Track Name: Alaska Man
I don't smoke but I'll take a cigarette, so you bought two just to get your dollar back.
Who's that man in leather black? With Alaskan eyes and northern lights. With Alaskan eyes and north lights.

He showed me all, with barely no words floating from his mouth. Oh, lesson learned. Alaska man come take me home. Alaska man come build me a home.

He said everybody's from somewhere. Girl even you've got a song to sing. And all this time where has he been? Strong man in black black ink. He's a strong man in black black ink.

He showed me all, with barely no words floating from his mouth. Oh, lesson learned. Alaska man come take me home. Alaska man come build me a home.

He showed me all, with barely no words floating from his mouth. Oh, lesson learned. Alaska man come take me home. Alaska man come build me a home. Alaska man come back for me. Alaska man came back for me.
Track Name: Into the Wild (New Copenhagen)
It's late and the early summer rain has fallen and the horses are sound asleep. Your voice on the phone it's been so long I guess I'll keep going on.

I'm going out and into the wild. I'm going out on my own. I'm gonna find me a new Copenhagen, a brand new home.

No trust for nobody not even me but now the music is playing and it's playing me free. So I'll chase them footsteps, a real man he knows what ground to put his souls on.

They led me out and into the wild. They led me out on my own. I'm out to find me a new Copenhagen, a brand new home. New Copenhagen, brand new home.

Hos words are true wisdom and you're too good to live for and I'm sure there's so much more. And taking my chances one by one I look back to sing "it's all right babe don't think twice"

Cause now I'm out and in the wild. Now I'm on my own. I think I see me a new Coepnhagen, a brand new home. New Copenhagen, brand new home.
Track Name: Horse Chetsnuts & Riversides
He was long lost swirling around, just like me "come with" he said it'll be worth your while. Make you fall so deep into the night.

So drunk on ocean breeze and new impressions we take our first steps into the night. Show me your life by the sea? To make me fall so deep into the night.

And his reply, a stoke down my back and so we'd dace down the dock to the music of bells and damp air. Both too scared I'd let him taste, to make him fall so deep into the night.

And last he'd lay me on the bed. In need of love love love to forget. And as the street lights they creep through the blinds, I'd get lost in every breath of his skin, only to fall so deep now that I've fallen I've got what I need.
Track Name: Deer & I
Bleed like an open wound oh old deer I'll carry you home.
Sleep like a newborn, when we awake the horses will take us home.
Far, far from here and home, home...

Shiveres go down my spine as we pass drunks and junkies and homeless on this cold cold night.
So I seek to hide behind you old deer, to take me home from here.
Far far from here and home, home...

Behind us there's a raging winter storm to keep us from moving on.
But we, we're headed for the pines cause we are done living like kings to die like new borns.
We're going far far from here.
Far far from here.
Far far far from here and home.
Track Name: His Song
Don't you kick me down don't you kick me to the ground, cause I want to be around when you need somebody I want to be around you.

Don't you send me on the train cause you know, honey I'd go insane if I can't be around, when you need somebody if I can't be around you.

Be around you. You.

I know you've got another man but honey I'm doing everything that I can, I just want to be around when you need somebody I want to be around you. Be around you.
Track Name: Untitled
He had nothing to live up to, cause his daddy was just an old beatning drunk. "Baby you can live of nothing if you don't have anything" said the dreamer of dreams drinking all of his money away.
And God knows he was a wise man so aware of his imperfections he sang "Honey, I'm doing everything that I can. I'm doing everything that I can do do do do..."

She grew up as the black sheep. A beautiful daughter of a town priest but with an urge to get out of there she'd follow the man who said "baby, you know we can go anywhere".
And God knows she was a tough one, but she had to leave him with a screeming kid on her hand, she said "honey I'm doing all that I can. I'm doing everything I can do do do..."

So here I am now I'm in a strange land, with the feeling there's more to life I'm not quite catching and my inherited urge to get out of here does so I never feel home anywhere. And God knows, he knows I wanna save the world but, being just a dreamer of dreams all I can do is say "well, I'll do what I can. I'll do anything I can do do do..."
Track Name: Little Star
Oh oh little star, how did fail to recognize and oh oh litte star they say you learn from mistakes but you you give me no other way.
And oh oh little star, dry your tears it'll be ok cause oh oh little star if you go I'l follow cause you, you give me no other way.

It's been like this every year every day, and the images of you drive me insane, like she said, love you to the depths to the breath and the hights, and my souls can reech when we're feeling out of sight, yeah my soul can reech when we're feeling out of sight.

Oh oh little star, please tell me where do we go from here cause oh oh little star I'm scared too my body's shaking and it's filling up with fear.
Oh oh little star, how come it's so quiet when you're near?
And I know little star we've had our doubts but I'm here for good now, so don't you fear.

It's been like this every year every day, and the images of you drive me insane, like she said, love you to the depths to the breath and the hights, and my soul can reech when we're feeling out of sight, yeah my soul can reech when we're feeling out of sight. And your soul can reach me. And our souls could've reached all hights.
Track Name: Warfares
Things come and go or so they say, yet I'm not so sure I want to live by their ways. Girl keep your head up high and don't you cry well I'll still walk these roads with a storm by my side and I'll keep fighting for my life.

So when our heartaches turns to dust and our bones they get rusty will you come come come back for me. And when your warfares they are over and sleeves they are dry will you try to come back for me. Cause I want you, I want you to come back for me.

So behind Alaskan mountains in self sufficiency you'll find me waiting missing the way you look at me cause your scent still haunts me through deadliest nights. A ghost to keep me, keep me paralyzed. And I'll keep fighting for my life.

So when our heartaches turns to dust and our bones they get rusty will you come come come back for me. And when your warfares they are over and sleeves they are dry will you try try try to come back for me.
So when our heartaches turns to dust and our bones they get rusty will you come come come back for me. When your warfares they are over and sleeves they are dry will you try to come back for me. Cause I want you, I want you to come back for me.
Track Name: Bitter & Scared
So far I've seen most of the world, yet I've never, no I've never seen a smile like yours.
And it's funny how it seems just like yeaterday that your fingers ran through my hair.

And now I sit here once again it's 2 AM reminded of your soft soft kiss. And I know, I know that you care cause you said so, you're just too bitter and scared.

Can you believe it's been more than two years? I'm wondering, I'm wondering if we'll get them back? Cause these feelings they're frightning to me, they make me shake and I feel it all the way into my bones.

And now I sit here once again it's 2 AM reminded of your soft soft kiss. And I know, I know that you care cause you said so, you're just too bitter and scared.

I see the bruising that's tearing you appart it's tearing you far so far away from me. You always spoke with a quiet whisper cause you never, no you never thought you'd be heard.
Track Name: Lavender Heart
She's back in her home now all alone, her bones they are cold where did the hope go? He took it from her with his lies and his law, said "girl this world is real too and it's raw", said "girl this world is real too and it's raw".
But it's pouring and raining oh so hard I've heard every raindrop has a mission of heart, so tell me what is yours were you blind from the start? I know I've been warned but I'm still pure at heart. Though I've been warned I'm still pure at heart.

I've been deaf, dumb and blind we all make mistakes and I let my tears roll oh I'm awake. I just hope that this one is on you, oh I hope that this one is on you.

I'll gather my strength and I'll look for that love, for my rosemary field for my lavender heart and I'll find it there by that waterfront that you so gently kept me from, that you so gently kept me from.
And behind that shore I'll sing a song for you, for your mended heart cause you're himan too, and I'll gather them raindrops from your eyes to see that you are as broken as broken as me, yes you are as broken as broken as could be.

I've been deaf, dumb and blind we all make mistakes and I let my tears roll oh I'm awake. I just hope that this one is on you, oh I hope that this one is on you.

I've been deaf, dumb and blind we all make mistakes and I let my tears roll oh I'm awake. I've been deaf, dumb and blind we all make mistakes but as the world sleep thank God I'm awake. I just hope that this one is on you, oh I hope that this one is on you, oh I know that this one is on you.
Track Name: That Core
Restless hearts fall apart if they stay for far too long, and aching bones get cold with nowhere to go. And searching for that core in your surroundings. Confused and shattered by all you think is gone.

And God knows that I've been naive. I've gotten swept away by these northern winds, I am sure, he's proud of me.

Big bangs and war what for? Am I here for you? I could tell you so and everything has been done before you. Despite this trouth doesn't mean it's been done by you. And wisdom comes with growth so you'll go, go grow.

And God knows that I've been naive. I've gotten swept away by these northern winds, I am sure, that God knows that I've been naive. I've gotten swept away by these northern winds, I am sure, he's proud of me.
Track Name: December Nights
Carry me tonight take me all the way home, let our young hearts grow wild from this fire, and I'll never stop chansing wild horses too fast to follow, so may the wolves help us howel for the moon on a cold December night.

Everything we long for on the other side of fear, you've got me down down from here, to the bottom of your ocean without a single breath of air, come bring me back again on a cold, cold December night.

I'm pining for the woods for the foxes and the bees, and I'll go spend my days amongst them trees, patiently I'll wait here maybe your thoughts will cross me, we'll all go back as friends on a cold, and cold December night.
