Track Name: Arizona
I was working on 17 when you told me you had to leave
Moving westward on the Arizona trail
You said good old boy don't you even worry
I'll see you in the desert-land soon.

Now he's gone, so young.
Now he's gone, so young.

Life was passing by so fast we didn't have a chance to speak
Growing up miles apart has its own rewards
But I was a fool, lost my cool in sin and misery.
A good word from ya brother was all I ever needed

Now he's gone so young.
Now he's gone so young.

I heard the news on a Tuesday, man what a shock on my colored screen
I didn't think I had to find out this way
I knew you would tell me brother don't you even worry.
I'll see you in the desert-land soon.

Now he's gone, so young.
Track Name: Lonesome
There's a firesale of hope, you better get it quick
You take a ride down the pike and you'll see it
Oh how it feels to be lonesome
Ohh to be lonesome

I was just a young man, when I met you.
You were filled with fire and smoke. I left you. Yes I did.
Oh how it feels to be lonesome
Ohh to be lonesome

Oh how it feels to be lonesome.
Oh, oh, oh, to be lonesome
Track Name: Nothing Left to See
Dreaming this life away was fine.
The way I felt before and now I need some more
Feels like a time for moving on
What's here today will soon be gone.

Sometimes the stars do not align
They catch you lookin' up and leave you feeling blind
Now you're living lost and out of reach
Head in the clouds, feet off the ground

Why do I always feel like there's somewhere else I need to be?
This world's not my home and there's nothing left here for me.

Sometimes there's nowhere left to fall
You reach for a window and then you find a wall.
Maybe a different point of view?
Stop breaking down, start breaking through.

Dreaming this life away was fine.
Feels like a time for moving on..

Why do I always feel like there's nothing left to see?
A love that isn't real but it's all that's left for me.

That's left for me yeah.
That's left for me.
Track Name: 20 Years
Oh you're lyin' there so easily on my bed
I would've never thought I would see you again
But you're worried now. I know what you have to say.
"I'll be picking up my bags" Leaving just the same.

Honey you say I'm selfish, but you haven't left your own hometown for over 20 years.

Oh you're cursing my name almost every single day.
I would've always known this is where you're gonna stay.
But you're thinking hard, about leaving for the city
Could you quit your idle side. Your doin's are such a pity.
Girl you gotta move along. Just like I did when I dropped you then over several years ago

Could you stand to face life with no one to love?
I tried oh so hard to be the man you lost, then found.
Again it's a lost cause.

Oh you're driving down those same old dirty streets.
I've come to always know this where you're gonna be.
But I'm on my way out. I'm leaving Massachusetts.
Don't you think for a minute I loved you. Don't you think it.
Now I'm driving far away. You won't see me for another...

20 Years
Track Name: Empty Bottle
I'm telling you I ain't good enough
You had it right when you said
I have got a bubbled head circling above the clouds
Cut off from it all

But what was I thinking of
When we were drinking on your front porch for the first time
I felt inclined to kiss but I knew it wrong
all the while you said

How I wish you'd throw me out, you should just throw me out.
I've got no home in your heart
How I wish you'd throw me out, you should just throw me out.
I'm just another Empty Bottle along the highway.

Push comes to shove once again
We argue who deserves the blame
Self deprecating thoughts are always on the brain.
I guess we're just the odd couple again.

But what was I thinking of
I searched the hallways of my mind
I tried to lie and say that I was happy all along.
Oh how, how I wish

How I wish you'd throw me out, you should just throw me out.
I've got no home in your heart.
How I wish you'd throw me out, you should just throw me out.
I'm just another empty bottle along the highway.

Along the Highway
Track Name: Moving Onward
Asleep with four wheels humming along
Another two rear-side carrying the load
I woke up puzzled, said, man where we been.
We're moving onward to a whole other land

Hello to Kansas, Missouri to be fair
We're into a roadhouse, we played to blank stares
The faster we played, the drunker they were.
We're moving onward, to california shores

Breezy bay frisco, caught me some fog
Onto San Diego, the land of the sun.
I got off at LA bright light but no stars.
I'm moving onward, I'm moving on.

Windy Chicago, that's what I'm told.
We sang a few numbers and back on the road.
I'm wishing for peace, I know I'm alone.
We're moving onward, but I'm going home.

Dirty Old Allston, I missed you my dear.
It's been so long now I've counted the years.
But it's all been worth it just to be in your sights.
I'm done moving onward, I'm home alright.

I'm home.
