Blue Lake 03:28
Blue lake in the sunshine Blue lake, sail away Blue lake, winter’s coming Now it’s freezing on a summers day Out along this unknown highway All but forgotten to the world There’s a ghost of ancient history Holding a wild untamed pearl Blue lake in the sunshine Blue lake, sail away Blue lake, winter’s coming Now it’s freezing on a summers day Take the boat out on the water Feel the ripples with my hand The current changes like the seasons Will we make it back to land Blue lake in the sunshine Blue lake, sail away Blue lake, winter’s coming Now it’s freezing on a summers day Heavy cloud, Autumn calling Feel the chill inside your bones Now the warmth’s a distance memory Will I ever make it home Blue lake in the sunshine Blue lake, sail away Blue lake, winter’s coming Now it’s freezing on a summers day Blue lake in the sunshine Blue lake, sail away Blue lake, winter’s coming Blue Lake

Get Back Up 03:52
I remember waitin many years ago Promise from the old man To pick me up, but he didn’t show & I remember thinking “What did I do wrong?” Cos all the other kids were laughing I was walking back streets in the dark to find my home I look back on times when things get rough I stand up. I get knocked down. Feel the hurt of solid ground. Sun will rise tomorrow and Bring another day. Sometimes you bend. Sometimes you break. Gotta live through our mistakes. Life can get a little tough But you get back up. The first time feeling. The feeling you’ve got something of your own. To lose everything you worked for. A series of misfortunes & unknowns. There are times I think I’ve had enough. I feel like giving up. I stand up. I get knocked down. Feel the hurt of solid ground. Sun will rise tomorrow and Bring another day. Sometimes you bend. Sometimes you break. Gotta live through our mistakes. Life can get a little tough But you get back up. Fight for what you love. Got a right to stand up for what matters When you find your place That warm embrace. So no matter what happens. I stand up. I get knocked down. Feel the hurt of solid ground. Sun will rise tomorrow and Bring another day. Sometimes you bend. Sometimes you break. Gotta live through our mistakes. Life can get a little tough Then you get back up. When you get back up. Fight for what you love. When you get back up. When you get back up. When you get back up. Fight for what you love. When you get back up. When you get back up. When you get back up. Fight for what you love. When you get back up.

One Year 03:32
One year I hit the city With a pocket full of dreams Sold everything I owed For a used guitar All the songs that I believed in Nobody wants to hear them So I play “The Gambler” one more time In this broken down bar Set up in the corner With a whiskey or a beer Playing every song You think a guy should know Every drunken mans suggestion Makes you question your decision Watch the time tick by Till I can go back home One year Oh it seems so long Going through the motions It keeps dragging on Feels like forever Then it disappears You can fall apart Or come together In just one year Ruby, she’s a barmaid Working 52 a year Puts food on the table Keep her kids in school Shes says “Buddy. What’s your problem?” With a smile upon her face There’s a million people Much worse off than you One year Oh it seems so long Going through the motions It keeps dragging on Feels like forever Then it disappears You can fall apart Or come together In just one year I’m just one song away From where I want to be It happens everyday They’ll make a star outta me And I’ll look back and see One year Didn’t seem so long Now that it’s over And I found my song La la la la la Now it’s clear You can fall apart Or come together In just One year Didn’t seem so long Now that it’s over And I found my song La la la la la Now it’s clear You can fall apart Or come together In just one year You can fall apart Or come together In just one year

Get It Done 03:27
I was brought up way down south Wish you coulda seen it Fields stretching miles away Heart beats down against The setting sun Gotta take care of the stock Fences need a mending Houses need a lick of paint Motor needs a fix or we’ll be undone Gotta get it done But when that band rolls into town Kick off your muddy boots See the sun go down Hey raise your glass up in the sky Party till tomorrow Cause you know the reason why Gotta get it done Gotta get it done Gotta have some fun Gotta get it done The winter’s just as hard We drive the stock to higher ground Temperature is way down low Thunder all around And the rain it comes Gotta get it done But when that band rolls into town Kick off your muddy boots See the sun go down Hey raise your glass up in the sky Party till tomorrow Cause you know the reason why Gotta get it done Gotta get it done Gotta have some fun Gotta get it done But when that band rolls into town Kick off your muddy boots See the sun go down Hey raise your glass up in the sky Party till tomorrow Cause you know the reason why Gotta get it done Gotta get it done Gotta have some fun Gotta get it done Gotta get it done Gotta get it done Gotta have some fun Gotta get it done Get it done Get it done Get it done Get it done Gotta get it done Gotta get it done Gotta have some fun Gotta get it done Get it done Get it done

I Can't Stay 04:47
Who’s that taking me away – from here? Lifetime of memories – end of story not quite clear A wave hello turns to goodbye – today Why do people leave with so much left to say? (Cause) I’m looking at myself Wishin I was someone else Don’t wanna go so far away I’m leavin town Don’t wanna go I can’t stay The road is clear - I make my way back home Headlights beaming on the longest drive I’ve ever known Lost in the music as the man plays my song Someday I’ll welcome you to the place where I belong I was looking at myself Wishin I was someone else Don’t wanna go so far away I’m leavin town Don’t wanna go I can’t stay I was looking at myself Wishin I was someone else Don’t wanna go so far away I’m leavin town Don’t wanna go I can’t stay

Crossroads 04:01
This drink is bitter I love it, but I love the buzz more You looked like such a nice guy Your son is watching, Your daughters are watching too A dim light in a dark place With this drug of antisocialism Behind locked doors My private hell I don’t want it anymore Too far down this left hand path I’m running out of road here too damn fast Is their a light on the horizon Cos I can’t see it through the dark Take the exit on the off ramp Take me right back to the start Return me to the crossroads Where it all but fell apart This is how you’ll be remembered Just another one, I don’t care to debate It’s time to make a choice This family, Or the life you’re trying to make You’re their knight in rusted armour But found comfort in a Southern They crave a brighter future You need to reconsider Too far down this left hand path I’m running out of road here too damn fast Is their a light on the horizon Cos I can’t see it through the dark Take the exit on the off ramp Take me right back to the start Return me to the crossroads Too far down this left hand path I’m running out of road here too damn fast Is their a light on the horizon Cos I can’t see it through the dark Take the exit on the off ramp Take me right back to the start Return me to the crossroads Too far down this left hand path I’m running out of road here too damn fast Is their a light on the horizon Cos I can’t see it through the dark Take the exit on the off ramp Take me right back to the start Return me to the crossroads Too far down this left hand path I’m running out of road here too damn fast Is their a light on the horizon Cos I can’t see it through the dark Take the exit on the off ramp Take me right back to the start Return me to the crossroads

It Will Rain 03:54
Plan your day, plan your life. Want the world, aiming high. Room full of no, hall of closing doors Can’t stop my faith And what I’m fighting for As the storm brings in the rain I will go out all the same It will rain. It will rain. All the dark it will contain. Walking through the fog Only stars remain. Tomorrow comes and Sun shines through again It will rain Water’s so deep. Fight so I don’t drown. This old rain Will never keep me down Put on your boots Go slashing through the streets Light comes shining through Heavy clouds retreat. This weather’s driving me insane Sun is shining once again. It will rain. It will rain. All the dark it will contain. Walking through the fog Only stars remain. Tomorrow comes and Sun shines through again It will rain It will rain. It will rain. All the dark it will contain. Walking through the fog Only stars remain. Tomorrow comes and Sun shines through again It will rain It will rain. It will rain. All the dark it will contain. Walking through the fog Only stars remain. Tomorrow comes and Sun shines through again It will rain
