Track Name: Can Anybody Tell Me
Can Anybody Tell Me (#320)
08/27/13 - FtLd


Kiss you in the morning
Then I wave goodbye
Everything seems so normal
Everything’s alright

Can anybody tell me
Can anyone say why
One day I have this feeling
The next day it’s a lie
The next day it’s a lie

Thought you would forgive me
Thought I could explain
Thought that it would somehow
All just go away

But can anybody tell me....

(break)

Can anybody tell me...

And if I am the only
One who is to blame
Because now I am different
Because somehow I changed

So can anybody tell me....

Track Name: Dust
Dust (#345)
04/01/14 - FtLd


No key in the lock
No mail in the box
All gone away
No dishes in the cupboard
No linens in the closet
Packed up and run away

Blue skies above me
Greyness surrounds me
Is it enough
These ashes I am given
The wind has delivered
And turned to dust

The sound of the silence
Where voices once called us
Too long too late
Your face in the morning
Whispering and warning
To go or stay

Blue skies above me
Greyness surrounds me
Is it enough
These ashes I am living
The wind has been given
And taken away

(break)

Blue skies above me
Greyness surrounds me
Is it enough
These ashes I am given
The wind has delivered
And turned to dust

So take down these timbers
And burn ‘em all to cinders
The memories remain
Then let the wind recover
These lost and lonely lovers
And blow them far away

Blue skies above me
Greyness surrounds me
Is it enough
These ashes I deliver
The wind has forgiven
Returning me to dust

Track Name: I'm Just A Dog
I’m Just A Dog
05/31/08 - NMB


I won’t bark
I won’t bite
I won’t shit on your lawn
I’ll be your best friend
Cause I’m just a dog

I won’t run
I won’t roam
No matter what comes along
I’ll be there when you get home
Cause I’m just a dog

I’ll be your
Lost and found
And when it all goes wrong
You can kick me around
Cause I’m just a dog

I could be
One bad hound
For you I’d fight King Kong
But in the end put me down
Cause I’m just a dog

And after we part
You’ll still hear this song
Cause I’ll steal your heart
Yeah I’m just a dog

I won’t bark
I won’t bite
I won’t shit on your lawn
I’ll be your best friend
Cause I’m just a dog

I’ll be your best friend
Yeah I am your dog

Track Name: Listen
Listen
05/15/11 - FtLd


The people on the land
Always try to take
But the land could give no more
So the city went away

And the people walked the desert
Looking for a sign
Trying to find a way to leave all
Their mistakes behind

But did you ever listen
To the lightening in the spring
It brings an early warning
Of the time when we must leave

So hold on to the past
Or just hold on to my hand
Then pick up all your memories
It’s time to start again

Who could tell the difference
Who would know how
Times leaves you here behind
Stuck in the here and now

So you try and see the future
But you can’t outlive the past
And love floats before you
Like a ghost out on the tracks

But did you ever listen
To the waves upon the sand
As they wash away our memories
They also wash away your sins

So hold on to forever
Just hold on to what you can
And when you can’t remember
It is time to start again

And in another system
A boy lays in his bed
Trying to catch the feelings
That are running through his head

And he wonders if we’re out here
In another space and time
And if we will still be here
When he journeys out to find

But did you ever listen
To the heart that beats alone
Bleeding for a memory
As it tries to find a home

So hold onto that memory
That beats beneath your skin
It’s the only one you’ll ever have
That makes you want to live

23.44.52 (Bm) - 34.55.63 (G)

Track Name: Smiling Jack
Smiling Jack (4DRB)
07/20/12 - FtLd


Down on the river
Smiling Jack does say
That everything you’re leaving
Was never meant to stay

Down on the river
Smiling Jack does pray
That everything you’re taking
Was meant to go away

And it’s a long
It’s a long
Long parade

Down on the river
Smiling Jack stands in the rain
Waiting to take the ferry
Over to the other side again

Down on the river
Smiling Jack complains
The boatman never gives him
Just what for he’s paid

So it’s a long
Oh it’s a long
Long parade

And Smiling Jack does battle
With every dream you’ve made
Tearing down illusions
Shoring up all your mistakes

Cause Smiling Jack’s a lover
Who really loves to hate
Everything you think that
Makes a god damn bit of sense

Cause it’s a long
Such a long
Long parade

And Smiling Jack’s the devil
And Smiling Jack’s a saint
So pray you to who you want to
But they can never take Smiling Jack’s place

Cause Smiling Jack’s the only
One who knows the way
So get you on the river
And get you in his grace

For it’s a long
Oh such a long
Long parade

Yeah it’s a long
It’s a long
Long parade
