Track Name: So Hard
Why does it have to, be so hard to stay, wrapped in your loving arms this way?
Whisper all your sweet words in my ear, and tell me that I'm crazy too.

Oh, oh darling don't let me go
Oh, oh darling don't let me go
Oh, oh darling don't let me go

Why does it have to be so hard to say, that we care for each other in a good way?
I'll sing all my sweet songs for you to hear, and I'll tell you that your beautiful too.

Oh, oh darling please say don't go
Oh, oh darling please say don't go
Oh, oh darling please say don't go

Won't you say, Oh my love, don't go.
Track Name: Oh, Horsefeathers
Oh my love, oh what a day, you've been telling me, to go my own way.
What if my way leads back to you, what if this dirty roads dead, what are we going to do? What are we going to do?

Oh horsefeathers I'm so confused, you've been telling me you love me, now your telling me we're through. And I am so tired, and I've been yelling, I feel on fire, I feel on fire.

Oh Henry, you broke my heart, and you've been doing me wrong, so don't you start. I know it's done, it's as good as dead, but I'd follow you, anywhere that you said, anywhere that you said.

Oh horsefeathers, Oh horsefeathers, Oh horsefeathers I would follow you, anywhere that you said.
Track Name: Little One
Oh, oh little one you are the only one, I have ever wanted.
Oh, oh little one you are the only one I have ever needed.

And there you go, walking down the road with your shoes off, in the middle of the summer heat.
And there you go again, pulling me in like you always do, making it so I could never leave.
And now my hands are tied, tied with the thought of your big brown eyes

Because you loved me, well.
Because you loved me, well.

Oh, oh little one you are the only one, I have ever wanted.
Oh, oh little one you are the only one I have ever needed

And now you've got a fever, for what you've never had.
And I know, oh I know that you've got it bad, you've got it bad.

Because I have loved you well
Because I have loved you well.
Track Name: October
This tensions like fire on my skin, and you keep pushing pushing it,
this night air it feels so good here, we need, need it to breathe.

Oh, oh ,oh oh oh

It might as well rain, thunder and pour, cuz were not picking ourselves off the floor, and no ones going to say what they need, so we will stand still, yah we will stand still here.
And we will stand still, yah we will stand still for years

Oh, oh, oh oh oh

It might as well rain, thunder and pour, cuz were not picking ourselves off the floor, and no ones going to say what they need, so we will stand still, yah we will stand still here.
And we will stand still, yah we will stand still for years
Track Name: Take Me Out
This is the love that will, end up breaking my heart, you yelled at me out on the porch, don't lie I know it will, don't lie I know it will.

This is the love that kills, a man like you and a woman like me, how far does it have to go, how far does it have to go?

Take me out on the town, I want the heat from the street to comfort me, I want to drown in the sound of all the people, I want to drown in the sound of all the people.
I'll put my best dress on, and I'll yell everythings fine everything is fine, but I cant look at your face in this light, it hurts me so it hurts me so, it hurts me so it hurts me so.
x2

Take me out on the town, I want the heat from the street to comfort me, I want to drown in the sound of all the people, I want to drown in the sound of the city, I want to drown in the sound of the city....
Track Name: Come Home
The sun is rising and the land is bare, its been a long time since we settled here, and my back is surely about to break, cuz our love honey is a lot to take.

The days move so slowly now that we are here, I go to sleep angry and i wake up in tears, and we tell the time by the fallen trees, that came with the icestorm that put you on your knees.

So come home, come home, I'm tired and I'm cold, I'm tired and I'm cold when your gone.

The howling winds keep me up at night, reminding me of mountains back when things were right, and I'll meet you down down at the shore, and i'll tell you that i love you and i'll love you even more if you just..

come home, come home, I'm tired and I'm cold, I'm tired and I'm cold when your gone.

You like to pretend that things are well, maybe you beleive it its hard to tell, and maybe I'm crazy and maybe I'm blind but i know its worth fighting with my heart on the line.

Our young bodies in this bed wont stop trying until were dead, and we'll keep marching this love song till there's a knocking at the door and death comes along

come home, come home, I'm tired and I'm cold, I'm tired and I'm cold when your gone.

Our young bodies in this bed wont stop trying untill were dead, and we'll keep marching this love song till theres a knocking at the door and death comes along

come home, come home, I'm tired and I'm cold, I'm tired and I'm cold, I'm tired and I'm cold when your gone.
Track Name: Lovely Girl
the winter sun, it won't seem to come, and though it hurts my eyes, i don't seem to mind, but its your favourite part so i don't want to start, so I lace up my skates and put on a good face.

And the coffee's burnt, its been on for too long, and my tongue it hurts, cuz we keep talking talking,

But your friends on the stairs, he's yelling for you to come home, he doesn't think I'm fit, he doesn't think I'm a lovely girl.

And its a grey, grey day, and the winds in the park, and your walking me home from a bad night, after dark.

But your friends in the road, he's yelling I told you so, she is going to steal your soul, she is not a lovely girl.
But your friends in the road, he's yelling I told you so, she is going to steal your soul, she is not a lovely girl.
She is not a lovely girl, She is not a lovely girl.
Track Name: Chapel
This apartment's damp and old, and my bed could chill your bones, and your arms could rub me warm, so get over here, get over here.

This could be the worst mistake we ever made, but you wrote to me this evening saying I could use a man, use you.

This could be the worst mistake we ever made, but I answered you this evening saying I could use a man, use you.

This apartment's damp and old, and my bed could chill your bones, but we ain't going to the chapel, going to get married, we ain't going to the chapel, going to get married. So don't be afraid and don't be scared we ain't going to the chapel just get over here, just get over here.
Track Name: Take The Streets
Holding up our walls it takes all that I've got, it breaks our back and tears our limbs is it really worth it? So tell me now, should we tear it down, is this something we can handle? Oh I'd hope so don't say no, I've got a lot more left in me.

So let's take the streets, see what people need, make some kids and keep em safe, hold on tight through every night, these walls will see us both go.
So let's take the streets, see what people need, make some kids and keep em safe, hold on tight through every night, these walls will see us both go.

This place has got what we've always wanted, why don't we stay, we'll lay in the dark let the changes start we are loving in a dirty way.
But I'll take my heart with it's faults and i'll keep you with yours, we will lay in the dark let the changes start and wait for the door to close.

So let's take the streets, see what people need, make some kids and keep em safe, hold on tight through every night, these walls will see us both go.
