Be My Guide 03:22
I sail away on the ocean of your tenderness Your breath fills my sails Forgives my humanness The love we make, equal to the love we give, oh darling, it’s so sweet. But the war gets under my skin I can’t believe we’re still killing But when I ask for peace, I see the way, I try to live this simple truth every day Cause you are the only one Who can see everything You were the only one - The only one So take this love - drink it up It’s all you've got The only reason that life is worth living is This love, oh, is this love And even these troubled times - When I can't see through the dark Even though you feel so far away In the night, you’re the moonshine Lighting my way Oh you are the only one who can see everything You are the only one - The only one So take this love, drink it up it’s all you’ve got The sweetest wine, the whitest bride, oh be my guide Oh love, be my guide - Be my guide Every single way - Every single day Love, be my guide

Alexander 04:00
We used to ride out to the ocean every Friday night Just to get a glimpse of something bigger than ourselves. We’d walk for hours along the sandy beach, skipping stones Trying to find a little bit of life within these shells. When the tide was low we’d walk out for a mile or so Just to get some water between our toes. Alexander, I knew your father well Many moons ago. Alexander… We talked about you once or twice, thought we were looking into your eyes But we were really just talking to ourselves And I was crazy talking babies when I could barley even See the sides of my own cell So when he asked, I wasn’t ready, I said so So he gave me the rest of my life And drove off to Alabama To make your mother his wife Alexander… I knew your father well Many moons ago… And I’ve known you for so long I’ve loved you since before you were born I've loved you for so long And I've known you since before you were born Alexander

Rolling thunder, Howling wind A long ride down a dusty road There was a hunger, an aching mother Screaming for you to come home You’ve always come back to life But not this time, no not this time You’ve found the hole in the sky She’s watched you burn, she's watched you burn She's watched you fly, she's watched you tumble from the sky Just cause he turned, your life adjourned So much for that dusty road She said, “If I wasn’t absolutely sure There was love in the world I’d have no idea where to go from here.” You’ve always come back to life But not this time, no not this time You’ve found the hole in the sky No, not this time, not this time You’ve found the hole in the sky

Amazed 01:50
I am amazed at what is praised and all the myriad of things people trade in for their wings I know that you've a blame to bear But your nature isn't blind There is something wrong in your mind...

Call Me 03:25
I’ve seen you a thousand times You caught my eye And I wanna get to know you better So won’t you call me sometime Like an old-fashioned telephone, put in a dime, mama Say you’ll be mine Just for tonight, oh I just wanna see you tonight. I’ve got nothing better to do & I know something better is you... So just call me If you’re thinking of me too. It’s been a long and lonely night But I lit a fire I want to be sitting here beside you So won’t you come for me daddy Ease my troubled mind Say you’ll be mine Just for tonight, oh I just wanna see you tonight. I’ve got nothing better to do & I know something better is you... So just call me Say you’ll be mine Just for tonight, oh I just wanna see you tonight. I’ve got nothing better to do & I know something better is you... So just call me If you’re thinking of me too.
