(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Quit Breaking Up With Me

You say its over
With a middle finger
But then you're calling before I turn off my ringer
And I answer cuz I love to hear you're sorry for the 400th time

Well,
You try to leave me but you cant do it
cuz im the only one who puts up with your [?]
I know that secretly you love making out with me right after we fight

Well,
We're always fixing something that was never broken
We're on and off again like sobriety
Get back together every time you're done throwing a fit
So when you gonna quit
breaking up with me

Well,
You think by now
We'd finally get along
But we only feel right when everything is going wrong
and we're back in the habit of pressing each other up and down

Well,
I hate your daddy, you hate my momma
but one thing we dont seem to hate is all the drama
but we never can remember what the hell we were yelling about

Well,
We're always fixing something that was never broken
We're on and off again like sobriety
Get back together every time you're done throwing a fit
So when you gonna quit breaking up with me

I don't know where you think you're going
because you're stuck with me forever and you know it
We're always fixing something that was never broken
We're on and off again like sobriety
Get back together every time you're done throwing a fit
So when you gonna quit breaking up with me
yeah
When you're gonna quit breaking up with me
You know it

Day Drinking

Everybody's always waiting on Friday
Watching that clock and sitting on go
Whatcha' say we find a little warm sunshine
An open umbrella on the patio

I don't need a reason or a happy hour
And hang around for a fireworks show
Get a head start a little sip of somethin'
Off and running here we go
1, 2, 3 here we go

Don't want to wait 'til the sun's sinking
We could be feeling alright
I know you know what I'm thinking
Why don't we do a little day drinking
Why don't we do a little day drinking

Blame it on the work day
Blame it on the heatwave
Blame it on the tick-tock moving too slow
Blame it on any old thing you want to
Ready get set, baby here we go

Don't want to wait 'til the sun's sinking
We could be feeling alright
I know you know what I'm thinking
Why don't we do a little day drinking
Day drinking, day drinking
Why don't we do a little day drinking

Don't want to wait 'til the sun's sinking
We could be feeling alright
I know you know what I'm thinking
Why don't we do a little day drinking

Don't want to wait 'til the sun's sinking
We could be feeling all right
I know you know what I'm thinking
Why don't we do a little day drinking
Why don't we do a little day drinking
Why don't we do a little day drinking

Tumble And Fall

It's a want you, it's a need you, it's a hold on through the pain
It's a get through what you got to, 'cause it can't stay the same
It's a long talk with the lights off, it's the last breath in your lungs
It's the deep end that we jump in, it's the love that we become

We're gonna ride the storm out on a lifeboat
Baby this kind of love is all that we know
We're gonna take a walk out on the trapeze
Even in a wild breeze, we could be the best of them all
Even if we tumble and fall

It's a reach out, it's a white flag, it's a forfeit of the game
It's a let go of the ego, and the whisper of your name
It's a fight for, not a defend, it's a stay out in the rain
It's the knowin' that you love me more than anything

We're gonna ride the storm out on a lifeboat
Baby this kind of love is all that we know
We're gonna take a walk out on the trapeze
Even in a wild breeze, we could be the best of them all
Even if we tumble and fall

It's a want you, it's a need you, it's a hold on through the pain
It's a get through what you got to, 'cause you got to, 'cause we got to

We're gonna ride the storm out on a lifeboat
Baby this kind of love is all that we know
We're gonna take a walk out on the trapeze
Even in a wild breeze, we could be the best of them all
Even if we tumble and fall

Pain Killer

Don't need no whiskey
When I've had a bad day
No prescription honey
when my skies are grey

No poppin the pills
No smokin the pills
That make me feel okay
But you go down easy baby
I could drink you by the case

You're my painkiller
A little dose of you goes a long long way
You're my painkiller
Oh will you take it away
You take it away

Don't need no fixin'
I don't need no therapy
You're love drunk kissin
Is my kinda remedy
You're always lookin to fall
You're like the hair of the dog
When I'm feelin cursed
Don't need no doctor honey
I don't need no nurse

You're my painkiller
A little dose of you goes a long long way
You're my painkiller
Oh will you take it away
You take it away
Oh you take it away
You take it away

Ah La la la la la la la

A little dose of you goes a long long way
You're my painkiller
Oh you take it away
You take it away
Oh you take it away
You take it away

Girl Crush

I've got a girl crush
Hate to admit it but,
I got a hard rush
It's not slowing down
I got it real bad
I want everything she has
That smile and that midnight laugh
She's giving you now

I want to taste her lips
Yeah, cuz they taste like you
I want to drown myself
In a bottle of her perfume
I want her long blond hair
I want her magic touch
Yeah, cuz maybe then
You'd want me just as much
I've got a girl crush
I've got a girl crush

I don't get no sleep
I don't get no peace
Thinking about her
Under your bed sheets
The way that she's whispering
The way that she's pulling you in
Lord knows I've tried,
I can't get her off my mind

I want to taste her lips
Yeah, cuz they taste like you
I want to drown myself
In a bottle of her perfume
I want her long blond hair
I want her magic touch
Yeah, cuz maybe then
You'd want me just as much
I've got a girl crush
I've got a girl crush
Hate to admit it but
I got a hard rush,
It's not slowing down.

Faster Gun

You walk in six gun style
put another bullet in the chamber with your smile

You move in and you don't stop
till your pretty little finger pulls the trigger and the hammer drops

Love for you is like a wild west movie
You always end up on the run
you draw quick and your aim is deadly
and then you ride off in the sun
someday I hope you find a faster gun

Cold steel, gun powder kiss
Livin for the taste of new blood on your lips

Your high noon is a midnight moon
puttin every Jesse James to shame with your gunshot wound

Love for you is like a wild west movie
You always end up on the run
you draw quick and your aim is deadly
and then you ride off in the sun
someday I hope you find a faster gun

Somebody gonna come along and shoot you
like you shot me down
Somebody gonna come along and shoot you down

Somebody gonna come along and shoot you
like you shot me down
Somebody gonna come along and shoot you down

Love for you is like a wild west movie
You always end up on the run
you draw quick and your aim is deadly
and then you ride off in the sun
(Somebody gonna come along and shoot you down)
someday I hope you find a faster gun

Somebody gonna come along and shoot you down

Somebody gonna come along and shoot you
like you shot me down
Somebody gonna come along and shoot you down down

Good People

They say you are who you hang with
It's no coincidence I wanna hang with you
Rise and fall together and troubles is better in twos

Sometimes it feels like a magnet
The way the crazy always sticks with its own kind
I don't believe in E.S.P. but you can read my mind

[Chorus:]
Good people know, good people know
Good people
Good people know, good people know
Good people

A good friend would bail you outta jail
But a better one would be handcuffed to you
Everyone's a winner when all the winners lose

[Chorus]

You can always spot another one when they're nearby
No matter where you look, you're gonna find
Good people know, good people know
Good people

We're guilty by association
Keepin' company with ornery company
Runnin' around with rogues and rounders 'cause we believe

[Chorus]

You can always spot another one when they're nearby
No matter where you look, you're gonna find

[Chorus]

Stay All Night

Wish we could stay all night
Well, we're gonna have to pay for the hotel, oh well
Least the drinks are free
Oh, I don't know if it's right but tonight I'm tyin' one on
You better believe it

The weekend is in, show time is now
Tell all your friends and bring your mom and them
We'll even put you on a list for a small price
So nice to see your face again
Yeah, it feels good to finally be feelin' right
I wish we could stay all night

We're burnin' rubber late for the load-in
Rollin' through the radio, passin' the time
Just enough gas to get there, say a prayer
Lord, let this old Ford Fly
It ain't the fame, the money, the game, gettin' your name on the big marquee
It's all about the song makes your heart thump, feet stomp
The way it's supposed to be
Feels good to finally be feelin' right
Wish we could stay all night

Oh, wish this drink could never end
Hell, I just caught my second wind
Why don't the good stuff ever last
It comes and goes and it goes so fast
They're shuttin' it down and turn on the lights, yeah
Wish we could stay all night

Wish we could stay all night
Can't go home but you can't stay here
Wish we could stay all night
Go on and pop the top on one more beer

Wish we could stay all night
We're gonna have to pay for a hotel, oh well
Wish we could stay all night
Tell all your friends and bring your mom and them
Wish we could stay all night

Save Your Sin

I ain't your mama
I ain't your priest
I got no time to waste on your saving grace
So, get up off your knees please

I ain't whiskey in a bottle
I won't let you forget
Ain't no shot of Novocain
No holy water, cleansing rain
To save your neck, yeah

[Chorus:]
Save your sin for someone else
Save your sin for someone else
Save your sin for someone else
Oh oh oh, not for me

Find yourself a back road
Drive 'till it runs outta dirt
Go on and scream it to the sky
Your filthy lies go on
Confess it 'till it hurts

[Chorus]

Jump in the river, let me go
Ain't deep enough to save your soul
Jump in the river, disappear
Won't be the one to judge you dear

[Chorus]

Live Forever

You roll through life like a rolling fire
I bring the rain like a thunderstorm
Yeah, we found peace on the battlefield
It all makes sense in love and war
It all makes sense in love and war

[Chorus:]
You and me, wild as a willow in a hurricane,
strong enough to stand in the stormy weather
We might be, crazy enough to make history,
'cause the world just ain't the same since we got together
And if we don't die young, we might just live forever

There are Kings and Queens upon their thrones,
that have a love like you and me
Kingdoms rise and Kingdoms fall,
but lovers last eternally
Lovers last eternally

[Chorus]

They might sing us in a song,
or write our names up in the sky
Even when it's carved in stone,
a love like ours goes on and on
A love like ours goes on and on

[Chorus]

You roll through life like a rolling fire
I bring the rain like a thunderstorm

Things You Don't Think About

Dynasty, I built your fantasy
Let you reign over me
Like a king in a palace
Obsession, I was your medicine
And you came after me
Live you couldn't live without it
Like faith in the faithful
I was the loyal in your loyalty
I put my cards on your table
And I treated you like royalty

[Chorus:]
These are the things that you don't think about
When you think about me
These are the things that you don't think about
When you think about me
These are the things that you don't think about
When you think about me
But you're gonna think about 'em when I'm gone

Savior, I always save your deft reputation
Stuck around when you were down
Together, I held you together
Kept you from caving
But now you're crumbling to the ground
I was the arm in your armor
I was the miss in your mistake
And you only make it harder on yourself when you walk away

[Chorus]

Gone, gone, gone

Like faith in the faithful
I was the loyal in your loyalty
I put my cards on your table
And I treated you like royalty

[Chorus x2]

You're gonna think about 'em
You're gonna think about 'em, think about 'em
When I am gone

Turn The Lights On

Sucker punched, down for the count
They stole your thunder then your crown
Paralyzed, just hangin' around
You better get up or get down

Put your money where you're talkin'
Let your assets do the walkin'
So what, the sky is fallin'
Get up or get down
In the shadows, outta time
You ain't bound and you ain't blind

[Chorus:]
Turn the lights on, turn the lights on, baby
Turn the lights on, lift your hands up
Turn the lights on, turn the lights on, baby
Turn the lights on, lift your hands up
Lift your hands up

Swingin' from a chandelier
Ain't no trouble way up here
Shootin' through the atmosphere
Get up or get down

Ain't no time to hit the brakes
Flip the switch and let it shake
Wind it up while you're awake
Get up or get down
Get down, get down

[Chorus]

Lift up your hands, open your eyes
If we're going, we're goin' live

[Chorus]

Turn the lights in, turn the lights on

Silver And Gold

Hangin' out with the scarecrow blues
On the other side of being used
The whine and the whistle of a passing train
Sounds so heavy when it says your name

[Chorus:]
Baby, when you're down, baby, when you're way down
Lost your shine and your feet are cold
You don't have to stay down, you don't have to stay down
You're like silver, you're like gold
You're like silver, you're like gold

Wind caught up in the weather vane
Soaked to the bone from a summer rain
I'll be right here to see you through
The dust, and the rust, and the scarecrow blues

[Chorus x2]
