Another morning after dawn And I been driving on too long Little songbird in my mind And another dirty motel left behind me All your exploits and you sin Didn’t take the honey from your skin Love makes us all children Again and again and again It’s you It’s you for me We stopped for fruit at a roadside stand The desert air, warm and thin I lost my way that night when the sun went down You’re heart is a gypsy town It’s you It’s you for me Piano keys are dusty now Wish I’d learned to play I’d sing a song about my broken heart And how I got this way Written by Kristen Ward All Rights Reserved © 2010

Maybe, maybe you’ll go and let me move on But you drink too much and make me fall apart Then you love me up and promise a new start And I forget just how and who we are And I forget we ought to be apart But maybe, maybe you’ll go and let me move on But I dream of you and it all feels real again You loved me once and the rest I pretend And I’ll be glad to play the fool again And I’ll be glad to take you back again And return to places all the roads will go Places where the faces we all know And I will try to call it something new That's the way that I return to you Maybe, maybe you’ll go and let me move on Written by Kristen Ward All Rights Reserved © 2010

Where the clouds And the wind And the rivers begin I will see my baby Once again In the sky With the birds Were the silence is heard I will see my baby Once again Way on high In that place Oh the endless space I will see my baby Once again He will know That it’s me And together we’ll be When I see my baby Once again In..... San Sebastian del Oeste San Sebastian del Oeste On the side Of a hill Where the time stands still And I whispered I love you I always will Under night Under sun I don’t know what you done But I love you the same You’re my only one Oh the peace That I found In this Mexico town Only peace that I know Since you let me down And to be Like we were No I won’t want for more For one night will you love me Like you did before In.....

Ain’t no good times Now you’re gone Ain’t no sunshine Now you’re gone Take a walk beside the bay Watch the water stretch out long Ain’t no dreams Coming true Ain’t no getting Over you Thought we’d leave this town someday I thought so many things You were the one My life is done Now you’re gone Now you’re gone Ain’t no babies Now you’re gone Ain’t no family Now you’re gone I spend all my time alone Dreaming about my folks and my home Ain’t no dreams Coming true Ain’t no getting Over you Ain’t no dreams coming true Ain’t no getting over you You were the one My life is done Now you’re gone Now you’re gone Since you gone Oh you’re gone Written by Kristen Ward All Rights Reserved © 2010

Work like a dog in Western Washington Felt my heartbeat stop before it had begun When I first saw you, I knew I’m gonna die of a broken heart Been thinking hard about a better place I close my eyes, I can see you boyish face again Start weeping and I knew I’m gonna die of a broken heart Just the grace of God that kept me in your mind Nothing more wrong than being left behind You packed your bags, and I knew I’m gonna die of a broken heart In Colorado the mountains are so high A pretty face there might take me from your mind I lay down last night and I knew I’m gonna die of a broken heart Written by Kristen Ward All Rights Reserved © 2010

Like a river I’ve always known Keep on rolling But I have no home The water’s blue So am I Passing through All my time I pass through canyons With bloodied walls Saw the towns that had no gold I stood at the edge of no mans land And polished stones while they got old And I’m still, still waiting on my… Blue river man Blue river man There’s an old house Down by the ocean I saw it white With a white porch too I ‘d like to lead A life of devotion I’d like to live there Just me and you Stop you rambling, stop your rolling Stay in the still water pool Cleans your wounds before the ocean Treat me right don’t be a fool Don’t be a fool, don’t be a fool, don’t be a fool Just be my blue river man Blue river man Blue river man Blue river man Written by Kristen Ward All Rights Reserved © 2010

Was the last thing you said kind or sweet Well I don’t remember that now And the girl who loves you will lie at your feet But you never never knew how How to love me How to love me How to love me How to love me, you never knew how Was the last time we touched crazy and wild Well I wish I could feel like that now I’m the girl who loved you and made you smile And I won’t forget for a while How you kissed me How you kissed me How you kissed me But to love me you never knew how Did you mean it when you say you’re my man Cause you never admit to a lie And the girl who loves you won’t ask you twice To say what you know makes her cry How you fool me How you fool me How you fool me But to love me you never knew how How to love me How to love me How to love me How to love me, you never knew how Written by Kristen Ward All Rights Reserved © 2010
