Fumes And Faith

I broke down in the city
She broke down and prayed
We were half a mile from the county line
Running on fumes and Faith
The midnight train was rolling
The sound was pounding in my soul that night
Ohh, running on fumes and faith

I broke down in the city
On the corner of south Orleans
A band was playing in the alley way
In the echo of cop car screams
And the policeman was growling
His shiny boots like window panes at dawn
Ohh, running on fumes and faith

I never thought that we would live our lives this way
Please don’t leave now, find a way to stay

I broke down in the city
She broke down and prayed
We were half a mile from the county line
Running on fumes and faith
Ohh, running on fumes and faith

Stay Here Now

All the hands I’d hold, just to make you stay
When the camera’s off, when the lights all fade
Every early morning, every inch of day
When the walls close in, at the end of our parade
I’ll go down swinging

If I call your name out loud, would you stay here now?
Take me away, take me away

Dust off your heart it’s not a sin to be awake, to be alive
Open up the water’s deeper than it’s wide
And it goes for miles and miles
Scream while your voice will listen
If I call your name out loud, would you stay here now?
Take me away, take me away

All the hands I’d hold, just to make you stay
When the camera’s off, when the lights all fade
Every early morning, every inch of day
When the walls close in, when the walls close in

If I call your name out loud, would you stay here now?
Hold your breath and don’t look down, would you stay here now?
Take me away, take me away

Please Take Me Back

Please take me back, I’ve forgotten my place
To when the morning was joy and the sunrise her grace

I guess we’re older now, and the truth ain’t the same
I remember you told me that I’d be your man, and I can
And I will

So I left it alone, you never got in my way
I probably should have more to show than the things we can take,
That we made

Don’t give up on my now, Don’t give up on me now (x3)

Please take me back, I’ve forgotten my place

Black Water

She comes down, down from the city
Killing time was all she had
She made a fortune nickel-and-diming
He don’t, he don’t want her no more

Ooo

Morning comes, clouds in the sky
Black water coming down the wall
And by evening, he couldn’t find her
She goes, she goes there no more

They say she’s wanted all over town
But what he don’t know
Is breaking him, breaking him down

Back down, oh black water (x4)

Oh the winds they come a blowin’
Making time
He made his peace with the devil
Lord, hear him call

Ooo

Spokane

I’m moving on and I’m headed to the sea
Though I’ve not figured out where my battles will be
Taking what I can and stealing what I need
I’m moving on and I’m leaving today

All out of time, stealing a breath
And it might be the last one but I couldn’t care less
The glasses of wisdom are twisted and broken and cracked

It was hours ‘til sunrise and days since she left
It was written on thin sheets of dead trees in lead
I may be too drunk to voice my regrets
But I’m alive

The hours spill over like wine, and I’m through wasting my time

Battered and broken the words she had spoken were lies
I’ll heed the message, that this painful lesson is a sign

I’m moving on and I’m headed to the sea
Though I’ve not figured out where my battles will be
Taking what I can and stealing what I need
I’m moving on and I’m leaving today

I’m moving on and I’m headed to the sea
Though I’ve not figured out where my battles will be
Taking what I can and stealing what I need
I’m moving on and I’m leaving today

Carry On

I hope you carry on,
when it gets too hard for me I hope you carry on

When you get tired out
I hope you’ve got a friend to come around and save the day, save the day
I never meant it when I said I never want to see you again,
But I said it anyway, I said it anyway

I hope you carry on,
when it gets too hard for me I hope you carry on

Don’t you ever turn your back on you,
The only one you’ve got that knows the truth

Don’t take my smiles for weakness
I’ve been up the mountain and the sunset’s amazing
This is your second chance, this is your one last shot
Despite the circumstance I won’t be something that I’m not

I hope you carry on,
when it gets too hard for me I hope you carry on

Heaven Help Us

Heaven help us now
When you’re lost out in the crowd
Throw away your self doubt
We’ll find our own way out

When your on your own, and you might let go
Just hang on

I will be here waiting when you get back from New York City
‘Cus what the hell am I supposed to do tonight?
We both stared out the window on that ride through San Francisco
Yea those hills, you know, they’re kinda just like us

When you’re on your own, and you might let go
I don’t know what I don’t know
When you’re on your own, just hang on

When you’re on your own, and you might let go
I don’t know what I don’t know
When you’re on your own,
I don’t know what I don’t know,
When you’re on your own,
Just hang on

On My Mind

Every word I know has a silent drawl
And some sinners men, built these four damn walls
With a little help I will be fine, fine, fine
But you, will be on my mind

Took me all damn day to fill up my cup
Ain’t so easy now to pull my boot straps up
With a little help we will be fine, fine, fine
But you will be on my mind
Yeah you, will be on my mind

Ain’t no winter cold, ain’t no mountain tall
Ain’t no words that you could say to me at all
I’m your reckless captain, and I’ll be fine, fine, fine
You know you will, be on my mind

On my mind, on my mind, yea you will be on my mind
On my mind, on my mind, yea you will be on my mind
