Track Name: The Night Before
Lord, it keeps holding me down, but I'll break away out of this town
Did you know that we all lost our souls, but there's a way to go

It seems that we have lost our minds, but I'll breathe for the very first time
So I'll hold onto the blood and stone, and dream away the cold

So I'll drink and won't ever think about what will be and things we'll never see
We'll be home when the sun has rose, but the night is young

They lie, cheat and steal from behind our backs
There's nothing to save from these broken tracks
The dreams that we had are not coming back
Now there's nothing left but this broken wreck

We'd sleep all day just to dream of the night before
Until I'm old and grey I know that we'll dream about it more
Track Name: Crosses
She's been talking about those old homes
She's been talking about the rail roads
She's been talking like a thief in the night when she knows nobody's home
She's been talking 'bout these old bars
About the times when we slept in our cars
She's been talking 'bout the moon and the stars and those nights we thought that they were ours

Now I'm falling down to the floor, I light a match just to feel the warmth
I drink a bottle and before I know it I've found myself at your door
So here we are at the start, back to the place where we fell apart
Now I hear you keep a cross near your heart but does it keep you safe in the dark?

You were always so sure that there's always been more

You get what you take from this life that you make, you decide it.
Do you get what you need when you say you believe, and you feel it?
Track Name: All We'll Ever Need
If a working class hero is something to be
It was never truly meant for you and me
So let's celebrate another day on this damp grey patch
Take a drink, take my hand and don't look back

It's always what you want but don't really need
You work your whole life to rest easy
But I can't belive in what I can't see in these lies that I read
When I go I will be free

Do you believe what you can't see or do you feel this is all we'll ever be?

If this is all we'll ever be, I can sleep peacefully
Won't you sing this with me, if tonight is all we've got it's all we'll ever need
Track Name: Bloodshot
With bloodshot eyes we'll stumble home tonight, recounting all of the things we can remember
The lights flash by but we won't look behind because we know nothing this good could last forever

A long ride home we stumble to the door
This time is what we have both been waiting for
A loosened tie as we both intertwine, and we know this night is ours forever more

I close my eyes and I'm drifting away in this black cab but I can't remember the way
I can't stand so take a hold of my wrist, I understand what I'm doing but I can't resist
