Songs From The Mine

When I started to record this album, I didn’t know where it would take me, but one thing was clear to me: this record would be held to what I loved in songs and performance, down to the choosing of which songs to record, and what the arrangements would be.  Songs can come from many sources, sometimes they are spiritual dilemmas and questions that need to be answered through the writing of them. Other times they are to uplift, be playful and infuse the day with fun.  The reward is a sense of purpose: to soothe and energize, to give hope and bring stories to light to help better understand what a song could illuminate in its own way.

My job was to love and nurture each song in its essence, and protect it from any influences it didn’t need. This project was infinitely graced by the generosity and talent of all the cowriters, musicians and engineers without whom this couldn’t have been made.  I wanted you to not only enjoy listening, but I was intent that you would hold a beautiful package in your hands...may you enjoy!

Lyrics


1. Everybody But You

(Louise Goffin, Sam Ashworth)

Eliden Songs ASCAP, Patron and Profit Publishing BMI

 

Everybody sees all through these days
that its your life in every way
everybody knows that its your time
everybody but you

They know you’re cool
they know you’re smart
they see the light
sets you apart
everyone can tell
that its your time
everybody but you

You don’t need a crutch to get you through
you don’t need much
you are the proof
everyone can tell that its your time
everybody but you

Youʼre everyone
youʼre everything
you take my breath
and make it sing
every one can tell
that its your time
everybody but you

Someday soon
you won’t be crying
Someday soon
you won’t be crying
some day soon
youʼll see it too
you’ll see it too

2. Follow My Heart

(Louise Goffin, Liz Rose)

Eliden Songs ASCAP, Liz Rose Music BMI/ Warner-Tamerlane Publishing Corp. BMI

 

Slipped under fences
climbed out of windows
take to the wind
whichever way the wind blows
but I always followed my heart

Turned on the sprinklers
picked all the roses
made an escape just
before some door closed
but I always followed my heart

I have days
when I look up to the sky
thereʼs not a cloud in sight
I have nights
when I scold myself
and hold myself
and say that its alright
cause I always follow my heart

Went for the worst one
ran from the best
but I have the scars
and the tears and tear
in my dress
cause I always follow my heart

I have days
when I look up to the sky
thereʼs not a cloud in sight
and I have nights
when I scold myself
and hold myself
and say that its alright
cause I always follow my heart

Iʼve been down some roads I thought love lived on
got there and then gone
when Iʼm lost I listen for my own song
thatʼs when I know where to start,
I always follow my heart

3. We Belong Together

(Louise Goffin, James Hall, Chris Aaron) Eliden Songs, ASCAP, Possession Songs ASCAP, Band of Llamas Music BMI

 

Weʼre in love
We belong together
Weʼre in love
We learn to care for each other
We donʼt care what the people may say,
Weʼre sisters and brothers
yeah we all got a family thing to move us along

You were right
You know you canʼt do this alone
Itʼs all right
Come on and claim my heart as yourown
Iʼll be there when you reach out to me
so come on and call me
Tell me what you came here to say
My kitchen in warm

Everybody wants to belong
And we all play a part in this song
Hey, Hey, nothinʼ fine as you could be wrong
Hold me close in your arms

Weʼre In Love,
We Belong Together
Weʼre in Love
We Learn to care for each other

 

4. Get With The World

(Louise Goffin, Darrell Brown)

Eliden Songs ASCAP, Black DragonFly Music / BMG Gold Music ASCAP , BMG Chrysalis Music

 

We were flying kites
down on the sands of Zuma beach
the air was tugging on the strings
with the violet sky out of reach
we werenʼt a victim to the wind
or the string wrapped round the
hand so we cut it loose, they spun out
broke like waves across the sand

Grab your mind, guard your heart
get on back to who you are
and get with the world, get with the world
before the world gets to you
get with the world, get with the world
before the world gets to you

You know, you know, you know its true
You know, you know, you know its true

When you go away to that black hole
youʼre someone I miss
and when you come out of hiding and find that hope
is something that exists
and you think thereʼs no way out,
you wonʼt find it there on the floor
it's your dream, stop dreaming those walls
and dream a door

Grab your mind, guard your heart
Get on back to who you are
and Get with the world, Get with the world
Before the world gets to you
Get with the world, Get with the world
Before the world gets to you

You know, you know, you know its true
You know, you know, you know its true

Grab your mind, guard your heart
Get on back to who you are
and Get with the world, Get with the world
Before the world gets to you
Get with the world, Get with the world
Before the world gets to you

 

5. Watching The Sky Turn Blue

(Louise Goffin, Steve Dean)

Eliden Songs ASCAP , Bethar Music BMI

 

Go on, make a mistake
Come on, letʼs jump in the lake
Whatʼs your favorite song?
Watching the sky turn blue
You always know where to find me
I used to do nothing of the kind, see Iʼm just
Sitting here on this fence
Watching the sky turn blue

Chorus:
Doncha think its about time, about time, about time The sun shined down on you?

Give the take, Iʼll take the give
In the middle of my coffee break
Youʼll find me on the ferris wheel
Watching the sky turn blue

Chorus:
Doncha think its about time, about time, about time The sun shined down on you?

Sunshine down, Sunshine down on you

Doncha think its about time, about time, about time Doncha think its about time, about time, about time Doncha think its about time, about time, about time

The sun shined down on you?

Watching The Sky Turn Blue
Watching The Sky Turn Blue

Take the give, Iʼll give the take
Give the take, Iʼll take the give
Doncha think its about time, about time, about time The sun shined down on you?
Watching The Sky Turn Blue
Sunshine down, Sunshine down

6. Deep Dark Night Of The Soul

(Louise Goffin, Corinne Lee, Craig Greenberg)

Eliden Songs ASCAP, With Love and Fists ASCAP,
Seeing Green Music ASCAP

 

I was building sand castles
right beside the shore
then a big wave crashing over
my kingdom was no more

I was eating ice cream
three scoops on my spoon
but it quickly melted on me
that summertime in June

Chorus:
Y’think I would’ve learned by then
Falling down the rabbit hole
In the end everything works out
Deep Dark Night of The Soul

J'aime des tasses de glace de peche dans le sable.
J'aime longtemps les promenades sur la plage avec mon chien coco et mon chat fifi.
J'aime les romans. Les romans nulles.
J'aime longtemps fumer et le ketchup aussi.

No more livin’ in straw houses
Dizzy on the wonder wheel
I’m a bad ass bitch with my shit together
Make my bridges out of steel

Y’think I would’ve learned by then
Falling down the rabbit hole
In the end everything works out
Deep Dark Night of The Soul

J'aime des tasses de glace de peche dans le sable.
J'aime longtemps fumer et ketchup aussi.
J'aime fumer beaucoup des cigarettes et parler du monde de longtemps.
J'aime parler de moi tous les temps.
J'aime parler de moi tous les temps.

Tous les temps
Tous les temps
Tous les temps
Tous les temps...

7. Here Where You Are Loved

(Louise Goffin, Billy Harvey)
Eliden Songs ASCAP, itaintheavysongs ASCAP

 

I know you never asked for it
mercy finds you
colors and reminds you
wherever you are

there will always be a yesterday
craving your attention
but I'm right here in the sun
here where you are loved
when you fee llikeyouare miles away
looking for direction
I'm right here in the sun
here where you are loved

out the window and the world goes by
taxis and red lights
half of your whole life
wherever you are

there will always be a yesterday
craving your attention
but I'm right here in the sun
here where you are loved
when you fee llikeyouare miles away
looking for direction
I'm right here in the sun
here where you are loved

there will always be what there will always be
I find my strength in you, you find your strength in me

there will always be a yesterday
craving your attention
but I'm right here in the sun
here where you are loved
I'm right here in the sun
here where you are loved

8. Some Of Them Will Fool You

(Louise Goffin, Steve Moakler)
Eliden Songs ASCAP , Nan Jam Music Publishing BMI

 

Is that how it went down? Is that what you heard ?
Is that what you took?
Is that what that means? Is that what you saw?
is that how it looked?
Who are you listening to?
What are they saying to you?

CHORUS
Some of them are in my head
Live where angels fear to tread
Some of them will fool ya
some of them will fool ya
Some I just met yesterday
Some don’t know the words they say
When they tell you
Its never good enough
Some of them will fool ya
And know nothing about love

vs. 2
If you ever try to walk a straight
line all of the time, even when you’re
lost and when you speak, you speak slow
watch where you, go listen real close
what are they saying to you?

CHORUS
Some of them are in your head
Even sleeping in your bed
Some of them will fool ya
some of them will fool ya
Some you just met yesterday
Some don’t know the words they say
When they tell you
Its never good enough
Some of them will fool ya
And know nothing about love

Bridge:
send ‘em back where they belong
and when they sing, you don’t sing along its only true if you believe them
so don’t believe them

CHORUS
Some of them are in my head
Even sleeping in my bed
Some of them will fool ya
some of them will fool ya
some of them will fool ya
And know nothing about love

9. Main Street Parade

(Louise Goffin, Lynda Kay Parker, Dustin Welch)
Eliden Songs ASCAP, Lynda Kay Publishing ASCAP,
Super Rooster Music SESAC - admin by 26F RPM, Inc.

 

vs. 1
big balloons soaring high all floating down the lane
what to do? I lost you in your main street parade
the streamers stream
the people scream and the children smile and wave
its not complicated

chorus
I donʼt need a big production
all I want is your sweet loving

vs. 2
another night of fireworks exploding in your sky
slight of hand, Iʼm looking up instead of in your eyes its not complicated

chorus
cause I donʼt need a big production
all I want is your sweet loving
canʼt stop the crowd pushing and shoving
all I want is your sweet loving

Bridge
we learn to forgive when we make mistakes
sometimes we give, sometimes we take
but every morning when I wake I see...

big balloons soaring high all floating down the lane
what to do? I lost you in your main street parade
you make it complicated

chorus
cause I donʼt need a big production
all I want is your sweet loving
canʼt stop the crowd pushing and shoving
all I want is your sweet loving

what to do?
I lost you in your main street parade.

10. Sword In Your Heart

(Louise Goffin, Billy Harvey)

Eliden Songs ASCAP, itaintheavysongs ASCAP

 

The sword in your heart
is pointing the way
it twists & it turns
but still it remains

Thereʼs love and thereʼs loss
In all that we dream
but hope overcomes
in what we donʼt see

It sure would help to listen
with all it has to say
when it starts to feel like anything
you do is in vain
The sword in your heart is pointing the way

The edge of the blade
has come to depend
on you to be faithful
but you bleed in the end

If only you would listen
to all it has to say
when you starts to feel like everything
you do is in vain
The sword in your heart is pointing the way

Youʼve lived this way too long
The wound you bear will mend
Say goodbye to your foul-weather friend

11. Good Life

(Louise Goffin, Andrew DeRoberts)

Eliden Songs ASCAP, Lanercost Publishing ASCAP

 

You don't have to be so selfish,
to make it on your own
cause all the things you carry ‘round
are only yours on loan

you ought to know by now
you can have a good life anyhow

It don’t matter if your mama cried
or your Daddy ran away
you can change the way the story ends
and be the one who stays

you ought to know by now
you can have a good life anyhow

CHORUS
You can have a good heart, give yourself a new start
there’s something you should know
we can make our own way
should have started yesterday
I’ll never let you go
start a good life right about now

Grab your coat and let’s go heading
for the California coast
you don’t have to have a beach front house
to feel the sand beneath your toes
you ought to know by now
you can have a good life anyhow

CHORUS
You can have a good heart, give yourself a new start
there’s something you should know
we can make our own way
should have started yesterday
I’ll never let you go
start a good life right about now

Dedicated to the young at heart
