Track Name: On The Run
Hey little darling
What's got you down?
Could it be the world upon you mamma
Or could it be the same old sound?
You're on the run again

Did he treat you mean and dirty honey
Or did he buy you diamond rings?
Did he just lie and stare at ya?
Did he pull the wrong strings?
No matter
You're on the run again

So, run, run run
You’re on the run again

Everything is unfair to you mamma
Everyone is out for blood
Everything is upside down for you
Everything is clear as mud
So, you're on the run again

Well run run run
[clap it, baby]

Why are you slowing down baby?
Why did you turn around?
Could it be there's nothing out there for ya
That you haven't already found?
It won't be long till
You're on the run again

So run, run, run

On
Track Name: Black Hills Dakota
She said "it smells like tears and starlight"
And oh, I know what she means
But when the sun breaks over
The Black Hills of Dakota
I'll be coming back your way again

See, it's nothing like the movies
And, when the women call my name
I could shrug my shoulders
But I walk right over
And, it begins again

[Chorus]
It don't take much to start you cryin'
But, baby these days it never ends
I'm long on excuses, and when it seems I'm useless
I'm usually everything and more

It's the secrets I'm keeping
That could show me my grave
But, the risks that I'm taking
For the eyes that they're making
Take me back to the streets again

[Chorus]

She said "it smells like tears and starlight"
And only she knows where I've been
But when the sun breaks over
The Black Hills of Dakota
I'll be coming back your way again

When the sun breaks over
The Black Hills of Dakota...
Track Name: Quiet Into The Night
There's something strange about the way you talk
That I can't put my finger on
Don't tell me that you've hidden this away
For each and every one of your years

I've heard this story time and time again

[Chorus]
But, what the hell is this
I can't believe you let the girl
Go quiet into the night
Go quiet into the night

Does your momma know you act this way
With a different girl almost every other day
When you got it good and you don't know what it means
And the truth be being told ain't as good as it seems

I've heard this story time and time again

[Chorus]

Goddamn you're crazy, you gotta be crazy yeah
Goddamn you're crazy, you gotta be outta yaw mind!

[Chorus]
Track Name: How Could I Have Known?
In time I've grown tired of this sinking ship feelin'
How could I have known
You gave me a tub and said "paddle my son"
How could I have known

[Chorus]
Drag me down to a watery grave
Is it only the worst kind of sailors you save?

I heave and I paddle until I expire
How could I have known
The water's climbed over the top of the side
How could I have known

[Chorus]

[Chorus]

My hand at the surface my head just below
How could I have known
My lover is calling and mocking me so
How could I have known

[Chorus]

One final breath with a twist of a smile
It looks like I'm leaving this world for awhile.
Track Name: What Have I Done? (On The Run, Part II)
Roads. Travel over, travel on
Glow. Watching over, guiding on
And I am on my way to away
The spirit is guiding me on, so I must

[Chorus]
Hide from the shadows block the sun
This is all Iʼve known to do
So I must
Redesign myself again

What have I done?
What have I done?

Fold. My hand is never quite enough
Hold. Too gone to call my own bluff
So I am on my way to away
The spirit is guiding me on, so I must

[Chorus]

It all unravels with the pull of a single thread
It all unravels with the pull of the same thread
It all unravels with the pull of a common thread
So I must

Go where Iʼve always gone before
Down. Hit the bottle, hit the floor
Where I can find my way to away
The spirit is dragging me on, so I must

[Chorus]
Track Name: Old Man In A Fog
Just an old man in a fog
Left alone for far too long
Nothing left but promises
No one there to hold my hand home

You're just a joke I used to know
Now the punchline's come and gone
I used to laugh my heart out loud
Now you can't help me, or you won't

[Chorus]
I must have been crazy
To think I'd be somewhere
At the end of these days
I gave a tooth for a promise
I gave an eye for a lie
I can't even find a place where I can run and hide

Soldiers lined up in a row
Not one of them can show me which way I should go
I dip them down into the yolk
The nurses come to wheel my old bones home

[Chorus]

Just an old man in a fog
Left alone for far too long
Nothing left but promises
No one there to hold my hand home
Track Name: Fight From The Inside
Come on baby don't be shy
I know you don't want to try
You know I would if I had the time
But, I feel like I've been left behind

[Chorus]
You've got to fight it from the inside
You've got to fight it from the inside
You've got to fight it from the inside
But, it just don't feel right

Come on baby tell me again
I want to help you and you know I can
But if the only way is to let you win
Then I don't think I can do it again

[Chorus]

Come on baby don't be shy
I know you don't want to try
You know I would if I had the time
But, I feel like I've been left behind
Track Name: Planes & Trains
Planes and trains and boats and cars
They all take me far away
And alleyways that lead to stages
Bright lights and carpet faces

Far away is good enough for some
But I...
I need a little closeness

Hotel sheets and city lights
They’re all wonderful to begin
But the glory falls out of your stories
When you’re the only one to tell them to

Some will love you
Some will want you
Some will weave a yarn or two
But we are leaves in the wind
And we will never meet again

Roundabouts are nice for some
But I... I need a little stable
I...

Chasing dreams ain’t all it seems
And I... I need someone to dream with
Track Name: Mullum
Made my way through the market to a stall in the corner
Met a girl with a braid and the sunlight on her shoulder
Took her smile as it was offered, took her hand as we were talking
We were married the next day

In a cabin by the water we fell in love completely
And, he took my hand again and he whispered low and sweetly
“This is all I have to offer”, and I smiled and met his eyes
And said, “honey this is our life”

[Chorus]
Mmm, mmm, mmm

When it rained you were my shelter
And we always found the time to watch the sunrise
Even when the time was hard to find
We still found time

[Chorus]

Made our way through the market to a stall in the corner
Where a girl with a braid and the sunlight on her shoulder
Took a hand as it was offered and we smiled as they were talking
And said, “honey this is our life”

[Chorus]
Track Name: Pull Me Inside
Where have we been all these years?
Leather to road and the strain of our tears
Others have searched, no, none have found
We're coming down

How did we last for so long?
Tumble-down shack on the wrong side of town
"Not I, not I", I lied
We were on fire

Eyes slightly closed you turn into me
A trick of the light and deeper than shame
Oh, you pull me in
As little pieces of our galaxies collide
You pull me inside

Eyes to the road you turn into me
A trick of the light and fleeting like shame
Oh, you pull me in
As little pieces of our galaxies collide
You pull me inside

We made our peace with the clay
Covered up on a cold winter's day
Into that place the king was crowned
We came down

Eyes tightly closed you turn into me
A trick of the light and deep in the grave
Oh, you pull me in
As little pieces of our galaxies collide
You pull me inside
Track Name: As Autumn Falls
As I sit here
On the edge of the garden bliss is everywhere
The leaves are drifting to the ground

I am honoured
That this moment has chosen me, it’s beautiful
The greens are turning shades of fire
The birds depart with distant song

I strum my guitar and tap my feet
As autumn falls
I sing my love to the changing breeze
Hoping it’ll make it’s way to you

As autumn falls, as summer fades
Love has come and gone
But seasons ebb and life flows on

I am living in this moment
I’m moved without moving
For you I send the same surrender
Find your season, find your song

The sun goes down and the shadows fade
As autumn falls
I sing my love to the changing breeze
Hoping it’ll make it’s way to you
Track Name: Perfect Storm
When all the colours blend as one
And stars revolve around the sun
All we build will be undone
Inside the perfect storm

See the light inside of you
And he will show you what to do
All the world will be as new
Inside the perfect storm

[Chorus]
All things must pass
Inside the perfect storm

Every shade you’re looking for
Is found upon a distant shore
You will never want for more
Inside the perfect storm

Mother Nature pulls us in
Like puppets blown into the wind
Life will end as it begins
Inside the perfect storm

[Chorus]

When all the kingdoms turn to sand
And cradled in our mother’s hand
Days will end as they began
Inside the perfect storm

When all the colours blend as one
And stars revolve around the sun
All we build will be undone
Inside the perfect storm

[Chorus]
