Track Name: Message On Your Door
I never thought I could be the man,
Who best could serve your needs.
To take you from this tattered town,
With its pale and dusty dreams.

I left that message on your door,
You thought it was a joke.
‘Cause you’ve met men like me before,
And you’ve seen promises go up in smoke.

I’m holding out,
I can’t say for sure you’ll come around.
I’m holding out,
But I don’t wanna be the one without you now,
I never wanna be the one without you.

I stumbled through the desert sun,
I was just trying to strike you from my mind.
I saw your face on everyone,
In every two-bit tavern down the line.

I’m holding out,
I can’t say for sure you’ll come around.
I’m holding out,
But I don’t wanna be the one without you now,
I never wanna be the one without you.
Track Name: Tethered By A Ring
Well I came here to stay,
But you said “just one more day.”
Well I tried so hard to please.
And if it takes time,
I’ll make it plain, I’m yours.
You can’t evade, I’ll
Make it plaing, I’m yours.

Well we lived beyond our means,
Lived through times when times were lean.
As the greens did fade to grays,
Well I thought it was a day.
I’ve only been true,
I want to know you’re mine.
How do people find love,
When this city binds us so?

If you peel back every word,
Make a deal with death and her,
It’s not half the weight it seems,
To be tethered by a ring.
I’ve only been true,
I want to know you’re mine.
How do people find love,
When this city binds us so?
And you say it’s up to me.
Track Name: The Pot And The Kettle
Well I'm so lost
So lost
And I'm not sure if I can return
Think that I'm coming out...coming out
I miss you so much
So much
If I could find you honey I'd take you home
I think we're coming out...coming out

We thought about the risk then we let it go
We thought about the risk then we let it go
Darling we were fools
Oh God see us through

I think we had too much
Too much
This ain't supposed to happen
I'm lying on the floor.
Praying that I'm coming out....coming out

We thought about the risk then we let it go
We thought about the risk then we let it go
Well they make it for the money,
And it’s only for a while.
They make it for the ready,
And we’re going out in style.
Darling we were fools
Oh God see us through
Track Name: My Town
Casey boy’s leaving town
Never gonna look back
No one knows what he’s going for
The family farm is doing fine

And I don’t mind picking for a dime I’m living getting by.

Nothing ever seems to change
People places all the same
John’s still work down there at the bar every night
Even though his pa still runs this town

And I don’t mind picking for a dime I’m living
Getting by on nothing but it’s time for something
Where can I feel settled, working wood and metal till I die?
This is my town

Damn how I love this place
Never am gonna leave
Damn how I love this place
Never am gonna leave

And I don’t mind picking for a dime I’m living
Getting by on nothing but it’s time for something
Where can I feel settled, working wood and metal till I die?
This is my town
Track Name: I Hear You Telling Me Something
I hear you telling me something
I hear you telling me something
Please don’t go away Lord
Please don’t go away Lord

You say I’ve got to quit my lying cheating stealing ways
You say I’ve got to quit my gambling and drinking today
You say I’ve got to quit my lying cheating stealing ways
Please don’t go away Lord

Oh Lord I wanna be ready
Oh Lord I wanna be ready
Please I gotta reach Heaven
Please I gotta reach Heaven
Track Name: Take My Brothers
Take my brothers, scattered in the world,
I never get to see them.
And when I do it’s fleeting.
I’m already old enough to know,
The things that really matter.
At least they matter to me.

But I need reminders,
The white flag of settling,
Is not the same as settling down.

Everybody’s battling a war,
Between excess and fulfillment,
Living right or living brilliantly.
I just pray for time enough to breathe,
And bring my friends together,
To make the good times better.

But I need reminders,
The white flag of settling,
Is not the same as settling down.

Just allow me thirty seconds, please,
To organize my thinking,
Don’t want to regret anything.
Baby we’ve decisions on our hands,
We know it won’t be easy.
But then again, who’s counting, dear.

I need reminders,
The white flag of settling,
Is not the same as settling down.
Track Name: King And Queen
Not every story known has a happy ending
This one’s the tale of the way that things once had been
So lean in close and hear

The queen stood up and then the king and told how things would be
This plan is what he had in mind
As soon as he knew he was next in line
All that the king could talk about was “Give me an heir my wife”
The jester gave one final show
The queen was so upset to see him go
But as she announced dissatisfaction all the king did was smile

I won’t give up the crown protects me
I won’t give up the crown protects me
I won’t give up the crown protects me

The duke arrived with just one plea for that jaded tyrant king
He says “My people have not even food
They toil all their days for me and you.”
With a wink and a smile the king declared “They should have been born the duke.”

But heaven knows enough to burn me
God I hope that they don’t turn on me.

The masquerade began at dusk
That’s when the king revealed his latest lust
She was a sight for sore eyes and that’s just what her husband thought.

I won’t give up the crown protects me
I won’t give up the crown protects me
I won’t give up, no I won’t
Give up, no I won’t
Give up, no I won’t
Give up, no I won’t give up.
