Track Name: Cry One Day
Cry One Day

Have I told you how it’s been?
That Woman that was killing me, well she’s doing it again
She round around in the daytime, she run around at night
I said the way you treat me girl, it just ain’t right……and your gonna

Cry one day, when you need me girl and I’ve gone away
Your gonna cry one day, when you reach for me in the night and I’ve gone away

I would change you if I could
I would take those hurtful words and Mama I would make them good
I’ll fix the broken window all the holes in the walls
But your will just be lonely when night time falls…..Cause your gonna

Cry one day when you need me girl and I’ve gone away
Your gonna cry one day when you reach for me in the night and I’ve gone

Well you can’t run from love, you can’t hide what you can’t see
You can fool everybody but you’re not fooling me
Cause I’ve spent so many nights wait’n up on you
And you walk in with the sunrise thinking I’m a fool…….But your gonna

Cry one day when you need me girl and I’ve gone away
You’re gonna cry one day when you reach for me in the night and I’ve gone away
Track Name: One Trick Pony
One Trick Pony
I’ve seen your one trick pony, I see a fire escape
I just hope you can find it before it’s too late
With your favorite girl and a dirty spoon
Lost a lot of love in this lonely room
Well your friends all say that but time as passed that they have never seen
With you monkey wrench and you gypsy top
You want to get started but you just can’t stop
It just took me a while to realize you must have bit in the night when I closed my eyes
Like a spider spinning your lies I heard in your voice and I seen it in your eyes
Green eyes glowing on starry night the air was warm and the moon was bright
You kissed her lip and she held you tight you didn’t feel a thing as she reached inside
She said I ain’t never gonna leave never say goodbye I’m tear drop hanging the rest of your life
Fairies and butterflies the edge of a knife I’m whatever it takes to get you through the night
It just took me a while to realize you must have bit in the night when I closed my eyes
Like a spider spinning your lies I heard in your voice and I seen it in your eye
It don’t work no more like a million times before and I’m missing you
It don’t work no more as my head hit the floor and I’m missing you
Well that’s not the whole story I’ve got more to say about being found and getting led astray
Some hands aren’t made for holding
Well I’ve tripped and I’ve sinned yelled at God and I’ve prayed to him, yet here I stand
Could you build me a temple where I don’t have to hide
And leave the crooked things of my past behind
Cuz I’ve walked a million miles and I’ve swam a thousand shores
I’ve spent ten years on the inside and I’m kicking down your door
It just took me a while to realize you must have bit in the night when I closed my eyes
Like a spider spinning your lies I heard in your voice and I seen it in your eye
Track Name: The Thread
The Thread
Here I am how did I get here
Choices I’ve made and all of my mischief
These four walls my own making
But the road that I’ve seen has left me forsaken
The thread follows the Needle the Axe yeah it splits the wood
You can use your hands for evil you can use your hands for good
Cicada sings in the lilac tree
A summer day just like a symphony
Hide in the boathouse like we did
I remember what they told me when I was a kid
The thread follows the Needle the Axe yeah it splits the wood
You can use your hands for evil you can use your hands for good
I came home from a long vacation
Not one familiar face at the station
This is where I’m from but I feel like a stranger
I’ve been gone too long it’s like isolation
The thread follows the Needle the Axe yeah it splits the wood
You can use your hands for evil you can use your hands for good
You can use your hands for good
Track Name: Kansas City
Kansas City
The longer the freeway gets behind me
The better that I feel
Cause I know I am going somewhere
When my hands are on the wheel
And the road is at my heels
I left you back in Kansas City
I don’t even remember why
But the lights when I get to Reno
Will be brighter than the twinkle in your eye
And nothing there reminds me of your smile
One day I know I’ll go home again
Until then I’m just on the road
Cause my life out here is so much simpler
Than the burdens that await me at my door
I’d rather see pines and signs that roll past my window
Track Name: Down The Road
Down The Road
I just called to say I’m coming leave the light on for me
And I wish I was a little further down the road
Minutes in the day seconds on my watch
Time keeps moving faster I just ain’t got time to stop
I just called to say I’m coming leave the light on for me
And I wish I was a little further down the road
Everything I see needs to be fixed
Floated in my life that way just like a sinking ship
I just called to say I’m coming leave the light on for me
And I wish I was a little further down the road
Hand- me-down promise from Mata hari’s
Thought you’d stick around but you left without a kiss
I just called to say I’m coming leave the light on for me
And I wish I was a little further down the road
Track Name: Back To You
Back To You
I Think I’m Dreaming out loud I know I’ll forget about you
Maybe it ain’t so I’m just trying to let you go
So I moved to the ocean to start a life on the sea
No matter how far I sailed I hear you calling me, I hear you yeah calling me
With those Sweet Sweet words and that sweet sweet voice that you used to use
And I’m running round back to you the way I always do
So I walked to the mountain to see how far I could climb
I thought it would help me to see cleared but all I saw was you
Now I’m living in the valley still waters by my side
As I lay down beside them I feel you next to me, I feel you next to me
And you’re loving me yeah you’re holding me the way you used to do
Now I’m running round back to you the that I always do
I tried to make it on the island thought I could stand on my own
But I burned I burned with sorrow cause I only wanted to go home
Maybe I’ll never go home and maybe I’ll always be alone
But the one that keeps me moving on is that I love you like the day is long
I love you like the day is long
And you’re loving me yeah you’re holding me the way you used to do
Now I’m running round back to you the that I always do
Track Name: Never Let You In
Never Let You In

Her eyes Shine like diamonds
And her her hair flow like the wind
No matter what you do she ain’t never gonna let you in.

The way she walks into your live
She’ll make everything feel alright
You love her in the night time …
She gone with the morning light.

Well sometimes you get so lonesome
That you feel like you could die
Well that’s just heartbreak saying hello
Every time she says goodbye
Track Name: Twister
Twister
I landed here a long time ago I watched it rain baby I watched it snow
And the one thing that I see I’m a happy man when you’re with me
Oh but your just like a twister and I’m just like a trailer and the lightning is what I feel from you
Got me spinning dizzy I just wanna get busy getting spun by you
I met you on a Tuesday I kissed you on a Friday and Sunday was the day I knew
I was gonna love you I was gonna love you till the day I’m through
Oh but your just like a twister and I’m just like a trailer and the lightning is what I feel from you
You got me spinning dizzy I just wanna get busy getting spun by you
Your just the sunshine yeah you’re my little gold mine and I’m digging everything about you
I feel just like a rich man when you are holding my hand Babe I love you so
Oh but your just like a twister and I’m just like a trailer and the lightning is what I feel from you
You got me spinning dizzy I just wanna get busy getting spun by you
Track Name: Two Steps To You
Two Steps To You
One time I thought about leaving you
Oh and that would be the worst I could ever do
Cause I love you no matter what you do
I may not know a whole lot about keeping you
Oh but I will the best that I can do
Cause I love you no matter what you do
I may not know a whole lot about saving you
Oh but I will do the best that I can
Cause I love you no matter what you do
Track Name: Look At You Now
Look at You Now
Love goes where it’s sent
Maybe out to California
It drops you in South Dakota
Building ships on dry land and praying for the rain
Look at you now you’re so beautiful
Look at you now you don’t see who you are baby you’re a star
She went looking for something
Gonna find herself
But when you find yourself so far from home
And all you wanna do is call
Look at you now you’re so beautiful
Look at you now you don’t see who you are baby you’re a star
Sometimes it seems that you’re living someone else’s dream
How could you know that ever step you took you’d be further from home
