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
2.
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

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

All You Want 04:10
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
5.
Hollow Town 04:10
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
6.
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
7.
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

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
9.
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
10.
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
11.
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
12.
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
