Track Name: Listen
Listen to what I've got to say
good times are gonna come one day
if you ever feel like you're falling down
keep yourself up till' I come around

Blue skies and a bottle of wine to level out
listen, and take your time and you might figure it out

I'm not your mother no I'm just a friend
to keep you from leaving in the end
I can't pretend that you'll ever know
I can only hope that you'll take it slow

Blue skies and a bottle of wine to level out
listen, and take your time and you might figure it out

I've got a heart attack waiting in my pocket for you
it don't say much but it knows what to do
I never realized that you already knew what to do
yeah you made me look like a fool
Track Name: You Don't Know My Name
I started west and left the new world behind
with not but innocence and conflict in my mind
still just children unfamiliar with desire
we struck our matches and laid down in the fire

They came looking to put the chains on me
cut my hands away and set me free
always said if you need me, call my name
I've got no one left but myself to blame

You don't know my name anymore

They cut me loose when I had paid my toll
turn my insides out and remove my soul
I'm getting it back if it takes forever and a day
sometimes I wonder if things are better off this way

You don't know my name anymore

And I've got nothing left inside
its like this life was never mine
it feels like I'm in a dream
oh yes it feels just like a dream
I asked you to trust in me
certain one day you'd see
nothing in this world is real except the things you don't believe
I know you don't believe in me anymore
Track Name: Priscilla Blvd
Oh my eyes are tired
the streetlights cut into me
but a weary man can't sleep
not until you're next to me
the tunnel light grows brighter
the leaves begin to blow away
now my heart can show me the way
to Priscilla Blvd

Oh every minute feels like sixty
no lonesome nights my eyes so misty
can't wait to hold you in my arms so gently
oh can't you see what you're doing to me?

Well i stopped by that old hillside
the on where you and I would lie
but the grass was far to high
looking up it covered the sky
well winter finally approaches
the closest thing to unity
dead leaves are my closest friends
and your dying memory

Oh every minute feels like sixty
no lonesome nights my eyes so misty
no one to hold me, the bottle's empty
oh can't you see what you've done to me?

well last night, I went for a walk
just trying to get you off my mind
it didn't work, oh no
I see you every time I close my eyes
I wish I were made of gold
I could be your winning' prize
now its time for me to go
i hope to see you on the other side

Oh every minute feels like sixty
no lonesome nights my eyes so misty
no one to hold me, the bottle's empty
oh can't you see what you've done to me?
Track Name: Sea Shanty
There's a powerful wind a'blowin
there's a storm brewing up off our shores
and the sail's set too high are the ones that blow over
and so I lower myself to the floor
and I sail with my crew made of iron
on a ship we built out of wood
we worked hard for every last meal
like any man worth his mettle should

and I'm coming home
so set your eyes for the sun
cause when the storm blows over it's light will shine through
cause I'm coming home to you

I've got a year's worth of stories to tell you
tales of late nights and postcard scenery
in spite of weeks of adventures, I still dream of you
working hard, and praying for me
Track Name: Two-Way Broken Hearted Street
It's a two-way broken hearted street that we both live on
and when it started I just wanted to have a home
I couldn't help it like the rain that falls on me every day
and every story has its final page
and without you, I feel like I've lost my place
all I wanted was a familiar taste so I pray everyday

I pray everyday

Well there are mountains you and I can't climb
and shadows where the thieves can hide
and every brick in your house looks the same
and when you close your eyes they blow away

They blow away every day

You look so sad in your wedding gown
all the photos on the ground
don't look for me I don't wanna be found
your diamond rings will weigh you down
