Track Name: Running Back To You
Running Back to You

Verse: Am - Em - F - C
Chorus: G - F - C

The sky can’t remember what it feels like to rain
And the ground's all dried up we’re all feeling the pain
The clouds can’t remember just which way to go
Now I'm here in the middle down this wide open road

We drove down to the ocean it was too cold to swim
So we laid down together with the sun on our skin
They say nothing lasts forever but I know memories do
So through this life and all the others I’ll keep coming back to you

Oh I keep on running back to you
In my mind I keep on running back to you
Oh I keep on running back to you
In my mind I keep running back to you

From one lover to another we need a calm place to hide
Lost in the bright yellow sunsets crossing over the line
Like dreams in an ocean hope stands at the shore
I see now something moves me closer than I’ve ever been before

Oh I keep on running back to you
In my mind I keep on running back to you
Oh I keep on running back to you
In my mind I keep running back to you

Oh, the sky can't remember what it feels like to rain
Track Name: I May Never Know
Capo 2nd fret
Verse: Em - C
Chorus: C - G - D - A
Bridge: Em - C / Em - C - D

There’s a storm behind my eyes
but you never hear a sound
it’s too late
to move to higher ground

I can’t tell you
what you want to hear
your mind has wandered
and mine ain’t clear

I’ve been waiting, waiting
waiting for the day
I can tell you, tell you
how it’s gonna be
when it’s coming, I
I may never,
I may never know,
I may never know,

I’m not gonna make this
a thing for you
my metaphors are thin
you can see right through

Force myself to tell a joke
to lighten the mood
but you’re not laughing
I’m always the fool.

I’ve been waiting, waiting
waiting for the day
I can tell you, tell you
how it’s gonna be
when it’s coming, I
I may never,
I may never know,
I may never know,

I know the words
to fix this
but they ain’t coming
across my lips.

I’ve been waiting, waiting
waiting for the day
I can tell you, tell you
how it’s gonna be
when it’s coming, I
I may never,
I may never know,
I may never know,
Track Name: Long Way Down
Long Way Down

Verse: Am - G - F
Chorus: Am - G - F
Bridge: Am - Em - F - C/B

Say I, don't mind at all
If you come now or someday
Goodtimes, answer your call
There's hope on the wind and it’s coming my way

It's a long way down
It's a long way down
It's a long way down
It's a long way

I know by now it’s right
Angels follow us with the sunshine
Your past is nothing to fight
The wild distant sun will keep us alive

It's a long way down
It's a long way down
It's a long way down
It's a long way

Signs will guide us
From the gardens of our youth
We’re all stars in a constellation
And I now line up with you
We can dance to a silent disco
Lights are floating around the room
We’ll stay listening til the morning
Lost in shadows of the moon

It's a long way down
It's a long way down
It's a long way down
It's a long way - down
Track Name: Apples & Knives
Apples and Knives

Capo 2nd fret
Chorus/Verse: Em G6sus4 A6sus4 (C - D)
Bridge: G6sus4 A6sus4 (C - D

Who am I?
A soldier in a fight?
A good man’s wife?
Apples and knives

Walk in unarmed and make an offer.
There’s a certain code of honor
And I carry enough for two.
Now you want me to choose.
Like you’re another Shan Yu.

Love, honor, obey, well which is it?
It’s a suicide mission
And we just might lose it all.
But I won’t let you fall.
Got our backs up against the wall.

Who am I?
I’m a soldier in a fight.
I’m a good man’s wife.
I’m apples and knives.

No power in the ‘verse can stop me,
I’m gonna get my man.
Now you see who I really am.

I’m apples and knives.
I’m a soldier in a fight.
And I’m a good man’s wife.
Track Name: New Coastline
New Coastline

Verse: F - D - E (sort of)
Chorus: Gm - Am - Bb

In the summer we went driving
Down through Devon on a new coastline
We went camping right on the sand
Under starlight, fire’s alight
You want to grow on right by the sea
We can be anything we want to be
Through this country we drove on down
Breakfast by oceans in a seaside town

All in the emptiness
You’ll find a little happiness
To be is to trust that it’s all ok

Silence is golden the water’s sing
No need for waiting now it’s happening
It feels like love is just flooding in
You’re in the right place living from within.

All in the emptiness
You’ll find a little happiness
To be is to trust that it’s all ok
Track Name: Mexican Home
Mexican Home
(by John Prine)

Verse - C - F / C - F / C - G - C - F/C
Chorus - F - C / F - C / F - C / C - G
C - F / C - F / C - G - C - F/C

It got so hot, last night, I swear
You couldn't hardly breathe
Heat lightning burnt the sky like alcohol
I sat on the porch without my shoes
And I watched the cars roll by
As the headlights raced
To the corner of the kitchen wall

Mama dear, your boy is here
From far across the sea
Waiting for that sacred core
that burns inside of me
And I feel a storm all wet and warm
Not ten miles away
Approaching my Mexican home

My God I cried, it's so hot inside
You could die in the living room
Take the fan from the window
Prop the door back with a broom
The cuckoo clock has died of shock
And the windows feel no pane
The air's as still as the throttle on a funeral train

Mama dear, your boy is here
From far across the sea
Waiting for that sacred core
that burns inside of me
And I feel a storm all wet and warm
Not ten miles away
Approaching my Mexican home

My father died on the porch outside
On an August afternoon
I sipped bourbon and cried
With a friend by the light of the moon
So its hurry! hurry! Step right up
It's a matter of life or death
The sun is going down
And the moon is just holding its breath

Mama dear, your boy is here
From far across the sea
Waiting for that sacred core
that burns inside of me
And I feel a storm all wet and warm
Not ten miles away
Approaching my Mexican home
Track Name: Valentine´s Day
Cold grey January morning
Woke up to find that you were gone
You left without a warning
No word or whisper that you were moving on

Now the house is cold and empty
The rooms are silent as a grave
All I’m left with is the memory
Of the joy and happiness, the happiness you gave

But now you’re back on Valentine’s Day
I see your face and there’s nothing you need to say
Just let me hold you, I know we’ll be okay
‘Cause you came back to me
On Valentine’s Day

I don’t care where you’ve been
I don’t care what you did
I don’t care if there’s a reason at all
All I know is that you’re here with me
And that’s all I’ll ever need
On Valentine’s Day (On Valentine’s Day)

Yes now you’re back on Valentine’s Day
I see your face and there’s nothing you need to say
Just let me hold you, I know we’ll be okay
‘Cause you came back to me
Oh yeah, you came back to me
Oh, you came back to me
On Valentine’s Day
Track Name: Tracks
Could you be the one for me this time
Before I met you I was dreaming of dancing in your arms
Maybe we were once connected in life
Right now the world’s giving us a chance to unite

As we go up and down these tracks
We’ll find obstacles in our way
But we’ll keep going up and down these tracks
Till the obstacles start to fade

Do you feel this soul connection so strong
Like the moon shining and smiling in the light of the sun
From this moment we’re connected, as one.
Everything we do, can we do it for love and for fun?

Do you remember
The stars, the road and the endless days
Our love was shining from the start
The waves are crashing
The sounds are feeding the light in our souls
I’ll always love you, from the heart

As we go up and down these tracks
We’ll find obstacles in our way
But we’ll keep going up and down these tracks
Till the obstacles start to fade
Track Name: When We Ride
Two lines unwinding, curving out of sight
the road ahead glows in the sun
two lives entwining, each mile a promise to believe
to believe in love

They take the short road
we'll take the long way around
we've got the time and we've got each other
lets keep it simple
so love can survive
we've got the strength and we've got each other
when we ride

Street lights flicker just like a silent film
no words just music in our minds
picture perfect when we close our eyes
pure dreams flowing by

They take the short road
we'll take the long way around
we've got the time and we've got each other
lets keep it simple
so love can survive
we've got the strength and we've got each other
when we ride.

Sleeping towns pass by
gone in the blink of an eye
we’ve got our whole world right here
just you and I
when we ride.
Track Name: Weight Is Gone
Weight is Gone

Verse: E - G#m
Chorus: E - Eb - G#m

You head to your little room again
feels like the walls are caving in
still life frozen on the bed
thoughts flood the pages in your head

when the weight is gone
you'll be free to disappear
you can walk that road again

hunger blackens in the night
pray that everything is right
lights buzz, flicker in the room
just take me, take me to the moon

when the weight is gone
you'll be free to disappear
you can walk that road again
when the weight is gone
when the weight is gone
when the weight is gone
Track Name: The Letter
Gimme a ticket for an aeroplane
Ain't got time to take a fast train
Lonely days are gone
I'm a-goin' home
My baby just a-wrote me a letter

I don't care how much money I gotta spend
Got to get back to my baby again
Lonely days are gone
I'm a-goin' home
My baby just a-wrote me a letter

Well, she wrote me a letter
Said she couldn't live without me no more
Listen mister, can't you see
I got to get back to my baby once more?
Anyway, yeah

Gimme a ticket for an aeroplane
Ain't got time to take a fast train
Lonely days are gone
I'm a-goin' home
My baby just a-wrote me a letter

Well, she wrote me a letter
Said she couldn't live without me no more
Listen mister, can't you see
I got to get back to my baby once more?
Anyway, yeah

Gimme a ticket for an aeroplane
Ain't got time to take a fast train
Lonely days are gone
I'm a-goin' home
My baby just a-wrote me a letter
My baby just a-wrote me a letter
