You Got A Way There's no easy way to tell you There's no easy way to understand When it's over, it's over, baby You're the one who taught me that You've been walking the streets at night and I've been grateful for the time alone Away from you You've been smoking cigarettes You got you're own seat at the bar Where we used to go And you got a way of making me feel like a little girl You got a reason to keep it all inside I got a habit of breaking hearts and running far and wide . . . There's no easy way to leave you There's too much here to divide You can take it all now baby 'Cept this guitar and my pride 'Cause you got a way of making me feel like nothing at all And you don't even notice why I got a habit of cutting you off and cutting you down to size There's no easy way to tell you There's no easy way to understand When communication breaks down It's the beginning of the end You got a way of making me feel like a little girl You got a reason to keep it all inside I got a habit of breaking hearts and running far and You got a way of making me feel like nothing at all And you don't even notice why I got a habit of cutting you off and cutting you down to size

Cry Me A River There's a symphony of snow This shit is getting old How the weather brings you down, I don't know You say it's all about the rain Like the world's in pain And you know what it is to be alone Well cry me a river while the snow is falling down Let it all go, let it soak into the ground It's almost freezing, it's almost stickin' around Cry me a river, let me listen to the sound Used to hate it when you'd lie And say that you were feeling fine Now I'm taking everything that I can get No promises no rules I might be leaving soon When it's time to go, we both know So cry me a river while the snow is falling down Let it all go, let it soak into the ground It's almost freezing, it's almost stickin' around Cry me a river, let me listen to the sound I feel a little cold, I feel a little old, I've been too long stickin' around But something holds me here, there's something about you dear, Much more than you appear So cry me a river while the snow is falling down Let it all go, let it soak into the ground It's almost freezing, it's almost stickin' around Cry me a river, let me listen to the sound Cry me a river while the snow is falling down Let it all go, let it soak into the ground It's almost freezing, it's almost stickin' around Cry me a river, let me listen to the sound

In A Heartbeat I write these songs about you 'Cause you told me not to That's like telling me to forget Everything that I regret Like falling in love from far away And what is love anyway? Is it like what they say - You can't love it 'til it's gone away In a heartbeat, I knew I didn't love you - I knew Oh yes in a heartbeat, I knew I didn't love you, I didn't love you You want what you can't have I don't want what I can You are a sensitive man God knows this will never never last You give me more than I want More than I need, you're too much for me Gimme some time, gimme some space Let me disappear without a trace 'Cause in a heartbeat I knew I didn't love you - I knew Oh yes in a heartbeat I knew I didn't love you, I didn't love you Now don't come crying to me 'Cause it wasn't meant to be I'm bad for you, you could be free To disconnect from your history 'Cause in a heartbeat I knew I didn't love you - I knew Oh yes in a heartbeat I knew I didn't love you, I didn't love you Oh yes in a heartbeat I knew I didn't love you - I knew Oh yes in a heartbeat I knew I didn't love you, I didn't love you

That's What I Do I wrote it all down, that's what I do To try and make sense of me and you The color of the night went from black to blue Since the snow fell, and our love did to The snow keeps falling now as morning comes And my heart is beating like a kick drum We pretend to sleep and we wait for some Good time to say that we've stayed too long I will sing it out again, try to make you comprehend It's not like me to ever fall so far Here I go another time, try to take what could be mine If you say yes than I will say let's ride We built the night then we saw it through And I never met anyone like you You make me feel strong and happy too And it's nice to think, if it ain't the truth I'm thinking too much, well it's what I do If I stayed, we might make it through This small town has got a hold on you And since the snow fell, it's got me too I will sing it out again, try to make you comprehend It's not like me to ever fall so far Here I go another time, try to take what could be mine If you say yes than I will say let's ride

Down, Down, Down Been sitting in the darkness You call me on the phone You've been working long days I've been left alone Don't see you in the morning Don't see you in the night Just see you in my dreams and You just pick a fight I'm going down, down, down with this love I'm going down, down, down with this love Used to tell me that you loved me But babe it's been a while Now I'm thinking someone Has got you with her smile Don't tell me that I'm crazy Or I'm playing the fool I know there's something missing And honey, I know you I'm going down, down, down with this love I'm going down, down, down with this love You're spinning around, round, round up above And I'm going down, down, down with this love Been lost inside my head now You're out into the night Oh you never tell me nothing And you think you're always right Been feeling pretty good Now I'm sinking fast You are bringing me down, love This'll never last I'm going down, down, down with this love I'm going down, down, down with this love You're spinning around, round, round up above And I'm going down, down, down with this love

Don't Let Me Down Don't let me down, don't let me fall Don't take the blame for this at all Don't ask me to explain this time Why we both crossed that line We might have drawn it in the sand Between a broken girl and a broken man But the tide is coming in fast It'll wash away our broken past Tell me your secrets - tell me why you want to end this way You said no regrets - but that should only make you stay Don't tell me lies, I won't tell mine We might be a little crazy but we're fine This back and forth, it ain't so bad You're still the best I've ever had Tell me your secrets - tell me why you want to end this way You said no regrets - but that should only make you stay Tell me your secrets - tell me why you want to end this way You said no regrets - but that should only make you stay

Miles to go 04:19
Miles To Go Are you standing on the shoulder? Are you feeling little cold? Out there there ain't no shelter and it's a long way home You're heading west, but The sun's long gone No cars are stopping and night's gettin' on Oh . . . No question in your mind Gettin' out is gettin' right Out there on the highway there ain't no lies Just miles and miles Rocks and stones Hills turning to mountains and stars so cold Oh . . . Out there there's a full moon shining (In here there's a heart worth fighting for) Are you thinking of the one you left behind (the one waiting for the truth to be on her side) Slow it down, take a breath and think of (the one you left and the things you left unsaid) Miles to go and darkness coming down . . . Are you crossing the border? Are you thinking of me? Or of a time and place that'll never be No question in your mind Everything will be fine Just get out on the highway and make some time Oh . . . Out there there's a full moon shining (In here there's a heart worth fighting for) Are you thinking of the one you left behind (the one waiting for the truth to be on her side) Slow it down, take a breath and think of (the one you left and the things you left unsaid) Miles to go and darkness coming down . . .

Left Behind 03:28
Left Behind A worn copy of "The Dharma Bums" An old hat, faded by the sun A sinking feeling that I wasn't the one $2.50 in assorted change A t-shirt that fit real strange And two lives broken in the rain All left behind All left behind A broken capo and a couple of picks A bandana with my name on it A bus pass from the East to the West You're sleepy smile in the morning How you'd like to write when it's pouring And it rained all the time All left behind All left behind Five empty bottles of wine And a lover who wasn't just mine And the hope of ever feeling fine Like, feeling footloose and fancy free Without this weight on me And this distance is too far to see All left behind All left behind

Falling in Love (Is Like That) One step forward and two steps back (Falling in love is like that) Head hurts, feeling like a heart attack (Falling in love is like that) Head is aching, but it just won't quit (Falling in love is like that) Wondering if this could be "it" Well never mind the aching in your heart Don't know where to go, don't know where to start It'll beat you down, it'll bring you back 'Cause falling in love is like that Two weeks falling and it's raining still (Falling in love is like that) But the constant rain can't kill the thrill (Falling in love is like that) If the world ends now we'll have lived and loved (Falling in love is like that) And you think that could be enough (Falling in love is like that) Well never mind the aching in your heart Don't know where to go, don't know where to start It'll beat you down, it'll bring you back 'Cause falling in love is like that

There's A Party Just one more smoke One more drink Before I sleep Just one more night To be loved Before I leave The mountains at night Loom so high And so frightening In this state and time No one can Soothe my mind Oh we came and now we're leaving It's in our nature not to stay too long And there ain't no time for grievin' There's a party out there going on Just one more friend I'll forget In time But here We'll stick in close Time will tell What we'll find Oh we came and now we're leaving It's in our nature not to stay too long And there ain't no time for grievin' There's a party out there going on Now one more time with feeling Let's celebrate being young and being strong And there ain't no time for reelin' There's a party out there going on
