Track Name: Would You Like To?
Would you like to
Touch the ground
See the place where I fell down

Do you want to
Fool around
Bury me
Where I can’t be found

Do you wanna do a dance with me
Do you wanna do a dance with me
Do you wanna do a dance with me
Do you wanna have a drink with me

Trace the corners
Of her smile
Hold her ring
Go on trial

Spill a Guinness
Down my pants
Squeeze me
Like I’ve gotta chance

Do you wanna do a dance with me
Do you wanna do a dance with me
Do you wanna do a dance with me
Do you wanna have a drink with me

Would you like to
Have a kid
Love forever
Like our parents did

Forget tomorrow
And yesterday
Hold me now
It’s not too late

Do you wanna do a dance with me
Do you wanna do a dance with me
Do you wanna do a dance with me
Do you wanna have a drink with me
Track Name: Hold You Tight
Boogie round with me
Won’t you talk down from the tree
Gonna hold you tight
Until the end of the night, oh, oh

Won’t you let down your hair
Won’t you come on and play fair
I just wanna touch your cheek
On a midnight

Light a fire, or just cool down
Put on your white, wedding gown
Light a fire, or just cool down
Put on your white, wedding gown

I’m not here to beg
Even in the haze
You were there and I was too
Think we’ve paid our dues

Light a fire, or just cool down
Put on your white, wedding gown
Light a fire, or just cool down
Put on your white, wedding gown

Gonna hold you tight, until the end of the night, oh, oh.
Track Name: Sunshine In The Rain/Be My Love
Sunshine in the rain
Won’t you tell me your name
Won’t you cool my flame
Give it up, give it up.

Take you down to the hill
Where we took all of those pills
Where we swore, we’d never part
Didn’t know, didn’t know

Be my love
Be my love
It’s you I adore
What are we waiting for?


Indian bones, we sleep upon
Corn grows, sacred songs/psalms
Is that a whisper in your ear
Have no fear, have no fear

Body warm next to me
You laughed, and kissed my cheek
Said it was, a perfect day
Was a perfect day

Be my love
Be my love
It’s you I adore
What are we waiting for?

Is it real?
Can you feel?

Be my love
Be my love
It’s you I adore
What are we waiting for?

Once again inside this bar
I watch your beauty from afar
I can’t believe how sweet you are
I can’t believe, can’t believe
Track Name: Dream With Me
Go to sleep, you better go to sleep
You better go to sleep, right now
Come to me, open up to me
Open up your sheets, baby.

Cause tomorrow we gotta be tough
Show the world that we don’t give up

Dream with me, come on, dream with me
Tell me everything, don’t be afraid of anything

Cause the world is not enough
Need a dream that we don’t give up

If you reach for me, I will reach for you tonight
I will dream for you, will you dream for me tonight?

Morning brings, your love back to me
I wouldn’t trade a thing, you make my heart sing

Cause the world is not enough, need a dream that we don’t give up
Cause the world is not enough, need a dream that we don’t give up

If you reach for me, I will reach for you tonight
I will dream for you, will you dream for me tonight?
Track Name: Goodbye Terry
Broken windows
The suburbs laugh
Happiness in television
See the world out of gas
Is the world out of cash?

Goodbye, Terry
Know we’re gonna miss you
Goodbye, Terry
You were the only one
You were the only one

Suns going down
Ripe women walk this plastic street
He ran in high school
Now he’s got two stumps for feet
Now the town mother’s cry for free

Goodbye, Terry
Know we’re gonna miss you
Goodbye, Terry
You were the only one
You were the only one

There’s a huge hole
Where his smile used to be
Baby girl, has his eyes
But his eyes she’ll never see

A love born once
Can never, never die
A love born once
Must never, never die

Goodbye, Terry
Know we’re gonna miss you
Goodbye, Terry
You were the only one
You were the only one

It’s an empty town
All the mines are gone
That my grandfather built
That my grandfather built

Now I stand at your grave Now I stand in the sun
Hold my daughter’s hand
In my suit and tie
In my suit and tie
Track Name: Down For Days
-I've been trying to reach you
I've been trying to tell you
Just how I feel

I wouldn't be here
Be here without you
I wouldn't know what's real

Nobody believes, but I still do
I'm so afraid
She won't hold my hand
She won't hold my hand
She won't hold my hand
She won't hold my hand

I've been down and down for days
I've been down and down for days
I've been down and down for days
I've been down

-They walk away but I'm, still standing
And I hope you won't kiss my cheek
I know I failed, I know I, know let you down
Touch your face and try to speak again

Nobody believes, but I still do
I'm so afraid
She won't hold my hand
She won't hold my hand
She won't hold my hand
She won't hold my hand

I've been down and down for days
I've been down and down for days
I've been down and down for days
I've been down

Rest your weary head upon my shoulder
Rest your weary head upon my shoulder
Rest your weary head upon my shoulder
Rest your weary head upon my shoulder
Track Name: All That I'm Missing
All that I’m missing, all that I’m missing, cause I was scared, scared, scared Bm-D-A
All that I’m missing, all that I’m missing, cause I was scared, scared, scared

What it means to walk in the morning A
What it means to eat breakfast
What it means when the powers out
What it means when you confess

All that I’m missing, all that I’m missing, all that I’m missing Bm-D-A
All that I’m missing, all that I’m missing, all that I’m missing

Turn me on, turn me off A
Don’t even know what I hope to find
Be my love, be my enemy
Throw dust in my hair and save me

All that I’m missing, all that I’m missing, all that I’m missing Bm-D-A
All that I’m missing, all that I’m missing, all that I’m missing

Well you reach the age F#m-D-A-D
Where you’re swerving around and around
If you could burn this page
Bury the ashes deep in the ground
Bury the ashes deep in the ground
Bury the ashes
Deep in the ground

Moon on your black hair A-A/B-D
Your leg warm against mine
Sand spills from your fingers
The waves will crash all night

Moon on your black hair A-A/B-D
Your leg warm against mine
Sand spills from your fingers
The waves will crash all night
The waves will crash all night
The waves will crash
All night

All that I’m missing, all that I’m missing, cause I was scared, scared, scared Bm-D-A
All that I’m missing, all that I’m missing, cause I was scared, scared, scared
Track Name: Face To Face
Why do you, wanna treat me this way?
Why do you, wanna treat me this way?
Well I see you downtown, you don’t recognize me
Well you shoot, then you smile, wasn’t that a dream?
Well you walk, you walk, you walk.
Well you walk, you walk, you walk.

Times go by, feelin’ like dirt
Said you’re feelin’ down, baby everyone’s hurt
Well the skies are dark, darker than ever before
You gotta lift yourself up, oh you gotta find the door
You gotta lift yourself up, oh you gotta find the door, the door, the door

Everyones’s buried, all inside of Facebook
I am buried, all inside of Facebook
Let’s get face to face to face to face to face
Let’s get face to face to face, ah to face


OH OH OH

I’ve been thinking bout you, oh every single night
Oh I wonder if you ever, think of me?
What the hell are we gonna do?
Got a paddle no canoe
Oh baby, oh baby, oh baby
Oh baby, oh baby, oh baby

OH OH OH
Track Name: August Nights
Face broken, heart a wreak
On your knees like a saint
We live in shallow times
Lookin’ down at your phone all the time
Let me sink, into your eyes
Touch the bruise on your thigh
Tryin’ to get you to
Wake up to the idea of me

August nights, just close your eyes
Say the word, I’ll stay all night
August nights, and the stars so bright
Say the word, I’ll stay all night

I’m a billboard, Dixie Highway
On your road to hell
Feel like, a tainted soul
That’s never letting go
Throw me, away
Without a thought or page
It’s gone, it’s gone, it’s gone away
It’s gone, it’s gone, it’s gone

August nights, just close your eyes
Say the word, I’ll stay all night
August nights, and the stars so bright
Say the word, I’ll stay all night

Wake up in a dream you were still there with me
So real when you touched my cheek

In the dust, it hurts
It hurts pretty bad
I called, I wrote
It’s like I’m dead
Don’t worry, I’m fine
I’ll be all right
Find somebody else to text
Kick you little girl out of the nest

August nights, just close your eyes
Say the word, I’ll stay all night
August nights, and the stars so bright
Say the word, I’ll stay all night
Track Name: Leave Me In The Sun, Leave Me In The Waves
Oh you fight the days
Swallow the nights
I’ll never see you
In this life

You wanna control
What you can’t control
Cause you can’t handle
All this ugliness

She’s the most, She’s the most, Beautiful

Give me the apple
I’ll take a bite
You taste sweet
You are so ripe

Let the Devil sink
Pierce the night
In a bus station
Wavin’ bye bye, bye bye

She’s the most, She’s the most, Beautiful

Don’t you think I know
Every lie
Don’t you think I know
It aint all right

Love is love
It’s got no direction
Love is love
It’s got no direction

She’s the most, She’s the most, Beautiful

Leave me the sun, leave me in the waves

Well they shoot you in the back
Or right between the eyes
Make you feel so good
Make you feel all right

I would walk, walk, walk
Walk for her
She’s the most beautiful
Thing in this world

She’s the most, She’s the most, Beautiful

I will squeeze behind you
Every night
Put a leash around you
And make you fight

Won’t you send me a letter
Write me a song
Won’t you send me a letter
Write me a song

She’s the most, She’s the most, Beautiful

You said I was amazing
Deep inside
You said I was amazing
It’s a lie, a lie, a lie

She’s the most, She’s the most, Beautiful

Leave me the sun, leave me in the waves
Track Name: Sunday Morning/I Don't Know
Sunday morning
Momma I’m drinkin’
Sunday morning
The birds don’t mind

Sunday morning,
Momma I’m drinkin’
I played last night
I can’t sleep

Baby’s away
Gone up North
Baby’s away
Why did she leave

Chorus I don’t know, I don’t know

Tried to catch your eye
Thought you felt my shame
Thought you winked at me
Didn’t know.

Sunday morning
Momma I’m sleeping
Face down on the concrete
I don’t mind

Chorus But I don’t know, I don’t know

Live for tears and pain
Flies around my face
Why’d you love me?
I don’t know, I don’t know

Felt that way
Since the dawn of time
When you took my sister
You took my life, took my life

Chorus I don’t know, I don’t know
Track Name: Take This Ship To Shore
-In the summer two hearts collide I was feeling more dead than alive If you’d only let me
Part your lips tonight
Have a drink, sit in a pool
With the deaf and dumb
Up all night, waiting to cool
Won’t you wake with me in the sun?
Love you more than madness More than waves on the sea Love you more than madness More than waves on the sea Take this ship to shore
-Be my friend, be my girl
Put your hair all up in curls It’s killing me to live
On the other side of the world
Water towers, dried corn fields Dead deer, I’m losing my mind City smiles, then it steals
But your eyes are brown and kind
Love you more than madness More than waves on the sea Love you more than madness More than waves on the sea Take this ship to shore
-There is no death before the dirt
There is no love before the hurt
Come to me my love, come to me my love
Love you more than madness More than waves on the sea Love you more than madness More than waves on the sea Take this ship to shore
Take this ship to shore Take this ship to shore Take this ship to shore Take this ship to shore
