Track Name: I Feel Ashamed
I am young as the rising sun and
Feel I’m dazed and I
Know the moon is dark and gone and
I Feel so ashamed . . .

Many years that I’ve been gone and
Left you here and I
Know you think what I done is wrong and I
Feel so ashamed . . .

The tracks I made in the mud are gone,
But the tracks I left on your hips are strong.

And the fading of memories and I
Feel ashamed and I
Know that you’re in my veins and
A burnin’ flame and I
Feel so ashamed and I know.
Track Name: Sweet Loraine
Help to pay the rent for our sweet Loraine
Help to pay the rent for our sweet Loraine
She lost her job and she’s short a hundred
Help her out and you won’t see her movin’

Livin’ on ramen, fried eggs and peanut butter
Wearin’ the jacket found layin’ on the corner
Loraine ain’t ready to be pulled back under
She’d made it so far but she’s lost her thunder

Help to pay the rent for our sweet Loraine
Help to pay the rent for our sweet Loraine
Luck it came for her but left soon after
Help her out and ya won’t see her leavin’

It’s getting cold out, too cold to be homeless
Meeting men who tell her she can stay with them
It’s no good you see, she’s got no mother
Or a soul to make sure that she’s looked after

Help to pay the rent for our sweet Loraine
Help to pay the rent for our sweet Loraine
Help to pay the rent for our sweet Loraine
Help to pay the rent for our sweet Loraine
Track Name: Blind Mama Audrey
“No faith in anything,
I don’t ask for dreams that thin,”
She said while swingin’
Her child she ain’t never seen.

Ooo “Seein’ fine ain’t everything,”
Ooo Audrey said, still whispering.

Mmm “You’re right,
Mama I’d like to see,
I’d like to have me
A golden pear of wings.”

Ooo “Seein’ fine ain’t everything,”
Ooo Audrey said, still whispering.

“Yes other things
Mean more to me,
Like warm skin,
Like runnin’ free.
The first day of Spring
The sun warms gently,
The sun warms gently.
Seein’ fine ain’t everything,
Seein’ fine ain’t everything,
Seein’ fine ain’t everything,”
Audrey said, still whispering.

Audrey said, still whispering.
Track Name: Up Into The Sky
Michael says that where he grew
There ain’t no night
Sun beatin’ hard
Begins to fright

Folks rode out
To the mountain pines
Where ran a little water
That felt alright

That’s where he took his mama
When she died
Ashes in a plastic bag
Up thru the pines

When he let her go now,
The ashes white,
Floatin’ down the water,
Lit up in the sky

Some say that when you,
When you die,
You see a light,
Begin to fly
Track Name: Memories
When I die I’ll fall so hard,
Remembering my memories.
Nothing to comfort my mind,
No guiding light waitin’ for me.

The fading of memories
Leaves me at ease.

Judgement won’t matter none,
With no angels nor guiding sun.
Many souls have cried and cried
Remembering their darkest nights.

The fading of memories
Leaves me at ease.
The fading of memories
Leaves me at ease.

The fading of memories
Leaves me at ease.
The fading of memories
Leaves me at ease.
Track Name: It Takes Courage
When, When I follow
My courageous path,
It leads me to you.

When I see you cryin’, I cry too.

When, When I follow
The black of your eyes,
I’m in an endless night.

When I see your fears, I worry too.

When, When I follow
The love that you hide,
It gives me my peace of mind.

When I see you smilin’, I smile too
Track Name: Lost Sunrise
For every desire denied,
Something sacred has died.
Whoah babe, what I want to know,
Is is there somethin' you haven't tried?

Come along, we'll have some fun,
Down on the tracks with a bottle of rum.
Oh babe, as the sun goes down,
The beat of your heart is a powerful drum.

Oh the colors in your hair
Are those of the sunrise,
And your eyes are a windy affair,

Often times are lost;
For the timid it's the cost.
Oh babe what I want to know
Is is there a line you haven't crossed?

Come along, we'll both get lost,
Up on the roof with the mornin' frost.
Oh babe, as the day goes on,
We’ll leave it all behind and both run off.

Do you think that love is a way we've won?
Do you think that love is a way we've won?
Do you think that love is a way we've won?
Track Name: The Bread Is Warm
The hunger rises but the bread is done.
But the bread is done, it feels so warm,
And tomorrow night we won’t be alone.

Dad is crossing the border, yes the border,
Through the mountain range.
He’s bringing stolen animals to trade.

Dad is riding on a stolen horse,
On a stolen horse,
A thin, white horse,
And we pray that he will get back safe.

If he’s home in the mornin’, in the mornin’,
No prayers in vain,
We’ll have food again,
Give him bread that we made.
Track Name: Tracks They Break
Tracks they break a runnin’ train
When the wheels separate. . .

I don’t want to fly away.
On the earth I’d rather stay. . .

I don’t want to,
I don’t want to fly away.

Hit the ground and run a race,
Hiding in the alley ways. . . .

I don’t want to,
I don’t want to fly away. . .

I don’t want to fly away
On the earth I’d rather stay.
Rather stay, rather stay,
On the earth I’d rather stay.
Track Name: Little Red Road
He died on a little red road. . .
No other place to go. . .

Ten years was runnin’ ‘round. . .
Never found a way out. . .
Track Name: Just A Woman
Why do you blame me for all your sorrows?
I am a woman who’s tryin’, you know.
I came from far, so far from my home.
My reasons for leavin’ for here are my own.

Oh babe, oh babe, how I cry,
Having left my baby behind.
Oh no, you don’t know me, I know,
But I am a good woman with a heavy soul.

Why do you blame me for all your sorrows?
I’m just a woman who’s trying like you.
I came from far, so far from my home.
My reasons for leaving for here are my own.
