Track Name: Great Green World
Title : GREAT GREEN WORLD
Artist : The Waiting
Album : Tillbury Town [1991]
Written by Brad Olsen and Todd Olsen

GREAT GREEN WORLD:

I've got a job it's a pretty good job
I work hard to earn my pay
Think about the money that I'll make this week
I'll store it up, I'll save it away

Hold me tight
Feel like a black speck in a corporate swirl
Hold me tight
I'm a red man in a Great Green World

Never thought my life would be reduced to this
Is compromise the only way?
My family sits at home while I hang on to a three piece suit
and a twelve hour day
Track Name: The Last Cry
Title : THE LAST CRY
Artist : The Waiting
Album : Tillbury Town [1991]
Written by Todd Olsen

THE LAST CRY:

Run out of words to say
Sorrows that I hear
Can't keep my mind away
My heart is ever near
Just can't forget about
The things that I've been told
Can't seem to let it out
I start to wonder if my heart is cold

We hear the last cry
The sound of a dying man
Don't talk to us about peace
If you won't give him a hand
We can't shut our eyes
To the pain that is in the world
Don't talk to us about God
If you don't even talk to your little girl

My dreams are swept away
Everything's too real
Don't know what I should say
Or how I'm supposed to feel
Don't want to let them go
The little things you said
God knows I love you so
I start to realize the easy answers are dead

Title : TILLBURRY TOWN
Artist : The Waiting
Album : Tillbury Town [1991]
Written by Todd Olsen
based on a poem by E.A. Robinson

TILLBURRY TOWN:

A man climbed the hill above the town below
His name was Mr. Flood and he was alone
The road was his, with not a native near
So he was free to speak
And not a soul in Tillburry Town could hear him saying
"I need a friend tonight."

"Mr. Flood, we have the harvest moon again
We won't have many more
As you and I have said it here before."
And so he sang the song For Auld Lang Syne
His weary throat gave out, but inside he shouts
"Dear God, I need you tonight."

And now he sings, not For Auld Lang Syne
He sings Amazing Grace
For he has met The Savior face to face
Track Name: Not Alone Again
Title : NOT ALONE AGAIN
Artist : The Waiting
Album : Tillbury Town [1991]
Written by Todd Olsen


NOT ALONE AGAIN:

-1-
How can it be?
You're hurting me
The love that we once had
Twist of the knife
When I ask why
You start to cry
Sometimes I want to die

CHORUS:
Not alone again, not alone again
Not alone, without you

-2-
So what went wrong?
We were so strong
And all it took was one
One goodbye
Our love goes on and on
Unending song
So why don't we just say

CHORUS:
Not alone again, not alone again
Not alone, without you
Track Name: In The Darkness
Title : IN THE DARKNESS
Artist : The Waiting
Album : Tillbury Town [1991]
Written by Todd Olsen

IN THE DARKNESS:

Can't take my eyes off of you
You're all I see here in the darkness
You're light shines in everything you do
You pour your love on when I'm heartless
In the darkness

Can't take my mind off of you
Morning comes, Sunday disappears
Monday's agony begins
Forever yearning to have you near
In the darkness

You come to me on my darkest day
Show me black and white when the world is grey
And I have nothing to fear
Because I know that you will always be near
In the darkness
Track Name: Long Time
Title : LONG TIME
Artist : The Waiting
Album : Tillbury Town [1991]
Written by Clark Leake


LONG TIME:

I don't believe that Molly Yard could ever change the world
I don't believe that little boys grow up to be little girls
I don't believe that wishing ever really made it so
I don't believe you love me you don't tell me anymore
I don't believe that suicide could ever open up any door

Some people live their lives like they're on number nine
But I'm gonna be around for a long, long time

Can't count on my lucky star, I don't know where it's at
Can't count on my fingers, I've got more sense than that
Can't count on my money, it all goes to pay my rent
Can't count on philosophy if I don't know what it meant
There's a time for counting one by one and for counting what's been spent

I don't wanna live my life in an endless nursery rhyme
I'm gonna be around for a long, long time
Some people live their lives like they're on number nine
But I'm gonna be around for a long, long time

I see the lonely people that are living around me
I see a ray of hope in a sea of misery
I see a band of angels running up and down the stairs
I see an angry world and I see a God who cares
Don't forget your mother when you kneel down to say your prayers
Track Name: Heaven Is Home
Title : HEAVEN IS HOME (Tilbury Version)
Artist : The Waiting
Album : Tillbury Town [1991]
Written by Todd Olsen

HEAVEN IS HOME:

Take my hand
Take a stand
Come with me
Heaven is Home

Take my life
Your wit's the knife
Dissect me
Heaven is Home

Take The Hand
The Holy Lamb
Who died for me
Heaven is Home
Track Name: You Know What I Mean
Title : YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN
Artist : The Waiting
Album : Tillbury Town [1991]
Written by Todd and Brad Olsen

YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN:

It's getting cold now, and I can feel the wind
Blowing in my face
I feel as though life will soon be blown apart
Blown out into space

Why do we keep on going when life is so unkind?
Guess we've got something to live for
You know what I mean
Why do we keep trying when everything turns black?
Guess we've got something to die for and we won't give it back

Once it was simple, so clearly black and white
Knowing the right way
But what's right gets shaded, and principles get lost
Convictions never stay

All That Men Could Do
by The Waiting on Thursday, May 27, 2010 at 2:01pm

Title : ALL THAT MEN COULD DO
Artist : The Waiting
Album : Tillburry Town [1991]
Written by Todd and Brad Olsen

ALL THAT MEN COULD DO:


-1-
Look out over land
See the endless fields of green grass
and you wonder where I am
Or stare into the sea
A million waves crash on the beach
and all because of Me

-2-
Look out into space
All the stars cannot compare
to the glory of My face
and all that men could do
could never match the endless gift
that I have given you

I made everything
what have you done for Me?

-3-
The things that you live for
You'd gladly trade for just a glimpse
of what you now ignore
Because all that men could do
could never match the endless gift
that I have given you

Track Name: Calico Jack
Title : CALICO JACK
Artist : The Waiting
Album : Tillburry Town [1991]

CALICO JACK:

He once had a woman, her name was Suzanne
She loved him better than life
He left her one day for a far away land but he promised to make her his wife

Calico Jack when are you coming back?
You left one year with the snow
You said "wait for me" but I'm lonely you see
Oh Calico, why did you go?

She sits all alone by her window at night
The candle burns ever so low
Her life ebbs away and it doesn't seem right just to sit there missing him so
