Track Name: Neptune
We're standing on the pier, we let the water touch our knees
you told me you were scared of those under water weeds
and now you're leaning On me, your lips are upON my ear
i never knew there was such a thing as the way I feel,
right now right here
you're taking control
your arms are around me
cuz I was taking way too long
you push me down low
and without even trying
it's twenty years you've undone
twenty years in just one night
my heart was bleeding slow
but it's humming in your hands tonight

a year has passed and i can hardly say your name
they said it wouldn't last, that your madness was to blame
how could i have known, how can a man see truth through love?
it took you away anyway twenty lifetimes undone
they're taking control
their arms are around you
I've been waiting way too long
they push us down low
and without even trying
it's twenty years .... gone
those twenty years and in just one night
my heart was bleeding slow
but it's humming in your hands tonight

I'm standing on the pier (again), now I'm falling to my knees
I can still hear you talking bout those under water weeds
and now you're leaning On me, your lips are upON my ear
i never knew there was such a thing as the way I feel,
right now right here
right now right here...
Track Name: Jo's Story
I left town for the coast
I never made it, but I made it close
what can I say? -- I lost my way a couple of times
It was a real winding road
Colorado Rocky town keep them wildfires down
That's what paid and that's what I did
I never meant to hurt you
Or to make you cry
I didn't realize you were standin' by (like you did)
Ended up in San Jose
Met a boy, got swept away
The rest you already know
cuz by the time I made it home
you saw that I was not alone
Made me feel like a real asshole

cuz through it all you waited
I didn't know you were waitin'
cuz through it all you waitied
No I didn't know you were waitin'
but you waited for me

Well that tom cat
he was no good I'll give you that
But you always knew me better than I knew myself
I'm just glad the whole things past
cuz you me, were gonna LAST
this time, we don't need ANyone's help
Certain things a girls gotta learn
on her own before she can earn
her way back home to the ones she already knew
where it don't matter where you been
it don't matter what you did
only matters that I matter to you

*refrain

that road took me where I should never have gone
that road showed me what I should never have known
but I can't hate that road to long
cuz it finally brought me home
Track Name: Untitled Song
You never figured it out
What you said or you did not say
And now it's a little too late
She finally kicked you out
Honestly I woulda done the same
If I was her and you was you

This love is somethin you don't yet understand
this love is somethin you don't yet understand
But now you're a freeeee man
try it all again

You finally figured it out
That you don't need to give a lot
You just need to give everything you got
Start again each day
Try not to make the same mistakes
But don't don't hide 'em away

cuz this love is somethin you don't yet understand
this love is something you don't yet understand
But now your a freeeee man
try it all again

*Well I'm done here hiding out
I'm not afraid to start again
I'm just dying to know
where this new road begins
I'm not afraid to bust out
I'm so ready to get away, yeah

this love is something you don't yet understand
Track Name: Diving Bell
I'm out in the water and you're on the shore
Now I'm diving under I cannot hear you anymore
you've always been proud, you've always worn a shield
now come in the water wash it off and see how good it feels
like a child
on the pier
just lean in
and come here
if only you could see yourself
I wish that you could see yourself
O that you would see....yourself
like I do
like I do-oo
like I do

now i'm in the shallow and you're in over my head
ohhh that i could follow that i could follow you where I once led
you're making it far you're practically out of view
you're crossing the ocean and i'm so, I'm so proud of you
cuz like a child
on the pier
you leaned in
lost the fear
if only you could see yourself
I wish that you could see yourself
Oh that you could see....yourself
like i do
like i do-oo
like i do
Track Name: Loose the Bond
oh black river
where do you roam?
where do you wind
when your shore leaves the road?
come back to me
untether my soul
tell me those words like you did (before..)
and then roll... on
go on now geeet out of here
roll... on, but wherever you go
come back to me
and say that I belong to you
gather me on, loose the bond, take me away

oh sweet river
where have you gone
your eddies are dry
your blackbirds have flown
come back to me
don't say that you're done
or don't say anything at all..
...just come
and we'll roll... on
go on now geeet out of here
roll... on, but wherever you go
come back to me
and say that I belong to you
Gather me on, loose the bond
...and take me away

oh black river
I heard you in the rain
I ran to the shore
I called out your name
come back to me
grant me what I've waited for
untether my soul from the pier
and we'll roll... on
go on now geeet out of here
roll... on, but wherever you go
come back for me
and say that I belong to you
gather me on, loose the bond,
take me away
gather me on, loose the bond
and take me away
Track Name: Out of Reach
You're out of reach
and moving further fast
You're fading away
running out of cash
You've grown so out of touch
just layin on the ground
The things you loved so much
are nowhere to be found
no...

but hallelujah
those things they ruled you
so let 'em fade away
just let 'em fade away

you're standing still
but you're getting far
i respect you
no one needs to
tell you who you are
the murderer was on the road
the beggar in the mill
I was in love with you long ago
and you don't even know

but hallelujah
those things they ruled you
so let 'em fade away
just let 'em fade away
Track Name: Stay A Little Longer
I got somethin
I got somethin to tell you
just let me think
let me remember what it was
okay it goes like this...
I got nothing to tell you
I just like you a lot
Won't you stay a little longer?
(You see) I got nothing
I got nothing give to you
I got nothing
nothing to prove
I got nothing
and no good reason
But I got nothing
And I got nothing to lose

I got nothing
I got nothing to my name (now you know)
I just like you a lot
could you say the same?
take your time
it's just you and me
or have you got
somewhere else to be?
Who is he?

cuz me i got nothing
i got nothing to prove to you
i got nothing,
and u got others to choose
I got nothing
and no good reason
But I got nothing
So I got nothing to lose
