trying not to be too paranoid these days but that's harder than it seems it's nothing anyone says it's nothing anyone does just the way i see things and i could stay up all night and listen to records and i might not feel any worse and i might not feel better don't know why these words come out don't know why some don't trying not to wonder if i left the stove on or if i locked the door what will i say to the people i meet will i turn off the lights 'fore i go to sleep and did i lock the door and i could stay up all night but it would still slip away the sun may not shine but it's still another day maybe that's what keeps me going maybe that's what keeps me going

she says she'll take me home but she knows i haven't been drinking she says there's nothing wrong but so much happens in the time you spend blinking and there's just one light that's on tonight and i let it shine, but i pull the shades closed tight there's just one light that's on tonight she says "i've never been here before it's the wrong side of town and these bands all sound the same" she says "there's nothing wrong or at least no one left you can find to blame" and she's the only light that shines tonight and she may try to put it out, but she's burning bright she's the only light that shines tonight she says she hates the desert rain but it looks just like she must feel this evening she says there's nothing wrong that won't be allright when i start leaving there's just one light that's on tonight and it may lead me home, or get me in a fight there's just one light that's on tonight

i'll wait for you where the leaves are falling the dogs are barking and the band is playing what could be our song i'll stay with you where the clouds are drifting the trains are rolling and the people walk by like they do in cities in movies and when the sunlight comes across it's blinding but beautiful and these words confuse the meaning and when it gets too dark to see it's blinding but beautiful and there's a little love in everything i'll be with you when the bridges are burning the buildings are shaking and we are creating what would be our love i'll stay with you when the time is coming the streets are folding and the people wonder why we smile and where our smiles belong

woke this morning, lost an hour, you were calling me you'd fallen down in some rocks you were ok, but you wanted to share the story and see how i was and i wish you weren't so far away from me right now and i wish we could do whatever we wanted to and i wish i was there to kiss your hurt knees maybe you shouldn't try to race your sister down the street or maybe you could practice somewhere softer we could run 'round in the grass, there'd be obstacles kids and pets and picnics and i wish we were at the park right now even though it's dark, we could still have fun and i would be there to kiss your hurt knees went all 'round the house this morning turning the clocks forward i'm sure i missed one maybe it's like it's one less hour we'll be apart or maybe i'm just sentimental and i wish you weren't so far away from me right now and i wish we could do whatever we wanted to and i wish i could be there to kiss your hurt knees
5.
the lights have gone out before we thought they would and our friends have left us where we once stood together, through dark nights and trials, it's true we must face our fates alone the summer it burns and the winter it freezes in our hands we hold everything we believe in we survive, we have everything we need and there's nowhere left to go the hope is the past, it's not ours to own the ghosts of our past, in shackles they moan forever, in darkness, broken-hearted, true they must face their fates alone scavengers pick the bones of the world the righteous reduced to beggars and cursed and never, in trial or verse, will they learn we must face our fates alone
6.
i stop for quail when they run across the street even though they don't look both ways they run across, one two three they run across, one two three one two three i stop for coyotes when they stand in the street and just say hey, leave those quail alone don't eat that quail, no no no don't eat that quail, no no no no no no i stop for dogs when they try to bite my car i just let them bite it they're little dogs, bark bark bark they're little dogs, bark bark bark bark bark bark i stop for quail when they run across the street and they always come in threes they run across, one two three they run across , one two three one two three
7.
maybe next fall we'll see the colors changing like the season it's meant to be maybe we'll wear our scarves and coats a little longer walking underneath leaves falling from the trees they're falling down, in golds and reds and browns they're falling down so we pick out places on a map and try to make it happen these cities, these towns seem so far away it's nice to feel at home, it's better to know you're there i just want to be somewhere i know i want to stay maybe this year we'll find our home someplace we've never seen maybe we'll wear our scarves and coats a little longer walking underneath leaves falling from the trees they're falling down, in golds and reds and browns they're falling down
8.
don't try to say we've been through this all before nothing really changes except for the things that refuse to change and i will be standing, so i can see everything and maybe believing, believing everything i see we can hold our hands out waiting for someone to help or take this knowledge and take care of ourselves i will be looking, so i'm sure not to miss a thing maybe believing some of the things they tell me all of these faces, they look the same to me suits, ties, or dresses, the script might change but not the meaning and i will be watching, and listening to everything and maybe believing some of the things that i see
9.
i will dig this hole and someday maybe plant a tree the dogs will try to get the birds and there'll be plenty of shade for you and me i will try to help this tree stand till it can stand on its own its branches will move and its leaves will shake but it won't fall no matter how hard the wind is blowin' and the sun will rise on the other side of today and the sun will set on this side of tomorrow and the moon will glow with just enough light for you and the stars will draw their heroes and monsters you could dig this hole and someday maybe plant a tree their branches may meet in the middle and there'll be plenty of room for a blanket and you and me and your dreams will carry you through the storm and your dreams will wake you before the morning and your toes will hold you upright to the wind and your fingers will draw the only map you'll need
10.
feels like these days are just passing me by i try to drag them out, but they keep on going oh i would write a letter, but i lost the address the universe has no regard for our troubles or our happiness seems like these people are just passing by i try to stop and smile, but i just can't do it i wonder if they don't see me, or if they exist something about contact, i need to resist i'm driving home, trying hard to focus on the road the sun is shining behind the hills, i know it's bound to explode feels like these fears are just passing by it's too early to tell, but i may be allright ink will fill these pages from dreams i don't remember thoughts will sneak so quietly, and fade with the embers
11.
oh new mexico, it's good to be back home again we saw a lot of trash, raced a couple trains coming in oh new mexico, it's good to be back home again i missed these mountains and these places i haven't been in awhile and my hometown may be growing but it never really changes much and this will always be the place where i grew up and the place i fell in love
12.
wish i could just sing a song and have a roof over my head put a roof over our heads wish that you could sing along and hear everything i said you'd hear everything i said wish i could just tap my toes and we'd have a place to sleep any place to sleep wish that you could bang your drum and we'd have everything we need we'd have everything we need what a way to make a living wish i could just play my song and have a roof over my head put a roof over our heads wish that you could sing along and say everything i said you'd say everything i said i'd like to like what i do all day feel like nothing has to change feel like nothing should change i'd like to love what i do all day and words i'd rearrange these words i'd rearrange
13.
they might chase us down an alley they might use the heartbreak machine they might tie us to a railroad bridge but their secret weapons are no match for us they might throw us in a river but they don't know you can swim you would help me stay afloat and they would never see us they would never see us they might run us off the road but they don't know how i can drive the car wouldn't even roll and they'd look for us they'd only see our dust
14.
oh i could stand in the middle of a busy road and let the cars go around me i could close my eyes and drive through stop signs let everyone else look out for me oh i like to walk along the railroad tracks if i tried i couldn't get lost oh i like to watch the trains go rushing by but i never have the nerve to get on don't like to try anything dangerous and i don't like to do anything stupid but i don't like to try anything new and i'm not sure i know the difference oh i could sing and dance out on the sidewalk the police they might arrest me or i could sing really loud out the window and hope that someone will hear me
15.
in the event of an outbreak of the undead the first thing i'd do is find a weapon i'm not eager to smash anyone's head but you have to be prepared to do some things you don't want to do like ride a bike or steal some shoes you'll be a hero if you survive if not, just hope you're not eaten alive if i had a camera i would keep rolling but i'd be sure to watch all sides it'd be nice to document for future generations but you shouldn't waste your energy on getting the right shot instead of the head shot on loading the film instead of the gun you'll be a hero if you survive if not, just hope you're not eaten alive and i would hope none of my family would become zombies and i know my friends would outsmart the undead and simon pegg wouldn't get bitten and jason bateman would be too tough for them and nick frost would break their heads and bob dylan would shoot 'em all down it's not the time for peace, it's time to survive and if not, just hope you're not eaten alive
16.
oh how i wish i could be the one you wanted to see everyday, but I'm not, i'm just some random guy you, you don't even know me oh how i wish i could be everything you want out of me everything, but i can't, i'm just some random guy you, you don't even know me i could pretend, but i know you're leaving it's just a matter of, it doesn't matter so i went to the movies, tried to pick the one you wanted to see i was wrong, i was stuck with a bad romantic comedy and you, you don't even know me so i went to a show, tried to pick the band you wanted to see i was wrong, ringing ears from a heavy metal band and you, you don't even know me i could pretend, but i know your tea cup is empty it's just a matter of, it doesn't matter
17.
i tried and tried to write a brand new love song but my pen said you're gonna scare this girl away i tried and tried to hide it in some other lines but it found its way out, and there's still a lot left to say oh, i'd like to see you in the morning, and sometime in the evening and maybe sometime in between i thought and thought about everything we would do and where we would end up if we got together i thought and thought and studied these maps and where all those lines go, this car could take us anywhere and i might miss the sun in the morning, and you might in the evening but we have all the time in between i tried and tried to play a brand new love song but i had to sing real quiet so i would learn it the right way i tried and tried to save it for some other time but it found its way out, and there's still a lot to say that i think of you in the morning, think of you in the evening and all the time in between
18.
darling won't you be my dream that becomes truth i slept right through the eclipsed moon because i was dreaming of you i was snoring in my bed, i was drooling on my pillow i dreamed that i woke up and wrote you a love note i didn't have paper so i carved it in a tree but it was home to a spotted owl and the government fined me we were at the movies, i don't know what it was but it must've been my favorite, i'm sure it was my favorite it will be my favorite as soon as i remember it we were going to the beach, driving in a car we'd seen at a stop sign, it was blue and classic with fancy taillights i should know the name, as a man i should know the name but i don't understand cars or sports or anything tough though i like to think i'm tough i was snoring in my bed, i was drooling on my pillow and i dreamed that i woke up and you were there and you were there
19.
people seem worried when it looks like it might rain but they're not from the desert, they don't know how great it is you can't see the stars shine like diamonds in the sky and i don't like diamonds, like to trace the constellations and i think the other night i saw you and me the stars faded in the bright lights and left me wondering planes go their separate ways and drag the night across the sky their little lights let us know that they're not ufos never see the wings, just keep the faith that they're allright and i wave a little wave to let them know we're still here and i think the other night i saw you and me we were waving, heading east, and it left me wondering people seem nervous, guess i can't really blame them but when there's nothing you can do, it's no use to worry when you can't see the stars shine way up in the sky take a little drive until they're the only lights you can see and i'm pretty sure the other night i saw you and me the stars shined through the bright lights, it was all we could see
20.
the cracks in the road won’t follow you the bumps go down and not back up again everything goes by as fast as you want it there’s nothing to see, half-finished buildings (at least the birds have a place to nest) some people will sit and wait for mistakes then take them and use them as i-told-you-so’s do what you want or do what you’re told but don’t pretend it’s harder than that (at least we all have a place to be ourselves) the stories we'll tell have already happened the people and places sometimes are different you can fill your life with whatever you want but don’t expect us all to do the same
21.
wake up every morning believing the world is going to end though we all know damn well it already happened long before we were born, this land reduced to dust now we all live by our weapons, and we do what we must my mother and my father, they raised me the best they could there's nothing left to fight for but the right to travel on i would hold my head high, but some marauder would chop it off so i stay low and i take the first shot i turn my ear from every desperate cry in the wastes i would be a pirate's meal, and they'd be nothing more than bait i was taught to read and write, these words make no sense to me i take what i can use, the books i burn for heat my mother and my father, they raised me the best they could there's nothing left to die for but the fight to travel on i would hold my head high, but some marauder would chop it off so i stay low and i take the first shot there's no salvation in a bottle of moonshine there's not a man alive who wouldn't rob the blind i would hold my head high, but that's a good way to get caught so i stay low, and i take the first shot
22.
i never worry about deep sea monsters though i used to be afraid of sharks in the swimming pool if i’m ever lost at sea, i’d never make it down that far but any big shadow sends me off in a panic there’s nothing quite like irrational fear to help you through an otherwise normal day i never worry about airplanes crashing though i do worry about them landing on my car if that ever happens, i’d never remember my reaction plan these planes fly so low and send me off in a panic i never worry about the great apocalypse but i do try to make a plan for afterward if that ever happens i’ll try to keep my guitar or something to keep me from going off in panic
23.
if i had learned to play piano when i was ten years old i’d be pretty good by now, i’d sit down and play you a song i’d play you a song if i had kept up with horseback riding lessons i’d be pretty good by now, i’d saddle up and take you along i’d take you along and this road is long but you are by my side and there's nothing that we need that we can't find together this road is long but i am by your side and sometimes things go wrong, but we come out ok well, i have tried to write my thoughts since I can remember should be pretty good by now, i sit down and hope the words come out i hope the words come out
24.
if i could do nothing i would, but that's not what this is about i need to say something real, and i can only shout so loud if i could measure my success, i'm sure there'd be some argument all of these possibilities are screaming at me i can stand still, if it's at the wrong place it will drive me crazy if i can do something i should, maybe that's what this is about i need something i can feel, something i can't do without if i could measure my regrets, i'm sure there'd be some argument if i hold these thoughts too long, i'm afraid of what they'll do feel there's action to be taken, need to find out if it's true if i could measure my success, i'm sure there'd be some argument
25.
if i had a paintbrush, i wouldn't know where to start i could draw lines and curves, they would meet or maybe not if i walk for miles, will i end up in the same place will it be somewhere new, i'll raise my flag and stake my claim if i had a trucker's atlas, i wouldn't know where to start i could draw lines in pencil, to these places i'd like to see if i walk for miles will i end up somewhere new will i wake, lost and lonely, looking for the friends who knew me we could be somewhere, we could go anywhere we want we could go anywhere, we could go anywhere you want
26.
we drove through the lighting storm on an old two-lane highway it was quite a thing to see, and maybe kinda scary but i know we’ll be alright because we can still see the road through the headlights and the water won’t rise, though i’m sure it does sometimes we drove through a desert snow, in the town where we had lived it had been some time since we’d seen anything like it but the ice it melts beneath our tires and the bigger cars they cut our path and the snow won’t stay long, though i’m sure it does sometimes when we held our hands out it was too dark to see but i knew you were there, and i knew you would find me and the lights they flicker sometimes, light up the sky and everything around it
27.
may be a little late for a birthday song but we can save it and sing it next year may be a little late for a birthday song but we can save it and sing it every year (so here we go) happy birthday, happy birthday it's a great day, and everyday should be so wonderful
28.
walk with me a little while, we will feel the wind blow our hair around and our feet will push the ground in the direction we want it to go stay with me a little while, we will feel the air at least it's fresh and new it's not that clean but it will do oh we'll breath easier, yes, you told me so if there's an answer hidden here then you will be searching for a long, long time and there's a life that's waiting to be found but you know i'd never leave you behind i've been here a little while, and i have felt the wind come from down the mountain twist and turn and back again in my direction as if it might know stay with me a little while, we will watch the sky fade from black to blue the day is here, we are too and we'll breathe easy, yes, you told me so there's an answer hidden here and we've been searching for a long, long time and there's a life that's waiting to be found but you know i'd never leave you behind
29.
i stretched my arms as high as they could reach there were things on the top i wanted but couldn’t see now i’m not so determined to build a ladder to climb there is plenty left here on the surface for me to find i’ll take a walk, leave my house one of these days and i’ll learn to be comfortable just where i am i’ll learn to be comfortable just where i am
30.
it's kinda sad to be leaving but it will be nice to be gone for a little while it's kinda different to be the one who is going somewhere new for a little while the harvest moon was full and bright but not quite as it could've been from somewhere else the air it feels oh so much cleaner this time of year, but i know it's psychological and what will change when i'm gone and what will i do when i get home will everything be the same can i finally be the one who's changed it's kinda nice to believe and to be believed in it’s something real it's kinda nice to be leaving and going somewhere new for a little while
31.
let's go on down this road let's see these places we've never been i'd like to share this adventure with you i'd like to look up at this new world with you let's drive this highway after dark let's drive with the stars all around us i'd like to share this adventure with you i'd like to look up at this shining sky with you let's go on down this road let's see what we can find along the way i'd like to share this adventure with you i'd like to look around this new world with you
32.
33.
i don't mind being alone right now it gives me time to think about what i might say or what i should say, what i will say i don't mind uncertainty right now there are so many choices and they are all ours they are ours, they are ours and i could walk this street again, but with you so many times until we know every crack, and the name of every building
34.
let's not set our alarms and we will get all the sleep we need we won't get in trouble, we'll be so rested, so refreshed we will cheer up everyone we see even if our phones ring, or we can hear the knock knock knocking we will be dreaming, warm beneath our blanket they'll just have to call again or come back later let's keep our shades drawn and we will let the sun in later it will be okay without us, and we'll be so rested, so refreshed we'll catch up with everything later
35.
well we would make really good friends but that's all we'd ever be, and that's ok with me i can always use a friend we would make really good friends and that's fine, that's what i'd like to be you can always use a friend and i can't be romantically here for you but if you want some pizza i'll pick it up and deliver, too and i can't let you stand this close to me but if you'd like we can go out and i'll buy you some coffee well we could be really good pals we'd go uptown and pal around, if that's ok with you i can always use a pal we could make really good pals and that's fine, as long as it's fine with you, too you can always use a pal and i can't be romantically here for you but if you need me to babysit, that's something i might do and i can't let you stay up all night texting me but if you'd like we can go out and i will be your dd well we would make really good friends but that's all we'd ever be, if that's ok with you i can always use a friend we would make really good friends and that's fine, if that's what you'd like to do you can always use a friend and i can be a really good friend to you but if you call me crying, i can only bring the tissue and you can be a really good friend of mine you just have to understand that i have to draw the line
36.
i was waiting for you as the train came rolling by and people were strolling by, like they had nothing else to do i was waiting for you, the express train was screaming by and people might scream and cry, but they still have to work for their food should we have to say we're sorry or write apologies in our rhetoric should we say winners lose and losers win and let that be the end of it i've been traveling lately, wondering where i'd like to be somewhere that's really green, and the seasons come and go in fours i've been traveling lately, looking for something new to see a home for you and me, a place we can call ours should i get a government job and live out my days overpaid and lazy would you say we all get what we're worth and laissez faire is crazy i would write you, mr. or mrs. senator, but that would justify your intentions and false virtue i'll pay your salary till you're in your grave and even then i'll buy your magnificent statue oh these trains tracks were built to go straight to your house, into your pocket and it's nice to ride the rails but i shouldn't have to pay so much for it, twice
37.
i like to travel with you driving or flying or riding the train i like to wander with you looking in bookshops, trying new lunch spots there's nowhere i wouldn't go as long as you wanted to go too i like to be at home with you talking or eating or watching movies i like to do nothing with you some people keep so busy they miss all the beautiful things
38.
we rode the train across some states and caught glimpses of the cities big enough to spend our lives exploring big enough to get lost in in between the trees raced by and the water shined and traced the sky and we saw broken buildings and graffiti and we saw falling leaves these people build their homes make them out of anything they can find these people build their homes make them anywhere they can find we stood in places older than anyone almost as old as our country some enough to keep a family warm some enough to get lost in these people built their homes made them out of anything they could find these people built their homes made them anywhere they could find
39.
maybe it will snow, snow on us this year i know there’s not much chance i can’t help but hope, and it’s been pretty cold there’s some ice in the backyard and we’re wearing our coats this may be the desert but it's still gettin' cold i can heat some water and make us a treat one cup of hot chocolate for you and one for me maybe it will snow, snow on us this year i know we don't have plows it would be nice, even if the city shuts down maybe it will snow, snow on us this year
40.

41.

42.
every time it gets just a little bit cloudy i wish for it to rain long enough to make up for the sun drying up everything every time i feel just a little bit of sadness i wish for it to go send it miles away, get it out of my mind and keep it out of my bones we all have our interests, we all hold our thoughts to be self-evident and as the time goes by, and the years we remember these things and decide what they meant every time it rains it feels like things have changed just a little bit
43.
we’re gonna have a lot of fun christmas eve at nan’s we’re gonna get a lot of visiting done christmas eve at nan’s we will see some family, we will have some treats and it will be a long long drive but it will be sweet to spend christmas eve at nan’s we’re gonna have a lot of fun christmas in nan’s garage we’re gonna get a lot of visiting done christmas in nan’s garage

hey here we are, starting another year and people try to decide what it will be like but even if you say good riddance even if you're glad to see it go it's just another measurement so hey, let's start again you could say it's another chance but we have those everyday you get a million everyday hey here we are, remembering another date and we think of who has left and who we will meet and even if you say farewell or even if you say hello it's another someone that you know hey here we are, proving ourselves right and looking with wonder at a world we thought we knew so well and even if you're in the same place even if you're somewhere new it's a great big world of possibilities
45.
i'll press down my fingers till i hit the right notes i'll push these keys until it all sounds the way i feel there's a name for everything, a word for every space and i want you to sing this with me you don't have to know the words you can sing anything i might not hit the tambourine in time i'm not quite sure if this guitar's in tune but i guess we define everything by everything else and if you want you can sing this with me i didn't really write the words you can sing anything i can put these noises all together or let them each live separately there's a home for everything, a spot for every space

dust filled the sky and covered everything it never really asked as it blew so black dust filled the sky and covered up the sun it never really asked, just ate up anything in its path the ground it shook like mad and tore up everything it never really asked as it swelled and cracked the ground it shook so bad and made some mountains it never really asked, just tore down anything in its path who has seen these things and not believed it was the end of the world the rain it soaked deep down and flooded everything it never really asked as it ran and it crashed the rain it soaked deep down and made some oceans it never really asked, just flooded everything in its path
47.
won't you come out and drive with me we can go somewhere we love or somewhere we'd like to see there's a city here and we've seen plenty of those there's more country than we think we can easily skip the tolls this desert drive doesn't seem to be so long when i know i'm headed in your direction
48.
spent so long in this empty room you know i always have space for you sometimes my voice echoes off the walls and i'm never saying anything spend a lot of time thinking about nothing spend our lives amounting to what we've been is it who you are or what you are spent some time watching the flashing lights these kids they party and fight all night their voices and cars echo down the street but they're not saying anything spend a lot of time talking about nothing spend our lives amounting to what we've been is it who you are or what you are
49.
50.
we grew up in a town paved with dirt sidewalks poured with cracks, houses made of mud but it wasn't all that different, it wasn't all that bad we grew up in a town full of people who wanted it to change, wanted it to stay the same but it wasn't all that big, it wasn't all that small we have built these monuments and these castles no one can touch anything, no one can say a word we have designed ourselves into a corner we have to lock our doors, we have to close the curtains but it isn't all just fear, it isn't all privacy we have written ourselves into a corner we can't say any bad words, we can't say the wrong words but it isn't all politeness, it isn't all manners

this car won't drive itself and i need you close to me if you want to keep me company, i'll clear off the passenger seat and we have all the time we need to see everything we want to see we can just be ourselves there's no one here but you and me we can keep each other company sometimes we're all we need we don't have to do anything and it's everything, it's everything this song won't sing itself i need you to be with me if you want, you can sing soft so softly, so softly and we'll try, we'll try, but we don't really have to try hard

who knows where we'll end up if we'll end up where we think who knows where we'll end up if we'll end up on the road between here and there looked for the eclipsed moon the clouds covered the sky so dark they looked like smoke with no sign of glowing fire i could see i couldn't see dreamt the end of the world had come and gone, and come again dreamt we lived out on a farm and we had to grow our own vegetables sing our own music and write brand new stories and make our own clothes from what we had and we built a fire every night to let the world know we were alive we were alive, we were alive
