1.  If I’m Late (feat. Joseph Arthur)

Oh, baby, if I’m late

Say you’re gonna wait for me

Cause you know darlin’ you are the one

You’re the one I really want to see

You didn’t want to be no busy man

And you never knew how to make no plans

Oh, baby, if I’m late

Say you’re gonna wait for me

 

You look like a man climbin’ up the side of a mountain

You’re just waitin’ for a chance to rest a while

Days go by faster than you can count ‘em

And it’s so cold up there,

And I’m so far away from your smile

 

Oh, baby, if I’m late

Say you’re gonna wait for me

Cause you know darlin’ you are the one

You’re the one I really want to see

And if I coulda got it straight inside

I seem to be a little too preoccupied

Oh, baby, if I’m late

Say you’re gonna wait for me

 

I dreamed I saw you standin’ by your doorway

Your arms reached out and somehow I couldn’t get close to you

I tried to move faster but I wasn’t movin’ your way

But that was just a dream

 

It don’t really have to come true

 

Oh, baby, if I’m late

Say you’re gonna wait for me

Oh, baby, if I’m late

Say you’re gonna wait for me

 

If I’m late, say you’re gonna wait

If I’m late, say you’re gonna wait for me

 

 

2.  It’s Not The Spotlight

(Gerry Goffin, Barry Goldberg)

Screen Gems-EMI Music Inc. (BMI) © Sony/ATV Music Publishing LLC

 

If I ever feel the light again shinin' down on me

I don't have to tell you, how welcome it will be

I felt the light before, but I let it slip away

But I still keep on believin' that it'll come back some day

 

Chorus:

It's not the spotlight, it's not the cam'ra light

It's not the street light, on some ol’ street of dreams

It ain't the moonlight, not even the sunlight

But I've seen it shinin' in your eyes, an' you know what I mean

 

Some times, I try to tell myself, the light was never real

Just a fantasy that used to be, the way I used to feel

But you and I know better, even though it's been so long

If you recall your recollections well, you'll never tell me I’m wrong

 

Chorus:

It's not the spotlight, it's not the cam'ra light

It's not the street light, on some ol’ street of dreams

It ain't the moonlight, not even the sunlight

But I've seen it shinin' in your eyes, an' you know what I mean

 

If I ever feel the light again y’know things will have to change Names and faces, homes and places, will have to be rearranged You can help it come about, if you’re ever so inclined

Ain’t no rhyme or reason why, anyone can’t change their mind

 

Chorus:

 

It's not the spotlight, it's not the cam'ra light

It's not the street light, on some ol’ street of dreams

It ain't the moonlight, not even the sunlight

But I've seen it shinin' in your eyes, an' you know what I mean

 

3.  Archives

(Louise Goffin)

Eliden Songs, ASCAP

 

Old friends waving from a passenger train

Oh boy, familiar to me in impossible ways

A new day, a picture in my hand of who I used to be

 

Chorus:

Living in a world of archives

It’s not real

Memories ruling our lives

If I go to sleep, please wake me soon Waiting for the bird of empathy

Diving through, out of an old mythology

 

Stay calm

I’m gonna write a happy ending

Oh boy, what’s it gonna take to change your mind Breathe deep, you’ll own yours and I’ll own mine

 

Living in a world of archives

It’s not real

Memories ruling our lives

If I go to sleep, please wake me soon Waiting for the bird of empathy Rising through

 

Deep within your smile I see all I want to see

 

Bridge:

I don’t wanna be stuck here

I don’t wanna live a shadow of a life

So when I’m scared, please bring me down To earth and ground

 

Living in a world of archives

It’s not real

Memories ruling our lives

If I go to sleep, please wake me soon Waiting for the bird of empathy

 

And I need you

Time to write our own mythology

A better view, free to be who we were born to be

 

Free to say goodbye to all of these Pictures of a story told between Old friends

Waving from a passenger train

 

4.  (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman

(Gerry Goffin, Carole King, Jerry Wexler)

Screen Gems-EMI Music Inc. (BMI) © Sony/ATV Music Publishing LLC

 

Looking out on the morning rain

I used to feel so uninspired

And when I knew I had to face another day Lord, it made me feel so tired

 

Before the day I met you, life was so unkind Your the key to my peace of mind

 

'Cause you make me feel, You make me feel,

You make me feel like

A natural woman

 

When my soul was in the lost and found

You came along to claim it

I didn't know just what was wrong with me

‘Till your kiss helped me name it

Now I'm no longer doubtful, of what I'm living for If I make you happy I don't need to do more

 

'Cause you make me feel, You make me feel,

You make me feel like

A natural woman

 

Oh, baby, what you done to me (what you done to me) You make me feel so good inside (so good inside) And I just want to be (want to be)

Close to you, you make me feel so alive

 

'Cause you make me feel, You make me feel,

 

You make me feel like A natural woman

6.  Fifth of July

 

(Louise Goffin, Reid Savage)

South of Venus Music ASCAP, WB MUSIC CORP - ASCAP

 

On the fifth of July

There were broken cartons everywhere Out on the beaches

Something was stirring in the air

Well I can still remember

All the anthems we did sing

On the fifth of July

Well it all seems like a dream to me now Everybody was staring up to the sky

 

Walking through the ruins Confetti and cherry bomb pies Maybe we lost our innocence Maybe the smoke got in our eyes

 

And I wonder where have you gone? On this fifth of July

 

You want to know

Am I coming home?

Can I forget my loveless pride?

I had my fireworks

With you a spark still there inside

 

And I wonder where have you gone? Under flares and bright torches

I keep holding on

 

I fell asleep beneath the auburn sky And dreamt I crossed the Delaware But when I reached the other side

I lost what I thought was standing there

 

On the fifth of July

It should’ve been a day of independence

 

Now I wonder where you’ve gone On the fifth of July

On the fifth of July

 

7.  Take A Giant Step (feat. Jakob Dylan)

(Gerry Goffin, Carole King)

Screen Gems-EMI Music Inc. (BMI) © Sony/ATV Music Publishing LLC

 

Though you've played at love and lost

And sorrow's turned your heart to frost

I will melt your heart again.

Remember the feeling as a child

When you woke up and morning smiled

It's time you felt like you did then.

There's just no percentage in remembering the past It's time you learned to live again at last.

 

Come with me, leave yesterday behind And take a giant step outside your mind.

 

You stare at me in disbelief

You say for you there's no relieve

But I swear I'll prove you wrong.

Don't stay in your lonely room

Just staring back in silent gloom.

That's not where you belong

Come with me I'll take you where the taste of life is green And everyday holds wonders to be seen.

 

Come with me, leave yesterday behind And take a giant step outside your mind.

 

 

8.  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

 

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

 

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 It’s 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

 

9. Devil’s Door (feat. Cyanide Social Club)

(Jeff Trott, Chris Seefried, Louise Goffin)

Mortar and Pestle/OLE Publishing, HALL NOTES/BMI, ASCAP, Eliden Songs ASCAP

 

I watched the sun come up, the night draw dark, over all my trials Slept in the front seat, and the back seat

I tied a ribbon of miles...felt like I’d been driving for three hundred days No matter how far I’d go, I couldn’t get away

 

Chorus:

I broke down, yes I did

on Hope Street, I broke down, yes I did

I broke down right outside the devil’s door

 

My daddy used to tell me, when I was a little girl

Don’t lose faith in people, don’t give up on this crazy world

I was gonna do it, I was

I was gonna throw my life away

I rang the bell, banged on the door, but he wasn’t in that day

 

Chorus:

I broke down, yes I did

On Hope Street, I broke down, yes I did, yes I did I broke down right outside the devil’s door

 

Bridge:

I wanted in, I knew this for sure

I saw his arm around another...I said “He don’t want me anymore”

 

Chorus:

I broke down, yes I did

On Hope Street, I broke down, yes I did, yes I did I broke down right outside the devil’s door

The devil’s door

 

10.  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
