Superior 03:57
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

Profile 02:54
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

Sad Drive 04:51
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)
