Album Notes
Craig Donaldson

When you pull your collar high
On a cold winter night
I'll be your distant thought of spring
And on an ordinary day
When your thoughts are far away
I'll be the color of those dreams

But I won't be there
To hold you in my arms
Or touch your pretty face
When it's time to say goodnight
And if I could go back in time
I'd try to change your mind
I’d know just what to do
And I'd be comin' home to you

When you hear your favorite song
And you start to sing along
My voice will be there in that tune
When you're weary from the fight
And you close your eyes at night
I'll be the sleep that comes to you

For all those common things
That you conquer everyday
I'll be the smile across your face

Tim Schumacher

She's an angel of the bayou, sweet southern soul
Sign of water, daughter of the coast
And I've come to realize
My future's in her eyes
Hangin’ around the Gulf of Mexico

And the moon is lightin’ up the Alabama shore
It's a night that god made lovers for
There's a cove by a grove of sycamores
Where she and I hide away
And we're fallin’ in love on the sands of Mobile Bay

We've got plans to make ‘round a bottle of wine
While the clams they bake so good on an open fire
When she's laying next to me
The whole world is complete
It's just us and the stars on the crimson tide

Lost out on the dunes along the beach
Her kisses soft as breezes off the sea

Words by Tim Schumacher
Music by Craig Donaldson

Lights are low,
Music is playing
Sweet and slow
Two hearts are swaying
Across the floor and onto the shore
Of dreams

Arm in arm
Falling together
Soft and warm
Turning forever
And more in love than before in love
The perfect scene

I love to dance with you
There’s nothing I’d rather do
Than to sweep you along with song
The whole night through
I love to dance with you

Craig Donaldson

I’ve seen a change come over you
It ain’t your clothes, it’s your new attitude
Somethin’ different ‘bout you baby you don’t have to explain
‘Cause things are getting better
Honey you can keep the change

You get home every night by five forty-five
That cold day in hell has finally arrived
Well don’t get me wrong hon, I don’t mean to complain
All I want to ask you
Honey would you keep the change?

Ooo-ee, baby what a nice surprise
I can see the change of heart in your eyes

You buy me flowers, have ‘em sent to my door
You don’t stay out all night with your friends anymore
I’ve died and gone to heaven, glad that things ain’t the same
Well I could learn to love it
Honey please keep the change

Craig Donaldson

Words by Tim Schumacher
Music by Craig Donaldson

Daytime’s fine for takin’ time and makin’ time with you
But I could be your fantasy in a moonlit rendezvous
So when you lead me away to the dark at the end of the day
Just show me that you know me, and tell me what to do

Come sweet midnight, come lay me down
In the candlelight with shadows dancin’ all around
There’s only you and me and whatever you want me to be
Come sweet midnight, come lay me down

No one knows my heart and soul or loves me like you do
It’s fair to say I love the way you fill my afternoons
But when I need to be moved, so satisfied and soothed
There’s no time like the nighttime to leave it up to you

Craig Donaldson

In this life, there are things I know
In my heart and deep in my soul
Help someone when they need a hand
Spread some joy wherever you can
And if and when it comes undone
Try to change the outcome

I need to make a difference
If not me, tell me who will it be?
And I’m here to make that commitment
When you call, you know I’ll be there
You only get so many chances
To show how much you care

So write this down, and make no mistake
I’m not here just takin’ up space
I’m the voice you’re gonna hear
Ringin’ out so loud and clear

I believe that I can change the world
One-man revolution, my small contribution
Add it to a global resolution

You know we’re runnin’ out of chances

Craig Donaldson

Sun up, break of day
San Juan sunrise in your eyes
And all this beauty wrapped around me
Never fails to take me by surprise

Movin’ free again
Rollin’ steel down the line
It’s like those yesterdays are callin’ ‘me
And this train can take me back in time

Somewhere, there’s a place inside my mind
That says I’ve been here before
And that canyon’s so familiar there
It’s like my own back door
Well anyhow, I know I’m comin’ back for more

Touchin’ me inside
This place and time that has no end
So I’ll be reachin’ for tomorrow
‘Cause my dreams are waitin’ ‘round the bend

Craig Donaldson

We lit up the night
Tender hearts in a long embrace
I still feel your breath on my face
In the light of day
It doesn’t matter what I do
I can’t stop missin’ you

Already dreamin’
The sun isn’t even pretending to set
Already dreamin’
The moon hasn’t even shown up yet
Already dreamin’
Already dreamin’ about you

Day dreamin’ of you
Restless hours occupy my time
I can’t get you off of my mind
You’ve opened my eyes
Loving you has changed my life
Let me show you how tonight

Nights already belong to you
Now you’ve got me in the daytime too

Words by Tim Schumacher
Music by Craig Donaldson

You tell me you landed low
You fell so far
Well I know, oh I know
I’ve been where you are

When the blues got your number
They hit you real hard
Beat you like a drummer
I’ve been where you are

Those ol’ ‘he said’ and ‘she said’
Can’t say where they start
Sometimes the best of heads
Make a mess of the heart

Beyond the sorrow there’s light after dark
Find it tomorrow
I’ve been where you are

I’m not here to hold you
I won’t even try
When you feel unlovable
You don’t need that guy

But if I can make it through
Baby you will too
Just wish upon a star
I’ve been where you are

Words by Tim Schumacher
Music by Craig Donaldson

She tell you that she loves you, say that she’ll be true
Say she’ll never leave, but I’m a tellin’ you
You’d better get it on paper, get that girl to sign
Her itty bitty name on the ditty little dotted line

You’d better get it in writing
Put an end to all the fighting
You’d better get it in writing
You’ve got to get it in, get it in writing

Well first she try to tell you she don’t like your face
Then she’s got her lawyer climbin’ on your case
Greasy spoon law firms, ugly little courts
First you take it in the guts, then you take it in the shorts

She’s no woman, she’s an issue
Cryin’ to ol’ judge-ee- pooh through discount tissue
