Waves Album Credits:

1. Papers on the Table (Drew Smith)

Statue of my face will you carry on my name
Will you hold back all my shame
On a fountain throwing dimes and silver dollars to the people that have pained me

Blood inside my veins is littered mud it seems
From the storms that fall on me
Growing diamonds in the soil from the gardens of the people that have pained me

Chorus:
Push them papers on the table
And stone me til I’m feeling able
Like them wreckers on the highway
With a bottle of whiskey and calling the bullshit
Push them papers on the table

All you all my friends will you hand me all my trends
With your words I’ll make my skin
On a fountain throwing dimes and silver dollars to the people that have pained me

Pocket full of smiles, like a potion I must hide
Through your blown glass colors slide
Growing diamonds in the soil from the gardens of the people that have pained me

Chorus

2. Waves (Brian Beken)

You can hear the cars drive by
It’s getting dark outside
I bet the tar’s not dry on the new road

Fiddle with the TV set
Haven’t realized yet
But I’d guess that you could bet I’ll be here alone

Chorus:
And it almost sounds like waves crash in
And it almost sounds like waves crash in

I don’t really say a lot
Never gave it too much thought
How many times I’ve bought what they’re selling me

Plenty time I’ve come around
To something a lot like this sound
It’s just that further down I can hear the street

And it almost sounds like waves crash in
And it almost sounds like waves crash in

And it almost sounds like waves crash in
And it almost sounds like waves crash in
And it almost sounds like waves crash in
And it almost sounds like waves crash in

3. Leavin’ (Bruce Robison)

There’s a man upon a mountain, he’s screaming at the stars
Says his love in gonna save him, his passion is on fire
If he listens very closely in the distance he can hear the tires squealin

The words we tell each other they’re the ones we wanna hear
Sometimes you throw them out, they come right back just trickling down your ear
Other times you take a chance all you’re gonna hear’s the paint a-peelin

Chorus:
Many things they change when they left me barely breathing
But the girls all look the same when they’re leavin, when they’re leavin

This thing will have you flying boy, feeling ten feet four
Or just dragging like a junkie, looking for one more
Spent some time busted up in a bed a-counting cracks up in the ceiling

Chorus

Bridge:
Spring time blows the empty days and though they’re clinging by their fingers
In the river of my mind
Thickly through the hazy fog the past just waves
Is getting far behind

Everything keeps on changing but it’s all just the same
You know I find it deadly serious and yet somehow still a game
And who’s the crazy fool who keeps on changing what the winning hand’s revealing

I ain’t never had no silver tongue but I give it all I’ve got
But old Boudeloux was right it only burns you when it’s hot
And strings are tied, and scars, you know they’re never really healing

4. Run & Hide (Brian Beken)

When I was young the world was smaller
They kept on building just added water
Strip mall, concrete sky,
And countless reasons why

I was here when they rolled out the rocket
Then suited men filled up their pockets
But then they couldn’t stay,
Stole the night and went away

Chorus:
Should we go run and hide
Should we go run and hide

I read the book about their fathers
Blank-faced sons and country club daughters
There’s a wall that casts on the ground
A shadow on this town

Should we go run and hide
Should we go run and hide

I can tell just which one of you have been lying
I can tell just which one of you will be smiling here all alone

Should we go run and hide
Should we go run and hide
Should we go run and hide
Should we go run and hide

6. Dear Prudence (John Lennon, Paul McCartney) SONY/ATV TUNES LLC DBA ATV OBO ATV (NORTHERN SONGS CATALOG)

Dear Prudence won’t you come out to play
Dear Prudence greet the brand new day
The sun is up, the sky is blue, it’s beautiful, and so are you
Dear Prudence, won’t you come out to play

Dear Prudence open up your eyes
Dear Prudence see the sunny skies
The wind is low, the birds will sing, that you are part of everything
Dear Prudence won’t you open up your eyes

Dear Prudence, let me see you smile
Dear Prudence, like a little child
The clouds will be a daisy chain, so let me see you smile again
Dear Prudence, won’t you let me see you smile

Dear Prudence won’t you come out to play
Dear Prudence greet the brand new day
The sun is up, the sky is blue, it’s beautiful, and so are you
Dear Prudence, won’t you come out to play

8. Gulf Road (James McMurtry) BUG MUSIC OBO SHORT TRIP MUSIC

Not a hot cup of coffee, nor a cold glass of tea
Ever crossed your lips in my company
Just straight bourbon whiskey was all we’d abide
So lets don’t hold back now, we’ve got nothing to hide

So much we savored, yet so much we missed
You know I never meant you to see me like this
Just a faint distant flicker from the last of the storm
You know a taste of that liquor could do me no harm

Chorus:
Light me a candle, light me a fire
Come sit by the window with the shade drawn
To the best of intentions, to the worst of desires
We’ll leave by the gulf road in the grey dawn

Take a short handled shovel, take along handled hoe
And cover my bones when the west wind blows
Smooth it off even and pack down hard
Now I’ll no more be here, but I’ll never be far
Now I’ll no more be here, but I’ll never be far

10. The City (Brian Beken)

I’ve always noticed you
Long before you ever knew
You said you like what I do
I’d like to sit down and have one or two

Chorus:

And the blood is moving through my veins like before
There’s no way anything can keep me
From coming back here so much more

What brings you to the city
Haven’t seen you before
It’s such a shame, such a pity
That I’m going, but I’ll be back for sure
