Bucky Really gorgeous alt/country. Just the way I like it. Heartfelt, warm, dusty, dirty, fun, sad, and all around fantastic. Perfect twangy combo of rock n roll, country attitude, and alternative melodies.

David grew up in a small town Working night shifts at the liquor store All he ever cared about was making sure him and Katie much more Oh how life can go upside down so wrong with a single mistake but now Katie's gone David's dreaming about different days They through their love would win that bank had enough of money to spare In and out, 5 minutes at most, Didnt even think anyone would even care Oh how life can go upside down so wrong with a single mistake but now Katie's gone David's dreaming about different days Just as the clock hit quarter to four right before the bank was closing it's doors, It was all going to plan 'til Katies gun went off in her hand Such a strange noise in this quiet town the cops ran in and cut her down, David screamed as he watched love die And that's why Katie, aint by his side Oh how life can go upside down so wrong with a single mistake but now Katie's gone David's dreaming about different days

Victoria 02:16
Oh Victoria its not like it used to be my heart just isnt in it and i think you can see. Latley I've had so many sleepless nights just trying to forget all those good times It wasnt like this even a few months ago but then something changed and i felt the pull. And im getting so tired of running around trying to fall back in love in this town. Oh Victoria You know I've hated you before but this time i swear I hate you even more. And all the people that i once knew You've changed them forever maybe I've changed too

Well how fast things can change when you're keeping track. And how the headlights turn to beams when theyre flying past. There was a time when we would fight with swords made of sticks, but now we yell at eachother with our hands in fists. Whatever happened to us? How our bones quickly grew old. Whatever happened to love? Didnt know time would take a toll. Whatever happened to nights? We spent watching the stars explode. We were nothing but fools falling for fools. You used to say youd leave this town, never even look back. How that scared me ghostly pale that you could leave me like that. There was a time when we would cry about the happy things, but now just seem to cry about all the things I sing. Whatever happened to us? How our bones quickly grew old. Whatever happened to love? Didnt know time would take a toll. Whatever happened to nights? We spent watching the stars explode. We were nothing but fools falling for fools. So when the truth comes down and ill be left with the sound of a goodbye, and a falling glass it seemed to come so quick with out a reason for it but here i am crying all alone Whatever happened to us? How our bones quickly grew old. Whatever happened to love? Didnt know time would take a toll. Whatever happened to nights? We spent watching the stars explode. We were nothing but fools falling for fools. We were nothing but fools falling for fools.

I said wait I need just a moment for me think collect all my thoughts cause if I'm leaving tonight who I thought would be my life I need to know this is right I didn't think that I was this kind of woman I didn't know I had it in my bones for me to leave behind the man who saw me in white but I'll leave, in the darkness of the night So let's forget these gold ring on our finger So let's forget this town where we live Lets run the road, till our legs run no more Let's run like fire, in the wind I tried to stop thinking about her and for a second I felt a shake for that woman back home who I'd now left alone but the heart, can be a hard thing to chase I know its wrong to do what I'm doing to toss another poor heart aside but can I declare a love at home, no longer there we're running, for a new way to live So let's forget these gold ring on our finger So let's forget this town where we live Lets run the road, till our legs run no more Let's run like fire, in the wind

Spectre 02:56
I've been leaning against walls, hoping to fall through, like some kind of ghost, you don't want to talk to. I'm just worried you'll wake up and see through the act, that I'm bad at treading water and I'm falling fast. These old parts have gotten bent they don't seem to fit, together like we once so comfortably did. I guess cracking comes like so many other things with age. But I'm getting bad at running without falling on my face.

I wanna go where the wind blows where the rivers all flow out. Follow the lights up to heaven where I'll want to, lay me down. But I'm searching for, some place to call, a little peaceful part of my own. I can feel the rain upon me and the blue birds are singing me a song. Telling me, that I've found it, that I've been there, all along But I'm searching for, some place to call, a little peaceful part of my own.
7.
Bury me in your light, for I, Don't want a story that I have to hide So you dance naked, and black eyed woke up singing a song of empty pride I've been taking all the days, that you've been giving me hoping one day I can take, a little more. Cause I have never been one to, have a love that's something, I can't forget. Your mother speaking, I saw her standing there with a daughter she never knew. You said I was so crass, saying something like that, But that's just what I do. I've been taking all the days, that you've been giving me hoping one day I can take, a little more. Cause I have never been one to, have a love that's something, I can't forget. I've been taking all the pain, that you've been giving me hoping one day I can take, a little more. Cause I have never been one to, have a love that's something, I can't forget.

I was half the man I thought I'd be by the time I hit age 23 Ii was half the man I thought I'd become. Do you think you'd be proud of me if I told you all that I have seen do you think you'd be proud of what I've done? Another spinning wheel in all the things I feel, would it break your heart to know, what I've become I feel the rain upon my neck and the trouble that's begun again, a subtle reminder of the things I've lost. As the wind blows through needles in the trees I can hear the change it's following me and only the wind will know where I will run Another spinning wheel in all the things I feel, would it break your heart to know, what I've become

Maps 02:30
I've been reading the maps, written on the back of your hands trying to learn where they begin and they end. As you whisper to my face, I won't know why I won't give up, spreading your lies. As you come, to me screaming out my name. I won't beg you to stop. She said I'd rather be she said I'd rather be she said I'd rather be, anywhere but here.
11.
Lie To Me 03:31
As I came through the door you saw right through me as loud as the creaking in the floors beneath my feet. The blackness of my coat reflected in your eyes made me feel like losing was maybe worth a try. Some quick-witted bullshit came pouring out of me while constantly forgetting submission could set me free. For war has never been won just by a man counting the callouses he makes on his hands She said lie to me like I know you need the air you breathe and through your skin your hearts beating faster still as you come to me saying your sorry She said lie to me like I know you need the air you breathe and through your skin your hearts beating faster still as you come to me saying your sorry

Words 03:59
Well in truth I've never been one to mince my words. For years I've tripping on my tongue. And for what it's worth, I've been a captain on a sinking ship one I've named for you, and I'm headed right in to a storm a journey into the blue. Well I know we've been mistreating ourselves since we came to know where all the whispers can lead us and where they eventually go. For what can I hold on to, if there's nothing there to grab? The floor's been falling beneath my feet ever since I learned to stand Like lightening traveling through my skin clouds cracking through veins I will let me words do the same They say a man will go far just to climb the banks, only to find the fear is him. For every story of the sea as it came to me, I was too far gone to live. But there you were, the night came and cut up the sails I was racing to the other side you said don't let go you've a soul I could know but it was too late to try. So I was giving up finding any sense of self when it all came crashing down I was buzzing like a bee without a sense of doubt just waiting to be found Like lightening traveling through my skin clouds cracking through veins I will let me words do the same Wait, for these words to break wait for what I have to say. Wait, for these words to break wait for what I have to say. Wait, for these words to break (but I've been trying so long) wait for what I have to say. (but all these words, they come out so wrong) Wait, for these words to break (but I've been trying so long) wait for what I have to say. (but all these words, they come out so wrong)

Siblings 05:35
Brother can you tell me now where I went wrong and how all of these promises have taken so long? Why I can't seem to finish what i start even when I know it tears you apart Sister was it too hard for you to believe that this could come from anyone anyone but me? And how all this blood that races through my veins has never ran been more sure its never more the same Brother know I've been true when it seemed like a lie but sometimes the honesty is beautiful when it dies. Its a trigger of sorts for things I don't know its a trigger of sorts to letting things go Sister know that I was true Even when it felt so wrong but I never gave up singing this song And how all the blood that races through these veins has never been more sure been more the same
