Track Name: It's Fine By Me
"It's Fine By Me"
written & performed by mark mitten
(c) 2016

her eyes are glowing in the dashboard lights
she wonders where you gonna drive her to
a one-light town and nothin' new
but the whole damn world feels down & out
and you feel it too

her eyes are weeping in the downtown lights
her skin is warm but she's as cold as ice
"all I know is that I just can't stay"
and the light turns red, light a cigarette
and she wants one too

ooo, it's fine by me
ooo, it's fine by me

her eyes are shining in the summer lights
her shoulders tan and her dress was white
come out wrong every word I say
and she run her hand through her hair
and then she walks away

ooo, it's fine by me
ooo, it's fine by me
Track Name: Shot To Hell
"Shot To Hell"

making way for the desert wind
when summer's done the creek runs dry
polestar like a pinwheel
diamonds spin across the sky

never gonna see this place again
never gonna see this place again
all shot to hell just like jesse james
never gonna see this place again

weathered boards frame a holding pen
baling twine just to keep them in
bootheels on a hardwood floor
grab my hat and I'm out the door

never gonna see this place again
never gonna see this place again
all shot to hell just like jesse james
never gonna see this place again
Track Name: 6000 Miles
"6000 Miles"
written & performed by mark mitten
(C) 2016

And you wonder why, in this pale blue sky
there's 6000 miles of fence between me & you
and you wonder why, would I gamble the truth
when there's nothing to lose--why even have to choose?

And there's 6000 miles of fence between me & you (x2)

Give me two whiskey sours, I can pass the hours
there's a dead shine tonight
the ancients smile through their aspen eyes
for miles & miles I call from these adobe walls
and my sleeves catch fire from the muzzle blast
and my empty glass

CHORUS

Midnight light, desert & dune
a bottle of shooting stars
midnight light, desert & dune
a bottle of shooting stars
Track Name: Back To The Hills
"Back to the Hills"
written & performed by mark mitten
(c) 2016

There's a road that leads to Telluride
gravel pits and tramway lines
amethyst and golden wine
is she yours or is she mine

Back to the hills I mine, yeah
back to the hills I mine
I wander, wonder, lose my mind
back to the hills I mine

Trace the curves along her spine
meadows unto timberline
turquoise eyes reflect the light
is she real or in my mind

Back to the hills I mine, yeah
back to the hills I mine
I wander, wonder, lose my mind
back to the hills I mine

mmm...mmmm...

Water trickles, tallow burns
break my back and never learn
world is hollow like an urn
close your eyes, ain't your concern...(no, mmm)

Back to the hills I mine, yeah
back to the hills I mine
I wander, wonder, lose my mind
back to the hills...

Back to the hills I mine
I mine
mmm...mmmm...
