In Your Time

“Son of a Carpenter”
(Taylor Hicks)

In the times too short to follow
A man as cold as steel
A work that can only be swallowed
From a fire lit kiln

Now the times are heavy on their shoulders
For the people who pave their ways
No more running in the future 'cause
The past is here today

For the son of a carpenter
I can feel your pain
For the son of a carpenter
Alone again

Decades of sorrow, war, and grief
And too many things going wrong
The land is wasted and time is running short
For their power is much too strong

For the son of a carpenter
I can feel your pain
For the son of a carpenter
Alone again, alone again

He has nothing but to be left alone
His hands and work should will be carried on
From a third generation son to a future grandchild
The work of a carpenter makes the whole world smile

And too many things going wrong
The land is wasted and time is running short
For the work of a carpenter
Will carry on, carry on

“The Fall”
(Taylor Hicks)

It's funny how my life changes with the snow
It takes a long, hard solid state of gold
All the times I've looked, it still occurs to me
Just passing time, trying not to mind, set my spirit free

There's a place and time for everything
When the good gets going bad
And every time I try to look and hide
It leaves you lonely, feeling blue, and feeling sad

Here it comes, just rushing in
A distant smile replied a distant grin
It's not so bad after all
I climb the ladder, you took the fall
You took the fall

Light on my feet, I'm walking down
My steps are heavier to lessen the frown
Soon, I'll be gone, so pay me no mind
There's always the worries
Wasting time, and wasting wine

Here it comes, just rushing in
A distant smile replied a distant grin
It's not so bad after all
I climb the ladder, baby, and you took the fall
You took the fall

Feelings will pass and soon have to go
The colder the heart, the harder the wind blows
Although you're trying to make
Your own throughway
You turn your back on love
With the games that people play

Here it comes, just rushing in
A distant smile replies a distant grin
It's not so bad after all
I climb the ladder, baby, and you took the fall
You took the fall, took the fall

“In Your Time”
(Taylor Hicks)

Dark night, cold stare
Can't creep behind the backdoor stair
Don't matter how, don't care
Tried to find the heart, I wasn't there

Took the highway to your soul
Rolling thunder singing low
Take me further on down the line
Hope it finds you in your time, in your time

Find the wheel, carry on
Can't change the scene, things are left undone
Don't matter, don't care
Tried to find the heart, I wasn't there

Took the highway to your soul
Rolling thunder singing low
Gonna take it further on down the line
Going to find you in your time, in your time

Find the wheel, carry on
Can't change the scene, things are left undone
Don't matter, don't care
Tried to find the heart, I wasn't there

Took the highway to your soul
Rolling thunder singing low
Gonna take it further on down the line
Going to find you in your time.....

“Somehow”
(Taylor Hicks)

There's too many things
Left to be unsaid
Some live in a dark hole
Sometimes in my head

But I'm all right
I'll get by
Somehow

You want to feel their emotion
Sometimes even hold their hand
But they're giving nothing in return
To suit their own demands

But I'm tired
And I'll get by
Somehow

Look at the people around you
Stabbing at your heart
But you still smile in kindness
For not knowing who they are

And their stories have ended
And they've lit up the town
And it's time to go home
As they go and lay their bodies back down

You want to feel their emotion
Sometimes even hold their hand
But they're giving nothing in return
To suit their own demands

But I'm tired
And I'll get by
Somehow

Look at the people around you
Stabbing at your heart
But you still smile in kindness
For not knowing who they are

And their stories have ended
And they've lit up the town
And it's time to go home
As they go and lay their bodies back down

There's too many things
Left to be unsaid
Some live in a dark hole
Sometimes in my head

But I'm all right
I'll get by
Somehow

Under the Radar

“The Deal”
(Taylor Hicks)

The sun's shining, and it's raining
No better way to describe my feel
When you left, my heart was complaining
How a couple of days can act like years

I know living with me ain't easy
When I tell you how I feel
A simple phrase, hard to put into words

Let it grow, let it show, let it flow
I'm here to show you
Baby, this love is real

Wherever you go, my heart's bound to follow
Wherever you go, then I'll be there
This being gone's been a tough pill to swallow
I hope you can feel me in the air

Now I dont mind a whole lot of waiting
If this is truly how you feel
I'm tired of scratching those reservations

If I just might, tonight, then all right,
If it's real, then go home baby,
And let's make that deal
Mmm, make that deal

I've given you the best I've got to offer
'Cause there ain't no more in here to see
This premonition I have is awful
Thanks to the moonbeams' generosity

Now I dont mind a whole lot of waiting
If this is truly how you feel
I'm tired of scratching those reservations

If I just might, tonight, then, all right
If it's real, then go on, baby
If I just might, tonight, then all right
If it's real, then go on, baby
Let's make that deal
Mmm, let's make that deal

“Hell of a Day”
(Taylor Hicks)

I've been doing lots of time
Working on love's assembly line
And now it's kinda hard to make my way
Love has made for a hell of a day

Hell of a day is what love has made
They never said love was an easy trade
Say, if you don't mind, I'll be on my way
Well, love has made for a hell of a day

So you can get on with your life, baby
And I can get on with mine
There ain't no time for heartbreak or sorrow
You can't be too concerned over spilled wine

Hell of a day is what love has made
They never said love was an easy trade
And now it's kinda hard to make my way
Love has made for a hell of a day

I've been working with the heart's metallurgy
And the nights have become cold
In this world of lonesome feeling
You can't turn silver into gold

Hell of a day, yeah, is what love has made
They never said love was an easy trade
And now it's kinda hard to make my way
Love has made for a hell of a day

Hell of a day is what love has made
They never said love was an easy trade
Say, if you don't mind, I'll be on my way
Well, love has made for a hell of a day

“Hold on to Your Love”
(Taylor Hicks)

If you need her, then show it
If she loves you, then you'll know it
If it happens, don't fight it
If you broke it, don't hide it

If she wants you, then love her
If she needs you, then you'll show her
If it happens, don't fight it
If it's true love, don't hide it

You know what they say
Well, love has settled the score
All is fair in love and war

Hold on to your love
Hold on to your love

If you want her, you'll know it
If it's real love, then show it
If it looks good, then try it
If it's too much, don't buy it

If you need her, then show it
If she loves you, you'll know it
If it happens, don't fight it
If she wants it, you'll buy it

You know what they say
Well, love has settled the score
All is fair in love and war

Hold on to your love
Hold on to your love

If you need her, then show it
If she loves you, you'll know it
If it happens, don't fight it
If it's true love, don't hide it

If she wants you, then love her
If she needs you, then you'll show her
If it happens, don't fight it
If it's true love, don't hide it

You know what they say
Yeah, well, love has settled the score
You know what they say
You know what they say

You know what they say
Yeah, well, love has settled the score
All is fair in love and war

Hold on to your love
Hold on to your love, people
Hold on to your love

“Heart and Soul”
(Taylor Hicks)

Sometimes we get weary
And find ourselves alone
In a world full of darkness
For those who have no home

This time, now, love's taking its toll
So far, I'm living off of heart and soul
Heart and Soul

I know love is around the corner
And heartache's around the bend
When will this lasting darkness
Ever come to an end?

This time, now, love's taking its toll
So far, I'm living off of heart and soul
Heart and Soul

They say love is an empty pocket
Where fools love to dwell
I can see by the looks of it
It goes to show that you never can tell

This time, now, love's taking its toll
So far, I'm living off of heart and soul
Heart and Soul
Oh, honey,
Heart and Soul

“West Texas Sky”
(Taylor Hicks)

So you're driving away these miles
So far away from your southern home
Taking your charms and dreams
To the Golden State
Make your way, seal your fate

That's when you're gone away
Where no one will hear you cry
When you're late
For that west Texas sky

When you left home, I didn't think twice
Oh, I knew, you had to roam
I knew that life was getting you down
You always feel alone
When there's no one around

But who gets cut when the knife is dull?
And who gets lost when the map is full
Nobody wins and nobody loses
Just a handful of sorrows
And too many excuses

You wanted to walk beside the ocean
Oh, and stand beside the sea
And now you can't wait until tomorrow
There's so much to do
And so much to see

So you're driving away these miles
So far away from your southern home
Taking your charms and dreams
To the Golden State
Make your way, seal your fate

That's when you're gone away
Where no one will hear you cry
When you're late
For that west Texas sky

When you're late
For that west Texas sky
For that west Texas sky

When you're late
For that west Texas sky
For that west Texas sky

“Soul Thing”
(Taylor Hicks)

I've been traveling all these years
Just barely getting by
The road can be your friend
Or the devil in disguise

When the tough get going
The muses visit me
Yet in a soft, low tone
They always say to me, say to me

It ain't no groove thing
It ain't no country twang
It's a simple refrain
It's a soul thing

Where the city street meets the county road
Where the sun is nice and warm
No matter how long I may roam
This song still takes us home, takes us home

Now we'll tell you about these times
When the blues come out to play
And jazz leaves her number
It's funny she always says

It ain't no groove thing
It ain't no country twang
It's a simple refrain
It's a soul thing

Now I'll tell you about these times
When the blues come out to play
And jazz leaves her number
It's funny she always says

Well, the city lights fly by me
As their eyes are getting heavy
We're sending our love over telephone wire
These days getting lonelier by the mile.
By the mile

It ain't no groove thing
It ain't no country twang
It's a simple refrain
It's a soul thing

It ain't no groove thing
Yeah, ain't no country twang
It's a simple refrain
It's a soul thing

“My Friend”
(Taylor Hicks)

I just want to say, my friend
I just am really feeling
In the difference in the man
Too many cards in their hand to fold out of line

I just want to say, my friend
In this world that we’re living in
Out of the goodness of the man
I’m gonna make you understand
That it might not be your time

So please don’t show me no way
I’m just barely getting by
Make a better plan for a lonely man
So I know just what to do, yeah

I just want to say, my friend
I just am really feeling
Oh, I know the way you feel
When you say that love is real
And you both will share a smile

I just want to say, my friend
I just am really feeling
In the difference in the man
Too many cards in their hand to fold out of line

So please don’t show me no way
I’m just barely getting by
Make a better plan for a lonely man
So I know just what to do, yeah

I just want to say, my friend
I’m eating my words again
I know the way you feel
When you say that love is real
And you both will share a smile

I just want to say, my friend
I’m eating my words again
I know the way you feel
When you say that love is real
And you both will share a smile

So please don’t show me no way
I’m just barely getting by
Make a better plan for a lonely man
So I know just what to do, yeah

Make a better plan for a lonely man
So I know just what to do
Make a better plan for a lonely man
So I know just what to do, yeah

Share that smile....
