Track Name: i belong with you
where do we go from here?
where do we go from here?
where do we go from here?
i need to get away from here

if you just tell me no
if you just tell me "please don't go"
nobody needs to know
how i love you so

cause baby i belong with you
ain't nothing wrong about you
i'll write a thousand songs for you
and if they sing along, they'll sing along for you

baby it's in your head
stop spooling up all the thread
for the cuts you're used to sewing
you won't need it where we're going, oh no

cause baby i belong with you
ain't nothing wrong about you
i'll write a thousand songs for you
and if they sing along, they'll sing along for you
Track Name: summer rain
summer rain
drifting down in
summer vain
don't let me let you get away again

spring is gone
but darling i just
can't move on
don't say it's always dark before the dawn
Track Name: live forever
when you were younger did the blistering sun
burn up a trail right down your nose
so did you hide it away for each and every day
thinking you've got to be careful of those

did you run in the street and burn the tips of your feet
drive down the hill, blinking tears out of your watering eyes
and did they tell you no, you've got much further to go,
saying someday honey you are gonna realize

but forget what they told you
throw away what they sold you
babe you glitter, you're gold
and don't you know that you are gonna
live forever
gonna live forever
gonna live forever

don't you know?
Track Name: a song for dirt roads
one night you dreamed we all got happy endings
and when you woke the sky was spitting rain
you walked outside and all the trees were bending
bowing to the cars in the fast lane
bowing to the cars in the fast lane

we start our engines, fly along the highway
we try to catch the sun that's setting fast
we know we're missing each and every byway
but i, like you, am scared of coming last
but you and i are scared of coming last

and oh don't look at your wheels getting rusty
sitting still on side roads, side roads made of glass
i know you feel like your heels are getting dusty
but please just stay awhile, don't let this pass
but please just stay awhile, don't let this pass

but if you reach the harbor i hope it saves you
i hope you turn the engine off and breathe
and maybe you will think of me and everything i gave you
and all the fear and love i kept beneath
and all the fear and love we kept beneath

and oh your wheels they rolled along and never rusted
gouging marks in side roads, side roads made of glass
of all the people i never should've trusted
you were the one i wished would never pass
but you never lingered long, you let me pass
Track Name: smile
never tell
they told you, never tell
they told you, it won't sell in stores like candy bars and plastic rings
never tell
you know, it's just as well
cause when they're counting up the scores you'll find they've turned to hidden things

make delays
make delays
you will let yourself down in a hundred little ways
make amends
make amends
the hundred words inside your head are what the truth upends

and everything you tried
left you unsatisfied
but someone's at the door, put on that smile
Track Name: soldier
open your eyes
I hear the voice you keep inside
and I sympathize
cause it won't let you come untied

open your eyes
you might see the weight you shoulder, oh
never looking up, never looking back,
you'll end up marching like a soldier oh no
Track Name: different this time
When will you ever start again
will you ever make amends
will you ever see the end

i know that

you always held a ball of twine
by the end so you'd unwind
never cared for peace of mind

don't let the numbers deceive you
you count the ones who leave you
and you will never find

it's different this time
