Track Name: Sad Parade
This is your life out on display
there on the front porch
every night and every day
you never know if he's gone away to stay
is today the day?
It's like a Sad Parade
I see it every day
Mama's got a shotgun
Daddy's got a knife
baby got a beating
'cause she wasn't "acting right"
she got in the way
she'll have to pay
It's like a Sad Parade
I see it every day
Billy and Billy junior had a plan to strike it rich
selling dope out of the house
this will go off without a hitch
until the day they took him away
It's like a Sad Parade
I see it every day
Mama's got a shotgun
Daddy's got a knife
baby got a beating
'cause she wasn't "acting right"
she got in the way
she'll have to pay
It's like a Sad Parade
I see it every day
It's like a Sad Parade
I see it every day
One car leaves, One car arrives
Mama screams, baby cries
day after day
all hope fades away
I hate to say
Horn honks and the rooster crows
dog barks and the thunder rolls
every day is the same
you know it's gonna rain
on The Sad Parade
I see it every day
It's like a Sad Parade
I see it every day
Track Name: Lucky
A hundred degrees on the inside
the roof is caving in
another wave is coming
you haven't got the strength to swim
That's why I feel Lucky
fire for light
That's why I feel Lucky
to sleep through the night
That's why I feel Lucky
Table for food
That's why I feel Lucky
not searchin' for you...
There's no water and there's no shelter
and your daughter, she didn't come home
there's no relief for your sorrow
you're just hanging on, holding on for hope
you keep hanging on, holding on for hope
you're just hanging on, holding on for hope
you keep hanging on, holding on for hope
you're just hanging on, holding on for hope
you keep hanging on, holding on for hope
you're just hanging on, holding on for hope
you keep hanging on, holding on for hope
That's why I feel Lucky
fire for light
That's why I feel Lucky
to sleep through the night
That's why I feel Lucky
Table for food
That's why I feel Lucky
not searchin' for you...
Track Name: Would You?
If I were to tell you I was going away
would you get down on your knees and beg me to stay
for a day, for a day
If I were to pack up and jump the next train
would you run along side it, calling my name
would you cry, would you cry
Baby you know I ain't goin' nowhere
I talk a good game
I pretend I don't care
I don't care, but I do
I do
If I were to fall down if I couldn't walk
If I couldn't see and I couldn't talk
would you stay
would you stay anyway
Baby you know I ain't goin' nowhere
I talk a good game
I pretend I don't care
I don't care, but I do
I do, I do, I do
If I were to play russian roulette
would you steal the bullet
save me from myself
from myself
from myself
Track Name: Just Kids
We're like a broken tradition
we're like a family without ties
full of lies and suspicion
We were just kids
living life like we did
we were sisters we were partners in crime
We made big plans, we'd move to the Canyon
Just like Joni, Mama Cass and Carol King
We got matching tattoos
cause that's what you do
when you're young and free your friends are everything
now we're like a broken tradition
we're like a family without ties
full of lies and suspicion
and I'm not sorry that I never said goodbye
and I won't ask for your forgiveness
I know that you won't ask for mine
that's just how it goes sometimes
yeah we were just kids
living life like we did
we'd talk of growing old together side by side
until that one day, along came Charlie
stole your heart but I was the one who got away
on the back of his bike
straight off to a new life
I never looked back
never looked back until today
now we're like a broken tradition
we're like a family without ties
full of lies and suspicion
and I'm not sorry that I never said goodbye
and I won't beg for your forgiveness
I know that you won't beg for mine
that's just how it goes sometimes
we try so hard
to leave it all behind
to leave it all behind
yeah leave it all behind
but you wrote a letter to my mother
to let her know that she should be ashamed
to raise a daughter, teach her what she taught her
me an Ma just laughed and fed it to the flames
I moved to the Canyon, you went on to marry him
you and Charlie living life so happily
yeah that's how it panned out
you got my man now
and I'm not sorry that I never said goodbye
now we're like a broken tradition
we're like a family without ties
full of lies and suspicion
and I'm not sorry that I never said goodbye
Track Name: Detroit or Buffalo
People expect you to fall
Hit that same old wall
Really they don't want to help you at all
They talk behind your back today
Shake their heads and say
"Well, I always knew that the girl
would come to no good anyway"

Better pack your things and go
Detroit or Buffalo
Anybody want to know where,
you don't know, you don't know
God knows, everybody gotta go sometime
So I'm taking this train to end of the line
Missing every mile that friend of mine

Haven't been too well myself
A lot of time up on the shelf
Saying I don't need help
when I do, yes I do
That's okay I'll be just fine
A lot of friends, a little wine
Still I wish I could see you again sometime

Better pack your things and go
Detroit or Buffalo
Anybody want to know where,
I don't know, I don't know
God knows, everybody gotta go sometime
So I'm taking this train to end of the line
Missing every mile that friend of mine
Missing every mile that friend of mine

It's hard to open up the door
Like you've done so many times before
Sometimes you feel like you just can't
do it anymore
so take a chance and take a train
Out into the pouring rain
when all you've got is your suitcase
full of pain

Better pack your things and go
Detroit or Buffalo
Anybody want to know where,
I don't know, I don't know
God knows, everybody gotta go sometime
So I'm taking this train to end of the line
Missing every mile that friend of mine
Missing every mile that friend of mine
Track Name: Stray
Why you gotta come around lookin' all sad
like you finally figured out you really had it made
looking like you ate eatin' nothin' in days
and if I'd just let you in you'd make it up for all your sorry ways
But it isn't that simple, boy you know it's true
I kinda lost my mind on the day that I lost you
But it isn't that simple, boy you know it's true
I kinda lost my mind on the day that I lost you
Never stopped looking for you wanderin' around
wearing holes in my boots, up and down this town
I left the door open hopin' you'd come back
say "sorry for leaving you hangin' on like that"
But it isn't that simple, boy you know it's true
I kinda lost my mind on the day that I lost you
But it isn't that simple, boy you know it's true
I kinda lost my mind on the day that I lost you
Baby why'd you come back?
Maybe I don't want you back.
Baby won't you come back to me?
Baby why'd you come back?
Maybe I don't want you back.
Baby won't you come back to me?
Why you gotta come around lookin' all sad
I guess you finally figured out you really had it made
you're such a cool cat surprising me like that
you know I'll never turn you out, never let you be a stray
But it isn't that simple, boy you know it's true
I kinda lost my mind on the day that I lost you
No it isn't that simple, boy you know it's true
I kinda lost my mind on the day that I lost you
Baby why'd you come back?
Maybe I don't want you back.
Baby won't you come back to me?
Baby why'd you come back?
Maybe I don't want you back.
Baby won't you come back to me?
Track Name: Laguna
2339 miles from Detroit city
to the land of fallen angels and earthquakes
where the people are so pretty
I could be closer to you now
I map it out and I write it down
but there's no time and there's no way
I was just missing you today
Everybody's asking where you are
and how you've been
While I've been counting down day by day
'til you come back again
I could be closer to you now
I map it out and I write it down
but there's no time and there's no way
I was just missing you today
How many days has it been
are you settling down are you fitting in
have you chosen the sun over the snow
the Hollywood sign
over the burned down Detroit skyline
Beverly Hills
over the broke down rusty steel mill
or Venice Beach
over the fair down on 4th street
The L.A. scene over me
are you over me?
The L.A. scene over me
are you over me?
I wait it out I'll give you time
I'll be right here holding the line
But I should warn you I might let go
and if I do there's something you should know
it's only 2339 miles to Detroit City
Track Name: Happiness
I remember driving in our car
underneath the Colorado stars
driving so fast and so far
away from the place that made us who we are
It doesn't matter how far you go
Trouble can swallow you whole
and It takes a lifetime
takes a lifetime to let go
takes a lifetime to let go
You go from bliss to misery
with every little thing you learn about me
but I can't change who I am
so we'll find our way or we'll find the end
'cause It doesn't matter how far you go
Trouble can swallow you whole
and It takes a lifetime
takes a lifetime to let go
takes a lifetime to let go
Well my friends I must confess
I worked real hard, I've done my best
Just to lay all these troubles to rest
I took my time, probably crossed the line
only to find
only to find happiness
Times get tough and things get crazy
don't waste your time trying to save me
stand by my side, I'll stand by yours
I'll do my best to lay it all to rest
I'll do my time, probably cross the line
only to find
only to find happiness
cause it doesn't matter how far you go
trouble can swallow you whole
and it takes a lifetime
it takes a lifetime to let go...
