Track Name: We Almost Made It
I could see for miles down the shore–
no one coming, no one going
nobody to close the distance

When there's nothing to catch up to
you could say I almost made it
I almost made it up.

I let the summer slip away
did almost nothing to win it back.

Then we backed up in the bushes
tried to make some kind of shelter.

When there's no one coming for you
you can try and still not make it.

We almost made it
we almost made it up.
Track Name: It Sure Was Good
Water's there
land is there
that is all.

Dad is gone
all the way
back home.

Winter came
not a drop of water.

Spring again
Virginia again.

We'll hide it away for now
keep it out of view.

You had on every last
thing you owned.

It sure was good
me & you.
Track Name: Winter Is Here
Got us a car
it's as big as a whale
and I'm taking you
over fucked-up land.

Now that our axle is bent
me & you are italic slants
so, find me a new front wheel.

We are two
sunflowers at dusk
waiting for another day.

Now that our axle is bent
me & you are italic slants
so, find me a new front wheel.

Go tell everybody that Winter is here.
Track Name: Walter (or, The Wheel)
I looked everywhere.
How long were we gone?

The trees are all bended
the signs are all wrong.

Don't you remember how low it can go?

Way out, I'm talking way, way out in the sea–
that's where all the things I've done wrong
came to be.

You take the wheel and we'll see where it goes,
that is the way we will grow to the coast.

I'll be the wheel and we'll see where it goes,
like it or not we will grow to the coast.

Don't you remember how low it can go?

Way out, I'm talking way, way out.
