There's a place that I would go when I was younger Down 1171 to the countryside And I would drive my father's car 'cause it was faster than mine Teenage Fanclub turned up loud Out there the sky went on forever Looked like Texas wants to look Just some fields, fences and cattle No suburban sprawl bullshit I would pull to shoulder Kill the engine and look at the stars Take me back to the place out past the Copper Canyon Where we went late at night Take me back to the place the world seemed at its widest If that even still exists And I was young, stupid and happy then Hadn't felt my heart break inside my chest Hadn't doubted everything I ever thought about myself Hadn't grown up just yet There's an airport off the road there Let's drive on the runway tonight I'm singing Take me back to the place out past the Copper Canyon Where we went late at night Take me back to the place the world seemed at its widest If that even still exists I would pull to shoulder Kill the engine and look at the stars Take me back to the place out past the Copper Canyon Where we went late at night Take me back to the place the world seemed at its widest If that even still exists If that even still exists If that even still exists Oh, if that even still exists

We've been up for hours going over the same old course Chased our tails so long forgot what we were looking for Let me lay my head down for awhile, just a detour Something's broken but what it is, I'm never sure I want to understand you, want to know where you're coming from Show me all the love you keep hid from everyone She's gonna wear me down to nothing, straight down to the bone I'll lay awake for hours just to hate what we've become So let her down easy Let her feel nothing but love tonight She's gonna take it easy There's nothing more to do to make this right Been looking at your pictures, forgetting all that went wrong It's easy to forgive or forget when you're not around someone I want to reach out, want to tell her all I've been thinking of It just hurts worse, it's just no good for anyone If this is really it, if we're gonna make it stick for good this time I'll never forget what it was like to have you in my life Let her down easy Let her feel nothing but love tonight We've got to take it easy There's nothing more to do to make this right Let her down easy Let her feel nothing but love tonight We've got to take it easy There's nothing more to do to make this right

Let me off your ferris wheel now if you want to Think we're both a little tired of whirling around Say you're getting much more than me from the ride here Feel nervous with my feet this high off the ground There's a couple in the car opposite us Struck dumb by love and living it up I remember seeing that kid when we were younger Never seemed to have the smallest bit of luck Wish I could be that fool for the first time He kept a smile that looked naive at best Always wondered if he'd find what he wanted He never bothered doubting it Sun is setting and the air it gets a little colder Everyone here leans in close Couples stream to their cars headed for home now Ferris wheel grows dark and comes to a halt Wish I could be them fools for the first time With a smile that looks naive at best Always wonder if I find what I'm wanting If I can keep from doubting it Let me off your ferris wheel now if you want to Let me off your ferris wheel now if you want Let me off your ferris wheel now if you want to Let me off your ferris wheel now if you want Let me off your ferris wheel now if you want to Let me off your ferris wheel now if you want Let me off your ferris wheel now if you want to Let me off your ferris wheel now if you want

I'm tumbling, baby, three sheets to the wind Headed down Sycamore, glassy eyes and a Cheshire grin You call me a love drunk when I wander home Wake up real early wearing all of your clothes I want to get drunk on you tonight I want to feel helpless like a child I want to get drunk on you Stumble into the darkness 'til you make me see stars Having my heart broke, oh, it all went so wrong Found me a person that could right everything that I done Oh, I'm gonna love somebody, they gonna love me right back Gonna have my heart on a string and I'm never gonna have a chance I want to get drunk on you tonight I want to feel helpless like a child I want to get drunk on you Stumble into the darkness 'til you make me see stars I want to get drunk on you tonight I want to feel helpless like a child I want to get drunk on you Stumble into the darkness Yeah, I want to get drunk on you tonight Yeah, I want to feel helpless like a child I want to get drunk on you Stumble into the darkness 'til you make me see stars

Oh, the night it makes fools of us It gets its voice into our heads and drains The part of our conscience that directs us straight ahead It puts drinks into our throats and evil thoughts into our minds Cheap perfume on our clothes, things we regret from tonight Oh, the soil it ain't done with us It wraps its little arms around my feet Grows roots until I'm stuck here in this town where I can't breathe I can't live like this, I can only sway with the breeze So cut me down and chop me into something quite different Don't know why I feel this way tonight Don't know why I feel this way tonight Don't know why I feel this way tonight Don't know why I feel this way tonight Oh, the night it ain't done with us It sinks its fangs into our necks and drains The blood from our bodies, paints the moon a gory red Looks just like the sun up in the sky, throwing light a million miles And dangling from a branch about to drop Is this why I feel this way tonight? Is this why I feel this way tonight? Is this why I feel this way tonight? Is this why I feel this way tonight? Is it why I feel this way tonight? Is it why I feel this way tonight? Is it why I feel this way tonight?

Spain is stealing my woman for awhile Just left and my mind is running wild Tried to call her but she's with Spain Spain is stealing my woman for awhile Late night dancing and a lot of good wine Think I'm losing her to Spain Spain is stealing my woman for awhile Haven't heard from her for hours tonight Why would she pick me over Spain? Spain is stealing my woman for awhile Crazy theories running through my mind Think I've lost her to Spain Wish that I could take this jealous old heart Trade it in for the one I had before Think I've lost her to Spain

You gave up on love that we shared Gave up our love 'cause you were scared Said you need something you can't explain Left only questions and a world's worth of pain Why'd you hurt me? Why'd you hurt me? Don't know what to do with the days Time keeps ignoring that everything has changed Now your voice sounds so empty on the phone Voice I remember belongs to a ghost Why'd you hurt me? Why'd you hurt me? Why'd you hurt me? Why'd you hurt me? Back in my arms again Who cares if I need to pretend? Oh and something is broken inside Parts are now dark where there used to be light Why'd you hurt me? Why'd you hurt me? Why'd you hurt me? Why'd you hurt me?

It's written on your face Our love has turned to hate Friends think you're doing fine But I see that dark look in your eye Well, where does love go to die? Where does love go when it dies? My heart is caked in rust Knowing I abused your trust Wondering if I'll ever find that again Or if I even deserve that Where does love go to die? Where does love go when it dies? Where does love go to die? Where does love go when it dies? Heat's off and the pipes are froze Head to a place I know Belly up and pound it down Gonna put these bad thoughts in the ground Well, why did I waste my time? Why did I waste my life? Ain't like you're gonna be my friend So what's the point in going over again? Where does love go to die? Where does love go when it dies? Where does love go to die? Where does love go when it dies? Where does love go to die? Where does love go when it dies? Why'd you hurt me? Why'd you hurt me?

Do I treat you like you deserve to be treated even after all this time? Do you still feel nervous when you hear my voice on the other end of the line? Does it feel brand new, am I thinking of you as often as you'd like? Or is the spell now broken, are you tired of going over the same things every night? Darling, ooh, what's hiding in you? In those beautiful eyes Those beautiful eyes I'm clinging to you like the last thing that's true, only thing real in my life Do I come off pathetic like a lovesick dog wondering what's on your mind? You can push me away a thousand times in a day, when I'm just trying to make you smile Would my spirit break, would my heart give way, if I disappear in those eyes? Darling, ooh, all I wanted was you And those beautiful eyes Those beautiful eyes Those beautiful eyes, yeah yeah Yeah, your beautiful eyes, yeah yeah Darling, ooh, what's hiding in you The last thing that's true All I wanted was you And those beautiful eyes Those beautiful eyes Yeah, your beautiful eyes Those beautiful eyes

She's like a bird that flew too far from home Has no place to go when it's snowing outside She's like a boat on the open sea Floating aimlessly, hoping she someday sees the sand One day she'll cry out, a stranger by now As she pushes past me, disappears into the crowd She'll be someone I will never need, just a memory She washes over me She's like a book I read so long ago Story's filled with holes, don't know how the ending goes One day she'll cry out, a stranger by now As she pushes past me, disappears into the crowd She's just someone I will never need, just a memory She washes over me Quiet now, she's crying now, she needs somebody but I won't be there to help She's just someone I may never need, just a memory She washes over me She washes over me

Touching down on frozen runway Passengers push to the front Everyone rushing to someone Back home there's no one to wake up The house it seems so quiet I talk just to fill the place up Doesn't matter how it all started Always ends with me hurting someone Dreaming about the ocean And her lying next to me Dreaming about the future Whatever it was supposed to be I go running in the dead of winter Try to eat well and keep myself strong Keep my mind clear of the darkness I can only stave it off for so long Dreaming about the ocean And her lying next to me Dreaming about the future Whatever it was supposed to be Dreaming about the ocean Our hearts floating out to sea Dreaming about the future What's left of you and me

about

"Blood Red Moon" is the third full-length album released by Glenn Yoder under his own name and the second alongside his band, The Western States. It was recorded primarily live in a large room with exposed beams in the producer's mother's house in Lamoine, Maine, near Bar Harbor. The gracious host cooked up a storm of delicious food. There was a wild turkey on the premises. It was a nice experience. All told, the band had an amazing time making this album and hopefully that joy of playing together comes through your speakers.
