Down Before 03:58
Verse 1: I got demons knocking on my door Telling me I'm heart-broke, and that I'm poor Only ask for a little, but they always back for more Wish things were better, but I know the score Yes I've had much brighter times Cash in my pocket, friend by my side Then I heard that whisper, and it started my slide Must be those demons, those demons of mine Chorus: I've got a one-way ticket down Won't stop till I'm lying in the ground Well I've been down before, I've been down before Down before, I've been down before Verse 2: Show me a better place, wherever that may be Somewhere warm and safe, no thoughts to prey on me Without a second thought, I'll run, yes I'll flee I want it now, immediately Chorus: Bridge: Everything that I see Sits there laughing at me I want something real Something that nobody else can steal Final Chorus: Well I've been down before, I've been down before Down before, I've been down before

Light Up 03:34
Verse 1: I want to light up your life I want to light up your life I'll be your sun in the day Your moon and stars at night I want to light up your life Verse 2: I want to be where you are I want to be where you are Go where you want I'll never be far I want to be where you are Chorus: Like a light on the shore I'll guide you home Never more on your own Like a candle in the night burning hard and bright I want to light up your life Verse 3: I'll cross the mountain pass with you I'll cross the mountain pass with you When the going gets rough, I'll carry you through I'll cross the mountain pass with you Chorus: I want to light up your life

Driving Rain 03:03
Verse 1: Well I left home in the driving rain Looking for someway to kill the pain Well my baby left me on the morning train Now I'm walking in the driving rain Chorus: Well the sky hangs low as I walk outside And the cold wind blows that rain in my eyes Grey clouds are here blocking out the sun 'Cause the sky is dark and the rain comes down now that you're gone Interlude: Verse 2: Well I pawned my shoes for a bottle of booze I thought that was the bottom, till I met you Now when the sky turns from blue to black I'll be in another town not looking back Chorus:

Falling Down 03:26
Verse 1: Now for a time you were mine Didn't last all that long Spent more time than I could spare making you think I didn't care Oh it all went wrong Chorus 1: Well I liked you by my side, and I didn't mind the tears you cried Oh I played around I was high, you brought me low, left me down here on my own Oh falling down Verse 2: Get away a few, try something new Drifting further everyday But no matter what I do, my mind it stays on you Too many times I lost my way Chorus 2: Flying high and flying free but you had different plans for me Left me here on the ground Took myself out on a drunk, thinking about just how far I sunk Oh falling down Bridge: Pictures hanging on the wall Remind me of when I had it all Pictures hanging on the wall Remind me of when, when I had it all FInal Chorus: Well I liked you by my side, and I didn't mind the tears you cried Oh I guess you know, I played around I was high, you brought me low, left me down here on my own Oh falling down Oh falling down

Goodbye 03:42
Verse 1: Goodbye baby, I won't stand in your way No more awkward talks begging you to stay The sun has set on us and that's the way it has to be Couldn't just fool ourselves indefinitely Chorus: So goodbye baby, this is where we part Goodbye baby, time for a brand new start Goodbye baby, swear I'm doing fine Goodbye baby, on down the line Verse 2: So goodbye, it won't be us anymore One ship leaving now, and one on the shore There's many shades of grey, but only one shade of black The die is cast now, there's no turning back Chorus: Bridge: Now there are people I'll remember, people I'll forget And I may forget you someday, but it hasn't happened yet Now looking back and thinking about all that could have been And it brings me down when I think that I'm never going to see you again Chorus:
6.
Not Mine 02:48
Verse 1: It's never enough It's never right But not for you You're always best Chorus: There's many ways to go There's many ways to go You don't understand It's your loss, not mine x2 Verse 2: Don't see it like you Don't think it's great. No better than mine Go change your view Chorus: Bridge: Chorus:
7.
Verse 1: The sunrise greets me at the break of day From the back of my car I watch the twilight fade away Started off with plenty, my pockets are empty now Every dollar and penny, I drank away somehow Made my way out west, there's a boy I had to chase When I finally found him I found I'd been replaced Now I spent too much time hanging around Empty bottles and broken hearts, lonely streets and empty towns Chorus: Making my way back I got a long long way to go Just get me on my feet and point me down the road How'd I ever get so lost oh baby I don't know I got a long long long way to go Verse 2: Guess I did it to myself should have stayed where I belong But I couldn't be that far from you, guess I was wrong But one word from you would have stopped me in my tracks 'Cause my home is in New York, it's time to go back Chorus: Bridge: Making my way back, making my way back, making my way back home x2 Final Chorus: Making my way back I got a long long way to go I've been way out west I've been to Mexico Like an orphan child too far away from home I got a long long long way to go

Mean Old Man 03:24
Chorus: Mean old man, mean old man, and I know why Mean old man, mean old man, and I know why 'Cause your heart and soul are hollow Why don't you lay down and die? Verse 1: You love to say mean rotten things You love to say mean rotten things And you don't care about the pain that it brings Chorus: Verse 2: You walk in staring your creepy stare You walk in staring your creepy stare We just want to escape your creepy lair Chorus: Interlude: Final Chorus: Mean old man, mean old man please go away Mean old man, mean old man please go away Oh what more do I have to say? Just go away
