Track Name: Almost There
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
Track Name: Sugar Blues
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
Track Name: Own Little Show
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
Track Name: 28 Days
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
Track Name: Receipt For Love
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
Track Name: I'm Gonna Be A Wheel Someday
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
Track Name: Fallen Down
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....
Track Name: Don't Know If I Dare
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
Track Name: Everywhere I Go
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
Track Name: Be With Me
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
Track Name: Space Between
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
