Walk Away 03:23
I’m just gonna walk away I’m just gonna let it go Everything's so different now I’m so tired of being alone Feels like I’ve been waiting here Baby, for a hundred days Don’t know wanna wait here anymore I’m just gonna walk away I used to watch the cars roll by I used to think that you’d be there Now I don’t watch the cars anymore I just sit and stare Staring at the same four walls Every night and everyday Don’t know what I was waiting for I’m just gonna walk away I toss all night, can’t get no peace I drink too much, and I can’t sleep Don’t even know what I’m supposed to do Spend my whole life, waiting for you I’m just gonna walk away I’m just gonna let it go Everything’s so different now I’m so tired of being alone Staring at the same four walls Every night and every day Don’t want to do it anymore I’m just gonna walk away

How could I know I was headed for such a big fall? If there was a warning, then I never saw it at all It occurs to me now that the train we were on was off track How do you fix it when you know you’re not coming back? Down at the mission I copped a few lines of cocaine Wandered around until I was too numb to feel blame I saw you walking the wind blowing warm in your hair You walked right by me like you never had any care Now call on the angels cause it’s getting harder to breathe Tell them I’m sorry and I need a ticket to leave There’s a hole in my heart and I don’t think I can survive I need somebody to hold me and keep me alive How could you think everything that I said was a lie? That every new moment was one I was saying goodbye You had a fire burning so bright in your heart You said I blew it out and left you'll all alone in the dark So call on the angels cause it’s getting harder to breathe I’m only looking for something enough to believe There’s a hole in my heart and I don’t think I will survive I need somebody to hold me and keep me alive I just need somebody to hold me and keep me alive

I don’t remember what day it was I only know something happened to us When the clouds rolled in, the sky turned gray Baby, that storm took you away Well the rain comes in when the door’s left open Seeps through the cracks where the walls are broken Floods like a river in its wake And swallows all that it can take Cause everything we have, was never meant to last And all that’s left for me are bones and gravity I went down to the river to pray But God didn’t have a thing to say And I saw your reflection there Smile at me without a care Well I don’t trust the things I see I’m not quite sure what I believe But I know things you’ll never know And honey that’s the way I’ll go When everything we have, was never meant to last And all that’s left for me are bones and gravity Now every night he comes to me With broken things he cannot leave He places them inside the door And moves across the bedroom floor He slips beyond the shadow walls Where sunrise and the light will fall And disappears into the dawn Where nothing’s left for holding on And everything we have, was never meant to last Now all that’s left for me are bones and gravity

Caroline 03:28
The air was thicker than a whiskey still Hotter than Texas when you made your kill Running down that highway like a gypsy queen, getting out People like you are always on the take Leave everything broken in your wake Somebody must’ve done something to you sometime My blood runs cold, down to my soul You’re so unkind; I hope you find some peace of mind Caroline Black clouds rolling down my road I feel thunder rumbling in my bones All I want is to leave this all behind People like you never really try Count your change while you’re waving bye I wish I could count how many times I’ve cried You always could, who knew you would Be so unkind, I hope you find some peace of mind Caroline

Lay Him Down 02:46
I curse the day he called my name Wrapped my heart in a burning flame Then he pulled me under like a ball and chain Down, down, down Seven years and fifteen days I watched him lie in a whiskey haze A man ain’t never gonna change his ways Oh, lay him down Oh, my daughter stay with me Trust the things that you can see A shotgun barrel and a burning tree Oh, burn it down Brother, can you hear me now The sunrise never gonna come around Till he’s six feet under in the stony ground Oh, lay him down Down, lay him down

Emmylou 03:58
It’s a long way down to salvation from this town But I don’t want to drive that far today So I’ll just stay here but there’s nothing much to do Count the cars and watch them roll away In another time, I’d be on my way But I don’t want to go back like before Oh Emmylou, there’s an achin’ in my chest Pain that will not rest If redemption was a bell, this whole town would hear it ring On this day of reckoning Should I close my eyes, never look up to the sky? Do I turn away from everything we dreamed? Cause I don’t know if it matters anymore But nothing is the way it used to be In another life, I might have stayed Now I don’t want to live here anymore Oh Emmylou, there’s an achin’ in my chest Pain that will not rest If redemption was a bell, this whole town would hear it ring On this day of reckoning

Hurricane 03:02
Well, I’m not a good friend, I make a treacherous wife I will ease you down on the edge of a knife I’ll make you smile, just to see you cry And I’ll make you promise, just to watch you lie I’m not good at love, it always turns out bad Never been a good lover, never had what they have Lately I’ve been crying myself to sleep Thinking about us, getting in too deep Cause I’ll pick you up, just to shoot you down And I’ll tie you up and drag you around I’m an ice storm brewing in a southern town I’m a hurricane in a wedding gown I never can commit, I’m never really sure So don’t bring me diamonds, I don’t know what they’re for I’m a hot loose wire, got a loaded gun I wanna make you stay, I’m gonna let you run Cause I’ll pick you up, just to shoot you down And I’ll tie you up and drag you around I’m an ice storm brewing in a southern town I’m a hurricane in a wedding gown I’m a Texas flood I’m a burning house I’m a hurricane in a wedding gown

Tired 04:26
You and me weren’t born the fighting kind But that’s what we became I just can’t remember now When it changed You were like a part of me I swore you were my breath Am I still a part of you How do you forget? Sometimes we get too close Kick ashes on the fire So it is with desire Baby I just got so tired Baby I just got so tired I drive down these streets now Things just look the same No one knows who I am Somethings never change I still see you standing there Shouldering the blame For everything we ever had And everything we lost Sometimes it gets too hard To argue what is right So you just give up the fight Baby I just got so tired Baby I just got so tired

Kindness 04:11
Where is the sun, this room is dark I lost the light, I lost the spark I must have tripped under your spell One misstep and then I fell You took the shadows from my wall When they weren't mine to give at all You let me in, then shut me out Now I’m stuck with no way out Kindness don’t cost a thing Kindness don’t cost a thing Kindness Don’t really know you at all I only try to search myself It’s hard to tell what’s inside, What’s inside anyone Kindness don’t cost a thing Kindness don’t cost a thing Kindness Someday I will hear your name And I’ll find something nice to say I know you won’t remember me But I’ll do it anyway Cause kindness don’t cost a thing Kindness don’t cost a thing Kindness

I don’t love you like I love my dog I don’t love you like I love my dog My dog wanders with me all day My dog wanders with me all day People leave you and let you down People leave you and let you down But my dog will always stay Just a footstep away People leave you and they let you down When my dog goes I will go too When my dog goes I will go too Over that bridge into the blue I’m not going anywhere with you Cause when my dog goes I will go too I don’t love you like I love my dog I don’t love you like I love my dog

I Was a Bird 03:59
Hello my friend, I meant to call you up A thousand times But time got in at the way I heard you’re well, I heard you found love I sent you my love For all this time I hurt myself, I won’t do anything But I’d give anything to see you now I hear your voice in every waking dream You’re part of everything That haunts me now I was a bird, I had to fly Away from here or I would die I was a bird, I flew so far To find my home is where you are I was a bird Time has its way with us We never have a hand I guess I hoped someday That you would understand I was a bird, I had to fly Away from here or I would die I was a bird, I flew so far To find my home is where you are I was a bird
