Track Name: Louisiana
Louisiana
Music and lyrics by Eric Hunker

The storm is coming
And I'm praying
It won't keep me here
Cuz I've been tossing
Still awake and
Racing thoughts won't clear

If I don't get to Louisiana
She'll be broken hearted and
I'll be where I started
I'll be All alone
Wait for me in the big easy
If I don't get to Louisiana

Well I've been singing
And it's not sounding
Quite like it used to
Something's missing
Something holy
I think it's missing you

If I don't get to Louisiana
She'll be broken hearted
And I'll be where I started I'll be all alone
Will you wait and still believe
If I don't get to Louisi-

If I don't get to Louisiana
I'll find another way across I'll navigate by sun and moss
I won't let you down
Even if it takes a week
I'll see you on Decatur st.
A wink at night and fast asleep
I'll dream and meet you in Louisiana (wait for me in sweet Louisiana)
Track Name: Stranger
Stranger
By Eric Hunker & Happie Hoffman

I see the light that guides you
The sun sank fast behind you
But there will be another day

The map lays out before us
An Eastern promise lures us
But still another year away

How strange that we
As strangers meet
So far outside of time
And we’re still wandering
We all have been the stranger
Looking at the stars for answers

You built a shelter for me
I’m living out your story
I read it in between the lines

The seeds that you’ve been sowing
With passing years are growing
Into the harvest that is mine

Chorus
Ooh ooh ooh
Chorus repeat
Track Name: It's Yours
It's Yours
written by Eric Hunker & Happie Hoffman

E: I just think you should know

I’ve been broken I’ve been alone

H: And I was thinking you should know

I’ve given some heart away before

E: But I’ve got this feeling

You’re the one I’m waiting for

H: you’ve got me fallin, boy I’m all in

If there’s any love left

In these old bones of mine

It’s yours

It’s yours

If there’s any love left in these old bones of mine

It’s yours

It’s yours

H: I was thinking we should take it slow, cuz we’ve got some distance we could go

E: and I’ve been looking for a way to show this isn’t what I’ve felt before

H: But I’ve got this feelin, you’re what I’ve waited for

E: you’ve got me fallin, girl I’m all in

Chorus (H melody - E harmony)

H: And just so you know I’m not perfect I’ve got a long way to go

E: (that makes two just so you know) cuz I’m tired of runnin, your my coming home

E+H: but I’ve got this feelin, you’re the one I’m waiting for

E+H: You’ve got me fallin, girl (boy) I’m all in

Last chorus acapella
Track Name: A Dream
“A Dream”
by Eric Hunker and Happie Hoffman

A dream can take you away
Yeah it can send you baby
To places you never been
And dreams are nice but
I ain't ever dreamed a dream
That's sweeter than the one
That you and I are in

I used to spend all my days
Counting the hours away
I used to spend all my time
Watching the clock tick on by

Waiting to dream
Finally now I can see...

Chorus

I'd be a fool not to see
Life as extraordinary
All of the things we can do
Here with this technicolor view

Here in this dream
And I can't help but to sing

Chorus

And I know there
Will be nights where the peace never comes
But I'll be there
Through all the nightmares
Baby I'll be the one to tell you...

Chorus
Sweeter than the one that you and I are in
Sweeter than the one that you and I are in
Sweeter than the one that you and I are in
Track Name: Sailing Away
Don’t close your eyes, I wanna be awake
The thunders got me shaking
Deep in the night, Don’t wanna be alone
While you are busy dreaming

Ooh
I know that the night calls you home
Ooh
But won’t you hold on for me

Darling
I’m trying to keep you from
Falling…asleep
I keep stalling
But my words are failing
To keep you from sailing away

Did you lock the doors, Or do you wanna check
The darkness makes me wonder..
Why did the moon, Chase away the sun
Leaving just a memory

Ooh
I know that the night calls you home
Ooh
But won’t you hold on for me

Darling
I’m trying to keep you from
Falling…asleep
I keep stalling
But my words are failing
To keep you from sailing

Away…
Away…
The sunshine is calling us
Pulling and drawing us

Darling
I’m trying to keep you from
Falling…asleep
I keep stalling
But my words are failing
To keep you from sailing

Away…
Away…
If my words are failing
I’ll let you keep sailing away
Track Name: Falling For You
Falling For You
written by Happie Hoffman

It's the middle of the night
My bones are calling me to sleep but I decide
There's a reason you and I
Won't say goodnight cuz it doesn't feel right
To walk away from someone there to run to
And only heaven knows all the things I feel about you

I have fallen victim to the night
I'm fallen far away from ever sleeping now
You hold out your hands with heavy eyes
And I don't know it yet
But I might be Fallin for you

There was something in your eyes
Underneath those summer skies those stars were flying
There's a reason you and I
Won't say goodnight cuz it doesn't feel right to walk away from someone there to run to
And only heaven knows all the things I feel about you

I have fallen victim to the night
I'm fallen far away from ever sleeping now
You hold out your hands with heavy eyes
And You don't know it yet
But I might be Fallin for you

Fallin fallin Fallin for you
For you I'm
Fallin fallin Fallin for you
For you I'm
Fallin fallin Fallin for you
For you I'm
Fallin fallin Fallin for you
For you I'm

But it doesn't feel right to walk away from someone there to run to
And only heaven knows all the things I feel about you

I have fallen victim to the night
I'm fallen far away from ever sleeping now
You hold out your hands with heavy eyes
And noone knows it yet
But I might be Fallin for you
Track Name: Oklahoma
Oklahoma
written by Eric Hunker & Happie Hoffman

One less sunny day in Austin
and the thread is running bare
Just the thought of it's exhausting
All the nights, all the boxes full of moments

You were right, about the city lights
and the Southern sun it thawed me to my bones
You came here looking for a warmer night
but the sun is rising fast and I'm not ready for the fall
Oh....

So let's set sail upon the seas of grain
I pray the rain will wash away the worry
and Oklahoma, we will make a home of you
before we're through
so let the thunder drum,
I'm coming home to you
Oh...

Well we have roamed and we have rambled
flown from sea to shining sea
you may not want to plant that foot down
but with those roots you can grow tall
and find the sky you need

You gotta fall if you're gonna learn some
and walk through the doors that open on their own
looking backward won't take you to Eden
trust the winds will take you, where you wanna go...
oh...

Chorus

Chorus
Track Name: They'll Never Take Us Alive
They'll Never Take Us Alive
written by Eric Hunker

They'll never take us alive
No they'll never take us at all
By the time they ascend we'll have met our own end
They'll never take us alive

They'll never know were afraid
No they'll never hear any cries
The wind whips away every word that we say
They'll never take us alive

We weep for the fire
But still seek the flame
Our spirits they tire
But they won't be tamed

They'll never take us alive
No they'll never know not a name
3 years we stand here until the last man
They'll never take us alive

We weep for the fire
But still seek the flame
Our spirits they tire
But they won't be tamed

They'll never take us alive
We died when all the walls fell
Our story may end but our wills never bend
They'll never take us alive
So scream from our walls
Over valley and falls
They'll never take us alive
