Track Name: The Law
Well, he lived within the law
Never hurting anyone
But the presence of the day
Was eating him away

Love you like a blade loves bone
Love you like blood loves stone
Love you like life loves pain
Love you like a flood loves the rain

Well, I live with the law
Never hurting anyone
But the presence of the day
Is eating me away

Love you like tires love dogs
Love you like nightmares love stars
Love you like a wound loves time
Love you like a moment loves to die

Well, I live with the law
Never hurting anyone
But the presence of the day
Is eating me away

Love you like a baby loves to wake
Love you like a spirit loves to break
Love you like a leaf loves frost
Love you like a memory loves loss

Well, I live with the law
Never hurting anyone
But the presence of the day
Is eating me away

Away...
Track Name: Glass Lips
I snuck a kiss while you were in the bathroom
I know it was wrong to be so cavalier
But I didn't know how long you'd be gone
So I pressed my lips to your bottle of beer

Held them there so strong yet so tender
To the jukebox I slowly swayed
And my heart felt like a child before Christmas
Finding his presents all stashed away

Glass lips with a small smear of lipstick
Paper label with a hint of perfume
A blonde hair stuck to the bottom
And cold beer to go with these blues

You joked that I'd soon get sick of you
But I said in my head that'd never be true
Cause I keep finding ways to be near
Cause that's what my heart leads me to do

Glass lips with a small smear of lipstick
Paper label with a hint of perfume
A blonde hair stuck to the bottom
And cold beer to go with these blues

If I take a chance and I'm wrong
I may never see you again
So I'll hide the words in a song
And hope that you will understand

So I'll take glass lips now because I have to
I'm too scared to take a chance I may lose
But I don't know how much longer I can settle
If I keep on sitting here sipping this booze

Glass lips with a small smear of lipstick
Paper label with a hint of perfume
A blonde hair stuck to the bottom
And cold beer to go with these blues
To go with these blues
Track Name: Comfortable Bed
I wanna be your bed
I wanna be your bed
Wanna be your comfortable bed
And you can dream all night on me

I'm gonna get a car
Gonna get a car
Gonna get a sturdy, old car
And you can ride all night with me

You don't need to dream of me
Cause I'm right here
Just open up your window, baby
Let it all just disappear

Water into wine
Water into wine
Water into sweet, sleepy wine
Is all just a state of mind

Running out of time
Runnin' out of time
Runnin' out of thin, winding time
I'm just happy to have a ride

And you don't need to dream of me
Cause I'm right here
Just open up your window, babe
Let it all just disappear
And we're free to dream anew
Cause now it's me and you
So let's get lost
And see how many roads we can come across

The sun is in my eyes
Sun is in my eyes
Sun is in my bottled, blue eyes
But I think I know the way

And sitting to me side
Sittin' to my side
Sittin' with her feet held high
Is a girl who maps the miles

And on the story goes
On the story goes
On the story widens and winds
Until we stay behind

And you can be my bed
You can be my bed
You can be my comfortable bed
And you can hold my soul while I sleep

I wanna be your bed
Wanna be your bed
Wanna be your comfortable bed
And you can dream all night on me

Yeah, you can dream all night on me

You can dream all night on me
Track Name: Thankful
Well, it's easy to be thankful when someone always has it worse
We might not often say it, cause such truths often hurt
And it's strange to take a day to reflect on what is true
When I know for what I'm thankful, and what I'm thankful for is you

And it's never lost on this guy all for me that you do
Cause when I look at any doorway I always hope that you'll walk through
And it's strange to take a day to reflect on what is true
When I know for what I'm thankful, and what I'm thankful for is you

Well, I might not eat the meat, I might be late for showing up
That don't mean I don't want to be there, I'm just lost a bit on love
Cause it's hard to take a day to reflect on what is true
When I know for what I'm thankful, and what I'm thankful for is you

Is you

Now I'm staring at this bird as the afternoon grows dim
In the cold New England auburn I count my blessings once again
I am thankful for my family and my stubborn state of health
I am thankful for my cat and I don't have to thank nuthin' else
Cause it's wrong for just one day for what I always know is true
That I know for what I'm thankful, and what I'm thankful for is you

Yes I know for what I'm thankful and that, my dear, is you

That, my dear, is you
Track Name: Responsible Guy
I made you laugh, I made you cry
Yeah, I'm a responsible guy
I'm a responsible guy

You open and shine
And I close down and hide
Yeah, I'm a responsible guy

Pretty please, I ask of thee
Forgive me for my responsibility

I tend the garden, then let it go
Yeah, I'm too afraid to watch things grow
Yeah, I'm too afraid to watch things grow

Cause life is long, or long enough
And I don't have the heart to watch things rust
Yeah, I can't stand to see things rust

So pretty please, I ask of thee
Forgive me for my responsibility
Yes forgive me for my responsibility

I'm not strong enough to watch it break
A faithful man without the faith

The watering can sits idly by
Yeah, I'm a responsible guy
Yeah, I'm a responsible guy

The flowerbeds have all gone dry
I know it's me but I don't know why
Yeah, I'm a responsible guy
