Track Name: Superman
Superman
08/21/13 - FtLd

If I think you’re superman
Would you forgive me all my dreams
For thinking that you are much more
Than I could ever be

If I think you’re superman
Would you forgive me all my sins
For thinking that you could be much more
Than I have ever been

For these dreams they’re the only thing
That holds me through the night
I need to know you’re out there
I need to know that you’re alive
Superman

If Clark Kent is just another
Person in the street
Would you try to keep me from finding him
In everyone I see

And if you can only see him
Through the eyes of Lois Lane
I’d gladly trade mine for them
If only I could finally see

Superman you’re the only thing
That keeps me through the night
I need to know you’re out there
I need to know that you’re alive
Superman

And if I’m Jimmy Olsen
And I never get it right
Then you must always save me
Or both of us will die

For you may be much stronger
But I am the one who is alive
And if you let me down
My dreams will turn to kryptonite

Superman you’re the only one
That takes me through the night
I need to know you’re out there
I need to know that you’re alive
Superman

Track Name: The Shooting Tree
The Shooting Tree (for Folke Bernadotte)
07/20/14 - FtLd

If I shoot you and you shoot me
Then who’s left to shoot in the shooting tree
Uh huh... oh no

Cause everyone sings a different song
And no one cares what’s right or wrong
In the shooting tree... uh ho

And two wrongs never make a right
But they’ll get you through another night
In the shooting tree... uh huh

And if I kill you ‘fore you kill me
Then my lies become history
In the shooting tree... oh no

Cause everyone sings a different song
And no one wants to get along
In the shooting tree... uh ho

Though I only need one nest
My god tells me take all the rest
In the shooting tree... uh huh

And I know that you’ll do the same
So I’ll kill you in my god’s name
In the shooting tree... oh no

Yet no two god’s are quite the same
But everyone kills in their god’s name
In the shooting tree... uh ho

So maybe I’ll just settle down
Somewhere peaceful upon the ground
Out of the shooting tree... uh huh

But if I do will you shoot me
For leaving the insanity
Of the shooting tree... oh no

Cause killing only causes pain
And pain drives everyone insane
In the shooting tree... uh ho
In the shooting tree... uh huh
In the shooting tree... oh no
In the shooting tree

verse:
Am - Ef1 - Am

chorus:
Ef1 - D - Dm - Am

Track Name: Little Lambs
Little Lambs (for LK)
06/29/12 - FtLd


Mamma put your broom on down
Pappa leave your chair
Come inside to see the things
No one else has dared
To take time
It’s only time
Time to love

Brother stop your beatings
Sister leave your fears
Try to take a look inside
And see what’s inside there
It’s only time
It’s only time
Time to love

And all the little lambs
They find a place to go
And all the little children learn
The things they need to know
It’s only time
It’s only time
Time to love

And lover keep your eyes on me
And keep our love alive
And stay within my heart
When we’re apart not side by side
It’s only time
It’s only time
Time to love

And all the little lambs
They find a place to go
And all the little children learn
The things they need to know
It’s only time
It’s only time
Time to love

It’s only time
It’s only time
Time to love

Track Name: Anymore
Anymore
01/23/12 - FtLd


I was just a little girl
Living in a dream
Trying to be so nice to
Everyone and everything
But I just don’t care anymore

I was just a little boy
Trying to be brave
Chasing all the bad guys
And the burglars away
But I just don’t care anymore

Cause I have seen the dream
Get taken for a ride
And happiness become just one
More reason to cry
And that’s why I just don’t care anymore

I was just a father
Trying to do my best
Now I just sit and drink
Trying to forget
And I just don’t care anymore

I was just a mother
Borne out of love
But there are just so many times
You can be pushed and shoved
And I just don’t care anymore

Cause I have seen the dream
Get left by the side
And happiness become just one
More reason to cry
And that’s why I just don’t care anymore

(break)

And I am just a person
With a person’s soul
Once I was so young
But now I am so old
So I just don’t care anymore

Cause I have seen the dream
Come and go before my eyes
And happiness become just one
More reason to cry
And that’s why I just don’t care anymore
No I just don’t care anymore

Track Name: Everything Must Die
Everything Must Die
10/29/11 - FtLd


There comes a time
When everyone moves away
And your neighbors are no longer
The ones you knew yesterday
It’s strange how time can change
All the faces you once knew
And when you look into the mirror
Is that stranger really you

Yet somewhere deep inside
You hide a memory
Of when you were a child
Running wild and free
But now you sit and try to wonder
All the reasons and the whys
Everything must come and go
And everything must die
Everything must die

A kiss can last forever
If you don’t open up your eyes
An embrace can hold you up above
All the things that always try
To pull you under and destroy you
With their mortal fears and lies
As my love is waiting for you
In the tears I cry

And you can live forever
If only in a dream
A dream I once wished upon
While in a dream it seems
That reality has forsaken me
And left me here to try
To hold on while you come and go
Cause everything must die
Everything must die

And if I had a vision
A dream that I could make true
It would be to be with you forever
In a place where we could do
All of the things that make you me
And all the things that make me you
Then we’d be one forever
And we would never die
We would never die
We would never die
We would never die
We would never die

D - Bm - A7+23 - G+10.23
