"Wrecking Ball (Neil Young cover)" as written by Sam Farrar, Jaymes Young, Bryan Michael Cox and Ray Reich....
My life's an open book, you read it on the radio
We've got no where to hide, we got no where to go
But' if you still decide you want to take a ride

Meet me at the Wrecking ball
Wrecking Ball, I'll wear something pretty and white
And we'll go dancing tonight
Meet me at the Wrecking Ball
Wrecking Ball, I'll wear something pretty and white
And we'll go dacing tonight

I see smokey eyes right across the bar
I've seen that look before shining from star to star
Though I can't take that change
If you've got time for one dance

The restless line of cars goes stretching down the road
But I won't telephone �ause you might say hello
What is it makes me feel this way
What is it makes me want to say

    General CommentThe most forlornly beautiful song that has ever been sung. Emmylou's voice graces the lyrics with an optimism that is tempered by experience and the reality of human emotion. Recognition of the futility of her actions while still hoping for the best.
