Track Name: Black Halo

She got a black halo

She’s walking on down, down.

All of the places -
He comes around, round. 


She says don’t you worry 
I’ll find him tonight, that’s right

Cause there ain’t no place in this whole damn city that man can hide.


And she’s got a black halo

Lord it used to be white

But she ain’t the angel that she was walking out here tonight.





And it don’t mean a thing to her if you don’t understand

She don’t need a diamond on her hand

To tell her who is her man. 





And she’s got a black halo

Like a dark rain cloud

But out in the ghetto

She’s walking so proud.

Cause when all those angel wings have flown back home

He’s gonna come back to find his own.

He knows someday she might not be there.

She’s got her devils to spare. 




And she’s got a black halo

Over heaven’s smile

And a peace in her heart no demon man can ever defile.

If you’re out in the city

You might see her tonight

Just look for her halo burning bright

Burning bright, bright, bright, bright, bright.
Track Name: Scarlet Rain
Put away your heartache cause I ain’t never coming home.
You think I made a mistake, and you won’t call me on the phone.
Changed my hair and changed my name and you won’t ever feel the same, oh no.


But this is real life-
And this is my life.


I run through my own fire.
You fan or flames in vain.
You turn your eyes to a barren sky
I dance in scarlet rain.


People keep confusing obligatory stops along the way
From genius to brilliance insanity just might come into play
And though I might drive you there, you’ll be glad you loved me some day.



But this is real life
And this is my life.


I run through my own fire
You fan or flames in vain
You turn your eyes to a barren sky
I dance in scarlet rain.


You wanted me to stay; hold tight to yesterday
Ignore the burning in my veins
But I’ve got an old guitar and this used car.


I run through my own fire
You fan or flames in vain
You turn your eyes to a barren sky
I dance in scarlet rain.
Track Name: Her End of The Phone
She called at 2 a.m. knowing that you wouldn’t be alone.
She wants you back again- she can’t believe you’re gone.
She asks you why. She needs a reason for her pain-
Someone she can blame- that’s me.


She’s walking around town with her heart rammed straight up her ass today.
And the fact all hope is gone is too much too soon tonight to face.
The reckless game she played has come for her in spades
And every time she looks around.


I was the one- the vicious concubine
The other woman to her piece of mind
I was the one- the fault was not her own
That’s how it sounds on her end of the phone.


She forgets about the times we sat and talked about the man
I forget that time is something that we’ll never have again
She’s hearing what she needs to put her sould at ease
To stay a victim there must be a crime.


I was the one- the vicious concubine
The other woman to her piece of mind
I was the one- the fault was not her own
That’s how it sounds on her end of the phone.


If I ever hurt the girl it’s not as if I wanted it that way
And if I had the chance there’s still a lot of things I’d like to say
But I won’t apologize while she tries to moralize
I did nothing that she wouldn’t do.


I was the one- the vicious concubine
The other woman to her piece of mind
I was the one- the fault was not her own
That’s how it sounds on her end of the phone.


She called at 2 a.m. knowing that you wouldn’t be alone.
She wants you back again- she can’t believe you’re gone.
She asks you why. She needs a reason for her pain-
Someone she can blame- that’s me.
Track Name: Other Side of My World
On the other side of my world the sun always shines.

On the other side of my world my strength is hard to find

In the face of this new pain.





We trade places- this rolling stone tries to be a rock

And we trade faces- when what I had ain’t what I got

on the other side of my world.





On the other side of my world we didn’t always hate the rain

On the other side of my world I thought it’d all stay the same

Underneath a new sky.





We trade places- this rolling stone tries to be a rock

And we trade faces- when what I had ain’t what I got

on the other side of my world.





On the other side of my world they’re wasting away

On the other side of my world I hope there’s a day

At the end of this lonely night


We trade places- this rolling stone tries to be a rock

And we trade faces- when what I had ain’t what I got

on the other side of my world.




On the other side- in the other side of my world.
Track Name: Are You Still Here?
A week’s worth of dishes in the sink
I’m unable now to think anymore.
And I wonder how long you’ll put up with this
Wonder when you’ll get so sick to your core.
There’s no more illusions bright in front of me
No more shadows- stark reality, no cure.


In my mind, when you look back
That faint line, now a thick crack


I slip away to my wasteland
Closer each day to uncertain
That I’ll get back to myself and my reason
Are you still here?


It’s overwhelming to be right
When I’d secretly harbored the hope I was wrong
Keep away I don’t know if I’m dangerous
It won’t matter if we’re both courageous we’ll be gone.


In my mind, when you look back
That faint line, now a thick crack


For the weapons of our warfare we carry in our minds.
And what we choose to do with them is all we leave behind.
Track Name: My Bones
Do you want to travel west with me and become a star?
Do you want to go in debt with me? Let’s buy a car.
Do you want to trust your heart with me? You know about my past.
Do you want to trust your life with me? Give me your best.


Well, I would- if I were you,
We’ll set off on our own.
And I know we’ll be alright,
I can feel it in my bones.


Do you want to share your life with me? You asked one day.
Do you want to be a wife to me? You knew what I would say.
“Do you want to drive to Vegas now? Or wait for the dawn?”
“Do you want to cross that desert now? Before the night is gone?”


Well, I would- if I were you,
We’ll set off on our own.
And I know we’ll be alright,
I can feel it in my bones.


Do you want to share the truth with me when you’re feeling weak?
Do you want to leave things to me- when it’s hard to speak?
Do you want to stay around with me? If you’re feeling old?
Do you want to wait around for me when it’s time to go?


Well, I would- if I were you,
We’ll set off on our own.
And I know we’ll be alright,
I can feel it in my bones.

Do you want to travel west with me and become a star?
Track Name: Become Again
Since ’97 I never have looked back
Things had fallen into place, finally on track
The sun was high- and never gonna set.
I guess that I looked different in someone else’s yard
But you had already played your hand down to one last card
You thought you’d never lose- you made that bet.

But I can’t fall for you
The girl you love is someone who
I can’t become again.

You wonder where you stand- you stand alone,
Like the guy who missed the train’s face
Of dawn colored bone, that engine only goes one way.


And I can’t fall for you
The girl you love is someone who
I can’t become again.


I still want the best for you or as close as it can be
Spoils of your contrary heart were that you lost me
And it’s been a blessing to this day.


And I can’t fall for you
The girl you love is someone who
I can’t become again.
I can’t become again.
Track Name: Trading on 15
Keep pushing on
Keep it strong
Hold on tight
Before it’s gone
If it’s wrong
It’ll soon be right.


Trading forever on that 15
Making a lifetime out of one scene.


Found looking down
On the ground
In that spotlight
When He asks why
Will you lie
Or will you try


Trading forever on that 15
Making a lifetime out of one scene.


Trading forever on that 15
Making a lifetime out of one scene.

When He asks why
Will you lie
Or will you try
Track Name: Baby
No one meant for this to happen but it has.
And now we must face the consequence
As my body’s growing slowly you pretend that you don’t know me.
At least not in the carnal sense.
But you did and I did and we did and now we have
Something between us that you can’t bear.
It’s too late to step back and take a rueful look at our mistake
The issue of this whole affair.


Baby- you called me baby
And now it means so much more
Baby- you called me baby
Are you still my baby
As you close the door?


You rage at me and say “I should have known”
I’d do anything to keep a prize like you
I reply “Oh, yes, you’ve got me, I conceived it all quite purposely”
After all what would I do without my


Baby- you called me baby
And now it means so much more
Baby- you called me baby
Are you still my baby
As you close the door?


There’s a part of me that wants you to stay here
And it’s just as much a part of you
But it may be for the better if we didn’t stay together
Cause I don’t know just who is my


Baby- you called me baby
And now it means so much more
Baby- you called me baby
Are you still my baby
As you close the door?
Track Name: Leaving the Life
I’m leaving you for mama I whispered through my tears
I’ve spent a lot of time wasted many years
But it won’t be my whole life finally I see
All the things her eyes have been telling me


They say don’t do what I have done.
And they say don’t lose what I have won.
No one told all these truths to me.
So I’m leaving you for mama and the life she couldn’t leave.


I’m leaving you for mama so she can watch you go
Get that longed for vision from all those years ago
You say I won’t do better and they told her the same
But he took all the life from her the day she took his name.


And she says don’t do what I have done.
And she says don’t lose what I have won.
No one told all these truths to me.
So I’m leaving you for mama and the life she couldn’t leave.


I cannot undo the past or the lives that have been broken.
But I can offer her some peace in the path that I have chosen.


I’m leaving you for mama and all the pain she’s known.
The years of lies and neglect when she’s felt all alone.
A life of hurt and anger she doesn’t want for me.
So I’m leaving you for mama and the life she couldn’t leave
So I’m leaving you for mama- and the life she didn’t lead.
