Track Name: How
How could you be so bad
How could you be so bad
What did you expect to gain
Causin' me this kinda pain
How could you be so bad

How could you be so cold
How could you be so cold
What's it take to make you feel
Have you got a heart of steel
How could you be so cold

What am I supposed to do
I wanna know why you had to hurt me so
Now you say our love is through
I say that's okay, it was over anyway

How could you be so mean
How could you be so mean
Every time I come around
All you do is put me down
How could you be so mean

How could you be so hard
How could you be so hard
I did all a guy could do
Guess it's not enough for you
How could you be so hard

Why oh why should I cry
Should I be blue over you

What am I supposed to do
I wanna know why you had to hurt me so
Now you say our love is through
I say that's okay, it was over anyway

How could you be so bad

Track Name: Shovel Don't Dig No Grave
Shotgun don’t go killin’
Shovel don’t dig no grave
‘Til a man get to thinkin’
How his woman misbehave

Judge don’t need no jury
Sheriff don’t need no jail
And a man don’t need to worry
‘Til his woman make him wail

Shovel don’t dig no grave

Rope ain’t on no gallows
Preacher don’t read no rites
‘Til a man start to wondrin’
Where his woman spend her nights

Shovel don’t dig no grave

Worm don’t eat no body
Devil don’t take no soul
‘Til a man’s cheatin’ woman
Make him lose all self-control

Shovel don’t dig no grave

Track Name: Big Mistake
Everything I do seems to slap your face
Every word I say puts you in your place
There’s a look in your eye for every move I make
Did you ever think you made a big mistake loving me

Tell me why do I act this way
Make you cry every day
All my lies are too hard to take
Did you ever think you made a big mistake loving me

You made a big mistake

Track Name: Firefly
To this night I’ve been tied too long
While your pain hid before my eyes
And I was unaware anywhere you were

Now I find in my mind alone
How your words echo out of tune
And you could break my world if you wanted to

Tangled in a memory
Would you be surprised to see
How a thousand fireflies
Fill the sky for a moment

So I bleed since you wounded me
Every vein pounds a silent cry
And I can feel the ghost peeling from my bones

Tangled in a memory
Would you be surprised to see
How a thousand fireflies
Fill the sky for a moment

And I don’t know why I never cry for you
Somewhere inside I nearly died for you

To this night I’ve been tied too long
While your words echo out of tune
And you could heal my wounds if you only knew

Tangled in a memory
Would you be surprised to see
How a thousand fireflies
Fill the sky for a moment

Tangled in a memory
Don’t say you’re surprised to see
How a single firefly
Destroyed my mind in a moment

And I don’t know why I never cry for you
Somewhere inside I nearly died for you

Track Name: I Woke Up
Too late too late I finally figured it out
I saw tomorrow vanish into the night
And now I see I need to pay the cost of pain I caused
Too late too late I finally figured it out

I woke up to the sound of a door slamming shut

I waited I waited for the time to be right
I waited I waited nearly all of my life
And when my moment came it caught me in a dream again
I may be waiting for the rest of my life

I woke up to the sound of a door slamming shut

Now I know I lost my only chance
Now I know I threw it all away

I woke up to the sound of a door slamming shut

Track Name: Slo-Mo
Deep in my recliner's
Overstuffed embrace
Part of the upholstery
Like I'm stitched in place

I ignore your questions
You avoid my eyes
We wear our affection
Like a bad disguise

Oh no moving in slo-mo

Stuck in love's still waters
No breeze strikes our sails
Dreams can sink in sorrow
When a romance fails

Oh no moving in slo-mo

Seal us up in plastic
Set us on display
Under the inscription
Lovers Gone Astray

Oh no moving in slo-mo

Track Name: All Alone
The wind blows rain across the evening highway
Thunder clouds grow darker by the mile
Hardly any traffic is going my way
I haven’t seen a soul for quite a while

Guess I’m all alone and I’m feeling low
Got a home somewhere somewhere

A painted yellow ribbon running through the mountains
A sign or two announcing narrow curves
These the only traces of a fellow human
No waving hand no smile no spoken word

Yes I’m all alone and I’m feeling low
Got a home somewhere somewhere

Feel like I’ve been on the road forever
Feel like I may never make it home

Seems as if there’s still an endless way to go
Before I find myself a place to stay
Now my only friend is this old radio
And I listen as the station fades away

Leavin’ me all alone and I’m feeling low
Got a home somewhere somewhere

Track Name: Why Would Ya
Why would ya even wanna
Why would ya even care
Why would ya even wanna
Don’t even go there

Get out of my face
Mind your own business
I’ll put you in your place
In a matter of minutes

You been pokin’ your nose
Where it don’t belong
If that’s the way it goes
Then the gloves are gone

Why would ya even wanna
Why would ya even care
Why would ya even wanna
Don’t even go there

You got somethin to say
Well keep it to yourself
Because the way I play
Is a hazard to health

Why would ya even wanna
Why would ya even care
Why would ya even wanna
Don’t even go there

You’re steppin on my toes
And you got some bad breath
You think you’re smellin like a rose
Instead you stink of death

Why would ya even wanna
Why would ya even care
Why would ya even wanna
Don’t even go there

Track Name: We Could Be Good
Like a switchblade stabbing through my tender skin
Thoughts of love are lethal when I let ‘em in
Though I close my mind to try to shut ‘em out
They can pierce my armor and I want to shout

We could be good

I'm a grown man I should show more self-control
But these feelings shake me to my very soul
Like a drug injected in an artery
Yeh your love's affected every part of me

We could be good

You make me moan you make me mutter
You make me shout you make me shudder
I shudder

Am I dreaming have I lost my sanity
Is this how perception is supposed to be
If I can't compel myself to concentrate
Surely my willpower will evaporate
We could be good

Track Name: I Didn't Know
Were you burning deep inside your murky mind
Did your search for meaning make you deaf and blind
Who was hidden there behind your frozen face
Were the demons dancing in a darker place

I didn’t know you never told me you should have said something

Guess I should have guessed I might have realized
Yes I should have seen the panic in your eyes
Now I might have known if I had taken time
Paid attention to your temper more than mine

I didn’t know you never told me you should have said something

Hey yeh I didn’t know I didn’t know

If I had an opportunity to change
Could the pieces of the puzzle be arranged
If I had a true solution in my hand
Would it ever really matter in the end

I didn’t know you never told me you should have said something

Track Name: No Sorrow, My Love
My love is a glowing coal
And I keep it deep inside
In the center of my soul

My love has a hollow core
And no matter what you give
I’ll be begging you for more

How am I gonna cover my eyes
How am I gonna smother my cries
I don’t want no sorrow anymore

My love is a broken blade
Only in the heat of hell
Will the metal be remade

How am I gonna cover my eyes
How am I gonna smother my cries
I don’t want no sorrow anymore

Track Name: Yeah Right
Maybe if we lay our hands on the water
We can calm the waves

Maybe if we nail our nightmares together
We can build a dream

Yeah right

Maybe if we fire our guns at the mirror
Evil will be killed

Yeah right

Maybe if we raise our voices to heaven
We’ll be heard in hell

Yeah right

Track Name: Deeper
How do you do the things you do
I feel a fire when I'm with you
I hope that you can feel it too

I had a chance to love today
I let my fear get in the way
But still I feel I have to say

My love goes deeper

When I'm alone I think of you
I think of all the things you do
I think of love so pure so true

My love goes deeper
