Track Name: Always Hear You
"Always Hear You"
Lyrics by D.R. Welch
Music by David John Wellnitz
Arrangement by Heels To The Hardwood

Passing on dollars
While living on dimes
Waiting on love
To come down the line
Feels like endless roads
Where's the money gonna come from

Where's the money gonna come from
Where's the money gonna come from
Where's the money gonna come from
Where's the money gonna come from

Feel your strings from your past
Weighing heavy on your chest
Not gonna let you give up
You're gonna finish what you love

Change your strings
Start a new band
Ready your voice
Steady your hand
Brother play for me
I will hear, always hear you

Always hear you, always hear you, always hear you, always hear you

Spent three years waiting on a ghost
Come and show you what you already know
To appear in your dreams
Come and show you what you've already seen

So for now forget the radio
You're gonna sing along to your songs and your soul
So for now forget the radio
They're gonna sing along to your songs and your soul

Your brother never left us
He just a stopped coming around
Your brother never left us
He just a stopped coming around
Who needs a tiny violin
When you got a big bad guitar
Who needs a tiny violin
When you got a big bad guitar

Always hear you...
Track Name: Pocket Knife
"Pocket Knife"
Song written by David John Wellnitz
Arrangement by Heels To The Hardwood

Plaid skirt doesn't understand why
This keeps happening in her life
Knocked back by life's hurdles
Year by year, day by day
Just getting harder
Them ditches they're just getting wider

Well she better learn
How to untie her ties
Or buy herself a pocket knife

To cut cut, cut away
All these memories that keep binding us, everyday
These memories that keep binding us, time to break away

Patty doesn't feel too accomplished
Working world instead of college
Everyday stands on this stage
Singing down to you
You know her three boys won't disobey, her DNA
Three boys won't disobey, her DNA

Sean's got a new career
Yeah talks about it everywhere
I hope that someday to be successful as him
You know my dreams change on the year
Hope you don't think I'm weird
That a six strings, a lonely road is a tie worth tying

I better learn how to untie my ties
How to untie my ties
Or buy myself a pocket knife

To cut cut, cut away
All these memories that keep binding us, everyday
These memories that keep binding us, time to break away
Track Name: On Our Own
"On Our Own"
Song written by David John Wellnitz
Arrangement by Heels To The Hardwood

Please stop dragging this along
You can't find the right then it must be wrong
Two years since your mind's been gone
No more excuses, what is done is done
No more excuses, what is done is done

'Cause we'll be fine on our own
Grown strong learned I've to balance alone
No need to worry i've done this all before
Can't find the real in your fake anymore

Now it's known there's more then you to blame
Well I guess your mind's just better at this game
Now if you decide to stay
Start putting the time, that you claim
Start putting the time, that you claim

'Cause we'll be fine on our own
Grown strong learned I've to balance alone
No need to worry i've done this all before
Can't find the real in your fake anymore

We'll be fine on our own
Grown strong learned to balance alone
No need to worry i've done this all before
Can't find the real in your fake anymore

Can't find the real
Can't find the real
Can't find the real
Can't find the real
Track Name: What WilI It Take
"What WIll It Take"
Song written by David John Wellnitz
Arrangement by Heels To The Hardwood

Who do you trust
When you think you're crazy
Exhausted everyday
Where have you been lately
Are you working your life away, away

What will it take
To keep us all close
What will it take
To get us to the goal

Where is my Mary
Been missing you baby everyday
Where is my baby
You've been working so hard I know
You've been working your life down to the bone

What will it take
To keep us all close
What will it take
To get us to the goal

How do we keep going
When our internal push stops moving
How do we disguise all the water
When the damn keep leaking

What will it take
To keep us all close
Yeah, yeah, yeah
What will it take
To get us to the goal
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Keep us all close
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Keep us all close
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Keep us all close

Song written by David John Wellnitz
Arrangement by Heels To The Hardwood

Two brothers
Caught me on fire, caught me on fire
Two brothers
Caught me on fire, caught me on, yeah

The zoo's on fire
Caught me on fire, caught me on fire
The zoo's on fire
Caught me on fire, caught me on, yeah

Back yard
Middle of a city
Front deck
Great on belief
Two brothers
Caught me on fire, caught me on, yeah

Caught me on, caught me on

In the back yard
On the front porch
Caught me on, caught me on
In the back yard
On the front porch
Caught me on, caught me on
Track Name: Better For You
"Better For You"
Song written by David John Wellnitz
Arrangement by Heels To The Hardwood

So close to the bottom
Seems clear as day
Our love seems forgotten
I'm not running away

What's better for me
Might be better for you
What's better for me
Might be wrong too

I'm not running away
Here to stay
I'm not running away
Here to stay

What's better for me
Might be better for you
What's better for me
Might be wrong too

Which road is worth the follow
When there's no right way
All we do is beg or borrow
I'm not running away

Now,
Who are you to choose
Who are you to choose
Who are you to choose
Who are you

What's better for me
Might be better for you
What's better for me
Might be wrong too

Track Name: Texas
"Texas"
Song written by David John Wellnitz
Arrangement by Heels To The Hardwood

How you gonna feel
spend your whole life locked up
too afraid to be real
Mellow dramatic
Chasing relaxing
ignoring life
As your world
Still passes

Trying to fit in,Trying to fit in
Into holes ,Bigger than
Bigger than Texas
Bigger than Texas
Bigger than Texas
Oh...

718
Closed the door on me
Invading
Some privileged privacy


Trying to fit in,Trying to fit in
Into holes ,Bigger than
Bigger than Texas
Bigger than Texas
Bigger than Texas
Oh...

Holding yourself up for ransom
Complaining that your life is too lonesome
Blocking out the world
Blocking out the world

How you gonna feel
spend your whole life locked up
too afraid to be real
Mellow dramatic
Chasing relaxing
ignoring life
As your world
Still passes
Track Name: You Keep Me Going
"You Keep Me Going"
Song written by David John Wellnitz
Arrangement by Heels To The Hardwood

There ain't nothing that could bring us down
Nothing in this world that we can't figure out
No fooling hard times will come around
One stands strong in the other ones arms

You got this way with words
That keeps me going, going within
You got this way with touch
Thats keeps me going, going within

Something about being hand to hand
Creates a love we all understand
Strong human listen and comprehend
The toughest remain in the shadows of a woman or a man

You got this blind confidence
That keeps me going going within
You got this blind confidance
That keeps me going going within

You keep me going on
You keep me going on

Listen comprehend
The toughest remain in the shadows of a woman or a man
Strong human listen and comprehend
The toughest remain in the shadows of a woman or a man
Track Name: Cinderella
"Cinderella"
Song written by David John Wellnitz
Arrangement by Heels To The Hardwood

If its a game that you playing
You're losing at
If its fame that you're seeking
You picked the right path
Frame that you're searching
There's comfort in that
If it's a name worth leaving
Better check the math

Green is the grass you're searching for
An easier path you're hoping for
There's a friendship for sale now who will pay more
There's loyalty lost long before

Your decision of walking through the door
Your decision of walking through the door

Your egos wings are fully grown
Free to wonder out on your own
Now place upon your plastic crown
You're no Cinderella just wearing the gown

You're a black shadow creeper waiting to jump ship
Your next review about what is hip
Now go towards the lights along the strip
Realize that you're blocking the shot of where you're attached at the hip

Your decision of walking through the door
Your decision of walking through the door
Track Name: Lake City
"Lake City"
Song written by David John Wellnitz
Arrangement by Heels To The Hardwood

In two days I'm leaving
There's nothing holding me
Except some friends
And a little family

Whoo hoo hoo ...On my way

Got to find a new Lake City
One closer to my dreams
Filled with head shots
And a networking

Whoo hoo hoo ...On my way

Our last voice vibration
Made me think
Seems like your problems
Are like a bottomless sink

Don't let me come back easy
Don't let me come back, come back
Don't let me come back easy
Don't let me come back, come back

Whoo hoo hoo ...On My Way
