  • 03:37 Download Story Lyrics Shine

    Hold on to me darling
    Though I’ve nothing left to give you
    The wells have all run dry
    Keep my money in an old shoe

    You lost something precious to you
    But don't lose it in your mind
    A ring is just a thing
    And things can be so unkind

    It's inside me
    A thought that's only mine
    But everyone should know
    Mama’s diamond
    Shines. It still shines.

    The ground lies fallow and I bet
    It’ll lie again this year
    The stars have not aligned
    Can’t even get in first gear

    It's inside me
    A thought that's only mine
    But everyone should know
    Papa’s garden
    Shines. When it shines.

    I have so much to give you
    That I hope you’ll hold on to
    But if you don’t, that’s OK
    I will always love you

    It's inside me
    A thought that's only mine
    But everyone should know
    Mimi’s fiddle
    Shines. It really shines.

  • 04:25 Download Story Lyrics Hard Love

    He walked out
    On the only family he had
    Didn't know what else to do
    It made him so sad

    Fourteen years-old
    Wished he could go back home
    Then remembered the times
    He was left there all alone

    Just give ‘em a break
    His heart is bleeding here
    And there is no relief
    From that kind of fear


    There’s just that street
    And the old overpass
    A bundle of clothes
    A pile of trash


    Now he's gone
    Won't lie awake in that bed any more
    Never to watch his mom cry on the floor
    It's way too hard
    For that kind of life
    Those kind of lies
    That's just a hard love


    Gotta go out
    And find work to do
    Got rent to pay
    Bills that are due


    Move into a house
    Find a girl to hold
    Maybe make a home
    Get out of the cold

  • 03:12 Download Lyrics Take It All

    I've always tried to be there for you
    Whatever you need me to be
    Comes a time -- when I knew
    I can barely take care of me

    It's getting late, there's not much left to say
    And there's a new band playing downtown
    I got to get myself out of the way
    Use the music to find my ground

    You can keep my best guitar
    The one that's made it so far
    You can have my one gold star
    Take it all, take it all

    Everyone ‘round here thinks they know the score
    Always telling me what I should do
    Pack my bags and head for the other shore
    Get the hell away from you

    I think I've got a better plan
    Turn the other cheek your way
    Maybe someday I will take a stand
    But I will not resist today

    If that's not enough
    And things are real tough
    You can call my bluff
    And take some more
    Take it all, just take it all

  • 04:22 Download Story Lyrics Yours Truly

    I have taken my time to write
    This winter’s long and lonely night
    Now there’s nothing but kind and free
    Words of love pour out of me

    I just needed time to say
    I never meant no harm
    If you’re ever out this way
    I sure do miss your charm
    Sincerely, With Regard, Yours Truly

    Take a drive down Workman Mill
    Past the highway and Old Jack’s Grill
    There I’ve been known to wander ‘round
    Lost my sense, came unbound

    The sidewalks broken up with weeds
    Scattered leaves blow by
    Open wounds will  crack and bleed
    Until we really try
    Sincerely, With Regard, Yours Truly

  • 04:11 Lyrics Breakfast Out On the Lawn

    Next thing I knew, the party was over
    The lights have a strange, lonely glow
    Living rooms empty, so are the cupboards
    I'm guessing maybe its time I go

    Its been pretty quiet, most of the night
    Lots of slow, serious drinking
    The band got started, the music was tight
    And all my friends started leaving

    I feel like crying
    When I remember those nights
    Wed stay up and dance until dawn
    Sleep a few hours
    Wake up and have 
    Breakfast Out On The Lawn

    If that's how its gonna be
    I might as well stay at home 
    Maybe watch some TV
    Eat my dinner alone
    I wont even pick up the phone
    Things will be better on my own
    But I do miss those mornings

    So come on over, bring your friend
    Lets try and have ourselves a good time
    Don't worry bout your job or checks to send 
    Or if you are still in your prime

  • 04:27 Lyrics Sad Mistake

    I take no comfort from 
    The point you've been hammering on
    The deed was lost and now its done

    This pill is hard to swallow
    Tastes just like pain and sorrow
    And we'll be leaving here tomorrow

    Just a little more left to do
    Sweep the porch and we are through
    This old house has seen decades of
    Sunny days, Forts of Hay, Mother May
    And one mistake, one sad mistake

    You worked hard to pay the rent
    Now somehow we owe more than was lent
    Little rules that someone, somewhere bent

    Now I believe in the trinity
    And this hard rain pouring down on me
    And nothing, nothing is the way it seems

    Well be back
    Just you wait and see
    Hike up the swing
    In the old oak tree
    That old oak tree

  • 03:47 Lyrics Hurricane Ocean

    I think I'm going crazy, driving in my car
    The night is getting hazy and I wonder where you are
    Hey it's gonna to be alright and you know it's gonna be ok
    We go dancing by the light the light of the moon

    Seven dead soldiers all lined up in a row
    A message in a bottle that I think I already know
    Hey it's gonna to be alright, and you know it's gonna be ok
    We go dancing by the light the light of the moon

    It's like we're swimming in a hurricane ocean
    It's like we're flying through a tornado sky
    It's like being torn apart in super-slow motion
    You and I, you and I
    It's gonna be all right

    I think I'm going crazy, driving in my car
    The night is getting hazy and I wonder where you are
    Hey it's gonna to be alright and you know it's gonna be ok
    We go dancing by the light the light of the moon

    Seven dead soldiers all lined up in a row
    A message in a bottle that I think I already know
    Hey it's gonna to be alright, and you know it's gonna be ok
    We go dancing by the light the light of the moon

    It's like we're swimming in a hurricane ocean
    It's like we're flying through a tornado sky
    It's like being torn apart in super-slow motion
    You and I, you and I
    It's gonna be all right

  • 04:08 Lyrics Hurtin' Way

    I've been a fool
    To believe that it could work out
    You'd think that I would know by now
    But I need to have hope somehow
    Babe I've got my eye on you
    But I know better
    I know better

    Well I ain't falling for your touch 
    I've been around too much
    And I know that hurtin' way

    Meet me at the Red Room
    You know its better this way
    In the morning Ill be on a plane
    Tonight I'm just a little insane
    Girl, you got your eye on me
    But you know better
    You know better

    This always happens 
    When I'm feeling all alone
    But Id feel better quick if you 
    Hold me, hold me
    Hold me, hold me

  • 02:36 Lyrics Hot Soup

    Caution where the children play
    Busier than yesterday
    I see gum nuts on the ground
    The leaves are barely holding on
    My old ways are almost gone
    Hot soup is on the stove 
    Mamas got a heart of gold

    Where do you go when you're feeling blue?
    Or busting a bad attitude?
    Or stretching the truth?
    This medicine should make you well
    Down the hatch and give em hell
    Hot soup is on the stove
    Mamas got a heart of gold

    My only comfort is in old ways, and long and sunny days
    I had a wagon once, I traveled around and made things right
    Now I'm older I will slow down, and follow my heart
    Wherever it may lead
    That's all that I've got left
    And everything I need

    Easy come and easy go
    The older kids put on a show
    It makes the baby laugh 
    Ever since I found a home
    My old ways are all but gone
    Hot soup is on the stove 
    Mamas got a heart of gold

  • 04:00 Lyrics Stay the Night

    There ain't a lot in this cold lonely spot
    A rusty fire gnaws on our soul
    Let's find us some stones and let's build us a bridge
    Working together we will

    Let's walk across the water 
    And skip across the bay 
    And when we reach the ocean 
    Let's stay 
    Let's stay the night 
    Stay the night 

    You brought us new blankets 
    Across the old broken tracks 
    We shared them the best that we could 
    Desperate men, freezing rain, these trying times, numbing pain 
    It's a miracle you returned, yet you did 

    And all those things we once had 
    Now all lost it seems so sad 
    But there's glimmers of light if you see 
    When the going got bad you never got mad 
    You've given me a chance to be me 

    If you stir the soup well then I'll wash the pot 
    We'll sing a couple songs for the kids 
    Let's stoke the fire high, pack a blanket warm and dry 
    Farewell to this place, let's bid 

    Let's walk across the water 
    And skip across the bay 
    And when we reach the ocean 
    Let's stay 
    Let's stay the night 
    Stay the night

  • 03:54 Lyrics I'll Be a Star

    I never had a chance
    The best I could do was never good enough
    It was a short romance
    But better than that is gonna be very tough
    Everything got burned to the ground
    And all that's happened has really taken its toll
    I feel like I've drowned
    But I try not to lose control

    'Cuz I've got a pen and paper, a tape recorder,
    Lots of time and my electric guitar
    I should write a song about it, clear the air a bit
    And get some release
    Just a little moment of peace
    And Ill be a star
    Though my song wont get played on the radio
    Yea, I will go far
    But my song wont get played on the radio

    Its just a matter of time
    Shell come around and soon shell be begging for more
    I may be past my prime
    But I've got a lot to give, and honey, this is a war
    Shell try and take my soul apart
    But I wont give in, after all, I'm better than her
    Once my song reach the charts
    All this will seem like a blur

  • 03:39 Lyrics Matter of Time

    I came over 'cuz I heard you're sad
    And I wanted to give you a lift
    Bad news travels fast these days 
    I think you catch my drift
    What 'cha doing bout supper?
    Have you got any food?
    I could throw something together 
    That could really help with the mood
    We should stick together tonight

    Late last night when I got the call
    I could see in my minds eye
    You crying on the floor in the kitchen 
    Hoping it was a lie
    Things are looking pretty nasty 
    We just need to lay low
    Soon the thing will come crashing
    And will land its final blow
    But well be together the whole time

    I'll be right here, I'm not leaving
    You just take care and hold on tight
    And it will be alright

    Time has passed since that terrible day 
    You seem to be getting on well
    I know it took a year or two
    And that it felt like hell
    Now remember that promise
    You made at the time
    If you could ever return the favor
    You said that would be just fine
    I could sure use you here right now

  • 04:04 Lyrics Who's Gonna Save My Soul

    A bomb blast and a bank, the roof it crashed down 
    The flames they shot up, good people went down 
    Lost love ones and friends 
    It's like songs without sound 
    And they paid 

    Old Charlie did evil he, he laughed at the law 
    They say he shot his own cousins 
    As if we all saw 
    A rope in the distance slips under his jaw 
    And he paid, he paid 

    Who's gonna save my soul 
    Who's gonna save my soul 
    Who's gonna save my soul 
    For the last time

    We're all so much safer now 
    That old Charlie's gone 
    That's why we did it 
    To preempt future wrong 
    In burning blue embers 
    In shock and in awe 
    They paid 

    Please don't remind me 
    There's still a freak on the loose 
    I don't give it much thought now 
    To tell you the truth 
    So you either stand with us 
    Or you want us to lose 
    To lose and pay, and pay

  • 03:22 Lyrics Slow Things Down

    Let's go out and get a bite for supper
    Maybe see a movie later on
    Drop by the bar and have a drink or two
    This week is catching up to me right now

    Please take me home
    There's nowhere else I wanna go
    Time to slow things down

    Just bring me a couple aspirin
    When I wake we can have that talk you wanted
    After I've had my coffee
    And the kids have all been fed

    You're too good to me, and Ill be better darling
    I know I should and its long overdue
    When the morning light lands on our window 
    On a Saturday some June

  • 03:41 Lyrics Everything's Gonna Be Fine

    You've been working, I've been fooling
    'bout nothing I've got to hide
    Been a little hard going backwards in time
    But that's what it is
    And Everything's Gonna Be Fine

    There've been worse times, that's a fact that
    I don't dare deny 
    But it feels wrong, like committing a crime
    And that's what it is
    But Everything's Gonna Be Fine

    God I love you, I just have to 
    Kiss your picture goodnight
    That's a little sad, but you're not around
    And that's what it is
    And Everything's Gonna Be Fine

    It is simply so fantastic 
    That you might need a little advice
    Take it slow at first, then give it a shove,
    'Cuz that's what it is 
    Then Everything's Gonna Be Fine

  • 02:45 Lyrics Coming Over

    You once told me how things should stay
    You said its for the best if I stayed away
    Now I see that was bad advice
    So I've made up my mind and I wont think twice

    We had a rough patch for a couple of years
    But there was something real in the laughs and tears
    Even though that was a long time ago
    I want the record straight so here I go

    Yeah, that's right
    I've crawled out from under
    Man it makes me wonder
    What took me so long, but now I
    I'm coming over
    Now I'm coming over

    Remember how we took those walks 
    In the early morning when the world was asleep
    But then you pushed me far away
    And just like a dog I stayed
    Waiting for you to release me some day

    Please don't cry, I'm coming over
    You know why, I'm coming over

  • 03:49 Lyrics Leaving Home

    Well we got in just after sundown 
    We took a walk down towards the shore 
    We heard those instruments beating 
    Behind that old red door 

    The water flowed like wine 
    Or something like that 
    The oxtail soup we could not ignore 
    Here's another log for the fire 
    There's another knock on the door 

    So, so long 
    I'm leaving home today 
    So, so long 
    Just the memories remain 

    Well it's warm as the family cello 
    Or the fiddler we all grew to adore 
    Got a new song for us to sing together 
    It just walked on through the door 

    So, so long 
    I'm leaving home today 
    So, so long 
    Just the memories remain

  • 05:07 Lyrics Whatever Happened

    You got a look in your eye
    Like you're running out of gas
    You're going too fast
    And no ones trying to stop you
    You better take a closer look my friend
    Figure out who's to blame
    Maybe its the same
    Person in the mirror 

    You should try to take some time off
    Take a drive up the coast
    Find the most
    Quiet lonely meadow
    Hold your sad face in your hands
    Try to comprehend
    Try to mend
    And let the tears wash over

    Whatever happened to you?
    Whatever happened to you?
    Whatever happened to you?

    Better to have never loved than lost
    Or better to have tried
    And always cried
    When you looked out the window
    You can run but you cant hide
    From the person you've become
    Not very fun
    Not the one we all remember

    Whatever happened to you?
    Whatever happened to you?
    Whatever happened to you?

  • 03:48 Lyrics So Happy Birthday

    Too many pills and nights without sleep
    At the end of the rainbow, don't find anything
    Fumbling through memories of when you lived here
    Last of the good times, last of the tears

    So Happy Birthday
    Were all getting older but you
    I'm sure that wont stop you
    From feeling sorry for yourself
    And rolling over down there
    Rolling over down there

    Vera its hard when the train passes by
    Reminds me of times you made all the kids cry
    You never approved of what we did or what we said
    You just turned your back and took to your bed

    After all this time you'd think that
    I could decipher the messages 
    But there so screwed up
    And who's to say why
    I love you still 

    Every year I come back and stand in this place
    Where all the noise from the freeway does all but erase

  • 04:05 Lyrics Lately

    Loving, it's not a mistake love
    It's something we must hold on to
    It's something to do

    Take me, for better, for worse now
    I'll try to do my best for you 
    I hope you will too

    Lately I've been thinking about you

    Remember, all the times that I told you
    'bout how you were an open door
    That I could walk through

    I stormed in, and I don't regret it
    Though there's been times that have tried my soul
    They were hard for you too 

    Lately I've been longing after you

    I must confess
    I get lonely, sometimes
    But its a gift 
    When your words 
    Bring my heart back home

    Darling, it does not really matter
    If we always get along or not
    Let's give it our best shot

    Lately I've been thinking about you
    Lately I've been longing after you

  • 05:06 Lyrics Summer Fades Away

    Don't walk away
    The bitter blue that you embraced
    Will fade away in due time
    Just have your say
    When all is said and done 
    You'll see this mess will be fine

    I do declare, fall is in the air, summer fades away

    Frustrated tears
    Stupid arguments about 
    Dishes you left in the kitchen sink
    Another year
    We barely made all the mortgage payments
    And that makes me pause to think


    No politics, we've done that before
    No fancy words to confuse me
    Just try to make me believe
    You'll stay, I need to believe,
    You'll stay, I need to believe

NOTES
We have been working on this record for about six years. Many life events have happened along the way. Babies have been born, drummers lost and found. At times it has been a struggle to keep things going. But the music survived and came through and here we are. This record introduces the song writing of Kevin Drinkard which blends well with the songs by Peter Goodman. We like to think they work together like …

  • 04:31 Lyrics Ordinary Problem

    In the middle of the middle in the middle of the afternoon
    Sitting staring at the ceiling I'm so fazed I don't know what to do
    It appears that my charm all my charm has lost it's charm
    Maybe no big deal for some but for me it's cause for alarm
    Major cause for alarm

    I found a strand of your hair on my shirt 'bout an hour ago
    Since then I've been wondering what to do with it and now I know
    I'll get an iron and some wax paper
    I'll make a bookmark to mark my place
    And when I see it I'll be reminded that you left a trace
    You left a trace

    It's an ordinary problem
    When the roof starts leaking
    You run to where it's dry
    In the normal evolution
    When the sequence breaks down
    You get to take another try
    In a subsequent conclusion
    It's a cat and mouse game
    A dog eat dog goodbye
    But since I have paid attention
    I know you won't leave me hanging
    You won't leave me high and dry

  • 03:24 Lyrics If You Come By

    If I had a leg to stand on
    You know I'd come down
    And spend some time with you
    But I'm a broken man
    With a largely unproven plan

    And with the way my luck's been going
    All my grey hair's showing
    And my heart's turned black and blue
    I think I might fade away
    Hold the fort down some other day

    But if you come by
    You'll find me down at market square
    Where I play guitar while people stare
    And buy everything they ever wanted
    Please try to find me if you still care

    Soul searching and street begging
    It's all been done before
    Final hour of everyday will release me
    From the burden of wondering
    Will you come
    I wonder if you'll come

    But when I get my act together
    And it's warmer weather
    And my bills are paid when due
    I'll hop on the closest train
    Wind my way back to you again

  • 03:49 Lyrics Tear It Up

    Mama's in the kitchen and
    Father's in his bedroom and
    We are in the basement
    Playing rock 'n roll

    Danny's got a Marshall and
    Even though he's blind he can
    Shred his strat-o-caster and
    Never miss a note

    Oh come on

    They like me `cuz my hair is long
    And I've got a Fender bass
    Now Danny's got a brand new song
    He really wants to play

    Tear it up
    I love that last line you played
    I'm gonna sing it every day
    From now on

    We were children
    The only need we had was love
    We were what we would be
    In just that moment of time
    In just that moment of time

    Now I play acoustic
    But I still miss the jams
    Our old band would always have
    When our friends would come around
    There was always music
    The girls would start to sing along
    Now Danny has a brand new song
    He really wants to play

  • 03:53 Lyrics Zoe's Ring

    It's been months since I walked with you
    Down by the river in the evening glow
    The aspens whispered what I would not hear
    The future's now and I don't wanna go


    The moonlight smells like an early rain
    There's a stony chill in the air
    I've fallen down, I'm gonna fall again
    See my soul laid bare


    It's been coming on
    And your signals getting clear
    I'm not feeling strong
    And my heart is hungry
    For the one thing I hold dear
    I wish you could be here

    Zoe's got a new ring and I don't care
    Got to get some sleep tonight
    In my younger days I would pine for her
    Nowadays I do what's right
    I'm too tired to fight

    Your windows yellow when I pass on the street
    I know I shouldn't waste my time
    But it's been lonely living outta my backseat
    And walking's never been a crime

    There's many ghosts I have to deal with
    But you're the one that scares me more
    Now summer seems just like a myth
    I'm wondering what it was for

  • 03:20 Lyrics Greenleaf Town

    She had a little room off central square
    And she could sing like a bird

    She would help me
    With a little lesson here and there

    Now I'm back in Greenleaf Town
    Where the leaves are turning brown
    If you would just come around tonight
    That would be all right

    She had the whitest skin you ever saw
    It was soft as down

    Took her chances
    Made a phone call that changed it all

    God in heaven looks down upon this place
    She still lives here
    And I remember
    Every time she came to me

    She gave me a thrill I can't repay
    Even though I tried so hard

    Feather earrings
    Golden bracelets made of hay

  • 03:16 Lyrics Madolyn

    I always think of magic
    When I remember those days in Marseille
    You were the queen of us all
    We had such a ball
    You'd start the party in the morning each day

    You'd dress for each occasion
    Your bikini was red, white & blue
    In your Mustang GT
    With a lemon-drop tea
    You were the picture of all that was new

    But you never would be
    What we though you should be
    And that was the very best thing
    Now we always sing...

    Oh Madolyn
    We've given you everything
    Now look at the state we're in
    Oh Madolyn
    It seems such a shame
    That you've got to get going again

    The picture in your hallway
    Of a man floating free in the air
    Was inspiration to me
    And made me feel free
    To run my fingers through your thick hair

    You never needed any one besides you
    When you set the stage
    It was all that we could do
    To believe it was true

  • 04:44 Lyrics No Wrong No Right

    You push, you shove
    You put your shoulder to it
    The way you would
    If you were hanging by a thread

    I block, I swerve
    I focus my attention
    As if I could
    Be still alive but left for dead

    I lay me down
    I need a little breather
    A pint or two
    To help me clear my head

    You never called
    Never answered any questions
    You just repeat
    What you've already said

    I will see you in the morning light
    When the sun has had the final word
    Until then let's have an understanding

    No wrong no right

    Where'd you go
    You've disappeared entirely
    I see you there
    But your heart is somewhere else

    You've left me here
    Alone, almost forgotten
    A single tear
    A book upon a shelf

    You be the doctor
    I'll be the doctor too
    We'll tear it wide open
    `till it bleeds into black and blue

  • 04:49 Lyrics Trip to Mexico

    There's a dusty church in Soledad
    With alter laid in blue
    And a sacred heart that looks so sad
    Turning thorns to thoughts of you

    I should a had another life
    I should have let you go
    I should have kept you as my wife
    And blown off Mexico 

    (Come on give it one more chance)

    Keep on trying
    Got to move along
    Keep on trying
    Couldn't be that wrong
    Keep on trying
    Everyday is everyday
    Keep on trying
    Got to find another way

    I've got a kid who understands
    This need I have to run
    We had a drink in Mazatlan
    Then walked out in the sun

    He said I don't have to explain
    All these questions that start with why
    For a while, there's a little pain
    Then a part of you just dies

    (Come on give it one more chance)

    Maybe next Sunday
    Maybe this time, we'll take a ride
    It comes down to one day
    When I'm not afraid
    To be alone
    With you 

    I took a trip to Mexico
    Cant recall the reason why
    I think I'm ready to let go
    Give it all another try

  • 04:42 Lyrics Salt Pepper Pie

    `Bout time you had a salt pepper pie
    So come on down, come on down

    It's a bargain for a wink of an eye
    `Till you hit the ground, hit the ground

    It's kind of sweet and hard to explain
    Soft and round, without a sound

    It's like a ghost, it will drive you insane
    Come on down, hit the ground

    Tonight

    Sad if you won't give it a try
    Shame if I am telling a lie
    Happy if you learn how to fly inside
    The thrill will curl your toes
    Come on inside
    It's something you've got to know
    So good to let your face glow
    `Bout time you had a salt pepper pie

  • 04:26 Lyrics Grey

    The sun is shining brightly
    Over at your house today
    But at my house it is lonely
    And everything is gray

    It seems a bit unfair how
    The story changes everyday
    What the rumors have not told me
    Your face just gives away

    And it's hard when the money's low
    It's hard to know the things I know
    Easy winds seldom blow
    Around here

    That babies got a fever
    And her cries are loud and strong
    This happens every winter
    When the nights start getting long

    I should have been there on Sunday
    There was really nothing wrong
    But I'm a hundred miles from nowhere
    I guess that's where I belong

    That's a beauty of a tattoo
    Troublemaker on your skin
    What you really wanted for your birthday
    Was a brand new way of thinking

    I've got to get off of this freeway
    `cuz all the cars are all on a binge
    I'm just trying to say I'm sorry
    For the stupid way I've been

  • 04:10 Lyrics Applewood Candle

    I had a dream
    We lived so far away
    None of our friends could even find us
    We worked the farm everyday

    Sometimes late at night
    We'd head out to the old red barn
    We'd listen to the sleepy horses breathing
    Toss the calico a ball of yarn

    It's getting kinda late
    How 'bout a kiss?
    I'm thinking its bedtime
    In the softest room
    I'll light the applewood candle
    I wanna go soon, soon, soon

    So get me my hammer
    Bring me some nails and wood
    I'll try to build a house that we can live in
    I think that would be good

    It might be sorta small
    But it would be our own
    We could sit on the porch in our old rockers
    And watch that sun go down

    I've been thinking I can see the earth
    Spinning `round
    I can sense the years winding down
    I can feel my heart and where it's bound
    Where it's bound
    I can feel where I'm bound

    But if you have to lie
    'cuz you've done something wrong
    Write it all down in a sad letter
    I'll find when you're dead and gone

    I'll do the same
    But we should never read that shit
    Just toss it in my grave while no one's looking
    And let the earth cover it

  • 04:24 Lyrics Keep Me In Mind

    Don't forget to take your medicine
    And try to keep the house somewhat clean
    Always make a point to wave to the train
    And keep me in mind.

    Have your girlfriends over for some tea
    Organize your new philosophy
    Watch "Lucy" reruns on TV
    But keep me in mind.

    Keep me in mind, keep me in mind

    Safe at home in your crazy world
    You can manage all your daily trials
    I'm alone but I always
    Think of you, holding your own

    It's lonely at my desk right now
    My home page won't render anyhow
    The boss just beat me with her brow
    Please keep me in mind

    If your old boyfriend calls, just let it ring
    If you pick it up, please say everything
    He may play guitar, but he can't sing
    So keep me in mind

    Keep me in mind, keep me in mind

  • 04:16 Lyrics Honeypot

    I don't know but I've been told
    The streets of heaven are paved with gold
    When you drive around
    Get to wear your crown

    You'll have time to kill but no place to hide
    It's murder in the morning or its suicide
    When the angels fly
    It's like a lullaby

    Funny how the sweet tastes sour
    When my honeypot's gone for a while
    I've given up on cigarettes
    But I can't stop shaking
    My heart's still breaking
    I feel forsaken by you
    It's true

    When you coming home
    I hate to be alone

    In this broke down place I saw a friend of mine
    She was washing all the dishes that got left behind
    Such a lonely fate
    Feeling second-rate

    So she went and bought herself a yellow diamond ring
    When she holds it in the light she can make it sing
    It's the only way
    She can have her say

    I got a train that runs through my backyard
    When it's once in a while, well it's not that hard
    But don't you fret
    `Cuz I ain't through yet

    On the Forth of July in the parking lot
    I drink beer with my sister who I love a lot

  • 03:54 Lyrics Song Too Small

    All is lost
    If you won't believe me
    When I say
    I never meant to hurt you

    Tell me it's OK
    And I'll rejoin the living
    And learn how to pray
    And only believe in

    Words that ring true
    And thoughts that are lovely
    Hearts that are pure
    In all of their glory
    And many more things
    This song is too small for them all

    Once in a while
    We all need forgiveness
    This time it's me
    I desire your compassion

    On bended knee
    I beg for your mercy
    Be kind to me
    You know that I love you and

    Words that ring true
    And thoughts that are lovely
    Hearts that are pure
    In all of their glory
    And many more things
    This song is too small for them all
