Track Name: Piedmont Cemetery - Promiscuous Bisexuals (John Lentz)
lentz
12 Piedmont Cemetery by the promiscuous bisexuals
in a sudden hail of sparks in an unfamiliar night in a whisper
crumbled walls appear in ghostly magic light
though analysis came knocking echoes danced inside your heart
but the moment they all stopped you felt the train begin and i

would not bet against you bet the house on me
does your full house beat my inside straight girl oh no
we just might get lucky we just might

can you hear the slow notes ringing out like a lazy wisp of smoke
like the world just rent asunder like the time you overload
and they catch you dripping out your very salty liquid soul
but remember them you cannot but like nothing else you’ll know

and i would not bet against you bet the house on me
does your full house beat my inside straight girl
oh no we just might get lucky we just might

if you see me standing tonight by a table don’t get too close to me
if you feel that the odds are tipping in your favor
don’t lay down on me

now i wasn’t quite too clear was it the parked cop or the saab
and she never grabbed the wheel because she
knew she could not rock
so i led her by the hand into that spooky headstone mall
and before the night was over ‘know we we revived them all
and i

would not bet against you bet the house on me
does your full house beat my inside straight girl
oh no we just might get lucky
we just might --what is your favorite card.

i always told you you were money
even when that sun didn’t come through and when that sun
that sun didn’t come through
i swear forgiven before i ever knew

if love inspires you like you want it to if love lays you holding ground trying to keep your face up
in the face of time in the earth going round

the world keeps turning but you know it ain’t even out
and this road goes on like winter coming to the spring and i’m flying so high
and there’s no one left to blame
hey hey! hey.

5 Time We Were Lovers by sighs matter
there’s a wind that moves across your face through the years I still can feel your grace
as I’m drawn something I can’t erase god I love you
more than ever baby now that you’re gone and i see through
like i never had it so going on
the stars arrive at nothing they have to leave some time
the stars arrive – isn’t it time
we were lovers isn’t it time we tried it’s time we were lovers
i know that it’s time that we tried
i’ll never go to runnymede but in the summer wind the time was
right for you and me to run a way run a way run away
the stars arrive at nothing they have to leave some time
the stars arrive – isn’t it time
we were lovers isn’t it time we tried it’s time we were lovers
no no no
i know we’ll never be again
i think you know me i feel understood i’m coming right for you
i’m coming for good this recipe you have so long prepared
will nourish you now the more that you share it

in the years that move across your face though the years i still can feel your grace
in the years that move in the years that move

after summer came the heavens opened up and took you way from me took you away from me
dancing by the morning with your eyes closed
you can’t believe it’s too
wonder when the world comes by with moon shine night
and the heavens on you
after the dream has spoken are you left with something more than
who you had been who you had been yeah
times less than time lay me down one word i’m going to come around to you return to me my saturn dream
my saturn dream

sing me tonight our love song now can you feel what you know
here i stand before you heart never so full
sing me tonight our love song now can you feel?

in the wind that moves across your face
through the years I still can feel your grace
but i’m alone so differently

do you wonder
what would happen if you showed your hand all the monsters you’ve performed for will be clapping their hands
the stars arrive at nothing they have to leave some time
the stars arrive – isn’t it time?
Track Name: Pluto Rubicon (John Lentz) - What Words Can't Say
lentz
7 What Words Can’t Say by pluto rubicon
can you hold on can you hold on to me am i just kidding myself
i turn to you you’re walking out you’re laughing at the door as the words come out unconsciously imperfectly

don’t find me here in the morning with those sighs
you can’t find me here in your contagious mind
can’t you see me smile with every cell i got
but thee be alone without you without you

won’t you come with me dream all your dreams
find out you’re not so alone
it’s not the way that you look at me
it’s not the taste of kisses sugar sweet
it’s not the colors of the day
that make you feel
what words can’t say

well i love love love you yes i do
i had one more way to go sugar had one more beer
she said is there gas in the car
get on out of here and she said
well i love love love you yes i do
what do you look like what do you wanna be
what do you have time to look for
what do you have time to breathe
it’s not the scene no it’s not the same no it’s not the
scene i see in your eyes
it ain’t the wonder how you try to slay me you can slay me
why’d you try to slay me anyway
oh look inside a vibe you call don’t wait to come alive
got to get your way got to get away
come away to the side of a woman
come away to the side of the world
come a way
to the side
of the wolf

i had one more way to go sugar had one more beer she said is there gas in the car
get on out of here and she said
well i love love love you yes i do ::::

once you were my woman once i was your love
we once were together it seemed we were one
and sighed we together and sighed we till morn
we dreamed of forever but ne’er was it born

for every lover for every time for every new one
another goodbye
with nary the wise heart the looking glass soul
in search of forgiveness on our voyage home

if you believe love holds together if for this you’re willing to die come hold me close to you
i got some news tonight
if you are not my one true lover if any other can deliver the thrill
if we are all the same
is it just a game of will

there was a time for indecision too many reasons to decide
and then you feel the truth
you know that they were right

there was a time for every lover it seemed there was a love for every time
would you be my friend? would you walk me on down the line...
down the line.
Track Name: Bachelor Sojourn (John Lentz) - Love is a Story
lentz / donahue
1 Love is a Story bachelor sojourn
if love is a teacher i need a scholarship i got a 4.0 but that won’t do if love is teacher
i need a scholarship i won’t believe it till i hear it from you
it’s a trying trying to reach out something you think you see in somebody else
something you hope that you connect to
with the disconnect in your self
you ask me if i need you i understand there’s more to say
with the words in the way...
i been trying trying to reach you but the heavens seem the
only way through will you never see or and believe that absolutes are not always true but you’re looking at her so deeply
further than you did before least it feels that way
felt like that way the last time
and it felt like that way every
single time before

you ask me if i need you i understand it’s hard to say
with the words in the way...
i don’t’ know if i’m ever gonna be leaving what you call the truth what you call the story
that i should be in i don’t know why why i should believe in what you are saying
is the reason oh
it’s the reason mmm it’s the reason
that you’re here that you love
you gotta land on the gear that you get send a pool of water
let us try to forget
i’m lonely i’m alone
they said you never found a way to go
destined to wander on all alone
they said you never found a place to go
content to wander on all alone
how come you never found a way to go
there’s a timeless timeless wavelength we were lovers but we
never were to me so good your soul like church
my heart your dream your love my world
you ask me if i need you i understand it’s wrong to say hah!
i been trying trying to reach you but the heavens seem the only way through
it’s a mystery you can’t believe till you realize the truth
love is a teacher love is a teacher love is the teacher.

2 Live Forever by all-time whoas
last night in my insomnia i swear i caught a glimpse
tempted as i was to close my eyes i couldn’t squint
all my body tightened up and the blood rushed to my head
she opened up her wings and smiled and this is what she said

she said, “you ain’t gonna live forever you ain’t never gonna figure it out
you can’t always be certain that you heart is full of doubt
and even if i could i wouldn’t tell you what to say
when the one you had given up on starts to come your way”

she told me of the ancient ways and how to listen in
she said that i would find a woman i could love a gain
i said i appreciate the info thanks for stopping by
but is there any way you could have her here sometime before i die

she said, “you ain’t gonna live forever you ain’t never gonna figure it out
you can’t always be certain that you heart is full of doubt
and even if i could i wouldn’t tell you what to say
when the one you had given up on starts to come your way”
so if one magic silent night an angel comes to you do not be surprised if with her
she does bring the truth
she said, “you ain’t gonna live forever you ain’t never gonna figure it out you can’t always be certain that you heart is full of doubt

and even if i could i wouldn’t tell you what to say when the one you had given up on
starts to come your way will you know what to say?”
Track Name: Move Anatomy (John Lentz) - Girl on a Plane
lentz
4 Girl on a Plane by move anatomy
she headed for home i got on the freeway her smile still with me her words clear as day
have i got this rhythm down is she 30,000 feet off the ground
right now
i showed her the view from beneath this skin i begged her to chew on my neck again
what she doesn’t know might take years to explain might take the man in the mirror
might take the girl on the plane girl on the plane

answers you are seeking don’t even know you are
the bells that you are ringing the old soul in your heart
the meaning that lingers in the earth and in the rain
might take the man in the mirror might take the girl on the plane girl on the plane
touch you with my hands feel you in my heart make you understand this one time love is ours

the water drops on her shouldertops ain’t helping my resolve
the warm wind underneath my feet
i just might come right off i don’t know how the forest could have stood there for the trees
but i don’t think that i can stand to not have you next to me
for all our precious pain all our wasted days we can’t deny one another
for what is it we long for
what is it we ache for
why do we need one another

she got ripples on her dimples two different color socks
power windows heatup seats and an old time analog clock all right
how much works’ worth fighting for all the sweat and toil
all the rebel-willed advisors
seek to slowly spoil the bonds that you have labored so
to render fast
they dissolve like cooking oil burn up in a flash

and you alone will sing these words words sing alone with you
and harmony’s the sweetest sound no matter the tune
these intervals at carnival the flyer did tame
and legend says he never did
taxi
again.

8 One Child Listen by lords of irony
say you want a god to lift you o’er these roads
i say that that’s not odd they say that god will know
how to hold your heart and listen
reacquaint yourself with what’s been missing
how to hold you down and bring a smile
how to make everything seem all right for a while for a while

is this all there is then what to make of it
since we’re sitting ‘round i’ll write some stories down
of a magic man who feels us
of a woman that’ll only reveal us
of imagined places if you will
of another time can’t wait until wait until

is there a place is there a time for you

after all you’ve done all you’ve seen all you’ve known
there stands the one like a dream like your own
and when she smiles the rainbows collide
and she wants all of yours and you want all of mine
there’ll be one child listen
say you want a god to lift you o’er these roads
i say that that’s not odd they say that god will know
they say that god will know they say that god will know
they say that god’ll know

i know you’ll believe in things you cannot see like my little song
you cannot prove it wrong

it’s when you decide in the dead of the night
on a path that is clear by your side
it all reconciles down the ways and the miles
and the twists and the turns of your life

there’ll be one child listen
is there a place
is there a time
for you.

13 Find Those Eyes by aging wells
she was born hot in the weight of the summer
i was waiting here when they brought her home
should have realized a lot then momma
should have known better than to be alone

here sit i in the dead of night i pay the price but where will i
find those eyes

with the candle in her eye well you never can tell
it’s like two coins down that wishing well
cold of her lover and tired she’d grown
it’s hard to see the light so far from home far from home far from home

here sit i in the dead of night i look inside but where will i
find those eyes

she got away from you she got away from you

tell me a story about your life want me to reenact it
tell me a story about your life want me to reenact it
but you’re not gonna tell me no you’re not gonna tell me
till after we start to fight about it can’t figure it out is it a comeon
good intentions something missing baby

like a rapid in a river that must be shot like a saint to a sinner that can’t be bought
like the 3 a.m. that’s your best friend like the night that ain’t never gonna come again come again come again

here sit i in the dead of night i pay the price
but where will i find those eyes

well the days passed by like a sentence for a lie and the guitars
sang their song
whole life time trying just to get it right
a whole life time ain’t that long

in the mirror in the morning in the car ride in
in the key when he unlocked the door
in the moments when he closed his eyes and thought my god
i’m really growing old find those eyes.

14 Time to Kill by CGC
it’s probably in the way that your mother talked to you
she was often home early and there wasn’t nothing else to do
it’s hard enough to be someone that you don’t even know quite yet
oftentimes it’s just as hard to be someone
that somebody else regrets and i

i could make up anything that you like even i could lay down by your side
when the morning comes there’s still something to do
it’s almost like paperwork it ain’t never through

each time gets a little bit easier cause there’s still the groove from where it was
each time gets a little bit easier but it’s probably something somebody else does
probably something someone else does well

you always understand everything that changes
after most of it happens after most of your life is on the pages
of some book you can never find to fill
ain’t we all got time to kill at least we think so

i could make up anything you like even i could lay down by your side
when the morning comes there’s still something to do it’s almost like paperwork it’s never through

you always understand everything that changes after most of it happens
after most of your life is on the pages of some
book you can never find to fill
ain’t we all got
time
to kill
