Track Name: Ghost
ten states in two days
leave home on a rainy Saturday
half a plan to make it on my own
I drink, she smokes
cigarettes in a rusted out Buick
who is she, in virginia’s marble fountains?
she’s not real. she’s a ghost of the mountain.
she makes good time
even stopping for a bite on the sidewalk
good taste in songs and small talk, seems to me
I’d give my heart to her
so would anyone else who knew her.
she don’t care about much livin, just wants to be
who is she in Virginia’s marble fountains
she’s not real, she’s a ghost of the mountain
Track Name: Line by Line
cool nights in apartments, she walked around naked, and whispered sweetheart in bed.
spoon in a cup, on a chair in the kitchen, she put he small hands on my head
darling from so long ago, can I miss you from time to time
when I write my quiet songs, when I love you line by line
All the places you lived and the places you loved, push it away forever
will you have sad and sweeter memories of the years that you spent together
darling from so long ago, can I miss you from time to time
when I write my quiet songs, when I love you line by line
Track Name: Sideline
the world is fast and sometimes cruel
you and I have both been lonely
I think you’re beautiful, I think you’re cool
I would be your one and only
only
loving on the sidelines
watching all the wheels spin with you
watching all the sunrise
looking into your eyes
you are different, you’re like me
the beauty in the world’s enough for you
you live to hear you live to see
all the rivers open up for you
for you
loving on the sidelines
watching all the wheels spin with you
looking into your eyes
watching all the sunrise
with you
Track Name: Yellow Field
I know the song of the break, the call of hunger, the desperate sound when you go under
the color of violence, a yellow field
I’ve been lost in a ditch in the light of morning, gathering up my drunken pieces,
bit of bread and water for my meal
I’ve been long apart from all my people
I’ve been separate from the land where I was born and learned to sing
I’ve dreamed of wandering back around her with the music I have found
to find a hill and let it ring
Track Name: Old Dominion
the flag of the old dominion flies high for some reason
mothers grow their gardens in their homes
when the robin tears up your grass
when the roses are in season,
old Toyotas click down Richmond road
you can take your lunch now, coffee and a bite
under some umbrella on the street
with your looks and your money
you parade around at night
silver on your arms, gold on your feet
we used to grow in quiet rows underneath the southern sun
in old dominion
you’ve looked for three years for a tiny bit of sunrise
had to drive alone for days to find it
borrowed love from the closest thing you found to home
she listened to your song, said she didn’t mind it…
I thank good fortune, I hope to keep it living
may I grow my garden in the shade
hope that I am measured by the things that I have given
when life in Virginia starts to fade
we used to grow in quiet rows underneath the southern sun
in old dominion
Track Name: Valentine
the presents that I bought you
the stack of broken keyboards
breakfast wine of the month club
our portrait signed by the drummer from rush
this is your valentines day
you said i knew you so well
you gave me new guitar strings
and a bedazzled seashell
In the dark we begin our love
holiday rendezvous sublime
my valentine
in the air where we will throw our clothes
turn the radio on
and take your time
valentine
You read your special poem
you are my golden moonbeam
I love you more than I love
our portrait signed by the drummer from rush
you sang your song of longing
behind a mariachi
we heard the horns together
I looked into your eyes
I always think about making you smile
in the kitchen chair, when we’re drinking out, when you’re walking to
the parking lot
it breaks my heart, we were out of time
I need five years to love you
I will leave you behind
My valentine.

in the dark, we begin our love
holiday rendezvous sublime
my valentine
in the air where we will throw our clothes
turn the radio on and take your time
Valentine
Track Name: Mary Write
Mary write to make my heart tight
make me blink into the sun
does anybody hear what you’re saying
I want to be the only one
I feel I’ve been buried in dust
in the shadow of a mountain town
things you’ve been making me wonder
the colors you’ve been putting down
I hear you, write to me
It’s just, it’s just a little hard to
get by without you to hold on to
never had to write a song
until I started writing for you
it doesn’t mean I have a story
I wont get behind you in line
can’t help but feeling closer
when you’re always on my mind
I hear you, write to me
Track Name: Charles' House
when he left for japan he gave me the keys to his house
he said you can watch my tv and you can sleep on my couch
maybe try a cup of those espresso beans I’ve been pushing
just don’t eat lunchable crackers just don’t get crumbs in my cushion
Banging in charles’ house
(that’s right I said that I’ve been)
(he doesn’t know that I’ve been)
(there’s nobody else around)
I went through all his movies to send me something to view
I thought that it would be ironic to watch some Rush Hour 2
I wonder how is asia and I hope that you’re coping
but man I’m wondering why there’s so much lotion out in the open
Banging in charles’ house
(that’s right I said that I’ve been)
(he doesn’t know that I’ve been)
(there’s nobody else around)
I went into the fridge to see what I could steal
I found a bunch of marshmallows inside a Ziploc bag
(why would you have that, NOBODY does THAT)
Track Name: Zebra Man
I wake up to my Zebra Man
He wears a blue suit and paisley tie
I live in art, I am the man
I am recording my crazy time
Backwater small brewery
rattle your cruel jewelry
I need to cut my growing hair
no direction, I have no style
I used to see movies with her
but now it kills me to see her smile
backwater small brewery
rattle your cruel jewelry
Track Name: Marigold
In my sleep I run toward tomorrow,
in a series of Compiled Dreams,
floating slowly just above the ground,
throwing everything into the stream.
See the light pull apart,
yellow screams on the lawn,
just a flash of silver
and then I’m gone.
Run through the house,
embrace the dark,
pull away from the house
in a stranger’s car…
then summer light, the blooming air:
I am alive in a comfy chair
feelings of love for my best friend.
I smell the Marigold again.
I saw the light of my own death,
I felt the pull of my last breath.
I looked around and skipped the end.
I smell the Marigold again.
I’ve been drawn by a tired needle.
I have wandered off without my clothes.
I have screamed, I have touched the EVIL.
I believe in EVIL I suppose.
Pour a handle again
is that my lover I see?
kick my troubles loose
kick her in the knee
just a flash of red
before the fall
my spirit’s flush up against the wall…
then summer light, the blooming air
I am alive in a comfy chair
feelings of love for my best friend
I smell the Marigold again.
I saw the light of my own death.
I felt the pull of my last breath.
I looked around and skipped the end.
I smell the Marigold again.
