Track Name: Say Hello!
I believe in the power of love
it's why I feel so lonely.
Its got its claws me greater than any drug
I've ever had the glory of knowing.
Believe in the power of love,
I've seen it happen to me.
That witchy woman put a drop on my tongue
and I never felt so holy.

When you get tossed in the dead sea
say hello to the devil for me.
When the world goes dark and you can't see
say hello to the devil for me.

It started a long time back
when I was living in some other dream.
I caught the fever in my life past
so tell me honey why shouldn't we
get down to it?
I've heard about you,
your rats and your black cat
and you'll be heading down that river oh so soon.

When you get there could you
put in a word for me?

When you hang by the oak tree
say hello to the devil for me.
When your limbs sway in the soft breeze
say hello to the devil for me.

Forgive me if I fall off track
or if I seem to be a bit out of line,
but I've been waiting like a snake in a trap
for the day I'd make contact with the other side.
So get on with it,
everybody's got a story to tell.
I can't seem to get you off my mind,
the lines that you fed must have been some kind of spell.

Do you believe in the power of love?
Will you walk through hell beside me?
I believe in the power of love.
I feel it deep with every heartbeat.

When you get tossed in the dead sea
say hello to the devil for me.
When your limbs sway in the soft breeze
say hello to the devil for me.
Track Name: Sea of Change
I won't ever find a way home
looking backwards as I go.

Bathe in a sea of change.
Give yourself away
and start running strange.

Hey! My eyes are blown open wide
now I see the reason for which to fight.
Hey! My eyes are blown open wide
now I see the sun and I see the sky.

See through the rolling snow
not a thing you need
when your heart is whole.

Hey! My eyes are blown open wide
now I see the reason for which to fight.
Hey! My eyes are blown open wide
now I see the sun and I see the sky.
Track Name: Back Roads
Somebody open my eyes
I must be dreaming
I can't believe that
I'm all alone out here
chasing a hole in the sky
haunted by demons
begging for freedom
from a head full of doubt and fear

Hit like a cannonball
so I broke with the morning sun
didn't know what to do but run
to break my fall

Oh, oh bottle of sorrow take me home
back where I know the roads
I got all mixed up looking for a ghost
but she was never home

We've got the wisdom of years
can you help me reason
in the Garden of Eden
we all fight for air
pumping the pain through the gears
of greed, oh, crushing out weak bones
to dust and despair

Nothing but open roads
can't seem to make a move
I can't even lift my shoes
forget my soul

Oh, oh bottle of sorrow take me home
back where I know the roads
I got all mixed up looking for a ghost
but she was never home
Now You're all I've got so I hold you close
won't ever let you go
Oh, oh bottle I think I'm losing hope
won't you just take me home

Oh, oh bottle of sorrow take me home
Track Name: Hey, Josephine
Hey Josephine won't you come away with me?
Ain't got no car, but I got all this money.
There ain't no time to be fussin' around
make up your mind girl and we can skip town.

All my life
I've been looking for a break in the sky
to ease my mind
but it's only the ground that I feel tremblin'.
Pick up your feet it's time for ramblin'.
Honey, we got to go.

Green and white
seem to dictate the laws of the heart
I don't know why
but I'll dress you in diamonds and velvet
take all you want just put your arms around me.

Climb out of your window.
I'm out of my head, girl.
Come down, crawl out.

Hey, Josephine won't you lay down with me?
That Spanish fly, he caught my eye and told me
just what to say and where to go to make you scream.
Oh, Josephine won't you put it on me.

Turn out your light
and dance like silhouettes with me tonight.
Some shadows are my best companions.
They keep their mouths shut and never abandon.
Won't you be my ghost?

Say you'll be mine
and I'll always be true I'll walk that line.
Or do I need to break, break, break my way in
and take, take, take you from him?

Climb out of your window.
I'm out of my head, girl.
Come down, crawl out.

Hey, Josephine won't you run out with me?
I ain't got eyes for any other, can't you see?
Oh, tell me girl what will it be? What will it be?
There won't be time come tomorrow.

Climb out of your window.
I'm out of my head, girl.
Come down, crawl out.
Track Name: Blowing Kisses
I saw the devil blowing kisses at my baby
and she was winking back at him.
Oh lordy, I saw the devil blowing kisses at my baby
and it's something that I can't forget.

I've been known to tell a lie or two in my time
long as that's the truth you won't believe.
Cross my hear and drown my soul in cheap wine
until the figures blur and their love I won't see.

I saw the devil blowing kisses at my baby
and she was winking back at him.
Oh lordy, I saw the devil blowing kisses at my baby
and it's something that I can't forget.
