Wawona Morning
(Susan Cowsill, Russ Broussard)
Lead Singer: Susan

We sit in the same space
I listen to your face
And smile cuz we know, we know each other well
Weíre all the same faces
In so many places
While weíre all laughing, the miles they are gone
I donít even know you
But you I are still owe
Some love and respect for just being alive
We laugh the same laugher
We cry the same tears
So why all the heartache for so many years

Palm of My Hand
(Susan Cowsill, Russ Broussard)
Lead Singer: Susan

I was willing to fight
I was willing to ride into the night
I knew it was out there somewhere
And I would find it
In The Palm of My Hand

So I traveled for years
Far away on the river filled with tears
And every drop was salt that stung my heart

I was gone for so long
I grew older and older made me strong
Nothing can stop me now
And it never could anyhow

The Palm of My Hand
The Palm of My Hand
Thatís where we will land
After spinning around, outside
The Palm of My Hand

Iíve been racing the time with the winters that come and go
Looking into the eyes of the strangers I used to know
Long ago in my mind
All of this time

Ah Ah Ah Ah Palm

Now itís time to go home (Tired of living alone)
Tired of living alone
Youíll be there cuz youíve been there all along
Youíll never guess what I found
After searching this whole world round
The Palm of My Hand
The Palm of My Hand

Thatís where we will end
After spinning around, outside
The Palm of My Hand

The Palm of My Hand
Thatís where we will stand
After spinning around, outside
The Palm of My Hand
The Palm of My Hand
The Palm of My Hand
The Palm of My Hand

Chirstmas Time
(Susan Cowsill)
Lead Singer: Susan

Where ever I am
Where ever I stand
Itís my secret hiding place

Where ever you are
No matter how far you
You wind up inside my space

And I donít think I care too much
Just what it is you see
I only know youíre looking straight through me

And here in the dark
Words broken apart
I paint by numbers on my face

Which one for the day
Wonít give it away
But you see deep inside my heart

Iím not the only one, you say
Who's painted black and blue
Theyíre not the only colors we can choose
We can choose

(Ahs)

Right now for today
Iíll stay where I stay
Just leave your number on my wall

Cuz itís Christmas Time
And thatís when Iíll fine
And I will think about it in the fall

Today Iím painting in the sky
All the colors that you see
Maybe Iíll paint a few inside for me
Just for me

(Ahs)

Just Believe It
(Susan Cowsill)
Lead Singer: Susan

Well I was thinkiní about it on the way back home
The big old boulder has become a stone
And Iím still traveling around lifeís bend
In no hurry to get to the end, are you?

Well I clean my windows, now the streaks are gone
And I can see for miles, not a road too long
So packed my bags, give em' all away
Well Iím sorry but I can not stay
Itís true, Iím movin' through.

And the stars tracking us all (or on) the way
Things are changing here everyday
Iím OK and the sky is still blue
The way I see it we make a choice
Take or leave it, canít you see it?
Tell me now what are you gonna do?
Well want to see it, donít you?

Well I was thinkiní about it just the other night
That big old anchor has become a kite
Iím easiní back while it flies away
I donít even hold that string today
Itís true, Iím sailing through

And the stars tracking us all the way
Things are changing here every day
Iím OK and the sky is still blue
The way I see it we make a choice
Take or leave it, just believe it
Tell me now what are you gonna do?
Well, I want to believe it, donít you?

You canít stop sun, and you canít stop trees
You canít stop rain, and you canít stop me

(Heyís)

Well I was thinkiní about it and I have to say
I am still not sure just how I lost my way
But all the same Iím not turniní back
These are better days, I wonít give them back
Would you, well youíd be a fool

And the stars tracking us all the way
Things are changing it every day
Iím OK and the sky is still blue
The way I see it we make a choice
Take or leave it, just believe it?
Tell me now what are you gonna do?
Well I want to see it, donít you?
And Iím gonna believe it, wonít you?
I want to believe it, donít you?

And the stars are tracking us all the way
And things are changing it every day
Humm, ummm, ummm umm
Humm, ummm, ummm umm)

I Know You Know
(Susan Cowsill)
Lead Singer: Susan

Isnít this a perfect day
Everybody let me change lanes on the freeway
And I can smell the sugar in the air
My head is spinning and I hear the music everywhere

I know you know just what Iím talking about
And itís familiar to you
If you remember what we can't live without
Then weíll finally all dream the same dream

Isnít this a perfect night
I can hear the thunder cracking over every streetlight
And all my friends are dancing in the street
We love t talk about it, think about it
Itís the real thing

I know you know just what Iím talking about
And itís familiar to you
If you remember what we can't live without
Then weíll finally all dream the same dream

And if youíre lost and you donít understand
Donít you worry baby
Take my hand
Iíll lead you to the promise land

Isnít this the perfect day
Everybody let me change lanes on the freeway

I know you know just what Iím talking about
And itís familiar to you
If you remember what we can't live without
Then weíll finally all dream the

I know you know just what Iím talking about
And itís familiar to you
If you remember what we can't live without
Then weíll finally all dream the same dream, yeah

Well I had a dream (All you need is love, all you need is love)
Calling out around the world (All you need is love, all you need is love)
(All you need is love, all you need is love, all you need is love)
Love is all you need, Love is all you need

Wawona Afternoon
(Susan Cowsill, Russ Broussard, M Meaux)
Lead Singer: Susan

Je suis tout seul
Loin de ma Coeur
Sans mon coeur
Je suis loin de ma maison

Ma seule petit
Parti a la guerre
Sans ma petit
Il n'y a pas de ma maison

Iím all alone
Far from my heart
And without my heart
Iím far from home

My only child
Has gone to war
And without my child
There is no home

Nanny's Song
(Susan Cowsill, M Prejean)
Lead Singer: Susan

You fell in love across the backyard fence
You read your books behind closed doors
You lived and loved with some regrets
ďIíd do it all again,Ē she said

And as I turned around to go
I heard her singing sweet and low

Oho Oho I donít want to leave this earth
Oho Oho I donít want to let it go

You played the game, you played to win
You watched the game become a war
Now heís fighting hard, he fights to live
And now theyíre beating down his door

And when I ask hereís what he told
I want to see my son grow old

Oho Oho I donít want to leave this earth
Oho Oho I donít want to let it go
Oho Oho I donít want to leave this earth

With all the endless summer days
Watching winter while it fades
Autumnís sunlight through the trees
The scent of springtime on the breeze
Itís real life that sets you free
Can I take it all with me?

Watching babies while they sleep
Chasing fireflies through the streets
Sleeping under star filled skies
That moment real love arrives
Itís not as if I didnít know
That Iíd have to let you go

Now I was born with a broken heart
Itís not a pretty way to start
And deep down inside I always knew one thing
Beautiful joy my life would be

And when itís my time to go
Youíll hear me singing sweet and low

Oho Oho I donít want to leave this earth
Oho Oho I donít want to let it go
Oho Oho I donít want to leave this earth
No I donít want to leave this earth

Who Knows Where the Time Goes
(Sandy Denny)
Lead Singer: Susan

Across the evening sky
All the birds are leaving
But how can they know
Itís time for them to go
For the winter fire
I will still be dreaming
I have no thought of time

For who knows where the time goes
Well who knows where the time goes
Ohhh

On a sad, deserted shore
The fickle friends are leaving
Oh but how are they to know
Itís time for them to go
Well I will still be here
I have no thought of leaving
I do not count the time

And who knows where the time goes
Well who knows where the time goes

And I am not alone
While my love is near me
And I know it will be so
Until itís time to go
But come the storms of winter
And then the birds in spring again
I have no fear of time

And who knows how my love grows
Well who knows where the time goes

Gazebo
(Susan Cowsill)
Lead Singer: Susan

Well my relationship with you
Is like a dream that I once had
These flashes in my mind
Are some home movie, but theyíre mine

And I keep on losing track of you
Itís always been that way
We were never really on a track
Just a train that ran away

And I am not too sure at all
That I am comfortable this way
And then again Iím not so sure
Itís not the other way

Around, around the years roll by
Some times I get a ring
But the only time I see your face
Is when you want me to sing

And it was so fun
And it was so good
And I felt so safe
Under my red hood
Take a walk on my lawn
This is my gazebo
Itís the end of the reel
What an excellent show

If I sit quiet in the green room
And do your dishes every day
Stay out of your secret closets
Where you always went to play
And Iíve seen your monkey shaken
In itís cage as you walk by
Just thinking about the old house
Always seem to make you cry

And it was so fun
And it was so good
And I felt so safe
Under my red hood
Take a walk on my lawn
This is my gazebo
Itís the end of the reel
What an excellent show

I will never tell on you
Say I can stay at least till Christmas Day

And it was so fun
And it was so good
And I felt so safe
Under my red hood
Take a walk on my lawn
This is my gazebo
Itís the end of the reel
What an excellent show

Cuz it was so fun
And it was so good
And I felt so safe
Under my red hood
Take a walk on my lawn
This is my gazebo
Itís the end of the reel
What an excellent show

I will never tell on you
Say I can stay at least till Christmas Day

Talkin'
(Susan Cowsill)

I hear you lost your new girlfriend
Well Iím sorry for you
Did she get sick of you talking about me
Well Iím sick of it too

You should try volunteering
A new hobby or two
Maybe taking up knitting
Cuz spinning yarn is what you do

Youíre talkingí s*** around town
Talkiní s*** around town
You just sit around, and sit around and sit around
Talkiní s*** around town
Sticks and stones, baby
Play your part
Private showings
Are not your style

I understand how youíre feeling
It sometimes gets to me too
But the last thing I need at the end of my day
Is to hear about you

Talkiní s*** around town
Talkiní s*** around town
You just sit around, you sit around and sit around
Talkiní s*** around town
Sticks and stones, baby
Play your part
Private showings
Are not your style

Youíre talkiní s*** around town
Talkiní s*** around town
You just sit around, and sit around and sit around
Talkiní s*** around town

Talkin'

Youíre talkiní s*** around town
Well you just sit around town
Oh you just sit around, and sit around and sit around
Talkiní s*** around town, so get a life

Crazy
(Susan Cowsill)
Lead Singer: Susan

Stop the spinning in my head
Stop it, stop it, stop I said
Itís white noise burning through my brain
Quietly whispering my name

Canít find the knob to turn it down
Itís much to dark to get around
Wonít somebody come and light the way
It is totally f***ing up my day
And itís making me crazy
Itís making me crazy

Somethingís up, itís going down
Itís not just me, itís coming 'round
Wonít somebody come and save the day
Or at least a little piece of me
And itís making me crazy
Itís making me crazy
Itís making me crazy

I recognize another face
Itís time life granted me full grace
How many tickets for this ride
Well I never even ask for one

Oh please itís time that I be done
Making me crazy
Itís making me crazy
And itís making me crazy, crazy

White Light
(Susan Cowsill)
Lead Singer: Susan

Whoooooo

White light of winter
On the Vermilion
Itíll blind you
Even save your soul

White light of winter
One in a million
And itís calling your name
Telling you not to go home

White light of winter
Filling up my eyes
Shining through my heaven
Making the clouds cry

White light of winter
Lead me up river
Follow me gently
Makiní sure that I get home

Home, home
Home
Home

White light of winter
Please answer my prayers
Listen like a mother
Floating in mid-air

White light of winter
Wraps you in its robe
Covers you gently
While it shows you the way home

Home, home
Home
Home
Home, home

White light of winter
Swimming through blue skies
Drowning in silver
All of my insides

White light of winter
Your days are numbered
Fit into summer
While I find a new home

Home, home
Home
Home, home, home

White light of winter
On the Vermilion
Itíll blind you
Even save your soul

Wawona Night
(Susan Cowsill, Russ Broussard)
Lead Singer: Susan

Weíre all here together
Forever and ever
To breathe the same air
Speak our words, keep our faith
So kindness and sharing
Forgiveness and caring
And I stand where you stand
The whole human race
I donít even know you
But you I still owe
Some love and respect
For just being alive
We laugh the same laughter
We cry the same tears
So why all the heartache
For so many years
