Track Name: Monument
Wake up and put your uniform on
Hardshelled hat and heavy duty gloves
And please be careful out there, darlin’
Building bridges is a brave man’s work

You know one day you’ll be in history
People will walk upon the steel you mold
Things like these they just don’t fall apart
No matter how fragile and how old

And our children will carry on
What you started here today
And I know everyone involved
Will have nothing but good things to say
About the monument
We built for them

Don’t worry there, it’s an easy job
And I’ll be home before you know
All I need is my kerosene torch
With your love I can’t go wrong

Where I stand I see the sun come up
Across the water it fills my soul
I tell you, dear, the bridge is strong
And someday you’ll see what I saw

And our children will carry on
What you started here today
And I know everyone involved
Will have nothing but good things to say
About the monument
We built for them
About
The monument
We built for them
Track Name: Not Right Now
Woke up this mornin’ and you weren’t around
Somebody told me that they tore you down
And there ain’t no one left
To cut you any slack

All outta cigarettes
Yeah, you’re flat broke
Finally told you this was all a joke
And they’re laughin’ at you
Behind your back

I wanna love you but I don’t know how
I wanna change just not right now
I wanna love you but I don’t know how
I wanna change just not right now

Kick you down, build you up
Into somethin’ you are not
We could leave without a trace
But I know you won’t

I don’t mind
If you stay
I can’t help but feel this way
I’m leavin’ tonight
Even if you don’t

I wanna love you but I don’t know how
I wanna change just not right now
I wanna love you but I don’t know how
I wanna change just not right now

It’s gettin’ late now honey I’ve got to go
A little whiskey and a couple more shows
Crossin’ bridges and some railroad tracks
The difference this time is I ain’t comin’ back

I wanna love you but I don’t know how
I wanna change just not right now
I wanna love you but I don’t know how
I wanna change just not right now

I wanna love you but I don’t know how
I wanna change just not right now
I wanna love you but I don’t know how
I wanna change just not right now
Track Name: Songbird
In a house on a hill
Lived a woman who had finally learned to sit still
Growing up, you couldn’t keep her feet on the ground
But she found a songbird that finally settled her down

Now she sits in the house and prays
While the songbird’s out building bridges all day
So soon they can leave the house where it is
With every mile, said the songbird, I will give you a kiss
From me, from me, from me, from me

But she sits at the window and cries
Crystals fall heavy out of the lids of her eyes
Because she thinks someday she will root like a tree
And when the songbird goes, she won’t be able to be
With him, with him, with him, him, with him, him, him

But a bridge outta sticks won’t be strong
And one day soon an iron man will come along
He will build a bridge strong outta steel
And humble the songbird will fly away from the hill
From here, from here, from here, here, from here, from here
Track Name: Water Wide
I once was a noble king
You remember well
You never lacked for anything
Until the fortune fell

Fortune is a fickle friend
A fickle enemy as well
And heaven knew not so many leagues
From the precipice of hell

Don’t you leave me stranded here
On the other side
Won’t you lead me to your shore
Over water wide
All my love
Water wide
Water wide
All my love
Water wide

And if you were to stay with me
I would rise again
And to our love I would erect
An immortal monument

Without a word being ever heard
It would sing of all your treasures
It would open wide and let inside
Ships laden for your pleasure

Don’t you leave me stranded here
As so many have
My faithful man disbanded here
Left for distant lands
All my love
Distant lands
Distant lands
All my love
Distant lands

Don’t you leave me stranded here
On the other side
Won’t you lead me to your shore
Over water wide
All my love
Water wide
Water wide
All my love
Water wide
Track Name: Concrete And Steel
Jane Wiedlin, Early Thomas
Track Name: Leavin' It All Behind
When I just wanna throw it all away
In my ride on the way up to the bay

Where the highway’s goin’
Where the wind is blowin’
Now at last I know
Where I wanna go

And I’m feelin’ like I’m leavin’ it all behind me
And it’s all so far away
All the way up here
Nothin’ to remind me
And I’m finally on my way

Things just got so hey out of hand
Need a change
Everything’s just the same to me, to me

But now I’m feelin’ stronger
‘Cause I’m headed for it
Now it won’t be long
And now I’m on my way

Now I’m feelin’ like I’m leavin’ it all behind me
And it’s all so far away
All the way up here
Nothin’ to remind me
And I’m finally on my way

Yeah
Now I’m feelin’ like I’m leavin’ it all behind me
And it’s all so far away
All the way up here
Nothin’ to remind me
And I’m finally on my way

And I’m finally on my way
And I’m finally on my way
And I’m finally on my way
Track Name: Silver Span
The cardboard box
That they made for us
It is not a home
Plastic beams just hold it up
And tear cathedrals down

Pay no mind to the wrecking ball
It’s not there at all
They all came just to watch it fall
There’s no wrecking ball

I can see silver span in the sun
Can’t you see silver span in the sun

There’s the suit that sold her out
With a breezy smile
He would trade all the time away
For a nickel and a dime

We’re pounding nails into the tires
And the trucks stood still
When they send another, we’ll do the same
We hold our breath and dodge the cars
Whoa
We’ll jump the rail into the stars

I can see silver span in the sun
Can’t you see silver span in the sun

Can’t you see silver span in the sun
Can’t you see silver span in the sun
Track Name: Door County Girl
When you hold me, baby, I feel like a bird sittin’ in your hand
And even when I don’t say nothin’, you still understand
And after everything I’ve done
You still tell me I’m the one

But I know I’d be nothin’ if it wasn’t for my
Door County girl
Keep me in your world
Door County girl

I come home and you’re still up
You know I’m feeling blue
Whiskey in a coffee cup
A cigarette for two

We’ll walk outside, the moon is bright
The steel bridge is bathed in light
And I know everything’s alright

When I’m with my
Door County girl
Keep me in your world
Door County girl
Keep me in your world

All the pain and all the fears
All the bruises and all the tears
Well they just disappear

Darlin’ when I hold you near
And all I ever want is to be here right now

Door County girl
Keep me in your world
Door County girl
Keep me in your world

Door County girl
Keep me in your world
Door County girl
Track Name: Judy Loves The Bridge / Waitin' For The Bridge
Ever since Judy was a kid
Judy, Judy, Judy, Judy loved the bridge
Now they wanna take it away
And I can’t hear my Judy say
“Don’t take, take, take my bridge away
Take, take, take, take, take it today
Don’t take my bridge away”

Johnny pulled up
Traffic got stuck
Sittin’ there waitin’ in his old pickup
Lit a cigarette
Kinda lost his head
Then he started screamin’
This is what he said
He’s waitin’ for the bridge, waitin’ for the bridge, waitin’ for the bridge
Waitin’ for the bridge, waitin’ for the bridge, waitin’ for the bridge
Yeah let’s go

I hate to see my Judy cry
So please, please, please, please tell me why
Why the bridge had to go
Tell me why ‘cause I need to know
Don’t take, take, take my bridge away
Take, take, take, take, take it today
Don’t take my bridge away

Jeanne was stopped
Got into her car
Headin’ downtown to the Nautical Bar
Bangin’ on the dashboard
Beatin’ on a drum
Screamin’ in the front seat
Coughin’ up a lung
She’s waitin’ for the bridge, waitin’ for the bridge, waitin’ for the bridge
Waitin’ for the bridge, waitin’ for the bridge, waitin’ for the bridge

Judy loves the bridge
Judy loves the bridge
Judy, Judy, Judy, Judy, Judy loves the bridge
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh oh
Don’t take my bridge away

Mister James Brown
Comin’ through town
In a green Cadillac with the top pulled down
Gotta make the show
Really gotta go
I don’t gotta tell you
‘Cause everybody knows
He’s waitin’ for the bridge, waitin’ for the bridge, waitin’ for the bridge
Waitin’ for the bridge, waitin’ for the bridge, waitin’ for the bridge
Waitin’ for the bridge, waitin’ for the bridge, waitin’ for the bridge
Waitin’ for the, waitin’ for the uh

Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh oh
Don’t take my bridge away
Don’t take, take, take my bridge away
Take, take, take, take, take it today
Don’t take my bridge away
Don’t take my bridge away

Waitin’ for the bridge, waitin’ for the bridge, waitin’ for the bridge, waitin’ for the bridge, waitin’ for the bridge

Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh oh
Don’t take my bridge away
Don’t take my bridge away

Waitin’ for the bridge, waitin’ for the bridge, waitin’ for the bridge
Track Name: There Is An Answer
Man has the power
To raise a bridge made of steel and stone
Oh man has the power
To wade into the water all alone

Only love can heal the heart that’s broken
And turn this hurting planet back as one
Only God can build a bridge in my heart
Strong enough to carry me back home

Oh man has the power
To raise a bridge made of steel and stone
Oh man has the power
To wade into the water all alone

Only love can heal the heart that’s broken
And turn this hurting planet back as one
Only God can build a bridge in my heart
Strong enough to carry me back home

There is an answer
There is an answer
There is an answer
There is an answer

Only God can build a bridge in my heart
Strong enough to carry me back home
Track Name: Deal With The Devil
You don’t have to make a deal with the devil
You don’t have to make a deal with the devil
To get what you want
To get what you want

That money you want
What does it really buy
That woman you want
She’s only gonna make me cry

And it’s the God that you want
And I’ll tell you why
You just have to pray, just pray
‘Til you don’t want it quite so much
Just pray, just pray
‘Til you don’t want it quite so much
Just pray, just pray
‘Til you don’t
Want it quite so much

You don’t have to take a deal with the devil
You don’t have to take a deal with the devil
To get what you want
To get what you want

That something you need
It’s only gonna sting you
That fame that you seek
What’s it gonna win you

And it’s the peace that you want
And it’s the love within you
It’s the love within you
You just have to pray, to pray
‘Til you don’t want it just so much
Just pray, just pray
‘Til you don’t need it quite so much
Just pray, just pray
‘Til you don’t need it quite so much
Just pray, just pray
‘Til you don’t
Need it quite so much
No you don’t
Need it quite so much

It’s the love within you (x8)
Track Name: C'est Noye
Il y a de l'eau autour de moi
et sous le pont je m'assoie
toutes les heures le pont se leve
et les bateaux vivent leurs reves

Et ils nagent, comme des poissons
sans frontiere, sur cette terre ronde
sur la mer, il y a le vent, le soleil
et si j'ai du mal, c'est noye, c'est noye

Je vais sauter sur un bateau
hisse ces voiles allez go,
defais les noeuds qui me retiennent,
prends le volant capitaine

Et je nage, comme un poisson
sans frontiere, sur cette terre ronde
sur la mer, il y a le vent, le soleil
et si j'ai du mal, c'est noye, c'est noye
Track Name: Mistress Of The Devil
I’ve been the mistress of the devil
Ever since you came around
And I’ve been in and outta trouble
And it’s all around the town

When you told me you’d never leave me
You were nowhere to be found
Now I’m standin’ on the steel bridge
Lookin’ up and down here for a fight

And there’s a whiskey river flowin’
Let it carry me away into the night
Only a soldier can save me
But there’s no soldier in sight

You left me stranded on the drawbridge again
I’m tryin’ to find a way but you won’t let me in
If this was made of wood I’d burn the whole thing down
Maybe you might notice me when I’m not around

You left me stranded on the drawbridge again
I’m tryin’ to find a way but you won’t let me in
If this was made of wood I’d burn the whole thing down
Maybe you might notice me when I’m not around

So I’m the mistress of the devil
And it was all part of the plan
And I must stay with him forever
Oh, he’s the only one who understands

When I needed someone to save me
Oh, he was the only one lovin’ man
Track Name: Too Long
I’m old and I’m rusty
Been called a monstrosity
I’m old and I’m rusty
I been called a monstrosity
Worn out and I’m tired
I’m not what I used to be
Been neglected and abused now for so long
Even when I’m feelin’ alright
There’s somethin’ wrong
No matter what I do
Some people wanna tear me down
No matter what I do
Some people wanna tear me down
I don’t know what happened
I used to be the talk of town
My heart’s cold as steel
I don’t give a damn about you
My heart’s as cold as steel
I don’t give a damn about you
Just gonna keep doing my own thing
No matter what you do
Track Name: Spinning
What must I do to leave this place
There’s no road that I can see
No rivers, no bridges, just empty space
Nothing to rescue me

I’m spinning
Just spinning
Even gravity can’t hold me down
I’m spinning
Just spinning

Lights in the distance
Are they up or down
Remember a time when I cared
I’m better off drifting on my own
So much safer here

Spinning
Just spinning
Even gravity can’t hold me down
I’m spinning
Just spinning

There’s a smile on my face
So sweet is the taste of love
There’s a smile on my face
So sweet is the taste of love
There’s a smile on my face
So sweet is the taste of love
There’s a smile on my face
So sweet is the taste of love
There’s a smile on my face
So sweet is the taste of love
There’s a smile on my face
So sweet is the taste of love
There’s a smile on my face
So sweet is the taste of love
There’s a smile on my face
So sweet is the taste of love
There’s a smile on my face
So sweet is the taste of love
