Track Name: Airshow
Airshow

I don’t want to go to the airshow
I don’t want to take a drive
I don’t want to meet your friends at eight
I still can’t find mine

I don’t want to meet at your parents place
If they don’t like me songs
There’s six or seven lanes on the interstate
but we can’t get along

I don’t want to smoke your cigarettes
I don’t want to wash your shirts
or hear about the scars and the blood stains
like you’re the only one that hurts

I got a little money I saved up
and I’ll turn out the lights
I’m waiting for a bus down by Travis Park
and I won’t wave goodbye

You’re always the one getting over it
You’re always the one doing fine
I’m still stuck here trying to make sense of this
but not this time

I don’t want to play this song for you
I don’t want to waste your time
I don’t want to go to the airshow
I’ll just wait outside

You’re always the one getting over it
You’re always the one doing fine
I’m still stuck here trying to make sense of this
but not this time
Track Name: Enough
Enough

I pull up to the house I don’t know what to do
I’ve been running, tired and looking for you
I’d like you better if you were still in our bed
stealing kisses and covers; oh, the things that you said

You’re singing in the kitchen now like you always do
but there’ll be a last time and I’ll cry when that’s through
Your heart is made of silver and mine is gold like a fool’s,
but they break just the same and I’m not coming back to you

I thought I was in love, but I was just trying to be enough
I said that I let you go, and I’m right back where I was

I get flashbacks at truck stops, and walking home from bars
I’m ahead of this freight train that ain’t even ours
It’s a heavy load for the faint of heart
You never asked if I could carry it- you just told me how far

I thought I was in love, but I was just trying to be enough
I said that I let you go, but I’m right back where I was


I pull up to the house I don’t know what to do
I’ve been running, tired, and looking for you
I’d like you better if you’d just come back to bed
Shut out the lights and forget the things that we said

I thought I was in love, but I was just trying to be enough
I said that I let you go, but I’m right back where I was
Track Name: Bad Company
Bad Company

Standing outside a hotel in phoenix after a midnight drive
I never said you said you were full of shit
but you could see it in my eyes
It wasn’t luck that we both needed
or the stars in the desert sky
Just a promise that no one was leaving here until we got it right

Where did we go wrong?
Our love was like the summer breeze
Honey, where did we go wrong?
Now its bad company

We grew apart in a small town by the riverside
You never said, “it would be forever”, still I acted so surprised
It wasn’t easy to stand my ground with that water getting so high, but I made a promise that I wasn’t leaving here until I got it right

Where did we go wrong?
Our love was like the summer breeze
Honey, where did we go wrong?
Now its bad company

Standing outside a hotel in phoenix
It was a long, long drive
I never told you how I was feeling
I could never say it right
Track Name: I'm Still Yours
I’m Still Yours

All our maps are faded, so I can’t take us anywhere
The phone stopped ringing, so I guess I’m off the hook
Now the rain is coming through the ceiling
and you can’t find what you’re looking for, but I’m still yours

Take my ticket for a plane that left yesterday
Send me a postcard from the kitchen down the hall
Say, the radio is playing static and you left the drugs at the store, but I’m still yours

Some nights we get it right and know exactly what to do
Then the sun comes up and it’s gone
I think sometimes that I’ve said too much
Yeah, I think sometimes that I’ve said too much
but I’m still yours

All the roses dried up on the table top
This light has been burned out for days
Now the cold is coming through the window
and those ain’t my clothes on the floor, but I’m still yours…
Track Name: Idaho
Idaho

We found the dark days, and we found them fast
Clicking our heels now just trying to get back
We had a love there; it was mean and cold
but it had its days and its nights for sure

Keep it steady but don’t let go
When you’re empty find something to hold
Don’t slow down when it’s time to leave you’ll know
Think of me when you’re crossing Idaho

Our time here is laced with silver and dust
It’s not about where you’ve been, but when enough is enough
So keep on running; that sun’s gonna set
and the gold across the valley will be the last of it

Keep it steady but don’t let go
When you’re empty find something to hold
Don’t slow down when it’s time to leave you’ll know
Think of me when you’re crossing Idaho
Track Name: Kiss The Ground
Kiss the Ground

Sometimes you think you know a heart so well
like giving out directions with no street names
You just know by the way it looks by the way it feels
Like driving home

Now these mornings, they’re breaking so blue
That horizon draws a line I’ve never known
I can still taste summer in the back of my throat;
I said it all for you

Every time you told me it was over I had fingers crossed behind my back
When you took my hand to tell me the feeling faded from grey to white and black

Oh, December you’re so good to me
I never thought I’d learn to stay and dance with my two feet
I don’t believe that some things never change
Oh, but you were the best

I’d been falling so long that I kissed the ground when I came down
Then I killed something inside me that kept me always waiting around
Track Name: Rose
Rose

I used to be someone I didn’t want to be anymore
I hope when you see me now you don’t see her breaking dishes on the floor
Or screaming out loud, and slamming all them doors
and using you love up like I could always get some more

I was a little far from home
Thinking I was right when I was doing wrong
When the petals come off of a rose it’s just a thorn

Well, you know that I keep you in the middle of my mind
I’m not always thinking about you, no, but you keep me in line
When I do, it’s in the middle of the night
But I never needed a ring or a house- I just needed time

I was a little far from home
Thinking I was right when I was doing wrong
When the petals come off of a rose it’s just a thorn

I’ll trade all of my excuses for one second chance
and hope you come back…are you coming back?

I used to be someone before I really knew
that even the sweetest things in life have something to lose
I’ve paid the cost that leaves a heart in two
but I’ll count the ways I still need you

You’re the one that feels like home
You set me right when I’m doing wrong
and knows when the petals come off of a rose it’s just a thorn
Track Name: Shake
Shake

Well, you grab your keys and shuffle your feet ‘cause you’re about to leave
I’ll stand in the doorway until you’re gone and it’s just me
I hate, hate, hate that feeling from my heart to me knees
I’ll shake, shake, shake until I’m trembling

You didn’t tell me about her but, darling, you didn’t have too
I could tell by look in your eyes and your brand new shoes
I’ll wait, wait, wait like I always do
I’ll dance, dance, dance like I’m dancing with you

Now I’m putting on my coat and I hope I don’t make you late
You said you wrote me that song and now it’s just about the interstate
I think I’ll drive, drive, drive ‘cause it’s heavy now to stay
Roll down the window and shake, shake, shake
Roll down the window and shake, baby, shake
Track Name: San Andreas Fault
San Andreas Fault

In the battles of the in between
I love my love when he loves me
But there’s a shadow that tears apart
As if the San Andreas Fault is on my heart
As if the San Andreas Fault is on my heart

I’ve said sorry all the time
I’ve said sorry all the time
When there’s no reason to even start
It’s like the San Andreas Fault is on my heart

And I may lose control every winter
When the medicine don’t take
But in your own times of frailty
You know that I can radiate

Leave a light on for me babe
Leave a light on for me babe
When there’s no reason for us to part
But sometimes the San Andreas Fault is on my heart
Track Name: San Fernando County Line
San Fernando County Line

You had me smiling all the way on our drive to L.A.
Singing me the songs that you wrote
You were breaking hearts, you were tearing them apart
I was loving every single note

We were young enough to run and feeling so alive
Windows down across San Fernando County Line

We found our way through the streets in the desert heat
We were playing every Saturday night
Like June and Johnny, the life of the party
Damn, we were feeling fine

But I should have seen it coming they were turning out the lights
Drinking our way through San Fernando County nights

I know it’s not easy to be in love like we used to be
It would take all the angels in this city

When the money ran out I was thinking about how
I’d be better off on my own
You were showing all the girls as little part of your world and I was sitting right there at home

I was reckless enough I didn’t even say goodbye
Windows down across San Fernando County Line
Track Name: High Hopes
High Hopes

Hey, it’s been awhile
We both know better days
It used to take half a bottle to get you to smile,
and an empty to call my name
Like you were running’ from something no one else could see, and I was holding onto nothing like it was everything

Maybe I was too late
Or maybe I was right on time
but either way my heart breaks,
cause there ain’t no calling you mine
Now I’m in your city and lost inside of this dream
And the busiest street won’t bring you back to me

These high hopes are bringing me down
I miss those rock-n-roll records and your kiss on the mouth
Honey, I’m still searching for the sound

Yeah, it’s messed up
The ways I’ve tried to forget,
And move on, just to paint you back in
Under a wild sky out somewhere we’ve never been
Where I can let go the breath I’ve been holding in

These high hopes are bringing me down
I miss those rock-n-roll records
I can hear them now
Honey, I’m still searching for the sound
