Pennie Moore 04:31
Penny Moore was standing by A crowd of men who couldn't try To take her heart away Try to give her what she needed And everyday past waiting through Lot's of folks who're loving you To try to try to much And to feel your feelings out yeah yeah Penny Moore left home the day Her father said it's anyway And everything I say is how You live and how you walk It’s how you breathe and how you talk Oh Penny Moore So penny said I’m leaving home Her father said it'd be alone And don't expect that you'll return You're no longer welcome here And he did not cry a tear For Penny Moore So Penny Moore got on a train Then on a bus the on a plane To try get away from her problems in her head But she didn't see or think about Her problems or the lack of doubt And how she'd have to deal With everything ahead And everyday a little Moore Was standing cold and waiting for A man to say I love you so If only for an hour and with out a pretty flower Oh Penny Moore But she could see her life was bad And everything that made her mad Had made her leave only home And made her father grin and she could not let him win Oh Penny Moore Penny Moore woke up again In the street alone without a friend Her hands were nearly froze And they stained from all the smoking And every time she'd say to you What am I supposed to do You'd simply have to say Miss Penny Moore it's time to go home Now it's time to go home Yeah yes it’s time to go home time to go home Cause he didn't mean everything he said Now Penny’s dad was nearly dead And he would die alone Without his daughter knowing That the time he spent away from her Had broke his heart and he was sure He would never see Penny’s face again Her face again her face again But the words had made it to her ears And Penny realized her fears So somehow made her way back home But would it be in time just to see him one last time Oh Penny Moore So Penny Moore got off a plane Then off a bus then off a train Into a yellow cab Which drove in his direction And even though she had been gone What didn't seem like very long Her face had really changed Yeah it must have been the cold And when her eyes had met with his He began to cry and she had to miss The time that they had spent apart Was longer than a day too long for them to say Oh Penny Moore And as Penny's dad began to die Penny Moore began to cry And as he slipped away She whispered in his ear Oh Daddy oh I love you so And tell me once before you go That you love me too And you're glad I came home That you are glad I came home That you are glad I came home yeah Now go to heaven all alone

Dorthy Luck 02:26
The kettles on the stove Driving down the road Hoping not to be late Dorothy said to be there by eight She was happy and she is sad She made us lunch and we were glad Cause we had been driving all day It was rainy but we were dry Dorothy Luck had made us pie Always like to do things that way The kettles on the stove Driving down the road Without the high beams on Lights are off when the lights aren't on Dorothy Luck had heard the news A local store was selling shoes The kind that she had heard of in her dreams She got up and she got out There’s not much more to talk about Dorothy Luck had spent some bucks on shoes The kettles on the stove Were driving down the road Dorothy Lucks alone As we start to driving back home We’re going back home we’re going back home Bye bye Dorthy bye bye Dorthy oh bye Dorthy cause we’re going back home yeah we’re going back home

When she was younger she didn't have any friends She really was lost sad broken and again she dreamed of ballerinas and sunshine from above and love She picked one or two daisies as she walked home To keep in her jacket when she was all alone Knee deep in sadness of which there’s no escape for her No escape for her And when she dropped her books on the floor They would laugh at her By saying words she never sang before And they had never heard Standing up and running into what made her afraid Betty's summer vacation She's getting ready for fun No more writing on paper It's time to go out in the sun Now you see Betty must find what she left behind And what’s more when she cries she flies to unwind Leaving or standing it's all up to her to be Ahh yeah she goin’ be sitting’ there screaming excuses For all them things she never got a chance to do Life was so much easier before she met you Making it harder and impossible to breath So why don’t you get your stuff And get your butt on outta here boy And when she finally saw her eyes through the world She was terrified Then finding she’s somebody else’s girl And had no where to hide Waking up and falling asleep with nobody to blame So please set Betty free She ain’t the one to blame So standing as the escalator walks Speaking when nobody else could talk Thinking of everything that reminds her of you Betty's summer vacation She's getting ready for fun No more writing on paper It's time to go out in the sun Betty's summer vacation She's getting ready for fun No more writing on paper It's time to go out in the sun So come on out in the sun out in the sun
11.
So would it interest you my dear To stay for one more hour with me And if I’d ask for to hold you in my arms What would your answer be Well I’ve been so sad for so so long I can’t remember what it feels Like when I hear someone say Words that they really yeah Words they really Words that they really mean One more hour with you So one two candles burning slow And the clock says 9:08 to me I can see you sleeping in my bed Now the clock says 9:13 Let me tell you that I need to Let you know that that I need you To stay with me for one more hour Then you can go home but not yet Now you're awake and you’re kissing me Just as I write this song for you When I when I say I love you you say to me That you love me too just that you love That you love me too you love me too You love me too Just one more hour with you

Wooden Box 02:00
I found a wooden box That my mother left behind Filled with all the words She would never have the time My father closed his eyes Well laying down to sleep To rest his broken soul To trap his mind for free My arms requested love To be held in his thoughts To stop the naked heartache To make the heart ache stop I can quietly continue Or scream until I cry I never want to live Nor either want to die She begged me for her help She begged me not to leave I didn't see her dead Cause I didn't wanna see With beads inside her hands Tears rusted up her heart And on her way somewhere It made us be apart I don't believe in things that won't fit inside my hands and you cannot have the reason as you wouldn’t understand I’ll love you till I die I’ll love you till your gone I’ll love you when your words Are bent inside my songs I found a wooden box That my mother left behind Filled with all the words She would never have the time To say to sing to laugh To have to give to see Nothing is forever Not you not her and not me
