"The Ballad Of Love And Hate"

"The Ballad Of Love And Hate"



Love writes a letter and sends it to hate.
My vacation's ending. I'm coming home late.
The weather was fine and the ocean was great
And I can't wait to see you again.

Hate reads the letter and throws it away.
"No one here cares if you go or you stay.
I barely even noticed that you were away.
I'll see you or I won't, whatever."

Love sings a song as she sails through the sky.
The water looks bluer through her pretty eyes.
And everyone knows it whenever she flies,
And also when she comes down.

Hate keeps his head up and walks through the street.
Every stranger and drifter he greets.
And shakes hands with every loner he meets
With a serious look on his face.

Love arrives safely with suitcase in tow.
Carrying with her the good things we know.
A reason to live and a reason to grow.
To trust. To hold. To care.

Hate sits alone on the hood of his car.
Without much regard to the moon or the stars.
Lazily killing the last of a jar
Of the strongest stuff you can drink.

Love takes a taxi, a young man drives.
As soon as he sees her, hope fills his eyes.
But tears follow after, at the end of the ride,
'Cause he might never see her again.

Hate gets home lucky to still be alive.
He screams o'er the sidewalk and into the drive.
The clock in the kitchen says 2:55,
And the clock in the kitchen is slow.

Love has been waiting, patient and kind.
Just wanting a phone call or some kind of sign,
That the one that she cares for, who's out of his mind,
Will make it back safe to her arms.

Hate stumbles forward and leans in the door.
Weary head hung down, eyes to the floor.
He says "Love, I'm sorry", and she says, "What for?"
"I'm yours and that's it, whatever.
I should not have been gone for so long.
I'm yours and that's it, forever."

You're mine and that's it, forever.

"The Clearness Is Gone"

"The Clearness Is Gone"



Well your hair fell on me like I dreamt that it would
When I dreamt your hair was long
Through the linens a moment of clearness shown through
In a minute the clearness was gone

When to know what I should for my heart to rest
Doesn't meet with the actions I make
I will seek the approval of no one but you
In love for the changes I take

The first time we fell for it
We blamed it on youth
And now we get hell for it
And blame it on truth

Of mind, oh my
Of mind, oh my
Of mind, oh my

Well your hair fell on me like I dreamt that it would
When I dreamt that your hair was long
Through the linens a moment of clearness shown through
In a minute the clearness was gone

"The Day That Marvin Gaye Died"

"The Day That Marvin Gaye Died"



I think I dreamed you, again last night.
I hope wherever you are, things turned out right.
But it's never the same, when you lose and you gain.

I see the truth now
I see the truth now
I just want to hold you
I should have told you
We are in love
We are in...

You tan stomach; and that mole on your lip.
We coulda had it all in one time; if I didn't slip.
Trip on my words; and land on my heart.

I see the truth now
I see the truth now
I just want to hold you
I should have told you
We are in love
We are in...
We are in...
We are in...

The road can be cold
and it's always long.
The sermon I whisper these days
are the words to a song
Are you in the old town?
Are you buckled in?

It's not the same
Our lives are not the same
I still want to hold you
I should have told you
We are in love
We are in...

Love is on it's way
The dying wish of Marvin Gaye
Michelle I know you'll understand
The answers in your hands
The answers in your hands

"The Fall"

"The Fall"



Well bring me something new that I haven't felt before
Like messages of love and directions to your door
But please talk slowly, I don't hear good anymore
And we all fall down
And we all fall down

Don't die on me lady, only good things can come
To those who practice reason and recognize good fun
Your absence is the bullet and the past is your gun
And we all fall down
And we all fall down

She still doesn't answer though she knows shes done wrong
We buried the memories along with the songs
When she wakes up, I hope that we are gone
And we all fall down
And we all fall down

There's a visitor in black at my neighbors house
My neighbor says tomorrow the visitor says now
When he comes here please tell him that I'm out
And we all fall down
And we all fall down

"The Greatest Sum"

"The Greatest Sum"



This and who I used to be
don't matter much at all to me
The pit you dug to plant your feet's
a far cry from my destiny
Not even the clouds
Not even the past
Not even the hands of God
could hold me back from you

Dark and lonely is the ride
the devil always by my side
Though no match for what lies between
a thought of you, your trust for me
Not even the sun
A bullet from a gun
No nothing that this world could bring
Or anything someone could do
Could hold me back from you

No count of gold placed in my hand
the largest find, the greatest sum
Though some would say it'd easy our pain
we know that it can't be done
Not even the sun
Not even the clouds
Not even the past
No nothing that this world could bring
Or anything someone could do
Could hold me back from you
Could hold me back from you
Could hold me back from you

"The Lowering (A Sad Day In Greenvilletown)"

"The Lowering (A Sad Day In Greenvilletown)"



If I had known, your heart was down
That lonely day in Greenville town
Then I would have been more concerned
But later on I truly learned
How it can feel in every bone
To really see you're all alone

But I'll kiss your head
When death finds your bed
And you are gone

And if I had seen,the way it would be
I'd hushed your cries, when you came to me
If I could do what I did to you
The same to me that I would love for you to see
That I sleep with remorse
And regret hangs round my door...
For ever more.

If I had known the lowering tide
Was lowering with the way you felt inside
If I had known all hope was gone
A broken heart and a broken home
That pierced, my lover's past
And carved a lonely path...
For her to walk

So if ever someone one says to you,
Life isn't fair, get used to it
Then you should say 'Well it might be
If folks like you would let it be"

But I'll kiss your head
When death becomes my bed
And I am gone

"The New Love Song"

"The New Love Song"



Elegant and soft
Feminine as you ought
One with earth and one with God
Won't you please forgive me
Won't you please forgive me

As the daylight sinks
As I fail to stop and think
Once I cursed the things I've done
Won't you please forgive me
Won't you please forgive me

Young bride take my name
Burn the questions burn the shame
You don't have to live by them
Won't you please forgive them
Won't you please forgive them

Sleep well when the night time falls
Wait 'till morning when I call
Don't believe the bad you saw
Won't you please forgive them

Tenderness and grace
How you've come this place
However dangerous or safe
I'll find within you
I'll find within you

"The Once And Future Carpenter"

"The Once And Future Carpenter"



I ain't from Texas, but I made my way from Dallas
And I know the lonesome sound is following
I ain't a gambler, but I can recognize a hand
And when to hold, when queens are staring back at me
Once I was a carpenter, and man my hands were calloused
I could swing a metal mallet sure and straight
But I took to the highway, a poet young and hungry
And I left the timbers rotting where they lay

Forever I will move like the world that turns beneath me
And when I lose my direction I'll look up to the sky
And when the black cloak drags upon the ground
I'll be ready to surrender, and remember
We're all in this together
If I live the life I'm given, I won't be scared to die

And I don't come from Detroit, but her diesel motors pulled me
And I followed till I finally lost my way
And now I spend my days in search of a woman we call purpose
And if I ever pass back through her town I'll stay

Forever I will move like the world that turns beneath me
And when I lose my direction I'll look up to the sky
And when the black dress drags upon the ground
I'll be ready to surrender, and remember
We're all in this together
If I live the life I'm given, I won't be scared to die

And my life is but a coin, pulled from an empty pocket
Dropped into a slot with dreams of sevens close behind
Hope and fear go with it, and the moon and the sun go spinning
Like the numbers and the fruits before our eyes
Sometimes I hit, sometimes it robs me blind
Sometimes I hit, sometimes it robs me blind

Forever I will move like the world that turns beneath me
And when I lose my direction I'll look up to the sky
And when the black cloak drags upon the ground
I'll be ready to surrender, and remember
Well we're all in this together
If I live the life I'm given, I won't be scared to die

"The Perfect Space"

"The Perfect Space"



I wanna have friends that I can trust,
that love me for the man I've become not the man I was.
I wanna have friends that will let me be
all alone when being alone is all that I need.

I wanna fit in to the perfect space,
feel natural and safe in a volatile place.
And I wanna grow old without the pain,
give my body back to the earth and not complain.
Will you understand when I am too old of a man?
And will you forget when we have paid our debt
who did we borrow from? Who did we borrow from?

Okay part two now clear the house.
The party's over take the shouting and the people,
get out!

I have some business and a promise that I have to hold to.
I do not care what you assume or what the people told you.
Will you understand, when I am too old of a man?
Will you forget when we have paid our debts,
who did we borrow from? Who did borrow from?

I wanna have pride like my mother has,
And not like the kind in the bible that turns you bad.
And I wanna have friends that I can trust,
that love me for the man I've become and not the man that I was.

"The Traveling Song"

"The Traveling Song"



Well I guess if my daddy hadn't brought me up
Down a long dirt road in a pickup truck
I'd feel alright, 'neath the city lights
Couldn't leave the city lights it just ain't right

I was born out west of Cheyenne town
While my ma and pa was ramblin' 'round
I'm a rambler too, but I'm country bound
I'll travel till my country home is found
And I will travel
Yeah, I will travel
I will travel 'till my country home is found

Well a country song on the radio
Country star but what do you know
He's a city boy singin' country tunes
I'm a country boy with those city blues
So I will travel
Yeah I will travel
I will travel 'till my country home is found

Well Chestertown (lets go), Albany (lets go),
Neptune (lets go), Pittsburgh (let's go), Cleveland town (let's go)...

I've got the wheels to ride and the wheels to run,
Some say I got ramblin' in my blood
No pretty girl can slow me down
I'll travel 'till my country home is found
So I will travel
I will travel
I will travel till my country home is found
Yeah, I will travel
I will travel
I will travel 'till my country home is found
