Track Name: Cool Water
Cool Water
Chris Falson
© 1992 Leather Chair Songs

It’s been such a long time
And you so far away
But I remember every word you said
Yes I treasured them 'till this day

Cool water, cool water
Cool water over me

I’ve been walking some rocky roads
For many days
And I need some inspiration
And a little lovin' would not go astray

Cool water…

What can I do, what can I say
To bring you back to me
Where can I go for those sad eyes
Track Name: One Day
One Day

There’s a star in the sky
Don’t know why but he’s watching me
And he shines through the night
Throwing light into my room

If the moon weren’t shy
He’d catch my eye
And take it to his face
There’s a trace of a tear
It’s for you

One Day without you
Is like a hundred years
In a cold and weary land
One day without you
Only a fool would stay away

I awake early morn
Where the sun is born to the day
Take a walk along the sand
Try to understand

Oh the picture has so many
Little missing pieces
But a blind man could see
I need you

One day…

I thought by now that you’d have
Called it a day
But the sun keeps shining
And the world keeps turning
I can’t believe it but I’ve drifted away
And you keep calling my name
Track Name: Good People
Good People

Leather Chair Songs

Good people stay through stormy weather
That beats the house
Built on rock and lasts forever

Good people love through adversity
Though they are hurt
They forgive their enemy

For they have learned the secret
Hidden from the wise
They have learned the secret
Of love

Good people give to the needy and the poor
No matter the cost
Someone gave them so much more

Good people fight for the souls of man
Not flesh and blood
So only some will understand
Track Name: Jamming with the Angels
Jamming with the Angels

Leather Chair Songs

I hear angels
Jamming on my roof top
They take this house of mine
Into heaven
Oh they’re having a good time
Watching over me
They take this heart of mine
Into heaven

It’s another world
Oh up on the rooftop
It’s another world
Jamming with the angels

Teach me a new song
I need a song from the future
I’ll sing it to the world
A song from heaven
No more bringing in the sheaves
Those days are gone
You got to get a little rhythm
To sing in heaven

It’s another world…

Angels sing darkness fades away
Peace on earth, how do I feel?
I’ve got to jam the night away

Sing me a new song
I need a song from the future
I’ll sing it to the world
A song from heaven
No more rock of ages cleft for me
Those days are gone
You got to get a little rhythm
To sing in heaven
Track Name: Wake Up
Wake Up

Leather Chair Songs

Day after day I’m at the watchtower
And what I see brings sleepless nights
Whoever tells you Babylon has fallen
Don’t believe a word they say

Wake up, wake up
Wake up, wake up
All you people
Wake up, come on wake up
There are giants in the land

Wake up oh sleeper
It’s time for wailing
You’ve left your post for last time
Turn on your TV and watch it as it happens
The invasion of our land

Wake up….
Track Name: Who Do You Love?
Who Do You Love

It’s on everybody’s lips, everybody’s mind
It’s in all the daily papers and the news at night
A day without it mentioned you’ll never find
Some say money makes your world go round

If you work real hard night and day
Learn to sow some seed and put some away
You’ll have something for that rainy day
Some say money makes your world go round

But tell me, who do you love?
Who do you love?
Who do you love?
Who do you love?
Tell me, who do you love?

It puts food on the table and it pays the rent
And sometimes you know it must be heaven sent
But with or without, rich or poor
Can you tell me who you’re working for

Buy a 747 or a TV station
You need a lotta cash to take this nation
Yeah money ain't that bad
But don’t let me hear you say
Money makes your world go round
Track Name: Ease the Pain
Ease the Pain

Leather Chair Songs

I’m looking for a man who can dig a little deeper
Walk in one direction and not look back
He won’t mind getting his hands a little dirty
He’ll do anything he can to
Ease the pain

I won’t be searching through the yellow pages
I won’t be ringing universities
In the middle of the day while the sun is hot
I’ll be looking in the field for the man who can
Ease the pain

I’m looking for a man who can see the big picture
And follow it through till the credits roll
I want his heart but I’ll give him my name
And keep a place for the man who can
Ease the pain

There has to be one man
Who’ll hear me cry and do all he can
He won’t care what the papers say
I tell you he will suffer… but he will
Ease the pain
Track Name: I AM Waiting
I am Waiting
© 1992 Chris Falson
Leather Chair Songs

I’m in a dry and weary land
Where the desert song has died
Like a river with no water
My soul it thirsts for you

I am waiting
I am waiting
I am waiting
For you

Every mountain looks so inviting
Until the day I have to climb
But climb I will up where the eagles fly
If I could only touch the sky

I am waiting…

I hear the footsteps
Of a thousand marching angels (men)
Go off to war
I hear them call my name
To follow them to war
But I’m not moving
Till the rains come down

Thunder and lightening shoot across the sky
Angels heralding your arrival
I hear the earth move in anticipation
Can you feel my heart a tremble?
Track Name: Wind in His hair/Can You Go The Distance
Can You Go The Distance?
© 1992 Chris Falson
Leather Chair Songs

Show me a man without a dream
There’s a man with no future
Do you think I’m crazy following my dream?
Man it’s got a hold on me

Can you go the distance
Make it across that line
Or are you growing weary
Of all the people watching you
Can you go the distance
Make it to the end
And write your name in glory

Can you dream that dream night and day
Can you reach out and touch it
I can feel it breathing deep within my soul
It’s living inside of me

Can you go the distance…

Ooh I’m looking for a somewhere
Some people call it heaven
But somehow I get this feeling
This is the place
The place where dreams come true

Sometimes this dream weighs too much
I wish it would fade away
But what would I be without that dream
Just a man with no future

Can you go the distance…
