Track Name: Tumbling Down
no, it don't get any easier
just the same old dumb mistakes
and i've grown too god damn familiar
with losing every inch i make

gone and got my picture in the papers
saw my name spelled out in lights
can't say it done me any favors
met a bunch of people i don't like

there ain't much sun from where i'm standin'
come rain or come shine i'll be staying in

'cause it ain't the fall that gets you,
it's the tumblin' down

lord those whippoorwills got a hold on me
like a song i used to know
green kentucky hills of tennessee
come and take me to my home

never been one for sentimentality, but
went and found my mind tonight
always said that you would never leave
another one that i got right

there ain't much sun from where i'm standin'
rain or come shine i'll be staying in

'cause it ain't the fall that gets you,
it's the tumblin' down
Track Name: Most Of The Time
most of the time you know she's rolling her eyes
only get a word or two, get shut out her life

ain't like a woman to take that wind out your sails
go and cause commotion like a bat out of hell

most of time you know i'm just scraping by
wasting money on cigarettes and kentucky rye

ain't it like a man to lose every dime he got
i'm learning all those lessons that my daddy taught

all i know is i've had enough
don't it feel like time is passing you by
staring up that hill i can't help but cry
most of the time
most of the time

most of the time, you know, she's hanging around
picking my life apart and dragging me down

ain't it like a woman, can't find one thing she like
well, I'm not sure she loves me but she do love a fight

all i know is i've had enough
don't it feel like time is passing you by
staring up that hill i can't help but cry
most of the time
most of the time
Track Name: Easter Monday
after jesus died up on the cross
he turned around and took sunday off
met some friends and just headed home
sometime a man would rather be alone

monday morning finally rolls around
still in bed around a quarter to twelve
crown of thorns still laying on the floor
don’t seem so special to him any more

misery, wash right over me
there are no songs left to sing

checked his phone, missed a bunch of calls
no the world never felt so small
spend your whole life chasing trains
you never dream you’ll catch up one day

it’s like his daddy said happened to him
you’re on the outside looking in
turn around and grab yourself a win
and everybody wants to be your friend

misery, wash right over me
there are no songs left to sing
left me be, i am lost at sea
with no reason to believe
Track Name: Start Swinging
i had this thought
we could just take off
just pack up and go
and not tell a soul

maybe call from the road
just to let them all know
we ain’t coming back
just leave it at that

you find a song
and you start singing
they knock you down
you get back up and you start swinging

yeah i know
it’s all a man can do
well this one’s for me and you

i bought me a ride
from a friend of mine
she ain’t much to see
but she belongs to me

tell me i’m right
and we’ll teach that bird to fly
i’ll get myself clean
drown in glycerin

you find a song
and you start singing
they knock you down
you get back up and you start swinging

yeah i know
it’s all a man can do
well this one’s for me and you
Track Name: World Come Undone
ain't a thing in the world
could make you happy
not even the things
that make you happy

it's all gone wrong
in a world come undone

it's the same old song
i sing about you
my arms ain't long enough
to wrap around you

it's all gone wrong
in a world come undone

find a hole and crawl inside
bring along some brandywine
to keep you warm

disappear a while
the fireflies
will lead you home

it's all that you got
but it's not like
it does any good

ain't a thing in the world
could make you happy
not even the things
that make you happy

it's all gone wrong
in a world come undone

it's the same old song
i sing about you
my arms ain't long enough
to wrap around you

it's all gone wrong
in a world come undone

talk about those dreams you had
the castles in the sand
the hearts you'd break

that girl you thought you were
you watched a piece of her
just slip away

it ain't like a lie
but it ain't like
it's telling the truth
Track Name: That Old Famous Smile
maybe it was me
maybe it was you
could’ve been the whiskey
might’ve been the moon

but it sure was sweet, honey
like an old familiar tune
‘cause you were meant for me
and i was meant for you

skin and bones
that old famous smile
sure has been a while

the dreams and the dust
the different shades of blue
all that we wanted
how little we knew

but it sure was sweet, honey
i gave myself to you
but when you ain't got nothing
you ain't got much to lose

just a touch of rain
such a gentle sound
i miss you coming ‘round

meet me uptown
i’ll throw on something new
fix your hair up real pretty
and bring those dancing shoes

we could stay out all night
just like we used to do
don’t the stars look good, honey?
well, they’re up there for you

skin and bones
that old famous smile
sure has been a while
Track Name: Easier That Way
you ask me if i'm happy
you see me stumbling around from day to day
sometimes its easier that way

you wish you never had met him
you keep your sail out the wind and pray for rain
sometimes its easier that way

but we're just hoping to find
innocence in less innocent times

we're all waiting for signs
for this feeling to die
a relief from our minds
for this fear to subside

i don't know if i know you
but i know that i need to see your face
i'm lost and wasting away

i don't know if i know you
as if i conjured a spell to melt away
the days spent wasting away

but we're just hoping find
innocence in less innocent times

we're all waiting for signs
for this feeling to die
a relief from our minds
for this fear to subside
Track Name: Kris & Rita
leave the light on at your place
i’ll be around as soon as i get paid
i got forty bucks to my name
another thing about me i can’t change

no, you never seem to mind
yeah, we turn that water into wine

just pick the song and i’ll sing along
like kris and rita done
lord knows, sure use the fun

feel like forgetting where i been
grab a couple cold ones out the fridge
and slide on over this a’way
we’ll see what kind of trouble we can make

a pair of ten cent valentines
drinking coors by candle light

just pick the song and i’ll sing along
like kris and rita done
lord knows, sure use the fun

darling, don’t it sound like a symphony
like an old time melody

just pick the song and i’ll sing along
like kris and rita done
lord knows, sure use the fun

leave the light on at your place
i ain’t about to give up on the day
yeah, let’s get loud it’s okay
put a record on come dance with me-ee

oh, just a couple minutes more
and i’ll be a’knocking at your door

just pick the song and i’ll sing along
like kris and rita done
lord knows, sure use the fun
Track Name: We'll Be Fine
i don't know if i am cursed
i just know that it gets worse and worse
baby, see if you can understand
i've always tried my best to be your man

allow me every dumb mistake
forget every time i've walked away
ain't no reason why you should feel down
let's grab some whiskey, turn this day around

but i'm thinking we'll be fine

ain't got a clue of what you feel
like songs that you should write but never will
you pick the subject up along the way
but never figure out just what to say

reassuring someone else
sounds like you're trying to convince yourself
sample every single remedy
say you're coming home, eventually

but i'm thinking we'll be fine

i don't know if i am cursed
but i don't see how it could get much worse
don't even have the strength left to pretend
baby i just wanna be your friend

so get your back up off the wall
we don't even have to talk at all
i'll show you feelings that i've always felt
you look so good, i can't control myself

but i'm thinking we'll be fine
Track Name: The Road
hop a train to god knows where
little bit of kick drum and a snare
a steady breeze in your hair

can't you hear that whistle blow
like a big ol' slide trombone in the air
sing along
sing along

all they ever wanted was friend
but all you ever left them was alone
there's a time and place to make amends
but that don't mean a thing out on the road
no that don't mean a thing out on the road

there's a string of broken hearts
leading back from when you started to crawl
and it's all in a song

cigarettes and whiskey straight
hard truths and bad mistakes and the fights
the words you write
sing along

all they ever wanted was friend
but all you ever left them was alone
there's a time and place to make amends
but that don't mean a thing out on the road
no that don't mean a thing out on the road

find another verse or two
just another town you knew for a night
a flash of light
that's all
