Snake River Canyon

So Gone
It’s that wake up early feeling
You try and can’t fall asleep
It’s the quiet of the room
It’s in the secrets that we keep
It’s the thousands of chances
I’ll have with my fears
And it’s the hundreds of roads
That are gonna lead me from here
And now I’m so gone
Baby I am so gone

It’s the first car on the backroad
And the crackle of the radio
It’s how we place our faith in people
That we just don’t know
It’s the way we like to worry
The way we like to change
And how we give our love to some
Who just can’t give us back the same
And now I’m so gone
Baby I am so gone

It’s the flowers that don’t say sorry
They just say I need you
It’s the rhythm of a heartbeat
And it’s the stillness of a room
We said things we never meant then
Things we meant the most
But mostly we always just found out ways to speak too soon
And now I’m so gone
Baby I am so gone
Calloused hands and calloused lips
From endless nights without your kiss

These days I sit at home alone
And think of things I miss
So go on bite the fruit baby
And sin before I do
When midnight finds these sunken eyes
You’re howlin’ at the moon
And now I’m so gone
Baby I am so gone

I’ll repossess my heart baby
And reassess my time
I would change a few things about myself
If I could throw it in rewind
But now I’m moving forward
Forward with the wind
Each breath that fills my lungs reminds me how to start again
Now I’m so gone
Baby I am so gone

I’m gone
I’m gone
Jesus Christ, forgive me of my sins
I’m gone
Yes I’m so gone
Baby I am so gone

 

Heat Lightnin’ Heat
The rivers runnin’ dry and my thirst is on the rise
Taste beyond my means and I’m aiming for the prize
And I wanna fill the spaces and the spaces in between
I wanna breathe in deep c’mon you got me heat lightnin’ heat

Lead me towards the light no not towards the door
Cause I wanna dream new dreams, yes I do,  that have never been dreamt before
And I wanna fill the spaces and the spaces in between
I wanna breathe in deep c’mon you got me heat lightnin’ heat
And I don’t wanna hear you say
I don’t wanna hear you say goodbye
And I don’t wanna hear you say
I don’t wanna hear you say goodbye
Lord goodbye, lord goodbye

In and out of time the horizon speaks
My heart is full of future and my spirit it comes alive
Heat lightnin’ heat

And I don’t wanna hear you say
I don’t wanna hear you say goodbye
And I don’t wanna hear you say
I don’t wanna hear you say goodbye
Lord goodbye, Lord goodbye

 

Moonlight Mile
I swim across the silver sea
They say you gotta dance a little if you wanna be free
So I do, yes I do

And we tried to keep it in
But it did no good cause our mouths let slip out
Exactly what we knew they would
Oh no, oh no

So go find out what love isn’t
So that you’ll always know what it is
Yes go find out what love isn’t
So that you’ll always know what it is

I know your heart it’s better than that
I’ll drive a moonlight mile to wherever you’re at
Yes I will, oh I will

Down the longest stretch of the darkest road
Lay it all on me honey, I will carry the load
I’ll carry it all, I’ll carry it all

So go find out what love isn’t
So that you’ll always know what it is
Yes go find out what love isn’t
So that you’ll always know what it is

And you’ll be there
When I take my last breath
If I had nothing else left in this world but your heart and that was it
I’d be happy with what I had

So go find out what love isn’t
So that you’ll always know what it is
Yes go find out what love isn’t
So that you’ll always know what it is

 

As You Please
Jesus Christ, a few things you could do
Just take care of my friends, let her know my love
And that’s all I’ll ask of you
And maybe hide the sun behind the clouds
She likes singing in the rain
She likes singing out loud
And all my life, what am I to her?
Just a daydream and one she don’t deserve

Oh no, I can’t let it get so bad
You know it can’t get so bad
You know I’ve tried
You know I’ve tried

So pile it high and fill my plate
And then I wonder why somedays  it all taste the same
You got a diamond heart this city bleeds with care
Its not in the buildings honey its how I know you need me here
So do what you want and take as you please
You got my voice to shaking honey it matched the rhythm of my knees

Oh no, I can’t let it get so bad
You know it can’t get so bad
You know I’ve tried
You know I’ve tried

 

Honest-Eyed Woman
Pretty brunette in a patterned dress
Me in a tie and a button up vest
I stroked her hair and made her smile
that’s how I know I was worth her while
And I could be there tonight you let me be there tonite and I will

Cause I thought I had wasted it all
On wildflowers and them late night calls
Thinkin’ that I had given her everything
Not realizing what was rarely seen
And I could be there tonite you let me be there tonite and I will

Cause there is another side of me
A side not won so easily
But you gave me your heart and wanted nothing in return
that’s how I know I had something you’d earned
And I could be there tonite you let me be there tonite and I will

I’m trying to accept what I can’t improve
I turned from you and walked out the room
But I heard your words and I held them tight
You don’t have to be so lonely tonight
I could be there tonite you let me be there tonite and I will

And life deals more with how you handle pain
Than how you feel on your brighter days
But I rolled my dice and I took my chance
On some honest eyes and a sweet romance
And I could be there tonite you let me be there tonite and I will

 

Weightless
55 around heres not 55 at all
Its  65 to 70 and its not getting caught
Its tearing through those hills into the morning fog
The high beams used to help
Now they’re no use at all

And the clock on the dash is still an hour behind
Reminding me just how bad I am with time
And timing never was my thing and I realize
That holding close is just letting go with a slow goodbye

But I still may have something for you yet
It may not be the love you need
But you can still have all of it
And be a thief and take whatever you can with your hands
Cause I’m weightless and free so carry me
Into the heart of your plans

Just like a fox in a prairie with an open sky
My nervous breath is trying its best to find a hole to hide
And I would trade in all your truths for just a single lie
If it could call upon my courage to carry me tonight

But I still may have something for you yet
It may not be the love you need
But you can still have all of it
And be a thief and take whatever you can with your hands
Cause I’m weightless and free so carry me
Into the heart of your plans

 

DLMG
Her Laughter it filled up most of the room
I figured anyone who could laugh that loud could cry that loud too
Curiosity got the best of me and I headed her way
With rolled up sleeves and apologies I should just act my age
But the band they stopped playing before we stopped dancing
And the silence made me realize that this rarely happens
And my friends, my friends are about an hour or so gone
Well I stuck around and held her close, I hate being alone

I said don’t let me go
Don’t let me go
Hold me close

And time it went by and time it went slow
And I used to pick her flowers from the side of the road
But kind gestures became few and emotions ran high
Until that autumn night proved just how loud she could cry
And whatever we had that night it killed it all
Cause that fight made us see things that we never saw
And my words would have meant more if I hadn’t used them yet
But I just mimicked the lines from the night that we met

And I said don’t let me go
Don’t let me go
Hold me close

 

Skeleton Tree
I’ve never felt so much of this brokenness
I never put so much of my high hopes in this
I’ve never felt so much pain without your kiss
No, I haven’t

I’ve never felt this wrong before and I swear it
Never felt this strong before and I mean it
I’ve never felt this strong before to turn around
And just ignore the meaning

And I’ll fly away from the skeleton tree
With my glory and the wind beneath my wings
Cause I’d rather fly away with the falcons
Than fall with the thousands of leaves

My arms are outstretched for you now can you see them
My eyes are fixed upon you can you feel them
Cause everytime I look away I feel I am led astray
Without you

Our hearts they beat as one now darling do you blame them?
Until the day we’re through and theres no changing it
Cause when I’m lost and in a gloom I know I can count on you
To love me and I’ll do the same

And I’ll fly away from the skeleton tree
With my glory and the wind beneath my wings
Cause I’d rather fly away with the falcons
Than fall with the thousands of leaves

 

Throw Me to the Wolves
I said throw me, throw me to the wolves
Cause even if it’s wrapped up
A gift is not enough
And time, I said time was all it took
It took so much away from the night and day
I didn’t know when to wake up

I let it dwindle down
Into the ground, I let it go
I let it go until nothing or no one was around
And I would put up a fight
But I think it’s gonna turn out alright
I wanna be,  wanna be so much more than myself tonight

And there was nothing
Nothing I could do
There’s problems that we can’t see
And there’s problems in plain view
I said love, I said love
Watch the love grow
Cause there’s love we hold close
And there’s love we don’t even know

I let it dwindle down
Into the ground, I let it go
I let it go until nothing or no one was around
And I would put up a fight
But I think it’s gonna turn out alright
I wanna be,  wanna be so much more than myself tonight

 

Corners
The waiting always gets me down
Like a mountain on my chest
Will you fill this emptiness
And give this heart a rest?
Cause you found me in the morning hours
In the corners of my house
Always looking to lay my head
You still won’t shake me down

Cause if I build my bed in Hell
You still won’t shake me down
And if I blaze an endless trail
You still won’t shake me down

The evening always slows ‘til it stills
Like a final soundless breath
Will you fill this emptiness
And forgive me of my debts?
Cause you found me in the morning hour
I was cornered in by doubts
Always looking for an easy lift
You still won’t shake me down

Cause if I build my bed in Hell
You still won’t shake me down
And if I blaze an endless trail
You still won’t shake me down

Cause you, you came to shake me down
You came to shake me down
I wasn’t afraid
Cause I, I’ll never be shook down
I’ll never be shook down
I will remain

I will always remain the same, Yes I will.
