Track Name: A Little Luck
Started out the day with the rain
Watching it crawl down my windowpane
I can’t help but wonder where I’ll be next year
And why I always end up here

If all I needed was a little luck
A handful of quarters and pickup truck
I’d already be outside your door
But Lord knows that ain’t gonna get me far
So I’ll stay here in this smoky bar
While I dream of all the places I would go
Oh I sure’d like to let you know

If I could I’d sleep all afternoon
I’ll never finish all I have to do
And these responsibilities are filling up my mind
But I’m still so far behind

If all I needed was a little luck
A handful of quarters and pickup truck
I’d already be outside your door
But Lord knows that ain’t gonna get me far
So I’ll stay here in this smoky bar
While I dream of all the places I would go
Oh I sure’d like to let you know.

I just need a break
Been here a thousand days
Circling the same mistake
If you were here you’d say it’s fine
But I’m running out of time to figure it all out
An empty glass is easier to down
So I came in and sat down in my favorite chair
‘Cause I just don’t care
I just don’t care

Oh if all I needed was a little luck
A handful of quarters and pickup truck
I’d already be outside your door
But Lord knows that ain’t gonna get me far
So I’ll stay here in this smoky bar
While I dream of all the places I would go
Oh I sure’d like to let you know

That if all I needed was a little luck
A handful of quarters and pickup truck
I’d already be outside your door
But Lord knows that ain’t gonna get me far
So I’ll stay here in this smoky bar
While I dream of all the places I would go
Oh I sure’d like to let you know
To let you know
Track Name: My Belle
When we first met well I just knew
I like to think you chose me too
Unusual
You were so small and beautiful

I promised when things were less hard
Days in the sun and a backyard
Time with the birds
Now I’m more careful with my words

Can’t make right what I did wrong
How can I if you are gone?
I’m sorry

I’ve got the colors here to keep me well
You’re all aglow and caramel, my belle
I know you’re safe
I know you’re safe
With all the new friends you have made
Track Name: Rise Up Singing
I’m standing
At the edge of the water
With everything I fought for
On changing ground
And I’ll say it loud
And lay it down
The wants and the weeds
What I never needed around

Gather up the years and break off the beginning
Sometimes I don’t even know what I was thinking
One of these days I’ll rise up singing, whoa

If I saw
In a cloudy reflection
The impossible position
The hungry name
And angry rain
It’s all the same
‘Cause there’s another side
And I would still ride the train

Gather up the years and break off the beginning
Sometimes I don’t even know what I was thinking
One of these days I’ll rise up singing, whoa

See
I put it all together
The things that matter
The things that don’t
If I hadn’t met you
I wouldn’t have known
But it ain’t gonna stop
How far apart we will grow

And what once was a hill is now a mountain that I’ve been climbing
Every step is steeper and it feels like it’s not worth trying
I’m finding the ways to keep on fighting

So gather up the years and break off the beginning
It’ll still bring you here and you won’t know what you were thinking
One of these days we’ll rise up singing
And the whole world will hear it ringing

I’m standing
At the edge of the water
Track Name: I Swear
It’s my hands
And your eyes
A sweet caress
A loving sigh

The weight of time
Will wash away
In a dark
Ocean cave

And we will not be alone
We will not be alone
We will not be alone
I swear

Peaceful surrender
Nothing but this
What fortune gave us
Such a perfect gift?

And we will not be alone
We will not be alone
We will not be alone
I swear

Memories
I wouldn’t trade
For anything
But one more day

And we will not be alone
We will not be alone
We will not be alone
I swear
I swear
I swear
Track Name: When I Let You Lay Me Down
I saw you reach for the glass vase
I keep on a shelf where it stays safe
Open the window with all that I’ve ever known
There in your hands
You let it fall and crash all over the ground
When I let you lay me down

And just like these pieces of broke bone
I’ll bury this till it’s all gone
I won’t remember how easy it was for me
To give you my pride
And you let it fall and crash all over the ground
When I let you lay me down

In the sober light
Of the morning sun
You finally won

It hit me so hard the cold truth
How much it hurts when I think of you
And what I have done
And now all that I can say is I’d like you to leave
‘Cause you let it fall and I watched it all
Crash all over the ground
When I let you lay me down
When I let you lay me down
Track Name: Safe
Sometimes to calm the storm inside my head
I dream I’m falling down into the bed
Some days go by and I can’t even smile
I hope you’ll understand
Some nights I feel the weight of the world
and I, I can’t stop it

Oh take me away from here
I’ll give you all my love my love
I have to go it’s more than I can bear
My love my love, oh

I’ll never be able to tell you everything
You’re only one person I won’t always let you in
You’re right it’s not fair, it’s not fair at all
To watch me fight alone
I won’t be there the next time you call
Oh I, I won’t make it

And it’ll take so much faith
When I forget that I am safe

I know that it scares you when I am not okay
This won’t be the last time that you see me this way
I’ve got things to say just takes me awhile
But tonight I’m gonna try
And if you fall asleep with your arms around me
Oh I, I won’t mind it

Oh take me away from here
I’ll give you all my love my love
I have to go it’s more than I can bear
My love my love oh
Track Name: Love Me Crazy
Love me crazy
Love me wild
Been feeling lately
I’m missing something to put out this fire
And I just can’t go on without your love
No I just can’t go on without your love

Love me crazy
Love me blind
You wanna tease me
You’re gonna make me go out of my mind
And all these things I do maybe it’s you
Yeah all these things I do oh it’s you

I’m losing I’m losing my traction
I need my favorite distraction
Why do honey you leave me
Crying, crying, crying at night?

Love me crazy
Love me true
You got me baby
Tell me that you want it too
And I will let you in if you come by
If I don’t shed this skin I’m gonna die
Track Name: For You
Pure atmosphere
So much beauty here
The trees and the light, the light is true
It shines for you
For you for you

Said it all feels wrong
Should have told me all along
Sometimes I walk through water too
I’m here for you
For you for you

Shadows and haze
Cleared at the dawn
I can’t hold onto what I see now

You’ll always have this place
You lift up your face
Take what the world, the world can do
For you for you
For you for you
For you for you
For you oh for you
