Track Name: Trouble, My Lord
Refrain:
I'm in TROUBLE MY LORD. Will I survive myself tonight?
I'm in TROUBLE, MY LORD. Can I survive myself?

Already been here and got out. (R)

Somehow I am full of doubt. (R)

What have I done to make this my fate? (R)

Find an unlocked door, then it's too late! (R)
Track Name: Have a Little Butter
Have your cake and eat it too.
Have a couple hours, see what we can do...
Nothing in the cupboard, nothing on the shelf...
HAVE A LITTLE BUTTER with your bread as well.

I really didn't mean to be arriving late
But she exploded on me like a jailbreak.
You only get one chance as far as I can tell.
HAVE A LITTLE BUTTER with your bread as well.

"If music be the food of Love, play on"
A man's gotta eat, even when you're gone.
I know I'm not gonna get cooking by myself
HAVE A LITTLE BUTTER with your bread as well.
Track Name: Whistlin'
Fall into a safe zone somewhere in my headphones
when I'm feeling alone

Singing in the shower, humming in my corn flakes
I wonder when my day will change keys

Heart-beating in my chest, rhythm in my footsteps
and I will leave the rest to your imagination

When I'm doing laundry I duet with the dryer
Ever since we met I have the Music back in me

Harriet, my Pet
harriet, my Sweet...
Track Name: How Nice
Your eyes are so deep and the world is asleep
when they are looking into mine

HOW NICE? So nice I want to stick around.

You have been so sweet while I'm eating my feet
and I still somehow step out of line

HOW NICE? So nice I'm going to stay around.

Just like a beach out in coffee country...
The Land of the Cocoa Bean...
Kiss me, you'll see what I mean!

HOW NICE? So nice I want to stick around.
Track Name: Over You
I hope that this letter finds you in good health
and I hope that these words find you at all
Because, after all, it's been a long time,
hasn't it?

And I'm doing so well...
If you could see me now...
if I could see you now...
No, I can't see you now.
I said that I was
I thought that I was
I promised I was
Swore that I was
OVER YOU
Track Name: So Much Better
When the drugs kick in, I'll find you.
Until then, let me remind you.
I'm in no shape, I can't compete.
Still I'm on my own two feet.

You don't have to be brave, just busy.

Surviving thirty years alone
I think I'll make it on my own now.
I've lost the one who kept me safe
and made me feel alive.
After all that I have done
how can I survive?

You don't have to be brave, just busy.
SO MUCH BETTER than Love.

It took a man to break my heart
From misery to work of Art

Take your heartache, turn it into Music.

You don't have to be brave, just busy.
SO MUCH BETTER than Love.
Track Name: Revival
You've been through worse than this before.
You've been through worse than this before.

I know I've got the power.

So you owe more than you can earn...
So you owe more than you can earn...

I know I've got the power.

So you owe more than you can earn...
You've been through worse than this before.
So your home is not your own...
You've been through this and worse before.
Alright.

I know I've got the power.
I know I've got the power.

People have the power.
You got the power.
I got the power.
I'm losing my...
I'm leaving my...
I'm quitting my...
Right now
Track Name: Lighthouse
I just blew out the candle that shone too long in my window.

I threw my matches out in the rain.
Now my view will never be the same.

I just blew out the candle that shone too long in my window.

And I have no idea where you are
But now I can see the the stars.

I just blew out the candle that shone too long in my window.

There is so much I've done that was wrong.
Oh, tell me how did I wait so long

That i just blew out the candle that shone too long in my window.
Track Name: Good-Bye, Mountains
GOOD BYE MOUNTAINS
You shelter me no more.
Hello, Blue Sky
If I was ever home
Despite compassion
that I discovered there
GOOD BYE MOUNTAINS
It's in these years I roam.

I roam like the wild dog that I can be
I roam while I am almost young
and almost free
I roam until I escape what I have done.
So...

GOOD BYE MOUNTAINS
You shelter me no more.
Hello, Blue Sky
If I was ever home
Despite compassion
that I discovered there
GOOD BYE MOUNTAINS
It's in these years I roam.

It's in these years I roam.
