Track Name: Penny Drop
been so long it’s hard to tell
hard to tell just how i feel
too long on the carousel
too long on the ferris wheel

i get drunk in the evening just to pass the time
can make a man recede into his criminal mind
i think about leavin’ a straight life behind
dark thoughts manifest in my chest sometimes

c’mon now, you know what i mean
it aint where you’re goin, it’s where you been

aint got forever and that’s no lie
i never ran too fast or flew too high
i guess the simple things are fine and true
but i can’t make ‘em add up to you

c’mon now, you know what i mean
it aint where you’re goin, it’s where you been
c’mon now, you know every river bends
and every river at the ocean ends

i got this rumble underneath
it’s broken hearts and it’s broken teeth
stained my shirt and crashed my car
stole my money from the money jar

but i wont let it take me down
i got some friends and my hometown
all waitin’ for that penny-drop
all drinkin’ beer and smokin’ pot

c’mon now you know what i mean
it aint where you’re goin, it’s where you been
c’mon now, you know every river bends
and every river at the ocean ends

been so long that it’s hard to tell
hard to tell just how i feel
Track Name: Watching You Fall
Breaking our hearts
Watching you fall
Swinging your darkness
Like a wrecking ball

Breaking our bones
Under your wheels
Sinking like stones
That’s how it feels

Watching you fall

Seeing the dust
Settle like snow
Over your footprints
Watching you go

You’re disappearing
On the horizon
What are you hearing
Is it as frightening

As watching you fall

All I wanna do is shake you into morning
And loose from the weight you drag
From the pain you feel and the pain that you are causing
But you aint waving no white flag

Swing on a shoestring
Beneath your burning bridge
Watching the water
For things that you did

Just let ‘em go babe
I love you like blood
Deeper than the ocean
Stronger than the flood

You’re breaking us all

All I wanna do is shake you into morning
And loose from the weight you drag
From the pain you feel and the pain that you are causing
But you aint waving no white flag
Track Name: Great World Atlas
i can’t get no rest here
i move with my head down
lord knows that i done my best here
and i tried not to let you down

but there’s a kind of emptiness here
it takes more than what i got
it’s bigger than the land i’m standing on
bigger than the oceans that I crossed

i curse the great world atlas
i curse the shining sea
and all that equals the distance
between you and me

I had love like a mountain
I had love to spare
12 months 11 days & 3 hours but who’s counting
now the miles and the minutes are all we share

i curse the great world atlas
i curse the shining sea
and all that equals the distance
between you and me

they say I got my mothers heart
they say I got my father’s fire
in my mind I draw a line straight home
going right across the sky

i curse the great world atlas
i curse the shining sea
and all that equals the distance
between them and me
Track Name: Old Stones
she drove over the crest with old stones in her chest
round the corner into her hometown
wearing a new dress looking such a pretty mess
your little princess pawned the jewels in her crown

she knows she let you down
burned her bridges to the ground
but in the ashes she found
her way back home

she remembers these nights the familiar old street lights
and the trees that she climbed as a child
parks her car upon the stones with an aching in her bones
she’s frozen at the bottom of the drive

she knows she made you cry
with her promises and lies
she had a hole somewhere inside
but she can’t remember why

time is gonna drown the memory of it all
she knows she let you down too many times to recall
from the cradle to the grave - we’re gonna rise we’re gonna fall

she drove over the crest with old stones in her chest
round the corner into her hometown
wearing a new dress looking such a pretty mess
your little princess pawned the jewels in her crown
Track Name: Green Ginger Wine
when we’d go fishing you’d drink green ginger wine
working on the tangles somewhere in your mind
drinking green ginger wine

you’d sit there staring out across the lake
i’d get the feeling your old heart was about to break
i’d watch you go
sinking down below the water line
nothing else could steal you away
like that green ginger wine

there was no use asking you and no use trying
man you used to get so mean if you ever did catch me crying
so i’d just bite my lip
and i’d pray for that line to slip and come to life
and you’d just sit there holding that cup
asking me to fill it up
full of green ginger wine

too much line between us now to ever put it right
funny how the days just fly away into the night
i’m drinking green ginger wine

find myself staring out across the lake
i get the feeling my old heart is about to break
nobody knows
where it is that i go in my mind
nothing else can steal me away
like that green ginger wine.
Track Name: Travelin' Bone
stood out on the street by the corner store
my hometown don’t remember me no more
I used to steal my cigarettes from there and drive around
this town never looked so pretty then as it does now

honey break my travelin’ bone - tell me that i’m home
curse my ramblin’ heart - for keeping us apart

time ain’t on my side no more
i know that ain’t gonna change
from the stars down to the ocean floor
there ain’t no escape
from the slipping and sliding away

say the air up here is gonna do me good
and the wrong i done is gonna fade
and if i spend my time with the stone and wood
maybe i could turn my shadows in to shade

honey break my travelin’ bone - tell me that i’m home
curse my ramblin’ heart - for keepin’ us apart

time ain’t on my side no more
i know that ain’t gonna change
from the stars down to the ocean floor
there ain’t no escape
from the slipping and sliding away

time ain’t on my side no more
i know that ain’t gonna change
from the stars down to the ocean floor
there ain’t no escape

and i love you now, more than i ever will again
Track Name: Take Your Time
take your time baby take your time
i know it’s heavy but you’re doing fine
aint no dust trailing from behind
these waiting shoes

find your feet baby cut your teeth
i’ll be waiting down on easy street
when the straight life’s got you beat
you can come on home

we’ll shoot holes in the sunshine till we sleep
live our lives on promises
that we aint ever gonna keep
a little time on the wagon then you’re back out on the street
baby i got what you need
down here where you came from

take your time baby take your time
smoke your cigarettes and drink your wine
when you’re ready put your pain with mine
we can sink it down

we’ll shoot holes in the sunshine till we sleep
we can live our lives on promises
we aint ever gonna keep
a little time on the wagon then you’re back out on the street
baby i got what you need
down here where you came from

take your time baby take your time
you could get a job and tow the line
but i’ll be somewhere in the back of your mind
you can count on me
Track Name: Waiting For Ghosts
hanging round on street corners
waiting for ghosts
feeling mean and leaning drunk
against the lamp posts

with my nicotine and wine stains
whiskey weed and loose change
i can’t feel anything
i can’t feel anything

first time that i saw you
in your cotton and curls
you had your guitar on
singing that song
about a lonely small-town girl

you said you had that travelin’ bone
that we’d never get no blood from this stone
and this was not the kind of ship
that you planned to go down with

you said baby don’t you want to run
they can chase their tails honey
we’re gonna chase the sun
you know if we don’t we’re done

you’re big dreams weigh too heavy girl
big dreams is all they are
like a hollow moon - a broken river
a fancy stolen car

i was anchored to my foolish pride
so i watched you as you found your stride
left me waiting for my ship to come in
left me waiting to feel anything

i’m just hanging round on street corners
waiting for ghosts
feeling mean and leaning drunk
against the lamp posts

with my nicotine and wine stains
whiskey weed and loose change
