Track Name: I Light Up
Here we go again
I’m sittin here and you’re there
Pretendin like we do
That there’s no feelins anywhere

Been chasin you for months now
And I’ve lost some dignity
But baby let’s be honest, it’s about time
You were chasin me

Cuz I light up when you walk in the room
Losin time, findin you
Now I know there’s nobody who
Even compares to you

I light up when you get next to me
Grab my hand - oh you set me free
Kiss me again - won’t you do it to me?
Oh, babe, you light me up


You light me up

Flash forward ‘bout a year now
And that’s cause for celebration
We’ve made it through a lot babe
And it’s still you that I’m cravin

Sure the beginnin’ was fun, tryin to
Win your heart over-
But there’s one thing that
I don’t ever see changin

I light up when you walk in the room
Losin time, findin you
Now I know there’s nobody who
Even compares to you

I light up when you get next to me
Grab my hand - oh you set me free
Kiss me again - won’t you do it to me?

I don’t think time is gonna change this
I don’t think days or weeks or months could erase it
Cuz I still light

Up when you walk in the room
Losin time, findin you
Now I know there’s nobody who
Even compares to you

I light up when you get next to me
Grab my hand - oh you set me free
Kiss me again - won’t you do it to me?
Oh you light me up
Track Name: 45 to Georgia
I’ve got 45 to Georgia
Tryin to stay awake while I’m drivin away
From my sweet love behind me
Beat the break of day

The world’s asleep
It’s tossin and a turnin
Turn it around, ‘fore you know it’s a brand new day
Dark side of the world - so thoughtful in your shadows
In the blink of an eye dreams are real and they light my way
In the blink of an eye dreams are real and they light my way

It’s 4 o’clock, or maybe 5 in Georgia
And the fields all around me are shrouded in a fadin’ mist
Is the earth below me just turnin’ out of habit?
Or do my wheels just push me in the search for bliss?
Oh it’s so perfect and painful to find somethin to miss

The world’s asleep
It’s tossin and a turnin
Turn it around, ‘fore you know it’s a brand new day
Dark side of the world - so thoughtful in your shadows
In the blink of an eye dreams are real and they light my way
In the blink of an eye dreams are real and they light my way

Light my way
Oh Lord please light my way
Won’t you please light my wayyyy
In the blink of an eye dreams are real and they light my way

The world’s asleep
It’s tossin and a turnin
Turn it around, ‘fore you know it’s a brand new day
Dark side of the world - so thoughtful in your shadows
In the blink of an eye dreams are real and they light my way
In the blink of an eye dreams are real and they light my way

I’ve got forty fiive to Georgia,
tryin to beat the break of day...
Track Name: The Storm
There I stood, the rain a comin down
Outside my baby’s door, imaginin that frown
Gotta make up, gotta end this pointless fight
Cuz we done forgot what it’s about, don’t want another lonely night
Cuz God knows you can’t

You can’t have the storm without the rain
Can’t fight my baby without that pain
Can’t cry that rain without a flood of sorrow over us, Lord -
Gimme no more tears
Lemme fight without the fears
Of weepin through my years, I just wanna
Love right - so
Put me on a boat with my baby
We’ll come out with the
sunlight, with the
sunlight

A while back, God spoke to some ol’ man, he said
Grab your wife and kids and 2 of each critter while you can
Gotta wait it out, I got some lessons to teach, this
Rain’s gonna clean up this whole world, get all you sinners fearin me
Cuz God knows you can’t

You can’t have the storm without the rain
Can’t fight my baby without that pain
Can’t cry that rain without a flood of sorrow over us, Lord -
Gimme no more tears
Lemme fight without the fears
Of weepin through my years, I just wanna
Love right - so
Put me on a boat with my baby
We’ll come out with the
sunlight, with the
sunlight
Track Name: Local Color
Diplomas in hand, faded Braves hat
A beat up black truck, and an icy twelve pack, my
Red dog runnin free, your brown eyes lookin back at me, floatin down the
Green River, thinkin of it makes me shiver

Take me back to the summer
Take me back to the start
Raise me up to our heaven
Where I fell for your heart, how I
Miss that youthful wonder, cuz your
Love pulled me under, when I
Think about that summer
When we found that local color

Tumble in the yellow sheets with black thunderclouds ahead, heat
Lightnin makes a show while we hold tight to every memory
Rain before the sunset makes the sky a rosy reverie and
Leaves a gilded edge on your pin lips inchin close to me

Take me back to the summer
Take me back to the start
Raise me up to our heaven
Miss that youthful wonder, cuz your
Love pulled me under, when I
Think about that summer
Oh

Lookin back on life there are shades of gray
But there with you every color stays
You’re the shade and the light all the same
But I’m growin blue thinkin of those days

Take me back to the summer
Take me back to the start
Raise me up to our heaven
Where I fell for your heart, how I
Miss that youthful wonder, cuz your
Love pulled me under, when I
Think about that summer
When we found that local
color...
Track Name: Just Fine
Some people say I’m proud
Stubborn, foolish, and often loud but it’s
justa cover-up - - it’s
Easier than to butter you up - here’s the
truth - I wanna love on you, get to
Huggin and a kissin and a holdin you but I’m
Far too battered and bruised
to
Risk fallin again
Just to get
Dropped in the
End

I’m fallin and flyin
Trippin and runnin, I’m
Drunk and I’m sober
I’m startin what’s over
Drownin while I’m up for air
Worryin without a care
I’m found, but now I’m wonderin where - you’re
too late, too soon, I’m too happy, too blue
Nice to know ya
But I’m just fine on my own

I might have a confession to make - this
whole charade’s gettin harder to fake,
I only wish that I could make you
Ugly and stinky and stupid to boot - but I
won’t - and what’s worse I
can’t count as high as the
number of times I’ve
Caught the thought of you fresh on my mind I’m

I’m fallin and flyin
Trippin and runnin, I’m
Drunk and I’m sober
I’m startin what’s over
Drownin while I’m up for air
Worryin without a care
I’m found, but now I’m wonderin where - you’re
too late, too soon, I’m too happy, too blue
Nice to know ya
But I’m just fine on my own

Nice to know you but I’m just fine on my own
Track Name: How Do People Know?
Today I thought about how much I love you
Today I missed havin your smile around
Today I thought about how much I need you to
Share with me the ups, and hold me in the downs

So why can’t we
Be sure you see?
Here’s you, here’s me, here’s all my bets
on one life’s love

So how do people know
When all the gettin’s good
And Cupid’s shot his bow
For the last time - how do you
know?

Oh dear forgive my flaws, I’m only human
Surefooted I am not, and often full of doubt
Oh please let me assure you, my heart is golden
But my mind is silver, tarnished in and out

So why can’t we
Be sure you see?
Here’s you, here’s me, here’s all my bets
on one life’s love

So how do people know
When all the gettin’s good
And Cupid’s shot his bow
For the last time - how do you

know?

How do people

know
When all the gettin’s good
And Cupid’s shot his bow
For the last time -

So why can’t I
Just roll the die, and let the
numbers lie, I’ve placed my bets
on one life’s love

So how do people know
When all the gettin’s good
And Cupid’s shot his bow
For the last time - how do you
know?
