Colin M. Another fantastic journey of americana that builds, and in my opinion improves, upon their previous (and great in it's own right) work. Favorite track: Coal.

Track Name: Desert
He said meet me in the desert
He said I'll be there by the wind
He said we don't need any rain
Said don't need a fifth of gin.

But I lost my heart in the desert
I lost my soul in the wind
I lost my mind in the sands
I lost it over, and over and over again.

He said meet me by the oasis.
He said meet me by the pool.
Doesn't have to be hot in the desert
Come on over here it's cool.

But I lost my heart in the desert
I lost my soul in the wind
I lost my mind in the sands
I lost it over, and over and over again.
Again.....again....again
Track Name: The Valley
I was walking through the valley
Through the valley of light
When I looked around me
And saw something was just not right
Coming up through the darkness
Coming up through the gloom
And it tried to make it's way into my room.

But I said no, no, no
Go back to where you came
You don't get to see my face
You don't get to call my name
Go back down under
Into your green and murky swamp
Cuz you ain't got nothing that I want

No you ain't, no you ain't
Gonna take our love and give us hate
We won't wait, won't wait
Won't be quiet or hesitate
Til it's too late

Now we're walking through the valley
Through the valley of light
And we'll keep on walking
Til we make it right
We'll say no to the darkness
We'll say no to the gloom
And we won't let the dark into our room

We'll say no, no, no
Go back to where you came
You don't get to see our face
You don't get to call our name
Go back down under
Into your green and murky swamp
Cuz you ain't got nothing that I want
Track Name: Melody
If I laid down a melody
Would you follow me tonight?
If I laid down a harmony
Would it make everything alright?

Just for fun, add bass and drums.
Will you be here when the morning comes?
Count me in, to sing again
Hope you don't mind the state I'm in.

If I laid down a brand new song
Would you sing along tonight?
If I laid down in an open field
Would you meet me in the moonlight?

Just for fun, add bass and drums.
Will you be here when the morning comes?
Count me in, to sing again
Hope you don't mind the state I'm in.
Hope you don't mind, hope you don't mind
Hope you don't mind the state I'm in.
Track Name: Meet Me There
Darlin I'm leaving on the outbound train
If you meet me there, I will refrain.
I won't look into your eyes.
You think they're full of alibis.

Alibis, alibis, and goodbyes, and a disguise.
But don't you know, I loved you so?
Don't you see me?
Don't you care, that I was falling down the stairs?

Now you're painting your little pictures of me.
Am I only who you think you see?
If you step into my little mind,
You might be surprised at what you find.

No alibis, no alibis, no goodbyes and no disguise.
But don't you know, I loved you so?
Won't you stay? Please don't go.

Darlin I'm leaving on the outbound train
If you meet me there, I will refrain.
I won't look into your eyes.
You think they're full of alibis.
No I won't look into your eyes.
You think they're full of alibis.
Track Name: Dirty Little Blues
Well I got these dirty little blues
And I keep getting dirtier for you
Not one thing I can refuse
When I get these dirty little blues

So let me ride on your pillow
We've got nothing to lose
I might weep like a willow
If you don't let me blow out your fuse

Cuz I got these dirty little blues
And I keep getting dirtier for you
Not one thing I can refuse
When I get these dirty little blues

So let me put you on a plate
I know it's getting late
But you won't have to do much to participate
I see you're getting tired
But you've gotta pay your dues
Cuz I've got these dirty little blues

So let's go down to the country
I hear they've got great views
Let me put it to you bluntly
That I got these dirty little blues

There's not one thing I can refuse
When I get these dirty little blues
And won't you put yourself in my shoes?
Cuz I've got, these dirty little blues.
Track Name: Fireproof
Baby I'm hanging on the line
Baby I, I'm looking for the truth
And I don't want to lose my mind
But baby I, I'm not fireproof

And where there's smoke there's fire
I'm hanging on the line
I'm running out of time

Baby I'm hanging on the line
Baby I, I'm looking for some proof
And I don't want to lose my mind
So maybe I'll just climb out on the roof

And where there's smoke there's fire
I'm hanging on the line
I'm running out of time
Track Name: Full Moon
I've got a full moon in my mind
It's breaking the clouds that fill the sky
I'm breaking away from ties that bind
Filling my eyes with bright moonshine

And the moon is full, the moon is bright
Somebody's howling tonight
I close my eyes and feel the light
It lifts me up and it sets me right
It sets me right

The tips of my claws, they're filled with rage
They're bending the steel bars on my cage
The night it shakes like an attack
I'm running ahead not turning back

And the moon is full, the moon is bright
Somebody's howling tonight
I close my eyes and feel the light
It lifts me up and it sets me right
It sets me right

You can shoot that silver bullet through my mind
You can shoot that silver bullet through my eyes
In the morning in the sunlight you will find
In the morning sun I will rise

I've got a full moon in my mind
It's breaking the clouds that fill the sky
I'm breaking away from ties that bind
Filling my eyes with bright moonshine

And the moon is full, the moon is bright
Somebody's howling tonight
I close my eyes and feel the light
It lifts me up and it sets me right
It sets me right
Track Name: Songbird
It's Sunday night
I should be turning out the light
But these past days keep spinning through my mind
Been a long crooked path
That brought me here to crash
Over the miles and miles of road right into you

You call me an angel
You say I'm a songbird
And I don't know if that's exactly true
The sad things in life
Don't want them to eat me up inside
So I sing at night to keep away the blues

You fly west across the sky
I get back on with my life
I'm still nobody's girl
And I'm nobody's wife
I keep turning through this maze
To keep my babies warm and safe
And I've got these last few days to set down on a page

You call me an angel
You say I'm a songbird
And I don't know if that's exactly true
The sad things in life
Don't want them to eat me up inside
So I sing at night to keep away the blues
Track Name: Red Wine
Been looking for you lately on my lawn
Been looking for you baby but you're gone
Been looking all the time
Across the borderline
And at the bottom of my glass of red wine

Been looking in the back of my car
But I'm not so sure that's where you are
I'm running out of places
So maybe I'll find
You in the bottom of my glass of red wine

You may be in the mountains
Of New Mexico
I heard that's where you wanna go
Or maybe in the backroads of my mind
Or in the bottom of my glass of red wine

Been looking for you lately on my lawn
Been looking for you baby but you're gone
Been looking all the time
Across the borderline
And at the bottom of my glass of red wine
Yeah I'm looking all the time
Across the borderline
And at the bottom of my glass of red wine
Track Name: Coal
Just another highway
Just another town
Just another road that
I shouldn't be going down

Just another city
Just another night
Just another arrow
Lost in the light

And I'm digging in to the ground
And I'm walking on a wire
And I put another coal
On the fire
I'm just putting coals on the fire
Putting coals on the fire
Putting coals on the fire
On the fire

Just another moonrise
Just another cloud
Just another word that
I shouldn't say out loud

And I'm digging in to the ground
I'm walking on a wire
And I put another coal
On the fire
I'm just putting coals on the fire
Putting coals on the fire
Putting coals on the fire
On the fire
Track Name: Warnings
There's a warning, up in the sky.
Every morning and every night.
And I'm haunted, just like a ghost.
And I'm wanting you to love me the most.
And I'm wasted and jealous and high.
Can you taste it? This sweet apple pie?
I've been saving it all up for you.

There's a warning out on the street.
There's a warning wherever we meet.
There's a warning out on the road.
There's a warning wherever I go.
And it's storming snow and sleet.
Ya it's storming. Wherever we meet.
There's a warning to get out of the road.

There's a warning up in the sky.
Every morning and every night.
Clouds are forming.
And I don't know why but it's storming.
Time to get out of the road.
Get out of the road.
Get out of the road.
I should get out of the road.
