Track Name: Top of the World
Top Of The World

This mountains glory starts with a story
About this couple who were looking for their dream in the west
They’d met this Texan, and he had convinced them
That he could show them a place were the living would be the best

There was no highway and the trip took three days
But when they saw the mountain the dream took shape

At the top of the world with the great big view
Up high the sky’s so blue
They looked around and they just knew
They’d found home

Staring out at that valley beneath their feet
They knew they’d found the place to build that dream

That makes me remember, that one September
I was packing up my life to chase the sunset
You see way back then, I was still searching
For something I could only see inside my head


3000 Miles and I found the way to live
But if you ask anyone who’s here, that’s why you take the risk

At the Top of the world with the great big view
Up high the sky’s so blue
Look around and you feel brand new
And right at home

Staring out at that valley beneath my feet
I swear you can see 100 years of dreams

Now it takes all kind to build a place like this
And their stories fill the sea to sky
From that small beginning to the whole world watching
Five rings, gold in their sights

I remember saying I couldn’t be staying
Maybe one season ‘cause I wanted to see it snow
But something took hold, when I rode that white gold
‘Cause I think I said that more than ten years ago

Chorus
Track Name: Ready to Roll
Ready To Roll

Yeah there’s a longing that I get when I see her every night
Leaning on that long bar with that whiskey to her right
She’s like a Midwest carnivore out looking for a treat
And tonight I’m hoping that I’m looking like what she eats

‘Cause I know one round is all I’ve got
Here I go, yeah its time I took my shot

Babe you drive me crazy
You’ve got my heart racing
I should be so lucky just to get you alone
C’mon I can’t wait forever, Girl its now or never
Grab the dice, Hold on tight,
Baby ‘cause I’m ready to roll

Well she’s like the kind of girl my mamma always warned about
But I’ll heed that warning in the morning when she’s sneaking out
She’s every dirty dream I ever thought I could suppress
Why do I even think I’ve got the will to resist?

‘Cause I don’t, I’m throwing caution to the wind
Here I go, yeah boys I’m diving in

Chorus

I hear Johnny Cash coming on the Jukebox (yeah)
I think he’s telling me to walk that line
If I confess to what it is I’ve been thinking
She’s gonna think I want to commit a crime



Well my words were hanging out there like a bird on a wire
It was like somebody stopped the clock and she got real quiet
She threw her shot back, she looked down at those dice and she said
“Well that looks like a seven boy, this must be your night”

Babe you drive me crazy
You’ve got my heart racing
I should be so lucky and I won’t leave alone
C’mon I can’t wait forever, Girl its now or never
Grab the dice, Hold on tight,
Baby ‘cause I’m ready to roll
Track Name: I Ain't Gonna Say Goodnight
I Aint Gonna Say Goodnight

C'mon is all that she says
But I know what she means
An hour later we're down at Reds
I'm already three drinks deep

The band plays
and she heads out to the dance floor
She starts to move in time
She shoots a look that tells me just what I’m in for
I think its gonna be a long night

We're ripping it up
We’ll get the party started
Aint gonna stop until we see the daylight
Jacked up, half cut and ready for anything you’ve got
The day is gonna have to wait, Cause I aint gonna say goodnight

There must be a full moon tonight
Cause it feels like a free for all
Everybody’s got the same idea
They’re gonna raise the roof and tear down the walls (howl)

The beers flowing and the whole joints heaving
Friday night has finally arrived
I look around and I see just what we’re in for
I think we're gonna go all night

We're ripping it up
We’ll get the party started
aint gonna stop until we see the daylight
jacked up, half cut and ready for anything you’ve got
The day is gonna have to wait, Cause I aint gonna say goodnight

You’ve got my head spinning round
But I aint even close to going down

We're gonna be up
This parties barely started
We ain't gonna stop until we see daylight
But the suns up, and I’m feeling rough and you ask me if I’ve had enough
Well….No way baby

Chorus
Track Name: Any Other Way
Any Other Way

Yeah its been awhile for you and me
It took time to write this story
Yeah the years flew by but we did alright
And made a few good memories

But sometimes she still gets down
She misses yesterday somehow
The way she looked and felt, her younger self
She thinks that time has turned it all around

But when she says she looks like someone else
I can only smile and say

Baby you’re still the same
You take my breath away
Just like that girl you think you used to be
And after all this time
You’re eyes still shine
And I wouldn’t want you any other way

I watch her look into that glass
And lately she hasn’t been smiling back
She only sees the lines that mark the time
And sometimes she gets so sad
Come over here and take my hand
I’m gonna make you understand
How you’re still the girl that makes my world
The best place that I’ve ever been

C’mon Baby can’t you see
You still look just like my dreams

Chorus
Track Name: Ain't What I Need
Ain’t what I need

Don’t think that I don’t know what your doing
You might think your Meryl Streep, but baby you’re not fooling me
You said that you were rushing out so you could go and help your mama
But I’m watching you walk up his stairs from across the street

And that don’t look like your mama’s house to me

Oh I can’t take it anymore
Each night your sneaking out the door
Telling me another story about some place you won’t be
Oh I can’t take it anymore
So I’m locking up the door
Its that last time that your gonna get the best of me
This aint what I need

You say, “No it’s not like that at all”
I never saw what I saw you were just helping your girlfriend out
I can only shrug my shoulders, smile and say maybe
But can you tell me whose voice is breathing heavy here on our machine


‘Cause that don’t sound like any girlfriend to me

Oh I can’t take it anymore
Each night you’re sneaking in the door
Telling me another story about some place you’ve never been
Oh I can’t take it anymore
So I’m headed for the door
It’s the last time that your gonna get the best of me
This aint what I need

The suns coming up on a brand new day
And your heels are click clacking as your sneaking up the front pathway
You’ve probably got your story all worked out
Well you can save it sweetheart
I won’t be around

Oh I can’t take it anymore
Each time you your sneaking in the door
Telling me another story about some place you’ve never been
Oh I can’t take it anymore, so I’m running for the door
It’s the last time that your gonna hear from me
This ain’t what I need
Track Name: Here
Here

Boy I think you’re gonna get pulled under
Or you’d better learn to swim away
Do you think that you’re acting under your own power
‘Cause I think that she’s got something else to say

She’s got you under cover
She’s blocked out all the lights
She’s like a jealous lover that holds so tight
One day when you wake up you’ll see its clear
And you’ll wonder how you got here

Boy this is some kind of situation
Yeah it’s a deep deep deep hole you are sitting in
You knew what she would do but she still tempted you
You thought that you would always win
But then the rules of the game went and changes when you weren’t looking

Chorus

Boy you’d better sit down and listen
Don’t you turn and walk away
You need more to get the same sensation
You can’t win this game

Chorus
