Track Name: XXOO
All I need is a sign
some detailed directions and you by my side
Baby, all we got is time
so live it today, don’t bother tomorrow

Give me the go ahead
I’ve got these letters ready to send
Double X, Double O
signing out, baby we’re ready to go

Sending out for you, baby
on the XO Express
All I need is a sign
baby, on the right line…
Double X, Double O, we’re ready to go

All we do is wait
for the right time but it’s never too late
All we know is now
so give it away, I don’t see the problem

You’ve got the go ahead
come on baby, you heard what I said
I said, Double X, Double O
Don’t hold back, be ready to go

Sending out for you, baby
on the XO Express
All I need is a sign
baby, on the right line…
Double X, Double O, we’re ready to go
Track Name: Lean On My Love
Love is the constant season that stays
love is the steady breath that remains
Calm as the colors, warm as the wind
true as the turning, and longing within

You can lean on my love, I want to hold you
You can lean on my love, I won't let you down
You can lean on my love, I want to heal you
from whatever feeling in your heart is weighing down your mind

Well we started out slow
two rivers wide, reflect and fow
But I can't deny, loving you is easy
I won't deny, babe you really see me

You can lean on my love, I want to hold you
You can lean on my love, I won't let you down
You can lean on my love, I want to heal you
from whatever feeling in your heart is weighing down your mind

Hey, babe! What do you want to say?
I'm on your side and I want to keep it that way
Hey, babe! What do you want to do?
I'm on your side, I wanna see this through
I'm on your side, please believe it's true
I'm on your side, and I'm gonna keep on loving you...
Track Name: Still Dreamin'
How long are you gonna be gone?
Shall I make myself at home,
or try and catch up with you baby?
Hot on the trail, I make my break so clean
I've got a love that's raw and real
It's sweet and it's mean...
and then it's sweet again

You know I'm a wild woman, but you don't gotta let me go
I just like to take my walkabouts and the long way home...

You're one damn tasty man,
I'm trying to tell you how I feel
I keep you in the front pocket of my heart
you do more than just appeal to me

How long are you gonna be cool?
I'm trying to warm up to you baby, and you're acting like a fool
If you're gonna act a fool, then be a fool in love
I woke up across the world today
but I'm still dreamin' of ya...

I gotta tell you, my sweet worried baby
it's a crazy little life that we lead
and I'm a deep loving lady
In the middle of the night I'll be coming home
to wrap you up in lullabies
oh I gotta let you know

That it won't be long that we will be apart
I wanna be close to you baby,
and it's breaking my heart
and if hearts gotta be broken, then break ‘em open with love
I woke up across the world today
but I'm still dreamin' of ya...
Track Name: Evangeline
Back from the windy seas and I’ve still got my sails
tattered and torn as they may be
Into the great expanse of my mind
wandering and fleeting as it may seem

This is for you my Evangeline,
somewhere down in Louisian’
with your eyes closed under still water
longing for your ghost of a man

Years ago when we lived on that farm
in the everlasting sun
in the summer time with the dragonflies
I saw you as the woman you are

Why when I go, do you stay?
Why when I stay, do you go?
Back from the windy seas
from the ebb and flow
still love Evangeline

As I lay ‘neath the moonlight
inside the arms of an oak tree
tomorrow’s promise of you
is a blue mist washing over me

If I stand alone in the autumn winds
will snow fall light on the lowlands?
If winter’s only a hollow cold
I’ll hold you with spring in my hands

Why when I go, do you stay?
Why when I stay, do you go?
Back from the windy seas
from the ebb and flow
still love Evangeline
Track Name: Nothing Left To Lose
Show me the way out
these times are dark and getting darker
And what's gonna be the spark,
that changes, that lights up you and me?

Barely surviving ain't how I wanna live
I wanna give to you baby, oh yes I do
But sometimes I don't feel brave
wasted, throwing dreams into the rain

And the phone rings it is my darlin'
He's telling me he don't know when he's gonna be home
Me, I'm still playing life like a gambler
I'm rolling with the joys and pains of my turn

What are you gonna deal me?
You don't always get to choose
Can you feel me?
I've got nothing left to lose

How can tell where we're bound?
We're walking the road lost and trying to be found
I can't say what it's all about
but if it don't feel right then change your route

Oh, this country soul... I can't help myself!
Let me do what I gotta do!
Oh, this wildfire heart is burning fast..
and I've got nothing left to lose

What are you gonna deal me?
You don't always get to choose
Can you feel me?
I've got nothing left to lose
Track Name: How It Is
I would love to teach you that lesson, honey
but I ain’t got the time
I carried out my old heavy ways
to the street and they were picked up last night

From now on, I’m walking free and lighter everyday
I would love to teach you that lesson, honey
but you’d wouldn’t learn it anyway

Let’s be real now, I won’t allow
these bend over backwards games

How could I explain to you
why I’m sitting out this time?
Honey, what could I possibly say
when you keep crossing that line?

Let’s be real now, you’re out of bounds
and I don’t play that way

If you can’t tell the truth,
then somebody, somebody’s gonna tell it for you

Now that I pay you no mind, you’re treating me kind
Wouldn’t you love for me to play the fool this time?

Let’s be real now, you wonder how
this always comes about

If you can’t tell the truth
then somebody, somebody’s gonna tell it for you
Track Name: All Night
I'm giving you everything I got
tonight I've got love, let's keep this flame hot
Seven-oh-double-one-six, best you understand
ain't nobody shakin' and stirrin' it like I can

Serve to me that top shelf man
I wanna be his little sugar mama
Anything that your heart desires
we've got all night to turn it higher

I want my love straight up, serve it to me
Keep me up all night if you please

I've been so poured out and empty
but you fill me to the top
Oooh, baby I've got this feeling
tonight'll be good 'til the last drop

And if that last drop is truly, truly good
then pour another, sip me in I wish you would
Oooh, let's move it, shake, yeah turn it higher!
Oooh, baby we've got all night

I want my love straight up, serve it to me
Keep me up all night if you please
Track Name: Hummingbird
If nothing else, believe in the moon
As it fades and returns just the same
Hold on to your light
don’t ever let it slip away

That’s all I can do,
all I can I do

Stay true to the rhythm
listen to the call of the tide
Imagine only the highest good
and trust that all heals in time

That’s all I can do
all I can I do

Something is pulling you away
and I can’t make you stay
but more than ever I’m holding out
that this message will lift you somehow

That’s all I can do
all I can I do
Track Name: Postcard From Wichita
I’m looking for a ride, babe
time to feel the wonder
I wanna drive through rain
and get lost in the thunder

I’m gonna keep it moving,
Sweep you up in my groove and
take you away

You know I’m looking for a ride
it don’t matter where we go
It could be the heart of America
or the next coast

could be the Mississippi Delta
the Big Easy, the Emerald Isle
or the Golden City

I’ve been searching deep down in me
I’m not sure of anything
I just want to keep running free
Before time runs out on me

You know, I want to keep cruising!
So many days felt like losing my time to the clock
I gotta stop working at this job and go to

The Mississippi Delta
the Big Easy, the Emerald Isle
or the Golden City

It feels so right not knowing
That’s the beauty of the present moment
The journey, not where we’re going
I’m gonna catch that ride,
I’m gonna catch that ride,
I’m gonna catch that ride, and ride it all the way...
