Track Name: Git Along
Written by Jay Cobb Anderson

sitting at the station, on a bright summers day
watching all the people as they're sitting in the shade
waiting for the Greyhound, to take them away
but I only got five dollars so I guess I'm a gonna stay

I ain't got no problem just a being where I'm at
well I guess I could be somewhere else, but I don't care about that
so leave me where I'm sitting, or come and join the song
‘cause no matter what my friends I'm still gonna git along
oh Lord I'm still gonna git along

them birds are singing in the trees and the sky is clear and hot
the wind keeps on blowin up big black clouds of exhaust
and I can't think of a better day just to be right where I am
well I'm satisfied with whichever way the cards are gonna land

I ain't got no one to want me, I ain't got no place to go
I don't need no one to validate the things I think I know
I'm ‘a sit here grinning let that sun come burn my skin
I don't give a damn about the odds ‘cause I know I'm a bound to win
Track Name: Whippoorwill
Written by Mimi Naja

lie awake in the morning light
I couldn’t sleep through the easy night
it's hard to rest from a worried mind
imagining what I'd like to find

your voice is ringing in my ears
I haven't heard for three long years
‘cause you flew on down to Chapel Hill
now I hear your call
through the whippoorwill

could it be you trying to say to me?
you're still with me baby, I'm still here
had to fly but don't wonder why
‘cause all things due to you, they
they come in time

we used to sing those Broadway tunes
and Carole King, and Johnny and June
we would stoke a little fire and curl on up, baby
just the two of us

now I don’t know why I turned away
‘cause now I look back to the good ol' days
but a part of you is with me still
‘cause I hear your call,
through the whippoorwill

and other birds might flock to me
with all their songs and melodies
I love them all, I do, it's true
but when I hear that call
I know it's you
Track Name: Blue Light
Written by Kellen Asebroek

oh baby where you going, and could you use a ride?
I was never much for knowing, if I should pull to the side
roll on down the window, turn on down the song
I'm on this road too you know, maybe we could get along
you are a stranger, I am caught off guard
if we are but strangers, then why's passing you by so hard?

I think it's the blue light, in your eyes, drive me crazy, that's alright
‘cause it may save me, from losing my mind, over the baby that I left behind

I am flying my way, you are flying yours
lost on the same ol’ highway, maybe I'll open up my doors
welcome in a stranger to share the darkened road
I have welcomed danger, but something tells me you're someone that I gotta know

I think it's the blue light, in your eyes, drive me crazy, that's alright
‘cause it may save me, from losing my mind, over the baby that I left behind
oh yeah, I think it's the blue light, in your eyes, drive me crazy, that's alright
‘cause it may save me, from losing my mind, over the baby that I left behind
that I left behind
Track Name: Mountain Annie
Written by Jay Cobb Anderson

well I went down to the train yard looking to forget you
and I laid my head down on the rail
well these tracks they must run near you, ‘cause I swear that I could hear you, singing
and I wish I couldn't say, since you been away
well I don't feel like I know myself
yes and when I get to thinkin 'bout it, it just turns to drinkin 'bout it, over and over again

oh why, oh why, do I let myself cry, over you?
when I call out your name, you don't do the same, now do you
get out of my head, give me back my heart Mountain Annie

now in the flicker of a candle’s flame, smoke that rises spells your name
and then it disappears
and my hearts grown tired of beatin, and my lips are tired of speakin, so I won't
and the sky must know, the way that these things go because it's raining like it's never gonna stop
and if this flood comes running through, Lord I hope I can float away from you and break these chains
Track Name: The Wanter
Written by Mimi Naja

well, this is just how far I can make it
'fore I take your heart and finally break it
yeah, this role is new to me
I'm used to being the wanter, not the wanted

how can I handle your desire
get a bucket o’ water and throw it on the fire
gonna put it out and let it be
cuz I'm the wanter, you really don't want me

I'm in it for the fishing, I'm not in it for the catch
it's something that I haven't quite reconciled yet
I understand that you'd give anything
but I'm a keep running, I'm a keep running from a wedding ring
yeah I'm a keep running, I'm a keep running from a wedding ring

these days, I am a lazy mess
I sit around, still don't take no rest
it ain't no way for a lover to be
I'm the wanter, you really don't want me

you're watching me, I'm watching them
whatever we had, I'm making it look grim
so go find something better than me
cuz I'm the wanter, you really don't want me
Track Name: Broken Hearted
Written by Jay Cobb Anderson

hangin out all night with them goodtime friends of mine
drinking whatever will get me drunk tryin to get you off my mind
but nothing I have is strong enough, nothing ever gets to me
and everything around just brings back your memory

where are you tonight my dear?
do you think of me just like I dream of you?
is there someone else who's touch has pulled you towards them?
is there nothing I could ever say or do?
you’re just as real as dreams are to me now
just as right as wrong can feel, half of the time
just as quickly as the seasons turn, surely as the fire burns out
we are born to be the broken hearted

soon you will forget me, as we grow apart
you will find another and another ending starts
but one day you will wonder, where our love went wrong
and I'll wonder if you hear me when I'm singing out this song
Track Name: Come On, Get In
Written by Kellen Asebroek

I was born beneath the ocean, not too long ago
I didn't learn how to walk until I knew how to swim
at least how to stay afloat
I rolled and I tumbled, down across the bottom of the sea
I reached and I struggled for air but when I let go
the air came to me

can't fight that kinda force now can ya baby?
'cause you won't ever win
you can move like that water if you want to
so come on and get in

I forgot about the ocean, oh how could I let that be?
everything is wild in the eyes of a child
but it wasn't for me
I went back to that shoreline, I wept and was swept up in the tide
I reached and I struggled for words, but then I knew
that that child was right
Track Name: Just One of Them Nights
Written by Jay Cobb Anderson

it's just one of them nights when you look at yourself and you wonder how the time has gone
and ya think of the past and them girls that you loved, and you wonder how it ever went wrong
and there ain't no candles burnin, and you’re buzzin like an old street light, I’m a having a time
it's just one of them nights

it’s just one of them nights when she crosses your mind, and ya wonder how much she's changed
last time I heard anything about you, well I heard that ya got engaged
I'm happy for you darlin and I know that I'll be fine, I'm just having a time
it’s just one of them nights

it's just one of them nights when your tired as hell, but ya stay up drinkin instead
and ya can't find no conclusions to all the stories that ya start in your head
and ya know you’re on top of the world, ya just got a dark turn of mind, you’re a having a time
it's just one of them nights

it's just one of them times you got nothin to say, but ya can't seem to keep ya mouth shut
so you wash all your words in whiskey, and then ya dry em off with cigarette butts
and ya pray to god you’re dreaming and that you'll wake up in a different life, you’re just having a time
it’s just one of them nights

it's just one of them nights that you’re lost in ya mind and ya realize you’re gettin older
and ya feel like there's no shelter, to guard ya from the freezing cold
and you know that you'll be better, if you can feel that morning shine
you’re just having a time, it's just one of them nights,
yeah you’re having a time, it's just one of them nights
Track Name: Boil Over
Written by Kellen Asebroek

We was about to boil over the top
We was pushin' and pullin' with no signs of stopping.
Our hearts were on fire, the tension was talking
My pulse was on a bender, 'til reason came a-knockin', saying:

"What's goin on? Why are you so mad?
That attitude of yours might break everything you have.
Are you motivated by fear instead of love?
Will you sink to the bottom, or rise up above?
What's goin on? Why are you so mad?"
That anger was making me ugly.

Up inside your head it's like highway that winds
Like the sun when the sky is clear, its when that mind can shine
But when it's cloudy yeah there's trouble up ahead
Your thoughts become a traffic jam of things you've never said, saying':

"What's goin on, buddy, is it getting bad?
Are all of them little things driving you mad?
Can you travel freely on the freeway in your mind?
Or are you caught up in that traffic? are ya bottled up inside?
What's goin on, why are you so mad?"
That anger is making you ugly.

Our hearts were on fire, then tension was talkin'
My pulse was on a bender 'til reason came a knocking'

What's goin on my friend, let us not pretend
Talk to me sister, I've got an ear to lend
Are you motivated by fear instead of love
Will you sink to the bottom, or rise up above?

Rise up above
Cause that anger is makin' you ugly.
Track Name: Portland Bound
Written by Jay Cobb Anderson

black ice on the highway won't you slide me right back home
I been climbin' through the mountains, I been cutting through the snow
well I'm on my way to Stumptown where I got a lot of friends
where your drinks are never dry, where the sidewalks always wet, so

take me back where I won't get pushed around
where all the girls are beautiful, and everyone is down
it's a pretty little city, it's a damn dirty town
hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah
we're Portland bound

now I've been out a ramblin teaching lessons I been learnin
in the deserts and the canyons, with the smell of diesel burnin
not everyone I meet is always kind and understandin
so I'll spit into the wind, grab the wheel until we've landed

right back there where I won't get pushed around
where all the girls are beautiful, and everyone is down
it's a pretty little city, it's a damn dirty town
hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah
we're Portland bound

now I've rode a lot of roads, and seen a great and many places
but I long to be right back among the strange and rain stained faces
where living free and easy is the general consensus
and ya still can raise a smile from all the hip and the pretentious
Track Name: Gotta Get Back Home
Written by Mimi Naja

if I could get right, right back to you
honey, I would fly
honey, I would fly
then again, why would I right where I am?
just wanna bring you by
wish I could bring you by

the sun beats down gracefully, and the music's on fire
yeah, the music's on fire
even if it takes all night for me to come around
I will never tire
I will never tire
gotta get back home, gotta get back home
gotta get back home, gotta get back home

got myself a Stetson, shades to cover these eyes
try to move in stride
try to move in stride
one more night to kick back on the mountainside
‘cause in the morning I drive
yeah in the morning I drive

gotta get back home....
