Track Name: Like You Do
In the wake of loving you
I've found a reason to be true
My bad intentions let me down
And I am laying here disarmed
I wasn't looking for true love
Just a little bit of fun
Now somehow I can’t let you go
Oh, oh oh, oh oh

Nobody does it like you do, like you do
Nobody does it like you do

Ain't that just the lovin' game
And I always played the same
Many have tried and many failed
Wear them as trophies 'round my neck
Gone are my ever-rambling ways
I'm gonna love to the grave
Only one thing I know for sure
Oh, oh oh, oh oh

Feet in the air head on the ground
Didn't know I was missing 'til I got found

Nobody does it like you do
Nobody
Nobody
Nobody
Track Name: Daggers
Tell me again of the road and its turns
Anything to brighten your words
If even those words are daggers to me
Let those daggers cut you free
Come out of hiding, it’s clear what you need
There’s a whole in your heart it’s starting to bleed
If time will not mend it, you need to leave
If not for yourself then me

Marlon, I don’t stand a chance
This house could never hold your heart
No need to drag it out

Imagine me, Marlon, here all alone
Did you think of this house and us growing old?
It’s the one sweetened thought (that’s) kept darkness away
Never did it cross your mind

Now that your calling’s become such a curse
Mmm
Mmm
Track Name: Good As Gone
I left New York City and its winter sting
I woke up hours later to a Carolina spring
The snow on the streets had turned to blue-green grass
It had been a little while since I’d seen anything like that
Soon enough you realize all the things you’ve lost
A dream for a dream and that’s exactly what it costs
The hearth of a home you trade it for the road
The light of a lover it all goes to the show

Don’t go, I can’t stay little darlin’
When I make a plan
I take it to the bottom
Don’t go, I can’t stay little missy
When I made a plan to cross the Mississippi
Don’t go, can’t you see I’m good as gone?

It stays on my conscience with each new passing town
The death in my family that I won’t see to the ground
The memory of a man and all for which he stood
There’s many things I left that no one ever should.

Don’t go, I can’t stay don’t you get it?
When I make a plan it’s hard to forget it
DOn’t go, I an’t stay that’s for certain
You don’t need to hurt me, I’m already hurtin’
Don’t go, can’t you see I’m good as gone?

You can leave but don’t come back
You can leave but don’t come back
You can leave but don’t come back
Don’t let the Verrazano slam you on the way out, boy
You’re gonna be the death of me
It’s better than being half alive in New York City.

Don’t go, I can’t stay little vixen
When I made a plan to cross the Mason-Dixon
Don’t go , I can’t stay don’t you get it
When I make a plan it’s hard to forget it.
Don’t go, can’t you see I’m good as gone?
Track Name: Be Your Strength
I don’t want to lose this thing
I can see your feet slipping
Through mud and the dirt
We’ll make this work
Darling, I will be your strength

I know it’s been hard work
Lately it’s been getting worse
Some will deceive you
But I will never leave you

AIN'T NO USE IN CRYING
CRYING
CRYING
DARLING, I WILL BE YOUR STRENGTH

Don’t listen to what they say
People can say hurtful things
They don’t see you the way that I do
Let me be your everything
Even when the light is gone
As a living thing you push on
I’m part of you, you’re part of me too
And I will give you everything

Darling, darling

I’m part of you, you’re part of me
I’m part of you, you’re part of me
