Track Name: New Life
New Life

I packed a few things in my car, some said I wouldn’t get that far
I didn’t listen, cuz sometimes you’ve gotta listen to your heart
Well I know it’s waiting, just around the bend
I can almost taste it, I am closing in, so I close my eyes and dream about this brand new life.

I’VE GOT NEW BEGINNINGS
I’VE GOT 2ND CHANCES
I’VE GOT NEW HORIZONS JUST WAITING FOR ME
I’LL MAKE NEW MEMORIES
I’LL HAVE NEW ADVENTURES
I’LL BE HAPPY KNOWING EVERYTHING’S ALRIGHT
IN MY BRAND NEW LIFE

I know I chose a tougher road, but something told me I should go
I wanna live my life and have my story told
Well it might sound crazy, but it makes sense to me
I love this town, but I’ve gotta chase my dreams, so I close my eyes and dream about this brand new life

I’VE GOT NEW BEGINNINGS
I’VE GOT 2ND CHANCES
I’VE GOT NEW HORIZONS JUST WAITING FOR ME
I’LL MAKE NEW MEMORIES
I’LL HAVE NEW ADVENTURES
I’LL BE HAPPY KNOWING EVERYTHING’S ALRIGHT
IN MY BRAND NEW LIFE

I watch the sunset in my review mirror, and suddenly I see life a little clearer…

I’VE GOT NEW BEGINNINGS
I’VE GOT 2ND CHANCES
I’VE GOT NEW HORIZONS JUST WAITING FOR ME
I’LL MAKE NEW MEMORIES
I’LL HAVE NEW ADVENTURES
I’LL BE HAPPY KNOWING EVERYTHING’S ALRIGHT
IN MY BRAND NEW LIFE
Track Name: Open Road
There are long days, sometimes wrong ways
But I've learned to face each one as it comes
And this journey is for learning and earning my place in the sun
Said goodbye to the child in me
There's a world out there where I've got to be

It's the path of most resistance
I'm on to where it takes persistence
But I know how to drive and don't look back
It's laid out before me now
And nothing's gonna slow me down
Where it leads nobody really knows
It's an open road

Life is full of choices and mine will have many to be seen From dreamer to achiever, a believer in the power of me
I tried running from my past, only to find
What it's taught me is to keep eyes open wide

It's the path of most resistance
I'm on to where it takes persistence
But I know how to drive and don't look back
It's laid out before me now
And nothing's gonna slow me down
Where it leads nobody really knows
It's an open road

It's a daily struggle here
To take the chance and face my fears
But wherever I go I'm never alone

It's the path of most resistance
I'm on to where it takes persistence
But I know how to drive and don't look back
It's laid out before me now
And nothing's gonna slow me down
Where it leads nobody really knows
It's an open road
Track Name: Fallen Angel
I watch the shadows fall upon your face
Beautiful angel sent out of grace
Let me hear your thoughts without a sound
You're my survival, you lift me up when I fall down

You breathed life into this hallow heart of mine
Your love it sets me free from all this built up misery
You help me see a different truth when I'm down on my knees
Lord Please, let me keep this fallen angel you sent to me

So many empty nights passed by before your touch
Too many teardrops fell, they drowned out my thoughts
My sky was always gray and rain fell from the stars above
Until you kissed my lips, then you showed me real love

You breathed life into this hallow heart of mine
Your love it sets me free from all this built up misery
You help me see a different truth when I'm down on my knees
Lord Please, let me keep this fallen angel you sent to me

Well you showed me how to smile again
How to live out loud, don't fear the end
Well you know my heart, you know my soul
So this is love now I know

You breathed life into this hallow heart of mine
Your love it sets me free from all this built up misery
You help me see a different truth when I'm down on my knees
Lord Please, let me keep this fallen angel you sent to me
Track Name: Love Don't Even Know My Name
I pick up the phone to check for a tone
It's been a while since it rang
Another Saturday night no romance in site
Love Don't Even Know My Name

Ben and Amy stopped by to see if I might
Go grab a beer and watch the game
But I know I'd feel like a 3rd wheel
Love Don't Even Know My Name

I've heard that love is blind, but I'm not that hard to find
My heart has left a trail of tears
And I'm ready for the taking, but I've been forsaken
Forgotten left out in the rain
Love Don't Even Know My Name

There's just gotta be that someone for me
With that spark to start a flame
But I'll have to be strong till he comes along
Cuz right now Love Don't Even Know My Name

I've heard that love is blind, but I'm not that hard to find
My heart has left a trail of tears
And I'm ready for the taking, but I've been forsaken
Forgotten left out in the rain
Love Don't Even Know My Name

(Banjo & Guitar Solo)

I've heard that love is blind, but I'm not that hard to find
My heart has left a trail of tears
And I'm ready for the taking, but I've been forsaken
Forgotten left out in the

I've heard that love is blind, but I'm not that hard to find
My heart has left a trail of tears
And I'm ready for the taking, but I've been forsaken
Forgotten left out in the rain
Love Don't Even Know My Name
Track Name: Right Here With Me
You were six, I was four
Walking to Coombs general store getting ice cream, same size as our heads
I dropped mine, start to cry
Rocky Road puddles floating by, you could've laughed but gave me half instead

It's little things like that, that I remember
You're my best friend, two for one, closer than just sisters

Through the years we've stayed the same, some things never change
You're the voice inside my head and a million memories
Don't need to say a word I understand you better
You will always be right here with me

You and Dad taught me to drive that beat up 1985 Buik that smelt like grandmas shoes
It only cost a hundred bucks but it was good to both of us
It died the day I graduated high school

Two life long partners in crime
But I knew someday we'd have to live our seperate lives

Through the years we've stayed the same, some things never change
You're the voice inside my head and a million memories
Don't need to say a word I understand you better
You will always be...

Through the years we've stayed the same, some things never change
You're the voice inside my head and a million memories
Don't need to say a word I understand you better
You will always be right here with me
Right Here With Me

You're the voice inside my head
Don't need to say a word
Mmmmhmm some things, some things, some things never change
We've stayed the same
Track Name: No Yellow Brick Road
Put on your walking shoes and leave this town behind
It's time you grew some wings and learned how to fly
It's a crazy world we're living in and there are no guarantees
And I'll tell you something that was said to me

There is no yellow brick road no matter how far you get from home
Dreams are worth chasing, but baby don't you know
No matter where you're running, no matter where you go
There is no yellow brick road


I guess I always knew this day would come
Like a child learns to walk I knew someday you'd run
You can't pack this in your suitcase, you can't hold it in your hand
Just take this piece of wisdom and do the best you can

There is no yellow brick road no matter how far you get from home
Dreams are worth chasing, but baby don't you know
No matter where you're running, no matter where you go
There is no yellow brick road

Some roads lead to happiness and some are just dead ends
Life ain't always what it seems you've gotta trust what you beleive in

There is no yellow brick road no matter how far you get from home
Dreams are worth chasing, but baby don't you know
No matter where you're running, no matter where you go
There is no yellow brick road
There is no yellow brick road
Track Name: Should've Walked Away
Thought I built my armour piece by piece
But I never saw where it was weakest
When he walked in that door that night
I thought he was trouble, turns out I was right

Should've just walked away
Should've made a fast escape
Dropped everything, turned and ran
Put my heart in bubble wrap
And I should've listened to my friends
Or I wouldn't be in the shape I'm in
I'd just go, I wouldn't stay
Should've Walked Away

My castel walls were built so high
But they crumbled under saphire eyes
Beaten down by poisened kisses
If it seems too good it probably is

Should've just walked away
Should've made a fast escape
Dropped everything, turned and ran
Put my heart in bubble wrap
And I should've listened to my friends
Or I wouldn't be in the shape I'm in
I'd just go, I wouldn't stay
Should've Walked Away

Saw him out just last night
Same old him, same old lies
Found the girl told her privately
What I wish someone had said to me...

Should've just walked away
Should've made a fast escape
Dropped everything, turned and ran
Put my heart in bubble wrap
And I should've listened to my friends
Or I wouldn't be in the shape I'm in
I'd just go, I wouldn't stay
Should've Walked Away
Should've Walked Away
Track Name: Never Been In love Before
Must be something going round cuz I can't stop smiling
My heart is racing I can hear it pound, light is blinding
When he walks into the room, I get weaker
Starting to think he's the reason

Never been in love before
Never been in love before
Don't know what I've got but I like it a lot
If this is how if feels I want more
Cuz I've never been in love before

Just last week he took me to the county fair
Bought me cotton candy, won a big stuffed polar bear
Saw the fortune teller Madame mystery
Did he pay a little extra for a spell on me?

Never been in love before
Never been in love before
Don't know what I've got but I like it a lot
If this is how if feels I want more
Cuz I've never been in love before

If he's the one who started this
Is it transmitted through his kisses?

Never been in love before
Never been in love before
Don't know what I've got but I like it a lot
If this is how if feels I want more

Never been in love before
Never been in love before
Don't know what I've got but I like it a lot
If this is how if feels I want more
Cuz I've never been in love before
No I've never been in love before
Track Name: Heading Home
Driving down the innerstate got one thing on my mind today
Passing those city signs heading to the place where I belong
90 miles to go before I see those old dirt roads
I'll hit the gas, get there fast, ya I'm heading home

The black top ends before you pass the city limit sign
No mercedes, rusty tractors are just fine
And I wanna see golden fields blow in the breeze
That's how I know I'm heading home

It's been a couple years wonder if anything has changed round here
I up and left so fast with my big dreams and a tank of gas
I couldn't wait to see what this big ole world had planned for me
I found out that when I get back I never wanna leave

The black top ends before you pass the city limit sign
No mercedes, rusty tractors are just fine
And I wanna see golden fields blow in the breeze
That's how I know I'm heading home

I'm Heading home
I'm heading home

The black top ends before you pass the city limit sign
No mercedes, rusty tractors are just fine
And I wanna see golden fields blow in the breeze
That's how I know I'm heading home

Driving down the innerstate got one thing on my mind today
Track Name: Unchained Melody
Oh, my love, my darling
I've hungered for your touch
A long, lonely time

And time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine?

I need your love
I need your love
God speed your love to me!

Lonely rivers flow
To the sea, to the sea
To the open arms of the sea

Lonely rivers sigh
"Wait for me, wait for me"
I'll be coming home, wait for me!

Oh, my love, my darling
I've hungered, hungered for your touch
A long, lonely time

And time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine?

I need your love
I need your love
God speed your love to me!
