Track Name: Looking
Is this where I find you lying on the calico ground
Sun spots putting color to your skin
I wish to reach down and rub your cold cold feet
But I’m not the healer I saw by the riverbanks
I thought I doled out the rations and the spoils
Chariot and heart laid upon your bed
My hands were weighted down by air and thoughts
I forget these walls were built of glass
The ground is shaking, oh it’s shaking, shaking hard
And I’ve traveled here with aching bones
Lookin’, lookin’ for a way to be born
These half-days are selfish and this morning grey
Got no more illusions just a loaded deck
I’m a spy tired of this long hot coat and hat
Afraid of the dust and the lazy bets
The ground is shaking, oh it’s shaking, shaking hard
And I’ve traveled here with aching bones
Lookin’, lookin’ for a way to be born
Track Name: Limber Soul
I got a button on my bed, it’s blaring fire-engine red
It’s for the emergency days when I wake up in a daze
See I been drinkin’ hard and I’ve passed out in the car
With the heater blastin’ and a little voice in my head
Or wait was that you
See I got a limber soul and some jacked up goals
A contorted look on my face which I try to show with grace
And baby I’m a little crazy, but that’s why you’re here in the first place
My hand’s been cramped since the mosquitos set camp
I gotta bite the bullet if I keep swigging Bulleit
I love me a little Dylan when I’m a high-ass villain
And I love me a bit of you rollin’ in the mornin’ dew
Cuz boy your body sure does kill
See this town’s a little small but there’s not much I need at all
I’m waiting for some answers but I don’t need them right now
And I’ll always feel the same no matter where I came
I got peace in my heart and no wind can convince me this wasn’t worth the while
See this heart of mine it don’t need a dime
I’m in love with this family I found in my harmony
I got a limber soul and some jacked up goals
A contorted look on my face which I try to show with grace
Baby I’m a little crazy
Track Name: Day By Day
I tried to write about you, but nothing sounded right
I wanted to be honest but I’m scared of what’s inside
I can be the independent spirit running breathless through the sand
But there’s still part of my heart that I hold tight in my hand
We said that we weren’t serious and I’m serious when I say
I enjoy the time we spend together I’m taking it day by day
Let’s just smoke some and drink some and play the day away
Never hold back anything that we have got to say
We’ll keep each other laughing until rhythm loses rhyme
We’ll leave the past behind and let the future come in time
I know that sometimes I get defensive and sometimes I’m a little quiet
But never doubt my affections even if sometimes I’m no riot
I like sittin’ on the back porch singing songs that we both know
And I’m always a little sad when I know you’ve got to go
You’re so good and you’re so kind
You’re always true and you’re so fine
You tell me to be better
How to keep it all together
You’ll take away my sad songs
I’ll make our kisses last too long
You’ll be patient and you’ll be wise
While I set fire to the skies
Track Name: Chamomile Tea
Hey you there, will you come with me on a trip to the moon
Hey you there, I got a question but I don’t know how to ask
See I know I got a lot of things to find, and I know I’m just another gear on the grind
These days I just wanna know, where do you think the fireflies go
We wrote books and hung them from benches on Thirteenth
We always said the best things are those that are in between
You know my dear I love you still even as the battles sit on the still
Remember the day I taught you to tie the strings between your bridge and mine
Hey you there, do you remember the day when you left
I know it’s hard, I know we’re barely treading water here
I waved goodbye as you disappeared knowing that you were the only thing near
I’m just counting the days ‘til I see you again hopin’ that you’re still the same man
Track Name: Carolina
Carolina it’s been so long roses have wilted and the leaves are long gone
Carolina I’ve forgotten your voice if I hear your harmonies would it drown out all this noise
Carolina where have you been my heart’s been achin’ and this old porch has worn thin
Carolina didn’t you hear me call skies are getting’ dark and the leaves are ready to fall
Carolina did you see the stars were they as bright as the promise wrenched from the bard
Carolina it’s getting’ late my dreams left by the moonlight and the gate
Carolina this is goodbye years have passed and the bells have started to die
Carolina I wish you well but it’s time for me to find peace somewhere else
