Track Name: Concrete
Concrete on the floor, beggars roam for more, just trying to find a little change

And it’s just like you said that night to me in October, we’re getting older, we’re getting bolder, we’re getting colder it seems

Cocaine and concrete, colliding again, oh that cocaine and concrete

Old dogs eyes are getting clouded, seems like my mind is too, stain glass windows are hard to see through

And only time can tell what happens for a reason, and that’s when I will lay my troubles down, lay my troubles down

Cocaine and concrete colliding again, oh that cocaine and concrete, cocaine and concrete

And it seems like we all close our eyes and walk on by without a hi or goodbye, goodbye for now

Cocaine and concrete colliding again, oh that cocaine and concrete, cocaine and concrete, cocaine and concrete
Track Name: All She Wrote
Well im waiting over here
Im just waiting for you to appear

So ill paint this picture in my mind
Holding back all the time

What I seem to always say
Ill just see how things go

And the old familiar faces
That I don’t even know

Different days, different nights
All the times I said it right
Go on your way that’s all I know
And I guess that, I guess that’s all she wrote
I guess that’s all she wrote

Well Ill head back to Nashville
See how things go

All those wasted times
I cant find the truth on my own

Wish to take your hand in mine
Spin you around the room a few times

And we’ll sing the night away
While we plan our escape

Different days, different nights
All the times I said it right
Go on your way that’s all I know
And I guess that,

I guess that’s all she wrote

All she wrote

All she wrote
Track Name: I Don't Feel It Any More
Oh the whispered words that come out of her
I can hear them I can feel them
I don’t understand

Oh the chapel bells they ring and they sing
Crying only oh so lonely
To talk about

As time goes on
I don’t feel it any more
Anymore oh oh
Oh the whispered words
Unlock that door

Oh and I can tell you’re a wishing well
So ill throw my coin on in
And wish again

Oh and yesterday is gone away
And tomorrow is a new day
So they say

As time goes on
I don’t feel it any more
Anymore oh oh
Oh the whispered words
Unlock that door
Track Name: Banks Of Blessings
Along a true and winding path through the trees and down the train tracks, rain streaking on my window reminds me of the tears you didn't show

Cause Romeo and Juliette are two different lovers, and banks of blessings have come to the others, I will wait for you I will wait for you

I heard something falling in the floor was it my dignity did I leave it at the door, it's hard to believe in something you can't see but you know it's there

Cause Romeo and Juliette are two different lovers, and banks of blessings have come to the others, I will wait for you I will wait for you

The grass is green with envy, stone cold feet are going no where and over the years I've realized happiness doesn't lie in my possessions eyes

Cause Romeo and Juliette are two different lovers, and banks of blessings have come to the others, I will wait for you I will wait for you

I will wait for you
I will wait for you
I will wait for you
Track Name: Running
So I walked outta town, to clear my mind
Seems to be achin’ all of the time
Then I drove till the gas was dry and low
Sing that song to save my soul

Cowboys and Indians
Both just fighting for their kin
Oh and now I’m running
Running from something again

There she goes again
With her eyes like some kind of sin
Held me down just like that wraith
Ill tell you right now I’ve lost all of my faith

Cowboys and Indians
Both just fighting for their kin
Oh and now I’m running
Running from something again

Fell on Fast to the back of the room
Made myself a fist and said this ones for you
Played my demons an old familiar song
Shook my head and said right on right on

Cigarette smoking in the outside wind
Hold your breath and hold it in
And it seems like all this was just something to pretend
And I guess she just played him for a fool in the end
Track Name: Country Girl
Country girl, country girl, I need you inside of my world
Now more than ever
Oh you’re a crazy dreamer, well hey I am too
How do you do

How you going to get back to me now, how you going to get back to me
Oh I wait I beg I plead happily

I guess you changed your mind girl, I guess you’ve changed you mind, oh it happens all the time, all the time.

Country girl, country girl, I need you inside of my world
Now more than ever
Oh you’re a crazy dreamer, well hey I am too
How do you do

I guess your train is leaving town, I guess your headed homebound oh I wait I beg I plead can’t you see

I guess you’ve got no time girl, I guess you got no time, for me I know I’m feeling free, finally

Country girl, country girl, I need you inside of my world
Now more than ever
Oh you’re a crazy dreamer, well hey I am too
How do you do
How do you do
