all about you
(mark evans / pat robinson)

5 o’clock this morning, I’m already out of bed
Got no time for dreaming when I can think about you instead
Grab a cup of coffee
Pick up my guitar and try to write a song
All about you
The things that you do make a believer out of me
Changing my life, God it feels right
From now on every song I sing is all about you
Drive around for hours
Trying to think of simple words to dignify these things that I feel
Girl you got the power
To take this cartoon life, dress it down and make it real
Talking to a good friend
Every conversation finds a way to be
All about you
The things that you do make a believer out of me
Changing my life, God it feels right
From now on every song I sing is all about you
It’s all about the way you sing
The words, the tune, the harmony
A simple song that makes it plain to see- You’re part of me
It’s all about you
The things that you do make a believer out of me
Changing my life, God it feels right
From now on every song I sing is all about you

QUICKSAND
(mark evans)
Swiftly we rise
Slowly we fall
Comes as no surprise after all
Making our way, humbled and dazed
Never understand…
We forgot how to love, lost faith in heaven above
This wasn’t planned
We got lost on the road, came home with nothing to show
Now we stand
Hearts like Quicksand
There is no prize, here in the Garden of Lies
Anger and Lust, Return to dust
Up on that hill you’re waiting still
Blood on our hands
Hearts like Quicksand
We forgot how to love, lost faith in heaven above
This wasn’t planned
We got lost, we let go, woke up with no one to hold
Now we stand
Hearts like Quicksand
Everything’s coming apart
Drifting alone in the dark
Open your eyes, open your arms

We forgot how to love, lost faith in heaven above
This wasn’t planned
We got lost on the road, woke up with no one to hold
It’s in your hands
We were lost, now we know
Without love we’ll never get home
Here we stand, now we stand, still we stand
Hearts like Quicksand

tearing down our house
(mark evans / pat robinson)
I told you I was wrong
This child’s old enough to roll on
Don’t matter now, you left without a sound
I’m told the only roads lead out of town
Everybody knows
You’re tearing down our house
Everyone’s a stranger sometimes
and I’m not the one turning water into wine
Can’t find the reasons when there aint’ no rhyme
You never meant it, so go on home now
No need to stick around to watch this house coming down
Go on and leave
We’re over now
The world was calling you sometime ago…
Now everyone knows
You’re tearing down our house
There’s a locust in the hall
Laughing at our love
Nothing here but wood, glass, nails and stone…
This aint no home, I’m all alone
For cryin out loud,
You’re tearing down our house
Go on and leave
We’re over now
The world was calling you
You had to go
Now everyone knows
You’re tearing down our house

COUNTRY GIRL (SHE LOVES COUNTRY MUSIC)
(mark evans)
She’s not an actress, no
Never been in a fashion show
But that girl can dozy-doe
And that’s all right with me
No brother she aint impressed
With your wallet and the people you met
She traded in that designer dress
For a comfy pair of jeans
And she prays night and day…
She loves country music playing loud on the radio
Fast cars, dancing slow, her family and the rodeo
Starry nights, Jesus Christ, her tea on ice and the lights down low
No my heart aint touched the ground
Since that country girl hit town
Big city life’s so cold
In the scramble for the pot of gold
People trading in heart and soul
For a double dose of green
Some forget what’s right and wrong
When they’re living where they don’t belong
But she’s got a faith that’s strong
It’s everything to me
And I pray that girl will stay…
She loves country music playing loud on the radio
Fast cars, dancing slow, her family and the rodeo
Starry nights, Jesus Christ, her tea on ice and the lights down low
No my heart aint touched the ground
Since that country girl hit town
Aint no mystery
She gives me life, she helps me see
The good in the bad, the happy in the sad
This feeling can’t be wrong, though it aint been long
And I’ll never be the same
Since I met that country girl
She loves country music playing loud on the radio
Fast cars, dancing slow, her family and the rodeo
Starry nights, Jesus Christ, her tea on ice and the lights down low
She loves country music

no way
(mark evans)
On the other side of midnight she’s collecting my thoughts in bouquets
While I’m holding my fears before the light
On the other side of me
On the other side of circumstance
She’s walking away from the crowd
I’m lying in bed
Thinking that I think she said she loved me
No, I don’t know her…
Now I’m, feeling every breath
Strange dreams accompany my pen
Riding subways down forgotten tracks
Thinking that I maybe want her back
Rescue me
I nearly believed every word she didn’t say
No way…
Gonna get out of this parking lot
Get back into shape
Summer’s long gone and winter’s only halfway born
I’m in trouble here again
Rescue me
I nearly believed every word she didn’t say
No way…
No, I don’t know her…

CAUGHT IN THE RAIN
(mark evans / pat robinson)
On the road again
Somewhere between now and then
I lost sight of all my dreams
If there’s one thing I’d give my eyes to see
It’s the sight of you right here next to me
Caught in the rain, the snow in Omaha
On this lonesome road to Tennessee
Darkness falls, stranded in Illinois
Oh sweet darling, wish you were here with me
Don’t know how I got this low
Tales of fame and fortune called me from our home
A beggar’s share was more than I could hold
I sold my soul and now I’m here alone
Caught in the rain, the snow in Omaha
On this lonesome road to Tennessee
Darkness falls, stranded in Illinois
Oh sweet darling, wish you were here with me
No I never felt so lost and all alone
If only I could hear your voice, I’d say that I was wrong
Caught in the rain, the snow in Omaha
On this lonesome road to Tennessee
Darkness falls, stranded in Illinois
Oh sweet darling, wish you were here with me

ON PATRIARCH’S POND
(mark evans / amanda kravat)

How do you breathe?
Inside your cemetery theme park,
The water’s deep enough…
Conceal the truth
I was a child
You were some street survivor seeking fame
Now I can’t even speak your name without regret
What makes you treat me like you do?
What keeps me crawling back to you?
Can I come home tonight?
Remember me?
Forget me, now that I’ve become the past
Forget the truth
The truth is nothing lasts
Incestuous fool
Castrate me, for the things you’ll never feel
Your life’s a well of tears
And I don’t want to cry
What makes you treat me like you do?
What keeps me crawling back to you?
Can I come home tonight?
Can I come home to die?
Can I come home?

Till the End of Time
(mark evans / pat robinson)
Real love ain’t no house on fire
But love burns longer than desire
Love is hope, love is faith
Love is calm and love is grace
Love is yours and mine
Till the end of time
Love is an easy thing
When truth is the song you sing
Love can grow on and on
Love turns weak hearts into strong
Love is yours and mine
Till the end of time
We can make it baby, forever and a day
No matter what this world throws on us
We’ll still find our way
Love ain’t no shooting star
Love is slow
Love is true
Love is me and love is you
Love is yours and mine
Till the end of time

the trouble song
(mark evans)
Dixie wants me back, she’s married now to john
I tell her face the facts, this can’t be going on
Oh baby, there’s trouble all over this town

Tammy’s on the phone, she heard that I love you,
Now she’s lovin me, oh what’s a boy to do?
Aw baby, there’s trouble all over this town
Trouble to my left, Trouble to my right
Trouble in the morning, Trouble every night
Trouble from the east, Trouble from the west
Trouble in the worst way, Trouble in the best…
No one had the time for me when I was free
But now that I found you, they’re comin out the weeds
Seems lately, there’s trouble all over this town

No one come around, when I was sad and free
But now that I found you, these girls won’t let me be
Seems lately, there’s trouble all over this town
Trouble to my left, Trouble to my right
Trouble every morning, noon, and night
Trouble from the east, Trouble from the west
Trouble in the worst way, Trouble in the best…
Mary Lou dropped by to say she saw your ring
Thinks that we should celebrate
Now what do you think that means?
I think maybe…
There’s trouble all over this town

OVER
(mark evans)

Talking to myself again
Praying for this pain to end
There ain’t no getting over it

Help me break the spell again
I been dancing with your silhouette
And I don’t believe I’m over it
No I don’t believe I’m over it
No I don’t believe…

(mark evans)
Never once faced a problem a healthy dose of faith couldn’t fix
But none of them words in that great big book can help me find my way out of this
Aint gonna bore you with no details, my life’s become a country song
My truck’s up at auction
I can’t find no job
My wife’s advertising on match dot com
Remember when Daddy told me, “son you gotta carry that weight”
Here I stand with the weight of the world and I know that levy’s fixin to break
Killin time, the unemployment line, waitin on the judgment day
My truck’s up at auction
I can’t find no job
My wife’s advertising on match dot com
Sugar and spice, naughty and nice, that’s what her headline says
We ain’t divorced, a detail of course, you can drive this baby today
No long moral to the story, I tell ya when it rains it hails
My truck’s up at auction
I can’t find no job
My wife’s advertising on match dot com
Sugar and spice, naughty and nice, that’s what her headline says
Like that ’98 Ford he can’t afford, you can drive this baby today
Don’t go talkin ‘bout heaven, can’t ya see my life’s goin to hell
My truck’s up at auction
I can’t find no job
My wife’s advertising on match dot com
