Track Name: Born in the Dark
Born in the Dark ~ Dave Coleman / Will Holland

There’s sweet hearts dancing
In the corner of a bar I know
Despite all of there steps
They’ve still got a ways to go
There’s a street full of churches
Preaching them same old words
Pardon me brother
Won’t you teach me something I ain’t heard -
It’s not good enough for me

I was born in the dark but I see the light
Baby don’t you hold on tight
We’ve been through this before
I'm not hanging around this town no more

There’s a view of the city
Where lovers go to play
Rusty cars and kisses that just fade away
There’s trouble on the square
With blood falling on the street
Breaking bones because
There’s a women who will always cheat

It’s not good enough for me
I was born in the dark but I see the light
Baby don’t you hold on tight
We’ve been through this before
Well I'm not hanging around this town no more

I’ve seen the streets the buildings in the catalogs
At the limit of the sky a man’s got to climb or fall
Track Name: Nowhere's Too Far
Nowhere’s too Far ~ Dave Coleman / Carter Wood

I’m over here yeah baby
Who knows where you are
Just to be near you lately
I all but fall apart
I keep thinkin’ if I’m patient
You might call
Oh, how it feels when you fall

Nowhere’s too far to find
The one that reaches you inside
Search the earth cross the sky
Nowhere’s too far tonight

What if I never really
Saw your face again
What if you left this city
Took off on a reckless whim
I’ll be right here with all the hope I’ve ever had
Oh, when you come back
Oh, if you ever decide to come back
Track Name: Dog Won't Hunt
Dog Won't Hunt ~ Dave Coleman

You can’t slip away
You can’t steal away
You can’t shy away
You can’t take back your love

Can’t run & hide
Can’t hide & seek
You can’t seek another lover
You can’t take back your love

Well you shouldn’t pretend
You’re just a little girl
And that I could save you
From a very very scary world

Can’t say you don’t
We can’t say we won’t
After you say you’re in
You can’t take back your love
(It’s gonna wreck me if you do)

That dog won’t hunt
This bluebird will sing
Two things I know
And you can’t take back your love
(No you can’t)
Track Name: Farther Find Me Now
Farther Find Me Now ~ Dave Coleman / Bob Delevante

Tell me sir where we going now
The wind blows from town to town
Taken away We can never stay

Something to do with who we were before
Tell you the truth I don’t know anymore
Where I been Where to go

I’ve fought and I’ve dreamed
I’ve patiently prayed just to reach a touch of grace
Farther Find Me Now
Farther Find Me Now
Farther Find Me Now

They will push you and rush you
On down the line
You best keep moving, hoping someone will find
Where you are Who you were
Where we going Please tell me sir

Me and my sister use to play this game
I try to remember but I can’t explain
All the rules Where has she gone
Where we going Where has she gone
Tell me sir Where has she gone
Track Name: I Tell You
I Tell You ~ Dave Coleman / Michael Kelsh

I tell you she told me
Set me down
Gave me back my key
She’s sick of this house
She’s sick of me
I tell you she told me

If I’d known how she’d be
I would've let her go
I would've set her free
A long time ago
Instead of fallin’ so deep
I tell you she told me

She spoke real sweet and tenderly
But the words she said
Ain’t what they use to be

I tell you how it felt to me
It hit me hard
Knocked the wind out of me
Now I’m blowin’ away
Like a tumble weed
I tell you she told me
I tell you she told me goodbye I’m sorry
Track Name: Heartfelt
Heartfelt ~ Dave Coleman

I know it’s getting late & we’ve all made mistakes
All the same it’s a familiar voice
You meant to erase it cause honey let’s face it
My number was never your first choice

But since we’re on the phone how you gettin’ along
Must be busy cause you were never there
Me I’ve been fine not been biding my time
I been busy working on home repairs

I know your heartfelt
But it’s best after all
I guess you meant to call someone else
I suggest you call someone else

But enough about me is your cat in a tree
Or is your whole world up in fire
Is your car in a ditch or are you feeling an itch
Either way I’m not a taker or a buyer

Well I’ve spoken my peace dial two to repeat
Nostalgia is a waste like no other
Goodbye and good luck from this number you called up
& by the way give my best to your dear mother
Track Name: Sanity
Sanity ~ Dave Coleman / Jason Hitchcock

First of the month pay the rent
Write the check honey money's spent
Oh my my, being broke it’s braking me
I try to smile for a little bit of sanity

Driving the car that a bank really owns
To a job where work for hours on a phone
No sir I’m not a very good salesman you see
But, I try to smile for a little bit of sanity

Another seven days ‘til I get paid
Then some other chump
gonna come and take it all away

Lawd above where does it go
Did I ever have it honey I don’t know
Oh my my, being broke it’s braking me
I try to smile for a little bit of sanity

Middle of the month electric is due
Nothin’ much left for me and you
Oh sweet baby wonder why u don’t pack yo' things & leave
I try to smile for a little bit of sanity

Papa use to tell me living ain’t cheap
I guess I had to grow up and eventually see that
Barely getting by is killing me
I try to smile for a little bit of sanity
Track Name: Sweet in the Pines
Sweet in the Pines ~ Dave Coleman / Carter Little

Washing clothes at the laundromat
Found your t-shirt from some strangers summer camp
Fits you tight - twenty three years old
I want to start all over & do it again

I would fall farther
I would love deeper
I would crash a little harder
If I could start all over & do it again

You were single & so fine
Fresh from the city and sweet in the pines
We got down we stole a perfect night
I wanna start all over & do it again

I hear you breathing
I feel you teasing me
I see you leaving before we get a chance

I would fall farther
I would love deeper
I would crash harder
If we could start all over & do it again

Who’s hand are you swinging now
Is he the king I could never be anyhow
Do you wonder in an empty night
If we could start all over & do it again
Track Name: The Singer (in Louisville)
The Singer (in Louisville) ~ Dave Coleman

The singer is back in Louisville
He's always been here somewhere on a bill
And good you know, In fact a favorite
Lord his guitar and the way he plays it

Aw there giving him hell
And he's not taking it to well
The Singer in Louisville

The singer is drinking my whiskey
He's slowing down and looking tipsy
I know he's hurting in fact in pain
Now that they're asking for "Fire and Rain"

The old singer he's yelling at these kids
Don't like them either with there fifty cent tips
He throws a pouch in fact a statement
Then he's beatin into the pavement

The singer when he was young
He had the power he was the sun
But tonight he'll drive back home
Back into the arms of his wife and his son

My bar is closing in fact for good
It's hard to tell just when it is that you should
Aw the singer he could hang it up too
But he's got his next show in just a week or two
Track Name: Delicate
Delicate ~ Dave Coleman / Carter Little

She’s got a broken arm
And it hides a broken heart
She’s barely holding on
To every breakable part

But she won’t make the call
No she won’t cry
She’ll put up one hell of a fight
And there’s no ambulance in this town
That’ll ever find the roads that she goes down

She’s quiet tonight
And her whiskey won’t work
I ask her why she never shows where it hurts

She is Delicate but she won’t tell you that
There’s pieces falling from her lips
She is Delicate but she won’t tell you that
The gloss is coming off her kiss

Who's gonna lift you up
And make you feel better
Who's gonna pick you up
And make you feel better

There’s no ambulance In this town
That’ll ever go down the roads she goes down
She won’t make the call she won’t cry
She puts up one hell of a fight

She’s quiet tonight And her whiskey won’t work
Track Name: Last Goodbye
Last Goodbye ~ Dave Coleman / Will Holland

You can say what you wanna say
That’s alright
Do what you wanna do I don’t mind
Well honey won’t you be my last goodbye
Honey won’t you be my last goodbye

You got a sharp little tongue
But your always wrong
Yeah ain't that right yeah baby
You got a sweet little side but it never lasts long
Well ain't that right now baby

Let me make this clear to you my dear
If it’s over and done it doesn’t mean that you won

Well I’m shooting from the hip
Cause I’m sick of this bit
It’s not even funny
If love was a record
You’d make it skip
Ain’t that right yeah honey
Track Name: Depreciate
Depreciate ~ Dave Coleman / Seth Timbs

I'm running out of steam friends
I need a pint of blood
They don't make like they use to
I can't do it like I done

I'm nearly ready for the junkyard
Counting down the miles
I can't remember all my travels
But boy I road'em out in style

All the luster and the shine
It's bound to chip and fade
The day you role it off that line
You depreciate

Thank you for all the cold nights
Thank you for summer days
I hope to stay in your memory
After you send me on my way

Will you put me out to pasture
Let weeds grow 'round my wheels
Will you sell me to some old gal
Will you give her a deal
Track Name: Houston Memory
Houston Memory ~ Dave Coleman / Adam & Shannon Wright

He lives in Las Vegas
She lives in Tennessee
They lived together in Texas
In a Houston memory

She never loved any other man
But she felt the pull of the family hand
Drawing her back to her Tennessee home
Pulling them apart and leaving him alone

He never loved any other girl
But broken hearts won’t stop the world
Packed the truck and went where the money was
A working man - thats what he does

He lives in Las Vegas
She lives in Tennessee

On the city strip where the lights are bright
He wonders where she is tonight
She looks out on the rolling hills
And she just wonders how he feels
Track Name: Can't Thank You Enough
Can't Thank You Enough ~ Dave Coleman

I can’t thank you enough
There’s to much to say
Everything you’ve ever done
To help me on my way
I can not ever repay

I can’t thank you enough
There’s now way to describe
I just can’t explain
What I feel deep inside
No matter how hard I ever try
I can’t thank you enough

When no one around reaches a hand out
You are my best damn friend
Now that I’ve found you never cared about
Who I was or where I’d been
How Can I ever begin?

I can’t thank you enough
I just hope that I’ll be
Everything in this world
You told me I could be
In time we’ll see
I can’t thank you enough

When no one around reaches a hand out
You are my best damn friend
Now that I’ve found you never cared about
Who I was or where I’d been
How Can I ever begin?

I can’t thank you enough
I can’t thank you enough
