The Song Writers Notebook
Released: 2004

The Song Writer’s Notebook is a collection of sketches, of songs and arrangements by Adam or me. Essentially it is a live recording – a moment in time in a dynamic process of discovery. There is something so exciting about recording a song that is new or one that becomes new with the addition of another player. Make no mistake it is a risky kind of recording.

    Your love is rain
    My heart a flower
    I need your kiss
    Or I will die
    My very life is in your power
    Will it flourish perish no one knows
    You not I
    Agua de beber
    Agua de beber camirada
    The rain will fall upon the desert
    The rain will fall upon the sea
    The rain will fall upon a flower
    The rain is going to fall
    Let it fall down on me
    Agua de beber
    Agua de beber camirada

    Wind will blow in winter time
    You can philosophize but it won't change much
    Watch the red sun setting
    There is a yearning that the heart won't touch
    Fill my head with empty dreams
    With reams of rhymes and words, hard times and such
    And still
    My love is complete
    Come on help me decide when to walk when to ride
    Ride home with me
    My love is complete
    There's no searching for signs, walk in peace by design
    Ride on with me
    Oh ahh oh
    Come in from the wintertime
    It's getting pretty dark outside
    It's hard to see
    Fools are born, full of wonder, hearts divine
    Comes the day you'll understand
    That it takes so much time
    And still
    My love is complete
    Come on help me decide when to walk when to ride
    Ride home with me
    My love is complete
    There's no hunting for signs, walk in peace by design
    Ride on with me

    I asked
    What would I do without you in my life
    You said
    You'll never need to know
    Now I wonder
    Where those words have gone
    Love moves on
    You were the star of
    Every story that I told
    Dream of dreams that were to unfold
    Best of friends
    Through an endless end
    And now we say goodbye and if we meet again
    I know all things must change
    Some days rearranged (but I)
    Never knew the day would come
    And find you gone
    With joy comes the pain (and)
    Sunny days can turn out rain (and its)
    Falling down on me before too long
    Love moves on

    I remember all the ways that I can see love in your eyes
    I remember sharing sun and staring off at bright blue skies
    Don't be so anxious to love me at this time
    My arms aren't broken
    They're just hanging by my side
    Don't be so sensitive
    It's going to take a while
    And don't you know that I like it when you smile

    Open your heart
    Open a door if you can
    There's got to be more than three words that you can say
    You said what three words do you want to hear
    I said enough is enough
    You said what three words do you want to hear
    I said well ain't you tough
    Open your heart
    Open this jar if you can
    There's got to be more than three words that you can say
    You said what three words do you want to hear
    I said enough is enough
    You said what three words do you want to hear
    I said well ain't you tough
    But can you open your heart
    Open your heart
    Can it seem like we've started
    Something new instead of the same thing
    Over and over again
    You said what three words do you want to hear
    I said enough is enough
    You said what three words do you want to hear
    I said how about if one of them was love

    You can take all the tea in China
    Put it in a big brown bag for me
    Sail right around the seven oceans
    Drop it straight into the deep blue sea
    She's as sweet as tupelo honey
    She's an angel of the first degree
    She's as sweet as tupelo honey
    Just like honey from the bee
    You can't stop us on the road to freedom
    You can't keep us 'cause our eyes can see
    Men with insight, men in granite
    Knights in armor bent on chivalry
    She's as sweet as tupelo honey
    She's an angel of the first degree
    She's as sweet as tupelo honey
    Just like honey from the bee

    Holding onto a wing and a prayer
    Closer, I feel I'm almost there
    Supreme or sublime all in a matter of time
    Reaching for the top
    I ain't never gonna stop loving you
    I ain't never gonna stop loving you
    I'm tried of crying
    Lonely tears of Pain
    People dying
    My heart filled with disdain
    The brave, the strong who will sing their song
    R&B or pop I ain't never never gon' stop loving you
    I ain't never gon' stop loving you
    Na Na Na
    Maybe you've got a cross to bear
    There's an answer found within
    Maybe hiding and you can't tell secrets from yourself
    You say you're running out of time and time is doin' fine
    You're just running from yourself
    See words of love written in your heart
    Everything you are you are
    Reaching for the top
    I ain't never gon' stop loving you
    I ain't never gon' stop loving you
    Na na na

    Ah, look at all the lonely people
    Eleanor Rigby picks up the rice in the church where a wedding has been
    Lives in a dream
    Waits at the window, wearing the face that she keeps in a jar by the door
    Who is it for?
    All the lonely people
    Where do they all come from
    All the lonely people
    Where do they all belong
    Father McKenzie writing the words of a sermon that no one will hear
    No one comes near.
    Look at him working. Darning his socks in the night when there's nobody there
    What does he care
    All the lonely people
    Where do they all come from
    All the lonely people
    Where do they all belong
    Eleanor Rigby died in the church and was buried along with her name
    Nobody came
    Father McKenzie wiping the dirt from his hands as he walks from the grave
    No one was saved
    All the lonely people
    Where do they all come from
    All the lonely people
    Where do they all belong
    Ahh look at all the lonely people

    I have got so many reasons to smile
    Sometimes I wonder, I wonder why
    I have been spared, delivered
    My problems seem mild
    I am no ones mother I have no child
    I have got so many reasons to smile
    I may not have much money
    But I can't think of much I need to buy
    I sing out in voices, too muffled to cry
    Another mans burden, another man's pride
    We met in an airport
    She was so young she seemed shy
    Even in that new uniform
    Still she looked like a child
    I studied her posture, her high gloss shoes and her style
    She had a little blue blanket
    Somehow that made me smile
    I asked if she was leaving
    She said not for a while
    I am still in training m'am
    I've still got some time
    I have got so many reasons to smile
    When it comes round to Christmas
    I still have to try
    To remember the reasons, remember the light
    We celebrate seasons, while the young people fight
    I met someone's daughter she was leaving that night
    They fly like their fathers
    They pray every night
    We live with these questions for the rest of our lives
