Track Name: 1 mile ahead
In the sea i'm swimming in i dive deep in the water
or a mind i'm fishing in
trying to find a thought to grab on or a ship passing over
or a dream down deep within
if i go a little further straight ahead not round the bend
just might find where i fit in
i'm alive and dreaming in the rain or in the snow
drinking sunlight with no shadows

1 mile ahead
1 mile ahead

In the dream i'm dreaming in with a face like a pillow
piecing everything broken
in a mind thats never resting a big hand seems is holding
about every direction
so i pick the road of life a smile on all that breathes
with a song tangled in leaves
reach up to grab a hand my arm just kept going
cause it's you where i begin

1 mile ahead
1 mile ahead
Track Name: Piece of me
Give somebody, a little ol piece of me
give somebody a little ol piece of me
a little piece of the devil
so she'd come running back to me

i'm lookin high but i sure ain't running wild
i'm looking high but i sure ain't running wild
when that little girl caught me
she took everything she found

she's here with me, we're just goin on down the road
she's here with me, we're just going on down the road
since she said she loves me
man, nowheres to far to go

she don't have a halo, and i don't have a crown
she don't have a halo, and i don't have a crown
but i know that i'll love her til they put me in the ground
yeah, i know that i'll love her til they put me in the ground
Track Name: Route 56
Packing up my fiddle for a stopm up in the hills
sweet guitars and campfires old man's sippin still
push my foot down harder to make them miles roll by
headen out to Bedford where the mountains meet the sky

No train blowin black smoke
clean air out in the sticks
good times with good folks
30 miles down 56

Big bass swimmin down low easy as you please
walking down on Main St, smells of cooking on the breeze
i once met a sweet girl with a smile in her eye
Lord know them back-hills girls sure can make you smile

No train blowin black smoke
clean sir out in the sticks
good times with good folks
30 miles down 56
Track Name: Me and my Dad
Thought i heard a voice i knew sing a familar tune
somewhere in my own mind
so i listen to those words but when i closed my eyes
seems like i froze up inside
thought i saw a shadow move when i called out a name
think i'l stay here if its all the same

Listen boy, you don't know
just how far i'll go
to help you learn to let go
when it's your time
put your hand in mine
I'll carry you to the sky

Thought i heard a kind word spoken in a voice i once knew rub my eyes to see if it was true
thought i felt a warm hand touching dust strings my heart
that sweet song tore me all apart
thought i saw myself so clear but it was all a dream
seems that all it was was always me

Listen boy, you don't know
just how far i'll go
to help you learn to let go
when it's your time
put your hand in mine
i'll carry you to the sky
Track Name: Drifting in
I am home in my mind, where i'm safe
but my dreams will still find a way, to haunt me
while my heart goes off to sleep

Now i'm drifting in
deeper and deeper my friend
where the walls aren't closing in
softer and wider within

Free is the music inside me soothes
when no tune is heard or played
melodys to make you sway

Now i'm drifting in
deeper and deeper my friend
where ths walls aren't closing in
softer and wider within
Track Name: This while
You tell me to settle down, it's over now
good air in, bad is gone, but won't unravel
i guess the peace inside won't come easy
still the hurt of change has me bleeding

lay down your load
why carry it home
got a ways to go
this while is over now
this while is over now

You carried my angry word in your heart
still it's not so bad to be broken
and still you smile guess you see the clouds
it seems somewhere in me it's always raining

lay down the load
why carry it home
got a ways to go
this while is over now
this while is over now

i know what said and done
is said and done
i know it's said and done
i know it's said and done
Track Name: Sweater weather
Sunday morning sunshines done on me
i was struttin and what did i see
just the way the sun set off her smile
i said "hey girl, you wanna come get down"

wanna wear my sweater
i can wear your smile
then i sweat her
as we layed on the clouds

sun was setting we been gone all day
lit a candle so i could see your face
slide on over while your lovelight is still on
puff that cloud cause we got all night long

wanna wear my sweater
i can wear your smile
then i sweat her
as we layed on the clouds

thats the way that we got down
thats the way that we get down
Track Name: House with no doors
Put my head down and go
on and on with no end
got some mountains to move
don't wanna use my hands
scream "get out of my way"
'til that got me nowhere
so i rattled my cage
pushed back all my fear

scream "let me in
I want more"
how do i get in
house with no doors

Put my foot down and stop
then i am overcome
everything that follows me
just got a leg up
tied down and ready to blow
but it just won't hurt enough
when the hand that help and feeds
is killing you with love

scream "let me in
I want more"
how do i get in
house with no doors
