Track Name: Now I know - album version
A C#m Bm
I should have died that night outside of Reno
A C#m Bm D
But the Devil let me go
A C#m Bm
I shoulda died a long time ago
A E Bm
Why I’m still here I don’t know

E A
So I dance with the sun every morning
E A
A lot of spirit, a lot of soul a lot of meaning
C#m Bm

Men like me don’t have a past
E A
We don’t live old but we live fast


A C#m Bm
I should have died that night outside of Reno
A C#m Bm D
But the Devil let me go
A C#m Bm
I shoulda died a long time ago
A E Bm
Why I’m still here I don’t know

One door closed another will open
Softer words will be spoken
She loves me like a snake loves to bite
Like darkness kills the light


A C#m Bm
I should have died that night outside of Reno
A C#m Bm D
On my way back from the show
A C#m Bm
But we met and shared our first Hello
A E Bm
Why I’m still here now I know
Track Name: I'd tell you 'bout - album version
I’d tell you ‘bout the birds, I’d tell you ‘bout the bees
I’d drive you in my cars but I misplaced the keys
My life is upside down let’s leave for another town
Sometimes a man he tries to drown

I’d tell you bout the clouds I’d tell you bout the rain
I’d tell you bout the times when I cried from the pain

My life is upside down let’s leave for another town
Sometimes a man he tries to drown

I’d tell you bout the doubts I’d tell you bout the tears
I’d tell you bout the feelings of rage and the fears

My life is upside down let’s leave for another town
Sometimes a man he tries to drown

I’d tell you bout the silence I’d tell you bout the sighs
I’d tell you bout the baby and my anguish when she cries

My life is upside down let’s leave for another town
Sometimes a man he tries to drown
Track Name: Someone Will
D. a. g
Someone used to live here,
someone who had dreams
Someones used to live here
Now it’s empty it seems


Someone used to love here
Someone used to care
Someone used to love here
With a heart big enough to share


A Bm
Someone could love again
G
Someone could dream again
A
Someone could take your hand
D
Someone will my friend


Someone used to laugh here
Someone used to smile
Someone used to laugh here
But it’s been a while



A Bm
Someone could love again
G
Someone could dream again
A
Someone could take your hand
D
Someone will my friend


A
And when the sun shines down on you
Bm
And these words finally ring true


Take the time to live again


Take the time to dream again


Take the time to laugh again


Take the time to smile again


Take the time to love again
Track Name: What happened?
C
What happened to this train
Did we run outta track
Am
Can we start again
Or is there no coming back
F
It’s driving me insane
This running with the pack
C
What happened to this train
G
How did we fade to black

What happened to this place
We never said farewell
It’s just an empty space
With no stories left to tell
She’s gone but just in case
I checked the wishing well
What happened to this place
We’re gone without a trace


F
What happened to us all, since when do we feel small
Who will answer the call, stand up after they fall


What happened to your heart
That was beating in my chest
How did we fall apart
Who coulda known or guessed
That you’d need a fresh start
You’d no longer feel blessed
What happened to your heart
Why am I second best
Track Name: The last hurrah
Running from the law
Running as fast as you ever saw
Running from the law
This is my last hurrah

The sheriff’s knocking at my door
Gotta say it’s happened before
I’m wanted for reasons best ignored

I’m running from the law
Running that’s my flaw
Running from the law
This is the last straw

I’m not that bad at the core
I don’t think it matters anymore
I’ve got too much to answer for

They haven’t caught me yet
but the day is young
I hope I’ll get
To finish this song

Running from the law
Running as fast as you ever saw
Running from the law
Hey Sheriff, how can fast can you draw?
Track Name: The I said, she said song
She said Mister I have a bone to pick with you
I said well, I have a bone for you, too
She said it’s not nearly as funny as you think
I said it’s funny all right, but you need another drink


She said not everything in life has gotta be a joke
I said you don’t have to fix it just because it’s broke
She said keep it up if you really wanna see me leave
I said well, your backside’s your best side I do believe


So we were writing us an I said, she said song
Right up until the point she said So long
I thought it was so right, but she felt it was so wrong
And that’s the end of our I said, she said song


When she came back to get her stuff she wasn’t alone
I said Fella just so you know she’s only on loan
She said dream on big boy you’ll never see me again
I said it’s not a matter of it but a matter of when


She flipped me the finger so I flipped her around
I let my eyes linger, kissed her without a sound
Fella tried to cut in but she pushed him to the ground
So I took it as a yes and ordered another round
Track Name: Lonely without you
I’m lonely without you
The days go by but I can’t find my happy
Lonely without you
I wish I could fly to where you need to be

Lonely without you
I wanna feel you by my side
Lonely without you
Can’t buy me joy God knows I tried

Lonely without you
I just wanna say hi when you wake next to me
Lonely without you
Let's simplify and and share the same key



Lonely without you

I wanna feel you by my side

Lonely without you

Can’t buy me joy God knows I tried

Lonely without you x2

Lonely without you
Baby you can't deny our love makes us free
I gotta ask why you're not here with me



Lonely without you

I wanna feel you by my side

Lonely without you

Can’t buy me joy God knows I tried
Track Name: Madly in love
You smile at me and my day starts
There’s so much love in both our hearts
I want a lifetime of you and me
A lifetime where we both can be

Madly in love with the life that we build
Madly in love with the way that we feel
Madly in love with a happiness so real
Madly in love

Madly in love with the thought of you near
Madly in love with the knowledge that we’re
Madly in love, let me whisper in your ear
I love you my dear
…madly in love

You smile at me and my life sings
Like a butterfly with brand new wings
I want a lifetime of tenderness
In love, I know, not in love, I guess


Madly in love with the life that we build
Madly in love with the way that we feel
Madly in love with a happiness so real
Madly in love

Madly in love with the thought of you near
Madly in love with the knowledge that we’re
Madly in love, let me whisper in your ear
I love you my dear
…madly in love

My eyes shut but my heart knows
Am
I wanna feel you near

Feel my heart cheer

Madly in love with a happiness so real
Madly in love

Madly in love with the thought of you near
Madly in love with the knowledge that we’re
Madly in love, let me whisper in your ear
I love you my dear
…madly in love
Track Name: Will you be

Track Name: Freedoms within
G Bm
We lived in the freedom hills
C Cm
A life not made of thrills
We found peace in the river
Nature’s a tireless giver

We’d fish the day away
Whether the sky was blue or gray
We’d rest under the trees
Comforted by the breeze

Am C G
My dad, he never did give me a name
Am C G D
Said he loved me just the same
Am C G
My mom she left in search of a big win
She never felt the freedom within

We went to school when we ran out of books
The teacher shot us dirty looks
Daddy said life will teach you the ropes
Long before the world kills your last hopes


Am C G
My dad, he never did give me a name
Am C G D
Said he loved me just the same
Am C G
My mom she left in search of a big win
She never felt the freedom within
