Vonda Morris The instrumental introduction perfectly sets up the listener to beckon for more. The soft, mellow vibe with which this song begins is so charming one can't resist dancing and singing along with Beth and Bradford. Great visualizations were inspired by the creative word choice throughout the lyrics. They "sing the melody so soft and fair" before Bradford's gritty switch raises the intensity of the lyrics in the song's climax, demonstrating the versatility of the musicians' unique abilities. Favorite track: Come Dance With Me.

Come Dance With Me "Lay your head down against your pillow, close your eyes and dream Can you hear the wind whistling through the willows swaying in time with the reeds?” Twelve princesses their skirts spinning through the air Singing a melody so sweet and fair Come dance with me, come on and dance with me All along the shores of the great Black Sea I've put on my dancing shoes my ruby red dancing shoes Come dance with me while we're still young and free The water of the sea is calm, the sky is brilliant blue And everywhere that you can see are treasures just for you So turn the stones of red aside, and under you will find Flowers, diamonds, wriggling worms and treasures bona fide Come dance with me, come on and dance with me All along the shores of the great Black Sea I've put on my dancing shoes my ruby red dancing shoes Come dance with me while we're still young and free while we're still young and free Twelve princesses their skirts spinning through the air Singing a melody so sweet and fair, singing a melody so sweet and fair Come dance with me, come on and dance with me All along the shores of the great Black Sea I've put on my dancing shoes my ruby red dancing shoes Come dance with me while we're still young and free While we're still young and free © Bradford Loomis Music 2013

Banner Days I might be a poor mans son but I, I've got love running rich in my blood I may seem to be worse for the wear, But our, our banner days are here I'm here to take you home, I Sold everything I own I, I may never have much to my name Oh but I'll give you everything I might be a sailor’s daughter Just as easy to tame as the water I may be more ruddy than fair But our, our banner days are here I'm here to take you home, I Sold everything I own I, I may never have much to my name Oh but I'll give you everything You know that I’ll give you everything Might get tough, Could get crazy You, you, me and our pockets of empty But we're alive and it might as well be that, our Our Banner Days are here Our Banner Days are here, Our Banner Days are here, Our Banner Days are Oh Take you home, I’ll take you home, take you home © Beth Whitney Music & Bradford Loomis Music 2013

From Dust to Dust All the slings and stones of old, untended fires fade to coals When the lights go down, and we lay our separate ways All my fears and doubts form the words I never say I don’t want to give you up I don’t want to let you down I don’t want to bury us in hallowed ground I don’t want to hurt you anymore; I don’t want to close this door I just want to fight for us like we did before I remember the way it was, there was a gleam in your eyes when you spoke of us The mornings came, and you used to touch my face But I wake up now to a stranger in your place I don’t want to give you up I don’t want to let you down I don’t want to bury us in hallowed ground I don’t want to hurt you anymore; I don’t want to close this door I just want to fight for us like we did before Whatever we’ve lost, I won’t give you up The wounds that we’ve caused, I won’t give you up Whatever the cost, I won’t give up From dust to dust, to dust I don’t want to give you up I don’t want to let you down I don’t want to bury us in hallowed ground I don’t want to hurt you anymore; I don’t want to close this door I just want to fight for us like we did before I don’t want to hurt you anymore; I don’t want to close this door I just want to fight for us like we did before © Beth Whitney Music & Bradford Loomis Music 2013

Song In My Head Some carry sorrow like a hole in the shoe Or like a barrel of ashes or a table of food Some carry sorrow like a blanket of lead But I tell ya- I carry mine like a song in my head And it goes- Hey na na na hey now Hey na na na hey Hey na na na hey now Hey na na na hey Some carry love like a circus parade Or like a wrecking ball or mamas fresh lemonade Some carry love like a rose on the bed But I tell ya- I carry mine like a song in my head And it goes- Hey na na na hey now Hey na na na hey Hey na na na hey now Hey na na na hey Some people tremble at the shake of a storm Others they crawl back in bed Some people crumble and lie in a heap But me I splash around to the song.....in my head Oooooo Oooooo-aaahhh And it goes- Hey na na na hey now Hey na na na hey Hey na na na hey now Hey na na na hey Some people sleep like a bowling ball, others as light as the air Some people sleep like there ain’t nothing wrong But me I, I fall asleep to a song in my head © Beth Whitney Music 2013

Brother 03:41
Brother O I went off to see my brother Went off to mumble at his grave his humbling grave Thought I would say hello Maybe stay awhile and watch as the roses unfold But the quiets got me thinkin' I've nowhere to go Said oh brother can ya hear me none Oh brother where ya gone Oh I went off to see my brother Brush the dust off from his grave, his weathered grave Told him of a dream I’d had, how it’s cold and broken in my hands, these clumsy hands How I'm supposed to be the livin But I'm dying instead Said oh brother can ya hear me none Oh brother where ya gone Oh brother where ya gone? It's been a while, it's been too long Oh brother where ya gone? It's been a while, it's been too long O Brother, meet my son Will he be like you, will he be strong Brother, come meet my son Will he be like you, will he be strong O Brother, O Brother where you gone it's been too long O Brother, O Brother where you gone it's been too long O Brother, where you gone It's been a while, it's been too long O Brother, where you gone It's been a while, it's been too long © Beth Whitney Music 2013

Wanted Man 04:02
Wanted Man I'm a wanted man; I've held the weight of life in these hands I've lived a thousand lives, I'll live a thousand more 'fore I die I held you, you're the breath against my neck (Come to me and rest your head) Just the thought of you brings an aching in my chest (Aching in my chest) That won't relent, that won't relent I'm a wanted man, I've held the weight of life in the hands I've told a thousand lies, I'll tell a thousand more 'fore I die Oh to hold you, you're a lover’s sweet caress (Come to me and lay your head) I long for you but I will never be (I need you, oh I need you) The man you need, the man you need Come to me, won't you come to me Come to me, won't you come to me I’ll never stop running, I won’t stop running to you I'm a wanted man; I've held the weight of life in these hands I've lived a thousand lives, I'll live a thousand more 'fore I die © Bradford Loomis Music 2013
