Sore Heart Days 
  
I saw that blackbird again 
Showing off her red wing 
I was thinking of you 
And nothing at all 
Last night the moon fell just so 
Making love to the shadows 
I was so close to you 
And then you were gone 
  
Oh, it's a living thing 
You trip the wire on a memory 
Oh, it all comes back to me and now it’s gonna be 
Another one of my sore heart days 
Remembering you 
  
I hear the wind start to blow 
It’s raining in my window 
I was dreaming of you 
Making the rounds 
This room I try to rearrange 
Every move turns out the same 
And I listen to you 
Not making a sound 
  
Oh, it's a killing thing 
You pulled the trigger on a memory 
Oh, it all comes back to me and now it’s gonna be 
Another one of my sore heart days 
Remembering you 
It's like you never even went away 
How you keep cutting through 
Another one of my sore heart days 
  
And I want to keep on feeling it, baby 
It’s the only thing that’s true 
Don’t take away this emptiness 
It’s all I got left of you 
  
Another one of my sore heart days 
Remembering you 
It's like you never even went away 
How you keep cutting through 
Another one of my sore heart days 
I can’t go on without you 
Another one of my sore heart days 
Remembering you
 

17-35-69 
  
Tell a little story about the price you pay 
When you can’t see past today 
You end up singing a sad sad song 
About the one who got away 
  
Jimmy met a girl in the summertime 
His world began to shine 
But he was young and there was time to kill 
In autumn he left her behind 
  
He said, I don’t feel 17 
I’m not ready for love, if you know what I mean 
I think I better step back, I feel like I’m caught in between 
I don’t feel 17 
  
Annie they said was a mystery 
She had shadows in her past 
She wanted so bad to just break free 
But there was something holding her back 
  
She said, I don’t feel 35 
The lines on my face are what it took to survive 
I’m through waiting for the rest of my life to arrive 
I don’t feel 35 
  
On and on the days go by 
You’re always running behind 
Love is the only thing that stops time 
  
James came home to a quiet house 
He had everything just so 
Went to bed with a book about a man out of time 
And the girl who never let him go 
  
He said, I don’t feel 69 
My legs are still strong, there’s hills left to climb 
I look in the mirror and the eyes of a young man still shine 
I don’t feel 69 
The lines on my face are what it took to survive 
I think I better step back, I’m not quite as old as I seem 
I don’t feel 69 
I don’t feel 35 
I don’t feel 17
 

Maybe We Can Save Each Other’s Lives 
  
You had a bad dream, baby 
It’s written on your face 
We fell asleep as lovers but now I’m disgraced 
Now listen to me, baby 
I know you get afraid 
But I am not the one who made you feel so betrayed 
  
You think it ought to come easy to you 
But now we got to work to see this through 
  
Baby, let’s give it another try 
Maybe we can save each other’s lives 
  
I spent some bad years, baby 
I made a big mistake 
Sometimes you can’t explain the choices you make 
I don’t know how you found me 
If this is meant to be 
You’re gonna find it in your heart to give forgiveness to me 
  
I know we’ve been down this road a hundred times before 
And now we got to push it a little bit more 
  
Baby, let’s give it another try 
Maybe we can save each other’s lives 
Before we both slip over the side 
Maybe we can save each other’s lives 
  
I know you don’t need me to make it 
I know you don’t need anyone 
But baby, without love what’ll we become? 
  
I know we can’t start over 
I can’t take you back in time 
But if you reach out, babe, I’m gonna throw you a line 
  
Baby, let’s give it another try 
Maybe we can save each other’s lives 
Before we both slip over the side 
Maybe we can save each other’s lives 
 

Evidence 

I know you worry 
And you wonder 
Is there any way to see this through? 
So many good days 
Thrown after bad days 
You ask me what it all adds up to? 

You and I go on 
And these troubles slip away 
Yeah, we make it to the straightaway 

You want to see the evidence? 
Hey, baby, look around 

If there’s another, I don't want to know her 
You’re all my eyes can see 
It’s like I told you 
Don't let the wrong clues throw you 
Just stand back and let it be 

You and I walk on 
Through the wind and the cold and the rain 
Yeah, we make it all the way 

You want to see the evidence? 
Hey, baby, look around 
You want to see the evidence? 
Hey, baby, I’m around 

I know it’s hard to let go 
But I will be there for you 

Yeah, you and I go on 
We’re together in the final frame 

You want to see the evidence? 
Hey, baby, look around 
You want to see the evidence? 
Come on, baby, I’m around 
Yeah, you want to see the evidence? 
Come on, baby, look around 
You want to see the evidence? 
Hey, baby, I’m around


All the Light I Need 

I went digging for treasure 
On my hands and knees all night
So far underground
The days put up no fight
Giving up on who I was
The wrongs became all right
Oh, then somebody hit the light 

Gold and silver everywhere
But I can’t see a thing without her there 

She’s everything I need
The water I drink, the air I breathe
Take away the moon and stars
And I believe her love is all the light I need 

Now when the night falls
Like a blindfold on the sky
I stumble on and on
'Cause I know that she’s nearby
Yeah, she lights the way home
With a sparkle in her eye
Oh, every faint hope magnified 

Watch the shadows of time
Fade away when she walks by 

She’s everything I need 
The water I drink, the air I breathe 
Take away the moon and stars 
And I believe her love is all the light I need

She’s all the light I need
 

Trap the Moon 
  
Lying here beside you 
Nothing but this sheet to hide you 
Is that the moon peeking through the trees? 
I wonder where the day went 
Every breath was heaven sent 
If only we could make this moment freeze 
  
Why can’t tonight go on forever? 
Baby we were meant to be together 
I know the sun is gonna rise too soon 
So tonight we’ll trap the moon 
  
I never thought I’d find you 
Love comes sneaking up behind you 
And you fall right to your knees 
It’s only you and me here 
There’s nothing in the world to fear 
Now let's leave it to the birds and bees 
  
Why can’t tonight go on forever? 
Baby we were meant to be together 
I know the sun is gonna rise too soon 
So tonight we’ll trap the moon 
Tonight we’ll trap the moon 
  
Maybe if we hold our breath we can stay right here 
Maybe if we whisper the cold morning light won’t appear 
Maybe if we close our eyes and pray tomorrow can’t find a way 
To follow today 
Baby, don’t let go 
Tonight we’ll trap the moon 
  
Lying here beside you 
Nothing but this sheet to hide you 
Is that the moon peeking through the trees? 
  
Why can’t tonight go on forever? 
Baby we were meant to be together 
I know the sun is gonna rise too soon 
So tonight we’ll trap the moon 
Tonight we’ll trap the moon  
 

Watching the Misfits 
  
When the sun goes down on this misfit town 
All the ladies paint over their daytime frowns 
And the men button up their lips and prepare to drown 
  
Another night at the Midway Lounge 
Table for two without a single sound 
There's nothing you can do to turn this thing around 
  
Out in the street, lost in the crowd 
Hand in hand a million lovers on the prowl 
  
I’m watching the misfits walk by 
Waiting for someone to catch my eye 
And if it don’t fit where you are 
Maybe the right fit ain’t too far 
Watching the misfits walk by 
  
It’s a big-top circus downtown tonight 
Misfit couples, every shape and size 
They're smiling like clowns but it's part of a disguise 
  
Those his and her tattoos are wearing through 
Another boardwalk promise to undo 
  
I’m watching the misfits walk by 
Waiting for someone to catch my eye 
And if it don’t fit where you are 
Maybe the right fit ain’t too far 
Watching the misfits walk by 
  
I can see you flying above the crowd tonight 
Reaching out for somebody to catch you in the air 
Maybe you don't believe that love is meant to be 
But everybody's got to fit in somewhere 
  
I’m watching the misfits walk by 
Waiting for someone to catch my eye 
And if it don’t fit where you are 
Maybe the right fit ain’t too far 
Watching the misfits walk by 
Watching the misfits walk by 
 

I Never Saw It Coming 

Come on, baby, come to bed now 
I locked the doors, I turned out all the lights 
All quiet on the western front tonight 
  
Close your eyes and try to sleep now 
No way to stop this thing that we’ve begun 
Tomorrow might arrive without the sun 
  
I never saw it coming 
It was just another day 
Then everything changed 
  
Head out early on a desert road now 
We can’t afford to wander off the track 
Take only what you can carry on your back 
  
I never saw it coming 
It was just another day 
Then everything changed 
  
Come on, baby, keep your head now 
I blocked the door, I turned out all the lights 
Just static on the western front tonight 
  
I never saw it coming 
It was just another day 
I never saw it coming 
Then everything changed 
  
Just another day, like any other day, don’t look the other way 
Just another day, like any other day, don’t let it slip away 
 

The Wedge 
  
I’m a wedge 
Straight through the ice 
Polar cap deep freeze 
Breaking up the North Sea 
Watch my front end slice 
  
I’m a wedge 
Right up the gut 
Fullback power drive 
Chewing up third and five 
A leather-head in the ruts 
  
I know he wants to hold on to you 
But I’m coming through 
  
If you think I’m gonna sit around here and wait for you forever 
Baby you know you got another thing coming 
Let me show you how to create a little bit of separation 
I’m gonna put pressure on tonight 
  
I’m a wedge, I’m a wedge 
  
I’m a wedge 
Making lumber, jack 
Hot steel, soft pine 
Splinters on the timberline 
I leave it all in a stack 
  
I’m a wedge 
Blasting out of the sand 
Himalayas bunker shot 
Sink it for the jackpot 
Now tell me who’s the man? 
  
Every night he’s all over you 
Now I’m coming through 
  
If you think I’m gonna sit around here and wait for you forever 
Baby you know you got another thing coming 
I know how to apply leverage to the situation 
I’m gonna put pressure on tonight 
  
I’m a wedge, I’m a wedge
 

Dying Without You 

Without you the sun comes up a different way 
Without you my window traps the gray 
Without you I look outside and wonder why 
Without you it ain’t even worth a try 
  
Without you I don’t wanna go out 
My head is so checked out 
Everything I try to do goes so wrong 
And I know it sounds crazy 
But I swear it just slays me 
When the radio starts playing that sad song 
Playing that sad song 
  
I’m dying without you 
I’m sighing about you 
I’m crying I need your love tonight 
I’m dying without you 
  
Without you I spend my days tripping back through time 
Without you I’m stuck on a simple rhyme 
  
Without you I replay the last night 
You said we were all right 
Every frozen image I reach for is gone 
No memory can fill me 
But it still always kills me 
When the radio starts playing that sad song 
Playing that stupid song 
  
I’m dying without you 
I’m sighing about you 
I’m crying I need your love tonight 
I’m dying without you 
  
All night long the hook cuts through 
So I sing along 
I can’t go on one more day without you 
  
I’m dying without you 
I’m sighing about you 
I’m crying I need your love tonight 
I’m dying without you 
  
Without you by my side I’m through
