ORANGE BLOSSOMS
well I snuck to her window to leave her a note
will you come meet me at the back of the grove?
all the trees were in bloom that sweet smell in the air
we were trebling together we were young we were scared

true love is hard to find

I can smell those orange blossoms
I can see her standing here
when I smell those orange blossoms then I'm there

we swam in the lake we watched fire flies by night
she was my princess and I was her Knight
but her daddy didn't like me He ain't like how I look
he said leave that boy be and that’s all that it took

true love is hard to find

I can smell those orange blossoms
I can see her standing here
when I smell those orange blossoms
then I'm there

but I remember her vow How she wouldn't forget me
and all these years later I can't even remember her name

true love is hard to find

I can smell those orange blossoms
I can see her standing here
when I smell those orange blossoms
then I'm there

where did she go

THE DEVIL YOU KNOW
well don’t try to change the subject again
hide and seek with yourself it ain’t a game you can win
if ya gonna be dumb boy you got to be tough

if we changed up places you’d roll like a dime
yeah you hurt yeah you hurt yeah you know it ain’t right
I ain’t going I ain’t going to front you this time… because you…

you turned on me for the Devil you know
you turned on me for the Devil you know

well you can’t get free without some blood sweat and tears
that voice in your head has got you all balled up in fear
time to, to pack your bags and tell yourself goodbye

habit got you changed mind body and soul
and you’ll never feel free until you learn to let go of that
That bag full of bricks you been dragging around

you turned on me for the Devil you know
you turned on me for the Devil you know

EVERYTHING GOOD IS BAD
seems like everything good is bad
and everything bad is good
seems Like everything good is bad
and everything bad is good

your love is like the sweet forbidden fruit in life
i’m another woman’s man you’re another man’s wife
we both know the difference between right and wrong
life is full of temptation it’s hard to be strong

seems Like everything good is bad
and everything bad is good
seems Like everything good is bad
and everything bad is good

when I kissed your lips I made a big mistake
your love is like a habit a habit I can’t break
in my heart I lied cuz in my mind I know
with you I want to be with her I still belong

seems Like everything good is bad
and everything bad is good
seems Like everything good is bad
and everything bad is good

all the things you want to be maybe wrong to society
if there’s a choice between silk and satin they both feel good to me

seems Like everything good is bad
and everything bad is good
seems Like everything good is bad
and everything bad is good

SHE DON'T KNOW
she believes in what I tell her she believes in what I do
many times I’ve spoke to hear my own voice
somehow she still believes

lord but she don’t know how much I love her
and she don’t know how much I need
if the morning finds her gone I don’t know that I could carry on
she don’t know

she believes in what I do she believes even if I don’t

lord but she don’t know how much I love her
and she don’t know how much I need
if the morning finds her gone I don’t know that I could carry on
she don’t know

THE TRUTH
darling wait for me I’m coming home
keep those home fires burning bright
don’t leave me alone

night becomes day
i’ll find my way
the golden moment has arrived

the bluest of blue skies
all I see when I open my eyes
heartache all that misery
can’t hold back the light of my life

night becomes day
i’ll find my way
the golden moment has arrived

one step closer to the truth – to the truth
one step closer to the truth – to the truth
one step closer to the truth – to the truth
one step closer to the truth – to the truth

no answers tell what you mean what you mean to me

HIGHER YOU CLIMB
sook operator since the day you was born
flash a little money from some rock you sold
well they say the higher you climb further you fall
then you’d leave your young’ns with nothing at all

spend the grocery money trying to make you a name
while your kids can’t read or write I guess you ain’t going change
and now you say they got you pimping for the DEA
rolling on your boys cause you say you getting paid

the higher you climb the further you fall
the higher you climb the further you fall
the higher you climb the further you fall
the higher you climb the further you fall

the higher you climb the further you fall
the higher you climb the further you fall
the higher you climb the further you fall
the higher you climb the further you fall

DEW DROPS

but I am stronger, stronger now
all these children cold faces Lord they followed me some how
I got to get away right now

mama ain’t a day goes by I don’t think about him
well I can see his face still
dull grey eyes burnt out to ash Lord to hell and gone again
I got to get away from him

i’m walking on moonlight
walking in the starlight place in my mind
walking on moonlight in the day
sipping on dew drops
float above the green treetops and it all
walking on moonlight in the day

i’m walking on moonlight
walking in the starlight place in my mind
walking on moonlight in the day
sipping on dew drops
float above the green treetops and it all
walking on moonlight in the day

YBOR CITY
the night is cold here on this ground
I hear that dog a howling makes me want to smile - cause
I know a rowdy place where
the whiskeys warm and women are too
when I get to Ybor City
all them women going to love me through and through

the tensions mounting boy them bullets fly
roll over on my back and stare into the sky
them stars look cold and lonesome
but I know where the ladies are sweet as wine
when I get to Ybor City
all the women going to love me out my mind

give me a minute boys
I ain’t dead yet
it’s just I’m tired of fighting
let me catch my breath - cause
I know a place that smells of
cigars and sweet, sweet perfume
when I get to Ybor City
all them women going to treat me like a king
when I get to Ybor City
all them women going to treat me like a king

all you women going to treat me like a king

all you women going to treat me like a king

fighting for my life said around midnight
all you women going to treat me like a king
all you women going to treat me like a king

I BELIEVE (IN EVERYTHING)
I believe in everything
from a river running backwards
to a bee when it stings
and I believe
in the voices out here
telling me to hold on
but let go of my fear

a childhood imagination
has been my salvation
one cloud at a time
lord I’m dreaming
let me look upon her
one more time
this beauty that I love – she’s why

I believe in everything, in everything I’m a believer

I believe in what I can’t change
in a hard lesson learned
and the strength from my pain
and I believe
in what I can’t prove
in the joy of not knowing
and the misunderstood

let go of my past
let go of my future
one cloud at a time
yes I’m dreaming
let me look upon her
one more time
this beauty that I love
before she’s gone, before she’s gone

I believe in everything, in everything I’m a believer
I believe in everything, in everything I’m a believer

the memory of one moment
is the beginning and the end of who I am

I believe in everything, in everything I’m a believer
I believe in everything, in everything I’m a believer
I believe in everything, in everything I’m a believer
I believe in everything, in everything I’m a believer

tell me about something tell me about something you believe in
tell me about something tell me about something you believe in
tell me about something tell me about something you believe in
