Skeeter 04:22
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

Lupines 03:17
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

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

Crybaby 03:07
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

Fall Slow 04:16
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
