Track Name: Think Of You
Ragged waves roll in and crash along the banks of Lake Ontario
The autumn leaves are shaking in the wind against the white October glow
Soon the snow will fall across this land
And June is just a vision we once had
I see the sunshine, just like headlights in the pines

Oh I, this time of year I always think of you
I think of you
Oh I, this time of year I always think of you
I think of you
I'll always think of you

Lit up like the dashboard light I'm burning bright with you
And if this Cadillac don't make it there tonight, we'll be alright I know it's true
Through the snow, past the silos and the barns
Back to the place where I was born
We pull onto the drive, see the headlights in the pines

Oh I, this time of year I always think of you
I think of you
Oh I, this time of year I always think of you
I think of you
I'll always think of you

Wheels roll up along the dirt road, through the window
I see the moon shining down into field, across the tree line
Where we'd pretend we were soldiers and we'd never
Leave one of our own behind

Oh I, this time of year I always think of you
I think of you
Oh I, this time of year I always think of you
I think of you
I'll always think of you
Track Name: The Brave
Hey kid, I hear you howl
I know your name, I knew it well
Like the back of my hand
Or the books on my shelf
I know the way you walk
Your beautiful hell

On and on

There is fire in your heart
And you know no matter how hard they rain
It ain't ever going out
It ain't ever going out
‘Cause I've seen some things
And now this kid is growing up
And he's calling in the brave

He was singing on and on

Young hearts, they were born to break
And I know that the day that my father left
Was the day it all changed
But I'm rolling up my sleeves
Yeah I'm trying to stay tough
I've been calling in the brave
Just like he did the day
That he came back for us

When he was singing on and on
He was singing on and on
Track Name: Trains
Darlin’ you know what I like?
I like them trains best in the morning light
When the trees begin to glow from black to gold
I like that old steel singing
Bring me home again

And darlin’ you know what I love?
I love that fire in your eyes
The long forgotten skies
‘Cause baby we were born to run

And just like them trains
Steel in the wind
Chasing the sun through the cold mountain
The long, long skies
Carry me home
Alongside the river where the black water runs
And just like them trains

And darlin’ you know what I want?
I want you to keep that radio light on
And wait for morning to come, if it never comes
I'll keep holding on, and you keep holding on
We’ll keep holding on

And just like them trains
Steel in the wind
Chasing the sun through the cold mountain
The long, long skies
Carry me home
Alongside the river where the black water runs
And just like them trains

And just like them trains
Steel in the wind
Down through the pines, where the crows fly in
And just like them trains
Just like them trains
Track Name: Oh California
So take me back to, so take me back to find
To find where I followed you, oh I followed you on down
Oh I followed you
And then I followed the sound

And then I followed the sound through the night
I followed the sound of the crashing tide
I followed it down where the ocean lies to wait for you

So take me back to, so take me back to find
To find where I promised you, oh I promised that I'd keep
Oh I will keep
Your secret safe with me

Then I followed the sound through the night
Followed the sound of the crashing tide
Followed it down where the ocean lies to wait for you
I was searching for you

Oh California take my hand

Because then I followed the sound through the night
I followed the sound of the crashing tide
I followed it down where the ocean lies to wait for you
Track Name: I'll Come Back
I told you baby, don’t you wait around for me
‘Cause I've been waitin 'round here way too long
And now the waitin's done I'm gonna be free

I told you baby, I'm gonna get lost this time
‘Cause if you can't get lost, you can't come back around
Just to say you made it out alive

But I'll come back for you someday
You haven't seen the last of this face
I will come back when I can say
“I can hold my own”
I can hold my own

I told you baby, babe you’ve got to hold on tight
‘Cause if you’re not hangin’ on, then you’re hangin’ all wrong
And you know that that ain't right

I told you baby, blue just ain't your style
‘Cause you’re about as blue as Detroit city
The ghost of motown's in your smile

But I'll come back for you someday
You haven't seen the last of this face
I will come back when I can say
“I can hold my own”
I can hold my own

But I'll come back for you someday
You haven't seen the last of this face
I will come back when I can say
“I can hold my own”

But, I'll come back for you someday
You haven't seen the last of this face
I will come back
When I can hold my own
Track Name: Freightliner
Where no one can find me
There below the trees
With the mountains high above me
Standing in the breeze
And there ain’t no one to tell me, tell me how to live
My sweet brother
Do you still hear the thunder way out on the plain?
I'm so scared that I've lost my way

Oh Freightliner, how your wheels roll
Time is money and the night is cold
When the night is cold as the coming rain
Freightliner
Freightliner

I'm a long haul rider
Oh I ride the road
Carrying my angel everywhere I go
Sometimes we go down where the blackbirds
They gather in the tall grass and sing
My sweet brother
Tell me, do you remember those things
When the old road is calling your name?

Oh Freightliner, how your wheels roll
Time is money and the night is cold
When the night is cold as the coming rain
Freightliner
Freightliner
