Your love, is mile long and canyon wide What I add and cant divide What I’m needing when I cry But you’re gone long gone My heart is thrown away and filled with doubt I can’t find my own way out I could use you here right now And the world just spins around I want to turn back She’s in my veins And I’ve got one chance to reach you now Lay my heart on the line watch it swell up and turn around To see it all come crashing down If I know anything I know that I can’t let her go Your words, they hide the weight inside your eyes Hide the hurt you feel inside I can see it every time And “I don’t know” is all you say anymore Every trip down throws me back to where I cannot survive With her not around

Carolina 04:05
A Suitcase, alone, I pack my world up Crying on a train from Alabama I realized the ghost of us came undone Everything I tried to say never came out And it’s a hard way to lead this life You can only pray to god that you’ll survive Cos there ain’t another way of going back You know you think about her now Chorus But if I leave you tonight, will it all seem right? Or will if all come alive when the war calms down? Beneath these city lights, we change, you and I Just say you love me, I love you Carolina In an automatic world we fake emotions And I tried to mend the things that we left broken If I could find the words to fill the holes I stepped in Than at least you’d know I’m trying But if you leave me tonight, will it all seem right? Or will it all come alive. When the walls fall down? Beneath these city lights, has it all been a lie? Just say you love me, I love you Carolina Beneath this sinking sky, when the vultures arrive And if I’m still alive, when the sun goes down To see your pretty eyes, would they open wide? And say you love me? I love you Carolina

Fix Me Up 04:21
Heaven, I tell you I’ve heard about it But I’ve been here so long I’ll never find it Freedom, is something I’ve never had And these chains you left me know are sure to bind me Don’t tell me its wrong to hurt Cos I’ve been hurt before Don’t tell me its wrong to say goodbye Just take my hand And fix me now A woman, is something I want to find With her eyes that sparkle like a band of gold And she’ll know, she’s something I could never live without And she’ll save me from this worn and winding road Pain, can tell you “you need someone” To make you strong and wise A calm, to settle the wildest storm And take my hand and hold it tight

Even Now 03:01
I see the highway lines I hear the warning signs It’s a long way down even now I never could bend steel Or change anything not real Into something good, but I can fail Oh feet don’t fail me now As long as I can lean on something right If I could leave a light on Days would be all right It’ll all be erased, on the morning when she comes I’ve been alone There have been things I’ve been leaving out Maybe things that I can’t leave alone even now So here’s where the letters end Just tell me it’s all pretend When your friends find love and you don’t You see all the colors bleed to black And you’re finally keeping track Of what went wrong
5.
Like A Rose 03:48
When the bus comes down I'll be leaving you now There's a note I left I hope you read it out loud Cos It's not your fault That I’ve got to get back And I can't go on And I tried to unpack Don't cry Faith like a rose You can revive Pictures and words Like the poems that I'd misspell now Cos it's alright it's alright Loves a painted shrine On a bedroom wall And we're the part that shines But we're bound to wash off It's where the bullets fly And you're left for dead When the well runs dry Life's a book you read Don't cry Face like a rose You can rewind I'm here when you go And you don't have to save me now Cos it's alright It's alright

Lights 04:37
You were Young, Sweeping flowers In your favorite heels, you'd spin like a ferris wheel And your heart beat to balance All your friends had stole, drowning in alcohol And the cops found you laying by the truck And the doctors say you're never waking up But I still feel you like a honeymoon of lights Every way it aches I'm finding you were right And I can hear you like a ghost when you're around Where do we run to now to figure it out? Always saw you having babies See them growing old, playing in backyards And I can hear your mother praying In the other room, praying for me and you I could never find the words to make it right All the things I never said still keep me up at night And it gets cold, fighting back the storms Tearing out my soul, like a long goodbye When the words don't make it out And apart from all this doubt I know you're home
7.
There’s a long black road I travel every night It’s a conversation I have to have It’s her ocean blue eyes and the way that she smiles And it tangles my insides like webs Trying to find peace as November leafs fall down I steady my soul and reach for the stars that shine me out So don’t let me fall asleep Don’t let me I’m on my knees Don’t let me realize That I’ve been a fool lying in bed That I’ve been mistaken I misread Just let it be real I send flowers, but never sign my name And I could swear “I’m Alive” when I’m inside a dream Where she can color my skies from grey And she can burn like a fire, that’s gone inside of me Trying to find peace in water so deep I drown Her grace fills my soul like sand I can’t hold its slipping out Cos I could find her in a crowd of never ending faces She’s the moment all my emptiness, my pain erases Like a silence on my fears, and I keep holding back the tears When I wake up, to find that everything just stays the same
8.
March is burning down 27 years and the tears are creeping out I’d melt outside your door If I knew who you were Honey I’m a lost cause When you can’t find your prize it’s complicated All dressed up like lights without parades Oh I’m so shook up Let me breathe and get me out Of this broken circus I’m in All your friends are moving like the highway trucks You’re on the plow praying for some good luck And time won’t seem to ring the bell And you’re cold n’ tired Worn out like a baseball mitt When you’re up on this wire is hard to balance All you want is time and it’s hard to save And it’s a long way down You’ll get back home It’s a long way down Man I’m so shook up Set me free and get me out Of this broken circus I’m in
9.
White walls, hospital bed I feel numb, hold my hand Where does the time go? Where does the time go? Where does the time go anyhow? Cos I still smell the air The flowers in her hair Nights in Lakeview park And the sound of beating hearts But where does the time go? Where does the time go? Where does the time go anyhow? And so I race, against the clock That’s ticking in my veins I wait for something more And so I pray, for this to stop Lord tell me I’m ok If I’m not, lead me on But tell me where does the time go? Where does the time go? Where does the time go anyhow?
10.
Draw me a map And I will lay down like you wanted This house and hall still haunts...me I'm the rain that floods the cracks You're never wrong And I've got swollen eyes to show it Grace but you'd never know it Cos it's pain when you react And I just had to come back one last time to see it. Settle one more round to choke this sound that I ain't something pretty Maybe you can't change the broken bones that line your soul with pity But maybe this time you'll look harder at the facts, cause it's a long way back This ain't that town Cos I see cleaner streets to walk on My old high school's long gone Left it burning to the ground And I won’t let my little girl Grow up the ways I swore I'd change These faded main street signs remind me nothing stays the same Maybe Time can teach you love and Maybe time can teach you faith Maybe this time you'll look harder at the facts Cos it’s a long way back

Old House 04:28
So take me home tonight Tell me I’m all right Tell me this picture frames got you now You were my hand’s glove How I learned how to love Tell me I ain’t got it all figured out Farwell my old house Farewell my old life Tell me I’m simpler Alone without you now So long my sad eyes Don’t say its goodbye Guide when I can’t see I won’t let you down Here lies all my friends I’ve known All my dreams just scatter in the air Farwell my old house Farewell my old life Tell me I’m simpler I know I am now Lord let this hurt pass Cos I don’t know how to act And it feels like I’m already gone from you know So long now

Space 04:17
If love is lucky help my hands push Because my life lives on under this big old rock I’ve been broken ever since the car crash And I never had someone to call my own We used to sing in chapels in the daylight We used to laugh like kids under the stars So how do I know right now if heaven sent you down? How do I go about to make it all right now? When all the reasons fight the words And all I want to do is make it right But I need space now You said you were wrong, but I waited for your phone calls And all the notes I kept like clocks that keep the time we lost And I made decisions, prayed with all my heart But I could never find a story line that we were both on We used to sing in chapels in the daylight We used to laugh at pictures in the halls And my mind says it’s all gone, but my mind keeps dragging you on So how do I know right now if heaven sent you down? How do I go about to make it all right now? When all the reasons fight the words And all we want to do is make it right But I need Space Now
