You & I 03:23
Some other time in another life you and I will get together once in a while and it'll all be fine just you and I Time's got a way of making of making itself a little bit harder on everyone else and I don't know why yet still we try Then we talk again and tell ourselves that one more chance and everything's gonna be alright but looking back we both knew that over is what this was coming to Then we talk again and tell ourselves that one more chance and everything's gonna be alright but looking back we both knew that over is what this was coming to Got a picture of you I keep to myself reminding me of all the time I spent trying to hold on trying to hold on But now 3 years went by and I think to myself what would I have done with somebody else and what comes to mind? how lonely am I Then we talk again and tell ourselves that one more chance and everything's gonna be alright but looking back we both knew that over is what this was coming to Then we talk again and tell ourselves that one more chance and everything's gonna be alright but looking back we both knew that over is what this was coming to ooh ooh oh

Sarah 03:50
Well we sit on the porch with a drink in each hand Looking so sad and dazed Forgetting all the lessons that we learned in our youth yet making the best of our days And round about midnight the sky is still blue It lingers like the smell of cologne For those who live life by romantic ideals I guess love just means being alone Well Sarah goodbye it's no harm done We were just worried and young well I wish that I had said what I meant and I wish you had meant what you done Well babe it took guts when you tried to smile in the marble hall of the college When you watched me walk out just turning my back on the institutions of knowledge and the tears you cried were for all of us who fold in the face of emotion your mouth was a river your eyes like a wolf that revealed the whole spectrum of motion Well Sarah goodbye it's no harm done We were just worried and young well I wish that I had said what I meant and I wish you had meant what you done I still have that picture from the one time that we embraced in our own tangled beauty Lord I'll think of you fondly in the back of my mind when I make it out to New York City Well Sarah goodbye it's no harm done We were just worried and young well I wish that I had said what I meant and I wish you had meant what you done Yea I wish you'd meant what you done

Nowhere 03:33
Something's going on that I can't explain something like a fever something like a fire burning through my veins It seems like I may not find my way out this time turn another corner to a dead end street and try to run out on my mind I gotta go I gotta go Nowhere It seems like it's been so long since I didn't have to look behind To know where it is I came from who's still there to call mine Every hour of every day like another mile away What if the hands don't stop and there's no time to say that I had to go I had to go Nowhere Now I'd like a little time alone to ease my mind and try to find out where I've gone where I've gone Now I know there are lessons that I've left to learn I gotta find my way back over bridges that I've burned so give me a direction point me back to the road For taking all the right turns something I'm not often know I don't wanna go Don't wanna go Nowhere Now I'd like a little time alone to ease my mind and try to find out where I've gone where I've gone

How Long 02:48
Got a world of trouble honey on my mind You're a world of trouble and I'm just a satellite It doesn't feel like I'm moving No I get no farther from you Now the Earth is a mother and the moon's just blue So how long, how long til all my love is gone God I'm gonna go down to Texas gonna try to unwind Gonna leave whatever I can leave behind stop down through Denver see a girl I know Well she broke my heart but that was such a long time ago So how long, how long til all my love is gone You could've been such a pretty memory before I drove it through the mud sometimes it seems to me that time is only out for blood God I walked you to the graveyard and I listened to you pray You said that everybody gotta have some kind of faith in some way Well sad people get lonely other people get free Everybody's gonna hurt you no matter who you decide to be So how long, how long til all my love is gone God I woke up in the morning with thunder in my head and I wish I hadn't said whatever it was that I said There's moonlight on the water and the ships out at sea Gonna leave my love for you as an unheard masterpiece Gonna leave my love for you as an unheard masterpiece Gonna leave my love for you as an unheard masterpiece

There I've watched another year go by One more time the Winter comes to find I'm trying trying to do it right Times I've been known to run and hide times I've known enough to say goodbye This time I hope I do it right How long can this go on How long can I hold on Last night suicide seemed the sweet solution in my mind now I find it seems a drunk man can't decide Can't make up my mind One more glass of wine one more dream one more line about what life's done to me who will I blame it on this time All the mistakes times I've been wrong and all the wrong roads I've been down Still I wanna turn it around How long can this go on How long can I hold on Last night suicide seemed the sweet solution in my mind now I find it seems a drunk man can't decide Can't make up my mind Last night suicide seemed the sweet solution in my mind

Satisfied 04:16
Well there's no one else around Lord I think I'll go downtown If it's all around you take it If it's all around you break it And I can sit and have some tea or just get drunk whichever's free Well if it's all around you take it If it's all around you break it And I've never been this satisfied No I have never been this satisfied No no no Well I've got a woman in my head that only wants to see me glad Well if it's all around you take it if it's all around you break it And then one that's in my bed that just don't wanna see me sad Well if it's all around you take it If it's all around you break it And I've never been this satisfied No I have never been this satisfied No no no Now the one thing I always knew Lord it's just a part of you Well if it's all around you take it if it's all around you break it Now I'm watching every move because I have to know it to If it's all around you take it if it's all around you break it And I've never been this satisfied No I have never been this satisfied No I have never been this satisfied No I have never been this satisfied

Country Song 02:44
Why won't you tell me what's on your mind I've seen that look before and I know you've been crying You try to lie try to hide the tears in your eye But I've learned to recognize when you're down when you're down You can't keep it all inside that's what I've heard before it's harder to practice than to preach a heart can be paralyzed by a story someone tells and I know that I've told one or two I never meant to hurt you I never meant to hurt you I never meant to hurt you Oh oh oh oooh oh Now and then there were times when I was wrong but that don't mean we can't go on Oh I oh I oh I I never meant to hurt you I never meant to hurt you I never meant to hurt you So why won't you tell me what's on your mind I've seen that look before and I know I know you've been crying

We're a little frayed around the edges but the fabric's still good I should've learned to swing a hammer Cause now I'm just knocking on wood My father used to tell me he'd rather be lucky than good and if you see my mother tell her I did the best that I could And everywhere that I go is just leaving Knowing I've never known what need is But you learn quick when you're alone that the best you can do now is breaking even And honey I I need it Well I think about John Henry on days like these at least he had the benefit of seeing his enemies I push it till I'm weak but I can't spot the machine Tell Jerry he can take the Mossman when exhaustion takes me And everywhere that I go is just leaving Knowing I've never known what need is But you learn quick when you're alone that the best you can do now is breaking even And honey I I need it We're a little lost a little older and the money's not there I'm seeing my past and future in the same rear view mirror But at least the sun is soft and the road is clear It's coffee and a handshake and I'll see you when I see you And everywhere that I go is just leaving Knowing I've never known what need is But you learn quick when you're alone that the best you can do now is breaking even And honey I I need it And honey I. . . I need it

Phone Lines 03:23
Come on take a walk with me and tell me who do you love cause I know I know I'm not the one you're thinking of anymore anymore Georgia in the Summer time will make you go insane I know oh I know cause I almost forgot your name when I saw that red-headed girl I know something's going on and you try not to explain or is it just that lonesome feeling coming on again you've got something you won't say through phone line or mail Try you try you try so hard but sometime the wheels won't turn all the mistakes we've made you know another lesson learned Come on sit down with me before we go another round looks like one of us is gonna have to lay this down tonight oh tonight I know something's going on and you try not to explain or is it just that lonesome feeling coming on again Now I know what you wouldn't say through phone line or mail

World of War 04:01
From Coney Island to San Francisco Bay how my mistakes seem to follow You take the high road I'll take the low Maybe we'll meet up tomorrow Cause kindness is the currency of the free and the poor there's nothing in this whole wide world that she can't afford She gives me love that don't beg for more a little peace in a world of war Well I've got some old flames that still burn No matter how far I roam But I'll keep yours lit in the window of my soul in case you can't find your way back home Cause kindness is the currency of the free and the poor there's nothing in this whole wide world that she can't afford She gives me love that don't beg for more a little peace in a world of war Oh oh oh Love You're long gone Oh oh oh Love is long gone The kind of rest that I receive in your arms is so strange and pocket watch rare If I couldn't put it down in a song I'd gladly cut off all of my hair Cause kindness is the currency of the free and the poor there's nothing in this whole wide world that she can't afford She gives me love that don't beg for more a little peace in a world of war A little peace in a world of war A little peace in a world of war
