Track Name: Feelin' All Right
I am headin, out to California
With my moto-cycle in tow
I got my 6 string riding riding shotgun
And Lord I'm grinnin' from head to toe
Yea a old men asked me
"Where ya' headin' with that load"
I said "I wish I could tell ya' brotha'
but the truth is I don't know"

I'm looking for love, I'm lookin for life
I'm looking for that bigger meaning to break the glass ceiling Oh I
I'm lookin for love, I'm lookin for life,
I'm lookin for that new sensation, that old libation
a new occupation called feelin alright

I am chasin' that dream of old Bob Dylan
Im ridin' on the wave of pure ambition
That bird of youth, will soon fly away and pass me by
I'ma breath in salty ocean air I'ma reach all the way to the sky

I don't care, Anythings better than before
I don't care I cannot live a lie
I know that I'll find out the secret I am lookin for
If I turned around now part of me will die
Cuz I'd rather risk it trying to be the man I was built to be
cuz I aint gon die workin for the man in some God damned factory!!

ooh darlin we've been here for ages

ooh darlin we aint seen no changes

ooh darlin we've touched all the bases

now darlin we're back to the the races

And its back and forth and forth and back
racing round this one way track
She steals my heart and paints it black
I steal hers and then we're back

Ooh darlin we both got the itch

Ooh darlin lets pull out the stitch

Ooh darlin the trailors off the hitch

Ooh darlin' aint love such a bitch

And its back and forth and forth and back
racing round this one way track
She steals my heart and paints it black
I steal hers and then we're back

ooh Darlin' I can't run no more

My tires are flat my pedals to the floor

Ooh darlin' this hearts gettin' sore

Ooh darlin can we shut!!! the dooooooor?

its been back and forth and forth and back
but this car just drove off the track
I'll fix this heart that you made crack
I'm movin' forth and I aint lookin' back

Track Name: Battle In My Head
I can't tell you how I'm feelin
I don't want you to know
Somethin's changed inside of me
and I'm prayin it don't show
What use to be is no longer
And I wish it wasn't so
But i've done all I can do now
I must reap what i have sown

And The Past is Dead and Gone
I can't undo these things I've done
All that I ask is your re-sent-ments pass
As I sail into the sun
The War for your heart might me over my dear,
but the battle in my head has just begun

I wish that I could go back
I'd have a different view
I'd change my whole perspective
I'd change my whole you
I'd bring you pretty flowers
when every day was through
but hindsights 20/20
and my visions locked on you


Even if you took me in
I wouldn't know, i wouldn't know where to begin
I'd tell you I was sorry, I'd tell you I was wrong
I'd write a pretty poem or I'd sing a happy song
but I knoooooowwwww
Yes I knoooowwww

That the past is dead and gone
I can't undo these things I've done
And all that I ask is your resentments pass
as I sail into the sun
The war for your heart might me over my dear,
but the battle in my head, yes the battle in my head,
whoa this battle in my head has just...ended.

Track Name: If You Aint Got Love
You could drive a maserati.
You could be a super hottie.
You could have the perfect body,
But that aint nothin!

You could live in that mansion up in the hills.
You could have stacks of hundred dollar bills.
You could take all of the right pills,
but that aint nothin!

If you aint got Love, Love Love
If you aint got Love Love Love
If you aint got Love Love Love
You aint got nothin at all

You could be a CEO
Or a star on the radio
You could play a sold out show
but that aint nothin

Everyone could know your name
You could win at every game
The earth covered with your fame
but that aint nothing

Cuz You can't take it with you when you die
Gold plated angels won't ever fly
You could waste all your days chasing that golden cup
but If you want it all you've got to give it all up

Just for Love, Love Love
Just for Love Love Love
cuz If you aint got Love Love Love

Track Name: Don't Give Up On Love
you could meet her on the subway, you could meet her on the bus
you could see her at a protest rally, puttin up a fuss
you could meet her at a market, you could meet her on the street
you could meet her hear tonight while your groovin' to the beat

Don't give up on love
It could be right around the corner
it could hitcha in the head from above
No! No! Don't give up on love
There's someone out there just for you
yes you will find love and I will too

You could meet him at the church house
Gettin' his praise on (oooooh)
You could meet him at dance club
Lookin' like Don Juan (uh huh uh huh)
You could meet him at a yoga class
Doin' the down dog (oommm)
You meet him down by the river,
Just sittin' like a frog prince on a log

Don't give up on love
It could be right around the corner
it could hitcha in the head from above
No! No! Don't give up on love
There's someone out there just for you
yes you will find love and I will too

Yea I've had my heart broken, a time or three
Everyone gets lonely, we all need some company
but every day we wake up, we get another chance,
love might find you sitting down, but I suggest you dance!!!

I'm sayin' Don't give up on love
It could be right around the corner
it could hitcha in the head from above
No! No! Don't give up on love
There's someone out there just for you
yes you will find love and I will too

Track Name: Out of My Control
Mmm mmm mmmm mmmm
Mmm mmm mmmm mmmm

Lookin' through dirty glasses as all the water passes me by, bye bye
Moonshine beaming' down, nothin's what I'm thinkin' bout
cuz this is good enough, for me now.
Who says life gets any better than this?

No one knows what tomorrow holds
its rolled up in God's big scrolls and thats all right by me
I got no place to be but I'd sure enjoy some company
yea we could just sit awhile, and talk, and I'd tell you that

I've come to my conclusion that most people are illusions
so I close my eyes and smile because I know,
it's out of my controooool,

oooh oooh oooh oooh

I feel so small in this big field, to natures forces I must yield
but its when I melt our shield that my inner wounds healed
My minds at peace for now at least
my soul will have the greatest feast on your love, on your love cuz baby

I've come to my conclusion that most people are illusions
so I close my eyes and smile because I know,
It's out of my controooool ooh ooh ooh
oooh oooh oooh oooh

Come on just let go, whoa oh

Its here i drift back bye and bye, dreaming dreams of soaring high
watching swifts swoop by in this South Dakota sky
the winds of change have rearranged my thoughts
and you may think me strange but that's ok, cuz I'm home here on the range
where I've…

I've come to my conclusion that most knowledge is illusion so I close my eyes and smile because I know
It's out of my control
