Track Name: At Any Cost
There in the sun
She's laughing loud and having fun
Talking about the mountains she has climbed
and the ribbons inside
And all I can do
Is tap my foot and wait til 2
When I can be king of my little world again

No you won't
No you won't
Kick me when I'm down
But I'm always down
And I just stared and sat
when you said I wasn;t where it's at
But you wouldn't know where it was
If you were tied down in the mud
On your back looking up at a sign that said
You are here
Let's start again

We'll show them all
One day we'll be ten feet tall
And no one will ever tell us to relax
These are just the facts
With our sights set high
The limit will be the blue sky
And we will never think back on these days again

No they won't
No they won't
Tell us right from wrong
cause we don't have long
To smile and have a blast
We're told it goes by too fast
And we won't live as they choose to
With a window as their view
Wondering what could've been
What world are they living in?

Now my hair is gray
At least what's left of it today
But my smile still comes to me easily
I've lived the hell out of life
I've raised my kids
I love my wife
And those who scorned me tell me they believed all along
Track Name: Hold On
All I have to give is my song
You found my switch now
Turn it on
the nighttime never lasted this long
Hold On to me
Hold On

Where do we go from here
I'd have an answer if the answer was clear
Don't allow your doubts to interfere
Hold On to me
Hold On

the stars are forming pictures overhead
You study the cracks on the sidewalk instead
It's passing you by
Don;t let me pass you by

See things from other sides
Understand what you can find
Swallow your precious pride
Hold On to me
Hold On

Dive into the unknown
Call a strange land home
You'll never be alone
Hold On to me
Hold On

the stars are forming pictures overhead
You study the cracks on the sidewalk instead
It's passing you by
Don;t let me pass you by

All I have to give is my song
You found my switch now
Turn it on
the nighttime never lasted this long
Hold On to me
Hold On

Dive into the unknown
Call a strange land home
You'll never be alone
Hold On to me
Track Name: Until The End
I've been waiting
I've been patient
But the view from the side could not justify the feeling
It's been raining
On this painting
Oh, the colors might run but I'll never leave your side

If I should live Until The End
Would your sweet love come in
I'm much too tired of wonderin'
I've been on this road for years
Is the destination near
I'll keep rollin a million miles from here

Oh you smile
Like a child
And I can't find the words to bring you home to my world
Give me something
Let me know where you're at
I can never imagine ever turning back
Cause I know
I know it's real
I know I lie awake and wonder what I've done
To deserve such a sentence
For a crime
Of my heart
I never will repent

If I should live Until The End......

If I should live Until The End......
Track Name: Goodman Brown
I am an honest working man
Been born and still living in this town
I have no enemies at all
But I don't care much for Goodman Brown

I hear him call my name when I sleep at night
Gotten to be about every third day
Wants me to walk into the night
He wants to turn my blue skies to grey.

Well Goodman Brown is here
Saying why don't you come out your door
Well, Goodman, I know that's what you want me to do
But me, I said, I don't know for sure

I hear him call my name when I sleep at night
Gotten to be about every third day
Wants me to walk into the night
He wants to turn my blue skies to grey.

Goodman looked puzzled, yes he did
Took a few steps away before he turned
What a beautiful night to come with me, my son
What a beautiful night to see all your idols burned

I hear him call my name when I sleep at night
Gotten to be about every third day
Wants me to walk into the night
He wants to turn my blue skies to grey.

Now, Goodman Brown, I said it in the past
I don;t want to see you round here anymore
With this said, I pray he lets me sleep now
Cause the Good Lord knows he hasn't let me sleep before

I hear him call my name when I sleep at night
Gotten to be about every third day
Wants me to walk into the night
He wants to turn my blue skies to grey.
Track Name: As You Were
People these days aren't just who they used to
As I lay here in my hammock by the sea
And New York City never loved you in return
When exactly are they ever gonna learn?
You could be
Eternally
A double shot of inspiration for those without a voice
It's your choice
You're not alone
The straight and narrow never brought a spaceman home

And they can check their mailbox 5, 6 times a day
It's not what's going there it's when you dream away
It's when you take that dive
It's when you feel alive
It's when you learn your meant to do more than survive
Look at me
I don't see
Another way to go about my unwritten plan
And I don't need a map
But I could use a nap
The salt air opens up my brain
As You Were...
Track Name: Mine
Do that dance for me
Show me all it's worth
Right now, you're all that matters on this Earth
Senorita dressed in white
Brighter than the moon
And hotter than the midday sun in June

Oh I got this feeling
That I've reached the finish line
Guess it's time to stop this running
And start making
Start making you
Mine

Oh, she caught me staring
But I can't look away
I'm working on the perfect thing to say
Hello, how are you tonight
all I want is you
to feel these loving feeling that I do

Oh I got this feeling
That I've reached the finish line
Guess it's time to stop this running
And start making
Start making you
Mine

She doesn't speak the language
But she smiles just the same
I take her hand and lead my girl away
Midnight eases into dawn
Everyone's a blur
I'm waking up tomorrow next to her

Oh I got this feeling
That I've reached the finish line
Guess it's time to stop this running
And start making
Start making you
Mine
Track Name: Chapter In My Book
Highway calls me in my sleep
Things the same I just can't keep
Shake the 8 ball up and drop it on the floor
Maybe I can stay a little more
Or maybe I'm just looking for an excuse
Don't think I'm trying to cut you loose
Don't think I mean to leave you behind
But you've gotta look for something before you can find

And I won't forget this Chapter In My Book
I'll keep a marker here for when I want to look
back at all the times
Listen when I say
I'm going for a while
But not going away

Maybe it's just better if you go
Then when I leave you won;t exactly know
we can pretend that I'm still right down the street
But we're just too busy everyday to meet
Or maybe we can but over the phone
Voices keeping us from being alone
Stories told from afar across a wire
Will be the extra gust of wind upon my fire

And I won't forget this Chapter In My Book
I'll keep a marker here for when I want to look
back at all the times
Listen when I say
I'm going for a while
But not going away

In the spotlight without a net
No room in my pocket to carry regret
No room for tricks up my clinging sleeve
With you all here, you know
It's hard for me to leave
But I have to go, and I know it'll be ok
We're smart enough and strong enough to find our own way
And I have no doubt we'll figure out just what it's all about
And like I said my friend I'll be back again to give you a shout.

And I won't forget this Chapter In My Book
I'll keep a marker here for when I want to look
back at all the times
Listen when I say
