EVERYTHING CHANGES It was getting late Now it’s getting early Everyone I know Is leaving like the last train home Now I’m sorry I’m out of money I’ve got your number And I’m looking for a public phone Or just a dial tone I’m on the roadside now They’re kicking everyone out The city’s closing down I’m hoping you might stick around But everything changes Everything changes I never told you Not in the daylight It doesn’t matter what I tell you At the end of the night It’s getting colder I’m at the end of the high I always love you more When I’m a sorry sight Everything changes I’m on the roadside now They’re kicking everyone out The city’s closing down I’m hoping you might stick around But everything changes

Main Street 03:10
I’m a tiger on the Main Street It’s not a grin these are my teeth Come any closer and you’ll find out It could be terror or relief Terror or relief I’m ready for a fight I’m ready for a rumble tonight I’ll break the anvil I’ll throw the clay in the fire Tear a hole in the sky I’ll look that ancient avenger Straight in the eye I’m ready for a rumble tonight I’m a tiger burning brightly Out in the early morning light Looking for someone to defy me You can be wrong and I’ll be right You’ll be alright I’m ready for a fight I’m ready for a rumble tonight I’ll break the anvil I’ll throw the clay in the fire Tear a hole in the sky I’ll look that ancient avenger Straight in the eye I’m ready for a rumble tonight

Bird of Prey 02:36
I know I probably said too much I speak until I’m out of luck I can see a bird of prey in town I think I know a thing or two It’s only when I’m telling you Now that there’s a bird of prey on my road I guess I’m not the only one To get my enamoured on Do you run your own races? I think I know a thing or two It’s only when I’m telling you Now that there’s a bird of prey on my road I know I probably said too much I speak until I’m out of luck I can see a bird of prey in town I guess it’s not the end of days I’m trying to curtail some things I can run my own races too

Slow 04:04
You’d like to get to know me You’ll know me better than you know yourself There are things that I can show you Like the other side of everything else If you get there after I do I’ll be waiting by the wall You can wear your Sunday clothes But there’ll be nothing left for you to know We’ll take it real slow Take it real slow You’re never gonna know me We’ll come together but I’m leaving alone What is there to show me I already know you’re not going home If you get there after I do I’ll be waiting by the wall You can wear your Sunday clothes But there’ll be nothing left for you to know We’ll take it real slow Take it real slow
5.
NYD 03:46
I don’t want to get up yet But I’m already thinking about cigarettes I go out on Friday night So that I can forget I’m trying not to be unkind If I said everything that I’ve got on my mind I sure could lose a lot of friends And save a lot of time There’s a line and I’ve got mine I’ve got to hold onto something Anything all of the time Anything’s better than nothing I never keep what I find I don’t want to leave alone But there’s no one at this party That I want to take home I’ll get a taxi on my own I know it’s going to be alright But the noise is always louder at night Lying awake in the blue light There’s a line and I’ve got mine I’ve got to hold onto something Anything all of the time Anything’s better than nothing I never keep what I find

I See Stars 02:51
I burnt my feet on the road Before the rain We turned into a street At the end of the day We got sand in the bed When I close my eyes there are stars Stars in my head We listened to a song on the radio It sounded bittersweet And we talked about everything And everything else Now I’m back in the city I gotta make some money You stayed down in the country Sometimes I wonder do you miss me You’re the ringing in my ears I’m gonna call you on the telephone When I close my eyes I see the stars Stars in my head You’re the ringing in my ears When I close my eyes I see the stars I see the stars

Still Here 03:31
We’ve been apart now for more than a year Whenever we go back it’s easy it’s clear I was in town for a couple of days We don’t need to tell anyone where I stayed We still talk twice a week You’re still there I’m still free You said you met someone, she’s nothing like me I bet she’s twice as pretty and half as mean You were the one who wanted to go We were moving too fast and the town was too slow You said that you wouldn’t come around anymore I should have known then, I’d heard it before We still talk twice a month You’re still free and I’m still getting drunk You said you met someone, I met one or two I gave it away, I was looking for you You don’t pick up the phone anymore There’s a big dull divide between love and war You gave away all of the things that we own I’m keeping the photos I took on my phone We still talk once a year You’re still there I’m still here You said you met someone, I met someone too One day I’ll met someone who’s nothing like you
8.
Rosetta 03:43
Rosetta we’ll be standing by An echo and an alibi The feeling in the physics too A decade out into the night Now they’re bringing baby back to life A billion dollar rendezvous Rosetta’s in the sky tonight Hoping that it’s true That we got the mathematics right Right by you In the orbit of a passer by It took a dozen years to say goodnight Such an elegant equation you There may be havoc at the landing site But in the shadows we were mesmerized It took a cable and a spare harpoon Rosetta’s in the sky tonight Hoping that it’s true That we got the mathematics right Right by you
9.
Cherries 03:10
Under the dashboard oil and cherries I push my back into the metal We were almost at the border I’d never seen the end of the night Or the bottom of the water I put my hands out on the leather I press my face against the glass Counting the fires along the road Somewhere out past the edge of the light They’re never gonna know There’s a limit across the line I’ll be letting in all the light There’s a satellite in the sky I’d never seen the end of the night Or the bottom of the water
10.
All I Know 03:13
Under bridges Asleep in cars Inside the doorway Nowhere to be seen Sitting on the step Running for government Swimming across the street Standing around Scrolling in silence Watching on while They’re jumping at chances Through the tree tops I’ll be invisible You’ll be invisible too The more or less that We agree to see it through This is all I know about you The oil in the well The water on the road Looking at the hill Seeing firewood They stand in cemeteries We stand in cemeteries too This is all I know about you
