Track Name: So Long Suzy
My name is Johnny French
I got a job working hard for the city
I run a dozer and a blade just south of town gettin dirty and gritty
Got me a lady named Suzy you know she's my only one
but here lately shes been restless and crazy as tough as they come.

I said baby whats the problem
what did I do wrong
She said "boy you know exactly whats been going on."

She wants a ring on her finger a diamond on her hand a symbol of commitment from and uncommitted man.
If she dont get it she's walking away
I said "so long Suzy, hate to end it that way."

The next day at work I told the boys about my troubled past
Told them Suzy was gonna leave me If I dont marry her fast
They said Johnny dont be a fool dont get caught up in that trap
If that woman decides to leave you, you know she'll be coming back

I just stood there nodding shaking my head cuz I know just what that little girl has gotta have.

She wants a ring on her finger a diamond on her hand a symbol of commitment from and uncommitted man.
If she dont get it she's walking away
I said "so long Suzy, hate to end it that way."

I know what I've gotta do
I know what I've gotta say

That night when I got home I looked her in the eyes
said baby I'm sorry I was outta my mind
I aint a perfect man but I try to walk that line.

She said boy dont be a fool you know what I need
I aint gonna quit until youre down on one knee.

She wants a ring on her finger a diamond on her hand a symbol of commitment from and uncommitted man.
If she dont get it she's walking away
I said "so long Suzy, hate to end it that way."
Track Name: The Younger Me
I been sitting down here pondering my life and looking back
At the foolishness of youth and all the fun I had
I cant help but wonder if them days are gone for good
I'd like to think that they ain't over
time wasted just aint no good

All the things I wish I'd dont you know I finally made amends
If I could turn back time I'd do them all again

Except I would have kissed you on the lips that night under the moon shining bright
Said to hell with all my worries, tried to take love for a ride
Sold all of my belongings, backpacked across the USA
I want to be that train laying down my own tracks.
I want the younger me back

I've got a good friend who settled down
Got a wife and kids of his own.
Somethimes we get to talking about life and how it unfolds
A couple of beers later he's reminiscing about days gone by and all the things he wished he would have done that passed in the blink of an eye.
Through the trials and tribulations he says I'm still a happy man
Theres just a couple of things that I'd like to do again.

I want to drive out to Colorado cross the Wyoming plains
Jet set across the pacific see the rising sun of Japan
Set sail out to an island and call it by my own name
I want to be that train layin down my own tracks.
I want the younger me back

Through all the ups and downs and all the rights and wrongs
theres just a couple of things that I wish I'd done.

I want to chase all my dreams down
never let them get away.
Do all the thing I talked about but put off for another day
I want to fuel my fire with love and happiness
I want to be that train layin down my own tracks.
I want the younger me back.
Track Name: Angel of Greatness
Dry your eyes baby you know I'm going out again.
My finger in the air my dream blowin on the wind.
I'm packing up and leavin gotta try to chase it down again.
I dont know where I'm going but I sure as hell ain't stayin in.

So say a prayer for me
Think about what might have been
If we were lovers undercover dreaming of happiness.

Take my hand honey I'll be your loving man tonight.
Feeling so good we're dancing in the moonlight.
Love me while I'm here baby tomorrow I'll be gone.
but I promise you I'll bring that dream on home.

So say a prayer for me
Think about what might have been
If we were lovers undercover dreaming of happiness.

I'm on my way down

I need you angel of greatness to shine down on me
I need your angel of greatness to shine on.
Track Name: Miles and Miles
I want to be right where you are
I want to see all that you saw
I want to hold you close in the darkness before dawn

They say true love it will never fade
Warm you in the sun, cool you in the shade
Were two rambling souls that collided along the way.

We travel miles and miles
to the rising sun
We travel miles and miles
but its towards home we run.

The busted legs of this tired town
They pick us up, they wore us down.
We spend most our time trying to get out

When I was young I wanted to get away
Now I'm old you know I want to stay.
and time moves faster everyday

We travel miles and miles
to the rising sun
We travel miles and miles
but its towards home we run.

If I said you were the one that got away
Would you love me or leave me to blame
Until I broke upon the rocks on the crest of a wave.

We travel miles and miles
to the rising sun
We travel miles and miles
but its towards home we run.

We run
Track Name: You Ain't Seen The Best of Me
Grew up slow in a small town under my mothers watchful eye
Played a little bit of football got some glory on a Friday night
I could run that pigskin faster than you ever seen
That was just a small piece
You ain't seen the best of me

Never been to them bright lights of New York or LA
Spend my nights under moonlight fishing on the lake.
I can tell you all the sweet spots where you can go wet a line.
Maybe light a bonfire on the beach
but you aint seen the best of me

You aint seen all the way that I could love you
Hold you close and give you everything you need
You aint felt the weight of my devotion.
No You aint seen the best of me

Never wanted much of anyone
Always wanted to be myself
She was like a ray of sunshine come burning through my cloudy shell.
She taught me how to stay satisfied and be a better man
but she aint seen the best of me.

She aint seen all the ways the I could love her
Hold her close and give her everything she needs
She aint felt the weight of my devotion
She aint seen the best of me.

When I'm old and looking back
On a life I cant believe
Oh darling, you still aint seen the best of
Aint see the best of me.
Track Name: Runaway
She was a rebel and a runner and a fighter
I tried so hard to pin her down
She was the fuel that was burning my fire
and the fire that burned me to the ground.
Sometime I here her calling my name in the dark though I know that no one is around.
Cold sweat drippin off of my head and I'm shaking off the demons and the sound.

Singin "Oh my my, ain't no lie that all you ever was was a runaway and all you ever was, was a runaway."

The past was like a promise that I never could keep and the days were shorter than the nights. I fear the world is fallin on me and theres a war going on in my mind. I turn around and the headlights slam, she was gone forever nowhere to be found, I was bruised and broken lying on the floor crying out to god I can't take no more.

Singin "Oh my my, ain't no lie that all you ever was was a runaway and all you ever was, was a runaway.

Ain't no one here to share the load
Now I'm reaping all I've sewed
God bless all that sacrificed
I'll see you on the other side.

We'll be singing
"Oh my my ain't no lie that all you ever was was a runaway and all you ever was was a runaway."
Track Name: Eyes On You
Roll the windows down honey let the night in, were leaving all our busted dreams behind. I know what all the old folks will be saying but they dont understand a love like yours and mine
We drive all night in the pouring rain your hand in mine eases the worrying I knew you were the one for me first time I laid eyes on you.

Traffics jammed on the interstate at midnight for two young lovers trying to break free we point our headlights south and start a new life leaving behind this town thats brought us to our knees

and we drive all night in the pouring rain your hand in mine eases the worrying I knew you were the one for me first time I laid eyes on you

So tell me baby where you want to run away to and thats the way we'll go. I'll follow you up or down through heaven and hell and then I'll turn around and you know I'd bring you home
because I knew
first time I laid eyes on you
When all is said and done there aint nothing in this world except for you and me I know I ain't all that you ever wanted but I swear I'll be all that you'll ever need.
