Track Name: Little Man
goodbye, little man
you flew your ship straight into the sun
say goodbye to your little plans, it might take years to see what you've done

walk away fast, don't look over your shoulder
the boulder of your failure looms large

say the blame rests elsewhere
whatever gets you through the day
but you know and i know it didn't have to end this way

walk away fast, don't look over your shoulder
the boulder of your failure looms large

defeat rests readily upon your broken heart
it's like you always knew that this all would fall apart
taking stands are heroes, of which i am not one
but you're just so pathetic, something must be done

so get back here fast and square up your shoulders
the boulder of your failure looms large

throwing it in the ocean's gonna be hard

or walk away fast, don't look over your shoulder
the boulder of your failure looms large
Track Name: Nellie
oh, nellie, why do you keep comin' by
when you know my locks are busted
i see your eyes, good proof that you're still gettin' high
all red and encrusted

with the coal that you stole from your mother's dresser drawer
in the night while she was sleeping
you're lookin' slim, but your eyes are growing dim
in the company you've been keeping

but all i can see is the teapot you threw at me
broken china, you never were
i once knew a sweet girl
but you ain't her

can that be right, lord he's finally seen the light
say hello to the life i've been livin'
some things change, but mostly all of them stay the same
all your answers have been given

with hands in the dirt and head full of hurt
waiting for life to come and find you
but it's only fear that keeps you here, drownin' in this broke down town
i'm just another tie that binds you

yes, all you can see is whatever comes easily
no goin' far for no far out limb
i want a real man, and you ain't him

well you just call it like you see it
goin' on 'til all the goodwill's gone
just hear truth as I say it

that our love is like the summer,
i can't think about us did and done
but fear may make me betray it

oh won't you tell me true
that you can stand me being me
i'll work on letting you be you
so we can stand as one 'til kingdom come

between you and me,
it don't always come easily
broken china on the kitchen floor
you are mine, oh won't you let me be yours
Track Name: House1667
see that old, rundown house by the side of the road
she called it home for years and years but that was long ago
she used to sit in her favorite chair right inside that window
listening to kids and music and every sound that makes a house a home

he loved, he kissed, he worshiped, he adored
and her life ended when he left without using the door
now his suits walk on men he’s never met before
but she slept in the same bed for two years more

and with a new coat of paint it could look just the same
as it did when we played in that yard three games of croquet
or when we pulled in late on Christmas after driving all day
or when we packed her up and moved her away
Track Name: Country Livin'
escaped from the city
with my car and my clothes,
i swore off the whiskey
and the cold

now I rise with the sun
do what needs to be done
then I head to the porch
for a smoke

well, it’s all well and good
i ain’t doin’ no harm,
i’m just searchin’ for
country livin’s charm.

cigarrette in your lips
with your crimson dress on
you knew every word
to every song

singin’ “say you won’t leave me,
I won't do you wrong”
i know it ain’t easy
life is long

then curl me up
inside your arms
and we'll go searching for country livin’s charms

and i know it ain't easy
your daddy won't be happy
he had other ideas
but the one thing i know
is you do what you must
with whoever you trust
and if you gotta go, you gotta go

so say you won’t leave me,
i won’t do you wrong,
i know it ain’t easy
life is long

I’ll curl you up
inside my arms,
and we’ll go searching
for country livin’s charms
Track Name: Wait
all i can handle, all i can bear
is that you just stop and i just stare
let's take this slowly while you bring me up to speed
i'm not the one you want, am i the one i need?

let it sink in before you let yourself out
just be with me while i learn to be lonely

well, i may be an animal but my instincts reign
i wanna hurt you back and make you feel some pain
but i'll just hold on tighter while you try and let me go
you're not the one i thought, am i the one i know?

let it sink in before you let yourself out
just be with me while i learn to be lonely

i don't think it will be too hard
to learn to fall apart
come on, baby, don't depart
'til i have a fully broken heart
i'm trying hard to learn this art
of flames and failure and false starts
be a dear and do your part
help me with the weight of this heavy heart

all i can handle, all i can bear
is that you just stop and i just stare
let it sink in before you let yourself out
just be with me while i learn to be lonely
