Track Name: Lipstick n' Rouge
Well you've never seen a girl like that
But she'll reel you in and throw you back
Cause she's seen her share of boys like you
And that's a guarantee

She'll put all her charms to use
With a string of pearls and high heeled shoes
When this lady's on the loose
The boys are at her feet

Yeah, I've seen what she can do
With a little bit of lipstick and rouge

Don't be fooled by her smile so sweet
The lady's cruel
And she'll leave you lonely too,
Holdin' nothin but some lipstick and rouge

Well there's honey drippin from her lips
And a touch of poison in her kiss
Just a little taste and you'll be caught up in her spell
She'll make a playground of your mind
Steal your heart and rob you blind
I've seen it oh, so many times
So heed the words I tell ya, boy

I've seen what she can do
With a little bit of lipstick and rouge

Don't be fooled by her smile so sweet
The lady's cruel
And she'll leave you lonely too,
Holdin' nothin but some lipstick and rouge
Track Name: Time of My Life
There's a sign in the old churchyard
Askin me if I know where I'm gonna go If I die tonight
Why would I wanna think about that right now?
I'm havin' the time of my life

I'm wakin' up in the arms of a stranger
Sometimes can't remember his name or mine
I'll just save all the savin' for later
Cause I'm havin' the time of my life

There's a message from my landlord
On the answering machine
Guess the rent's a few weeks late again
And he doesn't seem to happy with me
But there's no time to think about that right now
I'm havin' the time of my life

A pretty smile gets a drink from a stranger
We could end up at his place or mine
So I'll save all the details for later
Cause I'm havin' the time of my life

There's a letter from my mama
Lyin' on the kitchen table
Askin' me when I'll get sober
Askin' me when I'll get stable again
Well I don't wanna think about that right now
I'm havin' the time of my life

I'll find relief in the arms of a stranger
With no regard for his heart or mine
Well I may mourn my innocence later
But I'm havin' the time of my life

I'm wakin up in the arms of a stranger
Sometimes can't remember his name or mine
But I'll save all the savin' for later
Cause I'm havin' the time of my life
Track Name: Don't Cross the River, Jordan
Dont cross the river, Jordan,
'Cause mama needs you home
I've laid my head upon your bed
And cried since youve been gone
Dont cross the river, Jordan
Pawpaws called the Saints to pray
So were gathered at the shoreline
Beggin God for you to stay

Please dont leave sweet angel boy
Your time has not yet come
So rise from the water and with us stand
Till Jesus leads you on

Dont cross the river, Jordan
Mama bade you not to go
Where the waters carry farther
Then pull you down below
Dont cross the river, Jordan
Listen to your mamas voice
I've been callin from the shoreline
Callin to my angel boy

Oh please dont leave sweet angel boy
Your time has not yet come
So rise from the water and with us stand
Till Jesus leads you on

Dont cross the river, Jordan
Till you hear another call
From the Man who walked on water
And can carry you across
Dont cross the river, Jordan
But if you have to go
I'll be wavin from the shoreline
Prayin till youre safely home.
Track Name: If Only Tears
The whistle blew, the train was racin'
But no one knew It'd left the station
The warning lights had long been flashing
But no one saw till a crash brought us all to our knees

A load so heavy, a road so long
Should not be endured alone
It is for you these tears I shed
If only tears could raise our dead
If only tears could raise our dead

The siren sounded your disaster
Who held you up the morning after
I was not theere, I cold not hold you
But now this prayer and these tears are a small offering

A load so heavy, a road so long
Should not be endured alone
It is for you these tears I shed
If only tears could raise our dead
If only tears could raise our dead

The whistle blew, the train was racin'
But no one knew It'd left the station
The warning lights had long been flashing
But no one saw till a crash brought us all to our knees

My tears may never make you whole
But let them speak "you're not alone"
May your tears speak to Someone who
Longs to raise the dead in you
He longs to raise the dead you

My tears may never make you whole
But let them speak "you're not alone"
May your tears speak to Someone who
Longs to raise the dead in you
He longs to raise the dead you
Track Name: All is Right
Last night I saw you kiss her on the porch
I watched you from the window
Just before I turned my covers down
Now I can go to sleep and know
That everything is right
With the world, with the night
All is right.

I listen to you laugh outside my room
You're whispering your nothings,
And you don't think I can hear you
But when I go to sleep I know
That everything is right
With the world, with the night
All is right.

And I can rest my head upon
The thought of you still going strong
And I can dream of days I know will be
When a love like yours will find me

Tonight I watched you dancing in the dark
To music from a stereo you set beneath the stars
Now I can go to sleep and know
That everything is right
With the world, with the night
All is right.

All is right.
