Track Name: Cool Enough for You
Torn jeans faded blue, t-shirt stuck on like glue
cool enough for you, cool enough for you
at 21 you were the one, I was 18 and chasin' fun
but not cool enough for you, cool enough for you
I never caught your eye
those daisy dukes she was wearing set fire to her thigh
yet cool enough for you, cool enough for you
that warm summer dream I had in my heart was not
cool enough for you

Years pass, jean gray, you down a cold one in the early day
cool enough for you, cool enough for you
warmth left your fingertips from those cigarettes that met your lips
cool enough for you, cool enough for you
How could I be so blind, there's no findin' gold when the veins that are mined, are cool enough for you, cool enough for you
that warm summer dream I had in my heart was not
cool enough for you

The sight of you there shows what no one denies
you're smokin' a pack of lies
frozen to that stool with bloodshot eyes

Torn jeans faded blue, t-shirt stuck on like glue
cool enough for you, cool enough for you
at 21 you were the one, I was eighteen and chasin' fun
but not cool enough for you, cool enough for you

So here's to the dream that died
I've got a warm car waiting, in a blizzard outside
Cool enough for you, cool enough for you
that warm summer dream I had in my heart was not
cool enough for you
Track Name: Love Came Round
When you left, you took me by surprise, had no idea
how I'd agonize
could you have, at least apologized
love came round again, love is such a friend
love came round again, oooooh

I put my nose, to the grindstone, I wore my skin
right down to the bone
but its no use, when you're all alone
love came round again, love is such a friend
love came round again, oooooh

Now I've made, a brand new start and I have found
the sweetest of sweethearts
but the game of love, is such an art
love came round again, love is such a friend
love came round again, oooooh
love came round again, love came round again
love came round again
Track Name: End of the Day
He's getting his coat, its been a long day
curses at the computer, it didn't shut down the right way
He's got dinner waiting for him at home
his wife just called on the cell phone
and I turn to him and and say
It's the end of the day, It's the end of the day
I'm tired to the bone and I don't have much to say
It's the end of the day

He plays the guitar, nostolgic look in his eye
the song he's playing makes him think about years gone by
He longs for the times back in the city
Livin' up with the love of his life
when they were young and giddy
and he turns to me and says
It's the end of the day, It's the end of the day
I'm tired to the bone and I don't have much to say
It's the end of the day

So no one ever told me, that it'd be this way
feeling so much older
need to break away

I walk thru the door, with the unopened mail
dog is swirling around me wagging her tail
I pour myself a great big glass of wine
think about the fleeting days and the divine
and I turn to God and say
It's the end of the day, It's the end of the day
I'm tired to the bone and I don't have much to say
It's the end of the day
It's the end of day
It's the end of the day
ooooooohh
He's getting his coat, it's been a long day
Track Name: Saint George's Lake
Life on a Lake
In a dream or awake
One day at a time
you don't get very far

Life on a Lake
is no life at all
Never know where you're going
Never care where you've been

When I was a girl
Let my mind drift away
The wind and the water
Pulled me in deep

Come on let's go down to
Saint George's Lake
We'll lie down by the shore and
take a break

My dear old Mom
My poor old Dad
I'm a lot like them
Holding on to what I had

Come on let's go down to
Saint George's Lake
We'll lie down by the shore and
take a break
Track Name: Fire and Rain
Just yesterday morning, they let me know that you were gone.
Suzanne, the plans they made put an end to you.
I walked out this morning and I wrote down this song,
I just can't remember who to send it to.

I've seen fire and I've seen rain.
I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end.
I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend,
But I always thought that I'd see you again.

Won't you look down upon me, Jesus,
You've got to help me make a stand.
You've just got to see me through another day.
My body's aching and my time is at hand
wouldn't make it any other way.

Oh, I've seen fire and I've seen rain.
I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end.
I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend,
But I always thought that I'd see you again.

Been walking my mind to an easy time, my back turned towards the sun.
Lord knows when the cold wind blows it'll turn your head around.
Well, there's hours of time on the telephone line to talk about things to come.
Sweet dreams and flying machines in pieces on the ground.

Oh, I've seen fire and I've seen rain.
I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end.
I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend,
But I always thought that I'd see you baby, one more time again, now.

Thought I'd see you one more time again.
There's just a few things coming my way this time around, now.
Thought I'd see you, thought I'd see you, fire and rain, now.
