Abilene – Sheryl Crow

Can’t you see I’m holding your flag
The one that you left on the ground
Well is the world too heavy for you
If it makes you feel better, I’ll carry it, too
No one’s gonna stand in your light
Impressions are easy to fight
But until you turn to me and say
You don’t need anyone to carry the weight, I will stay o

[CHORUS:]
Abilene
Bring it on home to me
Abilene

Isn’t it good to be free o
Can’t you see I’m wearing your shirt
The one with the heart on the sleeve
Everyone can see you’ve been hurt
But honey don’t give up on me
When you gonna make up your mind
When you gonna get out of bed
Well everyday you’re gonna find
Broken promises are no worse than words never said

[CHORUS]

Then you want someone to come along and save the day
Well you make it much too hard

[CHORUS]

Crazy Ain’t Original – Sheryl Crow

Crazy ain’t original these days
The world was going half-crazy anyway
Anything you can think of, it’s all been done before
Crazy ain’t original no more

Checking in and out and in and out of rehab
It ain’t quite the shame it used to be
Well you’re dressed to be the star ’cause one bad
Mug shot makes you much more interesting

Crazy ain’t original these days
The world was going half-crazy anyway
Anything you can think of, it’s all been done before
Crazy ain’t original no more

Well those neighbors we all tried to stay away from
Twelve kids were not enough, they had thirteen
And what everybody used to call a freak show
Well now we call reality TV

Crazy ain’t original these days
The world was going half-crazy anyway
Anything you can think of, it’s all been done before
Crazy ain’t original no more

Yea all these bankers down on Wall street riding Harleys
Wicked lawyers breaking all the rules
All those grammers with their cosmetic surgeons
Do their best to look like they’re still in high-school

Crazy ain’t original these days
The world was going half-crazy anyway
Anything you can think of, it’s all been done before
Crazy ain’t original no more

Anything you can think of, it’s all been done before
Crazy ain’t original no more

Crash And Burn – Sheryl Crow

I watched the sun come up on Portland
I waved goodbye to all my friends
I packed my car and headed to LA
I gave away all my loose ends

Somebody said you gotta get away
To wanna go back home again
I left my universe standing there
Holding the hand of my best friend

And it’s laughter that I feel when I think of you
It’s one more dusty rose about to turn
I’ll see you when I reach New Mexico
If I’m in the mood to crash and burn

I wrote a letter that I never mailed
I rehearsed a dialogue in my head
In case you ever wanted to track me down
I’ll take my cell phone to bed

And it’s laughter that I hear when I close my eyes
And it’s one more punchline I forgot to learn
I call you up when my bottle’s dry
I’m on my way to crash and burn

Antigone laid across the road
And let a mack truck leave her there for dead
Just because her lover split the scene
Well love might be great but why lose your head

Well, it’s laughter that comes up when I cry for you
And my heart may break again before it learns
And I might be stupid enough to want to fall again
Cause I’ve gotten use to the crash and burn
I say I’ve gotten use to the crash and burn

Crash and burn
Crash Crash
Crash and burn

Sweet Rosalyn – Sheryl Crow

Slappin’ leather was devised
During a wild streak in her life
She has a cheap apartment
Up on Royal Street
She brought home just enough
To keep her on her feet
She don’t believe in anything
But it you ask her, she’ll say
There’s plenty of things to believe in

[Chorus]
Sweet Rosalyn
Sometimes you gotta give in
Sweet Rosalyn
Sometimes you gotta give in
Sometimes you gotta be loved

She got a number off the bathroom wall
She was looking for a good time
So she made the call
Got a strangely calm voice on the other line
Sneaky little priest trying to reach out to the swine
He said, “Hello my name is Father Tim
Seems to me your zeal for this life
Has been wearing a little thin”

[Chorus]

Well, maybe we all could use a little grace
To know when to run and when to
Stay in one place

[Chorus]
