Track Name: Without You
Feelin' mired, overtired
gonna stick it out 'til the end
Everybody knows the score
I'm still without you
Still without you

Flashing warm-hearted smiles
Singing old songs
Seeds of truth I cling to in a world that will forget and I'm still without you
Still without you
Still without you

Friday nights have come and gone each one I let it slip away
Still without you
Still without you

Everywhere we're gonna share a love that keeps us movin' on
Without you

Love's lost, say it's a waste but I'm never gonna throw it away
Love's lost, ball and chain, but I'm never gonna throw it away

We are love of amigos true
When we're blues
We're radiatin blues, food to keep us groovin deep in time
Deep in time

Left out in the cold a few blessed souls stayed right by my side
Still without you
Still without you

Everywhere we're gonna share a love that keeps us movin' on
Without you

Love's lost, say it's a waste but I'm never gonna throw it away
Love's lost, ball and chain, but I'm never gonna throw it away
Track Name: Rushing For the Gates
Rollin' 'way against the tide, searchin' for a fate (fate hides by your side)
While eyes and stealy stares, rise to take my place (take my place to fight)

Aimless souls and Sunday mimes, rushin' for the gates (I don't come in)
Makin' eyes and savin' lives, lives that turned away (For they will all win)

Yeah they're gone
Gone without a trace
'Cause they know
Heaven ain't the place

Crazy love is understood as well as all we know (anyone can know)
We can all state the facts official faces quote (quote the status quo)

Yeah they're gone
Gone without a trace
'Cause they know
Heaven ain't the place

You and I are just a pain of crossed up crazy fools (fools, are we all fools?)
You'll be here as long as I give to you my soul (so long as I try)

Think you're gonna need somebody (repeat this over and over)
Track Name: The Orphan Song
Goin' down Texas way, gonna leave in the mornin' and drive all day, oh yeah
Pack up everything I own, got no reason to stay since my baby's gone, oh no

Goin' down to
My old place of rest
My folks
I hardly ever knew
They died
Before I turned two
I've been
Waitin' for so long
Sometimes
I don't feel son strong
Like when
I's a young boy

But when I grow old...Oh lord

Make it light for me
Make it light for me

Goin' up to New York City, gonna leave this old town 'cause it don't look pretty no more
Sweet fine woman loves me every time, she gives me her love she never takes a dime, oh no

Goin' down to
My old place of rest
To my
Woman who loves me best
She knows
We can never be
'Cause I feel
Like I'm most at home
Under
Summer's warm soft dawn
Before
I must go on my way

And we make love...oh babe
Make it light and sweet
Make it light and sweet

Goin' up to Mirror Lake gonna leave in the mornin' and drive all day oh yeah
I don't care if I ever get there 'cause I'm havin' fun, gettin' to my destination

Goin' down to
My old place of rest
My friends
They will always yearn
Young friends
Slowly take their turn
Baptized
By the river clean
Sweet earth
Stars sky and trees
Fall down
Heal what we can't see

And when I return...oh Lord
Keep it like it is
Keep it like it is
Track Name: Sunny Old Day
Sunny Old Day
Wastin' all my time
Keepin' me away from where I need to be

Sunny old love
A blur on my mind
Sunny old day's bringin' tears to mine eyes

Ridin' high on the winds of June
Without your love there's nothin' to lose
Long lost dreams remain on a sunny old day

Lazy old sky
Driftin' on by
The face that I remember changed in time

Fool in the rain
Feelin' no pain
Hopin' the skies will part and bring it all back again

Sunny old day I'm out of my mind
All that's dear has already died
Long lost dreams remain on a sunny old day

Sunny old day I'm out of my mind
All that's dear has already died
Long lost dreams remain on a sunny old day
