Track Name: Angels at My Door
Angels at My Door

There’s a finger on the dial
the lucky wheel goes ‘round
a little joker knows we can’t escape

the same time every year
the fun fairs’ back in town
wonders in the air like ticker-tape

58, 56, 54 angels at my door
63, 62, 61, 60, 59, 58
angels at my gate

So throw a number down
and place another bet
the joker laughs as the stakes get higher

the gambler and the clown
without a safety net
balancing unsteady on a wire

58, 56, 54 angels at my door
63, 62, 61, 60, 59, 58
angels at my gate

58, 56, 54 angels at my door
63, 62, 61, 60, 59, 58
angels at my gate

There’s a finger on the dial
the lucky wheel goes ‘round
a little joker knows we can’t escape

the same time every year
the fun fairs’ back in town
wonders in the air like ticker-tape

58, 56, 54 angels at my door
63, 62, 61, 60, 59, 58
angels at my gate

58, 56, 54 angels at my door
63, 62, 61, 60, 59, 58
angels at my gate
Track Name: Nightingale
Nightingale

You landed on my shoulder
and whispered in my ear
If you listen this evening
I will be so near

The moon is high, the leaves softly collide
silently you bring the song you sing
Here alone, my little song
just for me, all night long
How sweet you sing, the stars above
just me and you, the one I love

When I hear you, when I hear your song
you fill me all night long
Till I’m dreaming, till I’m dreaming in your song
I know I’ll love you till the dawn
Lover’s sleeping, it’s just you and me
ever dreaming tenderly
When I hear you in the trees so high
till the dawn, nightingale, you’ll fly

I hear you, I hear you, I hear you, I feel you
I hear you, I hear you, I hear you, your singing
I hear you, I hear you, I hear you, so sweetly
I hear you, I hear you, I hear you, you fill me

The moon is high...

Just one more song is all I ask
Just here by me your song so free
Sing on, my love, your heart so strong
Let’s go before this night’s encore

Just one more song is all I ask
Just here by me your song so free
Sing on, my love, your heart so strong
the dawn, your song, this night is gone


When I hear you...


The moon is high, the leaves softly collide
silently you bring just me and you, the one I love

Track Name: Happy the Man
Happy the Man

Packing his things to go home
6 hours to call his own
gotta get off of that phone
6 o’clock come and he gone

pushing that button, 15 floor drop
stepping out, to the parking lot

he’s thinking about her, while he drives in one place
he can’t wait to see her heavenly face

he picked a flower for her, yellow and white
it smelled like heaven, felt like sunlight
maybe she’ll put it safely somewhere
he hopes she’ll wear it, in her long hair

He can’t wait to go home to see her face
he will kiss her lips amidst a warm embrace
he thinks he loves her, forever and ever
he hopes she’ll love him forever and ever

He is so happy, happy and light
he’s putting on wings, about to take flight
he thinks he loves her, forever and ever
he hopes she’ll love him forever and ever

(break)

He is so happy, happy and light
he’s putting on wings, about to take flight
he thinks he loves her, forever and ever
he hopes she’ll love him forever and ever

Track Name: Barbara Henry
Barbara Henry

An unassuming spirit living
each day the same as yesterday’s
Nothing ever threatened you
Until…… today

You didn’t want to see it happen
And you didn’t like to hear the cries
Revolution happening and you said
No bloody good byes
No bloody good byes
Today nobody dies

You saved me, you saved me tonight
You couldn’t bear to see me die
You laid your body over mine
Because you didn’t want to see me die

Did anyone ever tell you
Not to talk to strangers
or did you miss that one
Did anyone ever warn you
Just to stay away away

Heart larger than logic
bet you never knew you were a hero
But you surprised yourself by
not letting me go
not letting me go

You saved me, you saved me tonight
You couldn’t bear to see me die
You laid your body over mine
Because you didn’t want to see me die

Did anyone ever tell you
Not to talk to strangers
Did anyone ever warn you
Just to stay away away

You laid your body over mine

Because you didn’t want to see me die

Track Name: Casa Del Fuego
Casa del Fuego

You’ll have to see
(some require)
welcome thee
to my house of fire

Stay awhile
you’re my desire
you look so fine
and you inspire
it’s cool cool cool
in my house of fire

Your kiss is sweet
your heart will beat
so please adorn
and I won’t tire
I’ll keep you warm
in my house of fire

reach out to me
in my house of fire
my house of fire

Have to go...
just like smoke
too hot my glow
and now I hope
I miss you so

in my house of fire

in my house of fire

reach out to me

my house of fire

in my house of fire

Track Name: Fading in C# Minor
Fading in C#m


You got me off balance
something is wrong

missed you...last night
you were gone so long

can’t find your record
with your favorite song

With whom have you left yourself...
who has you right now?
You said, you’d never do this to me
you gave me your vow
but where would I look
if it’s you I needed to find?

You’re fading
you’re fading away

Don’t leave me
don’t leave me
don’t leave
don’t go...without me

you’re fading away

Don’t leave me
don’t leave me
don’t leave
don’t go...without me

don’t leave, don’t go, don’t leave
don’t go, don’t leave
don’t leave, don’t go, don’t leave

you can’t go

Track Name: Freedom On Fire
Freedom on Fire

Peaking through the curtain
Scared to leave the house
Does it get us anywhere?
Who does it arouse?
I’d rather be hungry
Than walk the streets alone
Someone’s after something
won’t stop till it’s all gone

when it’s over
Is it really over?
Or are we just sleeping?
when it’s over
Is it really over?
Or are we just sleeping?

Lock the doors with two bolts
A chain and an alarm
Try to keep them all away
Save us from the harm
The roof shakes anyway
Like earth and air are mad
Let the whole world say
We’re the one’s been bad

Lock the doors with two bolts
A chain and an alarm
Try to keep them all away
Save us from the harm
The roof shakes anyway
Like earth and air are mad
Let the whole world say
We’re the one’s been bad

when it’s over
Is it really over?

Or are they just sleeping? Just sleeping. Sleeping.

Sleeping …………..

Track Name: Hate
Hate

I hate, I hate
and I hate to hate you
I wait, I pray, I hope, I stay
and still every day
I cry, I bury brothers
that no longer breathe, except hate

My leader
my leader pledges
that we have just begun
and what will it take
what will it take

So it was in this desperation
I decide to reach out my hand
alone we can do nothing
together we can do something

I’m tired, I’m tired, tired

I hate, I hate
and I hate to hate you
I wait, I pray, I hope, I stay
and still every day
I cry, I bury brothers
that no longer breathe, except hate

My leader
my leader pledges
that we have just begun
and what will it take
da-da da-da

So it’s in this desperation
I decide to reach your hand
seperate we can do nothing
together we can do something

Tired, I’m tired, tired
Because I’m tired, tired
Because I’m tired
Tired of hating

Track Name: Jonah
Jonah

Cut to
the bar scene
Enter John, Jonah, Madeleine


sitting, drinking, watching
Saying nothing
Nothing comes to mind

You see,
John loves Madeleine
Madeleine loves Jonah
And Jonah
Jonah loves no one

Jonah, Jonah loves no one
Jonah loves no one

Jonah’s never gonna be happy

And the people
Who wanna be loved so bad
will be missing the kind of love
Jonah once had

John loves Madeleine
Madeleine loves Jonah
And Jonah
Jonah loves no one

Jonah loves no one
Jonah, Jonah loves no one

And the other guy diggin deep in his pocket
walking away with his head hung low
so low

John loves Madeleine
Madeleine loves Jonah
And Jonah
Jonah loves no one

Jonah loves no one
Jonah, Jonah loves no one

At the other end of the counter
exchanging numbers
Karen and Michael
and the plans grow

And the other guy diggin deep in his pocket
walkin’ away with his head hung low
so low

Track Name: She Wolf
She Wolf

red lips
green eyes
black hair
no longer young, still beautiful

oh, oh, a servant to her heart
but free

she fell in love
fell in love in a strong way
with a man so oh very lovely
but a man who was not hers

Lola’s so scared
to say that she cares
Lola pretending that it's rained
and washed it all away

Lonely sparrow
she stands on her balcony
it's a holiday now

oh, her body, aching
with no one to want her

Her hands thrusting through her hair
no remedy for this tear

lovers whisper
lets pretend the rain
has come and washed it away

lovers just pray
that clouds so gray
have come and washed it away

lovers just say
pretend the rain
has come and washed it away

like every day
the love she has
is washed away

©2006 Jennifer Cook and Richard Larsen
Track Name: Wordless
No need to say the words
that once set free from the mouth
clumsy and true, wispy and blue
endlessly linger in air

Kicking and scratching
these words would rather be free
but once they’re free,
they linger in air endlessly

Farewell from the tongue
once last breath and they’re gone
Words that seem wrong
they don’t seem to belong

Anywhere, somewhere, everywhere, everywhere
Anywhere, somewhere, everywhere, everywhere
Anywhere, somewhere, everywhere, everywhere
Anywhere, anywhere...

Words that seem wrong
they don’t seem to belong

Anywhere, somewhere, everywhere, everywhere
Anywhere, somewhere, everywhere, everywhere

Everywhere, everywhere
Everywhere, everywhere
they don’t seem to belong
somewhere

endlessly linger in air
Track Name: Blue Dress
Blue Dress

Please don’t
Let another moment pass us by
Before we talk again
Before we touch again

I wore the blue dress
You said was your favorite
You shook you sweat
Like you had a fever
When you said
You couldn’t be near me
I understood
‘cause I couldn’t either

It’s senseless to deny
You from me
And me from you
Although we’ll hurt again
And we’ll cry again

But that’s okay
As long as it’s each other we affect
And not another one
And not another one

Please don’t
Let another moment pass us by
Before we laugh again
Before we love again

...Please don’t

...Another

Please don’t
Let another moment pass us by
Before we talk again
Before we touch again

Although we’ll hurt again
And we’ll cry again
Before we laugh again
Before we love again

trying to remind you...
