Track Name: Sometime Back in the '70's
Sometime back in the seventies I was a one trick pony forced into early retirement Don't know where I was headed anyway I called it quits before the sky fell Taking one by one I found comfort in the clouds It was better than the alternative To what I'm living for If you could see me now, would you say I've carried it well If you could see me now, sometimes I fear I've let you down But I can't tell, I don't care to think about it again I'm plagued by affinity for the affections of a green eyed social butterfly who never seems to reciprocate Falling asleep at the steering wheel, there's gotta be a better way to get where I'm going to without attracting much attention To what I'm living for If you could see me now, would you say I've carried it well If you could see me now, sometimes I fear I've let you down But I can't tell, I don't care Waiting 'til the drugs take over Waiting 'til the drugs take over Waiting 'til the drugs take over and rescue me If you could see me now, would you say I've carried it well If you could see me now But I can't tell, I don't care to think about it again
Track Name: Basement Song
Waiting for the weekend the hours take their toll Fall into the deep end your look never looked so cold I'm gonna run away I'm gonna run away from you this time Devil’s in the details I'm just doin' what I'm told Spin your life into a tall tale just can't wait to grow old I'm gonna run away I'm gonna run away from you this time I thought I knew you best Don't know what you'll say next Think I'll die from your silence if your words don't kill me first With convoluted reasons check your logic at the door Fitting for the basement buried deep beneath the boxes I don't open no more I'm gonna run away I'm gonna run away from you this time I thought I knew you best Don't know what you'll say next Think I'll die from your silence if your words don't kill me first
Track Name: Brand New Start
I want to buy an old house with big windows and wine in the cellar Miles of green grass my only view Gonna drink in the evening let my mind brush over Those days when I still had you Too far to feel The distance is much too great to tell what is real As the night creeps toward the day I swear I heard you walking in I see the image of the future in my reflection I feel the aching of the past in my heart My face is just as easy to remember as forget Ready for a brand new start I’ll take what I know and fake what I don’t Do my best to be easily ignored Your sheets are still swingin’ from the clothesline through the window I couldn’t take ‘em down I didn’t know what for Too far to feel The distance is much too great to tell what is real As the night creeps toward the day I swear I heard you walking in I see the image of the future in my reflection I feel the aching of the past in my heart My face is just as easy to remember as forget Ready for a brand new start
Track Name: How Could You Let Me Down
I fight for air the cigarette burns my lungs I feel your stare as if you can read my mind I won't wait around anymore You won't hurt me now anymore So unfair when the whiskey hits your lips Worse for wear I guess we weren’t made for this Tried and tortured my only move a shrug After years of never believing you’d come I won't wait around anymore You won't hurt me now anymore How could you let me down as the glasses crashed into the ground and helplessly turn away as the lights go out Fight for air as my heart beats out my chest I feel your stare you always did know best Which is worse is it the silence or your tongue I won’t be first to speak I won’t give in this time I won't wait around anymore You won't hurt me now anymore How could you let me down as the glasses crashed into the ground and helplessly turn away as the lights go out
Track Name: Born with a Broken Wing
Sidewalks filled with men and women dressed up fit to kill Umbrellas hiding smiling faces pockets filled with bills I am often envious for always sitting still To know that I’ll be leaving long before I’ve had my fill Sorry I’m the asshole for telling you the truth If you never wanna speak to me I guess that’s what we’ll do There’s no use in flying without some place to go just to see it When you’re born with a broken wing Spiders crawling up the wall my patience wearing thin To justify my loneliness as means toward an end I thought that I could give you up on a moment’s whim But lord I’m losing sleep at night Where do I begin Sorry I’m the asshole for telling you the truth If you never wanna speak to me I guess that’s what we’ll do There’s no use in loving without someone who knows that you mean it When you’re born with a broken wing Sorry I’m the asshole for telling you the truth If you never wanna speak to me I guess that’s what we’ll do There’s no use in flying without some place to go There’s no use in loving without someone who knows There’s no use in living without some way to show that we made it When we’re born with a broken wing Born with a broken wing
Track Name: Curtain Call
Laying in the back seat listening to the man sing his love song from a long time ago Had her once but never again Now he spends his time crying on the radio I'm gonna take my curtain call I'm headed west to nowhere at all Tumble down the river 'til I'm out of land Count the coins in my pocket and head to the picture show The hero climbs a mountain and he conquers the earth by he's spurned by love and reduced to a cameo I'm gonna take my curtain call I'm headed west to nowhere at all Swinging on the train trying to miss my stop My eyes glaze over and the letter falls from my hand A woman picks it up and she hands it back I say you can keep it cause I'm getting out while I can I'm gonna take my curtain call I'm headed west to nowhere at all
Track Name: Figured Out
I wanna be tall enough to see over the walls that are closing me in Press my head against and listen closely to the stories that they tell but I never reach the end Home isn't what it used to be When I've got it figured out finally easing all my doubts tell me you will still be next to me The road is paved by recklessness and gamblers who never feared the worst was as bad as it could be Calculated steps don't fill the footprints stretching out as far as I dare to dream Love isn't what I hoped it would be When I've got it figured out finally easing all my doubts tell me you will still be next to me When I've got it figured out no where left to go but down and pain is just a fading memory When I've got it figured out When I've got it figured out When I've got it figured out
Track Name: Last Day Blues
Stare at the frame the photo's only making it worse A steady reminder of motion when I'm stuck in reverse My hands are shaking and I can't even sleep anymore The paper floats like a feather 'til it reaches the floor I can feel her with me walking through the city at night Told her I would visit sometime in June or July Never imagined the waiting would be this hard The company line can only get you so far 'Til the lights will fade on you and your Last day blues, the hurt rolls off your shoulder Last day blues, comes and goes Something about the way she says her love will never die Your last day blues leaves you feeling all right Try to be strong but I know your smile only belies The truth that in a matter of moments we'll be saying goodbye Waving from the window, the look on your face is enough If I never open my eyes morning won't come But the lights still fade on you and your Last day blues, the hurt rolls off your shoulder Last day blues, comes and goes Something about the way she says her love will never die Your last day blues leaves you feeling all right
Track Name: Nashville
I never wandered about without the fear of getting lost I never loved a girl without the worry of being tossed Nothing in the air I breathe suggests that I’ll run out Let my reflection in the river water remove all my doubt Nashville you’re slipping right through my fingers But I know there’s a life for us here Don’t you feel like something’s missing One day it will all seem so clear The sun’s coming up not a moment too soon we’re on our way out the door There’s nothing quite like the day after a night spent on the floor I’m living a lie, and there’s no way to slow back down We’ll say our goodbyes and get the hell right out of town Nashville you’re slipping right through my fingers But I know there’s a life for us here Don’t you feel like something’s missing One day it will all seem so clear Can’t deny a love that’s going under Don't wanna try to live with any other Black sky above will never cover How can I hold on to something without being held back Some nights I will dream about the places we will go Maybe our wishes all come true or maybe we just get old
Track Name: Staring at the Sky
Highway to the city to the place where the road ends and I begin Born to live without the fear of dying Take the wheel if you let me Gotta tell me which way to go Don’t know if I’ll get there, but I’ll sure try I can see anything, anything at all Don’t know if I’m ready When I reach I wanna find something there Ain’t nothing left but scraps and bones Walk a wire slow and steady Careful don’t go falling in Too early yet you’ll sink just like a stone I can see anything, anything at all I don’t fear anything, anything at all Hold me darling don’t let me go Hold me darling don’t let me go I can see anything anything at all I don’t fear anything anything at all When I’m with you Cold frozen to the black top staring at the sky wondering if it ever drops
Track Name: Annabelle
Our time on earth is little more than moments strung from dusk 'til dawn to hide from us how fleeting youth can be I’ve got photos spread across the floor to help serve as some kind of door I enter when my faith has all run dry Annabelle oh Annabelle There was a time I know when I knew you well If I could find a love inside of you and a truth inside of me that’s all I need There’s one thing that I know for sure eyes as beautiful as yours once filled with hope and joy shouldn’t be so sad We’ve been down this road before a laugh a smile and nothing more To prove that you’re the best I’ve ever had Annabelle oh Annabelle There was a time I know when I knew you well If I could find a love inside of you and a truth inside of me that’s all I need True loves gives and true love takes a little more from me each day True love lives and true love waits My true love came truly late
Track Name: One Foot Out the Door
Pining for days that didn't seem to be so far away from you and me Chasing our tails like all the talking makes it easy I remember where we started but I don't know how Pretend you're broken hearted now or never Seems that the distance from Chicago back to home is always growing You could've called me crazy when I asked if you agreed I don't ever wanna give up but I'm breaking down Keep pushing when I'm fed up now or never Go on go on and go Go on go on and you've got one foot out the door Learning the hard way how the company we keep is never permanent Like a revolving door of smiles shared and tears shed Spinning 'round and 'round the words lose all their meaning Spinning 'round and 'round I don't know what to feel Go on go on and go Go on go on and you've got one foot out the door My dear we've nothing left to fear with every passing year we learn a little more
Track Name: Painted on the Bedroom Wall
Footsteps echo up and down the halls I'm left with a hope and a prayer Passing the time reminiscing of life and the smell of your hair Sun in the afternoon planting lilies in the yard Balance the stepping stones that I used to know by heart I can't go back I can't go back alone Sit up in the chair at a quarter to three I feel like a ghost in the room Each breath means a little more than the last what else can I do Clouds in the distance doesn't mean the sky will fall Your name next to mine painted on the bedroom wall I can't go back I can't go back alone
