Lyrics

Love's A Dog-cover

 

 

Open – When you’re in doubt, when you think no one understand what you’re talking about – when you don’t know, which road you should follow, what comes next or what door you should, open oh when you feel the ground closing, you’re overexposing, you gotta stay open, just when, just when you think that it’s hopeless you gotta stay focused and let your heart give in and open.  When you’re afraid, when you have no more faith in you left, you’d rather walk away, when you’re confused, had more advice than you ever asked for, just leave yourself open

Like A Woman Can – When we get there, seems like heaven, who will answer, who will we send – Sons and Daughter, we’re eternal, no beginning and there’s no end – lift your hands to the sky, let the fire in her eyes be seen – when all’s told, I won’t lie, I’m a woman worth equality – Nobody, nobody can feel like a woman can – Let me see it, oh that glorious day, you can’t hold me against my will – do you hear it, it is the human way so make it law no longer just a bill – cause I work hard, just as hard as the others, shout it hallelujah – I hear your mother cry and her mother cry too, this isn’t change, it is a revolution – Nobody, nobody can feel like a woman can

Bleeding Heart – You’re bleeding heart, in your hands – it’s been there a while you’re just now noticing – I wish I could help you – The way that you want me to – We all have our own bleeding heart to attend to – You’re bleeding heart, let it go – you feel like it’s hopeless, but you never know – I wish I could help you – The way that you want me to – We all have our own bleeding heart to mend

Love’s A Dog – Love’s a dog that wanders by in spite of all you’ve done to hide – finds the bone you left a year ago, when everything was just fine – Love’s a dog, it’s hungry, you’re the one to feed it, go on – give it a good steak, give it, lots of water – buy it a leash and a collar – And I can’t sleep, I keep myself awake, I don’t know if I can take it much (more) – Not one wink, I wish these lovesick dogs would get away – Love’s a dog and you’re the cat, you hate the dog, you kill the rat – All of that scratching, pacing, love won’t quit chasing you, what you gonna do

You Are So Beautiful – I searched for love, but I could not find it – I looked hard during the evening hours – I searched for peace, but I could not feel it – Nothing here, I can barely see but you – You are so beautiful, you are so beautiful – Sometimes you’ve gotta, just let go – Turn your face, admit, you don’t know – Some days you gotta, hang on, can you hang on, just hang on, it shows you how strong you are – You are so beautiful, you are so beautiful – (We are trying to do what’s right)

 

 Little Miracle (2010)

Little Miracle  This is not the end is not the end – And I hope and pray that everything will mend – Before you go to sleep at night oh look into the stars so bright and you shed your fears – This is not the end is not the end – And I hope and pray that everything will mend – Before you go to sleep at night oh look into the moon so bright and you shed your fears.

Lost and Found  I’ve been lost and I’ve found that when you get lost you don’t look down – but you look above, yeah you look ahead and you raise your hands to the sky instead – to the sky instead – when you run, when you try to hide, stop and shake the dust from inside and hold yourself like a little child and swing your legs from the front porch swing for a little while – for a little while – you don’t know who will wanna talk, who you’ll meet between now and then where your feet will walk – but you look above, yeah you look ahead, and you raise your hands to the sky instead – to the sky instead

American Child  After the war we’ll settle down – move out west buy a house in California – after the war we’ll leave this goddam town – find a job that pays you a whole lotta money – raise an American Child – born under a blanket of fear – raised without any kind of certainty – searching for anything real – raised in a so-called liberty – up another house for sale – how they gonna keep the dogs away – after it all we’ll figure it out – we’ll start a life there ain’t no one town better – raise an American Child

Anchor Down  I woke up today and I feel just like I do – a ship upon the ocean yeah I’d sail across the blue – and I’d die for you dear, yeah I’d sink like an anchor down – I’d jump over the edge and my body would never be found – I woke up today with my head shoved in the sand – I hear what you say but I still don’t understand – but I’d die for you honey yeah I’d fall like a soldier down – yeah I’d die for you honey and my body would never be found

Fruit of My Labor   I crossed the line through the Mexican border – no law and no order did I find – I dreamt all night as we rolled asunder- black clouds of thunder through the sky – the fruit that I pick will turn to gold in my pocket – my  heavenly crown put upon my head – my children will play beside a ripened orchard – the good lord above will do what he said- but you know what’s in store for an old migrant man – the fruit of my labor never ends up in my hands – and that coyote dropped me here and now I’m waiting on the corner – with just an old wooden cross in my right hand – how’s your family back in Mexico, I have a son and a daughter – gonna send them home some money just as soon as I can – but you know what’s in store for an old migrant man – the fruit of my labor never ends up in my hand – I dreamt that I died while the fruit had all ripened – that Florida sunshine on their skin – and I stood at the gate and I begged St. Peter to let me – go back and join in the harvesting – cause you know what’s in store for an old migrant man – the fruit of my labor never ends up in my hand

 

 

 

 

 

 

Days Like This  Days like this – yeah you look up at the sky above you – days like this, yeah you think about the ones that love you – and all I wanna do is live my life honestly – I just wanna wake up and see your face next to me – every regret I have I will go set it free- and it will be good for me – days like this – yeah you think about the ones that went before you – days like this – have you ever seen the sky it’s such a clear blue

The Greatest Story  This is the sad and lonely, this is the one and only la de da – this is the way we’re living, these are the things we’re given la de da – does it all come down to this, have you no one that you hold – does it all come down to this are we, the greatest story ever told – this is the sad and lonely, this is the one and only la de da – this is the changing seasons, this is my lack of reason la de da- does it all come down to this, have you no one that you hold – does it all come down to this are we, the greatest story ever told – this is the sad and lonely, this is the one and only la de da – this is my heart it’s breaking, look at my hands they’re shaking la de da
