about

Some of these songs were written in Ohio, and some in Europe. Some were written in bad times -- through sickness, joblessness, and sleepless nights, and others were written in the good times -- health, new life, and friendships. All of these songs though, in one way or another, are somehow about love.

-- Daniel Dye

Track Name: Can't Stop This Love
Darling we've been picking up the pieces for years now
And even so we've only scratched the surface of our tears now
But if the future is anything like the past we'll be facing fears now
But you can't stop this love
You can’t stop this love, oh stop this love!

And I still don’t have a dime or a nickel to my name now
But taking this in stride without you wouldn’t be the same somehow
And I’d be lying if a I claimed that we never had to stoke the flames now
But you can’t stop this love!
You can’t stop this love, oh stop this love!

And those storm clouds have come in heavy about every day now
But my mama told me ‘son you know it might be this way now
And splitting and splintering, that don’t ever pay now’
And you can’t stop this love!
You can’t stop this love, oh stop this love!
Track Name: Lord Have Mercy
Maybe this should come as no surprise but the world it slaps you with its lies
And you can’t go back to blinded eyes ‘cause there’s a price to pay
Now you can’t sleep when your head pounds and you can’t get up when you’re falling down
And you cannot walk on shaky ground but you must be on your way

And all the people cry
Lord have mercy, lord have mercy, lord have mercy
We’ve got to find some sweet release
Heaven help us, heaven help us, heaven help us
We’re falling down upon our knees

Now you go to find solace in the house of God, but all you find is your soul rots
You don’t know what you are or what you’re not, but they are not like you
Yet there must be wrong and must be right, but there’s evil in the sweetest light
And goodness in the blackest night and you don’t know what to do

And all the people cry
Lord have mercy, lord have mercy, lord have mercy
We’ve got to find some sweet release
Heaven help us, heaven help us, heaven help us
We’re falling down upon our knees

So is it better or is it worse that you aren’t blessed and you aren’t cursed
And others yes they’ve been here first they’ve walked this weary land
And some they die before they age and others clinch their fists in rage
And some are freed from this cage and you cannot understand

And all the people cry
Lord have mercy, lord have mercy, lord have mercy
We’ve got to find some sweet release
Heaven help us, heaven help us, heaven help us
We’re falling down upon our knees
Track Name: Blinded Again
Blinded again by the power of men, ignoring all evil and laughing off sin
Blinded again by the pull of this world Jesus come save my soul
Save my soul, save my soul, Jesus come save my soul
Blinded again by the pull of this world
Jesus come save my soul

Blinded again by the pulse of my skin, shining outside but dark within
Blinded again by the will of my flesh, Jesus come save my soul
Save my soul, save my soul, Jesus come save my soul
Blinded again by the will of my flesh
Jesus come save my soul

Blinded again by that heavenly grin, out to destroy and waiting to win
Blinded again by that angel of light, Jesus come save my soul
Save my soul, save my soul, Jesus come save my soul
Blinded again by that angel of light
Jesus come save my soul
Track Name: Eliza's Song
Eliza the heaviness has set in, you and I will be together to the end
When I see those questions in your eyes, I want to hold you away from dark surprise
And when those black days get me down, you don’t seem to mind when I’m around
And when I see that sunshine on your face, for the moment you and I have found our place

And the world outside is moving fast, but for us it’s moving slow
And the time around is flying past but right now we wouldn’t know

They say your defined by the company you keep, maybe that’s why I’m at peace when I watch you sleep
Tomorrow’s shadows try and creep into the night, but for now all is still and all is right

And the world outside is moving fast, but for us it’s moving slow
And the time around is flying past but right now we wouldn’t know

Someday you’ll be the one who’s strong, and I’ll remark how years have come and gone
And when those dark days get me down, I’ll be waiting for the time you come around

And the world outside is moving fast, but for us it’s moving slow
And the time around is flying past but right now we wouldn’t know
Track Name: Luann
Another Sunday morning and the sky’s still gray
And everywhere I turn I see you're still away
That church bell rings, calling us home
And I'm going, but going nowhere when I’m going alone

Luann can't you understand I would have loved you 'til the Winter came on
Luann can't you understand I would have loved you ‘til they were singing our song

The preacher shouts and his cries roll out
But I've forgotten what he talks about
‘cause this pew's empty except for me
Sitting where we used to be

Luann can't you understand I would have loved you 'til the Winter came on
Luann can't you understand I would have loved you ‘til they were singing our song

You told me once you didn’t know what you had
And I’m not to blame if things go bad
They’ll come and go like they did before
And when they're done they'll show you to the door


Luann can't you understand I would have loved you 'til the Winter came on
Luann can't you understand I would have loved you ‘til they were singing our song
Track Name: Hard Cider
Darling they may say we live in squalor they may think we're doin' bad
But if we had a thousand dollars it wouldn't change the love you know we have dear

And there've been times that I've had money and you've had days of having fun
But when we didn't have each other we didn't care for either one dear

And when the sun beats down we drink our cider we drink it hard, we drink it cold
And when the storms move in we get real close there's someone there to love and hold dear

A man once said"love is where it's at" and it's the only thing worth being heard
Well love is all we've got love it is the final word dear

So when you lay me in my grave just know I died a happy man There was someone with me to the end someone who could understand dear
Track Name: Before I'm Gone
Harrison sang his guitar weeps and Denver said it was an old, old friend
And Marley brought us Jamaican sun, and we hear their voices again and again

Do they know they make us cry, do they know they make us high?
Do know they bring us the sun? Now they are gone, now they are gone

A fat man and his ukulele stood out like a shining light
Always helping an island of people make it through those lonely nights

Does he know he makes us cry, does he know he makes us high?
Does he know he brings us the sun, now he is gone, now he is gone

Now I know deep inside it doesn’t matter whether anyone knows my name
But knowing this doesn’t keep me from dreaming and I can say without shame

That I’d love to make them cry, I'd love to make you high
I'd love to bring you the sun, before I'm gone
Track Name: Those Devils
Those devils are comin’ with the wind
Those devils are comin' with the wind
They’ve come to plunder, come to sin
Those devils are comin' with the wind

You women go underground
You women go underground
And pull that trigger if you are found
You women go underground

I may be going down but I’m taking more
I may be going down but I’m taking more
Just pray you're not the first to come through my door
I may be going down but I’m taking more

So you devils come in after me
You devils come in after me
Where you’ll meet your destiny
You devils come in after me

When that dirge rolls across the land
When that dirge rolls across the land
At least they’ll sing that I left a man
When that dirge rolls across the land
Track Name: Empty Without Her
The garden’s full of weeds and the porch is full of leaves
And the grass is now a field
Oh the coffee it grows cold and lights are never on
And music is an echo from the past

Oh I guess I have a home
But if you come you’ll be alone
You're gonna find it's empty without her

And in an upstairs’ room the TV’s never off
It’s voice pierces the gloom
In the glow of its light there’s a shadow of a man
A man that’s now a memory

Oh I guess I have a home
But if you come you’ll be alone
You're gonna find it's empty without her

He’s a memory of the past of a time so long ago
Of a time that never really was
And if you wonder why she left then you will never know
Because some things are better left unsaid

Oh I guess I have a home
But if you come you’ll be alone
You're gonna find it's empty without her
Track Name: To California
Mama, mama, don’t be troubled, mama you can ease your mind
I’m heading west to California, I’m gonna make it this last time

Mister, mister all I’m asking is for a little hitching on this hike
I’m heading west to California eating dust on this turnpike

Preacher, preacher you can trust me, I’m just hungry, but I ain’t bad
I’m heading west to California to restore all the faith I had

Sheriff, sheriff, don’t you hate now, I’m only gonna stay the night
I’m heading west to California and I’ll be gone by morning’s light

Jailer, jailer, I ain’t shouting, just wish y’all would let me be
I’m heading west to California where you’ll never hear a thing from me

Jesus, Jesus please forgive me, you know I’ve been here before
I’m heading west to California just give me this; I won’t ask for more
Just give me this, I won’t ask for more
