Track Name: St Jo River
IN 1957 AN EDUCATED MAN
WITH HIGH HOPES AND BIG PLANS
MOVED HIS FAMILY NORTH TO INDIANA
HE TOOK HIS LOVELY YOUNG WIFE
THEIR THREE SMALL CHILDREN
BOUGHT AN OLD HOUSE
AND A NEW BEGINNING
IN A LITTLE FARM TOWN
ON THE ST JO RIVER

FAMILY PHOTOS FRAMED ON THE MANTLE
TREASURED BOOKS PUT AWAY ON THE SHELVES
ROCKING CHAIR BY THE FIRE PLACE
BRIGHT COLORED RUGS OVER HARD WOOD FLOORS
THE BEDS WERE MADE THE HOUSE WAS CLEAN
SUNDAY CHINA ON THE DINNER TABLE

THEN THERE WAS A KNOCK ON THE DOOR

IN 1969 A YOUNG GIRL JUST TEN
CURIOUS AND WIDE EYED
FOUND AN OLD HOUSE BURIED IN WEEDS AND VINES
IT SEEMED FOREVER ABANDONED
BEGGING TO BE EXPLORED
AN OLD HOUSE AND A NEW BEGINNING
IN A LITTLE FARM TOWN ON THE ST JO RIVER

SHE CLIMBED IN THROUGH A BROKEN WINDOW
EVERYTHING WAS COVERED IN DUST
SEEMED LIKE TIME HAD STOPPED IN A HEARTBEAT
WAITING TO START UP AGAIN
SHE ADMIRED THE DARK SKINNED FACES
SMILING FOR THE CAMERA IN THEIR SUNDAY BEST

THE FAMILY PHOTOS FRAMED ON THE MANTLE
TREASURED BOOKS PUT AWAY ON THE SHELF
ROCKING CHAIR BY THE FIREPLACE
BRIGHT COLORED RUGS OVER HARD WOOD FLOORS
THE BEDS WERE MADE THE HOUSE WAS CLEAN
SUNDAY CHINA ON THE DINNER TABLE.
Track Name: One of These Days
ONE OF THESE DAYS I'M GONNA CATCH THE WIND
PUT IT IN MY POCKET AND TAKE FOR A SPIN
I'LL TAKE IT FOR A SPIN

ONE OF THESE DAYS WHEN YOU'RE LOOKING MY WAY
YOU'LL SEE ME TAKING OFF LIKE A JET AIRPLANE
LIKE A JET AIRPLANE

WATCH ME NOW I'M CHASING DREAMS
REACHING FOR THE SKY, I'M AIMING HIGH

ONE OF THESE DAYS YOU'RE GONNA BE AMAZED
I'LL BE DANCING WITH THE STARS IN THE MILKY WAY
I'LL BE DANCING IN THE MILKY WAY

DON'T ASK ME WHY I EVEN TRY
DON'T NEED NOBODY TO TELL ME THAT I CAN'T FLY

ONE OF THESE DAYS I'M GONNA CATCH THE WIND
I'LL PUT IT IN MY POCKET AND TAKE IT FOR A SPIN
I'LL TAKE IT FOR A SPIN

WATCH ME NOW I'M CHASING DREAMS
REACHING FOR THE SKY, I'M AIMING HIGH
Track Name: What Were You Thinking
I SAW YOU STANDING OUT SIDE THE BAR
I WAS ON THE MIDNIGHT BUS PASSING BY
YOU WERE LEANING ON A PARKING METER
STARING UP AT THE SKY
YOU WERE LEANING ON A PARKING METER
STARING UP AT THE SKY

YOUR RED HAIR BURNING LIKE A FIRE IN THE DARK
I COULD SEE YOU WERE UNHAPPY WITH YOUR LIFE
STANDING ALONE AWAY FROM THE CROWD
STARING UP AT THE SKY
YOU WERE STANDING ALONE AWAY FROM THE CROWD
STARING UP AT THE SKY

AND I WAS WONDERING
WHAT WERE YOU THINKING
I WAS WONDERING
WHAT WERE YOU THINKING
I WAS WONDERING
WHAT WERE YOU THINKING
I WAS WONDERING
WHAT WERE YOU THINKING

WHEN THE BOYS AND THE BOOZE NO LONGER AMUSE YOU
THE POT AND THE PILLS DON'T GIVE YOU A THRILL
YOU'LL KEEP TRYING JUST TO FEEL SOMETHING
EVEN IF IT KILLS YOU

AND I WAS WONDERING
WHAT WERE YOU THINKING
I WAS WONDER
WHAT WERE YOU THINKING

I SAW YOU STANDING OUT SIDE THE BAR
I WAS ON THE MIDNIGHT BUS PASSING BY
YOU WERE LEANING ON A PARKING METER
STARING UP AT THE SKY
YOU WERE LEANING ON A PARKING METER
STARING UP AT THE SKY

AND I WAS WONDERING
WHAT WERE YOU THINKING
I WAS WONDERING
WHAT WERE YOU THINKING
I WAS WONDERING
WHAT WERE YOU THINKING
I WAS WONDERING
WHAT WERE YOU THINKING
WHAT WERE YOU THINKING
WHAT WERE YOU THINKING
WHAT WERE YOU THINKING
Track Name: It Never Happened
THERE WAS AN OLD MAN IN THE BACK WOOD HILLS
PLAYED A LITTLE GAME WITH THE LITTLE CHILDREN
THE GAME BECAME A PART OF THEM
BURIED DEEP, DEEP WITHIN

THE BOY WAS RUNNING THROUGH THE JACK PINE TREES
CRAZY OLD MAN RUNNING AFTER HIM
SHOT GUN AIMED AT HIS BEHIND
THE BOY WAS FIVE, RUNNING FOR HIS LIFE

HIS BROTHER SAID DON'T YOU TELL NO TALES
NO ONE BELIEVES A THING YOU SAY
IT NEVER HAPPENED IT WAS JUST A DREAM
IT WAS JUST A DREAM
IT NEVER HAPPENED IT WAS JUST A DREAM
IT WAS JUST A DREAM

THAT WAS THE DAY THAT THEY BURNED THE HOUSE DOWN
PACKED UP THE CAR, LEFT THAT HILLBILLY TOWN
NOBODY TALKS, THE MEMORY DIES
ANOTHER CHILDHOOD GOES PASSING BY

HIS BROTHER SAID DON'T YOU TELL NO TALES
NO ONE BELIEVES A THING YOU SAY
IT NEVER HAPPENED IT WAS JUST A DREAM
IT WAS JUST A DREAM
IT NEVER HAPPENED IT WAS JUST A DREAM
IT WAS JUST A DREAM

IT NEVER HAPPENED IT WAS JUST A DREAM
IT WAS JUST A DREAM
IT NEVER HAPPENED IT WAS JUST A DREAM
IT WAS JUST A DREAM

IT NEVER HAPPENED IT WAS JUST A DREAM
IT WAS JUST A DREAM
IT NEVER HAPPENED IT WAS JUST A DREAM
IT WAS JUST A DREAM

IT NEVER HAPPENED IT WAS JUST A DREAM
IT WAS JUST A DREAM
IT NEVER HAPPENED IT WAS JUST A DREAM
IT WAS JUST A DREAM

POSITIVELY SPEAKING
I'M PAINTING A BRIGHT PICTURE
SO BRIGHT IT BLINDS ME
BEATING ON A BROKEN DRUM

LEAVES DANCING ON THE PAVEMENT
FEATHERS IN THE BREEZE
AN ACCIDENTAL ALTER
TO A GOD UNSEEN

SOLITARY DREAMING
I'M HOLDING ON TO NOTHING

ON AND ON AND ON

CONSTANTLY THIS YEARNING
WHERE IS MY COMPANION
I KEEP RETURNING
TO THE SOURCE WHERE I BEGAN
FLOWING BACK OUT AGAIN

WHERE ARE YOU NOW

ON AND ON
ON AND ON AND ON
ON AND ON AND ON

Track Name: Waiting For the Next Train
SHE TAKES THE SUBWAY EVERY DAY
WATCHES THE DARK WALLS THROUGH THE WINDOW
FLYING UNDERNEATH THE CITY STREETS
PASSING STRANGERS WAITING ON THE PLATFORM
STRANGERS WAITING ON THE PLATFORM

WAITING FOR THE NEXT TRAIN
WAITING TO REACH THEIR DESTINATIONS
WAITING FOR THE NEXT TRAIN

HER THOUGHTS GO WITH HER UNDERGROUND
THEY NEVER SEE THE LIGHT OF DAY
SHE DOSN'T SMILE SHE DOSN'T FROWN
SHE JUST LOOKS OFF FAR AWAY
SHE LOOKS OFF FAR AWAY

WAITING FOR THE NEXT TRAIN
WAITING TO REACH HER DESTINATION
WAITING FOR THE NEXT TRAIN

I WATCH HER BLEND INTO THE CROWD
SHE'S RIGHT ON TRACK SHE'S RIGHT ON TIME
SHE DISAPPEARS AROUND A CORNER
DOWN THE LONG DARK TUNNEL OF HER LIFE
THE LONG DARK TUNNEL OF HER LIFE

WAITING FOR THE NEXT TRAIN
WAITING TO REACH MY DESTINATION
WAITING FOR THE NEXT TRAIN
WAITING TO REACH MY DESTINATION
WAITING FOR THE NEXT TRAIN
Track Name: Tomorrow I'm Changing
I DON'T KNOW WHO I AM I DIDN'T ASK
DIDN'T RECOGNIZE ME WHEN I CHECKED LAST
I'M A DIFFERENT PERSON THEN I USED TO BE
TOMORROW I'M CHANGING DIRECTIONS
I'M TIRED OF SWIMMING UPSTREAM

I HAVE BEEN SAILING WITH NO CAPTAIN
I HAVE BEEN FLYING WITHOUT A PILOT
I'M TAKING DIVING LESSONS IN A SHALLOW POOL
TOMORROW I'M CHANGING TEACHERS
I'M TIRED OF GOING TO SCHOOL

IT'S BEEN AN UPHILL BATTLE
ITS BEEN A MOUNTAIN CLIMB
I THINK I'LL DROP MY PADDLE
AND LET THE WHOLE THING SLIDE

NO SENSE TRYING TO TALK CAUSE I'M NOT LISTENING
CAN'T HEAR A WORD YOU SAY THERE'S TOO MUCH MENTAL DIN
I DON'T KNOW WHO I AM, I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO
TOMORROW I'M CHANGING DOCTORS
I'M TIRED OF SEEING YOU

I TRIED THINKING ONCE BUT THAT WAS TOO MUCH WORK
I TRIED NOT THINKING BUT THAT WAS EVEN WORSE
I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE POINT IS THOUGH I USED TO KNOW
TOMORROW I'M CHANGING RELIGIONS
I'M TIRED OF RITUALS

IT'S BEEN AN UPHILL BATTLE
ITS BEEN A MOUNTAIN CLIMB
I THINK I'LL DROP MY PADDLE
AND LET THE WHOLE THING SLIDE

IT'S BEEN AN UPHILL BATTLE
ITS BEEN A MOUNTAIN CLIMB
I THINK I'LL DROP MY PADDLE
AND LET THE WHOLE THING SLIDE
