VERSE 1
A marine's young widow
Still sleeps on her side of the bed
And she keeps her hand on the pillow
Where he once laid his head
She weeps for her children
Who miss the father that fell
Fighting so bravely
On the outskirts of hell

CHANNEL 1
And she wonders how their lives
Will ever be healed
So she drinks late at night
To dull the fear she feels

CHORUS 1
Her pain is her prison
Her grief is a cage
Now that we're living in
This frightening age
And there's no turning back
Now that we've turned this page
Now that we've entered
The Age of Rage
The Age of Rage

VERSE 2
A tired and dirty soldier
Hears a car bomb blast
Any day in this country
Could easily be his last
So he thinks of his dear wife
The sweet scent of her long hair
To help him bear the tension
And the stench of hate-filled air

CHANNEL 2
Yet he spares her the doubts
He won't ever reveal
About the suffering he's seen
The blood he's seen spilled

CHORUS 2
Is this a fool's mission
This war that we wage
Now that we're living in
This violent age
But, there's no turning back
Now that we've turned this page
Now that we've entered
The Age of Rage
The Age of Rage

VERSE 3
Lord, have mercy save us
We are led by a deluded man
He made this war by lying
And claims you're guiding his hand
He says he makes us safer
But we're on a tragic path
That only feeds more anger
And breeds the world more wrath

CHANNEL 3
But tonight he sleeps well
Unburdened by regrets
While the rest of us worry
How much worse things still could get

CHORUS 3
Heaven send us someone
A soul sane and sage
Bring back some source of light
To this darkening age
'Cause there's no turning back
Now that we've turned this page
Now that we've entered
The Age of Rage
The Age of Rage

You Took The Autumn With You

You Took the Autumn With You
Lyrics by Heather Kinkead; Music by Michael Furey

Style: Romantic/Smoky jazz

VERSE 1
I sometimes take a walk
In the late afternoon
I see the leaves have fallen
And fallen much too soon
The shadows stretch so long
Now the dusk falls by four
It's the season I remember
When it all comes back once more

CHORUS
You took the autumn with you
When you went away that day
The trees all lost their colors
The blue sky turned to gray
The moment you were gone
A biting wind began to blow
You took the autumn with you
And then it started to snow

VERSE 2
I learned to carry on
My life's been repaired
But every year I'm restless
It's something in the air
I long to fly away
With this last flock of geese
It's the season I remember
When I can't find any peace

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE
So many painful memories
Have kindly begun to fade
But in the last days of the Fall
Every detail is replayed

REPEAT CHORUS

END (slower)
You took the autumn with you
And then it started to snow

Fool's Gold

Fool’s Gold
Lyrics by Heather Kinkead; Music by Michael Furey

VERSE 1
I searched for my love
For so many years
I panned like a miner
In a river of tears
I battled my doubts
I fought back my fears
Threw back imitations
With shiny veneers

CHORUS
And then I found you
And my searchin’ was through
I thought I’d found riches
In a heart that was true
I thought forever
We’d have and hold
But this ring on my finger
Is only Fool’s Gold

VERSE 2
I thought our mountains
Would keep us from harm
But tonight another
Safely sleeps in your arms
And now our moon light
It chills me so cold
Lyin’ here with my memories
And this ring of Fool’s Gold

REPEAT CHORUS

VERSE 3
A coyote’s crying
There’s no sadder sound
Who told him the story
Of the fool’s gold I found
They all know the claim
I so proudly staked
Brought me no treasure
And only heartbreak

REPEAT CHORUS

END (Slowly)
I thought together
We would grow old
But this ring on my finger
Is only Fool’s Gold
