Track Name: Call Me Back Home
We keep on saying the same thing every time that we meet
Of all the streets in the city, of all the kids in the street

Come on and drink up, we know how this ends up

Sing me a song, soft and low
with words of a long time ago
When I’m on the road, out on my own
I need something there to call me back home

My head is stuck on the same tune, we listened to all through the night
I listen and slowly I think back, imagine you’re here by my side

Come on and drink up , we know how this ends up

Sing me a song over the phone
So I know you're sleeping alone
When I’m on the road, out on my own
I need something there to call me back home

Come on and drink up , we know how this ends up

Sing me a song over the phone
So I know that I'm not alone
When I’m on the road, out on my own
I need something there to call me back home
Track Name: Heat of the Day
Drove cross the desert all night in the rain

Windmills stood still while the radio played
warmth of the sun, The chill of the night
I’m staying out and sleeping just fine

I came all the way to Arizona
Just to hear them say I shoulda told ya, wait
Til the heat of the day fades


I pushed my luck, when it ran out
I pushed my love and my fear and my doubt
Tired hands, willing head, making my way to a stranger’s bed

I came all the way to California just to wish away
For Arizona, when the heat of the day fades

Sometimes I’m lonesome, but I never cry
I lay my head back and I open my eyes


I came all the way to California just hear them say
I shoulda warned ya what happens when the heat of the day fades

What happens when the heat of the day fades
Track Name: Run Like the Devil
Tie them up and let em go, why do you always let them go
Stick with the devil that you know, that you know

I know you want to run away
No one to tell you what to say
It’s a game that you play, that you play

It’s written everywhere today
Nobody got away
So you better close your eyes when you pray

Open up, open wide
Feel the dark, see the light
You can run but you’ll leave the rest behind

In the wings before the show
You just can't let it go
Heaven only knows, only knows

If you could slowly fade away
Track Name: Two Things
Now I lay down, tomorrow I will go
Where the nightbirds sing up in the trees outside my old window

There are two things that I know, just two things for me
The river shining in the sun and his voice singing sweet

Found my love one day, I’d follow anywhere
She led me to the city and seven summers we spent there

There are two things that I know, just two things for me
The snowfall on the mountains and his hand upon my knee

The rain fell on the city to flood the avenues, and when it cleared my dear, confessed she was no longer true

There are just two things for me, two things that I know
Just the wind that dries my tears and sighs the love that I let go
Track Name: Up Above My Head
Up above my head, up above my head
I hear music in the air, I hear music in the air
Up above my head, up above my head
I hear music in the air, I hear music in the air
Up above my head
I hear music in the air
And I really do believe
I really do believe

There's a heaven somewhere


Up above my head, up above my head
I see trouble in the air I see trouble in the air
Up above my head, up above my head
I see trouble in the air I see trouble in the air

Up above my head
I see trouble in the air
And I really do believe, I really do believe
There's a heaven somewhere
Track Name: Wasted
They say youth is wasted on the young
The same truth I tasted on your tongue
When all your wine’s been drunk, your songs have been sung
I’ll still remember, I’ll remember

The brightest smile and the darkest eyes looking at me
I knew it had to crash down all around me

Come on get dressed and put your makeup on
I’ll pick you up and we’ll dance the whole night long
You won’t feel the time spinning on
Cuz you’ve got forever, you’ve got forever


Stayin out and stumbling in late
Crash out on my floor and smoke on the fire escape

You said this is the best place I’ve ever been

All the eyes on you, but you don’t see
The only thing you want is to be free
I could keep you safe and company
But you’ve got forever, yeah you’ve got forever

Come over here, I wanna see you closely
I wanna know how you pulled one over on me
I can still hear you when you sayin

This is the best place I've ever been
Track Name: Quite the Same
You can ask the neighbors about a funny thing
That happened to the trees that line up and down the street
They’ll tell you that light doesn’t dance upon the leaves
Cuz nothings quite the same since you’ve been gone

Nothing’s quite the same
I find it hard to wrap my brain around a world that doesn’t spin for you
Nothing’s Quite the same ask the birds, ask the rain
Someday they’ll find a way to carry on

I saw something on TV, a strange phenomenon
The scientists said little bugs have simply up and gone
All the bees are buzzing in a minor key
Cuz nothing’s quite the same since you’ve been gone

Nothing’s quite the same
I find it hard to wrap my brain around a world that doesn’t spin for you
Nothing’s Quite the same ask the birds, ask the rain
Someday they’ll find a way to carry on
Track Name: On the Slide
I'm on the slide
Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide

I can make all your dreams come true
Look me in the eye, would I lie to you?
Time it takes for the sun to rise
I'll be somewhere else with a new disguise

I'm on the slide
Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide

Used to be in that cat bird seat
Gold on my fingers, leather on my feet
Hit the bricks, going nowhere fast
Under the gun now, nothing good can last

I'm on slide nowhere to run, nowhere to hide
Track Name: Tus Besos
Fue una noche de fiesta, me levante sin cabeza
Me han dicho que me pasaria
Esto, que todo se ilumina

Hay tantas cosas que veo, no se lo que hare
No me importa lo que me quede, si me quedan tus besos

En la calle donde caminas, rascacielos como montañas
Subire con las mas altas
Ire, ire ire a las lejanas

Toma mis brazos, son para abrazar
Toma lo que quieras, soy para tomar
Muevete con el ritmo del mar
Baila a mi ladito sin pensar
Track Name: Seven Bridges Road
There are stars in the southern sky
Southward as you go.
There is moonlight and moss in the trees
Down the Seven Bridges Road

Now I have loved you like a baby
Like some lonesome child,
And I have loved you in a tame way,
And I have loved you wild

Sometimes there's a part of me
Has to turn from here and go
Running like a child from these warm stars
Down the Seven Bridges Road

There are stars in the southern sky
And if ever you decide you should go,
There is a taste of time sweet and honey
Down the Seven Bridges Road
