Track Name: Late Nights and Lucky Cigarettes
Driving all alone. Late at night it's dark and cold on dirt roads with palm tree dreams. Too many deer and deep pot holes. Singing songs to get me home. Dozing off, so I need another smoke. Then I lit my lucky cigarette.

When I burned that southern cut the scent took me back to the days of fireworks and butterflies in my stomach.
I never felt so fucking high.
It's hard to forget about how each kiss was intoxicating poison.
The cravings just wont go away.
Hell knows they've tried but she wont leave my mind.

One two, not three but four times now I wrote a tune for you. Say:, "You're killing me Smalls," Im not trying to, but it's what I seem to do.
Cuz' I'm tangled up in heart strings not giving up on my feelings.
Let's sit by a fire and light our lucky cigarettes.

I never fell so hard nose over tail until our first kiss at my festival. And we fell asleep out in the rain until the morning. And I saw your eyes, that were brighter than the summer sky and your smile that could stop a war.
Track Name: Everything That's Ever Been is Growth
You should have a smile on your face.
You control your own fate, and you're doing great but you complain when some things don't go your way.
You lose track and suffer set backs that leave you feeling small.
When momma had a baby and it's head popped off it came back stronger than the others, that's what sets me apart.

Everything that's ever been is growth. It's everything I'll ever know.

What are you waiting for?
Just look up. Dont look over. Don't look down.
Keep pace, get your confidence back. I know you've got it in your head some place.
That's all it takes.

We're all dying to live and we're living to die.
Working hard everyday and we're paying the price.
We all wanna believe we can grow into something beautiful.
First we've gotta believe in ourselves.
