Track Name: (Intro) Fast Sun (Live)
Restlessly racing
Through the day
Just to get to an end
No steady pacing
We're gunning it
Right round the bend
No need to worry
Cause everyone's driving just the same
We all need to hurry
The fast sun's the only one who's to blame

The lights they will turn
But your speed
Still it stays just the same
Tires will burn
And they'll burn
Till there's nothing remains
Time t'll turn
The wick gets consumed by the flame
All will be spurned
The fast sun's the only one who's to blame
Track Name: Desperate Terrain (Live)
Taraval,
Take me down
Through the fog
That's hanging all around
It's been so long
Since I've felt so sound
Windows down
And I'm grinning like a fool

With your head in the clouds
You wait for the rain
But you don't know how long
Until you'll see it again
But you only know
That these fields of grain
Will blow away in the dust
Of this desperate terrain

In the sun
They look so free
Everyone
Is smiling but me
Say what's wrong
Boy can't you see
It's a beautiful day won't you say
How can you disagree

With your head in the clouds
You wait for the rain
But you don't know how long
Until you'll see it again
But you only know
That these fields of grain
Will blow away in the dust
Of this desperate terrain

So I'll take
The long way home
Drive down 7th
See Market Street aglow
Makes me think
Of a time ago
When you sat there
Showing me all of San Francisco

With your head in the clouds
You wait for the rain
But you don't know how long
Until you'll see it again
But you only know
That these fields of grain
Will blow away in the dust
Of this desperate terrain
Track Name: New Bait (Live)
Tell me that my bait's
Sayin' let's be friends
But I'd rather that you be there
Holding my hand
Cast another line
With a worm rubber band
And I pray that next time
That my fish understands

I head upstream another mile or so
Cause that's where all the warmer fishes go
To cool off in the slowly melting snow
That's where I'll find my fish this I know

Early in the morning
With my rod in my hand
Gonna try a new bait
Different color rubber band
Something that says
I'm not looking for a friend
Just tryin' to find a fish
With a tender loving hand

I head upstream another mile or so
Cause that's where all the warmer fishes go
To cool off in the slowly melting snow
That's where I'll find my fish this I know
Track Name: Told You So (Live)
One day
When I'm playing this right
You'll say
Boy your head's strung on tight
One day
When you know where you'll go
I'll say I told you so
I told you so

Remember
Oh two years ago
You were
Just her friend at the show
I was damned, drunk and blind
And I didn't know
But you told me so
You told me so

I didn't know which way to go
I ain't never been good at reading the fork in the road
I took a few wrong turns
Few mistakes and lessons learned
Took so long I don't know why
It's not enough
Not enough
Not enough
Not enough, aw honey you're saying

One day
When my feet hit the ground
You'll say
Show me what's it you found
If you're
Pleased with what I've to show
You'll say I told you so
I told you so

I didn't know which way to go
I ain't never been good at reading the fork in the road
I took a few wrong turns
Few mistakes and lessons learned
Took so long I don't know why
It's not enough
Not enough
Not enough
When'll I hear you say, Don't you know
I told you so
I told you so
I told you so
I told you so.....
Track Name: Portland (Live)
Seems that lately
I've grown a little bit tired
Got a little too comfortable
Spent a little too much time
In one place and now
It's crept up from behind
In the rear-view mirror
I see my troubled mind
Once your city streets
Gave me peace and calm
Once your fog and lights
Helped to keep me war
Once your windy nights
Blew away all wrong
Now I find I search
For shelter from the storm

But every now and then
You'll check the map
And take a glance at the road
Just to see how much farther to go
Maybe we missed our turn long ago
Tell me how would you know

So I'll turn my eyes
North up the coast
Out of California
Where I've been the most
Maybe Portland will prove
To be a more generous host
In the fog it's easy
To hide a ghost

But every now and then
You'll check the map
And take a glance at the road
Just to see how much farther to go
Maybe we missed our turn long ago
Tell me how would you know

It seems that lately
I can't make up my mind
Did I hop on the train
At the wrong stop this time
But there's no getting off
So I'll sit down and unwind
Till I get to Portland
And I'm free from your kind
You're just a friend that's kind

But every now and then
You'll check the map
And take a glance at the road
Just to see how much farther to go
Maybe we missed our turn long ago
Tell me how would you know
