Track Name: Blue Lake
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
Track Name: Get Back Up
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.
Track Name: One Year
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
Track Name: Get It Done
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
Track Name: I Can't Stay
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
Track Name: Crossroads
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
Track Name: It Will Rain
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
