Track Name: Seagreen Dress
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
Track Name: On the Edge of My Seat
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
Track Name: A New Begin
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
Track Name: Sarah Brown
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
Track Name: Lullaby
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.
