Jenny Says 03:29
jenny says you should get some rest, i know you could get some things off your chest, just phone but every time you close the door she goes waking up two thousand miles from everyone you know i left a message from a phone in wyoming she might call back but i don’t know where i’m going all your hotel lobby friends are ghosts my memories of the factories are close behind jenny says that the sky is falling but there’s nothing up above i’m drawing diagrams of the world you’re dreaming of i believe in everything that you say like i believe in our love and i believe in our love how many rooms left with nobody to play for could take a job back home at least it would pay more all the people we thought we knew so good faded out but i guess i knew they would anyway i’m driving west i’m trying to shake off the sickness we don’t get better it’s just something we live with the good goodbye’s and the hollow as hell hello’s every time you close the door she goes, goes, goes jenny says that the sky is falling but there’s nothing up above i’m drawing diagrams of the world you’re dreaming of i believe in everything that you say like i believe in our love and i believe in our love i believe in our love

Wait Forever 03:15
i really thought that you would call nodding off on the max but it don’t bother me at all it’s just the jingling of the tracks girls in burkas boys in drag they’ve got their bags and flights ahead of them through the cracks in no man’s land we go together till we reach the end i’ll wait forever if i wait for you but i’ll wait forever baby if i have to i’ll wait forever if i wait for you but i’ll wait forever baby if you want me to some go alone and some in two’s it’s getting light out but it smells like rain and all i think about is you as the lights flicker off on the train i hear the buzzer and the bell i check my pockets and i check the time it’s getting late but i sit here still i can wait till the end of the line this time so i’ll wait forever if i wait for you but i’ll wait forever baby if i have to wait forever if i wait for you but i’ll wait forever baby if you want me to

it came to me laying on the grass it came to me while playing games and listening to you laugh it came to me and now i know it came to me and now i know it came to me walking up your steps it came to me while laying down and watching you undress it came to me and now i know it came to me and now i know that you were waiting for me to go it came to me as the evening set it came to me while watching you cash your last cigarette it came to me and now i know it came to me and now i know it came to me laying on my bed it came to me while i replayed the last thing that you said it came to me and now i know it came to me and now i know that you were waiting for me to go you were waiting for me to go

All The Time 04:10
i’m sorry for calling i just needed someone to know i don’t know what i mean i guess they’ll find it here sooner or later the paper i left by the sink and you know, i know you were never alone left to cry all the time, all the time and you know, i know you were sorry to go so was i all the time, all the time well there must be a scripture a packed away picture a light in the blinds i could find just in time to recite ancient history and tales of my victories in a war i’ve been fighting for nothing at all and you know, i know you were never alone left to cry all the time, all the times and you know, i know you were sorry to go so was i all the time, all the time all the time, all the time all the time

Tower Blocks 03:03
go out the back i’ll clean up the blood and the glass the bartender’s yelling as she falls on her ass drive her home, give her someplace to sleep it off they’re calling the cops while she’s combing her hair with her hands passing tower blocks in the mirror you’re checking your breath but you’re in the clear and you were made to love her "what’s there to drink?" she picks out two glasses and a bottle from the rack in the hall lights a cigarette, makes an ashtray of an empty pack she tastes like the rain on the sidewalk when you miss the last train like the start of a dream when you know how it ends if you close your eyes tight she feels like home but she’ll be gone in the morning and you were made to love her "do you want my number?" she said "i can get it from a friend you’re not hard to find now, i know where you live i don’t keep a phone, that’s just how it is but you can see me in the faded traffic signs in the bends in the blinds in the NEW YORK TIMES in the misdemeanor crimes in the soup kitchen lines in anything else that the looters leave behind" and you were made to love her

i work at the service station she worked at the bank she saved up all her money for a move up to the city it’s not hard to be in love with a brownsville girl but it’s a blue tarp moon it’s a blue tarp moon it’s a blue tarp moon and it’s shining just on me after school i walked her home and she took me to her room i layed there for an hour with the reverend’s only daughter it’s not hard to be in love with a brownsville girl beneath the blue tarp moon i took her in my arms if our love is damned at least it should have scars i was up for a long time i was looking at you i recognized the sadness in your eyes you can see mine too we watched out the window as the stars burned out she said “i don’t want you to go, but you better go now” “you better go now” i’m still at the service station, your mom came by today she told me that you’re happy and that you’re better off without me it’s not hard to be in love with a brownsville girl but it’s a blue tarp moon it’s a blue tarp moon it’s a blue tarp moon and it’s shining just on me it’s a blue tarp moon and it’s shining just on me

Slip Dreams 03:18
i was waiting for you at the Conoco palling around with John we were watching the trains as they rolled away waiting for you to come slip dreams of sixteen blonde girls in blue jeans you were young and in love you were young but you’re not the only one carving your name in the windshield dust John drove us up to the view said “it’d be more fun if you close your eyes” “i’ll close my eyes too” slip dreams of sixteen blonde girls in blue jeans you were young and in love you were young but you’re not the only one with slip dreams of sixteen good girls on ketamine you were young and in love you were young but you’re the only one you were young, in love forever you were young, but you were old enough to know better slip dreams

What A Life 05:05
with love like this, and vitamins how could i ever go wrong? just like that, like a cigarette i let it go and the name of the game is redemption and shame so sing along oh, what a life to be tired every night after wasting a day’s worth of time the sun starts to fade as my mind starts to play with the darkness that lives where i lay spinning out, spinning round and round how could i ever come down? just like this, like the one you miss i let it go and it’s just as it seems, like the father who leaves so sing along oh, what a life to be tired every night after wasting a day’s worth of time the sun starts to fade as my mind starts to play with the darkness that lives where i lay don’t empathize with anyone at all just go to him, and i’ll stay
