Shadowman 04:29
Waking up in the valley Thousand miles from home With the mist all around me Feeling I’m not alone In the twilight I see him Fading back from the past And I hear all his footsteps By the wind choreographed Who is the Shadowman, Shadowman, Shadowman, hmm, hmm Who is the Shadowman, Shadowman, Shadowman, hmm, hmm I can see his reflection When I look in his eyes And the towers of reason That I built with my lies Through the pages of history Foggy sea storms of time He is calling me saying You will pay for your crime Who is the Shadowman, Shadowman, Shadowman, hmm, hmm Who is the Shadowman, Shadowman, Shadowman, hmm, hmm Who is the Shadowman, who is the Shadowman, who is the Shadowman Who is the Shadowman, who is the Shadowman, who is the Shadowman You can live in the future You can live in the past You can live in the here and now But you know that ain’t gonna last Who is the Shadowman, Shadowman, Shadowman, hmm, hmm Who is the Shadowman, Shadowman, Shadowman, hmm, hmm Who is the Shadowman, Shadowman, Shadowman, hmm, hmm Who is the Shadowman, Shadowman, Shadowman, hmm, hmm

Foolish Fire 04:35
Here abouts in these badlands There’s a story they tell I heard it a few times So I know it quite well Jack O’ Lantern’s a bad guy The Will O’ The Wisp See his footsteps at midnight In the snow deep and crisp He laughs in the moonlight His eyes burn just like coals He carries a back sack Where he keeps the lost souls Don’t follow his foolish fire Don’t follow his foolish fire It may be your heart’s desire Don’t follow his foolish fire Is that a lamp light I can see up ahead? Rolling and reeling Am I being mislead? The light keeps on moving It was East, now it’s West My body is aching, man I could do with some rest Don’t follow that foolish fire Don’t follow that foolish fire It may be your heart’s desire Don’t follow his foolish fire Staring into the darkness Straining my sight Was that laughter I heard? Was it off to the right? Staggering blindly Like a leaf that is blown Senses ripped open Like a teardrop hitting a stone Yeah, I heard it again It was right over there This seems like a good time To remember a prayer Don’t follow that foolish fire Don’t follow that foolish fire It may be your heart’s desire Don’t follow that foolish fire

Foreign Land 04:08
Have you a restless and a roving mind? Always moving on Is there a place you’re trying hard to find? Is your heart just like mine? Wish I was living in a foreign land Far away from all my troubles One day I’ll move out to a foreign land And leave it all behind Well, if you sail across the open sea Fly over the ocean You'll find a land where your heart can be Freewheelin' in motion Wish I was living in a foreign land Far away from all my troubles One day I’ll move out to a foreign land And leave it all behind Leave it all behind Leave it all behind Leave it all behind...

The Blues is callin’ Callin’ out your name The Blues is callin’ Callin’ out your name Ain’t nothing you can do When the Blues is callin’ Oh well, there’s nowhere you can hide When the storm is raging That will keep you safe inside When all around is danger After all is said and done And the sky is falling Well, there ain’t no place to run When The Blues comes callin’ And The Blues is callin’ Callin’ out your name The Blues is callin’ Callin’ out your name Ain’t nothing you can do When the Blues is callin’ Well you just take it as it comes The Blues won’t ever harm you So just let those teardrops run Let ‘em wash away your sorrows Let ‘em run, let ‘em run They won’t be forever fallin’ Yeah, it comes to everyone When The Blues is callin’ And The Blues is callin’ Callin’ out your name The Blues is callin’ Callin’ out your name Ain’t nothing you can do When the Blues is callin’ Oh yeah, The Blues is callin’ Callin’ out your name The Blues is callin’ Callin’ out your name There ain’t nothing you can do When the Blues is callin’ Oh no, there ain’t nothing you can do When the Blues is callin’ Oh, there ain’t nothing you can do When the Blues is callin’

When I'm down Got no hope or expectation Can't see for all this rain You come, and you change the situation Oh, I cannot explain Come pick me up again I'm out there Running scared and lonely Got trouble flying round my brain Then I ask for one thing only Come sing you sweet refrain Come you pick me up again Take away all my sorrows Replace them with tomorrows Take away all this pain Come pick me up again The storm is moving fast on the horizon Blowing like a hurricane Can you tame this tempest, can you save me? Will you break the chain? Come pick me up again Take away all my sorrows Replace them with tomorrows Take away all this pain Come pick me up again When I'm down Got no hope or expectation Can't see for all this rain You come, and you change the situation Don't ask me to explain Oh, just how you pick me up again Oh, come you pick me up again

The tracks in the sand The lines on my hand Write out your name Since the day that you came The clouds in the sky They all ask me why And the moon and the stars They all ask where you are I won’t give up on you You will always be mine I won't give up on you I'll be there time after time I won’t give up on you I'm never losing my way In my prayers I just say I won’t give up on you Time it flies by No one denies How can I explain Things ain’t the same And the seasons they change From sun into rain That's just like my heart Since the day that we part I won’t give up on you You will always be mine I won't give up on you I'll be there time after time I won’t give up on you I'm never losing my way In my prayers I just say I won’t give up on you Cut the cards Deal a hand Call my bluff Read my heart today Tracks in the sand The lines on my hand Write out your name Since the day that you came And the clouds in the sky Well, they all ask me why And the moon and the stars They all ask where you are I won’t give up on you You will always be mine I won't give up on you I'll be there time after time I won’t give up on you I'm never losing my way In my prayers I just say I won’t give up on you I won't give up I won't give up...

I can’t breathe I can’t move I’ve been sitting here for hours Trying to figure out what to do I know it’s wrong Feels so right You just lay there smiling And tell me everything's alright You’ve been holding him, loving him Calling him your baby Do you love him in the same way you love me? What do I do now? I don’t even know how it came to this What do I do now? Walk away, or cross the line? Can you tell me, can you tell me What do I do now? You want me I need you But you belong to him right now And it’s breaking me in two I know in time Pain can pass But time is moving slowly How long will this last? You’re holding him, loving him Calling him your baby Do you love him in the same way you love me? What do I do now? I don’t even know how it came to this What do I do now? Walk away, or cross the line? Can you tell me, can you tell me What do I do now? What do I do now? I don’t even know how it came to this What do I do now? Walk away, or cross the line? Can you tell me, can you tell me What do I do now? I can't breathe I can't move I've been sitting here for hours

The Wind doth blow today, my love A few small drops of rain I never had but one true-love In cold grave she was lain I'll do as much for my true-love As any young man may; I'll sit and mourn at her grave For a twelvemonth and a day When twelvemonth and a day had passed The dead began to speak: "Oh, who sits weeping on my grave And will not let me sleep?" 'Tis I, my love, sits on your grave And will not let you sleep I crave one kiss of your clay-cold lips And that is all I seek "You crave one kiss of my clay-cold lips But my breath smells earthly strong If you have one kiss of my clay-cold lips Your time will not be long" 'Tis down in younder garden green Where we used to walk The finest flower that ere was seen Is withered to a stalk "The stalk is withered dry, my love So will our hearts decay So make yourself content, my love Till God calls you away" The Wind doth blow today, my love A few small drops of rain I never had but one true-love In cold grave she was lain

What do you see when you look at me? Why don’t you see the possibilities? What can I do when you walk away? When you’re not around it’s so easy to say Why don’t you say you love me? Do you dream about me? Why can’t I hold you in my arms The way I’m longing to? Why can’t I have you? Well, I never learned how to read the signs Are you playing around with this heart of mine? I don’t know how to talk to you When you walk in the room I don’t know what to do Why don’t you say you love me? Do you dream about me? Why can’t I hold you in my arms The way I’m longing to? Why can’t I have you? Why can’t I have you? Guess I knew right from the start You would always have my heart Why don’t you say you love me? Do you dream about me? Why can’t I hold you in my arms The way I’m longing to? Why can’t I have, why can’t I have, why can’t I have you? Why can't I have you...?

Slipstream 04:06
You showed me how to fly high Leave gravity behind You gave me wings and told me To follow, don't fly blind For many years I watched you Fly closer to the sun But now I'm getting older I feel those days are done But I'm living in your slipstream Still living in your slipstream Your turbulence is violent It's making me feel bad Wish I could get out front Just like that dream I had I'm a shadowman in darkness In the corner of your eye Can you see me in your slipstream? Can you tell me why? I'm still living in your slipstream Forever trapped here in your slipstream Help me break out of this slipstream Gotta get out of the slipstream
