    There are only 5 of these gems! Super limited-edition. This is the album they send an artist before they print the whole batch, so there is no artwork, *however* because I want you to actually listen to it, I'm sending you two! The test press and a free regular vinyl, so that you can keep one and/or sell it for millions later, and listen to one.

Long Gone 03:00
It was dawn, you were gone down a long highway You tried to wake me in the middle of the night just to say Farewell But I was so damn tired that it didn’t take, You walked out of the door with no words, just a story to tell. And I never thought I could feel so clean I feel like I’m in love and I’m seventeen I rolled out of bed in the middle of the day Put a kettle on the stove and some dough in to bake It got so warm, I threw the windows wide And I thought I heard your motorcycle rollin’ through the sky & Never mind the fact that I thought I knew you so well You couldn’t even find yourself and I could not tell So what’s the use in words if they cannot spell out our happy destiny I see your face on the screen I hear your voice as you call in my dreams And that’s how you still come to wake me in the night So Long. Long Gone. And I never thought I could be so clean I feel like I’m in love & I’m just a baby

If I’m always writing love songs When will I - Will I ever - fall in love? If I say I’m gonna be better Gotta be better If I’m always tryin’ to do better When will better be enough? I’ve been writing to you, sending letters home When will I get to see you? When can I come home? If I say I’m gonna be better, gotta be better If I’m always tryin’ to do better When will better be enough? We’ve been fighting, we’ve been screaming, yet we long for peace When will we ever know peace - Was it meant to be? If I say I’m gonna be better, Gotta be better If I’m always trying to do better When will better be enough?

All water wants to find its own level Wants to return to the raging sea Shares itself with the thirsty Pushes out of the eddy Fills every living thing So we can be alive So take this water send it back to the river All medicine wants pain to heal Needs a doctor a patient & pills Feels our sorrows & ills ills But our bodies want to move Remember how it feels, what it’s like to be alive So take this body, send it back to the river Wash my face clean my soul send me back to the river All love wants to give itself away To everyone that sees its face Shines the light out everyday And still has kindness for our shame Wants to explode out of the dark So we can be alive So Take this love, take it back to the river Take my life, take my love, send me back to the river

I will cure your loneliness someday With my hands, my lips or how my hips sway When I see you, there’s a smile on your face & I hope it stays there always, yeah Don’t lock the door when you’re leavin’ Don’t lock the door when you go Don’t lock the door behind you babe, & come on home when you need your mama some more You lift me up when I’m falling You seem to know everything I am wanting You’ve seen me grow, you’re the sunshine, for that I know May that light always shine in your soul If I come to you, broken down and blue Needing something true - baby, will you hold me? If I follow you around, lay down on the ground & tell you what I've found - baby would you scold me? Cause baby, I know I've done you so wrong. I want you to come home - would you scold me? Don’t lock the door when you’re leavin’ Don’t lock the door when you go Don’t lock the door behind you babe, & come on home when you need your mama some more Come on home when you need your lover some more Come on home when you need my love some more Come on, Come on, come on

Torchlight 04:26
Deep down is our raging fear That God has gone and left us here Far from our home with no one to carry the torchlight By ourselves on the darkest night God ain’t showing up tonight He's going alone no one will carry the torchlight Jungle, mountain, flicker flame Hell is rising up again It’s quiet now, We wait on the ones with the torchlight We cannot wait til morning comes By then, they’ll have caught up with us It’s quiet now, We wait on the ones with the torchlight It’s quiet now, We cannot wait on the ones with the torchlight The wars of this place have no end Fire comes down the mountain It can shine the way home If we are not burned by the torchlight The darkest places we will go Are buried underneath our bones We must go it alone We are the ones with the torchlight But no one will know If no one will carry the torchlight

Darling, where do you go When the light is gone and the moon is low? Darling, where do you go this late in the evening & what should I do with our love When the demons run through your heart, Trample your soul, & Let out your ghosts Oh, where do you go Darlin I do, I do love you & I will not lie to you like you’re used to Darlin I do I do love you & I will give you my hand to hold on to… Darling, where do you go When the day is young and the sun is low? Darling, where do you go before the first caw of the crow? You know I’m not here to fight I just want to hold you darlin and love you right Let the skeletons go, sweep out their bones So I can welcome you home Darlin I do, I do love you I will not lie to you like you’re used to Darlin I do I do love you I will give you my hand to hold on to Darlin I do I do love you & I will not beat you down like you’re used to Darlin I do I do love you baby, through and throug So when the reaper comes to my door I’m going to stand tall and true tell him I adore you, baby, Even after all you’ve put me through Darlin I do I do love you I will not lie to you like you’re used to Darlin I do I do love you I will not beat you down like you’re used to So when the reaper comes to my door I’m going to stand tall and true And tell him Darlin I do, I do, And I will give you my hand to hold on to

The Same 04:39
I lay your bones beside the river Water washes over your ashes and your skin I think of all the times I let you in I take your heart, your beating heart To the home we used to live in Water washes over my feet, carries me downstream And in the end, all is known All the cards have been shown And this is not a winning kind of game When you drowned yourself in alcohol I just knew I’d never be the same, no There are times you’re still inside me, your voice still rattles through the halls Echoing out of your room, bouncing off the walls So I drink this one in memory Of the good times, long gone, And the ones that linger on and on This is my heart, my beating heart And it still loves you through the pain I tried to stop, tried to stop Still it loves you all the same I enter through my wound To follow you to your grave In the end, all is known, All the cards have been shown And this is not a winning kind of game When you drowned yourself in alcohol I just knew I’d never be the same This is my heart, my beating heart And it still loves you through the pain I tried to stop, tried to stop Still it loves you all the same I enter through my wound To follow you to your grave

Let me be a dancer Swaying to your song Let my body find the rhythm Deep within us all along Let me be a writer I will pen your truth And if your lungs tighten I will speak for you Let me be the one Let me be a secret Let me be a prayer Let me be an answer Let me be the one Let me be the one Let me be an artist I will paint the way Through the busy, rushing people We brush by every day Let me be your lover I will look you in the eye And I will hold you through the dark times, This I promise you, As the years keep flying by Let me be the one Let me be a secret Let me be a prayer Let me be an answer Let me be the one Let me be the one Let me treat the wounded Let me be the gun Let me be courageous Let me be the one Let me be the one Let me be the one Let me be a fire Let me be the sun Let me be a lover Let me be the one Let me be a saviour Let me come undone Let me be your equal Let me be the one Let me be the one

Jimmy 05:11
Out on the road, most men are strangers With tired eyes, living on wagers In need of something they look at you I turn away, it's all a good girl can do But I saw your smile, before I saw your eyes My shoulders loosened, my boots untied I couldn’t stop looking your way, and I caught your eye And in that moment I didn’t need to know why But, Oh, Jimmy, Where have you gone? I last saw you dancing, calling the sun You spun me around at dawn Then you just carried on Dancing down the road Over mountains to the Ohio Found a bridge on the road Do you still groove from your soul? Oh, Jimmy Have you made it to the ocean Did you already find your friend? Is she still riding bareback at the shores of Lands End? Or, Jimmy, are you still looking - did you take another detour? Do you think you'll ever make it back on home? chorus If you come back, will you remember me As another that you danced with, another fish in the sea? Or will you recognize me like you did back then As a long-lost kindred spirit, a lover & a friend? Along the way, did you lose your enemies? Did they fall off of your heals when you ran into the sea? I hope you made it to the end of your rainbow Hope you’re not still out in the cold rain and snow Oh Jimmy, where have you gone?
