Echo Blue 02:46
cho Blue I dream of you I run right into you Echo Blue I run right into you Echo Blue Now and then, I think of you And my heart calls out your name Do you feel the same? My heart calls out your name Feel the same I'd run right into you Echo Blue Run right into you Echo Blue

She said take me down where the road meets the river This one horse town got me feeling like a prisoner on full lock down And I wanna tunnel my way out She said when school is out would you take me to the river? And park way down where the drivers cannot see us Turn the headlights out I got some things I need to say aloud She would light one up and burn it down And run her mouth 'bout the boys in town And how they'd push her around We could burn our bridges, cut all ties Stiff middle fingers for a last goodbyes Would you take me now? She said take me down where the road meets the river My hearts' torn out and I'm full of piss and vinegar She's on the ledge now And needs a friend to talk her down She said take me down where the road meets the river But my cars' broke down it's the slave or master cylinder So she clears on out There ain't no stopping her now And she was running on empty and hotter then hell And her heads' gonna crack if they keep on driving her into the ground We used to talk about climbing those walls and just taking flight In a hail of bullets just like Bonnie and Clyde Would you take me now? When word got out that she had gone missing I took a walk on out where she'd talk and I'd listen And all I found Were the cigarettes she burned down On unsteady ground where the road meets the river My heart pours out to her troubled disposition And I took a look around But she was nowhere And as time goes by I still think about If my wheels had of run could I have turned her around And put her fire out? There's a young man out there that I used to know And he's still hoping that she found a way out on to the open road She said take me down where the road meets the river This one horse town got me feeling like a prisoner

Wild Horses 03:17
She had me broken in Wild horses And I was so restless Like the western wind On her river bed She laid me down And I was so restless Her hand ran 'cross my brow If I was a wanted man I'd lay my riffle down If I was a preacher man I'd lay my bible down For she had me hopeless Like sinking ship And white water and wild horses Won't let me breath Wild horses Wild horses Wild horses Wild horses

Long lost lover My dear old flame If only things had turned out different Cause I still feel the same I move from town to town On every season change But everywhere I go It still feels the same I spend so many nights listening to the wind blow Thinking how I let you get away And would you ever know That I still hold a flame Yeah you know that some fires just won’t die Never could forget lord knows I’ve tried Even if I could my hands are tied ‘Cause everybody know some fires won’t die Old companion The one I let get away Its been so many years now Since I have seen you face I heard you settled down Over those rolling plains And wed an older man Who keeps you warm and safe  I spent so many nights looking out the window Thinking on how I got this way And would you ever know That I still hold a flame Yeah you know that some fires just won’t die Never could forget lord knows I’ve tried Even if I could my hands are tied ‘Cause everybody know some fires won’t die

Lead Me Home 03:26
She said I’m going on up ahead but I’ll see you real soon From her hospital bed in a white painted room I was holding her hand when she let go of hope A soul by a thread from an old tethered rope Now life here on earth well it just ain’t the same Since you ran on off headed into the flames I searched all the stars to find yours in the west And I dream every night about meeting you there And your star will glow Leading me home Well I talk to ol’ death and he gives me some hope I may see you again at the end of my road A wreak in the dark around this bend or next And I’ll go up in flames and see you on up ahead And your will star glow Leading me home Your star will glow Leading me home

Feel the cool breeze Laying in the sun Baby with me Laying in the sun Laying in the sun Catfish swimming Laying in the sun Bull frogs singing Laying in the sun Laying in the sun Willows weeping Laying in the sun Dreamin' day dreams Laying in the sun Laying in the sun

Rustin' 04:02
Well my baby girl is long gone Well my baby girl is long gone While I fall behind singing lonesome songs Well I know it does me no good Well hell i know it does me no good Still going through life pining after you But now I'm feed up with I can feel the burden lifting Don't wanna waste another minute rustin' over you Not a another single minute rustin' over you Laying low hanging on after we're through Won't waste another minute rustin' over you Said god dam I can't take it no longer I said god dam I can't take it no longer Just like that old wreck out back Gonna restore myself to new Cause I'm feed up with But I can feel the burden lifting Don't wanna waste another minute rustin' over you Not a another single minute rustin' over you Laying low hanging on after we're through Won't waste another minute rustin' over you

A burden so bad she was bound to break But don't worry little baby 'cause I can take A heavy load away Rest a worried head on the bed that you made You better bite your tongue 'cause it will hurt to take This poor heavy load away Wrap it up gently and tie it in place We'll lower it down the old dry well Where secrets keep safe And every night it's calling you down Hush little baby oh don't make a sound The thunder clouds and rain begin to clear away Don't let it even pass your mind on your wedding day A heavy load away A heavy load away

War Cry 03:34
Light is darkest 'fore the dawn Sea is calmest ‘fore the storm My will is strong my aim is true And in my sights the likes of you Our enemy stands upon the hill Wapping death 'pon our bunkers brim If I shall not return Send a death letter to my love Lord guide my hand and aim it true And may his aim be straighter still For shall he fail I will return A shot that killed ten thousand sons When my dying breath has drawn When flesh and blood are torn and thrown We were nothing more then fuel to fire And as we burn our spirts rise

Born To Lose 04:13
Got no friend in this town Got no confidant to confess my blues Got no right to gamble here Got no right to it lay down, risk it all on you I'm on a losing streak Thats brought me to me knees And now I'm begging you But want can I do when I've fallen for you I can't take it back when my intentions are true Driven to drink my life down the sink Cause I can see in your eyes you don't feel like I think Ohh Born to lose I got no way to get around Got no ride to take you on over the hill I got no aspirations Got no inclination on why I do what I do I never hit my peak Out on a losing streak And now I'm begging you But want can I do when I've fallen for you I can't take it back when my intentions are true Driven to drink, my life down the sink Cause I can see in your eyes you don't feel like I think Oh born to lose Mmm born to lose What can I do Mmm born to lose
