clouds to drift And reveal the snowy mountain tips Watching the stars burn out and the tide roll in I can’t believe that it’s not a sin I’m my favourite me You’re your favourite you In the morning when we rise, watching all the birds...fly Rainbow feathers in the sky, singing songs of paradise Every morning dew, reminding me that holding you Is something I can’t live without, I’d die there ain’t no doubt I’m my favourite me You’re your favourite you Baybe baybe it’s plain to see that you and I were meant to be There’s nowhere in this world I’d rather be And baybe baybe, you and me hand in hand in harmony We’re living on the island, the one we’ve dreamt about from sea to sea Sitting by the sea, margaritas…you and me You know there’s nowhere else I’d rather be You and I, so free Every morning dew, reminding me that holding you Is something I can’t live without, I’d die there ain’t no doubt I’m my favourite me You’re your favourite you Baybe baybe it’s plain to see that you and I were meant to be There’s nowhere in this world I’d rather be And baybe baybe, you and me hand in hand in harmony We’re living on the island, the one we’ve dreamt about from sea to sea

Sitting alone, by the mad river Regret came callin’, so I invited him in To speak of the choices, the people and places And all of the sweet things that just might have been When misery came, shufflin’ through the trees… Laid down beside me, wearing only a grin Won’t somebody tell me, why my mind’s a volcano Spilling out questions that I’ve learned to burn Mad river magic Let that mad river flow Mad river magic Won’t you carry me home Then joy came a-blowin’, through the leaves by the river On the wings of the white dove, while the black hawk stood by Won’t somebody tell me, why my mind’s like a valley So deep and so hollow where my memories won’t grow There’s a tale that’s been told, ‘bout the mad rivers magic If you sit at the source, it can carry you home It breathes new life into living, washes pebbles and stones While the sun beams on the water, where the gold shines alone Mad river magic Let that mad river flow Mad river magic Won’t you carry me home Mad river magic Let that mad river flow Mad river magic Won’t you carry me home Mad river magic Won’t you carry me home

Clock strikes four, it’s another sleepless night Thoughts are running circles ‘round your mind Your hands are sweating and your heart’s beating out of time It’s a heavy load You don’t know how, the plans you made they fell apart Feeling alone, astray…can’t begin to start You’ve come undone but you’re not the only one It’s a heavy load Don’t let it slip away A strong will will guide you all the way Time’s a funny thing, you can’t stop, or reel it in Your mind is waning and you can’t let it go You marvel at the thought of seeing the world A gypsy heart is hard to hold Don’t let it slip away A strong will will guide you all the way Solo Ride a wave, get blessed in Pushkar Lake Drive from toe to heel, do the Tour de Lille Build a castle, a castle in the sand Shop the medina, stare down the guards Run from a bull, smoke dope in a coffee shop…Why not? Don’t let it slip away A strong will will guide you all the way Don’t let it slip away A strong will will guide you all the way

Your truth and my truth... they ain't the same truth..oh no No no no Your faith and my faith they ain't the same faith... oh no No no no Sometimes we have to be The change we want to see.. Even though it feels the same It ain't the same way anymore No no no..no no no Your skin and my skin they ain't the same skin.. oh no No no no Your fight and my fight they ain't the same fight ..oh no No no no Sometimes you have to give the love you need to live...even though it feels the same..it ain't the same way anymore..no no no no no no My heart...your heart...your heart..my heart It's time to move beyond the niche and dig deep into the heart of each We can't delay..no not another day.. No no no no no no no..no no no Your hope and my hope ..they're just the same hope.

What if the tables started turning What if the guns stopped killing What if the losers started winning What if fire stopped burning Energy shifts and matter crumbles The one thing that should keep us humble Everything Changes it’s the law of living It’s a natural process with or without consent Transform, Alter, and Modify No way to stop, no need to try Maybe for better, maybe for worse Nothing lasts forever all living things must die Time waits for no man No way to stop it, no need to try Time waits for no man All that’s living must die We’re holding on to what we think matters Even if it leaves us in tears and tatters We fear what could be…new and exciting Times will always change, we’re all only fleeting Solo Flow like you know there’ll be a new beginning Live every moment like you know you’re … winning Everything changes nothing ever stays the same That’s the nature of the way life gives and takes Time waits for no man No way to stop it, no need to try Time waits for no man All living things must die What if the dreamers start believing What if believers stop dreaming

You’re a gentle soul, turn all that’s metal into gold You feel the pain that others hold All their secrets that can’t be told I think I hold on tight, these feelings get me through the night No matter who lies by my side I’m always sleeping alone I’ll be there, to hold you in my arms Will you be there, to keep me strong And help me carry on I had a front row seat, to history but still repeat You soar so high then dig in deep I find the truth so hard to keep Will you be there, to hold me in your arms I’ll be there, to keep you strong And help you carry on You find the strength within your song The words I write help me fight the fight Up and down the waves you ride To clearly see the better side, the better side I’ll be there, to hold you in my arms Will you be there, to keep me strong Yes I’ll be there, to hold you in my arms I’ll be there to keep you strong and help you carry on…

Who would have thought there would come a time When holding you would be a crime We’ve been together each and every day I just can’t bear your touch being taken away The weeks and months, even years have gone Who knew how little we could thrive on When the needle drops on your favourite song I can swear I can hear your voice singing along A lovers scene on my tv screen A walk in the park, a call that’s heart to heart It’s just enough to make you feel It’s just enough to make you heal some It’s just enough to make your heart glow It’s just enough to make you whole We never minded spending time at home Knowing We’d be back on the road before long I miss it so, but what still remains Is how our souls are recalling every frame I can still feel you from across that room A true vibration burning through my womb A child's laughter ringing through the room Behind all the chatter while we try to Zoom Our pictures on the wall of our trips to the beach A hint of your perfume slightly out of reach It’s just enough to make you feel It’s just enough to make you heal some It’s just enough to make your heart glow It’s just enough to make you whole 2X It’s just enough to make you feel It’s just enough to make you heal some It’s just enough to make your heart glow It’s just enough to make you whole

I’ve got whiskey in the breast pocket of my shirt You’ve got a world of wonder in your eyes I can feel my ramblin’ bone, rattlin’ in my jeans You can’t tell me baybe, you ain’t itchin’ to leave We’ve been slippin’ in and out of time, if we hang out too long we’ll be walking the line. Plantin’ roots and playin’ house, that really ain’t our kind Full of wonder we wander, to see what we find CHORUS Whiskey and wonder keep us wild and limber Feelin’ alive, when life delivers So we take another hit for the road Our sailin’ shoes reload Whiskey and wonder these souls just can’t be sold solo Never found one place that satisfied Only found one face that gets me high No matter where we are, or baybe what we do With that look of wonder in your eyes of blue A little taste of whiskey always gets us through CHORUS still got that brown liquor in the breast pocket of your shirt Is that look of wonder still in my eyes Let’s rock that ramblin’ bone… 3X Whiskey and Wonder These souls just can’t be sold

My man left me for a brown-eyed girl I don’t believe it was true love, but a kind of mad love I’m sure And every time he lied he crucified my soul I tell you girl, no pleasure’s worth that pain Together you and I, are one and the same And no need to bother, trying to explain I lost my man to a green eyed girl I don’t believe it was true love, but a mad love I’m sure And every time he lied he crucified my soul Ya that’s right mama, the pleasure ain’t worth the pain No need to explain You and I girl, we’re one of the same Glitter & glow, gotta cut them strings and let him go Together you and i girl, we glitter & glow I asked a friend for a pill to kill the pain I said, I need to remove the parts of him that remain She said. He won’t break you, but he can try But it’s just another lesson learned, to fuel your fire He wants his name on that boulevard He’s a starfucker…He wants to be a rock & roll star Glitter & glow, gotta cut them strings and let that man go Together you and I girl, we glitter & glow Glitter & glow, gotta cut him loose and let him go Together you and I girl, we glitter & glow Twinkling light Sparkle and shine

The lights shine through this rain-drenched window My heart is blue in my undressed chest This room feels empty in this home-wrecked mess I don’t think, you’re ever coming back And I fear that my mind, my mind has cracked The banging in my head is filled with all the silent words you said I don’t want this, I don’t want you I don’t really know what I’m gonna do Just let me go, Just set me free All I ask of you is… Please please please…Let me be No matter what I did, no matter how I tried No matter what I said, nothing satisfied You never laid a hand, you never cursed a word Your loveless eyes they cried words I’d never heard I don’t want this, I don’t want you I don’t really know what I’m gonna do Just let me go, Just set me free All I ask of you is… Please please please…Let me be Please please please…Let me be
