Track Name: Run Wild
well I feel fine sometimes
broken hearted other times
and I get sad sometimes
other times I feel alive

yes I float along sometimes
other times I fly
and I feel scared sometimes
so I hide away and close my eyes

chorus
well I’m looking for something to do
hey darling are you looking to
well I’m looking for something to be
well I guess I’ll just wait and see

we all go to work to live
meanwhile we’re living for other things
and my feet get stuck sometimes
other times my heels run wild

chorus
well I’m looking for something to do
hey darling are you looking to
well I’m looking for something to be
well I guess I’ll just wait and see

I’m so excited to see
how the rest of my life will be
well I’m looking for something to do
hey darling are you looking to
Track Name: Daisy
She gets home from her day job
weary and parched
flops down in the foyer
over to her I march

I inquire on her mood
but she just shakes her head and says
It’s that we don’t have much
with which to break our bread

But I said

Chorus
Darling Daisy, don’t be crazy
Theres gotta be a little bit left
Darling Daisy, don't be crazy
Theres gotta be a little bit left

So pass me the lettuce and I’ll give you the thyme
I’ll put some on some bacon if you pour me some wine
Half a tomato and an olive or five
Toss in a pepper with some dressing and chives

Chorus

Bridge
All of this together makes a glorious feast
I don’t find it to be negative
No, not in the least

So darling Daisy, don’t be crazy
There’s always gonna be a bit left
And darling Daisy, don't be crazy
there’s always gonna be a bit left
Track Name: Dance with the Devil
Everyone in the world has to make decisions
about who they want to be and who they are
there's different sides to every story
tell me my dear which side you're on

I'm on the side of the mistaken
I'm not the side of the slightly confused
with the ones on the path thats not been beaten
tell me my dear where, where will I find you

Chorus
I danced with the devil but the devil he has won
Dancing with the devil but the devil I've become
I danced with the devil but the devil he has won
Dancing with the devil but the devil I've become

Tried to free myself from his clutches but I lost
Attempted escape but I also lead him
Became what I wasn't sure I wanted
and I'm trying to find my way back home

Chorus
I danced with the devil but the devil he has won
Dancing with the devil but the devil I've become
I danced with the devil but the devil he has won
Dancing with the devil but the devil I've become

If you see him coming you should run far far away
if you see him coming you better run
for if he gets you he will turn you into something
that you're not sure you should become

then you'll
dance with the devil but the devil he will win
dance with the devil but the devil you'll become
dance with the devil but the devil he will win
dancing with the devil but the devil you'll become

dance with the devil but the devil he will win
dance with the devil but the devil you'll become
dance with the devil but the devil he will win
dancing with the devil but the devil we'll become
Track Name: Whiskey Bar
we’ll call this one the story of when we first met
we’ll tell it to our brothers and we’ll tell it to our friends
we’ll call this one a story of no regrets
we’ll tell it to our mothers and we’ll tell it til the end

we’ll start with how we met in that old whiskey bar
you were playing open mic with an old guitar
it was raining it was cold I was a little drunk
we stayed up all night talking, young and having fun

you'd tell stories of your travels and I'd talk of my hometown
you'd say you like my blue eyes and I'd say I like yours brown
I'd learn your favourite food and you'd learn my favourite song
I'd realize I'd been falling for your smile all along

We'd meet each others families and we'd know each others friends
you'd say that you want kids, and three would be best
We'd learn those little weird things that you only come to know
when you spend a summer traveling, together on the road

then we’d watch each other age and we’d watch each other grow remember how we met so many years ago
my blonde hair goes grey, there’ll be lines on my face
but you’ll lie to me and say I haven’t aged a day

Chorus
we’ll call this one the story of when we first met
we’ll tell it to our children and we’ll tell it to our friends
we’ll start with how we met in that old whiskey bar
you were playing open mic with an old guitar
Track Name: Skeleton Pines
Skeleton Pines are lining the horizon
Icicles hang down from our roofs
we hide in our homes lighting fires breaking smiles
keeping watch over frozen trees that loom

We fly by our years as they take away our youth
but in wisdom gained I have arranged
a view of the truth

I whisper tunes to free a secret story that we keep
on guard for all from evils reach
even in my sleep

Chorus
I wanna wake up to you
I wanna wake up to you
I wanna wake up to you
I wanna wake up with you

Skeleton Pines are lining the horizon
Track Name: Wash Away
If a line could build an orchestrated melody
If a line could build an orchestrated melody
the words, the words
whats in a word

I've been asking for the meaning
I've been asking many things
time to listen
I'll begin

Chorus
To wash it all
and clear my reckless mind
I'll wash it all
just to hear for the first time

oh the eyes they scatter like a passing tailwind
oh the eyes they scatter like a passing tailwind
give me space, give me space
as we burn through stone

i've been asking for the meaning
I've been asking many things
will you still leave me
out in the cold

Chorus
I'll wash it all
to clear my reckless mind
I'll wash it all
just to hear for the first time
