Track Name: Where You Go
I felt it my bones
I saw it too
The kind of lovin’ that you
Throw away just a little bit too soon

I was so young
And just too tamed
I bit my tongue in fear
Of losing everything, including you
Well, I lost you too

I felt just a little out of place
Like everyone else just shouldn’t stay
'Til she came in and
Stole my heart away

Then you showed me “Passenger Seat” by
Death Cab and all my worries in line
Just stepped to the side

From that moment on
I knew you’d stay

Then we broke into your parent’s house
The one by the river that we looked down
As the rain fell all around

You led me down the railroad
Close by where you lived in your first home
I want to go home
Where you go,
Might just be where I go

Where you go, I go

I felt it in my bones
I saw it too
Track Name: Moments
What’s a man
Without his land?
You got both legs but
Nowhere to stand

I made a plan
To head for sand
I’m learning now
That life has other plans

I’m looking for
An open door
I’ve been searching for
Something worth fighting for

But if I gave it all
Would I leave at all?
Or would I throw it all away
To stay next fall

So, just stay
Wait for me

Another late night drive
Down the 205
And the airport lights
Are a beautiful sight

Like the night we walked
And threw rocks at the docks
Off the bridge down on by
The Boones Ferry Climb

You just stayed
And waited for a minute
So you just stayed
And waited for a minute

Yeah, my old man
Did all he could
To raise me up
Like a church boy should

But what’s the point
To leave at night
If I’ll be back
By morning light?

So I just stayed
And waited for a minute
So I just stayed
And waited for a minute

So we just stayed
And waited for a minute
(Stay)
So we just stayed
And waited for a minute
(Stay)

So we just stayed
Just stayed
And waited for a moment
(Stay)
So we just stayed
Just stayed
And waited for a moment
Track Name: Northbound
Hold me just like you did
When you found me alone in my head
My wooden legs are worn down
I felt the ground and the rain it found

Hold me just like you did
On the back of the street where we lived
Your highway's wrapped up in ivy
Your mind, it bleeds your tumbling weeds

Darling, don't forget me

I told you it's harder to see
When your branches shadow your leaves
And I told you I don't have anywhere to go
I don't have anymore to grow
These days are getting old

Darling, don't forget me when I don't come back
Track Name: You'll Be Here Someday
The summers here must have got you down
Because you never really come around
I’ll be waiting just around the bay ‘cause
You’ll be here someday

I’ve wrote about a thousand lines
Just to remember half the time you were here
And you may not be now but
You’ll be here someday

Someday, some way

Rome around all across the town
Find a man that’ll get on down on his knee
But soon you’ll see that
You’ll be here someday

Sit around in your wedding gown
While you try to forget the sounds
From every summer that you’d run away, 'cause
You’ll be here someday
And you’ll be here to stay

Someday, some way
You leaving was so frustrating
But some things must change
And even though you ran away
To myself I'll say,
You'll be here someday

You were always just a tad bit wild
The kind of woman that’d bare my child
It didn’t matter
It was safe to say that
You’ll be here someday

Growing up was a big mistake
The kind of lovin’ that you throw away
I could lie, say, “I’m fine”, but we both know that
I will count the days ‘cause
You’ll be here someday
Track Name: West Virginia
West Virginia, don't mind me when
I say I am going away for good
Moving away like I should
Boy, if I could

West Virginia, I might say I'm fine
But I know I am losing my mind
One day I'm gonna walk

Right out these roots
That hold me down right here
Right out of these roots
That hold me down right here

West Virginia, don't mind me when
I flee to the town by the sea for good
Step out of these roots like I should
Boy, if I could

West Virginia, why don't you settle and stay?
Cause you all left me anyway
One day I'm gonna walk

Why do you root yourself
When you're leaving the ground?
Why do you root yourself
When you're leaving this town?

Why do you root yourself
When you're leaving the ground?
Why do you root yourself
When you're leaving the ground?
