Track Name: A Prelude
Late to know
Which way to go
Where the cold wind blows

Fate will flow
And it will show
Lonely dirt road home
Track Name: Boomerang
We often knew we weren't for each other
We often knew we weren't going far
Tales of deception and stories of anger
And love and its balance have gone to one side

We often knew the city was danger
We often knew this home was all wrong
Words can't take back what let me to you
An act can go far but not far enough

Boomerang

Fate has a way of giving you passing
And luck has a way of finding you more
Your eyes like a tiger but soft as a feather
My world has changed by opening doors

Boomerang
Track Name: Criminal
Is it me or just notions
Have I gone into deep
Should I sleep
Do I run back and tell
them all it's me

Can you please cut
my heart out
You know it doesn't beat
Can you please stop this
madness because I do not see

Across this very ocean
Beneath this very sea
Lies the truth of criminal
True to you and me

Plain to see we are all damned
For what we've come to be
Paid to sell others' own hell
Victims all are we
Track Name: Under The Gun
Faced only a few
Aces, spades and 2’s
If only they knew
Draw, call, and crack

Not going back
Gonna make my move
What could I do?
Win or lose

Coffee housing a suit
While tangled up in you
Cold deck is singing to
A flush that soaks right through

Not going back
Gonna make my move
What could I do?
Why would I choose?

Folding or Holding Under the Gun

2 to 1 I've fallen under
2 to 1 I come undone
2 to 1 I've fallen under
2 to 1 I lost and run

Smoke covers the room
Whiskey Piano blues
Fate is too soon
No time to choose

Not going back
Gonna make my move
What could I do?
Why would I choose?

Folding or Holding Under the Gun

2 to 1 I've fallen under
2 to 1 I come undone
2 to 1 I've fallen under
2 to 1 I lost and run

2 to 1 I've fallen under
2 to 1 I come undone
2 to 1 I've fallen under
2 to 1 I lost and run
Track Name: Lay It Down
Been a long time since
I've seen you here
Having a laugh and a grin
A way of knowing it's all down hill
A long long time coming

No way of knowing
Where we are going
Lay it down

Been a long time since
I've seen your face
Talking of life stories
A way of knowing it's all long gone
The way you used to show it

No way of knowing
Where we are going
Lay it down

And I will say good-bye
Let you wonder why
You thought you'd make me cry
It was all a lie
You can't tear me down before
I hit the ground
Lay it down, lay it
Track Name: Can I Sleep In Your Arms
Can I sleep in your arms, tonight, lady
It's so cold lyin' here all alone
And I have no holds to hold on you
I assure you, I'll do you no wrong
I don't know why, but the one I love left me
Left me lonely and cold and so weak
And I need someone's arms to hold me
Till I'm strong enough to get back on my feet
Can I sleep in your arms, tonight, lady
It's so cold lyin' here all alone
And I have no holds to hold on you
I assure you, I'll do you no wrong
Track Name: We Can Dream
Dear Love
I have come to hold on to you
Dear Love
I have come to show love to you
Dear Love
I have come to sing something to you

Dear Love
I will stand beside you always
Dear Love
I will walk along with you always
Dear Love
I will sit right by you

Close your eyes
We can walk together
Close your eyes
We can dream forever

Dear Love
I will say goodbye to you some day
Dear Love
I will say one last time I love you
Dear Love
I will smile upon you
Track Name: Dying To Get By
Close eyes Dear
I'm thinking about where to go
I'm chasing the sunset tonight
I'm laughing and racing with you by my side
Up hills and down ditches we fight

I've been swimming in this so alone
Captive to your only poem
I've been living with nothing to hold
Only to words you should know

Where are we and what have you
Done with my mind
I'm stuck in this shameful design
For reasons to chase you
For reasons to hide
Am I the one dying to get by

Or maybe it's alright to leave it behind
It tastes better every time
Or maybe I'm frightened of all that I hide
I guess I'm just dying to get by
Track Name: An Epilogue
Seasons have changed and exposed
Where the story goes
Time be told and it will show
Where the cold wind blows
