Track Name: Don't Keep Waiting
Don’t keep waiting
Don’t keep waiting for me
I will be a while yet
I have no wings
Time it flies but I can’t
Close your eyes and wonder where we’ll be

Misty mountain tops
Shadowed valley
Naked bodies
Where’s your heart and where’s your mind?
Such sweet thunder
Hold me tightly
Don’t be scared but don’t be too sure
You are not my cure
My heart may soon be traveling on

Don’t keep waiting
Don’t keep waiting for me
I will be a while yet
I have no wings
Time it flies but I can’t
Close your eyes and wonder where we’ll be

Landscape’s changing
You surprise me
Winter’s ending
Mountain snows begin to melt
Feel the rapids
Water falling
Don’t scared we may just find the shore
You might be my cure
My fears may soon be traveling on
Track Name: Do You Ever
Water on the morning leaves
What do you remember about
Do you still wonder?
Do you still want her?
Summer's soft and some will sing
But some will never know the morning
Do you ever
Still think of her
Past love's pleasures
Do you ever?

Water on the morning leaves
What do you remember about
Do you still wonder?
Do you still love her?
Yes I do and always will
But I don't want to write another
Song about her
Moving on without her
Day is breaking and I
Know I'll find another
Track Name: Oh My Appetite
I'm still a little bit sore
I'm still wanting you and wanting more
They say God opens a window when he closes a door
But I can't get up off the floor

Outside the birds are singing
The sky is out of sight
I'm tired of feeling lonely
I want to live my life

My dreams I keep encircling
Life of a satellite
The years are unfulfilling
But oh my appetite

I'm still a little bit sore
I'm still wanting you and wanting more
They say God opens a window when he closes a door
But I can't get up off the floor

Peculiar gravitation
I'll turn another night
There's always something happening
But is the feeling right?
I'm never satisfied
I'm never satisfied
My dreams I keep encircling
Life of a satellite
The years are unfulfilling
But oh my appetite
Track Name: Jack of Many
Has loving too many things
Fractured my soul
And left me a jack of many?
Master of none
Did I pass up the one
Or is searching it's own reward?

I've been 12 years eastbound
9 years earth bound
And 2 years been walking alone
My friends and my family
They mean so much to me
I hope they'll all be there if I ever get home

If I were more a single minded man
Would I be less a singe searching man?

Jesus and Coltrane
Boarded and airplane
Set out for the big city lights
The things that they saw there
Good people they met there
Enough to lie a man awake and wondering at night

A simple song is all I want to sing
But this old world's a many splendored thing

Has loving to many things
Fractured my soul
And left me a jack of many
Master of none
Did I pass up the one
Or is searching it's own reward?
Track Name: Let Me In
Hey pretty stranger open your heart
I'm feeling something good from the start
Maybe it's foolish but let's play the part
How will we know unless we take a chance?

Wanting, waiting patiently
For the girl who's right for me
For the one who'll fill my life with wonder
All alone and in the dark
Waiting on my wounded heart
Were you sent from heaven here for me?

Hey pretty angel sing me a song
Save me from myself and all the things that I do wrong
I want to love you right from the start
Hey pretty stranger open your heart

Let me in, let me in, let me in
I want my days with you to begin
There's something in the wind
You're living in my dreams girl
Want you in my real world
Want to know the real you
Not afraid to tell you
