    Settle It Down
    Watch the Official Music Video on YouTube

    Settle it down
    You’re not on your own
    It’s just a little bit of time with a heavier load
    Loosen up baby
    Have a seat and unwind
    It’ll get better
    It’s just a matter of time

    You’re young and kinda free
    You think it’s meant to be
    Everything that comes to pass
    You feel it’s gonna last
    You’ve got to fall to pieces to figure it out
    Oh, who’s judging you
    Baby who’s judging who
    You feel so broke, so black, so blue
    You wanna be somebody, be somebody else
    But you’ve gotta realize
    It’s all about you, honey

    (Chorus)

    You say it gets too rough
    But everyday I call your bluff
    Then you see
    Don’t forget to count your blessings
    You’re really not that old
    It’s what they say, what you’re told
    You’ve still got time
    Just steal that time
    Don’t let it get you down
    Heartache move into town
    You’ve got a fresh restart deep in that pounding part
    You’ve just got to roll with the punches
    Hey now, then you’ll realize
    It’s all about you, honey, you know it is

    Cause when it all is said and done
    You won’t be blaming anyone
    It’s in your hands you’ll make it there
    It’ll get better with time
    It’s just a matter of time

    Not Even Here

    I’m not the one you were thinking of
    When I gave you that first glance
    When we set off for romance
    Did we ever really have a chance
    Now I don’t regret
    But I can’t forget

    We could waste all our time
    Let heartache unwind
    We could give it another chance

    You’re not the one I’m still thinking of
    Though it happens time to time
    Girl you up and you cross my mind
    You ain’t ever really got a chance

    We could waste all our time
    Let heartache unwind
    We could give it another chance
    Or we could just let this die
    Sign off and cut all ties
    Like were not even here

    We’ve made our mistakes
    We’ve seen it through ’til the end of the day
    I don’t blame you
    But I can’t even look at you in the same way
    Cause it’s over, we’ve moved on, it’s over

    Why waste all our time
    Let heartache unwind
    And give it another chance
    We’re both just so tired
    And our hearts aren’t on fire
    We’re not even here

    Love, American Style

    Every night she’s filled with another desire
    Baby walks a little bit too close to the fire
    And she’s gonna get burned if she doesn’t run away from the flame
    First one to know about the next big thrill
    Takes a bit too much for her to get her fill
    Now she’s looking at me and calling out my name

    She says she thinks she’s in love with me
    It’s just the things that I got
    She’s thinking she wants
    Thinking she needs
    She says she thinks she’s in love with me but I know
    She ain’t taking me home
    It’s not what I want
    It’s not what I need
    It’s Love, American Style

    She’s gotta have it all gotta have it now
    She knows what she wants and she knows just how
    To get just what she’s after
    She stays by your side ’til you go broke
    And when she leave it’s just a part of the joke
    And all she’s leaving behind is a trail of disaster

    (Chorus)

    Her pretty little face won’t be denied
    Sorry sweetheart but I’m just not the guy to fall into your trap
    Well look here woman I’m gonna have to pass
    On your little offer cause you’re moving too fast
    Looks like you’re going home alone tonight baby

    Hey baby
    1-2-3-4 gonna have you coming back for more
    Oh she thinks she needs it
    oh she thinks she wants it

    Come On
    Watch the Official Music Video on YouTube

    Woah oho come on
    Woah oho

    You know I love this city
    Yeah I love this place
    But things could have been better
    For a number of days
    You’re the kind of girl
    To make a boy want her on his mind

    I’ve been walking around
    Had my head held down
    And my eyes glued shut
    And my idle mind
    Has been no friend of mine
    And my hearts been hard to find
    For a little while

    Come on a little closer
    So I can feel arms wide open
    And I’ll fall inside
    Come on a little closer
    So I can feel arms wide open
    And I’ll fall

    I found the sweetest thing
    Well I must confess
    Yeah she looks real good
    In her Sunday best
    When she says those words
    I get this feeling
    That gives me something to believe in

    Now I’m walkin’ around
    With my head held high
    Looking to the sky
    But my idle mind
    Is still no friend of mine
    With my heart out on the line
    Having a good time

    She says wait don’t go anywhere
    She says we’ll get there soon but we’re not there yet
    Won’t you come on a little closer
    Come on a little closer
    And fall inside
    Well I’ll fall inside

    Madison

    I’ve got so much faith I’m going to push you away,
    You know it scares the hell out of me.
    Don’t wanna drown you in a sea of pretty little words
    And downfalls of worry
    Convinced I’m walking on ice
    That’s been cracked since the day I met you
    Just one wrong step and I’ve lost my world
    To the depths that I’d fall into

    You know I could come apart
    I could lose every bit of me
    If you start tugging at the seams
    Oh, tugging at the seams
    Don’t pull away from me

    Hey Madison
    I can’t let you go
    Hey Madison
    I think it’s time I let you know
    My minds made up
    You’re the one for me
    You’re the one for me

    You fell in love with a boy
    That chu’ wasn’t expecting to come along
    You gave your heart
    But you didn’t even know it was in your hands
    You’re scared to commit yourself
    Cause something feeling so right, sugar must be wrong
    But you’ve gone and done it now
    And you’ve finally found the place where you belong

    You know we could come apart
    We could lose every bit of this
    If you start tugging at the seams
    Oh, tugging at the seams
    Don’t pull away from me

    (Chorus)

    That you’re the one for me
    We’re only got right now
    We’ve only got right now
    To start forever
    I can’t lose you Madison

    Hey Madison (Hey Madison)
    I think it’s time I let you know
    Hey Madison (Hey Madison)
    I can’t let you go
    Hey Madison (Hey Madison)
    I think it’s time I let you know
    I can’t lose you Madison
    No, I can’t lose you
    I can’t lose you Madison
    I can’t lose you
    My mind’s made up
    You’re the one for me
    You’re the one for me

    Stay
    Watch the Official Music Video on YouTube

    Well there’s only an hour
    Between you and I
    Gladly I’d travel
    Every night
    It gets me to you
    Oh the things I love to do
    I sat there last evening
    Right by your side
    Wrote you notes
    Looked deep in your gorgeous eyes
    Oh the things we love to do

    Won’t you stay?
    Can’t you stay a little longer
    Oh I know, I know it makes it grow fonder
    Won’t you stay
    Can’t I stay a little longer, please?

    And I will stay all night
    Fearing the morning light (you know that’s right)
    And I will pull up the covers
    So we can both hide up-under
    Before I pack up and say goodbye
    It’s only a matter of time

    Well we walk the fine line
    Between hi and goodbye
    It feels a little rushed
    Every time
    But at least I’m with you
    No matter what we do
    And maybe if the stars decide to align
    You’ll be my life for good
    Setting my world on fire
    I see futures in you
    Is that what we meant to do?

    (Pre Chorus)

    (Chorus)

    Alright
    Come on now
    How ‘bout this time we stay all night, uhhuh
    Get back under the covers, baby
    Come on!

    (Chorus)

    Years

    I’m learning how to change
    I don’t like it cause it feels a little strange
    I’m making my way
    It’s easy to fight it when nothing ever stays the same
    It’s taken its toll
    I can feel it in my heart, in my veins, in my bones and my soul
    I feel like I’m just getting old
    Much too old to carry this load around

    It seems like yesterday
    You and me oh we were here to stay
    We set off to find something
    And we came up knowing how it has to be, yeah
    Some got their vices, some got their wives
    Well baby we’ve got to live our lives

    Years they move on
    Yeah they come and pass
    I’m still finding ways to make it last
    Tears they may fall
    Hands they may fold
    I know you won’t ever let me do this alone

    I know I struggle a little bit with the thought of losing it
    Where I’ve come from, where I’ve gone
    Where I’m going, will it ever be enough

    Years they may pass
    I’m still fighting
    I know where I’m gonna go
    We’ll keep moving on

     

    Timing Is Everything
    You tiptoe around in high heels
    But you pretend you don’t know how you feel
    You wanna dance, you think you’ll dance
    To try and dance your way around it (around it)

    I’m in a daze, girl I’ve got the blues
    Oh, you make me see red I’m seeing yellow too
    But I wanna stay and you don’t want me gone
    You know it (you know it)

    You hint and tease, oh baby please
    If you feel it you should just say so

    I think you know but you ain’t saying
    Why would we waste all our days
    If you could would you please stop playing
    Cause timing is everything

    Why you act like you’re so innocent
    Cause we all know that that ain’t your real intent
    We built it up, why bring it down
    Everything you wanted you’ve already found

    Price You Pay

    I thought that you were gonna be the one
    
The saving stitch to keep it all from coming undone
    I hoped that you were gonna be the change
    Not the very same ole’ burned out flame
    
Can you tell me how it got this far

    Riding along, not speaking in the car
    
I’d grab your hand
    But I don’t wanna feel like less of a man

    
Love’s not the only price you pay
    
There’s so much more we’d have to face

    I can feel it ripping in to me
    
Gripping every breath I breathe
    
Tell me please this is a mistake
    
I can prove it baby, the answer ain’t escape

    
Why you wanna run away

    Baby we’re allowed to feel differently
    Just cause I can’t read your mind
    
Don’t mean I ain’t on your side
    
When things start to get a little crazy

    
I know it’s taken its toll on us
    But don’t give up,
    Baby don’t give up

    We can take control of us
    
Just don’t give up,
    
Baby don’t give up
