Track Name: Take All of Me
I’m kinda like a bat flying out of hell
And you know this about me oh so well
Sometimes I got a smile and
Other times I’m sick and tired

But you take all of me
Yeah, you take all of me

Sometimes I get selfish and so mean
Vodka don’t mix well with insecurity
And the folks that I hang around
Always seem to let me down

But you take all of me
Yeah, you take all of me

Well, I’ve seen love a time or two
Love that don’t always seem so true
Bits and pieces that they seem to choose
To love and others they don’t
Oh, woah, not you darlin’

You take all of me
Yeah, you take all of me

And I wanna say thank you
Thank you darlin’, thank you darlin’
Yeah, I wanna say thank you,
Thank you for being you

Track Name: Hummingbird
Flowers are so lovely on the vine
Like the way that I do love you in my life
I could clip your wings, tell you not to fly
But you've gotta share the good you've got inside
The sun will set and soon you'll have to leave
Where you'll go is wild mystery
You're living by the moon, you sleep next to the sea
If we're meant to be, you will come back to me

Fly away, fly away, hummingbird, fly away
It's time for you to go on your own way
Fly away, fly away, hummingbird, fly away
And if you might come back to me someday,
Hummingbird, stay

Anytime I've had somewhere to go
Noone and nothing could ever tell me no
You've made up your mind, I wish it wasn't so
But I will learn to live on my own
I heard you might be headed back this way
Tell me that you're headed home to stay
Could this be a dream? Is my mind playing games?
Hummingbird, I hope you hear me when I say

Fly away, fly away, hummingbird, fly away
It's time for you to go on your own way
Fly away, fly away, hummingbird, fly away
And if you might come back to me someday,
Hummingbird, stay

Oh oh oh oh why won't you stay?
Track Name: Hey Lady
Hey lady, you dyed your hair again
It's so hard to recognize my old friend
So lady, remember way back when
You told me that everyone had it in for you, for you

The sun won't shine any brighter, baby
We know you want more than you can see
She said, "It's not that I smoke to help me breathe,
I just know, when I leave, that the sun will have a symphony"

My lady, the moon is not around
You dug yourself into the ground
So lady, with the clouds around your tombstone
I have pity for your words that wrote my song for you, for you

The sun won't shine any brighter, baby
We know you want more than you can see
She said, "It's not that I smoke to help me breathe,
I just know, when I leave, that the sun will have a symphony"
Track Name: Oleander
I'm on the corner, eyes on the wall
I put myself in time-out, but I'm not in trouble
They said, "Think about what you did," but I did no wrong
Another pack of cigarettes, another pack gone

Oh la la oh la la oleander
Why'd you have to cut me down, wildflower?

Crimson colors in blueberry skies
I'm not very funny, but I don't tell lies
Well, okay heaven, I'll be in the yard
AK-47 aimed right at my heart

Oh la la oh la la oleander
Why'd you have to cut me down, wildflower?

Just like the wind in the trees
I am wild, I am free

Oh la la oh la la oleander
Why'd you have to cut me down, wildflower?
Track Name: Snake Eyes
He was the sixth,
and seven words, they were comin'
I kinda kinda kinda knew it
But just like the wings I didn't have
He flew over my love, and I said,

Fool me once, fool me twice
Fool me once, fool me twice
Shame on me, shame on me
You got snake eyes

Once in a blue
Blue, blue, blue, will you please speak your mind?
But the sky spoke for you
So I'm speaking mine
Was he a lover?
Or was he a lay?

Fool me once, fool me twice
Fool me once, fool me twice
Shame on me, shame on me
You got snake eyes

All the while I was looking for someone to hold
All the while I was looking for someone to hold me
Looking at you baby, I didn't see much else
But now I hope you go to hell

Fool me once, fool me twice
Fool me once, fool me twice
Shame on me, shame on me
You got snake eyes
Track Name: Young Troubadour
You are the love of my life
I couldn't shake you if I tried
If you were whiskey or rye
I'd be drunk all the time
So you've seen me from afar
Well, I've seen you, too
And we still got this distance here, honey
It's time I'm coming home soon

'Cause I wanna wake up by your side
You give love just the way I need
Darlin', please please please
Don't think I don't love you
Just 'cause I had to leave

Honey, you know I'm a troubadour
A vagabond to the bone
It's the spirit you love in me
Let her go on her own
I've seen a light inside you
The kind to make me go blue
A love I plan to hold onto
Honey, I'm coming home soon

'Cause I wanna wake up by your side
You give love just the way I need
Darlin', please please please
Don't think I don't love you
Just 'cause I had to leave

Darlin' don't you see
I had to be free
It's not some selfish kind of thing
But I've got my needs
So, you let me fly away
The kind of love that I wanna stay
If there is one thing I know to be true
It's I love you

Oh yes, I do
Honey, I love you
Track Name: Long Ride Home
Honey tell me, what do you take me for?
All you give me, I know I deserve more
What is life without a broken bone or two?
It's plain to see that I made good for leavin' you
Honey tell me, what do you take me for?

Oh, I know, it's gonna be a long ride home
Oh, I know, it's gonna be a long ride home
I'm going to the place I call my own
Oh, I know, it's gonna be a long ride home

Momma taught me from an early age
You become what you hate, don't keep your rage
You've been hurt before, so you brace yourself
All the while, you've been hurting someone else
Momma taught me from an early age

Oh, I know, it's gonna be a long ride home
Oh, I know, it's gonna be a long ride home
I'm going to the place I call my own
Oh, I know, it's gonna be a long ride home

Get me golden, or just get me green
Get me back to the people I love, the people I need
My whole life, I was born to leave
But this long ride home, be good to me

Oh, I know, it's gonna be a long ride home
Oh, I know, it's gonna be a long ride home
I'm going to the place I call my own
Oh, I know, it's gonna be a long ride home
Track Name: When the Heart Belongs to a Man
Sometimes I wanna go wherever you go
Let me live in your big black coat
But then strikes a chord, I don't feel that way no more
No, no, I am finally, finally free

I have waited for this moment
It's time to do just what I can
But it's hard to know what the heart desires
When the heart belongs to a man

Summers fade from winters into spring
Always fight for your right to just be free
Well, here I stand, hat in hand
If I'm gonna go, here's my chance
But there's a heart of gold that I can't leave

I have waited for this moment
It's time to do just what I can
But it's hard to know what the heart desires
When the heart belongs to a man
Track Name: Thanks Insomnia
What could you know if you don't know nothing at all?
What could you feel if you think that this ain't real?
Thanks insomnia, you're killin' me and he's sleeping softly
Well, I'm a girl who is mad as all can be
I'm pissed that I could never fall in love madly
Thanks insomnia, you're killin' me and he's sleeping softly

Well, I go and you never know
So I stay, and I'm wide awake
Watching you sleep
ain't enough recognition for me

I guess in time I will find a place to rest
My head, my heart, and everything that I have left
Thanks insomnia, you're killin' me and he's sleeping softly
My guitar has strings attached to you
When they break, my music is broken, too
Thanks insomnia, you're killin' me and he's sleeping softly

Well, I go and you never know
So I stay, and I'm wide awake
Watching you sleep
ain't enough recognition for me

Whiskey drinkers, though they slur their phrases
They all know the phases of the moon
Midnight cries, and late lullabies
So, I sing to you

Well, I go and you never know
So I stay, and I'm wide awake
Watching you sleep
ain't enough recognition for me
Track Name: My Little Mercury
My little Mercury
Do you have a part of me?
If you do, please treat me true
My little Mercury

Oh, oh

Deep inside my heart is love for only you

My little Mercury
Tell me what you see
Soft shade of blue, take me with you
My little Mercury

Oh, oh

Deep inside my heart is love for only you

Oh, oh

Deep inside my heart is love for only you
Track Name: Ululo
Here we go with pathos again
Make a new stranger old kin
Eyes straight ahead when you feel the first move
And here I am looking at you
Hey, could she find a place
If he could just figure her name?

Ululo

Here we go talking trash
Right through the teeth of our laughs
Somewhere in slur, there must be a girl
Here you are looking at her
Hey, could she find a place
If he could just figure her name?

Ululo

Every time I walk past that house
I always think of you
Where you been?
Where you going?

Ululo
Track Name: Ukulele Song
I was taught real young how to shoot a gun
But I aimed too high and I shot the sun
The dark side won
Oh, but it didn't take long just to take it too far
I kept on shootin' and I made me some stars
You know who you are

Well, if the sky ain't bullet proof
Neither is my heart
I've learned to love a life
left deep in the dark
'Cause when you left that day
I learned that I loved you, anyway
It's like a permanent phase

The full moon rises when the sun sets
So I tell myself this is as good as it gets
But I've worked with less
Well, I'm constantly changing
Waxing and waning
Hoping my baby will come out and save me
But I know he's lazy

Well I bought myself a ring
to lessen the void
They say there's a million things
wrong with my boy
But when he left that day
I learned that I loved him anyway
It's like a permanent phase

Every now and then
my mind gets crazy
But he said, "Baby I don't care,
'cause you amaze me"
And when he left that day
he knew that he loved me, anyway
It's like a permanent phase
