Track Name: Literacy of Love
'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
Track Name: Human Song
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

Rama and Sita full of that lovin desire
Hearts ablaze like a forest on fire
Such passion makes the mountains swoon
A union of the sun and moon oh yeah

But chasin' you is what I do
You and me around the tree run circles for eternity oh yeah

You've got a tiger for me to now
Yes your eyes are making quite the scene

Well all of this shakti got me speaking in lightning
Every time I open up my mouth I feel the tension tightening
Do not fight what must come through
The universe likes lovin' too oh yeah

And from the looks that you're floating my way
You've got a tiger for me to now
Yes your eyes are making quite the scene

But every cell inside me can't stop trembling
You know a force like this makes galaxies
Some spirit hath come over me, oh yeah

And from the looks that you're floating my way
You've got a tiger for me to now
Yes your eyes are making quite the scene
Sweet Jesus be my Magdalene oh yeah

Like lava buried deep beneath the ocean
The slightest touch my set off my explosion
So go ahead and light my fuse
Red ribbons of the deepest hue of yeah

My love my love my love,
Is a lion for you

You've got a tiger for me to now
Yes your eyes are making quite the scene
Sweet Jesus be my Magdalene oh yeah
Track Name: Spring
'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
Track Name: Winter
'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
Track Name: What is Goodbye?
'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
Track Name: Livin in Love
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
