Track Name: Here Are The Problems
Wait, half your heart stays with me if you're sorry
Stay, do your part. You are for me...
You are the last piece

You've already gone

CHORUS:
I'm trying to get you
to stop you from running

If you aren't sure who I am,
you don't hear me
And if you leave now I might die
no I'm not lying

I've already lost

I'm trying to get you
to stop you from running

Come find me
I'll stop wanting you
You're leaving Never seems to go through

I'm trying to get you
to stop you from running

It's our dream, it's our life
It's only a weakness

Here are the problems I've gone looking for
Here are the answers I can't get to you
Here are the problems I've gone looking for
All of the answers are what's left this year
Track Name: My Own Sinking Ship
What will be your story now?
Today it's something far inside
Hurt your body close your eyes
And I'll bring you back to here

You are my own sinking ship
Cause every day the current shifts
And I picked apart your wasted lies
To get you back to here

CHORUS

Oh it's the last time we'll fall in love
Oh, it's the last try to break apart
You are not to blame

Why can't I just be alright?
Why can't I invade your mind?
Some days we're just so far off
But I want you back right here

Oh it's the last time we'll fall in love
Oh, it's the last try to break apart
You are not to blame

I can't remember your last smile
I think I made it happen though
Then I took you off to work once more
But I just want you here

Oh it's the last time we'll fall in love
Oh, it's the last try to break apart
You are not to blame
Track Name: Making My Life
How did we all of a sudden manage to fall apart?
I wouldn't wish my troubles on you or anyone else
I've tried my best to best to be honest, to keep this thing moving along
And every time I haven't, you helped me to see things as they are

Ooh, everybody's got something don't they?
Ooh, keeping them together

CHORUS

For me it's you, it's you
We both know that it's true
I've looked deep in my heart and back to my childhood
You're making my life so easy

Is there still time to change your mind?
What's gonna change your mind?

Ooh, everybody's got something
Ooh, keeping them together, don't they?

For me it's you, it's you
We both know that it's true
I've looked deep in my heart and back to my childhood
You're making my life so easy

One way or another, we live for each other
You're making my life so easy
Track Name: Old
I'm fine
You're fine
We're fine
So fine
Track Name: That's Some Dream
There's a time in our lives to start again on writing our parts
As the story goes on, it's the rule that we remember our lines

I know everyone would want me to say that I'm not afraid to be alone

CHORUS

I'm gonna live I'm alright, I'm gonna die it's alright
I'm okay

There's a place in my head that must be called the super motel
I can stay the whole night and think about the girl in her shell

I know everyone would want me to say that I'm not afraid to be alone

I'm gonna live I'm alright, I'm gonna die it's alright
I'm okay

...that's some dream
Track Name: Sneaky Louise
Sneaky Louise, sneakin' around the house
We caught you looking for jewelry
Are you looking for something to sell?

Don't you know that we've been wondering how you got this way
and wondering why it's been so hard for you to believe in what we're saying
Why is it so hard for you to believe in what we're saying, Louise

Sneaky Louise, you shouldn't be on your knees begging us for money
Next time we're gonna have to let go

Don't you know that we've been wondering how you got this way and when it'll end?
Mom and Dad don't know what to do
Why must you make them choose between their life savings and you?

Why is it so hard for you to believe in what we're saying?
Why is it so hard for you to believe in what we're saying?
Sneaky Louise, we aren't having fun, we're scared for you
Don't you know that things are going to change if you want them to?
Track Name: Get Some
Even your losses can't count for anything
Painting your crosses to look like other things
All of your best thoughts can't seem to find a home
It's harder to fight them when you can't get one alone

CHORUS

It's something that your mind won't let them be
You feel it inside, you're not that free

Even salvation can cost you everything
When all your temptations just leave you settling

It's something that your mind won't let them be
You feel it inside, you're not that free
Track Name: While I'm Away
All night, all night
I thought of you, I always do
At times I fantasize
You know I miss making love to you
I always do

While I'm away from you

I miss your warm hips
I miss your soft kiss
And what your green eyes do when I'm touching you

So please don't forget me
I would wish for you but you won't come true

While I'm away from you

Every night I turn out the light
And I dream of you I always do

Hold tight
We have to enjoy life
As long as you're what I'm coming home to the skies are blue

While I'm away from you
Track Name: Woody's Hood Boogie Woogie
We're going out tonight so we can clear our worried heads and shake some dust off
We gotta get up every day at eight and see the whole day through
With no time to waste
You know I've heard terrible things but nothing near as close to home
and nothing oh so sad

It's got me thinking
I'm hoping that won't happen to us

I just can't believe he lost his lover and his child
Both in the same day
Now his baby's gone to heaven and his wife has lost her mind
It's a damn shame

Let's go drinking
I'm hoping that won't happen to us

Should we go down to church on every Wednesday and Sunday morning
to be on God's side?

I've been thinking about living life my way
And the truth is that we all get burned some day
Track Name: My Name's Sorrow
Follow me back like a ride on a train
Make it hard to remember the cold
Take care of your money and stay out of the rain
Your bones can give out when you're old
I get more of a feeling from words that have truth
A feeling like something is wrong

Let the door slide open, let the sunlight in

Call my name girl, Sorrow

All of the times that I heard you sing out
I'd hope there were parts there for me
I'd sing all the notes that stay out of your way
We can let all those melodies free
I think I was meant for an uglier time
My harmony's all out of tune

Let the verse slide over, let the chorus in

Call my name girl, Sorrow

We'll be out of the dark when the seasons pass
But you have to live now or you won't
Put your gloves on your hands, wear your winter skin
Cause it's over before you say August
All your friends will await your return

With their car doors open and their radio on

Call my name girl, Sorrow
Track Name: World Watching
I knew this was a dream, I suddenly awoke
I wonder if they could see, the world is watching me

CHORUS

Got to keep moving
Got to keep moving on
Got to keep moving on

It's good to know you're here for me
You'll see

I hit a bump in the road
It's shaken thoughts in my soul
I'll keep my guilty hands clean from now on
The world is watching me

Got to keep moving
Got to keep moving on
Got to keep moving on

Whatever good may be
I make it up as I go
A leading role In a silent movie
The world is watching me

Got to keep moving
Got to keep moving on
Got to keep moving on
Track Name: I Should Go
Kiss me, she said
Don't let this moment pass you by
You missed me, she said
But I only closed my eyes for a second

Let's forget about tonight, and think tomorrow
I can only think of reason why I should go
But I should go

Don't leave, she said
It seems she can't make up her mind

Let's forget about tonight, and think tomorrow
I can only think of reason why I should go
But I should go

I'll see you tomorrow
I should go
Track Name: Thinking Of You
I'll go back home and think of you
