Track Name: Mama
Hello, my friend. It’s been too long,
Can we start over?
Seems like forever since we smiled,
In the same direction.
Won’t you save me from this sinking ship?
I can’t forget.
That we walked together, side by side.
Now we hardly ever even talk.
I never wanted someone new.
All ever wanted was you.
Won’t you save me from this sinking ship?
I can’t forget, I won’t regret.
I never wanted to make you cry,
That’s what I get for trying.
One more last thing before I go,
You’ll never have to see me no more.
Tell your mama that I said hello,
She always liked me the most.
Track Name: The Melody
Would you go or would you stay,
If I told you that someday,
I would take your hand and make it mine forever?
You never wanted anything,
But every now and then I’d hear you scream out loud,
When things don’t go your way.
I’ll take care of you,
If you want me to,
And I’ll be your man,
But only if you say I can.
Sitting on your back porch in the shade,
Making out like we got it made,
Just getting high on homemade apple moonshine.
Your little sister came home from class.
She took a glass and drank it fast.
And now she’s sleeping, drunk on homemade wine.
I’ll take care of you,
If you want me to,
And I’ll be your man,
But only if you say I can.
Everybody’s talking all over this old town,
They say you’re no good but I’ll never put you down.
I’ve never been too good with words,
That’s why I wrote this song for her,
A melody to keep me on her mind.
There’s only so much time at hand,
So make the best while you can,
And find true love and keep love n your life.
I’ll take care of you,
If you want me to,
And I’ll be your man,
But only if you say I can.
Track Name: Love and Misery
It hurts like hell to see you again,
You’ve been beside me since this all began,
You were the one that taught me to fight for what I just felt was right.
It ain’t her fault that she took me away,
It’s all on my shoulders I’m all to blame,
She was the woman that showed me the way through the dark.
I love that girl.
I need somebody to tell me that it’s okay,
Someone to listen when all I do is complain,
Someone to hold my head when all I want to do is lie in bed.
Nothing’s for nothing and we’re all the same,
But you only come around when you need me,
But I don’t need anything you got to give to me now.
I need somebody to tell me that it’s okay,
Someone to listen when all I do is complain,
Someone to hold my head when all I want to do is lie in bed.
I can’t believe it. This can’t be true,
That there’d come a day I’d say this to you,
I’ll never leave and you’ll find your way back to me.
I love misery.
Track Name: Only You
Only you could ever make me pine,
Only you can set my world afire,
Only you can take my sunshine away,
So I cry, I cry for only you.
Only you can tear my world apart,
Only you could ever break my heart,
Only you can make me waste away the day,
So I take my time, for only you.
Only you can make me feel such pain,
Only you can pull me up again,
Only you could ever understand,
So I wait, I wait for only you.
I’ve tried, I’ve tried to get her back,
But that’s no good,
If I could forget her, man, I surely would.
Only you keep me broken down,
Only you never come around,
Only you can find your way back home,
So I wait, I wait for only you.
Track Name: Better Days
Left my home a long time ago,
Never looked back but I never looked forward,
Never though much about the road I’m on,
But that’s a long time ago.
Me and dad, we never got along,
Never talked much about the going-ons,
Never could admit that we both was wrong,
But that’s a long time ago.
I’ll be damned,
Life caught up with me,
Wish I’d known before, I guess, what I know now,
Instead of waiting for better days.
Met my love a long time ago.
She was the only one I knew for sure.
When she left I thought I’d love no more.
But that’s a long time ago.
I’ll be damned,
Life caught up with me,
Wish I’d known before, I guess, what I know now,
Instead of waiting for better days.
When I was a boy,
Life was simple and true,
But that was a long time ago.
But I’m still kind of the same,
And I’ll never change my ways,
And there’s thoughts I learned were true,
That I no longer subscribe to,
And I’m tired of being last,
We’re all pieces of our past,
Never doubt the master plan,
Better live your life while you still can,
And if you feel me let me hear you shout it out.
I’ll be damned,
Life caught up with me,
Wish I’d known before, I guess, what I know now,
Instead of waiting for better days.
Track Name: Gods and Men
Lift up your daughters,
Lift up your sons,
So they won’t be lonely when we’re all gone.
Make sure you stay true to whom you are,
Don’t be downhearted, it’s not your fault,
Don’t you be downhearted.
When you go meet that man in the sky,
Tell him no stories,
Tell him no lies.
Lay down your guns you don’t need them no more,
This ain’t our fight, no this ain’t our war,
This ain’t our fight no more.
Seek you no fortune,
Don’t be so bold,
We can’t be bought with silver and gold,
This ain’t our story, this ain’t our plan,
It’s bigger than god, it’s bigger than man,
We’re only gods and men.
Now is the time,
‘Cause time’s all we have,
To leave all behind and make this our stand.
Don’t make no bother whose side you’re on,
All falls in place when all falls apart,
This all will fall apart.
Track Name: Recipe
Mean ol’ sally she’s got a recipe,
She’s got a recipe for breaking,
Breaking my heart.
She once told me, “I won’t see you again,”
She won’t see me no more because she’s,
In love with her man.
If she means what she said,
Tell me why she keeps knocking on my door.
I’m a fool for loving her again,
Loving her again because she,
Belongs to someone else.
Maybe someday I’ll find a way to be
Find a way to be without her,
Let that woman go.
But until that day comes ‘round,
Guess you know where I’ll be found. Yeah, on my own.
No baby please don’t break my heart,
No baby please don’t break my heart,
‘Cause I’ve got a sinking feeling baby.
Track Name: Queen of the Ball
She’ll make you smile,
She’ll make you shed a tear,
And you will feel how lonely you are when she sings,
Oh god when she sings she can break your heart.
She’s never sad,
There’s beauty in her laugh,
And you wonder if she misses you at all,
Cause when she comes around she’s never alone.
The way she moves,
Could quiet even the loudest room,
And she don’t even have to say anything at all,
Cause everybody knows she’s the queen of the ball.
She’s out of sight,
She’s out of this world,
And she don’t give a thought to where she’s been,
Cause she only knows where she’s going.
She belongs to none,
Her love is like a gun,
And she never misses at all
Her aim is true, she’s put her spell on you.
She’ll make you smile,
She’ll make you shed a tear,
And you will feel how lonely you are when she sings,
Oh god when she sings she can break your heart.
Track Name: Everybody
I heard you found another man and that he’s swell and fine,
Could it be he’s better than me at wasting your time?
I call you up just to hear you speak but I get no reply,
The last night I had a good night sleep I was by your side.
I need a place to go,
Where I can be alone,
Far away from you and everybody that you know,
That we know.
So give your sorries to someone else, we both did our best,
Some folk got it and some folk don’t. And some take all the rest.
But in the end we both did what we felt was right,
You saw things and I saw things in very different lights.
I need a place to go,
Where I can be alone,
Far away from you and everybody that you know,
That we know.
Things ain’t like they were before,
And I don’t want to cry no more over you,
I should’ve caught myself before I started falling.
Rain don’t look quite the same no more since that fateful night,
When you pulled out the rug from underneath my fragile smile.
But in the end we both did what we felt was right,
You saw things and I saw things in very different lights.
I need a place to go,
Where I can be alone,
Far away from you and everybody that you know,
That we know.
