Track Name: What My Baby Wants
What my baby wants my baby she’s gonna get

We’re movin in movin up, movin on with our lives
Breakin our backs to jump the cracks
tryin to make it right
Throw some paint on the wall
move some furniture around
mix our things together
all without makin a sound

What my baby wants, my baby’s gonna get
ill make it right honey i dont want you to sweat

All my life, i’ve been waiting on a girl like you
Keep me dreaming every night
and every single time to keep em coming true
I’m promise, i swear i’ll take it easy on the dope
quit my drinking every night
Honey i’ll come home

What my baby wants, my baby’s gonna get
ill make it right honey i dont want you to sweat
What my baby needs my baby she’s gonna get
this is our home, no regrets

How many times do i have to tell ya
you’re my sweet Cinderella
I dont want to let you go i just wanna let you know

What my baby wants, my baby’s gonna get
ill make it right honey i dont want you to sweat
What my baby needs my baby she’s gonna get
this is our home, no regrets
Track Name: Winnipeg
Winnipeg
Is it faster to Winnipeg or should i go by bus?
Drive my truck or pack a lunch?
Did you see the wind, no you’re weren’t there
I’m six feet tall and livin life without care

But i’ve been known to lie a little
Ive been known to cheat
Come by me you gonna get what you paid for
get what you see just what you need

I’m letting the day go

Demons and me are bound at the seem
There aint no in or out or nothing between
and i’ve got closets overflowing with bones
but i’ll deny the truth to you until te cows come home

With every step i’m forgetting the last
That is i react to each moment as they pass\
With no regrets cuz i dont like to look back
but at the end of evey day i find myself askin

Where did the day go? I’m letting Go

I know you’re dying to come for a ride
come loser now jump inside
you gonna forget that i ever was mean
i’ll be your king, come back and be my queen

Big plans at and for free
I roll em up, cuz nothing looks good on me
And if my intentions remain to be seen
im waiting on the day my talent catch up with my dreams

Im letting the days go
Track Name: Lola
Lola
Oh Lola, baby wont you come on home
Float on down from your place in heaven
shown me that im not alone
if you dont mind stayin, i could use a friend

Oh Lola, honey had i done you wrong
i know i never let ya into my kitchen
but you were in my heart all along
honey i tried, i tried to keep you alive

Now you’re gone but the frame remains
all your memories instilled in pains
climb up the vine for one more kill
come spin your web on my window sill

Oh Lola, honey i still can’t tell
when you were lookin through the wondow at me
could you only see yourself
was our love in vain? Did you see me the same?

Chorus
Track Name: Hold On
HOLD ON
When the world outside is not the one you once knew
Everything keeps on changing except you
And no matter how hard you try
you just can’t find the truth
You go lookin for your roots

Somehow its hard to see whats gained
the sun shines but all you recall is rain
what happens now
with your pleasures replaced by pain
noting left but shame

Hold on
let me walk a mile

Its crazy how eight decades have reduced to a page
more and more tomorrow feels further away
they all say take it day by day
but you’re sick of livin this way

Hold on
let me walk a mile
Track Name: Emily
EMILY
For six weeks I've been on my own
and im finally on my feet
you come around now lookin for a and out
baby that just aint me
I'm not saying, its gonna be easy
the road is harder alone
But right now you’re a fish outta water
im a rolling stone

And there will come a day
when you’re gonna have to face yourself
I aint gonna hang around to see the drought of you’re well
Your starry eyes are gonna die when you realize there’s no one else
and i’ll beg of you to listen please
Dont come back to me
Emily

Since you flew i’ve had too much time
to justify some truths
Like your sweetness is weakness
but my resilience defeats this
mends my heart like glue
I said its hard when you been down so long
i get got up in my blues
but a couple dozen beers will catch my lonely tears

I aint ever seen so clear in all my life
Look into my eyes my tell me why you so surprised
Love is cruel to you the fool who rolls the dice
Im beggin you to listen to me
If its love set me free
Emily

You’re up and down in and out
Leavin me left on the ground
Runnin round wit another man
I cant understand
How treat me like a fool
you tell me tat its cool
taking me for granted
Just like a tool

And there will come a day
when you’re gonna have to face yourself
i aint gonna hang around to see the drought of you’re well
All that shit you put me through
will come back to you from someone else
baby now listen please
Dont come back to me
Emily
