Track Name: I'm in Love, Love
1 I’M IN LOVE, LOVE

I’m in love, love, and it feels so good. And my baby, she loves me too. Yeah, my baby, she loves me too. I bought my baby a ring I couldn’t afford, and she pawned the stone and took me to the liquor store. We got drunk in each others’ arms, making big plans watching the dawn. I’m in love, love, and it feels so good. I never went looking. I had no idea. I’m in love, love, and it feels so good. And my baby, she loves me to. Yeah, my baby, she loves me too.
Track Name: Shake, Pt. 1 & 2
2 SHAKE

PT. 1
Shake, baby, shake. It’s what the Lord built you for. Shake, baby, shake. Til you don’t hurt no more. I don’t mind you running all around town cause you got enough to go around. Baby shake. Baby shake. It’s what the Lord built you for. Take, baby, take. If you won’t hurt no more. I gave you everything I own. Went out to steal you more. I hurt a man in his own home. Shake, baby, shake. That’s what the Lord built you for. Baby, break. Baby, break, and we’ll never hurt no more. I’ll take you in my arms to the other shore. I’ll carry your body to meet the Lord.
PT. 2
Shake, baby, shake. Shake, baby, shake. Mmm, my my my.
Track Name: Please Let Me Go
3 PLEASE LET ME GO

I’m floating down the road on the lightness of my soul. If you catch me, please let me go. I cut a girl off of me, speaking using rusty razors. They found their mark, right in her heart. Meant to graze her. Now I keep walking on, wearing a piece of her heart on my arm. I’m floating down the road on the lightness of my soul. If you catch me, please let me go.
Track Name: I Didn't Mind
4 I DIDN’T MIND

I’ll make the best of what you gave me. Want you to face me when you come. I didn’t mind not believing. Cause every time, you left me some.. I want to sit not fall down. I want to be something. Yeah, I want to be something, baby. With all its cracks and everything. Every face that you gave me. Left me thinking a long time. Who’s that car in your driveway. Made me wait, but I didn’t mind. But I didn’t like the way you put it. How it just rolled off your tongue. I don’t mind what you’re using. You always leave me some. And the best you ever gave me. I couldn’t get from the rest. So I didn’t mind when you made me. Go through with your dirty test. I know where I’ve been. Got a good memory too. Not to say that I put a lot of thought into everything that I do.
Track Name: Lovely Girl
5 LOVELY GIRL

You’re a lovely girl, deserve so much I don’t concede. I can’t get anywhere. I’m stuck here fixing my own needs. But in a meadow, in my mind upon a hill, we’re walking barefoot. You walk ahead and you’re my girl. You’re a lovely girl, so much it makes me feel afraid you couldn’t fit right in the careless world I made. But in a meadow in my mind upon a hill, out on a blanket you took my hand and you’re my girl. What’s given up? What’s giving up? We can see the whole town, every light in the whole town, from here. You’re a lovely girl. I’m gonna try to get to you. If it don’t work out, there’ll just be one thing left to do. And in that meadow in my mind upon a hill, out watching stars fade, you took my hand and you’re my girl. You hold my hand and you’re my girl. Lovely girl.
Track Name: Every Night
6 EVERNIGHT

Go on believing what you heard. But I’d drown in your pain, I’d drown in your pain every night. I’d drink your crying, I’d drink your crying every night. Every night. Go on believing what you said. Go on believing what you hear yourself say. I drown in your pain, I drown in your pain every night. I drink your crying, I drink your crying every night. Every night.
Track Name: You Keep Looking at Me
7 YOU KEEP LOOKING AT ME

I know you meant just what you said, then you realized you didn’t. I’m not holding a grudge. It’s your life and your voice. But you keep looking at me. I know just what you want, but it’s all like you got.. You’re too good for yourself. I’m not much help. But you keep looking at me. Keep looking. Keep looking.
Track Name: Intermission
8 INTERMISSION

(Can you hear it now?)
Track Name: I Can't Find What I Need
9 I CAN’T FIND WHAT I NEED

I can’t find what I need, but I got you. I remember screaming the day I was born. I remember my mother crying when I left her home. I remember realizing I’d spend my days alone, looking for something I’ve always needed, something I’ve never even known. I can’t find what I need but I got you. I got some sunny days. Other times it rains. Some times I think I’m doing the right thing, but I’m doing it the wrong way.
I can’t find what I need, but I got you.
Track Name: Lost Forever
10 LOST FOREVER

Built a rocket to rip, apart on the atmosphere. Never thought much of outer space, with all the nothing out there. Got carsick as a kid. My pa gave me shotgun. Getting sick gets you preferential treatment, but that’s no way to have fun. Lost forever, I’m the only one that knows where I am.
Got stuck thinking in circles, eating chewing gum. Spent my whole day making obligations, building races to run. Go and put a new coat of paint on your underneath. While nobody knows where to score, we’re all playing for keeps. Lost forever, I’m the only one that knows where I am.
Track Name: Dirty Hands
11 DIRTY HANDS

I can’t touch the girl I love. The girl I love, I won’t touch. I can’t touch the girl I love. She deserves it all and I ain’t got that much. I can’t talk to the girl I love. To the girl I love, I can’t talk. I won’t talk to the girl I love. All my words taste so ugly in my mouth. But if I ever make it better, I’ll try to hold her in my dirty hands. I can’t come around the girl I love. Around the girl I love, I can’t come. I can’t come around the girl I love, she only, she only gives me some. But if I ever make it better, I’ll get to hold her in my dirty hands.
Track Name: It's a Shame
12 IT’S A SHAME

It’s a shame getting used to a good thing, baby. It’s a shame getting used to a real good thing. The ones that you love and the warmth that they bring. It’s a shame getting used to a good thing, baby. I miss you so bad when you’re not around, and I can’t put you down. I should, but I can’t put you down. Your ways been leaving stains on my heart, baby. Your ways been leaving stains on my soul, girl. The night that we met, I felt it start. Your ways been leaving stains on my heart. I miss you so bad when you’re not around, but I can’t put you down. It’s a shame, it’s a shame, baby. I love you, but I don’t need you. I don’t get lonely, but I miss you all the time. Come back, baby. Come back, baby. It’s a shame getting used to a good thing, baby.
Track Name: Bulletproof
13 BULLETPROOF

All the ghosts that I know, Still walk around in hell, The ones that left for heaven, Were quick to say farewell. And you know better than to think, I’d let you see me in a hole I didn’t dig. Best left well enough alone, No such thing as far away, no such thing as home. I could fit my whole life on the head of a crowded pin. Leave all my cardboard boxes in the wood box I lived in. Take it up to New York City. Try to call it bulletproof. Get drunk on poison pity. Starve my heart and then cut it loose.
But you know better than to think, I’d let you see me in a hole I didn’t dig. Best left well enough alone. No such thing as far away, no such thing as home. In the days that we got numbered, Indifferent to our wills. I hope I get to see you, and we both got time to kill. Take it up to New York City. We’ll call it bulletproof. Change my worst ways cold turkey. Fill up my heart and keep it with you. You know better than to think, I’d let you see me in a life I didn’t pick. Best left well enough alone. No such thing as far away, no such thing as home.
Track Name: Sweet Lorraine
14 SWEET LORRAINE

I know that I left you, but not a single thing has changed I hate that I love you, but I love you, sweet Lorraine I met some nice girls, not one deserves to speak your name
I hate that I love you, but I love you, sweet Lorraine.
Track Name: We Got the Spirit
15 WE GOT THE SPIRIT

We got the spirit. We got the spirit. Going to bring it home. Come on brothers and sisters. Come on brothers and sisters. We hear you out there.
Track Name: Take Me Home
16 TAKE ME HOME

Just lay your baggage on the tarmac, my dear. Those crooked suitcases bring you to tears. When you going to realize you can just leave it all here and take me home. Girl, take me home. There’s no point in saying sorry. There’s no point in casting blame. Even stupid junkies know time don’t work on shame. I know how we got here, but not why we came. Take me home. Girl, take me home. I might be shallow, but all I want is Jesus thinking I’m a real cool dude. I hope he likes the desperate ways I’m living and my secret tattoo. I just went around the corner and said I’d be right back, but now I’m fastened to these low-down tracks with steel cuffs and steel chains and I keep taking smacks. Take me home. Girl, take me home. I need so bad what I know you’re keeping deep inside your anxious heart. I know full well that everything ends. You know, not everything gets a chance to start. Take me, baby. Take me home.

Thanks.
