Spin the globe; wherever it stops, I’m going Hit the map with the dart in your hand Gonna blow this train whistle till I find out who I am And the old man says, “Son you’ve got to live to learn, Yeah we’ve all got fire, but we all don’t let it burn.” Let it burn Spin the globe; wherever it stops, I’m going Hit the map with the dart in your hand Gonna blow this train whistle till I find out who I am “What you know about crying? What you know about dying, boy? Got to live with that sadness before you can let it go.” Let it go Spin the globe; wherever it stops, I’m going Hit the map with the dart in your hand Gonna blow this train whistle till I find out who I am

Work It Out 03:52
Work it out, work it out darling Work it out, work it out darling What did I expect to find? I went to sleep alone I reached for you in the middle of the night I reached for your soul In your place I find nothing Guess I made my own bed Work it out, work it out darling Work it out, work it out darling When you’re asking me to love you Baby, can’t you see I can’t give words to you You’ve got to tell me what you need All the things I should have said, but nothing... Guess I made my own bed Work it out, work it out darling Work it out, work it out darling I don’t know why We never try Baby, I know we can Work it out, work it out darling Work it out, work it out darling

Meant To Be 04:12
I know what I do there, I know who I am I know how to get back to where it all began I know the ice is melting and the sound that it makes Well the river runs much deeper every day Tires tearing up the driveway, a plow banking up the roads The darkest days behind us, the steady falling snow Out here a breeze is blowing, a sun set out to sea If this is meant to be a home to me Why do my fingers ache for the frost? Nothing ever seems to go perfectly And the river runs much deeper every day If this is meant to be a home to me Why do my fingers ache for the frost? Nothing ever seems to go perfectly And the river runs much deeper every day

Heaven Knows 03:53
Heaven knows I could have been driving all night Heaven knows I should have done so Every mile makes me a little darker inside Every road makes me a stranger at your door Skeleton keys like memories rattling in my heart Never been alone like a lonely night we spent apart So please unlock your door, try another memory Lanterns on your porch burn right in front of me Your driveway rolls right by and I head for the state line Heaven knows I could have been drinking all night We both know sometimes I do so Every drop makes me a little darker inside Every drink makes me a stranger no one knows Skeleton keys like memories rattling in my heart Never been alone like a lonely night we spent apart So please unlock your door, try another memory Lanterns on your porch burn right in front of me Your driveway rolls right by and I head for the state line Your driveway rolls right by and I head for the state line

Night Song 07:08
Until the end of time you will be alive in me We don’t have to try, we don’t have to change a thing It’s a simple truth: I see into you and you see me We are travelers only passing through And then suddenly you’re pulled away from everything Shapeless and weightless and free So where do you go when you go home, my darling? And when you go I will follow, my love

Hey there Sun, when you gonna shine? I’ve got plans upon plans upon plans waiting in my mind Hey there Sun, when you gonna call my name? Part these clouds when you can, they’re getting in my way Hey there Moon, you pull me like the tides I can run, I can struggle all I like but you won’t let me hide Hey there Moon, when you gonna let me rest? I’ve got dreams I’ve got to get to, it’s where I’m at my best Hey there Wind, I’m stuck here on the ground In all your time and travel ‘round the world, any secrets that you found? Hey there Wind, I feel you in my hair In the end I want to be like you, say I’ve been everywhere Hey there Sun, when you gonna shine? I’ve got plans upon plans upon plans waiting in my mind

Figueroa 02:54
In the morning, I’ll watch the day break On Figueroa Mountain, hills all around Beside you, I’ll make a promise After that imagination fails me, what should I expect? When I first knew you we were like children Beacon Hill, a foot of snow, I held you One day you had to go When I was all alone I found the light to guide me home It wasn’t something I could see until you showed me We went a-searching, we crossed this country To find a place to call our own we left behind all we had known A moth to flame, a bird flies south, these things don’t change We found out all we need to know: you want it close, you let it go So in the morning, we’ll watch the day break On Figueroa Mountain, hills all around If you want it close, you let it go If you want her close, you let her go

We’re running out of candles; we’re all out of cake But don’t you dare call the party off or we’ll forget your name Promise that we’ll live forever Promise that you’ll cover the rent The People have spoken, but they’re not making sense The whole world is thirsty; let’s sing ‘em a song While we bathe with the beauties and water our lawns We’re gonna tell you the answer But we’re not gonna tell you when The People have spoken, but they’re not making sense Oh but God only knows it’s such a slippery slope It’s a slippery slope God only knows the answer But the Devil’s gonna get you yet The People have spoken, but they’re not making sense

I thought I’d wake up endlessly, soak the sheets with restless sleep Figured that’s the way it ought to be But the sheets are dry and comforting, I sleep as sound as anything Yeah, I know, it surprised even me Well there’s nobody to talk to, so what? And no one in this town could give a fuck I don’t know just when it hit me, but the writing’s on the wall Nothing hurts like nothing hurts at all Why don’t I drink this bottle dry, start the day by getting high Figured that’s the way it ought to be Well I haven’t drank an excess drop, I walk right by the smoke shop I’m dry as a bone, dry as can be Well there’s nobody to talk to, so what? And no one in this town could give a fuck I don’t know just when it hit me, but the writing’s on the wall Nothing hurts like nothing hurts at all

Live Now 03:28
Miles roll out in the shadow of a mountain There’s a pen in my fountain, tell me I’m saved Feeling older now like a tear in an ocean Nobody knows when we’re out of days I’m gonna live now, I’m gonna live now I’m gonna live now now now now now The clock comes down like a hammer on a gavel I’ve got a fistful of regrets to ease my pain Soon enough I’ll check out of every highway motel The wheels humming like the static on my radio dial I’m gonna live now, I’m gonna live now I’m gonna live now now now now now The winter creeping in, I can feel it sinking in my soul again I hope I make the bloom The trees tapping on the eaves, something bitter in the breeze A cold snap reminds me spring will find me I’m gonna live now, I’m gonna live now I’m gonna live now now now now now Miles roll out in the shadow of a mountain There’s a pen in my fountain, tell me I’m saved

Soul 04:30
Momma sent Jimmy down to the store Gave the little man ten dollar more She said, “Jimmy, you’ve been a good boy And you’ve got that soul now spread some joy.” Jimmy knew Susie from the second grade Her papa worked hard putting food on the plate Something about Susie and her baby blues Made little Jimmy want to share his loot Yeah he’s got that soul and now he’s gonna let it go Susie took that dough got herself a treat Saw Old Man Buddy walking down the street All that food too much for her She said to Buddy, “Would you like some sir?” “Hey little girl, now if you don’t mind Tell an old man how you got so kind.” She told him ‘bout Jimmy and his heart so strong The boy’s got soul and he passed it on He’s got that soul, now he’s gonna let it go If you got that soul, now you gotta let it go Momma gave Jimmy, Jimmy gave Sue Sue gave Buddy something new to do If you wanna see how the story goes That suggests you got some soul, now you’re gonna let it go If you got that soul, yeah you gotta let it go Soul starts moving train to train Up them mountains, down them plains Soul starts changing hand to hand That’s how soul moved across this land If you got that soul, now you gotta let it go If you got that soul, you gotta let it go Momma gave Jimmy, Jimmy gave Sue Sue gave Buddy something new to do Since you’re gonna stick to the story’s end That suggests you got soul, my friend
