Track Name: Whiskey Kisses
Whiskey kisses on the run
Sipping on a contemplation
You're such a smooth talker when you're drunk
You're just a sliver of the sun

Whiskey kisses, gypsy heart
Sweet talkin' woman, work of art

Twisted lips at a joke
You laugh at all the wrong ones
You're such a sweet drug that's in my blood
My heart just can't get enough
I'm wishing simple things for love
Let's build something of our own
There's such a fine line between love and a lover
And I can't keep holding my tongue

She ain't my woman, no no no
Whiskey kisses at midnight, gypsy soul
With just the smooth static of her touch the only home that I know
All I know

Whiskey kisses, gypsy heart
Independent woman, work of art
Track Name: Mediocrity
I've been seein this world, I've been living in sin
I wouldn't have it any other way
Not everybody will take the time to find something better
There's warmer weather, there's less mediocrity
I've seen roads and rails, I float by my own sail
I'm gonna be a big star someday
And the women will swoon
Maybe someday soon I'll say, "This life's not for everyone."
It's not for everybody, it's not for most of us at all

Not everyone is destined to be someone, oh no
Not everyone can be someone

They say I'm livin' on the run
But I just haven't found a love to call my own
Maybe I'm not so special
Who do we think we are, just who the hell am I
Maybe I'm like everybody, or maybe I'm just nobody at all

Not everyone is destined to be someone, oh no
Not everyone can be someone

We watch this world fly by,
But does everybody come along for the ride?
I just keep on driving on
I've got nothing but free love, and time
Track Name: Dear Mama
Dear Mama, it's your baby boy,
I hope you hear these next few words.
Your life is hanging on a thread these days,
mine has suddenly been put on hold.
I just want to say that you were right when you
said that I would grow up someday.
But today I'm just a baby hanging on your arm,
dear Mama please don't go away.

She said "Son you're gonna grow up strong,
but you'll still feel weak on some days
You've just gotta find the strength to carry on
when there's heartache along the way.
Son you're gonna meet a girl,
and you'll start a family of your own.
Just remember what I taught you about love
and don't forget Son, to pass it on."

Dear Mama, please keep hanging on
I'm not ready for you to go away
You've just gotta find the strength to carry on
like you told me I'd do someday
'Cause when I stumble, I need you by my side
to tell me everything will be okay
Just know that if you leave this world,
you'll take a piece of mine away

She said "Son you're gonna grow up strong,
but you'll still feel weak on some days
You've just gotta find the strength to carry on
when there's heartache along the way.
Son you're gonna meet a girl,
and you'll start a family of your own.
Just remember what I taught you about love
and don't forget Son, to pass it on."

She said "I don't wanna hear a word,
just make sure your dad don't take this too hard.
Don't think of me as leavin', I'm just changing rooms
from this one into your heart."

He said "Mama I will grow up strong,
but I still feel weak today.
Someday I will find the strength to carry on,
but this heartache will always stay.
And someday when I fall in love,
I will do my best to keep my word.
I will love with all I have and I will carry you
until the day I leave this world. Until I leave this world."
Track Name: Stay So Long
I feel your touch on my skin
I try to breathe, but you're pulling air from lips
I'm talkin easy
and it feels so sweet to feel you push up against my hips
I've been trying, but I can't hide
that I've been wanting you here so long
Your sweet love on a Sunday afternoon,
and your touch feels like my favorite song

Oooh, I wanna stay so long,
I just love the way, that feelin' good never felt so wrong

Some kind of sensual heat that I can feel
When you whisper lovin' in my ear
It's a little funky how sweet this life can be
When I've got all that I need right here
I've been trying, but I can't hide that I've been wanting you here so long
I love the way that you taste when we're alone
and your touch feels like my favorite song

Oooh, I wanna stay so long,
I just love the way, that feelin' good never felt so wrong

I wanna stay so long

Oooh, I wanna stay so long,
I just love the way, that feelin' good never felt so wrong
Oooh, let's make our own song,
I just love the way, that feelin' good never felt so wrong
Track Name: Flesh and Bone
I've got the love,
I've got the fire running through my soul
And I've been walking through the thunder just to let you know
And it was cold, and everything came crashing down
Like an angry wave falling with an awful sound

And it was hungry, calling for flesh and bone
I tried reaching for the surface, but I just felt stone
And I know the only fault here is my own
They'll put me six feet down,
They'll whisper all across town
Wish a condemnation so profound
Like they've been looking for a soul to fill the vacant ground

I'll take this blood, I'll take this blood spilled from my veins
And I'll wash clean the stone where they wrote my name
And I'll be cold, I'll keep the names that have done me wrong
As I'm working for redemption from a makeshift home

And I'll be hungry, calling for flesh and bone
I've been searching for a purpose all alone
And you know the road I took was my own
I watched the green leaves turn brown
As I clawed at the cold hard ground
With a contemplation so profound
Like I was the only living soul around

I've got the love,
I've got the fire runnin through my soul
And I've been walkin through the thunder just to let you know
Track Name: Summer Soliloquoy
You've been coming down, I've been running
You've been coming down, for so long

I've clearing my head for a while,
I'd been losing my focus for a long, long time
I looked up the sky fell down without a sound
We'd fall, thought we were so strong, 'til we came crashing down

I sat down to write a song
I scratched your name, but now it's gone
We're all just on our own
We're on our own

And it was four years back to the canyon winds
I knew we'd never be the same, I would never be the same
It was the free-est time that we ever had
We were runnin with the wind, never settling
And we were never wrong
But somewhere the along the way, you were gone

I sat down to write your name
I wondered where it all changed
You drew a line in the sand
And now I'm leaving again
I thought you'd always be a friend
Now I'm leaving again
