    All Alright

    Made me grow
    Then you cut me down
    A north wind on the garden growing
    You made me you were mine then you changed your mind
    Now I'm lost as a feather in a hurricane
    There's no way to measure
    How far I am from ok
    Ok let me tell ya

    There's no good reason why I can't move on
    I lay my heart on these tracks
    Your train comes along
    And it was all alright
    Now it's all all wrong
    That's just how it goes when you're gone

    You may not realize
    All the lies at the time
    But the truth will find you
    The storm is gonna come
    Gonna wash you away like Sodom and Gomorra

    There's no good reason why we can't move on
    I lay my heart on these tracks
    Your train comes along
    And it was all alright
    Now it's all all wrong
    That's just how it goes when youíre wrong

    Go round in circles like an old golden band
    As cold as the pillow by your empty night stand
    Then something comes over me and I lose my head
    I guess God did not make me a one-woman man
    I'd have a lot to give if I still gave a damn
    That's just how it goes when youíre wrong

    It was all alright
    Now it's all all wrong
    That's just how it goes when youíre gone

    And it was all alright
    Now it's all all wrong
    And that's just how it goes when youíre gone
    When you're gone
    When youíre long, long gone

    Let It Rain

    Maybe Iím wounded
    The pain it is passing
    Can you hold back the show back for a while
    Beneath the hat that Iím wearing
    The storms are all brewing
    And baby itís time to go on
    The structure is holding
    And the wood it is cracking
    And the thoughts are all starting to fall
    And thereís more to say than whatís been said
    And people are climbing the walls

    Let it rain let it pour
    Let these skeletons darken my door
    Lay the past in the graveyard
    With things that canít hold me no more
    Breathe in deep let it out
    Wash the bitterness out of your mouth
    Thereís no room left for darkness
    When youíre filled with the light it comes out

    The truth hurts the worst
    So you might as well face it
    So the slate can again be wiped clean
    Stand on the shore of tomorrowís horizon
    Let music set you free

    Let it rain let it pour
    Let these skeletons darken my door
    Lay the past in the graveyard
    With things that canít hold me no more
    Breathe in deep let it out
    Wash the bitterness out of your mouth
    Thereís no room left for darkness
    When youíre filled with the light it comes out

    Itís a call to all fighters all sinners and thieves,
    Fill their ears with the music that sets their hearts free
    I smash these strings Ďtil my fingers bleed
    Lay down all your burdens and sing back to me

    Let it rain let it pour
    Let these skeletons darken my door
    Lay the past in the graveyard
    With things that canít hold me no more
    Breathe in deep let it out
    Wash the bitterness out of your mouth
    Thereís no room left for darkness
    When youíre filled with the light
    Thereís no room left for darkness babe
    Thereís no room left for darkness
    When youíre filled with the light it comes out

    The Muse

    As I sit on the edge of this never made bed
    Old guitar in my lap a new tune in my head
    There she stands in the doorway just brushiní her hair
    Itís my beautiful muse in her underwear

    And if I was thinkiní Iíd be thinkiní thank God whoever you are
    For the muse and this old guitar
    Times like these so sweet and so true
    Thinkinís the last thing that you wanna do

    As I sit on the end of this dirty old bar
    Tryiní to work some things out and not gettiní too far
    And I drown out the voices that are keepiní me down
    Thereís a muse all alone on the other side of town

    And if I was thinkiní Iíd be thinkiní thank God whoever you are
    For all the whiskey in this dirty old bar
    Times like these so sad but so true
    Thinkinís the last thing that you wanna do
    Thinkinís the last thing that you wanna do

    As I sit on the bed in this hospital room
    Sheddiní a tear for the bride and groom
    The tiniest voice starts to bellow and cry
    Itís my finest work yet if today I should die
    And if I was thinkiní Iíd be thinkiní thank God whoever you are
    For the muse and the miracle right here in my arms

    Times like these so sweet and so true
    Thinkinís the last thing that you wanna do
    Thinkinís the last thing that you wanna do
    Thinkinís the last thing that you wanna do

    Day For The Dead

    I see them rise from beneath the ground
    Life was lost but now itís found
    The ghosts want something
    To take their turn to dance around their stone
    Work their fingers to the bone
    Hold onto nothing

    Day for the dead to dance among the living
    Day for the dead to dance among the living

    We find forgiveness for the wrong weíve done
    Watch the dying of the day another setting sun
    We find redemption in the love that weíve won
    Just a little company until our work is done

    Day for the dead to dance among the living
    Day for the dead to dance among the living

    Who says you canít go back?
    Who says you canít go back, go back to where you started from?
    Who says you canít go back?
    Who says you canít go back, go back to where you started from?
    Who says you canít go back?
    The moon falls on the river Stix
    The maníll meet you there
    Coins lay on your eyes just to pay his fare
    Moon falls on the river Stix
    The maníll meet you there
    Coins lay on your eyes just to pay his fare
    Day for the dead to dance among the living

    Day for the dead to dance among the living
    Day for the dead to dance among the living
