Track Name: Walls
Walls

When I was a boy I didn’t know about walls
When I was a teen I jumped them all
As a young man I’d knock them down
When I grew old I walked around

And now you’re on the other side
And I don’t believe you’re justified
To worry about me and my wandering eyes
Cause they always come back to you

You built a wall for you and a wall for me
And when I look over mine I know I can see
Your hand in mine and we’re wild and free
And the walls come down

When I was a boy I didn’t know about girls
When we were teens you rocked my world
As a young man I let you down
But know were old and I’m still around

You were satisfied but we were young time was on our side
You never wanted a life on the edge on a wire

You built a wall for you and a wall for me
And when I look over mine I know I can see
Your hand in mine and we’re wild and free
And the walls come down
Track Name: Songs For You
SONGS FOR YOU

Are you thinking about me right now?
I’m thinking about you
Are you sitting on the porch swing watching the rainfall as I sing
Songs for you

The rain will always pass away And with it washes yesterday
And so I’ll sing, I’ll sing, I’ll sing
Songs for you

Have you had those days where you couldn’t wait
But you still didn’t call
Did you give me space to contemplate
Did you catch breath and hesitate
You were bound to fall

The rain will always pass away
And with it washes yesterday
And so I’ll sing, I’ll sing, I’ll sing
Songs for you


And with each line, I grow close to you, I fall far behind.
And I’ll be fine, twenty years gone by, still you’re on my mind

Are you thinking about me right now
I’m thinking about you
Look at all the time that’s passed
Children grow and nothing lasts, Than there’s you


And though we’ve found a hint of gray
My thoughts might slipped and my voice may fade
But still I’ll sing, I’ll sing, I’ll sing
Songs for you

Somewhere ages and ages away
My thoughts might slip and my voice may fade
But still I’ll sing, I’ll sing, I’ll sing
Songs for you
Track Name: Redeemed
REDEEMED

You're far away from me now
So far away from me now but some how
I think you can see, the things I need
I know I’m a long way from being redeemed

Why must you hold on so tight
If you let go I won’t take flight
I wish you could see, the things you mean
I know I’m a long way from being redeemed

I understand why you deny me
Petrified cold colored eyes
I’ll give you one more day to cry for me

Then I’m coming to testify
Not excuse or justify
And you must realize
I’ve let you down but I’ve never lied
And I’m not starting now

I’ve heard hope crack in your voice
Still you protest as if you’ve a choice
You need to concede to make believe
We’re not such a long way from being redeemed

And we’ll survive I can tell
Yes we’ll survive I can tell
You need to believe and soon you’ll see
We’re not such a long way from being redeemed
Track Name: Let Me Take You Home
You've been looking good all night
and I'm the man to treat you right
come on baby let me take you home

This ain't another love song
It's more a one night stand
it's not a gentle stroke of your cheek
your eyes say you understand
Come on baby let me take you home

I know what you want from me
it ain't a wine and dine
and when you think you got what you want
we'll do it one more time

You walked in every head turned
your eyes set on me
I like the way you lick your lips
I know the ways to set you free
Come on baby let me take you home

so you can take me back to your place
there's no need to hesitate
the sooner we leave the
the sooner I take you home

Theres no need to say ok
you know I'll take you anyways
the sooner we leave the sooner I take you home

we're gonna do it in the mirror
do it on the floor
gonna do it till you come
to me and beg for more
Track Name: If I Ever Get Away
See the side walks wrapped in celephane
Manicured holly, the stained glass panes
Behind you lies see through judging eyes

When Caroline was here we’d crash through the gates
Screaming at the keepers, reverberate
Cut through all these little lies

If I ever get away, if I ever get away
I will try to reach you
It’s a long way, but then again so are you

The tracks have melted into walking paths
Nothing but ties remain of broken pasts
That cut you, no more alibis

She stole away on a starless night
Chasing the tales of muscle and might
I backed down I was petrified.

If I ever get away, if I ever get away
I will try to reach you
It’s a long way, but then again so are you

Maybe we could finish the story
With faded glory and gold
Somehow we can find our fortune
It’s a little distorted but you’ve always been so bold

If I ever get away, if I ever get away
I will try to reach you
It’s a long way, but then again so are you
Track Name: Beer Is Now Cheaper Than Gas
I heard it on the news
Even saw the signs
Im still not sure I believe my eyes
With all the bad news, smokes 10 bucks a pack
(I got some good news)

Beer is now cheaper than gas (It's a good day)
Beer is now cheaper than gas
Beer is now cheaper than gas (have a holiday)
Beer is now cheaper than gas

You can take my car
I can walk to the pub
My house is underwater and I don't need your love
all my prayers have been answered at last

Beer is now cheaper than gas (It's a good day)
Beer is now cheaper than gas
Beer is now cheaper than gas (have a holiday)
Beer is now cheaper than gas


So raise your glass
yell I don't care
you can take my pension, don't need your health care
tonight we're all gonna have a blast

Beer is now cheaper than gas (It's a good day)
Beer is now cheaper than gas
Beer is now cheaper than gas (have a holiday)
Beer is now cheaper than gas


99 bottles of beer on the wall
99 bottles of beer
take one down and you put it in a glass
(Beer is still cheaper than gas)

98…….
Track Name: Life Goes On
His name is ancillary, he is a secondary teacher at the public school
He comes home after work, removes his tie and shirt inspecting the scars of fools
And life goes on and on, on and on, all around him life goes on

They called her reprobate, in the garden she was hated
as if she could stop the fall
and when they laid her down someone made a thorny crown and placed it by her dying head
And life goes on and on, on and on, all around him life goes on

They were like oil and water one day they had a daughter
and she would grow to love the world
despite their lies and hate, the line she drew was straight
pure as if she'd always known
that life goes on and on on and on all around her life goes on
Track Name: Think You Do
THINK YOU DO

As a kid I was known to fight
Not afraid of the afterlife
Hopefully I’ve paid my dues

Wasn’t much for school or books
Struggled with my mothers looks
I followed in my fathers shoes

Now you say you never knew me
I think you do

Left home in 84 fourteen and wanting more
I still don’t know what I thought I knew
Took a job in the factories fell apart in 93
Some say I was born to lose

Now you say you never knew me
I think you do

Went home and I tried to find
Reconcile some piece of mind
But it’s to late to see the truth
Sign says all night coffees black the lights are bright
Yet I sit in an empty booth

Now you say you never knew me
I think you do
Track Name: Home Soon
home soon

I can see you’re getting restless rolling in your bed
And it seems like no one can talk you off the edge
This one that one can’t believe she said
pack it all up gotta start all over again

So please come home soon
We’ll burn one when you do
Home soon where a cold one waits for you and I do
And all your friends wait too

Everybody’s got to go and find out on their own
Gotta find a place to shine some need to be shown
what their going through is natural
It’s all part of growing old

So please come home soon………..

So take all the time you need on the roads that you roam
We’ll always be here when you get home
Everybody needs a rock that doesn’t roll
So come on home

So please come home soon…………..
