To all the Kickstarters:

This record was made because of your generosity. Words cannot express how grateful I am for your friendship, belief and support with my music. The music industry has changed dramatically in the last decade and traditional record label support is hard to come by. To receive love and support like this, on a grassroots level, is incredible! Independent musicians now have a way to keep producing music, and that wouldn’t be possible without people like you. Thank you for everything, and I hope you get as much enjoyment out of this album as we had making it.

Track Name: Will You Come Back Home
Will you come back home, like you said you would
I am on my own, thought I never could
Find someone like you babe, now I’m dying here alone
I tried to call you, but the phone hung up
Now I'm lying here alone

Na na, na na na na
Now I’m lying here alone
Na na, na na na na

Will you come back home , I’m still waiting here
It’s been way too long, I just miss you dear
So how long you thinkin’ are you gonna be away
I tried to write you, but the post man said
It’s gonna be another day

Na na, na na na na
It’s gonna be another day
Na na, na na na na

Like the sun you will shine until it’s done
I can’t say how much longer you may stay away
How much longer?

Will you come back home, like you said you would
You are free to roam, but I wish you would
Pack your bags and leave quickly, catch the nearest plane
I will be there to meet you, pick you up and dance
No we’ll never be the same

Na na, na na na na
No we’ll never be the same
Na na, na na na na
Track Name: Out Of Here
I can’t deal with the day to day, closing in on me
I’ve had enough
No one said it could take so long, no one said it could be so wrong
But I should have known

Cause in this life you’ve gotta move on
Now the car is waiting and I’ve gotta get gone

So, hope you’ll be good,
Hope you’ll be fine
I’m getting out of here
And you won’t see me soon
I just can’t say how long I’ll be
That’s all right with me

You can see it every day, what they feel but never say
Their lives are staged
So many gone down that road, and you know that you reap what you sow yeah
They just don’t see

Cause in this life you’ve gotta move on
Now the car is waiting and I’ve gotta get gone

So, hope you’ll be good, hope you’ll be fine
I’m getting out of here
And you won’t see me soon, I just can’t say how long I’ll be
That’s all right with me

So just stand there and watch me go
I’ll prove you all wrong
I’m gonna say goodbye!
No, no, no, no

Hope you’ll be good, hope you’ll be fine
I’m getting out of here
And you won’t see me soon, I just can’t say how long I’ll be
That’s all right with me
Track Name: Brought My Love Down
You and me down by the water and I’m leaving town faster than a bullet but,
Everything you think you need, you know it will leave you soon
It’s times like these I can’t surrender swords and hearts tethered together but,
Everything you think you knew, you know it will leave you soon

Aie, Aie, Aie, Aie
I’ll test our love and I know we’ll make it through
Aie, Aie, Aie, Aie
I brought my love down
I brought my love down

I just set down across the border and times like these it seems a little harder cuz
Everything I think I knew, I know it will leave me soon
Movin’ on bruised and blue, can’t stop myself from thinking about you
Everything is changing now, shots rings through the wind and howl

Chorus*

You always said watch your own cuz I don’t wanna be alone
I wish I could have seen them grow but I don’t think I’m comin’ back home

I wish I could have seen you one last time
That our last dance, had been mine

Aie, Aie, Aie, Aie
Miss the love that I had inside you
Aie, Aie, Aie, Aie
I brought my love down
I brought my love down

Brought my love....
Track Name: Velvet Caroline
She gets by on rosé wine, Velvet Caroline
With a gaze so soft she’s often lost in a corner of her mind
At the light of day she’s a thought a way, all that I hold dear
Hey now girl it’s a crazy world, better keep me close behind

Breathe her in fast, let her down, let her go
A beauty like her will always shine
You better hold on, pack tight and get gone
Now she’s out to chase the sun
I know she’s not the only one, she’s just begun

Hey now the lights are on
Hey now the nights are long and on fire, on fire
She’s the one who never cared
Never stopped and never dared to say whatever’s on her mind
Oh my Caroline

Hey now the lights are on
Hey now the nights are long and on fire, on fire
I’m the one who always cared
Always stopped and never dare to say whatever’s on my mind,
Like my Caroline

Breath her in fast, let down, let her go
A beauty like her will always shine
You better hold on, pack tight and get gone
Now we’re out to chase the sun
I know we’re not the only one’s we’ve just begun

She gets by on rosé wine, Velvet Caroline
Track Name: Ride The Rails
There’s something about them old black trains
They lift me up when no one else can
I like to hear ‘em truckin’ through the wild country and the open blue

I would have been an old cowboy, I would have dressed in black
I would have stood with James and Kid, while they were blocking off the tracks
I would of put all those bricks into those empty sacks
And given all the people, the whole mess back

I wanna ride the rails
I wanna ride the rails
I wanna ride the rails
Oh every day and night I’ll ride them right

Pick me up on another wind, one that blows from the bold my friend,
I was taken in by the heart of a southern dream, I’ll be taken in soon as it can pump that steam
Everyday when I was young I’d be running by
Eye to eye, side by side

I wanna ride the rails
I wanna ride the rails
I wanna ride the rails
From East Omaha to Council Bluffs in the hot black night

There’s something about them old black trains, they lift me up when no one else can
I like to hear them truckin’ though that deep old country where the rivers run through
Every time when I would ride at night
I look up to my favorite sight, orange skies ahead

I wanna ride the rails
I wanna ride the rails
I wanna ride the rails
I wanna ride the rails
Track Name: Next To Me
Was it love that got me in this place
Was it the tender smile upon your face
Tell me that it’s not the time for the
Wishing wells and last goodbyes

Would you smile once more for me tonight
And I hope you just might
Would you stay here next to me

Would you dance along the cobblestones
Would you feel the presence in my bones
Let me go and never know
Just how much my love will show

So sing once more for me tonight
But I hope you just might
Would you stay here next to me

If tomorrow finds you somewhere else
Oh, and you know where I’ll be
Oh, and you know where I’ll be
For you to stay here next to me
Track Name: Clearing Arizona
I’m looking up though the clouds block my view
I know that it’s time, to leave you
Sun’s coming up and I’ve learned something new
Somehow I know, I’ve lost you

When there’s no use, it’s time to to let you loose
Stay here or go, I’ve gotta grow

Clearing Arizona, has opened my eyes
Clearing Arizona, and I’m on the rise
Buy that ticket, it’s a damn good ride

I’m at the top, I’m not coming down
You’ll never see my face around

When there’s no use, I set myself loose
Here and now, now I’m gone

Clearing Arizona, has opened my eyes
Clearing Arizona, and I’m on the rise
Buy that ticket, it’s a damn good ride

Here and now, now I’m gone

Clearing Arizona, has opened my eyes
Clearing Arizona, and I’m on the rise
Buy that ticket, it’s a damn good ride

It’s a damn good ride
It’s a damn good ride
Track Name: Leeza
Home is where I’m gone to see your eyes
I promise I’ll stay this time
Years have passed since we’ve held hands and danced
Underneath starry skies

So kick off your shoes you’ve got a heart to mend
You’ve got nothing to lose except the blues my friend
That’s why I’m coming back again

Love’s the only thing that’s right
Let me in to hold you tight
Leeza I’ll be seeing you
Tonight

La,la,la,la
La,la,la,la,la

Now that I see clear as day, and so life only goes to show
Why I’m coming home

Make me your own you won’t be all alone
Stand up and shout throw away your doubts
Leeza what I’m talking ‘bout

Love’s the only thing that’s right
Let me in to hold you tight
Leeza I’ll be seeing you
Tonight

La,la,la,la
La,la,la,la,la

Here he is, another boy
Racing home, with all his glory restored
There she is, another girl
That he loved for so many years

Now she’s mine, she’s mine, oh she’s mine!

C’mon let’s go, I’m feeling so in tune
You’ve got nothing to prove it’s all for you my love
Now I’m coming home

Love’s the only thing that’s right
Let me me in to hold you tight
Leeza let me take you out
Tonight

La,la,la,la
La,la,la,la,la

I’m coming home to you
Track Name: Make Me A Man
Make me a man, make me a friend
I was just waiting, waiting to see you again
Light of the stage, loves everyday
There ain’t no moment, no moment I wouldn’t remake

And if you give me time, I’ll give you all of mine
You make me feel alright, alright
Lend me your heart and hand
I swear I’ll do all I can
Make me a man, make me a man

I was the one who crawled, never knowing your love at all
You were the light that shined, down on it all
I would give all I can, just to make you understand
Make me a man, make me a man

Words are empty and useless as me
Give this love the chance to be

Make me a man, I’ll do all I can
I’ll stand up and sing, I’ll stand up and shout
I’ll be your man

There ain’t no words I can say, to show you I’m feeling this way
So I’ll just wait for you, another day
Let all your fears wash away, I’m telling you I’m here to stay
Make me a man, Make me a man

Make me a man
Track Name: I Can't Love You
Woke up to the music of your voice
I stay and listen as if I had a choice

Every time I come around to see you lookin’ so fine, But I know you can’t be mine
Besides we tried before, you had my heart but you wanted more
You tried to get us back on track, know i’ll never want you back
You’ve been there for me but...

I can’t love you
I can’t love you

You’ve been hanging round here way too long
I’m tired and leaving you and moving on

Every time you come around to see me lookin’ so down, But you know I can’t be yours
Besides we tried before you had my time but you wanted more
You tried to get me on my own, you could never be alone
Sorry but this thing’s through

I can’t love you
I can’t love you

Every time I wake, I tell you how I feel
You gotta let me know, what’s on your mind
What’s on your mind I know

You could never be alone
Sorry but this thing’s through

I can’t love you
I can’t love you
