+ Damn Right

(v1)
DAMN RIGHT I LOVED YOU
OH, I HAVE FROM THE START
FROM THE MOMENT I SAW YOU FROM ACROSS THE SMOKY BAR
YOU WERE KEEPING THE BEAT OH SO STEADY AND SO TRUE
AND I PRAYED FOR THE MOMENT THAT I COULD BELONG TO YOU
AND WHEN THAT DAY CAME, YOU WERE DAMAGED - SO WAS I
YOU HAD YOUR SUSPICIOUS, BUT I SWORE I DIDN’T LIE
WE TRIED TO PUSH THROUGH IT
BUT I PUSHED YOU ‘TIL YOU BROKE
I CRUMBLED IN THE DRIVE
KEPT MY TEARS BACK ‘TIL I CHOKED

(v2)
DAMN RIGHT I’M ANGRY - I GAVE YOU WHAT I COULD
YOU NEVER ASKED FOR MORE
AND WHAT I OFFERED WASN’T GOOD ENOUGH TO THRILL YOU
OR TO MAKE YOU STICK AROUND
SO I’M HIDING OUT IN EVERY CORNER OF THIS TOWN - SO
NO ONE WILL SEE THE CUTS I’VE MADE ON MY OWN HANDS
FROM PUNCHING OUT THE WALLS
I COULDN’T MAKE YOU UNDERSTAND
QUITE WHO I WAS OR EVEN WHAT I WAS ABOUT
I CAME SURE TO LOVE YOU, BUT YOU - YOU WERE IN DOUBT

(bridge)
I COULD LOVE YOU BETTER
I JUST CAN’T READ YOUR MIND
SEVENTH YEAR COULD BE THE WINNER
GIVE IT ONE MORE TRY
ONE MORE TIME
ONE LAST NIGHT

(v3)
DAMN RIGHT I’LL BE JEALOUS
CAUSE SHE’LL HAVE YOU TO HERSELF
YOU ALREADY LOVE HER THOUGH YOU HAVEN’T MET HER YET
BUT YOU’RE SURE THAT SHE’S OUT THERE
AND YOU’RE GONNA FIND HER SOON
SHE’LL BE BETTER FOR YA THAN I COULD EVER BE TO YOU
BUT, OH, YOU NEVER ASKED IF I’D QUIT THE ROAD TO MAKE A HOME
OR TO HAVE YOUR LITTLE BABIES, JUST ASSUMED THAT I’D SAY “NO”
I WON’T SEND YOU AN INVITATION FOR THE SHOWER IN THE FALL
AND IF HE GROWS UP JUST LIKE YOU, HONEY, I’LL KNOW WHO TO CALL

+ Creatures

(if starting w/ vox...)
OH, ISN’T IT STRANGE
ISN’T IT STRANGE HOW THE NIGHT’LL CHANGE YA

(v1)
WHO IS THIS CREATURE WITH FANGS SHOWIN’
HE’S THE ONE I WAS THE WORSE FOR KNOWIN’
HE SUCKED ME DRY OF ALL THE BLOOD I COULD PROVIDE
BUT I RECALL HOW GENTLE HE LOOKED IN THE LIGHT

(ch)
OH, ISN’T IT STRANGE
ISN’T IT STRANGE HOW THE NIGHT’LL CHANGE YA
OH, ISN’T IT STRANGE
ISN’T IT STRANGE HOW THE NIGHT’LL CHANGE YA

(v2) AND WHO AM I TO BE PLAYING WITH THIS FIRE I AM STRONG, SURELY I CAN OVERCOME THIS DESIRE SEE, I HAVE KNOWN BETTER EVEN FROM THE START OH, BUT HE’S SO APPEALING IN THE DARK

(ch)
OH, ISN’T IT STRANGE
ISN’T IT STRANGE HOW THE NIGHT’LL CHANGE YA
OH, ISN’T IT STRANGE
ISN’T IT STRANGE HOW THE NIGHT’LL CHANGE YA

(bridge)
IT SEEMS WE HAVE BEEN EXCUSED FROM ALL OUR POOR DECISIONS
BY THE FULLNESS OF THE MOON
OR A PLANET CHANGING DIRECTION - BUT
I AM NOT AMUSED - NO

(ch)
OH, ISN’T IT STRANGE
ISN’T IT STRANGE HOW THE NIGHT’LL CHANGE YA
OH, ISN’T IT STRANGE
ISN’T IT STRANGE HOW THE NIGHT’LL CHANGE YA
OH, ISN’T IT STRANGE
ISN’T IT STRANGE HOW THE NIGHT’LL CHANGE YA
OH, ISN’T IT STRANGE
ISN’T IT STRANGE HOW THE NIGHT’LL CHANGE YA

+ Depressive State

(ch)
In a depressive state
How long will I feel this way
Is it forever, in my mind prisoner
Will I be okay, will I ever be okay
And not someone that everyone hates
Will I ever be okay

(v1)
I’m locking all the doors to my house
Lights off - no need to ever come around
You can take my number off your fridge
You’ll never need it, never need it
Not even to be saved for a rainy day
If I were you I’d forget I ever knew my name
Now you wanna call and say you’re sorry
But you’re not sure what for
Save your apologies cause I can’t take yours anymore

(ch)
In a depressive state
How long will I feel this way
Is it forever, in my mind prisoner
Will I be okay, will I ever be okay
And not someone that everyone hates
Will I ever be okay

(musical break)

(bridge)
Who knows - chicken or egg
I could’ve sworn I was happy before you left
I guess I could have been a bummer the whole time

(ch)
In a depressive state
How long will I feel this way
Is it forever, in my mind prisoner
Will I be okay, will I ever be okay
And not someone that everyone hates
Will I ever be okay

(outro)
Will I ever be oh - oh - oh - oh

+ Catch it Now

(v1)
MANY A DAY I SPENT HIDING UNDERNEATH MY SHEETS
PRAYING THE LIGHT COULD FIND ME STILL
JUST A GLIMPSE OF THE WORLD THAT WAS OUTSIDE MY BED
OH, IT SEEMED TO WORK SO WELL
BUT ME, I NEVER FIT AND I DIDN’T TRY - NO I JUST QUIT
AND I TAUGHT MYSELF TO FAKE A SMILE
BUT, OH, TRUE JOY IT CAME WHEN I LOOKED OUT MY WINDOW
PANE AND SAW - IT AIN’T BEEN RAININ’ FOR A WHILE

(ch)
SO, I AIN’T WAITIN’ FOR IT
GONNA GO CATCH IT NOW - I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR SO LONG
FOR SOMEONE TO SHOW ME HOW
I’M GONNA GO CATCH IT NOW

(v2)
MANY A YEAR I SPENT TURNING MY BACK ON WHAT I KNOW, IN MY HEART, TO BE RIGHT
MAYBE IT WAS LUST, MAYBE IT WAS FEAR
MAYBE IT WAS SOMETHING WORSE, MY DEAR
MAYBE I WAS JUST TOO TIRED TO FIGHT
THOUGH IT MIGHT SEEM FRIGHTENING
IF I FALL IN LOVE I WON’T TREAD LIGHTLY, NO, NOT ANYMORE
I’M GONNA JUMP RIGHT IN
AND I MAY NOT LIVE A RIGHTEOUS WAY, BUT I’LL TRY TO
NEVER HIDE MY SOUL AWAY FROM
ANYONE EVER AGAIN

(ch)
SO, I AIN’T WAITIN’ FOR IT
GONNA GO CATCH IT NOW - I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR SO LONG
FOR SOMEONE TO SHOW ME HOW
I’M GONNA GO CATCH IT NOW

(bridge)
ALL I SAW WAS ALL OF ME -
SCATTERED ‘ROUND IN PILES OF ASHES ON MY OLD STREETS
I SAW WHO I WAS - WHERE I’VE BEEN - WHO I AM
AND WHO I’M WANTING TO BE

(ch3)
SO, I AIN’T WAITIN’ FOR IT
GONNA GO CATCH IT NOW - I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR SO LONG
FOR SOMEONE TO SHOW ME HOW
I’M GONNA GO CATCH IT NOW

+ Red Rescue (feat. Jimmy LaFave)

(v1)
THERE WAS A DARKNESS IN THAT HOUSE
I FELT IT CHILL MY BONES
SAW YOUR MOTHER AT THE KITCHEN TABLE
JUST SITTIN’ THERE - ARMS CROSSED
I DID A LINE, I DID A LINE TO MAKE IT THROUGH THE NIGHT
I DID A LINE, I DID A LINE TO SUPPRESS MY APPETITE

(v2)
SHE OFFERED US WHAT SHE HAD TO EAT
GUESS SHE’D BEEN HOLDING ONTO ALL OF THOSE HOLIDAY MEATS
I SMELLED THE MILK A-SPOILING FROM THE ‘FRIDGERATOR
PULLED A LONG, BLACK HAIR OFF MY PLATE
SAID “BABY, LET’S GET OUT OF HERE”

(ch)
I’M-A-GONNA SAVE YOU
I’M-A-GONNA SAVE YOU
RED RESCUE - RED RESCUE
I’M-A-GONNA SAVE YOU
I’M-A-GONNA SAVE YOU
RED RESCUE - RED RESCUE

(v3)
THE WALLS WERE COLORED ALL LIKE BLOOD
I NEVER LOOKED, BUT I SWEAR THERE MUST’VE BEEN A DUNGEON
I SAW YOUR BROTHER THERE - SLEEPING ON THE COUCH
DON’T THINK HE’S MOVED SINCE
DON’T THINK HE’LL EVER GET OUT

(ch)
I’M-A-GONNA SAVE YOU
I’M-A-GONNA SAVE YOU
RED RESCUE - RED RESCUE
I’M-A-GONNA SAVE YOU
I’M-A-GONNA SAVE YOU
RED RESCUE - RED RESCUE
I’M-A-GONNA SAVE YOU
I’M-A-GONNA SAVE YOU
RED RESCUE - RED RESCUE
I’M-A-GONNA SAVE YOU
I’M-A-GONNA SAVE -

(bridge)
YOU
OOO
OOO
OOO

(v4)
THERE IS A DARKNESS IN OUR HOUSE
I FELT IT CHILL MY BONES
THE SECOND THAT I CARRIED YOU - WEDDING DRESS OVER THE THRESHOLD
YOU TOLD A LIE, YOU TOLD A LIE THAT WAS EASY FOR ME TO BELIEVE
ALL THAT YOU SAID WAS “IT’S NOT AS BAD AS IT SEEMS...”
BUT IT WAS, BABY

(ch3)
HOW’M I GONNA SAVE YOU
HOW’M I GONNA SAVE YOU
RED RESCUE - RED RESCUE
HOW’M I GONNA SAVE YOU
HOW’M I GONNA SAVE YOU
WHEN THAT DARKNESS LIVES IN YOU, TOO
HOW’M I GONNA SAVE YOU
HOW’M I GONNA SAVE YOU
RED RESCUE - RED RESCUE
HOW’M I GONNA SAVE YOU
HOW’M I GONNA SAVE YOU

(outro)
OOO
OOO
OOO
OOO

+ Fake

(v1)
I’M A FAKE
YOU’RE STARTING TO NOTICE
DON’T DO WHAT I SAY
I CAN’T KEEP A PROMISE
YOU KNOW - YOU KNOW

(v2)
I’M A LIAR
YOU FIGURED IT OUT
I STARTED A FIRE
I COULDN’T DROWN
SO, I’LL GO - I’LL GO

(ch)
I WOULDA LOVED YOU HONEY
IF YOU WOULD HAVE BELIEVED IN ME
I WOULD CHANGE FOR SOMETHING GOOD
I THINK I COULD

(v3)
I WAS LONELY - HE SEEMED TO CARE
WASN’T READY, BUT HE WAS ALREADY THERE
SO IT GOES, SO IT GOES
I’M IMPATIENT
YOU’RE STARTING TO SEE
GIVE UP EASY, YOU’RE STARTING TO HATE ME
I KNOW, I KNOW

(ch)
I WOULDA LOVED YOU HONEY
IF YOU WOULD HAVE BELIEVED IN ME
I WOULD CHANGE FOR SOMETHING GOOD
I THINK I COULD
I THINK I COULD

(END)
I THINK I COULD
I THINK I COULD
I THINK I COULD (I WOULDA LOVED YOU, HONEY)
I THINK I COULD (I WOULDA LOVED YOU, HONEY)
I THINK I COULD (I WOULDA LOVED YOU, HONEY)
I THINK I COULD (I WOULDA LOVED YOU, HONEY)
I THINK I COULD

+ Hurts as Good as it Feels

(v1)
YOU DON’T CARE THAT I SMOKE TOO MUCH
AND I DON’T CARE THAT YOU’RE NOT ENOUGH
YOU DON’T CARE THAT I’M NOT WHAT YOU WANT
AND I DON’T CARE THAT YOU’RE NOT IN LOVE

(ch)
BUT YOU KEEP COMING OVER
AND I KEEP GOING UNDER
WITH THE MOON HALF FULL AND THE SUN ON ITS HEELS
AND I CAN’T SAY NO - LEAVE YOU OUT IN THE COLD
WITH OUR HEARTS HALF IN IT, WE’RE LOVIN’ TO KILL
IT ONLY HURTS AS GOOD AS IT FEELS

(v2)
I DON’T CARE THAT YOU DISAPPEAR
YOU DON’T CARE THAT I HATE IT HERE
I DON’T CARE, BUT I DO FEAR
THAT YOU DON’T CARE FOR ME, MY DEAR

(ch)
BUT YOU KEEP COMING OVER
AND I KEEP GOING UNDER
WITH THE MOON HALF FULL AND THE SUN ON ITS HEELS
AND I CAN’T SAY NO - LEAVE YOU OUT IN THE COLD
WITH OUR HEARTS HALF IN IT, WE’RE LOVIN’ TO KILL
IT ONLY HURTS AS GOOD AS IT FEELS

(bridge)
I CAN’T QUIT YOU - THOUGH I’D LIKE TO
ONLY YOU KNOW MY KIND OF LONELY
I SHOULD RUN FAR, HOP IN AN OLD CAR
GO AND FIND SOMEONE WHO WANTS ME

(ch)
BUT YOU KEEP COMING OVER
AND I KEEP GOING UNDER
WITH THE MOON HALF FULL AND THE SUN ON ITS HEELS
AND I CAN’T SAY NO - LEAVE YOU OUT IN THE COLD
WITH OUR HEARTS HALF IN IT, WE’RE LOVIN’ TO KILL
IT ONLY HURTS AS GOOD AS IT FEELS

+ Forever

LIKE THE OKLAHOMA ROSES FLOWER
EVER BLOOMING LIKE MY LOVE AT THIS HOUR
HOW MUCH MORE WITHOUT YOU?
I BEGIN TO WONDER
MAYBE FOREVER...

EVEN THOUGH IT’S BEEN A WARMER WINTER
STILL THE PETALS CHANGE THEIR DARKER COLOR
HOW MUCH LONGER LOVER
WILL I BE WAITING FOR YA?
MAYBE FOREVER
MAYBE FOREVER

BLUEBONNET PETALS FALLING
SOMEWHERE FADE THE CALLING
HOW MUCH LONGER DARLING?

MAYBE FOREVER...

+ Snow White Knuckles

(v1)
WELL, I NEVER THOUGHT I’D FIND GOD HERE
FULL OF NICOTINE AND CAFFEINE SHAKING WITH FEAR
JUST PRAYING FOR ANOTHER DAY TO STAY IN THE CLEAR
WELL, I NEVER THOUGHT I’D FIND GOD HERE

(v2)
WELL, I NEVER THOUGHT I’D DRAW A SOBER BREATH
I ALWAYS THOUGHT I’D BE A WRECK
ALWAYS FIGURED I’D HAVE NOTHIN’ LEFT
WELL, I NEVER THOUGHT I’D DRAW A SOBER BREATH

(ch1)
BUT I GAVE UP THE COCAINE - GAVE UP THE GIN
FREED MYSELF OF THE HELL I’S IN
AND ASKED THE LORD TO KEEP ME CLEAN AGAIN
AND THE SPIRIT CAME AND PICKED ME UP
KISSED ME ON THE CHEEK AND WISHED ME LUCK
TOLD ME I COULD CALL HIM A GOOD FRIEND
MY GOOD FRIEND

(v3)
WELL, I NEVER THOUGHT THAT I’D MOVE ON
OH, BUT I’M GETTING USED TO SLEEPIN’ ALONE
JUST ONE FLASHLIGHT AND THE BOOK OF JOHN
WELL, I NEVER THOUGHT THAT I’D MOVE ON

(ch2)
BUT I GAVE UP THE HEARTBREAK - GAVE UP THE MAN
FREED MYSELF OF THE HELL I’S IN
AND ASKED THE LORD TO LET ME LOVE AGAIN
AND THE SPIRIT CAME AND PICKED ME UP
KISSED ME ON THE CHEEK AND WISHED ME LUCK
TOLD ME I COULD CALL HIM A GOOD FRIEND
MY GOOD FRIEND

(v4)
WELL, I NEVER THOUGHT I COULD BE FREE
AFTER ALL THOSE NIGHTS IN THE D.O.C.
I’M THANKFUL GOD’S FORGIVEN ME
‘CAUSE I NEVER THOUGHT I COULD BE FREE

(ch3)
BUT I GAVE UP THE COCAINE - GAVE UP THE GIN
FREED MYSELF OF THE HELL I’S IN
AND ASKED THE LORD TO KEEP ME CLEAN AGAIN
AND THE SPIRIT CAME AND PICKED ME UP
KISSED ME ON THE CHEEK AND WISHED ME LUCK
TOLD ME I COULD CALL HIM A GOOD FRIEND
MY GOOD FRIEND

+ Where Are You Now

(v1)
YOU WERE HERE, BUT YOU DIDN’T SEEM THE SAME
REACHED FOR YOUR HAND
IT’S LIKE YOU DIDN’T KNOW MY NAME
I GUESS WE DID ALL THAT WE COULD DO
LAID DOWN THE ROSES
SHOOK THE DIRT OFF OF OUR SHOES

(ch)
WHERE ARE YOU NOW
WHERE ARE YOU NOW
WHERE ARE YOU NOW
WHERE ARE YOU NOW

(v2)
WE DRIED OUR EYES
PACKED UP THE THINGS THAT WERE ALL YOURS
SAID OUR GOODBYES
TURNED OUT THE LIGHTS, AND LOCKED THE DOORS
I TURNED AROUND
I HEARD THE SOUND OF YOU WALKING BEHIND
NO ONE WAS THERE - IT WAS ONLY IN MY MIND

(ch)
WHERE ARE YOU NOW
WHERE ARE YOU NOW
WHERE ARE YOU NOW
WHERE ARE YOU NOW
