Track Name: We'll Take Our Time
We'll take our time
We'll take our time
I could be your guy
If we take our time

I don't want to rush into your kind of love
Don't give me a push or give me a shove
We'll take our time

Well, easy is
As easy does
And lucky for me
How easy it was

To find you girl, I knew right away
You could be my world, if you do what I say
We'll take our time
Track Name: Make Her Scream
When I was merely 10 years old
My grandpa was a seasoned soul
We sat out on that porch
And he would tell me just how life would be

He liked to talk about the world
But most of all the pretty girls
There are those that’ll give you a twirl
This is what he said to me

There’s a woman wanna steal your soul
There’s a women make a young man old
There’s a woman gon’ try to make you mean
But first you gotta, you gotta make her scream

All night, All night, Alright, Alright, All night, All night, Alright, Alright, Ooooh

Told me ‘bout a business man
Found himself on the Yucatan
Senorita playing in the sane
He got more than he bargained for

Wouldn’t love him ‘til she saw him plead
He knew that she was all he’d need
Got her hotter than 200 degrees
Then he left her beggin’ for more

The moral of the story son
When you go and you get you some
You gotta beat the woman to the punch
Let her know this is how it’s gonna be


That sage advice from a business man
Who met a girl playing in the sand
He kept on loving her just as he can
This is what he said to me

Ya know, boy, you’re gonna pay
Gonna end up giving away
Unless you hear what I say
And show your woman how her body’s made

You gotta kiss the right place
To get that look on her face
Then when she’s gotten a taste
You show her how hear heart can race
Track Name: Stopping the Blues
I have a father
I have a mother
I have a brother and a sister, but I still need you

I don't need money
I don't need sunny
It isn't funny all I need in my life is you
To love me true
Stay with me baby you're the only thing that's stopping the blues

There is no other
Who undercover
Is a lover who could possibly compete with you

You do me something
You keep me jumping
My heart's a thumping every time I think of you
Who loves me true
Stay with me baby you're the only thing that's stopping the blues

You never doubt me
You always agree
You helped me to see that I can't stop loving you

Having a good time
Feeling sublime
I don't pay a dime for me to be with you
You love me true
Stay with me baby you're the only thing that's stopping the blues
Track Name: Devil May Care
They say devil may care but I know they're wrong
That man's got too many sins to call hell his home
Forgive him you can try but he's not the kind to atone
They say devil may care but I know they're wrong

When I held you
To keep you warm
The blood of my lover's heart stained my arms

You told me you loved me
And we'd meet again
But first I had to find your killer and my revenge

They say devil may care but I know they're wrong
That man's got too many sins to call hell his home

So I loaded
My only gun
And sped off desperate chasing down that setting sun

To find the thieving bastard
Who's wicked eyes
In a single errant gunshot stole my wife

They say devil may care but I know they're wrong
That man's got too many sins to call hell his home

When I get him
Square in my sights
I'm gonna turn his heartless living into endless night

Cuz I got a message
To deliver as well
You gotta have a god-damned soul to find a warm welcome in hell

They say devil may care but I know they're wrong
So I'll be bringing hell in my hand to send that killer home
I'm not afraid of revenge will bring
Cuz I'm not to proud to atone
Track Name: I've Been There
The Devil looks very nice
When she’s dressed in black and white
Never trust someone who habitually lies
Like a woman who won’t see you lest she’s in a disguise

I’ve been there
I’ve been there before
I’ve been there
She’s left me wanting more, more, more

I don’t know if I could ever love her
Especially when she’s seducing others
But she drives me wild when she’s undercover
Even when she’s bringing out the whips and the rubber

I’ve been there
I’ve been there before
I’ve been there
She’s left me wanting more, more, more

Don’t you think we should quiet down
Protest them from the screams and the shouts
Keeping everything just between ourselves
And we’ll save it til they’re gone, we’ll bring down the house

I’ve been there
I’ve been there before
I’ve been there
She’s left me wanting more, more, more
Track Name: Back My Way
You love me baby
So you let me fly
Couldn’t match your heart
Thought I’d find out why
Shouldn’t take too long
Maybe months or so
Then I’m back in your arms
To love you more

I ran to the crossroads
In the dark of night
Strumming my guitar
Looking for a fight
Didn’t take too long
Til I thought of you
Nearly bled to death
Wore my fingers through

You broke your heart for this music man
He’ll appreciate your love if you let him again
It won’t be easy to trust his mind
But listen to his words and you will find
The first thing that I thought of was you
When you were gone


I sat on that road til the break of day
My hands were numb I could barely play
But I found what I have come for
That soulful sound
Now all that I was needing was you around
Baby you were gone when I got back home
Thought you would be waiting sitting all alone
Now I’m on this porch nearly all damn day
Looking for my baby to come back my way

Oh, but wait a minute

Forget all my troubles
Forfeit all my pain
For my woman has come back again
Track Name: Heavy Heart
There was a time when I thought I had it all
A love that was light like the wind
But the mind has a way of convincing the heart
That everything is better than it is

A young man in love doesn't know what's in store
With a siren whose eyes like the sun
Will burn right through him, leaving him wanting more
It hurts so good that he will never run
CHORUS:
Your heavy heart is weighing me down
It's holding me under, till my breath runs out
Your heavy heart is pushing me round
And it's buried me in my grave

Tell me truth you mean to do me like this
Burn me up, burn me out of my mind
When our skin's so hot, that you can hear it hiss
But a cost so great that it's left me blind

I thought there was much more that I could learn from you
More than another lesson learned
Funny how things turn out, and how I never knew
It's not my love by my soul that you burned

BRIDGE:
I love you with everything I've got
And I hoped that you would see
That me being here with you
Is all you'd ever need

But you couldn't let it go
All the pain that came before
So you had to take it out on me
And try to settle the score
Track Name: The World To Me
You have everything
I have ever wanted
You make my heart sing
That means all the world to me

Shortly after we'd met
You showed me your heart beating
I felt how hot you get
That meant all the world to me

If you ever thought that
I could never fall in love

I have found a lover who can take make breath away
She will blow my cover since I never talk this way
But, I have given up on thinking I can save my face
To fight against this sort of feeling that her love creates

Every time we kiss
I feel you lean closer
Whispering tenderness
That means all the world to me

You told me you would be mine
When I was on my knee
A whole lotta love for all time
That means all the world to me


If you ever thought that
I could never fall in love

I have found a lover who can take make breath away
She will blow my cover since I never talk this way
But, I have given up on thinking I can save my face
To fight against this sort of feeling that her love creates

Fall in love, fall in love

Time showed me just what I was waiting for
So in doubt I just wait for a little more
When I see I'm right where I need to be
I never thought I could be so patiently

Wondering what I had been searching for
When you smile comes walking through the door
If I had to I could wait for you forever

I have found a lover who can take make breath away
She will blow my cover since I never talk this way
But, I have given up on thinking I can save my face
To fight against this sort of feeling that her love creates
Track Name: I Tried
I Tried
How I tried
To Love you baby
You know I tried

My love
Can't be denied
You know, baby, how much I tried

I was going to love you baby
Til my dying day
To be my love forever
Was the only way

I went along with you
Through the ups and the downs
I rode along with you
Even when you ran me around

CHORUS

It turns out our love
Wasn't meant to be
It had the makings of
Something I didn't want to see

You told me you wanted distance
One thing I couldn't never give
I put up much resistance
Told you I would never live

Apart from you again
Wasn't what I had in mind
When I married you baby
It was the final time

CHORUS

Babe, I know that we had our better days
We tried our best but somehow the trouble stayed
Can't keep thinking it could've gone another way
Looking forward to finding love again

Now you move along alone
Looking for your king
To take my throne
the best its ever seen

And he'll love you every day
The only way the he can
You know you've seen the ways
Of a loving man

Now I move along alone
Looking for my queen
to take your throne
the best its ever seen

And I'll love her every day
The only way that I can
I know I’ve seen my ways
I am a loving man

I know I’ve seen my ways
I am a loving man

I know you’ve seen my ways
I am a loving man

CHORUS
