Track Name: The Well
All of my days
Working the well, working the well
Nobody knows
You couldn’t tell, you couldn’t tell
Where is the end of my rope?
It’s in my hands, in my own two hands
In my head and in my hope
It’s where I stand, it’s where I stand

Up from the bottom, up from the bottom
It’s coming up from the bottom, up from the bottom

I am alone
On a garden path, on a garden path
Trimming the hedges
They grow so fast, you know they grow so fast
And all of my nights
Working the well, working the well
So many secrets
I’ll never tell, no I’ll never tell

Up from the bottom, up from the bottom
It’s coming up from the bottom, up from the bottom
I bring it up from the bottom, up from the bottom
I bring it up from the bottom, up from the bottom
Track Name: What You Took
A mirror and a razorblade
Are all that I have left for you
I didn’t leave a penny in that old penny jar
Or a stack of bills all sealed and paid in full
I didn’t leave a letter, handwritten and hidden
in the pages of your favorite book
I didn’t leave one damn thing
And I sold my wedding ring
I’m just making up for what you took

I didn’t leave the bottle of blood red wine
That you were saving for a rainy day
I didn’t leave an address or a telephone line
Or a map, so that you can find your way
I didn’t leave the photograph of the night that we first met
When you held me until I no longer shook
I didn’t leave it cause I know
You’ll miss it more than me and so
I’m just making up for what you took

What you took will never be the same
And I thought that I could change it just by calling out your name
But that feels so long ago
Now that I have stepped outside your door

You’ll find me gone when you wake up sometime
In the middle of the next century
And I’ll bet the man you’re sleeping with won’t even know a thing
About the fire that you felt with me
And maybe some cold night when you’re shivering all alone
You’ll peer out that front window and look
For someone to let in
To your cold heart once again
Someone holding out for what you took

Someone to set you free
But that someone, it ain’t me
I’ll be making up for what you took
Track Name: Don't Let Me Forget
Tell me 'bout a story of a simple time
I can sit and listen all through the night
Rockin' in your armchair in the pale moonlight
Tell another story and I swear I'll cry

I was younger when I met you
Much too young for memory
Call my name when I forget you
And hold me till I see
That few can love as much as you love me

Write another letter to me every day
I can make a promise it won't get in my way
Tell me 'bout your worries tell me what's on your mind
Tell me 'bout your lovers that you left behind

If you're crying I won't let you
For this lock I hold the key
Call my name when I forget you
And hold me till I see
That few can love as much as you love me
Track Name: Jolene
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
I'm begging of you please don't take my man
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
Please don't take him just because you can

Your beauty is beyond compare
With flaming locks of auburn hair
With ivory skin and eyes of emerald green

Your smile is like a breath of spring
Your voice is soft like summer rain
And I cannot compete with you, Jolene

He talks about you in his sleep
There's nothing I can do to keep
From crying when he calls your name, Jolene

And I can easily understand
How you could easily take my man
But you don't know what he means to me, Jolene

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
I'm begging of you please don't take my man
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
Please don't take him just because you can

You could have your choice of men
But I could never love again
He's the only one for me, Jolene

I had to have this talk with you
My happiness depends on you
And whatever you decide to do, Jolene

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
I'm begging of you please don't take my man
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
Please don't take him even though you can
Track Name: Far From Home
In the cold, in the cold, in the night
I'll be watching you from under blue lamplight
I just wanna sleep tonight
In a place that's warm and the walls won't bite
But I got somewhere to go
And I can see my life tripping over the lines in the road
This is the way, this is the way
of a man who's far from home

Far from home, far from home, far from home

In the shadow of the creeping time
I peer up at the moon and it drives me blind
There is nothing I would rather find
Than a place where I can grow up with the thoughts in mind
But I got somewhere to go
And I can hear the ringing of a bell far out there in the snow
This is the sound, this is the sound
of a man who's far from home

Far from home, far from home, far from home
