Let It Rain

I have given, I have given
And I got none
Still I'm driven by something I can't explain
It's not a cross, it is a choice
I cannot help but hear his voice
I only wish that I could listen without shame

Let it rain
Let it rain on me
Let it rain, oh let it rain
Let it rain on me

I have been a witness to the perfect crime
Wipe the grin off of my face to hide the blame
It isn't worth the tears you cry to have a perfect alibi
Now I'm beaten at the hands of my own game

Let it rain
Let it rain on me
Let it rain, oh let it rain
Let it rain on me

It isn't easy to be kind
With all these demons in my mind
I only hope one day I'll be free
I do my best not to complain
My face is dirty from the strain
I only hope one day I'll come clean

Rain
Let it rain on me
Let it rain, oh let it rain
Let it rain on me

Come take my hand
We can walk to the light
And without fear
We can see through the darkest night

Rain
Rain on me
Let it rain, oh let it rain
Let it rain on me

Sitting On Top of the World

Never seen a sky so blue
I've never been happy with anyone
Like I am when I'm with you, yeah
Look at the sun shining up in the sky
I feel a little closer to heaven, baby
When I'm looking into your eyes

And as long as we're together, boy
I'm sitting on top of the world
Wanna feel this way forever, boy
I'm sitting on top of the world

Last night I lay in the dark
Tryin' to figure it out
Tryin' to talk to my heart
But now it's morning and I still don't know why
All I know is that you got me feeling so good, baby
All I know is that it feels the way true love should
Ain't no one luckier than you and I

And as long as we're together, boy
I'm sitting on top of the world
Wanna feel this way forever, boy
I'm sitting on top of the world

Everybody's got an opinion 'bout how this should be
But they don't understand it
No, no they just can't see
That I belong with you and baby baby
Baby, you belong with me

And as long as we're together, boy
I'm sitting on top of the world
Wanna feel this way forever, boy
I'm sitting on top of the world, yeah
And as long as we're together boy
I'm sitting on top
Said I'm sitting on top
I'm sitting on top of the world, yeah yeah
Said my baby loves me boy
He is so good to me
I know he needs me cause
It feels so good to me
You know I'm never happy baby
Like I am when I'm with you

Birmingham

Virgil Spencer's got a nineteen-inch Hitachi
And many demons lingering
Friday night he pulled a gun to change the channel
Something that he picked up from the King
His wife remembers well the man she knew
Seems the dreams she had have all turned black and blue
She's wasted years
No time for tears

Cause there's another chance and someday soon
Shining like the Alabama moon
She's looking for her promised land
Out beyond the lights of
Birmingham

It's three a.m. and Virgil's passed out on the sofa
A fifth of Jim Beam on the floor
She's packed a bag she slips the keys out of his pocket
She's careful not to slam the door
And as she drives she rubs her rosary
She's never been so all alone she's never felt so free
She got miles to go
Blind faith and hope

Cause there's another chance and someday soon
Shining like the Alabama moon
She's looking for her promised land
Out beyond the lights of
Birmingham

As the rain falls down upon the interstate
Any doubts she had are all but washed away
One long look back
At Birmingham

Cause there's another chance and someday soon
Shining like the Alabama moon
She's looking for her promised land
Out beyond the lights of
Birmingham

Another chance and someday soon
Shining like the Alabama moon
She's looking for her promised land
Out beyond the lights of
Birmingham
Birmingham
Someday soon
Baby someday soon
Someday soon
Keep on trying
Keep on trying
Keep on trying I said

Last Exit to Eden

The walls are thin here in this motel room
Some fool is raging overhead
And he's preaching the gospel according to
Johnnie Walker Red
Four hundred miles talking to myself
Me and your memory end up here
I tell myself I'm gonna be alright
But it's still not clear

Did I just miss
The last exit to Eden
Is this the only love I'll know
Like a Judas kiss
Did my heart betray me
Back on the road I never chose

There are some sins that you can justify
But not the one I'm guilty of
I had a choice one last chance ago
But I turned my back on love

Did I just miss
The last exit to Eden
Is this the only love I'll know
Like a Judas kiss
Did my heart betray me
Back on the road I never chose

I can hear the man upstairs, he's crying out
"Fall on you knees, the end is near"
We both may need a savior, tonight I fear that mine
Is the one that I left waiting far from here

Did I just miss
The last exit to Eden
Is this the only love I'll know
Like a Judas kiss
Did my heart betray me
Back on the road I never chose

Did I just miss
The last exit to Eden
Is this the only love I'll know
Like a Judas kiss
Did my heart betray me
Back on the road I never chose

Did I just miss
The last exit to Eden
Did I just miss
My only way out of here
Did I just miss
The last exit to Eden
Did I just miss
My only way out

Fall From Grace

Lost inside this angeltown
Lost like I could not be found
No connections of the heart
Love was glass that broke apart
Give me faith in dreams
And someone to hold
Give me love 'cause I'm out here in the cold
There are no secrets
No angels at my door

And oh, when you touch my hand
I fall from grace
And oh, when you reach for me
I fall from grace

On a steeltown boulevard
Life's a promise that doesn't last
Resurrections of the past
Children come and are gone so fast
So give me faith in love
Baby tonight
Give me arms to hold you here so tight
There are no secrets
No angels at my door

And oh, when you touch my hand
I fall from grace
And oh, when you reach for me
I fall from grace
I fall from grace

And oh, when you touch my hand
I fall from grace
And oh, when you reach for me
I fall from grace
I fall from grace

And oh, when you touch my hand
I fall from grace
Oh, when you reach for me
I fall from grace
I fall from grace baby

Trust Me (This is Love)

I look at this mountain
So many heartaches wide
I can't help but wonder
Where's the other side
I've got to be honest
I've got my doubts
These tears are asking me
What's this got to do with love?
Baby, I'll tell you something
To help us through this long, dark night

When this trouble passes over
You and I will walk away
Knowing that our love survived
Another test of faith
You and I can walk on water
The river rises, we rise above
It may not look that way right now
But trust me, baby...this is love.

Love isn't easy
I'm torn, I confess
When a heart is uncertain
It's bound to second guess
This love won't forsake us
So dry your tears I promise you

When this trouble passes over
You and I will walk away
Knowing that our love survived
Another test of faith
You and I can walk on water
The river rises, we rise above
It may not look that way right now
But trust me, baby...this is love.

I'm here for you baby
There's nothing I want more
Our day is coming
And we'll reach that peaceful shore

When this trouble passes over
You and I will walk away
Knowing that our love survived
Another test of faith
You and I can walk on water
The river rises, we rise above
It may not look that way right now
But trust me, baby...this is love.

One more mountain
Hey so what
Trust me baby...this is love.
Oh yes it is baby
This is love

Dark Horse

Indian summer
Abilene
You were new in town
I was nineteen
And sparks flew
They called us crazy
Behind our backs
"Romantic fools"
We just let them laugh
Because we knew
May be a long shot
We may be lonely down the line
Love knows no reason
And I won't let them make up my mind

My money's riding on this dark horse, baby
My heart is sayin' it's the lucky one
And it's true color's gonna shine through someday
If we let this
Let this dark horse run

Stars are brighter
In a desert sky
No need to wonder
Or justify
Where this will lead
I wear your locket
Our picture's inside
Inscription says, "The joy's in the ride"
And I believe
Something so sacred
Is something worth this kind of fight
Cause love knows no patience, no
You can't please everyone all the time

My money's riding on this dark horse, baby
My heart is sayin' it's the lucky one
And it's true color's gonna shine through someday
If we let this
Let this dark horse run

So rare
So sweet
Together baby I know
We can be free, be free

My money's riding on this dark horse, baby
My heart is sayin' it's the lucky one
And it's true color's gonna shine through someday
If we let this
Let it baby

My money's riding on this dark horse, baby
My heart is sayin' it's the lucky one
And it's true color's gonna shine through someday
If we let this
Let this dark horse run

Indian summer
Abilene
You were new in town
I was nineteen
Yeah baby
In the summertime

Let's Get Lost

We've done our cold time, you and I
Fought off the raging of this northern sky
And heaven knows I wanna compare the ocean to your eyes
Baby, let's fly
Doin' hard time, day to day
Huddled beneath this winter sun all frozen grey
You lose your freedom while you watch the season slip away
But not today

Livin' in the darkness, baby
Comin' all undone
It's been a cruel December, now we're prayin' for the sun
By the time the storm rolls in, we could be long gone
Baby, let's get lost til the days get long
Just you and I

Frost on the outside brings a chill within
Seems like we hide our hearts away when the days get dim
Let's shake it off, let's shake it up
We're not the kind who just give in
So let's begin

Livin' in the darkness, baby
Comin' all undone
It's been a cruel December, now we're prayin' for the sun
By the time the storm rolls in, we could be long gone
Baby, let's get lost til the days get long

Voices in your head say stay
I can hear them too
Those doubts'll fade away
In our room with a view
There's a sweet breeze blowin' somewhere, baby
All you gotta do
Is tell me that it's time to go
And I'll be there with you

Livin' in the darkness, baby
Comin' all undone
It's been a cruel December, now we're prayin' for the sun
By the time the storm rolls in, we could be long gone
Baby, let's get lost til the days get long
Baby, let's get lost til the days get long
Just you and I
Baby you and I
Baby you and I
Just you and I

We've done our cold time
Baby let's fly
We've done our cold time
Let's fly
We've done our cold time
Baby let's fly

Beautiful Goodbye

Fed up with my destiny
And this place of no return
Think I'll take another day
And slowly watch it burn
It doesn't really matter how the time goes by
Cause I still remember you and I
And that beautiful goodbye

We staggered through these empty streets
Laughing arm in arm
The night had made a mess of me
Your confessions kept me warm
I don't really miss you, I just need to know
Do you ever think of you and I
And that beautiful goodbye

When I see you now
I wonder how
I could've watched you walk away
If I let you down
Please forgive me now
For that beautiful goodbye

In these days of no regrets
I keep mine to myself
And all the things we never said
I can say for someone else
And nothing lasts forever, but we always try
And I just can't help but wonder why
We let it pass us by

When I see you now
I wonder how
I could've watched you walk away
If I let you down
Please forgive me now
For that beautiful goodbye

Baby what can I do
Oh to get through to you
And sometimes I cry
It's a fool's lullaby
Sometimes I cry
It's just a fool's lullaby
I'm tired of being strong, yeah

Promises

Police cars round in circles
The silence gathering
You never know what's next down here
Close your eyes and shut your mouth

I know I won't last forever
If there's nothing left in your heart for me
Baby, baby, baby, baby
Too young to die and too old
To believe in
Promises

The ambulance is singing
To streetcars in the rain
Like barracuda waiting
For the guns down in the hood

But this ain't no West Side Story
And the curtain's comin' down on me
Baby, baby, baby, baby
Too young to die and too old
To believe in
Promises

It's all sound and all fury
It's all reach and no touch
It's all life's cold bravado
All grown up and old so fast

And I know I won't last forever
If there's nothing left in your heart for me
Baby, baby, baby, baby
Too young to die and too old
I'm too young to die and too old
To believe in
Promises
