Track Name: FM 157 Part II
There's nothing I'd rather do
than drive down FM 157 with you
Track Name: Tall Buildings
Good morning Texas
How is your day? Did you sleep okay?
Tall buildings scrape the sky
but it never whines, it only cries

The sun will never set on
The sun will never set on
The sun will never set on
these skies
these skies

Paved parking lots appear-
how they drive and where they steer
sunsets fill up the air
planes run through clouds and disappear

The sun will never set on
The sun will never set on
The sun will never set on
these skies
these skies
these skies
these skies
Track Name: Señor Bird
Uno dos tres
quatro cinqo seis
uno dos tres
everybody claps and says

Well Señor Bird , if I were you
I'd surely take advantage
of those beautiful views
offered by that starry skyline
night after night

You bet you bottom feather
I'd be up there with you
flying with you

No more aeropuertos to connect amigos
Uno uno makes dos
as it seems overseas,
that's a problem you see

But you're not bogged down by these material things
just a little oil spill in your wings
sadly that's all it takes
to ruin your splendid day
your splendid life
your splendid songs
I go on and on

I would like to fly away
any city, night or day

never have to migrate
Track Name: Corduroy Jacket
I will let you borrow my corduroy jacket
all you've got to do is ask of it
I will let you wear it
if you're feeling sad and lonely
I will let it comfort you all night

I don't want you to sweat
if it gets lost, stolen or wet
I will always find it in my heart

What's that, my good friend,
you don't need it any longer?
well, neither do I.

Neither did the guy who gave it to me
so pass it along and sing this song
pass it along and sing this song
pass it along and sing this song
pass it along and sing this song
pass it along and sing this song,
sing this song
sing this song

I will let you borrow my corduroy jacket;
all you've got to do is ask of it.
Track Name: Away, Away!
Rain has come and I'm not right where I want to be
Sitting here with you laughing, talking
about nothing particular at all
is that my fault?

Lying here in bed my wishes they grow so tall
how can seven days perpetuate and grow?
'til I see an eternity
I must go
I must walk away

Why's my gait be so straight and forward progress?
please permit the time to close my eyes and rest
good news can have bad timing too
well it's time
and I love you
