Track Name: Clarence Clemons
I woke up outside my head
I thought of getting up but I didn't instead
I threw my phone at the wall and went back to sleep

I went out to get the fix
and we didn't get home til a quarter past six
you can say what you will, but this is how we roll

I wanna live like I'm going nowhere
I want to take out all the loans
and spend all that money on something stupid
just for a laugh on down the road

this is what I want
this is what I want

I saw him singing all alone
just a little old man in a bottomless hole
doing what I can to catch up with him

So I started driving down the road
well there ain't no money but I still gotta go
turn the stereo up cause this is what I want

I want to live like Clarence Clemons
I wanna play the saxophone
and spend all my time just rockin and rollin
so I don't look back and feel alone

this is what I want
this is what I want

now I
really want you now
I know I
really want you now
now I know I
really want you now
I know I do

We laughed a lot that summer
I'm still thinking of her
didn't know where to go but I knew how to get there

You asked me if this is enough
well I know I want more but I don't know how much
let's take off our clothes and talk about it

I want to live like I'm going nowhere
I wanna take out all the loans
and spend all that money on something stupid
just for a laugh on down the road

this is what I want
this is what I want

now I
really want you now
I know I
really want you now
now I know I
really want you now
I know I do

I was workin at a job
I really didn't give a damn about it at all
got down off the cross and started walking
all the way home
Track Name: Treefort
I rode past the tree fort today
and tried to remember all the drinks we drank
in those days you still smoked and dreamed of living in big places
a stripper lived down stairs
she wore so many faces
we got tired of watching her dance

all night
we made the very best mistakes
all night
we made the very best mistakes

the bottles line the window like soldiers
and he sang you a song while I sulked in the bathtub
she drank the ashtray but he kissed her anyway
the dishes in the sink stink like something was dead
so put a record on
and lets smoke another cigarette

all night
we made the very best mistakes
all night
we made the very best mistakes

hand me that bottle
I'm looking for you
we brought cold feet
to the dreams we pursued
I pulled a monkey off of my back
just to sing in your room
remembering lips I keep cherishing
cherishing
sailors and poets go digging through the world
we wore their eyes
for an autumn or two
but when the rednecks came in our lid just blew off
I still hear our world
in those aeroplane songs

all night
we made the very best mistakes
all night
we made the very best mistakes

we sit around and laugh about it now
but part of me still wishes you never left town
and we drove to New York
back when it was still gritty
the further it gets
the more it looks pretty
I guess we'll just live with these ghosts
Track Name: Mountain
All the things you know
get tangled up like thread
and the words you never said
grow jungles in your head
and the more you try to get out
the higher the vines grow
all around you

you could look at the mountain
and only see the climb
you could look at the road ahead
and only see a line
didn't anybody tell you
there was something past the sky
and you could go anywhere
one step at a time

the faces that you know
your afraid will turn to stone
and your wings are getting tired
of looking for a place to land
your blind in your good eye
and your fingers can't find your hands
all the while you've been sitting on them

you could look at the mountain
and only see the climb
you could look at the road ahead
and only see a line
didn't anybody tell you
there was something past the sky
and you could go anywhere
one step at a time

there's a judge in every mirror
and a window into every dream
the harvest is running late
while the world is bursting at it's seams
you could cover yourself in bones
or hide in the electric glow
but sometimes
we just need the rain

you could look at the mountain
and only see the climb
you could look at the road ahead
and only see a line
didn't anybody tell you
there was something past the sky
and you could go anywhere
one step at a time
one step at a time
one step at a time
Track Name: Archways
Under the archway
I saw you standing there
who could have known
what would happen next

over the bridge
covered in angels
we drank the wine
and walked through the time

who could have known
we would find ourselves in this place
over the ocean
written on all the archways

sing songs in the street
we find our voices
there's nothing sweeter
then the sound of you laughing

ruins hold secrets
only time can tell
we took the fountain
and rang all the church bells

who could have known
we would find ourselves in this place
over the ocean
written on all the archways
Track Name: Over U
Drunk on the street
high in a plane
sleeping alone

headphones downtown
I gotta dream in my headlights
I've been chasing so long
while the years hunt me down

all I think about
when the sky won't turn blue
baby I don't want
to ever get over U

it's a hunger I know
it's a chair and a rose
my heart is the bottle
and your eyes are my glass

whats gone is not passed
I remember it well
what's more real then now
is how you make me feel

all I think about
when the sky won't turn blue
baby I don't want
to ever get over U

I could go anywhere
and you know I want to
but baby I don't want
to ever get over
U
Track Name: Inside Joke
It's hard to speak clearly
with yesterdays voices
haunting your bones
pointing out all the words that you never could hear
because they were your own
Halloween cats on the last trail of acid
cowering under the arch in her back
we grew into our bodies
on the old bike trail

opening rainbows with a whisper
giving her candles that blister
while the bourbon hides under
our breath while I'm swinging
from her chandelier
and I still want to

I'm lucky that I found you
do feel lucky that you found me
well I wonder
what we would be if we all
grew up in some other town

you spilled around the corner
of Fairway Lane in the dark
I'm in a car with a ghost and a godess
walking rex with a pixie
and I swam in her head
while the bell bats
flew out of her giggle
we took the pavilion
our fearless cigarette teenage empire
the bums got us fixed

driving downtown
chasing the howling through the city streets
they were deserted
the sound of our persistence had echoes
I'm hearing them now
and I still want to

well I'm lucky
that I found you
do you feel lucky
that you found me too
well I wonder
what we would be if we all
grew up in some other town

it was only a joke
til she overdosed on the phone
songs are calling us home
to the go-go we all were distilled into gods
and nothing can take that away
my jeans caught fire
on the way to the bus
Mickey's Ice on the side of your lunch line house
I wouldn't trade it for nothing
my friend
