Track Name: With you
She went away for a day or two
She didn’t say what she would do
She went away, she didn’t say
It was with you

I waited here and my fear grew
Had me a beer, had me a few
I Waited here, somehow I knew
She was with you

Now she can’t look me in the eye
She just came to say good bye
Packed a few things,
Took off our rings
Don’t even know the reason why

Been half a year since we’ve been through
Still want her near, still feeling blue
I stay clear, I always knew
She’d be with you

She fell for you when she was seventeen
She always knew she’d be your queen

She couldn't look me in the eye
When she came by to say good bye
Packed a few things,
Took off our rings
And now I know the reason why
Track Name: The truth and the lie
I've known her kind for years
The kind who brings you tears
At first they talk nice
Then they turn cold as ice
yeah I've known her kind for years

She says I drink way too many beers
She brings life to all my fears
Caught her once or twice
Kissing with the wrong guys
Yes she says I drink way too many beers

The truth is sometimes found in the damnedest place
The lie is I don’t wanna see her face
The lie is she’ll come back to me one day
The truth is I want her to stay

I’ve known her kind for years
The kind that’s always shifting gears
At first they seem worth the price
Then they get you in a vise
Track Name: Pretty good day
Tell me again bout your sorrow
Tell me how there’s no tomorrow
There’s pain we receive and there’s pain we create
And I do believe you opened the floodgate

Tell me again about justice
Tell me bout your busted compass
There’s time when we grieve we hardly see straight
But I do believe that such is not your fate

You love to complain bout every little thing
There’s no hardship that your life doesn’t bring
If that’s the worst that happened today
Let me tell you friend, that’s a pretty good day

Tell me again about the hangnails
Tell me bout all the gory details
No you can’t conceive not providing an update
But I do believe you’re just a dumbass primate

You love to complain bout every little thing
There’s no hardship that your life doesn’t bring
If that’s the worst that happened today
Let me tell you friend, that’s a pretty good day

You don’t feel compassion from the people round you
But your pain is real, if only they knew
What else is a poor attention whore to do
Quick let’s think of issue all shiny and new
Track Name: The circus left town
The circus left town
The world is gray again
There’s no one around
To tell me where and when

My heart will calm down
And listen to my brain
My feet on the grown
This ain’t no storm it’s just a little bit of rain

The circus left town
They just packed up and then
They faded in the background
I don’t if or when

I miss the tastes, the sounds, the smells
I miss the Sunday morning bells
I miss the times when we were one
The happiness we can’t outrun
Track Name: Don't rush
Don’t rush too far away from your past
Today ain’t your day but it won’t be your last
Give it a chance to turn out right
Don’t rush too far away from the light

Don’t rush too far away from your past
Tomorrow’s great but why live so fast
Son take a load off, and sit tight
Don’t rush too far away from the light

The sun up in the sky is there
To tell that someone once did care
Enough to give you life

The woman in your past I swear
Is still in love with you somewhere
Enough to wanna be your wife

Don’t rush too far away from your past
Look up the sky’s not overcast
Today’s not a good day to fight
Don’t rush too far away from the light
Track Name: Conversations
Conversations she wants no part of
She’ll just turn around and leave the room
Conversations bout our love
She’ll just leave me there to curse and fume

Conversations too boring
She’ll just go right on about her life
Conversations bout a diamond ring
She’ll say Just make me your wife

Conversations we don’t need
It’s like writing letters she won’t read
Conversations best ignored
Some lands are better unexplored
Conversations

Conversations bout the weather
She’ll just start reading the Good Book
Conversations bout Did you ever
Are fair to overlook
Track Name: These are the days
I got news for you
What you think is true
In the back of your garbage brain
It's a pile of poo
It's the side of you
That is born of fear and pain

My jazz is dark but it hits the mark
And it makes you feel ill at ease
My eyes are blue like the sky above you
And they call me cool breeze

These are the days when we should think of simpler ways
These are the days that should set our hearts ablaze
These are the days

Slinging drinks While on the brinks
Of death and poverty
Apes throw shit and my wrists are slit
And my blood is finally free

You're just another man who thinks he can
Vote for Light and Hope
Find a good tree, trust gravity
And I'll hand you a rope

You say I'm wrong that my words are strong
But my heart is MIA
I've lived too long to sing your song
And my heart's got things to say
Track Name: We got one more
We got one more night
We got one more night
Tomorrow may take flight, babe
And we got one more night

We got one more kiss
We got one more kiss
Tomorrow may not bring us bliss, babe
We got one more kiss

We don’t know what’s on tap
Hope may be a trap
We know we have right now
Let’s make it count somehow

We got one more hug
We got one more hug
Let’s get nice and snug, babe
We got one more hug

Don’t wanna be that guy
Who thinks that love might die
But I don’t wanna take for granted
The Love I always wanted

We got one more smile
We got one more smile
Let’s make it worthwhile, babe
We got one more smile

We don’t know what’s on tap
Hope may be a trap
We know we have right now
Let’s make it count somehow
Track Name: The light of the soul
The light of the soul lasts forever
The stars that we stole don’t shine any brighter
The tears of a child they pour from the heart
The wider she smiled the farther we’re apart
I know there’s a way
There will come a day

The light of the soul lasts forever
But dark is the hole when you say you will never
Let your love run wild, let your feelings depart
Your joy is exiled like ruined from the start
I know there’s a way
There will come a day

There will come a day
When you will say
Now I see the light
Your love shines to bright

The light of the soul lasts forever
Your life as a whole is light as a feather
Your memories are gone your feelings are raw
The war is not won by following the law

I know there’s a way
There will come a day

There will come a day
When you will say
Now I see the light
Your love shines to bright
