Track Name: Desperate Woman
You were running around with one eye open, and the other eye broken. Breaking down our love. You work too hard girl, to break my heart. Lord knows that we were doomed from the start.

Oh my desperate woman! You work too hard to break my heart - you’re running wild like a little girl.

Now that it’s over I feel relieved- you’ve never been all that good on me. Now as a sleep away all these restless nights; gone are the days when everything was bright.

Oh my desperate woman! You work too hard to break my heart - you’re running wild like a little girl.

Take all of your things and walk out that door- it’s not a big surprise you’re not welcome anymore. This love that we had has gone way to long, all the sunshine in my world is gone.

Oh my desperate woman! You work too hard to break my heart - you’re running wild like a little girl.
Track Name: Gone For Good
How dare you?

I waste my time crying over you because your mine. That much is true, because you lie. Show me the door or draw them blinds. Take me outside and draw the line because I find

You’re gone for good.
10’000 miles, you’re gone for good.
Girl it show’s you’re gone for good.

I lost my mind. Lost in the gallows of our time. Never knew what all I could not find.
So new to me and I can’t deny. Not good for me and so I’ll try.

You’re gone for good.
10’000 miles, you’re gone for good.
Girl it show’s you’re gone for good.
Track Name: In The Trees
There’s a village that sits up on the hill, cast from the others and left to discover themselves. Cast from the others, cast from the streets we found ourselves a home in the peaks.

And I don’t know what it means, no I don’t know what it means.

But I’ll travel down by the lake where I let the clean air taste me,
I don’t know what it means but I’ll let this world embrace me.
I’ve been searching for a long time walking to where I’m supposed to be,
and If I’m ever gonna find my lover I’ll find her in the trees.

There’s a teacher who preaches about the man on the street,
he says, “He’s dirty, he’s lonely and he doesn’t know God.”
Yet the Devil he’s crying from the ground below because the man on the street he’s got a heart of gold.

And I don’t know what it means, no I don’t know what it means.

But I’ll travel down by the lake where I let the clean air taste me,
I don’t know what it means but I’ll let this world embrace me.
I’ve been searching for a long time walking to where I’m supposed to be,
and If I’m ever gonna find my lover I’ll find her in the trees.
Track Name: The Cloudy Days
I’m not gonna listen to what you told me,
I’m not gonna do all the things she said.
I cannot believe from all our times and trials,
that things didn’t really go the way we planned.

These cloudy days, they’re gonna come on by,
And if you wink a lash at me, well I’ll bat an eye.
I cannot believe from all our times and trials,
that things didn’t really go the way we planned.

Let me be- leave me alone.
If you’ve come to play throw me a bone.
Still you cannot see? I don’t know why
things didn’t really go the way we planned.
Track Name: Sally
My letter it flies on a jet plane to a girl on the outskirts of town.
I cannot be with you always, so let my words just kiss your mouth

I miss my sweetheart, Sally, a girl that I knew so young.
She told me once when we were all alone that she had found true love.

Yes, she loved me just because.

Is there a better way to send my love to you?
Is there a better way to show you?

She writes to me, says she misses me- she’d like to see me again.
She’d like to come home and hold my hands, but all of that depends.

Because she’s got other plans.

Is there a better way to send my love to you?
Is there a better way to show you?

I love my sweetheart, Sally, a girl from the outskirts of town.
I cannot be with you always, so let my words just kiss your mouth.
Track Name: Pointy Hands and Tired Fingers
Ten fingers and a couple of hands
A corner shop and a newspaper stand
Twenty acres on a frozen land
Bank accounts with a couple of grand

But when I look inside
I realize that I don’t have that much.

Pointy hands and tired fingers
The words you whisper yeah they tend to linger
Cut through me with a poisonous stinger
Blow through me like an opera singer

So when I look inside
I realize that I don’t have that much

But what do you got?

Well I got no money and so much soul
And too many people up there they got too much gold
And I try to make it big, try to shake the cold but
All my efforts they all turn into mold

So when I look inside
I realize I don’t have that much.

But what do you got?

When I look inside
I realize I don’t have that much.
Track Name: This Town
The leaves on the trees are starting to fall- let’s take a walk, let’s get outside.
Let’s go before the day grows cold.

We could do nothing, or we could do something- it doesn’t matter to me because I like your company.
Let’s go before the day grows cold.

If you’re in my town and you’d like to take a look around, why don’t you give me a ring? Girl, we could do
everything there is to do in this town.

Side by side is the way I like best. Don’t worry baby this isn’t a test;
Just know the world is one big show.

We could do nothing, or we could do something- it doesn’t matter to me because I like your company.
Let’s go before the day grows cold.

If you’re in my town and you’d like to take a look around, why don’t you give me a ring? Girl, we could do
everything there is to do in this town.
Track Name: There Was a Time
There was a time
When all was blue
And I knew not what to do

They told me wrong
They told me true
But I could not get over you

But I know

There was a time when all was bleak
That goal of ours? No, we could not reach.
The winds were strong, the seas were rough
And I could never get enough of you.

There was a Time

There was a time when all went dark.
That love of ours, yeah, it lost its spark.
I was lost. So alone…
A broken heart, and a dial tone
It’s true, I miss you.

There was a time when all looked bleak
That goal of ours? No we could not reach.
But I am strong, oh, so tough.
And I could never get enough of you.

It’s true.

There was a time
Track Name: Walkin' in The Night
I was standing on the lake,
I was staring at the sky.
I was looking real high up in the air.

Send the needles from the pines,
To the marrow of my bones.
The cold air she climbs into my soul.

Lay me down and close my eyes.
Lay me down and close my mind.

I was walking in the night,
I was shooting in the dark.
I was feeling real good in those bright lights.

Saw a man on the street,
A cherry from his teeth.
People lying on the ground like slabs of meat.

We’re all just the same.

I was walking in the caves,
By the cold river banks.
I was going down to that other side.

Lay me down and close my eyes.
Lay me down and close my mind.
Track Name: The Wind
Some men were lazy, and some men were crazy; some men they looked to the sky.
Some men were dreamers, and others believers. Many just sat and asked why?
Some men were brothers while others discovered the world that you make in your mind.
Some tried to teach us, but most will not reach us and this will all pass in time.

The wind, she blows. Why is she so cold?

Up from the fountains, up rose those mountains, they climbed and they kissed the sky.
The prairies and pastures are tended by masters and yield the Earth’s reply.
The streets are all empty, the families have plenty, the mother she nurses her boy.
The girl she grows weaker- she cannot speak and she wants to feel alive.

The wind. The wind she blows. Why is she so cold?
Track Name: Killer Katherine
She was wearing her high heels when she crossed the county line. A red dress in the morning, this girl she was fine. But don’t be deceived, because these looks make men bleed.

Killer Katherine, she’ll skin you to the bone.

See she trekked cross the nation, a thousand miles she has roamed. "The wayfaring widow," to some she is known. And it’s poor men like me who just can’t learn to see-- that

Killer Katherine, she’ll skin you to the bone.

Well ten years it’s been when I saw that girls grin-- on the day that she took my home, money, and gin. Oh friends, don’t be deceived-- these looks make men bleed.

Killer Katherine, she’ll skin you to the bone.
