Track Name: The Weight
this mountain will be broken down
to boulders found in prairie towns
we gather stones to feel the weight
to feel the power it must take

but now it's time to wait

she climbed a mountain carrying your weight
all of the rocks and sand and hate
we carry everything not said
we take it home and into our beds

but now it's time to wait
and sit down and rest our weary feet
and lay down these stones and leave
and lay down these stones and leave

and now it's time to leave

this mountain will be broken down
to boulders found in prairie towns
a stone for everything unsaid
I sleep with stones inside my bed

but it's time to wait.
Track Name: Stone
I asked to marry this old house
it creaked and shuttered at the sound
the wind blows nightly in these ghosts
I sleep alone but I am found

when autumn came and took the leaves
I gathered bones to build a bed
deep in your heart I found a stone
a stone can make a faithful friend

and all these years I'll hold.

you know I love these rock walls.
a stone can be a quiet friend
this work may be left undone
and we may leave these things unsaid

and all these years I'll hold
and all these stones I know.
and all these years I'll hold.
Track Name: Take Care of You
I'll come to take care of you
when the white old winter blows through
leaving trails of cold windy dunes
and racks us up in cold pantry rooms

I'll come to meet you in the water
oh this tub ain't big enough for you and me
so I'll wrapped this towel around your shoulders
and I'll let you try and do the same for me

but don't you dare try and take care of me

we'll the love it fades without warning
so I crawl into your bed in the morning
this winter desert scene expands the faraway sky
you ask me how did I ever survive

we'll don't you dare try and take care of me

go on and tell me your story
from a different point of view this time
tell me how your heart jumped on a runaway train
and how we were two runaways on the line

we are not going somewhere
this time I'm staying right here
don't you dare try and take care of me

we are not going somewhere
this time I'm staying right here
don't you dare try and take care of me
