Track Name: Time Time
Time, Time, is on our side
Change the world if we’re just willing to try
Time, Time, for you and me
Get it together, time runs out eventually

Every minute every hour every day
time, time keeps ticking away
If time turned back, and I had another chance
Would I see different for a change

Hey Mister, could you spare some time
My 9 to 5 has gone and stolen all of mine
Hey Sister, together we’re the key
Just take the time to live the life we’re meant to be

Time, Time, is on our side
Change the world if we’re just willing to try
Time, Time, for you and me
Get it together, time runs out eventually

This second hand it keeps ticking away
It’s the final countdown, Lord it’s getting too late
Can’t turn the clock back to get another chance
We’ve got to do things different for a change

Hey Brother, could you spare an hour
I’d earn some more, but I just don’t have the power
Hey Lover, we can break these chains
Can’t waste the time while there’s still a world to save

Time, Time, is on our side
Change the world if we’re just willing to try
Time, Time, for you and me
Get it together, time runs out eventually

All the worry, and the heartbreak
What’s happening In the world today
How much more, can we take
Cause it all comes back around again

Time, Time, is on our side
Change the world if we’re just willing to try
Time, Time, for you and me
Get it together, time runs out eventually
Track Name: Heart Of Fire
Have you seen the light shining in her eyes
So bright, so beautiful, like a sunrise
Have you felt the warm glow of her smile
Like a fire burning in the cold moonlight

Yeah, she keeps me warm
Through the long black night ’til the break of dawn
Try to leave i always hold on
‘Cause my world gets colder when you’re gone

Darling take my hand, let me be your guide
Don’t cry, don’t be afraid when i’m by your side
Darling now don’t you fear, i may not know the way
But i swear i’ll stand by you ’til my dying day

Yeah, i’ll keep you warm
Through the long black night ’til the break of dawn
Try to leave i’ll always hold on
Cause my world gets colder when you’re gone

So i keep that fire burning all night long
Keep that fire burning all night long
Keep that fire burning all night long

And it keeps us warm
Keeps us warm
Yes it keeps us warm
So we, burn, burn, burn
Until the break of dawn

Keep the fire burning
Keep it burning bright
Through the morning ’til the end of the night

And it keeps us warm
Yes it keeps us warm
Keeps us warm
So we, burn, burn, burn

Yeah i keep that fire burning all night long
Keep that fire burning all night long
Keep that fire burning all night long
And we burn, burn, burn
So i keep that fire burning all night long
Keep that fire burning all night long
Keep that fire burning all night long

And it keeps us warm
Yes it keeps us warm
Yes it keeps us warm
So we, burn, burn, burn
Until the break of dawn
Track Name: Medicine Man
Baby if you’re feeling down
Let me be your medicine man

Got the cure for all your aches
Got some pills for your heartbreak
You got worries I’ll take them all away
Got the calm before the storm
Got the heat to keep you warm
You got burning embers, I’ve got the flame

Baby if you’re feeling down
Let me be your medicine man

I’m the yearning inside your soul
I’m the pin in your voodoo doll
You got magic that science just can’t explain
I’m the power of suggestion
I’m the word that you can’t mention
And bay, you know my name

So if you’re feeling down
Let me be your medicine man

So if you’re feeling down
Let me be your medicine man

Baby I can read your fortune
We’ve been written since time began
So you better make your mind up soon, and

Let me be your medicine
Let me be your medicine
Let me be your medicine man

Oh, this ain’t no smoke and mirrors
No placebos, no sweet sugar pills
Believe it, cause baby this is real
Got that healing that you can feel
Deep down in your soul

Let me be your doctor
Got a prescription for you baby
Got some sweet medicine for you

Baby if you’re feeling down and out
Let me be your medicine man
Track Name: Dream
Staring out into nothing
Hoping for a brand new day
I dream of change but it ain’t coming
So I’m dreaming my life away

Chased by fate and I keep running
And Lord knows I’m afraid
Fight the good fight and I sure ain’t winning
So I’m dreaming my life away

yes I know, yes I know,
That a change is gonna come my way
Yes I know, yes I know
That a change is gonna come my way

So I dream, dream, dream
Oh I dream, dream, dream
Oh I’m dreaming my life away

I know the words but I just ain’t singing
Can’t think of what to say
Robbed of speech, my head is spinning
So I’m dreaming my life away.

And I know, yes I know,
That a change is gonna come my way
Yes I know, yes I know
That a change is gonna come my way
Yes I know, that a change is gonna come
It’s gonna come my way, yes it will

So I dream, dream, dream
Yes I Dream, dream, dream
Oh I’m dreaming my life away
Track Name: Lord Tell Me When
A storm is coming
Can’t you feel it raging on and on
Keep on running
But you just can’t get away from what you’ve done
Can’t feed your soul on the black gold
That you sold it for
Will the wells that you drill
Quench your thirst or will
The poison turn to ash in your mouth

Lord tell me when
Lord tell me when
When will we learn
When will we learn
That money can’t buy, money can’t buy back
Money can’t buy back
The world that we’ve burned
The world that we’ve burned

A storm is coming
And pretty soon we’ll all be drowning in the flood
Unless we start realizing
The storm ain’t raging in the clouds above
Won’t raise your hand to help no man
But you’ll raise a gun
And if you could wash all the guilt from your hands
Pretty soon we’d be drowning in blood

Lord tell me when
Lord tell me when
When will we learn
When will we learn
That money can’t buy, money can’t buy back
Money can’t buy back
The world that we’ve burned
The world that we’ve burned

Mr business man, you’re standing at the storm front
Sailing a ship that you don’t know how to steer
Powered by profit, but you don’t heed the only
Prophet that you need to hear
Mr tax man, you’re taking all my money
Can’t afford to pay my bills
And while you’re at it, why don’t you remind everybody
To take the medication that makes them ill

Tell me when
Lord tell me when
When will we learn
When will we learn
That money can’t buy, money can’t buy back
Money can’t buy back
The world that we’ve burned
The world that we’ve burned
This world’s gonna burn
When will we learn
That you’ll burn, burn, burn, burn
That money can’t buy, money can’t buy back
Money can’t buy back
This world’s gonna burn
This world’s gonna burn
But we’ve got a change on the way
Track Name: Redemption City
Well, i’ve got one foot on the platform
Got the other on the train
Got me a one way ticket to redemption
I ain’t ever going back again

Just like a traveling man
You know i carry a heavy load
Got me a suitcase full of burden
And a lead weight on my soul

And i said break those chains
Cast aside your pity
Got a one way ticket
To redemption
I’ve got a one way ticket
To redemption 1 2 3 4

Well, there’s a lamp on every corner
And the streets are paved with gold
Said, there’s a lamp on every corner
And the streets are paved with gold
I’m gonna rest my weary head
And pacify my soul

And i said break those chains
Cast aside your pity
Got a one way ticket
To redemption
I’ve got a one way ticket
To redemption city
Track Name: One Drink
Head is pounding
Mouth is dry
Woke up this morning
Wailing why, oh why
Did I have that extra drink
Why did I have two more
And hell, three drinks after that
I wasn’t keeping score

Pour me
1 drink for my sorrows
1 drink for my sins
1 drink to let the devil out
1 more drink to keep him in
1 drink for my sorrows
1 drink for my sins
1 drink to let the devil out
1 more drink to keep him in

I said I wouldn’t do it
Swore never again
But never’s such an ugly word
When the whiskey’s free my friend
Hair of the dog that bit you
They say that’s the only cure
But that mean old dog bit me good and hard
So I better drink some more

Pour me
1 drink for my sorrows
1 drink for my sins
1 drink to let the devil out
1 more drink to keep him in
1 drink for my sorrows
1 drink for my sins
1 drink to let the devil out
1 more drink to keep him in

One more drink and then I’ll quit
I’m growing sick and tired of it
That’s what I say when I’m at home
But at the bar i don’t give a …
Moan and groan, fuss and fight
When I’m not drinking I don’t feel quite right
Just two more steps along the street
Mr Barman, won’t you make my night

Pour me
1 drink for my sorrows
1 drink for my sins
1 drink to let the devil out
1 more drink to keep him in
1 drink for my sorrows
1 drink for my sins
1 drink to let the devil out
1 more drink to keep him in
1 drink for my sorrows
1 drink for my sins
1 drink to let the devil out
1 more drink to keep him in
1 drink for my sorrows
1 drink for my sins
1 drink to let the devil out
1 more drink to keep him in

That’s what I need
Track Name: I Gave It All Away
I was lost inside
Deaf, dumb and blind
When I gave it all away

I was out of line
And so full of pride
When I gave it all away

I was so confused
Wrecked from abuse
When I gave it all away

I could not refuse
I had nothing left to lose
So I gave it all away

I felt the pressure everyday
I tried to take on all the blame
Now I never need to explain
I just call out on your name

I tried to take on all the blame
I felt the pressure everyday
Now I never need to explain
I just call out on your name

And the clouds did part
And love filled my heart
When I gave it all away

And the sun did shine
When I made up my mind
And gave it all away
Yes I gave it all away
Yes I gave it all away
