Track Name: Cos I Got You
Cos I Got You

When my world has lost all light
I’ll see you
And when I’ve got no sight
I’ll feel you
And when the wind gusts on a sunny day
You’ll come blowing my way
But if I’m ever looking for something new
I’m the fool
Cos I got you

And when the fire burns through my head
I’ll hear you
And when I’m lost in this bitter world
I’ll seek you
And when my hands bear more than they should
You take the burden from me
But if I ever look for something new
I’m the fool
Cos I got you

And if you get me to the church on time
Then I do
Do you want to spend your life alive?
Me too
And we’ll share in what we find
After you
And If I find myself lost at sea
I’m no fool
Cos I got you
Track Name: Sugar Nancy
Sugar Nancy

Tell me Sugar Nancy
What’s your need?
I’ve got this weapon
And it’s got seed
Oh Nancy
Won’t you take me away?
Cos I tell you honey
I’ve got nothing else to say

You know you’ve got
Those demon eyes
You’re a goddess
In disguise
Nancy
Take me away
Cos I tell you honey I’ve got nothing more to say
Come on Nancy

I see you standing
Over there
You’ve got this heart
With your bad girl stare
Oh Nancy, won’t you take me away
I tell you honey, got nothing else to say
Track Name: Your Soldier, Your Lover, Your King
Your Soldier, Your Lover, Your King


At the end of the war
Wait for me by the shore
And I’ll leave my pistol and rifle afloat
And as I watch for your flame
I’ll forever remain
Your Soldier, Your Lover, Your King

But if the flowers don’t grow
And the rivers don’t flow
And the wounds of this world don’t heal
Well I’ll sing once again
And forever remain
Your Soldier, Your Lover, Your King

As this heartache prevails
There’s no wind to these sails
And the blessed still leaves me alone
But as I grieve for your smile
And dream for awhile
I’ll never be cold or alone

And as the gun fire reigns
The crimson blood stains
And the wind batters strong on the fields
I’ll sing once again
And forever remain
Your Soldier, Your Lover, Your King

As I lie here tonight
I grow close to the light
But the pain no longer prevails
There’s a warming in my heart
As we’ll never be apart
Your Solder, Your Lover, Your King

Wherever I am
I’ll always see your light
Send me your love
And I’ll always see your light
