Track Name: Dare Yourself To Dream
verse 1:
Wake up to a new song
Been livin' on a promise for too long
You've seen this world's unforgiving ways, take better men on their best days
But time is the enemy and he never waits

chorus:
Dare yourself to dream
And rise from the ashes of tragedy
That brought you to your knees
And dare yourself to live
And rise from the ashes of yesterday
'Cause tomorrow's never guaranteed

verse 2:
Rise before it's over
Release the past upon your shoulders
'Cause dreams don't ever die, the ghost of what could be keeps asking why
Until you believe enough, enough to try

chorus:
Dare yourself to dream
And rise from the ashes of tragedy
That brought you to your knees
And dare yourself to live
And rise from the ashes of yesterday
'Cause tomorrow's never guaranteed

bridge:
Rise from lost bets, rise from regret
A symphony of voices tearin' you down from within
Rise from mistakes, rise from heartache
Rise from the ashes you buried yourself in
Ooh, ooh

chorus:
Dare yourself to dream
And rise from the ashes
Rise baby, rise baby, rise...

Dare yourself to dream
And rise from the ashes of tragedy
That brought you to your knees
And dare yourself to live
'Cause life's like a movie on the silver screen
So don't you quit until your final scene
Dare yourself to dream
And rise from the ashes of yesterday
'Cause tomorrow's never guaranteed
Track Name: Holding You Down
verse 1:
I'd never know the words to say
Never know the time of day
If you weren’t by my side
To share this amazing ride
Who will be my parachute
When I'm falling from the blues
Nobody’s hand I count on more
To pull me up and keep me off the floor

pre-chorus:
They say nobody knows when it comes and where it goes
It’s alright, baby it’s alright

chorus 1:
Mary, don’t be afraid love
There’s nobody holding you down, holding you
Mary, don’t be ashamed girl
There’s nobody holding you down
Holding you…Down

verse 2:
Guess I gotta let you go
I never let the child show
In your hand you hold the key
To a place you’ll finally be free
So step out your door today
And take a look around the way
Baby everything you dreamed
Is closer than it ever seemed

pre-chorus:
They say nobody knows when it comes and where it goes
It’s alright, baby it’s alright

chorus 2:
Mary, don’t be afraid love
There’s nobody holding you down, holding you
Mary, don’t be ashamed girl
There’s nobody holding you down
Only you…Now


bridge:
You've got the heart, the soul, the love, everyone feels it
You will remain, forever entertaining us, singin’ your song

chorus 3:
Mary, don’t be afraid love
There’s nobody holding you down, only you
Mary, don’t be ashamed girl
There’s nobody holding you down, only you
Mary, lemme say it again girl
There’s nobody holding you down
Only you…Now

There's nobody holding you down
Only you... now
Track Name: Maybe Tomorrow
verse 1:
I’m goin’ places, it’s over today
Time to find what has gone astray
Not a dime, even a number to call
Got my life, baby and that’s about all
Tonight

verse 2:
Build me up just to tear me down
Those dirty needles drove me in the ground
River of scars tell me where I’ve been
They keep me strong when I wanna give in
Tonight, alright

chorus:
Maybe tomorrow, everything will be OK
Maybe tomorrow, I’ll wake up in another place

verse 3:
I’m gettin' better one breath at a time
Ain’t no rushin’ to the finish line
Flushed the pills and the past down the drain
And let the life back into these veins
Tonight, alright

chorus 2:
Maybe tomorrow, everything will be OK
Maybe tomorrow, I’ll wise up and I'll find my way
Maybe tomorrow

bridge:
Ran away from the family
Severed ties with the friends
All I had was an island
In the end

chorus
Track Name: Meet Me In Shelby
verse 1:
Life left ya standing, along this highway
No stars to light the way home, no map to guide you
In the end you must carry your own weight
Out of the darkness inside you

chorus:
So meet me in shelby
Where we shall be released
And I'll be in shelby
Where kindred souls go to meet... tonight

verse 2:
If you can harbor the demons until dawn
I promise a page will turn
And chapters will write on

chorus 2:
And meet me in shelby
Where forgotten have been found
I'll see you where roses
Rise up through stony ground

bridge:
No medicine to stop the hurt, the pounding in your chest
When all you have is your life ahead
These world-weary days can be laid to rest

chorus 1 & 2

outro:
And ride on and fight on
Leave everything behind
And shine on and shine on
Let it all go in time...
Track Name: A Lot Of Fun For A Little While
verse 1:
Once again we say goodbye
We're like a broken record, baby we both know why
And like the swallows we return, girl we loved and lost but we never learn

verse 2:
We sang our hearts from the rooftops
We fought it out in the basement and lost our minds
Should I remind you of the reasons why we're better off a season at a time?

Pre-chorus:
So we say goodbye, don't know why
The future's never ours to know
This love and hate is always toxic
But it's too hard to let go

chorus:
'Cause you're a lot of fun for a little while
A lot of fun for a little while
So lead me back to your door
For one more night
Just for one more...

verse 3:
Once again we say hello
Our memories never serve us better, that's fo sho
But it don't take away a second of the blissful scenes from heaven we've seen

pre-chorus:
We always say goodbye, don't know why
The future's never ours to see
This love and hate is forever toxic
It's so bittersweet when I leave

chorus:
'Cause you're a lot of fun for a little while (yes you are)
A lot of fun for a little while
So lead me back though your door
For one more night
Just for one more...

solo

chorus:
'Cause you're a lot of fun for a little while
I said a lot of fun for a little while
So lead me back to your door...

outro:
Restless hearts are always on the mend
Restless hearts are always on the mend
Restless souls they never mend
Restless souls they never mend

And the laughter's gonna meet the pain
Where I know we're gonna meet again
It's where I know we're gonna meet again
It's when I know we're gonna meet again...

chorus:
And you'll lead me back through your door
For one more night
Just for one more
Just for one more...
Track Name: Hold On
verse 1:
What has been, what’s to come
Getting harder to fight for our lives
When the world pays no mind
Some may say, souls have strayed
And a life been betrayed
Is a curse that lives on and on

Some may save for a day that may never come..

Hold on, baby hold on
Hold on, baby hold on

verse 2:
You may find, that in time
That the days become shorter
And silence can cut like a knife
May be hard to believe
What was drawn in your mind
Is erased and left you deaf and blind

If these walls could tell me just one thing...

chorus:
Hold on, I’m coming home
Rewind and return
Hold on, baby hold on
Hold on, I’m coming home
Rewind and return
Baby hold on, baby hold on, baby hold on

verse 3:
Can't move on, can't rewind
And I long for a place
So far gone it’s erased in my mind
Where to go, what to do
When the smile starts to fray
And the film in my mind tells the tale
Tells the tale

If these wall could tell me just one thing..

chorus:
Hold on, I’m coming home
Rewind and return
Hold on, baby hold on
Hold on, I’m coming home
Rewind and return
Baby hold on, baby hold on
Track Name: Another Lost Soul
verse 1:
Another man turned and left for good
A wife and a son never understood
Wounds will heal but the memories stay
Another lost soul has been betrayed
Been betrayed, been betrayed

verse 2:
Another girl beggin’ for a mainline fix
Gotta get another, gonna be dope sick
Needle and a spoon dig an early grave
Another lost soul has gone astray
Gone astray, gone astray

chorus:
Is anybody out there?
The broken never find their way home
Is anybody out there?
Alone, I’m alone, I’m alone

verse 3:
Soldiers stop, start asking why
A leader gives reasons loaded with lies
Man and a mission in disarray
Another lost soul has died today
Died today, died today

chorus:
Is anybody out there?
The broken never find their way home
Is anybody out there?
Alone, I’m alone, I’m alone
Alone, I’m alone, I’m alone, alone

breakdown/outro:
Another lost soul has been betrayed
Another lost soul has gone astray
Another lost soul has died today
Another lost soul has died today
Died today
Died today
Died today
Track Name: Let It Go
verse 1:
Have a seat, baby lend me your ear
Let me tell ya ‘bout the struggle and the heartache
I took my licks a junkyard dog
Never thought that I deserved a break
Played the part as a whipping boy
So very well I could sell you the script today

pre-chorus:
And I’ve been down to the bottom
I’m never goin’ back again
No you won’t ever believe it
Only 'till you feel it within

chorus:
Let it go, let it go
Take a look at yourself
Baby there’s nobody else here to blame, here to blame
The ghost that haunts from the past
Wants to be free at last
Let it go, let it go, let it go

verse 2:
Let’s raise a glass to the ones we’ve lost
To addiction and afflictions, too cruel to believe
Mama said “ya got to look ahead”
At the road, not the rear view, if you wanna see
Take her word, it’s the only way
To believe, to conceive, everything you dreamed

pre-chorus

chorus

bridge:
Wish I never gave up
Wish I could sow what's been torn
Wish I could leave me behind
Wish I’d never been born
Wish I could, wish I could, wish I could...

solo

chorus
Track Name: Roll On
verse 1:
Outta time, outta hours and days to give
Made my bed but I won’t lay in it
Tonight I’ll dream in black and white
And wake to find that there’s no way back home...

chorus:
Roll on, leave on your way
And know that tomorrow’s another day
Roll on, leave on your way
And know that tomorrow’s another day

verse 2:
Wild winds bring sweet songs to me
Move along now please don’t wait up for me
Two days in the valley of lost souls
I came back tellin’ tales of love so low

pre-chorus:
Came alone and I’ll leave alone
Nothing lost that can be found
And with the wind, the wind I’m rollin’..

chorus

verse 3:
Pages and pages I turn
Never a word do I learn
It ain’t hard, this is not what we need
And it just dies while we watch it bleed

pre-chorus

chorus

outro:
Pages and pages and pages I turn
Never a word do I learn
When will I learn
When will I learn
When will I learn
