Track Name: Everywhere To Go
Everywhere To Go
Ian Sherwood

Verse
How many rings or shades of plaid
Must I wear to cover my sad
Before my mood goes to good from bad
Before my bruises fade to pale from black

There's a hum of the city like an FM radio
Comin from the back rooms and the corridors
The girls are dressing like the 80's videos
I want to dance, but maybe, oh

I was never good at dancing, but I was pretty good at moving slow

Chorus
Tonight, The morning's not written yet
There's no folding no hedging bets
The only podium is gold

Tonight, Forget the rumours forget regret
I'm looking sharp but I'm getting bent
All dressed up any everywhere to go

Verse
Spending for the money that I made in the week
Barefoot on the cobble stones of water street
The girls are laughing they're at me
But I can't hear them, no I can't feel the blows

I was never good at dancing but tonight watch me go

Chorus

Bridge
Come on everybody let's dance tonight!

Chorus
Tonight, The morning's not written yet
There's no folding no hedging bets
The only podium is gold

Tonight, Forget the rumours forget regret
I'm looking sharp but I'm getting bent
All dressed up any everywhere to go

Tonight, The morning's not written yet
There's no folding no hedging bets
All dressed up any everywhere to go

I've got everywhere to go
Track Name: Non Believer
Non Believer
Ian Sherwood

Chorus
Oh, I'm in love with a non believer
She's in Love with the faith in me
Oh, I'm in love with a non believer
She's in Love with the faith in me

Verse
Oh woman, where you going?
Let your demons rest
You're good on Monday, then you're bad in Sunday
Spend the next five days in bed

We drink wine, do a little living in your living room
Then I wake up you're gone
Doing what she pleases, keeps me on my knees
Yeah I know she knows, I'll be there when she's done

Chorus

Verse
She likes a little light in her room, I like a little salt in my wounds
Makes a good thing taste better
Cross my heart and hope to die
If that woman don't kill, I think I'm going to save her life

Chorus

Bridge
She's in love with the faith in
She's in love with the faith in....

Chorus
Track Name: Stop, Don't Fall In Love
Stop, Don't Fall In Love
Sherwood

Verse
Coloured streamers on her ten speed
And a Marlboro in her mouth
Corner kiss on my cheek
And then she glides down Eisenhauer

Four nights in gin joints and the glow of SoHo
Five days in bed
Held up a lamp post
As I smile on what she said

Chorus
Stop, don't fall in love
It wrecks everything
Stop, don't fall in love
you know what I mean
Stop, don't fall in love
Even good love will go bad
Stop, don't fall in love
It's too late for that

Verse
We lost our tempers in the rain
We lost our tan lines in the sun
Spent every nickle I saved
Swearing to God that I was done

You showed up on Sunday
Wearing last night's party dress
You showed up in my dreams again
I was in bed with someone else

Chorus

Verse
I had love in Baltimore
But she cut me down like cain
Found some more in an old four door
But she melted in the rain

My eyes have burned so many times
They're like torches in my head
Love gets no good reviews and you're more bad news
But here We go again
Track Name: Fireman's Ball
The Firemen's Ball
Ian Sherwood

Verse
I showed up drunk
At the firemen's ball
We picked a hell of a joint
To end it all

You brought your matches
I brought my lighters and my magnifying glasses
We started a war
That ended in ashes

Chorus
We burned it all
We burned it all
At the firemen's ball

Verse
You said our bedroom was vacant
You'd grown complacent
So I spiked the punch
I don't know where my head went

There's no going back
When I told you bout the girl in Chiliwack
We stared a war
Burned everything black

Chorus

Bridge
We burned it all
While the town danced a waltz
We burned it all
We burned down the house
While the town danced a waltz
At the fireman's ball

Chorus

Outro
Ashes and ashes and dust to dust
nothing remains of us
Track Name: Me Or Your Money
Me or your money
Ian sherwood

Verse
Open my eyes
And what do I see
You on my bed
Swearing at me, sayin'

Holding court
With my last fist of dollars
Drinks are on me boys
That's when you holler, sayin'

Pre
Me or your money
Me or your money
Well you got this wrong
My love's on the dole
I ain't got no money
So be careful what you wish for

Chorus
I need love, you need nickles and dimes
But it's, me or your money
Ooo, what can I say?
I see love, you see dollar signs
But it's, me or your money
Well I hope I find some money some day

Verse
All my doors are locked
And the lights gone out
No gas in my car
Empty bank account, still it's

Pre
Me or your money
Me or your money
Well you got this wrong
My love's on the dole
I ain't got no money
So be careful what you wish for

Chorus

Verse
Search my pockets
I can't find no joy
I can't find no money
Only your voice sayin

Me or your money
Me or your money
Well got this wong
If you think it through
My money's like time
And it's just passing through

Chorus
Track Name: Big Love
Big Love
Ian Sherwood

Chorus
Oh my love, my big love,
Centennial lights, they shine above
Ten thousand hearts pass through the tolls,
Up on the bridge over our big love

Verse
There is a house for two down by the ocean blue,
The sweetest air in town blows through the sheets on the line
There's a little girl who hangs her shingle there,
When I'm on the road I hope she dreams of me at night

Chorus
Oh my love, my big love,
Centennial lights, they shine above
Ten thousand hearts, pass through the tolls,
Up on the bridge, over our big love

Verse
I've been gone how long well I just don't know,
I love a drive but sometimes I hate the road
The sun sets in the West as I'm heading East home,
The sky is bleeding but I'm feeling here is your love

Chorus
Oh my love my big love,
Centennial lights, they shine above
Ten thousand hearts pass through the tolls,
Up on the bridge over our big love

Bridge
I know I'm almost home my love, when I see the lights above

Chorus
Oh my love, my big love, Centennial lights, they shine above
Oh my love, my big love, Centennial lights, they shine above
Oh my love, my big love, Centennial lights, they shine above
Ten thousand hearts pass through the tolls,
Up on the bridge over our big love

Oh my love, my big love, Oh my love, my big love, Oh my love, my big love
Up on the bridge over our big love
Track Name: Kiss Me Quick
Kiss Me Quick
Sherwood

Verse
Kiss me quick
we're wasting time
Cut the light
Before we change our minds

What would you let me do

Verse
I steal your love
I'm stiff with greed
I take what's yours
What's yours I need

What will you let me do

Chorus
It's not right but it's right right now
It's not right but it's right right now
It's not right but it's right right now

Verse
Prying eyes
Have gone to sleep
Desperate hands search for you
In borrowed sheets

What will you let me do
Tonight

Chorus
It's not right but it's right right now
It's not right but it's right right now
It's not right but it's right right now

Outro
We need a lift
To feel alive
For heaven's sake kiss me quick
Before we die

Life is short
while we're alive
For heaven's sake kiss me quick
Tonight
Track Name: No Water
No Water
Ian Sherwood / RyLee Madison

Verse
He held on to his saddle bags,
A dusty whisper of a man from his younger days
As the last cattle die on the drought plains,
He cried waterless tears on his lover's grave

He tried everything there was to try,
Prayed to the heavens every sleepless night
But the grain won't grow if the ground is dry,
And you can't will the water from an Arizona sky

Chorus
No water for weeks only dark clouds,
No hope for miles in the bible belt
Heat is a thief you can't out-run,
And the hurt won't go if the rain don't come

Verse
On this land that his family's owned,
For generations of drought that have come and gone
He fell to his knees in the scorching sun,
He said, "How do I do what my daddy done?"

Chorus
No water for weeks only dark clouds,
No hope for miles in the bible belt
Heat is a thief you can't out-run,
And the hurt won't go if the rain don't come

Verse
Fast forward a century,
Legend has it he didn't leave
He was the last to die in his family,
And when you walk this soil you can feel his grief

Chorus
No water for weeks only dark clouds,
No hope for miles in the bible belt
Heat is a thief you can't out-run,
And the hurt won't go if the rain don't
No water for weeks only dark clouds,
No hope for miles in the bible belt
Heat is a thief you can't out-run,
And the hurt won't go if the rain don't come
