  • I collected a few wild turkey feathers, washed them, then burned a line from the song "Shook Me" onto a leather strip and attached it with a metal ring for hanging-reminding us that we are stronger than we know. Each one is slightly different

I get high because I want to win I‘ll ride the peace train for love Pain it goes out like a spark like a flame Dust myself off and get back in the game Words pour out of my head in the rain I’m sorry I don’t like to talk that much I like to sing and swing for the stars I’ll sing I put down what I want to say But only after I’ve tried Maybe we’ll talk again before long When you’re feeling alright, I’ll play this song Something’s not right if something feels wrong I’m sorry I can’t fix everything I cannot be that for you I just don’t know what to do I like to sing and swing for the stars I’ll sing You could smash it to bits but I don’t feel that way No different than you I just want to play I’d rather not talk but pressed I will say I’m sorry I can’t fix everything I cannot be that for you I just don’t know what to do I like to sing and (Swing for the stars) I’ll sing I’ll sing (and Swing for the stars) I’ll sing (Swing for the stars) I’ll sing I’ll sing I’ll sing I’ll sing

Shook Me 03:09
What shouldnta been has come to pass No one says life will last Some people just get longer To ache is understood grievin’s right Time to live an’ put up a fight It only makes you stronger Cold water on my face Taken from this place Cold water on my face Shook Me Shook Me Give me the torch I was born to run Every day’s life in the sun The pain will make it better Now’s time to live not time to die After I run you will see me fly The rock is now a feather Cold water on my face Taken from this place Cold water on my face Shook Me Shook Me My eyes have been opened The words have been spoken My eyes have been opened My heart has been broken for me Do it for me Cold water on my face Taken from this place Cold water on my face Shook Me, Oh Cold water on my face I’m standing here through grace Cold water on my face Shook Me Shook Me Shook Me Shook Me

Death's Door 03:34
I was at Death’s Door when I turned back So tired, worn out, trapped I was at Death’s Door but I looked back Wreckless, fragile, cracked Where are you now How far away Where did you go How could you stay I was at Death’s Door when I looked back Speeding, careening off track Where are you now How far away Where did you go Why did you stay Many times I hear you Many times I see you Many times I’m near you Many times I’m with you In the middle of the night an’ it feels so right In the middle of the night an’ it feels so right In the middle of the night and I feel alright In the middle of the night an’ it feels so right I was at Death’s Door but I turned back So empty full of lack I was at Death’s Door but I pulled back This wrung out strung out hack

Someday 03:34
Someday Someday You were not what I was intending You were not what I was expecting A fish out of water Struggles to breathe Adrift on an ocean I can never leave I can never leave I can never leave I can never leave Someday Someday Nothing I thought I’d ever need You were the chart I failed to read A search for the surface Am I going down A scream under water Will it make a sound Do I make a sound Does it make a sound Do I make a sound Does it make a sound And I’ll meet you there --------with flowers in my hair And I’ll meet you there’ with flowers in my hair And I’ll meet you there’ with flowers in my hair Someday Someday Someday there will be a place for us Someday Someday there will be a place for us Someday Someday

Bell Tolls 02:54
The ball rolls the bell tolls but not for you You’ve escaped this time what are you gonna to do? The ground froze the land rose in front of you ‘Cuz it’s not your time, what are you gonna do? Sit around and watch the paint dry? That’s not gonna do Waste your life don’t even try? Until it tolls for you This will pass, it goes fast out of view But ya feel just fine, what are you gonna do? The earth spins you give in the deepest blue Where to draw the line, what are you gonna do? Sit around and watch the paint dry? That’s not gonna do Run the clock until goodbye? Is life just to get through People die but you’re alive’ you’re alive, you’re alive People die but you’re alive’, you’re alive you’re alive The ball rolls the bell tolls but not for you but not for You…but not for you Uuuuuuu Uuuuu but not for you but not for you but not for you but not for you but not for you but not for you but not for you you you you you but not for you but not for you but not for you but not for you but not for you but not for you you you you You
