the letters that you wrote me from jail won't fade they won't fade the lightning that struck me, it said don't wait don't wait the night that I left you you screamed no way no way wrapped your hands around my neck and claimed you're dead stole my husbands gun and fired twice at your heart your heart made it cross country in three days three days three days didn't take you long to track me down please stay please stay ghosts are so much easier to love your ghost the letters that you wrote me from jail won't fade they won't fade the lighting that struck me, it said don't wait don't wait didn't take you long to track me down please stay please stay ghosts are so much easier to love your ghost

Death Wish 03:51
i've been careless with fire jumped in the stormy sea thunder and lighting never scared me death wish i had a death wish when i was young took rides with strangers made love in their cars did drugs in dirty bathrooms woke up naked seeing stars death wish i had a death wish when i was young danger escaped me the night that we met so i put it all behind me but i have no regrets death wish i had a death wish when i was young death wish i had a death wish and now it's gone
3.
you've been waiting and i've been watching for the sun on this dark morning to rise, to rise and save my soul you've been saying and i've been thinking that the devils got ahold of my soul, my soul but it feels so good yeah, it feels so good you were sleeping and i'd been drinking when the devil took ahold and he told me yeah, he told me to break your bones
4.
We Buy Gold 04:17
with my grandmother's gold we hit the road but we had no chance so i ran away and changed my name, again yeah, again misery loves company they say misery loves company they say misery love company and gold suffers fools for days so i gave all of it away billie said, "don't give it away" but i did yeah, i did and every day since, you've been repaying me, in spades for that dance misery loves company they say misery loves company they say misery love company and gold suffers fools for days so i gave all of it away misery loves company, they say but they lie in big, bright, bold, neon lights it said, "we buy gold" misery loves company they say misery loves company they say misery love company and gold suffers fools for days so i gave all of it away
5.
it was a long ride home and i know you didn't mean at least half of what you said trouble it comes at a half past two when the whiskey settles in a perfect mistake but the bruises you make the bruises you make i'm collecting the bones of the ones who loved me most i keep them on a shelf death, it hides the truth from the lies seen through bloodshot eyes the ghosts in this house see the bruises you make the bruises you make it was a long ride home and you know i didn't mean at least half of what i said trouble it comes at a half past two when the whiskey settles in the ghosts in this house see the bruises i make the bruises i make

about

I grew up in New England, and my memories from that time, good and bad, will always haunt me. Even all the way out here, in the Pacific Northwest. These songs sum up that feeling of wanting to run from where you're from, and the ghosts that trail behind you if you do. Thanks for listening. xo
