You see the signs Read between the blurry lines You thought you had the choice But you didn't read it right You did your time You loved him well you loved him right He's a wind that's always blowing And you're caught up in the eye of the storm We go around and around and around I take my shot you put your guard up and then silence We done our time Curbed our sandess kept it quiet You're wind that's always blowing And i'm afraid of being alone 'Cuz you say in the beginning "I'll go anywhere for you" But when you find that you want different things Who should follow who? We go around and around and around And I don't know why we started And I don't know where it's going I done me time Fought my way through the raging skies Your a wind that's always blowing And I'm longing just to be on solid ground 'Cuz you say in the beginning "I'd go anywhere for you" But when you find that you want different things Who should follow who? You lay it down, lay it down, lay it down And you fly away, but I'm afraid to follow you this time We done our time Oh I tried, Lord, knows I tried You're a wind that's always blowing And i don't think i can chase it anymore 'Cuz you say in the beginning "I'd go anywhere for you" But when you find that you want different things Who should follow who? Oh, you say in the beginning "I'd go anywhere for you" But when you find that you want different things Who should follow who? Who should follow who? 'Round and around and around

The fever shadow finally passed us over like a troubled rain She still asks for you everyday Don't ask me questions Take your silent glances with you when you go Weren't you just sleeping 'neath the oak tree? Weren't you just bathing 'neath the moon? I swear this day feel just like night with you gone Now I lay these stones for you One by one, just for you Darlin' I'm still true Darlin' I'm still true I see your face in every dancing shadow on my windowsill She still asks for you everyday Grey veil blowing outside the window of my misty mind Weren't we just kissing in the stable? Peeling yellow from your cheek I swear this day feels just like night with you gone Now I lay these stones for you One by one, just for you Darlin' I'm still true Darlin' I'm still true Do you just watch me here in my grey haven of memory? Time is a mocking me Am I standing or am I falling? Time is a mocking me Am I standing or am I falling? Weren't you just crying when I told you I'd always be right by your side? White lace was streaming down your back Down your back Now I lay these stones for you, one by one Now I lay these stones for you, one by one Now I lay these stones for you, one by one Darlin' I'm still true Darlin' I'm still true Darlin' I'm still true

I Would Fly 04:31
A storm rained down on a Friday morning It was a day like no other Come and gone by Friday evening Well, it didn't leave me with much to believe in Mama slipped out on a Saturday morning It was a day I hold on to The smell of rain on a dried up meadow A crack in the door and a moving shadow But by Tuesday morning, Well, I was light And by Tuesday evening, Well, I would fly Papa got married on a Sunday morning It was a day I remember The soles of my shoes stopped me short of dancing my into forever But by Tuesday morning, Well, I was light And by Tuesday evening, Well, I would fly And I left home in the early morning It was a day I'll never forget A dusty road and I didn't look back for a second It was a day I'll never forget But by Tuesday morning, Well, I was light And by Tuesday evening, Well, I would fly And by Tuesday morning, Well, I was light, (Didn't look back, no I didn't look back) And by Tuesday evening, (Didn't look back, no I didn't look back) Well, I would fly

Hello, stranger, put your loving hand in mine Hello, stranger, put your loving hand in mine You are a stranger and you're a friend of mine Get up, rounder, let a working girl lay down Get up, rounder, let a working girl lay down You are a rounder, but you're all out and down Every time I ride the 6th and 4th streetcar Every time I ride the 6th and 4th streetcar I can see my baby peeping through the bars He bowed his head, he waved both hands at me He bowed his head, he waved both hands at me He’s prison bound and longing to be free Oh, I'll see you when your troubles are like mine Oh, I'll see you when your troubles are like mine Yes, I'll see you when you haven't got a dime Weeping like a willow, moaning like a dove Weeping like a willow, moaning like a dove There's a man up country that I really love Hello, stranger, put your loving hand in mine Hello, stranger, put your loving hand in mine You are a stranger and you're a friend of mine
