Track Name: Gone Away
The night is dark and surely
The fire's dyin' early
The wood cracks in the wind

Gone, gone away now
Bones, child go now
Gone, gone away now
Gone

Get up gal it's time to go
Don't you tell me no, no
The red moon rises in the sky

Gone, gone away now
Bones, child go now
Gone, gone away now
Gone

Remember good ole Johnny
He thought he was so funny
He climbed that hill but never did return

On this very evening
His mother caught a feeling
Of cold, lonesome worry in her bones

If you learn the way child
You will learn to stay child
But for now you must go, go, go
If you learn the way child
You will learn to stay child
But for now you must go, go, go
Go, go, go

Gone away, gone away
Over that mountain is where I'll stay
Gone away, gone away
Over that mountain is where I'll stay

You've got your head about you
You've got your clues
Your mother's waiting, waiting on you

Oooohhhhhh, woop

If you learn the way child
You will learn to stay child
But for now you must go, go, go
If you learn the way child
You will learn to stay child
But for now you must go, go, go
Go, go, go

Gone, gone away now
Bones, child go now
Gone, gone away now
Gone
Track Name: A Woman is a Well
A woman, she's a well
Where you will drown before she'll tell
You my advice, pray for rain
'Cos a woman is a well and her love a hurricane

My woman, she's a war
And I'm battle broke and all but on the floor
Now every drop I drink I think I fall upon my sword
A woman, she's a war
Though why I may not live to say for sure
Though why I may not live to say...

A woman, she's a well
Where you will drown before she'll tell
You my advice, pray for rain
'Cos a woman is a well and her love a hurricane

My woman, she got no time
Sure as hell I give her all of mine
And bury in my pockets some last tattered peace of mind
A woman, she got no time
Still I'm missing all that I can't find
Still I miss it all

A woman, she's a well
Where you will drown before she'll tell
You my advice, pray for rain
'Cos a woman is a well and her love a hurricane

My woman, she's a queen
Ain't a one like her I've ever seen
Ain't no one like her, even in my dreams
A woman, she's a queen
You should hear the quiet way she sings
You should hear the quiet way she sings
You should hear the quiet way...

A woman, she's a well
Where you will drown before she'll tell
You my advice, pray for rain
'Cos a woman is a well and her love a hurricane
Track Name: Interlude
I'm waiting for the time
Waiting for the time
Waiting for the time

You are so fine, get away
You are so fine, get away
You are so fine, get away
You are so fine

She's waiting there for me
Waiting there for me
Waiting there for me

You are so fine, get away
You are so fine, get away
You are so fine, get away
You are so fine
Track Name: Summer Song
Little yellow houses
Underneath a bright blue sky, oh my
Running cross the beaches
Tripping in the baking sand, oh and

Summer is here, summer is hot
The wind is from the land

Night on the veranda
Friends conversing quietly, all three
Walking past a couple
Kissing by the live oak tree, oh me

Evening is come, evening is cool
The wind is from the sea

I met your sister one hot afternoon
She's tall, her car is yellow
And I could see how close she was to you
Same smile, different sunglasses

All of your inside jokes, I want to know them too
Track Name: Matches and Wood
Well you say you don't know what you did wrong
Let me show you now
So sit back and listen up and watch me close
You're gonna learn some how
See this heart right here does not fix itself
So go on get up and go
The distance and time will fade the memories
Til I'm the one that you used to know

The distance and time will fade the memories
Til I'm the one that you used to know

Well I sit alone on the shore
As time slips down the stream
You say you want to be my friend
Define what friendship used to mean
Don't do that for me
That's not what I need
I need you out, out for good
I need some matches and some wood
So I can burn everything
All my thoughts still lingering
And we can stop singing the songs we keep singing

We can stop, stop singing the songs we keep singing
We can stop, stop singing the songs we keep singing

I don't know why you're not gone by now
Go on and be on your way
I don't care if you leave me here alone
You've got no reason to stay

Well I sit alone on the shore
As time slips down the stream
You say you want to be my friend
Define what friendship used to mean
Don't do that for me
That's not what I need
I need you out, out for good
I need some matches and some wood
So I can burn everything
All my thoughts still lingering
And we can stop singing the songs we keep singing

We can stop, stop singing the songs we keep singing
We can stop, stop singing the songs we keep singing

I don't know why you're not gone by now
Go on and be on your way
I don't care if you leave me here alone
You've got no reason to stay
