Track Name: Down To The Bone
You took me by surprise
You know my friends are wearing disguises on their faces
They’re hiding from the lies they made
I suppose they’re ashamed
Running from themselves

Do you feel the pull from the drag behind
Turn your back, close your eyes
Do you try
Down to the bone

Your conniving with your way
You know you want everything from anyone
You’re hiding from the lies you’ve made
I suppose you’re ashamed
Running from yourself

Do you feel the pull from the drag behind
Turn your back, close your eyes
Do you try
Down to the bone

So what do you get from what you’ve got
You’ve got all this mess, all that cost
It’s left you damaged, you’re so damaged

Down to the bone
Track Name: Coat For The Winter
Put your coat on for the winter
It won’t be long until I’m home
It feels like forever since I’ve seen you
But I’m always sentimental when I’m stoned

There’s something about the weather that makes you feel lonely
It’s only time that says you’re old
If you were here baby you’d be happy
But there’s comfort in the faces you know

Places are somewhere you go

These are the thoughts I’ll be chasing
When I’m rolling down the road
I’ve figured out you don’t need nothing
Nothing at all

Now I realise baby there’s something that I’m chasing
Something that I may never know
All these thoughts that need replacing
They are the thoughts that will never go

Places are somewhere you go

These are the thoughts I’ll be chasing
When I’m rolling down the road
I’ve figured out you don’t need nothing
You need nothing at all
Track Name: Weigh Me Down
Weigh me down my darling
Weigh me down
Weigh me down my darling
Way way down
Don’t let me drown
All the way down
All the way
Down, down, down

I got a love in the country
My burning pot of gold
When my body breaks
I know a place where I can go, slow

Seen my fair share of danger
Felt it between my toes
I feel the flow that the ancients know
They are there
Behind my shoulders

You can weigh me down my darling
Weigh me down
Weigh me down my darling
Way way down
Don’t let me drown
All the way down
All the way
Down, down, down

This ain’t for love or for money
It’s beyond my control
Even though I’m broke
There’s nothing that will choke me
I’m going down the river

You can weigh me down my darling
Weigh me down
Weigh me down my darling
Way way down
Don’t let me drown
All the way down
All the way
Down, down, down

Drink it down my darling
Drink it down
Drink it down my darling
Way way down
I won’t let you drown
All the way down
All the way
All the way
All the way
Down down down
Track Name: Alright
It’s alright, it’s alright
You’ve got to let go
It’s alright

All the doubts in your mind
Burry you sometimes
And your tendency
Is to break free

Before the fear grabs hold
And you’ve lost control
You may not find your dreams
But you have found freedom

It’s alright, it’s alright
You’ve got to let go
It’s alright
Track Name: Set Me Free
I’m writing this on the hope it gets
In the post, on the wind to your ears
I’m moving on, it’s been to long
Since I’ve heard what you want from your lips

I’m not hear to disturb or confuse your life
But have you heard
The butterfly flutters by and sends your love through the breeze

It stirs up the memories
The secrets between you and me
What you have and what you need
Where you are, I believe
That you will come back for me
Set me free

I’ve walked the streets, heard the beggars plead
I’ve met a priest and a king, they said
There’s a voice up above
Whispering words of love

Well love, will you tell me when you’ve had enough
Healed yourself, run a muck and you want more
Baby tell me when your cup is half full or half drunk
And you want a top up

It’ll stir up the memories
The secrets between you and me
What you have and what you need
Where you are, I believe
That you, you’ll come back for me

Set me free
Spread my wings

But life is full of lies
You know what, you were right
I believe in what you said
Don’t live with regrets
So I make the most of what I have
I can tell you that

It’ll stir up the memories
The secrets between you and me
What you have and what you need
Where you are, I believe
That you, you’ll come back for me
Track Name: Try To Be
I’m waiting on tomorrow
Waiting on you to let go
You’re somewhere in the shadows
Looking out
Your ears to the ground

No one likes to say goodbye baby
It’s not a lack of love just connection
We tried to find a way so we didn’t have to say
Goodbye

I’m waiting on some time to be swallowed
I’m waiting on you to call
I’ll give you back everything that I borrowed
By your heart
You never gave that at all

No one likes to say goodbye baby
It’s not a lack of love just connection
We tried to find a way so we didn’t have to say
Goodbye

You came around
Saw the light
Not before it was too late

Don’t try to be someone for me
Track Name: In The Middle
I think about you in the future
I think about you and what we’ve been
I seem to know you now better
But all my friends think that I should be

Giving you up
Moving on
But I’m holding out
I’m in the middle of giving you up baby

That ship we sail can’t seem to find a safe harbour
The wind keeps blowing us back out to sea
I’m sure we’ll soon find calm waters
But all my friends think that I should be

Giving you up
Moving on
But I’m holding out
I’m in the middle of giving you up baby

In the middle
Track Name: So Long
Put it in a bottle and set it free
Put it in a pile of memories
Hold on for broke, let go and choke
Hoping and waiting

Sink another bottle and be what be
Pick another lover and get a piece
Look in the face of loneliness
Say goodbye

You made another vow, heart on the sleeve
Never let go to be easy
Sit on this throne with words of wisdom
Wasted time

So long
Say goodbye

We’ll hit the trade winds with open sails
Listen to the beat of the folk tale
It’s a dollar for a song, hold on
Say goodbye

So long
Say goodbye
Track Name: By Your Way
Off into the night with the city lights behind you
The taste on your tongue, it reminds you
Of what you’ve always wanted
You can feel it coming by your way

You’ll take a punt on anybody willing
You’re on the hunt, out to make a killing
You don’t have the patience or the makings
To pave your way

The question is
What have you got to give
What will you find when your waiting

Waiting for the best to come
By your way

You can have it all and the cherry on top
Not for the glory, it’s for the taste on your tongue
Once you’ve tasted it you’ll be chasing it
All the way

The question is
What have you got to give
What will you find when your waiting

Waiting for the best to come
By your way

You told me once that it’s all for the best
Maybe at the time I wasn’t listening
Well now I’m questioning every step I’m taking
And I’m on my way

The question is
What have you got to give
What will you find when your waiting

Waiting for the best to come
By your way
