LYRICS

1. Looking for Moses

Lyrics by: Brigitte DeMeyer
Music by: Brigitte DeMeyer and Brady Blade
©2007 BDM Music

One man’s laugh is another man’s blue
One girls’ lie, is another girls’ truth
One man’s win is another’s false move
One beginning is another day’s through

I’ve been looking for Moses
To get me over
Too big an ocean for wading through
I’ve been looking for Moses
To get to you

Too many stories from too many tries
Too many worries just biding their time
Too many days I wish I could fly
Too much love spent to say goodbye

I’ve been looking for Moses
To get me over
Too big an ocean for wading through
I’ve been looking for Moses
To get to you

2. Without You

Lyrics and Music by: Brigitte DeMeyer
©2007 BDM Music

How many times
Must I say goodbye
‘Til I’m through, ’til I’m through

And how many lies
Did you tell and I
Never knew, never knew

How many why’s must I ask myself
How many skies must I up and sail

How many nights
Must I spend still I’m
Without you, without you

SOLO

REPEAT

3. Wicked to Win

Lyrics and Music By: Brigitte DeMeyer; Copyright
©2007 BDM Music

41 and 20 was the number to the name
Reported plenty true believers to their grave
Put all them die hard love and leavers right to shame
Oh lordy lordy dear encumber me again

Stir me up sit me down
Get on underneath my skin
Too lucky to lose, too wicked to win

Got me for a penny, or was it just your pretty face
Good enough as any here come I still in the game
Love’s mistaken me for someone come and gone
Tried and tried yet to abide this knot won’t come undone

Stir me up sit me down
Get on underneath my skin
Too lucky to lose, too wicked to win

Loving you was more or less like I was doing time
Come down to the end then head back up the other side
My better judgement’s up and left me now for weeks
Though your love ain’t bona fide it’s tugging on my sleeve

Stir me up sit me down
Get on underneath my skin
Too lucky to lose, too wicked to win

4. Bird

Lyrics and Music by: Brigitte DeMeyer
©2007 BDM Music

Bird
She says she’s gonna fly tonight
She’s never gonna try tonight
She’s caging like a queen

What
Is she ever gonna do now
Painted up in all that truth has
Got her loaded like a spring

If you look past the willows
Under all that weeping
Love’s only sleeping
It ain’t gone for good

Heaven
Is a needle for the threading
Leave this world unleavened
You may never hit the door

Listen
You might just hear the whisper
Of the seven sisters
Calling you to shore

If you look past the willows
Under all that weeping
Love’s only sleeping
It ain’t gone for good

5. Shepherd

Lyrics and Music By: Brigitte DeMeyer
©2007 BDM Music

It came upon a day so clear
I could see Heaven from here
A letter from an angel said
That I should lead this innocent

Oh Lord
Make a shepherd out of me
Oh Lord
Make a shepherd out of me

Never was inclined to keep
Any soul upon a leash
Help me shield the child to find
He safe in slumber keeps

Oh Lord
Make a shepherd out of me
Oh Lord
Make a shepherd out of me

Teach me to be faithful
Teach me to be kind
Lead me to the table where
Your wisdom I may find

Keep me ever mindful
With a watchful eye
Deep within to understand your
Way beyond me binds

Oh Lord
Make a shepherd out of me
Oh Lord
Make a shepherd out of me

6. Justice

Lyrics By: Brigitte DeMeyer
Music by Brigitte DeMeyer and Brady Blade
©2007 BDM Music

Plum tuckered, out of sleep
Didn’t get to bed ’til three
I picture you, I picture me
I picture synchronicity

Inside out but looking good
Zigzaggin’ the neighborhood
Truth be known, the holy grail
Leave it up to heads or tails

Justice please forgive me
For what I have done
Some days you gotta stand
And some days you gotta run

Fast and forward to the day
Balance due is overpaid
Bittersweet simplicity
You’re fresh out of hooks in me

Justice please forgive me
For what I have done
Some days you gotta stand
And some days you gotta run

7. All You’ve Got To Lose

Lyrics and Music By: Brigitte DeMeyer
©2007 BDM Music

The light is sinking in your eyes
Winter caught on by surprise and
Yesterday’s been holding on like glue

Dark’s been coming fast these days
You try to swat the cues away but
All you see is all that’s left of you

And everything that used to come up roses
Seems to keep on coming up no use
And all the arrows telling you you’re going
Don’t know a thing about all you’ve got to lose

Memories held like a baby
Running off of you like gravy
Got a way of holding back the days

If I could I’d fill the hollow
With all the love that you can swallow
Just to get you in the air again

And everything that used to come up roses
Seems to keep on coming up no use
And all the arrows telling you you’re going
Don’t know a thing about all you’ve got to lose

8. Sweet Lady Rosa

Words and Music by Brigitte DeMeyer
©2007 BDM Music

Sugar in the corn bread
Rye when you’re half dead
Wielding a skillet
At the drop of a pang

You choose to cross her
Like juicing the boss dear
It’ll come back to bite you
Sure as you got a name

Sweet lady Rosa
Red river flower
Pocketbook outlaw with one hand on the gun
Swears on her life and you
Know that you’re covered and you’ll
Never keep up but you’ll have a good run

Don’t get me wrong
If you’re looking for love
You won’t find no water
Running deeper than her

It don’t take long
’til she’s got your number
The truest of true
Ain’t got nothing on her

Sweet lady Rosa
Red river flower
Pocketbook outlaw with one hand on the gun
Swears on her life and you
Know that you’re covered and you’ll
Never keep up but you’ll have a good run

9. A Moment’s Refugee

Lyrics by: Brigitte DeMeyer
Music By: Brigitte DeMeyer and Brady Blade
©2007 BDM Music

How the minutes run aground
Reckless and yet tender found
Days beloved we’re endowed
Disappear without a sound

Constant as a soldiers drum
Is the calling of my heart
Sweet remains thy faithful strum
Harkening to love’s embark

I am a moments’ refugee
And in these hours do I seek
Love beyond this day to last
Long enough to capture me

If I could would I ignite
Ardor pure and fine unsheathed
Hoist away this heavy sigh
Beckoning a breaths relief

I am a moments’ refugee
And in these hours do I seek
Love beyond this day to last
Long enough to capture me

10. Runnin’ on You

Lyrics By: Brigitte DeMeyer
Music by: Brigitte DeMeyer and Brady Blade
©2007 BDM Music

Sometimes I feel
It’s just like these bones ain’t mine
Sometimes it seems
Just like I’ve been too low flying

If the ride ain’t got no roll
And the trying ain’t no use
I’ll still make it through
I’ll be running on you

You give
You earn
But some days you feel the burn

Empty
And done
You still got to get up and run

If the ride ain’t got no roll
And the trying ain’t no use
I’ll still make it through
I’ll be running on you

11. Meant For Mine

Lyrics By: Brigitte DeMeyer
Music by: Brigitte DeMeyer and Brady Blade
©2007 BDM Music

Lone child
Pure and wild
Rode in on a prayer tonight

Golden
Story yet untold
Wrapped up in these wishes of mine

Of all the eyes yet to behold you
May ours intertwine
Of all the arms yet to enfold you
You were meant for mine

Unto you
My love is spun
Following which ever way you run

May your
Days be kind
And forever may you shine

Of all the eyes yet to behold you
May ours intertwine
Of all the arms yet to enfold you
You were meant for mine

12. An Old Song

Lyrics and Music by: Phil Madeira & Jimmie Lee Sloas Hay
4 Hoss / WB Music / EMI Music Publishing (ASCAP)

There’s no song
Like an old song
It knows just how you feel

There’s no friend
Like an old friend
She knows how to tell you just what’s real

There’s no dog
Like an old dog
He sees your every move

There’s no scotch
Like an old scotch
When you’re all alone with the truth

Lately
I can’t seem
To shake off these old low down blues
There’s no love
Like no love
And there’s not one old thing I can do

There no chair
Like that old chair
Where he would fall asleep

There’s no hurt
Like an old hurt
It knows all the secrets that you keep

Maybe
Today he
Will call and say I still love you
There’s no love
Like no love
And there’s not one old thing I can do

13. When I’m Gone

Lyrics and music by: Brigitte DeMeyer
©2007 BDM Music

I won’t care
Which way the river runs
I won’t care when I’m gone
I won’t care ’bout
All the things you done
When I’m gone
When I’m gone

I won’t say
I ain’t never come undone
I won’t pay when I’m gone
I won’t rain
If your love boils down to none
When I’m gone
When I’m gone

I won’t care
Where your true love runs
As long as I am free
Until then I’ll stay this side of the sun
When I’m gone
When I’m gone

Which ever way your true love rolls
Away and far I’ll be
I’m going down to where them lucky souls
And other stars await for me

I won’t care
Which way the river runs
I won’t care when I’m gone
I won’t care ’bout
all the things you done
When I’m gone
When I’m gone
