Bravado 03:09
Bravado Take him back, take him back for all that he’s done make him beg, get him on his knees and then run Cut him off, make it so he can’t see your face Hold him up, hold him so he sees his mistake Many hindsights fail my eyesight I can eye the measurements with Bravado many men have seen my shadow I can fill the emptiness with Bravado Looking back, looking back just what I was in Had to laugh laughing so I don’t lose my shit Puttin on, putting on a show for my friends In Denial, looking for a means to an end Many hindsights fail my eyesight I can eye the measurements with Bravado many men have seem my shadow I can fill the emptiness with Bravado Take me back, take me back and keep me at bay Where I stand isn’t where I want to stay Make me beg, borrow cheat or steal me away What I said isn’t all I have to say Many hindsights fail my eyesight I can eye the measurements with Bravado many men have seem my shadow I can fill the emptiness with Bravado

Rodeo 03:55
Rodeo My lasso is broken again My lasso is broken again I tried to go rounding up every last man My lasso is broken again And I’m stopping the light at the seams I’m stopping the light at the seams I’m killing myself just to know what it means I’m stopping the light at the seams And I’m calling the cattle the names you won’t hear And I’m kicking the river for believing my fears When there’s peace in the valley I will come to you slow And then I’ll whisper softly This is my first rodeo I’m flirting to feel where it hurts I’m flirting to feel where it hurts I’m dreaming you’re looking up every damn skirt I’m flirting to feel where it hurts And I wonder if you’ll take the ride I wonder if you’ll take the ride You talk like you’re turning out from the inside I wonder if you’ll take the ride And I’m calling the cattle the names you won’t hear And I’m kicking the river for believing my fears When there’s peace in the valley I will come to you slow And I hope you remember This is my first rodeo

Lonesome at Last Irresponsibly, effervescently
 I would bend my knees just to feel the breeze 
 On the back or front, I’d go anywhere
 Long as lasting he would stop to stare I am lonesome at last
 A terrible past of searching for better halves
 I am without a wing
Under attack
 I’m lonesome at last
I’m lonesome at last Uncontrollably, oh it’s come to this
 Why should he with her or with him, 
 Goddamn I have paid my dues and received the man
 I want something new
Not to hold a hand I am lonesome at last
 A terrible past of searching for better halves and I am without a wing
 Under attack
 I’m lonesome at last
I’m lonesome at last I am lonesome at last
 A terrible past of searching for better halves and I am without a wing Under attack
 I’m lonesome at last
I’m lonesome at last

I Wanna Go Home With You What am I without you who’s to say that you want me too You’re getting older but you’re growing down I miss you when you’re not around I ain’t pretty when I ain’t true I’m holding on to what’s been holding you I kinda like it when you’re not around I wish I didn’t need you now You say I’m crazy You say I’m wrong You say I got to be the only one There’s a million things that I could do But I wanna go home with you What’s a man got to do God I wish that I was close to you I’m living like I never lost my head I’m sorry for the things I said In my mind, you’re out of your head I’ve been dreaming of the things you said No one wants to hear your every thought I’m drowning when you think I’m not What if I said what was on my mind What if you did what I’m thinking now You say I’m crazy You say I’m wrong You say I got to be the only one There’s a million things that I could do But I wanna go home with you

Blue on Blue 03:25
Blue On Blue Blue on blue she’s looking for a deeper hue the kind that makes a fool of you and burns through truth sky blue sky, if only I could make you cry And find the weakness in your sighs And quiet when you’re through If you’re going down I’m going too But if you paint this town Don’t paint it blue Don’t paint it blue Can’t go back There’s nothing there but grey and black A broken heart or heart attack, a poor man’s proof Blue on blue, I’m reaching out to warn you too There’s nothing you or I could do He burns for you If you’re going down I’m going to If you paint this town Don’t paint it blue Don’t paint it blue I can’t go back now I can’t go back now

Baby Got Stopped Baby got stopped in the night by a red light
 Missed it by a minute, pump the breaks, hit the gas, glide 
 Baby, you can run it baby you can home
 Take a little moment, look left look right slow Baby got stopped in the night by a red light
 Saw it from a distance, but her foot didn’t say so
 Baby something’s coming, something that you should know Listen to the sound of the silence, baby take note Stop, Stop, go, go, slow down Stop, Stop, go, go, slow down Baby got stopped in the night by a red light
 Threw her hands up, hit the dash, gave quite a show
 Baby, you can be mad, nothin’s going your way
 Maybe there’s a reason that you’re here, so you should stay Baby got stopped in the night by a red light
 Missed him by a minute, saw the flames and the smoke rise Baby, could’ve been you, baby, couldja hold on
 Someone calls the stops and the gos on your ride home Stop, Stop, go, go, slow down Stop, Stop, go, go, slow down

Maggie’s Silver Mine The streets were paved with dust and coal I found her panning for gold, back in ’81 She was already gone Her hair was down, her knees apart She had a graveyard heart And a smoking gun, back in ‘81 I’ve been searching everywhere For a five-five, red hair, pale skin, soft lips A six-shooter on her hip Last seen kissing me underneath the silver tree With nothing but time That’s when Maggie was mine Empty bottles built these walls He was a wrecking ball Stumbling into town Hiding underground Late one night the fog was low He crept to her door She was all alone I was deep down below I’ve been searching everywhere For a five-five, red hair, pale skin, soft lips A six-shooter on her hip Last seen kissing me underneath the silver tree With nothing but time That’s when Maggie was mine Everybody heard the shots Before his heart stopped She was on the run The streets were paved with dust and cold I found his blood stained soul Rising with the dawn She was already gone I’ve been searching everywhere For a five-five, red hair, pale skin, soft lips A six-shooter on her hip Last seen in my dreams wanted just to marry me Locked up in my arms underneath the silver tree He was just an outlaw knocking on the wrong door She never missed her mark, One bullet, two hearts Ten years no trace tell me that you’ve seen her face Take me back in time Back when Maggie was mine

Speechless 04:02
Speechless More sugar please No, I’m not finished yet I had a lot to say before you showed your face I’ll just be a minute Gotta get my head on straight Before I blow your mind with all I have to say Let me start again I’m almost done Here’s where you get a little pissed You say, “use your words, tell me how you feel About seeing me today” Why don’t you look at me Like I still look at you, do you miss me too? Tell me your fine, the feeling’s passed Tell me why we didn’t last You say

Don’t Lose Your Head If you fashion me a melody that goes bum bum bum bum bum bum stay Then you’ll quit this fix of loneliness and you’ll give yourself away Oh what a night we had Oh what we sold Love for the money Money for our souls What about me, he would say And we’d give it away singing la la la la la la la Don’t lose your head And these razorblades of ridicule singing bum bum bum bum bum bum wait May you come to life but seal your spite You’ll be free again someday Oh what a night we had Oh fancy free Gazing at future stars Soon he would believe What about me, he would say And we’d give it away Singing la la la la la la la Don’t lose your head

Replacing You I don’t know how to be I don’t know how to smile I don’t know how to hold my own hand I don’t know how to hold my head up high But if I do, it’s because of you And if I do, it’s because of you What if all I do, instead of replacing you, is replace myself What if days were years and mountains were made of tears It’s because of you That I’m here I’m on top of the world I’m the only one here I’m getting used to this quiet mind And I don’t mind if you call me, dear But if you do, I will tell you the truth And if you do, I will tell you What if all I do, instead of replacing you, is replace myself What if days were years and mountains were made of tears It’s because of you That I’m here I won’t run I’ll stay right here and wait it out If all that I’ve learned is to let myself be heard Then I hope that you’re listening too
