Track Name: The Letter
You wrote a letter I
Stayed up last night just
Thinking it over
And over again

It was a message
A call to action
From long ago
And the meaning the same

And in the middle of the night
You speak to me and say reunite for the
Common good and the common man
And our common country we’ll save

They always said it would
Never happen they
Made it clear that
Nothing will change, but

Now were here and your
Letter is clear and the
Meaning resounds
Like hurricane winds

And in the middle of the night
You speak to me and say reunite for the
Common good and the common man
And our common country we’ll save

A house divided will
Always crumble
Not by an earthquake
Or hurricane winds

But by a people who
Who will not listen
Inside a house
With walls paper thin
Track Name: Take It All (Or Leave It All Behind)
The birds are falling
Without warning from the sky

People are asking
Should I be wishing you goodbye

I should be frightened
But my fear is in disguise

You can take it all
Or you can leave it all behind

Have you suspicion
Running round your head at night

I have no answers
No guarantees of wrong or right

I asked a prophet
What she saw beyond my eyes

You can take it all
Or you can leave it all behind

Just don’t say your going to wait for
The time to feel just right

The time may never feel as perfect
As the way it feels tonight

I feel that you’re the only
The only one who truly knows

The humanity within me
Keep it close because it comes and goes

I don’t believe in
The fire and the brimstone

I put no faith in
The forever unknown

I won’t be frightened
Though my fear is in disguise
You can take it all
Or you can leave it all behind
Track Name: No Escape from the Train
My granddaddy was a trainman
Conducting the Worchester to Lynn
And my daddy taught me the same three chords
That his wandering father taught him

In the night times when I play those chords
And I feel so void of pain
In the whispering eyes and the fleeting replies
There’s no escape from the train

All aboard
This train runs on time
The dues have all been paid

When the whistle blows
And the band explodes
Your 4000 miles away

When the trainman returned
From 3 years on the rails

And the front door was locked
With a chain

He pulled out his guitar
And tuned up the strings

And he swore it would
cure every sin

And so it goes

I hear the sound of the 5:39
As the sunrise comes into view
Is the train I hold tickets for
The biggest distraction from you?
Track Name: Feels Like Home
Take me to the frontline
Somewhere inside of your mind
Let me make you my own
Make it feel like another home

Don’t forget to tell me
That you’ll never leave me
Somewhere I should never been
A game I can never win

The spirit of your voice keeps me warm
Help me find a place that feels like home

I’m out here on the frontline
And I cant afford to waste time
And your keeping me strong
Help me find the words to the song

No one says it’s easy
Can be so hard to please me
Sometimes the goodness inside
Can be so damn hard to find

The spirit of your voice keeps me warm
Help me find a place that feels like home

We chase the sunlight
No time for stagefright

I’m out here on the frontline
Where things are never too kind
And you’re turning me on
And you’re singing along

Don’t forget to tell me
Tell me you’ll wait for me
When the train is running slow
And I want you to know

The spirit of your voice keeps me warm
Help me find a place that feels like home
Track Name: The Reigning Blues
I could tell you a story
That could make you all weep
But you’d rather ignore me
With your conscience asleep

I could try to explain it
All the love that I feel
I could promise to keep it
I can’t promise it’s real

All this beauty just magically flows from her eyes
And when I’m in need it just magically rains from the skies
And I’m trying so hard to ignore the clock on the wall
‘Cause the moment I falter is also the moment I fall, I fall, I fall
Makes me wonder if it’s magic at all

I could tell you a story
A prediction of you
I could make it sound clever
You’d believe that it’s true

Should I try to explain it
And you look in my eyes
But the meaning is worthless
If it wears a disguise

I could tell you a story
You could show me the meaning
I could sing you a love song
You could give me a reason

I could give you my purpose
You could greet it with laughter
But I won’t give up search
To find what you’re after
Track Name: New York City
I’m driving on the left lane
Of a dark interstate

Following the street signs
To the Empire State

Her skyline through the windshield
Looks like the northern lights

New York City, girl,
You got all of me tonight

Oh take me to your doorstep
Let me rest my head on your floor
Show me all of your wicked ways
And I’ll show you mine
We’ll let ‘em shine
On through the night
In old New York

Last night I laid awake
And I though of you said

Why are you here with me
When you could be home instead

I told you that it was my style
To always be polite

New York City girl
You got all of me tonight

And I walked you to Penn Station
Trying to shrug off all temptation

But that look you gave
Just made me change my mind

Instead of one pass
I bought two

Straight to 7th Avenue

How intentions all
Become so intertwined
Track Name: Mrs. Farrow
3052 of us
We look east to the sun
And let the cold win claw our face
To our fallen one

The snare drum cuts the day in half
The bagpipes starkly weep
You are our latest hero
Lay down and go to sleep

Mrs. Farrow draped in sorrow
Mrs. Farrow needs tomorrow
Ohhhhh

Remember when we were in school
The final bell would ring
The way we jumped out of our chair
That moment was everything

Remember we were running home
Our papers in the wind
That smile could last eternity
Kept me from caving in

Mrs. Farrow draped in sorrow
Will there be enough tomorrows
You know she will not beg or borrow
Mrs. Farrow

Lay me down to rest, my friend
Let me sleep tonight
The echoes of my greatest self
Will start to make it right
Track Name: As One
She peacefully walks
With her hands clutching tightly
To something she caught in the wind

And when she gets home
She reads it alone
And the journey slowly begins

There is nothing that
I could do
If I could not
Do these things for you

I can’t be sure if fear’s not to blame
Have you ever felt the same

I live for the journey
Of make believe
Close your eyes and try to take aim

There is nothing
I could do
If I could not
Do these things for you

But it’s not over
We have only begun

We’re not older
But we are no longer young

We’re taking over
Run, run, run, run

We’re much bolder
Are hearts still beating as one?

There is nothing that
I could do
If I could not
Do these things for you
Track Name: Push On with No Regrets
When my troubles are too much to carry
And my sins are way past death
I’ll rest my soul and think of you
Push on with no regrets

My father he always told me
There’s a sin rooted deep in this blood
What I didn’t know then is what’s killing me now
Push on with no regrets

I’ve tried for the straight and narrow
Why I fail, I don’t understand
So I’m leaving today, and I may not be back
Push on with no regrets

When I think of the ones who loved me
When I think of the ones who cared
Since I’ve lost you there is no one else
Push on with no regrets

When the sun escapes the valley
And my soul is wearing thin
I’ll join in the chorus and sing my refrain
Push on with no regrets
