1. Don’t Let the Sun Go Down © 2001
Brenda Freed, Val Roessling,

I like watching a late movie at home
I like talking on the telephone
I want my coffee
with sugar and cream
I wanna sit on my porch and dream
I want space all around me
I crave simplicity

And I won’t let the sun go down
without saying I love
Won’t let the sun go down
without saying I love

I like finding faces in clouds
I like being not one of the crowd
I like a good laugh
with just a few friends
I like not knowing what’s at the end
I like cloth napkins with every meal
And I expect the best things in life to be real

And I won’t let the sun go down
without saying I love
Won’t let the sun go down
without saying I love

I like the sound of a bright starry night
I like the scream of a child’s delight
I wanna feel the warm sun on my skin
I wanna go where I’ve never been
I want the freedom to play with my time
And I’ve learned to live on a dime

And I won’t let the sun go down
without saying I love
Won’t let the sun go down
without saying I love
Won’t let the sun go down
without saying I love
Don’t let the sun go down
without saying I love
Don’t let the sun go down
without saying I love
Don’t let the sun go down
Don’t let the sun go down
without saying I love

2. Smilin’ Inside © 2001

Do I look blue? Maybe I’m not cryin’
Do I look sad? It’s no alibi
That I don’t worry, don’t you know
Maybe I’m smilin’ inside

My happiness
don’t take too much tryin’
When I seem so far away
just remember why
If I don’t always let it show
Maybe I’m smilin’ inside

Just like a choo choo train
doesn’t always whistle
Mockin’ bird in an oak tree
doesn’t always sing, sing, sing
I’m a thoughtful one,
if I don’t roll on the floor all the time
Maybe I’m smilin’ inside

Do I look blue? You know
I might be grinnin’
Do I look sad? You better look again
Cause I don’t worry, don’t ya know
Maybe I’m smilin’ inside

Just like a choo choo train doesn’t always whistle
Mockin’ bird in an oak tree doesn’t always sing, sing, sing
I’m a thoughtful one,
if I don’t roll on the floor all the time
Maybe I’m smilin’ inside

Do I look blue? You know
I might not be grinnin’
Do I look sad?
Well ya better look again
Cuz I don’t worry, don’t you know
Maybe I’m smilin’ inside
Maybe I’m smilin’ inside
Maybe I’m smilin’ inside

3. You’ll Never Know © 1998
Brenda Freed & Bob Clark,
Moondance Treasures Music Publishing, BMI

Early morning as the sun rose
We walked to the river
without our clothes
Stood on the banks of the Blanco
Watched the pale moon go.

As the morning sky turned blue
I confess I did too
There was really nothing you could do
Some walls you can’t break through

Chorus

You’ll never know what you’ve found
‘Til the walls come falling down
You’ll never know until daylight
What was lost in the dark of night

The night was short,
our love was sweet
You really knocked me off my feet
How much was truth?
How much deceit?
Was that a trick, or was it a treat?

Sometimes the fear grows so strong
I don’t know what went wrong
Why with the coming dawn
I missed you before you were gone

Chorus

4. My Mind is Dirty © 2001
JB Braden,
Moondance Treasures Music Publishing, BMI

I see the sun, I see the moon
But I can’t get to them like
I can’t get to you
Why do you treat me so mean
Mmmmm honey, my mind is dirty
but my hands are clean

I’d like to get right next to you
I’m tired of thinkin’ about it,
now I wanna do
When will the light turn green
Ooh baby, my mind is dirty
but my hands are clean

My mind is dirty
but my hands are clean
Got some big hair,
you can make me scream
You don’t think I can be true
At least at night I’ll be true to you
In all the world I’ve never found
Someone I’d rather
put my arms around
Mmm honey, I ain’t as bad as I seem
Ooh baby, my mind is dirty
but my hands are clean

My mind is dirty
but my hands are clean
I got some big hair,
you can make me scream
You don’t think I can be true
At least at night I’ll be true to you

In all the world I’ve never found
Someone I’d rather
put my arms around
Hey baby, I ain’t as bad as I seem
Mmm honey, my mind is dirty
but my hands are clean
Mmm baby, my mind is dirty
Ooh honey, my mind is dirty
but my hands are clean

5. Ships © 1999
JB Braden,
Moondance Treasures Music Publishing, BMI

Would you tell me you love me again
It melts my heart
Would you tell me again and again
True love never dies

Ships go out, sail to sea
Some return,
and some are lost as I would be
Lost as I would be, lost as I would be
Just as I would be without your love

If you tell me you love me again
I would sing for you
Only love songs forever and then
Just say good-bye

Ships go out, sail to sea
Some return,
and some are lost as I would be
Lost as I would be, lost as I would be
Just as I would be without your love

6. My Human Loves Me © 2001

Brenda Freed, Val Roessling, JB Braden
Moondance Treasures Music Publishing, BMI

I lay around all day in the shade,
go in, go out, I got it made
I got a job in security,
I sleep on the porch,
don’t take it seriously,
I keep my nose to the ground,
alert for crime.
When I hear a sound,
I wait for a sign to look up and think
should I chase,
or if I do
will my human get on my case
like she does when I beg
and I give her sad eyes
then I cock my head
and I get a surprise. Gotcha.
Like when she’ll throw a stick
and fetch she’ll say
but I prefer the game of keep away.
It’s so fun to watch her run around
and not complain.
I know how to jerk her chain,
I got her trained

My human loves me,
She’s my best friend
My human loves me,
doesn’t keep me penned
Lets me sleep all day,
makes me smile
when she wants to play
She makes good company,
my human loves me

I got some friends
in the neighborhood,
we run around,
get into no good.
One is Fido, the other one’s Spot.
They don’t look like much
but they’re all I got.
We like to dig up flowers
in the neighbor’s yard,
eat their cat food for hours.
Life is so hard
and we lick our lips
and rest awhile.
My friends chase cars
but that ain’t my style.
I get to ride in a Plymouth
with my head in the wind,
when we go to the river,
I get to jump in,
I know S-W-I-M, swim.
I also do sit and I comprehend no,
but only what and where
and when I want
so you see I know a few tricks,
I gotta brain.
My human’s not so hard to entertain,
I got her trained

My human loves me,
Takes me everywhere
My human loves me,
loves to brush my fluffy hair
Always thinks I’m so cute,
likes to kiss my snoot
She makes good company,
my human loves me

My human loves me,
she keeps me off the leash
My human loves me,
serves me steak, sometimes quiche
My life is so cool,
never had to go to that dumb dog school
She makes good company,
my human loves me.

Him & Her In The Groove Lyrics

7. Simple Words © 1998
Brenda Freed & Bob Clark,
Moondance Treasures Music Publishing, BMI

Suzanne grew up
in a house full of pain
With nothing to lose
and nothing to gain
Her mama was weak,
her daddy was mean
She left them behind
when she turned seventeen
Young Suzanne took flight
in the middle of the night
Left the window wide open,
she slammed the door tight

She hit the city alone and afraid
She couldn’t regret
the choices she’d made
He was tall dark and ugly
in ways she could not see
With nothin’ but empty
where his heart oughta be
His words were simple.
It’s simple words that kill
They pulled like a magnet
on her iron will

Chorus

Step out of the bright light
Dance with me in the sweet night
I’ll give you what you’re after
I’ll fulfill all your dreams

He treated her well
’til the money ran out
That’s when she learned
what the streets are about
Now she’s waltzing with strange men
in shadows of the night
You’ll never see her
where the street lights are bright
Her words are simple.
It’s simple words that kill
They pull like a magnet
on your iron will

Chorus

Suzanne grew up
in a house full of pain
With nothing to lose
and nothing to gain

8. Don’t Tell Me Lies © 2001
JB Braden,
Moondance Treasures Music Publishing, BMI

She turned to look, I saw you smile
Tell me why, tell me why
Are you doin’ wrong?
Have you been sneakin’?
Tell the truth, don’t tell me lies

You’re on the phone again tonight
Talkin’ low so I don’t know
If you will, if you will
Tell the truth, don’t tell me lies

Oh tell the truth, don’t tell me lies
Turn around, Let me see your eyes
Have you got secrets? My my my
Tell the truth, don’t tell me lies

Say what you want me to do
You make me crazy, is it true
Are you doin’ wrong?
Have you been sneakin’?
Tell the truth, don’t tell me lies

You say you’re just teasin’ me
That kind of teasin’ it just worries me
Play me straight, do me right
Tell the truth, don’t tell me lies

Oh tell the truth, don’t tell me lies
Turn around, let me see your eyes
Have you got secrets? My my
Tell the truth, don’t tell me lies
Don’t tell me lies

9. A Few Kind Words © 2013
Brenda Freed,
Moondance Treasures Music Publishing, BMI
Hamp Brockman, Hamp Brockman Music, BMI

A few kind words was all I could say
When time slowed to still,
when time when away
To live and not love would be absurd
I gave you my love,
you gave me these words

When we first met
you shook with fear
Twisted and torn with nobody near
You looked so relieved,
you could finally breathe free
A few kind words, restored dignity

Is it the sunrise or the sunset?
Is it the beginning or the end?
We grow through each moment
and time disappears
A few kind words, begin right here.

Instrumental

One way or another
it was your time to go
I left you in peace,
I knew you would know
We shared love for a moment that day
One look through your eyes
gave it away

Is it the sunrise or the sunset?
Looks like the beginning and the end
We grow through each moment
and time disappears
A few kind words begin right here
We grow through each moment
and time disappears
A few kind words,
just a few kind words

10. Never Change Your Style
Fraser Nimmo, © 2009 Speug Records

If we never meet again
I’ll always see you as a friend
You gave me meaning for a while
May you never change your style

With a sympathetic ear
And words of optimistic sense
You unraveled all my fears
Put my uneasy mind at rest

Next time I get the chance
To ease another’s pain
Then I hope that I’ll come in on cue
And if I’m half as good as you
I’ll smile
And in your absence thank your style

When this present tense is past
And no unspoken hopes come true
Some other time some other where
Somebody else will count on you
And I know you’ll be the light upon
In sickness and in strength
To ease frustrations, aches and pains
Forgive mistakes
and remember names
And you’ll smile
May you never change your style

So if we never meet again
I’ll always see you as a friend
You gave me meaning for a while
May you never change your style

And at some time every year
A tune will jog my mind
A certain chord will fall in place
And in that sound I’ll see your face
And I’ll smile
May you never change your style
You gave me meaning for a while
May you never change your style
