Track Name: feelings of love
When I see you standing there with him

smiling and in love

I don’t know what to do with my eyes

Or my feelings of love


When, then, you’re standing here

Wrapped up in my arms to say goodbye

I don’t know what to do with my hands

or my breaking heart

or my love

Oh, my love
Track Name: side of the road
I was walking on the side of the road
you almost ran me over
I was holding up my thumb
asking for a ride into town

Adamantly you opposed me coming home
you almost ran me off the road

You always leave me on the side of the road
you always leave me there by myself, all alone

I deserve to come home too
Track Name: everything changes
Everything changes
I know it’s a cliché thing to say
But it’s only a cliché thing to say because it’s true
it is based in fact
And in truth, when I said I loved you
it was based in fact
But the truth is that facts are like everything
And everything changes
I know, it’s a cliché thing to say
Track Name: all these years
You said, “I’m leaving this weekend and I don’t know if I’ll be back again”
You said, “I’m leaving this weekend and I don’t know if I’ll be back again”

And I remembered the time we drove all night just to reach the state line
Then on we drove down winding roads in the dark
Your head on my shoulder, your hand on my lap
And when I asked you if you’d rearrange them, you just laughed
you said you wanted this forever
Oh, ain’t it strange just how forever always finds a way to change?

You said, “I’m leaving this weekend and I don’t know if I’ll be back again”
You said, “I’m leaving this weekend and I don’t know if I’ll be back again”

All these years have finally caught up to me
Sometimes I wish I could just be alone
But I know that it’s hard to go back to an empty home
What do you say if we meet half way or no way at all?
