Track Name: my love
time gives you a gift
time takes it away

i'm not in this for love
i'm not in this for my love of anyone
i'm in this for my love of everyone

time give you a gift
and i gave it away
Track Name: ohio
send me out the ohio
til I hit the mississippi
let me run til I grow tired or til I hit the sea
let me run til I grow tired or til I hit the sea

i am not ohio, I am not ohio I am tennessee

when my limbs grow weak
when I lose all my strength
i’ll sink down into that muddy creek
it runs red. it runs red. it runs red

i am not ohio, I am not ohio I am tennessee
Track Name: the horses
i’m going out back to shoot the horses
in the morning I’ll start all over again
7 years and all my money
laying in a heap in the field

heather, gorse, and yarrow grace the hillside
tonight i’ll make my bed and let the wind wipe out my mind
when I leave it’s not for the joy of running
but to know that I was able to leave it all behind

everyday I’m shooting the horses
every morning I start all over again
every night I’m shooting the horses
every night I start all over again
Track Name: sliver moon
sliver moon,
wake me from bad sleep. tell me I’ve not forgotten you

sliver moon
the air hangs heavy with early summer trees in bloom

sliver moon
the city’s singing. guide us steady, steer us true

sliver moon
still as my breathing, take this old heart and make it new
Track Name: big light
big moon shining over my brother and me
on the shores of lake erie
on the hazy shores of lake erie
big light, keep shining
big light, keep on shining

drive right on down to the lake
a case of beer, some baseball gloves, and one great lake
we’re learning how to talk
while we walk the beach and not say shit
in every way that I know how I love you
in every way that I know how I love you
don’t give up

big night, going over everything
from the railway tracks to the willow trees to the abandoned factories
no factories left living
no making a living

a short drive out of the city
to park at a place where we could see the still valley winding
that winding grand river

it’s my home but I can never go back
never wear clothes, never put on those shoes and work in them
never break my back
what kind of inheritance is this?

don’t give up
we’re helping each other everyway we can
we’re gonna help each other everyway we can
don’t give up
Track Name: sister
i have always been your sister
you can see it in my eyes
not a coin, not a road, not a border
there are no sides

i found an answer. since I was seventeen
float like a bee in a room

i have always been your sister
i’ve never been a man
start at my toes and peel back
there’s skin under the skin

i found an answer written inside of me
float like a bee in a room

and when I am in my own I make the prettiest sounds
high above you all, singing out
right there with you all, singing out
when I am in my own I make the prettiest sounds
Track Name: when i'm leaving
when I’m leaving, am I really leaving?
when my blood is underground
and my bones have turned to clay
and your skin’s under my fingers

when I’m leaving, am I really leaving?
when the light is past the west
and the kids are out past dark
and the sheets are still in tangles

it only takes a single drop the break the skin on the water’s surface
and I am not what I once was when I reach a single point under the ground

when I’m leaving, am I really leaving?
