Lucky Charm 03:33
Lucky Charm I don't run from black cats any more There's no horseshoe hanging on my door I don't need to wish on shooting stars Or hope life deals me the winning cards I got the odds all on my side so I can't lose And I'll tell you why 'Cause you're a lucky charm My lucky charm You keep me from harm My lucky charm We got dreams and dates with destiny And we'll share them as a family Head west into that golden sun And I won't worry none 'Cause you're a lucky charm My lucky charm You keep me from harm My lucky charm Well let's drink to the world we knew Then leave it all behind Today is gone and come the dawn Tomorrow's our's, tomorrow's our's to find Now is the time You're my lucky charm My lucky charm You keep me from harm My lucky charm It’s what you are My lucky charm You keep me from harm And I’m gonna be with you Till the end of my time
2.
A New Pair Of Shoes You never gave me nothing There's nothing here to lose So I bought myself something I got a new pair of shoes, yeah A brand new pair of shoes To walk away from you, hey You're still stumbling blindly Down darkened avenues But all of that's behind me I got a new pair of shoes, yeah A brand new pair of shoes To walk away from you, hey The world is out there waiting So how can I refuse? There's no more hesitating I got a new pair of shoes, yeah A brand new pair of shoes To walk away from you I'll say goodbye, then get on Then get on with my life without you Here I go I'll pour myself a cold one To celebrate the news So stay here with my old ones I got a new pair of shoes, yeah A brand new pair of shoes To walk away from you Watch me walking away Watch me walking Watch me walking away Watch me walking away from you Walking away from you
3.
Come Rain Come Shine I live my life like a loaded gun That’s always shooting at the sun But when it goes I curse the cold outside My Mamma said that I was born On a bar room floor in a thunderstorm And ever since I’ve never been satisfied Till my dark clouds arrive Come rain, come shine Well I try to build my dreams on solid ground Come rain, come shine I’m just waiting for the wall to tumble down You give me peace I’ll ask ’what for?’ Cause once there’s peace the next thing’s war My crazy thoughts would make an angel swear I don’t need a prayer Come rain, come shine Well I try to build my dreams on solid ground Come rain, come shine I’m just waiting for the wall to tumble down Wish that I could turn it all around If I could just see blue skies See the world through new eyes Turn bad lows to good highs Come rain, come shine I will always build my dreams on solid ground Come rain, come shine I’m just waiting for the wall to tumble down Wish I could turn this whole damn thing around Before i see my walls come tumbling down
4.
Right Beside Me I just took life for granted Till your plane landed In my back yard We waited till midnight Flew in the moonlight And caught falling stars Now everything's in sight When you're right beside me Take me through the mirror Let's swim in a river Made out of glass It doesn't matter how much we shine Walking down a red carpet's fine But all these flash bulbs fade really fast And everything's in sight When you're right beside me Right beside me When you're right beside me Right beside me All day and all night You're my guiding light Everything's in sight now When you're right beside me Everything’s alright When you're right beside me Right beside me Everything’s alright now When you're right beside me
5.
Everybody’s Sneaking Around I don’t know what’s going on ‘Cause I get followed all day long My shrink he said, it’s in my head But I can tell when something’s wrong Everybody’s sneaking around Everybody’s sneaking around Everybody’s peeking Everybody’s creeping Everybody’s sneaking around Someone’s bugging all my calls There’s noises coming from my walls At night I fear I’m gonna hear Foreign voices in my hall Everybody’s sneaking around Everybody’s sneaking around Everybody’s peeking Even when I’m sleeping Everybody’s sneaking around You may say I’m paranoid But everyone wants us destroyed It’s all true look and see Just turn on your TV Everybody’s sneaking Everybody’s freaking out Everybody’s peeking, creeping, sneaking, freaking Oh, what about you

The Journey 02:55
The Journey My shoes are worn and the soles are thin The leather's torn and rain gets in My feet are sore, still I won't complain 'Cause there's something more just beyond the pain And the journey's long but I don't care It's the going on, not the getting there I'm growing older but I'm young inside The way I roll here leaves me satisfied Though some days time is like a tangled web What was left behind is now up ahead And the journey's long but I don't care It's the going on, not the getting there There's no destination There's no end in sight So I'll just enjoy the ride The lives we live and the moves we make The love we give and the steps we take When it's all uphill that's what pulls you through And there ain't no pill can do that for you The journey's long but I don't care It's the going on, not the getting there It's the going on, not the getting there It's the going on, not the getting there
7.
Hit The Ground Once they walked in your footsteps That phoney army of friends You had your fifteen minutes baby And now it's ready to end Oh, falling ain't easy So, better brace yourself We know, that it's a long way down It's gonna hurt when you hit the ground How does it feel to be someone Who lost it all in a flash? Soon you'll be back where you started baby To rule your kingdom of trash Oh, falling ain't easy So, better brace yourself Although no one will hear a sound It's gonna hurt when you hit the ground Ooh, I wanna see your face Ooh, I wanna laugh a while Ooh, I wanna steal your smile Oh, falling ain't easy So, better brace yourself Below, the wolves will all gather round it's gonna hurt when you hit the ground
8.
The Reason Why I'm just trying to do some good Telling these stories from my open book I'd rather be the guy who makes a stand Than turn my back and not give a damn You'll always find me on a one-way track I never waste time on looking back And yeah, I know there's been a few wrong turns But how else do you learn? Oh oh oh yeah And that's the reason why Oh oh oh yeah I can still hold my head up high Oh oh oh yeah And that's the reason why Oh oh oh yeah Rather burn out than live a lie I love the start of a brand new day Guess maybe I'm just made that way I'll take luck if it's at my door But it's not something I go looking for And I could bullshit but what's the use The world don't need another lame excuse If I'm wrong I'll hold up my hand It's made me what I am Oh oh oh yeah And that's the reason why Oh oh oh yeah I can still hold my head up high Oh oh oh yeah And that's the reason why Oh oh oh yeah Rather burn out than live a lie It’s better to die on your feet Than live on your knees Oh oh oh yeah And that's the reason why Oh oh oh yeah I can still hold my head up high Oh oh oh yeah And that's the reason why Oh oh oh yeah Rather burn out than live a lie

Half Your Love Is Fine Half your love is fine Half your love is fine Don't need to take up all your time Half your love is fine I don't need a dollar I got fifty cents That's enough for me to be content Half your love is fine Half your love is fine I ain't always first in line Half your love is fine I can bring you candy Maybe bring some flowers I don't mind just waiting round for hours Here you come, there you go Where you stop no one knows Half your love is good Half your love is good There's other hands beneath your hood Half your love is good Baby I ain't jealous Everything's alright I'm still with you every second night Here you come, there you go Where you stop no one knows Sing your song, do your dance Life with you's a game of chance Half your love is fine Here you come, there you go Where you stop no one knows Sing your song, do your dance Life with you's a game of chance Half your love is fine

Can't Break The Rules / Hole In My Chest Don't believe in authority Won't listen when it's talking to me I just turn up the radio Can't break the rules if I don't know Can't break the rules if I don't know I hide my clocks underneath the floor Of an abandoned antique store And though the time goes by real slow Can't break the rules if I don't know Can't break the rules if I don't know Got my own way of coming through Never learned what I shouldn't do The law says stop but I hear go Can't break the rules if I don't know Can't break the rules if I don't know I cut a hole deep into my chest Now I'm sitting waiting on death I'll just ignore him when he shows Can't break the rules if I don't know Can't break the rules if I don't know Hole in my chest I'm gonna beat death Hole in my chest I'm gonna cheat death

Only Dylan Would Know I'm tired of playing These gigs that aren't paying Everyone wants one for free All the same places With all the same faces And none of them listening to me So I close my eyes Take on the disguise Of the man who's the star of my show I ask him life's questions He gives me directions And tells me which way I should go Why's that so? Only Dylan would know He took me free wheelin' Down the highway of healing And brought me back home just in time Yeah, I loved his blondes Oh their mercy was gone But desire ran out of their minds I was saved from the flood By those tracks stained with blood But the train coming down them was slow Why's that so? Only Dylan would know Only Dylan would know Only Dylan would know
