Track Name: Keep Looking Back
I'm in no hurry.
I'm gonna take my time.
This walk this walk this walk will only,
well it's only gonna last so long.

Keep looking back, Oh brother.
Keep looking back at me.
Though I'm moving forward, I don't move fast you see.
Keep looking back, Oh brother, or you might lose me.

I lift my head,
I take in the scene.
It's my choice my choice my choice to
Make this rushed or serene.

It's your will. It's your way.
Stop you or slow you, I will not.
But I can not be expected to match you stride for stride,
bring you humor, ease your pride
because you are on your own. I am on my own.
We all start and finish this journey alone.

Just because I'm moving slowly
don't mean I'm not looking ahead.
And the time we spent together is not something I will forget.
I'm just taking it all in as I get to where I'm meant.

So keep looking back, Oh brother.
Keep looking back at me.
Though I'm moving forward, I don't move fast you see.
Keep looking back, Oh brother, or you might
Keep looking back, Oh brother, so you don’t lose me.
Track Name: Wolf
The wind is cold as it hits my face.
I feel the lines my tears have traced.
I walk down some quiet street, praying for anything to distract me.

Shoulda known you were a wolf, I should have known.
Shoulda known you weren’t good all on my own.
Can’t believe I didn’t see it when I looked into your eyes:
Sweet, smart, kind was all part of the disguise.
Oh oh oh, you were wearin’ wool
But you were a wolf, and I should have known.

Couldn’t pick a better time to be leaving,
Put a big old ocean between us.
I gotta get to a new place, my head’s not working so well these days.

Shoulda known you were a wolf, I should have known.
Shoulda known you weren’t good all on my own.
Can’t believe I didn’t see it when I looked into your eyes:
Sweet, smart, kind was all part of the disguise.
Oh oh oh, you were wearin’ wool
But you were a wolf, and I should have known.

I put you up on a pedestal, thought every word you said was wise.
You were the one who was supposed to know better.
Yeah you could have thought twice,
But I can’t give you all of the fault.
It was my choice to let you in at all.

I shoulda known!

I shoulda known you were a wolf, I should have known.
Shoulda known you weren’t good all on my own.
Can’t believe I didn’t see it when I looked into your eyes:
Sweet, smart, kind was all part of the disguise.
Oh oh oh, you were wearin’ wool
But you were a wolf, and I should have known.
Track Name: Spin
I spin and spin, I spin and spin, I spin and spin around.
Crash and I fall down.

I'm not so good at standing still.
Prefer my feet pounding the pavement.
In every direction, I'm running fast.
Gets my heartbeat going just like love, without all the mess.
It's a win-win, so 

I spin and spin, I spin and spin, I spin and spin around.
Crash and I fall down.

I wonder if life could be better measured in trains,
or bills, or worn out shoes, or learning first names.
Cause time doesn't seem to do it justice,
and I could use a lot more of it,
but it runs thin, so

I spin and spin, I spin and spin, I spin and spin around.
Crash and I fall down.

There's only one place I've found peace so far.
Time stands still in this tiny music bar.
The beer and the songs, they soothe my soul,
a respite from the storm I know is waiting for me when I go.

And then, it begins again.

I spin and spin, I spin and spin, I spin and spin around.
Crash and I fall down.
Track Name: Goodbye Cruel Friend
You turned my world
so I walked with my hands.
You laughed in my face as I told you my plans,
saying, "girl you can't even stand."

I raced and I raced to keep up with your stride
Now I'm veering left and I'm leaving this behind
Yes I've resigned

We're at the end of our road
and I will admit what we both know.
Who's to stay and who should go?
I know I'm leaving here alone.
The path I take will be high and narrow
so I am leaving you the load.

You held my hands tight as you pulled me from the light.
I hit the ground hard when you let me go
and you buried me in this hole.

But you forgot to account how the sun always comes out,
and with its rise in the east I would rise to my feet,
And I'd find a way to leave.

Goodbye cruel friend,
you did not think I could bend.
Were you surprised I found a way out?
Goodbye cruel friend,
you did not see this would end,
But love is not something I can live without

We're at the end of our road
and I will admit what we both know.
Who's to stay and who should go?
I know I'm leaving here alone.
The path I take will be high and narrow
so I am leaving you the load.
Track Name: Every It
I want to travel the world.
I want to be madly in love.
I want to maintain all my high expectations and be inspired by those who measure up.
Can I have it?

I want to travel the world.
I want to be madly in love.
I want to be grateful for all that I’ve got and for all that I’ve got to feel like more than enough.

I don’t know what I need anymore but I know what I want.
I want to take every path where it leads and let the good pile on.
I want every it I can fit inside my hands.
I want to have it all if I can.

I want you to know what I’m thinking, exactly what goes on in my head.
Then there would be no misinterpretation and you would know of all my good intent.
Can I have it? Can I have it?

I don’t know what I need anymore but I know what I want.
I want to take every path where it leads and let the good pile on.
I want every it I can fit inside my hands.
I want to have it all if I can.

I want to have it all, to carry it without falling.
All may not be what I need but I want it. I want it all!

I don’t know what I need anymore but I know what I want.
I want to take every path where it leads and let the good pile on.
I want every it I can fit inside my hands.
I want to have it all if I can.
Track Name: Quits
The rain started right on time tonight
It'll mark the changing of my mind
From now on how I'll
feel about you.

I turn around, and it turns out you’re not behind me.
You're callin it quits at the three mile marker
Convinced that you'll fail if you try to go farther
I don't think that's true
But I’m not waiting on you.

What you call “bad luck,” I call “growth”
But I always err on the side of hope
It's why I
Held on to you

I turn around, and it turns out you’re not behind me.
You're callin it quits at the three mile marker
Convinced that you'll fail if you try to go farther
I don't think that's true
But I’m not waiting on you.

You could be so much more than you’ve settled into,
But if its only me who sees what good does that do?

I can't carry you
I don't want to carry you
I didn't know you before but now I do

I can't believe this whole time you weren't right behind me.
You're callin it quits at the three mile marker
Convinced you'll fail if you go any farther
I know that's not true
and I’m done waiting on you

I can't carry you
I don't want to carry you
I think I jumped in this too soon

I can't carry you
I don't want to carry you
I didn't know you before but now I do
Track Name: Sweet, Sweet You
Some might call me garish. I have been called good.
The only thing I’d call myself is a little misunderstood, except by you.

There’s a man throwin’ nice words at me, says I should take what I can get.
I think he means to mean alright, he’s just not articulate. Not like you.

Three weeks, three weeks, can we put this on a loop?
Me being the best me I’ve seen and you being sweet, sweet you.

Was it enough time to know you? I am less sure ever day.
And as it passes on by, I feel further and further away from you.

(ch)

I’m not ready, I
I’m not ready, i
I’m not ready to let you go.
