LIGHTNING 03:51
LIGHTNING The day after you’d gone A hard rain coming on A cold wind swept me from the hills I made it into town And I drank the whiskey down I smiled it warmed away the chill In these days of doubt You pay to sit one out Beg to buy a little time You learn to keep on running You know the storm is coming The thunder rumbling behind Now I find I’m standing Where the LIGHTNING’s landing & I knew you’d planned it all along Were you tired of being Where there ain’t no freedom Feeling like you’re always ever in the wrong And even if the rain keeps up tomorrow I’ll keep moving on Where’s the Angel’s landing Ain’t no understanding I only seen them fly away You felt it in your skin And the whiskey you were soaking in It must’ve been too good to stay So I’ll keep on walking Half afraid of stopping Half swallowed reasons in my mouth While the heavy laden Read your name a-fading Upon the shelters of the south
2.
BEAUTY 04:48
Beauty All of your life Where have you been You been hiding in shadows Won’t you shine again With your mouth full of storm clouds & your eyes full of rain All you hear is the thunder All feel is the wind All of the BEAUTY in you Always been clear to me All of the BEAUTY in you Always been so hard for you to see & I hope it ain’t too late Not too much left unsaid I hope you can hear me Through the noise in your head CHORUS INSTRUMENTAL BRIDGE Now someday if you’re ready If you’re feeling all right If you come around this way again Won’t you call me sometime CHORUS

JUST hold on 03:41
JUST hold on We’ve come too far to walk away We lost some hopes along the way Please push a little further on Please JUST hold on We buried what we never said We haunt these graveyards in our heads Please dig a little deeper down Please JUST hold on In my dreams at night What I see, it ain’t right How can all these people be doing it baby When not enough, no not enough of them are making love Now it’s our path to walk alone We can’t look back or we turn to stone Please push a little further on Please JUST hold on JUST hold on

the ROAD 04:20
the ROAD Fog climbs thick on the mountain The air hangs heavy on the breeze The full moon wearing out her halo Night as quiet as a thief And I want you to steal me Yes I want you to steal me Where the road I’m following Filling up a hollow in My soul will grow around it My soul will go unbound & fly I left it all to be here Among the quiet of the trees To hear without distraction What it is that my heart needs Yes I want you to heal me Yes I want you to heal me CHORUS BRIDGE CHORUS

SURFliner 03:40
SURFliner I hear that train whistle moan I feel the SURFliner pass Shaking the bones of my home rattling the window glass That old frame goes crooked just like the picture turned out Like a street lamp flickers I guess we all just burned out So ride that silver SURFliner baby You’ll find your silver lining maybe And you’ll never come home Now everybody knows it’s that kind of town Where you gotta be ready when the sh!t goes down And everybody talks about getting out But nobody knows what they’re talking about They’re busy buying all their baggies & their forty ounce All their hard work never ever amounts To nothing from nothing so you know you gotta bounce Find a place in the sun with someone who counts So ride that silver SURFliner baby You’ll find your silver lining maybe It’s waiting down the track so go and don’t look back Just ride that silver SURFliner baby Ride on … I want something better than this for you So ride that silver SURFliner baby You’ll find your silver lining maybe It’s waiting down the track so go and don’t look back Just ride that silver SURFliner baby
