Track Name: Keep Moving
Lately I've been thinking on
how all this came about
I grew up and out of a small town
Couldn't wait to get myself out
me and my best friend
We grew up driving around
looking for that way out

Said we got to keep it moving
keep it together
'cause the rhythm
never let me down

My guitar in hand
I was only 16 then
Can't even count the doors
the doors that slammed on me
they said "you'll never make it
don't you even try, 'cause this world
it's gonna eat you alive."

But we got to keep it moving
keep it together
'cause the rhythm
never let me down

We got to keep it moving
keep it together
'cause the rhythm
never let me down

no it never let me down
Track Name: Tucson, AZ
I was made to withstand
the most unforgiving nature of man
Like a desert rose
I only need a little bit of water in the
driest of this land

But when it gets too hard for me
when the Gulf of Mexico looks like it's
waving good bye to me
you know where I want to be

It's a hard road
it's a long road to travel
It's a hard road
through the worst and for the better
It's a long road
to Tucson, Arizona

Driving up through the clouds
Catalina Highway winds up around my favorite part of your town
We pull the car over
inhale the pines, walk through them together
and it warms my hear that you're happy
I hope someday I can be

But when it gets too hard for me
when the Gulf of Mexico looks like it's
waving good bye to me
You know where I want to be

It's a hard road
it's a long road to travel
It's a hard road
through the worst and for the better
It's a long road
to Tucson, Arizona

It's a hard road
it's a long road to travel
It's a hard road
through the worst and for the better
It's a long road
to Tucson, Arizona
Track Name: I Don't Even Know
Wind blows all the time on the east coast
I lean my back against a place I can hide
where the high tide carved a space
I can conceal myself
from everyone else
and I don't even know why
that moon looks down on you when you refuse to move
in and out with the motions

Your love is a sunburn on my face
your love is that old t-shirt
that used to take that pain away

You were supposed to be the one who keeps me safe
Now I'm digging through box of records you were throwing away
when I found myself
I tell everyone else
that I don't even know why I tried
when my life stopped, that needle dropped
now I'm letting go
of the let downs

Your love is a sunburn on my face
your love is that old t-shirt
that used to take that pain away

Your love is a sunburn on my face
oh your love,
your love is that old t-shirt
that used to take that pain away

and I don't even know why
I tried
ooh, no I don't even know why
Track Name: Swim
You're an anchor
and I'm a storm
You were calling out into the dark
I think that I was bored
You're an anchor and
your heart's a ship
I'm the wind that blows into them sails
I make you want to tip, babe

You wanna jump right in
made you believe that
you were ever gonna swim

But I knew, I knew, I knew, I knew
I knew what I was doing to you
all along

I'm a Bond girl and
you're an English tea
I'm that martini you're sipping on a boat deck
in a summer breeze
I'm that song that
you wanna sing, baby
but you only, only, only
only know you're humming out of key

Made you believe babe
that you were ever gonna swim

But I knew, I knew, I knew, I knew
I knew what I was doing to you
all along

Yeah, I knew I knew I knew I knew
I knew what I was doing to you
all along
I don't think you know
what you are gonna do
What you're gonna do without this
I knew, I knew, I knew,
I knew, I knew, I knew,
I knew what I was doing to you all along
Track Name: Bring it on Back
Oh yeah, bring it on back now
I said, oh yeah
Bring it on back

This is a soul shake down
a break down
feet are stopping, party bumpin back
to 1974
I feel a rhythm breakin down the doors in our city
I'm feelin a groove, I'm feelin gritty
gotta hustle baby 'cause the shakedown
it's gettin into me now
don't you feel it movin through you?

Oh yeah, bring it on back now
I said, oh yeah
Bring it on back

This is a lockdown, shutdown
rhythm right in your face
everybody's groovin to the
boom boom ba doop badoop boomin of that funky bass
Lady's grab your man bump along
we got a rhythm thing goin on
If we do this right
it's gonna go all night

And then we break it,
we break it down, yeah

Oh yeah, bring it on back now
I said oh yeah, bring it on back

I said oh yeah, bring it on back now
said oh yeah, bring in on back

We put this thing together and then
we break it down

I said oh yeah
Track Name: Fall Back
Remember when
Remember when we were together
stayed up all night laughing at each other
In the park, we were singing to the stars in the dark
till the sunrise
I look at you
you pick an eyelash of my cheek and make a wish
then you were gone like a ghost
you never missed me at all

What did you do
I was dreaming up a reason to make you stay
now I can't talk to you

Fall back
into the way we, way we used to be
to the way we used to be
Fall back
into the way we, way we used to be

I take it all back
I'm acting up
whatever I said or didn't say
I didn't mean
I didn't mean, I didn't mean to lead us into dust, babe I'll
I'll make it clean
never thought you being gone would this much

What did you do
you started dreaming up a reason to leave babe
now I can't talk to you

Fall back
into the way we, way we used to be
to the way we used to be
Fall back
into the way we, way we used to be
I fall back


Fall back
into the way we, way we used to be
into the way we used to be
I Fall back
mmm, into the way we, way we used to be
to the way we used to be
I take it all back
take it all back
to the way you used to look at me
I take it all
I take it all
I take it all back
ooh I take it all back
I take it all back
take it all back
to the way you used to look at me
Track Name: Little Havana
No I'm not gonna worry bout it, hey yeah
no I'm not gonna cry,
No I'm not gonna worry bout you
now don't you worry bout me

I'm gonna sit right here until I chill out
gonna let the sound of the ocean drown it all out
you can come in this space if you're ready to work it out
but I'm gonna sit right here, gonna bring it all down

'cause if you're gonna rush me through the good times
then let the bad wash me out to sea
I'm gonna sail my mind to that horizon
looks like a straight line for me
on a choppy sea

But I'm not gonna worry bout it, hey yeah
no I'm not gonna cry,
No I'm not gonna worry bout you
now don't you worry bout me

Thank you for coming around to help me wind down
I been full of knots, I can't breathe
gonna break the wine out, yeah
And you can come in this space if you're ready to help me out
but I'm gonna sit right here until the wine runs out

'cause if you're gonna rush me through the good times
then let the bad wash me out to sea
I'm gonna sail my mind to that horizon
looks like a straight line for me
on a choppy sea

But I'm not gonna worry bout it, hey yeah
no I'm not gonna cry, mm
No I'm not gonna worry bout you
don't, don't you worry bout, don't you worry bout
don't you worry bout me

and don't you worry bout me

No I'm not gonna worry bout it, hey yeah
no I'm not gonna cry,
No I'm not gonna worry bout you
so don't you worry bout me
Track Name: Departed
I used to rely on
the way you'd help me get my shine on
there was a mystery around you that nobody could
put their finger on
and I didn't know myself
and you played that version of you so well
that I couldn't tell
you poured yourself into
all the cracks I couldn't fill

There ain't no place you can hide
where I can't find you now
and ain't nothing that you're gonna say
I haven't already thought about

You really take my breath away
it's like I couldn't unravel
the lie where it started
or the myth that you imparted
Now there's an empty room
and it echoes where your heart lived
in that space it left behind
when it departed

Now there ain't no place you can hide
where I can't find you now
and aint nothing that you're gonna say
I haven't already figured out
and you can pull down that shade
take all of that light away
I never wanted to lose you darlin
that's what the hardest part is

And there ain't no place you can hide
where I can't find you now
and aint nothing that you're gonna say
I haven't already figured out
and you can pull down that shade
take all of that light away
I never wanted to lose you darlin
that's what the hardest part is

It's what the hardest part is
never wanted to lose
never wanted to lose you darlin
Track Name: Mystery
Why you wanna treat me so bad?
Why you wanna walk away mess around
and think i'll ever take you back?

said, "Let me in, I'm a changed man
I been born again."
Now you strut back into that groove
you wanna burn me again?

ooooh, it's a mystery to me
It's a mystery to me

This ain't a problem
between a woman and a man
I'm talkin to you now,
human to human
Now I don't mean to put your struggle out
but I learned a long time ago
that love is what it's all about

Now I just want you to understand
it's a mystery to me
it's a mystery to me
It's no mystery to me

Now I just want you to understand
I'm talkin to you now, human
it's a mystery to me
it's a mystery to me
It's no mystery to me

mmm it's a mystery to me
it's a mystery to me
ooooh it's a mystery to me
it's a mystery to me
it's a mystery to me to me
all right
it's no mystery to me
Track Name: Canary in a Coal Mine
I'm not gonna play
but you can play your own game
I'm not gonna pay, pay, pay
but you can pay your own way

No I'm not gonna play
but you can play your own game
and I'm not gonna pay, pay, pay
but you can pay your own way

I don't wanna be
a canary in a coal mine
the deeper I go into this part of your mind
the air gets thick
and poison thin
and sun don't shine

I'm not gonna play
but you can play your own game
I'm not gonna pay, pay, pay
but you can pay your own way

No, I'm not gonna play
but you can play your own game
I'm not gonna pay, pay, pay
but you can pay your own way

This time I don't wanna hide
in any tunnel you can find
I'm not gonna sing
I'm just gonna fly
out into the sky

I'm not gonna play
but you can play your own game
I'm not gonna pay, pay, pay
but you can pay your own way

No, I'm not gonna play
but you can play your own game
I'm not gonna pay, pay, pay
but you can pay your own way
Track Name: I Can Sleep When I'm Dead
Hey!

You gotta wake up
early in the morning
gotta keep up
nobody's gonna wait for you to show up
nobody's hear if you don't turn up
and come out singin

You can never let a moment pass
don't let it go to waste cause anybody here
will take it trying to make their own way
Worry bout your problems, worry what you did wrong
stop and catch your breath when the sand is gone

Nobody's waiting on you, no
better things are coming to you

Hey, Hey,
You gotta speak up, the opportunity will miss you
turn the heat up, it's time to force the issue
better step up, it's yours if you take it
if you ease up, you ain't never gonna make it

I been waiting for the right time, well
this IS my time
don't want to cry about the things I couldn't do
been running round in circles talking how my feet hurt
I'm on the train now
I can sleep when I'm dead

Nobody's waiting on you, no
but better things are coming to you
Track Name: Victoria Ave.
Don't you know
all I need is you?


When I saw you
standing in the background
and your blue eyes shining through
the crowd
might swallow you whole again
but I'd still look, I'd still look
I'd still look, you know
that I'd still find you

Don't you know
all I need is you?
Don't you know
all I need is you?

Then I saw you
standing in the foreground
and them blue eyes held mine too
the crowd
would never swallow you whole again
'cause I know now, I know
I know now how you feel it too

if I could, I'd do it all over again
keep you to myself
I wish that night would never end

Don't you know
all I need is you?
Don't you know
all I need is you?

all I need is you

Don't you know
all I need is you?
Don't you know
all I need is you?
Don't you know
all I need is you?
Don't you know
all I need is you?
