Track Name: Locked Up
and you sigh, every time i touch you and then say goodnight
goodnight goodnight
but i lied, get locked up baby, get locked up with me tonight
tonight tonight

get away, get over, get back ,and get back sober tonight
and we'll be alone
get out into these sunset afternoons and forget what's gone wrong in your life this time
we'll be kicking down doors and running towards the night

and you sigh, every time i touch you and then say goodnight
goodnight goodnight
but i lied, get locked up baby, get locked up with me tonight
tonight tonight

deep breaths and simple discourse, we're heading to the coast
to get some rest
take off with me and trust that we'll get it right this time because we know where we want to be
oh we'll be here driving straight on through the night

and you sigh, every time i touch you and then say goodnight
goodnight goodnight
but i lied, get locked up baby, get locked up with me tonight
tonight tonight

all our friends
all these weekends
sun splash, hanging on to each other through all that went wrong in our lives
tonight
Track Name: Tennessee
"take it all back, bring me the next one. never you mind, where it's from." those were the last words we heard him say right before he collapsed. now we got phone calls. plans to be set. a weekend down in mobile again. it's funny how all this seems to get pushed to the horizon. deferred until the night comes and grabs onto both of us.

come on over. come with me. come on down to tennessee. we got lots to talk about and there's no one else around. maybe all this has a purpose. maybe we can get it right. come on over and tell me why you won't spend the...

come and collect a bag of possessions. take what you need and go. make up your mind to come out of this a little better. and we'll give it all back. we'll never get taken. we'll never be fools again. we'll see the best of the people around us and remember that we never surrendered and turned around this year.

come on over. come with me. come on down to tennessee. we got lots to talk about and there's no one else around. maybe all this has a purpose. maybe we can get it right. come on over and tell me why you won't spend the...

you got all this. you got me. we got this house. tennessee. playing all our favorite songs. fall asleep in each others arms. and remember all the hard times, all the things we thought we'd drag like a stone? they'll all become dust on our front lawn.

come on over. come with me. come on down to tennessee. we got lots to talk about and there's no one else around. maybe all this has a purpose. maybe we can get it right. come on over and tell me why you won't spend the...
Track Name: Draw Us All
this is where the weekdays begin
this is where all the debts come due
this is the point in the joke where we all stop laughing
and start to wonder

this is where all of our
drinking turns from fun to medicine
this is where our recollecting leads
this is who we always said we'd never have to

worry we'd be, so worried we'd be
so worried, we'd be so worried
so worried we'd be, so worried we'd be
so worried, we'd be so worried

this is where you don't look the same
this is where i can't find anyone to blame
and walk the other way
call a cab and sleep all day

this is all that we can hope for
this is all that's left to expect
to say goodbye, to all our friends
and marry each other, marry each other and we

will be so lonely, we'll be so lonely
we'll be so lonely
so lonely, we'll be so lonely, we'll be
so lonely, we'll be so lonely

give me balance, give me order
give me everything i need
make a motion, with your arms and
bring us both into the sea

give me balance, give me order
give me everything i need
make a motion, with your arms and
draw us all into the sea

so lucky, we'll be so lucky,
we'll be so lucky, we'll be so lucky
lucky, we'll be so lucky, we'll be so lucky
we'll be so lucky

and oh, we got balance, we got order
we got everything we need
and make a motion, with your arms and
draw us all in to the sea
the sea
Track Name: Like A Ghost
nothing gets old. it just gets replaced. like me and distractions and you and this place. but i'll be the only light in the room left shining. left shining. like a ghost. like a ghost.

you're so surprising and sweetly arranged. winter almost killed us but something here remains. and i'll be the miner if you'll be the gold inside these hills. the face behind my will.

and now that i see that nothing comes cheap i'll be. i'll be the host. and all these light eyes. and all these white lies i told come back to me. like a ghost.

now we're distracted. awkwardly pulled. a sidewalk that's spinning out of our control. but i'll be the hope if you'll be the life i finally choose. the line i never lose.

and now that i see that nothing comes cheap i'll be. i'll be the host. and all these light eyes. and all these white lies i told come back to me. like a ghost.

get back
get it back tonight
swim out
out of the tide
swim right into my life.
Track Name: One Good Reason
take a minute, collect your thoughts
write 'em done here on these four white walls
and wake up later in the afternoon
later in the after...

we got over here as soon as we figured out
what you were gonna do
and we'll be wolves when they come for us
wolves when they come for

and you don't get distracted, now
and you don't see anyone else

nevermind what you'll get wrong
there's another chance coming along
and we'll be wolves when they come for us
wolves when they come for us

and you don't get distracted, now
and you don't see anyone else
and you don't get the message, baby, why don't you see
baby, i'm right here

get back and give me one good reason
give me one good reason you said to me tonight
we'll be here, baby, we'll be singing and you'll see it
see it

get back and give me one good reason
give me one good reason you said to me tonight
we'll be here, baby, we'll be screaming and you'll see it
see it
Track Name: Midwestern You
we are the only, we'll get it right,
we better write it down before we forget
i've seen the future fleetingly,
keep on putting feet in front of feet, and get on
get along

we are the only, we’ll get it right,
how we remember when this all began here
keep on repeating our old lines,
keep on putting feet in front of feet, again another time

and you’re goddamn right, you did you did,
and you’re goddamn right, you said, what you said
but I’ll be here baby, we’ll get past stable
and get there on our own

you were the only, you were the one,
you were the only thing I saw for months here.
snapping back and forth between,
careening through the midwest back to
dreams of dreams of my routine

and you’re goddamn right, you did you did,
and you’re goddamn right, you said, what you said
and we’ll be here baby, we’ll get past stable
and get there on our own.

you were tired you saw through the balance
and you brought yourself over here, brought yourself over here,
and oh how I came so close to disaster
but I made my way home, and I made my way directly to you

come on

we were the young, we were the only
we were the ever loving boys and girls
we got it right, we were mistaken
we keep putting feet in front of feet

come on
