Track Name: 1. Deeper Kind of Love
The kind of love
You have to give
Strong enough
To overcome
Callin’ me
Callin’ me
Back home
Where I wanna be

It’s unavoidable (x2)
In a deeperin kind of love

The actions right
Feels good to play
Jam it out
See what mama say

World deals
Toughest hand
Pushing me down
Rise again
Rise above
Track Name: 2. All Grown Up
Go ahead and leave
Have all the fun in the world for me
The strangest of needs
Stems from our infancy

Chorus:
There’s no reason why
Just close one eye (repeat)

Choking on the bit, broken by the load
We carry too many things
Down other folks roads
We talk like adults, then move like a child, point out all our faults, hide the wounds with a smile

Chorus

Hold on to truth
In lieu of your youth
Your emotions will lead you the right way to go
Just can not let them get out of control

Go ahead and leave
Have all the fun in the world for me
The strangest of needs
Stem from our infancy
Track Name: 3. Luv With ‘U’
The letters in a word are significant
Some words have four while others have three
Well I should understand how they’re different
I was the regional champion of the spelling bee

When I spell ‘love’ I never use an ‘O’
Just L-U-V, I never end in an ‘E’
Why in the word would I ever use four
Letters when I only ever need three

Some people spell ‘love’ with an ‘O’
Well I’m a pretty good speller too but I
Never spell ‘love’ with an ‘O’ (oh no)
I spell ‘love’ with ‘U’

L-U-V looks right to me even
Though you won’t find it in the dictionary
It’s a very nice thought that ‘U’ would be
Inside of a word suggesting intimacy

When I spell ‘love’ three letters wide
The ‘L’ reminds me of my left arm
And ‘V’ is like my arm on the other side
When they wrap around ‘U’ to keep ‘U’ warm

Some people spell love with an ‘O’
Well I’m a pretty good speller too but I
Never spell ‘love’ with an ‘O’ (oh no)
I spell ‘love’ with ‘U’
I spell ‘love’ with ‘U’
Track Name: 4. Dumb Down
(Dumb down)
Every month the bills repeat
(Dumb down)
And the moon get full

(Dumb down)
If we want to get the ends to meet
(Dumb down)
We gots to push and pull

(Dumb down)
I know your time is sacred
(Dumb down)
You got lots to do

(Dumb down)
Darlin’ I don’t want to take it
(Dumb down)
I want to give it to you

CHORUS: Dumb down 4x

(Dumb down)
Stop makin’ them complications
(Dumb down)
Start makin’ that love

(Dumb down)
Don’t be layin’ down stipulations
(Dumb down)
Let’s be layin’ down love

CHORUS: Dumb down 4x

BRIDGE:
Don’t be tellin’ your pretty sister
Cause you know that’s wrong
But should you tire of my scruffy whiskers
She can come along

Dumb down (repeat over groove)
Track Name: 5. Perfect Match
This is the best night I ever had
I’m sure we’re a perfect match
You love physics as much as me
What a fantastic catch
You picked a perfect restaurant
Your profile said you would
There’s nothing more that I could want
So far so good

Chorus:
I can’t wait to get your clothes off
And see you in the nude
I can’t wait to get your clothes off
You got me in the mood
I’ve been fantasizing all night long
And I can’t stand any more
I can’t wait to get your clothes off
On my living room floor

I loved your profile page so much
I memorized every line
An aeronautic engineer
Who loves good food and wine
Top of your class at MIT
Your email ends dot gov
You trained a world class Frisbee dog
Baby I know I’m in love

I can’t wait to get your clothes off
And see you in the nude
I can’t wait to get your clothes off
You got me in the mood
I’ve been fantasizing all night long
And I can’t stand any more
I can’t wait to get your clothes off
On my living room floor

I’ve been fantasizing all night long
And I can’t stand any more
I can’t wait to get your clothes off
On my living room floor
On my living room floor
Track Name: 6. Blood In The River
All this gasoline pumps my heart
Burnin’ that book is a hell of a start
Out on that bayou your love will drown
Callin’ on your kin that spell is a spark
Cryin’ my love and I’m all bled out

Don’t drink the blood that’s down in the river
The devil’s throwin’ dirt in my eyes…I’m a sinner
Holy rollin’ love, is it enough
A slave man’s wage can’t buy you dinner

Don’t drink the blood that’s down in the river
The devil’s throwin’ dirt in my eyes…I’m a sinner
Kiss you on the forehead, dip you in the red
All my lovers layin’ on the riverbed

Down on Congo Square there’s (blood in the stone)
That’s a man’s story that (needs to be told)
His love went upstream, went down in the water
Finally in the afterlife they get to be lovers
Track Name: 7. Miles Away From You
Have mercy on my soul
Don’t make me beg for more
I’m more thirsty now than I’ve ever been before
Oh my good Lord

Sweat drips down my face
Have I fallen so far from grace
Have you forgotten that I built this fuckin’ place
That shelters you

Only love you got
Is your love for control
I said there’s got to be more
But who am I trying to fool
I ain’t got any
I ain’t got any
I ain’t got any
More love for you

All these childhood dreams
What I thought love would be
Seems you proved to me
That they were never true

Only love you got
Is your love for control
I said there’s got to be more
But who am I trying to fool
I ain’t got any
I ain’t got any
I ain’t got any
More love for you

Oh you’ll no longer reign over me
I see the dawn… and you’re not there
When the sun comes up I’ll be miles away
I’ll be miles away from you
Track Name: 9. Darling Where Are You?
One night in old New Orleans
Down on Bourbon Street
I went to a fortune teller
Here’s what she told me

She said, “Your love is out there,
Seek and you will find.”
So I went searching
For what is surely mine

Tallahassee, Chattanooga
I’ve searched the whole world through
Kansas City, Kalamazoo
Darling where are you?

New Year’s Eve in Paris
Was sure I’d find you there
From the top of the Eiffel Tower
I couldn’t see you anywhere

I combed the city
Guess that you had gone
Knew that you were waiting
So I carried on

Casablanca, Barcelona
I’ve searched the whole world through
Copenhagen, Budapest
Darling where are you?

One hot night in Cairo
Touring Pharaoh’s tomb
I got so excited
Knew I’d see you soon

I walked the desert
I waited up ‘til dawn
Still I could not find you
So I carried on

Santiago, Buenos Aires
I’ve searched the whole world through
Caledonia, Katmandu
Darling where are you?

Oh fortune teller
Did you lie to me?
I’ve been the whole world over
Where can he be?
Track Name: 10. We’re Gonna Like Us Better
I can’t seem to do a damn thing right, as you point out every day
I try and try to treat you right, but you got nothin’ good to say
I come home with my little paycheck, find my stuff out on the lawn
You’re gonna like me a whole lot better when I’m gone

You don’t like the clothes I wear, you don’t like the way I do my hair
Somehow everything I do is wrong
Baby I got things to do, I can’t sit around and wait on you
You’re gonna like me a whole lot better when I’m gone

I miss the way you used to hold me
The flirting used to drive me wild
The dreams we shared completely sold me
We both found our inner child

Now we’re just a ship that’s sinking, neither knows what the other’s thinking
Now we’ve even lost our favorite song
We don’t dance, we don’t go out, all we do is scream and shout
We’ll like us a whole lot better when we’re gone
Track Name: 11. You're Only Foolin'
I’ve got one foot out the door
I have no time
I don’t want you anymore
I’ll leave at the drop of a dime

Chorus:
You’re only foolin’ around
You ain’t good for my health
You’re not foolin’ this town
You’re only foolin’ yourself

I’ve got anchors on my shoulders
I have to empathy
I don’t want this weight to make me colder
I thought you knew this was me

Chorus

We can shoot this down, it ain’t set in stone
When we come back around there was nobody home
This is the fuel to the fool you thought I was
I’m leaving you because

You ain’t even foolin’ yourself!
Track Name: 12. Cora’s Song
You know the first time I saw you
I fell in love with you
I know you don’t believe me honey, but I swear it’s true

You just took my breath away
I stopped right where I stood
That picture’s etched in my mind, and it’s there for good

You always say maybe, you never say yes
But then you never say no
You want me to keep coming back I guess
And you know I can’t let go

Here everybody calls you Kitten
That’s just part of the game
But you’re an Iowa sweetheart, and Cora is your name

Your job is making a fantasy
And I love it so much
But my job is looking, and never to touch

I’ll call you Kitten out in the room
I’ll call you Cora when we’re alone
All I can do is rent you, I can never own

There’s no one else like you, they can’t come close
When you work that big brass pole
Then you took me in back, and danced on my lap
And you captured my soul

I’ll always remember to tip you
And call you by your stage name
But that don’t mean I don’t love you, honey
But that don’t mean I don’t love you, honey
But that don’t mean I don’t love you, Cora my heart’s aflame
Track Name: 13. Dissolve
I wore out the sweater that you gave me the winter after you left.
I worked in it, I slept in it, I walked in it. Until it dissolved into tattering thread.

I guess I never got over the way I felt with it on. I could feel your arms on me, wrapped around the wool, pressing against my skin.

(Goodbye lovely one, maybe someday we can fly.)

Some nights I’d wake up in the dark and smell you in the colors and in the center of it, holding me like you did in December before you left.

And I’d wait in the darkness, holding my breath, hoping you’d appear. A hover apparition, a tortured vision of the love I’d lost.

(Goodbye lovely one, maybe someday we can fly.)

How many nights did I sit and watch the ice melt in my glass, slowly disappearing and dissolving until I drank it down. Absorbing the alcohol into my skin, wondering where you were and what you were doing.
Track Name: 14. First Time
First time I saw you
I could tell
You were somebody I wanted to know
Something about you, well it worked just right
I said I want to spend forever looking in those eyes
The first time I saw you, I told you so

Chorus:
Might be the first time, but it won’t be the last
Don’t be shy babe give it a chance
Step into the future, forget the past
Might be the first time, but it won’t be the last

Had no idea
We were just coasting along
Suddenly sidelined we began to fall
Now I have to catch my breath when you walk through the door
Every single day I keep a-lovin’ you more
Now that we’ve got forever, let’s go and have us a ball

Chorus

Once we counted pennies, hoping for a dollar bill
These days we make something out of nothing
And babe I’ve got a feeling that we always will

Yeah I am such a sucker for the way you smile
Come sit down beside me and stay a while
I’ve got that first time feeling and I hope it never goes away

Chorus
Track Name: 15. Funk-a-Billy
He liked to drink his whiskey
He liked to pack a bowl
He would tell funky stories ‘bout the godfather of soul

His name was Billy
Billy Triplett
One is just too lonely
Two just ain’t enough
Ya gotta Triplett

He’s a Jaggerbomb, he’s a water bong
He’s the reason we got so fucked up and wrote this song

It’s all for Billy
Billy Triplett
One is just too lonely
Two just ain’t enough
Ya gotta Triplett

He would crack a smile
Tell a dirty joke
He gave the best hugs
And rolled the perfect smoke

It’s funk-a-Billy
Billy Triplett
One is just too lonely
Two just ain’t enough
Ya gotta Triplett

He left Prince standing in the purple rain at Paisley Park
Just to hang out with Rob Atwood and Jamey Clark

We love you Billy
Billy Triplett
One is just too lonely
Two just ain’t enough
Ya gotta Triplett

Billy checked out early like we’ll do this song
Cause it’s three minutes thirty-three seconds long

We love you Billy
Billy Triplett
One is just too lonely
Two just ain’t enough
Ya gotta Triplett
Track Name: 16. Singing to Myself
I’m so lost I don’t know where to go
Stuck in a rut I’m so emotional
Since you left me been so alone
All night long just sitting by the phone, by the phone

Why did you go and leave me
And treat me so unkind
Why couldn’t you believe me
About to lose my mind

Now I wander lonely through this town
Wind so cold the leaves are turning brown
Since you put my love up on the shelf
I just sit here singing to myself

I should have seen this coming
I do this every time
Why couldn’t I be stronger
Now that you’re not mine

Since you left me I’ve lost all my faith
I’ve turned into one hopeless case
Friends try to help I push them all away
Maybe I just need a holiday, holiday

Maybe I’ll pack my suitcase
And jump aboard that train
No matter where it ends up
I’ll still be singing your name

Maybe you will come back to me
If you do I’ll make you so happy
There’s no need for you to be alone
I’ll still be here waiting by the phone, by the phone
Track Name: 17. Your Love Is Driving Me Crazy
Chorus:
Your love is driving me crazy
Your love is causing me to lose my mind
I’m not the person I used to be
Since you pushed me to insanity
I left lucidity behind

Well, when I took a shower
I left on all my clothes
I went to comb my hair
Hit my head and broke my nose
While going for a walk
I would up breaking all my toes

I wish that you could really see
How insane you’re making me

Chorus

I was driving my car
On the wrong side of the road
Fell asleep in the bedroom
But it wasn’t my abode
Was singing you a love song
And I sounded like a toad

Like a werewolf at full moon
You’ve got me acting like a loon

I called you on the telephone
And dialed my mom instead
Was writing with a pencil
That didn’t have any lead
Made myself a sandwich
But forgot to add the bread

I am stumbling like a klutz
The doctor says I’m clinically nuts

Chorus
Track Name: 18. Arcana
Do you mind your lover
Talking in her sleep
Revealing all the secrets
That the darkness tries to keep

What if I would dare you
And save you from yourself
Or maybe you would care to
Be safe with someone else

Chorus:
As below above
This dream has been decrypted
Let’s take the veil of love
And lift it

Walking into history
Talking in our sleep
How beautiful this mystery
And the faith you had to leap

Showing you the answers
In the patterns and the clues
Floating through Arcana
Shattering the truth

Chorus

Breaking into morning
The early rays of dawn
Waking from Arcana
This dream will linger on

Chorus
