Hurricane 03:09
I’ve got a fever inside of me Ain’t got no fix No remedy I’m in the middle Of a hurricane In the middle Of a whole new game I’ve been lonely But now so blessed To know sweet love And tenderness So sweet this emotion my walls are coming down To know that love Is all around Yeah It’s all around And I’ve been waiting such a long time Losing more hope with every stride Oh to love oneself is a decent thing but we were meant for bigger things Now I’m in the middle I’m in the middle In the Middle Of a Hurricane Of a Hurricane Of a Hurricane

Without You 03:25
I’ve been driving for too long I keep thinking that I see you in my rearview mirror of my car I’ve come so far now without you but the more I look back the less I see of you and the more I see, of what I wanted you to be I’ve wasted all my time thinking of all the nights you wanted to be with anyone but me But without you, it’s clear to see that when I was with you, I was anyone but me And even though, I still think of you I know I’m better off, without you Back in that old town you’re probably with some guy, you barely, you barely even know laughing at all his jokes with a whole lot of folks but that don’t matter much to me Cause even though, I get lonely sometimes I was tired of you, and all your silly little crimes And odds are, we’re both bound to change but girl I’d rather change, without you And even though, I still think of you I know I’m better off, without you I’m living without, i’m living without you and I’m better off, I’m better off I’m living without you, I’m living without you and I’m better off But Even though, I don’t really know At least I think, I’ve better without you

Let Go 03:35
Pocket full of dreams Feels like I’m still seventeen All alone on this road The wilderness starts to feel like home And It’s coming round again Like a trusted friend Hoping I can find that youthful glow And I’m holding to that dream Bursting at the seems The future is something I don’t know So I don’t let go No I won’t let go Heart full of dust And a head that’s full of clouds When the going get tough Turn the radio down And It’s coming round again Like a trusted friend Hoping I can find that youthful glow And I’m holding to that dream Bursting at the seems The future is something I don’t know So I don’t let go No I won’t let go And I hope to fill a hole Relinquish all control Hoping that I’ll find new fields to sow And build a better man To go against your plan I can’t help but feel this debt I owe So I don’t let go No I won’t let go I just can’t let go I don’t want to let go

Well he opens the door to a hazy mist with a guitar in hand this is his chance he just can’t miss and he don’t need no band he’s got a day time job and a little living quarters but he wants it all he ain’t got no borders so now he’s working on the weekend tryin’ to make it big Well he’s workin on the weekend playin on that old guitar Yeah he’s working on the weekend up in a smoky bar he’s playin for tips and a bottle of booze he’s workin on the weekend, with nothin’ to lose Well he turns down the bass and lets that guitar wail And the people take notice And they put money in his pail Well he’s movin and a groovin And he don’t know why All he knows how to do is to Juke and jive And now he’s workin on the weekend Havin the time of his life

I’m not really sure What I’m doing wrong I can’t keep on anymore How does one carry on Seems like I’m falling faster in the race called life Feels like I’ve got a new master Cutting me with a knife But you Baby you You got my head turned round And my feet back on the ground And now I feel brand new And you Baby you I was lost a sea But honey you found me And I love the view And baby runnin is useless There’s no escaping fate And people can be so ruthless But baby you ain’t And I know it Feels like I’ve known for awhile I swear you’ve got fireworks In that smile But you Baby you You got my head turned round And my feet back on the ground And now I feel brand new And you Baby you I was lost a sea But honey you found me And I love the view

Now I get to thinkin’ Everytime we start drinkin’ It seems like everybody’s got themselves a bit too much time And I get to talkin’ As we both start walkin’ It seems the line isn’t really, really really all that fine Between the highest highs and the lowest lows Everybody comes, but few ever go Few ever go Oh don’t you know Well it seems crazy But come on baby Let’s sneak into a concert and have ourselves a great big time We’ll have a drink or two (or 3) Before the night is through But we keep it in check cause we don’t ever want to cross that line And once we used to go out no one ever really used to mind But now those same people won’t give us the time It seems like all we ever do is spend our money without a single care ain’t that funny In a world full of clothes we’ve all got nothing to wear Well I hate provin’ What I ain’t been doin’ But it seems like every single day I gotta justify my mind And it’s ok now That we don’t know how Or why everybody seems to want to be so intertwined In the highest high and the lowest low Everybody comes, but few ever go Few ever go Oh don’t you know You gotta gotta get a little low Before you get up high Up there in the sky You gotta get down low You gotta get down low You gotta get down low You gotta get down low

Hey Lady Come on pretty baby I’ve been having so much fun out here in the sun but it’s gettin late I want to grab a bite to eat with you And maybe catch a movie too But you say hey, now just wait But I don’t need your good intentions I just want to be your man and there’s no time for False pretentions But I just need your love, i just need your love Today You said baby Come on now baby I know you mean well But I still can’t tell If I’m your lady Why don’t you come on over here And let me whisper in your ear The kinda things that a man wants to hear But I don’t need your good intentions I just want to be your man and there’s no time for False pretentions But I just need your love, i just need your love Today

You came round just the other day said you came here for to sit and play on an old 6 string yeah you played the part but all you were playin was a beating heart yeah all you were playin was a beating heart on that front porch playing with a bow in your hair a bow in your hand movin through the air scratch on a fiddle an old time tune Ain’t nothing better than the month of June yeah ain’t nothing better than the month of June And we played all night singing in the moonlight But something not right Well You wanted a lover and I wanted a friend but that ain’t how true love begins You played the game, but you played it to lose But life’s too short, to pick and choose Oh life’s too short, to pick and choose Well you stuck around on into the fall waitin for me to hear that call The smile you wore was fadin fast Not every good thing was made to last Girl not every good thing was made to last And it’s alright Don’t think twice We’ll be just fine Give it some time Life is full of deep regrets But none of them are worth the sweat Everybody’s got their own set of blues But life’s too short to pick and choose Oh life’s too short to pick and choose
9.
Too many years Of my life I have followed you around Took miles to see That my life Would move to a different sound But you know...you know You were wrong And i ain’t afraid to tell you I was wrong Can’t you see can’t you see We were wrong Be honest please i’m just tryin Tryin to be We were just kids Coloring dreams Of plans before 25 Oh but those were just dreams And it’s time you realized That your dreams Aren’t the same as mine You were wrong And i ain’t afraid to tell you I was wrong Can’t you see can’t you see We were wrong Be honest please i’m just tryin Tryin to be And I, I ain’t tryin change ya And I, Ain’t sayin what to do But all, I want you to know is I love you, and oh baby, Just be true You were wrong And i ain’t afraid to tell you I was wrong Can’t you see can’t you see We were wrong Be honest please i’m just tryin Tryin to be
