Track Name: Fire and Rain
It took a while to figure out,
The only way we're getting out,
Is with hard work, or not at all.

And you were holding out your hands,
And you were trying to understand,
How it all works,
How to get there first.

Through all the fire and rain,
That was coming our way,
All the fire and rain.

It took a while to figure out,
The only way we're getting out,
Is with hard work, or not at all.

Through all the fire and rain,
That was coming your way,
All the fire and rain.

Through all the fire and rain,
That was coming our way,
All the fire and rain.

Coming our way.
Track Name: John Henry
You know I've been crying,
Tears that ain't mine,
For John Henry's blues.

Down by the big bend,
He stared the future down,
And it killed him in the end.

A steel working man,
Better watch out,
They'll replace you if they can.

Down by the big bend,
He brought the hammer down,
But not back up again.
Track Name: Daughter
Daughter of mine, don't be like me,
Lord, I've been trying, to get myself clean.

You know I cared for you,
I should have been there for you,
When you were mine, to lose.

I wish, I'd been stable, willing and able,
But I have seen some shitty things, happen to human beings,
And the world seems to shift beneath my feet.

You know I cared for you,
I should have been there for you,
I guess you were mine, to lose.

You know I cared for you,
I should have been there for you,
I guess you were mine, to lose.
Track Name: Black Moon Reprise
I waited for, the whole black moon to weep,
I waited for, this whole damn town to come out and see,
I felt my whole life, suspended in the make,
It seems our whole lives, it's been getting in the way,
I've been your other guy, come and back, tell me that you're mine,
I'm barely getting by,
What a thing for you to do with your time.

This could be the only one I found,
Not the only one around,
This could be the only one I found.

Well it gets so hard, tell me how we let it get this far,
Why's it get so hard? Tell me when they landed you your part.

This could be the only one I found,
Not the only one around,
This could be the only one I found.

Tell me when they crossed you out,
Tell me when they crossed you out,
Like a black moon rise, spreading across the floor,
Like the one I love, running out the door.
Track Name: Crossfire
It was you caught in the crossfire,
It was you I'd seen before,
It was you left by the road side.

I had heard it through my window,
I was listening to the cars,
I had found it in my childhood,
It had followed me pretty far.

There was someone on the roof,
Asking for some truth,
And the nightingale birds song,
Almost sounded like the truth.

It was you, It was you, It was you.
Track Name: Jake
My friend Jake staring at the ceiling,
Said I'm making it up just to share the load,
We were just kids, I never noticed,
They were writing down every word he spoke.

I was 1 of 2, I never felt good about it,
They really wanted you, you know.

All the way home, All the way home,
All the way home, All the way home.

This border town sure looks good in the sunshine,
On the higher ground where all the swings are still broke,
I opened, made my, mark on, one side,
To feel right, for the first time.

All the way home, All the way home,
All the way home, All the way home.

I never wanted you, to lose anybody,
But it was getting late, and we had to run.

All the way home, All the way home,
All the way home, All the way home.

My friend Jake said 'You've gotta see this',
And we laughed out loud while it was still a joke.
Track Name: Somewhere in Between
We live out by a great wall,
Beyond the reach of the birds,
It can be days before,
I say ten words.
We hold each other closer now,
But how would you know?
When its too hard, too far to go,
Or somewhere in between.

Sometimes I notice,
It slipping away,
I'll make it through tomorrow,
If I make it through today,
After all that's been said,
It got hot out there on the line,
Now you must show me whats mine,
Before I'm satisfied.

But how would you know?
If you've never seen,
It get too hard, too far,
Or somewhere in between.
