Track Name: Lucky Stars
Lucky Stars

Little wing
when this world hits you hard
no matter where you are
count your lucky stars

Little tree
when it seems like you just can’t grow
dig a little farther down
and count your lucky stars

You know they’re
sparkling
twinkling
glimmering
shimmering
glistening
up there listening
you just count
count your lucky stars

Good times an dbad times
Happy and sad times
They’re up there shining
They’ll see you through

Little wing
when this world hits you hard
no matter where you are
count your lucky stars

Little tree
when it seems like you just can’t grow
dig a little farther down
and count your lucky stars

You know they’re
sparkling
twinkling
glimmering
shimmering
glistening
up there listening
you just count
count your lucky stars
Track Name: Barb Wire World
Barb Wire World

Barb wire world
barb wire world
Your bricks are climbing higher
and your buildings scrape the sky
will an eye for an eye
make your whole country blind

Barb wire world
barb wire world
There’s a young girl she’s with child
and she’s walking so defiant
will the tiny life inside
really help her to survive

Wound around
your nation’s streets
the shanties and the mansions
the razor knows no end
a defense of desperation

Barb wire world
barb wire world
There’s plenty of clothes for all
and there’s a hole in the wall
where the orphan babies fall
into Momma Rosie’s open arms

Wound around
your nation’s streets
the shanties and the mansions
the razor knows no end
a defense of desperation

Barb wire world …
Track Name: Lady of Saint Rose
Lady of Saint Rose

How many days
How many ways
How crazed must I remain
To break through the wall ?

Lying awake
Counting mistakes
Frame by frame waiting
To break through the wall

Sweet Lady of Saint Rose
Leave your light on for me
I’ve been lost out on your roads
Trying to set myself free

With the wind at your back
And a natural knack
Still you can’t run past
All the shit you’ve been through

With little reflection
You changed direction
Your inflection was all
I needed to hear

Sweet Lady of Saint Rose
Leave your light on for me
I’ve been lost out on your roads
Trying to set myself free
Track Name: Imogene
Imogene

I’ve been waiting all these years
Holding back these tears
This road I’m wandering
It’s a twisty winding trail

Ive been dusting off my prayers
Peeling back the layers
of the wouldas and the couldas
and the what I might have done

Imogene
Imogene
Won’t you
Let me back in
I need your
blessed medicine
Imogene

I’ve been moving in slow motion
since I swam in your blue ocean
Some days I’d like to stay
down on your sandy bottom

I’ve been tilting at the windmills
Scrubbing grubby windowsills
Dreaming of a world you and I may never know

Imogene
Imogene
Won’t you
Let me back in
I need your
blessed medicine
Imogene

I’ve been searching for direction
it’s nowhere to be found
the sun my trusty compass
is trapped behind the clouds

I’ve been spending so much time
Hoping we might find
Our way back to the place
with the sunshine on your face

Imogene
Imogene
Won’t you
Let me back in
I need your
blessed medicine
take my breath away
I need your
blessed medicine
Imogene
Track Name: Hell or High Water
Hell or High Water

Come Hell or High Water
Solid or shake ground
Come Hell or high water
Solid or shake ground

Ooh what a beautiful morning
Oh what a good day to die
Can’t you feel the glory
Rising in the tide
Hell or High water solid or shaky ground

Weather man says
you better pile those sand bags high
Weather woman says you better
Pile your sandbags high

Ooh what a beautiful morning
Oh what a good day to die
Can’t you feel the glory
Rising in the tide
Hell or High water solid or shaky ground

Prepare to meet your maker
Watch your life flash before your eyes
Prepare to meet your maker
Watch your life flash before your eyes

Ooh what a beautiful morning
Oh what a good day to die
Can’t you feel the glory
Rising in the tide
Hell or High water

Gospel call and response outro

Hell or High Water
I will stand my ground
Hell or High Water
I will not back down
Hell or High Water
Gather your people around
Hell or High Water
I will be homeward bound
Hell or High Water
The lost will soon be found
Track Name: Impossible Me
Impossible Me

Impossible me
improbable you
Where in the world
did I find you

I live in the clouds
you walk on the ground
who would I be without you

We walk in the country air
we raised our family there
the winds of changes blow
our two birds have flown

Impossible me
Improbable you
where in the world
did the time go

Impossible me
Improbable you
I know today is your birthday
I want to say happy birthday

We walk in the country air
we raised our family there
the winds of changes blow
our two birds have flown
Track Name: Wasted Time
Wasted Time

You’re sitting there watching the blades of grass grow
itchy leaves between your toes
contemplating the crime
of wasted time

You’re watching the cubes in your glass melt
remember how his icy stair felt
regurgitating the crime
of wasted time

and you want
to be sure
it was all meant to be
i the end it was more than a notion of love
and the days
go by
somedays there’s something to show
some days you can never get enough

The blur of the world from your train car
mind games only take you so far
participating in the crime
of wasted time

and you want to be sure
it was all meant to be
i the end it was more than a notion of love
and the days go by
somedays there’s something to show
some days you can never get enough
Track Name: Heaven is the Place (Emma Stone)
Heaven (Emma Stone)

Heaven is the place where the trees stand tall
the roots grow deep and the days go long
Rivers flow free like children running on the beach
and lovers under cover have a reason to believe

you know in your bones
and you taste it on your lips
ignorance is the opposite of this

slip into the wrinkle of the invisible wall
slide into the moment and your mind gets lost
the sun is shining but it’s raining and we’re bouncing in the clouds
all the girls are funny
all the girls are funny
all the girls are funny as Emma Stone

home is the place with that sparkle in your eye
and the smile on your face when I see me walking by
the wind dries your clothes and the dog licks your toes
there’s a cat on your lap and some flour in a sack

you forgot to go to work
cause you were having so much fun
now the clocks are turning backwards
so you won’t come undone

slip into the wrinkle of the invisible wall
slide into the moment and your mind gets lost
the sun is shining but it’s raining and we’re bouncing in the clouds
all the girls are funny
all the girls are funny
all the girls are funny as Emma Stone

Love is a blessing in its messiness
a noble blend of mysteriousness
Standing on the altar in your birthday dress
I can truly sense my religiousness

Take me down to the water
and sanctify my soul
anything to make my mind and body whole
Track Name: Evening Train
Evening Train

I hear you’re leaving on the evening train
I hear you’re leaving on the evening train
You’ve gone and packed your bags now
You’re standing on the platform
The station master calls your train
I see you pull away now
Our yesterdays are fading
I hear you’re leaving on the evening train

Your search for greener pasture
Can’t get there any faster
What could I do or say to make you stay
Outside the rain is falling
I wish I never saw your face

I hear you’re leaving on the evening train
I hear you’re leaving on the evening train
I hear you’re leaving
I hear you’re leaving
