Track Name: Let's Meet on the Lakeshore
I hope it wont take long for you to get to me
Been waiting for so long, and I'm thinking it's not meant to be
I can't wait to see your flowing long brown hair
Ooh, let's meet on the lake shore

I'm not sure that if i'll ever get to see your face
Been waiting for your letters and they still haven't ever came
You keep telling me that I really should be sad
But I know, we'll meet on the lake shore

There's not much for me to do
I probably wont be able to see you
I'll probably have to wait a long old time
Until I get back my peace of mind

It's now getting late on this old gravel shore
See the sun getting tired while it still screams out for more
At least someday we'll meet on the skyward train line
But for now, let's meet on the lake shore
Let's meet on the lake shore
Let's meet on the lake shore
Track Name: Are You Lonesome Tonight
Are you lonesome tonight? Do you miss me I say?
Are you sorry we drifted apart?
Does your memories cling to that bright summer day
When I kissed you and called you sweetheart?

Like the rose on the vine I am clinging to you
As I did when we drifted apart
I am wishing you back to that little shack
Where I kissed you and called you sweetheart

Does the chair in your parlor seem empty and bare?
Do you miss me and wish I was there?
Is your heart filled with pain? Shall I come back again?
Tell me, darling, are you lonesome tonight?

I have counted the days, I've counted the nights
I've counted the months and the years
I have counted on you since we drifted apart
Tell me, darling, are you lonesome tonight?
Track Name: I Wish That Evening Sun Was Rising
I wish that evening sun was rising
I wish that evening sun was rising
It's been a damn hard year
but I'll be safe when it's here
I wish that evening sun was rising

I hope that you're coming through my door
I hope that your love's coming even more
That big big fire in the sky
It's so hot I'm thinking I'll die
I hope that evening sun was rising

I wish that evening sun was rising
That star up in the blue dark sky
It is lord of all that it sees
Over the spirit and heart of the sea
I wish that evening sun was rising
Track Name: When I Leave Her Tonight
When I leave her tonight
I'll take the train to the bay
I won't shed a tear
Break her heart for years
When I leave her tonight

I don't no remorse
If I stay things just will get worse
Don't come knocking my door
Won't be home no more
After I leave her tonight

When I see her tonight
Tell her everything is just fine
Look straight past her
My mind has gone so far
I'll leave without her goodbyes

Not much left for me now
Tried everything I could do
Hear her voice one last time
Already made up my mind
That I'll leave her tonight
Track Name: Wheaton Town
Meet me down where the road bends
Where the wind hits heavy and the streetcars end
Our packs are heavy
We walk so slow
Miss my baby
Miss my soul

Meet me down in Wheaton town
Where the snow covers everything around
I need someone to stand my ground
I need somebody
Track Name: Anything That Everwill Be
Not space left in my mind
My feelings so hard to confine
Been drinking nearly all day
Drinking from these pools of decay

Nothing from their voice will relent
The static of their words filling me
Anything that ever will be
Will crush me like the weight of the sea

These walls here are so thin
It's judgement passing right through my skin
The noise from the hall
Tell me there's no hope here at all

Stuck here in the staticity
It's buildings crowding me
I wish you lived her with me
Track Name: Moviola
Moviola running through my head
Motion pictures of things I've said
Spread your pictures out on the floor

Reel to reel running through my mind
Everything I've ever said's a lie
Slept well in your grave last night
Still seemed very much alive

Moviola running through my head
Tired of everything I've ever said
Spread your pictures out on the floor
See a side I've never seen before
Track Name: Freedom Bound
I wish there was some poison in the well
I wish there was some poison in the well
It'd sure be a change of pace
And I'd force the hand of grace
I wish there was some poison in the well

I wish I could see His holy tomb
I wish I could see His holy tomb
I'm sure that he's not there
And my soul would not care
If I could not see His holy tomb

I've heard a thousand times the shots ring out
I've heard a thousand times the shots ring out
All the president's tears
Are just a battle cry
I've heard a thousand times the shots ring out

I wish I could change from the ways I've been
I wish I could change my ways but I'll always sin
I'm sorry for what I do
And I hope it dont bother you
Knowing that I'll probably just sin again

I wish I was on the next train to you
I wish I was on that next train to you
I feel it in my heart
That we won't always be apart
I wish I was on that next train to you

I'm hoping that I am freedom bound
I'm hoping that I am freedom bound
I'll keep breaking these rocks
'Till on heaven's gate I knock
I hope that I am freedom bound

Down that old river I'd love to roll
Down that old rive I'd llove to roll
Rather roll than be stuck
Here by the Devil's snow
Down that old river I'd love to roll
Track Name: Thoughts of Maria
There's not much left for you today
There's not much left for me to say
And I can't keep from crying
Knowing that you're done
I hope that you survive

I heard that you're doing just fine
Living day to day just getting by
And I can't keep from crying
I hope that you don't mind
I'm sure that you'll survive
Track Name: Prixesque
I wish I was a giant cloud
I don't know why
I'd float across the sky

I wear my feet across this land
Until I die
My feet know no command

The builder skews my view of you
I don't know why
I wish I could cry for you

The birds they fly across my eye
I don't know why
I cannot fly to you

The trees they grow outside your room
I wish that I
Could grow right where they do

Late at night you lay you down
I wish that I
Could lay right next to you

Before bed you say your prayer
And I wish I
Could say them just like you
Track Name: My Georgian Love
These leaves of grass
Are tangled around my knees
The warm wind blows
Through the tall of the trees

I'm wishing
I'm wishing
I can be that free

I''m finding you here
Through the rough of the waves
It sure isn't fair
How your stare saturates

I'm finding
I'm finding
I may be that free

The planets align
To give you sight through the stars
Oh, how can't you see
Everything's wrong with me

But, you can
But, you can
See me so free

My Georgian love
Sweep the dust off my hands
Sleep me through the shade
Take me from this land

Oh, you make
Oh, you make
Me feel so free.
