Track Name: November Out of Tune
Now that it's over there's something I never knew
How to say
All I ever wanted for us
Was a summer's day
To feel the breeze move so easy through your
Chestnut hair
To breathe your perfume as it flirts with
The morning air

My sweet November, spring is coming soon...

To swing on your porch, sharing a glass of
Sweet tea
To hold your hands, cupped and full of
Beauty
All I ever wanted for us was the promise
Of a summer's day
All I ever wanted for us was
A summer's day

My sweet November, spring is coming soon...
Track Name: Please Don't Ever Say Goodbye
I kiss her mouth in waves
Her hair falls down in waves
And I don't want to say
Goodbye

I am unsure these days
Please don't bewilder and don't surprise
Please don't ever ever say
Goodbye

Don't ever say goodbye
Dont' you...
Track Name: Gravity
I'm so afraid of falling she said to me
I'm so afraid of falling endlessly
Sometimes I need to feel the ground beneath me
And so you long to feel gravity
And so you long to feel gravity

But gravity only holds you down
Gravity only pins you to the ground
I want to feel the clouds brush against my face
I guess all I want is to feel free
All I really want is to feel free

Then for a moment we lie there silently
Until I whispered but without gravity
Everything would drift apart
Then we would fall endlessly
We would all fall endlessly

She pulled my lips to hers
Perhaps to shut me up
Or to feel the ground beneath her lips
I swear I felt clouds in our kiss
Track Name: Blind Willie on the Radio
While my love clings to the ground
I'm high above with the covers strewn
And lungs worn thin from breathing in her smoke
And her seldom worn soul
Sometimes at night I wonder why I don't cry
I never do
Sometimes I wonder why I never cry
Anymore, anymore...

Everything's all right, and I don't sleep
Anymore, anymore
Everything's all right, and I don't sleep
Anymore, anymore

Dark was the night
Cold was the ground
I'm high above with the covers strewn
In jeans worn thin from breathing candle smoke
And her seldom worn soul
Sometimes at night I wonder why I don't cry
I never do
Sometimes I wonder why I never cry
Anymore, anymore...

Everything's all right, and I don't sleep
Anymore, anymore
Everything's all right, and I don't sleep
Anymore, anymore

(repeat)
Track Name: My Only You
I'm never bored
I know just what to do
I'll just think about you

And when I am sad
When I'm feeling blue
I'll just think about you

And when I get lonely
Will you be my only?

Oh will you be
My one and only
My pretty dream come true?

Then I will be
Your one and only
Your one and only too

When you get lonely
Don't be
Just think of me and know

Wherever I am
Whatever I'm doing
I'm thinking of you
Track Name: Still Fretless Star
You think I'm ok
When you look my way
I don't see what you see
I don't feel that pretty
You're the one that's pretty
You're so much prettier than me

So why are you frettin' over girls in a magazine?
You should know by now
You mean everything to me
You mean
Everything
To me

You think I'm ok (you think I'm ok)
When you look my way (I don't see it)
I don't see what you see (and I've been looking to)
I don't feel that pretty (I don't feel it)
You're the one that's pretty (so fine)
You're so much prettier than me (smokin' smokin' hot)

So why are you frettin' over girls on TV?
You should know by now
You mean everything to me
You mean
Everything
To me

ooh baby yes you mean
Everything to me...
Track Name: So Simple
(love is simple)
Or so I'm told so sweet next to me
Go to sleep, go to sleep
When it's so cold outside late at night
Close the door, turn out the light

And you never will (stand tall by your side)
It's enough to make this cheatin' heart beat still

It's all I want to sleep by your side
Close your eyes, close your eyes
Can you be as warm as you seem
If it's a dream don't wake me please

And you never will (to sleep by your side)
It's enough to make this cheatin' heart beat still
Track Name: Swingset Dancer
My swing set mistress isn't home
Long distance dial tone on the telephone
She's dancing somewhere so far away
I'll save her words for another day

I want to ask her why all men fear
The sex goddess of the western hemisphere
I'm not afraid I'm just a little alone

But my swing set mistress isn't home
Long distance dial tone on the telephone
She's dancing somewhere so far away
I'll save her words for another day

Round and round my sweet dancer twirls
It's funny how streetlights paint a different world
I wonder how they would shimmer in your gown
I wonder why I'm still in this town

My swing set mistress isn't home
Long distance dial tone on the telephone
She's dancing somewhere so far away
I'll save her kiss for another day
Track Name: To Sleep Slowly
Kissed kissed to sleep slowly
My back exposed to the naked air
It's still cold and full of ghosts who
Accuse me with their stares

If I get scared
If I get scared

My eyes burn with hours
Sometimes with years before you
If I'm sad and tired
It's never because of you

If I get scared
If I get scared
I'll just reach for you and pray

Pray you're always there for me
Track Name: A Murder of Crows
For her for her despite everything
Another dirge despite everything
Another last song despite everything
For her I would I would I

Pour myself onto the paper
Pour myself into the air
One last time before I do it again
Before she swallows me whole

And I should find religion
To replace the faith I've lost
And I should try to stay honest
For her I would I would I

Pour myself onto the paper
Pour myself down to the floor
One last time before I do it again
Before she swallows me whole

My only crime is I loved too long
But is that wrong, is that wrong?

The quiet doesn't bother me
The still that rests upon your hands
Your hair, your breath
I want to ask and for you to ask
Do you? I do tonight
Thought the air feels heavier on our whispers
As the words grow in meaning
So touch my hands, my face, my lips
The quiet is enough for me
It's filled with you
With...

Again again I'll dream again tonight
I'll watch a murder of crows drive
A murmuration of starlings from the sky

And I'll chime like a bucket full of marbles and bells
As another something beautiful dies
And I know it's me
Sometimes I know it's me
Track Name: Watch Me Fall
No matter what I do
No matter what I say
No matter what I do
Things just work out that way

Watch me fall
Watch me fall
Watch me fall
And catch me
And catch me...
Track Name: Goodnight
Listen child put down your shotgun
I've been alone too, lonely since dawn
Put down your shotgun
There's no moon in the sky
Tonight's not a good night to die
No tonight's not a good night to die

Put down that bottle my child
You know you still love Jesus despite all your trials
Put down that bottle
You know you can't pray a lie
Tonight's not a good night to die
No tonight's not a good night to die

Still somehow that razor shines bright
Throw it away child, you won't need it tonight
Put down your razor
Soon the storm will pass by
You can't go without saying goodbye
No tonight's not a good night to die
No tonight's not a good night to die
Goodnight
