Track Name: Walk This Road
Life is such an uncertain road
Don’t know how far or where it goes
Sometimes it takes us up so high
Sometimes it makes you wanna die
No matter where it lead there’s one thing I know
I wanna walk this road with you

It may wear you down and bare your soul
Secret places far more precious than gold
It can lead through fog and endless night
Through times of warmth, times of light
No matter where it lead there’s one thing I know
I wanna walk this road with you

Now the road won’t always be so smooth
But girl it’s still the road I choose
‘Cause the way you love me oh so strong
Together I know we belong
No matter where it lead there’s one thing I know
I wanna walk this road with you
Track Name: Sometimes
sometimes I think I'm over you
but now the past defeats the new
sometimes I wish you were still here with me
oh how your memory teases me
sometimes, sometimes

sometimes when I'm alone and blues
my mind drifts towards the thought of you
oh how I miss those times when I held your hand in mine
A reminiscent breeze brings hope for fairer skies
sometimes, sometimes

sometimes think I should sacrifice my pride
let love free feelings trapped inside
but I can see you look away
alone I sit in silence, my hopes betrayed
sometimes, sometimes
Track Name: Life's Too Short
Sometimes my life feels all in disarray
Things left undone keep pilin’ up
I’m bailing out my life raft with a spoon
Seems every day new leaks have sprung
Don’t wanna let my worries drown me
‘Cause life’s too short

I’m feeling stuck in my situation
Like it’s time to hit the road
Feels like a ton of bricks crushing my mind
I’d love to lose this heavy load
I really need to take a holiday
‘Cause life’s too short

Life’s too short
To feel this stressed out
Life’s too short
To let my mind be filled with doubt
I could let worry get the best of me
But life’s too short

I’m so busy worrying night and day
I’ve got to schedule time to think
I need to stop and smell the roses
‘Cause being worried sick sure does stink
I’m losing sleep over troubles pilin’ up
But life’s too short

Life’s too short
To feel this stressed out
Life’s too short
To let my mind be filled with doubt
I could stay focused on my problems
But life’s too short
Track Name: Desire & Fear
Why do I stay here at my 9 to 5?
I watch time for the quittin’ hour all day
I’m standin’ still while life passes by
I know I need a change
But fear of the unknown tempers my faith

Desire & fear divide me
A compromise just may prove safe
But what is safety without happiness
Somehow I’ve got to find a better way

Is promise held within a sacrifice?
I know not reward without risk
We search our souls for means to find the path
That leads the way towards our bliss

Desire & fear divide me
A compromise just may prove safe
But what is safety without happiness
Somehow I’ve got to find a better way
Track Name: You Might Think
You might think you know me
The way you judge the things I do (repeat)
You paint an image of me
I know just isn’t true

I treat you the best I know how
But you just don’t seem to care (repeat)
When it comes to your misunderstandin’
Lord knows I’ve had my share

I’ve got a guitar that keeps me comp’ny
The way it clears my mind (repeat)
I’ve made me a decision woman
Gonna leave you far behind
Track Name: Make You Mine
You glide into the room
An angel of grace & a dream come true
I’m held a prisoner by your sweet stare
You make me heart flare
It would be a sin to waste any time
I’m gonna make you mine

I’ve been tryin’ my best just to get by
When this precious jewel catches my eye
I would be a very wealthy man
If I could be the one who holds your hand
Girl you’re far too sweet a find
I wanna make you mine

Eyes that long to tell
Girl I sure hope you mean me well
You’re like water in a desert land
And I’m a very thirsty man
Girl you’re far too sweet a find
I’m gonna make you mine
Track Name: Eye For an Eye
Humble house along the river lay in ruins
A bridge that sits between two towns is soon no more
Angry hearts build walls that keep out any daylight
Walls that fuel a fire as neighbors go to war
A piece of land will yield whatever seed is planted
Some say “break a window” some say “knock on a door”

An eye for an eye, the whole world goes blind
An eye for an eye, the whole world goes blind

The warmth of home is soon reduced to fragile shelter
Many people leave what was home far behind
Memories haunt vacant streets and empty playgrounds
Dreams of power and vengeance trample human rights
Now possibility is master of the future
A future that depends on which dream’s brought to life

An eye for an eye, the whole world goes blind
An eye for an eye, the whole world goes blind

Throughout our lives we learn to live within our boundaries
But children see horizons framed by endless sky
So easily a crowd is blinded by one vision
Humanity and reason beg us question why
‘Cause surely there is more to our social evolution
Than conflict resolution done with a gun or a knife

An eye for an eye, the whole world goes blind
An eye for an eye, the whole world
Track Name: Take It Back
Sometimes woman I think you’re a devil
You know that you’re no saint
You get mad and say things sometimes that are
Well, the way things ain’t
Maybe it’s the liquor
Maybe you’re just feeling rude
I must admit that sometimes
I contribute to your mood
Just yesterday you told me you and everyone else think I’m a fool
Baby, you know that ain’t too cool

Awww, take it back
I wanna hear you take it back
She said “blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah
I didn’t mean it, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah”
She may as well have spoke another language ‘cause sometimes
You can’t take it back

So I drove off and a cop stopped me
For doing 30 in a 25
He then proceeded to insult my ability to drive
Maybe it was the liquor
Maybe I was just feeling rude
I don’t wanna blame my woman
But she contributed to my mood
So I said, “Maybe I’ve had one too many
I know that ain’t too cool
But has anyone told you lately you’re a fool?”

Awww, take it back
I wish that I could take it back
I said “Mr. Officer, Sir, blah, blah, blah
I didn’t mean it, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah”
I may as well have spoke another language ‘cause sometimes
You can’t take it back
Track Name: I Hate My Job
I hate my job
The way they treat me like a slave (repeat)
I dream of quittin’ this job
Each and every workin’ day

I’m gonna head to the bar
I’m gonna have myself a beer (repeat)
Gonna forget about this job
And how much I hate workin’ here

Hey Bossman
You got a problem with my work? (repeat)
‘Cause then I’m askin’ if you don’t
Why you always such a jerk

I hate my job in the mornin’, I hate it at night
I say if I don’t quit this job man there’s gonna be a fight
I hate my job, I said I hate it day and night
I’m gonna quit this job
Find one a where they treat my right

I’m getting’ tired
Of being bossed around by you (repeat)
I can feel you breathin’ down my neck
On every little thing I do

I hate my job in the mornin’, I hate it at night
I say if I don’t quit this job man there’s gonna be a fight
I hate my job, I said I hate it day and night
I’m gonna quit this job
Find one a where they treat my right
Track Name: Somethin' Missin'
Murky clouds over my head
Know of longing’s drawn out sting
I’m feeling lonely, but I’m not alone
And the rain begins to sing,
“It seems that there is somethin’ missin’”
New day, same old thing

Am I merely an island
Or the seed of a place called home?
Must survival be such a selfish act
When who I am is not alone?
It seems that there is something’ missin’

Hard times seem to strike at random
Many people live in fear
We all face the world together
Too often alone we persevere
It seems that there is somethin’ missin’
