Track Name: The Ripple
Things happen to people
Life drops a rock in the pond
We get caught in the ripple
We get caught with the wrong blond

Sometimes you’re at the mercy
Of someone who has none
Sometimes you know you can’t be free
No matter how far you run

You run, you run oh you run
You run but it was over before it begun

Things happen to people
Life’s known to be unkind
In the shadow of the steeple
You can still feel left behind

Sometimes you’re at the mercy
Of people with a gun
Sometimes you hold the key
But they’ve already won

You run, you run oh you run
You run but it was over before it begun

F
And you know in your heart
Am G
That it’s doomed from the start
F
And you feel in your soul
C G
You never were in control
Track Name: Tell me how to
Well it's raining at the beach but I'm still sitting on the sand
My dreams are out of reach but I still wear my wedding band
It’s raining at the beach where you would hold my hand
I rehearse my speech hoping you’ll understand

But I don’t know how to tell you
Two hearts can love anew
Mistakes yes we made a few
But I can’t believe we’re through
Tell me how to

tell your heart we belong
IN a love so strong
In a song we both sing along

Tell your heart of the days
When we’ll invent new ways
To see right through the haze
To turn for now into always

Well it's raining at the beach the sky just opened wide
My dreams still out of reach you’re not sitting by my side
It’s raining at the beach I should go back inside
But I rehearse my speech hoping I won’t be denied

I don’t know how to tell you
Two hearts can love anew
Mistakes yes we made a few
But I can’t believe we’re through
Tell me how to

tell your heart we belong
IN a love so strong
In a song we both sing along

Tell your heart of the days
When we’ll invent new ways
To see right through the haze
To turn for now into always

It’s sunny at the beach I’m sitting on the sand
My dreams are within reach you’re wearing your wedding band
It’s sunny at the beach you’re holding my hand
Track Name: Tequila and Pain
Sometimes you’re out at when it starts
Pouring down rain
Sometimes you’re mixing equal parts
Tequila and pain
And you think of a time when love was in its prime
And your life could still rhyme

Sometimes you run out of gas
In the middle of the night
Sometimes you fly first class
But she’s nowhere in sight
And you think of a time when love was in its prime
And your life could still rhyme

Sometimes you miss her so
But deep down you know
You should just let her go

Sometimes you miss her so much
Her smiles, her touch
You miss her too much

Sometimes your life makes no sense
But you live anyway
It’s all in the past tense
You live for yesterday
And you think of a time when love was in its prime
And your life could still rhyme

A part of you knows
That it’s time to move on
A part of you knows
She’s gonna stay gone
Track Name: Everything's gonna be all right
I thought she came from heaven above
First time lucky in love
An angel with a smile so bright

It’s like God made her just for me
We carved our names in the trunk of a tree
She held my hand said everything’s gonna be all right

Yeah everything’s gonna be all right

Spent my days trying to make our love shine
Building bridges between her heart and mine
I never want to let her out of my sight

In the evening we sit hand in hand
Time spent together is the law of our land
And everything’s gonna be all right

Yeah everything’s gonna be all right

I don’t wanna be a man who forgets
This is not a love on which the sun sets
Track Name: Tag along
Don't know where I'm going and frankly I don't care
There’s no way of knowing never been anywhere
But I’m looking for you
What else can I do
I’m looking for you
But you’re just passing through

I know bad wind is blowing, but I still have a prayer
And when my fears are growing, I live in your nightmare
But I’m looking for you
What else can I do
I’m looking for you
But you’re just passing through

YOu’re just passing through
I know that much is true
And you’re singing your song
Bout a man who did you wrong
Me I just wanna tag along

Well my scars are showing when my skin is bare
This
train keeps a rollin’ life’s not meant to be fare
But I’m looking for you
What else can I do
I’m looking for you
But you’re just passing through

You’re just passing through
I know that much is true
And you’re singing your song
Bout a man who did you wrong
Me I just wanna tag along
