Track Name: Do You Miss Me?
Do You Miss Me? Will you see me?
Will you love me, for a while?
I've been right here, I've been right here, Ive been right here,
All along

My head is burning, the world is turning
down I'm broken, and I'm blue
and if I cry dear, its just a prayer dear,
to a girl, I never knew

cause when I wake dear, in the morning
and I'm lying there alone
I think of you, I think off you
though I know, whoa! You're gone

ooo ooo ooo

Do You Miss Me? Will you see me?
Will you love me, for a while?
I've been right here, I've been right here, Ive been right here,
All along
Track Name: You Got Me, I Got You
Put 'em up girl, do you wanna see me fight?
Look at all the people here on a Friday night
I wanna get your number, I wanna hatch a plan
I'm gonna keep it together the best I can

Oh you gotta roll with the truth now,
You got me and I got You

Look at all the people, dancing on a Saturday night
You're gonna go home early I'm gonna hitch a ride
Drop me off at my place, You can come inside
We'll piece our stories together on a Saturday night

Oh you gotta roll with the truth now,
You got me and I got You

Some say dancing, well it is a sin
Me i'm just lazy man I wanna stay in
Look at all the people, out on each others dime
We're gonna outlast 'em all on Sunday night

Oh you gotta roll with the truth now,
You got me and I got You
Track Name: Heartbreaks, Heart Attacks
Always something like a country song
Never knew right from wrong
Crossed that line every time.

Never knew better myself
Put you on the highest shelf
Drank it down almost every night

Baby I’ll be good for you
Nothing that I would not do
You have my word, I won’t take it back
First the heartbreaks, then the heart attacks

With another sleepless night
Working on our endless fight
We both turn up black and blue

Meet you at the turn around
Go out and hit the town
Come on home with I love you’s

Baby I’ll be good for you
Nothing that I would not do
You have my word, I won’t take it back
First the heartbreaks, then the heart attacks

It ain’t easy, it ain’t easy
If I’m going down, you’re coming with me
First the heartbreaks, then the heart attacks
First the heartbreaks, then the heart attacks
Track Name: Summer in the Backseat
Pickin’ on the front porch
Grinnin’ with our teeth
I was lookin’ at you to see if
You were lookin’ back at me, mmm.

We hit the backroads and
I knew them well
Oh, spinnin’ in the gravel and
I could always tell that you
Were alright with me

Something in our water
Smoke in the air
It was summer in the backseat
Wind through our hair
We never knew the truth
And we always took the dare
That’s the truth

Flyin’ down the road no radio
We jump outside just to pretend
To dance real slow, mmm

Then head to town
Oh just to see
A wedding dance at the Orchid
So you could really dance with me, mmm.

Something in our water
Smoke in the air
It was summer in the backseat
Wind through our hair
We never knew the truth
And we always took the dare
That’s the truth

Never thought I would ever sing the blues
But that was before I put on those rock and roll shoes, mmm.
Now every time I head back I think of us
Out on that gravel road, we were rock and roll.

Something in our water
Smoke in the air
It was summer in the backseat
Wind through our hair
We never knew the truth
And we always took the dare
That’s the truth
Track Name: Lead Me On
You don’t need lead, lead me on
We don’t need to waste our time on sweet talk
You just need to turn, turn me on
No need to call me up tomorrow
You don’t need to lead, lead me on

Well I see you at the bar we connected eyes three times
I walk right out the door so you can chase me through the night
Your words oh they sound suspicious I can read a lie in your eyes
Lets just make this easy
Don’t talk just come and squeeze me

You don’t need lead, lead me on
We don’t need to waste our time on sweet talk
You just need to turn, turn me on
No need to call me up tomorrow
You don’t need to lead, lead me on

So what do you say we could get out of here
Or walk back inside for a shot or a couple of beers
Swing me round down on the dancefloor
Close down the bar
Make out, stumble home
No point in taking it slow

You don’t need lead, lead me on
We don’t need to waste our time on sweet talk
You just need to turn, turn me on
No need to call me up tomorrow
You don’t need to lead, lead me on
