Track 1

Southbound Out of Town

Verse

Bundle up your memories,

Toss them in the car and escape with me

These cold nights and short days are not what we need

Stepped outside I could see my breath

Though the last leaves haven’t fallen yet

Don’t even want to think of what’s coming next

I’ve got a breakout get away plan we can run tonight

Chorus   

So I’ll get the motor running, this day has been a long coming

The California sun would look so good on you

Heaven knows where the road will take us, we won’t stop, not even in Vegas

Not until we have an ocean view. Say you’ll come with me

Southbound Out of Town, never come back around

Let’s go Sounthbound Out of Town, and never come back around.

 

Verse

Crank our favourite summer tunes

We’ll hit the border town by noon

Take one look back then gun it through

Sure we’ll fly by the seat of our pants

Honey ain’t life about taking a chance

The only thing I know is that we’ll never come back

I’ve got a breakout plan and the time is tonight

Chorus   

 

Bridge

We’ll steal away like bandits on a hope and a prayer

A few tanks of gas and honey we’re there

Chorus

Track 4

Someday

Verse

On a table by her bed she kept travel magazines

Dog eared at the pages, places she’d never been

She always said she’d get there, thought her favourite would be LA 

Someday

In her kitchen was a jar filled with end of day loose change

She’d saved more than enough to get on that westbound plane

She would laugh and say that, life just gets in the way

But Someday

 

Chorus

We all have chances we never take

And roads we never drive

Dreams that we tuck away

Mountains we never climb

Make promises to ourselves that we let come undone

Even though we know Someday

Someday sometimes never comes

Verse

She kept her faith in Jesus, was a mother round the clock

Made countless lunch and dinners, always was the family rock

She volunteered her daytime but at night she’d drift away

To Someday

Chorus

Bridge

Oh Someday, yeah Someday

Someday sometimes never comes

Verse

I went out to the West Coast, looked out over the sea

Waited for the moment to let her soul fly free

And as the sun touched down on a distant rolling wave

I looked up to Heaven

And I said momma, this is your Someday

Track 5

Naturally

Verse

There’s a Friday, I’ve got marked on the calendar

A full Harvest moon, comes along with that

I’ll pick you up at five, head out on a country drive

To a little place, off the beaten track

Chorus

Where we will shut it down, turn it off

And turn on this love we’ve got

Leave the whole Wi-Fi world behind

Don’t need to send or receive a text

I’ve got a better way that we’ll connect

And this time it’s naturally, oh this time it’s naturally

Verse

We’ll build a fire, have a little bit of wine

Wrap ourselves, in a blanket of stars

And we will take the night, where ever we like

‘Cause nobody will, know where we are

Chorus

Bridge

We’ll get caught up on what we’ve been missing

I think there might be a little skinny dipping

I know for sure they’ll be lots of kissing

And we won’t need a gps to find our way around

Chorus

Track 6

The Leaving

 

Verse

On a cool sunny Tuesday                 

She caught a flight on a south plane                    

Headed off to the Carolina coast               

A change of scenery would sure help

Heal the pain that her heart felt

An ocean breeze is always good for the soul

She hadn’t broken a vow, up until right now

She couldn’t stay till death do them part

 

Chorus

But she said what really hurts

Is while she was trying to make it work

Time slipped away with her youth and dreams

And that’s what feels the worst.

There were nights she laid awake barely breathing

Crying and just staring at the ceiling

Thinking about The Leaving

Oh The Leaving

 

Verse

They dug in on either side

Of a gap that grew a canyon wide

In a big old house that always felt so cold

Oh she knew that love shouldn’t be that tough

And she was past the point of had enough

Chorus

Bridge

When she left she locked the door

Slipped the key under the mat

Along with her wedding ring

She wouldn’t be needing that, she wasn’t coming back

 

Chorus

Track 7

Throw Away the Key

 

Verse

Like a fugitive running from the law

Kept my heart two steps ahead of getting caught

Sooner or later good love always wins

So I’m here to turn myself in

Chorus

Cause I’m guilty of Love in the First Degree

I think you should throw the book at me

I’m not asking for your leniency

I think it’s only right, that you would give me life

You’re just what I need

You can throw away the key

Verse

My tumbleweed ways have rolled into dust

Want to put down roots and think in terms of us

Didn’t see this coming, but I love the way it feels

Don’t need a plea bargain deal

Chorus

Bridge

I’ve been running for so long, long as I can remember

All I needed all along, was to give-in to this sweet surrender

Chorus

Track 8

Take the Long Scenic Way Around

 

Verse

He kept crumpled maps with hand drawn routes

Brochures with palm’s and swimming pools

Postcards that were never sent

From every place I think we ever went

Those summer drives, were the best of times

Chorus

When he would roll us down the highway between neon signed motels

Stopped at every scenic lookout point

We would count the water towers and punch buggies that went by

We only ate in little roadside joints

He would say if you want to feel the heartbeat of this Country

You Take the Long Scenic Way Around

Yeah you Take the Long Scenic Way Around, and stay in small towns

Verse

Oh those western skies with Texaco stars

And cruising with our feet sticking out of the car

He sure loved that old Ford

Bucket seats, hard top, four doors

And those windy roads, we loved them the most

Chorus

 

Bridge

He sure enjoyed those family road trips

Love of his life by his side, back seat filled with his kids

Windows rolled down and radio on

He’d crank it up a little bit, when they played our favourite songs

Chorus

Track 9

Can't Get Over You

 

Verse

Can't even listen to late night music

Reminisce about our days, I lose it

Every song I hear reminds me of you

There’s no point in trying to find a place that

I can’t remember you and I ever being at

Everywhere I go, you’re still in my view

I can’t get over you

 

Chorus

I can’t get over you saying goodbye

I can’t get over watching your fading taillights

I can’t get over knowing things aren’t like they use to be

I can’t get over you, getting over me

 

Verse 

I use to think you were sent from above

With a heaven made soul mate kind of love

I always thought we’d last till the end of time

I’ve tried drinking and I’ve done some praying

Neither one is working, I’m just saying

Don’t know what it will take

To make things fine

I can’t get over you

 

Chorus

 

Bridge

You were my everything

The air that I breathe

You were my moon and stars

I never thought you’d leave

 

Chorus

Track 10

H.W.R.

 

Chorus

If I should die tonight, I hope you will remember me

I’m carving my initials, in this forest on this tree

So if the good Lord decides this is the last place on Earth I see

H.W.R. that’s me

 

Verse 

I came in the name of freedom, for the love of my Country

Came to keep evil from ever taking these shores

Standing with our Dutch Brothers in Arms

Together we fight, we’ll win this war

 

Chorus

But if I should die tonight, I want you to remember me

I’m carving my initials, in this forest on this tree

So if the good Lord decides this is the last place on Earth I see

H.W.R. that’s me

 

Verse

Been hunkered down in these trenches, in this northern town of Eelde 

The winter was hell, always chilled to the bone

Sure is nice to feel this April sun

And know in a fewr days I’ll be going home

  

Bridge

Going home, oh how I miss my family

Going home, hope my mother will be proud of me

 

Chorus

But if I should die tonight, I want you to remember me

I’m carving my initials, in this forest on this tree

So if the good Lord decides this is the last place on Earth I see

H.W.R. that’s me

Private Harold Wilbert Roszel, that’s me
