Track Name: Like A Roll Of Thunder
You came into my life just like a roll of thunder
You waved at me your picket fence, your car, your silver spoon
And when I thought about all the things I had for the first time
I remembered that love is for the brave and for the free
That's how I want to be

And with the thunder came the rain
And so I picked myself up and pulled myself in again
And when I thought about all the ones I'd hurt for the first time
I remembered that love is for the brave and for the free
That's how I want to be

First the thunder and the rain then came the sun
And I stood on the banks and watched the rivers run
And there I thought about all the things I have for the first time
I remembered that love is for the brave and for the free
That's how I want to be
Track Name: One More Time
I don't need no-one to say that I'm alright, yeah
Take that colour of your money away I've got my feet on the ground
Cos I heard you say I'd lost my absolution
But, honey, you can't lose nothing that you never found

And I don't believe in innocence 'cos I left mine there too young
Time on my hands, it's slipping away, but I found you, Darling, found you one more time

Well, peace be to you brother
And to all the little people that live in your head
I've lived a thousand years in this body
I don't have the energy left for wishing you were dead
Sweet Jesus found me with a pocket full of nothing
But that don't mean that I should mean shit to you
Why don't you stop hanging around on my corner, boy
Go and find someone else to screw

And I don't believe in innocence 'cos I left mine there too young
Time on my hands, it's slipping away, but I found you, Darling, found you one more time

And I don't believe in innocence 'cos I left mine there too young
Time on my hands, it's slipping so fast, I don't know where the time's gone
Oh you are the anchor and I am the sea, so who's pulling away from who, boy?
Oh it ain't up to you no more, I told you I'm leaving and I'll tell you, Darlin, one more time
Track Name: Do You Love Me, Honey
I don't want to talk about things that you know
I just want to sit here for an hour or so
And wonder why the hell you have to leave
It's obvious that you're not coming back no more
And I blame myself 'cos I've smiled and ignored
What you mean to me and how I feel

I'll know you'll be so happy so I won't get in the way
But I'll yell from the rooftops the minute you drive away

Do you love me honey?
Do you feel the way I feel?
Would you crawl over nails every day, every night, just to be with me?
Do you dream of adventure and things which are strong and true?
Do you love me, honey, cos I think I love you

Yeah we've been friends for a while I guess
Rolled home laughing in a happy drunken mess
Walked for hours content sayin' nothing at all
I've been angry at you 'til it hurts my soul
And laughed 'til I cried at the stories you've told
And felt so safe by your side and stood so tall

Oh why is it so hard to put down these risky bets
When I know we go together like beer and cigarettes

Do you love me honey?
Do you feel the way I feel?
Would you crawl over nails every day, every night, just to be with me?
Do you dream of adventure and things which are strong and true?
Do you love me, honey, cos I think I love you

Last night was the end to our last fine day
Sun over the city sinking away
Birds flying home for the night just like you and me
The air was warm and the sky was red
The atmosphere as thick as a loaf of bread
And I danced around the words that I couldn't speak

So now I sit here staring at my hands
Such a stubborn idiot with one final chance

Do you love me honey?
Do you feel the way I feel?
Would you crawl over nails every day, every night, just to be with me?
Do you dream of adventure and things which are strong and true?
Do you love me, honey, cos I think I love you
Track Name: The Devil And My Daughter
The devil came 'round my house last night
With a gift upon his shoulder
He said, 'Good things come to those who wait but you know you're getting older.
So what are you going to do, my child, wait for the fine things to come?
Or are you going to go out hard tonight, fire all your guns?'

He said, 'Memory is a powerful thing but it only hurts you if you let it in.
You come and ride by my side tonight, I know you'll live again.'
Oh what a fool I've been
The devil came by disguised as love tonight and I let him in

Well he took me walking on the shore where the moonlight hits the ocean
And he talked to me with his serpents tongue about his love and devotion
The ocean waved at me and said, 'Girl, turn on your heel and run'
And then that devil man took me by the hand and said, 'It's time for me to have my fun'

He said, 'Memory is a powerful thing but it only hurts you if you let it in.
You come and ride by my side tonight, I know you'll live again.'
Oh what a fool I've been
The devil came by disguised as love tonight and I let him in

So many years passed since that day and now I have my daughter
She's more beautiful than I ever was that's why my heart grows colder
She's angry at her mother, 'cos I won't let her walk upon the shore
And I said, 'I don't want that devil man 'round my house no more'

I said, 'Memory is a powerful thing, it can save your life if you let it in
I went walking with that man that night and I never lived again
Oh, I know you're hurting but if that devil man comes by disguised as love tonight
I said if that devil man comes by disguised as love tonight
I said if that devil man comes by disguised as love tonight
Draw your curtain'
Track Name: I Guess You'll Never Know
I saw you talking to my sister
You were telling her how much you missed her
But I am a woman now, can't you see
Come out of the corner, boy, and make one out of me

For life it is an ocean that I've yet to sail
And love it is a mountain that I've yet to scale
So come with me, my darling
Or I guess you'll never know

I know you dream of me every night
I know you were wishing you could hold me tight
I know that you love me, I see it in your face
Come on, Darlin, take me now
There ain't no better place

For life it is an ocean that I've yet to sail
And love it is a mountain that I've yet to scale
So come with me, my darling
Or I guess you'll never know

I know you dream of me every night
I know you were wishing you could hold me tight
I know that you love me, I see it in your face
Come on, Darlin, take me now
There ain't no better place

For life it is an ocean that I've yet to sail
And love it is a mountain that I've yet to scale
So come with me, my darling
Or I guess you'll never know
Track Name: Cold-Hearted Lover
Hail stones pounding on the roof above
A hundred miles from nowhere by the flight of the dove
She crouches on the floor, she waits there in the dark
Waiting for her love she keeps safe from harm

She says, 'It ain't your love gonna tear me apart
cos I've got venom flowing straight to my heart
You better run just as fast as you can
You're a cold-hearted lover for a hot-blooded man'

Sugar cane was burning on the night that they met
Filling the air with the stench of regret
Sweet good loving on the rocks below
There's an angry moon rising where the spirits go

She says, 'It ain't your love gonna tear me apart
cos I've got venom flowing straight to my heart
You better run just as fast as you can
You're a cold-hearted lover for a hot-blooded man'
Track Name: That's All I Can Do
I spend a lot of my time walking the streets and thinking of you
I watch the Autumn leaves fall from the trees like honey and I kick them with my shoes
Go get a drink and when it's time to leave, pick my heart off the bar and put it back on my sleeve
And keep searching for some little pieces of you
That's all I can do

I'm getting drunk too often, I'm not seeing my friends
And I've got your name on a loop in my head, oh it never ends
I can't run from this, where would I go?
Too tired to keep moving and too restless to slow
I'll just finish this bottle and I'll decide what to do
That's all I can do

As the cold comes home and rests itself on my window sill
I wait for the dark to come, loyal to me still
And when I dream of you tonight we'll fly high together like birds in flight
For there's nothing I kept that reminds me of you
That's all I can do.
Track Name: Sinking Like A Stone
All these years I've known you deep
Heard your voice loud in my sleep
Smiled at you in my defeat
Though my heart is breaking
Saw you riding with her near
Saw you holding her so dear
But I've been laughing through my tears
Though my heart is breaking

Oh children can't you see I'm sinking like a stone
Going further deep, here I will sleep under the foam
He be walking fast, fast away and I'll forget his face one day
But until then here I will stay
Though my heart is breaking

The summer sings her memory song
Tells me of your moving on
But in your shadow I stand strong
Though my heart is breaking
I've never been in love before
Strong as this old oceans' roar
He waits not for me on the shore
Though my heart is breaking

Oh children can't you see I'm sinking like a stone
Going further deep, here I will sleep under the foam
He be walking fast, fast away and I'll forget his face one day
But until then here I will stay
Though my heart is breaking

The rise and falling of the tide
Rages in my head tonight
Regretful wrongs I cannot right
Though my heart is breaking
I'll see him there in front of me
Hear his voice loud on the sea
And I'll love him where 'er he be
Though my heart is breaking

Oh children can't you see I'm sinking like a stone
Going further deep, here I will sleep under the foam
He be walking fast, fast away and I'll forget his face one day
But until then here I will stay
Though my heart is breaking
Track Name: The Willow Tree
Where you going, those eyes so blue
Don't you know I'll follow you
Step down on that river sand
Hold a match soft in my hand
Oh, I've been bit by love's young spark
I'll wait for the fire to start

Carve your name into the willow tree
Here where you first kissed me
And then I'll carve my name there next to yours
A love heart 'round it, that bark so coarse
And sit here with a swollen heart
And wait for the fire to start

You breathed such truth and swallowed blind
All the things you left behind
And with your body pledged to me
To carve my name into the willow tree
Oh, my absent sweetheart, never will we part
I'll wait for the fire to start

And there against this gentle tree
Burning high as the eye can see
Throwing fire onto the sand
Match alight in my hand
Explosions scalding the river bed
Sweat on my skin lit with red
Black sky arching her fierce back
Breathing in flames then screaming them back

Oh sweet the sound of the willow's dance
Wind winding slowly through every branch
Gentle willow like my lover's hands
Standing tall in the muddy sands
Oh, I sit here with a swollen heart
And wait for the fire to start
Track Name: Ain't No Healer
I heard your voice from a mile away
It came through the floor into my feet and through my legs
And then it curled like a snake around my heart
Oh no love ain't no healer

I fell to my knees where I stood
And put my hands to my mouth
cos I know that nothing better ever came from anything good
Oh no love ain't no healer

I built those bridges and then I watched them burn
They lit up the sky line like a firework
And there you came with the materials to make them new again
Oh no love ain't no healer

Save me, Save me
Save me
Oh no love ain't no healer

So I'm sorry if I freaked you out
But you see I have nothing good to say if it's love I'm talking about
So I'm gonna curl like a snake around your heart
And tell you sweet darlin
Love ain't no healer
