LYRICS
New Age of Sun
Blinded, you can't see
There's more light than you can believe
Now songs like pearls on twine
Fall off one at a time

New age of sun, new age of sun
Falling, yes I'm falling into one

Voices are rising
Speaking on the wind
Now rays of ice
Break in the morning light

New age of sun, new age of sun
Falling, yes I'm falling into one

Moonlight on the sea
Will fade eventually
The source that was within
Now will begin again

New age of sun, new age of sun
Falling, yes I'm falling into one
Desert Rose
I searched so hard to find myself
Inside of an old ghost town
I see your face, it's all around
Some things we're never meant to know

It always rains through the night
Cast upon a shadow of stone
I have dreamed of where you are
Some distant place where nothing grows

Desert rose, desert rose
Waiting for the water to flow
Water flows, my life goes
On the other side I'll see you there
You're not supposed to die so close
You die upon my side my desert rose

You've run away into the dawn
Somewhere to run and to hide
This world is lost without your life
Some things we're never meant to find

When we unite once again
On the edge of time in lands so far
I'll hold you close and make the most
Of the music that pours from my guitar

Desert rose, desert rose
Waiting for the water to flow
Water flows, my life goes
On the other side I'll see you there
You're not supposed to die so close
You die upon my side my desert rose
Don't die upon my side
Traveling Man
Working out in the mountains
Running out 'round the world
Sailing out to Paris
With the Queen of Monaco's pearls
He's a master of illusion
With a full house in his hand
He's been all around the whole wide world
But now he's just a traveling
man

Next stop Argentina
Then good old Mexico
Over top the Andes /> The bottom of the globe
Seven more days in Rio
Was all that he could stand
He's been all around the whole wide world
And now he's just a traveling man
/> He's going down in history
He's going down in history oh, lord

He went down to Brooklyn
He went out to France
He went back to Memphis
To see the King at last
Drank his way to Vegas
'Till he could barely stand
He's been all around the whole wide world
And now he's just a traveling man

One thing that's for certain
His luck would never last
Lost his money in a card game
And his mind back in the past
You can scream out on the highways
You can stargaze all you can
You can look all around the whole wide world
But now he's just a
traveling man

He wound up in Asia
Where he wouldn't tell
Tempted and forsaken
He had been through hell
Back on down the road
And praying for the promised land
He's been all around the whole wide world
And now he' just a traveling man

He's going down in history
He's going down in history oh, lord
/> When they founded California
He was standing tall
Orbiting the planet
And life was much too small
He settled down into Houston
Said "traveling be damned,
He's been all around the whole wide world
And he'll always be a traveling man

Instrumental
Farm Dreams
It's time to walk away and start back over again
A woman with a heartache is a dangerous sin
Every time I'm gonna leave you gotta catch my breath
And take another look at what I've done to myself

Well uh-huh, you gotta let those teardrops fall Well
uh-huh, you gotta let those teardrops fall

It's time to turn around I'm gonna head down south
Your heart is in my hand and your taste in my mouth
So long baby gotta leave you this time
I wish it could be easy but it feels like a crime

Well
uh-huh you gotta let those teardrops fall
Well uh-huh, you gotta let those teardrops fall
You can't take back what you've given
A broken bottle and a mountain to climb
It's hard enough to make a living
And even harder to say goodbye

But the farm is waiting, the fish are baiting
The fields shine gold in the sun
But the clock keeps ticking, the dream keeps slipping
And I'm still out on the run

Well
uh-huh, you gotta let those teardrops fall
Well uh-huh, you gotta let those teardrops fall
Quicksand
He packed up all his bags where no one would see them
He never had to settle down, he never had a reason
He tried to tie up all his lose ends and put them in the past
All except one remained, he swore it'd be the last
Hell and fire in the sky and rock upon the road
Were not enough to stop him, he had to go alone There was a flame in the sky
bound to follow him
The words echoed in his head as he repeated them

If not today then tomorrow
If not tomorrow then the next day
'Cause the day after that I've gone away

On the low horizon where the mountains meet the sky
Just beyond the desert where nothing is alive
The time was drawing near but would he have all that he needed?
The mistakes of the past were bound to be repeated

Nothing out there can survive
The night slips away like sand
You'll have to make it back before it gets light
So many years you've been running away
Now you might not get a chance
If not today then tomorrow
If not tomorrow then the next day
'Cause the day after that I've gone away

Steady in his gaze in the silence of the sun
He was only waiting for the end to come
There was not a way to speak the words to her
before He faded to the night forever more

If not today then tomorrow
If not tomorrow then the next day
'Cause the day after that I've gone away
Slain
Gold guitars and tiny stars
Tell the story of ours
Love lost too late
Far gone and far apart

Always grey rain
Upon the northern plains
In no man's land
Here lies the boy she's slain

That boy is dead
He's lost his mind
That's how it is sometimes
When you lose your prime

That boy is dead
He's lost his soul
It's hard to see sometimes
In the devil's cove
In the distance
He sees she's come at last
But here's just ruins
Of forgotten past

Lone grey rider
He sees the wild blue eyes
Searching for him
He's on the other side

That boy is dead
He's lost his mind
That's how it is sometimes
When you lose your prime

That boy is dead
He's lost his soul
It's hard to see sometimes
In the devil's cove
Maritime Rag
It's ragtime, it's the Maritime rag!
Wrong Side
When the past comes back to haunt you
And you're living in Florida
And life's a joy to wake each day
And to see her pretty face

Well now he's on the run now
Gotta make that judgement date
With a greedy lawyer and a southern court
And the D. A. holds the fate

Nine years worth of living
Trapped up in a cage
What a waste to be sent away
At such a tender age

He woke up in the morning
And everything was gone
The price he paid for that crime in Dade
When he proved the right ones wrong

He never saw
The final straw
And now
he's on the wrong side of the law
When you can't see in the future
'Cause you can't
forget the past
You're on the wrong side of the law
Side of the law
Side of the law
Wrong side of the law

When you're going down to South Beach
And you look so hard to find
The simple way he passed the day
In the corner of his mind

Well farewell sandy beaches
The sun has gone away
How can he go on so long
Without the light of day?

All that's back behind him
Gotta learn to face the truth
The dream he had turned out so bad
Now there's nothing left to lose

Now he sees the shadows
And the writing on the wall
He wouldn't know how to be free
Until he lost it all

He never saw
The final straw
And now he's on the wrong side of the law
When you can't see in the future
'Cause you can't forget the past
You're on the wrong side of the law
Side of the law
Side of the law
Wrong side of the law
