Track Name: Don't Wait
I woke up in Central California
I woke up in someone else's shoes
Mind a little hazy I can barely write my name
Should I even care? Try to find my way?

I found out in lovely San Francisco,
I found out between those golden gates
I set it all in motion when I pulled you on that stage
How could I ever know, that you'd push away

Don't wait for me to come back
Don't wait for me to come back around
Though we drifted far apart, you were always in my heart, but don't wait for me to come back around

I got lost in southern California
I got caught on that sweet sunset strip
Strangers in my corner, with candy and their trick
Do I even dare, oh do I even dare?

Don't wait for me to come back
Don't wait for me to come back around
Though we drifted far apart, you were always in my heart, but don't wait for me to come back around, Back down.

If you're flying high or swinging low
Don't wait for me to come back home
Cuz I've been holding on to you for quite some time
I've been holding on to you, holding on to you

Don't wait for me to come back
Don't wait for me to come back around
Though we drifted far apart, you were always in my heart, but don't wait for me to come back around
Track Name: Make It or Break It
I save, every sigh
to build up my walls oh so high
You crash and burn
I’ll wait and forget all the lessons I’ve learned

When the lights go out
if theres no one else

and I know
We’ll make it or break it
Oh, yeah we all want someone to hold
We’ll make it or break it
I’m not gonna face this alone

I saw
What you wrote
Said all these songs have your soul
Replaced every verse
I thought to myself could love get much worse.

If the light goes out
If there no one else
will I lose myself
No I’ll always be there til the end

and I know
We’ll make it or break it
Oh. yeah we all want someone to hold
We’ll make it or break it
I’m not gonna face this alone

If the light goes out
Well make it or break it
if theres no one else
Ya we all want someone,
Ya we all want someone

If the light goes out
Well make it or break it
if theres no one else
Ya we all want someone
Will I lose myself
Well make it or break it
I'm not gonna face this alone
Track Name: Visions
I washed up on banks of sorrow
smiles and visions, bought and borrowed
wind and waters guide me true
so i can, make my way by the stars

so I kept searching far and lonely.
In my dreams I’d asked if only,
I could be her wildest story
I would write my name on her heart.

Pre.
But then I found
those writings on the wall
were never clear at all
but her song was my northern star.

And she sang
Ohh-h-h
And she sang
Ohh-h-h
And she sang
Oh-h-h
No matter how long,
I will follow her song

Lost my way up north of nowhere
met a man who lived without care
said my son, “go west to find her
and never fear who you are.”

and then you’ll find
Your passion will be sparked
and that fire is your heart
It will burns and it burns til the end.

And I sang
Ohh-h-h
And I sang
Ohh-h-h
And I sang
Oh-h-h
No matter how long,
I will follow her song

And she sang
Ohh-h-h
No matter, no matter how long
I'lll follow her song
No matter how long,
I will follow her song.
Track Name: Light
I was just a wandering soul,
Working through the highs and lows.
I heard a spirit whisper slow,
Drift into the great unknown,
Will anybody see my ghost.

But Oooooh,
I can see the light.
Oooooh
So let me off at the end of the night.
cuz all my friends are giving up,
and I’ve had enough.
Ooooohh
I can feel the weight of a thousand eyes on me.

I began to hear my name
like silence in a hurricane
The chords were rushing through my veins
Like some forgotten border train
takes me to my home again

I wade in darkness
but I can hear you calling, I feel you calling.
As I shut my wanting eyes
said I’d love you til I die.

I can see the light
Oooooh
So let me off at the end of the night.
cuz all my friends are giving up,
and I’ve had enough.
Ooooohh
I can feel the weight of a thousand eyes on me
Track Name: Deep Dark Valley
Theres a deep dark valley that my baby left
goes down deep in my soul
Just a little bit of heaven on a hell bound train
it goes down deep in my soul
Well the last few years, been harder than most
oh I miss my kin and I miss my coast
Theres a deep dark valley that my baby left
goes down deep in my soul

Theres a deep dark valley that my baby left
goes down deep in my soul
When I wandered through the wild I would feel no pain.
but it goes down deep in my soul
cuz truth don’t hurt, if it don’t come clean
Just like the dirt stained soul of every man I've been
Theres a deep dark valley that my baby left
goes down deep in my soul

Theres a deep dark valley that my baby left
goes down deep in my soul
In the middle of the mountain still I hear that voice
it goes down deep in my soul
But I don’t recall the good Lord saying
that a faithful servant never feels no pain
Theres a deep dark valley that my baby left
goes down deep in my soul.
goes down deep in my soul.
goes down deep in my soul.
goes down deep in my soul.
Track Name: Love and War
Ive fallen to whiskey and this I confess
I spent last year pretending it was all for the best
Oh honey Im troubled, I don’t know where to start
I think I just died of a broken heart.

I tried to forget what I learned about love
I run like a city and block like a drug
Oh fire and Ice, I can’t tell them apart
yeah I think I just died of a broken heart

I can’t stay here
with the lies you swore
no I can’t lay here
between love and war

I believed in you
For a life or two
but you fell out of view
when I needed you

See I wrote you a song just to say I pulled through
then I wrote you another to tell you the truth
and I wish theres was some way spare me this part
Oh I think I just died of a broken heart

I can’t stay here
with the lies you swore
no I can’t lay here
between love and war

I believed in you
For a life or two
but you fell out of view
when I needed you
I believed in you
For a life or two
but you fell out of view
when I needed you
when I needed you
when I needed you

this silent war
no sin, no score
I said, nothing is, nothing is wrong
I said, nobodys, nobodys home
One kiss farewell, No way to tell
you how it felt to lose it all.

I believed in you
For a life or two
but you fell out of view
when I needed you
I believed in you
For a life or two
Where the hell were you
When I needed you.
Track Name: Heroine
Hold me Close
Hold me in
Babe your love
feels like heroine

So calm my hands
Touch my skin
The shaking stops
when the drug kicks in

but I'm
Out of love
out of guides
out of rules
and out of lines
its on me
I'm out of days
I'm out of nights
too many wrongs
to make it right
this time, I bleed

Hold me once
I told you twice
we lost this war
we rolled the dice

I know I did the best
that I could do.
but I could never
give enough to you.
but every part you didn’t break
I tried to break myself
when you left me
When you left me.

but I'm
Out of love
out of guides
out of rules
and out of lines
its on me
I'm out of days
I'm out of nights
too many wrongs
to make it right
this time, I bleed
Track Name: Milk and Water
You were born of milk and water,
Beneath a quiet southern sky.
You cried out for an answer,
for all the broken hearts you hide.

You know the calm before, the calm before, the calm before you go
Oh it was never meant to last.
And its gone before, its gone before, its gone before you know
You were always in my past.

And I get lost in the feeling
Hold on
Cuz I wont stop believing
Oh no
when you're lost in the feeling
Hold on
Ya you wont stop believing
Oh no

I was born of oil and water
Into a false reality
I cried out with all my questions
But no one would answer me

You know the calm before, the calm before, the calm before you go
Oh it was never meant to last.
And its gone before, its gone before, its gone before you know
You were always in my past.

Cuz I get lost in the feeling
Hold on
And I wont stop believing
Oh no
when you're lost in the feeling
Hold on
Ya you wont stop believing
Oh no

No Im lost in the feeling
Hold on
I wont stop believing
Oh no
You're lost in the feeling
Hold on
You wont stop believing
Oh no

Are you lost in the feeling
Hold on
I wont stop believing
Oh no
You're lost in the feeling
Hold on
You wont stop believing, believing, believing,
Are you lost in the feeling?
Track Name: Wilderness
Oh the moment that
my eyes fell on you
I asked my heart to stop
giving in too soon.

Oh the moment that
I first heard your voice
It was the perfect pitch
In a world of noise.

Stay with me tonight
let your senses lost this fight
In the open wilderness of love.

Let me show you how
you should never be without.
So lay your weary hand on mine
and I'll show you who this heart beats for.

Oh the moment that
You first graced my hand
Oh I felt the tides
push my heart to land.

So stay with me tonight
let your senses lost this fight
In the open wilderness of love.

let me show you how
you should never be without
So lay your weary hand on mine
and I'll show you who this heart beats for

OH the moment that
you let me kiss your face
You burned in my soul
never to replace
Track Name: Trenches and Charms
Oh what do I do with this love of mine?
Do i break all the rules or draw back to the line?
Here I wait for a light burning minutes in red.
Theres a road of desire from my heart to my head.

It goes round and round and Im losing control
Theres a road from my heart to my head and it ebs and it flows

Oh I'm starting to Wonder
Are we any closer
are hearts any fonder
Oh as the road gets longer
I can’t put to words how much
that I want her to leave
and run away with me

Am I dreaming too much am I bending the truth?
I can't trust how I feel when Im staring at you.
Here I lay for the night while you throw up your arms.
Cuz I traded it all for these trenches and charms.

It goes round and round and Im losing control
Theres a road from my heart to my head and it ebs and it flows

Oh I'm starting to Wonder
Are we any closer
are hearts any fonder
Oh as the road gets longer
I can’t put to words how much
that I want her to leave
and run away with me
