I can't help But keep myself Dragging that line To find success It's trying my health Shining light let me be Let me just shine for me Shining light let me go Let me burn awful slow I grind my teeth Sweat in my sleep Drink too much Don't rest enough Just chasing that shine Shining light let me be Let me just shine for me Shining light let me go Let me burn awful slow And it's all right another night Spent wasted in my home With my guitar and nothing more I'll miss it when it's gone Shining light let me be Let me just shine for me Shining light let me go Let me burn awful slow

My friend said he ain't got a friend But I told him I was his companion He said he didn't need it Friends only keep him grounded His brain became a cloud And it floated away Don’t go don’t ever go alone Don’t go don’t ever go alone Don’t weep and don’t moan I moved into a new apartment Completely filled up my bookshelf I read them in the morning I read them in the evening I talked into the pages But they never talked back So don’t go don’t ever go alone Don’t go don’t ever go alone Don’t weep and don’t moan When the sun light And the moonlight And the starlight Are all you need When you're Standing In that spotlight May be lonelier indeed Don’t go don’t ever go alone Don’t go don’t ever go alone Don’t weep and don’t moan

Well I kept hearing my friends saying They want trouble And sure enough there’d be violence In the future Some blood then we’d all go home Hung in Boston with some boys Too loud for living Every weekend swung some punches Won’t be forgiven Maybe so, guess I’ll never know But love will carry me home Love will carry me home Love will carry me home And I won’t be back no more Well I grew older and moved away From all that trouble Sure didn’t miss it Didn’t realize I could escape it Some towns You don’t choose your friends You’re young They’re just around you back then But love will carry me home Love will carry me home Love will carry me home And I won’t be back no more But there’s times You take your head and you hang it Set in your way, should be ashamed You ask for forgiveness But in who’s name But love will carry me home Love will carry me home Love will carry me home And I won’t be back no more

Did you ever want to be boy Out on the sea boy All of your possessions Below the deck So when they question What’s your direction You can say south boy And know it’s fact Did you ever have a daydream That made you cry For a lovely lady To call your own Then you ask that lady Does anyone really know me Well I know those worries Like my own strife ‘Cause I’ve slept alone boy Most of my life Do you want to know me girl I can see in your eyes A look of pity for the way I live Well I may not be striving But I’m surviving And I love the nighttime And I can dig that sunshine Each morn’ before I lay down And go to bed But all you know I lie And exaggerate my life But in the tales I tell Are some truths themselves Well don’t you know Thought everybody knows Well don’t you know She said farewell boy You sleep too much dear And it’s too cold up here You promised me Nashville So I lost my lady To the state of Tennessee But I want her back boy Yeah I need her here Well I want her back boy Yeah I need her here

Every Girl 02:30
I’m at the mall This girl passed me by Blue hair on her head I don’t question why I see one girl with a book One’s got a weave I like them all It’s all the same to me ‘Cause I’m in love with every girl No matter what they do or say Something ‘bout them draws on me this way Peisin mentioned She can’t go to sleep Without pasta It seemed so compelling to me They’re alway texting Always crying Always annoyed Always perfect to me ‘Cause I’m in love with every girl No matter what they do or say Something ‘bout them just rubs me this way And they can wear their stupid heals Watch reality TV Stare into their phones it’s fine with me

In My Time 04:04
Love’s a liar and a mystery That shakes and turns your stomach Gives you diarrhea But there’s good times too In bed she knows just what you want to do I always knew that it would end this way Records all strewn across the floor They look like faces Of the friends I’ve loved The friends that keep me company They sing like ghosts And teach me who I’m supposed to be Be with me in my time Stay with me in my time And love Life is lonely life is complicated I can see the reason why you’re so frustrated But it’s pointless to lose your cool It only hurts you I ain’t sorry to see that you’re happy It’s just hard to fathom because I’m not happy With the way life goes The highs and lows of it all Be with me in my time Stay with me in my time And love The waves they roll on all we know And leave the pearls behind for us to find Live with me beside the sea We’ll leave our landlocked ways for better days Just the time it takes to row this Restless wreck up to the shore Be with me in my time Stay with me in my time And love

Portland 03:42
Spent my nights on the couch Rent is free in someone else’s house And food is handed out in the park Found old fruit in the trash Now there’s oranges in the house Let’s eat! I removed the moldy part Portland’s cheaper than LA And we have more fun anyway There’s a hot tub down the street If you can jump the gate Don’t you think that you want to live like me Compost thrown out the window Now there’s bugs crawling on the floor Oh shit I think we made a mistake Portland’s cheaper than LA And we have more fun anyway Got a novel and a box of wine And I’m doing fine Don’t you think that you want to live like me Portland’s cheaper than LA And we have more fun anyway Carhartt pants and an Aus Rotten tape And I’ll smash the state Don’t you think that you want to live like me

Out Tonight 01:30
Yeah my friend they talk shit All the time about everyone But they can take it If you want to give them some They don’t let it hurt them none Every town’s a small Don’t be afraid to fuck things up You’re wasted and too loud Try and forget tomorrow comes It won’t really help you none

Our Home 02:28
Our apartment is pretty small Stacks of my shit in the closet You’re on the bed looking at Vine I’m on the couch Drunk most the time We have a home You’re not around too much I sit and play my lonely songs You stand at the door And say “I love you” But you won’t go ’Til I say it too You work too much I don’t work enough You need me to say You’re pretty each day We have a home You’re not around too much I sit and play my lonely songs For you Song for you to love To take you home Say the things that I can’t tell you We have a home You’re not around too much Six plants to call our own inside You say my name It sets my mind to wander Hope you know the spell I’m under

Got a lot on my plate today Got a lot on my plate today Got a lot on my plate today And it’s you Made the bed and cleaned out the ‘fridge Made the bed and cleaned out the ‘fridge Ate all the food that was in the ‘fridge For you Put all the dishes away Poured Draino into the drain Spent my day waiting around for you Got a lot on my plate today Got a lot on my plate today Got a lot on my plate today And it’s you

Talkin' 05:07
Saw and old friend wandering today He said he’s leaving town He said he’s changed But he’s judged for the man he was before And he ain’t doing too much talking anymore My chest it hurts most all the time From one of those youthful mistakes That brings us closer to dying So I drink and it doesn’t feel so sore And I ain’t doing too much taking anymore My girl she’s yelling in my ear Says I’m avoiding her says you’re never here And I try to tell her I’m just plain bored But we ain’t doing too much talking anymore Give me a lady and give me a bed The bed to hold me close And the lady to rest my head Give me direction and give me a home I always feel far gone When I got no place to roam Give me a lady and give me a clock I can deal with all her ticks But use less of her talk Give me a lady and rent control It may take one or it may take both To satisfy my soul

I couldn’t help but notice since winter has come No one can get you out of your home Yes you were alone You were alone You were alone And that’s fine Someone is sick in our tight group of friends Diesso asks you what card should we send But you were alone You were alone You were alone And that’s fine I bought a new shirt I thought you would like You didn’t look up when I was in sight Yes you were alone You were alone You were alone And that’s fine Walking the dog, singing a song Drinking a Coke, calling someone Yes you were alone You were alone You were alone And that’s fine
