Lisa's Song 03:25
Lisa’s Song You are going back to Richmond Too much time out on the road Me, I’m pushing to the sunset My course moves on, it doesn’t slow Give my, give my, give my regards to Lisa ‘Cause I can’t tell her on my own You can tell her that I say She’s the one who got away And if she wonders how I’ve been Tell her that I sing for her in every lonely bar that I play in Give my, give my, give my regards to Lisa ‘Cause I can’t tell her on my own Give my, give my, give my regards to Lisa When you find your way back home On and on I go A restless heart For another day In the air, my song Sends all my love From so far away Give my, give my - My regards to Lisa Give my, give my - My regards to Lisa Give my regards to Lisa

Alone in the City One more deceiver left me high and dry Asked me to free her then she told me goodbye One more dark shadow in the flickering light The rain doesn’t matter I’ll just stay here tonight One more night alone in the city Alone in the city She told me her story and I told her mine We shared some glory over burgundy wine She took all my lovin’ when I couldn’t say no Then took my heart down as low as it’d go One more night alone in the city Alone in the city Oh, never going to learn Never going to learn to take it slow Oh no, now I’m going to be Now I’m going to be all alone Bourbon is tasteless and my food is so bland Time drags along with a broke hour hand I knew not to love you, I knew not to start You left me dumbfounded with chains on my heart One more night alone in the city One more night alone in the city One more night alone in the city Alone in the city

Turn Around 04:02
Turn Around From where I stand I can see everything All of your secrets hidden no more From where you are On my horizon Shine like the angel that I knew before Oh, shine like the angel that I knew before How can I know What goes on inside you How could so much be left up to chance I want to be strong Protect you and hide you From all of the ills that tarnish our souls Oh, all of the ills that tarnish our souls Can we try to be forgiving Can we just pretend forgetting Turn around - let’s try this one more time It feels like loss of virtue Strike first so no one can hurt you Where is the love we used to know We can go on together Tonight can be forever Turn around, do not go

I Know Better How many times will you look right through me With your stare so far away Complications makin’ every day so gloomy I pour another shot to take away the sorrow Maybe the sun will shine tomorrow But I know I know better I hear your happy words in my memory I recall the roses on your cheeks Accusations only led to misery I’ll have another taste to take away the sorrow Maybe the sun will shine tomorrow There is no right to wrong, no worse or no better Our love just lingers like bad weather But I know, uh huh I know better, I do But I know, uh huh I know better Is today the day you notice me again Will you say hello before I do Conversation needs just one word to begin I’ll take another toke to take away the sorrow Maybe the sun will shine tomorrow But I know, uh huh I know better, I do But I know, uh huh I know better, I do I know better

Glory Never Comes All chewed up, spit out and hosed off of the sidewalk like a stain Dripping wet and laughing at the rain I’m so damn tired of all the memories that echo in my brain Flashing, fleeting, never still Missing, wishing for some time that went away from me too soon Like a breath upon a breeze Seeking sense, but nothing’s sensible to my eyes anymore Set aside a stone for me Sometimes it feels just like a dream How will I know when it’s over You are welcome for my wonder years Here in the dark There’s still a spark In my heart In my heart All in all, and with no time for doubt With all my heart and soul And sometimes without I heard the rhythm calling in the drums Marched off to glory, but Glory never comes, glory never comes Glory never comes, glory never comes Glory never comes, glory never comes Glory never comes, glory never comes

My Love is Yours I was reaching blindly Falling down, falling down, falling down Down to the bottom Baby, then you found me And saved me, saved me, saved me From myself I felt the fire of one night in your arms Perfect like never before How quickly you took my heart My love is yours Baby, won’t you stay with me And hold me, hold me, hold me Never let me go Baby, did you hear me Calling out, calling out, calling out Out from the dark, oh I could never replace your breath on my face All of my dreams are yours Never give back my heart My love is yours Feel the heat, never let me go Feel my heart, racing as we go You led me out of the dark My love is yours

In the Night’s White Noise Crawling through the night Starting fires and keeping souvenirs I’m on your trail I smell your smoke And I know you’re near I feel it in my bones I can hear you in the night’s white noise Transforming by day Just another face in the crowd You’re never far away A silent sapper Waiting to be loud I feel it in my bones I can hear you in the night’s white noise Foreshadowing your hand Telltale with your clues Broken silence in the undertone I will find you - and you will lose Crawling through the night Starting fires and keeping souvenirs But I’m on your trail And I breathe your smoke Do you know I’m near Do you feel it in your bones Do you hear me in the night’s white noise

Witching Well I was entranced when you said One more kiss and you could raise the dead Then I saw through clouded eyes A ghostly moon rise into the sky Oh, you wrapped me in your spell You made me a believer At the witching well Sleepless nights, endless days One more kiss and then it’s here I’ll stay ‘Cause you possess my very soul With promises of more rock and roll Oh, you’ve got me in your spell You made me a believer At the witching well Oh, you’ve got me in your spell (can’t you tell) You made me a believer At the witching well You made me a believer At the witching well

Unknown Call 03:53
Unknown Call Unknown call I don’t take all But I answered yours A forgotten voice Familiar in my ear The love that we had The good and the bad The memory made me smile There’s no turning back from love A second chance At lost romance A hope for love I want so much to know Your heart has changed You say it’s true That you knew I was the only one There’s no turning back from love Tenderness A closed-eye kiss And I’m on my own The misty night A mirror of my heart You played the same Cold hearted game Oh, if I’d only known There’s no turning back for love You just don’t recognize When true love holds you tightly Letting go, now that I know There’s no turning back for love

Highway of Shadows Where I go None can follow When I leave All the love that I’ve ever known will be left behind On a highway of shadows With no peace of mind Someday, son You’ll try to follow An on your chase You’ll find that the only road is the one you ride on your own On a highway of shadows Some souls are born to roam A reflection of myself A better me than I ever was The nobleness of my soul Is in your heart You go alone And none can follow And all the love that you’ve ever known will be left behind On a highway of shadows In search of peace of mind On a highway of shadows In search of peace of mind
