Track Name: big town
i'm sittin with an old friend tryin to do it all again
everything is in place, but it's the wrong place
bring the lights down. fill up the seats
the screen flickers and we'll see what we're gonna see

well you see me in this big town and i see you now

oh lord i ain't prepared for this
you can sit down beside me if you wish
long black curls are fallin round your head
and whiskey in a jar and i'm at good as dead

well you see me in this big town and i found you now
well you found me in this big town and i found you and love you now

i'm sittin with a new friend and when i speak
i'm a fool with words but it don't mean a thing
i want to know you and know who i am
in your arms and in your plan

well you see me in this big town and i found you now
well you found me in this big town and i found you and love you now
Track Name: palisades
saw the sunlight slip away
on the palisades
i could stay here for a while
i'm a little child

though i put this place on trial
the city shrinks with every mile
and i know that very soon
it'll fit inside my room

hear the darkened riverside
speaking softly while i ride
and in the middle of the night
i am blind to city light
