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

My Belle 03:38
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

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

I Swear 03:14
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

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

Safe 04:42
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

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

For You 03:33
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
