Someone pray for the weather, someone make this rain go away Cause I know you're somewhere out there I miss you every single day There will be an ocean There will be a shining sea There will be a river wide Oh, but nothing that could keep you far from me If I thought that you were hurting or lost, or even a little lonely I would shine like no tomorrow and guide you right back to me Chorus I know it may sound simple The way I've laid it out to be but when I go to sleep I know it's you dreaming of me Chorus

Bitter Song Someone has stepped on my heart for the billionth time I should get up, stand up and face it Before a part of me dies I could go on drinking this whiskey all night long But the words just get bitter and I'm tired of a bitter song If you see me alone don't be afraid, I'll be OK 'Cause it's been a wild ride, I'll be alright, this time Downtown, I look around and see that everything is clear What a mess you had made dragging me down for all Those years Now the sun shines brighter and the clouds are whiter And the wind is picking up speed Pushing me forward, I've no more delusions to feed If you see me alone don't be afraid, I'll be OK 'Cause it's been a wild ride, I'll be alright, this time So c'mon, c'mon, c'mon...Bring it on C'mon, 'cause I won't sing the bitter song If you see me alone don't be afraid, I'll be OK 'Cause it's been a wild ride, I'll be alright this time If you see me tonight, I don't want to fight I'm feeling alright 'Cause it's been a wild ride, I'll be alright, this time Well alright, alright, alright, alright

This Could Be Our Home There’s an oak tree leaning toward the creek And a willow is dead on its’ side There’s a perfect place for a garden Where somebody has already tried Look there, there’s a part of a porch That we can build up from We just need some nails and paint It’s all burned out from the sun This could be our home, baby, this could be our home This could be our home, baby, this could be our home We could cut down all of the barbed wire and put up some kind of a gate You know you’ve gotta’ shed some blood When you want to lock up your love and tie in your fate Can you feel it baby, how the planets are aligned? I hope you wrote the number down When we rolled past that sign This could be our home, baby, this could be our home This could be our home, baby, this could be our home All we need is just a little love and This could be our home, baby, this could be our home In the heart of this land There is a lost and a broken soul It’s looking for love, baby And it’s dying for a home This could be our home, baby, this could be our home This could be our home, baby, this could be our home All we need is just a little love and This could be our home, baby, this could be our home

Mean Old Town You can put me in a box, take away my air Tell me to get busy, then give me nothing to do in there That's how this town is starting to feel Like I've got the bicycle but someone else has the wheel You can turn out the light, leave me in the dark I used to be able to make my own spark This town is like soda that's just gone flat Tell me what kind of person would stick around for that? I wasn't looking for this ache But now it's here and something has got to change I don't suppose you know the way To a brand new heart and a change of pace? You can lock me in a cage, force me to sing but if I'm just a bird, oh this town is my broken wing, 'Cause I've been trying to leave but something has got my hand You know this mean old town just won't let me change my plan I wasn't looking for this ache But now it's here and something has got to change I don't suppose you know the way To a brand new heart and a change of pace? You can fill me with love, build me a big, big home And shower me with money But I'm still, I'm still going to go 'Cause this town is like acid, & I'm feeling sugar sweet So I best blow 'outta here before I get those cold, cold feet I wasn't looking for this ache But now it's here and something has got to change I don't suppose you know the way To a brand new heart and a change of pace?

HERE ON THE GROUND Stop me if you know this one But of the stars, the moon and sun, No one lights me up like you Starry night and a bottle of rye, Tip one back, here’s mud in our eyes No one warms me up like you FROM HERE ON THE GROUND THE STARS FALL, THEY FALL ENDLESSLY BACK HERE AT HOME NOTHING IS HOW IT’S SUPPOSED TO BE, EXCEPT FOR YOU BEING HERE WITH ME Make a noise if you know this one But when the whole world comes undone No one mends me up like you Stitch by stitch, you make it all right One sweet kiss, it’s all out of sight, No one heals me up like you HERE ON THE GROUND THE STARS FALL, THEY FALL ENDLESSLY BACK HERE AT HOME NOTHING IS HOW IT’S SUPPOSED TO BE, EXCEPT FOR YOU BEING HERE WITH ME
