This is my Cross to Bear

~ Jam Session Demo ~

I know your hope is gone away
All I know is a rainy day
Baby come and run away
I know you've got something on your back
This is my Cross to Bear
This is my Cross to Bear

All of your hope is died away
Died off... died away
Yeah, you can go on any old day
'Cause you've got something on him
Oh yeah...
This is my Cross to Bear... bear
This is my Cross to Bear

Oh baby
Everyone is right now
There you go
You never know...
This is my Cross to Bear
Oh baby
This is my Cross to Bear
This is my Cross to Bear
This is my Cross to Bear
When you just don't care
This is my Cross to Bear

To you the song is always sad
I can't sleep and you can't hide
But I know if you look inside
You will find everything is alright
Yeah...
This is my Cross to Bear
This is my Cross to Bear
This is my Cross to Bear

Everything is alright baby
As if somebody cares
Even though you don't...
That's right...
This is my Cross to Bear
When you just don't care

You go and tell me lies
You told me it would be alright
You know that?
You don't know me no more...
As if somebody cares...
And now you're on your own...
To carry it all
As if somebody cares...
It's alright... it's alright
As if somebody cares...
I'll do alright
As if somebody cares...
As if somebody cares...
As if somebody cares...
And don't run away...
As if somebody cares...
As if somebody cares...

Oh, yeah
As if somebody cares...
Alright...
As if somebody cares...
As if somebody cares...
Oh, yeah
As if somebody cares...
You don't know what it's about
You don't have it anyhow
You gotta do it all by yourself
Cause you've got no one else

As if somebody cares...
As if somebody cares...
And you got on the telephone...
As if somebody cares...
One more wrong number, baby
Uh-oh yeah, uh-oh,baby
As if somebody cares...
As if somebody cares...
As if somebody cares...
You do good, it's overlooked
And then I went home to nothing at all
As if somebody cares...
I call him my desperado,
Some call her the diamond-shattered
Look out my window
What can I do...


























Thrown Down

~ Trouble in Shangri-La Outtake ~

He fell for her again, she watched it happen
Every day, day by day...
But more important... night by night
She watched it all come into play
He held her hands, she listened to what he had to say

Chorus:
Thrown down... like a barricade
Maybe now he could prove to her
That he could be good for her
And that they should be together

You say you're sorry, now you should walk away
But it's so overwhelming, you have nothing left to say
You can sit outside your door and wait
You can dedicate your pain to him

Repeat Chorus

He fell for her again, she watched it happen
Every day, day by day...
But more important... night by night
She watched it all come into play
He held her hands, she listened to what he had to say

Thrown down...
Like a barricade
Maybe now he could prove to her
That he could be good for her
And they should be together
(Thrown down...)
About just how much he never really told her
Thrown down...
Ooh, about how difficult it had been to be without her
Thrown down...
Thrown down...
Thrown down...
Ooh, he fell for her again
I watched it happen
Thrown down...
She watched it happen
Thrown down...
She watched it happen




























Tied Up (In Promises)

~ Wild Heart Outtake ~

You keep me waiting
I don't mind the waiting
I don't wait for everyone,
This is a one-time situation
You say you need me
Well, I believe you need me
So you're fooling no one
This is a one-time situation

What does it matter?
Who's been taken in
What does it matter?
Here's the opportunity
Well, come and take it to the nth degree
Holding back your promises

Tied Up In Promises
Tied Up In Promises
You'll never be
I don't wanna let you go
Please don't make me let you go

I get a feeling
I need to know the feeling
Something special going on
This is a one-time situation
Take my affection
Give me no rejection
So lets do what must be done
This is a one-time situation

What does it matter?
Who's been taken in
What does it matter?
Here's your opportunity
Come and take it to the nth degree
Holding back your promises

Tied Up...
Tied Up In Promises
Tied Up...
Tied Up In Promises
I don't wanna let you go
Please don't make me let you go

Here's an opportunity
Come with me to the nth degree
Tied Up In Promises
Tied Up In Promises
So I keep you....
Tied Up In Promises


























The Tower

~ Buckingham Nicks Demo ~

Don't take me to the Tower
And take my child away
Twas I who was the hourglass
And sands of time like shattering glass
Went past me
Like a tunnel to the sea

And I who went to sleep in tears
Woke up in tears for all of the years
And I had said goodbye before and then
I said goodbye again

And when you hold yourself
And know that
There were two
Now only you remain
You'll close your eyes and travel back
Through the time when
The light went fading fast...
And the words you'll never, never forget
As I slipped away...

Goodbye, baby...
Goodbye, baby...
Goodbye, baby...


























Tragedy of One's Own Soul

~ Other Side of the Mirror Outtake with Kenny G ~

House is full tonight...
People are everywhere
There's a lot of people locked up
In locked rooms that
We'll never see again
Not again to just get together
Not again to prove that
We can still be there
Ooh, presentation of the
Tragedy of his Own Soul...

Well, it's hard to look into the
Tragedy of one's own soul
Because the very great part of you
Really knows how bad it was

I'll admit that I was back there nights ago
Funny about this love affair
I have words with the music,
But now it's the only thing
That pulls me back up
By my bootstraps
That electricity...

Well, the house is full tonight...
People are everywhere
Well, there's a lot of people
Locked up in rooms tonight...
Many we'll never see again
Not again, not to just get together
No, not again just to prove we can
Still be there...
Sees this as a presentation of
The tragedy of his own soul

We don't have so very
Much in common, no
You don't have really
Very much to say
You tell me what is it
That you are wanting
You just look at me
With those eyes
And we don't talk to eachother
Every day...
In fact, sometimes weeks go by
We don't speak...
And then something in the mail comes
She goes a little bit into shock
Will I see you tomorrow night...
He says,
"I can't live like this...
I can't do it right"
I'll see you tomorrow night
Everything's just too good to be true
Nothing's going wrong
I know when you wake up
In the middle of the night
It's just a bad dream, baby
Well, it was a nightmare
It started to be a fight
Just a bad dream, baby...


























Watchdevil

~ Almanac Demo ~

Lovely soft faded jeans...
A very soft shirt in a light blue
Perfect dreams and a watchchain
Becomes you...
You're just a watchchain...
And it becomes you
A watchchain...
A watchchain...
Watchdevil...keeper of the time...

Lovely soft tired face...
Touching fingers through the kitchen lace
I think that I should hold your hand...
I'm hurting darling, do you understand?
Well, I'm hurting, darling...
Do you understand?
Watchdevil...keeper of the time...
Watchdevil...

Be aware of the danger...
As you cross the great water...
Be careful of strangers
Who are new to your eyes...
Beware of the people
Who look not straight at you...

The keeper of the time is blind...
The keeper of the time is blind...
Well, the keeper of the time is...blind...
Watchdevil...
Keeper of the time...
Keeper of the time...
Keeper of the time...
Watchdevil...

What Would You Do?

~ Unreleased song ~

Could it be the secrets
That are a little less kept
Could it be the darkness
Or a woman that you can't forget...
Could it be the answer
That is there and is waiting for you?
You're the only echo
In the stillness of the dawn
Could it be the magic of
Waiting for the fall is gone
Isn't that the reason
An excuse that you're willing to use

So What Would You Do?
If she comes calling back to you?
Could you face her now
Could you fake a smile
Or would you tell her the truth?
What Would You Do...
What Would You Do?

Suddenly the phone rings,
And in an instant there you know
That she's back to haunt you
But you never really let her go
The sun is fading
And the moon shines a light on the truth
Can you feel the mourning of
Her frozen kiss goodbye
That's the way she left you...
But you never knew the reason why
She broke the mirror
And her seven years are just about through...

So What Would You Do?
If she comes calling back to you
Could you face her now?
Would you just fake a smile
Or would you tell her the truth?
What Would You Do?
Would you do?
Would you do?
Just What Would You Do?

Could it be the secrets
That are a little less kept
(A little less kept)
Could it be the darkness
Or the woman that you can't forget
Could it be the answer
That is there and is waiting for you?

So what would you do
If she comes calling back
Could you face her now
Or would you fake a smile
Or would you tell her the truth
What Would You Do?


























When Sunny Gets Blue

~ performed by Stevie at Walden Woods benefit ~

When Sunny Gets Blue
Her eyes get gray and cloudy
Then the rain begins to fall
Pitter-patter, pitter-patter
Love is gone so what can matter?
No sweet lovin' man comes to call

When Sunny Gets Blue
She breathes a sigh of sadness
Like the wind that stirs the trees
Wind that sets the leaves to swayin'
Like some violins are playin'
Weird and haunting melodies

People used to love to hear her laugh
See her smile
That's how she got her name
Since that sad affair she's lost her smile,
Changed her style
Somehow she's not the same

But memories will fade
And pretty dreams will rise up
Where her other dreams fell through
Hurry, new love, hurry here
To kiss away each lonely tear
And hold her near When Sunny Gets Blue

Hurry, new love, hurry here
To kiss away each lonely tear
And hold her near
When Sunny... Gets Blue


























When Will We Love Again

~ Fritz Demo ~

I've waited so long...
Now I can breathe...
And you waited, too
You waited, waited for me...
When shall we love...
When shall we love...
When will the hour be...
Today...tonight...now...

When will you come to me...
When shall we love...
And he never doubted me
And oh, how he did trust
Now maybe someday because of me,
He'll learn not to trust so much...when he does love...again
It can't be me...again
And now you are here...
Your blue eyes, your smile and your golden ring...
A fortress I painted in fear...
Is shining like a light made out of crystal...

When shall we love...
Tonight...tonight
When shall we love...
Shine on like a light...
When shall we love...
From sundown to sundown...
Oh, the failures have burned down...
Yes, from midnight to morning...
As a poet loves poetry...this has been my story
Tonight, tonight...ooh, ooh...
This has been my story


























The Witch

~ Demo also known as "Melacine" ~

"Melacine is insane," they said
They burned your body
And they wished you dead
"You're a witch," they cried
They feared the silence
In your cat green eyes
Melacine lived alone by the sea
She was not lonely,
She was not lonely...
She lived on herbs
And her sense for a dream
And such a beauty was Melacine
Melacine was a beauty...
La da da da da da
La la da da da da...


























Without You

~ Buckingham Nicks outtake ~

In my life
There's been a few things
Worth singing about you
Well, I never even dreamed
That I'd know you
Strange are the ways
Of a very complicated world
And there you are

Come to me now...
And I'll never know another
You are a song for me, a melody
Ingrained in my soul
Sing, sing your song
For my ears, they only hear you
If I never knew the likes of you
Where would I be Without You?
Without You?
Without You?
Yeah...

If I'd not heard your laughter
Maybe I wouldn't love you
If I'd not sung your music
If I'd not come rolling after you
Whoa, yeah...

Crying out loud...
The time had come and gone without you
Inside me...
Love to be written about you
Strange are the ways
Of a very complicated world
And there you are

Come to me now...
And I'll never know another
You are a song for me, a melody
Ingrained in my soul
Sing, sing your song
For my ears, they only hear you
If I never knew the likes of you
Where would I be Without You?
Without You?
Without You?
