Track Name: Honey Blue
Honey Blue

Ran my head through the dirt
Saw my heart for what it’s worth
Couldn’t believe she left me again

Grabbed my coat at the door
Swore again, yeah I tore you a new one
But that didn’t matter, did it baby
You’re always running from your heart
Running into only dark
And light was in my eyes

Honey Blue

Cold and wet and damp and bright and new
The morning dew in the summer time
When you’re at your highest
Lows and darkness come and follow you
When you find the truth is boring
And you let the whole thing go

Honey Blue

Picked up your Bible and read me a psalm
And said I feel like David tonight
I said, ‘babe look at the stars,
Look at the Giant heart in front of you.’
You just sat there, oh you sat there.

Honey Blue

Cashed my only check when I ran down to the bank
And bought you, yeah I bought you my heart
Ran for you door, but you were standing there no more
And I sat there, oh I sat there,
Said it’s true what you’re feeling, it’s true what you know
It’s true what you’re feeling, I feel low, low, low.

Honey Blue.
Track Name: What Haunts Your Road?
What Haunts Your Road?

What haunts your Road, in the morning?
When your tune skips, what haunts your road?

Is it the speckled dew, on the blade of grass?
Is it the moon, that has yet to set?
Is it the car in the driveway that needs a new everything?

Is it the storm, on the Northern horizon?
Is it the Ocean, too wide for a liar?
Is the stench in the hotel when you know you should be home?

Is it the righteous and their frozen halo?
Is it the hopelessness of a mass murder?
Is it everyone and everything, today, that marks your grave?

In the morning don’t wait for my sake
To say goodbye
I’m gonna sleep the day away
Into the night

On the carpet, of the motel,
In the morning, when the sign says,
Put on your bells and dance for the dirty man in the bed

The political moonlight, the whitewash trenches we grieve
And the Dickens, someone we wouldn’t believe
If he were here, now, haunting me.

Cause that’s how I saw you, before you did the act
That’s how I knew you, before you went and shacked
Up with my best friend, and the man with the money
In his pocket gets to take you.

Cause I’ve got my days ahead of me,
And I’ve got my conscience
For what it is I need to be
So when you say goodbye, say goodbye

I wonder why.
Track Name: Lay Me Down
Lay Me Down

Rosy
Call on me
In the Morning
Rosy

Now, Love won't lay me down
When the waters came, and washed you out
Track Name: Rosy
Rosy

Rosy knows, how to throw, a thorn in your side
A gentle hand, turns to shame, and your hear beats a lie
She’ll let you down, she’ll steal your crown and move
On through the night.
How beautiful, the petals dance, the rogue of my life

But I’m not saying I want you back
No I’m not saying I want you back

Rosy knows, where the wind blows
Like a feather in time
A drifting seed in the wind to plant a new life
The one we built, well it was built in dirt and muck and fear -
Not my style.
Our roots are dead, the siren bells are ringing in
A new Soul

Rosy knows how to hoard the beauty in life
But empty souls, draped in robes, a white washed lie
Their tombs are full of bone and dust and filth,
A death in the light
They feed on you, if you step in, and then you paint
Your own little lie

Here my dew, forward to you
Can my dew, forward to you?
Oh no, Rosy don’t, your left eye is bleeding in the night
Red and bright, full of light, but I see the thorn in your side
Cold as night, a damsel’s cry, oh Rosy Kumbya, Kumbya
Oh Rosy, Kumbya.
