SHE'S GONE AWAY

She is gone
Nowhere to be found
Believe me I have searched
And just as true hearts pound
My mistake
has caused mine to break
Believe me when I say
She's gone
She's gone away

~~~*Chorus*~~~
That little girl is gone
There's no time to grieve
Another is in need
Needs you desperately
Just as she is gone
Standing in her place
The fracture she became
Formed by what they've raised
Have to take a break
She's gone
She's gone away
~~*~~

He is here
And he has a chance
To have what they've denied
If you can turn your back
On the past
Not another glance
This time you have a say
He's here
She's gone away

~~~*Lyrical Bridge*~~~
Maybe we can find her 
Once this child has been saved
Fight to kill her demons 
In her mind where they now play
Right now you've got to focus
On the here and now today...
There's a baby who needs you
Because she has gone away
~~*~~

~~~*Chorus*~~~
That little girl is gone
There's no time to grieve
Another is in need
Needs you desperately
Just as she is gone
Standing in her place
The fracture she became
Formed by what they've raised
Have to take a break
She's gone
She's gone away
~~*~~

~~*Finale*~~
Hang on to your memories
Her sweetness and her smile
But right now open up your eyes...
She is a different person
And with her he's not safe
She's broken far too many times
~~~*~~~
Nothing more to say...
She's gone away
~~*~~

SUPERNATURAL

Brothers bound
Cursed or luck
Tortured minds 
Demon touched 
Chasing evil is the job
The right to life always the cause

Love so deep they'd trade their souls
Fix what's broken
Make it whole
Don't believe in everything you see
Or you're fractured for eternity

~~~*Chorus*~~~
A path to Hell 
The Horseman's rings
Demons wrapped in Angel wings
Blood suckers out to bleed you dry
Purgatory is the constant fight
Far too much collateral
Dealing with the supernatural
~~*~~

Fairy tales that come to life
Not the happily-ever-after kind
Fables you didn't think were true
Gonna make a dinner out of you

Citizens oblivious
Their stress is but a witches hex
How did the world end up this way
God's new digs can't be explained

~~~* Lyrical Bridge*~~~
You don't know what's out there
You're not sure what to believe
Those who do sure want a hero
With an Angel on their sleeve 
Is it fiction in the darkness
Or is the terror actual
You want someone in your corner
If it's supernatural
~~*~~ 

~~~*Chorus*~~~
A path to Hell 
The Horseman's rings
Demons wrapped in Angel wings
Blood suckers out to bleed you dry
Purgatory is the constant fight
Far too much collateral
When the job is supernatural
~~*~~

EXTENDED HANDS

I can't say 
I know the way 
You're feeling
Inside

Want to take 
Your inner pain 
That's stealing
Your smile

You're so brave 
Because you say
Don't worry
I'm fine

It's not true 
But I love you
I'll give you
Your time....       

~~~*Chorus*~~~
Time to feel, and time to heal, when you don't think you can
Time to start, mending the heart, fighting to understand
But if your road keeps on crumbling
And you're sinking in the sand
I pray you'll know, all along that road, there are extended hands
Palms up, fingers stretched, reaching to pull you close
Don't be afraid to grab one
When you need it the most
It's the love, He placed on earth
Family and Friends...
Our hands extend
~~*~~

I can't say 
Pain fades away
It's different
Each time

How you feel 
And what you do
I'm knowing
You'll cry

You're so brave
Because you say
Don't worry
I'm fine

It's not true
But I Love you
I'll give you
Your time.... 

~~~*Lyrical Bridge*~~~  
When it's hard for you
What to say and do
So difficult for us
The ice so thin
It barely holds
Something we dare not touch
Waiting on the banks
Family and Friends
Praying your hope hasn't ended
As I've said, please don't forget
With our loving hands extended

~~~*Chorus*~~~
Time to feel, and time to heal, when you don't think you can
Time to start, mending the heart, fighting to understand
But if your road keeps on crumbling
And you're sinking in the sand
I pray you'll know, all along that road, there are extended hands
Palms up, fingers stretched, reaching to pull you close
Don't be afraid to grab one
When you need it the most
It's the love, He placed on earth
Family and Friends...
Our hands extend
~~*~~

STORM CRAZY DAY

I picked a storm crazy day to come and see you
The fog won't thin, and the rain won't cease to fall

Yes, it's a turbulent day to come and see you
But Sister I am sure that you recall

~~~*Chorus*~~~
I'm not afraid of the highway
Even when it's difficult to see
I just keep my eye
Peeled on that yellow line
And pray for visibility
That's what I do
God sees me through
~~*~~

I picked a violent day to come and see you
But as my car is eating up the miles

In my mind's a special place
Where I always see your face

And Sister I can't help but smile
I don't hesitate
To head your way
Even on a storm crazy day
I mean it when I say
You take away
All the gray in a storm crazy day

&

~~~*Chorus*~~~
I'm not afraid of the highway
Even when it's difficult to see
I just keep my eye, peeled on that yellow line
And pray for visibility
That's what I do
God sees me through
~~*~~

~~~*Finale*~~~
Pulled into your drive
And I saw your smile
The tension it just fell away
I mean it when I say
You take away
All the gray in a storm crazy day...

SWEET LITTLE LULLABY ( Children's lyrics )

Sweet little Angel close your eyes
Listen to your lullaby
Of..

Building blocks and Tonka trucks
Teddy bears and rubber ducks
Kitty Cats of black and white
And puppy dogs with big brown eyes

Kites that float up in the clouds
Cotton candy and circus clowns
ABC's and 123's
Little red wagons and bumble bees

Paper planes that you will make
Laughing friends and birthday cakes

Sweet little _____ close your eyes
And listen to your lullaby
Of...

Froggies jumping in the pond
Hugs and kisses from Dad and Mom
Baby chickens on a farm
Little gray ponies and big red barns

Trees to climb and tire swings
Sunny days and birds that sing
A hill of dirt with "Hot wheels" cars
Boats on a lake and monkey bars

Choo choo trains going down the track
Cartoons, Kool-Aid, and jumping jacks
Trips to the zoo and fire trucks
A day at the park and lady bugs

Flowers covered with butterflies
Shining stars up in the sky
Angel kisses and a gentle touch
_____ Loves you, oh so much

My little _____  with closed eyes
Did you like your lullaby?
When tomorrow's at its end
I'll sing it to you once again

For now, just sleep with all my love
And that should comfort you...
Enough....
Mmmmm

WHERE DO WE GO? ( Children's lyrics )

There was a little lady bug flying through the sky
She saw a butterfly, and she said, "Hi, Hi!
Do you know where we go?"
And the butterfly said, "I don't know. I don't know!"

There was a baby ducky, floating on the pond
His best friend was a big green frog
He said to the frog, "Do you know where we go?"
And the froggy said, "I don't know. I don't know!"

There was a fluffy puppy, running on the farm
He ran in to the big red barn
He said to the horse, "Do you know where we go?"
And the Horsey said, "I don't know. I don't know!"

There was a little lamb, she was white as snow
She asked the pink piggy, "Do you know where we go?"
And the piggy said, "I don't know. I don't know!"

Well they all went together, the animals and bugs
they walked and flew through the rain and mud
the sun came out, and they all cheered
"We are here! We are here!"

It was a big party for one and all
From the cow so big, to the bug so small
They all laughed, cause now they know
This is where they had to go!

This is where they had to go!

LINCOLN COUNTY LINE

Lincoln County Line     
The desert in Nevada
Heat burns him alive
The night's still as stone...
oh... so dead and cold
Like the heart of the woman
Loved, but left behind

Here to heal himself
Tear her from his mind
Here to purge his heart
Lincoln County Line

Oh... renew this damaged soul..
Feed the pulse,  don't let it go....
From her hold he climbs
Lincoln County Line

Lincoln County Line     
The desert in Nevada
Heat burns him alive
The night's still as stone
Oh, so dead and cold
Like the heart of the woman
Loved, but left behind

Too young to give up life
So he trades with time
Grieves and comes back strong
From Lincoln County Line

JACKS ON THE SIDEWALK

Couldn't hear what they were saying 
I just know they talked 
I was playing jacks 
On the sidewalk

~~~*Chorus*~~~
A car flew around the corner 
I heard shots and screams
One raised his hands to Heaven
The other hit his knees
Like a slow motion movie 
Down the block
I was playing jacks
On the sidewalk
~~*~~

Couldn't see if they were bleeding
Waiting for the cops
I was playing jacks 
On the sidewalk

~~~*Lyrical Bridge*~~~
Indifferent to the Mayhem
Oblivion's my friend
Laughter's sweet, here on the streets
Always a sudden end
Maybe it is just a life of shock
I don't live in fear, but faith
While I pass the time, I play
Yeah, I'm just playing jacks 
On the sidewalk

~~~*Chorus*~~~
A car flew around the corner 
I heard shots and screams
One raised his hands to Heaven
The other hit his knees
Like a slow motion movie 
Down the block
I was playing jacks
On the sidewalk
~~*~~
