Dove 03:08
Now you know that you were on the dead-on right track You had to go through timespace and still try and make it back Now you know now Now you know now better You got a dove With a good, good set of wings You got a dove No matter where she flies she sings Now you know now Now you know now better You got a dove who knows where home is at And she flies returning to you on her path Now you know now Now you know now better See her fly Fly right to your side Doves always fly home Doves always fly home

She’s got a boyfriend He does the mowing And she ain’t going Out no more We were peas and carrots We were thick as thieves We’d go out drinking till a quarter to three Now she got something better than me She got a boyfriend We were bat-shit crazy We were hell on wheels We’d go out dancing in six-inch heels Now she’s cooking all his meals She got a boyfriend She’s got a boyfriend He does the mowing And she ain’t going Out no more We would laugh like loonies We would crack and sing We’d never ever ever let anything Come between us and then, zing She got a boyfriend

Sometimes I get to wondering How it almost might have been If I’d just listened to my own heart Instead of listening to them So I went ahead and put my boat in the river It was a bright and a sunny day So many times I wanted to stop on the side But the current kept me away You can walk away and leave your regrets just standing there Or you can head off on your own But like an old dog lost miles away You’re always gonna find your way back home And all those stories in those ancient books Not supposed to question what they say But that hand that pulls you close That’s gonna be the same hand that’ll push you away So I stand in line and buy my ticket And the irony it just screams at me Tonight we’ll go and lose ourselves In somebody else’s dream

Thought you were gone You came back I thought I caught the thought you thought you sent me You came back And now you’re here In the universe inside I tried to walk on I held back I thought I’d lost the thought you thought you sent me You came back And now you’re here In the universe inside Give it, did you get it Love it, did you let it be Give it, did you get it Love it, did you let it be

Dark Hollow 04:07
Jason Krebs was a man who cared The way he walked had a lot to say He lived a life of hurt that the years don’t show He had a cast iron heart and a soul for sale Through a haze of smoke and a bottle of gin He saw the lips of salvation speaking to him He heard a voice that made him wanna cry Such a sweet soul not afraid to die There’s a place up on that hillside Where the children run and the widow cries Jason loved it on that higher ground But the hands of the dark hollow Kept pulling him down He was born on the mountain on the county line Grew a little weed and made a little shine No man ever crossed him ‘cus no one dared He looked wild and crazy whenever he stared But those secrets that he kept no one needs to know When it’s so damn hot and the wind won’t blow When the flames burned out nothing left to show But the webs he weaved and the seed he sowed There’s a place up on that hillside Where the children run and the widow cries Jason loved it on that higher ground But the hands of the dark hollow Kept pulling him down There’s a place up on that hillside Where the children run and the widow cries Jason ’s resting higher ground “Cus the hands of the dark hollow Finally brought him down

I Am Here 02:13
I am here It’s now, what am I supposed to do I don’t know The world around me I can’t see the things inside of me What is life, what is love Is it ever going to come I don’t know About tomorrow But I’ve had my pain and sorrow To give up would be wrong To hold on would be strong I don’t wanna give it up I don’t wanna start again I am here It is now What am I supposed to do What is life Where is love Is it ever going to come

Tattoo 02:30
Bell-bottoms and weed And another girls mother holds your hand Her black eyeliner hides the truth You shouldn’t be here but you are who Who you were before you saw the tattoo Don’t be afraid, it was always gonna happen to you You were always going to lose this part of you The smiles are shards of glass The smile that you should trust the most Will be the one who steals your shoes And leaves you with a lacy bruise She knows what’s behind the tattoo Don’t be afraid, it was always gonna happen to you You were always going to lose this part of you She should’ve covered your eyes It could've happened anytime She will laugh and watch you cry This is always gonna be a part a part of you One day you won’t feel the purple and the blue

Whiskey’s on the table and the bible’s by the bed There’s a lost and drunken Sunday for every verse you never read Open that old suitcase and you check it one more time Still got that old thirty-eight, it gives you a piece of mind Leave the keys there on the table, you ain’t coming back this time Your train is leaving round that bend Down in Chattanooga, it was the second time around Still hunting that same old ghost, the one you never found And your memories are fading just as fast as that money that you stole You can fit back all the pieces but that’ll never make you whole Well, she married a wealthy rancher and lives in a million-dollar home Her train, it came around that bend Woke up to the evening news and you heard just what they said A dealer found dead in Memphis with a gunshot to his head And you never though they’d miss him so you left him there for dead Left those thirty kilos and took all that cash instead Now you’re flying high but you’re laying low til the manhunt finally ends You train’s about to come around that bend The men came up from Texas seeking vengeance for their friend They found you in the parking lot of the Mountain Valley Inn And they called their boss, “Ell Perro”, ‘cus he can track them every time Now your body’s stuffed inside a box filled with orange peel and lime Way back in a boxcar rolling down the line Your train is leaving round that bend You know your train is leaving round that bend

Chicago 03:07
Lord take him home to Chicago I know that’s where he’d wanna be He sail out on Crystal Lake And have Mama and Daddy So glad to see him Put him on a train in the morning Bound for Des Plaines, Illinois Make sure he’s got his pocketknife, Handkerchief, folding money And have Mama and Daddy So glad to see him They’ll run out to meet him They’ll be so glad to see him Fellas on the train they be singing A song from when he was a boy: What do we do with a drunken sailor What do we do with a drunken sailor What do we do with a drunken sailor Early in the morning

Why should I dream Why should I think about tomorrow As though extraordinary things ever happen Why should I dream Why should I wonder about the future Because make-believing’s just pretend Why should I dream of something silly Like that I could really fly Why should I dream It not a sensible thing It’s just imagination in my mind Why should I dream Of what’s impossible to see What could I ever hope to find Why should I dream of something silly Like that I could really fly How would I know, how would I show The colors of the rainbow How could I

Stay Close 02:12
I felt the song pierce you like an arrow And I felt the sunlight touch your skin I don’t know about the things you know I just know the water we’re in Is cold and shallow Holding all I know to try to Keep you warm And I’d be willing and able Spilling all I know to try to Keep your cool I heard the song coming from out my window And I heard the sirens and the sin I don’t know about the things you know about I only just the water we’re in Is cold and shallow Holding all I know to try to Keep you warm And I’d be willing and able Spilling all I know to try to Keep your cool Stay close Stay close I’d be cold and shallow Holding all I know to try to Keep you warm I’d be willing and able Spilling all I know to try to Keep your cool
