Track Name: Annalyne
Everybody's a burned out candle
Everybody a faded pair of eyes
I don't know how you do what you do but
I don't know and I won't ever criticize

I've been waiting out front all hours of the night
waiting on you honey
waiting on you Annalyne

In the earliest hours of the morning
In the cigarette smoke and broken light
everybody is searching for something
to fill up all of the loneliness inside

I've been waiting out front all hours of the night
waiting on you honey
waiting on you Annalyne

Waiting on you Annalyne

I know the way that you curse at the mirror
and pick apart all the flaws in your design
but anybody would do your damage
anybody would take you out of these arms of mine

I've been waiting out front all hours of the night
waiting on you honey
waiting on you Annalyne

Waiting on you Annalyne

And all of the dreams I had were born and shattered
before you care
and now it's the fighting for those things that matter
when I see you there
Track Name: A Hundred Times
You're painting pictures of the way the forest plays with you
just when you're lying in her vines
I meant to tell you how I felt before the summer
Before your hair you went and dyed

You found somebody and he treats you like he ought to
You see a future in his eyes
It ain't so hard to see the things you love about him
And it ain't so hard from here to see how good you are

And I doubt my hopes of you and I
cause I know, deep down, you're satisfied with you
and I'm wasting all my time
On chasing love away inside
cause I fall each night a hundred times for you
A hundred times for you

Some people change and move away and find another
Some people hold on things too long
Maybe for me I'll be someone else's dream
Maybe you'll still be there lying under every star

And I doubt my hopes of you and I
cause I know, deep down, you're satisfied with you
and I'm wasting all my time
On chasing love away inside
cause I fall each night a hundred times for you
A hundred times for you

And all the things you are in open spaces
And all the dreams we had that now you're making
now you're making
Track Name: Alabama
Below the Mason Dixon
And just below at that noise in Birmingham
I was born in comfort
Born a southern man

In Alabama

When I met my Virginia
she was more than I could ever understand
She took these hands of grandeur
and made them relevant

In Alabama

We lost our shirt in 54
When Virginia had been dying for integration
Back then you lost all you had
if you dared to stand against their segregation

So we packed up all we had
started things again
built up our new firm for civil action
Fought for everything we ever had
In Alabama

Good friend of ours made trouble
Sparked up Montgomery
We bailed her out on the double
that Edgar Nixon and me
