Laxxor An utterly sublime album of smooth melodies and warm voice. I can't believe no-one else has written a review yet! Listen in a darkened room with a good glass of your favorite. Favorite track: Come on Honey.

Little boy not yet a man I’m a girl from the same town We both live where the orange grows I see your face, so brown in the sun We are playing n’ having fun And I can feel what you’re running from Cause I know what the differences Yes I know what the difference are Been on this screen for so long There’s someone with the same hood on, they’re asleep now and gone Down the street You walk me home We need each other to not feel alone The more alive You seem, suspicion grows Cause I know what the differences Yes I know what the difference are Same birthday, same sign Same hope for peace of mind You were young then, now I’m old Same country, same school, Same teachers, same fools, We’re living life with different rules Cause I know what the differences between us are Yes I know what the differences between us are Cause I know what the differences between us are Yes I know what the differences between us are

Tullahoma 03:12
Some man asked me what I was looking for, Just a sunset on the city, don’t wanna think about how to make money There’s a place I know and it’s nice they say Where they dance and they dance and they dance like they just got paid Oh Tullahoma, here I come Oh Tullahoma, gonna get me some Oh Tullahoma, don’t you follow me Oh Tullahoma, just wanna be free Gotta get out, gotta get outta here Everybody I know is in a band dressed up in that country fried gear There’s a place I know and it ain’t too far Well it could be boring but maybe I could be a star Oh Tullahoma, here I come Oh Tullahoma, gonna get me some Oh Tullahoma, don’t you follow me Oh Tullahoma, just wanna be free

Come on honey, hold my hand This world is too much, we can’t stand Come on honey, hold my hand Come on honey, hold my hand Come on over, see my life I’m not tidy and I struggle in strife Come on over, see my life Come on over, see my life Well you hear it everyday on the radio waves You can hear it in the voices and the way they say If there’s one thing I can hear them saying to me Well If It’s the end of the world, I’m not giving up yet If it’s the end of the world , I’m not giving up yet Come outside, see the sky Can’t stop the green from growing or the vines from climbing high Come outside and see the sky Come outside and see the sky Come on baby, let me soothe your head You can’t hide from us cause we will find you We will find you We will find you, you, you Well you hear it everyday on the radio waves You can hear it in the voices and the way they say If there’s one thing I can hear them saying to me Well If It’s the end of the world, I’m not giving up yet If it’s the end of the world , I’m not giving up yet

You take me outside in the sun You say I’m your one and only one I stand right by your side And watch how the green fills your eyes Cause I have loved this man my whole life Hope he understands I will abide Those loving Eyes, Those Loving Eyes We lay on side by side in the grass All the flies go buzzing past But its time to hit the road I wish that every bluebird could know That I have loved this man my whole life Hope he understands I will abide Those loving Eyes, Those Loving Eyes Trust me to behave I know it’s hard We’ve seen so many days Too many apart I know to be good when your gone Cause I’ve had to wait for so long Your day is filled with so much more than mine I hope that you choose me everytime Cause I have loved this man my whole life Hope he understands I will abide Those loving Eyes, Those Loving Eyes

Weather 03:20
When you move somewhere new The weather is your only friend You know when it's coming, again and again It's the hush of the leaves Lets you know it's moving It's all turning again and again And I cry thinking of you And I try to change what I do But this weather is you And I had to leave Cause there was nothing I could dream of That wasn't made of something I knew The storms howling And my life cracks like lightning Onto the floor again and again And I cry thinking of you And I try to change what I do But this weather is you And the sun goes down And the moon comes out  When it wants to find us out And the waves build up And the tide pulls in Onto the shore again and again And I cry thinking of you And I try to change what I do And I cry thinking of you And I try to change what I do This weather is you
