Track Name: October
what is it about october?
pieces of heart fall away
dead-leaf thoughts head nowhere
still where you left me that day

my bones are tired
my mind is tired
my tear ducts are tired
help me break the silence
help me pierce through this noise

when snowfalls clear the streets
will i still be here?
smudging words on muddy pages
will i still have nothing to say?

my bones are tired
my mind is tired
my tear ducts are tired
help me break the silence
help me pierce through this noise

there is so much to forget
but you weigh down
on my busy head
Track Name: I Got Stuck
She's been workin' in the front yard, I been swimmin' out to sea
I've been hidin' since the Cold War, she can't get enough of me
I'll tell no lies for I swore upon The Book,
That girl drank all my wine and she left me with the cork

And I got stuck
Cleanin' up the mess
Pickin' up my heart in the pieces that she left

Woke this mornin' in a cold sweat, she ate her breakfast in the sun
You know those papers ain't been signed yet, I think I'm going for a run
She's a low-down scoundrel with a soul made out of steel
Now I'm not a bettin' gal but there's no way to win that deal

And I got stuck
Cleanin' up the mess
Pickin' up my heart in the pieces that she left

Walkin' sideways at the square dance, I think I'll have another round
My heart is turnin' into quicksand, I wish I hadn't turned her down
I may have hitched my horse to a ramblin' tumbleweed
Now I've traded in my rip for a saddle and steed

And I got stuck
Cleanin' up the mess
Pickin' up my heart in the pieces that she left
