Track Name: Moonlight
Oh-oh Oh-oh
I was born to walk alone
The moonlight takes care of me
I tried to love you, but it wasn’t enough
So moonlight takes care of me

I want to remember
The way life used to be
Oh remember
Walking down San Francisco streets
We were lost in China Town
Then driving around—San Reyes Bound

The moonlight takes care of me X2

I want you to remember
all the Aspen trees
Hanging Lake
Coffee shops and feeling free
The kiss, Gondola ride
I was lost in your eyes

The moonlight takes care of me

I was born to walk alone
So the moonlight takes care of me
I spend lonely nights without you
Could this be a dream?
Moonlight takes care of me.
Track Name: Your honor
Your honor
Your honor I just didn’t think
About the women I hurt when I ran away
About the hearts I broke because I couldn’t stay
There’s no contest these days

14 hours gone and she comes for me
Like a ghost to my room but I don’t sing
I close my eyes and I make believe
That when I open them up she’ll be all I see
“but here we go again. Here we go again.”

Your honor I just didn’t know
I would feel so alone
The house I have could never be a home
There’s no contest these days

I’m too old to fight and too young to die
To stupid to stick to my lies
When the nights are cold for this whiskey soul
And the shaking won’t stop can I make call
“Will you bail me out again….Will you bail me out again.”

Your honor I just didn’t believe
Some ships were never meant for sea
Some stars would burn out before they’re seen
There’s no contest these days
Track Name: Valentine's past
It’s been eight lost years
And countless tears
Since you walked out of my life
The voices I heard said
“Let her go”
But it never felt right

Then loneliness comes for me
When loneliness comes for me
There’s bars in this town, women around
That can keep me warm at night
But it’s not the same
I lost you
It’s not the same and there’s nothing I can do
I lost you

Well the ghost of Valentine’s past keeps haunting me
She sends shivers right through my spine
She looks so good but she’s not the truth
And she fucks with my mind

Whiskey or women are all I’ll ever know
When one ends the next begins
So I’ll never truly be alone
For me it’s whiskey or women
Track Name: Chains of Slumber-1,000 leaves
1000 leaves
Slow down once again
These nightmares keep killing me
If I fall in love with a dream
Could I ever truly be free?

I scream at the stars when I sleep
And I shake like a thousand leaves
And I don’t want to go there again.

I know we’re just simple animals
But even animals have to eat
And animals have to sleep
And I don’t want to go there again.
So I say “slow down once again
Because these nightmares keep killing me”

I know she is dreaming to find a new way out
But she flickers like flames in the breeze
And she bruises like burns in the sheets

And I don’t want to go there again
Slow down once again
These nightmares keep killing me
If I fall in love with a dream
Could I ever truly be free?
In the chains of slumber locked in wonder?
In a cell of blankets meant to erase us?
Could I ever truly be free?
Track Name: Perseus
I’m building a rocket ship
I’m leaving soon
Would you like to fly away with me
And come see the moon
We can dance in the stars
We can sleep for days
I’m building a rocket ship
Would you like to fly away with me?

You said you had the time
And never fit in with the world.
You could even bring your dog
I have a helmet perfect for the girl

I’m looking for a copilot
The prerequisite is you
To be more earnest than Hemingway
Well it’s something only you could do

Help me fly away to the countless points of light
Help me fly away to the stars in your eyes.

The only way for us to make it to the heavens is to break in.
--I kinda like you—
