Track Name: Head Over Heart
I will drive to Toronto
Stop every mile
Get there and turn around
You know, maybe it's better
But better is worse
And layin' my armor down

Oh, it's head over heart, always head over heart
Oh, it's head over heart, always head over heart
But this time the heart got a head start
Now you know I can't want no bit part

The more time that I leave
The more novels you read
Past pages a twist of fate
Me, a passage to quote
In a song that you wrote
And play like an afterthought

Oh, it's head over heart, always head over heart
Oh, it's head over heart, always head over heart
But this time the heart got a head start
Now you know I can't want no bit part

I ain't said nothin' true
To a "hey, how are you?"
Maybe all of this time
My heart knew what to do

Oh, it's head over heart, always head over heart
Oh, it's head over heart, always head over heart
But this time the heart got a head start
Now you know I can't want no bit part
Track Name: Call It Done
We never go down to Vegas, we just stay close to home
Always gamble casinos with the locals on poles
You favor poker on Mondays and I stay on the slots
Til your cigarettes are smoked and all my quarters are gone

Call it lost, call it settled, call it done
Let's just quit while ahead, no one's winning this one
Call it lost, call it settled, call it done

We stay at home on a Tuesday, never get out of bed
Do the crossword from every old paper instead
You give up all your to-do lists, in exchange for my phone
In the morning we'll catch hell, but all today is our own

Call it lost, call it settled, call it done
Let's just quit while ahead, no one's winning this one
Call it lost, call it settled, call it done

Hold on so tight, that our hearts are bruised and knuckles white
Better to know when to close our fist or let it go

I must've broke all the dishes, given you that black eye
But I just can't remember a moment besides
Letting my hair down so slowly, as we waltz to the room
Tell me what we fought about, cause I ain't got a clue

Call it lost, call it settled, call it done
Let's just quit while ahead, no one's winning this one
Call it lost, call it settled, call it done
Let's just quit while ahead, no one's winning this one
Call it lost, call it settled, call it done
Call it lost, call it settled, call it done
Track Name: Wanting
Kiss me in motion, til we collide
I won't ever be wanting, if you get me right
I won't ever be wanting, if you get me right

We went to see a silent movie
A man on piano was playing along
You took my hand and led me to dance
We waltzed right among all the drunk and the fools

Kiss me in motion, til we collide
I won't ever be wanting, if you get me right
I won't ever be wanting, if you get me right

Two people's longing, bodies responding
I never belonged to a man before now

Kiss me in motion, til we collide
I won't ever be wanting, if you get me right
I won't ever be wanting, if you get me right
Track Name: If You Don't Know
When I was young, I must've been a real handful
Runnin' around with all you trouble-makin' boys from school
Every day momma reminded me to keep my place
I always knew that she meant business when she would say

If you don't know, know, know
If you don't know, know, know
If you don't know then you don't live here anymore

Momma was right, she pegged you a no-good man
Daddy, he said, "I ain't gon' walk you down the aisle to him"
Prove 'em all wrong and just tell me that you love me
I would've thought that all these years would've made easy

If you don't know, know, know
If you don't know, know, know
If you don't know then you don't live here anymore

What is it to know something
Feel it in your bone
It's not choosing anything
That chooses on it's own

Curtains are closed, they're fadin' in the morning light
Sittin' alone, just watchin' the wet paint dry
No way of hidin', you took all the home from this house
I couldn't tell you if I belong here or somewhere else

If you don't know, know, know
If you don't know, know, know
If you don't know then you don't live here anymore
All I know is I don't live here anymore
Track Name: Waterproof
I'll buy a map, you get the cash
Fill up the backseat with old tapes and magazines
I'll draw the dotted line, you stay awake and drive
We'll make love on the passenger side

Such a long way to go, and it's threatening to rain again
Will it soak us through?
I'm not sure we're waterproof

Been here before, flown down this interstate
Dug up our change for the toll booths and whiskey bars
No need to pick a town, just drive til the car breaks down
We'll buy postcards to prove what we found

Such a long way to go, and it's threatening to rain again
Will it soak us through?
I'm not sure we're waterproof

We could drive on forever, but when I watch you sleep
Miles of quilted and rocky terrain lie between you and me

I'll buy a map, you get the cash
Fill up the backseat with old tapes and magazines
We push away we try a new city on for size
Fix the roof but it's raining inside

Such a long way to go, and it's threatening to rain again
Will it soak us through?
I'm not sure we're waterproof
I don't think we're waterproof
Track Name: Buried
Tide me over til winter folds me into the storm
I will bundle in layers I forget aren't your arms

What if I'm lost? What if I'm not? What if I'm buried alive in my body?
Will you dig for me?

Spin myself up in circles, I'm afraid I still know North
If I always knew better, what am I still waiting for?

What if I'm lost? What if I'm not?
What if I'm buried alive in my body?
Will you dig for me?

Wake in my grave, it's so quiet
Where did everybody go?
Hands reach out but claw their own way home, I am alone

Weathered and failing body, years you'll see in my hands
What does all of this matter, if I won't remember then

What if I'm lost? What if I'm not? What if I'm buried alive in my body?
Will you dig for me?
