Sugar In The Gas Tank

VERSE 1:

You cant shake a headache like the one that I’ve got now
The Styrofoam cup’s filled up and this window aint rollin’ down
I don’t care what the stylist says I’m 25 not 95 and I’ll dress my own damn self
And if I had something to say I’d just let it out
Instead of waiting for the publicist to write it down

 

CHORUS:

Sugar, I’m not too sure but I think you’re the only way out
Sugar, there’s just so much I can take
Putting sugar in the gas tank

 

VERSE 2:

Parking lots and the truck stops and all the concrete that’s in-between
I’m left alone with the habits I have for my company
I divide the sign from the miles but no matter what I try something don’t feel right
When the girl on the pay phone waiting for me back home
Sounds way too damn happy to be sleeping alone

CHORUS 2:

Sugar, I’m not too sure but I think you’re the only way out
Sugar, there’s just so much here at stake
Putting sugar in the gas tank

 
Lyrics

Good Time

VERSE 1:

I bet you’re so proud of me
I found my backbone somewhere beneath the kitchen sink
You gotta hand it to me
The tough get going & and I’m just showing up

PRE-CHORUS:

You could be the one but you’d hate to see the sun rise
The damage that you have done
I hope you had a Good Time

 

CHORUS:

 

And all along I had been wrong
I had been blaming myself for the crime
The look on your face, it set it all straight
I hope you had a Good Time

 

VERSE 2:

You put yourself underneath
A cauldron of hope and fears that fell apart on me
You gotta hand it to me
The tough get going and I’m just showing up

 

OUTRO:

And all along I’d been wrong and I’d been blaming you

 
Lyrics

Eastern Shore

VERSE 1:

He won’t tell you he woke up dreaming about the Chesapeake last night
The dashboard’s burning, the wheels are turning
It’s been six hundred miles

 

PRE-CHORUS:

I bundle up my thoughts and lay my head to rest
I know I’d sleep much better if I get this off my chest

 

CHORUS:

 

God knows I try to breathe in all the air up here and keep it all inside
But if the timing was right, we’d rest our bones on this Eastern Shore tonight

 

VERSE 2:

He won’t tell you he woke up dreaming about the Chesapeake last night
The clothes he’s wearing, they’re just smoke-filled rags and
He’s a sight for your sore eyes

 

BRIDGE:

I’d swear it on her mother’s name
I’d silkscreen winter skies
If you can bear the distance, I could take the time to . .

 
Lyrics

Don't Tell Me I'm Wrong

VERSE 1:

This place and the taste, it’s a vehicle for my remorse
I’ll turn back or proceed, I just want these bed sheets to be warm

 

CHORUS:

Don’t Tell Me I’m Wrong
Scraped myself from the ceiling the first time I seen her
I’m conscious, she’s gone
And I don’t care what you say, but don’t you dare tell me I’m wrong

 

VERSE 2:

Lives estranged, one damn shame or a bet you’re not willing to take
Your friends lie and pretend that they hang on the words that you say

 
Lyrics

4. Don't Tell Me I'm Wrong

Battle of You

VERSE 1:

The winter you drove me home
And saved me from being alone
Your passenger seat was meant for me
I cried in the waiting room
The tears aren’t for me, they’re for you
And the doorway of doubt I’ve been pulling you through

PRE-CHORUS:

Admit I’m an unsafe bet, and shoot me straight this time
Would you clench your fists in anger if your hands weren’t holding mine?

 

CHORUS:

Whatever I do
Whatever I do
I won’t lose the battle of you

 

VERSE 2:

Your mother called this afternoon
We talked about the cancer and you
And she wanted to know Was there something she could do?
And pain shares a burden with truth
But you wouldn’t know that looking at you
I think you look better now than you ever have

 
Lyrics

5. Battle of You

Movie Scene

VERSE 1:

You’ve got a hell of a lot of nerve
And an ignorance so loud it’s written down on your face
The tables have turned
And our conversation becomes a parade

 

PRE-CHORUS:

And when are you gonna learn the hardest part of Love is loving too much?

 

CHORUS:

 

You caught me in the middle of a Movie Scene
And the punch lines knock me down, but I get back up again
And all I need I’m coming by it honestly
Alone in this crowded room, stuck inside this movie scene again

 

VERSE 2:

 

It’s one cold circumstance
When your love and romance puts you under the gun
And I can’t understand why I’m laughing so loud at my own expense

BRIDGE:

I’m apathetic and I’ll take the credit
It’s more than I can say for you
When getting over someone means getting under someone new

 
Lyrics

Drive (Acoustic)

VERSE 1:

How did I get so clean rising out of the dirt?
My soul, three smokes and an ashtray
Watching all three of them burn

If all of our fears were a window, then this downtown romance the stone
I was counting up all of the streetlights
You were running in high-heels back home

 

CHORUS:

The rain on the window is louder than the radio
What’s on my mind is you right now in case you didn’t know
I’m starting to see things perfectly

VERSE 2:

There’s a church on the edge of your shoulder
And the weight of my world on your heart
I’ll sign on this page of surrender to you
And we’ll just declare this the start

 

BRIDGE:

The gamble that we take is the safest bet I’ll ever make
And I promise I’ll try to keep both hands on the wheel when I drive

 
Lyrics

Pray For Me Tonight

VERSE 1:

When the Southern rain has fallen
I’ll wait for thunder & these chains are coming off

I’ll put a Bible in my coat
So my soul will get to Heaven, even if my body don’t

 

PRE-CHORUS:

One day I’ll wake up and tear the sheets apart
Uncovering the stepping stone beneath these bones that I used to call my heart
So say something to make this fear subside

 

CHORUS:

And ‘Pray for Me Tonight’

 

VERSE 2:

When the spring begins to shine
I’ll send word back to you to let you know I’m fine

Lord I wish you’d come along
Because what good are dreams if you can’t share them with someone?

 

VERSE 3:

When the winter snow has fallen
If you haven’t heard from me, it probably means your son is gone
But don’t feel badly form my life
Cause’ if I’d stayed there with you, I’d still be dying inside

 
Lyrics

8. Pray For Me Tonight
Luke Cunningham & Part Time Heroes  

Murder

VERSE 1:

I’m getting away with murder
I’m laying low and out of sight
The last thing that I wanted was to hurt her
When I killed Elizabeth last night

VERSE 2:

I’m getting away with murder
I’m on the first train out of town
To somewhere where the just won’t catch me
They won’t point their fingers at me
If I’m not around to defend myself

 

BRIDGE:

“Fool,” they’ll say “You never knew what you had.”
But if this is for the better tell me “Why does she feel so bad?
“Fool,” they’ll say, screaming “you never knew what you had.”
If this is for the better tell me Why does she feel so bad?

 

VERSE #3:

I’m getting away with murder
The gunman’s name just aint known for sure
She’s getting away with murder
It killed me as much as it killed her

 
Lyrics

9. Murder
Luke Cunningham & Part Time Heroes  

Standing In Place

VERSE 1:

A year can fly by in a town with no seasons
And I would call you on the phone if I could make up a reason
But I can’t, so I won’t-cause my voice would sound alone
And yours would only sound like you moved on

VERSE 2:

You’ve got a cinematic life.
You’ve got your perfect apartment
I should have never guessed the ending based upon the way it started
The taxi came and pulled away, and you couldn’t even wave
And I hear from all your friends that you moved on

VERSE 3:

I can’t help but think about you on these late night drives
When I smoke cigarettes just to pass the time
I’ve crossed more people than I have state lines and it keeps me wondering
Is it true when we say that ‘bad timing’ was to blame?
Cause to me that pleasing sound is just an easy way out
I could take but I won’t, ‘cause I’m sure we both would know
That it’s something that you say to just move on
Yeah, it’s something that we say to just move on

 
Lyrics
