Track Name: Amaryllis
I drove for miles with a hole in me
To see an angel wrapped up in uncertainty
Sometimes I wonder what's on her mind
Who she goes home to at night
I guess I wonder all the time

Like my father's same sad songs
I'm trying to forgive the pain I've known
Amaryllis eyes you've got your hold
But this thunderstorm will drown my soul
Don't turn me home

She pulls her hair back and sighs
Is this all that's left of our lives?
Caught between a lie and a broken dream
I can see it in her eyes
The scars cut deep like mine

She's the amber as the sun goes down
The only reason that I'm still around
She's a fire in my veins
Track Name: Among Thieves
I heard that you're not sorry and I guess that's a start
If only you'd just climb down from your cross
Don't worry about me I'm bulletproof it seems
Line 'em up and fire on me

My life becomes a story twisted, torn apart
Loose lips and sinking ships just off the port of call
Is there any honor left among us thieves?
You stole my name and sold me out to sea

Do you feel like you've walked for miles?
These boots don't fit you or those thieving eyes
If you want my hurt, I'd give it away
If I could, I'd let you walk alone all day

Did you drive away with your heart still on that porch?
Did your battles with the bottle leave you passed out on the floor?
Did you find that the pain numbed away?
But the memory remains
The part you tried to erase
Track Name: Say You'll Stay
Say you'll stay just for the night time
I could say I won't be lonely another night
I could breathe with all these demons at my feet
You could keep them from crawling inside of me

And I know you've heard it all before
And the bones in my closet could tell you even more
All these games that we play
They don't make much sense to me
So say you'll stay

Say you'll stay just for the weekend
Leaving me, under cover as a friend
I'm falling deep and can't lie to myself anymore

Before you walk out that door
Don't trip on those words of where you stood before
All these games that we play
They don't make much sense to me
So say you'll stay
Track Name: Ramona
Ramona, how long has it been?
I'm counting stars from the train cars and spelling out your name
You and whiskey ain't lovers
But you've had a few benders
With a bottle of sun-warmed gin

Ramona, where have you been?
You moved out of the city, back to the country
Saying, "These Lowell boys just don't know how to quit
This city is no place for us train hopping kids
Let's move on again"

Ramona, this might be our end
Count your blessings from the windows
Trade a number for your name
Nine-to fives might break us
But this soul won't make another winter in my own skin

Ramona, where have you been?
You moved out of the country, out of the valley
Saying, "Merrimack water's got me running thin
No, this valley is no place for us train hopping kids
Let's move on again"
