Track Name: Near to You
You make me feel so good
Just where you’re standing
The way your eyes fall across a room
All words fail me
Draping your arm across the back of a chair we’re sharing

Just want to be
Just want to be
Near to you

The way that you occupy space
Leaning against a door frame
Riotous laughter all over your face
Self possessed, strong
Knocking my worry out when you say
“That ain’t nothin at all"

Just want to be
Just want to be
Near to you

And if, when, you go
I’ll be fine
Better for knowing you at all
We’ll all be better than fine
Don’t need a photograph or phonograph
I can just close my eyes
And remember
Being near to you

When I just want to be
Just want to be
Near to you

When I just want to be
When I just got to be
Near to you.
Track Name: Every Day
Every day, every day
That I wake and meet the sun
Strong of faith and full of grace
I will rise and be someone

Every night, every night
As I lay me down to sleep
A gentle heart and a grateful mind
And a love of life is all I keep

One kind word, one small touch
We don't require all that much
I have discovered
We just need each other

Every day, every day
Is an opportunity
So, every day, every day
I will bring the best of me

I will give the best of me.
Track Name: In the End
Why you want to be a bully,
when you can choose to love?

Wittholding kindness
when you know what it is to not have enough

Why be cold,
when we all thrive by a flame?

Oh, it’s easy to be down on everything, but…

I’m gonna choose love
I’m gonna choose to lift my neighbors up
I’m gonna give and give and give and give and give
as much as I can
because I believe, in the end, love wins.

I grew up closed, I grew up hard
Suspicious of anyone who opened up their heart
When you’ve been hurt, you throw up all those guards,
but I’m tearing 'em down 'cause life’s too short and I want to feel it all, so

I’m gonna choose love
I’m gonna choose to lift my rivals up
I’m gonna give and give and give and give
as much as I can
because I believe, in the end, love wins.

Hurt people hurt people hurt people hurt people -
I know.
And we all struggle even if we fight to not let it show.
And how I want to be patient and kind and giving
though I don’t have much,
but it don’t a cost a thing to choose to love.

So, I’m gonna choose love
I’m gonna choose to lift my brothers and sisters up
I’m gonna give and give and give and give and give
as much as I can stand
because I believe, in the end, love wins
I believe, in the end, love wins.

Don’t you know, in the end, love wins.
Track Name: Pleiades 7, Cassiopeia 5
Out here counting stars tonight
Pleiades, 7, Cassiopeia, 5

You so far away
Thousands of miles across the seas

I don’t know when i shall see you again,
but if you were to go outside and stand

Know we’re both standing in the same moonshine -
if the sky is clear where you are tonight.

And if it’s not?
Question not.
I’m still standing out here with you on my mind.
I’m still lying here with you on my mind.
I’m still living out here with you on my mind.

Out here counting stars tonight
Pleiades, 7, Cassiopeia, 5
Track Name: Julie
Why do I want you
You're so bad for me
Why can't I crave sugar, salt, nicotine
Some kind of upper or downer
Illicit or over the counter
Please?

Why do I feel you
You're so far away
And yet you weigh heavy on my mind
Most of the day
I try to drown your memory with whiskey
But it hasn't worked yet
Can't erase your breath on my neck

Saying"Julie"
Say it again, say it
"Julie"
Say it again, say it again

Why do you test me
Haven't I laid it all on the line
I made it clear what I want
Just waiting for you to make up your mind
To stop withholding and hold me
And come home to mine

But you want to call me, pissed,
In the middle of the night
I reckon you like knowing I'll pick up
Then toss and turn all night
It's reckless what you do and what you don't
Don't you see?
It's the undoing of me

When you breathe "Julie"
Say it again
"Julie"
Say it again, say it again

You say the life you're living ain't the life you want to lead
Well, tell yourself don’t just tell me
And when you make your mind up to stop settling,
I hope you sidle on over to me.

And breathe "Julie"
Say it again
"Julie"
Say it again, say it again
Track Name: Isn't It
Still have your picture in my phone, still read up on your sign
Still fall asleep with the soft of my thumb pressed to my mouth at night
Still wanna tell you everything that's good
And everything that ain't right
Just a bunch of home truths written out in my own handwriting

It's always going to be you, isn't it?
It's always going to be you, isn't it?
My one call when they read my rights/rites
Whether I'm in jail or at the end of this life
It's always going to be you, isn't it?

My wallet still carries your photo from when I was 13 years old
And I still listen to back to messages you left me ages ago
Still feel your laugh barreling through me like a freight train with a full load
When I'm trying to find something
To tether to me down to this world, since you've gone

It's always going to be you, isn't it?
It's always going to be you, isn't it?
My one call when they read my rights/rites
Whether I'm in jail or at the end of this life
It's always going to be you, isn't it?

That indent on your left hand's always gonna show
And every blue jay, red bird, yellow cab will feel like something more
Every old Coke sign when Billy's on the radio
Every bit of light on at Wiregrass Junction,
Every "that ain't nothin."

It's always going to be you, isn't it?
It's always going to be you, isn't it?
It is.
My one call when they read my rights/rites
Whether I'm in jail or at the end of this life
It's always going to be you, isn't it?
