Track Name: We Could Be Happy
Well you know that we can live
Leave the town that we were born in
Well you know that we can live
Let your makeup wear thin

You know we could be happy
All the people we are with
You know we could be happy
Teach yourself and teach your kids

You know that we can fight
Stay up one more lonely night
You know that we can fight
How long will it take us to decide?

You know we could be happy
All we have to do is try
You know we could be happy
Me and you and you and I




Don't sink in the water
You'll be there for quite some time
There's nothing better than eachother
No need to run no need to hide

You know we could be happy
Do we need a reason why?
You know we could be happy
At least once before we die
Track Name: Before It Snowed
I finally learned there’s no end to the road
Green Means stop and red means go
And fear is not a friend it’s not a foe
It is just a lover that you don’t know

But you walk so slow
And you talk so low
And your memories
Are all growing cold

You’ll miss your folks
And you’ll miss home
And you’ll miss the time spent when we were alone

I learned time spent is not money owed
I wish I had learned it before it snowed
Second thoughts mean nothing babe
Grab your friends we’ll throw a parade

When you say no
We should not go
We should stay inside
Watch one more episode

And you are so cold
And I’ve been told
To cure what’s inside of you
You gotta just let go

You gotta just let go
Yeah just let go
Just let go
Just let go

And you will roll, roll, roll down the road
Yes you will roll, roll, roll down the road
To a new place,
And I wont let go
Track Name: Lucky Ones
You get so worked up
You've finally had enough
But keep looking around it'll turn up
People have a way of coming back to the ones they love

When my hope is shaking but my will is set
I will remember you and I will make my bets
I'll hold you until that day in fall
Will you remember me at all?

Times have been hard, times have been rough
Just a glance back from where we came is enough
And we're allowed to push, we're allowed to shove
Because the money we spend will never be enough

And when that sun rises on another day
I will miss the moon I will hear her say
Son I won't be gone for too long
Please don't write me a love song


Oh we have no reasons tonight
We will dance to the sounds of a fight
Oh we will live by candle light
In a house on a hill somewhere, just hold on tight
And the kids will be alright

When my hope is shaking and my will is set
I will remember you and I will make my bets
I'll hold you until that day in fall
Will you remember me at all?

And when you leave me alone someday
I will always remember that fate favors the lucky ones
And babe we're the lucky ones,
Yes we are the lucky ones
Track Name: Laundromat
I remember we were walking we were talking all night
I told you about my parents you told me how yours fight
I remember we were looking for a place too quiet
We can never be alone tonight

Are you awake?
Are you awake?
Am I awake?

In the Laundromat
But girl it doesn't pay to live like that
You take off your sweater, and I'll take off your hat
In the Laundromat

I remember I was nervous and you asked me why
I told you it was cold and it was late and I was so tired
But fear is not my friend when were alone and we can stay a while
My thoughts are racing when cars are passing by

Are you awake?
Are you awake?
Am I awake?


In the Laundromat
But heaven has no key and that's a fact
My thoughts are spinning you're an acrobat
In the Laundromat
And girl it doesn't pay to live like that
You take off your sweater, and I'll take off your hat

In the Laundromat
Hearts are breaking but mine's intact
Will you forgive me for how I act
I was sorry in that Laundromat
Track Name: Things You Throw Around
They say the cold reaches only one
And that cold is an unloving friend
But they say being holed up with an artificial sun
Will bring you to your end

But cake on the makeup
and hold on while you can
Take my problems
and forsake them to the island

Hold my hand up
Push my heart down
With the weight of the things that you throw around
Soak in regrets
Drown in your ball gown
With the weight of the things that you throw around

They say that warmth is the kinder one
and that warmth will only come to those who need it
They say your ego is your second son
And that fame will only come to those who feed it



So melt in the second hand carpet
That you got from your mother
And wade in the waters
Just go on and trust one another

Hold my hand up
Push my heart down
With the weight of the things that you throw around
Soak in regrets
Drown in your ball gown
With the weight of the things that you throw around

She's going down and she knows it
I'll get her a bouquet of roses
I'll give her a way out
And she will give me a way in
I will stand at the corner
Just waiting for the wind
And it will come

So fake every feeling
Pretend that you never lost yourself
Hold on to what you know
But give up on everything else
Track Name: Woman
I remember it was a free for all
There were some feelings I just couldn't recall
It was for a day or two

I remember how it always was
And how I thought it would always be
It was for a day or two

Because She's in love
And I am undercover
She's my friend
And I am just her lover

I remember how it used to go
And now Nobody will tell you how to get back home

Do you see your reflection in the water
Do you see the way it moves
I can move with you

When our time is up and we're done it's through
And death shall all the world subdue
Our love will live, and later life renew
Because She's in love
And I am undercover
She's my friend
And I am just her lover

I remember how it used to go
And now Nobody will hear you on the radio

Oh I met a girl
But she is a woman
Oh I met a girl
But she has changed

So if you keep your distance
Yes if you keep your distance
Know Love is your armor it's your only defense
yes love is your armor it's your only defense
