Track Name: Have you ever
Have you ever looked at the sky and wished for rain?
Have you ever been so high you wished for pain
Have you ever been so low that your blood forgot to flow
Have you ever been afraid to glow

Have you ever smiled at a child just because
Have you ever loved someone because Jesus does
Have you ever been so low that you forgot to say let’s go
Have you ever been afraid to glow

Life sure can be a harsh mistress
Life can be a dirty business

Have you ever had a drink and wished for sleep
Have you ever thought I’m in too deep
Have you ever been so low that love was so long ago
Have you ever been afraid to glow

That time when you’re about to blow
When fear has nowhere else to go
When tears are all you’ve got to show
Keep searching for your own rainbow
Track Name: Love was everywhere
Well I’m still reeling from the time we met
You’re not the kind of girl I could forget
Your eyes looked down deep inside my soul
You read my heart just like an ancient scroll

Well I’m still reeling from the time we kissed
I make myself at home on waiting lists
So it came to me as a surprise
When you offered your lips and closed your eyes

And love was everywhere that day
From your smile to the sky no longer gray
Yeah love was everywhere in sight
Our souls were joined all through the night

Well I’m still reeling from the time we cried
When we forgot to let love be our guide
We both thought we knew so much better
But our eyes have never been any wetter

And love was everywhere that day
From your smile to the sky no longer gray
Yeah love was everywhere in sight
Our souls were joined all through the night

Yeah I'm still reeling from it all
Your love as hot as a fireball
I want to feel every inch of you
I want to know this love is true
yeah I'm still reeling from it all
Track Name: Split up
Am G
I had a split up with a girl
F G
Twas the end of my damn world
AM G F
But she didn’t care enough to say goodbye

Imagine who you’d think I’d be
If she was still right next to me
I bet I wouldn’t be a damn barfly

C G
I know there ain’t no way to tell
Anyway you can’t unring that bell
It’s true the bottle let me down
Still I’m out drinking in this town

I’ve been gone on the trip inside
My life is stuck at low tide
And there’s my soul revealed for all to see

I wish I didn’t feel so fried
I can’t find my way off that ride
And there’s my soul drifting off to sea
Track Name: That's how come I wrote this song
We're coming to the part of day
When I'm haunted by what the preacher said
Preacher said, last Sunday

And I think of my evil way
That always comes with a price to pay
Price to pay, come what may

Am I running out of people to betray?
Or am I tired of this game I play

We’re coming to that part of the night
When the heart in my chest feels way too tight
Way too tight and that ain’t right

And I think of what brings me delight
Yes my life can be that black and white
Black and white, and it don't shine so bright

Am I running out of people to fight
Or am I tired of never doing right

We’re coming to that part of The song
Where I admit, what I do is wrong
It's so wrong, I guess I ain't that strong
You could say, I've known it all along
That's how come I wrote this song.
Track Name: Happiest man in the land
I don’t believe in ghosts but there’s so much history here
I'm not smarter than most but I know whom I should fear
As I stand on the coast and memories disappear
I don’t believe in ghosts but there’s so much history here

I don’t believe in love but I’ve seen love grow to the sky
And if I look above I can still see it shine in your eye
The pain we get rid of comes back please don’t ask me why
I don’t believe in love but I’ve seen love grow to the sky

And I will fight a thousand wars to hold you in my arms
I’ll drink in a thousand bars to forget all your charms
And if again I could be yours, if we could live hand in hand
If God would open all the doors I’d be the happiest man in the land

I don’t believe in make believe I don’t believe in dreams
I may still be a bit naive but I know I can’t change teams
There’s a time to laugh, a time to grieve and a time to smile it seems
I don’t believe in make believe I don’t believe in dreams

And I will fight a thousand wars to hold you in my arms
I’ll drink in a thousand bars to forget all your charms
And if again I could be yours, if we could live hand in hand
If God would open all the doors I’d be the happiest man in the land

I don’t believe in ghosts but there’s so much history here
I'm not smarter than most but I know whom I should fear
As I stand on the coast and memories disappear
I don’t believe in ghosts but there’s so much history here
Track Name: Love the one they hate
Love the one you are
You’re a shining star
Love your every scar
Yeah love the one you are

Love the one you’re not
In our great melting pot
Love with all you got
Yeah love the one you’re not

Love the one they hate
When they discriminate
Love ‘em, don’t you wait
Love the one they hate

Love the one who smiles
HIs way through life’s trials
Walk by him a few miles
Yeah love the one who smiles

Love the one who cries
Tears flowing from his eyes
Trouble will arise
Yeah so love the one who cries
Track Name: (I'd like to drink with) Someone
I'd like to drink with someone for a change
I don’t think it’d be that strange
Cause I drink alone when the sun goes down
Just me and this old bottle of Crown

I’d like to drink with someone who is here
Not just with the ghosts from yesteryear
Cause I drink alone till I cross that line
Just me and this old bottle of wine

So friend let me pour you a few
And we’ll talk all night like young boys do
Sit back down, let’s drink for a while
Friend you might even see me smile

I’d like to drink with someone who can laugh
Don’t look at the bottle & say I had enough
Cause I drink alone until the bad dreams come
Just me and this old bottle of rum

I’d like to drink with someone who can sing
Someone who knows that love is king
Cause I drink alone till time can’t find my watch
Just me and this old bottle of scotch

So let me pour you a few
And we’ll talk all night like young boys do
Sit back down, let’s drink for a while
Friend you might even see me smile
Track Name: Back to the light
He said I'm good and done talking to the Lord
I tried love now I'm going with the sword
No more falling to my knees
No more begging please
He said I'm good and done talking to the Lord

His woman's gone but she still prays for him
She says holy water doesn't care if you can't swim
Don't turn your back on Grace,
His love you can't replace
his woman's gone but she still prays for him

And the tears he cries God already cried
The pain he feels God feels it inside
It's a lonely walk in the dark of the night
why don't you start walking back to the Light

He said this world's no better on my own
I thought I'd be better off alone
I'm gonna bend my head
pray like i've never prayed
He said this world's no better on my own
