Track Name: New Orleans
You make me weak in the knees
cause it's you I want to please, my girl
I want you in my sleep
I can't wait for the morning light to creep

over our bed where we sleep
over our heads where we dream
of our big house way down south
in New Orleans just you and me

you make me trip over my feet
cause your kiss is so damned sweet, my girl
I want you in my sleep
I can't wait for the morning light to creep

over our bed where we sleep
over our heads where we dream
of our big house way down south in New Orleans

I'll dream of that big house
way down south in New Orleans
just you and me, just you and me, my girl
Track Name: Any Other Way
Go, my friend, find yourself a sweetheart
one who will carry you and your dreams away
think not one thought of the friend that you are leaving
he would not have it any other way

go, my girl, find yourself a new man
one who is not caught up in this changing world
think not on thought of the man that you are leaving
he would not have it any other way

go, my friend, searching for some far off land
somewhere that will hold you and make you want to stay
think not one thought of the friend that you are leaving
he would not have it any other way

leave, my love, build yourself a brand new home
somewhere that will hold you and make you want to stay
think not one thought and beat not one heartbeat
he would not have it any other way

like new raindrops fall on the mountain
we will roll to different streams
but we will all meet in the fountain
where sunlight howls and the ocean sings
the love we find will not be forgotten
when riverbeds pull us apart
the broken branches our hearts get caught in
will never change who we are
Track Name: Riverbed's Call
Wake up, smoke a cigarette, and leave
hit the ground running like you believe
the morning sun is shining at your feet
like a riverbed painted on concrete

water will flow, stones will roll
as we lay in the earth to hear the riverbed's call

you see the birds but you don't hear their tune
the hours pass as you wait for the moon
you shield your eyes as the evening sun falls
to the other side of the riverbed's call
Track Name: Tracing Back to You
I know I've known you for far too long a time
to walk right by you not say hello or goodbye
the way you call me like it just don't mean a thing
you hardly notice you're tugging on a string

you're still lovely
I'm still cold
when the spring rain falls

but I'm through wishing no more chasing shooting stars
they're all burned out like busted railroad cars
and all that bright smoke that went tracing back to you
left me gasping 'til it turned me blue

you're still lovely
I'm still cold
when the spring rain falls
let it fall
Track Name: Chicken Shack
Come around back to the chicken shack
bring your last dollar and don't look back
there's a troubled man by the railroad track
and he'll find you there

he'll say, "you come a long way, boy, outta the shade
through the midday sun where shadows attack
come and dip your head in my medicine
give me all your bread for a nicklesack"

words sped on the wind, thoughts from yesterday
you ask me how I've been, I guess I lost my way

so buy me a round, I'll give you a smoke
we'll sit on the stools 'til the tap runs dry
we'll have us a laugh with a couple of jokes
and won't ask why

well the spirits they say can't last through the day
so I'm going home, you say it's on your way
and when I ask what is left to say
you'll just grab my guitar and tell me to play

words sped on the wind, thoughts from yesterday
you ask me how I've been, I guess I lost my way
Track Name: The Art of How to Disappear
Many lonely nights I walked alone
all my hopes and dreams had flown
far away from here
in the stillness of the midnight moon
I gazed upon an open tomb
and naturally, I was filled with fear
an old man laying in the dirt, said
"come here, son, this will not hurt,
I'll teach you the art of how to disappear."

he said, "make sure you leave your loved ones safe at home
forget all you've been told or have ever known
close your eyes and fly away
break your cage of flesh and bone
become the stars and the light they've shown
open your head up and let the sky crash in."

"once you've done these things, my son,
your earthly toils will all be done
no longer will anyone see your face
with these few tricks you'll be outside
of all the things that made you hide away
up in outer space
and one last thing, son, if you can
be a help to this old man
kick the dirt into my grave so I can disappear without a trace."
Track Name: Hold On
On this cold night, in the moonlight
see the stars shining bright just like the first time I met you
and I'm making my way down this old highway
headed your way
and I'll be there soon, just hold on

and we're moving so fast under this sky made of glass
all the streets are a mirror reflecting light that won't last
and it's leading me down to the dark side of town
where you're no longer around, I hope I'll see you soon, I'll hold on

all these highway signs hold lines I've never read
sinsemilla and red wine can rearrange my head
out here on this old road, underneath the stars,
in this great wide open, we're sure to get what is ours
so just hold on
Track Name: Long Island
In my face, people tell me there's a distant trace
of a man caught in a maze
so many ways and things to go or chase
but all I want is you, yeah I do

in your arms, help to settle all my alarms
of my yesterdays, holding you
can't help but feel like we are two
hearts that beat the same, beat the same

oh my dear, I have left you with a falling tear
so many times because I always fear
love like ours might disappear
and leave me standing here, leave me here

Sugar Rae, that's what they call the girl who makes my days,
the only one who I go running to
when my world feels sad and blue
makes me wanna stay, wanna say
Track Name: Down and Out
I never asked for much of anything
fine down and out in my slum barrio
it's where I've gone to pass the time away
forget about the things I'm sorry for

it doesn't matter if you say my name
when you tell somebody 'bout a man you know
it doesn't matter if you cause me pain
I'll kill it all before I leave to go

it doesn't matter where I sleep at night
to me you'll always be right by my side
and honey you're just like the stars above
and I'm the moon surrounded by your love

late at night when I'm out here on my own
nothing but a picture hanging on the wall
and even though I see my smiling face
a picture never really tells it all
Track Name: This Heart
When I sleep, when I wake
when a new day breaks
when it rains, when it snows
when a cold wind blows
this heart still beats for you

if I never find the right chords
if I don't sing the right melody
if I lose my tongue, no words come through
this heart still beats for you
this heart still beats for you

if I'm rich, if I'm poor
if I couldn't ask for more
if I stand, if I fall
if I couldn't hear you call
this heart still beats for you

if I never find the right chords
if I don't sing the right melody
if I lose my tongue, no words come through
this heart still beats for you
this heart still beats for you
Track Name: Lost in Ramble
Sometimes life can be like the pictures on TV,
but without the volume knob and safety of the screen
to keep the crazy people in a box
where they belong to be
but in the end, you know, it's alright with me

'cause I can see the stars at night and the sun at day
ain't it strange how things can change and fade away

the diamonds in your ears hang like the teardrops in your eyes
the pearls around your neck show that you've got the world tied up
in a box that holds a beauty that the world has never known
but in the end, you know, you are a sinking stone

'cause I can see the stars at night and the sun at day
ain't it strange how things can change and fade away
I can see the clouds rising over head
leaves are green but will turn brown and soon be dead

blue skies all the time
you smile like you're mine
