Track Name: As the crow flies
Look into my eyes
So you can see my soul
There are very few that really know
The tenderness of a gentle touch
Or the bite that sinks to the bone
We can't resist temptation

Chorus:
Listen carefully to the blackbird when she sings
As the crow flies
A birds' eye sees everything

Speak for the weak
I'll always have your back
There are very few that see the strength in that
The gracefulness of an honest love
Or the cunning moves of a sly cat
The truth leads us to salvation

CHORUS

Listen carefully to the blackbird when she sings

Look into my eyes so you can see my soul

CHORUS
Track Name: Three bottles in
You’re one bottle in
At 8 in the evening
In a quiet midwestern town
When a touch of his hand
Stirs an emotion
You know you got to shut that right down

Now you’ve got to decide
On which damn direction
That you think you’re going to take
But you raise up your glass
To help with a decision
That you’re not ready to make

CHORUS:
‘Till you’re three bottles in
It’s hopeless to surrender
The devil’s in your head
And desire’s got your number
You know there’s no way you can win
When you start forsaking love for sin
Three bottles in

You’re 2 bottles in
And you’re making excuses
For not getting up to leave
You’re asking yourself
All the right questions
But the answers aren’t quite what you need

CHORUS

You’re 3 bottles in
It’s 6 in the morning
And you’re lying on your back awake
Wondering what the hell
Was the spell you were under
And you swear you’ll never do it again
Yeah you swear you’ll never do it again....

CHORUS
Track Name: She had a gun
Roses by a graveside
Bleached dry by the sun
6 miles form the roadside
Off of Highway 61

No one really noticed
When he just disappeared
Cuz she laid him down
With a bullet
One shot silenced all of her fears

CHORUS:
There was a time when she could have run
But she took a stand cuz she had a gun

Nineteen years of suffering
All the bruises and the shame
Well she's free now from the shadows
Living in a different town
With a different name

CHORUS

No one seems to notice
The darkness hiding behind her eyes
The coldness of December
Creeps into her shallow smile

CHORUS
Track Name: Pinch myself
Do you remember me?
‘Cuz I will not forget you
Or how we used to sleep
Underneath the willow
Life was simple sweet
Lying on your pillow
We were wild and free
With no place to go

But the seasons change and so does the time
But you never did in my heart or in my mind

Maybe I should wake up
Maybe I should scream
Maybe I should pinch myself
In case it was a dream....

I saw a red leaf fall down from the sky
And it landed so softly
So I ran over and picked it up and brought it to you

Now the seasons change and so does the time
But they never did in my heart or in my mind

Maybe I should wake up
Maybe I should scream
Maybe I should pinch myself
In case it was a dream....
Track Name: That's just the way it is
Sometimes we get stuck in life on rewind
I've been spinning the same records for so long
The comfort that it brings can be deceiving
What I thought was right turned out to be all wrong

CHORUS:
That's just the way it is
When living in fear sometimes living can be missed
This time I'm scared as hell
Eyes wide open trying to feel around the darkness
You can't resist
That's just the way it is

In the words of the Stones you can't always get what you want
The older I get the more sense that makes
If you pay attention the signs are brighter than the sun
Cut the shit can't change unless you change

CHORUS

Mirrors always tell the truth
Even if you choose not to look
There's no key more effective than an open mind
That's just the way it is
