Track Name: Bad Dream
you say those words now, so that you can sleep
tell yourself this is another bad dream
tidal waves keep crashing as the tap leaks
you hold your breath waiting for the release
it's just a bad dream

you tell yourself you're tired
keep making the same mistakes
the light outside, is creeping in the doorway
every little secret
you tried so hard to keep them
keep them all from screaming out
black birds circle your head
and you want to forget
it's just a bad dream

how much hurt does it take
before your bleeding heart will break
no words can erase
the wound it will remain
it takes grace to forgive
but only time can heal
I want to believe
It’s just a bad dream
Track Name: Maybelline
you're tired, Maybelline
tired of the lights and the scene
all the places you've been
on the covers of magazines

she says "I hate it here"
why you give yourself to something if you don't care

it don't matter what road we're on
let's get a million miles away from here
it really don't matter we'll leave this town
and get a million miles away

oh my dear Maybelline
works seven days of the week
reading the words on a screen
tired of the people she meets

she says "I hate it here"

it don't matter what road we're on
let's get a million miles away from here
it really don't matter we'll leave this town
and get a million miles away
oh come on

Maybelline
Oh Maybelline

she says "I hate it here"
so why you give yourself to something if you don't care

it don't matter what road we're on
let's get a million miles away
it really don't matter what road we're on
let's get a million miles away
Track Name: Summer Moon
is life what you'd imagined
when we had nothing else to frame it in
nothing left to find now
no roads less travelled than the one we're on
and I know we're going nowhere fast
you can't move forward til you learn to act

there's a sorrow hanging in the air between us
leaves me wondering when it was you stopped believing
I'll say goodnight my friend
and try to carry on
say goodnight my friend
goodbye under a summer moon

you know I saw it coming
always saying how you won't look back
and though this storm may come to pass
you won't get nothing til you learn to ask

there's a sorrow hanging in the air between us
leaves me wondering when it was you stopped believing
I'll say goodnight my friend
and try to carry on
just say goodnight my friend
goodbye, goodbye

well we didn't know it gets harder
that the wind always comes
staring up at those clouds, well the clouds keep moving on

there's a sorrow hanging in the air between us
leaves me wondering when it was you stopped believing
I'll say goodnight my friend
and try to carry on
just say goodnight my friend
goodbye under a summer moon
Track Name: Foot of Pride
why, do you keep asking why
the colors you paint have run dry
no rhythm in your head
no music in your eyes

walk with that swagger you mock
act as if nothing is wrong
now what's got into you
I don't see it like you do

the names may change, and your face
is feeling like a stranger's
can't see for the fear that you hide
that you would be discovered
when you fall before the foot of your pride

mistake all those rumors for news
the difference between them is truth
the poison is the same
in that bed that you have made

you talk in the language of songs
sing it, but the feeling is gone
the damage has been done
you’re not fooling anyone

the ones that you're trying to please
won't pay you on attention
the maps that you're trying to read
won't give you no direction
and you'll fall before the foot of your pride

the taste of love once sweet
but you wouldn't need her
just one drink, one more
could make you a believer
but you'll fall before the foot of your pride
Track Name: My Century
hands like leather
from working in the weather on the family farm
though I was still young
when we moved into the city where the factories are
it was years later when the radio playing
said the war had been won
and we were going home
I was the lucky one

walking into the middle of a mystery
though I don't know if I'm ever going to get to see
my century, my century

well I seen it all
before planes and malls
use to send letters, now the telephone calls
the carriage and cart, to the freeways and cars
even done better, sent a man to the stars
and we keep moving on
what are we running from?

walking to the middle of a mystery
though I don't know if I'm ever going to get to see
my century, my century

if you find a lover, then treat her like no other till the day that you die
and when you get to my age
I hope the lines on your face are something you wouldn't hide
but these days you got no patience to wait
so busy tryin' to get old
and I wonder what for
I wonder what for

can't see the skin for the bones
not many people I know live to a hundred years old
my friends have moved on, all my sisters are gone and I'm ready to go
and when my funeral comes, can you bring your guitar
and play my favorite songs
my favorite songs

and then he walked out into the middle of the mystery
talking about going home
and I don't know if I'm ever going to get to see
my century
Track Name: Drifters
oh let it fall
this mountain over me
caught under the weight of every song
I'd ever sung to you

love is not
such common knowledge I
see it your eyes that summer smile
it lingers on, tonight

I, walk down to the water
I, wash it over me

morning comes
clothed in her golden light
quieting the whispers of the night
it leads you home, singing
la de da day

standing there
we came with clouded eyes
how could we know that love it moves in tides
and you and I, drifters

I, walk down to the water
I, wash it over me
I'm coming through a valley, Lord

when you're lost from the shore
and you're caught where the current runs strong
if you're drifting in doubt
and your heart knows the distance is long
there's a hurt in her touch
but you need it as much
as you need anything in your life
