Somewhere New To Fly Don’t make sense living the same routine Don’t make sense, babe, living the same routine How much longer ’til I can live my dream? Afraid to call it like it is. Afraid to twist the knife. Afraid to call it like it is. Afraid to twist the knife. From the morning to the night well I don’t understand my life She’s name checking me but I don’t even know who I am She’s name checking me but I don’t even know who I am I’m looking at a long lost hallway like a long lost friend She doesn’t care if I don’t care anymore She doesn’t care if I don’t care anymore Well just living out our days pretending we’re shut down and poor I might lose this I might run out on a whim Well I might lose this I might run out on a whim Well when people are unwise there’s no stopping them Rhythm’s in the soul and Johnny Cash walked the line. Rhythm’s in the soul and Johnny Cash walked the line. I might skip a beat before I get what’s really mine. Well you have a right to live and baby you have a right to die Well you have a right to live and baby you’ve got a right to die When you’re out of the way baby there’ll be somewhere new to fly.

Her Name Is Shaena Caviar on a plane to Hollywood Gotta write a song and it won’t take long and this song had better be good. Gotta write a song and it won’t take long. Her name is Shaena. Oh yeah, her name is Shaena. I don’t even know how to spell her name right (Shaena Shaena Caviar) Is it an “E” before and “A” or an “S” before an “H” Her name is Shaena The plane might be delayed but I only have to play this song for Shaena Oh yeah, her name is Shaena. What am I gonna do? I really am in a jam My head is like a zoo My guitar is in my hand Her name is Shaena. Oh yeah, her name is Shaena. Her name is Shaena What am I trying to prove? The plane arrives and I’ve got butterflies in my stomach Is this really true how far I really flew to see my Shaena Singing this song for Shaena. What am I gonna do? I really am in a jam My head is like a zoo My guitar is in my hand Her name is Shaena. Oh yeah, her name is Shaena. Her name is Shaena What am I trying to prove? Her name is Shaena What am I trying to prove?

Dirty Cars and Cheap Guitars Well I got no money honey but I sure got my fill well I ain’t poor I just wanted too much I was a walking talking money till Don’t hate my way of living well I’m living it up tonight with dirty cars and cheap guitars future’s looking bright. (Chorus) Dirty cars and cheap guitars Dirty cars and cheap guitars Dirty cars and cheap guitars Dirty cars and cheap guitars Dirty cars and cheap guitars Future’s looking bright.

(Chorus)

Honky Tonk World Don't want no million dollar woman dreaming of the stars don't want no Hollywood money in some cocaine bar everybody I'm meeting is the wrong kind of girl it's just me and my banjo in my honky tonk world. I've got the blues before sunrise until the afternoon I got me a second fiddle I'm getting good at the tune I ain't got any money I ain't no duke of earl it's just me and my banjo in my honky tonk world. I'd run in the streets, baby screaming out your name 'cause you all gonna miss me I'm moving on again You want your rules and religions I want my indecision I want to call out a square dance in my honky tonk world.

Part Of A New Crowd Beach in L.A. Wind in her hair she’s part of a new crowd she’s going somewhere nobody wanted her she tried so hard I’m gonna miss her in my old backyard in my old backyard Well she asked me what I thought of her ring then she skated away when I didn’t say anything I thought she was beautiful not that stone she won’t be the same not anymore not the same girl anymore I said, “Stay don’t waste your time! People who don’t know you are people who can’t love you. You’ll always be a friend of mine because the people who don’t know you are the people who can’t understand or love you” I had bought her some good lemonade with my last 50 cents when she skated away she said, “here, have this.. I have an evening date. I have to go and change I have to go and change I have to go and change Beach in L.A. Wind in her hair she’s part of a new crowd she’s going somewhere nobody wanted her she tried so hard I’m gonna miss her in my old backyard in my old backyard

Masters Of Time When it comes to people it’s the blues that ain’t no fun When it comes to people it’s the blues that sure ain’t no fun Oh if I’m such a bad guy how come they never hear me badmouth anyone? Some folks just jealous they’ve got nothing better to do some folks are just jealous they’ve got nothing better to do leave me dead in the water staying afloat just for you Sometimes I want the answers before I make the miles We’re tired of the future we want the past let us be masters of time Rigid things break some of my lovers have died Life was a long Monday so they decided to leave Tuesday behind Life ain’t getting longer wouldn’t you be stronger clearing your mind? Sometimes I want the answers before I make the miles We’re tired of the future we want the past let us be masters of time When it comes to people it’s the blues that ain’t no fun When it comes to people the blues they say ain’t no fun Oh if I’m such a bad guy how come they never hear me badmouth anyone? Sometimes I want the answers before I make the miles We’re tired of the future we want the past let us be masters of time

Music In My Heart When it comes to being free I put music in my heart music in my heart When it comes to being me I put music in my heart music in my heart oh yeah. It’s on the runway but it doesn’t fly You won’t make it baby numbers don’t lie I’ve been writing endings ever since the start thank God you care baby for the music in my heart. When it comes to being free I put music in my heart music in my heart When it comes to being me I put music in my heart music in my heart oh yeah. I’m done with forgiveness and excruciating loneliness My heart as big as my sorrow I will find a new tomorrow When it comes to being free I put music in my heart music in my heart When it comes to being me I put music in my heart music in my heart oh yeah. Another day away from the grave I have music in my heart music in my heart Life ain’t getting longer but you might as well be stronger music in your heart music in your heart. oh yeah.

The Darkness Needs The Dawn You see me out in war paint knowing nothing's going to fade tired of thinking nothing’s amiss just because we’ve got it made Lots of people on the first step of some long journey we’ve been on if we can’t wait for mercy the darkness needs the dawn. Hey, I know you’re unhappy Hey I’m unhappy too. Difference is I see no use in living in the blue. Hope is not a strategy Despair is not a pawn As long as there’s a future, babe the darkness needs the dawn Lots of people on the first step of some long journey we’ve been on if we can’t wait for mercy the darkness needs the dawn. Don’t pretend to try by calling me honey the only thing greed makes has got to rhyme well with money. I’d love to be flaky babe but I’d starve before too long See you when I see you the darkness needs the dawn. Hope is not a strategy Despair is not a pawn As long as there’s a future, babe the darkness needs the dawn

Summer Time 03:46
Summer Time Looking for looking for looking for looking for a meaning running around crashing down the golden mystic dreams can be deceiving Oooh can't bleed as you will Oooh I'm believing you still (chorus) In the summer time summer time summer time in the summer time summer time summer time cool my feet in the water this is my dream to follow you to follow you while you follow me running down that hillside sun in our eyes in the summer time summer time summer time. Making time killing time and limes with tequila in the sun laughing at the devils and all his children on the run Oooh can't bleed as you will Oooh I'm believing you still (chorus x2) Cool my feet in the water this is my dream.
