Track Name: Could Be Better
I hang my dreams out on the line now- wring em out
Leave them to bleach out in the sun
I come home late and get up early every day
Try to get so tired I don't remember what I done
I can't sleep in this tenement house
I hear roaches and fleas play
A cold beer in the afternoon sun
Try to hear the ocean in the freeway

Could be better- could be worse
Ain't no blessing- ain't no curse
Could be better but it could be worse

I gave it up a long long time ago
Now I don't believe in destiny
These long lines and these telephone wires
Where my two feet will never carry me
No reason to try and keep my head up
I gave it up- I let it go
No reason to believe that anything will change
In my living room alone
Track Name: Little Devil
I got a little devil in me but I keep my angels in reach
Track Name: Too Hot
Your body is so hot but your words are so cold
Track Name: Take a Shine
I'll take a shine to you and honey you take a shine to me
We can blind everybody we see if you take a shine to me
Track Name: Moonstricken
Dreaming or awake no mistake I don't give a damn
There's just something about this glow I know just where I am
Track Name: Face Up
You hold up a mirror out of love
I want to turn like a coward and run
To see what a man is really made of
You gotta see what he does
When it's time to Face Up
Track Name: Earn It
All I hear when I walk in is "Baby baby where you been?" but you never ever ever ever call me.
Track Name: Volcano
Don't you know this heart is a volcano?
Track Name: Dollars to Doughnuts
Dollars to donuts- no time to settle down
