Track Name: She's Bound to Get Hurt
Sharpen up your teeth
And learn to crawl on your birthday
And save my soul and rescue me
Darken up your eyes
And if you fall, fall in to me
And make me whole and help me see
Send her out into the world
You know that she’s bound to get hurt
God softly moved the young girl
When she was digging in the dirt
You’re hurt, so bring it back.
Straighten up my tie
Adjust my sleeves, so what’s it like?
I want to know! Will you show me?
Make up on your eyes
And rouge your cheeks, don’t compromise
You told me so then scrubbed me clean
Send her out into the world
You know that she’s bound to get hurt
God softly moved the young girl
When she was digging in the dirt
You’re hurt, so bring it back
It hurt when you came back
Track Name: By the Sea
“I think I’m changing,” said Suzanne
From her beach chair in the sand
Let’s try to get in one more swim
Before the evening tide comes in
Sitting by the windowsill
Now there’s too much time to kill
Old man, do you think we’ll pull through?
Believe in me like I do you
Take me home
I want to go home
You first told me you loved me
At our picnic by the sea
Yes, the tides they rise and fall
We married at the old town hall
Children grown the house is still
And now there’s too much time to kill
Suzanne, do you think we’ll pull through?
Believe in me like I do you
Take me home
I want to go home
Track Name: Chandeliers
Thoughts remain
Feelings unspoken
A moth to flame
Walking on broken glass
Catch a plane
To the Sahara
Then pray for rain
Running mascara
Now’s the time to get on your feet, dear
Love is blind under the chandeliers.
An unmade bed
A high threshold for pain
The things you said
A pillowcase lipstick stain
Now’s the time to put on your face dear
You were mine under the chandeliers
Track Name: Kids In Catalina
Dig your feet into the sand
Wade the ocean, take my hand
Mom and dad have gone away
Walk through flames to douse the lust
As the daylight turns to dusk
And the houseboats light bay
Swept away from native shores
Walk the plank, the diver’s bored
Sorry sir, but I was told
That these straights were paved with gold
Island plates won’t break away
Sarah’s sore from chewing gum
Drunk on Diet Coke and rum
Blue sarong and brown beret
Tonight we sail painted pastel
Goodbye sun and sea and shell
Track Name: Carry On
When we reach Stone Harbor
Following a distant light, ‘til the dawn
You were so far away
A kink in your armor
Gardeners plant forests out on your lawn
She found another grey
I won’t let them harm her
I’m so tired but I must carry on
The palm trees gently sway
Stern to port then starboard
The days are too short but the nights are so long
“Land ho!” I heard them say
Track Name: To: Alone
To: alone
On my own
I don’t know nothing
Must be stupid or something
About love
Lord, above
It rained all through July
Now it’s farewell and goodbye
To: alone
Covers blown
This letter I send
To my old fair-weather friend
It’s the end
Track Name: Throw Your Arms Around Me
He broke your heart
In fifteen places.
Remember faces
But not the names
Right from the start
Your warm embraces
But time erases and people change
Come and I’ll make you see
My darling throw your arms around me
Now that he’s back
In your good graces
Your lipstick traces
Make me afraid
I broke my arm
Running the bases
Tripped over laces
Cut by the blade
You whispered to me softly
My darling throw your arms around me
Hold on to me tightly
And darling, throw your arms around me
My darling throw your arms around me
Track Name: It's Getting Dark
And so I’m leaving here today
No, I’m not sure just where I’m going
Burn out and watch it fade away
I miss the comfort of no knowing
Like running standing in one place
A paper crown made for a child king
The truth can slap you in the face
Then slip off like a loose wedding ring
When I told, told, told you a lie
I just wanted to be where you are
And you told, told me if I try, try, try
You could help me see in the dark.
It’s getting dark.
And so I’m giving up this fight
This mountain I could not stop climbing
You are an echo in the night
A cloud without a silver lining
Please tell my papa that I tried
And tell my darling that I love her
But something deep inside me died
And follows hovering a above her
When I sold, sold, sold you a lie
I just wanted to be where you are
And you told, told me if I try, try, try
You could help me see in the dark.
It’s getting dark
