Track Name: Love More Than Anything
Love More Than Anything

Three a.m.- driving home alone
Few more hours and you will be gone
Don't want to sleep, sleep only keeps me from dreaming
When I'm not with you
But till the time is right what more can I do

And even though, maybe you don't know me so well
But you managed to change everything
I can't wait to see you again
I want your love, I want your love more than anything

Sun comes up, pushing back the night
Ain't it true, the dark holds hands with the light
And all the things that had to fall apart to bring together
Something that's real
Something that's better

And even though, maybe you don't know me so well
But you managed to change everything
I can't wait to see you again
I want your love, I want your love more than anything

And I don't need a fortune teller to tell me what kind of weather the future brings
If it's truly meant to be, your heart will lead you here to me, and mine will lead to you
I know it's true
I want your love more than anything

And even though, maybe you don't know me so well
But you managed to change everything
I can't wait to see you again
I want your love, I want your love more than anything
Track Name: Since You Went Away
Since You Went Away

Strange Magic when you looked in my eyes
The world disappeared like you had me hypnotized
Since you went away, since you went away all I need is you here
Cause no one else can do, no one else can do what you do to me dear

Chorus-
I tried to forget you, pretend I never met you, pretend to be so strong
Won't you come back to me, darlin won't you free me, your spell it lasts so long
I'm just waiting now for you to come and turn me on

I had been so guarded, brokenhearted from the one before
So effortlessly you soothed and disarmed me
Now everywhere I look, everywhere I look all I see is you
My head tries to resist, but my heart it knows, my heart it knows what's true

Chorus-
I tried to forget you, pretend I never met you, pretend to be so strong
Won't you come back to me, darlin won't you free me, your spell it lasts so long
I'm just waiting now for you to come and turn me on
Track Name: Canyons
Canyons

There's a canyon of space between
What you're saying & what you mean
The truth I would steal it, 'cause you won't reveal it
& I'm really feelin' it now
Let me re-frame the picture here
All I have is love for you dear
I'm not here to judge you or stand up above you
I just need to know what you want

How much more can I take, should I bend 'til I break
This is killin' me
It just isn't fair, we're not here, we're not there
So won't you tell me
Where do you want to be

Some scars take so long to heal
Easier to try not to feel
you're pushin' so hard won't you let down your guard
Aren't you tired of bein' alone?

But if you need some time away
Don't deny it and try to stay
You've only been givin' me half anyway
Now I just need to know what you want

How much more can I take, should I bend 'til I break
This is killin' me
It just isn't fair, we're not here, we're not there
So won't you tell me
Where do you wanna be

Tell me now
Tell me now
Tell me now
Tell me now
Should I go home, or should I stay here tonight?

How much more can I take, should I bend 'til I break
This is killin' me
It just isn't fair, we're not here, we're not there
So won't you tell me
Where do you wanna be
Track Name: You do You
You do You

A dancer stumblin, a wise man wonderin, a poet fumblin, I'm in the dark again
Trying to feel my way back to the light

You're poison seeping in, I'm filled with doubt again
Is that what you meant to do- when you dropped a cent or two
Like it's your job to tell me what's up

I made the mistake before of asking you what you thought too, but I was wrong

Don't tell me what to do
I'll do me, and you do you
Don't tell me what to do
Just cause you mean it don't make it true for me

You've got it figured out, you've turned it inside out, and deconstructed it down to little bits
Analyzed and turned this all to shit

You've reconnected the dots for me, the picture looks differently
I locked the door but forgot that you've got a key
It's boomeranged and smacked me in the head

I made the mistake before of asking you what you thought too, but I was wrong

Don't tell me what to do
I'll do me, and you do you
Don't tell me what to do
Just cause you mean it don't make it true for me
Track Name: Smoke Signals
His suitcase in hand
His journey was planned
And nothing would bend before I came along

I said I love outer space
But I'll miss your face
Guess I'll watch you trace your name across the sun

You don't know what it's like loving someone who ain't never around
No you don't know what it's like
Don't know if you're ever comin down

Chorus-
Astronaut you don't know how close you got
But now your somewhere out there somewhere
Out there somewhere
Send smoke signals to me
Cause that's how you like it

It's scary up close
Cause who really knows
If our love would grow
Or would it simply fade away

And what if it's true
That the fantasy
Is better than the reality would even be


But you don't know what it's like loving someone who ain't never around
No you don't know what it's like
Don't know if you're ever comin down

Chorus-
Astronaut you don't know how close you got
But now your somewhere out there somewhere
Out there somewhere
Send smoke signals to me
Photographs of what you see
Do you think it's right
Leaving me to sleep alone every night

Astronaut you don't know how close you got
You don't know how close you got

Chorus-
But now your somewhere out there somewhere
Out there somewhere
Track Name: Shes Not There
Well no one told me about her
The way she lied
No one told me about her
How many people cried

But it's too late to say you're sorry
How would I know
Why should I care
Please don't bother trying to find her
She's not there

Chorus-
Let me tell you about the way she looked
The way she acted
The color of her hair
Her voice was soft and cool
Her eyes were clear and bright
But she's not there

No one told me about her
What could I do
No one told me about her
But they all knew

But it's too late to say you're sorry
How would I know
Why should I care
Please don't bother trying to find her
She's not there

Chorus-
Let me tell you about the way she looked
The way she acted
The color of her hair
Her voice was soft and cool
Her eyes were clear and bright
But she's not there
Track Name: Do it all Again
Carry me home
Don't let me sleep alone
There's plenty of room in my bed

I had a dream about your company
And it's too good to stay in my head

Chorus-
Call when you're on your way home
I ain't asking where you've been
Whatever you do don't drop my name
I want to do it all again- soon

Take me out
Or we could just stay in
God it feels good when you're here
I don't feel bad
Now let me tell you again
I love it when you're near

Chorus-
Call when you're on your way home
I ain't asking where you've been
Whatever you do don't drop my name
I want to do it all again- soon

Been out in the rain
Now won't you just come in
Take off your coat and your hat
I kept a place for you
Let's do what you want to
And if the morning never comes
I'd be all right with that

Carry me home
Don't let me sleep alone
There's plenty of room in my bed

I had a dream about your company
And it's too good to stay in my head

Chorus-
Call when you're on your way home
I ain't asking where you've been
Whatever you do don't drop my name
I want to do it all again- soon

Take me out
Or we could just stay in
God it feels good when you're here
I told you once
But let me tell you again
I love it when you're near

Chorus-
Call when you're on your way home
I ain't asking where you've been
Whatever you do don't drop my name
I want to do it all again- soon
Track Name: What You Don't Know
Smoke-filled room, champagne on ice
You look good 'till I look twice
Cherry-red lips, and hips that swing
You make a blind boy see, a mute man speak

Momma done told me long ago,
"Don't assume what you don't know"
A beggar might sell what a rich man stole
"Don't assume what you don't know"

All you given to me, is what you want to be
Oh, oh, oh
Think you're taking me home, think you're buying the show
Oh, oh, oh
"Don't assume what you don't know"

Sittin' there smug like you figured it out
Your momma don't know what I'm about
See, you can't buy me with another gin
It takes more than a drink to let you in

Momma done told me long ago,
"Don't assume what you don't know"
Beggar might sell what a rich man stole
"Don't assume what you don't know"

All you givin to me is what you want me to be
Oh, oh, oh
Think I'm taking you home, think I'm buying the show
Oh, oh, oh
"Don't assume what you don't know"
Track Name: Crack or Christ
Choose your vice, crack or christ
Everybody needs something
To hold on to, on this spinning wheel
Save my life, if you can
If I fall down won't you give me a hand?
I need something that's real

Won't you save me?
Save me?

Choose your vice, crack or christ
Everybody needs something
To get to the line, first you gotta get to the door
Track Name: Shelter
No matter where you go I will wait for you
Be your safe place to come when you don't know what to do
And when your fire's low
You know I know
You know I know
Just leave it all behind
It's so cold outside
Won't you rest here in my arms

Chorus-
I'll be your shelter from the storm
I'll be your shelter from the storm
The haunted wind might howl
The rain might pound outside your door but
I'll be your shelter from the storm

Their voices crowding in like clouds around your head
So hard to be who you are when they want you to be just like them
And how they push and pull
They always will
They always will
Just leave it all behind
It's so cold outside
Won't you rest here in my arms

Chorus-
I'll be your shelter from the storm
I'll be your shelter from the storm
The haunted wind might howl
The rain might pound outside your door but
I'll be your shelter from the storm
Track Name: Whats Good For You
And when I saw her again
I knew that something had changed
And when we started to talk
The party just seemed to fade
Said something seems new
She said, It's crazy what you can get used to
But what you're used to might not be
What's good for you

What's good for you
Once you find out
You can't go back
To what you knew

He runs to catch his train
He sits down and he sees
Her staring out at the rain
He asks if she knows the way
To get to Josie's on 8th
He's got to meet someone there
And maybe she'd like to come

And once they started to talk
Everyone else seemed to fade

That's when he knew
She's nothing like
Anything he's used to

Chorus-
What's good for you?
Once you find out
You can't go back
To what you knew

And when the city seems cold
And your reflection looks strange
Your hands have nothing to hold
Maybe it's time to change
Start something new
Ain't it crazy what you can get used to
But what you're used to might not be

Chorus-
What's good for you?
Once you find out
You can't go back
To what you knew
