about

Track Name: In Your Hollow
1. In your Hollow

Do you collect the sunlight
in your hollow
lonely

Does it leave a space
for the rain to fill

the echo of your absence
haunts the air I breathe

I am taking shallow steps
I would not disturb the silence

That pools around my feet
and ankles

If I am very still & quiet
I can almost remember you
Track Name: I Had a Lover I Thought Was My Own
2.I Had a Lover I thought was my Own

I had a lover I though was my own
I 'd slip from my bed while my husband was sleeping
Once I drove to his house but the door was locked
I could see he had the candles all lit

I had a lover I thought was my own
Once he told me
You should pay me
I keep the older women of this town happy
Fat & merry

I had a lover I thought was my own
He took me in his arms upon the chair
When I'd told him we were done
He held me close & stroked my hair
Track Name: Spare Parts
3. Spare Parts
& Whatever you got lyin' around
in the back of a closet or on the ground
under your bed
I'd like to take it home with me
I'll build a man with a gold heart
out of the spare parts
you don't want anymore
I'm pretty good with my hands
& I need a man
who'll whirr & purr
stir at my command
& whatever you got lyin' around
you won't miss too much
I need the touch of a clean machine
made up of spare parts
it's the ones with the broken hearts
that cry tears of joy
Cry tears of joy over the simplest things
& whatever you got lyin' around
in the back of a closet or on the ground
under your bed
I'd like to take it home with me
I'll build a man with a gold heart
out of those spare parts
Track Name: Lily of the Valley
4.Lily of the Valley

He gave me a crown of gold
silver was all that I'd wanted
the silver of moonlight on the water
a lover who'd look into my eyes

& Everybody said I was foolish
& everybody knew they knew better than
be that as it may

I only feel sorry for the Lily of the Valley
that grew beside the shade of the Dogwood tree
because they always remind me now
they always remind me
be that as it may
"white coral bells ring" came up by surprise
at the new house this Spring.

Someone had to be the hard headed hammer
well, let me play the part that pries the nails out
when all of the walls built between us are gone
we'll lie in the grass
in the warm sun

Baby, do you want to go?
Back where I come from?
I am the daughter of Mother's Nature's Son.
Track Name: Highway Gone
5. Highway Gone
Who's to know
where your love lies gone
where your loves flies gone
when you go, my love
& where you go
when the night falls love
& the morning comes
& you're gone, my love
My love's gone away
on the highway
gone
Track Name: My Carolina
6. My Carolina

Meet me Midnight
Soft step candlelight
and I'll slip inside
I'm on fire driving down your highway

Bring me sweet tea, cigarettes
let me forget them on the nightstand by your bed

Oh my Carolina, what you've done to me
Oh my Carolina, want done to me forever

I am the ramblin' rose & I'll climb the highest fence
to thrust my faith, my love, myself and my world
bloom outside your window

No consequence to me if you're making me happy
no consequence to me if you're bring me misery

Oh my Carolina,see what you've done
what you've done to me
Track Name: Long Black Veil
7. Long Black Veil
written by Marijohn Wilkin and Danny Dill
Track Name: In the Ring
8. In the Ring

Went to bed angry last night
my last words a curse
you just shrug it off make it worse.

Slowly & sweetly
you kissed me on the elbow
but I just turned away
to make you pay, make you pay

Don't worry baby
this old life won't teach me
Don't worry baby
sometimes you just can't reach me

Anyway, I been round & round
in the ring
Stupid & punch drunk
won’t you let me rest
my bloody cheek against yours sometimes

Any good boxer knows
It’s not the punches you throw
But just how much how much can you take?
You won’t break me baby
I'll fight away & never change

Don't worry baby
Anyway
I’ve been round & round
In the ring
I've grown small & mean
You sweet thing
You poor sweet thing

Anyway, I been round & round
in the ring
Oh, won’t you let me rest

Track Name: Your Skin Does Not Lie
10. Your Skin Does Not Lie

White eyelashes
On your eyes

Your skin does not lie

I like a stroll in the morning
I like a stroll in the morning
Sleepy streets by the sea

Your skin does not lie

I see the lovers are entwined
Winter sky in the morning
Birds fly from their mouths
Birds that fill the sky

Winter blue
Winter blue

Winter white
eyelashes on your eyes
Winter blue
were your eyes

Stood so close when I spoke to you
Your skin does not lie
