Track Name: No Guarantee
It's not the way that I feel inside now
it's just the way that you feel towards me
just one night, maybe,
that's all we need

you hurt me when you said life was too short
you're moving on and I feel so empty
your sympathy
I want you to give to me

You know it feels like steels gone through me
this pain over you girl
I always thought you're the one I'd marry
but that just isn't the cure
just goes to show that in life
there's no guarantee

I remember watching you watch the sun rise
and making love as the sun would fall
that day is dead
and I'm not ready at all

I want to lay my head on your chest
just listening to the beating of your heart

You know this feeling it burns right through me
this pain over you girl
I always thought you're the one I'd marry
but that just isn't the cure
just goes to show that in life
there's no guarantee
Track Name: Real Fast Car
My girl last night told me I'm boring
just opened her hole and out it stank
I tried to tell her my moment of glory
is only a few years away

she said I'm heading down a road
a road to nowhere is this road
somebody else said that to me
(many years ago it happened to be)
so then I said "I disagree"
because I know my speciality (well what is it?)

I've got a real fast car girl - it goes all night long
just like a real fast car girl - it stops for nothing at all

My baby left me two weeks later (you're not worth it)
I guess she wasn't satisfied (no, way)
so now I'm roaming lonely
while my manhood sleeps and cries

Bar hopping around I see a gal
she's got my name but she don't know
I'm gonna show her what to do
with my love in two....
I bust my moves and let her know (sup baby, you come here often?)
she slaps me hard and heads for the door
all I said was....

I've got a real fast car girl - it goes all night long
just like a real fast car girl - it stops for nothing at all

you gotta know that it's hard now baby, being me
since I'm sitting in a room alone, with only memories, bitterly
and I'm feeling low now girl cause I know that your gone
but it won't keep me down cause I know what's in my garage

I've got a real fast car girl - it goes all night long
just like a real fast car girl - it stops for nothing at all
Track Name: Sunshiny Place
I can't speak cause I never spoke
say what's real and I start to choke
save my pride as I tell a joke
have another beer as I smell the smoke
watch them laugh as I cry inside
dare to be bold, dare to be wise

I won't sink cause I never sank
a heart made of stone's leaving me all alone
how do I call out, when do they turn around?
need some understanding before I'm lost in the crowd

I want to go to a sunshiny place
I have to know all my thoughts are in place
I need to show no one stands in my place
for a lot to learn, I've got a lot to face

Keep a sharp tongue with an open heart
I don't wanna worry if I'm dumb or smart
reaping what I sow, sowing what I reap
falling out of love means I got off cheap

I want to go to a sunshiny place
I have to know all my thoughts are in place
I need to show, no one stands in my place
for a lot to learn, I've got a lot to face

I want to go to a sunshiny place
Track Name: Gone Away
When the sun comes up I'm gonna go away
(gone away, gone away, gone away, gonna...)
and these same sad feelings aren't gonna stay
(gone away, gone away, gone away, gonna...)
and in my heart my soul just wants to wake up
(gone away, gone away, gone away, gonna...)
cause what's gone is lost I've gotta give it up, now

I said, "and don't you go blaming my fears & anxiety, No
and don't you go playing that card of psychology"
my love aint in love with me, she took it away
and that's all there is to say

I guess I'm gonna let down my guard today
(gone away, gone away, gone away, gonna...)
what once was mine is now gone away
(gone away, gone away, gone away, gonna...)
I wish she told me before she wanted to break up
(gone away, gone away, gone away, gonna...)
I'm looking forward to the other side of this particular rut now

I said, "and don't you go blaming my fears & anxiety, no
and don't you go playing that card of psychology"
my love aint in love with me, she took it away
and that's all there is to say

why, wasn't she there for me (when she said she'd always be there)
I was holding on (to something not real)
her control was strong (for one that can't feel)
why wasn't she there for me (when she said she'd always be there)
I was holding on (to something not real)
her control was strong (for one that can't feel)

And don't you go blaming my fears & anxiety
and don't you go playing that card of psychology
my love aint in love with me, she took it away
and that's all there is to say
Track Name: The Love
Break out
I gotta look ahead
because the love we had is dead

Busted up - feeling down, I can see that
was here now she's gone (was here now she's gone)
broken up, look ahead, thought it was alive
but now I know it's dead (now I know it's dead)

The Love that was destroyed
re-lives in a world I'm dreaming
she was here, but now, she's gone

give me all the love that I never had
give me what I need
I feel all the pain and it makes me mad
it's a dirty disease

late at night when I close my eyes I see her face and mine
yeah it makes me sad
I hold her tight I never open my eyes, don't wanna lose her this time
and it makes me mad

gimme all the pride, I can feel that
she's taken what I need (she's taken what I need)
I see all the love that I never had
why did she hide it from me (why did)

The love that was destroyed
re-live in a world I'm dreaming
she was here, but now, she's gone

gimme all the love that I never had
gimme what I need
I feel all the pain and it makes me mad
it's a dirty, yeah it's a dirty disease

gimme all the love, the love
gimme all the love, the love
gimme all the love, the love
gimme all the love, the love
Track Name: I'll Be Fine
There's something in my heart
something about this room
I can't pretend I don't care how
something is happening

I don't know what it is
but I, Know I'll... be fine

Feelings unfairly change
just when I was enjoying things
sinking back to the bottom
doesn't change a thing

I don't know what it is
but I, Know I'll... be fine

I'll Stand and look at my shadow
it still resembles me
I'll stand and look in the mirror
confused with who I see

I don't know what it is
and I don't know what I did
but I know I'll, Be Fine

yes I, know I'll... be fine
Track Name: The Sweetest Sound
I can't hang around to see
the ones that we've become
no longer willing to believe
that the good in everyones soul can set them free
with agendas running wild, no peace of mind
while one eyes on the prize the other's already blind

I got so sick of it all - I had to get away
so I went to a place where that negative vibe wouldn't stay
I found myself some shade under a tree
then I closed my eyes and let the wind take me away

It was the sweetest sound I ever did hear
I wish you heard that sound, you'd know that I'm being sincere
It was the sweetest sound I ever did hear
compared to all that noise it was music to my ears

Everywhere I turn someone's got something to say
never are they to blame or see things a different way
eventually I just try not to care
to join in on that pointless scene never seems to pay

when my guard is down and I'm feeling ok
someone always wants to lead my thoughts astray
turn me inside out, bring my white to grey
I just tune them out and I'm on my way

to the sweetest sound I ever did hear
I want to hear that sound, it clears up all my doubt & fear
It was the sweetest sound I ever did hear
compared to all that noise it was music to my ears
Track Name: Woman of Mine
She came down like a savior
down to rescue me
but when I tried to name her
she wouldn't give in to me
this woman of mine

knows what she's doing, what should I do?
where this was going, I never knew
was she trying to lead on?
with her tears as I'd bleed on

when the time comes to an end
I gotta give it all I can
free my mind of life taking times
before the day is through
in a world where the careless survive
from the years of tears they hide
it's time I give it up, this love that isn't true

she came knocking on my door
and I opened up once more
gave her a chance to redeem
a little time to scream
out the thoughts on her mind
and all the problems trapped inside
but then she's off to the next friend

when the time comes to an end
I gotta give it all I can
free my mind of life taking times
before the day is through
in a world where the careless survive
from the years of tears they hide
it's time I give it up, this love that isn't true

when the time comes to an end I've gotta give it all I can give
to free up my mind I've gotta decide it's time that I live
I'll just leave it all behind, for a time peace comes to mind
eventually I'll find out how, cause it's what I have to do
Track Name: Pretend
My faith in love is gone
my fear of God not strong
my needs no longer to belong

I waste another day
I dream the night away
one shade away from grey, I am

will she love me again
will she love me again
I've lost the strength to pretend

I've seen the other side
enjoyed what others hide
the good & evil still collide

I hope that hope's not gone
as I sing my somber song
to justify all of my wrong

will she love me again
will she love me again
I really hate to pretend

It's easy to say - without anyone I'd be ok
and without love - I'd never cry
I know, I should - change my perspective for the good
because chances are, alone I'll die

will she love me again
when all my innocence descend
I've lost the strength to pretend
will she love me again
when all my thoughts seem to offend
I really hate to pretend
Track Name: I'm Only Waiting
When I come crawling to you
It may seem I've fallen for you
I'm not hesitating
or anticipating
not even complicating, the truth

I'm only waiting for you
waiting for you, I am
waiting it through
cause waiting is who I am

I'm always one step behind
luckily I'm the quick & clever kind
my minds entertaining
such self deprecating
it feels so liberating and blind

when I am waiting for you
waiting for you, I am
waiting it through
cause waiting is who....

I am the one now
ready to take control
of my heart and soul
I'm waiting here
and that's all it's gonna be

waiting for you
waiting for you, I am
waiting it through
cause waiting is who I am
Track Name: Far From Home
I know what I feel - can't deny
when the moment is real I won't set it aside
God must have chose you for a reason
It's easier to feel that it was just your time

when you're far from home, don't forget me
when every-thing's known, don't regret me
I loved you so, now you know

The last moments we shared - were not the same
you said I will carry - on the family name
you made it so easy to stay strong
when the river runs dry - it's time to move on

when you're far from home, don't forget me
when everything's known, don't regret me
I loved you so, now you know

Do you know, how you've touched my soul?
Do you know... you've shown me a life where I can be in control
Do you know... to not only dream but to take on that role
Do you know?

I gotta feeling that you know.... I gotta feeling that you know
Track Name: I Do It For You
Without a reason
whether we laugh or we cry
because our love is true
I understand why

I do it for you
you do it for me
we do it for us
love sets us free

I change with the season
the rain can leave me dry
because our love is true
it's worth it to try

I do it for you
you do it for me
we do it for us
it's easy to see

that when nothing is broke just leave it alone
cause when love was a joke - I felt so alone
I remember a time my love was locked away
but since I found you, it's easy to say

I do it for you
you do it for me
we do it for us
love sets us free

without a reason - I DO IT FOR YOU
whether we laugh or we cry - YOU DO IT FOR ME
because our love is true - WE DO IT FOR US
I understand why - LOVE SETS US FREE

I do it for you
you do it for me
we do it for us
we do it for...
we do it for... love
