Track Name: Whiskey & Burn Barrels
On the second to longest night of the year
Drunk on old laughter and American beer
You slapped on my shoulder my sunburnt flesh
Crispy from the stars that were reaching for breath

CHORUS:
Whiskey and burn barrels under an almost full moon
In a backyard in Northern California
Singing old songs of heartbreak and booze
Fills up our nights off from workin'

We sing in off time we sing out of tune
Never knowing the answer
But we've got that old country tune
That makes sure we keep dancing

Whiskey and burn barrels under an almost full moon
In a backyard in Northern California
Singing old songs of heartbreak and booze
Fills up our nights off from workin'

Fern forms a circle and our hands form a song
Love comes on like thunder
Amber's got whiskey she's passing it round
Dust kicks up this adventure

Whiskey and burn barrels under an almost full moon
In a backyard in Northern California
Singing old songs of heartbreak and booze
Fills up our nights off from workin'

Roachie made cake
Maggie sang lead
Sailor plucked out a sad tune
But under this old dusty north Oakland sky
We can laugh crazy with that old fool moon

Whiskey and burn barrels under an almost full moon
In a backyard in Northern California
Singing old songs of heartbreak and booze
Fills up our nights off from workin'
Track Name: Fog and Roses
I drive across bridges
I hop up on trains
Just to get close to you
We've shared all our secrets
Time and again
Now what is there to do

It's the cost
Of a day of fog and roses
And we're gone
On a ship that never finds land

Cuz we're friends that keep trying to come together.
We’re friends that know how to love.
And we keep finding the songs together
No matter how push comes to shove

Through letters and phone calls
Coffeeshops and bars
We always make a way
To stitch up the roads
That have drawn us apart
We’re always singing again

You held me one time
So close to your heart
And I just pulled away
I never have learned
How to make that fresh start
And I never remember to stay

Take me back home
In your beat up Chevette
Take me back home to our time
It’s further to go
And harder to find
Maybe it’s all in our minds

Under the stars in a forest of pine there was no way to get lost
Except in your words, the fire, the wine
Who ever could know the cost
Track Name: Lansing
Walking long on shaded trees
You laughed and fell and skinned your knee
A child's hurt on a woman's frame
You marked that town with flesh that day
And in the park and on the
We played those games with songs to live

Only one night
And you went away
One night
And no one stays

You traveled north to find our fun
I'd run away and kidnapped the sun
We drove around on Cedar Street
We smoked and talked of our doomed fate
Down by the river with factories large
I saw your dreams breaking your heart

When you passed out on the floor
I knew it wasn't our time no more
I got some help and I dragged you home
Our time was past our time was now
Our time could run circles around

But times change and I'm running back
I find you here and there alike
I fall in love when'er you laugh
We're falling down it's in our grasp
So on the bridge and in the park
We learned to find us in the dark

One night
Then you went away
One night
And no one stays
