Project 5.1 Album: “Love You Strong”
Love. Loyalty. Friendship.
Released 2/5/16
Remixed, remastered, re-released 1/20/17

"Love You Strong" is a collection of songs that put the concept of love under the microscope. Love isn’t all hearts and flowers and it’s not just about broken hearts. Love is being there for someone in both sickness and in health. It’s the unspoken vows given in lifelong friendships. It’s the marriage of trust, loyalty, and convictions that stand the test of time. However, this isn’t an album of “love songs.” It's not a happy record. It's not a sad record. It's an honest record. If there’s one line that could sum up “Love You Strong,” it would be “Reaching for the light underneath a bed of snow” from “Earth-Kind Rose.” No matter which direction the lyrics go on each song, there are no victims on this record. Musically, it’s also very straight forward. I was really thinking about this album as a whole and how the songs fit together, and the music just didn’t lend itself to leaving the earthy parameters of storytelling.

Track Name: Vulnerable
"Vulnerable"
By Terri Hendrix

I wish the holidays brought out the best in me
These days are hard to spend with my family
They remind me of what will never be
And I’m so vulnerable

Christmas lights blink and flash
We hang ornaments from our past
We share a moment that will never last
We’re vulnerable

I wanna drink
I wanna lose myself
Into the body of someone else
Someone to brave to have ever felt
So vulnerable

I’m in a chair
I’m leaning back
With my eyes closed
Wish I could trust the one I love
When my heart’s exposed

“Silent Night” oh I can’t sleep
“Oh Holy Night” I think of God
I think of those who have nothing
I should be thankful for what I’ve got

I wish the holidays brought out the best in me
These days are hard to spend with my family
They remind me of what will never be
I’m so vulnerable
Track Name: The Texas Star
The Texas Star
By Terri Hendrix/Lloyd Maines

Anne’s with Barbara Liz and Molly
In the sunshine watching the rivers
Run through Texas like fences and ranches
Oak trees and cattle highways and truth

That old Texas Star she’s ready to spin
She’ll light up the midway at the State Fair again

Education was King
With four queens on our side
Anne took on Texas
Barbara took on civil rights
Molly and Liz wrote the news with barbed wire
Above the capitol dome
I see their faces tonight

That old Texas Star she’s ready to spin
She’ll light up the midway at the State Fair again

I can see them at that big round table
Between the thunder and lightening
They all come alive
Women united in justice and freedom
Blazing across the lone star skies

The goddess of liberty
Stands tall in the sun
The Lone Star Flag is in the middle
Of the bible and the gun
It rains too much
Or it don’t rain at all
Some want to cross our borders
Some want to build a wall

That old Texas Star she’s ready to spin
She’ll light up the midway at the State Fair again
That old Texas Star she’s ready to spin
For corny dogs and Big Tex at the State Fair again

I can see them at that big round table
Between the thunder and lightening
They all come alive
Women united in justice and freedom
Blazing across the lone star skies
Anne Richards, Barbara Jordan, Liz Carpenter, and Molly Ivins
Are with Lady Bird Johnson looking at all the wildflowers
