Track Name: Steady now
put the book down and call up a friend
the one who is eager to hear of your sorrows
who says that the things that you're doing are not who you are

take your clothes off and jump into bed
and search for that happy thought, the one from before
about how pleasant it would be if people wished they could be like you

throw your shoes on and hop on your bike
the cold air is good for you, might want to stop somewhere
to pray with your friends
as you search for a love you can live inside of

lay your heart down and call it a day
it's so hard to see you when fear is consuming you

when will you see yourself?
try to forgive yourself!
...you just can't help yourself...
Track Name: Ruth
Coming through the filter, sweet upon my lips
the smoke mollifies the lung into which it rips
In a sunlit tavern, in a corner booth
sucking stale popcorn, there I met dear Ruth
She'd only just lost the baby, seven months and a week
Drank a month of Seagrams, kissed me on the cheek

Never would've been my style
But I could spot it from a mile
That it would mean a world of good
If we got friendly for a while

O what a dear my dear girl might have been

In my nine dollar room, there was nothing on TV
She asked if she could use my toothbrush, "It don't bother me."
"I thank you for the company" she most solemnly said
When I woke the next morning, she had fallen from the bed

Quite a sight I have to say
Where once had blossomed a bouquet
Now all but wilting like a leaf
In the ruthless light of day

O what a dear my dear girl might have been

Ruth, sweet girl, there's no place for you
here in my little nine dollar room
