"RIO GRANDE" (written by Wil Kondrich, 2012)

Well I tried to make it right,
but all my words and all my deeds
fade in the night.
And all my prayers and all my pleas
fail me tonight.
Cause when the morning comes I know, you’ll be gone.

Well I know I treated you wrong, and I know its the same old song.
I know you’ve heard it a million times.
But when the morning comes I know, you’ll be gone.

I’m sitting here in this old room
with a hundred other people but still alone.
I’m begging you baby girl
to please stay home
But when the morning comes I know you’ll be gone.

Since you went away
the world stopped turning.
Since you went away
I can hardly focus.
And now you’re gone...

I’ve got an old car and a full tank of gas, and I’m begging for one last chance.
We’ll drive all night
to the Rio Grande.
We’re gonna cross that river
and start again.

GASOLINE & CIGARETTES (written by Wil Kondrich, 2012)

Well I walk these streets just looking for a beat to a song heard long ago.
Ain’t no alibis, Ain’t no silly disguise. I’m only flesh and bone.
Baby will you walk with me. Help me chase down this dream. I can’t do it on my own.
I’m looking for something that can’t be found. I know it’s not around.

Gasoline and cigarettes, faded dreams, that’s all that’s left.
This old world takes it all away.
There’s nothing nobody can say.
Gasoline and cigarettes.

I ain’t looking for silver, no diamond rings. I never cared for those kinds of things.
Gold can't fuel the soul like rock and roll. All I need is you tonight.
Sometimes I feel like I was born too late but time won’t wait.
This digital world ain’t got the soul of vinyl clicks and radio.

SEE THE LIGHT (written by Wil Kondrich, 2012)

West coast hottie with a million dollar body comin’ over just to talk to me.
She said that we can dance or we can go upstairs. It was up to me.

She said her name was Ang, she was looking for a man. She wanted to leave.
Took me by the hand, led me to the stairs. And started kissing me.

The way she moved, the way she talked, had to make her mine.
The way she moved, the way she walked, don’t care if its right.
It felt so good, It felt so right. I see the light. I see the light.

Midnight out on 99, no police in sight.
Angie’s by my side, lookin’ for a light.
Heading south, maybe Mexico. Angie’s got some friends.
Couldn’t tell you how this all began and I don’t want it to end.

ROLL IT UP (written by Wil Kondrich, 2012)

Late July, All night boardwalks.
You and I we’d sit and talk.
Not a care in the world.
Life was paved in gold.

Let the waves crash around us. Every day we’d watch the setting sun.
We’d watch our favorite shows. I never felt alone.

Roll it up baby life’s too short.
Take a drink let’s lose control.
Come on baby live without regrets.
We’ll take all that we can get.
Forget about tomorrow. Live for tonight.

Growing up, don’t know what to do.
Wanna run don’t know where too.
Its alright, you tell me as we say goodnight.

Its been a while, good to see you. Still got that smile. Looking good now.
Remember when, I used to be your friend.
