Track Name: One More Day
Everywhere we've been all adds up to nothing cause we're still far away
Everything I touch tries to tell me something but I can't hear a thing

Oh but to be up here
Breathing the morning air
Trying to find something that isn't there

Everyone I meet says the grass is greener on their side of the street
Spending all my time trying to work things over it's so hard to compete

Oh but to be up here
Breathing the morning air
Trying to find something that isn't there

I know who you are
And I won't let you fade away
I have loved and guided you this far
Hold on one more day...
Hold on one more day...
Track Name: Hearts & Stars
Hearts and stars collide for you
I read it in the bathroom
I knew it all along to be true
Lovers dance in time in twos
I’ve seen it done so I know they do
The music swelled it was grand, never took your hand

Wide awake and up all hours
Exiled on main street with only dead flowers
I’ll never sleep-in the same way again
Don’t magically think twice
just remember it so, it was so nice

Only after dark he sang
I hear the song,i don’t say his name
I'm leaving space to wonder who I knew
To hell with times I cried for you
don’t forget you hung the moon
I'll recall it all the way I want to

Wide awake until all hours
The sounds of silence, the slowing down
I’d never reach out my hand the same again
For the room alone
With no one to make excuses for us
I could sway with you with my eyes closed, for a lifetime
Oh, Let’s magically think twice
I’ll remember it’s so, it was so nice
Track Name: Good Time Charlie
You’re a rat! You’re a snake in the grass!
You’re a mule! Back away you stubborn ass!
I mean what in the world were you thinkin’?
I guess I’ll pass on the glass of what you’re drinkin’

‘Cuz I’m a fool, not blind
I saw it with my own eyes!
Did you ever once think twice?

Hippy-dippy, phoney-baloney, good time Charlie!
Don’t look back, make excuses, don’t say sorry

If this all sounds familiar to you
It’s only ‘cuz everyone else has sung it too
And if this song lacks originality
Well it’s only because you don’t deserve the best of me

‘Cuz I’m a fool, not blind
I saw it with my own eyes!
Did you ever once think twice in your life?

Good time Charlie, I’ve got some bad news for you!
Track Name: Oh, Tenderheart
All of these crushes
Though I’ll never know their touches
When they speak and sing, oh! How I feel them resonate!

Wayfaring, weakened
Desperately we pray for the weekend
What’s it going to take to make us right as rain again?
I won’t hesitate

Place blame on the weekend
But it can happen any day, don’t pretend
Oh! Tenderheart don’t lie in wait! Don’t hesitate
Don’t do this on your own again

All of these grudges
Stubbornly remain in our clutches
At the same time both of us should let go
I won’t hesitate…please, don’t hesitate
Track Name: The Picture I Keep
I woke up today trying to figure out
Which part of my brain I keep calling my broken heart
Because my heart does its job
It’s my mind that don’t know the part

I remember when I last saw you
I left as you entered; we did not speak
You just smiled and hugged me
And went on to live your last week

I’m wasting your time
I know you don’t mind
If we talk for awhile
You know that it helps me get back on my feet

I woke up today and I put on a suit
That you would’ve loved and I carried your casket
Into the sunlight; I cried for your mother
I just couldn’t mask it

Some people say when your photo is taken
So is your soul but how can that be?
I don’t have your soul but I’ve got your smile
In the picture I keep

-----------------------

Do you mind if I turn off the radio?
Because the song that’s playing
The sound that it’s making
Yeah that trumpet is breaking my heart!

I knew him well and I think about him all the time
And I know that you don’t mind
If we sit here and just talk about him
A little while longer…
Track Name: On Every Word
You’re so tired
From walking through our dreams again
Weary from the miles
Whither shall you wander? In the minds of more admirers?
Be careful what you say in there

What’s the matter? Nothing’s over
Don’t you want to seize the day?
Yes, I’m listening, I’m always listening
When you speak I hang on every word

Prayed for rain
And that made it harder to complain
When the flooding came
Anything that ain’t nailed down
Just might float away
Be careful when you pray again
Track Name: Good For The Gander
Cast all fear by the wayside
Take notice when you arrive
You inherited the wind and took it for a ride
Steady looking down at my cell phone
Ain’t nothin’ but the minute changed
I know you like me better when I step outta range
And fall into line
Here goes another night…

We could…
Dance in the evening
Drink through the night
Laugh ‘til the morning
Then do it all again
But you know that I gotta find
A way not to lose my mind

Cast all fear by the wayside
Just knowing that you’re obliged
Got a look on your face like you ain’t ever tried
Foot on the pedal
Thousand yard stare
Down for whatever
All “Devil-may-care”
I get so nervous when you get on such a tear
And step outta line
Here comes another fight…

Well it’s good for the gander
But is it good for me now
The peace that I’m after
Has yet to be found
You know that I gotta find
A way not to lose my mind
Track Name: Puerto Peñasco
Do you remember when we took all of our friends
To that restaurant in the sticks? We got our picture taken in a jail cell
Makes me want to get away
To Puerto Peňasco
And drink on the beach all day
I’m gonna call my guy and he’ll say
“I don’t mind
I’m there all the time
I go down all the time
Me and Martha ain’t scared
Well, we go once a year
We go down all the time”

Carrie Lynn I hear you sneakin’ in again
Up on the roof of the front porch havin’ trouble with the bedroom window
These kids are gonna drive us crazy
That’s why I wanna get away
And drink on the beach all day
I’m gonna call Tom Dye and he’ll say
“I don’t mind
I’m there all the time
I go down all the time
Me and Martha ain’t scared
Well we go twice a year
We go down all the time”

“I don’t mind
I’m there all the time
I go down all the time
Me and Martha ain’t scared
Hell, we’re movin’ down there
We go down all the time
Come down any time you like”
Track Name: Unimpressed
If I wasn’t such a familiar face
How would you put me in my place?
Cuz I can’t help but think that
If you didn’t know me
You’d be there to cut me down
“Worst song, worst sound, leave town.”

Mowing everybody down, but here I am:
right side up!

If you didn’t know me by my name
Would you respect me just the same?
or would ya
Murmur that you hate me?
Huh? Eviscerate me?
Use your tongue to cut me down?
“Worst tune, worst band in the whole town.”

Mowing everybody down, but here I am:
Right side up!

I’ll keep cool. I’m old enough to know my role.
Don’t worry, I won’t repeat a thing that cold.
I’ll keep cool. I’m young enough to join in too.
Don’t worry. I’m just as unimpressed as you.

Maybe one day I’ll be miles away
Still I could guess what you might say
“Used to be better, used to be bold
Looking kinda tired now.
Old dog, old trick, put him down.”

Mowing everybody down, but here I am:
Right side up!

I’ll keep cool. I’m old enough to know my role.
Don’t worry, I won’t repeat a thing that cold.
I’ll keep cool. I’m young enough to join in too.
Don’t worry, I’m just as unimpressed as you.
Track Name: Say Hello
Like a withered garland around my neck
I’m dwelling on the relics I can salvage from the wreck
I’m homeless on the range
White knuckled and estranged when you shake my cage

Like a muddy footprint collecting rain
I’m reaching out at the reflection of your face
In cryptic choppy lines
That you wind around my mind

Because we never quite found the right way to say hello
But you look at me like a madman you’d like to know

Like a late noon shadow casting black
Everything we utter we wish we could take back
And how can you be sure of the meaning of your words

When we never quite found the right way to say hello
But you look at me like a madman you’d like to know?

You missed the point or the point missed you
What to do?

We never quite found the right way to say hello
You look at me like a madman you’d like to know
