Track Name: Heart Lies
They’re not your own, child
Still beautiful in your eyes
Slow down for rushing of love
Pour out your blessings of above

All of the miles mean nothing to you
Turn on the smiles, they’ll help you through
Nothing will change if you don’t try
It’s easy to see where your heart lies
Geography stacked against poverty
All the greed of you and me

They’re not your own child
Still beautiful in your eyes
Slow down for rushing of love
Pour out your lessons of above

They’re not your own child
Still beautiful in your eyes
Slow down for rushing of love
Pour out your lessons of above

They’re not your own child
They’re not your own child
Track Name: Whiskey Ran Low
She didn’t leave a note on the door
Left a muddy boot track on the floor
Bloody fist gave the window pain
Grief and shame

CH:
When the whisky ran low she went and lost her mind
When the whiskey ran out yeah, she followed right behind
Foolish pride filled an empty bed
I cried into the couch regret unsaid
Probably should have listened to my old man
Wouldn’t understand

CH:
When the money ran low she went and lost her mind
When the money ran out yeah, she followed right behind

I guess your hearts not broke kinda like a bad joke
That

When the whisky ran low she went and lost her mind
When the whiskey ran out yeah, she followed right behind
When the money ran low she went and lost her mind
When the money ran out yeah, she followed right behind

She’s gone
She’s long gone
What went wrong
Yeah, she’s long gone
Track Name: Sunday
I met you on a Sunday as the sun fell on down
You gave me that look dear and my heart hit the ground
But things they got colder as the time drifted by
You left me alone dear and I’m not sure why

CH:
Don’t you tell me you’re leaving unless you’re sure that you’re gone
As you walk away you become a song, you become a song

I remember sitting on your porch late at night
Kissing you so softly under moon’s ray of light
Said we’d always be together but forever is gone
Tonight belongs to my heart cuz you needed your song

CH:
Don’t you tell me you’re leaving unless you’re sure that you’re gone
As you walk away you become a song, you become a song
Some loves last forever now I see you’ve moved on
As you walk away you become a song, you become a song

I met you on a Sunday as the sun fell on down
You gave me that look dear and my heart hit the ground
But things they got colder as the time drifted by
You left me alone dear and I’m not sure why

CH:
Don’t you tell me you’re leaving unless you’re sure that you’re gone
As you walk away you become a song, you become a song
Some loves last forever now I see you’ve moved on
As you walk away you become a song, you become a song
Track Name: Double Barrel Belfries
Unborn, unraised, but often times praised.
My love for this city in winter lights it’s pretty.
Frosted windows and north winds
Hills and where hills begin
Ice breaks where rivers cross
Head tilt back
And sorrows lost
CH.
And I feel it now as Carson’s seats turn white
And the trees bow down
Where bridges dodge the light
Double barrel belfries watch over us tonight
Double barrel belfries watch over us tonight

Not meant to last but these days go fast
My years have burned like the seasons have turned
On benches made of wood the whiskey tastes so good
So many friends walked in now I wonder just where they’ve been

CH.
And I feel it now as Barstow Streets turned white
And the trees bow down
Where bridges dodge the light
Double barrel belfries watch over us tonight
Double barrel belfries watch over us tonight

I think maybe we’re all just lonesome ghosts
Don’t you?
I think maybe we’re all just loathsome hosts
What’s new?
CH.
And I feel it now as Carson’s seats turn white
And the trees bow down
And the music fills the night
Double barrel belfries watch over us tonight
Double barrel belfries watch over us tonight
Track Name: Foghorn Love Affair
It’s a foghorn love analogy
The kind of love that says stay away from me
It’s a frequency you can feel, you can hear
It says danger stay clear
It’s a church bell calling out connecting all
The broken loneliness of some great and some small
You’re all alone and you’re standing at the pier
Danger stay clear

She’s gonna crash in time
I’m a fish trapped in a fishbowl
And didn’t commit a crime
I piss against the wind
And think of you again

You’re all alone and you’re standing at the pier
Danger stay clear
Track Name: Behind The Vault
I’m giving in for a little while
I want you to know
That’s it’s not so much the holding on
As the letting go
Just be still
Just be still

They say that time heals all wounds if you let it
So I will, yeah I will

Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh

Secret stargazing from behind the vault
You see my arms aren’t closed they’re open
Oh
I’m turning it back I’m drinking it in
Up until all hours in the dormitory

Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh

I’m giving in for a little while I want you to know
That it’s not so much the holding on as the letting go
Track Name: Lost
Standing in the dirt palms out
Looking for the shoes for her feet
Holey torn dress, it’s all a mess
Chin down
She must have felt lost when she came to you
She had no other choice
Could you stand up for her?
Would you be her voice?
It’s breaking her apart
It’s breaking her apart

Father look at what he’s done
Deliver up our secret
You can go turn him in and they would lock him away
What do you mean you’ve got nothing to say!
That “it’s not worth the beating this family would take if you are not telling it straight”
It’s breaking her apart
It’s breaking her apart

Too many times we go around blind
Unwilling to face this crime
Our daughters do the time
Enough is enough, let’s lift them up
Start to make things right
In love

Standing in the dirt palms out
Looking for the shoes for her feet
Holey torn dress that’s all a mess
Chin down
Track Name: Lovin' You
Loving you is like lying in a garden of nettles
It’s like grasping the stem of a rose that doesn’t have any petals
It’s like trying to quench your thirst with easy cheese
You gotta take a big huge breath, you can only wheeze

Now if a blade of grass can push itself through concrete
Don’t tell me we don’t have a chance to grow
A flower busts its way up down on main street
So, shut your mouth and breathe through your nose

You tried your way through her hard five-inch-thick skin
Making your way through the dark until you smash your shin
Tiny fragments of bone compound the issue
Your eyes they burn so bad you should have saved the tissue

And that instant flash of pain brings mind and mission
Nothing is as clear and certain as hindsight and 20/20 vision

Loving you is like lying in a garden of nettles
It’s like grasping the stem of a rose that doesn’t have any petals
Track Name: If We Don't Jump
Looks like your moving on
Just like I’m staying here
River called to you tempting every thought
After closing time you come crawling up inside my head

Wishing you would be around you’re like a song
One I haven’t written down

Let’s take some time
Talk it over
Cuz it’s been a while and I’m not over you
What would happen if we go down that road if we don’t jump I guess we’ll never know

Mid-September here you are again
What to say to you, could you understand
I wasn’t missing you but now I find you right back in my head
Wishing you would be around you’re like a song one I haven’t written down

Let’s take some time
Talk it over
Cuz it’s been a while and I’m not over you
What would happen if we go down that road if we don’t jump I guess we’ll never know
If we don’t jump I guess we’ll never know

I call out to you listen my old friend
We’ve been back and forth should this be the end
This is where you live you’ll always end up right back in my head
Could you always be around you’re like a song one I’ve finally written down

Let’s take some time
Talk it over
Cuz it’s been a while and I’m not over you
What would happen if we go down that road if we don’t jump I guess we’ll never know
If we don’t jump I guess we’ll never know
Track Name: Feeling My Way Through The Dark
I’m feeling my way through the dark
Just searching for some kind of spark
Didn’t mean to break our plans, or your heart
I’m just feeling my way through the dark
Yeah, feeling my way through the dark

Shiny figures dance in your head
As leaves and twigs fall in your bed
To stoke the fires that burn in my stead
I’m Feeling my way through the dark
Feeling my way through the dark

Rivers and roads, pathways and plans
All led me here with my head in my hands
Full of regret, lost in my mind
The importance of distance and time

I left while you were asleep
One last look is all that I need
But the heartache that’s yours to keep
I’m feeling my way through the dark
Feeling my way through the dark
