One day I'll come home and you'll be sitting here It'll be the way it was before you disappeared We'll share a cup of coffee, go about our days Well I can dream anyways I've tried to take this all in stride and do the right thing Live with a thorn in my side and ignore the sting Talk about the weather, anything but you It's all I can do It's six o'clock and the sun's coming up Red and crimson gold And before it heads back down again We'll both be another day old Birds don't know the difference As they fly out of view That you flew out, too --- --- Coffee grounds and mockingbird down Underneath my boots Sunshine and vitamins And gnarled cedar roots Nature's greatest paintings And stories from the moon Can't replace you

Move 04:09
When someone is gone You've gotta move on Don't lose your stride Just cause they're not at your side Doesn't mean you stop When something ain't right Don't cry in the night Don't dwell on the fears You Built up over years Don't hate yourself For something you can't control When you're out on the floor And your partner's no more Well all you can do is lace up your shoes And stand up and dance Being alone isn't so bad Cause it's up to you to be happy or sad It's up to you to stand up and dance Sometimes folks will leave us too soon Sometimes it snows in May and June Through it all don't lose the love in your heart Life has its own plans It's out of your hands Show love for all those Who are both friends and foes Take someone's hand and stand up and dance

Sometimes beauty comes from unsuspecting places Sometimes happiness hides in tears Sometimes love is lost in old, familiar faces Somehow I still love you after all of these years When you lose all your belongings And you’re treated unfairly unkind Hold on tight to the wisdom you know And I'll share with you my peace of mind Sometimes the handle’s too crooked to hold And some days the warmth of the world goes cold Some days you're left with all you were born with I'll love you just like we'll never grow old When sleep won't come in the morning And you fight to keep it inside You're still in control of all that you need And no strong men have anything to hide Sometimes beauty comes from unsuspecting places Sometimes happiness hides in tears Sometimes love is lost in old, familiar faces Somehow I still love you after all of these years

Framed 05:31
In boots of brown he circles around A body laying still on the ground He kneels down to see if the poor soul still breathes But he doesn't hear a sound What can you do when you're faced with the truth You can't tell me it'll all be okay Where can you run when you're framed with a gun And the people will surely want blood The deed's been done but he wasn't the one To take this unfortunate son His eyes tell his grief there's scorn in his teeth Truth be damned, they'll still have him hung What can you do when you're faced with the truth You can't tell me it'll all be okay Where can you run when you're framed with a gun And the people will surely want blood Run, run, run, run in the sting of the sun Run, run all day Run, run, run, run, your life's come undone You still can't run fast enough away So run fast to her, it's more than allure She's your only saving grace Sing your true song cause you can't sing for long And remember the lines on her face He runs to the woman who knows his good name While the sheriff takes his aim He falls in her arms; she hides her alarm The papers have given him fame What can you do when you're faced with the truth You can't tell me it'll all be okay Where can you run when you're framed with a gun And the people will surely want blood Run, run, run, run in the deafening night Run, til your legs give way Run, run, run, run for your life Run so you'll see the next day Eighteen miles West tattooed on his chest I'll love you til my dying day Face down in the grass they found him at last Just one girl remembered his name Just one girl remembered his name

In The End 03:38
No second chances; can’t take it back again All those letters--the ones I’ll never send You spend your life just trying to survive Those nights in Portland; endless hotel beds Work all day; the cycle never ends What does it mean? Will it matter when I’m dead? Will it matter when I’m dead? All my stories--the way I tell them Was I kind? Was I truthful? Did I love without fear? How will it end? I’ll have to die someday. Will you be here? Will you be far away? In the end, will it matter when I’m dead? Will it matter when I’m dead? When the earth is over--when there’s nothing left of us Will it have mattered when we chose to drink and cuss? Will our lives be written in the stars? No second chances; can’t take it back again If nothing else, I hope that we stay friends When I’m gone, will I matter in the end? Will it matter when I’m dead?
