Track Name: Hot Black Top
I loved my own reflection
And the sound of my own voice
Full of dreams and wild convictions
Being brave the only choice

Ohio’s missing mountains
Great lake don’t smell like the sea
I knew only of adventures
started walking to get free

Was it your fault or was it mine
I’ll take the blame now or I’ll die trying

It’s an uncomfortable silence
Sitting with yourself
So I laced up fresh nikes
Picked up the pace headed somewhere else

When i got tired of running
I rode a horse I used to know
She needed grain i was out of money
So I let that old mare go

Was it your fault or was it mine
I’ll take the blame now or I’ll die trying
You were a mirror I was a mirage
Wet as a river just hot black top

Now i’m standing out in the desert
Your love sweet eastern sunrise
All was soft around the edges
Painted in a golden light

But the day it grew much hotter
Ran out of shade and you intensify
I sweat out all that mattered
I had no tears left to cry

Was it your fault or was it mine
I’ll take the blame now or I’ll die trying
You were a mirror I was a mirage
Wet as a river just hot black top
Hot black top

So i could wander for some shelter
But i think i’ll just rest here
Lie among the Cactus flowers
beautiful pain the living share

I hope that death comes quickly
I don’t want to linger on
Maybe i’ll go singing
I’ve always loved those old folk songs

About the girl from flat ohio
That place that never felt like home
She was always after something better
Something better takes way too long

Was it your fault or was it mine
I’ll take the blame now or I’ll die trying
You were a mirror I was a mirage
Wet as a river just hot black top
Hot black top
Track Name: Evergreen
I had a love so sweet no one could take her from me
Till the whole world felt new with the other girl
How did my love did plead you gave your word to me
I can share everything with you but the other girl

The heart is an old-growth forest
Passion is a wildfire
I was singing along with the chorus
Goes burn burn burn burn burn
Baby there you are

I had a love so far i don’t know where they are
Or if it feels hard with the other girl
Nothings in their way as i’m easily replaced
Wonder if it feels the same with the other girl
I had a love so vain don’t care if they go or stay
Its the way they look at me the other girl
It don't mean a thing I’m just running from bad dreams
Never meant to make you cheap the other girl

The heart is an old-growth forest
Passion is a wildfire
I was singing along with the chorus
Goes burn burn burn burn burn

I could fall far
I could fall fast
Blue-eyed charm easy laugh
Filling up my windowsill with such pretty things
But will i ever know a love that’s evergreen

The heart is an old-growth forest
Passion is a wildfire
I was singing along with the chorus
Goes burn burn burn burn burn
Baby there you are
Track Name: Born to Lose
I smoked all of my weed
I drank all of my wine
Cause if i can’t be happy
I can at least pass the time

Wheels keep turning in my head
Like i was burning up I-65
Drinking weak truck stop coffee
Bored and pissed off with life

I wanted to make you happy
I wanted to do everyone's askin'
Maybe you were born to love me
I can see that’s true
Maybe you were born to love me
Baby, i was born to lose

We can sit down on this sofa
And let the experts deconstruct
The id and the ego
How it all got so fucked up

Your knight in shining armor
I’ll come screaming into your town
Heart heavy as the titanic
With nowhere to go but down

I wanted to make you happy
I wanted to do everyone's askin'
Maybe you were born to love me
I can see that’s true
Maybe you were born to love me
Baby, i was born to lose
Track Name: You Were the One
I hope you’re doing fine
The van is running alright
You found some peace of mind
With me outta sight

You were the one
All along
You were the one
I could depend on
It’s too little
And it’s too late
Cause i’m giving up
Today

Time heals all wounds
But I’m still in love with you
I realize what we lost
I’m sure we’re better off

You were the one
All along
You were the one
I could depend on
It’s too little
And it’s too late
Cause i’m giving up
Today
Track Name: Take Your Blender
You don’t want to talk in circles
You don't wanna meet in person
Left me screaming into a void
Searching my head for a solution

I’m pretty sure we could get along
I’m pretty sure we could share the dog
You can come see me anytime you want
A change of heart is it always wrong

You don't wanna talk in circles
You don’t wanna look into my eyes
I built you a coffin to die in full of nails
I built you a whole lie to live in from a fairy tale

I’m pretty sure we don’t have to sign
I’m pretty sure we could take more time
I can come see you anytime you want
A change of heart is it always wrong


Take your pride take your blender
Take the dog
leave the papers
I will sign
on the line
Wear a pressed shirt to the courthouse
How's your sister how's the baby
You can ask me any old thing
We could talk about the weather
Or whatever you were thinking

I’m pretty sure we could get along
I’m pretty sure we could share the dog
I went about this all so wrong
Change of heart
damage done
Damage done
Track Name: Normal Day Like This
Is the falling ever forever
Tennessee time flying by fast as it came in
now when i leave i come home again
I would keep this to myself but I can’t help it
i’d like to see the world the way you do

Let me touch you everywhere
Map your body with my fingertips
I know life it isn’t fair
But how’d i get so lucky as this
You make me think that magic exists
On a normal day like this

I dont know if work will ever get much better
we put in years for this career
Firebrand wearing dried up spray paint
impatient inside a desk chair
you would color inside the lines but you can’t help it
i’d like to see the world the way you do
Could be occupied for life but we can't take it
I’d like to see the whole world with you

The roommate's dog is shedding
And the cat is up and puking
And your chandelier is dripping
You are beauty in the basement
The engine needs spark plugs
And my guitar with the cracked top
for every complication
your eyes can solve them
And I know that isn’t true
I’d like to know the world the way you do

Let me touch you everywhere
Map your body with my fingertips
I know life it isn’t fair
But how’d i get so lucky as this
You make me think that magic exists
I’d keep it to myself but i can’t help it
I’d keep you to myself but i can’t help it
i’d like to know the world the way you see it
On a normal day like this
