Track Name: Wandering Eye
I've got a bad habit
And I just can't shake it
Every time I try to get her off my mind
Just when I start to settle down
She shakes my scene all over town
And there I go chasing her again

Cats eyes, mesmerize
Ain't no place for a boy to hide
I'm just trying to be satisfied
Why she got to catch my wandering eye

Well she's hotter than a pistol
Brighter than a crystal
Try as I might I just can't look away
Just when I think I'm over her
That kitty cat she begins to purr
And there I go chasing her again
Track Name: A Little Rewind
As the clock keeps ticking
I keep wishing for a little more time in my day
It seems hard to keep up when the hands of time
Keep spinning around that way
If I had more hours I could get done
Everything I want to get done
But that old clock on the wall gets a big kick
Out of seeing me on the run

It's another sleepless night
I've got too much on my mind
Time ain't on my side
Where can I find me a little rewind

Now that the race is on to get it done
I better start working on the fly
Cause if I stall out one more time
Something big gonna pass me by
Time rolls on it don't wait around
For anyone to catch its train
It's a steady forward motion on one way track
If you miss it well you're to blame

It's another sleepless night
I've got too much on my mind
Time ain't on my side
Where can I find me a little rewind

Times seems to fade away
No traces left behind
Box it up for another
And your memory won't die
Track Name: I Was Wrong
Sometimes people you know ain't what you think they are
The clothes they wear look the part
But they only hide the scars
Took a trip down a rabbit hole with the crazy books I'd read
I held on too strongly to the lies, I was mislead

I've been down that road before
I know that it leads
To a place I wish I'd never gone
I was always certain
Believed I was right
I have to admit I was wrong

I've been to many places
Seen a lot along the way
While my mind went on a journey
My heart was led astray
I work hard to get back home to a place I want to be
Free from my confusion
Where I just might find some peace

I held on to a vision that could never come to be
Driving blindly down the street
To a place I wasn't free
If we meet you might ask me
Where is that guy you've known
I'll just smile and tell you, that guy is gone long gone
Track Name: Old Friend
I've been remembering all the times when we were young
Everyday we used to play in the heat of the summer sun
Climbing trees and scraping knees
Until the day turned into night
There's no doubt about it out friendship was tight

Hello my old friend
I know it's been awhile
Since we got together to talk about old times
If we do not find the time to write the stories of tomorrow
We may never get the chance ever again

As the years roll on and on we get caught in a working life
Everyday there's bills to pay
You got your job, your kids, your wife
Back when we were fifteen the hardest choice we had to make
Was whether we should ride our bikes or take a swim down at the lake

Now my memory's faded like that old picture on the wall
Look at us back there with our long hair
Hanging outside the concert hall
We can't find any time to get this crazy life to stop
Before this song is over let's take it from the top
Track Name: Free Kind of Life
I won't need to wake up in the morning
To find myself rushing out the door
Taking my time is the only way that I'll know
In that life that I keep working for

Rolling down this never ending highway
I'm always trying to get to work on time
If I ever really make it, I'll tell you what it's like
To be me in a free kind of life

I won't need to find me a woman
One to take along for a ride
Feeling hungry, always lonely and frustrated
Not for me cause she'll be right by my side

Rolling down this never ending highway
I'm always trying to get to work on time
If I ever really make it, I'll tell you what it's like
To be me in a free kind of life

I won't ever have to quit working
Cause I'll do what I do til I die
I'll reach for a life without boundaries
Until then I'll keep trying to survive
