Credits: Arthur Alligood- Acoustic guitar, vocals Jake Bradley- Upright bass Kenny Hutson- Organ You got walls I can't see You got dreams you can't set free Behind every storm cloud there shines the brightest star Come on baby, show some heart When'd you lock the door? When'd you say no more? Had love just ended before you got to start? Come on baby, show some heart I'm not blind I see it in your eyes There's more than you let on There's more than just your sad, sad song I've always known the truth the whole world knows it too There's a fire beneath the surface we'll all settle for just one spark Come on baby, show some heart Come on baby, show some heart

It keeps breaking Keep the pace up, I will keep the pace up Break your walls down, I will break your walls down Stop your crying, let me do the crying How truth it rolls down sweet and soft from a friend!

She never said out loud Surely all the words got dammed up at the mouth

Credits: Arthur Alligood- Acoustic guitar, vocals Kenny Hutson- Pedal steel, organ I can't make it on my own I can't make it on my own All these years of trying have taken their toll I can't make it on my own I can't take another night I can't take another night I always end up in the darkness waiting on the light I can't take another night You're gonna have to piece me together Piece me whole Piece me together to get me home I can't make it on my own I can't make it on my own Like a lost child I have wandered, but in my heart now I know I can't make it on my own

I'm gonna make her smile I'm gonna make her smile if it takes an age or just a while Docked beside the houses, but none of them were hers followed to her front door, all the way to Illinois Treasure there I found it far away from sea and sand Farmer's daughter she had been In the corn I kissed her neck scared as boys of bully's threats The howl of herald waters another voyage to embark could see the crew at every turn hanging on my every word A promise is a compass always pointing north She followed it when I left as the letter did direct Over and over and over she read

*Inspired by Sally Lloyd-Jones' take on the story of the Great Deluge. Credits: Arthur Alligood- Vocals Kenny Hutson- Electric and acoustic guitars, keys, mando-guitar, bass Jon Radford- drums Emily Deloach- BGV's Was it a riddle there in the sky? Was it a new hello or the last goodbye? Scarred and a skeptic though I survived You had to flood me out just to drain me dry There in the clouds it hung where the storm meets the sun I was a warrior done with the fight You were shooting your arrows left and right Was there an apple there on my head? Or was my heart the bullseye and the target? You had to bend the light, to prove the fight that the day was worth the night, the day was worth the night You had to bend the light

Credits: Arthur Alligood- Acoustic guitar, vocals Kenny Hutson- Mando-guitar, organ I've seen leaves fall down like snowflakes I've seen hatred get the best of men I've seen buildings all in pieces, but I have not seen the wind I've seen geese fly straight as an arrow I've seen love cover over our sins I've seen parting be such sweet sorrow, but I have not seen the wind And I know I'm not alone I've seen sunsets over the ocean I've seen peace stay just out of hand I've seen hearts wound one another, but I have not seen the wind I've seen seeds grow into flowers I've seen justice rolling round the bend I've seen fear turn men into cowards, but I have not seen the wind
