Track Name: Meredith
Meredith you took a fall
You took a spill
And I am sorry
Meredith you hit your head
It bled a lot
On the sidewalk

When will you when will you learn, dear
You're not a bird in the sky
Oh when will you when will you learn, dear
You can't fly

Meredith we are alike in my many ways
We stay up too late
Meredith you're not alone
It feels that way
Though you don't know me

Are you, are you alright dear
You can say no
Are you, are you okay dear
Can you wiggle toes?

Can you spell your name
It's hard to pronounce with blood in your mouth
Track Name: Stormy Weather (Jazz Standard)
Don't know why
There's no sun up in the sky
Stormy weather
Since my man and I
We ain't together
Keeps raining all the time

Life is bare
Gloom and misery everywhere
Stormy weather
Just can't get my poor self together
I'm so weary all the time

When he went away
The blues walked in and met me
If he stays away
Old rocking chair will get me
All I do is pray the Lord above will let me
Walk in the sun once more

Can't go on
Everything I had is gone
Stormy weather
Since my man and I we ain't together
Keeps raining
All the time
