Track Name: Rip Roarin' Love
Hold on to me tight, and brace for the collision
We’ll be lucky if we make it out alive
Take a chance on me now, if you can find the courage
And I swear to god I’ll never let you down

‘Cause I been stock piling this love and I’m
Never gonna give up
’Til I convince that I’ve go all that it takes
And it’ll be us against the world if you just
Say you’ll be my girl
And they’re never gonna stop this rip roaring’ love
Rip roarin’ love

I know there’s a road out there, safe and more well traveled
That’ll get you there without a scrape or bruise
But soon you will learn
Always a chance you can get yourself burned
If you wanna be in the fast lane riding’ high

‘Cause I keep stock piling this love and I’m
Never gonna give up
Until I win you over despite your best defense
And it’ll be us against the world and if you
Say you’ll be my girl
‘Cause there ain’t no way to stop this rip roaring’ love
Rip roarin’ love
Track Name: So Much Good Right Here
I spent so much time worried about the future
And if my irons in the fire would ever glow
But change is truly the one and only constant
So I take my chances and try to let it go

I’ll never live in fear
‘Cause there’s so much good right here
Count my blessings every day that I wake up
I know I have the choice
So I speak with my own voice
Let fate decide which way the tide will go

So many folks I know they’re growing older
Searching everywhere for that hidden pile of gold
Now they’re looking back
And see all they missed on the side of the tracks
And the trappings of the fortunes bring them down

Don’t ever take it all for granted
You can saddle up and start making your own way, everyday
I’d be a damn fool
If I didn’t make all my own rules
And shuck this burden I’ve been carrying for so long

I used to justify direction and all my best laid plans
Like the wheel wasn’t resting firmly between my own two hands
But I know better now, and I’ll make it up somehow
Gonna make it right somehow

Don’t ever live in fear
‘Cause there’s so much good right here
Count my blessings everyday that I wake up
I know I have the choice
So I speak with my own voice
Let fade decide which way the tide will go
And shuck that burden I been carrying for so long
Track Name: Kicking and Screaming
Swore I’d never make the same mistakes
‘Cause the pain before was so much more than I could ever take
We learn the right ways by trying out all the wrong
Gotta go where we’re not wanted to find out where we belong

Whenever I’m alone and afraid inside my wilderness
Then these goddamn truths I’ve been told turn into to lies

Melody
Just give me one more dance
Melody
Just give me one more chance

Strayed too far to see my own missteps
Always needing someone to validate every turn I taking next
Have I lied too many times, mislead myself?
But I’m ready to risk everything despite the hand that I’ve been dealt

Whenever I’m alone and afraid inside my wilderness
And when I let you down it comes as no surprise
When sentimental thoughts fall short of my calculation
You talk me, kicking and screaming down

Melody
Just give me one more dance
Melody
Just give me one more dance
After everything we’ve been through hope I deserve another chance

Melody
Just give me one more dance
Melody
Just give me one more dance
After everything we’ve been through hope I deserve another chance
‘Cause you talk me, kicking and screaming down
Yeah you talk me, kicking and screaming down
Track Name: Simpleness of Things
Looks like you’ve got it all figured out this time
Stacked and separated the pieces, each in their own place
Threw away the scorecard, wiped the slate blank
Brushed out all the tangles

Ditched the old notebook, set it ablaze
Scraps of paper like fireflies, swirling around
Traded everything you had, in exchange for your sanity
Wasn’t easy to let go

‘Cause she loves, the simpleness of things
And her dream’s been, circling the ring
Now a new beginning’s been waiting in the wings
For so long

Swerved around the road blocks, never hitting the brakes
Ignored all the jealous fools, that tried to dissuade you
Everybody wants a piece, every minute of your life
But you could see through it all

‘Cause she loves, the simpleness of things
And her dream’s been, circling the ring
And a new beginning’s been waiting in the wings
For so long

You shook it off so easily
Punched your card and never looked back
You made it through so seamlessly
Like you always knew the place to call home

‘Cause she loves, the simpleness of things
And her dream’s been, circling the ring
And a new beginning’s been waiting in the wings
For so long
Track Name: Promise You'll Come Back
She stole so much from me that day
Broke her promise and ran away
Says she's got too many stories left to write
Groove worn in the bed she used to lay in
Trying so hard to stop my eyes from raining down
Never thought I'd have to start all over

Now I’m outside screaming but nothing's coming out
Can't remember what we were fighting about
Just promise that you’ll still come back to me

Resigned to the fact she was bound to wander
A tryst with a fella in the town over yonder
What was it he could give you that I couldn't give?
Ready to roll up my sleeves and put the work in
So hard to know where I'm supposed to begin
Every episode seems to sting me in a new kind of way, hey hey

In my arms at night and when I wake up you're gone
Making me crazy where did I go wrong?
Just promise you’ll still come back to me

I sit and pray that a woman can change her ways
But in the back of my mind I know it's all in vain
Won’t you please, come back to me

I know I gotta stop all this banging my head against the same wall every night
And it would be so simple if it wasn’t so hard, to stop myself from loving you

So I’m outside screaming but nothing's coming out
Can't remember what we were fighting about
Just promise that you’ll still come back to me

In my arms at night and when I wake up you're gone
Making me crazy where did I go wrong?
Won’t you please come back to me

When you push me away it makes me want you more
I'm not afraid of getting bruised and torn
Just promise that you’ll still come back to me

I sit and pray that a woman can change her ways
But in the back of my mind I know it's all in vain
Just promise that you'll still come back to me
Track Name: Footprints in the Mud
There I stood, waist high in my destruction
Looking for any sign that’s it’s all worth it
This pain-filled life and then it’s gone
Drifted off into the ether
Another lonely pair of footprints in the mud

They say no matter how well we live
Everybody’s gonna die alone
Fear in their eyes until the moment
When there’s no need to be afraid anymore
Slipping away into the darkness
Just a lonely pair of footprints in the mud

Such a misplaced sense of obligation
That we should carry this for all of our days
Or does the truth lie with the non-believers
Who refuse to see any other way

Empty in the silence
All those wetted eyes in their confusion
Falling back into the echo
Another lonely pair of footprints in the mud
Just a lonely pair of footprints in the mud

We won’t carry this around; no we won’t carry this around
No we won’t carry this for all of our days
