Track Name: Bag of Bones
Old bag of bones
that is where I start
My mind keeps telling me I shouldn't
but I only listen to my heart

This old bag of bones
has been sitting still a while
collecting dust and dreams and all of those things
but it knows

that we could be two birds of a feather
if you start coming around
I've got my heart set deep on loving again
and you're where I want to start

This heavy heart
it is hiding behind this old bag of bones
and you know that it knows

that we could be two birds of a feather
if you start coming around
I've got my heart set deep on loving again
and you're where I want to start

But Oh I am paralyzed
by the look in your eyes
that tells me you don't want me to go home
Oh I think you're just in time
though you're out of sight
you are never far from my mind
Track Name: Heartachin'
Gray storm clouds are rushing over
Thunder clapped so loud that grown men run for cover
Wet raindrops pepper windshields
holding down your hat while dust kicked up on the playground

but it's just the sound
of another heart achin'
the pressure that's involved when the fever is breakin'
Just these teardrops
I can't help from falling
and holdin' my breath
wondering if I should call him tonight

Now my best friend investing interest
advising quite politely over lunch
where he can stick it
but I don't even listen
too busy mourning us
you know I just can't help but miss him

when it's just the sound
of logic and reason
and practicality's got nothing to do
with my feelings tonight

When Gray storm clouds are rushing over
Thunder clapped so loud that grown men run for cover
Wet raindrops pepper windshields
holding down your hat the dust kicked up on the playground

but it's just the sound
of my little heart breakin'
my loving days are numbered
if you are away
and it's hard to imagine my life
without you
even though I'm sure
that I was never right for you at all
Track Name: Big Brown Box
Someday our bodies will rest in a big brown box
and itch for heaven like the chicken pox
and float up like smoke or like fog
When we get up there
will everyone know
that we were good, happy, fortunate souls
while we were still walking down here

there's a silver lining on a dark gray cloud
if you come up here we can figure it out together
my hand in your hand
and if the only thing you recognize
is the sound of my voice in the middle of the night
then listen; I'll tell you the truth

Someday I'm gonna be older
someday I'm gonna die
someday our bodies will fall
and before then someday
I'll be your bride

Oh it's hard enough just waiting
Heaven's closer than I thought
but then again
we are still just here, hearts beating
won't do the hardest thing
go back where we were
Track Name: Devil's Nest
Yes sir I went down down down
to the devil's nest on the river banks
to pay my respects
no no no I did not linger long
just long enough to sing this song

goodbye, goodnight
I'm leaving you
for a better life
goodbye, don't cry
I'm leaving you
for a better life

So I ran back back back
into my mother's arms
to tell her how I had turned it around
all this talk of the Holy Ghost
where he lives but mamma,
where did he go

Goodbye, goodnight
he'll still be here in the morning light
goodnight, close your eyes
he'll still be here in the morning light

all you haters are gonna learn how to love
and all you lovers are gonna hold them up
all beware the snake and the wolf
creepin' around they're gonna get
what is yours

So I went back back back
to the river banks
to dip my head and say my thanks
all the sinners in their winter coats
grabbing out for that holy ghost have said

Goodbye, goodnight
we'll see you in the afterlife
goodbye, don't cry
he's coming back when the time is right
Track Name: Cerebellum
The mind can wait
it's the heart who is impatient
to wrap you up in its arms
my body calm, grounded to the earth
and yet my soul aches to get out

there's churning seas and longitude between us
if one smile on your face becomes lost
I may not have but dust in my pocket
but in you I've got a lot

Now there's a line on your face
for every road you've travelled
and the women you've met along the way
and for each one of mine
a shining star above me
for the road that brought me close to you today

Now it's like sticks and stones
if I lost you
one thousand cracks for my spine that I'm stepping on
to keep you closer than a vessel keeps a wayward crew
and I'm floating out past the amazon

So if your heart grows cold
and your eyes begin to wander to another field
whose grasses seem more green
oh think of how my heart
like a bird without a song will fall quite low
And never be swayed to sing
fall quite low
Track Name: Barn Owl
I am like a black bird
in a night storm
though trouble finds me sleeping
cannot help but wake me up for more

a splinter, the electric sockets
this headache I have tried to knock it out
to say that I am alright
the good things are better late than they are never
it's alright
a leak is no flood
this hurt did not bring blood
it is alright
and it's enough

that I am but a barn owl
in a bird cage
I know about how a lock and key work
but opening some doors comes with age

a splinter, the electric sockets
this headache I have tried to knock it out
to say that I am alright
the good things are better late than they are never
it's alright
a leak is no flood
this hurt did not bring blood
it is alright
and it's enough
Track Name: In the Stars
Birds sing baby
in the summertime
and when the winter comes baby
will I still call you mine

So best to leave this
all in the stars
Track Name: Will anybody love me
There's a light on the porch that tells me
when you're coming home
but it's late and that light isn't shining
and I know it means you are gone

will anybody love me again
will anybody love me again

I met a boy in the city
who thought he was old and wise
but that boy couldn't love me good enough
and I knew that I would not be his bride

will anybody love me again
will anybody love me again

When I know that I must be doing something wrong
when my heart's always broken
and how is there any hope for love
when my heart's never open

oh no but will anybody love me again
Track Name: Moved by Strings
I'm beginning to think
that your love is a dream
that any moment I'll awake
And you'll be gone from me

though I worry
I will not fear
it's those who break hearts
that aren't worthy of my tears

because you see that no woman
deserves the kind of love that you bring
and though you're here with me
I'm afraid someday that you might leave
cause your love is a dream
Oh you're a dream

Now my mother
oh she taught me well
when she said that our hearts
are not moved by strings

though I've loved and I've lost
oh and have cried for them all
her truth has stayed with me
when she said

That no man will deserve the kind of love that you'll bring
And the one you choose won't make you cry
but lift your head up and want to sing
cause that love is a dream
oh oh you're a dream
Track Name: the Hard Part
I always leave out the hard parts
I've got a case of selective memory
I always leave out the hard parts
cause all I want is a happy ending

and they'll ask where is your mind
but I float like a little tug-boat
without the hard parts
float like a little tug-boat
without the hard parts

I always leave out the hard parts
I've got a case of selective memory these days
I always leave out the hard parts
cause all I want is a happy ending someday

and they'll ask where is your mind
but I fly like a butterfly
without the hard parts

Now there'll be thunder and rain
there'll be hardships and pain
Oh I could just cry my life away
because that is so in style

no instead I float
without those hard parts
I float without the hard, hard parts
