She Moves 01:46
I like the way she walks. I like the way she talks. I like the way she moves when she moves like she does. I like her long black hair. I like her sunset stares. I like the way she moves when she moves like she does. I like that no one really knows her. I like the way the wind it blows her. I like the way she moves when she moves like she does. I wish I’de never ever seen you. I know I never could of dreamed you. But when she moves, ahh she moves, when she moves, she moves like she does…

Is there someone else you could call? I can’t take this when you’re falling. You call me on the phone. To tell me you’re alone. Should I still care? Girl you left me alone out there. Now we’re nowhere. Too tired now to try. Too tired now to cry. But I still cry… I remember when we met. You were lovely soaking wet. Under Western skies. You’re probably there tonight. Breaking someone new. Tearing them in two. But you don’t have the heart. To never let it start. Oh I wish I’d never seen you Too tired now to try. Too tired now to cry. But I still cry… And girl the deepest cut of all. Is you don’t know how hard we fall. For your certain kind of light. You’re probably there tonight. Breaking someone new. Tearing them in two. You just smile and play. Like it’s any other day. Of I wish I’d never seen you. Too tired now to try. Too tired now to cry. But I still cry…

Unrequited love is so cruel. I’m still here waiting. A hard headed fool. There’s really nothing left to do. The heart you don’t I've given to you. Release me. From the memories. Heaven help me. She don’t see me. I was ready to burn my life down. Had you wanted me around. When we said our last goodbye. Never thought a man should cry. Now I’m fading. Washed in tears. Losing you to your better years. Release me. From the memories. Heaven help me. She don’t want me. Unrequited love is so cruel…

So Lovely 03:28
One of these days I’m gonna track you down. When maybe we’re older and a little round. All these years later I still hear your sounds. Hear your sounds. And you’re so lovely. You’re so lovely… My calls always end before they really start. You pretty kryptonite to my heart. Say hello once a year then fall apart. Fall apart. And you’re so lovely. You’re so lovely… Maybe you’ll love me when we're old and alone. When all of your prettier options are gone. You never knew that you were always home. Always home. And you’re so lovely. You’re so lovely…

Elliot 02:01
Oh Elliot, are you resting now? Were the light too bright? Did it hurt your eyes? Did they promise you? More than they would ever do? Did they feed your doubt? Then turn you out? And now it’s quiet time I’m sorry that the smoke got in your eyes Oh Elliot, what did she do to you? Did she take your heart? Play the baby card? Did she promise you? More than she could ever do? Did she feed your doubt? And then turn you out? Now it’s quiet time I’m sorry that the smoke got in your eyes…

Authentic 02:12
Yeah this ain’t no folk show. And it ain’t no disco. It’s just another dig at authentic. Just another dig. So come on get happy. Don’t waste your time. On the disappointments that’ll beat you every time. And bleed you ‘til you’re dry. Yeah, I’m not cool enough. Hip enough. Tattooed enough. Indie enough for you… And I see your faces. In your phones all day. You come right up to me. Not a single word to say. Little girl, you’re afraid to play. Yeah I’m not young enough. Rich enough. Hip enough. Vinyl enough for you… Yeah this ain’t no disco. And it ain’t no folk show. It’s just another dig at authentic. Just another dig. So come on get happy. Don’t wait in line. With the fashion victims that’ll take up all your time. And bleed you ‘til you’re dry…

That Girl 04:01
Say you don’t love me anymore Say you don’t love me anymore Swear I’ll believe it when you walk out the door Say you don’t love me anymore Where’s your sisters now? Where’s your poppa now? You burned all his ranches and stole my name So where’s your family now? Momma she’s rollin’ in her grave Momma she’s rollin’ in her grave Remember that young girl, with the frilly white dresses? That girl don’t live here anymore That girl don’t live here anymore
