Tracklist

23 Days

length: 3:32

My name looks unfamiliar on this barking marquee sign
And the love that I've been gettin' I can't really call it mine
This blacktop ribbon winds me down an unforgiving road
When I think about my baby on the other side of home
I say oh, oh-oh-oh, oooh, I gotta go
I say oh, oh-oh-oh, oooh

Hey, hey, hey, on my way
23 days gone by, why can't eagles fly
Hey, hey, hey, love don't break
23 nights of blue carry me back to you
Yeah

Another song get scribbled on this napkin in my lap
As we burn another circle on this god forsaken map
The droning of the engines and the moaning of the wheels
It's a fortuneteller's melody, it's how you make me feel
I say oh, oh-oh-oh, oooh, I gotta go
I say oh, oh-oh-oh, oooh

Hey, hey, hey, on my way
23 days gone by why can't eagles fly
Hey, hey, hey ,love don't break
23 nights of blue carry me back to you

Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa

Yeah, Albuquerque's never felt colder
One mile higher all the way to Boulder
Okalahoma City always looks pretty
'Cause it's half way home
Yeah, windshield wipers, broken white lines
Lord, don't let me loose my mind
23 days to Tennessee time
And I'm back to you

Ooooh, oh-oh-oh, oooh, yeah, yeah, yeah

Hey, hey, hey, on my way
23 days gone by why can't eagles fly
Hey, hey, hey, love don't break
23 nights of blue carry me back to you
Whoa-oh, whoa-ooooh
Whoa-oh, whoa-ooooh, oh
Whoa-oh, whoa-ooooh

Whatever It Takes

length: 3:25
Up all night, thinkin' 'bout the day
You pull me close then you push me away
You could keep pretending you got everything you need
But I don't give up so easily

(chorus)
Whatever it takes, I'm gonna try
Whatever it takes, day or night
I'll climb up that mountain
I'll touch the sky
Everything all in one day
Whatever it takes

Life gets hard and nothin's ever free
You don't believe in the things you can't see
But every now and then we need
Someone to pull us through
And maybe that someone is you

(chorus)
Whatever it takes, I'm gonna try
Whatever it takes, day or night
I'll climb up that mountain
I'll touch the sky
Everything all in one day
Whatever it takes

It's not in my mind
I can feel it
Love will unwind
This is real
I'm not going away
You can wonder but I'm willing to stay
Up all night, hmmm, thinkin' bout the day
You'll pull me close and know just what to say

(repeat chorus twice)

Bring It on Back

length: 3:48
What if I said I wanted to hold you
For more than just one night
Oh, what if I said, I said
I wanted to show you
It all, it all, it all
Is gonna be alright

I'm a good thing
Make sure you know it
You only get one shot
Baby, don't blow it
I'm the green, green grass
As far as your big brown eyes can see
And if you leave
You'll wanna bring it on back to me, yeah

I know, I know, I know I ain't easy
To get a handle on
It don't take more than enough to please me
But I don't wanna, don't wanna wait to long

'Cause I'm a good thing
Make sure you know it
You only get one shot
Baby, don't blow it
Yeah, I'm the green, green grass
As far as your big brown eyes can see
And if you leave
You'll wanna bring it on back to me, yeah
Oh, oh, yeah

Open the door your ready to walk through
I'm where you prayer was meant to land
Oh, give me the holes in your heart
I promise that I will do anything, everything
You know I can

Look at me, baby
I'm a good thing
Make sure you know it, yeah
You only get one shot
Baby, don't blow it
Yeah, I'm the green, green grass
As far as your big brown eyes can see
And if you leave, oh, if you leave
You'll wanna bring it on back to me, yeah
Bring it on back to me
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Bring it back, bring it back, yeah
Bring it on back to me

I'm Taking the Wheel

length: 3:15
I slammed the door a thousand times
What's mine is mine
What's yours is mine
It's a long drive uphill
Sit back I'm taking the wheel

So many highs so many lows
You move too quick to ever show
Exactly how you feel
So I'm takin' the wheel

[Chorus]
Everybody says it can't be done
We drive each other crazy but
You're still the one
You make it hard to stay
Harder to run

You and me we're quite a pair
We make a mess out of thin air
You know I love you still
But I'm takin' the wheel

[Chorus]

It's a knock-down drag-out fight
Tongue-tied and twisted we can go all night
You're comin' with me and here's the deal
Baby slide on over
I'm takin' the wheel

So many roads we're left to take
So much history to make
We bend but we don't break

[Chorus]

It's a knock-down drag-out fight
Tongue-tied and twisted we can go all night
You're comin' with me and here's the deal
Baby slide on over

And leavin' this crazy tug-of-war
Only makes me want you more
You're comin' with me that's how I feel
Baby slide on over
I'm takin' the wheel

Oh yeah

I slammed the door a thousand times
What's mine is mine
What's yours is mine
It's a long drive uphill
Sit back I'm taking the wheel

God Bless the American Housewife

length: 3:11
Look at me I'm gorgeous in my housecoat with my coffee cup
I bend to get the paper
Every neighbor's trying to check me out
Look at me I'm lovely as I wave beside my mini van
Look at how my diamonds seem to sparkle on the garbage can

God bless the American housewife
How she does it all I'll never know
God bless the American housewife
She could use a miracle for sure
God bless the American housewife
Cleaning up the world for you and me
God bless the American housewife

Look at how my children play Commando in the cul-de-sac
Look at how my husband has survived another heart attack
Look at all the other mothers, envious of all my things
Had to call the plumber
'Cause my daughter flushed by wedding ring

God bless the American housewife
How she does it all I'll never know
God bless the American housewife
She could use a miracle for sure
God bless the American housewife
Cleaning up the world for you and me
God bless the American housewife

Look at me I'm beautiful and glamorous in rubber gloves
Look how my tiara can be bent back to the shape it was
I can do the laundry and make dinner while I'm on the phone
Look at me I'm sexy as the devil when I mow the lawn

God bless the American housewife
How she does it all I'll never know
God bless the American housewife
She could use a miracle for sure
God bless the American housewife
Cleaning up the world for you and me
God bless the American housewife

God bless the American housewife

Kickin’ In

length: 4:06
You and I we started out
I thought that we were cool
You took the time, you read my mind
There's nothin' you wouldn't do, yeah
I give, you take
I got news we're gonna break

[Chorus:]
Is it kickin' in
Yeah, my nerves are raw
And you're wearin' thin
Is it kickin' in
I know I've said it before
You won't play me again
I'm not a freak show, eat crow
kind of thing
I can suck it up or spit you out
So take your best swing
I'm gonna jump right off of this sinkin' ship
Are you feelin' me yet
Is it kickin' in

One day you might discover that I used to care
I'll be that speck in your rear view mirror
Look back, but just don't stare, yeah
Oh well, too bad.
I'm the best you ever had

[Chorus]

I give you take
I got news we're gonna break
Oh, well too bad
I'm the best you ever had

Is it kickin' in
I'm not gonna break
I'm not gonna bend
Is it kickin' in
It's the same old lies
So this is goodbye

[Chorus]

Healing Side

length: 4:20
You can say you're on the healin' side
You can say you've finally seen the light
But I don't see it yet, so how do I forget

Don't you whisper borrowed words
When you know just how hard it hurts
Baby, break it right
Leave me on the healing side

'Cause it's not just love you're killing
All you've wasted and watered down
I'm not able, I'm not willing
To just lay this in the ground
If I don't have a quiet place to run and hide
Have mercy, leave me on the healing side
Oh, the healing side

I watch the blue folding into black
And if I could I wouldn't give it back
This I can't undo
But I can make it through

'Cause it's not just love you're killing
All you've wasted and watered down
I'm not able, I'm not willing
To just lay this in the ground
If I don't have a quiet place to run and hide
Oh, have mercy, leave me on the healing side

Maybe I needed too much
Maybe not enough
This would have been easy
If it were all about us

'Cause it's not just love you're killing
All you've wasted and watered down
I'm not able, I'm not willing
To just lay this in the ground
If I don't have a quite place to run and hide
Oh, have mercy, leave me on the healing side

You can say you're on the healing side
You can say you've finally seen the light
Oh, but I don't see it yet

What Do I Do Now

length: 4:12
This ain't as hard as I thought it would be
It's harder
It's just the sound of nobody but me
For starters
I didn't know, I didn't know it all
Didn't see the fine print written on the wall

What do I do now
I can do whatever I want to
What do I do now
With the other side of the bed
How do I spend those long Sunday afternoons
Now that the slate is clean
And the closet's all cleared out
What do I do now
Yeah

I got some friends who wanna fix me up
Do I let 'em
Pack up the pictures and throw them away
And forget 'em
Redecorate or take a trip somewhere
Change the color of these walls
Or the color of my hair

What do I do now
I can do whatever I want to
What do I do now
With the other side of the bed
How do I spend those long Sunday afternoons
Now that the slate is clean
And the closet's all cleared out
What do I do now, oh, oh, mm-mm

I'm a little anxious
A little relieved
I'm a little cynical
A little naive
It makes it kinda hard to figure
Makes it kinda hard to figure out

What do I do now
I can do whatever I want to
What do I do now
With the other side of my bed
And how do I spend most long Sunday afternoons
Now that the slate is clean
And the closet's all cleared out (cleared out)
What do I do now, yeah
What do I do now
Yeah, yeah
Oh, oh

In Terms of Love

length: 3:40

Now and then I confess you cross my mind
Now and then I guess I have a little too much time
I've changed my way of thinking
I've tried hard to separate what came too soon
From what came too late

I don't think about me in terms of you
I don't think about you in terms of us
I don't think about us in terms of love
I don't think about then in terms of now
I found a way to start again somehow
I don't think about what we thought it was
Oh, in terms of love
Oh, in terms of love

I'm countin' on heaven to understand
I didn't mean to go and mess up all the plans
Sometimes you know where you should go
Before you know the way
I'll bother with tomorrow
Once I made it through today

I don't think about me in terms of you
I don't think about you in terms of us
I don't think about us in terms of love
I don't think about then in terms of now
I found a way to start again somehow
I don't think about what we thought it was
Oh, in terms of love
Mmmm, hummm, yeah

I don't think about black in terms of grey
Or revelations in the light of day
I don't think about cold in terms of ice
Or second chances happenin' twice

I don't think about me in terms of you
I don't think about you in terms of us
I don't think about us in terms of love
I don't think about then in terms of now
I found a way to start again somehow
I don't think about what we thought it was
Oh, in terms of love

(I don't think about me in terms of you)
(I don't think about you in terms of us)
In terms of love

(I don't think about then in terms of now)
(I found a way to start again somehow)
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah

Burn Down the House

length: 3:59

Today I promise I'll never love you again
I swear I'll care as little as I can
'Cause I've become accustomed to wearin' nothin'
But pink nail polish on my left hand

So many valuable lessons I learned from you
Like forgiveness and breakin' hearts too
Now that you're a goner in your honor
A moment of the silence is the least I can do

Cut the lines
Blow up a few bridges
Trim the fat
Trim the grass
Clean out the fridge
Then sweep up the mess
Put on my Sunday best
And burn down the house
Burn down the house
Toss an EZ strike to this difficult life
And Burrrn, yeah

I never did like your fantasy football friends
I'll never have to watch Caddyshack again
I finally started cookin' and if you're lookin'
I'm walkin' my new dog in front of my new house
Got a new job and the money's come in
Seein me a new man and the world in a new light
Nothing's quite as right as a girl on the mend

Cut the lines
Blow up a few bridges
Trim the fat
Trim the grass
Clean out the fridge
Then sweep up the mess
Put on my Sunday best
And burn down the house
Burn down the house
Toss an EZ strike to this difficult life
And Burn
Yeah, yeah

Oh, whoa, whoa
Tearin' down old walls
Puttin' up new ones
Have a little fun it's a wreckin' ball night
Gotta little itchin' to get down in the kitchen
With my tall drink of water and some dynamite

Cut the lines
Blow up a few bridges
Trim the fat
Trim the grass
Clean out the fridge
Then sweep up the mess
Put on my Sunday best
And burn down the house
Burn down the house
Toss an EZ strike in this difficult life
And burn, burn, burn
Baby, burn

Ah, burn it up, yeah
Don't know burn, burn


Out of My Mind

length: 3:44
I live on caffeine, Camus
Eagles and Airplanes
I decorate my lies with butterflies
That glimmer in the shimmering rain
They say you can't lose 'em all
But I'll sure give it a shot

I want more than enough
Yeah, I want more
I want more than enough
When enough is all I got

The truth is so unkind
But I'm good when I'm out of sight
Best when I'm out of my mind
I don't know what you'll find
But I'm good when I'm out of sight
Best when I'm outta my mind

I'm afraid of fallin' upwards
I'm afraid of my own age
I'm a paragon with an apron on
And I'm beautiful on an empty page

Buried in a dresser drawer
Is a rusted, ravaged heart
And the piercing regrets
Yeah, they pierce me
All the piercing regrets
And false starts

The truth is so unkind
But I'm good when I'm out of sight
Best when I'm out of my mind
I don't know what you'll find
But I'm good when I'm out of sight
Best when I'm out of my mind

I can be as strong as Morphine
I can lay my head down where I kneel
Sometimes I need a broken bone
To remind me how to feel

The truth is so unkind
But I'm good when I'm out of sight
Best when I'm out of my mind
I don't know what you'll find
But I'm good when I'm out of sight
Best when I'm out of my mind
Nah, nah-nah, naah, nah-nah
Nah, nah-nah, naah, nah-nah
Nah, nah-nah, naah, nah-nah
Nah, nah-nah, naah, nah-nah
Nah, nah-nah, naah, nah-nah

She Gets What I Deserve

length: 5:56
She doesn't know me by name
But I know everything about her
She likes to work in her rose garden
And vacation in New Hampshire

She gets him every holiday
And every Sunday afternoon
By eight she tucks his babies in
I know she loves him like I do
And I've wanted to call her so many times
But I never found the nerve
She gets what I deserve
Ooh, yeah

It's not the way that I planned
Just the right man, the wrong time
Even the moments he's holding me
I know he's not really mine
When I peer into the windows
of the home I've torn apart
I can't help but wonder
Whatever happened to my heart
Such an uninvited lesson
I never meant to learn
She gets what I deserve

I can't whitewash my excuses
I can't cover up the stain
I can't give back what I've taken
I should be the one to bare the pain
I just pray that God forgives me
For what I've done to her
She gets what I deserve
