Track Name: Tough Love
You’ve been working on yourself
I’ve been spending my days on the bottom shelf
I’m hoping you figure it out
‘Cause I’ve been moving on
Oh just somehow

Weeks been going back to days
I’ve been sleeping like a baby I must say
So much fighting just got in the way
I loved our time but
One night I thought

I don’t
Want to fight
Oh we best
Say goodnight
To the way it has been
I’m throwing to the wind
Such tough love

Making strides be they slow
Got a haircut a new coat
And oh lord
I know you’re stuck in the past
But for sure
The future looked bright
On the night I decided

I don’t
Want to fight
Oh I think we should
Say goodnight
To the way it has been
I’m throwing to the wind
Such tough love

You said baby I’ll treat you right
And I believed you I really did
Running ‘ways not treating right
That’s what led me to giving in

Said it’s not fair to fight
Oh I think we should say goodnight
To the way it has been
I’ve thrown to the wind
Such tough love
Track Name: You Are (Out Of Your Mind)
It’s been some time since I’ve had this
You’ve got me going in a way, I can’t complain
Hasn’t been this bad since that November
When I was wishing on a dream
That was to blame

I’ve been looking for someone who gets that I’ve lost it
Someone to understand my wits bid adieu long before
That I lost my mind long before you crossed it
And here I find myself falling like never before

You’ve got me going and I sure know why
You are out of your mind
Talking backwards and it sounds so right
You are out of your mind

Oh those eyes, what a blessing
Your starry frame of mind, that keeps me gazing
And then you tell me that you feel it too
Talking nonsense, I’ve said to you
I’m trying to tell you
I’m just as out of it too

You’ve got me going and I sure know why
You are out of your mind
Talking backwards and it sounds so right
You are out of your mind
You’ve got me going and I sure know why
You are out of your mind

You’ve got me going and I sure know why
You are out of your mind
Talking backwards and it sounds so right
You are out of your mind
You’ve got me going and I sure know why
You are out of your mind
Talking backwards and it sounds so right
You are out of your mind
Track Name: Your Person
Don’t you know you’ve got a way about you
And here I sit saying that I’m getting by without you
You couldn’t hang and now I’m hanging on to that
Trying to tell myself I’ll be fine
But the fact remains

I had you, I knew that way about you
Now here I sit faking that I’ll ever just forget about you
I left my keys on the coffee table there
Hoping that one day you’ll think
God, I want to go there

I thought you were my person to
Hang around with me, a couple hopeless fools
I hate the thought another day would go by
Without you by my side
I want to be your person in this life

Now I get up and it all seems unclear
I brush my teeth rinse it out with last night’s beer
I said my piece and I guess I’m at peace with that
But something on my shoulder is telling me
Don’t let this pass

I thought you were my person to
Hang around with me, a couple hopeless fools
I never thought another day would go by
Without you by my side
I want to be your person in this life

Who am I to tell you what to do
No one but a fool would think this should be through
So I’m begging, I’m pleading
Come back and say you want to be my person too

Hang around with me, a couple hopeless fools
I can’t bear the thought another day would go by
Without you by my side
I want to be your person
Let me be your person
I want to be your person in this life
Track Name: Illuminating Company
I never dreamed that in time I would find
Illuminating company as bright as your kind
Turning corners, little light to shine
But there you stand directing me
To guide in dark times

If you’d have told me two years ago
That I would need illuminating company just to find my way home
I’d have thought it better to be on my own
With no clue just how much I’d need
Your light on my road

And now I know the little good it does to glow by my lonesome
What’s the point if there’s no one to show
You said it best you said give yourself a rest
Light comes with the morning and I’ll be around
To wake you with it’s dawning

I never dreamed that in time I would find
Illuminating company as fine as your kind
Turning corners, where your light meets mine
There you stand directing me
My guide in dark times

And now I know
I won’t ask why you shine for me so
Track Name: I Could Show You Home
I could show you home a bit after this
I’m sure a cool walk could be nice
I’m not sitting here thinking I’m going to let you get out of this
Been taking chances ooh baby I won’t pass you by

I want to know you know that you’ve done it
You’re the culprit, stole my heart
And you’re still sitting there right like a fool
Snap me out of it
Let’s take our chances ooh baby I will treat you right
On the night I reach out a bit

So you’ve got to go - did I ask you
See the glow of hope in my eye
Ain’t it obvious, man take a hint
Guess it passed you
Let’s take our chances ooh baby don’t you pass me by
When tonight I reach out a bit

You should know if you’ve got to go
I insist, if you see fit
I could show you home
