Track Name: Hover
She's dreaming of lions when she tries to rest
Circling wide and softly
Somebody new, with his head on her chest
He breathes to inscribe her body

He's a man who knows silence like water knows stone
Like midwinter snow knows the Rockies
He waits for the sweet things that float and come home
Red leaves, high tide, and her body

The roof peels away
And she's left uncovered
Then feet leave the ground
And she hovers, she hovers, hovers, hovers...

She's hard-pressed to tell you where she went astray
Got lost on the way to the party
But even a ghost can sometimes be brave
She'll sing from inside of her body

The roof peels away
And she's left uncovered
Then feet leave the ground
And she hovers, she hovers, hovers, hovers...
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: One Hundred Rooms
If I was a rusty nail
And I let the air out of your tires
You never took me anywhere
Just kept me spinning for a while

And if I had an evil plan
To make you want me and let you down
I wouldn't do the things I did
Got all wrapped up now I can't get out

If I had a bag of money
And a big old house with a hundred rooms
I wouldn't tell anybody
Spend my nights alone howlin' at the moon

I could walk a dotted line
I could say my prayers when I go to bed
But I don't want to waste my time
When I'll just wake up with the blues again
Track Name: Ashland
I heard you say my name
I was looking the other way
Saw a tear there on your face

I was trying to convey
I was listening all the same
But you hit me in the gut
But you hit me in the gut

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

Night time driving up the coastline
We'll keep going til' the sunrise
Night time driving up the coastline
We'll keep going til' the sun
Track Name: Church Key
Have you grown thirsty looking for the church key
Brother I will take you home
Would you ever mind if we could never find it
Turning over every stone that we can see
Oh where could it be

Have you gone farther looking in the dark
For a fire that will keep you warm
Wander off the trail, lose track of all the details
Till we make it door your door, where we can sleep
Forever so it seems

Brother don't you wait for me
Mother don't you wait for me
Open up the gates for me
And I will sleep until the morning calls me

Did you take the harvest over to the market
Can I join you on the road
Oh the load is barely just enough to carry
I don't mind the weight, I don't
It's all that I need to bring you back to me

Oh I have been workin and my legs are burnin
Brother won't you take me home
When we all arrive I cannot describe
The feeling that is in my bones, warm as can be
It's everything to me

Brother don't you wait for me
Mother don't you wait for me
Open up the gates for me
And I will sleep until the morning calls me
Track Name: Home To Me
I can see you somewhere up the road
There's a weight you carry you're trying to let go
And you know that if I could I would take it all away from you

How dare you love me like you've never known fear
When you've got more troubles than minutes in the year
And a voice like your father's tells you nothing good's for free
Well that may be, but you're walking home to me

Must have seen your picture down there in the well
Black birds were flying, watching as you fell
Years ago I would have said that you'd never get back up again

I can see you somewhere up the road
There's a weight you carry you're trying to let go
And you know that if I could I would take it all away from you

How dare you love me like you've never known fear
When you've got more troubles than minutes in the year
And a voice like your father's tells you nothing good's for free
Well that may be, but you're walking home to me

I sleep to dream the trail beneath your feet
That brings you back to me
And step by step, wherever you might be
You're walking home to me
You're walking home to me

On the day you left me you promised you'd come back
I don't know who taught you how to live like that
All the fences in your way have to crumble in the wind one day

I can see you somewhere up the road
There's a weight you carry you're trying to let go
And you know that if I could I would take it all away from you

How dare you love me like you've never known fear
When you've got more troubles than minutes in the year
And a voice like your father's tells you nothing good's for free
Well that may be, but you're walking home
That may be, but you're walking home to me
Track Name: Silhouette
Just your lovely silhouette
I couldn't tell ya
How long you've been on my mind
It could be a while

I thought I heard you laugh when I said:
Are we moving on?
I guess, I guess, I guess.
The patience I have left for looking at my past
Is enough.

All this time and still I need
Another minute
I've been trying to retrieve
A blurry moment

I thought I saw you blush when I asked:
Is this good enough?
I guess, I guess, I guess.
The sureness that I lack is slowing coming back
It's enough.

All of the names sketched in my head
Are blurring away to the outer edge
And all of these old rags that I kept
Are coming with me just like I said
And your lovely silhouette

Just your lovely silhouette
I couldn't tell ya
How long you've been on my mind
It could be a while

I thought I heard you laugh when I said:
Are we moving up?
I guess, I guess, I guess
Until I find my path the circle that I have
Is enough.
