Track Name: The Opportunist
The opportunist takes away from everyone she knows
She studies what all others have and wants it for herself
Doesn’t care who she steps on
Doesn’t give a damn
The opportunist takes away from everyone
The opportunist takes away
The opportunist takes away
The opportunist takes away from everyone
Track Name: 35's Got You Down
So you wanna know what’s ahead
But everything now that’s been said is a question
Take the day as it comes
You’re 35, you’re in the slums

Just be a man
Oh be a man

Cover your head from the rain
Wipe it off and if it hits you
Don’t feel no pain
And don’t question 35
It’s just depression
You’ll survive

Be a man
Just be a man
Oh be a man
Just be a man

Copin’ with a bottle or a prayer
You gotta get it any how any way you can
Sink or swim
Thick as sand
Don’t be a baby
Oh, just be a man

Be a man
Just be a man
Oh be a man
Just be a man
Track Name: Hey, I've Been There Too
Hey, it’s alright to shine
You won’t let him down

Hey, you said times were hard
Everybody knows it’s real

And I want you to know
I’ve been there before

Sometimes people say mean words
I saw you on the street
Looking down

And I want you to know
I’ve been there before

Coping, it’s a daily thing
Guilt for feeling good
Time to change
Track Name: The Ocean
I dream about the ocean
down south to the gulf of mexico
that’s where my mama had a baby
i was born in a little town east of the biloxi wind

a town of believers
waiting on their catch from the sea
painters, potters in that place
like good people of faith
waiting for their colors to arrive from the sky, seers

the ocean is in my veins
and it’s stuck like the color red
the water comes and goes
like some people that I know
comes and goes
comes and goes

i dream about the ocean
down south to the gulf of mexico
that’s where my mama had a baby
i was born in a little town east of the biloxi wind
Track Name: Leaving In My Blood
I’ve got leavin’ in my blood
and restless in my bones
though, this california sun has slowed me down, just like you said it would

you’ll be followed by my song
as i drive away tomorrow
moving through the shadows of the lilac trees that line your street

you said i’m like a riddle ridin’ in the wind
singin’ songs to strangers in every town i’m in
but this song that i sing is a heart that’s been broken
it weeps like a sad willow tree
i know that you’re looking for love that is lasting
so please don’t wait on me

i’ve got leavin’ in my blood
even though you’re on my mind
i’ll swallow your memory
just give me some time

you said i’m like a riddle ridin’ in the wind
singin’ songs to strangers in every town i’m in
but this song that i sing is a heart that’s been broken
it weeps like a sad willow tree
i know that you’re looking for love that is lasting
so please don’t wait on me


i’ve got leavin’ in my blood
and restless in my bones
though, this california sun has slowed me down, just like you said it
Track Name: Make Everything Bright
A cold bottle to your lips
can you tell me what it is
that makes me want to want you
again and again

Hold on to me tightly
don’t take me lightly
turn my charm back on
til we’re all but gone

i hear a sad song behind a happy conversation
what a perfect situation
i could die like this
with a cold cold bottle to your lips

Stay with me forever
follow me back home
tell me a funny story
even if it’s wrong

Let’s get right with each other
let’s get mad at the world
let’s get under the covers
til we’re all but gone

it’s a warm warm feeling when i follow my temptation
what a perfect situation
i could die like this
with a cold cold bottle to your lips

make everything last
make everything right
make everything go away
make everything bright

with a cold cold bottle to your lips
Track Name: Henry John
Alone in the dark
with colors of gold
away from the past
away from it all

But something’s not right
with the moon on my back
pulling me in
this moment won’t last

Can’t get away from the blue in your eyes
i am finally awake
the sun is so bright
starting again with the hope that’s been found
kicking me up when i was so down
henry john is here
henry john is here

The people have come
to cast out the blood
it’s crazy in here
but faith has arrived

The smiles that i see
once made me a boy
now it makes sense
i’m ready for love

Can’t get away from the blue in your eyes
i am finally awake
the sun is so bright
starting again with the hope that’s been found
kicking me up when i was so down
henry john is here
henry john is here
henry john is here
henry john is here
Track Name: Blanket of Stars
Hey, don’t i know you from somewhere
Hey, don’t i know you from back there
we shared a particular moment
under a blanket of stars

mmmm

i think we were lovers at one time
it’s thick from the dust of a stage line
the curtain is dense it won’t open
pullin’ the weight world

mmmm
oh, oh

there is a piece of the broken
puzzle we put back unspoken
tellin’ me things i remember
tellin’ me things that i did

ooooo

there’s a black bedroom sheet
that covers my mind
it’s made of silk and slips through my fingers
leaving me nothin’ behind

ooooo

your pretty eyes look familiar
i’ve stared into them once before
it’s been a long time since we’ve spoken
it’s been a long time was it cold?

hey don’t i know you from somewhere
hey don’t i know you from back there
we shared a particular moment
under a blanket of stars
Track Name: Unavailable Man
breathing
and a night with no tears
wouldn’t it be nice
if you were here

another
another misunderstandin’
miles away
gone again

please don’t dance with another and make her cry
please don’t kiss another and make her die
unavailable man
unavailable man

find
find it in yourself
to be so kind
and put it on a shelf

so no one
no one else will fall heavy
into your love
into your honey

please don’t dance with another and make her cry
please don’t kiss another and make die
unavailable man
unavailable man
Track Name: You're A Sorry One
Some days I wanna reach out and ask you why
Other days I wanna grab you by the hair and pull
It came as a surprise, for you, that I already knew.

I remember when you said it was wrong, when it happened to someone else
You put it aside, the convenience is working for you, how nice.
Ohhh….You’re a sorry one.

It’s easy to do when there’s nothing there
A hole so deep, no sense of care
Turn around and face the sun
One day it will happen to you and I’ll be gone.
Ohhhh…. You’re a sorry one.


So close, for so long, now you hide
It’ll be a long time, before I notice your face again
That’s fine. I know now not to call you a friend.
That’s fine, I know now that you left me for him
mmmm….You’re a sorry one.

It’s easy to do when there’s nothing there
A hole so deep, no sense of care
Turn around and face the sun
One day it will happen to you and I’ll be gone.
You’re a sorry one.
