Track Name: Get In the Car
what would you do if I asked you
to run away with me, run away with me?
how do you think it would feel
with me behind the wheel
and you picking out the tunes?

I'd tell you everything I love
is here with me in the car

get in the car
and we'll drive 'till we reach the sea
get in the car
and we'll get to where we're meant to be

we could tell your boss you're not well
and run away with me
just a couple of days in a strange place
we'll pitch our tent by the side of the road

I'd tell you everything I love
is here with me under the stars

get in the car
and we'll drive 'till we reach the sea
get in the car
and we'll get to where we're meant to be

follow your heart
follow my lead
trust your gut
come on, come with me
I got a plan
it's one item long
it says "get in the car"
and we're gone
Track Name: On Your Own Now
You leave me nothing but difficult choices
Trying to listen to what that little voice says
You get a little attitude, I get a little angry
Do what you need to do, because darling, frankly,

You’re on your own now

It was never a problem while you got what you wanted
You offer a bargain, I don’t know what the cost is
You get a little attitude, you want me to get angry
What are you going to do when I say no thank you

You’re on your own now

I’ve been feeling like something is changing
Something is different but I can’t quite explain it
You get your little attitude, but I don’t get angry
I’ve got nothing but gratitude and you don’t have to thank me

You’re on your own now
Track Name: Virginia
Just got the news
My old 9 to 5 cut me loose
Aint’ been free since God knows when
Time to get on the road again

Got my bag packed up
One more ride in this old pickup truck
See your face a thousand miles away
I’ll be home in a couple days
Home in a couple days

Virginia
I’m calling out to you
Virginia
Please be true

50 miles out of San Antone
Long to see those blue ridge hills I call home
Nothing left but a dollar and a dime
I wonder if shel’ll still be mine
Still be mine

Virginia
I’m calling out to you
Virginia
Please be true
Please be true

I set out to find a way
Left you alone
All I found was emptiness
Now I’m coming home

Drove all through the night
Me and this old pickup truck chasing the moonlight
The radio is playing our song
I’ll be home before too long
Before too long

Virginia…
Track Name: Get Up and Go
I look out the window
I read the news
I check my phone to see
if I missed a text from you

I’ve got a to-do list
It’s a little too long
But it'll still be there
when I'm done
putting it off.

I'm looking for some of that old
get up and go
get up and go
get up and go
get up and go

you ask me to
you ask me three
anybody else want to get in line
and ask of me?

I'll be right here in this
old rocking chair
there's another one just like it
sit beside me here

I'm looking for some of that old
get up and go
get up and go
get up and go
get up and go

it's alright, it's alright
just watch the day drift on by
drift on by
Track Name: Later On
Later on, you’ll find me on the floor
A bottle to my name and nothing more
The burn of the whiskey heals my soul
But the fire in my heart burns out of control

She walked in and ordered a tall one
Turning head like she liked to do
Smelled like a field of wildflowers
Though I might go pick me a few

Later on, we’ll go dancing
Later on, we’ll drink a few
Later on, there’ll be romancing
Later on, when I can’t have you

Woke up with Friday night still on my tongue
Got a few wildflowers before the sun
Body and soul still in my bed
And this love affair stuck in my head

Later on, we’ll go dancing
Later on, we’ll drink a few
Later on, there’ll be romancing
Later on, when I can’t have you

The look on your face tells it all
That ship’s done sailed and I done fell off
It ain’t because I’m a bad one
Sometimes a broken heart can’t be undone
Track Name: Good To Be Seen
You thought it was small talk
but that's not what I thought
that is not what I thought at all

I thought it was more than
you want to admit but
you couldn't stay quiet anymore

I can see through you
I think you see through me
I want the truth, I want the whole truth, I want nothing but the truth
it's good to be seen

I think at night
we lie awake
wrestling with the same restless dreams

i think it might
be mighty nice
if you told me what you think that means

I can see through you
I think you see through me
I want the truth, I want the whole truth, I want nothing but the truth
it's good to be seen

there are some things we don't know
how to say
how to let go and release

I want to open the door
for those fears to go
I want you to open the door for me
Track Name: Figure It Out
I don’t know what we look like
To somebody looking from the outside in
All I know is that when we’re looking
Eye to eye I want skin to skin

I’ve got a feeling beating in my heartbeat
I’ve got a feeling with no end in sight
I’ve got a feeling we got something starting
And if something’s starting, now’s a real good time

All I know is that we’ve got something
We’ve got something to figure out

Let’s figure it out

I see you looking through your eyelashes
I see your hips move to the two and four
I hear your laughter cut through these voices
Finish your drink and then we’re out the door

I’ve got a feeling beating in my heartbeat
I’ve got a feeling with no end in sight
I’ve got a feeling we got something starting
And if something’s starting, now’s a real good time

All I know is that we’ve got something
We’ve got something to figure out

Let’s figure it out

Get a little bit of heaven while the gettin’s good
(let’s figure it out)
Do a little bit of living, I think we should

All I know is that we’ve got something
We’ve got something to figure out

Let’s figure it out
Track Name: She Speaks
Lately, she’s been wondering
If what she heard was right
Keep inside the lines,
You’ll be fine

She’s letting down her hair now
Hips sway side to side
Dancing in the moonlight
There’s no time

She speaks in the way her body moves
Without saying a word

Shadows fall around her
Skips into the light
All that truly matters
She feels inside

Shedding all her past doubts
Breaking the rules
Each untethered motion
She can choose

She speaks in the way her body moves
Without saying a word

When she moves
She finally believes
What it means to be free
Track Name: When a Woman
when a woman tells you that she wants you
you believe her
when a woman tells that she needs you
you better kiss her behind her ear
take some time to understand
her secrets contained within
take the time to please her
or she'll find someone who can

when a woman tells you that she loves you
you believe her
when a woman tells you that she loves you
you better listen with both ears
take some time to understand
just what has been done
now you've got something to say
or you better have somewhere to run

the minute she told me she loved me
it felt like she drugged me
all the things that i wanted to say
all came out ugly
in the heat of the moment
the curl of her lips it consumed me
and then all that was left
was to slip off her dress
and we'll figure it out in the morning

when a woman tells you that she loves you
you believe her
when a woman tells you that she loves you
you know you're a wanted man
take some time to think about
what you cannot live without
you won't have it all figured out
you just love her best you can
Track Name: Bottle of Whiskey
In the worst case scenario,
This bottle gets empty before my heart is
I’ve been drinking the ice melt
Seeing your brown eyes
Tasting your lipstick

Pour me another one
Two fingers then two more
I’m taking the high road
Straight down to the floor

I’ve got a bottle of whiskey
Only got half of one now
A bottle of whiskey
And I’ve been drinking my heart out

I heard scotch is from Scotland
Bourbon, Kentucky, Canadian rye
You said it was over
You said you were leaving
Leaving me high and dry

Pour me another one
Two fingers then two more
I’m taking the high road
Straight down to the floor

I’ve got a bottle of whiskey
Only got half of one now
A bottle of whiskey
And I’ve been drinking my heart out

Oh, that first swallow
How it burns in your throat
When this bottle is empty
Then maybe I won’t remember you’re gone

Pour me another one...
