Track Name: Pebble River Rd
If this life's a flowin' river,
Then we are but pebbles in the sand
Some will rise and roll amidst the water
While some, unmovable, will stand
Lovely road, precious time,
Dancing to the beat of your own mind

If my heart's a bloomin' flower,
With each flag a love I truly bear,
Then I pray this blossom forms a bower,
So my beloved may find some shelter there
Lovely road, precious time,
Never know the people you might find

If the sleep that lasts forever
Should come stealing softly o'er my eye,
Then I hope that you'll recall the pebble
Though the river that once moved it now is dry
Lovely road, precious time,
Walk into the light - it'll be fine
Track Name: Aye Me, Mine
Heart beats fast-
We step on the gas now
40, 50, 60
Make it last-
We'll take the road less traveled,
Switch off the GPS
Just like the first time that I got behind the wheel,
Oh so giddy and terrified, not knowing what to feel

Fingers crossed
That we'll make it home in one piece,
The needle keeps climbing up
Let's get lost-
Leave the whole world behind in a cloud of exhaust
And I'll open up my eyes to the open road
We are driving blind but it feels so good, feels so good

Aye me, mine

Foolish love-
It is so fickle, and flighty, and dizzy, and terrible
That's enough-
We better take the next exit
So I can get out of this
Unrealistic dream that I'm living in
I try to take control but I'm giving in

And you could make anyone fall,
You could make anyone lose their head
Oh no I'm not the first one,
I'm not the first one who wants to believe every word you've said

Aye me, mine
Track Name: Unpuzzle Me
Never really had a home, I have been a wanderin' soul
Lookin' for a sense of self, wishin' I could just let go
Of all the cares and fears that follow me
There are days that seem to swallow me whole

Always wanna do what's right, even when I don't know how
Thinkin' maybe I lost sight of what I really want right now
My heart is in a floating cage of bones,
But I can feel a heavy weight that drags this body down

I was like an open book written in a foreign tongue
You were too afraid to look, sayin' we were both too young
But every word within was yours to read
I didn't know it then but you'd translate my soul

Unpuzzle me, unpuzzle me
My mind's in a knot and my heart cannot see
So unpuzzle me, unpuzzle me
My love

Oh, life is a riddle, a secret code,
And I'm never sure which way to go,
But something in your smile makes the mystery worthwhile

Unpuzzle me, unpuzzle me
My mind's in a knot and my heart cannot see
So unpuzzle me, unpuzzle me
Track Name: Freight Train
Well you better take care when you open your heart
The more joy when you meet, the more pain when you part
Well I've never been careful when fallin' in love,
And each time I get bruised I think I've had enough,

But you hit like a freight train, Love,
Oh how you shake me up
How could I know you'd be
Something so wrong, so wrong for me?

It's so easy to say all those beautiful words
And you never imagined how much they could hurt
Well the world I envisioned was built for us both
I ate up all your lines but you swallowed your oath

You hit like a freight train, Love,
Oh how you shake me up
How could I know you'd be
Something so wrong, so wrong for me?

Well I didn't know if we'd sink or we'd swim,
But I hopelessly entertained your every whim
And you say "What's the matter? Why look you so sad?"
And I say "You're the best love that I never had"

I'm sick of this freight train love,
Oh how you shake me up
How could I know you'd be
Something so wrong, so wrong for me?

You hit like a freight train, Love,
Oh how you shake me up
How could I know you'd be
Something so wrong, so wrong for me?
Track Name: Grandmother
Awake with watchful sleepless eye,
I struggle in the dark
A quiet watcher sitting by,
She offers up a single spark:
"Tell me of your loves, your losses,
Your worries and your woes -
We all bear our crosses, darlin',
I know just how it goes."

Grandmother,
Grandmother mine,
Grandmother,
Grandmother time

You have seen so many things
You've traveled many roads
You have known the depth of pain
And you have lived with ghosts
In your eyes I see the wisdom of all you've come to learn
And in your face I see mine reflected in turn

Grandmother,
Grandmother mine,
Grandmother,
Grandmother time

Would you stay with me
And pass the time awhile?
Oh would you stay with me,
'Till the sun rises?

Grandmother,
Grandmother mine,
Grandmother,
Grandmother time
