Where The Heart Is (feat. Joshua Thomas)


Home is where the heart is
Home is where you are
This town feels like it's stone cold
All the year round

And no one waves you when you're passing by
Like they could see the sorrow in your eyes
So won't you come around
So won't you come around, love?

'Cause you've got a smile that lights up the room
I don't care for much as long as I have you here

Home is where the heart is
Home is where you are
This town could never trick us
Neither bring us down

And no one waves you when you're passing by
Like they could see the sorrow in your eye
So won't you come around
So won't you come around, love?


Shotgun To The Heart


My self destructive mind
The ugly side of you and I
It's building up inside
It's driving me far

Shotgun to the heart
Their taste stuck inside your mouth
The kiss I held so dear
It wasn't mine

In too deep
Can't hold strong
I cursed your name outloud
I loved you all along
I cursed your name outloud
I loved you all along

Nowadays my pride
Has gained a whole new meaning
You had to let it go, so you could breathe

Shotgun to the heart
You're all I've known of everything
God, if you leave you'll take the best of me



Light You Up


Dear, I guess that I've known you forever
From far away, from long ago
You know hearts like ours hold a promise
That has been kept for so long

I'll be fine if you walk me home tonight
You light me up inside
Forget the people
They can't do you harm
I'll light you up inside

And I say can you hear me
I'm trying to clear out my thoughts
'Cause I just cannot give up the one thing that keeps me alive

I'll be fine if you walk me home tonight
You light me up inside
Forget the people
They can't do you harm
I'll light you up inside


Southern Home


I don't take pride in being lonely
But I take pride in who I am
I was born in a southern home
You just wash off the dust on your hands

Can't you tell my eyes are heavy
Can't you hear it, my voice is sore
All I do is try and try harder
Everything just turns out wrong
You just wash off the dust and go home
Everything just turns out wrong

I don't take pride in throwing punches
I take pride in what I do
I was born in a southern home
I was taught 'bout the right thing to do

Can't you tell my eyes are heavy
Can't you hear it, my voice is sore
All I do is try and try harder
Everything just turns out wrong
You just wash off the dust and go home
Everything just turns out wrong


I Couldn't Reach You


I'm tired my head is pulsing like a bomb
I was found on the ground
With a stolen wallet and phone
You know they have no respect for us
You know they have no respect for us

They took you away from me
To somewhere cold nearby the sea
Where I couldn't reach you
And they burnt our houses down
With no living soul around
I cannot prove it
So take it from me

And they can burn down bridges
And buildings and stores
But they won't break our spirit
'Cause we do have heart
You know they have no respect for us
You know they have no respect for us


Treehouse


Climb on a tree just to watch for the people below
Climb on a tree 'cause I'm small and I'm awful alone
Through sad looking faces and white pickett fences you shine through
So I reach out my arms and I hope that you sing to my tune

There's a concert tonight
With lights burning bright
Won't you please, please come along

There's a concert tonight
With the drums beating hard
Won't you please, please sing along



Arrow of My Ways (feat. Greg Thomas)


Like a horse you cannot break
I was restless and astray
I was meant to be alone 'till I met you

So much younger than I look
Tearing sutures from my wounds
Was I ever expected to heal up

Until you pull me out
Let me in
Raise me up
Take on me

Talking 'bout the way you move me
Through still waters
Talking 'bout the strength that holds your heart
Even though I'm gray and hollow
Give me reason
Say you'll be the arrow of my ways



Jamie


There are lines on your face and your pockets are empty
You’re often let down and don’t think you can make it
But you’re beautiful the way you are
Don’t try to change it’s just the way you are

And it’s coming from below
Trembling the earth
Calling for your name
They’re calling for your name

Oh, Jamie, don’t go shooting guns like that
You’re sleeping on your clothes and listening to ballads
Oh, Jamie, don’t go shooting guns like this
You go and prove them wrong
You can do better than me



Carry On


I won't live to see my beliefs come true
I will die to choke on a bone
'Cause there ain't no love as clean as a dove
So carry on, my darling

Plunge your sharpened knife
Through my naked flesh
The only thing that's still mine
For I've given you all that I ever had
So carry on, my darling

Like a hurricane destroys the land
Disappointment cuts through my life
Leaving nothing good but a broken pride
So carry on, my darling

What a fool
I put my trust where I can't see, where I can't touch
But I'm no soldier, it ain't no war
I am yours for what it's worth
So carry on, my darling

Come Back


It all starts with a tiny step
And if you can't do it I'll carry you on my back
Let's go where you wanna go
Let's go where the river flows
Then we can go swimming
'Cause you and me are meant to be
It's true, I treated you uncarefully
And if I asked you so very nicely
Would you come back to me
And then we can go swimming
I'll treat right
I'll buy you candy bars
I'll be your fiancee
I walk the line
I'll make this right
So we can be together
'Cause you and me are meant to be
It's true, I treated you uncarefully
And if I asked you so very nicely
Would you come back to me
So we can be together

 

Bonfires

 

Dance, dance
Shuffle your feet with me
You throw your arms
Around my hips
And I can barely tell we're not alone
Get close
I love to feel your hair
Run through my cheeks
And around my neck
Please, don't let us move offbeat
'Cause if you stop
I move
You walk away
My heart won't stay the same
So say
You will sway the night away

Old Folks (New Year)

 

My crooked teeth
Your polished shoes
My weary head
Your lousy tunes
I don't know why I do the things I do
I'm all bad news
And we don't look as sharp as we should
But the squeaking of my shoes will lead me back to you
And everyday it's not the same
But the sparkle in your eye light up the life in me
And when we age we'll watch the loons
We'll look back just like old folks do
We're like an arrow in a bow
The far you stretch it, the far it goes
And we won't look as sharp as we should
But we'll see the world together like we're meant to do
And in the end I'll hold your hand
And as clear as day we'll both understand

 

Darkest Horse

 

Down the rail road the prairie air is running heavy
And your clothes are worn out from dust
From just laying there
And if given the chance would she lie beside you
And avoid to recall that you were ever in love
She's the darkest horse you'll ever see
She will break her back to hurt your knees
She's the darkest horse you'll ever know
Running even faster through the snow

 

Bird and Whale

 

Oh babe don't you know
Don't you want something to go home to?
You've been hurt for far too long
And your bed has the shape of your wounds
It's two against the world but we'll be brave
I thank god for the day I heard your name
Our hearts work like an engine
Steady we remain
Pulsing from the distance
But the sound is nice and clear
Don't go
Just stay right here
Oh darling can't you see
What's in store for you is the sea
I'm an island far from the coast
Your embrace is the only thing I know
It's two against the world but we'll be brave
I thank god for the day I heard your name
Our hearts work like an engine
Steady we remain
Pulsing from the distance
But the sound is nice and clear
Don't go
Just stay right here
