Track Name: Desdemona
Oh woman please be true

I’m not a man that reads right through

An unfaithful heart

With pretty words that tear my world apart


Don’t lie to me tonight

We just might not see the light

Don’t lie to me tonight

I don’t wanna, I don’t wanna fight

(Chorus)

Desdemona, turn the lights off

Tell me it’s nothing, tell me it’s nothing

That I can’t bear

Desdemona, turn the lights off

Tell me it’s nothing, tell me it’s nothing

That I can’t bear


Oh woman please be true

If I’m right, then I’ve wronged you

Oh Lord what have I done?

There she goes, her eyes are closed and gone. (Chorus)
Track Name: Two Stupid Kids
Find a girl, treat her right stay awake, laugh all night

oh you and me, me and you


Hold her hand, don’t let go and if you love her, let her know

oh you and me, me and you


And if you’re feeling kind of scared

just remember why

(Chorus)

Two stupid kids with our hearts on fire

We lost control as the flames got higher

Oh we’re carried away with a burning desire

Two stupid kids with our hearts on fire.



I never thought this would be me one plus one and now there’s three

oh you and me, me and you


All our friends went out tonight I stayed in cause money’s too tight

oh you and me, me and you


And if you’re feeling kind of scared

just remember why

(Chorus)
Track Name: Let Me Down Easy
The top drawers are empty I don’t have enough

things to replace all of your stuff.


Nothing’s the same but the memories remain

haunting the closets there’s a ghost in my brain.

(Pre-chorus)

In a house that’s divided there’s no use in fighting when

you’re already down on your knees

(Chorus)

So please, be gentle with me you’re holding my heart

just let it down easy


I wait for your phone call or a letter to come

but you must have found yourself a new someone.

And maybe you like how she does her hair

give it awhile you just won’t care

(Pre-chorus)


(Chorus 2x)
Track Name: See It Through
There will be far more tears tonight than she has cried in her whole life

she calls her dad and tells him everything’s alright but it’s all a lie


Starts to stay at his friend’s place they laugh say he’ll forget her face

but overnight as he starts to close his eyes he sees her smile

(Chorus)

Why do we choose not to love the right one

why don’t we choose the love that’s always enough

life could be easy for me, life could be easy for you

why don’t we, ever see it through.


Fear that forces out the words

all the hopes and dreams gone left heard

it’s better not to let themselves get hurt this time

and they’re telling lies

(Chorus)

I’m tired of being scared of loving you

I’m tired of being scared of something new


Life could be easy for me

Life could be easy for you

Why don’t we ever see it through



(Chorus)
Track Name: Dink's Song
If I had wings like Noah's dove

I'd fly the river to the one I love

Fare thee well, my honey, fare thee well


I had a man who was long and tall

Moved his body like a cannon ball

Fare thee well, my honey, fare thee well


Remember one evening, it was pouring' rain

And in my heart, I felt an achin' pain

Fare thee well, my honey, fare thee well


Muddy river runs muddy 'n' wild

You can't care the bloody for my unborn child

Fare thee well, my honey, fare thee well


One of these mornings it won’t be long

You’ll call my name and I’ll be gone

Fare thee well, my honey, fare thee well
