Track Name: Negativity
This Negativity, has defeated me, for the last time
It ain't too hard to see, It'll be the death of me
If the sun keeps refusing to shine
I'll pull back the shade, let the lovelight in
It's a fight for my life I can't not win
This Negativity, has defeated me, for the last time

The thoughts that prey upon, little things that you've done wrong, are the worst kind
They make it hard to see, the forest for the trees, when the occupy your mind
They keep holdin' on, they won't let go
If they had their way, you'd never know
The thoughts that prey upon, little things that you've done wrong, are the worst kind

When all you haven't done, the things you miss become, an anchor holding you down
You gotta let 'em go, drop what you think you know, before you sink and drown
Those thoughts are like an angry sea, they'll hold you down, won't let you be
When all you haven't done, the things you miss become, an anchor

The hurt inside, your foolish pride, will only hold you back
I hope before you die, you will realize, you been on the wrong track
When you're struggling just to climb that hill
Well there's always a way, if you've got the will
Then Negativity, has defeated you, for the last time
Oh Negativity, has defeated me, for the last time
Oh this Negativity, has defeated you and me, for the last time
Track Name: Temptation
Chorus:
Lead me not into temptation, with your warm inviting arms
Even though my body's willing, another holds my heart
Please deliver me, from these wicked thoughts
Before they tear my world apart
Lead me not into temptation, for another holds my heart

can fee your gaze from across the room, there's a longing in your eyes
I can tell you know, I feel it too, should come as no surprise
And I could hold you in my arms, but my heart I can't deny
For there's one back home that I love so, And I can't bear to make her cry

Chorus

Out on this road, so all alone, It'd be so easy to give in
To a girl like you with so much charm, and that body built for sin
But I'll fight this off, like I always do, I'll go sleep alone again
For the one who holds my heart, I promised I'd love her till the end

Chorus
Track Name: King of California
Well, I left my home and my one true love
East of the Ohio River
My father said we'd never wed
For I had me no gold nor silver

But my darling dear, please shed no tears
But I think that it's fair to warn you
That I return to claim your hand
As the King of California

Over deserts hot and mountains cold
I traveled the Indian country
Whispering your name under lonesome skies
Remembering my only company

But my darling dear, please have no fear
For I think that it's fair to warn you
That I return to claim your hand
As the King of California

I went up from Sacramento town
To the Sierra gold fields
And I worked my stake on a riverbank?
Dreaming just how a rich man feels

Now my darling dear, listen here
For I think that it's fair to warn you
That I return to claim your hand
As the King of California

Now the dead man's lying at my feet
Who tried to steal my earnings
Yet I still recall your tender kiss
Though this bullet in my chest is burning

But my darling dear, please have no fear
For I think that it's fair to warn you
That I return to claim your hand
As the King of California

That I return to claim your hand
As the King of California

Track Name: Set Me Free
I've been tryin' to track you down, rollin' round from town to town
I catch a glimpse, then you're off on another road
I gave up everything but hope, I's at the end of my rope
Thought I'd lost it all, now I finally see

CH:
The peace that I seek, the one that can set me free
Has always been right here walkin' next to me
I'm tired of trying to be so strong, and this journey's been so long
I give it all to you, please won't you set me free

I guess I lost you long ago, where and when hell I don't know
I got caught up, tryin' to make it my own way
This world is cold they say, without a light to guide the way
I was lost for awhile, now I can finally see

CH x2
Track Name: Cross My Heart
This life, is always changing
Yo best look out, It'll sneak right up on you
A year ago today, we were rolling in the hay
Thought our love would always be true

Now I admit, I've been a little crazy
I've done my best to try and prove to you
I'm sorry for those bitter words but the ones you never heard
Are the ones that make me oh so sad and blue

Chorus:
Cause I miss you so, I don't want you to go
Please don't leave me here a cryin' all alone
Promise from your heart, we will never part
You are all I'll ever need, hope to die and cross my heart

The night you left my world was changed forever
My heart was split, broken right in two
Now I'm looking for a way, to make you see today
Time can't change the way I feel for you

Chorus

When you were here. wish I'd found the courage
To speak right up, tell you how I feel
But the time has come and gone, baby I was wrong
I hope some day these bitter wound can heal

Chorus
Track Name: Don't Think Twice, It's Alright
It ain't no use to sit and wonder why, babe
If you dont know by now
An' it ain't no use to sit and wonder why, babe
It don't matter anyhow

When your rooster crows at the break of dawn
Look out your window and I'll be gone
You're the reason I'm travelin' along
Don't think twice, it's alright

Well, it ain't no use in turnin' on your light, babe
That light I never knowed
An' it ain't no use in turnin' on your light, babe
I'm on the dark side of the road

Still I wish there was somethin' you would do or say
To try and make me change my mind and stay
But we never did too much talkin' anyway
So don't think twice, it's alright


So I'm walkin' down that long lonesome road, babe
Where I'm bound, I can't tell
But goodbye's too good a word, babe
So I'll just say fare thee well

I ain't sayin' you treated me unkind
You could have done better but I don't mind
You just kinda wasted my precious time
But don't think twice, it's alright
