Track Name: The Chase
THE CHASE

she told me "boy, you don't have to stay."
so i kindly took a leave
i packed my rags, left my bags
down to new orleans
it's a drunken day on a waterway bay
but a river ain't a stream
and now it's all or nothin babe
oh, you know what they say
it's the chase

well the ghost of you ain't nothin new
crawl into the bed
she takes it off, her skin so soft
and you're back inside my head
i'm wasting time
yeah, i'm wasting mine
but i haven't found a fit
and now it's all or nothin babe
oh, you know what they say

it's the chase
it's the chase
it's the chase

she's drunk alone in her hotel home
passed up by her life
and she drops her guard down so hard
she calls to make it right
there's a ringin phone
but no one's home
you can try another night
because it's all or nothin babe
oh, you know what they say

it's the chase
it's the chase
it's the chase

here we are, hearts apart
spun round by the mill
and we're twirling, babe, in an open grave
yet to get a fill
well here's the plan:
you had your chance
asking me to dance
and now it's all or nothin babe
oh, you know what they say
it's all or nothin babe
oh, you know what they say

it's the chase
it's the chase
it's the chase
Track Name: Hollywood
HOLLYWOOD

you packed your bags, you left your number
and you promised to come back home
but day to day the road gets longer
and the telephone line gets cold
and though it's hard for me to say it
i know that you've gotta stay in
hollywood

i played the fool, lay down beside you
thinking everything turns out fine
but now you're gone without a warning
chasing dreams that you had last night
and i could see the life you're leading
if i could get to sleep

hollywood is fading away, and i can't see you
hollywood is fading away
hollywood is fading away, and i can't see you
in the backseat, on the backseat, with the windows down
and you're screaming at the radio

there you are, your love behind you
and a future you paid to own
the sun goes down, and all around you
the stars are coming out, making their homes
but i don't need your night life, baby
i am too alive

hollywood is fading away, and i can't see you
hollywood is fading away
hollywood is fading away, and i can't see you
in the backseat, on the backbeat, with the windows down

and hidden in the sound is a promise
that you'll see me again
but i won't see you

hollywood is fading away
hollywood is fading away

hollywood is fading away (i don't mind if i can't see you)
hollywood is fading away (i don't mind if i can't see you)
hollywood is fading away (i don't mind if i can't see you)
hollywood is fading away (and i don't mind)

you packed your bags, you left your number
and you promised to come back home
Track Name: Dandelions
DANDELIONS

take the clouds for granted
while you form the shapes yourself
of a boy you haven't met yet
search the hills for hours
looking for his flowers
crush my dandelions
underneath your feet, that's fine
because

my love is yellow
and flies when it dies
it's a powder umbrella
for a weed set in flight
you could sow me forever
and reap nothin at all
or you could weave me in your hair...

climb the tallest tree
until your eyes take in the view
of his eyes passing right over you
and blame the constellations
as your day turns into night
but you can't turn this black into white
and that's fine, yeah, that's fine
because

my love is yellow
and it flies when it dies
it's a powder umbrella
for a weed set in flight
you could sow me forever
and reap nothin at all
or you could weave me in your hair...

and on and on and on and on...
Track Name: Horses
HORSES

you took me on down by the river
you bathed me, you washed me in the blood
forgiveness beyond the empty bottle
i drank you down, and you filled me up
then you sped me on the backs of your revival
you led me, you strung me by a thread
to the race line, all alone you claimed a victory
you said you'd won, you held your head

but you better get off
you better get off your horses
right now baby
you better get off
you better get off the way
you better get off
you better get off your horses
cause right now it's too late
to pull in the reins
to pull in the reins

you told me "this is only the beginning"
you held me, like a baby in your arms
but i know now how the truth can be deceiving
so i'm bowing out, i'm leaving town

but you better get off
you better get off your horses
right now baby
you better get off
you better get off the way
you better get off
you better get off your horses
cause right now it's too late
to pull in the reins

could you really hold your own and say
"do you believe?"
would you really pride your promise, babe
if i'd gone away?

you better get off
you better get off your horses
right now baby
you better get off
you better get off the way

you better get off
you better get off your horses
right now baby
you better get off
you better get off the way
you better get off
you better get off your horses
cause right now it's too late
to pull in the reins
to pull in the reins
Track Name: Ain't About
AIN'T ABOUT

a fallen angel in the snow tonight
promises of never returning
frozen fingers grip a jagged knife
hanging out the backs of us all
together in despair
our season

it ain't about the leaves buried after the fall
it ain't about the dirty sunset or the call
it ain't about the loving or the leaving
the giving or the getting at all, no
and it ain't about christmas
no it ain't about
you can bet your ass

gone are the days of paper snowflakes
hanging from the ceiling and walls
and all the innocence they imitate
brittle white, in symmetry
all together in despair
our season

it ain't about the leaves buried after the fall
it ain't about the dirty sunset or the call
it ain't about the loving or the leaving
the giving or the getting at all
and it ain't about christmas
no it ain't about

we could break our chains tonight
crawl out of graves dug deep
and we could laugh a lullaby
oh, it's softly singing us to sleep
together in despair
all together in repair now

it ain't about the leaves buried after the fall
it ain't about the dirty sunset or the call
it ain't about the loving or the leaving
the giving or the getting at all
and it ain't about
no it ain't about
Track Name: Hand In Hand
HAND IN HAND

lover, won't you come back home
there's a cup with your name
where it sat, there's a stain
and lover, don't you cry alone
there's this shoulder of mine
and there's dust where it dried
the last time

hand in hand
our love be damned
and hand in hand
we rise fallow
to fall from the gallows again
hand in hand

lover, when you call my name
won't you give it some time
cause you don't sound the same
and lover, when i fall apart
will you just hold me tight
cause it might be
the last time

hand in hand
our love be damned
and hand in hand
we rise from the fallow
to fall from the gallows again

we could fall back together again
but the pieces weren't meant to fit in
we could all lose ourselves in the end

hand in hand
our love be damned
and hand in hand
we rise from the fallow
to fall from the gallows
born in the shallows again
hand in hand
Track Name: In Time
IN TIME

in time
your wounds will close, child
the scars will fade
and all that you'll remember
is the memory
of a time
your heart will heal, child
when the pieces are all sand
they'll fill the bottom of the glass
will it last?
or will it pass?

in time
the world will cool, child
the tempers of our fathers
will be blood beneath the water
and in time
we will sing, child
aloud all of the melodies we dream
in any color that we deem
could it be
as it seems?

do you believe in love?
do you believe in time
that we will all come back together?
and we will hold the line?
do you believe in love?
do you believe inside
that we will all come back together
in time?

in time
we'll have our way, child
drain the well of water
spend the pennies on your dress
and in time
we'll run away, child
into the arms of everyone we left
when we were running from ourselves
would it help
if i yell?

do you believe in love?
do you believe in time
that we will all come back together?
that we will hold the line?
do you believe in love?
do you believe inside
that we will all come back together
in time?

there's a knock at the door baby,
is anybody listening?
then we'll empty our lungs baby,
as we sing out

do you believe in love?
do you believe in time
that we will all come back together?
that we will hold the line?
do you believe in love?
do you believe inside
that we will all come back together
in time?
we will all come back together
in time
Track Name: Baraboo
BARABOO

come beside me brother while i tell you a story
we never did a thing we didn't do the day before
we dance among the ashes of our fallen angels
and sleep beside the fire without the fear of burning away
oh yes we did

in old baraboo
where we relived our youth
in old baraboo
in baraboo

we smashed up all the clocks on the rocks by the lake that we found there
we swam across the devil's breast and back again, yeah
we named our willow humphrey and we climbed beneath his boughs
we tied a plank of wood to him
oh yes we did
oh and i'm going back

to old baraboo
where we relived our youth
in old baraboo
oh, in baraboo
it belongs to you and me
in old baraboo
in old baraboo

la la la la
oh and we're going back

to old baraboo
where we relived our youth
in old baraboo
oh, in baraboo
it belongs to you and me
in old baraboo
in old baraboo
in baraboo
Track Name: I Don't Mind
I DONT MIND

if i had a million dollars
tell you what i'd buy
a million cups of coffee
tip the waitress as she walks on by
tell a million stories
embellished i admit
but there's no damage in the details
it's the ignorance we sip
in all its bliss
and all this cold
has chilled me to the bone
but i'd rather bundle up
than have to face that shit alone

i don't mind
livin in a bubble baby
long as i got you
there ain't nothin we can't do
i don't mind
livin in a bubble baby
knowin we got nothin
and it's just enough to get us through

well i've met a lot of people
and i've heard a lot of lies
about promised lands
and perfect hands
and livin for the night
but the sun goes down about anywhere
and i'm happy in the dark
in the rain out on the shoulder
in an old havana car

i don't mind
livin in a bubble baby
long as i got you
there ain't nothin we can't do
i don't mind
livin in a bubble baby
knowin we got nothin
and it's just enough to get us through

we could open wide
the skin upon our eyes
as we begin to focus baby
and we could learn to find
a love that lies inside

i don't mind
livin in a bubble baby
long as i got you
there ain't nothin we can't do
i don't mind
livin in a bubble baby
knowin we got nothin
and it's just enough to get us through
Track Name: Seeds
SEEDS

before i found out you had poison in your teeth
i was the charmer, you were dancing to the beat
that i would play
dizzying array
before you took for granted every word i wrote
i payed you for a visit, grabbed you by the coat
we stumbled down
evening on the ground
and they were telling me

don't plant your seeds so close together
they will all die off in stormy weather
if you plant your seeds so close together
they will drown
you gotta plant em in the sound

before i found a reason to up and leave for good
i spent the growing season
wasted where i wouldn't be remembered
then i remembered
that they were telling me

don't plant your seeds so close together
they will all die off in stormy weather
if you plant your seeds so close together
they will drown
and they were tellin me
don't plant your seeds so close together
they will all burn up in fiery weather
when the lightning strikes and it all comes crashing
to the ground
you gotta plant em in the sound
