Lightchasers 02:53
The way will find you When you not looking The road will wind through you Yellow lines searching So take a breath You’ve hurried enough The answers running through Your blood and heart and bones Dancing on the roof We are the light chasers Under the full moon We are the light chasers The day will find you When you’re done looking The dawn will drive through All your dark detouring So take a step Calm your mind The answers buried in your spine And in the pines Catching fireflies We are the light chasers Flashing photographs We are the light chasers Lift your eyes to the sky Shooting stars fly by We came here to shine We are the light chasers We are the light chasers And we don’t stop Chasing light

I mighta spent 50 more dollars than I made It mighta been that day I mighta charged up my card just to pay It had to be that way So meet me in the middle At Cain’s Ballroom Sip dandelion moonshine Let’s take a turn You gave up your wallet I lost my ring Being grown up don’t mean anything We could get us a mortgage And a real front porch Put a hammer to the house We could get a hound But I cashed in my retirement plan To make my first record Is your wallet looking any better? What I a grown up anyway? Buying second class salt Talking bout our pains Praying for the day We find our way Can it be today? All my friends are having kids All my friends are buying homes They got real jobs and credit cards They're buying their tombstones ’m running for the stories I’m loving for the lines Am I’m gonna be alright? Are we gonna be alright? What is a grown up anyway? Singing second chance songs Working for our pay Dreaming of the day We get to play Let’s do it today.

Saw her singing on the stage She had my heart from the start Proposed to her the first time we did meet She always settled for safe Til the night she saw my face “I can’t wait” She replied I was high She fell down, down, down Oh, I was drunk on June I try to fall back asleep I put the roses on the sheets Light the candles like the first time We did cheat In the rich hotel Where we broke the rules God, forgive us for what we do I was drunk on June Drunk on June Drunk on June The only drink that ever really worked was you The only taste that could kill my pain Was you Only you You pulled me out You pulled me in We got old Skin to skin Your flesh and blood Is all I need to win Now you’re in a baby blue casket buried deep And I’m living on the edge of mad belief I just wanna get drunk on you But I’m all alone in our room Drunk on June Drunk on June The only drink that ever really worked was you The only taste that could kill my pain Was you Only you And she fell in, she fell in, she fell in I’m coming for you June

Ophelia 02:56
Ophelia’s alone in the street light glow Walking past the bars in the night There goes Rose with a cowboy she knows Guess we’re all looking for light in the dark The poet lost her pen In the floor cracks and gin The tarot and the turntable Spin and spin She goes down so smooth She’s a half written muse And grace has become Another whiskey blond Ophelia’s in the zone with her headphones on Working to her favorite songs Philosophers are tokin’, the White Horse is smokin’ They’re all looking for a place to belong She puts out a vase in a prominent place Collects pieces of paper with Washington’s face Is this the stuff dreams are made of Tequila shot and upright bass The preacher lost his prayer Through the cracks in the stairs The hipsters and hypocrites put on airs They all look so smooth Unamused in their booths And Grace has become Another whiskey blond She’s trying to grow gold It keeps coming up dust Filling her pockets and picture locket The weatherman’s whispering secrets again Growing pains when the grains are sown Ophelia’s alone and the streetlights are gone Walking home into the dawn

As a kid I was taught To keep god in a box Where I could write all my prayers down And lock ‘em up They told me who he was What he meant What he thought They told me there were people He didn’t like a lot I’m breaking the box Of my comfort zone Breaking the box Of what I thought I know They said it so simple Just follow god’s word But I hear god whisper in my ear I’m everywhere In the women at the clinic Gay people in parades The kid on the street And the man with aids The banker, the barista The hooker in lace If I’m looking for god I better get to know your face I’m breaking the box Of my comfort zone Breaking the box Of what I know I’m outside the lines I’m rainbow pearl Momma, I see god in the smile of a girl Benn torn apart and taped together again I’m letting light in And just when I thought I couldn’t get more lost I got found I’m breaking the box Of who I used to be Breaking the box Of how you see me I’m a woman, I’m a child I’m a man of grace If you’re looking for god Better get to know my face

Tuesday 02:36
Living on honey and a half note Drinking my money each night Sipping sweet rye Watching smoke from the lies Passing from your lips to mine My shoes have been soled and resoled Its hard to go anywhere anymore So come over on time Bring a bottle of wine Cuz its Tuesday, and baby I’m yours Loving my hero in half light We’re cheating the hangman by candlelight You reset my blood Skinning teeth with your gun C’mon medicine man, heal me My debt has been sold and resold I don’t owe anybody anything anymore So lets make love like sailors on shore leave sometime This Tuesday, baby I’m yours. The chance for a cheap thrill Fifty dollar bill Take another pill Baby we can’t go on meeting like this Another radio rock star Adopt a folk singer But no touching No touching Don’t touch me like that Cuz my body’s been sold and resold Its hard to know anything anymore So lets make love like singles in silksheets tonight Cuz its Tuesday, and baby I’m yours.

Texas Rain 04:46
I got that warm Texas rain on my chest In the place where her head used to rest On a Sunday morning She left without warning When the summer came It’s been a couple of months Texas is drier than dust She’s been to the ocean She’s been to the mountains I’ve been cleaning up Texas rain, Texas rain Bring my baby back again Creeks flow, grass grows Wildflowers, waterfalls Texas rain Bring her back again She’s a singer, a traveling girl Threw all her cards in for the world She got what she’s dealt She plays what she must Her face is trust But the road twists and turns around the bend I find myself soaking up gin The wine and the women Never learned the limit I’m not ready to win Texas rain, Texas rain Bring my baby back again Creeks flow, grass grows Wildflowers, waterfalls Texas rain Bring her back again I got clothes sticking to my skin Thunder and lighting I’m soaked in my sin Wash it all, please wash it away Come on back to Texas, rain

Nickels and dimes The times you let me down Nickels and dimes The cheaper side of town That's where you hang around Nickels and dimes Waiting in line Her numbers in your pocket But she doesn't know You’re living low on nickels and dimes Nickels and dimes The times you told me lies Nickels and dimes The love you tried to buy Why don’t we go get high Nickels and dimes Cheater’s disguise I can’t forgive your crimes Oh no but I know You never owed me anything You never will But I hoped You would shine me a little silver Just a sliver Get me through the winter February’s cold Nickels and dimes The times I let you go Nickels and dimes The ways you let me know You couldn’t make my flowers grow Nickels and dimes Changing your mind I can’t afford to love you Now that I know You’re living low on nickels and dimes (written by Roger Greenawalt and Daisy O'Connor)

Dawn's Song 04:16
My love is the dawn Singing her song When everythings changing I see Driving around this country She’s always there beside me Singing her song She’s there every morning I wake Up on the roadside too late Good morning darling take me Over the mountain safely Singing your song My love is the dawn And when she’s gone Another grey morning northbound Pacific highway rain sounds Another curbside coffee in a suitcase town She’s not around Waiting on the dawn, waiting on the dawn Waiting on the dawn to rise Does it hurt to burn so bright you break through the night? Waiting on the dawn, waiting on the dawn Waiting on the dawn to rise Does it hurt to burn so bright You light up the sky? Dawn always breaks through the night My love is the dawn When everything’s changing around me Driving through this country She always comes to find me Singing her song

Streetlamp 04:05
When the wheels are spinning too fast Sit and watch them roll Forget what we were saying Turn and watch the dawn The ground cannot hold us What is made is meant to rust The scriptures in the closet The words have turned to dust It took you long enough to find The road just twists back I’ve been holding you like the holiest But that cannot be had Streep lamp shooting stars Walking fast but moving slow On those mornings we don’t want to wake up When the night won’t let you go I don’t think it ends I don’t think it ends When the critics leave their comments When your card game’s a cliché Dive deep into in the water Open arms up to the waves The sun asks you to dance Burning up what isn’t bright Spin until you fall apart Even wrong turns come out right It took me long enough to find I’m running in one place Another bitter broken record Etching lines into my face Streetlamp shooting stars When the moon is hanging low On those mornings you don’t wanna make up When the night won’t let you go I don’t think it ends I don’t think it ends Crawl into the hallow Where the light is what you bring Scatter, shake, and separate The weapon from the sting Listen far as you can hear The can upon the string Everything can sing And I don’t think it ends I don’t think it ends (Ron Scott, Daisy O’Connor)

She sows in soil She shines, she knows She grows roots deep She climbs, she blooms Thought I knew her when She was a song in my head Thought I knew her when She was the burn Of bud blossom dew Oh, come what may I loved her on a April day She stands so still Wind blows her through Rain pours her drink She swoons, she shrinks Thought I knew her when She was strong in her skin Thought I knew her when She was a spark That burned through the dark Oh, come what may I loved her on an August day There is love in the little things Songbird sings from the birch Humming with the breeze Every leaf a tambourine Cicadas sing a vignette I will never forget Her violet crown at sundown Oh come what may I loved her for another day

I Do 02:28
Everyday a smile Everyday a kiss When the sun’s shining from your face Every touch a fire Every taste a tease When the sun’s shining from your face I know we gonna keep going We’re gonna travel on to Tennessee We got fresh blackberries And peach ice cream And I do, I do, I do Every day I pray Every night I stay For the songs falling from your lips Every night I’ll cook In our kitchen barefoot While the songs fall from your lips I know we’re gonna keep joking When we’re sailing on a stormy sea We got maps and stars And chocolate bars And I do, I do, I do. I will love you for a lifetime, my love Cuz I’m loving you today And today is the only day And I’m gonna say I do, I do , I do Everyday I’ll sing your name While the sun shines from our faces And the songs fall from our lips I am loving you In everything I do, I do, I do, I do I do be do be do In everything I do, I do
