Track Name: Gone Too Long
Gone Too Long

There’s a voice inside my head
Screaming “you’ve been gone too long”
and in the morning it wakes me up
like a wet duvet
where can a namaste?

I had a dream that I could not wake
I slept for days and days
and in the morning
I could feel you there
I could feel your hair
I could feel you there

I had a dream that I could fly
I’ve never been so high
and in the morning
I came crashing down
but when I hit the ground
I didn’t make a sound
Track Name: Come Get Me Eyes
Come Get Me Eyes

Sometimes you’re with me
sometimes you won’t
Sometimes you trust me
sometimes you don’t
But I keep trusting you
and all the little things you do

When I get weary I pick up the phone
till the operator can make me feel less alone
She won’t let me down
and she’s almost always around

I’m the one but I’ve been in disguise
She pushes me away the more she tries
with those come get me eyes

Feel like a sailor
between two docks
More like a rabbit
between two hawks
Sink your talons in
It’s the only way we can win

I’m the one but I’ve been in disguise
She pushes me away the more she tries
with those come get me eyes

I’m the one but I’ve been in disguise
She pushes me away the more she tries
with those come get me eyes
Track Name: Buyin' a Truck
Buyin’ a Truck

I’ve been dreaming about buyin’ a truck
and pickin’ you up at the airport
and I’ve been workin’ since I saw you last
So I can afford the gas

It’s been so long (too long)
It’s been so long (too long)

I keep on having this recurring dream
about Highway 17
I’ve been dreaming about buyin’ a truck
and flyin’ you out to me

We can take a break in Wawa
and sip the summer air
I know a place where we can stay in Thunder Bay
and watch the clouds roll in

I’ve been dreaming about buyin’ a truck
and pickin’ you up at the airport
and I’ve been workin’ since I saw you last
and I’m hoping my cash will last

It’s been so long (too long)
It’s been so long (too long)
I need you here
I need you here

I’ve been dreamin’ about buyin’ a truck
and pickin’ you up at the airport

I’ve been dreamin’ about buyin’ a truck
and gettin’ it stuck
and pushin’ my luck with you
