Track Name: Twilight
Haven't laughed this hard in a long time
I better stop now before I start crying
Go off to sleep in the sunshine
I don't want to see the day when it's dying

She's a sight to see
She's good to me
But I'm already somebody's baby
She's a pretty thing
And she knows everything
But I'm already somebody's baby

You don't deserve to be lonely
But those drugs you've got won't make you feel better
Pretty soon you'll find it's the only
Little part of your life you're keeping together

I'm nice to you
I could make it through
But you're already somebody's baby
I could make you smile
If you stayed a while
But how long will you stay with me, baby?

Because your candle burns too bright
Well I almost forgot it was twilight
Even if I think that you are right
Well I'm tired of being down, I got no fight

You're wonderful
And it's beautiful
But I'm already somebody's baby
And if I went with you
I'd disappoint you too
Well I'm already somebody's baby
Already somebody's baby
Track Name: Meet Me Here At Dawn
The empty tank is US
Expired milk is US
This is a test of trust
Better meet me here at dawn

Hop the wooden fence
Run past the sleeping hens
If you had any sense
You'd meet me here at dawn

Find the memory erase it from your mind
just give it up
Our friends and family will all get left behind
we'll give them up

I'm gone as light is shot
whether you come or not
I think you know you ought
To meet me here at dawn

Find the memory confront it like a crime
Beat it up
Your clothes and precious things will all get left behind
Give them up

Forget the painful past
Let go of all you grasp
This is the last I'll ask
To meet me here at dawn
Track Name: Casimir Pulaski Day
Goldenrod and the 4H stone
The things I brought you
When I found out you had cancer of the bone

Your father cried on the telephone
And he drove his car into the Navy yard
Just to prove that he was sorry

In the morning, through the window shade
When the light pressed up against your shoulder blade
I could see what you were reading

All the glory that the Lord has made
And the complications you could do without
When I kissed you on the mouth

Tuesday night at the Bible study
We lift our hands and pray over your body
But nothing ever happens

I remember at Michael's house
In the living room when you kissed my neck
And I almost touched your blouse

In the morning, at the top of the stairs
When your father found out what we did that night
And you told me you were scared

All the glory when you ran outside
With your shirt tucked in and your shoes untied
And you told me not to follow you

Sunday night when I cleaned the house
I found the card where you wrote it out
With the pictures of your mother

On the floor at the great divide
With my shirt tucked in and my shoes untied
I am crying in the bathroom

In the morning when you finally go
And the nurse runs in with her head hung low
And the cardinal hits the window

In the morning in the winter shade
On the first of March, on the holiday
I thought I saw you breathing

All the glory that the Lord has made
And the complications when I see his face
In the morning in the window

All the glory when he took our place
But he took my shoulders and he shook my face
And he takes and he takes and he takes
Track Name: David Watts
I am a dull and simple lad
Cannot tell water from champagne
And I have never met the Queen
And I wish I could have all he has got
I wish I could be like David Watts

And when I lie on my pillow at night
I dream I could fight like David Watts
And lead the school team to victory
And take my exams and pass the lot

Wish I could be like David Watts
Wish I could be like David Watts
Conduct my life like David Watts
Wish I could be like David Watts

He is the head boy at the school
He is the captain of the team
His is so gay and fancy free
And I wish all his money belonged to me
I wish I could be like David Watts

And all the girls in the neighborhood
They try to go out with David Watts
They try their best but can't succeed
For he is of pure and noble breed

Wish I could be like
Wish I could be like
Wish I could be like
