Track Name: Dirty Mouth
I love your dirty mouth
‘cause all the things that you say.
I respect your dirty mind
‘cause all the games that you play.

Don’t change your attitude.
Oh, baby don’t be rude.
You tease my heart, and you tease my soul.
Give me lovin’ when I ask.
Don’t change your style of hair.
Don’t change the clothes you wear.
Wanna be your man, do the best I can, and keep my heart inside your hand.

Don’t make me beg again.
You have me down on my knees.
Oh just put your mind at ease ... can’t wait to see.
Unlock these chains set me free.

Don’t change the way you move.
Oh, baby I’ve wanted to.
Want to pick you up just to lay you down
Won’t breathe again ‘til I hear the sound
of your Dirty Mouth.
Oh, baby lets go down.
Wanna smother you and cover you with all the love that you can stand

I want all of your body to stay.
Cause I wanna play it all night and all day.
Oh come stay with me tonight.
Come lay with me. Do whatever feels right.
And just take it.
Just take it.
Take every part of me.
Keep it.
Oh keep it.
Do whatever you please.

Oh, baby I’ve wanted to.
Wanna pick you up just to lay you down.

of your Dirty Mouth.
Oh, baby lets go down.
Want to smother you, and cover you with all the love that you can stand.

I want all of your body to stay

Track Name: Death of Me
Oh, you were the death of me
when I was your man.
You know I’ve gotta keep moving
oh, as fast as I can.
And I don’t want to keep you
from living a lie.
Don’t want to deceive you
oh, but baby I tried.
Go ‘head.

Keep me in your daydream.
Keep me in your daydream.

And I’ve got not problems
with walking away.
Yeah she’s got the hard job
of trying to keep me to stay.
You know that we’ve got no problems
with you checking us out.
Don’t bother us baby.
Oh, yeah cause we’ve got no doubt.
Go ‘head,

Oh, I’m all out of love for you.
Oh, no longer have eyes for you.
Go ‘head.

Oh yes babe I’ve got problems.
You know that I do.
Well I know that you’re crazy.
Well that’s my problem with you.

Oh, I sure tried to love you
the best that I could.
Oh, I think you should go now.
Oh, I wish that you would.
Go ‘head.

Cause I’m all out of love for you.
Oh, no longer have eyes for you.

Oh, I’m ‘bout to lose my mind.
You’ve got to take your time.
I’m ‘bout to lose control.
You’ve got to let me go.
Oh, keep me in you daydream.

One, two...
How can I make it last forever?
How can I live oh with this pain?
I know I’m hard sometimes to deal with.
You were the death of me in vain.
You know I got so many problems.
Oh, that I’ve gotta let you go.
And then you cut me with the back of your heart.
And then you slapped me with the back of you hand.
Ahh keep me in you daydream.

Cause I’m all out of love for you.
Track Name: Shoe 2 Drop
I’ve been waiting on the proverbial bat
to knock some sense into me …
to knock some sense into my head.
Now I’m standing on the verge of middle-age.
Nothing to show but my kung-fu grip,
oh, and my nicotine-stained soul.
What’s a man supposed to do?

With all this constant need for tit for tat ...
But you and I baby we’ve already been through that.
My mind is racing and it just won’t stop.
Guess I’m waiting on the other shoe to drop.

Well, I’ve been waiting for my life to begin
to slap me out of this dream …
to slap some shit into my head.
Not standing on the side watching it fly away.
Nothing to show but my worn-out hands.
Oh, and this sticky, green-stained soul.
What’s a man supposed to do?

With all this constant need for tit for tat ...
But you and I baby we’ve already been through that.
My mind is racing and it just won’t stop.
Guess I’m waiting on the other shoe to drop.

No more waiting for the day to arrive.
It’s time to do or die.
It’s time to get this shit in my head.
‘Cause I’m standing on the verge of middle-age.
Something to show for my devilish ways
oh, and this music in my damn soul.
Whats a man supposed to do?

With all this constant need for tit for tat ...
But you and I baby we’ve already been through that.
My mind is racing and it just won’t stop.
Guess I’m waiting on the other shoe to drop.
Track Name: Baby Come Home
I’ve gotta find a way to keep you.
I never meant to do you wrong.
Let me be the one to love you.
You know I’ve been here all along.
I’ve gotta find a way to hold you.
‘cause your body it sets me free.
Well I love you, and I need you, and oh I miss you.
… do anything for you to be with me.

You can find me.
I’m down the road.
Why did leave me?
I’ll never know.
Please believe me
when I say to you.
Oh, please baby come home.
Please come home.

Oh can’t you see the things I’m doing?
Don’t you know that you’re my air?
And if you take away my heartbeat
don’t pretend you ever really cared.
I’ve got painful things inside of me,
and she’s the one that put ‘em there.
But I love her, and I need her, and oh I miss her.
… do anything for you to be with me

Oh you can find me.
I’m down the road.
Why did you leave me?
I’ll never know.
Please believe me
when I say to you.
Oh please baby come home.
Baby, please come home.
Baby, please come home.
Momma, please come home.
Baby, please come home.

I never meant to cause you no trouble.
I never meant to do you wrong.
Why don’t you come back
oh baby and hold me?
Why can’t you be here
Oh, by my side?
What did I do wrong
oh, baby to lose you?
Why don’t you come back home,
my native-soul?

You know I’ve been the one that’s tempted
to gon’ and walk on out the door.
But I can’t go.
I won’t go.
You know I need you.
And Baby I’ll be here some more.
You can find me.
I’m down the road.
Oh baby come home.
Track Name: Memory Lane
Don’t go down Memory Lane
cause she ain’t ever coming back again,
and all I’ve got is this love going on.
Don’t creep back into my mind.
Now’s not the place, and it sure ain’t the time.
Where were you when I was all alone?

I’ve got no reason to lie.
The things she does oh they make me so high
and I can’t keep her smile out of my head.
Back then what I wanted to say
is baby don’t leave cause I need you to stay.
But I was too proud, and I let you walk away

But you always said to remember
the good times and forget about the bad.
It’s hard baby not to remember
all the things that we used to say,
and all of our love at the end of the day

Don’t go down Memory Lane cause I can’t keep on playing these games.
There’s no drug that can wash her out my mind.
At night when I close my eyes I can still hear
your voice ‘neath the summer sky.
Really wish you’d go and get out of my dreams.

You always said to remember
the good times and forget about the bad.
But it’s hard baby not to remember
all the things that we used to say,
and all of our love at the end of the day.

But I can’t walk away from you.
No I can’t stay away from you.
Why are you so free, oh with your love?
Why do I pretend I’m all your thinking of?
How do I go on, oh baby without you?
What did I do wrong
that turned you into a scar on Memory Lane?
Track Name: Speak Out
Oh these eyes they see a lot of things in the dark.
Don’t come around here babe and light up a spark.
The lies and all the terrible things that we do ...
We’d all be better if we could speak the truth.

I don’t know what it is that we can’t find.
Maybe it’s a heartbeat, or maybe a spine.
If we get another life to choose,
would you do the same thing,or start anew?

Believe in what you’re saying.
Be true to what you need.
Speak Out, oh if you’re hurting.
Please don’t ... don’t let us bleed.

Just go about your way don’t get in mine.
Just walk the other way and we’ll be just fine.
If we only had our crystal ball,
we could see how it all ends, before we fall.

Believe in what you’re saying.
Be true to what you need.
Speak Out if you’re hurting.
Please don’t … don’t let us bleed.

Whoa, believe in what you’re saying.
Be true to what you need.
Speak Out if you’re hurting.
Please don’t be the one to let us fade.
Don’t let us bleed ... oh no ... oh no.
Track Name: Mr. Sunshine
Oh, there’s a man who has no better mood.
He can not get it clean.
The emptiness, and chains of solitude ...
it’s in his day’s routine.
Oh the night will cure some of the pain,
but only for a while.
Oh, the day will surely come again.
Put away your smile.

Oh Mr. Sunshine,
well, you’re not happy here.
Oh, Mr. Sunshine,
put away your fear.

Oh, could it be some form of new disease,
or something from your past?
Oh, don’t break the bottle on the wall.
We’ll pour it in a glass.
Oh, this tide - he feels it closing in
cutting off his air.
Oh, don’t drown in the waves of solitude;
In the ocean of despair.

Now Mr. Sunshine,
well, you’re not happy here.
Oh Mr. Sunshine
put away your fear.
Track Name: Easy as 1,2,3
Here we go...

Oh, well the first time
I was a little scared.
But the second time,
I didn’t really care.
Oh, the hands-on experience is what I needed.
And by the third time,
I was a veteran.
Still had a lot to learn,
but I was good at it.
And by the fourth time,
it was as easy as one, two, three.

Now tomorrow the sun ... sun will rise.
And a new day will soon baby ... soon surprise.
Just keep all our names out of your mouth.
We’re just some good funky boys making noise coming straight out the South.

Now there’s a long way
between the now and then.
And just a short time
til I’ll be back again.
So try to hold on
to the sand as it flies away.
… don’t have to wait around.
Oh, babe but hurry back.
Not trying to rush you now.
The clocks moving fast.
We’ve got a lot to do
and not enough time babe in the day.

Now tomorrow the sun ... sun will rise
And a new day will soon baby ... soon surprise
Just keep all our names out of your mouth.
We’re just some good funky boys making noise coming straight out the South.

Well now babe I know the first time
I was a little scared.
Oh but now the second time
I didn’t really care.
The hands-on experience is what I needed
And by the third time,
I was a pro at this.
I don’t need a hand
babe I can handle it.
And by the fourth time
it was as easy as one, two, three.

Now tomorrow the sun ... sun will rise.
And a new day will soon … soon surprise.
Just keep all our names out of your mouth.
We’re just some good funky boys making noise coming straight out the south.

Take me back to one.
I got the feeling inside of me.
Oh, easy as your one, two three.
Well, come and take a ride with me.
Oh, let the music set you free,
And we’re all out of time.
Track Name: Tomorrow I'll Be Gone
Open your eyes if you want to see.
The kinds of places that you’d rather be.
Open your heart if you want to feel
the kind of love that you know is real.
Y’all feel me.?

I don’t have the strength inside to tell you how I feel,
And I can’t go on living this ... this life I knows not real.

So tomorrow I’ll be gone.
Oh tomorrow I’ll be out of here.
Don’t tell me bout your wants.
Oh, don’t tell me what you want to hear.
Cause tomorrow I’ll be Gone.
Oh, tomorrow I’ll be out of here.
Don’t tell me bout your wants.
Oh, don’t tell me what you want to hear.

Open your mind if you can’t believe.
This hurts me more ... more than you can see.
It’s been a long time coming for sure.
I’m just ‘gon get my things; be out the back door.
Y’all hear me?

Cause I don’t have the strength inside to tell you how I feel.
And I can’t go on living this ... this life I knows not real.

Tomorrow I’ll be gone.
Oh tomorrow I’ll be outta here.
Don’t tell bout your wants.
Oh, don’t tell me what you want to hear.
Cause tomorrow I’ll be gone.
Oh tomorrow I’ll be outta here.
Don’t tell me bout your wants.
Oh, don’t tell me what you want to hear.
Track Name: Long Way to Go
Stars are out. It’s a lonely highway.
I’d pick you up if you’re a-going my way.
Don’t want to have to make this drive alone.
Maybe I can use the time ...
oh, the fresh air to clear my mind
I’ve got a long way to go.

Moon is bright and gonna light up my way.
There’s a lot of things I wish I could say.
There’s not another soul out on the road.
I could’ve stayed with you,
but after all the things we’d been through
we had a long way to go.

Just because it’s over
doesn’t mean our lives are done.
Just because I’m leaving
doesn’t mean that you have won.
I never meant to make you cry.
I never meant to do you wrong.
Just because you thought I would
doesn’t mean babe that I can stay.
Cause I’ll be gone.

My eyes are heavy, but the road keeps going.
It’s cold enough that it might start snowing.
But my hearts all ready frozen as you know.
I couldn’t be the man
to stay and be a part of your plans.
We had a long way to go.

Sun is rising on a brand new highway.
I hook a left, and then continue on straight.
I’ll pick you up if you’ve got some place to go.
I’m almost far enough.
I’ve got a brand-new life to set-up
Not much further to go.

Just because it’s over
doesn’t mean our lives are done.
Just because I’m leaving
doesn’t mean that you have won.
I never meant to make you cry.
I never meant to do you wrong.
Just because you thought I would
doesn’t mean babe that I can stay.
Cause I’ll be gone.
