The Wheelers Decatur, Alabama

More than just a band, The Wheelers are a musical family that embodies a "do-it-yourself" attitude and the free spirit of grassroots music. Writing, recording, and producing all of their own music in a basement (endearingly referred to as "The Bossmont") in Decatur, AL, they have come to represent a truly homegrown sound that is greater than the sum of its parts. ... more

Track Name: Telephone Blues
I sit so close to the telephone, when it rings that way but I know that you’re coming home.
Jar full of corn and I got nobody on hold.
The whiskey burns a hole in my shoe, there’s a twenty dollar noggin when the dogs get hold of you.
Jar full of corn and I got nobody on hold.

I couldn’t come inside.
I can’t remember the last time this kind of blood was on my hands.
I’m not coming home.
I know I ought to be ashamed.

I get so hot when I see the bones and I wonder if we’ll ever get a minute to be alone. Charlie don’t hear me in the bed I made of loam.
Ashes on a fire and what’s become of the man i had to call and the man i had to run from.
Charlie don’t hear me in the bed I made of loam.

I can’t come inside.
I can’t remember the last time this kind of blood was on my hands.
I’m not coming home.
I know I ought to be ashamed.

I sit so close to the telephone, when it rings that way I don’t know if you’re coming home.
Jar full of corn and I got nobody on hold.
If Charlie calls, I’m not at home,
but Charlie ain’t calling ‘cause he’s got no telephone. Jar full of corn and I got nobody on hold.

I can’t come inside.
I can’t remember the last time this kind of blood was on my hands.
Track Name: Porcelain
I can smell their cigarettes again,
I’ve been afraid before and can’t remember when.
I wish sometimes that I could make you laugh the way You do when you’re out of breath,
And I wish that I could tell the truth the way you do; It’ll be the death of me.

But I’ll keep burning candles when the power comes Back on, a month of Sundays just went by.
That’s a month of Mondays gone
That I’ve been staring at the phone,
Telling people lies like I never find the time,
And it’s a blessing rain can baptize liars.

If she gives like porcelain these days, you can call my Name you know that it won’t change.
And there ain’t no shame in keeping me awake.
It’s the morning getting closer,
Not the moon that I can’t take.

My escape just plots itself, no matter what I do.
I pay the price of being happy
Against the cost of loving you,
And I don't hide my apathy
When I need a talkin' to.
It's like I've got a thousand horses
And all I need is a mule.

If she gives like porcelain these days, you can call my Name you know that it won’t change.
And there ain’t no shame in keeping me awake.
It’s the morning getting closer,
Not the moon that I can’t take.
Track Name: Breeze
I’ve got a feeling that can’t be explained,
One of these days it’s gonna pour out my veins.
This love of mine, it’s so kind,
Just gotta find the one to spend the time.

See, I’ve got the chalk to write this down, my word carries across this ground.
You can make the plans, but in the end,
They’re just gonna get carried in the wind.

They say, “The breeze will blow our troubles away.” And we’ll pray.
And hope that we all get through the day.

There’s more to this life than you can tell.
All we’re trying to do is stay out of Hell.
There’s a time and place, where we can talk.
All I want to do is take this and walk.

See, I don’t know where I’m headed,
But all I want to do is take this and spread it.
You can make the plans, but in the end,
They’re just gonna get carried in the wind.

They say, “The breeze will blow our troubles away.” And we’ll pray.
And hope that we all get through the day.

So the walk begins with you, my friends,
Live our lives and don’t pretend.
I’ve got a lot of miles left in these shoes,
So don’t sit around and moan these blues.

There comes a fork in the road,
Which way do you want to go?
You can make the plans, but in the end,
They’re just gonna get carried in the wind.

They say, “The breeze will blow our troubles away.” And we’ll pray.
And hope that we all get through the day.

Hey… I’m laying with the dogs…
Hey… I’m laying with the dogs...
Track Name: Another Day (Top's Song)
Dropped our time together
Like a flame when it goes out.
Emptiness filled the room,
Forever lost in a cloud.

Beginning with hope,
It was ended in tears.
These affectionate words,
They consumed our infinite years.

My cover was blown
When my true colors began to show.
Forget what i said before ,
These are words you already know.
You go your own way,
And I’ll damn sure go mine.
I hope we know what we’re doing
When we leave each other behind.

All that was needed
Was a smile and a verse.
Words overlap laughter
And those feelings began to hurt.
Our paths cross another,
Yet we looked for a place to stay.
I’ll see you again my love,
I’ll see you again another day.

I packed my bags in a time
When you were lost and so confused.
I didn’t care about you anymore,
Because my mind was so abused.

And I won’t say that I hate you,
And I’m gonna smile on the outside.
Because my happiness is worth way more
Than all those shitty little tears you cried.

All that was needed was a smile and a verse.
Words overlap laughter
And those feelings began to hurt.
Our paths cross another,
Yet we looked for a place to stay.
I’ll see you again my love,
I’ll see you again another day.

All that was needed was a smile and a verse.
Words overlap laughter
And those feelings began to hurt.
Our paths cross another,
Yet we looked for a place to stay.
I’ll see you again my love,
I’ll see you again another day.
