Track Name: Next Of Kin
Who's that in the bridesmaid dress, twenty one years old?
She asked to hold my camera and she's workin' on my soul
With eyes that sparkle more than his diamond on your hand
I think I saw her give a cold shoulder to your man

So hand me down to your next of kin
Little sister wants to be my friend

You must admit that since I'm here I'm doin' pretty good
I idolized you for a year just like they said I would
Sister smiled and made me wave as you said your vows
Winkin' at the only dry blue eyes in the crowd

So hand me down to your next of kin
Little sister wants to be my friend

The first piece of the weddin' cake went to man and wife
She asks me if I want to shake, rubs icing off the knife
Mornin' cast her shadows clear, the writing's on the wall
Afternoon was so sincere tonight we'll have a ball

So hand me down to your next of kin
Little sister wants to be my friend
Track Name: LoveSick at First Sight
She's got a face that won't let your mind go
Your heart races as you clutch your pillow in dreams on fire
But you wake up solo
And go chasing a girl that you don't know
If her eyes melt your soul
I would wear a dark blindfold
It's a rude wakin' when you learn she's not
The answer to all of the problems you got
She's her own woman, wonderful yes
But not in the way that you see
She'll puzzle you all of your life
Lovesick at first sight

I want you to know your true love is out there
But your eyes left alone will not know where
You drink her in, a friend of a good friend
And your wildest inventions begin
Now her smile makes you sweat
It's a smile you'll regret
And curse the day you let your guard down
And pretended that she was from heaven come down
She's her own woman, worth so much pain
But not when she does not exist
You'll pine for her skin every night
Lovesick at first sight

Where there's evidence of limerence
No common sense has a home
Saving up for a ring when you don't know one thing
She needs let alone wants

She will not be your wife, you'll get on with your life
She may be a fool but if you play it cool
You might let someone in who loves you
She'll be her own woman, wonderful yes
In more ways than you ever could dream
She'll puzzle you all of your life
Track Name: I Know
How could your eyes shine any brighter???????????
How could your arms hold me tighter??????????????
How could your hair not be what I been hopin' for???
How could my cares be any more spoken for????????
I know not.

But I know 'cause every wind that whispers wants my heart to know
And everything you're doing to me tells me so
That I have found my love I know I know

How could your words be any more meant for me???
And how could the birds sing a sweeter melody?????
I know not.

But I know 'cause every wind that whispers wants my heart to know
And every chemical movin' through me tells me so
That I have found my love I know I know

How could my lips be any more willing??????????????
'Cause how could your kiss be any more thrilling?????
I know not.

What a glorious thing to give
Your one and only love
What a wonderful way to live
It's actually enough

But I know 'cause every wind that whispers wants my heart to know
And everything you're doing to me tells me so
That I have found my love I know I know

Lalalalalalalaaahhh
Track Name: Venus Landing
When I met you then I knew
I'm a-gonna shape up or I'm gonna get blue
At the drawin' board with one accord I chart my Venus Landing
Like ostriches in the sky I know none of my rockets should fly
But I gotta let them burn otherwise I'll never learn
Oh! Way down deep in your soul
Ah there must be a hole
A light is on I'm looking for a home
Are you gonna let me in?
Not gonna sleep not gonna sleep

Well I'm losin' my head tonight and I don't care
It'll be back tomorrow I swear
Search your heart you'll find me there
If you please look harder
'Cause I really believe this time that your more than a kink in my mind
Pretty soon we could set sail if you'd get to know me well
Oh! Way down deep in your soul
Ah there must be a hole
A lighter zone I'm lookin' for a home
Are you gonna let me in?
Not gonna sleep not gonna sleep
A-cha-cha a-cha-cha a-cha-cha a-cha-cha
Track Name: Star Counting
See those Chattanooga lights on the Tennessee River
Clear as a bell not a cloud in my eyes
We go dancing down that walking bridge
As the moon comes up in the sky

There are riverboats and greedy-eyed gamblers
But what I got I wouldn't trade for gold
She's sipping Cherokee whiskey
And the warm wind blows oh my my

Let's go high above the city star counting
Not far from the edge of Lookout Mountain
Get to know my darling one
And make our way when the morning comes

Now they're shutting down the lights below us for the sleeping
So milky way gets louder up above
Oh the Pleiades are singing about Heaven
She falls in love

She is sweeter than an iris hanging there in my arms
But everybody's heart has a Jekyll and a Hyde
Shoot me if I don't take both of hers
For my bride in the sun

We were high above the city star counting
Not far from the edge of Lookout Mountain
Dancing with my darling one
We'll make our way when the morning comes
