Track Name: Legs for Days
If you want to go
Then hit the goddamn the road
Cause stayin' here with me is not making you happy
And you don't have to say
Every little thing
That pops into your brain, better to refrain
You said "The home we made is mine.
I'm sure you'll find a place alright.
I'll take our cat to keep me warm through New York City storms."
And I could swear that in your voice I heard a veiled rejoice

But me I'm on the rise
I got too much on my mind
And right now my girl she waits, her legs go on for days
And you'll find yourself a man
A real intellect with plans to fix the world you're in...a house, a yard with a garden
And I'm still scared of ending up alone a pile a cold bones

So I throw clothes into an empty suitcase
Splash come cold water over my face
And I should feel better by the morning
Drive the whole night through and when the cold air
Starts to get warm I can settle down there
And I should feel better by the morning
Better by the morning
Track Name: Cannon Hill
I was waiting out
I was waiting it out
I was waiting outside all night
You can't be wrong if you're right
You can't be wrong if you're right
I was waiting outside all night

You turned it into something else
A sea I didn't plan to sail
You turned it into something else
No mile markers on this trail
Why did I comply? Something went awry
Now I'm blaming myself
Cause you turned it into something else

I was spacing out
Pouring poison down
I wasn't thinking clear like I am now
And I can't let you speak
When you're talking down to me
But I've never been good at leaving

You turned it into something else
A sea I didn't plan to sail
You turned it into something else
No mile markers on this trail
Why did I comply? Something went awry
Now I'm blaming myself
Cause you turned it into something else
Track Name: The Romance in Disappearing
So what would happen if I left
would we both forget in time and move on with our own lives
I've been wishing I could see where every path would leave
me to so I could make the right moves

Cause I can't get high anymore with out a fantasy
and I can't get by anymore with out a dream
I can't get high anymore with out a fantasy
and I can't get by anymore with out a dream

There's romance in disappearing
it's so appealing now
And if I break my old plans and flee the scene
I could have mystery, I could be anything

OHHHHHHHH OHHHHHHHH OHHHHHHHHH

So I hit the road at 4am, it was dark
And I tried to light my cigarette but no spark
Then my phone lit up from the passenger seat you called
So I threw it out the window and I turned up the radio

Cause I can't get high anymore with out a fantasy
and I can't get by anymore with out a dream
I can't get high anymore with out a fantasy
and I can't get by anymore with out a dream

There's romance in disappearing
it's so appealing now
And if I break my old plans and flee the scene
I could have mystery, I could be anything

OHHHHHHHHH OHHHHHHHH OHHHHHHHH

But every time I see you smile
The thoughts of leaving leave my mind and I'm with you
And now I don't remember how it felt to long for something new

There's romance in disappearing
it's so appealing now
And if I break my old plans and flee the scene
I could have mystery, I could be anything

OHHHHHHHHH OHHHHHHHH OHHHHHHHH
OHHHHHHHHH OHHHHHHHH OHHHHHHHH
Track Name: Should've Gotten Done
It should've gotten done
It should've gotten done
It should've gotten done but the work piled up
as it tends to do when I talk to you
When I talk to you with your furrowed brows
As they tend to be when you talk to me
When you talk to me oh my knees go weak
As they tend to do

I think you'd be doin' yourself a favor
By stayin' in my arms tonight
Maybe we could watch the sunrise over the hill

It should've gotten done
It should've gotten done
It should've gotten done but I love my words
I'll never find em now
They're strangers in a crowd
And if I knew just who they were maybe I could pick em out
But what good would it do
I'd lose em just as soon
I never know what I should say when you walk into the room
So how about a tune?

I think you'd be doin' yourself a favor
Stayin' in my arms tonight
Maybe we could watch the sunrise over the hill

I don't read minds tell me if you think I'm alright
Tell me if you think I'm alright
And if I can't have you then I don't think I want anyone
I don't think I want anyone
So it rises to my eyes and mine alone
Track Name: Til The End
I'm no good at "Hello's" but it came out so easy when I saw your face
My best friend set us up, he told me that you paint so I asked you and you laughed and then you painted the world. You said it's your favorite place and I wondered where you been and now six weeks have gone by and ever second by your side or on the phone, neither of us like being alone. So we're making plans for you and me, there's so much more we've got to see well these days I'm happyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy.

You're no good at "goodbye's" so hopefully we'll never, never ever need to try. And I've been honest from the start except for when I said we could be friends, oh no I can't pretend. Oh well this feels like we're fallin' in love you said there's butterflies inside your gut and I put em there. Well you never seem scared and I guess with all that you've been through in the last painful year or two it all makes perfect sense, I love you til the end.
