"Love endures, it clings away. When asked to leave, it begs to stay. Like the perfect song, at imperfect times: It's the way the chords struck with the rhymes." - Carbon Leaf, "let your troubles roll by"
"Scene after scene passes by my life. the window's a wound. The road is a knife. The irony, asks me, 'where have you been?' I don't know, I don't know, because I don't know where to begin." - Carbon Leaf, "one prarie outpost"
"Trapped in the snare with too much dreaming to bear; Fearful and frantic, hopeless and a romantic. Inspired but tired, I run this wide-open course like the sagging spirit of an older horse." - Carbon Leaf, "raise the roof"
