Track Name: Wild At Heart
Ima light it up and kill it
You and I, we could hang a minute
What's your name and what's your story?
You can finish in the morning
Always like the new beginnings
Fire's on, and without misgiving

You can be all that I need for a while
You can be all that I need for a while

Said you like a girl free thinking
Had enough, now it's time to quit it
Now it's like I made my purchase
Holding on, and I can't return it
think that I will hurt you,
Love is not a virtue,
If your feeling like you need to
keep me chained up
Keep me caged up

You can be all that I need for a while
You can be all that I need for a while

See me from afar you dig it
Wild at heart, you can't catch my spirit
You can call me ice cold villain
Anything to sooth your feelings
See me like a light I'm brilliant
Turn it off, I don't think so baby

You can be all that I need for a while
You can be all that I need for a while
Track Name: The Jungle
In the jungle
We're all searching feeling all of this struggle
In the jungle, you can always find bad news
But you can live in a bubble
But you can live in a bubble

Half our struggle
to find the thing that takes me away that takes me away from here
Is seeing double, you divide yourself it two
But keep your eyes so their open
But keep your eyes so their open

Have you heard
there's a man out there who's soul is free
If you can find him
Solve the riddle
Can you show him to me

In the jungle
I can start to see a light in the tunnel
In the jungle
I can resonate with you
See a light in the tunnel
See a light in the tunnel

Have you heard
there's a man out there who's soul is free
If you can find him
Solve the riddle
Can you show him to me

As you walk beside me
You are beautiful
I can't take a fall
We can keep the rhythm

As you walk beside me
It's unusual
With your master plan
I can feel the rhythm
Track Name: The Ocean
Two lovers drank the potion
May they rest in peace, may they rest in peace, may they rest in peace
Laid there, without motion
Found them finally, found them finally
Hard swallowed was the notion
left so easily, left so easily, left us easily
You hated the commotion
May they rest in peace, may they rest in peace

Can you hear me love, I'm feeling like a silence
Can you see me love, I'm feeling like blinded
Can you feel me love, I'm colder now and diving
I have had enough, I'm sick and tired of trying

I stare at the ocean
You can't follow me, you can't follow me, you can't follow me
I sware your devotion, it can't swollow me, it can't swollow me
I have no emotion, you can't sing to me, you can't sing to me,
I live in the ocean, you can't harbor me, you can't harbor me

I'm afraid, I am petrified
Like a forest of dried out wood
He is dead I've been mortified
Like the preacher he said it could

Can you hear me love, I'm feeling like a silence
Can you see me love, I'm feeling like blinded
Can you feel me love, I'm colder now and diving
I have had enough, I'm sick and tired of trying
Track Name: Cold Blooded Man
Everybody told me
he was a cold, cold blooded man

I tell them that I love you
they don't seem to understand

Always running round town
When you should be here with me

And it's woman after woman
after woman after woman
and I can't eat, I can't sleep

And I'm trying
I'm trying
But you just can't get right

Know that I had loved you
When you pushed in his arms

Held no one above you
I can hardly speak your name

Now it's all about love
When it's you out in the cold

Cause I'm feeling that your feeling
That I'm feeling someone else
and you can't eat, you can't sleep

And you're crying,
You are crying
You are crying, and holding on

And I'm trying
Baby you are trying
and I'm trying
and holding on
Track Name: Judgment Day
Every day I thank my lucky stars
To have you, in my world
You know you had me done at boy meets girl
I thank God, for this feeling
And how I pray upon my lucky stars
to keep you, in my world
And how my love keeps growing day-by-day
I see you, in our children

The axe is lying at the root of the tree
So how you feel bout you and me
You'll know the feeling when it comes our way
How will we fair upon the judgement day

When you were planting the first seeds of doubt
I don't hear, what your saying
I thought this tree could only bear good fruit
I thank God, for this feeling
That night we walked along our separate ways
I can't lie, I was troubled
Cause you and me we've been a long long ways
But with me, in my bubble

The axe is lying at the root of the tree
So how you feel bout you and me
You'll know the feeling when it comes our way
How will we fair upon the judgement day
Instrumental section

I caught your eye and pulled you in real close
one day, in the kitchen
I felt around, I asked about your realest thoughts
one day, in the kitchen
And you confided in me, just real talk
"I won't lie, with this feeling"
"I think the fire comes for you and me"
"Don't despair, you are winning"

The axe is lying at the root of the tree
So how you feel bout you and me
You'll know the feeling when it comes our way
How will we fair upon the judgement day
The axe is lying at the root of the tree
I see you crying bout you and me
I know the feeling when it comes my way
You left me burning on the judgement day
Track Name: New Voodoo Queen
It’s been three years since you left me in the dirt
I can’t recognize myself you don’t know how this hurts
They say I haven’t been to church
They say I’m wrong but the whiskey works
I can’t find a drop of goodness left

You look like you’re feeling kind of green
Everything may not be like it seems
You know you can’t hold me down
You know that man on the edge of town
He has got the hold on life and death

Say, boy, make room on the scene
You’re looking at the newest voodoo queen
Say, boy, make room on the scene
You’re looking at the newest voodoo queen

He is six foot four and a whole lot more
He’s got a bag of tricks, he’ll use them quick
He don’t stop to look around
He’s the baddest voodoo man in town
He has got me underneath his spell

Say, boy, make room on the scene
You’re looking at the newest voodoo queen
Say, boy, make room on the scene
You’re looking at the newest voodoo queen
Track Name: Stay the Night
Baby take one look at my tonight
You can tell that I want to be free tonight
Let me run my hands right down your sides
Cause all the money in the world, and the diamonds and pearls can't be so nice
Tell your mama you'll be over next week sometime
Put that cell phone down and treat me right
Every girl has got her needs sometimes
So you can set your mind free, leave your body with me, and hold me tight

Though I told you!
Your money don't care for me
Said you always would be there for me

Can you see me at my place tonight?
You can say you've been busy but not tonight
Leave the wife and kids at home tonight
Because the dollars get made and the mortgage get paid but I'm not right
Now it's funny how you love me when you've got time
Keep me strung right round your finger, right right right
How your checks get cashed in tears sometimes
So don't you tell me settle down, I've been wearing your crown of thorns too tight

Though I told you
Your money don't care for me
Said you always would be there for me

Though I told you
Your money don't care for me
Said you always would be there for me

Thought I taught you well so prove me right
Baby can you keep me up all night?
You can free me from my world of pain
Stay the night and then go home again
Stay the night and then go home again
Track Name: Portrait of a Woman
Started in a dream
I was breathing for the very first time
Visions of a scene
I was free to make the choices all mine
All I could believe
I was through with him and he was on my mind
Life is shorter than it seems
Get to living or you'll be busy dying

I can't stand it
Will our life Begin
and our trouble see the end
I can't stand it
Will our life begin
or the devil settle in

Simple life it seems
So damn easy, why do I still find it hard
I'm a portrait of a woman
Who has taken all the heartaches and is scarred
You can take me out
You can take me out of comforts that I've known
Baby dare to take a chance on me!
I can feel you in my bones

I can't stand it
Will our life begin
and our trouble see the end
Ohh I can't stand it
Will our life begin
or the devil settle in

I want to say to you'
Say to you
I really love you you
you you you
You keep me up all night'
all of the night
I can't escape this thought
we could live this life
