Track Name: You Know How it Goes
You Know How it Goes

I’ve been meaning to call for some time, it’s true,
Now I find your phone is dead and so are you,
I’m sorry I waited a little too long,
Ah, but you know how it goes
‘Cause you’re gone.

We were never that close except that one time,
I unzipped your heart for you and you unzipped mine,
And in that sacred moment no one was wrong,
Ah, but you know how it goes,
That moment is gone.

Won’t you meet me tonight Down here below,
In your pretty, pretty garden
Where that old tree grows,
We can dance around it,
I’ll whisper your name,
You know how it goes,
It was your favorite game.

When I saw you last night you didn’t look good,
Cobbled all together like that with wire and wood,
And suckin’ from that bottle I may one day sip,
Ah, you know how it goes
With a morphine drip

Now that you have crossed that last finish line,
There’s some things you could clear up about the other side,
And all he said, I swear it, I’ll swear it all night long,
Was you’ll know how it goes,
When you’re gone.

Won’t you meet me tonight
Down here below,
In your pretty, pretty garden
Where that old tree grows,
We can dance around it,
We’ll sing your favorite song,
You know how it goes,
So come on, sing along,

You’ll know how it goes when you’re gone,
You’ll know how it goes when you’re gone.

Track Name: These Bones
THESE BONES

I knew all along you’d be comin’
Yes, I got the memos that you sent
When you said I’d better be ready
I misunderstood what you meant
I had it all worked out perfect
Best laid plans gone wrong
Thanks for the wind and the sirens
I could not help but listen to their song

I had a dream and you were in it
Or maybe it was your dream I was in
We were wrestling on the kitchen table
I knew there was no way for me to win
The painting, why yes it’s progressing,
Thanks for the canvas and the frame
I tried to draw a wild forest fire
it looks more like a puny candle flame

CHORUS And the wheel keeps on spinnin’
And The sky’ll meet the ground
These bones have always known their destination
But I keep tryin’ to turn this thing around

Have you noticed that the landscape is changing
The trains are running faster every day
I hear the old circumfrence isn’t holding
I hear the beast is on its way
And everybody’s sort of anxious
You hear it in the nervous laugh
The turbulence is really crazy, but
No one thinks its really gonna crash

CHORUS And the wheel keeps on spinnin’
And the sky’ll meet the ground
These bones have always known their destination
But I keep tryin’ to turn this thing around
INST

I’ve heard we come in trailing clouds of glory
I couldn’t really say if that were true
I can’t name a thing I’m really sure of
I’m not even really sure of you
I’m glad you’ve got a sense of humor
After all the trouble I have caused
After all I just did my duty
Wasn’t that what my duty was?

CHORUS

Track Name: Austin
AUSTIN
I thought about you just today
And how you used to say
“Baby, try to keep the faith,”
But faith was never my strong suit,
In fact to tell the truth,
I never had what real love takes,
But there was that one time old friend,
I’d like to think you still remember when

Every star burned brighter
Every load felt lighter
Every day was full of sun
When you were the only one
First fire of the season/ Lying on the floor and teasin’
Late September, Austin was a ball/ Before the fall.

I guess its true that nothing lasts
Yeah, don’t it go by fast,
That fire burned out long ago,
It still amazes me to find
after all this time
How warm these embers glow,
Every time I hear your name
What comes back to me is always the same:

Every star burned brighter
Every load felt lighter
Every day was full of sun
When you were the only one
Makin’ love was never better/ Makin’ plans for forever,
Late September, Austin was a ball, Before the fall

Lovers have come and gone since then,
That kind of love has never come my way again,
Do you remember Austin at all?
