Paying for Isolation

Even my tears, Even my tears, are tainted

Although my ties, Although my ties are true

Through all my fears, Through all my fears I fainted

And fell in love with you

Paying for isolation

Like a long cold winters blues

What a price for isolation

But they gave you all the clues

Your rough, wind blown face, rough, wind blown face had color

Your shoes, a  tattering blue

Your eyes, they twickled out a story

Paying for solitude…

Chorus

I turned and gazed, I turned and gazed, at a new painted face

Looked at new shoes; they had such flattering hues…

Your eyes though fleeting, told a story

Paying for solitude…,

From the benches to the Bread Box

The shock so greatly stark

And the difference came too quickly; for my mind to disembark

He had no place, He had no place, to lay His head

He ran a race, He ran a race of Love

The shoes He walked in; were a patterning

Of a Home that was from Above…

He was walking in isolation

Like a long, cold winters blues

What a price for isolation

He gave you all the clues….

The Dusty Shoes Blues

I said my peace, baby

Feel so good

Did all I could, baby

Done all I should

I gots to roll on

I gots to roll on…

Shake the dust off my dancin shoes

And roll on…

You may have won the battle, baby

But you lost the war

There’s a missing piece in the puzzle, baby

My heart’s on the floor…

I gots to roll on

I gots to roll on…

Shake the dust off my dancin shoes

And roll on…

I got my release, baby

You threw me out the door

There’s no way back in, baby

There’s a damper in this rapport

I gots to roll on

I gots to roll on…

Shake the dust off my dancin shoes

And roll on…

No Qualms

No Qualms

I see you now

You are very beautiful.

It was beyond my sight… Till I looked into your eyes…

And I deserve to be here…

To stand upon this mountain top

See the lines that carve my face

They’re perfect in every way…

Pretty petals falling down

All around my sweet, sweet soul

Like lashes to my cries

You are my one desire

I deserve to be here…

To stand upon this mountain top

See the lines that carve my face

They’re perfect in every way

In this rugged mountain climb

I am running in first gear

I need no other years

To soothe this aftertime…

I deserve to be here…

To stand upon this mountain top

See the lines that carve my face

They’re perfect in every way
