Track Name: Not Your Woman
I am not your woman I'm your mirror
And I become you isn't that what you wanted?
Isn't that what we're going for?

I am not a singer this is not my voice
I'm a story that you make up in your mind
It's cold inside your mind I might just start a fire

And look me over and over
Take a picture take a picture it'll last longer than me

Look me over and over
Take a picture take a picture maybe I can see me too

As I'm singing about you

I am not a boulder you can move me
Oh come on move me
Come on move me

I am not a boulder you can move me with a flicker of your
Long dark eyelashes
Your long dark eyelashes
Track Name: The World is Round
Keep it up
Keep it going
Keep on running
Don't look back
If you do
There's no knowing
What you might see in your tracks

Can you smell the fallen branches and
The eucalyptus brambles
Hear the wind tear through the shambles of our love
Come on whippoorwill give out a trill give me a chill
Make me forget the things I'm thinking of
Thinking of

And the city in the distance makes me doubt my own existence
Swear this missing you is eating me alive
Still I must admit it's been a bit of a relief
From constantly convincing you I'm still on your side

Babe there are no sides
The world is round

Keep it up
Keep it going
Keep on running
Don't look back
If you do
There's no knowing
What you might see in your tracks

You might see me in some kitchen drenched in sunlight I ain't kidding
You've got a habit of letting me stick to your shoe
I might be getting old but still I'm told I'm the kind of girl
Who can give, give, give a man the blues
Give a man the blues

And the city in the distance makes me doubt my own existence
Swear this missing you is eating me alive
Still I must admit it's been a bit of a relief
From constantly convincing you I'm still on your side

Babe there are no sides
The world is round

Babe there are no sides
The world is round

Babe there are no sides
The world is round
Track Name: Baklava
Your folks are doing the best that they can
Your dad crashed the family van
Late for dinner but you were all alright
Mom says why not make a date out of it
You all check in to a Motel 6
And they let you stay up real late

Your mom made baklava
You watched Robin Williams
Through static on the T.V.
Static on the T.V.

You're living someone's American dream
Chocolate milkshake made with real ice cream
Missed the dinner but you were all alright
About time I got a new one dad says anyways
Hey maybe we can sue them and not have to pay
That put the smile back on his face
And he let you stay up real late

Your mom made baklava
You watched Robin Williams
Through static on the T.V.
Static on the T.V.
And the snow fell down
The snow fell down
The snow fell down
Track Name: Praying Man
Last summer I wrote
Three names on the wall
Of a temple to burn, burn down
My friend and my brother
And you, you, you, you
Then my friend got the hell out of town

Last summer I wrote
Three names on the wall
Of a temple to set them free
My brother went crazy
And you, you, you, you
You fell in love with me

I've never been a praying man
Never learned to talk to God
Never got no answers back
Not a whisper wink or nod

Daddy goes to church now
You know he never used to
At least he hadn't in a long long time
He don't get down on his knees
He doesn't take communion
He says it's stale they make you wait in line

Momma goes to church now, too
She says she loves the music
Believers they can really rock & roll
The choir and the electric guitars
And the holy ghost
They fill her up, they make her feel whole

I've never been a praying man
Never learned to talk to God
Never got no answers back
Not a whisper wink or nod
A whisper a wink

This morning I woke up
At half past five I don't know why
Maybe dreaming maybe it was the birds
I kicked a bit you woke up too
And held me close and held me true
And we exchanged our three little words

This morning I woke up
Bleary-eyed and to my surprise
I saw you knock on wood
No it's not a euphemism
You're not usually superstitious but
I guess something's been going good

I've never been a praying man
Never learned to talk to God
Never got no answers back
Not a whisper wink or nod
A whisper a wink or a nod
Track Name: West Texas
A small downpayment and then eighty bucks a month
Buys a rectangle of sand out in the sun
With a pale sky and cacti, it'd be perfect
Just for one or two, one or two
Like me and you, me and you
And whatever we wanna get up to

Let the others have their mega mansions
We'll make our home tiny and lean
With a tiny kitchen and a giant yard
And tiny kids to terrorize it
If you know what I mean
They can learn to recognize the rattlers
And to love themselves like they love everyone
And to always wear their hats when they run
Around our rectangle of sand under the sun

Let's buy land out in West Texas
For a small down payment
Then the price of two dinners out a month
And we're good cooks
No mineral rights no water
But just look at that sunset
Look at that sunset
Have I convinced us yet?

You can express yourself through sculpture
And I can learn to immerse myself in synths
Animal, vegetable, or mineral
It would be criminal
To walk away from a dream like this
I know we're in our 20s and it sounds kinda insane
But we could build a basin and try harvesting the rain
Or pick the prickly pears with tongs when they start getting ripe
Or even make a hot tub out of scrap and copper pipe
For when the fall of man it finally comes
Could maybe get ourselves a couple guns

Let's buy land out in West Texas
For a small down payment
Then the price of two dinners out a month
And we're good cooks
No mineral rights no water
But just look at that sunset
Look at that sunset
Have I convinced us yet?

Please let's live out in West Texas
Where animal, vegetable, or mineral
Not all the flying objects
Are identifiable

Let's buy land out in West Texas
'Cause darling it's cheap
And darling I love you
And there ain't nobody or nothing
Who can tell us what to do
Under so much sky but God
Track Name: Hey Friend (Live)
Hey friend
Please don't go
Don't you know I need you here

He loves you
I love you too
Maybe not quite like him
Does it matter

I'll never guilt you for staying out late at night
I'll stay out too
We'll paint the town
You can kiss all the boys and I can kiss them too
Then we'll come home
And compare notes in bed
Compare notes in bed
I love you
Please don't go

If you stay
We'll play hooky for a day
We can go to the beach or a museum
Or we could not
We could just sit at home and talk
I'll write a song about
The things that I've been feeling

I'll never guilt you for staying out late at night
I'll stay out too
We'll paint the town
I'll kiss all the boys that you want me to
Then we'll come home
And compare notes in bed
Compare notes in bed
I love you
Please don't go

Hey friend
I'm so sorry that you're bored
It's all my fault I never thought it'd come to this
I love you
You love me too
But maybe not quite like I love you and it matters

I'll never guilt you for staying out late at night
I'll stay out too
We'll paint the town
I'll kiss all the boys but I'll pretend they're you
Then we'll come home
And compare notes in bed
Compare notes in bed
I love you
Please don't go
