Track Name: Make Love, Not Excuses
if you're too scared to make love, I'm sorry
it's terrifying to me, too
but I don't keep living so I can keep thinking about doing what I wanna do

oh I'm a coward for plenty
no, I don't like to get high
but I won't let love hold me down now
I'm riding love up to the sky

I don't want your mean love, your sad love, your blue love
I don't want your bad love, now
I just want your red blood, your real love, your good love
I just want your brave love, now

so stay here tonight, you big baby
do just what's frightening you
my house is full and I'm aching to make some big lightning with you

so stay here tonight, baby
so I can make lightning with you
Track Name: It's For You, Again
I really like you
I really do
I'd pack up all my things and I'd take em to you

it don't have to do with love to be true
you don't say you love me
you say "I believe in you"

I can't wait to see you
and talk to you, too
you're somebody's favorite
you're my favorite, too

I think I love you
no, I know I do
I got a reputation
and I can't keep telling you
Track Name: Kiss Me (While You Break My Heart)
pull me while I push away
find me though losing's your art
call me at the end of the day
kiss me while you break my heart

mean it when you tell me a lie
need me when we are apart
laugh while I try not to cry
kiss me while you break my heart

clap for this one-woman-show
finish what you'll never start
hold me while I let you go
kiss me while you break my heart
Track Name: Johnny
Johnny I could make you happy
Johnny I sure wanna try
tell me you're not getting married
tell me you're saying goodbye

look how I live in your world now
Johnny I don't ask for much
I keep my distance I know how
it feels every time we don't touch

thank god I'm wearing my glasses
I need some way to hide
I need something between us
when you get that look in your eye

thank god I don't know your number
I only know your name
I'm young and you do love her
Johnny - it's better this way

Johnny I could bring you trouble
what would people say
Johnny I could be your lover
Johnny I can start today

lightning's lit me already
thunder's too far off to hear
don't worry, I'll play the heavy
now keep saying things in my ear

thank god I haven't been drinking
thank god it's not a full moon
we've got no business being
the only ones in the room

thank god I don't know your number
I only know your name
I'm young and you do love her
Johnny - it's better this way
Track Name: Peter Pan
don't know where to find you now, couldn't if I tried
I knew you in the summertime, I took you for a ride
every afternoon we'd lean into a moving room
you took me for a drive one night, I took you to the moon

Ichabod, with dark brown eyes, and smoke was in the air
I watched you do that thing, that thing where you would muss your hair
before work and after work, just learning how to be
alive and well in one another's heavy company

you made me lunch, you liked me drunk, you liked to show up late
walking home, a little stoned, the shadow that we make
white sundress, in the basement you taught me how to breathe
now here I am, my Peter Pan, deciding when to leave
Track Name: Louise
when one of 'em's cryin the other is tryin her best for the both of 'em
they learned how to run and to fire their guns and to drive like the devil is chasin em

all the men in America want a leggy woman
even better if her hair is red and there are two of em

if I ever end up a killer, I hope that I'll be like Louise
she didn't take lightly the end of a life, she just had no use for the police
I don't have guns or any husbands but suddenly I've gotta go
buy an old thunderbird, cut the sleeves off my shirt, and haul ass to Mexico

all the men in America want a leggy woman
even better if her hair is red and there are two of em

nothin better than warm weather, the open road, and me and you
nothin better than warm weather, the open road, and me and you

all the men in America want a leggy woman
even better if her hair is red and there are two of em

two of em
Track Name: Blackberry Blues
Got berry blood on my fingers, I got your son in my eyes
I made him much too important, now only he can make me cry
Gray must be his color; he's got a real sad kind of shine

What kind of mother raised this friend of mine?
Said he couldn't be my lover, something about the time
I liked to pass mine with him; he liked to pass me by
