Track Name: The World's Mine
Last year this time
November, you remember
Cross court, across time
Attitude, the whole world could be mine

Time flies

Thick blood, hot steam,
Life choices, still hearing voices
Crossed arms, crossed lines
Latitude, compressing the world's time

I shined
Fine time

Now we're back in the season
I got my own reasons
Still got some demons
But I just keep on believin'
It's a fine time, let the sun shine in my eyes
The world's mine

Right here, right now
Decision, moment collision
Cross words, cross rhymes
Attributes, just read between my lines

Sign of the times
Fine time

Now we're back in the season
I got my own reasons
Still got some demons
But I just keep on believin'
It's a fine time, let the sun shine in my eyes
The world's mine

Heaven, heaven's light
Let the sun shine

Now we're back in the season
I got my own reasons
Still got some demons
But I just keep on believin'
There's a reason
For every season
So I just keep on
I just keep on believen'
It's a fine time, let the sun shine in my eyes

We're back in the season
I got my own reasons
Still got some demons
But I just keep on believin'
What I'm meanin'
Might be deceivin'
You don't see the reason
But I just keep on believin'
It's a fine time, let the sun shine in my eyes
The world's mine
Track Name: Rock Star
CHORUS
12 bars, guitars
Act like a star
Sing some songs, and make ya cry
Bad ass, no class
Sit on my ass
Rockstar shining bright tonight

Every song I write is true
Every song I write is for you

CHORUS

Everything I sing is for you
I'd never lie, babe you know it's true

CHORUS

Everything I do, I do for you
Every song I write is for you
And you, and you, and you

12 bars, guitars act like a star...
12 bars, guitars act like a star...


CHORUS
Track Name: Addicted
I, I, I, I'm addicted... (2xs)

One time
One taste
One instance (One time, one taste is all it takes. Just one)
Just one
Breach of resistance

I, I, I, I'm addicted... (2xs)

You're in my head
You stay in my head
I shouldn't admit
How much I like it
You're in my head
Always in my head
I shouldn't admit
How much I want it

I'm addicted
I, I, I, I'm addicted......

One word
One voice lingers
Just one
Pull of the trigger

I, I, I, I'm addicted... (2xs)

You're in my head...

I'm addicted

You're in my head...

You're in my head
In my blood, til I'm dead
I shouldn't admit
How I much want it
You're in my head
Always in my head
I shouldn't admit
I shouldn't want it

I'm addicted
I'm addicted
I'm addicted
Track Name: Can't Hear You
It's late
I'm feelin girlie
Let's drink
Til it gets early
My head keeps telling me it's right

It's time
To hit the dance floor
I, I
Couldn't want you more
Do you think it could be tonight

Oh no, no
I can't hear you
It's too loud in here
I can't hear you
You're drowning out, but I want/need to
Know if tonight is the night

Weird vibe
I need cover
But I'm
Such a bad bluffer
And I can't read you in this light

Last chance
To make the big move
Last dance
I gotta know if you
If you think it could be tonight

Oh no, no, I can't hear you...

Cause I....want to go home soon
Do you want to go home with me too?
Do.......... you?


Oh no, no, I can't hear you...
Track Name: Sugar
He already knows
At least he thinks so
He's been known for quick scores
So he puts on his best show

He brings a free drink and big smile
Chattin' it up then after a while he says

Give me sugar
I want you sugar
Give me sugar
I dont think so
Give me sugar
Come give me sugar
Give me sugar
I dont think so
But thanks for free drinks

He's not ready for no
And so he sings something soft & slow
He knows he sings like a bird
It always works like a yo-yo

When she's out the end in a deep spin
He sings a little tug on her heart string to pull her in

Give me sugar...

He never had a chance
Too bad for his romance
It won't help this time that he's so handsome
You know he's full of shit
And if I do admit
I like toying with him just a bit
I don't think I'll tell him anything


Give me sugar...
Track Name: Serious
So I thought, so I thought that I used to be smart
So I thought, so I thought, so I thought, I thought

But now I know, now I know, now I know I was wrong
I was wrong, so wrong about what I thought

I'm disinclined to talk about my state of mind
But I can't think straight

I'm not making a joke
Though that's quite unusual
You know I joke
About everything
But not this time
I'm serious....
I'm not making a joke...
I can't think straight

Everyday, everyday is a struggle for me
Hold my thoughts, hold my tongue, everyday, everyday

I crossed the line, crossed boundaries of my mind
And now I can't think straight

I'm not making a joke...

It all seemed so simple
At the alter of my the temple
Taking offerings, offerings, now I'm faltering
False gods always crumble
And here I am a pile of rubble
With my offerings, my offerings
My mind in pieces
With the bitter taste of my own medicine
I can't think straight

I'm not making a joke...
Track Name: Missing You
Every time I think of you
I always catch my breath
And I’m still standing here
And you’re miles away
And I'm wondering why you left
And there’s a storm that’s raging
Through my frozen heart tonight

I hear your name, in certain circles
And it always makes me smile
I spend my time, thinking about you
And it’s almost driving me wild
And there's a heart that’s breaking
Down this long distance line tonight

CHORUS
I ain’t missing you at all
Since you’ve been gone, away
I ain’t missing you
No matter, what I might say

There’s a message, in the wires
And I’m sending you this signal tonight
You don’t know, how desperate I’ve become
And it looks like I’m losing this fight
In your world I have no meaning
Though I'm trying hard to understand
And it's my heart that’s breaking
Down this long distance line tonight

CHORUS
I ain’t missing you at all
Since you’ve been gone, away
I ain’t missing you
No matter, what my friends say

And there’s a message that I’m sending out
Like a telegraph to your soul
And if I can’t bridge this distance
Stop this heartbreak overload

CHORUS
I ain’t missing you at all
Since you’ve been gone, away
I ain’t missing you
No matter, what my friends say


And there's a storm that's raging
Through my frozen heart tonight

CHORUS
I ain’t missing you at all
Since you’ve been gone, away
I ain’t missing you
No matter, what I might say....
