Track Name: Everybody Tells Me
Everybody Tells Me

Passin’ the love along, give it to me before it’s gone
I don’t know where it goes, but when you find it let me know

There was knock I heard, there was a beauty in my shirt
Given the circumstance, there was no way to stand a chance

Livin’ outside the lines, only committed to my crimes
Livin’ inside this shell, where everybody tells me

Oh whoa Oh Oh Oh,
Oh whoa oh oh oh oh oh

Oh whoa Oh Oh Oh,
Oh whoa oh oh oh oh oh

Stuck in this constant state, of an illusion by fate
If there’s a master plan, call me I’m a slave who’s learned to dance

Livin’ outside the lines, only committed to my crimes
Livin’ inside this shell, where everybody tells me

Oh whoa oh oh oh,
Oh whoa oh oh oh oh oh

Oh whoa Oh Oh Oh,
Oh whoa oh oh oh oh oh

We’re swinging in the cemetery trees, Breathin’ in this cemetery breeze
Surrounded by the names of people come and gone away, but we still get to play

Livin’ outside the lines, only committed to my crime
Livin’ inside this shell, where everybody yells

Oh whoa oh oh oh,
Oh whoa oh oh oh oh oh

Oh whoa Oh Oh Oh,
Oh whoa oh oh oh oh oh

Oh whoa oh oh oh
Oh whoa oh oh oh
Oh whoa oh oh oh
Oh whoa oh oh oh oh oh
Track Name: A Little More
A Little More


Golden morning, how much do I owe,
Borrowed time is windin’ down
No new answers, the window start to glow
The same old pain still hangin’ around (around around…)

The more I take, the more it takes control
Every little battle keeps chippin’ away at the war
The more I say, the more I can’t say no
but nobody gives me what nobody gave me before
So I take a little more, oh oh
Little More, oh oh


Best Intentions, swallowed up by fear,
I Keep that circus to myself now
It’s too quiet, now it’s all I hear
The same old song with no story to tell (it helps it never helps me)

The more I take, the more it takes control
Every little battle keeps chippin’ away at the war
The more I say, the more I can’t say no
but nobody gives me what nobody gave me before
So I take a little more, oh oh
Little More, oh oh

Bridge
The more I take, the more I take, it takes control, oh oh
But nobody gives me, what nobody gave me,

So I take a little more.
Track Name: Reruns
All these years keep slippin through my memory
It’s so shot full of holes I can’t hold anymore
Frozen on the porch with cigarettes
Hopin we don’t mean the things we said

Let the new day dawn, we can prove those reruns wrong
There’s a new way come on come on
We’re as young right now as we’ll ever be don’t break down
when you lose control we’re runnin low, not runnin out

Maybe there’s no end to this equation, every answer on leaves waiting on more
We’ve been down this road so many nights
One more time let’s make it to the light


Let the new day dawn, we can prove those reruns wrong
There’s a new way come on come on
We’re as young right now as we’ll ever be don’t break down
when you lose control we’re runnin low, not runnin out
we’re not runnin out,
no we’re not runnin out



Try not to think about losing it, just break open your heart and get used to it


Let the new day dawn, we can prove those re runs wrong, there’s a new way come on come on come on
We’re as young right now as we’ll ever be don’t break down
when you lose control we’re runnin low, not runnin out
we’re not runnin out,
no we’re not runnin out

Let the new day dawn we can prove those reruns wrong reruns wrong, reruns
Track Name: Hey Little Darling
-
Hey little Darlin


The curiosity crippling, you’re multiplying desires
The motherboard in your basement’s catchin’ fire,

You’re driven only by hunger, I wonder when it’s enough
You’re starin’ into the void and tryin’ to fill it up, you just gotta trust me

Hey little darling, with love’s as true as can be,
Keep Playin’ my heartstrings, you put the music in me

A prisoner in a soft cell, swingin into the night
Bundle up and Get strapped in for the ride

You’re rollin’ straight into Step one, soon ur runnin’ away
I’m waitin’ for you to come around the corner and say, daddy’s let go play

Hey little darling, with love as true as can be,
Keep playin’ my heartstrings, you put the music in me
Oh, we’re all getting’ there, every day’s a debut
Josie my little bear, the world is shinin’ on you

Oh we’re all getting there
Josie my little bear
Oh you’re my little bear
Josie we’re getting there

Hey little darling, with love as true as can be,
Keep playin’ my heartstrings, you put the music in me
Oh, we’re all getting’ there, every day’s a debut
Josie my little bear, the world is shinin’ on you

Hey little darling
Hey little darling it’s shinin on you
Track Name: One Soul
One Soul



Slowly I climb, from my bed to the pedestal, each day I may never go back to sleep
We were born in the stars, in the dust, in theparticles, we’reall just a part of all we can’t keep


So oh oh, let the thunder roll, rain cover my body
Oh oh, there’s only one soul, if you’re dancin’ you got it.
if you’re dancin’ you got it.

Now I used to pray that I’d stay for eternity
But one day it occurred to me, this is it
Now I’m free form the past, the illusion of certainty
There’s nobody hurtin me after this

So oh oh, let the thunder roll, rain cover my body
Oh oh, there’s only one soul, if you’re dancin’ you got it.
if you’re dancin’ you got it.
if you’re dancin’ you got it.


I got a feelin, oh maybe there’s nothin’ to lose
I got a feelin, oh and maybe you’re feelin it too
Track Name: Train of Thought
Train of Thought

The parties in my pocket, in a baggie built to spill,
On the keys, and coffee tables, up the bills
Seven years of wanderin’, and I’ve never stumbled on, right or wrong

Stay a little while, one more drink,
And we can watch the time of our lives repeat
But leave the past behind,
We still got lots of time left
Right now I’m all yours and you’re mine love
Ooh ooh, Ooh ooh

All my grand illusions, were scattered in dark
Counter culture conversations with the stars
I’m always running late to catch the train of thought,
Oh that I’ve never caught,
Stay a little while, just one more drink,
And watch the time of our lives repeat
But leave the past behind,
We still got lots of time left
Right now I’m all yours and you’re mine love
Ooh ooh, Ooh ooh

Stay a little while, just one more drink,
And we can watch the time of our lives repeat repeat repeat
But leave the past behind,
We still got lots of time left
Right now I’m all yours and you’re mine love
Ooh ooh, Ooh ooh yeah
Track Name: Fool's Gold
Everybody Tells Me

Passin’ the love along, give it to me before it’s gone
I don’t know where it goes, but when you find it let me know

There was knock I heard, there was a beauty in my shirt
Given the circumstance, there was no way to stand a chance

Livin’ outside the lines, only committed to my crimes
Livin’ inside this shell, where everybody tells me

Oh whoa Oh Oh Oh,
Oh whoa oh oh oh oh oh

Oh whoa Oh Oh Oh,

Stuck in this constant state, of an illusion by fate
If there’s a master plan, call me I’m a slave who’s learned to dance

Track Name: The Second Time Around
If god can’t stop the trouble you’ve got, then you, you got a problem
show them your problem child, smile.
They’ll send you off on your way for a… great big adventure, you learn how to measure your life

You called my bluff, you blew my game, like a punch in the gut, there was nothin’ to say
But love’s it’s different than it sounds.
The slidin’ glass door, goes off its track, when you’re gettin’ ahead and you’re crawlin back in love
But it’s different than it sounds, the second time around.
The second time around

When two big kids get lonely at home, it’s only natural, nobody’s casualty, free
Just keep on changin’ your shoes, and switchin tables, and learn hide away those, real things

You called my bluff, you blew my game, like a punch in the gut, there was nothin’ to say but love’s just different than it sounds I guess

The slidin’ glass door, goes off the track, when you’re gettin’ ahead and you’re crawlin back in love
But it’s different than it sounds, the second time around.
The second time around


The open road’s been closin’ down, but they left all the signs up, some twisted kind of path back,
We’re all alone in the world, but the whole thing keeps changin’, so do the same thing, laugh back


You called my bluff, you blew my game, like a punch in the gut, there was nothin’ to say
But love’s just different than it sounds.

The slidin’ glass door, goes off the track, when you’re gettin’ ahead and you’re Crawlin back
And Love’s just different than it sounds, the second time around.

Oh the second time around

So if god can’t stop the trouble you got, then you got a problem
Show them your problem child smile
Track Name: Josephine
Josephine

I’ve been waiting, for your call,
through the kitchen, down the long hall way
always for you

Momma’s sleepin, I never can
So I just tip toe, around your toys til 2 am strikes
‘Cause that’s when you like to call

And I hold you tightly while you’re driftin’ back to sleep
I treasure every moment like this I can’t Keep
With you in my arms, oh you’re wrapped around my heart
And you can always count on me,
Just so you know you’ll always be, my baby Josephine


I know one day, way too soon
you’ll believe that you don’t need me when you still do love
And that’s too much, much to bear

So I hold you tightly while you’re driftin’ back to sleep
I treasure every moment like this I can’t keep
With you in my arms, oh you’re wrapped around my And you can always count on me,
Just so you know you’ll always be, my baby Josephine, Oh Josephine

I can’t believe I’ll ever learn to let you go,
So tonight, baby I won’t


I just hold you tightly while you’re driftin’ back to sleep
I treasure every moment like this I can’t keep
With you in my arms, oh you’re wrapped around my heart
And you can always count, you count on me
Just so you know you’ll always be, my baby Josephine,
Oh Josephine, My Josephine, Oh Oh
Hey Josie
Track Name: Hold on Clementine
back and forth, pacing every floor, tryin’ to chase that worry from your face
I was… lost without words, So helpless and absurd, But I learned to show you what I tried to say

hold on, hold on, just hold on Clementine
There are moments you control, there are moments that you don’t, you just hold on sometimes

All my love, is always just because
there’s nowhere you could ever go too far
And when your (sweet) heart gets broke, by someone I don’t know
Just don’t forget how beautiful you are

hold on, hold on, just hold on Clementine
There are moments you control, there are moments that you don’t, you just hold on sometimes

Suddenly its over, before you know its done
And you get back to smilin’ like the sun . And it always comes (it always comes)


Years from now, you’ll hear that precious sound
So Full of fear and joy you never knew
But Just remember when it’s late, that (how) it’s always been this way
Sometimes there’s only one thing left to do

hold on, hold on, just hold on Clementine
There are moments you control, but those moments come and go, and you just hold on sometimes
You just hold on, Clementine
