Track Name: Ray Of Light
Ray of light
I never see
Through the passing clouds
Or through the trees

When you left
Into the pouring rain
I knew I’d never
See you again

Ray of light
Won’t shine through
When love is through
When love is through

Late one night
I heard you at my door
But I pretended like
I wasn’t home

Please forgive
Me for what I’ve done
But you know I would’ve done it
Like I did before

Ray of light
Won’t shine through
What can I do
What can I do

Ray of light
I never see
Through the passing clouds
Or through the trees

When you left
Into the pouring rain
I knew I’d never
See you again

Ray of light
Won’t shine through
When love is through
When love is through
Track Name: Dreaming Of Love
Lost my way
It's alright
Lost my way
It's alright

I've been dreaming of love

And we're so close
And we're so near
Oh when we touch
Oh we disappear

Lost my way
I don't care
Lost my way
I don't care

I've been dreaming of love

And we're so close
And we're so near
Oh when we touch
Oh we disappear
Track Name: No One Knows
No one knows
No one knows
And I can't find a witness
To watch the river
As it flows away

No one knows
No one knows
And I ain't finding out
Where the river goes
As it flows away
Track Name: Untitled No. 1
Walked away
Released from all my crimes
Walked away
Released from all my crimes

But I could never hide
What I kept inside

Walked away
Released from all my sins
Walked away
Released from all my sins

But the cruelest thing
Was all my suffering
When I held you that night
I knew it felt so right
I knew it felt so right

Walked away
Released from all my crimes
Walked away
Released from all my crimes

But I could never hide
What I kept inside
Track Name: Funny How Time Slips Away
Well, hello there
My it's been a long, long time
How am I doin'?
Oh, I guess that I'm doin' fine
It's been so long now but it seems now
That it was only yesterday
Gee, ain't it funny how time slips away

How's your new love
I hope that he's doin' fine
I heard you told him that you'd love him till the end of time
Now that's the same thing that you told me, seems like just the other day
Gee, ain't funny how time slips away

I gotta go now
I guess I'll see you around
You don't never know, never know
When I'll be back in town
But remember what I tell you
In time, you're gonna pay
And it's surprising how time slips away
Track Name: Ten Nights
Storybook fable is ending
As ten angels are descending
I forget that you
Are my only friend

Love is my only devotion
Ten little steps to the ocean
Ten nights to decide
Whether I can live alone

Ten nights all alone
Praying you haven’t gone
I can’t stop love
I can’t erase
What’s been written down

Storybook fable is ending
As ten angels are descending
I forget that you
Are my only friend
Track Name: I Love You
If I could
I'd put away my sorrow
I wouldn't wait until tomorrow
To let you know how I feel

If I could
I'd look you in the eyes
And it wouldn't be a surprise
I would know what to say

But I'm afraid
Of what's at stake
Of what a love like
This could do

Oh it's my fate
To hesitate
From saying I love you

But I would if
You said you'd never leave
This little promise always to keep
This broken heart that wants you

If I could
Every time you held me close
Remembering when love at most
Burned in flames
Died away

If I could
I'd take you by the hand
And I'm sure you'd understand
Why it is I want you so

But I'm afraid
Of what's at stake
Of what a love like
This could do

Oh it's my fate
To hesitate
From saying I love you

But I would if
You said you'd never leave
This little promise always to keep
This broken heart that wants you
Track Name: Her Used-To-Been
She knew it was all over
When she turned her back
On her used-to-been
She knew it was all over

When she turned from him
She turned to me
What's for me to say

I see that you've been crying
Your old man's arms
Like to bear their fists

But my arms have hands like the graceful mist
And all they want to do is hold you
Track Name: Spiritual
Jesus
I don’t want to die alone
Jesus, oh Jesus
I don’t want to die alone
My love wasn’t true
Now all I have is you
Jesus, oh Jesus
I don’t want to die alone

Jesus
If you hear my last breath
Don't leave me here
Left to die a lonely death
I know I have sinned
But lord I’m suffering
Jesus, oh Jesus
If you hear my last breath

Jesus
I don’t want to die alone
Jesus, oh Jesus
I don’t want to die alone
My love wasn’t true
Now all I have is you
Jesus, oh Jesus
I don’t want to die alone

All my troubles
All my pain
Will leave me once again
Track Name: Phone Machine
I got a message tonight
It was on my machine

She said, I quote,
"Hope you're not asleep
'Cause I'm in my bed
And the lights are dim
And the air is hot
So won't you come on in"

I got a message tonight
It was on my machine

But I got home too late
I couldn't even see
That the stars above
Deter me from love

'Cause she's in her bed
And the lights are dim
And the air is hot
So won't you come on in
Track Name: I Lied
Holding hands down by the shore
And I know
God knows it feels so fine

Holding hands down by the shore
And I know
God knows it feels so fine

I said I loved you

I said I loved you

Holding hands down by the shore
Leaned over and whispered in your ear

But I lied, I lied
I couldn't love you if I tried

Holding you in my arms
In my bed
God knows it feels so fine

Holding you in my arms
In my bed
God knows it feels so fine

I said I loved you
I said I loved you

Holding you in my arms
In my bed
I whispered in your ear

But I lied, I lied
I feel so dead inside
I couldn't love you if I tried
Track Name: Long Time Ago
One time long ago
When the sun had dimmed it's glow
When the clouds were filled with
Rain and cold

That was a long time
That was a long time
A long time ago

Love has left me all alone
Her secrets left they're better left untold
Why oh why she left I'll never know

But that was a long
That was a long time
A long time ago

That was a long time
A long time ago
