Track Name: GRAVITATING
THE LEAVES ARE FALLING
DOWN ON THE GROUND
THEN THE SNOW IS COMING
EVERYTHING GOES ROUND AND ROUND

AND I
AM FALLING TOO
WITHOUT CONTROL AND AIM
I'M CRASHING INTO YOU


”AND I'M GRAVITATING
SHOOTING LIKE AN ARROW THROUGH THE AIR
I'M NOT HESITATING
COURSE YOU WILL BE WAITING FOR ME THERE”

LIKE YOU AND ME
NATURE HAS ITS COURSE
I'M LOVING YOU
WITH BRUTE FORCE

AND I
I KNOW THE DEAL
I'M DRAWN INTO YOU
YOU MAKE MY HEART HEAL
Track Name: WOMEN, BOOZE AND NETHER REGIONS
SOMEONE ASKED ME THE OTHER DAY
I WONDER 'BOUT THOSE SONGS YOU PLAY
THEY'RE ALWAYS ABOUT SUCH NASTY THINGS
PEOPLE DRINKING AND GETTING BRUISED
WOMEN CHEATING AND BEING ABUSED
I SAID SOMETIMES LIFE
JUST CUTS YOUR WINGS

"IF YOU SEE THINGS GO WRONG,
YOU FEEL BETTER WITH A SONG
THAT TELLS YOU
YOU'RE NOT ALONE
IT'S A LIVING SHARED BY LEGIONS
WOMEN, BOOZE AND NETHER REGIONS
SOME LIKE IT, THEN AGAIN OTHERS DON'T
SOME LIKE IT OTHERS DON'T"

WE'RE ALL SCARED OF LONELINESS
SCARED TO DEAL WITH THE EMPTINESS
THAT LURKS INSIDE
EACH AND EVERYONE
WE DRINK, POP PILLS AND TRY TO GET HIGH
OR FREEZE OUR HEARTS TO LIVE A LIE
NO COMPASSION, NO EMOTION, NO FUN

CHORUS

SOLO

I LIKE STORIES 'BOUT GOOD TIMES TOO
NICE THINGS FOR ME AND YOU
LIKE KISSES AND LOVE
AS LONG AS THEY'RE REAL
EMPTY THINGS ARE EMPTY THAT'S IT
AND EMPTY SONGS AIN'T WORTH A SHIT
THEY ARE JUST LIES,
THEY DON'T MAKE US FEEL
Track Name: DOGS ON THE RUN
WE WERE FLOATING DOWN THE HIGHWAY
JODY AND ME
LISTENING TO THE RADIO
D.A.C. WAS SINGING HE'D BEEN EVERYWHERE
WITH NO PLACE LEFT TO GO
I TOLD HER I KNOW THAT FEELING GOOD
AND THAT LIFE WAS A LOADED GUN
SHE SMILED AND SAID WE WERE
LIKE DOGS ON THE RUN

TWO DOGS ON THE RUN
JUST DRIFTING ROUND WITH
THEIR BACKS TO THE SUN
BARKING LOUD
AND HOWLING AT THE MOON
EVERY NIGHT WHEN THE DAY WAS DONE
THAT'S THE LIFE THEY LIVE
DOGS ON THE RUN

IT WAS GETTING LATE SO WE STOPPED OUR CAR
AT TRUCK STOP 29
THE AIR WAS COOL
AND THE SKY WAS HIGH
WE WERE BOTH FEELING FINE
I TOOK OUT MY BANJO
AND I PLAYED ALL NIGHT
AND JODY LAUGHED AND SUNG ALONG
WE DRANK SOME MOONSHINE AND THE MOON SHINED
ON TWO DOGS ON THE RUN

BUT EVERY DREAM HAS TO FADE SOMETIME
AND IN THE MORNING SHE WAS GONE
SHE WROTE ON A SMALL NOTE
THAT THIS PART OF HER LIFE WAS DONE
I HOPE SHE'S HAPPY WHERE EVER SHE ROAMS
AND SHE WALKS WITHOUT A LEECH
COURSE IF U WANNA BE GOOD TO YOURSELF
YOU SHOULD LIVE LIKE YOU PREACH
Track Name: RUST &CHROME
I HEARD A CALL PUMPING THROUGH MY VEINS
A VOICE I'VE KNOWN, CALLING OUT MY NAME
I HEARD SOME ANGELS SING
AND NOW I'M WONDERING
IF THIS PIECE OF RUST AND CHROME
WILL EVER TAKE ME HOME
TAKE ME HOME

I PUT THE BOTTLE DOWN AND WALKED OUT THE DOOR
THE SMELL OF GASOLINE, MADE ME WANT SOME MORE
AND NOW I'M HEADING OUT THERE
IT COULD BE ANYWHERE
IF THIS...

NOW HOME IS JUST A WORD
THAT SOUNDS A DISTANT BELL
AND IT AIN'T TOO LOUD
AS FAR AS I CAN TELL
BUT IT ECHOES BACK TO ME
SO I THINK ITS TIME TO SEE
IF THIS...
Track Name: BLOODY MARY
I WALKED INTO A LOCAL BAR
THEY GOT DECENT BEER AND IT'S NOT TOO FAR
I SAW A PAIR OF TOMATO JUICE EYES
AND SMELLED A BREATH OF PEPPER AND SPICE

HER FACE LOOKED LIKE A CELERY STALK
SHE WAS SO DRUNK SHE COULD NOT EVEN WALK
SAT THERE WITH HER GLASS FULL OF PAIN
BLOODY MARY´S HEART IS BLEEDING AGAIN

"BLOODY MARY, BLOODY MARY
BLOODY MARY'S HEART IS BLEEDING AGAIN
NOW SHE'S TRYING TO SHUT DOWN HER BRAIN
BLOODY MARY'S HEART IS BLEEDING AGAIN
AND THERE'S NOT MUCH LEFT TO GAIN, BLOODY MARY..."

SHE WAS A BEAUTY QUEEN WHEN SHE WAS IN HER PRIME
NOW HER LAUGH IS BITTER LIKE LEMON AND LIME
THERE'S NO ONE LEFT TO BUY HER CHAMPAGNE
BLOODY MARY'S HEART IS BLEEDING AGAIN
Track Name: CRY WOLF
HEY HEY HAVE YOU HEARD
COME ON SPREAD THE WORD
A WOLF IS SEEN AND THE HUNT STARTS RIGHT NOW
EVERY MAN GET YOUR GUN
AND JOIN THE FUN
YOU CAN BET YOUR ASS
WE'RE GONNA BLAST THE BEAST SOMEHOW

THE HUNTING BUS GOT THERE
THE AEROPLANE IN THE AIR
FIRED ON THE WOLF BUT DIDN'T SUCCEED
IT FELT LIKE A DISGRACE
FOR THE HUMAN RACE
IF THE WOLF WOULD KEEP ON RUNNING FREE

"IF U WANNA GET THE WOLF
GET READY TO SHOOT
COMMON BE A MAN GET THE BOUNTY GET THE LOOT
BUT IF YOU'RE GONNA CRY WOLF
AND IF U GONNA MAKE A FUZZ
THEN U WONT B RIDING WITH US ON THE HUNTING BUS"

THE WHOLE WORLD HELD THEIR BREATH
WHEN THE HUNT LASTED FOR DAYS
all papers REPORTED
OF THE WOLFS WICKED WAYS
AND WHAT WAS THE DEAL
ON TOP OF THE PARIS WHEEL

THE HUNT CAME TO AN END
WHEN UP AROUND THE BEND
THE BUS HIT THE WOLF AND THE DRIVER GOT THE KILL
EVERYBODY COULD SEE
THAT THE NATION WAS FREE
FROM THE WOLF THAT GAVE US ALL SUCH A THRILL
Track Name: LET THE WIND TWIRL
LET THE WIND TWIRL
YOUR HAIR GENTLY
LET IT DRY YOUR LIPS AND WET YOUR EYES
LET THE SOFT CLOUDS
RAIN ON YOUR SKIN
AND LET THE BEES BUZZ HONEY IN YOUR EAR

THE DAYS ARE GETTING SHORTER
BUT THE SUN IS THERE FOR EVERYONE TO SEE
AND IT SHINES ITS LIGHT ON YOU AND ME
AND IT SINGS A SONG
ALL DAY LONG
IT SINGS A SONG

NOW MOVE ON CLOSER
AND LEAN YOUR HEAD
AGAINST ME SO THAT I CAN FEEL YOUR BODY CLOSE
TOUCH THE SOFT GRASS
WITH YOUR CURLING TOES
AND BREATH THE SAME AIR WITH ME FOR A WHILE

IN THE SKY THE STARS THEY TWINKLE
WHEN THEY SHOOT ACROSS THE MILKY WAY
AND THEY SMILE AND LAUGH AND JOY WHEN THE PLAY

AND THEY SING A SONG
ALL NIGHT LONG
AND THEY SING A SONG
Track Name: SMOKE FROM THE CHIMNEY
THE FIRE IS BURNING SLOW
WHERE THE SMOKE GOES, I DON'T KNOW
'GUESS IT JUST FLIES AROUND
TILL IT FALLS BACK ON THE GROUND

I WAS A MAN LIKE ANYONE ELSE
HAD A WIFE AND A GUN ON THE SHELF
I PULLED THE TRIGGER AND SHE WAS NO MORE
HER BLOOD WAS SPREADING ON THE FLOOR

I LOOKED AT HER FACE
AND HELD HER HAND
SO PALE SO COLD
AND WHISPERED IN HER EAR
THAT NOW
YOU WILL NEVER LEAVE ME

I BUILT A WALL STRONG AND THICK
ALL AROUND HER BRICK BY BRICK
A FIREPLACE TO WARM MY BONES
HER LOVE IS GLOVING FROM THE STONES


I STARE AT THE FLAMES
AND SEE HER FACE
AND HEAR HER TALK TO ME
AND HAND IN HAND
WE GO UP TO THE SKY
WITH THE SMOKE
THE SMOKE FROM THE CHIMNEY
Track Name: DREAMS I NEVER...
THE SHY LIGHT OF MORNING
IS CARESSING HER SKIN
SHINING THROUGH THE CURTAINS
MAKING THE WHITE DUST SPIN

SHE'S SLEEPING TIGHT
AND I GENTLY TOUCH HER HAIR
DREAMING DREAMS
I NEVER THOUGHT WE'D SHARE

SHE WAKES UP AND SEES ME
AND THEN SHE CLOSES HER EYES
SHE GIVES ME A WARM SMILE
A GLIMPSE OF PARADISE
AND HER TOUCH
SHAKES ME SOMEWHERE IN THERE
MAKES ME SEE
DREAMS I NEVER THOUGHT WE'D SHARE

SHE FALLS BACK ASLEEP
AND I'M STILL SITTING STILL
WATCHING THE SUN RAYS PLAY
AND DREAMING UNTIL
SHE'S AWAKE
AND ALL AROUND EVERYWHERE
AND SHARE THE DREAMS
I NEVER THOUGHT WE'D SHARE
Track Name: FRESH AIR
THE LIGHTS WON'T TURN ON IN THIS TOWN TONIGHT
COURSE THERE IS NOT ONE SINGLE SOUL IN SIGHT
TIMES HAVE CHANGED
AND THE PEOPLE ARE ALL GONE NOW
I GUESS THEY ALL DID WHAT THEY THOUGHT WAS RIGHT

I GOT THIS HOUSE AFTER MY DEAR DAD
IT WAS THE ONLY THING OF HIS OWN HE EVER HAD
AND THOSE BRIGHT CITY LIGHTS NEVER REALLY TEMPTED ME
I STAYED HERE AND I THINK THAT AIN'T TOO BAD

”COURSE MY AIR IS FRESH AND THE WATER MAKES ME HIGH
NATURE IS SOMETHING MONEY CAN'T BUY
AND WHEN THE SALMON IN THE CREEK
SHOWS ITS SHINY SILVER BACK
IT MAKES ME FEEL I'M ON THE RIGHT TRACK”

MY SISTER WROTE SHE'S GOT A JOB FOR ME
IN THE CITY, THAT'S THE PLACE TO BE
YOU MIGHT MAKE SOME MONEY
AND MAYBE MEET A PRETTY GIRL
AND HAVE HOURS FROM SEVEN TO THREE

SOMETIMES I MISS A REAL FAMILY LIFE
MAYBE CHILDREN AND A DEAR WIFE
BUT CHOICE IS MADE THAT I'M A COUNTRY MAN
THEY'D HAVE TO CUT IT OUT WITH A KNIFE
Track Name: ICY HEARTS
NO ONE KNEW WHAT SHE WAS TALKING ABOUT
WHEN SHE SAID SHE HAD FROZEN HER HEARTS
SMALL PIECES THAT SHE HELD DEAR
SHE WANTED TO HAVE THEM NEAR HER
SHE COULDN'T STAND TO BE APART

SHE LOVED HER HEARTS AND GAVE THEM NAMES
HELD THEM TIGHT AND SANG THEM LULLABIES
SHE RAISED THEM FROZEN IN TIME
AND MADE SHORE EVERYTHING LOOKED FINE
AND THOUGHT OF THEM WHEN SHE LOOKED UP TO THE SKY

”DRY TEARS ARE HARD TO FEEL
AND SILENT SCREAMS ARE HARD TO HEAR
AND EMPTY WORDS DON'T HELP AT ALL
WHEN HEARTS BRAKE AND TURN TO ICE
AND BECOME EXPELLED FROM PARADISE
THEY BECOME MOSTLY NOTHING AT ALL”

BUT WARM AIR IS BAD FOR ICY HEARTS
THEY DECOMPOSE AND START TO SMELL
MELTING HEARTS IN THEIR ICY TOMB
JUST ROTTEN FLESH FROM A HOSTILE WOMB
AND WHY THIS WAS, NO ONE CAN TELL
Track Name: FREE WHEELING
I'VE BEEN WORKING AT THE SAWMILL
FOR ALMOST ALL OF MY LIFE
ALWAYS CALLED MY BOSS SIR
AND ALWAYS LOVED MY WIFE
BUT ONE DAY I FOUND THEM
TOGETHER IN OUR BED
SO I THOUGHT I´LL STOP ACTING DUMB
AND DO SOMETHING ELSE INSTEAD

AND NOW I'M CRUISING THE COUNTRY
AND ONLY GOD KNOWS WHERE I´LL END
THERE´S ALWAYS SOMETHING NEW
COMING ROUND EACH BEND
I GOT 4 GOOD WHEELS
AND THE WIND IN MY HAIR
A LOOSE TIMETABLE
AND GOOD MUSIC IN MY EAR

"I AM FREE WHEELIN´
AND I´M OUT HERE HAVING FUN
I AM FREE WHEELIN´
LIKE A BULLET FROM A GUN
I´M SHOOTING FLAT OUT COAST TO COAST
INTO THE SINKING SUN
FREE WHEELIN´S JUST BEGUN"

I'VE HEARD THE PEACHES DOWN IN GEORGIA
ARE GOOD AND SWEET TO EAT
AND THE COWGIRLS IN TEXAS
ARE BEAUTIFUL AND NEAT
I MIGHT GO TO KENTUCKY
AND FIND ME A MARE TO RIDE
AND I HOPE THAT CALIFORNIA
WILL SHOW ITS SUNNY SIDE

THE ROAD IS BLACK, THE LINES ARE WHITE
AND THE SKY IS RED AND BLUE
THE SUN IS HOT, THE SEA IS GREEN,
THE LIGHT IS ALWAYS NEW
I´M A PART OF THE LANDSCAPE
A POINT VANISHING AWAY
AND IF YOU LISTEN CAREFULLY
YOU MIGHT HEAR ME SAY:
Track Name: OVER THE MOON
FEELING GOOD JUST CRUISING AROUND
IF THE ROAD WANTS TO TAKE US THERE
LISTENING TO THE HUMMING OF THE
ASPHALT AND THE TYRES
AND SOUNDS UP IN THE AIR

SHE LOOKED ME IN THE EYES
SPEAKING LOYDLY
THOUGH SHE NEVER SAID A WORD
SHE DIDN´T HAVE TO USE HER TONGUE AT ALL
AND THIS IS WHAT I HEARD
I HEARD IT LOUD AND CLEAR
THROUGH THE ATMOSPHERE
SHE SAID

”TAKE ME
OVER THE MOON
OVER HE MOON
I WANNA GET THERE SOON
SO TAKE ME OVER THE MOON
I WANNA GET THERE SOON
SO TAKE ME OVER THE MOON”

WE BEGUN TO RISE UP ABOVE THE GROUND
AND SAW THE CLOUDS GET VERY SMALL
THE STARS SHOWED US THE WAY GO
WHEN WE SAID GOODBYE TO IT ALL

THEN THE MOON TURNED US ITS FRIENDLY FACE
AND IT WAS NOT VERY FAR
I HONKED MY HORN ON THE FAR SIDE
AS WE MADE LOVE IN OUR CAR
THE MOON LIT THE WAY
AND I HEARD ME SAY
