Second Take 04:05
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

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

Big City Way 04:02
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

More To Give 04:09
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

Make It So 02:45
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

Time Goes On 04:07
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.

Tick Tock 03:37
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

It'd Be Nice 03:32
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

Dreamer 03:57
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

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)

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

Come & See 06:24
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
