Track Name: Superior
She lives in a house two blocks from the lake
Her son named Joe’s in the second grade
And her husband works six hours south outside Milwaukee

She gets lonely, it’s not too bad
Before bedtime, Joe misses his dad
And she works part-time tending bar near the local college

Superior is deeper and farther
Superior never gives up her daughters
They spend their lives by its cool, cool waters

She married too young, and that’s a fact
She loves her son, wouldn’t take it back
She still has her looks, she knows ‘cause the boys all tell her so

She drops off Joe at her mother-in-law’s
She likes Presque Isle for taking long walks
And she sits and watches the surf mist in the trees

Superior is deeper and farther
Superior never gives up her daughters
They raise their boys by its cool, cool waters

She walks alone at night on the beach
She wonders if this is all there ever will be
And one day Joe comes of age, and he’s gonna want to leave this place, too

Her husband calls on the telephone
He says, “I ain’t ever coming home.
It’s much too cold up there. It’s warmer here in Milwaukee.”

Joe gets over it pretty fast
The other kids help make him laugh
Besides, the ice is melting soon he’ll be swimming in the lake

Superior is deeper and farther
Superior never gives up her daughters
They break their hearts by its cool, cool waters
Track Name: Profile
I saw your profile out of the corner of my eye
You’re laughing with your friends across the room
It’s been such a long time since I saw you from the side
It’s so hard to appreciate what’s right in front of you

I saw your profile, you’re with your new guy
You didn’t notice me, I was watching you
It’s been such a long time since I saw you genuine
It’s hard to overstate the loss that I’ve been through

Every single moment matters
Every second glance it counts
Every hard lesson learned soon forgotten somehow
Better learn to appreciate it
Soon it’ll all be taken
And before you know it, it’s over
Yeah, before you know it, it’s gone

I learned the hard way, how to lose
I learned the hard way, how to lose you
I learned the hard way, how to lose
I learned the hard way

Every single moment matters,
Every second glance it counts
Every hard lesson learned soon forgotten somehow
Better learn to appreciate it
Soon it’ll all be taken
And before you know it, it’s over
Yeah, before you know it, it’s gone

I saw your profile out of the corner of my eye
You’re laughing with your friends across the room
It’s been such a long time since I saw you from the side
It’s hard to appreciate what’s right in front of you
Track Name: Sad Drive
It’s a sad, sad drive on a sad, dark and lonely night
It’s a sad, sad drive, when only one of us
Still has hope in his eyes

Wait, I’d drive to feel your touch
But hope, that’s just another drug
Trying to kill the pain like aspirin make you feel better

Now distance, it’s a funny thing
‘Cause romance is just a touch away
You can touch me with your hands or with your letters

As soon as you went away, I remembered the things I forgot to say
As soon as you went away, I remembered

It’s only ‘cause I’m lonely I imagined you next to me
It’s only ‘cause I’m lonely I envisioned you I can picture you
And feel your breath on my neck

From Destin into Panama City
I raced on down Route 98
Trying to get to your place by the sunrise
Before the buzz dies in my eyes

We snuck out down to the beach
Where I learned the lessons that you teach
You never taught me the final lesson of how to lose you
‘Til now

As soon as you went away, I remembered the things I forgot to say
As soon as you went away, I remembered

It’s a sad, sad drive on a sad, dark and lonely night
I remember so clearly when you rode with me on the ride
And all the struggles and the laughs
I just refuse to put them all in the past
It’s a sad, sad drive when only one of us
Still has hope in his eyes

Oh, it’s a sad, sad drive
I’m in love with a ghost

We haven’t talked for years
My God, you’re never here
No, she’s not coming home
She’s never coming home

Now, it’s a sad, drive… (repeat)
