Track Name: Whenever I Can
I'm going 70 down 40 West
The road ahead of me, calling my name
In just some jeans and a shirt, I'm barely dressed
But where I'm going, there's no need to change
I've got the windows down, one arm surfing the wind
I've got the music up, living loud
Several hours from now, I'll be pulling in
And I'll put my feet on Texas ground

It will be good to be home, with all the faces I know
And I try to be with them whenever I can
Good to be home, turning down that road
What a sight to see the smile on my mother's face again
Back to my old friends
Back to where my life began
I will be there whenever I can

I stopped in Little Rock for a Big Red
I got a sweet tea in Tennessee
The Lone Star State is straight ahead
A couple miles, from what I can see
All the thoughts race through my mind,
And it's not the caffeine making me like this
It's the nearness of the places and the memories
Of everything I miss

It will be good to be home, with all the faces I know
And I try to be with them whenever I can
Good to be home, turning down that road
What a sight to see the smile on my mother's face again
Back to my old friends
Back to where my life began
And I will be there whenever I can

And if I can't come down
I will drive a-round
And just imagine that I'm riding, flying,
Up and down the highway, that way,
I'll stay close to my home in my mind whenever I can

It's good to be home, with all the faces I know
And I try to be with them as much as I can
It's good to be home, turning down that road
What a sight to see

It will be good to be home, with all the faces I know
And I try to be with them whenever I can
Good to be home, turning down that road
What a sight to see
It's good to be home, It's good to be home,
It's good to be home
With the best of the best of the people I know
Back to my old friends
Back to where my life began
To pay my respects to my old man
To be a hometown boy again
I will be there whenever I can
Track Name: Everything
She's like the first bit of sunlight in the room
Before you know it, she'll be gone too soon
Open up your blinds to the warmth of the summer day
And watch as she'll burn you up if you want her to stay

She's got the fire that'll keep you alive, a smile you won't forget
And there's danger in her eyes, there's danger in her eyes

If you're gonna call her your queen,
You're gonna have to give her
Everything she wants
If you're gonna call her your queen,
You're gonna be giving
Everything she wants
And she'll take it all

You can catch her like a flake of snow, cold as she gets
Maybe she'll melt for you; she's not like the rest
Remember, when the seasons change, so will the girl
When the air tastes like peppermint, you're in her world
So easy to lose, she'll be gone with the breeze
You've got to give her all she wants, all that she needs

If you're gonna call her your queen
You're gonna have to give her
Everything she wants

If you're gonna call her your queen,
You're gonna be giving
Everything she wants

And she'll take it all
Leave you breathless, tired and restless
She'll take it all
Track Name: Without The Rain
You see yourself above everything,
A silver bird, untouchable.
You think you pull the strings,
You'll always be unbreakable.
And the dream never ends and nobody gets hurt,
But you don't see how far you can fall
Or just how hard you'll hit the earth
When you find you're just like us all

This is wrong, this is wrong,
How can you just let it be?
Start walking, start walking away
From the day that never came,
From the life without any pain.
Take your hands off your eyes and live your life
'Cause nothing can ever grow without the rain

The world down here is made like us,
With all its little imperfect grace,
Scarred and broken, full of love.
We're singing away our numbered days.
Your dream will end and one day, you'll hurt.
I know how far you can fall.
You never know just what it's worth
Until you find you're just like us all

This is wrong, this is wrong,
How can you just let it be?
Start walking, start walking away
From the day that never came,
From the life without any pain.
Take your hands off your eyes and live your life,
'Cause nothing can ever grow without the rain

This is wrong, this is wrong
How can you just let it be?
Start walking, start walking with me
(This is wrong this is wrong how can you just let it be)
Join the song, be who you were meant to be
Start walking with me

Free from the need of a perfect dream
Free to walk out into the sea
Free for a day to forget your name
Forget the life you knew without the rain
Track Name: Goodbye
Saying goodbye was never really your thing
As long as you could see me burning
Bet you didn't know I counted the days
When you made me out to be a boy without a place in your world
I couldn't sleep at night without a fight all because
You took my life away, oooh let me count the ways
Like a gun, oh the one I loved,
Had stolen my day

Falling to the ground,
From higher than I ever knew
I should have known by now
That what they said was true
You give them life,
But you make them want to die
But this time I know I'm right

You wanted someone just like yourself, didn't you
You should have known you'd be alone if you wanted someone like you

It's time I said goodbye to you
Let no other man know the pain I knew
I'm tired of being tried for being true
Goodbye to what I was, goodbye to you

Walking away was never that easy for me
But I'm coming around, I'm coming around
I'm no longer falling to the ground,
From higher than I ever knew
I sure do know by now
That what they say is true
You give them life,
But you make them want to die
This time and forever, I know I'm right

I know it's time I said goodbye to you
Let no other man know the pain I knew
I'm tired of being tried for being true
Goodbye to what I was, goodbye to you
Track Name: Retrospective
Lights up, let's search for whatever's out there
In the wreckage floating by
Just a little bit of nowhere
Just a marker of our fights
We've been reduced to yes and no
These shallow words will always show
That you don't want to change
As the world and I will always grow

Fast, heavy, unprepared for the
Crash, we stumbled time and again
I didn't know what to do
You pushed me away, I'm
Trash, this wasn't built to
Last, I couldn't be what you wanted
This is a retrospective

When I thought you were mine
He was right there on the other line
A nine-month one-night-stand
I loved and lost to another man
You have the patience of a madman
In a fight to the death
I guess I'll wring my hands
And curse again under my breath

I curse your name and I
Hate that it all went by so

Fast, heavy, unprepared for the
Crash, we stumbled time and again
I didn't know what to do,
You pushed me away, you're
Trash, this wasn't built to
Last, I couldn't be what you wanted
This is a retrospective

Get over, have a little faith...
You can feel that good again
Say, say you're sorry and I'll show you
I'm another man

I'm so much better than you knew
And it's all because of you
If only you would want to see
If only we could start anew

So unprepared for the
Crash, we stumbled time and again
I didn't know what you want
You pushed me away, I'm
Trash, this wasn't built to
Last, now I can see what you wanted

First, you were my first and it's sad
How I've become your
Past, but if the past is all that matters
Then I've got something going for me
Even though I couldn't be
More than a retrospective
Track Name: Fireworks
Fourth of July 2009
Fireworks all around
Top of the parking garage, just her and I
I can just see it now
The best moment
Is when we kissed in the afterglow
I thought that this would always be
My one best memory

Until the fourth of July
Of the very next year
When the reason why
Became so clear
There's never a sight
More perfect to see
Than when I see all the faces
Of my family and the fireworks
Will never be brighter than they were that night
In that memory

Walking in the waves at 3 am
On a North Carolina shore
My shirt on my shoulder, hand in hand
We walked til we couldn't anymore
I turned around and made a picture in my mind
I had never ever had it so good
I thought that this would always be
My one best memory

Until the fourth of July
Of the very next year
When the reason why
Became so clear
There's never a sight
More perfect to see
Than when I see all the faces
Of my family and the fireworks
Will never be brighter than they were that night
In that memory

Oh, and I just can't believe
There will be another brighter eve
But I know there's more, cause I've said that before

I hope the fourth of July
Of every year
I will look to the sky
With everyone near
There's never a sight
More perfect to see
Than when I see the light
On my family
From the fireworks
Track Name: You've Already Won
Would you look at that smile
It's like you've got a little secret
You're trying real hard not to tell
But secrets have never been your style
And I guess that I know you too well

For what it's worth
I can say it's not that I always knew it
But I'm sure you didn't beat me to it

If you think that you've fallen in love
And you believe you're the first to go down
I will remind you it's already done
Oh, my friend, you already won

Singing along to "American Honey"
And "That's Our Kind of Love"
The way that you laugh at the jokes that aren't funny
It may not be much, but enough

Oh I know
Anyone could laugh and sing
When you get to the heart of it, heart is the thing

If you think that you've fallen in love
And you believe you're the first to go down
I will remind you it's already done
Oh, my friend, you already won

You've already won

And if you think that you've fallen in love,
And you believe you're the first to go down
I will remind you each time you forget
Oh, girl, you've already won
Track Name: The Way
I took a walk just to see which way the wind blows
I didn't notice it until it hit my eyes
A blanket of summer air getting warm as the night goes by
Early morning for the street lights
Getting closer now
Getting closer now

Let's see the way the night looks
When no one's looking for it
Let's see the way the night looks
When it's just you and I

Let's see the way the night looks
When no one's looking for it
Show me the way your eyes look
When it's just you and I

After the rain, the steam coming up from the pavement
Makes you feel like walking through the clouds
That point in the sky where the light is bent
I am in a dream somehow
And I want you now
And I want you now

Let's see the way the night looks
When no one's looking for it
Let's see the way the night looks
When it's just you and I

Let's see the way the night looks
When no one's looking for it
Show me the way your eyes look
When it's just you and I

I could've slipped into anything you'd say
I could've fallen into a daze you don't wake up from
When the glow of 2 AM became a halo 'round your head
It doesn't seem fair, my world is
Turned upside down
When the glow of 2 AM becomes a halo 'round your head

(chorus x2)
Track Name: Heroes
The stars out tonight won't leave me alone
I can't help but wonder just what he had known
The stories he told by the look in his eyes
Said more than he had to of so many lives
The only time he spoke of the war time at all,
He spoke of his brothers in arms who gave their all

He said, "They call me a hero back home, but all I feel is alone."
"All of the heroes I've known have their names engraved in a stone."

He said, "Hey, I'm no hero"
"For the love of the place I call home"
"Hey, I'm no hero"
"They died, I'm the one who made it home"
"Keep their memory always alive, close to the heart, and these heroes will survive."

The day he had left to go over the seas
He saw all the fear and the fight within me
He said "It's alright, we're gonna be fine"
"We're in this together, come rain or come shine,"
Come hell or high water or hot desert sun
We promised each other that we'd never run.
We'd already won.

He never made it back home, but I made sure he didn't die alone
He was the best man that I've ever known. I won't believe all that's left is a stone

He said, "Hey, I'm no hero"
As if he never knew
I said, "Hey, you're MY hero"
He said "I will always be with you"
I hold the memory buried somewhere safe inside
Close to my heart where all my heroes will survive

Hey, for all our heroes
Both in and out of our time
For those who made the choice,
Those who bravely faced the climb
Hey, we call them heroes
They proved nothing's greater than
To give your life for country
And for your fellow man
When you go home, tell everyone and say,
"For our tomorrow, they gave their today"
Track Name: Home
There's an old mandolin laid down on my bed
A part of my history, my brother had said
The body is weak and the neck had been worn
The strings, out of tune, sing only to mourn
That the hands that had played it so long long ago
No longer will make it sing
But the spirit inside, his memory, I know
Means more than this wood could ever show

There's an old photograph my father had shown,
When he had taught me all he had known,
Of a ship on the water, the sun laid down low,
A tin can sailor just watching the show
And the hands that held me so long long ago
Had taken that shot at sea
And the man that had made me and helped me to grow, I know, would be proud of me now

I'll never let you die, I won't let you go
As long as you're here inside, I am home
The love that you gave brings me home,
Brings me home

There's a story to tell of who gave me my name
And the one who gave it to him just the same
Of travels and trials and ten thousand miles
Of loves and of losses and once in awhiles
And the meaning of living each day that I have
With nothing to hold me down
And the day he had told me I grew up too fast
Means just as much to me now
Track Name: Get To You
I find it hard to wait for you to walk right in
I don't believe in fate anymore, and I like to win
I make my own luck, baby, it got me all I have
Whatever it takes to get to you, I've got it bad

I've lit the fuse, now it's burning up the last of this
I know the rules and I know the risk

I'm on my way to get to you
I'm on my way to my shining star
I'm on my way to get to you
God knows where you are,
But I pray I'm on the way

It's just too late for guesswork, I have to know
The city lights can not be trusted to take you where you want to go
Drive fast to make up time and don't ever look behind
However long it takes, I will make you mine

I've lit the fuse, and now it's burning up the last of this
I know the rules, and now I know the risk

I'm on my way to get to you
I'm on my way to my shining star
I'm on my way to get to you
God knows where you are,
But I pray I'm on the way

(You know what to do, you gotta get somewhere)
(Don't turn around, just look forward)
I see that smile
I see that smile
I see that smile
I see that smile

I'm on my way to get to you
I'm on my way to my shining star
I'm on my way to get to you
God knows where you are,
But I pray, everyday, I'm on the way
Track Name: Like New
Your hand on your waist
And your hair falls in your face
In that most elegant fashion

Don't think, don't speak, don't move
I hope I remember you this way

And I know
We went too far tonight
But that's just how we are

Baby you know nothing about
what you do
We could touch the sky, we'll get so high
we'll feel like new

Somewhere between the
simple subtle meanings
I found you were more than the
angel I always knew

Did I say that the way you look
Has really made my defenses fade away?

I don't want to be friends after tonight
Come on, be mine this time

Baby you know nothing about
what you do
We could touch the sky, we'll get so high
we'll feel like new

Tonight the sky is ours,
Such heights for us to find
Come on, the sky is ours,
Come with me tonight
