    Save Another

    When I was born I was nine months old
    Already to old to be doing as I was told
    And they put me in clothes and they sent me to school
    Where you learn how to learn life's essential tools
    And all these seasons keep passing us by
    Another summer just slipped out the corner of our eye
    Summer just slipped out the corner of our eye

    Is this the season my darling we begin to understand
    That if you want light and if you want laughter
    Then give that to someone else

    Save another and you save yourself
    Save another and you save yourself
    Give what you want to someone else
    Save another and you save yourself

    You can move freely on the train but you can not get off
    And all the lines you've drawn you some day must cross
    And the world is with me wherever I go
    Lord you know l loved you so lord you know I loved you so

    But there's no savior here my darling
    We got to understand If you want love and if you want kindness
    Then give that to someone else

    Save another and you save yourself
    Save another and you save yourself
    Give what you want to someone else
    Save another and you save yourself

    There's no savior here my darling don't let them fool you
    There's no savior here my darling and no time to waste
    And there ain't no heaven above only right here and now in this place
    And there ain't no heaven above only right here and now in this place
    Save yourself don't let them fool you

    Save another and you save yourself
    Save another and you save yourself
    Give what you want to someone else
    Save another and you save yourself
    Save yourself
    Don't let them fool you
    Everything coming back to you
    Give what you want to someone else
    Save another and you save yourself
    Don't let them fool you
    Save another
    Everything coming back to you

    Another Drop of Rain

    I walked on forever
    I wore my feet out on this earth
    I don't know this fire that keeps me moving on
    But its been burning since my birth

    I have had thirst (2Xs)

    And the animals cross the plain
    And lovers crying out their lover's name
    And the junkies fill their vein
    In search of another drop of rain

    And all these unanswered questions
    Its hard to tell just what their worth
    I've searched for the answers from book to book
    And I've drank down every verse

    I have had thirst (2Xs)

    And the animals cross the plain
    And lovers crying out their lover's name
    And the junkies fill their vein
    In search of another drop of rain

    And people saying
    Keep your head above the water
    Keep your head above the water
    But you just going to dive right in (4xs)

    And the animals cross the plain
    And lovers crying out their lover's name
    And the junkies fill their vein
    In search of another drop of rain

    And the animals cross the plain
    And lovers crying out their lover's name
    And the junkies fill their vein
    In search of another drop of rain (4Xs)

    Keep Singing Your Song

    Keep singing your song singing your song
    Even after all the money is gone
    Your time is coming and it wont be long
    Keep singing your song keep singing your song
    Keep singing your song singing your song
    And make the music your own
    Sing it out loud wherever you roam
    Keep singing your song keep singing your song
    It won't make weak it won't make you strong
    All roads lead to home

    Everybody's going through changes
    But that's cause the world is turning
    Inside its burning and your yearning
    Let them sleeping dogs lie and let god play his games in the sky
    Ain't no use in wondering why just keep on moving on
    Keep singing your song keep singing your song

    Keep singing your song keep singing your song
    And make the melody your own
    When the load is heavy and the night seems long
    Keep singing your song keep singing your song
    It wont won't make you wright It won't make you wrong
    All roads lead to home

    Everybody's going through changes
    But that's cause the world is turning
    Inside it's burning and your yearning
    You're going to have fortunes won and lost
    But you gain from both and they have their cost
    You are never lost just keep on
    Everybody's going through changes
    But that's cause the world is turning
    Inside it's burning and your yearning for what you had all along
    Keep singing your song keep singing your song

    Worth the Fall

    Help me to understand
    The woman think so different then the man
    The woman doing so much more then she can
    So much more then she can and more then she should
    To much said and misunderstood
    I took but just a moment to catch my breath
    You took all your pride and all your shoes and you left

    You're some where beneath heaven and above stone
    We ain't even talking on the telephone
    If we don't call and if that was it and this is all
    I still say the rise was worth the fall

    Conversation turning
    And then you get that look in your eye
    Lightning crashing through some clear blue sky
    The woman see color when there's nothing there
    She'll take you in and she'll take you where
    Where you want to stay but you can't remain
    You even looked pretty in the pouring rain

    You're some where beneath heaven and above stone
    We ain't even talking on the telephone
    But the moon and the ocean dance
    And we wake up every morning and we take our chances
    If we don't call and if that was it and this is all
    I still say that the rise was worth the fall

    If we have this and nothing more and time is on to us
    I give you back to you little parts I'll keep the parts that went too deep
    All and all the rise was worth it (2xs)
    I'll probably call but if that was it and this is all
    I still say that the rise was worth the fall

    If that was it and this is all
    I still say that the rise was worth the fall

    Help me to understand the women think so different then the man

    Fill My Glass

    I woke up this morning to the sounds of a bad song
    Lying there watching my alarm
    Thinking where have all the songwriters gone
    Music got trapped inside a ring tone music got trapped

    Fill my glass fill my glass give me something to make the night last
    Not forever like a photograph
    Just long enough for me to kiss the past good bye

    And maybe the sun that shines only blinds your eyes
    And maybe the rain that falls is going to clear your mind
    And baby give me your glass and I'll give you mine
    Tonight were going to have a good time
    Good times (2xs)

    And you give me no less and I ask for no more
    I ain't even been keeping track of the score
    What you even trying to win for
    Your first but your last in reverse your going to get there
    Ain't no use in trying to get there fast
    Get there but there ain't no use in trying to get there fast

    Fill my glass fill my glass sometimes you just got to let the storm pass
    Don't be a victim of your circumstance
    Sometimes you just got to let the storm pass

    And maybe the sun that shines only blinds your eyes
    And maybe the rain that falls is going to clear your mind
    And baby give me your glass and I'll give you mine
    Tonight were going to have a good time
    Good times (3xs)

    And maybe the sun that shines only blinds your eyes
    And maybe the rain that falls is going to clear your mind
    And baby give me your heart and I'll give you mine
    And baby tonight were going to have a good time
    And maybe the sun that shines only blinds your eyes
    And maybe the rain that falls is going to clear your mind
    And baby give me your glass and I'll give you mine
    Tonight were going to have a good time good times (4Xs)

    Bartender come fill my cup go on and fill me
    Tonight give me just the good stuff
    I'll let you know it when we had enough
    Tonight give me just the good stuff
    Fill my glass fill my glass
    Give me something to make the night last
    Not forever like a photograph
    Just long enough for me to kiss the past good bye

    Good bye

    Want Me Now

    Looking back now at the choices I've made
    The choices I've made the choices I've made
    Oh the ways that I've paid the ways that I've paid for the choices I've made
    Who's going to want me now

    Come on feed me lord don't give me just any chord
    I want the one thats all in I hear the ocean calling
    On and on for as long as Im able I lay my cards down on the table
    For one more hand do you want me now

    Looking back now at the choices I've made
    The choices I've made the choices I've made
    Oh the daemons I've slayed
    The daemons I've slayed for the choices I've made
    Who's going to want me now

    Come on heed me lord nobody loves you more
    You be the one that shines in to this frame my minds in
    Don't give me just any chord I want the one thats all in
    I hear the ocean calling
    And the rooms turning as the walls perspire
    And these voices sound like some devils choir
    Coming through my amplifier saying who's going to want you

    Who's going to want you now (2xs)

    All my senses all my instincts
    Ten thousand lives tonight I've lived ten thousand lies tonight
    Ten thousand lives tonight
    And its going to be a little while until that morning light
    Be a little while until that mornings light

    Who's going to want you now (3xs)

    Looking back now at the choices I've made
    The choices I've made the choices I've made
    Oh the ways that I've paid
    The ways that I've paid for the choices I've made
    Who's going to want me now

    You Are Alive

    They'll always be a reason to be sad
    you only need one to be glad you are alive
    And that sun light on your face
    came light years through space just to get to you
    The ones we’ve lost along the way they live through us today be alive

    Be amazed by what you’re seeing the city lights are screaming
    Your senses reeling and the changing of the season
    Everywhere you look there is something to believe in
    When you’re feeling beaten don’t forget to breathe in
    Close your eyes and just give thanks you are alive (2xs)

    They'll always be a reason to be hateful
    You only need one to be grateful you are alive
    And that wind upon your skin
    Has been circling this whole world just to get to you
    And no one knows tomorrow but today you are alive

    Be amazed by what you’re seeing a little baby sleeping
    Whose care is in your keeping they’ll soon be repeating
    Everything they see so be something to believe in
    When you get so mad your seething don’t forget to breathe in
    Close your eyes and just give thanks you are alive (2xs)

    Be amazed right now you’ve got blood racing through your veins
    Be amazed you are water yet you burn fire
    Now open up your eyes (4xs)

    Be amazed by what you’re seeing the city lights are screaming
    Your senses reeling and the changing of the season
    Everywhere you look there is something to believe in
    When you’re feeling beaten don’t stop dreaming
    Be amazed right now you’ve got blood racing through your veins
    You are something to believe in when you are feeling beaten
    Don’t forget to breathe in
    Close your eyes and just give thanks you are alive (3xs)
    Every morning that you wake give thanks
    Just give thanks you are alive

    Just Can't Last

    I was a rock when you found me but you leave me like sand
    I think the last piece just went and slipped through your hand
    And I sipped through your hand down through the cracks in the floor
    We don't feel it you don't like my music no more

    We went too high too soon too strong too fast
    And that kind of loving just can't last
    We went too high too soon too strong too fast
    And that kind of loving just can't last

    I was like ice I feel like water
    I ain't my self it's like I'm spread out all over
    I was a man I feel like a child
    Always wanting what he don't instead of wanting what he has

    We went too high too soon too strong too fast
    And that kind of loving just can't last
    We went too high too soon too strong too fast
    And that kind of loving just can't last

    I was a rock when you found me but you leave me like sand
    I think the last piece of me just slipped out your hand

    Too high too soon too strong too fast
    And that kind of loving just can't last

    I was a man I feel like a child
    Always wanting what he don't instead of just wanting what he has

    We went too high too soon too strong too fast
    And that kind of loving just can't last
    Too high too soon too strong too fast
    And that kind of loving just can't last

    We went to high too soon too heavy too quick
    Ain't no use now girl we just too broke to fix
    Too high too soon too strong too fast
    And that kind of loving just can't last

    We went too high too soon too strong too fast
    And that kind of loving just can't last

    It Will Be

    I got some tears for your eyes
    And a memory for your smile
    I want your freedom of mind
    You know that we can take our time
    And they'll be no want for trying
    You are the bed that I lie in
    Even though there's no denying my love

    But it all comes down to one thing one thing we should know
    Wherever we think it's going surely it will go
    We got to light the way surely we can see
    That what ever we think it is girl surely it will be

    I got a feeling for this moment
    You're the inspiration on it
    In our hands is everywhere
    Only we can take us there

    It all comes down to one thing one thing we should know
    Wherever we think it's going surely it will go
    We got to light the way surely we can see
    That what ever we think it is girl surely it will be

    INSTRUMENTAL

    It all comes down to one thing one thing we should know
    Wherever we think it's going surely it will go
    We got to light the way surely we can see

    It all comes down to one thing one thing we should know
    Wherever we think it's going surely it will go
    You know we got to light the way surely we can see
    What ever we think it is girl surely it will be

    Woman and Wife

    My woman's got it bad with my wife
    My woman's got it bad with my wife
    And the one says to the other you ain't staying all night
    I better not see you in the morning's light
    I better not see you in the morning light
    And they use to be the best of friends
    But now its a war and it has no end
    And then they start to gang up on me
    And Im hanging from the limb of a tall tall tree
    Cutting me up like a knife
    My woman and my wife

    If they were a card in a deck of cards they'd both be a ace
    I'd be the king caught in the middle just trying to save his face
    I though that two would mean twice as much
    But they cancel out each other and I get no touch
    I was born to love they were born to fight
    My woman and my wife

    My woman's got it bad with my wife
    My woman's got it bad with my wife
    And I think I've come to a point in my life
    Where I just want to sleep strait through the night
    And it was never perfect
    But there was a time I thought it was worth it
    But now Im not so sure my clothes on the floor
    I can't get either one to do for me no more
    Causing all this strife
    My woman and my wife

    If they were a card in a deck of cards they'd both be an ace
    I'd be the king trapped in his castle just trying to save his face
    I though that two would mean twice as much
    But they cancel out each other and I get no touch
    I was born to love they were born to fight
    My woman and my wife

    INSTRUMENTAL

    If they were a card in a deck of cards they'd both be a ace
    I'd be the king caught in the middle just trying to save his face
    I though that two would mean twice as much
    But they cancel out each other and I get no touch
    I was born to love they were born to fight
    My woman and my wife

    Cutting me up like a knife my woman and my wife
    Making pure hell of my life my woman and my wife
