Track Name: Hurricane
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
Track Name: Without You
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
Track Name: Let Go
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
Track Name: Working on the Weekend
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
Track Name: Love the View
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
Track Name: Down Low (feat. Sara Middleton)
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
Track Name: Good Intentions (feat. Sara Middleton)
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
Track Name: Pick and Choose (feat. Jacob Johnson)
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
Track Name: Trying to Be (feat. Sara Middleton)
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
