Blood N Ice I love this album with every bit of my heart. There's do many great songs on here. Kimberly to me , is at her best when does the acoustic guitar. She is true genius in my book. I just can't say I have a favorite , especially since I love them all. 💜 Favorite track: Flowers Still Grow.

Benjamin Dunbar I love this album because it focuses on Kimberly's beautifully expressive voice with only her guitar or ambient noise to complement it. I also strongly identify with the lyrics of many of the songs and it contains two of the three songs that made me a fan of her and One-Eyed Doll ("Float Away" & "New Orleans"). The only thing that I perhaps don't love is the fact that it is not long enough, but the DVD helps with that problem. Favorite track: Float Away.

I went to place Where we used to go Where the river still laughs And the flowers still grow I thought of your smile And your pretty blue eyes And I thanked God above For you in my life The old cemetery Where we used to stroll Where the headstones still stand And the flowers still grow I remembered the tears In your pretty blues eyes And I thanked God above For you in my life I stopped at the grave Where you lay below And I pulled out the weeds Where the flowers still grow I whispered a prayer As I fell down and cried And I thanked God above for you in my life Where the flowers still grow That's you in my life

Speckles on the ceiling I'm sure glad it doesn't leak Got myself a job So I can pay the rent next week Wonder if they'd notice if I disappeared today Think I'll hold my breath awhile and try to float away Cracks run down the mirror How I wish I were pretty Hope my friends go blind So they don't have to look at me Wonder if they'd notice if I disappeared today Think I'll hold my breath awhile and try to float away

Everything hurts When I think about you There's cement in my veins And I'm turning blue Everything is gray Since you left this earth There's cement in my womb And I'm about to give birth Everything’s changed Everything’s new But I feel so old Without you Everything hurts When I think about you There's cement in my tears And I'm crying Everything is ugly Everything is true And everything hurts without you

Mama don't you cry You'll see him once again Mama don't you cry He's waiting around the bend I can see an angel always by your side And he'll take you up to heaven when you die So momma don't you cry Mama don't you cry Mama don't you cry

I am the wife of an eagle in the air Dewdrops are my lips, and flowers are my hair I was created to be fairest of all fair I was created for an eagle in the air I am the wife of an eagle in the sky I cannot love him, though everyday I try And when the darkness falls, I ask the forest why I was created for an eagle in the sky Tossing and turning I dream my freedom is nigh If living means slavery I'm not afraid to die I am the wife of an eagle in the air A mortal wanderer has shown me how to care I love him secretly - the only way I dare I was created for an eagle in the air Tossing and turning I dream my freedom is nigh If living means slavery I'm not afraid to die I am the wife of an eagle in the sky I can no longer wait to live nor wait for him to die He'll live forever and forever I will cry I was created for an eagle in the sky Tossing and turning I dream my freedom is nigh If living means slavery I'm not afraid to die

My mother used to say "I love you so well If I had a peanut I'd give you the shell" She told me tapioca Was made of monkey brains When I tried to make it from scratch She never complained My mother is a weird monkey I guess I get it from her She dances in the grocery store And has as crush on MacGyver When I look into her big brown hair It becomes so clear to see We're not so different after all My mother's turned out just like me People ask me why I turned out this way "Did a monkey farmer raise you?” "Naw!" This is what I say: My mother is a weird monkey I guess I get it from her She dances in the grocery store And has as crush on MacGyver When I look into her big brown hair It becomes so clear to see We're not so different after all My mother's turned out just like me

Sometimes I cry when I hear My little angels sing But I never show my tears Think of all the trouble that would bring My yellow angels Singing in my ears Yellow sunshine Burns away my tears Babies soon I'll have to leave you But I never will forget My yellow angels I used to wonder why I ever came around And then the answer filled the sky I heard a golden sound Like yellow angels Singing in my ears Yellow sunshine Burns away my tears Babies soon I'll have to leave you But I never will forget My yellow angels

I took a walk in a crowded town Where if you breathe too deeply You're likely to drown But the air's not as thick as the sin I found In New Orleans. Rainbow necks on drunken girls Who'd sell their souls for a string of pearls I hope there's no place in the world Like New Orleans New Orleans is a spooky place You can see the devil smiling in every face Voodoo babies put their pins in place In New Orleans I took a walk in a crowded town I saw a dark boy get beaten down I watched him turn to a reddish brown In New Orleans I held his hand and I sang my song I was lying when I told him there was nothing wrong I won't be back for sometime long Not in New Orleans New Orleans is a spooky place You can see the devil smiling in every face Voodoo babies put their pins in place In New Orleans

about

The live acoustic sessions on this collection are lightly mastered, but far from studio produced. Raw, unplugged and often a cappella, Kimberly's voice is accompanied by crickets, buzzing neon lights, water and the sounds of a sleeping city at 4am.

Venues showcased in this album include the after-hours security hallway of an old airfield, a few park benches, the fountain at St. Edward's University, The Oaks Trailer Park and a cement pipe in a closed construction site in Kimberly Freeman's own South Austin, Texas neighborhood.

This is a refreshing glimpse into the quieter, sadder side of the explosive singer, songwriter and guitarist behind One-Eyed Doll.
