Reach for the Sky Comp. Michael James Ness When I was young I was invincible I find myself now thinking twice I never thought about no future Its just the roll of the dice But the day may come when you've got something to lose And just when you think you're done paying dues And you say to yourself, dear God what have I done? And hope its not too late 'cause tomorrow may never come. [Chorus:] Reach for the sky, 'cause tomorrow may never come Reach for the sky, 'cause tomorrow may never come Yesterday is history And tomorrow's a mystery But baby right now Its just about you and me You can run you can hide, just like Bonnie and Clyde Reach for the sky ain't never gonna die And I thank the Lord for the love I have found And hold you tight cause tomorrow may never come [Chorus] So if you please take this moment Try if you can make it last Don't think about no future And just forget about the past And make it last. [Chorus]

Don’t Drag Me Down Comp. M. J. Ness Children are taught to hate, Parents just couldn't wait Some are rich and some are poor, Others will just suffer more Have you ever been ashamed? And felt society try to keep you down? I begin to watch things change And see them turn around [Chorus:] Turn around, they'll try to keep you down Turn around, turn around don't drag me down Ignorance like a gun in hand, Reach out to the Promised Land Your history books are full of lies, Media-blitz gonna dry your eyes Have you ever been afraid? And felt society try to keep you down? I begin to watch things change And see them turn around [Chorus] Ignorance like a gun in hand Reach out to the Promised Land Your history books are full of lies, Media -blitz gonna dry your eyes You’re eighteen wanna be a man Your granddaddy's in the Ku Klux Klan Taking two steps forward and four steps back Gonna go to the white house and paint it black [Chorus]

Alone and Forsaken Comp. Hank Williams We met in the springtime when blossoms unfold The pastures were green and the meadows were gold Our love was in flower as summer grew on Our love like the leaves now have withered and gone The roses have faded, there's frost at my door The birds in the morning don't sing anymore The grass in the valley is starting to die And out in the darkness the whippoorwills cry [Chorus:] Alone and forsaken by fate and by man Oh Lord, if you hear me, please hold to my hand Oh, please understand Oh, where has she gone to? Oh, where can she be? She may have forsaken some other like me She promised to honor to love and obey Each vow was a plaything that she threw away [Chorus] The darkness has fallen, the sky has turned gray The hound in the distance is starting to bay I wonder, I wonder what she's thinking of Forsaken, forgotten, without any love [Chorus] 2x

Dear Lover 04:42
Dear Lover Comp. M. J. Ness [Verse:] Yeah, loving Over and over again now It ain't nothing girl Till you've felt the pain Up against the wall Why does love always have to hurt? Your scratches run across my back And then a tear [Chorus] Dear lover I can't take the pain no more Dear lover I pick my heart up from the floor Dear lover I can't believe it's come to this Dear lover Give me one last painful kiss There ain't nothin' In this world for free now So how high of a price Will you pay Hear the screams so loud Wake up to the broken glass It's a scene from bad to worse And many more tears [Chorus]

Don't Take Me For Granted Composer: M. J. Ness I'm your worn in leather jacket I'm the volume in your fucked up teenage band A bag of smokes and a six pack I'm the dreams you had walking down the railroad tracks You and Me. I'm your first taste of romance I'm your first broken heart on a Saturday night Guys like us ain't got no chance But I'm the thing that keeps you and me alive But not forever [Chorus 1:] So take me down the road Take me to the show Its something to believe in That no one else knows But don't take me for granted I'm the blood on your guitar I'm that wave you caught back in 1975 I'm as strong as a thousand armies I'm as soft as petal on a long stem rose I am love [Chorus 2] So take me down the road Take me to the show Its something to believe in That no one else knows But don't take me for granted I'm with you when you're born You can take me when you die With all the reasons why But don't take me for granted [Chorus 3]

Down On The World Again Comp. M. J. Ness This ain't the way it's supposed to be There's a dark cloud following me I'm disillusioned and I'm down on the world again There's movies going on in my head And all I can see is the color red I'm relentless and I'm down on the world again [Chorus 1:] Give me tomorrow's broken dreams now I'm feeling like a loaded gun There's a world of guilt written on my face And I feel ashamed for the human race I've been forsaken and I'm down on the world again Well, I feel so alone in this crowd My thoughts of despair are getting loud I'm disrespected and I'm down on the world again Love and tolerance have abandoned me And I feel the gloom hovering over me I'm resentful and I'm down on the world again [Chorus 2:] Give me tomorrow's broken dreams now I'm feeling like a loaded gun Give me tomorrow's holy schemes now, so hopeless When there's no place left to run Well, I tried to play for the higher stakes You won't let me forget my mistakes I'm unforgiven and I'm down on the world again This ain't the way it's supposed to be There's a dark cloud following me I'm distorted and I'm down on the world again

Angel’s Wings Composer: Michael James Ness / Jon Wickersham [Chorus:] You say you're down on your luck Hey baby it's a long, long way up Hold back now, hold back your fears You say you're really down and out And you feel like there's no way out now Let go now let go of your tears some more How many times have you asked yourself? Is this the hand of fate now that I've been dealt? You're so disillusioned this can't be real And you can't stand now the way you feel I don't care about what they say I won't live or die that way Tired of figuring out things on my own Angel's wings won't you carry me home? [Chorus] [Break] [Chorus] I triumphed in the face of adversity And I became the man I never thought I'd be And now my biggest challenge, a thing called love I guess I'm not as tough as I thought I was I don't care about what they say I wanna marry you some day When I wake up, it's a brand new day Angel's wings gonna carry you away Angel's wings gonna carry me away Angel's wings gonna carry us away Gonna carry us away Gonna carry us away Gonna carry us away
