Track Name: My Muse
I stand in the crowd and I watch you go
To you I'm just a faceless little man
But one day soon I'll feel good enough
To talk to you with my own steady hands
And I remember when I was just a little boy
When you came and played in my hometown
And my father said not to look upto you
But without looking up I just feel down

So don't leave me
Cuz I'm ready to show you
My Muse

Don't get me wrong you've got your problems too
Within your hands your demons dwell
You choose the booze to feed your madness
But for you that's the only way you knew
And with feet like me I could never fill your shoes
Or even know which kind of size to buy
When summer leave go falling on your haor
Well I break down and I begin to cry

So don't leave me
Cuz I'm ready to show you
My Muse

But there are so many things
That seem to want to trouble me
But every time well I just stop and stare
And know you're watching over me
Well I don't wanna walk and I don't wanna talk
About these insecurities
Cuz in the end just look at what you've got
And only then will you be free
And only then will you be free

So don't leave me
Cuz I'm ready to show you
My Muse
Track Name: To The Tide
Well all my life I've been chasing sparks
But lately I've been living in the dark
The sound of friends and lovers sweetly fades
And more and more I long for yesterday day
Through sleepless I sit and wait
Wishing away the things I cannot change
Like some sort of lie i motivate
To get up again and fight for yesterday

The sea which I float upon
Is full of empty and sunken boats
The waves beneath me rock me from side to side
As all my worries drift away
To The Tide

For nothing is written nor set in stone
My future lies with the strength within my bones
With each song I her the next one comes
To fill my life with the light of the rising sun

So rise from the ground and seek your rightful
For the King is dead and the people seek your grace
So lead them now with the strength of all you've found
To the promised land where you've always been bound

The sea which I float upon
Is full of empty and sunken boats
The waves beneath me rock me from side to side
As all my worries drift away
To The Tide
Track Name: Smile (For L.A.K)
Smile don't drop your hea to the ground
These are the days to seize
Smile don't let yourself be down
Cuz I know you can turn things around

And I can fly with you
If you would only take my hand
So open up your eyes
Step into the light
Cuz I know you can turn things around

Smile and raise your glass and toast
To those whom you know and love the most
Smile and feel the wind wash over your face
Cuz this time I know you'll do just great


And I can fly with you
If you would only take my hand
So open up your eyes
Step into the light
Cuz I know you can turn things around
Track Name: The River
I was born beside the river
And like the river I've been running since
When summer ends the cold draws thicker
And beneath my head my hands begin to shake
And the lights they shine
Near Christmas time
As I go searching the streets to find my bed
But all the while below my step
My feet they carry the burden of my head

Walk on meet your end
Walk on meet your end

But don't force me down the road alone
And I wonder am I ever getting home

Well I ws born beside the river
And like the river I've been running since
From dusk till dawn my heacy heart
Loses feeling as blood draws from my neck
So tell me God what have I done
To bear this cross which begs my body for death
Lest I regret all my brothers
Then I must dwell within this body of lies


Walk on meet your end
Walk on meet your end

But don't force me down the road alone
And I wonder am I ever getting home
Track Name: Little Wine (feat. Hermitage Green)
I see you're coming back to town
Unpack your things let your hair down
meet your friends go for a drive
Just don't believe that I'll be by your side
I don't expect to hear from you

But I can see how you might think
Considering how much I like to drink
That I'd come knocking on your door
But of all these things apart of me
My insecire personality
Wanr me against your ready lies
Stop teasing me Little Wine

Wah Wah Wah
Stop Teasing me Little Wine

I see you're feeling down
The big bad world's too heavy to feel your way around
So you come back to the home you know
To tell us all about your one woman show
Which had the wolrd all over you
Well I don't expect to hear it from you

While you were gone I ran to find
The only thing to clear my mind
Lay beyond our broken home
And it was in these hours of unsound mind
I begin to feel to realise
That time spent here is time spent through the eyes
Stop teasing me Litltle Wine

It's times like these that I seem to find
The only voice worth my time
Is already by my side
So don't be afriad my child
For what you long for will come in time
So goodbye be safe but don't you cry

Woh Woh Woh
Stop teasing me Little Wine
