Track Name: Old Bones
Old Bones -

I haven't worn these old shoes in a while
It's been a few years
I can't seem to throw away the past
I hold on to it for you dear

and I wonder what you're after
why it keeps falling apart
and I wonder what you're doing
to stay young at heart

I haven't put this bare foot down to earth
its been a long time
this pair of new shoes will carry me soon
then i'll start a new

and I wonder what you're after
why it keeps falling apart
and I wonder what you're doing
to stay young at heart

Leaves keep on growing
they are falling off the trees
I am getting older
I am dying as I sing

Someday soon I'll have old bones
Someday soon I'll rule this world
Someday soon I'll have old bones too
Someday soon I'll rule this world

These old shoes are sad...but optimistic

Leaves keep on growing
they are falling off the trees
I am getting older
I am dying as I sing

Someday soon I'll have old bones
Someday soon I'll rule this world
Someday soon I'll have old bones too
Someday soon I'll rule this world...too
Track Name: Colorado
Colorado -

I wonder where we go
When we go to sleep
I wonder where we go
When we go to sleep
I wonder if you think of me
When we go to sleep
I wonder if I haunt you
Like you haunt me

I’d like to think so. Nah nah nah nah
I’d like to think so. mhmm

Where do you want to go?
Colorado on your own
I will stay here, I will wait here
On my own

I wonder where we go
When you turn out the light
I wonder where we go
When you turn out the light
I wonder if I worry you
Oh, I think might
I wonder if I haunt you
Yes I do

I’d like to think so. Nah nah nah nah
I’d like to think so. Mhmm

Where do you want to go?
Colorado on your own
I will stay here, I will wait here
On my own
Colorado on your own
I will stay here, I will wait here
On my own
Colorado
Track Name: Miles Away
Miles Away -

Miles away, You're miles from me
you close your eyes it doesnt have to seem so far
and I'll see you when I see you
I hope its sooner than its later
You're never miles away from my heart

Your miles away, in a city you dont hate
millions of people between our seat
and I'll see you when I see you
dont think of miles as a dagger
you're never miles away from my street

Going home to see a ghost that I used to know
Ride that ol' storm cloud right through your front door, well...

if the airplane is failing
and the ship it just aint sailing

I'll buy a ticket, write the best song in new orleans
I'll buy a ticket, write the best song in new orleans
I'll buy a ticket, write the best song in new orleans
Track Name: Dirty Kids
Dirty Kids -

I got a hacksaw, Jigsaw puzzle at your mother's house
A tip toe summertime try to be quiet as a mouse
dont you know you got a hole in the palm of your hand
You got a problem that you don't quite understand

Dont go holding your breath
This is one hobo summer

Grip to the grime the 3rd street bridge, deliverance of underprivleged kids
There's one in the corner and his hands are on fire
Wild Handed pulling hearts on a string
The dead of the winter, inconceivable spring
the dawn comes slow, lagato howls the choir

Dont go holding your breath.
This is one hobo summer

all the dirty kids sing

Dont go holding your breath.
This is one hobo summer

Catacomb cat call honey comb edge of your knife
I love you much I think I might make you my wife
dont you know you can drink like it's New Year's Eve
you wear your heart on the patch on the side of your sleeve

Dont go holding your breath.
This is one hobo summer

all the dirty kids sing
Track Name: Cold Conversation
Cold Conversation -

I got one two three hearts on my shelf and I wish them well as they leave
oh no, tell me where you think they might be

We got hotels and motels, everything between, more than apartment buildings
this would be city where I could finally sleep tonight
This would be the city to spend a pretty penny

We are all wild anyway
a part of me would like to keep it that way
I'm a sheep and I'm a crow and I sing like them both
I sing a song to fall asleep
the cold wind is blowing
I cant help but know it
This is goodbye darling
this is goodbye darling

Sing a song - oooohhhh Yeah
this is goodbye
Here we go - oooohhhh
this is goodbye
this is goodbye

I got one two three birds on a line and I count them as I drive by
Oh no, need some concentration
Late night windmills on the road light up my drive home
this would be the night for cold conversation
this would be the night for cold conversation

We are all wild anyway
a part of me would like to keep it that way
I'm a sheep and I'm a crow and I sing like them both
I sing a song to fall asleep
the cold wind is blowing
I cant help but know it
This is goodbye darling
this is goodbye darling

Sing a song - oooohhhh Yeah
this is goodbye
Sing a song - oooohhhh
this is goodbye
this is goodbye

I got one two three hearts on my shelf and I wish them well as they leave
this would be the night for cold conversation
Track Name: River
River -

There were planes in the clouds
we were on our own
they made the rain come down
and we sailed out on our homes
well, what do you do
when you have nothing to lose

and the train knows this song
it knows how it goes
a heavy heavy heart of alameda blues
well, what do you do
when you have so much to move
and we will know ourselves
we just pray for rain and start singing

Oh, river take me
oh, river take me
oh, river take me home

and they tried playing god
they played him for a fool
with gold on their minds and oil on their boots
well, what do you do
when your hand starts to bleed

and their mouths so parched
and their grips to grime
you hold your head up high, see the airplane in the sky
well, what do you do
when the thunder starts rolling in
the gods are playing for keeps
we just pray for rain and start singing

Oh, river take me
oh, river take me
oh, river take me home

Oh, river take me
oh, river take me
oh, river take me home

we will strike them down
we will strike them down
we will strike them down
with a lightning bolt
Track Name: Boomerang
Boomerang -

Say I'm just a kid
you know I'd love to admit
twenty something years sitting on a shelf
little monuments, places i have been
places I would like to see next year
these are just little memories
just another anniversary
I will remember for you
I will remember

Someday, someday someday I'll be coming back to you
Someday, someday someday I'll be coming back to you
Someday, someday someday I'll be coming back to you
I'll be coming back to you, Somday
Someday, someday someday I'll be coming back to you
I'm your boomerang, I'm your boomerang, I'm your boomerang, I'm your boomerang now

Say I'm just a child
you know I think your right
I have played this game of stupid love
Out on your back porch
my lips touching yours
warm feelings warm up this cold town
these are just little memories
just another anniversary
I will remember for you
I will remember

Someday, someday someday I'll be coming back to you
Someday, someday someday I'll be coming back to you
Someday, someday someday I'll be coming back to you
I'll be coming back to you, Someday
Someday, someday someday I'll be coming back to you
I'm your boomerang, I'm your boomerang, I'm your boomerang, I'm your boomerang now

Dont let those headaches get you down
Don't let those heartaches keep you up
Don't let it get to your head too quick
let's not forget this isnt our first time

Someday, someday someday I'll be coming back to you, Ill be coming back to you someday
Someday, someday someday I'll be coming back to you, Ill be coming back to you someday
Someday, someday someday I'll be coming back to you, Ill be coming back to you someday
Someday, someday someday I'll be coming back to you
I'm your boomerang, I'm your boomerang, I'm your boomerang, I'm your boomerang now
Track Name: Old Cloud
Old Cloud -

and I had a stubborn heart
and you dance just like a flame
and I would lay my hands on the track
to get that sweet love of mine back

and I lost what I had found
I saw your face in a cloud
and I would lie on every blade of grass
to see that old cloud go past

Oooh, oooh, oohh, ooh, ooh oooh ooh ooh
They went wild

I know that im paranoid
its not like I had the choice
and I soaked it in from my mother's arms
when I was a little boy

so I pray for a rainy day
Id settle for a puddle of faith
I would ask for the poorest advice
and make the same mistake twice

Oooh, oooh, oohh, ooh, ooh oooh ooh ooh
They went wild

and Im heading up north
to find that old home place
that i loved when i was a better age

I said my goodbyes
and I lit the match
and I saw my flame dance again
and I saw my flame dance again
and I saw my flame dance again

you cant have a home without you old cloud
you cant have a home without you
you cant have a home without you old cloud
you can't have a lover without a sliver of doubt
Track Name: Wasted Again
Wasted Again -

I see you in my dreams
I see you almost every night
Thats why I pray for sleep
Thats why I count the time

All we have is home
home will be the dream
and I will waste away
in a grave that I will dig

I was born to love you
I was born to hurt you
I was born a fool
A lonely poor fool
and I'm wasted again
I am wasted again

You beg me to behave
These friends you hope to keep
You ask me to change
We both know I'll stay the same

I was born to love you
I was born to hurt you
You ask me to change
Give the bottle to take the pain
I'm wasted again
I am wasted again

mhhmmm's

I'm wasted again
I'm wasted again
I'm wasted again
I'm wasted again
Track Name: Something's Gotta Give
Something's Gotta Give -

If I had myself a dollar bill
for every time you curse my name
I might just become that rich man
head out west someday

Now I sit here and wonder things
must be something in the air
on the plains of North Dakota
quiet dreams of California

If you ask me do I have another night
I might give another thought
If you ask me would I do it all again
I might say why not

now I had myself another dream
you never quite look the same
on the wing of that areoplane
heading out my way

If you ask me do I have another night
I might give another thought
If you ask me would I do it all again
I might say why not

and I'm hanging on a branch outside my mothers old house
the world is spinning I am spinning too it seems so still

things are buried here
you can hear it in my name
every pile of aching bones
kinda looks the same
but their not...singing

ooh, ooh, ooh yes I know something's gotta give
