Light Me Up


I don't really know you
But I hope we can relate
Oh…
I like to be excited
And I like to celebrate
Oh…
Oh…I'm asking you

If you’re feeling good
Is all I need to know
‘Cause you light me up
Oh, you light me up
When you’re good to go

And when you feel right
I'm electrified
‘Cause you light me up
Oh, you light me up
So tell me how ya feeling tonight
Tell me how ya feeling tonight

 

(So tell me, tell me, tell me… how you’re feeling tonight)

I like the sound of laughter
I like when your ass shakes

Oh…
Here we are together
Tonight I'm wide awake
Oh…I'm asking you
 

Chorus


I'm a looking for, looking for some
I'm a looking for a little action
I'm a looking for, looking for some
I'm a looking for a little passion
I'm a looking for a feel-good person
 

(So tell me, tell me, tell me… how you’re feeling tonight)

 

I'm a looking for a little action

I'm a looking for a little action

 

(So tell me, tell me, tell me… how you’re feeling tonight)

Pocket Knife

Honey I've gone all out
And I've been broken in
And when it pours on me
I can soak it all in

I'm alive
And my blood is pumping like a gas line
I got a edge I'm holding
I got a edge I'm holding
 

I got a rugged heart
I got a body made of blades
I'm gonna keep 'em sharp
Like a pocket knife
Oh, gotta dig in hard
Gotta handle every day
I’m gonna keep ‘em sharp
Like a pocket knife


It’s not about how it breaks
It’s how you’re fixing it
You gotta be all in one
For the life we're living in

I'm alive
And I've been cutting teeth for a long time
I got a edge I'm holding
I got a edge I'm holding
 

Chorus

 

Honey I'm all bruised up
From the places I've been
From the times I fell
From all the struggling

If you wanna make a point
Then you gotta have an edge
If you wanna make a point
Then you gotta have an edge

Like a pocket, pocket, pocket knife
Like a pocket, pocket, pocket knife

Only Temporary

 

You might be sleeping when he calls
You might be dreamin' that you’re in control
(no, no, no, no)
He’s only keeping you around ‘cause
You keep on, you keep on
Giving him a hand to hold

Say hun, say hun
Why eat the bitter ones
When you got something sweet?
Say hun, say hun
You need a better one
Not one to settle on
Just know that you got me


He only calls ya when he needs ya
‘Cause when he needs ya is
O
nly, only, only, only temporary

I'm gonna call ya
‘cause I need ya
Because I need to
Y
ou'll know I'll be, be, be there in the morning light
T
o see you in the morning light

Have it any way you want
You could be steady or be strung along
(no, no, no, no)
I'll get you bumping like a kick drum
He’s like a record
That keeps skipping on the same song

Say hun, say hun
Why eat the bitter ones
When you got something sweet?
Say hun, say hun
You need a better one
One for the longer run
Just know that you got me

 

Chorus

 

It’s only, only, only, only temporary

Hun, it’s only, only temporary….

Keep Or Lose

 

It’s been quiet for a while

Now there’s something making noises

It’s growing and it’s closing in

It’s time to make some choices

 

To stop or keep it going

To stay or say farewell

How bad could it really be?

Only time will tell...

 

Put out the light, put out the light, put out the light

Or let it glow

Put out the light, put out the light, put out the light

Or let it glow

 

Ride out the rain or roll on

What now, down to the wire

Blow out the flame or hold on

Watch out, here comes the fire now

 

It’s a make or break decision

So much on the line

Something’s gonna happen real, real soon

Running out of time

 

Put out the light, put out the light, put out the light

Or let it glow

 

Chorus

 

Put out your light or glow

Pull up the root or let it grow

Put up a fight or go

Pull up the root or let it grow

Hope that you’re right, hope that you’re right, hope that you’re right

Hope that you know

Hope that you’re right, hope that you’re right, hope that you’re right

Hope that you know

Build A Stage

 

Day breaks and a single man

With one hammer and two hands

He begins with a nail and plank

Steel pushing through the wood grain

And all the racket he makes from this one man crew

Draws another man seeking to build, too

Now with four strong arms on one design

The mallets move along in double time

 

Hey brother, it’s time to put your hands on

‘Cause we’re building a stage to stand on

Oh we’re building a stage to stand on

Getting taller and taller

From the ground it began on

And we’re building a stage to stand on

Oh we’re building a stage to stand on

 

When the day breaks again

The two men return to where they’ve been

To see the crowd of people gathered

With saws, ropes, and ladders

The cast of workers hoist and heave

And their labor sounds much like a symphony

So many heads and hands composing in

The last nails close and closing in

 

Chorus

 

Then it happens

The pounding ceases

And on the land

A structure stands made from thousands of pieces

Illuminated, standing strong

The stage is finished now

Built for all to stand on

 

Chorus

Nowhere To Be

 

My job is done for now at least

My calendar is filled with vacancies

In the days ahead I’m looking to

I’ve done all that’s been asked of me to do

So honey, now I’m through

Trying to impress

Now I’m taking off and cutting loose

 

There’s a clock and I’m off it

And it feels so delightful to have nowhere to be

‘Cause I got a pocket

With a little cash

Car with a tank of gas

And nowhere to be

 

With time to kill and days to seize

I could end up anywhere I please

The exciting places that I could roam through

Or I could melt into my couch at home, too

Either way I’ll use the time to decompress

Before I’m back again I’m cutting loose

 

Chorus

 

Sometimes my favorite plan is to have no plans at all

To unwind with no demand beforehand

It always won’t be, set or permanent

I’ll be back to work eventually

Soon I’ll be in use

But that’s irrelevant

‘Cause until then I’ll be cutting loose

 

Chorus

 

```````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````

 

Give Me All Your Doubt

 

“Give up, go home”

My favorite words to hear

Go on, throw stones

At me to keep for souvenirs

 

‘Cause I got no problem

With problems of people doubting me

I always dissolve them

I take pleasure making every little piece

 

Tell me I’m crazy, say it won’t work out

Just gimme, gimme, gimme all, gimme all your

 

It’s the maybes people talk about

Just gimme, gimme, gimme all, gimme all your doubt

 

I’m a long shot, I’m a toss up

I’m from underdog pedigree

You may not know me now but

I’ll make sure you’ll remember me

 

Chorus

 

From down and out, I come alive

From down and out, I come alive

From here and now, far and wide

From down and out, we come alive

 

Chorus

Say Hello Sometime

 

And as a matter of fact

There’s a time and a place we can both trace back to

Maybe a concert hall

Playing rock-n-roll or a hole-in-the-wall, too

 

Through a crowded room we shared a drink or two

Yeah, we had a good laugh

I could tell that I liked you

And when the night shut down

I said so long, man

I hope to see you around

 

Old friend of mine

Old friend of mine

How I hope to see you on down the line

If you’re passing by

Man, I hope you come say hello sometime

 

It’s you, and all the people I meet

Here and along the way

Oh, they stay in my passenger seat

Maybe a year will pass

Before I see you again

But if you’re nearby come see me

 

Chorus

 

Hey, ‘til the next time comes around

I wish you well

Hey, ‘til the next time comes around

I wish you well

Hey, ‘til the next time comes around

I wish you well

 

Hey….

Before I Get There

 

How long now have I been here?

And how long will I stay?

Got a little more work to do

Before I’m on my way

Tying all of my loose ends

Still got debt to pay

Picking up the pieces

Before I’m on my way

Before I’m on my way

Before I’m on my way

 

Before I get there

Before I show up

Before I’m somewhere

Before I grow up

I’ll be here taking in right now ‘til I’m ready to go

When my time comes along to move on then I’ll already know

I’ll be ready to go

 

All the coming and going

I see it everyday

But I got a little more work to do

Before I’m on my way

While I’m still here in the place I lay

I’ll be soaking up the moments

Before I’m on my way

 

Chorus

 

I do believe that the measure of a man

Is the length he will go from the place he began

And I remind myself as I walk across the land

That the less I overstep means the more I understand

 

Chorus

 

`````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````

 

Good Company

 

I’ll stay for a moment

Or hang for a while

You tell me what you want to

Stay here or walk for miles

 

I could be hard or I could be weak

I could be anything you need

Yes, I will always be good company

I could be off or I could be on

I could be anything you want

Yes, I will always be

Yes, I will always be good company

 

I’ve heard jokes

And secrets, too

And I’ve made promises to folks

And I’ve followed my words through

 

Chorus

 

I could be right or I could be wrong

You could turn back or come along

What lies ahead I cannot guarantee

We could be last or we could be first

We could move on or in reverse

But either way I’ll be your company

But either way I’ll be your company

 

Chorus
