Track Name: Girl
Girl, oh, girl
Grow- oh, how you grow
But girl- he'll be a man real soon
And girl- he's got designs on you

Girl, oh, girl
Give- oh, how you give
And girl- he'll turn his eyes to you
And girl- you'll know just what to do

So chase it down
And wrap around
And you'll fly with your life
And die with his lies

So go, go, go
And oh- oh no, you know
That girl- he's going to blow your mind
And girl- he'll waste your precious time
Track Name: Over Cold Shoulders
Over and over
Look over your shoulder
At all of the soot on the ground
Oh, it's been falling down
From the moment you got into town
You're older, you're bolder
You've never been colder
You come in here looking for more
And oh, you take all you can fit in your arms
When you walk out the door

You didn't even see it coming
You know you should've seen it coming
You might have even seen it coming
You could have would have seen it all
Could have would have had it all

Father, oh father
Your sons and your daughters
They'll learn how to stand on their own
Oh, when a slap on the left
And a kick to the right's all they know
Daily, or daily
But then again maybe
You'll learn how to love what you have
Oh, if you'll find there is more to the scheme
Than to give or to grab

You didn't even see it coming
You know you should've seen it coming
You might have even seen it coming
You could have would have seen it all
Couldn't wouldn't shouldn't have to crawl

So shoulder, grow older
Don't ever grow colder
And time will bring love to your side
Oh, if you choose to refuse to sit tight while she passes you by
And maybe, just maybe
She'll take you there safely
No more of your running around
And over and over by nightfall
You'll dance in the soot on the ground

You didn't even see it coming
You know you should've seen it coming
You might have even seen it coming
You could have would have seen it all
Could have would have had it all
Track Name: Cinnamon Bone
Crawling flat on broken glass
To you, to you, to you
Scratch it up and turn
Catch a fire and burn
For you, for you, for you

Couldn't love you more
See your face, for sure
I do, I do, I do
Try to behave, but it's all the same
To you, to you, to you

Cinnamon bone, cinnamon bone
Pin a name on the wall
And take your time
Waste your time on me

Hear the greater call come to break and fall
On you, on you, on you
Make a twisted face, walk a lighter way
For you, for you, for you

Get a loaded gun, take a hit and run
From you, from you, from you
Find another son, one day be done
With you, with you, with you

Cinnamon bone, cinnamon bone
Pin a name on the wall
And take your time
Waste your time on

Cinnamon bone, cinnamon bone
Lovely days have
Come and gone
So take your time
Waste your time on me

Crawling flat on broken glass
To you
To you
To you
For you
Track Name: Lily Love
Lily waits down by the park
To come up pink when the moon grows dark
And shine a light on every broken heart
Lily floats when you fall apart

She says,
"Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Go and grow"

Lily love will get her bees on the ground
She'll take that honey and she'll lay it down
Lily, keep that bee from flying away
Tuck him into a daisy chain

And tell him,
"Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Go and grow"

We're always on the run from the brightest change
You'll make the same mistake but who will you blame?
Well, you were flying high- built your nest in the sky
And then I came along with my bow & arrow...

Lily wakes when the fruit is here
Air is clean and the water clear
Lily love will keep it hangin' around
Grab that tree and shake it on down

And then
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Go and grow
And grow
