Track Name: I'll Take You
On a sunday in May
when I first saw your face
I thought you were somehow familiar
You told me that day
that I wasn't safe
I said don't let your memories hold you

You told me you'd never be close
to anyone like me
and you are all I see

Now I'm moving away
somewhere far from L.A.
and you're staying behind to keep climbing
I made up my mind
that I wouldn't this time
go for someone who's still out there wandering

Now you're closer to me
than anyone has been
and you are all I see

Now I'm packing my bags
but I don't want to go
I'm leaving the place that we used to call home
but I'll take you wherever I go..

How I do wish
that I had you to kiss
in the dark of this cold Sunday morning
We'll work out our lives
we'll wait for our time
but for now I'll be with you in writing

Now you're closer to me
than anyone has been
and you are all I see

Now I'm packing my bags
but I don't want to go
If I wait here too long
then I won't ever know

I'm leaving the place that we used to call home
but I'll take you wherever I go...
Track Name: Full Moon Song
I'm counting stars
hanging low on the water
I'm stealing thoughts of your
sweet, sweet caresses
I'm fading like the cigarette
burning on your windowsill
it reminds how it was easy then
and it's better when it's new

You're hot and heady
I'm warm and steady
Our bodies ready

Full moon song...

I struggled to find love
struggled a loner
then I stopped searching for it
just let it come around
invited it in
even made it a drink
made it feel like it was welcome
and I welcome the feeling inside

You're hot and heady
I'm warm and steady
Our bodies ready

Full moon song...
Track Name: Waiting For A Train
You might think I live out here
I'm just a vagabond
Lost my mind a while back
don't know where I'm from
Must be on the alcohol
the powder, or the weed
but I ain't lonely
I'm just waitin' for a train

I follow sounds like beating drums
a poacher for a feast
passers-by they don't give a damn
they're content to let me be
people say I've given up
I'm worthless to the seams
but I ain't lonely
I'm just waitin' for a train..

When it comes
When it comes
When it comes
I won't even say goodbye
When it comes
When it comes
When it comes
I'm just waitin' for a ride...

You might think he lives out here
he's just a vagabond
lost his mind a while back
don't know where he's from
must be on the alcohol
the powder, or the weed
but he ain't lonely
he's just waitin' for his train

When it comes
When it comes
When it comes
I won't even say goodbye
When it comes
When it comes
When it comes
I'm just waitin' for a ride...
