Track Name: Love Is
I feel like I'm shadowed by hazy stars above me. And they're all shining bright for me. I've seen days of chaos, winter rains that wouldn't leave. But I came clean cause I believed. I wanna find love and I wanna keep it. I had it once but I didn't mind leaving it. But I was younger then, and I learned everything alone. Alone. Love is an aeroplane. It can travel across the world. And lift you high above, and still it'll never change. Love is a gentle word, even when your pride is hurt. Won't turn you away. Won't bring up yesterday. Even though the days grow, longer by the minute. I know there is hope in hope itself. When I'm growing tired, and I feel faith is drifting. I remember love is what I'm working toward. Love is a heavy kiss when you don't deserve it. It forgives, forgets, it never turns it’s back on you. Love is an empty cup. It takes time to fill it up. Even when you can't see it you can fill it lifting you. Love is, love is, love is everything.
Track Name: Bandits
We know most people they get tiresome we gotta find a way to get around them. The open road it ain't my home but when you're close everyone else looks lonesome. Let's hitch a ride to somewhere stark where the law won't recognize your face. I'll hold you close, we'll find new names and then forget why we are running. Tell me. We're in this together. Relax. I won't let them near you. I heard they got a sun of gold that shines down on Mexico. When we get there all tired and broke we'll leave the camaro in the desert. If we get caught I wouldn't turn you in, I would pretend like I don't know you, if I had to. It'd break my heart but if I knew you got away it'd give me peace of mind till the day I died. Tell me. We're in this together. Relax. I won't let them near you. But I awoke to blaring sirens so I covered you with my jacket. They bound my hands with metal bands but I screamed to be distracting. I drove away in their back seat, saw your crying eyes behind the tumble weeds. When I get out, I'll come to find you, cause you're my other half, I never told you that, never told you that.
Track Name: Unsinkable Ships
Unsinkable ships. The water came in I said to hell with it. If we're gonna make it out we're not gonna advertise it. We'll walk with our eyes closed. What's ahead I'd rather never know if we're gonna make it out. We're all thrown out pennies in a wishing well. So I took a trip up the mountain that would never end. I felt a flood inside of me. When I pulled up onto Inca Street. He taught me love and facts. That we're not sinking we're just tunneling down to a place that's out of reach from all the sickness that covers everything. I gave up on giving up on me. I gave up on giving up.
Track Name: Breakdown
You threw me out on the sidewalk last night
You dumped my clothes out the window too
I threw rocks at the glass panes and wood
We need to talk I needed a word with you

we made up on the couch on the floor
but you told me i needed to lose
a few pounds on the body I love
I went to work and I talked with a man I grew up with

He said, "Oh, a sad sight you are. You are slowly unraveling me. Oh, no tears on a Tuesday you need better than what he can give you"

He held me tight for longer than normal
I cuddled close I couldn't believe it
he whispered words in my ear it was nice
but it wasn't the same when he called me the wrong name

I ran off down the street down the corner
and he caught me in his arms
and once again he delivered a comfort
a need i had known ever since i was young

he said "oh a sweet sight you are you are slowly unraveling me. Oh, I 'd kill for your heart, what a strange man indeed who would lose you."

oh a sweet sight you are you are slowly undoing me
oh I'd kill for your heart. What a strange man indeed who could lose you.
Track Name: Mary Ann
She's got tiger eyes and they're floating across the room. But they stop on you and they don't move away. She's got lips like razor blades that shine like moons. Born in Tennessee, she's got it out for me. Mary Ann, won't you step away from me for a while? I'm feeling hunted down. He is mine and this time you won't find your way in. Mary Ann, won't you step away from me for a while. Now I've seen that look of yours two years ago. It's all a game to you but now I can play it too. Hard as hell to find a good man and I, I gave him all of me. You won't take him that easy. You walk to him. Pull up your skirt to sit down. Whisper in his ear. It comes so naturally. The music's loud, but I still hear his voice. The words I won't forget so loud and clear. His words so loud and clear he says: Mary Ann, won't you leave me alone for a while? Can't you see that lady sitting there? Well she is the only one that makes me crazy. Mary Ann, won't you leave me alone for a while? I see your beauty. Mary Ann, there's only one girl here that I want truly. Mary Ann, won't you leave me alone for a while.
Track Name: Better Off
I could call your mother to tell her the truth
She could give the message to you
I could write a letter or give you a note, but I won't

because you're better off
to never know
my aliby
which is loving you so

I never cheated or looked astray
Don't know who spread that fire
But I think that you know deep down inside
You are my hearts desire

I hold you back when I hold your hand
you're better off when your own man

baby take your last look don't say goodbye
love don't mean that much anyway
Don't give me a hard time if I close my eyes
I'm o.k.
Track Name: Said and Done
When we're comfortable and we're all grown up
when it's all said and done will you still love me?
when those younger girls are more beautiful
and I'm old but I'm still tryin' will you still love me?

Will you still get up when I walk in?
Will we still make love without stoppin' to breath?
Oh baby will you still love me?

When that man pulls up, gets his papers out,
when it's all said and done will you still love me?
If we lose our home and our children go
when it's all said and done will you still love me

Will you still get up when I walk in?
Will we still make love without stoppin' to breath?
Will you still stand up when I'm broken
will you still bother without choosin' to leave oh baby
will you still love me?
Track Name: Summer Clothes
I quit smoking come July. Sun was too strong in my lungs. Fog like sea foam in the night. Headlights safely took me home. Bodies steaming up the windows. You told me you didn't know how. I said, "I will wait for you to grow. I don't wanna take your youth from you now." You gave me all your summer clothes. They had grown too small for you. You were itching to see the world. I had nothing left for you. My last summer with you. Heavy nights under the moon. The stars and interrupted beehive. Love so simple no one understood. Carved our names with your pocketknife.
Track Name: Separate
There are times when I'm feeling like I've lost all control, and I'm talking 'bout a year or more. And I remember when I was a kid and it was simple. I couldn't ask for more. And I was heading down the straight and narrow. But then the devil pulled me in by my elbows. He gently removed my blindfold. I said, "Don't show me more." Please, please, please, please, please. If I changed the worlds rotating, you still gonna leave? Please, please, please, please, please. All of the warm I'm missing, I guess you don't need. There are times when I'm feeling like I didn't sleep at all. And I'm talking 'bout a week or more. And I remember when I got my first lousy car, and I was out the door. But back then I was looking forward to the cold. Moving back and forth and upside down and growing younger. Nothing could stop it. The driving inside, it's older. Please, please, please, please, please. If I changed the worlds rotating, you still gonna leave? Please, please, please, please, please. All of the warm I'm missing, I guess you don't need. The things I lost in the fire. Make it hard to keep my food down. Ten years gone in a hurry. All I got was my hands dirty. I stop myself from starting something cause I can already see how it's gonna end up ahead of me. If I'm gonna be beat by a drowning, gonna jump that bridge, gonna jump that bridge, not be thrown in. The things I lost in the fire.
Track Name: I Need You In It
This time around, I'm feeling blue. Things were a dream for a short while. I'm feeling pain. Think it's still you. I shouldn't have said what was said, Oh. I've tried everything a stronger woman should be, like a tree, never bowing or bending. Baby, alright, there I've said it. Since I told you to leave, I've been thinking. Baby, come back, I can't help it. When you leave my side my whole world stands still. Babe, ok, fine, I'll admit it. In my life I need you, I need you in it. Remember the words, I said to you, was give me some space some alone time. I changed my mind, and I called to you, I heard your sweet voice on the telephone. And you said, "My love how could I ever stop loving you. I'm already on my way home. Already on his way home. I'm gonna see you so soon. On my way back to you, oh, back to you.
Track Name: Teddy Loves Her
Get up and go. I know you want her. I can see it in your eyes. Boy don't even try and hide. What else must you know. Don't analyze. Love can be so simple. When you leave your past behind. Go and get her, go and get her. Ya she's waiting for you. Ya she's waiting for you. Don't you bother, don't you bother, with what you're gonna say, with what you're gonna do. It'll come to you. You feel ashamed. You walked away. She's already forgiven you. And I know you know this too. When you're feeling like the world is empty. You'll find her love, cause it's ready. So you're feeling unsure, but you know it feels right. Baby's green eyes know no boundaries. Everything in life you need is free. I said, everything in life you need is free.
