Track Name: On The Money
When you feel the weight of the world on your shoulders .
And it turns its back on you and leaves you colder.
And your not what you should do.
And you don't know who to turn to.

Let me be your safety net when your falling.
Falling.
And run to me when you're upset , and you're calling.
Keep calling.
When it comes to cheering you up with something funny,
Well, I am right on the money .

When you home alone at night empty handed.
Cause everyone's avoiding you like you've been branded.
With a tattooed cross bones and skull.
Like you were some demon from hell.

Let me be your safety net when your falling.
Falling.
And run to me when you're upset , and you're calling.
Keep calling.
When it comes to cheering you up with something funny,
Well, I am right on the money .

We've been through a lot of situations .
Bad luck and miscalculations .
So when you're feeling down.
Just call me up and I'll some around .

When your mother calls you up to give a lecture .
And you've just lost your job due to slanderous conjecture .
Don't you let it get neurotic .
Cause giving up at your age is idiotic .

Let me be your safety net when your falling.
Falling.
And run to me when you're upset , and you're calling.
Keep calling.
When it comes to cheering you up with something funny,
Well, I'm right on the money .
I'm right on the money .
Track Name: Something Better Than This
You thought, that I thought .
I knew where you were heading.
But I was hanging on loosely when you tightened the line.
I slipped, when you slipped ,
From my reach like a snake that was shedding.
Like old skin , I was cast off,
And left behind.
I wasn't thinking forever .
No eternal bliss.
I never wanted a contract sealed with a kiss.

But, I was hoping for something better than this .
And I was hoping for something better than this .

I stayed , where I thought you stayed .
But I had different directions .
I got stranded in some abandoned back yard.
And I played , the way you played.
But I had no luck or connections .
I got nothing but jokers and all the bad cards .
Cupid shot all his arrows.
Pointed at us .
But I guess he missed.
Now we're forever crossed off of his list .

But I was hoping for something better than this .
And I was hoping for something better than this .

Once burned, twice shy .
I let sleeping dogs lie ,
Let them bark at the moon.
But don't worry, I'll get by.
You won't see me cry.
I can rise from the ruins .

You took, what I took,
To be a small confession .
And let it twist in the wind like some long term goal .
But I know , that you know .
I couldn't make that concession.
I could never give up what I never stole .
Some get sentenced to life,
Some get a slap on the wrist .
I guess life is a gamble .
It's hit or miss.

But I was hoping for something better than this .
And I was hoping for something better than this .
I was hoping for something better than this .
Track Name: Love Is Hard Work
I’ve been trapped in the mountains in the cold and the snow,
Ran from the lava of a volcano.
I’ve been stranded in the desert under a searing sun.
But being in love’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done.

I’ve done hard labor and I’ve served my time.
Worked down in a deep dark mine.
Breathing the dust of the coal left me with just one lung.
But being in love is the hardest work I’ve ever done.

Being in love was something new.
I learned a few things before I was through .
Like love is hard work,
It’s not always fun.
It’s the hardest thing that I’ve ever done.

I slipped out back when I couldn’t make bail.
Made myself scarce with the law on my tail.
For fifty days through fifty states,
I was on the run.
Still, being in love’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done,

My Daddy’s last words were “don’t be a fool”.
This aint something that you’re gonna learn in school.
I’ve got one last thing that I am going to share with you.
Son, love’s the hardest thing that you’ll ever do.

They said that you can pay up your debts, or you can go to jail.
It’s cash on the spot,
No check in the mail.
I said , are there any other choices?
And they said, none.
Still, being in love’ s the hardest thing that I’ve ever done.

Yeah , I cheated on the one that I left behind.
Best damn love I'll probably ever find.
I feel the weight of the guilt,
And it feels like a ton.

Yes, being in love’s the hardest thing that I’ve ever done.
Being in love’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done.
Being in love is the hardest thing that I’ve ever done.
Track Name: Getting Hurt Is Nothing New
You can fake it ,
And you can pretend,
That his love for you will never end .
He has shown you one too many signs
That he’s looking for a better time .

Casualty Insurance ,
Fortified endurance
Won’t keep it from happening to you .
So join the human race ,
Getting hurt is nothing new.

You were good at making others cry.
While your dormant tear ducts
Stayed so dry .
So it must have been a big surprise.
To catch yourself rubbing those teary eyes.

Casualty insurance ,
Fortified endurance,
Won’t keepit from happening to you.
So join the human race.
Getting hurt is nothing new.


Maybe you will understand ,
Why I wasn’s smiling when you left me .
Maybe you will understand ,
Why the things you thought were cute ,
Upset me.
Now don’t forget me.

Casualty insurance
Fortified endurance ,
Won’t keep it from happening to you .
So join the human race .
Cause getting hurt is nothing new.
Getting hurt is nothing new.
Track Name: Four Blocks Down
So I didn’t always buy you red roses.
My intentions were as good as gold.
So I didn’t part the sea like Moses
I warmed you up when you’ were cold.
So a few lousy rules were broken
So a few mistakes were made.
So I wasn’t always very well spoken.
I got by on a passing grade .

When you decide that you want me back some day
Well hey...........
I’m only four blocks down across the street and two doors away.
I ‘m only four blocks down across the street and two doors away .

So I sometimes forgot your birthday .
So, sometimes I slipped away.
So I didn’t always celebrate Earth Day
I’m not plastic to be thrown away .
I swear to you that my heart is breaking,
I told fibs, but I never lied.
You can tell that I’m not faking .
I’ve got a bucket of tears that I've cried.

When you decide that you want me back some day.
Welll , hey ,........
I’m only four blocks down across the street and two doors away .
I’m only four blocks down across the street and two doors away

There’s no dayl without the sun .
No stars without a Galaxy.
Everybody’s got to want to have someone
So, how come you don’t want me ?

When you decide that you want me back some day
I’m only four blocks down across the street and two doors away.
I ‘m only four blocks down across the street and two doors away .
I’m only four blocks down across the street and two doors away .
Track Name: The Trains Don't Run To Nashville Anymore
You can get to Nashville by car , or bus or plane .
But you can’t cross the Cumberland, arriving there by train .
The station’s now a hotel, with some fancy stores.
Cause the trains don’t run to Nashville anymore.

The trains don’t run to Nashville anymore
You can’t hear their whistle blowing, or their engine’s roar .
There are guitar pickers, fiddlers and hungry troubadours.
But the trains don’t run to Nashville anymore

Lots of folks migrate from that Northern snow and cold.
Trying to reinvent themselves before they get too old,
But soon they find they’re only doing what they did before.
And the trains don’t run to Nashville anymore.

The trains don’t run to Nashville anymore
You can’t hear their whistle blowing, or their engine’s roar .
There are guitar pickers, fiddlers and hungry troubadours.
But the trains don’t run to Nashville anymore

Now there are changes for the good
That we’re all glad we’ve seen.
Antiquated attitudes , beliefs that seemed extreme
No more colored drinking fountains , or separate back doors.
But the trains don’t run through Nashville anymore

The trains don’t run to Nashville anymore
You can’t hear their whistle blowing, or their engine’s roar .
There are guitar pickers, fiddlers and hungry troubadours.
But the trains don’t run to Nashville anymore

The trains don’t run to Nashville anymore
You can’t hear their whistle blowing, or their engine’s roar .
There are guitar pickers, fiddlers and hungry troubadours.
But the trains don’t run to Nashville anymore

The masses rode those trains across this great country of ours.
Now it’s individuals , on highways in their cars.
Our dependence on foreign oil makes common sense implore
Why can’t the trains run to Nashville anymore ?

The trains don’t run to Nashville anymore.
You can’t hear that whistle blow or that engine roar.
There are guitar pickers , fiddlers , and hungry troubadours.
But the trains don’t run to Nashville anymore.
No , the trains don’t run to Nashville , anymore.
