Lyrics:Wheres the magic gone? Where did it run to? Never thought itd leave but Im left with an emptiness Wont you tell me where the magics gone Back when I was young it was all around Everywhere I looked it was there but now I blankly stare And I wonder where the magics gone Is there a reason why it was leaving? Did I stop believing? Oh could it be true? Now I just hope that one day itll come back And make everything new Maybe one day soon well be together again And the world will come alive right before my eyes Just like magic Oh sweet magic Yeah, this old magic That I once knew
Lyrics:Im waiting on the sun to rise, lift the shadows of the night Oh my darkness, youre a friend, a friend of mine Im waiting on the Spring to move, undo all that Winters do Turning death into life and old into new But this life has had its way And I know Im not the same But I long for who I was before the change Im waiting on my wounds to heal, ready for my heart to feel Surrender my sword and drop my shield Im waiting on the sun to rise, lift the shadows of the night Oh the darkness is no friend, no friend of mine Im waiting on the Spring to move, undo all that Winters do Turning death into life and old into new But this life has had its way And I know Im not the same But I long for who I was before the change Im waiting on my wounds to heal ready for my heart to feel And surrender my sword and drop my shield Everyone has me convinced That theres no escaping this And I better, yeah, I better get used to it So Im waiting on the sun to rise, lift the shadows of the night Oh the darkness is no friend, no friend of mine Yeah, the darkness is no friend, no friend of mine
Lyrics:The years almost over, Oh how quickly it moves The days are much shorter and the nights are colder Sleeping alone in a bed made for two It doesnt take much For things to look different Trees with no leaves, a hand with no ring Lifes always changing as each season passes But Ill take my time to enjoy whats left The cool morning air & early sunsets The bottle of wine that you bought but I wish you had kept Ill take my time to enjoy whats left I hardly remember Before winters frost Those warm summer nights, your hand in mine Walking for hours just to get lost But Im sure in no time This ice will melt away And flowers will bloom, the world will be new But its hard to imagine cause its so bitter today But Ill take my time to enjoy whats left The cool morning air & early sunsets The bottle of wine that you bought but I wish you had kept Ill take my time to enjoy whats left Yeah, Ill take my time to enjoy whats left Staying out late to try & forget How you could walk out on us & leave me a wreck Oh Ill take my time Yeah, Ill take my time to enjoy whats left
Lyrics:Its hard to sit still in a world that moves so fast Keep on pushing forward aint no time to catch my breath The battle for my attention the things that matter hardly win Im afraid itll be too late when I decide to let them in One day were here, oh the next day were gone Have just but a moment with this skin on Life is precious honey, sure theres work to do But Id gladly give all my time to you Often I wonder if this race Im running in Is only a desctraction from you in the end Cause Ive grown tired of chasing some distant finish line That weve all been told is worth the sacrifice Everyone keeps running like its what their born to do But for what real purpose, oh I havent got a clue When this gets old honey, you just need something new Id gladly give all my time to you Were all in such a hurry, wear it like a crown Rulers of our own kingdom forcing others to bow down But we werent meant for glory, no we werent made for praise Its a poison thatll kill us, no matter how good the taste Oh Ill never understand how liars always win And honest men pay the price when theyve been cheated Ive hardly got the answers in the search for truth But Id gladly give all my time to you Oh Ive hardly got the answers, honey, in the search for truth But Id gladly give all my time to you Oh Id gladly give all my time to you
Lyrics:It dont take much to bring me down But my heart dont hurt when youre around Stick around, stick around Your love keeps me walking on the clouds You make all the colors bright But when youre gone its black & white Stick around, stick around Everything looks better when youre in town Youre voice is like the sweetest song But theres no music when youre gone Stick around, stick around Youre the prettiest little song I ever found My feet cant help but start to dance When you & I are holding hands Stick around, stick around Im moving to the rhythm of your love without a doubt I dont do well being alone & its been said when you know, you know And when it comes to us I think its clear Folks can talk as much as they like, but theres no use in changing my mind I need you close, I need you here So Id like to ask if its alright Would you take my hand & be my bride And stick around, stick around You & I forever would surely make me proud Cause when we leave this life & earth behind Whoevers first to the other side Stick around, stick around Even death cant hold a love like ours down No death cant hold a love like ours down Even death cant hold a love like ours down
Lyrics:Sorrow holds the shovel digging in my soul The older Ive become the deeper that it goes This well is never empty, with every passing year The waters always rising, filling with my tears In this well I put to rest Every heartbreak, hurt, & loss till nothings left In this well, lay my troubles down From its depths is where my joy is found In this well Sorrow holds the shovel & its always been this way Used to terrify me but Im no longer afraid Ive come to recognize that the further sorrow digs The more sadness that I know, the more love I have to give In this well I put to rest Every heartbreak, hurt, & loss till nothings left In this well, lay my troubles down From its depths is where my joy is found In this well Sorrow holds the shovel, but its only for my good Cause if I had the choice to do its work I never would In this well I put to rest Every heartbreak, hurt, & loss till nothings left In this well, lay my troubles down From its depths is where my joy is found In this well I let go All sadness, pain, & anger Ive held close In this well, lay my troubles down From its depths is where my joy is found In this well
Lyrics:Im looking for something new Not sure what, hope to find it soon Not trying to complain but I could use a change Ive risked it all, Ive played it safe It dont matter the outcome stays the same Nothing lost, nothing gained I could just use a change A little up a little down A little lost a little found A little hope a little doubt I may be wrong but I want to believe The change is somewhere in between Drunk at a bar or singing in church Ive walked away from both feeling worse Disappointed and ashamed Man I could use a change Everyday theres someone new Whos trying to sell me their version of truth I dont buy a word they say But I could use the change A little up a little down A little lost a little found A little hope a little doubt I may be wrong but I want to believe The change is somewhere in between Maybe this too shall pass But Im losing interest fast Give me something that lasts Itll be clear one day Im sure Exactly what Ive been looking for Though I wont be there today I could still use a change A little up a little down A little lost a little found A little hope a little doubt A little in a little out A little love a little hate A little fear a little faith A little give a little take I may be wrong but I want to believe The change is somewhere in between The change is somewhere in between
Lyrics:Goddamn the man that Ive become Curse the breath inside my lungs Ive lost touch of where Im from Goddamn the man that Ive become The rock upon which I stand Ive chipped away & turn to sand Love remind me who I am The man I was who said I do Aint the one that sleeps next to you Im afraid Ive forgotten how To be the one you cant live without Time to time I get real scared Its hard to trust these vows weve shared Love remind me youll be there The man I see I dont recognize Im not myself, I dont know why Love be patient, oh love be kind I aint seen the sun for years Ill catch a glimpse but it disappears My friends they say its always here But I aint seen the sun for years The more that I stare at the sky The longer that it stays night Love remind me the sunll rise Oh love remind me the sun will rise

Lyrics:Story opens in a time of war Fane promise in a raging storm Sky rumbled and the rain did pour As it had on the day before She was born in a time of doubt Cloud broke and the sun shown down News traveled at the speed of sound Lay sleeping in a ward downtown And I feel so much better now And I feel so much better now With you around She was born in an age of fear Dust settled and the truth came clear Farther lifted from the atmosphere And all the worries seemed to disappear And I feel so much better now Nah nah nah nah nah nah Cause youre around Oh around Around
Lyrics:See where they sift on weekends / At a diner on the northside of town / She walks the floor / Those nights until four / Serving coffee, the bar's closed down / They start filing in at 2:30 AM / They stumble and fumble about / Seems out of place / A sad smile on her face / Cause on the inside she just wants to shout / The truckers in the diner all know her by name / Say since you've got sober this town ain't the same / Katharine don't fall off that wagon / Dragging your burden around / Sooner or later its bound to get better again / It can't get worse than it is for you now / She clocks out and walks home the long way / Stopping off at the all night five ten / Cigarettes, lottery tickets / Thinking someday my luck will come in / She comes home to a messy apartment / And a tall stack of overdue bills / She opens up the medicine cabinet / Takes a hard look at new sleeping pills / Looks in the mirror / And then looks away / And then hears herself say / Katharine don't fall of that wagon / Dragging your burden around / Sooner or later its bound to get better / It can't get no worse for you now / Katharine is 11 months sober / She's got sponsors and meetings and steps / She walks the line one day a time / She cries when she's all by herself / Thinks back to 11 months prior / Waking up behind the wheel of a car / Keys in her hand / She tried but she can't recall / Getting home from the bar / That day was a special occasion / Her only daughter was set to be wed / She talk a few shots / Got drunk and forgot / Spent the afternoon passed out in bed/ Mother and daughter haven't spoke since that day / She looks at that phone and wonders / What would I say /Katharine don't fall of that wagon / Dragging your burden around / Sooner or later its bound to get better / It can't get no worse for you now
Lyrics:Sam's an old blues singer / With a checkered history / Twenty minutes in the spotlight / Twenty years in infamy / The decades flew right past and left him drifting through the haze / Now he's heading the road a little ways / To an old familiar story in and old familiar keys / Crooked chords on rusty strings / and a borrowed melody / Its hard to tell the singer from the sad old song he plays / He's heading down the road a little ways / Sam's a little wiser / And longer in the tooth / His candle burned much brighter when he was in his youth / But he'll keep on moving to avoid the undertaker's gaze / He's heading the road a little ways / World is filled with empty bars / And late night caberet's / He's heading down the road a little ways.
Lyrics:Church bells rang out in the streets / For the men coming home from overseas / And our town breathed a sigh of relief / Like a curse had been lifted / Well we stand while we watch the parade / we ate popcorn and drank lemonade / With the sun on the faces / We played the streets of New England / I can see when he stepped of the bus / As he made his way over to us / He's not the same man as he was / Before he enlisted / And she stood over there alone in the door / And said "Mama dont cry anymore / Now that daddy's come home from the war / Everthing's gonna be different" / When the hot summer sun went down / Mama put on her green evening gown / They went out for a night on the town / The streets of New England
Lyrics:So it seems, I've made it to spring the air's gotten soft now with a warm breeze My baby lays bare, so still next to me but my eyes aren't sure what to make of her Am I just a fool to get old with no one and nothing to hold Don't leave me to lay in this hole I need a home again I can't fall asleep and waste it in a dream just give me some wine to slow me down She tells me to whisper more it takes her away but I can't breath that soft with nothing to say Chorus I need a home Chorus So baby please So baby please
Lyrics:Well, the finer things don't seem to come our way. Finer things don't seem to come our way. Long as we got you and me, we'll make it out OK. Finer things don't seem to come our way. Well, the money is gone before the bills are paid. Money is gone before the bills are paid. Money seems to spend a whole lot faster than it's made. Money is gone before the bills are paid. We got no need The finer things Fancy cars Diamond rings Expensive clothes Designer shoes Don't mean a thing If I don't have you. I'll stand beside you when the chips are down. Stand beside you when the chips are down. Hard times come, and hard times go; you know I'll stick around. Stand beside you when the chips are down. I'll tie your laces when your shoe's untied. Tie your laces when they've come untied. Always here to lend an ear; my arms are open wide. And I'll tie your laces when your shoe's untied. We got no need The finer things Fancy cars Diamond rings Expensive clothes Designer shoes Don't mean a thing If I don't have you. Don't mean a thing... ...if I don't have you.
Lyrics:lord i fear my days may soon be through the years etched in my face but how they flew in my final hours i will lay my worries down release them one by one till peace is found the lowliest of roads we all must walk alone but at the end a distant voice saying come on home so when my work is done i will lay these troubles down release them one by one till peace is found i'll sing out hallelujah a million times or more i'll sing out hallelujah i need you like i never did before why, oh why do we ever have to part and to the ones i've loved, you've always had my heart so when we meet again we'll have laid all troubles down released them one by one and peace was found

Lyrics:Try and sell your diamonds but it wont get ya half a dime Try and sell your diamonds but it wont get ya half a dime Try and rob the store, gotta pay them ol bills on time If you rob the store, gonna put you in the county jail If you rob the store, they gonna put you in the county jail Well youll look for, but I aint around to foot the bail So carry my bones, through roads unknown Take em out your pocket build yourself a home Gonna find a man, gonna suit you mighty fine Gonna find a man, gonna suit you mighty fine Well he talk real soft and he says he gonna treat you kind Hell build you a house, shinin with electric light Hell build you a house shinin mighty with electric light But it sure get cold when the sun look away at night When the night time comes and the bottle is close at hand When the moon come full and the bottle is close at a hand Theres a devil thats a-waitin in the body of a quiet man Hell beat ya bad, he gonna leave your body sore Your hair in his hands and your teeth on the bathroom floor Gonna leave that house and you aint comin back no more. So carry my bones, through roads unknown Take em out your pocket build yourself a home Carry my bones, through roads unknown Take em out your pocket build yourself a home
Lyrics:I've been searching for that lonesome tune The one I hear when I've been thinking about you The lover's theme that comes on strong But never lasts for long And I've been sounding notes in my despair Hoping that I might find you there But as each note fades, and they always do I have yet to find the strain And it makes me sing even more It makes me sing even more Silence taunts me from time to time In between that sighing rhythm and rhyme And in that quiet old refrain I start to sigh again Oh, the lies I have told myself Now I tell them to the wishing wells And the echoes answer me in song With my own melodies And it makes me sing even more It makes me sing even more O, my song it is the peacock's tail Proud as hell with heaven on its trail It calls to you in golds and blues But those feathers never flew Someday You'll sing just like the whipperwhill Someday, baby, you surely will And we'll throw our dirt against that wall And see what sticks and falls And it makes me sing even more It makes me sing even more
Lyrics:When General Jackson was riding in the wilderness, startled some of his own men, they shot and did not miss. Their mistaken bullets tore through his arm. And the men cried to themselves, "Good Lord, what have I done?" Then General Jackson was lying in a farm house bed, the doctor sawed his shoulder and they all wept when it bled. The General, he lay silently, as if he is made of clay, and he spoke not a word until they heard him say: Bury my elbow beneath the willow tree and keep your shovels handy for to bury me. Oh the fastest rider was sent to General Lee at once to tell him about Jackson's arm and all that had been done. Said Lee to the rider, "It is a fearful night, for Jackson has lost his left arm, but I have lost my right." Bury my elbow beneath the willow tree and keep your shovels handy for to bury me. Oh the farmers dug a little hole atop of a little hill. They buried General Jackson's arm and you can visit it there still. And when people go there, it's clear to one and all, it took a mighty Lord to break the Stonewall. Bury my elbow beneath the willow tree and keep your shovels handy for to bury me.
Lyrics:3am nothings working. Another lonely night at home. Why am I calling you this evening? I guess Im afraid to be alone. And I cant shake this wake and all I need is rest. Calling out your name with whiskey on my breath. Nothing to offer you but a sinners heart at best. Still youre my only one. I got this awful thing inside me. Where other people have a heart. And now its cracking at the ramparts. For the awful things that I have done.
Lyrics:In 1984 I was hospitalized for approaching perfection. Slowly screwing my way across Europe, they had to make a correction. Broken and smokin' where the infrared deer plunge in the digital snake. I tell you, they make it so you can't shake hands when they make your hands shake. I know you like to line dance, everything so democratic and cool, But baby there's no guidance when random rules. I know that a lot of what I say has been lifted off of men's room walls. Maybe I've crossed the wrong rivers and walked down all the wrong halls. But nothing can change the fact that we used to share a bed and that's why it scared me so when you turned to me and said: "Yeah, you look like someone Yeah you look like someone who up and left me low. Boy, you look like somene I used to know." I asked the painter why the roads are colored black. He said, "Steve, it's because people leave and no highway will bring them back." So if you don't want me I promise not to linger, But before I go I've gotta ask you, dear, about the tan line on your ring finger. No one should have two lives, now you know my middle names are wrong and right. Honey we've got two lives to give tonight
