is your heart set on loving me, baby is your heart set on loving me, baby cause there ain’t much here now left to break but we both know you ain’t that way you didn't want me there so i bailed another fatherless child growing away yearning for family affair a walk in the park with her dad on a sunday morning coming down every day like in a song by double k every day i wake up and find you're gone drink my morning coffee before the dawn leave my dreams scattered and lost I leave my dreams what have i done to make you mad i’m fighting this best way i can to keep us here, light the faith thought i’d never leave while i’m in love cling to that smile that keeps me warm but who’s to say what’s brave what’s wrong gave you all you wanted it's time to fade I whish you loved me more and asked me to stay but we both know you ain't that way

lorries and trucks from afar lorries and trucks don’t look apart driving down the line carrying stuff that picks us up, but mostly brings us down there’s a neon sign “gas food lodging for the night” with a highway through in this godforsaken place no one hardly ever stops used to be a lot filled with trailers 18-wheelers and trans am’s now there’s just an empty field with a view of ghost town from that old photograph in a single bed with the cold piece by my side just keeping watch on the world that disappears right before my eyes someone’s got to do the job used to be a lot filled with trailers 18-wheelers and trans am’s now there’s just an empty field with a view of ghost town from that old photograph

back road 02:57
Back road I`ve been burning fuel for the sake of a chase At the end of the road there’s a place I wanted to stay I’ve been going nowhere but I was going nowhere fast If there’s one advice I can give here it is If you burn it from both sides you burn it in double time That’s all right when you are young at heart If you burn it from both ends you burn it at double speed That’s OK when you’re in need too deep And it all just goes to waste, Candle burns and light escapes You know I’m certain age I don’t want to complain Just prevail I met the old man by the side of the road One of those back roads that I loved to roam I was youngish reckless and fast But I remember every word that he said

cry with no reason every time i’m down and low every time i drag my woe whenever i commit a treason you start to cry with no reason every time i’m out of taste anytime i’m in some waste caught myself in some prison you start to cry without no reason just tell what you do do you recall my obligation or are you just so cruel declaring the war to anyone who never cries with no reason when i find myself in dust and dirt deaf for comfort and alert when i fall like a leaf in the season you start to cry with no reason maybe i’m just not a good seed some kind of freaky breed is it a warning or it isn’t when you start to cry with no reason just tell what you do do you recall my obligation or are you just so cruel declaring the war to anyone who never cries with no reason

gun 03:10
gun i hold tight to this gun this hope that i’ll find in time you still dream that you are mine i’ve been keeping to myself and i held you far at bay you don’t seem to fade away these days i just run home and play honey, come see me tonight there’s some time to make it right slide and hold me, warm my bones make me whole and make me well or just come and break the spell i hold tight to this gun this hope that i’ll find in time you still dream that you are mine

my little girl there’s my little girl i hope she don’t get hurt when i look in those blue eyes it’s like her daddy when he was young short blonde hair and a killing smile when i watch her dance she is my little star and i hope everything will be all right and this moment stays forever on our minds when it’s her time to dance the world there’s a long road in front of her there’s this little girl i think the world of her when she looks up and says i miss my granny on this sunny day short blond hair and a killing smile when she takes the stage she’s just like a star

1000 03:14
1000 yeah, i’m back at the start, too weak to pack take the side road to where i belong they say it’s time to cry, they say it’s time to break take the side road to where i came from thousand archers are waiting for a sign shot me down there is a bridge that i know, lilly’s house to pass i hear them laugh i know it won’t be long dawn will find me on my knees all tamed i hear her say oh honey, you are home thousand archers are waiting for a sign shot me down thousand archers are waiting for a sign give me time

left bank 05:19
left bank it’s way past bedtime here, on the left bank stay with me, out there i’m up to no good while the bright lights of the city make me blind, make me high, a goddamn fool way out way i wasted time now i’m heavy as the moon and i lie beside friends, still i sleep next to you finally it’s heading home my poor old heart you’re still bright shiny star of my misty south was i lost, were my nights all numbered in this town i knew love, solid gold that i once left behind finally it’s heading home my poor old heart you’re still the bright shiny star of my misty south
10.
safe way home I’ve been around to welcome you back to this old place that we used to know i drove for an hour i’ve waited for years for my little girl to come back home and it’s been way too long i was happy to see you go to try to make it on your own and now i’m glad you’re coming back and it’s been way too long there’s just one little thing tired and weary can’t find the way home not even if you stay and never leave time passed this place is gone can’t find a safe way home
11.
surprise 03:01
surprise it wasn’t quite a surprise to find out we ain’t gonna have a home after all but to spent the loneliest time in the world with you of them all it was and the phone doesn’t ring anymore i care less each and every day great friendships come and go like everything just fades away in the end when the sun comes up i barely notice i’m all strung out red sunset comes so fast it’s time to get wasted again and again used to be sweet and tender place it used to be so long ago now I’m just an odd guest i guess somebody you used to know
12.
whispers 03:12
whispers i’ve been in hiding two years come this fall oh, i tried, i tried real hard and it’s breaking my heart imprisons my time, wakes me from my sleep i’ve been standing still cause memories refuse to die and it’s breaking my heart imprisons my mind, whispers in my sleep it’s not about if i can rest my head at night it’s that morning every time and it’s breaking my heart imprisons my mind, whispers in my ear
