Track Name: Born Of The Woods
We were awake before the window's call for the sunlight to fall and spill across my floor, warmly licking at the boards. And so the room was dark, but for the light of the parking lot, when for work she arose and gathered up her clothes. She gave me a kiss then walked on out the door. She was born of the woods. She was born of the sky. She was born of the trees. And, in the winter on the north side of Chicago, she was born unto me. It's been two months, it's been two months and it feels like I'm always sleeping when she's around. She's gotta go to school. She's got to work late, and I've got to work in the morning. And, my guitar is a full-time job. And so the room is dark, but for the light of the parking lot, when for work I arise and look into her eyes. I give her a kiss, then I close the door behind. She was born of the woods. She was born of the sky. She was born of the trees. And, in the winter on the north side of Chicago, she was born unto me. She was born of the woods. She was born of the sky. She was born of the trees. And, in the winter on the north side of Chicago, she was born unto me.
Track Name: Stuart Nelson
So early in the morning you could call it night, when me and my wife, from Idaho, came driving by a little Illinois city off I-74. Pulled over for gas and nothing more, and as my wife was in the restroom, a man came up a-crying. With his eyes on the ground and not on me, walked into the station with his eyes still astream. Bought himself a gas can. His car musta broke down. Buck-fifty for gas to get him back into town (Yeah-heh-hown). So, why'd you do it, Stuart Nelson? You want the world to feel your pain? Could they not see your insides, so maybe they'd see the flames? You know your parents loved you, but they could not carry the weight, so five years after Zeller closed, your life you chose to take. And, you burned, burned, burned as you left this world today. Yes, you burned, burned, burned. At least you left it in your own way. It's not an isolated incident. We're isolated constituents. Too busy in our houses to share our lives with those around us. With what happened next, I had to rub my eyes. Could not believe a man could be so resigned as he poured that death all over himself. He had had no car, nor no fear of hell (Yeah-heh-hell). And, as he burst into flames, he made not a peep, just crossed his arms and fell to his knees. And when the reporter asked me, "Sir, what did you see?", I said, "I saw his pain. I think that's what he was sharing. It's not an isolated incident. We're isolated constituents. Too busy in our houses to share our lives with those around us. It's not an isolated incident. We're isolated constituents. Too busy in our houses to share our lives with those around us. So, why'd you do it, Stuart Nelson? You want the world to feel your pain? Could they not see your insides, so maybe they'd see the flames? You know your parents loved you, but they could not carry the weight, so five years after Zeller closed, your life you chose to take. And, you burned, burned, burned as you left this world today. Yes, you burned, burned, burned. At least you left it in your own way.
Track Name: Bathe In The Rays
Rebecca has a wry smile. Crawls right up her face every once in a while. And, there I'll make my home, curled up to her cheekbone. Yeah, she has hair up in a mess. As she's crossing the street to me, I confess, I wouldn't have it another way. It's her pretty face that lights my day. So, just stay. Smile at me some more. I'll bathe in the rays. I think of you too much when you're away. And, Becca has a sleepy smile. It's sheepish and unguarded when she's in my arms, piled upon her chair. I just want to stay there. So, just stay. Smile at me some more. I'll bathe in the rays. I think of you too much when you're away. The wind blows and the snow falls. In these filthy winters, you have to rise above it all, with huddled kisses and alcohol. Romance is the only thing that make this city warm... Warm at all. So, when she calls me on the phone, I'll drop anything I'm doing. No, I'm not a desperate soul. Just found a woman worth pursuing.
Track Name: That Ring
That ring that rests on your hand, is keeping me from speaking like I'd like to to you. And, I'm not coveting. I'll make no moves. 'Cause, oh, Sweet Thing, I've made that mistake before. And, who wants someone who would go for that? Something so easily gained is so easily lost. Yes, who'd want someone who'd go for that? Not me. No more. And, that ring is a beautiful thing. No, it's not the polishing, but a promise that you're keeping always. And, it's a sting, but it's no great pain that the sight of you gets my mind a-drifting away. Who'd want someone who'd go for that? Something so easily gained is so easily lost. Yes, who'd want someone who would go for that? Not me. No more. Not me. No more. Not me. No more.
Track Name: Devil Between
There came a knockin'. There came a knockin' at her door. There came a knockin' at nearly 3 in the morn'. It was another man in love with her. And, she was frozen, but her bed was warm. Yes, she was frozen with her first love at the door. He had come with a surprise for her, but her surprise was that her bed was already warm. And, she cried, "Please go hide, my Baby. Please go hide, my Baby. I can't have you here. My first love is here. The way he loves me, you ought to be scared." And, Baby said... Yeah, Baby said... Baby said... Yeah, he said, "I don't bow to no devil. I don't bow to no God." And, she said, "I don't bow to no devil. I bow to my first love." But, Baby cried and cried, "There must be a devil between us." And, her Baby's been in love since day one. Yeah, her Baby (had) fallen in love with her song. But her first love (had) come before. So, her Baby lost before he'd even spoke to her. And, she cried, "Please don't cry, my Baby. Please don't cry, my Baby. I can't stand your tears. I can't stand your tears. Got enough weight in my life without you being here." And, Baby said... Yeah, Baby said... Baby said... Yeah, he said, "I don't bow to no devil. I don't bow to no God." And, she said, "I don't bow to no devil. I bow to my first love." But, Baby cried and cried, "There must be a devil between us." Between us. Get to clappin'. Then, she asked her Baby, "Why do you love me, oh, so much? Y'know you'll only bring pain and trouble to the both of us." Then, her Baby said, "When it came, it just was. Now, I ain't afraid of no devil and I ain't afraid of no God. But, I cried and cried, 'There must be a devil between us.'"
Track Name: True Blue
With one look at a widow, who's never married another man, you can see that she loved one. She's still holding his hand. And then, look at a husband, who's been sharing his bed. The sweetness of perfumes that float where he rests. And, I've been wanting to marry. I'd like to make me a home, for I fear I will carry life's burdens alone. And, I met one who loved me, the color of nude. True Blue, former lover, I still love you. But, that husband's a bastard, so I cut him right through. Yeah, I cut out his tongue first, for he was speaking of you. Now he lies buried in the earth and the dew, his head in his hands first. He was crying for you.
Track Name: Musta Been A Ghost
Musta been a ghost. I must have been an empty man 'til I took a breath and filled right in before your eyes. They're blue and grey like the winter skies. But, there is summer in your smile. There's Texas in your talk, and as the hours pass... Yes, as the hours pass, I hardly notice them at all. Hardly notice the hours pass at all. She makes me think that I will not die alone - that I will die contented that I not only lived this life, there is honor in how I've led it. So, it seems so scheduled. It seems so perfect that I climb into the van right now and cross the country, creating a barrier between us two. Well, I hope it serves you, for I'm an empty man 'til I take a breath and fill right in before your eyes. They're blue and grey like the winter skies. But, there is summer in your smile. There's Texas in your talk, and as the hours pass... Yes, as the hours pass, I hardly notice them at all. I'll send you flowers from Long Island. Send you yearnings from the parking lots. And, from my corner of every room, my thoughts will be first of you, and how the only place I wish to be is pressed up to your body. Well, I hope it serves you, for I'm an empty man 'til I take a breath and fill right in before your eyes. They're blue and grey like the winter skies. But, there is summer in your smile. There's Texas in your talk, and as the hours pass... Yes, as the hours pass, I hardly notice them at all. I hardly notice the hours pass at all. Hardly notice the hours pass at all. Hardly notice the hours pass at all. Hardly notice them at all. Hardly notice them at all. Hardly notice them at all. Hardly notice them at all. Hardly notice them at all.
Track Name: 2nd Story Cody Court
I didn't wanna leave that place. I didn't wanna to leave that time, but I did for some lousy rock'n'roll songs. And, she said, "Move along. There are things that friends don't do when friends are gone." Second story Cody Court is the highest floor I've ever been on, with my voice raspy and her voice lasting long into the dawn. It's all I wanted all along. Tiny fingers like a child's hands plucking that guitar. Those copper-coated strings just seem to sing to her. Oh, my tiny mockingbird. Second story Cody Court is the highest floor I've ever been on, with my voice raspy and her voice lasting long into the dawn. Second story Cody Court is the highest floor I've ever been on. So, blue-grey, tiny baby, don't you take, oh, too long to grab the phone and give a call. One night, one night, one night just don't feel right. One night, one night, one night just don't feel right. 'Cause she's needy, she's greedy, and she's been wanting more of the boy who waited three years for one night in hopes of many more, because he means well, thinks she's an angel, and though he might be wrong. Ain't nothing wrong with people believing that you can be, oh, so strong. One night, one night, one night just don't feel right. One night, one night, one night just don't feel right. One night, one night, one night just don't feel right. One night, one night, one night just don't feel right.
Track Name: Path For Walking
You are a good woman, and I am a good man. I know, it may not seem so at times, but I am. And, I don't see the sun rise, and I don't see it set. When I worked in the mornings, I'd be in the kitchen before Sol's first steps. And, now working nights, I'm in the kitchen when Sol turns out the lights. Sweetheart, if I hadn't found the love of song, then maybe the abundance of money or time would find us high atop a mountain in a leisurely state, just hiking and fishing away the days. In a leisurely state. And, by the picture window, I'd lean into your ear and say, "I know what could have been, what could have been, what could have been. And, I know the path I chose is not the only path for walking. So, here I am, just as I am, just as I am and here you are, just as you are. You're beautiful. You're beautiful." But, it's been a long time, and I just don't feel the way I used to about life. Days wore me down. My loves have jaded me. I'm keeping it all outside. My heart can't take it, but I try. Oh, do I try. And, as my father said, "Son, I wish you would have picked an easier life. These failures are gonna get to you, but they're not your fault. Yeah, that's right. Well, if you pick something that knocks you down, you better stand and fight." I know what could have been, what could have been, what could have been. And, I know the path I chose is not the only path for walking. So, here I am, just as I am, just as I am and here you are, just as you are. And, I know what could have been, what could have been, what could have been. And, I know the path I chose is not the only path for walking. So, here I am, just as I am, just as I am and here you are, just as you are. You're beautiful.
Track Name: Durango
I want you to be the one thing. You to be the one thing. You to be the one thing that I get right in this life. I want you to be the one thing. You to be the one thing. You to be the one thing that I get right before I die. Before I leave this life behind. When I close my eyes, won't take comfort in a lullaby. Yes, when I close my eyes. Take comfort in the hearts I've kept alight. Kept alight. I want you to be the one thing. You to be the one thing. You to be the one thing that I get right before I take flight into that dark night. Take flight. When I close my eyes, I won't take comfort in a lullaby. Yes, when I close my eyes. Take comfort in the hearts I've kept alight. And, when I close my eyes, I won't take comfort in a lullaby. Yes, when I close my eyes. I'll take comfort in the hearts I've kept alight. Kept alight.
Track Name: Lindsay's Lullaby
Goodnight to my babe. Goodnight to my girl. And, hello to the sun, for once again it's come to light the world. So, pull the shades down and the covers up. We'll lay there in the darkness we've created, our limbs a tangled truss. And, honey, let your lids slide down, like a screen before a film that I've directed to make dreams sweet for you. To make dreams sweet. Goodnight to my babe. Goodnight to my girl. Goodnight to my love all cuddled up. Goodnight to my pearl. And, honey, let your lids slide down, like a screen before a film that I've directed to make dreams sweet for you. Yes, honey, let your lids slide down, like a screen before a film that I've directed to make dreams sweet for you. To make dreams sweet. To make dreams sweet.
