ENJOY THE VIEW

Have you had it all
Have you had enough
In a California freeze-out
Everything feels rough

I know I know
Where you want to be
Follow your heart back to Tennessee

(where) Every star in the sky will shine for you
Every dreamer that died, survives in you
What a beautiful life you’re rising to
Don’t close your eyes, enjoy the view

Is it far away
Are we wasting time
Like another life or only
Several thousand miles

I know I know
The perfect remedy
Follow your heart back to me

(where) Every star in the sky will shine for you
Every dreamer that died, survives in you
What a beautiful life you’re rising to
Don’t close your eyes, enjoy the view

Every star in the sky will shine for you (every star in the sky)
Every dreamer that died, survives in you (every star in the sky)
What a beautiful life you’re rising to (every star in the sky)
Don’t close your eyes, enjoy the view (every star in the sky)
Don’t close your eyes, enjoy the view (every star in the sky)
Don’t close your eyes

 

 

ENOUGH BAD LOVE

I had one go and bring me way down
Crying on my knees, crawling on the ground
And that’s enough bad love

I had one make a mess of me
Six months on the couch watching TV
That’s enough bad bad love

Well that’s enough bad love for one lifetime
I crawled through the dirt and the hurt and the slime
I gotta close that door, get real tough
Cause that’s enough bad love yeah
Enough is enough

I’m worth more than a hard lifestyle
A burned out look, a who-are-you smile
That’s enough, bad bad love, bad bad love

I’m gonna keep all my money cancel all bets
Throw out the wine and the stale cigarettes
That’s enough, I’ve had enough

I had enough bad love for one lifetime
I crawled through the dirt and the hurt and the slime
I gotta close that door, get real tough
Cause that’s enough bad love yeah
And all you liars you cheaters too
Don’t call my name I’m through with you
Gonna find more joy, all that stuff
Cause that’s enough bad love yeah,
Enough is enough

 

 

DREAMS COME TRUE

Soft like a river like a cloud
Soft when there’s no one else around
And angels see the sweet things that you do
Dreams come true

Hush as you give your heart away
Hush, cause there’s nothing you should say
And after all, the world’s a good place too
Dreams come true

And after all the world’s a good place too
Dreams come true

 

 

TOGETHER ALONE

I like the feel of your thigh through the hole in your jeans
I heard you breathe in slow, I know what it means
We just moved right out of the safety zone
Cause that’s what happens when we’re together alone

Well, you turn me on baby like a slow burning diesel
Stab me one more time with that sweet needle
Just a hard hot jab all the way to the bone
Cause that’s what happens when we’re together alone

Well it’s cold outside but it’s hot in here
I can feel the sweat and the tension and the beer
Let me take this time to make things clear
I want it to happen don’t you want this to happen

Hey baby love like this can really transcend guilt
It’s the way I was made, it’s the way that you’re built
And now it’s much too late for a chaperone
Cause that’s what happens when we’re together alone

I want it to happen don’t you want this to happen

Hey baby love like this can really transcend guilt
It’s the way I was made, it’s the way that you’re built
Yeah, you move my body like it was your own
And that’s why we gotta keep getting together
And this is nothing any decent-minded folks condone
And that’s why we gotta keep getting together
It’s just a cave man craving that we can’t disown
But you know that’s why we gotta keep on getting
Together Alone

 

 

IRONWOOD

All the love I feel for you
Fills me up but scares me too
Leaves me worn and black and blue
My baby my baby my baby

And a woman surely knows
How this world can steal your soul
And leave a rage you can’t control
My baby my baby my baby

It’s a broken love
With a cold metallic taste
Call a doctor, call a doctor, call a lawyer
Let it be erased

But I know your heart is good
Clad in steel and ironwood
And you’d fix us if you could
My baby my baby my baby

It’s a broken love
With a cold metallic taste
Call a dr. call a dr. call a lawyer
We’ll lay it all to waste

All your love’s a cold, cold kiss
There’s no warmth or tenderness
Ain’t it hard to live like this
My baby my baby my baby

 

 

ARIZONA

Hey do you remember Arizona
Two brown white kids with Indian head-gear on
Lean and tan and strong
Tearing through the Canyon

And didn’t no one try to tame us
Back when every rock was treasure that we’d find
I held your hand in mine
Your hand was so much smaller

Did I ever tell you why I had to run away
There’s so much I didn’t say

Cold, with the pain of growing older
When all you see is how the magic dies
Leather cracks and dries
And fades away forever

Did I ever tell you that I know I let you down
I see things different now

I see your open pale blue skies
While mine are getting clearer
See your life was just like mine
A brother like a mirror

Now how I stumble while explaining
You’re a grown-up and I’m growing all the time
Struggling to find
A place like Arizona

Did I ever tell you that I miss you every day
You just feel so far away
There’s so much I didn’t say

 

 

PRETTY LITTLE BIRD

Out my window every day I see
Pretty little bird in a great big hanging tree
Dancing free
Not like me

Well I used to know someone just like you
Pretty little thing who would dance around the room
All in blue
just like you

but I won’t feel lonely

pretty little bird won’t you fly yourself away from here
there’s a big blue sky and a lullaby to dry all my tears

she was ten years old and how that child could sing
but her daddy when he’s drinking gets real mean
he got awful mean
and that gun fired clean

But I don’t feel lonely

pretty little bird won’t you fly yourself away from here
there’s a big blue sky and a lullaby to dry my tears
pretty little bird won’t you find a place the sun still shines
you could sing it strong, your pretty little song and fly fly fly

I ain’t sorry for a single thing I done
Put a man in the ground and I told that girl, run run

pretty little bird won’t you fly yourself away from here
there’s a big blue sky and a lullaby to dry my tears
pretty little bird won’t you find a place the sun still shines
you could sing it strong, your pretty little song and fly fly fly

pretty little bird won’t you find a place the sun still shines
you could sing it strong, your pretty little song and fly fly fly

 

 

SLIMEBALL

Well he’s a slimeball baby He’s dirty and he’s mean
Slimeball baby sadistic and obscene
I met him in a phone booth he asked me for a dime
The man was such a slimeball I didn’t know it at the time
He spoke to me so smoothly he spoke to me so well
That this slimeball baby put me under his spell

And he’s done so many bad things yes he’s treated people wrong
I could list a million bad things I could write a million songs
I could call a million lawyers but here I digress
For I too have done bad things, I too must confess
You can lock me in a jail cell you can throw me in the joint
But with this slimeball baby I reached my breaking point

It was one of those days he’d nearly beat the dog to death
He’d been lying to his mama he’d been smoking chrystal meth
I was hiding in the bathroom I was getting ready to run
When I suddenly remembered hey this slimeball’s got a guna
Now I’m not a vengeful person but I’m sure that you can see
I had to pull it on him before he pulled it on me

I knew just where he kept It in the kitchen in a drawer
So I crawled into the kitchen with my belly on the floor
And I’d never fired a pistol lord I’d never held a gun
But this was cold smooth steel, a colt 41
And I took it in my hands and I felt it give me strength
I knew just what I had to do I did not have to think

He was sprawled across the couch with his feet up in a chair
He was watching Jerry Springer, he was drinking him a beer
But he dropped it when he saw me, his eyes were all agog
I said I’m leaving you baby and I’m taking the dog
Then I lifted up that pistol and I aimed it at that man
But then angels up in heaven they bestowed on me a plan

So I grabbed me up some duct tape and I grabbed me up some rope
I tied him to the chair and I picked up the remote
And I turned it to the channel that was all day shopping
And later in the evening they ran Spanish soap operas
I think he called me something thru the tape I couldn’t tell
I said sianara slimeball I’ll see you in hell

And he’s a slimeball baby ladies take care/ Cause these slimeballs baby they’re out there everywhere
Don’t let them get too close, don’t let them feed you lines
Cause you might just pull the trigger and you’ll wind up doing time
If you think you’re with a slimeball let me offer you this plan
Find out where the gun is keep the duct tape close at hand

 

 

WEDDING DAY

I’m waiting on our wedding day
When we will finally be as one
And all my longing will be done that’s what I say
And all my longing will be done

I’ll wear a dress of snowy white
Find me a shawl of borrowed blue
You should be looking fancy too your coat and tie
Darling you’ll be looking fancy too

Ain’t no tragedy gonna hinder me
I’m set to have our wedding day

I still remember when we met
How you had longing in your eyes
Promised me a love that never dies that’s what you said
Promised me a love that never dies

Ain’t no tragedy gonna hinder me
I’m set to have our wedding day
Ain’t no war machine gonna take you ‘way from me
We’re gonna have this wedding day

(instr. Verse)

and tho’ our wedding bed is cold
and tho it smells of earth and clay
I know they will mark our wedding day in marble stone
I know they will mark our wedding day with dust and bone
Darlin’ we shall have our wedding day

 

 

WHISKEY DOES IT BETTER

It’s not that I won’t love again
Forget the music of your laughter
It’s not that time won’t ease my pain
It’s just that whiskey does it faster

And I’ll survive this broken heart
No there isn’t too much damage
It’s not like I fell apart
It’s just that whiskey helps me manage

You might think that you just laid my life to waste
Smashed it up in little particles
But I drink whiskey for the taste
Just like you read Playboy for them articles

(instr. Break)

You might think that you got off scot free
But wait till your new girlfriend gets my letter
It’s not that time won’t comfort me
It’s just that whiskey does it better
It’s just that whiskey does it better
You know that whiskey does it better
