My Little Queenie (Michael McAdam) from my second story window, looking down on city park she crossed the street at Laurel, by the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart as a band played Little Queenie, out of tune but really loud she crisscrossed at the fountain, and disappeared into the crowd oh, my little queenie, i was just too young to understand oh, my little queenie, i watched you slip right through my hands she was last seen in Sedona, making turquoise jewelry there with her little dog named Bijou, at the Verde Valley Fair well, you can sit all day and wonder, why things don't turn out like they're planned how the best laid dreams can vanish, like little castles in the sand oh, my little queenie, i was just too young to understand oh, my little queenie, i watched you slip between my hands

A Northern Girl (Michael McAdam) she made her way on the southbound train with little Richie on her knee leaving behind the slippery streets, where you don't get a pedigree they judge her by the clothes she wears how loud she laughs and the way she swears she's a northern girl where she comes from, they just don't see things that way a northern girl she warms the nights and illuminates every day back in the day they built boats and ships, her daddy worked down by the shore a pauper's wage and a place to fall, but they don't build shit anymore she only did what she had to do she took the train, little Richie too (chorus) she loves me with her heart and hand she has my back, and she understands, yeah, yeah, yeah she made her way on the southbound train with little Richard on her knee leaving behind the dingle streets, where you won't pedigree they judge her by the clothes she wears how loud she laughs and the way she swears she's a northern girl where she come from, they just don't see things that way a northern girl, she warms the nights and illuminates every day she's a northern girl

Venus 04:20
Venus (Jana Light) love drunk minstrel waiting for his lover by the back stairs poised to make a brand-new impression, so he shaved his face and cut his hair he'll call to mind the days she never left his side, not for one minute and you don't know just how love is gonna go, 'til you're stuck in it feels like venus lost her desire it's as if phoenix put out his fire hey now, now what am i gonna do when I can't be me without you if i was a rich man I'd build a temple to show my grief and if i was a fine painter, I would paint you here with me now you may be a bothered little butterfly, trying hard to unfold your wings but i wasn't ready for that small dark place, wasn't ready for you to leave (chorus) these love forsaken summer nights are sinking in and i'm gonna walk this lonesome valley all by myself once again i guess i'll live my life a sinner 'til we're lying 'neath the cherry tree when you get to the land of milk and honey throw a little down to me (chorus) feels like flowers forgot to bloom seems like sky's gone missing blue hey now, now, how will i make it through when I can't be me, without you

Hand on the Trigger (Michael McAdam and James Davey Eggleston) take my hand, hold on tight save your breath and it'll be alright you got your gaze under the gun now we'll drive west, through the setting sun you got your hand on the trigger, got your hand on the trigger got your hand on the trigger, it's only up to you now what you gonna do? you kicked and burned, and you screamed inside and they fed you lies so long and bled you dry now the highway key is in your hand make your move right now and baby make your stand got your hand on the trigger, got your hand on the trigger got your hand on the trigger, it's only up to you and if your aim is true

I'm Free 02:58

Little Places (Michael McAdam) when i was young this was the country we used to cruise out here at night and drink beer milk cows, barns and mules and tractors was all you ever saw back when the farmers lived here now SUVs all line the highway and i could barely believe my own eyes big swimming pools and shiny mansions why would someone ever need a house near that size when love lives in little places and grows stronger most every day in nooks and crannies and open spaces in Volkswagens and Chevrolets now i used to dream of fame and fortune but here lately my desires are few i finally listened when someone showed me love is all you need, and I believe that it's true 'cause love lives in little places and grows stronger most every day in nooks and crannies and open spaces in Volkswagens and Chevrolets

Allentown 03:49
Allentown (Michael McAdam) as she tiptoed out the door, he was passed out on the floor she'd packed it up, and almost changed her mind she'll be three or four states gone when he curses the alarm but she's pointed south on highway 309 now it's the last time she crosses the Lehigh county line and they'll all cut their losses when she leaves it all behind 'cause he used her up when he'd get jacked up and he kicked her when she's down and she won't be going back to Allentown from the Pennsylvania hills to just past Jacksonville she’s tired, scared but twenty four and free but his MasterCard she found, now she won't be slowing down 'til she gets to where the highway meets the sea and it's the last time she crosses the Lehigh county line and they'll all cut their losses when she leaves it all behind and she'll make her stand, ashes to the sand, in this paradise she's found and she's never going back to allentown and it's the last time she crosses monroe county line and they all cut their losses when she left it all behind but she'll make her stand, ashes to the sand, in this paradise she's found and she won't be going back no more she won't be going back for sure she's never going back to allentown
