Track Name: Move
New morning brings me cold dew

Aching back and I’m missing you

These days, I’m ready too

School house, threshing floor

I had enough and they tell me take some more

These days, I’m ready too

Ready to move on, ready to skip town

Ready to go and come around

Ready to take all we gave back

Ready to move

Evening air holds my breath,

But there’s no guarantee of any life or any death

These days, I’m ready too

Sparks fly in a gasoline tank

As we embark on a boat already sinking (we embarked on a boat ready to sink)

These days, I’m ready too

Ready to move on, ready to skip town

Ready to go and come around

Ready to take all we gave back

Ready to move
Track Name: Jacqueline
Jacqueline, why don’t you tell me what’s on your mind?

Hate getting stuck here all the time

I can’t wait anymore for you

Jacqueline, it’s like you left me out in the rain.

Like you threw me in front of a train

Girl, I don’t’ know anymore what to do

Why don’t you tell me the truth girl?

Is it so hard to do?

Am i just wasting all my time?

All the time i spend here with you

Jacqueline, you sent me all my letters back

You let my vinyl records scratch

And then you let me walk right out your door

Jacqueline, you know this isn’t what I need

‘Cause I know what’s good for me

And I can’t keep coming back for more

Why don’t you tell me the truth girl?

Is it so hard to do?

Am i just wasting all my time?

All the time i spend here with you

Jacqueline, why don’t you tell me what’s on your mind?

Hate getting stuck here all the time

I can’t wait anymore for you

Why don’t you tell me the truth girl?

Is it so hard to do?

Am i just wasting all my time?

All the time i spend here with you
Track Name: Coffee
Me and all your friends you got us

So confused its old news

But what you didn’t see

Is that someone like you should lose your infancy

In a world where I never had you, baby I want you back

As a girl who would never want to, you keep me on track

I’ve got seven days and counting down with ease

Even for old times, let’s go get coffee

Me and all your friends you got us

So confused its old news

But what you didn’t see

Is that someone like you should throw out your Barbies

In a world where I never had you, baby I want you back

As a girl who would never want to, you keep me on track

I’ve got seven days and counting down with ease

Even for old times, let’s go get coffee

Well my head’s not spinning now

Only cause you stand still

With some crème and some coffee grounds

Well I promise you it will

In a world where I never had you, baby I want you back

As a girl who would never want to, you keep me on track

I’ve got seven days and counting down with ease

Even for old times, let’s go get coffee
Track Name: Naive
Don’t text me and wake us up, she told me this morning

Thinking she’d still get her way

But everything that you did right,

You know it died for to me today

‘Cause you hound me and your drown me in what has gone

Can you hear my resentment? Or will you just sing along?

I wish you could see what you’re doing to me

‘Cause I’ve been hurt enough and I’m no longer sorry

A text message breakup after dating four years

Who did I think you were?

But I’m thankful, yeah I’m thankful it’s over

That’s one thing that I’m sure

‘Cause you hound me and your drown me in what has gone

Can you hear my resentment? Or will you just sing along?

I wish you could see what you’re doing to me

‘Cause I’ve been hurt enough and I’m no longer sorry
Track Name: Bluegrass
Well I thought you'd look pretty next to me

Pretty shallow, I’m sorry

I thought I’d have you in the trees

Not the flowers, but good enough for me

Headed up, all was well in Carolina

Spending time every day we talked it out

But then a porch swing conversation sent you spinning

Into orbit and spiraling in doubt

So let's put on some bluegrass and think about it

I’ll read you a romance novel too

Think about what all your friends are saying

It’s only love that's waiting here for you

Now you've gone and gotten yourself in a quandary

You need a man of means to get you to the end

You put your heart out on your sleeve to take a beating

But not a single simple text you'd want to send

As your behavior shocks the likes of all your exes

And pushes them away it pulls me in

I have nothing but clarity around me

And no excuses for adults who play pretend

So let's put on some bluegrass and think about it

I’ll read you a romance novel too

Think about what all your friends are saying

It’s only love that's waiting here for you

My buddy calls you late to talk it over:

"Is this you? Is this who you want to be?"

I sit and write a song anticipating

And get nostalgic for the weekend in the trees

Pretty faces don't deserve to do the crying

Silently you blame it on yourself

But that's not yet the worst of it they tell me

Cause here I am another boyfriend that can help

So let's put on some bluegrass and think about it

I’ll read you a romance novel too

Think about what all your friends are saying

It’s only love that's waiting here for you

It’s only love
Track Name: Transference
Did I give you everything you needed?

Did I shield you from the cold?

Did I take the time to listen

To all the things I wasn’t supposed to know?

Yeah, I know about your childhood

And what your cousin did to you

Don’t have time for your excuses

I don’t make time to play the fool

Well, did nobody treat you right back home?

Did somebody let you down?

Well did nobody treat you right back home?

Put your shoebox back in the ground

I don’t have time for your memories now

Yeah I know what I’ve been missing,

Yeah I know it isn’t you

I’m trying to find something that’s easy,

Not fake the love you’re trying to prove

You think I like to be your counselor?

You think I love it when I’m right?

I don’t like knowing all the answers

Takes all the learning out of my life

Well did nobody treat you right back home?

Did somebody let you down?

Well did nobody treat you right back home?

Put your shoebox back in the ground

I don’t have time for your memories now

I’m not your doctor, I’ll never be

So don’t set your sights on marrying me

Sure I understand you, yeah I know you best

But I’ve yet to find a girl who can handle my head

I don’t have time for all your problems

I’ve got heartache of my own

At least I found a way of dealing

Outside of running or going back home

You found a place for all your feelings

In your shoebox in the dirt

Well you try to express and get it all off your chest

Every day takes a little more work

Well did nobody treat you right back home?

Did somebody let you down?

Well did nobody treat you right back home?

Put your shoebox back in the ground

I don’t have time for your memories now
Track Name: Mr. Radio
When I was young put on the radio

Listen to the world I would become

War and politics command it

Never mind the beating of a drum

My mind, it listened patiently

My ears grew tired of the solemn noise

My heart grew numb to all of it

Now curiosity we must avoid

When it all comes down again

Bear in mind, it’ll come

I won’t know what’s happening,

What’s hitting me, I’m living free

Mr. Radio, please just let me be

I take some time alone to wonder,

Singing through my mornings for a year

Well, curiosity it got the best of me and

Late one night I turned a hopeful ear.

Confession in the driver’s seat

I lost all touch with races to be run

The taste of metal on my lips

And from my mouth I pull a loaded gun

When it all comes down again

Bear in mind, it’ll come

I won’t know what’s happening,

What’s hitting me, I’m living free

Mr. Radio, please just let me be

Good night Mr. Radio, don’t set your dial on me.
Track Name: Olah
Ain’t nobody ever sing to you? Aint you heard that song before?

Your eyes say that you miss me like I spent three years at war

In some forgotten country where they rearrange the dust with carbon bombs

Oh la la la la la la la

I will confess I had my feelings, making small talk on the way

To a lecture class that kicks my ass plus I'm always running late

I make up some excuse to be on your side of town, I call you up

Oh la la la la la la la

Oh la la la la la la la

I refuse to be your Jodi, how dare you tempt me so?

Consider myself gone until you know, I’m not breaking up the married folk

Well I thought I couldn’t have you, now I shouldn’t, now it’s wrong

Every time you leave a message or start a hug that lasts too long

I’ve always been the little straw that breaks the camel’s back, well suck it up

Oh la la la la la la la

Well please don’t make it awkward, your precious room-mate says to me

Well pretty close to over isn’t solid guarantee

'Cause my heart it starts to hurting with complicated love and cold Chinese

Oh la la la la la la la

Oh la la la la la la la

I refuse to be your Jodi, how dare you tempt me so?

Consider myself gone until you know, I’m not breaking up the married folk

I want both of your friendships but Carolina does it right

I’d rather be alone if I can get to sleep at night

Go now to your arms, boys, I call in my retreat

Cause all your double lovin' is double flanking me

Oh la la la la la la la

Oh la la la la la la la

I refuse to be your Jodi, how dare you tempt me so?

Consider myself gone until you know, I’m not breaking up the married folk

Oh la la la lala la la
Track Name: Mediterranean Blues
That girl with the long dark hair

She done tied me to a chair

She cut the rope and sent the boy out on his way

And when that rope it hit the ground

It tied the knot on this little town

She cut the rope and sent the boy out on his way

‘Cause gravel roads can only bring me so far for today

John Henry down the road

You know that he has paid his toll

And his hammer set the steak into the ground

Well that old tractor on the lawn

With the rust where blue paint has gone

Has kicked us down the road to find our way

‘Cause gravel roads can only bring me so far for today

I kiss my momma’s fears goodbye,

I leave the greener grass behind me

And I set off with my baby by my side

Well concrete or marble slab,

We’ve run our 18 laps

And now we can kick off down the road to find our way

‘Cause gravel roads can only bring me so far for today

I kiss my momma’s fears goodbye,

I leave the greener grass behind me

And I set off with my baby by my side

Well concrete or marble slab,

We’ve run our 18 laps

And now we can kick off down the road to find our way

‘Cause gravel roads can only bring me so far for today
Track Name: Land Before Time
What would you do, what if you knew that a pretty girl would love you back?

What would you say?

What would you tell her if you knew that she was listening?

Listening

Well I think that I could love you but I’d never know until we tried

Miles to go before I sleep, but I don’t think that you’d survive the night

You already know so much about me

You already know so much about me

What would you do, what if you knew that a pretty boy had someone in his way?

What would you say?

What would you tell her if you knew that she was listening?

Listening

Well I think that I could love you but I’d never know until we tried

Miles to go before I sleep, but I don’t think that you’d survive the night

You already know so much about me

You already know so much about me
