Track Name: Bravado
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
Track Name: Rodeo
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
Track Name: Lonesome At Last
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
Track Name: I Wanna Go Home With You
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
Track Name: Blue on Blue
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
Track Name: Baby Got Stopped
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
Track Name: Maggie's Silver Mine
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
Track Name: Speechless
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
Track Name: Don't Lose Your Head
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
Track Name: Replacing You
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
