Track Name: Diane
Diane, Diane, can you hear what I say?
My love is so strong though you’re miles away
It defies any distance so wherever I am
I’m saving my love for you, dearest Diane.

I’m saving my love and it’s stored in this sound
So listen my love when I’m not around
In a moment inspired - a minute alone
I record you a message on my dictaphone.

Sometimes I ask myself: Why am I here?
With murder and violence following me
But I’ve taken this job and I’ll follow it through
And dream of the day when I’m home with you
Track Name: Looking for the Answer
I’m down on my knees looking for the answer.

We all knew her
Taught and schooled her
We all adored her
But we ignored her

Who’s to blame?
Are we all to blame?
Track Name: The Owls are not What They Seem
See how they stare, the night is in their eyes
Poised and prepared, nobody can hide
Statuesquely still, watching as we slide

Horses hum a haunting melody
Kestrels in a quiet reverie
Whispering to me that

The owls are not what they seem, round here.

Can you hear the sound of feathers in the air?
Can you feel the eyes fix you with a stare?
Will you let the owls catch you unaware?

Horses hum a haunting melody
Kestrels in a quiet reverie
Whispering to me that

The owls are not what they seem, round here.
Track Name: Sheriff Truman
Woah! Sifting sand
Solving them crimes with Sheriff Truman

He stands up for what is right
A leading light for the good fight
A pure and honest beating heart
Eye is keen and mind is smart
Josie lights his loving flame
But does she really feel the same?
Problems are a-coming still
There’s trouble at the mill

Sheriff Truman – what a true man
A very true man – Sheriff Truman

Hawk tracked down the one-armed man
Following footsteps in the sand
Andy can’t help what he’s done
With a shaking hand he dropped that gun

Sheriff Truman – what a true man
A very true man – Sheriff Truman
Track Name: New Shoes
Shelly's got a secret
Leo's got a shotgun
Horne needs a hit-man
Everybody wants one
Blood on his shirt, he's hurting Shelly
But Bobby's medicine is sweet
Shelly's in her dressing gown
When Hank comes riding into town
But all that Leo really wants are his new shoes!

Leo threw a football
Bobby let his hair flop
Trying to make a truck stop
Shelly gave her best shot
Howling, howling animals
Over the border and back again
Shelly's in her dressing gown
When Hank comes riding into town
But all that Leo really wants are his new shoes!
Track Name: Lady of the Log
My log can tell you
My log can tell you secrets
So listen
Listen
I’m the lady of the log

My log can show you
My log has seen the forest
So ask it
Just ask it
I’m the lady of the log

Spirits in the trees
The damp smell of decaying and
The fresh rain on the leaves
The heavy air of expectation
Brings you to your knees
Counting the concentric rings they
Number seventeen
Voices of the forest set me free!

My log can tell you
My log can tell you secrets
So listen
Listen
I’m the lady of the log

So listen
Just listen
I’m the lady of the log
