Track Name: Crooked Stick
if you had a river and I had ship to sail
would you give me shelter, a place to hide from the rain

I long for the wide open ocean I do
but if I had to live somewhere, I'd live there with you
only you

so don't look at the clouds, they are dark and foreboding
we need some direction to know where we're going

and at night on the road by the blue dashboard light
I'll be thinking of you and what you'd be doing right now

my loyalty's fixed, I am your friend
but I'm a crooked stick from end to end
be my river, carry me home

I'm a confident man, my house was build with stones
there'll be true love waiting for me when I get home

I long for the wide open ocean I do
but if I had to live somewhere, I'd live there with you

my loyalty's fixed, I am your friend
but I'm a crooked stick from end to end
be my river, carry me home

I long for the wide open ocean I do
but if I had to live somewhere, I'd live there with you

my loyalty's fixed, I am your friend
but I'm a crooked stick from end to end
be my river, carry me home

(For S.)
Track Name: Promise
if I tell you a little secret
will you promise not to tell

if I tell you my little secret
I need you not to tell

because I need a friend true and loyal
please promise me you will not tell

only we know
no else knows
will you promise not to tell
Track Name: "In Zen There Is No Struggle"
I'm always on my own
I'm always on my own
I'm always on my own when I'm with you

I've got nowhere to go
I've been there before
I've got nowhere to go when I'm with you

so I drink myself a drink
and I smoke myself a smoke
I'm always on my own when I'm with you

I don't mind it
so I don't fight it
I just stand a-side
it's just one second
it's just one lifetime
I let it roll on by
