Track Name: Harder Than Diamonds (Live from Sofar Washington, DC)
Harder Than Diamonds (2014)

Shared a secret with a stranger
as she cashed out my bill
blushing in her apron
laughing harder than diamonds.

Found a wash in Harlem
from the hands of the children –
braided hair and barefoot
laughing harder than diamonds.

We were giving the time of our lives.
We were giving the soul and the song.
We were giving the time of our lives.
We were given the right and the wrong.

Caught a moment in the grass
where the lovers were rooted,
exchanging dimpled glances,
laughing harder than diamonds.

We were giving the time of our lives.
We were giving the soul and the song.
We were giving the time of our lives.
We were given the right and the wrong.

Traded time for stories
where the creek was golden.
Poked your thigh of sunburn,
laughing harder than diamonds.

We were giving the time of our lives.
We were giving the soul and the song.
We were giving the time of our lives.
We were given the right and the wrong.
Track Name: Nobody Gives It Time (Live from Abandoned Space Observatory) #RemoteRecordings
Hello,

How ya been?
It gets longer everyday
and I want to talk to you all night,
but I don't know where to start.

Everybody's rollin’ up street to find their next connection
and nobody wants ta give ya time.
Everybody's rolling up street to find that next sensation
and nobody wants ta give it time.

There are always things to do
and excuses that enslave you;
so I've been walking in the evenin’s
'cause I don't know what I might find.

Everybody's rollin’ up street to find their next connection
and nobody wants ta give ya time.
Everybody's rolling up street to find that next sensation
and nobody wants ta give it time.

In the morning
without a thing to do
I want to wake up n' spin into
your bouquet of curls.

Everybody's rollin’ up street to find their next connection
and nobody wants ta give ya time.
Everybody's rolling up street to find that next sensation
and nobody wants ta give it time.
Track Name: Something More (Live from Columbus Historical Society) #RemoteRecordings
Come on now it's gettin’ late,
the fire will burn out if you don't feed it
and the smoke will smother a dream.

And a man that's hatin' is a man that's fakin' something more;
and a man that's hutrin' is a man that's yearnin' for something more;
and a man that's wantin' is a man that's huntin' for something more;
and a man that's healin' is a man that's feelin' something more.

Moments come and go so feel them,
the warmth comes from being closer
and perception is a metaphor.

And a man that's thinkin' is a man that's linkin' to something more;
and a man that's believin' is a man that's concievin' something more;
and a man that's hikin' is a man that's climbin' to something more;
and a man that's fightin' the chain that's bitin' is something more.

Somethin'

If you're looking for the truth, then that's where you'll find it.

Danger is real, but fear is a choice,
so if you wanna be somethin',
then just believe and become it
'cause a wise young man is sowin' the seed.
