Track Name: A Country Dance
A Country Dance by Joanna Sternberg

Give me your hand and I'll give you mine
Follow me and my bottle of wine
And we'll dance 'neath the stars
Dance 'neath the stars
Haven't got a care
Breathing country air
Holding hands with you this is a memory we'll share

Tell me secrets and tell me your dreams
I'll tell stories of my various schemes
I love clownin' around
Clownin' around
I have my whole life long
I'll keep it goin' on

CHORUS:

Every day I make someone laugh so hard
That they cry out tears and their stomach's scarred
As I dance with you I'll make you laugh too
And you'll finally see I make you happy
This is a fantasy, it's true

Let us giggle and look at the lake
Hope I see that your smile ain't fake
Life is a dream, life is a dream
Nothing can go wrong, nothing can go wrong
We'll catch frogs and sit on logs and our night will last long

CHORUS:

Every day I make someone laugh so hard
That they cry out tears and their stomach's scarred
As I dance with you I'll make you laugh too
And you'll finally see I make you happy
This is a fantasy, it's true

Give me your hand and I'll give you mine
Follow me and my bottle of wine
And we'll dance 'neath the stars
Dance 'neath the stars
Haven't got a care
Breathing country air
Holding hands with you this is a memory we'll share
Track Name: He Dreams
He Dreams by Joanna Sternberg

He dreams of another
Every time I call his name
Every time I call but still I fall
In love
Again

Oh, he dreams of another
Every time he feels the same
How can I get over the pain I know
I will not love again
I will not love again
I will not love again

CHORUS

Here eyes pierce my heart with a sword
Her hair black as night
Her face sweet like the smell of rain
Soft lips that kissed him goodnight

So he dreams of another
But he says it isn't so
How can I believe as I watch him grieve
He'll never let her go
He'll never let her go
He'll never let her go
Track Name: The Love I Give
The Love I Give by Joanna Sternberg

I give all my love to you
It don't matter who you are ain't nothing new
Though I barely get none back
That still don't erase the fact
I will give and I will give my love to you
I will give and I will give my love to you

CHORUS

And all the time
And the energy I could be saving
My crime
Is love
And if I see
Your face before me in all my dreams
It's fine
Just fine

Tell me how
Can you hear me
All the times that I helped you but you didn't see
That maybe I'm human too
But what more can I do
I will give and I will give my love to you
I will give and I will give my love to you

CHORUS

And all the time
And the energy I could be saving
My crime
Is love
And if I see
Your face before me in all my dreams
It's fine
Just fine

I give all my love to you
It don't matter who you are ain't nothing new
Though I barely get none back
That still don't erase the fact
I will give and I will give my love to you

I will give, I will give
I will give, I will give
I will give, I will give my love to you
Track Name: It Happens To Be A Boy
It Happens To Be A Boy (or Girl) by Joanna Sternberg

It happens to be a boy
It happens to be a boy
I looked all the world, and what did I find?
It happens to be a boy

The ones that I've held so close
The ones I have needed most
They've been all kinds of people and minds
It happens to be a boy

CHORUS

When he's away
We're still so close
When we're together
I smile so much my mouth aches

I know I'm not afraid
Of the change that I have made
I know that he's the one for me
It happens
It happens
It happens to be a boy
Track Name: I Will Be With You
I Will Be With You by Joanna Sternberg

Every night I cannot sleep
I lie awake and pray
I will be with you
I will be with you
I will be with you someday

When I drift into a dream
You're there each night and day
I will be with you
I will be with you
I will be with you someday

CHORUS

One day, you'll see
How your life was meant to share with me
I will be with you
I will be with you
I will be with you someday

I'm not one to play a game I ain't too proud to pray
I will be with you
I will be with you
I will be with you someday

(humming the melody)

CHORUS

One day, you'll see
How your life was meant to share with me

I will be with you
We'll start our lives new
I will be with you someday
Track Name: Lullaby To Myself
Lullaby To Myself by Joanna Sternberg

When you're sleepy
Go in bed to hear me
I'm just waiting
For you to close your eyes
But if I sing this little tune
Designed to carry you
Gently down the path to float to sleep

Go in your book
Full of dreams and take a look
Pick one to make you
Have the sweetest dreams
You are your own best friend
Hibernating in your den
Gently down the path to float to sleep

CHORUS

Sing this lazy song
With me as you sleep
Sing this lazy song
And no nightmares shall creep

Don't be scared now
Darkness can be friendly
Nothing will harm you
Your pillow's soft and warm
Please don't forget the things you know
Now I think it's time to go
Gently down the path to float to sleep

CHORUS

Sing this lazy song
With me as you sleep
Sing this lazy song
And no nightmares shall creep

And no nightmares shall creep
And no nightmares shall creep
Track Name: I've Got Me
I've Got Me by Joanna Sternberg


CHORUS

I've got me, in the morning
I've got me, in the evening
I'll let you be, because
I've got me

And all my faults and flaws and lies
Are no one's fault but mine
Between self-hatred and self-awareness
Is a very small thin line

I can't stop my worry and my fury
Of all that I've done wrong
I waste so much time, I mean it
So much time

CHORUS

I've got me, in the morning
I've got me, in the evening
I'll let you be, because
I've got me

Why is it so hard to be kind
And gentle to myself
Take the box of self-deprecation
Lock it, and put it on the shelf

Then wait five days
Take that box
And throw it in the fire
Maybe one day, oh yeah
One fine day

CHORUS

I've got me, in the morning
I've got me, in the evening
I'll let you be, because

It's plain to see, mhmm
I've got, I've got
I've got me
Track Name: The Song
The Song by Joanna Sternberg

This is the song
I will sing when I'm gone
From the pain
That you
Put me through

It will help me
Out of this sad misery
It will ease
My troubled mind

CHORUS

I've been sleeping and hiding inside
I've been drinking and losing my pride
If I had any left to lose
Then I wouldn't be playing the blues

I don't need you
Though you think that I do
But someday we will be
An old memory

Maybe someday
When my pain goes away
I will get up
And get out
And get free

CHORUS

I've been sleeping and hiding inside
I've been drinking and losing my pride
If I had any left to lose
Then I wouldn't be playing the blues

If I had any left to lose
Then I wouldn't be playing the blues
Then I wouldn't be playing the blues
If I had any left to lose
Track Name: Without You
Without You by Joanna Sternberg

Without You, I'll never make it out alive
Without You, won't have no reason to survive
Without You, I'll greet the river then I'll dive
Without You

I'll never, I'll never stop singing the blues
I'll never, I'll never stop thinking of you
If love songs can work at all
Of course they do
But not without you

(humming)

I'll never, I'll never stop singing the blues
I'll never, I'll never stop thinking of you
If love songs can work at all
Of course they do
But not without you
Track Name: I'll Make You Mine
I'll Make You Mine by Joanna Sternberg

I'll make you mine, I'll make you mine
I'll make you mine though it will take time
Time that I have lost
I'll make you mine
I'll make you mine

You haunt me so
I can't let go
If I can't have you then what will I do
For the memory of you clings to me
I'll make you mine
I'll make you mine

CHORUS

Wake up, wake up, wake up
I've been dreaming forever of you
Wake up, wake up, wake up
There ain't nothing else I can do
I'll make you mine

Don't tell me lies
I hate your eyes
When I look away then you always say
How you need me
But I don't see
I'll make you mine
I'll make you mine

CHORUS

Wake up, wake up, wake up
I've been dreaming forever of you
Wake up, wake up, wake up
There ain't nothing else I can do

I'll make you mine
I'll make you mine
I'll make you mine
I'll make you mine
