Track Name: Big Big Bed
I need a big big bed
to save the dreams that I've dreamt
Catch 'em in this linen net
and keep 'em so I don't forget

I've seen my auntie's bed she lives in Amarillo
There's room to lie down but they ain't no room to spare
So Auntie's dreams fell to the floor and got lost in the night
I don't believe her when she says she don't mind

Better make my ceilings high
and keep the windows open deep into the night
Because I'll float up and cast off the sheets
and drift into the midnight trees

When he's here my bed's gonna have to be bigger
'Cause my love runs wide, my love runs wider than a Texas river

I want the whole cake I won't settle for the crumbs
Gimme room to the side and room up above
Because I'm in such a big big love
it's just too big to fall out of

When he's here my bed's gonna have to be bigger
'Cause my love runs wide, my love runs wider than a Texas river
My bed's gonna have to be bigger
'Cause my love runs wide, my love runs wider than a Texas river
Track Name: Living Without You
I'm a hacker I'm a con, I can't even write a song
I can't sing a note if you paid me
No one home, always gone, never right always wrong
And I haven't got a God who can save me

But I'm living without you, living without you
I'm living without you, living without you

I'm a loner, I'm unkind, I'm a prisoner in my mind
I'm exhausted long before the sunrise
I'm a skeptic and dissatisfied with everything I find
I'm as bitter as a gin and quinine

But I'm living without you, living without you
I'm living without you, living without you

Sweet and sour at the same time
Mink and a porcupine
Speeding ticket and a valentine

I'm a liar, I'm a cheat, I don't say what I mean
I used to care about the world around me
Lost to a thief on a dry winter leaf
I wouldn't know love if it found me

But I'm living without you, living without you
I'm living without you, living without you
But I'm living without you, living without you
I'm living without you, living without you

Sweet and sour at the same time
Mink and a porcupine
Speeding ticket and a valentine
Acid and alkaline
Track Name: If You Tell A Lie
If you tell a lie again and again
it does not become the truth in the end
If your voice is loud and your lies are well heard
still it does not mean transformation has occurred

Water isn’t wine, brass isn’t gold
One day you’ll account for all the lies that you told

If you take the forest, if you steal it tree by tree
If you blacken the river, if you desecrate the sea
You can wave your arms,
You can shout out from on high
But the truth is still the truth
and a lie is still a lie

Water isn’t wine, brass isn’t gold
One day you’ll account
for all the priceless things you sold

You can speak of God
while you lead your Holy War
As if your hands weren’t stained
by the oil you adore
More innocents will die
and more soldiers will fall
You name your church for God
but it was greed that built those walls

Water isn’t wine, brass isn’t gold
One day you’ll account
for all the lives that you stole

Two faced yes fool
Pin striped suit ghoul

You can make a promise
and some people might believe
That you are not beholden to the power,
to the greed
But if they should fall ill,
or their schools should fall down
Should they fall on hard times
Well I doubt you'll be around

Water isn't wine, brass isn't gold
And it's wrong that we should pay
for a crown that you stole
Water isn't wine, brass isn't gold
One day you'll account
for all the lies that you told
Track Name: Her Name is a Knife
Her name is a knife, shiny and new
Stab me in the back pushing all the way through
Every moment we shared, every look in your eyes
Slice it up and throw it in a hang town fry

Her name is a fist, a blow to the head
Picking up my ego and I’m coughing up red
Our love divine, our beautiful bed
Laying in the gutter with the words you said

Do you know how it feels? Well I don’t think that you do.
Confusing living in the moment and running from the truth
Don’t you ever miss us? Don’t you ever cry?
Or are you way too busy chasing her every night?

Her name is a freight train mowing me down
Taking all our love and dragging it around
I got stuck underneath, taken for a ride
I didn’t see it coming, what a fool am I

Her name is a knife, shiny and new
Stab me in the back pushing all the way through
Every moment we shared, every look in your eyes
Slice it up and throw it in a hang town fry

BRIDGE
I still about think about you
I want to be with you now
I can’t live without you, I can’t live without you

You say that you love me, but your words don’t align
With the choices you make and the ways that you lie
Don’t you ever miss us? Don’t you ever cry?
Or are you way too busy loving her every night?

Her name is a knife, her name is a knife, her name is a knife…
Track Name: Mona Lisa
Here I am, I'm trying to be fair
It falls apart, but baby I still care
The love's not gone
But I'm not strong

And on one ever said I'd have to be
The Mona Lisa with a smile
I can't get out of bed, oh, can't you see?
This misery is not my style

There you are, blameless, that's for sure
You did not get the life that you deserved
And time's been cruel
And sad, it's true

But no one ever said I'd have to be
The Mona Lisa with a smile
I can't get out of bed, can't you see
This misery is not my style

Here we are, we don't know what to say
It falls apart, now we can't go – or stay
The love's not gone
But I'm not strong

And on one ever said I'd have to be
The Mona Lisa with a smile
I can't get out of bed, oh, can't you see?
This misery is not my style

No one ever said I'd have to leave
The part of me that was on fire
I used to feel the edge, now all I see
Is holding me from what is wild

And on one ever said I'd have to be
The Mona Lisa with a smile
I can't get out of bed, oh, can't you see?
This misery is not my style
Track Name: Never Going Back Again
Written by Lindsey Buckingham.


She broke down and let me in
Made me see where I've been

Been down one time
Been down two times
I'm never going back again

You don't know what it means to win
Come down and see me again

Been down one time
Been down two times
I'm never going back again
Track Name: Pajaros Sin Alas
I'm a bird that doesn't fly
When I go, is it earth or is it sky?
Pajaro sin alas, pez que no nada
I'm a fish that doesn't swim
When I sink, am I out or am I in?

I'm a rose without a garden
I'm a brush without an artist
Almost done before I started
Almost done before I started

I'm a bird that doesn't fly
When I go, is it earth or is it sky?
Pajaro sin alas, pez que no nada
I'm a fish that doesn't swim
When I sink, am I out or am I in?

I'm afraid I haven't tried it
I'm the maid, I'm not the bride
I Always tried to justify it
Always tried to justify it

I'm a bird that doesn't fly
When I go, is it earth or is it sky?
Pajaro sin alas, pez que no nada
I'm a fish that doesn't swim
When I sink, am I out or am I in?

I'm a king without a nation
I'm a house with no foundation
I'm a flashy imitation
I'm a flashy imitation

I'm a bird that doesn't fly
When I go, is it earth or is it sky?
Pajaro sin alas, pez que no nada
I'm a fish that doesn't swim
When I sink, am I out or am I in?


I'm a song without a player
I'm a card without a wager
I'm a minor not a major
I'm a minor not a major

I'm a bird that doesn't fly
When I go, is it earth or is it sky?
Pajaro sin alas, pez que no nada
I'm a fish that doesn't swim
When I sink, am I out or am I in?

Un tambor sin su ritmo
Una cancion sin pajarito
Un dolor sin su grito
Un dolor sin su grito

I'm a bird that doesn't fly
When I go, is it earth or is it sky?
Pajaro sin alas, pez que no nada
I'm a fish that doesn't swim
When I sink, am I out or am I in?

Un balcon sin la vista
Un pallaso siempre triste
Solamente una chispa
Solamente una chisp

I'm a bird that doesn't fly
When I go, is it earth or is it sky?
Pajaro sin alas, pez que no nada
I'm a fish that doesn't swim
When I sink, am I out or am I in?
Track Name: Bird in Hand
She was young and you were, too,
but your heart was cold and gray
A pretty lass, as clear as glass, a diamond for a day
You held her hand, the promised land,
her fears you did allay
Babe you had a bird in hand and in that hand she strayed

The sweetest words she'd ever heard,
they made her trip and sway
You took her down to the old red town
and had your wicked way
Morning came, nothing the same,
her feet had turned to clay
Babe you had a bird in hand and in that hand she lay

Time did pass, and she alas,
felt something that did weigh
A sad-eyed girl, your country pearl
had fallen, as they say
And when she cried, you turned aside,
you pushed her love away
Babe you had a bird in hand and in that hand she stayed

She was young and you were too,
but your heart was cold and gray
When the summer breeze turned to autumn leaves
you took yourself away
You never thought of her sad lot,
she faced a judgment day
Babe you had a bird in hand, a bird that hand betrayed

Years went by, (& all that implies)
And with age came dismay
Your thoughts transformed, your heart grew warm,
you changed your wicked ways
Remembered love, a simple dove,
your diamond in the hay
Babe you had a bird in hand, a hand you overplayed

You went down to the old red town,
the streets in dust now paved
Your pretty thing, a memory,
had long since slipped away
They said she died by the riverside
on a chilly autumn day
Babe you had a bird in hand but the bird has flown away
Track Name: Orange
She hates to comb her hair
She hates to take a bath
but once she’s in that tub,
you’ll never get her out
She loves to ride a horse
She loves a summer swim
Never hurt a heart,
so she won’t choose a best friend

Orange, Orange
Her favorite color orange
Big ball of fire, sweet citrus storm

She’ll beat you bad at Boggle
In Scrabble let you tie
I’m a little shy to say
she’s read more books than I
Her words are few and far
unless there’s pen in hand
Then she’ll write you out a story
about her mama’s band

Orange, Orange
Her favorite color orange
Tigers turned to kittens
on the day that she was born

Light, light is the dusk
and I worry sometimes,
I’m not worthy of the trust
Sweet, sweet is the dawn
It’s a privilege beyond…
any privilege
She’s a crazy cuddle bug
An endless sofa spud
She always slows me down
to watch a movie about love
She can tear up like a well
and water’s all around
I try to swim along
so I don’t miss a sound

Orange, Orange
Her favorite color orange
Tigers turned to kittens
on the day that she was born
Track Name: Throw Me a Bone
I don't want to compromise, I want to look into your eyes
I don't want to be in my head, let's make love in the bed
I don't want to cause you pain, speak your truth and let it rain
Let it rain, let it rain...

I try, but I can't get the wings to fly
I learn, but I can't get the wheels to turn
So I go it alone where nothing is known
Throw me a bone, throw me a bone

I don't want to work all day, I need a lot more time to play
I don't want to see the shrink at three, maybe there's nothing wrong with me
Wrong with me, wrong with me...

I try, but I can't get the wings to fly
I learn, but I can't get the wheels to turn
So I go it alone where nothing is known
Throw me a bone, throw me a bone

Floating out to sea, engine dead, no sail to set , a broken wing and a prayer
Hands tied behind my back, watch the train run off the track,
Do you want your money back, do you want

I don't want to waste your time, I just want to blow your mind
I don't want to lose more sleep, I just want to feel you deep
Feel you deep, feel you deep

I try, but I can't get the wings to fly
I learn, but I can't get the wheels to turn
So I go it alone where nothing is known
Throw me a bone, throw me a bone
Track Name: Countdown
I'm sick of the news they're talking at me
Everybody's killing everybody,
everybody's killing everybody
Countdown every night

I'm sick of the pills they're pushing at me
Everybody get stoned, get happy, happy,
everybody get stoned, get happy, happy
Countdown every night

I just want to love ya baby, baby
Love, love, love, love ya baby, baby
I just want to love ya baby, baby
Love, love, love, love ya baby, baby
Countdown every night

I'm sick of the spin they're putting on me
Everybody get young, get skinny, skinny (x2)
Countdown every night

I'm sick of this dogma coming at me
Sex, terror and God and money, money (x2)
Countdown every night

I just want to love ya baby, baby
Love, love, love, love ya baby, baby
I just want to love ya baby, baby
Love, love, love, love ya baby, baby
Countdown every night

I'm sick of the lies they're throwing at me
Gotta spit in their eye before they get me (x2)
Countdown every night

I'm sick of this dogma coming at me
Sex, terror and God and money, money (x2)
Countdown every night
Track Name: Hurricane
She's almost a hurricane
I'll tell you what that means
It means she isn't quite as strong as she wants you to believe

She'll spin on through the tangled trees
Her tears blend with the rain
She's almost a hurricane...
She's almost a hurricane

She's knows you're enjoying the weather
The way it changes and blows you to the ground
She can call it in to come
She can call it in to go...

She's almost a hurricane
I'll tell you what that means
It means she isn't quite as strong as she wants you to believe
She'll spin on through the tangled trees
Her tears blend with the rain
She's almost a hurricane...
She's almost a hurricane

Feel her rising from far away
Mostly blue skies mixed with gray
She's got that slow build forward
To forever in a day...

She's almost a hurricane
I'll tell you what that means
It means she isn't quite as strong as she wants you to believe
She'll spin on through the tangled trees
Her tears blend with the rain
She's almost a hurricane...
She's almost a hurricane

touch her she'll be silent
touch her she'll be stronger
touch her she'll break open
And be falling all around you

She'll move you from bitter to end
Waterfalls of sweetness and sin
Lay you down And begin to build again...
She's almost a hurricane
I'll tell you what that means…
Track Name: Chain of Fools
Written by Aretha Franklin

Chain, chain, chain, chain, chain, chain
Chain, chain, chain, chain of fools
Five long years I thought you were my man
But I found out I'm just a link in your chain
You got me where you want me
I ain't nothing but your fool
You treated me mean oh you treated me cruel
Chain, chain, chain, chain of fools

Every chain has got a weak link
I might be weak child, but I'll give you strength
You told me to leave you alone
My father said come on home
My doctor said take it easy
Whole bunch of lovin' is much too strong
I'm added to your chain, chain, chain
Chain, chain, chain, chain,
Chain, chain of fools

One of these mornings the chain is gonna break
But up until then, yeah, I'm gonna take all I can take
Chain, chain, chain, chain, chain, chain
Chain, chain, chain, chain of fools
