Track Name: Blue December
All those nights in bluest December
Waiting round for you to feel better
Constellations falling from the sky

Broken bottles blood on the table
All these years and I wasn’t able
To find a voice you would recognize

I told you once before
I don’t love you anymore
I don’t love you anymore
You know I tried
There’s nothing left to say
You don’t know me anyway
You don’t know me anyway
And that’s all right
There’s nothing left to do
Except walk away from you
So I’ll walk away from you
At least I’ll try

Been a year since our last December
All I’ve got to make you feel better
Is a song you won’t recognize

Empty voices awake in the night air
Falling silent and I really don’t care
If I’m wrong or if you think I’m right


I told you once before
I don’t love you anymore
I don’t love you anymore
You know I tried
There’s nothing left to say
You don’t know me anyway
You don’t know me anyway
And that’s all right
There’s nothing left to do
Except walk away from you
So I’ll walk away from you
At least I’ll try

Given over I was
Given over I was
Giving over all my life
Track Name: Bullet Train
So you’ve got it made
Sunlight on your grave
The golden age
Of light and shade
You’ve got it made

So you’re going black
Train is off the track
You cross your heart
You cross the tracks
You’re going black

The hunter held a holy ghost
And he came to me
And I was overthrown

So you lost your nerve
Wrapped around the curve
Blood in your veins
You took that train
You lost your nerve

So the river’s wide
From the other side
The water’s deep
The water’s wide
On the other side

The hunter held a holy ghost
And he came to me
And I was overthrown

Well’s on fire
Cold desire
For somebody
Outside

So you’ve got it made
Sunlight on your grave
Wind in your veins
That old ghost train
It lost its way

You’ve got it made
You’ve got it made
You’ve got it made
Track Name: New Orleans
There’s a house on the edge of town
Filled with things that we left around
Empty bottles and broken mirrors
Trying hard just to disappear

There’s a river and its running free
With its own possibility
Throws itself out into the sea
Somewhere outside of New Orleans

I wanted
I wanted you

There’s a voice when it comes to me
Breaks my heart with its melody
Growing stronger with every hour
Coming down from your broken tower

There’s a house on an empty lot
Overgrown with forget-me-nots
Growing older with every hour
With your arms full of broken flowers

How you gonna walk the streets
With no one there to find you
When the money runs out
How you gonna fall asleep
With no one there to wake you
When the morning comes round
Its coming around

Left my love down in New Orleans
Do you know what you’ve done to me
Left it all to the Southern rain
All my love on a one way train

In a letter you sent to me
Were the words that would set me free
All my love like a mystery
Do I want you, do you want me

How you gonna walk the streets
With no one there to find you
When the money runs out
How you gonna fall asleep
With no one there to wake you
When the morning comes round
Baby its just you and me
There’s no one left to run to
In this watershed town
So come to me dirty
With the world hung on your shoulders
And we’ll shake it all down

I wanted
I wanted you

Left my love down in New Orleans
Left my love down in New Orleans
Do you know what you’ve done to me
Left my love down in New Orleans

I wanted you
Track Name: How Long
It's like waking without sleeping
Out of shadows into light
It's like sleeping without dreaming
In the valley of the night

O my sister, O my sister
I won’t ask you not cry
O my brother, O my brother
I won’t ask you not to lie

How long how long

In the cold cruel light of morning
You will come to take my hand
You will ask me to remember
Where I’m going, where I’ve been

How long how long

Blue blue the skies
Before the summer storm
You say we’ll be all right
Who’s asking

Blue blue your eyes
Inside the perfect storm
You say we’ll be all right
Who’s asking

How long how long
Track Name: Carry the Weight (I Wanted You)
Hold on
In the dark before dawn
Bridges burn all night long
I will be your shelter
Carry you through fire
Over many waters
In the darkest hour
I will be your answer

I wanted you

Dark star
Full of dark illusion
Nothing could be proven
Give me no good answer

I wanted you

Carry the weight
I will be there
If you want me

Come down
Heavy in your splendor
Morning sun an ember
Burning out your own light

I wanted you
Track Name: Where Are You (I Am Already Gone)
Fall forward in the atmosphere
It's a heavy load to bear
I’ve been living for the longest years
Now I’m running out of air

Heard a rumor in foreign wind
There’s a war around the bend
Bet your life on your lover’s heart
Now you can’t find a friend

Tell your momma that you’ll come home soon
Tell your brother not to cry
Its a long way across a western plain
‘Neath a big country sky

Where are you
I am already gone

Throw your heart out on the western wind
Its a hard heart to break
Sell your soul out for a southern hymn
It's a hard road to take

Call your momma call your daddy too
Tell em I wasn’t there
I’ve been living in your atmosphere
And I’m running out of air

Where are you
I am already gone
Track Name: To Feel Alive
Who’s to blame for the stolen days
Broken wings and yellow haze
I close my eyes just to feel alive
I close my eyes, I close my eyes

Who’s to blame for the desert sun
Burn to dust all that I have done
I go outside and I take a ride
I drive all night just to feel alive

Who’s to blame for the memories
Lonely nights and stolen dreams
This old ghost town is still around
But its catching fire and its burning down

Can we make it
Can we make it out

Who’s to blame for this broken ring
Call to arms all the suffering
I close my eyes and I’m still alive
I close my eyes, I close my eyes
Track Name: Stained Glass
She’s got her finger on the hand of time
She’s got one foot forward and the other behind
And she’s betting all her chances on another day

Close the screen door night’s coming on
He’ll be back in the morning coming on strong
And you might as well take some shelter from the storm

I know yeah I know yeah I know
It's gonna be fine

We don’t break into pieces
We don’t break into pieces
We don’t break into pieces
Like we used to do
What am I gonna do

Sunday morning light in the church
She’s got one hand over everything that hurts
And she’s betting all her chances on the everlasting arms

There she goes on a stained glass night
She’s got money in her pocket she’s taking flight
And she’s leaving every one of us in the hands of God

She knows yeah she knows yeah she knows
We’re gonna be fine

We don’t break into pieces
We don’t break into pieces
We don’t break into pieces
Like we used to do
What am I gonna do

If you asked me to follow
Would I find you

I don’t know if you made it out
You had a one way ticket heading south
And you might’ve crossed the border late last night

I can hear your voice on the wind
I can hear you saying its gotta end
And you’re betting all your chances on the other side

We don’t break into pieces
We don’t break into pieces
We don’t break into pieces
Like we used to do
What am I gonna do
Track Name: White Horses
Forget it
That’s the only way
Still I feel like I had more to say

Fall forward
That’s the only road
Still I feel like I have lost my way

White horses
Oh won’t you take me higher
Like lightning catching fire

So silent
Angel over me
Do you bring me a word of life or love

So quiet
World on its knees
I don’t hear any answer so I leave

White horses
Oh won’t you take me higher
Like lightning catching fire

Going down to West Virginia
Given all the love that’s in you
I don’t think it’s gonna be the last straw

Going down to Oklahoma
Given all the years I’ve known you
I don’t think it’s gonna be the last straw

White horses
Oh won’t you take me higher
Like lightning catching fire
Track Name: First Day of the Year
I think every song should be slow
I think every note should be low

Cause you shut me out shut me in
Shoved me off of my feet again
You know it’s a sin
Keeping it in
On the first day of the year

I saw a bird fall from the sky
That bird it was flying so high
And you know it ain’t right
To be brought down in flight
When you’re singing your song
You know that it brought me so low
That bird had to know
When she sang her last song
And let it all go

You told me all I wanna hear
You told me you sang it so clear
You know it ain’t right
To be telling me lies
Nothing is wrong
Everything’s gonna be all right
Its out of line
To be singing your song
Like a lie

I told you all you need to hear
I told you I made it real clear

Don’t you call me up call me out
Call me in call me anything
To leave me behind
You’re out of your mind
On the first day of the year

Cause you shut me out shut me in
Shoved me off of my feet again
You know it’s a sin
Keeping it in
On the first day of the year
Track Name: All My Love
So you’re gonna lie there on the floor
You don’t know who you’re looking for
I will go lightly through the darkness
So you want a revolution I want more

Well I have halos
I have roses and a thorn and I wear em all well
Sing hallelujah with your pretty tongue
Roses and a thorn and you wear em all well

Say you’re gonna reach him now one of these days
Sing hallelujah going home

Well I’ve got money
I’ve got what it takes to get me back home
Sing hallelujah from those pearly gates
You’ve got what it takes to get you back home

Say you’re gonna reach him now one of these days
Sing hallelujah going home

All my love
All my love
I will give you all my love
Track Name: First to Leave
I won’t be the first to leave
Baby you can count on me
Meet me in the morning
And we’ll wash away your sins
I won’t be the first to leave

Baby don’t you go tonight
Darling it’ll be all right
Stay with me till morning
And we’ll talk it over then
You don’t have to go tonight

Maybe we should go tonight
Drive until the road feels right
Cross another border
Find another empty town
Maybe we should go tonight

Baby don’t you go tonight
Stay with me you know its right
Build your life on lovers
That’ll only tear you down
Maybe you should stay tonight
