Track Name: If It's Got Wheels
Never felt at home in my hometown
Never felt right putting my roots down
I feel like I’ve been living six feet down
No I can’t seem to win for losing
I only feel alive when I’m moving
Let the highway catch the wind and
carry me on to where I’ve never been

If it’s got wheels
If it’s got a pedal I can punch with the four on the floor
Made of American steel
Burning those tires down the road from here to the coast
Got the radio on and you’re singing along
This is how freedom feels
If it’s got wheels I’m gone

It all starts when you turn 16
You’re making memories in that back seat
With that engine running you’re running free
Now the years go by and the miles roll on
Here I am still chasing that dawn
Still chasing that feeling and chasing tomorrow till I find where I belong

Cause if it’s got wheels
If it’s got a pedal I can punch with the four on the floor
Made of American steel
Burning those tires down the road from here to the coast
Got the radio on and you’re singing along
This is how freedom feels
If it’s got wheels baby I’m gone

If it’s got wheels
If it’s got a pedal I can punch with the four on the floor
Made of American steel
Burning those tires down the road from here to the coast
Got the radio on and you’re singing along
This is how freedom feels
If it’s got wheels baby I’m gone
Track Name: Go On and Leave Me
So you’re strong enough to make it on your own
You say you’ll make up your mind you think you might be moving on
Well you can stay awhile or you can go

Go on and leave me cause I didn’t need you
And I don’t need this so go on

Don’t come running back when you see where you went wrong
You say you miss all our laughs and you hate waking up alone
Don’t say you miss our love cause it’s dead and gone

So go on and leave me cause I didn’t need you
And I don’t need this so go on

Go on and leave me
Go on and leave me
So go on and leave me
Said a “go on”, said a “go on”, said a “go on”, said a “go on”, said a “go on” yeah

Cause I didn’t need you
And I don’t need this so go on
Go on and leave me cause I didn’t need you
And I don’t need this so go on
Track Name: Don't Want To Slow It Down
They say we got plenty, plenty of time but I don’t want to slow it down
I’ll be ok with whatever you say but I don’t want to slow it down

We’re cruising in style down a miracle mile and I don’t want to slow it down
You’ve got your hand on my heart and my head’s in the clouds
And I don’t want to slow it down

We could turn this around and not cross the line
We could put on the brakes if you want
But I can tell by your smile you’ve got other things on your mind
And that you don’t want to slow it down

We’re here at your door
We’ve been here before and I don’t want to slow it down
What’s that I hear you whispering in my ear
That you don’t want to slow this down

We could turn this around and not cross the line
We could put on the brakes if you want
But I can tell by your smile you’ve got other things on your mind
And that you don’t want to slow it down
That you don’t want to slow it down

We could turn this around and not cross the line
We could put on the brakes if you want
But I can tell by your smile you’ve got other things on your mind
And that you don’t want to slow it down

We could turn this around and not cross the line
We could put on the brakes if you want but I can tell by your smile you’ve Got other things on your mind and that you don’t want to slow it down
That you don’t want to slow it down
Track Name: Messy Love
Sometimes I have too much
Some nights I can’t get enough of you and your familiar touch
It just feels so right on me

I’ve often looked for something new
And you’ve thought of leaving too
But straying far we never do ‘cause we know where we belong

And ours is a messy love of blunder and desire
The kind where you pray for hope and the kind you hope to find
We try to fix the mess we made
It’s fixed with messy love

Love is a learning game and with time the lessons change
But it’s heart remains the same
Embrace your “other one”

You and I we’ve had hard times and we’ve had our sweet, sweet highs
Though we’re not the perfect kind our love burns a sweet perfume

Ours is a messy love of blunder and desire
The kind where you pray for hope and the kind you hope to find
Yeah we try to fix the mess we made it’s fixed with messy…

Yeah we try to fix the mess we made it’s fixed with messy love
Yeah we try to fix the mess we made it’s fixed with messy love
Track Name: These Things Will Drag You Down
You only live once so don’t waste your time standing in line
Waiting for a sign to move your legs - to walk that mile
Forget this town you’ve been here far too long

These things will drag you down
These things will drag you down
These things will drag you down

You only live once so don’t waste your love giving to those who won’t grasp its worth
Yeah she’ll give you directions and he will make demands
So much noise but the only voice you need to hear is your own

These things will drag you down
These things will drag you down
These things will drag you down
Track Name: True Love
True love why are you teasing me
why won't you come around and get to pleasing me
I want your tender kiss and your open arms
Why won’t you start easing my lonely heart?

She’s way out west working in the bars making her pay down on the boulevard
She’s got her job and some better friends
And some good times just no one to share them with

True love why are you teasing me
why won't you come around and get to pleasing me
I want your tender kiss and your open arms
Why won’t you start easing my lonely heart?

He’s deep down south working in the bars making his pay with an old guitar
The drums hit “two” and the band begins
and the crowd sings along when the chorus kicks in

True love why are you teasing me
why won't you come around and get to pleasing me
I want your tender kiss and your open arms
Why won’t you start easing my lonely heart?

If you know it won’t you sing along
‘Cause nobody wants to be alone

True love why are you teasing me
why won't you come around and get to pleasing me
I want your tender kiss and your open arms
Why won’t you start easing my lonely heart?
Track Name: Never Like This Before
I’ve been used and abused for so long
Never knowing just what I did wrong
I’ve been held by some sweet loving arms
But never like this before

I’ve been someone to settle for less
Never knowing no better I guess
I have found other places for my heart to rest
But never like this before

Never like this before
Never like this before
Captured by a kiss
Never, never like this have I been so hungry, so hungry for more

I have wandered around to excess
Leaving nothing to my name but a mess
And yes there have been times when I’ve felt so blessed
But never like this before
Never like this before
Track Name: Can't Take Another Blow
Can you feel the thunder under, under my skin
If I break through these walls I wonder what it’s gonna feel like to let you in
I want to run down this road together and just maybe turn into forever

Don’t you want to go, go, go down this road with me
And don’t you want to know, know, know how good this love could be
Let’s paint ourselves into a work of art
Not shoot it down before it even starts
‘Cause I can’t take another blow to my heart

I could lose all my addictions if that’s the way it had to be
And I could stand to lose everything but I couldn’t take
I couldn’t take you leaving me

Let’s give this thing a shot
C’mon baby lay it all on the line
Give it what we got

Don’t you want to go, go, go down this road with me
And don’t you want to know, know, know how good this love could be
Let’s paint ourselves into a work of art
Not shoot it down before it even starts
‘Cause I can’t take another blow to my heart

Don’t you want to go, go, go down this road with me
And don’t you want to know, know, know how good this love could be
Let’s paint ourselves into a work of art
Not shoot it down before it even starts
‘Cause I can’t take another blow
I can’t take another blow
I can’t take another blow to my heart
Can’t take another blow
Track Name: In This Together (featuring Caitlin Evanson)
From first glance my heart was taken
Romance we started making
We fell in love so fast no turning back

Set out on a life together the unknown is ours
We’re staying up all night laying under the starry lights

Into the wild we ran
Hearts racing we joined hands
Singing ooh… yeah

Who knows how this all will turn out
Will we shine or will we burn out
Whatever will be I know it’ll be you and me in this together

So the story builds and tapers through the years and scenes fast forward
We’ve been through ups and downs struggles with faith and doubt
But for richer and for poorer we’ve held together in each others’ arms
These trials make us strong

Facing the wild we stand onward hand in hand
Singing ooh…

Who knows how this all will turn out
Will we shine or will we burn out
Whatever will be I know it’ll be you and me in this together

What magic leads us on and keeps us falling back in love?

Who knows how this all will turn out
Will we shine or will we burn out
Whatever will be I know it’ll be you and me in this together
