Track Name: Orbits and Space
Orbits and Space
w/m - APR

Listen to your heart.
Would it ever try to lie to you?
They say all hearts get lonely too.

Steady as the earth
Two as one for years we turned
What happened to those nights in June?

Wait, I believe you a little space could help
Magnetize our love
Take, as many moons as you need to realign yourself
Around me, we are strong

You’re wrong,
We are strong you’re wrong

Can't ingnore the pain
When I think about the truths you know
Pain feels more real, when you don’t

Shaken by the time
Refusing to forgive for our past crimes
Underneath the years, we once were whole

Stop, put your keys down and understand my point
Though poorly expressed and
Walk, outside of what we have become and look at what we were
We were strong, you’re wrong

You’re wrong,
We were strong you’re wrong

Bound together by our history orbiting around each other
Always watching never happy wondering what we could have been (3x)

Strong, we aren't strong, we're wrong
Track Name: Movie Star to Someone
Movie Star to Someone
w & m – APR

Another story ends
The closest one has come to being complete
Impossible to think it didn’t last forever
How could you leave?

I sailed across you oceans
Climbed your highest mountains and fought in your name
Listened every time your skies came crashing down
And never complained.

Am I not a pillow to dream on?
Am I not a wishing well?
Always thought, I’d be movie star to someone
But life is not, a fairy tale

The hero never wins
Years of living stories have proven this true
Hollywood has sold me lies I’d get the girl
Well, I just get used.

Maybe I’m not special?
I’m probably naïve and the jokes on me?
Well, born and raised lover, I must keep on writing
Because I believe in true love

Am I not a pillow to dream on?
Am I not a wishing well?
Always thought, I’d be movie star to someone
But life is not, a fairy tale
Track Name: When You're There and When I'm Not
When You’re There and When I’m Not
w/m – APR

Honey, don’t cry please everything is fine.
Your world isn’t ending from here it’s looking bright.
You got a great job where we both soon will live.
For now, we must keep focused on staying positive

It's hard I know you're overwhelmed and I'm up here without you
No matter what I say you still cry

I miss our life. I miss our friends
I want to back. I’ve been a wreck since we left.
I miss our place. I miss coming home.
I miss always having someone there when I feel alone.
This missing feeling never stops
When you’re there and when I’m not

If it helps honey things here aren’t the same
So many different faces and no one knows my name.
When I walk down Church Street, I can’t help but feel sad
That part of life is over, what crazy times we had

Shots at Red Square, raging Nectar’s and late night Mr. Mike's
Then, I never felt more alive

I miss our life. I miss our friends
I want to go back. I’ve been a wreck since we left.
I miss our place. I miss seeing stars
I miss watching sunsets by the lake with you in my arms
This missing feeling never stops
When you’re there and when I’m not

When You’re There and I’m Not (over and over)
Track Name: Drawing Dead
Drawing Dead
w/m - APR

Nervous as a father cocky as a son
A hundred dollar bill on the table my game is 21
Swinging like a seesaw back and forth my conscious prays
For the next time that I get I will walk away, from here

Oh, stop everyone I am drawing dead and
I can’t stop myself
I need to slow down and wake up because
I’m digging my own grave
With every card I take is the deeper and the deeper I get
I’m drawing dead

Whisky on the rocks chase with Jack and Coke
I can’t drink them fast enough to erase the fact your gone
So, I smoke another cigarette anything for luck
But I know the only way to beat the house is to never sit down

Oh, stop everyone I am drawing dead and
I can’t stop myself
I need to slow down and wake up because
I’m digging my own grave
With every card I take is the deeper and the deeper I get
I’m drawing dead

It’s all because of you
That I try and I try and I try to buy my happiness
Just like you the cards I can’t predict
One minute you’re here and the next one you’re gone and
I don’t know what to believe

Oh, stop everyone I am drawing dead and
I can’t stop myself
I need to slow down and wake up because
I’m digging my own grave
With every card I take is the deeper and the deeper I get
I’m drawing dead
Track Name: Marry Me Darlin'
Marry Me Darlin'
w/m – APR

To live a day with out
Is a day I hate to live.
Honey, you’re my sunshine
With you my day begins.

Even when I’m traveling
And we go to sleep alone.
When I wake up, you’re in my cup
The coffee for my soul

Marry me darlin', marry me please
Honey, I am yours forever can’t you see.
Marry me darlin'. Why won’t you marry me?
We both know I’m the rope and you’re the tow
So, don’t worry what you heard about me

We met down in Dixie
In 1985
At rodeo bar
You stopped me with your smile

All the women knew me
And they told you I was a fool.
Still, I asked you dance and you gave me chance and
From those first steps I knew

I wanted to, marry you darlin'. Won’t you marry me?
I am yours forever can’t you see
Oh, marry me darlin', oh, marry me please
Cause, we both know I’m the rope and you’re the tow
So, don’t worry what you heard about me

Yes, it’s true I used to be, but
that was before I knew how sweet love can be
Now, I will wait, as long as it takes, for you to say I do

Marry me darlin, marry me please
I am yours forever can’t you see.
Marry me darlin', marry me please
Why won’t you marry me?
We both know I’m the rope and you’re the tow
So, don’t worry what you heard about me

Marry Me Darlin'...
Track Name: Waiting on the Good Lord
Waiting on the Good Lord
w/m - APR

Waiting on the good Lord,
On the rapture, on the light
Waiting for the reunion,
The celebration to start tonight

Born in the great depression,
She was the wife of soldier, and a widow to soon
With hard work and dedication
In her memories she survived

Waiting on the good Lord,
On the rapture, on the light
Waiting for the reunion,
The celebration to start tonight

Oh, but she won't forgive this world
For life framed by the death
Release it the anger
That won’t let her leave

Now she’s crying out to her mother,
To bring her comfort oh to easy the pain
Cause she’s it the end coming
To good Lord she’ll return

Release it, release it, release it, you gotta release it
