Carousel
Been spinning in circles for too long now
Got on your ride and I can't slow down
Started in heaven, left me in hell
Feel like a clown on your carousel
 
Over and over the same old song
This broken record's been playin' too long
We make up and break up, you leave me confused
Say you want me, cut me loose
 
Lift me up, tear me down
We can't find the middle ground
Push me left, pull me right
First you love me then you want a fight
Been dizzy since the day I fell
Spinning round on your carousel
 
Hooked me that summer down by the shore
After one night I was begging for more
Said you loved me, changed your mind
Left me cold, now you're cryin' 
 
(chorus)
 
Been spinning in circles for too long now
Got on your ride and I can't slow down
Started in heaven, left me in hell
Feel like a clown on your carousel
 
(chorus)

 

 

Compass
I want to go where you go
I love to be by your side
Don't need a map on this road
Your love's my guide

 

Wind in our hair, what could compare
I'm a passenger, you get me there

North south, up down, written in the stars
We'll go the distance you're a compass for my heart
East west, each test, never gonna part
We'll go the distance you're a compass for my heart
 
Just one look in your eyes, I know where I belong
Ain't a cloud in the sky, Dj playing our song
 
Singing as we ride, through paradise
Hand in hand, seeing what we find

 

North south, up down, written in the stars
We'll go the distance you're a co pass for my heart
East west, each test, never gonna part
We'll go the distance you're a compass for my heart

 

 

Get Out Of The Way
Hey Sunday driver pick up the pace
You're movin' too slow in the fast lane
If I'm late for work, I just might get fired
Hit the gas or turn the wheel
Give me relief from the rage I feel
Pounding the dash, about to lose my mind
While you're just....
 
Cruising, leader in a long parade
Horns and headlights begging you to get right
Why you hitting the brake
Move it, buddy I ain't got all day 
Kick it in high gear, let us all by here
Get outta the way
 
Hey Richard Petty, move it along
I've got a train to catch and it's gonna be gone
You can see the sights just as good from the right hand lane
It's just a few more miles to my exit sign
I pray you don't have the same thing in mind
Chatting on the phone, checking out your brand new shades
Just......
 
(chorus)

 

It's a highway to hell 6 in the mornin'
Riding your ass, blaring my horn
Losing my mind on a caffeine buzz 
Stuck behind you doing 51....just
 
(chorus)

 

Hope
Lately it's been hard, you're only seein' flaws
I made a few mistakes I'm sure 
But I'm doing my best, to fix this mess 
Please don't walk out the door

I'm hanging on the last bit of hope I know
Trying to make you stay, but you wanna go
Tell me it'll be alright, baby don't cut the line
I'm hanging on hope tonight 

We could start again, go back to being friends
Just kiss me, show a sign of life
I'm pleading on the floor, swear I'll give you more
Your words are sharp as a knife 
 
(chorus)

 

I can't let you go, I'm clinging for dear life
Praying there's a chance I can change your mind
Don't shut the door, break it off this way
Don't give up, have a little faith

 

(chorus)

 

Roughing It
Power's out, we're here in the dark
Its pouring rain, the wind's blowing hard
Phone's dead, we've got no heat
No show on the big tv 
 
Serviceman, take your time
We're doing just fine
 
Blanket on the floor, candle lit
Red wine, trading sips
Keeping busy with a long slow kiss
Wrapped in the dark as the cold wind whips
We don't mind roughing it

10 pm, my cell's running low
Grilling dogs on the Coleman stove
Lines are down, it's flooded in the street
We're stuck alone and that's fine by me
Serviceman, take your time
We're doing just fine 

 

(chorus)
 
Right now, there's no one else in the world
No distractions, it's just me and my girl
 
Serviceman, take your time
We're doing just fine

 

(chorus)

 

Long Way Home
This road's not supposed to lead here
Just a mile ago we were planning next year
Things change fast, don't last
You're here then you're gone
Thought this road was taking us home
1:15 had the afternoon off
The sky went gray, fate changed lanes
And the world hit us head on
Hang in there honey help is on the way
Don't leave me here alone
Try to stay awake
Hold on to my hand I won't let you go
Wish we'd taken the long way home
This was just our Sunday ride
Now I'm chasing the ambulance lights
Life takes turns, throws us curves
Now I'm praying they can save my wife
Rain is pouring down in sheets
Like the world is weeping along with me
This aint real, please don't steal her from me
She's my whole life
Hang in there honey help is on the way
Don't leave me here alone
Try to stay awake
Hold on to my hand I won't let you go
Wish we'd taken the long way home

 

Crazy Back
I miss the crazy nights we snuck out late, throwing stones at your window pane
Raising hell in the summer rain, down on the railway line
Your daddy's beer and cigarettes, drawing hearts in the window sweat
Hookinbg up in that Chevy bed as the train rolled by....let's
 
Slip slide down memory lane
Let the voices tell us go insane
Baby jump on, just get on top
We're all alone there ain't no reason to stop
Like a freight train off the track
Get some of that crazy back
 
I know you must be tired it's Tuesday night, but you're turning me on with your hair up high
Climb in bring your wild side, I know just where to go
Tell your boss something's going round, we'll pop thwe gate to our old playground
Slide close turn the headlights down, wait to hear the wistle blow

(chorus)
(chorus)

 

Battleground
How did we end up here
Empty and insincere
Guess the directions you gave were not so clear
It's been a lonely ride
Left all the love behind
Off in the distance, got no more left to find
I'm gonna turn around
I've been lost for too long now
Trying to find a place that can't be found
Some peace on this battleground
Promises you can't keep
A hole in my heart so deep
I'm steering clear of the wreck that you're making me
I'm gonna turn around
I've been lost for too long now
Trying to find a place that can't be found
I'm gonna change my way
You're not gonna make me stay
Watch as I'm walking out for the last time now
Right off of this battleground
No more wars left to win
Between the lines
Won't be drawing me in
In one more time
I'm gonna turn around
I've been lost for too long now
Trying to find a place that can't be found
I'm gonna change my way
You're not gonna make me stay
Watch as I'm walking out for the last time now
Right off of this battleground
