Aletha My favorite track is the first one, but all together this is a lovely album. I love that it is named after an old car. Maybe that's part of my affection for these tunes - they remind me of my Carina Corona (a 1978 Toyota Corona) who, sadly, now sits retired in the paddock. Favorite track: Wake Up Mama.

Track Name: Wake Up Mama
She comes down from the upstairs
Running fast
Running scared
"Wake up, Mama. Wake up, Pa. There's a ghost up there living in my bed"

"Well I fought her once and I fought her twice
And I lost to her both times in spite of all your sound advice.
Wake up, Mama. Wake up, Pa. There's a ghost up there living in my head."

And she says
Who will take me over this mountain or
Ooo will I go under all alone

Well that child has the wandering kind
Of mind that keeps her busy when she lies away at night
"Well what I saw up there" she said, "Is surely dead.
There's a ghost up there living in my head"

And she says
Who will take me over this mountain or
Ooo will I go under all alone
Track Name: It Ain't Fair
What's left in this
What's left in this heart sweet heart of mine
I got a little less
Willingness to try and make you feel alright

What is it gonna take to fill you up
It ain't me. There ain't anything good enough
If you had the whole damn world in your hands
Still you'd sit there swinging your fists around the air
Sayin', "It ain't fair"
And it ain't fair

What's left in this
What's left in this heart cold heart of yours
You've got a little left
Willingness to try and make it work

But what is it gonna take to fill you up
It ain't me. There ain't anything good enough
If you had the whole damn world in your hands
Still you'd sit there swinging your fists around the air
Sayin', "It ain't fair"
And it ain't fair
Track Name: An Island
I've gotta let it out of my head
Knowing everything comes and goes
Good friends I've loved with my whole heart
I don't even know anymore

A long time ago I built the notion
That nothing must ever end
Now the world that I live in keeps spinning around
And I guess I've made myself an island

People will tell you how everything changes
And nothing is as it seems
Then I guess from the start we were oceans apart
But not there's more than water between

By now
I ought to know
If I hold too tight
I just can't let it go
Track Name: My Bonneville
Faded gold faded gold
Handed down handed down
Handed down
Faded Gold
My Bonneville

Flying high
The things we did
The things we did
Flying High
In My Bonneville

You were always good for me
I never had it better before
Then I had to let you go
Climbing out the passenger door

Windows down
Tribal sounds
Tribal sounds
With the windows down
In My Bonneville

In the dark
The things we did
The things we did
In the dark
In My Bonneville

You were always good for me
I never had it better before
Then I had to let you go
Climbing out the passenger door

The things we did
The things we did
In My Bonneville
Track Name: Wrong Darlin'
Oh Darlin'
You put the right in the wrong, darlin'
Everything up until now has been
Barely worth keeping around and then
You put the right in the wrong

Oh my love
You must have been sent from down below
Cause you make me feel so right
And at the same time so wrong

How do you keep me from running away
I don't know
But I wont
Nobody else can make me feel this way
You're the only one that I want

Oh Darlin'
I know you might be the wrong darlin
But if it were right
It might as well be
Something that I could just barely keep feeling
For anyone other than you
Track Name: Light at the End
The little bit of darkness that you've feared
Has grown since then come again to find you
Stirring up the embers of a pile at your feet
Wondering "How am I to keep this fire burning?"

A little bit of kerosine is all it ever took
But you only had the money for a half-full matchbook
So you sold your heart and home for a bit of the good stuff
Saying "Why should I be the only one without it?"

If there's a light at the end
Don't let the end be far
Nothing stays aflame too long
When the wind hits this hard
You were reaching for the surface
But just kept sinking into the core
If there's a light at the end
Don't let the end be far

Now all your higher-ups are still there lying in their dirt
And what you once swore would kill you now it doesn't even hurt
Now you can't even see what you would have sworn you'd be missing
All the bad dreams have gone now and with them the good dreams

If there's a light at the end
Don't let the end be far
Nothing stays aflame too long
When the wind hits this hard
You were reaching for the surface
But just kept sinking into the core
If there's a light at the end
Don't let the end be far
Track Name: Always My Heart
I haven't seen you
In what feels like years
Though what feels like years may be

You took my letters
And you put them away
Or you ripped them to tiny pieces

I know I may be a little bit crazy
But always my heart is true
No more you love me
No more I love you
But always my heart is true

Your father read books on a young Henry Thoreau
And he gave you a name for him
You've got your willpower
But where did your courage go
Where did your courage go

You never meant to be
Less than a friends to me
And always my heart was true
No more you love me
No more I love you
But always my heart is true
Track Name: In The Water
I'm goin' down
Goin' down to that place
Gon' down by the riverside
Where I see my face in the water

And the tall grass grows
Where the river overflows
Where the rain falls heavy on that place
I see my face in the water

Some days I get lost
Out there out there
Where the river only takes water it's handed

So I'm gonna run
Gonna run down to that place
Where I can find my own face
In the water
Track Name: Come On
You say you want
To come on home
So come on home, come on
In the day, in the night
I'm pressed to the words
To hear me keep saying
Come on

I will only call for you
I will only call for you
So long
So long

And you may never come to me
You may never come to me
Come on, come on

When her arms do tire
And her love holds you limp
And you need something strong
Come on

If you can't pull through
There are things I can do
And then things I won't do
Come on

I will only call for you
I will only call for you
So long
So long

And you may never come to me
You may never come to me
Come on, come on
