Jolene 04:04
Cocaine flame in my bloodstream Sold my coat when I hit Spokane Bought myself a hard pack of cigarettes in the early morning rain Lately my hands they don't feel like mine My eyes been stung with dust and blind Held you in my arms one time, but I lost you just the same Jolene, I ain't about to go straight -- it's too late I found myself face down in a ditch Booze in my hair, blood in my lips A picture of you holding a picture of me In the pocket of my blue jeans Still don't know what love means, Jolene Been so long since I've seen your face Or felt a part of this human race I've been living out of this here suitcase for way too long A man needs something he can hold onto A nine pound hammer or a woman like you Either one of them things will do Jolene, I ain't about to go straight -- it's too late I found myself face down in a ditch Booze in my hair, blood on my lips A picture of you holding a picture of me In the pocket of my blue jeans Still don't know what love means, Jolene

Wild Horses 07:04
Childhood living is easy to do The things you wanted I bought them for you Graceless lady you know who I am You know I can't let you slide through my hands Wild horses couldn't drag me away Wild, wild horses couldn't drag me away I watched you suffer a dull aching pain Now you've decided to show me the same No sweeping exit or offstage lines Could make me feel bitter or treat you unkind Wild horses couldn't drag me away Wild, wild horses couldn't drag me away I know I've dreamed you a sin and a lie I have my freedom but I don't have much time Faith has been broken tears must be cried Let's do some living after we die Wild horses couldn't drag me away Wild, wild horses we'll ride them some day Wild horses couldn't drag me away Wild, wild horses we'll ride them some day

The other night dear, as I lay sleeping I dreamed I held you in my arms But when I awoke, dear, I was mistaken So I hung my head and I cried. I'll always love you and make you happy, If you will only say the same. But if you leave me and love another, You'll regret it all some day: You are my sunshine, my only sunshine You make me happy when skies are gray You'll never know dear, how much I love you Please don't take my sunshine away You told me once, dear, you really loved me And no one else could come between. But now you've left me and love another; You have shattered all of my dreams: When I'm asleep dear, I know you leave me When I awake my poor heart pains. So when you come back to make me happy I'll forgive you, I'll take all the blame.

Evenflow 04:11
Freezing, rests his head on a pillow made of concrete again Feeling maybe he'll see a little better set a days Hand-out, faces that he sees time again ain't that familiar Dark grin, he can't help when he's happy looks insane Even flow, thoughts arrive like butterflies He don't know, so he chases them away Someday yet, he'll begin his life again Kneeling, looking through the paper though he doesn't know how to read Praying, now to something that has never shown him anything Feeling, understands the weather of the winters on its way Ceilings, few and far between all the legal halls of shame Even flow, thoughts arrive like butterflies He don't know, so he chases them away Someday yet, he'll begin his life again Whispering hands, gently lead him away

Clocks 05:14
The lights go out and I can't be saved Tides that I tried to swim against Have brought me down upon my knees Oh I beg, I beg and plead singing Come out of things unsaid Shoot an apple off my head And a trouble that can't be named A tiger's waiting to be tamed singing You are You are Confusion never stops Closing walls and ticking clocks Gonna come back and take you home I could not stop that you now know singing Come out upon my seas Cursed missed opportunities Am I a part of the cure? Or am I part of the disease? Singing You are You are You are You are You are You are And nothing else compares And nothing else compares And nothing else compares You are You are Home, home where I wanted to go Home, home where I wanted to go Home, home where I wanted to go Home, home where I wanted to go

Summertime 03:40
Summertime and the living's easy Catfish are jumping and the cotton is high Your daddy's rich and your mama's good looking So hush little baby, don't you cry One of these mornings, you're going to rise up singing Then you'll spread your wings and take to the sky But until that morning, nothing can harm you With daddy and mama standing by

Angel 07:04
Spend all your time waiting for that second chance For a break that would make it okay There's always some reason to feel not good enough And it's hard at the end of the day I need some distraction, oh beautiful release Memories seep from my veins Let me be empty, oh and weightless and maybe I'll find some peace tonight In the arms of the angel fly away from here From this dark cold hotel room and the endlessness that you fear You are pulled from the wreckage of your silent reverie You're in the arms of the angel, may you find some comfort here So tired of the straight line and everywhere you turn There's vultures and thieves at your back The storm keeps on twisting, you keep on building the lies That you make up for all that you lack It don't make no difference escaping one last time It's easier to believe In this sweet madness, oh this glorious sadness That brings me to my knees In the arms of the angel fly away from here From this dark cold hotel room and the endlessness that you fear You are pulled from the wreckage of your silent reverie You're in the arms of the angel, may you find some comfort here

I was bruised and battered, couldn't tell what I felt I was unrecognizable to myself Saw my reflection in a window, didn't know my own face Oh brother are you gonna leave me wasting away On the streets of Philadelphia I walked the avenue till my legs felt like stone I heard the voices of friends vanished and gone At night I could hear the blood in my veins Just as black and whispering as the rain On the streets of Philadelphia Ain't no angel gonna greet me It's just you and I my friend And my clothes don't fit me no more I walked a thousand miles just to slip this skin The night has fallen, I'm lyin' awake I can feel myself fading away So receive me brother with your faithless kiss Or will we leave each other alone like this On the streets of Philadelphia

I can only imagine what it will be like When I walk by your side I can only imagine what my eyes will see When your face is before me I can only imagine Surrounded by Your glory, what will my heart feel Will I dance for you Jesus or in awe of you be still Will I stand in your presence or to my knees will I fall Will I sing hallelujah, will I be able to speak at all I can only imagine I can only imagine when that day comes And I find myself standing in the Son I can only imagine when all I will do Is forever forever worship You I can only imagine Surrounded by Your glory, what will my heart feel Will I dance for you Jesus or in awe of you be still Will I stand in your presence or to my knees will I fall Will I sing hallelujah, will I be able to speak at all I can only imagine I can only imagine when all I will do Is forever, forever worship you I can only imagine

I was a liar I gave in to the fire I know I should've fought it At least I'm being honest Feel like a failure 'Cause I know that I failed you I should've done you better 'Cause you don't want a liar And I know, and I know, and I know She gives you everything But, boy, I couldn't give it to you And I know, and I know, and I know That you got everything But I got nothing here without you So one last time I need to be the one who takes you home One more time I promise, after that, I'll let you go Baby, I don't care if you got her in your heart All I really care is you wake up in my arms One last time I need to be the one who takes you home I don't deserve it I know I don't deserve it But stay with me a minute I swear I'll make it worth it Can't you forgive me? At least just temporarily I know that this is my fault I should've been more careful And I know, and I know, and I know She gives you everything But, boy, I couldn't give it to you And I know, and I know, and I know That you got everything But I got nothing here without you, baby So one last time I need to be the one who takes you home One more time I promise, after that I'll let you go Baby, I don't care if you got her in your heart All I really care is you wake up in my arms One last time I need to be the one who takes you home (la li he) I know I should've fought it At least I'm being honest (yeah) But stay with me a minute I swear I'll make it worth it, babe 'Cause I don't wanna be without you (Oh) So one last time I need to be the one who takes you home (takes you home, babe) One more time I promise, after that I'll let you go Baby, I don't care if you got her in your heart (babe) All I really care is you wake up in my arms (wake up in my arms) One last time I need to be the one who takes you home (yeah) One last time I need to be the one who takes you home
