Track Name: The Way It Shakes
I got my feet on the ground
I got my head in the clouds
All my sins follow after me,
And it just ain’t working any more

That’s just the way it shakes
It’s not the hearts we break
It’s not the love we make or words we fake, my love

Who knows the way?

Grey hair’s gonna tell me what I need
Grey hair’s gonna tell me what they see
They think they know who I wanna be
And it just ain’t working anymore

That’s just the way it shakes
It’s not the hearts we break
It’s not the love we make or words we fake, my love

Who knows the way?
Who knows the way?
Who knows the way?
Track Name: Blind Eyes
Waiting on fate to show me the way
Sitting around doing nothing sounds better than what they say
There’s a knock on the door and it calls my name
But I can’t follow it out cuz my drive has faded away from me

This feeling’s growing stronger
As life is growing longer
I’ll try to find

Quiet the mind and slow it down
Listen up, don’t say it
Look for it and it will appear crystal clear
There’s a knock on the door and it calls to me
I could leave all this behind, take the leap
And then I’de see that nothing is free

This feeling’s growing stronger
As life is growing longer
I’ll try to find
The meaning in the minor
The beauty hidden by our fast lives and blind eyes

I’ve been here, waiting, hoping for an invitation
To let me out, to clear my name
It’s coming… I feel it
Track Name: It's Over
I’ve wasted most my life on loving you my lady
No whispers, no reasons, you know that it’s over
Track Name: Out of My Hands
Money’s got me working to the bone
It’s got me stretched so thin my hearts about to break, for goodness sake
I’m twenty one
I’m trying to make it on my own,
I’m living my life through a loan and my credits bad
I’m nearly had

Lord, please hear me
I’m trying everything but I just can’t rise above it
Some things in this life, I’ll always just covet, doing what I can
Some things just are out of my hands

Some people seem to always have it made
I gotta turn my face away it’s not their fault
It’s no ones fault
Yeah they’re still talking about if you work hard everyday
Things will start to go your way
But that depends which way you’re going

Lord, please hear me.
I’m trying everything but I just can’t rise above it
Some things in this life, I’ll always just covet, doing what I can
Some things just are out of my hands

Lord, please hear me.
I’m trying everything but I just can’t rise above it
Some things in this life, I’ll always just covet, doing what I can
Some things just are out of my hands

It’s out of my hands
Track Name: Join Together
I won’t hear the old excuses
I’m tired of empty music
I hope for brighter days ahead

We must join together, lift each other.
Break the bonds that hold us

I pray mistakes can be corrected.
Ever we’re directed down paths that polarize our fates

So we must join together
Lift each other, break the bonds that hold us
Come and join together
Bring us higher
Far above all we see.
Far above the broken world we made

I try to write it on a page
I’m not the one to write what we’re trying to say
But now I make my case
I don’t know what it will take.

So we must join together
Lift each other, break the bonds that hold us
Come and join together
Bring us higher, far above all we see
Far above the broken world we made

Come and join the music
Come and join my song
Track Name: Good Timing
Silence, Silence, Silence is a bye-gone memory
Hustle around, push through the crowd
Start speaking loud and hope for the best

Now there’s no place to hide
Here’s to the good times
Oh my, they will shoot it to you straight
And their finger’s on the trigger
They’ll take you out
Oh they got some good timing

I work for a price
Don’t roll the dice
No sacrifice isn’t anyway to live

Now there’s no place to hide
Here’s to the good times
Oh my, they will shoot it to you straight
And their finger’s on the trigger
They’ll take you out
Oh they got some good timing
Track Name: What Lies Ahead
The worn out house sits alone in the grass and trees
The wind spreads the seeds
The brave old soul turns his frame to the setting sun
His time has come

Whisper of the past
Louder than what lies ahead
What lies ahead
What lies ahead

Your presence no longer a thought of mine
No ties to bind

Whisper of the past
Louder than what lies ahead
What lies ahead
What lies ahead
Track Name: Into Your Own
If you knew there was nothing but this
What would you pay to find the way?
Everybody claims to understand
Where we will go after it ends

How are we to know?
The proof will never show it to us

I bet the worst isn’t over
I know the best is yet to come for us my life
There’s not a thing that prepares you
For all the fights you have to lose before you grow into your own

Taking every chance I can to make it right to join the fight
Is it worth jumping into the deep breaking my spirit naturally

How are we to know?
The proof will never show it to us

I bet the worst isn’t over
I know the best is yet to come for us my life
There’s not a thing that prepares you
For all the fights you have to lose before you grow into your own

How are we to know?
The proof will never show
Track Name: Nothing but Time
Waiting for changes that won’t ever come
Now you realize that you have to make the first move

I know it looks like I can’t make it right

Anything you want
I’m already there
If ever you’re lonely
I’ll make us a pair

And I got nothing but time babe

Days pile up and I got nothing to show for it
No more wasting time because someday I’m gonna die

I know it looks like I can’t make it right

Anything you want
I’m already there
If ever you’re lonely
I’ll make us a pair

But I got nothing but time babe
I got nothing but time babe

I want it back
I want it back
I want it back
Track Name: Something's Missing
Something’s missing in the way you look at me
I wish you could love me like I love you girl

We’ve been up, we’ve been down, we’ve been all over
We’ve been up, we’ve been down, we’ve been all over
Track Name: Let Me Be Your Man
I got nothing to admit to you my love
You weren’t there when I needed you
Now there’s water running underneath our feet
It’s a matter of time til your swept away

But I wanna be your man

And if you want me
Then let me be your man

When I woke up the next morning you were gone
Stay or leave just make up your mind
Now there’s water running underneath our feet
And it’s a matter of time til were swept away

But I wanna be your man

If you want me
Then let me be your man
If you want me
Then let me be your man
Track Name: On My Way
Far across the lines that we made is everything I want
I know it’ll let me down again
But I want you to be there with me

I drive to the end of the world if it’s what you want
I know that I broke your trust again

Anytime you need me I am on my way through thick or thin, it doesn’t matter
I will hold back time
I will show you anyway that I know how
Cuz I got time for you to be the one you wanted to be

So I say, I’m not gonna let you down
Cuz I want you to be there with me
Anytime you need me I am on my way through thick or thin, it doesn’t matter
I will hold back time
I will show you anyway that I know how
Cuz I got time for you to be the one you wanted to be

Oh, my love
My love

Anytime you need me I am here
