Track Name: Something Left To Give
Nothing is nothing
but I'm still around
Not trying to get older
Buried alive in your ground
I've still got something left to give
I've still got something left to give

Bottom of the barrel
and top of the line
If somebody matters
won't you show them a sign?
I've still got something left to give
I've still got something left to give

I had a reason to give
but I gave it away
I've given up on dreaming
Glory runs astray.

Just reaching out
You don't have to care
Anywhere else you're looking
there's a party over there
I've still got something left to give
I've still got something left to give

Life's like a song
you choose what chords you play
and if nobody listens
I guess you're on your way
I've still got something left to give
I've still got something left to give

I felt my heart tonight
when you said hello
my apathy returned
where did you go?

As you get older
regrets get big as tears
The longer you're around
the more you disappear
I've still got something left to give
I've still got something left to give

The world rages on
to have something to show
I'm gonna die
and nobody's gonna know
I've still got something left to give
I've still got something left to give
Track Name: Waving My Heart Goodbye
I wish I'd hear from you today
Will there be tears behind your eyes?
All I see is a lone train against the sky
There's you waving my heart goodbye

I gave you my heart but I'm taking it back
You're just a fast engine on another track
Your heart's on fire and you're picking up speed.
Who am I fooling with my locomotive dream?

I wish I'd hear from you today
Will there be tears behind your eyes?
All I see is a lone train against the sky
There's you waving my heart goodbye

You're a hot little number
not the only one
There could be lots of switching 'til my main line comes
You're the only one who could take the longest mile
I haven't seen you around for a while.

I wish I'd hear from you today
Will there be tears behind your eyes?
All I see is a lone train against the sky
There's you waving my heart goodbye
Track Name: After The Sunset Ends
Love is a beautiful illusion
Love is as soft as dreams
and as welcomed as tears
like the tightrope in the wind
up over the clouds
after the sunset ends
the long night may let you down

and the past is a preacher
with a broken spirit
the future's his canvas
he'll make sure that you fear it
like the tightrope in the wind
up over the clouds
after the sunset ends
the long night may let you down

So go on in the world
the right life will find you
where no meddler will go
and no lover will quit
may you fly with the truth
trust in the kiss
when you're gone from a lover
you will be missed

Love is a beautiful illusion
Love is as soft as dreams
and as welcomed as tears
like the tightrope in the wind
up over the clouds
after the sunset ends
the long night may let you down
the long night may let you down
the long night may let you down
the long night may let you down
the long night may let you down
Track Name: Who Gets To Break A Heart Tonight?
You healed me with a promise and now I'm left to die
It ain't a big deal for you because you've got some other guy
but when you're in my arms again and he's nowhere in sight
let's see who gets to break a heart tonight?

You've got yourself a story that nobody'd want to tell
You say you're good at talking you know it all too well
Well I'll tell you a story of how my heart once burned bright
let's see who gets to break a heart tonight.

You've got all this authority even though you don't have faith.
Do you keep making excuses because there's something left to gain?

Well it's time big girl to make your choice and take your stand
you can't go back to high school and hope we'll understand
you're a missle on your way here
conversation can't be light
let's see who gets to break a heart tonight

I can see what this will turn into before I even take a bite
let's see who gets to break your heart tonight.
Track Name: She Will Love You Until You Die
She's got a new heart written on her
you can feel it when she hovers by
but it's all good says the wise man
she will love you until you die

she won't run away for too long
and she won't ever say goodbye
the money's in her spirit
she will love you until you die

you can mess around on her
fill her golden heart with your lie
she'll be gold until you're smiling
she will love you until you die

you might survive your Pisces
while the heart thieves wander by
you've got her in your pocket
she will love you until you die

She's got a life written on her
you can feel it when she hovers by
Track Name: The Open Door
You won't mean a thing
anymore
anymore
down the line

you had your time
changed your mind
I have closed the open door

You won't mean a thing
anymore
anymore
down the line

you had your time
changed your mind
I have closed the open door

Manitoba summer sun
everyone is getting high
getting by

might as well be night
out of sight
windchill minus 49

You won't mean a thing
anymore
anymore
down the line

you had your time
changed your mind
I have closed the open door

You won't mean a thing
anymore
anymore
down the line

you had your time
changed your mind
I have closed the open door
Track Name: All The Reasons (Ain't Turning Back)
All the shadows were there beneath all these days we've shared
we see no way out even if we wind up somewhere
you ask me to answer "how can we clear this air"
and face the fears you don't face
your fears are everywhere

all the reasons I fell for you still exist in this song
like the chords and the feelings left to wind up where they belong
I'm taking the high road
and hope I don't slip through these cracks
the wrong track was easy
the right track ain't turning back

doomed to be lucky
lady luck with a catch
there's always something
to release us and set us back
you know there's no "us"
there's no us in this anymore
all the reasons you fell in with me fell out the door

all the reasons I fell for you still exist in this song
like the chords and the feelings left to wind up where they belong
I'm taking the high road
and hope I don't trip through these cracks
the wrong track was easy
the right track ain't turning back

I've looked to hard for love in this one horse town
money ain't tight
set up for setting down
you came along it's love that my heart can't afford
because you don't know yourself
who am I suffering for?

all the reasons I fell for you still exist in this song
like the chords and the feelings left to wind up where they belong
I'm taking the high road
and hope I don't slip through the cracks
the wrong track was easy
the right track ain't turning back

All the shadows were there beneath all these days we shared.
Track Name: A Life To Survive
You're going or staying
I don't know
I guess I'll stay where you blow
You've got time
I've got time
I want to know
will our life survive?

How many days
how many nights
must you say what ain't right?
money will come
money will go
we all want to know
will our life survive?

You want to know what's in your life
going by
you know that
you want to know what's in my life
you want to know what's in my life
the past you're afraid of.

It's a mudslide where you're gone
it's the flood that comes for your home
true the carpet ain't glued down under you
you want an answer to the questions of your life.
you want an answer to the questions in your life.

River's gonna flood again
you're bound to lose your someday friend
you're gonna hurt
you're gonna cry
to make sense out of life
Track Name: Only Love Knows
Only love knows
Only love knows

she's been looking on the run and justifying
there's been seeds of doubt blooming long ago
I've walked into a war of no satisfying
and there's lives exposed
connections flying low

she's dreamed of me until those fateful evenings
and days of bliss were stranded around her lies
and as much energy as she's spent in her deceiving
she hasn't gotten around to his goodbye

only love knows where uncertainty is going
only love knows why I pray
only love knows this way that I'm walking
only love knows
why I drift astray

She's given herself no chance to stop and talk now
to remind her of all the words she once did say
easier to break the new heart on the block
than the old heart that has been pushing her away
it was all too convenient and perfect
now I must decide what life I'll lead
challenges outline every verdict
just choose between the wounds from which I'll bleed

only love knows where uncertainty is going
only love knows why I pray
only love knows this way that I'm walking
only love knows
why I drift astray

She's gonna drive me crazy and I know it
I can't believe what I've put myself into
I love her and now I'm damned to show it
she's with this man we know will not be true
and yet I'm just a scapegoat for delusion
and a man who has caused some trouble to roll on through
you can dress a story in illusion
to forget ever there was truth in what you do.

only love knows where uncertainty is going
only love knows why I pray
only love knows this way that I'm walking
only love knows
why I drift astray
Track Name: The Story Of A Life
I don't want to be your next broken home
I long to be the hand you hold
long after life is gone from your eyes
when the cost is felt in those goodbyes
and all the playboys and their lies are all long gone
and their promises no longer echo on
to give you comfort with you by my side
will give meaning to the story of a life.

Seems there's nothing now that I can control
I'm left here helpless on this open road
Was your love just a fleeting kiss?
Is there anyway to hold onto this?
You were so warm and now you've been so cold
must be some lie that somebody's told
I don't deserve this love that's died
is this the lesson for a story of a life?

You've shown me love that changed a life
raised the bar and shattered my eyes
there's been glimmers of a madman going blind
still nothing like this hell I'll leave behind
you're laughter heals my light when I'm alone
you comfort me with your heart and your soul
put it in park, babe, I will let you drive
down the road to a story of a life.
Track Name: No Time Alone
We will dream to walk again
further on
the open road
we'll catch these eyes and dreams
and feel the heart beyond our own

we'll not part paths for too long
there will be songs
to take us home
and we'll take the hard road on
and we'll pass no time alone

we can be far apart
and no the dream is realized
I never lived back in the times
before I met your eyes

when three made a crowd
we yearned to be on our own
and we'll take no prisoners here
and we'll pass no time alone

she runs soft through the deep sands
on arroyo grande's shore
she will pick one more flower down
while the sunset cries for more

and I'm longing for you now
more than ever before
we'll take that hard road on
and we'll pass no time alone
