    "Closer"

    The water is deep and the river wide
    My face to the wind against the tide
    This boat is small and the night is black
    The storm is raging but I won't turn
    Back to the shallows where I ran aground
    In the muck, in the mire of the shame and doubt
    And all the lies that they ever told
    I'll be damned if the devil's gonna sink my soul

    I'm getting close, closer
    I can almost touch the north star
    I'm getting close, closer
    This little boat's the hand of God

    The water is deep and the river wide
    There's a porch light burning on the other side
    I can hear my name sung sweet and low
    The voice of my mother calling me home
    Beyond the limits of my mortal mind
    Where grace abounds and love is blind
    These old bones are gonna disappear
    With the hate, the worry and all my fear

    I'm getting close, closer
    I can almost touch the north star
    I'm getting close, closer
    This little boat's the hand of God

    I'm getting close, closer
    I can almost touch the north star
    I'm getting close, closer
    This little boat's the hand of God
    This little boat's the hand of God

    She reminds me of Alison Krauss

    Alison Krauss - The Lucky One



    "The Lucky One"

    You're the lucky one
    So i've been told
    As free as the wind,
    Blowin' down the road
    Loved by many, hated by none
    I'd say you're lucky 'cause I know what you've done
    Not a care in the world
    Not a worry in sight
    Everything's gunna be alright
    Cause you're the lucky one

    You're the lucky one
    Always havin' fun
    A jack of all trades a master none
    You look at the world with a smilin' eye
    And laugh at the devil as his train goes by

    Give you a song and a one night stand
    And you'll be looking at a happy man
    'cause you're the lucky one.

    Well you're blessed i guess
    By never knowing which road your choosin.
    To you the next best thing
    To playin and winning is playin and losing

    You're the lucky one i know that now
    Don't ask you why, when, where, or how
    You look at the world thru your smilin' eye
    And laugh at the devil as his train goes by

    Give you a song and a one night stand
    And you'll be looking at a happy man
    'cause you're the lucky one

    Well you're blessed i guess
    By never knowing which road your choosin.
    To you the next best thing
    To playin and winning is playin and losing

    You're the lucky one i know that now
    Don't ask you why, when, where, or how
    No matter where you're at, it's where you'll be
    You can bet your luck won't follow me
    Just give you a song and a one night stand
    And you'll be looking at a happy man
    Cause you're the lucky one.

    Shawn Colvin - Wichita Skyline

    Shawn Colvin - Wichita Skyline



    Down at the train they go
    To Independence everyday
    Yeah, but anywhere else now
    Seems like a million miles away
    And I must have been high
    To believe that I would ever leave
    Now I'm just a flat fine line
    Like the Wichita skyline
    I rode on the air stream
    Across the great lonesome afternoon
    And I wished hard enough to hurt
    Drove fast enough to catch the moon
    And I must have been dreamin' again
    'Cause there's nothin' around the bend
    Except for that flat fine line
    The Wichita skyline
    Well, as far as Salina
    I can get that good station from Larue
    And I'm searchin' the dial while
    I'm scanning the sky for a patch of blue
    And I watch the black clouds roll in
    Chasin' me back again
    Back to the flat fine line
    The Wichita skyline,
    The Wichita skyline
    The Wichita skyline
