Track Name: Haze
When I left the house it was a quarter to three
Last I checked the time was when I turned the key
When I turned the key

When I set out tonight to clear my head
Turned on the radio and I didn’t look back
But now the dusk has given way to the haze
And I still think I’ve got a long, long way

When you drive the backroads, you think you know the way
Sometime when you drive, you’re in a strange place
You’re in a strange place

When I set out tonight to clear my head
Turned on the radio and I didn’t look back
But now the dusk has given way to the haze
And I still think I’ve got a long, long way

There are certain details, simple landmarks
You see along the way, no matter where you are
No matter where you are

When I set out tonight to clear my head
Turned on the radio and I didn’t look back
But now the dusk has given way to the haze
And I still think I’ve got a long, long way

Another mile marker, another turn of the dial
One less thing to think about, at least for awhile
At least for a while
Track Name: Hey Sweetheart
Hey there sweetheart, don’t go away
I have got something to say

Do you know just what you are
You’re the prettiest girl in the bar

I bet you hear that all the time
All the boys probably use that line

Don’t go yet, just sit right here
What do you want to drink? I’m getting a beer

I knew a girl once who look like you
But she don’t smile the way you do

There’s something ‘bout your hair, something bout your eyes
That’s why I been watching you all night

I can tell you fancy, I can tell you plain
I bet you’ve heard it all anyways

It’s not like I think that I’m in your league
I just thought id give it a shot before you leave

You been over there so I couldn’t see
Now I notice you’re not wearing a ring

There aint no guys coming up to you
I figure why shouldn’t I be the first to

I know you’re with your friends but you can have a drink
There aint no harm in talkin’ to me

That’s ok, well have a nice night
I’m just tryin’ to be a nice guy

Hey there sweetheart, don’t go away
I have got something to say
Track Name: Someone's Been Sleeping In My Bed
I didn’t know the other night
That I made you cry
You know that I was drunk
I didn’t know what I had done

In fact I cant recall
Anything that happened at all
That’s probably not good
It happens more than it should

I been trying to tell you
Something’s not right
When I wake up after having
One of these nights
Someone’s been sleepin in my bed
I just don’t know who is lying there

Right now I have to believe
Everything you’re telling me
If what you say is true
I apologize to you

But it’s so hard to take
I would never act that way
Are you sure I said
All the things I did

I been trying to tell you
Something’s not right
When I wake up after having
One of these nights
Someone’s been sleepin in my bed
I just don’t know who is lying there

A man can become a stranger to hissself I guess
Where he pisses on the things
he thinks are his

I been trying to tell you
Something’s not right
When I wake up after having
One of these nights
Someone’s been sleepin in my bed
I just don’t know who is lying there
Track Name: Old Habits Get Harder to Break
There was a time when the thought would not have
Crossed my mind
But I knew better than to share what I kept inside

It’s not hard to see how it starts or how it got this way
Old habits just get harder to break

I wouldn’t dare act on such a fleeting whim
So far-fetched I could see the trouble I’m in

It’s not hard to see how it starts or how it got this way
Old habits just get harder to break

The thing is, the day eventually comes
When a simple thought turns into something you’ve done

It’s not hard to see how it starts or how it got this way
Old habits just get harder to break
Track Name: Everything You Said Was True
I sat there, didn’t say a word
I let you have your piece

You didn’t really give me an option
You were going to make your point to me

I don’t have any response to you
Everything you said was true

“You need to examine your life choices”
I think were your exact words

Disgust and pity were in your voice
It was in everything I heard

I don’t have any response to you
Everything you said was true

You’re not saying any thing I haven’t thought
I think about all of this a lot
What is it that you want me to do?
Everything you said is true
Track Name: Sunday Funday
Oh the morning sometimes is sudden
Especially when the night is young
And here you are lying in the dark
Sweating out the damage done

So put up or shut up mister
Don’t keep keeping yourself down
Every time you lose, you have an excuse
But it’s time to turn it around
It’s time to turn it around

So what was it this time?
Did you stumble and say the wrong thing?
Did you have enough and just give up
When you didn’t get the time of day?

So put up or shut up mister
Don’t keep keeping yourself down
Every time you lose, you have an excuse
But it’s time to turn it around
It’s time to turn it around

Pull yourself to the mirror
Look yourself in the eye
You’ll see the man you’ve always been
Give tomorrow a try

So put up or shut up mister
Don’t keep keeping yourself down
Every time you lose, you have an excuse
But it’s time to turn it around
It’s time to turn it around
Track Name: Far Away Places
At night
Sometimes I will drive
Down to Myers’ Lake
With a six-pack at my side

I
Will sit atop my car
Look up at the stars
Think about my life

There
Seems to be no end
To the mess I am in
And the ways I have lied

But in
This moment I pretend
A day will begin
When I no longer hide

And there are far away places
Where no one knows the faces
You wore before you arrived
And there, you can be yourself
Or be someone else
Whoever you like

Tonight
I will make a bet
That I’m going to get
Everything that’s mine

It’s
A promise I will make
A risk that I will take
To get out of here alive

And when
You see me again
You won’t comprehend
What I did to survive

In fact
The next time you see me
The past will only be
A glimmer in your eye

And there are far away places
Where no one knows the faces
You wore before you arrived
And there, you can be yourself
Or be someone else
Whoever you like
