The Distance Wall (Songs in Album Order)
       


ANGEL FROM MONTGOMERY
John Prine ©1971 WB Music Corp. O/B/O Walden Music, Inc.  
Used By Permission

I am an old woman, named after my mother; 
My old man is another child that's grown old
If dreams were thunder, lightning were desire, 
This old house would have burned down a long time ago

Make me an angel that flies from Montgomery 
Make me a poster of an old rodeo
Just give me one thing that I can hold on to
To believe in this living it's a hard way to go

When I was a young girl, I had me a cowboy; 
He weren't much to look at, just a free ramblin' man
But that was a long time, and no matter how I try, 
The years they roll by like a broken down dam

Make me an angel that flies from Montgomery
Make me a poster of an old rodeo
Just give me one thing that I can hold on to
To believe in this living it's a hard way to go

There's flies in the kitchen, I can hear them buzzin'
I ain't done nothin' since I woke up today
How the hell can a person go to work in the morning; 
Come home in the evening and have nothing to say

Make me an angel that flies from Montgomery
Make me a poster of an old rodeo
Just give me one thing that I can hold on to
To believe in this living it's a hard way to go

BURN
©2006 Carey Colvin (p)Raspberry Sun Music (BMI)

I thought that we were past the desperation, 
But it's flamed into a raging fire
My life is burning down around me
And I can't hold my true desire

I can feel the flames; they reach to my knees
I can feel the flames; they are burning me
I can feel the fire, it's everywhere I turn, and all I seem to do is burn

I've lost so much that I can't see the losing, 
I've hurt so much that I can't feel the pain
I wish that I could find a way to tell you 
I never want to see your face again

I can feel the flames; they reach to my knees
I can feel the flames; they are burning me
I can feel the fire, it's everywhere I turn, and all I seem to do is burn

I should have known by now; I could have told you how this would be
We stand on shattered ground, and you place all the blame on me

I've always been the one you turned to, 
But now you always try to take me down
It's funny how things seem so much smoother 
Any time you're not around

I can feel the flames; they reach to my knees
I can feel the flames; they are burning me
I can feel the fire, it's everywhere I turn, and all I seem to do is burn

COMING BACK HOME
©2006 Carey Colvin (p)Raspberry Sun Music® (BMI)

You've been gone so long, 
Seems longer than it's really been
I don't know what went wrong, 
But I can't wait to have you home again
You were so lost to me; you were so far away
We couldn't find common ground or too much to say

You're coming back home where I want you to be
You're coming back home; and I know there's uncertainty
You're coming back home; 
You're coming back home to me

We had our differences, and you know we always will
All of the consequences, baby, they won't go away until
You turn your mind around and you make the choice
To turn your life around and raise your voice

You're coming back home where I want you to be
You're coming back home; but I want you to see
You're coming back home&ldots;you're coming back home to me

Don't let the past whisper to you
Don't let the ghosts come through your door
Don't let the echoes haunt you any more

Come back home where you want to be
You're coming back home; I know there's uncertainty
You're coming back home; where I want you to be
You're coming back home;you're coming back home to me

The sun went down beyond the rim 
And I long to feel the desert wind on my skin
What will this day give me but rain, 
And my mother's earth, she falls, she falls to shame

Lay upon me, night and day
Feed my hunger, oh make me stay

Man shall take her beauty's eye, 
Unhappy plaids they fill, they fill the skies
But if you turn your waters wild, 
I'll drown my sorrow for a little while

Lay upon me, night and day
Feed my hunger, oh make me stay
And the cries of angels will rescue me, 
The cries of angels are gonna wash me clean

Never lose the need to be held by something; 
I never want to see you bleed or be left for nothing

Now there's no Jesus to walk on your water blue, 
There's no redemption unless it's inside of you
All your lovers, they've gone, they've gone away
You ain't got nothin' left to do but get on your knees, and pray

Lay upon me, night and day
Feed my hunger, oh make me stay
And the cries of angels will rescue you, 
The cries of angels are gonna see you through
Cries of angels, cries of angels, cries of angels hear you

EXPOSURE
©2006 Carey Colvin (p)Raspberry Sun Music (BMI)

Oh, I want to write, but I don't know what to say; 
I feel so exposed that I just want to run away
Run away and hide just for a little while
This is what I wanted, but I think I'm in denial

'Cause it's right here in my face and I don't like it very much
It's like a bony finger reaching out to touch me 
In the very soul of who I've come to be
I think I liked it better when I'm a mystery

But, hey, here I am and I guess I have to learn to 
Take on all the glory and patch up all the burns
They'll come around, I know it; I can see them there
I think I liked it better hiding on the stair

Yes, it's right here in my face and I don't like the glare
It haunts me like the ghost of a burning red-hot flare

I know I should be brave and I should gather it all up 
Into a little place where I can drink it from a cup
Instead of drowning in this barrel of solitary fear
I should be glad of this
I should be glad of this
I should be glad of this 
But it's so invasively near

It's funny when you get what you're wishing for, 
You think it will be easy but it opens up a door
And I think I liked it better when all the locks were thrown
They kept me safe and warm when I was alone

So I stand here front and center, shaking at the knees, 
Hoping that you understand this is only me
I'm just like the rest of you, holding on to dreams, 
And holding on to everything between 

It's right here in my face and I don't like the glare
It haunts me like the ghost of a burning red-hot flare

But this is what I wanted, all the world to see, 
I just didn't realize that you'd be looking into me
All I'm really doing is holding onto dreams
All I'm really doing is holding onto dreams
Holding onto dreams

INSIDE THE BLUE
©2006 Carey Colvin (p)Raspberry Sun Music (BMI)

Well she hit this wall going full steam ahead; 
She should have seen it coming 
She knew that curve was there; she just kept on running
All she wanted was to find herself standing right next to you, 
But she fell to the earth and she kept on falling through
She just wanted to dream this dream with you

She just wanted to get there; she just wanted to go through
She just wanted to touch that sky and get lost inside the blue
She just wanted to dream this dream with you

She rolled over and found herself all the way on the other side
Now she's got to get back up and put herself in stride
Put her feet on solid ground and keep straight on ahead
Keep in mind those loving words you said 

She just wanted to get there; she just wanted to go through
She just wanted to touch that sky and get lost inside the blue
She just wanted to dream this dream with you

She'll find a way back home, if she has to walk
She can stand the blisters, baby, if you can stand the talk

She will get there; yes, she will get through
She will touch the sky and get lost inside the blue
She will dream this dream with you
She will come alive inside the blue

IT'S ALL RIGHT
©2006 Carey Colvin and Granger Helvey (p)Raspberry Sun Music (BMI)

A father's hand to hold you up, a father's smile to brighten yours
Turn the pages of the years to make it through this door
For in this history you see faces gazing from the past,
Pictures lined up in a frame of times that always last

And it's all right to cry; it's all right to wonder why, 
It's all right to say goodbye

For the brightest ones of all shine in the mirror's frame
The legacy of this man are the ones who bear his name
From the angels' wings you'll hear the heartbeat of his love
From the heavens down to you when times seem so rough

And it's all right to cry; it's all right to wonder why, 
It's all right to say goodbye

Time will ease these desperate hours and bring him home to you
You'll reach the other side one day, but now you're going through

And the brightest ones of all shine in the mirror's frame
The children that reflect, the ones who still remain, 
These three pearls of his refrain

And it's all right to cry; it's all right to wonder why, 
It's all right to say goodbye
It's all right to say goodbye

LET IT FLOW
©2006 Carey Colvin (p)Raspberry Sun Music (BMI)

It's a cold stone; it's a heavy weight,
It's an evil tide that floods this gate
I don't care, wash over me; let it flow 
I thought I could, I think I can,
Right now I don't understand
I don't care, lie to me; let it flow

If I could, I'd wish for this; if I could, I'd run away
If I could, I'd ask you to tell me why I feel this way

'Cause it's a loose rope, it's a tight space; 
Do I want to run this race? 
I don't care, run over me; let it flow
It's a sharp rock; it's a pebbled path; 
Sometimes it's a belly laugh
I don't care, walk with me; let it flow

If I could, I'd wish for this; if I could, I'd run away
If I could, I'd ask you to tell me why I feel this way

Little spaces here inside are empty now; 
Little races with the tide just cut me down
Cut me down and make me bleed
Baby, can you bandage me?

'Cause it's a hard road; it's a hurricane, 
Do you even know my name?
I don't care, come with me; let it flow
Yeah, it's a hard road; it's a free dance, 
You bare your soul for just a chance
I don't care, dance with me; let it flow
I don't care, come dance with me; let it flow

LITTLE BLIND FISH

Little blind fish in a wide river
Sayin', who is the gift and who is the giver?
Is it a matter of choice where you go?  
Does it give you a voice just to know?
You're here, you're here,
That you're here

Little blind fish staring at a mirror, 
Saying how far can you see, are you getting any nearer?
Little blind bird, sitting in a tree 
Singing this is the end now, can't you see?
It's all gone, solid gone
It's all gone, solid gone

Little blind fox, sitting in a box 
Saying this is an open space and it has no locks
Tattered old lion lying' in a cage, 
Bit off his own leg in a rage
In a rage,
In a rage; in a rage

Little blind fish in a wide river, 
Sayin', who is the gift and who is the giver?
Is it a matter of choice where you go?  
Does it give you a voice just to know?
You're here,
You're here

LOVE HAVE MERCY
©2006 Carey Colvin and Granger Helvey (p)Raspberry Sun Music (BMI)

Hit another speed bump, thought things were going fine, 
'Cause I've got your heart; you've got mine
Baby, you're the one I really trust, 
You'd think love would have mercy on us

We've been trying hard to navigate the ups and downs of love; 
Every now and then things can be a little tough
There's a hole in my pocket and a world in flux, 
You'd think love would have mercy on us

You'd think love would have some mercy, give us both a chance, 
To hold on and let us do our dance
Love should pave the way 'stead of buckling up the road, 
I won't go anywhere without your hand to hold

Yeah, we could hang it up, and go our separate ways, 
But that would be too easy and I am here to stay
Honey, I won't make a fuss, 
You'd think love would have mercy on us

I believe in love, I believe in you, 
If love will have some mercy, then we can make it through
'Cause baby, we've been through enough, 
Let's hope love will have mercy on us
Well, honey, you're the one I trust, 
Let's hope love will have mercy 
Yeah, darlin', we've been through enough, 
Let's hope love will have mercy on us

PENNY TO MY NAME
©1991 Roger Henderson (BMI) (p)Blix Street Music (ASCAP) 
Used by permission

Bill and I got married following our firstborn,
Daddy left this gas and convenience store just before he died
And I was only nineteen when I had my third baby
Sometimes I think maybe I should have left here long ago

Travelers are stopping by; check their oil and their P.S.I.,
Gas up and away they fly, movin' down the line
But this beat up truck and worn out shoes
Always giving me the blues, 
Billy's suckin' down the booze nearly every night

I never seen the city lights, how they must shine so bright
Not like this country night, the sky's black as coal
And in this gas station mountain home,
Not a thing to call my own
How I wish I was alone with a penny to my name

Strangers say this mountain here is beautiful beyond compare
But it's just a dumb old mountain there, I see it every day
If I could see sunset skies, over fields of grain or ocean tides
A city skyline in the night, I'd be dancing 'til the dawn

I never seen the city lights, how they must shine so bright
Not like this country night, the sky's black as coal
And in this gas station mountain home,
Not a thing to call my own
How I wish I was alone with a penny to my name

Bill and I got married following our first born,
Daddy let this gas and convenience store just before he died
Maybe Bill and I someday will find a chance to get away
Until then it's here I'll stay, wishing on a star

I never seen the city lights, how they must shine so bright
Not like this country night, the sky's black as coal
And in this gas station mountain home,
Not a thing to call my own
How I wish I was alone with a penny to my name

TEN THOUSAND ARROWS
©2006 Carey Colvin (p)Raspberry Sun Music (BMI)

I don't fit in to this puzzle, but the pieces slide into place for you
I've tried but I can't seem to change my point of view
I carry around this burden that you, you tell me to ignore
But ten thousand arrows have pierced my heart before

And I watch the arrows flying; I hear the silence grow
It's not for a lack of trying, but a lack of what I know

If I could I'd pack up these feelings into a little blue box
Put them high on a hard-to-reach shelf
Where you can barely reach the top
I'd leave them there to wither; I'd wait for them to die
Listening for the echo of this silent urge to cry

And I watch the arrows flying; I feel them pierce my skin
I try to shine up my armor, but the steel is much too thin

So I carry around this burden that I cannot ignore
Hiding in the stillness from the wolf outside my door
And ten thousand arrows have pierced my heart before
Ten thousand arrows have pierced my heart before

BLACKTOP
©1997 Carey Colvin (p)Raspberry Sun Music (BMI)

I got a bottle of water with bubbles inside
I get a little thirsty on this long, hot ride
Something inside me tugs at the road
Sweet solitude and somewhere to go

White lines, headlights, blacktop's fine
Up on the hill is a neon sign
Outskirts, city limits, out the other side
I'm going somewhere in my own sweet time

I get excited with wind in my hair
Got the radio on and an inflatable spare
Window's down and my foot's on the gas
I'm going somewhere and I'm going there fast

Hit another rest stop, pull in for a while,
The guy at the gas pump gives me a smile
Look over my shoulder and give him a wave
I'm going somewhere and I'm going today

I get excited with wind in my hair
Got the radio on and an inflatable spare
Window's down and my foot's on the gas
I'm going somewhere and I'm going there fast

Which way shall I go, head out where the wind blows
This way, that way, any way at all
Doesn't matter which way, doesn't matter any way,
When I hear the wind call

Well, I get excited with wind in my hair
Got the radio on and an inflatable spare
Window's down and my foot's on the gas
I'm going somewhere and I'm going there fast

I got a bottle of water with bubbles inside
I get a little thirsty on this long, hot ride
Something inside me tugs at the road
Sweet solitude and somewhere to go

THIN LINE
©1998 Carey Colvin (p)Raspberry Sun Music  (BMI)

There's been a change, but I don't care
You can have the fame; I'll keep the clothes to wear
There's something wrong with this thin line
You can cross it if you want to, but I don't have the time

Yeah it's a thin line, it's a balance beam
When it's life on the edge, sometimes you split the seams
It's a thin line when you live your dreams
So go on, baby, do your thing

I don't mind the echo, except when it's in my ear
It's a little too much when you stand so near
There's been a change, I've seen it coming now
I didn't like the way that it all went down

Yeah it's a thin line, it's a balance beam
When it's life on the edge, sometimes you split the seams
It's a thin line when you live your dreams
So go on, baby, do your thing

You can have it all, but you can't have me
You can make the call and get what you need
You can have it all but you can't have, 
No, you can't have me

Yeah it's a thin line, it's a balance beam
When it's life on the edge, sometimes you split the seams
It's a thin line when you live your dreams
So go on, baby, do your thing
(it's a) Thin line, it's a balance beam
When it's life on the edge, sometimes you split the seams
It's a thin line when you live your dreams
So go on, baby, do your thing

BEACH TOWN
©1994 Carey Colvin (p)Raspberry Sun Music (BMI)

When I left these drifting sands, 
I never meant to stay away
Didn't turn out like I planned,
Somehow things got out of hand
But I'll be back again someday to this beach town

You know he broke my world apart, 
I've never, ever been the same
He shattered, scattered all the sparks 
That he started in my heart
But a part of me remains in this beach town

My heart lies in the sugar sands
Where emerald waters tease the land
In the wild and sultry summer nights
I was riding in the wind, calls me back again

I returned to memories, 
To people that were on my mind
Stood out in the ocean breeze 
And listened to the harmonies
Of seagulls singing in the sky in this beach town

My heart lies in the sugar sands
Where emerald waters tease the land
In the wild and sultry summer nights
I was riding in the wind, calls me back again

SUNRISE IN YOUR EYES
© 1986 Carey Colvin (p)Raspberry Sun Music (BMI)

Evening starlight fading, you're holding me so tight
You've reached down and touched my soul
You kiss me with a sleepy smile, 
I've never been held like this before

When I've got you by my side, this world looks better
And I don't know why you make me feel this way
But somehow the sun looked so much brighter
When I woke up in your arms today

When you're lying next to me, I feel so good
I feel like I've got wings to fly the skies
Something, it makes me want to love you
When I see the sunrise in your eyes

Early morning sunbeams, they woke me from my dreams
And touched your face in the dawning light
Sunshine came and found me 
With the man who held me through the night&ldots;
With the man who held me through the night

When you're lying next to me, I feel so good
I feel like I've got wings to fly the skies
Something, it makes me want to love you
When I see the sunrise in your eyes&ldots;
When I see the sunrise in your eyes

SOFT SIDE OF ME
© 1994  Carey Colvin (p)Raspberry Sun Music (BMI)

How can I turn to you, you're not the key
I'm lost in the throes of my uncertainty
You came to me, but I let you in
Should've turned you away, not let this begin
But I melt in your fire, it's the passion I need,
Oh, baby, you touch the soft side of me

Well, I feel a hunger in the depths of my soul
Think to myself, "don't lose your control"
Splintered and shattered, alone in the night
Oh, baby, can this be right?
Oh, baby, will you hold me tonight?

We're tangled in passion; I want you so bad
We wrestle our hearts over loves we have had
Don't let me love you; I'll never break free
Oh, baby, you touch the soft side of me
Oh, baby, you touch the soft side of me
You touch the, you touch the soft side of me

THE DISTANCE WALL
©1998 Carey Colvin & Granger Helvey (p) Raspberry Sun Music (BMI)
You and I, we have our reasons for this distance wall
The footing still holds solid, but there are ghosts inside these halls
I can feel the tension building, I can't seem to break the ice
Something's keeping me from taking my own advice

Can I surrender my heart to you
Can we reach the other side of this attitude
Can we love like we used to do
Would you remember if I needed you

If I could find the answer, I would know the truth
I chased it down so many roads in my reckless youth
I don't mean to shut you out, you know I want to let you in
But time just makes it harder and I can't seem to begin

To surrender my heart to you
To reach the other side of this attitude
To love like we used to do
Would you remember if I needed you

The silence roars like thunder, and the road that was so smooth
Is filled with rocks and boulders that trip my every move
And the echoes in the hallway make me scared to pass the door
All the boards are creaking when I'm walking on this floor

Well I used to be so brave, I'd go charging right on in
Now I don't know what to say to let you come back in

So I keep walking down this hall, fighting all these ghosts
That keep trying to trip me up when it's you I love the most
Maybe just a little patience is the answer we both need
If I believe in you, and if you believe in me

I would surrender my heart to you
We could reach the other side of this attitude
We could love like we used to do
You would remember if I needed you
Yeah, you would remember if I needed you

REFUGEE
© 1997 Carey Colvin (p) Raspberry Sun Music (BMI)

I am just a refugee, I have nothing left
I tried so hard to hold on to the heart I thought was best
Now we're running wild, and there's no one here to tame
The reckless souls that turned the other way

I am just a refugee, straggling down the road
Wondering at the circumstance that cut me off so cold
Standing at the crossroads, we went our different ways
You in desperation, and me, I cannot say

So I'm riding down the highway, I'm walking on the line
On the edge of inspiration, on the borderline

I know we're only human, but it cannot be excused
We put each other through such desperate abuse
We wrestled and we wrangled, we talked into the night
But no matter what we said, it still just wasn't right

I could've stayed in heaven, but to me it was a hell
And all the angels' wings, they didn't serve me well

So I'm riding down the highway, I'm walking on the line
On the edge of inspiration, on the borderline
Yes, I'm riding down the highway, I'm walking on the line
On the edge of inspiration, on the borderline
On the borderline&ldots;

FRAGILE HEARTS
©1994 Carey Colvin (p)Raspberry Sun Music (BMI)

We sat in the darkness by the empty bar
Spilling all the feelings in our fragile hearts
You told me you need to be alone,
You didn't tell me anything I didn't know

So I went home and cried myself to sleep
Over love inside your arms you won't let me keep
Oh, but I have seen the fear inside your eyes
Reflected in the tears that live in mine

So I will hold my heart away from you 
If that's what you want me to do
I will hold the love I feel so deep inside
And I won't let you see me when I cry

I know you hold my love so close to you
You know I hold your gentle heart so closely, too
Oh, but your confusion's drowning me
I only want your loving arms surrounding me

So sometime in the night when you're alone
Or in the crowded bars and by a telephone
Call me if you have a smile to share
Call me just to let me know that you're still there

And I will hold my heart away from you
If that's what you want me to do
I will hold the love I feel so deep inside
And I won't let you see me when I cry
I will hold the softness of your gentle eyes
And I won't let you see me when I cry

I WOULD GIVE ANYTHING
©1997 Carey Colvin (p)Raspberry Sun Music (BMI)

There's not a complicated moment that doesn't run my life,
There's not another cry for time that I can ignore tonight
I'm longing for a lifeline, a little solitude
Just a moment in the sun with you

I can hear the thunder, I can smell the rain,
There's nothing i'd like better than to hold you close again
But people tugging at me don't leave too much to spare,
Sometimes you will find me just pulling out my hair

Used to be just you and me, time complicates the lines
I long for just a little peace with you in my arms
Listening to the crickets sing, I would give anything

I've got this kid tugging at me; that one wants me, too
I feel just like that woman who made a house out of a shoe
I want a little glory, just a little time,
Just a moment in the sun that's mine.....

I watch my hands age, listen to the angels' rage,
I watch the clouds go by, I watch the time fly; I can't catch it....

Used to be just you and me, time complicates the lines
I long for just a little peace with you in my arms
Listening to the crickets sing, I would give anything

GURU BLUES
© 1995 Carey Colvin (p)Raspberry Sun Music (BMI)

I was just seventeen, didn't know anything
Thought I could change the world with your love around me
I didn't know back then how time could change a man
I was a foolish girl, thought love would surround me

You came and went your way and I waited most every day
Listening for the sound of your car in the drive
But you were in Newport News, playing the guru blues
Spouting your wisdom to the stars in the sky

You changed my life, it seemed; I saw you in every dream
I lived for the moment when you'd come around
But it was only a fairy tale that didn't turn out too well
It crumbled to ashes and it fell to the ground

Like the face of the summer moon, you waxed and you waned
You'd blow in like a gust of wind, then blow right back out again, 
Chasing your fortune and your fame

I'm older and wiser now and you're somewhere in the south
Catering parties and living your life
And I'm happy where I am, in the arms of a loving man
Surrounded by children and the music I write

But somewhere in time there is the magic of your first kiss
I loved with abandon, with stars in my eyes
And it makes a nice memory, our moments in history
Will be with me all of my life

And like the face of the summer moon, I light up the night
The sound of my children's play fills up my every day
And I've found the man to love all of my life

I was just seventeen, I thought I knew everything
I was grasping at moments that i never could hold
But time has a way, it seems, of sorting out what love means
And of telling us which way we should go

GULF OF MEXICO
©1994 Carey Colvin (p)Raspberry Sun Music (BMI)

Back when I was just nineteen, and running with the flow
I had a little two-room house on the Gulf of Mexico
With beaches like white sugar right in my back yard
The moon played on the water while I played my guitar

My heart lives on the Gulf of Mexico
And I still have my old beat up blue jeans
Every now and then, my heart remembers when
And the Gulf of Mexico lives in my dreams

I played the local music scene, singing beach town songs
Dancing in the neon lights until the break of dawn
Now I sit in rush hour traffic just to work inside all day
I would have laughed at you back then 
If you'd've said I'd live this way

My heart lives on the Gulf of Mexico
And I still have my old beat up blue jeans
Every now and then, this old heart remembers when
And the Gulf of Mexico lives in my dreams

TALK TO ME
©1984 Carey Colvin (p)Raspberry Sun Music (BMI)

Somebody talk to me, let me share your feelings
Oh talk to me, you know my head is reeling
Somebody talk to me, I don't know what I'm saying
Oh talk to me, my heart is overtaken
Listen to me, I don't know who to turn to
Please talk to me, I don't wanna hurt you, 
Just want you to talk to me about the way you're living
Oh talk to me about the love you've given

Oh listen to me, I'm anxious for a friend
Somebody talk to me, I don't care where you begin 
If only you will talk to me, I need an ear to hear me
Oh talk to me, I need someone near me
Oh listen to me, I promise no rejections
Just talk to me, I need some affection 

Listen to me, I need to let myself out
Just talk to me, I don't care what about 
If only you will talk to me
Can't you see, I need to be needed
Listen to me, do you see how I see it?

Talk to me, it's so lonely out tonight, 
Just talk to me, I know then I'll be all right 
If only you will talk to me

Talk to me, talk to me, talk to me
