Grapevine 

Crawling over the grapevine just as the sun was rising 

Chasing water up the siphon next to me 

Central valley in my rear view 

The devil down and heaven above 

And you, somewhere there in LA 

And I don't know if you changed your number 

I don't know if you changed your name 

I don't know if he makes you happy 

But I know you're in this city just the same 

I got two tons of truck coming over this hill 

I'm driving on coffee and force of will 

This dust on my jeans form a week of living free 

One night stand in my rearview

tasted a little like love

Said she didn't like girls but somehow she liked me 

 

And I don’t know if you changed your number 

No I don’t know if you changed your name 

And I don’t know if he makes you happy 

But I know you’re in this city just the same 

Rolling down on my last gallon of gas 

Everybody’s waking up along the Tejon Pass 

With this light coating everything in Technicolor sheen 

Two yellow lines in my rearview 

Snaking back to where I’ve been 

and you somewhere there in LA 

Hey There You 

Hey there you, it’s been a long time 

Hey there you, it’s been a long time 

Are you still wearing those clothes? 

Thinking that nobody knows? 

But me 

Hey there you, I haven’t forgotten 

You on the jukebox playing in my head 

You in the slide show playing in my bed 

You round the corner of my next turn of thoughts 

Hey there you, it’s been a long time 

 

Hey there you, it’s been a minute 

Do you have all that you want? Did you win it? 

Or are you still dreaming of me 

And all that you wanted to be? 

Hey there you, it’s been a long time 

 

Hey there you, I want to know it 

If I left visible scars can you show it? 

Cause you left without leaving a trace 

Like I only imagined your face 

Hey there you why do you haunt me? 

 

You on the jukebox playing in my head 

you in the slide show playing in my bed 

You round the corner of my next turn of thoughts 

Hey there you it’s been a long time 

Nicotine 

Your love’s a cigarette 

burning at the tip 

It tastes like smoke and fire 

sliding through my lips 

And everything seems better 

but this feeling that I get 

It doesn’t mean I’m living 

it just means it hasn’t killed me yet 

 

I breathe you in and hold it 

Trying not to choke 

I know it isn’t good for me 

But I take another toke 

And everything seems better 

but this feeling that I get 

It doesn’t mean I’m living 

it just means it hasn’t killed me yet 

 

And you mark me 

With these shadows on my teeth 

Yeah you mark me 

But you give me sweet relief 

Yeah you mark me 

With these stains under my nails 

Every time I put you down 

I know I’m gonna fail 

 

Your love is nicotine 

Seeping through my skin 

Someday I’m gonna quit you 

But I couldn’t tell you when 

And everything seems better 

but this feeling that I get 

It doesn’t mean I’m living 

it just means it hasn’t killed me yet 

Roll Another Dollar 

Well she rolled in like the weather 

Well she came down like the rain 

Don’t know where from but she landed in this city 

like the cat had dragged her in 

And she looked better dirty 

than anyone raised clean 

Sitting on the broken steps of the cathedral 

Where an angel should’ve been 

Roll another dollar, take another train 

Put down roots then break the ground 

And pull them up again 

Pour another whiskey, raise it to the sky 

then toss it back and hit the town 

Like practicing to fly 

Well she had eyes like steel shooters 

Well she had hair of emerald green 

She had every city sidewalk at her mercy 

In underneath a week 

She asked me for a light outside the barroom 

But she was made of kerosene 

So I just breathed her in til I went dizzy 

And woke up on the street 

Roll another dollar, take another train 

Build a life then light a match 

And burn it down again 

Roll another barrel with a single bead of lead 

one in six just take the risk 

and put it to your head 

 

Well I don’t know where she went to when she left me 

But I know she went there quick 

And I’m just another piece of past she has no patience for 

Even then she never did 

Roll another dollar take another train 

Choose a mark and break a heart 

Then do it all again 

Pour another whiskey, raise it to the sky 

then toss it back and hit the road 

without a last goodbye 

Right About Now 

You’ve got that song that you’re strumming 

And I’ve got this heart like a drum and 

Doesn’t it seem like they were made to play in time? 

You’ve got that smile that you’re hiding 

And I’ve got this patience abiding 

Cause I’m willing to wait for all of this to fall in line 

Well everything seems to be possible right about now 

Feels like something's gonna happen between us but 

I couldn’t say how 

All I know is that you are so pretty 

I sat down and wrote you this ditty 

And everything seems to be possible right about now 

 

You’ve got those boots made for walking 

But so far you're still sitting here talking 

Doesn't seem like you're planning to hit the road 

I've been thinking but haven't yet told you 

That I just wanna stay here and hold you 

Tho I don't think that should come as any surprise 

 

Cause everything seems to be possible right about now 

Feel like something's gonna happen between us 

But I couldn’t say how 

All I know is you are so handsome 

I’m gonna do my best to land some 

And everything seems to be possible right about now 

 

We've got plenty of time until morning 

But only fair I give you a warning 

That I'm intending to keep you up til dawn 

I don't know what the next day brings 

Never been good predicting those things 

But everything seems to be possible right about now 

 

Yeah everything seems to be possible right about now 

Feel like something's gonna happen between us 

But I couldn’t say how 

All I know is you are so dreamy 

Looking in my eyes like you really see me 

And everything seems to be possible right about now 

Someday When 

Send me a letter by mail 

write a new page in our history 

hold tight and wait for me there 

til I can reach you 

 

I know the distance seems far 

but I'm building an airplane to fly to you 

when I do 

this will be nothing 

 

Someday one day 

we can start over again 

someday one day 

biding our time until then 

someday one day 

we'll have a chance to begin 

We'll be all right 

Someday when 

 

Holding your face in my hands 

watching your smile in my camera 

Counting the moments til then 

wait for me there 

 

Someday the sound of your voice 

the look in your eyes when you reach for me 

when you do 

I will be done for 

 

Someday one day 

we can start over again 

someday someday 

biding our time until then 

someday one day 

we'll have a chance to begin 

We'll be all right 

Someday when
