"Young and Brave" Do you even know what you are running from? There’s a woman and her eyes. There’s a man out on a wire. I’m thinking back to the time we had… We were young and brave I can still hear you say, “I’m coming straight for your heart. Coming straight for your heart”. Are you ocean blue? Are you new wave new? With a knife I can fight. With machines I cannot. We’ll pay the rent. And make the neighbors split. We’re still young and brave I can still hear you say… “I’m coming straight for your heart. Coming straight for your heart” You’re just running in the dark from a hunter on the mark. I’m coming straight for your heart. I’m coming straight for your heart. We’re just running in the dark… runnin’ in the dark.” Coming straight for you heart. I’m coming straight for your heart. You’re just running in the dark, running in the dark.

Here 4 U Now 04:20
“Here 4 U Now” I couldn’t hear you then But I hear you now Like a reigning sound Never so loud Little needles of rain Hit the desert again Upon the winds of change I will sail right in Not on this watch Not on this life Not when you’re broken down Whatever the need Whatever the means It will be met It’s destinies debt Through a riot crowd I swill swim and shout Let feedback sing Let the riot ring Not on this watch Not on this life Not when you’re crying out I’m Here 4 U Now I’m Here 4 U Now Now means now I’m Here 4 U Now Not on this watch Not on this life Not when you’re battled down I’m Here 4 U Now Still Here 4 U Now Now means now I’m Here 4 U Now Here through the day Here through the night Here with gentleness Here for the fight I’m HERE 4 U NOW

Where were you the night when rock & roll was in the news? Where were you the night all hell broke loose? Were your hands stuck in tight jeans on Woodland Avenue? Where were you the night when rock & roll was in the news? Where were you the day when the tornado blew? Were you out there Slow Bar jiving, Greg Garing cool? Was your fist stuck on your chin down on Woodland Avenue? Where were you the day when the tornado blew? There came a light, right from our eyes Head steady tight, we will fight for our time There came a light, right from our eyes Head steady tight, we will fight we will fight Now they're tearing down the old just to bring up the new With the jivers sock hopping thinking cigarettes are cool Where the Esquires once rocked it down on Woodland Avenue Are you staring down the old while they bring up the new? There came a light, right from our eyes Head steady tight, we will fight for our time There came a light, right from our eyes Head steady tight, we will fight we will fight Where were you the night when rock & roll was in the noose? Where you the night when all hell broke loose? Drunk walkin' to Lower Broad where Phil Hummer hung the Full Moon Where were you the night when rock & roll was in the noose?

Outlive Me 03:52
You are a hurricane, I am the beach You ain’t gonna outlive me Arms around my demons Hugging them like a friend You ain’t gonna outlive me You are an avalanche, I am the peak You ain’t gonna roll over me Arms around my demons Heart waving like a flag You ain’t gonna outlive me I am sharp, like a knife I will never be dull Like a dart, in the eye I will never be dull You are a grizzly, I am a bee You ain’t gonna F with me You are a bully, come on and take a swing You ain’t gonna forget me I am sharp, like a knife I will never be dull Like a dart, in the eye I will never be dull I am sharp I’m alive

Sunset, MO 03:43
“Sunset, MO” Out west of town my skin was pale. Kelly Robinson said,“Son, you must go there.” They call it the court, but there ain’t no judge. And the baseline is where the braves ones run. Wore my true colors, ‘cuz all else told, “Don’t ever go to Sunset, boy. Don’t ever go there after dark. In Sunset, Missouri the snake is the charmer. Don’t. Don’t.” Those colors were black and they were red. Broke as a loke and just don’t care. We walked through the valley with nothing but love. Using the word “schooly” like it was a drug. ‘Little Squeeb’ growing up, catching the buzz. “Don’t ever go to Sunset, boy. Don’t ever go there after dark. Unless a black preacher’s gonna guard your heart. Don’t. Don’t.” Tim Johnson don’t care about us none. Don’t give me none of that “Robert (Johnson)” folklore stuff. Gwish was on the corner pressing his luck. I was in the back of Uncle Mike’s green pick up. You been to Clarksdale? ...whatever player. I got a devil of my own. Came to me when the sun was showin’. Came to me in Sunset, I was nine years old. Came to me in Sunset via Cairo. So now I’m going to Cairo to settle the score. “Don’t ever go to Cairo, boy. Don’t ever go there on your own.” I’ll bring a gypsy woman that bangs a drum.

Street Fight 04:09
“Street Fight” I popped the lock on heaven’s gate The bright lights and sinking fates Just off Woodland at half past 8 Sit still, deal the thrill Tip my hat from brim to bill Then move on up the hill Stepping out on the same old street Mid December but I’m packing heat Like tractor beams we’re locking eyes Tell me baby what is your desire Tell me why I’m the man to hire The hourglass is dying Down the alley there was a street fight Passed the van, there up on the right Take the cash, there’s no other plan Make it fast, that’s why you’re the man Fire fast don’t feel the pain The forecast is slow today Hit the pedal and pull away There’s goes another brother blown away And another one staking claim The way the game is played Down the alley there was a street fight Passed the van, there up on the right Take the cash, there’s no other plan Make it fast, that’s why you’re the man Hand on the hip I thought I saw myself Hands in the air I thought I saw myself I saw it in you Down the alley there was a street fight Passed the van, there up on the right Take the cash, there’s no other plan Make it fast, that’s why you’re the man Hand on the hip I thought I saw myself Hands in the air I thought I saw myself I saw it in you

One Friend 05:14
“One Friend” A bottle turned down A face for a frown I’m too far from home I’m too far from home A black for an eye A death before a lie Out on the front line I turn toward the light If these were the last words in my mouth And the last verse I sing out If you’ve got one… one friend It’s worth breathing If you’ve got one… one friend You’ve got it all With the bottom in sight No further than a pint The fighter’s alive A diamond will rise From the coal in my eyes Sights set on the prize Cold coal come alive If these were the last words in my mouth And the last verse I sing out If you’ve got one… one friend It’s worth breathing If you’ve got one… one friend You’ve got it all One shot, I hold it up I come clean One shot, I hold it out I come clean If these were the last words in my mouth And the last verse I sing out If you’ve got one… one friend It’s worth breathing If you’ve got one… one friend You’ve got it all

“One Horse Town” You run away to no avail You take a ride to heaven’s hell And still it wears you like a veil This one horse town It’s written in the sand You fight the urge to end your plans And oh it has its hold on you As you run away from this one horse town Tonight we’ll find What you can and what you can’t let go We are the sons and daughters grace Clean the womb and end the chase It still remains a love of yours This one horse town Tonight we’ll find What you can and what you can’t let go What you can and can’t let go Let it go

Let's die together Together we'll go Let's die together Together we are gone So don't leave me now Don't leave me now We can roll a snowball out of hell And I can be with you 'til the end The earth... a coffin To crawl in Back home The sky is calling Calling to shine on And on Don't leave me now Don't leave me now We can roll a snowball out of hell And I can be with you 'til the end

“Heart B 4 the Head” You’re a beauty born complete I am bowing in defeat Kneeling crutchless, like Achilles now I crawl Come closer, make it real Curses quickly cut the heel Bodies burning, I am butter, you are blade When your heart is in your head And your head can’t find your heart As you lay across the bed And I stumble in the dark Coen plays Suzanne, saying things I never said I dance into my lover’s hands The heart B 4 the head You’re a saint made from mead Move it now and marry me Make my memories Make them clean Mighty muse We will honeymoon on the high Hang our sins out to dry Hide our honor in our eyes …like Hollywood When your heart is in your head And your head can’t find your heart As you lay across the bed And I stumble in the dark Coen’s Marianne, saying things I never said I dance into my lover’s hands The heart B 4 the head For a draft dodging king There are days worth numbering Dying doves will dive for the door The sea sent a swell Our ship will never sail Our ship will never sail When your heart is in your head And your head can’t find your heart As you lay across the bed And I stumble in the dark Coen plays Suzanne, saying things I never said Dance into my lover’s hands The heart B 4 the head

about

The Smoking Flowers Nashville, Tennessee

There are not enough words to describe the intrinsic chemistry Kim and Scott Collins possess. They have discovered what some duos spend their entire careers trying to find: a fascinating marriage between artistic talent and subtle sensuality that pierces the attention of anyone in the same room as them... the second their wild feet touch the stage they exude just how tenured they truly are. ... more
