Track Name: It's You For Me
Another morning after dawn
And I been driving on too long
Little songbird in my mind
And another dirty motel left behind me
All your exploits and you sin
Didn’t take the honey from your skin
Love makes us all children
Again and again and again

It’s you
It’s you for me

We stopped for fruit at a roadside stand
The desert air, warm and thin
I lost my way that night when the sun went down
You’re heart is a gypsy town

It’s you
It’s you for me

Piano keys are dusty now
Wish I’d learned to play
I’d sing a song about my broken heart
And how I got this way

Track Name: Maybe
Maybe, maybe you’ll go and let me move on

But you drink too much and make me fall apart
Then you love me up and promise a new start
And I forget just how and who we are
And I forget we ought to be apart

But maybe, maybe you’ll go and let me move on

But I dream of you and it all feels real again
You loved me once and the rest I pretend
And I’ll be glad to play the fool again
And I’ll be glad to take you back again

And return to places all the roads will go
Places where the faces we all know
And I will try to call it something new
That's the way that I return to you

Maybe, maybe you’ll go and let me move on

Track Name: San Sebastian Del Oeste
Where the clouds
And the wind
And the rivers begin
I will see my baby
Once again

In the sky
With the birds
Were the silence is heard
I will see my baby
Once again

Way on high
In that place
Oh the endless space
I will see my baby
Once again

He will know
That it’s me
And together we’ll be
When I see my baby
Once again

In.....
San Sebastian del Oeste
San Sebastian del Oeste

On the side
Of a hill
Where the time stands still
And I whispered I love you
I always will

Under night
Under sun
I don’t know what you done
But I love you the same
You’re my only one

Oh the peace
That I found
In this Mexico town
Only peace that I know
Since you let me down

And to be
Like we were
No I won’t want for more
For one night will you love me
Like you did before

In.....
San Sebastian del Oeste
San Sebastian del Oeste
San Sebastian del Oeste
San Sebastian del Oeste

Track Name: Now You're Gone
Ain’t no good times
Now you’re gone
Ain’t no sunshine
Now you’re gone
Take a walk beside the bay
Watch the water stretch out long

Ain’t no dreams
Coming true
Ain’t no getting
Over you
Thought we’d leave this town someday
I thought so many things

You were the one
My life is done
Now you’re gone
Now you’re gone

Ain’t no babies
Now you’re gone
Ain’t no family
Now you’re gone
I spend all my time alone
Dreaming about my folks and my home

Ain’t no dreams
Coming true
Ain’t no getting
Over you
Ain’t no dreams coming true
Ain’t no getting over you

You were the one
My life is done
Now you’re gone
Now you’re gone
Since you gone
Oh you’re gone

Track Name: Die Of A Broken Heart
Work like a dog in Western Washington
Felt my heartbeat stop before it had begun
When I first saw you, I knew
I’m gonna die of a broken heart

Been thinking hard about a better place
I close my eyes, I can see you boyish face again
Start weeping and I knew
I’m gonna die of a broken heart

Just the grace of God that kept me in your mind
Nothing more wrong than being left behind
You packed your bags, and I knew
I’m gonna die of a broken heart

In Colorado the mountains are so high
A pretty face there might take me from your mind
I lay down last night and I knew
I’m gonna die of a broken heart

Track Name: Blue River Man
Like a river
I’ve always known
Keep on rolling
But I have no home

The water’s blue
So am I
Passing through
All my time

I pass through canyons
With bloodied walls
Saw the towns that had no gold
I stood at the edge of no mans land
And polished stones while they got old

And I’m still, still waiting on my…
Blue river man
Blue river man

There’s an old house
Down by the ocean
I saw it white
With a white porch too

I ‘d like to lead
A life of devotion
I’d like to live there
Just me and you

Stop you rambling, stop your rolling
Stay in the still water pool
Cleans your wounds before the ocean
Treat me right don’t be a fool

Don’t be a fool, don’t be a fool, don’t be a fool
Just be my blue river man
Blue river man
Blue river man
Blue river man

Track Name: How To Love Me
Was the last thing you said kind or sweet
Well I don’t remember that now
And the girl who loves you will lie at your feet
But you never never knew how

How to love me
How to love me
How to love me
How to love me, you never knew how

Was the last time we touched crazy and wild
Well I wish I could feel like that now
I’m the girl who loved you and made you smile
And I won’t forget for a while

How you kissed me
How you kissed me
How you kissed me
But to love me you never knew how

Did you mean it when you say you’re my man
Cause you never admit to a lie
And the girl who loves you won’t ask you twice
To say what you know makes her cry

How you fool me
How you fool me
How you fool me
But to love me you never knew how

How to love me
How to love me
How to love me
How to love me, you never knew how
