Track Name: Between Your Lips
My baby's brand new so all I can do is stare as she walks by,
Said my baby's all mine I know she wears it like a sign,
She won't stare while you walk by,

Because she’s the kinda girl that you always wanna have around,
Like she knows what to say but never has to speak too loud,
She always has enough But never leaves me satisfied,
An she never acts too tough But you can never tell she’s cried,

Here we are just smiling as the tide rolls in
And the waves curl like your toes do when we kiss
Here we are unwinding but the knot still tied,
And i stay yeh caught between your lips, I'm caught between lips

She can read my lips even when she’s kissing me,
Like she knows my thoughts but ignores my fantasies,
Cause she knows she’s the only thing I desire,
An she’s always cold but boy she sets my heart on fire,

Here we are just smiling as the tide rolls in
And the waves curl like your toes do when we kiss
Here we are unwinding but the knot still tied,
And i stay yeh caught between your lips, I'm caught between lips

My baby's brand new so all I can do is stare as she walks by,
Said my baby's all mine I know she wears it like a sign,
No she won't stare while you walk by.
Track Name: All The Same
We were young and yet so bold with everything from the start,
Even in the cold, you warmed my broken heart,
And with a phone call from a friend, you let my love begin
And it’s all over, but it’s all I got,

Oh and I found love too much, too much,
That I saw you in your pain,
Oh and I found love too much too much,
And it’s crazy but I’d do it all the same, all the same,

After the ice age the summer came with brighter nights than before,
Slept in your bed for days but still I wanted more,
The rumor is they call it love, they call it love, they call it love,
So lets stay away until we find our love, our love

Oh and I found love too much, too much,
That I saw you in your pain,
Oh and I found love too much too much,
And it’s crazy but I’d do it all the same, all the same,

Oh and I found love too much, too much,
That I saw you in your pain,
Oh and I found love too much too much,
And it’s crazy but I’d do it all the same, and I'd do it all the same.
Track Name: Goodbye
When did the best of things become incomplete,
The finer the goods the more obsolete,
And when did you trade in your present for a future that will,
Only come to past,

And how do we know our love from our spite,
The smallest of actions at skyscraper heights,
And how do we know when our well has run dry,
When we had no water at all,

And where do you find the strength to retract,
The words to a girl who won't love you back,
And why did you say them at all when you knew,
That she would only walk by,

Tell me how can you sit and waste with the time,
While shrugging the words and the voice in your mind,
And how do I keep my voice down when I,
Wanna tell my mind to shut up,

And how do you remember the time or the years,
I forgot all my numbers and started counting by my fears,
And how do I shrug off the words like you,
When I know that this is the end,

And just like the waters that leave with the tide,
I would walk through the fires with a limp in my stride,
But please darling don't ask me why because I,
Don't even know myself,

And we treated love like some modern marvel,
Like a sweet young couple in some fictitious novel,
But if you want something done I learned,
That you need to do it your self,

So goodbye.
Track Name: Cedar Road
Worldwide heartache has hit low,
Since my girl up and left for the show,
Broadway, the stage, swept her away,
Papers print in color only her name,

1950 she’s on a roll,
Plays her part, spreading love as she goes,
I stays locked up,
Keep that whiskey in my cup
With no hope or agenda,
Just to drunk to remember

Cuz she said she’d remember Cedar Road,
All the good times that was all she’d ever known,
So I held her close and said I’ll let you go,
As long as you remember cedar road,

One day I decide to grab my keys,
And have a drive,
Towards you and tell you how you broke my heart,
So I drove 6 days, found the place,
But you were already on the stage so jumped on too
Pushed you aside and said this is my part

Cuz she said she’d remember cedar road,
All the good times had was all you’d ever known,
So I held you close and said I’ll let you go
As long as you remembered Cedar Road,

Well I tried,
Baby please now don’t you lie,
Well I tried,
I’ve waited four years to the night
Well I tried,
You didn’t call, you didn’t write

So I went back on up to Cedar Road,
Thought about my life there all alone,
See I had her close, now I can’t let go,
So I struck a match and burnt down Cedar Road,

She said she’d remember Cedar Road
All the good times that was all she’d ever known
So I held her close and said I’ll let you go
As long as you remember cedar road
Track Name: 500 Mile Journey
This morning we awoke with the world and saw the sky was smiling,
We awoke in dark forests and began to see the sun was rising,
We crossed the Santiago sat beside a church and just burst out laughing,
Then we stood in disbelief cause we had no idea where we were standing,

Let me leave, let me leave,

We made camp in the Pyrenees and listened as the trees were softly twisting,
As you feel down to your knees and screamed at the moon above "Are You Listening?"
We all just wonder when tomorrow comes are we done for or are we leaving,
Pack your things on to a silver bird and be thankful for the gifts we are receiving,

Let me leave, let me leave,

This world is full of thieves and angels and it's discerning,
That's what was said to me, upon returning from your 500 mile journey,
Well I've missed my family and friends but it's worth relief from all that I've been yearning,
True I've been gone but now I'm home, thanks for keeping the fires burning

Let me leave, let me leave, let me leave, let me leave.
Track Name: The Pirate Song
Hey mom don't expect to hear from me I ran away with the British infantry,
They invited me and Kristy to camp out by the campgrounds,

Turtle soup's a change from fruit loops I'll only eat it if you let me shoot your gun,
And we can keep it next to me in case the police come,
An that'll keep em away I saw an old man's bare ass today,
Remember that Kristy, when he bent over his friend laughed at me,

Well I wouldn't worry like that sweetie,
Cause police round here won't bark up that tree and he said,
It's cause we're really not the British infantry,
We are the pirates from the Caribbean Sea

I wanna be a pirate, I wanna be a pirate, I wanna be a pirate
Dum dum dum,
I wanna be a pirate, i wanna be a pirate,

Hey mom don't expect to hear from me I ran away with the British infantry,
Sorry they're just too much fun, they roll their own cigarettes and they gave me some,
And did I mention I now own a gun
They make their own muskets I'm the captain of a ship and they call me Captain Kris,
They're just too much fun and they gave me a gun,
I like the sound of Captain Kris it's got a nice little ring to it I wanna be a pirate,

Hey mom don't expect to hear from me I ran away with the British infantry,
Now I'm sailin around the Caribbean Sea,
I stole my first yacht from a guy named Andy Mckee,
I left him with a life boat and a flare so don't worry,
Oh now I'm headed to Mexico to sell it for a large sum,
So I can buy better swords and more rum,

I wanna be a pirate, I wanna be a pirate, I wanna be a pirate
Dum dum dum,
I wanna be a pirate, i wanna be a pirate,

Hey mom don't expect to hear from me I ran away with the British infantry,
I'm sure you saw the TV there's a warning thats out,
I'm the hell raising pirate of LSC,
Hell yeah that's me,
I can't imagine how proud Ry & Murphy must be,

Hey mom don't expect to hear from me I ran away with the British infantry,
They're just too much fun, they roll their own cigarettes and they gave me some,
And did I mention I now own a gun
They make their own muskets I'm the captain of a ship and they call me Captain Kris,
They're just too much fun and they gave me a gun,
I like the sound of Captain Kris it's got a nice little ring to it I wanna be a pirate,
I'm finally a Pirate.
Track Name: The Ballad Of Cap'n Kris
All alone she dances in the dark,
Oh please watch your step my dear,
As the cannons crash missing every mark,
The waves they claim, an the Captain steers,

A man, a crown, I think we're going down,
Well can't you see that all we need,
Is a flag, a boat, to keep this dream afloat,
I'll be damned to fall foul of a man

I set my course so show me no remorse,
But how did it get this way?
And Krista, my dear, how did we get here?
Oh no, oh oh,

I've seen my share of battle war and hate,
Oh no how these tides have changed,
But victory is on no silver plate,
embrace her waves her face is cold and strange,

At the sound of a horn, the word is all aboard,
May the lord shine down and strike true steel,
Well the pen my friend, is mighty as a sword,
Write your way from war and take the wooden wheel,

I set my course so show me no remorse,
But how did it get this way?
And Krista, my dear, how did we get here?
Oh no, oh oh,

Without a sound we set courses Bristol bound,
to mend the wounds of our maiden ship,
A light a bell, i woke up in a cell,
With the bars of iron, keeping me down,
The rust, a drip, awake me from this trip,
Stained with holy water as the flames did build

I set my course so show me no remorse,
But how did it get this way?
And Krista, my dear, how did we get here?
Oh no, oh oh,
Track Name: Set In Stone
Yield softly to the words I speak to you,
Whispered softly past our hair and spoken true,
As morning comes the day has changed a new,
Glistening on clean with the morning dew,

Beneath the clouds and sky above
And all we know is life and love,
May hard ships come I'll make it go,
We'll meet again along the atom flow,

Sometimes are words get twisted through the waves,
Words my Dad spoke still guide me to this day,
And as a man I try to live my life the same,
Kind with good intent and well behave

But times will rear their twisted ugly face,
And hearts will sink a lost unguided pace,
But that don't mean you've gone and lost the race,
You've seen the good don't let go of her taste,

Beneath the clouds and sky above
And all we know is life and love,
May hard ships come I'll make it go,
We'll meet again along the atom flow,

I trust my mind to keep me safe from sin,
It don't always work and sometimes I give in,
The words all wrong and the melody is all off key,
Is this set in stone is this how it's got to be?

Beneath the clouds and sky above
And all we know is life and love,
May hard ships come I'll make it go,
We'll meet again along the atom flow,

Beneath the clouds and sky above, (Beneath the clouds and sky above)
And all we know is life and love, (And all we know is life and love)
May hard ships come I'll make it go, (I love you but let's take this slow)
We'll meet again along the atom flow, (I love you but I never know.)
Track Name: Warrior
Blown away by the current, all the people all the same,
Too late for forgiveness, we needed to be saved,

Blown away by the current, all the people, just too late,
Too late for forgiveness, we needed to be saved,

And I want to keep this alive, but it's so hard to swim against the tide

What's that in the distance? A few kids beggin' for change,
I filled their hat they said no take it back we're just upset with the human race,
We're just a couple of warriors, looking for a light,
Oh do you have one please, I need to smoke this weed,
And I guess that I could use the high,

And they said how people nowadays, oh they just aint being themselves,
They said that I start but I had to do what was in my heart,

We're just a couple of warriors, looking for a light,
Oh do you have one please, I need to smoke this weed,
And I guess that I could use the high,

Cause in our hearts lies a warrior,
Looking for a light,
Oh god please explain why the past can't change
If it could well then you know we'd try,
If it could well then you know we'd try.
Track Name: Are You Listening
Hold fire, is this the end, of empty heart, if not pretend,
I don't know why but I feel like myself,

And I can feel the change running through my veins,
And I can see the smile and it's been for some time,
And I could help you find the time the place and all your looking for,

An I'll try your way if you try mine, I hope this works out yeah,
I hope we shine,
Cause nothing feels better than
Reaching out for love,

Could you feel what I'm feeling, yes I can,
Could you just pick it up, I hold it in my hands,
Could feel what I'm feeling, hold it in your hands, let it ring,
Are you listening?

Calling all teachers, remember when, you were the child,
and don't pretend,
Don't make believe you never thought the same as me

Cause I can feel the change running through my veins,
And I can see the smile and it's been for some time,
And I could help you find the time the place and all your looking for,

An I'll try your way if you try mine, I hope this works out yeah,
I hope we shine,
Cause nothing feels better than
Reaching out for love,

Could you feel what I'm feeling, yes I can,
Could you just pick it up, I hold it in my hands,
Could feel what I'm feeling, hold it in your hands, let it ring,
Are you listening?

Could you feel what I'm feeling, won't you let it ring,
And could you feel what I'm feeling, won't you let it ring,
Are you listening?
