It Wasn't Easy

They spent their time
Dealing with their hand
Then came the day
When they had to go away
Well it wasn't easy
To decide who should go
But it wasn't hard
To get up on that road

Get up on the road

The ride was long
The dusk about to begin
Then came the time
When they had to settle in
It wasn't easy
To stay in one place
But it wasn't hard
To look back alone

Look back alone

First it was East
And then it was West
Neither of them knowing
Which way was best
It wasn't easy
To stay ahead of the line
But it wasn't hard
To get lost in time

Get lost in time

El Camino

We had an El Camino
We were ridding on the strip
It was long and wide
Boys it could really rip
There's a hole in the floor
And there were scars on the door
When we'd ride around downtown
We couldn't remember anymore

There Is A Place

There is a place
The fires still burn
The old roads are gone
There's nothing left to learn

Reno

People undercover
People underground
Just a dead end road
To a dead end town

Reno

It was in a dream I had
We shot through the sky
It turned out bad
She couldn't look me in the eye

Reno

Can I Follow You

Dust in a dirty room
Our life long ago
When can I talk to you

I take it you don't know

Where does the stairway end
And can I follow you
It's been days on end
When will I break through

Where do I go from here
Do I move on alone
Will it be so clear
Will I be on my own

A Thousand Letters

I wrote a thousand letters
I said a thousand things
And all that I can remember
It don't mean a thing
Three years to the day
I can't even think
I try to pull it together
And find my missing link

Your're so stuck in my mind
You're still stuck in my mind

I rode a thousand rivers
I crossed a thousand tracks
The things that I used to be
They ain't coming back
I tried to get it together
On some borrowed time
I try to pull it together
None of it was mine

You're still stuck in my mind

Letter To You

I sent a letter to you
Just yesturday
It said could you come out
Come out and play
And if you feel allright
About coming with me
Then I'll take you there
Across the open sea

We gonna ride we gonna play
We gonna take the night and the day

Whe my day is done
And we're feeling allright
I'm gonna give you my love
All through the night

We gonna laugh we gonna sing
We gonna let ourselves ring

So if you let yourself
Get lost with me
We can dream all night
We can both be free

Tylor Durand: Vocal / Electric guitar

One Room Shack

The last time I saw you
You were dressed in black
Little did I know
You wouldn't make it back

I was talking all night
Getting nothing back
Spending my days
In a one room shack

Though we could roll into town
Burn the place to the ground
But the train never stopped
I couldn't turn around

So I left you with the U-Haul
The baggage and my hat
And went along with my plan
Booked myself into a one room shack
A one room shack

Don't Care

I burned at the top
Never really knew what it was for
You led yourself to the end
Laid yourself right down beside my door

It's all over now
Do you even care

You gave up the most
All you really wanted was your own
You led yourself to the end
Never really wanting anymore

It's all over now
Do you even care

I burned at the top
Never really knew what it was for
You led yourself to the end
Laid yourself right down beside my door

It's all over now

The Man Who Works With His Hands (Blue Truck)

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

Gonna Leave This World Behind

Gonna leave this world behind
Make it ease my mind
Take a train far away
Get my soul saved

Gonna leave this world behind
Go far away
Gotta go gotta go
To another place

recording sessions

It Wasn't Easy (Demo 1)

They spent their time
Dealing with their hand
Then came the day
When they had to go away
Well it wasn't easy
To decide who should go
But it wasn't hard
To get up on that road

Get up on the road

The ride was long
The dusk about to begin
Neither of them knowing
Which way to win
Well it wasn't easy
To stay in one place
But it wasn't hard
To look back alone

Look back alone

First it was East
And then it was West
Neither of them knowing
Which way was best
It wasn't easy
To stay ahead of the line
But it wasn't hard
To get lost in time

Get lost in time

A Thousand Letters (Original Version)

I wrote a thousand letters
I said a thousand things
All that I can remember
It don't mean a thing
Three years to the day
I can't even think
I try to pull it together
Find my missing link

You're so stuck in my mind
You're still stuck in my mind

I rode a thousand rivers
I crossed a thousand tracks
The things I used to be
They ain't coming back
I tried to get it together
On some borrowed time
I tried to pull it together
None of it was mine

You're still stuck in my mind
You're so stuck in my mind

Never really knew what it was for

Laid yourself right down beside my door

It's all over now

You gave up the most
All you really wanted was your own
You led yourself to the end
Never really wanting anymore
