Track Name: Ida Mae
Havin’ a hard time rollin’ out today,
Put on a record just to hear the scratch play,
Slide into the tub but it’s full of hay,
Why does it gotta be this way?

Takin’ my sweet time movin’ on today,
Get in the car and crash in the driveway,
Head down to the bus stop but the driver won’t pay,
Why does it gotta be this way?

And by the way, Ida Mae, why you gotta be this way?
Ida Mae, Ida Mae, why you gotta be this way?

Yeah, they’re gonna bury me at sea,
They’re gonna look at you and look at me,
They’re gonna say, he’s no good to you, is he?
Is he?
Stand back outta the way, missy.

Havin’ a hard time rollin’ out today,
Start up breakfast but the old hen won’t lay,
Lean back on the couch but it’s nothing but fray,
Why does it gotta be this way?
Track Name: Beautiful When You're Hurt
You got a good look at my face,
That thing has scared off tougher men.
Look here, look here, it’s not my place,
To tell you about sin,
And salvation, oh, salvation,
You can find that in the bus station.

The number six bus goes this way,
I’ve been riding it since yesterday,
I woke up here and I got nothing to say.
Like a tender spot in the small of your back,
You don’t notice it until you try to relax,
Then it really puts you on the rack.

But you’re beautiful when you’re hurt,
You’re beautiful when you’re hurt.

You got a good look on your face,
That means you won’t like my whining.
Look out, look out, it’s empty space,
To fill up with crying.
And conniptions, oh, conniptions,
You can get that with a prescription.

The free clinic is on this street,
I’ve been trying to get in for a week,
I walked in here and I took myself a seat.
Like a sore spot on the roof of your mouth,
You don’t notice it until you give it a shout,
Then it really knocks you down and out.
Track Name: You Lucky So and So
First thing this morning, I thought about her.
I’m confessing here, I see the reflection in the window.
So you doubt me, like I doubted her,
But if you’re unclear, let me tell you so.

(chorus)
You lucky so and so,
You go on and you don’t know what it’s like to be,
Heartsick, heartbroke, mostly though,
Just sick and tired of me.

’Cause I wonder about somebody,
But I don’t do nothing, that much is established.
And I talk about, I talk about somebody,
But every plan I make is drastic,
And damaged.

And you say I’m glad I’m not you, bro,
Oh, you lucky so and so.

First thing this morning, I thought about her.
I’m feeling laid to waste, I hear a voice coming from the hedgerow.
So you doubt me, like I doubted her,
But if you’re unfazed, let me tell you so.
Track Name: Warm Me
Sidle up to me,
Go or claim your place.
I can hear you talkin’,
Scarcely move to see your face.

An unfinished dark,
Feel OK, that’s new.
I needed a fire you gave me a spark,
Cool, cool blue.

Can you warm me, honey?
Can you warm me, honey?
Can you storm your way across my dry plains?
And I’m done with all the rest just the same,
And I warn you, they're all done with me,
Takes a toll to live like this,
I know you don’t want this.

It’s an unfinished room,
Fill it up that’s all.
I need a bright flame all I get is gloom,
And a long, dark fall,

Move in close to me,
Be good for you if I can.
You know me well,
But now I’ll tell you I'm just another man.
Track Name: Thinking the Worst
Excuse me, baby, that was me on the phone,
Here waiting for you.
Early this morning when I woke up alone,
I figured that, that we were through.

I’m always thinking the worst,
Gonna be thinking the worst.
These days it seems that nothing can last,
If you want to know what’s wrong,
Well, you don’t have to ask.

I’m always thinking the worst,
Gonna be thinking the worst.

Accept me, baby, for what I am in the end,
Or put me out in the street.
When supper time comes and you’re without a friend,
I never said that it was sweet.

Then you’ll be thinking the worst,
You're gonna be thinking the worst.
These days it seems that nothing can last,
If you want to know what’s wrong,
Well, you don’t have to ask.

Then you’ll be thinking the worst,
You're gonna be thinking the worst.

This heart of mine needs a little more time,
I’m getting used to more than I can stand,
And this bed of ours could use a few more bars,
I’m talking about keeping out another man.

So all right, I said it, maybe I’ll regret it,
That’s really nothing new for me,
There’s a lot of old things that honesty brings,
I guess pretty soon you’re gonna see.

Track Name: Will You, William, Prove To Be
Time comes when you know love no more,
And to draw back your hand is the wiser.
For you can’t keep buttons on a coat of war,
And you can’t share a kiss with a rider.

You have your ways and they suit you well,
But now I am grown and I can tell,
Things have changed ’tween soldier and sojourner, dear,
There is much I’m missing, I fear.

(chorus)
Will you, William, prove to be,
Too much for my forbearing?
Am I errant in wanting you with me,
In the smoky woods and the clearings,
Where peace can be found for a song,
Peace can be found for a song?

Love comes then is worn down by time,
And to bear it off is but a relief.
Still you don’t stop to gather stones for the shrine,
And you don’t care to part with your grief.

Please,
Sing a song of peace.
You’re a child and your children pray for peace,
Sing a song of peace.
Track Name: Red-winged Blackbird
I’m riding by,
You’re clinging there.
A cattail against a clear blue sky,
A boy with a little bit of hair.

What do you think about me?
Are you busy traveling on?
Me, too, if I can just get free,
If I can just, if I can just get to traveling on.

(chorus)
Red-winged blackbird,
Loved you for a long time.
But I haven’t heard,
Your call and now I’m,
Asking myself just one word,
Why?
We’re singing, why?

Rouse me, house me in those secret places,
Where you know the dangers, you know the faces,
And we keep each other safe,
Yeah, we keep each other safe.

I’m driving by,
You’re clinging there.
An old road under a sun hung high,
A man letting go of all care.

Choose me, lose me in those secret places,
Where you know the dangers, you know the faces,
And we keep each other safe,
Yeah, we keep each other safe.
Track Name: Nameless
You spend your time alone,
Just trying to get free.
One day the way you live will leave you unknown,
Even by me.

You wear your good intention,
Like a ring upon a chain.
But the gold gets cold when you make no mention,
Of the love that gave it a name.

You walk those fields and furrows,
Just waiting for the night.
The girl whose world never let her get too close,
Or too warm in the sunlight.

You call it good perception,
Like you see right through the pain.
But eyes get wise to every deception,
Of the love that gave you your sweet name.

(Chorus)
Now you’re nameless,
Baby, can you blame this on me?
Now you’re nameless,
Go on with what you came to be.

I can see in your eyes,
Why you’re sayin goodbye.
I don't want you to go,
But it's beginning to show.

I see you like before,
As you’re heading for the door,
But I know it can't be,
Now you’re nameless to me.
Track Name: Speak the Truth for Once
She walks out of the waves,
With that look on her face.
A look that says,
There is no place, there is no place.

There she is and it’s oh, so plain,
Like leaving paradise at the first drop of rain.
She just runs away,
She just runs away to stay.
She’s got that look on her face,
And in come and out go the waves.

(chorus)
Why don’t you speak the truth for once?
Why don’t you speak the truth for once?
Why don’t you see what you smash against,
The splinters of consequence,
The wreck and the ruin that always, always, always comes.
Why don’t you speak the truth for once?

She walked out of the waves,
From a home warm and safe.
A home that says,
There is a place, there is a place.

There it is and it’s oh, so sad,
Like picking up what remains of everything we had.
It just drifts away,
It just drifts away one day.
It’s not a home warm and safe,
And in come and out go the waves.
Track Name: I Sent You
In my dreams,
Yes, you are.
In my dreams,
Towns too far,
Apart.
Sent words from my heart.
I sent you words from my heart.

What is left,
Yes, I am.
What is left,
Picture man,
Alone.
Sent words of my own.
I sent you words of my own.

I did this,
But I let it go.
Sent you running,
Someday, I know,
I sent you something you’ll miss.

I send you,
I send you.

Y.D.I.D.,
U.L.E.A.V.E.M.E.
Track Name: Free to Be Free
An open field,
Hard to find in this world.
An open field,
Hard to find in this world.
Truth is concealed,
Confined by time in this world.

An empty street,
Where we walk together.
An empty street,
Where we walk together.
Truth is discreet,
Discovered by lovers together.

(chorus)
Free to be free,
How we are when we’re not looking.
Free to be free,
How we got so far from looking,
To you and to me.

A quiet day,
Hard to find in this world.
A quiet day,
Hard to find in this world.
Peace is away,
Aware of pain in this world.
