Track Name: Ashland
I heard you say my name
I was looking the other way
Saw a tear there on your face
And I don't know what for

I was trying to convey
I was listening all the same
But you hit me in the gut
And now I know what for

We were driving out all night
We were heading up the 5
You were asking why
I just couldn't let it go

Pull over to the side
I just need to close my eyes
For a minute and I'll be fine
Oh I gotta let it go
I gotta let it go
I gotta let it go

Read the letter that you sent
But still I was on the fence
And I've been there ever since
Oh and I don't know what for

As we're turning round the bend
You check my blind spot and pretend
That we know whats up ahead
No I gotta let it go
I gotta let it go
I gotta let it go

I'd go anywhere the wind blows, I'd go anywhere at all
I'd go anywhere the wind blows, I'd go anywhere at all
Oh I gotta let it go
Track Name: Please
Was there some prize you wanted, some other clouds you need to trace?
It doesn't matter where you find it but you're gonna need to get a place
And when you've straightened every bend, does it mean I'm lost again?

Oh please, make some room for me
Oh please, make some room for me

I know there's pretty faces that look like mine, but they're not me
I only want to have you if I'm the one who makes you free
And when you've straightened every bend, does it mean I'm lost again?

Oh please, make some room for me
Oh please, make some room for me

We can write our names in the floor
We won't need to paint anymore

Oh please, make some room for me
Oh please, make some room for me
Oh please, make some room for me
Track Name: Plans
I lost of track
Of how many times I called you back
To say I meant it that
I got no one else like you

I'm gazing at
This same old sea of faded plaid
Until the night turns black
And then I turn to you

I should care
About the latest world affair
Instead I missed it there
Cuz I'm here with you

And I should find
A better way to spend my time
Than spinning grand designs
Every day with you

Let's talk another day
Let's sleep it all away
Let's fuck it up and say
We'll sleep it all away
We'll sleep it all away

We've been on
Your front porch for far too long
But we've been gone
Hardly any time at all

Listen here
Why don't we just disappear?
Tell our friends that we're
Gonna make it on our own

Let's talk another day
Let's sleep it all away
Let's fuck it up and say
We'll sleep it all away

Let's talk another day
Let's sleep it all away
Let's fuck it up and say
We'll sleep it all away
We'll sleep it all away
Track Name: The Mountaineer
Here on the ridge by the great divide
We squint from the sun and the sweat in our eyes
And I've got a song in the palm of my hand
With smooth little stones from the riverbed

And oh how the days grow long here
And oh how the rest of the world disappears
I'll keep my feet planted firm on the ground
Looking down like a mountaineer

The southern cross that sits in the sky
Tells you to pray when you're dreaming at night
And your name's in a bag that you hang on your shoulder
Til you lay it all down and leave it forever

And oh how the days grow long here
And oh how the rest of the world disappears
I'll keep my feet planted firm on the ground
Looking down like a mountaineer

We've given up being good
We only want a different point of view
We've given up being good
We only want a different point of view

We'll camp in the place where the highway won't find us
Then sway with the earth gently waltzing beneath us
Believe it or not, it's the closest we've come
To the beautiful places we wish we came from
