Track Name: Lonely Hearts
Did somebody stray from you, take from you all
Or borrow the best thing you’ve ever had
Did they tell you it never did very much harm
Should it sting you or follow you all of your days long

Did you lose your step, catch the branch on the way down
Or give it very much thought to why I’ve been sticking around
Maybe it’s true I bled through and trough
Still I haven’t figured out just what I’m gonna do

It’s those lonely hearts that don’t find their way
It’s those violet rays beaming down
It’s those blue wind days when the calm is on the water
It’s that memories fade if you don’t care to mind

It’s those lonely hearts that don’t find their way
It’s those violet rays beaming down
It’s those blue wind days when the calm is on the water
It’s that memories fade if you don’t care to mind

I hardly hear, the words that resemble
Your name and I still tremble
The last shot, the final warning
As I slip away and say goodbye

It’s those lonely hearts that don’t find their way
It’s those violet rays beaming down
It’s those blue wind days when the calm is on the water
It’s that memories fade if you don’t care to mind
It’s that memories fade if you don’t care to bother
Track Name: My Only Home
I wanna thank ya
Thank your Ma and your Pa for making ya
Thank the whole wide world for shaping ya
Into the man that you've become.

And you move me
You write words and they flow right through me
You're everything I ever wanted to be
Baby you're the only one.

Lying in bed, eyes as wide as my head
I got you to help me close them.
A sleepless night of stress, a day with no rest,
At least I got ya when my eyes are open.

And life rolls 'round like a mystery,
I love recollecting all our history,
I love thinking back to our days at sea,
Oh baby we had no idea.

Taxi cabs and mountain hikes
Riding 'round different cities on our bikes
At the end of every day you're my only home.

I wanna thank ya
Thank your Ma and your Pa for making ya
Thank the whole wide world for shaping ya
Into the man that you've become.
Track Name: A Little Bit of Coffee
A little bit of coffee when I get out of bed
Makes me feel normal goes straight to my head
Then I start feeling lonely missing you my dear
Thank God for my coffee, my whiskey and beer

To start feeling better I pinch a little chew
Light up a smoke dear and daydream about you
I oft wonder when you might be back
Hopefully soon dear before I pick up crack

My sweet Mary Wannee, ice-cold cocaine
My vices are many, vodka on my brain
I miss you so dear won’t you please return
You’d think I’d know by now but I never learn

A little bit of coffee when I get out of bed
Makes me feel normal goes straight to my head
Then I start feeling lonely missing you my dear
Thank God for my coffee, my whiskey and beer
Track Name: Daylight til Dawn
I go rocking I go rolling
Shake it up all over town
I go reeling somebody’s dealing
Lets turn it upside down
Whoa from Daylight till dawn

My toes are tapping
My hands are tapping
As the band keeps humming along
She was smoking I ain’t joking
We got it all going on
Whoa from Daylight till dawn

Solo

It’s nice to meet ya
You’re not a teaser
You roll the dice like ‘em all

But I got to go babe
Lady luck is out in the hall
Whoa from daylight till dawn

Woke up this morning
Saw the daylight
I pulled the shades down tight
I’m a feeling hungry a little thirsty
Mamma won’t you treat me right
Whoa from daylight
Track Name: Hotel Room
Won't you see me off real soon
Going downtown where the old bar stands
And the Old Saloon

Walk my lady down hand in hand
Misty eyed morning in the bluegrass highlands
And telling of all the tales

Don't worry about me babe
Got two rents in the hotel room
The lights go down, fire turned up
Turned up
Turned on
I've been wrong

All my wishes that would come true
Fire that diamond in the sky
And hope it touch the moon

'member when we used to talk the time
I was oft afraid to let
you know what's on my mind

Don't worry about me babe
Got two rents and a hotel room
Where the lights go down
fired turned up
turn on
turn on
turn off

Don't worry about me babe
Got two nights in a hotel room
where the lights go down
fired turned up
Fires gone out
It burns out
And goes on and on
Track Name: Reno
Here we go, here we go
I'm heading home to Reno
Far from my baby's arms.

Dust is clouding my windows
And I know it's time for me so,
Far from my baby's arms.

Oh I know it, all the same,
You got caught up in a poker game.
If love's my loss, then what's my gain,
Anyway?

Here we go, here we go
I'm heading home to Reno
Far from my baby's arms.

Family feeling like paint chipping down.
Rusty buckets giving rain a sound
Like a clock ticking in my yard.

Oh I know it, all to well,
I will be just another story you tell.
You were my home, and now your my hell.
What's left to say?

Here we go, here we go
I'm heading home to Reno
Far from my baby's arms.
Track Name: Time in the Cell
Picking up where you left off
I went back to pay him off, hey, hey, hey, hey, he gotch yer pay
There’s no telling what they’ll do
Where to go, or to who, Hey Hey

Well you’ll have some time in that cell to think about it
You shouldn’t have done it long ago
But the question is whatcha gonna do about it
Cause your on your own, your on your own, your on your own

I’m back on what you said, sounds good to me
Looks like the sound of the picture’s got to breathe, got to breathe, got to breathe

Well he didn’t see it coming, no he had no guess. Served that bullet right to his chest,
now he’s dead, now he’s dead, now he’s dead

Well you’ll have some time in that cell to think about it
You shouldn’t have done it long ago
But the question is whatcha gonna do about it
Cause your on your own, your on your own, your on your own
Cause your on your own, your on your own, your on your own
Track Name: Rain
There’s a killer on the horizon
I can see it in their eyes
In the end it’s useless running
You got no place to hide

Chorus
The rain fell down on me all over me
The rain fell down on me

There’s emptiness in knowing
That you never get inside
You left with your wondering
No make no difference why
Track Name: The Great Divide
Long road, coming home, in my late night company

It's the kinda love you know, you know
Drifting tumbleweed, desert rain and it always leaves
Always leaves in the end

It's time to get back
It's time to return
It's time to let go

Time to come down from the Great Divide
Walking through the lines of the city

Behind no one knows and they see nothing
Forget like the call of the angels
Lonely and hope it passes me by

It's time to get back
It's time to return
It's time to let go
Time to come down from the Great Divide

And I walk to the streets and follow nothing in the road to meet
Stepping on the curb and I trust you what I mean
Come on back baby give it another shot

Don't let me down
Don't let me down
Don't let me down
Track Name: Wash it all Away
Something isn’t right with the night tonight

Its all a little vague and I am feeling uptight
But the rain will come someday from far away
and wash it all away

Tonight my minds not right feeling uptight
Worried of what will come of me and everyone I love and fate and love death and life

But things will be alright I can see its in our site you know, you know
So why don’t we fly far away from here now

The endlessness of space and time
And the vast visions on our mind
bring us to where we belong
As if we knew it all along

And the rain will come someday from far away
and wash it all away
