Lyrics

Run behind the church and down the hill
Under the cross where time’s standing still
Paying dues for your troubled mind
Trying to lose what you fought to find

Sooner or later you’re gonna hear a sound
That holds you and lifts you
Picks you back off the ground

Open your eyes and close your back door
There is a sign on top of your shoulder
Telling shake them down

Shake them down shake them down yeah
Hey old man thanks for coming around
Break it down break it down break it down yeah
Be still for the peace to be found

Run run run
Dedl dum dedl day em day
Dedl dum dedl dem dum em day

Sooner or later you’re gonna hear a sound
That holds you and lifts you
Picks you back off the ground

Open your eyes and close your back door
There is a sign on top of your shoulder
Telling shake them down

Shake them down shake them down yeah
Hey old man thanks for coming around
Break it down break it down break it down yeah
Be still for the peace to be found

Countless voices calling
Fears are answering the pain
Myths and legends ending in your mind
Moving ’round again
Moving ’round again

Moving ’round
Moving ’round
Moving ’round again
Shake them down yeah

Shake them down shake them down yeah
Hey old man thanks for coming around
Break it down break it down break it down yeah
Be still for the peace to be found
Shake them down shake them down shake them down yeah

What’s that you say
Gonna sleep all day
So tired been wired
You’re so uptight
Got no sleep last night
Gone crazy so lazy

You say I’ve been awake so long my feet are ’bout to fumble
I’ve been wake so long barely holding on
I’ve been wake so long my knees begin to tremble
And I like how I feel

Don’t turn out the light
Don’t turn out the light

What’s that you said
Spiders in your bed
Can’t rest here
Desperate fear
Go get your gun
Smoke the little ones
A cheap thrill sleeping pill

You say I’ve been wake so long my feet are bout to fumble
I’ve been wake so long barely holding on
I’ve been wake so long my knees begin to tremble
And I like how I feel

Spiders in my bed
Spiders in my bed
Yes that’s what I said
Spiders in my bed
Don’t turn out the light

I’ve been wake so long my feet are bout to fumble
I’ve been wake so long barely holding on
I’ve been wake so long my knees begin to tremble
And I like how I feel

Yeah I like how I feel

Spiders in my bed
Spiders in my bed
Yes that’s what I said
Spiders in my bed
Don’t turn out the light

Writer & Composer: Beth Hart

So you think I’m crazy
Want to take me away
Inject me with electric shock
I’m not going nowhere
Hear what I say loud and clear
Reveal your sly intentions
And free my isolation

A second longer say it’s alright
A second longer say it’s alright
A second longer I’ll be insane
The second I become you
And what you say

Run your wires through me
Fry electricity
Gas me till I pass on out
You will not control me
With your failed philosophies
Weep to ease the tension
And free my isolation

A second longer say it’s alright
A second longer say it’s alright
A second longer I’ll be insane
The second I become you
And what you say
What you’re gonna say

Lost my mind today
It was my desire
I told them what was wrong

But they called me a liar
Yeah they called me a liar
I am not afraid
Why should I care what they say
I told them they were wrong

Still they called me a liar
So I set ‘em on fire

A second longer say it’s alright
A second longer say it’s alright
A second longer I’ll be insane
The second I become you
And what you say
What you’re gonna say

Writer & Composer: Beth Hart & Tal Herzberg & James Khoury

If I whisper my thoughts

Would you hear the chanting of my heart
Phrasing melodies unsung in the dark
Saying hold me through the night

Hear the music from my room

Calling out to you
Come home to me soon
Shadows bellowing duets with the moon
Singing hold me through the night

Hold me through the night
Hold me through the night

And the water drop in the drain

Just like the sound it makes you’re coming round again
There’s a soft piano in a warm summer’s rain

Playing hold me through the night

Hold me through the night
Hold me through the night

Hold me hold me through the night
Hold me hold me through the night
Oh ya gotta hold me through
Ya gotta hold me through the night
Hold me through the night

Writer & Composer: Beth Hart & James Khoury

I can’t tell between the two
It’s all the same to me
I can’t tell what’s on your mind
Too late, too far behind
Life’s a state of mind

Gimme gimme time
Gimme gimme time

As I lie beneath the sky
I speak to fireflies
And with every passing fear
My sorrow disappears
Colours in my tears
Change throughout the years

Oh gimme time
Gimme gimme time
Oh gimme time

La la la yi la
No lesson
No lesson here

As I lie beneath the sky
I speak to fireflies
And with every passing fear
My sorrow disappears
Colours in my tears
Slowly disappears

Gimme gimme time
Oh give me time
Oh give me time
Gimme gimme time

Got a lot to learn chile
Seeking hearts concerns chile
If you want her chile
If you want to burn
Here’s your fire

Gonna fry her

Will you let me in
I will come again
Screamed temptation

Got a lot to learn chile
Seeking hearts concerns chile
If you wanna hurt chile
If you want to burn
Here’s your fire
Gonna fry her

Will you let me in
I will come again
I will come again

Got a lot to learn chile
So many sold concerns chile
If you want her chile
It’s much too late to turn
You’re on fire

Gonna fry her

Will you let me in
I will come again

What’ll you say when she starts weeping
What’ll you do what’ll you do when she crows

Walking by temptation cries
I am thee and I will be here again

I will come again

Writer & Composer: Beth Hart & Tal Herzberg &  James Khoury

Trying to fly mountain high
Are you trying to be immortal
Come on here’s your chance
Take your dance
Say goodbye to your mother

Just let your life shine now’s the time
What you’ve been given will do just fine
Just let your love come through
Your song for the people
Listen to the voices of your soul
Are you trying to be immortal

I can see the future’s been painted
Red white and blue
I won’t whisper if you won’t
You and I know that it ain’t true

Just let your life shine now’s the time

What you’ve been given will do just fine
Just let your love come through
Your song for the people
Listen to the voices of your soul
They’re trying to tell you
What you already know
Are you trying to be immortal

Life’s a bitch while you’re living on the bubble
Thought I saw right but now I think I’m seeing double
Are you trying to be immortal

Free the free

You got to look through your left eye
What you gonna do
What you gonna do

Just let your life shine now’s the time

What you’ve been given will do just fine
Just let your love come through
Your song for the people
Listen to the voices of your soul
They’re trying to tell you
What you already know
Are you trying to be immortal

Listen to the voices of your soul
They’re trying to tell you
What you already know
Are you trying to be immortal

Life’s a bitch while you’re living on the bubble
Thought I saw right but now I think I’m seeing double
The future’s been painted
Red white and blue

Summer’s gone
Days passing by again
Chill rushes in sin
Come take me away my friend

I don’t wanna take too long
Grab my summer smile and I’ll be along

‘Cause we’re gonna
Ride ride ride through the valley
Roll roll roll in the fields I swear
Fly fly fly with the deepest part of our hearts

Are you ready to start
Let’s get the hell outta here
Hell on outta here

And if I get lonely
If I get thirsty for the sun
I’ll roll down my window
I can feel the road she’s my only one

I ain’t gonna waste my time no way
Get me outta here and I’ll bring the wine

‘Cause we’re gonna
Ride ride ride through the valley
Roll roll roll in the fields I swear
Fly fly fly with the deepest part of our heart

Are you ready to start
Let’s get the hell outta here
Hell on outta here

Ride ride ride
Roll roll roll
We’re gonna fly fly fly on outta here

I ain’t gonna waste my time no way
Get me outta here and I’ll bring the wine

Summer’s gone
Days passing by again
Chill rushes in sin
Come take me away take me away

Ride ride ride hell on outta here
Roll roll roll hell on outta here
We’re gonna fly fly fly on outta here

Rolling out of bed a little heavy
Sickened from the deadness in my head
Begging for a break I’m tired of tripping
Sounds loud enough to wake the dead

Hear ‘em ringing on ringing ringing on
As if it’s not enough
From the dusk till dawn
They keep ringing on

Stumble to the mr. coffee maker
Sip a little joe and lift me off
Shaking from the screams of hurry hurry
Smacking on the prime I’m way behind

Feel me ringing on yes I’m tingling on
As if it’s not enough
Sift the dusk till dawn

And I’ll be ringing on

Rolling into bed a little heavy
Bounded by the sound that blows my mind
Sister crying bleeding worry worries
Mother Mary god she sends her sign

Hear her ringing on yes she’s singing on
I’ll give her all my love
All are dreaming on in her black rust song
Ringing ringing on ringing ringing on

All are dreaming on in her black rust song

Writer & Composer: Beth Hart & Tal Herzberg & James Khoury & David Reitzas

I love you and all that you do
I need you to see me through
I want you and I say
Oh and god bless you

She told me you’re going away
I said how can I make you stay
I love you and I say
Oh and god bless you

If I call out your name
Could you hear me calling
If I said that it’s wrong

Would you say I’m falling
If I told you the truth
Would you stay
Say ya say ya

I love you and all that you do
I need you to see me through
I want you and I say
Oh and god bless you

I could wait a lifetime to see the sunrise

But I would never wait so long to see you all right
And make you okay

Won’t you just stay
Say ya say ya

I love you and all that you do
I need you to see me through
I want you and I say
Oh and god bless you

Writer & Composer: Beth Hart & James Khoury

I sing these words time and time again
To express my life of being your lover and your friend
And as the clouds high above shed their tears
I’ll embrace you with love from all your fear

Am I the one am I the one that you love
Am I the one
Am I the one that you think of
Am I am I the one

A passion in your caress flows from your fingertips
And I pray for the day that I hear those precious words pass through your lips
Wishing upon a star from up above
That soon you’ll look at me baby and say I’m the one that you love

Am I the one
Am I the one that you love
Am I the one
Am I the one that you think of

Don’t you make me feel crazy if I break down and cry
Just tell me that you love me baby
Even if it is a lie
Am I
Am I
Am I
Am I the one

I know there’s a painful chance I must take
So sad that I ask you
Afraid it’s a mistake

Am I the one
Am I the one that you love
Am I the one
Am I the one that you think of
Don’t you make me feel crazy
If I break down and cry
Just tell me that you love me baby
Even if it is a lie
Am I the one
Am I the one
Am I the one

Am I the one I got to know yeah
Come one baby
Am I the one

She remembers the day they met
Right down to the minute
Her life has never been the same

Sitting alone in the dark
Staring into the night
Her life has never ever been the same

She cries it’s a mystery
Can’t anybody see it
How much this is hurting me
It’s black magic
Its the season of the witch

Blame the moon
Blame the moon

It’s a mystery
Can’t anybody see
How much this is hurting me
It’s black magic
It’s the season of the witch

Blame the moon
Blame the moon
