Track Name: Deal With The Devil
You've got yourself a guitar, but you can't sing or play
Thinking to yourself man there has got to be an easier way
You've played for months you've played for years but still no avail
Starting to think it might be time to make
A deal with the devil

You made a deal with the devil
You made a deal with the devil

Headed down to the crossroads to meet a man at night
He'll be all dressed in black but you don't look him in the eye
You hand him your guitar and he'll tune it right for you
Take a swig from his flask and now you're singing in every tune

You made a deal with the devil
You made a deal with the devil

Now you're getting older son and you just wanna live
But you sold your soul to the devil and he takes what is his
You've only got about ten years or so
You better go on get out get on the road

You made a deal with the devil
You made a deal with the devil

Headed down to the crossroads to meet a man at night
He'll be all dressed in black but you don't look him in the eye
You hand him your guitar and hell tune it right for you
Take a swig from his flask and now your singing in every tune

You made a deal with the devil
You made a deal with the devil

Now you're getting older son and you just wanna live
But you sold your soul to the devil and he takes what is his
Don't try to run don't try to hide he's not a mortal man
Armed to the teeth I know you'll try and make one last stand

To save your soul from the devil
You sold your soul to the devil

Headed down to the crossroads with a man at your side
Well he's all dressed in black but you don't dare look him in the eye
Cause he's got your guitar that he tuned right for you
This time he'll take your soul and there's nothing that you can do

You made a deal with the devil
You made a deal with the devil
Track Name: Not So Super Hero
Where have all your friends gone
Why don't they need you now
Broken down and defeated
You must protect this town
Dust off the rubble
Retie your boots
The city is burning
None left to lose

It's not that super being a superhero
It's not like the movies and its nothing like the tv show
its not that super being a superhero
Sometimes you win, but most of the times you won't

No one to relate to
How can you truly love
Someone whose not immortal
They'll die soon enough
You can't save them
But you'll still try
As long as you can breath
You'll keep them alive

It's not that super being a superhero
It's not like the movies and its nothing like the tv show
It's not that super being a superhero

Sometimes you win
Sometimes you don't
Sometimes you fall
Sometimes you float
The city will burn and it will rebuild
They'll cast you out to live in your own filth

It's not that super being a superhero
It's not like the movies and it's nothing like the tv show
It's not that super being a superhero
Sometimes you win, but most of the times you won't
Sometimes you win, but most of the times you don't
Track Name: Moving On
You broke my heart when you left me
We broke apart when you moved Tennessee
I came down to see you whenever I had the chance
But distance made you weak and you gave up on romance

Baby please come down from your high horse
Cause my voice is growing coarse from yelling at the top of my lungs

I know I barely made the grade
I gave you all of me and you threw it all away
I know I barely made the call
You held my heart in your hands and you let it fall

Baby please come down from your high horse
Cause my voice is growing coarse from yelling at the top of my lungs

We've had our troubles in the past
But how long do you think those troubles of ours will last
I lie awake at night just staring at the phone
When I know damn well that you've moved on

Baby please come down from your high horse
Cause my voice is growing coarse from yelling at the top of my lungs
Track Name: Westward Ho
Well I hear there's money
To be made out west
I've packed by bags
And double checked my list
One check for shoes the other for some gold

Well I'm just a vagrant now
A passerby
I made a stop in a town
Cause I was short on supply
Well the shop owner had a few words to say to me

He said
If you're headed out west son
The wells run dry and the gold is gone
And if you plan on sticking around
For long
For long
Well I hope you're pretty good with a gun

Well in this small town
There's one saloon
The sun hangs the highest
When it's ten paces past noon
Well all the good girls and boys know what to do

I was on my way
When I heard a shout
Two men tumbled out the bar
Another man yelled look out
He's another one of them gold chasing fools

He said
If you're headed out west son
The wells run dry and the gold is gone
And if you plan on sticking around
For long
For long
Well I hope you're pretty good with a gun

Well three months later
I made it to the coast
No money in my pocket
But I'm standing on gold
I killed for this land
Blood on my hands
I guess they found out
I'm pretty good with a gun

But now I'm on the run
I follow the morning sun
Got gold and moved on
So I guess this is so long

Oh and if you're headed out west son
The wells run dry and I'm long gone
I made my fortune with a loaded gun
And escaped with the setting sun
Track Name: Hey Little Baby
Hey little baby won't you come with me
I'll show you a good time
I'll take you all around the town
You won't spend a single dime

Hey little baby won't you come with me
I will spark your interests
I'll tell you everything that you need to hear
You can rest your head upon my chest

Woah, yeah

Hey little baby won't you come with me
I'll show you a good time
I'll take you all around the world
If you're not afraid to fly

Hey little baby won't you come with me
Introduce you to my family
They'll tell you everything that you need to hear
Wipe your eyes of those tears

Woah, yeah

Hey little baby won't you marry me
We'll just live the good life
I'll be honest and true faithful to you
If you let me call you my wife

Hey little baby we can settle down
Have some kids together
They'll have your eyes and pretty smiles
What could be better

Woah, yeah

Baby once we settle down and are finally able to breath
We can sit on the front porch listen to rain drops
You and I will sing, we'll sing

Woah, yeah

All this could be possible, but we may never know
Unless I get the courage to say hello
Track Name: Drift | Float
Hello you how was your day
Mine was just fine
I took a walk down by the water
To watch the ships go by
I laid down in the sand
As the tied rolled on in
The sunset washed over me
As I began to

Drift and float away
Off into a new yesterday
I'll float out to sea
Let the tide wash over me

See what I can and do what I must
Live long or die young, but never give up
Laugh while I can cause when the weather gets rough
I'll find another way and never give up

The storm is falling down on me
I'm just floating comfortably
The storm is falling down on me
I will taken by the sea
If I wash ashore
I'll be tattered and battered
If I was ashore
I'll be broken and bruised

As I drift and float away
Off into a new yesterday
I'll float out to sea
Let the tide wash over me

See what I can and do what I must
Live long or die young, but never give up
Laugh while I can cause when the weather gets rough
I'll find another way and never give up
Track Name: Luke 23
The sun was hot my harvest thin
Food for my family drove me in
People filled the streets all standing still
Say three poor men marching towards the hill

Well I'm just a farm boy what do you ask of me
Forced from the line to help this man get off his knees
Well I'm just a farm boy what do you ask of me
When falling three times is three too many

Made our way to the top of the hill I saw something in this man
He forgave all as he passed by all of them condemn
What could this man have done to be treated so horribly
I'll lend a helping hand that's what he'd do for me

Well I'm just a farm boy what do you ask of me
Forced from the line to help this man get off his knees
Well I'm just a farm boy what do you ask of me
When falling three times is three too many

I watched your life be taken away
I watched your life be taken away
I watched your life be taken away
And still you say
Father forgive they know not what they do
You say
Father forgive they know not what they do
You say
Father forgive they know not what they do

Well I'm just a farm boy what do you ask of me
Forced from the line to help this man get off his knees
Well I'm just a farm boy what do you ask of me
When falling three times is three too many
Track Name: What's The Mata With California
You tied the knot in Indiana
Before the storm just minutes away
And I didn't have it in me to tell you
They say rain is good on a wedding day

Oh am I the one who's really gone
Now that you're out living under the sun
Oh am I the one who's truly alone
You moved out west and made it your home

Now you're living out in cali-forn-i-a
Vacationing for real in sweet Palm Springs
I'll call you when I have the chance to
I've always enjoyed your company

Oh am I the one who's really gone
Now that you're out living under the sun
Oh am I the one who's truly alone
You moved out west and made it your home

Oh am I the one who's truly lost
I've dotted my eyes and my fingers are crossed
Oh am I the one who's truly afraid
I'll close my eyes and picture you in the shade

So enjoy your time out in California
I hope you're doing fine out there
Maybe someday Mike and I will join you
For some of that sweet California air

Oh am I the one who's really gone
Now that you're out living under the sun
Oh am I the one who's truly alone
You moved out west and made it your home
Track Name: Why Can't I
All the people that I know are locked inside themselves
I can't help them all for I am just myself
So many of my friends are down and out these days
Caged in and captured by the limits that they made
And I wonder

Why's the sun follow me around
When you get chased down by darkened clouds
Why are colors so damn bright
When all you see is black and white
Why is everything easy for me
When you get stressed out by the simplest things
Why does sleep come so naturally
When you lay down at night and you just can't dream

Why can't I
Why can't I
Help you dream
Why can't I
Why can't I

When everything around you is crumbling down
I'll find the silver line in this old broken town
When everything's a bummer and you hate the life you live
I'll take a deep breath and feel the warmth upon my skin
And wonder

Why's the sun follow me around
When you get chased down by darkened clouds
Why are colors so damn bright
When all you see is black and white
Why is everything easy for me
When you get stressed out by the simplest things
Why does sleep come so naturally
When you lay down at night and you just can't dream

Why can't I
Why can't I
Help you dream
Why can't I
Why can't I

Sometimes you pick yourself up dust yourself off
Only to be taken down again
I'll be close by to be helpful if you ever need a helping hand
I don't know what it is like to be living in your shoes
When I see a rain cloud in the distance all I can do is think of

Why's the sun follow me around
When you get chased own by darkened clouds
Why are colors so damn bright
When all you see is black and white
Why is everything easy for me
When you get stressed out by the simplest things
Why does sleep come so naturally
When you lay down at night and you just can't dream
Track Name: Uncomplicated
Sometimes life can get you down in the dumps
Find out how to turn things around and get up
A glimmer of light a glimmer of hope oh it shines
In the darkest corners in the darkest times

It makes me wonder
It makes me think
That life's a whole lot easier than we make it out to be
It makes me wonder
It makes me think
That there's so much more worth fighting for than I can perceive

Why can't we just keep things simple
Why can't we just keep things simple
Why can't we just be uncomplicated

A river only flows one way to the ocean
Just gotta go with the flow my emotion
Sure there's signs of trouble ahead don't be scared
We'll start to worry when we get there

It makes me wonder
It makes me think
That life's a whole lot easier than we make it out to be
It makes me wonder
It makes me think
That there's so much more worth fighting for than I can perceive

Why can't we just keep things simple
Why can't we just keep things simple
Why can't we just be uncomplicated
Track Name: Get Over It
Hey what're you still doing in bed
It's twelve o'clock and you're well rested
Hey what are you still doing here
Don't you dare waste another year
Don't you dare waste another year

Why don't you open your mind and stop living with your heart
You've been falling in love, but maybe you've fallen too far
Why don't you open your eyes and start looking around
You can't see where you're going if you're always looking down

The day is yours for the taking
You better take all of it
When the sun goes down you lie awake at night
Trapped in your sleeplessness
Trapped in your sleeplessness

Why don't you open your mind and stop living with your heart
You've been falling in love, but maybe you've fallen too far
Why don't you open your eyes and start looking around
You can't see where you're going if you're always looking down

I know your life's been rearranged
You've lost sight of the simple things
You think that it's all gone to shit
You've gotta get up and get over it
You've gotta get up and get over it

Why don't you open your mind and stop living with your heart
You've been falling in love, but maybe you've fallen too far
Why don't you open your eyes and start looking around
You can't see where you're going if you're always looking down
Always looking down
Track Name: Live Your Life
Callus on my fingertips
Working hard for petty tips
I'm not a man made to be still
I've got holes in the soles of my leather shoes
I gave it all I've got nothing to lose
You can break my bones but won't break will

I will keep on walking and singing my songs
One step at a time and moving along
Living life to the rhythm and words you won't go wrong
Live your life song

Wherever the road may lead me
I'll smile at the people that see me
Say hello to the friends I haven't made yet
I'll keep courage and kindness close to my heart
Carry the burden on this guitar
Won't wait on wishes and I won't forget

I bet I'll keep on walking and singing my songs
One step at a time and moving along
Living life to the rhythm and words you won't go wrong
Live your life song
