Until the Harvest Comes

 

Sun rising through the trees

Winter found her end

I’m just a springtime seed

Tumbling in the wind

 

I’m going back to where I came from

Going back where I belong

Going back to where I came from

Until the harvest comes

 

So till up my fertile soil

Spread my brothers round

I’ll be a happy bean

In the cool ground

 

I’m going back to where I came from

Where the seasons long

Going back to where I came from

Until the harvest comes

 

I hope I survive

The hail in July

And the storms in spring

When the winter comes

Keep my leaves towards the sun

and my roots deep

If I make it through

I’ll be blooming next to you

We’ll be humming with the birds

This time next year

 

If I’m lost and can’t be found

Sew my memories in the ground

 

Going back to where I came from

Where the corn grows tall

Going back to where I came from

Feels like I never left at all

 

Going back to where I came from

Back where I belong

Going back to where I came from

Until the harvest comes

 

Sun rising through the trees

Winter found her end

I’m just a springtime seed

Tumblin in the wind

Tumblin in the wind

Tumblin in the wind​

 

 


 

Grow

 

What if the end is a beginning

What if flowers never bloomed

What if the cure to all this heartache

Is inside of you

 

We are all so full of questions

Where do we go when this life ends

What if every moment matters

Or this is all pretend

 

What if we’re not suppose to know

What the future holds

Sunshine above and roots below

What if we’re just here to grow

 

There’s just one thing we’re looking for

In a world so big with hearts so small

What if we loved like we were children

Not afraid to fall

 

We don’t know where we’re going

We just don’t want to go alone

What if the road is all that matters

And we never find a home

 

What if we’re not suppose to know

What the future holds

Sunshine above and roots below

What if we’re just here to grow

 

What if we’re not suppose to know

What the future holds

Sunshine above and roots below

Flowers waiting through the snow

What if we’re just here to grow

What if we’re just here to grow





 

Stranger in Me

 

I’ve come to meet the stranger in me

Come to meet the stranger in me

To dig in deep

No matter what I see

Come to meet the stranger in me

 

I’ve come to find an untamed love

Come to find an untamed love

To push and shove

When the times get rough

Come to find an untamed love

 

I’ve come to sing my favorite song with the window down

I’ve come to break into graveyard of this ghost town

To pay off my debts and give my respects

I’ve come to be lost and found

 

i’ve come to tear my old house down

Come to burn my old house down

To break new ground

and love the life i’ve found

I’ve come to tear my old house down

 

I’ve come to rip up my heart

Come to rip up my heart

Unmask my scars

Turn pain into art

I’ve come to rip up my heart

 

I’ve come to meet the stranger in me

I’ve come to meet the stranger in me

To dig in deep

No matter what I see

I’ve come to meet the stranger in me

The stranger in me

The stranger in me





 

Row


Crashing waves
Tieing your stomach into knots
Creaking ship
Moonless sky and you’re lost
You are brave
And Friends with the dark
But tonight you’re lonely far from home
Tonight you’re broken but free to roam

Let go
Hear the water flow
Let go
You are not alone
Let go let go let go
Row

When the call came
And you fell on the floor
Six months
If you're lucky a couple more
Now you’re tired
And moving slow
You found that bourbon in the bottom drawer
Tonight you’re sinking far below
Tonight your broken until tomorrow

Let go
Hear the water flow
Let go
You are not alone
Let go let go let go
Row

 

Let go
Hear the water flow
Let go
You are not alone no you are not alone

Let go

And let the whisky flow
Let go let go let go
 

Single Girl on a Honeymoon

 

In a sun drenched dress

Sippin on a blue moon

Jennys was dancing alone

At three in the afternoon

 

She’d been up all night

crying gin tears wondering

How she ever got here

But now there's a sunset

A good tune It ain’t bad

For a single girl on a honeymoon

 

All the drunk boys swoon as she glows

She just sways on to Tom Petty singing you don’t know

 

It’s a lonely night in Honolulu

But from the sway of her hips it's hard to tell

She's learned life is more than what you’ve been through

As she throws her bottle into a pitch black sea

She finally knows what it means be free

 

In an old dark church

On the 24th day of june

Jennys pacing down the aisle

Looking for her something blue

 

She thought well he’s a good man nice car big house

Could do worse but maybe she could do without

She thought of New York Art school Young dreams

And the single girl on a honeymoon

Throws her veil to the empty pews

And leaves behind the one sure thing she ever knew

 

It’s a lonely night in Honolulu

But from the sway of her hips it's hard to tell

She's learned life is more than what you’ve been through

As she throws her bottle into a pitch black sea

She finally knows what it means be free

 

It’s waking up at midnight

After crying yourself to sleep

It’s diving in the ocean

And feeling alive that you can’t breathe

It’s loving yourself so hard

There’s nothing more you need

 

In a sun drenched dress

Sipping on a blue moon

Jennys dancing alone

At three in the afternoon




 

One More Kiss

 

One more kiss I’m dreaming

One more glass before we lose ourselves

Moonstruck eyes are gleaming

Here’s to every inch of you

 

Let’s get away from the fast life

Far from the traffic and the city lights

There’s a train in the distance there’s a fog in the window

It’s a crisp fall night

 

Cozy up in a two door

Coletrain rolling through the stereo

Throw your bottles in the ditch give your cares to the wind

the moon won’t let anybody know

Just there to glow

 

One more kiss I’m dreaming

One more glass until we lose ourselves

Moonstruck eyes are gleaming

Here’s to every inch of you

 

Wish I could catch this moment in a bottle

Save it for a lonly day

Wish I meet you here tomorrow

But I’ll be miles away

 

One more kiss I’m dreaming

One more glass until we lose ourselves night

Moonstruck eyes are gleaming

Here’s to every inch of you

Here’s to every inch of you​

 



 

I Want to Feel Love

 

Break down the door

Chip off the paint

Rip up the floorboard

See what remains

This old heart

Is collecting dust

Cabinets are empty

Hinges are rusted

 

Time time time I’m gonna trust you

Time time time

 

I want to feel love that’s real

I want to feel love that’s real

 

It’s two am in Nashville

In a dingy bar

Dreams being sipped out of bleading hearts

Me and three lonely men

Too warm to drive

Bartendress is playing Dylan

Couldn’t hurt to try

 

Time time time I’m gonna trust you

Time time time

 

I want to feel love that’s real

I want to feel love that’s real

I want to feel love that’s real

 

I’ll clean out the closet

Paint over the scars

Open the windows

Fill the cracks in my heart

I’m all out of answers

But I think I’ve got some hope left to give

 

I want to feel love that’s real

I want to feel love that’s real

I want to feel love that’s real

I want to feel love that’s real

I want to feel love want to feel love

I want to feel love want to feel love

I want to feel love that’s real​

 


 

Lonely Side of Freedom

 

If you’ve chased a dream far from home

Of followed a dirt road to see where it goes

If you’ve seen the sun set on the mountains alone

Then you know

The lonely side of freedom

 

When tomorrow is all that you trust

And the road never seems to stretch far enough

If you've looked out the rear view and only seen dust

Then you know

The Lonely side of freedom

 

You could call it hope or greed

To seek something better

When you’ve got all you need

But I can’t stop

there's a better life for me

Far From the lonely side of freedom

 

I’ve chased a dream far from home

Left behind everything i've known

For a love I don’t know yet

For a life I ain’t lived

All I’ve know is the lonely side of freedom

Oh i feel safe on the lonely side of freedom

I've got to leave the lonely side of freedom

 



 

Sweet Little Life

 

Colorado sun you keep me warm

You get a little close sometimes

And leave before the storm

I ain’t ever felt that built a life all of my own

glad I’ve found a place I can call home

 

Ohhhh what a sweet little life it is

Ohhhh what a sweet little life it is

What a sweet little life it is

 

Makes me feel small it makes me feel alive

Mountain in the west there’s a big ol jet plane in the sky

Can’t keep my eyes on the road driving down I 25

Oh I’m glad I found a place I feel alive

 

Ohhhh what a sweet little life it is

Ohhhh what a sweet little life it is

what a sweet little life it is

 

Colorado moon don’t you let me roam

You told me once when I was young

You don’t know the places you could go

I ain’t ever built a life all of my own

But I’m glad I’ve found a place I can call home

I’m glad I’ve found a place I can call home

Ohh I’m glad I’ve found a place I can call home




 

I’m Ready

 

It takes a little time to heal I know it now

Hard times come and they go like Colorado rain

So I’m leaving tonight with a point to prove

Only dust in the rear view mirror I choose to ride

Under a sky full of stars tonight

 

I’m ready to leave my past behind

Ready to open this heart of mine

And leave it open wide

 

I’m ready

For the ride

I’m ready

To see what i might find

Bring the thunder the wind and the rain bring the pain

 

It takes a couple tears oh it takes a couple broken hearts

To see past the pain to a life built to fall apart

Running scared through the night only the moon to light my way

Tomorrow's gonna come a little brighter than today

 

I’m ready to leave my past behind

Ready to open this heart of mine

And leave it open wide

 

I’m ready

For the ride

I’m ready

To see what i might find

Bring the thunder the wind and the rain bring the pain

 

I’m ready

For the ride

I’m ready

To see what i might find

Bring the thunder the wind and the rain bring the pain

I’m Ready





 

Nebraska Sky

 

When I die

Hang my soul from a star in that old Nebraska sky

bury my heart in the soil that kept me alive

When I die

hang my soul in that old Nebraska sky

 

Wide open road

the wind won’t stop

Whatever won’t erode around here

we call a monument

River like a marching band

Softest place to land

plains like an open hand

They can give they can take away

 

When I die

Hang my soul from a star in that old Nebraska sky

bury my heart in the soil that kept me alive

When I die hang my soul in that old Nebraska sky

 

Under a ponderosa pine

Thunders rolling in on summer night

I can hear a train cry

Singing this small town goodbye

 

Some things don’t change

like the sea of red on game day

the simple things built us

the seeds we’ve sewn

the reason we come home

 

When I die

Hang my soul from a star in that old Nebraska sky

When I die

Hang my soul from a star in that old Nebraska sky

When I die

Hang my soul from a star in that old Nebraska sky

bury my heart in the soil that kept me alive

When I die hang my soul in that old Nebraska sky
