Track Name: Heaven Leave Your Light On
Sweet Mother Mary
Do me a favor
Ive been working hard, been on my best behavior
But this life, It don't feel right
God forgive me, I’ve had a wicked heart
Don’t forget me, I’ve got just enough time
To make things right
Whats in a dollar?
Whats in a dime?
Counting quarters is just a shiny waste of time
Don’t you think?
Sweet Mother Mary
Send us a savior
Our souls are weary and are bones are aching for life
Forgive our children, they know not the way
Forgive our children, there just doing what their told
Forgive our leaders, they know not the way
Crooked sons of bitches screwing their pants on tight
Dictating our lives
Sweet Mother Mary
Do me a favor
Ive been working hard, been on my best behavior
But this life, It don't feel right
Heaven leave your light on
So we can see the stairs
Heaven leave your light on
So we can see the stairs
Come nightfall, if we don't call
Heaven leave your light on
Come nightfall, if we don't call
Heaven leave your light on
Track Name: Best Foot Forward
I put my best foot forward
But that boot don’t always shine
I pray I won’t slip, but it’s a matter of time
Now I’m not crazy, but crazy’s done me just fine
My intentions are good
Lord knows most of the time
I take two steps forward and one behind
I know that i’ll slip its just a matter of time
So put your best foot forward
And if you slip, Don’t drop the line
It’s the reason we live and it’s the reason we rise
Folks call me lazy
and they might be right
But It’s my life to live their just wasting their lines
I don’t need no explanation
About why you drink or smoke all night
Just do what you do and have a good time
I put my best foot forward
But that boot don’t always shine
I pray I won’t slip, but it’s a matter of time
So put your best foot forward
And if you slip, Don’t drop the line
It’s the reason we live and it’s the reason we rise
