Track Name: As The Sun Goes Down
As the Sun Goes Down

As the sun goes down
Down around my ankles whoa my my
There's a sliver of light
Shaking through the night
To my window
I sit by the fire
As the rain outside comes down like knives
And I'll tell only lies
Little lullabyes
Girl I'm so young
But we must ease ourselves back to life
Oh tonight
We ain't being ourselves half the time
And it ain't right
Feet are getting heavy
Heavy as the night
You ask me if something's wrong
I don't know about that babe
But it don't feel right
Girl I stole a horse
Black as night and named it the truth
I'll come by your place
And you'll wear your white dress
What we'll do
There's a place I know
My Grandfather told me where to go
A little mango grove where the river bowed
Down in Mexico
And we will ride on through the night
Oh tonight
Down down down down
Where the water tastes like wine
This lonely life is not for me
Can't you see
Still I hear it calling me
Come and get daylight
Daylight

Waiting for my time
Oh I
Oh I'm just
Waiting for my time
Track Name: Standing on the Bridge
Standing on the Bridge

Standing on the bridge waiting for the sun to rise
I get the feeling that I'm never gonna get my mind back
And I don't mind
My feet are on the ceiling
And my big fat juicy heart is bleeding

Eyes are running like the Nile
Time halts
You start to cry and drop the knife
As I begin to crawl towards the piano
You're still standing at the door
Tell me I'm dying baby I know

How you look like an angel with a mercy dove
Love
So pure believe your a gift
To me from above

Now come over so I can feel your heart beat inside your breast
Give me a kiss that tastes like cheap wine and cigarettes
And the red blood still spitting everywhere
It's in your pretty little hands
And it's in your black hair

Things go black
Then we're in a place so serene
Swimming in a deep blue tiny mountain stream
Out of the water sitting looking in each others eyes
Your rusty wet lips and your brown skin look so nice

And a feeling
A vision like I never had before
Like I was you and you were me
And we were sitting on heaven's floor

I still see it baby
Even though the time it takes is weighing on me
Track Name: Butterfly Man
Butterfly Man

Laying up in bed
All night with you again
Where we hide
From the next day
'Cause we know
We know
That I
In the end I really can't stay
Pleasure and pain are both the same
And love is just a losing game
Wanna give it all
But afraid to lose it if it falls apart
We hold each other
But we hold back
We enclose one another
Then we step back
I can see it in your eyes
You need to hold on to your life
Now run away my dreams of paradise
Oh I say that I'm a

Butterfly man
I'm just a butterfly man
Today I'm yours
But tomorrow when I'm gone
You'll understand

Butterfly man
I'm just a butterfly man
Holdin' me mama
Can't you see
Is like a handful of sand

So now before I go away
If I could seal your heart
Deep inside
The feelings of today
I'll be
Keeping the fire burning
For the moment I return to see you
But the only problem is
I cannot promise anything
We hold each other
But we hold back
We enclose one another
Then we step back
I can see it in your eyes
You need to hold on to your life
Now run away my dreams of paradise
Oh I say that I'm a

Butterfly man
I'm just a butterfly man
Today I'm yours
But tomorrow when I'm gone
You'll understand

Butterfly man
I'm just a butterfly man
Holdin' me mama
Can't you see
Is like a handful of sand
Track Name: Take These Chains
Take These Chains

Girl
You may know by now
I've been watching you lay by the fire
While my desire keeps getting stronger
How could I strangle my voice?
This ain't a choice
Just to prolong it

Take these chains
From off my back
If you could be swayed to my side
Time would not let me down

I could touch you like ice
And hold onto you like the night
I've been sketching patterns in your head
Like you would have said
I was the water
Baby so blow out the candle
I know you can handle
Just what we've got here

Take these chains
From off my back
If you could be swayed to my side
Time would not let me down

I could touch you like ice
And hold onto you like the night
I've been sketching patterns in your head
Like you would have said
I was the water
Baby so blow out the candle
I know you can handle
Just what we've got here

Take these chains
From off my back
If you could be swayed to my side
Time would not let me down
Track Name: Lay Low
Lay Low

Seem to be sleeping
In a bowl that's leaking
Drifting down the river
Without aim
But all those hours
Parting up our world
That I never call upon in vain

Thinking back to the times
Oh when I
Had so little faith

Just peace inside your hands
Crying in the night
Warmth inside my wine
Come inside my mind
And I lay low
Wait for the right

Find me where I lay low
My hidden halo
Down between the hills and valley side
Can't turn my back on the shaded out
Sun on my bedding
Oh my shadow knows it's both the same
Thinking of the times
Oh when I
Had so little faith

Just peace inside your hands
Crying in the night
Warmth inside my wine
Come inside my mind
And I lay low
Lights out
I'm sitting by the river
Waiting for new
Things to write
Track Name: Delivered
Delivered

I'm so far inside the jungle deep
More longer with each machete sweep
My time for me is about to come
Finally see all the things I've done

I awake inside a dream
Drunk and dazed under a tree
I feel hands that softly touch my face
Sisters in this hidden place

They sing songs that fill my mind
In the early morning light
Up above I see the tops of trees
Think I know just where they're taking me

Down to the river
I'm being delivered
Oh My

Down to the river
I'm being delivered
Oh my

They lay me on a bed of reeds
Upon wooden rafts to carry me
With the water I begin to roam
On the way back to the home

And I calmly close my eyes
If I'm going well it's all right
Soon enough then I will see
Just what's in store for me

Down to the river
I'm being delivered
Oh my

Down to the river
I'm being delivered
Oh my
Track Name: Tired of Waiting
Tired of Waiting

Te amo si
Si querer
Parece que va llover
Parece que va llover
Ay mama no llores.

All I really want in this life is
To know what I want

All I really want in this life is
To know what I want

I'm getting tired of waiting
So tired of belating over you
It's just my time you're wasting
It's my pride you're breaking
Girl we're through
Unless you leave him
Come with me tonight
For a ride
I've got the good love
That good good good stuff
Yes deep inside of me

I'm a thief in the night
In your mind you don't see me
Then I speak
In your eyes I can see that you need me
I'm a tiger in the snow
Don't you know you can feed me
Do what's right
Let your heart beat your mind
Come and see me
Like you did before

Mamacita esperando mientras tu estas dando
Indirectas al izquierda y derecha
Yo sonriendo
Pero adentro moriendo
Pare fecha que tu y yo seremos juntos
Yo se que tienes novio pero somos
Bueno bueno bueno
Muy bueno bueno bueno
Que rico el toro
Te digo.
Mimado mimada hechate pa mi lado
Tu si comes helado y canda vez que te veo
Lleno de deseo
Hay un pico rojo
En mi alma quemando pa ti
Mami si me vas a matar
Matame con punal y no asi.
Escandalos bonita y golosa
Desde tus pies hasta tu boca
Sabroso que cosa.
Ya sabes
Te quiero te quiero te quiero.

I'm a thief in the night
In your mind you don't see me
Then I speak
In your eyes I can see that you need me

I'm getting tired of waiting
So tired of belating over you
It's just my time you're wasting
It's my pride you're breaking
Girl we're through

Te amo sin parar
Sin respirar sin querer.
Mamacita tu eres la luna yo soy el mar
El sol es la vida que calienta el agua.
El sound de mi guitara
Y de me voz llega a tus orejas en tiempo infinito.
Las nubes son mis cansiones puras y llenas
Y nunca lo mismo.
El rio que se trae las montanas es mi sangre
Que corre y corre.
Y como yo tengo todo a mi lado
Tu soledad es la cosa mas bonita
Que nunca es visto.
Parece que va llover
Ay mama no llores
Track Name: Come and Get it
Come and Get it

Hello how are you?
I'm fine thank you
What do you want to do today
With me?
We can go to the park
Or play at the pool
We can do anything today

Anything
Anything
Together we can do anything

Anything
Anything
We can do anything today

If you want go and get it baby
Just don't let it take control of you no
You've been waiting for your chance
Just to have this dance upon the water
If you got it go and use it baby
Just don't lose it on your way back home no
'Cause somebody wants to know
If you can touch your toes and drink the water
Man a lot depends
Being friends with a kangaroo
She says it's good for me
But it sure if good for you

If you see it then believe it baby
Just don't need it their to satisfy you
And if your mama choose
Then you take off your shoes and make a dollar
If you're happy and you know it baby
Clap your hands that's what it's all about yeah
But your clientele won't tell you
If your garden smells a little hotter
You can overdose getting close to a kangaroo
She says it's good for me
But it sure if good for you

Well we're alone and you like dancing baby
And you know you can't carry a tune yeah
You've got so much soul
And you already know
That I'm your biggest fan
So why don't you come to my land baby
You can go on tour with me and my band
And you take care of promotion
And apply the lotion to the caravan
The world's in my hands
Making plans with a kangaroo
It'll be good for me
And sure good for you too
It'll be good for me
And sure good for you too
Track Name: New Place
New Place

In a new place
Where the streets don't recognize your face
And finally
You can see everything
Oh the red brick
And the chimney roofs
They watch us spiral down and out
Spilling onto streets of gold
Like streams of light
And the rain last night
Has glazed the scene
And wiped the slate clean
I say brother
Where we going to
And without knowing
Without slowing
Hunched his shoulders
Something starts and something's over

Wonder how we got so high
I forget just what this was like
I never wanna come back down
Crawling on the ground
And then the tension slips
I think I nearly lost my grip
And I can breath again
Welcome back my friend

Saturday night
Stirring like a hurricane
Four compadres
Arriving and riding
Like conquistadors
Waltzing down the avenues of dawn
Stealing furniture from lawns
Drunken princes
Brave in riches
Darkened sparks
Illuminated
Verses we are long salated
Oh oh oh yeah

Wonder how we got so high
I forget just what this was like
I never wanna come back down
Crawling on the ground
And then the tension slips
I think I nearly lost my grip
And I can breath again
Welcome back my friend

Can we do it tonight?
Track Name: When the Night
When the Night

Coming down the dirt road to the town tonight
There is a crowd around I can feel it breath
More than a thousand souls out in the night
I get so blind I can't see
Smoke is rising from the fire that burns
The sky is purple and the water rise
People talking quiet as they start to learn
To see with their own eyes

There lives our lives
Different as any other
My pain is your pain
Tell me
Do you wanna go under?

You can feel it when the night starts burning
Feet shuffle on that day
Then we gonna find
What we're gonna be fighting
Come again
You can feel it when the night starts burning
Make you wanna stay
Light will fill your eyes

We've got the seeds of life
Hidden in our hands
Planted by ourselves
Now can't you see that
We've got the seeds of life
Do you understand?
Heed the calling
There lives our lives
Different as any other
My pain is your pain
Tell me
Do you wanna go under?

You can feel it when the night starts burning
Feet shuffle on that day
Then we gonna find
What we're gonna be fighting
Come again
You can feel it when the night starts burning
Make you wanna stay
Light will fill your eyes


'Cause you got love
Love we got inside
It's time
To open our eyes
And really wonder
And really wonder
It's enough for
All we need in life
Can you take me back?
Can you take me back?

You can feel it when the night starts burning
Feet shuffle on that day
Then we gonna find
What we're gonna be fighting
Come again
You can feel it when the night starts burning
Make you wanna stay
Light will fill your eyes
Track Name: Savannakhet Breakdown
Savannakhet Breakdown

You're standing there as my bike died
Invited me to come inside
Faded white hat
Young son in blue jeans
Face I've seen before in a dream
Your dad comes home drunk and merry
Greets me as if we were married
Invites me in for dinner and beer
Slowly the daylight it appears

And when it is time
We can play this song
When it is time

I was going down to Cambodia
But now that I've got to know ya
I'm going up all the way to Vien Tan
Hand in hand like a family man
You've got a husband in England
But you're split up and I'm singin'
Songs about love
Throwing stones with the kin
Babe you know it is what it is

And when it is time
We can play this song
When it is time

Just a mess around
Spending all my time
Eating all my cookies girl
And drinking all my wine
Well I guess this town
Is not where I reside
And I can see that
Now we're locked up in the hotel
Like if it's over then oh well
Silver ring you gave me is running through your hair
Still I'm wondering how much we care

And when it is time
We can play this song
When it is time
Track Name: Only Life
Only Life

Your broken heart
Is not my crime
There's something out there
That I've got to find
When I'm in your arms
I feel like I've come home
But I gotta keep on rollin'
On my own

So close the door
You know I gotta do it right
One more last time
Before we say goodbye
It's only life
It's only life darling

But then again who knows
The way I'm supposed to go

But then again who knows
The way I'm supposed to go
Track Name: Mandarin Oranges
Mandarin Oranges

I take the back door
Past the bucket for a bathroom stall
Getting cold without my jacket
But I'm all checked in
Climbing up the stairs
With a box of matches
I've got 16 kyat
That's enough for me to dine
On vien at the marketplace
And a Coke with two glasses
Listening to the chop
Of the blade on the butcher block
Now here I go
Walking down the shoulder of the street
Smell the dirty red smoke of cooking meat
Standing there on the corner
Eating mangoes with chilli sauce
Meet a brown eyed girl
As the sky starts turning brown brown brown
I think I'm gonna like this country
She says 'You know but honey
I think you're right'
And those burning stars
Turning in the night
Bathing her in purple light
And I feel it
Different than before
As I leave this life
Kinda like a ninja
In the night

Now we're eating mandarin oranges
As the sun goes down around the orchard
So when it comes time to get me
Mama you know just where I'll be
Where I'll be

Island world
If you look you'll find me
Island world
If you look you'll find me

I met mi hermano from Mexico
Me llamo pidel muy bien muy si es Alfonso
And we get Russian Motos
Take them back to
Sittin like little kids with brand new toys
Chillin' with them on the corner
With arms over my shoulder
Now that all right
Eating food playing songs
Until the next day comes
We didn't even know how to ride before tonight
In the morning hit the road
Like gold streams of light
Guitars strapped on backs
We slice like knives
Feel the wet breath of death on our faces
As we duck behind a truck
Tucked under the edge of time
I trust I'm rising above the dust
And flying
That we're busted up inside a bus
Just lying
Then jumping up

Thunder and lightnin'
What are we finding
No se cabrone
Chango

So n ow we're eating mandarin oranges
As the sun goes down around the orchard
So when it comes time to get me
Mama you know just where I'll be
Where I'll be

You're
I know you got some tricks
For me up your sleeve
You say that you're 19
And work at Rio Quay
But I'm not the same same
That you usually meet
So if you like me
For more than my money
You seem real sweet
Maybe we could be something
Let's get a two two
To the lakeside
We could just talk
For a little while

And your day to day grind
Is the real song
I know the world feels cold
But your heart feel warm
There are a lot of dirty men
That want to do you harm
But you stay strong
Carry on
Working for your family
Working so hard
And I see your smile
Makes me think that I
Wanna live my life keeping you forever
In my mind

Island world
If you look you'll find me
Track Name: Daylight
Daylight

As the sun goes down
Down around my ankles oh my my
As a sliver of light
Shaking through the night to my window
And I hold my fire
As the rain outside comes down like knives
I can't tell no lies
And I ain't felt your thighs
Girl I'm so young
We must ease ourselves back to life
'Cause we ain't been ourselves half the time
It ain't right

Girl I stole a horse
Black as night and named it the truth
I come by your place
And you wear your white dress
And what we'll do
There's a place I know
My Grandfather told me where to go
A little mango grove
With a river going down to Mexico
And we will ride on through the night
Yeah we will ride on through the night
Down down down
Where the water tastes like wine

Daylight
Daylight
Daylight
