Track Name: Chevy Nova 1979
I think I saw you driving down the wrong way down the highway last night
I think I saw your eyes as you burned out of sight
As pale as the moon, as wild, as bright
Blackberry body, Chevy Nova 1979

Run it out
Drop it down
Rev it up
The speed of sound

I blaze on, my mind now in over-drive
Where is she coming from, is there anybody left alive
I can’t shake that frame, how the sweat in the dash light shines
Do I turn and follow or is it better just to leave her behind

Run it out
Drop it down
Rev it up
The speed of sound

Goddamn gasoline love
It burns me out
Drag like a strike-anywhere
Along the ground

Shit, I think I hear sirens, there’s got to be more than one
So I cut down the back roads that snake along route 31
My smile it widens, my heart pumps a machine gun
I know where to find you and I know just where we’ll run

Run it out
Drop it down
Rev it up
The speed of sound
Track Name: Diamonds In The Floorboards
I have never lived without you
Though been gone six years ago
I hear echoes in the hallway
I see shadows I think are ghosts
I smell perfume in my bed sheets
Smeared makeup on my clothes
I find diamond earrings in the floorboards
LEAVE ME ALONE

Found your picture in the drawer
Why I keep it, man, I’m not sure
I see Parliaments crushed on the curb
That’s your lipstick, yeah, I’m sure
Am I crazy? You’ve been around
I see you everywhere, I’m about to drown
I’m so horny, I’m about to crack
WHEN ARE YOU COMING BACK
Track Name: Life Goes On (Until It Don't)
I could have been a lawyer
I bet that would have made my Dad proud
I could be driving some luxury car
Instead of this old van that I got now

I could have been a surgeon
So many ladies tell me I have great hands
I could take long vacations
And lose my Rolex in the sand

I got a good thing going
These choices have been my own
I got a good thing going because I know
Life goes on until it don’t

I should have been an actor
I’ve been acting most my life
I’d make millions a picture
And have to give it all to my ex-wife

I got a good thing going
These choices have been my own
I got a good thing going because I know
Life goes on until it don’t

So what are you waiting for?
You got something better to do?
We’re all just getting older
And uglier

Now, my Dad gave me this guitar
And it requires my tender hands
And I quit lying to my girlfriend
And that van, that’s for the band, man

I got a good thing going
These choices have been my own
I got a good thing going because I know
Life goes on until it don’t

I got a good thing going
These choices have been my own
I got a good thing going because I know
Life goes on until it
