Unbalanced 05:41
(Michael Roe/Mark Harmon/Bruce Spencer) I come with lines, you talk in circles I own the blues, you rent the color purple I scream for ice cream, you whisper for wine You do your life, baby I do my time I've got time, you've got none You know all and I know some I fall short, you stand tall You conceal and I show it all I like playgrounds, you love games I nail things down and you rearrange You loved early and I love late You throw the dishes, babe I just clean my plate repeat chorus You plant a family, I dig a space I watch my back while you wash your face You work for money and I play for fun Babe you're so inviting but I still can't come When I think of getting deeper with it baby You throw on something deep and purple baby Unlike me diggin' Donnie Lee and the Children of Truth babe Sit down! Shut up! listen to me go crazy... repeat chorus twice, substitute last line with: you conceive and I abort all repeat chorus hey, yeah, I show it yeah, show it- don't blow it hey- hey- owwwww! too much baby, alright © 1999 7 And 7 Is Music (ASCAP)

Sevens 05:17
(Michael Roe/Mark Harmon/Bruce Spencer) Did you know my eyes were blue? The day we met my heart was too Now you say the color's changed You're staring down a darker shade of the man you knew He painted on your shoulder blade A love declared, a cheap display scarred for life, your choice is always made A paradise is what you throw away, throw away... Seven come eleven, roll me baby Blind faith in the call you'll make If I play pokerface and walk away You'll throw sevens Underneath the sea of love We always set our sails above You knew not to push until I shoved Hard enough to feel the tidal wave I was there to see that you were safe From every little storm that ever raged Now we're drowning and there's nothing left to save Can you see me? Tossing my love overboard and I'm blown away... REPEAT CHORUS Here's your lucky day, you got all you wanted from me Roll another bone for your history You don't know what you're doing You don't know at all Burning down your love like a cigarette You burn it down 'til there's nothing left. You don't know what you'll ruin You don't know at all You can't bet on your love like a winning hand Suck it up 'til the money's all gone. You don't know what your running Your game is gonna fall Throwing down your love 'til there's nothing left... There's nothing left.... © 1999 7 And 7 Is Music (ASCAP)

(Michael Roe/Mark Harmon/Bruce Spencer) I was lying on the inside All snuggled safe and warm Now I'm crying on the outside 'cuz all my keys won't fit the door I'd survive in sunny weather A little rainfall now and then But I can't abide this endless desert storm of dry bones, sand, and wind And so I say, I don't know why, I don't know why The years go down, the years turn 'round And now it's comin' down it's comin' down again Was I ever on the inside? Time was on my side for so long 'Til it said so long to me Then it fled and left for dead this dying body on some dead man's property Did I fall down on the first round? Will I get up for the last? Too many choices wrong and oh so long forgotten buried deep inside my little shallow past What can I say? I don't know why, I don't know why (deep water stranded high and dry) The years go down, the years turn 'round And now it's comin' down it's comin' 'round again I looked happy on the outside To the world, to the world, say it again The years go down, the years turn 'round And now it's comin' down it's comin' down again I was happy on the outside To the world, to the world, to the world I realize I'm outside Every day, every night Will I ever get it right? I realize You're inside You and me, could it be I'm set free I realize I'm outside Clinging to the past My world is dying and I keep on crying watching every precious day go right on past And so I say I don't know why, I don't know why Everybody has to die The years go down, the years turn 'round And it's comin' down, comin' down 'til everybody's in the ground Are you happy on the inside? To the world, to the world, say it again The years go down, the years turn 'round And it's comin' down, comin' down 'til everybody's in the ground Are you happy on the inside? © 1999 7 And 7 Is Music (ASCAP)

(Michael Roe/Mark Harmon/Bruce Spencer) Look in my eyes again As blue as they've ever been but so far down is not the end I got a little crazy Left you out in a purple haze Now and then, I wonder How you've been, babe? Will you want it Will you believe it Knowing you'll live for ever and ever never alone in a life going home is the best I have... is the best I have... I had a dream, I saw you Left me in tears and swollen eyes Come back baby while there's still time Please let me hold you and tell you that all that I have in hope for you One more time together I'd think about that if you wanted CHORUS Come to me, I want you to come back and see Take the lovin' when you come to me, you come to me It's possible to feel little lost 'til your heart unwinds Give it time CHORUS © 1999 7 And 7 Is Music (ASCAP)

(Michael Roe/Mark Harmon/Bruce Spencer) Moline Saying what she didn't mean Making like a Dairy Queen Milking me when I was never gonna be the king Well, I swear She feathered up her little nest to treat me like a little guest She got the best and I swallowed all the rest All she needed was a blue sky hangin' 'round To keep the rain from coming down I fell Ran off half cocked pell mell Got caught smoking in her little hell Devil or angel, I could never tell I jumped fence Now I'm living in the present tense No more little accidents No more sideshow me the main event All she needed was a blue sky hangin' 'round To keep the rain from coming down All she needed was a blue sky hangin' 'round I need to know, I need to go No rain No rain I got caught in the rain before Telling you baby, won't get caught no more All she needed was a blue sky hangin' 'round All she needed was a blue train leaving town All she needed was a blue sky hangin' 'round I need to know, I need to go All she needed was a blue sky hangin' 'round All she needed was a blue train leaving town All she needed was a blue sky hangin' 'round All she needed All she needed All she needed © 1999 7 And 7 Is Music (ASCAP)

(Michael Roe/Mark Harmon/Bruce Spencer) You make a lot of money She makes a lot of time Counts it out and hands it over to you Never asking nothing in return 'Cuz she trusts you Believes in you too You go around in circles She goes home alone You could be there with her But she's still on her own She's not looking for miracles She's just looking for love All she wants is you, because that's enough She makes it all so easy You make it all so hard You've give her dirt And tie her to the earth She plants another flower in the sand You got all the best excuses in the world But they're not reasons They don't even rhyme She's a good woman But you treat her like a bad little girl She's a loser In your little game The victim of your big crime She's always trying to work it out You're only trying just to fit her in To your self-serving plans and schemes She thinks you're worth it So she hangs around And hangs another day on shattered hopes And battered little dreams You trample down your dirt And harvest weeds Her love grows And she waters it so carefully You scatter all her seedlings With one wave of your hand And she plants another flower in the sand © 1995 7 And 7 Is Music (ASCAP)

(Bill Sprouse Jr.) Well, I've been drivin' all night And I know I'm gettin' tired But I havn't got far to go Think I'll push this southbound eighteen wheeler A little farther on down the road I've been drivin' like a fool, Dodgin' all the truck stops tryin' hard to make it home I gotta' put the hammer down Drive it in the ground Think I'm goin' crazy just from Drivin' alone Well, my eyes are gettin' heavy And I ran out of vitamins Six or seven hours ago So I thought I'd try to raise me a northbound jimmy On my C.B. radio I was breakin' for a copy When someone answered back In a voice that was sweet and low He said, "I'm gonna' lay it on you Where the rubber meets the road It's the Lord talkin' to you On your radio Chorus: It was the voice of Jesus And I heard him say, "Got an angel ridin' shotgun And he's ridin' with you all the way" I was flyin' like the wind Breathin' fire like a dragon When my diesel truck left the ground Well, I thought that I was dreamin' But the Lord was talkin' to me Really layin' the gospel down I was prayin' and repentin', laughin' and grinnin' Thought my diesel truck was heaven bound Then the angel hit the air brakes And slowed my jimmy down Made a three point landin' About a mile from town Repeat Chorus © 1977 Maranatha!

(Michael Roe) forget about me and the day we met forget all of the foolish dreams we had one thing to remember, don't forget the one and only good thing that i said was that i love you and i know, i know you must have loved me too but the whole thing wasn't right and now i know that you must go go with God but go seems we always had something or someone standing somewhere in between us with a gun flaunting everything that they achieved making everything we had going look cheap well it wasn't true and now we know but for too long we believed that it was so till it ground us right down to the floor and now we're gone gone with God but gone so i packed it up for places unknown leaving everything i held so dear and warm now i can't hold on to nothing anymore i lost my grip one too many times before well it's too late to go back there i know and it's too cold to sit here in the snow so it's upward and onward hi-de-ho and let it go go with God but go © 1995 7 And 7 Is Music (ASCAP)

(Michael Roe/David Leonhardt) I've got a feelin' I'll be headin' down for good Got that feelin' I'm never gonna do the things I should I'm caught in this world Heaven sent but hell possessed Feeling grey since my black went white Yes means no and no means yes I do believe I finally need a Saviour at last I never saw the need before, but now That time has passed No ifs ands or buts This ol' world has kicked my ass I alternate Between fantasy And the cold hard truth I oscillate Between the cool and the uncouth But I resonate To the piercing eyes of God I saw in my youth Where did He go? What is He thinking about me now? Am I a delight to Him or Little more than a holy cow? Moo moo baby Feel I been milked down Brown how now © 1994 Fools Of The World, LTD. (ASCAP)

(W. Phillips) Some people preaching They do very well They take all your money And you can go to hell And that's all That's all When you could have Jesus And that's all You can go to your college You can go to your school If you ain't got Jesus You're just an educated fool And that's all That's all You gotta have Jesus now And that's all If you pardon me sir You ain't doin' too well You spend your whole life sinning And you're going to hell And that's all But that ain't all Cuz you could have Jesus now And that's all It's good to stand together It's bad to stand apart The only ones going to heaven Are the pure in heart And that's all That's all You better get Jesus now And that's all Jesus is coming back on the dividing day Taking in the sheep Turning the goats away That'll be all now That'll be all You better take Jesus now And that's all
