Track Name: City Life
To answer your question the city life is good
I've seen so much more than I ever thought I would
I've seen men die right here on this street
I've seen busy folks step over them with their busy feet

I've seen kids go into business
to graves or to jail
Selling things you can't believe are for sale
I've seen buildings pop up like big iron weeds
In this concrete soil, that's covered in disease
...and one more thing

I've been wishing on satellites
tossing pennies in the sewer
crossing my fingers, my heart and my arms that
I wake up in yours
but that never comes true of course

And good ole Harvey, he's not as well
As he was when we talked before
Can't get a job and he swears there's no money
In killing folks anymore

He blames the government for cutting out
the middle-man
and driving down the wage
I mean the teenagers do it for free anymore
There's no money for a shooter these days
...it's a tough game to play

I've been wishing on satellites
tossing pennies in the sewer
crossing my fingers, my heart and my arms that
I wake up in yours
but that never comes true of course

If you're asking about me
I don't know what to tell you
I imagine a memory
The one I don't have of ...when I held you

So mostly I'm wishing on space stations
Tossing pennies and credit cards in the sewer
Crossing my fingers, my heart and my arms
that I wake up in yours
But that never comes true, of course.

Track Name: This Kiss
Finally it happened
I'm trembling again
You walk me right back
to the place in time when

I was scared to death
scared to take my next breath

Finally it happened
Now I'm lost for words
My heart outracing my mind
to the next verse

about the touch of your skin
and I am trembling again

So I will take your hand to keep me steady
I'm nervous but I've never been
I've never been more ready
To take anyone all the places
that I don't want you to miss
We can leave right after this kiss

Finally it happened
My head it swims
An angel sings some
Long forgotten hymn

And I try hard to listen
Between the kissing

So I will take your hand to keep me steady
I'm nervous but I've never been
I've never been more ready
To take anyone all the places
that I don't want you to miss
We can leave right after this kiss

Right after this kiss
Right after the world stops spinning
There's no sound left but the pounding
of this heart that you are winning
I'll take you all the places
that I don't want you to miss
and we can leave
Right after this kiss

Track Name: Neighbors (Live, The Loft)
what the neighbors must say
about the slamming of doors
the silent treatment and the
screaming, of course,
gravel in the air
as she speeds away
what the neighbors must say
the neighbors must say,

the Jones' and the Walters
they have seen it all before
the closest neighbor is the oldest child
in the bedroom right next door
behind a wave and a smile
their eyes give them away
no hope left, i can only guess
what the neighbors must say
the neighbors must say

he's considered taking his life but
who'd be left to pray
for his child or for his poor wife
what the neighbors must say
the neighbors must say

what the neighbors must say about
the fear and the lies
the sarcasm in their
angry goodbyes
state of a nation gone
separate ways
what the neighbors must say
the neighbors must say

and he's considered taking his life but
who'd be left to pray
for his child or for his poor wife
what the neighbors must say
the neighbors must say


I've considered taking his life but
who'd be left to pray
for his child or for his poor wife
what the neighbors must say
the neighbors must say
