Grant Gibson I love this tune! I felt like I was on a stroll through the stars and galaxies.The entire album is refreshingly pleasant to the ear of the listener. Organic, real. Favorite track: Fall Slow.

Skeeter 04:22
SKEETER Skeeter left one broken night in 1989 He tossed a Jim Beam bottle at the city limits sign In a stolen car with a wad of cash heading towards the dawn Fortified by holy pills his road goes on and on (chorus) Skeeter’s going home tonight one way or another He’s calling up all of his imaginary lovers Dialing wrong numbers bending strangers' ears Pleading amnesty for all his wasted years Dad awoke to the slamming of the rusty screen door Mama found her empty jewerly box on the floor Too late to try and stop him there's no time for regrets The only thing he’s looking for is how to forget Those Dallas nights keep creeping back in waves of tragedy Was it Jane or Marylou the face he always sees The dampness of her tears yanks his memory chain Another stolen heart along with all her pocket change Skeeter’s taking refuge where the dirty laundry hides Serenaded on the couch to the buzzing of the flies While moon beams dance through broken windows something calls him home The sleeping vagabond takes his final ride alone

Pirates 03:24
PIRATES I’m a pirate on a sea of open arms the treasure I seek is stolen love no ransom I take no princess escapes ocean below hearts above like long john silver on the bounding main navigating on through a storm cutlass by my side avast and belay looking for a harbor safe and warm swashbuckling tales of buccaneers treasure chests uncovered two by two grappling hooks in hand I’m prepared to make my stand my boarding party waits for it's cue pieces of eight mean nothing to me it’s that sweet embrace that I desire just one diamond kiss stolen from ruby lips sets my looting soul on fire

Lupines 03:17
LUPINES She's the nectar of a brand new flower A summer that they thought would never end A two-lane highway through a river valley Setting sun just around the bend Picking lupines, purple lupines She always loved lupines the best She looked right through them and started blooming Put 'em in a jar with the rest It's the dawn of a brand new morning The horizon is a lupine-covered band Her love's still captive up in that tower The rescue never goes to plan He brings her lupines, purple lupines She always loved lupines the best She looked right through them and started blooming Put 'em in a jar with the rest She's the music, any kind she chooses Half the time she's mumbling to herself Can't bear the truth, no, and can't dispute it Can't take a memory down from the shelf Of picking lupines, purple lupines She always loved lupines the best She looked right through them and started blooming Put 'em in a jar with the rest Oh put 'em in a jar with the rest

Uniforms 03:31
UNIFORMS this uniform I wear this cover on my bones has trapped me in an old mans skin and followed me home somewhere inside my head lives a younger man that still wears a smaller size who's chin stretches the world still looks bright days full of sunny skies the ever hopeful smiles and inviting looks of a young girls wondering eye once cast my way are not the same today they can’t see through my disguise I’m trying to connect the face in the mirror with the one that lives inside because in my mind standing behind is the one this uniform hides

GOT YOUR BACK Words and music by Britt Arnesen A memory that you could fly Spreads its folded wings It's been so long since you dared try Your pockets are full of dreams But Babe I got your back Whatever you need I want you to have Any time you're troubled just ask I got your back I'm working on a time machine To find the movies that I've never seen The promises I couldn't keep Oh the saint I cannot be But Babe I got your back Whatever you need I want you to have Any time you're troubled just ask I got your back If winter chills you to the bone My hands are always warm I'll shovel all the driveway snow And start soup on the stove Babe I got your back Whatever you need I want you to have Any time you're troubled just ask I got your back If nightmares come and tell you lies Don't toss and turn I'll play your favorite lullabies Until the dawn returns Babe I got your back Whatever you need I want you to have Any time you're troubled just ask I got your back The wiser folks they tell us so Hard times will come and go Through it all our love just grows I know it's built to last Babe I got your back Whatever you need I want you to have Any time you're troubled just ask I got your back But Babe I got your back Whatever you need I want you to have Any time you're troubled just ask I got your back Any time you're troubled just ask I got your back

PLEASE TELL ME please tell me what's on your mind what's that shadow over your heart I thought you’d be here by my side forever so please tell me why we've drifted apart you can't hold a person to their words a promise must be kept of free will and even though your heart has grown colder I loved you then and I love you still you always told me that I was so special a touch like no other you once said so don’t tell me that life you pledged is over or your undying love now is dead don’t take the dreams we used to share and cast them aside throw them away for if dreams become only memories I’ll lay awake and search for yesterday

Crybaby 03:07
CRYBABY You’ve been crying big baby tears And I’ve been trying not to cover my ears Sit in the corner go on fuss and sulk See how well that works for you boy I’m all warmed up and ready for You to pick yourself up off the floor Spouting nonsense kicking open doors You don’t like your dinner Just throw it on the floor Whine and wailing like a foghorn loud The upstairs neighbors are getting out When you come to try and make it right We’ll talk it over go on apologize And take your hundredth second chance You’re lucky I love you now go to bed

Poison 03:11
POISON her love is poison poison like a witches brew I drank it in with every single kiss my heart said danger danger trouble through and through I've never ever known a love like this she conquered my world like a venus in the night the goddess of passion and desire she offered me a sip of forbidden love consuming me with a raging fire my number was up once I drank from her cup a potion of seductive force I guess I should tasted temptation on her lips hearts on a collision course I fell into a trance a deep romantic spell an overdose of love’s narcotic pill I woke up with a need a craving desire that only her kisses could fufill

MAN ON MY MOON You've known me, in all of your years I've been true Held in orbit by a simple lovesick tune All for you the first man on my moon To reach me through endless skies your song flew Made a landing in a dream in my room Your melody has made me a lonesome fool Footprints stayed but the flag won't wave without you I long for you the first man on my moon This song's for you the first man on my moon When you're weary I'll fill up your rocket with my fuel Chart you a course back to my room Renew you when you're feeling old and used I'll shine on the light of my youth I shine for you the first man on my moon I long for you the first man on my moon You've known me, in all your years I've been true Held in orbit by a simple lovesick tune If I lost you I would paint all of my shadows in blue Every valley, every crater, every dune Just for you the first man on my moon I long for you the first man on my moon All for for you the first man on my moon

THROUGH THE NIGHT full moon beams whisper dreams from the stars falling softly like rain bathed in tears silent hours fall starry night a lonesome refrain solitude reigns in this midnight reverie starlight captured in a mirror shadows surround rays of lunar light a reprieve from nocturnal fears in the deepening gloom veiled in mystery a prisoner of the mystic night eclipsed by the sun silhouetted by the moon falling though time riding streams of light always left alone never understanding why you take what you want nothing to say passion words like wine to the trusting heart forgotten promises fall by the way

Fall Slow 04:16
FALL SLOW Fall slow shooting star Burn low burn hot Wherever you are Leave me with a tender kiss And the hope for a thousand more like it Our worlds part up ahead Some day maybe I'll go home with you instead Fall slow shooting star Burn low burn hot Wherever you are Take a stroll in the sunset glow Take my hand and hold it close No need to say what's on our minds We've seen the stardust in each other's eyes Fall slow shooting star Burn low burn hot Wherever you are Night by night day by day Loving miles and days away When I wake with a song Give me daydreams to hold in my arms Fall slow shooting star Burn low burn hot Wherever you are Fall slow shooting star Burn low burn hot Wherever you are

Daydreams 04:05
DAYDREAMS chasing the night by the stars fading light the rising sun kindles the flame dancing to the sound of time passing by yesterday and tomorrow are the same sunlight on the dew morning returns left over notions of sleep that wistful state of mind pursuing memories finding one to hold onto and keep awakened by the dawn eyelids like a veil peering through with crystal sight reflections of a song inspiring imagery filtering the morning light the new day breaths prisms on the wing elastic time follows through a faint refrain suspended on the air saying dreams really can come true
