Track Name: Unfolding
I hear thunder but it’s a voice
It says a word I’ve never heard before
I see a color, but I can’t look
‘Cause I’m a heartless outlaw and a crook

My heart won’t go if my mind’s not ready
And I won’t stay if you won’t stay here with me
And I can’t breathe if you won’t breathe into me

I feel lonely but I’m not sad
While you’re unfolding in my hands
Don’t tell me that a storm’s not comin’

I feel a cold front comin’ in
I can hear a noise but I don’t know what it is
It sounds like singing but it’s not
Then it sounds like screaming when suddenly it stops

My heart won’t go if my mind’s not ready
And I won’t stay if you won’t stay here with me
And I can’t breathe if you won’t breathe into me

Well I feel lonely but I’m not sad
While you’re unfolding in my hands
I think that God must be trying to tell me something
Don’t tell me that a storm’s not comin’

Where is your sting
Where is your victory
Where is your sting
Where is your victory
What is your name
And why are you gleaming
And do you seek fame
Then why are you singing
Where is your sting
Where is your victory
What is your name
Can you still see me
Track Name: Fallin'
She’s got me blinded by a ribbon
And tied with a rope
And I’m reminded of a vision of a woman’s ghost
I hear the telephone ring
I know she is callin’
I’d like to go to sleep
But I’m afraid of fallin’

Now she’s all alone
With a broken soul
I guess I’ll go home
But I’d sure like to know
If I smoke this cigarette
To hide the smell
Of something stronger
Will it really work?

You’ll be fallin’
Fallin’
Everything around you fallin’ apart
Will be fallin’
Fallin’ to pieces
You’ll be fallin’ apart

She’s a cold-hearted woman
With fire in her eyes
She starts to dancin’ like the devil
Staring straight at the sky
You can break the ropes
But you can’t break the spell
You can have high hopes
But you’re still gonna fail

You’ll be fallin’
Fallin’
Everything around you fallin’ apart
will be fallin’
Fallin’ to pieces
You’ll be fallin’ apart

And some glad mornin’ when this life is over
I’ll fly away
To a home on God’s celestial shores
I’ll fly away
I’ll fly away oh glory
I’ll fly away
When I die, hallelujah bye and bye

I’ll, be fallin’
Fallin’
Everything around me fallin’ apart
Will be fallin’
Fallin’ to pieces
We’ll be fallin’ apart
Track Name: Have a Nice Life
It’s been too long since I’ve seen you smile
I’ve been feeling this feeling now for a while
If your mind’s made up I left the front door open
Just take your things and leave my heart broken

You know I know just what you’re thinkin’
I already saw it comin’
I already know you’re leavin’
But you don’t have to say goodbye
If you’re ready to leave darling
Have a nice life

I thought I had it all figured out
There wasn’t one time that I had one doubt
But when she said she didn’t want me
There’s no way I could blame her
But what do I know
I’m just a travelin’ singer

You know I know just what you’re thinkin’
I already saw it comin’
I already know you’re leavin’
But you don’t have to say goodbye
If you’re ready to leave darling
Have a nice life

Bring on the lonely nights
I can fight ‘em all by myself
And I will be all right
And I don’t need your help
You’re the reason for the hate in my heart
You’re the reason for the pain in my chest
You’re the reason for the blood on my hands
You are my loneliness

You know I know just what you’re thinkin’
I already saw it comin’
I already know you’re leavin’
But you don’t have to say goodbye
If you’re ready to leave darling
Track Name: Shade From the Storm
I’ve been walkin’ on the back roads
Tryin’ not to stand in the shadows
I’ve been watchin’ my feet
So I couldn’t tell you where I’ve been
Everybody’s in a hurry
They’re just lookin’ for somebody to follow
Baby don’t you worry
‘Cause I’m gonna make the first move
If anybody ever had a reason that they should feel hollow
That somebody is you

That somebody’d be the shade from the storm
Or the shelter from the sun
Just don’t say that you weren’t warned
And I’ll lead the way
If you wanna run

I’ve been walkin’ on a loose rope
High above the city’s glow
And with every shaking step
Your heel was there to guide my toe
I tried to force the freedom
But you can’t force what you don’t know
I tried to find a meaning
But there’s no meaning in loose rope
There’s no meaning

Be the shade from the storm
I’ll be the shelter from the sun
Just don’t say that you weren’t warned
And I’ll lead the way
If you wanna run

Pass the mantel, drink the wine
Light the candle, walk the line
Play the song, but play it low
Yea, freedom is a song I’ll never know
Freedom is a song I’ll never know
Freedom is a song

I’ll never ever be the shade from the storm
Or the shelter from the sun
Just don’t say that you weren’t warned
And I’ll lead the way
If you wanna run
Track Name: Mountains
Can you see the sunrise
Growing through the trees
It’s glowin’ through the tall pines
And it’s shining down on me
I don’t know if you know exactly what this means
But can you hear the birds sing
Can you hear the birds sing

Followin’ a trail of bread crumbs
And getting’ nowhere fast
But I can see the mountains as long as my sight lasts
Well I don’t need to see them
Their voices are so clear
Can you hear the mountains whisper in my ear

Well I can hear the mountains callin’ me
I can hear the mountains callin’ me
I can hear the mountains callin’ me
I can hear the mountains callin’ me
Callin’ me, callin’ me

I’ve been walkin’ for miles
And I’ll never stop
Until I reach the mountain
And I’ll climb up on the top
And I’ll scream Jesus, come and take me home
And just like Clapton,
Sweet chariot swing low

Well I can hear the mountains callin’ me
I can hear the mountains callin’ me
I can hear the mountains callin’ me
I can hear the mountains callin’ me
Callin’ me, callin’ me, Yeah

Well I can see Jesus comin’ with the clouds
He’s ridin’ on a white horse
And His spirit’s comin’ down
Well I don’t know if you know
Just what to make of it
But can you hear the trumpet
Can you hear the trumpet

And I can hear the mountains callin’ me
Well I can hear the mountains callin’ me
Well I can hear the mountains callin’ me
Well I can hear the mountains callin’ me
Callin’ me, callin’ me, Yeah
Track Name: Dream All Night
It won’t quit rainin’
So the sun won’t shine
It’s a picture perfect painting
Of your heart and mine
I’m wrapped up in surrender
And your voice is on my mind
Your skin it shines like glitter
Beneath the candle lights

Your voice is warm like summer
And your skin looks like the spring
You’re more than just a lover
You’re everything I need
I can feel your passion
With every single kiss
Your hair it feels like satin
As it’s wrapped up in my fist

I can feel your heart beat, beating in time
Baby it’s still rainin’ , let’s stay inside
You don’t need to take your lips off of mine
I feel like we’re dreamin’
Let’s dream all night

Your smile’s white as snow
And it’s shinin’ like the sun
Your lips are like snowflakes
Meltin’ on my tongue
I wanna scream your name
From the highest mountain top
Your kiss feels like a flame
And I don’t want it to stop
So baby, let’s not stop

Your fingers feel like feathers
Tickling my back
And with all this rainy weather
I’m fine just where we’re at
You make me so happy
That I just can’t be sad
And I swear I hear angels sing
Every time you laugh

I can feel your heart beat, beating in time
Baby it’s still rainin’ , let’s stay inside
You don’t need to take your lips off of mine
I feel like we’re dreamin’
Let’s dream all night

Your smile’s white as snow
And it’s shinin’ like the sun
Your lips are like snowflakes
Meltin’ on my tongue
I wanna scream your name
From the highest mountain top
Your kiss feels like a flame
And I don’t want it to stop
So baby, let’s not stop
Track Name: Addicted to the Road
Well I give my heart away almost every time
And I always end up lonely and broken inside
And I leave my heart wide open for the next one to walk in
But she always forgets to close it and walks right out again

Well you know, sometimes your bad habits
Will make you lose the ones you love
But through all the pain and sadness
I still can’t give it up

‘Cause I’m addicted to the road
I’m hooked on the highway
I’ll call you from the hotel
Just to hear you say don’t come home
Everybody needs someone
Well I guess I’ve found my own
‘Cause I don’t have no one
But I’ll always have the road

Like Waylon and Willie I’m always lonely and cold
But maybe like Johnny, I’ll fall in love when I’m old
But for now I’ll keep rollin’ and I’ll never look back
‘Til I find my June Carter and I can be her man in black

Well I’m addicted to the road
I’m hooked on the highway
I’ll call you from the hotel
Just to hear you say don’t come home
Everybody needs someone
Well I guess I’ve found my own
‘Cause I don’t have no one
But I’ll always have the road

Just give me the road
You can keep your love
Just put me on a highway
And show me to the stage
I’m gonna do this my way
I don’t need you anyway
And I’ll be just fine
Out there on my own
And I’ll probably lose my mind
But I’ll never lose the road
Track Name: Come Get Me
My blood’s a rhythm, my heart’s a beat
Your love’s a river washin’ over me
And I’m keepin’ time with my tappin’ foot
Writin’ rhymes on an empty book
With hands held high I’ll drift a way
One more night means one less day
I’ll lay my sins on the setting sun
And watch them disappear like a man on the run

I’ll come home if you’ll come get me
I can’t live if you’re not with me
And I know that your love can still forgive me
So I’ll come home
If you’ll come get me

Well my world is full of empty things
And I can’t take it one more day
No I can’t stay here anymore
Could you tell me what it is that you’re waitin’ for
When the saints march in two by two
If you’ll call for me then I’ll run to you

And I’ll come home if you’ll come get me
I can’t live if you’re not with me
And I know that your love can still forgive me
So I’ll come home
If you’ll come get me

And I’ll come home if you’ll come get me
I can’t live if you’re not with me
And I know that your love can still forgive me
So I’ll come home
Come get me
Track Name: Holding You Now
Speak to me and tell me how you feel
Just lay me down
And show me somethin’ real
Let the music
Tell you what I can’t
Don’t refuse it
Til you give it just one chance

I lost my will a long time ago
I can’t seem to shade these blues
You’ll know how it feels if you lose someone
I let it take me back
And then I’ll fall apart

But I’m holdin’ you now
And I ain’t lettin’ go
If you keep me around
I’ll always let you know
That you’re the reason
You’re the one
If I’m the music
Then you’re the song
I know the moon can’t hold the sun
But I’m holdin’ you now

I wish that we
Could just stay here forever
And never know
The way things could’ve been

But I lost my will a long time ago
I can’t seem to shade these blues
You’ll know how it feels if you lose someone
I’ll let it take me back
And then I’ll fall apart

But I’m holdin’ you now
And I ain’t lettin’ go
If you’ll keep me around
I’ll always let you know
That you’re the reason
You’re the one
If I’m the music
Then you’re the song
I know the moon can’t hold the sun
But I’m holdin’ you now

Pull me down under a broken sky
And teach me how to smile
Mend my heart with your star filled eyes
Then smile for me
So I can fall apart on you
Track Name: Thinkin' Out Loud
The sidewalk keeps a rollin’
And a warm summer breeze
Keeps a blowin’ on my face
Is this grace
Is this grace

I’ll bang my foot against a stone
Or hit my head on a big brick wall
Maybe if my head wasn’t so damn big
I wouldn’t have taken such a darn hard fall
Singin’

None of my dreams are casting any shade
I think I’m young but I think I ain’t
Tough enough to hold my own gun
But I got you girl
And you got me, hun, singin’
Ooo baby, these thoughts aren’t changin’ the world
Or changin’ you girl
So I’ve been thinkin’ about, thinkin’ about thinkin’ about
Thinkin’ out loud

This week passed just a little to slow
And all I forgot was all that I know
It seems that
All the tears that could’ve fallen done fell
And there wasn’t any fire in my hand-dug hell

Singin none of my dreams are casting any shade
I think I’m young but I think I ain’t
Tough enough to hold my own gun
But I got you girl
And you got me, hun, singin’
Ooo baby, these thoughts aren’t changin’ the world
Or changin’ you girl
So I’ve been thinkin’ about, thinkin’ about thinkin’ about
Thinkin’ out loud

Monday came just a little too quick
I couldn’t go to work ‘cause my last pair of Levi’s ripped
My shirt’s got a nicotine stain
And the smell in the air is drivin’ me insane
Singin’

None of my dreams are casting any shade
I think I’m young but I think I ain’t
Tough enough to hold my own gun
But I got you girl
And you got me, hun, singin’
Ooo baby, these thoughts aren’t changin’ the world
Or changin’ you girl
So I’ve been thinkin’ about, thinkin’ about thinkin’ about
Thinkin’ out loud
Track Name: Chasing a Rabbit
There will come a day when we forget that
The rapture ever even happened
This is the day that we’ll pluck the tried and true
From the upright learned Godly doctors
The stars will be the first to take their mark
And promote it from their platforms
While the singers of love will light the way
For those who agree with those who say and those who see
That the world doesn’t look so bad
When you’re a blind man chasing after a rabbit

Well that truth isn’t so far behind
We just choose not to embrace it
But for those who have married your wicked ways
Your sons will not help you face it
You close your eyes for a little while
In hope of a new beginning
But even if you make it through this time
Will you outlast the second tempting?

Now it’s death on the field
And disappearance on the water
You look up to the sky and curse your sons
But take pity on your daughters

Well I looked up and saw a man
And he laid his hand on my shoulder
In the other hand he had seven stars
But he had it tightly folded
I said help me man, I can’t understand
Where are your seven lamp stands
He said they’ve all be changed
Into the national bank
Of Christopher Columbus’s Wasteland

Now it’s death on the field
And disappearance on the water
You look up to the sky and curse your sons
But take pity on your
Death on the field
And disappearance on the water
You beg for respect from your sons
While cursing at your father
Track Name: Ye of Little Faith
I hate your religion
And all your sinful ways
I hate your mask of holiness
You use to hide your shame
I despise your hypocrisy
You’ve carried all your days
You’re still just a sinner saved by grace

Singin’ oh, ye of little faith
I’m singin’ oh, ye of little faith

You’ve been standing on a street corner
Shouting your good deeds
Throwin’ rocks at the sinners
Like you’re holier than thee
Using all your speakers
For everything but praise
But you’re still just a sinner saved by grace

Singin’ oh, ye of little faith
I’m singin’ oh, ye of little faith

So I’ll travel the world in a paper ship
Showin’ love to the restless
Until my sails rip
I’ll bed down somewhere in the deep blue sea
Singin’ oh, Lord crucify me
I’m singin’ oh, Lord crucify me

I’ve been walkin’ for miles
With a monkey on my back
Tellin’ stories to the children
About my haunted past
But my past still follows me to this very day
I’m still just a sinner saved by grace

Singin’ oh, ye of little faith
I’m singin’ oh, ye of little faith

So I’ll travel the world in a paper ship
Showing love to the restless
Until my sails rip
I’ll bed down somewhere in the deep blue sea
Singin’ oh, Lord crucify me
I’m singin’ oh, Lord crucify me
