Lion Eyes 03:54
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

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

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…

Jewels 03:57
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

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…

All In Life 04:46
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…
