Track Name: You Can't Catch Me
Turn on the key and away we go
Step on the gas let’s kick some asss
Squealin’ tires and a five speed trans
Block to block as fast as you can

You’ll never catch me, you’ll never catch me , no
You’ll never catch me, you’ll never catch me, no

I hate waiting at the light
Mean eyes from left to right
I can shift faster than you
When the light turns green you’ll see the proof

You’ll never catch me, you’ll never catch me , no
You’ll never catch me, you’ll never catch me, no

Here I go by the city limit sign
Leave those cruisers way behind
All night long these wheels they turn
Gotta park this thing before I get burned

You’ll never catch me, you’ll never catch me , no
You’ll never catch me, you’ll never catch me, no

Turn on the key and away we go
Step on the gas let’s kick some asss
Squealin’ tires and a five speed trans
Block to block as fast as you can

You’ll never catch me, you’ll never catch me , no
You’ll never catch me, you’ll never catch me, no
Track Name: Good and Bad
Bricks in the city, concrete walls
Graffiti on them, just pictures and words
Black and white, oh so true
Paint and brushes, the artistic tools

Who are the Van Goghs that color the earth
History on the walls, artistic point of view
They talk of love - they talk of pain
Talk of their cities, good and bad

Good and bad
Good and bad

Old factories since shut down
Their walls are painted like a mosaic underground
Broken windows let real light in
When the sun shines you know they’ll paint again

Who are the Van Goghs that color the earth
History on the walls, artistic point of view
They talk of love - they talk of pain
Talk of their cities, good and bad

Good and bad
Good and bad

Railroad bridges broken and dead
Statues of stones is all that’s left
They’re layered with paint by an artist of another time
Tells the story as life goes by

Who are the Van Goghs that color the earth
History on the walls, artistic point of view
They talk of love - they talk of pain
Talk of their cities, good and bad

Good and bad
Good and bad
Good and bad
Good and bad
Track Name: Dream
I’m at the speed of light
I race to the stars
And I can’t, I can’t slow down
I ride on a shooting star

In my dreams I travel far

Close you eyes, dream of me
I close my eyes and dream of you
Black holes and purple planets
Let’s meet in a special place

In my dreams I travel far

The sunshine is in my window
I arise to another day
I fight through all it’s labors
But tonight I’ll dream of you

In my dreams I travel far

I dream, oh yes I love to dream
I lay down my head and rest my mind
Close my eyes, let time stand still
I’m unconscious to the distant worlds

In my dreams I travel far
In my dreams I travel far
In my dreams I travel far
Track Name: Send a Sweetheart
We all need something to hold
We all need some kind of love
I've been hoping for a lover
Maybe it'll happen today

I need a sweetheart, won't you send her first class
I'm in a hurry, and I paid for express

I put a note into a bottle
Then I sent it on down the river
Where it goes, nobody knows
I might get lucky, my picture's inside

I need a sweetheart, won't you send her first class
I'm in a hurry, and I paid for express

My phone is ringing, this could be it
Woman on the line, she likes my picture
I said she could, she said she would
She's got a ticket on the next airline

I need a sweetheart, send her first class
I'm in a hurry, I paid for express

We all need something to hold
We all need some kind of love
I've been hoping for a lover
Maybe it'll happen today

I need a sweetheart, won't you send her first class
I'm in a hurry and I paid for express
I'm in a hurry and I paid for express
Track Name: Bootleg Whiskey
It’ll knock you down
Take away your pain
If you drink too much
You’ll never dance again

Bootleg whiskey
Bootleg whiskey recipe
Moonshine – pure grain alcohol

Moonshine’s made in the mountains
Ma and Pa run the still
Kids are up in the trees
Watchin’ for the feds

Bootleg whiskey
Bootleg whiskey recipe
Moonshine – pure grain alcohol

All it takes is a little corn
Bootleggin’ is our way of life
Junior makes the deliveries
And he only drives at night

Bootleg whiskey
Bootleg whiskey recipe
Moonshine – pure grain alcohol

Federal revenuers
Filled our stills with holes
Took away our whiskey
But we were long gone

Bootleg whiskey
Bootleg whiskey recipe
Moonshine – pure grain alcohol

It’ll knock you down
Take away your pain
If you drink too much
You’ll never dance again
Track Name: Free my Soul
I know it’s been a long, long time
Since our eyes met on the same side
I know we’re older, things ain’t changed
I think of you day to day

Only you free my soul
Only you free my soul

I’ve been looking for you in my dreams
I break a sweat thinking you’re there
Ah, sweet lover, where do you hide?
I know I’ll find you, together we’ll ride

Only you free my soul
Only you free my soul

If time allows for us to meet
I’d back up time and tell you once again
I’ve carried your memory everywhere I’ve been
All these years still love you

Only you free my soul
Only you free my soul
Only you free my soul
Track Name: If You Can't Love Me
You made me promises you could not keep
You lied to me, said things you didn’t mean
Sometimes I wish we’d never met
One day baby, I’m gonna pay you back

If you can’t love me I can’t wait no more
I can’t love you if you close that door

I’m like a puppy on the street
On the hunt, lookin’ for love
Every corner something new to see
It’s been a long time since I felt free

If you can’t love me I can’t wait no more
I can’t love you if you close that door

I’m like a puppet on a string
Done my time too long without love
Now baby this ain’t no line
I need some lovin’ - may I have you tonight?

If you can’t love me I can’t wait no more
I can’t love you if you close that door

You made me promises you could not keep
You lied to me, said things you didn’t mean
Sometimes I wish we’d never met
One day baby, I’m gonna pay you back

If you can’t love me I can’t wait no more
I can’t love you if you close that door
Track Name: Cold at Night
Where’s the sunshine?
Shine on me today
I need a warm friend
Stay a while, don’t go away

We race to the stars
In search of the speed of light
What’s it all come down to
We still get cold at night

Still cold at night
Still cold at night

Dark clouds are rolling
Here comes that golden beam
The rain is over
I was dirty, now I’m clean

Still cold at night
Still cold at night

Find the secret
To change hate to love
All that breathe
Would save the children
And save their lives

Cold at night
Cold at night
Cold at night
Cold at night
Cold at night
Cold at night
Cold at night
Cold at night
Track Name: Smiles and Tears
The love of life can bring you up
Cloudy skies can bring you down
Keep your head in the game
Good things will come around

Smiles and tears, a human emotion
Smiles and tears can stop the rain
Love me, love me, not illusion
True love will find a way

You run too fast and you can fall
You run too slow - you fall behind
Flow free as the river
You’ll always be on time

Where ever you want to go
Remember where you have been
Always search for something new
Your dreams just might come true

Smiles and tears, a human emotion
Smiles and tears can stop the rain
Love me, love me, not illusion
True love will find a way

The love of life can bring you up
Cloudy skies can bring you down
Keep your head in the game
Good things will come around

Smiles and tears, a human emotion
Smiles and tears can stop the rain
Love me, love me, not illusion
True love will find a way
Track Name: Taxi Man
Don’t worry, take a little time
And I know your car broke down
You won’t have to walk across the town
‘Cause I’ll be there, I’ll never let you down

You woke up late, the kids are out of hand
No milk in the fridge, the damn dog ran off again
Your car won’t start and you’re walking in the rain
Dial my number, I’ll help you out

Let it go baby, let me change your mind
There’s no others I wish to love
Let it go baby, I’m always close by
I wanna be your taxi man, your taxi man

I know we didn’t see eye to eye
And I wish we could love again
It’s no trade, swapping you for gin
I wanna be your taxi man

You woke up late, the kids are out of hand
No milk in the fridge, the damn dog ran off again
Your car won’t start and you’re walking in the rain
Dial my number, I’ll help you out

Let it go baby, let me change your mind
There’s no others I wish to love
Let it go baby, I’m always close by
I wanna be your taxi man
your taxi man
your taxi man
Track Name: Love Don't Come Easy
Hot summer nights, late night rendezvous
You look so fine, I wanna make love to you
Lights are flashing, the band’s over here
Shake that, shake that, shake that thing

When I’m with you I got no sense of time
Nothing’s important, just to be with you
Tonight’s the night - tell you how I feel
I love, I love, I love you

Love don’t come easy
It’s gonna take some time
Love don’t come easy
There’s no easy way to love

There’s a tattoo only I can see
I know your secrets, I got the key
To set your mind truly free
You can count on, count on, count on me

Hot summer night, late night rendezvous
You look so fine, I wanna make love to you
Lights are flashing, the band’s over here
Shake that, shake that, shake that thing

Love don’t come easy
It’s gonna take some time
Love don’t come easy
There’s no easy way to love

Love don’t come easy
It’s gonna take some time
Love don’t come easy
There’s no easy way to love

Love don’t come easy
