Track Name: Never Too Late For Love
You got what I want baby
I got what you need
So baby get ready
Well I'm down on my knees
Go on and take my money I can make it all back and let me buy you a drink can I ask you to dance
I waited my whole life for somebody like you and it's about damned time all this wishing came true
Well it's never too late for love to fall right into your lap
She walks on water
She moves like a dream
So come on and come over
Wrap yourself around me
She said she don't like liars and can't stand thieves I guess I got two strikes but that's alright with me
I got the rest of tonight to get my story straight and it might take a little while but I'll be worth your wait
Well it's never too late for love to fall right in your lap
You got what I want baby
I got what you need
So baby get ready
Well I'm down on my knees
Go on and take my money I can make it all back and let me buy you a drink can I ask you to dance
I waited my whole life for somebody like you and it's about damned time all this wishing came true
Well it's never too late for love
Never too late for love
Never too late for love to fall right into your lap
Track Name: Posseshun
The rich man knows the cost of everything
But the value of nothing
The preacher says to live life on our knees
But that don't sit right in my stomach
Well a strange voice in this reoccurring dream
Keeps telling me we gotta stand for something
The old man sold his life for minimum wage
But mine is not for sale so keep your change
Yeah their lives were lessons for me
Why do we only want what's been taken away?
Like yesterdays can be saved in our dusty old things
Let's drop the scraps of the past to which we desperately cling
And know that something good
Yeah something good is this way coming
Promise me you'll never ever leave
Even though we both know your lying
Cause even if we grow old holding hands
We still gotta deal with dying
I'm sorry for the countless things I've taken
And all the pretty things I broke
But darling for the scars upon your heart
Darling for the scars upon your heart I apologize the most
Why do we only want what's been taken away?
Like yesterdays can be saved in our dusty old things
Let's drop the scraps of the past to which we desperately cling
Because there's nothing in life that death let's us keep
Darling there ain't nothing in life that death let's us keep
So if we kicked down the door and crept into your house
And we took everything worth talking about
Would you think to thank the thieves
For lightening you load and showing you what you don't need...
Track Name: Four White Walls
Back at the habit again
No time to come down
If our fathers are our models for god then it's the devil for me
So when I finally quit I couldn't get it to stick
I'd always wake up
To four white walls
Shackled by the sheets of my bed
Just thinking
Maybe all of this is just a real bad dream
Like I'd awake surprised to find this whole time I'd been sleeping
Seeking that sweet relief
Well maybe all of this is just a real bad dream
If only we could wake ourselves if only we
Could wake up
Wake up
She said she'd been treading water too long
She's bout to go down
Well daddy never taught her how to swim
She ate a bottle of pills cause she don't like how she feels
And now she...
Wakes up
To four white walls
Firmly strapped to her bed
Just thinking
Maybe all of this is just a real bad dream
Like she'd awake surprised to find this whole time she'd been sleeping
Right next to me
Well maybe all of this is just a real bad dream
If only we could wake ourselves if only we
Could wake up
Wake up
I see the people and I see the trees
And I see good men going down to their knees
Praying for rest and relief they don't seem to recieve
Well I seem to see plenty of everything
Oh and I see the lovers who will never meet
Watching from windows
Scared to death of the streets
Now they say that they know where you go when you're gone
And they sell you a line tied to a hook in your heart
But you feel this sinking feeling in your chest
That maybe all of this is just a real real bad dream
If I could just wake up please
It's about trust and it's about time
And it's about lust and it's about lies
And it's about you and it's about I
And it's about time that we
Wake up
Track Name: Time Machine
So I guess
She meant what she said
When she said she was leaving here
And washed her hands of this whole mess
In a sense
More intense than death
The body of the person you love
Walking around
With a head that'll never forget
So I pour myself a glass of whiskey
Two at a time cause it helps me to forget these
Ghosts of all the lovers and friends
Tonight denies me
Try like hell to hold on
But boy you'll know when that bottle's gone
A little bit about emptiness
Got a filthy conscience
And these hands to match
I'm the man that got everything that he wanted
Then lost it so fast
It made his head spin
Well in an honest
Attempt to drink myself to death
Yeah well I'd awake to the afternoon light
To find that I'd failed again
Even at that
So I pour myself a glass of whiskey
Two at a time cause it helps me to forget these
Ghosts of all the lovers and friends
Tonight denies me
She says there's no place like home
She clicks her heels and then disappears
The past is back in tomorrow's clothes
Trying to sell us another year
Well I was smoking
A sentimental cigarette
We made so many good memories
But I think it's time we put em to bed
Cause I don't have the cash
The time or the means
Or half of the brains it'd take
To build my own time machine
So I pour myself a glass of whiskey
Two at a time cause it helps me to forget these
Ghosts of all the lovers and friends
Tonight denies me
These yesterdays man they're piling up on me
And I can't take it well
I guess the older that I get
The more that I hate waiting
Cause patience is just glorified
Procrastination
Track Name: The Dead, The Deadly & The Dying
They say there's no rest for the wicked
I don't know if I'm wicked
But I sure don't get much sleep
The righteous men they say rest every seventh day
I guess either way
I've got myself a busy week
And until then my friend we're
The dead, the deadly and the dying
The dead, the deadly and the dying
It takes more
Some days it takes more than I can take
I get in my way
Every time I speak
And I think I know
Or I'm going to think
It's the dead
The deadly and the dying
Oh we're the dead
The deadly and the dying
Track Name: Wherever Is Your Heart (Brandi Carlile Cover)
Think we need to find a way back home
You loose so many things you love as you grow
I miss the days when I was just a kid
My fear became my shadow, I swear it did

Wherever is your heart I call home
Wherever is your heart I call home
Though your feet may take you far from me, I know
Wherever is your heart I call home

You made me feel like I was always falling
Always falling down without a place to land
Somewhere in the distance I heard you calling
God it hurts so bad to let go of your hand

Wherever is your heart I call home
Wherever is your heart I call home
Though your feet may take you far from me, I know
Wherever is your heart I call home

Cause even when you're high, you can get low
Even with your friends you love, you're still alone
We always find the darkest place to go
God forgive our minds, cause we were born to roam

Wherever is your heart I call home
Wherever is your heart I call home
Though your feet may take you far from me, I know
Wherever is your heart I call home

Oh God forgive my mind, oh God forgive my mind
When I come home, I'm coming home
Oh God forgive my mind, Oh God forgive my mind
When I come home, I'm coming home
Oh God forgive my mind
There's a road that's long and winding and it's hollering home
I'm calling home
Oh God forgive my mind, oh God forgive my mind
When I come home, I'm coming home

Wherever is your heart I call home
Wherever is your heart I call home
Though your feet may take you far from me, I know
Wherever is your heart I call home
Wherever is your heart I call home
