Make It Sweet

I know it's a drag, I know it's a grind
I know that a dollar ain't worth a dime
Just trying to keep up with the Joneses at the end of the block
I know you get tired, I know you get down
I know you get sick of this soul sucking town
But let's make a little lemonade if lemons is all we got

'Cause I'm stuck on you, you're stuck on me
I never gotta wonder where my honey be
I ain't savin' all my sugar for a Saturday night
Seven days a week I got an appetite
The sunsets like a tangerine
Let's find a road we've never seen
Don't waste another mile or a minute not kissin' me
Life is short, make it sweet

Open sky, glimpse of heaven, take the top off the CJ-7
Let that surfside San Anne wind mess up your hair
And let that windshield frame the ocean
Radio keep coast-to-coastin'
If we don't get where we're going, baby I don't care
I'm already there

'Cause I'm stuck on you, you're stuck on me
I never gotta wonder where my honey be
I ain't savin' all my sugar for a Saturday night
Seven days a week I got an appetite
The sunsets like a tangerine
Let's find a road we've never seen
Don't waste another mile or a minute not kissin' me
Life is short, make it sweet

Days will be long but the years will fly right by
We'll never be as young as we are tonight
Baby, ain't that right? Yeah

'Cause I'm stuck on you, you're stuck on me
I never gotta wonder where my honey be
I ain't savin' all my sugar for a Saturday night
Seven days a week I got an appetite
The sunsets like a tangerine
Let's find a road we've never seen
Don't waste another mile or a minute not kissin' me
Life is short, make it sweet

Life is short, make it sweet
Oh yeah yeah, yeah yeah

Smooth Sailing

I feel like a beat up back road
All full of potholes
Man, I'm on a hell of a ride
Doing my best and I can't get arrested
I can't get time on my side
Down on my luck and I'm down on my knees
And I'm down to my last dirty dime
Red sky morning, it keeps on pouring
Just like the tears in my eyes

I'm looking for smooth sailing
Feeling the breeze on my back
Get my blues fading
My weather and my wheels on track
Come hell or high water
The sun's gonna shine
Might not be tomorrow but I know I'm gonna find
Smooth sailing
Watch me sail away

The flowers are dying
My woman is crying herself to sleep every night
And people try to be nice and they give me advice
But they ain't got a dog in this fight
What's left of my faith is a drop in the tank
Here lately, I've been running on fumes
But there's a new sun rising on the horizon
Lord, I hope I get there soon

I'm looking for smooth sailing
Feeling the breeze on my back
Get my blues fading
My weather and my wheels on track
Come hell or high water
The sun's gonna shine
Might not be tomorrow but I know I'm gonna find
Smooth sailing
I'm looking for smooth sailing

I could use it, I could use it
I could use a little tide turn
I could use it before I lose it
I could use a little
I could use a little smooth sailing

I'm looking for smooth sailing
Feeling the breeze on my back
Get my blues fading
My weather and my wheels on track
Come hell or high water
The sun's gonna shine
Might not be tomorrow but I know I'm gonna find
Smooth sailing
I'm looking for smooth sailing
Watch me sail away

One Man Band

Been flyin' solo for so long
Nobody's singin' the harmony
Up there just me and my shadow
No bass, no guitar, no tambourine

And I found you like a melody
You were singin' in the same key as me
We had 'em dancin' in the streets

I don't wanna be a one man band
I don't wanna be a rolling stone, alone
Puttin' miles on a run-down van
Baby, we can take our own show on the road
I'll lay down the beat, you'll carry the tune
We'll get tattoos, and we'll trash hotel rooms
Baby, take my hand
I don't wanna be a one man band
No

I wanna run down your wild dreams
And I wanna chase every high with you
Count every rip in these old jeans
We'll never learn how to sing the blues

If I'm gonna be famous
Girl, I wanna be famous with you
We got our own little groove

I don't wanna be a one man band
I don't wanna be a rolling stone, alone
Puttin' miles on a run-down van
Baby, we can take our own show on the road
I'll lay down the beat, you'll carry the tune
We'll get tattoos, and we'll trash hotel rooms
Baby, take my hand
'Cause I don't wanna be a one man band

When the spotlight goes cold, and the curtains come down
The chairs are all stacked, and there's no one around
And nobody's payin', we'll still be playin'

I don't wanna be a one man band
I don't wanna be a rolling stone, alone
Puttin' miles on a run-down van
Baby, we can take our own show on the road
I'll lay down the beat, you'll carry the tune
We'll get tattoos, and we'll trash hotel rooms
Baby, take my hand
'Cause I don't wanna be a one man band
I don't wanna be a one man band

Never Be Sorry

We swung our feet off of the edge of the moon
We  got that high for a minute
Sometimes  forever gets away from you
No matter how hard you grip it

Sorry the sky fell down
Sorry  I don't know why
All  we do is apologize

Oh, but I'll never be sorry for my hands in the pockets
Of  your hoodie, called you "Sugar" just to make you smile
And I'll never be sorry for the shoes that I bought you
In Chicago, we were walking down the Miracle Mile
Oh I, oh I

I'll never be sorry, I'll never be sorry (ooh)
I'll never be sorry for loving you (ooh)
I'll never be sorry, I'll never be sorry (ooh)
I'll never be sorry for loving you
Sometimes two people end up victims of love
It don't work out like you planned it (oh, no, no, no)
Just 'cause we couldn't get the stars to line up
Don't mean we leave empty-handed

Sorry the sun came up
Sorry the second verse
Just wasn't as sweet as the first

Oh, but I'll never be sorry for that night in Santa Barbara
We got locked out of your car in the pouring rain
And I'll never be sorry for missing the party
'Cause the way your body looked in that dress blew me away
Oh I, oh I

I'll never be sorry, I'll never be sorry
I'll never be sorry for loving you
I'll never be sorry, I'll never be sorry
I'll never be sorry for loving you

Oh I, oh I

I'll never be sorry, I'll never be sorry
I'll never be sorry, baby
I'll never be sorry, I'll never be sorry
I'll never be sorry for loving you

Yeah, I'll never be sorry for my hands in the pockets
Of your hoodie, called you "Sugar" just to make you smile
Yeah, I'll never be sorry for the shoes that I bought you
In Chicago, we were walking down the Miracle Mile
Oh I, oh I

I'll never be sorry, I'll never be sorry (oh, I'll never be sorry)
I'll never be sorry for loving you (I'll never be)
I'll never be sorry, I'll never be sorry (I'll never be sorry)
I'll never be sorry for loving you
I'll never be sorry

My Heart Is A Bar

Well, I have a reputation
Of being a late night destination
Like I'm some kind of vacation
For lost souls

My door is always open
They come in lonely, they come in broken
To figure out where they're going
Then they go

And when they don't need me no more
I'm left sweeping up the floor

My heart is a bar and I'm closing it down
So find somewhere else to get drunk in this town
I'm tired of being a shoulder and never having one around
My heart is a bar and I'm closing, I'm closing it down

Well, I've come to the conclusion
That true love is an illusion
You're being used or you're using someone else

Well, I'm sick of all the noise
So kill the lights and pay the boys
Fire the band and take the poison off the shelf
C'est la vie, farewell

My heart is a bar and I'm closing it down
So find somewhere else to get drunk in this town
I'm tired of being a shoulder and never having one around
My heart is a bar and I'm closing, I'm closing it down

I've taken my last fall
I'm making my last call

My heart is a bar and I'm closing it down
So find somewhere else to get drunk in this town
I'm tired of being a shoulder and never having one around
My heart is a bar and I'm closing, I'm closing

My heart is a bar and I'm closing it down
So find somewhere else to get drunk in this town
I'm tired of being a shoulder and never having one around
My heart is a bar and I'm closing, I'm closing it down

I'm closing it down
I'm closing it down

Midnight Mess Around

You're riding right beside me in my car
Looking like you wouldn't tell me no
I'm thinking about taking it too far
I don't think that we can make it home
A hotel room or a parking lot
'Cause I got it bad and I can't stop
The feeling that I gotta have you right now

How 'bout a midnight, midnight mess around
I know which road, which road to take you down
So let your hair and your dress fall to the ground
How 'bout a midnight, midnight mess around

Baby, keep an eye out for the cops
'Cause we're taking it anything but slow
A little dirty but it's hot
You seem to like it when I lose control
Girl, you know it ain't safe to drive
'Cause I can't seem to keep my eyes
Off anything and everything you do

How 'bout a midnight, midnight mess around
I know which road, which road to take you down
Just let your hair and your dress fall to the ground
How 'bout a midnight, midnight mess around

It's getting late but it's too early to be shutting it down
So how 'bout

How 'bout a midnight, midnight mess around
I know which road, which road to take you down
Let your hair and your dress fall to the ground
How 'bout a midnight, midnight mess around

A little midnight, midnight mess around
I know which road, which road to take you down
Just let your hair and your dress fall to the ground
How 'bout a midnight, midnight mess around

A little midnight, midnight mess around
A little midnight, midnight mess around, mess around
Just a little mess around
Just a little mess around
Yeah

Do It With Me

If you wanna fall
Baby, you know who to call
You can always fall into me
If you wanna hang
Girl, you know it ain't no thang
You can hang like a peach on a tree

You can be the gin
And tonic on my lips when
Everybody else goes home
I could be the throwback
Record with a slow back
Beat that you don't wanna turn off

If you're gonna get drunk
If you're gonna stay home
If you're gonna take a ride
Don't take it alone, no
If you're gonna lay around in a T-shirt
Watchin' nothin' on the TV
If you're gonna do anything
Do it with me
Come on, come on
Do it with me
Come on, come on

It don't matter what you wear
Or what you do with your hair
I don't care if it's nothin' at all
If your lips or your hands
Ever need a place to land
I can keep you from climbin' the walls

Girl, you got my number
You don't have to wonder
I'll always pick it up when you call

If you're gonna get drunk
If you're gonna stay home
If you're gonna take a ride
Don't take it alone, no
If you're gonna lay around in a T-shirt
Watchin' nothin' on the TV
If you're gonna do anything
Do it with me
Come on, come on
Do it with me
Come on, come on

If you're gonna get crazy
(Do it with me)
Get down like it's your birthday
(Do it with me)
If you wanna keep it low-key

If you're gonna get drunk
If you're gonna stay home
If you're gonna take a ride
Don't take it alone
If you're gonna lay around in a T-shirt
Watchin' nothin' on the TV
If you're gonna do anything
Do it with me
Come on, come on
Do it with me
Come on, come on
Do it with me
(Come on, come on)
Yeah

(Come on, come on)
(Come on, come on)
(Come on, come on)
(Come on, come on)
(Come on, come on)

Hear You Now

You used to say if I kept dragging my feet one day I would wake up alone
You told me if I wasn't careful I was gonna mess around and hurt someone
I didn't know that it was me you were talking about
Didn't listen to the words falling out of your mouth

Oh, but I can hear you now, hear you now, hear you now
In the middle of the night, I can
Hear you now, clear and loud, hear you now
Like a wheel in my mind
Someday you'll be sorry
Someday when I leave
You'll find out you don't wanna be free, yeah I can
Hear you now, hear you now, hear you now
Now that you ain't talking to me

You used to wake me with a whisper but now the only voice is the pouring rain
And the echo of goodbye just rattles through my mind like a midnight train
Yeah, you warned me that the days and the nights would be cold
You don't have to say I told you so

Oh, 'cause I can hear you now, hear you now, hear you now
In the middle of the night, I can
Hear you now, clear and loud, hear you now
Like a wheel in my mind
Someday you'll be sorry
Someday when I leave
You'll find out you don't wanna be free, yeah I can
Hear you now, hear you now, hear you now
Now that you ain't talking to me no more

You ain't pacing the hardwood floor
You ain't slamming the apartment door
You don't call me and you don't call me yours
Oh, but I can hear you now

Yeah, someday you'll be sorry
Someday when I leave
You'll find out you don't wanna be free, yeah
Hear you now, hear you now, hear you now
I can hear you now, hear you now, hear you now
Now that you ain't talking to me
Now that you ain't talking to me

Now that you ain't talking to me no more
Now that you ain't talking to me no more
Now that you ain't talking to me no more
No more, no more

I hear you now
Now that you ain't talking to me no more
I hear you now
I hear you now
I hear you now
Now that you ain't talking to me no more

I'll Roll

West coast hippie in a pickup truck
With stickers all over the back
Vanity plate that says "Livin' Life"
I bet you love to take it off the map
You seem like a girl who sleeps under the stars
Every single chance you get

Ooh-ooh
Wherever you end up is where you'll be
Ooh-ooh
If you're looking for a little bit of company

I'll roll
I can be your navigator
I'll roll
I'll be on my best behavior
I'll roll
East, west, north to south
I'll roll
Baby, break the good stuff out and
I'll roll

You're the kind of girl that only exists
In a Kerouac paperback dream
There's just enough room in your front seat
For me to drop everything
I just wanna read a couple highway signs
Ain't got no tie-you-down plans

Ooh-ooh
I just wanna burn down a road I ain't ever been down
Ooh-ooh
When the gas in the tank or my welcome runs out

I'll roll
I ain't trying to cramp your style
I'll roll
Give me just a few good miles
I'll roll
I can just fade to black
I'll roll
You can have your blue sky back
I'll roll

Ooh-ooh
Wherever you end up is where you'll be
Ooh-ooh
I'm just looking for a little bit of wild and free
Can I roll?
I'll roll

I'll roll
I can be your navigator
I'll roll
I'll be on my best behavior
I'll roll
East, west, north to south
I'll roll
Baby, break the good stuff out and
I'll roll
I ain't trying to cramp your style
I'll roll
Baby, give me just a few good miles
I'll roll
Then I can just fade to black
I'll roll
You can have your blue sky back
I'll roll
I'll roll

American Style

If you're working for the weekend
Got mud to drive your Jeep in
Your baby's name is inked in
Your heart on your sleeve

If you play a Stratocaster
Your dad's a Baptist pastor
You rock a leather jacket
Then you know what I mean

Yeah, it's Ferris wheels and firecrackers
Red Corvettes and big green tractors
Happy ever after in American style
Rock and roll and peace and love
And breaking in your baseball glove
Ain't ever gonna go out of American style

American style
I got
American style
You got
We're never gonna go out of American style

You got your Friday throw down
And your Sunday slow down
You don't forget your hometown
When you're chasing your dreams

It ain't the shoes, it's how you walk in 'em
Spring in your step and a hole in your denim
Cheap pair of shades and your own kind of rhythm
And that's all you need

Yeah, it's Ferris wheels and firecrackers
Red Corvettes and big green tractors
Happy ever after in American style
Rock and roll and peace and love
And breaking in your baseball glove
Ain't ever gonna go out of American style

American style
She's got
American style
He's got
We're never gonna go out of American style

(Ah) Oh whoa
(Ah) Oh yeah
(Ah) Oh whoa
(Ah)

Yeah, it's Ferris wheels and firecrackers
Red Corvettes and big green tractors
Happy ever after in American style
Rock and roll and peace and love
And breaking in your baseball glove
Ain't ever gonna go out of American style

American style
One time
American style
Two times
We're never gonna go out of American style
Alright

American style
I got
American style
You got
We're never gonna go out of American style

Paint The Grass Green

I don't know what's been going on inside that head of yours
But lately you've been looking out that window more
That gypsy soul inside of you is what I fell in love with
I wonder if it's coming back to haunt me and I'm so afraid that

Maybe there's a star somewhere in another sky
Those California colors are easy on the eyes
If you think the world looks better on that side of the fence
I'll paint the grass green like a Technicolor dream
If our love has faded, babe, I'll brighten up the scene
I'll paint the grass green

They say that if you love someone don't hold 'em back
But I can't quite convince myself I'm cool with that
I'll change the way I kiss you or the way I take my coffee
However big or small, I'll fight for it all

Maybe there's a star somewhere in another sky
Those California colors are easy on the eyes
I'll get down on my knees if you're still up on the fence
I'll paint the grass green like a Technicolor dream
If our love has faded, babe, I'll brighten up the scene
I'll paint the grass green

I'll make the roses red
Give you a gold sunset
Tell me it's not over yet

Maybe there's a star somewhere in another sky
Those California colors are easy on the eyes
I'll get down on my knees if you're still up on the fence
I'll paint the grass green like a Technicolor dream
If our love has faded, babe, I'll brighten up the scene
I'll paint the grass green

If that's what you need
I'll paint the grass green

Some People Do

I know you're hurt, I know it's my fault
But I've kept "I'm sorry" locked in a vault
I know that time just keeps going on
And words by themselves can't right all the wrongs
In a world that's gone crazy, you don't know what's true
Most people don't change, but some people do

Some people quit drinking too much
And some people quit lying
Some people decide to grow up
But it's never good timing
Most wouldn't forgive what I put you through
But I'm here tonight, hoping some people do

Some people say sorry to hear it's okay
But I know it's not so you don't have to say
That you understand 'cause I know you don't
And neither do I, that don't mean that I won't
Try everyday to show you the truth
Most people don't change, but some people do

Some people quit drinking too much
And some people quit lying
Some people decide to grow up
But it's never good timing
Most wouldn't forgive what I put you through
But I'm here tonight, hoping some people do

So whether you kiss me or you close the door
Just know that I'm better than I was before

Some people quit drinking too much
And some people quit lying
Some people decide to grow up
But it's never good timing
Most wouldn't forgive what I put you through
But I'm here tonight, hoping some people do
I'm hoping some people do
