Track Name: Waiting For The Magic
Waiting For The Magic

I’m Mr. all alone I stay at home
cos I don't have the courage to leave
Used to make that walk every once in awhile
With my heart hanging on off of his sleeve
And they'd tear it up, Lead It on,
And leave it lying there in the street
For the whole world to see
But I’m trying to believe

CHORUS
I’m waiting for the magic
Something real that I can touch
Far away from tragic
Something true that I can love
Every hearts gotta have it
Like it’s sent down from above
The kind you can’t get enough of
Waiting for the magic
I'm Mr. bright blue sky with open eyes
And I’m letting the light find me
It ain’t come around but I ain't ever found
A reason not to believe
And it just takes time, and some hills to climb
And some landing on my feet
Cos i’ve always seen, the forest for the trees

CHORUS

You know all it takes is faith that it’ll find you
And believing tin day that it’ll come through

CHORUS
Track Name: Save Each other
Save Each Other

When all you're demons find you
And only dark surround you
I'll be coming around
And when there’s walls around you
You don't know how to get through
I can break them down
I'm a broken boat of baggage
There’s fraying in my sails
And I ain't going to make it myself

CHORUS
Every fire, Every time hurts
But it leaves fading scars
That shows the heart the truth
When the rain floods
And the waves clutch
They ain't strong enough
to swallow me and you
Cos you and I save each other
I'll be the arms that hold you
The safest place you run to
When the hurt sets in
Nothing will ever take you
This love will always come through
Shining in the end
I'm a broken boat of baggage
You keep me afloat
And I ain't gonna make it on my own

CHORUS
You and I save each other
You and I save each other
You and I save each other
When all you're demons find you
And only dark surround you
Track Name: The Rio Grande
The Rio Grande

In the distance there's a home
Where the lights shine like diamond stones
Calling me like a beating drum
Across The Rio Grande
Where dreams are only yours to lose
And you can lose every part of you
In a feeling of something true
Across The Rio Grande
Some might say, “It’s a world away”
But my eyes can see the shoreline
So I’m holding on
To the home I long
Praying all it takes is time
There's a girl that waits for me
A little house and an orange tree
Steady work and some mouths to feed
Across The Rio Grande
Some might say, “It’s a world away”
But my eyes can see the shoreline
So I’m holding on
Like a burning sun
Until I reach the borderline
All I need is a lot of luck
A little from the lord above
And the strength to never give up
On The Rio Grande
Give me strength to never give up
On The Rio Grande
Track Name: All You Want
All You Want

I thought I could hold you for a while
That I could leave the reasons for your smile
Call it anything you want
Call it crazy, call it wrong
But I thought I could hold you for a while
I thought that I’d always have the chance
To pick you up and ask you for a dance
That I could sweep you across the floor
Like we ain't fighting anymore
I thought I would always have a chance

CHORUS
You can find someone and still feel lost
Have all the money in the world
And you still end up counting costs
Or burn the past down like a fire
Try to hold on to desire
Cos when you love somebody
When you love somebody
It's all you want

CHORUS

Cos when you love somebody
When you love somebody
It's all you want
Track Name: Hollow Town
Hollow Town

All our money I spent, and lost my job
When your plane went down, I fell off
Everything was fine, everything got lost
After your face was on the news
I still leave your boots in the backseat
All your records play like memories
Of us dancing down on second street
Before it all went wrong
All I'm looking for is redemption
All I'm looking for is a safe haven
All I'm looking for is a bright moon rising
out of this hollow town
We used to say, “Time can heal anything”
But it’s hard when I’ve lost everything
Everything that meant the most to me
But you know, I ain’t giving up
All I'm looking for is redemption
All I'm looking for is a safe haven
All I'm looking for is nothing
I’ve been finding
Cos all I'm looking for is you still
All I'm looking for is myself
All I'm looking for is
An angel rising out of this hollow town
Of this broken heart town
But I’m sticking it out
Track Name: Let Mercy Find Me
Let Mercy Find Me

Oh my god I know I've had some stumbles
Didn't always have the cleanest hands
But you always were whom I relied on
When my feet could only barely stand
Gave me company I have to hold on
Got me past what I alone can't do
When the road I walked was long and winding
All the writing on the wall was you

CHORUS
Let mercy find me
Find me, find me
Let mercy find me
Find me, find me
When my bodies near the end of walking
And my ears can't hear her sing to me
If my eyes can't see the home I'm leaving
Let me go and rest where I am free
Lay me down beside that rolling river
Let the sun beat down upon my face
Until the light burns all my wrongs
and struggles
And the water washes me away

CHORUS
Track Name: Vacant Motel Heart
Vacant Motel Heart

I'm still parked out by the lake
80 miles from Santa Fe
Where I told you how I felt
But you still moved on
And the dust keeps kicking up
But you still ain't picking up
And your voicemail still can't tell me what
went wrong

CHORUS
My love is a dirt road home
It's a worn-out bed-stand Bible
My love will always be there by your side
My love is a watch you've gotta wind
Like silver you got to shine
But I Guess it ain't enough
To make you want to stay
In this vacant motel heart

Lately I've been looking back
To that Sunday at the track
Places bets that we both knew
we couldn't win
You bet on “Keeping Time”
I bet it all on “You and I“
Maybe things were never quite
the same again

CHORUS

Somewhere
There’s someone,
Who’s going to see

CHORUS

And someday somebody’s gonna
come along and stay
Who’s never going to break
My vacant motel h
Track Name: You Could've Loved Me
You Could’ve Loved Me

You could’ve loved me
But I did it all wrong
Running around
Taking my time
Taking to long
You were an anchor
I was wild and free
But you could’ve loved me
It's crazy to see you
Wearing that ring
We could've been young and dumb and reckless
We could've been anything
You had your reasons
I had my dreams
But you could’ve loved me

CHORUS
Sometimes love falls in your hands
Sometimes love have other plans
Sometimes good good things
Just get away from us
I'd be lying If I said I didn't have any regrets
I just know it has to be this way because
I'm still exactly who I was

You could’ve loved me
If it happened just right
But we rise and we fall and you can't win them all
Cos that's just life
It ain’t like the stories you see in the movies
But you could've loved me

CHORUS

But You could've loved me
If I could've stayed
But the world kept pulling me outta this town
And it's better this way
Cos I'm still a dreamer
Wild and free
But you could've loved me
Track Name: Love Me or Leave Me Alone
Love Me or Leave Me Alone

I’ve been holding this in
From the very first kiss
I’ve been losing my mind
Trying to keep up like this
But we both know that there comes a time
And I hate to sound harsh or unkind

CHORUS
But love me or leave me alone
Hold me or just let me go
Cos I’ve felt this fire for so long
So baby love me, love me,
Love me or leave me alone

If you’re just playing along
We’re just playing ourselves
And I don't want you to run
Away to somebody else
Cos there’s a magic between you and I
And I hate this impatience of mine

CHORUS

Yeah we both know that there comes a time
And I’m laying my heart on the Line

CHORUS
Track Name: Something Great
Something Great

You said you were tired
This morning you were gone
I guess it wasn’t my fortune
To keep you for me own
And I won’t lie it hurt a little
To pull that picture off the wall
On the back you wrote “shotgun 92’,
The smallest town of all”

CHORUS
It don’t matter were you’re going
As long as you don’t let it go to waste
When you find your light you’ve got to show it
Cos the world deserves something beautiful
Something Great

You never counted on forever
I new it all along
Yeah yesterday was better
But it ain’t where you belong
And tomorrow you’ll be somewhere
That I’ve probably never seen
But I know you’re going to get there
And I wont let it get to me

CHORUS
Track Name: Off and On (feat. Mindy Smith)
Off and On

It's no secret
You'll be leaving me to chase the wind
Like wild horses you run
It's just how it's always been
I’ve got it memorized
You go and then I

CHORUS
Leave a door wide open
Let you in and out
I’ve settled in to never settling’ down
Cos you don't stay long
But you don't stay gone
So I'll be with you always
Off and on

I can say goodbye
As long as goodbye’s not the end
And if I'm only wasting time
I'm wasting time well spent
You’re just all I know
And you love me or you don’t

CHORUS

It’s like I dreamed
It’s like I’m home
Whenever you’re home off and on
We’re on and then
You’re off again
And so again

CHORUS
Track Name: Ruler of Your Heart
The Ruler of Your Heart

I've been running for miles I ain't tired
I won't stop until I wear you down
Nothing is able to put out this fire
And it won't belong until I reach you

CHORUS
Tell the keeper of your soul
That I'll fight again tomorrow
And I will tackle your love
I won't ever ease up
Through the blisters on my hands
Every puddle, every shower
Tell the ruler of your heart
That I'm coming for it now

You can’t shoulder desire forever
Your pace is slowing down again
You know this race you'll never win
There is no way I'm leaving without you
I've handled hell before
And it ain't what you’re looking for

CHORUS
