Track Name: Jefferson St.
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
Track Name: A Cat Caught In A Tree
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
Track Name: Candy's Dream
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
Track Name: How Do You Like Me Now
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
Track Name: J. Falcone
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
Track Name: Waking Up In Oregon
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
Track Name: Life Is Beautiful
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
Track Name: Communion
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
Track Name: Folky Family
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
Track Name: I Hate To Say Goodbye
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
Track Name: Empty Spaces
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
