Track Name: Skeeter
Skeeter left one broken night in 1989
He tossed a Jim Beam bottle at the city limits sign
In a stolen car with a wad of cash heading towards the dawn
Fortified by holy pills his road goes on and on

(chorus)
Skeeter’s going home tonight one way or another
He’s calling up all of his imaginary lovers
Dialing wrong numbers bending strangers' ears
Pleading amnesty for all his wasted years

Dad awoke to the slamming of the rusty screen door
Mama found her empty jewely box on the floor
Too late to try and stop him there's no time for regrets
The only thing he’s looking for is how to forget

Those Dallas nights keep creeping back in waves of tragedy
Was it Jane or Marylou the face he always sees
The dampness of her tears yanks his memory chain
Another stolen heart along with all her pocket change

Skeeter’s taking refuge where the dirty laundry hides
Serenaded on the couch to the buzzing of the flies
While moon beams dance through broken windows something calls him home
The sleeping vagabond takes his final ride alone
Track Name: Lupines
She's the nectar of a brand new flower
A summer that they thought would never end
A two-lane highway through a river valley
Setting sun just around the bend

Picking lupines, purple lupines
She always loved lupines the best
She looked right through them and started blooming
Put 'em in a jar with the rest

It's the dawn of a brand new morning
The horizon is a lupine-covered band
Her love's still captive up in that tower
The rescue never goes to plan

He brings her lupines, purple lupines
She always loved lupines the best
She looked right through them and started blooming
Put 'em in a jar with the rest

She's the music, any kind she chooses
Half the time she's mumbling to herself
Can't bear the truth, no, and can't dispute it
Can't take a memory down from the shelf

Of picking lupines, purple lupines
She always loved lupines the best
She looked right through them and started blooming
Put 'em in a jar with the rest
Oh put 'em in a jar with the rest
Track Name: Got Your Back
GOT YOUR BACK
Words and music by Britt Arnesen

A memory that you could fly
Spreads its folded wings
It's been so long since you dared try
Your pockets are full of dreams

But Babe I got your back
Whatever you need I want you to have
Any time you're troubled just ask
I got your back

I'm working on a time machine
To find the movies that I've never seen
The promises I couldn't keep
Oh the saint I cannot be

But Babe I got your back
Whatever you need I want you to have
Any time you're troubled just ask
I got your back

If winter chills you to the bone
My hands are always warm
I'll shovel all the driveway snow
And start soup on the stove

Babe I got your back
Whatever you need I want you to have
Any time you're troubled just ask
I got your back

If nightmares come and tell you lies
Don't toss and turn
I'll play your favorite lullabies
Until the dawn returns

Babe I got your back
Whatever you need I want you to have
Any time you're troubled just ask
I got your back

The wiser folks they tell us so
Hard times will come and go
Through it all our love just grows
I know it's built to last

Babe I got your back
Whatever you need I want you to have
Any time you're troubled just ask
I got your back

But Babe I got your back
Whatever you need I want you to have
Any time you're troubled just ask
I got your back
Any time you're troubled just ask
I got your back
Track Name: Crybaby
words and music by Britt Arnesen
CRYBABY

You’ve been crying big baby tears
And I’ve been trying not to cover my ears
Sit in the corner go on fuss and sulk
See how well that works for you boy

I’m all warmed up and ready for
You to pick yourself up off the floor

Spouting nonsense kicking open doors
You don’t like your dinner
Just throw it on the floor
Whine and wailing like a foghorn loud
The upstairs neighbors are getting out

When you come to try and make it right
We’ll talk it over go on apologize
And take your hundredth second chance
You’re lucky I love you now go to bed
Track Name: Fall Slow
Words and music by Britt Arnesen
FALL SLOW


Fall slow shooting star
Burn low burn hot
Wherever you are

Leave me with a tender kiss
And the hope for a thousand more like it
Our worlds part up ahead
Some day maybe I'll go home with you instead

Fall slow shooting star
Burn low burn hot
Wherever you are

Take a stroll in the sunset glow
Take my hand and hold it close
No need to say what's on our minds
We've seen the stardust in each other's eyes

Fall slow shooting star
Burn low burn hot
Wherever you are

Night by night day by day
Loving miles and days away
When I wake with a song
Give me daydreams to hold in my arms

Fall slow shooting star
Burn low burn hot
Wherever you are
Fall slow shooting star
Burn low burn hot
Wherever you are
