Well you get the bill and I’ll get the tip Next time around it won’t be like this… Again, not again You know I’m new to town still getting’ the feel But who the hell said this city was real… My friend, Can I call you my friend? All the silver lined clouds are getting’ stormed out For a Northwest Kid tryin’ to figure it out I’m a Northwest Kid lookin’ to figure it out I’m a Northwest Kid lookin’ to figure it out Nothin’s back at home ‘cept a stupid old man Who never knew could so he tells me I can’t… Use to listen, I use to listen My uncle was different he had a helluva way Use to make me laugh with every word he’d say… I miss him, still miss him All the memories slowly fadin’ away For a Northwest kid tryin’ to find his own way I’m a Northwest Kid lookin’ to figure it out I’m a Northwest Kid lookin’ to figure it out Austin, Little Rock, some little town in Mississippi Asheville, Unicoi South of Johnson City Well they’re all the same only different names I’ve said more words than you care to hear But thanks for lettin’ me get it out in the clear… I’m thinking, Can’t stop thinking…

To be let go is a hard way to fall down From the start I’m lettin’ you know I’m a rock on California solid ground I’m the king of lettin’ go Let’s keep it superficial Strictly romance unofficial Everything but serious Cause I’ve been scared by experience Well hearts get broken all of the time I don’t wanna break yours Don’t want you to break mine If you could see my history Wouldn’t be such a mystery It’s not a matter of perfection It’s just a method of protection Lives get burned to ruins all of the time I don’t wanna burn yours Don’t want you to ruin mine I’m the king of lettin’ go I’m the king of lettin’ go

Gave it Back 04:32
Got rid of the gift I gave you last Christmas I gave it to a girl in bowling green It’s been in the back a’my closet like the sadness you left me It’s only recently I been recovering I really don’t know the girl that well She’s what you call a friend of a friend All I know is she don’t live in this town And there’s a chance I won’t see that damn jacket again I handed you my affection And every ounce of my love You returned it all with rejection Yeah you gave it back Yeah you gave it back Well I picked up on a good sign this morning Can’t remember your telephone numbers at all But I still taste your favorite sweet candy And hear the nickname your little niece use to call I’ve given up on why it went wrong I guess we’re both better this way But given up on why it’s all gone Doesn’t mean I don’t miss you in so many ways Oh I miss you in so many ways Yeah you gave it back Oh you gave it back Yeah you gave it back Oh you gave it back

Highway Side 02:05
I been drivin’ route twenty-four To a job that’s such a chore I pass a man looks a lot like me He’s surely got a hard luck story I wonder how did he get there As I see him in my rear view mirror Somethin’ tells me he and I are the same Walkin’ on a thin white line Watchin all the cars go by Hopin’ for a northbound ride Down on the highway side Hitchhikin’ route twenty-four God I wish I knew what’s in store A man passin’ looks a lot like me Except he’s on easy street I wonder how did he get there As I see him in his rear view mirror Somethin’ tells me he and I are the same Walkin’ on a thin white line Watchin all the cars go by Hopin’ for a northbound ride Down on the highway side
5.
Want Me Too 03:58
I’m lookin’ for someone special Someone a whole lot like you I’ve gotta ask one simple question Hey baby do you want me too? There’s only two possible answers But only one will do Forget about all the circumstances Hey baby do you want me too? ‘Cause everytime we get together I get a feelin’ that I never knew I could stay with you forever Hey baby do you want me to? Late at night while the whole worlds sleepin’ I lie awake just dreamin’ of you I wonder is there a secret your keepin’ Hey baby do you want me too?
6.
I’m over here yeah baby Who knows where you are Just to be near you lately I all but fall apart I keep thinkin’ if I’m patient You might call Oh, how it feels when you fall Nowhere’s too far to find The one that reaches you inside Search the earth cross the sky Nowhere’s too far tonight What if I never really Saw your face again What if you left this city Took off on a reckless whim I’ll be right here With all the hope I’ve ever had Oh, when you come back Oh, if you ever come back Nowhere’s too far to find The one who reaches you inside Search the earth cross the sky Nowhere’s too far tonight Nowhere’s too far tonight

Jamestown 04:26
He’s a dirty dealin’ kid Robbin’ a ninety-nine cent store His leather jacket keepin’ hid All the stuff he’s got no use for It’s a daily double cross When you’re livin’ a big mistake Cause your daddy took the loss And he never got an even break In this a factory town that’s past its prime It’s time I packed my bags and got on down the line Far from Jamestown… oh Jamestown Nothin’ goes and nothin’ comes around in Jamestown There’s some carneys comin’ through To the food land parkin’ lot With wheels and lights and things to do And we all go cause it’s all we got When you’re stuck down at the bottom Where you never see the top You live to ride the Gravitron Just to feel the bottom drop It’s a factory town that’s past its prime It’s time I packed my bags and got on down the line Far from Jamestown… oh Jamestown Nothin’ goes and nothin’ comes around in Jamestown Before I wake up and find I’m past my prime I’ll pack my bags and get on down the line Far from Jamestown… oh Jamestown Nothin’ goes and nothin’ comes Nothin’ goes and nothin’ comes around in Jamestown

Endless Road 03:24
It’s not like I’m dying fast Only a little bit every day Helpless like child yes I need a good love to stay Where you been hanging around Are you anywhere near me now Turn your eyes to find mine Cause I’m lookin’ out to be found I’ve been running so hard But I can’t keep going alone I’m asking you to walk with me Down an endless road Down an endless road No use in lying I’ll never be a perfect man So I’ll stop trying Drop that measure from my hand I would never ask of you Anything you don’t want I only hope you need it to This love that I want
9.
Lonely 04:39
Time off with out pay Thought of taking that today Instead I’m here And not all there Call my name two times Need you to to recognize Someone needs my attention Out of my own dimension Lonely in my own dimension All I need is a little of her love All I need is all of her love Take a walk on a short break Take a trip on a curb that’s raised & I go tumbling throw my hands straight out Kneeling Bleeding on the sidewalk Looking down at daycare color chalk And the red drops fall On a warm yellow sun And I’m Lonely in a warm yellow sun All I need is a little of her love, like a kid yeah All I need is all of her love All I need is a little of her love, I’m thinking All I need is all of her love Lonely in my own dimension Lonely in my own dimension Lonely in a warm yellow sun

Agree 04:07
Fallen apart and torn down, Fall of that year she turned me around, When she said to me, a few choice words She said things'll never seem to get better The way you talk right now you just make'm worse I know we don't have a lot But I say you deal with what you've got Besides you know, You've got me So I smiled at her and nodded to agree Self pity was my middle name When she walked in that bar and whispered my name Louder and louder 'till I looked up With tears in her eyes she spoke those words And I was speechless from what I'd just heard But I opened my mouth to try to speak But actions are real and talk is cheap Besides you know, words aren't for me So I smiled at her and nodded to agree Moma lived on the outskirts of town In a two room house built on family ground It was the only thing that she could claim Her social security and all her savings slipped away Until the bills came in that she knew she couldn't pay So she came to me with tears in her eyes Saying, "What can I do? I just wanna die" So I held her hand, and said you got me She smiled and nodded to agree
11.
I’m up late tonight cause I’m feelin’ so bad I Try to write it all down I realize all I have Is time… to slowly get better I’m tryin’ so hard to pull myself together I haven’t felt myself in two or so years Every now and again I just can’t stop my tears They burn… burn when the fall I’m tryin so hard cause lately I’ve won at nothin’ at all I’m not who I use to be In the mirror I don’t recognize what I see Please Lord hear me in my desperate plea… and Help me find my way far from Kansas City misery I guess it’s live or die, fight or fall Stay in bed or answer the piercing call It’s time… to slowly get better I’m tryin’ so hard to pull my torn self together I’ll have to cross the great Mississippi To escape this loathsome state I’ve always feared the water But this is one swim I must make Help me find my way far from Kansas City misery Help me find my way far from this Kansas City misery
12.
Let’s start talkin’ Let’s stop lying about It all feels right We’re caught in traffic staullin’ And it’s time we turned at the light I don’t know where we're going I only know where we are And I just see that we’re headed into the dark Where you goin’ so late On second take well I think that I know It’s plain to see you’ll go dancin’ Out with the girls down to dance hall row… oh, I know What do you say that you and I Sit right down and talk about tonight And make it gone or make it right I’m not saying no fun I’m just want to settle this first Please go and say that you’re mine And don’t treat this love like a curse… its no curse
13.
I can’t thank you enough There’s to much to say Everything you’ve ever done To help me on my way I can not ever repay I can’t thank you enough There’s now way to describe I just can’t explain What I feel deep inside No matter how hard I ever try I can’t thank you enough When no one around reaches a hand out You were my best damn friend Now that I’ve found you never cared about Who I was or where I’d been How Can I ever begin? I can’t thank you enough I just hope that I’ll be Everything in this world You told me I could be In time we’ll see I can’t thank you enough When no one around reaches a hand out You are my best damn friend Now that I’ve found you never cared about Who I was or where I’d been How Can I ever begin? I can’t thank you enough I can’t thank you enough
