Track Name: Elegy
When they call your favorite ones to your bedside
To stand with you and hold your hand right before you die
Are you mad, are you scared, do you even know
That they're there, that they care, and wish you wouldn't go?

I heard there was relief in your house when you closed your eyes
I know what they were trying to say but Jesus Christ
I couldn't do a single thing, I didn't really try
I'll have a word with god who'll say, "forever's not my style."
Track Name: Salt Song
He always told me pepper was the secret
He always told me to try
I still don't know why

I shouldn't have told you about that little secret
But only sinners lie
And I just couldn't try

Sit where she told you
They all came to see this
I'd like to see you dry your eyes
Cause only babies cry

Doctor told her, "We'll do our best to beat this."
Doctor told her she could try
Now all she do is die

Ride along now, we're all going to meet it
And drink the best that you can buy
But yeah it'll make you want to cry
Track Name: Narrow Song
My hips'll never be narrow
My hands will always be small
Someday my field will lie fallow
Now I'm the belle of the ball

I went to sleep with your sorrow
And woke up spitting with fright
Hey pretty girl could I borrow your boyfriend just for the night?

When I get stuck in the shallows
Something fries in my brain
Words come out sounding so hollow
How do you know you're insane?

Find your way out of the narrow
Take the long way home to me
I'll meet you somewhere tomorrow
We'll be all broken and free
Track Name: What I Can See
Don't leave me alone don't leave your cologne on my pillows and bones
I'm not strong now
I'll stand in the fire I will love a liar will you never tire of this battleground
You're still free, that I can see, go away from me

Can't deny I've been stung by you the wicked son stinging's all that you've done my spots are showing
You will try to soothe I'll fight nail and tooth don't care how uncouth don't you tell me the truth here
You're too free, that I can see, go away from me

You looked at me strongly and said to me calmly who else could be for me my dear if not you?
That's when she showed up you pulled your shorts up I'll be a grown up you're with her now
She's not me, that I can see, go away from me
Track Name: Is Life Long or Short?
If I die when I am 33
I'll wish I had smoked like a chimney
All the cigarettes will laugh at my fear
What is cancer when death wants you near?

So let's smoke all the bad dreams away
You might cough at first, that's okay
Hold my hand, I'm blowing away
Sing like you'll be dead one of these days

If I die when I am 32
I'll wish I'd kissed you you and you
I'll have all the time to be alone
When there's dirt and grass over my bones

So let's kiss til my soul burns away
We won't last but let's kiss anyway
Hold my hand I'm slipping away
Sing like you'll be dead one of these days
Track Name: New Jersey
Mommy I miss New Jersey
I don't know what life's about
Mommy it's late February
Things just aren't quite panning out

I wish I was still a virgin
I wish I'd never known love
Me and the hills we're a-hurtin for some sweet rain from above

I've tried running towards it
Let it catch me by surprise
I've never learned how to afford it
Love cleans me out every time
Track Name: I Want To
I'm nothing like the woman I think I'd like to be
I'm only brave sometimes and I think like crazy
But I love the sound of your deep voice
And I love your shoulders wide
I want to feel your love on me
Come here a little while

I'm something like the woman I think I'd like to be
I'm swimming in my feelings and I'm learning something
And I love the warm in your hands
I love your flickering eyes
I want to feel your love on me
Come here a little while

I guess I'm just the woman I'm turning out to be
I'm hungry for and lonesome in your sweet company
But I love your leather eyelids
And I love your dirty smile
I want to feel your love on me
Come here a little while
