Out and By 03:08
winter, out and by, oh metal field oh river sky, oh corporeal treeline pirouette, oh timber road sundown silhouette, let it go i didn’t know you were waiting i didn’t know you were right in the middle of something somebody’s saying, i didn’t know you were waiting go knit the pall, all attracted to as snow falls, light refracted through polar standin larch, silent run of deer spit of broken cloud, happy new year baby i didn’t know you were waiting i didn’t know you were right in the middle of something somebody’s saying, i didn’t know you were waiting didn’t know you were right in the middle of something somebody’s saying, i didn’t know you were - watch it walk out on us - us again watch it walk out on us - us again i didn’t know you were waiting

Telluride 05:01
not a footnote, no appendix, no annotated text no suggested further reading list nothing magic in the realism doesn’t leave a lot of room for interpretation you walked off like the Pistons in 91 not that it came as a surprise to anyone you have a history of burying your history but when the snow melts and you find your keys the piles of penny, a comb and a frisbee a burnt CD and written in Sharpie, just says “Road Trip” i remember Telluride, all the wrongs we couldn’t right i love you now on the other side it’s just different no instruction, no legend, no clever rhyming clues no glossary to muddle through no directions, no inset map no carefully plotted geocache that’s a fight I don’t wanna win would you talk to me you have a history of burying your history You have a history with me but when the snow melts and the highways clear wanna bet anything you’ll be on 95 driving out out of here a tank of gas, a red knapsack no intention of lookin back what and where do you call home are you gonna spend the rest of your life alone i’m not sayin that’s bad or necessarily sad just knowing you, it’s different it's different oh my friend i will follow you through the darkness and the light iwill be there i will be there In the end

Pockets Full 05:52
static on my fingertips remember how we sparked remember when we stole tequila snuck into the park all of those bad decisions all of those bad mistakes i made all of those bad decisions and all that long division all of the love i tried to save but when i told you i was going you told me you would stay and all your treasures filled my pockets like pockets full of weights remember hiding silver stones instead of skipping across waves you’d rather keep your treasures hidden instead of throwing them away all of those bad decisions all of those bad mistakes i made all of those bad decisions and all that long division all of the love i tried to save but when i told you i was going you told me you would stay and all your treasures filled my pockets like pockets full of weights i saw your dark side i saw your soft side i saw you banged up bent and blue and i miss you

there’s a place, a house of memory there’s a place, a room for forgetting i can’t follow you all the way in but i will try there’s a place there’s a place, a house, a house of little things a house of you and me there’s a place, there’s a place a room, a remembering i can’t follow you all the way in, but i will try there’s a place sometimes i go, all alone, and sometimes there’s a place, there’s a lake, green trees, cotton candy sunset skies there’s a place, at dawn, the places we are born and the places where we die i can’t follow you all the way in but i will try there’s a place sometimes i go, all alone, and sometimes you go with me, and i’m with you, again sometimes i wait sometimes i stay too long now i know you’re gone off and runnin on your own i can’t follow you all the way in but i will try, i will try sometimes i go, all alone there’s a place

call my grama, tell her what she means to me i still remember her piano bench and middle C call my friend, hear about her new baby one begins and ends and i'm standin in between probably maybe there is or isn’t a point to wondering why but i’ll try i was just thinkin about years go slipping by so we’re up on the roof try to prove it all or somethin i was just thinkin about reasons to love this life a starry night, your hand in mine i can do this, one more time i can do this maybe there is or isn’t a point to wondering why but I'll try you can’t outrun it baby but you’ll try you can’t outrun it baby but you’ll try you can’t outrun it baby, you can’t out run it baby you’ll die before you do, and me too, but we’ll try i was just thinkin about
