Track Name: Something
Well maybe we've no need for them
Mistrust and self defense
I'm on your side
Our alliance is our confidence
I don't need permission
To do what my heart tells me to do
With magnificent precision
it drew these lines that brought me straight here to you

And baby you've got my attention
Honey, my intentions I'll be
making good on them all
If I'm good at one thing
I want it to be loving
Turns nothing into something
Ruins turn to fortress walls

It's a fixed competition
We can't win at least we know
their ladders only go so high
They won't take us to the mountain snow
You don't ever have to question
You are all I want
All I want

Oh baby you've got my attention
Honey, my intentions I'll be
making good on them all
if I'm good at one thing
I want it to be loving
Turns nothing into something
Ruins turn to fortress walls
Oh we've got something
Something
Track Name: Gold Rush

Well they told me son
sift and dig this ground
there'll be gold out there
where you're lost you're found

So I left my home, and I took to them hills,
all for the gold there in the ground
all for the gold to be found

So I climbed my horse
and I grabbed my pan
and I made my way through the devils land
You know I spilled my blood and I lost my soul
all for the gold there in the ground
all for the gold there to be found

And those hills ran red with my very blood
and my feet were caught in the fire and the mud
You know I looked to home but I could not turn back
not from the gold there in the ground
not from the gold there to be found

Well they told me son on these hills you'll die
Ain't no gold out there, it was all a lie
You think you dig for gold
You just dig your own grave
There ain't no gold there in the ground
There ain't no gold there to be found
There ain't no gold in the ground
There ain't no gold to be found
Track Name: Baby Please
We met and we married young
when life was long and love was fun
right away all the children came
from all the love we made
well it was love back then

These days it feels like love's faded
Just like this whole goddamn life got in the way
I know we said forever
but look at the weather
Why's it gotta change?

I don't think that I know you
the ways I use to know you
that would make you smile way back then
calendars keep turning
ours hearts continue burning
but towards other peoples flames

Baby please don't leave
It may be hard to believe
But I need you now
I need you now
Oh baby please

What now after the crying
All the dying inside
Funny we both lost our wedding rings
Is it a prophesy or gold to find

Cause baby I just ain't ready
to up and walk away
Please stay
like the children prayed
Won't you please
try and love me once again

Because I don't think that I know you
the ways I use to know you
that would make you smile way back then
Calendars keep turning
ours hearts continue burning
but toward other peoples flames

Baby please don't leave
It may be hard to believe
but I need you now
I need you now
oh baby please
Track Name: Passenger Blues
Wanting and needing
don't make a sound
Scrapes till you're bleeding
and blaming the ground

Someone taught me wrong
I feel let down
and tired of my circumstances
dragging me around
Passenger blues
give me a wheel
drive to my second chance
just time on my heels
It's always running out
always running out

Self deceiving
to believe a lie
we paint the ceiling
so it's open sky

Someone taught me wrong
I feel let down
and tired of my circumstances
dragging me around
Passenger blues
give me a wheel
drive to my second chance
just time on my heels
It's always running out
always running out
Track Name: Ten Steps
If I take solace in loneliness
discarding hope for security
Will I be free
to spend my days
all by myself just one mouth to feed
Disavowing the love that be
Is that ok, is that just me
All these wounds inside they bleed
from all the pain that was placed on me

And I don't want to be
ten steps from free
it's just ike free to slip away from me
And I don't want to be ten steps from free now
It's just like free to slip away and leave

You know that freedom is tried and true
And I don't got it if I got you
Now you don't want me, that much is clear
I'm just wondering what's been keeping me here

Its been a long time, a long time coming
you can see it coming round the bend
I hate to say it, hard to relate it
but its now or never for better weather in the end

I don't want to be, ten steps from free
It's just like free to slip away from me
I don't want to be ten steps from free now
It's just like free to slip away and leave
Track Name: Best Year
It's gonna be my very best year
I'm gonna put my money down right here
I"m gonna wear my most expensive dress
when I am feeling like I'm worth less
I'm gonna play these tricks on myself,
only the kind that are good for my health
I'm gonna build my confidence in time
I wouldn't make it your work when it's mine

Fate shows no remorse
when life takes a different course
Any turn in the story
can break us or bring us glory

I'm glad to know you're gonna be near
I'm taking off my sweater while you steer
We're gonna go somewhere we've never been
We're gonna roll the windows down and lean into the wind

When living feels like a race. I'm running hard trying to place
Better if it's a ride
I'll just find my way inside

It's gonna be my very best year
you're gonna be astonished when you hear
I'm not afraid of making a mistake
Bolder than a backwards dive into a glacier lake

I feel like I belong
when I know all the words to the song
All I love I've guarded
Finally home is where my heart is

It's gonna be my very best year
Track Name: XO
I got a running start
Where did you go ?
Followed my heart
led me in a circle
learning all I forgot
cried a lot
waited on god
overrated answers
only know life is hard
how do you feel?
I feel alright
I won't be discouraged
swinging myself around
above the ground
between trees
falling off a hammock and I
I feel alive
ah! pour me another!
waltz down the boulevard
we're laughing hard
we're laughing hard
I try to pick you up
when there you go stumbling now
after a cloud
we'll nail it down
wish I had a hammer
I
I feel alive
Is that my brother out in my mother's yard?
where did you go?
up in my room
needing no attention
sInging my second thoughts
weightless dots like you and me
swimming in the ocean
I
I feel alive
alive
alive
ah! it's like another life
Track Name: Finest Thing
You are the dark haired girl
you are the flapper with the curl
you always know whats best babe

We're at the bar you are my guest
You're on the dance floor looking like a ten spot

I'm on the wall just sippin whiskey hoping hot shot

I catch your eyes they are a flame

I catch your smile and its the same
you are the finest thing
the finest thing I've ever seen

you are the dark haired girl
you are the princess with the pearls

you are my house on fire babe
you are my one desire babe

I'll be your stackhouse man
I aim to please you if I can and I'll be your house on fire babe
I'll be your one desire babe
You are the finest thing
the finest thing
I've ever seen
Track Name: Keep to the Road
when I think about your baby eyes

well then, I cant sleep at night

When I think that I may fall for you

it gets me all tied up inside

I remember somebody told me

don't you stop being free

We all need our time

Don't listen to them
The loneliest hearts belong to men

Just keep to road

though lonely it goes

Well I seen your heart and I seen your smile

Sometimes I just want to die

God forbid the day that I fall in love

and forbid the day that I cry

I remember somebody told me

don't you stop being free

We all need our time

Just don't let them in
The loneliest hearts belong to men

Just keep to road

though lonely it goes
Track Name: All's Well
How easily my world was spun when I was young
and looking for a lover
to crown me with significance
make me a wife and a mother
Now even still it's a thrill
to see how fast my heart can take a corner
I nearly crashed so many times
if I had dimes! I'd buy back lost honor

Time tells we need each other
nothing is as comforting
or colder when you're suffering
than a shoulder
Be with me now
we need each other
it may not be this good again
don't let it end
don't let it be over

My ideals and tried beliefs
smile at me with missing teeth and sad eyes
beaten by the mystery
sticking around for a consolation prize
I went off in my head to a bed
where we were together
all the pillows on the floor
down for more ask me for forever

I know all's well
if we've got each other
nothing is as comforting
or colder when you're suffering
than a shoulder
Be with me now
we need each other
it may not be this good again
don't let it end
don't let it be over
