Track Name: Snow, I Never Thought I'd Miss You
SNow, I
Track Name: Don't Wait Away Your Love
Embrace the rain of the sun again, as it shine outside your door
Don’t spend you days awaiting for the thunder and the storms
The fear that hides inside your mind is weak frail and alone
Don’t make the mistake of missing out on the love you may never have known

Don’t wait away our love
Don’t wait away our love
Don’t wait away our love

The truth is what you see and feel and you’re gonna have to believe
That the days are nothing but the past and waves left to the sea
A man cannot be judge upon what he used to be
So open the cage of your heart and you will only be set free

Don’t wait away our love
Don’t wait away our love
Don’t wait away our love

You got to find your own way home

Don’t wait away our love
Don’t wait away our love
Don’t wait away our love
Track Name: Coal Mine Mountain
Take me to the Coal Mine Mountain
And set free of my soul
Where I can still see the night sky
Where the stars still glow

Rustling leaves under my feet
And a wind so raw
You can hear the coyote call
Through the trees grown tall

You can cast me out
Into the ocean deep and blue,
Where the fisherman still roam
through the waves strong and true

The fog sits on the water
So heavy so slow
And the fishing boats appear
Like the ghosts of years ago

I need the mountain air
To medicate my worried mind
Free the ghost of yesterday
And find the peace I can’t find

So take me to the Coal Mine Mountain
And set free of my soul
Where I can still see the night sky
Where the stars still glow
Track Name: Christina
As I sit here and watch the snow fall against my window
It’s hard for me to understand that you’re still half the world away
I tell myself that that ain’t far and I drink myself to sleep
I dream about us dancing in the living room do you even remember those days?

Couldn’t figure out what I did wrong
You won’t admit you see another boy but I can see it in your smile
In those pictures that you send to me that I hold so close to my heart
And if you ever needed or wanted me well you know I’d walk ever damn mile

Christina, hell I don’t need you
Still when the night birds sing
Well I still miss yah
Christina, hell I don’t need you
Still when the night birds sing
I’d be lying y to you if I told you that I didn’t miss you



If you’d be so kind to answer the thoughts in mind
When you look into eyes do you see staring back at you
Cause when I walk these cold dirty streets at night
Well I see you in every face that I look and I wondered if you felt the same way

Christina, hell I don’t need you
Still when the night birds sing
Well I still miss yah
Christina, hell I don’t need you
Still when the night birds sing
I’d be lying y to you if I told you that I didn’t miss you
Track Name: As Long As I Have You, I'm Doing Fine
I got a lady that she says she love me
I know it’s true ‘cause I ain’t go t no money
Loads me up with kisses of honey
Even laughs at my joke when they ain’t funny
And as long as I have you I’m doing just fine

I’ve never been down this road before
Every night I just wanna knock on her door
Tell her what it is that I came here for
Dance the whole night on the living room floor
And as long as I have you I’m doing just fine

I got a lady that wants to hold me closest
Lucky to be the one she choses
She would rather anything other than roses
A chiense doll or the book of moses
And as long as I have you I’m doing just fine

She’ll get quiet when she starts feeling sad
Even more silent if she get mad
So you try your best to be good not bad
But it doesn’t take a lot to keep her glad
And as long as I have you I’m doing fine

She paints pictures like you never seen
You got to take her to places where she’s never been
Enjoys Spain but not the cuisine
Uncooked hamburger and make her turn green
But as long as I have you well I’m doing fine

She has the love I’ve been looking for
It’s not the kind that you can buy at the store
But if I could I’d buy 5 more
Or enough till I’m poor
But as long as I have you well I’m doing fine

I’d take her out to every broadway show
Water her garden till starts to grow
Hold her close when it starts to snow
If I could I’d never let go
And as long as I have you well I’m dong fine
Track Name: Cold Wind In The Morning
Cold wind in the morning
Cold love in the evening
What I thought
What I believe
What I thought
Is not what I see
