Track Name: Carolina
CAROLINA
(A. CALVANO)

I heard a cry in the night
Our love is all i have inside
I couldn't look away,
not hearing what you say

My heart fell lazy,
and did as i pleased
You’re all that i know,
just let things grow

If love is feeling it’s a mystery to me
It’s something that i’ll guess i’ll never know
Carolina wont you call?

And now i have seen
Soon i’ll be on one knee
’til death do us part
I’ve known it from the start

If love is feeling it’s a mystery to me
It’s something that i’ll guess i’ll never know
Carolina wont you call?

Never walk away
Never walk away

If love is feeling it’s a mystery to me
It’s something that i’ll guess i’ll never know
Carolina wont you call?

Carolina won’t you call?
Track Name: Clean Trouble
Clean Trouble
(A. Calvano)

Morning floor boards are freezing
and the darkness tells me that i’m all alone
Read the letter that you left on our bedside table
Hinting you have gone and done something wrong

You’ve been causing trouble
You’ve been causing trouble for me

And i’m counting down the days ’til you,
until you come clean

Waking it’s been harder without you
There’s nobody to tell my morning joke
All my friends, said boy you got to get out there
But the letter she wrote was all that i know

You’ve been causing trouble
You’ve been causing trouble for me

And i’m counting down the days ’til you,
until you come clean

Yes I am

Down the street, I see your face
in the things we used to do
My memories i cant replace
CLEAN TROUBLE
(A.CALVANO)

what more can i do
I wanna know, I wanna see
That you feel my pain,
But it’s just not the same

You’ve been causing trouble
You’ve been causing trouble for me

And i’m counting down the days ’til you,
until you come clean

Yes I am, yes I am
All that you done, all that you done lord
Tell me you’re wrong, tell me that you’re wrong

Well i’m counting down the days ’til you,
until you come clean
Track Name: Stand In The Middle
STAND IN THE MIDDLE
(A. CALVANO)

When I was a young boy, searching for an answer
of what i should be
We’ve taken things for granted, all of this life
missed opportunities

And you and I we grow
Into a work machine, looking to redeem
And you and I we breathe
Always wanting more, i’m scared for what’s in store

And all that we’ve been told, to stand in the middle
And all that we’ve been told, to stand in the middle

The challenges the lie, keep us restless at night
racing through our minds
And all the dreams we’ve tried, the battles lost and won
keeping us alive

And you and I we grow
Into a work machine, looking to redeem
And you and I we breathe,
Always wanting more, i’m scared for what’s in store

And all that we’ve been told, to stand in the middle
And all that we’ve been told, to stand in the middle

No longer stand in the middle
No longer stand in the middle
Track Name: Shades of Blue
SHADES OF BLUE
(A. Calvano / F. Montgomery)

We had it all, but I let you go
I hope you found your way out of this town
I just want you know
You held my feet on the ground

But I keep falling when i think of you
And all my dreams now have a shade of blue

The night can my enemy
I can drink myself to sleep
Nothing left to bleed
And i know, I know, that hope is all that i need

But I keep falling when i think of you
And all my dreams now have a shade of blue

Its gonna be just fine
Yeah, wake up in the morning and take my time
The sun will shine tomorrow just let it shine

In my blood, in my bones
In my heart, in my soul
In our blood, in our bones
In our hearts, in our soul

Come so far, come so far
Come on and let it shine
Come so far, come so far
Come on and let it shine

Cause i know you’re not coming home
Track Name: Blood Moon
BLOOD MOON
(A. Calvano)

It was the 8th of March,
1840
The Whyte brothers had enough
Gathered up their employees

They rounded them all up
The whole entire clan
Eighty lives are gone
Slaughter was the plan

Blood Moon, telling me all those lies
Blood Moon, giving me alibis
Blood Moon, look us in the eyes
Because a Blood Moon shines tonight
Yeah it’s shining bright, you know it’s shining bright

Down at Fighting Hills,
It was a massacre
Taken with their guns
the whole tribe but one

His name was Lanky Bill
Survived for one more month
Until he got shot down
By George McNamara

Blood Moon, telling me all those lies
Blood Moon, giving me alibis
Blood Moon, look us in the eyes
Because a Blood Moon shines tonight
Yeah it’s shining bright, you know it’s shining bright

What have we taken? Identity
What should be taken? Responsibility
We keep on ignoring
Well it’s murder can’t you see?
Well i’ll ask you question and make you think again
You’re gonna think again, we’re gonna make you think again
Track Name: She Feels Like Home
She Feels Like Home
(A. Calvano)

In the corner wearing red
Thoughts are running through my head
Look in a green eyed stare
Introduce her to my friends

To be loved, love, love, love
To be loved, love, love, love

And now i’m sitting at the bar
Thinking things have gone too far
Drinking with a dirty smile
Wake up in the morning full of denial

I’m coming on down, down, down, down
Coming on down, down, down, down

I know you’re sitting all alone
Waiting for beep beep by the phone
I shout to worlds unseen unknown
She feels like home

She feels like home, home
She feels like home, home, home, home

And now i’m sitting on her couch
She Feels Like Home
(A.Calvano)

And we begin to muck about
I drank up all her wine
She said that’s ok as long you’re feeling fine

Thanks for coming around
Coming around

I know you’re sitting all alone
Waiting for beep beep by the phone
I shout to worlds unseen unknown
She feels like home

She feels like home, home
She feels like home, home, home, home

She’s feeling like home!
She’s feeling like home!
Track Name: Wolves
Wolves
(A. Calvano)

My mother, she once said
That don’t cares made to care
My father, with his dark eyes
Saying don’t you live this life

But the wolves they’ll come for me
Yeah the wolves they’ll come for me
Staring at the sun, we’ll you could’ve been anyone
But the wolves they’ll come for me

My sister, with her eyes shut
Makes forgetting hard enough
My brothers, everywhere
Don’t you live in fear I care

But the wolves they’ll come for me
Yeah the wolves they’ll come for me
Staring at the sun, we’ll you could’ve been anyone
But the wolves they’ll come for me

Yeah you know they come
Yeah you know they come

Staring at the sun, we’ll you could’ve been anyone
But the wolves they’ll come for me
Track Name: She's Alright
She's Alright
(A. Calvano)

I gotta suitcase full of pillows
Cause I never knew where i’d sleep
Most of the time find a bed
And buried it underneath
Until I met the one
And she whispered with her eyes
I am here, you are mine,
don’t you run and hide

She’s Alright

My devil’s cut forgotten
Out in the great unknown
Sometimes when I reflect
It brings a shiver to my bones

Jumping through a window
Leaving a bed cold
It’s ok i’m proud of you son
That’s what i’ve been told

She’s Alright
She’s Alright

You’re telling me, you’re telling me yeah!
The devil screams, you’re killing me yeah!
She’s alright, she’s all

The fire that I swallowed
Never doused the flames
just like a hungry lion
searching for some prey

The thought it soon passes
My soul knows the score
It can get confusing
Like a herbal carnivore

She’s Alright
She’s Alright

You’re telling me, you’re telling me yeah!
The devil screams, you’re killing me yeah!
She’s alright, she’s alright, she’s al

You’re telling me, you’re telling me yeah!
The devil screams, you’re killing me yeah!
She’s alright, she’s alright, she’s alright, she’s alright
Track Name: A Hotel in Brunswick
Hotel in Brunswick
(A. Calvano)

Last night I woke up in a hotel in Brunswick
Thinking i’d never see again
And a voice that laid beside me
Will always be friend

Smile is it real? No it’s not
I have spent all the love that i’ve got
Well others are busy shaking hands
Their time is on demand

One drink it turns into four
City of dreams, i’ve heard before
Something few would only understand
Open mind is her command

Last night I woke up in a hotel in Brunswick
Thinking i’d never see again
And a voice that laid beside me
Will always be friend
Track Name: Ode To Joe
Ode To Joe
(A. Calvano / M. Pitman)

Joe was man, who worked on the land
Saving all his pennies for his wife
Some of them would say he worked everyday
Scrounging was the way of his life

I’m saying Joe, where did you go?

Coming home one night, Joey got a fright
His wife was gone and all was lost
Crying with the sad, his wife was all he had
Rolling and a cursing in the dust

I’m saying Joe, where did you go?
I’m saying Joe, where did you go?

Joey wanted fun, he went and brought a gun
Shooting everybody in sight
He showed no remorse for his lonely divorce
Robbing from the poor and from the blind

I’m saying Joe, where did you go?
I’m saying Joe, where did you go?

Late one August night, a town stood in fright
They heard that Joe was to come
They tucked themselves in tight, they didn't want a fight
But old man Joe didn’t even come

His body they did see, against a lonely tree
His favourite gun resting in his hand
Yeah on one bended knee, he started to believe
And bang! There’s blood in the sand.

I’m saying Joe, where did you go?
I’m saying Joe, where did you go?
Track Name: Tell 'Em You Love 'Em
Tell Em You Love Em
(A. Calvano)

All of us have some frustration
You let it breed, it turns into hatred
The pain that you have to swallow
Will let your dreams follow

Your queuing in another line
Paying money to some other guy
Passwords, pin codes, your mind will explode
Your running short of time

All those payments and taxes all over
Like an insect that’s caught in a web
Well just turn to the one that annoys you
And tell ‘em you love ‘em instead

What do you really want to be?
Is a question that’s always haunted me
I want to travel the world with my beautiful girl
But what will be, will be

This life is just a test
When we pass it, we’ll get to rest
So live your life well, be true to yourself
And don’t be afraid to help

All those payments and taxes all over
Like an insect that’s caught in a web
Well just turn to the one that annoys you
And tell ‘em you love ‘em instead
