Track Name: Obliged
Obliged

You were right
I was wrong
You found your way
Into the song

Wake up in the morning I’ll be gone
The road was meant for travelling on
Forward is the best way to rewind
Much obliged for wasting all my time

The tide has turned
Inside of you
Now we both know
What we should do

Wake up in the morning I’ll be gone
The road was meant for travelling on
Forward is the best way to rewind
Much obliged for wasting all my time
Track Name: Song for Julia
Song for Julia

I went down to Memphis
Because I thought I should
I called you too late last night
Because I thought I should

Stay with me a little while
Tell your lies to me
Make me feel like someone new
Help me to believe

You were walking
When I saw you the first time
Now you're talking about getting out
And that sounds alright to me

Let's just hope in a little while
Something comes our way
Bad luck has to sleep sometime
That's what you used to say

You were walking
When I saw you the first time
Now you're talking about getting out
And that sounds alright to me
Track Name: The Same Eyes
The Same Eyes

I know you said it's true
But i don't know what to do
When I'm staring straight at you
And you're far away

You said you needed time
So feed me another line
While I try to make you see
The other way

You don't know do you
Deep inside I know it's true

Why don't we both agree
That there's places we should be
That we just don't need to see
Through the same eyes

You might think this is rare
But no one said it was fair
Sometimes the thicker air
Makes it hard to breath

You don't know do you
Deep inside I know it's true
Track Name: I Will Be Your Man
I Will Be Your Man

I've been waiting all night for something
To turn out good

You’ve been trying your best to hold it together
Cause you feel that you should

Let's realize somethings are worth a shot
Let's both agree to piece this together
Just to see what we've got

But if you go
I would understand
But if you stay
Then I will be your man

We've been sipping too much
From the same broken cup

We've been looking in boxes
That we swore we'd keep shut

There's a silence at night
That will calm your sleeping mind
In the darkness you'll be handed answers
You thought we'd never find

But if you go
I would understand
But if you stay
Then I will be your man
Track Name: So Tired So Lonely
So Tired/So Lonely

Picture cards are hard to send
When they're stuck inside
Your mind
All the time

I feel something creeping in
A cold and darkened fog
And it's clouding the way
I need to go

But I am oh so tired again
And I am oh so lonely again

It been so long since I've been here
Don't know why I left
Sometimes
It's better not to leave

Lord just let me grow old here
I'm through with chasing time
i'm ready for some sleep
Inside my bones

But I am oh so tired again
And I am oh so lonely again
Track Name: Places We Should Go
All the Places We Should Go

Think of all the things you never say
Think of all the places we could lay
Think of all the things we never keep
Think of walking through this world
Without me

Think of all the places we should go
Pick me up I think we're late for the show
I don't want to know what you don't know
Let the streetlights guide us where to go

Oh
You tried your best
But there's nothing
Quite like this

Careless love will get you every time
'No. Regret' are two hard words to rhyme
Felt the shaky weight upon the call
Who am I to scream out to you all

Oh
You tried your best
But there's nothing
Quite like this
Track Name: Every Turn
Every Turn

I could not see, feel or taste it
Wasted the day
Faded away

Then your voice came and just changed it
Broke silent tones
Crackling phones

Every turn

Sometimes these things creep in my mind
Trying my best
To find some rest

Like a bad dream I can't shake it
Your memory
Tattooed on me

Every turn

Tell me
This will be alright

Stay with me
Won't you tonight
Track Name: People are Strange
People are Strange

People are strange
That's nothing new
I miss you so
That's nothing new

I was walking again tonight in the dark
Trying to see what I might want
Is life supposed to feel
So mixed up, so sad and so strange

I feel a change
Inside of you
I miss you so
That's nothing new

I was talking again tonight in the dark
Searching for peace in all that I've done
Is life supposed to be
So mixed up, so sad and so strange

Why is there so much doubt
Inside of me trying to creep out
Why can't I feel the way
I feel when you’re here by my side

People are strange
That's nothing new
I miss you so
That's nothing new
