Back in July 04:51
All through the day The hours were hanging on Like leaves that have fallen But never touch ground And I’m not the same As yesterday But it was always that way When you were around I went away So pen me your name And I’ll send a crate Of artisan goods Oh me, oh my I don’t want your apple pies I just want to be Back in July That cruise where we met You were my best bet For having a fun time While standing in line Our families both knew What we were getting into Caught kissing on the couch In your sister’s room Staying out late Dancing on the deck That thrill turned to chill As soon as you left And oh me, oh my I don’t want your pretty lies I wanna be Back in July Back in July That night around the fire I was lost in them black ember thoughts Sitting close by your side I was there too Under the same moon When the fire died It died in us too That was just ok I appreciate you babe I'll be on my way Here’s looking at you Oh me, oh my I don’t wanna catch your eye I just wanna be back in July Back in July Was I in love with you Or who I thought you were? Had dreamed of all year Who I thought I knew That dream quickly died Soon as we were apart The letters went stale As months drove by Those nights were so sweet Much more than the pie You mailed me in a box After summer went by Oh me, oh my I don’t wanna weep and cry Just wanna be back in July Back in July

Caught high and dry out in the cold Riding all night to the crossing road One way leads to trouble all the others seem to follow If only I knew where to go Well, your choice was made in the games you played And now fate will say if you get to stay You’ll recognize what you know That’s the way it always goes Choose the familiar, well worn way Caught in the middle of a shootout Between my longing and my love I can’t hide forever Find a line and cut the tether We’ll see how far I can run Can this be it? Can this be the avenue winding home? Can you feel it? Can you feel the pull of the unknown? I can hear your footsteps falling hard Now that you’ve climbed out of your dusty car I hoped you’d choose this path Without stopping to do the math And now our future seems quite clear Well I lost my phone so I couldn’t You would never have to call It was a long ride and so I didn’t You don’t have to explain at all And now we’ll take a chance That this could be the answer That we’ve both been longing for Can you see it? Can you see how loneliness takes its toll? Can this be it? Can this be the avenue winding home? Back home Some will stay, some will go Folks that find that old crossing road Life ain’t just a highway I’ve seen enough in my day It runs for miles untold Can this be it? Can this be the avenue winding home? Can you feel it? Can you feel the pull of the unknown?

Over the hillside Beyond the treeline Where the sun shines through Out there is someone You said you were coming That was a long time ago Yeah, but these holes in your pockets They won’t leave you alone Now that you’re out on your own And we’ll find all the parts That fell away when you crashed down From high in the clouds You know I’d like to see you As you are, as you have been And always will be in the end Yeah, but these holes in your pockets They won’t leave you alone This place is a coffin And it’s killing you slow The weight is upon us As we rise through the stone Over the hillside Beyond the treeline Where the sun shines through Out there is someone You said you were coming That was a long time ago

She’ll meet you at the corner With a hug and a smile She don’t take no guff She’ll stay a long while More at home at the farm Than in her uptown clothes She’s a rare gentle breed Known as a Honky Tonk Rose A Honky Tonk Rose Has some very big thorns Where the cold winds blow That’s where they were formed You can’t cut them with a knife She’s a hard one to know Where the cedars grow You’ll find a Honky Tonk rose You’ll take her out dancing She’s got other ideas There’s no need for romancing She doesn’t know what that is You’ll cling tight to one another She’s scared and it shows Just another night in the life of Our fragile Honky Tonk Rose A Honky Tonk Rose Has some very sharp thorns Where the neon glows That’s where they were formed You can’t cut them with a knife She’s hot and she knows Where the whiskey flows You’ll find a Honky Tonk rose Oh, believe me, I love her For all that she is I’ve helped her out of the gutter And babysat her two kids She’s got a heart of gold She’ll be the first to let you know That she’s nothing special Our little Honky Tonk Rose A Honky Tonk Rose Has lost her thorns Content now, she’s chose To live a life without harm She reads the papers when she likes Easy at it goes No more lady of the night Our friend the Honky Tonk rose A little Honky Tonk rose Our little Honky Tonk rose Our fragile Honky Tonk rose

I am hopeless on Hope Island Set adrift without a sail Following the ocean’s lead And I am surely bound to fail When I first met you, you were so shy Could barely stand to look in my eyes And then we kissed and it was too late A lonely heart should never tempt fate And now I’m broken, I am crying The love between us slowly dying Deep down inside there was a flame Now only embers doused with shame Well we were lost but we were happy Dancing here and there and laughing Dead to the world but so alive inside Of course it wasnt everlasting Now I’m angry and so strung out After uncovering the truth about The lonely life you chose to lead Filled with lies, betrayal, and greed I am hopeless on Hope Island Set adrift without a sail Following the ocean’s lead And I am surely bound to fail I’m a wave out in the ocean I feel you and we’ll meet again Now the flame’s out in the open For once in our lifetime I am hopeless on Hope Island Set adrift without a sail Following the ocean’s lead And I am surely bound to fail

You know I’m so familiar And you know a lie from the truth You found something inside so peculiar And I can find it too But I can’t cry for you Life is too short to be losing And I don’t have time to be blue The secret you search for is so close And I can’t find it too But I can’t cry No I can’t cry No I can’t cry For you Baby, I had such a good time The way you wanted me to You got nothing to hide in your blue eyes I can’t hide it too But I can’t cry No I can’t cry No I can’t cry For you You saw me through rose glasses It was too good to be true So babe, let those tears light up your lashes And I will see this through But I can’t cry No I can’t cry No I can’t cry For you

Sometimes 04:31
Sometimes I lay down and cry I don’t know why I don’t know why And other times I just run and hide I don’t know why I don’t know why When it all goes dark I know you’ll fill the spark Feeding my flaming heart Love will give me a fresh start I know you will stick around Feet on the ground We will get found And in the air, life it grows Flickers and flows Glistens and glows Going both near and far We will feel who we are Building our strength and grace Climbing those hills we face When we reach the top We can bump cheers and stop Taking in all the views Creating this moment anew So take a leap and follow your soul Lose control Be made whole Freedom is yours, just look within Face those fears Unleash those tears Muscle, blood, and bone Your choice is all your own Tend to your garden, now Roll up your sleeves, grab your plow Hitch up your strongest team Take to the fields and go Whatever you plant will thrive A forest of fruits you design And be at peace Be at peace Be at peace

Fame You put a bottle of whiskey in my hand The sole survivor of the pain Light it up and feel no shame No shame Growing old Was so far from that old episode Twenty five and on, we let it all go Got me running any way from home Any way from home I was on the last step of beaten path She put me on her back, she won’t even crack Pour another round, we can feel it out Down on my luck Afraid of all the things I’d said I’d do Crippled by fate’s relentless truth And now I’m fine, cause I’ve got you Cause I’ve got you Here it is on a different page It wasn’t a stage This is your way Days go by with a salty taste Without a lime No sense of time The harder feelings will wash away But come on back With the break of day Can’t hold in all this fear and pain But I can drink it down Overcome it somehow I was on the last step of beaten path She put me on her back, she won’t even crack Pour another round, we can feel it out She put me on her back, she won’t even crack

Hanging On 01:28
I was hanging on to nothing But we were on something The ledge that caught my hand How it scared me, way back when Now we’re here again Hanging on Hanging on
