Ten Nights 09:28
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

Three o'clock in the morning Snowing and I can't go home Coming down in Kingston Christmas Eve the roads are closed Just like Walter Gibson Knowing what the Shadow knows And on their way From Saratoga They burned our fields They burned our homes Candy shop quartet Free coffee and chocolate Dreaming of the pine needles Waiting for my next set Hallucinating wonders Drying out like Benedict And on their way From Saratoga They burned our fields They burned our homes They burned our homes They burned our homes Commander of the troops I tried to capture Bemis Heights Talking in tongues They couldn't get to me on time Forced to retreat I turned and ran to safety In the pines And on their way From Saratoga They burned our fields They burned our homes

From the dust I come To the the dust I return From the dust I come To the the dust I return From the roofs I cry From the roofs I cry From the roofs I cry From the roofs I cry From the dust I come To the the dust I return From the dust I come To the the dust I return

Say can you see by the dawn's early light The birds in flight At such a dizzying height Our flag still waves in the dusk Who do you trust? When love turns to dust Who do you trust? I'm still free I'm still free And I'll tell the world about it 'Cause I got no doubt about it I want a love that will bind All of time Will you be mine Give me a sign Here's a salute to the old Stars and stripes From such a dizzying height To the morning light I'm still free I'm still free And I'll tell the world about it 'Cause I got no doubt about it I'm still free I'm still free And I'll tell the world about it 'Cause I got no doubt about it

Easy Lover 10:20
Easy lover What are you trying to say Made love now we have to pay Easy lover What are you trying to do Made love now we'll see this through Easy lover What is there left to see Easy lover Now you know what it takes To satisfy me Easy lover It ain't so easy now Love just works this way somehow Easy lover You know it has to end Now we can't remain just friends Easy lover What is there left to see Easy lover Now you know what it takes To satisfy me

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

Lorelei 04:39
I don't want to fight your war tonight Put away all your guns and knives I am waiting Lorelei I don't want to see the streets tonight I am so weary and so tired I am waiting Lorelei Violence holds The scene below People act out their paces Go through their places Burn all the traces We alone Carry forth We are two so despite what you do Despite what you see Don't give up We're gonna be free

Blue is such a cold shelter Shelter Shelter Blue is such a cold shelter Shelter Shelter Blue is the color of the sky Blue is the color of her eyes Blue is the color of the mountains Blue is the color of the sea Of the sea Blue is such a cold shelter Shelter Shelter Blue is such a cold shelter Shelter Shelter Blue is the color of the sky Blue is the color of her eyes Blue is the color of the mountains Blue is the color of the sea Of the sea

Spiritual 09:02
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

Game 6 of the World Series was starting at Progressive Field in Cleveland. We were at the Love Song. Christine and Kayla from the Gaylord were there. Spaceland’s Liz Garo was there. Ryan Qualls manned the bar and the desk. The legendary Gary Mallaber played drums. He was the drummer on Steve Miller Band’s “Fly Like An Eagle”, and so many other eternal tracks. Check out his website (www.garymallaber.com) if you don’t believe me. He told me if a song is strong and catchy, everything takes care of itself. Matty D strolled in with his mighty sax. The Cubs beat the Indians and we played World Of Blue.
