Track Name: One of Two
Pick me up, up
From this filthy ground
Give me a little love
Lord knows I need it now

From a tiny hand
I fell suddenly
Before I even landed
I had drifted off to sea

I will move beneath the air
And I'll miss being in a pair
And I'll hope through and through
One day I'll be one of two

As my woolen threads
Turn hard with ice and salt
I dream of my only friend
And how his sadness is all my fault

I won't know how far I've traveled
When I wash up on your shore
Though I may be a bit unraveled
Please open up your door

I will move beneath the air
And I'll miss being in a pair
And I'll hope through and through
One day I'll be one of two
One of two, one of two...

Smile, or even laugh
When you pick me up from the street
And give me back my other half
Mismatched just for me
Mismatched for me, mismatched for me
Mismatched for me, mismatched
Perfectly to me
Track Name: Not Gonna Wait
I long, I long for a time
That's frozen in black and white
A country that's lost its shine
Somewhere in the darkness of night

But I'm still holding on
Holding on tight

Bob, Bob and Suze
Had something, something to say
The poet, the poet had his muse
But now that dog has had its day

And we have got to find our own way
Yes we have got to find our own way

Why don't we stay up all night
Howling by the firelight?
The stars fall down and the sun comes up
This life is short, so fill your cup
Up, up, up, up

The tide, the tide's gotta change
But the moon, the moon is lazy
Looking for someone to blame
Well it makes things just a little bit hazy

And I'm not gonna wait for someone to save me
No I'm not gonna wait for someone to save me
No I'm not gonna wait for someone to save me
Track Name: Walk With Me
Yesterday I saw you on the street
But for some reason my eyes you wouldn't meet
Maybe you were busy looking at the ground
That's so unsound beneath your little feet

Instead of going on my merry way
Thought I'd come over to you darling, and say
Say...

I just wanna know dear where you're going
'Cause Lord, I think I know from where you've come
Hey, let's not pretend we don't both be knowing
The years ain't slowing down
You're a little lonely
So walk with me
Baby, walk with me

Knowing me I couldn't get up the nerve
And so I let you swagger, swing on round the curve
Curling up my collar against the chill
That I could still feel as I wondered still
Still..

I just wanna know dear where you're going
'Cause Lord, I think I know from where you've come
Hey, let's not pretend we don't both be knowing
The years ain't slowing down
You're a little lonely
So walk with me
Baby, walk with me

Oh, turned out that cold wind was my good friend
As it was pushing, pulling me to the sidewalk's end
And stepping down I lifted up my head
And there you stood, and you said

I just wanna know dear where you're going
'Cause Lord, I think I know from where you've come
Hey, let's not pretend we don't both be knowing
The years ain't slowing down
We won't be lonely now
Oooh...
Not lonely now, not lonely now
Track Name: Dogtown
Let's go walk to the trees
And then we'll see what's going on
What's glowing, aw
Smoke, drink, do what you please
We're all just knowing that
The wind keeps blowing

I've never made so much noise
As when I behaved like one of our own lost boys

Oh Dogtown, take me home
Going out or coming in
'Cause even if the barkeep's gone
We've still got the gin

Sit down under the stars
And move your feet through yellow leaves
Through lovers and thieves
Who knows where's too far
We're all just believing
In what we're seeing

I've never felt so alone
As when I arrived in a place that I once called home

Oh Dogtown, take me in
Through the longest night
When you're in the bed of sin
It always feels all right
It always feels all right

Let's go walk to the sea
And then we'll feel what's going on
What's glowing, aw
Who knows who we'll be
The tide just keeps on flowing without you or me...

Dogtown, take me home
Going out or coming in
Even if, even if the barkeep's gone

Oh, I said, Dogtown, take me home
Going out or coming in
'Cause even if the barkeep's gone...
