Track Name: Love Is Red
LOVE IS RED
By David Poe
© 2005 Charming Marytr Music/BMI

I'LL DRINK WHISKEY FROM THE BOTTLE
I'LL DRINK SHERRY OR MOONSHINE
BUT MY LOVE IS LIKE A RARE, RED WINE:
A SACRAMENT,
EXQUISITE,
HARD TO FIND

THE GLADIOLAS IN SLOW MOTION
SCAR OF TULIPS IN THE SNOW
BUT MY LOVE IS LIKE A RED, RED ROSE:
COVETED,
EXPENSIVE,
HARD TO GROW

IS SHE SCREAMING BLOODY MURDER?
IS SHE THROWN ACROSS THE BED?
MY LOVE IS RED AS ANY CRIME SCENE
FROM THE CURTAINS TO THE CARPET, MAN
IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN
THERE IS NO OTHER COLOR SCHEME
MY LOVE IS RED AS RED AS RED CAN BE

THERE ARE FIREWORKS OVER THE SKYLINE
FIRE ENGINE DOWN THE STREET
BUT MY LOVE IS RED AS SUNSET ON THE SEA
MY LOVE IS RED
TOO VIVID
TO BE BELIEVED
MY LOVE IS RED

DOXOLOGY

I went home for Christmas
I went home for Christmas
I saw it from the highway
Home for the holidays

I went home for Christmas
and tried to mend some fences
One of all my old girlfriends
and all of her children

And for a second
I saw it all again
I saw it all again
World without end

I went home for Christmas
But it was not so bad
Driving with my mother
Talking about my dad

Why don't I get married
So I start driving faster
'Cause every love I've ever had
Has ended in disaster
I am not so green
I'm changing like the scenery
I went home for Christmas

And for a second
I saw it all again
I saw it all again
World without end
Track Name: So Beautiful
SO BEAUTIFUL

When you are traveling far from home
You think about it everywhere you go

You'll find love again
You'll find love again
You'll find love

When you are lonely in your bed
Nothing but memories in your head

You'll find love again
You'll find love again
You'll find love

'Cause you're so beautiful
You're so beautiful and i'm so sorry

When you are tired of being true
and the eyes of a stranger set on you

You'll find love again
You'll find love
'Cause you're so beautiful

You're so beautiful
You're so beautiful and i'm so sorry
You're so beautiful
You're so beautiful and i'm so sorry
You're so beautiful
You're so beautiful and i'm so sorry
Track Name: You're The Bomb (live)
YOU'RE THE BOMB
By David Poe
© 2003 Charming Martyr/BMI.

THEY MADE YOU UP IN SECRET
YOU'RE THE BOMB
YOU'RE MY MANHATTAN PROJECT
WITHOUT WARNING, WITHOUT A SOUND
YOU HIT THE GROUND

YOU'RE THE BOMB
A FLASH OF BLINDING LIGHT
AND THEN YOU'RE GONE
INTO THAT GOOD NIGHT
WE'LL LET HISTORY DECIDE
IF WE'RE RIGHT OR WRONG

YOU AND I SET THE TOWN ON FIRE
BRIGHTER AND HOTTER THAN THE RISING SUN
FLYING HIGH
THE CITY LIGHTS WERE SHINING RIGHT BELOW
I LET YOU GO
WHAT HAVE I DONE?

YOU'RE THE BOMB
YOU CAME DOWN FROM ABOVE
AND BROKE THE CALM
MY TERRIFYING LOVE
BUT YOU SEEMED WORTH FIGHTING FOR AT THE TIME
YOU WERE MY WORLD, WAR, CRIME
Track Name: Wilderness (live)
WILDERNESS
By David Poe
© 2005 Charming Martyr/BMI

DEAD EVERGREEN
STILL WHISPERING
THE WARMER BIRDS ALREADY FLOWN
WET WITH RAIN,
A STRETCH OF TWINE LAIN
BETWEEN THE EARTH AND THE DIRTY ROAD

DON'T YOU CRY
WE CAN HIDE HERE
DISAPPEAR INTO THE WEST
YOU ARE CLEAN
QUIET AS SNOW
DARKER THAN A FOREST

YOU ARE MY WILDERNESS

UNDERGROUND
TRAIN UPTOWN
TAKES THE TIME THAT IT TAKES
SO MANY FACES
THE HUMAN RACES
WHEELS OF PROGRESS, AND THE BRAKES

IF THE TREES ARE
THE LUNGS OF THE WORLD
THE CITY IS HER CIGARETTE
YOU'RE A MYSTERY
DEEPER THAN THE SEA
AND FRAGILE AS A STARLING'S NECK

YOU ARE MY WILDERNESS

HISTORY'S WHORE
WILL WIN THE WAR
AND TELL THE STORY TO HER CHILD
THE NATIONAL JONES
WILL KICK THE STONES
AND EAT ITS WAY INTO THE WILD

DON'T YOU CRY
FOR THE HOLE IN THE SKY
LAY ME DOWN YOUR RIVERBED
YOU ARE CLEAN
QUIET AS THE SNOW
DARKER THAN A FOREST

YOU ARE MY WILDERNESS
