Track Name: Funeral Song
well she left me and I don't blame her
because I've been leaving her for years
she stuck with me for so long
and now my eyes are filled with tears

because I did a good job, making a good thing go wrong
I've done a good woman so wrong for so long

and I know that I'll miss her
and I know that she'll be fine
she'll get what she wants
but the kid it won't be mine

I've done a good job making a good thing go wrong
I've done a good woman so wrong for so long

but I'm tired of trying
to be a man that I'm not
there's no use in crying
but that don't mean I'm not
I've been more afraid
then I've been afraid of dying
and I tried so hard to keep her
now I'm tired of trying

I did a good job making a good thing go wrong
I've done a good woman so wrong for so long
Track Name: Want You to Know
she always wanted you home
you couldn't be there
she's been sad and all alone
why aren't you home

I want you to know
you aren't so wrong
I need you to know
you'll get along when morning comes

she waited under the rain
a prairie girl on the coast
but time can't always forgive
the boy she loves the most

I want you to know
you aren't so wrong
I need you to know
you'll get along when morning comes

because you are enough
you are enough
you are enough
you are enough
Track Name: In Spite of You
I am broken in spite of you
and everything I'd like to do
I was so good, the last month of June
but summer here it ends too soon

so I'll sit in the dark and I'll wait for you
and sing it until I'm black and blue

don't worry, Love, don't scream and cry
we'll always have the month of July
don't worry, Love, I'll never give up on
you.
Track Name: Wolfe et Montcalm
there is a special type of torture reserved for lovers
when you leave your love alone
and you come back to find that she's changed

and they say change makes you stronger
lets you know how much you love her
and it turns out that you love her quite a bit

when you left your life was fine
and you come back and lose your mind

there is a special type of love reserved for fools
and I know I'm one, yah I'm one

they say birds flock together and fish go to school
but it turns out that they are lovers just the same

when you left your life was fine
and you come back and lose your mind
Track Name: Come Back Home
open your eyes, see what you're doing
block out the noise, see what you're losing

your life's too hard, you're broke and you're poor
got nobody to fall back on
well hey kid, why don't you fall on me

take a breath don't ya sigh
taste while you chew it
all my love and all my time
won't cost you nothing to lose it

the worst of yours is mine I'll hold the door
your folks have led you on
and father's hopes, son
they aren't your dreams

you can see it in your eyes
come back home
you can see it in your smile
come back home
i'll always hold a light if you
come back home
for you i'd always fight
you're not alone

but you gotta be somebody
in your old man's eyes
couldn't ever need somebody
only selfish ties

but careful kid, don't hurt the ones who love you
you better love somebody
don't ya leave somebody
they cried and they cried

you're not alone
you're not alone
you're not alone
you're not alone
