Track Name: Before the Question
Before the question even leaves my lips
I know the answer will greet an angry fist
With no excuses for what my eyes can't see
Just an old promise, your love is all I need
Track Name: Hazy Goodbye
There ain't no sign of you coming home
Cause you'll never find what you're looking for
I've been making up lies to buy you more time
In case you decide, you belong by my side

As soon as the spring comes
This home it ain't enough
That road out my window
Hangs fixed within your eyes
So I hold every moment
Like a hazy goodbye

You pay no regard, you leave no regret
Your unguarded heart, can always forget
Your rambling soul won't find no peace
Building a home on love like a thief

And all of those midnight street riders
With horses on fire
Are coming now to take you away
Singing songs from broken hearts
Pulling on your broken parts
And I watch them carry you away
Track Name: Don't Rush Me
Everyone's running like they stole a dream
Images of magazines
Take your chance while you're still young
Glory flickers like a candle in the desert sun

I wasted time on an overpass
Watching how nothing lasts
The streets are filled with a hollow glow
Their bellies ache where shallow hungers grow

Don't rush me
I just want a little more time
Everyone grows older
But we all just wanna start again
Don't rush me
I just want a little more time
Am I standing on a shoulder
Still looking for a promise land

So where do you hide on a quiet night
When your fears are nestled by your side
The TV screen burns too bright
You sit and talk with ghost behind your eyes
Track Name: Pretty People
Traveled west on an eastern heartache
Lost touch with the reason
Found another trend that I could break
To feel more like myself

Saw the waters where they drown their sorrow
Pacific lovers in motion
They keep on talkin bout tomorrow
Tomorrow never comes

California dreaming may just be a feeling
When everything is out of reach
All the pretty people are looking pretty equal now

The stars burn bright outside the city limits
Where the canyons are empty
Lonely nights lit by lonely companions
In a sweetness and release

I thought I saw you hiding in the shadow
But you were holding the answer
While everybody's talking
Talking bout themselves

California dreaming may just be a feeling
When everything is out of reach
All the pretty people are looking pretty equal now
All the pretty people are floating like they won't come down

You always wait for the dust to settle
Before you tell me you miss me
Track Name: A Few Good Hearts
You've been picking fights with shadows twice your size
Using candlelight to dance with your disguise
When those rumors grow and silence sweeps this town
You never care enough to try and choke them down

Now there's nowhere left to run
Even the stars aren't out tonight
When it's all been said and done
You can't help but wonder why

You gotta break a few good hearts along the way
To find someone who makes you wanna stay
If you could do it all again
There's not a thing that you would change
You gotta break a few good hearts along the way

You stood toe to toe with every doubt you had
And learned to shine a light on things that make you sad
But looking for a better way around
Never seems to slow you down
When you've come this far
The pain ain't all that bad
Track Name: Southern Belle
Southern belle ringing in my head
Louder now than it's ever been
When I left you were standing guard
Something tells me you never got too far

Southern belle fairest of the ball
Lovers wait in an empty hall
Their invitations press around the room
Take the hand of any you should choose

You look for maps in a pattern sky
Where no one laughs every time you cry
You cry for what you cannot find
Like peace of mind

Southern belle in your ivory tower
You watch the night unfold his ruthful power
The morning breaks in through the eastern sky
Steals you from the shattered arms of night
Track Name: Dancing Light
Even the wind, even the wind turns it's back on you
Even the walls I watch them crumble and blame us

I need some shelter
Atleast an answer
But I know that it's true
We fight for what we will lose

I'm not as strong as I thought I was
Everything thing we build turns to dust
Did we fall in love with the fire
Just find ourselves a dancing light

Even our words, even our words have no meaning
Cause everything we should say can never find it's way out
Of our doubts

I need some shelter
Or just a reason
Can I hold on to you
Until I know what is true

I'm not as strong as I thought I was
Everything I build is ash and dust
Did we fall in love with the fire
Just find ourselves a dancing light
Track Name: Talk So Tough
She takes exactly what she wants for free
Says if you love me you would buy it for me
And she's right
All the time
She'll bum a cigarette just ask you for a light

He's got an eye for every woman he sees
Ah, but they know that he can be some mean
But he's cool
Oh so cruel
He'll pick them up just to drop them when they fall

Everybody's looking for somebody to love
You can tell who got hurt by they way they talk so tough

He tells you everything you wanted to hear
But he doesn't really talk so clear and slips by
Right before you eyes
Now he left you alone
Waiting by your phone
Track Name: Girl in the Southeast
There's a girl in the southeast that looks like her mom
And you should hear her singing when she thinks she's alone
Calm as the whisper of the pine needle trees
She'll make any man buckle his knees

Turning out my heart again
She always finds another way in

Hangs her hat on the mirror and hope by the door
Stares out the window and hums at the storm
Searching for answers and someone to care
But I was too far away to always be there
Track Name: Plain and the Valley
Heavy lays the heart that wanders free
Built to long eternally
For a love that waits on a distant shore
Far beyond, far away

I’ve been one who travels far from home
Traced the steps my fathers roam
Drank the waters blessed by the new wine skin
and I’ve learned songs from the broken hearts of men

And all the beast of the field
Beg for a garden
Somewhere life can settle down
Where peace makes a sound
And a choir of rain covers the plain and the valley

When your legs grow tired of your aimless feet
and all your friends grow out of reach
and every road you walk grows strangely dim
May a light by the window guide you in

All the birds of the air
Toil without care
Tomorrow breaks every plan and bends every man
And every child ever born
or forced to be torn from the garden
to wander the plain and the valley
Track Name: As You Need
A wiser man would tell you how to settle down
When you're stranded in the clouds
A fool would never notice the storm that makes you fly
Or the lightening in your eyes

But the wheel spins faster now
And everything you've known
Will soon be left behind

When it's all over
Will you still remember me
As I was or as you need

It's harder now to fake it, easier to lie
But no one bats an eye
The end feels like a spark
So you guard it with your heart
For when you wanna see a light

And the world grows harder now
Everything before
Barely matters anymore

When it's all over
Will you still remember me
As I was
As you need
Or why you leave
