Track Name: Battle Of Me
It’s time to come down
Take my head out of the clouds
Plant my feet on the ground
Cause I know
I would feel proud
If I loved you girl
And did this one good thing with my life
But it’s hard to tell
When you live your days under your own knife


I’ve been searching for you
You've been searching for me
Every man needs a love
To set him free
It’s the battle of truth
It’s the battle to breath
It’s the battle of you
It’s the battle of me


I will leave this world
Having been witnessed for my worth
By the heart of a girl
Who invites me to own my hurt
No man should die alone
And tell himself it’s the only way
Your fearful heart
Makes its own reasons to be afraid


I’ve been searching for you
You’ve been searching for me
Every man needs a love
To set him free
It’s the battle of truth
It’s the battle top breath
It’s the battle of you
It’s the battle of me
I just want to believe
The man you tell me you see
And not succumb
To the fiction of me
It’s the battle of truth
It’s the battle to breath
It’s the battle of you
It’s battle of me

It’s the Battle Of Me
Track Name: Make Damn Sure
Oh, girl - you climbed up a tree, girl
you drank mushroom tea, girl
you owned your mistakes
we all make mistakes
so go on and build your big dreams
but don’t you forget about me
or the day that we drank champagne
so we could ignore the rain sweeping in

Make Damn Sure that you know where your heart is
Make Damn Sure that you keep it alive

She said on the day that she threw plates
“Don’t you dare sell my heartache”
So I made my big escape
And I took out a new a page
when I tore up all my old ways
because you just can’t outrun shame
and you just can’t outrun blame
when you’re blaming yourself
for it all

Make Damn Sure that you know where your heart is
Make Damn Sure that you keep it alive
Make Damn Sure every breath that you take
Shines a light on your faith


Make Damn Sure that you know where your heart is
Make Damn Sure that you keep it alive
Make Damn Sure every breath that you take
Shines a light on your faith
Track Name: Going Going Gone
Well I woke up today I found my city had moved away
packed itself up and left for places of the sun
Do I go or do I stay, now I’m the mayor of idle days
I can make it all up as I go along

To summarize, I’m a man that hides in behind…. I see a truth
Well I may be here tonight safe from all outside with you

All day long you’re just going going gone just a stranger in a song I can’t recall
All day long we’ll be going going gone maybe this one’s just the one that makes us fall

When I dragged the lake for reasons all the pages became seasons all the birthdays all the weekends slowed me some
When you climb up on your island burning time by blinking eyelids biting hands that feed the food you always want

All day long you’re just going going gone just a stranger in a song I can’t recall
All day long we’ll be going going gone maybe this one’s just the one that makes us fall

Well I woke up today I found my words had fallen away to where the deaf took out erasers and started again
I’m just a placement just a kid down in the basement a drop in the ocean washed away in the end

All day long you’re just going going gone just a stranger in a song I can’t recall
All day long we’ll be going going gone maybe this one’s just the one that makes us fall
Track Name: Shine
Why don’t you find something to do
instead of tying your emotions to
all the ideas that you thought you knew
have left you alone

Why don’t you find somewhere to move
A place to be who you believe is you
may you find a life that is true and all of your own

We’re not better or worse
only different at first
simply humans on earth
learning to shine

I believe in something unexplained
I believe in you on your worst day
When I’m a mess, and I’m lost and afraid
give me your hand

We’re not better or worse
only different at first
simply humans on earth
learning to shine
and when the day brings the hurt
when the night burns
I swear that’s where we shine

Now when I go I know you’ll see me return
So I can show you all the things I’ve learned
They’re fading like hundreds of words
washed away in the sand
Track Name: You Say
Baby I got something to say
But you never hear my words
You smiled as you walked away
Started a fire just to watch me burn
The hardest part of your flame
Is that my love for you can’t be unlearned
So baby I got something to say
From the ashes I will be heard

You say hold on
You say I’m wrong
You say that I
Am beating to a different drum
You say I’m the one
You say your done
So now Im gone
Cause I’ve been the fool all along

You loved me like a broken toy
Just used me and threw me away
So I’m leaving behind your noise
Getting further everyday
Loving you isn't a choice
I’m tired of livin this way
So I’m drowning out the sound of your voice
Because tomorrow is another day

You say hold on
You say I’m wrong
You say that I
Am beating to a different drum
You say I’m the one
You say your done
So now Im gone
Cause I’ve been the fool all along

Cause I’ve been the fool all along
Track Name: No Turning Back
You’re just a little girl and wanna leave this place
You know you don’t belong when you see your face
There’s no future to be had in this small town
Cause whisky drinkin’ men don't mix with wedding gowns
So you packed up your life and headed south
Settled on the coast just to figure things out
You’re gonna be the one who finally gets out
You’re gonna be the one who finally gets out

You got yourself a job in a brothel man
Cleaning up the rooms and the garbage cans
There’s holes in your shoes as you walk these streets
You barely pay your rent and you never eat
But it doesn't ever stop, you always believe…. that
There’s more to life than it may seem
Yah you know there’s more to life, know there’s more to life
but you gotta dream big


Theres no turning back now
There’s no turning back now
There’s no turning back now
On your life


Well its been several months and a number of jobs
Two broken hearts with love comes loss
You keep a picture of your folks by your side
You were only seventeen when the both died
You've had your share of tears and always made it through
You know they’re little steps you gotta see through
Because if you're gonna dream big and you're gonna survive
You're gonna have to learn how to die die die


Theres no turning back now
There’s no turning back now
There’s no turning back now
On your life
Track Name: Mountains
Oh girl, you hear the sounds
Big black boots stomping on to the ground
Gonna crush all this pavement into some dirt
All the girls and the boys
Strung out and messing with their toys
All dressed to kill sweet mother earth
Thats why I say

Let me take you to the mountains
Let me take you to the mountains
Let me take you to the mountains
Let me take you to them hills

Oh girl, you’re at the end of your rope
Choking on the noise in the big city smoke
Take a look in my eyes and all you need to know
Every night you’re left begging for your money
Every time you leave my side honey
Oh baby, I know where we need to go go

Let me take you to the mountains
Let me take you to the mountains
Let me take you to the mountains
Let me take you to them hills

Oh girl, I think I’ve lost my mind
In the fog of the daily grind
I’ll be the one to take you and run to the light
I hope the world could understand
That we are falling down to wards an end
Until that time we’ll be in the mountains again and again and again and again

Let me take you to the mountains
Let me take you to the mountains
Let me take you to the mountains
Let me take you to them hills
Track Name: Dakota
Stop killin’ me with all this medicine
I need pills and trills and drink
I ain’t innocent but I’m not old enough
to feel these pangs of dread

I might finally see what was meant for me
when I Iay my burden down

Maybe I’ll find a dance in Dakota
where I won’t be broken
