1.
Some people got a lot of nerve They are the wings on flightless birds Cell phone filtered They rearrange their lives like so much furniture Some people say a lot of words Rose-colored stained glass verbs Life is a picture But they live in a pixel Some people got a lot of nerve It's just a dog walking backwards It's a broken banjo It's not the end of the world
2.
We’re sharing a glass, you’re a ghost from the past You were trouble then, and you look like trouble now As you finger the cross around your neck You have charms that no one ever expected when you were in Sunday school You were always in my plans But you weren’t in my comfort zone And I know it’s so dumb now And I should leave you on your own I don’t remember any of these stories Ending well, ending well, ending well I don’t remember any of these stories Ending well, ending well We’re sharing a glass, not alone in the past We were trouble then, and we look like trouble now Now I’m counting the steps to your mother’s house From the bar up the street where we used to hang out, it’s dark now, but I know how You were always in my plans But god if you weren’t quite insane And I know it’s so dumb now But I could kiss you just the same

Easy 02:30
They say good girls don’t swear They just get even They go so easy on the eyes Until you're kicking and screaming Go easy on my eyes Go easy on me this time I was in love again I was in trouble And I knew that you were trouble When you walked in You have more freckles than there are stars in the sky And I have had enough drinks for two or three lifetimes How long do we wait? How long do we go? Let it shake, let it ride, let it roll, let it go How long do we wait? How long do we go? Let it shake, let it ride, let it roll, let it go

Weeds 02:17
Runaway gardens behind little boxes The more you throw, the more they grow Killer, killer bees Have got you crawling on your knees The weeds will always win Everyone loves you when they're down And when you’re down they’re hiding underground Hope and terror It's a comedy of error
5.
Me and you, we’re like the sun Those who get too close are trapped in revolution Me and you, we’re like the sun Better than radio and television It’s not contained by space and time And even when we’re an open book We don’t play out the storyline When we’re together, we’re like the sky Everything around us falls apart before our eyes When we’re together, we’re like the sky Hey, we can pick and choose our roles They’re always worth their weight in gold
