Begin Again 03:00
So here's what I know All the best things come crooked All the best things come out of their minds So let's dance do-si-do Don't sit down good lookin' We got silver and gold on the line So sugar don't cry Somebody needs the bed And I'm not looking to begin again I'm not looking to begin all that again Well we could drive through the cold Until the bedrock gets busted Or we could sit on our hands through the night And when the sun starts to cook All the laws in the book You and I we will still be just fine So sugar don't cry Somebody needs the bed And I'm not looking to begin again I'm not looking to begin all that again

B My Girl 03:34
I don't want you to be my girl I can get so out of control When I'm with you Everything comes out blue Walk away toes that I adore They can't let me down anymore Not coming for you They'll cross the street if I do I can love you endlessly But I know that it's just a fantasy I can't get you back with me Not for even a little cup of tea I don't want you to be my girl You can get so out of control When I'm with you We just can't follow through

Weight 03:45
I just wanna go back home Wake up in the morning when the sun is shining through my window Did you ever think that you and me could get so dramatic? So complicated? Weight on your shoulders We can never be back home together If there was something to say to save us I would have said it long ago Can't you read my mind and clean the house without me asking? You make me doubt and disbelieve myself and tell me that I'm crazy You need to stop smoking, I'm suffocating Weight on my shoulders We can never be back home forever Weight on your shoulders We can never be back home together

Piano 03:33
Hey there mister You saved my ass from jail I owe you little some A little something that’s not for sale I know I gotta get right But getting right’s all gone wrong Open my eyes I love those pretty songs I want to wave my hands in time I want the world to know your mine, dear If the piano in your house never gets played We’ll learn to play Hey there mister You pulled out all the shots The sirens are ringing But I’m not afraid of cops You bring me back home You bring me back safe and sound Open my eyes I'm coming back around I want to wave my hands in time I want the world to know your mine, dear If the piano in your house never gets played We’ll learn to play

Seaplane 03:31
Well I skimmed the surface but I stayed on top Floating there like a boat that dropped You looked at me like I was insane Like I’m the first man to ever land a seaplane The first man to land a seaplane Birds came up, dolphins too They wondered what this machine might do The radio calls from New York and L.A To the first man to ever land a seaplane The first man to land a seaplane Maps and measures they fall away into the waves Into the waves Birds of paradise and birds of prey, They look the same They all look the same There’s some kind of light when you smile like you do The water's all white and the air’s all blue There’s some kind of light when you call my name Like I’m the first man to ever land a seaplane First man to land a seaplane

It's not love in reality It's not love in reality You can't stay with me Don't wake up Give me one more day Just give up You can find a way Just another day You get a little bit of nothing You can't cover it all Holding back Never let you see through the crack Show no empathy to my misery Say goodbye to my magic bay With the tide that takes you away And leaves me aweigh You get a little bit of nothing You can't cover it all So you get a little bit of love It's never enough Thats what you get Little bit of nothing you cant cover it all It's a little bit of love It's never enough Little bit of nothing to cover it all

Well I’m a town born child I’ve got braces on my name And you can bet when I show up I bring all my ghosts with me Well I’m a town born son And when the morning comes I will wash off the dust of the Dreams that I never got done Now I’m keeping an eye out for you 'Cause you come from where I want to go to You got the melodies and music in your ear So sing this town born child away from here Well I’m a town born child And all my teachers knew my brothers And when I stepped into a classroom I was just like the others I’m a town born child But my mind’s been wondering out for a while And I never pushed fast or forward But I always could hold my tongue and force a smile On my own, driving home I dream of summer in the winter And when spring rolls on I skip my stones But never watch when they go under and down

Bead 02:31
The night burns me up The day burns me down I thought consequences Was something I'd drown In a watering grave Somewhere far off at sea But they drew a bead on me The man at my local He sure damn my eyes But when the sun sets I still miss Getting drinks there sometimes I was watching the weather Just to see what it'd do When I drew a bead on you Lady I can't lie And my ears they do ring I thought consequences Was something I'd chain up And sink to the bottom of a running by stream But they drew a bead on me They drew a bead on me

Trouble Came 03:06
Well I was steadfast And I was sane I was steadfast, honey And I was sane And the Book of Job kept ringing Ringing through my brain I was safe and I was careful Yet trouble it came Well I was watched over And I was true I was watched over, mama And I was true And I stayed out of folk's business And I stayed out of harms way I was safe and I was protected Yet trouble it came Little child with your head in the clouds You know there ain't no place to hide People get petty and people get proud So just open your arms out wide 'Cause there ain't no door been built that can keep it out There ain't no door been built that can keep it out And there’s not a wall constructed That will not fall away I was safe and I was careful Yet trouble it came
10.
Well the cards have been cursed And our band can’t rehearse The drummer can’t tell a four from a two And I know I lost my chance with you as soon as you arrived As soon as you saw how I was just A man without a moment, A man without a moment to lose Now it’s easy to bet It’s easy to just forget And buy a brand new pair of shoes But you know it’s never easy to be satisfied and fun Not to jump the gun When you're a man without a moment, A man without a moment to lose Sugar drips down from the mountain But it never drips down that far You can wish on a star or a fountain But you can’t wish away what you are Some men fall in traps And they get a bum rap If they’re too easy to see through But sometimes it’s not so simple to be honest and brave Not hide your love away When you're a man without a moment, A man without a moment to lose
