Tucson

Bought myself a one way ticket into Tucson 
With shaking hands I hailed myself a cab 
Six long years of nothin' but the bottle 
Losin' every bit of soul I had 

That highway desert ride went on forever 
Whiskey colored sunset filled the sky 
The driver asked me what brought me to Tucson 
I said sir I got a pain I just can't hide 

And the double doors swung open 
And I said here's to hopin' 
There's somethin' better on the other side 

Cuz the lines all  blurred 
My words all slurred, can't tell day or night 
And I'm on the edge of alive or dead, but nothin feels quite right 
But there's a new wind blowin', through Sierra tonight.  

Met a man the wind would blow him over  
My new friend said I'm just tryin to escape the pain 
Cuz one too many drinks has got me desperate 
But clarity's the new goal of the game. 

And the double doors swung open 
And I said here's to hopin' 
There's somethin' better on the other side 

Cuz the lines all  blurred 
My words all slurred, can't tell day or night 
And I'm on the edge of alive or dead, but nothin feels quite right 
But there's a new wind blowin', through Sierra tonight.  
But there's a new wind blowin', through Sierra tonight.  

 

Back There Again

It hurts when you stay.
Hurts like hell when you leave.
Might feel good for you
But baby what about me?

If I could have it my way
I'd never let you go 
Keep running in circles 
Just to hold you close

Cuz my heart goes to that familiar place
And my soul's on fire, when I see that face 
Don't let me go back there again 
I wanna go back there again

Then we go there 
When I fell into you 
Back to a place where 
We do what lovers do. 

If I could have it my way
I'd never let you go 
Keep running in circles 
Just to hold you close 

Cuz my heart goes to that familiar place
And my soul's on fire, when I see that face 
Don't let me go back there again 
I wanna go back there again

If I could have it my way
I'd never let you go 
Keep running in circles 
Just to hold you close 

Cuz my heart goes to that familiar place
And my soul's on fire, when I see that face 
Don't let me go back there again 
I wanna go back there again

Can't Get Close to You

Im half way through a love song
it's 2 o'clock am
you're like cigarettes and coffee
keeping me up again

I've been so patient
you've been so blind
but lovers come and lovers go
I guess it's not our time

If I could climb these walls around you
I'd be your closest friend
your lover and your laughter
but you won't let me in

every rule of mine I've broken
my defense in pieces too
no matter what I try to do
I can't get close to you

I'm your first call in the morning
Last call before bed
Your ride when you've been drinking
Was it something that I said?

I have been so patient
you have been so blind
but lovers come lovers go
I guess it's not our time

If I could climb these walls around you
I'd be your closest friend
your lover and your laughter
but you won't let me in

every rule of mine I've broken
my defense in pieces too
no matter what I try to do
I can't get close to you

 

Dallas

You told me last night you were leaving
Underneath the Carolina moon
You and me are overlying seasons
Sharing rain but not enough to bloom

Different times different places

Now that you're gone
I'll try to move on
Hold my breath
But not too long

I knew all along
Our timing was wrong
No regrets
I have to let you go
Off to Dallas all alone

Driving thru Jackson, Mississippi
Wondering if you're thinking about me
As you pass thru Shreveport, Louisiana
Are there tears, is it hard for you to see

Different times different places

Did you settle down
Did you find a place
Now I'm not around
is there a smile on your face
Cuz baby If you're happy, then I'm okay
I'll find a way to make it through today

Now that you're gone 
I'll try to move on 
Hold my breath 
But not too long 

I knew all along 
Our timing was wrong 
No regrets 
I have to let you go 
Off to Dallas all alone



 

Dan's Song

Maybe you've got a balcony looking out over the angels
Maybe you can see them, singing right there through the clouds.
Bet you're lookin' down on your babies, your momma and daddy too
Knowing one of these days I'm gonna walk on down that street of gold with you.

Singin walk on down, where the sunlight never fades
Walk on down, where the pain just sails away
Up to the gates, and when I come walking through.
One of these days I'm gonna walk on down that street of gold with you.

There's a lot of things in life, that I don't understand
Everybody follows this winding road, but no one knows the plan
But there's one thing I know for sure, that when I meet my end.
It's good to know when I get to heaven that I'm gonna find a friend.

Singin walk on down, where the sunlight never fades
Walk on down, where the pain just sails away
Up to the gates, and when I come walking through.
One of these days I'm gonna walk on down that street of gold with you.

Singin walk on down, where the sunlight never fades
Walk on down, where the pain just sails away
Up to the gates, and when I come walking through.
One of these days I'm gonna walk on down that street of gold with you.

One of these days I'm gonna walk on down that street of gold with you.



 

Into the Night

You hung the moon with those eyes
Leavin the boys high and dry
You loved a man escaping pain for awhile

It's time we give this a try
While we're young, and feel so alive
Take my hand let's see where we wake up tomorrow

She got legs for days, makes me crazy
But can't tell wrong from right
Drivin blazed cuz Jesus saves
Off into the night
Into the night

You said it's love at first sight
I'm thinking now is the tim the time
Come on in I'll be staying here for awhile.

She got legs for days, makes me crazy
But can't tell wrong from right
Drivin blazed cuz Jesus saves
Off into the night
Into the night

She got legs for days, makes me crazy
But can't tell wrong from right
Drivin blazed cuz Jesus saves
Off into the night
Into the night

 

So Soft, So Sweet

Those eyes gonna be the end of me.
Making my heart, skip a beat. 
Your laugh, your smile already used to 
To make you laugh that's my job to do.  

Into you, I fall right through
All of me means all of you
make me a better man
trust me now I know you can

I see it clearly now
I don't know why or how
I thank God you're here with me
Your love for me so soft so sweet

Those eyes gonna be the start of me
In my mind I know we'll be
Write it down in this tune
Already feel so damn close to you.

Into you, I fall right through
All of me means all of you
make me a better man
trust me now I know you can

I see it clearly now
I don't know why or how
I thank God you're here with me
Your love for me so soft so sweet

Into you, I fall right through
All of me means all of you
make me a better man
trust me now I know you can

I see it clearly now
I don't know why or how
I thank God you're here with me
Your love for me so soft so sweet

 

Where One Life Ends

 I remember the day
when my life seemed to change
they were fading away
at a secret, I couldn't shake

I wish who I am now
Could have been there to tell me...

Dont you give up don't you give in
dont you dare let them win
you just got to trust, what's been has been
where one life ends, another begins

What'd I do to deserve
ridicule stones made of words
they were breaking my nerves
sanity on the verge

I wish who I am now 
Could have been there to tell me... 

Dont you give up don't you give in 
dont you dare let them win 
you just got to trust, what's been has been 
where one life ends, another begins

thought you'd lost it all,
for ten long years
fighting demons inside

been through it all, it didn't kill me
so I'm pleading one last time

Dont you give up don't you give in
dont you dare let them win
you just got to trust, what's been has been
where one life ends, another begins

"Too Old for this Town" 

Got broad st. in the rearview
I think it's time for something new

Got headlights on the highway
tailights starting to fade

Driving down 316
Got Petty on the radio
Running down a dream
This town is slowing down

Fours years, drinking all night
Skipping classes, just getting by
I'm too old for this town
But too young to slow down

Got six strings riding shotgun
Singing to myself, born to run
They say fame won't come easy
That's alright, I've got all I need

Right here.....

Driving Down 316
Got petty on the radio
Running down a dream
That town was slowing me down

Fours years, drinking all night
Skipping classes, just getting by
I'm too old for that town.......

So I'm heading down 316
Petty on the radio chasing my dream
That town was slowing me down

Four years, drinking all night
Skipping classes, just getting by
I'm too old for that town
But to young to slow down
