Track Name: Hold On Tight
HOLD ON TIGHT

Take my weight in your hands
Tell me not to think at all
Holdin’ on with no hands

Wake me up against the day
Won’t just sit and laugh away
Take those days back that I owe

And on your way down honey
Cash in your chips for something to wear
It gets real cold lying here

And on your way down suga
Sing your songs out to the clouds
They all know you by name
Track Name: Made Of Mistakes I Am
MADE OF MISTAKES I AM

I raise my hand I know I am the man
I raise my voice it is my own choice

I am my own home it lay where I go
I am who I am made of mistakes I am

Caught in a war again the same old sad song
Watchin’ it play out as I stumble along

It brightens my memory to hear the old tune
Feel my own words as they’re coming from you

Wanting more from you I whish could ask
I feel as the fool no escape from the past
Track Name: I Maintain
I MAINTAIN

I’m down for the count
It’s taken
The full amount

Choose to forgive
And maintain

I’ve mistaken all of my friends
As I take aim

I’ve mistaken all of my friends
As I take aim
Track Name: Give Me A Warning
GIVE ME A WARNING

Stay ‘til the morning has come
Wait ‘til the morning to run

Stay until morning has come
Wait until morning to run

Give me a warning
Before you leave
Track Name: As I Get Older
AS I GET OLDER

As I get older
Being solidifies
Track Name: Rock & Roll Life
ROCK & ROLL LIFE

Smoke filled clothes they change my state
I live my life by rock & roll
Beer soaked fields they stain my feet
Beat my way to center stage
Rumors fly as they light the stage

Held within is the key to life
We’re not just prisoners here
My heart’s on fire all opened up and free
Come morning time with rock and roll I’m free

Cigars smokes weed tokes they fill the air
I live my life by rock and roll
Crawl on top twenty outstretched hands
I live my life by rock and roll

Held within is the key to life
We’re not just prisoners here
My heart’s on fire all opened up and free
Come morning time with rock and roll I’m free
Keep groovin’ forever free
Track Name: My Woman
MY WOMAN

Welcome to her open arms, my woman
Took me in from the crystal cold, my woman
To simply look will freeze your mind, my woman
Back for all but the same old lies, my woman

Flowered hair purple heart
My woman she is... near

Back for all but the same old times, my woman
Safe at home in rested sleep, my woman
Woken by she fills my mind, my woman
Leasin’ time we hope to share , my woman

Hidin’ my body where no one can find me but you
I took what was needed and never been cheated by you
Shine of the moon light my fingers grip so tight on you
Shinin’ bright star light kind of reminds me of you
Track Name: I've Got It All
I’VE GOT IT ALL

Hazy shade of the summer
Does it get any better
High tide an the weather
Winter couldn’t seem further
You’ve got to know

I’ve got it all
He’s got it
I’ve got it all today

Lazy days bein’ tired
Chillin’ cool by the fire
Spark it up stoke it higher
And would you call me a liar
If I told this to you

Have a look at my life
And all that can be found
All that’s needed to be
Is what’s inside of me

Have a look at our lives
And all we can be now
All that’s needed to be
Is to believe we’re free
