Track Name: Hatcher Creek
This is where I can do what I want
This, this is where, this is where nobody cares
This is - my log, I sit on top
There's moss underneath, you can look if you want

This is where I got grown up
And, this is where, this is where no one found out
This, this is where I ran off
It’s where I skipped school, it’s where everything’s cool

I bet you wish you were me
‘Cause I’ve got everything a kid needs
And nobody to tell me
What - what’s what

My dad keeps us up at night
And he kicks us hard when we try to hide
And my brother cries and I hold him close
And I hold him tight I say it’s alright, baby.

This is where I grew up
When he fell through the ice and I saved his life
And I wrapped him up in a braided rug
And I begged him, please don’t you tell no one

Our dad would kill me if
He knew I let this happen
I know how much he loved him

I would’a run would’a run away
But I couldn’t leave you
And I had more reason, I guess, to stay
Than I would own up to
So I don’t blame you

I go down to the creek when it’s hot
Catchin’ crawdads till they all get caught
Just sit in the shade till the school bell rings
And the kids get loose and they all come runnin’

I remember when Matty swiped
The tire from the car lot and tied it right
And we hung it down from the sycamore tree
And we swung it all night over Hatcher Creek

So don’t you go home
You don’t know what you’d be missing
I’m never gonna kiss you
Track Name: When We Were Good
I laid in the yard and
To be sleeping
You knew better, but
You didn’t care
I watched the wind touch your hair

When I was good
Back when I could
See from where you stood
When I was good

Your dark room
I let you, I meant to
Think it through
How, there’s always something missing
How, you didn’t hear
When I told you I was so scared

When I was good
Back when I could
Be misunderstood
When I was good

You were moving
I came after
You went first,
But I was faster

When I was good
It never felt like it should
Promised I would
Who taught us how to be good
When we were good
When we were good
Were we so good
To us, back when we were good?
