Track Name: I Ride The Plains
So
I'm looking around here
trying to find anything
to help me put my past away
and with each sunrise

Home
to forest hills of glass
limbs covered in ice
just like the night
I fell asleep outside

Here
in every barren field
there's nothing I can hide behind
no dying trees to shelter
I'm stuck in my head

Though
the journey home reveals
a look back on the good and bad
the bad still hurts
the good helps the ride
Track Name: Campfire
There is a campfire
in my soul
It was started
long ago
always burning
even in cold
a gift
too large to hold

Now you are walking
in the sun
feeding the fire
that we both hold
the energy
of infinite suns
surrounding us

When I'm alone
I'm not alone
When it is cold
I am warm
When life is prickly
You are here
hands in my hands
eyes bright with truth

Laughing at us both
two souls
Now warmed by fire
yet I feel
There is us
and that is enough
Track Name: Little One
Little one life unknown
You never got a start
Little one you're not alone
Your soul lives in my heart...
Oh you fill my heart

I never had a chance
To see your sweet smile
I never had a chance
To hold you awhile
I never had a chance
To kiss your soft skin
But I had the chance
To cry for you ...once again

Little one I had dreams
You were in them too
Little one sometimes it seems
I'm always missing you...
Oh how I miss you..

I never had a chance
To see your sweet smile
I never had a chance
To hold you awhile
I never had a chance
To kiss your soft skin
But I had the chance
To cry for you ...once again

Oh little one when I think of you each night
After watching children play in day's light
I'll look up to the dark starry sky
With a tear in my eye
And I'll feel the love of an angel
And send hugs to hold you...
To hold us both tight

I never had a chance
To see your sweet smile
I never had a chance
To hold you awhile
I never had a chance
To kiss your soft skin
But I had the chance
To cry for you...once again

February 2014 Lyrics - Elizabeth Petty
Track Name: Run to Indigo
Golden, was the sunshine of her youth
Violet the flower of truth
and in the air a dozen grains of sand
blowing through the windows of her mind
Speakers from a player, play a song
Reminding her of all the times she was wrong

Chorus
And now she sits waiting alone
for someone to just help her get on
but the shades of her life
and all she used to know
begin to run to indigo

Torn, into the moment she was told
to leave the past behind
but now all this sadness oozes through
Reaching out she grasps at a hand.
Track Name: Standing In The Light
It's the first of 2014
rising in the Southern sky
and every hour has it's special sheen
softly and slowy
the grandness advances
coaxed by Southern breezes
ground level earthiness
a rinse of the senses

Chorus:
Standing in the light
far away from olden sorrows
standing in the light
with another year that's over
standing in the light
dready to move ahead
make the hard times work
make the good times sing with laughter


A young man has his memes
an old man has his memories
and now I stand below
under mid day solar rays
casting no shadow
but with clearing sight
yes here I stand
in the veritcal light

Chorus:
Standing in the light
far away from olden sorrows
standing in the light
with another year that's over
standing in the light
dready to move ahead
make the hard times work
make the good times sing with laughter
Track Name: Too Good To Be True
Lyrics: Dee West
February 2014

V1

What’s the point of talking
When all we do is shout?
An old familiar pattern
When we try to work it out

I remember laughing
But laughter turned to tears
A torrent of blurred vision
The storm of recent years

Chorus

Somehow I knew
We were too good to be true
The finer things never last
They become a part of the past

Just like me and you
We were too good to be true
Changes happen all the time
But you wont change your mind

V2

Dreams are for believers
Who trust in love and truth
And I was a subscriber
‘Til I lost my faith in you

We fought a losing battle
The war has come and gone
And ugly scars need healing
Before we can move on

Chorus
Track Name: Wine and Old Guitars
Wine and old guitars…
old, good friends convene tonight,
come! let us sing and drink, head for the stars
the morning light…

There will be some tales
still untold and good for all those smiles…
there will be wine if all else fails
to stop time for a while…

(Chorus)
Wine and old guitars…
let’s sing and drink tonight,
it feels so right
when old friends come around,
we won’t live forever,
wine and old guitars,
wine and old guitars…

Wrinkles on the skin,
eyes are wet, the lips they are sore,
and just before the second verse sets in
we are not young any more…

Tonight let’s not care
what year it is, or who we are,
don’t l talk about things that scare,
but wine and old guitars…

(Chorus)
Wine and old guitars…
let’s sing and drink tonight,
it feels so right
when old friends come around,
we won’t live forever,
wine and old guitars,
wine and old guitars…

(Chorus)
Wine and old guitars…
let’s sing and drink tonight,
it feels so right
when old friends come around,
we won’t live forever,
wine and old guitars,
wine and old guitars…
