Track Name: Three Quarter Moon
Rain fallin' all around me
Cold winter movin' in
You're holding me so tightly
Like velvet on my skin

I love to look at you
in a three-quarter moon
Light shines around the outside chance
In a three-quarter moon

Where were you in the meantime
While everything was vague
How did you see through
My lifelong masquerade

I love to look at you
in a three-quarter moon
Light shines around the outside chance
In a three-quarter moon
Track Name: Anything
The thunder came in the dead of night
Daddy said we'd be in for a fight
He held my mama, as he calmed her fears
And I saw her tears

When the dam broke, the waters came
We prayed for mercy in the driving rain
I asked my daddy would we be okay
And I can hear him say

Anything you want from me
I would sail across the darkest sea
Hugs and kisses all for free
Anything you want from me

A week went by and the flood backed down
We had better luck than some in town
When the thunder had me scared in my bed
Daddy always said

Anything you want from me
I would sail across the darkest sea
Hugs and kisses all for free
Anything you want from me
Track Name: Did You Tell Her
I know you left me for another fool
Will you deceive her like ya did me
Did you tell her that it feels so good
to finally find someone you can talk to

And did you tell her
that you think she's the real thing
And did you tell her
that I was also real
Did you tell her
the mornings come too soon when she's by your side
Why don't you tell her how you lie

Pity goes along with my contempt
for the woman that you chose to take my place
Did you tell her that you were meant to be together
for the rest of your days

And did you tell her
that you think she's the real thing
And did you tell her
that I was also real
Did you tell her
the mornings come too soon when she's by your side
Why don't you tell her how you lie
Track Name: All My Life
Tucked away in a quiet winter night
Trusting you like an easy lullaby

You've seen the ghosts of my past
Still you believe in me
It feels like I've love you for all my life

When I was younger I knew the way to get by
Then you came along and made me see it right

I don't regret how I've lived
My heart's not that easy to give
It feels like I've loved you for all my life
Track Name: Cannonball
Without your chain
you're nothing at all
but a cannonball

And when I shoot you
I don't care at all
Where you fall
How desperately you call
Cannonball

I don't wanna lose you
I don't wanna lose nothing at all
I won't be your clown in a wedding gown
Cannonball

Without your chain
you're nothing at all
but a cannonball

You would have taken me
and caged my heart
'til death do us part
and I'm left
with nothing at all
a cannonball

I don't wanna lose you
I don't wanna lose nothing at all
I won't be your clown in a wedding gown
Cannonball
Track Name: Red, Black and Blue
If you hold down the battery
Planes diving overhead
Troops are dying in the trenches
In the eyes of a young boy
It's a war we won't win

Ears ringing from the blasting
And all my letters unreadable
Any hope unbelievable
But I'm a good soldier
I'll never complain

Oh my heart
Dreams are over long before they start
I love a stateside boy who looks like you
And I don't know what I'd do
If he didn't make it through
Red, Black and Blue

And if you click on the Superbowl
Everybody's having a grand ol' time
There's these parents on the 50-yard line
They don't look that happy to me

Looks like fire up ahead of us
Locals walking by a burned-out bus
Eyes devoid of any trust
It ain't no simple thing
To live this way

Oh my heart
Dreams are over long before they start
I love a hometown boy who looks like you
And I don't know what I'd do
If he didn't make it through
Red, Black and Blue
Track Name: Here Today
I felt you here today
I know it's crazy
But it felt that way
And it's bittersweet and out of line
Out of reach and we're out of time
I know I felt you here today

I felt you here today
Out from under all your fine decay
And it's never cold
Never kind
Never weak
And never blind
I know I felt you here today

I felt you here today
Did you suffer in those dying days
Did you dream a dream
Sing a song
Sing for love
or just sing along
I know I felt you here today
Take a trip
Ride along
Take a chance
Right or wrong
I know I felt you here today
Track Name: One Good Woman
Was it just a little something to remind me of you
And am I wrong if I believe
that you'll just go on doing things you used to do

Did you take a vow of silence that was too hard
Can you walk ahead alone
or are the voices calling
begging you to stay

Can it be that the little things are forgotten
all hid away
And I know you'll remember me in a moment
Oh baby, what do ya say
Well baby this must not be your day

I can't let go

No I can't leg go of you baby
We spent some time I can't forget
I can't find a reason why
People gotta break apart and practically die
You're gonna miss it
You had the love of one good woman

And I know that I'll see you out from time to time
It's too mean to be living here where you are
Oh baby, what do ya say
Well baby this must not be my day

I can't let go

No I can't leg go of you baby
We spent some time I can't forget
I can't find a reason why
People gotta break apart and practically die
You're gonna miss it
You had the love of one good woman
Track Name: Shame on the World
One to find
One to hold
One to miss his one-year-old
One more year in the fiery sun
One more moment and my burden's done

And you can't take away what I had just now
No, you can't take away what I had just now
I see their souls in the lids of my eyes
Bones to dust and the heavy sighs

Shame on the World

And the prophets, they lay dead in the ground
Dead and buried, without a sound
And the hold-outs fight for another bad day
Watch the clouds go sailing away

Shame on the World
