Track Name: Old Tired Bastard
Old Tired Bastard

I'm an old tired bastard but my body is still young
Trying to run from all that went wrong
But my blood would rather run thin

All ye sinners all ye faithful
Why can't we all agree on love?
No more killing in vain or in Jesus' name
I plead we all just fall down

Down

Sell me down the slow river
Make sure I'm worth my weight in gold
Try to realize revenge ain't no prize
Every soul is worth its toil

All ye tired all ye weary
Just let your body fall down
There's no shame & nobody would blame
An honest man who's been knocked down

Down

I'm scared and I'm alone
But don't you pity me
Me feet have found solid ground
And they will carry me

All ye worn out all ye waiting
The river's pull is strong
Unfold your hands and swim for land
Lest the water pull you down

Down
Track Name: Hesitating Hands
Hesitating Hands

Softly and sweetly… you’ve brought me to my knees
Laying still at your window… fluttering eyes and touching feet
Playlist upon playlist I’ve heard them a thousand times
Somehow in this moment I hear them in a different light
I get a little nervous when I hear the creaking floor
I know we aren’t alone but it doesn’t matter anymore
And tomorrow I know it’s different when we pass at the door
And my heart still jumps though it’s torn

Give me an answer he said
I never meant to make you sorry though I have
And these bright city lights still remind me of the night
Your hesitating hands… brushed up to mine

I’m afraid to let the world hear my songs…
To sing them aloud and to be heard wrong
So when I hesitate please know it’s not your fault,
It’s just a wall I’ve built up strong and tall

And my total lack of tact has worn me to my core
Ashes upon ashes… a thousand cups on my porch
And my ignorance has swept across my paling heart
Adorned with a thousand fixtures to be there… forever more

Give me an answer he said
I never meant to make you sorry though I have
And these bright city lights still remind me of the night
Your hesitating hands… brushed up to mine

I’m at your window and on your front porch
In your bedroom on the floor
I’m an island and I’m still and silent
I never meant to bring you here


Track Name: Like I Do
Like I Do

if you never felt the pain
of being the one to blame, my love
you’d never feel the rain like I do
or love the way it washes over you

but you’d never fear love like I do
and what it does to you
you’d take shelter from the storm until the morn

if you never felt safe
if you never gave all you coulda gave to love
no one could rip the pavement right out from under you
the ground it would stay right under your shoes

but you’d never feel love like I do
and what it does to you
you’d never walk on air you’d take the stairs

your silence is worse than your hate
please don’t ever make them wait for the truth
I know exactly why you hesitate
please just communicate

and you’ll never fear love like I do
and what it does to you
every day you will say come what may
Track Name: Long Winter
Long Winter

It was a cold day back in September
You wanted to walk outside to feel the sunshine
on your face, but you took to a cold,
and I didn't notice. I never notice
these days

Don't go away
It'll be a long winter
If you don't stay
Yeah it'll be a long winter
If you don't stay

Well winter came the very next day
She stole your footprints from when you walked away
and I was OK because the springtime blossoms
filled my thoughts on a city bridge
with the sunrise
Track Name: Water Veins
Water Veins

Oh My God, is it raining again?
Down on me, all around me.
Water veins the glass.
And I can’t see you very clearly.

All the ghosts in my home
throw voices like stones.

Oh my God, the spitting wind.
Come back again, it brings the cold in.
These rattling panes won’t last.
They can’t keep you from getting near me.

All the ghosts in my home
throw voices like stones.
Track Name: If You Really Knew Me
If You Really

You can sing me love songs 'till you’re blue in the face.
You can tell me the color of my eyes, but never know what I think.
You can send me roses, and I'll just let 'em die.
You can write me letter after letter, and I'll read 'em with dry eyes.

Cause I cannot have what I want,
I cannot give you what you need.

I feel like I've lost enough sleep, I did my penance paid my dues.
For the things that I said to you were not always true.
I've lost faith in feelings...love, hate and anger too.
And I don't know when I lost everything maybe the day I lost you.

But I cannot have what I want,
You cannot give me what I need.

Cause if you really knew me, then you would know,
The things that consume me, is everything I know.
So don't try to change me,
It won't come easily at all.

'Cause I cannot have what I want,
You cannot give me what I need.
