Track Name: Muddywater
All muddy water
All look the same
All muddy water
All look the same

You bit my lip
You kissed me so hard
Didn't know what I felt when you walked out my backdoor through my backyard
So I drive and I drive
Through the streets I know
Hoping something will help me remember where I thought I was going

All muddy water yeah
All look the same
All muddy water yeah
All look the same

Trains run on time
Going from here to somewhere
I used to know all the names of the faces that I used run into there
And when a friend a good friend becomes a stranger
Somehow that stranger becomes a ghost

All muddy water mmm
All look the same
All muddy water
All look the same

I was always old enough to
Sing along to the big kid's song
Now we say it don't mean nothing
Knowing if something's right or wrong

Red and black
Yellow into silver
Dripping from a canvas like coffee from a cup
Yesterday's trouble is somebody else's now
Can't try to stop it so much as you try to rise above it somehow

All muddy water
All look the same
All muddy water yeah
Somehow
All look the same
Track Name: Give it All You Can
If it's what you live to do
Give it all you can
Give it all you can
If it's what you long to see
Do it while you can
Do it while you can

Here you never noticed where it's going
Here is all the life you'll ever live
Here will be here waiting in the morning dear
Here

If it's what you live to do
Give it all you can
Give it all you can
If it's what you long to see
Do it while you can
Do it while you can

Now is when you wake up every morning
Now is all the life you'll ever live
Now is all we have and all we have is dear
Now

If it's what you live to do
Give it all you can
Give it all you can
If it's what you long to see
Do it while you can
Do it while you can

Break

If it's what you live to do
Give it all you can
Give it all you can
If it's what you long to see
Do it while you can
Do it while you can

If it's what you live to do
Give it all you can
Give it all you can
If it's what you long to see
Do it while you can

Give it all you can
Give it all you can
Track Name: Flowers for Lori
I don't need a reason to show her my love
Anytime I mean it is good enough
And anything I do for her she'll do it for me
Cause I'm her king and she's my queen that's right

Hey yeah soul music fills the house
Hey yeah she'll be comin' home anytime now
Hey yeah fresh from the garden so lovely
Flowers for Lori
Flowers for Lori

I come home early I get things ready
Bottle of red wine some old reggae
Some bread in the oven some oil in a pan
She's my celebrity I'm her fan alright

Hey yeah soul music fills the house
Hey yeah she'll be comin' home anytime now
Hey yeah fresh from the garden so lovely
Flowers for Lori
Flowers for Lori

Tulips and daisies
Violets and posies
Ain't life sweet
Just smelling' the roses

Tulips and daisies
Violets and posies
Ain't life sweet
Just smellin' the roses

Flowers for Lori

Flowers for Lori

Hey yeah soul music fills the house
Hey yeah she'll be home anytime now
Hey yeah fresh from the garden
So lovely

Track Name: Wheelhouse
Looking you over checking you out
I never had a doubt
It's in the wheelhouse

Licking my lips
Ready to pounce
Bout to hit it a mile
It's in the wheelhouse

None of that hesitation
Picking up all the signs
Swinging out for the fences
Lay it on the line

Gonna be fun
Knowing for sure
All we can do is score
It's in the wheelhouse

Ain't gonna worry
Ain't gonna cry
Don't even have to lie
It's in the wheelhouse

None of that hesitation
I'm picking up all the signs
Swinging out for the fences
Lay it on the line

Gonna be the right time
Gonna be tonight
Gonna be the right time
Right time
Right time

I could be an average Joe
You wouldn't even know
It's in the wheelhouse

Over your head into the dirt
I'm gonna make it work
It's in the wheelhouse

None of that reservation
Throwing out all design
Swinging out for the fences
Lay it on the line
Track Name: Stars
Stars
Burning overhead
Falling far away
Where you are
Reach for me
I feel your galaxies
Other worldly
Golden arms

Did you ever see the sun at night?
Did you ever see the moon so bright?
Don't you know we're made of stars?
Don't you know how you pretty you are?

Heavenly
How you look to me
See how high we are
From the ground
Reach for me
I feel your gravity
It's our energy
That goes on

Did you ever see the sun at night?
Did you ever see the moon so bright?
Don't you know you're made of stars?
Don't you know how you pretty you are?

Sometimes the city lights overtake you
Some nights I lie awake and thank you

Stars
Burning overhead
Falling far away
Where you are

Did you ever see the sun at night?
Did you ever see the moon so bright?
Don't you know we're made of stars?
Don't you know how you pretty you are?
