1.
Not a Whim 01:46
Not a whim So chalk it up To choke it down The bitter taste Sweet til it's gone There's many things that it could be But there's one thing it is not Not a whim
2.
Else 02:00
And when you wake I won't be there And when I wake You'll be somewhere And when I wake The same old sun And when you wake You'll wake someone Someone else, someone else Somewhere else, somewhere else
3.
More 01:36
Might be something out there better But can you know for sure Til you've opened every door You'll be wondering if you found it And what's more You might have had it before Same old jokes get old and tired Sights make your eyes get sore Even love can leave you bored There are things you'll never touch But I'm sure you've heard every chord That has ever been played for You and that keeps you Keeps you searching for Searching for more
4.
Birdy 03:44
How do you know Where to go When there's no Path to show I have noticed Where you're going Isn't far from Where you have been You want to be free As a birdy I see real nice trees But you won't land with me Just passing through It's written all over you Nothing I can do But watch the path you choose If you knew What you'd lose Would it change The way you choose I'd like to be In a movie Where it makes sense By the ending You want to be free As a birdy I see real nice trees But you won't land with me Just passing through It's written all over you Nothing I can do But watch the path you choose
5.
Your Love 01:57
Your love, your love Surrounds me Your love, your love Is out of reach Your love, your love I cannot keep Your love, your love Still follows me I still can't see Why it won't leave I feel you love In dreams When I open my Eyes I can't see I still can't see Why it won't leave
6.
Sleepwalking 03:49
I fell asleep for two whole months And I dreamt I was in love When I woke up it felt too soon Should you spend your time on dreams Even when they might not mean Anything Did you see me walking around With my eyes closed snoring loud And was I alone Alone In the morning when you wake The feeling for a moment stays And then goes away Pretty soon you can't recall How the feeling felt at all Or who it belonged to Did you see me walking around With my eyes closed snoring loud And was I alone

Get Along 01:30
I get along with you You get along with me So why is it that I can't get along alone I get a long way's off You get a long way's away So why is it that I can't get along here if I stay Get along alone, can't get along alone
9.
Trees in lines and the signs are easy here to ignore Pay no mind to the kind of stories you've heard before No black flies can change my mind that it's more than a detour I'm happy blind, happy to find only things that I adore When our time's up, I promise I won't stay in linger Just kindly point me to the door
10.
Walking 00:25
11.
After the fair Leaves the county haunted By summer plans left plans Prizes left wanted Same old drifts in How it always happens Cold on the wind The ending begins What's left of the grounds Swept up and gone No lost and found Weekdays march on Same old drifts in How it always happens Cold on the wind The ending begins
12.
Lilacs 00:56
13.
Tequila 02:51
You don't remember You don't remember Anything we were Anything we were
14.
Leaves 03:30
Harmony Send it to me I'm the bee Without a leash Hypothetically It could be so easy To not need to Have a key To sing to To be free Underneath The pile of leaves On the side Of the street Where I go jumping That's where there is something Made me think of you What used to be I thought of You and me In the pile of leaves There's a needle Or a key There must be more Than what meets The eye There must be
15.
Why would you want that Why want anything you don't need Why take something that you'll have to leave Why invite that That which leaves you wanting more When you know what you had felt like enough before
16.
Winter Count 01:54
Snow falling with no sound Stop me if you've heard this one before Thirty times or more When nothing seems easy And not just to me Why would it be Another winter count I think I'm running out Of room To tally every year And wonder what I'm doing here I still don't know
17.
Parlance 01:06
18.
Don't you wanna know If there's something to know And have something to show Have something to show
19.
Nadir 01:15
20.
Save It 02:56
Save it Old friend There's no Needing For your feeling So bad ever again So long To you There's none To do Now my time Is so long And what was ours Is all gone
21.
Spell 02:34
22.
Falling 01:55
Feel like I'm falling through Nothing to hold on to Do you feel like you're falling too Falling is fine for now But I start to wonder how Much longer I can fall If there's a bottom at all Where I come falling from They say you'll hit rock bottom But what if there isn't one I could fall on and on
23.
Know How 01:51
Can you choose your lovers Can you choose your friends Can you choose where it begins Or choose where it ends Can you choose to lose it Choose to let it go I'm not all here, you're not all gone Can't forget, can't hold on Street signs don't tell you Which way to go No way of knowing What you need to know Trees don't want nothing Life would not allow Would they get up and walk way If they knew how I don't know how
24.
Tattoo 02:04
If I never have one Would it be so bad Got no inspiration I just never had none Don't mean I don't want one Don't mean I don't try Just don't want to jump the gun I don't wanna lie If I were given one I would not deny If it were the right one I would say alright I'd say this one's right For the rest of my time
25.
Black Canyon 02:00
26.
Kings in the corner and there's no way around Tired of playing the only game in this town I've been playing from behind and down Trying to lose the only way that I've found I've been running like a basset hound When I'm running almost touching the ground I'll be better when I'm not around Trying to be a go-getter on a merry-go-round Let my cat out and burn my house down Sweep up the ashes into a hole in the ground There's kings in the corner and queens in their crowns And no way to win the only game in this town Kings in the corner Kings in the corner and there's no way around
27.
Shine 01:00
Can't find the right Right kind of light To shine On this life
28.
Even Out 02:41
I can hold Conflicting Ideas in my mind And that is why I can't decide I have been That guy They call indecisive And that's why I don't judge I believe It'll even out I believe it'll even out somehow I don't like to take sides Even when one's mine I can see your right to see me wrong Can't always have it Both ways and that is Where it starts To break apart, tip the scales but I believe It'll even out I believe it'll even out somehow In my mind I have no place to go And I cannot hold you now Long as I'm Holding on to my narrow Vision of how

Train Game 01:41
