Let me pull you closer to me As we waltz the room so everyone can see Your seagreen dress Not the heart outside my chest Oh baby it’s too soon to let them know That my heart would stay with you if my body chose to go Cause I’ve seen California days New York City nights Cleveland afternoons Nashville’s early morning light But nothing, no nothing compares to the way you look tonight Oh love I have been waiting for you all my life So let the rhythm move you to and fro Let your heart just raise up and lift you off of your toes We’ll fly so high into the sky And the planes and the birds all pass us by Oh baby don’t look down just hold me tight Cause as long as you’re with me, you’ll be alright Cause I’ve seen California days New York City nights Cleveland afternoons Nashville’s early morning light But nothing, oh nothing compares to the way you look tonight Oh love I have been waiting for you all my life I was prone to give my time to anyone with a pretty face Little did I know you’d be the one to lead me through the saving grace of love And I thank the stars above Cause I’ve seen California days New York City nights Cleveland afternoons Nashville’s early morning light But nothing, oh nothing compares to the way you look tonight Oh love I have been waiting for you all my life Nothing, no nothing compares to the way you look tonight Oh love I have been waiting for you all my life

I see you there with your eyes all aglow Itching to tell me all the things you know And I can hardly wait that’s why I went and saved a date at our own private table in the back of your favorite place (chorus) You got me on the edge of my seat Can’t wait to see you got buried underneath ya Waiter don’t go spoiling it please The cruel anticipation is Oh so sweet You say your dads a lawyer, and your mom works with a canvas You’re sisters in the corner little shorter little darker always teaching crazy people all her crazy dances I grew up alone, my parent split went to live at my daddy’s home Times got bad, but still he never let me know Mom was never far away Every other weekend I went to stay And time passed by near the city by the bay (chorus) I got you on the edge of your seat Ya can’t wait to see what I got buried underneath me Nerves have got you shaking your knees The cruel anticipation is Oh so sweet VOX SOLO We swing round the lazy susan Bellies full, I’ll take you cruisin Down to Lakewood Park just before dark We’re headin to the solstice steps, gonna watch the sun go down Then you and me baby we’ll fool around You got me on the edge of my seat You and me babe, swinging in the tree babe First comes love, next comes the lovin

A New Begin 03:05
Starting out Back at one Who am I Where am I supposed to go A new begin Look up that hill Ohh I am alone Ohh I am alone Starting out Back at one Who am I Where am I supposed to go Look up that hill for the morning rise Look up that hill till you can see some light Ohh I am alone Ohh I am alone Oooh, oooh Look up that hill for the morning rise Look up that hill till you can see some light Tell the keeper of the lighthouse Keep the lamp lit bright for me My boat is lost adrift at sea and there’s no one to man the wheel I have blown far from my home Away from the comforts and places I’ve known Armed with nothing but words and the hope that someday they’ll be heard Ohh, I am alone Ohh, I am alone I am alone

Sarah Brown 04:09
Many tales of love have been told upon the stage Found and lost year to year, age to age Boy meets girl, girl falls in love Then the boy goes away Let the lights go down Children gather round And let me tell you of the tale of lonely Sarah Brown OHHHHHH OHHHHHH Little miss Brown was born in a town not far from here Her beauty and grace grew and grew with every year She dreamed of men she’d read in fairy tales But all of her pursuits had failed She didn’t understand that finding a man to take her hand Meant she’d have to pack her bags, travel on to foreign lands So she booked a trip, kissed her sorry town goodbye kissed her momma on the cheek, said “Oh now don’tcha cry” OHHHHHH OHHHHHH Sarah traveled on through the rain and the snow To find a love that she could call her own That would never let her bed grow cold Stay with her even when she’s old A love that would surpass all of the stories she’d been told Then one day, she found herself a man That took her hopes and dreams and bundled them up inside his hands That held her, and kissed her, made a body feel right And made love all through the night to lonely little Sarah Brown OHHHHHH OHHHHHH They married on a Sunday Had a baby on a Friday He left her on a Tuesday.... And she cried Oh she cried OHHHHHH OHHHHHH

Lullaby 04:44
A feeling & sound that is difficult to describe I swear it’s the sound I’ll hear when I die. Or at least it’s what I hope it will truly feel like The long deep breaths A feeling & sound that is difficult to describe I swear it’s the sound I’ll hear when I die... The swirl of the gong that slowly disappears into a gorgeous song My body finally at balance, an inner, settled grace A feeling & sound that is difficult To describe I swear it’s the sound I’ll hear when I die. Or at least it’s what I hope it will Truly feel like The air into my nostrils that’s quickly taking space. A feeling & sound that is difficult To describe I swear it’s what I’ll hear when I die. If that’s what it will be like A long deep breath a state of peace of mind that after a courageous battle i hope a peace of mind that after a courageous battle all I’ll hear is lullaby all I’ll hear is lullaby. All I’ll hear is lullaby.
