...in 1684, Dr. Martin Lister, writing in the journal Philosophical Transactions, suggested that trade winds were caused by the constant breath of seaweed.

Brand New Man
by Brooks & Dunn

I saw the light
I've been baptised
By the fire in your touch
And the flame in your eyes
I'm born to love again
I'm a brand new man

Well the whole town's talking
'Bout the line I'm walking
That leads right to your door
Oh how I used to roam
I was a rolling stone

I used to have a wild side
They say a country-mile-wide
I'd burn those beer joints down
That's all changed now
You turned my life around

I saw the light
I've been baptised
By the fire in your touch
And the flame in your eyes
I'm born to love again
I'm a brand new man

I used to love 'em and leave 'em
I'd brag about my freedom
How no one could tie me down
Then I met you
Now my heart beats true

Baby you and me together
Feels more like forever
Than anything I've ever known
We're right on track
I ain't looking back

I saw the light
I've been baptised
By the fire in your touch
And the flame in your eyes
I'm born to love again
I'm a brand new man

I saw the light
I've been baptised
By the fire in your touch
And the flame in your eyes
I'm born to love again
I'm a brand new man

I saw the light
I've been baptised
By the fire in your touch
And the flame in your eyes
I'm born to love again
I'm a brand new man

I'm born to love again
I'm a brand new man

Willow
by Sarah Slean

Willow tree by the sea
Where the gods lie
How I love to look at you
With all my aching eye

Winter comes, winter kills
Let it go by
There'll be better days
Willow
Don't cry

Willow star shine afar in a dark sky
You're the one I'm wishing on
With all my weary might
Tell the trees if you please
That it is alright
There'll be better days
Willow
Don't cry

River bend
River sigh
River so wide
Wash away the worry
From my lonely heart tonight

Lover comes
Lover goes
Let him go by
There'll be better days
Willow
Don't cry
