Track Name: Missionary Street
i woke up in the missionary street motel with a broken heart
and i didn't leave my bed at all that day
yeah i woke up with a fat black eye and a suitcase torn apart
and i realized all my youth had gone away

oh i'm not young anymore
oh no no no
i'm not young anymore

i cut my teeth on a couple undercover brunettes on a southbound train
and they helped me kick my confidence to hell
now all my money, honey, all my gold fell out of my life like rain
and i had to tip my cap and wish them well

oh i'm not rich anymore
oh no no no
i'm not rich anymore

and everyone i know says i should know better
and everywhere i go there's a broken vending machine
and when i leave a place it ain't about the weather
but i wish it was and not some old pipe dream

a big moon's shinin like a blinkin yellow light over missionary st. tonight
and i'm trying like a beast to not turn around
but every time i close my eyes i'm running from another fight
is that so much worse than just laying down

but i'm not down anymore
oh no no no
i'm not down anymore
Track Name: I Won't Move
Music
I can hear it
It sings to me
With a voice so sweet

And I won't move, I won't move
You know I won't move

So let me be
On this earth that sleeps
Wide awake
With nothing to fake

'Cause I'm no fool, I'm no fool
You know I'm no fool

Music
Can you hear it
It sings to me
With a voice so sweet

And I won't move, I won't move
You know I won't move
Track Name: Concord Line
I've been awake for a day and a night and a day
Walking around in the cigarette sand on the ground
Killing the time in the quietest places I find
A jack in a box, trying hard not to stare at my watch

Every trail every nightmare I've sweated and failed
Still growing stale underneath stacks of unopened mail
And it all falls down - every chapter and verse in my mouth
Yeah it all falls down like proverbial rain on the ground

I'm thinking of all of the pages I've burned
Some of them well past gone
There's isn't always a lesson to learn
But there's almost always a song
Oh Oh I'll be fine
Waiting on the Concord Line

Seventeen trains
Back and forth in the heat and the rain
Two more to go
Got my ticket inside of my coat
What is my home?
Is it here or is it where I'm going?
I hope it's understood
That I waited as long as I could

A man with a magazine stares at the track and wonders what's taking so long, but there isn't always a lesson to learn.
There's almost always a song.
Oh oh I'll be fine
Waiting on the Concord Line
Track Name: Gold
i was trying to find my
heart in a cardboard box
of old notebooks and
graying photographs when
all my headaches
all my excuses were
blown sideways like
dustbowl symphonies

and i don't know if what i find
is gonna save my life
but it's gold
on nights like tonight

in the mouth of my driveway
under a paper sign
i went and laid down my
grass stained memories and
in this twilight
with all these failing stars
i found redemption
or something close enough

and i don't know if what i find
is gonna save my life
but it's gold
on nights like tonight
