Track Name: Nobody's Queen
I walk 1000 miles towards you
without taking one step back
now I’m nowhere near California
but I’m closer to the heart then I’ve ever been before
so take off your boots and take the back seat
come lay with me awhile and give me what I need
you give me what I need

you’ve got something on me

oh sweet honey
you had a penny for my thoughts
when all I had’s a dime and nickel stuck in a quarter slot
I was in a rambling town
between Barstow and that great North West
wasn’t looking to be nobody’s queen
just looking for my own type of reverie
reveal to me

you’ve got something on me

didn’t have no evens just the odds
I was heading south wasted by the sun
you held my eyes when there was to much light to see
the world only completes the very best parts of me
and you give me what I need

and you’ve got something on me
Track Name: Wooden Boat
wooden boat carry you out to sea
gonna carry you free
sail your ocean deep and wide
I’ll be your bay
I’ll keep track of the water rise
keep my eye on the tide
regard the storms that will take their time
to carry you back to me

honey I lied to you
but you lied too
you told me forever
forever
you’d be forever

on the street that carried your name
it took me back before the game
strung you out
left you dry
hung you up on your own life
there ain’t no wrong
ain’t no right
your just a man who gave me your lies
ain’t no wrong
ain’t no right
there is just a field waiting out the time

honey I lied to you
but you lied too
you lied too
you told me forever
forever
you’d be forever


I’ve staked my claim
I’ve done the time
it takes one very very old love to die
I’ve been alone and I’ve been free
I’ve been cursed to deserted dreams
and I’ve been alone and I’ve been free
and now I’m walking on two feet

honey I lied to you
but you lied too
you lied too
you told me forever
forever
you’d be forever
Track Name: Loretta
devil got her down
spoke her name out loud
took what he wanted
and left her to the crowd

she don’t want to take no more
don’t want to loose her faith no more
don’t want to keep keeping score
want to keep coming back
for more no more

oh Loretta
sweet Loretta Lynn
your dancing on your feet child
like you’re searching for the ground
but you aint gonna find it this time around

she came out west
with ribbons in her hair
and flowers on her dress
started singing in dive bars
honky tonks
driving beat up cars

she came in strong enough
to pull a river down
and travel the cost
but it was to much weight to bare
to many people
with too much despair

oh Loretta
sweet Loretta lynn
you’re dancing on your feet child
like your searching for the ground
but you ain’t gonna find it
this time around

she could have lived forever like this
in that old white house
on a miners kiss
she could have lied down like this
with the grain onto submissiveness

but devil got her down
spoke her name out loud
took what he wanted
and left her to the crowd
Track Name: Mark Of Cain
its been a long time
I wonder what you now know
now that you’ve got the mark of cain
you’ve been sleeping with ables daughters
and if you would have come with me
I would have shown you mystery
and if you would have come with me
I would have kept you mysterious to me

but you said it all
you said it all
you said it all
when you said nothing

so don’t pretend now to be king
when you never even wore a crown
and don’t you say that you were free
just cause you weren’t ever around
and don’t hold your wings
close against your back
and don’t haunt me in my dreams
when you haunt me in my past

and you said it all
you said it all
you said it all
when you said nothing
Track Name: Fault Lines
I don’t go no expectations
from the fault lines of my youth
they’ve been running me so fast
and furiously
they’ve been unraveling my truth

I want to watch myself walk away
from everyone and everything
that stood in my way
its like a dagger straight to the heart
when you find out you’ve been playing
all the wrong parts

I’ve been witching with the water
I’ve been messing with the rain
I’ve been holding onto nothing
now there’s nothing left to gain

if you hear me in warning
you better run to find a place
in a world that sees only what it wants to see
you better find the sight of grace

wouldn’t act like I’ve become the martyr
wouldn’t act like I’ve become the prey
the road is long
and I’ve got a heavy load to carry
I’ve better gather up my strength

I’ve been witching with the water
I’ve been messing with the rain
I’ve been holding onto nothing
now there’s nothing left to gain
Track Name: Endure You
you don’t keep your arms outstretched
you pull them back in
you’re a man
you’re sensitive
this valley wouldn’t flood in may or june
but you wouldn’t be around to see it through its change
its always changing

I want to endure you
I want to make you my friend
I want what cant be undone

it’s the way you move
the way you speak
the distance that you keep
come to me
come to me
we’ve done it all
bent the lines
showed ourselves what we didn’t leave behind
didn’t want to leave you behind

I want to endure you
I want to make you my friend
I want what cant be undone

I will not fail you
I may not succeed
but I will stand beside you and breath
I will ask the sea
and the rain up in the sky
to soak up this piece of earth for you & i

I want to endure you
I want to make you my friend
I want what cant be undone
Track Name: Of A Life
we take a walk for awhile
down the bustling streets
of a life that we once used to keep

so don’t take me someplace
that I never understood
back to those days
when you were my man

how do we know
how do we know
how do we know
how to believe
when thought becomes the known
and the known becomes the deed

its one side against the water
one side against the damn
it was you against the world
it was us against the land

you were my water
you were ocean land & stream
you carried my heart
and everything in between

how do we know
how do we know
how do we know
how to believe
when thought becomes the known
and the known becomes the deed

and now we’ve wasted our time
on unnecessary lines
broken foundation
under which we will lie

how do we bridge
the deep and the wide
all the sides
bridge the gaps in time

how do we know
how do we know
how to believe
when though becomes the known
and the known becomes the deed
Track Name: Buffalo Creek
these day are gonna last
longer then they have before
and if I take you down to buffalo creek
you better take your clothes off and come swim with me
cause it’s not cold and I’ll keep you safe
from the mysteries that hide underneath our wake
so don’t let your heart be thick with hurt
or heavy with the weight of your tale

cause I’m gonna show you
how to love
I’m gonna show you
how to love
all of yourself

when our house is made of rain
and the grey overtakes
most of our days
will you hold your head to the sky
or will you drink
yourself dry
it was you it was you who could
who could pretend
that living living living isn’t living
without living with all of your sins

but I’m gonna show you
how to love
I’m gonna show you
how to love
all of yourself

and if our time ever runs thin on strings
can we take whatever back we’ve said in grief
and if our memories deplete in scenes
will you remember why you were drawn to me
it was one of those crazy nights
where love was out to feast beneath the paleness of light

and we showed each other
how to love
we showed each other
how to love
all of ourselves
