Track Name: You Can't Have Me
I remember way back when you said you loved me
That was then
I had such awful thoughts
I was still nursing a broken heart

You asked, "Do you want me?"
I said, "Yes, I do want you."
You asked, "Do you want me?"
I said, "Yes I do want you."

And you said,
"You can't have me."
"You can't have me"
"You can't have me
and you never
ever
will."
Track Name: Lost Love Blues
I went out walking on a Sunday
On a Sunday just enjoying the breeze
In my mind I was hoping that one day
That breeze would blow my baby back to me

Oh, that I had been more honest
Honest with the only one I love
Would I'd never been so foolish
She's the one I'm still dreaming of

She's gone away from me looks like forever
Forever will she be gone from my life
I try but still I can't forget her
I think of her, I hang my head, and cry

Oh, that I had been more honest
Honest with the only one I love
Would I'd never been so foolish
She's the one I'm still dreaming of

If there's one you find yourself loving
Grab on and hold that person tight
Without love, life is less than nothing
If you find love, treat that person right

Oh, that I had been more honest.
Honest with the only one I love.
Would I'd never been so foolish.
She's the one I'm still dreaming of.
Track Name: When You Had Sex With My Best Friend
When you had sex with my best friend
It really fucked with my head
When you had sex with my best friend
It had me wanting to make myself dead
There was this pain I never could explain
When you had sex with my best friend

When you had sex with my best friend
I finally saw your face
When you had sex with my best friend
your character became plain
It was another instance of cognitive dissonance
When you had sex with my best friend

And maybe, by now, you've moved on past that phase
Maybe, by now, you're not the type who would betray
But I doubt it
I doubt it!
I doubt it most of the time
Lately I've been thinking about
How can I learn to trust again?
Lately I've been thinking about
How to wisely choose a friend
I forgive you
I forgive you!
You did the best you could
I forgive you
I forgive you
Be at peace in this world

When you had sex with my best friend
it was like that Ace of Bass song (I saw the sign)
When you had sex with my best friend
It was karma upon someone
There are these thoughts you can share only once
When you had sex with my best friend
Track Name: Bang Bang Bolo
Bolo's at my window
Sitting on the ledge
Bolo's at my window
With bad thoughts in his head

Bang bang Bolo
Bolo bang bang
Bang bang Bolo
Oh, Bolo bang bang

Bolo tried to jump out
Got caught on a nail
Bolo tried to jump out
I saw him hanging there

Bang bang Bolo
Bolo bang bang
Bang bang Bolo
Oh, Bolo bang bang

I jumped across for Bolo
Tried to help him down
By no fault of my own, though
I knocked him in the crown

Bang bang Bolo
Bolo bang bang
Bang bang Bolo
Oh, Bolo bang bang
Track Name: Miss The Mississippi
I loved a girl in Minneapolis
Once, in the corner of a bar we did kiss
I showed her hers and she showed me mine
But now we are separated for all time

I am sad and weary
Far away from home
Miss the Mississippi and you, dear
Miss the Mississippi and you

I've traveled across this great big country
Escaping and chasing my own destiny
She's in my thoughts, though I've truly moved on
Still, there are times I'm sad she's not the one

I am sad and weary
Far away from home
Miss the Mississippi and you, dear
Miss the Mississippi and you
Track Name: It's Love
My heart is a bitter buffalo
All these disappointments just go to show
It's love from me to you

Thinking back now on the places I've been
How hard it was to be a decent friend
It's love from me to you

I can't help but remember the things that we did
I can't help but remember, though I'd rather forget

Rain was coming down and my tongue went dumb
You're the only one who saw where I was coming from
It's love from me to you

You were slinging coffee for the CIA
I barely had enough money to even pay
It's love from me to you

You put on a new t-shirt and showed it to me
I felt so ashamed at what I'd tried to see

I could write a million stupid letters and never properly say
Sorry for the way I treated you that day
It's love from me to you

I try to make things normal but it never works out
Why should you trust the words from my mouth?
It's love from me to you

I broke every rule in their book to see what is good
Now I can't take any of it back though I sometimes wish I could

So sick of feeling like a sleazy dirtbag
Meaningless sex is such a drag
It's love from me to you

I'd never known love until that day in your bed
I couldn't believe what you had just said
It's love from me to you
Track Name: Healing Broken Hearts
There in my first full bed,
out came the words
that you'd never said, red
maple leaves were falling all around,
the roof and walls were all gone
the sound would echo!
Echo! with all of our unspoken thoughts,
the haves and have nots
have nothing on us,
hop on my bus
and I'll show you what's
been eating at my lately the ideas will
Echo! Echo!

Healing broken hearts
Healing broken hearts

Coffee and tea
won't satisfy me
when I'm feeling free
and hydrating.
The salads are dressed with sesame.
The lovers are draped in sounds waving.
They echo! Echo!
It's getting so that
we recognize facts.
But we've not reached the point
where we can ask
what it will take
to get past the past:
A lifetime of pain
from unfair attacks that
echo! Echo!

Healing broken hearts
Healing broken hearts

This is the way that we will move on
This is the way that we will move on
This is the way that we will move on
This is the way that we will move on
Track Name: No More Blue Tomorrows
I'll show you light now
Endless streaming light
No more blue tomorrows

Love of the spirit
Rooted in mercy
No more blue tomorrows

This is compassion
For all those shortcomings
No more blue tomorrows

Simple forgiveness
Promise to forgive yourself
No more blue tomorrows

I know how hard it gets
to always do your best.
When your best they do reject
and you're feeling
so worthless.

Now it's getting easier
Seems like our suffering could be ending
No more blue tomorrows

It never will be perfect but it's
Getting better everyday
No more blue tomorrows
Track Name: All Those Dreams
My brother
My little brother
Sometimes you let them down so bad
They care about you so much
And you reject them out of hand

My brother
My little brother
The one who never did much anyhow
Can't you see that we've always believed?
We're gonna help you up that hill

It's gonna be okay
All those dreams are coming true
It's gonna be okay
All those dreams are coming true

My brother
My little brother
The one who never got a chance
Find yourself a cosmic lover
Take a pretty girl to the dance

My brother,
My little brother
The one who is still alive
Maybe you're out there somewhere
Here you're almost twenty-five

It's gonna be okay
All those dreams are coming true
It's gonna be okay
All those dreams are coming true
I bet you're a dreamer.
Me? I'm a dreamer, too

It's getting really beautiful
Just like we always dreamed it's beautiful
We can finally see it's beautiful
And all it is
Is peace
