Never Lookin' Back

length: 4:14

Walkin' blow walkin' slowly
Walkin' blow walkin' slowly
I was a
Try to forget you like I said you
Wanna tell this
Rollin' walkin' walkin' slowly

And I'm never lookin' back
I said all I need to see
I don't want no more
Be there I'm never lookin', lookin' back.

One thing make it all right
One thing, I can get you through the night.
Don't need another
While I'm leaving 'cause I'm gonna lose my mind
One thing make it all right

And I'm never lookin' back
I said all I need to see
I don't want no more
Be there I'm never lookin'.
All I know is something not change, gonna change
Show me

And I'm never lookin' back.

And I'm never lookin' back
I said all I need to see
I don't want no more
Be there I'm never lookin', lookin' back.

Come on Over

length: 3:54
Two lane is slick, black, heavy as the storm streaks down
Come on over baby
Voice on the radio, thunder clap drownin' out
Come on over baby
What has you feeling so trapped alone with your doubts

She says
You ain't broken, you're just bent like me
She says
I'll show you something that will set you free, set you free
She says
Howl at the wind, cry on the shoulder of the road
Or you can come on over, come on over baby

If you were a bridge yeah you'd be going up in flames
Come on over baby
It's like you're trying to outrun yesterday
Come on over baby
Tell me what's holding you back, what rattles your chains

She says
You ain't broken, you're just bent like me
She says
I'll show you something that will set you free, set you free
She says
Howl at the wind, cry on the shoulder of the road
Or you can come on over, come on over baby

She says
You ain't broken, you're just bent like me
She says
I'll show you something that will set you free, set you free
She says
Howl at the wind, cry on the shoulder of the road
Or you can come on over, come on over baby

Yer Blues

length: 4:40
Yes I'm lonely wanna die
Yes I'm lonely wanna die
If I ain't dead already
Ooh girl you know the reason why

In the morning wanna die
In the evening wanna die
If I ain't dead already
Ooh girl you know the reason why

My mother was of the sky
My father was of the earth
But I am of the universe
And you know what it's worth
I'm lonely wanna die
If I ain't dead already
Ooh girl you know the reason why

The eagle picks my eye
The worm he licks my bone
I feel so suicidal
Just like Dylan's Mr. Jones
Lonely wanna die
If I ain't dead already
Ooh girl you know the reason why

Black cloud crossed my mind
Blue mist round my soul
Feel so suicidal
Even hate my rock 'n' roll
Wanna die yeah wanna die
If I ain't dead already
Ooh girl you know the reason why

Show Me the Way Back Home

length: 5:23
I met a rag doll with button eyes
Looking so lost and cast aside
Begging spare change beneath the shadows
Of a sunset street light

I dug down deep into my pockets
Couple dollars was all that I had
She reached out like it was treasure
She looks so far away when she said
And she said

Show me the way back home
'Cause I've been out there running
For way too long
And all that I've learned

And just when you think
You've chased down every last mile
There's always another one
I need someone to show me the way back home

So many lost souls along the ride
It wasn't so long that soul was mine
Feeling forsaken, down on my knees
Needing some mercy, asking please

Show me the way back home
'Cause I've been out there running
For way too long
And all that I've learned

And just when you think
You've chased down every last mile
There's always another one
I need someone to show me the way back home
Oh yeah, ooh oh

And all that I've learned and just when you think
You've chased down every last mile
There's always another one, I need someone, yeah
Yeah, I need someone to show me the way back home

So many lost souls along the ride
It wasn't so long that soul was mine

Cold

length: 3:59
It's cold enough in here, I can see my breath
If I was breathing, if I was breathing
It's like I'm frozen still in some kind of dream
Watching you leaving, watching you leaving

How could you changed so fast there?
When did your heart grow cold?
When did you lose all feeling?
When did these promises become stories and never told?

When did you turn away?
When did you stop believing?
Where did the love we had go?
When did it get so cold?

My fingertips are numb, you used to keep me warm
Now I'm just freezing, now I'm just freezing
The snow is coming down right here in my heart
How did we get to the end?

I though we were just at the start
How could you changed so fast there?
When did your heart grow cold?
When did you lose all feeling?

When did these promises become stories and never told?
When did you turn away?
When did you stop believing?
Where did the love we had go?

When did it get so cold?
How could you changed so fast there?
When did your heart grow cold?
When did you lose all feeling?

When did these promises become stories and never told?
When did you turn away?
When did you stop believing?
Where did the love we had go?

When did it get so cold?
Where did the love we had go?
When did it get so cold?
When did it get so cold?

Oh, Pretty Woman

Anywhere the Wind Blows

length: 5:29
When, when the first light
Finally broke and I could see
Lost, I wasn't lost at all
Just wasn't where I thought I'd be

If I'm strong enough, if I live long enough
I just might come this way again
And I've been here before
All I know for sure is I'm gone like smoke

Anywhere the wind blows
Anywhere the rain falls
(You might find me)
Rising for the ashes, you never know
(I might be dead)

Always been a winner till I'll stir the darkness
Dig a well deeper than it needs to go
Always been ready to roll where it takes me
Anywhere the wind blows

Then, then I began to walk
Across the sinking sand
Search, search for a drink
That wouldn't killed a drowning man

And every step I take, every choice I make
I'm not much further 'round the bench
I don't wave goodbye, there's not need to cry
That's a-how I go

Anywhere the wind blows
Anywhere the rain falls
(You might find me)
Rising for the ashes, you never know
(I might be dead)

Always been a winner till I'll stir the darkness
Dig a well deeper than it needs to go
Always been ready to roll where it takes me
Anywhere, anywhere the wind blows

I won't tell you lies
And I won't dry your tears
You can wonder why
But I'll be far from you

If I'm strong enough, if I live long enough
I just might pass this way again
And I've been here before
All I know for sure is I'm gone like smoke

Anywhere the wind blows
Anywhere the rain falls
(You might find me)
Rising for the ashes, you never know
(I might be dead)

Always been a winner till I'll stir the darkness
Dig a well deeper than it needs to go
Always been ready to roll where it takes me
Anywhere the wind blows

Anywhere the wind blows

Dark Side of Love

length: 4:20
Don't wanna want you, baby
Don't wanna want you like I do
Don't wanna want you, baby
And watch you play me like a fool

I've seen the dark side of love before
Girl, it looks a lot like you

Well, if we're there for each other
Why does it feel so good?
I know we're bad for each other
Well, let's just say it's understood

I've seen the dark side of love before
Girl, it looks a lot like you

One of these days I'm gonna rise above
And never fall back again
One of these days I'll go a little too far
And the psycho done it again, no, no

One of these days I'm going to rise above
And never fall back again
One of these days I'll go a little too far
And the psycho done it again, no, no

Don't wanna want you, baby
Don't wanna want you like I do
Don't wanna want you, baby
And let you play me like a fool

I've seen the dark side of love before
Girl, it looks a lot like you
I've seen the dark side of love before
Girl, it looks a lot like you

I've seen the dark side of loving before
Girl, it looks a lot like you

Heat of the Sun

length: 5:23
You, you burn me down
Every space of a touch and a smile
Somehow when I come undone
Even now in the darkness I can feel

Oh, I can feel the heat of the sun
Why, I don't know why
It was you that found me so lost
You reached out and gone was the cold

The cold empty nights and all that I know
Was I could feel the heat of the sun
Then I turn my face, look to the sky
And baby, there you are, oh, there you are

Shining on me, warm on my skin
So real that I can feel the heat of the sun
I turn my face, look to the sky
And baby, there you are, oh ho, there you are

Shining on me, warm on my skin
So real that I can feel the heat of the sun
Yeah, heat of the sun
So real
So real

Round and Round

length: 3:47
There's a highway, does my thinking for me
Keeps me rolling in this blaze of glory
And the wheels on the bus go round and round
Leading me to where I'm bound
And the highway does my thinking for me

Yeah, this six-string does my talking for me
Come on, listen, let it tell you a story
And the days and the nights go round and round
Sun comes up and the moon goes down
And this six-string does my talking for me

Oh, my baby does my breathing for me
Keeps me going when the way get stormy
All the wheels on the bus go round and round
Leading me to where I'm bound
And my baby does my breathing for me

All the days and the nights go round and round
Sun comes up and the moon goes down
And this six-string does my talking for me
All the wheels on the bus go round and round
And the highway does my thinking for me

The Wire

length: 3:04
If I were a crow, I wouldn't have no fear of heights
For watching this old world's fragile below
I don't have a net, don't have no jet wings, I can't fly
If I miss a step, yeah, that's how I'd go

Oh, the wire keeps getting higher, keeps getting higher
I ain't looking down no more
On the wire, I don't know why
Tell me what I'm up here for

If I was a king, somebody would take the risk for me
I'll just sit and watch them walk the line
But if my night burns out like a match in gasoline
If I take the fall, well, it's all mine

Oh, the wire keeps getting higher, keeps getting higher
I ain't looking down no more
Up on the wire, I don't know why
Tell me what I'm up here for

Oh, the wire keeps getting higher, keeps getting higher
I ain't looking down no more
On the wire, I don't know why
Tell me what I'm up here for

Higher, on the wire
Tell me what I'm up here for
I'm on the wire, on the wire
I ain't looking down no more

Who's Gonna Catch You Now

length: 4:31
Every time you fell I was there to catch you
Every time you called I picked up the phone
I threw you a lifeline every time you started sinking
Are you ready to do it alone?

Who's gonna go out and find you
When you're lost out in the night?
Who's gonna be the voice that tells you
Everything's all right?

Who's gonna be the one to pick you up
When you fall down?
Tell me who, who's gonna catch you now?
Every time you cried I was there to tell you

Every single tear will help you grow
I hope you will understand my silence will make you stronger
So I'm letting you do it alone
Who's gonna go out and find you

When you're lost out in the night?
Who's gonna be the voice that tells you
Everything's all right?
Who's gonna be the one to pick you up

When you fall down?
Tell me who, who's gonna catch you now?
I'll always love you and I hope you'll always know
The best way to help you was to let you go

Who's gonna go out and find you
When you're lost out in the night?
Who's gonna be the voice that tells you
Everything's all right?

Who's gonna be the one to pick you up
When you fall down?
Tell me who, who's gonna catch you now?

Backwater Blues

length: 7:08
Said when it rains five days and skies turn dark as night
Said when it rains five days and skies turn dark as night
There's trouble's takin' place in the lowlands at night

And I'm backwater blues done call me to pack my things
And go and I'm backwater blues done call me to pack my things
And go 'cause my house fell down, can't live there no more, no more

When it rains five days and the skies turn dark as night
Said when it rains five days and the skies turn dark as night
There's trouble's takin' place in the lowlands tonight

I woke up this mornin', can't even get out of my door
I woke up this mornin', can't even get out of my door
There's been so much trouble, make a poor boy wonder where he wanna go

And I'm backwater blues done call me to pack my things
And go and I'm backwater blues done call me to pack my things
And go 'cause my house fell down, can't go there no more, no

When it thunders and lightnin' and the wind begins to blow
When it thunders and lightnin' and the wind begins to blow
There's thousands of people ain't got no where to go, no

And I'm backwater blues done call me to pack my things
And go and I'm backwater blues done call me to pack my things
And go 'cause my house fell down, can't go there no more, no more

Oh, the rain's pourin' baby, yes I went out to the lonesome
High old lonesome hill I went out, high old lonesome hill
I looked down on that place where I used to live

And I'm backwater blues done call me to pack my things
And go and I'm backwater blues done call me to pack my things
And go 'cause my house fell down, can't go home no more, no

And I'm backwater blues and I'm backwater blues
Yeah, my house fell down, can't go home no more, no more, no more

Strut

length: 3:37
Instrumental

Butterfly

length: 3:34
It's like a butterfly in a hurricane
It's like candle lights in the pouring rain
It's like fireflies gathered on the sun
My chances with you are a million to one

Like a driftwood on an ocean wave
That gets tossed and turned like you're doing to me
I was tight up but now I'm coming undone
My chances with you are a million to one

It's like a butterfly in a hurricane
It's like a butterfly in a hurricane

It's like a gunfight when all I got is a knife
Like a lost cause trying to turn back time
Like a double down with a suicide king
I'm DOA, baby, you're killing me

I'm at the starting gate after the race is won
My chances with you are a million to one

It's like a butterfly in a hurricane
It's like a butterfly in a hurricane

I don't care, I'm jumping in
It's hard enough to find the real thing
I don't care if it's a million to one
You're the one for me, yeah

It's like a butterfly in a hurricane
I'm getting beat up but I can take the pain
I got one shot, don't know how it will end
Sometimes baby, the losers win

It's like a butterfly in a hurricane
It's like a butterfly in a hurricane
It's like a butterfly in a hurricane
It's like a butterfly in a hurricane, oh yeah
Oh, in a hurricane

Cryin' Shame

length: 3:31
Say, say what you gotta say
Blame, blame who you gonna blame
It ain't your fault, it's never your fault
Looks like you got framed ?

You got a cryin' shame

Run, run where you wanna run
Don't, don't say it was done, it's done
I won't be waitin', nobody's waitin'
I've known your evil ways

You got a cryin' shame
You got a cryin' shame
Oh, woo

Beg, beg if you wanna beg
Bad, baby, you made that bad
And I was solid for you, so solid for you
That doesn't change a thing

You got a cryin' shame
And you got a cryin' shame
You got a cryin' shame
You got a cryin' shame

You gonna cry, yeah
People will cry, you're next

Baby the Rain Must Fall

length: 4:08
Baby, sometimes the rain must fall
Somethings in this world you can't change at all
And some nights dreams are like broken mirrors
Shattered all around

If I could I would chase all the clouds away
Make every shadow fade
And I'll build a place, there'd be no tears at all
Sometimes baby, the rain must fall

And baby, this thing called gravity
Baby, keeps us prisoners on the ground
The world can get so heavy on your shoulders
Hey, that it might break it down

If I could I would chase all the clouds away
Make every shadow fade
I'll build a place, there'd be no tears at all
Sometimes baby, the rain must fall

If I could I would chase all the clouds away
Make every shadow fade
I'll build a place, there'd be no tears at all
Sometimes baby, sometimes baby, the rain must fall
