Track Name: Ode to a Rock Dove
WHY WOULD YOU GO
I HEARD THEY PAVED IT ALL
LONDON, PARIS
FORGOTTEN LONG TIME AGO
I JUST WANNA ROLE
ON OVER YOU KNOW
HE WAS A SOUL THAT LEFT WITH THE WIND
A LONG TIME AGO
NOW IT'S 3:15 ON A WEDNESDAY
AND I'M FINDING IT HARD ENOUGH
SO I WRITE YOU ODE
TRY TO TELL YOU YOU'RE BEAUTIFUL
JUST LIKE TONY AND ANNIE
DOWN BY THE SEA

THE WAVES PULL US UNDER
MAYBE IT'S YOUR MOTHER
MAYBE YOUR UNCLE, MAYBE YOUR DADDY
OR MAYBE IT'S ME
BUT IT AIN'T YOU ONLY
JUST THE IDEA MAKES YOU LONELY
SEASON CHANGE
TWO WEEKS AND A DAY
IT CAN SEEM SO LONG
NOW IT'S 4:18 ON A FRIDAY
AND I'M DIGGING A HOLE UNDER THE MOON
SO I WRITE YOU ODE
TRY TO TELL YOU YOU'RE BEAUTIFUL
JUST LIKE TONY AND ANNIE
DOWN BY THE SEA

OH AND ANNIE MARIE
WELCOME TO THE END
Track Name: Luck and Drive
I PUSH MYSELF
RUB MY RABBITS FOOT
PERSEVERE
KNOCK TWO TIMES ON WOOD

IF YOU'RE HEARING THIS TONIGHT
IS IT RIGHT PLACE OR RIGHT TIME
THINK I CAN TELL YOU WHY
IT'S JUST LUCK AND DRIVE

I KEEP A HORSESHOE BY THE DOOR
BURN A CANDLE AT BOTH ENDS
THERE'S A BUNNY IN THE YARD
MY FINGERS CROSSED
PLATES IN THE AIR

IF YOU'RE HEARING THIS TONIGHT
IS IT RIGHT PLACE OR RIGHT TIME
THINK I CAN TELL YOU WHY
IT'S JUST LUCK AND DRIVE
BROUGHT US HERE TONIGHT

SO HOW DID WE GET HERE
HOW'D YOU GET THERE
HOW MANY LIVES
THE BLOOD, THE SWEAT, THE TEARS

IF YOU'RE HEARING THIS TONIGHT
IS IT RIGHT PLACE OR RIGHT TIME
THINK I CAN TELL YOU WHY
IT'S JUST LUCK AND DRIVE
BROUGHT US HERE TONIGHT
Track Name: The Sea
SOME DAY REAL SOON
I'LL WAKE
YOU'LL BE GONE
BUT I WON'T BEG YOU TO STAY
I WAS RAISED THAT WAY

SOME DAY REAL SOON
THEY'LL WAKE
YOU'LL BE GONE
THEY'LL ASK WHERE'D YOU GO
I'LL TELL EM YOU'VE GONE HOME

IT'S A SHAME THAT THERE'S AN OCEAN IN BETWEEN
LEAST NOW IT'S THE SEA
NOT YOU AND ME
THAT'S TO BLAME FOR ALL THE DISTANCE IN BETWEEN
WE CAN TRY LIKE HELL BUT JUST CAN'T BLAME THE SEA

SOME DAY REAL SOON
YOU'LL WAKE
IN THAT OLD PLACE
AND YOU'LL WONDER WHAT HAVE I DONE
AND I'LL WHISPER....
SHHH

IT'S A SHAME THAT THERE'S AN OCEAN INBETWEEN
LEAST NOW IT'S THE SEA
NOT YOU AND ME
THAT'S TO BLAME FOR ALL THE DISTANCE INBETWEEN
WE CAN TRY LIKE HELL BUT JUST CAN'T BLAME THE SEA

WE CAN TRY LIKE HELL BUT JUST CAN'T BLAME THE SEA
THE SEAS NOT LISTENING
Track Name: Eye to Eye
WAKE ME, WHEN IT'S MORNING
CAUSE THIS DAYS TO LONG
AND THERE'S TOO MUCH GOING ON
I JUST CAN'T FIND THE WORDS
REST YOUR HEAD TOO BABY
WE'LL TALK AGAIN COME DAWN
SEE THERE'S TOO MUCH GOING ON
AND I JUST CAN'T HEAR YOUR WORDS

SEE I CAN BEAR ALMOST ANYTHING
I CAN BEAR THE WEIGHT OF THE WORLD
BUT I JUST CAN'T TAKE IT BABY

I LIE AWAKE SOME TIMES
WITH US ALL ON MY MIND
AM I DOING IT WELL?
BEING A GOOD MAN?

SEE I CAN BEAR ALMOST ANYTHING
I CAN BEAR THE WEIGHT OF THE WORLD
BUT I JUST CAN'T TAKE IT BABY

WHEN YOU AND ME, JUST CAN'T SEE
EYE TO EYE
Track Name: Rearview
THERE'S GOLD IN THEM HILLS
HITCH YOUR WAGON TO A HORSE
AND GO JOIN ALL THE FOOLS,
KILLERS , THIEVES, AND VAGABONDS

THERE'S A NEEDLE IN THE HAY
WHERE ALL THE DREAMERS PLAY
YOU KNOW, ALL THE FOOLS
THE LUCKY AND HAVE IT ALLS

THERE'S A SONG IT THAT GUITAR
AND YOU ALL KNOW IT WELL
IT'S A SONG ABOUT THE FOOL
AND ALL THOSE THINGS HE SAID

CAUSE WHEN IT ALL COMES DOWN
AND YOU FALL BEHIND
WILL YOU BE THE ONE YOU THOUGHT YOU'D BE
IN THE REARVIEW

THERE'S A SKY THAT'S FULL OF STARS
BUT I'M DOWN HERE ON THE GROUND
DOWN HERE WITH THE FOOLS
DANCING IN MY LOVERS ARMS

CAUSE WHEN IT ALL COMES DOWN
AND YOU FALL BEHIND
WILL YOU BE THE ONE YOU THOUGHT YOU'D BE
IN THE REARVIEW
Track Name: Stars They Shine
SOME STARS THEY FALL
OR NEVER GET SEEN AT ALL
SOME THEY JUST FADE AWAY
BURN OUT AND GO BLACK

CAN YOU FEEL IT COMING BACK?
THE REASON IT ALL BEGAN
THAT LOVIN' WITHOUT A PLAN
IT'S TOO LATE TO TURN BACK

SOME STARS THEY SHINE
BURN OUT BEFORE THEIR TIME
HOLD YOUR WISHES AND DREAMS SO TIGHT
LEAD SAILORS THROUGH THE NIGHT

CAN YOU FEEL IT COMING BACK?
THE REASON IT ALL BEGAN
THAT LOVIN' WITHOUT A PLAN
IT'S TOO LATE TO TURN BACK

YOU, MIGHT BE A MOON
MAYBE A STAR?
MIGHT BE MY ROCK 'N' ROLL
YOU, MAYBE A MOON
MIGHT BE A STAR?
BUT YOU'RE LEADIN' ME HOME

I DON'T WANT TO FALL
THE VIEWS TO NICE FROM HERE
COULD I STAY A WHILE?
WON'T YOU LET ME?
PLEASE, DEAR?

YOU, MIGHT BE A MOON
MAYBE A STAR?
MIGHT BE MY ROCK 'N' ROLL
YOU, MAYBE A MOON
MIGHT BE A STAR?
BUT YOU'RE LEADIN' ME HOME
Track Name: Your Weight
I KNOW YOU THINK IT'S MY FAULT
LIKE I WROTE THE WORDS TO THAT SONG
I GUESS I SHOULD SOME BLAME

I KNOW YOU THINK I SHOULD BE SORRY
FOR THAT REASON I AM
BUT I CAN'T SHOULDER YOUR SHAME

SO YOU CAN KEEP
YOUR OLIVE LEAF
THERE'S NO BRANCH AND NO TREE
BIG ENOUGH FOR HER, FOR THEM, OR FOR ME
OH CAN'T YOU SEE?
THAT'S ALL YOUR WEIGHT


I KNOW YOU THINK THAT IT'S MY FAULT
TOO BLIND TO SEE
WHO WROTE THE WORDS TO THAT SONG
OH NO, I WON'T SHOULD YOUR SHAME
THAT'S ALL YOUR WIEGHT
ALL THOSE MISTAKES
THOSE BRIDGES IN YOUR WAKE
THAT TIME SHE YELLED
Track Name: Planes
THERE'S A HOLE IN MY HEART
HAS A NAME, JUST LIKE YOURS
THERE'S A HOLE IN MY SOUL
HAS A FACE, JUST LIKE YOURS

A PLANE FLIES OVERHEAD
ONE MORE TIME AGAIN

AND THERE'S WOUNDS
THAT JUST WON'T CLOSE
AND THERE'S MILES, BUT NO ROADS

A PLANE FLIES OVERHEAD
ONE MORE TIME AGAIN

CAN YOU SEE ME, FROM ON HIGH, WHILE i WAVE?
YOU PASS ME BY AGAIN
LOOK DOWN THROUGH ALL THE CLOUDS, WHILE I WAIT
STILL WAITIN' NOW
IT'S ALL IN VEIN AGAIN

A PLANE FLIES OVERHEAD
ONE MORE TIME AGAIN

THERE'S BOY WHO'S TRAPPED
INSIDE HIS MIND
STARING AT THE SKY
A BOY WHO'S TRAPPED
WATCHING PLANES FLY BY
WON'T YOU SET HIM FREE?
Track Name: Good Mornin' G'Day
I BEAR WITNESS
TO THE CHANGING SEASONS
THE DIFFERENCE
SEEMS TO BE HER ONLY REASON
SO I COUNT THE DAYS
UNTIL SHE, COMES ROUND AGAIN

THE SENTENCE
SEEMS TO RUN ON AND ON
LIKE THE DISTANCE
FROM THE DUSK UNTIL THE DAWN
SO I COUNT THE WAYS
SHE, KEEPS ME ROUND AGAIN

WHEN YOU SAY GOOD MORNING
IT'S A GOOD DAY
GOOD MORNIN'
G'DAY

SO I BREAK DOWN
LEARN HOW TO SYMPATHIZE
NEVER KNEW JUST WHAT IT LOOKED LIKE,
LOOKIN' THROUGH YOUR EYES
YOU GOT ME
GOT ME SPINNING ROUND AGAIN
YOU TAKE MY BREATH AWAY

WHEN YOU SAY GOOD MORNING
IT'S A GOOD DAY
TOUCH WITHOUT A WARNIN'
IT'S A GOOD DAY
WHEN I SEE YOU SMILIN'
IT'S A GOOD DAY
WHEN YOU SAY I LOVE YOU
