Track Name: Blue Sky
Moline
Saying what she didn't mean
Making like a Dairy Queen
Milking me when I was never gonna be the king

Well, I swear
She feathered up her little nest
to treat me like a little guest
She got the best and I swallowed all the rest

All she needed was a blue sky hangin' 'round
To keep the rain from coming down

I fell
Ran off half cocked pell mell
Got caught smoking in her little hell
Devil or angel, I could never tell

I jumped fence
Now I'm living in the present tense
No more little accidents
No more sideshow me the main event

All she needed was a blue sky hangin' 'round
To keep the rain from coming down
All she needed was a blue sky hangin' 'round
I need to know, I need to go
No rain
No rain
I got caught in the rain before
Telling you baby, won't get caught no more

All she needed was a blue sky hangin' 'round
All she needed was a blue train leaving town
All she needed was a blue sky hangin' 'round
I need to know, I need to go
All she needed was a blue sky hangin' 'round
All she needed was a blue train leaving town
All she needed was a blue sky hangin' 'round
All she needed
All she needed
All she needed
Track Name: Flowers In The Sand
You make a lot of money
She makes a lot of time
Counts it out and hands it over to you
Never asking nothing in return
'Cuz she trusts you
Believes in you too

You go around in circles
She goes home alone
You could be there with her
But she's still on her own
She's not looking for miracles
She's just looking for love
All she wants is you, because that's enough

She makes it all so easy
You make it all so hard
You've give her dirt
And tie her to the earth
She plants another flower in the sand

You got all the best excuses in the world
But they're not reasons
They don't even rhyme
She's a good woman
But you treat her like a bad little girl
She's a loser
In your little game
The victim of your big crime
She's always trying to work it out
You're only trying just to fit her in
To your self-serving plans and schemes
She thinks you're worth it
So she hangs around
And hangs another day on shattered hopes
And battered little dreams

You trample down your dirt
And harvest weeds
Her love grows
And she waters it so carefully
You scatter all her seedlings
With one wave of your hand
And she plants another flower in the sand
Track Name: Outskirts
I'm gonna move
Way out on the outskirts of town
Everybody dogged me
Yeah they dogged me right on down
They hit me once
They hit me twice
They hit me three times people
But that's alright, alright

'Cuz I'm gonna move
Yeah, I'm gonna move
Way outside of town

Yeah, they stick it to me
Right to my face
They put me right down to the ground
Put me right in my place
They hit me once
They hit me twice
They hit me three times people
But that's alright, alright

'Cuz I'm gonna move
Yeah, I'm gonna move
Way out on the outskirts, outskirts
Way outside of my town

I'm tellin' you people
I'll tell you right now
You better watch your step
Get yourself
Right out of this big bad town, yeah
They'll hit you once
They'll hit you twice
They'll hit you three times people
Three times people
But that's alright, alright

'Cuz I'm gonna move
Yeah I'm gonna move, well
Yeah I'm gonna move
I'm gonna, gonna move, well
Way out on the outskirts, outskirts
Way out on the outskirts
Outside of my town
Track Name: The Boat Ashore
Woke up in the morning and it felt like the black of night
Tumbled out of bed, tripped on my Bible, stumbled over the light
Blinded by the break of day
I shut my eyes, I was alone
Couldn't say my prayers
Good God Almighty
Where's my telephone?

And now I know
Now I know
Know what you meant when you told me
You wanted to hold me
And hold me
Hold me forever
Hold me and never
Tell me you'll ever
Let me go

No I did not know
I didn't understand the plan
You had for me
And it isn't that I don't believe
I do believe that you really love me
Yeah, but how do I reciprocate
When there's nothing good in me?

Say it's so
Say it's so
Say it till I really hear it when you say
Don't fear it
Let go

And now I know
Now I know
Know what you meant when you told me
You wanted to hold me
And hold me
Hold me forever
Hold me and never
Tell me you'll ever
Let me go

Crash me, wash me up on your shore
Drifted way too far from my moorings and more
Overboard the oars went
Relentless was the roll
Of the restless sea set me free from its treacherous shoals

Don't let me go don't let me
Don't let me go
Now that I have run this boat ashore don't let me go
Now I know, I know I know you like never before
You wait you waited for me forevermore
Now I know...
Track Name: The Stellazine Prophecy
I've got this great new drug
her name is Stella
she shines like a beautiful star
make you real happy, fella

if your heart's like ice
she'll melt it
and make you feel love
like you've never, ever felt it

she can cool your temper
or bring your temperature around
make your ears perk up
to every little sound

she's got the goods
to take all the bad right out of you
turn your sad into glad
be a mother and dad to you, too

yeh, that's Stella
she's so good in a pinch
she'll extend the length of your pleasure
make you grow another inch

you can fly to Peru
you can become a priest
write books for fun or profit
or be a prophet, at least

reams and reams of clever scripts
man, you'll playwright them all
take a trip
take a stumble
but she'll never let you fall

forget all of the history books you read
she'll obliterate the past
and eliminate all of your petty little needs

forget all the crime and the hatred
you've witnessed all these human years
sit back and let Stella
plot your future without any fears

she's one hell of a chick
she's one heaven of a ride
man, she rides like paradise
but you're still gonna die
so pray that she's there to greet you
when you get to the other side
'cuz there's nothing more sad
than a man alone at the alter
without his blushing bride

Stella
Stella
Stella
that's it
Track Name: The Best I Had
Look in my eyes again
As blue as they've ever been
but so far down is not the end

I got a little crazy
Left you out in a purple haze
Now and then, I wonder
How you've been, babe?

Will you want it
Will you believe it
Knowing you'll live for ever and ever
never alone
in a life going home
is the best I have...
is the best I have...

I had a dream, I saw you
Left me in tears and swollen eyes
Come back baby while there's still time
Please let me hold you and tell you
that all that I have in hope for you
One more time together
I'd think about that if you wanted

CHORUS

Come to me, I want you to come back and see
Take the lovin' when you come to me, you come to me

It's possible to feel little lost 'til your heart unwinds
Give it time
Track Name: Blood and Roses/Pearls Before Swine
*It was long ago
Seems like yesterday
Saw you standing in the rain
Then I heard you say

I want to love but it comes out wrong
I want to live but I don't belong
I close my eyes and I see
Blood and roses

Love flowers in the springtime
October we were wed
In wintertime the roses died
The blood ran cold
And then she said

I want to love but it comes out wrong
I want to live but I don't belong
I close my eyes and I see
Blood and roses

**Ashes for your veil
Ashes for your veil
Veil of ashes
Veil of ashes
Veil of ashes
Track Name: Snowblind
I'm snowblind
Whooooo snowblind
I'm so blind
And I don't know what I'm doing

It's so bright and so white

Won't you stop the light
I hate how it shines
Well, it's in my face, it's in my eyes
In my face, in my eyes and
It shines day and night, day and night

When day is night and black is white
Everything looks like a fright

Wrong is right and day is night
Night and day
Wish you were the one
Wish wish wish
You were, you were, you were the one

Night and day underneath the sun
I wish I could see the sun
But I'm snowblind
