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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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
