Track Name: Shape & Line
Never made sense to be your friend

I never had a problem with letting this end

Cheap shots come too easy the love too slow

A weight this heavy ain’t hard to release

Don’t mind paying when the prices are cheap

Shots come too easy and the love too slow



And I never had a problem with letting you go



These hands on the wheel don’t look like mine

Seen ‘em before familiar shape and line

But they ain’t gonna do the damage you done

There’s wolves in the woods when the sheep get together

Hounds in your head but now I got your measure

Nothing in the distance I don’t already know



You’re only ever angry or down

You’re never easy to be around

Been too long out in the weather

We’ve been trying to fix this forever and ever



Time ain’t no healer and I ain’t no fool

Ain’t gonna carry your cross or keep my cool

We both know which way this wind’s gonna blow

I never had a problem with letting you go
Track Name: Every Night
Velvet lips speaking truth in the face of liars

Fingertips, trace my name in the sand tonight

Sinking ships, setting all that you love on fire

This is this, to the heavens I turned and I cried

And every night, through the darkness and the light,

We say our goodbyes



Poison gifts, given by the weak to the kind

Timid souls, scratching there mark in the wild

Love is bold, like a child pure as the night

And the cold truth, always gets found by the light

And every night, through the darkness and the light,

We say our goodbyes



And every night, through the darkness and the light,

We say our goodbyes



Silver shines in the corner of my blue eyes,

Punching blind into power and all of it's lies,

To the stupid and cruel, the greedy the fools

Say goodbye tonight

To the golden and true, the light's there for you

Turn your face to the sky



And every night, through the darkness and the light,

We say our goodbyes
Track Name: I Must Be Somewhere
Up here with the moon

There’s so much room

I can feel you

I know that I can’t stay

But I’m up here anyway

Where I can feel you



Down there with the dust

And all that’s made to rust

I never found you

So I’m moving through the night

Like a broken satellite



Just looking for you



It’s all amazing grace

Up here between the space

No one can hear you

There’s no air to carry sound

Like down there on the ground

Where no one hears you



I’m making like a ghost

As I orbit up the coast

But I don’t see you

All the lakes have turned to ice

I miss you in my life

I’m looking for you



Always be looking for you



Wish I was where you are

But I ain’t no shooting star

I’ll never find you

Looking down upon the blue

It’s strange what people do

I’m looking for you



Always be looking for you
Track Name: Nowhere (You Wanna Run)
You were standing in the back of the line

Empty pockets and no peace of mind

You drew the shortest straw they had

Thanked them for their trouble tipped your hat, yeah, you took it real bad



Now there's nowhere, nowhere that you wanna run

Now you've come undone



She decided that you were the one,

You decided you were tired, and you'd had your fun

Now you see that fire burning down

And there's no use in crying cos you're never gonna leave this town



Now there's nowhere, nowhere that you wanna run

Now you've come undone



You were standing in the back of the line

Empty pockets and no peace of mind

You never started, never tempted fate

And all that you learned is there's nothing worse than too late



Now there's nowhere, nowhere that you wanna run

Now you've come undone
Track Name: Heartbreaker
You never broke my heart

You know I always thought you would

I was always looking out for it

You were always looking good

And you never broke my heart



I was always wasting time

All the time on my hands

I was busy making waves for us

While you were busy making plans



And I missed all the signs

Sleeping in the back seat like a fool

You can’t fix a broken wheel, honey

If you aint got the right tools



It aint no way to love you

Like I’m hooked on the fall

I keep on pretending

That I can’t love no one at all



I was always taking shots at you

Honey, more than you could stand

I was shooting for the heart

But you were only shooting cans



And I missed all the signs

Sleeping in the back seat like a fool

Tried to keep it on the rails

But I never really had the tools



It aint no way to love you

Like I’m hooked on the fall

I keep on pretending

That I can’t love no one at all



Photos in a biscuit tin

Boots underneath the bed

Somewhere out there on the wind

Is everything I should’ve said



And you never broke my heart
Track Name: Night Wheels
Standing on the outside

Trying to make it right

Grew up kickin’ at the front fence

And lyin’ awake at night



I always had a notion

Someday I could get to you

My heart held an ocean

For the island i was swimming to



It’ll be the death of me



When I found you

It was beautiful like a song

Something bigger than love came down

I never knew that it could be so strong



So I'm standing on the outside

It all could’ve been so good

It’s strange it’s so hard to change

You know I did everything i could



Gonna drive this car like it’s stolen

Out into the dusty golden

Drive into the great wide open

Forget the way it feels

Let the night fall under my wheels



It’ll be the death of me
Track Name: Everyday, Everyday
ou set your teeth like steel

Inside you are a spinning wheel

It wears you down

You know the lines you know the tricks

Hold it together but nothing sticks

It can wear you down



Follow the heart and not the head

Pretty sure that’s what they said

It can wear you down

Know the truth know how to lie

Get sad and then you get wise

It can wear you down



And you might find me out here if you choose to look

But you’ll never take me back or know how much you took

Everyday,

Everyday



No need to leave a lamp light on

No looking back from where i’ve gone

I won’t be coming round

There was nothing here to leave behind

I’ll keep a diamond in my mind

You’ll never wear me down



You might find me out here if you choose to look

But you’ll never take me back or know how much you took

Everyday,

Everyday
Track Name: Dreamer
Walking on the rails they were shining in the rain

Trying not to break my teeth calling out your name

Dreaming of an end to all the things we gotta do

Dreaming of a life somewhere outside of me and you



Time it is a stealer

Can’t remember how it felt

Only a fool would shoot the dealer

Before the cards were even dealt



Tired of the talk and tired of the game

Rounding up the horses running loose inside my brain

Sent a message in a bottle but the bottle wouldn’t float

There was nothing I could do to fix the holes beneath the boat



Time it is a stealer

Can’t remember how it felt

I’m just a fool who shot the dealer

Before the cards were even dealt



So I balance on the rails

In the back streets of my mind

Fall in and out of place

I shake all down the line

Buckle under my own weight

And recover in my own time



Rattling the cages howling at the moon

Always something I was trying to say and you hanging up too soon

A piece of information somewhere loose upon the wind

Everything I had to give before our love was thinned



Time it is a stealer

Can’t remember how it felt

Only a fool would shoot the dealer

Before the cards were even dealt
Track Name: Gold Rush Blues
A handshake deal by a roulette wheel and a crooked smile

Between you and me and the deep blue sea

They sold us out by the mile

It's the last, the last deal gone through

Leave's you and me with the gold rush blues



A back room scheme, bought sight unseen, selling hope for time

weigh the hours, weigh the cost

By the horizon line

Chasing silver, curse the air, they push on through

There's you and me with the gold rush blues

There's you and me with the gold rush blues



A paper trail, ghost town fire sale, a needles eye

Count their money, pockets full, while you count their lies

Slight of hand, vanished, leave no clues

Just you and me with the gold rush blues

Just you and me with the gold rush blues

There's you and me with the gold rush blues
Track Name: By Now
No sleep tonight

I’m lost in the light

The words rattle under my brow

May be too far gone

To change what I did wrong

Thought I could’ve done that by now



I had a dream

I was chasing like a dog

It was shining like a leaf on a wet bow

I was gonna shake it

We were gonna make it

Thought i could’ve done that by now



Show me the escape

How to cut the tape

I don’t know if I can make it out

It’s on my chest

You always knew me best

I should probably know myself by now



Something’s got to break

How long can I stay awake

The weed ain’t working now

These things can rule your life

If you don’t make them right

But right could never do somehow



Show me the escape

How to cut the tape

I don’t know if I can make it out

It’s on my chest

You always knew me best

I should probably know myself by now



So I’m sitting tight

Outside your house tonight

The words rattle under my brow

Trying to find a line

Back to where you were mine

Thought I could’ve done that by now
