Going Away 04:12
2.
Alone 03:41
You love your reflection in my eyes, Magnified three times your natural size. And once I take you to that place, You let me go. And I wish you'd leave me alone, Why do you leave me alone? No one will ever be enough for you, But you might just be enough for me. You are my bad news, You are my worn-out blues.
3.
No Way Out 03:26
You're the light in the trees And when you left me I don't know that I was surprised And I'm afraid there's no way out. A new moon shines through my window, And you know I can't sleep. So I said, ‘Don't lose your mind, whatever you do.' Cuz I can't watch you fall I can't watch you fall away. And I find myself atop the stairs, And I ain't said nothin'. No, I ain't said nothin'.

Lay You Down 03:45
Suburban kids commune with the city over radio While I'm overwhelmed by the words on every window. Words on every corner, I see words on every window. And we're always late, We're always hurried. We're always worried we won't make it to the end-- Oh, but I see the end. It's when I'll sing Hallelujah, Oh, and I'll pull you in, It's when I'll sing Hallelujah, Oh, and I'll lay you down. And the leaves are falling down again, They're fallin' down. And the world comes apart, I've seen it happen time and again. But I'll find you in shade, Like the trees that rise above it. Oh, you rise above it. And we've seen our lives played out on stage, And we're tired of pressin' forward, Tired of pressin' on. And I'm tired of movin' forward, Wanna stay just where we are.

Winter 04:14
It was coffeeshops and whiskey We were floating down the Ohio River . We were singing for strangers, We were headed down the highway, I said I'm packed up, I'm ready to go. But then the shops filled up And I couldn't remember why I came Cuz I'm sick to death of winter and I'm sick to death of you It was all night parties and The summer streets at night, It was the end of the world And we knew it But then the moon caved in In all your yawning glory And I said maybe I'm just Tired of being underwhelmed And I see you're still doing That big country show. And meanwhile my touchstones Have faded in and out and I said Baby, I'm just no good, no good for you

Last Call 04:16
7.
Danny 04:18
Run, run, Danny, run If you can hear me calling, won't you come back home Cuz you've been down for too long And I wish that we would want what's best for us, But you and me, we just won't get it right.. It's our underage pretension, We're not sold on anything And I would be ok if I could just slow down. And you would be ok if you could just come down, Cuz you've been high for too long And I guess the blind just follow the blind, But it would ease my worried mind If my eyes could rest on you for a while And we could pretend we were small again And we could pretend your life is not the mess it is. And I could pretend I could hide away, Oh, I could pretend I'm not worried all the time, Cuz I been troubled too long
