DISCOGRAPHY

THE ISLANDS

Been falling back lately
Losing my gaze, been at sea for days 
And I’m wanting home badly 
All these waves have had me 

But a distant glow’s been leading me on 

There’s a lighthouse lighting the night up 
Like a siren, gotta get some, gotta get some and with your fire, you could ignite us 
And your eyes can see through the silence of the islands 

This ship may be sinking 
There’s cracks in the hull, it’s filling with water 
And I might not make it home 
Am I joining the fallen? 

Will the distant glow carry on? 

There’s a lighthouse lighting the night up 
Like a siren, gotta get some, gotta get some and with your fire, you could ignite us 
And your eyes can see through the silence of the islands 

There’s a lighthouse lighting the night up 
Like a siren, gotta get some, gotta get some and with your fire, you could ignite us 
And your eyes can see through the silence

There’s a lighthouse lighting the night up 
Like a siren, gotta get some, gotta get some and with your fire, you could ignite us 
And your eyes can see through the silence of the islands 

You see through the silence of the islands 
See through the silence of the islands

CHANDOS

Couple hours and I’m non-stop dreaming
Reminisce about a road this long
Sweet nostalgic kind of north lake fever
Radio would play a wheat king’s song

Take an exit, turn the car around
Load the fishing boat and hit the ground running
Take a backroad to a northern town
Roll the windows down and breathe that city out

We’re going up to Chandos honey
I know it’s kinda far, I know we got no money
But I’m dreaming of the lakeside and I gotta have it

We’re going up to Chandos baby 
I know it’s getting late, I know it’s kinda crazy
But I’m thinking that it’s time to get away from the traffic

Mr. Country’s got his corn fields growing
Reaching higher just to feed his cows
They’ve been drinking from the rivers flowing
From the waters where the hills are rolling out

So now..

We’re going up to Chandos honey
I know it’s kinda far, I know we got no money
But I’m dreaming of the lakeside and I gotta have it

We’re going up to Chandos baby 
I know it’s getting late, I know it’s kinda crazy
But I’m thinking that it’s time to get away from the traffic

We’re going up to Chandos honey
I know it’s kinda far, I know we got no money
But I’m dreaming of the lakeside and I gotta have it

We’re going up to Chandos baby 
I know it’s getting late, I know it’s kinda crazy
But I’m thinking that it’s time to get away from the traffic

Thinking that it’s time to get away from the traffic

COYOTES

There's coyotes 

Howling out as if they know me 

The candle's burning out to leave me lonely 

Like a king without a crown 

Or the moon spinning circles looking down 

In Wyoming 

The flame is burning out but you're my only 

My solitary crowd to keep me company 

And offer my way out 

Of the labyrinth of common fate and doubt 

There's coyotes 

Howling out their karaoke 

They're circling the town to catch their phoney 

He's calling out the loudest 

Cause he feels like no one else can hear his sound

A THOUSAND WORDS

There’s a thousand words on the tip of my tongue  
That I’d like to say but I can’t choose one 
There’s a thousand words spinning ‘round in my brain 
You’ve got a way of driving me insane 

I remember we were seventeen 
Our hearts were broke, but the grass was always green 
I tried too hard to make you stay 
And in the end, it just pushed you away 

But sometimes things align 
It all works out in time 

If I had to fall 
I’d fall for ya 
If you can’t get home 
I’ll wait for your call 

I’ll wait for your call 

I decided that I had to get clean 
Take care of myself to take care of my queen 
Now I can give you everything that you need 
Tell me love, what’s your wildest dream? 

Cause sometimes things align 
It all works out in time 

And if I had to fall 
I’d fall for ya 
If you can’t get home 
I’ll wait for your call 

And if I had to fall 
I’d fall for ya 
If you can’t get home 
I’ll wait for your call 

I’ll wait for your call

WATERFALL

Set up camp on the cliffside 
Through the early morning fog 
Spent a life chopping down pine 
To fill the river up with logs 

To stop the waterfall 

Now water fills the campsite 
Coming down from the dam 
I’ve been trying to release it 
The best I can 

And let the waterfall 

Now the air calls for springtime 
Jumped the cliff, cannonball 
Leave that old dam behind, 
Make some sense of it all 

And ride the waterfall 

Ride the waterfall

TAKE A HOLD OF ME

 I went back to wandering 
Cause you’ve been gone and you left me with nothing 
Just food for the wildlings 

They said you’d been broken 
By hard knocks and hoping that one day you’d get it 
But you won’t admit it 

I said you 
You can barely move 
I’ll take a weight off you 
Said yee 
I could set you free 
Take a hold of me 

You’ve been facing your back to the winter 
You can’t know the face of the coming storm 
All the cracks in the floorboards are splintered 
But I’m taping ‘em up, got a fire going to keep you warm 

I said you 
You can barely move 
I’ll take a weight off you 
Said yee 
I could set you free 
Take a hold of me 

I said you 
You can barely move 
I’ll take a weight off you 
Said yee 
I could set you free 
Take a hold of me

RIVERBANK

 Holding your breath, watching the time 
Praying to find 
Your restless hoping 
Will take you for a ride 
Even the flee market man raised the price signs 

You're counting your pills 
You can't sit still 
Long enough to take your picture 

But I'd sit out on this riverbank 
With you and watch the sun just 'cause I missed ya 

In the summer 
In the summer back home 
We were fine on our own 
Wasting the days and digging up bones 

You're counting your pills 
You can't sit still 
Long enough to take your picture 

But I'd sit out on this riverbank 
With you and watch the sun just 'cause I missed ya 

But I'd sit out on this riverbank 
With you and watch the sun just 'cause I missed ya

REALLY DON'T MIND

I wanna take you to west street 
I wanna show you the best of me, baby 
Honey maybe I’m guessing 
That neither one of us is better alone 
And the bank account’s blown on whiskey and coke 
I ain’t young anymore 
But if you come to see, you’re not gonna wanna leave 

And no one’s going home in the dead of winter 

We can stay together for the rest of the night 
I really don’t mind, I really don’t mind 
If you didn’t get me I’ll be singing it twice 
I really don’t mind taking my time 
The moment’s gone too fast 
When you’re facing the hourglass 
So baby if you wanna waste away the daylight 
I really don’t mind losing my mind again 

I really don’t mind, I really don’t mind 

Wanna take you to the east coast 
Wanna take another long way home 
And I wanna see you out at my shows 
I wanna see your face wherever I go 
In the morning, I’ll be hoping 
That you’re still there when I roll 
Baby can’t you see? 
I never want you to leave 

And no one’s going home in the dead of winter 

We can stay together for the rest of the night 
I really don’t mind, I really don’t mind 
If you didn’t get me I’ll be singing it twice 
I really don’t mind taking my time 
The moment’s gone too fast 
When you’re facing the hourglass 
So baby if you wanna waste away the daylight 
I really don’t mind losing my mind again 

I really don’t mind, I really don’t mind 

I really don’t mind losing my mind again

THE HAZE

Spent my time walking up and down twenty-two 
Went back to Boston, but I couldn’t find you 
I took it as fortune but I misunderstood 
So I’m leaving Boston, heading back to the woods 

Twenty years later, it feels like the fall 
But the leaves turned from green into nothing at all 

Now I’m breaking through my haze  
And through my days 
My sanity has gone the other way 
But you’ll see my face in your glory days 
The things I used to say and the games you used to play 

The rain washed stains 
The gravity starts pulling you away 
My pain refrains 
And I’m coming through the haze 

Now I’m running away from my place 
Last time you wasted my grace 
How could you hate me? I make everywhere your home 
You blame the government, but you locked the cage you’re stuck within 
You might be back again, but I’ll have changed 

I’m breaking through my haze  
And through my days 
My sanity has gone the other way 
But you’ll see my face in your glory days 
The things I used to say and the games you used to play 

The rain washed stains 
The gravity starts pulling you away 
My pain refrains 
And I’m coming through the haze 

Now I’m breaking through my haze  
And through my days 
My sanity has gone the other way 
But you’ll see my face in your glory days 
The things I used to say and the games you used to play 

The rain washed stains 
The gravity starts pulling you away 
My pain refrains 
And I’m coming through the haze 

The haze 
And I’m coming through the haze 
Coming through the haze

DROWNING

Sometimes I have to wonder what it would take to be set free 
Big dreams always surround me, left everything around me 

I ran away from nothing, hoping that I’d find something in me 
But something turned into nothing, and that’s all that I turned out to be 

And I feel like I could be drowning 
But I should be grounding myself 

And I feel like I could be drowning 

I know that season’s gonna change 
Too far to grab, to rearrange 
I’ve been tired, I’ve been weak 
I’ve been left in the street 
I’ve been high, I’ve been low 
I see patterns so slow 

I’ve been tired, I’ve been weak 
I’ve been left in the street 
I’ve been high, I’ve been low 
So low 

And I don’t feel like I’m drowning (I’m not drowning) no more 
Cause I can feel my heart beating (my heart beating) once more
