Track Name: Who You Callin'?
I reminisce about the days that have gone
If it's fair then why's it so wrong
Who you callin'?
If anything has ever numbed my brain
Sent my heart way up into flames
Who you callin'?

I dreamed of you last night
In the best times of my love
Seemed to be more than sight
Than the rest of all these floods

And I wonder how we got here
Or how this came to be
In these times of trouble we avoid the clear
To shouts' the only way that we see

I reminisce about the days that have gone
If it's fair then why's it so wrong
Who you callin'?
If anything has ever numbed my brain
Sent my heart way up into flames
Who you callin'?

I put on my favorite song
Sit back and rest, but don't stay very long
All these thoughts that I have, they don't belong
In my head anymore
Track Name: Blues In Dijón
Nothing to be done
The flame just couldn't be saved
Nothing to be done
The flame just couldn't be saved
Oh, Lord! Let me fall down
And sink straight to my grave

I was so quick to leave her
Couldn't stay by her side
I was so quick to leave her
Couldn't stay by her side
Now I'm just sitting here alone,
Thinking about her on the riverside

I wake up with the sunrise
I work all day
I wake up with the sunrise
I work all damn day
My baby and her lovin' are so far away

If you want to please me,
Don't make me beg
If you want to please me,
Don't make me beg
Just squeeze my lemon,
'til the juice runs down my...
Track Name: Next Stop: Porch Stompin'
Well I woke up this morning and all I could see were smiles
Yeah woke up this morning and all I could see were smiles
So I went on that back porch yea and played there for awhile
Yeah I wake up every morning and all I can see are smiles

Well I woke up this morning and all I could hear was music
Yeah woke up this morning and all I could hear was music
So I went on that back porch and damn right darn abused it
Yeah I wake up every morning and I all hear is music

Lets do a little porch stompin' now
Lets do a little porch stompin' now
Lets do a little porch stompin' now
Well I'm stompin' on that porch a thousand times an hour
Lets do a little porch stompin' now

Well I laid down last night and felt worn out and used
Yeah I laid down last night and felt worn out and used
So I went on that back porch and played a good ol' blues
Yeah I laid down last night and felt worn out and used

Well I laid down last night and put on my favorite song
Yeah I laid down last night and put on my favorite song
So I went on that back porch and played it all night long
Yeah I laid down last night a put on my favorite song

Lets do a little porch stompin' now
Lets do a little porch stompin' now
Lets do a little porch stompin' now
Well I'm stompin' on that porch a thousand times an hour
Lets do a little porch stompin' now
Track Name: Believin' is Hard
Last Call!
Your requests better come in soon
Listen now
Don't you be a loon
Give us the fire that's burning in your soul
'Cause he'll take us home soon
This whole world is pretty dull

Well, I disagree
This world's alright with me
Yeah, your plan sounds easy
But believin' is hard

They said, "Oh no, sir!"
Looking at you, the raven is right at your door
We got one word for you
Inferno—need we say more?
Listen here, Boy
You're a rose hanging upside down
You're lost, but with us you are found

Well, I disagree
Being lost is being free
Yeah, your plan sounds easy
But believin' is hard

I couldn't believe my eyes
They just turned and walked away
Started building a wall between us
Telling me I'll pay for it all some day
That's alright. I still love 'em
But they just don't understand
There's a million of these gods
And they're all reaching out their hands

So sorry to disagree
I want to make you all happy
Yeah, your plan sounds easy
But believin' is hard
Track Name: Makes You Wanna
She's the one that always lives it up
Makes you smile until you never stop
Always makin' sure we all have fun
Wether you dance the night away or swimming in the sun
She's gotta laugh that makes you wanna laugh
She's gotta dance that makes you wanna dance
She's got a heart that makes you wanna love
She's gotta mind that makes you wanna take a chance

Oh I know just how she feels
when she gets angry
And never sees the real
She gives me love
And tells me everything's alright

And when I'm lonely
She reminds me I'm not the only
And doesn't just tell me, but she shows me
That she loves me everyday of my life

Brings me up
When I'm feeling down
Makes me stop
When I've got that frown
Always making sure I've got that smile on
Whether I'm down another day or living in denial, son
She's gotta laugh that makes you wanna laugh
She's gotta dance that makes you wanna dance
She's gotta a heart that makes you wanna love
She's gotta mind that makes you wanna take a chance

Oh I know just how she feels
when she gets angry
And never sees the real
She gives me love
And tells me everything's alright

And when I'm lonely
She reminds me I'm not the only
And doesn't just tell me, but she shows me
That she loves me everyday of my life
