Track Name: White Dress
She to me
Was the skyline of Manhattan
With a lost and lonely stride, her thoughts are gone from her eyes
In a long white dress, and hair
That curls past her shoulders
And soft skin, I'd wish to touch, oh
I miss that so much

For she's the heartache that I endure
But all I hear is her voice
And every moments too soon

And she to me
Was everything that the City was
Everything I'd hoped it could be
And all I'd wanted to see
Now a Kentucky Moon, lights up
The fields of my childhood
Where once I was strong
Where once I belonged
But I stayed there too long

She's the heartache that I endure
But all I hear is her voice

In a long white dress, and hair
That curls past her shoulders
And soft skin, I wish to touch
I miss that so much

For she's the heartache that I endure
But all I hear is her voice
Track Name: Cheap Vodka Rain
Oh, my baby with her broken hands
Her pretty face, and her body warm
Holdin' a glass of cheap vodka and she's laughing and she just can't stop
It's been a long time since I felt so good
Thought I deserved it, or I thought I could
Watchin' the snow cover the rooftops while we're smokin' cigarettes till dawn

And I got you to thank for gettin' me to sleep at night
Holdin you, you're so precious, I just hope that I can get it right
I always knew from when I met you we were meant for something more
And you know I love you, so much

So meet me at the bar for a drink or two
I been thinkin of some things that I think we could do
And I'd just love to see those dimples again
From a smile I gave ya

And I got you to thank for gettin' me to sleep at night
Holdin you, you're so precious, I just hope that I can get it right
I always knew from when I met you we were meant for something more
And you know I love you, so much
Track Name: Really Gotta Go
I heard you talk, and I was trembling
Well, all the time you were here
Each word we speak could be the last
So I'm hanging on to every one

Most late nights I sit up thinking
Think myself into the ground
Just to found out I'm crazy
Then I think it through till the feelings all gone

And if you really gotta go, I understand

Well, I can't give you the sunshine
You seem to get, when I'm not around
It's not something I was hoping for
But I can't deny you're better off without it

And if you really gotta go, I understand

Clouds they settle on the sunrise
They're the same ones that we used to watch
And I apologize for my needing you
It's just something that I can't figure out
Figure out

And if you really gotta go, I understand.
Track Name: Summer 5
Darling, this summer
Your long legs and your smile
And a feeling so restless
I can't sleep through the night

Wish I knew how to love ya
Wish I knew what you need
Wish I knew if what you needed
Was something here in me

How I miss the mornings
Those puffy eyes so tired
Us laughing, remembering what we did last night
Wish I knew how to love you
Wish I didn't do it wrong
Wish you knew how much it killed me
When I knew you were gone

If I took it for granted, I regret every sound
That came from those lips
The same ones I kissed
That somehow I took wrong, and it ended like this
You know that I love you
And I always did

I've never seen a face so sad
Never seen a heart so warm
And I'd give anything for to ease your pain

If you give me a chance I'll try
If you give me a chance, I'll try
Track Name: With Your Costume On
How can I say I'm sorry?
The words won't work, I say em' wrong
And how can you know what I'm sayin'?
When it's only me, that thinks like this
Oh, I wish I was back there where I met you then
Before it all went wrong

Well, I could see that I had lost you then
In your painted eyes, in the morning light
I watch the window and wait for you to disappear
And then I lie awake

It's things like this, that you don't see
Anyways, I was a fool
Just to let you go
And I hope you know

I think I finally understand
But even when I do, I still think of you
I hear the songs that used to bring my sorrow down
And they're just not the same

It's things like this, that you don't see
Anyways, I was a fool
Just to let you go
And I hope you know

How can I say I'm sorry?
The words won't work, I say em' wrong
I see you standin' on the corner with your costume on
And you just walk away
Track Name: As Long
I can still feel the warmth of your shoulders
Around my neck
I can still feel your hand in mine
When I think of you, darlin'

When the morning came and we
Were sitting there, talkin
Well, I was too weak to do the right thing
Like I always am

And I know I'm selfish
To cry and feel this way
But, honey, I'm gonna love you as long
As you let me stay

Well, I don't know what's fair to who
Or who needs consoling
If only I knew you were feelin
So blue, all this time

And it kills me to think that the best thing
That I, could give you
Is some time on your own, or pretend
I care no more

I keep feeling like
The answer is somewhere in a song
But, honey, I'm gonna love you as long
As you let me hold on

I should say, "goodbye" and go
To keep me from talking
I should learn from my mistakes
And try to be strong

But it hurts me so much I can't stand myself most of the day
But, honey, I'm gonna love you as long as you let me stay

And when Sun goes down
The end of our day
Honey, I'm gonna love you the same as I do today

Honey, I'm gonna love you the same as I do today
Track Name: Bruises
How am I to know you still love me?
When lately this one house feels more like two
We used to share it like we shared all those first years
Now you hide your heart inside your room

Do you wonder where I am in the morning?
In the nighttime does your bed feel cold?
This basement's like this dream I've been having
All empty and for somebody else

Well, I feel just like I'm coming on 30
And I'm stuck in here inside of your World
But I ain't like you I need someone to tell me they care

And you're lyin' when I ask of your bruises
And you're lookin' away from my eyes
Is there really nothing left there inside you
You don't need me and I don't know why

So this is why I'm leavin' you, darlin'
While you were drinking by yourself in the quiet
Would it have killed you just to come down and kiss me
While I was crying over you last night
Track Name: Broken Kinda Way
I remember when she said
There's nothing here worth fighting for
One mistake just lead to more
In a broken kind of way

But I don't agree
To have her here so close to me
To feel it every time she breathes
And know that I couldn't hold her

I miss someone I can't face
Will you be here?
Oh, I always thought you would

I can't forget
Those blue eyes both drippin' wet
And all the makeup running down her neck
And all the things I should have told her
Track Name: Grey Skies
Voice like an old southern rain
Talks quiet then gets replaced
While my minds always driftin' away
To a City that's far from here and now

You're to far for me, every grey sky
Surrounds you when you're walkin'
Even when they're blue
But you're so convinced that they're after you
You can't do that to me

Now you just ramble a lot
Say your words real slow, then stop
But don't think of me when you're lonely and I'm the
Last number that you got

You're to far for me, every grey sky
Surrounds you when you're walkin'
Even when they're blue
But you're so convinced that they're after you
You can't do that to me

Well, I know where to find ya
And I know where you've been
And you're not worth the trouble
You get in

You're to far for me, every grey sky
Surrounds you when you're walkin'
Even when they're blue
But you're so convinced that they're after you
You can't do that to me
Track Name: Cold When We Met
Woke up this morning
Closed my windows and my doors
Well, it was cold when we met
It's turning cold again

And it makes me miss you
I shouldn't think about it anymore

I think about an afternoon
Once before I flew home
I think about you late at night
Right outside my front door

And it makes me miss you
I shouldn't think about it anymore
Track Name: Be Right Here
The light are on down low
And all I hear is the sound
Of your song it always plays and it surrounds me
So, I listen for awhile
And all I want to do
Is take away the sadness you were born with

And I'll be right here
You're not alone

I watch you close the bar
And lock up all the doors
And make it home with you and all your laughter
And watch you hum along
Until it's time to sleep
And love you through every sunrise we're awake through

And I'll be right here
You're not alone

No, I didn't see you coming
You were more than I could see
And I don't know what I did to get your heart to finally find me

But I'll be right here
You're not alone
