Track Name: Beautiful Mistake
you had the bluest eyes that I've ever seen
I was eighteen
flying down 95
it was late in July

and I don't know what to do with my life
but I could fight all night
it's illusion it's all fake
beautiful mistake

I bought you a drink
smoked a cigarette
lit the sky
you held up your hands in fists
and said you don't want me like this

and I don't know what to do with my life
but I could fight all night
it's illusion it's all fake
beautiful mistake

you said to find god there's just one way
get on your knees and pray
but I don't believe in a faith
that tells me who to love and hate

and I don't know what to do with my life
but I could fight all night
it's illusion it's all fake
beautiful mistake
Track Name: Meteor
Well it took me ten days
ten messages left to say
do you want to watch the stars fall on my..birthday?
and I almost didn't show
I'm a runaway
turn the key
drove through that fog bank

and there we lay
watching the sky
waiting to find you
your hands were cold
held up to nights shore
meteor

and I may have overheard
you talkin about her
and i ignored you
but lookin back now
I just said I was cold
that was a lie too
and I caught my first light
heroin to my eyes
and all this fuss and fight
disappeared

and there we lay
watching the sky waiting to find you
your hands were cold held up to nights shore
meteor
Track Name: Vespertine
sky blue
you left while she cried for you
and you busted down the coast
with only a bag of rope
and a memory like stone

Vespertine
you were everything
damn that computer screen
and all that never sleeps
Vespertine
you had everything
you had me sweet thing
but now I'm leaving in the morning

tight rope, fish nets
you carry a pocket knife and day dream with it
one cut and she would fall
bring a circus to its knees
and refund the souls of all

Vespertine
you were everything
damn that computer screen
and all that never sleeps
Vespertine
you had everything
you had me sweet thing
but now I'm leaving in the morning

and I'm gonna find you
I'm gonna make you mine
I'm gonna end this
stick needles in the main line
yeah i'm gonna do this
drink your blood like wine
not gonna stop till
you promise to come back this time
Track Name: Little Indian Girl
there's a little crack of light
wild she climbs up high
there's no boundary lines
little Indian girl
rides through the night

and I confide
living on mountain tops by firelight
oh what a lucky life
it'll be alright
it'll be alright

there were lightning bugs till three
till gram and gramps gave you electricity
there were no boundary lines
little Indian girl rides through the night

and I confide
living on mountain tops by firelight
oh what a lucky life
it'll be alright
it'll be alright
Track Name: We're Over
we started off
you wanted me
and I was gone
can't always get what we want
the tables turn
I just want to get real
I just want to feel

I thought we were on
you say maybe tomorrow
so much to go wrong
you want to lead not follow
and I'm thinking were done here
but you don't want to say we're over

now every song
that you played for me
just makes me feel
sick listening
the tables turned
I just want to get real
yeah I just want to feel

I thought we were on
you say maybe tomorrow
so much to go wrong
you want to lead not follow
and I'm thinking were done here
but you don't want to say we're over

and I know
the letter I wrote
to you was blinding
lets play hide and seek
so you cant find me
sometimes flying feels like I'm falling
and I don't want to fall for you again

I thought we were on
you say maybe tomorrow
so much to go wrong
you want to lead not follow
and I'm thinking were done here
but you don't want to say we're over
Track Name: No Cryn'
you asked me out
it was a Tuesday
and I was just sayin how I never get asked
you called me up said I was lovely
but your lines seem to fade so fast
two weeks went by
it was like I was walking a tightrope sky high
when every bone said stay away

cause I'm not cryn' anymore
heard you were holdin hands with her
at the concert
and you knew I'd see
but I'm not surprised
that you're sleepin with the city

not everyone we fall for
will fall for us
bartenders advice at dusk
so keep the whiskey comin
so I can sleep again
just sing me a luulabuy
I don't care if I drink this whole bar dry
just make me forget how our lips
coincide

cause I'm not cryn' anymore
heard you were holdin hands with her
at the concert
and you knew I'd see
but I'm not surprised
that you're sleepin with the city
Track Name: Gypsy Heart
She was a gypsy
she came and went
burrowed there bones in wet cement
traded stories for post card cents

and he was a fly frozen in the snow
stuck like an arrow without a bow
she said die
or go back home

and she saddled two kids on her wide hips
took back her lung and breathed inside it
as he fell apart
and she cut two straps
tied her hair back
broke her dress
and climbed up the mast
sailed her gypsy heart

she slept in a bus
he moved in a flat
wonder if shes ever going back
tracing veins her body a map

and she saddled two kids on her wide hips
took back her lung and breathed inside it
as he fell apart
and she cut two straps
tied her hair back
broke her dress
and climbed up the mast
sailed her gypsy heart
Track Name: Big Sur
the road was windy
as we drank out of beer bottles
til the six pack was through
and the sun was falling on the mountains
I ordered it neat like you
there was a full moon over head
wait for this part in the song
it makes you feel like flying I said
yeah it makes you feel like flying I said

and then you looked back at me
and placed your hand in mine
seconds well they whirled by
and I thought maybe I got you this time
well fishes rarely learn how to fly
and you ignore my songs
and right or wrong
you're gone

you said you have to show ID
you look like you're 17
and I'm looking for more maturity
said can you just be
good with me
coming and going
coming and going


and then you looked back at me
and placed your hand in mine
seconds well they whirled by
and I thought maybe I got you this time
well fishes rarely learn how to fly
and you ignore my songs
and right or wrong
you're gone

and maybe you could a find
a way to stay close
cause every time you go
I can't wait here for you
to come home


and then you looked back at me
and placed your hand in mine
seconds well they whirled by
and I thought maybe I got you this time
well fishes rarely learn how to fly
and you ignore my songs
and right or wrong
you're gone
Track Name: One Day
We sat in that cafe
speaking, spinning
and there was a baby on the way
one day, one day

he said he didn't want it this way
should I go or should I stay?
"I'm sorry" you say
one day, one day

and lullabies are strange
close up or far range
he's not, but you're ok
one day, one day
