Track Name: Be Joyful (January)
It was never easy in the morning
It was a struggle in the night
There were shadows in the dark
And I couldn't face light
The preacher said it over again and again
And my folks they said the same and I tried to fit in

To be joyful child it's a good life
Such a good life
Be joyful child it's a good life
Such a good life

So I ran in the morning and I ran in the night
Into the dark away from the light
I'm not saying that you lied
But it just wasn't true
'Cause it never worked for me
When it seemed to work for you

To be joyful child it's a good life
Such a good life
Be joyful child it's a good life
Such a good life

So it doesn't matter if its morning
It doesn't matter if its night
I don't care if it's dark
I don't care if it's light
Every day's the same all the days are gray
And those words, those words they never go away

To be joyful child it's a good life
Such a good life
Be joyful child it's a good life
Such a good life
Be joyful child it's a good life
Such a good life
Be joyful child it's a good life
Such a good life
Track Name: Tyler (February)
Tyler when you left for the Army
I figured they'd send you off to war
But either way it was a chance worth taking
Because things here are worse than they were before

Let freedom ring, like it did back then
Let freedom ring, let it ring again
Let freedom ring

I always thought if you'd get in trouble
You'd double down and fight them off
Like you did before when we were younger
It'd take more than an army to make you stop

Let freedom ring, like it did back then
Let freedom ring, let it ring again
Let freedom ring

And I saw your dad in the diner, he says your mother still stays inside
But all in all she is better, all she needs is more time

In July when we were last together
We smoked and drank and fished all night
Like the old days when we were younger
Back when the future seemed so bright

Let freedom ring, like it did back then
Let freedom ring, let it ring again
Let freedom ring
Let freedom ring, like it did back then
Let freedom ring, let it ring again
Let freedom ring
Let freedom ring, like it did back then
Let freedom ring, let it ring again
Let freedom ring
Track Name: Tel Aviv (March)
Waves of anger took me down
And I gave into fear
Now you lift me up onto higher ground
I act like you aren't here

Well I danced on a beach in Tel Aviv
Far from Jerusalem
Surrounded by the enemy with you
Well I danced on a street in Tel Aviv
Far from Jerusalem
Surrounded by the enemy with you

Hallelujah I've had enough
But now I've got a choice
About the time that I lost my soul
Is when I found my voice

Well I danced on a beach in Tel Aviv
Far from Jerusalem
Surrounded by the enemy with you
Well I danced on a street in Tel Aviv
Far from Jerusalem
Surrounded by the enemy with you

Mold me make me take me
Far from the places I know
Deliver me from evil
Let your spirit show

Well I danced on a beach in Tel Aviv
Far from Jerusalem
Surrounded by the enemy with you
Well I danced on a street in Tel Aviv
Far from Jerusalem
Surrounded by the enemy with you

Well I danced on a beach in Tel Aviv
Far from Jerusalem
Surrounded by the enemy with you
Well I danced on a street in Tel Aviv
Far from Jerusalem
Surrounded by the enemy with you
