  • 03:17 Story Lyrics
    In The World

    The road’s a washout

    And there’s no sun out

    In the world

    Daydreams on the line

    Laundry on the vine

    In the world

    The passion she fakes

    The bruises she takes

     

    It’s another daybreak

    Another heartache in the world

     

    Pencils help the sting

    Lipstick makes her sing

    In the world

    But there’s cuts unseen

    A Covergirl queen

    In the world

    And what keeps her hungry

    Is the fear to die

     

    It’s another daybreak

    Another heartache in the world

     

    Instrumental

     

    She’s worn the mask so long

    Can’t see right from wrong

    In the world

    But it’s deep inside her

    The strength to guide her

    In the world

    The soul she’s forgotten

    Is the one she needs the most

     

    It’s another daybreak

    Another heartache in the world

    Yeah it’s another daybreak

    Another heartache in the world

    In the world

    In the world

    In the world

    Man of The Cloth

    You gave your life in service to the Lord

    You took no wife to honor that accord

    You needed love you found in other ways

    And now your life, you’ll spend it in a cage

     

    Chorus:

    You gave your life

    Sacrifice

    Love’s denied

    To a man of the cloth

     

    The highest priest cannot lie of his desire

    You’re not a beast, whose fire can be retired

    You’ll have the urge, you’ll have to purge

    It’s so unjust, you’re a victim of your lust

     

    Chorus:

    You gave your life

    Sacrifice

    Love’s denied

    To a man of the cloth

     

    Bridge:

    If you could love, like other men

    You’d save your soul and never bend

    But you had no choice

    You knew it had to be

    So you hid your voice of sexuality

     

    Chorus:

    You gave your life

    Sacrifice

    Love’s denied

    To a man of the cloth

    Repeat: Ooh a man of the cloth

    Beautiful You

    Lying in the folds of you

    I am so alive

    You hold my soul in your hands

    Beautiful you

    Beautiful you

     

    Every pore of you

    I feel inside me

    You’re my fantasy

    Beautiful you

    I love you

     

    Our love spans all time

    Our love knows no lies

     

    There is only one of us

    Through eternity

    I am you, you are me

    Beautiful you

    I love you

     

    Our love fills the skies

    Our love knows no lies

     

    Instrumental

     

    Beautiful you

    I love you

    Beautiful you

    I love you

    Let Me Be

    The man who’s inside you                                                   

    Is not who I see

    Where did they hide you

    Is it just from me

    Oh

     

    The currents of rivers

    Lead to the sea

    Once they engulf you

    They won’t set you free

     

    Oh, oh me

    Why can’t you let me be

    Free

     

    Instrumental:  

     

    Dangerous partners

    A world full of fears

    Shocking the system

    Stealing my tears

     

    Oh, oh me

    Why can’t you let me be

    Repeat

    Yeah……

    Precious One

    Flying through the sky

    Filled my dreams you and I

    Now I’m planted on the ground

    ‘cause you’re no longer around

     

    I’m looking for a thrill

    Only you can fill

    I’m broken and in pain

    You go on just the same

     

    Chorus:

    And I just want to fly with you

    I still need that high from you

    But all I do is cry for you precious one

    Ooh precious one

     

    Sometimes dreams have to end

    Until we dream again

    Every night while I sleep

    I search for dreams I can keep

     

    Chorus:

    And I just want to fly with you

    I still need that high from you

    But all I do is cry for you precious one

    Ooh precious one

     

    As my life journeys on

    I’ll forget what has gone

    Someday I’ll find a new

    One as loved as you

     

    Chorus:

    And I just want to fly with you

    I still need that high from you

    But all I do is cry for you precious one

    Ooh precious one

    Mother Theresa

    A gun for each child holds fear at bay 

    Kill or be killed, it’s natures way 

    For thousands of years we’ve disagreed 

    Shoot down my faith, but why shoot me? 

     

    Chorus:

    If Mother Theresa were king (rest in peace)

    Forever more 

    How could she change anything? (rest in peace) 

    With famine and war in this world

     

    Peace by attack, is not the way 

    It’s time to look back, rewrite that play 

     

    Chorus:

    If Mother Theresa were king (rest in peace) 

    Forever more 

    How could she change anything? (rest in peace) 

    With famine and war in this world

     

    Instrumental

     

    So where does it stop this deadly run? 

    The king on the throne can’t get it done 

    The choice must be made by everyone 

    The power of love ten times the gun

     

    Chorus:

    If Mother Theresa were king (rest in peace) 

    Forever more 

    How could she change anything (rest in peace) 

    With famine and war

    If Mother Theresa were king (rest in peace) 

    Forever more 

    How could she change anything? (rest in peace) 

    With famine and war in this world

    The Gardener

    You’ve been rooted here

    For thirty years or more

    Standing all alone

    Outside my door

     

    You blossomed every spring

    Withstood the winter’s air

    Helped birds to find their wing

    Somehow it isn’t fair

     

    Chorus:

    But the house is falling down

    Flying timbers all around

    I tried to have you moved nearby

    But the gardener says you’ll have to die

    The gardener says you’ll have to die

     

    They’ll cut you to your knees

    Uproot you like a tooth

    Then when it’s all done

    They’ll find me someone new

     

    Chorus:

    But the house is falling down

    Flying timbers all around

    I tried to have you moved nearby

    But the gardener says you’ll have to die

    The gardener says you’ll have to die

     

    I’ll think of you each day

    Though I didn’t know you’re name

    You’re just like one of us

    Nobody is the same

     

    Chorus:

    But the house is falling down

    Flying timbers all around

    I tried to have you moved nearby

    But the gardener says you’ll have to die

    The gardener says you’ll have to die

    The gardener says you’ll have to die

    You're My Guy

    How can I trust you when you say that you love me

    When any fool can see I’m not the best company

    I tried to push you away with my temper and crazy days

    I called you a liar my innocent prey

     

    So why do you stay day after day

    After all I’ve put you through

    I’d think that you’d say we’re through

     

    Chorus:

    But you keep on lovin’ me

    I swear I don’t know why

    I’m just so happy

    That you’re my guy

     

    Well I always thought you’d leave me

    My worst nightmare come true

    So I put up my defenses just in case you do

    But you’ve stayed by my side

    It’s been so very long that I’m starting to think that

    Maybe I was wrong

     

    Chorus:

    But you keep on lovin’ me

    I swear I don’t know why

    I’m just so happy

    That you’re my guy

     

    Instrumental

     

    But you’ve stayed by my side

    It’s been so very long that I’m starting to think that

    Maybe I was wrong

     

    Chorus:

    But you keep on lovin’ me

    I swear I don’t know why

    I’m just so happy

    That you’re my guy

    Repeat:

    I’m just so happy that you’re my guy 2X

    Goodbye Old Friend

    Goodbye old friend, goodbye

    Though these words are hard to say

    I’ll whisper them with a sigh

    Goodbye old friend, goodbye

     

    Your smile, your laugh, I’ll crave

    Every day that you’re not here

    The memories I can save

    Your voice I still can hear

     

    Like a fire you warmed my heart

    With goodness, hope and light

    Like a star your light still shines

    Somewhere far from my sight

     

    Goodbye old friend, goodbye

    Though these words are hard to say

    I’ll whisper them with a sigh

    Goodbye old friend, goodbye

     

    (Instrumental)

     

    Your touch, your smell, your feel

    I still can sense you near

    You are locked within my soul

    Of your love I have no fear

     

    So goodbye old friend, goodbye

    Though these words are hard to say

    The wonder of your life

    Goodbye old friend, goodbye

    Goodbye old friend, goodbye

    You Don't Know Me

    Your voice, it was the first voice that I heard

    Deep and strong and I hung on every word

    Echoed lessons throughout my life

    They cut me like a knife

    I didn’t do Harvard and I can’t find Yale

    ‘Cause I’m not looking for that Holy Grail

     

    Chorus:

    But you don’t know me, I should make you very proud

    I’m not some little girl, just lost out in the crowd

    but you don’t trust me, to take care of myself

    I may not suit you, but I won’t be someone else

    ‘Cause you don’t know me

    No you don’t know me

     

    The one I love doesn’t fit your style

    He don’t have money, or a 3-piece suit and tie

    But he loves me like no other can

    You don’t give a damn

    You don’t approve of my house or job

    My clothes, my hair or my blah, blah, blah

     

    Chorus:

    But you don’t know me, I should make you very proud

    I’m not some little girl, just lost out in the crowd

    No you don’t trust me, to take care of myself

    I may not suit you, but I won’t be someone else

    ‘Cause you don’t know me

    No you don’t know me

     

    Bridge

    I’m not one of your people

    You can’t force me in a mold

    I won’t do what I’m told

     

    Chorus:

    You don’t know me, I should make you very proud

    I’m not some little girl, just lost out in the crowd

    I know you love me, even though you make me mad

    I’m still your daughter, you’ll always be my dad

    But you don’t know me

    No you don’t know me

    Life Takes Time

    Life takes time, answers don’t come too easily

    Life takes time, and I’m praying you’ll stay with me

     

    Saw you drown in your fears

    Sadness pulled you under

    My heart dragged you to shore

     

    Life takes time, answers don’t come too easily

    Life takes time, you need strength just to hold on

     

    Feel your lips on my chest

    You alone can free me

    God designed you for me

     

    Life takes time, drop the bags that you carry

    Life takes time, to our past we are married

     

    Free your soul from the rage

    Feed your heart’s desire

    Leave the rest to time

     

    Part 1 ending                                                                                                                         

    Life takes time, Life takes time

    Life takes time that we’ve thrown away

    Life takes time

    Life takes time and I’ve wasted time

    Life takes time

    Life takes time but we’ll find our way

    Life takes time

     

    Part 2 ending harmonies

    Life takes time

    Answers don’t come too easily

    Life takes time

    I see more than your beauty

    Life takes time

    We can do this now baby

    Life takes time

    And I’m prayin’ you’ll stay with me

    My Heart Ain't Broke (so don't fix it)

    Chorus

    My heart ain’t broke so don’t fix it                                                                                         

    Although I’m sure we’d have a real good time

    My heart ain’t broke so don’t you fix it no

    ‘cause the last fix is doing me just fine

     

    Well you look like the kind of man who could love me  

    And make me feel the way a woman should        

    Well the last guy I saw who had your looks

    He tore my heart out with his hooks

    So good bye who needs you, not me

     

    Chorus

    ‘Cause my heart ain’t broke so don’t fix it          

    Although I’m sure we’d have a real good time

    My heart ain’t broke so don’t you fix it no

    ‘cause the last fix is doing me just fine 

     

    Instrumental break                                              

     

    Bridge:

    Sometimes a heart needs a little time for healing     

    Before it’s time to take that leap again

    My heart just put a stop to it’s last bleedin’

    So I’ll sit this one out if you don’t mind

     

    Chorus

    ‘Cause my heart ain’t broke so don’t fix it         

    Although I’m sure we’d have a real good time

    My heart ain’t broke so don’t you fix it no

    ‘cause the last fix is doing me just fine

    Yes the last fix is doing me just fine                   

    And my heart it’s been fixed a million times

    The Lucky One

    I smell your neck, I kiss your hand

    I stroke your cheek, I understand                   

    Your little heart, so close to mine

    Those tiny feet, just make me cry                                             

                      

    Chorus:

    ‘cause you’re my baby sent here from God

    And I’m the one that you’ll call Mom

    Yea you’re my baby sent here from God

    And I’m the one, yea I’m the one                    

    The lucky one

     

    Your tender lips, that suckle sweet

    The smell of love, you’re so complete

    Your silky skin, your tummy round

    You will always make me proud

     

    Chorus:

    ‘cause you’re my baby sent here from God

    And I’m the one that you’ll call Mom

    Yea you’re my baby sent here from God

    And I’m the one, yea I’m the one

    The lucky one

     

    Those chunky legs, and toes to eat

    Your precious face, is just so sweet

    I see your smile, I hush your cry

    And so I’ll sing this lullaby

     

    Chorus:

    ‘cause you’re my baby sent here from God

    And I’m the one that you’ll call Mom

    Yea you’re my baby sent here from God

    And I’m the one, yea I’m the one

    The lucky one

NOTES
ANGEL PAINT BIO


Country Standard Time Magazine has described their sound as "If Neil Young mated with The Indigo Girls". Angel Paint's signature sound comes from the heart and soul of singer/songwriter Jeanne Bonansinga. A performer since age 13, Jeanne fell in love with the acoustic guitar and the styles of artists like Neil Young, Lucinda Williams and Emmy Lou Harris. Their folk-rock-Americana sound features searing harmonica support by Jeanne's husband Jay Bonansinga and layers of harmony vocals by singer supreme Caroline Milligan as well as Jay Bonansinga. This acoustic trio has been attracting fans since 1996 in clubs and festivals as well as more intimate surroundings. With the debut of their CD "In the World", Angel Paint has plugged in and added a full band. With the amazing talents of producer Andon T. Davis, this CD rocks while always honoring the acoustic roots that drive their sound. Bonansinga's songs take on a diverse register of topics from abused women and Catholic priests, to songs of love and loss. The power-pop cut "The Gardener" and the heartwarming ballad "The Lucky One" display the full range of goodies to uncover in this debut CD. The band hails from Chicago Illinois and can be reached through their website at www.angel-paint.com.
