Track Name: Memphis Ferry
I'm going downstream on the Memphis Ferry
Like a Runaway Snapping All Ties
with a bundle of clothes on my shoulder
singing good God won't you give me a girl tonight

Going downstream on the Memphis Ferry
Going down where the living is
When I get there I pray
Gonna find me a girl to kiss.

The river is flowing over the banks
the tigers and lilies grow
the children are playing amongst the reeds
and the twilight it starts to grow

Going downstream on the Memphis Ferry
like a runaway snapping all ties
Going downstream on the Memphis Ferry
gonna find me a girl tonight

Going downstream on the Memphis Ferry
gonna find the great big city lights
Going downstream on the Memphis Ferry
I dont care if I'm wrong or I'm right.

When I get there I pray I'm gonna find me a girl tonight.
Track Name: Two Roads
Could've bought a house
Could've moved to San Francisco
Could've had some kids
Could've wrote a million songs

Could've had a wife
Could've taken a big risk though
Could've had a life
Cause who tells you when you're wrong?

I never really understood
this line of poetry
because in the end we all die

There were two roads

When you get gray hair
and 200,000 miles
and you start to think the warranty's all gone
baby just take care cause the forest it is wild
and then so are you
you can be both write and wrong

I never really understood
this line of poetry
because in the end we all die

there were two roads and I took them
Track Name: Leave (Glen Hansard/Once cover)
I can't wait forever is all that you said
Before you stood up
And you won't disappoint me
I can do that myself
But I'm glad that you've come
Now if you don't mind

Leave, leave,
And free yourself at the same time
Leave, leave,
I don't understand, you've already gone

I hope you feel better
Now that it's out
What took you so long
And the truth has a habit
Of falling outta your mouth
Well now that it's come
If you don't mind

Leave, leave,
And please yourself at the same time
Leave, leave,
Let go of my hand
You said what you have to now
Leave, leave,
Let go of my hand
You said what you came to now
Leave, leave,
Leave, leave,
Let go of my hand
You said what you have to now
Leave, leave...
Track Name: RockStar
All alone he stands up on the stage
as the lights go down
even though he is of age
shares his ups and downs
cannot see five feet in front of him
feels little drips of sweat
he is not sure
what will happen next

and the lights go down and the crowd gets up and then everybody starts to sing

is he 29 or 45
gets so lost in his own mind
his fingers dont know which way to go
as he tries to kill some time
notebooks open through a microphone
pages scribbled out and rough
in a gospel twang he has on loan
singing all you need is love

and the lights go down and the crowd gets up and then everybody starts to sing

got no feeling in his fingertips
every note how it rings
go along with a raspy voice
you can almost hear salvation sing

and the lights go down and the crowd gets up and then everybody starts to sing
Track Name: Café en San Juan
I felt the breeze down in San Juan
as I sat in a cafe and I watched how life went on
that's how I spent my day in San Juan

I felt the wind from off the shore
I felt the wind and I wanted something more
to round out my day in San Juan

a una señorita le canté
una historita sobre de me café

vamonos!

despues, cuando miraba vista del mar
sentiendo en mi café
Dios me llenaba de fe.

that's what I found in my café
