Track Name: Falling Into Blues
Falling Into Blues
©2004 Kimrea

You used to love me
Like I was the cat's meow
You gave me your attention
You took me out on the town
That's yesterdays news
The rose has lost it's bloom
The thrill is gone, we're through
And I'm falling into blues

Falling into blues
Falling into blues
Nothing to hang onto
I'm falling into blues

You used to treat me
Like I was a treasure you'd found
You paid me compliments
You wanted me around
That was another life
Those happy days are gone
Something has died it's true
And I'm falling into blues

Falling into blues
Falling into blues
Nothing to hang onto
I'm falling into blues
Track Name: Emily Finds Love
Emily Finds Love
©2004 kimrea

I was walking by the river looking for a skipping stone
I put it right here in my pocket and carried it home

Emily finds love
Emily finds love
Where ever she goes
Emily finds love

I was sitting on the rooftop while all the world was sleeping in bed
Letting my imagination run wild out of my head

Emily finds love
Emily finds love
Where ever she goes
Emily finds love

I wouldn't want to live in a fishbowl, spend my life swimming in circles
I'd rather be taking my chances out here in this big old world

Emily finds love
Emily finds love
Where ever she goes
Emily finds love

Oh you know it's a mystery how we ever came this far
I'm betting on tomorrow and giving you my heart

Emily finds love
Emily finds love
Where ever she goes
Emily finds love
Track Name: In Between Lives
In Between Lives
©2004 kimrea

Don't know where I'm going, don't know what to do
I'm trying to decide, I havn't got a clue
Can't make up my mind, I'm inbetween lives

In between lives, It's like purgatory
Looking for an angel to hear my story
In betwen lives, waiting for the next role
Open the door and move me on

I was somebody once, not so long ago
I had that confidence, but now I don't know
I'm just hanging around, In between lives

In between lives, It's like purgatory
Looking for an angel to hear my story
In betwen lives, waiting for the next role
Open the door and move me on

I lost my job, they put me out in the street
The money's all gone, ain't got no family
No car, no home, no one would have me
I'm all alone, this tale is all I own

In between lives, It's like purgatory
Looking for an angel to hear my story
In betwen lives, waiting for the next role
Open the door and move me on

I was somebody once, not so long ago
I had that confidence, but now I don't know
I'm just hanging around, In between lives
In between lives
In between lives
Track Name: Priorities
Priorities
©2004 kimrea

Music's not my lover, he just follows me around
whispering sweet nothings, sometimes I write them down
But first I do the dishes and then I sweep the floor
First I feed the children, take care of business that's for sure

I got my priorites on
I got my priorities on
I take my time and consider where my decisions lead
I pray to keep my life in focus, I pray to clearly see
I got my priorities on
I got my priorities on

Art is not my mistress, she just visits frequently
I entertain her when I can and meet her family
But first I make the beds up and then I make the coffee
First I clothe the children, take care of business, can't you see


I got my priorities on
I got my priorities on
I take my time and consider where my decisions lead
I pray to keep my life in focus, I pray to clearly see
I got my priorities on
I got my priorities on

Work is not my master, he just helps me pay the bills
I'm happy to be working and thankful for my skills
First I plant the garden and then I bake the bread
First I teach the children, take care of business like I said

I got my priorities on
I got my priorities on

Those who use their talents to seek fortune and fame
Often wind up looking foolish and throw their lives away
First I fold the laundry and then I change the sheets
First I raise the children take care of business don't you see

I got my priorities on
I got my priorities on
I got my priorities on
Track Name: I Can Wait Forever
I Can Wait Forever
©2004 kimrea

Those boys tell me there are sharks in the pool
Those boys tell me I got to live by their rules
But I don't play their game
There's no winning any way
I keep my own mind
I take my own time
Certain some day I'll find what I'm looking for

I can wait forever for a love that's true
I can wait forever for a love that's true

Those boys tell me that it dosn't exist
Those boys tell me I'm wasteing time to wish
They havn't seen what I've seen
They havn't been where I've been
I live my own dream
I know what I believe
Certain someday I'll meet the love I'm living for

I can wait forever for a love that's true
I can wait forever for a love that's true

Those boys don't know me at all
Those boys can't tell a door from a wall
There's no explaining to them
I don't even attempt
I look in my heart and mind
And there inside I find
A love welcome and wide open waiting for me

I can wait forever for a love that's true
I can wait forever for a love that's true
I can wait forever for a love that's true
I can wait forever for a love that's true
Track Name: Not Enough Prozac
Not Enough Prozac
©2004 kimrea

I got this pain, it's in my head
It makes me feel like staying in bed
But I don't want to be that way
I got too much to do to be that way

And there's not enough prozac to go around
Not enough ups, and too many downs
What will we do when we all feel bad
What will we take when we all feel sad
Look out everybody when we all go mad

I'm battling the blues, they're in my mind
They follow me around all the time
But I don't want to feel that way
I can't count my blessings when I feel that way

And there's not enough prozac to go around
Not enough ups, and too many downs
What will we do when we all feel bad
What will we take when we all feel sad
Look out everybody when we all go mad

I wrestle with depression, it's in my brain
I chase it away, again and again
Cause I don't want to think that way
I know it does no good to think that way

And there's not enough prozac to go around
Not enough ups, and too many downs
What will we do when we all feel bad
What will we take when we all feel sad
Look out everybody when we all go mad
Track Name: So Long Gone
So Long Gone
©2004 Kimrea

It's dinner time in Texas
In Spain they're having breakfast
By the time that you get this message
I'll be so long gone

Off into the sunset
Adios, Farewell
No looking back, no regrets
I'm moving on

It's autumn down under
In Michigan it's summer
You don't have to wonder where I am
I'm so long gone

I'm so long gone I'm history
I'm so long gone, I'm just a memory
I'm so long gone, are you missing me?
I'm so long gone

It's so hot in Mexico
Indiana, cold and snow
I'm sure by now you know that I'm not there
I'm so long gone

I'm so long gone I'm history
I'm so long gone, I'm just a memory
I'm so long gone, are you missing me?
I'm so long gone

The world is waiting outside my door
Keep the motor running
I won't be coming round here anymore

I'm so long gone I'm history
I'm so long gone, I'm just a memory
I'm so long gone, are you missing me?
I'm so long gone
Track Name: Willie's Down
Willie's Down
©2004 Kimrea

Willie's down in the basement
His head between his knees
Willie's down in the basement
Out stone cold in a junkie sleep

Earlier this evening out on the street
I saw him underneath a lampost looking sharp and clean
Like he'd pulled himself together, straightened out his life
Now he's down there in the celler, folded like a pocket knife

Willie's down in the basement
His head between his knees
Willie's down in the basement
Out stone cold in a junkie sleep

Sitting upstairs in the window, I was watching the scene
Looking for the action, I could see most everything
There was dandy Willie strutting his stuff
Now he's crumpled like a car wreck, It's just so tough

Willie's down in the basement
His head between his knees
Willie's down in the basement
Out stone cold in a junkie sleep

I heard somebody shouting, get him out of here
Who let him in the door, you know he can't sleep there
Dump in in the alley, it's just another day
You know it's nothing personal, it always ends this way

Willie's down in the basement
His head between his knees
Willie's down in the basement
Out stone cold in a junkie sleep
Track Name: I Want To Be Zen
I Wanna Be Zen
©2004 kimrea

I wanna be Zen
Rise above the illusion
The ten thousand things
Only lead to confusion

Daily grind, overwhelming mind
Brings depression, when I wanna be zen

I wanna be Zen
Rise above the illusion
The ten thousand things
Only lead to confusion

Human pursuits, masquerade as truth
They deceive me, believe me, I wanna be zen

I wanna be Zen
Rise above the illusion
The ten thousand things
Only lead to confusion

I have desires, burning passionate fires
They consume me, pursue me, I wanna be zen

I wanna be Zen
Rise above the illusion
The ten thousand things
Only lead to confusion

I observe humanity, stress and insanity
Chasing money, it's not funny, I wanna be zen

I wanna be Zen
Rise above the illusion
The ten thousand things
Only lead to confusion
Track Name: Subversive Blues
Subversive Blues
©2004 kimrea

I am a subversive, folk rocking, blues rebel, love talking
peace dreaming, punk singing, soul sister, jazz troubadour
A subversive, folk rocking, blues rebel, love talking
peace dreaming, punk singing, soul sister, jazz troubadour
That's what I am

I am a throwback that's been thrown forward
Rolling like a snowball, picking up speed
Spreading like a wildfire, growing like a weed
Nothing can stop me, nothing can stop me
They're playing my music, they're singing my songs
And you will hear them echoing long after I am gone

I am a subversive, folk rocking, blues rebel, love talking
peace dreaming, punk singing, soul sister, jazz troubadour
A subversive, folk rocking, blues rebel, love talking
peace dreaming, punk singing, soul sister, jazz troubadour
That's what I am

I am the dreamer and I am the dream
Waking to the vision, walking the path
Present in the moment, rising from the past
Nothing can stop me, nothing can stop me
They're playing my music, they're singing my songs
And you will hear them echoing long after I am gone

I am a subversive, folk rocking, blues rebel, love talking
peace dreaming, punk singing, soul sister, jazz troubadour
A subversive, folk rocking, blues rebel, love talking
peace dreaming, punk singing, soul sister, jazz troubadour
That's what I am
