Track Name: Four Letter Word
Waiting for you by this southbound train
Station smells like cigarettes and rain
I told you I would make it back in time
Told you I would be right this time

So one by one I watched it fall to the floor
Two by two her feet dragged out my door
Three by three your best comes out at night
Four letter word left my heart to die

Packed my car and headed out east
LA is too full for me to breathe
You told me you would make it back in time
Words came up and spit out a lie

Track Name: Illinois
So I was calling out your name
But you, you were not around
And I was searching for something
But it was nowhere to be found

I move to Chicago
I’m leaving LA

So its times like these, when I feel weak
You carry my body back home
So oh you know, steady she goes
And everything will be fine

Now you walk out the backdoor
Just to lay beneath the trees
Your life it ain’t what it once was
As you fall to your knees

So goodbye Chicago
I’m back to LA

Dark is the water
So maybe they’ll
Come to carry my body
To carry it home

Track Name: In The Valley
Years from now what will our children say?
Was I tall, maybe small but did I love them at all?
Did I bring them hope for their day?

Days went by and you were the apple of my eye
All that changed but we stayed for our children’s sake
At least we gave it a try

It’s been a long time running
Down in the valley with you
A long time coming
From the day we said I do

Tuesday night as we drove up the 55
I was quiet, you were cold, conversation grew old
From the talk on the radio

So its come down to this faking our marital bliss
What is love who even knows but someday I hope
To find it on my own
