Track Name: Today
I made love today, I wasn’t in the mood.
I did it anyway and boy did it feel good.
Oooh his bedroom eyes, I could not avoid
Singing playing his guitar, oooh that boy.

You know it when you roll over
and the rooster’s crowing out of tune.
There’s a something just not right
you gotta fix that bad inside of you.
Aaaahhhhh Aaaahhhh

I walked outside today, I’m singing with the dogs.
It’s snowing light and now it’s mucking up my logs.
I climbed a hill today, the one out in the back.
Slippin sliding my way up, don’t know why I did that.

I wrote it down today my secret, in a note.
In a bottle for the ocean to submerge itself or float.
I picked it up and rolled it down to the shore
I was hoping in this way it’d bother me no more.
Track Name: Come Home
Come home to you
in the middle of the night.
you come home to me
if i’m off by nine.

I’ll get the well water
If you go feed the dogs
Or you’ll come walk me home
so i don’t get lost

no more maintenance drinking
no more whiskey shot and beer
just a sip of wine at night
or a cocktail for my dear

I’ll meet you down
the road from my where i parked
I’ll meet you down
in the basement of the bar

Whoever gets there sooner,
saddle up or take a booth
don’t matter to me
as long as there’s room for two.
Track Name: If You Really Want One
When it comes to talking, I won't do a lot.
but I'm thinking a whole bunch, and you're reading each thought.
I won’t end up in a fairy tail world.
I’ll never be your manic pixie dream girl.
You wanna go out, I guess that’s alright.
I’ll be your sweetie, at least for tonight.
I can be down and sometimes I’ll run.
But I’ll be your baby if you really want one.
I can be down and sometimes I’ll run.
But I’ll be your baby if you really want one.

All those times, when I said I care,
I’m not sure if my heart was there.
If you find I’m too much dark and no light,
I’ll understand I won’t put up a fight.

You wish I were something that could really stay
but there’s something in my mind always gets in the way
I can be down and sometimes I’ll run
But I’ll be your baby if you really want one
Track Name: Get Happy
I don’t mind you looking into my eyes
and thinking of her.
I can take you away from that constant ache
you can’t seem to shake.

But I can be your new second best.
Just another lover between the last one and the next.
Let’s not bare our souls, I won’t show you mine
if you don’t show me yours.

You don’t have to tell me
I hear it all in the way you say her name.
You do what you need to do to get happy
but in the meantime,

There’s no need to pretend
that we’re each other’s happy end
But I’m in your bed
so why don’t we get happy right now instead?
Track Name: My Sister's House
I’m going to appointments
I’m hurting on the job
No money in the bank,
my wine is in a box.

I’m busking on the train,
I’m burning my last log.
Can’t believe I’m 27,
only bunking with my dog.

Soon enough I’m moving
into my sister’s house.
But I’m drinking alone for now.

My heart, it rots in passion,
or is that loneliness?
Who will be my companion
for the rest of this?

I’m going to appointments
I’m hurting on the job.
I’m busking on the train
I’m burning my last log.
Track Name: Slow
Fast love that makes no sense,
I tried ignorance.
It fades sooner than you’d think.
Inflames your brain and bursts your seems.

That’s how I know.
When I loved you, I loved you slow.
That’s how I know.
Cause when I feel it, I feel it slow.

Each day it makes more sense,
but I tried resistance.
It opens even so,
my heart to your fearless soul.

Still I tried to real it in,
for lessons I’ve learned in the past.
It will run it’s course if it goes to fast
Track Name: Whimsy & Wine
My hands are beat as the souls of my feet.
Calloused and stained a soft shade of dirt.
Knuckles swollen, aches in my joints,
knees bruised a deep shade of work.

Give me my sister, send over my brother,
some food and some water and I’m fine.
‘Cause I lost my lover, but I’ll find me another
to fill me with whimsy and wine.

No patch of skin that ain’t sticky with sweat.
Lips cracked and dry, red veins in my eyes.
When work is over, I lay my head on
the ground I walk on, there’s no bed.

Give me my sister, send over my brother,
some food and some water and I’m fine.
Well, I lost my lover, but I’ll find me another
to fill me with whimsy and wine.

Just give me my sister, send over my brother,
some food and some water and I’m fine.
Well, I lost my lover, but I’ll find me another
to fill me with whimsy and wine.
Yeah, I lost my lover, but I’ll find me another
to fill me with whimsy and wine.
Track Name: Everything Again
I will try not to rouse you while I gather my things
You’re stirring and reaching
There’s a warm wrinkled imprint on your sheets
An indent on your pillow, the floor creaks ‘neath my feet

I know you just want me to stay
I know when to walk away

I fell head over heels like this before
I can’t do it again, can’t open that door

I know you just want me to stay
I know when to walk away
Aaaah, aaaah, aaaah

Clap my hand to my side to silence my keys
Catch the lock in the door, I am leaving
You’re stirring and reaching

I know you just want me to stay
I know when to walk away
I know you just want me to stay
I know when to walk away
Aaaah, aaaah, aaaah

I’d go back and do everything again
It’d be the same as before, the same in the end
Aaaah, aaaah, aaaah
Track Name: What Good Would It Do Ya
I could tell you about all the times I walked down the road
To check the light just to see if you were home.
I could tell you about all the swill I drank in your name
All the ways I tried to keep my mind in the dark.

What good would it do ya? What good would it do ya?

I admit the rambling got me a little lost.
and now that I’ve settled down I know what it cost.
I could tell you all about the lengths I went.
All the ways I tried to kick you out of my heart.


I could tell you about all the nights I woke in a sweat
wanting just another glimpse of your silhouette
I could tell you about all the thoughts I kept to myself
About all the lives we could and lived and where we went.
Track Name: Don't Wanna Grow Old
I miss the days when I believed
what pastor John was preaching to me
The days when age was nothing
back when time didn’t pack heat.

I don’t have a god or a devil
I’m don’t fear the fate of my soul
Don’t ask me what my plan is
I just don’t wanna grow old.

Sometimes I just want to hear that I
am doing something right
cause lately i’m finding myself
not sleeping through the night

I don’t have a god or a devil
I’m don’t fear the fate of my soul
Don’t ask me what my plan is
I just don’t wanna grow old.

I wish I had more time
good love can be hard to find
some mistakes can take
years to unwind
