    True Story                              
    by Buick Audra

    I’m named for platform shoes
    my mother saw on my Aunt Nancy’s feet
    oh, Bicentennial, we hope you’re ready for this baby’s dreams
    (why would I lie to you?
    ask anyone, they’ll say the story’s true)

    I gave my heart away
    at age thirteen, in my World History class
    I know him to this day
    he’s still a big part of my circus act
    (now, would I lie to you?
    ask anyone, they'll say the story’s true)

    and it keeps going
    I gave up on knowing
    why I have to live a life that’s so fantastically outside
    of what one thinks of as reality

    I learned to play guitar
    ten years before I learned to change the strings
    I wished upon a star
    and here I am surrounded by such things
    I made by heart and hand
    there’s a magic to “I think I can”

    and it keeps going
    I gave up on knowing
    why I have to live a life that’s so fantastically outside
    of what one thinks of as reality

    I had a song to sing
    I said, “make music with me”…  he said “no”
    I put down everything
    and wrote an album about letting go
    now my heart is free,

     

    Younger All the Time

    somethin’ ‘bout your smile takes me down too far
    I hover just above heartache; I know who you are

    you love the blue, but I’m heading for the red
    somewhere inbetween, my world goes violet

    I count on you, and you count me in
    seems fair enough, I guess, but with you I never win

    they say that in time, things all fall in to line
    but I am here, getting older, while you, (yeah you)
    you’re just getting younger all the time

    cuz in my eyes, you’ve got the world, you’ve got your girl,
    and you’re on your way, from what I see
    and through your eyes, I wonder, when you’re looking...
    let me see those eyes, oh no, don’t you look that way at me

    I know that in time, things all fall in to line
    but I am here, getting older, and you, (yeah you)
    you’re just getting younger all the time

     

    These Hands                         
    by Buick Audra

    these hands may not look like much
    ain’t got no Midas touch, but they are mine
    these hands are a little rough
    but they are soft enough to be fine
    (maybe it’s more than I can take)

    these hands sew a steady line
    they learned to play in time, and they are strong
    these hands never get a break
    they’re working every day, and the days are getting long
    (and maybe I want it all my way,
    maybe I’ll get it all someday)

    then nobody can take it from me
    if I’m all that I ever need
    I’m gonna make it, any way I can
    I will get there
    because of these two hands

    these hands have my father’s shape
    but in a different way, I have his lines
    these hands hold my mother’s dreams
    of who I’m gonna be
    but, all in my own time
    (maybe they were my dreams anyway)

    and nobody can take it from me
    if I’m all that I ever need
    I’m gonna make it, any way I can
    I will get there
    because of these two hands

     

    Strong as You Think

    how could I forget to tell you that I’m proud of you?
    oh, you know how I get, I only want the world, it’s true

    I’m not as strong as you think;  I’m stronger
    if love is forever and a day, I’ll love you longer
    if you should ever lose your way, I’ll try harder
    I’m not as strong as you think;  I’m stronger

    the rest is out of reach, so rest your pretty head
    the more you try to figure out, the less you get to know instead
    and we are just fine, you are always on my mind
    and please, just know this, ‘til the end of time

    I’m not as strong as you think;  I’m stronger
    if love is forever and a day, I’ll love you longer
    if you should ever lose your way, I’ll try harder
    cuz, I’m not as strong as you think;  I’m stronger

     

    Say You'll Stay
    by Boey Bertold

    maybe we can find the time
    to ask ourselves the reason why,
    answers are so hard to find
    behind the static of our minds

    a circumstance should not define
    your definition of the time
    the colors fade and turn to white
    like a moon that hides on a cloudy night

    now, I will make this right
    though we know I did it wrong
    but, we’ll always live inside this song

    thinking back, I almost cry
    at the times I chose to run and hide
    cuz, when you choose to not decide
    we sell our choices to spite our pride

    time will tell what was wrong and right
    just let me walk into the night
    you can’t tell me what’s wrong and right
    this is lonely, this is mine

    now, I will make it right
    though we know I did it wrong
    but, we’ll always live inside this song
    now, I will make this right
    though  the road, it seems so long
    just say that you’ll stay until I’m gone
    until I’m gone

     

    Northern Star
    by Buick Audra

    it’s a long way back to that town of yours
    on the open road from Tennessee
    eighteen hours, and every mile makes me sad
    Roanoke doesn’t know me, but I pass her by every month
    when I’m dragging myself back to you

    there are times when I can’t get nothin’ done
    you’re the only one I want to see
    and the crimes that I commit to myself are the ones
    that keep me from being free
    I just want some peace in life
    Lord, I’m ready, rain it down on me
    cuz I’m dragging myself through for you

    yeah you, you may be the younger
    you may be the kid
    you may be in trouble
    but, honey, I don’t care about what you did
    you just remember who you really are
    you are your only sister’s Northern star
    I’ll be waiting for you down in Nashville
    I guess it’s really not that far

    New York is on the way
    my old friends are there, but I can’t stay
    it just reminds me of all that time, when I let my heart get left behind
    it’s crazy how the time can pass
    and how the sweeter days go by so fast
    I have to find my way back to me, for you

    cuz you, you may be the younger
    you may be the kid
    you may be in trouble
    but, honey, I don’t care about what you did
    you just remember who you really are
    you are your only sister’s Northern star
    I’ll be waiting for you down in Nashville
    I guess it’s really not that far

     

    Brand New Lie                            
    by Buick Audra
    Buick Audra Music (BMI)                           

    I’m out of my favorite fold
    I’m a page still turning, a baby learning to crawl
    and this yellow brick road, it feels long and dirty
    I’m way past the 4 a.m. call

    this doesn’t feel like home
    oh no, this doesn’t feel like home at all

    I don’t feel like myself
    but, they can’t tell I’m being someone else

    this body is all that I own
    and it fails me daily, and your good thoughts can’t save me
    part of the problem, I am told
    is my want for something I saw in some movie

    but I, I drove a thousand miles
    yeah, I drove a thousand miles, to build a brand new lie
    I built a brand new lie

    I don’t feel like myself
    but they can’t tell I’m being someone else

    Easy Now
    by Randall Prentice

    good morning, E blues
    I’m doing alright without you
    hope you don’t mind standing
    but, you must understand that

    I know you’re not leaving
    I can’t pay for your stay
    you can take it or leave it
    but, you better believe it

    easy now, don’t be in no hurry
    easy now, don’t make me worry

    just you-and-me blues
    far back as I remember
    wouldn’t know what to do
    it seems empty without you

    let me hold onto
    this good thing I’ve got going
    oh, we all know it won’t last
    and it’s slipping by so fast

    easy now, don’t be in no hurry
    easy now, don’t make me worry

     

    It Would Be So Easy
    by Catherine Huebsch

    it would be so easy to love you again
    it would be so easy to be so much more than a friend
    time hasn’t changed a thing
    you still make those love bells ring
    it would be so easy to love you again

    it would be so easy to show you right now
    it would be so easy to tell you that I remember how to
    let my love surround you
    let my love astound you, darling cuz,
    it would be so easy to love you again

    lettin’ you go the first time was my biggest mistake
    oh, but if I get another chance to love you
    if I get another chance to love you
    baby, it’s a chance, I might have to take it

    it would be so easy to follow you there
    it would be so easy to show you how much I still care
    I never have understood
    how I turned and I walked away from love so good
    it would be so easy to love you again

     

    Florida Birds                               
    by Buick Audra
    Buick Audra Music (BMI)                       

    I’ve been holding in favor of doing it all alone
    I’ve been wasting my labor on building pride
    the winds that blow from the Southeast,
    connect to something in my soul
    they say, “let it all go now, come on, child...
    it’s a miracle to be alive”

    I want to swim free in the same old water
    I want to sit still under the same old sun
    I want to love strong as the same old daughter
    I want to lie down when the day is done
    oh, I hear the Florida birds calling me home

    I’ve been loving in patterns, with dotted lines for where to cut
    making stories into fabrics I combine
    and you might say that it don’t matter,
    but, my sweet love, it really does
    wait til you end up with the wrong heart, just the wrong size
    it’s a miracle that we still try

    I want to swim free in the same old water
    I want to sit still under the same old sun
    I want to love strong as the same old daughter
    I want to lie down, when the day is done
    oh, I hear the Florida birds calling me home

    outside my window, are the sounds of where I’m from
    every morning, they still come
    oh, how do we grow old, and still get broken down to tears
    by the sounds of all those years ago?

    maybe it’s been too long now, I’ve been gone and on my own
    I’ll be flying by nightfall…
    I’m going home

     

    Little Bit of Rain
    by Fred Neil
    Carlin Music Corp (BMI)

    if I should leave you
    try to remember the good times
    warm days filled with sunshine
    and just a little bit of rain

    and if you look back
    try to forget the bad times
    lonely blue and sad times
    and just a little bit of rain

    and if I look back
    I will remember all the good times
    warm days filled with sunshine
    and just a little bit of rain

    Something You Don’t Know                          
    by Buick Audra and Mario Quintero
    Buick Audra Music (BMI)

    coming up faster than the light of dawn
    waiting on chances til they’re almost gone
    if you lose out
    you won’t prove that you were right

    closing the house down where you don’t live
    making a list of loves that you won’t give
    but the words you write out
    still don’t change that you never tried

    say goodnight to every tired day
    say goodbye to all your tired ways
    it’s come time now, for you to finally say…
    hello, to something you don’t know

    you were a child once, but now you’re grown
    out in the big big world, kids of your own
    you can hide out
    but you will find that you’re all alone

    say goodnight to every tired day
    say goodbye to all your tired ways
    it’s come time now, for you to finally say…
    hello, to something you don’t know
