Fairfield 03:00
Fairfield There's a diner down the road They say it has a name But everyone who goes there They just call it the diner There was a library here But when it got old We filled it up with dynamite And watched it explode At Christmas time you could see the little Santas Wave their hands you could watch them for free But now when you walk these cold cavernous halls You'll shed a tear, now there's a fee There's a bush in the corner of the front yard With a hand that waves as the cars go by And every few years when the rains come down You could jump from your window splash all around In Fairfield You could get fries and gravy HEY! There's my brother Davey Playing softball early Sunday morning Some say Calandras, others say Calandras I don't give a damn just give me my bread In Fairfield, there used to be Good Tymes Some of these things They come and go But forever in my mind they'll stay Who did you know Stevenson or Churchill They prepared you for your future life So I threw all my change at the Space Invaders And defended our town from the missles in the sky In Fairfield You could get fries and gravy HEY! There's my brother Davey Playing softball early Sunday morning Some say Calandras, others say Calandras I don't give a damn just give me my cake In Fairfield, there used to be Good Tymes

Roadward Bound (free) 03:24
Mmmmm mmmmmmmm lai la la la lai Mmmmm mmmmmmmm lai la la la lai It feels good to be home But I've been sitting here too long The railway station calls my name Everybody thinks they know exactly how I'm feeling Is there still room for a one man band Who's destination clearly lies across the land I'm back on the road that's where I belong And this time I'm taking my love with me I'm bringing all my nicotine patches I ain't bringing any cigarettes or matches 'Cause I don't smoke anymore My guitar and magazines are all I need But nowhere as much as the girl I love Is there still room for a one man band Who's destination clearly lies across the land I'm back on the road that's where I belong And this time I'm taking my love with me I'm singing songs in places see all the strangers faces I'm sorry that I've been away so long And the night always ends too fast I look forward to the next time Now I'm gonna make this journey last Is there still room for a one man band Who's destination clearly lies across the land I'm back on the road that's where I belong And this time I'm taking my love with me And this time I'm taking my love with me

Final Flight (free) 02:51
I've gone over this A thousand times in my head Was it my fault Did I forget???? When I wake up in the morning And I look out to the western sky I wanna see you fly, see you flying home Was it the radio I should have checked it again Tested the frequencies Receiving transmissions fail Did you ever hear them? I've got this sinking feeling That I did you wrong Now all the days are too long She should have held up If the winds were too strong You could have made it If you brought me along Now your legend still lives on Tachometer, oil flow, fuel pressure CHECK Instrument panel, circuit breakers CHECK Stabilizers, landing gear, propellers CHECK Airspeed calibration, antenna ANTENNA! I've got this sinking feeling That I did you wrong Now the days are too long She should have held up If the winds were too strong You could have made it If you brought me along When I lay down and try to sleep I could almost hear the sound of your engines In my dreams I see the Electra Flying home

In Bright Falls (free) 02:30
Hey, here I am It's a beautiful day here In Bright Falls I hope nothing gets in my way But something don't seem right I feel safer in the light It's been two years Inspiriation it can't be found Suddenly my life is turned upside down I ran when I heard her scream (it's too late) They dragged her into the lake My name is Alan Wake And I'm a Writer But I don't remember writing this story And as these pages come to life I hope they help me find my wife I'm running (running running) Running through the night With the help of a flashlight The Taken they burn and ignite Here comes some more They just appear out of the thin air I'm never giving up on you The writing shows up on the walls Maybe that's a clue That takes me to where you are I'll travel any distance I don't care how far My name is Alan Wake And I'm a Writer But I don't remember writing this story My name is Alan Wake And I'm a Writer

Frostbite (free) 03:45
Dark clouds bring down the rain That freeze upon my window pane The fire in my heart is burning low But no one cares and the kitchens' cold Standing by the river just throwing stones But they bounce right off 'cause the rivers' cold This is where we'd go for walks alone Now I'd rather stay inside 'cause now It feels like I got frostbite from my Head down to my toes Wintertime is cold but its colder When I sit by the fireplace all alone You used to look into my eyes And that's all I'd need to see And I'd melt away Awaaaaaaaay Nothing was gained but all was lost My soul has turned to ice and singed with frost Trying hard to keep you in my mind But the memories fade as they pass through time I keep your pictures on my wall But sometimes I think my walls' too small It helps me keep my memories of you Alive It feels like I got frostbite from my Head down to my toes Wintertime is cold but its colder When I sit by the fireplace all alone You used to look into my eyes And that's all I'd need to see And I'd melt away, away And I'd melt away, away And I'd melt away, away And I'd melt away, away

Drag Me Down 03:20
Drag Me Down I want to be able to breathe underwater From the moment I saw you swimming there I couldn't help but stop and stare Into your eyes, how they hypnotize I take one step closer, you beckon me Your arms are open, begging me But don't drag me down 'cause I don't want to drown Just give me some time to learn To breathe in your world Don't drag me down Is this love or some crazy parlor trick Are you human or just a fish Filleted or steak, a tasty dish Or are you an angel sent from the deep blue sea You say I'm running out of time I need to choose to live or die But don't drag me down 'cause I don't want to drown Just give me some time to learn To breathe in your world But don't drag me down You promise me we'd stay as one forever Time was running short I fell into the sea And you dragged me down I drowned, died in your arms You filled me with life again Now I can breathe in your world You dragged me down (I left my life above the ground) You dragged me down (To your castle in the sand) You dragged me down

Welcome To Kabul Walking back to my hotel room Strange noises all around Couldn't see a goddamn thing The lights have all gone out What I thought I first heard Couldn't be further from the truth Bullets flying through the air Why does life seem to be unfair Will I ever see my beloved anymore As bombs explode outside my door As I lay down here in the corner of my room I feel my life slowly slip away Slip away Will I ever see my beloved anymore The bombs explode the ground swells and shakes the floor Six hours later Last wishes in my pocket We were saved But some won't live to see another day Its been too many years Since the war began Won't there ever be a time When we can live in peace again

Alone 03:38
I don't want to go to sleep tonight Don't want to close my eyes Don't want to drift away You tell me things will be alright You tell me that you'll never go You'll always be right here No matter how hard I try The sand gets thrown into my eyes I slowly spiral down Into the abyss where you can't be found Now I'm alone again My fingers clutch the air Where your hand once was I turn and you're not there I don't know where I am You left me here You left me Alone There's no one on the street The lights are out The emptiness and darkness holds me down I try to scream but there's no sound I try to run but my legs are frozen to the ground Why can't I find you Why do you always disappear I'll wrap my arms around you But when I look there's no one there Now I'm alone again My fingers clutch the air Where your hand once was I turn and you're not there I don't know where I am You left me here You left me You left me here You left me Alone
