Track Name: Passing By
PASSING BY

It’s midnight on the motorcycle
And I don’t know if we’ll ever get through this
But I’m willing to try and I
Hear thats all there ever is

Mulling over violent dreams
Dark ain’t what it always seems
But I don’t want anything like
I want you to know me

I know this so well
Footsteps in my mind
Always coming closer
Always passing by

Saturday on the greyhound
Sunlight is coming down
You are right beside me
I am somewhere else

People we been before
Dancing on the tennis courts
Blinded by the stars
Seeing only what we’re looking for

I know this so well
Footsteps in my mind
Always coming closer
Always passing by

I am in the bedroom doorway
Crying about my love for you
You are trying to leave saying this is the last time
We are through

I know this so well
Footsteps in my mind
Always coming closer
Always passing by

I still remember you talking through the window
Its just so hard to let go
I still remember you smoking through the window
It’s just so hard to let go

I know this so well
Footsteps in my mind
Always coming closer
Always passing by

BridgeI still remember you talking through the window
Its just so hard to let go
I still remember you smoking through the window
It’s just so hard to let go
Track Name: Curse To Carry On
CURSE TO CARRY ON

could be god or fate of man
but you’re the one that held my hand
after seven years of dirt
you washed me clean, oh sam
heard it said awhile ago
that all mistakes can turn to gold
but you’d rather carry yours as stone
if you ever asked me what i wanted
i would tell you i want to be strong
but my heart is heavy with salvation
and it seems a curse to carry on
wish i were in some dark valley
where the sun don’t ever shine
than pretend to love another
when you should be mine
but my mind is wide and empty
my cold heart is dark and grieved
there’s no kinda love i could achieve
Track Name: Darling Come Home
DARLING COME HOME

Well I met my baby down by the railroad
She held me close, she carried my load
Her eyes were bright, like the morning sunlight
And I loved her true all through the night

Well my baby left me down by the river
Now I’m drinking warm whiskeys, one after the other
I’m soaking my head, just trying to forget her
Cause nothing's been right since she’s been gone

Now I fear I’m drowning, oh my sister oh my brother
Won’t you throw me a line tonight
Cause I know I’ll never, oh I’ll never love another
Oh my darling won’t you come home tonight

Well I met my baby down by the railroad
She held me close, she carried my load
Her eyes were bright, like the morning sunlight
And I loved her true all through the night

Now I fear I’m drowning, oh my sister oh my brother
Won’t you throw me a line tonight
Cause I know I’ll never, oh I’ll never love another
Oh my darling won’t you come home

Oh my darling won’t you come home
Oh my darling won’t you come home
Tonight
Track Name: Elsewhere
ELSEWHERE

I've got two hands on steering
Both eyes on the road
My mind is elsewhere
And the going is slow

I thought that I could love you
Thought that I could stay
But my heart is elsewhere
And I don't know what to say

I wish I could tell you different
But I'd be telling you wrong
My heart it hardens
With each "no" I get strong

I thought that I could love you
I thought that I could stay
But my heart is elsewhere
And I don't know what to say

Two feet in the water
Both hands in the air
I'm just trying to let go
Of what I'm doing there

I thought that I could love you
I I thought that I could stay
But my heart is elsewhere
And I don't know what to say

And i can feel it starting
The start of feeling new
I don't know their name yet
But they drink coffee too

I thought that I could love you
I thought that I could stay
But my heart is elsewhere
Farther every day

I thought that I could love you
I thought that I could stay
Track Name: What's In The Whiskey
WHAT'S IN THE WHISKEY

Baby’s got a pair of shiny black shoes
Baby’s got a pair of shiny black shoes
Well I know what’s in the whiskey, and I know what’s in the rye
And if you try to flip me, I’ma see it in your eye

Well I never seen a sweeter gal than you
No, I never seen a sweeter gal it’s true
Well I know what’s in the whiskey, and I know what’s in the rye
And if you ‘aint coming with me, then I’ll just sit down and cry
That train’s a’comin, boy it’s comin in fast
You hear that train, oh it’s comin in fast
Well I know it’s kinda risky to be running on the fly
It’s just water in the whiskey, and arsenic in the rye

Well I know what’s in the whisky, and I know what’s in the rye
If you don’t see me tomorrow, then you know they got their guy
Goodnight, goodnight, goodnight
Track Name: Ready
READY

lay me down sweet jesus
by the rock n roll band
lay me down sweet jesus
i’ve done bout all that i can
i found myself inside a bottle
but now that bottle’s running dry
so lay me down sweet jesus
i’m about ready to die
i wanna see my mother mary
and a wise man too
cause i been feelin so lonely
i haven’t known what to do
i wanna see my brother peter
meet all the friends that he’s made
so lay me down sweet jesus
in my deep and lonely grave
i used to live for that old music
that sang of love and barley wine
but now it’s soundin kinda useless
think i been wastin all my time
i feel my eyelids gettin heavy
and the lights are dimmin low
so lay me down sweet jesus
i’m about ready to go
Track Name: Do Right
DO RIGHT

It’s been over before again and again,
I’m always here waiting to be just your friend
You walk around like you own this town
I can’t find any solid ground

Do right by you
(Won’t you) do right by me
(I want to) Do right by you
(Won’t you) Do right by me

Big black crow sit up in his tree
Sees right through me to the places I can’t reach
Would have liked to show you what he sees
But he’s not coming down from his perch in the trees

Do right by you
(Won’t you) do right by me
(I want to) Do right by you
(Won’t you) Do right by me

Honey you and me
I think we tried everything ‘cept leaving it be
There’s a reason for everything
There’s a reason and I’m trying to see how to

Do right by you
(Won’t you) do right by me
(I want to) Do right by you
(Won’t you) Do right by me
