Track Name: Better Look Both Ways
"BETTER LOOK BOTH WAYS" by David Guilbault

Better look both ways
Before you take a step.
Better look both ways
Before you step into the fray.

Coming from the left.
Coming from the right.
Coming at you now
With all they got, with all their might.

Look out, look out. Look out, look out.
Well, here they come,
They’re coming on strong. They long for a fight.

They follow like fools.
A mob that’s easily ruled.
They’re led to believe
That those they need are their enemies.

Beware, beware. Beware, beware.
Here they come.
They’re blind and dumb and numb with fear.

Better look ahead
Before look behind.
Better look real good
Because they could be out of their minds.

Hear ye, hear ye. Hear ye, hear ye.
Better look both ways
Before you play with your liberties.

Better look both ways
Before you take a step.
Better look both ways
Before you step into the fray.

Track Name: Just a Man
"JUST A MAN" by David Guilbault

You say that I’m your angel.
Well I wouldn’t count on my wings,
To take you off to heaven,
Or to bring you anything.
You say that I’m your savior.
Well I’ve got my own cross to bear.
I’m Just a man, just a man, just a man, who's there.

You say that I’m your hero.
Well I wouldn’t count on my strength,
To come to your rescue,
Or to save you from anything.
You say that I’m your white knight.
Well, my armor’s pierced and worn.
I’m Just a man, just a man, just a man, that’s all.

Well, darling I’m no angel.
If I was I’d fill your life with grace.
And baby, I’m no hero.
If I was I’d take you from this place.
I’m sure no savior.
Got no holy name to call.
I’m Just a man, just a man, just a man, that’s all.

But just this man can hold you
And make you feel safe in his arms.
And just this man can love you
For all the special things you are.
And just this man can be there
When you need him in your life.
I’m just the man, just the man, just the man, who's right.

Track Name: When She Got That Ring
"WHEN SHE GOT THAT RING" by David Guilbault

She coulda had most anything.
But she had to have that wedding ring.
Ev’rything she said and done,
Said her life had just begun
When she got that ring.

She wore that band like a golden crown.
She took that man and she wore him down.
Like a jester in her court,
She made him dance until his feet were sore,
When she got that ring.

And oh-oh-oh.
His time moved slow-o-ow.

He thought about it for a time.
He fought against it as the years went by.
But down deep inside he knew
The trials that she had put him through
When she got that ring.

And oh-oh-oh.
It was time to go-o-o.
And through his heartache,
He saw the light.
Felt his right.
Took his flight.

She got the house and the picket fence.
She got the kids and the fancy friends.
He got a hurt he can’t abide.
He lost himself and slipped inside,
When she got that ring.

And oh-oh-oh.
Still hurts him so-o-o.

Track Name: Dirty Money
"DIRTY MONEY" by David Guilbault

Dirty money. Dirty money.
I’m being bought and sold with dirty money.
Filthy lies. Filthy lies.
You can buy a world of hurt with filthy lies.
You can buy a world of hurt with filthy lies.

Who’s fooling who? Who took the bait?
Who stole the seal that sealed the poor man’s fate?
Who took the cash from the working hands?
Who took him down and paid the man?

It’s a crying shame, what’s being done.
There’s a robbery and the lawman’s got the gun.
The hunter court leads the way.
They lying thief collects the pay.

Nowhere to go. Nothing more to say.
The hand of state knows it can have its way.
The vultures fly. They own the sky.
They pick the life out of your eyes.

Dirty money. Dirty money.
I’m being bought and sold with dirty money.
Filthy lies. Filthy lies.
You can buy a world of hurt with filthy lies.
You can buy a world of hurt.

Track Name: Where I See
"WHERE I SEE" by David Guilbault

In the dark is where I see,
When the night takes hold of me.
In the twilight there is truth.
Dark blue calm. All Alone.
Vision ponders darkness yet to come.

Sometimes it can be so clear,
That the shadows disappear.
Ev’rything is as it seems.
Save the dark. Save the light.
Truth stands solid, revealing what is right.

Love is seldom why we part.
Rarely is there loss of heart.
It’s the pain that breaks the bonds.
Chronic hurts, unkind words,
Fray the heartstrings tethered to love’s worth.

Wounds of love will take their toll.
Over time they’ll kill the soul.
And the passion turns to pain,
Turns to hurt, turns to tears,
Takes the goodness and turns it into fear.

In the dark is where I see,
When the night takes hold of me.
In the twilight there is truth.
Love is week, breaks from strain.
Love is never stronger than the pain.
In the dark is where I see.

"Where I See" © 1999 David Guilbault

Track Name: That Punishing Rain
"THAT PUNISHING RAIN" by David Guilbault

I feel the breath on my neck,
A blistering wind.
It’s coming down hard now,
That punishing rain.
I’m wet to the bone again.

I hear the steps at my back,
A gathering storm.
It’s coming down hard now,
That punishing rain.
I’m wet to the bone again.

I don’t fear Jesus.
But I’m afraid of my own hand.
Lord I just can’t go through this again.
I just can’t live through this again.

I dread the knock on my door,
A rising flood.
It’s coming down hard now,
That punishing rain.
I’m wet to the bone again.

I don’t fear Jesus.
But I’m afraid of my own hand.
Lord I just can’t go through this again.
I just can’t live through this again.

I await the hand on my heart,
A beckoning calm.
It’s coming down hard now,
That punishing rain.
I’m cold to the bone again.
I’m cold to the bone again.

"That Punishing Rain © 2009 David Guilbault
