Track Name: Easy Winter
I’m hanging up my heavy coat;
Another season comes and goes
Of sleeping with the windows closed.
So baby, open up the latch,
Bake us up another batch;
We made it through without a scratch.

It’s been an easy winter,
It’s been an easy winter,
But it’s so hard to watch you go;
It’s been an easy winter,
It’s been an easy winter,
So let’s take it nice and slow.

It might be something with this crooked globe,
Maybe summer wasn’t letting go,
Or February just forgot the snow;
Still I’m holding to my wooly hat,
And I’m building up an anxious breath—
February isn’t over yet.

It’s been an easy winter,
It’s been an easy winter,
But it’s so hard to watch you go;
It’s been an easy winter,
It’s been an easy winter,
So let’s take it nice and slow.

I never really understood
Why no one sticks around for good;
If you’re moving on, I guess I should.
Track Name: Spirit of St. Louis
I shall be your brother;
You, my sinner’s prayer,
My lighthouse on the water,
My angel in the air.
I found a ghost left over
From the Exploration Age;
I fly the Spirit of St. Louis,
But I’ve nowhere left to stray.

This road is long enough,
The nights are long enough,
This life is long enough,
And I’m not living without your love.

So carry on, my sister,
To somewhere beyond the blue;
When all the rest dismiss you,
We’ll fly away in the Spirit of St. Lou.

This road is long enough,
The nights are long enough,
This life is long enough,
And I’m not living…
This road is long enough,
The nights are long enough,
This life is long enough,
And I’m not living without your love.
Track Name: Another Kind of Life
In the place my father raised me,
Folks would come from miles around
In their Chryslers, Fords, and Chevys,
Just to pass right through my town.
Never looking back for nothing,
Bound for bigger, better things,
Spewing carbon from the tailpipes,
Kicking dust up on my dreams.

It's just the story of a life
Of another restless child,
And only time will tell it right.

When you dream of another kind of life,
When you dream of another kind of life,
When you dream of another kind of life,
Time is never on your side.

All my wild imaginations
Would overflow the seven seas,
Would shake the smokey Appalachians,
And bring the Rockies to their knees.

It's just the story of a life
Of another restless child,
And only time will tell it right.

When you dream of another kind of life,
When you dream of another kind of life,
When you dream of another kind of life,
Time is never on your side.
Track Name: Hello Stranger
Hello stranger, tell me where you’ve been;
I’ve not been sleeping and my roof is caving in.
I’m in danger of another day
Of ruing and regretting I ever let you get away.

If you fly across the ocean, I would dry up all the sea;
If you fall in love with Venice, I’ll buy all of Italy.
I can’t hold you back forever, but I can try to make you see,
If you disappear completely, I won’t let you disappear from me.

Hello stranger, let’s go back in time,
When London and Berlin were on our mind,
Turn a wild imagination into a photo on the shelf,
The more I know you like a stranger, the less I seem to know myself.

If you fly across the ocean, I would dry up all the sea;
If Berlin captures your heart, I’ll declare war with Germany.
I can’t hold you back forever, but I can try to make you see,
If you disappear completely, I won’t let you disappear from me.

The bullet’s in the air,
But anywhere you run, I’ll just chase you there;
So why not stay right here?
Cos I won’t let you disappear.

If you fly across the ocean, I would dry up all the sea;
If you fall in love with Venice, I’ll buy all of Italy.
I can’t hold you back forever, but I can try to make you see,
If you disappear completely, I won’t let you disappear from me.
Track Name: Slow and Steady Train
All the astronauts and orbiters
That keep us honest from above,
They float without a care till they burn up in the air—
That’s nothing to compare us to, my love.

My love, oh my, oh my,
We might not fly across the sky
Like some silver aeroplane,
We’re a slow and steady train.

If I could make these wheels turn faster,
Honey, you know that I would,
To get us on our way, turn tomorrow to today,
But tomorrow’d never do us any good.

Cos my love, you know, you know,
Just gotta wait and watch it grow
Like a garden in the rain,
Like a slow and steady train,
Like a slow and steady train.

My love, oh my, oh my,
This world’ll wither up and die,
But you and I, we will sustain…

My love, you know, you know,
Just take is steady, take it slow,
Through the struggle and strain,
We’ll be a slow and steady train.
Track Name: Alamo
We were out of our minds,
In over our heads;
Two fools rushed in blind,
Two lovers leapt over the ledge.
But what are we worth
When push comes to kill?
I’ll go on the record as stating:
I’ll die on this hill.

This my battle march,
This is my Alamo,
This is my last remark:
I will never let go.

Wild as it seems,
We all live to see
The vows that we break
Outnumber the ones that we keep.
Though we never intend
To give up or give in;
So now and tonight
I’ll make up my mind,
And tomorrow I’ll do it again.

This is my mission bell,
This is my holy war,
This is the breeding ground,
This is the threshing floor.

This my battle march,
This is my Alamo,
This is my last remark:
I will never let go.

I will never let go,
I will never let go—
This is my last remark…

This is my last remark:
I will never let go.
