(Bruce McCabe)

Clouds, one by one, fill the sky
Just like these tears that fill my eyes
I know by now she ain't comin' back
I watch my world slowly fade into black

Look out my window it's still rainin'
Look out my window it's still rainin'

They say that time heals everything
I've felt the pain that love can bring
It don't get no better with each passing day
Any hope I had is slowly slipping away

Look out my window, it's still rainin'
Look out my window, it's still rainin'

I thought the morning would rescue me
But the rain keeps falling endlessly, endlessly
Sometimes I wonder what'll become of me
There ain't much left of what I used to be
Her love shone on me like the morning light
Now here I am alone again tonight

Look out my window, it's still rainin'
Look out my window, it's still rainin'

. . .


(David Z, Bruce McCabe)

Second guessin' first impressions
There you go again
Rushing off in all directions
Since I don't know when
All day long you're building walls
You're building walls all day
Putting ceilings on your feelings
When they should fly away

Don't you think it's time you quit it
Don't you think it's time you admit it
Your heart is more worthy of trust
Than the thoughts in your mind that sit there gathering dust

Everything you're looking for
You'll know when it's real
You'll know when you've found it
By the way you feel

Writing down your deepest emotions
With your pen in hand
Your piece of paper flew out the window
You watched it try and land
You felt bad as it flew out of sight
A part of your heart alone in the night
All of a sudden you didn't mind it
When you pictured that lonely stranger that would find it

Everything you're looking for
You'll know when it's real
You'll know when you've found it
By the way you feel

. . .


(Prince, David Z, Levi Seacer, Jr.)

If being in love means waiting around
So you can dance with me
I am, I am
If being in love means follow the leader
Then this will have to be
I am, I am

I am, I am
Baby I am
So in love with you
I am, I am
Gonna get you baby
If it's the last thing I do

I used to think that a pretty face
Meant more than what was inside
I did, I did
If being a good man
means swallowing all my pride
I will, yes I will

Repeat chorus:

I am the one who loves you
I am the one who cares
You could fly me to the moon
If I would find you there
All the riches in this world mean nothing
Without you here
Whoever, whatever, however, whenever,
You need me I'm always here

Men killing their brothers
Nobody wants to go down alone
In this age of uncertainty

Love's worth more than gold
I'd sleep outside your window
If that would make you see
That I'm the only one for you
And you're the only one for me

. . .


(Jonny Lang, Kevin Bowe)

Every day I see your face I wish I'd stayed
Don't even know what made me run away
It's just the way I play the game

Emotional is not a word I'd use to explain myself
But now I'm down upon my knees
Baby please take me back

I don't want to be in love but you're makin' me
Let me up I've had enough. Girl you're breakin' me

Here I am just half a man standing alone
Feeling like I lost my only chance
At happiness when I let you go

I don't want to be alone thinkin' bout you girl
I got nothin' left to hold in this lonely world

Solo

The first time my heart was ever touched
Was the day I lost your love
I can feel it in my flesh and blood
My soul can only take it so much

So there it is. Why can't you give us one more try
You and I could find a way to live
If you let me in one more time

I know you lost your faith in me but I still believe
Can I make you understand, can I make you see
That I'm desperate for your love and it's breakin' me

It's breakin' me

. . .


(Paul Diethelm, Bruce McCabe)

The tar in the street starts to melt from the heat
And the sweats runnin' down from my hair
I walked 20 miles and I'm dragging my feet
And I'll walk 20 more I don't care

And I'll wander this world, wander this world
Wander this world, wander this world all alone

I'm like a ghost some people can't see
Others drive by and stare
A shadow that drifts by the side of the road
It's like I'm not even there

And I'll wander this world, wander this world
Wander this world, wander this world all alone

Well I've never been part of the game
The life that I live is my own
All that I know is that I was born
To wander this world all alone, all alone

Some people are born with their lives all laid out
And all their success is assured
Some people work hard all their lives for nothin'
They take it and don't say a word
They don't say a word

Sometimes it's like I don't even exist
Even God has lost track of my soul
Why else would he leave me out here like this
To wander this world all alone

And I'll wander this world, wander this world
Wander this world, wander this world all alone

. . .


(Jonny Lang, Jerry Lynn Williams)

You can cry
But don't cry for me
I can't take it no more
That's the way it must be

You can't lie
You're way back in
Back into my heart
I won't let it be broken again

I took a tumble
I started to stumble
That's when I fell

Into a love
A thought came from above
I was under your spell

The things that mattered
Were broken and shattered
One by one

I was so sad
But now I'm glad
It's over and over

There's just one more thing
That I want to say
I truly loved you
But now I'm walking away
I put no one above you
That's why I'm walking away

. . .


(Kevin Bowe)

I have been to Memphis but I couldn't find no peace
My soul is feeling restless and I need some relief
I'm heading for the Delta, see what I can find
I know the river holds the answers that'll ease my worried mind

Take me down to the levee where the women sing
Lay me down like an angel with a broken wing
Take me down to the levee where the river flows
Gon' throw my blues off the levee and let them go

Well, I have been to Natchez, been down to Baton Rouge
But the Delta keeps on callin' me no matter what I do

Chorus

Solo

I'm drivin' through the darkness, down Highway 61
Heading for the crossroads like the ones before me done

. . .


(Bruce McCabe, Michael Henderson)

Angel of mercy you don't need no golden wing
Angel of mercy you don't need no golden wing
The way you came to my rescue
Heaven must be watchin' over me

When the shadows fallin' and the day turns into night
I hear my angel callin' and I can't wait to see the light
Angel of mercy you don't need no golden wing
The way you came down to my rescue
Heaven must be watchin' over me

Sometimes I get a feelin' like a fever comin' over me
Just a touch of my angels hand and I'm right back on my feet

Angel of mercy you don't need no golden wing
The way you came down to my rescue
Heaven must be watchin' over me

Stay with me baby. Come down from the sky
Just like an angel. Take me to paradise

Angel of mercy you don't need no golden wing
The way you came down to my rescue
Heaven must be watchin' over me

. . .


(Jerry Lynn Williams, Danny Kortchmar)

Well you keep on talkin' bout it
Till you're stone cold blue in the face
But there ain't nothing darling
That true love can't replace

Yah, you're right, right back
Tryin' to pretend
Yah, you're right back, right back,
Doin' the same old thangs again

Well you're money hungry
And your heart is full of greed
Tellin' everybody you get everything you need

So you say

You're right, right back
Doin' the same old thang again

Yah for me it's the same old movie
Same movie just a different scene
Never meaning what you're sayin'
Never sayin' what you mean

Now you're right, right back
Trying to pretend
Yah I said, you're right, right back
Doin' the same old thang again

You're money hungry
And you're heart is full of greed
Tellin' everybody you get everything you need

You know it's a lie

And now you're right, right back
Tryin' to pretend
Doin' the same old thang again

Yah you're right, right back
Tryin' to pretend
Yah you're right, right back
Doin' the same old thangs again

Ahhhh

Right back
Right back
Right back

Now you're right, right back
Tryin' to pretend
Doin' the same old thang again
Right back, tryin' to pretend
Right back doin' the same old thang again
Right back
Right back

. . .


(Kevin Bowe, Jonny Lang)

I can't believe in what I've seen
I been forsaken. I been deceived
Cast aside and left behind
I can't believe my own eyes

I been waiting for the glory
Of the coming of the Lord
I heard a lot of stories
But all my prayers have been ignored
I been waiting in the wings
Between the ocean and the shore
But this time I'm leaving to stay
I'm walking away

I seen the red sky in the morning
I seen the low tide slipping away
I do believe I'll take warning
Taking my leave to stay

Chorus

Solo

Like an angel afraid to fly
Like the last lonely rose hung on the vine

. . .


(Kevin Bowe, Jonny Lang)

I seen every one of the faces you wear
Low, high and everything in between
Your eyes are fixed on the prize like a dead man's stare
Tick. tock. The hands on the clock don't care

Buzz is good
Feelin' fine
One of these days
You'll be out of time
God ain't gonna look for you
Down in the lost and found
You better look up or you're gonna be gone
Before you hit the ground

You'll keep dippin' in til the well run dry
Hope you don't get thirsty later
I know talking to you's just a waste of my time
I'm gonna stop tellin' you how to live your life

Chorus

Solo

One more. Time to score so make it fast
When you lose your mind you got no mind left to lose
Three, four open the door to your last chance
And when you get where you're goin' you won't be comin' back

You better look up or you're gonna be gone
Before you hit the ground

. . .


(Luther S. Allison)

Watching you baby
watching you all the time
Watching you
watching you all the time
Watching you destroy yourself
All you do is sit around drinking wine

You worry me baby
I'm sitting here wondering
wondering what in the world can I do
You're worrying me,
you're worrying me baby
Sitting here wondering
what in the world can I do
We've got so much to live for baby
But I can't do nothing but sit here
and watch that wine destroy you

That's wrong baby

I'm taking you to the doctor darling
Maybe the doctor knows
what's going on in your head
Maybe the doctor can help me baby
Maybe he knows
what's going on in your head
You see you're gonna keep on drinking that bad wine baby
Even the glass that grows on your grave will be cherry red
