Track Name: Texas
“Texas”

Before she boards that plane the wood grain of this old guitar
has been tear-stained

As she goes overseas will she think about you or me?
Are there too many clouds beyond those wings?

Are we both home or is she yours alone?
When she comes back, is it to us both?

Oh Texas
How could we be so reckless with a love like that? We should have known
Oh Texas
Gotta help me bring her back, bring her on back home

An old oak tree, my roots are planted deep
But I’m just as lost as those pines in the east

Like the fields in the west, my heart is desolate
Lonesome for miles, ain’t no one left

Are we both home or is she yours alone?
When she comes back, is it to us both?

Oh Texas
How could we be so reckless with a love like that? We should have known
Oh Texas
Gotta help me bring her back, bring her on back home

Br:
If I was the one to blame I would wrap my heart in cellophane. Send it on an aeroplane to you
Don’t know what your leaving means but it pulls so hard on these damn heart strings
Can you hear the hills and I sing for you?

Oh Texas
How could we be so reckless with a love like that? We should have known
Oh Texas
Gotta help me bring her back, bring her on back home
Track Name: From Afar
“From Afar”

VR
You and me we’re like tequila and whiskey
Either way the clothes come off
But together we’re risky

PRE-CH
This love affair has lasted longer than our favorite bar
This hangover is wearing thin it’s time I love you…

CH
From afar (x3)

VR
Well I’m playing checkers while you’re playing chess
I’m waiting to be kinged
You’ve put me in check

PRE-CH
You’re out there playing games while I just play my guitar
It’s time to put down the pieces and just love you…

CH
From afar (x3)

BR
My mind is torn in two while my heart just collects scars
It’s time to put down the pieces and just love you…

CH
From afar (x til the end)
Track Name: Still Love You
Still Love You

Fields of orange, yellow and red
Sun goes down in the ground and I’m trying to resurrect
You say the fires have died between you and me
But I still feel the embers burning down deep

(But I) Still. Love. You. (x3)
Even though long ago you said no
You said no.

Fields of brown, black and red
All those things you said echo in my head
One grey tombstone lies between you and me
It’s that highway that parted us like the Red Sea

(But I) Still. Love. You. (x3)
Even though long ago you said no…

If I’d had my way / we’d still be on that highway
I’d convince you to stay / Instead of quietly running away
If we ran out of roads / we’d still find our way home
Through the fields of the unknown / instead of being all alone

Fields of green, pink and red
Hope those flowers say everything that needs to be said
All those years have kept us away
But here on this dark we’ll find each other anyway

(But I) Still. Love, You. (xhoweverlong)
Even though long ago you said no when I proposed…
Yeah even though I can only hope you won’t say no
You said no.
Track Name: Sober
“Sober”
Woke up with a hell of a hangover
Feel like I may never be sober
Ain’t blood left in my veins
Just alcohol, I ain’t feelin no pain

Had to start my day off with a beer
Just to get myself back into gear
Met your new girlfriend late last night
Besides being in my place, she’s alright

But I may never be sober again
It’s a bad night but it’ll be a good morning
I may never be sober again
Drink a toast to you and your new girlfriend
Drink my feelings down to the very last drop
I shouldn’t love you but I can’t stop
That’s why I’ll never be sober again

Now I’m feeling like such a fool
Cause we met long before she met you
Don’t know what the hell I was thinking
Not to grab you then, guess I’d been drinking

Had to start my day off with a beer
Just to get myself back into gear
Met your new girlfriend late last night
Besides being in my place, she’s alright

I may never be sober again
It’s a bad night but it’ll be a good morning
I may never be sober again
Drink a toast to you and your new girlfriend
Drink my feelings down to the very last drop
I shouldn’t love you but I can’t stop
Drink that bottle down to the very last drop
That’s why I’ll never be sober again
Track Name: Hey Bartender
“Hey Bartender”

There’s always someone out there you can rely on
They’ll always be there waiting, leaving that light on
Some places I’m a rockstar, some places unknown
Either way there’s always a neon light calling me back home

There’s always someone out there waiting on me
They’ll always be the very last one to leave

I said “Ooooooh” Hey Bartender
Don’t shut us down
Oooooh Hey Bartender
How bout another round?

I’ve been known to fall in love once or twice
It’s kinda hard not to when they serve you and they gotta be nice
Best thing for a heartache anywhere I’ve found
Is a beautiful bartender serving you a shot of crown

There’s always someone out there waiting on me
They’ll always be the very last one to leave

I said “Ooooooh” Hey Bartender
Don’t shut us down
Oooooh Hey Bartender
How bout another round?

I’ve sailed with the captain, I’ve flown with the grey goose
I’ve drank the champagne of beers and I’ve toasted with Veuve
Whether it’s Johnny, Jack or Jim or Mr. Jameson
We’ll be doing a little drinking and a lot of hell raising

There’s always someone out there waiting on me
They’ll always be the very last one to leave

I said “Ooooooh” Hey Bartender
Don’t shut us down
Oooooh Hey Bartender
How bout another round?
(repeat chorus)
