Track Name: The Sky Is Falling
THE SKY IS FALLING
Written by Cyndi Craven.
© 1989 Cyndi Craven (BMI), Salzillo Songs, Inc. (BMI)

Sometimes I feel like the sky is falling, like my
Mind is walling up and my
Heart is calling me away from here

And sometimes I feel like the wind is blowing away with
All my knowing, it leaves my feelings showing
You can see my fear

But I hang around just to see which way it goes
If you ask me why, then I’ll tell you I don’t know
And I’ll turn in the wind
Singing blow, wind, blow, wind…blow…blow, wind, blow

Break

Sometimes I feel like the sky is falling but you know I
I just keep walking while I’m
Picking up pieces of this broken blue

And sometimes I feel like the wind is screaming away with
All my dreams and things aren’t what they’re seeming
But at least it’s new

And I hang around just to see which way it goes
If you ask me why, then I’ll tell you I don’t know
And I’ll turn in the wind
Singing blow, wind, blow, wind…blow…blow, wind, blow
I turn in the wind… singing blow, wind, blow.
Track Name: What's It Gonna Take
WHAT’S IT GONNA TAKE
Written by Cyndi Craven and Tom Wolf
Copyright 1989 Cyndi Craven (BMI), Tom Wolf (BMI)

What’s it gonna take to get you outta my system
What’s it gonna take to get you outta my mind
What’ve I gotta do to get my life back to normal, baby
Whatever it is, it’s something that I can’t find

How come the ones who really love you
Are never the ones who turn your heart around
Every once in awhile you’ll call
Just to see how far I’ll fall
Then you disappear when I’m on the way down

You don’t want me know, maybe you will later
But I’m a fool to think you’ll ever change your mind
‘Cause I know inside of myself
You’re gonna take it somewhere else
I mean, what’s just one more broken heart behind you

Break

You don’t want me now, maybe you will later
But I’m a fool to think you’ll ever change your mind
‘Cause I know inside of myself
You’re gonna take it somewhere else
I mean, what’s just one more broken heart behind you

What’s it gonna take to get you outta my system
What’s it gonna take to get you outta my mind
What’ve I gotta do to get my life back to normal, baby
Whatever it is, it’s something that I can’t find (x3)
Track Name: Schizophrenics
SCHIZOPHRENICS
Written by Tom Wolf.
© 1989 Tom Wolf (BMI)

Schizophrenics are a whole lot of fun.
There’s one in every crowd and a crowd in every one.
I’m schizophrenic but I’ll always have each other

Oh, paging Dr. Jekyll. It’s a very strange case.
Mr, Hyde would like to take your place
He’s schizophrenic. Baby, How’s about you?

Life is too complex, you see
To face with just one personality
Why just two? Why not three?
W gotta be me. Oh, and so do we

I’m schizophrenic. Out in the twilight zone.
The lights are all on and everybody’s home
I’m schizophrenic but I’ll always have each other.
Oh, I’m schizophrenic. Baby, How’s about you
“I need a doctor…I need two doctors.”
Track Name: Forever Man
FOREVER MAN
Written by Tom Wolf.
© 1989 Tom Wolf (BMI)

You’re waiting on a forever man.
He’s gonna give you all that love you dream about.
Tired of these one night stands. Think you’d rather do without.

Be careful what you wish for, baby
Wishes have a way of coming true, they do.
And if you do find your forever man
I hope forever never turns on you.
I hope forever never turns on you.

But you could hold me for a little while.
Make love to me real slow.
No, I know I ain’t your forever man
And you’re gonna have to let me go

Now, a lot of dreams you have get shot down
just when it seems love is in sight, that’s right.
Well you know I ain’t your forever man.
I can’t even stay the night.
Yeah, you know I ain’t your forever man.
I can’t even stay the night.

But you could hold me for a little while.
Make love to me real slow
No, I ain’t your forever man
And you’re gonna have to let me go.

Hold me. Hold me for a little while.
Make love to me real slow.
But know I ain’t your forever man
And you’re gonna have to let me go.
Track Name: Only Lonely Person Here
ONLY LONELY PERSON HERE
Written by Judith Barnett and Tom Wolf
© 1989 Judith Barnett (BMI), Tom Wolf (BMI)

Well, the radio plays happy songs in this party town.
You won’t find a sad face anywhere around,
I feel just like a misfit in this cheerful atmosphere.
I guess that I’m the only lonely person here.

Everybody’s blue moon finally turned to gold.
Everybody seems to have someone to hold.
No one’s in the honky tonks crying in their beer.
I guess that I’m the only lonely person here.

Heartaches have gone out of style and no one cheats or lies.
My friends have all the happiness that their credit cards can buy.
And everybody’s ship came in and it’s tied up at the pier.
Guess that I’m the only lonely person here.

Heartaches have gone out of style and no one cheats or lies.
My friends have all the happiness that their credit cards can buy.
and everybody’s ship came in and it’s tied up at the pier.
I guess that I’m the only lonely person here.
Oh, I guess that I’m the only lonely person here.
Track Name: Beyond The Moon
BEYOND THE MOON
Written by Cyndi Craven.
Copyright © 1989 Cyndi Craven (BMI), Salzillo Songs, Inc. (BMI)

See that moon up in the sky
The same sad face was watching me
When I said goodbye to you
I must have hurt his feelings
‘Cause he went away
But he came back so bright
The other night
As if he planned to stay

And I guess I that I just had to get
Beyond the moon
The one that follows me around for days
The one I cannot seem to lose
And it will not last forever
Like it seems that it might do
It goes away
And leaves a space
To pour my heart into
Mmmm…….

If there’s a light left in my heart
I’m gonna break it up
And scatter it to the wind
So when this night is over
I will see the light again
Coming up over the hill
To sit upon my windowsill

And I guess I that I just have to get
Beyond the moon
The one that follows me around for days
The one I cannot seem to lose
And it will not last forever
Like it seems that it might do
It goes away
And leaves a space
To pour my heart into
Mmmm…….

Moon glow
This is a moon show
But what the hell does the
Moon know?

Things have finally settled down
My heart stays right in place
Now when you come around
And if I lose myself
I’m not afraid I won’t be found
This jewel I’m standing on
Keeps turning ‘round and around

And I guess that I just had to get
Beyond the moon
The one that followed me for days
The one I could not seem to lose
And it did not last forever
Like I thought that it might do
It went away
And left a space
To pour my heart into
It went away
And left a space
To pour my heart into
Mmmm…….
Track Name: Train Go By
TRAIN GO BY
Written by Cyndi Craven.
Copyright © 1989 Cyndi Craven (BMI), Salzillo Songs, Inc. (BMI)

Train go by
Me oh my
It’s enough to make me cry
Train go by
But I’ll be following your tracks to the river
By and by

I’ve been here
I’ve been there
Just when I could
Pay the fair
Train go by
Said I’ll be following your tracks to the river
By and by

I’ve been up
I’ve been down
I think I’ll have another round
Train go by
Said I’ll be following you
Down, down

Break

Train go by
Me oh my
It’s enough to make me cry
Hmmmmmmm, yeah… ooo, mmmm….
Track Name: Heat Lightning
HEAT LIGHTNING
Written by Tom Wolf.
© 1989 Tom Wolf (BMI)

Heat lightning flashing in the sky.
Heat lightning flashing in my eyes
I ain’t got no money but I’ve got a song to sing
And I got heat lightning. I got everything.
I got everything I need.

And I got heat lightning on a warm summer night.
Heat lightning, Outshines these city lights.
And it doesn’t matter where you go, a song will take you home
Oh, heat lightning. Whichever way the wind does blow.
That’s where I know I will go, oh, Whoa, I will go

So Mr. heat lightning. I guess I’m singing you this song.
Heat lightning, ‘cause I know it won’t be long
’til that old highway takes me to the place that I belong
Heat lightning. Won’t you light my way back home.
Light my way back home.
Heat lightning. Won’t you light my way back home.
Track Name: Heartache In Disguise
HEARTACHE IN DISGUISE
Written by Judith Barnett, Tom Wolf, Cyndi Craven.
© 1989 Judith Barnett (BMI), Tom Wolf (BMI), Cyndi Craven (BMI)

I see the way you look at him
I’ve looked at him that way
He’s gonna be the reason
You’ll be hurting soon someday
‘Cause what you’re seeing isn’t real
It’s the mask he hides behind
He may look like what you want
But he’s a heartache in disguise

CHORUS
He’ll tell every sweet lie
You ever wanted to hear
He’ll do anything it takes
To make you think he cares
Then he’ll walk away and leave you
With a hurt that will not die
He may look like love to you
But he’s a heartache in disguise

If he holds you in his arms
You may never be the same
‘Cause once you taste his wildness
All other men seem tame
He’s got magic in his touch
When you look into his eyes
You may think you’ve found your happiness
But he’s a heartache in disguise

CHORUS +
He may look like love to you
But he’s a heartache in disguise
Track Name: Standing In Line
STANDING IN LINE
Written by Cyndi Craven and Tom Wolf
© 1989 Cyndi Craven (BMI), Tom Wolf (BMI)

CHORUS
If she don’t want you I do
If she don’t want you I do, I do
If she don’t want you, baby, I do
I’m standing in line for your love

I woke up next to a feeling
I don’t remember taking to bed
Must’ve snuck into my window last night
And crawled inside of my head
I can’t get over the way you move
You know I try to leave you alone
So I get in my car and I drive away
Just wishing you’d follow me home

CHORUS

BREAK

Why’ve you gotta look so good
Why you gotta be so bad
You always got everything you want
Never wanted anything you had
They say you love somebody else
That you just came in here to dance
But I want you to know that I’m standing in line
If you ever wanna give me a chance

CHORUS x 2 +
Standing in line (yeah I’m standing in line)
Standing in line (whoa, I’m standing in line) for your love
Track Name: Let The Rain Fall Down
LET THE RAIN FALL DOWN
Written by Tom Wolf
© 1989 Tom Wolf (BMI)

Let the rain fall down
It’s falling all over town
Everybody believes in something
Me, I believe I’ll have another drink
And let the rain fall down

Let the fog roll in
Just every now and then
You get what you need
Fire number one torpedo
And let the fog roll in

Yes, it’s time to have some fun
I’ll pay you later for the damage done
We’ll chase the moon with an ice-cold beer
And a memory like you won’t find me here

You let your cold wind blow
You told everyone you know
Told ‘em that I cried, told ‘em that I had no pride
You let your cold wind blow

Yeah, we really had some fun
But I paid later for the damage done
We chased the moon with an ice-cold beer
And now a memory like you has found me here

So let the rain fall down
It’s falling all over town
Everybody believes in something
Me, I believe I’ll have another drink
And let the rain fall down
And let the rain fall … down....
Track Name: I've Been Away Too Long
I’VE BEEN AWAY TOO LONG
Written by Cyndi Craven
Copyright 1989 by Cyndi Craven (BMI)

What can I say to you
What can I ever do
I’ve been away too long

What can I make you feel
Nothing seems quite as real
I’ve been away too long
I’ve been away too long

Once this was so easy to do
When you needed me
And I needed you
There was no need to ask
‘Cause both of us knew

Now when I look
Into your eyes
I don’t know what’s there
I can’t see inside
You’ve nothing to say
And that’s such a surprise
And now…

What can I say to you
What can I ever do
I’ve been away too long

What is it that you see
Now when you look at me
I’ve been away too long
I’ve been away too long
Track Name: Shots Of Our Vacation
SHOTS OF OUR VACATION
Written by Tom Wolf
© 1989 Tom Wolf (BMI)

See those dots on the horizon, those were the flamingos.
Here’s some more over on this side. Wish I had a telephoto.
These were the slave houses. See how tiny they are.
Here’s a shot of Katy standing over by the car.

Won’t you please have a seat. Would you like a libation?
We’ve prepared such a treat. Got some shots of our vacation.

And here we are down by the ocean just before the storm set in.
Open Jeep for locomotion. We were soaked right through the skin.

Won’t you please have a seat. Would you like a libation?
Oh yeah.
We’ve prepared such a treat. Got some shots of our vacation.

And out beyond the shoreline, cold world is revolving.
I think I’ve made up my mind not to be returning.

As the sun sinks low on our island paradise
We raise our cameras once again. Everybody wave goodbye.

Won’t you please have a seat? Would you like a libation.
Oh yeah.
We’ve prepared such a treat. Got some shots of our vacation.
Got some shots of our vacation.
Track Name: Sing Your Own Blues
SING YOUR OWN BLUES
Written by Cyndi Craven
Copyright 2016 by Cyndi Craven (BMI)

I can’t help it if it’s raining outside
And I can’t help it if the birds are getting wet
I can’t help it if you’re hungry this morning
And I haven’t fixed your breakfast yet

Now you can make your own supper
And you can learn to tie your own shoes
Cause I won’t be singin’ ‘round here no more
I’m gonna let you sing your own blues

Now sometimes I don’t know what I’m a’ getting into
And sometimes I don’t look before I leap
I was looking for a lover, not a child… dear
All you want is just someone to sing you to sleep

Now you can make your own supper
And you can learn to tie your own shoes
Cause I won’t be singin’ ‘round here no more
I’m gonna let you sing your own blues

Break

Now the rain is a’ rollin’ off the rooftops
And the clouds are breakin’ up and movin’ on
If my car will start, I’ll escort the sunshine
I ain’t gonna come back… ‘til you get full grown… yeah….

Now you can make your own supper
And you can learn to tie your own shoes
Cause I won’t be singin’ ‘round here no more
I’m gonna let you sing your own blues (X3)
Track Name: After All This Time
AFTER ALL THIS TIME
Written by Cyndi Craven & Tom Wolf
Copyright 2015 by Cyndi Craven (BMI) & Tom Wolf (BMI)

The tracks are less than half a mile away
Crossing Main at Howard Road
Trains go rumbling through the town all day
Guess they have somewhere to go

But in the quiet of the evening sky
The moon is rising from the ground
I’m just listening for a train gone by
And that old familiar sound

CHORUS
Then/Now I close my eyes and there it goes
How I love to hear that whistle blow
It’s become the soundtrack of my soul
As I move on down the line
It’s a line that’s someday bound to end
But / And I’ll remember you my dear old friend
There’s a bond on which you can depend
After all this time

BREAK

And now whenever that old train comes round
It makes me think of me and you
And all the things that depot saw go down
And all the people that we knew

Now that old place we loved is standing still
Quiet as the midnight sky
And love and memory will somehow fill
Things we thought would pass us by

CHORUS + repeat from “That’s a bond….”
