ALRIGHT ALRIGHT

I done told your Momma, you ain’t comin’ home no more
(Home no more, home no more)
I done told your Momma, you ain’t comin’ home no more
(Home no more, home no more)
So don’t set her a plate, cause she’s sure to be late

I don’t see nothing wrong if you wanna sing along
Music makes me feel alright (alright, alright, alright, alright)
I don’t see nothing wrong if you wanna sing a long
Music makes me feel alright (alright, alright, alright, alright)

I done told your Poppa, you ain’t comin’ home no more
(Home no more, home no more)
I done told your Poppa, you ain’t comin’ home no more
(Home no more, home no more)
So don’t leave on the porch light, cause there ain’t gonna be no fight

I don’t see nothing wrong if you wanna sing along
Music makes me feel alright (alright, alright, alright, alright)
I don’t see nothing wrong if you wanna sing a long
Music makes me feel alright (alright, alright, alright, alright)

I don’t see nothing wrong if you wanna sing along
Cause music makes me feel alright (alright, alright, alright, alright)

I done told the preacher you ain’t holding back no more
(No, no more, no, no more)
I done told the preacher you ain’t holding back no more
(No, no more, no, no more)
Don’t expect her to confess cause you don’t wanna hear the rest
Now take off your dress

CHOURS
(Alright)

Track Name: Hold On
HOLD ON

It’s the tenth of January and there’s nothing ordinary
‘bout the feelings that I’m feeling for you
The sun is on the sign like reflections in my mind
Once in a while there’s something new
I’m gonna hold on to you, hold on honey

It’s the twelfth of February and I guess it’s kinda scary
The changes that we’re both going through
The snow is on the ledge and my heart is on the edge
Every bit of you I want a little bit more
I’m gonna hold on to you for sure, for sure honey

We gotta whole lotta, whole lotta holding on to do, we gotta
Whole lotta, whole lotta holding on to do, we gotta
Whole lotta, whole lotta holding on to do
Whole lotta, whole lotta holding on
Hold on now, hold on, hold on, hold on

Well there’s March and April, May the birth of yesterday
And things are always right where they are
The bud is on the vine and my spirit’s feeling fine
Every bit of you I want a little bit more
I’m gonna hold on to you for sure, for sure honey

We gotta whole lotta, whole lotta holding on to do, we gotta
Whole lotta, whole lotta holding on to do, we gotta
Whole lotta, whole lotta holding on to do
Whole lotta, whole lotta holding on
Hold on now

Well the summer came and went, how did we spend the rent
We had a lotta laughs and now we’re falling
Oh how I remember the slumber of December
When it come around again we’ll start anew
I’m gonna hold on to every part of you, every part of you, every part of you, every part of you

CHORUS

Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on honey
Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on, hold on
Why don’t you hold on honey?

Track Name: Super Cool
SUPER COOL

I met your mother like no other she’s one of a kind
Her guru said she’s doing fine
Who would know better?

I met your sister gonna miss her when she goes back home
Sing a song for the King and the Queen
You know what I mean

I met your father I won’t bother trying to out weigh him
He will win
Yes I know better

Everyone I meet is neat
Everyone I meet is so me
Everyone I meet is neat
Everyone I meet is super cool

I met your neighbor as a favor could you sing her a song
It won’t take too long
She wrote you a letter

I met your friend who will lend you a helping hand
Just to closer stand
To your sweater

I met your fan old man still wants to be a rock star
He didn’t get too far
We’re gonna do better

Everyone I meet is neat
Everyone I meet is so me
Everyone I meet is neat
Everyone I meet is super cool

Track Name: To Get By
TO GET BY

I lost 10 pounds and it’s all cause I’m starved
Ain’t got knowledge enough to feed my thoughts
I lost my spark and it’s all cause I’m starved
I’m working hard but it’s hardly enough to get by
To get by

Imagination is cool, Imagination

I lost possession of my fingers and my toes, lost my grip ya’ll
Don’t know where it comes from or where it goes
And I, I lost my mark and my ink has run dry, lost my high
I’m searching low and it’s harder to know how to get by
How to get by

Imagination is cool, Imagination

I don’t mean no imposition
But my head is filled with indecision
Through this clouded intuition
I keep my humble disposition
To get by

I lost my breath if I rest then I’ll miss my train
We don’t care about the shortage of air to our right brain, it’s that plain
I learned the faster you rise the quicker you fall, it’s your call
You can embrace every leg of the race, it’s worth a try

Meditation is cool, Educate me

I don’t mean no imposition
But my head is filled with indecision
Through this clouded intuition
I keep my humble disposition

Track Name: It's Calling
IT’S CALLING

I can’t help it
The way I ache for you girl
I can’t knock it
I shiver and I shake for you girl

Maybe we never had chance
But I gotta glance at the sky and this is why

Did you see the moon tonight Darlin’
Did you see the moon tonight Darlin’
Was it easy for you to avoid it’s calling
It’s calling you

I can’t escape it
The chills and the thrills you give me
I can’t forsake it
Cause all I think about is you girl

Maybe we never had chance
But I gotta glance at the sky and this is why

Did you see the moon tonight Darlin’
Did you see the moon tonight Darlin’
Was it easy for you to avoid it’s calling
It’s calling you

No I’m not gonna fight it not when it’s brightest
I can’t burn anymore

Did you see the moon tonight Darlin’
Did you see the moon tonight it’s balling
Was it easy for you to avoid it’s calling, it’s calling, it’s calling you
Did you see the moon tonight it’s balling
It’s calling you

Track Name: Believe It
BELIEVE IT

Can you believe what the papers are saying?
Can you believe that the people are staying?
Can you believe anything at all?
Cause I can’t believe it
No I can’t believe it

Are you deceived by the numbers, they’re dying?
Are you deceived when your hands are the why and
Can you see anything at all?
Cause I’m not believing
No I’m not believing

Sunday morning and I just can’t read anymore
I can’t believe that it’s right to even the score
Not anymore

Are you relieved when you lay your head down?
Are you relieved when you don’t hear a sound?
Do you make believe everything’s ok?
I can’t believe it
No I can’t believe it

Sunday morning and I can’t believe what we’ve done
We heed no warning and we just hold the smoking gun
What have we won?

I can’t believe it
I can’t believe it
Can you believe it?
I can’t believe it
I can’t believe it
Can you believe it?

Sunday morning and I just can’t wait anymore
Can you believe it can you believe it no, no, no
Sunday morning and I just can’t wait anymore
I can’t believe it no I can’t believe it no, no, no
Sunday morning and I just can’t wait anymore
Can you believe it can you believe it no, no, no
Sunday morning and I just can’t wait anymore
I can’t believe it, I can’t believe it no, no, no
Sunday morning and I just can’t wait anymore

Track Name: Tell Me
TELL ME

I got the picture
It’s loud and clear
I won’t make you scream it inside my ear

I took a photo
Inside my eye
I’ll only replay
The first goodbye

I don’t know why it hurts so much
I don’t know why it means so much to me
Tell me what’s going on and I’ll believe it
Tell me what’s wrong and what should I feel

There’s no mistaken
What you are willing to do
The tenderness is unfulfilling
You had a sense of
What was missing
And dropped your guard
To tempt my wishing

I don’t know why it hurts so much
I don’t know why it means so much to me
Tell me what’s going on and I’ll believe it
Tell me what’s wrong what’s bringing you down

Tell me what’s bringing you down (4X)

I got the message
You never said
Your lack of tension
Echoes inside my head

I wasn’t clear
Before we went
There’s no question now
What’s been spent

CHORUS

Tell me what’s bringing you down (6X)
Won’t you please, won’t you please tell me?
Tell me, why won’t you tell me?
Tell me

Track Name: Be My Moon
BE MY MOON

Be my moon, be my moon
Come on Darlin’ be my moon
Well the North Star she’s a shining but the moon is shy to show
When the clouds are all that covers the evening sky so blue
Be my moon, be my moon
Come on Darlin’ be my moon

Well I never been to Alabama but I hear the sun sets fine
Just a city boy from the country where the moon ain’t hard to find
When I finally get to Nashville I’ll be howlin’ all the time
Until then stay with me girl
Come on Darlin’ be my moon

Be my moon, be my moon
Come on Darlin’ be my moon
Well the North Star she’s a shining but the moon is shy to show
When the clouds are all that covers the evening sky so blue
Be my moon, be my moon
Come on Darlin’ be my moon

Well I never been down the Mississippi and followed that moon light
But I’ve seen her face reflected on the Hudson River side
When I get to Radio City and the women all know my name
Would you be my moon, be my moon
Come on Darlin’ be my moon

Be my moon, be my moon
Come on Darlin’ be my moon
Well the North Star she’s a shining and the moon is sure to show
Well the clouds can’t last forever and the night’s only so long
So would you be my moon, be my moon
Through the morning and the afternoon

Track Name: Miles To Go
MILES TO GO

I was born an old black man
And my momma raised me vegetarian
I have sworn to sing the blues
Yeah, I play the game but I often lose
Can you help me Krishna bless my walking shoes
Bless my walking shoes

My heart is healthy, my bones are strong
My soul’s expanding and my hair is long
I can see heaven for what it’s worth
Only two ways to get there, either death or birth
Can you help me Jesus walk upon this earth
Walk upon this earth

I’ve come so far down life’s crooked road
I’ve still got miles and mile to go
I’ve come so far down life’s crooked road
I’ve still got miles and miles to go

I’ve been through the darkness, I’ve come from the deep
I am finally waking from a thirty-year sleep
Can you help me Buddha keep the ground on my feet
Keep the ground on my feet

I’ve come so far down life’s crooked road
I’ve still got miles and mile to go
I’ve come so far down life’s crooked road
I’ve still got miles and miles to go

Track Name: Raise The Son
RAISE THE SON

I watched you open-eyed
Held you till you held me too
I just couldn’t ask for more

You listened to my every word
Took it in and then I heard
The meaning behind the man

How simple it is to hold the son
With the hands of the father
How simple it is to hold the son
Planted by the mother
How simple it is to hold the son
Guided by each other

We watched the day, we held the night
You grew to laugh and gently rise
My heart was never lighter

We asked the day to give us sight
Let honesty be, we asked the night
To rock our souls to sleep

How simple it is to hold the son
With the hands of the father
How simple it is to hold the son
Planted by the mother
How simple it is to hold the son
Guided by each other
How simple it is

If you wanna raise the son it’s best to do it early dawn
He’ll be more inclined to the climb if the son is already rising, rising yeah

How simple it is to hold the son
With the hands of the father
How simple it is to hold the son
Planted by the mother
How simple it is to hold the son
Guided by each other
How simple it is to raise the son
