Track Name: A Fifth of Elvis
Let it go, to all the ghosts that break me down tonight,
Let it out, if that's what you're feeling then time is on my side,
And all these things are what I say if I were face to face,
But you're just a ghost on your behalf I never had a place,

And I go back girl to the way it used to be,
And I go back girl to the way it used to be,

Oh my love, you know I take the things that hurt,
Oh this pain, it ain't good enough, it ain't good enough,
And a thief stole my heart as it took away your chance,
And all this pain, it ain't good enough, it ain't good enough
Oh yeah..

Wake up, it's half past your youth I'm giving you my last advice,
You better watch out, 'cause you might regret it I got no sympathy tonight,
And all this time I heard your tales about your sad regrets,
But the roof caved in and the truth came out I never know what's best,

And I go back girl to the way it used to be,
And I go back girl to the way it used to be,

Oh my love, you know I take the things that hurt,
Oh this pain, it ain't good enough it, it ain't good enough,
And a thief stole my heart as it took away your chance,
And all this pain, it ain't good enough, it ain't good enough,

Here I am with my sad cafe lines,
With these words directed to you,
A cold sweat that just won't break,
I remember how you moved..

Oh my love, you know I take the things that hurt,
Oh this pain, it ain't good enough it, it ain't good enough,
And a thief stole my heart as it took away your chance,
And all this pain, it ain't good enough, it ain't good enough
Yeah!

No it ain't good enough for me,
It ain't good enough for me,

Don't call it a comeback..
Track Name: Boardwalk
I seen lonely teardrops rest in your eyes,
I been longing to slip my skin and start over tonight,
And I wait for you my love,

And these I cannot stand,
You know I hate this company,
As I get the nerve to stare,
My sentiment comes over me,

And I wait for you my love,

Was someone taking your heart?
Was someone taking your brains?
I've been here times before just like you did,
Bitter years from the youth we waste,
And we run out of time,
See I worry all the time,
And I wait for you my love,

I got another confession to make,
You see I caught the shakes,
Struggling for a breath with the blood on my tongue,
Like a nervous man waiting to wait,
And I sing for you my love,

And all this youth that you waste,
It keeps you wanting more,
No it wasn't what you dreamed,
But it haunts your troubled soul,
And I wait for you my love,

Was someone taking your heart?
Was someone taking your brains?
I've been here times before just like you did,
Bitter years from the youth we waste,
And we run out of time,
See I worry all the time,
And I wait for you my love,

I seen a picture of my daddy on his wedding day,
I didn't recognize my ma with that smile on her face,
And I come home late when they're all asleep,
As I stumble through these walls,
Sympathy don't show your face tonight,
I got a picture of your smile that puts a bruise on my mind,
As I get the nerve to stare looking hard
But I've only got the nerve to stare
With the blood on my tongue
Track Name: He's A Good Kid
22 years and my life is still,
Take a look around you mister I swear you'll have your fill,
And I'll tell you a tale about heartache and the loss of faith,
I can see you're sorta troubled and from the looks of your face, You ain't got no money you ain't got no place,
But I swear you ain't seen heartache, until you've said hi to me,

Hey player look around take a look outside,
You know I just wasn't made for these times,
I won't pretend to understand, I wont be telling no lies,
And what you don't understand, is what you criticize.

Hey Mr. Good Soul, won't you tell me about your sins?
Did you kill the one you love?
Did you push her away?
Were you waiting to start over again?
Hey, he's a good kid,
Nah he ain't the flashy kind,
I won't pretend to understand, I won't be telling no lies,
I ain't ever wanna cross your mind

And what I got to feeling was total shame,
Tasting the salt on your tongue and understanding her slang,
But it humors me to see it, it just don't matter to me,
Then I remember what my daddy said to do,
At times like this when I was feeling blue,
He said, "Don't think twice son, it's gonna be alright.."

Hey player look around take a look outside,
You know I just wasn't made for these times,
I won't pretend to understand, I wont be telling no lies,
And what you don't understand, is what you criticize.

Hey Mr. Good Soul, won't you tell me about your sins?
Did you kill the one you love?
Did you push her away?
Were you waiting to start over again?
Hey, he's a good kid,
Nah he ain't the flashy kind,
I won't pretend to understand, I won't be telling no lies
I ain't ever wanna cross your mind

Hey Mr. Good Soul, won't you tell me about your sins?
Did you kill the one you love?
Did you push her away?
Were you waiting to start over again?
Hey, he's a good kid,
Nah he ain't the flashy kind,
I won't pretend to understand, I won't be telling no lies
I ain't ever wanna cross your mind

Wishing her heartache keeps her alive,
Cause it's just too easy to die,
I know what's her haunting her mind,
I know what scares her tonight,
A lost lover girl now that I see around
I don't care if her pulse goes cold,
But I want her pain 'till she's old,
Don't you look at my face, don't come around this place
I hear the low spark high heeled girls,
I look good without a shirt.
Track Name: I Live Like You
We were young last night,
And all was quiet through the county line,
And I felt just like your friend,
Felt just like your friend,
Through this bitterness and pain,
Your tin-man heart, it rusted in the rain,
If you only had a heart,
If you only had a heart,

And I know I live like you,
With so much time to lose,
And I know I live like you,
Click your red heels baby,
Cause it's time to go home,

Just rest your quiet eyes,
And bring your chest close to mine,
I never knew just what you felt,
I never knew just what you felt,
So take the things that hurt,
And take the things that bruise your mind,
And treat it like a lady, the time has come baby,

And I know I live like you,
With so much time to lose,
And I know I live like you,
Click your red heels baby,
Cause it's time to go home,

It's time to go home,
It's time to go home,

Just rest your quiet eyes,
And bring your chest close to mine,
I never knew just what you felt,
I never knew just what you felt,
Track Name: Twang '56
I was born my father's son,
I was raised into his ache,
I was stranded all alone,
Without a friend to make,
I remember how the music played as it was blasting through my ford,
I remember how my soul was eased when his keys hit the chords,

If I could be forgiven, for my casanova ways,
And the sounds of Spector moving closer as my baby sways,

But the radios gone, and I'm slipping away,
All these deadline stations make you blue without a song to sing,
I walk so tall, and I ain't so young anymore,
So much like a man I have to say,
Write these words and turn the page,
Shake it up

I heard these lines so many times,
About all your regrets,
How you think of me, how things would be
If only you could forget,
If I could go back girl I swear I wouldn't change a thing,
And you can spend all your hours all alone wishing on death thinking of me,

If I could be forgiven, for my casanova ways,
And the sounds of Spector moving closer as my baby sways,

But the radios gone, and I'm slipping away,
All these deadline stations make you blue without a song to sing,
I walk so tall, and I ain't so young anymore,
So much like a man I have to say,
Write these words and turn the page,
Shake it up..

Well the radios gone, and I'm slipping away,
All these deadline stations make you blue without a song to sing,
I walk so tall, and I ain't so young anymore,
So much like a man I have to say,
Write these words and turn the page,

Shake it up,
Yeah shake it up,
Yeah, shake it up,
Track Name: Smile
It's a haunted house since you found out his wrongs,
So educated you were so strong,
You go to your mama to take away your sins,
Waiting for a change to start over again,

I saw you tonight,
I saw you tonight,
I saw you tonight,
Looking like the night we met,
I saw you tonight,
I saw you tonight,
I saw you tonight,

I remembered when you smiled,
I remember when you left,
Took a little piece of me, and took it where you went,
All these ghosts keep sinking in,
I'm a victim of your style,
Take a good look at my face,
And I disguise a smile

This sad part of me remembers you girl,
So afraid to shake up your modern world,
And you cried to me baby about the things that you never knew,
And how 20 years of living girl, made a sad part of you

I saw you tonight,
I saw you tonight,
I saw you tonight,
Looking like the night we met,
I saw you tonight,
I saw you tonight,
I saw you tonight,

I remembered when you smiled,
I remember when you left,
Took a little piece of me, and took it where you went,
All these ghosts keep sinking in,
I'm a victim of your style,
Take a good look at my face,
And I disguise a smile

I was alright for a while.
I was alright for a while
Oh I love it when you smile.

I remembered when you smiled,
I remember when you left,
Took a little piece of me, and took it where you went,
All these ghosts keep sinking in,
I'm a victim of your style,
Take a good look at my face,
And I disguise a smile

I remembered when you smiled
(Look at me cause I'm the one pretending)
I remember when you left,
Took a little piece of me, and took it where you went,
(Look at me cause I'm the one pretending)
All these ghosts keep sinking in,
I'm a victim of your style,
(Look at me cause I'm the one pretending)
Take a good look at my face,
And I disguise a smile


I was alright for a while..
I was alright for a while..
I love it when you smile..
