Track Name: Every Heartache
words and music by Britt Arnesen

Darling, once again our love
Is feeling like it's doomed
I know just what you're thinking of
And what you plan to do
Well I've been up and down this road before with you
Always leaving me the fool

Good times only last for so long
As soon as I get used to it my happiness is gone
Only loves I've ever known are the ones I've lost
For every heartache, I've got a sad sad song

I still have the very first flower that you gave to me
The note you left that said "I'm sorry"
From back when we had sympathy
The vase is chipped the rose is shriveled
There's nothing left to see
Just me and my crumbling memories

Turn out the light and make a wish
I lay me down to sleep
And dream of waking up to better days
You know I'd give my soul to keep
It's a cold and lonely house and you still have the key
I don't go nowhere and no one visits me
Track Name: Blanket
words and music by Britt K. Arnesen

Tear off a number and wait in a chair
In a room of strangers, my worries are not theirs
Can't shake off this feeling that life isn't fair
Careening down a broken rail

With my entire life wrapped here in a blanket
Soft and small, close and warm
My entire life is wrapped here in a blanket
That is all, that is all

Thursday's a nightmare, I woke up in a fright
In a cold room no refuge from the fluorescent lights
I'm running I'm crawling there's no place to hide
From the monster's hungry eyes

Tuesday alone again I don't wait for a call
I'm done mumbling, I'm done walking 'round wondering where you are
Worrying for what I cannot change won't get me very far
No monster gonna break my heart

I packed all my bags but I won't catch a flight
I won't swing on a hammock at the house I cannot buy
I'm a frequent believer in wrong black and white
There's lucky ones and hard hard times
Track Name: La Palouse
words and music by Britt Arnesen

Les prairies palousiennes
Cultiver du blé
Terre comme un damier
Verte ou en jachère
Croissance et sénescence
On a ou on n'a pas de chance
Les collines s'étendent
À l'infini

Aller à La Palouse, aller
Entendre l'appel du vent
La Palouse est morne quand tu n'es pas là
Aller, aller la bàs

Tu as planté beaucoup des graines
Des fleurs sauvages que j'aime
When I was dark and missing you
Elles me consolaient
Au loin, une grange
Par ici, ta mémoire
Parfois un avion
J'attends la moisson

Viens avec tes ennuis
Viens avec tes grands soucis
Viens et laisser les ici
Oublie la maladie
Croissance et sénescence
Ce n'est pas les fleurs qui me manquent
La tristesse d'être sans toi
J'attends la moisson

Britt's translation:

The Palouse prairies
Grow wheat
Landscape like a checkerboard
Green or fallow

Growth and senescence
You're lucky or not
The hills go on
To infinity

Go to the Palouse, go
Hear the call of the wind
The Palouse mourns when you're not there
Go, go there

You have planted many seeds
Of the wildflowers that I love
When I was dark and missing you
They consoled me

In the distance, a barn
Over here, your memory
Sometimes, a plane
I await the harvest


Come with your troubles
Come with your biggest worries
Come and leave them here
Forget the sickness

Growth and senescence
It's not the flowers that I miss
The sadness of being without you
I await the harvest
Track Name: Queen Rainier
words and music by Britt Arnesen

My late baby always keep me waiting
My late baby always keep me waiting
Anticipating you is killing me

My cold baby went to no from maybe
My cold baby went to no from maybe
I've got to beg for every kiss that I don't steal

My green baby don't want to share his lady
My green baby don't want to share his lady
Oh don't you let him see you around with me

My red baby I done made him angry
My red baby I done made him angry
There's nothing I can say that he'll believe

My blue baby had a rotten day
My blue baby had a rotten day
Oh blue baby don't you take it out on me
Track Name: Never Enough
words and music by Britt Arnesen

I got a rocket ship with an on off switch I go flying
Give an astronaut a forget-me-not and be kind to him
Chart a course to a distant star
And leave them wondering if that's where we are

It's never enough
I'm counting light years between us
Never enough
Lost in space my love

Got a paper route and twenty dollars that I've been saving
Get on my bicycle I don't know quite where it'll take me
Couldn't make it up the canyon walls
Had no warning the water's gonna fall

Back to Earth again 7:30am daylight
Up at the Teton Dam at the moment when it all changes
Thirteen thousand cows down in the fields
And you come running back to me
Track Name: Groupie
words and music by Britt K. Arnesen

It is what it is. Things are just what they seem
I fell asleep in your arms and woke up in a dream
Fly across the mountains just to hear you sing
You're a sunrise, I'm a bird on the wing
Take me with you

Imaginary holiday, my mind paints a scene
A kiss down by the boathouse where the water meets the trees
Promise that you'll never love anyone but me
I hear anything I want to believe

It is what it is. Things are just what they seem
You'd marry me for the money but I've got none up my sleeve
Plant another dollar and hope one grows into a tree
I'm a poor boy now. I might not always be

It is what it is. Things are just what they seem
Any hurtful words I throw come back twice as mean
I never meant to bother you. I still want you to be free
My kingdom for the time you still loved me
