Track Name: Move Free
These old sheets look dirty even when they're clean
I'm getting used to saying just what I mean
I'm buying time at a table and space for my dreams
And I love the way you look in those jeans

That's a bold thing to say and it's not quite my style
I'm quick to describe all the heartaches and trials
But I'm hoping that you're gonna stay for awhile
Cause I love the way you smile

So come hard, come strong, move fast and move free
There's a whole lotta world I'm aching to see
I've got places to get to and people to meet
And I hope you'll be there with me

I've got leather on my soles and a feather on my hat
I been cutting the clutter, been cutting the fat
Trying to turn my good luck into craft
And I love the way you laugh

It ain't a miracle baby, it's grit and it's gall
It's about seeing the window instead of the wall
It's about taking the chance and making the call
And getting up each time you fall

So come hard, come strong, move fast and move free
There's a whole lotta world I'm aching to see
I've got places to get to and people to meet
And I hope you'll be there with me.
Track Name: Dust Still on My Boots
I watched the sunset from my window in the sky
Flying farther away from Telluride
Spent my solstice trying to get back home to you
I landed in Manhattan with dust still on my boots

Well the weather was perfect
Yeah the weather was so fine
Saw the snow on the mountains
Felt the heat of summertime
Watched a waterfall from across a valley wide
And laid down on the ground
to be restored by that starry night

I watched the sunset from my window in the sky
Flying farther away from Telluride
Spent my solstice trying to get back home to you
I landed in Manhattan with dust still on my boots

Well the band played on
And blew my soul away
Set my feet a-dancin
In the most peculiar way
And it crossed my mind
That maybe I should stay
But I had to come home
So we could go back some day

Well babe you know I love my city life
And if you asked me now to leave it I'd decline
But I'm making plans for us somewhere down the line
Gonna get to Colorado
Gonna go to Telluride

We'll watch the sunset from that little mountain town
See the aspen trees and the waterfall tumbling down
Spend our solstice getting closer to the truth
We'll get back to Manhattan,
Wipe the dust off of our boots

Yeah, we'll get back to Manhattan,
Wipe the dust off of our boots.
Track Name: Please Don't Take Me to Kentucky
Please don't take me to Kentucky
I haven't been there since I was a child
When I saw my daddy sitting in the jailhouse
He waved at me and I stood there and smiled

My ma told me he's working in Kentucky
Honey, that's why daddy's not around
He'll be home soon, but for now we go and visit
And remember, dear to keep our voices down

Too young to know the difference
Too sweet to think of crime
Too pure to know my daddy
Was really serving time
Too late to make it better
It's left a load here on my mind
So I'd rather not pass that old state line

Please don't take me to Kentucky
I piece this thing together all the time
I've got memories that send my head a-reelin'
As I separate what happened from the lie

Too young to know the difference
Too sweet to think of crime
Too pure to know my daddy
Was really serving time
Too late to make it better
It's left a load here on my mind
So I'd rather not pass that old state line

Please don't take me to Kentucky
It's not a place I wanna talk about
So if you're trying to drive us through Kentucky
I'm begging you please take another route
I'm begging you please find another route.
Track Name: When You Wake
I'm no lantern in the dark
I'm a landscape bleak and stark
I will not say yes
I'll take your hands and place them on my dress

I'm no flower in a vase
I am both the leather and the lace
I will not say no
And I'll only go the way I want to go

But I want to be your goddess when you wake
Want to be the one to make you stop and pray
And I want to be your goddess in the sun
The one you turn to when the day's begun

I'm no porcelain doll
I'm the slightest southern drawl
I cannot say yes
And I'll keep my hand hid under my vest

I'm no daddy's girl
I am both the oyster and the pearl
I cannot say please
I'll hold you close and help you breath

And I want to be your goddess when you wake
Want to be the one to make you stop and pray
And I want to be your goddess in the sun
The one you turn to when the day's begun

There's a light on in the kitchen
And you don't know what you're missing
Cause you keep your head all buried in your plans
I was once told love means walking hand in hand

And I want to be your goddess when you wake
Want to be the one to make you stop and pray
And I want to be your goddess when you wake
Want to be the one you can't afford to break.
Track Name: Good Luck and Goodbye
Another late Tuesday night
Hiding after the stage lights
At a bar in the east
I should be asleep
But I'm feeling so lonesome tonight

There's a woman I've seen here before
I know she's seen me too
She's wanton and she's old
I'm sitting all alone
Last week I was sitting with you

You made no promise
I made no reply
They don't make a difference
The things I left unsaid
I wish you good luck and goodbye

All the men try to lock eyes with mine
They're thinking I might be the kind
If I could I would glare
But I hide behind my hair
And take another glance at the time

In defiance I ate a good meal
My will defeating how I feel
I've got no appetite for surrender or spite
Deprivation is no way to heal

You made no promise
I made no reply
They don't make a difference
The things I left unsaid
I wish you good luck and goodbye

Did they make a difference
The things I left unsaid
I guess I'm just too scared to fight.
Track Name: Silhouettes and Sunsets
Oh I left before I knew that I was leaving
Packed my bags before I knew where I would go
Won't take it back cause it started up my healing
And led me to see the through line in my road

Can you hear my verses clear across the country?
Through the snowstorm and the sunshine and the rain
As I travel looking for my next adventure
And you get caught up in your bookshelves once again

How do your days pass?
Do they flow together seamless as a song?
Or are they patched and stitched
Some sharp and others faded
Like a quilt who knows that everything belongs

Call me coward, call me selfish, call me stupid
I've got feelings that I can't afford to fight
I feel your silent stroke of turning back the pages
As my candle burns at both ends through the night

And you've got my love all tied up in your bedroom
Oh I've told you once and I'll tell you again
I'm not scared, I'm just saving up my body
So I'll be clean when I can finally let you in

Oh I left before I knew that I was leaving
Packed my bags before I knew where I would go
Won't take it back cause it started up my healing
And led me to see the through line in my road

Can you hear my verses clear across the country?
Through the snowstorm and the sunshine and the rain
As I travel looking for my next adventure
And you get caught up in your bookshelves once again

How do your days pass?
Do they flow together seamless as a song?
Or are they patched and stitched
Some sharp and others faded
Like a quilt who knows that everything belongs

There's so much that I don't know about your life dear
The things you say and who you say them to
Hope you reserve some of your words just for the times when
You've got silhouettes and sunsets in your view

Hope you reserve some of your words just for the times when
You've got silhouettes and sunsets in your view.
