Track Name: Moon
Moon, Moon, cast your light away from me
Moon, moon, ’til you shine on my release

I never was a daughter of the daylight
and you never were a lamp I could believe
A reflection showing everything I wanted
and making ash of everything I see

By your light I fell in love with the darkness
all but blinded to the pain that love would bring
And in that glow love looked like all I ever needed
so in the dark I let the devil clip my wings

Moon, moon, cast your light away from me
Moon, moon, ’til you shine on my release

Call off the dogs, you know I’m not
some little lamb you got lost
We both know how this one ends
I’ll go to sleep, and you will fight
to keep your place in the light
filling holes that you can never mend

Moon, moon, cast your light away from me
Moon, moon, ’til you shine on my release
Track Name: Blue Highway
Send me no letters from your travels
no photographs to flatten the sky
like the plains you will unravel
and the flowers I will dry
they will not carry you back home
and I will take no substitute
no promises from hotel phones
carried on waves of hollow truth

I could not tame the desert lightning
nor bottle up the wild prairie wind
You said you’d make your home with me here
but the horizon calls again
I do not care for distant stars
unless they’re shining in your eyes
When you return, tell it to me
but don’t you waste one minute’s time

Some love is jealous, some untrue
and both have I been guilty of
But all I’ve left to offer you
is a blue highway kind of love

So keep your boots of Spanish leather
I’m not the one you meant them for
These storms I won’t ask you to weather
I know you’ve weathered them before
I will give you to the highway
and will not pine for your return
if when it comes my time to wander
you’ll let my restless fires burn

Some love is jealous, some untrue
and both have I been guilty of
But all I’ve left to offer you
is a blue highway kind of love
Track Name: Jealousy
Jealousy, oh jealousy
break these ties and set me free
I’m not who I used to be
since you got a hold on me
Nowhere to run, oh jealousy

I thought that I was born to ramble
traveling light and staying gone
I’d not put roots in soil or bramble
just write it down and move along

But the wind blew the pages from my bible
and filled my eyes up with their dust
’til I sought shelter from my trials
in loving arms, I turned to rust

Jealousy, oh jealousy
break these ties and set me free
I’m not who I used to be
since you got a hold on me

I loved him for his easy laughter
and for the storm behind his eyes
but it was more that he was after
than any woman could provide

I would not cause a good man to suffer
so I set him free with my pride
but to see him with another
was more than my heart could abide

Jealousy, oh jealousy
break these ties and set me free
I’m not who I used to be
since you got a hold on me
You held the gun, oh jealousy

Unquiet minds will not seek harbor
in any calm, untroubled bay
I brought my tempest to rough waters
and drove the one I loved away

Jealousy, oh jealousy
break these ties and set me free
I’m not who I used to be
since you got a hold on me
What have I done, oh jealousy
You held the gun, oh jealousy
Nowhere to run, oh jealousy
Track Name: Cat & Bird
Come away, little bird
Come away from that tree
Come and sit by my window
Come and sit and talk with me

Leave behind your bed of feathers
Leave behind your house of leaves
Leave behind your mother’s singing
Come and sit and sing with me

I’ll not harm you, little bird
I’ll not go beneath your tree
But I’ll not stray from this window
’til you come and sing for me

Leave behind your bed of feathers
Leave behind your house of leaves
Leave behind your mother’s singing
Come and sit and sing for me

Fly away, little bird
Get thee far away from me
Don’t you come back ‘round my window
Don’t you come ‘round haunting me

Leave behind your bed of feathers
Leave behind your house of leaves
Leave behind your mother’s singing
For you’ll never sing for me
Track Name: Juliet
I used to be Juliet
Mine were perfect hands for holding and I had no word for regret
Every day I’d write a song for a lover I’d not met
Oh, I used to be Juliet

I used to know what flowers were for
but they stopped showing up in hands that waited at my door
So I planted my own but they’re not blooming anymore
Oh, I used to know what flowers were for

Now I’m afraid that Juliet is dead
I fired a shot I didn’t aim, and it went right to her head
And I’ve no idea who’s been sleeping next to you instead
But she’s not talking
Lord, she’s not talking

I think I’m gonna catch me a train
There’s nothing here but ghosts, I hear them howling when it rains
I washed my eyes out in that water, but it all looks the same
Oh, I think I’m gonna catch me a train

Don’t look for me tomorrow, I’ll be gone
I’ll leave your bed a little colder, but I’m warmer when I run
And if she’s rattling your locks at night, just tell her what I’ve done
Oh, don’t look for me tomorrow, I’ll be gone
Track Name: White Lines
Dry heat lightning in the western sky
Thunder rolling under my wheels tonight
I headed straight for the storm, knew what I would find
Someone take me home, I don’t need this fight
Someone take me home, I don’t need this fight

Dog laying out in the middle of the road
Can’t look him in the eye, I’ll just take him home
I know he’s already gone, nothing I can do
But that never stopped me, honey, look at you
Never stopped me, honey, look at you

And I keep coming back around
All these miles I put between us, they just weigh me down
White lines around my ankles, they chain me to the ground
How I long to disappear without a sound

Thunder on the mountain and fire in the hills
Maybe love is nothing but a battle of wills
I don’t blame you, dear, for the things you’ve done
But it’s time that one of us learned to cut and run
Time that one of us learned to cut and run

And I keep coming back around
All these miles I put between us, they just weigh me down
White lines around my ankles, they chain me to the ground
How I long to disappear without a sound
Track Name: Sirens
Wild jasmine skin, sweeter than wine
That wicked grin gets him every time
I know he’s a goner, so please be kind
to the heart I did not hold when it was mine
to the heart I did not hold when it was mine

From across the bar, you’ll cross your legs high
and follow his gaze to the skin of your thigh
You’ll give him a smile, he’ll lower his eyes
Oh, the pieces get harder to sweep up with time
Oh, the pieces get harder to sweep up with time

Because death is more than enough
when all it takes is love
to undo a man, and lay down his arms
But heaven help you if he comes to harm
Oh, heaven help you if he comes to harm

And the roses are falling for lovers we lost in the war
who walked straight into cannon fire knowing what they were in for
And I’m tempted to follow, and throw myself into the light
Maybe all we deserve is a warm place to land for the night

So I’ll take my part, and I’ll close my eyes
Leave you to peace, and go searching for mine
You do your worst, and you take your time
And I’ll see you in hell with the rest of our kind
Oh, I’ll see you in hell with the rest of our kind
Track Name: Glory, Glory
I had years to forget about you
and to set my demons free
But the road was long, dear, and I got lonesome
How much freedom does a body need?

So I came crawling back over Jordan
on my hands and bloody knees
How I wish I could say I’m sorry
But is that really all you need?

"Glory, glory, Hallelujah,"
I hear you singing in your sleep
Darling, I don’t know what you’re praying to
but could you send one up for me?

Time is wicked, the world uncaring
and kindness is the rarest light
and on some mornings, I wish you’d let me
slither back into the night

You never minded my cheap whiskey
or the tremor in my hands
I wish to hell I could keep from making
this bed my promised land

"Glory, glory, what a disaster,”
I sing softly as I watch you sleep
I was lost until you found me
but I have secrets I still keep

Glory, glory, hallelujah
since I laid my vision down
I am climbing Jacob’s ladder
since I laid my vision down
Track Name: Unwelcome Stranger
Unwelcome stranger,
you made my body your home
Felt your teeth in my bloodstream
and your hands on my bones

At first I grew stronger,
living and breathing for two
but your love grew heavy,
and clouded my view

Now I feel you rising in my lungs
I’ll suck the poison out in blackened tongue
That power in my veins was not my own
I’ll get you out if it kills me
At least I’ll die alone

Unwelcome stranger,
I am no longer your home
I won’t be your mirror
I’ll take the unknown

But I still feel you rising in my lungs
I’ll suck the poison out with blackened tongue
That power in my veins was not my own
I’ll get you out if it kills me
At least I’ll die alone
Track Name: This Town
This town’s been a hole in my heart
all the makings of a fire I can’t seem to start
always calling me home like a voice on the wind
a lover when all I needed was a friend

This town’s been a gun to my head
a lonesome choir singing a song for the dead
a cold white morning in a stranger’s room
harsh daylight when all I could bear was the moon

It’s followed me down and turned me around
haunted and heavy, far from sacred ground
But it’s sweeter than sin to know in the end
that the place you come home to don’t mind where you’ve been

This town’s been a comforting word
from an old friend who’s stories beat any I’ve heard
the color of the paint before all the rust
a promise I never quite learned to trust

It’s followed me down and turned me around
haunted and heavy, far from sacred ground
But it’s sweeter than sin to know in the end
that the place you come home to don’t mind where you’ve been
