Track Name: Your Voicemail
Baby, you there? 'bout an hour outside St. Louis
I'm in New York City
I'm switching planes in Chicago
hey, gotta go soundcheck, but I just want you to know, I'm in Lafayette. I'm in customs.
I'm okay.
I'm starving
Hey, I don't smell good, um,
I just woke up at this rest stop and I miss my kids
It's been a long time, just a few more days

Hey, it's your voicemail again
it's like kissing a ghost, I can see you still in my mind.
I can almost taste you but I can't feel you.
Oh, the road's been good and I've been good but maybe you found someone new, it's like kissing a ghost but I can't feel you

Baby?

I need you and I need you to wait for me
the same way I wait for you
Out here traveling, every hour of every day
I think of you
I want you so bad it's a crime
I want you to know that I'm strong, I want you to think I can do this
but I'm so scared and it gets harder every day

Hey, it's your voicemail again
It's like kissing a ghost
I can see you still in my mind
I can almost taste you but I can't feel you
I miss you like breathing-
I mean, I feel you all the time
Hey, it's your voicemail again...
Do you still feel me?

Is this your way of asking me to choose?
Please, I'm dying

Hey, it's your voicemail again
it's like kissing a ghost I can see you still in my mind
I can almost taste you
but I can't feel you
it's like kissing a ghost, there is darkness and air but I can't feel you.
Track Name: Things I Ought to Have Said
God, you're cute even after you've been drinking all day
but after awhile, doesn't this all seem the same?
and after awhile, all day becomes all night and baby,
you were lucky to wake up today
it's hard to love a drinking man like I love you
when all this loving only makes you feel a fool
I'm not mad, I'm not mad but things are getting rough
I'm not mad, I'm not mad, I've just seen enough
So take your bag, take all your things
Take a kiss and here's your hat
You know I could look at you all day but
I can't watch this any longer, can't ask you to change
and I can't have the kids grow up seeing you this way
It's no easy thing to love a drinking man
I sure tried, I loved a drinking man
I loved you
I loved you but patience never got me anywhere with you, no baby,
Patience never got me anywhere with you, I loved you.

I loved you.
God looks after drunks and fools and small kids. Maybe he'll look after you.
Track Name: Twenty Cats
what you looking at, kid?

Never mind, love, luck will turn one day
you're going to find someone to love you
Never mind, love, luck will turn one day
oh, me, oh my, I promise this to you

I had a dream, a wicked dream- and I woke up alone
Warm arms,
Warm bed,
I think it's better if I went out right now and got twenty cats instead
At least there'd be someone to come home to
there'd be someone I could talk to
oh, look at me

Never mind, love, luck will turn one
I swear, I swear, I promise you my friend
Never mind, love, luck will turn one day
oh me, oh my, oh why do I bother?

Empty arms and empty bed
Another New Year's Eve
watching clowns and staring at the floor
I could have been young, I could have been fun, I could have been dripping in gold
and my heart screams
and my heart screams oh------

As you play mind games with yourself, there's no one else here
no, there's no one else here to hear me
another night, another night
another night out of my life…

Never mind, love, luck will turn one day
You're going to find someone to love you, good and proper
until then, until then, you keep your chin up
you are dear.
You could be young, you could be fun, you could be dripping in gold
And they will leave you there alone.
Track Name: She Knows
baby, we can see you're crazy 'bout this guy
but you know, even it's hearts and flowers and every day is Valentine's
if he did it to her, he will do it to you
you know what they say
oh, she knows, oh, she knows, oh, she knows

we only want the best for you, don't you see?
Don't you see what we mean?
oh, he knows, oh, he knows, oh, he knows

How do I put this one quite
well, there's some baggage here
I don't want to say, exactly, but a mother has her fears
you're not sixteen, you can't just say, what about love, oh, what about love
you're not sixteen, you can't say, what about love, what about love, what about it?
and he makes you cry again
and she knows, and she knows, and she knows

but you never say so

and that look in your eyes, says you know what I'm thinking
and he knows, and he knows, and he knows

you were still sleeping
but I can feel your heartbeat, heartbeat
I can feel your heartbeat, heartbeat
do you feel mine?
