Track Name: Medicine Man
Easy now baby
Don't you go castin' no black magic curses on me
Slow down lady, you witchy woman
You ain't no queen but you sure do rule over me
Tell me gonna leave me for another man
One more evil than the son of sam

I done told ya
For the hundred thousandth time
You’re the only thing runnin’ like a freight train through my mind
I done told ya
But please help me understand
Why you gotta leave me and run off with the Medicine Man

Ooooo, You’re his lady,
Your under his spell and baby I'm under yours too
I'll light a candle, I'll say an incantation
Anything I can to tear that devil away from you
Now your making love under a voodoo moon
With a cool witchdoctor, a rude rock n roller

I done told ya
For the hundred thousandth time
You’re the only thing runnin’ like a freight train through my mind
I done told ya
But please help me understand
Why you gotta leave
Why you gotta tease me
You really wanna thrill me
I guess I’m gonna kill me a medicine man
Track Name: Make a Stand for Powhatan!
(neale/colby)

move me
shake me
twist me
shake me

make me
kill me
shake me
take me
Track Name: We Were Always Better Friends
I won't admit defeat my love
I'm never wrong
I'm held above
Need someone to hear my tale
You sing your song
My skin grows pale
Only want you to comfort me
Your thoughts and fears don't interest me
Need someone to fill my bed
Your warning signs escape my head

We were always better friends
Nevermind the time we spent
I'll throw your girl under a train
But when we're face to face
We're right as rain

We were always better friends
It's not a lie it's truth in my head
You build her up, I'll tear her down
The last night you ever spend in this town

She's not a leader not a force of nature
Just has the things I want to touch and feel
Her taste is not the same I share
I just want the object of her love and care
She's a step in front
I'm a step behind
Not a kind position or a piece of mind
I'll use the things I have to share
This number two on my chest is going to disappear

Maybe a lie, it's not a lie, it's the truth in my head
Track Name: She says, "I love you but I don't know how..."
Love came in through the back through the storm cellar door
It crept up my spine and into my pores
If you ask me if she’s here, I’ll tell you I’m not sure
I may have heard a rustling coming from upstairs

We use lovers like knives to twist in the side
But believe it or not there was magic that first night
If you’ve got a solution man, tell me I’m all ears
We’ve tried everything and we’ve been trying for years

She says I love you but I don’t know how
I say I love you but I’m far too proud

I’m sure that I’ve told you this story before
About the night we first met, that first knock on the door
The place where we first ate, the place where we first sat
If I knew what I know now, I’d take my stolen heart back

And it sure was a long time before it felt like a long time
20 some odd summers 21 christmas pines
Memories their mine, all mine to keep
Sometimes so bittersweet they put holes in your teeth

She says I love you but I’m just sure
That the love will be the thing that makes us endure

I ain’t runnin’ after you
I ain’t breaking my neck
I’ve tried once before
Not the desired effect
I’ve romanced and romanced
Now, I can’t even get a glance
From the one person whose respect I deserve

She says I love you but I really must go
And I say I love you and I hate that you know

Love came in through the back through the storm cellar door
It crept up my spine and into my pores
If you ask me if she’s here, I’ll tell you I’m not sure
And to tell you the truth I really don’t care
