"The Weight Of Lies"

"The Weight Of Lies"



Disappear from your home town
Go and find the people that you know
Show them all of your good parts
Leave town when the bad ones start to show

Go and wed a woman
A pretty girl that you never met
Make sure she knows you love her well
But don't make any other promises

The weight of lies will bring you down
And follow you to every town 'cause
Nothing happens here that doesn't happen there
So, when you run make sure you run
To something and not away from 'cause
Lies don't need an aeroplane to chase you anywhere

I once heard the worst thing a man can do is draw a hungry crowd
Tell everyone his name, pride, and confidence
But leaving out his doubts
I'm not sure I bought those words
When I was young I knew most everything
These words have never meant as much to anyone
As they now mean to me

The weight of lies will bring you down
And follow you to every town 'cause
Nothing happens here that doesn't happen there
So, when you run make sure you run
To something and not away from 'cause
Lies don't need an aeroplane to chase you down

The weight of lies will bring you down
And follow you to every town 'cause
Nothing happens here that doesn't happen there
So, when you run make sure you run
To something and not away from 'cause
Lies don't need an aeroplane to chase you anywhere

The weight of lies will bring you down
And follow you to every town 'cause
Nothing happens here that doesn't happen there
So when you run make sure you run
To something and not away from 'cause
Lies don't need an aeroplane to chase you down

"Those Green Eyes"

"Those Green Eyes"



Those green eyes, that black hair,
Made me a sucker, standing there,
At the remains of a high school football game,
And it don't do me any good to remember you.

In a world of tuxedos and red sequins,
The jealous girl said "that's an ugly dress,"
But that dress sure did the trick for me,
The picture in my mind is never hard to see.

Fire in the sky, fourth of July,
My heart turned cold as I watched her cry.
In her despair I nearly lost my mind,
It's like we started over a hundred thousand times.

But those green eyes, that pass me by.
I could not make her mine however hard I tried.
And I am lonely now, but I've got my memory
Those green eyes and that black hair, they set me free.

"Through My Prayers"

"Through My Prayers"



Hard to believe I won't see you again
We were just fighting when winter began
The coldness of our words competing with the wind from the north.

Still they make me shiver but in a very different way
The pages of the calendar kept turning away
I have some better words now but it's too late to say them to you.

My dream of all dreams and my hope of all hopes
Is only to tell you and make sure you know
How much I love you and how much I always did.

And yes I know you loved me, I can see it in your eyes
And it was in your struggle and it was in your mind
And it was in the smile you gave me when I was a kid

Feels like no one understands
And my only chance
To talk to you is through my prayers.
I only wanted to tell you I cared

Every night after and every day since,
I found myself crying when the memory hit.
Sometimes it knocks me down, sometimes I just put it away.

Down in my mind where I don't care to go
The pain of a lesson is letting me know
If you have love in your heart let it show while you can

Yes now I understand
But now my only chance
To talk to you is through my prayers.
I only wanted to tell you I cared.
I only wanted to tell you I cared.

"Tin Man"

"Tin Man"



you can't be like me
but be happy that you can't
I see pain but I don't feel it
I am like the old tin man

I'm as worn as a stone
I keep it steady as I can
I see pain but I don't feel it
I am like the old tin man

I miss it
I miss it (oh)
I miss that
feeling of feeling

I used to fill the sky around
with happiness and joy
I had news to give the wind
to keep my sails and heart employed

I felt people move around me
I felt loneliness and shame
back then everyday was different
now each moment is the same

I miss it
I miss it (oh)
I miss that feeling of feeling

I miss it
I miss it (oh)
I miss that feeling of feeling

the feeling of feeling

the wind upon my face
and caring what it brings this way
the feeling of feeling
these minutes pass away
and caring what I do with them
baby bring me life or something else

so it goes a man grows cold
some would say a man grows strong
they say life only grows short
I say the road only grows long

as long as there's a road
my feet will never touch the ground
if you won't give my heart back
I've no need to stick around

I miss it
I miss it (oh)
I miss that
feeling of feeling
the feeling of feeling
the feeling of feeling

"True Sadness"

"True Sadness"



You were a friend to me when my wheels were off the track
I know you say there is no need, but I intend to pay you back
When my mind was turning loose and all my thoughts were turning black
You shined a light on me and I intend to pay you back

When I was a child, I depended on a bottle
Full-grown I've been known to lean on a bottle
But you're the real deal in a world of imposters
And I've seen the program make men out of monsters

'Cause I still wake up shaken by dreams
And I hate to say it but the way it seems
Is that no one is fine
Take the time to peel a few layers and you will find
True sadness

Adam and Eve must have really done a number
On that garden when the apple was finished
Leaving behind them a den made of sadness
A damage that can't or won't be replenished

'Cause I still wake up shaken by dreams
And I hate to say it but the way it seems
Is that no one is fine
Take the time to peel a few layers and you will find
True sadness

Angela became a target
As soon as her beauty was seen
By young men who try to reduce her down
To a scene on an X rated screen

Is she not more than the curve of her hips?
Is she not more than the shine on her lips?
Does she not dream to sing and to live and to dance down her own path
Without being torn apart?
Does she not have a heart?

I cannot go on with this evil inside me
I step out my front door and I feel it surround me
Just know the kingdom of God is within you
Even though the battle is bound to continue

'Cause I still wake up shaken by dreams
And I hate to say it but the way it seems
Is that no one is fine
Take the time to peel a few layers and you will find
True sadness
True sadness
True true sadness

"Vanity"

"Vanity"




I've got something to say
But it's all vanity, it's all vanity
I found a tune I could play
But it's all vanity, it's all vanity

Call off the guards
Call off the search
Their heads are chopped off
They're running in circles
They're running in circles

I have a plan for the day
But it's all vanity, it's all vanity
I've got love pouring out of my veins
But it's all vanity, it's all vanity

Call off the guards
Call off the search
Their heads are chopped off
They're running in circles
They're running in circles
Running in circles
They're running in circles

I've got something to say
But it's all vanity, it's all vanity
I've got love pouring out of my veins
But it's all vanity, it's all vanity

"Walking For You"

"Walking For You"



Ain't got no money
But I've got time
I don't care about the sunshine
But I love to see you smile

So you say you're lonesome
Baby dry your eyes
Well there's a road to your door step
I'll be there by morning's light

But I don't have an answer
For when you ask me why
I know I love you baby like I know I never ever
Gonna let you ever say goodbye
Say goodbye, Say goodbye

I've got an old Ford pickup truck
I got a Cadillac
And I don't care how I get there
Transportation can't hold me back

But I don't have an answer
For when you ask me why
I know I love you baby like I know I never ever
Gonna let you ever say goodbye
Say goodbye, Say goodbye

Cause I've had bad lovers, yeah
That walked to my back door
I've wasted years walkin' for them gals
That's how I know you're worth walking for

So you say you're so in love
Well baby so am I
And I don't care if I'm on the road
I am always by your side

But I don't have an answer
When you ask me why
I know I love you baby like I know I never ever
Gonna let you ever say goodbye
Say goodbye, Say goodbye

"When I Drink"

"When I Drink"



When I drink
I say things I don't want to say
I do things I don't wanna do
I talk mean to you
But if I think
I just might get something out of this
My parents taught me to learn when I miss
Just do your best
Just do your best

It's the only way to keep that last bit of sanity
Maybe I don't have to be good but I can try to be
At least a little better than I've been so far

But when I drink
I hear things that aren't really there
I feel things when I shouldn't really care
Have fist fights with the air
But if I think about someone besides myself
I lived through the silver and the bell
With something to tell
Just do your best

It's the only way to keep that last bit of sanity
Maybe I don't have to be good but I can try to be
At least a little better than I've been so far

But when I drink
I spend the next morning in a haze
But we only get so many days
Now I have one less
Just do your best

It's the only way to keep that last bit of sanity
Maybe I don't have to be good but I can try to be
At least a little better than I've been so far
Oh, at least a little better than I've been so far

"Will You Return?"

"Will You Return?"



I open my door and here's what occurs.
A pretty little gal with pretty little curls.
Leans to the side, leans on my mind.

I don't want to live, but I sure don't want to die.
I'm stuttering again and tellin' her goodbye.
Oh m-m-my, Goodb-b-bye

Will you come again? It's hard to say.
I surely hope so.
Will you come again? It's hard to say.
I surely hope so.

She walks up to me with something more to say.
Then hello and goodbye I hope that you're okay.
Well I'm doing fine… I'm doing fine.

Will you come again? It's hard to say.
I surely hope so.
Will you come again? It's hard to say.
I surely hope so.

I wish you'd see yourself as beautiful as I see you
Why can't you see yourself as beautiful as I see you?

I open my door and this is what I see.
The hope inside a girl just looking back at me.
Ohh my… Goodbye…

Will you come again? It's hard to say.
I surely hope so.
And will you come again? It's hard to say.
I surely hope so.

"Winter In My Heart"

"Winter In My Heart"



It must be winter in my heart
There's nothing warm in there at all
I missed the summer and the spring
The floating yellow leaves of fall

A million colors fill my eyes
The roman candles and the stars
The calendar says July 4
But it's still winter in my heart

They say flowers bloom in spring
Red and golden, blue and pink
They say seasons turn in time
Theirs are changing, why won't mine?

It must be winter in my heart
There's nothing warm in there at all
I missed the summer and the spring
The floating yellow leaves of fall

The air in there is frigid cold
I don't know what the reasons are
The calendar says August 1
But it's still winter in my heart

They say flowers bloom in spring
Red and golden, blue and pink
They say seasons turn in time
Theirs are changing, why won't mine?

It must be winter in my heart
I don't know what the reasons are
It must be winter in my heart
