Sweat & Tears Blood Don’t Explain

Hush now, don’t explain

Just say you’ll remain

I’m glad your back, don’t explain

Quiet, don’t explain

What is there to gain

Skip that lipstick

Don’t cry, don’t lie, explain

You know that I love you

And what love endures

All my thoughts of you

For I’m completely yours

Hurts to hear folks chatter

When they say you cheat

Right or wrong, don’t matter

When you’re with me, sweet

Hush now, don’t explain

You’re my joy and pain

My life’s yours love

Don’t explain

Sweat & Tears Blood Alone

I’m so alone

I’m on my own now

I’m going home

You’ve gone away

Hung up my day now

I just can’t stay

When I tell you that I love you

I love you much more than you will ever realize

I do

I’m by myself

Up on the shelf now

I’m getting off

When you tell me that you need me

How can I believe you when you’re never home to talk

With me

Sweat & Tears Blood Almost Sorry

I sit alone here in my one room

Waiting for the company to call

Four times around the wheel is enough for anyone

I’m on my own

And I’m almost sorry that I left you

A blind man me

I thought to be happy you just have to be free

Almost sorry that I left you

I must be blind

I’m sorry that I left you

I’m a blind man

I gave away all of my, all your love

And now I’ve seen them all alone

I hope I didn’t make a big mistake now

Cause when I think of you it makes me feel sad

Sorry that I left you

I must be blind

Sorry that I left you

I’m a blind I’m a blind, I’m a blind

Sorry that I left you

A blind man me

I thought to be happy you just have to be free

It wasn’t like we didn’t talk about things

But when you talked about forever

I knew my … love for freedom

Would call my name again and lift me away

Sometimes I wonder who I talk to

When things are really getting me down

I know I’m gonna wish I had you bad baby

Who knows a man who never had to say

Sorry that I left you

I must be blind

Sorry that I left you

I’m a blind I’m a blind, I’m a blind

I gave away all of my, all your love

And now I’ve seen them all alone

I hope I didn’t make a big mistake

Cause when I think of you it makes me feel sad

Sorry that I left you

Almost sorry that I left you

Sorry that I left you

I must be blind

I’m a blind I’m a blind, I’m a blind

Almost sorry that I left you

Sorry that I left you

Sweat & Tears Blood Empty Pages

Found someone who can comfort me but there are always exceptions

And she’s good at appearing sane but I just want you to know.

She’s the one makes me feel so good when everything is against me

Picks me up when I’m feeling down, so I’ve got something to show.

Staring at empty pages, scented by the same old flowers

Staring at empty pages, flowing along in the ages.

Often lost and forgotten, the vagueness and the mud

I’ve been thinking I’m working too hard but I’ve got something to show.

Staring at empty pages, scented by the same old flowers

Staring at empty pages, flowing along in the ages.

Staring at empty pages, scented by the same old flowers

Staring at empty pages, flowing along in the ages.

Often lost and forgotten, the vagueness and the mud

I’ve been thinking I’m working too hard but I’ve got something to show.

You know, found someone who can comfort me but there are always exceptions

And she’s good at appearing sane but I just want you to know.

Sweat & Tears Blood Blue Street

It’s funny how our lives are like a prize fight

One day you’re up and then you get knocked down

But I have learned the hurt can end

We can come up smelling like a rose again

Blue Street is a place that’s in my past now

A few blocks down, but not too far away

It’s time to take another turn

Go to a place where memories won’t burn

‘Cause there’s a signpost hanging over the horizon

Waiting for me like an open door

I don’t wanna walk down Blue Street, I’ve been there before

I don’t wanna see her broken, lonely eyes no more

I don’t wanna walk down Blue Street, I’ve been there before

I don’t wanna see her broken, lonely eyes no more

I’m walking down the Avenue of Peace, now

I’m not swaying from the course I take

Lily white the flowers bloom

The sun is guiding every move I make

I’m not thinking of that old and lonesome Blue Street

It’s a few blocks down, but not too far away

Time has come to take another turn

And leave her in the past to die and burn

‘Cause there’s a signpost hanging over the horizon

Waiting for me like an open door

I don’t wanna walk down Blue Street, I’ve been there before

I don’t wanna see her broken, lonely eyes no more

And I don’t wanna walk down Blue Street, I’ve been there before

I don’t wanna see her broken, lonely eyes no more

And I don’t wanna walk down Blue Street, I’ve been there before

I don’t wanna see her broken, lonely eyes no more

Sweat & Tears Blood Dreaming As One

The morning dove singing

Her sweet lullaby

Her love is still thinking

Of how he replied

As I reach for you

You open your eyes

As if somehow you knew

The need in my life

As you always do

Slowly you come

And though we sleep as two

We’re dreaming as one, dreaming as one

A child in his slumber

His world is at rest

I never wonder

Why I’m so blessed

As I lie with you

Awaking this day

I give my thoughts to you

I silently pray

That love will see us through

From darkness ’til dawn

Though we sleep as two

We’re dreaming as one, dreaming as one

Oh now baby, dreaming as one,

Oh yeah, dreaming as one

Oh it feels so good, it feels so good sometimes

Wake up in the morning, just to wake up in the morning

And find you here beside me

I need you, baby, I need you, baby, oh yes

Oh it feels so good in the morning sometimes

Sometimes I just can’t keep from crying

Sweat & Tears Blood Children Of The Wind

Girl it’s hard to feel

Love that seems so real

And though just to know

Where summer’s children go

Children children of the wind

Seems like such a shame

Played a children’s game

And though just to see

Through fading memory

Children children of the wind

Must be some good reason yeah

Why we touched today

Turning back the season

Remember a rose

Making love as it grows

Aaahhh but that’s the bitter earth

And the moon in birth

Of children and roses

Mmmm hmmm hmmm

Mmmm hmmm hmmm
