Track Name: Prize
remember when we first met and all those things that we said?
not gonna lie, I wanted you for the night ...but that was just the first step

so where are you now and what’s running through your head?
2 weeks now on my mind, 2 weeks well spent

so turn down the lights and close your eyes
tonight I want your body, but your heart is the prize

love could be what we needed all along
I dare you to try and prove me wrong

never thought it would be the case
when I was watching you from that stage
that a single night could turn into a thousand days

so close your eyes, I’ll turn down the lights
tonight I want your body, but your heart is the prize

love could be what we needed all along
I dare you to try and prove me wrong
love could be what we needed all along
so come with me, lets prove them wrong

it’s those pieces of us of that make up our story & they won’t break
when we’re older we’ll have time, but we know that’s a lie

we turn down the lights and we got all night
I wanted your body, but I learned that your heart is the prize
Track Name: Ain't That Strange?
that art school girl you never could chase
but now she don’t recognize her own face
after a life of lies, parties, disguised
dressed in a costume she’ll never retire

she never thought she’d see you again...
ain’t that strange? but ain’t that the way?

in the dark with your hands held high
praising God to be alive
to find her, to find yourself hiding inside her

she never thought she’d see you again...
ain’t that strange? but ain’t that the way?

you’d kill yourself to be where she stands
you shudder, wipe the blood right off your hands
to be next to her, you don’t give a damn

she never thought she’d see you again...
ain’t that strange? but ain’t that the way?
Track Name: Walk In (featuring Elli Perry)
walk in and wade through the scars of the Hell you put us through
open doors, empty lines, a blurred mirror like last night

I’ll show you the door, promise you’ll leave forevermore
I can’t feel you, can’t hold you anymore
but damn, I loved you

say you’re leaving, say your peace
your pretty eyes could once comfort me through the weight of the words you’re saying
I’m hoping, I’m praying

I’ll show you the door, promise to leave forevermore
I’m out of here, can’t see you, can’t feel you, can’t hold you near
but damn, I loved you

we’ll sleep and dream in between reconciling our faults
this real life ain’t what it used to be
so hold me for what it’s worth and for what it’s worth and we could be...
but damn it all, I loved you

damn it all, I loved you
I do.
Track Name: A Home For A Day
dreaming of your hotel in Boston, don’t come here too often
I think that we should

it’s too cold for me alone here in Queens
out on the Boulevard

put my last dollar into the tank
I hope that I’ll make it soon

you are all I need

point the car north, don’t have the address
hope you’ll send it my way

I’m higher than moon when I’m with you
need to get my fix

on top of the world ...I better come down
in case that you need me here

you are all I need

and when I find you there, I know that you’ll be waiting for me
and we’ll make ourselves a home for a day

you are all I need
Track Name: Dreams
first rays of the sun, she drifts to sleeps
her mind's been racing, hasn't slept in weeks
for a few short moments, together our hearts beat
like ships in the night, it's off into the world for me

she's only at ease when she sleeps
and I'm only free when she's next to me

coffee racing through my veins
watching time pass through my window pane
off into the night, will we meet again?
dancing in your dreams, just like time never ends

she's only at ease when she sleeps 
and I'm only free when she's next to me
maybe we could dance in your dreams

I’ll find you inside of your dreams, it’s where we will meet
that’s the one place time can’t take you away from me

she's only at ease when she sleeps 
and I'm only free when she's next to me
maybe we could dance in your dreams
Track Name: Ocean
two weeks on the road, two weeks still from home
and all that I want, is my lover's touch
on the day that I return

I want your love like the ocean
let your waves crash on me
I want your love like the ocean
let me swim in your seas

one more hotel room, a glass full of whiskey just thinking of you
and all that I need, is you here with me
baby please

I want your love like the ocean
let your waves crash on me
I want your love like the ocean
let me swim in your seas

my heaven should be you right here next to me

let me swim in your seas
Track Name: Travelin' Thing
I don't drive a pickup truck, but I'm sure country enough
to play a couple songs like your Nashville radio
and I've been putting in my time, up and down ol' 95
from New York City to Georgia and back again

this travelin' thing is just how I get paid
so my darlin' I'll see you when I can
I'll see you when I can

my baby knows all about them winding roads
she's out on them more than I am
we hold on tight, we hold on for our lives
a love like this you just don't find twice

these songs I sing, I'm sending them your way
I love you more than you could understand
this travelin' thing is just how I get paid
so my darlin' I'll see you when I can
I'll see you when I can

this travelin' thing is just how I get paid
so my darlin' I'll see you when I can
I'll see you when I can
these songs I sing, I'm sending them your way
I love you more than you could understand
Track Name: I Know I Didn't Know Anything
when I was a younger man I knew everything
didn't need no help, cuz I had it made
and time it catches up with me
and I realize I didn't know, I didn't know anything

I had it simple, I had it safe
struck out on my own just to spread my name
and time it gets the best of me
and I realize I didn't know, I didn't know anything

so take your plans and chase your stars
we're closer to heaven than you think we are
and time it catches up with me
and I realize I didn't know, I didn't know anything

I didn't know, I didn't know anything
