He felt just like invention Straight out of Phoenix flame But he knew all along he'd always be the same He took off on the highway Went as far as that car would drive Never got nowhere and he's got nowhere to hide He had no momentum She was leaving him behind She's a dollar he's a dime

I have dreamed upon your floor That I found the love I lost I have rested on the rocks Of rivers I had to cross I've been fed by all my friends Though I've already wept a creek I've learned many a secret handshake And I've held many a weary soul to sleep Somebody take me home While I still believe While the pines are still the pines And there's something left of me I have gambled with the years Held a few hands of tenderness I was king once for a day Before the queen laid me to rest I've been sober on Bourbon Street Wasted on my wedding day I've seen the eyes of my love When there was nothing left to say Somebody take me home While I still believe While the pines are still the pines And there's something left of me I have danced with gypsy girls Who sang a spell into my ear I've seen every United State And I have rocked a newborn babe I built fires to burn through the night Had to put out some that burn too bright Swam in the bayou while drinking rum I've waited on saviors who didn't come Somebody take me home While I still believe While the pines are still the pines And there's something left of me

Come and go with me I will show you what I see In those mesmerizing eyes There aint no way to know Just how lucky we will be Unless you come and go with me So many worldly woes That we all come to know Even they must take a backseat sometimes Won't you ride along Maybe try to prove me wrong Honey, come and go with me Come and go with me Play the daisy to my bee Let's go map this countryside There aint no way to know Just how lucky we will be Unless you come and go with me

Lucky One 02:50
Take your time We got no place to run I will be your lucky one Slow on down I promise when we're done I will be your lucky one Pretty face carry me off someplace And run me through before I go and break in two When I die and fly into the sun I will be your lucky one When I am old And beaten like a drum I will be your lucky one When the children grow And leave us years to come I will be your lucky one Pretty face carry me off someplace And run me through before I go and break in two When I die and fly into the sun I will be your lucky one
5.
Lay Me Down 02:02
I don't know but I believe I might Make my bed where you sleep at night Lay me down I don't know but I believe you could Break my heart and you surely would Lay me down Got no money got no love Put all my faith in stars above Lay me down Every last woman I loved I lost One by one I paid the cost Lay me down
6.
I may fade into the night Or fall in a world of sin I may drift clear out of sight And never be seen again But I will still be your man I may steer right for rocks And be dashed upon the shore When I'm wind battered bones And sing your songs no more I will still be your man My heart will finally bust And my eyes will lose the flame When my dreams are only dust And no one recalls my name I will still be your man I may fade into the night Or fall in a world of sin I may drift clear out of sight And never be seen again So I will hold my baby tight Until the evening ends When we wave goodnight And never meet again I will still be your man I will still be your man
7.
You are not the one I gave my heart to You are not the girl I knew But I thought you should know Today I fell in love With a woman With a woman With the woman you've become We've been woken up from a wonderful dream We get let down so easily But I thought you should know Today I found someone She's a woman She's a woman She's the woman you've become You're my sweet beautiful, my darling bride You're my baby's mama and my friend for life But I thought you should know Today I gave you up For a woman For a woman For the woman you've become I thought you should know Today I fell in love With a woman With a woman With the woman you've become

Cupid's Gun 02:58
I shot a man with Cupid's gun Now he falls in love with everyone He got a broken heart and a duct taped shoe Look out he'll fall in love with you Don't be the one Don't be the one Staring down the barrel of Cupid's gun He limps around with a makeshift soul A jug of wine and a bullet hole He keeps kerosene burning bright For the chill in his bones at night Don't be the one Don't be the one Staring down the barrel of Cupid's gun He's worried blue and all deadpan A walking shipwreck of a man He got a brick of gold and a tire swing But lord knows it don't mean a thing Don't be the one Don't be the one Staring down the barrel of Cupid's gun I shot a man with Cupid's gun Now he falls in love with everyone

I tried to say ok And maybe we could someday You shook your head and smiled But that's gonna take me awhile By now you should know I'll never let you go I'll only let you down This was our darkest year Shot through with talk and tears I saw your brown eyes dim a shade And your warm complexion fade By now you should know I'll never let you go I'll only let you down I don't care where we are Or that we've come so far I only know today You still take my breath away By now you should know I'll never let you go I'll only let you down

Them Eyes 03:40
Them eyes them eyes are the only thing I see What I'd give to have them eyes on me Storm rain on the campfire Drunks are crashing the church choir Them eyes them eyes are the only thing I see What I'd give to have them eyes on me Gunshots on the lakeside Cloud cover rolling over the moonlight Them eyes them eyes are the only thing I see What I'd give to have them eyes on me Summer love winter tears You went on without me babe but I'm still here Them eyes them eyes are the only thing I see What I'd give to have them eyes on me What I'd give to have them eyes on me
11.
No April Sun 03:14
No April sun No darling someone The days all hush now And go by like clouds I hope it's ok To come to you this way The shepherd's afraid And the wolves have it made The night's gotten fierce And won't tolerate the tears I hope it's ok To come to you this way No April sun No darling someone But I won't mind at all When the trees fade in fall So it's ok To leave me this way
12.
So you're breaking down All the walls you found You scheme and you pray Your best won't go away You move for a spark In the cold soaked and dark And you burn as you run From all the things you've done You thank God above For everything you loved Now you see oh you do What this life cost you There's fear in your eyes That your sun will never rise And you hope what you find Is worth all you left behind When you wake up wake me too Take me away with you Take me away with you Take me away with you
