Track Name: All The Love
An athlete smoking up a pack
Outside in the cold in the corner
Waiting for her number one man to get into her bed
She’s got to get outside of it before the sun rise
He’s working when the sun goes down
Do your thing, baby, see you around
You got a fixation on your prize
That is why I love you
That is what i see your eyes
All the love, all the love, all the love
The musician getting loud, getting wilder
Dance party til there’s blood in my face
You’re gonna need it down in your corner
Before it’s dark and colder
Until you’re free and bolder
You got a fixation on your prize
That is why I love you
That is what i see your eyes
All the love, all the love, all the love
You could be the very best if you want to
You could be the very best do you want to?
Do you want to?
Do you want to?
Come on on baby let’s get out of town
Lace up them booties with a howl and a growl
Come on on baby let’s get out of town
Lace up them booties with a howl and a growl
Growl
Growl
Growl
Growl
Track Name: Midnight Moonride
There’s no place that I have to be
I’m picking out a song from the melody tree
In the sunshine, awaken my heart
Floating through life like a hummingbird
Just blowing up smoke to the sky
Trying to make love in so many words
Between the hellos and goodbyes
It’s another midnight moonride
Hitch a ride on the sun, take me away
I’m never gonna take it slowly
I’m never gonna waste my time
You and me are just a little bit lonely...
If I am here then I can’t be there
My reality could be anywhere that the wind blows
Just playing my part
Spending my winter in the desert sun
And summer in the last frontier
Felt my day had just begun
but now it’s the end of the year
It’s another midnight moonride
Hitch a ride on the sun, take me away
I’m never gonna take it slowly
I’m never gonna waste my time
You and me are just a little bit lonely
I’m never gonna take it slowly
I’m never gonna waste my time
You and me are just a little bit lonely
I’m never gonna take it slowly
I’m never gonna waste my time
You and me are just a little bit lonely
I’m just a little bit lonely
I’m just a little bit lonely
I’m just a little bit lonely
Track Name: Sentimental Love
Oooooh la la ooooh la la oooh Sentimental Love
Oooooh la la ooooh la la oooh Sentimental Love
Do I make your heart fly, up to the sky?
Do I make your palms sweat, when we’re holding hands?
I am just a teenager for your love
Oooooh la la ooooh la la oooh Sentimental Love
Oooooh la la ooooh la la oooh Sentimental Love
When we start kissing, do you feel the shock?
When I see you smiling, hope you never turn it off
I am just a schoolboy waiting at your bus stop
Do you do you do you get butterflies, when I pick you up?
When we’re together time just flies and I can’t get enough
Put your arms around me and hold on
I can’t believe you found me and it’s on
Oooooh la la ooooh la la oooh Sentimental Love
Oooooh la la ooooh la la oooh Sentimental Love
Oooooh la la ooooh la la oooh Sentimental Love
Oooooh la la ooooh la la oooh Sentimental Love
Track Name: Time On The Weekend
Working my way up the ladder again
Turning that seven into a ten
And I’m trying to be happy doing what I do
Lady in red welcome to my blue world
I’ve got time on the weekend to hang out
Let’s climb higher than a fiery flame
I love kicking my feet up on my bed
Smoke ‘em if you got ‘em
Relax slow down when it’s sunny
The time trap is working for the money but
where I sleep costs a lotta dollar bills
I keep on meeting beautiful girls
But they are so wrapped up in their own worlds
I can’t pin a tail on a donkey today
can’t find a way to make myself stay
I’ve got time on a weekend to hang out?
Align romance for an aching head
I love rollin’ back to your place
To put a smile onto your face
I need some of your attention
Come on give a little mention
Of me to your family and your closet crew
Track Name: Firecracker
I don’t know what I’m supposed to be
A firecracker or a character in history
I’m here for the party oh sleeping all day
Dropping out like a vampire in the sun decay
I don’t know what I’m gonna do
Am I part of a hurricane or in the wake of something new
I’m here for the party oh I’m staying all night
Snorting like a warthog running till we’re out of sight
Lighting the fuse no more sitting on the shelf
Counting to two, babe I’m gonna need your help
I don’t know where I’m supposed to go
Come home darling let’s take it nice and slow
I’m here for the party, oh, sleeping sideways
Gonna burn like a mad man in a fiery blaze
Lighting the fuse no more sitting on the shelf
Counting to two, baby gonna need your help…
Who’s got a wave to ride who’s got a garden I can walk in?
Who’s gonna step inside and hear the shit that I’ve been talking?
Give me all your truth and knowledge
Working on my brain just like I went to college
