Track Name: Bits and Pieces
Look at yourself
There's people that would kill for what you have
I've still got bits and pieces
Take a deep breath
Just keep quiet
Move in small steps
Stop your crying
I figured out the hard way that it's harder than you know
The more you try, the less room that I leave to let you grow
Impatient
Yeah that's me
But at least I've got the drive
So please stop blaming this on me
You know I gave you all the energy I had
Just leave because you've done enough already
All that's left of us are those dusty photographs
Dry your eyes out
You shouldn't be out on the roads like that
You could kill someone
Look at yourself
There's people that would kill for what you have
I've still got bits and pieces
Track Name: From Kentucky
I found you beneath the sheets on a Saturday bundled up escaping the cold
I let you sleep there but I was headed out for the week
10 straight nights of selling my soul
It got hard to breathe when we got north of Tennessee somewhere around Bowling Green
And I felt you creep out just a few days later and I lost it when we got through Kentucky
Guess I'll just leave you alone
Dust rolled out
You swore up and down it needed to
I guess that's where we're different
Guess I crossed the line I didn't know you drew
I chased you down
From somewhere south of Louisville
All you left there was tumbleweed
Your scent on the pillow that you used
Tried my best to sleep
I stayed curled in a blanket
Right above the cab of that RV
I thought that you'd be there when we pulled back up at home
You fled to your refuge in the city
Another week I'll write in this notebook about how I think I'm diseased
I'll try not to cling to anything irrelevant
It always takes the life out of me
This is what you chose
Dust rolled out
You swore up and down it needed to
I guess that's where we're different
Guess I crossed the line I didn't know you drew
I chased you down
From somewhere south of Louisville
All you left there was tumbleweed
Your scent on the pillow that you used
Where are you now?
I hear your voice but I can't see those eyes anymore
They're probably prettier without my reflection
I know you doubt any good in anything
It's not about upsetting me
It's not about you letting me down
All you left there was tumbleweed
Rolling and laughing in my face
I had you in my pocket
I can fight and I can scream
You were never even there at all
Track Name: Pariah
Drink up
Your shift's almost over
Go meet all of your friends down at the bar
I'm sure you'll order up a round of shots
You'll drive them all home sober cause that's the person that you are
I know the weather there might seem warmer now that I'm gone
I brought my coldness to a brand new town
Back home they say my ghost still echoes in that Sound
You just don't hear a thing above those drunken crowds
I know that things are different now
But there's still a fair amount id like to say
I told the whole east coast what I wrote you in those notes and I think that they might hate you more than me
Track Name: After The Tone
I guess you're occupied today
Just give me a shout when you get this
I saw you called last night
I hope it wasn't too important
It's been a pretty hectic last couple of days
We're leaving next week and bills have got to be paid
How's school going for you? Is your mother okay?
We've both got a lot on our plates
But I bring you with me everywhere I go
Did you notice "If You Really Want To Know"?
You were mentioned in almost every song I wrote
And then I let you go
That's what you chose
I have a habit of leaving before I'm asked
I don't like confrontation
Plus it allows me to come running back when I'm starving for attention
I've got reasons behind the way I act
I know I seem complacent
But some people look better left in the back when you reach your destination
Track Name: Things Change
11/26/2013
I really cant believe how long it’s been
They tore the fences down
So everyone can see our secret now
The sticks that stay here when the tide rolls out
They’re kind of like me
But the other way around
Do you ever walk back down to Wylie Street?
That old gazebo rotted out and took my favorite years from me
You used to walk along the rocks and tell me all about your dreams
I still remember them
Do they remember me?
I could write a thousand letters
Scribe “please forward” on their seals
But would anything get better?
Would there even be a change in how you feel?
I know you’re moving on but I’m still here
I know I tend to stray
But I always come back
Do you ever walk back down to Wylie Street?
That old gazebo rotted out and took my favorite years from me
You used to walk along the rocks and tell me all about your dreams
I still remember them
Do they remember me?
Well there used to be a fence right behind those broken limbs
You would meet me there at 6, things were easier back then
Now my skin is pretty thick
But my bones are paper thin
Please toss another brick
Because I need to feel again
