Lyrics

All songs written by Jenny Reynolds. All rights reserved. But sing along if you like.

A lonely aging woman says her troubles come in threes
Every time she gets to two she prays the rosary
Days turn into months, punch a clock, pay the bills
One day she decided to forget to take her pills
For every ounce of worry, and all that she believes
She never felt the glory of the sound of the wind blowing through the leaves

For all that breathing in
Don’t you want to let it out somehow
For all that breathing in
Don’t you want to let it out somehow

He’s up against her bumper
He can tell she knows he’s there
She’s got bad eyes but he wants to fly and he really don’t care
He works rotating tires, sweaty shirt and greasy hands
He’s hot and tired and he ain’t wired to give a God damn
His radio’s rockin’, she slows to make the curve
And people on the sidewalk say he never even swerved
He just flew through the air

For all that breathing in
Don’t you want to let it out somehow
For all that breathing in
Don’t you want to let it out somehow

I work and fight I try and try to meet the plans I made
I make every destination just in time to wish I’d stayed
Where I can stop the motion, feel the earth, smell the wind
And things are never over when I want them to begin
Taste the sweetest honey, and the salt from every tear
Hanging on to stories that echo in my ears so they won’t fade

For all that breathing in
Don’t you want to let it out somehow
For all that breathing in
Don’t you want to let it out somehow

Taste the sweetest honey, and the salt from every tear
Hanging on to stories that echo in my ears so they won’t fade

For all that breathing in
Don’t you want to let it out somehow
For all that breathing in
Don’t you want to let it out somehow

All that breathing in
Don’t you want to let it out somehow
For all that breathing in
Don’t you want to let it out
somehow
Still life, no breeze, more gangs and blood in the streets No work, no one left that we know, so we long for a place where gardenias will grow

There is a road running north so I’m told That you drive through the mountains when you leave what you know

Stay safe until, I know you will, cross the border and find us a home ‘til then I will wait by a window and hope I won’t know a life on my own

There is a road running north so I’m told That you drive through the mountains when you leave what you know

We said we would go there; you left before me Said you’d call from Laredo, when you left I believed

Some nights I look at the stars and think how long where and how far Does your hope bloom like roses or sting like a thorn Guns rule our cities and we have been warned to believe

In a road running north so I’m told That you drive through the mountains when you leave what you know

I still talk like you’re somewhere, won’t believe you are gone Make a wish of a worry, and find you’re alone If you dream you’re in heaven, are you finally home
I am in an airport sitting all alone
Watching other’s stories and inventing some of my own
A couple sees their first born off, tears in pairs of eyes
This is the way we say goodbye

They used to be an item, used to share a bed
Went to fancy parties turning everybody’s heads
Now they sit across a table texting their replies
This is the way we say goodbye

All that we have is all that we are
Skin and heart and bone
It’s the way that we love no matter how hard
That’s making heaven home

Going, flowing cloud to cloud
She’s on her way and I’m crying out loud
Wishes hopes and all our dreams kept us from the whys
This is the way we say goodbye
She's still wearing her high school ring. He left town nine months in She had a girl, and cried her tears He's been gone for fifteen years. He's gone, but she'll never let him go.

Each day comes like the one before She's thinking 'bout him more and more He took her out 'cause he was bored Stole her love in a brand-new Ford. He's gone, but she'll never let him go.

She breaks down and wonders where he is. Remembers every word he said, and every kiss. This is her life, there go those years, Each new day the same old fears. He's gone, but she'll never let him go.

He knows that she had his little girl. He knows that they brought a life into this great big world. But he don't know her face, don't know her name, She's on his mind, just the same. He's gone, but she'll never let him go. He's gone, but she'll never let him go.
Dressed up in a shiny town
Limosines and beaded gowns
Share a dance, wear a smile
Hide your heart and sit awhile
Cast your net in flats or heels, pay no mind to how it feels
Who's got a car, who lights the flame, who got burned and who got laid

If you do anything to lose your soul or show your seems
You'll know everything of love and gasoline

If you know me and I know you
Shake my hand like strangers do
But don't say a thing, please just pretend
Too much to lose if we are friends
People act like they know your name
Tell easy lies and skip the shame
When they sing a song they read the words
They talk the talk like mockingbirds

If you do anything to lose your soul or show your seems
You'll know everything of love and gasoline

Do you care if he's insincere
Does she drink gin like you drink beer
Strike a match, make a bet
Stay as long as a cigarette
The bill is high and the lights are low
Don't ask for a truth you don't want to know
Who left the bar, who took the blame, for mockingbirds and cheap champagne

If you do anything to lose your soul or show your seems
You'll know everything of love and gasoline
