Track Name: Lucky Girl
Lucky Girl
Johanna Keith

Guess I don’t wanna to sit around and complain
I got a lot to be thankful for
Things are lookin’ better every day
I forgot just what I was crying for

Cause I am a lucky girl
I’m lucky

And today is so nice the sun feels so good
And I am free from this world today
All the bastards are rolling out of my way
And everyone can tell by the look on my face

I’m a lucky girl
I’m a lucky girl
I’m a lucky girl
I’m lucky

Got kicked out of Gino and Carlo’s last night
Some meat head wanted to start a fight
But I was already leaving anyway
And who knows what would’ve happened if he got in my way
And tonight the show just went so great
Everyone only had good things to say
And the neighbors didn’t even complain
All they said was that it sounded good
Real good

I’m a lucky girl
I’m a lucky girl
I’m a lucky girl
I’m lucky
I’m lucky
Oh I’m lucky
A lucky girl
Track Name: Favors
Favors
By Johanna Keith

Throw me out
Throw me out cause you don’t know what I’m worth
Well I don’t give a damn
Cause I’ve been working my whole life
And I know the time is right
I know just who I am

So don’t call out your favors 1,2,3 who’s going follow thru

Throw it down
Throw it down watch sink without a sound
That’s all right with you
What’s done is done
I just wish we had more fun
But that was always harder for you

So don’t call out your favors 1,2,3 I’d like some favors too
Calling on your favors 1,2,3 as long a we don’t count on you

Throw it down, to the ground, watch it sink, without sound
Throw it down, I guess it didn’t work
Cause your pride and your ego got hurt

Calling in on your favors 1,2,3 who’s gonna follow thru
Calling on your favors 1,2,3 as long as we don’t count on you

Throw me out
Throw me out cause you don’t know what I’m worth
Well I don’t give a damn
Cause I’ve been working my whole life
And I know the time is right
I know just who I am
Track Name: Day to Day
Day to Day
Johanna Keith

My heart’s so fragile that it could break in a 1000 pieces
Every time I hear your name it sounds like rain
And shiny bracelets and shiny books
And Smiling faces and masquerading looks and subtle glances the unexpected choke

Pick me up from the day to day
The worlds gone crazy like there’s no other way
I can’t seem to stop it so I play the game
Tell me how are you getting around

They caught you sleeping behind the wheel
You were all alone without a care the wind rushing through your hair
But you keep on tryin’ and you miss the mark
Cause you packed up everything but the spark keeps you going don’t put it down you’re much too smart

Pick me up from the day to day
The worlds gone crazy like there’s no other way
I can’t seem to stop it so I play the game
Tell me how are you getting around

How are you
Gettin’ around
How are you
Keepin’ it from gettin’ you down

I walk down here on the road they call the big empty
And I hear myself call my own name and it sounds like rain

Pick me up from the day to day
The worlds gone crazy like there’s no other way
I can’t seem to stop it so I play the game
Tell me how are you getting around
How are you getting around
How are you getting around
Track Name: Color Outside the Lines
Color Outside the Lines
Johanna Keith

Hey what do like, what do you show and what do you hide
What is it you need, what do you want, you can tell me

Hey was that you in the warehouse shakin’ the roof
Later down the hall, top of the stairs, you were takin’ a fall
Cause you didn’t get what you wanted and you never got what you need
They told you, color inside and follow, if you color outside you bleed

Hey was that you poppin’ the pills and downin’ the booze
Saw you on the news, took your life and you took hers too
Cause you didn’t get what you wanted and you never got what you need
They told you, color inside and follow, if you color outside you bleed

Hey
Color outside the lines
X4

No you didn’t get what you wanted and you never got what you need
They told you, color inside and follow, if you color outside you bleed
No you didn’t get what you wanted and you never got what you need
They told you, color inside and follow, if you color outside you bleed
Track Name: I Lie
I Lie
Johanna Keith

I’ve been alive forever you can tell by the way I smile
I was alive when you were born and I’ll be alive when you die
I’ve touched the bottom of the ocean blue
I’ve climbed higher than you know who
I’ve seen the sun rise from Jupiter
And I’ve kissed every star in the universe

And I lie and that’s a fact

Well I’ve had the best that money can buy
And I’ve been happy and peaceful inside
I’ve written every song that you can sing
And I’ve flown higher than a bird with wings
I’ve touched the softness of a million lips
And I taught a bear to do backflips
I met Dalai Lama in Tibet
And I’ve never had one single regret

And I lie and that’s a fact

They say there’s only one truthful soul in 10
You lie once you got to do it again
Soon those lies start to look like facts
You better sort it out before they come back
Yeah they come back and that’s a fact

I’ve been alive forever you can tell by the way I smile
I was alive when you were born and I’ll be alive when you die
I touched the softness of a million lips, I taught a bear to do backflips
I met the Dalai Lama in Tibet
And I never had one single regret

And I lie and that’s a fact
Yeah that’s a fact
Oh that’s a fact
Yeah that’s a fact
Track Name: Where I Want to Be
Where I Want to Be
Johanna Keith

Oh my dear they spit on you
And told you things that weren’t true
And laughed while your face turned blue
And now it’s all up to you
And everything is so unsure
The love you had isn’t there anymore
And you keep wavering back and forth
There’s no plan no set course

Take me away from here I got to get out of here
Someplace else is where I want to be
Where I want to be

And time and time and time again
They told you how and where and when
but never how to get back again
To your home

Take me away from here I got to get out of here
Someplace else is where I want to be
Take me away from here I got to get out of here
Someplace else is where I want to be

Oh my babe you got left on the line
You got two good cookers but the one’s getting high
And he was so darn left in the bar last night
But he was so good looking that it started a fight
And he said oh no that ain’t right
You better get you some good thing tonight
he said oh no that ain’t right

Take me away from here I got to get out of here
Someplace else is where I want to be
Take me away from here I got to get out of here
Someplace else is where I want to be
Where I want to be
Track Name: Great Escape
Great Escape
By Johanna Keith

You wanna ride a round in your slick back heart attack candy convertible
Dripping lemonade on the Sunday parade
Waving your hands from side to side
Picking up the guys and give em a ride
And you’re off and away
It’s a great escape

You wanna ride around in your beat back caddy shack
Rocking to the hidden track
24/7 with a bar in the way back, way back
And Stephanie is putting her lipstick on
Kiley is hummin a Prince song
And you’re off and away
It’s a great escape

ooooh wooh oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh wooh ooh ooh ooh everyone was singin
ooooh wooh oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh wooh ooh ooh ooh just like that
ooooh wooh oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh wooh ooh ooh ooh everyone was singing
ooooh wooh oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh wooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

You wanna slide inside to the souped up leather seat
Sporting your bare feet
Sunglasses shining down outta town street
And Stephanie is takin her high heels
And Kiley is humming an Old 97’s song
And you’re off and away
Yeah you’re off and away
Wel it’s a great escape

ooooh wooh oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh wooh ooh ooh ooh everyone was singin
ooooh wooh oooh ooh ooh ooh oooh wooh ooh ooh ooh just like that
ooooh wooh oooh ooh ooh ooh oooh wooh ooh oooh oooh everyone was singin
ooooh wooh oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh wooh ooh ooh wooh oooh ooh ooh
Track Name: Melodies of Maladies
Melodies of Maladies
Johanna Keith

Melodies of maladies are all I have to give
I sit and wait and listen to the rain it sounds so sure and steady
Well it seems like the sirens have been screaming for days
Every time I get a chance to listen

It seems like you’re not listening to me
I know you see my lips moving
But you don’t even disagree

Cause I fell in a puddle of mediocrity and in between
And I keep on talking you’re noding but I don’t think you know what I mean

Cause it seems like you’re not listening to me
I know you see my lips moving
But you don’t even disagree
And I’m surprised you waited in line
Oh go on and be a man about it
You’re so cool
There’s something so bad about it
What you say and what you do
No you’re not sad about it
The way you do
Go on and be a man about it
You’re tired and bored of playing by the rules

It seems like you’re not listening to me
I know you see my lips moving
But you don’t even disagree

I said it seems like you’re not listening to me
I know you see my lips moving
But you don’t even disagree
You don’t even disagree
You don’t even disagree
Track Name: Come to Jesus
Come to Jesus
Johanna Keith

Walking over bridges layed just before my feet hit the floor
I don’t know what happens next but I know when the knocks on my door

Come to Jesus x8

I struggled so hard to get by getting tougher every day
Nothing seems to satisfy like it did yesterday

Come to Jesus X8

All his love pouring out
Spreading his glory around

Looked around thought you were gone got down on my knees to pray
And every word that used to cut me down became the dawn to my new day

Come to Jesus X8

All his love pouring out
Spreading his glory around

Walking over bridges layed just before my feet hit the floor
I don’t know how what why where when but I know what I came here for
Track Name: All's Forgiven
All’s Forgiven
Johanna Keith

I tried to make it there but something evil’s in the air
I’m warning you beware
Once I get past the point there’s nothing you can do
I never meant to hurt you

And you said baby it’s alright
You said baby you know it’s alright
All’s forgiven

Things get exposed in light
We’re making up or start a fight
Go back and sort it through
Tried my best to do right by you
I never meant to hurt you

And you said baby it’s alright
You said baby you know it’s alright
All’s forgiven

All’s forgiven
All’s forgiven
Baby oh baby oh baby
You know it’s alright
All’s forgiven
It’s alright
All’s forgiven
It’s alright
All’s forgiven
It’s alright
Track Name: Weather Report
Weather Report
Johanna Keith

I’ll be your weather report get on the bus
And look at all the faces
What Do they say rain or shine will you be mine that way

8:07 am 61 degrees going going gone but you never told me why you had to leave

So why did you go so far away from me because you seemed so nice that once or twice we got to meet

Here tomorrow same time same place
If it’s still raining, because if it’s not I’ll take a walk under the trees

So why did you go so far away from me because you seemed so nice that once or twice we got to meet
Track Name: Can This be Love
Can This Be Love
Johanna Keith & Jim Moseley

Never saw this coming
Never had a clue
Never felt the way I feel
When I'm with you

You lift me up
So high up off the ground
Bring a smile to my face
Whenever you're around

Can this be love
Can this be true
Is it just me
Is it just you

Well I’ve been training
My whole life for this
The vastness of the universe
Coalesces in your kiss

And I have never felt such a love as this
Can you tell me
Is that what this is

Can this be love
Can this be true
Is it just me
Is it just you

Can this be love
Can this be love
Can this be love
Can this be love
Can this be Love
Can this be true
Is it just me
Is it just you
Is it you
