Track Name: Pushing Up Rivers
Don’t hate your life and don’t you be a mans wife unless you love him I remember when you and I were just good friends Making love was so much easier then
Don’t hesitate cause I appreciate what you’re saying tethered to a pole and obeying, pushing up rivers how I’m playing to try and break through to you

I break through to you - It’s what I’m gonna do I break through to you - I’m gonna break through to you

Been acting tough, you took my heart and ripped it up, I will never get over you One thing I forgot I still love you a lot Why the hell’s it raining over my head today
And if you change your mind I will be the first one in line Hold you in my arms call you mine, be a better man the second time if I could break through to you

I break through to you - It’s what I’m gonna do I break through to you - I’m gonna break through to you
Track Name: Business Trip
Oh I have been put through the ringer Got knocked down when I wasn’t grounded Another city another time because she was the truest love of mine
You ask me how I did it - I hit and I quit it I stumbled through the rumble - I have been tripping for so long, I’ve gone tripping

Move along, ride the waves of a woman Treat her like a good man should Far fetched from the truth, I’ve been blinded by my youth It was just business not pleasure this time

You ask me how I did it - I hit and I quit it I stumbled through the rumble - I have been tripping for so long, I’ve gone tripping
Track Name: Marry Ya
Maybe I will marry ya, take good care of ya, just maybe I will marry ya

Come in here with me, dim the lights dark gotta get naked, take it right back to the start. What happened last weekend girl you know I didn’t mean it I had to pause and proceed ya Didn’t mean to do you like that

Maybe I will marry ya, take good care of ya, just maybe I will marry ya
The game is called life, been working too hard, ya’ll just gotta dust it off and cradle your art We were just kids and that was our business, we cant get handcuffed to resistance Now and then we all get high, get low

Maybe I will marry ya, take good care of ya, just maybe I will marry ya
Track Name: Rita
Been trying hard to understand, days spent behind the carwash not dead Grew up on the south side, made friends with the east side, made love on the north side I tried my hardest just to get it right

Rita Rita Rita don’t you know that I need ya but you run like a cheater back home Rita Rita Rita - You’re the cheater

I never claim to be a wise man but I just try to be a good man Then you walk in the room girl, light me up with perfume girl, I would take you to the moon girl Hands holding hands to the end of the world

Rita Rita Rita don’t you know that I need ya but you run like a cheater back home Rita Rita Rita - You’re the cheater
Track Name: Abused
Look me up when you come back I’ll be the toy in your cracker jacks I won’t be salty won’t be confused Cause I got nothing, nothing to lose - Take it slowly
I will meet you on the B sides It could get heavy in the reprise Don’t you be surprised - Baby don’t you be

I’ve been abused

Let’s be thankful for the teachers I’m real fond of your features April showers rain over you I got nothing, nothing to lose - Something told me
Something told me not to go home I gotta know where your heart roams You keep walking - baby you keep

I’ve been abused
Track Name: Love Lines
IN_STR_U_MENTAL
Track Name: Street Clothes
Baby I caught you in your street clothes when the store closed and the lights went out tonight Baby you caught me in my street clothes only lord knows I want to take you home tonight Baby your street clothes only lord knows
Let me get to it let me tell you how I was raised I grew up fast in a Mississippi state of emergency girl you’re hurting me And all of the time that we got sensual It’s existentialism no? Let’s get to it, let’s get to it my love
Baby I caught you in your street clothes when the store closed and the lights went out tonight Baby you caught me in my street clothes only lord knows I want to take you home tonight Baby your street clothes only lord knows
Baby let me listen let me listen to the heart of an angel A serious matter of doubt is on the table Fuck the label I’m willing and able 4th of July we’ll be holding hands It’s common sense and understanding Let’s get to it, let’s get to it my love
Track Name: Call Me
Po Po don’t know what’s wrong with me Get lost go, go home and get some sleep Why must I always remind myself You gotta be cruel to be kind and you’ll save yourself You call brick wall no not this time My heart is yearning for a land line

You don’t have to call me to let me know that you need me I shouldn’t have to call you to let you know that I love you

Burnt out, no good, it’s no the same I’ve been convicted of the same game I was just minding my own business When sorrow shook the hand of happiness Well played don’t say a word to me This phone’s reserved for emergencies

You don’t have to call me to let me know that you need me I shouldn’t have to call you to let you know that I love you

Po Po don’t know what’s wrong with me Strung out all night three hundred sixty degrees So much for old time sake you said Throw it in the fire of the war you lead Babe please these knees can’t take no more One or the other or I’m out the door

You don’t have to call me to let me know that you need me I shouldn’t have to call you to let you know that I love you
Track Name: Problems
Separate your problems from the problems on the table
No it don’t cost nothing no it don’t cost nothing
Let me in through your door, through your door you let me in
Right back to your problems again

And all of your problems come with a punch
And all of your problems it really too much
You cut it with a knife like an elephant that’s in the room
Someone call the doctor my heart it has been broken in two
And all of your problems look what you do

Let me help me help you, help you get through the storm
Third time is a given, fourth time is for living
Chalk it out like a crime scene, like a crime I’d never seen
Right back to your problems again

And all of your problems come with a punch
And all of your problems it really too much
You cut it with a knife like an elephant that’s in the room
Someone call the doctor my heart it has been broken in two
And all of your problems look what you do
