Track Name: Matter at All
Met a man on an eastbound road, waiting on his love but she never came
He was drunk and falling in the street with a broken hand in the blackened rain
Said man are you're gonna make it, he said I don't know
So I offered him a ride to the next town, and he let go

Met a woman on a westbound plane, headed for her man without a plan
She had heard he was out in California, raising hell in the desert air
Said ma'am are you gonna make it? She said I don't,
So I offered her my ear and for a minute, she let go

Maybe it won't matter at all, in this big old scheme
Maybe it won't matter at all, and it's the end of the dream
Maybe it won't matter at all, it's been a long time running down a dead man's path
Maybe it won't matter at all, but do it for yourself

Met a man in a broken mirror, he was drinking hard and loosing time
I was drunk and bleeding in the street with a broken hand when the cops arrived
Said sir am I gonna make it, he said I don't know
Then he offered me another day of freedom, and I let go

Maybe it won't matter at all, in this big old scheme
Maybe it won't matter at all, and it's the end of the dream
Maybe it won't matter at all, it's been a long time running down a dead man's path
Maybe it won't matter at all, but do it for yourself.
Track Name: The Weight
This day is hardly over
But I can feel the dawn
This day is halfway over
Now that the sun is gone

This cold wind makes me older
Harsh winds they bring me down
But when the sun is rising
It's new life I have found

It's not my time
I can't help but feel the weight
It's not today
I know I am on my way

It might not be your time
But every hour is a gift
It may not be your time....

This life is hardly over
It's not too late to change
Your stars are always moving
Life is an open range

What stirs inside us all
We did not put there on our own
You've given me no choice
This is the calling of my age

It's not my time
I can't help but feel the weight
It's not today
I know I am on my way

It might not be your time
But every hour is a gift
It may not be tonight
Someday you will find
It might not be your time
But every hour is a gift
It is a state of mind
It may not be tonight
But someday you will find a way
Track Name: Give a Damn
I'm always the last one leaving
You're always on hour over due
I'm always the first one chasing down a dead end love down a dead end road

I'm always one dollar short
You're always two ahead
I'm always looking for a way to pay just so I can try to lay you down

I know that you don't give a damn

I though that you were the one
But I can see this love is done
And you're a lost cause, and I'm a strong man
Just know that I don't give a damn

You're always quick to judge me
I'm too quick to let it go
You're always the first one sparking up an easy burn from a page long turned,

I know that you don't give a damn

I thought that you were the one
But I can see this love is done
And you're a lost cause and I'm a strong man
Just know that I don't give a damn
Track Name: Love Is
Love is strange thing, you lose your mind
You stick around when it's wrong, and leave when it's right

Love is a strange thing, it makes you wait
like the changing of seasons, day by day

Love is a strange thing, it makes you blind
Like a delicate dance, you only learn with time

Love is a strange thing, so hard to show
To let her see your heart, is to touch your soul

It's taken a long long time, to write these rhymes
and baby I won't always get it right
But I promise you, I will make you mine
and I'll be with you to the end

Love is strange thing, what's mine is ours
Oh a love like this, not even death can part
Love was a strange thing, when I found you
but after all this time, I still long for you

to the end of time, I still long for you
Track Name: Your Divine
You can hear it in the mountains
in a dancing stream
You can feel it in the wind
Like a whisper in a dream

It's buried in your soul, come find it
It's calling out to you

You can see it in their eyes
A longing gaze
You can see it on their faces
But they're miles away

It's buried in your soul, go find it
It's calling out to you

Travel on your own
Leave no stone unturned
Cast your fears aside
Find your own divine

They can see it in your eyes
So wise and grey,
They can see it in your face
And the miles you've seen

It's buried in your soul, come find it
It's calling out to you






Travel on your own
Leave no stone unturned
Cast your fears aside
Find your own divine

When they tell your story?
Will they say your name?
Will there be an ending?
That you'll want to claim

It's buried in your soul, go find it
It's calling out to you
Track Name: See Fire
Where have you been?
What was your sin?
The light on the hill, where blood was spilled
The fuel and flame found with wind

Where will you go?
Where no one will know.
When all that is left, a shadow of death
And a road to a life on the run

And in your last waking hour, when at last you retire
See fire

What was your plan
Killing that man?
Was it vengeance or love, or the money you love
That drove in the knife in the dark

And in your last waking hour, when at last you retire
See fire

And in your last sleeping hour, when at last you expire
See Fire.

And in your last sleeping hour, when at least you retire,
when the smoke rises high, and you finally die

See Fire
Track Name: Just Ride
JUST RIDE

Take a breath and close your eyes,
Feel the Earth turn beneath the skies,
Believe that we're the same
Riders on a train

Who is driving, where are we going?
Is it death or is it knowing
Why must we choose a side
Where we can blindly hide?

Just ride
Just ride
Just ride

Every second of every minute,
Every hour, revel in it
We are alive today
In a moment it can change

As we float upon the sheet of time
Let the moment make our voices climb
Trust the ebb and flow of the tide

Just ride
Just ride
Just ride








It's a tragedy
Who I used to be
It still weighs on my mind
But the road I walk
The words I talk
And the heart that beats in me
It's the man I choose to be
Well it's the man I choose to be
It's the man I choose to be

You are driving where are you going?
You are death and you are knowing
Take a walk outside
Spread your wings and fly

And just ride
