Track Name: Medicine Man
She got the red ones, blue ones, yellow ones
There ain’t no shame
You see the Devil’s on the corner
She calls you by your name
She just wants to get you high
So get your fix, get your kicks
Until you’re bloodshot in your eyes

Honey, I’ll be your medicine man

She’s has your pills, get your thrills
When you’re beggin’ you best say please
You see the curse in her world
Once you’re there you can not leave
She just wants to take a ride
So get your fix, get your kicks
Because you’re tangled up in her lies

Honey, I’ll be your medicine man
Track Name: The Willow Weeps
Lay me down but please don't take her
Lay me down
Track Name: Lay Me Down
The Screech of the tires
Child didn’t make a sound
Knuckles turned white
The car flipped the tree stopped
The willow gonna weep before the shadows can hide
I’d love to just hold you
And tell you, my darling, everything will be all right

Lay me down but please don’t take her
Lay me down before hallowed eyes

The glare not the shadows stole me for a second
Suddenly a curve
The sky came, the ground came
Over and over
The willow weeps down
The last thing I saw was the reflection in the mirror
Colorful were her eyes

Lay me down but please don’t take her
Lay me down before hallowed eyes
Lay me down but please don’t let her cry

I’d love to just hold you
Remember my darling
I’ll be watching you from the sky

Lay me down but please don’t take her
Lay me down before hallowed eyes
Lay me down but please don’t let her die
Track Name: Lost Weekend
Please, please me darling
Let’s bleed this sunrise dry
Please, please me honey
Let’s bleed our love tonight

We’re on a lost weekend
While the city sleeps
I do not see an end
We’re on a lost weekend
We’re on a moonlight waltz
Through this sky of love again

I need ya honey
Let’s steal this moon tonight
I need a little something
To feel that touch tonight

I see love through the bottle
I see love tonight
I’ve seen a little bit of everything
We’ve been low
Next thing we’ll be high
Track Name: I See Your Sadness
I would take your sadness
And put it in a box
And when it’s time for you to leave
I’ll make sure it’s unlocked
You can take that sadness
And bury it down deep
Along with all the others
Where your ghosts and demons sleep

I see your sadness
Ain’t that pretty
I see your sadness
Ain’t that a beautiful thing

I’m giving you a present
A locket, it’s on a string
When you’re alone please open it
See what feelings it brings
What we had, it wasn’t bad
Just wasn’t what you need
Searching. Too much evidence
It surely made you leave

I give myself a locket
I wear it around my neck
Mirrors are my enemy
They let me see what’s next
I would take that sadness
And bury it down deep
Along with all the others
Where my ghosts and demons creep

I see your sadness
Ain’t that pretty
I see your sadness
Ain’t that a beautiful thing
You have become my sadness
You are my sadness
Ain’t that a beautiful thing
Track Name: Boneyard
Street lights shining down on me
Red lights. Through that curtain I can see
Sunrise came a little quick again tonight
Red lights lead me straight to a friend on the inside

I throw you straight back
Down in the boneyard
I made another friend
All the other girls can tell you
What’s in the boneyard

Sweet eyes sure can tell a lie
Sometimes the wind whispers straight to that night
My Deaf ears. Honey tell me what I want to hear
Sometimes I need a little love, so you took me there

You came back. You’ve got that sinners grin
You’ve done bad. Honey I can not let you in
I might crack. I could use a little love tonight
I lost track. I needed that love and you took me there
Track Name: Old Enough For Me
Won’t you take a bite
The apple so bright
That serpent smile might
Take us by the hand tonight

All you gotta be
Is old enough for me

What daddy don’t know
Mamma, never tell him
You’re back stage at the show
I ain’t one to beg

All you gotta be
Is old enough for me
Come on girl
Won’t you give it to me?

There’s a whisper in my ear
Telling me that you’re near
That apple in your hand
The serpent smiles as he leaves here
Track Name: Devil's Daughter
I said, I don’t care if she’s the Devil’s daughter
Still I dare dip my toes and test the waters

I said, I don’t care if she’s the Devil’s daughter
Still I dare dip my toes in desperate waters

The river it ain’t so quiet
The stream it is so calm
We drift like broken branches
We’ve got to get back home
The river it takes me under
It takes me by the hand
We drift like broken branches
We end up on the sand
