VOL. I LYRICS

 

Together 

 

First I find the reason why and then I over simplify 
Figure out a way to make things better 
But, better never comes along and all I find are more sad songs 
Guess I’ll keep on singing them forever 
Forever is a mystery and that is true for you and me 
I wish that we could spend more time together 
Together is the only thing that’s ever made much sense to me 
I love you in a way that can’t be measured 

Well I could write a million songs 
About the things that I’ve done wrong 
I can try and sing about the truth 
Nothing I can say today will make it all go away 
I’m sorry for the things I’ve done to you 

Later on I start to think have I had too much to drink 
Should I sleep or should I keep on talkin’ 
The sun has started coming up and I’m feeling like this empty cup 
I know I shouldn’t drive. I should be walkin’ 

Yeah I could have a thousand drinks 
To wash away the things I’ve done 
But I can’t forget the truth 
Nothing that I drink today will make it all go away 
I’m sorry for the things I’ve done to you 

All the mistakes I’ve made 
Only the price I’ve paid 
Oh, is it all outweighed by the things 
I’ve done and do, loving only you? 

When you fall asleep tonight 
I hope the world would hold you tight 
I wish that we could share this time together 
I know at times I’ve let you down 
And from a window in a different town 
I wonder if your life could be much better 
I’ve thought about this all night long 
That’s why I’m singing this damn song 
And I’ll keep singing it forever 

As I become a better man 
I’ll be there to hold your hand 
It’s simple but it’s true 
For everything that’s gone awry 
I’ll never apologize 
For loving only you 

All the mistakes I’ve made 
Only the price I’ve paid 
Oh, is it all outweighed by the things 
I’ve done and do, loving only you?

 

 

Chasing The Sun 

 

 I don’t want to break my soul 
But if I do I might strike gold 
With that gold maybe I could buy your heart 
With your heart I find love 
With that love I’ll find my soul 
In our souls we know that 
Love’s as good as gold 

I’m chasin the sun 
Out on the run 
Won’t stop til I find you 
Once I’m ridin’ the moon 
I’ll be seein’ you soon 
I’m chasin’ the sun 
Yeah I’m chasin’ you 

I don’t believe when you say you don’t see it 
Do you feel we’ve lost the magic touch? 
I never believe when you say you don’t need it 
This was never just your tragic crutch 
I don’t want to break my soul 
But if I do I might strike gold 
And with that gold maybe I won’t fall apart 

I’m chasin the sun 
Out on the run 
Won’t stop til I find you 
Once I’m ridin’ the moon 
I’ll be seein’ you soon 
Chasin the sun 
Yeah I’m chasin’ you 

The stars will guide me 
Where I want to go 
And when I get there 
I’ll steal back all my gold 
Beyond the edge of everything we know 
The stars will shine for you because you are the gold 

I’m chasin the sun 
Out on the run 
Won’t stop til I find you 
Once I’m riding the moon...yeah! 
Chasin’ the sun 
Out on the run 
Won’t stop til I find you 
Once I’m ridin’ the moon 
I’ll be seeing you soon 
I’m chasin’ the sun 
Yeah I’m chasin’ the sun 
Out on the run 
Won’t stop til I find you 
Once I’m ridin’ the moon 
I’ll be seeing you soon 
I’m chasin’ the sun 
Yeah I’m chasin’ you

 

Sittin’ Still 

 

Baby I love you 
I always have and I always will 
You know I miss you when I’m out on the road and you’re home alone sitting still 
I wouldn't ever go and tell you how to feel 
I’m just trying so hard to give you something real 

When I’m flying high and you’re feeling low 
I’ll send you some flowers and a sweet little note 
I wish you were here right now but babe I’ve gotta hang up the phone 
I can’t wait to get home 

Looking through photos I love that you’re wearing my clothes 
I can’t find my headphones to watch that old video 
That we took on Christmas of the dogs playing in snow 
I miss that feeling of you keeping me warm when it’s so cold 

When I’m flying high and you’re feeling low 
I’ll send you some flowers and a sweet little note 
I wish you were here right now
but babe I’ve gotta hang up the phone 
I can’t wait to get home 

When I get there baby 
I’ll pick you up off the floor 
Throw my bag in the corner 
And hang my hat on the door 
I’ll shower you in my kisses 
And love you all through the night 

 

*sick riff* 

I put my boots back on 
And whisper goodbye 
I’m flying high and you’re feelin’ low 
I’ll leave you some flowers and a sweet little note 
I wish I could stay my love 
I already miss you so 

I’m flying high and you’re feelin’ low 
I gotta go and play a couple more shows 
I wish you were here right now 
Cause babe this shit is getting old 
I can’t wait to get home 
I can’t wait to get home 
I can’t wait to get home

 

 

WORK 

 

I will work for you darlin 
I will fight until my arms are sore 
I’ll keep chasin you 
Til’ my lungs are black and blue 
And you know I’m what you’re lookin’ for 
I can’t say that i’ve been worthy 
And my words may not seem true 
But I’m callin it now an unbreakable vow 
Until our days are through

I will pour into this vessel 
I will drain all that I have 
I’ll replace what I skewed 
When my aperture unglued 
And show you what you’re looking for 

I will work for you darlin’ 
I will fight until my arms are sore 
I’ll keep chasin you 
Til’ my lungs are black and blue 
And you know 
I’m what you’re lookin’ for 

Whatever it takes I know we’ve got it 
And everyone else Can go to hell 
I know one day i’ll say to you 
When our last breath we drew 
It was all worth fighting for 

Oh hear me my love 
Oh hear me my love 
Oh hear me my love 
Oh hear me my love 
Oh hear me my love 
Oh hear me my love 
Oh hear me my love 

I will work for you darlin 
I will fight until my arms are sore 
And I’ll keep chasin’ you 
Til’ my lungs are black and blue 
And you know you’re what i’m lookin’ for

 

Mannequin 

 

You’ll never know how much I love you 
You’ll never know how much I care 
Every day we leave behind us 
Is another day I’m glad we shared 

You know that I am a lonesome soul sometimes 
And I know you’re alright with me being gone 
I feel less like a man 
And more like a mannequin 
And I’m waiting for you 
To bring me to life again 

Days will come when we’re uncertain 
But I'm telling you I have a plan 
I’m gonna put your world upon my shoulders 
So will you put this ring upon your hand 

You know that I am a lonesome soul sometimes 
And I know you’re not alright with me being gone 
I feel less like a man 
And more like a mannequin 
I’m waiting for you 
To bring me to life again 

All I ever wanted was to have you by my side 
All I could ever hope for is a little bit more time 
To feel alive 
To feel alive 
To feel alive 

When my time comes I won’t be ready 
To share with you my last sunset 
If I make my way on up to heaven 
I’ll demand to come to come back down instead 
I would trade in all of my forever 
To live my life with you again

 

All The Time In The World 

 

Fell in love in my very first car 
Who knew life could be so sweet? 
I kissed her face and looked into her eyes 
Right there in my back seat 
And this lonesome loves already ran its course 
But it’s still something special to me 
I ever see her again I’m gonna give her a hug 
And tell her all about where i’ve been 
Years have past and to my surprise 
Her smiles still shining bright 
At the end of the day I hope that she’s okay 
And this song doesn’t make her cry 

I got all the time in the world 
To think about it 
And I, I’m thinking about it still 
I’ve got all the time in the world to forget about it 
And I probably never will 

Now I’m here after running away 
A case of a beer and two packs a day 
It’s not as cold as I make it seem 
I got real good friends taking care of me 
Go to the bar right down the street 
And little Darlin it’s always a treat 
They pour our drinks and only charge us half 
Shake our hands and always make us laugh 

I got all the time in the world 
To think about it 
And I, I’m thinking about it still 
I’ve got all the time in the world to forget about it 
And I probably never will 

Deep in my heart there’s a brand new start 
With a bottle not in my hand 
Who ever knew that it’d be you 
To make me a better man 

I got all the time in the world 
To think about you 
And I, I’m thinking about you still 
I’ve got all the time in the world to forget about you 
I know I  never will 
I got all the time in the world 
To think about you 
And I, I’m thinking about you still 
I’ve got all the time in the world to forget about you 
And I, I know I never will

 

Carrying A Star 

 

Last night I dreamt I was an astronaut 
A moon man so far away 
Consumed by all of this emptiness 
All alone in this place 
A light starts flashing on my radio 
faintly a voice calls out my name 
It says every traveler has felt his share of pain 
But don’t you have a world to save? 

Constantly I am reminded of what I already know 

It’s the simple things 
that keep us moving on 
Takin’ the ones you love 
And holdin em’ in your arms 
It’s making the right choice 
even when it’s hard 
and movin’ through the universe 
Carrying a Star 

Fell asleep with the tv on 
Some nature type of show 
About a man 10,000 years ago 
trying to build his family home 

Constantly I am reminded of what I already know 

It’s the simple things 
that keep us moving on 
It’s the ones you love 
holdin em’ in your arms 
It’s making the right choice 
even when it’s hard 
And movin’ through the universe 
Carrying a star 

Constantly I am reminded of what I already know 

It’s the simple things 
that keep us moving on 
It’s the ones you love 
holdin em’ in your arms 
It’s making the right choice 
even when it’s hard 
And movin’ through the universe 
Yeah it’s movin through the universe 
Yeah it’s movin through the universe 
Carrying a star 
Carrying a star

 

Shadows 

 

Come now open my chest 
And find out just how little that I have left 
I’ll walk with the demons 
Dance with the dogs 
But I’ll never forget 
The love that i’ve lost 

All in all 

I am done hiding in the shadows 
Some damn lyric about choice 
I am done prayin’ to my vampires 
I am finally raising my voice 

I don’t know what the hell I’m supposed to say 
But im screamin’ my lungs right here out anyway 
I’ll repeat the words as long as it takes 
And i’ll spit this bullshit right back in your face 

All in all 

I am done hiding in the shadows 
Some damn lyric about choice 
I am done praying to the vampires 
I am finally raising my voice 

The fire inside of me 
Can’t be controlled anymore 
I’m taking my final steps 
And I’m sealing my fate 

I am finally raising my voice 
I am done hiding in the shadows 
Some damn lyric about choice 
I am done praying with your vampires 
I am finally raising my voice

 

The Ballad Of Young Jones 

 

His daddy was a sailor 
He was never around 
But you could find him every night 
At the only bar in town 
He left the task of raisin’ 
Young Jones to his ma 
And every year on his birthday 
She’d forge his birthday card 
The day he turned sixteen 
He got a hundred dollar bill 
She said this didn’t come from your dad 
And nothin’ ever will 

The Poison in his veins 
Has made him mean and cold 
Don’t you end up 
just like him when you grow old 

Momma moved em to TX 
found herself a good hearted man 
Put Young Jones on the football field 
To keep the bottle out of his hand 
He had a hell of a season 
Gettin scouted by the NFL 
First play of the final game 
He Tripped and tore his ACL 

Jones tried to fill the void 
He climbed into a bottle of pills 
Knocked a couple of women up 
Cause that’s a hole that he could fill 
He fell in love with trouble 
Left the babies home alone 
Chaos is a mean god 
And it led him down amphetamine road 

The Poison’s in his veins 
It makes him mean and cold 
Don’t you end up 
just like him when you grow old 

They Went back to Nebraska 
After mama had her stroke 
two weeks later the good man died 
And took with him all the hope 
Well he left them some money 
Just enough to cause a scene 
That’s when the extended family showed up 
And taught us all the meaning of greed 

Jones was spendin’ like crazy 
To help his momma get around 
But his hungry ass aunts and uncles 
Were trying to bring young jones down 

The poison in their veins has made them mean and cold, 
Don’t you end up just like them when you grow old 
Don’t you end up just like them 
Cause there’s still time, there’s still time 
To save your souls 

Try to escape where you come from 
Don’t forget that it’s easier said than done 
You’ve gotta try to escape where you come from 
Don’t forget that it’s easier, yeah it’s easier said than done 

Is your daddy a failure? 
Well he’s never around 
You can find him every night 
Behind some bars outside of town 
If he calls to hear your voice 
Don’t listen to a single word 
Two generations down 
I’d hate to see you be the third 
God will you give you the cards 
But the devil’s in what you do 
It ain’t about your old man now 
Kids it’s all ‘bout you 

The poison in your name 
It can’t be bought or sold 
Don’t you end up just like them 
Just like them 
Just like them 
When you grow old

 

Tomorrow 

 

Fell from the tower 
Sippin’ on grace 
Pushing all my problems to another day 
I’m getting close on the long way home 

but I might not make it anyway 
Paper piled high coverin’ the door 
my long list of problems from the ceiling to the floor 
Feeling like a Monday, my Sunday chore 
Fell a bit behind then a little bit more 

I’ll deal with tomorrow when it comes 
Whenever it does 
I’ll wake up and live with it then don’t worry my friend 
Time waits for nobody don’t you wait and see 
Tomorrow’s gonna deal with me 

Gonna pull the lever and get what I can take 
Rolling into heaven with a smile on my face 
High five the devil kissin Peter on the cheek 
it’s a four man war with the holy trinity 
Spitfire and I don’t need your plan 
But you know that I could use a little money in my hand 

I’ll deal with tomorrow when it comes 
if ever it does 
I’ll wake up and live with it then don’t worry my friend 
Time waits for nobody don’t you wait and see 
Tomorrow’s gonna deal with me 

I’ll deal with tomorrow when it comes 
if ever it does 
I’ll wake up and live with it then don’t worry my friend 
Time waits for nobody don’t you wait and see 
Tomorrow’s gonna deal with me

 

Times 

 

Theres times when i’m scared 
Times when I’m lonely 
Times when I’m searching for things I don’t have 
Closin’ my eyes waiting to find 
Something to help me get through 

To a time that I know my life could be better 
If I would just face the unknown 
But i’m holding so tight 
And believe me i’ve tried letting go 

Will I ever live up to my own expectations? 
Promises hollow in these empty spaces 
If all of the walls crumbled around me 
Then would I know where to go.. to find… 

A place in my life that’s a little bit better 
Where I won’t feel so alone 
I’ve been holdin’ so tight 
and I won’t regret letting go 

All this time 
Have I wasted my whole damn life? 
Waitin 
All this time 
Have I wasted my whole damn life? 
Waitin 

For the day when it all comes together 
Do I even dare hope 
The despair I live with won’t last forever 
And somehow I make it home?
