1. My Poor Heart

I need to rest my poor heart
I think I’ve taken it too far
I need a cold glass of water and a place to fall apart
I need to rest my poor heart

Yeah I lost my wallet and my keys
They’re lying somewhere around with my dignity
I woke up and I couldn’t breathe
Yeah a monkey sitting next to me

I think it’s time to go home
I think it’s time to be alone
I’m so tired of being gone
I need a little more sleep
A little less talk
I gotta go see my ma and pa

I need to rest my poor heart
I think I’ve taken it too far
I need a cold glass of water and a place to fall apart
I need to rest my poor heart

Yeah I went to the moon and back
And on the way down I crashed
I had an itch and I needed scratchin’
Oh ain’t it funny how that feeling just don’t last

I think it’s time to go home
I think it’s time to be alone
I’m so tired of being gone
I need a little more sleep
A little less talk
I gotta go see my ma and pa
I need a little more sleep
A little less talk
I gotta go see my ma and pa

I need to rest my poor heart

I need to rest my poor heart
I need a cold glass of water and a place to fall apart
I need to rest my poor heart

2. Josie

Josie took a cab out of town and then she turned it around
She said they’ll never let me leave this place
She gave the cabbie her money and said don’t look down

He didn’t have a clue what she was talking about
All the locals know her as Jo
She drinks Manhattans and wears gentlemen’s clothes
She likes to get high when she’s low
And break the hearts of boys for the fun of it all

Josie rides closely to the line
She’s high and she’s trying to survive
Born with a little bit of trouble in her eyes
Josie rides closely to the line
Go Josie, go

Johnny cut a deal for an album that he never put out
He’s got a place in her bed for when he’s comin’ down
Josie sees something that he don’t see in himself
Now she looks the other way while he’s fucking around
All the locals say they don’t know why she lives so fast and she moves so slow

Josie rides closely to the line
She’s high and she’s trying to survive
Born with a little bit of trouble in her eyes
Josie rides closely to the line
Go Josie, go

It’s okay, don’t change
Just throw it all away
It’s okay, don’t change
Just throw it all away
Go Josie, go
Go Josie, go
Just throw it all away
It’s okay, don’t change
Go Josie, go

All the locals know her as Jo
She drinks Manhattans and wears gentlemen’s clothes
She likes to get high when she’s low
And break the hearts of boys for the fun of it all

Josie rides closely to the line
She’s high and she’s trying to survive
Born with a little bit of trouble in her eyes
Josie rides closely to the line
Go Josie, go

3. Everything Is Alright

I spent all my money on a pack of cigarettes
For a lady that I love with a name I forget
That night I taught her how to laugh she taught me how to slow dance
I tried to take her home she said you don’t stand a chance

I’m the closest thing my mother has to a daughter
I used to be ashamed of that but now I’m kind of flattered
I learned that my weakness is a weapon anyway
So I haven’t touched a pretty thing in forty days

Everything is alright, if only for the night
I forgot what it feels like

I set out on a dream that I couldn’t understand
It made me happy, sad, loved, lonely and numb to what I had
A few too many favours from a few too many fake friends
I’d wake up in the afternoon and do it all again

Yeah I punched a man on his wedding night
I’m still trying to figure out how to apologise
And I learned the morning light can’t fix nothing anyway
So I haven’t touched a pretty thing in forty days

Everything is alright, if only for the night
I forgot what it feels like
Everything is alright, if only for the night
I forgot what it feels like

Can you feel it baby?
I can feel it baby
I feel it coming through

Everything is alright, if only for the night
I forgot what it feels like
Everything is alright, if only for the night

I forgot what it feels like 



I spent all my money on a pack of cigarettes
For a lady that I love with a name I forget
And I learned the morning light can’t fix nothing anyway
So I haven’t touched a pretty thing in forty days

4. Come Down

Hey baby, it ain’t that late
We can get breakfast if you stay awake
We got your daddy’s credit card
Come on, let’s get high

Don’t give up now for god’s sake
I ain’t sleeping when we’re breaking on the edge of a day
Don’t you wanna make this feeling last for a while?

You got the money and I got the heart
I know a guy that delivers to these parts
So don’t you come down on me
Don’t you come down on me
Don’t you come down on me, tonight

One more for the road kid
Let’s go down to the water and get out of our heads
Standing by the shore you can hear the lake breathe
The feeling takes you hostage, rushing from your heart into the palm of my hands
We can make this little prison city feel free

You got the money and I got the heart
I know a guy that delivers to these parts
So don’t you come down on me
Don’t you come down on me
Don’t you come down on me, tonight

You’re gonna be just fine
The sun’s going down on the city again, don’t it look lonely?
I don’t wanna feel lonely

There you go fading on the edge of the bed
Looking so lonely
I don’t wanna feel lonely

So don’t you come down on me
Don’t you come down on me

You got the money and I got the heart
I know a guy that delivers to these parts
So don’t you come down on me
Don’t you come down on me
Don’t you come down on me, tonight
We’re gonna be just fine

5. Hide My Love

Megan let me in
I can’t believe we’re doing this again
We keep the cab companies in business
As God as my witness
I smashed the orchids on the street, ten below in bare feet
Got on my knees and cleaned the glass up
Oh this aching in my gut

I can no longer hide you, my love
Why do you hide me, my love?

Jimmy fuck off, get away from my girl
Sick of you making me look bad
I know about wanting what you can’t have
Is it all in my head?
I poured a glass of water on her bed
Why does she like it when I’m like that?
Oh this love is a bloodbath

I can no longer hide you, my love
Why do you hide me, my love?

Sarah let me in, would you at least stop laughing?
I know it’s none of your business
Just go get your sister

I can no longer hide you, my love
I can no longer hide you, my love
I can no longer hide you, my love
My love
Why do you hide me, my love?

Let ‘em know who I am
Let ‘em know who I am
Let ‘em know who I am
Let ‘em know who I am
Let ‘em know who I am
Let ‘em know who I am

6. Godless, Graceless And Young

Take a walk down Main Street
Tell me it ain’t the most charming thing that you’ve ever seen
With that cold breeze blowing off the lake in June
Don’t go missing the summer
Let them balcony girls put you under
The spell of the streets and the city beneath a sweating heavy moon

I don’t have to tell you that you’re gonna miss it when it’s gone
It feels so damn good to be godless, graceless and young

You want some of what I got?
We can get more, I can make you feel better than before
I can make it feel good to be unsure
Don’t you feel caught?
Don’t you wonder what it’s for?
It’s good that it leaves you wanting more
It’s good that it feels like love and war

I don’t have to tell you that you’re gonna miss it when it’s gone
It feels so damn good to be godless, graceless and young
The streets are catching fire and the city’s just singing along
It feels so damn good to be godless, graceless and young

7. My Blood

Daddy’s on the run from the IRS
He says it runs in the family, think nothing less
Says we don’t have to pick him up when he’s dead
I ain’t giving them bastards a penny back
They put cuffs on your uncle then they locked the door
Your cousin took a trip to the hospital
She didn’t know if she was unfit or not
No she didn’t know if she was unfit or not

I never needed a reason to let you down
You’re running in my blood
We’ve got a reputation in this town
You’re running in my blood
I’ll be right beside you when you hit the ground
You’re running in my blood
I never needed a reason to let you down
You’re running in my blood

Pop is running around with a pain in his chest
He says it runs in the family, think nothing less
Smiling at me through a cigarette
He says you ain’t in pain if you don’t look like it
Momma it’s Christmas now don’t you cry
You’re the only reason we’re here tonight
Yeah you’re the only reason we’re here tonight

I never needed a reason to let you down
You’re running in my blood
We’ve got a reputation in this town
You’re running in my blood
I’ll be right beside you when you hit the ground
You’re running in my blood
I never needed a reason to let you down
You’re running in my blood

I’m nothing without you, you’re nothing without me

I never needed a reason to let you down
You’re running in my blood
We’ve got a reputation in this town
You’re running in my blood
I’ll be right beside you when you hit the ground
You’re running in my blood
I never needed a reason to let you down
You’re running in my blood

I’m nothing without you, you’re nothing without me

8. S.O.S (Sawed Off Shotgun)

Mother, I don’t wanna take my medicine
Twenty-four years in the gutter again
I’m losing it, I’m losing it
Everybody’s acting like they’re all alright
I can barely get myself to sleep at night
I’m sick of it, I’m sick of it

Yeah they sent the taxman
I lost my job and you got hooked on oxycontin
They shut the lights off, they took the car
And I bought a sawed off shotgun

Yeah they sent the taxman
I lost my job and you got hooked on oxycontin
They shut the lights off, they took the car
And I bought a sawed off shotgun

I’d rather be crazy than to take these pills
I’m sick of being okay against my will
I’m losing it, I’m losing it
Ain’t a thing in this world that I’m gonna miss
It’s all fake smiles and leather jackets
We’re full of it, yeah we’re full of shit

I don’t know who to trust

Yeah they sent the taxman
I lost my job and you got hooked on oxycontin
They shut the lights off, they took the car
And I bought a sawed off shotgun

Yeah they sent the taxman
I lost my job and you got hooked on oxycontin
They shut the lights off, they took the car
And I bought a sawed off shotgun

I’m losing it
I bought a sawed off shotgun

I’m losing it
I bought a sawed off shotgun

I don’t know who to trust
Don’t they need people like us?

Yeah they sent the taxman
I lost my job and you got hooked on oxycontin
They shut the lights off, they took the car
And I bought a sawed off shotgun

Yeah they sent the taxman
I lost my job and you got hooked on oxycontin
They shut the lights off, they took the car
And I bought a sawed off shotgun

Yeah they sent the taxman
I lost my job and you got hooked on oxycontin
They shut the lights off, they took the car
And I bought a sawed off shotgun

9. So Much Love To Give

I was born Friday the thirteenth
In a town of limestone and penitentiaries
Can’t blame it all on bad luck, the way I fuck things up

But I got a heart on me I swear
It’s hidden in the back of the bar somewhere
Everything you’ve heard is true but I can make it up to you

I’ve got so much love to give
I got so much more than this
Forgive me for everything I did
I’ve got so much love to give

I might die on a Saturday night
And wake up Sunday on the wrong side of paradise
Unrehearsed and overdressed, I’m a goddamn mess

But I got a head on me I swear
It’s hidden in the back of the bar somewhere
Everything you’ve heard is true but I can make it up to you

I’ve got so much love to give
I got so much more than this
Forgive me for everything I did
I’ve got so much love to give

I got so much left in me
I got so much left in me
In me
In me

I got a heart on me I swear
It’s hidden in the back of the bar somewhere
Everything you’ve heard is true, let me make it up to you

I’ve got so much love to give
I got so much more than this
Forgive me for everything I did
I’ve got so much love to give

10. Thank You For Saying Goodbye

Someday I’m gonna wake up and you won’t be on my mind
And maybe I won’t hate myself for eating you alive
Perhaps the very thought of you will only make me smile
Someday I’m gonna wake up and you won’t be on my mind

‘Cause all them dirty things made me think that love was a lot like hate
And all them fiery nights just could not make up for them firefights

Thank you for saying goodbye

Someday you’re gonna wake up from a deep and happy sleep
And say ”baby, I don’t hate you for the breath you stole from me”
Perhaps I’ll see you downtown and I’ll take you for a drink
Someday I’m gonna wake up and my heart ain’t gonna sink

‘Cause all them dirty things made me think that love is a lot like hate
And all those Friday nights that you went home crying
They’re still my fault

Thank you for saying goodbye

‘Cause all them dirty things made me think that love is a lot like hate
And all those Friday nights that you went home crying
They’re still my fault

Thank you for saying goodbye
