Track Name: Cosmic Queen
Where did you go now
My Cosmic Queen
Tell me again Love
Now what this all means
Heaven knows
Where I’ll find you again
In the desert night sky
Or the prairie winds

Oh somewhere across the great divide
Over the tallest mountain side
Hidden deep within your eyes
Lies
Redemption for a soul like mine

I’ve grown hungry
For your spiritual ways
In your ice blue river babe
Baptise me to grace
Oh now come wash me clean
Resurrect my faith
And from the white silk summit babe
I will scream your name

Oh somewhere across the great divide
Over the tallest mountain side
Hidden deep within your eyes
Lies
Redemption for a soul like mine
Track Name: Ain't No Wonder
She said babe I love you
It don't get better then this
Northeast Texas sunsets
And your sweet kiss
I turned my eyes
And I beheld
It would seem as if I had
Escaped from Hell

Well there ain't no wonder in my mind
Why Johnny found a way to walk the line
We all know the outlaw dies lonesome, cold, and blue
So I'm thinkin' I'd much rather grow old with you

I said love I've never
Seen beauty before tonight
And It dawned on me
That I want you for the rest of my life
As I laid you down, gentle as a man can do
You said honey, now I need to know
So shoot me straight and true

I said there ain't no wonder in my mind
Why Johnny found a way to walk the line
We all know the outlaw dies lonesome, cold, and blue
So I'm thinkin' I'd much rather grow old with you
Track Name: The Fighter, The Poet
It's ok if you need
To let go and just breathe
Ain't no one gonna judge you
That don't already
You've been a fighter
Wagin' war for so long
Ain't no shame in recognizin'
When it's time to unload

Believe in me
And I will unburden you
Seek me
Bask in the mornin' dew
Darkness
has no further hold on you
Be free
And I will carry us thorugh

Bound by a body
Two halves of a whole
The Fighter, The Poet
The young, and the old
And I won't let you die
But this weight that you hold
It's breakin 'our backs
And it's time to unload

Believe in me
And I will unburden you
Seek me
Bask in the mornin' dew
Darkness
has no further hold on you
Be free
And I will carry us thorugh

Oh since God left us here
To die all alone
I will be your savior
I'll carry you home(x2)


Believe in me
And I will unburden you
Seek me
Bask in the mornin' dew
Darkness
has no further hold on you
Be free
And I will carry us thorugh
Track Name: I Tried
It's a hard hard thing for me to do
Wipe my tears away
And say goodbye to you
Ain't nothin in this world gon make me feel
Any better bout
The end of me and you

So I'll take all of your things
Throw em out into the yard
Pile em up light a match
And say goodbye
I'll watch the broken promises
Of memories yet made
Slowly wander off into
This Texas sky

Oh it’s hard to say goodbye
But at least I can say I tried

Long and hard I searched the world for you
You were everything I dreamed of
And more
Just as fast as you showed up honey you cut out
I feel like passin out wasted on the floor

So I'll take all of your things
Throw em out into the yard
Pile em up light a match
And say goodbye
I'll watch the broken promises
Of memories yet made
Slowly wander off into
This Texas sky

Oh it’s hard to say goodbye
But at least I can say I tried
Track Name: Waitin' in the Sound
Come all ye weary and worn
Come lay your burdens down
Now don't be shy my friend
Ain't nothin' but love goin' around

So hop out your seat and come on down
Salvation is waitin' in the sound

Because tonight I'm gonna free your soul
Even if we have to play pretend
I ain't no god but for tonight I absolve you of your sins
Now go forth and shine a little light within
Shine a little light within

Come all ye broken and torn
Come down to the stage shed your tear
Just throw your hands way up high
And watch all your troubles disappear

So hop out your seat and come on down
Salvation is waitin' in the sound

Because tonight I'm gonna free your soul
Even if we have to play pretend
I ain't no god but for tonight I absolve you of your sins
Now go forth and shine a little light within
Shine a little light within
