Track Name: Borderline
I can feel your heart I feel it beating all the time
Can you feel mine
Come across that borderline
Come on

Way down South under sweet gum tree
My baby told me that he loves me
Big brown eyes and he makes me sweat
The boy hasn't even kissed me yet

One day down by the ponchatrain
I swear I heard the wind calling, calling my name
Could you believe it was my lover boy
His sweet song makes such a happy noise

He was singing Hey
I can hear him calling my name
Baby, baby yea
Can you hear it, can you hear it
Hey yeah
My lover calls me out he says
Baby

I can feel your heart I feel it beating all the time
Can you feel mine
Come across that borderline
Come on

I can feel your heart I feel it beating all the time
Can you feel mine
Come across that borderline
Come on

Way down South under sweet gum tree
My baby told me that he loves me
Big brown eyes and he makes me sweat
The boy hasn't even kissed me yet

He was singing Hey
I can hear him calling my name
Baby, baby yea
Can you hear it, can you hear it
Hey yeah
My lover calls me out he says
Baby
Track Name: Sugar
College girl dropped out of school
Come home breaking all the rules
Couldn't get you off my mind

If they saw what I saw
In your love so true and raw
They'd be scared of what they saw

But if you want it honey we can make it right tonight
And if you taste it baby we can make it

You can have my sugar sugar sugar sugar
Wanna give you my sugar sugar sugar sugar
Wanna give it to you
If you want me to

I told you of my dream
Pleading oh what does it mean
You knew what I was after

You sat down on my couch
I was staring at your mouth
You knew just what I was after

But if you want it honey we can make it right tonight
And if you taste it baby we can make it

You can have my sugar sugar sugar sugar
Wanna give you my sugar sugar sugar sugar
Wanna give it to you
If you want me to

Oh I've needed love for so long
Never thought you'd be the one
Always wished it could be true
You've got me in the palm of your hand
If you want to be my man
I'm gonna give it to you

You can have my sugar sugar sugar sugar
Wanna give you my sugar sugar sugar sugar
Wanna give it to you
If you want me to
Track Name: Prison Cells
We can't go out without making mischief
You say why don't we just have all the fun there is
When we get ready, destroy small villages
It's not our fault that they didn't fireproof their shit

Oh when we go we can stay all night
Drink you out of house and home we might

We'll be singing til they incarcerate us
You know we're bound to get pinched one of these fucked up days
We'll be dancing on top of shotgun shells

When they lock us up we'll be singing in our prison cells, Prison cells, prison cells, oh
When they lock us up we'll be singing in our prison cells, Prison cells, prison cells, oh


You are the only other me
And I'm the only other you that we have ever seen
Oh aren't you pretty all dressed up that way
I'm just enough of a mess to keep them all at bay

Oh when we go we can stay all night
Drink you out of house and home we might

We'll be singing til they incarcerate us
You know we're bound to get pinched one of these fucked up days
We'll be dancing on top of shotgun shells

When they lock us up we'll be singing in our prison cells, Prison cells, prison cells, oh
When they lock us up we'll be singing in our prison cells, Prison cells, prison cells, oh

If you ever need me I'll come running, oh yes I will, yes I will
If you ever need me I'll come running, oh yes I will, yes I will
If you ever need me I'll come running, oh yes I will, yes I will
If you ever need me I'll come running, oh yes I will, yes I will

Oh when we go we can stay all night
Drink you out of house and home we might

We'll be singing til they incarcerate us
You know we're bound to get pinched one of these fucked up days
We'll be dancing on top of shotgun shells

When they lock us up we'll be singing in our prison cells, Prison cells, prison cells, oh
When they lock us up we'll be singing in our prison cells, Prison cells, prison cells, oh
Track Name: Mama Knows
Mama said good things come free
Do what you can, be what you need
We never had much but we figured it out
When you've got nothing, there's nothing to bitch about

She would say oh, oh don't hit me with your stuff
Say you got money, you got something
Oh, oh just hit me with your love
You ain't got love, you ain't got nothing

No shit your life is hard
It's an easy Sunday when you know who you are
Ain't no shortcut gonna bring you peace
But your mama knows just what you need

She would say oh, oh don't hit me with your stuff
Say you got money, you got something
Oh, oh just hit me with your love
You ain't got love, you ain't got nothing

It's so sweet
If you don't know, you better go ask your mama

She would say oh, oh don't hit me with your stuff
Say you got money, you got something
Oh, oh just hit me with your love
You ain't got love, you ain't got nothing
Track Name: Disappear
The day I was born I was 20 feet tall
You could see my face from heaven
A woman of lore to rule them all
And then I met you

And I gave it up
I gave you my all
I lost myself
I grew down

Why don't you take all of me
Til there's nothing left at all
The part of me you can see
Is getting small
Watch me disappear
Watch me disappear

I lose a little more every day
But I'm watching as you're getting stronger
I've been reduced to featherweight
But I hold on

In spite
I think I might die
Tonight
I'll float up to the sky

Why don't you take all of me
Til there's nothing left at all
The part of me you can see
Is getting small
Watch me disappear
Watch me disappear

I used to wake the sunshine
When I opened up my eyes
You used to love me in the moonlight
Now the moon don't even rise

Why don't you take all of me
Til there's nothing left at all
The part of me you can see
Is getting small
Watch me disappear
Watch me disappear
Track Name: Don't Be Jealous
Uh huh

There must be somebody to keep me company
Another voice to drown out the lonely
The van to the venue to the van to the bed
And you just gotta laugh at what the boys in the band said

I see you staring out the corner of your eye

Don't be jealous
It's just me and the fellas
Don't be jealous
It's just me and the fellas

Uh huh

We've seen the ends of I-80
From Joliet to Salt Lake City
Sebastopol to Durango
I better put my foot down ain't got no turbo

I see you staring out the corner of your eye

Don't be jealous
It's just me and the fellas
Don't be jealous
It's just me and the fellas

Uh huh

You bring it to the middle bring it to the edge
If you want to sip a little something let it go to your head, go on
We work it harder every extra mile
There's gotta be 30,000 reasons why a girl should smile

I see you staring out the corner of your eye

Don't be jealous
It's just me and the fellas
Don't be jealous
It's just me and the fellas

Uh huh
Track Name: Every Road
Front seat windows down and you rolling on my mind
Thinking about last week when your hand was on my thigh
If you got another woman better keep her next to you
I wanna tell my crew about it if you keep doin what you're doin

Cause I, i can't slow it down
And I wanna drive you around

Don't you even worry 'bout it
Tell me where you wanna go
I'll navigate the road
Don't think twice about it
Baby you can let it go
I know every road
Every road
Every road

First time I caught your scent I fell right through the floor
Glued to every movement tell me what you want me for
Never thought I'd see you look at me that way
I long to see it up and down these back highways

Don't you even worry 'bout it
Tell me where you wanna go
I'll navigate the road
Don't think twice about it
Baby you can let it go
I know every road
Every road
Every road

All I need is you tonight
If you wanna go
I'll drive
I'll drive

Don't you even worry 'bout it
Tell me where you wanna go
I'll navigate the road
Don't think twice about it
Baby you can let it go
I know every road
Every road
Every road
Track Name: We Need A Love
People can't wait to find perfection
They just want what they get right now
It's clearly a waste of time
I can't see what I'm doing wrong til I'm
Crying all alone on my kitchen floor
Come see me when I fly

But you've been waiting here so long
For me to muddle through this song
Take my time

We need a love to last forever
So we will never die, die, die

So scared to live but too young to go
A child of children who will never know
How lonely they designed my heart
Gotta be something to get me through
How 'bout a love that lives for truth
If only I could be so smart

But you've been waiting here so long
For me to muddle through my song
But I take my time

We need a love to last forever
So we will never die, die, die
I need a song that I'll remember
That love is just a lie, lie, lie

Well maybe it could outlast us
When your bones and your hearts turn to dust
Afraid of the darkness beyond your breath
But your love is stronger than your death

We need a love to last forever
So we will never die, die, die
I need a song that I'll remember
That love is just a lie, lie, lie
Track Name: Cold Blooded
Nobody gets me going
Not since that first time no
Once is enough if you go by
My timeline
In the evening there's no porch light shining
I'm not waiting for someone to try and turn me on
There ain't nobody
Ain't nobody

Cause I'm cold blooded
Cold blooded

When the earth was shaking
Only time that I was not faking
I only know retreating
But old soup it just needs some reheating
I was left to freeze here
And I know I know I know I can't be pleased here
There ain't nobody

Ain't nobody

Cause I'm cold blooded
Cold blooded

Nananananana
Oh

Cold blooded
Track Name: Catch Me If You Can
Got you searching high I'm feeling so low
Past the river's mile the mountain shadow
If you get too close we're gonna find out
If we both can breathe where we hide out

I will do my best to run you all night
I could stay right here but I can't sit tight
I could make you wait but I don't want to
There's no one above you

Catch me if you can
I'm falling
If you can
I'll be right here waiting
If you can
I'm falling
If you can

I can bait you with my breath that needs you
Just don't bite the hand that feeds you
I don't want to hold out on my lover
I can't breathe when I'm without you

Got you searching high I'm feeling so low
Past the river's mile the mountain shadow
I can't wait to set you free
You searched the whole world and found me

Catch me if you can
I'm falling
If you can
I'll be right here waiting
If you can
I'm falling
If you can
