Track Name: Missed Opportunity
Missed Opportunity

I saw Jesus hitchhikin’ on the side of the road
Holdin’ a sign that asked, goin’ up
I paused for a moment, then slammed on the brakes
But in an instant, he was gone

Gone like the wind, Gone like a dream
Missed Opportunity, again
Gone like a wish, Gone in a flash
Missed Opportunity, again

I remember growin’ up a little too stubborn and proud
Never askin’ anyone, for any help
Always seekin’ the truth but walkin’ right passed the answers
Nothin’ to blame but youth, and now that’s gone

Gone like the wind, Gone like a dream
Missed Opportunity, again
Gone like a wish, Gone in a flash
Missed Opportunity, again

Maybe someday my luck will change
And opportunity will knock

But I’ll be Gone, Gone like the wind
Missed opportunity, again
Gone like a wish, Gone in a flash
Missed Opportunity, again

I saw Jesus hitchhikin’ on the side of the road
Holdin’ a sign that asked, goin’ up

Track Name: Shaky Ground
Shaky Ground

Standin’ on Shaky Ground, kickin’ rocks, off a cliff
Wind in her face, she don’t feel a thing
Starin’ up at the stars, in a cold black sky
Lookin’ for answers, but she never asks why

Her mama, can’t sleep at night
Her daddy, drinks all the time

Standin’ on Shaky Ground
Reachin’ for the stars, tryin’ to pull heaven down
A balancing act between lost and found
Ain’t afraid of lookin’ down
Standin’ on Shaky Ground

She used to be a dreamer, not afraid to risk it all
Born runnin’ wild, no time to learn to crawl
Years fly by and time weighs heavy on her soul
Chasin’ dead end dreams, has taken its toll

Her mama, can’t sleep at night
Her daddy, drinks all the time

Standin’ on Shaky Ground
Reachin’ for the stars, tryin’ to pull heaven down
A balancing act between lost and found
Ain’t afraid of lookin’ down
Standin’ on Shaky Ground

Her mama, can’t sleep at night
Her daddy, drinks all the time

Standin’ on Shaky Ground
Reachin’ for the stars, tryin’ to pull heaven down
A balancing act between lost and found
Ain’t afraid of lookin’ down
Standin’ on Shaky Ground

Track Name: Time Is All I Have
Time Is All I Have

Sittin’ at a bus stop in Nashville, Tennessee
A homeless man walked up, sat down next to me
He said son, I’m not askin’ for a dime
I’m just lookin’ for someone, with whom to spend some time

Time Is All I Have, I’d be glad to share some with you
Every mornin’ I wake up, I’ve got another day to spend
The more I give, the more I’ve got, it goes on to no end
Time Is All I Have, I’d be glad to share some with you

A couple years, maybe more, from the day I met that man
His words echo in my head, live them the best I can
He said son, it’s not what’s yours or what’s mine
No matter how much money you make, you can’t buy time

Time Is All I Have, I’d be glad to share some with you
Every mornin’ I wake up, I’ve got another day to spend
The more I give, the more I’ve got, it goes on to no end
Time Is All I Have, I’d be glad to share some with you

He said look, there goes another time starved man, rushin’ by, to get to work
I wonder if he knows, what it is that he’s chasin’

Time Is All I Have, I’d be glad to share some with you
Every mornin’ I wake up, I’ve got another day to spend
The more I give, the more I’ve got, it goes on to no end
Time Is All I Have, I’d be glad to share some with you

Track Name: A Better Man
A Better Man

As I grow older, I should be gettin’ wiser
But it seems I forget more every day
Am I learnin’ anything at all, or is it just the alcohol
Does it matter either way

Sometimes you gotta let it go
Move on the best you can
Pick up the pieces, take time to mend
And learn to be, A Better Man

Bein’ right ain’t all it’s cracked up to be
I’ve seen right and lonely walk hand in hand
Foolish pride can drown your common sense, leave you washed up with only your regrets
Like bein’ face down in the sand

Sometimes you gotta let it go
Move on the best you can
Pick up the pieces, take time to mend
And learn to be, A Better Man

Sometimes you gotta let it go
Move on the best you can
Pick up the pieces, take time to mend
And learn to be, A Better Man
