THE LOVIN BEE ©2011 Britt Arnesen The Lovin Bee is a nectar-hungry hummingbird in June When the petals open find her roaming singing of her news I tried to say don’t listen to her high and lonesome tune But The Lovin Bee went and told that man the truth She said I’m slow as a flower, six months from bud to bloom And it gets cold in my shadow like the dark side of the moon I tried to say don’t follow when I’m waltzing toward my doom But The Lovin Bee made that man a fool Guardrail gone, double-yellow canyon sign says 45 With the windows down pass small towns and wave hello goodbye I tried to say don’t drive that way where the earth and I collide So The Lovin Bee just told that man to fly She said I’m slow as a flower, six months from bud to bloom And it gets cold in my shadow like the dark side of the moon I tried to say don’t follow when I’m waltzing toward my doom But The Lovin Bee made that man a fool Summer’s thunder steals my slumber, rainbows wake my dreams On a bed of weeds in an open field, the wind upon my heels I tried to say I don’t play those games your lightning won’t strike me So The Lovin Bee just told that man to wait and see I’m slow as a flower, six months from bud to bloom And it gets cold in my shadow like the dark side of the moon I tried to say don’t follow when I’m waltzing toward my doom But The Lovin Bee made that man a fool I tried to say don’t follow but we're waltzing toward our doom 'Cause The Lovin Bee made me love him too

2. TIME WON’T WAIT ©2003 Richie Reinholdt Ooh little girl if you only knew How much it means to me To mean so much to you You’re growing up so fast it’s hard for me to realize Life is rushing past You’re changing before my eyes Time won’t wait for anyone If I could take the blows for you You know I surely would I’d keep you from all harm If only I could But time won’t wait for anyone Such a pure heart and soul Your life’s waiting to unfold Bless the day you came into my life When you‘re ready to be on your own Gonna have to let you go ‘Cause the day is coming soon You’ll be walking out the door Time won’t wait for anyone Ooh little girl if you only knew How much it means to me To mean so much to you

Scenic Idaho 03:31
3. SCENIC IDAHO ©2013 Britt Arnesen Scenic Idaho, your lightning came and shook me Thirsty grass in flames, the drought fed the spark They said that nothing could fight the wildfire between us It burned so hot all summer long I’ve had some time to do my thinking Too many nights when I’m the smoke under your stars I never thought you’d hold me there and keep me But here we are back in the same old spot And I just can’t stay mad at you for long For every ounce of trouble you’ve got a pound of charm I’m throwing up my hands, Babe, I’m sorry oh I’m wrong Now please don’t stay mad at me so long Maybe I’ll have better luck in Bozeman Or Butte, America (man my hope is a mile high) I see Our Lady of the Rockies from the Freeway And wave goodbye across the Great Divide I just can’t stay mad at you for long For every ounce of trouble you’ve got a pound of charm I’m throwing up my hands, Babe, I’m sorry oh I’m wrong Now please don’t stay mad at me so long Sometimes your best laid plans they turn out oh so wrong Let's don't stay mad so long

March 04:13
MARCH ©2005 Richie Reinholdt Like pugilistic fists, her words strike out at the night It’s holiday time again Like one more drink of water fed to a drowning man She’ll gladly fill the glass to the brim When the fever gets this high, water freezes to the touch Drenching down the ruin of the night Like a crack in the world, the reservoir lets go There’s a fine line between wrong and right I cannot follow all these winding broken paths of regret It just flushes me down the drain so fast ‘Cause the shores of my own dreams are all littered with debris Washed up from the wreckage of my past The stifled snores of souls asleep in their lives Is the sound of emotions on the run No expectations of success when failure is the choice Transgressions ignored one by one She never takes the time for false apologies Denial is an easier way out But scores are only promises whispered to the dark Debits to an overdrawn account All this talk of release but the change never comes Still waiting for signs from above A shifting of regrets that always takes its toll Offerings at the altar of love She only wants me for display in her collection of mistakes Mounted securely to a board And all the things I have to say are lessons in rejection My uselessness, her one reward When the fever climbs this high, water freezes to the touch Drenching down the ruin of my life Like a crack in the world the reservoir lets go It’s a fine line between day and night Like a crack in the world the reservoir lets go There’s a fine line between wrong and right

Pretty Lies 03:21
PRETTY LIES ©2012 Britt Arnesen Sister met him at a bus stop He was short, she gave him five bucks Could have known he was going nowhere fast Saw them later at my gig that night He was drunk and said she looked nice She caught his bug, fell in love, lost her mind You're gonna need more than, gonna need more than You're gonna need more than pretty lies I hope you've come here to say your goodbyes And walk the line we draw tonight Early summer they were married All the sudden there's a baby And the bum is gone, he left a note and her alone Still she kept the ring on Always hoping for a miracle But he didn't show, she had to get a smaller home You're gonna need more than, gonna need more than You're gonna need more than pretty lies I hope you've come here to say your goodbyes And walk the line we draw tonight Gotta get up on a stage now Play guitar and entertain now Watch him dance with some young thing I don't know All the money that he wasted All the times that he betrayed her All my nephew knows of a father is a ghost You're gonna need more than, gonna need more than You're gonna need more than pretty lies I hope you've come here to say your goodbyes And walk the line we draw tonight I hope you've come here to say your goodbyes Goodbye

No X 02:56
NO X ©2006 Richie Reinholdt She never calls to say she’s leaving she just walks away And when I see her in his arms she doesn’t have to say How much she doesn’t care she’ll be glad to tell you so But it’s something I already know Well she’s not one for talking she leaves it all unsaid There’s not much point in telling me what she once felt is dead The fact that she’s moved on she’ll be glad to let you know It’s something I already know Don’t ask her to remember she works hard to forget For her sympathy is just a form of regret There’s no shelter from these feelings no safe haven to hide ‘Cause the tempest that surrounds her just batters me inside And her favorite game to play is watch the old guy squirm I guess I’ve got more lessons to learn Don’t ask her to remember she works hard to forget Circumstantial evidence that hasn’t happened yet I’ll be glad to forget her when she’s finally gone And I won’t have to hear her name every time I turn around I won’t have to pretend that I’m good at letting go But I think that she already knows It’s something she already knows

CANYON’S LULLABY ©2012 Britt Arnesen Little darling go to sleep my child Let the dark wash across your eyes When you wake up we'll say a long goodbye You’ll board a plane to Juneau's sky When the wind blows, brings you letters I write Hear the music with your heart and mind Come tomorrow when your wings take flight Remember my lullaby You're far away now counting ravens on the beach Enchanted forests of all the berries you can eat Catch a big fish now or just stay dry and read From time to time would you think of me I watch the coal trains, you watch the sea And go to the glacier while I walk the city streets And how I miss you so much more than you miss me More than you miss me When the wind blows and brings you letters I write Hear the music with your heart and mind I'm feeling sorry for every tear you cry Always I'm by your side Little darling go to sleep my child Let the dark wash across your eyes Come tomorrow when your wings take flight Remember my lullaby

Nightingale 03:35
NIGHTINGALE ©2013 Richie Reinholdt Nightingale, hold on to your dreams Not all things are as bad as they seem Good things come to those who wait Nightingale singing at the gate The stars look so far away And it seems they’ve nothing to say But they whisper softly until dawn Harmonies to your song Patient for the morning light Singing out through winter’s longest night And though dark and shadow chill the heart The fire just needs a spark to start So Nightingale, hold on to your dreams Not all things are as bad as they seem Good things come to those who wait Nightingale singing at the gate Never deviate from your path Dig in your heels plant your feet Set your course straight ahead Fly your way up Grammy Street Time runs away with your heart Hours and minutes fall apart Everything happens for a clue This message waiting for you Nightingale, hold on to your dreams Not all things are as bad as they seem Good things come to those who wait Nightingale singing at the gate Oh Nightingale, it ain't too late

9. DREAM IN BLUE ©2012 Britt Arnesen The other night I had a dream in blue Counting stars for every time I lose you Calling out to the lonesome moon and Waiting on a white flower to bloom Float along the river's lazy bend See the willows standing hand in hand They sing about my lovesick blues and Drown me in their mournful music The other night you had a dream in red Lost your sleep to the noise of the unsaid Strange sounds from the open window Wander out to the ghost who knew you Lay me down upon the stones I threw Close my eyes so they can't accuse you Make believe that you didn't do it Innocent until they prove it Tell your alibi until it's true Swallow all the pleasures of your choosing Hear the barn owl wondering "who?" He's there to watch your every move The other night I had a dream in blue Counting stars for every time I lose you Calling out to the lonesome moon and Drowning in my mournful music

Masquerade 03:05
MASQUERADE ©2013 Richie Reinholdt If you meet me in the garden, please wear your cotton dress I’ll put on my raincoat and play happiness If I meet you in the hallway between day and night Don’t look at the bartender in the smoky light Then I’ll put on my mask and pretend I don’t care I’ll pretend that I don’t see your face everywhere Pretend I don’t feel you pretend I can’t see The masquerade between you and me if you’re going berry picking in the endless summer sun And you need someone to hold your basket let me be the one We’ll let the dog run wild and watch the children play We’ll give in to a soft caress with nothing more to say When the sun goes down on these afternoon delights We’ll let the evening shadows roll us into night Wash our hands brush our feet and teeter on the brink I’ll meet you in the kitchen right behind the sink Then we’ll put on our masks and pretend we don’t care I’ll pretend that I don’t see your face everywhere Pretend I don’t feel you pretend I can’t see Masquerade between you and me

11. BLUE AFTERNOON ©2012 Britt Arnesen Blue afternoon Heartache's contagious I come down with the blues Every time that you call Blue afternoon Flirting with danger Always trying to drag me Down when you fall You left me too soon Kisses denied me Loving deprived me On a blue afternoon Blue afternoon Heartache's contagious I come down with the blues Every time that you call Blue afternoon I can't stop flirting with danger Always trying to drag me Down when you fall Oh blue afternoon Don't drag me down when you fall

Tuff Girl 04:01
12. TUFF GIRL ©2005 Richie Reinholdt She’s a tuff girl tougher than you And she’ll prove it every day She’s a tuff girl does what she wants Just don’t get in her way She’ll tell you she’s to blame if it all goes wrong She does what pleases her most But when the moment’s gone and she’s moved on Oh you might as well be a ghost ‘Cause she’s a tuff girl tough as can be You’ll never break through her shell Likes it rough girl oh oh can’t you see Tuff girls never kiss and tell She’s a million lives away from where you want her to be A place that changes every day And she can see for miles and miles and miles behind All the losers along the way You can scream her name a thousand different ways But she’ll never answer your call ‘Cause she’s the one that keeps her answers in a drawer Locked up in a room down the hall ‘Cause she’s a tuff girl with her own set of rules Just don’t follow her around Had enough girl she’s already made fools Of all the boys downtown She could have been a model in a lacy negligée Daring you to look her in the eye ‘Cause the camera loves her smile but deep behind the mask There’s a heart forbidden to cry ‘Cause she’s a tuff girl out on the run Running away from herself ‘Cause tuff girls hey just wanna have fun No one’s gonna put her on no shelf

Night Sky 03:26
13. NIGHT SKY ©2012 Britt Arnesen My heart speaks now listen I'll sing you a lullaby For the nightmares that you've been living Daydreams gone awry In a moment when I didn't know you A feeling green and blue A moment when I didn't know you The baby that you've been rocking Cries and cries the whole day through The phone rings door's a knockin' Lay in bed 'til noon In a moment when I didn't know you A feeling green and blue A moment when I didn't know you My heart speaks now listen I'll sing you a lullaby For the stars that you've been given Moonbeams and northern lights A night sky in green and blue A night sky

14. WALKING SHOES ©2012 Britt Arnesen Find him by the roadside, Joey’s thumb and cardboard sign Spare a seat and take him to the next state line He’s still running from the dream he tried to kill so many times Fleeing from the courthouse papers dodging sentences and fines Fence him in and take away his walking shoes Too much freedom never done him any good He’s one mistake away from nothing left to lose Fence him in and take away his walking shoes Their first son went to law school and the second one’s a doc Mama’s always wondering how little Joey went so wrong She tried to tell him time is short, mistakes are long But he’s sneaking out the back door I’m stuck singing his song They stopped him in a small town where the sign said 25 Clean cut sheriff’s deputy didn’t want his bribe Hauled him off to the county jail so he could sit and cry ‘Cause they took away his whiskey and a little golden pipe
