Track Name: Northwest Kid
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…
Track Name: King of Letting Go
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
Track Name: Gave it Back
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
Track Name: Highway Side
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
Track Name: Want Me Too
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?
Track Name: Nowhere's Too Far
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
Track Name: Jamestown
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
Track Name: Endless Road
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
Track Name: Lonely
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
Track Name: Agree
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
Track Name: Kansas City Misery
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
Track Name: Into the Dark
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
Track Name: Can't Thank You Enough
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
