Track Name: Modern Day Healer
Sometimes this crazy world of mine spins my head around
And it seems to take all the strength i can find
Just to keep both feet on the ground
And it’s head over heels and i’m going out of my mind
And i’m always running but i’m always running behind

And for forty straight every week i do what i do best
But even when i’m at my peak nobody seems impressed
And it makes a man wonder about the ladder he’s trying to climb
Where he’s always running but he’s always running behind

Chorus:
Then she whispers to me in the language of a kiss
Words my heart understands
And the worries and troubles of my days long past
Melt with one brush of her hand
Like a mid summer rain giving life
To a dry and dusty land
She’s a modern day healer all’s well with one touch of her hand
She’s a modern day healer all’s well with one touch of her hand

Was it just good luck or maybe good fortune
Or maybe our stars were aligned
But you always seem to do the impossible, showing me wonders and signs
And it seems kind of crazy the thought that i might find
A path so straight to the doorway of love,
While the rest of my life unwinds

Now the dawn is gaining the upper hand
In it’s struggle against the night
So i rise and draw the curtains shut trying to hold back the light
But my alarm clock is ringing telling me rise and shine
And i’m always running but i’m always running behind

Chorus:
Then she whispers to me in the language of a kiss
Words my heart understands
And the worries and troubles of my day far ahead
Melt with one brush of her hand
Like a midsummer rain giving life to a dry and dusty land
She’s a modern day healer all’s well with one touch of her hand
She’s a modern day healer, she’s my modern day healer
All’s well with one touch of her hand
Track Name: Whisper my name
I feel your breath on my skin
I’d fight my heart
But it always finds a way to win
A million miles a minute
My heart it races into the night
Going going gone, till it’s
Gone from sight- till it’s gone from sight

And oh it’s possible
To be lonely for too long
Then it finally hits you,
Something’s been terribly wrong
You finally wake up to
What it is that your heart’s been missing
The softness of a woman’s touch
And a gentle lover’s kissing

Chorus:
So i go down, i go down on my knees
And i thank the lord above
That he brought your love to me
Then you wrap your loving arms around me,
And i’ll gladly do the same
The sweetest sound i ever heard
Was you whisper my name, whisper my name

And it comes on strong
Like a raging locomotive
Never giving rhyme or reason,
And it doesn’t leave a motive
From out of the clear blue summer sky
It pierces into your soul
Leaving only a burning desire,
That you’ve never known before
That you’ve never known before

But in all of it’s splendor
And in all of it’s might
There’s another side of love
That you share with me tonight
Outside the silence is only broken
By the sound of the falling rain
But inside your arms it’s safe and warm,
And you whisper my name
Whisper my name
Track Name: Calm of the storm
Chicken little warned me
The sky is falling,
So you better run and hide
The weather man told me
The storm is coming,
So you better get inside
Better board up the windows
Better lock the doors,
Wrap up in a blanket to keep warm
Go down to the cellar,
Crawl under your bed
And wait for the calm of the storm,
Wait for the calm of the storm
Chorus:
For the calm of the storm
Can bring such sweet relief
The damage is done
And you pick up the pieces
And you move along move along
There’s nothing to see
You move along move along
There’s nothing to see
You move along move along
There’s nothing to see,
Nothing to look at-there’s
Nothing left for me

The storm clouds rolled in the sky opened up
And the rains began to fall
The river began to rise
And overflowed it’s banks
Into a sleeping town so small
The river had turned to mud,
And flowed through the town
Burying houses where they stood
Scrambling to get out alive,
Running for higher ground
Taking only what they could,
Taking only what they could
