Time Time 05:01
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

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

Medicine Man 03:19
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

Dream 05:20
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

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

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

One Drink 03:24
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

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
