Track Name: Jessica
Oh Jessica did you know that you’ve been
Runnin’ round with my heart?
And I can’t stand being apart
You know it makes me sad…so sad
How I wish I could be where you are
It’s getting harder trying to hide these unhealed scars
And how I wish I could just get out of this bar
But I can’t…not today
Oh Jessica, why’d you go runnin’ off so soon?
Around late May and early June
Everything seemed fine…so fine
How I wish things could be like they were
Now on my best days, I feel broken and unsure
How I wish I could just get up off this floor
But I can’t…not today
And I still read the letters
I never sent to your old home…everyday
Two words stronger than the I and Love and You
They said please stay…they said please stay
Oh Jessica, I’m comin’ for to carry back my heart
Before you tear it all apart
Just give it back…just give it back
How I wish to go back all those years ago
And I’d cut out my tongue to prevent our hello
I’d like to think I would be better off
But I can’t…not today
Track Name: Unraveling
Unraveling

As it turns out you’re not who I thought you were
You might be the one and now I’ll never be sure
You toyed with my heart like a kitten with string
And it’s too late to stop this unraveling
I paid my respects to for better or worse
But too much of the latter couldn’t make it work
Now I’m tryin’ to start over with a fresh clean slate
But all these broken pieces are hard to erase
God knows I’m trying to move along
Don’t know why I’m holding on
To all this hope that we’ll work it out
Because you couldn’t have been more clear
That there’s no future here
Twist the knife and let the hope bleed out
Now it’s too late for something
And I’ve only got nothing now
They say time is the healer of wounds
But I cashed in the hourglass to gamble on you
Now I’m placing my bets on a long shot race
And there’s a hell of a chance that I’ll have hell to pay
I know I’ll make it to winter,
But first I gotta get through this fall
Through the fall

God knows I’m trying to move along
Don’t know why I’m holding on
To all this hope that we’ll work it out
Because you couldn’t have been more clear
That there’s no future here
Twist the knife and let the hope bleed out
Now it’s too late for something
And I’ve only got nothing now
Track Name: What You're Doing To Me
What You’re Doing to Me

The bottle is empty
My heart is the same
There’s blood mixed with bourbon
Coursed through my veins
Did you know what you were doing
When you said to me that you know
What you were doin’ to me
We both were runnin’
From a sin-wicked past
The train wreck was comin’
Down unfinished track
I should have known what you were doing
When you said to me that you know
What you were doin’ to me
Oh, to me
Track Name: Wish I Had You Now
Wish I Had You Now

From Houston out to Vegas
I heard you cried the whole damn way
Neon lights and sin led you astray
Broken hearts and banks
Ice cubes melting in your glass
But I remain still frozen to your past
I said I’d be here when the morning comes
My bleeding heart’s been drained and left me numb
Though I know that you won’t come for me
Though I wish I had you now…wish I had you now
So I went back to Richmond
Seeking shelter from the dust
Leave the chains I wore in Texas there to rust
Panes of broken windows
Pointing west through the red clay
But my reflection keeps me facing the other way
I guess I’ll be here when the morning comes
My bleeding heart’s turned gray and left me numb
Though I know that you won’t comfort me
But I wish I had you now…wish I had you now
Wish I had you now
Track Name: Finish The Job
Finish the Job

Left alone drinkin’ in the barroom tonight
Knowing you’re not coming ‘round
The flame from your memory burns too bright to drown
But one more just might put it out
And if there’s a next time
If I make it to daylight
I’ll find a bottle and finish the job
Stumble through the parking lot, too drunk to dream
Look up at the stars in my eyes
Standing in the glow from church steeple light
No answers will come down from high
And if there’s a next time
If I make it to daylight
I’ll find a bottle and finish the job
Left alone drinkin’ in the barroom tonight
Knowing you’re not coming ‘round
The flame from your memory burns too bright to drown
But one more just might put it out
