Track Name: I lost my guitar today
I’ll never leave you alone in the desert under the sun. You always stay on my mind. You always stay right by my side. But I was pretty buzzed. I mishandled you, my love. Set you down so I could pee. Set you down then I grabbed the keys and drove off. I drove off.

I’ll never lose you again. Your broken heart I will mend. When I got home you weren’t there. No more music in the air. And your song is oh so sweet. It puts me in a mood to drink. Sing it to me one more time. Sing it to me, I think I’ll cry.

You will return to me by way of a strange guy named Tony, “I found your guitar in the desert outside of town. You must have been on drugs, you must have been fooling around.” I’ll never leave you alone in the desert under the sun.
Track Name: My heart is an oven
On a desert cruise, in Arizona with you. There is nothing better I’d like to do. And we’ll waste time. And yes we’ll fight. But we’ll be fine. We found some desert bread. Do you remember it????

Just keep on driving. Never take me home! ‘cus all I need is what’s in this car tonight. Do you remember it???? So get out your guitar and play me those chords. They sound so pretty; you better add some words.

“My heart is an oven. I am a fly.” “Trolls don’t live out here. They only live under the bridge,” do you remember it???? Me and my Incredi-Bat. We’re smacking rocks off into the sunset. Do you remember it?
Track Name: Together forever
I love you and you love me. Let’s get married and start our family. You’ll be the mom, I’ll be the dad. It’ll be the best thing we’ve ever had. I’ll pay your fine at the library. So you can check out the books you like from Tony. And we’ll settle down. We’ll settle down.

I’ll quit this band that I’m in. I’ll tour solo acoustic. You’ll play the bass and I’ll play guitar. We’ll go to open mics in coffee shops. We’ll socialize with poets and artists while all the people in our town talk shit. And we’ll settle down. We’ll settle down.

There’s a monster down by the creek. Then there’s me drinking cheap whiskey. I’ll be the ghost, you’ll be the train. A passenger until the very end. And when we’re old you can say, “I told you so.” And when we’re old you can get my prescriptions filled. I gave you my favorite green sweater. Hope it keeps you warm this winter. Sat with you on that purple bench. It was the first place I ever held your hand. Now we’ve settled down. Yes, we’ve settled down.
Track Name: The Devil
The devil is in this truck. Now He is sitting upon the hood. He is trying to persuade me. Him and his demons are up to no good. Well, I’m a heathen too. You say I corrupted you. Kicked out of Eden forever. Partners in crime.

Yours is the sweetest that I ever had. Yours is the sweetest. Thinking of it nearly drives me mad. Jesus Christ, send that devil away. Jesus Christ, upon my bed she lay. And I know I shouldn’t but I think I will…open just one more, one hand upon the wheel.

The devil is in this truck. Now He is sitting upon the hood. He is trying to persuade me. Him and his demons are up to no good.

The angel of death came down and your parents wept. And on the day that they buried you I was laid up in a hospital bed. The truck came out of nowhere, the semi hit head on. We didn’t stand a chance in hell. Three lives were destroyed. Jesus Christ, send that devil away. Jesus Christ, upon my bed she lay.
Track Name: One year anniversary
You crashed my car into a ditch, your first time at the wheel. The summer I cannot forget…swimming pools and shows. Our first time at the Trunk Space to catch a Stephen Steinbrink show. Whoa-oh. It’s our one year anniversary. Hope you’re still in love with me after all the fucked up shit I’ve done.

But we have fun, we laugh at stuff. We make jokes out of everyone. We take long walks through our hometown, it’s so Fucking cute! Darling I love you, yes I love you….whoa-oh.

9-20-2014, hope you’re free that day because I’m going to marry you and you’ll never be able to get away. No our love will never fade. It sprung forth from that first date, so long ago, yeah, so long ago….9-20-2014 … 9-20-2014, 9-20-2014, hope you’re free that day because I’m going to marry you and you’ll never be able to get away. no, you’ll never be able to get away….no, you’ll never be able to get away. You’ll never be able to get away.
