Track Name: headcase
the hustle on the street is wearing out your feet,
lay your tired bones next to mine
you never knew my name but i saw you play at the p and h cafe, and your voice took me to a higher place

amy's so sweet with her soft, angelic face
my blood starts pumping when she's thumping on the double bass

i follow along to all of your songs,
every melody and every word
you're lighting up the screens of every household with a t.v. and now every boy's heart will skip a beat like mine does when they see

amy's so sweet with her soft, angelic face
my blood starts pumping when she's thumping on the double bass
when she's looking at me i feel a little out of place
amy's so sweet and i am just a headcase

look at me now i'm a headcase
oh amy, look at me now i'm a headcase
oh amy, look at me now i'm a headcase
Track Name: bang me up
there's no light at the end, no the tunnel goes on with you
here i go driving again with a disoriented view
i don't understand what it is about you
all i know is if there's an end to this road, i wanna be the one

you bang me up alright, dancing with the devil in the yellow moonlight
you bang me up alright, you were cutting me loose but i wanna hang tight

i don't even need to know the facts, or a history review
how can i just relax when i got everything to lose
i miss the touch of your hand and when you kiss me too
all i know is if you let me go, i won't see the sun
i wanna be the one

you bang me up alright, dancing with the devil in the yellow moonlight
you bang me up alright, you were cutting me loose but i wanna hang tight

i know you're gonna leave and i can't say no
this is how it's gonna be and i know we'll be okay
Track Name: never die slow
i came kicking out the womb, momma always said that i was wild
raising hell as a child, getting caught cheating, stealing and lying

gonna put it in gear and give it some gas
it's hard to see clear through the cracks in the glass
just another memory that's a part of my past
never die slow cause i live too fast

we found trouble all the time, on the cobble stones of the riverbanks
getting high and pulling pranks, they say when you're young you're not afraid of dying

on that night we went down to see those delta boys pick guitar
i was falling off the bar, and seeing double behind the wheel while driving

gonna put it in gear and give it some gas
never saw it coming through the cracks in the glass
just another night but it was my last
never die slow cause i live too fast
Track Name: younger days
just keep on living, you know a flame feeds off of the wind
flying high all the years gone by, wishing you could start again
there's nothing wrong with reflection on other people's lives you've touched
you live long and you love strong and the rest don't matter much

sometimes i wanna retrace how i ended up in this place,
we all go through a phase where we long for younger days

the hands keep on moving and the eyes witness change
just an old soul with a heart of gold, lines and a touch of grey
don't wanna say goodbye, no i don't wanna close the door
i know at the end of the show i'm gonna leave wanting more

yeah you got it right when you said the body wears down but the spirit stays strong
thinking you're that kid again won't get you back there anytime soon, believe me i've been there too
