1. Home is on the water by Mehuman copyright 2019 

My home is on the water and not on dry land 
My home is on the water and not on dry land 
my God is good he got the world in His hand 

My home is on the water and not up in the air 
My home is on the water and not up in the air 
my God is good, my God is everywhere 

You lighten my load 
it was you who lightened my load 
heaven knows it was you and you lighten my load 
you lighten my load 

you set my spirit free 
you drive away grief 
heaven knows it was you and you lighten my load 
you lighten my load 

My home is on the water and not on dry land 
My home is on the water and not on dry land 
my God is good he got the world in His hand 

Somebody tell me, answer if you can 
somebody tell me what is the soul of a man 
what is the soul of a man, what is the soul of a man 

 

2. Ticket  by Mehuman copyright  2015 

I lost my left shoe on a railroad track 

spent my whole life trying to get it back 

oh I'm wondering when the trains gonna come? 

I got a ticket with my name on it, and Im not gonna walk, im gonna run 

i left my heart in a rusted can 

up on a shelf with my old man 

oh he hides it away, to go lookin for some fun 

I got a ticket with my name on it, and Im not gonna walk, im gonna run 

daddy i hear you in my dreams say" child, nothing is as it seems" 

I raised you to be honored and loved by someone 

nothings gonna change here, the damage is done 

you better run, child you better run 

when Im lonely, i head to the Son 

he's the only place I can run 

when I'm crushed let down and broken 

and heart ache has won 

I got a ticket with my name on it, and Im not gonna walk, im gonna run 

 

3.Heavyweight by Mehuman copyright  2018 

I’m a heavyweight I’m a contender 

I’m a champion superhero defender 

I don’ t want to fight tonight 

I wanna make love 

I’m an alchemist I’m a miracle maker 

I’m a physicist I’m a vision incenter (the center of a triangle) 

I don’t want to fight all my life 

I wanna make love 

Who's gonna catch you? 

when you come down? 

What’s gonna pick you? 

up off the ground? 

I’m a honcho Im a smooth operator 

Im a teddy bear I'm a mood elevator 

I don’t wan  na to fight 

I don’t want to fight all my life 

I wanna make love 

Who's gonna catch you? 

when you come down? 

What’s gonna pick you? 

up off the ground? 

What do you want? 

What do you need? 

What do you want from me? 

All I got is love baby 

Is love what you need? 

Maybe we should know 

When to let go 

when to give in 

Love not a game 

to drive our hearts insane 

We won’t loose 

But we won’t win 

(Smoking guitar solo by Kevin Billingslea) 

What do you want? 

What do you need? 

What do you want from me? 

All I got is love baby 

Is love what you need? 

I’m a heavyweight I’m a contender 

I’m a champion superhero defender 

I don’ t want to fight all my life 

I wanna make love 

 

4. winding road by Mehuman  copyright 2018 

You wanted to go on your own 

They held under water to sink like a stone 

Butcher floated, you floated 

You claim that love is like a rock 

if we pile it high, we'll make the water stop 

this aching this pain that we're feeling 

Take the winding road 

anywhere you wanna to go 

If its meant to be…..you will find…..you’ll find me 

You believed that you once were a tree, 

when you gave your shade and your shelter to me. 

They cut you down. 

Why'd anybody want to cut you down? 

They say nothing else matters 

When a heart is torn and dreams are all shattered 

but I say, “there's nothing more than love.” 

Take the winding road 

Anywhere you wanna to go 

if its meant to be 

If its meant to be…..you will find…..find me. 

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh 

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh 

You believed you once were a tree, 

when you gave your shade and your shelter to me. 

They cut you down. 

Why'd anybody want to cut you down? 

Take the winding road 

Anywhere you gotta go 

If its meant to be 

you will find….. 

Take the winding road 

anywhere you gotta go 

if its meant to be 

.you will find…..you’ll find me 

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh 

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh 

 

5.Black and Blue by Mehuman Track 5 of Beautiful Ashes 

Drownin’ in the belly of a three day hell 
My man’s in the grave and I’m  in jail 
There’s some things no child should know 
Like daddy in the dirt and momma on the row 
Good God Almighty! 
Daddy in the dirt and momma on the row 

What in the world would a good God 
What in the world would a good God do? 
my man’s in black and I’m blue 

I took a gun and put it to his head 
if you gonna leave, rather see you dead 
pulled the trigger and I heard it ring 
sirens coming as angels sing 
Good God Almighty! 
Sirens coming as angels sing 

What in the world would a good God, 
What in the world would a good God, 
What in the world would a good God, good God watcha gonna do? 
My man’s in black and I’m blue 

Oh love, love love ……love aint no damn good 
oh this love love  ain’t no damn good 
Oh love, love love ……love aint no damn good 
no good, no good, no good! 

You broke my heart, like you broke a bone 
living on a lie will break a home 
I’m no judge, no jury no, no, no 
There’s a wicked side to every soul 
Heaven Help me! 
There’s a wicked side to my soul 

What in the world would a good God, 
What in the world would a good God, 
What in the world would a good God, good God watcha gonna do? 
My man’s in black and I’m blue 

Govnah, govnah, here my plea 
Lord have mercy on me. 

 

6. Highwire by Mehuman Ernst copyright 1998 

A quiet man lives on the water 
the sunset brings him down to his knees 
all his hopes are rises with the moon 
all his dreams are sinking into the sea. 

If she didn’t want him she could want you 
if she didn’t need him she could need you 
if she didn’t love him she could love you 

A hungry girl lives high up on a wire 
she pirouettes in the air hanging from her teeth 
all her hopes are rising with the crowd 
all her dreams are tumbling down to the ground 

If he didn’t want him he could want you 
if he didn’t need him he could need you 
if he didn’t love him he could love you 

We could live high up on a hill 
with we’ll all our misgivings 
I will plant a garden and you can come inside 
and kisses will ( ) in the pale moonlight. 

And If you want to want, we can want 
and If you need to need, we can need 
If you love to love we can love 

we can love 

 

7. And so 

And so life didn’t give me anything I thought it would 
And so love didn’t give me everything thing I hoped it could 
now I  know, everything changes 

Don’t crack a smile, talk out of turn 
this is the last deal for the next thousand miles 
Luck of the draw, toss of a coin, cast of a die 
How will we survive? 

Run to the sea run straight to me 
if you’re feeling lonely tonight 
Hurry don’t be late for the first and final date 
I can’t wait for the rest of my life 

Here’s an invitation babe 
Come and dance with me tonight 
What’s your hesitation babe 
Cross that great divide 
I got no reservation babe 
I got nothing to hide 
Here’s a little revelation, baby 
Im gonna love you until the day I die 

And so life didn’t give me anything I thought it would 
And so love didn’t give me anything thing I hoped it could 
now I  know,  everything, everything changes 

so, just let your heart (3X)… gooooooo! 
Just let your heart go 

 

8. Tremble by Mehuman Ernst copyright 1998 

I don’t know why 

it’s just so hard 

to keep my feet on the ground 

You're in my heart 

You're on my mind 

Your love makes me happy 

I’m lost up in a cloud 

I would not trade 

one single day 

not one single moment 

I have spent with you 

What would I do? 

Where would I go? 

Who would I tell? 

if I should ever loose your love 

I would just linger 

like perfumed air 

waiting for you 

I would not trade one single day 

not one single moment 

I have spent with you 

la da da di da, la da da di da 

I don’t know why 

its's just so hard 

to keep my feet on the ground 

You’re in my heart 

you’re on my mind, 

Your love makes me happy, so happy 

I’m lost, I’m lost up in the clouds 

So never let your feet touch the ground 

And never let your heart come down 

I would not trade one single day 

not one single moment..... 

not one single moment..... 

I have spent with you. 

la da da di da, la da da di da 

la da da di da, la da da di da 

Oh, your love makes me tremble 

ooooo 

Oh, your love makes me tremble 

ooooo 

Oh, your love makes me tremble 

ooooo 

Oh, you love makes me tremble 

 

9. China Will Jump (Something’s Missing) 

I’m wondering why, I’m wondering how 
you and I, will get past these clouds 
Don’t know what to say 
to make them go away 

I’m praying for rain to wash us away 
to a lovely place where we will be safe 
is that enough for you? What else can I do? 

Now China will jump and Paris will burn 
and London will sell it in the papers 
everytime I hear your name 
I know there something I’m missing 
oh there something, something I’m missing 

I wander around, I stumbled, fell down 
looking for your love in the “lost and found” 
but you gave all away, so you say 

now I’m holding my breath, now I’m holding my head 
trying to recall the last thing you said 
Why’d you have to leave that way? 

Now China will jump and Paris will burn 
and London will sell it in the papers 
everytime I hear your name 
I know there something I’m missing 
oh there something, something I’m missing 

I tore down the fences, I dropped my resistance 
just to let you through but that’s not enough for you 
so I opened up my mind, I opened up my heart 
trying to love you, I’m to love you 

I'm wondering why, wondering how 
you and I, will get past these clouds 
don’t wanna let you go, oh don’t go (2x) 

 

10. This side of Heaven by Mehuman Ernst copyright 2019 

Here we are 
fallen stars 
Here we come 
one my one 

On this side of heaven, angel don’t fly 
They watch from the backstreets 
waiting for one of us to die 
and then they step in 
wanting to see 
step in 
longing to be one 
one of the living 

On this side of Heaven 
heartache all fades 
cleansed by the memories 
of better days 
and then they step in 
wanting to see 
step in 
longing to be one 
one of the living 

In the sweet by and by 
we will meet on a beautiful shore 

On this side of Heaven 
tears flow like wine 
from my lover’s eyes 
Longing to be drunk dry and then they step in 
wanting to see 
step in 
longing to be one 
one of the living 

Here we are 
fallen stars 
Here we come 
one my one 

 

11. Beauty in the Ashes by Mehuman copyright 2018 

This is the story of  a prodigal girl 
Who fell on her face for the things of the world 
whoa whoa whoa whoa 

This is a testimony of pain and shame 
Living the life, and playing the games 
whoa whoa whoa whoa………. God is good 

There was beauty in the ashes when my life burned down 
He picked/lifted me up set my feet on the ground 
He gave me a new song of amazing grace 
Now I can bear this heartache, every time I  break 
whoa whoa whoa whoa my God is good 

BRIDGE: 

So come you  tired, and  come you weary,  come to the table of mercy 
come you  tired, come you weary,  come to the table of mercy 

Child this is the moment to turn your,  turn your life around 
lay down your burdens and the things weighing you down 
Believe in his mercy trust in his grace 
Jesus will save you with a just a seed of faith 

There will be beauty in the ashes when your life burns down 
He will pick you up set your feet on the ground 
He’ll give you a  new song of amazing grace 
Now  you can bear this heartache if you look to his face 
whoa whoa whoa whoa, whoa whoa whoa whoa 

 my God is good 

 

12 . Only Angels by Mehuman Ernst  copyright 2019 

They say only angels can have wings 

They say that the devil’s at the root of everything 

They say that there’s no more freedom left to find 

But I say that your love came down, your love came down just in time 

And if I ever let you down, 

It’s only because I was so afraid of what I might find 

No, I’ll never leave you, never leave you broken 

Because the word that binds us, is the word of love 

Spoken 

(*The say that dreaming is for fools 

They say that I need to learn the “Golden Rule” 

They say that there no more freedom left of find 

But I say that you love came down, you love came down just in time) 

They say that it’s time for me to go 

They say there’s a trillion million things I’ll never really know 

They say that there’s no more freedom, no freedom left to find 

But I say that your love came down, your love came down just in time 

And if I ever let you down, 

It’s only because I was so afraid of what I might find 

No, I’ll never leave you, never leave you broken 

Because the word that binds us, is the word of love 

Spoken 

They say only angels can have wings 

They say that the devil’s at the root of everything 

They say that there’s no more freedom left to find 

But I say that your love came down, your love came down just in time
