UNFAITHFUL ONE
















Unfaithful one
You make me breathe
You’ve got the prettiest smile
And though I hate to leave
There’s a wide road calling
I might find my fortune there
And it’s going to make me cry

Unfaithful one
I knew you all the while
You really know my difference
Kiss me like a child
There’s a wide road calling
I might find my fortune there
And it’s going to make me cry

But when I get home
I’m gonna take you down
To a little county fair
Then I’ll walk you home

Unfaithful one
You’re with me all the time
You really make my difference
You really make me smile smile smile
There’s a wide road calling
I might find my fortune there...

My way with you is always unkind
And it’s going to make me cry

NEW GOLD BAND



All my life in the ground
Sun rolls up
Sun rolls down
Tonight you'll hear the fields singing
Come and join the band

Celebrate if you will
The New Gold Band
Celebrate if you will
The New Gold Band
There could be trouble out there
Might as well lend a hand
Celebrate if you will
The New Gold Band

Summer rain through our hands
Wind blows round the fields of sand
Tonight you'll hear the people singing
Come to hear the band

Celebrate if you will
The New Gold Band
Celebrate if you will
The New Gold Band
There could be trouble out there
Might as well lend a hand
Celebrate if you will
The New Gold Band

Like a hurricane a howling
Or the strings on this old guitar

Celebrate if you will
The New Gold Band
Celebrate if you will
The New Gold Band
There could be trouble out there
Might as well lend a hand
Celebrate if you will
The New Gold Band

WE ALL GET LOST SOMETIMES


That the hands of time
Would wind up late!
Heard you round the corner
Heard you lost your way
Lonesome Susie never read the signs
Every turn goes wrong
Road is long
We all get lost sometimes
We all get lost sometimes
Remind me

We walked down there before
Heads turned down
Trying every door
We put our hands around
Pretty Saro never was my kind
So every turn was wrong
Leading me on
We all get lost sometimes
We all get lost sometimes
Remind me

If you see me first
Gone from bad to to worse
Your light from me withdrawn
The sun will never come
Won't you keep on walking
Cause you're kind
Through that open door
That's what its for
We all get lost sometimes
We all get lost sometimes
We all get lost sometimes
Remind me

ALL RIVERS COLLIDE


Rain me some silver down by the river
Drifting forever, it's time to deliver
You could bring a sweater
It's gonna make you feel better
Forget the weather, rise up together
Say goodbye, don't tell the morning tide
Kick those dreams aside
All rivers collide

Dark the horizon, she dreams of water rising
Water on the radio, he turns to flip the lights on
Fumbling for the car keys, barking and the sirens
Say goodbye, don't tell the morning tide
Kick those dreams aside
All rivers collide

Put down your cereal
We're driving the Imperial
Nowhere to go
But we got the raw material
Gonna take a while
Gonna take a miracle
Say goodbye, don't tell the morning tide
Keep those dreams alive
I'm ready for the ride
All rivers collide…
For all our lives
Tonight

MAYBE I WANT YOU




When I was a child
Covers pulled up tight my only smile
I had my radio on
Had a vision bright
I could never hide
Unless you found me
With my radio
Transistor beaming
Maybe I could dial a dream
You know we're never what we seem

MAYBE I WANT YOU
YOU GOTTA WANT ME TOO
MAYBE I WANT YOU
YOU GOTTA WANT ME TOO 

Walk me through my days
Walk me home from school and never leave me
Without my radio on
Take me through the haze
You are all I need 
And all I wanted to
And my radio
City lights gleaming
Maybe I could dial a dream
You know you're never what you seem

MAYBE I WANT YOU
YOU GOTTA WANT ME TOO
MAYBE I WANT YOU
YOU GOTTA WANT ME TOO

Don't you realize
I belong to you, you'll never find me
Without my radio
You make the music right
Then you chill me through
Cause I can't find you
Without my  radio
Transistor beaming
Maybe I could dial your dreams
You know we're never what we seem

MAYBE I WANT YOU
YOU GOTTA WANT ME TOO
MAYBE I WANT YOU
YOU GOTTA WANT ME TOO

DREAM FOR DAYS


I remember you
You're my distant star
Deep into your blue
Close to where you are
I can hear your words
Can't you hear my song?
Deep into your blue
Back where we belong
Might be only sleeping
You can help me count the ways
Cause I can dream for days

I remember you
Walking through the rain
Across the fields of gold
Never back again
Maybe I'm still sleeping
You can help me count the ways
Cause I can dream for days
Hold on secret heart
Words that we could make ring true
Wish that I could start again with you

I remember you
Standing torn and frayed
Never let you go
Never be afraid
In my golden slumber
You can help me count the ways
Cause I can dream for….
Maybe were just sleeping
We can take it all the way
And we can dream for days

GRACE


It was Grace that I was named
On the day that I was born
And it's grace that's sure to lift me
When I fly
It was grace that You gave me
When I cold outside
In the darkest night
When I lose my sight
God has grace enough
To bring the morning light

In a world of temptation
Watch me turn to seek Your fire
It's for praise and devotion
I conspire
And the times when I grow weary
I'm walking on a wire
In darkest night
When I lose my sight
God has grace enough
To bring the morning light

It was Grace that I was named
On the day that I was born
And its grace that's sure to lift me
When I fly
It was grace that You gave me
Despite my foolish pride
In my heart You poured forgiveness
And my eyes were opened wide
With grace enough
To make the morning bright
God has grace enough
To bring the morning light
