Track Name: Woman
maybe I could be a better man, baby I can try real hard
there's nothing you can say that can drive me away, there's no way you will go that far
now hold me woman, hold me woman
we're taking this shit to the end.

woman you are out of your mind
woman you are out of your damn mind
you'll never be lonely, you'll never be lonely

now you found out the hard way that your body will soon be gone
but your soul remains and your spirits are high so climb back up here with me
and hold me woman, hold me woman
we're taking this shit to the end

woman you are out of your mind
woman you are out of your damn mind
you'll never be lonely, you'll never be lonely

so baby reconsider, mama reconsider , reconsider me...
Track Name: Long Time Coming
friend of a friend, is where it began
meeting by chance, haphazard romance

her smile was like sweet wine, he'd get drunk on her laugh
the hangover was different this time, it was an image he had
in the back of his mind, that slipped to his heart
never felt sicker, then when they would part

baby this ones forever, don't tell us never
its a game we can't play, we'll play anyway, we'll play anyway

baby this ones forever, It's been a long time coming
so let's play, everyday...

she's getting that feeling again, but she won't tell you my friend
this love is for better days, she's sad when he goes away
they met at a time, when their hands were tied
but their heart strings got tangled, and soon intertwined
then came the summer, when the world disappeared
two people falling in love, and the only sound you could hear
was them singing.....

baby this ones forever, It's been a long time coming
so let's play, everyday...
Track Name: Outta My Head
hug and a kiss for me, good bye baby, baby good bye
now your on that train, waving out the window, baby good bye, baby good bye
so my head hangs low, and my heart, is the color blue

think I'm going out of my head
must be going out of my mind
hurry baby I'm running out of time

seemed like a good thing back then
but sitting here without you, think I'm going outta my head

got that call today, you said you made it, and you got there safe
a couple of weeks gone by, I'm staring at the phone, I want it to ring, I want it to ring
six months have come and gone, and darlin, I haven't heard a thing

think I'm going out of my head
must be going out of my mind
hurry baby I'm running out of time
save me baby tonight
save me baby tonight
Track Name: Colors
you've got a foolish heart and a foolish mind, now your money's spent and your money's gone
rock bottom baby is the way you roll, you've got no defense for your self destruction
nothing feels right and the days are long, but your crying still and there's nothing wrong
all you want is reasons for all these messed up feelings, you got to keep um in side, but baby don't hide

your colors, let um shine through
your like and empty canvas baby, I want to paint you
you know I'll paint you crazy, cause I'm crazy too, mostly crazy about you

now if things aren't better in a week or two, you said you'd pack it in, said your days are through
your talking to yourself but I can here you out loud, babe you've got trouble, we got to fix it right now
nothings easy, well it ain't supposed to be, take a look at yourself, tell me what do you see

can you see your colors, let um shine through
your like and empty canvas baby, I want to paint you
you know I'll paint you crazy, cause I'm crazy too, mostly crazy about you
Track Name: Winters
woke up late this morning, felt so good to finally feel, like I should feel
cause I grow cold, I hate what my heart does, i'm losing blood
winters in maine run through my veins

when your not around, your not around
i'm half a man, when your not around

i'm helpless and blue without you, I can't get off of this couch
I scream out loud, it falls on def ears, and it becomes clear
that i'm growing cold, I hate what my heart does, i'm losing blood
winters in maine run through my veins

when your not around, your not around
i'm half a man, when your not around

the weight of the world is on me, this world is heavier when vile
and all of the while, i'm missing your smile, and it becomes clear
that i'm growing cold, I hate what my heart does, i'm losing blood
winters in maine run through my veins

when your not around, your not around
i'm half a man, when your not around
i'm half a man, i'm half a man...
Track Name: Look for Me
bleed like you bleed, don't let me change you
if your taking your time, well i'm taking mine too
your down and pennyless, what you got to lose
the love for your sons, mary and jesus couldn't save you

mamma, look for me
mamma, look for me
mamma, look for me
on those crowded streets up above us
you might bump into my forgiveness
mamma, look for me

your blue skies went gray, the colors you knew were fading
much like your heart, breaking from missing your family
it just ain't working out, no it never did
so you head down to the lakes, its time to medicate
your going to get some good shit to put you out of your misery

mamma, look for me
mamma, look for me
mamma, look for me
on those crowded streets up above us
you might bump into my forgiveness
mamma, look for oh oh..

look for, bleed like you bleed don't let me chang you
Track Name: Attack of the Hand
Goose Island on a summer night, gives me a feeling that I can't explain
but I'll take you there if you can pull a sane

Come on boys load em up, grab your stuff and head for the truck
The sun is rising over Copano Bay bridge
This is living, hanging with my pops
This is living, fishing non stop
This is living, where have those days gone

Waking up with the sun on your face, like your in some kind of magical place
Over my shoulder my dad's standing there, smile on his face, wind blowing through his long hair
He whooped up breakfast on that electric griddle, spatula under his beard like he was playing a fiddle
I approach the table with and ear to ear grin, its another episode of Attack of the Hand
The Whole family's laughing just as loud as they can, Dad was pretty funny for a hard working man

Come on boys load em up, grab your stuff and head for the truck
We'll get some oysters and some blue crabs cause supper is near
This is living, hanging with my pops
This is living, fishing non stop
This is living, where have those days gone

We got some oysters and some blue crabs too, two keeper reds and a flounder to boot
I have a feeling this will be a mighty fine meal
Little sister has a god given talent, for picking a blue crab clean in under a minute
She picks em like that Gulf of Mexico was going dry

Come on boys load em up, grab your stuff and head for the truck
We'll sane some bait and get that good spot down at the peer
This is living, hanging with my pops
This is living, fishing non stop
This is living, where have those days gone

This is living, hanging with my bros
This is living, no body knows
This is living, where have those days gone
Track Name: Ride it Out
california was calling my name, the sound of her voice and yours are the same
you threw your arms up and went to cry, so far away now tell me why
I made my way on down to houston, said my goodbyes now whats done is done

feels like california ain't working right now
but I can hear him saying boy don't throw in that towel
and all I ever wanted was to make that man proud
so I guess i'll ride this one out

concrete texas is where i'm from, those rolling hills I still call home
here comes heartbreak hard and fast, hoping the feeling doesn't last

feels like california ain't working right now
but I can hear him saying boy don't throw in that towel
and all I ever wanted was to make that man proud
so I guess i'll ride this one out

feels like california ain't working right now
but I can hear him saying boy don't throw in that towel
and all I ever wanted was to make that man proud
so I guess i'll ride this one out
