Track Name: Rhyme & Reason
Think in a place of harmony, deep in my mind I try.
Just like the time is right, once in a while we fight,
But they can have what they want, but not what I give.

Just like the road we’re standing on, we’ve been on shaky ground from the start.
So what the hell are we waiting for, come on baby, go ahead and break my heart.

Everyone has a reason to their rhyme.
We all need to throw some fuel on the fire.
And watch the flames as they grow,
Higher and higher.

So you say you’ll take the high road, ‘cause I’m always on the low side of the street.
Ain’t it funny all the places we’ve been to, this is the only place we ever meet.

Everyone has a reason to their rhyme.
We all need to throw some fuel on the fire.
And watch the flames are they grow,
Higher and higher,
Higher and higher,
Higher and higher.
Track Name: All I've Got
I’ve got a way to keep you on my mind.
I’ve got a way to let you know I’m fine,
I just breathe, and then you’ll see,
That I’m alright.

I’ve got the time to live a life that’s mine.
I’ve got the time to let you know I’m fine,
Yeah I just breathe, and then you’ll see,
That I’m alright.

‘Cause money comes and love goes,
Sometimes they’re caught, and others they just flow
On and on and away again,
But I still got my life to live to the end, my friend.

I’ve got a song to sing the whole day through,
Yeah I’ve got a song to sing my praises for you.
I just breathe and then you’ll see,
That I’m alright.

‘Cause money comes and love goes,
Sometimes they’re caught, and others they just flow
On and on and away again,
But I still got my life to live to the end, my friend.

I’ve got a heart that’s big and bold and bright.
Yeah I’ve got a heart and a soul that’s gonna be yours tonight.
You’ve got a love and a strong tie that binds,
And I’ve got a heart and I just breathe and I’m alright,
Yeah I just breathe and I’m alright.
Just breathe and we’re alive tonight.
Track Name: The World Is Yours
So you say you wanna go
But I’ve been down that lonesome road ya know
I’ve made tracks, then turned back
And watched it all go.

Don’t you wanna settle down
In a quieter part of town
Tend to the land
With a caring hand
Plant a seed and watch it grow

I don’t wanna waste away
My dreams of tomorrow today.

Everytime I walk alone
And hear my feet on the cobblestone
Nothing but the sound
Of my heart beating loud
And time on my mind

Take a seat, take a seat and stay awhile,
The world is so heavy when you’re just a child.
Don’t wake from your dreams,
Stay asleep until the dawn,
It won’t be long ‘til you see,
The world is yours for the taking.
Track Name: Best I've Ever Had
Under every smile and behind each blink
I took some time so I could stop and think
Why are you so sad
You’re the best I’ve ever had

Kicking dirt from underneath our feet
Walking hand in hand down a lonely street
You still feel bad
You’re the best I’ve ever had

And I don’t know why you feel so bad
I want to spend my life just holding your hand
I don’t know why you feel so sad
Cause you’re the best that I’ve ever had

I don’t know what it is that I’m doing wrong
Have you been falling out of love all along
I just can’t tell
I thought I knew you well

But don’t know why you feel so bad
I want to spend my life just holding your hand
I don’t know why you feel so sad
Cause you’re the best that I’ve ever had

I don’t know why you feel so bad
I want to spend my life just holding your hand
I don’t know why you feel so sad
Cause you’re the best that I’ve ever had
That I’ve ever had
That I’ve ever had
Track Name: 1963
What I’d do to be, alive in ‘63
Oh what a year that’d be.
What I’d do to see, the times of ‘63
Surely almost anything.

I’d sing a song with Dylan on that Newport stage,
Raise my hands in protest saying give peace a chance.
I’d take one last drive, in my Studebaker ride.
Oh what a year that be.

There’s a man I heard speaks a five letter word,
About peace, justice, and equality.
‘Cause when the times are rough, the people get tough
Oh what a fight to be free.

What I’d do to be alive in ‘63
Oh what a year that’d be.
What I’d do to see the times of ’63
Surely almost anything.

So they hire a commission only to raise up suspicions
And still there’s no answers to be found.
But for some there’s religion, stay put like a sitting pigeon
It ain’t my cup of tea, but you can drink it down.

Be true to my own weirdnesses and to yours too,
What I wouldn’t do just to talk to you.
But you had to die, like so many before your time,
And I wanna say that I miss you.

What I’d do to be alive in ’63.
Oh what a year, what a year that’d be.
What I’d do to see the times of ’63.
Surely almost anything.

They’ll propagate, persecute, prophesize and prostitute
And that’s just the men behind the curtain
I’m no martyr for the cause just waging in on the wars
It’s one crazy world that’s for certain.
It’s one crazy world that’s for certain.
Track Name: High & Dry
Well I would be lying if I told the truth
Cause I ain’t got much that’s worth giving to you
I spread myself thin hoping you would too
And there’s nothing left for me to do

You got your reasons and I got this rhyme
But both ain’t worth shit if you don’t have a dime
So I sing one last song and thank the Lord I’m alive
I just thought I’d give it one last try

And now I’d better move on
I ain’t got much to hold on
It seems in the blink of an eye
My life had gone by
And you left me High and dry

Well I’d be kidding you to say I never loved
But all I did was kid myself to think it was enough
So I take one on the chin and I will look above
Cause there’s nothing else that I could of done

And now well I better move on
I ain’t got much to hold on
It seems in the blink of an eye
My life had gone by
And you, you

And now I gotta move on
I ain’t got time to hold on
It seems in the blink of an eye
My life had gone by
And you left me high and dry
Track Name: A Way About You
You go about your business, you do just fine.
I go about my days, I do alright.
So close, but so far away, maybe I’ll ask to borrow a cup of sugar
For you to come my way, come my way.

Down the hall and to the right.
I sit alone in my kitchen waiting for your steps outside.
So close but so far away, maybe I’ll strike up a conversation
For you to come my way, come my way.

I don’t know a thing about you,
But you dress in suits sometimes.
But you got a way about you,
I can’t get you off my mind.

Here I go again, I’ll give another try.
But everytime I see you, I can’t look you in the eye.
So close but so far away, maybe I’ll strike up a conversation
For you to come my way, come my way.
Track Name: Don't Forget Me
Mama, I’ll listen, when I hear you call,
It still comforts me.
To know that you’re near, your voice I can hear,
I know you’re there.

Irene always said, look above for help,
But to you for love.
There’s something inside me that always reminds me
What you’re thinking of,
What you’re thinking of.

You’re picture’s on the wall, you’re picture’s on the wall.
To remind me of it all.
Don’t forget me,
Don’t forget me.

Run for your dreams,
Just don’t you ever forget who you are.
Rest assured my little one,
You’ll never outgrow your mother’s arms.
Deep down you know, while you lie still at night,
You’re not alone.
This doors been left open,
And that light will keep shining ‘til you come home,
‘Til you come home.

You’re picture’s on the wall, you’re picture’s on the wall.
To remind me of it all.
My how you have grown, my how you have grown.
Don’t forget me,
Don’t forget me.

Oh now child, sweet love of mine,
How I’ve missed you.
Track Name: Ain't Got Nothin'
You ain’t got nothing for me to sell my soul.
You ain’t got nothing, yeah to me, you’re as good as gone.
But you can drive yourself crazy trying.
But what you’re selling I ain’t buying.

You ain’t got nothing but you sure is a gamblin’ man.
All the bets are in, and you still play your loosing hand.
You can run around from door to door,
‘Cause I ain’t taking you in no more.

You ain’t got nothing here for me.
Just grey skies as far as I see,
So I will go down that road and I’ll never look on back
Cause it’s one hell of a slippery slope with an empty pocket and a monkey on your back.
Track Name: La Fierté Fausse
You can talk but you don’t say much.
You can pretend that you’re out of touch.
Phony pride is what you got,
Phony pride is all you’ve got.

Can you see up around that bend?
Can you picture it in your head?
What happened once won’t happen again.
At least I swore that’s what he said.

Tu a la fierté fausse.

Amour propre did us in before.
Your sought out grace is nothin’ more.
A loyal friend is a friend of mine,
But you can stand close by if you like.

A time will come when you’re on your own.
Will you run for help or will you stand strong?
You’re weak inside but you don’t know.
You’ll always be weak if you don’t grow.

Tu a la fierté fausse.

Amour propre did us in before.
Your sought out grace is nothin’ more.
A loyal friend is a friend of mine,
But you can stand close by if you like.
Track Name: Home Waits For Me
It’s not easy to walk away,
When every bone in my body wants to stay.
It’s not easy to feel this way,
But I do, I do, I do.

Like a river running through,
There’s not just one but many paths to choose.
Like a river my heart ebbs and flows,
But where I land no one knows.

It’s not easy to walk away,
With the whole world in my way.
It’s not easy to feel this way,
But I do, I do, I do.

Some days I know just who I am,
Some days I’m reaching for a hand.
Some days I’m tangled up inside
And looking for a place to hide away, somedays.
When it all turns to grey, somedays.

It’s not easy to walk away,
With the whole world in my way,
No, it’s not easy to walk away.
When home waits for me.
Track Name: More Than You Know
Days like these, I move slow
Don’t wanna race to learn what I don’t need to know
Nights are warm by the heat of the fire
Thinking on my hopes and my desires

I will smell the scent of the lilac, and hear the song of the swan
I will feel the sting of the snow course through my toes and beyond
I will breathe the life of another in me, and somehow I will know what it is to be, to be, to be, to be.

You are more than you know
You are more than you know
You are more than you know
But we ignore our hearts and its shows
Apathetic apologies for all that we’ll never know

Tired eyes give way to tired minds
Don’t wanna know all you may have left behind
Worn out hearts bleed from you and I
Moving slow it’s only a matter of time

But I will gaze upon the ocean, and feel its pulse undulate
I will dig deep within the earth and question my chosen fate
I will see the light of the sun above, and cast a shadow on world and they will see, they will see, they will see, they will see.
