Track Name: Back In Your Life
please, please, please let me back in your life, it feels so good to hear about your wife
I don’t care if I cannot be with you, I just want us to be something
so I know it wasn’t all for nothing
thank you for the opportunity to heal this rift between you and me
even if we never speak again, at least we have peace within and that’s something
please, please, please let me back in your life
I can’t recall why we ever said goodbye
every time I think of you and me
I just want us to be something
Track Name: I'm The Same
catch a ride on time, killing all the false gods in my life
could you write my strife, on a book on a desk
under papers and a pack of cigarettes
I’m the same in my mind, in my mind
I’m the same, i’m feeling’ fine, feeling' fine
singing oh I’m alright, I’m alright
I'm alright
and my eyes, they were open
and my face, it was strange; and the day that I wake up
there won’t be any lies, no more lies
and so in the sun, I feel my life coming on. it’s coming on
I’m the same in my mind, in my mind
I’m the same, I’m feelin’ fine, feelin’ fine
singing oh I’m alright, I’m alright
I’m alright, I’m alright
Track Name: I Can Love You Better
I can love you better
I can love you
when you're mine all mine
I’ll build a house so fine
and in this house we will sing
and in this house we will fight
and in this house we will love
hear the floors creak at night
and in our room
I will swoon to you
in the light of the moon
you will see me come to you
taken by
taken by your beauty
I will come to you
Track Name: Folly
the tips of the palm trees
like the fingers of the vultures
moon among the clouds
is the eye of the grackle
the water in the sea
holds the ashes your bones gave
wind blows my salty hair
it’s the same wind on which
the pelicans soar
back and forth, back and forth
the tips of the palm trees
like the fingers of the vultures
moon among the clouds
is the eye of the grackle
Track Name: Good Man
well my brother, you know he was a good man
selling gas under the stars until the dawn
'til one day, he lost a fight to a bad man
just one shot was all he got and now he’s gone
and my sister you know she was a good girl
travel’n round, shakin' hands and singin' songs
'til one day when she was walkin' through the canyon
had a slip, took a trip and now she’s done
well my daddy you know he was a good man
had a boat and a crew of twenty two
'til one day he took that boat out to the ocean
sailed away and fell asleep under the blue
and my mama you know she was a good girl
she’d pray and read her bible everyday
'til one day when she was comin' out the chapel
she grabbed her heart and then the lord took her away
Track Name: Come Here
come here in the morning
before I have awakened
tell me I’m your only
tell me i’m your only one
life moves so fast these days
but I promise I will keep my, promise I will keep my pace
oh life moves so fast these days
when you come to town
say you’re gonna stay
no more travelin’ round
come on and say it, come on and say you’ll stay
everyone around sees me on my knees
pleading desperately
please just try and see
you belong with me
Track Name: Long Iron Chain
left my baby in north caroline
drove my car right down
past the central divide
past the central line
says that she loves me, says I’m mad
says I’m gonna send her
to an early death bed
to an early grave
but she says find me oh find me
a long iron chain to hold on to
I’m no good and it’s so bad
‘cause I know that I still love you
drove all day, drove all night
didn’t stop to look at them touristy sights
yeah, I made my way down to where the land is free
I drove my little car right down to the sea
winter’s gone I’m coming home
to that old dirt road in new mexico
so I won’t have to hear that old damn song
find me oh find me a long iron chain
find me oh find me
a long iron chain to hold on to
I’m no good and it’s so bad
‘cause I know that I still love you
Track Name: Champion
YOU’RE THE BEST ONE THAT I’VE EVER SEEN
YOU ARE THE VERY BEST ONE
I SEE YOU SMILING IN THE STREET, WAVING TO YOUR BUDDIES
YOU ARE THE QUEEN, & I WILL BE YOUR CHAMPION
LET ME BE YOUR CHAMPION
WORDS CANNOT SAY
I COULD NOT TELL YOU WHAT IT MEANS TO SEE YOU EVERYDAY
I’VE MELTED MY FEARS AWAY
ONLY FOR YOU MY BEAUTIFUL, ONLY FOR YOU
AND ONE DAY YOU’LL LEAVE ME TO LOOK AT THESE MEMORIES WE’VE MADE
SO I CAN MISS YOU, DON’T LET ME MISS YOU FOR ONE MORE DAY
AND WHEN I SEE YOU, IT WILL FEEL SO NATURAL
AND EVERYTHING WILL COME TOGETHER, MAKING LIFE WHOLE
HOLDING HANDS, MOVING THROUGH THE STREETS, TALKING ABOUT OUR DREAMS
LET ME HOLD THEM IN MY MIND UNTIL THEY ARE REAL
LET ME BE YOUR CHAMPION
YOU’RE THE BEST ONE THAT I’VE EVER SEEN, YOU ARE THE VERY BEST ONE
Track Name: The BBQ
everybody’s in the yard
they’re shaking hands, they’re playing cards
the neighbor girl is runnin' round
and then she falls down
everybody stops to stare
they start to whisper in their ear
“I think it was that little brown haired boy
that pushed her” but listen:
I will love you 'til I die
and though it feels we’re falling down
I will catch you I will, I promise you I will
I will love you 'til I’m gone.
Track Name: Bat
a bat flew to me in my dreams, a bat flew to me
showed me my own shadow
I knew what it meant right away
knew you wouldn’t survive
but I didn’t wanna say it out loud
her presence was fierce, but I was not afraid
told me stay awake and I will be okay
look in her eye told me something I already knew
the medicine was strong and I could not
avoid couldn’t go around the inevitable
you finally let go one day in the summer
had to call my sister, had to call my brother
tell ‘em you were flying on your way outta this world
a bat flew to me in my dreams, a bat came to me and
showed me my own shadow
Track Name: Lion Teeth
I see your lion teeth on top of, on top of me
smiling with your eyes like diamonds that melt the window pane
don’t you know that I can see you? and I’m not wondering if you’re staying; I don’t care; go ahead
one of these days you’re gonna leave that man, and you won’t have anyone around but the ghost of him
don’t you tell me that I’m the crazy one , you are much more crazy than me
I can see it written in the lines of your forehead, don’t you lie to me
don’t you even think about it, no. as soon as you do, I will know
I will dance, dance, dance my heart away, 'til the Earth will shake and break beneath my feet
and I will smell all the sweet smells
I will climb a ladder to your bed, I will creep to your head and I will listen to your stories
I will look to the stars on the ceiling and I will look upon those circles and
wonder where it is that I come from and where I am bound to be
I know that I’m a simple form and I deserve to be adored
and I will be the one that I have been waiting for
and everyone will see that we have come to be something more
yes, you will be something more as I am
Track Name: The Wind
oh the wind
she’s blowin all around me
the wind
she’s blowing autumn leaves around me
and i know she’s all that I need
she’s all that I see
she’s all I need to be I need to be
I need to be the wind
she’s blowin all around me
the wind
she’s blowing autumn leaves around me
and I know she’s all that I need
she’s all that I see
she’s all I need to be I need to be
I need to be the wind
