Track Name: Portrait of a Woman
Started in a dream
I was breathing for the very first time
Visions of a scene
I was free to make the choices all mine
All I could believe
I was through with him and he was on my mind
Life is shorter than it seems
Get to living or you'll be busy dying

I can't stand it
Will our life Begin
and our trouble see the end
I can't stand it
Will our life begin
or the devil settle in

Simple life it seems
So damn easy, why do I still find it hard
I'm a portrait of a woman
Who has taken all the heartaches and is scarred
You can take me out
You can take me out of comforts that I've known
Baby dare to take a chance on me!
I can feel you in my bones

I can't stand it
Will our life begin
and our trouble see the end
Ohh I can't stand it
Will our life begin
or the devil settle in

I want to say to you'
Say to you
I really love you you
you you you
You keep me up all night'
all of the night
I can't escape this thought
we could live this life
Track Name: New Voodoo Queen
It’s been three years since you left me in the dirt
I can’t recognize myself you don’t know how this hurts
They say I haven’t been to church
They say I’m wrong but the whiskey works
I can’t find a drop of goodness left

You look like you’re feeling kind of green
Everything may not be like it seems
You know you can’t hold me down
You know that man on the edge of town
He has got the hold on life and death

Say, boy, make room on the scene
You’re looking at the newest voodoo queen
Say, boy, make room on the scene
You’re looking at the newest voodoo queen

He is six foot four and a whole lot more
He’s got a bag of tricks, he’ll use them quick
He don’t stop to look around
He’s the baddest voodoo man in town
He has got me underneath his spell

Say, boy, make room on the scene
You’re looking at the newest voodoo queen
Say, boy, make room on the scene
You’re looking at the newest voodoo queen
Track Name: The Ocean
Two lovers drank the potion
May they rest in peace, may they rest in peace, may they rest in peace
Laid there, without motion
Found them finally, found them finally

Can you hear me love, I'm feeling like a silence
Can you see me love, I'm feeling like blinded
Can you feel me love, I'm colder now and diving
I have had enough, I'm sick and tired of trying

Hard swallowed was the notion
left so easily, left so easily, left us easily
You hated the commotion
May they rest in peace, may they rest in peace

Can you hear me love, I'm feeling like a silence
Can you see me love, I'm feeling like blinded
Can you feel me love, I'm colder now and diving
I have had enough, I'm sick and tired of trying

I'm afraid, I am petrified
Like a forest of dried out wood
He is dead I've been mortified
Like the preacher he said it could

Can you hear me love, I'm feeling like a silence
Can you see me love, I'm feeling like blinded
Can you feel me love, I'm colder now and diving
I have had enough, I'm sick and tired of trying
