Track Name: Labor Of Love
Fruition - Labor of Love

I told you, I told you I’d be fine
I told you, I told you not to worry, baby
I told you, I told you I’d be alright
I told you, I told you it was a lie

And when you break down brother
I’ll come and pick you up
It’s just a matter of time
It’s just a labor of love

I want to, I want to be there
I want to, I want to be someone you can count on
I try to, I try to be a friend
I hope you, I hope you come around in the end

And when you feel like you can’t go on
I’ll come and give you a shove
It’s just a matter of time
It’s just a labor of love

We all need someone sometimes
To pull us out when we’re stuck
It’s just a matter of time
It’s just a labor of love

And when you break down brother
I’ll come and pick you up
It’s just a matter of time
it’s just a labor of love

Just cause you’re back on your feet again
Don’t mean they won’t pull the rug
It’s just a matter of time
It’s just a labor of love
It’s just a matter of time
It’s just a labor of love
Track Name: Santa Fe
Fruition - Santa Fe

Since I can’t have you here
I’m going the places you’d be taking me if you could
And its crystal clear
That even with distance I am loving you like I should
And I go walking where
There’s quartz in the gravel and jasper in the yard
Nobody watching you
Just the painted Mother Marys and the cowboys made of bronze

We’re gonna move some day
We’re gonna move to Santa Fe

In the midnight hour
I go quiet with a dream of you in mind
And like the sun
It warms my skin and brightens up my eyes

We’re gonna move some day
To that adobe house with turquoise painted gates
And once it’s done
The days will move at just the perfect pace

We’re gonna move some day
We’re gonna move to Santa Fe
Track Name: The Meaning
Fruition - The Meaning

The big blue sky was watching us
And the breeze was listening to us tell our tale
The sun stayed up just long enough to make it clear
Just what we are doing here

I was born to love you
I will die and go back to stardust
All I know about being alive is that life's for the living
I ain't seeking salvation
Not too worried about damnation
I got little expectation, and as such I ain't easily let down

All I really wanna do is be close to you
while we're still both around.

Track Name: Falling On My Face
Fruition - Falling On My Face

I been lost in a horrible dream
Won’t you please come around, and rescue me
My dear

The rain, rain comes and I drink it away
Comes back like a sack of bricks one day
I fear

I’m looking for a sign, to tell me where I am
Lookin’ for a woman who ain’t lookin’ for a man
But when the night falls heavy and I feel so outta place
Well these ain’t tears, it’s just rain falling on my face

So excuse me friend but do you have the time
To listen to a man going outta his mind

And if there’s anything that’s been left unsaid
I’m sure I’ll figure it out when I’m lyin’ awake in my bed
tonight

I’m looking for a sign, to tell me where I am
Lookin’ for a woman who ain’t lookin’ for a man
But when the night falls heavy and I feel so outta place
Well these ain’t tears, it’s just rain falling on my face

Ahhhh
Track Name: Above The Line
Fruition - Above The Line

I've been missin' your face lately
Been on my mind upon the daily
I will give you all my love and time
When I'm back above the line

Been hearin' your voice honey
I gotta run just to get that money
Will you still be mine, once I'm back above the line?

Oooh it is a gamble, to be livin' a life like a rambler
Lordy I know that I ain't gonna get nothin' for free
I can't expect you to linger and wait for me

Been dreamin' of and singin' of you baby
But what else can I do? All I think of is you.
Won't you send me a sign, ‘til I'm back above the line?

Been workin' so hard for it sugar
And I will wait ‘til the day when you can look my way
And I can lay my eyes right on ya, cause I'm back upon the line

Oooh it is a gamble, to be livin' a life like a rambler
Lordy I know that I ain't gonna get nothin' for free
I can't expect you to linger and wait for me

Oooh it is a gamble, to be livin' a life like a rambler
Lordy I know that I ain't gonna get nothin' for free
I can't expect you to linger and wait for me

Oooh it is a gamble, to be livin' a life like a rambler
Lordy I know that I ain't gonna get nothin' for free
I can't expect you to linger and wait for me

Are you gonna wait?
Track Name: The Way That I Do
Fruition - The Way That I Do

I know, it ain’t easy
Loving a man like me
I hit the ground running, yes it’s true
But there ain’t no one that can love you
The way that I do

Like an all night truck driver
The road don’t only pay the rent
Ya end up getting stuck with a lust for the engine’s hiss

But I know one thing for certain
I’d drive from here straight to Baltimore and back
From Alaska all the way to Argentina just for one wet kiss

And I know, It ain’t easy
Waiting on a man like me
I get lost inside the moments yes it’s true
But there ain’t no one that can love you
The way that I do
The way that I do
The way that I do

Like a free bird soaring high
It’s built with wings and babe I know I gotta fly
I get split right down the middle between my guitar and your side

But there ain’t no other woman
That could ever hold a match to you
And though I’m gone out singing songs, well baby you were always on my mind

And I know It ain’t easy
Living with a man like me
I sleep right through the morning yes I do
But there ain’t no one that could love you
The way that I do
The way that I do
The way that I do

But there ain’t no one that could love you
The way that I do
The way that I do
The way that I do
Track Name: Beside You
Fruition - Beside You

Sun comin’ up over the Tennessee hills
Thinking ‘bout my baby, she knows how it feels
To rise up singing and go down slow
Try not to think of all that's left to go

I'm out here workin' day in, day out
Got nothin' fancy, but not doing without
She’s got a job and a dog and a big empty bed
And I'm waiting for the day that I can rest my head

Beside you, beside you
Find peace when the day is done
Beside you, oh, beside you
Forget about the days on the run

These concrete lines that go on for miles
Leading me away from my failures and trials
I made a few mistakes and done a whole lot of good
Singing for the people like I know I should, but to be

Beside you, beside you
Find peace when the day is done
Beside you, oh, beside you
Forget about the days on the run

Sun going down in the westward sky
Holding hands with my baby by the riverside
It’s calm in the city with the one I love
These are the days I'm dreaming of

Beside you, beside you
Find peace when the day is done
Beside you, oh, beside you
Forget about the days on the run
Track Name: Early Morning Wake Up
Fruition - Early Morning Wake Up

I woke up early, a troubled man
And stayed up late just the same
Reaching for distractions
To ease my troubled brain

Six tall cans of that poison
A smoky basement room
A book of matches becomes the sun
And the screen the glowing moon
A speaker speaks a tune

This is colorful - it's not black and white
These lessons ain't written in stone
But should we cease to learn them
Then we'll reap just what we've sown

I'm gonna be the music
I'm gonna blur the line
And I'll wake up early and come to you
And I'll be feeling fine - ain't got no troubled mind

I can't shake it, no I can't run away
We're gonna make it.

I can't shake it, no I can't run away
We're gonna make it.

I can't shake it, no I can't run away
We're gonna make it.
Track Name: Death Comes Knockin'
Fruition - Death Comes Knockin’

I been working for many long years
Good times, hard times, blood, sweat, and tears
Seems like I’m never anyplace but right here
And all I get is sick and sore

Now I ain’t too smart, I ain’t too dumb
Knowing someday that my times gonna come
Until that day I’m gonna have my fun
Til death comes knockin’ at my door

No matter if you’re in your prime
No matter if ya got a dime
Everbody’s got their time
Death’ll come a knockin at your door

I read about a man just the other day
Got drunk and in his car and he drove himself away
Playin’ chicken with the pigs but he lost that day
And he don’t come around no more

Now you may be good, you may be sad
Happy go lucky, or forever sad
A brother, or a mother, or a sister, or a dad
But death’ll come a knockin’ at your door

No matter if you’re in your prime
No matter if ya got a dime
Everbody’s got their time
Death’ll come a knockin at your door
