Day N Nite 03:43
Verse 1: It’s been ninety days since I’ve seen the sun Sittin’ in the rain in the Seattle area Wonderin’ if my bones will ever be warm A thousand more bucks and I’m out the door Verse 2: I’ve been savin’ up just to get away Feelin’ like the ten years I been here I worn my stay Lookin’ around and can’t find a single friend Maybe it’s time that I start all over again Chorus 1: ‘Cause I know a place that I can go Where I can finally call my home It’s where the sun is always shining Day and night, day and night Verse 3: I hit a glass ceiling Ain’t nobody feelin’ The jams that I’m puttin’ out Zero people in the crowd I gotta get out Chorus 2: ‘Cause I know a place that I can go Where I can finally call my home It’s where the sun is always shining Day and night, day and night These people just don’t understand Exactly who the hell I am I’ve always been a star shining Day and night, day and night

Verse 1 From the moment she knew she had nothing to lose She escaped the tragedies of her family truths Called the black sheep as long as she can remember Born second to nine in the blood line Mr. John on the radio had it right Yeah someone’s gonna save, someone’s gonna save Her life tonight Chorus 1 Now she’s hitting the road with her guitar in tow Looking for god and all of the unknown Got a one way ticket headed straight for Seattle And if rock n’ roll don’t save her soul Uncle Sam is gonna put her on a payroll Well anything is better than the life she had in Chicago Trading time to find out why she born without wings to fly Verse 2 There’s freedom ahead, but she works instead Choosing jesus and the virtues of his daily Pleasing mama who forgot all about her So she looked for a man who could understand All the hard times of living without a helping hand Now she’s hoping for lovin’ but he’s broken Chorus 2 She’s still on the road with a child in tow Looking for god and all of the unknown Got a one way ticket headed straight for the chapel And if rock n’ roll won’t save her soul Three kids are gonna put you on a payroll Still anything is better than the life she had in Chicago Trading time to find out why she born without wings to fly Verse 3 She worked to the bone just to end up alone Yeah my daddy became another rolling stone Chose the bottle for survival or denial Well I see all the pain and I know it’s a shame Cause forgiveness is harder than they really say It’s the reason that I’m leaving this place Chorus 3 So I’m hitting the road with my guitar in tow Looking for god and all of the unknown Got a one way ticket headed straight for the Seattle And if rock n’ roll won’t save my soul These streets is gonna me on a payroll Yeah anything is better than the life mama had in Chicago Trading time to find out why, trading time to find out why I was born without wings to fly

Verse 1 Good love it isn’t easy to find You found me yet you’re so blind Love like left you feeling so unkind Betcha thought I wouldn’t mind Pre Chorus 1 Lately I’ve been finding I ain’t so bad I maybe the best thing you ever had Chorus 1 You’re gonna wish that you waited for me One day you will finally see I could be everything that you need You’re gonna wish that you waited for me Verse 2 You say it’s better off this way To be apart will make it all okay In your heart this is just another game I’m sorry but I don’t play that way Pre Chorus 2 Honey I’ve already let you go I just thought that maybe you should know You’re gonna wish Chorus 2 You’re gonna wish that you waited for me One day you will finally see I could be everything that you need You’re gonna wish that you waited for me Bridge You can go and find yourself a lover But they won’t hold ya like hold ya You know that isn’t any other Just like I told ya, yeah I told ya Love is a thing in this life that I think you just know I just came here to remind you that you let it go Chorus 3 You’re gonna wish that you waited for me Then one, then one day you might finally see I could be everything that you need You’re gonna wish that you waited for me

The Family 04:16
(Verse 1) You never call anymore But I wait by the telephone It’s like you don’t care What I’ve seen, where I’ve been and the mess that I’m in (Verse 2) The families gone cold They blame on us getting old But I don’t recognize you In this room that is empty and I know that you’re missing (Chorus) I’ll wait for it, pay for the mistakes that we made I’ll wait for it, pay for the day we’re okay (Verse 3) Blood is irrelevant When we love for the hell of it Right to the surface I know there’s a purpose for this But I just can’t see it (Chorus) I’ll wait for it, pay for the mistakes that we made I’ll wait for it, pay for the day we’re okay (Outro) At the heart of it all, the heart of it all (3x)

Carry On 05:00
Verse 1 Carry on I’ll be fine Move along cause it’s my time To rise from the ashes like a phoenix We all wanna know the greater meaning Chorus 1 Of life and love and the in between And are we just living in a dream The pain and all the suffering If I’m still breathing, am I still living If I’m still breathing, am I still living Verse 2 Sing along cause this my song When I’m feelin low I like to turn it on And feel all the feelings that I’m feeling To know that I’m not the only one fighting demons Chorus 2 In this life and love the in between And are we just living in a dream The pain and all the suffering If I’m still breathing, am I still living If I’m still breathing, am I still living Refrain Carry on I’ll be fine Would you move along cause it’s my time
