Track Name: Only You Know How
Meet the new love same as the old love
That’s the way it’s always been
But I knew in an instant, this time it’s different
You had me the moment you walked in

(Chorus)
Only you know how
To turn my heart inside out
Only you know how to find the best in me
So crank me up and love me loud
Till we blow the speakers out
Cause baby there’s no doubt
The love I need right now
Only you, only you know how

I’m not use to little things you do
When you wake me with a kiss
But seeing you in my T-shirt, baby I’m a believer
I could wake up everyday like this

(Chorus)

How to be everything to me
Your everything I need

(Chorus)
Only you know how
Only you know how
Track Name: Just Me Missing You
Hotels and coffee shops
Airports and truck stops
every moment I've got
I'm thinking of you

Big cities small towns
Every time I turn around
I’m only hearing one sound
Baby it’s you

(Chorus)
When it’s late in the evening
And you feel that feeling
When you think you hear me breathing
And want to pull me close to you
It’s just me missing you

Got a folded up photograph
Your smile always makes me laugh
Gonna have to make it last
Till I get home
Till I get you alone

(Chorus)

I miss the way you kiss me when you know I know you own me
I miss the way you whisper baby come and cure the lonely
I miss the way you miss me when you know I got to leave again

When it’s late in the evening
And you feel that feeling
When you think you hear me breathing
And want to pull me close to you
Baby I feel it to
But it’s just me missing you
It’s just me missing you
Track Name: Wild Weekend
Fish ain’t bitin’, but the girls look so invitin’
In their cut off jeans by the camp fire
Gonna bang on guitar, shot gun a PBR
Till we’re buzzin’ like live wires

Steaks are grillin’, beer is chillin’
Nothin’ killin’ this Friday night

(Chorus)
Gonna get wild, gonna get crazy
Gonna light it up again
Lovin’ this life, lovin’ these ladies
The good times never end
What a wild weekend

Wouldn’t you know somebody called the 5-0
Guess we made too much noise
Lucky for us cops love Bocephus
Just a couple of good ol’ boys

We’re still singin’, dancin’ and drinkin’
We ain’t thinkin’ of slowin’ down

(Chorus)

We’re still singing, dancin’ and drinking
No ones thinkin’ of slowin’ down

(Chorus X2)
What a wild, wild weekend
Track Name: My Kind of Paradise
I look left and right, all I see is beach
Baby, let’s get some of that sand underneath our feet
We can’t afford Hawaii or the Keys
Take a look around, we got all we need

(Chorus)
There’s a light breeze blowing our cares away
Listen to the sound of the crashin’ waves
I can get use to this everyday
We’re only three hours down a four lane road
But half a million miles from life back home
The “Best of my Love” playing on the radio
A little romance, a little slow dance with the love of my life
That’s my kind of paradise

Never wanted you more than I do right now
In that little sun dress and your long hair fallin’ down
This is a piece of Heaven that we found
So let’s laugh and love, dance until the tide goes out

(Chorus)

A little romance, a little slow dance with the love of my life
That’s my kind of paradise
You’re my kind of paradise
Track Name: Small Town to Me
This used to be a stop sign town
Look at the all traffic lights now
It’s grown by leaps and bounds, the years I've been away
The cross stands high at the Church of Christ
Now it’s lit by the bingo sign
The winners on Friday night are the sinners on Sunday

(Chorus)
You can tear it down build it back up
Run out the farmers and the pick-up trucks
Black top every winding country road
Turn the five-and-dime into a high-rise
On a main street I barely recognize
But in my eyes it’s always gonna be
A small town to me

We used to swim in Decker’s pond
Land changed hands with the old man gone
He taught me how to fish along the banks of that north shore
I know he’d roll over in his grave
If he knew that his field’s been paved
Just so city folks can save at one more big box store

(Chorus)

This used to be a stop sign town

(Chorus)

Yeah, in my eyes it’s always gonna be
A small town to me
A small town to me
Track Name: As Long as it Takes
It don't always show, but I hope you know
You hold me in the palm of your hands
So please keep the faith in the promise I made
That I'll be your better man

I know sorry is never enough
I know words only mean so much

(Chorus)
As long as it takes
I swear I'll find a way
To make up for all my mistakes, everyday
Everything that I do
I’ll give you love worth falling into
Everyday baby
As long as it takes
As long as it takes me to you

All my regrets, my haven't done yets
Are piling up year after year
I don't put you down, I don't run around
But that don't mean I'm always here

I’m trying to be what you deserve
With your heart as my witness, mark my words

(Chorus)

It don't always show, but I hope you know

(Chorus)
Whatever it takes
As long as it takes me to you
As long as it takes me to you
Track Name: All of Me
I’m goin’ to heaven but I raise hell
I might do wrong but I mean well
I live for NASCAR and NFL
Unless the Vikings lose

I only gamble with a winning bet
I’ve got a good name and no bad debts
I know I ain’t settled down yet
But I just might with you

Need I remind you again
That good ol’ boys grow up to be good men

(Chorus)
That’s me, all of me
What you get is what you see
The only man I know how to be
If you believe in me
I’ll give you anything you need
So take me as I am and I guarantee
You’ll have all of me

I like Sunday mornings and Saturday nights
Dark shades and Marlboro Lights
I might disagree but I don't fight
That's just not my style

I'm long on dreams short on plans
With a new love and a beat up van
But I'll build a life with these two hands
If you can wait a while

I hope I’m good enough for you
Cause there’s no one else I’m trying to turn in to

(Chorus X2)
You’ll have all of me
That’s all of me
Track Name: Where the Girls Are
Friday night with a warm Bud Light and reruns of Entourage
Tired of being bored so I fired up the Ford and I got the hell out of dodge
Picked up the boys to go make some noise, they knew what I had in mind
Three good buddies looking for honeys, and they ain’t hard to find

(Chorus)
The weekend's here from Cleveland to Cancun
So roll down the window and follow the perfume
To a fancy club or roadside bar
Dressed to the nines in a line out the front door
One glass of wine and they're rockin’ the dance floor
Worth every penny of the cover charge
There’s always a party where the girls are

Every honky-tonk and restaurant plays the girls favorite tunes
They know it’ll blow if the ladies don’t show and there’s nothing but a bunch of dudes
Yeah the girls make the scene in their painted on jeans, letting all the good stuff show
And I’m willing to bet there’s ten Juliet’s for each of us Romeos

(Chorus x2)
There’s always a party where the girls are
There’s always a party where the girls are
Track Name: She's Everywhere I Am
Still hits me when I hear her name, like breakin’ up all over again
Friends ask me where she’s been, haven’t seen us together since when
I hide behind a smile and just pretend I don’t know or care
Deep down in my heart I know right where
I know she’s there

(Chorus I)
She’s the first thought when I wake alone in bed
The only dream I never forget
She’s singin’ through my radio everywhere I go
She’s everywhere I am

I quit drivin’ down memory lane and stoppin’ by our favorite place
Tried to drown the past with cheap whiskey and blind dates
When small talk is about old flames, there’s still a fire inside
But nothing puts her out of my mind
I always find

(Chorus II)
She’s the phone call I hope her voice says “how ya been”?
The empty chair when I’m hangin’ with my friends
She’s the one wish to be back in my arms again
She’s everywhere I am

She’s moved on, she’s long gone
Still I keep hearing our song

(Chorus I)
(Chorus II)
Yeah, she’s everywhere I am
She’s everywhere I am
Everywhere I am
Track Name: Grain of Salt
Showed up late on Friday, snuck out around noon
Made the most of my weekend, but Monday came too soon
I've been burning this candle, both ends every day
I've got a new way to handle what life throws my way

(Chorus I)
I'll take it with a grain of salt
Splash of lime in my alcohol
Just Jose Cuervo and me
Toe tappin’ on my two left feet
Everything’s gonna be just fine
The sun can't always shine
So if a little rain should fall
I'll take it with a grain of salt

Got a call from the boss man, said he's letting me go
So I shipped my farmer's tan down to old Mexico
Still got a mortgage, still got bills I can't pay
But I'm in no hurry, my worries I wash them away

(Chorus II)
I'll take it with a grain of salt
Splash of lime in my alcohol
Sun kissed senoritas and me
A little blanket on a sandy beach
Everything’s gonna be just fine
Down here the sun always shines
But if a little rain should fall
I'll take it with a grain of salt

There’s no cure for the blues like the blue of the ocean
And beautiful girls in bikinis and coconut lotion
Asking me would I like one more tropical potion, uh huh I would

(Chorus II)
And if a little rain should fall
I'll take it with a grain of salt
T-E-Q-U-I-L-A
(Chorus II)
(Chorus I)
Track Name: Small Town to Me (Acoustic)
This used to be a stop sign town
Look at the all traffic lights now
It’s grown by leaps and bounds, the years I've been away
The cross stands high at the Church of Christ
Now it’s lit by the bingo sign
The winners on Friday night are the sinners on Sunday

(Chorus)
You can tear it down build it back up
Run out the farmers and the pick-up trucks
Black top every winding country road
Turn the five-and-dime into a high-rise
On a main street I barely recognize
But in my eyes it’s always gonna be
A small town to me

We used to swim in Decker’s pond
Land changed hands with the old man gone
He taught me how to fish along the banks of that north shore
I know he’d roll over in his grave
If he knew that his field’s been paved
Just so city folks can save at one more big box store

(Chorus)

This used to be a stop sign town

(Chorus)

Yeah, in my eyes it’s always gonna be
A small town to me
A small town to me
