Track Name: Lion Eyes
She watches from a table at the bar
She’s young and wild and able preying from afar
Her mane is burnt and auburn like the newest breed
Her skin is soft and golden made of greed

She looks right through your heart
That smile sharp in the dark
She wants you to surrender

That pretty appetite
Is fiending through the night
She wants you to surrender

Lion eyes, her lion eyes
She wants you she needs you
She’s got to feed those
Lion eyes

Her happiness is tortured ecstasy
She wants you to adore her faithfully

She looks right through your heart
That smile sharp in the dark
She wants you to surrender

That pretty appetite
Is fiending through the night
She wants you to surrender

Lion eyes, her lion eyes
She wants you she needs you
She’s got to feed those
Lion eyes

She’ll catch you and deceive you
Make love to you and leave
As she prowls in her disguise

Lion eyes, her lion eyes
She wants you she needs you
She’s got to feed those
Lion eyes
Track Name: I Miss The Music In Austin
I miss the music in Austin
Patio lights and a lone star band
Simple songs with new friends
I miss the music in Austin

I got a job that pays the bills
Playing songs for folk eating fancy meals
Traveling around in cheap hotels
I got a job that pays the bills

And I feel lost when I’m far away
Searching for the sun on a cloudy day
Till I’m under open sky I pray
I feel lost when I’m far away

Ooh

I’ve seen mountains and ocean blue
Flown twice as high as eagles do
Gone everywhere I needed to
But I miss the music in Austin

I miss the music in Austin
Patio lights and a lone star band
Simple songs with new friends
I miss the music in Austin

Ooh
Track Name: Bring Your Fire To Me
Wild nights ago I walked alone
Weary eyes and lungs filled with smoke
You came by
Burning bright

Time and time again you’ve been my flame
Always seemed to find you in my frame
And as we grew
The flame did too

Be my coal and I’ll burn for you madly
Light the troubled dark and warm the way
I’d travel miles just to see you
Bring your fire to me

Ooh…

The calling of the road took you away
Comfort of a life without a pace
So you roamed
Leaving home

Keep me with you darling as you go
My love for you the distance doesn’t show
But I beg
And I plea

Be my coal and I’ll burn for you madly
Light the troubled dark and warm the way
I’d travel miles just to see you
Bring your fire to me

Ooh…

Ooh

Be my coal and I’ll burn for you madly
Light the troubled dark and warm the way
I’d travel miles just to see you
Bring your fire to me
Bring your fire to me

Ooh…
Ooh…
Track Name: Jewels
This night is getting longer
Softly waiting for a sign

Hauntings cold in my cup the
Spirits singing in my mind

Is this a good time maybe
To tell you I need you right now?

I’m an outside of stone
With jewels on the inside
I’m an outside of stone
With jewels on the inside
On the inside

My thoughts are always running
To break down the walls of their escape

But I am hard as gravel
And I can’t let them get away

I’m an outside of stone
With jewels on the inside
I’m an outside of stone
With jewels on the inside
I’m an outside of stone
With jewels on the inside
On the inside

Raw with jade, different ways
In my mind to play it right
Ruby cave
And diamonds (x3)

I’m an outside of stone
With jewels on the inside
I’m an outside of stone
With jewels on the inside
I’m an outside of stone
With jewels on the inside
On the inside
Track Name: I Wanna Be In Love
I pick up my phone
Ring a guy I know
He’s alright

Pick me up at ten
But I’d rather stay in
Oh well, I go

Shotgun in his car
To his favorite bar
And I don’t care

About his fancy job
Or the view inside his loft

I’m just looking for a friend
Someone to be with at the end
Of the day

I wanna be in love, ooh
In love

Buys us drinks for two
Says the place is new
I smile and nod

Try to act involved
As I swim in alcohol
But it’s so hard

To find someone who’s sweet
Handsome and offbeat

I’m just looking for a friend
Someone to be with at the end
Of the day

I wanna be in love, ooh
In love

A man who holds me close
Dandelion rose from the ground
I feel him in my bones
Fields of blossoms grow
When I’m found

I’m just looking for a friend
Someone to be with at the end
Of the day

I wanna be in love, ooh
In love

La la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la…
Track Name: All In Life
Da da…

My breaths are shorter these days
I think about every word
Years change the way you see
Does worry really have worth?

I just wanna swim
In the biggest ocean
Climb the tallest mountain
Just to show that I’m alive
To show that I tried
That I gave it all in life

Da da…

My hands are stronger it seems
Worn and dirty as I play
I’m getting closer to my dreams
Slowly molding into clay

I just wanna swim
In the biggest ocean
Climb the tallest mountain
Just to show that I’m alive
To show that I tried
That I gave it all in life

Da da…

It’s coming up roses
On my knees
And I will not falter
I will lead
Breaking the static I am free (repeat in round)

…I’ll be free

I just wanna swim
In the biggest ocean
Climb the tallest mountain
Just to show that I’m alive
To show that I tried
That I gave it all in life

Da da…
