Lyrics

Palest Rider 

Palest Rider breathes death in the night

Palest Rider on a ghost horse of white

Say he gonna take my life

Lord he wanna take my life

 

Coming down in my room all alone

Shadows killin the will of my soul

Baby you gotta know

Baby you gotta know

 

So lay me down by the river

‘Neath the straight so high

Allow my soul to float alone

Through heaven’s gate tonight

 

Palest Rider given what I owe

High as hell the hangman’s rope

As my blood turns cold

As my blood turns cold

 

No need for tears or cries of mercy

Let my body go before me

Heavenly joy I seek

Heavenly joy I seek

 

So lay me down by the river

‘Neath the straight so high

Allow my soul to float alone

Through heaven’s gate tonight

 

Grinding These Gears

You can’t be wise and in love at the same time
As true love has a habit of coming back
But you re a dream to me not reality it seems
Years and miles are killing what we had

When you listen to the sound of your heartache
And you re all out of love
I’m afraid I’m down to losing you
And we’re both all out of luck

Chorus: Time ticking away taking who I am
Time gonna leave us empty Time don’t give a damn
Still dreaming of you and fueling my fears
Another 7 damn years of grinding these gears

Have faith in me ….old love
My will is good so set your spirit free
From the shackles of time that feed on our minds
Dream your dream and your way back to me

 Bridge: No more twisted fate
Old love that went away
Let The moon fade away
with yesterday’s pain

 

 Forever Yours

Girl why you messing with my mind

One minute you’re cool

Next you’re cryin

We both know

You’re heart I’m a patient of

Cause I’m a fool

For your love

 

Fighting restless nights

And the days are tough

Wrap you’re arms around me

Cause darlin I’m praying praying my love will be enough

 

Babe you’re the angel in my dreams

Blind to my eyes

You’re all that I see

And you’re kiss

It’s like heaven in disguise

The trouble I’m in

Took me by surprise

 

Having a hard time baby

Girl you’ve been playing me for sure

But I’m here to tell you

I’d never walk out that door

My heart forever

Forever is yours Forever yours

 

 Vagabond

Trying to get over you

And right our wrongs

Hiding in shadows

Where we don’t belong

One day I’ll be strong

And I’ll be moving on

Slipping and sliding

Chorus:

Like a vagabond I’ll be moving on yeah…

Like a vagabond I’ll be moving on yeah…

 

When darkness is upon you

In your favorite color black

Lay there and take it

Or fight your way back

Don’t wanna get lost

Gotta be strong

At your expense

Chorus:

Like a vagabond I’ll be moving on yeah…

Like a vagabond I’ll be moving on yeah…

 

Dark Hearted Woman

Dark hearted woman

I can’t turn to you

Dark hearted woman

I can’t be your fool

All you do is break me down

Break me down

Break me down

When I try and love on you

 

Dark hearted woman

I am torn for you

Dark hearted woman

I still burn for you

Leave me in this misery

Misery

Misery

When I try and love on you

 

You keep me awake

In a way that I can’t bare

I hear you leaving

Out the hallway down the stairs

You’re a dark hearted woman

No mercy found for me

You’re so heavy on my heart

Now my soul can’t breathe

 

Dark hearted woman

Never coming back to me

Dark hearted woman

I can’t shake to break free

All you do is break me down

Break me down

Break me down

When I try and love on you

 

 Second Hand Man

I don’t wanna be your second hand man

The one you come crying to when your other man can’t

Time burns to ambers so believe what you can

I’d give my eyes only to be where we began

 

Dreams seem twisted now we fight till we’re damned

Cursing like enemies lost in Satan’s trap

My days have no reason restless through the night

Your beauty is the theme to the song inside my mind

 

Our hearts won’t leave alone what feelings we once had

Like two empty shadows left to withstand

Alone we die living together too far

Stained from a memory or death to each heart

 

I don’t wanna be your second hand man

The one you come crying to when your other man can’t

Time burns to ambers so believe what you can

I’d give my eyes only to be where we began

 

All the times you toy and leave I still want you back

I can’t sleep or even speak killing me fast

When did we stop loving crashing off the path

Into our lone memory of a life we once had

 

I don’t wanna be your second hand man

The one you come crying to when your other man can’t

Time burns to ambers so believe what you can

I’d give my eyes only to be where we began

I’d give my eyes only to be where we began

 

 Memphis Murder Blues

I’m standing on a dead end street

Darkest part of night

Waiting on a deal to break

This evil from my mind

I can’t lose

I can’t lose

It’s hard doin time (livin) with a crooked mind

Like a fool

Trying to murder these Memphis blues

 

Can’t cry no more to win you back

Your sorrows left behind

All these dreams your enemy

No kind words can you find

I can choose

What’s right

Your heart is blind to righteous vibes

Like a fool

Trying to murder these Memphis blues

 

Your soul can’t stand to have

Love to heal what’s blind

Got to keep on moving momma

It ain’t worth a waste of life

Ain’t worth a waste of life

 

Like a fool

Trying to murder these Memphis blues

 

 I Will Take Care Of You

The thought of what you and me could have
No matter where I am
I d come running to see you again
I could spend my whole life just loving you
Nothing’s ever gonna change the way I feel
Nothing’s ever gonna change the way I need you

I will take care of you
Sure as the sunrise baby
Give my heart up to you woman
I will take care of you

Tired of holding onto soon and maybe
Love sick
But never sick of you
Love don’t you keep me waiting….. Show yourself to me
Call on me to ease your pain… And to stop the rain

I will take care of you
Sure as the sunrise baby
Give my heart up to you woman
I will take care of you

 

You could spend your whole life running

Always chasing pleasure after pain

As long as you save your last dance for me now darling

Our love…. Will remain

 

 Coming Clean

She’s so fine it could hypnotize

Any man that gazed her way

And oh my eyes are paralyzed

When she loves me and looks my way

 

I can’t stay clean there’s no remedy

Drives my mind insane each day

But coming clean ain’t no heavy thing

When you’re loving me that way

 

And oh I say my love you are the one

I can’t leave or stay away

If I can’t hold you next to me

My heart will surely break

 

All those times you left me high and dry

I never wondered where you stayed

But coming clean ain’t no heavy thing

When you’re loving me that way

 

Ain’t it hard to love somebody

When they give all that you can take

It’s a messed up fuss to come undone

From an angel’s jealous face

 

So complete and deep this destiny

Nevermind what’s left to fate

I’ll follow you no matter who

Should say that I’m insane

 

Ain’t it hard to love somebody

When they give all that you can take

It’s a messed up fuss to come undone

From an angel’s jealous face

From an angel’s jealous face

 

The Struggle Is Real

The struggle is real
The struggle is real
The struggle is real
Inside of you and me
Like a lie you just can’t believe
Giving  up on everything
Drowning in all you see
Heavy eyes try to stare

Through darkness you can’t see the light
Fail at what you thought was right
Lord knows all the ways I’ve tried
Mama it’s a struggle out there
Drowning in a seasick heart
Love you wanna tear apart
A real mother for ya right from the start
…….. More than you can bare

From habits you can never beat
You’ve tried about everything
Working hard can’t get no sleep
Mama it’s a struggle out there

The sea is getting rough again
Always Run by the egos of men
Don’t give it all to the man instead
Awe… Don’tTry and tell me what’s fair

We walk into this battle blind
Seen heartbreak and a lot of hard times
Nothing left than to lose your mind
Mama … It’s a struggle out there

It’s a struggle out there

It’s a struggle out there

It’s a struggle out there

Empty Roads

Babe I’m going crazy, I can’t live this way

Heavy walls are breaking me, like my brain to cocaine

So may the daylight find you, as I fly away

Maybe down to Tennessee, to ease my troubled fate

 

I drove alone through midnight, December air was cold

Wore your favorite jacket baby, the leather one so old

All these distant reasons, small town’s not my place

The avenue seems crowded now, with blood I had to pay

 

(Chorus)

I couldn’t leave no money, cause I sold my soul to go

If you need a heart to bleed, find it in your soul

Please don’t pray forever baby cause angels burn out slow

Sleep and dream your vanities, don’t think of Empty Roads

 

This old song sounds familiar, the chorus needs a change

I hope next time I find you, caught up in a different place

As for me I’m leaving, heading down that Empty Road

Searching for another soul to lean on, drinking alone

 

(Chorus)

I couldn’t leave no money, cause I sold my soul to go

If you need a heart to bleed, find it in your soul

Please don’t pray forever baby cause angels burn out slow

Sleep and dream your vanities, Sleep and dream your vanities

Don’t think of Empty Roads

 

Fight Club

It was two long years ago when they tried to take away

Your life and reality as we knew it on that day

You were lying looking up at me with a tear in your eye

But like a lion in zion with the drive to provide and lead the pride

 

(Chorus)

Don’t let ’em take the fight out of you

Don’t let ’em take the fight out of you

 

We’re not living in the promise land where everything is fine

And your body and soul is one and there’s no fussin’ or a fightin’

But I’m drawing inspiration from your everyday life

Amazed at how life can be when your spirit is alive

 

(Chorus)

Don’t let ’em take the fight out of you

Don’t let ’em take away the things you love to do

Don’t let ’em take the fight out of you

Don’t let ’em take the fight out of you

 

(Chorus)

Don’t let em take the fight out of you

Don’t let em take away the things you love to do

Don’t let em take the fight out of you

Don’t let em take the fight out of you

 

Crazy Days

These crazy days

Your frantic ways

Leave me stumbling

Blessed is your ground

Two souls lost and found

My world is crumbling

 

Forced in your fun

Never paying for one

Your mystery I’m loving

Precious diamond rings

Pretentious limousines

Your style keeps me wandering

 

And when the sea gets rough

And one’s never enough

The fish keep on jumping

You know trying to keep up on you

Sure ain’t easy to do

But I still need your loving

 

Exile Blues

When you leave it won’t be long

‘Til my heart dies alone in this room

When you leave it all goes wrong

My soul is empty lord it’s true

You got me shaking in these shadows

Howlin’ at you with these Exile Blues

 

Used to rock me all night long

Ride upon my love woohoo

You used to rock me all night long

‘Til my brain would come undone woohoo

And you sting like morning whiskey

Stain me like a bad tattoo

 

Used to call me on the phone

‘Til my love was running home to you

Now you throw me to the road

Stray like a dog with the flu

You got me shaking in these shadows

Howlin’ at you with these exile Blues

 

To Youngstown

If you take my love To Youngstown

So we can be low key

Keep them bed sheets burning

In flames of ecstasy

 

Where dreams turn to heart break

Like a hurricane through me

Such a young girl fooled to learning

Abandoned free to leave

 

(Chorus)

I’m a stranger to Ohio

The back roads winding deep

Breathe your precious breath now

And all our secrets keep

 

If you take my love To Youngstown

Where the river never sleeps

Where country birds are singing

‘Neath the willows and the reeds

 

(Chorus)

I’m a stranger to Ohio

The back roads winding deep

Breathe your precious breath now

And all our secrets keep

And all our secrets keep

And all our secrets keep

 

Brother

Brother you just don’t get it

When you heart’s just in it to win it

And your soul is cold but alive is your pride

 

And brother you’re lost in illusion

Don’t resist helpful intrusion

When you stand alone lord knows there ain’t nowhere to hide

 

It gets lonely out on that island

Stars shine but you’re stuck behind them

Lonely thoughts get lost just floating in the wind

 

(Chorus)

Old pitfalls

Trapped in time

Deadly sin

Build your walls

As the tide

Rushes in

 

Darling see your smiling face

Burns through me like the devils embrace

Drank you wrong for so long just wringing myself dry

 

Darling keep on driving me wild

Hearts on Fire minds in denial

Keep me running running miles and miles

 

(Chorus)

Old pitfalls

Trapped in time

Deadly sin

Build your walls

As the tide

Rushes in

 

(Bridge)

Fear resides brother

Old ghosts never sleep

So don’t you lay down

Gotta keep on moving on to better things better things

 

(Chorus)

Old pitfalls

Trapped in time

Deadly sin

Build your walls

As the tide

Rushes in

 

Dizzy Eyes

Cigarettes on your breath, Darling I love you still

Wash it all away, With perfume and your pills

You’re lost and doing time, It’s a crime and a shame

Loneliness at night, Love without a trace

 

(Chorus)

Dizzy Eyes never lies they can’t hide the pain

Fever deep inside floating to your brain

Dizzy Eyes

 

When Jesus can not hear, The sorrows that surround

In the darkness come the devils, No angels can be found

 

(Chorus)

Dizzy Eyes never lies they can’t hide the pain

Fever deep inside floating to your brain

Dizzy Eyes

 

Years of buried truths, Hidden by disguise

Fears deep in root, A garden of lies resides

See I don’t want to wait, Racing in my mind

No other love but you, Can my body find

 

(Chorus)

Dizzy Eyes never lies they can’t hide the pain

Fever deep inside floating to your brain

Dizzy Eyes

 

Irony

Irony

These words indeed

Can’t express my love

These melodies

They ring in me

Laughing dancing high

Heaven moves inside of you

Lonesome alibi

Be your dreams reality

Floating through the sky

 

I love you now

For you a kiss

Open up your mind

And death to each

Sweet vanities

Blinding to my eyes

Scream out load

Your soul’s alive

Liberate to find

Buried truths deep in root

Love I have inside

 

So may the moon

Watch over you

Shining through dark night

Inspire things

To be and breathe

Blessings be your guide

Irony the Irony

Irony these words indeed

Irony the Irony

Irony these words indeed

Can’t express my love

 

Keep Love in Mind

If you Keep Love in Mind

Near beside not far behind

Your heart will – Go crazy

 

If you wake up to lies

That ruin down your life

Do you dig – What I mean

 

If you gamble on time

In a ghetto flying high

As these days – Die away

 

Bitter lips never part

Unadorned from the start

How they leave – Empty things

 

Sweet love don’t deny

This heart I have inside

As these dreams – Stray away

 

Don’t leave it all to find

All the loneliness in life

So just – Keep Love in Mind

 

Love Games

You have no shame in this love game

Darling now how can that be

Songs we sang yesterday

Fade like empty dreams

 

If all for simple nothings

We fell to each as ease

Feel your burning body

At a cost that kills complete

 

When evening brings darkness

Don’t shine no light shadows

The less I have the more I feel

Leaving all control

If time don’t make us crazy

We die a little in each breath, like emptiness of death

 

Two can play these love games

And when it ends darling it’s over

Distant hearts betray

Harmony is frayed

Distant hearts betray

And harmony is frayed

Harmony is frayed

 

Sniper

Screams for your submission

Remember an endless spring

This bitter world delivers

A summer’s quick fling

My soul is stained and tattered

My eyes are cold and dry

Waiting for the time – to say goodbye

 

We left in poor condition

We left it all behind

Dying for forgiveness

Giving up inside

My finger’s on the trigger

Your heart is on the line

Waiting for the time – to say goodbye

 

I got lucky in Kentucky

On my way to Tennessee

But the ghosts of Carolina

Just won’t let me be

I got my finger on the trigger

My eyes are cold and dry

Waiting for the time – to say goodbye

Waiting for the time – to say goodbye

Dying for the time – to say goodbye
