Track Name: Spaces
Yellow moon, silver fields
And fireflies like spinning wheels
Past the pumpjacks in the night
Raised like hammers to the sky
A flatland salute to a twenty year goodbye

To the hazy nights in your brother’s car
Drinkin’ cheap red wine at only bar
Tried to drown your tracks
But you never got very far

From the miles of blue
And your dusty hands
Off the gravel roads
And the beaten path
But when you lost your everything
And what we had wasn’t all it seemed
You left us in the spaces in between

On the county line we’d drive too fast
Tryin’ to chase the future, outrun the past
On half-built dreams that were never meant to last
‘Cuz this place dried up when the fields turned brown
And the walls closed in when the mill shut down
And a blood red sun was the only thing around
‘Cept the miles of blue
And your dusty hands
Off the gravel roads
And the beaten path
But when you lost your everything
And what we had wasn’t all it seemed
You left us in the spaces in between

December winds and prairie arch
Crossed winter’s bridge to break my heart
A million miles, a thousand lives apart

So pictures fade to amber light
From summer switchgrass to silent night
Remind you of the spaces left in time

From the miles of blue
And your dusty hands
Off the gravel roads
And the beaten path
But when you’ve lost your everything
And where you are ain’t all it seems
You’ll find it in the faces
You’ll find it in the places
You’ll find it in the spaces
In between
Track Name: Red Eye Haze
I woke up in a red eye haze
I’ve been driftin’ thru for a thousand days
You hit me like a ton of bricks
And something’s got to fix me quick
So I can face morning sun
To straighten up enough, just to come undone
But I’m certain you can see right through
I crumble standin’ next to you…next to you

And I don’t care if you go
I don’t care if you stay
‘Cuz I’m already gone
In this red eye haze
In a red eye haze

Just tell me if I get too close
To standin’ at your dead end road
Well you don’t know how hard I try
To fight the urge to cross that line
When you can’t give in but you can’t hold back
You break it down to the simple facts
That it’s too late to turn back time
To steal your heart and give up mine
I’d give up mine

And I don’t care if you go
I don’t care if you stay
‘Cuz I’m already gone
In this red eye haze
In a red eye haze

It’s getting hard to hold out friend
It’s hard watching you wanting her
And I can’t make sense out of nothing
On a road that goes nowhere

I woke up in a red eye haze
Of whiskey nights and heartbreak days
You hit me like a ton of bricks
And something’s gotta fix me quick

And I don’t care if you go
I don’t care if you stay
‘Cuz I’m already gone
In this red eye haze
In a red eye haze
Track Name: What If I
She’s under your skin
And taken your heart
Tell me what I am I to do, what am I to do, what am I to do
Now that you’re gone

So you’re on your own road
With changes a- head
And I have been a fool, livin’ in a dream, pretendin’ you were mine,
Hopin’ you’d care

Did you know this indifference is all a disguise
I swear I don’t hurt, but you know that’s a lie

What if I told you I needed you now
And all that you are is all I think about
What if I
What if I
What if I

I always knew
She’d be the one
The way I have always known, I have always known
My feelings were wrong

Let me go home now
Cuz I’m not that strong
Because laughin’ next to you, standin’ next to you, invisible to you
I’ve never been so alone

Did you know this indifference is all a disguise
I swear I don’t hurt, but you know that’s a lie, that’s a lie

What if I told you I needed you now
And all that you are is all I think about
What if I
What if I
What if I broke down and told you the truth
What if I loved you the way I want to
What if I
What if I

What if I told you
I barely hang on
Watching you holdin’ her there in your arms

What if I told you I needed you now
And all that you are is all I think about
What if I
What if I
What if I broke down and told you the truth
What if I loved you the way I want to
What if I
What if I
Track Name: Resting Place
It’s dry as a bone here this summer
The weeds have grown waist high since you’ve been gone
With your words still sidewindin’ through me
They’re dragging me down; I can’t seem to push on

And I woke up this morning hung over again
So I drank my last bottle of wine
Burnin’ and bitter going down, down, down
Time’s trying to kill me
And I’m just tryin’ to kill time

There is a bare hook and nail
On this wall, baby
Where your picture used to hang
And I’ll wait forever in this house all alone
‘Cuz it’s become
My resting place

The yellow jackets are nesting in the rafters
I can hear them hummin’ from my room
I can swear that it’s you whispering to me baby
And I swear that I’ll be broken down to ashes soon

There is a bare hook and nail
On this wall, baby
Where your picture used to hang
And I’ll wait forever in this house all alone
‘Cuz it’s become
My resting place


I don’t need a stranger’s hand to guide me
To lead me to some higher ground
‘Cuz your love just takes me to a cold dark place
Where a part of me is still hidin’
It ain’t ready to come out

There is a bare hook and nail
On this wall, baby
Where your picture used to hang
And I’ll wait forever in this house all alone
It’s become
My resting place
There is a bare hook and nail
On this wall, baby
Where your picture used to hang
And I’ll wait forever in this house all alone
‘Cuz it’s become
My resting place
Track Name: Patsy Cline
She slithered through the drugstore
A cooler Patsy Cline
Her eyes shot right through me
And cracked my jug of wine
My heart is splittin’ open
My mind’s become a wreck
Somebody gotta save me
From the hive inside my head

Here she comes in vintage
Wearin’ snakeskin boots
The girl’s become a legend
I never had a clue
About your message waiting for me
The writing on the wall
The bough about to break
Another axe about to fall

Never mind you quittin’
Never mind you run
I’ll be down home in the cellar
Tryin’ to make a little fun
You’re walkin’ after midnight
Wishin’ on your star
And I will fall to pieces
Put my sweet dreams in a jar

My mouth’s as dry as cotton
She’s a suffocating weed
My eyes are glazing over
From the stories that I read
It’s not like I’d forget you
You’re always on my mind
But the sound of her boots crackin’
Follows close behind

Never mind you quittin’
Never mind you run
I’ll be down home in the cellar
Tryin’ to make a little fun
You’re walkin’ after midnight
Wishin’ on your star
And I will fall to pieces
Put my sweet dreams in a jar

Crazy, I’m going crazy
She’s got you
I fall to pieces
Crazy, I’m going crazy
She’s got you
I fall to pieces

Never mind you quittin’
Never mind you run
I’ll be down home in the cellar
Tryin’ to make a little fun
You’re walkin’ after midnight
Wishin’ on your star
And I will fall to pieces
Put my sweet dreams in a jar
Track Name: Miss You Much
Been movin’ on
Been lookin’ back
But all it takes is just one yesterday
And I’m gone off the tracks

I’m shaken up
I’m black and blue
I’ve been sleepwalkin’ in circles
And I don’t know what to do

I’m tryin’ to push myself a little farther down the line
So just quit talking ‘cuz you’ll make me fall behind
I don’t miss you much
I don’t miss you much
I don’t miss you much

So we’ll cut it loose
Then you come round, round, round
But you can’t hide and seek me
Whenever you get down
I’m layin’ low
And I wanna hide, hide
‘Cuz I know what I’ll discover
And I’m scared what you might find

You can try and run me straight into the ground
But your words are so clear that I can see right through them now
I see through them now....

I’m tryin’ to get myself a little farther down the line
And I can’t wait to see you ‘cuz
All I got is time
I don’t miss you much
I don’t miss you much
I don’t miss you much
I don’t miss you much
Track Name: Ruin Me
Ruin me, I wanna fall apart
Lay me out for the count
Help me forget, baby take me down
And ruin me

Hour by hour fadin’ away
Stealin’ the nights, hidin’ the days
Too set in stone to change my ways
So ruin me

I got my Maker’s to set things straight
And I got Sunday for sleepin’ late
I had a plan to make it right
But not tonight
So ruin me
Ruin me

Framed in blue, her confident gaze
And a way with words put me in my place
I’m out of touch, can’t play in the game
So ruin me

Your two cents was sweet,
It made me smile
But I stand in my way mile after mile
‘Til I can’t feel anything, so once in a while
You can ruin me

I’m gettin’ lines where I had none
And clouds rollin’ by where I had sun
I had faith but now it’s gone,
Everyone’s gone

I got my Makers to set things straight
And I got Sunday for sleepin’ late
I had a plan to make it right
But not tonight
So ruin me, ruin me
Ruin me, ruin me
Track Name: Athabasca
I’m headed north bound, back to my hometown
Haven’t seen you for a while
You say drive faster; we’ll meet at the tavern
I’ll make it in 20 more miles
Well I’ve learned a few things about heartbreak and gold rings
And I can admit you were right…you were right

Shake off the snow, bar lights turned low
You say ‘you’re exactly the same -
It’s sure great to see you, you look good, what’s new
I’m really happy you came’
Well everyone in here knows what we’re after
A long winter melting a-way

But you can’t hold time
Makin’ up lost years in one single night
You can’t go back
Or keep yesterday in the palm of your hand
It slips away, fadin’ like the sun at the end of the day
It’s a long time gone
We’re a long way from home
Athabasa

We sift through the ashes
You make a few passes,
There’s courage in whiskey and beer
Kissin’ tears off of my face
Take me to your place
Say the things I wanna hear
Where am I going
I’m helpless and falling
Feels like I’ve just disappeared, disappeared
But you can’t hold time
Makin’ up lost years in one single night
You can’t go back
Or keep yesterday in the palm of your hand
It slips away, fadin’ like the sun at the end of the day
It’s a long time gone
We’re a long way from home
Athabasca

Gray morning light in a small town hotel
Spills over our clothes and regrets where they fell
And it seems just a whisper could shatter the spell

But you can’t hold time
Makin’ up lost years in one single night
You can’t go back
Or keep yesterday in the palm of your hand
It slips away, fadin’ like the sun at the end of the day
It’s a long time gone
We’re a long way from home
And we’re too far gone,
Athabasca
Track Name: Read It & Weep
Well it’s dead outside
And it pains me
You won’t pass this way again
There’s nothing left
The winter wheat’s long gone
I’m drawing dust with every breath

like wildfire
I'm down on my knees
row by row black rust took the fields
Knife in my back, fork in the road
Took a girl out west
And I watched you go

A million days and a thousand miles
Won’t help this fade to black
I can see her in the bedroom
Draggin’ nails down your back
And time will get the best of me
‘Cuz it’s counting down in memories
Yesterday won’t let me be
It won’t set me free

Oh lonesome me
Cryin’ out to you
Your letter lies on the table
What can I do
But read it and weep

I feel beat down
‘Cuz I fell so hard
I can barely stand up straight
And the north wind’s shakin’ her tail at me
Sayin’ winter’s on its way
And the eaves are creaking and groaning loud
While shadows shift under heavy cloud
I need you but you can’t save me now
You can’t save me now

Oh lonesome me
Cryin’ out to you
Your letter lies on the table
What can I do
But read it and weep

There’s something that lives in the silence
And tightens its grip on me
It’s draggin’ me down into blackness
Where you can’t see
You’ll never see......

Oh lonesome me
Cryin’ out to you
Your letter lies on the table
What can I do
Oh lonesome me
Cryin’ out to you
Your letter lies on the table
What can I do
But read it and weep...
Track Name: The One
Here comes the latest on the scene
Crazy lay, tighter than a trampoline
Your newest reigning midlife crisis queen

Hopeless, helpless, mindless fun
Easy prey for you; she plays it cute and dumb
I’m countin’ down the days until she’s gone
Until she’s gone

Well l hope this high don’t clear too soon
I can’t think about the things I know you do
‘Cuz I’m so far gone, and I can’t stand
That she’s moved in on the one that I can’t have
That I can’t have

You don’t have to ask, I swear I’m fine
And I swear I don’t lie awake at night
Dreamin’ up ways to get you off my mind

I ‘m backing down, it don’t work too well
‘Cuz I crave your touch and it hurts like hell
To watch you walk the line with someone else
With someone else

Well l hope this high don’t clear too soon
I can’t think about the things she does to you
‘Cuz I’ve fallen so hard baby I can’t stand
That she moved in on the one that I can’t have
That I can’t have

Lord its killing me the way she’s claimed you
You’re my beautiful mess and the cold hard truth
Is there ain’t a goddamned thing that I can do

About the moonlight spillin’ on her raven hair
Or the morning after when you’re sleepin’ there
Captured in twisted sheets, it don’t seem fair
It don’t seem fair

Well l hope this high don’t clear too soon
I can’t think about the things she does to you
‘Cuz I’ve fallen so hard baby I can’t stand
That she moved in on the one that I can’t have
That I can’t have
Track Name: Biggest Storms
The silence in this room is deafening
I can hear the creakin’ of my bones
I can hear the dust dancin’ in sun beams
Lord how I wish you didn’t go

And ain’t it funny how
The biggest storms don’t make a sound

When an old man’s soul goes drifting away
On a breeze in the middle of the night
It’s a quiet as the stirring, when leaves start to turning
And summer whispers goodbye

And ain’t it funny how
The biggest storms don’t make a sound

Well who knows what tomorrow brings
A gypsy’s curse on angel’s wings
No one can predict these things
And this is what I’ve found
The biggest storms don’t make a sound

When a young man falls in love and it’s the real thing
And it feels so good words can’t describe
That poor boy’s heart is about to jump out
Because he can’t contain the joy that’s inside

And ain’t it funny how
The biggest storms don’t make a sound

Well who knows what tomorrow brings
A gypsy’s curse on angel’s wings
No one can predict these things
And this is what I’ve found
The biggest storms don’t make a sound
