Track Name: Secret Love
i've known a secret love
i know you too well
i've known a secret love
and might as well tell it now
i can tell you've got a secret, love
i know you too well
i know you got a secret, love
you might as well tell it now
Track Name: Don't Break My Heart
rain falls on the tin roof like
i follow you everywhere you go
lightning strikes the metal and
you'll fall to your death
just don't break my heart with your neck
Track Name: Devil Tree
will you take me to the dark tree,
bathe me, wash my hair in its roots?
will you lose me at the train tracks,
tie me up, don't leave any slack?
come with me to cut down the devil tree,
i've gotten to a place where it scares me.
join me in a glass of Jim Beam.
come on, babe, i know that you love the drink.
Track Name: I'll Rest Here
I will rest here for eternity.
I will lay my head down under the old oak tree.
I have trouble listening to what he says to me.
"You gotta stop your traveling. What will be will be."
Another little town with a university.
Another stacked up phone bill, even friends aren't free.
It won't take long to settle in and even less to leave.
Don't know what I'm running from, I guess running's just in me.
Track Name: Quite A Feat
i listen for your tone,
the only way to gauge how much i'm actually hitting home.
and then i open up my eyes,
the only way to see through that ridiculous disguise that you're wearing all the time.
i have one just like it in my closet,
i haven't worn it since high school.
i drove you home.
the awkward pauses make me feel less alone and that is quite a feat.
this past year's been hard for me.
i open up my eyes,
the only way to see through that ridiculous disguise that you're wearing all the time.
i have one just like it in my closet,
i haven't worn it since high school.
