Track Name: Summer
Fireworks up in the sky
Fourth of July
Catnap in the sun
Till the day is done
Stayin’ up until three
‘Cause there’s nowhere to be
Smokin’ in the shade
Drinkin’ lemonade

Got a friend by my side
Drivin’ all night
Nothin’ to do
Nothin’ to lose
Middle of June
Take a bite of the moon
Summer is here

Ice cream cones in the park
After dark
Bonfires at the beach
In the midnight heat

Got a friend by my side
Drivin’ all night
Nothin’ to do
Nothin’ to lose
Middle of June
Take a bite of the moon
Summer is here

Trees wavin’ all of their leaves
In the summer breeze
Playin’ my guitar
In the backyard

Got a friend by my side
Drivin’ all night
Nothin’ to do
Nothin’ to lose
Middle of June
Take a bite of the moon
Summer is here
Drinkin’ cheap wine
Soakin’ up sunshine
Summer, good friend,
Don’t let this end

(Naa’s)

Fireworks up in the sky
Fourth of July
Catnap in the sun
Till the day is done

La la la…..
Track Name: Someone Got the King
Is it good
is it bad
baby I don’t know

Got no ace
up my sleeve
so I’ve got to fold

Lights so harsh
in this place
I can’t see a thing

Turn around
and you’re gone
Someone got the king

I’ve always worn my heart on my sleeve
But you weren’t brave enough to believe
O what a tangled web we weave, yeah

S-S-Stay out of here

Got a cool-
er packed up
in my truck

Got my suit-
case, my pride
and twenty bucks

I’ve always worn my heart on my sleeve
But you weren’t brave enough to believe
O what a tangled web we weave, yeah

I-I-I’m out of here

And there’s nothin’ to say
And there’s nothin’ to do
You got your way
And I’m through with you

Yeah.
Track Name: Backtrack
Baby gotta backtrack
You’ve got a stack of regrets a mile high
Baby gotta turn around
huh?
Didn’t see that dead end comin’
did ya?

Too bad baby
the bed’s all made
now all you gotta do
is keep on lyin’.
It shouldn’t be hard
You’ve mastered the art

Baby gotta backtrack
make up for what you lack if you can
Baby gotta make it work
huh?
Don’t want to seem like you’ve
made a mistake

So sad baby
the cake’s all made
but you can’t eat it too
so keep on lyin’
It shouldn’t be hard
You’ve mastered the art

Baby gotta backtrack
You got a stack of regrets a mile high
Baby gotta turn around
huh?
Didn’t see that dead end comin’
did ya?

Too bad baby
the bed’s all made
now all you gotta do
is keep on lyin’
It shouldn’t be hard
You’ve mastered the art

Too bad baby.
Track Name: Back to Colorado
Sometimes we just get a feelin’
that it’s time to go
Pack our bags and fill our gas tank
then we hit the road

Drivin’ on back to Colorado

Eighteen hours is not that long a
drive when I’m with you
We chose not to buy a ticket
’cause then we’d miss the view

Drivin’ in a mountain’s shadow
Drivin’ on back to Colorado

Our love is just like the Colo-
rado sky, true blue
Everything’s more beautiful when
I see it through you

Passing fields of grazin’ cattle
Drivin’ on back to Colorado

Drivin’ all night
nothin’ but road behind us
nothin’ but road before us
over the mountain pass
we’re here at last, we’re here

Eighteen hours is not that long a
drive when I’m with you
We chose not to buy a ticket
’cause then we’d miss the view

Drivin’ in a mountain’s shadow
Drivin’ on back to Colorado
Passing fields of grazin’ cattle
Drivin’ on back to Colorado
Track Name: Le Petit Chat
Le petit chat
Mon chat
Il est bien
Il est bien
Mon chat

Le petit chat,
Mon chat, marche sur les rues
de Paris de Paris de Paris

Le petit chat
Est marveilleux
Il est jeune
Il a faim
Mon chat

Le petit chat s’arrête au vieux café
Et attend un morceau de gâteau

Comment mon petit chat obtenir ce qu’il veut
Il ne demande pas beaucoup, que trés peu
J’ai beaucoup d’amour, mais pas d’argent
Un chat ne peut pas vivre sur l’amour

Le petit chat
Mon chat
Je l’aime
Je l’aime
Mon chat

Le petit chat,
Mon chat, marche sur les rues
de Paris de Paris de Paris

Le petit chat,
Mon chat, marche sur les rues
de Paris de Paris de Paris
Track Name: Forgive Me
I don’t know why we said all these terrible things
But it’s far too late to take them back
There’s no chance of that
Now we sit silently just waiting for something
To alter the tide, to break the ice,
To save our lives

The rock you throw at me
And the boulder I throw back
Oh, the lack we have for knowing
What will break
The other’s back
Break your back
Break my back

Forgive me
Oh it doesn’t come easy to some and it sure doesn’t come
Easy to me
Can’t you see
Everything’s so much better when we make up our minds to agree

People say never go to sleep when you’re upset
If you have to stay awake all night long
To try to right the wrong
Well it’s late but we haven’t given up yet
No matter how, we’re gonna figure it out
That’s what love’s about

The rock you threw at me
And the boulder I threw back
Oh, the lack we had for knowing
What would break
The other’s back
Break your back
Break my back

Forgive me
Oh it doesn’t come easy to some and it sure doesn’t come
Easy to me
Can’t you see
Everything’s so much better when we make up our minds to agree

It might seem
Like it’s the
End of the world
But you’re still
With me and
I’m still your girl

Forgive me
Oh it doesn’t come easy to some and it sure doesn’t come
Easy to me
Can’t you see
Everything’s so much better when we make up our minds to agree
Track Name: Tell Me, Time
"Where's my girl?
he said out loud to no one,
sitting in his chair.
She’s in a world
that glitters when you’re far
but when you’re close, it’s not there.

Where’s my girl?
He took a sip of his drink,
dialed the telephone.
No answer there,
he wants to hear her voice
but right now he’s alone.

Oh how time
moves away and
you never see it go.
"Tell me, Time,"
he said, "how long has it been?
Are you my friend or foe?"

But what of dreams?
Those silly phantom things
that hide behind your door.
Are they what they seem?
Or are they tricks your eyes play,
shadows on the floor?

Oh how time
moves away and
you never see it go.
"Tell me, Time,"
he said, "how long has it been?
Are you my friend or foe?"

Oh how time
moves away and
you never see it go.
"Tell me, Time,"
he said, "how long has it been?
Are you my friend or foe?"

"Where’s my girl?"
he said out loud to no one,
sitting in his chair.
Track Name: Nothin's Changed
Oh I don't know
How you feel
I just know
I gotta get away from here

I packed my bags
Yesterday
Cleaned out my closet
There’s nothin’ left to say

Oh, Nothin’s changed
Nothin’s changed

Oh when we started
You were a better man
Now things are different
And I’ve done all I can

Oh yes I’m tired
Of waitin’ around
But I ain’t a fool
I won’t let it bring me down

Oh, Nothin’s changed
Nothin’s changed

A million things could’ve been different
You never cared and I guess I’m indifferent now
A million lives are better than this one
The curtain’s closing and it’s time for our final bow

Oh, Nothin’s changed
Nothin’s changed

I closed the door
I locked the latch
I got nothin’ to say to you
I got a plane to catch

Oh I don’t know
How you feel
I just know
I gotta get away from here

Oh, Nothin’s changed
Nothin’s changed
Nothin’s changed
Nothin’s changed
Track Name: Kerosene Lady
Give me a kiss
And I’ll reciprocate
I won’t resist
I’ll take you on a date with me
Wait and see

There’s more than this
To life, you know
No need to worry
No need to take it slow, baby
Wait and see

We’ll go drivin’ too fast
Down old Route 66
We’ll put our foot on the gas and blow by the little towns
Knock ’em down

I know a place we can go
But it’s a quarter past three
You say that you don’t care and neither do I baby
Come over here by me

I used to wonder
If I could ever find
Someone like you
Someone who’d blow my mind, baby
Now I see

I’m on fire
I’m gonna make a scene
You are my match baby
And I’m your kerosene lady
You set me free

We’ll go drivin’ too fast
Down old Route 66
We’ll put our foot on the gas and blow by the little towns
Knock ’em down

I know a place we can go
But it’s a quarter past three
You say that you don’t care and neither do I baby
Come over here by me

It’s gettin’ late
And I’m so sleepy
But what a date
We made history tonight
We saw the light

We’ll meet tomorrow
I’ll knock on your door
We’ll go out driving
Like the night before honey
We’ll see everything

We’ll go drivin’ too fast
Down old Route 66
We’ll put our foot on the gas and blow by the little towns
Knock ’em down

I know a place we can go
But it’s a quarter past three
You say that you don’t care and neither do I baby
’Cause you’re here with me
’Cause you’re here with me
Track Name: You and I
You got your gun
I got mine
We can take this anywhere you want to
They say you’re crazy
So am I
Oh let’s stick together kid
You and I

You got guts boy
I got grace
We’ll take what’s ours from this god-forsaken place
A tiny town
Just made of dirt
It couldn’t hurt
What do you say

Time waits for no one
Wait for us
Wait for us
When death comes a-knockin’
We’ll be long gone
We’ll be long gone
You and I

Nothin’s easy
Nothin’s fair
What life has taken from us we’ll steal back, love
Keep on driving
We’ll go far
We’ll pass the state line in this car
You and I
We’re surrounded
On all sides
But our love is bonafide

My darling Clyde
I’d rather die
I’d rather die
Than leave your side

Time waits for no one
Not for us
Not for us
Now death has come a-knockin’
And we’re long gone
Yes we’re long gone
You and I

You got your gun
I got mine
We can take this anywhere you want to
They say you’re crazy
So am I
Oh let’s stick together kid
You and I
Track Name: For the Sake of a Lion
Unimaginative
passive aggressive
take and never give
that’s no way to live

You don’t hesitate
to leave it up to fate
Well cancel the date
’cause there’s nothin’ left to say

There’s nothin’ left to do
If you had your way
you’d make me walk through fire for you

Liar, liar
pants on fire
Dire, dire
you’re uninspired

You’re over-the-hill
and think you’ve got it still
But you’re just roadkill
next to Jack and Jill

boy, you don’t look so good
You think I won’t but I will
’cause I always knew I would

Just because it’s cold outside
doesn’t mean that it’s snowing
Just because the world knows you
doesn’t mean you’re worth knowing

You got your paycheck
I got a broken neck
Gee, what the heck
You’d better hit the deck

The truth is hard dear but
you’re gonna hear it
I’ve got a winning spirit
and you will learn to fear it

Why don’t you apologize
You left me there to die
with all your little white lies

I got a loaded gun
aimed at you son
It can’t be undone
This ought to be fun

So go and pitch a fit
I hope you choke on it
Your love is non-descript
Your hands are ill-equipped

to hold onto mine
You sacrificed a lamb
for the sake of a lion
Track Name: Oh, California
Standing in the yard
Dresses on a wire
My future lies beyond the clothesline

Rocky Mountain high
You almost touch the sky
My future lies beyond the treeline

Oh, California
City of Angels
Can you save a place for me
I’m too young to give up
Too old to turn back
Will you save a place for me

I said all my goodbyes
Hit I-25
My future’s at the end of these broken yellow lines
Twelve hundred miles to go
But I’m not tired at all
I’m dreaming of that L.A. skyline

Oh, California
City of Angels
Can you save a place for me
I’m too young to give up
Too old to turn back
Will you save a place for me

A tiny apartment
Got a postcard in my hand
I take the time and write a few lines
Then I hike up through those hills
Just to prove it to myself
I’m underneath the Hollywood sign

Oh, California
City of Angels
Can you save a place for me
I’m too young to give up
Too old to turn back
Will you save a place for me
Track Name: The Mistake
I miss you
And your eyelashes full of stars
I dream of you still
In my shadowed bed

Remember when?
Do you?

You are continents away
Your smile is full of dreams
Where is my boat?
Where is my life-jacket(life-jacket)?

The words sneak on to my lips
But I suck them back in
Before they embarass me, embarass me

I love you, don’t you see?
I wait for you, but retreat

I can’t be the only one
I’d rather be lonely than the only one
