Lyrics:I awaken feeling like a desert rose And were waiting on something that no one knows I had it but I lost it Found and I caught it Our dreams have all been burning Like the liars and their burdens Were just up in arms Lets take the long way home Sing me every song you know We are risin feeling like a restless wind And were begging for somewhere that someones been The walls have all been fallin Our knees are bruised from crawlin Taking, but not giving The howling hounds are stealing Were just up in arms, again Lets take the long way home Sing me every song you know Lets take the long way home
Lyrics:I dont need direction anymore My bags are pack theyre waiting at my door The foggy cities lifted from my eyes All in all Ive learned the road keeps pressing on Aint no time for mothers and fathers and friends Aint no time for love were leaving The time to abandon has already come Me and the producer were going down to Nashville tonight Me and the producer were gonna cut a record tonight Me and the producer were going down to Nashville tonight Me and the producer were going down to Nashville tonight Me and the producer were gonna cut a record tonight Me and the producer were going down to Nashville tonight
Lyrics:You and I were long before our time We couldn't think to run without the fear Of falling behind Now I'm caught up in dramatics The cynics and fanatics that Walk a straight line And the earth, it might as well be flat When the sun won't shine I said I'd call just as I got home But there's no need to wait up Or answer the phone if you're gone So why can't I feel all this love That I'm made of When I know my heart is still beating I'm at a loss, but I swear I'm not losing - I'm holding on I'm holding on to you You and I were long before our time We couldn't think to run without the fear Of falling behind But it's a postcard summer A song for another And you were just too busy When I was undercover for you So why can't I feel all this love That I'm made of When I know my heart is still beating I'm at a loss, but I swear I'm not losing - I'm holding on I'm holding on to you I'm breathing fine without you Won't hide all my laugh lines I know my dreams will wake up And I'll do all I can do Make it up to you
Lyrics:See you on the far corner of Bryant park Over pristine grass In an underground bar See you by the subway Meet you after dark In the new york city rain New york city rain Scared to be someone Was scared to even dance But these streets and avenues Got me waiting for a chance To jive with you till sundown And rumba till the dawn In the new york city rain New york city rain New york city rain Want to take a piece of you And glue it in a book But well never see the music in those pictures that you took Helium Balloon: All around me Lovers, haters Couch potatoes Kids out to war If you listen To the rhythm You will Aind what youre looking Find what youre looking for We got tailored suits and skintight jeans Girls with lashes, boys with weaves Bleached white teeth and drama queens Someone for everyone Someone to live for Someone to die for And when you Aind the one Your rocket to the moon Your helium balloon Then dont let go. Dont let go? All around me Imitators Innovators I want to work you over And feel your every move In the new york city rain New york city rain New york city rain Back down to ground you can feel it on the street it is written in the lines on all the faces that you meet lets stay young forever and never fall asleep In the new york city rain New york city rain New york
Lyrics:I wish I could turn my brain off And we could float down stream But I know, nothing in your life Is ever as it seems Nothing feels real When youre living in your families fear The places you go and the people you meet They wont trump your anxiety And know what were done Its plain to see That you never were All Id ever need All Id ever want darling All Id ever need I wish I could turn my brain off And we could float down stream But you are a preachers daughter And he dont want me in your promised land And now that were done Its plain ton see That you never were my baby All Id ever need All Id ever want darling All Id ever need But youre too far Baby youre too far out of reach
Lyrics:I go out walking after midnight Out in the moonlight just like we used to do I'm always walking after midnight, After midnight searching for you I walk for miles along the highway Well, that's just my way of saying, I love you I'm always walking, always walking After midnight searching for you See a weeping willow crying on her pillow Maybe she's crying for me And as the skies turn gloomy winds whisper to me I'm lonesome Im lonesome as I can be I go out walking after midnight Out in the moonlight, just hoping you may be Somewhere walking, somewhere walking After midnight searching for me

Lyrics:See where they sift on weekends / At a diner on the northside of town / She walks the floor / Those nights until four / Serving coffee, the bar's closed down / They start filing in at 2:30 AM / They stumble and fumble about / Seems out of place / A sad smile on her face / Cause on the inside she just wants to shout / The truckers in the diner all know her by name / Say since you've got sober this town ain't the same / Katharine don't fall off that wagon / Dragging your burden around / Sooner or later its bound to get better again / It can't get worse than it is for you now / She clocks out and walks home the long way / Stopping off at the all night five ten / Cigarettes, lottery tickets / Thinking someday my luck will come in / She comes home to a messy apartment / And a tall stack of overdue bills / She opens up the medicine cabinet / Takes a hard look at new sleeping pills / Looks in the mirror / And then looks away / And then hears herself say / Katharine don't fall of that wagon / Dragging your burden around / Sooner or later its bound to get better / It can't get no worse for you now / Katharine is 11 months sober / She's got sponsors and meetings and steps / She walks the line one day a time / She cries when she's all by herself / Thinks back to 11 months prior / Waking up behind the wheel of a car / Keys in her hand / She tried but she can't recall / Getting home from the bar / That day was a special occasion / Her only daughter was set to be wed / She talk a few shots / Got drunk and forgot / Spent the afternoon passed out in bed/ Mother and daughter haven't spoke since that day / She looks at that phone and wonders / What would I say /Katharine don't fall of that wagon / Dragging your burden around / Sooner or later its bound to get better / It can't get no worse for you now
Lyrics:No matter what I do, I know youre keeping tabs Everything I say goes into that mental notebook you have And I dont think its fair, but I dont have a choice Oh, its just the way my cards keep fallin And if I were to go, I know youd be upset But everything I am can be purchased or created again And I dont think its fair, Im so easily replaced But its just the way Ive been evolving (chorus) Give me ten million more years Ill grow scales and claws and steel jaws Watch my weak heart disappear Well go excavating for my fossil tears Take it down a notch, with you its hard to breath Every time we talk Im always disagreeing to agree And I dont think its fair, but thats the way it is Oh, its just the way my cards keep fallin If I were to go, I know youd be upset I know how I made you feel in bed and youd want it again And I dont think its fair, but thats the way we live Oh its just the way Ive been evolving
Lyrics:Paint me a picture And sign with your name Itll pay off my mortgage one day You might not see it I know what youre worth And I pray to god you never change Write me a poem Of something you love With the big words you learned back in school I promise Ill read it But not that Ill get it See, Im a bit simpler than you (chorus) Oh, the way you make me smile Put your suitcases down wont you stay for a while? And Ill do my best to make this real Im trying, I swear, but its hardest to feel Down by the river I swallowed my heart and the space made it easier to breathe Now when I miss you My stomach goes wild Oh, the pain brings me down to my knees So, maybe its best if We leave this for now Put aside like an old recipe We might still crave it Of course I still crave it Were just not what we used to be (chorus) Please dont leave, youre the only one I need
Lyrics:Two thousand miles Across the sky I had no idea What was waiting on the other side From a place Id never been Came a face Id never seen Now Im caught in the middle of the mysterys teeth Wondering what tomorrow will bring Waking up on the floor Pressed against the door Was the woman of desire Putting flames in the fire Of the black hole in my soul She gave me those Minneapolis blues O, those Minneapolis blues She asked if I could hang around she was singing I asked if I could roll a smoke or two She took off all her clothes as we were kissing With every new lover she got a tattoo And I got those Minneapolis blues She sang me her favorite song I tried to sing along But the clock in the kitchen read 7 to 11 And she said its time to go So I flew back to LA And tried to push her from my brain She will reappear every time I hear that God melody It give me those Minneapolis blues
Lyrics:I've put my weight against the weather, I laid my hands upon the wheel. But they're only holy harlots, so I try not to feel the winds blow, the winds blow. And the weeds turn to the city, and my mind turns back and sees you climbing into my bed with the dirt brushed off your feet. Winds do howl, winds do howl. Ooh, ooh. And if the heart's a lonely hunter, then the eyes are lying thieves that keep me from your fingers, climbing up my sleeves. Winds do howl, winds do howl. And your naked shoulders tell me that I'm awfully close to sin. Praise the good Lord that your hover doesn't know where you have been. Winds do howl, winds do howl. Ooh, ooh. And there were roots down in the river, back when I was just a boy. And there was something pure within me that just ain't pure no more. Winds have howled, red winds have howled. Ooh, ooh.
Lyrics:Yes sir I went down down down to the devil's nest on the river banks to pay my respects no no no I did not linger long just long enough to sing this song goodbye, goodnight I'm leaving you for a better life goodbye, don't cry I'm leaving you for a better life So I ran back back back into my mother's arms to tell her how I had turned it around all this talk of the Holy Ghost where he lives but mamma, where did he go Goodbye, goodnight he'll still be here in the morning light goodnight, close your eyes he'll still be here in the morning light all you haters are gonna learn how to love and all you lovers are gonna hold them up all beware the snake and the wolf creepin' around they're gonna get what is yours So I went back back back to the river banks to dip my head and say my thanks all the sinners in their winter coats grabbing out for that holy ghost have said Goodbye, goodnight we'll see you in the afterlife goodbye, don't cry he's coming back when the time is right
