Track Name: Talkin' At Me
I know you want to sail the seven seas
I don’t know how much I can take
You know I try to see things as they are
I wouldn’t want it any other way

I feel the wind and see the northern lights
Rise up above your pretty head
You say I’ll never get that story right
But I know exactly what you said

“See the pretty people when you just walk down the street
Do you think they’re looking at me?”
I could travel to the four corners of the world
And never miss a word you speak
You’re always talking at me

I hear you knocking’ but there’s no one at home
I’m still pretending I’m asleep
I’ve had my lion share of trouble, you know
And I ain’t got time to sail the sea

But I can comfort you until you come around
Time don’t mean a thing to me
What keeps me wondering is why you come around
When you know what it does to me
This always talking at me

Well, my advice is take it anyway you can
Watch your back and use your feet
Don’t forget to notice where you put it down
And try not to shit where you eat

You could spend a lifetime looking ‘round for mrs. right
But she could be here with me
Or you could start listening to what’s in between the lines
And finally get a good night’s sleep
And just stop talking at me
Track Name: Long, Long Year
I’ve been misled
At first I thought it was something that i had said
I had no idea I was in over my head
I really didn’t know

I tried to reach you honestly
I didn’t think you’d take it out on me
‘Cause deep inside i trusted destiny
I really didn’t know

chorus-
Now I’m standing with my hat in my hand
Trying not to look like half a man
It’s been a long, long year
And it really seems like something’s gotta give

You know I take it all to heart
There’s no other place where I can make my start
I tried and tried and still it all fell apart
I really didn’t know

chorus-

Now I walk these streets at night
Searching through the shadows for something right
I had no idea I’d ever lose your light
I really didn’t know
I really didn’t know
I really didn’t know
Track Name: I'll Tell You Why
I’ll tell you why all the leaves fall to the ground
When the days get short and the heat dies down
I’ll tell you why everything looks as good as dead
And there’s nothing left to do ‘cept to hang your head

It’s very plain to see
It’s right in front of me
And i can’t help but see it in your eye

I’ll tell you why you can’t see the sun at night
But with a patient heart it’s never far out of sight
I’ll tell you why i say the things i do
It’s no great mystery; it’s what i happen to

There’s no easy path to make it back again
So let us gaze upon the starry night

I’ll tell you why all the rivers run down hill
When the rain beats on my windowsill
I’ll tell you why lovers do what they have to do
When the wind blows by and the time does, too

It’s no great mystery
It’s right in front of me
And i can’t help but see it in your eye
I’ll tell you why
Track Name: Lucky 13
Once you put it down can you really let it go
Twice is not enough and you really should have known
Three times is such a charm but such a long, long road
Fourth time you’ve gone too far and there’s no way getting home

Five women working hard, they’ve got seeds to sew
Six men looking on, taking in the show
Seven mountains standing tall, they’ve seen it all before
Eight miles high and getting higher-this train is rolling slow

chorus-
Round and round and round we go
Where it stops, nobody knows
And when we reach the end
Get back on and ride it again

bridge/break…

Nine months waiting ‘round standing by the phone
Ten cents no questions asked, no information known
Eleven tucked away and now you’re all alone
Twelve times out of gas and how the weeds have grown

chorus-
Track Name: Something I Know
I can’t believe it
Standing right there in front of me this time
it seemed so easy
I didn’t see it
Wondering where these half-baked truths of life begin and what to believe in

I know the world keeps spinning ‘round my head
I know the sky is spinning, too
I know my heart’s been broken and it’s up there on the shelf
That’s something I know ‘bout myself
It’s something I know ’bout myself

I don’t deserve this
I bet you even think you’re helping me along - I should be going
It got me thinking
It’s gonna cancel everything I feel alone - change it to nothing

And then the world came tumbling down again
And things got way too hard to see
I don’t always have the answers but my limits I know well
That’s something I know ’bout myself
It’s something I know ’bout myself

early in the morning
before the sun comes up
I stumble in the darkness when I get up
it’s like everything around me
is different than it was
and I don’t know where to fill my cup

it’s like a puzzle
all the pieces very neatly fit that way - now I see it
or more like nothing
‘cause everything turns to nothing everyday - you better believe it

I see the rain came pouring down again
washing everybody clean
how you left me reeling well you could never tell
that’s something I know ’bout myself
it’s something I know ’bout myself
Track Name: To The Sea
Where was the last time
Where could she be
When was the last time
She kissed my cheek

Over the mountain
Under the sun
Down in the valley
Where the river runs

Oh, cross the river
Oh, cross the sea

Ride on the river
There in midstream
Hold to your own course
Ride to the sea

Oh, cross the river
Oh, cross the sea

I know where she’s smiling
There by the bay
Watching the sunset
At the end of her day

Oh, cross the river
Oh, cross the sea
Oh, cross the river
Oh, to the sea
Track Name: Think About Everything
I think about all the times we’d go out walkin’
And talk about everything under the sun
And then you’d turn to me with a different set of eyes
And talk about destiny and the intermingling of our lives
I think about everything all the time, woah..
I think about everything all the time

It’s certainly a mystery what this world has to offer
You’re sitting right next to me with your head in the sun
When I’m looking for answers I’m hardly even there
But I find it difficult to be anywhere
I think about everything everywhere, woah…
I think about everything everywhere

You can’t even be honest with yourself
You say that someone’s put you up on a shelf
Come on down now, it’s time to tell me what’s gone wrong
It’s time to get on with the song

I like sitting and dreaming and taking care of myself
I think about you sometimes, but it’s so hard to tell
If you’re coming or going standing in the middle of the stream
Or if you go run and hide or come on to the extreme
It’s a beautiful mystery what everyone wants
And I think about everything all at once, woah…
I think about everything all at once
Track Name: Who You Are
Come on little baby, I got something for you
And now I’m gonna tell you what I’m bound to do

chorus-
I wanna thank you
I wanna thank you for who you are
You might think you’re a bright shining star
But I know who you are

I climb up on the mountain and what do I see
A bunch of wise men looking down their noses at me
chorus-

I know you since the day you were born
I remember you in the mirror
I remember you on the floor
But I can’t keep track of these faces you put on
Tell me before I leave so I know who to call

Well I went down to the grocery
Just to get me some bread
You started playing dominoes
And messing with my head

I believe when i sense trouble
There’s something going wrong
But trouble comes so naturally
I believe I’ll carry on
chorus-
Track Name: Mountain Top Blues
I’m going up on the mountain to get my ashes hauled
I’m going up on the mountain to get my ashes hauled
Take me down to the valley to let that river flow

Riding out on the highway - i can’t even see my home
Riding out on the highway - i can’t even see my home
Take me down to the valley and let that river flow

Looking up there towards heaven, is somebody gonna save my soul?
Looking up there towards heaven, is somebody gonna save my soul?
Take me down to the valley and let that river flow

Lay me down in the tall grass and lighten up my load
Lay me down in the tall grass and lighten up my load
Take me down to the valley and let that river flow

I’ve got time on my hands and things are moving slow
I’ve got time on my hands and things are moving slow
Take me down to the valley and let that river flow

I’ve been working real hard and i can’t work no more
I’ve been working real hard and i can’t work no more
Take me down to the valley and let that river flow

Peace is at hand - it’s a long row that we hoe
Peace is at hand - it’s a long row that we've hoed
Take me down to the valley and let that river flow
Track Name: Breakin' Out
Pack your bags and head out on the highway
Leave behind every kind face that you’ve known
I’d tell you now but you’d know that I’d be lying
“Stick around, there’s no place good as home”

I’m sick and tired of the police coming around
Every time i come by your house to pick up all my stuff
I’m gonna point this old guitar towards the western skies
I hope the highway’s long enough

chorus-
Take it from me,
I’ve seen the inside of this big world spinning ‘round
Wishing I was closer to the clouds
And take it from me,
I’ve been here long enough trying to get up off the ground
Now must be time for breaking out

Some say that running’s not the answer
Like I’m trying to leave it all behind
but if I ever make it full circle
I will have earned what is mine

chorus-

You know I’ll miss you but I’ll be seeing you again
Somewhere farther down the line
Sometimes when the spirit’s pushed too far, my friend
The only cure is road and wind and time

chorus- (repeat)
