Track Name: Stars Align
Held your breath
Saw you do it
Saved your soul
Just to bruise it

But there's a tone
That's moving on in spirit
Our time expired
Only when we feared it

Oh, I've been waiting on a sign
Oh
When is it gonna come
Oh
I've been waiting on a sign
Oh
When is it gonna come

When the stars align
Everybody says the stars align
Do the stars really align
Is that true
For me and you

Knotted up
I can't untie it
You lost your trust
Just to find it

In a tone that's moving
on in spirit
Our time expired
only when we feared it

Oh
Ive been waiting on a sign
Oh
When is it gonna come
Oh
Ive been waiting on a sign
Oh
When is it gonna come

When the stars align
Everybody says the stars align
Do the stars really align
Is that true
For me and you

Let the stars align
Go on
Let the stars align
Let the stars align
Let it be true
For me and you
Track Name: My Man
Don't wanna generalize
Insult this life
Turn you into a sunny day
Show me how your lightning strikes
Did it burn your eyes
I wanna see the scars
It left on your face

When I said our fears
Were just made to be discovered
I did not yet know the
Demons love uncovers
Now you're my man
I can't avoid them
Now that you're my man
I've got stars in my eyes again

And I won't tell a soul
Although I'm sure they know
About the sweet love we make
When we're just hanging around
In some strange new town
Waiting for the band to play

Why do you keep apologizing
Why do I keep apologizing too
Why do we keep apologizing
What was it so wrong
Why do you keep apologizing
Why do I keep apologizing too
Why do we keep apologizing
Nothing was so wrong
We hide what we do
Track Name: Hold On You
Honking horns
Spinning wheels
Let me go to sleep when it gets dark
I wanna feel how the dream time feels
Yeah maybe I am checking out
I've got this wide open heart
And there's just too many signs and symbols
Speeding down Santa Monica Boulevard

Traffic is moving
Although I try and stand so still
My heart is like a wheel

But there are friends to see
Lives inside the books I read
I don't need no doctor
To tell me what the hell has happened to me
Cuz this is the moment to be ceased
We're all just waiting to be new
And I don't need no piece of paper
To reach out my hands
And get my hold on you

I really wanna get a hold on you
I really wanna get a hold on you
I really wanna get a hold on you
I really wanna get a hold on, hold on, hold on you
Oh well now
Traffic keeps moving
Try as I might you know I can't stand still
My heart is like a wheel

Try and keep on, try and keep on,
Try and keep on, try and keep on
Try and keep on moving,
Try and keep on moving,
Try and keep on moving

But I really wanna get a hold on you
I really wanna get a hold on you
I really wanna get a hold on you
I really wanna get a hold on, hold on, hold on you
Oh well now

Traffic keeps moving
Try as I might
you know I can't stand still
My heart is like a wheel
Traffic keeps moving
Try as I might
you know I can't stand still
When my heart is like a wheel
Track Name: Puritan
There's a puritan who lives in my head
Who wants to lay roses down on every single word you've said
Who wants to be guided by
Some strange lullaby
She swore she heard you singing

She wants to coat every wall in a white coat of paint
She wants to go down on you
As an offering to the saints
She wants to put her back into
Them things that been breaking you
All in the name of healing

But she knows something's missing

Cowgirls, cowgirls
Go on and get your blues
Cowgirls, cowgirls
Go on and get your
Go on and get your blues

There's a woman in me
That sees the fire
While the rest see smoke
She hears the painful truth
At the root of your dirty jokes
She wants to claim owner to
The man sleeping inside of you
While the boy runs wicked

But she knows something's missing

Cowgirls, cowgirls
Go on and get your blues
Cowgirls, cowgirls
Go on and get your
Go on and get your blues

You know I would have gone over there
To see you on the west side
We'd lay our weapons down
I hope you meet me some time
You know I would have gone over there
To see you on the east side
We'd lay our weapons down
I hope you see me some time

Cowgirls,Cowgirls
Go on and get your blues
Cowgirls, cowgirls
Go on and get your
Go on and get your blues
Track Name: Pulled By The Weather
Words are a tool I've been trying to use
Careful now
I have healed
And I have bruised
I've been slinging my words
Like a slack-jawed fool
Slinging my words
Just to hit you, brother

But I won't hold on
I won't hold on
When you're pulled by the weather

I'll just sing
Fly on
Don't let me keep ya
Fly on
If the winds got something it's got to teach ya
Well you won't know the light
'Till you're burned by the sun
You won't know the dark
'Till you dig underground

I just sing
Fly on
Fly on
When you're pulled by the weather

Well there's a magic here
If you'd only believe
There' s a magic in and outside
Everything that you see
That makes me wonder
Who are you
And who am I
Well I can see me there
When I look deep into your eyes
Well could we hold on
Could we both hold on
When we change with the weather

Or will we just sing
Fly on
Don't let me keep ya
Fly on
If the winds got something it's got to teach ya
Well you won't know the light
'Till you're burned by the sun
You won't know the dark
'Till you dig underground

I just sing
Fly on
Fly on
When you're pulled by the weather

Well there's a letter hanging there
About sixteen years old
It's been bleeding as it hangs
Its been screaming there on my wall
Well I
I took the money
Now I earn my cash
But I can't seem to make
All these pennies stretch

So I roll on and I roll on and I roll on
But my days are numbered
And I roll on and I roll on and I roll on
But my days are numbered
And I roll on and I roll on and I roll on
But my days are numbered

But my days are numbered
But my days are numbered
So I just roll on
You and I
We'll both roll on
When we're pulled by the weather
Track Name: Painter In Your Pocket
And I'm reminded of the time that I was blinded by the sun.
It was a welcome change from the sight of you hanging
Like a willow off the arm of yet another visionary
Prophetess east van punk

I didn't stand a chance
I couldn't stand at all
You looked ok with the others
You looked great on your own
It was 2002 and you couldn't be bothered to say, 'hello' or 'goodbye'
Or stand the 'test of time' - you did, I just tried to separate an ocean from these tears we cried....woo

Where did you get that line?
Where did you get that look?
Where did you get that penchant for destruction in the way you talk?
Where did you get that ride?
Where did you get that rocket?
Where did you get that painter in your pocket?

Hey, there's Christine
And there's where she could've been
The summer season was cheap
Birds of prey stick together and, hey, so do we...go

I didn't stand a chance
I didn't stand at all
You looked ok with the others
You looked great by yourself
It was 2002 and you needed reminding to stay alive
And so did I, but at least I tried to fall upon that sword and never look back

Where did you get that line?
Where did you get that look?
Where did you get that penchant for destruction in the way you talk?
Where did you get that ride?
Where did you get that rocket?
Where did you get that painter in your pocket?

I didn't stand a chance
I didn't stand at all
You looked ok with the others
