Track Name: Welcome Home
Welcome home
Where you were born and rays of sunlight lost and foundation ground
Hear hills and trees, birds and because you're here they cheer
Welcome home
Track Name: Allways
Turn away you have something to say now
Lead the way let your words betray you now
Come back home so long you've roamed
You'll find yourself home alone sit on your throne and call your friends

Always I will be with you
All time I will be with you

Get what you need find a friend don't pretend you're okay it's okay
You're on the mend coming back again
Find your heart make a brand new start
Please don't stop you've got a lot

Always I will be with you
All time I will be with you

Take your time free your mind you'll find yourself
Wide awake not afraid to make those same mistakes
And I don't know what it is or where it came from not for sure
Where you were is where you are now come back home

Always I will be with you
All time I will be with you
Track Name: Goodbye Maryann
The day I left, well, it was raining,
Lines along the window
Flowers paved the tracks for miles
As if they tried to follow
Speeding fast I ran away
The flowers wished me well
But all I had was me
And my guitar case full of sorrow
We said goodbye at 2 o’clock
This train of no tomorrow
Packed my bags and got on board
And now I’m feeling hollow
Goodbye MaryAnn,
Goodbye my love
Think of me in times of trouble
Look to the stars above
Look to the stars above
The day I left well it was raining
Lines along the window
Track Name: Let it Burn
Well the older I get, I find the less I know
The farther the fall, the higher to go
The cracks are so deep I think they’re starting to show,
Still I let my troubles build, build, build
And watch them grow
Close your eyes
Recede into the darkness of your mind
Do you find life to be more kind?
Track Name: Don't Let it Go Away
The days are just too short
The evening comes to soon
The feeling is just right
When the two of us ignite
So don't let it go away
At the end of everyday
It's you I want always
So don't let it go away
The devil is the moon
Turning midnight into noon
To get that feeling right
When the two of us ignite
Your lipsticks all I taste
You said take me to your place
Let's get that feeling right
And the two of us ignite
Track Name: Demons
Tell me your demons and all of your fears
And I’ll hold you close in and out of the years
He said that to me, and I knew even then
That he lied through his teeth,
But I took those lies in
Life is in retrospect, don’t give a damn
Tears that won’t fall surely dry in the wind
We look back to go forward, and isn’t is strange
That I lost me when I found you
But it’s still all the same
Take my love and run
That’s all you’ve ever done for me, yeah
Take my love and run
That’s all you’ve ever done for me
So rest your bones with me and I’ll be ok
And tell me stories of yesterday

That’s what he told me, what he used to say

But I don’t hear that shit no more

And baby that’s ok
Track Name: Anyone
You can hope that you wont go down with the ship
But the captain always will
You can think that you know what's coming next
But you'll never know the rest
So we slip and we fall surrender to it all hoping for the best
Maybe what we need to hear this time of year lonely at its best
You don't need anybody
You don't need anybody
You don't need anyone but yourself
You remember everything you've done wrong
A weary old song wont forget
And you dwell on those thoughts you even get lost
Led astray by your regret
But its when that weight is holding you down you might just turn around
You don't need to notice you don't need the crowd
You don't need to worry you don't need me now
You don't need to listen you don't need to talk
You don't need to find me you don't care I'm lost
You don't need anybody
You don't need anybody
You don't need anybody
You don't need anybody
You don't need anyone but yourself
Track Name: Departed
It's all coming back to me now it's all coming back to me now
It's all coming back somehow, yes it's all coming back to me
We're so far departed from where we ought to be
We're so far departed from who we ought to be
We're so far departed from where we ought to be
We're so far departed from who we ought to be
Love yourself love yourself today
Love yourself love yourself away
Heal yourself with love it's the only way
Love yourself set your soul ablaze
Track Name: Fireside
Mama why didn’t you tell us
The truth of love and war?
We run around in circles
Always wanting more
Patterned by the world around
We meld into our forms
Mama, please relieve us
Of these bullshit norms
Mama why didn’t you tell us
That life would go so fast?
I’ve been living in my mind
Wading through the past
Wake up in the morning light
Wonder what day will bring
Mama we’re just lost in time
Come sit with me and sing
It’s alright, by the fireside
Stay with me, warm and dry
It’s alright, by the fireside
Stay a while, let’s get high
Mama why didn’t you tell us
The shadows fade to dust?
I’m afraid of what will be
When we’re left to rust
Down in holes, forgotten souls
Let it blow away
Mama, will we be forgotten
At the end of the day?
Track Name: Down
I am a leaf floating down the river
I know it's hard to believe the news I deliver
You know I know it's a lot to consider
You think that's the news they deliver
You think it's not hard to be a sinner
Not you not me will decide who will be the winner
They will keep it all
They will take it all
To keep us down
Keep us down
To keep us down
Keep us down
To keep us down
Crickets like the wheel of a coasting bike
Thunder overhead lightning stike
Jets fly by overhead
Crickets and frogs songs lost in the crowd
They will keep it all
They will take it all
With hope as our wrecking ball we take em' down
With hope as our wrecking ball we take em' down
With hope as our wrecking ball we take em' down
With hope as our wrecking ball we take em' down
To keep us down
Keep us down
To keep us down
Keep us down
To keep us down
