Track Name: I Want You
I want you
Yeah I want you
In dreams and out in the sunlight
In line at the supermarket check in
Under lights with Al Green really moving

I need you
Yeah I need you
In the dark on those cold wet winter nights
At the bar when the wine it overflows
And on the sand when the warm warm wind blows

Be seated
Oh be seated
Let me tell you all the reasons why i love you now
How your eyes turns from brown eyes to green eyes
How you smile in the water when the sun's out
How I am when we're running down a side street
Your funny laugh and the way that you hold me
Your funny laugh and the way that you hold me

So with everything I've got and with all that I've seen
The places that I've sung and the people that I've been
Make a crooked line to you through memories unclear
With wisdom of the prayers from when death felt near
The books that I've sold and the movies that I've heard
The music that I've felt or felt I deserved
You're a bigger part of me and the people I love
The stories that we tell will lift us up above
Oh the memory of the days when I didn't have you here
So let's count out the ways without counting out our fears
We've got time in our pockets so I know I know I know
Oh I'll let you know

I want you
Yeah I want you
In dreams and out in the sunlight
In line at the supermarket check in
Under lights with Al Green really moving
Track Name: Crotchets
I caught a fever
I can't believe it
I should have left those things alone

I can't fight it
I've got the weakness and weasels
They're crawling around in my bones
I've got reruns and sitcoms and westerns and ray guns
And no cons and shakers and hoppers and fakers
I don't know why it's so hot, it's so hot

She comes alive
In old fashioned places
Carries a knife in her hair
I'll treat her right

Her love is a crying son
And I feel her spirit come

I'm having visions
Of water snakes on rocks
I should be leaving those things alone

I want to clear this coast
But I can see them sliding like ripples over river stones
I got campers and potholes and kickers and sea scrolls
And liars and washers and buyers and sages and crotchets
I don't know why it's so hot, oh it's hot

She comes alive
In all kinds of places
Takes her delight in watching me beg
I know she's right

Our love is a towering one
And I feel her spirit come
