Track Name: Glow
My Dear
The warmth of your voice will help my hands to steady
This winter i've worked hard to get ready
For the lows that I know will come they're coming for me
I am working to be lighter, learn to let go of the sadness that threatens to leave my mind undone
But this year I am hoping I can learn from the sun and only shine brighter
And only glow brighter

Hang our socks above the fire
Make a brew of leaves we found in the summer
When it was all just so much easier
But now we'll push yer car outta the ditch I swear we could drive forever, drive forever
Don't need to run away just remind myself of all the good reasons to stay here

Theres be a candle in all of us it seems
In the winter it yearns for more air to breathe
So lets get out of my cold winter home, keep our flames lit
Play in the snow

Now by the light of the moon love the ink of my pen
I will do my best till the bitter end
Till I see them plants growing up again
My heart its been glowing for you my friend


Chords: Am C G Bm Am C G D
Track Name: Get By
That winter when you, you were so broke
And you took any hand reachin out even if its bad
Just to get by by get by by you'll get by

That summer when you, you were so lost
And you took any ride, just so you could get away to the other side
Just to get by by, get by by you'll get by

That night you awoke, shakin sweatin in yer bed
With that playful ghost, he's fuckin with yer head
You will get by by, just to get by by

The morning you found out, you got laid off
Well they don't give a shit bout yer life or yer kids
How we gonna get by by just to get by by we'll get by


Get by by get by by we'll get by


Chords: Dm F
Track Name: Hair and Bones
If i am to forever roam I will build my home of sticks and spit of hair and bones
Weave the threads of my life into a shelter that will withstand the weather and get me through the winter, wear my life on my back so I won't ever look back, never look back
Hang a star above my bed so in my sleep I can fly through the nights air, fly through the air
Tie threads around my hands so I can learn to climb higher, I am always climbing higher

I place bones in my bed so I can become stronger, yes become stronger
Oh these teeth around my neck they will help me to be wiser, yes they help me to be wiser

Tie feathers round my feet so I can learn to be lighter, learn to let go of the sadness that threatens to pull me under

Weave the threads of my life into a shelter, will withstand the weather and get me through the winter

If I am to forever roam I will build my home of sticks and spit love of hair and bones, of hair and my bones
Track Name: Storm Surge
Storms screaming at my doorstep
Storm surging along the coast
Keeps all the ones I love away from me
But I couldn't stand for them to see me this way frosted hair and icy eyes
And the storm surges on, yes the stom surges on

Wind howling in the night
Picks up the pieces of my scattered mind
Blows it in to a brew of wine and juice
Warmth falsely tell me I'm closer to you
But your piled away under your meter of snow in your own cold home

Don't lie to me dear, it aint just the weather
You realized that her love can't make you better
Don't lie to me dear, it ain't just the weather
You realized that her love won't make you better
And the storm surges on

Whiteout the dark pains that I feel
In my icy fingers and rosy cheeks
Leave me be, hate how much I think of your face
On this snowy day, wish you were here with me
But I'm a swollen storming misery
And even if ya could, I don't think ya would
Yes even if you could, I don't know why you would

I won't lie to you dear
It aint just the weather, I realized your love can't make me better, better
I won't lie to you love, it aint just the weather
I realized your love can't make me better, better
And the storm surges on, the storm surges on, storm surges on

Chords: Em C Am G
