Track Name: Kiss Me Again
It feels like my body was made next to yours
‘cause it fits like a glove when I’m holding you close and this couldn’t be luck
I never knew it would feel like this--
But now that I do, I just want you to kiss me again

It feels like my heart was filled next to yours
‘cause it beats like a drum keeping time to your clock and this has to be fate
Oh I never knew it would feel like this--
But now that I do, I just want you to kiss me again

Kiss me again and again and again and again
Oh baby won’t you kiss me again
Kiss me again and again and again and again
Baby won’t you kiss me again

It feels like my mind just can’t keep off of yours
‘cause I’m lying awake wondering if you’re awake and you’re thinking of me

Oh I never knew it would feel like this--
But now that I do, I just want you to kiss me again
Track Name: Take Me to The River
When is my god gonna come for me?

Nobody knows where the time goes, slipping away through the windows
And nobody shows when they send home for you
But everyone knows that tomorrow could be their last day still breathing -- so
help me while I still can die a penitent man

Take me to the river, to the sea
Make me feel the shiver over me
Baby I’m a sinner coming clean
‘cause I’ll never know -- when is my god gonna come for me?

Look at my hands look at my heart, what was my plan what was my part? Tell me -- was I man with a false start, and you?
All of my debts and my bloodstones, will they go down with me father? Oh, this is how I must go, ready for the unknown

I wanna know if he’ll welcome my soul into heaven
I wanna know if I’ll be alone
Track Name: Hey Mama
A little closer please, so I can hold your hand up to my face
You know I’m ill at ease, and I could use some warmth inside this place.

Mama I’ve got a plan, I’m gonna be a man and make this right
Now won’t you take my hand, and promise that you’ll think of me tonight.

I wanna go back to my home
And I wanna be where a boy can be free
But I’ve got time I owe the state
And I don’t think that I can wait

Don’t turn your eyes from me, you know these walls they always make me cry
But ma I gotta see you look at me before we say goodbye.

Hey mama, it’s good to see ya
I’m gonna need ya to pray for your son
‘cause mama, I really miss ya
And I promise the disappointment is done
Track Name: Leaving You
I can’t go on like this anymore, restless when I am at your side
So I’m leaving home for a distant shore, or whatever I may find
Ten years ahead lies the picket fence, three kids and all of my happiness
But I can’t pretend in the present tense -- won’t you understand, love?

I am leaving you anyway
So why don’t you smile?
I will come back for you someday so miss me for a while

My dreams are teaming with emerald hills, while I’m wrapped in sheets of kelly green
So I gaze and lean into windowsills, where my truth might yet be seen
You know that I’m not a selfish guy, this is the best for both of us
But you’re still so beautiful in my eyes -- won’t you wait for me, love?

I am leaving you anyway
(I am stronger so I)
So why don’t you smile
(So I am letting you go)
I will come back for you someday
(Someday might never arrive)
So miss me for a while
Track Name: Let Me In
I was twenty-seven days late for my arrival
I tried twenty-seven ways to cut down my survival
Son, I know you can’t begin to understand, and I hope you’ll never have to know
what it’s like to be a drifting kind of man

So let me in, let me in and
Clean my sin, pull me from this cup I’m in
I want us to begin again, now I’ve come back

Windows clouded with your breath, fingers wipe away your tears
The hope you had for love that left, has dwindled through the years
One embrace can not erase all of your pain
I hope this moment’s not in vain

Let me in, I’m coming back, let me in, I’m coming, oh I’m coming back
Track Name: Jolene
Paychecks and cigarettes govern the kitchenette
she works the evenings, believing what her teachers always said:
"Jolene is very keen, that girl will live the dream--
Go to college, get away." But her boyfriend, in the prison, he’ll say:

Wait for me, one more day, and when I’m free,
Baby we will run away

John Paul sold Adderall and cocaine by the shopping mall
he made him a few bucks, now he’s locked up, serving time until next fall
Plans made in seventh grade, he left them all delayed
but she loves him, even so; so he begs her, Oh my darling don’t go

Wait for me, one more day, and when I’m free
Baby we will run away.
Baby we will run away.

Hey Jolene, you’re the one I want
To come with me when I leave this haunt
Baby sink or swim, we’ll be on our own
Cuz we’re leaving Ohio

I’m gonna make parole and, you’re gonna leave that hole, and
We’re gonna find a place where, nobody knows our faces
And I’ll find a job that pays and, you’ll study every day, and
Baby we got to go, they’ll never know, we’re leaving Ohio

Oh-oh-oh…
Baby we’re leaving Ohio - oh oh
Baby we’re leaving

Hey Jolene, you’re the one I want
To come with me when I leave this haunt
Baby sink or swim, we’ll be on our own
Cuz we’re leaving Ohio
