Track Name: Unsteady
with the dawn came the rain
put on a jacket or something that’ll keep you warm
he chose to fight but never to win
what hope was there what was for him
‘cause he changed
drifting through the same in the same way

won’t you give me more
won’t you turn the lights down low
but will you let me hold her
i think i know you and it’s strange what’s come over me
i think i know you and it’s strange what’s come over me

he became unsteady but came along
knows where to place his foot
but not which way to turn
he chose to leave but never belong
so i told him
be strong

don’t you give me more
don’t turn the lights down low
but will you let me kill him
i think i know you and it’s strange what’s come over me
i think i know you and it’s strange what’s come over me

so kick off your shoes again
throw your jacket to the ground and let it soil
i’m yours
through i am
through you came to watch over me when i was cold
through i am
through you came to take hold of me when i was cold

won’t you give me more
won’t you turn the lights down low
but will you let me hold her
i think i know you and it’s strange what’s come over me
Track Name: West 45th
because the fog was low
and the streets were meeting arms
i’ve been beaten
now i’m not leaving home

and in the second was rain
she is walking but i’m no-one
i feel january’s here and with me again

‘cause i’m a waste of arms
and you were wasting time
in my head you were better
i was wrong to scurry behind

so bring her safely home
there may be muscles now swallowing with her
‘cause i’ll be waking up waking up cold
‘cause i’ve been waking up waking up cold and alone

put on a locket and say
put on a locket and bring this wine
all of this evening it seemed like a waste of time

and in the second you came
bored and believing he seized your name
i feel january’s here and talking again

‘cause there was something more
and you were talking blind
‘cause this water was red
i was blacked out and needed a shine

so bring her name to your door
throw the flowers well over the threshhold
‘cause i’ll be walking out, walking out now
‘cause i’ll be walking out, walking out now
for sure

so bring her safely home
there may be muscles now swallowing with her
‘cause i’ll be waking up waking up cold
‘cause i’ve been waking up waking up cold and alone
Track Name: Autumn Sung
said you were heavy now
said you were autumn sung
now that i’m feeling my way through this town
born again tv tunes
night on the river news
walking and beating his head against mine

you could say there was a better time
you could bring bring me down

rich again, overbored under the sun
going to die empty but safe this once
bona fide entrances fortified walls
going to drag all these sins to the shore
we could sink under the waterline
you could bring me down i won’t mind

said why does nobody bring grace
beside you, you know i’ll always be late
‘cause something is wrong with him and something is right for some
and he needs to go on

said don’t have to worry now
you won’t be hurting now
you won’t be late
bring, all this was bright and new
you won’t be hurting too
you won’t be late

feast on the sidewalk the lady is wrong
going to dine slowly when the sun comes on
bust out the honey tree and flush out the fog
time to move quickly ‘cause your sons have gone

we could burn, fall through familiar days
we could fly, fly on water and wine

said why does nobody bring grace
beside you, you know i’ll always be late
‘cause something is wrong with him and something is right for some
and he needs to go on
Track Name: Hope Grocery
i know a place where you can rest and grow
when the tide is over and moving
i am a believer and i’m needing to know
for i left this town and made it my own
son we gather sorrow here
you can

born out of order and unable to grow
leave my weakened knees, my weakened knees behind you
all out of longing and recanting he knows
he won’t be wrong, he won’t be wrong again
soon there will be fighting here
i know

so spend up
we could be holy
but these sins won’t ever let me go now
and hold on
been slipping up lately
but these sins keep leaping up behind
leaping up behind

keep on your walking
don’t need his wining hands
i’ve got my cellphone and the tv news doesn’t help me stand

i know a place where you can return to grow
when the tide is under you and breaking
i am a believer and i’m needing to know
’fore i leave, leave this town again
son, now bring your fortunes here
we’ll rise

so spend up
we could be holy
but these sins won’t ever let me go now
and hold on
been slipping up lately
but these sins keep leaping up behind
leaping up behind .. keep on your walking
Track Name: Boss
who’s gonna blow the whistle now
who’s gonna hang his robes
who’s gonna bring the wedding down
it was only one
it was only one

it’s over now for me
the evening has come bought a lighter meal
heading out under the sea
you were holding out
you were holding out

‘cause what you need
what you need is three days old and changing
you were travelling blind
but you felt like this would feel
and somethings wrong, somethings wrong
‘cause you felt like that in the mountains
you were coughing blood and not feeling worthwhile

so come, what was that sound
it was me breaking up losing out and falling down
and gather your hands
and blanket that smile
i wasn’t big enough, big enough to fall behind
so when your needle comes
you won’t be steady armed today
when something changes you’ll be heading out to say

who’s gonna bury the sun now
who’s gonna water the sand
who’s gonna fall out and break now
this heavy hand
this heavy hand

it’s ending now for me
the morning broke bought a heavy meal
heading out over the sea
you were holding out
you were holding out

‘cause what you need
what you need is three days old and changing
you were travelling blind
but you felt like this would feel
and somethings wrong, somethings wrong
‘cause you felt like that in the mountains
you were coughing blood and not feeling worthwhile

so come, what was that sound
it was me breaking up losing out and falling down
and gather your hands
and blanket that smile
i wasn’t big enough, big enough to fall behind
so when your needle comes
you won’t be steady armed today
when something changes you’ll be heading out to say
Track Name: Fog
it’s incomplete, pencil it in
i’m not sure of my mother’s line
chicken feeding under seems strange
how he came back to see life again

so far gone
so far gone
i can stay with you awhile
so far gone
so far gone
i can stay with you awhile

this time i’m not alone
this time i’ve got to go
think strong
under the sand
i’m not changing, i’d rather be
i’m dead, holding now you can say

i could climb a waterfall
now I could climb a waterfall

it’s incomplete, he wears an orange grin
chasing back i won’t let him come
somethings stronger and it seems strange
how he won’t compete, he won’t be okay

so far gone
so far gone
i can stay with you awhile
so far gone
so far gone
i can stay with you awhile
this time i’m not alone
this time i’ve got to go
think strong
under the sand
i’m not changing, i’d rather be
i’m dead, holding now you can say

i could climb a waterfall
now I could climb a waterfall
when you gonna be silent...
