Track Name: Thinkin' Love
Thinkin’ Love
Joseph E. Reed
May 24, 2008

VERSE 1
I took my girl to a drive-in movie
We were sittin’ in the dark
I was quiet, not sayin’ much of nothin’
There beside her in the car

She looks right into my eyes and asks me
“Joe, what’s on your mind?”
And I respond with a stutter and a smile
With the best words I can find.

CHORUS 1
I’m just thinkin’ love
I’m just thinkin’ sweet
I’m just thinkin’ maybe
This is how it should be

I’m just thinkin’ us
Meanin’ you and I
I can’t get enough of
What we got tonight
I’m just thinkin’ you
I’m just thinkin’ me
I’m just thinkin’ love

VERSE 2
At her momma’s house, plannin’ for the wedding
She talks until she’s out of breath
About the cake and the color of the dresses
Decorations and the rest

And then she notices I haven’t really said much
I’m just sittin’ with a smile
She says, “Joe, what ya thinkin’ about?”
And this is my reply,

CHORUS 2
I’m just thinkin’ love
I’m just thinkin’ sweet
I’m just thinkin’ ‘bout
How it’s gonna be

Walkin’ down the aisle,
Baby, you and I
I can’t get enough of it
What a lovely sight
I’m just thinkin’ you
I’m just thinkin’ me
I’m just thinkin’ love

BRIDGE
Lookin’ back on those days in the sunshine
All that time ago
She ain’t gotta ask me now what I’m thinkin’
‘Cause she already knows

CHORUS 3
I’m just thinkin’ love
I’m just thinkin’ sweet
I’m just thinkin’, this is how
We knew that it would be

I’m just thinkin’ love
I’m just thinkin’ sweet
I’m just thinkin’ this is how
We knew that it would be

I’m just thinkin’ us
Meanin’ you and I
I can’t get enough of
Livin’ this life
I’m just thinkin’ you
I’m just thinkin’ me
I’m just thinkin’ love

I’m just thinkin’ us
Meanin’ you and I
I can’t get enough of
Livin’ this life
I’m just thinkin’ you
I’m just thinkin’ me
I’m just thinkin’ love
I’m just thinkin’ love
I’m just thinkin’ love
Track Name: So Afraid of Losing
I’m So Afraid of Losing
Joseph E. Reed
April 7, 2015

I've already been defeated
I'm just here collecting (to collect) my shame
I don't even feel mistreated
I accept I'm the best one to blame

I've heard of making haste slowly
But this is more like giving in
Inheritance for the weak and the lowly
The wages for all of my sins

I'm so afraid of losing
That I don't even start to begin

Yeah, I've had the time to correct this
And I've had the energy too
But I spent all my time finding brandy
And my energy writing these blues

No I'm not in line for a hand out
I played my hand out long ago
I guess I'm just looking for mercy
And direction on which way to go

I'm so afraid of losing
That I don't even start to begin

INSTRUMENTAL

I'm under the water
And can't save myself
Yeah, I am barely breathing
Trying to ask for some help

But if I’m not gonna make it
Maybe this is my last cry
At least I can say that
I did it before I died

I'm so afraid of losing
That I don't even start to begin
Track Name: Daddy's Picture
Daddy’s Picture
Joseph E. Reed

Verse 1
Dear Daddy,
I know that you are far away
Sometimes I even wonder
If everything’s gonna be okay

I know that they sent you
I know that you’re a very brave man
But, dear Daddy, please come home
Just as soon as you can

Chorus
I’ve got your picture here
I keep it with me all the time
I hold voice inside my heart
Mama and I are praying
That everything will be just fine
And Daddy, I’m gonna love you
Wherever you are

Verse 2
Now last night
I heard reports on CNN
Talking about the war out there
And my mind is filled with questions

Like, “Are things okay with you?”
And, “When’s this war gonna end?”
Daddy, I just pray it’s soon
So that you can come home again

Chorus

Bridge
Why did you have to go?
Sometimes I just don’t know
But I have your promise that you will return
And Daddy, I won’t ever let you go

Chorus X2
Track Name: This Shred
This Shred
Joseph E. Reed
March 19, 2008

Verse 1
I know how you feel now
But how I feel is not allowed
But okay. I'll be okay
I'll breathe in. I'll breathe out

Verse 2
I've let go, cause you said so
You said, "Sorry, no chance, no more."
It's all done. It's all over
There's no way. There's no hope

Chorus
But even though you say all hope is dead
In my hands I still cling to this shred

Verse 3
I'm cool. I'm all good
You've moved on, guess I should
You have your life, but, what's left of mine?
This faded thread; this sprig of twine

Chorus
And even though I'm sure all hope is dead
My hands still cling on to this shred

Bridge
You can go on; be long gone
You can let time take you far from me
And I can get past all we ever might have had
And finally come to see

Chorus
That surely there's no hope, it all is dead
But why am I still clinging to this shred?
Yeah, I can see that every hope is dead
But still I keep on clinging to this shred.
