Track Name: Hurricane
Do you miss me?
Do you ever think about,
All the good things?
And how we used to burn it down,
All the memories,
seem so long ago right now
But baby I got one for you

When you came over
To tell me it was through
Putting out the flame
Just when things got good
Said you were leaving
And there's nothing I can do,
Well it felt just like a hurricane that came out of the blue

Had me thinking,
Trying to see your point of view,
Was it one thing,
Something I could not undo?
I can't believe it
Oh But now I see the truth
Baby this is all on you,

When you came over
To tell me it was through
Putting out the flame
Just when things got good
Said you were leaving
And there's nothing I can do,
Well it felt just like a hurricane that came out of the blue

Couldn't help it so I blame myself,
Till I found out there was somebody else,
Somebody else

When you came over
To tell me it was through
Putting out the flame
Just when things got good
Said you were leaving
And there's nothing I can do,
Well it felt just like a hurricane that came out of the blue
Track Name: The Good Ones
As if it's written in the stone,
from long ago,
that the good die young,
and the bad grow old
Is that the way it goes?
I guess nobody really knows
but if we get things right
maybe we could make it home

Someone tell me why the good ones go,
cause I thought we shall reap from what we sow,
This aint some silly game or a drama TV show
someone tell me why the good ones go

it almost isn't fair,
that life could be so cold
to be here one day then the next day gone
its hard to understand
but thats the way it seems to go
I guess the good Lord's ways are simply not our own

Someone tell me why the good one go,
cause i thought we shall reap from what we sow,
This aint some silly game or a drama tv show
someone tell me why the good ones go...
Track Name: Wasting Our Time
Down at the hotel,
Been drinking since noon,
Its the one place that I know she can't be found,
Stare at the gold ring
wrapped 'round my finger
maybe this promise has worn itself out

Where are we going now
we can't keep on dancing around
quitting aint easy
but baby we're wasting our time

We used to stay up
just talking all night
but lately the talking just turns into fights
the screaming gets louder and turns into quiet
maybe the silence is giving us signs

Where are we going now
we cant keep on dancing around
quitting aint easy
but baby we're wasting our time
Track Name: The Joker
One heart is beating but im barely alive
what is this feeling
why am i surprised
i know all your cards
and all that you're dealing
let me show you mine

I was the Joker
And you were the queen
I wannted it all
But you wanted me
So i threw it all
while you took the blame
it was all my shame

I know it's forgiven
i know it's alright
but dont take it easy on me now
Just let me earn you like I should
just let me fight let me fight for you

I was the cause of that pain in your eyes
oh how could you after all this time
oh through it all you love me the same
you love me the same

I know it's forgiven
i know it's alright
but dont take it easy on me now
Just let me earn you like I should
just let me fight let me fight for you
Track Name: A Mile Away
If I tell the truth well I've always known
honey that I would stay and you would go
maybe I had jumped right hoping i was wrong
cause from the very first day you were already gone

cause I could see it coming from a mile away
like some big clouds on a rainy day
after all was said and done
I was the only one to see it coming from a mile away

We could talk all night trying to work things out
but you have made your mind and there aint no doubt
maybe it is best that i dont put up a fight
and let you leave me now and say goodbye

cause I could see it coming from a mile away
like some big clouds on a rainy day
after all was said and done
I was the only one to see it coming from a mile away
Track Name: There You Are
Neon signs calling me in
looks like th show is just about to begin
lights down low feels like a sin
oh no oh no
shot of whiskey
straight to my head
the same old feeling that ive come to expect
but i wasn't ready for what happened next

There you are
Baby you're as good as it gets
smoking like a lit cigarette
better than a bottle of your finest red

i aint never been the settling kind
But just one looks at you is changing my mind
is it the way you move
or that look in your eye

There you are
Baby you're as good as it gets
smoking like a lit cigarette
better than a bottle of your finest red
Track Name: Dying To Let You Go
Well the church bells are ringing
and i aint been home in a while
cause i been drinking communion
from bottles of whiskey and wine
and the pain i aint feleling
so im gonna take my time
cause sooner or later
we're gonna say goodbye

when our bodies are left on the floor
you keep begging and asking for more
for the first time i finally know
darling im dying to let you go
darling im dying to let you go

well the choir is singing
and im standing at your door
thinking how i should tell you
that i cant come around no more'
cause the love you're needing
is something that i cant afford
Lord knows i dont want to
but i just gotta let you go

when our bodies are left on the floor
you keep begging and asking for more
for the first time i finally know
darling im dying to let you go
darling im dying to let you go

well the church bells are ringing
and im finally willing
to put down that bottle and pray
cuase darling im gonna let you go today
