I reach out to touch your hand

Lost again in no man’s land

Wondrin why I feel like I’m a different man

reachin out to hold your hand

Maybe we’ll hold hands when I come to be with you

That’s all the hope I have in store

When I reach out to touch you there is nothing there

It always leaves me wanting more

I want to view a crystal ball and see the time we had it all

it turns to fog when we had to watch it fall

there was a time we had it all

It’s almost science fiction how you disappeared

Way too bizarre and yet so real

one moment you were here then suddenly you’re gone

I can’t remember how to feel

I try to stop from reachin for you

It’s such a crazy thing to do

And though I know

You’re no longer with me

I never want to forget you

I took you far away from home into a realm of the unknown

It wasn’t Texas but we made it anyhow

I took you far away from home

Maybe we’ll hold hands when I come to be with you

That’s all the hope I have in store

When I reach out to touch you there is nothing there

It always leaves me wanting more

Where did you go when you left me

Move all the stars so I can see

this box of ashes leaves me so empty

where did you go when you left me

Sittin’ alone in a desert bar

watchin’ you cry on your old guitar

Play me a song to ease my pain

Tell me your dreams through your prison chains

Your eyes are sad but I feel that you once had joy

your songs are real make me feel like a teenage boy

You’ve seen dry years but your beauty’s there

Emotions you breathe layin’ you so bare

You’re pullin’ me close where I wanna go

But then I’ll make sure that you never know

Tears of age tellin’ you that nobody’s here

Singin’ words from a sad heart draws me near

Tradin’ glances lots of chances I look away

instead wantin’ somethin’ we may never have

So many things unsaid

So painfully clear the way this will go if we could be one

I already know I’ll finish my drink and then drive away

Leavin’ behind what I want to say

That’s how to survive pretend I don’t care

Tryin’ to be cool in the shield I wear

Nobody’s hurt nothin’ to start

Fulfilling the fate of two empty hearts

Sing to me for a moment

help me forget

there’s no key to reveal

how we might have met

When you told me that you loved me then

I thought you’d lost your mind

and the pressures of your life had skewed your view

That made it even easier

to tell myself the truth

that I could never have someone like you

someone like you

I found you in the nick of time

if only you could read my mind

that I have finally found the truth

forever more I’ll always love you

I never trusted happiness

it always turned on me

I’d lose the fight no matter how I tried

But then you made that subtle move

like a candle glowing bright

and happiness just dropped into my life

into my life

I think somewhere in outer space

the stars lined up for us

the meeting of our hearts was meant to be

No obstacle of time or man could separate our love

finding you was just like home to me

home to me

I found you in the nick of time

if only you could read my mind

that I have finally found the truth

forever more I’ll always love you

I never trusted happiness

it always turned on me

I’d lose the fight no matter how I tried

But then you made that subtle move

like a candle glowing bright

and happiness just dropped into my life

into my life

I found you in the nick of time

if only you could read my mind

that I have finally found the truth

forever more I’ll always love you

I found you in the nick of time

if only you could read my mind

that I have finally found the truth

forever more I’ll always love you

 

PRINCE CHARMING

Rob DiMauro – Drums

 

Cry yourself to sleep

waiting for your next Prince Charming

all the while there’s me waiting for you

You believe those movie scripts are true

that all those leading men are meant for you

Well I’ve got news for your royal highness

those guys are frozen in a plastic ice chest

and they can never love you like I do

Cry yourself to sleep

waiting for your next Prince Charming

all the while there’s me waiting for you

Why do you think that you can’t have it all

unless your shining knight is six feet tall

Well shining nights are for old star gazers

they skip around in their stiff blue blazers

and they don’t have what I can give you when you call

Cry yourself to sleep waiting for your next Prince Charming

all the while there’s me waiting for you

Circulate your network profile

we only live for a very short while

you’re wasting time when we could love today

You’re searchin’ for those castle dwelling men

surrounded by a deep moat to keep you in

You’re drinkin’ poison from a cup of royalty

you’ll never find my kind of loyalty

your true love is standing at your door

Cry yourself to sleep

waiting for your next Prince Charming

all the while there’s me waiting for you

for you to come to snap out of this dream

things aren’t what they seem

 

DESERT COOL

Rob DiMauro – Drums

 

You look good

like a goddess lookin out at the sunset

You feel nice

like a person who has just received a compliment

I’ve been surviving in this wilderness wasteland

the lack of feelin loved was shrinkin’ my waistband

Suddenly I feel this cool all around me

still tryin to figure out how you found me

What do I see face to face with me

I can’t help but pause

you must be a mirage

I’m in love and I’m leavin this desert

I’ve been saved by you

I need you like a human needs water

and you love me too

who knew

You sound good like all of nature sounds

when everything’s in harmony

You talk straight and I know

every word you say is filled with honesty

In this sea of people and sand

you’re sendin’ signals like a wave across the land

Somehow I found the right person I needed

and now we’ve got a plan we’re both gonna beat it

What did you say you’re takin’ me away

where saved lovers go

now I think I know

I’m in love and I’m leavin this desert

I’ve been saved by you

I need you like a human needs water

and you love me too

who knew

 

MY HOPE

Don Stewart – Electric guitar

Rob DiMauro – Drums

 

When I hear you wanna be near you

there’s a heat shield or a mine field gotta fight through

cuz I love you I can do this just for one kiss

I could say that I just don’t have the time

and attempt to make up some other lie

Help me out when I try to talk to you

it’ll take all I’ve got to see this through

I freeze up every time I see you smile

this has been my condition for a while

I’d never deal with this problem loosely

I want to give you my love profusely

it’s no excuse for my history of denial

It’ll take all I’ve got to see this through

but my hope is that you’ll see through me

cuz it’s true that I love you truly

and I vow this time that I won’t pass you by

Come tomorrow I don’t care what happens

cuz I know I have to tell you

that I’ve chosen this time for you to be mine

evermore

Help me out when I try to talk to you

it’ll take all I’ve got to see this through

Help me out when I try to talk to you

Help me out when I try to talk to you

It’ll take all I’ve got to see this through

Help me out when I try to talk to you

Help me out when I try to talk to you

 

ANCHOR IN THE STORM

Melissa Swingle – Vocals

Don Stewart – Acoustic and electric guitars

Chris Davis – Bass

Rob DiMauro – Percussion

 

I come to this place all alone

I’ve travelled a long way from home

It’s a lonely walk on a barren rock

in a violent sea

where is she

where is she

The blackish blue sky around me gets in my way

I see something far away

it’s an image

I think it’s her

The journey that I have embarked

to find her again in the storm

her long hair blows in a violent wind but she’s so still

The mist from the waves hurts my eyes

no force can loosen the ties that bind our hearts

forever more I’m drifting away

but the love we have and her haunting voice

beckons me

beckons me

she beckons me

she beckons me

she beckons me

 

ACROSS TEXAS

Don Stewart – Vocals and acoustic guitar

Charles Cleaver – Keyboards

 

It’s a long time to walk across Texas

to be with the one that I love

With the wind howlin’ through and around me

and her spirit is somewhere above

When her soul stirs my heart like a dust storm

when her voice whispers softly to me

I can almost see her in the sunset

and her memory wells up inside me

I can see all those stars starin’ at me

they’re so bright that it’s hard to stare back

They remind me of her in the darkness

when to please me she’d always wear black

It’s a hard life to live in the desert

where my thoughts swirl around in the storm

But it’s harder to live with myself now

since I couldn’t protect her from harm

When her soul stirs my heart like a dust storm

when her voice whispers softly to me

I can almost see her in the sunset

and her memory wells up inside me

It’s a long time to walk across Texas

to be with the one that I love

With the wind howlin’ through and around me

and her spirit is somewhere above

 

DREAMING IN LOVE

There’s those eyes again that keep me wide awake

There’s those lips again that keep me up so late

Dreamin' in love again

thinkin' bout where and when

There’s that face again that keeps me so enthralled

There’s those hips again

there ought to be a law

I can’t go to sleep

it’s ten after three

I wanna give her a call

Dreamin' in love again

thinkin' bout where and when

dreamin’ in love again

I hope that this never ends

There’s that hair again I love the way it parts

There’s that voice again it’s music to my heart

She’s gotten to me it’s so plain to see she’s shakin' it in my head

My focus is out what’s this all about I oughta be asleep instead

Dreamin' in love again

thinkin' bout where and when

dreamin’ in love again

I hope that this never ends

I could tell you that I love you every night and day

I could whisper that I cling to every word you say

To say words to touch you

to make you understand

I love you much more than all the phrases known to man

I could lead you through the darkness

always by your side

you could trust me holding tightly

walking in the light

Hand in hand we’ll be together

through the violent storm

hearts of fire forged in love

bonded forevermore

To speak the truth

to feel your lips

to make you comprehend

I need you and always will

my love will never end

To say I love you I say I love you

to say I need you I say I need you

to say I want you I say I want you

To say I love you I say I love you today

I could tell you I could tell you I could tell you I could tell you

I could tell you I could tell you I could tell you I could tell you

I could tell you I could tell you I could tell you I could tell you

 

SHINING STAR

Don Stewart – Electric guitar solo

Rob DiMauro – Drums

 

It’s so hard without you

I almost had a wreck in my car

everything’s about you

a lot’s written about where you are

I’m not over you and that I can’t deny

I’ve tried so hard but I can’t say goodbye

I need to know a number to reach you

a street address and zip code would help too

all that I am and all I’ll ever be

connects with who you are

my shining star

Started thinkin bout you again

can’t admit that I lost my way

you distracted my heart for so long

and it’s gotten much worse since you’re gone

I can’t sleep too soundly

memories of you intervene

places all around me

all the spots where you were last seen

I’m not over you and that I can’t deny

I’ve tried so hard to but I can’t say goodbye

I need to know a number to reach you

a street address and zip code would help too

all that I am and all I’ll ever be

connects with who you are

my shining star

I’m not over you and that I can’t deny

I’ve tried so hard to

but I just can’t say goodbye

 

WHISPERS IN MY HEART

Aubrey Herbert – Vocals

Charles Cleaver – Keyboards and accordion

Wylie Pamplin – Lap steel guitar

Rob DiMauro – Percussion

Gabe Reynolds – Glockenspiel

 

Whispers in my heart so silent to hear

sometimes in the night I can still feel you here

The presence of your spirit in the core of my soul

a moment to remind me that you’re what made me whole

It’s not for me to know when you will come again

my walls fall all around me to let you enter in

Oh quiet sound of love

fill me with your soft kiss

I wake just like a hunted fox for fear I might miss this

Oh quiet sound of love

oh quiet sound of love

To die is evermore

awake me oh my heart

something inside tells me we will never part

The depth of my soul will always be yours

your memory is too much for me to endure

The passion of our love is still deep inside

when I feel you close no darkness tonight

Before I can move I think that I can hear your voice

oh so soft

your heartbeat so near

Passion of our love

passion of our love

Whispers in my heart so silent to hear

sometimes in the night I can still feel you here

The presence of your spirit in the core of my soul

a moment to remind me that you’re what made me whole

Whispers in my heart

whispers in my heart

 

CAN'T EXPLAIN YOU

Don Stewart – Vocals and acoustic guitar

Charles Cleaver – Accordion

 

I can’t find the words to explain who you are

my head spins around

Like an old bumper car

and not only that I’m in love with you too

it’s just that I can’t explain you

The way that I think of you all of the time

in some places could be considered a crime

and maybe we’ll cause a big hullabaloo

it’s just that I can’t explain you

The scent of your hair

the touch of your skin

the way that I feel when I see you walk in

I lose track of time when I feel your soft kiss

I don’t know how to describe this

When we’re out together

I see the guys flirt

I try to pretend that it doesn’t hurt

I’d say I don’t care

but it wouldn’t be true

it’s just that I can’t explain you

What do I say

I’ve loved you for so many years

where are the words that tell of our laughter and tears

The way that you look when you’re pulling out weeds

the way that you always know just what I need

you’re beautiful every part of the day

to try and explain there’s no way

I love you so much

there’s no words to explain

it feels like our love must have been pre-ordained

if you ever left I don’t know what I’d do

it’s just that I can’t explain you

it’s just that I can’t explain you
