Track Name: Hear That Lonesome Echo Sound
keep the mistakes that you make
stop me if i go too fast
pass me by if i'm going too slow

the devil made a fool outta you
build a brand new home in hell
i heard you're living pretty well

access and absence aint the same (no, no)
i'm the only player here
i'm the only one who knows the rules to the game

i'm gonna shout my name from the tallest mountain i can find
but when i hear that lonesome echo sound
i pack my things and i'm going down
when i hear that lonesome echo sound
i pack my bag and i'm going down

hear that lonesome echo sound
Track Name: I Want My Baby Back
his gate ever opened
like he's waiting on an absent friend
his gaze fixed on nothing at all
and all he can think of is "when will she come again"

i want my baby back

question all of his certainty
you can never be so sure
trying hard to repeat yourself
and then you wind up face down on the floor

i want my baby back

pull yourself up
from the straps on your beat up boots
there's no reason for you to stay
you should trade in those stompers for off-white tennis shoes

i want my baby back
Track Name: Flying Out to Denver to Burn His House to the Ground
out of tune piano in a crowded cafe
he doesnt know the words to the song that he plays
but he tells me all about the prison forty miles high
they clip your wings up there so you can never fly

he said "excuse me for being crass
but i'm having a good time i want it to last
so i'm flying out to denver to burn his house to the ground
and i hope that when i do it he's not around"

i'm flying out to denver to burn his house to the ground
and i hope that when i do it he's not around

it's miles to town and it's Miles from home
it's miles from a working telephone
i'll call you in a week or two if you still need help
but you know you oughta start taking better care of yourself

i'll call you in a week or two if you still need help
but you know you oughta start taking better care of yourself

"i lived in hollywood for eighteen years
and my voice was drowned out by a chorus of cheers
but now that i'm alone no one knows my name
they scuff their feet on my star, hang my head in shame"

now that i'm alone no one knows my name
they scuff their feet on my star hang my head in shame
Track Name: Have U Ever Seen the Rain
someone told me long ago
there's a calm before the storm
i know
it's been coming for some time

when it's over so they say
it'll rain a sunny day
i know
shining down like water

i wanna know have you ever seen the rain?
i wanna know have you ever seen the rain?
coming down on a sunny day

yesterday and days before
sun is cold and rain is hard
i know
been that way for all my time

til forever on it goes
through the circle fast and slow
i know
it can't stop i wonder

i wanna know have you ever seen the rain?
i wanna know have you ever seen the rain?
coming down on a sunny day
