Track Name: May He Keep You As You Go
May He keep you as you go/May your friends help carry the load/May misfortune and pain bring you wisdom, dear friend/May He keep you as you go/ May the wild winds at your back/And the wolves poised to attack/May their scrapes and their blows fall harmless to the ground/May He keep you as you go/ May your strength return to you/May your youth be through and through/If you ever reach out and it seems no one cares/May your strength return to you/ May your loved ones always know/That your love for them will grow/As a seed when it's watered brings from it new life/May your loved ones always know/May your loved ones always know/May your loved ones always know
Track Name: As They Please
You say what you say/I know what you mean/I can read through your eyes/ You try what you try/You try what you mean/I can read right through your brain/Don't say no/Don't say no/ Going and you want to fight/but I don't want to say goodnight/I can see through your face again/ I don't want to try too hard/I just want to get by/I just want to get by/ I just want to see your face/It's full of love and grace/And don't you see that I am falling/ I'll try not too hard/I will beg you for the stars/I will try to be what you need / Don't give me that old line/I got just so much time/I've got too much, too much, too much, too much to do/ I don't see you everyday/I will change you anyway/There's nothing here for me now/ No one tries a little hard/Everyone thinks it's their own yard/to do as they please/ As they please/As they please
