Track Name: Cars
Kickin' back cadillac
Everything is feeling good
Mustang everything
Motor on understood

What do you got
Underneath that hood
Scooped up delicate
Dress is on maybe I should

Say today sting ray
Saturate in me
Gas pipe exit right
Soda pop in flight

Rollin down rumble sound
Look at you what a sight
Dress is on delicate
Scoop me off into the night

Engine queen where the crown
Push me back sundown
Heavy set delicate
Rollin' right into town

What do you got
Underneath that hood
Scooped up delicate
Dress is on maybe I should

Kickin back cadillac
Everything is feeling good
Mustang everything
Motor on understood
Track Name: Higher
Work to the bone shift after shift
Come home to song and get lit
Felt like was drifting through a haze
Every new day brought a brand new phase

Worked on the dream and shut the rest out
Lost track of money let it wander about
Then the break came like the flood and the rain

Let me down from this nest
I enjoy flying, but it's time to rest
Let me down from this nest
I enjoy flying, but it's time to rest

Maybe we gave it all to fast
Remember the dream like it was yesterday
Come and go as it fades and I say

We gave it our all and we're higher
Higher than I want to be
We gave it our all and we're higher
Higher than I thought I'd be

And holding on for dear life
Tell me when it's down
Holding on for dear life
But damn it sure is fun
Holding on this is life

Let me down from this nest
I enjoy flying, but it's time to rest
Let me down from this nest
I enjoy flying, but it's time to rest
Track Name: Saint Vrain
The sidewalks are dust
And cracked like old skin
The houses abandoned
I could just walk in
The memories remain
In those that have left
Two years from flooding
The scars still show
Two years form flooding
Our memories still know

The money’s used up
The kids can’t play ball
The bases are all covered
They can’t run them at all

The shrubs of the river
Fill up the yards
Chain links and posts
Still stand guard
The sunshine deceives me
This place is so calm
Two years from flooding
Some have moved on
Two years from flooding
The ghosts are still strong

This town sits still
On the green grassy hills
Two years and counting
I remember the rain
Three years and counting
They’ll remember the rain
From the flood of Saint Vrain

Are there lesson in struggle
Lessons in change
Do the waters that move me
Wash me away
Im left in sadness
With the sights that remain
But the beauty of water
Is it washes you clean
The beauty of water
It washes me clean

The money’s used up
The kids can’t play ball
The bases are all covered
They can’t run them at all

But the beauty of water
It washes us clean
The Beauty of water
It washes away clean
Track Name: Ferris Wheel
Ohhhhhh Uuuuuuuu
How many people all at once
Can scream in my ear?
Im tired of the emails, the blog posts
And the people telling me where to steer.

I feel like I’m riding the ferris wheel
But the operator left a long time ago
He don’t care how I feel

Just a little nauseous from the ride
A little paralyzed
But I’ve got a view
I’ve got a view

How many people out there
Think they know what they’re trying to say
Are they really trying to giveth
Or taketh away

I just don’t want to stay
The ride is giving this sway
Back and forth

Just a little nauseous from the ride
A little paralyzed
But I’ve got a view
I’ve got a view

I want to run and close the store
I want to empty, Please no more
I want to let it all float away

I’m riding the ferris wheel
The operator is not back
He don’t care how I feel

Just a little nauseous from the ride
A little paralyzed
But I’ve got a view
I’ve got a view
But I’ve got a view
I’ve got a view
Track Name: Saturated In Sunshine (Acoustic Version)
Looking up around at the whole world
Maybe things will be the way they should
I can feel your voice and your touch on my neck
Never thought we'd say goodbye

From the beach to the boat to the buoy
I loved every minute that the time would give
From the porch to the peace to the pool
We lived every minute that we could

Now I'm saturated in sunshine
But the blues is keeping me back
Now I'm saturated in sunshine
And I just need you back again with me

Never thought we'd say goodbye
All the things that you wanted were here
But I was trapped and we were trapped alone in paradise
There was nothing that you could say

From the beach to the boat to the buoy
I just wanted you by my side
From the peace to the porch to the pool
I couldn't even say we didn't try

Now I'm saturated in sunshine
But the blues is keeping me back
Now I'm saturated in sunshine
And I just need you back again with me

I want you back, I want you back
But you can never come back, no
I want you back, I want you back
But you can never come back
And like the waves on the beach we keep turning
Turning over and over again

Now I'm saturated in sunshine
But the blues is keeping me back
Now I'm saturated in sunshine
And I just need you back, again with me

Again with me (Back, back, back, back)
Again with me (Back, back, back, back)
Again with me (Back, back, back, back)
Again with me
Track Name: Shenandoah
I drink from your waters
Like I drink corn liquor and hops
When the barley wine is tempting me
You fade from my thoughts
Pull me from the bottom
Hold me from despair
Your a loving caring mother
I’m so lucky for the care

Shenandoah sing to me
Shenandoah heal me

Through the winding of your valleys
And the whistling of your wind
I ride your gentle overture
I slide to the end
Your mountaintops are bounty
Your leaves a golden chest
I long for you to gather me
Hold me to your breast

Shenandoah sing to me
Shenandoah heal me

Your seasons are my story
They have helped me through the years
When the leaves have all fallen
I am left with my fears

Your bluebells tell my story
My seasons have all passed
My future is calling
If only I can last

Shenandoah sing to me
Shenandoah heal me
Shenandoah sing to me
Shenandoah rescue me
Track Name: Roll Away The Day
I know a girl by her eyes
She smiles outward all the time
Showed me a summer day
And all troubles went away

Roll away the day now
I say roll away the day
Roll away the day now
I say roll away the day

Water run down her back
Embrace her with all I have
Dancing around the room
Our laughter we both consume

Roll away the day now
I say roll away the day
Roll away the day now
I say roll away the day

Lost in my memory
I faintly remember thee
Soft touch and open gaze
Oh how did I love your ways

Roll away the day now
I say roll away the day
Roll away the day now
I say roll away the day
