Track Name: I've Got To Go
Tell my Father that I’m going to make him proud
And tell my mother that I’m going to keep my head on
Tell my brother that I’m going to fall in love before he does
Oh, and tell my sister that I’m going to call soon
Because I’ve got to go

I’ve got to build something, I’ve got to go
I’ve got to make a life of my own
And I will not stop until these hands have a home
Oh, I’ve got to go

I’m not sure what it is to be a man
But, oh man, I’m just trying as hard as I can
And I’ve been thinking all through the night, about what you said
About how no one’s going to matter when they’re dead
But I’ve got to try

I’ve got to build something, I’ve got to try
I’ve got to do something good with my life
And I will not stop until I run out of time
Oh I’ve got to try

Oh I’ve got to try
I’ve got to build something, I’ve got to try
I’ve got to do something good with my life
And I will not stop until I run out of time
Track Name: Stormy Weather
I’ve never been one for stormy weather
But all of these clouds are coming close
I know that you and I should probably run for cover
But let’s just wait it out and see where it goes

I need to head back to West Virginia
Down to the place my dad was born
Because I’ve been forgetting what he told me
Don’t lose your footing on this road

When I was young, the sun was shining bright as ever
But I never looked up to see where the light was from
Oh, now it feels like the sun is setting
Now I’m looking up just to see where the light has gone

I need to head back to California
Down to the place my mom was born
Because I’ve been forgetting what she told me
Son, don’t lose sight of the Lord

Now I’m sitting here in Texas
Sitting here looking up at the moon
And I know that I’ve been forgetting
That the sun is coming up soon
Track Name: Ghost In The Garden
I was a ghost in the garden
Where I saw a man and a woman
They were taller than I would have expected
And they were naked and all

There were no angels to speak of
And there were no devils below
And I wanted so bad to reach out
And tell them both

You wont ever find a place better than here
You wont ever find a place better than here

I was a whisper from someone
I was a voice in the past
But you never knew how to make sense of me
And you were moving fast

Time wasn’t able to keep you
And time was unable to tell
That we all want to burn like a star
And you were burning out

You wont ever find a place better than here
You wont ever find a place better than here
Track Name: I'll Get By
I’ve been waiting on the devil
To come up and take my soul away
And I’ve been lighting all the candles
And bowing my head to pray
And all the roses I see around me
I know they’re in bloom
But they’re still looking gray

And I know, not every street is paved in gold
But even though I walk most of them alone
I’ll get by

I’ll get by, Oh, I’ll get by
I’ll get by, Oh, I’ll get by

On my own now, I’m heading Northbound
And I’ve been trying to make it for a while
I need a road map, or a compass
Because I can’t tell what’s yours and what is mine
Oh I believe that one day angels
Will come pick me up and take me for a ride

And I know, not every street is paved in gold
But even though I walk most of them alone
I’ll get by

I’ll get by, Oh, I’ll get by
I’ll get by, Oh, I’ll get by

Lean in close, lean in close
I’m not the one you should listen to
I just write songs for you to sing along
But, I’m not trying to tell you any truths

And if I were, I’d say not every street is gold
But who am I? Just a songwriter trying to get by
And I get by

I’ll get by, Oh, I’ll get by
I’ll get by, Oh, I’ll get by
Track Name: That Silver Line
When your heart is cold
And the open road
Doesn’t give you hope like it used to
Without a single light
And through the darkest night
I’ll meet you on that silver line
I’ll meet you on that silver line

I’ll meet you on that silver line

When all you can see
Are terrible things
moving through life in slow motion
Without a single doubt
Let these words ring out
I’ll meet you on that silver line
I’ll meet you on that silver line

I’ll meet you on that silver line
I’ll meet you on that silver line
I’ll meet you on that silver line

I’ll meet you on that silver line
I’ll meet you on that silver line
Meet me on that silver line
Track Name: Come On, Sailor
If I were a captain on a ship
I’d try to go where the light is
Because I don’t have a compass no
And all the days that I’ve had
Just searching for any dry land
I’ve never found a place I could call home
No I never had a place to call my own

Come on, Sailor you’re almost there
Come on, Sailor just grab on to that wind
Because this old boat is going to take you home again
And again, and again

I’ve been looking for a way outside my head
Because I get lost in it
It’s a foreign land that I don’t understand
And all the maps that I’ve look at
Just never have the topographic features that I’m seeing
I just need something to believe in

Come on, Sailor you’re almost there
Come on, Sailor just grab on to that wind
Because this old boat is going to take you home again
And again, and again

Oh love is not and ocean it’s a star
It’s not a language, it’s the heart that keeps on beating
Oh love is not a compass or a map
It’s not the places that we’re at but where we’re going

Come on, Sailor you’re almost there
Come on, Sailor just grab on to that wind
Because this old boat is going to take you home again
Come on, Sailor you’re almost there
Come on, Sailor just grab on to that wind
Because this old boat is going to take you home again
And again, and again
Track Name: The Highest Tide
If you knew me back when I was younger
The world at my feet was what mattered
Oh how I thought everything it was beautiful
And I loved it much like a mother

If humility is the thing I’ve been needing
Well I’ve got enough to last
Maybe it’s time that I try something dangerous
But only if you have my back

During the highest tide
While the water is rising
Will you still keep me in your sight?

All I want is to feel my heart beating
I’m beating it to death
I remember when running forever
Was the only escape I could get
If only I knew What that meant

During the highest tide
While the water is rising
Will you still keep me in your sight?

During the highest tide
While the water is rising
Will you still keep me in your sight?
Track Name: We Painted Pictures
We painted pictures of ourselves
From a photograph
Of the time we spent our birthdays together
You were wearing that blue dress

We spent time riding the metro line
All across the town
And we never said a word to each other
We just wrote them down

I was never in love, I was never in love
I was never in love until I met you

I want to paint your picture
I want to hang it on the wall
And when our children are older
They’ll say “Hey mama,
Where’d you get that picture from?”

Even though I’ve always known
I still took my time
And oh, my love, do you think that you could be
You could be my wife?

I was never in love, I was never in love
I was never in love until I met you

I want to paint your picture
I want to hang it on the wall
And when our children are older
They’ll say “Hey mama,
Where’d you get that picture from?”
Track Name: Stuck In The Middle
I don’t want to float away
Like a song at the edge of my tongue
And I don’t want to have to wait
Like a man dying all alone

Oh I’m stuck in the middle
Of a road with no end
Yeah I’m stuck in the middle
With a dollar bill that won’t spend
I just need change
Some change my friend
We just need change
Let’s try this again

I don’t know what it’s like
Being born with both of my hands tied
And I don’t know what it’s like
Having eyes on my back all the time

Oh I’m stuck in the middle
Of a road with no end
Yeah I’m stuck in the middle
With a dollar bill that won’t spend
I just need change
Some change my friend
We just need change
Let’s try this again

Oh time is moving slow
Yeah time, it’s moving backwards
Oh time is moving slow
Are we almost there? Are we almost there?
Are we almost there? Are we almost there?

Oh I’m stuck in the middle
Of a road with no end
Yeah I’m stuck in the middle
With a dollar bill that won’t spend
Track Name: A Miracle
I need a miracle to come pick up my bones
And I feel hysterical but surely a better day will come
Yeah surely a better day will come
I’ve got a photograph of someone that I love
And I will pin it to my chest so it hurts when I think of you
Yes it hurts when I think of you

But I never say what I want to say
But honey, you already know
There is a part of you looking at me
While I’m drowning, drowning
I’m drowning down below

All of the days we have are slowly counting down
And all of the stars we counted our love by are fading out
Yes our stars they are fading out

But I never say what I want to say
But honey, you already know
There is a part of you looking at me
While I’m drowning, drowning
I’m drowning down below

I never say what I want to say
But honey, you already know
There is a part of you looking at me
While I’m drowning, drowning
I’m drowning down below
Track Name: Goodbye
I don’t want to stop chasing after stars
But it’s my only way out
I’m looking to the sky to help me to decide
Where I need to go now

And where I need to go, I may never know
But I’ll always be kind enough to say
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

It’s never taken long to know when I was wrong
But this time I just don’t know
I can’t make up my mind, I’m tired all the time
It never should be like this

And where I need to go, I may never know
But I’ll always be kind enough to say
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

I don’t know what I’ve been running from
I just know I want to make it home
I don’t know what I’ve been running from
I just know I want to make it home

And where I need to go, I may never know
But I’ll always be kind enough to say
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
