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

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.

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

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?

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

-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

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

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

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

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

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

-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
