Track Name: Gonna Be Leaving
Said it in the evening, said it in the afternoon, said I’m gonna be leaving
Gonna be leaving soon, gonna be leaving
Gonna be leaving soon, and the odds are even
You’re gonna be leaving, gonna be leaving
You’re gonna be leaving too

You’re the poison in the IV / rattlin the sabre, said it wouldn’t be,
Wouldn’t be easy / said it isn’t gonna be fair,
Are you gonna get angry? Gonna get even?
Are you gonna be leaving?
Gonna be moving on, are you gonna be, gonna be gone

[Odds are even] You’re gonna be leaving, the odds are even
Odds are even, you’re gonna be, gonna be gone
You’re gonna be moving on

And the odds are even / odds are even
You’re gonna be leaving, gonna be leaving
Gonna be leaving soon….
Said it in the evening, said it in the afternoon
Track Name: Ask Me No Questions
Ask me no questions and tell me no lies
Thought you were different than all the other guys
All I can see is the trouble in their eyes
All I can see is the devil in disguise

Been over and over and under and all around
I was no angel but I fell for this town
I gave it all of my money and all of my time
It was worth every penny – every nickel and dime
Track Name: Devil in the Deep
Devil in the deep blue sea
Bring my love back home to me
Now we whisper in the pale moonlight
Now we shiver in the dead of the night
Devil in the deep blue sea
The red sky was the death of me

Now we whisper in the pale moonlight
Now we shiver in the dead of the night

Like Daniel in the lion’s den, singing
Hallelujah, hallelujah amen
Sing it once, sing it once again
Sing hallelujah, hallelujah amen

There’s a devil whispering back to me
From the red sky and the deep blue sea
Now we whisper in the pale moonlight
Now we shiver in the dead of the night
When the waves are high, under a stormy sky
We started to dance, to the rhythm of the tide

Sing hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah amen
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah amen

Devil devil, again and again and again
Track Name: Leningrad
Fell in love with an autocrat
From the streets of Leningrad
Gave him everything I had
It wasn’t much at all
Just wanted a pretty face
A damsel in disgrace
I come from a better place
And I don’t have far to fall

Ooh

And in my hour of darkness I have often thought of you
Lie awake, toss and turn the whole night through
Ooh

Say goodnight to the open stage
Say goodnight to the empty page
In the dusk of the day and age
The light starts to fail
And when they ask for an autograph
I just had to laugh
At the unreliable fact
The undeniable tale

Ooh

And in my hour of darkness I have often thought of you
Lie awake, toss and turn the whole night through
Ooh
Track Name: Sparrow for a Heart
When I was young, I had a sparrow for a heart, and a redwing's eyes
And I left my home made of sticks and stones from the falling skies

Run, run, all the colours of the rainbow spun out, red green blue
Be still my heart, don't start, don't start bleeding too

When I am old would you carry my bones to the blood red sea?
Don't let the earthworms and carrion crows get the best of me
Green, green and red and blue were the colours no more
Only beating wings, a sparrow sings
and it makes my heart sore/soar
Track Name: Halfway to Mexico
Five hundred miles on the road ahead
FIve days now until I’m sleeping in my own bed
I didn’t ask, I wouldn’t know
Halfway to Mexico

And out on the highway, the sirens moan
Headlights and starry nights and I’m driving all alone
Five hundred down, five hundred to go
Halfway to Mexico

Ooh

So ask me no questions, tell me no lies
Make me no promises when we make our goodbyes
I wouldn’t mind if I didn’t know
Halfway to mexico

Ooh
Track Name: UFO Song
Woke in the dead of night taken by surprise
I saw a golden light fill the prairie skies
I couldn’t move, I was paralyzed

Out under the prairie moon, out on the vast horizon
It hung like an air balloon above the herd of bison
And then I saw it, rising

All the nights of my youth staring at the stars
I searched for a higher truth a better life on mars
Couldn’t help it if I tried
Couldn’t run run run and hide
When I saw it, I was terrified

I may be a prize fool taken for a ride
But I swear by the golden rule and by my foolish pride
I’d tell no word of a lie, cross my heart and hope to die
I wasn’t dreaming, I was terrified
Track Name: Runaway
Do you really wanna run away, run away, run away?
If I were you I know I wouldn’t wanna stay
If you think it’s so easy you can go ahead and try
Do you really wanna say goodbye?

Tell me tell me tell me tell me one thing I wanna know
Do you wanna love me, do you wanna let me go?
If you don’t wanna go you gotta know you oughtta stay
Do you really wanna run run run run run away?

Tell me tell me tell me tell me one thing I wanna know
Do you wanna love me do you wanna let me go?
If you don’t wanna go you oughtta know you gotta stay
Do you really wanna run run run run run run run run run away?
Track Name: Down by the Water
Where will you go my darling daughter?
I'm gonna live down by the water
If I ever could find the time, never no reason or rhyme
I’m gonna live down by the water

I'm gonna send a dozen roses
Down the river like baby Moses
And I'll wash my tears away when I’m down in the river today
I'm gonna a dozen roses, a dozen roses

And who will be your one and only
When the days are lost and lonely
And the little blue birds of spring go down to the river to sing
Who will hear their testimony?

Sing a little song, darling
Sing it like a little blue starling
In the country or the town and for miles all around
Sing a little song darling

Now the days are getting hotter
I'm gonna live down by the water
If I ever could find the time, never no reason nor rhyme
I’m gonna live down by the water
Down by the water, gonna live down by the water
Down by the water
Track Name: Little Noise
Where do you go when the going gets tough
Said you can’t get along, you can’t get enough
You can try try try again, but you can’t get enough

Out of the darkness and into the day
You can run, run and hide you can’t get away
Say try try try again, you can’t get away

Somebody raise your hand
Raise your voice
Get a little louder
Make a little noise

How do you sleep with your eyes open wide
Tearing at the seems, keep it all inside
Try try try again, keep it all in

Everybody raise your hand
Raise your voice
Sing it a little louder
Make a little noise

Get away, get away, get away, get away, get away
Track Name: Shape of a Mountain
Oh my heart is the shape of a mountain
Frozen peak, asleep in the snow
With the foothills and the valleys surrounding
Far, far below

My blood makes the sound of the ocean
Crashing waves that weep on the shore
And the tides are forever in motion
With nowhere to go

The rain in the desert, the frost on the vine
All the seasons have their reasons
And I have mine

My voice fills the walls of a canyon
A lonesome echo, deep and low
And this song is my constant companion
Wherever I go

And my song is the song of the highway
A siren’s wail, it calls and I go
Say goodbye, and I’ll be on my way
When the cold north wind blows

Oh my heart is the shape of a mountain
Frozen peak asleep in the slow
With the foothills and the valleys surrounding
Far, far below
