Track Name: Crimes and Misdemeaners
As the sheriff rides up to the house
I think of how I’ll miss them
and I hope they’’ll member me for better things
Like how I held her little hands
and kissed her tiny face
and all the little songs we used to sing

But a man lies dead on the porch and his blood is on the grass

Now my father tells me son
you’ll have to pay for all your sins or else you’ll
have them visited upon your kin
I ran into the parlor and I
asked my little baby daughter
can you live with all your daddy did

The sheriff put his hand upon my shoulder and said son it’s time to go

when I’m gone sing a song
and please forgive the things I’ve done
just don’t forget me
please don’t forget me
Sing aloud sing and shout
I’ll be humble I’ll be proud
just don’t forget me
don’t forget me

As I sit here in this tiny cell
I’m waiting for the verdict and I’m
hoping that they’ll see my point of view
the man I shot he threatened all my
children and he told me that my
wife will beg that he would kill her too

so I put a bullet fast and deep into the evil place that the thought was formed

when I’m gone sing a song
and please forgive the things I’ve done
just don’t forget me
please don’t forget me
Sing aloud sing and shout
I’ll be humble I’ll be proud
just don’t forget me
don’t forget me

Now I’m standing in the gallows
underneath the nooses shadow
waiting for the pardon that won’t come
Jesus I’ve not asked for nothing
now I’m begging you for something
Keep my baby girls all safe and warm

give them all the peace and love that I myself couldn’t give them on my own

when I’m gone sing a song
and please forgive the things I’ve done
just don’t forget me
please don’t forget me
Sing aloud sing and shout
I’ll be humble I’ll be proud
just don’t forget me
don’t forget me
Track Name: Little Valentine
I sit here watching
you sit there watching everyone but me
so you can’t see me smile
but I know something
you’re beautiful and I’m not so I leave
and I wave goodbye

but someday
you will be my
little valentine

You’ll think I’m crazy
but I’m the one who calls you two
and I’m the one who’s breathing on the line
And someday maybe
you’ll feel for me the way I feel for you
and you will be my little valentine

I’m walking you home
I’m twenty steps behind so you can’t know
how you’re safe and warm
I just can’t help it
I need to know you’re happier than me
I need to know you’re sheltered from the storm

Now you turn and smile at me
I don’t know what to do
you say you’ve seen me watching you
and now you’re watching me
Track Name: Falling From My Arms
You lay beside me but we seem so far apart
I didn’t know the words I said would break your heart
I turn to tell you that you're beautiful to me
but my pride gets in the way.

I’ll sit here all night long
sing the same old songs
never looking back to see you
falling from my arms

the nights are longer
now that darling you’re not here
and now our distance can be measured in light years
I’m sending signals that you’ll probably never see
Please come back to me

I’ll sit here all night long
sing the same old songs
never looking back to see you
falling from my arms

and now you’re with some other guy
and all the things that he can buy
but does he know just how to make you smile
or does he make you cry

I’ll sit here all night long
sing the same old songs
never looking back to see you
falling from my arms
Track Name: Hero Down
Sending love
Across the only pathways he has known
Safe in flight
Surrounded by the clouds that he calls home

But on the ground
The secret’s that he guarded has been found
Now they’re out
He wakes to find he’s helpless gagged and bound

Superman is going to die
We’re watching as his cape’s falling from the sky
The villains have been organized
Their singing as the heroes widow cries

Now there he lay
On satin pillows colored red and gold
Forever gone
We’ll never know just our future holds

Superman has gone and died
We watched him as his
cape's falling from the sky
The villains have been organized
Their singing as the heroes widow dies


And he's never coming back
No he'sever coming back
No he's never coming back
We’re losing the war
To the men in black

Superman has gone and died
We watched him as his
cape's falling from the sky
The villains have been organized
Their singing as the heroes widow dies
Track Name: Love Down South
If I ever get a ticket back to New Orleans
I’m gonna buy myself a ticket back
I’m picking up the girl that broke my heart in two
I’m gonna take back to where I’m at.
I know my momma’s not so proud
of the girls I’ve brought around
but she’ll love the Coon ass girl
my heart has found

I’m spending my last dollar on a wedding ring
and I’m never ever looking back
the preacher looked at me and asked me if I do
I said you didn’t even have to ask

And now my momma looks so proud
as my daddy spins her round
and they love the coon ass girl
my heart has found
I've brought around

memories
made under
grandma’s tree
with the girl that's sweeter than wine

and the love we share
Doesn't even compare
To the love that we're making
Underneath the stars tonight

Now I vow to always make you smile
And I'll always try to go the extra mile
Just to bring everything your heart desires

memories
made under
grandma’s tree
with the girl that's sweeter than wine

and the love we share
Doesn't even compare
To the love that we're making
Underneath the stars tonight
Track Name: Stella
When I’ve had a day of sorrow
and I’m wishing for tomorrow
I can always count on to make me smile

You don’t care if I’m a loser
a convict or a boozer
I know you’ll always be right by my side

and you’ll always make me smile

let’s go running through the meadow
through the fields so golden yellow
and chase me til we fall onto the ground

Cause the afternoon is waning
and you know your dinner’s waiting
A payment for your unrestricted love
you’re unrestricted love

Stella you’re the only girl to ever see me cry
you gently lick away the tears and never ask me why
I know you’ll never understand just what you mean to me
Oh Stella can’t you see
Stella your the girl for me

I love your chocolate color
and green eyes like your mother
I love the way you turn and look at me

the way you’re always there to greet me
shake you’re tail and dance around me
unconditional your love is free
your love is free to me

Stella you’re the only girl to ever see me cry
you gently lick away the tears and never ask me why
I know you’ll never understand just what you mean to me
Oh Stella can’t you see
Stella your the dog for me

you’ll grow old and leave me here
my heart will go with you
if there’s a heaven made for dogs
Stella it was made
Stella it was made for you

Stella you’re the only girl to ever see me cry
you gently lick away the tears and never ask me why
I know you’ll never understand just what you mean to me
Oh Stella can’t you see
Stella your the dog for me
Track Name: Midwest Summer Nights
hello Momma
It’s Jimmy your favorite son
here’s my weekly letter
just one more and I’m done
I just can’t wait to see you
to tell you it’s all right
they say I’m coming home now
just one more lonely night

Oh no Momma,
there’s trouble on rise
as I sat here writing to you
the sky was set on fire
So I’m finishing this letter
with my rifle in my arms
and I’m praying they’ll give it to you
or I’ll make it back to the farm

As the sky falls down around us
I think of summer nights mid july
all the fire works above us
and daddy pulled us in and held us tight
I hope I’ll get another midwest summer night

Hello momma
I’m a friend my name is Jack
and I’m reading you this letter
cause Jimmy’s not coming back
he wants you to remember
he wants you to recall
the words he whispered to you
when he left home in the fall
Track Name: The Night The Lights Went Out
keeping time to the beat of the drum
the lights come up and I’m feeling so numb
I’m sweating bullets and my throat is kind of tight
I strike a chord and I scream out loud
the band responds like a punch in the mouth
and then I smile as I step into the light

and now i want to slow this down
before it all comes crashing down
in an all consuming fire that will kill us all
cause you know it never lasts
when were living way too fast
and before you know the lights go out and then were done

it’s almost over but it’s never done
we’re pushing ten and it's part of the fun
the crowd is roaring and I’m reaching for the sky
I count to 2 then three and the four
I jump up high then I fall on the floor
the lights go out and then I start to cry

and now i want to slow this down
before it all comes crashing down
in an all consuming fire that will kill us all
cause you know it never lasts
when were living way too fast
and before you know the lights go out and then were done

Now the second hand is turning fast
on the march of time that I just can’t make it last
I would rather burn out now
than fade away tonight

and now i want to slow this down
before it all comes crashing down
in an all consuming fire that will kill us all
cause you know it never lasts
when were living way too fast
and before you know the lights go out and then were done
Track Name: In Montgomery
When the city sleeps
She’s singing sweet sweet lullabys
the crickets chirp along to their favorite song
and when the sun should make it’s entrance
setting fire to the eastern sky
God will smile upon Montgomery
where our dreams reach to the sky

from the civil war
to just where Rosa stood her ground
Montgomery’s streets have often become battle grounds
but time has taught us something
about how to get along
now we hope we’re known for something
not just how we’ve been so wrong

The sun still shines here in Montgomery
Where dreams are still worth fighting for
Our roots are strong here in Montgomery
and our dreams are just as strong

the sun goes down
on big ol southern town
the river whispers secrets no one dares to tell
and the lights are shining through the windows
of the riverboat tonight
I’ll say my prayer on a bended knee
that Montgomery does alright

The sun still shines here in Montgomery
Where dreams are still worth fighting for
Our roots are strong here in Montgomery
and our dreams are just as strong

she’s more than just the spark for the bloody civil war
Like Dr King who showed us what’s worth fighting for
and we can thank good ole hank for the some songs to sing along

The sun still shines here in Montgomery
Where dreams are still worth fighting for
Our roots are strong here in Montgomery
and our dreams are just as strong

we’re not so big but we’re not so small
we won’t apologize for our southern drawl
in fact we’ll slow it down so you can understand
we’re not that place that you see on TV
and we’re really not bad won’t you come and see me
and you can smile upon Montgomery
where your dreams reach to the sky
Track Name: Your Smile (lights up the room)
well it’s time to sit and tell you
in a cute little song
bout the things I love about you
we can all sing along

first your youre silly little giggle
when I tickle you’re toes
or the way you call my name
I think my heart will explode

and your smile well it lights up the room

well you’re such a little cutie
you just don’t understand
how you you melt my heart with kisses
and when holding my hand

you jibber and you jabber
bout birds and the bees
you’re pickin all the flowers
and you give them to me

and your smile well it lights up the room

I want to hug you and to squeeze you
and to laugh and play with you every day
cause you’re really snuggly wuggly
and I love to hear the thing that you say
won’t you always say you love me
and be my lovey dovey I pray


you’re a pretty little princess
but you’ll soon be a queen
and you’re the cutest little princess
that I’ve ever seen

You’re growing up so fast
I think it’s melting my brain
If you grow another inch
I think we’ll all go insane

and your smile well it lights up the room
Track Name: I'm Tired
I’m tired
and I’m spent
I just lay my weary head
onto this lonely bed
whisper
in my ear
tell me you love me
then lay right beside me

I’ll dream of the day
when again here I’ll lay
as you sing
another lullaby
Track Name: As Seen on TV
Seven minutes til we
self destruct upon the
battlefield below
keep living in the
moments we’ve abandoned
til the second we blow

Now we shake shake shake and shudder
slip trip take another
drink if it helps you to sleep
just go ask your mother
girlfriend sister brother
they all want to believe
Cause they’ve seen it on TV


Five minutes as we
tumble towards our target
Four minutes to go
our fate is growing closer
like the ground below us
30 seconds to go

Now we shake shake shake and shudder
slip trip take another
drink if it helps you to sleep
just go ask your mother
girlfriend sister brother
they all want to believe
Cause they’ve seen it on TV

When we crash to the ground
and the fire and smoke fill up the sky
will you turn to your screens
just to see it on TV
no one will believe
til you tell them what they’ve seen
and the stars
make it a movie of the week

Now we shake shake shake and shudder
slip trip take another
drink if it helps you to sleep
just go ask your mother
girlfriend sister brother
they all want to believe
Cause they’ve seen it on TV
Track Name: Punk Rock Prom Queen
I remember when I saw you
I remember how you smelled
you were dressed up in lovely dress so white

I asked you if you’d kiss me
it was awkward but so right
your turned and put your lips on top of mine

run with me and hide
we’ll disappear into the night
where we can’t hear their whispers over ours

let’s fall into each others arms
and kiss away the blood and scars
tonight

your hair was tinted purple
your eyes were rimmed in black
The Nancy to my Sid and you were mine.
my gorgeous punk rock prom queen
you were stunning you were fine
I felt so lucky I felt so alive

run with me and hide
we’ll disappear into the night
where we can’t hear their whispers over ours

let’s fall into each others arms
and kiss away the blood and scars
tonight

I promise to be true to you
in good times and in bad
for richer or for poorer
you’re so rad
from this life and into the next
until the very end
I’ll always be right here to hold your hand
Track Name: A Galaxy Far Away
a boy from the desert dreams
while the stars are filled with rebel screams
and the droids carry secret plans
and a message from the princess hands
His whole world changed today
when Ben suggests they fly fly far away
the pirate and his furry friend
lead them fast into the empire’s hands


Ben gets killed by the man in black
The princess and her friends attack
flying into the death stars core
the boy from the desert scores in episode IV

the boy from the desert fights
on the planet with covered up in ice
and gets religion from the man in green
learning patience in the force unseen
the pirate and his furry friend
with the princess and the droids in hand
Fly across universe again
And again into the empires hands

the boy fights hard with the man in black
who steals his hand in a fierce attack
and tells him son you’ll be coming back
but next time you will call me dad

the boy from the desert’s back
to help the pirate and his friends attack
the slug who held the princesses hand
and the man eating hole in the sand
They gathered on the forest moon
and their furry little friends approve
the pirate and his furry friend
lead them once more to the empires hands


The father and the son unite
while the battle rages on outside
the rebels find their way inside
and the father says before he dies, son you’ve won the war
Track Name: Love Not Over the Hill
on the night when he first saw her
at the wedding of a friend
she was all the things he’d asked for
from the angel maker’s hands
but the 20 years between them
was a scandal and a sin
to the friends that stood around them
throwing stones into the wind

But the years they have between them
seem to vanish with the days
and the whispers and the haters voices
set their hearts ablaze
when she smiles he knows it’s worth it
when he holds her she’s content
and the love they share between them
must have been from heaven sent

When he sees her in the morning
when she’s standing in the door
the flaws she tries so hard to hide
makes him love her even more
she’s smart and she is beautiful
adventurous and fun
and the ways he says I love you
makes her know that he’s the one

But the years they have between them
seem to vanish with the days
and the whispers and the haters voices
set their hearts ablaze
when she smiles he knows it’s worth it
when he holds her she’s content
and the love they share between them
must have been from heaven sent

and they’re growing old together
and he may be older still
and he knows what they say cause he’s going grey
but he’s not yet over the hill

But the years they have between them
seem to vanish with the days
and the whispers and the haters voices
set their hearts ablaze
when she smiles he knows it’s worth it
when he holds her she’s content
and the love they share between them
must have been from heaven sent
Track Name: The Whispers
When I lie on my side
with my eyes open wide
and my thoughts on the day
that I wishing would just melt away
I can count on the sounds
that you make with your mouth
your voice in my ear
your whispers ringing out so clear

And the whispers give me oh
shivers up and down my spine
the whispers send me oh
deep into the deepest slumber

is it wrong is it right
when I turn out the light
and the world disappears
when I hear the whispers in my ear
I just hope they don’t hear
they would think I was weird
how could they understand
how could they ever understand

And the whispers send me oh
shivers up and down my spine
the whispers send me oh
deep into the deepest slumber

just between you and me
and sounds in between
like a drug it’s a high
but I’m clean and calm and still alive
So this secret I’ll keep
like the others who sleep
with the voices so clear
and the whisper’s softly in their ears

And the whispers send me oh
shivers up and down my spine
the whispers send me oh
deep into the deepest slumber
Track Name: 'Til It's Over
In the weeks since we first saw them
walking t’ward our neighborhood
through the flowers we’d just planted
to the ground our neighbors stood
I now know what they wanted
And now I understand
the end had just been started
the end of modern man

But we’re in this thing together
and there’s nothing we can do
so we’ll run until it’s over
til it’s only me and you
I will hold your hand forever
I will kiss your dirty face
til we run into the ocean
Til we leave this bitter place



as I slowly raise my rifle
with a monster in my sights
and I’m counting over thirty
but my bullets total nine
so we run across the river
and into the trees we climb
I laugh to keep from crying
cause we’re running out of time

But we’re in this thing together
and there’s nothing we can do
so we’ll run until it’s over
til it’s only me and you
I will hold your hand forever
I will kiss your dirty face
til we run into the ocean
Til we leave this bitter place

If we Just lie still
If we breathe just right
They won't hear our hearts
Beat together tonight
Just one last kiss
Then we'll close our eyes
And we'll dream we're somewhere safe
In our arms tonight

But we’re in this thing together
and there’s nothing we can do
so we’ll run until it’s over
til it’s only me and you
I will hold your hand forever
I will kiss your dirty face
til we run into the ocean
Til we leave this bitter place
Track Name: Tonight
lie still don’t say a word
the world’s asleep tonight
the things you’ve said won’t seem so bad
in golden morning light
we’ll have a drink
some time to think
we’ll waste away tonight

Calm down
let’s just remember tonight
no looking back
there’s nothing worth bringing to light
let’s burn all these pictures
and scatter the these ashes tonight

the fireflies are so alive
the grass is soaked with dew
let’s ditch our clothes
and take a swim
it’s only me and you
the waters warm
let’s be reborn
waste away the night

Calm down
let’s just remember tonight
no looking back
there’s nothing worth bringing to light
let’s burn all these pictures
and scatter the these ashes tonight

Save all good thoughts
and throw out the old
there’s no room for cobwebs
just memries of gold
I’m asking forgiveness for all that I’ve done
now let’s just get back to the fun


time’s up
oh sleepy head
the evening’s come and gone
your mother called
she’s so concerned
she says it’s been too long
Track Name: What Momma Knew
on an evening in the summer I was born
I was rocking to Led Zeppelin and the Stones
My mom was singing sweet sweet lullabies
while the nurses tuned in to rock 105
What Momma never knew
was that rock and roll was made for me and you

on an evening in the summer I turned three
My life would change when I did finally see
the Wookies and the falcon and the droids
when princess Leia’s planet got destroyed
and Momma never knew
the the force was strong with me and strong with you

the summers go so fast
and the good times never last
and the memories come and go
but Momma always knew
cause she told me I would find someone like you

I fell in love with you at seventeen
a geeky rock and roller in blue jeans
I’m never sure our friends could understand
the day we wed in the presence of my band
and Momma never knew
that our love would hold together just like glue

Now I’m edging up towards forty I’m the same
I writing geeky songs I’ve got no shame
and even if my hair should turn to grey
the kid inside my heart is here to stay
and like Momma always said
you can close your eyes and live inside your head

the summers go so fast
and the good times never last
and the memories come and go
but Momma always knew
cause she told me I would find someone like you
Track Name: Ugly
Ugly awkward and frail
dressed up in rags looking so pale
lonely barely alive
I’m a loser, born to fail
but I’m hoping you’ll see me
as I watch you dance here tonight
Angel what can I say
I'm a sucker for your face
Please may I have this dance
Oh Angel take my hand
I’m hoping you’ll save me
from failing again tonight

and we’ll twist turn and shake all night
I’ll be happy for one moment in time

first dance you were so fine
my lovely valentine
soft skin pressed against mine
our sweaty hands combine
I know it’s not real
you’re just trying so hard to be nice

and we’ll twist turn and shake all night
I’ll be happy for one moment in time

Angel please, just one more time
feel your heart beat against mine
DJay please don’t turn on the lights
Angel might see me and ruin the rest of the night

and we’ll twist turn and shake all night
I’ll be happy for one moment in time

Track Name: Summer of Regrets
even after 20 years
I’m still thinking of
the summer of regrets
It all started with a kiss
and our sweaty arms
around each others necks

for that I won’t apologize

I know your name means quiet
but your smile was always
calling out my name
and then one summer day
when my folks were gone
our sparks turned a flame
and then to shame

and I’m sorry
I didn’t call you back that day
and I’m sorry
for the things I didn’t say
and I’m sorry
it wasn’t meant to end this way
in that summer
of regrets

You called me on the phone
but my father told you
junior’s not at home
you were scared cause you were late
and the things I said were
were just a heavy weight
a heavy weight

and I’m sorry
I didn’t call you back that day
and I’m sorry
for the things I didn’t say
and I’m sorry
it wasn’t meant to end this way
in that summer
of regrets

in the 9 months you were gone
my world changed and you moved on
our summer thing was now a fog
but I still missed you
but the questions that you asked
are always haunting my old past
like when you left where did you go
and was it ‘cause of me

now after all these years
I still wonder if there’s
someone I should meet
is she funny is she fair
does she have my eyes
or auburn colored hair
Track Name: Annelies
Is it true what you said
bout our summer spent in Amsterdam
holding hands in the streets
did you find me handsome
how'd you feel dear Anne?

In the not that you left
said you'd gone away to Switzerland
Annelies did you take
the pendant to remind yourself or me

Annelies
Annelies
I'll be thinking of you til the very end

When you called me Petel
and your dimpled cheeks filled up with blood
I would smile just like now
and I'd think about the girl I lost somehow

Annelies
Annelies
I'll be thinking of you til the very end

I pray that when the smoke clears
I pray you'll feel the same
and when this thing blows over
I'll see you once again

Annelies
Annelies
Annelies
I'll be thinking of you til the very end
Track Name: Down to Hollywood
You father left the keys inside his favorite cadillac
you know he wants us to go for a ride
One last trip before the summer’s end
The sun can be our guide
and we’ll put the rag top down
and we’ll take this party somewhere out of town

Gonna have a good time in his favorite ride
like you know we should
taking the turns just a little too fast
but it feels so good
Singing along to his favorite songs
like you know he would
soaring along down the 101
Down to Hollywood

your father left his heart with me so now it’s here for you
it’s all he had but somehow that’s enough
one last trip was what he wants from you
one last summer ride
so we’ll put this rag top down
and we’ll take this party somewhere out of town

Gonna have a good time in his favorite ride
like you know we should
taking the turns just a little too fast
but it feels so good
Singing along to his favorite songs
like you know he would
soaring along down the 101
Down to Hollywood

We’ll sleep up in the canyons
where the stars shine bright
where we’ll we’ll see you up in heaven one more time
Track Name: A Praise Song
Standing on the roof
above the citizens below
looking for a reason
just to make this place explode
I’m painting on this mask
I’ve gotta hide my face tonight
Hallelujah let’s go out and fight

Hallelujah
Everything’s just fine
Hallelujah
the Good Lord’s on my side
the money’s not so great
and the health care’s really sad
but Hallelujah
the perks are not so bad

The villains punch the clock
they said they’re calling it a night
we’ll have another drink
I think it’s time to grab a bite
the waffle house is close
but no one cares, and it’s all right
cause Hallelujah we live another night

Hallelujah
Everything’s just fine
Hallelujah
the Good Lord’s on my side
the money’s not so great
and the health care’s really sad
but Hallelujah
the perks are not so bad

I sit here at my day job
and I’m staring at the clock
I wish my friends could see me
would it really be a shock
would they point up in the air
saying there he goes again
Hallelujah the hero he’s my friend

Hallelujah
Everything’s just fine
Hallelujah
the Good Lord’s on my side
the money’s not so great
and the health care’s really sad
but Hallelujah
the perks are not so bad
Track Name: Five Good Years
Junior high
In 1968
beginning of
the best years of my life

We were beautiful

Your brother died
In the conflict overseas
Gwendolyn
Would you take a walk with me

Then you kissed me

This carousel spins round and round
(And I'm dizzy)
Distracting us with lights and sound
(It's all
Life moves on while we're making fruitless plans
But Time stands still when you're around

Summer time
In 1973
You lost your job
All because of me

Then you kissed him

five good years
is all we’ll ever get
take our time
Before our last sunset

Is this over

This carousel spins round and round
(And I'm dizzy)
Distracting us with lights and sound
(It's all
Life moves on while we're making fruitless plans
But Time stands still when you're around
Track Name: Holidays
Hands up
Sing songs
the DJ he knows
with the bad kids
All night they’re
making their noise

and the flashing lights
looks like day at night

on the holidays
spent out
on the road
on the holidays
I know
Where we'll go

The side kicks
fixing the
spokes in the wheel
and we’ll drive through
to Memphis
where the king got his feels
and we’ll drive all night
into morning light

on the holidays
spent out
on the road
on the holidays
I know
where we'll go

now we're at the end of
where the map says
no ones ever
been so we’ll just go explore
on our own

it’s a conflict
of interest
the lies that we’ve told
let’s not
forget that we’re
getting too old

on the holidays
spent out
on the road
on the holidays
I know
Where to go
on the holidays
spent out
on the road
on the holidays
I know
where to go
Track Name: Nice Guys Finish Last
on the eve of my induction
to last half of my life
I’m searching for the answers
I won’t find

I don’t feel any wiser
than the day that I turned 5
I might be just a fool
but that’s alright

I’m not going back
Life moves way too fast
while we’re searching for the answers
we’ll likely never find
Nice guys finish last

well I’m getting old and weary
but I’m younger in my mind
and wonder how I got to be so blind

No one’s ever able
to tame the kid inside
he knows it’s not too late to go outside

I’m not going back
Life moves way too fast
while we’re searching for the answers
we’ll likely never find
Nice guys finish last

I’ve spent a lifetime wondering
where I’m supposed to be
the satellites are pointing
towards the open sea
but as I look inside
my heart is telling me
it’s right here in your arms

I’m not going back
Life moves way too fast
while we’re searching for the answers
we’ll likely never find
Nice guys finish last
