    Run Like the River

    3:39

    One hopeful road
    That my Mamma showed to me
    From the moment I first standed
    I didn't know
    Back there and then she released me free
    From that patched up shackle down my Pa was handed

    She said Tyrone
    Go be the King you're meant to be
    Like a stone roll on your mission
    Hurry now son
    There are songs need to be sung
    And you're the one to which the heart it is releasin'

    Mother said run baby run
    Go ahead run baby run
    Mother said run baby run
    Run like the river

    As wheels do turn
    Is how I go you all sure should know
    As flames do burn I am ignited
    Towards the wind
    With squinted eyes I look ahead
    'Cause in the end they're all behind me long been ridin'

    Mother said run baby run
    Go ahead run baby run
    Mother said run baby run
    Run like the river
    Like the river

    Mother said run baby run
    Go ahead run baby run
    Mother said run baby run
    Run like the river
    Run like the river
    Run like the river
    Run like the river

    From My Arms

    3:01

    Had a dream
    That my world changed the scene
    I don't know what that means
    But I do know
    That the rain came down
    And the sun skipped town

    Everything that we shared
    Wasn't there
    All of my answered prayers
    Returned to questions
    And my solid ground
    Was nowhere to be found

    And so today I want you to say it
    I want you to play it on end
    Say that won't stray or slip away
    From my arms
    (Don't slip away baby, don't slip away baby)
    From my arms
    (Don't slip away baby, don't slip away baby)

    Usually I am the kind
    With the peace filled mind
    And rose-colored time
    No glass broken
    Beneath my feet
    Circle complete

    But the thought of
    Me walking my walk
    Without you they are talking
    To carry me over
    My travels
    Makes me unravel

    And so I need you to show me
    That I'm your one and only man
    Say that there's no chance you will dance
    From my arms
    (Don't dance away baby, don't dance away baby)
    From my arms, from my arms, from my arms, from my arms

    Baby, baby don't stray or slip away
    From my arms
    (Don't slip away baby, don't slip away baby)
    From my arms
    (Don't slip away baby, don't slip away baby)
    Had a dream
    That my world changed the scene
    I don't know what that means
    But I do know
    The rain came down

    Doin' What You Were Doin'

    4:02

    Alright now everybody
    Just get back to doin' what you were doin'
    Alright now everybody
    Just get back to doin' what you were doin'

    Why don't we allow ourselves
    To be the legends while we're living
    Where are all the hands we held (tell me)
    When life was humble and forgiving

    We gotta carry on
    Carry on
    Got to carry on

    Alright now everybody
    Just get back to doin'
    What you were doin' (You see what I mean)
    Alright now everybody
    Just get back to doin' what you were doin'

    Lay down your arms and alarms
    Lower your shoulders and be lovers
    The war that tore us apart
    Can't change The fact that we are all each other

    We gotta carry on
    Carry on
    Right back to the song

    Alright now everybody
    Just get back to doin'
    What you were doin' (You see what I mean)
    Alright now everybody
    Just get back to doin' what you were doin'

    We gotta carry on
    Carry on

    Alright now everybody
    Just get back to doin'
    What you were doin' (You see what I mean)
    Alright now everybody
    Just get back to doin' what you were doin'

    You see what I mean

    May the red sun
    Concede through the green
    Down into the blue waters
    For our sons and daughters

    You see what I mean

    Get back to doin'

    Angel City, California

    2:54

    I'm living down in Angel City, California
    Is where I found this soul I now call mine
    And I'm strutting up the streets that I was born 'ta
    I'm saying down in Angel City, I am I
    Y'all all hear me
    Down in Angel City, I am I

    So I was told
    Never roll to Hollywood
    "Hell no don't go"
    Is what my people said

    What they say ain't real
    You'll only be misunderstood
    Your road will be mislead

    And there are silver lakes and boulevards
    Sunsets and sidewalk stars

    Down in Angel City, California
    That's where I found this soul I now call mine
    And I'm strutting up the streets that I was born 'ta
    I'm saying down in Angel City, I am I
    Y'all all hear me
    Down in Angel City

    I am I I get high in it
    I fly on the ride of it
    Yeah Like night and day
    Is how it is from what they say
    What they put down's
    Come over me

    Every corner turns
    An old school lesson learned
    And a new age fantasy

    And there are crystal mountain canyons
    Nice view from where I'm standing

    Down in Angel City, California
    That's where I found this soul I now call mine
    And I'm strutting up the streets that I was born 'ta
    I'm saying down in Angel City, I am I
    Y'all all hear me
    Down in Angel City, I am I

    They say don't go
    But they don't know
    That I am I

    Hear me now
    Blow your speakers out
    I am I

    Down in Angel City

    Shows What You Know

    4:12

    You thought the sweet time was over
    Dead and gone
    You thought the sound of our laughter
    Had trickled on

    But our love's here to stay
    No it won’t slip away
    It don't know how to let go (oh)
    Shows what you know

    You cut me out of every picture
    You drew the dividing line
    You asked your friends never to mention
    Your name with mine

    But you love is relentless
    Your dam is defenseless
    You, you can't make still what's meant to flow (no)
    Shows what you know

    Did you truly think that you and I
    Had fallen from our crimson sky
    Down into a book of blue memories
    You thought the kiss on that bridge was our last
    You wrote our love epitaph
    While I prayed for our recovery
    Now onto the revelry

    Here we dance once again
    Face to face
    Lips on lips, hand in hand
    All pain erased

    I won't say that I told you
    I'll just have you and hold you
    Sweet embrace you in the afterglow (oh)
    Shows what you know
    You thought the sweet time was over

    Baby, baby, baby, baby
    Shows what you know
    Shows what you know
    Shows what you know
    Shows what you know

    If you gotta be wrong baby, now's the right time to be wrong baby
    If you gotta be wrong baby, now's the right time to be wrong baby

    My Heart Won't Fall Again----------------------
    Nevermore will I be the one who cries
    Nevermore will I be the one who crawls
    Nevermore will I be the one who dies
    From the knives that you're throwing

    Nevermore will I be the one who breaks
    I am done being the deaf and blind
    Nevermore will I make the same mistake
    The mistake of not knowing
    Where I'm going

    Well, I tripped and I fell
    Right under your spell
    Your eyes they lured me in
    I was hypnotized and mesmerized
    But I swear to you
    My heart won't fall again

    Nevermore will I be the one who waits
    No more am I your holding call
    Nevermore will I be the one who hates
    Hates himself for loving you

    Nevermore will I be the one who hopes
    On the day you finally come around
    Nevermore will I be the one who copes
    With the fire you're dragging me through
    I'm letting loose

    Well, I tripped and I fell
    Right under your spell
    Your eyes they lured me in
    I was hypnotized and mesmerized
    But I swear to you
    My heart won't fall again

    My heart won't fall again
    My heart done fallin'

    Well, I tripped and I fell
    Right under your spell
    Your eyes they lured me in
    I was hypnotized
    I was mesmerized
    But I swear to you, my heart won't fall again

    I swear to you, my heart won't fall again
    I swear to you, my heart won't fall again, baby
    I swear to you, my heart won't fall again

    I swear it
    I swear it

    I'm swearing
    No no more
    No no more, woah
    No no more
    No no more, woah

    I swear it
    I swear it

    I swear that
    My heart won't fall again

    Another Man's Words

    4:50

    Tell me again what it was that he told you
    Where was my hand in this red cry
    How did he say that I kissed your shoulder
    Never mind and besides did it ever occur to you
    Never mind and besides did it ever occur to you

    That the wrong that he said was done
    I could never do

    Tell me why would you believe
    Another man's words over mine
    Tell me why would you believe
    Another man's words over mine

    Wasn't it I who cradled your crying
    Where was he when the stars fell down
    Tell me where he when the sun stopped shining
    Never mind and besides did it ever cross those blinded eyes
    Never mind and besides did it ever cross those blinded eyes
    Never mind and besides did it ever cross those blinded eyes

    That he was pushing me out
    So that he could slip inside

    Tell me why would you believe
    Another man's words over mine
    Tell me why would you believe
    Another man's words over mine

    Tell me why would you believe
    Another man's words over mine
    Tell me why would you believe
    Another man's words over mine
    Over mine
    Tell me why
    Over mine

    Strike Your Light (ft. Kamilah Marshall)

    3:26

    I'm coming baby, from under the ground
    You've pulling me out of the hole I was sliding down
    Don't stop now baby, give me mind
    I've been waiting, and wanting, and wondering all my life

    I like the feeling
    I like the feeling
    I like the feeling

    I was waiting in the water, pushing stones uphill
    Never reaching my head, 'cause I couldn't find my way to my will
    I was caught in a spiderweb, every limb of my tired
    I was folded and blinded until you opened up my arms and my eyes

    I like the feeling
    I like the feeling
    I like the feeling

    Strike your light shining bright on me
    Strike your light shining bright on me
    Strike your light

    You give me reason (you give me reason)
    You give me rhyme (you give rhyme)
    That's why I'm struttin' on a high wire looking down in the sky
    I forgot what I was missing (forgot what's missing)
    Was it all in the grave (all in the grave)
    Couldn't see that tomorrow was calling me before day

    Strike your light on me (right on me)
    Strike your light on me (right on me)
    Strike your light on me (right on me)
    On me (right on me)
    I said one (right on me)
    I said two (right on me)
    I said three (right on me)

    I like the feeling
    I like the feeling
    I like the feeling
    I like it on me!
    Pour it all over me

    Before the Tear Drops

    3:25

    Before the tear drops
    And my world goes full-stop
    Love me don't love me not
    Tell your mind

    After this fury falls
    These words please do recall
    You're my every you're my all

    Let's rewind
    Rewind to a time we wrapped ourselves
    In each other
    Barely air to breathe
    Romance and slow dancing under the cover
    Look at me
    Lover, look at me

    Mine eye spy what I got
    And they're welling to the top
    So please before the tear drops Say you're still mine baby

    Rewind to a time we wrapped ourselves
    In each other
    Barely air to breathe baby
    Romance and slow dancing under the cover
    Look at me
    Lover, look at me

    Before the tear drops
    And my world goes full-stop baby won't ya
    Love me don't you love me not
    Say you're still mine baby

    Before the tear drops
    Before the tear drops
    Before the tear drops

    Let's rewind
    Hold the line
    Baby be kind
    Say you're still mine

    Before the tear drops

    Say you're mine

    If You Loved Me

    3:24

    I trembled and rocked
    In the room that held us together
    With eyes closed
    I unlocked all the love you turned with a key

    I guess I wanted to believe that
    My life was not a dream
    But now that you're gone
    And the page has turned on
    I'm face slapped with reality

    There's a hurt on my heart
    I've not known all my living
    What a blow to my soul
    From the coldness that you're giving
    And this pain
    Wouldn't share your name
    If you loved me

    I wish I had known
    That your love was unobtainable
    And I wish I had known that your word
    You didn't
    Stand by

    And it kills me that I could still be
    Wanting you tonight
    After all that I know and all the things
    That you've shown
    I am sure I can no more abide

    There's a hurt on my heart
    I've not known all my living
    What a blow to my soul
    From the coldness that you're giving
    And this pain
    Wouldn't bare your name
    If you loved me

    There's a hurt on my heart
    I've not known all my living
    What a blow to my soul
    From the coldness I would know it
    If you loved me
    If you loved me baby
    If you loved me

    The pain
    Wouldn't bare your name
    If you loved me

    Soul Serenity

    3:57

    Flipping my sign to "Be back in five"
    Walking away to come back alive
    I miss the easiness in me
    And I’m finding it hard to barely breathe

    I long to strum a simple song
    That tracks me back to days of gone
    When sisters and brothers knew
    That love was the thing to do

    Pining am I for some piece of time
    When the hands wind down and sit still
    Where all I know can unfold and recline
    Washed over my mind, there will

    I know there will be (I know there will be)
    Soul serenity (Soul serenity)
    I know there will be (I know there will be)
    Soul serenity (Soul serenity)

    With my eyes closed and face to the sun
    And my back shielding the storm that’s come
    With my ears covered, I listen in
    To these words the light is whispering

    "It’s time to turn the rigid wheel
    From what you say to how you feel
    Slow down and lay the brakes on the too fast
    Before this day becomes your last"

    Pining am I for some piece of time
    When the hands wind down and sit still
    Where all I know can unfold and recline
    Washed over my mind, there will

    I know there will be (I know there will be)
    Soul serenity (Soul serenity)

    Oh, I wanna feel it
    Oh, I wanna know it
    I wanna be healed by it
    I got to, got to own it

    Flipping my sign to "Be back in five"
    Walking away to come back alive
    My sisters and brothers listen in
    To these words my journey’s offering

    Pining am I for some piece of time
    When the hands wind down and sit still
    Where all I know can unfold and recline
    Washed over my mind, there will
    Washed over my mind, there will

    I know there will be (I know there will be)
    Soul serenity (Soul serenity)
    I know there will be (I know there will be)
    Soul serenity (Soul serenity)

    (I know there will be)
    (Soul serenity)
    I know there will be (I know there will be)
    I know there will be soul serenity
