Let the Blood Rush Out

Midday I lay
Here in the dark
Fever rages
Extinguish it won't
Will not cool down

Try to run
Try to hide
Can not as the danger
Steeps deep inside

Finally clear
What must come to be
Extreme but the risk is less
Than the damage already done......

So open up my heart
Let the blood rush out
Spill out what's left of you
So I can start anew

Hips Sway

Not the harsh sunshine
Cast soft dusk ambers instead
Brow furroughs not be shown
Let only clarity be read
Sway. Just sway

Close your eyes now
Sway
Let your mind wander now
Hips Sway
Let your mind wander
Hips Sway Sway

And like the road
That tells of no fatalities
Let me fool you one more time
Nievete travels smooth-Just fine
When you're with me
Sway Just sway

Sneed Powerful Woman

Sneed is a powerful woman
Cuz more love her
Than she could love back

We sit out on the porch
Laughin' at the stories
She does tell

She says Hmmmmm
Jesus will heal it all
She says Hmmmmm
It's our job to be strong

Pickin' cotton, depression,
death and poverty
As a black woman
This was her reality

But God is on her side she says
No need for despair

American Boy Come Sleep With Me

American Boy come sleep with me
Or at least come lay under the stars....boy
Time has been a good friend to us
But soon he will leave us wanting

American Boy have some faith
Some faith that all will be well....boy
Let's choose not to leave this place
Not run with hopes that our dreams will come true
Not run, run just to find
We keep on goin'

American Boy my heart is yours
But my mind...my mind is so weary
So tired and so weary, man
A jaded fool I've become,
Spirit broken, but continue to fight
Sold my soul, just to find....I'm still dying

Dying despite the things we're pursuing

Go Home Sister Snow

Snowy little girl with your eyes ice blue
Texas took your man and a side a pride too

You blaimed it on the heat
You blaimed it on the land
You shoulda been blaimin'
That no good cheatin' man

But go home sister snow
Go home sister snow
Go home where it drifts
And the wind does blow

Go home sister snow
Go home sister snow
Take your leave of this
Silly old Lone Star show

Well Texas burned you once
It ain't fair but its true

Hold On Lynette The Horses Are Coming

Lynette was a beautiful baby
A true joy to her ma and pa
Free from oriningal sin she was
The whole family was in awe

She was loved loved loved
She was loved loved loved

One day she woke with fever
There was snow and wind and cold
The car was stuck at the end of the drive
To the doctor they could not go

She was loved loved loved
She was loved loved loved

Quick hook-up the team and the sleigh
By horse she'll surely make it
Hold on Lynette the horses are coming
Let's take some time to say how much we love you

Are you Doin Alright?

I see you tryin'
To make each day a better day
But the world keeps draggin'
You down along the way

Get up
Get out
Hit the line
Don't be led astray
Don't let the team down
Though your dreams
Slowly slip away

Are ya' doin' alright?
Are ya' doin' ok?
I couldn't help but notice
You're havin' a really bad day

Well, I ain't nobody
I ain't no one to you

Sands Sift Between My Toes

If Fairy Dust could be sprinkled
Across the sands of time
It would undo all the harms I've done
To you and
To those and
Still to more of whom I do not know

But the fairies must have gone
Along with their magical dust
Instead of beaching under me
The sands drift over, around, and above

Grains gritting against my desperate pleas
I beg for them to take me
To the past
To the future
Unwilling, they say
It is here
Where I must stay
