Track Name: Gone
Gone, gone for so long/ can't remember where my heart belongs

On a whim/ on a dare/ I'd take you higher/ I'd take you anywhere
Like a cat up a tree/ I'd run from you like I'd run from anything

On a limb with a chainsaw in my hands
bottomed out with the tires in the sand

Chorus

Toe the line unaware/ I'd love you blind like I see what's really there
Like a game/ checker board/ I'd suss you out and then seek a new reward

Fallow fields where your crops once used to plant
Move along once I empty all your plans

Chorus

Racing away all the love that I chase/ pushed around to stay in one place/ I got you if I want/ winning the fight but loosing the face/ pushed around to stay in one place/ I got you/ do I want?
Track Name: Lighten Up
If you need too much of a real good thing/ and you need to hit your head just to see/ how low that low can be/ then you know the reasons/ reasons why I sing

Half as bad as a little piddle puddle of ice can be/ and as sad as you're ever really gonna see me/ I'm so glad to have lightened up

To all those real bad things/ a million ways to Boston and all of them sing/ with truth, life, love and liberty/ but I'm running out of star light/ star light to see

Just how bad a little piddle puddle of ice can be/ and as sad as you're ever really gunna see me/ I'm so glad to have lightened up

If you want to make it, make it in this world/ then you gotta fake it, fake it in this world
If you want to make it, make it in this world/ then you gotta love a boy or a girl/ and care for them

Half as bad as a little piddle puddle of ice can be/ and as sad as you're ever really gonna see me/ I'm so glad to have lightened up
