Track Name: Fearless
Fearless

I put my life on the line
I fight with Mamba Snakes
I play big card games
I gamble big high stakes
But there’s something ‘bout you baby that scares me
And I’m Fearless

I walk down long dark streets
Where those shadows don’t fall
I have lived through the Blues
With another mule in y stall
There’s just something ‘bout you baby that scares me
And I’m Fearless

I can stare down a man that’s twice my size
But I feel the fear of God when I look in your eyes
I put the switch in the blade that will cut you deep
But you dull every knife I put in my sheath

That’s why I’m scared of you baby, I’m scared of you baby
I’m afraid of you baby
I can stare down the barrel of a loaded gun
But I never knew fear till I knew you’re the one
That’s why I’m scared of you baby and I’m Fearless
Track Name: The Closer I Get
The Closer I Get

When I wake up in the morning
This old engine needs a little more priming
Thank it used to need
I guess it’s about time I used my Guarantee
Forty year tune-up if you please

When I’m runnin’ down the highway
Get a little less mileage on my tank of gas
When I break down on the side of the road
A little less life’s luggage
Is a lot lighter load

Chorus
I still think about tomorrow
and I remember yesterday
I’m a little confused
But I think that’s because
The Older I get the faster I was

Like a fool I chased everything that moved
Got used to the doghouse and a cold bowl of food
If I’d been a little smarter I’d have climbed
every single tree
Just to find the little bird that was tellin on me

I think I fell down when I was supposed to grow up
A little hide and seek and I found the right stuff
I don’t think I’m ever gonna miss that game
You can never go back it wouldn’t be the same

I still think about tomorrow
And I remember yesterday
I’m a little confused

But I think that’s because
The older i get the faster I am
When I wake up in the morning
This old engine needs a little more priming
Than it used to need
I guess it’s about time I use my warranty
Forty year Tune-up if you please
Track Name: Beautiful Thing About Love
Beautiful Thing About Love

If you’ve got it
You’re gonna’ know it
Gonna’ Squeeze it real tight
I hope you don’t blow it
Like the angels kissing you from above
That’s the beautiful thing about Love

They say love is a giving thing
How much can you take?
If you’re taking out more than you’re puttin’in
That’s a felling that you can’t shake
I’ve found from my experience
That it takes lots of time and patience
Givin’ up and givin’ in
How would you know if you were ever willin’

Like my daddy told me
A long long time ago
Son if you don’t listen you better be believing
you’ll turn around and she’ll be leavin’
And that’s a dollar that you can bet on
Can’t change her mind when she’s got it set on
Givin’ up and givin’ in
Just when she thought that she was winnin’

Now I’ve laid it out on the table
Set your place and do yourself a favor
We’ve got tho feed your hearts desire
But your soul is her Love’s true desire
Track Name: Little Too Much
Little Too Much

Learned a whole lot
When I was growin’ up
That it really don’t matter
Unless you think too much
You always want to move
You got nowhere to go
You want to run fast
Maybe you ought to move slow

Maybe I think about it a little too much
Maybe I talk about it a little too much
Maybe I drink just a little too much
I think about it, a little too much

Saw an old friend just the other day
Haven’t seen them for a while
Didn’t know what to say
So I went right home and pulled out my photographs
Saw a lot of tears and I saw a lot of laughs

Now I’m real happy
With this girl that’s mine
I have stumbled and fallen’
But I held on to the line
That’s the rope of truth
That’s a string so fine
But you can pull a lot of weight
If you got the right twine
Track Name: Watch It
Watch It

Walking down the street just the other day
On the corner stood my baby
Talking to a man I had never seen
Just about drove me crazy
I started thinkin’ bout’ things that I’ve done wrong
Like it might have been better if I’d have come home
Instead of hangin’ out with run arounds all night long
Now I’m wonderin’ if I still have a home

You better Watch It - Watch It
Every little thing you do
You better Watch It - Watch It
It might just happen to you

Ring ring goes the telephone
Who in the hell was that, that answered?
I thought it be a sweet little “Hello Babe”
Boy was I disappointed
Cause’ it sounded like the end of my little world
Some big bad wolf had stole my girl
If I hadn’t been Red Ridin” all night long
She wouldn’t have been afraid when I cam home

If there’s a reason for what I’ve been sayin’
Let me tell you what I’ve been thinkin’
There’s a whole lot more than hangin’ around
Stayin’ out all night and drinkin’
Cause’ when you get home you might
Come home alone
Track Name: A Man Like That
A Man Like That

Yes I’m waiting for you now
Guess that’s the reason I’m still sitting here
Wondering how
You got away again
I’m going crazy thinking
What you been doing?
Who you been Seeing?
Have you been needing me?

It’s gonna’ be the last time
That I act like that
Deep inside I know if I don’t
You won’t leave me flat
I don’t want to be a man like that

It started back a while ago
I couldn’t tell you if the wind was even blowing
My direction was unknown
I was out of shape
My form was fleeting
I wasn’t seeing that you were needing me

That’s why it’s gonna’ be the last time
That I act like that
Deep inside I know if I don’t
You won’t leave me flat

Guess I’ll really have to see it through
This little picture called me and you
But it’s so hard when you can’t find the lights
And it’s so dark
Track Name: Through to You (The Want Song)
Through to You (The Want Song)

I want out of this revolving door
I want less cause I’ve had so much more
I want to get up on the right side of bed
Some time before I’m dead

I want eggs and the basket too
Bring the chicken cause’ we’ll need him too
I want to see the proverbial light
I wish I may I might

A piece of pie that I can eat too
Something to borrow when I’m feeling Blue
I’d sell this place, and buy the farm
If I could just get through to you

I want to walk down a dead end street
So I can warn everybody that I happen to meet
And when I’m standing at the end fo the line
They’ll know just where I’m at

I want to be taller than the average bug
Don’t need no carpet to make me feel snug
know the difference in friend or foe
I’d like to find out before I go

A piece of pie that I can eat too
Something to borrow when I’m feeling Blue
I’d sell this place, and buy the farm
If I could just get through to you

I want to know heaven is not always blue
And there’s nothing wrong with thinking the way I do
If you got to get up early to be something that flies
I hope I do before I die
Track Name: Little Town Girl
Little Town Girl

When you see her
She’ll know everything
You’ve ever thought about her
And you’ll wonder how
You ever lived without her
She’s a little town girl

She was born there
By a mother and father
Who were raised there
And she dreamed about moving
Until her tears ran dry
She’s a little town girl
Wondering why
She might get away
If she had half a mind
If you’re half way listening
You’ll get left behind
She’s a little town girl
In this big old world

All the fingers were missing
On her hand me down gloves
So it got hard to count
All her little town loves
There’s not much to do
When the sun goes down
All of a sudden

Your Class is the best
You’re having reunions
Remembering things that you missed
Before you know it, you’re settling down
You discover the nature and the beauty of life
Now that little town girl is somebody’s wife

When those small towns collapse
And the drive-ins close down
Event the standard of living
Is trying to leave town
There’s one thing I’m betting
Certain for sure
Here will always be
