Track Name: Bayou Wind
BAYOU WIND

I'm hopin' for the rain
To trickle down again
All over my skin
In the bayou wind

American Can
The Spanish moss in hand
And I'm on Esplanade
In a little park on Mystery Street in the shade

Seashells and Mardi Gras beads
In the sidewalk with the seeds
That fall down from the trees
And roll in the cracks while I'm on my knees

Don't need no umbrella
No guitar neither
I'm just fine
Enjoying the time

Ooh nah nah, hey mamma, mmm
Ooh nah nah, hey mamma, ooh

'Cuz this is home to me
Here in the Crescent City
Even in poverty and all the rest
You'll find humanity at it's best

In comes the second line
From Claiborne and Orleans
All the way down to Rampart Street
Toward the river with all your dreams

There's the Faubourg Marigny
Frenchman Street a destiny
Everybody's somebody and I'm home

Ooh nah nah, hey mamma, mmm
Ooh nah nah, hey mamma, ooh
Track Name: Iris Of Hollywood
IRIS OF HOLLYWOOD

Last we spoke, we were having cheers
down at Poubelle right after New Year's

Your eyes filled up with candlelight and a look that understands

You were talking like a pastor would,
(and) dancing with your hands

I had no idea you could slip away so fast, I'd help if I could

I'm here, hoping you'll make it back to The Iris Of Hollywood


Iris, Iris, Iris Of Hollywood


Out here under the magnolia tree for hours,
Out with the trash and the night blooming flowers

I'm feeling like I'm still living in the south
as these notes of wine sing out my mouth

You were passed out, your door open a crack
Now I'm here, hoping you'll make it back

I didn't pass by, I didn't know I should,
(But) I'm still here in The Iris Of Hollywood


Iris, Iris, Iris Of Hollywood


It's a lonely, lonely town
It's the loneliest
It's the eye of the storm, it's the iris
It's the iris

Iris, Iris Of Hollywood

Iris, Iris Of Hollywood

Iris
Track Name: Matter Of Time
MATTER OF TIME


Where I'm going, there ain't no knowing, it's just a matter of time

Will I still see you, or will you be in the rear view, it's just a matter of time

Will I ever find my place in the wide open space, it's just a matter of time

In this lifetime of labor, can I cash in for a favor, 'cuz I'm runnin' out of time


I've lived slow and steady and now more than ever I'm ready, but I'm runnin' out of time

Am I losin' the look of youth
While keepin' faith in my truth
It's just a matter of time

Where I'm going, there ain't no knowing, it's just a matter of time
Where I'm going, there ain't no knowing, it's just a matter of time

It's just a matter of time
It's just a matter of time
Track Name: Tender Heart
TENDER HEART

You came at me, I told you it was confusing
Still, you pursued and I was open
Then i had both feet in and you were looking out
Why'd you take it this far if you didn't want to go the distance?

Your tender heart, I couldn't unwring it
Your tender heart, go out and sing it
'cuz everybody loves you, your tender heart
everybody loves you, your tender heart

You once told me you could be a powerful figure in my life
I think it was me helping you
But you boxed me in before you closed me out
How'd I end up here all muddled and broken?

My tender heart, I can't unwring it
tender heart, go out and sing it
'cuz everybody loves you, your tender heart
everybody loves you, your tender heart

everybody loves you, your tender heart
everybody loves you
Track Name: It's Something
IT'S SOMETHING

Bend me over, take what you want
Cover me up with aluminum siding
Tell me everything, tell me what you're selling Tin Man, I wanna know what you're finding


('cuz) It's not love, it's not love, it's not love, but it's something
It's not love, it's not love, it's not love, but it's better than nothing


I'll do things to you while I'm on my knees
I'll stay quiet 'cuz I aim to please
It's an open house, it's a house of cards This could all blow over, it wouldn't be too hard


('cuz) It's not love, it's not love, it's not love, but it's something
It's not love, it's not love, it's not love, but it's better than nothing


I think there's this part of me that's gone numb
Can't put a finger on it, not even my thumb
I'll just lay here and take it, take it as it comes
I may not be the smartest one but I'm definitely not dumb.


(and) It's not love, it's not love, it's not love, but it's something
It's not love, it's not love, it's not love, but it's better than nothing

Aah
Track Name: Way Back Home
WAY BACK HOME

I dreamed I saw a light
In the road shining bright
Showing me the way back home

Home, when the Lilac's blooming
Home, when the raspberrie's growing
Home, when the fireflies are in flight

Home, in the summertime
With the fan in the window on
And crickets making their sounds in the night

Slowly the garden stops calling
And the leaves from the trees start falling
And the air is crisp and cool on skin

It's time to carve faces
(And) put candles in their places
Looking out through the glass at the blowing wind

Soon the snow will cover
Like blankets of silence that hover
And icicles will be hanging from the roof

As the smoke rises up the chimney
And the music from the records comes to me
I'm home, I don't need any proof

I'm not ready to pack away my sweater
But surely the springtime's better
'Cuz everything is growing and it's new

I dreamed I saw a light
In the road shining bright
Showing me the way back home
The way back home
Track Name: Warrior
WARRIOR

I am a warrior
I'm coming with the light
Got a shield in my hand
and i'm holding the reigns tight
while i ride

I've left everything behind
'cause i believe in the victory
made the sacrifice
I'm not living this life for me
I just ride
ride

Riding with the wind
riding in the night
Riding everyday
riding for the light

It's so cold and dark out here on this battlefield of green
I've got nothing to show right now,
still, behind this armor lives a queen
and i ride
ride
And i ride
ride

Riding with the wind
riding in the night
Riding everyday
riding for the light
Track Name: It's A Man's World
IT'S A MAN'S WORLD
© James Brown (additional lyrics; Sarah Kramer)


This is a man's world
A man's world

...But it would be nothing without a woman or a girl

It's a man's world

They say that the men
The men they make a home

But today,
today the lumberjack ain't got no bone

Still, it's a man's world
A man's world

In this man's world...

Blowing up countries
Raping the land
Take all they want
Using someone else's hands
It's a man's world

And it would be nothin'
Without a woman or a girl


Lost in the wilderness
Lost in the bitterness
Lost in the wilderness
In this man's world

Lost in the wilderness
Lost in the bitterness
Lost
Lost in the wilderness
Lost in the bitterness

Mmm
