Track Name: What I Want
What I Want

All my troubles feel so far

I can’t take
A path not meant to be taken
And I can’t climb
When my body’s aching

Given time
I can hear the words you’re saying
Peace of mind
From the road that I was paving

And I want you, and I want you, and I want you
Because you do what you do so well
And I want you, and I want you, and I want you
Because you do what you do so well

The more I fight
The more I find my world is shaking
Dark as night
Is the world I was creating

And I want you, and I want you, and I want you
Because you do what you do so well
And I want you, and I want you, and I want you
Because you do what you do so well

What I want
Is to take what I’ve been given
Walk my way
To the life I should be livin’

And I want you, and I want you, and I want you
Because you do what you do so well
And I want you, and I want you, and I want you
Because you do what you do so well

Track Name: You're Gone (Back to LA)
You’re Gone (Back to LA)

All these young ones
With nothing and no one
And all lost people turn to the sun
While searching

I don't want to be like those people anymore
All I want to see is you walk through my door

But you're gone
Back to LA you're gone
But you’re gone
Back to LA you're gone

All this time gone by
And it's finally time
So speak my name need no alibi
You're cunning

I don't want to be like those people anymore
All I want to see is you walk through my door

But you're gone
Back to LA you're gone
But you’re gone
Back to LA you're gone

Go on kiss and tell
You know I do it
Oh so well sweet, sweet music
Ummm like honey

I don't want to be like those people anymore
All I want to see is you walk through my door

But you're gone
Back to LA you're gone
But you’re gone
Back to LA you're gone

Track Name: The House of the Rising Sun
There is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
And it's been the ruin of many a poor girl
And God I know I'm one

My mother was a tailor
She sewed my new bluejeans
My father was a gamblin' man
Down in New Orleans

Now the only thing a gambler needs
Is a suitcase and trunk
And the only time he's satisfied
Is when he's on, a drunk

Oh mother tell your children
Not to do what I have done
Spend your lives in sin and misery
In the House of the Rising Sun

Well, I got one foot on the platform
The other foot on the train
I'm goin' back to New Orleans
To wear that ball and chain

Well, there is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
And it's been the ruin of many a poor girl
And God I know I'm one

Track Name: Time
Time

Crossing boarders crossing lines
I’m crossing time
Making a wave parting the sea
Dispelling the myth that surrounds me

Oh down we go

I’ve got a bad bad feeling
That the rains about to come
And the water keeps revealing
I am not a fortunate one

Oh down we go

I’ve got a bad bad feeling

Who knows where the river goes
Who knows when it’s drowning time
Who knows why my heart beats slow
Your heart keeps beating mine

Who knows where the river goes
Who knows when it’s drowning time
Who knows why my heart beats slow
Your heart keeps beating mine

Oh down we go

I’ve got a bad bad feeling

Crossing boarders crossing lines
I’m crossing time
