Track Name: Back On The Road
Back on the Road

There’s no going back, got my bags all packed
What you did was the final last straw
Maybe it’s just me, oh but it can’t be
I deserve you disrespecting me

Didn’t think you were that guy to look in my face and lie
No explanation, no apology
To sit calmly by while I cried and cried
Well I guess this is not meant to be

I know you made a mistake, I know you cared
How quickly this can change, now not a moment to spare
I’m back on the road I know, you’ll stay right here
When I’m behind that wheel, I’ll shed no more tears

I guess I fell behind, while I tried to hide
Every emotion comes out eventually
And yes I crossed that bridge, and I might have burned it
Well, that’s okay I’m not going back there anyway

I know you made a mistake, I know you cared
How quickly this can change, now not a moment to spare
I’m back on the road I know, you’ll stay right here
When I’m behind that wheel, I’ll shed no more tears
Track Name: Rain
Rain

It’s too early for rain
There’s still snow on the boulevard
You stand in the lane
Pretend that it’s not so hard
To feel anything, to feel this pain
It’s too early for rain

You’re not waiting for spring
To feel the restless stir
To feel that sting
I knowing it’s all over
And when summer comes, you know you’ll be gone
You’re not waiting for spring

Lay it all on the line now baby
Lay it all out for me . . .

Rivers and streams
Carry our tears away
Run down the streets
Eating the snow away
Where do they go, what do they know
Little rivers of dreams

Everything’s cold
Even the rain that falls
Even your soul
Now that the love is gone
And nobody knows, where this could go
Everything’s cold

Lay it all on the line, now baby
Lay it all out for me
Let me know there’s a reason, baby
There’s a reason to leave . . .
Track Name: Poetry
Poetry

Those words you wrote down
I never thought them to be true
Until I heard them from you

Such poetry I’ve
Been thinking of since we first met
And now I can’t get you outta my head

And there’s a feeling I can not escape
There’s a road that I wanna follow
You make me feel like a real lady
And so happy I cannot explain

It was easy from the get-go
And I never felt so much so fast
And I just keep falling
And such attention I do not deserve
But I’m taking everything I can get
It’s been a long time

And there’s a feeling I cannot escape
And there’s a road that I wanna follow
You make me feel like a real lady
And so happy I cannot explain

I hope you hear this
And I hope you feel the way I do
‘Cause if you don’t I’ll . . .

Go back to how I used to be
Run away and feel so free
But I’ll miss your hands on me
The way you look, and your poetry
Track Name: Between You And Me
Between You and Me

I’ve never felt so mad, never felt so sad
Never felt so bad
You bring it out in me, what I can’t even see
Until you leave me

And you took it all, took it all away
Yeah you took it all, you took it all away
And now I can’t even see,
What’s standing there between you and me

Nothing has ever been so wrong
Since you came along, and drew me on and on
And I should have never let you hear
Kept to myself my fear, never show my tears

And you took it all, you took it all away
Yeah you took it all, you took it all away
And now I can’t even see
What is standing there between you and me
And now I can’t even see
What is standing there between you and me

Now, you’ve never been so scared
You can’t go anywhere
You just sit and stare
And I’m restless like before
And I’m not keeping score, but I’ll leave you to your war

But you took it all, you took it all away
Yeah you took it all, you took it all away
And now I can’t even see
What is standing there between you and me
And now I can’t even see
What is standing there between you and me
Standing there between you and me
Standing there between you and me
Track Name: To Love You
To Love You

I know that the songs you write are all about me
I know that you’re fallin, it’s so easy to see
I can see it in your eyes, it’s no mystery
I wish I could give you everything that you want from me

I kissed you when you ran away, far across the land
I kissed you ‘cause I didn’t know if you’d be coming back
You’ve been carrying this flame from miles away
But my heart is too broken to love you this way

So give me time to figure out
What this love is all about
You’re worth too much to mess it up
So give me time, give me time to love you

I know that the songs you write are lonely and cold
I know in the night time you’re so easy to hold
I wish that you could see how perfect it could be
Walkin’ down the same path just you and me

If I could give you time to figure out
Would you come to know without a doubt
We could beat the odds or break the rules
And I will try to give you time to love me

Well now the words are spoken, I guess the deed is done
I wait for you to answer, I wait for you to run

No I told you once, I need to look within
Need time to mend this broken heart and be myself again

So give me time to figure out what this love is all about
You’re worth too much to mess it up
So give me time, give me time, to love you
Track Name: 'Bout You
‘Bout You

Tell me why it seems so far
From here to where you are
Only days, only mountains and rain
To be in your arms again

Your face is gone from my memory
Only in photos do you see me
But your voice, it can carry far
Through years and years apart

And I’m fighting urges to get on the road
And you’re telling me that you’re feeling so old

Come rescue me I want you to
Come how you will, just come soon
I can’t take many more nights just thinking ‘bout you

Find me here in this darkening room
Here in the dust and the gloom
Take me away to bright sunshine
We’ll let the road give us some piece of mind

I’m fighting urges to get on that road
And you’re telling me that you’re feeling so old

So come rescue me I want you to
Come how you will, just come soon
I can’t take many more nights just thinking ‘bout you
And I can’t take many more nights just hoping
And I can’t take many more nights . . .
Just thinking ‘bout you
