Track Name: Wish You Well
I think that I
I'm at the rise after the fall
I come alive
doesn't mean I don't think about those days
Sometimes I still dream of that place

I find a light
When the rain is coming down
I'll be alright
Doesn't mean I don't miss you miss you
I can look in the rear view now and smile

Oh, never thought it would be this hard to let you go
Now I see it from the outside
Something's you can't fight
Though it hurts like hell
I wish you well

Late at night
Standing in a crowded room
I see your eyes
It's not every face I'm walking past
I hear your favorite song and it makes me laugh

When I'm alone and there's no one around
I'm back-and-forth because part of me still wants to kiss you
But I can look in the rearview now and smile

Oh, never thought it would be this hard to let you go
Now I see it from the outside
Something's you can't fight
Though it hurts like hell
I wish you well
Oh, just one little thing that I gotta let you know
I still keep you on the inside
Some things you can't hide
Though it hurts like hell
I wish You Well

You had the very best part of me
Don't think I've ever fallen faster
Track Name: Body and Soul
In the middle of the rhythm of the night
She comes to me
Last two standing under last call lights
Where I want to be
Still buzzing from the way she looks at me
Keep running just to keep her company
She wants a ride and I wanna fly
She's like an angel

Oh, oh, oh
Yeah that girl she got rock and roll
Reggae country down in her bones
She got body and soul
Come on hey, hey, hey
I want more of her every day
Gimme a beat that I can't control
She got body and soul
He's my diamond wrapped up in gold
She got body and soul

Too close ain't ever too close
When she's holding on
And too loud ain't ever too loud
When she's singing along
Still buzzing from the way I look at her I'll give her all the love that she deserves She wants a ride and I want to fly
She's like an angel

I need a love that won't hold back
She gives me that
I need a love that'll keep me on track
She gives me that
I need a love that's gonna last
She's all of that
Track Name: Sleeping Giant
Damn this face I see in the glass in front of me
It's my dark side I try to hide looking back at me
He laughs at me
And he smiles like the devil
Swears like a sailor
Lights up another cigarette
Says that he owns me
Thinks that he knows me
But one thing he don't know just yet

I'm a sleeping giant
I am a force of nature
I'm gonna come back to life now
Sooner or later
I hit harder than a hurricane
You got yourself to blame
If you wake this sleeping giant
I dare you to wake me up

Tell me why you always gotta bring me down
Left a trail of broken hearts here in the ground, but that's over now
Could it be just another
Ghost in the cupboard
Next to a box of skeletons
Tear in an ocean
Drop in the bucket
Damned if I let you win again

If I were you I would run like hell
If I were me I'd find myself
Track Name: Light It Up and Let It Burn
I said I'm all messed up and it's tough
Keeping it together when I'm already done
It's harder to keep a fake smile on
Nothing more than a shoulder to cry on
I said I'm all messed up and it's tough
You're playing with fire
Strike a match, light It up

If you're going to burn this love to the ground
Love to the ground
Love into the ground
If you're going to burn this love to the ground
There's no time better than now
Oooo
Light it up and let it burn down
Oooo
Light it up and let it burn

I understand we did all that we can
Keeping it together but I'm still a broken man
Now every time I walk into the bedroom
It's like lying with a girl that I once knew
I said I all messed up and it's tough
Still stuck staring down the barrel of a gun

All the better days are gone
Yeah they're long, long gone
Track Name: Chemicals
Turn up the static
Just to tune you out
The chemicals
They don't help me now
I overdose
Still not over you
All my clothes
Smell of your perfume

Seven months
Still your not around
I see your face
And what you're doing now
You plagiarize
Our love with someone new
Turning pages
Tracing every move

You're my habit
Burning with regret
I wanna be past it
But I can't forget

Paint the town
Pretend it's black-and-white
Fall in love
Only for one night
She fills the space
Like a bad tattoo
In the bed we made
While I dream of you

I'm an addict
Coming back again
I want to be passed it
But I can't forget
I wish we lasted
Or we'd never met
I want to be passed it
But I can't forget

How you held onto me under the moonlight
How your skin on my skin never felt so right
Though I know someday I'll get over it
But I can't forget
Track Name: At the End of the Day
Work boots by the door
Toys scattered across the floor
In a pile of broken dreams out in the mailbox
Not quite what I had planned
When I was a younger man
But some things in life you don't understand

'Til you're watching an angel sleep sound in your bed
Holding that miracle so innocent
And you realize you wouldn't have it any other way
At the end of the day

Birthday cakes in June
Sommers always came too soon
I miss those hurried morning rides to school
Now I must admit
Wish she was still at home with us again
How time flies it sure don't make no sense

'Til you're watching that first dance she looks in his eyes
The same way her mama still looks in mine
And you realize you wouldn't have it any other way
At the end of the day

Family by my side
Their tears will someday dry
If now is my time it's gonna be alright

Well, I wouldn't have had any other way
At the end of the day
Track Name: Eyes Wide
You're not so far away
You'll never be the same as another
So find your better place
Life's a game of Chase and color
Learn from your mistakes
Don't care how long it takes to uncover
The scars will fade away
The stars of the light the way

You don't have to be scared no more you can always come back home
Oh
You don't have to be on your own you can always come back home
Follow your heart
It'll never lead you wrong
You don't have to be scared no more you can always come back home

What you got to lose
Time is on your side and I believe
You're gonna be the living prof
That hope survives and dreams come true

With your heart wide open
With your head open
