Track Name: Hey Barrie's Cold
Hey, Barrie’s cold
so I’m driving hard and fast
want to get into your arms again
so I’ll be warm at last
I had a long lonely time
But now I’m coming home to mine
and I will smile when I wake up next to you

This travelling’s
been grinding to the bone
And we’ve spent 9 long months on the phone
If I see another hotel bar or pancake house or rental car
I think my friendly nature will implode

I ‘ve been surviving
Close to hell on lousy food
and all this business keeping me from you
But everytime I go to sleep and I have the chance to dream
dream about my babe is what I do
Track Name: The Shadow
The Shadow

I was told and I believe
The sun has not risen I hear the street
There is a line that can be crossed
The street light hum, the night is lost

Between yourself and who you see
My steps collide the building breaths
I hear the voice I see the flesh
I run the risk out of your head

Refrain

My very self where is it now
She said to stay all night is to know
Under the shadow

The Distant sound of moving train
My eye to educate my brain
There is a line that can be crossed
The people have all gone you see
Not them to love of me to speak

I try to catch my failing breath
Be faithful to the truthful death
To really know is to stay awake
So here I sit to contemplate

Refrain

Bridge

So that is what I will do,
I’ll stay up all night with you
That distant self I long to know
That walks tonight under the lights, a shadow
Track Name: The Good One
I spilled my drink
As I shuffled across the stage
Trying to get the attention
of someone who had glazed
Over drinking, thinking
and talking in their sleep
And I think I’ll play the good one before you get too deep

When I do I hope you’ll feel, something deeply that you need
And I think I’ll play the good one before you get too deep
Maybe I will sing a line that you’ll hold close and true
I think I’ll play the good one for you.

I took a break
And you told me I was good
Wondered was I playing anywhere
I said no you said I should
Over drinking, thinking
It’s taking away my sleep
I think I’ll play the good one before I get too deep

When I do I hope you’ll feel, something deeply that you need
And I think I’ll play the good one before I get too deep
Maybe I will sing a line that you’ll hold close and true
I think I’ll play the good one for you.

I hope you’ll feel
Something deeply that you need
I’ve fumbled madly trying
To find a line we both believe
I’ll give you everything
I know how to make it right
And I think I’ll play the good one, for you to feel tonight

When I do I hope you’ll feel, something burning in the light
I think I’ll play the good one for you to feel tonight
Maybe I will sing a line that you’ll hold close and true
I think I’ll play the good one for you

Now Don’t settle up your tab while I’m still standing on the stage
I’m giving everything I can to make you want to stay
I’ll do whatever it takes to keep this thing alive
So if you’ll order up another I’ll play the good one tonight

When I do I hope you’ll feel, something deeply that you need
And I think I’ll play the good one before you get too deep
Maybe I will sing a line that you’ll hold close and true
I think I’ll play the good one for you.
Track Name: Waiting for the Sun
It was easy before what I know now,
To drive around the block with the radio loud,
My buddy in the back seat with a girl he just met
Going to the drive through with a cassette in the deck

But I couldn’t wait for the streetlights to dim
So I could talk poetry with drama queen Kim
She didn’t really get it but the music still played
As we sat on the porch drinking sour lemonade

Refrain

I don’t know why
It’s always been the same
I’m waiting for the dark
I’m standing in the rain
I’m waiting round the corner while the wind whistles by
Waiting for the sun to come down

I moved to the city I just couldn’t wait,
To walk the street at night to listen what they say
Holding the hand of a scanty dressed girl,
The world was my ocean and she was my pearl

But I’d drop her off at her home in the East
And wander downtown to do what I please,
The barflies would join me if I sang a song
The ecstasy lasted all night long

Refrain
There were times when I cried and times when I laughed,
Without single dime to pay for the gas,
I drive towards the border till the car sputters out,
And look to the sky for the stars secret route

But holding your hand helps me break free,
Of this wandering, wondering, no need misery,
And walking so quietly up to your door,
The moon in the window, It’s quarter past four.

Refrain
Track Name: My Love
My love she hold me like a babe in her arms,
And winter can’t chill me and sun does no harm
And hard times will come and troubles will pass
And our love will linger and our love will last


My love she calls me like the wind calls the shore
and her kisses like waves move me slowly and sure
And my love she calls me and moves me slow
And I never left her and my love won't go


My love she hold me like a babe in her arms
And winter can’t chill me and sun does no harm
And my love she hold me, steadfast and true
And I’ll spend my life singing a love song to you
Track Name: The Beauty
I’ve Got the Beauty

Thumb finger D Bm G D

Walked into the seahorse and asked them for a beer
The bartender gave me some and said man what brings you hear
Pretty Carrie and Susan, showed me the very best parts of town
They said be sure to look us up if you ever come around

I hitched from outta Halifax up towards Antigonish
I was the first guy to hit the highway, and the last to catch a lift
Bob took me up to Truro, talking about his job and his wife
Dropped me off and I just smiled as I wondered about what might
----
Sunday night in Reykjavik there was nothing left to do
Hung over from the midnight sun and needing a drink or two
Walked into a public house that had a picture of a cross on a hill
Young Irish behind the bar said “come and have your fill”

Dropped into Jackdaws, for a place to sing my peace
Saw a friendly face and somewhere to earn my keep
Now Alberta’s cold in the winter and it’s hard to stay awake
But those friends made me feel at home, and gave me a place to stay
-------
I’ve taken a ride down the lonely road
Sometimes in this life it’s the only place to go
cut myself apart all the many times
The pieces all together seem to fall in place in time

Em Em Em G ||| Bm || A|||
Went to the ATM and took out my last twenty bucks
Had no more money, no girl and I was running low on luck
Played some songs on the corner, and you stopped to sing along
As I wandered home that night I was feeling pretty strong

I’ve got the beauty


I I I I’ve got the beauty...
III I’ve got the beauty...
