    9:28 - THE STORY OF SPIDERWEBS
    Inspired by the episode “Our Mrs Reynolds” from the TV show Firefly Talked about it in episode #6 of In the Verse. Mal: Now, think real hard. You've been birddoggin' this township a while now. They wouldn't mind a corpse of you. Now, you can luxuriate in a nice jail cell, but if your hand touches metal, I swear, by my pretty floral bonnet, I will end you. Spiderwebs Lyrics Bad men are bird dogging our town
    Dogging our town, Bird dogging our town
    Bad men are bird dogging our town
    We’ll lay a trap for them.
    We’re gonna spin a spiderweb
    Spiderweb, Spiderweb
    We’re gonna spin a spiderweb
    That’s how we will catch them.
    I’ll wear a soft cotton dress
    A soft cotton dress, soft cotton dress
    I’ll wear a soft cotton dress
    With a pretty floral bonnet on top
    Will shoot them down in the spider web
    Spiderweb, spiderweb
    Will shoot them down in the spider web
    And celebrate our win
    A pretty little girl has lured me in
    Lured me in, lured me in
    A pretty little girl has lured me in
    Declared her love for me
    She caught my heart in a spiderweb
    Spiderweb , Spiderweb
    She caught my heart in a spiderweb
    Now how will this all end
    She’s leading me to the end of the line
    End of the line, end of the line
    She’s leading me to the end of the line
    We'll put things right again
    I’ll break free from her spiderweb
    Spiderweb, spiderweb
    I’ll break free from her spiderweb
    And never kiss a girl again
    Come here little lady, May I meet you
    I meet you, I meet you
    Come here little lady may I meet you
    Guess it begins again
    It’s all a game of spiderwebs
    Spiderwebs, spiderwebs
    It’s all a game of spiderwebs
    And everybody falls in

    12:27 - THE STORY OF NAKED
    Inspired by the episode “Trash” from the TV show Firefly Check out Episode 11 of In the Verse: Song Crafting G C G C Gregory Alan Isakov "Second Chances" from The Weatherman The Coupling Naked Lyrics You're a stunning lady
    Your emotions you hide
    You tear down my defenses
    With a wink of your eye
    * You think it's a game
    That only you can win
    But that is insane, girl
    Cuz it's you...Who's naked
    That I undress your heart
    You choose to downplay
    Try to reclothe your thoughts
    But your feelings you betray
    Bridge:
    You're breaking down now
    Can I hold you when you cry?
    Or will you disarm me?
    'Fore you tell me goodbye
    And leave me naked
    Don’t shut yourself off
    There’s no need to hide
    Wanna know every part of you
    Please let down your guard

    10:29 - THE STORY OF BLINK
    Lyrics
    I love old things. They make me feel sad
    Take me back to the past, And all the happiness I had.
    But when I met you,  I could not close my eyes
    I couldn't even blink, Lest you disappeared into time.
    Asked you out for a drink. While the rain fell down.
    I tried not to think. That you might turn me down.
    You’re like an angel as old as the universe
    You saved me from a lonely life that is so much worse.
    Don't blink. Don't look away.
    Life is too short.
    I won't blink. I won't turn my back.
    Let go of the hurt.    
    I won’t blink.
    Things don't always happen. Like we dream and plan.
    It's confusing at times. That's why I take your hand.
    To grow old with you for as long as time goes by.
    You showed me this moment and you opened up my eyes
