Desdemona 03:02
Oh woman please be true I’m not a man that reads right through An unfaithful heart With pretty words that tear my world apart Don’t lie to me tonight We just might not see the light Don’t lie to me tonight I don’t wanna, I don’t wanna fight (Chorus) Desdemona, turn the lights off Tell me it’s nothing, tell me it’s nothing That I can’t bear Desdemona, turn the lights off Tell me it’s nothing, tell me it’s nothing That I can’t bear Oh woman please be true If I’m right, then I’ve wronged you Oh Lord what have I done? There she goes, her eyes are closed and gone. (Chorus)
2.
Find a girl, treat her right stay awake, laugh all night oh you and me, me and you Hold her hand, don’t let go and if you love her, let her know oh you and me, me and you And if you’re feeling kind of scared just remember why (Chorus) Two stupid kids with our hearts on fire We lost control as the flames got higher Oh we’re carried away with a burning desire Two stupid kids with our hearts on fire. I never thought this would be me one plus one and now there’s three oh you and me, me and you All our friends went out tonight I stayed in cause money’s too tight oh you and me, me and you And if you’re feeling kind of scared just remember why (Chorus)
3.
The top drawers are empty I don’t have enough things to replace all of your stuff. Nothing’s the same but the memories remain haunting the closets there’s a ghost in my brain. (Pre-chorus) In a house that’s divided there’s no use in fighting when you’re already down on your knees (Chorus) So please, be gentle with me you’re holding my heart just let it down easy I wait for your phone call or a letter to come but you must have found yourself a new someone. And maybe you like how she does her hair give it awhile you just won’t care (Pre-chorus) (Chorus 2x)
4.
There will be far more tears tonight than she has cried in her whole life she calls her dad and tells him everything’s alright but it’s all a lie Starts to stay at his friend’s place they laugh say he’ll forget her face but overnight as he starts to close his eyes he sees her smile (Chorus) Why do we choose not to love the right one why don’t we choose the love that’s always enough life could be easy for me, life could be easy for you why don’t we, ever see it through. Fear that forces out the words all the hopes and dreams gone left heard it’s better not to let themselves get hurt this time and they’re telling lies (Chorus) I’m tired of being scared of loving you I’m tired of being scared of something new Life could be easy for me Life could be easy for you Why don’t we ever see it through (Chorus)

Dink's Song 03:27
If I had wings like Noah's dove I'd fly the river to the one I love Fare thee well, my honey, fare thee well I had a man who was long and tall Moved his body like a cannon ball Fare thee well, my honey, fare thee well Remember one evening, it was pouring' rain And in my heart, I felt an achin' pain Fare thee well, my honey, fare thee well Muddy river runs muddy 'n' wild You can't care the bloody for my unborn child Fare thee well, my honey, fare thee well One of these mornings it won’t be long You’ll call my name and I’ll be gone Fare thee well, my honey, fare thee well
