Catch You While I Can
When the rooms are crowded eyes will wander
Never knowing what they'll find
I came in waiting on another
Now you're all that's on my mind
Beneath a chorus of conversation
What no one else can see
Is a gamble between two strangers
That's taken a hold of me
The sun is shining but it's still cold
This January is bitter as I've ever known
You're always smiling, there's no reason to be
You're always chipper at least that's how it seems
Well, Catherine I can't give you anything
Much more than this couple hundred dollar ring
And promises ain't never been my strength
But you are all I'll ever need
It's killin' me to write the word "goodbye"
I've wadded it up and tossed it a thousand times
We both know the reason
There ain't nothin' to explain
But I know that my leavin'
Will spare us both the pain
(Desiree), I can't hold you any longer
(Desiree), You love his money more than me
Half Mile Hill
Half Mile Hill, eight years old
Standing on top with the world below
Me and my dad
Talking man to man
Suitcase packed, he was moving out
Said, It's no one's fault, but I had my doubts
And I have them still
Up on Half Mile Hill
I Thought You Knew
I'll follow you
Like a bridge to the end of the world.
I'll take you with me everywhere I go, girl.
But you ran from love
Like a bullet from a gun.
That powder burned my heart deep as this desert sun.
You never told me it was over,
You never told me anything at all.
Now I'm out on the road and asking myself why
She Rides Away
Sunset on a chapel, when I close my eyes I see her and she's prayin'
Ripples in the holy water, kneelin' in the light that is fadin'
Askin'for forgivness 'cause she knows that it is me that she is breakin'
Angel flyin' with my heart
She rides on the edge of no tommorow in a rusty El Comino
She flys as wild as the wind on the border of Laredo
She rides away
Questions in the dark
Songs For Sale
Boiled peanuts anytime, painted on a plywood sign
Pull to the shoulder and buy a sack
An old man with a dirty face swears they're the best you'll taste
Grows 'em fresh in that red dirt field out back, yeah, that's a fact
Grace is a mechanic's wife and their toe-head boys are her whole life
Sews patches on blue jeans night and day
Never does much for herself, doesn't dream of fame or wealth
Just a ballpark bleacher and a place to pray
That's How I'll Remember You
Wakin' up in the sand, sunburn on your nose
You scream and squeezed my had
When your east Kentucky toes hit the Atlantic
Summertime in Brooklyn, Mustard on your lip
I knew I loved you by the bottom of the fifth
I never planned it
A million perfect moments go rushin' through
Our first trip to the ocean, your first time on
The Sound Of A Million Dreams
Seger was singing words I could believe in
And "Main Street" was my street that night
So I called up Samantha and asked her the
Chance of us
Running out 'neaththe moonlight
Well, she's not with me now, she can always
When I rewind the radio dial
And like it was then I feel her on my skin
And I'm back there for awhile
