Track Name: Aden
I grew up my father’s daughter
He said, “Don't take no shit from no one”
You'll never see me cry
’Til now I've had no reason why

I'm alone
‘Cause my baby, he's gone
Ain't no place feels like home to me
Aden, please
Don't make me move on
I've never loved anyone

Can't you see you are tearing me apart?
Don't you know you are breaking my heart?

I woke up late this evening
I went to bed this morning about nine
Didn't get much sleep last night
Funny what I've come to compromise

I'm alone
‘Cause my baby, he's gone
Ain't no place feels like home to me
Aden, please
Don't make me move on
I've never loved anyone

Can't you see you are tearing me apart?
Don't you know you are breaking my heart?

Had nothing when he left
‘Cept a pack of American Spirits
I smoked them one by one
As slow and steady as the sun

I'm alone
‘Cause my baby, he's gone
Ain't no place feels like home to me
Aden, please
Don't make me move on
I've never loved anyone

Can't you see you are tearing me apart?
Don't you know you are breaking my heart?
Can't you see you are tearing me apart?
Don't you know you are breaking my heart?
Track Name: Back When
Do you remember when
life was a spiral-bound, we were the pen?
Before wishin’ we woulda used lead
I thought of you, drove by the spot on the street
on the way to the school bus where we used to meet
and I lost my breath, just like when we were late and we were runnin’

I wanna go back to the post office,
sort through the thrown away mail
Back when we'd climb up on the roof of
the old town jail
Back when we smiled we were beamin’,
and when we cried we wailed

I wanna be the bird on the wire
so many things I forgot to admire
that to God was worth savin’
Time doesn’t whistle or rattle the tracks
and you don't hear it coming or see when it passes
and the ones it takes
won't be window-seat wavin’

I wanna sit by you on the bench of your truck,
drive out the old 58
Back when we'd listen to Hank Williams
and stare at the stars too late
Back when we smiled we were dreamin’,
and when we cried we wailed

I wanna meet you at the school after dark,
let you push me on the swing
Back when I thought you'd be the one to
save up and buy me a ring
Ya back when we smiled we were feelin’,
Yeah, back when we smiled we were beamin’,
and when we cried we wailed
Track Name: Bridges
I'd shoot out the sun
if I had someone
to walk in the dark with

And I would give up my bed
if I had a friend
to sleep on the floor with

Lord, when will my tides turn?
Let me walk o’er the bridges I've burned

Will my heart return
to the hole in my chest
where its love used to burn?

Carelessness makes you cold,
leaves you alone,
afraid to grow old

Lord when will my lessons be learned?
Let me walk o’er the bridges I've burned
Lord when will my tides turn?
Let me walk o’er the bridges I've burned

Cold, severed, and steel…
has all that I feel gone away?
Oh I, I’d offer my best,
but I've nothing left
to give away

So let thy will be done
for you knew my troubles
before they'd begun.

I'm tired of livin' this way
Weary from hurt,
Weakened from hate

Lord, when will my lessons be learned?
Let me walk o’er the bridges I've burned
Lord, when will my tides turn?
Let me walk o’er the bridges I've burned

LORD, WHEN WILL MY LESSONS BE LEARNED?
LET ME WALK O’ER THE BRIDGES I’VE BURNED
LORD, WHEN WILL MY TIDES TURN?
LET ME WALK O’ER THE BRIDGES I’VE BURNED
Track Name: Finish Line
I don’t care about things ‘cause they don’t care about me
My skin’s a lot thicker than you'd think it’d be
And I don’t need nothing to tie me down
I don’t need no one to care should I leave town

I saw the way they looked and I heard them laugh
They couldn’t wait to talk until I turned my back
Well I won’t be that bitter taste in their mouths
So I ain’t never going back to your family’s house

Waking up for the first time
Is when you don’t stop running at the finish line

Some things in life they stay the same
And they are usually the things we’d wish would change
So I won’t search for strength in someone else
Cause I can pat my own back by myself

Waking up for the first time
Is when you don’t stop running at the finish line
Waking up for the first time
Is when you don’t stop running at the finish line

I won’t worry about the roof that ain’t over my head
Hell I’d rather sleep out under these stars instead
And all the money in the world couldn’t buy me back
Ah, the Lord knows I’m too proud for that

Waking up for the first time
Is when you don’t stop running at the finish line
Waking up for the first time
Is when you don’t stop running at the finish line
Track Name: Troubled End
He swung a stranger
round the ballroom floor
With every dangerous move,
she craved more

But it's too late
to go back now
Much too late
to turn around

He kept a shiny, blue gun
underneath his dash
And deep inside she knew
their lives were gonna crash

But it's too late
to go back now
It's much too late
to turn around

He took one look at her
and knew she was the one
She didn't know her troubled end
had just begun

He passed the exit to
her happy home
Wheels spinnin' wild down
a lonesome road

But it's too late
to go back now
Much too late
to turn around

It’s much too late
to go back now
Much too late
to turn around
Track Name: Good Time Gone
Met him at the back of the bar
on Saturday
I said, “I don't drink”
He bought me one anyway
Sometimes I don't wanna act myself
That night I longed for, something else
Held it in my hands, I took a sip
Two drinks down, cold whisky on my lips
He was nothing but a good time gone

He handed me a cue
to keep me stable
Colors of the rainbow
spinning on the table
Green felt, blue chalk, neon lights
He saw it on my face, so he took me outside
Red brick wall, I'm up against
He had one foot kicked back on a chain link fence
He was nothing but a good time gone

Oh I wish time could come back to me

Next thing I knew
we're on the curb of the backstreet
Every word he spoke
so soft and sweet
Swept the hair back off my face
He had a look in his eye, one hand around my waist
Yeah he came on strong cause he knew all along
That we'd never have our first fight, we'd never have a song
He'd be nothing but a good time gone

We stopped at the willow
outside the gate
at the time well
it didn't seem late
The devil makes three, whisky makes four
Jack then Jim, Evan Williams then the floor
I'm still not proud, I said I love you out loud
I wish I could take it all back somehow
He was nothing but a good time gone

Oh, I wish time could come back to me
Oh, I wish time could come back to me
Good time gone (refrain)
Track Name: Salt to Sugar
Wish I could turn salt to sugar
in the tears that are flooding my face
Then maybe the reason behind you leavin’
wouldn't have such a bitter taste

I wish I could give you my blessings
Oh how does one give what they don't have?
Sat down did sorrow beside me
for blessed are the things that we lack

I can't go back
I've gone too far
Got in a wreck and totaled my car
And I can't escape
or either go on
The rails on the bridge were a little too strong

The Lord says that I should forgive her
for stealing my baby away
He came forth to cast out my demons
But in secret I asked them to stay

Soon pain was only progressing
And like smoke you can see but can't grasp
It was whisking up feelings inside me
that keep screaming you'd never come back

I can't go back
I've gone too far
Got in a wreck and totaled my car
I can't escape
or either go on
The rails on the bridge were a little too strong

I can't go back
I've gone too far
Got in a wreck and totaled my car
Track Name: No Guarantees
I'm somewhere in second gear
I'm using my knees to steer
Arms stretch to a blue sky
Learning to leave our love behind

She broke up with her love last week
For sayin’ her sister’s name in his sleep
Oh it wasn't the first time
Learning to leave our love behind

It's not hard to be unfaithful
Ah, the things a heart is capable of
It's not hard being unstable
‘Cause there's no guarantees in love
There are no guarantees in love

Flippin’ tapes in the tape deck
She was rollin’ up and lightin’ up our cigarettes
Red ash in the still night
Learning to leave our love behind

Gas station stops, Arizona Ice Tea cans
Filled with shells of sunflower seeds
We both cried when we reached the coast line
Learning to leave our love behind

It's not hard to be unfaithful
Ah, the things a heart is capable of
It's not hard being unstable
Cause there's no guarantees in love
There are no guarantees in love

It's not hard to be unfaithful
Ah, the things a heart is capable of
It's not hard being unstable
Cause there's no guarantees in love
There are no guarantees in love
(refrain)
Track Name: Motorcycle
I wanna roll
on over the whole world
See every state and city line
I wanna rev
my engine ‘cause I'm ready
He won't steady this heart of mine
I wanna ride
And see what's on the other side
of the setting sun
Oh please don't cry
Boy, it's been fun
But my motorcycle only seats one

I gotta move
like the waters in the river
where the lakes and the ocean mix
Please understand
I feel my boot heels sink in quick sand
baby every time we kiss
So I must go
and I can't move slow
I guess you're paying for the things you've done
Ah, understand
boy, it's been fun
But my motorcycle only seats one

My heart was pitched,
he swung and hit
Left me standing out in centerfield
Staring up
holding out my mitt
Trying to catch a love he didn't feel
Diamond in dust
I gave all of my trust
When all he wanted was to hit a home run
So please don't cry
Boy, it's been fun
But my motorcycle only seats one
Track Name: Gilded
There was a time when I was young
I'd lie in the tall grass and stare at the sun
Nothing to do but dig in the dirt
Long before my heart learned how to hurt

But you took those young days from me
Unlatched the cage, set the wild bird free
Your once golden heart gilded her wings
Sent her flying to fall beneath

White are the mountains that hold up the sky
The river is frozen, the well’s running dry
I stood in the bed where our flowers have died
You stole the rose color out of my eyes

Yeah, you took those young days from me
Unlatched the cage, set the wild bird free
Then your silver tongue gilded her wings
Sent her flying to fall beneath

You took those young days from me
Unlatched the cage, set the wild bird free
Then your silver tongue gilded her wings
Sent her flying to fall beneath

Yeah, you took those young days from me
Unlatched the cage, set the wild bird free
Your once golden heart gilded her wings
Sent her flying to fall beneath
Track Name: Better Off
How are you so sure
of what you have not faced?
Ritual is flavorless
There's something I can't taste

Why are you trying to
take the wind out of my sails?
I need somebody who'll
hold me if I fail

And we both know
you'd be better off without me
And I feel so low
Alone I'd be less lonely

I realize
that you can't comprehend
If I don't make it now
I'll lose myself again

Why are you not trying to
mend these broken wings
I need somebody who'll
smile when I sing

And we both know
you'd be better off without me
And I feel so low
Alone I'd be less lonely

I've been awaiting a’ anticipating
the words you'll never say
Your lack of ambition gave me ammunition
to take your breath away

And we both know
you'd be better off without me
And I feel so low
Alone I'd be less lonely

Yeah we both know
you'd be better off without me
And I feel so low
Alone I'd be less lonely
