Track Name: I'd Never Tell
I walk with keys,
They're not for me
Holding on to Mother's dreams
and Daddy's history
I walk with hands
They aren't like yours
They aren't like yours
I'd never tell
I'd never tell
And in the silence of my truths
I admit to

Feeling so unprotected
Dealing with roots that I've rejected
Two feet on different floors
Never anyone to tell secrets to
I'm only half connected
Waiting for the other shoe to fall down
You look so unaffected
Dancing in your pretty pretty dress, like, oohhhh

Don't send me postcards
Where my blood runs so thick
This land is your land
This land is mine -
All I need is a paper to do the trick
Daddy bussed your table
Momma tucked your kids in bed
So I could live a better hell
I'd never tell
I'd never tell
And in my silence I am free of Country
I'm feeling

I'd never tell
I'd never tell
it's not like you knew me well
I'd never tell
I'd never tell
It's not like it would do you good
walking around with a hood on
with people out there calling themselves God

So pretty, so nice
Living here comes with a price(tag)
And in the silence of my truths
I admit to

Feeling so unprotected
Dealing with roots that I've rejected
Two feet on different floors
Never anyone to tell secrets to
I'm only half connected
Waiting for the other shoe to fall down
You look so unaffected
Dancing in your pretty pretty dress, like, oohhhh
Track Name: A Pig's Flight
A Pig's Flight

They say that a man is made of mud
so you see my confusion
I walk around on fours, you walk on two
but I can't quit dreaming too

Maybe we aren't so different
I like me a little mess too
'Cause living's for the ones who want
and all I want to do is

Fly
If hell is frozen over
I'll build the Devil a snowman
All I want to do is
Fly
If hell is frozen over
You will find me in the sky

I've walked alone for far too many years
When days bleed into one big lonely fear
The heart wants what it wants, so why can't I
believe there's something more for me in this life

Maybe we aren't so different
I like me a little mess too
'Cause living's for the ones who want
and all I want to do is

Fly
If hell is frozen over
I'll build the Devil a snowman
All I want to do is
Fly
If hell is frozen over
You will find me in the sky

They say that a man believes in love
so you see my confusion
I got so much, so much love to give
Think of me, will you?
Track Name: Our Days
Our Days (Lyrics by Mike Dianno)
 
off to work I go for a while
in loneliness, I pass the miles
the constant din of the road
leaves me tired
 
i know we'll be alright now
through the highs and lows
those summery tequila nights, mmm
spent with you, here while the stars light in your eyes

you and me are meant to be
despite our different ways
despite our different ways
together near, it's fate my dear
it's how we'll live our days
it's how we'll live our days
  
have i ever said you complete me
how you saved my life with your smile
But words have different ways of deceiving
if i had to do it all over again
Baby, I would never, ever, ever leave your side
 
you and me are meant to be
despite our different ways
despite our different ways
together near, it's fate my dear
it's how we'll live our days
it's how we'll live our days

    I played just like a rising storm
    but here at home you've kept me warm
    carved in a heart, under a tree
    oh those, summery tequila nights spent
here with you and stars in your eyes

you and me are meant to be
despite our different ways
despite our different ways
together near, it's fate my dear
it's how we'll live our days
it's how we'll live our days
 
yes you and me are meant to be
in love so many ways
in love so many ways
together here, it's truth my dear
it's how we'll live our days
it's how we'll live our days

off to work I go for a while
in loneliness, I pass the miles
Track Name: 20 Years
The sky could fall
Everything could fade to black
But in twenty years I'll still want you
In twenty years I'd still want you
People change
When living just to become whole
But in twenty years I'll still want you
In twenty years I'll still want you

So tell me that you want me too
Tell me that you'll never go, never leave me
Won't you tell me that you want me too
That I'm all you see.
Give me twenty years, then twenty more
Tell me that when I die, you die
Won't you tell me that you want me too
That I'm all you need.

The birds could keep quiet
Lonely without song
And the wheat fields could swallow us whole
But in twenty years I'll still want you
In twenty years I'll still want you
The wind could keep howling
like a million sighs in my ears
But in twenty years I'll still want you
In twenty years I'll want you like I did at day one

So tell me that you want me too
Tell me that you'll never go, never leave me
Won't you tell me that you want me too
That I'm all you see.
Give me twenty years, then twenty more
Tell me that when I die, you die
Won't you tell me that you want me too
That I'm all you need.

The atmosphere will burn and the trees will disappear
Glaciers will melt because we'd rather drive, rather waste
than spend the time to walk and talk to each other
The rich get richer with their eyes shut, hearts closed
People go hungry 'cause we never give, selfless
To those who need it the most

The sky could fall in twenty years
People change, but I'll still want you
