Track Name: Brooklyn Lullaby
Well it was not for nothing that we stayed up through the night
Watching our breath unfold before the colors of the sky
And our rooms are small but our hearts know how to fly
We are the kinds and the queens tonight

The stars are calling we’re softly falling
Through subway stations and destinations
Singing a Brooklyn lullaby

We watch the sun come up we watch the moon go down
You and me my friend we run this town around
We are nighttime wandering chemical machines
Floating in and out of bars falling in and out of dreams

We love in circles until we die
Doing the things that lift us high
It’s a Brooklyn lullaby

And we’re dancing under streetlights, under streetlights
Running with the moonlight, with the moonlight
We love like crazy we kiss the sky
We sing a Brooklyn lullaby
It’s a Brooklyn lullaby
Track Name: Pure of Heart
When I was a boy mom and dad would pack the car
And we’d drive across the country and sleep under the stars
And grandma would be waiting for us on the other side
With a love that kept on living even long after she died

We played with driftwood in the sand
Love of water and love of land

And we threw rocks at the sun and we laid our beds in dirt
And some years were still to pass before our hearts were made to hurt
But there was no reason to be afraid that the promises we made
Would not be realized some day before we laid down in our graves

Wide eyed waiting for life to start
Clean of hand and pure of heart

I am become grey and memories they fade
Into the bluest water back to the sweetest place

And we swore that we would never part
Clean of hand and pure of heart
Track Name: Good as Gone
Pack your bags pack them light
Nobody’s gonna change your mind tonight
Hurry down the old soft stairs
Anything you left better leave it there

Well I can see it play it out in my mind
You could leave your tired job behind
Pedal to the floor and we’re good as gone

When you feel you’re ready you can call me on the phone
We’ll drive this car away and we’ll be good as gone
Tell me when you’re ready and I’ll play your favorite song
And we’ll drive into the night and we’ll be good as gone

Were you ever young at heart
Did you every steal away
Into the corner of a stranger’s heart
Like a rebel when the lights go dark

But night turns to day and leaves fall like rain
And four seasons come and go again

When you feel you’re ready you can call me on the phone
We’ll drive this car away until we’re good as gone
Tell me when you’re ready and I’ll play your favorite song
And we’ll drive into the night and we’ll be good as gone
Track Name: Ring Like Silver
Had a dream that you were leaving didn’t want you to go
Tried to tell you that I’m sorry I’m not easy I know

Couldn’t say it out loud
The words stuck inside my heart now
When are you coming home

I know the actors I know the drummer in the band
Wear my heart where you can see it
carry my trouble in my hand

But at the end of it all
Even the cool kids ride alone
When are you coming home

Cause I am never gonna ring like silver
And I am never gonna shine like gold
But I will turn myself inside out and try to come around
When are you coming home

Walk by yourself under the light of the moon
Reminiscing about someone that you thought you knew
Only thing I know now is I dropped out and hurt you somehow
When are you coming home
Track Name: Heart Undone
And I step into the street with an old coat on
Got nowhere to go but something to run from
Mother’s back home singing old time songs
I am going back there before too long

Don’t you wait for a train that is never gonna come
And don’t you love with a heart, with your heart undone

Girl is at the bar with a red dress on
Hiding from someone did her wrong
And I would like to help but I don’t know how
And she would like to run but she is stuck here now

Don’t you wait for a train that is never gonna come
And don’t you love with a heart, with your heart undone

And you walk her to her building and you hold her at the stairs
She will make you cry but you don’t care
A cold rain falls on a loser’s love
And a good one is gone bad blood

And your hand lies heavy upon the wheel
And you drive all night so that you can feel
Don’t you wait for a train that is never gonna come
And don’t you love with a heart, with your heart come undone
Track Name: When the Moon is Right
Well I’m flying over Idaho
I’m thinking on the words I should have said
And I’m thinking on the sweet way that you lay your head

And I wish I was a light below
Cause I know I would be better then
But this aero plane jumps and turns into my skin

But I’ll show you my light
I’ll show you my light
When the moon is right

I’m looking down on city lights
And I’m thinking how you know me in my heart
All the things that I want to tell you but where do I start

So I’m flying over Idaho
And I’m thinking I might meet the angel high
As this aero plane comes crashing into my mind

But I’ll show you my light
I’ll show you my light
When the moon is right
Track Name: Good Times We Had
Well I guess I knew you pretty well back when
We drank the blood red sun from the rooftops we climbed on
And it warmed our souls from where we stood
Overlooking our neighborhood

And my legs grow weak when I think about you now
And my heart grows heavy when I consider how
You blessed my heart with the good times that we had
They were good times that we had

And when I had nothing you invited me to stay
On some old mattress someone left in the alleyway
And the paint was pealing and the lights were dim
And we were happy we were happy then

And I find myself there when I think about you now
But the place seems different foreign to me now
You blessed my heart with the good times that we had
They were good times that we had

From the Bowery on a subway train
Back to Brooklyn with my heart worn thin
To all my brothers and to all my kin
I count my stars for the times we were in

And my legs grow weak when I think about you now
And my heart grows heavy when I consider how
You blessed my heart with the good times that we had
They were good times that we had
Track Name: Christmas Sky
Oh father fill your glass again
For these days are far and few
And oh mother sing your song again
And we’ll sing it loud and true
Oh sister wear your golden ring
My brother by your side
Come gather ‘round this love again
Beneath a Christmas sky
Track Name: Sweetest Love
I’ve got a sweet imagination dreaming I am still by you
You’ve got a beautiful position seeing the world the way you do
Sometimes I’m lost without you all my blood is blue
My heart it wanders back to sweet things you would do

If I could buy a ticket for an aeroplane
If I could fly to where you are
I would come running back to you
Running back into your arms

Where the sun’s gonna always shine
You’ll always be the sweetest love of mine
The rain’s gonna always fall
And I’m always gonna be there when you call

I remember sunny days I recall your easy ways
The sand upon our feet the ferry dock where we would meet
If I could go back to another place in time
If you could see your way back here but I’m
Head in the clouds feet upon the ground
Trying to find a way back home

Where the sun’s gonna always shine
You’ll always be the sweetest love of mine
The rain’s gonna always fall
And I’m always gonna be there when you call
