Pushing 40, what have you got, a few cool guitars A dog and a rabbit, a record collection and a broken down truck.

Tough Tough Tough act to follow He's not all yours, even those he's a not mine I've blazed trails and I've climbed mountains I hear you panting your'e dragging behind

When I get to the border I don't walk, I go three blocks to Avenue Revolution I get so excited it will be so much fun. Tijuana Haircut Tijuana Haircut Mom and pop they gave me a big heap of cash to get em souvenirs like some blue glass Mexican Vanilla, get something for yourself come back empty handed you know they're gonna yell

The Sea 03:11
Some people feel so satisfied. They feel so empty and free. I go through life feeling empty inside Cuz I much rather live in the sea. Much rather live in the sea, rather live in the sea Much rather live in the sea.
5.
There's something reassuring. Knowing you're around. Something so enduring. I just can't figure it out. I tell myself every Sunday not this week. But by the time Thurs comes I hold on till Friday or even Saturday night Why do I call you up when by myself I feel alright Everybody Needs Someone to Think About Everybody Needs Someone to Think About I see you all curled up feel your body pressed up to me it's just my imagination but I still feel heat but reality is not as kind as make believe I'm always happy when you come. Always come when you leave. Everybody Needs Someone to Think About Everybody Needs Someone to Think About I know I'm losing you and you're losing me We're both waiting for the other one to set us free but your my piece of pie and I'm your reward Catch the crumbs off the table and put them on my fork Everybody Needs Someone to Think About Everybody Needs Someone to Think About Someone to dream about Someone to cream about

Time heals all wounds Close your eyes it will be over soon Absence make hearts grow fond dreams that sprout in your backyard Biding time drives you out of your mind Minutes pass they feel like days Darkest hour so they say It's worth the wait Hold on Hold tight. Don't spoil your appetite Be wise. Like a sage. Good wine improves with age. Get to a place you need to take a turn Look both ways. Live and learn Your mind says stop your heart says go Take that road. Take it slow. It's worth that Patience is a virtue you don't posses. Try not to settle for second best Thirst to quench. Hunger to satiate. Just hold on it will be worth the wait. Worth the wait.

Fly Home 04:05
Little bird why do you fly so high. I can see you flying up in the sky. Always wanting to be the best. I've saved a place for you in my nest. Little bird what have I done to you. You know I was wound up tight. I know that was not alright. I wish you would come home tonight. Fly home. Fly home. Catch a ride on the nearest cloud. You clipped my wings so I can't fly. Now i'm just a regular guy. Bound to soil and dry land. Come back home lets make ammemds. With a wing and a prayer you'll come back if you care. Then we'll come back home to roost, we'll fly home.

You Can't Have my heart You can't have my soul There is only my body This is just rock and roll You can't share in my dreams. You can't come inside. But if that's enough Come over tonight These are the terms between me and you. Our bodies can mingle but mine is hollow for u. If that's enough come over tonight. You can't have my heart but it might be alright. You Can't Have my heart You can't have my soul There is only my body This is just rock and roll You can't share in my dreams. You can't come inside. But if that's enough Come over tonight

Long Ride 04:41
I know you didn't tell me but I saw it on your face It's not the things you said but it's the things you didn't say it's a telltale sign like a giveaway it's a crack in the wall This is a game but I try not to keep score as pieces rearrange on the checker board been through some good times, been through some bad in the end he'll fade out like the bright of day We'll wonder what came along and stole our light away. Sha la la la la la Sha la la la la la The things you didn't say Sha la la la la la Sha la la la la la The things you didn't say

Silence can be golden. Other times it's just brown. I like to be by myself but sometimes I wish you were around. There's great big empty space. It's kind of hard to define. Sometimes I don't rest easy. Other times I find peace of mind. Sometime I feel so lonely. I just break down and cry. Just me, myself and only. Watching the clouds roll by. I am like an empty jar. Need contents to fill me up. Then my cup runneth over. There's no more room in that cup.
