Track Name: A Way With Words
Well my baby's got a way with words
And Lord my savior comes around every now and then
Crawl inside my bedroom where you sleep
And come inside and preach the gospel to me

On the way that exodus I find
And dig my heart out like a gold mine
Hold me in your arms so tightly
And squeeze the love just right out of me

Misbehaved I held my head down low
And turned my grave and waited for to die
And caught some looks from some unwelcome eyes
And made it through to the other side

Well my baby's got a way with words
Says, you've got everything that you deserve
So crawl inside my bedroom where you sleep
Come inside and preach the gospel to me
Track Name: French Broad
I swept needles of the porch for you
Crossed my arms and folded laundry too
I used to open up the blinds for you
I got wasted all the time with you

And we got married on the banks of the French Broad underneath mandarin skies
And I told you I would change in the shaddow of the range that stretched on behind

I tied the hook onto the line for you
I cast the bait into the lake and spun the reel
You said that everyone was kind to you
You said that everyone was blind except for you

And we got married on the banks of the French Broad underneath mandarin skies
And I told you I would change in the shaddow of the range that stretched on behind
Track Name: Better Days
Lately I've seen better days, the fog that hides the window panes is long gone
And constant climbing altitude has leveled out and cruises like it's supposed to
And I hold it steady as I check the flight plan
And I wonder if I'm doing right by you

Way above these clouds I see the earth and all the oceans bend so softly
The heavenly geometry, a thousand years is not enough for me
And I start to feel like I could fall apart now
Living history one hour at a time
Track Name: Dead in the Water
Tried to be a mystery
Kept getting caught dead in the water
I've got a feeling in my bones about you

Tried to relive history
But kept getting caught in your voicemail
Just call me back it's not important, I swear

Written out apology
Never quite as good as the real thing
I stole a flower from the neighbor next door

Tried to be a mystery
Kept getting caught dead in the water
I've got a feeling in my bones about you
Track Name: Strange Thing
I saw her house last week, so quiet on the hill
And I wandered around until I found the key
The heat was off for weeks, and not a sound I heard
I saw the air I breathed, I stole a painting she did

And I feel a strange thing coming my way
And I left a strange thing far behind

I turned on all the lights, I sat down on her couch
I saw her shoes by the bed
I caught the light from the shade and laid down just to rest my head

But I feel a strange thing coming my way
And I left a strange thing far behind
