Original Release

Huntington Beach
Written and recorded in a few hours in Pennsylvannia

Huntington beach
She said she'd never seen
Well he'd been there before
Allthough it was in a dream

She never knew where she was
Unless she'd been there before

Well she got up late
But felt she couldnt wait
And he waited till dawn
When the lights flickered on
The car was dead
So they took the road instead

She never knew where she was
Unless she'd been there before

Tylor Durand: Vocal / Electric guitar / Bass / Drums / Tamborine

There's Love In This World
Paris - March 1998 - 3am

Well there's love in this world
But none of its for me
And the dreams in this world
They don't come for free

Reachin' through the night
The recess of the light

Well the times have been changed
I'll reconcile my thoughts
And the ones that remain
They're all weary and withdrawn

In the cold river's rain
We're wide open again

Tylor Durand: Vocal / Acoustic guitar / Electric / Guitar / Bass / Drums / Tamborine / Shaker

Watershed
An extremely hot summer day at King of Beef

Well I got no secrets
And I got no regrets
I'm fallin' through the floor
Can you help me out

Can we talk by the watershed
I'm lookin' like a train wreck
You've got no time
To help me out

Well it looks like it happened once again

Well we had some highs
And we had some lows
But most of all it reminds me of you
Well you got no regrets
About the things you might have said
Well its ok I'm not too bummed out

Well it looks like it's happening again

Tylor Durand: Vocal / Acoustic guitar / Electric guitar / Bass / Drums / Tamborine
Alexis Grossman: Harmonica


The Man Who Works With His Hands
Flood lights and Justin on the studio floor

Well he's gettin' up early
With a cup of coffee
He's got no reason
He's got no glory

He's the man who works with his hands

Haulin' boxes in the mornin'
Loadin' crates in the evenin'
Washin' windows in the daytime
He's got no time to be sidelined

He's the man who works with his hands

When he works alittle overtime
He spends his money on a bottle of wine
Forgets about the weekday
Leaves his life of work behind

He's the man who works with his hands

Tylor Durand: Vocal / Electric guitar / Drums / Banjo / Hammer and pot / Cardboard box
Justin Ferren: Electric guitar / Saw and wood


Spring Ends Today
Written in 1996

It's been that type of day
You get up and walk away
But you can't even
If you tried
Standin' at the door
Who is it for

You lose again
We never win

It looks like spring
Will end again
Nothin' much matters
Nobody wins

You lose again
We never win

Well most of the time
We bid hello
But then we say
Goodbye

Tylor Durand: Vocal / Acoustic guitar / Electric guitar / Bass / Drums

This Dream I Have
North Georgia mountains Spring 2000

In the middle of the night
When I'm thinkin' bout you
Well I know it'll be alright
If i could only break through

To this dream I have every night
Bout lovin' you

When the clock strikes 5
And my workday is done
I go home every night
And I'm hopin' that you'll come

To this dream I have every night
This dream I have most every night
Bout lovin' you

When I turn out the light
And the river runs through
I crawl into my bed
Hopin' to find you

And this dream i have every night
Yes this dream i have

Bout lovin' you

Tylor Durand: Vocal / Electric guitar / Bass / Drums

Not Far From Here
New Hampshire, fall 2000 - Original version recorded by Working Mans Trio

Somewhere not far from here
The sun's gonna shine in yer eyes
Everything will be clear

Not far from here

Sometime not far from now
You'll know just where to go
Everything will fall away

Not far from now

Will you let the days go by
Will you travel in the middle of the night

Someone said to you
Never take the same road again
Always travel somewhere new

Not far fom now

Tylor Durand: Vocal / Acoustic guitar / Electric guitar / Double bass / Drums

Dead Man's Bell
The King of Beef Sound

Down under the curve
I'm ringin' my bell
People don't know
I'm alive and well

Lyin' down low
Under this heap
Noone hears me
I'm covered by sleep

I'm gonna pull a dead man's bell
I'm gonna ring my dead man's bell

When I go I'm gonna ring my bell
Six feet under send 'em all to hell

Lyin' down low
Under this heap
Noone hears me
I'm covered by sleep

I'm gonna pull a dead man's bell
I'm gonna ring my dead man's bell

Angel From Another Town
For a friend in Paris

Where'd you go that night
The night you flew away
Do you know it's alright
But only for today

You're an angel from another town

Are you thinkin' of me
While I waste my time
You turned off the light
Faded into the night

You're an angel from another town

Gonna miss yer everything

Where did we go
Will we make it there again
If I leave it all behind
Can it come back again

You're an angel from another town

Tylor Durand: Vocal / Acoustic guitar / Drums
Justin Ferren: Electric guitar / Dobro
Mark Shepherd: Bass / Tamborine


Leave My Sins At Home
Westside Highway outtake

When I get to heaven
What am I gonna see
Will it be the Devil
Smilin' up at me
And when I see old Jesus
What is he gonna say
Will he come and walk with me
Will he turn away

Gonna leave my sins at home

Repeat

Ain't No Bible
Written & recorded in New Hamphire, winter 2000

Well I got my work boots on
But I ain't been workin'
And I got my bottle open
But I ain't been drinkin'
I'm just here waitin' for you
And I been livin' to be lyin' by yer side

Well I got my lowriders lowerd
But I ain't been drivin'
And I got my sideburns lowered
But I ain't been rollin'
I'm just sittin' here thinkin' of you
And I'm just livin' to be lyin' by yer side

Well I'm a workin' man baby
And I do it for you
I'm a troubador baby
I walk the mile for you
Well I'm sittin' here waitin' for you

I'm waitin' for you baby

Blue Light
Central Park, fall 1999

Blue light midnight and you
It's a cool night where we goin' to
The world slips through my open window
And all I see is you

Travel long and hard to find you
Sooner or later the roads all break through
The world's spinin' like a top through my window
And all i see is you

I wish like a dream this would not end
If I fall back behind can I come up again
The world is mine the world is yours
And all I see is you

Tylor Durand: Vocal / Acoustic guitar / Electric guitar / Bass / Drums / Shaker

Shy With Eyes

Written & recorded in New Hamphire, winter 2000

I went somewhere with you
In my mind last night
The story took place
In a wide open space
We were killin' time in tennessee
Drinkin' cheap red wine
Readin' books about the sea
Livin' on our last dime

I'm shy with your eyes

Across the river there's a place
Red buildings in the sky
Cars pass me by
White cloud lines
Then it occured to me
You were standin' right there
Right in front of me

I'm shy with your eyes

Wake Up
Written for Alexis in 1996

Wake up
The clouds are low
Wake up
It's time to go
Will I see you again
Please don't go

Wake up
The sun is down
Wake up
There's no one around
I wish it wasn't so
I wish you wouldn't go

The Corn Grows High

Tylor Durand: Vocal / Electric guitar / Bass / Drums / Tamborine

Anymore, I'm Not Sure

I left you a note last night
But I can’t remember what it said
And I can’t be certain
That it was really you I was talking to
I left you sleeping
But I watched you walk on down the hall

Well I can’t be sure anymore
Anymore I can’t be sure, yeah

And I wanted to ask you
Could I have that song back
But I guess I’ll give it away
To a girl that says she wants to stay
You left me sleeping
But I watched you walk on down the hall

Well I guess I can’t be sure
Anymore I can’t be sure anymore yeah

Well I can’t be sure anymore
No I can’t be sure anymore

Let's Kill Columbus Day

Let's kill Columbus Day

I spent the week alone
Wasted on words overgrown
Looking to the east and the west
Never knowing which was best

Let's kill Columbus Day

Well we're spitting out the rest
Across country waters
Knowing what's best
Living on our fines & rest
Saving what's better & rest

Let's kill Columbus Day

Tylor Durand: Vocal / Acoustic guitar
Mark Shepherd: Banjo

Living Too Long

Well I been wishing too long
Trying to get it right
And I been sitting too long
Cold moon light

I got nothing to lose

I been living too long
Try to get it right
Well this night's too long
In the heat of the light

I got nothing to lose
