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
Blanket 04:18
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
La Palouse 04:07
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 chorus 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
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
Never Enough 03:06
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 credits
Groupie 03:23
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
