Track Name: Promise Land
I wish I didn’t know
Where you really go
(I) pretend you left a note
Lipstick and perfume makes it glow

You said it was the first time
Let it be the last
I know nothing is forever
Just didn’t think it’d end so fast
And I thought maybe West Virginia
Could be our promised land
Cross the Ohio into Canaan
But nothing ever goes to plan

Now I’m waiting by the phone
Whisky burning on my tongue
One more drink and you’ll be gone
I guess this means we’re moving on

Moving on until the next time
Always living for the past
Maybe everything’s forever
We the live the roles that we’ve been cast
But we thought maybe West Virginia
Would be the promised land
Cross the Ohio into Canaan
But nothing ever goes to plan

The promise was broken
On the day it was made
By the glimmer of hope that
We might really change
Thought maybe a fresh start
Would let us be remade
Then we got to the mountains
And it was all the same

Just the same as it was last time
Always begging for a king
Tell me it would make a difference
And I’d give you a ring
And then maybe West Virginia
Would be the promised land
Cross the Ohio into Canaan
Pretend to change as if we can
Track Name: My Mind's Made Up
I’m heading down south, ‘cause it’s way too cold up here
Headed down south, I can’t take another year
Oh, but you told me
I needed somebody
Who knew how to hold me
Somebody who knows me
But now I’m headed down south, ‘cause it’s way too cold up here

My mind’s made up, you can’t turn me back no how
I’ve packed up the truck, and I’m ready to go right now
Oh, but you told me
I needed somebody
Who knew how to hold me
Somebody who knows me
But my mind’s made up, you can’t turn me back no how

Don’t you give me that look
I ain’t got no time
To be wavering and playing at changing my mind
I’ve got my mind made up

Well I guess one last drink can’t hurt before I go
I’d say I take it black, but I know you already know
Oh and you told me
I needed somebody
Who knew how to hold me
Somebody who knows me
I guess one last drink can’t hurt before I go

Just don’t give me that look
I ain’t got no time
To be wavering and playing at changing my mind
‘Cause it’s that wicked little look
The corners of your eyes
That make me soft, make me weak, so I don’t know what’s right
but I got my mind made up

I got my mind made up
I got my mind made up

I guess I’ll hang around, but I’ll probably go next year
Having a real hard time recalling why I wanted outta here
Oh ‘cause you told me
I needed somebody
Who knew how to hold me
Somebody who knows me
I guess I’ll hang around, but I’ll probably go next year.
