Track Name: Show My LIght (Live)
There are things we don't understand
That we may never will
Like why does man always fight with man
For anything and everything

But we still find a way to live
And survive and be happy
But did you ever try to understand
That this may be apathy

I will try to show my light
I will try for you
I will try to show my light
I will try for you

You never know there's a problem
Until it's way too late
Fear and hate start to grip the minds
And fear makes one an easy prey

I will try to show my light
I will try for you
I will try to show my light
I will try for you

I will try to show my light
I will try for you
I will try to show my light
I will try for you
Track Name: Real Love (Live)
How do you know when enough is enough
How do you know when too much is too much
Won't somebody tell me before I lost my mind

How do you know when you've gone the wrong way
Doesn't it always seem to early to say
Won't somebody tell me before I go insane

Oh that real love
That real love
That real love
May it guide me

How do you live with such rapid change
You blink your eyes and ain't nothing the same
Won't somebody tell me so I can live my life

With that real love
That real love
That real love
May it guide us

Note by note step by step
Be limitless be patient
Note by note step by step
Be limitless be patient

With that real love
That real love
That real love
May it guide us
Track Name: Lost in Time (Live)
Young child free and wild
Never change stay the same
But others will tell you to grow up
Rid you of your light and your love
Lose your imagination lose your mind

Lost in time in time in time in time

Young woman emancipation
Finally free to chase your dreams
But others will tell you that you can't
It's your spirit that they cannot stand
For their sprits have been lost

In time in time in time

Old man veteran
In your eyes wisdom lies
But others will treat you like a child
As you force them to reconcile
That everything will be lost

In time in time in time
Track Name: See What You Want (Live)
When I was a young girl
My daddy told me so
He said now you're alive girl
The blues are in your soul

I don't understand I said I don't know what you mean
He said that's because I see what I want to see

I lost my favorite toy
I fell from a tree
I found my first boy
And he showed me

Now that I'm older I see more clearly
But I am still guilty I still see what I want to see

Live fast and die hard that's what the kids say
Longer that I live the more I wanna see another day
Live fast and die hard that's what the kids say
Longer that I live the more I wanna see another day
Oh but I don't care I'm gonna do it my way

No matter what
This world spins around
It'll chew you up
And spit you right back out

Some stand back up some sink in defeat
One sees it all the other sees what they want to see

So with my head high
I follow my nose
Sometimes I can fly
Sometimes I lose control

I don't understand I say my eyes confuse me
Lately I've seen more than I want to see

Live fast and die hard that's what the kids say
Longer that I live the more I wanna see another day
Live fast and die hard that's what the kids say
Longer that I live the more I wanna see another day
Oh but I don't care I'm gonna do it my way
Track Name: One Step Forward (Live)
They say freedom is in the mind
Well we lose our freedom when we get too scared to fight
One step forward is another step farther behind

Hardly nothing can make me cry
But when I saw history repeat I wiped my eyes
One step forward is another step farther behind

You see I go out on the corner and bare my soul
Play my guitar strings until my fingers swill
I don't make much money and they treat me mean
But I know that this creation keeps my heart beating

We lose this music when we fall for the dollar signs
One step forward is another step farther behind

[solo]

You see I grab pen and paper and bare my soul
Expose my tender heart for the world to know
It ain't about the money or the popularity
It's the healing and the love and the connectivity

We lose this music when we fall for the dollar signs
One step forward is another step farther behind
What I say
One step forward is another step farther behind
And I'll keep playing 'til the sun goes down on my life.
Track Name: Back to Earth (Live)
Dance he said dance like you'll never dance again
Laugh he said laugh like you'll never laugh again
He died a young man but seemed an old man
He saw not the end but a way to begin again

So tell me once tell me twice tell me that I'll never die
When you like won't you please tell me why
When you can't then I'll search for the answers
But I'll get lost and find more to wonder

Like why the dead man knows it all
And why I feel alone
And why I try to fly but always fall back to earth

[guitar solo]

And when I die I'll know it all
I accept that I am alone
And I will try to fly but I will fall back to earth
Track Name: What I Need (Live)
You impress me
The way you test me
Spinnin' circles around my head
You make me realize
That I've been lonely
You make me realize
I need a man

You are what I need
I never wanna be alone
Yeah your body's what I need
To keep me warm to keep me warm
Your love is what I need
I'm starving on my own
Oh you are what I need

Feels I've been sleeping
But I've been hiding
And I've been searching
Searching for you
Doors I'd open would lead to nowhere
Roads I'd follow would never end

So you are what I need
I'll never get lost again
Yeah your hands are what I need
To carry the light to carry the light
Your body's what I need
To keep me warm to keep me warm
Oh you are what I need

You impress me
The way you test me
Take my body and set it free
You make me realize that there's a difference
Between what i want
And what I need
And what I need
Track Name: Instinct (Live)
In the stars I see my history
But in the clouds I see your face
You make me feel like I am missing
Drifting off in outer space

And in the stars I see my destiny
But in you I see my fate
How many years before you find me
Is how many that I will wait

Let me show you I'm your only instinct
Let me show you I'm the only one
'Cos I know that you're my only instinct
And together we could have some fun

There's a way the world it moves us
And the timing's always right
So what will be will always be
No matter how hard we fight

Let me show you I'm your only instinct
Let me show you I'm the only one
'Cos I know that you're my only instinct
And together we could have some fun

[solo]

Let me show you I'm your only instinct
Let me show you I'm the only one
'Cos I know that you're my only instinct
And together we could have some fun

Let me show you I'm your only instinct
Let me show you I'm the only one
'Cos I know that you're my only instinct
And together we could have some fun
Track Name: Rollin On (Live)
Do you hear that baby?
That's the sound of time rollin on
Do you hear that baby?
That's the sound of time rollin on
You wake up in the morning
Before you know it the evening's already gone

Are you sure you hear that baby?
Cos I hear it everyday
You don't act like you hear that baby
Cos for me I can't get away
The more you choose to ignore it
The fast you'll reach your dying day

How do you live knowing each moment could be your last?
Some people drink some people smoke all to run away from this fact
No matter how you choose to do it
That old clock is always on your ass

Time keeps rollin, time keeps rollin on
With or without you baby, with or without you baby
Time keeps rollin, time keeps rollin on
With or without you baby, with or without you baby
Time keeps rollin, time keeps rollin on
With or without you baby, with or without you baby
Track Name: Always Free (Live)
I live in a little house on the side of the street
Where the grass is dead but they water the concrete
In the summer I watch the people float by
In the winter I watch them weep and cry
I live in a little house on the side of the street

I live in a little house on the side of the road
Where the people starve just to feed their cars and boats
In the fall the men they stomp in shout
In the spring the women frolick about
I live in a little house on the side of the road

Oh try to believe
That work will set you free
Only wise men see that we were always free

I live in a place where the people wonder why
Why the grass is always greener on the other side
In the day they go to work and wait
In the night they drink their fears away
I live in a place where the people wonder why

Oh try to believe
That work will set you free
Only wise men see that we were always free

Oh try to believe
That work will set you free
Oh try to believe
That work will set you free
Only wise men see that we were always free
