Track Name: Luckiest Guy
I’m just a little bit afraid of what I’m thinking/you’re so hot what’s your name whatcha’ drinkin’/I’m kind of high not your typical guy/I can read your soul by the look in your eye/it doesn’t matter what’s your sign or what I’m saying/I’m pheromones and I keep on praying/your going to smile and remember my name/because I’m so enamored by the play of your game///I’m not just like the rest but yes I am/except that I’m your only man sometime I sit and wonder why/I’m not the LUCKIEST GUY but this I know/I could never ever find a better girl/no matter how hard I tried and I never would///I like today and I never want tomorrow to ever end with a hint of your sorrow/we might not have met had I not perchance came to this conclusion when hearing your name/I get concerned when its brought to my attention you love me dearly is what you always mention and I love you too like I love every breath its all that matters when there’s not much else left///
Track Name: Living With My Girlfriend
I’m living with my GIRLFRIEND/we say we get along/she says were happy together/she thinks she’s never wrong/I don’t get your obsession with Twilight/you don’t like me when I drink straight Jack/I’ll just sit here and pluck my guitar/I’m so turned on by the paint on your back/we love getting stoned together/I hate going to the mall/she thinks she’s the only/we laugh, we kiss, we smash, we smoke, we eat, we drink, we hardly fight at all/but I know that your dad wants to shoot me/and I’m so lazy I can stay employed/you’re so hot I don’t mind going down/the street holding hands looking so overjoyed/I don’t really think I know you anymore/that’s what you say every time you want a fight/with prepackaged dialogue designed for make up sex/I can’t really blame you for your emotional wrecks/I don’t mind that you finish my sentence/check my Facebook or look in my phone/now I think I’m starting to love you/now our house feels just like a home
Track Name: Farther Behind
I got a brand a brand new obsession/got no bad intention/head spinning faster every day/never know what I’m losing/its oh so confusing/but it all keeps falling away/I don’t know why I cant get a break/when’s my time Lord I feel so forsaken/I don’t know why I try to follow the line///I’m falling FARTHER BEHIND///win some lose more, eye candy eye sore/I saw my baby with another man/it never surprises used to all her lies/popping the top on my 12th beer can
Track Name: Tomorrow
We laid in bed all day today/I’ve not been clean in six years straight/I don’t think she can beat this and neither can I/Just got a final notice on my door/it says the lights won’t work anymore/then neither will I/I can’t keep a 9 to 5/because I’d rather stay messed up then stay alive///But TOMORROW the sun may shine/lord tear away these demons of mine/my soul will lift up but my sorrows will stay/right there in the bed where I laid///when did my life become so hard/my hungry child crying in the yard/living in a 2 bedroom deadend/3 kids 2 dogs and not a penny to spend///and if I’m breathing tomorrow/and I realize what this is all for/and if I can change what makes me so strange/then it won’t course through my veins anymore///
Track Name: Turn Around
I was lost with out you/in this turbulent sea/but you’re the stone I’m holding that’s trying to drown me/how do you hold something that burns and tears your heart in two/you thought I turned my back but I was turning around to you///TURN AROUND/you don’t need a reason why/turnaround/you don’t want to see me cry/I am yours and you are mine and that is all I found/I’m so scared it’s over/so I’m begging you to turnaround/// sometimes life takes you down a road where all the lights have passed you by/one wrong turn and two flat tires/how will I drive on through the night/a love just like a black hole/where all my soul has been pulled inside/and I know I’m going crazy getting washed up by the tide///
Track Name: Spinning Walls
You got a lot of nerve/I got a lot of swerving to do/if I want to miss you/we’ll take the long way home/my mind needs time to roam you’ll say/I hope you go the wrong way/you got diamonds in your eyes/you’re the devil in disguise///I’m in love with your memory/I’m letting go/won’t you please let go of me///we’re stuck in limbo here/you smile and shed a tear/it falls through the SPINNING WALLS/I’ve got nowhere to go/polite backward flow like this/please ass funky my kiss///you got a lot of nerve/I got a lot of swerving to do/if I want to hit you
Track Name: Never Leave You Again
We’ve been together such a longtime/sometimes all we see is red/if I let you go will you come back to me/because I don’t want no one else in your bed/this time its different/it doesn’t feel the same/this time oh I promise///I’ll NEVER LEAVE YOU AGAIN/// never leave you again/looks like my hindsight is just as bad/I can’t see that clear either way/I never study my own history/so I’m damned to repeat it everyday
Track Name: By Your Side
thinking of you/I wish I had a voice to go with your smile/but all I have is a vague reminder/of what I want/please look in my eyes/I want you to see my intention baby/I fell like a child that enamored and caught up in your glow/to just touch your lips would fulfill every one of my dreams/I’ve never needed something so badly/so I gave up/I gave up on rational as soon as I saw you/I’m chasing my tail around I’m upside down and my ego’s torn in two/but baby what I wouldn’t do for you/If you only tore down your wall/and gave me your hand not your cold shoulder/and just let me call/call you my baby my darling my girl/because there’s no place I’d rather be/than be BY YOUR SIDE tonight///can’t see what’s ahead/I’m always in the dark when it comes to emotions/I fell like I’m trapped and my lungs collapsed/like I can’t breath/it’s hard to believe/I need you to restore my faith in it all/I’ve taken a fall so many times/I need your love
Track Name: I've Been
I’VE BEEN the kind of guy who would open doors for you when I feel obliged not to hide the side that I feel you took for granted when you had it but now its gone reminiscing always missing a time when/I let you drag my soul around/now I got to head for higher ground/and yes I must confess this is a mess but I’m smarter now/and even though the tables turned you never saw this somehow///I always had you on my mind/until I met your real side/yes I admit that I was blind/but I woke you choked up I broke your heart and turned the tide///I’ve been never better wrote a letter to tell you/thanks dear my new woman keeps me warm at night and she drinks beer/head is twitching always itching on how I let you/stick around like a dog in the pound
Track Name: The Grass Is Greener
She’s long and she’s tall/She doesn’t even realize that he’s here at all/He’s short when he drinks/sitting there at the end of the bar and he starts to think/Starts to dream/dreaming up another one/think of a line and threw it up to the sun///The GRASS IS GREENER same as before/with a bottle and a joint/looking up at the floor/time is wasted/time stands still/the grass is greener up on the hill/if you don’t go now you never will/you never will///He’s rich, and he’s weak/Can’t even look you in the eyes when he starts to speak/
old money soon its gone/we all know that song and we sang along/sing along/baby if you know this one/I forgot the line/but I prayed to the sun///
Track Name: Part Of Me
PART OF ME wants to leave/part of me want to stay/part of me never trusts/that’s the part that walks away/is this going to be the last time we ever share/part of my mind keeps racing around and part of my mind isn’t there/give me my sunshine give me my drugs/push the rest away/sweep it under her rug/am I the one who could never stay quiet/I only have two brain cells left and there both starting a riot/pull me close and I’ll push you away/you don’t understand a single word I say/I’m the answer don’t ask why/I don’t care if this is all I lie/I COULD PUT IT IN A LETTER/YOU COULD READ IT SO MUCH BETTER
