Track Name: I Once Was A Man
I used to be an older man
Oh god when did i get so young
I had a tremor in both hands
and ashes in my lungs

Is that my daughter speaking
I’d like to talk to my son
They tell me i’ve been dreaming
My life has just begun

But i once was a man
I once was a father
And i could cook you dinner like no other

In our house in the country
With a pocket full of dollars
And you couldn’t have been a better mother

I was older then
Back when i was your man

I caught myself looking for
Those old boots beside my door
That you gave me
In a place so far away

They were all worn in
The sole was getting thin
And full of holes
But i loved them anyway

Where are you now my darling
Do the children know i’m gone
Can you hear my singing
Or did i only know you in a song

But I once was a man
I once was a father
And i could cook you dinner like no other

In our house in the country
With a pocket full of dollars
And you couldn’t have been a better mother

I was older then
Back when i was your man

(interlude)

I once was a man
I once was a father
And i could cook you dinner like no other

In our house in the country
With a pocket full of dollars
And you couldn’t have been a better mother

I was older then
Back when i was your man
Track Name: Paper Child
Darling try your hardest
And you'll find where my heart is
On the wind rides all the while
Your paper child
Waiting for a sign
Your paper child

Folded in half
Hidden somewhere in your pocket
The face of a man
Cut in the form of a heart shaped locket

Ohh
What’s he mean to you
Whatcha gonna do
When your heart crumbles like sand
One grain left in the palm of your hand

So draw me as i am to you
Yesterday’s tears will turn to
This morning dew

Darling try your hardest
We’ll see who falls the farthest
On the wind rides all the while
Your paper child
Waiting for a sign
Your paper child

So draw me as i am to you
Yesterday’s tears will turn to
This morning dew
