TAKE WITH YOU LOVE

Love suffers long 
It's kind to the bone 
Love doesn't envy your things 
And it won't write down your wrongs 
It is not rude or greedy 
Or puffed up with pride 
Love delights in the right things 
And never in the lies 

Singer, sing 
And poet, write 
Prophet, speak like angels 
Wise men, lay the mysteries plain 
Healer, lay those hands on me 
But take with you love 
Wherever you go 
Cause without love it's just an empty show 

Love wears a cross 
Love washes feet 
Love reaches out 
When you're drowning cold and deep


SWEET ON YOU

If I had known ten years ago

That I’d be on this road with you

Bare feet on the dash

Three dollars in cash            

I got it made as far as I’m concerned

Cause I’m sweet on you

 

I’m sweet on you

I’m sweet on you oh

Like Bonnie and Clyde

Your hand in mine 

I’m sweet on you today

            

I’m not gonna lie

you make me sad

and sometimes mad but oh

I know its worth the fight

The fight for love

signed up with the law

in front of all

under God that oh

I’d be in this fight

for life

 

I’m sweet on you

I’m sweet on you oh

Like Bonnie and Clyde

Your hand in mine 

I’m sweet on you for life

 

for rich or poor I am

better or worse I am

like cherry pie I am

sweet on you my love

SEATTLE RAIN

Seattle rain

You bring me down

Like a chain I’m rusty from 

The rain, rain, rain pouring out

 

On seven hills

My city lays 

Like a penny in a well

She waits days days days for light

From the sky

Salty sea and summer sweet blue and 

Emerald green 

 

Seattle rain

You bring me down

Like a chain I’m rusty from the 

Rain, rain, rain pouring out

 

So my sailor

So my Queen Anne

Grab yourself some hot hot coffee

Be a long long time for sun

 

When I wake up

Its pouring down

Heat my tea up 

Its sideways now

Take a walk and

Its down my neck

Through our clothes and

To the bone

We’re soaking wet

 

Seattle rain

You bring me down

Like a chain I’m rusty from the 

Rain, rain, rain pouring out


BROTHER

Oh I went off to see my brother

went off to mumble at his grave

his humbling grave

thought I would say "hello"

maybe stay a while

and watch as the roses unfold

but the quiet's got me thinking

I've nowhere to go

 

Said "Oh, brother can you hear me none?"

Said "Oh, brother where ya gone?"

 

Oh I went off to see my brother

brush the dust off of his grave

his weathered grave

told him off a dream I'd had 

how it's cold and broken in my hands

these clumsy hands

how I'm supposed to be the living

but I'm dying instead

 

oh brother, where you gone

it's been a while

it's been too long

oh brother, meet my son 

will he be like you?

will he be strong?
