Calafrio 05:02
How many ways can I make somebody happy today and how many times did you helped em change their mind about the way that things are going in their lives It might be hard We’re just trying to do our part A shining arc-light falls on everything every day and every night It’s shining on It’s shining on It’s shining on It’s called Calafrio We take it with us wherever we go Me and my amigos Living on Calafrio The cooler we are the better it gets We’re never to far from all of friends Having a good time out in the sunshine knowing that everything will be alright

Big Fan 04:02
And It was out of my hands You were totally way out of your head But I felt I knew I knew what to do I didn’t have a choice it was out of the blue and you’d never fallen down like that before You’d never spun around I can’t ignore anymore these things It’s just my heart and it sings It sings It sings And I’m a big fan of everything that you do I want to make sure your making it through Come on now and think about the possibilities that we have ahead and we’re holding the keys You say it’s rock and roll when you’re out of control You’re there until the end but you’ve still gotta know It’s time to go home but you won’t go alone You say it’s rock and roll when you’re out control This time everything’s right in line I tied it all together and I saw every sign I didn’t think you’d bounce back quite that fast Didn’t think I’d forget about the past never lasts, never dies It’s just my head and it cries, it cries, it cries ahhhhhh I really only remember one occasion when I made a comment about your reputation I never thought it’d affect our relationship now look now look now
3.
Riptide 04:35
Undone by my own design Yeah snow-blind to every sign Same old brand of sabotage Caught up in the same mirage Keeping one foot out the door Like this time and the time before I’ll be shrinking away like the waning moon Then I’ll wax poetic when I hear the tune Should I flip the script should I just skip town What am i supposed to do when it all goes down Not quite what you need but you keep me around What am i supposed to do when it all goes down Cant catch a break Can’t even think Cuz my mind is racing I’m on the brink Didn’t want her here Didn’t want her gone Like a riptide is pulling me Into a song Just cant get my head on straight My brain just wont accommodate Some things never reach my heart But I knew that from the very start Should I flip the script should I just skip town What am i supposed to do when it all goes down This makes me wanna drink Wishing things could be just fine another place another time Maybe I should just fess up Knowing things will be alright another place another time

Able Archer 03:12
Don’t drag me down Don’t talk to me Don’t mess around Don’t laugh at me Don’t watch me fall Don’t cry for me Don’t make me small Don’t die for me Don’t watch me drown Say a prayer for me Don’t tell me what I could never be We all just need somebody We need somebody We need somebody We need somebody Just resurrect The ghost of me Don’t apologize Out of sympathy I’m here right now So talk to me Let’s play around Just laugh with me Fall down with me Get high with me We made it here Chaotically

Neil Young 04:08
I was on my own with a heart of gold I heard this song on the radio 7 in the mornin and its time to go Just one thing that I got to know Is our life gonna get easier Is our life gonna get any easier I'm a million miles from my home firestorm burns the hill that I know I hear Neil Young on the radio Singing about an old man with a heart of gold Stripped of a life it was taken away They broke him down they left him whole Out there's something that I gotta see I don’t know if it was meant to be Out there’s something that I gotta know Its over now and I cant let go Its all alright Time gets tight Far away world closer to me Falling wayward souls to be I was sitting there in the bar alone The same song playin on the radio (If) the old man can’t cope - how can I Take at Look at my life, as it passes by Is our life gonna get any easier? Our life’s gonna get easier!!! Far away world closer to me Falling wayward souls to be Time to put it down Time to go alone we’ve been goin and goin and gone Will we make it? - that depends Or Maybe it’s just how, this song ends I'm a million miles from my home firestorm burns the hill that I know Far away world closer to me Falling wayward souls to be

9 AM 03:28
Your fears, your scars, I like you the way that you are All your dark places and multiple faces, I like you the way that you are So never go, I like all the things that you know So many traces and beautiful spaces you’re often just too scared to show Let’s go, let’s go 9AM born again, wide awake sleeping in We watch the sun set and then I gravitate to your light again 2AM Settled in, We’ve fallen into something so let’s try another day of it and I’m gonna lay everything on the line Your downs and outs, I love when you scream and you shout All your emotions are drops in the oceans I like everything you’re about So never change, don’t clean-up and don’t rearrange Nothing is perfect and that’s how we work it no matter how often it rains Let’s go, let’s go 9AM born again, wide awake, sleeping in We watch the sun set and then I gravitate to your light again 2AM Settled in, (and) We’ve fallen into something so let’s try another day of it and I’m gonna lay everything on the line

The Plan 04:56
Tonight we’re gonna take the town down Tomorrow we’re gonna regret what we did but not right now and not out loud I’ve been working on a plan to become a better man It’s gonna take me turning a-round everything I’ve learned up until now We know time is up We know what is wrong We know what is strong and the difference has to come from us Tomorrow We won’t forget what was done (and) it won’t be gone but you’ll push us on I’ve been working on a plan To become a better man It’s gonna take me turning a-round Everything I’ve learned up until now We know time is up What know what is strong we know what is wrong and the difference has to come from us We waited til now All these changes are taking us way too long Don’t doubt The courage it takes to admit your mistakes And move on No more Abuses that lead to excuses and outright lies the reality that we all see who is that person I know that it’s not me Let’s go now We needed this for so long
8.
Stumbling In 04:05
I was long gone before I went away I didn’t have what it takes There was something in your eyes Struck out when you walked in Blacked out in a tailspin I Wasn’t thinking right that night this won't be the first time it's crashing on me I know someday you’re gonna find a place to rest your weary mind but when? Now I'm standing in the light Can't you see the stars shining bright for you Standing in the light That's the best I'll ever do Well I’m not scared anymore Like the time before All i ever wanted were the simple things in life nothin more, nothing more Throttle wide open on the 442 Swallowing pills just to see what they do yah Stumbling in - Stumbling out- It's was all over when you started to shout HEY! Are ya hearing me now? Now I'm standing in the light Can't you see the stars shining bright for you Standing in the light That's the best I'll ever do Yah It’s all that I can scream about for a minute Life’s what I dream about with you in it Don’t walk away What’s left to say
9.
It’s really all the same although the times have changed just another game that we have to play I like to entertain I wanna feel the pain I wanna know how it’s gonna be when you decide that you’re bored and you’re done with me Now more than ever before you find me belly-up to the bar How about I take you to the show How about I open the door just to let you know Someday you’re going to tell me what you like doing So I can take your breath away again If I was the son of Steve Garvey Maybe you’d see things my way Or at least see me again My father would come home and tell me “son go about be a Garvey” He would tell me I could win not that I never should begin The only way he ever played was with all out desire, it’s insane He’s on the television and I’m at home I’m watching dad run the bases but I’m alone He’s going to first, he’s rounding third My old man sure could play He’s coming home in fifteen days
10.
We get there every time Whenever I’m alone I close my eyes and get to thinking and everything starts to feel right Whenever we’re together we don’t need to say anything no not at all We may like it here But we’ll run away again And be fine on the other side I will go to lengths that you will never know and I will be there every time I will take every lesson that we learned together and Make the most until we cross every line With every passing day We do a lot to get a little We find a way to just get by It might take forever But we’ve got that kind of time Don’t need to wonder why And we always want to learn So we take another turn It goes on and on Yeah we never want to burnt So we take another turn It goes on and on
11.
Promises and diamonds and labels and silence all because somebody said we should try this all in the name of love all because we think we want it tolerance and stories and losses and glories all because we’ll be together for always all in the name of love all because we have to have it see through the smoke and look through the mirror I’m calling your name out I hope you can hear it one more night, one more day making everything okay, today All the noise subsides when you get to a place and you finally realize all it really takes is learning to empathize, hanging in as it shakes you hardest see through the smoke and look through the mirror I’m calling your name out I hope you can hear it one more night, one more day making everything okay, today
