Track Name: mrs.
She is a brown haired peddler of sweet.
She is a year long flavor of the week.
All I want to do is sweet her off her feet, but hold tight.

She swivels heads with single-handed grace.
She has to die for written on her face.
All I want to do is take her to this place where I'll be.

Thank the maker for her eyes and wide small
and all that's in between.
Right now could be a good time for Riley.
Everybody thinks so anyway, so I will just sing...

She is a green-eyed player of the part.
She is a smooth skinned plunderer of heart.
She is the end that had me from the start.
Track Name: soulshaker
When she caught my eye for the first time
I kind of thought I died.
Now I don't want to live anymore
until I'm by her side.

She can make you lie just by looking in her eye
now your heart is cauterized - don't you feel the fool.
She can give you fever. She's a little heartbreaker.
She's a little soulshaker, isn't she?

She's an angel, or a devil, or a dream
cause it's kind of hard for me to tell.
She's a perfect ten. She's like oxygen,
cause I think I need her every day or it's the end.
She's like dynamite - blowing up my life.
Now I don't want to live anymore
until I'm by her side.

She's not an enemy. She's not a friend.
Nothing but trouble in the end.
She's a soulshaker.
Yes she is.
Track Name: help is on the way
There's something weighing on you.
It's gone from bad to worse in just one week.
Now nothing's making sense.
You're sleeping in convict beds.
There's something weighing on you.

There's something holding you down.
Fine friends have now become your enemies.
They're laughing at your bad sense.
They're pulling shennanigans.
There's something holding you down.

Help Is On The Way
Don't waste your life away,
cause help is on the way.

There's something been on your mind.
You've seen highs and lows and in between.
You're tired of faking bliss,
so I'm breaking you out of this.
There's something been on your mind.

Help Is On The Way
Don't worry and don't be afraid.
cause help is on the way.

There's something weighing on you.
You need an arm to lean on - here I am.
There's black where there should be white.
Your whole life has been one big fight.
There's something weighing on you.

Help Is On The Way
Don't throw in the towel today.
cause help is on the way.
Track Name: suzie loves me
Suzie loves me for the way I can dance.
So I cut some rug in my new brown pants.
Suzie says, "dude your caterpillar rocks!"
So I pull out a jumbo cardboard box.

Suzie meets me at the Main Express.
She buys some Captain Morgans, but I digress.
All dressed in red she really comes with it.
She has a motto to forgive and forget.

So heaven help me.
Heaven help me and you.

Suzie says, "hey I like you man,
but this is not at all what I had planned.
Here's a number to relieve your mind."
It says 'from Suzie: had a real good time'.

So heaven help me.
Heaven help me and you.

Suzie loves me.
Suzie loves me not.
Track Name: it's winter and my head is cold
Turn the knob and then your start to fade in.
I've got nothing on my mind.
Do you remember that cold dark night
back in icy December
when we laid low and listened to each other?

I remember that way that you looked -
with your blue and your yellow colors.
I want to be near you
hold you close so that only I hear you
and you could tell me secrets only you know.

....and the next time that Ineed you you'll be lost.
Trapped in a box.

...and the next time that you need me I'll be home.
Cursing your name.
Track Name: big heart (that's true)
Big ears, here's looking at you now.
I've got a lot of love in my heart for you.
I don't know what I'll do without you here -
I guess I'll have to hope you stick around for a while,
and that's true.

That's true. Look at me now loving you.
It's plain to see now: it's all true.
And that's true.

Big nose whatcha seeing out the window?
It's time to come to bed to the middle where you lay.
Sit. Stay. Come to me when I call you.
Good boys listen to the words I say,
and that's true.

That's true. Look at me now loving you.
It's plain to see now: it's all true.
And that's true.

You're something everybody wants:
some loyalty. Some friendship too.
That's you and that's true.

Big heart what kind of mess you getting into?
You've gotta look both ways before you cross.
Let's take a walk down the strett to the corner park.
You've gotta stay close or you're gonna get lost,
and that's true.

That's true. Look at me now loving you.
It's plain to see now: it's all true.
And that's true.
Track Name: ahumado
Barring any bumps or bruises
this could be a real good day.
The sun is shining and stas aligning
just for me.

I'll take you on a little boat ride
to see the houses on the beach.
Where fish are fried and Serda lies
by the sea.

Welcome to Ahumado
out on the left sea.
Pack your bags and
meet me on the black beach.
Go ahead and get
your golden brown tan on.

Green and gold are bought and sold
out on the streets of houses old
and sugar cane rains down upon your very soul.
I want to show you where the sun goes
off to sleep below the sea.
And afterwards a billion stars
for us to see.
Track Name: you're a mess
You're a mess, need a fire crew
climbing ladders just to rescue you.
You can thank them when you hit the ground.
We'll celebrate.

You're a ship on the seven seas.
There's a gale - you need a calming breeze.
You can thank me when you step ashore.
We'll run away. We'll sail away.

You've gone a long long way on your own.
Now let me help you find your way back home to me.

You are lost in the desert heat.
Need a drink and a bite to eat.
I can take your order anytime.

You've gone a long long way on your own.
Now let me help you find your way back home to me.
Track Name: bolivia
Cursed be La Paz - robó mi corazón!
Leave it to me to find love that is fleeing.
How long? Cuánto tiempo?
Will my dearest friend find her calling in Bolivia?

Bolivia! Santa Cruz challenges me to a duel over you.

Tell me there's love for a poor and simple boy.
Don't let this heart stay empty for long.
Return to arms open wide for you.
Da la bienvenida! Welcome to Bolivia!

Bolivia! Santa Cruz challenges me to a duel over you.
Track Name: stupid pot pie people
I've got a pocket full of secret recipes
for all the people here who are hard to please.

She wakes up and remembers she has a job to do:
get all her ducks in a row and eggs in baskets too.

She says, "yeah, this is fine - alright."
She's better than ever. She's making some good dough now.

She ordered them in pink, but she got white instead.
"Someone will pay for this." - or that's what Friedman said.
She sends out fifty baskets of chocolate love with a bow.
They go to Milwaukee with care to the man who says no.

She says, "yeah, this is fine - alright."
She's better than ever. She's making some good dough now.
Track Name: perfect
Wherever she man wander...
whatever place she be....
she'll have my warm arms waiting
when she comes home to me.

In case I'm feeling low
and there's no remedy.
In case the whole world crumbles
all around me.

She is a perfect dose of penicillin.
The only bed that I will lay in.
She is the perfect one for me.

High roads are always easy
with a sherpa guide -
a good partner willing
to stay by my side.

She is a perfect length of rope to save me -
a shelter from the winds that beat me.
She is the perfect one for me.
Track Name: wasted day
I'm up to my eyeballs - oh no.
I can not see the end - oh no!
I'm prepared to go on all day.
I'm ready to go all the way.

So sit up straight and keep on
doing nothing all day long.
Close your eyes and dream away.
I'm sad to say I've thrown away
this wasted day.

I'm up to doing anything
as long as it keeps you with me.
Stand by for what may come our way.
I'm broke down, used up, led astray.

Needless to say
I'm disappointed in my day.
I've sat and watched the grass grow.
Now I might just sit and wait here for you.
Can I? No.

I'm up to my eyeballs - oh no.
I can not see the end - oh no!
I've got to get a better plan.
Cause I can't be just a half a man.
