SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING NEW, SOMETHING BORROWED
...AND SOME BLUES

live - something old

Magic Every Moment

I awoke this morning to a shattering sound
And I went downstairs and found these shards of glass strewn all around
There upon the floor I found this poor broken dove
And it made me realize how very fragile is this life that we so love

I came back up to bed and I held you so tight
And I prayed up to the Father, oh I prayed with all my might
That He'd always keep you with me, that He'd always keep you safe
And when I went dowstairs I found that dove had somehow up and flown away

(Chorus)
There's a magic every moment
There's a miracles each day
There's a magic every moment
Oh won't you let the music play
Oh won't you let the music play

On a high and windy island I was gazing out to sea
When a long forgotten feeling came and took control of me
It was then the clouds burst open and the sun came pouring through
When it hit those dancing waters in an instant all eternity I knew

There's so much we take for granted -- there's so much we never say
We get caught up in the motion of just a living day to day
We are fettered to the future, we are prisoners of the past
And we never seem to notice 'til our lives have finally
Slipped right through our grasp

(Chorus)

You can see forever in a single drop of dew
You can see that same forever if you look down deep inside of you
There's a spark of the creator in every living thing
He respects me when I work but He so loves me when I sing

(Repeat Chorus Twice)

Songbird Written by Jesse Colin Young

The Innocent Age

Capture the moment, carry the day
Stay with the chase as long as you may
Follow the dreamer, the fool and the sage
Back to the days of the innocent age
Storybook endings never appear
They're just someone's way of leading us here
Waiting for wisdom to open the cage
We forged in the fires of the innocent age

(Chorus)
Back at the start it was easy to see
No one to own to, nowhere to be
Deep in the heartlands a sad memory calls to me

Fretful horizons, worrisome skies
Tearful misgivings burning your eyes
Yearnings unanswered, reckon the wage you pay
To recapture the innocent age

(Chorus)

Fretful horizons, worrisome skies
Tearful misgivings burning your eyes
Yearnings unanswered, reckon the wage you pay
To recapture the innocent age

As The Raven Flies

I see the raven's made her nest in your eyes
She's got you thinking that her love is a prize
And you'll go under from the wave of her lies
As the raven flies...as the raven flies

She'll bring you stecrets that just never sound true
She'll bring you secrets that were never meant for you
And just as you come round she'll send you back through
She's in love with you...she's in love with you

Darker, darker
Don't let her talk her way into you
Lonely, lonely
You know she's only no good for you
Darker, darker
Don't let her talk her way into you
Lonely, lonely
You know she's only no good for you

I see the raven's made her nest in your eyes
She's got you thinking that her love is a prize
And you'll go under from the wave of her lies
As the raven flies...as the raven flies
As the raven flies...as the raven flies

Hard To Say

Lucky at love, well maybe so
Still a lot of things you'll never know
Like why each time the sky begins to snow you cry
You're faithful to her in your careless way
And so you miss her when she's far away
And every time you think you've got it straight you fall

You face the future with a weary past
Those dreams you banked upon are fading fast
You know you love her but it may not last you fear
It's never easy and it's never clear
Who's to navigate and who's to steer
And so you flounder drifting ever near the rocks

(Chorus)
It's hard to say where love went wrong
It's hard to say just when (It's so hard to say)
It's hard to walk away from love
It may never come again

You do your best to keep your hand in play
And try to keep those lonesome blues at bay
You think you're winning but
It's hard to say sometimes

(Chorus)

Lucky at love, well maybe so
There's still a lot of things you'll never know
Like why each time the sky begins to snow you cry
You cry...oh you still have to cry

Make Love Stay

Now that we love
Now that the lonely nights are over
How do we make love stay
Now that we know
The fire can burn bright or merely smolder
How do we keep it from dying away

Elusive as dreams barely remembered in the morning
Love like a phantom flies
But held in the heart it pales like the empty smile adorning
A statue with sightless eyes

(Chorus)
Moments fleet taste sweet within the rapture
When precious flesh is greedily consumed
But mystery is a thing not easily captured
And once deceased not easily exhumed

Now that we love
Now that the lonely nights are over
How do we make love stay

(Chorus)

Now that we love
Look at the moonless night and tell me
How do we make love stay

Changing Horses

Changing horses in the middle of a stream
Gets you wet and sometimes cold
Changing faces in the middle of a dream gets you old
Oh, gets you old

Looking farther than you'll ever hope to see
Takes you places you don't know
You search for someone you can't ever hope to be
Still you go
Oh, still you go

Don't you think it's kind of sad to say
Don't you think it's gonna change
Makes you think you'll have to stay inside for a while

Changing horses in the middle of a stream
Gets you wet and sometimes cold
Changing faces in the middle of a dream gets you old
Oh gets you old...gets you old... gets you old...gets you old

Looking For A Lady

Looking for a lady
I'm looking for a lady to change my night to day
Looking for a lady
I'm looking for a lady to chase my blues away

(Chorus)
Well, I have a few in mind but none in particular
I have had them before but nothing that was for sure

And I'm in no position to barter
And I'm in no condition to play the martyr
And I'm sadder certainly but I'm smarter
And I find myself...

Looking for a lady
I'm looking for a lady to share my empty bed
Looking for a lady
I'm looking for a lady to soothe my aching head

(Chorus)

And my feelings have grown rigid as a wooden post
And my love is like a curtain that has been drawn closed
And my life just isn't going the way I thought it was supposed to
And I'm crying and I find myself
Looking for a lady
I'm looking for a lady to change my night to day

You Better Think Twice Written by Jim Messina

Don't Let That Sun Go Down

Old Chief Joseph gazed with a tearful eye
Stood on a mountain top watching his people die
Laid down his rags and his weapons of war and cried
From this day forever I will fight no more
Whoa brother, don't let that sun go down
Whoa brother, don't let that sun go down

Queen of England lying at death's dark door
Threw down her crown, she said I won't need this anymore
With terminal breath, she raised up a cry, she said
All my possessions for one moment of time
Whoa mother, don't let that sun go down
Whoa mother, don't let that sun go down

What you gonna do - man of flesh and bone
What you gonna say when it's your turn to go home
Walk down a road, hear that cold wind moan
You know in the end there's one walk
You're gonna walk alone

Christ at Calvary, nailed to his wooden tower
Writhing in agony, facing the final hour
When the sky turned as red as the color of blood he cried out
Father forgive them for they know not what
Whoa Father, don't let that sun go down
Whoa Father, don't let that sun go down

What you gonna do - man of flesh and bone
What you gonna say when it's your turn to go home
When you walk down the road
Hear that cold wind moan (moan, moan, moan, moan)
You know in the end there's one walk
You're gonna walk alone
You know in the end there's one walk
You're gonna walk alone

Statesboro Blues Written by Willie McTell

Blow Wind Blow Written by McKinley Morgenfield (Muddy Waters)

She Don't Look Back

She's got a way of getting so inside you
That you think she's gonna steal your soul
She's got a way of making sure that you can't let go
She's got a trail of broken hearts behind her
Like a shadow where no shadow's cast
I ain't the first one and I doubt that I'll be the last
Too long --Too late
You're wrong to ever think she'd wait...

She don't look back
Oh-oh Oh-oh, she don't look back
Oh-oh Oh-oh, she don't look back
Oh-oh Oh-oh, the lady don't look back
And when she goes she's gone

You can never tell just what she's after
You can never read it in her eyes
And in her laughter there's no hint of compromise
You can stare into the fire forever
You can squeeze a stone until it bleeds
But you will never find the kind of a love she needs
Too long --too late
You're wrong to think she'd wait

She don't look back
Oh-oh Oh-oh, she don't look back
Oh-oh Oh-oh, she don't look back
Oh-oh Oh-oh, she don't look back
And when she goes she's gone

She don't look back
She don't look back
She don't look back
She don't look back
She don't look back
She don't look back

She don't look back
She don't look back
She don't look back
She don't look back

Here Comes The Sun Written by George Harrison
