Track Name: Old Youth
I swear we won't be here for long
so let's have another drink.
Spin yarns of ghosts and childhood.
All you ever do is think.
Well I'm thinking of a way
to untie your bitter tongue
so slow the forest will grow old.
Old youth and aged young.
One by one we'll fade away
so let's gather 'round the fire.
Cowboy chords for a cowboy song.
Old youth and aging desire.

I swear we won't be here for long.
Let's try to take it slow.
Sorry for everything that I can never know
but here's a song to help it go.
Well I'm thinking of a way
to unlock your guarded heart.
So far you've only let me down.
Old youth can never part.
One by one we'll fade away
so let's gather 'round the fire.
Cowboy chords for a cowboy song.
Old youth and aging desire.
Track Name: Shoes
I'll help you pick out your shoes.
I'll help you style your hair.
I might be singing the blues
but I'll help you pick out your shoes.

I'll help you with your love letters,
Checking the syntax and such.
I'll pick the lint from your sweater
in hopes it'll make you feel better.

I'll drive you cross town through traffic
and drop you at your love's front door.
Listen to stories so graphic
'til you don't need to tell them no more.

I'll be the fool to catch you.
I'll be the fool for sure.
If I'm not the one you should choose
I'll still help you pick out your shoes.
