This little town ain't so little anymore You can sit and watch the houses all come down If the rain don't take 'em first the floods will come Take the wood and steel back where they're from Little town you're not so little Little town look how you've grown Workers pouring concrete where the roses used to grow Little town I used to play in Little town you've lost your fight Say hello to skyward towers Say goodbye to little lights This little town ain't so little anymore Lost it's heart and soul and it's charm has gone The little road's a highway Even Main Street 's reached the sky Oh little me, little I, how it's grown Little town you're not so little Little town look how you've grown Workers pouring concrete where the roses used to grow Little town I used to play in Little town you've lost your fight Say hello to skyward towers Say goodbye to little lights This little town ain't so little anymore Traded in their wagon lanes for tolls The little piece of heaven that I used to call my own Has spread it's wings so far oh how it's grown, how it's grown. Little town you're not so little Little town look how you've grown Workers pouring concrete where the roses used to grow Little town I used to play in Little town you've lost your fight Say hello to skyward towers Say goodbye to little lights

Run Out the door Down the stairs into the night Pick out a star hanging out in the sky One for you, One for you and I Slow Down Look right into the night Pick out the darkest cloud in the sky And find yourself a silver lining Lean in darling Whisper The Universe is listening The Secret is, Whatever you are wishing. Don't forget the stars are for wishing on Down Like the sun as you sink in your bed Swirling around in your head Thoughts of you, thoughts of you and I Lean in darling Whisper The Universe is listening The Secret is, Whatever you are wishing. Don't forget the stars are for wishing on

Kicking up dust Digging up dirt Throwing sand in the ashes Rubbing salt in the wound Telling whole truths About little white liars Time ticking by Throwing gas on the fire Sitting at the table Rubbing old hands The clock ticks for old loves gone by Time’s a liar Time’s a thief Speeding us up as we get older Time’s a liar Time’s not true If I know one thing, time ain’t wasted on you. (Instrumental) There's a light at the end of the hallway Buzzing with old memories Tales of fond times Sitting at the table Rubbing old hands The clock ticks for old loves gone by Time’s a liar Time’s a thief Speeding us up as we get older Time’s a liar Time’s not true If I know one thing, time ain’t wasted on you.

Main Street 04:07
Main Street There was a fire on the corner They roped off the street I was in bed when the messaged came in Are you alright my dears Are you alright And i said yeah - We’re alright Burn it down said the flame To the ground said the wind Everybody stared at the firemen Burn it down said the flame To the ground said the wind As the fire had it’s way with Main Street There was a place to feel ‘Cozy’ On the corner of Main All those years taken for granted The ashes fall slowly like Memories rain down The back alleys and the gutters of the town

Eyes like the moon Don't come to me with your eyes like the moon Your heart full of holes Where the arrow shot you Don't come to me with the world on your shoulders, your hands in your pockets and your head down low. Oh.. I can't buy my way into your smile Oh.. when you're down the whole world isn't right Don't come to me with your face at your feet. Stained with the tears from your aching heart. Don't come to me shaking your head Your smile turned ‘round at the floor

Wise man’s got his life left to live He’ll just sit back and let the world happen Taking nothing into his own hands Living life in somebody else’s lane Way to go old man Taking all you can from me Wise man’s taking it for granted Breaks the rules when he plays the game So sure he’s got it all figured out. Can’t carry your debt with you when you leave Way to go old man Taking all you can from me It’s no one else’s fault you’re on your own

Carousel 03:39
Carousel My guitar could tell some tales about the walls in this apartment Could tell the world that I ain’t seen nobody in days ‘Cept the boy that’s wrapped around my heart - just like a carousel Words we flung across the room, did nothing for our egos Flee the scene and leave me here to pick up all the pieces And the boy is wrapped around my heart - like a carousel Woooooooooooooooooooo - like a carousel There’s ‘bout two hours in the day when everybody here is sleeping I can write my feelings down and hope to Hell there’s meaning For the boy that’s wrapped around my heart - just like a carousel Woooooooooooooooooooo - like a carousel Take your pennies to the store and cash ‘em in for some quarters So I can wash the clothes that you’ll be wearing when you leave me And the boy is wrapped around my heart - like a carousel Woooooooooooooooooooo like a carousel

Smoke & Mirrors The ashtray is a bucket filled with water in the dark and the stars are smoke and mirrors just like me. The hiss snaps through the night like broken glass under my feet and the sky is smoke and mirrors just like me. Simple as we seem, Keeping up appearances We never say the things we mean We never reach the dream The smoke is dancing delicately, circling my face and the night is smoke and mirrors just like me. The light's extinguished carefully and leaves a single plume I am smoke and mirrors but I can't see. Simple as we seem, Keeping up appearances We never say the things we mean We never reach the dream

Chase Your Blues When the crops are picked and the sun casts The longest shadow on the town Scattered twilight dances so gently Until every bit of it goes down We split the olden trees Of fallen yesterday and Place them on the fire Chase the cold away I ain't gonna call it a night babe cause I’m gonna chase your blues away I’m gonna chase your blues away even if it takes all night I’m gonna chase your blues away gon' start a fire in your heart In your heart When I see you smilin’ with the sun rise and every bit of sadness gone only then will satisfaction be had with the job that I’ve done

Lead You On 03:09
Lead you on. Eat, sleep and drink some rum Pray that you’ll find love at the end of the bottle Rinse, repeat, until you’ve had about enough Fight, flirt and round it goes, like vinyl tends to do Well I say let’s put me and you into the grooves - oh I will lead you on I will lead you on and on and on Til the end of the road Til the love is gone Walk through the puddles with wet socks The sky opens up the gates to a flood Wishing you were here Dancin’ in the rain oh I will lead you on I will lead you on and on and on Til the end of the road Til the love is gone
