'Literacy of Love' Jack was an attorney practicing Mississippi Law He put away more crooks and cronies than a courtroom ever saw He earned his reputation by judging people's lives He found the flaws in all his friends, his family and his wife Till his lover up and left him she said, 'Honey this is the end' He cried inside that courtroom, his last remaining friend Then the judge asked old Jack to introduce the next case He stared into that jury's eyes and the courtroom heard him say They remember to this day he said There's something to love about everyone, it don't matter who you are Junkie on the street, cop on the beat, politician in the white house seat There's something to love about everyone, if you dare to take a look So before you judge another by their cover You better read the book Casey was a soldier in the 45th brigade Collecting stripes and medals for putting people in their grave Until one day he came upon the enemy in the sun A commie and his little girl, she had just turned one Now Casey was a killer, but kill he would no more He laid his gun and uniform at the foot of the general's door And they said he was a coward and brought his country shame But that boy Casey cleared his throat and the general heard him say Bravely he explained he said There's something to love about everyone, it don't matter who you are Junkie on the street, cop on the beat, politician in the white house seat There's something to love about everyone, if you dare to take a look So before you judge another by their cover You better read the book Place your attention on the sunshine, and sunshine's what you'll get Focus on those rainclouds and watch the streets get wet The world is your canvas and your mind is like a brush Seek and ye shall, will it be gold or rust? An old man feeds the homeless every Sunday of the week He invites them up to his mansion for potatoes and collard greens His neighbors think he's crazy and they say he's lost his mind But he just smiles and knows that love is revealed to all in time Old Jack is doing fine, he serves another slice of cherry pie There's something to love about everyone, it don't matter who you are Junkie on the street, cop on the beat, politician in the white house seat There's something to love about everyone, if you dare to take a look So before you judge another by their cover You better read the book

Human Song 04:43
Human Song Feeling sad, feeling low, so down Feeling in need of some healing Looking at the masters of the world Like goodness gracious, how did you do it? Feeling raw, feeling human all around Feeling a lack of foundation Staring at some curtains on the wall While you await an explanation Oh to be human, human Daring to feel Does life on Earth get any more real? Oh it's a human, human Road that we're on Out joy and tears compose one human song Yeah, a human song Feeling better than I did a breath ago Looking back up at the mountain Reaffirming all I'm working towards And finding the tools to assist me, and lift me Steady tumble down a riverbed of stones Holding my breath to hold something Smoothing out my edges as I roll Spinning my soul a perfect circle Oh to be human, human Battered and bruised There ain't no path that I'd rather choose Oh it's a human, human Road that we take From soul asleep to heart and mind awake Yeah, mind awake Oh sometimes breathing can be Hey, the hardest thing When I find it tough to believe Someone like me could be worthy Trying hard to see The goodness swirling all around me The same Love that crowns me Human, human Finding our worth Learning to soar while bound to the Earth Oh it's a human, human Story we tell Of angels under the magic of a human spell Yeah, a human spell © Noah Proudfoot 2016

Spring 04:34
'Spring' Yellow the color of sun, yellow yellow yellow on everyone The color of sun Green the color of grass, green green green all over your feet The color of leaves It's cold and it's warm out here Snowfall from the past meets with sunshine from tomorrow So soft and so young out here Where all life is ripe and ripe is the livin' Who? Asks the owl, grrr, answers the bear And you know what sound the whip-poor-will makes When no one else is there I clear my head, close my eyes, let my whole body sigh and just Breath the scene Nothing says welcome home like the Spring, Spring, Spring Brown the color of bark, brown brown on the ground It's clinging to the trees, blending with the leaves Red the color of clay, red red red marks the end of your day As light fades away It's old and it's new out here, faces from the past Talk with faces from tomorrow Blue-gray, blue-gray, the color of the waterfall spray Who? Asks the owl, grrr, answers the bear And you know what sound the whip-poor-will makes When no one else is there I clear my head, close my eyes, let my whole body sigh and just Breath the scene Nothing says welcome home like the Spring, Spring, Spring Must you go so soon? Oh Spring, could you teach me how to bloom Oh Spring, phoenix from wilted winter Oh Spring, she's knocking at my window I clear my head, close my eyes, let my whole body sigh and just Breath the scene Nothing says welcome home like the Spring, Spring, Spring

Winter 06:37
'Winter' Winter, winter is comin' Leaving no place to hide Winter, winter is comin' Better put the cattle inside Winter, winter is comin' Heavy on the heels of Fall Winter, winter is comin' Listen to the raven call Winter, winter is comin' Storm clouds fill the sky Winter, winter is comin' Stack the chestnut high Winter, winter is comin' Sinners make thy peace Winter, winter is comin' The father don't make no backdoor deals Now I'm a hardworking man do you understand? Feel the callouses on my hands But no amount of sweat and blood Could ever build the life we had So I write her songs when the days are long And leave them by the tree But no amount of poems can rewrite this tragedy Winter, winter is comin' Coming in the dark of night Winter, winter is comin' Lock the deadbolt tight Winter, winter is comin' Coming for the young and old Winter, winter is comin' Followers cross your weary souls Now I'm a well tempered man do you understand? Mild and civilized But I curse the icy hand that stole my darling bride I'm God-fearing too in that Sunday pew I know my bible page for page But no amount of praying Is gonna raise her from that grave Winter, winter is comin' Blowing the bluebird south Winter, winter is comin' Blowing the smile right off my mouth Winter, winter is comin' To cover the world in haze Winter, winter is comin' I won't see sun for a hundred days Now I'm sharp as a tack got a barrel of facts But one question haunts my mind Who in all of God's great kingdom want to take a poor farmer's wife? So I sip red wine in the evening time and shine to help me sleep But no amount of drinking's gonna save me from these dreams Winter, winter is comin' Coming like a burning train Winter, winter is comin' The wild winds and the freezing rain Winter, winter is comin' Coming if you're ready or not Winter, winter is comin' Coming down like the hand of God

'What is Goodbye? I pen a phrase I write a tune I find a stage and I sing for you I question my motives I question my heart I question the forces unseen That brought us together and pulled us apart The moon is but a touch of white Holding but a cup of light She's covered in darkness now We call it new I find myself wishing Sometimes my face was invisible too What is goodbye babe? A word to fill the space? High above the reach of time A goodbye has no place I could be spending too much time Searching for an honest line I pray it comes easy Often it won't The truth is I love you Even if time makes you think that I don't What is goodbye babe? A sad and lonely sound? High above the reach of time A goodbye can't be found Once we stood as mountains, donning crowns of snow Our faces worn and weathered, our speech was soft and low Our roots cannot be severed, our ties cannot be cut And I promise you, our book cannot be shut What is goodbye babe? A common spell we cast? High above the reach of time A goodbye cannot last

Livin in Love I tried chasing bags of gold I truly thought it could fill my soul But then I saw you dancing laughing in the rain You said you had no home nor a penny to your name Livin in love, got the whole world smiling Livin in love, am I walking or flying? Living in love, at one with creation Living in love, such a sweet vibration I'm mesmerized by the way that you live You give till you ain't got nothing and still you give You offer me all your friendship wrapped up in a smile Who knew that a perfect stranger could love me like a child Livin in love, got the whole world smiling Livin in love, am I walking or flying? Living in love, at one with creation Living in love, such a sweet vibration Can't stop beaming, won't stop dreaming I wish to share this love I'm feeling Taking me higher, spread it like a fire Everyday feeling more inspired Living in Love One day my life will pass away And all of the things I own will have to stay I hope to look upon a full and joyous life There's only one thing I can carry on the flight Livin in love, got the whole world smiling Livin in love, am I walking or flying? Living in love, at one with creation Living in love, such a sweet vibration Can't stop beaming, won't stop dreaming I wish to share this love I'm feeling Taking me higher, spread it like a fire Everyday feeling more inspired
