Don't you care that I'm lonely Don't you care that I'm blue Don't you care that it's only Only because of you That I don't feel no sadness I don't feel no pain I don't feel much of anything Anything these days But a little bit A little lonely, a little blue A little lonely, a little blue A little lonely, a little blue A little lonely, a little blue, blue, blue You know woman, that I died there In the corner of your heart Where your winter winds You know, they ripped me apart There I drowned in your fountain Lay my grave in your field I am gone and forgotten Now there's nothing left to feel But a little bit A little lonely, a little blue A little lonely, a little blue A little lonely, a little blue A little lonely, a little blue, blue, blue I'm so sorry that I've fallen And I just can't seem to land And girl I'm sorry I went all in And my cards can't take the hand But maybe there will come a day When I look back on you And all my feelings fade away Until there's nothing left but truth And I'm a little bit A little lonely, a little blue A little lonely, a little blue A little lonely, a little blue A little lonely, a little blue, blue, blue

It's a mystery to me Your looming porchlight melody The way it rambles on Like a vagabond So sure of the road he seeks But it won't be long While he is gone That he'll return to you to weep As just a brown-nose boozin' beggar Bound to flounder at your feet And after you neutered All your future suitors And you paid them for their time They still drag their hands Like chimpanzees And they swing from all your vines Well they ain't too sure What they're fighting for But like soldiers fall in line With a hymn to hum They'll sing your song Be the rhythm to your rhyme Well any old time Baby baby since the day I found you Swore I'd never let you go But baby lately it seems I have to hound you I'm a hungry wolf but you just won't feed my soul Well your hypnotist Paid lip service To your need to redesign All your trains of thought Though he really ought To be afraid of what he'll find You see, the main street fools They wrote the rules To the sidestreets in your mind Yeah, they're in it Only to win it And they're the sorest losin' kind They threw a town parade On the palisade In the honor of your majesty They sent streamers flyin High in the sky And shot fireworks from the sea And the dunce-cap Joe's They tote no cloaks, They display their full disease That they want nothing less Than for you to be impressed See, they're aiming just to please For anything you need Baby baby since the day I found you Swore I'd never let you go But baby lately it seems I have to hound you I'm a hungry wolf but you just won't feed my soul After your whirlwind trip around the world Became a tour of your own perfection You drank your pride By the riverside But you don't see your reflection And the saddest of all these Tragedies Is there really ain't no exception Still, fortune falls In the sun that calls And it aims in your direction Well but one dark day In the warmth of May They're gonna steal your only sunshine They're gonna lay Your pretty face to waste And you'll be left there wondering why Remembering all those Old sad souls That you left so far behind They still sing their song Going all night long And it echoes in your mind They sing it like chimes Baby baby since the day I found you Swore I'd never let you go But baby lately it seems I have to hound you I'm a hungry wolf but you just won't feed my soul

Meet me when the morning comes, my angel You can play your song, but make it simple Tie to me your ball and chain and drag me around And if your tears should fall, my love, I'd love to play your clown I want you to weigh me down I want you to weigh me down I want you to weigh me down Weigh me down, weigh me down When the evening sun comes crashing down There's a light upon your face But the only light you gave to me Seems to have left without a trace Well I'll wander wild upon your waves Wherever your winds will blow But I'll be sure to pound upon my brakes If you should let your anchor go I want you to weigh me down I want you to weigh me down I want you to weigh me down Weigh me down, weigh me down If the world should end My only wish come true How I'd love to spend My lonely days with you If the world should end My only wish it's true How I'd love to spend My lonely days with you Love came 'round for me again But it left me in the wind And I'm sure that's no concern of yours My only long lost friend I'd love to sail off into Your wild skies of blue But I'll be sure to come back down to Earth If I could fill my cup with you I want you to weigh me down I want you to weigh me down I want you to weigh me down Weigh me down, weigh me down If the world should end My only wish come true How I'd love to spend My lonely days with you If the world should end My only wish it's true How I'd love to spend My lonely days with you

You said you're goin, goin' to Chicago A perfect stranger on the winds I used to know Through all your fairy tales and scary trails In time, I hope That there's a road that defines your destiny And it's bathed in gold Shinin' on tomorrow Blinding all your sorrows baby It's a distant foreign place I've never seen before Just an ancient fading storyline from our old lovers lore And it's a scene that's set so soon to be your acting stage And I wish for luck to follow you in your unknown days Shinin' on tomorrow Blinding all your sorrows baby So that when your winds blow You will surely follow And they will take you away So your feet can learn to fly Take you away To the mysteries in the sky I'll be okay, and I want you to be alright Pay no mind when others ask you why If they say, 'Who are you gonna be babe? Who are you gonna be? Who are you gonna be baby With your sad shredded shoes Your rogue roadside blues That you sing so true But no one's singing along with you You said you're goin, goin, goin to Chicago A vanished vision from my picture frame That I loved long ago And in the distant treetops humming down I can still feel your sun But by the time I turned my head around Your light will be gone Shinin' on tomorrow Blinding all your sorrows baby So that when your wind blows You will surely follow And they will take you away So your feet can learn to fly Take you away To the mysteries in the sky I'll be okay, and I want you to be alright Pay no mind when others ask you why If they say, 'Who are you gonna be babe? Who are you gonna be? Who are you gonna be baby With your sad shredded shoes Your rogue roadside blues That you sing so true But no one's singing along with you

Wild blue moon shone down on me But I sure ain't losin' sleep Long as I can finally see your face By your door, 'til my hands are sore Hell, I'll keep on knockin' more Until you let me know my place So tell me, tell me Do, do you let me in? Come on baby show me, show me Do, do you let me in? Don't turn your back and send me Home, home 'cause I don't wanna go 'Cause I don't really know If it's the same as I left it before It seems I don't know my self no more Clouds move in on a summer night Yet I believe the sun will shine And that I will find some light in you Look at my shoes, they're clearly stained Hey, I play the gambler's game Until I can see that your hand is true So tell me, tell me Do, do you let me in? Come on baby show me, show me Do, do you let me in? Don't turn your back and send me Home, home 'cause I don't wanna go 'Cause I don't really know If it's the same as I left it before It seems I don't know my self no more In my reflection I see a stranger I'm sure Crystal sky seems clear and wide And I see in Heaven's eyes As I take one last stride back home Sit right there, let me tell you my tale Let me know if I passed or failed And I will surely leave you alone So tell me, tell me Do, do you let me in? Come on baby show me, show me Do, do you let me in? Don't turn your back and send me Home, home 'cause I don't wanna go 'Cause I don't really know If it's the same as I left it before It seems I don't know my self no more

Well your highway It was blue as the sky As your feet lay Way too frightened to fly And your morning gaze I'll say it caught me by surprise While I was lying awake on cloud nine In your grassy green fields that shine So you wink and say We were bound for one another As the pouring rain It came crying through the thunder One thing remains We were once the greates lovers Now your love fades away like the daylight Fades behind the skyline Now my feet, they left the ground And I lost myself in your skies And my soul may never be found But I never asked to be that high No, I never asked to be that high So I let it go I let love die into the sun While upon the road So many years out on the run As time erodes I'll see the clock can't come undone So I get along and say Well hey, you never loved me anyway Now the time has come When everything is broken I'm the lonely one As the last of me was stolen You snuck right in You took my only golden token And I watched it in your hands as you played And you gambled it all away Now my feet, they left the ground And I lost myself in your skies And my soul may never be found But I never asked to be that high No, I never asked to be that high No, I never asked to be that high No, I never asked to be that high

I followed your sorrows Just as far as they would go, my friend Until my knees would bend And I saw all my weakest days Reflected in your face And that ain't something That I'm too proud to say I watch the stillness of the water As we drift into tomorrow And the dream beneath That I thought fell asleep Was dead and now I see Now I see Now I see after so many days gone by Now I see why This dream was never meant for you and I Now cast upon the lonesome midnight seas Summer, stay with me So I can feel the warmth upon my skin Give me shelter from the stinging rain So I can feel again Anything other than that too familiar pain And I watch the morning sun rise Across the blue skies But the love I used to hold so high above Falls down behind the sea And now I see Now I see after so many days gone by Now I see why This love was never meant for you and I Shipwrecked upon the bitter sands I swore I caught a glance Of a youthful love slipping from my hands And the treasure that we used to seek Now cast upon the seas And buried along the ocean bed Of long dead memories And I watch the broken storm clear The burning sun searing Down upon the sands where she'd lay with me Now there's nothing there to see And now I see Now I see after so many days gone by Now I see why This love was never meant for you and I

It was a wild sweet dawn She was coming to see me And as the sun burned on Oh she smiled so sweetly There she shined like a diamond in the doorway And she overtakes me All my senses leave me And I can barely speak But she's only a dream Just a dream She was only a dream Just a dream She was only a dream Just a dream She was there, I swear But gone forever now Just like a dream Just like a dream As the clouds departed And our souls were stranded Both lonesome hearted And both empty handed Though she lies by the light of the ocean Even in shade she shines And all her last few words unspoken They still haunt my mind But she's only a dream Just a dream She was only a dream Just a dream She was only a dream Just a dream She was there, I swear But gone forever now Just like a dream Just like a dream

There's only two ways your highway can go And there's too much that you want to know About this life that you'll never know About the world you weren't meant to know We all stand under the shadow of the old The frozen darkness of the rules of the road But old times are gone as new times unfold Let 'em go, let 'em go, let 'em go Let 'em go, let 'em go, let 'em go There may be love that you used to have Haunting the memories of your distant past You may look back and you try to laugh But sometimes it's the bitterness that forever lasts And there may be dreams that you may have had Broken down somewhere along the path The shattered pieces you still try to grasp Let 'em go, let 'em go, let 'em go Let 'em go, let 'em go, let 'em go You may not be who you thought you'd be From the times of your stubborn youth 'til your own eternity But fortunately the next day's page is clean So accept it with a smile and say 'that wasn't me' So let your hear burn forever now Yes let your soul embrace the weather somehow And when the mysteries of the wind, they still come around Let 'em go, let 'em go, let 'em go Let 'em go, let 'em go, let 'em go
10.
Come and take my heart Lord Tell me where to go Though you know that I'll go anywhere your wind blows As long as you lead me on back home Come and take my soul Lord Down to the deepest ocean floor And if your storm comes rollin', rollin' you know That I'll be there with arms wide open Come and take me lord Come and take me lord Come and take me lord Whoa come and take me lord Come and take my mind Lord This tattered twisted mind of mine Close and lock that prison door Whoa so I can leave that cell behind Come and take my body lord This weak and weary shattered frame And if you see me walking sore, walking sore Set me free And say I'll have no need for that frame again Come and take me lord Come and take me lord Come and take me lord Whoa come and take me lord Come and take my life lord This life I'm barely living now Take all the sins I've sinned before And maybe they're forgiven somehow Come and take all of me Set my lonesome spirit free Come and claim my friends and family Whoa and let them ride along with me Come and take me lord Come and take me lord Come and take me lord Whoa come and take me lord
