Track Name: Let Me Be Your Wheel
Let Me Be Your Wheel

I couldn’t sleep last night I couldn’t close my eyes
I just asked myself what happened to my life

Let me be, let me be, ,et me be your wheel
And rock it to roll me onto you field

All I want from you this time
To have your heart change your mind

Sun rose this morning yeah you’d gone away
I kept on loving you, loving just the same

All I want from you this time
Have your heart change your mind

Let me be, let me be, let me be your wheel
And rock it to roll it onto you field

Good time treatments babe are what you really need from me
Track Name: Lost in the City
Lost In The City

I’ve been lost in the city
For too long I can’t think anymore
I’ve been lost in the city for too long

And I’m wondering, wondering now
Through the red to the green to the brown
I’ve been lost in the city for to long

And the next time you see me
Don’t think nothing will be the same
I got four days to love you and explain

And I’m weeping and bending around
Like a willow removed from the ground
I been lost in the city she don’t know she don’t know

Everybody wants to star
Sittin on top of the world apart
It’ ain t me, it ain’t me in my heart
I gotta love you still

It’s 3 in the morning and I can’t even close my eyes
I been lost in the city for too long
And I’m wondering, wondering now
From the red to the green to the brown
I’ve been lost in the city she don’t know
Track Name: Feast of Ida
Feast of Ida

A hundred miles of empty sand craving company
Open up a strangers’ hand find out what they need
It gets too hard to keep the faith with humanity
You just turn away

We like our anonymity when riding on the train
Restaurants and shopping malls are pretty much the same
Credit cards and internet spare from a real connect
You turn away

And then you turn away from the Feast of Ida

Wielding our technology from our own cocoon
We cannot trust humanity it says so on the news
Addicted to the oil, soul of the soil
And if the phone don’t work we fall apart

Ida is a Goddess, She’s throwing us a feast
So we can get to know other human beings
Eating sleeping arguing love making and dying saying
I love you

Then you turn away from the feast of Ida

I don’t wanna feel lonely
I don’t wanna be alone
Track Name: Long Distance Moan
Long Distance Moan

I’m talking to my old lonely self
Since I one for roaded at the bar for help
I want you back home long distance moan
I’ll even turn old lies into truth
Now I realize, I don’t know what to do
Nights with you still haunt me

When I get so lonesome I jump on the telephone
Asking all your friends if they know where you’ve gone
Oh come home long distance moan
I’ll even turn old lies into truth
Now I realize I don’t know what to do
Nights with you still haunt me

Been mistreated, I mistreated you
I mistreated you, now I’m lost
What can I do

I’ve been walking every night thinking of times with you
My feet are getting so sore I can hardly wear my shoes
Won’t you come home long distance moan
I’ll even turn old lies into truth
Now I realize I don’t know what to do
Nights with you still haunt me
Track Name: Little By Little
Little By Little

Love has gone ahead of me, I’ve been left behind
There is no one in my arms only on my mind
There are people like you and me – oh we like to dream
About the life we couldn’t see and what we used to be
As if I’m dyin’ little by little
I want my time little by little

And I got the mojo working
Like a sonar searching
For a soul deserving love

I don’t like complaining , folks who talk the trash
If you gotta have some fun man spend the cash
It don’t make sense they can’t make peace when there is a war
When things go wrong so wrong with you it hurts me even more
And if I’m dyin little by little
I want more time little by little

And I got the mojo working
Like a sonar searching
Track Name: Worry No More
Worry No More

Cold wind blowing
Blow my baby back to me
And if it wasn’t for the bad luck I’d have no luck at all
But I ain’t gonna worry no more

Love me, I want you - to
Love me, I want you - to love
‘Cause I ain’t gonna worry no more

Monday I’m going away
Southbound need a change
My home is on the water ‘cause I ain’t never had no ground
And I’m running on the first wind hoping for a second

Love me I want you - to
Love me I want you – to love
‘Cause I ain’t gonna worry no more

Careless love, look how you put me down
Standing over me till I’m finish dying
When I refuse anything but the best
I often get it

Love me
Track Name: Love Machine
Love Machine

You say you wanna be you wanna be somewhere else
You don’t like that feeling that you’re stoned
Thought it as a need just a need and nothing else
But everywhere you look you lost control

It’s taken over
It’s taken charge this crazy thing
Turning all that fuss into a love machine

Don’t you wanna get high
Don’t you wanna get high
Don’t you wanna be a lover in paradise
Don’t you wanna be seen
Don’t you wanna believe
Every day is brighter in a love machine

You ever have that day that you wanna run away
Run away from the life that you lead
Then for reason everything becomes okay
Reasons don’t matter it seems
Track Name: Good Man Feeling Bad
Good Man Feelin’ Bad

Will you come if I call
Come and see me or not at all
Oh this this ain’t nothing but a good man feeling bad

I keep on knocking and can’t come in
You press my button get my bell to ring
I call you sugar or some other thing
Won’t you come and see me, don’t leave me hanging
Oh this this ain’t nothing but a good man feeling bad

Say you will, say you will
Say you will say you won’t
Take me anywhere take me anywhere
(nowhere that I know)

I find romance with nor regret
If you can take it I can take the chance
Oh this this ain’t nothing but a good man feeling bad

I’ll tell you one thing, I’ll tell you two
I wanna be there with you
Take me anywhere as long as it’s
Nowhere that I know
Track Name: This Is the Way the World Ends
This is The Way the World Ends

You know what they say
There’s just one way out but I ain’t going that way

And on that very day she came and took my spirit away
I could’ve had religion but I didn’t pray
Thank God for that

‘Cause if you ever loved that woman
You’d know what it is to feel pain
If you ever loved that woman
You be saying …”more pain”

You know what they say
About how love is gambled away

This is the way the world ends my friend
Staring upward at the sky
And all the planets and the entire void
And the universe is on the run
