Track Name: We Go Together
Lunch break on payday I cashed my check
Bought a weeks worth of diapers, pick six, a carton of cigarettes

Some guys just sing about it down here we’re living it every day
The bills and debts that pile up, a restless hunger eats your insides away

It all comes undone
You run, I run
We are one, we go together

Got an apartment by the bus stop so we don’t have to have a car
Take the 29 uptown, the 19 across the walk it ain’t that far

Gotta find a new job with benefits better hours, better pay
The doctor at the clinic said the baby be here by may

It all comes undone
You run, I run
We are one, we go together
It all comes undone
She runs, I run
We are one, we go together

As dark as it’s gotten it ain’t dark yet
Ain’t ready to let the dream die or live with those regrets

Moonlight on the fire escape tempting me to go
These hard promises we made how could we ever know?

It all comes undone
You run, I run
We are one, we go together
It all comes undone
She runs, I run
We are one, we go together
Track Name: Where the River Used To Be
In the cup of the dark mountains these fire-lit faces shine
Like the last remnants of the sun since declined
If i could bend back time to when this family was whole
Before the light was torn and scattered - now it's all we know.

I want to be whole and I want to be free
But there’s no going back where the river used to be

You can cling, you can try to capture, the rapture of youth
Grab at glory with your greasepaint, some spark with your costumes
But when its gone it's gone like quicksilver out of your palm
Young hearts, young minds are gonna sing these songs

Now we move in the afterglow of dreams
There’s no going back where the river used to be

See the fishing boats in the harbor
Captain praying to raise to raise the wind
You could take off tonight - anywhere you desire
But there's no going back to where we've been

After the rain the boulevard was glistening
I was listening to every word you said i swear
You don't have to tell me these are dangerous times - i know it's true
I've seen the same force that brought us together tear us apart and rip us in two

I want to be whole
Just gimme some peace
But there's no going back

I can lift you up like a saint
You can wrap your loving arms around me
But there’s no going back where the river used to be
