Track Name: Treadwell
Mercy for I'm torn from love, and live on just the same.
Lost to one that would not love, and watch my love remain.
My love remain.

You spoke to me like preaching, you spoke to me in rhyme.
Named the days and all the ways that you'd be mine.
You'd be mine.

I wore it upon my sleeve, and denied it was there.
A smile like sugar, and a head full of air, receiving what was fair.
Track Name: What The Neighbors Say
Put a swing in your step in the morning.
Put a swing in your step each day.
Put a swing in your step in the morning,
And don't mind what the neighbors say

Wrote a letter to the mayor this morning,
Wrote a letter to the sheriff today,
Wrote a letter to governor this morning,
I asked them all to come and hear us play

Because this mandolin is ringing, people all are singing
If you get joy then let your hips sway.
One more time across the floor, back to the bar for just one more
And don't mind what the neighbors say.

Mr. Record man skipped out on our meeting,
Skipped out on our meeting today.
Mr. Record man skipped out on our meeting,
We don't give a damn what Mr. Record man say

And it don't matter if there's two or two hundred
We might play for a single soul today
If you like the sound of what we're doing,
Then don't mind what the neighbors say.
Track Name: Mountain To Move
What do you think you know?
Just how far would you go
If you loved someone
If you loved someone?

What would you not do?
What mountain would you not move
If you loved someone
If you loved someone?

Straight into the wind every single day
Years like tides pass away
But you're going to have to ride on every one
Live each day like the song of songs
Never sing a single note that's wrong
The greatest kind of love is always hard won.

So cross the country as an act of faith
Walk on day after day
Because you love someone
Because you love someone

Throw yourself at the mercy of life
Buckle up and take that ride
Because you love someone
Because you love someone

Chorus

The only thing that's every been real
The only thing that makes a proud man kneel
Is if he loves someone
If he loves someone

So go on you love someone
In this life you better love someone.
