Albion 04:45
Albion 40 days to Albion And I suppose Some things never change Buy why Some things never change All we had and all we lost I suppose Some things must be replaced But why Must some things be replaced Oh, what we gave up for grace vanished in the grey we turned our heads to pray and lost you once again 40 days and I'll be home I suppose, never to return But why I never will return All we had and all we lost I suppose Some thing just fade away But why Some things fade away Oh, what we gave up for grace Vanished in the grey We turned our heads to pray And lost you once again

Penny in a Diamond Mine Do you have a way to slow down lord Do you have a way to slow down lord I'm a sinner but I don't know why lord A sinner but I don't know why, don't know why They woke me in the morning with my britches on Got a love of the highway, fear of the dawn And I'm the only one who takes my time lord The only one who takes my time, takes my time When the bridges broke Our bodies fell into the tide When the water froze Eyes were staring at the sky Thought I left here for a penny in a diamond mine You get just one of those before you die Do you have a way to slow down lord Do you have a way to slow down lord I ain't a beggar but I don't mind trying lord Ain' a beggar but I don't mind trying, don't mind trying I've been sleeping like a liar with a fool for a bed Running from a lover who once though I was dead And I'm the only one who's seen her cry lord The only one who's seen her cry, seen her cry When the bridges broke Our bodies fell into the tide When the water froze Eyes were staring at the sky Thought I left here for a penny in a diamond mine You get just one of those before you die

Robin & The Willow This one said I gotta go A little bit of loving has taken it's toll In the morning, in the morning The rain came down and we ran like hell The rain came down and we rang that bell In the morning, oh my God In the morning, oh my God In the morning And if a robin makes the willow shake We'll all fall down, we'll all fall down again Well a cannonball hit my wall A little bit harder than it did before And the wall caved in, the wall caved in Then the rain came down and we ran like hell The rain came down and we rang that bell In the morning, oh my God In the morning, oh my God In the morning And if a robin makes the willow shake We'll all fall down, we'll all fall down again I can take my baby back to the graveyard line Where I turned 21, no I don't mind dying You can pass that bottle or hold my hand Pass that bottle or hold my hand I can take my baby back to the graveyard line Where I turned 21, no I don't mind dying again This one said I gotta go A little bit of loving has taken it's toll In the morning, in the morning The rain came down and we ran like hell The rain came down and we rang that bell In the morning, oh my God In the morning, oh my God In the morning And if a robin makes the willow shake We'll all fall down, we'll all fall down again

Raise A Glass Raise a glass Call me home I'll be alright, I'll be alright I'll be the only one Ready for the fall Covering the head of curls Ready for the fall To wear you like a string of pearls Calloused hands Can raise me up But just for a while, just for a while Until I'm the only one Left holding up the wall Covering this head of curls Holding up the wall To wear you like a string of pearls Raised to stand On broken bones But just for a while, just for a while 'Til I'm the only one Left creeping down the hall Covering this head of curls Sneaking down the hall To wear you like a string of pearls Left here alone Away from the whole wide world And we shuffled along Along with the plans we had To never grow tired Keep singing the same sad song About leaving along Along with the plans we had To never grow tired...

Bedroom Doors She dreamed in red for white Behind the bedroom door Next to mine, next to mine And she'd climb the stairs before I'd rise And try to fly, to fly I never raised my voice Above a whisper to say You were right, you were right The hand that slipped into your pocket It was mine, it was mine All of the times I tried Just to save those things That were mine, that were mine But I stay crooked while you follow In the night, in the night I'm yours, I'm yours But I didn't mean to leave you with the devil in the dirt I turned, I turned And saw you lying sweetly with the love that you deserved And I'm sure, I'm sure You can pay your way to heaven with the money that you earned But you roll, don't roll I've been saving all my pity for the Sunday night low And I know, I know I can pay my way to heaven with the money that I stole

Waitress 04:37
Waitress I took the young hand of a wide eyed waitress Down into the parlor where her boots came off She said I have never been alone And why would you stand there with warm hands waiving When I'm just trying to tell you about this dream that I had You know I have never been alone But you could take me for a while She put a hand upon my heart and with one eye open Said I just want to see you break the chains that you made You know I have never been alone So I took the young hand of a wide eyed waitress Down into the parlor where her boots came off She said I have never been alone
7.
Curses For The Queen We dance to the curious sound of our own songs And we broke that china doll parade It wasn't right: But we all held curses for the queen I laughed at a hand sticking out from the rose bed Where we lay like captives on the day And it wasn't right: But we all held curses for the queen Oh river don't run me dry I've got to hide cold water in my veins I'll stand with my feet on the streets of this old town Where we stayed to paint our lives in grey And it wasn't right" But we all held curses for the queen Oh river don't run me dry I've got to hide cold water in my veins

The Locket 04:11
The Locket If I could have you just follow me 'round And cover that tracks that I leave on the ground I'd be the quiet one, you'd be my queen Or I could just let you lie sleeping with me You took an extra spray of Sunday's perfume You walked by me fast, it lingered where you stood You where the younger one, barely 19 And I was the one with the ghost next to me I took down the only book you left on my shelf The pages where cut and inside it held A tattered old picture of the loneliest man And the locket you wore, he held in his hand And I know now that my only friend Is the locket you left on my bed

Blame It On The Violets One beneath the trees wrapped in violets Called me the king of the arrogant Blame it on the violets Lover would you please play your violin I've been breathing your rosin in Blame it on the violets Oh your eyes Oh your eyes just look for gold Oh your eyes
