Track Name: Red Room
Verse 1:
She was with her friends, I was with mine
Saturday night and we were having a good old time
Then I saw her sitting all alone
And I’m not usually one to say hello
But my legs started shaking, my heart started aching, and I knew…..


Chorus:
When I saw her at the red room - It all started at the red room
Yeah my legs started shaking, my heart started aching, and I knew…
When I saw her at the red room - Pretty mama at the red room
Oh I never thought I’d fall in love - At a quarter past one
In the red room…

Verse 2:
I sat down and said now what’s your name
And she said “oh, I like to play this game”
I said maybe, baby we could go out
Another night we’d tear up this whole town
Well my head started spinning, I knew I was winning, yeah I knew….

Chorus:
When I saw her at the red room - It all started at the red room
Yeah my head started spinning, I knew I was winning, yeah I knew…
When I saw her at the red room - Pretty mama at the red room
Yeah I never thought I’d fall in love, at a quarter past one
In the red room…

Bridge:
Ohhh ohhhh, ohhh, ohhhh
When I saw her at the red room
Ohhh ohhhh, ohhh ohhhhh
Yeah my legs started shaking, my heart started aching, and I knew….

Chorus:
When I saw her at the red room - It all started at the red room
Yeah my legs started shaking, my heart started aching, and I knew…
When I saw her at the red room - Pretty mama at the red room
Oh I never thought I’d fall in love - At a quarter past one
In the red room….
Track Name: Love You Like A Lion
Verse 1:
Darling, you got that figure, that makes a young man wish he was richer
And I, can’t stop picturing loving you, ohhhhh
And I know, you got problems, and I don’t think I can solve em
But there’s one thing, there’s one thing that I can do….

Chorus 1:
I’ll love you like a lion, ohhh - We can leave the light on, ohhh
I’ll take you even higher - I’ll love you like a lion
Ohhhh, like a lion……Ohhhhh

Verse 2:
Darling, you’re so amazing, you got the whole jungle floor shaking
And I, my legs are shaking, girl I’m aching for you, ohhhh
And I know…you got powers, and you can stop____time with that hour…glass
But baby, are you waking, to the truth?


Chorus 2:
I’ll love you like a lion, ohhh - We can leave the light on, ohhh
I’ll take you even higher, ohhh - I’ll take you even higher, ohhh
I’ll take you even higher - I’ll love you like a lion
Ohhhh, like a lion - Ohhhhh
Oh ohhhhh, like a lion, hey! (4x)
Oh ohhhh like a lion

Bridge:
Darling, you’re such a stunner, you make an old man wish he was younger
And I, can’t help but wonder, what would be…you and me…loving like lions
Ohhh, like lions, ohhhh


Chorus 2:
Track Name: Bring Me Down
Verse 1:
You made me believe I was worthless - Like trying wasn’t even worth it
I kept trying to perfect perfect - So you would see me for me
And now I know what hell is - It’s feeling completely helpless
You even called my selflessness selfish - Left me no room to breathe

Pre-Chorus:
Ohhh demon, dragon - Where is your compassion?
Actually I’m done with asking - I know you won’t come around…


Chorus:
But I won’t let you bring me down - I won’t let you bring me down
I won’t let you bring me down - I won’t let you bring me down

Verse 2:
See I was afraid of abandonment - So I let you take my innocence
They say the damage is permanent - But the bravest hearts have scars…

Pre-Chorus:

Chorus:

Coda:
I won’t let you, bring me down (won’t let you bring me down)
I won’t let you, bring me down (won’t let you bring me down)
I won’t let you, bring me down…won’t let you bring me down…

Bridge:
And even when you’re not here, I hear your voice whisper in my ear
And for years I thought that all of my fears, were real
And now I know that it’s all you…

Pre-Chorus:

Chorus:

Coda:
Track Name: Lost Your Lover
Verse 1:
Hey brother, you better run for cover
Cuz it’s raining man, and you don’t understand, you don’t understand
Hey sister, you thought you had a mister
But he missed, huh, calling you when you were falling into a ditch, ohhh

Chorus:
And you lost your lover (when you lost your lover)
When you lost your lover (when you lost your lover)
When you lost…ohhhhh

Verse 2:
Hey cousin, I don’t know where you’re running
But she left you…ohhh she left you, it’s true
Hey neighbor – you are not in danger
But it’s scary, ohhh it’s scary it’s scary when you’re alone in your room….

Chorus:

Bridge:
Seems like the clouds will always stay grey
It seems like the pain in my chest will never go away
It feels like the rest of my days are gonna be spent in that ditch so…
Hey mother….hey father….hey son….hey daughter
When you lost your lover (4x)

Chorus:
Track Name: Home
Verse 1:
I don’t know how many months I was living out a suitcase
Always packing up and moving on to a new place
Lord it’s been so long; singing the wanderer’s song
In my mind’s camera I look back and remember
Surfing on couches all of last December
The city made me strong…but it feels so good to be home


Chorus:
Where I can play my records loud; and put my feet up on the couch (ohhh!)
Leave my glasses in the sink; and just sit back and think…
To be home, to be home….to be home
Ohhhh to be home, to be home, to be home…to be home


Verse 2:
Met a young vixen and got lost in the passion
Ended up living in a millionaire’s mansion
But I knew it was wrong…singing another man’s song
In my protest I ended up homeless
Felt myself crushed under the stress
But the glory is I’m strong…and it feels so good to be home

Chorus:

Bridge:
I didn’t know where the road was going…
Waking up confused in the morning…
But I kept holding on…till I could sing a song called home….

Chorus:

Outro:
To be home, to be home, to be home…to be home
To be home, to be home, to be home….to be home
Track Name: Promised Land
Verse 1:
We’ve been down a lonely road
Don’t you think by now we’d know
How it feels to be alone?
We prayed to the flashing lights
We stayed awake all night
We just never realized the truth

Pre-Chorus 1:
That if you believe, before you can see, it’ll be, it’ll be
If you can taste before you touch, if you can feel before the rush
If you can dream before it’s done…I know we can
I know we can make it to the promised land

Verse 2:
And we bought what we didn’t need
Thought that it would set us free
And now the trees and rivers bleed for us

Pre-Chorus 2:
But if you go in, before you begin, we all win
If you can kneel before you run, if you can feel before it comes
If you can see that all is one, I know we can
I know we can make it to the promised land

Chorus (Instrumental:

Bridge:
And they won’t take us away in their chariots
No matter how we pray for deliverance
Woe to those who steal the throne…stepping on the ones below
We are kings all on our own…and queens yes I know

Pre-Chorus 3:
But if you go in….side the temple, past the mental
And into the middle see an eye….do you see the light?
If you can taste before you touch, if you can feel before the rush
If you can dream before it’s done…I know we can
I know we can make it to the promised land

Chorus:
Ohhhh, make it to the promised land
Ohhhh, make it to the promised land
Ohhhh, make it to the promised land
Track Name: Higher Self
Verse 1:
You don’t have to worry; I got you babe
Life is such a hurry; but I got you babe

Pre-Chorus:
Ohhhh, everything’s gone be alright
You can let it be tonight; see it’s written in the sky
Ohhhh, they only know what they know
Might not know the reason so; more reason to let it go, right?

Chorus 1:
Stay high…higher self, ohhhh
And say high…..higher self, ohhhh

Verse 2:
We don’t have to push it; we’ll take it slow
We don’t have to rush it, I’ll let you know…

Pre-Chorus:
That everything’s gone be alright
You can let it be tonight; see it’s written in the sky
Ohhhh, they only know what they know
Might not know the reason so; more reason to let it go, right?

Chorus 2:
Say high…higher self, ohhhh
And stay high….higher self, ohhhh
Ohhhh as the colors fade to black; it’s ok to lose your track
It’s ok to lose track of…time
Say high….higher self…ohhhh

Instrumental break:

Chorus 2:

Outro:
Ohhhh, ohhhh, ohhhh, ohhh (repeat 8x)
