TESTIFY

Oh baby don’t you cry
Don’t mistake me for some other guy
Not here to do you harm
Let me wrap you up and keep you warm
Oh baby fear no fear
Let me take you far away from here
There’s a place that we can go
There’s a thing I think you need to know

I come to testify
Love is the only reason why
I come to testify
And I love you ’til the day I die

Oh babe this world is cold
But you’re much too young to feel so old
So baby dry your tears
Been searching for a thousand years

I come to testify
Love is the only reason why
I come to testify
And I love you ’til the day I die

Oh baby please believe
say yes and I will never leave 

I come to testify
Love is the only reason why
I come to testify
And I love you ’til the day I die

 

JUST THE SAME

Give me something I can hold
cuz I feel so cold tonight
Give me something I can feel
cuz it’s all too real tonight

Give me something I can touch
cuz there’s too much pain tonight
Give me something you can spare
cuz I feel so scared tonight

In the dark of night
by the light of day
you might wonder why I talk this way
there’s no wrong or right
in this endless fight
In the end I’m just the same

Tell me something show me why
cuz I feel so old tonight
Tell me something I can try
cuz I will not die tonight

In the dark of night
by the light of day
you might wonder why I act this way
there’s no wrong or right
in this endless fight
In the end I’m just the same

I go on
I go on
I go on
Just the same.

Be my bebe, be my friend
There’s no maybe, no pretend
Be my bebe, be my friend
Be with me until the story ends

In the dark of night
by the light of day
you might wonder why I act this way
there’s no wrong or right
in this endless fight
In the end I’m just the same

In the dark of night
by the light of day
you might wonder why I talk this way
there’s no wrong or right
in this endless fight
In the end I’m just the same

I go on
I go on
I go on
Just the same.

I go on
I go on
I go on
Just the same.


CRAZY LIFE

Oh darlin’ when the dark times come
And you don’t know what to do
There’s a calm beyond the storm
Somehow some way we get through
Nothing gonna hold us back
Nothing gonna keep us down
This crazy life goes round and round

Oh honey when the hard times come
And it seems too much to bear
Take my hand bebe we’re not done
This ain’t over don’t be scared
Nothing gonna hold us back
Nothing gonna keep us down
This crazy life goes round and round

Oh my dear
Fear no fear

Oh bebe mercy calls
Hard times fade dark times burn
When we’re up against the wall
Hang on tight the tides will turn
Nothing gonna hold us back
Nothing gonna take us down
This crazy life goes round and round

Oh my dear
Life’s uncertain 
never say never
Fear no fear
Love goes on forever and ever
Loves goes on
after the dark night fades 
into the new day’s dawn

Oh my dear
Life’s uncertain 
never say never
Fear no fear
Love goes on forever and ever
Love is here
after the storm has gone
after this road is done
Love goes on
after the dark times come 
after the battle’s won

Bebe when it’s just too much
Take my hand and feel my touch

Oh my dear
Fear no fear
Love goes on
Love is here
Love is strong
Love is here

 

IF I HAD
Words/Music by Craig Spector

If I had a grain of sand
I’d build a castle in my hands 
a secret shelter from the raging storm 
a sanctuary that would keep us warm 

If I had a drop of rain
I’d build a sea to wash away the pain
filled with currents dark 
and deep and wide
and all our troubles on the other side

But when it’s coming down baby
And there’s just no other way
Oh when it’s coming down all around
I’ve heard them say…

‘If I had another chance
I’d trade it all for just another dance
If I had another dream to share
I’d give it all away and never care…’

But when it’s coming down baby
And there’s just no other way
Oh when it’s coming down all around
This ain’t no game
And when it’s coming down baby
And there's nothing left to say
Oh when it’s coming down all around
Could be hell to pay

I believe in you
and all that we’ve been through
it’s made us stronger 
than we ever knew
the things we feel they keep us real
and real will have to do

Cuz when it’s coming down baby
And there’s just no other way
Oh when it’s coming down all around
This ain’t no game
Oh when it’s coming down baby
And there’s nothing left to say
Oh when it’s coming down all around
Could be hell to pay
Oh when it’s coming down baby
Oh when it’s coming down all around
Could be hell to pay

If I had another dream…

Oh bebe can you feel me
It’s too real to hide
Oh bebe got a sickness
that I can’t deny
Oh bebe could you hold me
When I’m cold inside
Oh bebe gotta live it
’Til I kiss the sky

Oh oh watch me go 
Cuz I’m in it yeah I’m in it yo
Oh oh right down to the bone

Oh bebe didn’t choose this
Such a twisted ride
Oh bebe ain’t gonna lose this
I got no place to hide
Oh bebe ain’t no reason
No puzzle to decide
Oh bebe gotta fight this
’Til I kiss the sky 

Oh oh watch me go 
Cuz I’m in it yeah I’m in it yo
Oh right down to the bone
Oh oh watch me go 
Cuz I’m in it yeah I’m in it yo
Oh oh right down to the bone

Oh oh watch me go 
Cuz I’m in it yeah I’m in it yo
Oh right down to the bone
Oh oh watch me go 
Cuz I’m in it yeah I’m in it yo
Oh oh right down to the bone

 

RESURRECTION ROAD
Words/Music by Craig Spector

Gotta story I could tell ya
that requires no explanation
when you’re on the road to Hell
or some other destination.
No modesty or pride
no shame or consternation.
Embrace the bloody ride
and abandon expectation.

Gotta walk before you run
gotta crawl before you stand.
On the Resurrection Road
you could use a helping hand.
Gotta walk before you run
gotta crawl before you stand.
On the Resurrection Road
we all need a helping hand.

When artifice has crumbled
and your dreams all swept away
when everything’s a struggle
just to live another day.
When the sickness that’s inside you
makes you think you’re gonna die
You can lay down you can stay down
you can get up you can fight.

Gotta sink before you rise
gonna fall before you fly.
On the Resurrection Road
there just ain’t no place to hide.
Gotta walk before you run
gotta crawl before you stand.
On the Resurrection Road
we all need a helping hand.

Sometimes you’re gonna stumble.  
Sometimes you're gonna fall.
Your mileage may be varied
But it happens to us all.
So hang on to your hat.
and hold on to your soul.
You might lose a lot of things
But don’t you lose control.

Gotta hurt before you heal
gotta live until you die.
On the Resurrection Road
there’s no need to wonder why.
Gotta walk before you run
gotta crawl before you stand.
On the Resurrection Road
we all need a helping hand.

So take a tip from me
as you pass me in the night.
The road it might get twisted
but I think you’ll be all right.
The strong are gonna suffer
The weak are gonna pay.
But in the end you’ll see my friend
there’s just no other way.

Gotta hurt before you heal
gotta live until you die.
On the Resurrection Road
there’s no need to wonder why.

Gotta walk before you run
gotta crawl before you stand.
On the Resurrection Road
we all need a helping hand.

Gotta sink before you rise
gonna fall before you fly.
On the Resurrection Road
there just ain’t no place to hide.

Gotta walk before you run
gotta crawl before you stand.
On the Resurrection Road
we all need a helping hand.

On the Resurrection Road
we all need a helping hand.

On the Resurrection Road
we all need a helping hand.

 

NEVER BE ME
Words/Music by Craig Spector

And when all’s said and done
A random bit
of circumstance
A twist of fate
a cruel caprice 
A wage of sin 
for my release.

Never be me 
never be me again
So I’ve been told.

But when all’s said and done
a random twist
of happenstance
It’s not too late for me
to find some peace
a page within
my own surcease.

Never be me 
never be me again
What dreams may burn
Never be me 
never be me again
the pages turn...

So when all’s said and done
I take the stage
release my rage
into the sun.

Never be me 
never be me again
And dreams may burn
Never be me 
never be me again
the pages turn.

Never be me 
never be me again
What did I learn?
Never be me 
never be me again
I take my turn.

Never be me 
never be me again.
 

FINISH THIS (MY SHIVAREE)
Words/Music by Craig Spector

Sometimes I get it twisted
Like there’s only here, and down
And everything’s a mystery
Since the circus came to town.
The games are all so crooked
The rides just make me ill
The fortune teller took my hand
and placed a bitter pill

Finish this, she said
Finish this
Before you go you have to 
Finish this

The midway is too garish
The calliope’s too shrill
The carny barkers hustle
every mark and rube and shill.
Take a chance win a prize they cry,
their fingers in the till
The fortune teller took my hand
and whispered oh so still

Finish this, she said
Finish this
Before you go you have to 
Finish this
Finish this, she said
Finish this
If you want to know you have to 
Finish this

The funhouse mirrors beckon
Got a thousand ways to see
And all of them are broken 
And none of them are me

The spec girls in their slop shoes
where the gandy dancers swing
While gillies fish for ducats
just to get inside the ring
The animals are restless
as the web girls take a spin
The fortune teller took my hand
and then she led me in

Finish this, she said
Finish this
Before you go you have to 
Finish this

Finish this, she said
Finish this
If you’re in the show you have to 
Finish this

Tomorrow this’ll all be gone
Down another town or three
And me I might be waiting
just to make my shivaree
But if you do not see me
I’m just around the bend 
Cuz everything’s a mystery
but I’ll see you again

Finish this, she said
Finish this
Before you go you have to 
Finish this

Finish this, she said
Finish this
If you wanna know you have to 
Finish this
