Track Name: Eastern Standard Time
Rain comes down like railroad spikes on just you and I
I can hear train whistles blowing and children crying
my life is spent trying to get back home to see the mirror of your eyes
hope that you will be there when I die

way I've been sleeping my back and shoulder's tired
I can hear you crying through the moonlight and the pine
find myself rambling through the land of the blind
hope that you will be there when I die

tonight I cross the border with persimmon and wine
i can hear you crying through the moonlight and the pine
miss you just the same in eastern standard time
hope that you will be there when I die
Track Name: Lay My Rituals Down
she gives me looks that recall me
holds up my trembling like a newborn child
my heart and mind are fraying
like two catfish in the clay
I've given more to love than I have taken away

lay my rituals down
suffered in the hollow ground
lay my rituals

my fears are growing dimmer
with each passing of the moon
I thought I lost my shadow down in Lousville, KY
but now I realize
what is hidden in the darkness always comes to the light

lay my rituals down
suffered in the hollow ground
lay my rituals
Track Name: Old Lover's Songs
We've shared enough and danced enough Old Lover's Songs
to know that when the love is gone
Old lover's can't be friends

I've sung enough and writ enough Old Lover's Songs
enough Old Lover's Songs
to know that when the love is gone
Old lover's can't be friends

We look through the trees
we look through the light and we
only find leaves and birds taken to flight
the cold chiller of winter takes a stand
left with your heart in your hands

We look through the trees
we look through the light and we
only find leaves and birds taken to flight
the cold chiller of winter takes a stand
left with your heart in your hands
Track Name: Full Force Gale
There was so much I wanted to tell you
wanted to tell you before I left
One more trip out through the Atlantic
and I'll be home with enough money to buy you that wedding dress.
I'm still wearing my bloodied, lucky baseball cap
from that ballgame we went to in Boston, Mass
and that pictures you sent
though they were only meant for me
I couldn't help letting the other guys sneak a peak
and I know...

You'll be watching from a lighthouse safe from rain
I'll be riding a full force gale into Maine
now these sails are bending I can't tell dusk from dawn
I'm not sure if I'll ever make it home

There was so much I wanted to do besides
fishing and fighting but, fishing and fighting were all that I knew
I feel the rain on my fingers
Not much left here to do except count the rolling waves
and I know...

You'll be watching from a lighthouse safe from rain
I'll be riding a full force gale into Maine
now these sails are bending I can't tell dusk from dawn
I'm not sure if I'll ever make it home
