Track Name: I Don't Believe You
When the storm is coming
I ignore your warning
When I’m away from you
I do the things that I don’t want to do
So here I sit defeated
Broken down and beaten
But you believe in me
The man I am is not the one you see

I don’t always love you
And I do not treat you
As well as you deserve
The truth I claim is not the one I serve
But you will pick me up and
Dust me off with your hand
Cause you’ve forgiven me
The man I was is not the one you see

I don’t believe you
I don’t believe you
I don’t believe you at all
Track Name: Sun Won't Shine
I’m losing upper hand
Work on my summer tan
My days are spent alone
So baby come on home
Come on home

Where the sun won’t shine
Where the sun won’t shine
I’m feeling anxious but I got nowhere to go
Where the sun won’t shine anymore

The hours pass me by
I miss my nine to five
My confidence is gone
I bet you hate this song
So sing along
Track Name: This Life
It's who we are,
It's who we're not,
It's what you feel,
It's what you got
This life, this love

It's the losses,
It's the gains,
It's the thunder, lightning and the rain
This life, this love

It's the spillin' of the blood,
It's the Father,
It's the Son
This life, this love
Track Name: Racilia
Racilia, I'm so tired
Stretched out like a wire
Been fightin' all these days,
Been hidin' in this maze
Oh, my Racilia

On a windy day, I feel you from afar
On a clear night, I see you in the stars
Oh Racilia, Im comin' home
Yeah, Racilia, I'm comin' home

Racilia, I’m sorry I lied
“Not one man shall die.”
They’re breakin’ me down while they’re making my crown
Praise my name, I don’t hear a sound
Oh, Racilia, I’m coming home
Oh, Racilia, won’t you bring me home

Racilia, I'm so tired
Stretched out like a wire
Been fightin’ all these days,
Been hidin’ in this maze
Oh, Racilia
Track Name: Come Home
Must be exciting when everything is riding on you, boy
Must be exciting when everything is riding on you, boy
While you’re off fighting, I’m here fighting my own head
The house is quiet and my patience hangs by a thread
Just come home
Come home
Just come home
Come home

Must be exciting when everything is riding on you, boy
Must be exciting when everything is riding on you, boy
The children sleep, yet here I weep at a whisper
I keep the peace, but I don’t know how much longer
Just come home
Come home
Just come home
Come home
Just come home
Come home
Just come home
Come home
Track Name: Sidetracked
Church says “Amen”
Feeling good, I’m cleansed of my sin
But then
The devil comes creeping in
And I’m sidetracked in the morning

God said
“Adam and Eve
You better stay away from that tree.”
But then
The devil came slithering in
They got sidetracked from the warning

And I close my eyes
Oh, I close them so tight
Searching for the light
And I’m sidetracked in the morning
Track Name: I Just Wanna Be a Star
Follow the road, where does it go?
I don’t know
I just wanna be a star
I just wanna be a star
Soon as it starts, figures and charts
No, no, no
I just wanna be a star
I just wanna be a star

Believe me
Believe me, I promise I mean it
I mean it
So release me
Release me and watch me go

Pitchfork reviews our indie blues
Perfect 10
I just wanna be a star
I just wanna be a star
Headlining shows, salary grows
Here we go
I just wanna be a star I just wanna be star
Track Name: Midwest Charm
Little town in black and white,
Just a single traffic light
Vacant to the left and the right
Race you on the count of three,
Wave at everyone you see
Ain't it such a beautiful sight?

Where you wanna go tonight,
why don't you just let me drive?
I will take you down to the farm
Baby, look up in the sky,
Ain't a thing that money buys,
Just enjoy the midwest charm

Where do you go when nobody knows
Where you been and who you wanna be?
Come downtown, I'll show you around
Tell me if it's heaven you see

Summer swimming at the pool,
Sunday morning Sunday school
Throw the ball around in the yard
Windy roads without a line,
Dusty air at harvest time
Churches outnumber the bars

Take you to the county fair,
In the cool September air
Oh, the things that we're gonna see
Tractor pulls, elephant ears
I know it all sounds weird,
But man, it's home to me
Track Name: In The Wind
I wrote a song about you, but I lost it in the wind
I've been searching everywhere,
Don't think I'll find it again
Is it high upon a mountain,
Is it caught amongst the trees?
Did it board an airplane, did it sail across the sea?

And if someday it finds you,
Wherever you may be
Won't you pick it up and write it down
then sing it back to me?
Track Name: Us Against The World
When I was young, I had a dream
That I would find someone who met my standards
But as I grew, I finally learned
That life is better off without the answers
When I was 17, my favorite kind of films
Were all the ones where love was found
But then the movie ends

So here we are, four years so far
The spark is over but the flame’s just started
I know it seems longer than that
We’re still connected even when we’re parted
When I turned 22, I knew that it was you
Regardless of the current trends
But then the wedding ends

I’m still in love with you and the things you do
Drive me crazy
Oh, I can’t survive without you baby
Time only makes us strong as we go along
Here together
Oh it’s us against the world forever

Then after 22, I’m still in love with you
Regardless of the current trends
We’ll be together till the end
