Track Name: Are We Alright?
Bought you flowers today
They died on the way
Hope you don’t mind when I say
I’m not comin’ home to stay

I’ll be leaving on a plane
I got nothin’ left to gain
Flying high across the plains
I’m tired of playin’ these games

Oh the sun on the ocean
Was bright as the night
All these times I been hopin’
That we’ll be alright

Will you take me by the hand?
Come and join me in a better land
Where the sun always shines
Happy ever after time

It doesn’t have to be this way
We’ll bring our hearts to pray
We’ll find a better way
To bring out the brighter days

Oh the sun on the ocean
Was bright as the night
All these times I been hopin’
That we’ll be alright (x2)

That we’ll be alright
Are we alright?
Track Name: Waiting
Waiting,
Watchin’
The sun go down

You said
You’d call
But you never did

Waiting,
Watchin’
The time go by

I’m tired
Of waitin’
And playin’ these games

Well, I’ve been tryin’
To forget about you
Well, I‘ve been dyin’
Here without you
Baby, come back to me

I can’t take
No more of your lyin’
I can’t break
This love is never dyin’
Baby, come back to me

Waiting,
Watchin’
The sun go down

You said
You’d call
You finally did

Nice to see you
It’s been a long time
Come sit next to me
And talk for a while
Oh, I’ve missed you so

You say you want me
You’re sorry you left
I can’t believe you, I tried my best
To forget, everything you’ve done

You say you’ve changed
But I’ve moved on
Better places, I can ramble on
Oh, your day has come and gone
Track Name: Better Off Dead
I had my eye on you
Since the first time we met
You stole my heart
And you stole my soul

It took a while
‘Til I seen your smile
You stole my heart
And you stole my love

You broke my heart in two
Now I don’t know what to do
Wastin’ away without you
Forgive me for what I’m about to do

One day you’re here,
The next you’re gone
You stole my heart
And you stole my soul

The day you ran away,
I didn’t know what to say
You stole my heart
And you stole my love

You broke my heart in two
Now I don’t know what to do
The gun is loaded and I’m all alone
Won’t need nobody to take me home

You said you’d never leave
Now I’m left here on my knees
You stole my heart
And you stole my soul

I thought you were the one for me
I thought you’d never leave
You stole my heart
And you stole my love

I pulled the trigger and shot me dead
Now there’s a bullet in my head
I’m getting closer to finding you, babe
Without you, I’m better off dead
I’m better off dead
I’m better off dead
I’m better off dead
Track Name: Just Can't Stay
Packin’ up,
Headin’ on my way

I really love you, darlin’
But I just can’t stay

Moving on,
Yeah, you’ve done me no wrong

I really love you, darlin’
But I just can’t stay (x2)

This long, lonesome highway
Keeps calling me away

Can’t stay too long, in just one place
Can’t stay too long, I just might break
Been way too long, since I seen your face
Sing a whiskey song, to stay awake

Time moves on
Before you know I‘m gone

I really love you, darlin’
But I just can’t stay

You gotta carry on
You don’t live too long

I really love you, darlin’
But I just can’t stay (x2)

This long, lonesome highway
Keeps calling me away

Can’t stay too long, in just one place
Can’t stay too long, I just might break
Been way too long, since I seen your face
Sing a whiskey song, to stay awake
To stay awake

(x2)

Drive along
Can’t forget your face

I really love you, darlin’
Butt I just can’t stay

Yeah, the wind blows strong
You call my name

I really love you, darlin’
But I just can’t stay (x2)

This long, lonesome highway
Keeps calling me away

Can’t stay too long, in just one place
Can’t stay too long, I just might break
Been way too long, since I seen your face
Sing a whiskey song, to stay awake

Yeah, to stay awake
Yeah, to stay awake
Can’t forget your face
Track Name: Drown
I can here you, callin’ my name
I can’t here you, I’m going insane
All kinds of problems goin’ on in my brain
I can’t hold on to this train

Runnin’ circles, round and round
I can’t stop this, I’m goin’ down
Lights are fadin’ in this town
I gotta get out before I drown
Before I drown

All these demons crawling ‘round in my head
Feels like I’m trapped, here in my bed
Don’t know how much longer I can tread
It won’t be long before I am dead

Runnin’ circles, round and round
I can’t stop this, I’m goin’ down
Lights are fadin’ in this town
I gotta get out before I drown
Before I drown

This is how my story went, and now it ends
I must say goodbye, no time to make amends
There’s nothing you could have done, my friend
I can’t hold on, this is the end

Runnin’ circles, round and round
I can’t stop this, I’m goin’ down
Lights are fadin’ in this town
I gotta get out, before I drown
I’m gonna drown
I’m gonna drown
Track Name: Lover
Headin’ out on the road with my love
40 miles west to go
Goin’ to do what we love
We’re gonna show you why

We’re gonna play you our love song
So you can get close and dance with the one you love
I would cherish this moment from now on
So you can share this for the rest of your life

Come on, lover, let’s pack the car
It’s time for us to head to the bar
Set up for the night ahead
So we can show people our love tonight

We’re gonna play you our love song
So you can get close and dance with the one you love
I would cherish this moment from now on
So you can share this for the rest of your life

We played our hearts out tonight
They wanted nothin’ more than ‘Cotton-Eye Joe’
We sang ‘Trees’ and they came around
’Together' put them all into tears

We’re gonna play you our love song
So you can get close and dance with the one you love
I would cherish this moment from now on
So you can share this for the rest of your life
Track Name: Who You Are
I’ve been searchin’ for your kind, all of my life
Won’t you come join me for a glass of wine tonight?
Talk about what’s happenin’ in your life
Yes, won’t you give me your time?

Your pretty hair, your dancin’ shoes
Makes you who you are
You move around like a clown
But that’s just who you are
Yeah, well that’s just who you are

We walked in and sat down at the nearest table
A waitress came over, I ordered a double
What would you like, dear?
A glass of red wine, a glass of red wine

Your pretty hair, your dancin’ shoes
Makes you who you are
You move around like a clown
But that’s just who you are (x2)

Yeah, well that’s just who you are

Oh, waiter man, can you please turn up the radio?
This is my favourite song that I used to kvnow
She jumped right out of her chair
Her hair blowin’ in the wind, her hair blowin‘ in the wind

Your pretty hair, your dancin’ shoes
Makes you who you are
You move around like a clown
But that’s just who you are (x2)

Yeah, well that’s just who you are
Yeah, well that’s just who you are
Yeah, well that’s just who you are
Track Name: 'Til the End
Happily, we live our lives
Won’t you join me and be my wife?
The stars are shining bright
Let’s go out tonight

Whoa oh oh whoa oh whoa (x2)

It’s goin’ good, now wouldn’t you say?
We spend most of each and every day
Together holding hands
Let’s go out and dance

Whoa oh oh whoa oh whoa (x2)

Come on and hold my hand
Down on one knee, let me be your man
I’ll be by your side, ‘til the end
Holdin’ on, to your hand

Whoa oh oh whoa oh whoa (x4)

Happily, we live our lives
Won’t you join me and be my wife?
The stars are shining bright
Let’s go out tonight

Whoa oh oh whoa oh whoa (x4)
Track Name: In My Arms
Woke up, at the break of dawn
Fire’s gone out but I’m a stayin’ warm
With my baby, beside me
In my arms

Water’s froze, but we get by
Don’t need much to live this life
With my baby, beside me
In my arms

Let’s pack the van, it’s time go
Spend a few days on the road
Might think we’re crazy, but that’s okay
It’s our life and we like it that way

We played toight from 9-1
People danced all night long
With my baby, beside me
In my arms

All packed up after the show
Lookin’ for some place to go
With my baby beside me
In my arms

Let’s pack the van, it’s time go
Spend a few days on the road
Might think we’re crazy, but that’s okay
It’s our life and we like it that way

Party’s over, it’s time to go
Guess it’s time to head on home
Should start a fire, it’s so damn cold
Dawn is breaking, it’s early morn
Track Name: Alone
Well, the days seem so long
With you gone
When are you comin’ home?
I hate to be alone

Since you left,
I’ve been on my knees
Beggin’ baby, please
Come back to me

I dream of the days
Before you went away
We used to play
Every day

So I’m waitin’ here
For you dear
I can’t take this
I need you near

Sittin’ home
All alone
Scared and shameless
To be on my own

I dream of the days
Before you went away
We used to play
Every day
