Track Name: Hold On
Out with my honey for a Sunday drive
We’ll take the bridge, sakes alive
I don’t know dear it’s so damn old
Not to worry it’s good as gold

Remember that time when the circus crossed?
Oh come on now, just two bears lost
But Old Maid Pickle went into the bay
Well nobody liked her anyway

She’s been standing since ‘31
Used to be the strongest gal under the sun
Girders are bending and the rivets are popped
We’re on the deck and we can’t stop

Hold on (Jiminy Cricket), hold on (Gallopin’ Gertie), hold on (Buckle up, baby)
Hold on, baby, she won’t let us down

Say there honey that’s a steep incline
Don’t worry darlin’ we’ll be fine
But the bridge is up and the mouth is wide
I’ll gun it good to the other side

Oh dear lord we’re in midair
Well then flap your wings I don’t care!
There goes the bear, Miss Pickle too
But we’ll fly right over just me and you!

She’s been standin’ since ‘31
Used to be the strongest gal under the sun
Cables are strong and the paint is bright
We made it over and we’re out of sign

Hold on (Ahhha!), hold on (I got it, I got it, I got it), hold on (Watch out, honey!)
Hold on, baby, she won’t let us

Hold on (Grind my gears), hold on (Ahhh!), hold on (Double Dutch it)
Hold on baby she won’t let us down
No, no
Hold on baby she won’t let us down
Track Name: House Of Song
Figuring the distance in between
Here and where you’re supposed to be
The price of gas keeps going up
I’ve got to get back home no matter what

Little toy planes are flying
Little toy cars are driving along
I feel like I am finally
Home in the house of song
In the house of song

Gathering the change lost in my car
Tethering a thread from star to star
An arrow points to the Northern Lights
St. Christopher, keep me safe tonight

Take me from one place to another

Little toy planes are flying
Little toy cars are driving along
I feel like I am finally
Home in the house of song
In the house of song
Home in the house of song
In the house of song
Track Name: Rivets
This is a story of a man I know from Crivitz
He walked across the bridge and tried to count the rivets
And when he lost count about the halfway mark
He had to start over with a flashlight in the dark

The rivets in the dark did a number on his head
They made some creepy bumpy shadows and his batteries went dead
The moon wasn’t shinin’ and he didn’t want to fail
He shimmied up the girders and he counted them like brail

17,721, 17,722, 17,723
I think you get the gist of this
It’s not trigonometry

Some people say that Mr. Crivitz is a fool
But can you learn about the water if you don’t jump in the pool
You can go online to get the job done
But if you Google everything you do, you miss out on the fun

17,721, 17,722, 17,723
I think you get the gist of this
Would you get the spider off of me

17,721, 17,722, 17,723
I think you get the gist of this
I think somebody’s texting me

This is a story of a man I know from Crivitz
Track Name: So Far
So far
I have come to
Retreat from beneath you
That’s why I’ve learned
Let it roll

I was to down and out to
Compare the notes within you
And now I just say
Let it roll

I see the light, my dear
You won’t get the best of me here
I like when I have things
To say just like the bird sings
You take my tongue, I let it roll

Kiss me and forsake me
You think that you can break me
My god carries the weights
Let it roll

I see the light, my dear
And you won’t get the best of me here
I see the light, my dear
You won’t get the best of me here
Track Name: The End
The drawbridge is up, and I’m stuck right here
Just what’s goin’ on ain’t exactly clear
I guess I can’t go nowhere ‘til the bridge goes down
So I’m outta my car and I’m lookin’ around

There just ain’t a whole lot to see
I can’t see where I’m goin’, only where I been
I know that this ain’t no big catastrophe
But I really can’t imagine the end

Well, we moved in together, now I’m stuck right here
The tv is on and I just got another beer
She went to bed without invitin’ me
So one more beer is about all I think this is gonna be

What the hell happened to my lady love
Don’t feel like her lover, better feel like a friend
Once we were just so crazy much in love
I really can’t imagine the end
I really can’t imagine the end
Track Name: Beautiful Me
I’ve been up and I’ve been down
I gave it all in this old town
I know you tried to tear me down
But I’m still standing tall and proud

I swallowed pride and other things
I open wide and spread my wings
So this is what my true love brings
I dream too much and talk too loud

Is it so hard to see
All the beauty in me
Have I ever let you drown

You say I’m old and suck you dry
My time has come I need to die
Staying strong, I’m staying high
I’m mad as hell and you know why

There ain’t no way they’re takin’ me
Deconstructin’ breakin’ me
All your talk ain’t shakin’ me

Is it so hard to see
All the beauty in me
Have I ever let you drown

Is it so hard to see
All the beauty in me
Have I ever let you drown

Is it so hard to see
All the beauty in me
Have I ever let you drown
Track Name: 'Til It's Gone
I didn’t want you
But I guess I need you
I didn’t see you
While I was waiting for you
You made me an offer
And I refused it
Still I can’t stand to lose it

You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone
Until it’s gone, until it’s gone
You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone
Until it’s gone, until it’s gone
You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone

I had the answer
Before the question
Please forgive me
If I fail to mention
I have to have you
Only when you’re allusive
Easy come so I couldn’t use you

You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone
Until it’s gone, until it’s gone
You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone
Until it’s gone, until it’s gone
You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone

I had a plan (I don’t want you)
Simple and true (but I need you)
I had a plan (I don’t need you)
Simple and true (but I want you)

You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone
Until it’s gone, until it’s gone
You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone
Until it’s gone, until it’s gone
You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone
Track Name: Two Bridges
Goin’ one place off into another
On the way somethin’s yet to be discovered
Stones like roses, diamonds in the dew
Don’t matter what you see, it’s what it means to you

When the sun goes down and the night unravels
We’re only as noble as the road we travel

The path leads you down to the water
One bridge mother, one bridge daughter
One bridge old and one bridge new
How do you know which one to choose

When the sun goes down and the night unravels
We’re only as noble as the road we travel

And when the sun goes down and the night unravels
We’re only as noble as the road we travel
