Track Name: A love that roars
You talk about tomorrow,
About raising the stakes
You think about your sorrow
About all those past heart breaks

You talk about the feeling
Of her skin against yours
You say you want the healing
Of a love that roars

You talk about a story
Where all live in the end
But you needn't worry brother,
You can grab my hand

Alone is not the way
I'm right here by your side
No you're not alone today,
I'm along for the ride

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Can't you feel the love around us
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Can't you feel the love rise from the dust

You talk about revival
About how your soul was saved
You wait for her arrival
You say she's got what you crave

You say one night in her bed
Will bring you to the edge
You want your life colored in red
A way out of your cage

You're ready to jump right off that cliff
You don't have wings but hey, you'll do as if
Track Name: Love all night
I walked into the bar
She said you're looking good so far
And do you wanna be my man tonight

I said I don't know who you are
But baby jump into my car
And we'll figure out how to make this feel all right

Her hands were on my old guitar
Said baby I'll make you star
Just promise you'll never leave my sight

She lit up my big cigar
I took a swig from her mason jar
Proceeded to fly high as a kite

G D A
And we loved all night
Till we couldn't stand up right
Yeah we loved all night
G A
Love all night

When my front door was left ajar
I knew she'd left me with a scar
A broken heart and a song to write

I wished on the first morning star
Heard the whine of the steel guitar
And let the words on the paper take flight

Bm G D A X2
G A

G D A
Cause we loved all night
Till we couldn't stand up right
Yeah we loved all night
G A
Love all night
Track Name: (She said) Come with my tonight
G
She said come with me tonight
C

Let's see if love can take flight
D
Before tomorrow comes around

We could live life far away
Let's drop anchor in the bay
Never again wear a frown

C
As the sun sets on the island
G
She's in my arms to stay
D
And we sat down on the sand
C G
And waited for the brand new day

Life has been so good since then
That I can't remember when
A smile could not be found

We do not have much, it's true
oh but we have me and you
And that's why love sticks around
Track Name: The Vagabond Song
G C
Well there's a world on the other side of this mountain
G
I know one day I'll walk the windy trail
Before I go drink from the heavenly fountain
I pray my sense of adventure will prevail

Sometimes I stay up late at night and dream of a voyage
To a world I heard about but I've never seen
The day will come when I will be of health and age
And I'll go roaming all over this world of green

And the old man he tells me
Stories and tales
Bout being young and free
And all the fun that entails

And I wanna be a vagabond
with the world as my front yard
I wanna see the ruins of Babylon
And give Ireland my regard

My mother tells me to find me a nice girl
To settle down and start a family
But all I wanna do is travel round the world
LIke Fogg did right before 1873

So I've been saving all my money and my dreams
Of places far away and lands of marvel
I've got maps for every continent it seems
I'm finally ready to start my travel

And the old man he tells me
Stories and tales
Bout being young and free
And all the fun that entails

After thirty years on the road I found my way home
I'm sitting on the front porch of my grandpa's house
There are many roads less traveled left to roam
But I never did find me a good spouse
Track Name: In the groove
G
You say my love is sweet
A7
That you can't wait to meet
C G
And I'm all right with that

You say your love is strong
Strong as the day is long
And I'm grateful for that

Em A7 C
But we gotta wait at least another day
G
Oh man there's no way
Em A7 C
I want you here with me, as close as you can be
Oh close enough that we

Can dance to the same beat
When love turns up the heat
We'll love warm and sweet

We'll make up some new moves
Who cares who disapproves
Oh baby, we're in the groove

Babe tell me where you are
And I'll jump in my car
If you're OK with that

I wanna love you strong
Strong as the day is long
Track Name: Across the bay
Sold the house and bought a boat
Left behind my winter coat
Nothing but you and the sea
Nothing but knowing we are free

We can sail until we like the view
Until the water's deep and blue
We'll read stories bout a world of love
As we gaze at the stars above

The wind will take us where it may
Across the world or across the bay
We'll take the time to live again
Sure is nice meeting you again, my friend

We'll try an island for a day
Maybe we'll go maybe we'll stay
There's no plan, no rendez vous
Feel free to just be you

And if we feel the time is right
I'll hold you in my arms so tight
We'll say the words that make us one
We'll say the words then we'll be gone
Track Name: Grow old together
Standing here on the sand
Thinking 'bout holding your hand
Seeing times in my mind
Before love was ours to find

And I know in my heart
That what sets us apart
Is the love that we share
Like there ain't a minute to spare

And we live and we laugh and we love
And we talk of forever
And we sing and we dance
And we know we'll grow old together
And we smile and we stay close and strong for each other
And we thank God above that we found one another

Sitting here on a chair
Our heads bent, lost in prayer
And our words as one sound
Pick us up right off the ground

And we know clear as day
That our love's here to stay
Take my hand right in yours
Let's see what life has in store

And we live and we laugh and we love
And we talk of forever
And we sing and we dance
And we know we'll grow old together
And we smile and we stay close and strong for each other
And we thank God above that we found one another

Let the storm come to our front door
Know that I'll only love you more

And we live and we laugh and we love
And we talk of forever
And we sing and we dance
And we know we'll grow old together
And we smile and we stay close and strong for each other
And we thank God above that we found one another
Track Name: She's worth
They've been together
For a couple of weeks
Feels like forever
Whenever she speaks

He said I'll never find another like her
God willing, that's what we 'd all prefer

Man she's worth leaving the country overnight
She's worth running til she's outta sight
She's worth speeding through any red light

She's worth leaving it all behind
She's worth turning deaf and blind
She's worth paying any fine

Just to get her out of your mind

They've been apart for a couple of weeks
It breaks his heart, that his mind still seeks

The feel of that joy of that original thrill
Oh how he wishes he were holding her, still

Man she's worth leaving the country overnight
She's worth running til she's outta sight
She's worth speeding through any red light

She's worth leaving it all behind
She's worth turning deaf and blind
She's worth paying any fine

Just to get her out of your mind
Track Name: Find your happy
You say you'd be happy if you had a new car
You say you'd be happy if you could live far
With more money in your pocket
You'd take off like a rocket

You say you'd be happy with just a couple of more things
You say you'd be happy if you could live like kings
One great big shopping haul
Your life wouldn't feel so small

But things don't give you the happy
So stop looking for the next sugar daddy
Find your happy, you left it somewhere
At the bottom of your heart, did you look there?

You say you'd be happy with a house from a magazine
You say you'd be happy with a big movie screen
You need more things to show your worth
Buying new stuff is like a second birth

You say you'd be happy with a room just for your shoes
You say you'd be happy with more stuff than you can use
You wanna buy a boat just to talk about the sea
But if you don't use your freedom are you really free?
Track Name: You're still alive
You're still alive cause I can't afford a hit man
And I don't have the money, but I have the plan
You better watch your back
If I win at the track
You know an itchy finger
Will pull that trigger

You're still alive cause the law says I can't take you out
And I don't have a way to stay beyond a reasonable doubt
A shower at the jail
Not a good place for my tail
You know an itchy finger
Would pull that trigger

It's a pity, it's a shame
But I loathe you all the same
I hope I'll be around
When they put you in the ground

You're still alive cause the time and the place aren't right
And I don't have the perfect line of sight
I'm seeking higher ground
With nobody around
You know my itchy finger
Will pull that trigger

It's a pity, it's a shame
But I loathe you all the same
I hope I'll be around
When they put you in the ground

I know you think this is wrong
But they can't all be love songs.
