You, oh you have been in my mind Lately you’ve been in my mind In the back and the front of my mind, lately And you, oh you, you done me wrong Back then yeah you done me wrong I forgot how I used to be strong And who asked you back Who said you could Come back to haunt me inside of my head And who asked you back, not me Now you, oh you, you broke my heart Back then yeah you broke my heart Into pieces and splinters and shards But I, oh I have opened my eyes lately I’ve opened my eyes Opened wide to your sweet little lies Oh yeah I’ve opened my eyes And who asked you back Who said you could Come back to haunt me inside of my head And who asked you back, not me Now I, no I, I don’t miss you No more don’t miss you no more When I think of you now I get bored And I, oh I, I don’t need you Oh no, no I don’t need you Don’t need what you did or didn’t do Oh yeah I don’t need you And who asked you back Who said you could Come back to haunt me inside of my head And who asked you back, not me Now you, oh you had better get out Real quick you better get out Of the back and the front of my mind, Real quick Cuz who asked you back Who said you could Come back to haunt me inside of my head And who asked you back, not me Who asked you back Not me

I don't know, don't know about you You've been in my life for a while Was I better without you And it's clear that this ain't going well You gotta be delusional If you can't tell And what has happened to the way we were You're so damn different now and I can't find the cure The way we bicker these days really is a sin It ain't workin' It ain't workin' What has happened to that smile Every time you look at me now I kind of feel like I'm on trial And you've been acting so strange But it's unreasonable for me to think You're gunna change And what has happened to the way we were You're so damn different now and I can't find the cure The way we bicker these days really is a sin It ain't workin' It ain't workin' This won't work itself out It's scientifically proven Beyond the very shadow of a doubt So I'll plead guilty to this crime But you can keep your locks and your keys Cuz I've done my time And what has happened to the way we were You're so damn different now and I can't find the cure The way we bicker these days really is a sin It ain't workin' It ain't workin' And what has happened to the way we were You're so damn different now and I can't find the cure The way we bicker these days really is a sin It aint workin' It aint workin' It ain't workin' It ain't workin'

Time 03:46
Time again I heard you say you were my friend Time again Time again The truth won’t hurt if you pretend Oh but all the good things they must end Time time time Time time time Time again I read the letters that you send Time again Time again Every truth that you contend Oh and all the madness you defend Time time time Time time time Time again Some wounds they never seem to mend Time again Time again With every hand that you extend Oh and all the pennies that you lend Time time time Time time time Time again I heard you say you were my friend Time again Time again The truth won’t hurt if you pretend Oh but all the good things they must end Time time time Time time time Time time time

Snowbird 03:33
Breathe your last breath tonight Burgandy shadows and the light Forts we built in trees next door Books and treasure on the floor Flying birds and spoken words and war Flying birds and spoken words and war Weeds fill your garden Days have gone Flowers and lilies that I’d drawn Silver winter yellow spring Hiding from the songs we’d sing Paper wings and silly things we wore Paper wings and all the things we swore Snowbird Snowbird Breathe your last breath tonight Burgandy shadows and the light She’ll be waiting there for you Like the youth that you once knew Paper wings and silly things she wore Paper wings and all the things you swore Snowbird Snowbird fall Snowbird fall Snowbird fall Snowbird fall

He was a big tall man And a few feet wide He had a big knife by his side She was a pretty little thing Wore a big gold ring And she was walking by the river Clyde Well he came her way in the fading day He said your money or your life But either one I’ll be having my fun with you So don’t go make my use my knife Well she was small, god knew Only five foot two But she stood and held her own He just laughed in her face And at her silk and her lace Said 'honey you're all alone' Then he grabbed her strong And her grabbed her wrong And he dragged her by the river’s edge But she was light and fast And she spend right past And he went tumbling down the river ledge She could see below that he was sinking slow And his screams rang a horrible sound So she stood her height She brushed herself off right And she strolled back into town She strolled right back to town Well if you walk that path By the Clyde and strath And spy the finest girl you’ve ever seen Well that’s the way he tried And the way he died And that’s the Widow of Glasgow Green

Dirty Money 04:23
Take You keep taking from me But if you take all the money The vault will go empty Tell Go on and tell me you tried But if you take all the water The well’s a gunna gunna go dry, dry And I don’t need your dirty money Don’t need your dirty floor And I don’t need your holy steam roller Rolling me out the door Where Where are you gunna go And if you scream through the ceiling Then everybody’s gunna know Where Where are you gunna turn You set fire to the ashes There’s nothing else left to burn, burn And I don’t need your dirty money Don’t need your dirty floor And I don’t need your holy steam roller Rolling me out the door Take take take is that all you do Cuz who’s ever taken from you Take take take and you break break break You’re breaking my heart in two Broke That’s just the way that you live I can’t fix all your problems There’s nothing else left to give Can’t You can’t see what you’ve done And even if you buy all you treasure You still can’t carry none, none And I don’t need your dirty money Don’t need your dirty floor And I don’t need your holy steam roller Rolling me out the door And I don’t need your dirty money Don’t need your dirty floor And I don’t need your holy steam roller Rolling me out the door

Changeling 05:43
Cool night yet, just sunset She left her sleeping baby boy In his cradle by the window She wrapped a shawl around her She locked the door behind her She picked some flowers all in bloom Then ran back home again To see her sleeping baby boy Through the door, cross the floor How is her sleeping baby boy In this cradle by the window She feels a chill about her Unearthly fear surrounds her To see what’s lying in the cradle Staring back at her Where is her sleeping baby boy? Where is her sleeping baby boy? The window lies open The shattered glass lies broken Damn be you fairies That would take her human child And leave your changeling babe behind Cold gray skin, cold within It’s not her sleeping baby boy In this cradle by the window Black eyes dart around her Sharp hands pulling at her The open window sends the fairies Laughter echoing Where is her sleeping baby boy? Where is her sleeping baby boy? The window lies open The shattered glass lies broken Damn be you fairies That would take her human child And leave your changeling babe behind Cool night yet, no sunset No more sleeping baby boy In this cradle by the window She holds the changeling tightly She tries to love it rightly But nothing comforts to the fairy Screaming back at her No more sleeping baby boy No more sleeping baby boy The window lies open The shattered glass lies broken Damn be you fairies That would take her human child And leave your changeling babe behind

about

'Who Asked You Back' is the culmination of 10 years of songwriting in Scotland and California. A little bluesy, a little sassy, and mostly miserable.
