Track Name: Daniel Johnston (Dear Laurie)
You’re the one who got away
On just another summer’s day
Were you thinking of me
Did I cross your mind?

Well you’re smile’s on these tapes
That are playing through my brain
Oh I’m thinking of you
You’re lost in my mind

Dear Laurie
Dear Laurie
Dear Laurie did you know
It was all for you

We’re a plane in the sky
Falling into a long dive
Will it end down there
Or will we survive?

Oh I think we’ve hit the ground
Darling did we make a sound?
Cause I can’t hear you
You jumped out, parachuted down

Dear Laurie
Dear Laurie
Dear Laurie did you know
It was all for you

Well the Devil’s by my side
But all I can do is cry
He’s in love with you
But he’s running out of time

So I’ll stand on my own
Until you come back home
Dear Laurie
It was all for you
Track Name: Mountain
I’ve been the one, who couldn’t be sure
Bending over backwards just to insure
That I’d be a thorn in the side of a mountain
Screaming out why don’t you move?
But that mountain’s got something to prove
And I’m pushed aside
I’m back where I started

Well I’ve been the one, to forlone faith
Said nothing will come from fighting my fate
So I listened to fools and I gave into fear now I’m
Stuck out here in the cold, winds of apathy pick at my bones
They’ve pulled me apart
I’m back where I started

Ooooooooooh
Ooooooooooh

Could I be the one, who changes his ways
Not be alone, pushing everyone away
Say I’m sorry my friends, it’s not been a good year
But I’m ready at last to come home
Forgive me this time, I won’t go
Take me back in
And help me begin again

Ooooooooooh
Ooooooooooh
Ooooooooooh
If I believe there’s something else, I have to build it for myself
Face the front but fear the past, nothing then was made to last
Oh I believe there’s something else, and I will build it for myself
Face the front and leave the past, nothing then will ever last
Track Name: The Suburban Cowboy's Song
When I feel the winds that blow up from the south
I get to thinking it’s time to leave this town
Pack all my bags say my goodbyes
With heavy feet and drawn out sigh

Cause if I walk away I walk alone
I’d leave behind everything I know
But something bout this place just don’t feel right
I always get restless round here at night

Left always to roam
Nowhere to call home
But it’s my own damn fault
You see, my heart is drawn, always to leave
My bones can’t stand, to let me be

So let the winds carry me away
Maybe I’ll hold this insanity at bay
Cause there’s freedom from myself out on the road
My body don’t know it’s just an ever changing home

Left always to roam
Nowhere to call home
But it’s my own damn fault
You see, my heart is drawn, always to leave
My bones can’t stand, to let me be

Ooooooooh
Ooooooooh
Ooooooooh

Left always to roam
Nowhere to call home
But it’s my own damn fault
You see, my heart is drawn, always to leave
My bones can’t stand, to let me be
Track Name: Stay
His eyes meet her blank stare
One look from falling apart
And I just wonder where
They've put each other's hearts

Cuz there was a time
They gave it all away
Yours becomes mine
Now its please love won't you stay

Stay
Stay
Stay

He reached for your hand
But took your heart instead
Together made plans
Held onto everything he said

But he left you behind
And words have a way
Of becoming a bind
Oh please my love can't you stay

Stay
Stay
Stay

A touch imprinted your skin
Empty without a hand
But no one else's fits in
Sometimes things don't go how you planned

Mmm
Mmm
Mmm

Stay
Stay
Stay
Track Name: Safe and Sound
The sky looks a little dark today
I could be sad but I think I’ll say
That if the clouds are looking dark today
Let it slow my life down

Cuz I’ve come to find it’ll make it right
While the world flies by at the speed of light
It gets so hard but I always try and slow my life down

Don’t fall asleep to the crazy sounds of the world around you
Stay awake or it’ll take what makes you true
I think I’ve finally found that Ill never be safe or sound
Til I slow my life down

And I get so scared that I’ll lose control
Get caught in the current and never know
I know I’m scared that I’ll lose control
Cuz goin’ through the motions cant save my soul

And who am I to criticize
A world that wasn’t made with me in mind?
But I see what it does in the people’s eyes
Goin’ through the motions doesn’t save their souls

Don’t fall asleep to the crazy sounds of the world around you
Stay awake or it’ll take what makes you true
I think I’ve finally found that Ill never be safe or sound
Til I slow my life down

So when the night comes I’ll get a guitar
Soothe my pain out under the stars
When the night comes Ill get my guitar
And slow my life down

Cuz I’ve come to find that’ll make it right
While the world flies by at the speed of light
Oh this is the way to get it right
And slow my life down
Track Name: The Ballad of Ethan Gibbs
I watched the light die down by the riverside
Cold black water rests softly by my side

It was just like a dream that I have every night
Where I stop runnin' they track me down, the end of my life

Never thought I'd lose you to another man
In a violent struggle for the lust in his head

You were just like a dream that I had every night
So I cut him down to send you home
Ran for my life

Can you see me for what I am?
Everything that I touch turns blood red

The second one was easy, he'd wronged me in the past
The third one I caught stealing, just the next to cross my path

So now every night another must die
For what they've done they pay their price until I'm satisfied

Can you see me for what I am?
Everything that I touch turns blood red
Everything that I touch turns blood red

Can you see me for what I am?
Everything that I touch turns blood red
Everything that I touch turns blood red
Everything that I touch turns blood red
Track Name: Song About Love
I could lay with you all night
Bathed in starlight
And still feel humble

And if you were parted from me
By storm wind and sea
My heart would recognize yours

And I'd whisper softly in your ear
The lies you need to hear
And swear that it's the truth

But my words bounce right off your skin
I wish that they'd sink in
That you would just listen
And how do you sing a song about love
To someone who's had enough?
How do you sing about love?

It seems to me it's hard for you to tell
Just how hard I fell
To land within your arms

I thought it'd be a safer place to stay
You'd keep my doubts at bay
But they've overcome you

But my words bounce right off your skin
I wish that they'd sink in
That you would just listen
And how do you sing a song about love
To someone who's had enough?
How do you sing about love?

Oooooh
Aaaaah

But my words bounce right off your skin
I know they could sink in
If you would just listen
Oh, and when you've had enough
I'll still be full of songs
And sing you one about love
