Track Name: Second Take
She’s a free trip
On the corner
Wants more but her life will not afford her

Playing young dumb
All the boys come
Thick lips no mistakes they’ll never hold her

She’s howlin’ for more
Oh she’ll settle that score
She's breathin’, breathin’
Second take gonna let out all the demons

She wanna get out on the floor
Blind beats they got her feelin’ so far away from here

Oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh

She's ready
Golden
Beat dropped, coming back and oh she knows when
To take it
Away
Move soft cause the feelings wants to stay
She's howlin’
For more
Oh she’ll settle that score
She's breathin’ breathin’
Second take gonna let out all the demons

She wanna get out on the floor
Blind beats they got her feelin’ so far away from here

Oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh
Track Name: A Certain Speed
I think that something came loose
Maybe another excuse
Not a lot left on my mind but lately I’m soft and I’m headed down

Forgot how to say no
It’s just go go go
Night on the town, and I’m headed down
But I know your feeling like I’m still around

Hey hey hey yeah
Hey hey hey yeah
Hey hey hey yeah
They got me feeling no soul
They got me feeling no soul

I’m at a certain speed
Don’t know what I need
You're moving by so fast
But I know you feel me like I last

I don’t know what I do
I’m feeling like I’m through
As soon as I get in my groove then I’ll know
That you feel like Iam going to take this away

Hey hey hey yeah
Hey hey hey yeah
Hey hey hey yeah
They got me feeling no soul
They got me feeling no soul
Track Name: Big City Way
Hard wind, off of the blue
Can’t stop me, your pushing me through
Sweet conviction, shoulders of might
The night don’t stop when you turn off the light

I wanna play
Big city way
I’m feeling love, come on and play

Street light coming alive
All the doorway music feeling alright
Lookin’ down, vixen in flight
Nothing can stop you when you doing it right

Come and take a look, at the other side
You might like, what you see
Let me lay lay lay lay lay you down
And we’ll see what we could be

I wanna play
big city way
I’m feeling love, come on and play
Track Name: More To Give
People seem to let you down
Break smiles into a frown
Their dreams have gone away
Cold hearts they have no faith

Walk about the beaten path
Feel what fear keeps from a man
Oh it can soothe the soul
One thing they’ll never know

Go about with what you’ve dreamed
Make your life like you have seen
Oh well is that enough
Who did you make feel loved

Maybe I should let it go
Settle down and take it slow
That’s not my life to live
I’ve got much more to give

Ohhhh ohhh ohhh ohhh
Ohhhh ohhh ohhh ohhh

Faces pass me in the night
Shadows keep me far from sight
A world without a care
Wait to come up for air

Bend the wood upon the oak
Let the night hold back your choke
Oh but I lost a friend
Dreamed how he met his end

Maybe it was meant to be
Life can’t teach what death can see
But that’s a different time
Carved out of a different rhyme

Maybe I should let it go
Settle down and take it slow
That’s not m y life to live
I’ve got much more to give

Ohhhh ohhh ohhh ohhh
Ohhhh ohhh ohhh ohhh

People seem to let you down
Break smiles in to a frown
Their dreams have gone away
Cold hearts they have no faith

Walk about the beaten path
Feel what fear keeps from a man
Oh it can soothe the soul
One thing they’ll never know

Go about with what you’ve dreamed
Make your life like you have seen
Oh well is that enough
Who did you make feel loved

Maybe I should let it go
Settle down and take it slow
That’s not my life to live
I’ve got much more to give

Well yeah yeah yeah yeah
Well yeah yeah yeah yeah
Well yeah yeah yeah yeah come on now

Hold me up, Hold me down
I’ll break through with my sound
I’ve got no time to hate
My destiny's too great
I’m not scared, I won’t fold
I’ll dare to be so bold
What is the right in life
I’ll ask him when I die

Well yeah, yeah yeah yeah
Well yeah, yeah yeah yeah
Well yeah, yeah yeah yeah
Track Name: Make It So
Feels like you're falling fast
Can't quite escape the past
There's something inside of you
Getting ready to break on through

If you need it, you'll never let it go
If you need it, why don't you make it so

Make it so

It whispers, then starts to hum
You don't know quite where it's from
It's getting louder and soon enough
The door's open and won't be shut

No more excuses, it's time to break through
Don't overthink it, don't let it fool you
Keep on dreaming like you used to
Start doing what you're suppose to do

If you need it, you'll never let it go
If you need it, why don't you make it so
Track Name: Time Goes On
The mistakes I hold
They don’t take their toll
And I think I know
It’s about that time

To make me feel something new around
My heart breaks just fine
Cause it takes, every time

Yes I want you, need you, will come back to see you
As time goes on
Feel you, know you, will come back to hold you
As time goes on, Ohh yea

Mistakes you hold
They don’t take their toll
And I think I know
It’s about that time

To make you, feel something new around
My heart breaks just fine,
Cause it takes, every time

Yes I want you, Feel you, will come back to see you
As time goes on
I need you, hold you, I don’t know you
As time goes on

I’ll feel out the night
My heart breaks just fine
Take out that rhythm
Then break it on time

Oh yea time time time time
Time goes on

Time, time, time, time
Time goes on
Time, time, time, time
Time goes on

I’ll feel out the night
My heart breaks just fine
Take out the rhythm
Then break it on time

Oh yea time, time, time , time goes on

Time goes on.
Track Name: Tick Tock
You come under the radar, understand
You be my baby maybe I’ll be you man
Step inside, bring it to me
If you be my baby maybe I’ll set you free

You come under the radar, understood
You're not my baby and don’t act like you could
Come tell me meanings
Of what I don’t know
Looking for a take-off but your moving so slow

I go
Too slow
You know
I bet you talk about your feelings like you want them to show

You know what I’m saying, what I do
You get my meaning and my messages too
I told you stop running
There’s nowhere to hide
I don’t hear you breaking baby I’m on the side

You don't understand me, what I do
You can't imagine what you're putting me through
You're undercover, you're indisguise
You've just got me feeling like you're nothing but lies

I go
Too slow
I know
I bet you talk about your feelings like you want them to show

Some one's better than none
Some one's better than none
Some one's better than none
Some on'es better than none.

Tick-tock, flip-flop, I'm having fun
Tick-tock, flip-flop, I'm having fun
Tick-tock, flip-flop, I'm having fun
Now baby stop, you're the one
Track Name: It'd Be Nice
Little man talkin' to me
Little boots cover up your little feet
Talkin' tough, you quiver with lies
Scared of everyone who doesn't need your kind

Who knows how you got where you are
But I know you won't make it too far
It's a shame you came in my world
You think you've got it made, I wouldn't be so sure

It'd be nice
It'd be nice if you just shut the fuck up

It'd be nice
It'd be nice if you just shut the fuck up

You think you got me under control
I see what you took, I know what you stole
Little man in a big ole house
You should know I've got you all figured it out

Lips are flappin', turnin' red
I never listened to a word you said
Silly things coming out
But you don't got a clue what you're talkin' about

It'd be nice
It'd be nice if you just shut the fuck up

It'd be nice
It'd be nice if you just shut the fuck up

It'd be nice
I'm talkin', it'd be real nice
So so nice
Let me tell you
Oh it'd be nice
I'm talkin' real nice
It'd be nice if you just shut the fuck up
Track Name: Dreamer
She's been dreaming
She's doing fine
She don't believe in
Wasted time

She's been saying
Oh she swears
There's so much beauty
Everywhere

She's got me dreaming
And I don't mind
I can see her
The way she shines

She's a dreamer
I don't care
Oh but where she's going
I want her to take me there

She's a dreamer
Lost in life
Can't tune out the
Others' lies

Wants to leave here
Northern bound
Will my love still
Find her sound

Oh she's decided
What she will be
And I'm hoping
It's close to me

She's been sleeping
But she's aware
What they've been saying
They stop and stare

She's been drifting
In the ebb and flow
She's started swimming
Away she goes

She's been looking
But she don't see
She's been staring
Right at me

She's a dreamer
Lost in life
Can't tune out the
Others' lies

Wants to leave here
Northern bound
Will my love still
Find her sound
Track Name: When She's Gone
Maybe we went too fast
Maybe it wouldn't last
Can't see the mess we made
Beneath this lovely charade

Although I'll never know
Why our love wouldn't grow
I'll try to fix want went wrong
Make it up when she's gone

I'll make it up when she's gone

She don't understand me
Her life don't demand me
Look to me, I guess you could see
I'll make it up when she's gone

I never thought this would end
Before we made our amends
I never thought it would fade
Before my hand was played

I'll make it up when she's gone

She don't understand me
Her life don't demand me
Look to me, I guess you could see
I'll make it up when she's gone

I'll make it up when she's gone
I'll make it up when she's gone
I'll make it up when she's gone
I'll make it up when she's gone...

(it's gonna sound like this song)
Track Name: Desperate Times
When I come around
Your simple grace
I just get lost
Caught up in the chase

No I don’t got money
Don’t got a cause
All I got is six strings a ringin’ and a love and want

Desperate times, call for desperate ways
I’m thinking today’s too short for me to get my way
Desperate times, call for desperate ways
I’ll sit and sing us a little sad song about yesterday

You’ve been around me
For too much time
I finally pulled you closer
Intend to make you mine

Now you say your’re leavin’
Headed south
Well I could stop at Nashville but after that
To me your gone

Desperate times, call for desperate ways
I’m thinking today’s too short for me to get my way
Desperate times, call for desperate ways
I’ll sit and sing us a little sad song about yesterday

Under the same bright sun
Those feelings you left behind
They’ll stay forawhile but
Slowly they’ll start to die
We had a real chance for love
But fate wasn’t on our side
You chose what you thought you wanted
And as you thought to much
You left it all behind
My heart can’t win out when you touch is so far away, ohhhhh

Desperate times, call for desperate ways
I’m thinking today’s too short for me to get my way
Desperate times, call for desperate ways
I’ll sit and sing us a little sad song about yesterday
Track Name: Come & See
I know what you say
What your burdens weigh
I've been all around
On top and underground

Come and see what you're gonna be now
Come and see what you're gonna be now
Come and see what you're gonna be to me

Look alive if you want my time
Look alive if you want my time
Look alive if you want my time today

Let me play my role
Let me take control
You won't feel so lost
For a simple cost

Come and see what you're gonna be now
Come and see what you're gonna be now
Come and see what you're gonna be to me

Look alive if you want my time
Look alive if you want my time
Look alive if you want my time today

Well I
I need you
I feel you
So take cover
And discover
You'll be mine
In due time
You know I got you when I open up my fiery eyes

Long ago
Deep below
I taught myself to grow
Don't think you're beating me
I'll never let it go
Look around, hear the sound
We've got some common ground
I'll never let you down
You're gonna come around
