Almost There 03:21
Verse Bikini's on but it ain’t quite summer Too late for lunch too early for dinner Sittin on your porch but nobody’s home Wearing shoes that I’ve outgrown Chorus I’m almost there Almost there Almost where I wanna be It’s almost here Almost here It’s oh so near But out of reach Verse Running in circles running in squares Running into people running into chairs They ask me questions, tell me what’s new I’m just waiting for my dreams to come true How bout you? Chorus Bridge Hopes and aspirations call for inspiration perspiration just add frustration and by my calculation you'll be Chorus

Sugar Blues 03:25
Sugar blues in my bedroom Sugar blues in my dreams Sugar blues in my coffee Sugar blues inside of me Sweet sweet buttermilk & cream You put the sweet in me Now you’re gone like some old sweet song Sung by bitter me Bitterness surrounds me Bitterness in spades Bitter waves they drown me Bitter mornings bitter days Sweet sweet buttermilk & cream You took the sweet from me Now you’re gone like some old sweet song Sung by bitter me

Take off that hat Come sit in the back It’s a beautiful night The stars are like spotlights It’s our own little show tonight Just you and me keeping company The price of admission is just a little kissin’ It’s our own little show tonight Our audience is the grass and the fence and the roses we planted I sure won’t take for granted Our own little show tonight Just you and me keeping company No better way To end this long day Than our own little show tonight

28 Days 04:22
Verse I’ve got my mind set on 28 days 28 days till I can start again Spring’s exploding out of the gray But I got my mind set on 28 days Chorus But time, it moves so slow I’m trying to stay afloat In this sea of minutes and seconds and hours 28 days Verse I got my heart set on 28 days 28 days feels like forever Swallowed up by this bloody haze That’s why I’m waiting on these 28 days Chorus Verse I surrender to these 28 days Time take me with you To that day when I can watch the children I raise Just gotta get through these 28 days Chorus
5.
Your receipt for love don’t throw away You may have to return it someday Tell them that it didn’t fit Even though you tried on it Made it hard to walk Sure was tighter than you thought Multi-angled mirrors they don’t lie You saw it from each and every side Though you knew it’d never last It’s the kind of thing that wears out fast Shouldda seen it from where you stood It was good from far but far from good Your receipt for love don’t throw away Your receipt for love don’t throw away Never felt the same as that first day When you tried it on Sure that you weren’t wrong
6.
I’m gonna be a wheel someday I’m gonna be somebody I’m gonna be a real gone cat Then I won’t want you Everything’s gonna go my way I won’t need nobody I’m gonna be a real gone cat Then I won’t want you You will cry You will cry You will wonder why I don’t look your way When I’m rollin by

Fallen Down 03:53
Verse Can’t think of much to say About the holidays ‘Chestnuts Roasting’ on the radio My heart’s heavy as the wet snow Chorus Stolen dreams and blood stained ground This time we’ve really fallen down Verse Heartlessness in the heartland I just don’t understand You do everything they tell you to And heartache sticks to you like glue Chorus Stolen dreams and blood stained ground This time we’ve really fallen down Fallen down Bridge We’ve got the wrong script to the wrong play There must be some mistake I thought kindness was rewarded Chorus Stolen dreams and blood stained ground This time we’ve really fallen down Fallen down....

Verse I don’t know much about love I've only had a taste I’m so weary from the search And tired from the chase Chorus Must be something you’re not telling me Cause your words have been so kind I think you’re gonna leave me alone I keep feeling like I’m home Verse I locked myself away in this safe and lonely place How could you have freed me With one soft embrace Chorus Tell me when will you betray Cause it seems like you’d never stray I think you’re gonna leave me alone I keep feeling like I’m home Bridge Don’t know if I dare Believe you that you care I keep pushing you away Cause all I want is for you to stay Verse How can I be so afraid Of the things I most desire Melting down what comes between Two hearts set afire Chorus I’m getting ready to bleed You keep giving me all that I need I think you’re gonna leave me alone Cause I keep feeling like I’m home Bridge
9.
Verse Look look what you’ve done you made a hostage of my heart Now I can’t stand to be apart From from now on I have no choice you know I’m gonna take you with me everywhere I go Chorus 1 Gonna keep you in my mouth like a secret Keep you in a locket on a chain Put you in my wallet next to George and Abe and Ben We’ll never have to be apart again Verse In grown grown up love I’m supposed to be so nonchalant I’m like like a teenager when we’re apart There ain’t no place too high or low I’m gonna take you with me everywhere i go Chorus 2 Gonna rub you in my skin like lotion And let the smell seep into my brain Gonna mix you up into a magic potion We’ll never have to be apart again Verse I’m so so relieved that you’ll never leave my side as I wander through my day Everywhere I go, I will bring you along Hell I even put you in this song Chorus 1

Be With Me 03:48
Baby what’s that look in your eyes Are you tryin to disguise What’s going on You feel like the world might swallow you whole Got all that weight on your soul Chorus Come now, be with me, stay with me till morning Or till tomorrow afternoon Or till the moon turns cold and blue The way I feel when I’m not with you Verse Talk to me, or don’t say a word I know you’re not much for talkin’ Lemme kiss away all of the demons inside Calm your fears where they hide Chorus Bridge I’ve been hurting too All I want is to hold on to you Chorus
11.
Verse Our smoking guns lay guilty and hot to touch In a sea of wounded words All tired and used up The air surrounds me, heavy My head is full of fumes Have to pull a little harder To breathe in the gloom Chorus The dust is settled on this battleground aside our weary dreams And all that's left is you and me And all the space between Verse So close were we when this began like flowers in a bouquet But now you stand right in front of me And you're so far away Tonight we'll lie in bed again Your back facing mine Side by side yet separated By this fault line Chorus Bridge We've gone down in flames Up in smoke Circled round and round How oh how can our love be found? Found Verse Let's tear down this wall we've built slowly year by year It's made from bricks of pride and mortar of tears This river of empty sorrow This space, this vast divide Stone by stone I'll step toward you On the other side Chorus
