Lovely Lady 04:24
(Verse 1) They were talkin about my lady Mesmerized by the way that she moves They say, “but that girl she don’t go nowhere without her back pocket full of blues.” She knows sometimes these times are hard They’re harder than a stone She says, “I’m just gonna go on and take what is mine until I can find a home.” (Chorus) Lovely, oh lovely lady won’t you stay with me tonight? When everything I’m doing feels like it's so wrong, you make me feel alright. (Verse 2) She spends sleepless days and nights wishing that she could feel warmth She says, “Every time I find a little shelter, in moves the next winter storm. It seems like an endless charade of broken hearts, salted wounds and unfulfilled dreams– I’m silenced by a stream of bitter tear drops; Why can’t things ever be more than they seem?” (Verse 3) So I say–– I even pray – that she finds some rest within her soul Good times they come and then they go, as the Lord watches it all with open arms.

It's Alright 05:04
(Verse 1) Yeah I was lost, somehow blown off course Far from home without a guiding star But still it’s alright I was broke down, so damn confused Painter of landscapes without a view But still it’s alright Then in came the rain, night swallowed the day Noah’s Ark wouldn’t have helped a thing But still it’s alright Then out came the sun, like a heaven-white dove That sang a song that needed to be sung She said it’s alright (Chorus 1) It’s alright I was a witness when insanity opened a business And set up shop on my front lawn But still it’s alright Then I trailed behind me, selling itself at a loss From Philadelphia clear to California But still it’s alright I tried to eat or sleep or fuck away My tendency to let loneliness lay with me All day and night I was consumed by a two-dimensional view Of how I was perceived through the eyes Of you—and you—and you (Verse 3) I closed my eyes, envisioning what would be If we transmuted fear into belief And it was alright I had visions of Gandhi and Martin Luther King I finally understood what Jesus was saying He said, “It’s alright.” Then all the tortured, bruised and battered souls Appeared in the clouds as if to let me know They were alright Saying in spite of confusion, in spite of the pain Our dearly beloved have gathered here today to sing “It’s alright!”
