Track Name: Neon
Bright-eyed and blushing
I turned to the world.
The pallid city
stared back at me.
Stole a portion of light
From my dreaming eyes.
Turned it to neon
along the streets.

The covetous world
set its gaze on my heart.
It needed a torch
to light up the dark.
It tore me apart
And stole the stars from my eyes.
Now I'm just neon
blinking perpetually

Where does the city get its light
But from the innocence of its immigrants?
Where does the city get its light
But from the innocence of its immigrants.

The next time you drive
down that long boulevard,
Don't look at the sky
for its handful of stars:
Look at the neon
illuminate the dark--
The city's alive with the light
from the innocent hearts.

The covetous world
set its gaze on my heart.
It needed a torch
to light up the dark.
It tore me apart.
Track Name: Because You Must
Mr. Hewitt gets up every day at four
Makes his coffee, grabs his keys and he's out the door
It's a nightmare
It's a sentence
Nothin' in life is free
It's your life here
Just remember
So what's it gonna be

You work hard
Work your fingers
To bone that turns to dust
And you make an honest living
There's no choice because you must

Jane's a waitress at the shabby corner cafe
The people need her to bring food and make it snappy
It's a nightmare
It's a sentence
Nothin' in life is free
It's your life here
Just remember
So what's it gonna be

You work hard
Work your fingers
To bone that turns to dust
And you make an honest living
There's no choice because you must

Forty hours a week pushin' buttons
Forty hours a week, you still got nothin'
All the doors that you see, they keep shuttin'
Traverse or travail
Fight tooth or fight nail
Break your back and prevail
You must

You work hard
Work your fingers
To bone that turns to dust
And you make an honest living
There's no choice because you must
You must
Track Name: Another Shot
I knew you missed me when you pulled the trigger
Before the bullet passed by my shoulder

Then I waited for another shot to ring out
Then I waited for another shot to ring out

Nighttime hot and daytime colder
Before I laid down in the clover

Then I waited for another shot to ring out
Then I waited for another shot to ring out

I knew you missed me when you pulled the trigger
Before the bullet passed by my shoulder

Your aim
Won't matter in the dark
It's not hard
To miss an incandescent heart
Run now
I will give you a headstart
Go on

I sorely missed you when you pulled the trigger
My world has, since then, grown much bigger

Still I'm waiting for another shot to ring out
Still I'm waiting for another shot
Track Name: What You Make It
You say you don't have a dime
If you want, I'll give you mine
Give you mine
You say you don't have a clue
Of exactly what to do
I'll clear it up for you

It's not complicated
It's just what you make it

You were first and now you're last
Did you steer off of the track
Off the track
You think life is full of lies
With no room for compromise
Open your eyes

It's not complicated
It's just what you make it

It's not complicated
It's just what you make it
You can try and shake it
But it catches up to you
It's not complicated
It's just what you make it
You can try and shake it
But it catches up to you

It's not complicated
It's just what you make it

It's not complicated
It's just what you make it
Track Name: Buried My Heart
He's got somewhere to go
He's got somewhere to be
Was it Chicago
Or was it New York City

My friends are all askin' me
When they get to meet my man
I said maybe next month
When he gets back from Amsterdam

He says "oh baby
You know I really love you so"
He sent it via text message
From Toledo
He sent it via text message
From Toledo

I buried my heart six feet underground
I'm waiting around for a boy out of town
I'm gettin' lonely
I'm gettin' lonely

I buried my heart six feet underground
I'm waiting around for a boy out of town
I'm gettin' lonely
I'm gettin' lonely

He's got a little twinkle around his eyes
That I just want to eat up
He's got a little way when he says his goodbyes
That just makes me heat up

I buried my heart six feet underground
I'm waiting around for a boy out of town
I'm gettin' lonely
I'm gettin' lonely

I buried my heart six feet underground
I'm waiting around for a boy out of town
I'm gettin' lonely
I'm gettin' lonely

I buried my heart six feet underground
I'm waiting around for a boy out of town
I'm gettin' lonely
I'm gettin' lonely

She buried her heart
She buried her heart
She buried her heart

I buried my heart six feet underground
I'm waiting around for a boy out of town
I'm gettin' lonely
I'm gettin' lonely

I buried my heart six feet underground
I'm waiting around for a boy out of town
I'm gettin' lonely
I'm gettin' lonely
Track Name: Lost My Way
Nobody's hurt me like this before
Nobody's heard me say this before
How can a strong heart like this be sore
Nobody's hurt me like this before

I lost my way
Lost my sanity
My sanity
I saw you hide
Beneath the canopy
Of vanity

I had a dream it was a lonely night
I had a dream I was a lonely knight
I wore armor and my horse was white
I had a dream it was a lonely night

I lost my way
Lost my sanity
My sanity
I saw you hide
Beneath the canopy
Of vanity

Fate in the night sky
The stars are aligned
But fate has no answer
And stars aren't a sign


I lost my way
Lost my sanity
My sanity
I saw you hide
Beneath the canopy
Of vanity

I lost my way
Lost my sanity
My sanity
I saw you hide
Beneath the canopy
Of vanity
Track Name: Allison
Out in Richmond there's a pretty girl you've never met
She lives on the corner of Hopes & Dreams and the cross-street Not-Just-Yet

Ooh, ooh
She knows just where she stands
Ooh, ooh
Wish I could see her again

The last time that I saw her face it was the middle of July
She showed us around, and made us laugh, and when I left her I cried

Ooh, ooh
She's the best kind of friend
Ooh, ooh
Wish I could see her again

Allison, Allison
Allison, Allison

She's written books and toured the world, but she's still innocent
She doesn't always say what she thinks, but you know just what she meant

Ooh, ooh
She's the best kind of friend
Ooh, ooh
Wish I could see her again

Allison, Allison
Allison, Allison

She's on the cusp of greatness, but she doesn't know it yet
All she knows is what she gives is what she's gonna get

Ice lays beyond her doorstep
Spring springs from her soul
Any time she's not near
Your heart feels the hole

Ooh, ooh
She shines so bright
Ooh, ooh
She shines with all her might

Ooh, ooh
She's the best kind of friend
Ooh, ooh
Wish I could see her again

Allison, Allison
Allison, Allison
Allison, Allison
Allison, Allison
Track Name: Fool's Gold
Seven years
Seven thousand "I love yous"
Wedding cake
You knew it was a mistake

Just another tragic story
And I guess you just want the glory

Leave me be
'Cause baby, I don't want your kind of freedom
Too many seasons
Too many reasons to let it go

Kingdom come
And your will was surely done
Wedding bed
Wore that dress and forgot what you said

Just another tragic story
And I guess you just want the glory

You let me down
With your plated aluminum crown
Only fool's gold
Could do justice to the lies that you told

You let me down
With your plated aluminum crown
Only fool's gold
Could do justice to the lies that you told
Track Name: One of a Kind (Ara's Song)
They broke your heart
On Thanksgiving Day
Forgot all about you
Had nothin' to say
You went home and cried
You didn't' know why
You let them get to you
Just keep your chin up
You'll be okay

He broke your heart
He left you alone
He had somebody else
Waiting at home
You thought it was love
And maybe it was
But not the kind that you want
Just keep your chin up
You belong on a throne

Your mother told you
When you were little
Your face was all freckled
From the lies that you told
You tried to be good
You did what you could
But it was never enough
Just keep your chin up
You're beautiful

Oh how the past can make
The present hard to bear
You want a better life
But don't know if you dare
You were dealt a bad hand
There's no doubt in my mind
But I want you to know
You're one of a kind

You went off to college
You got your degree
You're writing a novel
And makin' money
You're changing your stars
You've gotten so far
Everything will work out right
Just keep your chin up
Just wait and see

Just keep your chin up
Just wait and see
Just keep your chin up
Just wait and see
Just keep your chin up
Just wait and see
.....
Track Name: Lazy Stone
Someone's knockin' at my door
While I'm sitting on my floor
Someone's ringin' up my phone
While I pretend that I'm not home

No moss
Will grow
On a rolling stone

They keep on coming back for more
With all that knockin' at my door
Knockin' 'till their fist is sore
From all that knockin' at my door

No moss
Will grow
On a rolling stone

The moss is always greener
On the other side of your lazy stone
Track Name: New Mexico
Oh, I flew off the road
Out in New Mexico
There was nothin'
No, nothin' I could do
With my baby beside me
Woo hoo hoo

Oh, I flew off the road
In Thoreau, New Mexico
Saw my life
Flash right before my eyes
Cool as a cucumber
I didn't even cry

Oh, I flew off the road
Out in New Mexico
I could only
Say my baby's name
Ice on the road
We were a puck
In a hockey game

Oh, we hit that lonesome ditch
And the night was black as pitch
There was nothin'
No nothin' I could do
With my baby beside me
Woo hoo hoo

When we stopped there in the snow
In Thoreau, New Mexico
My baby kissed me
Smack-dab on my lips
Face-to-face with death
You know the thing to do is kiss

Oh, I flew off the road
Out in New Mexico
There was nothin'
No, nothin' I could do
With my baby beside me
Woo hoo hoo
With my baby beside me
Woo hoo hoo
With my baby beside me
Woo hoo hoo
Track Name: No Ordinary
Looking back on that night
Drinking wine in the parking lot
I remember the way
You smiled and said my name

Oh your love it took me
By the heart and shook me
I didn't know 'til then I was sleeping
You saved me
From ordinary
You saved me

You turned my life around

People always said
Love like this didn't exist
I slept for a hundred years
You woke me with a single kiss


Oh your love it took me
By the heart and shook me
I didn't know 'til then I was sleeping
You saved me
From ordinary
You saved me

Oh your love it took me
By the heart and shook me
I didn't know 'til then I was sleeping
You saved me
From ordinary
You saved me

We sat on the porch you said you'd love me forever
We kissed in the car and I told you I'd never
Leave you or hurt you I'd only make you happy
I won't ever make you sad I won't ever make you sorry
You've given me an extraordinary life
When you married me I swear I felt a light
Shining down from somewhere above
This is no ordinary love
Track Name: Like You Were Before
It seems like just yesterday
We were walkin' hand in hand
But we both went our separate ways
We didn't know what life had planned

So much time has slipped away
So many years gone by
But we forgot and forgave
We both knew the reasons why

Footsteps at my door
You're there like you were before
But it's only in my mind
'Cause you went and left us behind

Oh I
Don't know why
You had to go away
Every day
I miss your face
So many things
I had left to say

I remember that guitar
I remember our first kiss
But I didn't know time was short
Afterall, we were just kids

I found out yesterday
You had left this life for good
But I can still see the smile on your face
And I can't believe that you could

Footsteps at my door
You're there like you were before
But it's only in my mind
'Cause you went and left us behind

Oh I
Don't know why
You had to go away
Every day
I miss your face
But I just know
I'll see you again
And I can't wait
