Track Name: Let Your Hair Fall Down
Last night left some marks on you that I can see
With chapped up lips and a bruised up heart set on repeat
Grab me by the shaking hands let’s straighten the crooked out
And let your hair fall down

No one in this town will know our name
The sweat dries on your skin and it tastes like rain
Shake your dress loose bite my tongue let’s straighten the crooked out
And let your hair fall down

And if it happens all the time
What time is the right time to tell you?

Do you recognize a thing you see?
We passed this way before but it was in the Spring
Seems we’ve died a thousand times to straighten the crooked out
So let your hair fall down

And it’s about time we go too far far far
We're not hiding we're too far far far
There’s no coming back from far far far
Track Name: These Blues
Roll the sun back to you
Cast a spell on all you’ve owned
Nothing means much to you
Nothing you can’t drink alone

So listen before your time
Listen to all your lives
‘Cause you’ve spent a fortune in rhyme

There’s a river runs there
Where there's fog on haunted ground
Steel and autumn live there
Leaving traces in the ground

There’s a letter for you
In a mail truck somewhere
Some discarded future
Sent from here to nowhere

These blues
Swirling like the snow and then
These blues
Spinning like the stars and then
These blues
Breaking all our hearts again
These blues
