Track Name: Last Night
You've got a good head for thinking aloud
And it's all crowned by a pretty mouth
You could tell a lie or two and I let you

But I saw you last night
Your car's out of the drive
I saw you last night

You've got a most distinctive walk
And a weird turn of phrase in your talk
I could pick you out of a crowd and I did so...

Come on if you're man enough
You're not the only one
Not getting satisfaction here
You could not take the easy route
And tell me all those things I know we rightly fear

But I saw your last night
Your arms caught in a lie
I saw you last night
Track Name: 19 Rio
He’s got the beat, he’s got the vibe
He’s got the eyes, he’s got the ass and the thighs
He loves his life, he lives it right
He’s always on one of them natural highs

He’s never scared or unprepared
He’s always keeping his love flowing
And he may be the one provided I don’t shun him
For being so young

Coz he’s only…19

Never one to be outdone
He’s always got a nicer shirt than I have on
And he looks so pretty in his vintage 1950’s Hermès chiffon
I’ve got my sequence dress on and we cut a striking blow
Anyone within our immediate vicinity can’t keep up with this show

But he’s only…19

And he can’t even get into clubs at his age
And he can’t buy a drink in the United States
But he’s not going to wait until his 21st
To put himself out into the world

And he’s only…19
Track Name: Faith+1 (Sunday)
I met him on a Saturday
With his southern swagger and sway
Could of sworn he was the only one
On this busy street corner
And then he nearly turned away

I caught his eye just then
Smiled like we had always been friends
And said “Hey, I’m new in town
And looking to party down
Could you, kindly, recommend a place around?”

And he said “Hey, pretty stranger
I’ll show you my drinking hole later
It’s two blocks on the right
A little run down but
You’d be crazy not to drink at the Texas Ranger.”

And I said “Cool.”
But I didn’t really mean it
Coz I knew I’d be leaving soon
So I pushed a little harder
And I asked a little cuter about tonight

And he said “No baby, I would you see
But I’m a good boy and that’s important to me”

And I don’t go out on Saturday Night
Because I got church on Sunday…

Well I had never heard this before
And I’ve been rejected avoided and more
But as far as excuses go
Now this one’s original
My competition’s the Lord

I made my excuses to leave
Knew that he wouldn’t want a girl like me
He’s so busy with prayer and praise
Could hardly believe that
He insisted I stay

And he said “Hey, pretty stranger
Let me be the one who saves ya
I’ll take you along with me at 10am, it’s free
Has anyone ever taught you how to pray?”

And I said “cool”
But I really didn’t mean it
Coz I knew I’d be leaving soon
So I thanked him for directions
And went on my way

And Sunday I’ll probably be hungover
But I’m quite happy with the path I’ve chosen

I don’t go out on Saturday night
Because I got church on Sunday…
Track Name: Bangra Jerry
Let’s call him Jerry
And Jerry fell in love with me
It’s most unwelcomed
He fell in love with
My shoulders, my toes, my cheekbones
My nose, my eyes, my voice, my lips, my toys

I don’t want to know if you were 20 years younger
I’d be the kind of girl that you’d go for

My legs, my frame, my fingers, my game
My chest, my height, my knuckles, my fight
My love, my thighs, my fists, my lies

I don’t want to know if you were 20 years younger
I’d be the kind of girl that you’d go for
Track Name: Walked to the Water
Walked to the water
Will you hold my hair back
Keep me from looking in
And drowning in the facts

Walked to the water
Will you hold my hands behind my back
Stop me from jumping in
And never looking back

Walked to the water
There’s no room for me here
This city creature
Pretending to like the country air

Keep it to yourself

Your people, do they know I’m here?
I was about to jump in a ruffian
A vulgarian out in the forest here

And I insult you to your face
I look down on you for
Not being more digital
But now I’m the one out of place

Keep it to yourself
Track Name: Easy
He’s got the eyes of a believer
The wisdom of a seer
The sadness of a tear
And I love him

There’s a faint voice that follows him
A love that simply devours him
A dream that wakes him up every morning

And I don’t know why he does what he does
And I don’t know why he wants to do
He’s just here and I’m here together.

It could be so easy
It could be so lovely to
It could be easy
If you everything I wanted you to

It could be easy
It could be so lovely to
If you only did everything I wanted you to

But he’s got them dreams

If only I could keep you
In a box under my bed
I would hide you from the things
That will corrupt your little head
I would take away the hassle
And the daily toils of life
Just to keep you in perfect condition
Every single night

It could be so easy
It could be so lovely to
It could be easy
If you did everything I wanted you to

It could be easy
It could be so lovely to
If you only did everything I wanted you to

But he’s got them dreams
