Track Name: Only You
I would like to say to you
I’ll do anything that you want me to
Sail across the seven old seas
And give you my heart on my bended knee

Feeling love
It’s such a new found love
I’m not afraid to tell the world I love
Only you

I asked the world why am I here?
And drinking it in it becomes so clear
While the people been asking from the dawn of time
I know that I am yours and you are mine

And here I right
That I feel alright
The eyes that see me through the darkest nights
Belong to you
Only you
Track Name: Open
There is no one here who ever listens
There are none around who know my name
I would like before I die to make them all see the light
And if I go before then that’s a shame
If I die before then that’s a shame

I have so much here that I can give you
I have plenty more in my reserve
Turn around look at me there
This could be yours but you don’t care
I’m thinking this is more than you deserve

Hear me now

I’m never gonna cry
But how could you be so cruel and blind
to write me off and with no shame
Open your eyes
Open your eyes

Open

I wonder If the day will ever find you
When you are all out of words to say
Simple things will puzzle you and you’ll begin to follow through
Long at last you will be on your way
Finally you will be on your way

I feel it now
I see it now
Hear me now

I’m never gonna cry
But how could you be so cruel and blind
to write me off and with no shame
Open your eyes
Open your eyes
Eyes see what they will see
But if you open up your heart to me
I promise you we’re both the same
Open your eyes
Open your eyes

Open
Track Name: I'll Take the Fall
Body wracked and torn
My hands are aching and they’re full of thorns
But I don’t think about it
Today’s a sunny day
And I like you

I suppose it’s no surprise
That you know what I think behind my eyes
You’re toying with me
Not time to pretend
If you like me

I’ve been trying to clear this view for all my life
Now I waste an afternoon inside your mind

Now if I go out on a limb I chose
to get a better view of you
I’ll take the fall if I should fall
Oh and if you knew exactly what I want to do
I think that even you’d come to
But it’s not my call
Come on take the fall

Playing in the dirt
Pulling weeds until my back it hurts
I rest awhile and wonder where you were
When you noticed me
I’ve been thinking ‘bout the time
when all I wanted was a girl to call mine
With leaves still falling oh I think of you and smile
‘Cause I like you

Now if I go out on this limb I chose
to get a better view of you
I’ll take the fall if I should fall
Oh and if you knew exactly what I want to do
I think that even you’d come to
But it’s not my call
Come on take the fall

Come on take the fall with me
If I should fall I’ll take the fall
Track Name: Up in My Room
Animal!
Dirty Animal!
Even I cannot believe this
It started with an innocent kiss

Mission Control -
System overload
Where this man has never been before
It’s greater than just wanting more it’s

Up in my room
The afternoon
I lay me down with this beautiful nightmare
Up in my room
I write this tune
So I won’t forget but her body won’t let me yet

Baltimore -
He shoots, he scores!
I sing it loud along the highway
I took my time but did it my way
You painted whores
Out on 24th
Will have to wait ‘til I am dead now
Now that I have gotten the lead out

Up in my room
The afternoon
I lay me down with this beautiful nightmare
Up in my room
I write this tune
So I won’t forget but her body won’t let me yet
Track Name: Why Don't You Come Down
I think I know what danger means
It’s when you play my cards and haunt my dreams
Though I wasn’t born here yesterday
You talk to me like I’ve got nothing to say

Hey! Why don’t you come down
You’ve got nothing else to prove to me
I’m hip to the sound
Say, what good is a town that will chew you up to spit you out
all over the ground

I know you think you own the night
And I am lucky to be in your sight
But that stuff don’t mean so much to me
I feel so lost in all these crowded streets

Hey! Why don’t you come down
You’ve got nothing else to prove to me
I’m hip to the sound
Say, what good is a town that will chew you up to spit you up
all over the ground

Honest
You want it
And nothing I can say will stop you now
Vomit comet
If it’s all the same to you what goes up comes down

I think I know what danger means
In all these hipster bars and dirty schemes
And I didn’t land here yesterday
But I know when something is about to fade away

Hey! Why don’t you come down
You’ve got nothing else to prove to me
I’m hip to the sound
Say, what good is a town that will chew you up to spit you up
all over the ground
Track Name: Known the Difference
Taking a train up to the Highland
Now I’m alone and have the time
Taking a hit and feeling whole again
And watching the world pass me by

I lie awake but I’m dreaming about my home
And it’s more, so much more than I can take
But it’s all that I’ve ever known

Knowing me like I’ve known you
This is hardly the only thing that I can do
But it chose me like the bottle chose you
And I might have known the difference
If you wanted me to

“I want to grow up to be like my father”
I remember saying when I was young
But now I don’t think I’ll even bother
to look at the man he has become

Teach me and tell me that it wasn’t at all my fault
‘Cause I hear kicking, screaming, and a child who’s in the dark

Well knowing me like I’ve known you
You’d say it hurt me as much as it hurt you
And now truly
You know I wouldn’t choose you
And you might have known the difference
If I wanted you to

Knowing me like I’ve known you
This is hardly the only thing that I can do
But it chose me like the bottle chose you
And I might have known the difference
If you wanted me to
Track Name: The Good China
Singing the songs that we know
Though we’ve still got a long way to go
So don’t try to tell me that I want it only
Though I want it more

I took you far from your home
‘Cause you said you wanted to roam
And you’ve been a good girl not used to the big world
But that’s where I go

I’m putting my sticker at South of the Border
To prove I was there one day when I’m older
When I’m going grey and my mind’s getting rusty
The kids will all hate me and you won’t love me no more
By then what’s a heart for?

Now you want to get it tattooed
And I say you’ve got nothing to lose
There’s no getting younger
And I’ve tried to warn you it’s just something I do
We’ve got a Summer to burn
And I’ve got your body to learn
So set out the good china and I’ll stand beside ya
‘Til you tell it’s my turn

So you buy the 40’s and I’ll buy the liquor
I’ll get you a boxed wine if it gets you there quicker
But tell Jacksonville city I think she is pretty
Though I found another now that my supper’s been set
On the good china I’ve met
Track Name: Aimee
I’m not an island
I never thought I could be
And no man was ever made of stone
So now I’m calling in my darkest hour
For you to shine a light on and point me home

So Aimee
Won’t you come and save me?
Yeah my baby like you always do
And so Aimee
No matter how it shakes me
Just say you’re with me and I’ll pull through

Should you ever wonder
If the stars I’m lying under
Are not the same that you see too
Know when your night is falling
I’ll be with you forever
Yes I’ll be by your side
Until your morning sun shines through

And then Aimee
Won’t you come and save me?
Yeah my baby like you always do
And so Aimee
No matter how it shakes me
Just say you’re with me and I’ll pull through

Yeah I will pull through
Track Name: Hard Now the Boat You Row
Well I raise my hands in my self-defeat
See the tide’s coming in and has washed my feet
I was holding out for you to set me free

When the mighty Quinn lost a baby boy
You could feel the wind and it brought no joy
He was more a man than I could ever be
He was more a man than I could ever be

Hard now the boat you row
Like ten feet of falling snow
Walk those miles but never let them go

From all along the cell-phone towers
To the western coast at an earlier hour
The sun set first upon his breaking heart

And I heard it when he said hello
Said we were there for him and he let me go
The silence spoke so strong I fell apart
One thing’s end’s another’s time to start

Hard now the boat you row
Like ten feet of falling snow
Walk those miles but never let them go

Hard now the boat you row
And no one will ever know
How you feel trapped and made to lose control.
Track Name: From a Friend to a Friend
Anyone knows that the time we are spending
trapped in a cage and revolving or running the room
It is cruel

So just for today I would like to break open
every window and door to my heart I once knew
and share it with you

It will start in the morning when you are awaken
by letting the coffee get cold and we’ll make love ‘til noon
And we do

Go hitting the town to see everyone rushing
Or watching the boys of the Summer
Whatever we choose
It will be cool

‘Cause nobody likes to be left all alone
And wherever I am and with you I am home
But you already knew and I want you to know
it again and again
From a friend to a friend

We’ve wasted a day and to show we’ve got nothing
But while they are wasting away we’ll be coming home soon
We’ll be home soon

Everyone knows that the time we are spending
trapped in a cage and revolving or running the room
It is cruel

Still nobody likes to be left all alone
And wherever I am and with you I am home
But you already knew I just want you to know
it again and again
From a friend to a friend
Again and again
From a friend to a friend
