Track Name: Wreck of Me
Wreck of Me

We used to ride that washed out road
Headed for the bright lights of town
With the red dust ghosts and the raw fence posts
Shakin’ like a born again when the spirit comes down
With the moon so bright, we’d cut the lights
Just listen to the static on the radio
Till some song burned clean or we made it alright
Down that washed out road and home
She said “it ain’t gonna make a wreck,
It ain’t gonna make a wreck
It ain’t gonna make a wreck
Out of me”

If I head out tonight till the light of day
With just a tune and a taste for something like sin
They say sometimes you have to lose
Before you turn around around and win
Well some might say that I lost my way
Got tangled in a couple bad turns
But I made it this far tailing one lost star
And I appreciate your concern
But it ain’t gonna make a wreck
It ain’t gonna make a wreck
It ain’t gonna make a wreck
Out of me

Sidewinder out of control
Broke down and left by the road

Some songs it’s true never quite make it through
They just get buried under static and snow
I said I wanted to leave her but we both knew
She was the one who had to go
And in my dreams, she always gets away clean
And slips across the borderline
Fine as dust and lit up like the night
Still free I guess, or at least not mine
But it ain’t gonna make a wreck
It ain’t gonna make a wreck
It ain’t gonna make a wreck
Out of me

Wreck of me
Track Name: Your Only One
Your Only One

Come let me spin you around
I’ll be your shadow
Under the bright lights
And no one will know where we’ve been
Out on the edge of town
Driving that same road
That we travelled down
Watching the markers flash by
My love with the wandering eye

And you move so easy no iron fence could hold you
Like the tall grass sways when the day is done
Play that old song one more time now
Make me believe I’m your only one

Out on a Saturday night
The lights on the dance floor
Don’t shine quite as brightly
As when I first walked through that door
But ain’t it a hell of a note
They’re playing that old song
But the timing is all wrong
And the sweet words just sound like a lie
To my love with the wounded eyes

And you move so familiar you’re hard to let go of
And where would I go if I knew how to leave?
So spin me round slowly till the dancing is done
I’ll let you believe I’m your only one

Come turn that wheel once again
If we could make Utah
And the old Moke Dugway
We’d park and just watch the world spin
Moving in three quarter time
We’ll put to rest all the worst and the best
And we’ll dance till the sun starts to rise
My love with the light in your eyes

And the dancing is easy when there’s no fence to hold you
The tall grass sways and the day is done
Play that old song one more time now
Make me believe I’m your only one
Make me believe I’m your only one
