Track Name: Oh My World
We marinate in lemonade on a humid summer's night
Dance among the fireflies and catch them in mid-flight
Tumble over backwards and lie down cheek to cheek
Oh my world are you the girl God made for me

We boldly speak of nothing deep under speckled midnight skies
And count the constellations from reflections in our eyes
Slowly intertwining our arms down to our feet
Oh my world are you the girl God made for me

My my, how your warm embrace
Turned me into a man of faith
You're much too heavenly for God to be just a dream

Chest to cheek we fall asleep beneath a cherry moon

We both awake to morning rays bleeding through the trees
Dust aside the milky way and pick away the leaves
I walk you home in wrinkled clothes then linger on your street
Thinking oh my world are you the girl God made for me
Oh my world are you the girl God made for me
Track Name: Change Your Mind
I'm alright if you're ok
I've moved on and I've heard you've done the same
It's probably best that we stay this way
But if you came back I wouldn't complain

If you should ever change your mind about giving love a second chance
The moment we close our eyes I'm breaking all my current plans
Whether it's wrong or right we can turn it on a dime
If you should ever choose to change your mind

I don't write and you don't write to me
I don't call and my phone never rings
It's probably best that we don't say a thing
But if you spoke up I'd be relieved

If you should ever change your mind about giving love a second chance
The moment we close our eyes I'm breaking all my current plans
Whether it's wrong or right we can turn it on a dime
If you should ever choose to change your mind

Promise me that if your heart should realign
You won't keep it inside

If you should ever change your mind about giving love a second chance
The moment we close our eyes I'm breaking all my current plans
Whether it's wrong or right we can turn it on a dime
If you should ever choose to change your mind
Track Name: Adina
When you wake up will you question your conscience
Regret your decision to love me again
When you wake up will you wish I were sleeping to
To help make your leaving hurt less in the end

Oh Adina, my hearts grown anxious as dawn breaks the darkness and the sun starts its climb
Oh Adina, I'm growing impatient waiting for morning to know if you're mine

Or, will you wake up and whisper a greeting
Dreamily smiling, not moving a bone
And will I finally have you right back where I need you
Because I've learned without you this house ain't a home

Oh Adina, my hearts grown anxious as dawn breaks the darkness and the sun starts its climb
Oh Adina, I'm growing impatient waiting for morning to know if you're mine

So, when you wake up I'll act like I'm sleeping
Faraway dreaming to not cause alarm
And if you stay put as light warms the pillow
I will be thankful that you're back in my arms
I will be thankful that you're back in my arms
Track Name: Just What You Did
I drew a gun to my disorder blew it clear across my shoulder
So that I could start all over again
And as the buckshot barrel echoed I could hear my woman bellow
“Dear God, what have you done you stupid man”

She said, “We’re drowning in our debt and can’t afford another loan
And if we miss the mortgage we’ll be forced to leave the home
How could you take your life away from both your wife and kid
Good God, how dare you do just what you did”

Free from all the muddled matter I felt lighter than a feather
As the angels brought my soul to heaven’s gate
But there was not one joyous sound as I approached the hallowed ground
And it was clear that Pete would choose a different fate

He said, “It’s come to my attention, there are things we must address
Like if your wife should stiff the bank then they’ll have to repossess
How could you take your life away from both your wife and kid
Good God, how dare you do just what you did”

I watched all my plans unravel as his fingers graced the gavel
I was doomed unless I thought on my feet
I promised Peter I’d pay penance, to receive a softer sentence
One that doesn’t scorn with devil horns and heat

He said, “It’s really not my nature but I’ll grant you one more chance
To prove that you are worthy of our Lord and Savior’s hand
But, clemency’s revoked if I should hear that you have sinned
Go on, just go undo just what you did”

I was sent back down to Earth to prove my piety and worth
By tilling dirt for all the crops my wife must sow
But on the moment I arrived my heart could not believe my eyes
For there I stood inside a body not my own

Falling on all fours I cursed the lord for being cruel
Old Saint Peter placed my soul inside the body of a mule
Forever forced to bear the burden of my wife’s unyielding whip
Good God, how dare you do just what you did
Track Name: 3 am
It's 3 am and I'm still out
And you're in bed, safe and sound
Oh, I wish I had one less round before coming home

Got no keys to let me in
No excuse for where I've been
Looks like the couch for me again

One drink became two
Then one more came from a gentleman I knew
And I should've quit before 4, 5, and 6
Because a woman like you deserves better than this

So, do I dare ring the bell
Face the tears and tearful yells
'Cause now the porch seems awful swell to me

One drink became two
Then one more came from a gentleman I knew
And I should've quit before 4, 5, and 6
Because a woman like you deserves better than this

It's 3 am and I'm outside
Growing anxious to run and hide
But as I turn something stirs inside...
Track Name: Moment of Closure (featuring Madi Diaz)
Though I'm sworn to silence my heart aches to speak
Though my face doesn't wear it I'm brittle and weak
And it grows harder to hide all I wish to conceal
When we've got so much time to kill

One kiss is all that I ask
But I'm not making one move unless you'll make one back
Oh tell me, though it's over
Do you wish as well for a moment of closure

Now the TV is off and we've run out of words
Yet, we wade in the silence to see who speaks first
And it drives me crazy and tests all the strength of my will
When we've got so much time to kill

One kiss is all that I ask
But I'm not making one move unless you'll make one back
Oh tell me, though it's over
Do you wish as well for a moment of closure

Put all consequence aside
Show me what's really on your mind

One kiss is all that I ask
But I'm not making one move unless you'll make one back
Oh tell me, though it's over
Do you wish as well for a moment of closure
Track Name: Knee Deep in Wine
You just go your separate way and I'll go mine
Sure it might be hard to be alone, but I'm sure I'll be fine
And I don't see no reason for any long goodbyes
I'll just call on holidays when I'm drunk, knee deep in wine

So just call me when you've got time. Hell, I'll be busy too
It's not like I'll just be sitting around waiting to hear from you
I don't see no reason for any long goodbyes
I'll just call on holidays when I'm drunk, knee deep in wine

You can tell me everything about that boy who bought a diamond ring
And you can cry to me when he treats you bad
And I might smile
When you turn your head
Because you'll be with me
After what he said

So, you just go your separate way and I'll go mine
Sure, it might break my heart to see you leave, but I know I'll be fine
I don't see no reason for any long goodbyes
I'll just call on holidays when I'm drunk, knee deep in wine
