Jefferson St. I stroll so casually Thoughts of you are spinning around An easy beet, light’s come on around the city Thoughts of you are spinning They’re getting lost, swaying to the music in the bars Or window shopping all alone Out of place, just like everybody that I know There’s no better place to be Than Jefferson St. You used to walk with me To watch the houses close their doors Late at night, we’d watch the people walk by Like silent movies on the screen They’ve all gone now, they got what they came for In their hands they hold clear glass jars They say I’ve got the night Now I think I could be alright Well I’m alright but I can’t stand this being alone Jefferson St. put my mind to ease But let me keep these memories Unrefined, I keep them here inside of my Tired eyes, they catch daylight

I'm in love with a dark haired boy Thinks he's got no right to joy Say's he's cursed by the blood he's born to But he's alright with me I see him walking late at night, a cigarette and he steps so slowly In a filed he was all alone and he looked something like a dream If a dream could be, trapped upon the earth A cat caught in a tree The stars were bright on a bitter night Stepped in the graveyard and I didn't mind Dancing slow in the backyard of a stranger and I felt at ease It's been long awaited but I've come to peace I used to walk like a dog wandering the streets but Every dog will have their every day or a moment in the sun What will we do when our day has come A bow on a string, a story ending, I didn't hurt anyone I'm in love with a dark haired boy Thinks he's got no right to joy Say's he's cursed by the blood he's born to But he's alright with me

She says I want to live like breakfast at Tiffany's Do you now, do you now She say's I want to love, I have so much to give But you can, but you can And she wants to cry on the shoulder of a friend where have they gone, all my friends? I want to cut my hair, I want to become you Do you now, do you now I want to paint your face, I want to own you But you can, but you can And I want to play dress up for myself For nobody else, for nobody else I want to listen to the Velvet Underground Smoke a cigarette, while no ones around It's late tonight, I see a light in the window A cigarette, a silhouette Music droning on over the radio She's all dress up, and all alone

I heard a song on the drive Blue eyes crying in the rain I still felt the same Something about that old time heart break The kind to put you out for days The kind to make a grown man change his ways I've been changing for you for a while now, just to hear you say You didn't care for my care free style nor the way I begged for your praise But I think I might have saw you just the other day Crossing over Hawthorne St. babe You noticed I didn't smile and I didn't wave An old friend asked me how I'd been I said I couldn't complain They said I seemed like someone new and the way I've changed is strange Baby it's so hard to laugh at your jokes When my heart is broke I know you have your ups and downs Yeah, you thought that I'd stick around How do you like me now I wake up I'm not feeling lonely I fall asleep I'm not thinking of you So many things they keep me laughing So much beauty it takes up my time And when I cry it's unashamed And it's not because of you babe I heard you walk in when I was dancing I turn the other way Well it doesn't matter much to me now Whatever you might say You walked up and asked for a dance You never thought I'd say Baby it's so hard to laugh at your jokes When my heart was broke I know you have your ups and downs You thought that I'd stick around How do you like me now I heard a song on the drive Called when will I be loved I didn't think about hard times and I couldn't help but smile as I rolled along

Sitting on a rock with a name carved in Somebody's laying under it Things that happen all around don't need me And in the meantime my heart beats See a name that I recognize Thought the date I don't remember Died in 1855, gone forever from my mind But somebody's life was better because of you And it's an awfully strange thing to feel that you don't need me and to know that I need you You're one more rock to sit upon, one more verse for my song And Somebody's life was better because of you Birds up in a crooked tree, looking down hearing me They say that it's an awfully strange thing Such a terrible creature, and still she does sing May our sins be forgiven for we know not what we do, and all we want is just to be with you My my sins be forgiven for I know not what I do And all I want is just to be with you

Waking up in Oregon The faint dim light and the sweet smell of rain In the back cab of the truck, or in the side seat of the van Oh man, it's good to be here again" I'm looking for that old white house Under the watch of spirit mountain I can almost hear my brother's words Hey I love you and how have you been Oh man, it's good to see you again The painted hills, the passing canyons Juniper, and I always want you with me Nothing feels so sweet as leaning on your shoulder On the way back from California, and I want you with me I drew a picture of the mountains in Montana I sent it to my love, I said some day we'll move here when we're older The moon rises over the hill tonight, it never seems to be the same I never thought that I would meet someone like you Tomorrow when the sun is high, I don't know where I'll be found I find I'm blinded by everything I see Baby blue bridge, feeling kind of neutral here You're my baby and you're not near I'm feeling kind of blue Waking up in Oregon The faint dim light and the sweet smell of rain In the back cab of the truck, or in the side seat of the van Oh man

Thought about you, words of poetry The way that you mean everything that you say The way that I know you'll be going away But you still come around Riddles and rhymes, thieves in the night Take what you can from me What I need can't be taken from me Isn't this life, isn't it grand, isn't it just insane Yes, you are my truest of friends Even though you won't be there for me You take a part of yourself and you give it away You taught me how this is true Oh life, life is beautiful A man climbed a telephone wire In the middle of town today He'd seen it all, he'd lived through too much He had no desire to come down again They say they don't know if it was on purpose But I believe that it goes without saying And I wonder what his last words had been We speak for a moment She'd said that she'd known him She asked did she do all that she could Well I think we both knew the answer We both knew that we never do that You pass me by, you don't look in my eye And you might not believe that it's true But I, I would be there for you So isn't this life, isn't it grand Oh isn't it just insane They say that you don't know what true beauty is Until you've felt such pain I saw him slip into the abyss, and I felt I was free from my chains Oh life, life is beautiful A mother of a child, a teacher in a school Revolution leader, a drunken fool Jesus Christ, maybe me, maybe you Well I feel so small and so hopeful too One day at a time, well it's all we can do But our purpose is nothing minuscule And life, life is beautiful

Communion 03:00
You can't take anything with you when you go No regrets, no artifacts, nobody you know Your eyes will lack for nothing when you see The promised land, the open hands, the golden ebbing sea But won't you stay for the time Break the bread, hold the hands and drink the wine Bitter sweet is the night, through glass we see now darkly We will know all things in time Will you call out to your brother when you cross Find me on the other side, oh friend do not get lost Your fears will fall so gently till you're free A job well done, the sweetest song, to live eternally But won't you stay for the time Break the bread, hold the hands and drink the wine Bitter sweet is the night, through glass we see now darkly We will know all things in time

Brother take off your hat, you don't have to wear it anymore Brother take off your hat, you don't have to wear it anymore Brother take off your hat, you don't have to wear it anymore Take it off, come back home Sister what's the hurry you don't have to run away no more Sister what's the hurry you don't have to run away no more Sister what's the hurry you don't have to run away no more Won't you stop, and come back home Momma don't you feel discouraged, you don't have to feel that way no more Momma don't you feel discouraged, you don't have to feel that way no more Momma don't you feel discouraged, you don't have to feel that way no more You don't have to feel that way anymore Father don't you worry I am coming home Father don't you worry I am coming home I've been gone so long, and I was going strong But I forgot what I was going for

When I tell you that you're lovely I hope that you won't think me sly And if I ask if I could hold your hand I hope that you would understand That if you should leave me tomorrow Or if you would tell me goodbye You know that would only bring me sorrow You know I only want to see you only And I, And I, And I I hate to say goodbye If you have felt out of comfort You know if was not my intent I only want you to stay longer Not to bring you discontent And I, And I, And I I hate to say goodbye

Empty Spaces 00:31
Hold your empty spaces a little tighter When you realize she's all that you have And if you love her don't disregard her You've got to guard her and let her know you care
