Track Name: Good Wife
Good Wife
_________
Big plans and he’s gonna get things done, and he
Tells his plans to everyone
Ya' better make one fast move kid or it’s gone, well cuz’
Big Ideas only stretch so long

Seventeen with no idea where to go, so he
Packed his care and headed to the road
Got lost in Denver for a while when he met her
He’s in love and he knows that for sure
She is everything to him and he’s everything to her
-
Twenty-three with a job, wife, and kid
He’s got happiness and that good enough for him
He still holds those Ideas in his head, he’s not
Standing still but he talks about them less
Just a matter of time I guess

She’s a good person a Good Wife as well
Patient and pretty and strong as hell
She knows his dreams and she’ll follow him to them, well cuz’
Her dreams are Love, Trust, Happiness, and Him.

Oh Love it’s everything you are
Give up everything you have, everything want
Oh Love it’s everything you are
Give up everything you have, everything want
Oh Love it’s everything you are

When The Sun Is Setting
______________________
Once in a while, when the sun is setting
With the cold, faucet water running
Hands are washed, from what you’ve been cutting
A Mother’s touch, things are finally feeling
Not the same, no there’s something different
A coming peace, like our hands have shifted
Dusty fumes, you said you felt but didn’t
Know about the reason, well

Follow me, through that Cedar Tree Grove
Climb the fence, by the teetered old stove
Hungry eyes, took in all that they chose
The water’s edge, this is all that we know
Bush and Pine, all know green with pleasure
Take my hand, take my younger brother
For all the world to see
For all the world to see
Track Name: Better Songs
Better Songs
____________
If I could write you a better song, like the ones I wrote when I was young

Stand up fast get the blood to your head
Dance those legs till you can barely stand
Let the daytime, light the way ‘till the nighttime’s end, now
Whatcha’ gonna’ do with the time you’re given
Spend a little here, waste a lot while missin’
Out on the road, nobody knows where you are

One of these day’s you’ll wind up alone
With a wife and a kid and a job and a home, now
Don’t really really bother with those kind of things
You only need me
-
Write you Better Songs
Like the ones I wrote when I was young
-
Shy from the Sun to escape the heat
Well it’s hard to sleep, with your scent on my sheets
The nightlife’s beat bleeds, into the morning's grief

When the throbbin' bursts through my skull
These lonely arms want a soul to hold
Spin you slowly float like a crow
-
Write you Better Songs
Like the ones I wrote when I was young
-
Everything I did wrong is coming down hard
I did my worst
Is anger ever really the better answer
I can do my best, if we all stay friends

Is it ever like the movies
Where we all stay young
Everything is perfect
We all have fun
Is it ever like the movies
Where we all stay young
And we look a little older
-
Write you Better Songs
Like the ones I wrote when I was young

We all had fun
When I was young
Track Name: Party In Your Honor
Party In Your Honor
_________________
Root do do doo, root do do do doo

I would take your hand and run with it
Like we were just invited
To the captains royal garden
For a Party In Your Honor

We’ll probably show up early
Talk politics while you worry
They call your name and you stand up
You bow, they clap, and you blush
-
Well everybody showed up for you
Maybe next time we can bring your family too
Just take my hand as we leave don’t worry about a thing
I’ll carry you all the way home
-
Let’s meet the mayor of the city
Ask him about society
He said, “kid listen, watcha’ using your brain for,
Just go out and waste some time on the dance floor”

Dim the lights down low and move up close to her
Just move your feet it’s closer to the answer
-
Well everybody showed up for you
Maybe next time we can bring your family too
Just take my hand as we leave don’t worry about a thing
I’ll carry you all the way home

Here we go!
Root do do doo, root do do do doo
Track Name: Poor Excuse For A Lover
Poor Excuse For A Lover
______________________
Oh I only need you for just an hour
After you can leave maybe take a shower
I am such a Poor Excuse For A Lover
Oh I just ignore you when it’s over

What if I could change
Or maybe I’m just stuck in my ways
What if I did change
Would I just revert someday

Oh I only need you when I’m lonely
Middle of the night when I take you slowly
And I whisper simply words, yeah you’re my one and only
I only say these words, to get you from your clothing.

What if I could change
Or maybe I’m just stuck in my ways
What if I did change
Would I just revert someday
Track Name: Oh, Bird
Oh, Bird
_______
Run around ‘till you find yourself a girl, and you
Settle down, yeah you, settle down
You’ve got everything figured out, so just
Calm down, try and sleep now
-
Oh no, I left you standing there
What a shame it was pouring rain
Oh no, I left you standing there
Perfect teeth on her, she’s on a street corner
Oh no, I left without a care
Burnin' bridges it was, a quick decision because
Oh no, I left you standing there
At least it’s better now
Yeah it’s better now
-
Oh, Bird would you sing me a song, but you’re
Gone now, nowhere to be found
Oh, Bird would ya' put me to sleep, make it
Better now, make it better now.
-
Oh no, I left you standing there
What a shame it was pouring rain
Oh no, I left you standing there
Perfect teeth on her, she’s on a street corner
Oh no, I left without a care
Burnin' bridges it was, a quick decision because
Oh no, I left you standing there
I left you standing there
-
Oh no, I left you standing there
What a shame it was pouring rain
I never thought to even run
I guess I missed the starting gun
All my options have gone away
I guess it’s all so safe to say
Whenever we try and find the truth, yeah
Whenever we win we really loose
-
Oh no, I left you standing there
What a shame it was pouring rain
Oh no, I left you standing there
Perfect teeth on her, she’s on a street corner
Oh no, I left without a care
Burnin' bridges it was, a quick decision because
Oh no, I left you standing there
I left you standing there
-
At least it’s better now
Yeah it’s better now
Track Name: Starting Gun
Starting Gun
___________
Maybe it’s good, yeah maybe it’s good, yeah maybe it’s good

I never run
Now I wait for the Starting Gun, the Starting Gun
Patiently paused
All the cheer team become the clause, no applause

Hard Opinions Often, and ya'
Never let them soften

Why would I stay
Must be something about each day, and the words we say/save
Why would I leave
Everything is free to me, free to me

Hard Opinions Often, and ya’
Never let them soften
-
I’m afraid of, oh what’s underneath the bed
I’m afraid of, I’m afraid of
I’m afraid of, all the words in my head, do you understand?
Yeah
I’m afraid that, I’ll become the living dead
I’m afraid that, I’m afraid that
I’m afraid that, all the words you might of said, will they haunt me ‘till I’m dead?
Do you understand?
-
I just pretend
My whole world is a free weekend, a free weekend
Poolside chair
We’ll soak in the sun, feel it everywhere, feel no care

Hard opinions often, and ya’
Never let them soften

Maybe I’m wrong
Nothing good ever last that long, soon it’s gone
Maybe I’m right
Either way, we’ll enjoy the night, enjoy the night

Hard opinions often, and ya’
Never let them soften
-
I’m afraid of, oh what’s underneath the bed
I’m afraid of, I’m afraid of
I’m afraid of, all the words in my head, do you understand?
Yeah
I’m afraid that, I’ll become the living dead
I’m afraid that, I’m afraid that
I’m afraid that, all the words you might of said, will they haunt me ‘till I’m dead?
Do you understand?
-
Maybe it’s good I’m all alone now
Maybe it’s good I’m on my own now
Maybe it’s good, yeah maybe it’s good, yeah maybe it’s good
Maybe it’s good, yeah maybe it’s good
