Track Name: The Kitchenette
sat in the first booth in a diner on Michigan
drinking black coffee we were both smiling
I ordered the breakfast special you had the burger and fries
we chatted back and forth about our separate lives

flipped through the quarter juke settled on Conway Twitty
talked about your band and about our different cities
I told you I like to smoke cigarettes at the Coney Isle
you laughed at all my jokes you told me you think smoking's nice

each time I saw you smile I wondered if you might like my smile

the waitress took our check she said she liked our talk
then you opened up the door for me to a snowy sidewalk
and on the drive home we were both clicking our mints
I dreamed about us sharing a chilly peppermint kiss

each time I saw your eyes I'd look away 'cause I'm so shy but all the while I hoped you might like me too
Track Name: January
it's cold snow's falling here I'm sure you are chilled where you are
light beauty and wind swirl round my head and push my heart

frost kisses my face tickles my mind back to then
you came in from the cold a stranger to me but not for long

and though we're miles apart I wrap up in warmth and think of the night when we met

I watched you pluck at your strings and sing of the things I know so well
the words they fell from your mouth and lay down to rest in my soul
the girl that I was back then needed to give all I had
and on a cold winter night amidst a new year I found my friend

and though we're miles apart I wrap up in warmth and think of the night when we met
Track Name: Let Me Go
days go by and the script stays the same
I'm watching for light wish you'd say my name
I feel you near but you're so far away
if you don't want this well then why do you stay
your words say you love me but I can see you want to leave

let me go you know I won't walk away
I'm too weak to go but I'm strong enough to stay
you loved me once and now you push me away
if this is done let's stop this game we play
your words say you love me but I can see you want to leave

time marches on but the gap remains
the love we shared it just isn't the same
I can't break through and we can't go back
the memories we made they won't save what we had
your words say you love me but I can see you want to leave

let me go you know I won't walk away
I'm too weak to go but I'm strong enough to stay
you loved me once and now you push me away
if this is done let's stop this game we play
your words say you love me but I can see you want to leave

days go by
Track Name: Walk Away
walk away from all this pain walk away
turn my back on your ghost haunt me no more
you were there now you're not here said you'd stay
now I'm left cold alone so full of fear

well you said you'd stay by me forever now you're just a memory
left me crying broken hopeless why did you lie to me

now you're back calling me babe you want a chance
your love makes me so dumb sick with romance
this back and forth tears me apart leave me be
as it turns out you are the devil stop messing with me

well you said you'd stay by me forever now you're just a memory
left me crying broken hopeless why did you lie to me

walk away turn my back say goodbye to all we had
