Track Name: Run
Daddy don’t bring home the bacon
Momma don’t butter the bread
The baby’s been crying and pleading
Since the love’s fallen out of the nest

He’s drinkin’ on into the daytime
She’s cryin’ on into the night
Fighting all day and all evening
But when it’s this wrong you can’t make it right

Strike a match and let it burn
Grab the baby from the bathwater
Settle up, live and learn
And run, baby, run

You can lie down deep with a secret
Wallow close in the grave
But it’s the child that sings like a mockingbird
Looking for the way out of the golden cage

Strike a match and let it burn
Grab the baby from the bathwater
Settle up, live and learn
And run, baby, run
Track Name: Little Yellow House
Little yellow house on Bennett Street
The smell of lilac in the backyard stream
Chinese checkers and melted ice cream
The basement secrets that I still keep

All along you were a home to me
I said goodbye, but somehow it won’t leave me

Packing up the treasures of our love in a box
Haunted by the feeling of
Holding onto to the ghost of Sarah
Wasn’t it just yesterday?
Wake up one day and realize that everything has changed

The chair you sat in, the ribboned linens
The time of your living has left the room
This old house will be no more
We’ll lock the memories behind this door

All along you were a home to me
And forever more you will always be

Packing up the treasures of our love in a box
Haunted by the feeling of
Holding onto to the ghost of Sarah
Wasn’t it just yesterday?
Wake up one day and realize that everything has changed


Little yellow house on Bennett Street
I miss you, do you miss me?
Track Name: Western Bell
Take the chain off the door my dear
No one knows that I’m coming here
Turn the covers and cover the mirror -oh-oh
White lines and whisky trail
Binding this fine fate
You’ll try to save it but it’s too late oh-oh

See your heart/soul you left it there
In a room at the Western Bell
In a hand basket to hell
Western Bell Western Bell

Crimson stains on the carpeting
Of a man I hardly knew
I just did what I had to do oh-oh
A dirty deal in a real tight skirt
He took more than he deserved
They call it crime, but it’s justice served oh-oh

See your heart/soul you left it there
In a room at the Western Bell
In a hand basket to hell
Western Bell Western Bell
They check in, but they don’t check out
In the rooms at the Western Bell
You can try but you’re gonna fail (find out)
Western Bell Western Bell

Dark and quiet in a real nice suit
He’s cashing in on a deal he’s due
So save your tears cause you always knew oh-oh

See your heart/soul you left it there
In a room at the Western Bell
In a hand basket to hell
Western Bell Western Bell
They check in, but they don’t check out
In the rooms at the Western Bell
You can try but you’re gonna fail (find out)
Western Bell Western Bell
Track Name: One Step Ahead of the Game
Well there's a little tiny hole in what you have been sayin'
Word has gotten out about it
You can go and water down the truth about it now
But it won't change the way that you played it

Cuz when push comes to shove
Remember this, love
I'll be one step ahead of the game

So just keep your head down when you think of coming 'round
There's nothing more to say about it
Your actions gonna speak louder than your words
And you'll be sitting in a paper tower

Cuz when push comes to shove
Sure enough
I'll be one step ahead of the game

Well if you're gonna fight fire with fire
You're gonna get to see the darker side

Time to pack it in with your tail between your legs
Cuz there's one thing I think you're forgetting
I know all your secrets when you were lying in my bed
One more word and you'll be regretting

Cuz when push comes to shove
Sure enough
I'll be one step ahead of the game
Track Name: Finally This Time
Put your arms around me and don't say a word
Put your head on my shoulder 'cuz I know it's hurts
Something remembers how this will go
When you're not fighting the fight anymore

Well there's no use in lying we've been playing this game
Expecting the worst and hoping for it to change
So lay it all open; throw your cards down
You just gotta play it til you play it out

Finally it's gone
Finally it's broken
Finally it's over
And I'm still hanging on
Turn down all the talking
Leave it all behind
Fold up your defenses
This time

It's only a feeling that's likely to change
I'm not going nowhere til you stop running away
Something remembers how this will go
When you're not fighting the fight anymore

Finally it's gone
Finally it's broken
Finally it's over
And I'm still hanging on
Turn down all the talking
Leave it all behind
Fold up your defenses
This time
Track Name: The Crown
Is every turn you turn around taking you further away?
Is everything you thought you knew turning the other way?
Follow down that lonely road of second guessing and doubt
Get yourself as low as you let yourself before you let yourself out

Higher, higher, higher all the way to the crown
higher, higher, higher all the way to get down

Is your heart in line with your blue sky streak speaking to your core
Making room for something else calling you back to the door
And every time you yield even when it makes you cry
You’re one step closer to what you came here for

Higher, higher, higher all the way to the crown
higher, higher, higher all the way to get down

Ain’t no truth until you see
The only truth is what you believe

Higher, higher, higher all the way to the crown
higher, higher, higher all the way to get down
Track Name: Fool
Fool
fool for love
I have tried again
But words that you say now only hurt me and turn my heart to stone
Over + over.....
I’m just a fool for it

Lure
Lure me in
The charm of falling in
But you deny me something sweeter
It’s all I ask of you
Over + over
I’m just a fool for it

Fool
fool for love
I have tried again
But words you won’t say now only hurt me and turn my heart to stone
Over + over.....
I’m just a fool for it
I’m just a fool for it
Track Name: Take it or Leave it
Push me, pull me, chain me to the back seat
Chew it all up and spit it back out
Tease me, please me, make me think you love me
Tell me that you can’t do without it

Talk straight through me i ain’t the kind to fall for excuses
Cheap games and losing i’ll only let you bury the bruises

Oh-oh-oh here we go
I’ve been around the block enough to know
Oh-oh-oh here we go
Take it or leave it I don’t give a damn

Play me, shame me you don’t know the first thing
'Bout how this is gonna go down
Shakin' those senses, rendered defenseless
Ya think you gonna make it to the end of this round

Talk straight through me I ain’t the kind to fall for excuses
Cheap games and losing i’ll only let you bury the bruises

Oh-oh-oh here we go
I’ve been around the block enough to know
Oh-oh-oh here we go
Take it or leave it I don’t give a damn
