Let The Music Deliver Me Music and lyrics by Susan Cattaneo My face has a history It reads like a page from a diary Love’s been kinda hard on me Kept my feet to the fire But this spirit ain’t staying down No heartache’ll hold me to the ground I follow a rockin sound Taking me higher Let the music deliver me Let the rhythm jump start this jaded heart Let the music deliver me Hot wire this faded spark, Set me free Let the music deliver me It’s time for a reckoning Heaven lies in my hands on these guitar strings Sweet sounds makin’ steel cut wings Flying me home Chorus I’ve always counted on a man to make things right But only my guitar can save me tonight Let the music deliver me Let the rhythm jump start this jaded heart Let the music deliver me Hot wire this faded spark, Set me free Down on my knees Oh, Mercy me Let the music deliver me

Alice in Wonder Words and Music by Susan Cattaneo Been down that rabbit hole til I can’t see the sky Believed everything I saw In those Cheshire cat eyes Didn’t turn out just like I planned Now I wish I never had to land I’d be Alice in Wonder Amazed by all I see Alice in Wonder No ground’ll touch my feet I’ll leave behind This worried mind Alice in Wonder I’ll float up catch the sun In a field of blue See my world spinning by Get a birds eye view In that moment of clarity This life’ll make some sense to me I’ll be Alice in Wonder Amazed by all I see Alice in Wonder No ground ‘ll touch my feet I’ll leave behind What’s on my mind Always making such a fuss Over a tempest in a teacup Eyes open wide I’ll live my life Alice in Wonder Alice in Wonder

Little Big Sky Susan Kean Cattaneo/Scarlet Keys Rockin’ Fairy Music (ASCAP) Little Jay Bird Music (ASCAP) I been spending time in these city blocks Been rushing around, Don’t even have time for my thoughts These street lights don’t sparkle like southern stars do The skyscrapers feel like they’re jailing the moon I ask myself what am I doing here Cause life makes more sense where the blacktop disappears I need a Little Big Sky Where I can watch the whole sun rise Want to feel the warm wind blowing my troubles away Need a little simple I could use a little easy And miles and miles of nothing but miles I need a Little Big Sky…I need a Little Big Sky Gonna pack my bags, put the top down and drive Feel my soul exhale when I cross that county line Gonna hug my momma, drink some sweet iced tea Feel the world slow down from her front porch swing That red dirt road always leads me here And life makes more sense where the blacktop disappears I need a Little Big Sky Where I can watch the whole sun rise Want to feel the warm wind blowing my troubles away Need a little simple I could use a little easy And miles and miles of nothing but miles I need a Little Big Sky…I need a Little Big Sky I wanna go home Where you can count the stars falling Home Where my Daddy was born Home Yeah, the heartland is calling Home Is where I belong I need a Little Big Sky Where I can watch the whole sun rise Want to feel the warm wind blowing my troubles away Need a little of simple I could use a little easy And miles and miles of nothing but miles I need a Little Big Sky…I need a Little Big Sky Copyright 2006 Cattaneo/Keys

A Place Called Love Words and Music by Susan Cattaneo and Joie Scott Sometime’s my heart’s like a leaf that keeps blowin Down a long stretch highway at the mercy of the wind Wanna to settle down somewhere, yeah, that’s where I’m going But I can’t seem to get there from the places I’ve been There’s no map, no signs sayin’, you’ll find love here So I just keep on passin’ through everywhere I’ve lived a long time in heartache and I ain’t going back there Spent a few nights in paradise and that got me no where I was lost in the state of Lonely Nothing’s ever felt like home to me I been close, but not close enough Still looking for a place called love I’m on this journey with Faith ridin' shotgun And she never stops whisperin'. girl, just believe I could pull in some dusty road stop and suddenly Know in a heartbeat I found what I need. One right turn somewhere someone someday And I’ll know that’s where I’m meant to stay I’ve lived a long time in heartache and I ain’t going back there Spent a few nights in paradise and that got me no where I was lost in the state of Lonely Nothing’s ever felt like home to me I been close, but not close enough Still looking for a place called love I was lost in the state of Lonely Nothing’s ever felt like home to me I been close, but not close enough Still looking for a place called love Copyright 2006 Susan Kean Cattaneo/Joie Scott

Spare Parts 03:14
Spare Parts Cattaneo/Fitzgerald Never thought I’d find myself knocking down true love’s door I was a hit and run lover. Always leaving them wanting more But now my heart is humming, I feel a change a comin’ My heart was just a Spare Part Didn’t use it, didn’t feel a thing My heart was just a Spare Part Til your kiss changed everything Thump, thump. Thump, pounding in my chest Thump, thump, thump, baby, come on let’s catch Lighting in a bottle, drink it up and drink it in I’m reeling from this feeling, I don’t ever want this kiss to end My heart was rusted shut, but now it’s opening up My heart was just a Spare Part Didn’t use it, didn’t feel a thing My heart was just a Spare Part Til your kiss changed everything Thump, thump. thump, 100 beats a minute Thump, thump, thump, pushing love to the limit My heart is oh, so strong I feel the beat go on My heart was just a Spare Part Didn’t use it, didn’t feel a thing My heart was just a Spare Part Til your kiss changed Til your touch changed Til your love changed everything Thump, thump, thump Thump, thump, thump The beat goes on, the beat goes on

Pennies On The Rail Words and music by Susan Cattaneo Bakersville was barely on the map Just a main street and Bert’s gas and go Mom taught high school, said listen to your Dad But all Dad said was no Now me and Freddy used to hang by the tracks Hoping to catch some magic chugging on past In coal cars the color of rust We’d reach in our pockets and we’d just (put those) Pennies on the rail We laughed and didn’t care Two kids with too much time to spend We’d listen for the humming The 405 was coming right on time The whistle blowing as it charged right by In a flash of sparks and nails Pennies on the rail Pennies on the rail Diving in the quarry, floating in the blue Dreaming we were gonna change a world or two Swinging high in the Sycamore trees Man, it was great to be thirteen When the sun was golden and the pavement hot We’d head down to Bert’s for soda pop Then down to the tracks and the clover He’d kiss me then pull me in closer (Like two) chorus A penny don’t go far these days It ain’t worth much at all But between us, honey All it takes is a cent To take us back to way back when putting chorus

Better Day 04:10
Better Day Words and music by Susan Cattaneo When that blue rain is coming down like crazy The broken sky couldn’t get more dark And every breath is tight and aching Cause thunder’s crashing in your heart How do you make it through the never ending hours What’re you gonna do to find a clear way out Sometimes you’ll cry, sometimes you’ll rage Wish for a sign and wait For a Better Day, for a Better Day You never know how life can change you The twist and tangle of the thread But let your family’s love surround you Lean on the shoulders of your friends We’ll hold on to you so you can hold on And you’ll make it through so you just hold on Be strong Sometimes you’ll cry Sometimes you’ll pray Til you can find your way To that Better Day. To that Better Day You carry your hope Your carry your faith Your light in the darkness Your spirit, your strength And when it gets hard Now, don’t you give up Cause we carry your love We carry your love We carry your love Sometimes you’ll cry, sometimes you’ll rage Sometimes you’ll laugh, sometimes you’ll pray for a Better Day. Til you find that Better Day.
