Track Name: Lucky Charm
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
Track Name: A New Pair Of Shoes
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
Track Name: Come Rain Come Shine
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
Track Name: Right Beside Me
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
Track Name: Everybody's Sneaking Around
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
Track Name: The Journey
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
Track Name: Hit The Ground
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
Track Name: The Reason Why
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
Track Name: Half Your Love Is Fine
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
Track Name: Can't Break The Rules / Hole In My Chest
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
Track Name: Only Dylan Would Know
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
