Track Name: Three Days
Three days in a summer window
a dream that I crawled through
but I'm not counting sheep
when I in this dream with you

I'm not counting sheep
But I count the hours down
While I'm catching you in your sleep

Three nights floating off my feet
with goose bumps on my skin
breathing out the magic
just to breath it in again

I'm not counting sheep
But I count the hours down
While I'm catching you in your sleep

She comes to me in my dream
we walk so far together
holding hands in stormy weather

Flowers in spring
Autumn leaves blowing in the wind
In summer we cool off
In winter we get hot

Three mornings with coffee creme
and food fit for a king
it ain't so bad waking up here
just to live the dream again

I'm not counting sheep
But I count the hours down
While I'm catching you in your sleep

She comes to me in my dream
we walk so far together
holding hands in stormy weather

Flowers in spring
Autumn leaves blowing in the wind
In summer we cool off
In winter we get hot
Track Name: While You Were Next To Me
The wind blows in my face
As you leave from this place

Time again and time before
All we shared is no more

So I build a bridge to jump off
To drown in the sea of fortune and loss

What has gone that I had
While you were next to me

A sea change, a landslide
I choked on reason as I swallowed my pride

Like driftwood on the shore
The ocean of blue will plot out my course

So I build a bridge to jump off
To drift in the sea of fortune and loss

What has gone that I had
While you were next to me
Track Name: Belle
Her eyes held a light
That I could see shining bright
My eyes she had won
Even walking towards the sun

Oh she's Isabelle

Well you dear, were a vision
that would free a man's heart from prison
and as we laid facing the sky
to the clouds my dreams did fly

To see Isabelle

Her skin of golden brown
her tongue of exotic sound
her hair of jet black
with thighs that I can't help but to look at

Oh she's Isabelle

But I fall down on the road to old Mexico town
To see Isabelle
Track Name: Someday Girl
Someday I'll find the one
and she'll shine like the morning sun
until she comes along
I'll be waiting here all night long
for her

And if you don't mind someday girl
I will

An empty box is all I've got
and of course it don't do a lot
but I don't want it to do a thing
'cause all I want to do is sing
for her

And if you don't mind someday girl
I will
Track Name: Old Oaks Road
Old oaks road, lord he ain't coming back down
Old oaks road, lord that's his burying ground

Small in years
he was young in tears
he was a boy lord
he was just a boy

Finding is way
he had none to pay
he was a boy lord
he was just a boy

Old oaks road, lord he ain't coming back down
Old oaks road, lord that's his burying ground
Old oaks road...

On the old oak track
that's where they stabbed his back
he was a boy lord
he was just a boy

Well now he's dead and gone
but his boys must go on
they're boys lord
they're just boys

Old oaks road, lord he ain't coming back down
Old oaks road, lord that's his burying ground
Old oaks road
Track Name: Mount Improbable
I awake to find my hands are tied
And as I open up my eyes
Lord, I'm not the only one

Time, it keeps running away
With thinking led astray
Well, this battle must be won

Its a fine fight on the cliffs of Mount Improbable
Its a fine night on the top of Mount Improbable

Not everybody wants to know
Why we're here and where we go
They close their eyes and they dream it so

That everything will be okay
Christ will come and save the day
Before they go on holiday

Its a fine fight on the cliffs of Mount Improbable
Its a fine night on the top of Mount Improbable

I awake to find my hands untied
Now I've opened up my eyes
Lord, I'm not the only one
