Lyrics

Ballerina

Written By: Craig Gore

Ballerina
I can feel you-
Grace of my heart fit to spin

Hallelujah
Do I move you?
Tip toe towards the edge and back again….

Step to woo you
Sweetly threw you
Oh the soulful machinations
You put me through

Ballerina
Would I release you
Does the count that I tap out
Reach into you?
Into you?

Solution

Written By: Craig Gore

You’re singing me a song behind a boarded door
Wrapped in your pollution you Sing for your solution

Your melody and mine Clash in separate time
a dissonant confusion Sing for your solution

oh oh oh oh oh

You tripped upon that note That’s tangled and unwrote
Before you thought, you spoke- you sang until you broke

A song to name a pain, Out loud to make it plain
To me cause I remained I listened yet again-
Bb Am D
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

You sang until you broke you killed the fire you stoked
And music filled the hole, dark, and deep and cold

Your tune to fix the sick- The hate, the ache, the trick-
your melancholy soul, the void, the deep, the woe-

you stop to hear the sound of silence so profound
a strong and rooted truth til now unknown to you

A harmony unfolds, and the soul gives rise to hope
up the scale you rose so sing what you now know.

oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

Working Man's Lament

Written By: Craig Gore

Do the same thing tomorrow as I done today
Waking and workin and comin home late
Pressin a hope into life after labor
Into a couple of hours til sleep comes my savior

A workin and a swingin out under the sun
Singin a song so sad til I’m done
Breaking my heart in a hunt for a heaven
When I’m just a playin and you wanna listen.

Hands’a gone hard my grip has got strong
Gonna drive me a nail for to hang my hat on
I’m hangin on tight to a chorus I won
I’ll sing me that song like a salve til I’m done.

Same thing tomorrow as I done today
Diggin for dollars and coming home late
I got an hour til sleep robs me blind
So I’ll sing you a song of the heartbreakin kind.
