Track Name: The Wheel
YOU COME INTO THE WORLD KICKING AND SCREAMING
THE CLOCK STARTS TICKING WITH THE BREATH YOU’RE BREATHING
TINY HANDS, TINY FEET, AND ALL YOU DO IS EAT AND SLEEP
THEN YOU BLINK YOUR EYES AND YOU’RE CRAWLIN’ CROSS THE FLOOR
AND YOU BLINK EM AGAIN AND YOU’RE RUNNING OUT THE DOOR
FOR A TIRE SWING, THEN A SCHOOLBUS, THEN A SECOND HAND CHEVY AND YOU’RE KICKIN’ UP DUST…IT HAPPENS SO FAST, JUST LIKE THAT

CHORUS:
OH THE WHEEL KEEPS TURNING, AND THE FLAME KEEPS BURNING
AND THE HUNGER IN THE HEART AND THE SPIRIT IN THE SOUL KEEPS YEARNING, AND THE WHEEL KEEPS TURNING

YOU FALL FOR LOVE ON A PRAYER AND A WING AND
YOUR HEART GETS BROKEN AND YOU FEEL THAT STING
AND YOU FALL AGAIN AND IT SURE FEELS RIGHT
AND HALF A SECOND LATER THEY’RE THROWING RICE
THEN YOU’RE BACK TO WORK AND THE HONEYMOON’S DONE
BOY TIME FLIES WHEN YOU’RE HAVING FUN
YOU BUY A LITTLE HOUSE WITH A LEAKY ROOF
THEN YOU’RE PAINTIN’ THAT NURSERY BABY BLUE
THE FIRST TIME YOU HOLD HIM, IT STARTS ALL OVER

REPEAT CHORUS

THE SUN COMES UP AND THE MOON GOES DOWN
THE ROCK IN THE SKY SPINS ROUND AND ROUND
IT’S ONE MORE DAY HERE ON THE GROUND AS THE STARS ROLL BY
YOU LIVE AND LEARN BREAK AND BEND
SAY A LITTLE PRAYER WHEN THE DAYLIGHT ENDS
WAKE IN THE MORNING DO IT ALL AGAIN IT’S A CRAZY RIDE

REPEAT CHORUS

YOU COME INTO THE WORLD KICKIN’ AND SCREAMING
AND THE WHEEL KEEPS TURNING
Track Name: Long Gone Train
WELL I WOKE UP WRAPPED UP
TIGHT IN YOU BABY LIKE A BLANKET IN THE NIGHT
BUT YOU’RE NOT HERE
IT’S JUST A LITTLE SOUVENIR
OF THE GOOD DAYS, WILD DAYS
THE HEARTACHE IS OVER AND THE TEARS HAVE ALL BEEN CRIED
BUT YOU’RE STILL HERE
A LITTLE WHISPER IN MY EAR

CHORUS:
IT’S JUST THE RIPPLES IN THE WATER WHEN THE STONE’S GONE DOWN
JUST THE LINGER OF AN ECHO WHEN THE SOUND’S DIED OUT
THE ROLLIN’ OF A RIVER AFTER A HARD SUMMER RAIN
IT’S JUST THE LAST BOXCAR OF A LONG GONE TRAIN

IT TOOK A LONG TIME BUT I
PUT YOU BEHIND ME AND I SET THAT BRIDGE IN FLAMES
WE SAID GOODBYE
BUT I GUESS THE EMBERS NEVER DIE
AND NOW MY LIFE’S BACK ON TRACK
JUST LIKE IT SHOULD BE AND I’VE FOUND SOME PEACE AGAIN
BUT STILL SOMETIMES
I CATCH YOU RUNNING THROUGH MY MIND

REPEAT CHORUS

CHORUS:
IT’S JUST THE RIPPLES IN THE WATER WHEN THE STONE’S GONE DOWN
JUST THE LINGER OF AN ECHO WHEN THE SOUND’S DIED OUT
THE ROLLIN’ OF A RIVER AFTER A HARD SUMMER RAIN
IT’S JUST THE RUMBLING OF THE THUNDER WHEN THE LIGHTNING’S DONE
THE CLOUD OF DUST AND GRAVEL WHEN THE WHEELS HAVE SPUN
THE RED ON THE HORIZON AFTER THE SUN’S GONE AWAY
IT’S JUST THE LAST BOXCAR
THE LAST BOXCAR
IT’S JUST THE LAST BOXCAR OF A LONG GONE TRAIN
Track Name: Sacred
YOU FEED MY HUNGER, HEAL MY PAIN
LIKE THE FIELDS OF SUMMER NEED THE RAIN
I FEEL YOUR KISSES ON MY SKIN
I SOAK YOU UP I DRINK YOU IN
NOW ALL THAT DARKNESS IN THE PAST
IS COLORED SUNLIGHT THROUGH STAINED GLASS
TONIGHT IT’S ONLY YOU AND ME
EXACTLY WHERE WE’RE MEANT TO BE

CHORUS:
‘CAUSE HEAVEN ABOVE IS SHINING DOWN
WE TAKE EVERY STEP ON HALLOWED GROUND
SOMEONE IS HEARING EVERY PRAYER WE’RE PRAYING
THIS IS NO ORDINARY LOVE
ANGELS ARE WATCHING OVER US
NOTHING ON EARTH IS STRONG ENOUGH TO SHAKE IT
IT’S SACRED

I LIE AWAKE AND WATCH YOU SLEEP
LISTEN TO YOUR HEART BEAT NEXT TO ME
AND I’M SO AMAZED I’M SO ALIVE
I’M SO IN LOVE SO SATISFIED

CHORUS

THIS IS NO ORDINARY LOVE, ANGELS ARE WATCHING OVER US
NOTHING ON EARTH IS STRONG ENOUGH TO SHAKE IT, IT’S SACRED

CHORUS
Track Name: When You Can Fly
HERE I AM OUT ON THE EDGE
OUT AS FAR AS I CAN GET AGAIN
TAKING ONE MORE LEAP OF FAITH
THROWING ALL MY CAUTION TO THE WIND…BUT

CHORUS:
WHY WALK WHEN YOU CAN FLY
OH I’D RATHER JUMP, I’D RATHER FALL
I’D RATHER TRUST, I’D RATHER TRY
WHY CRAWL WHEN YOU CAN CLIMB
EVEN IF YOU’RE GONNA HURT, EVEN IF YOU’RE GONNA CRY
WHY WALK WHEN YOU CAN FLY

MAYBE I’D BE BETTER OFF
WITH A FEW LESS TEARS, A FEW LESS SCARS
BUT I’D NEVER KNOW HOW FLYING FEELS
NEVER BE HERE, NEVER COME THIS FAR…SO

CHORUS

I’M A BELIEVER
I’M A SURVIVOR
LIVING ON DREAMS AND
DANCING WITH FIRE
GONNA FIGHT HARDER
GONNA REACH HIGHER
KEEP ON FLYING, KEEP ON FLYING…SO


CHORUS
Track Name: I Can't
I’VE GOT THE THUNDER IN MY BONES, I’VE GOT THE TROUBLE IN MY SOUL
DROWNING IN TEARS MY EYES WERE TOO PROUD TO CRY
I HEAR YOU KNOCKIN’ AT MY DOOR, BUT I CAN’T OPEN IT NO MORE
‘CAUSE THIS HEART’S HALF FULL OF RAIN AND RISIN’ HIGH
SOMETIMES ALL THAT YOU CAN DO IS JUST SURVIVE

CHORUS:
I CAN’T ROW YOU ACROSS RIGHT NOW
I CAN’T ROW YOU ACROSS RIGHT NOW
I’M TOO BUSY BUILDING A BRIDGE
I CAN’T THROW YOU A LINE RIGHT NOW
I CAN’T THROW YOU A LINE RIGHT NOW
I’M TOO BUSY TRYIN’ TO LIVE

I’VE BEEN A FOOL FOR HOLDING ON, I’VE BEEN A FOOL FOR BEING STRONG
I’VE BEEN A FOOL FOR LOVE AND I’LL BE A FOOL AGAIN
AS SOON AS THE RAIN STOPS POURING DOWN, AS SOON AS I FIND SOME HIGHER GROUND
I’LL BE GOOD AS NEW BUT I CAN’T TELL YOU WHEN
SO JUST KEEP ON STRIKING MATCHES UNTIL THEN…’CAUSE

CHORUS:
I CAN’T BURN YOU A FLAME RIGHT NOW
I CAN’T BURN YOU A FLAME RIGHT NOW
I’M TOO BUSY SEEING THE LIGHT
I CAN’T LIFT YOU UP RIGHT NOW
I CAN’T LIFT YOU UP RIGHT NOW
I’M TOO BUSY TRYIN’ TO FLY

BRIDGE:
LET GO THE ANCHOR LET GO THE CHAIN
DON’T REACH FOR ME AND DON’T CALL MY NAME
SHAKE OFF THE PAST AND BABY JUST SWIM FOR THE SHORE
BLOW ME A KISS AND HOPE FOR THE BEST
WISH WHAT YOU WILL, TAKE WHAT YOU GET
DO WHAT YOU WANT BUT I CAN’T SAVE YOU NO MORE

I GOT THE THUNDER IN MY BONES, I GOT THE TROUBLE IN MY SOUL
DROWNIN’ IN TEARS MY EYES WERE TOO PROUD TO CRY
AND I CAN’T WHISPER A PRAYER RIGHT NOW
I CAN’T WHISPER A PRAYER RIGHT NOW
I’M TOO BUSY BABY, SAYIN’ GOODBYE

REPEAT BRIDGE
Track Name: Don't Leave The Leavin' (duet with Jason Blaine)
DON’T WAKE UP TOMORROW MORNING
ON THE OTHER SIDE OF TOWN
AND LET YOURSELF DIAL MY NUMBER
JUST TO SEE IF I’M AROUND
DON’T LET ME HEAR YOUR VOICE CRACK
DON’T ASK IF I’M ALRIGHT
DON’T SAY MAYBE WE SHOULD GIVE IT ONE MORE CHANCE
‘CAUSE YOU KNOW I JUST MIGHT, NO

CHORUS:
DON’T LEAVE THE LEAVING UP TO ME
‘CAUSE I DON’T THINK I’M STRONG ENOUGH
I STILL LOVE YOU TOO MUCH, STILL LOVE YOU MUCH
JUST GO, IF YOU’RE GONNA SET ME FREE
IF YOU CARE AT ALL THEN BABY PLEASE
DON’T LEAVE THE LEAVING UP TO ME

IF YOU SEE ME ON THE SIDEWALK
JUST LET ME PASS ON BY
I DON’T WANNA BE BLINDSIDED
BY THAT OLD FAMILIAR SMILE
DON’T CALL MY NAME OUT LOUD
WALK UP AND SAY HELLO
AND DON’T YOU DARE SAY IT WAS A BIG MISTAKE
TO EVER LET ME GO, NO

CHORUS:
DON’T LEAVE THE LEAVING UP TO ME
‘CAUSE I DON’T THINK I’M STRONG ENOUGH
I STILL LOVE YOU TOO MUCH, STILL LOVE YOU MUCH
JUST GO, IF YOU’RE GONNA SET ME FREE
IF YOU CARE AT ALL THEN BABY PLEASE
DON’T LEAVE THE LEAVING UP TO ME, YEAH

DON’T TELL ME THAT YOU’RE SORRY
DON’T SAY ANOTHER WORD
DON’T SWEAR THE LAST THING YOU WANTED
WAS TO EVER SEE ME HURT…NO, NO

CHORUS
Track Name: Kiss Me
WE BEEN CIRCLING ROUND WAY TOO LONG
WITH NO ONE IN THE DRIVER’S SEAT
I’M TIRED OF HOLDING MY TONGUE HOLDIN’ MY BREATH
BABY ARE YOU GONNA TAKE THAT WHEEL
AH AH AH AH, AH AH AH AH
I CAN’T DENY IT, I CAN’T ESCAPE IT
AH AH AH AH, AH AH AH AH
I’M GONNA COME RIGHT OUT AND SAY IT

CHORUS:
K-K-K-KISS ME, JUST DO IT BABY
DON’T KEEP ME WAITING, DON’T DRIVE ME CRAZY
YOU K-K-KEEP ME, ANTICIPATING
I CAN HARDLY BREATHE
K-K-K, AH KISS ME

I’M TANGLED UP TIGHT, LOOKIN’ IN YOUR EYES
BABE YOU KNOW IT’S ALL YOUR FAULT
THIS SLIPPERY SLOPE, FUMBLIN’ HEART
STUMBLIN’ TUMBLIN’ DOWNWARD FALL, OH
AH AH AH AH, AH AH AH AH
IT’S AN ADDICTION, A SWEET DISTRACTION
AH AH AH AH, AH AH AH AH
COME ON AND START THIS CHAIN REACTION

CHORUS

GO TOO FAR, GO TOO FAST, TAKE A RISK, TAKE A CHANCE
I DARE YOU I DARE YOU
WHAT HAVE YOU GOT TO LOSE, I KNOW YOU FEEL IT TOO
I SWEAR YOU DO,
I KNOW YOU DO, WHY DON’T YOU JUST

CHORUS
K-K-K-KISS ME, JUST DO IT BABY
DON’T KEEP ME WAITING, DON’T DRIVE ME CRAZY
YOU K-K-KEEP ME, ANTICIPATING
I CAN HARDLY BREATHE
K-K-K, AH KISS ME
Track Name: This Old Halo
YOU USED TO CALL ME HEAVEN SENT
NOW I’M HEARTBROKE AND I’M HELL BENT
‘CAUSE EVER SINCE YOU DID ME WRONG
THIS OLD HALO WON’T STAY ON

I SOLD YOUR CAR, AND PAWNED THAT DIAMOND RING
BOUGHT ME SOME SHOES MADE FOR DANCING IN
THE GIRL I USED TO BE IS GONE
THIS OLD HALO WON’T STAY ON

CHORUS:
I GOT AN ANGEL ON MY LEFT SIDE
I GOT A DEVIL ON MY RIGHT
AND WHY’S THAT APPLE TASTE SO SWEET
IF YOU CAN’T TAKE A BITE
WELL I’VE GOT BETTER THINGS TO DO
THAN CRY OVER WHAT WE HAD
AND I AIN’T BAD AT BEING GOOD
BUT I’M GOOD AT BEING BAD
WELL HONEY SINCE YOU DONE ME WRONG
THIS OLD HALO WON’T STAY ON

SOMEWHERE TONIGHT YOU’LL LIE AWAKE IN BED
WHILE I PAINT THIS TOWN IN LIPSTICK RED
AND IF SOME TALL DARK STRANGER D RIVES ME HOME
THIS OLD HALO WON’T STAY ON

CHORUS:
I GOT AN ANGEL ON MY LEFT SIDE
I GOT A DEVIL ON MY RIGHT
AND WHY’S THAT APPLE TASTE SO SWEET
IF YOU CAN’T TAKE A BITE
I’VE GOT BETTER THINGS TO DO
THAN CRY OVER WHAT WE HAD
AND I AIN’T BAD AT BEING GOOD
BUT I’M GOOD AT BEING BAD
WELL HONEY SINCE YOU DONE ME WRONG
THIS OLD HALO WON’T STAY ON
YEAH, I SAID HONEY SINCE YOU DONE ME WRONG
THIS OLD HALO, NO THIS OLD HALO WON’T STAY ON
Track Name: Back to the River
WHEN SHE WOKE UP SHE KNEW WHAT SHE WAS GONNA DO THAT DAY
THE WEDDING RING WAS BURNING A HOLE IN THE DRAWER SHE HAD TO THROW THAT THING AWAY
SO SHE TOOK IT FROM THE DRESSER AND SHE TUCKED IT IN HER PURSE
WHAT WAS ONCE HER GREATEST BLESSING HAD BECOME HER DEEPEST HURT

SHE DROVE THAT HONDA PAST THE MEMORIES OF THEIR BITTERSWEET ROMANCE
THE PARKING LOT WHERE THEY FIRST KISSED, THE POOL HALL WHERE THEY DANCED
AND WAY OUT TO THAT COUNTRY CHURCH HIGH UP ON THAT RIDGE
WHERE SHE WALKED DOWN CLUTCHING THE RING IN HER HAND AND STOOD CRYING ON THE BRIDGE

CHORUS:
OUT OF THE RIVER IT CAME, BACK TO THE RIVER IT GOES
FALLING WITH THE RAIN TO THE WATER GREY AND COLD
A MINER MUST HAVE PANNED IT
A JEWELER SHAPED THE GOLD
OUT OF THE RIVER IT CAME, BACK TO THE RIVER IT GOES

THERE WAS AN OLD MAN ON THE BANK WHO STOOD AND WATCHED HER FROM AFAR
A SINGLE SILENT WITNESS TO THE BARING OF HER HEART
AND WITH THE BLACK MASCARA RAIN STREAMING DOWN HER FACE
A FALLEN ANGEL SPREADS HER BROKEN WINGS TO FLY BACK UP TO GRACE
AS HER PAST IS WASHED AWAY

CHORUS

WHEN SHE WOKE UP SHE KNEW WHAT SHE WAS GONNA DO THAT DAY
THE WEDDING RING WAS BURNING A HOLE IN HER SOUL SHE HAD TO THROW THAT THING AWAY
Track Name: The World Turns
YOU COULD BE LIVING LIKE A MOVIE STAR
CHAUFFEURED AROUND INSIDE A LONG BLACK CAR
SLEEP IN A MANSION WITH AN OCEAN VIEW
TAKE YOUR VACATION ON A PRIVATE CRUISE

YOU COULD BE PINCHING JUST TO PAY THE RENT
DRIVING A CAR THAT’S FULL OF RUST AND DENTS
YOU COULD BE POOR AS DIRT OR FILTHY RICH
SOMETIMES I WONDER IF IT MATTERS WHICH, ‘CAUSE...

CHORUS:
THE WORLD TURNS, OH THE WORLD TURNS
YEAH THE WORLD TURNS EITHER WAY

YOU COULD BE RACING WITH THE PEDAL DOWN
WRESTLING WITH TIME UNTIL YOUR TIME RUNS OUT
YOU COULD BE STOPPING JUST TO BREATHE THE AIR
HEY, WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE, YOU’RE STILL GONNA GET THERE

REPEAT CHORUS

YOU COULD BE DREAMING OF A BETTER LIFE
BUT THE ONE YOU HAVE IS GONNA PASS YOU BY

CHORUS:
THE WORLD TURNS, OH THE WORLD TURNS
YEAH THE WORLD TURNS ANYWAY
Track Name: Some Men Don't Cheat
ONE FOOT IN THE HALLWAY, AND ONE FOOT OUT THE DOOR
ONE FOOT IN A NEW LIFE, AND ONE STILL IN THE LIFE I LIVED BEFORE
THAT AIN’T MY LIFE NO MORE

BACK OVER MY SHOULDER, THIS HOUSE IS FULL OF PAIN
BUT EVEN THOUGH THE COMFORT’S COLD, IT’S STILL ALMOST ENOUGH TO MAKE ME STAY
BUT I CAN’T LIVE THAT WAY
BECAUSE I STILL BELIEVE THAT

CHORUS:
SOME MEN DON’T CHEAT
SOME MEN DON’T LIE
SOME MEN DON’T NEED WHAT THEY DON’T HAVE TO FEEL SATSIFIED
SO I’LL WALK OUT THIS DOOR
AND DRIVE OFF DOWN THAT STREET
‘CAUSE BABY I DESERVE MORE
YEAH, SOME MEN DON’T CHEAT

BABY I’LL FORGIVE YOU, BUT I JUST CAN’T FORGET
IT’LL HAUNT ME LIKE THE SCENT OF JASMINE PERFUME
WHEN I LAY DOWN MY HEAD
LIKE A GHOST IN OUR BED
THAT’S WHY I GOTTA LEAVE ‘CAUSE


CHORUS

I’LL WALK OUT THAT DOOR
AND LAND ON MY FEET
‘CAUSE BABY I DESERVE MORE
YEAH SOME MEN DON’T CHEAT
