Track Name: Porcupine Personality
Met you when we were ten, didn’t like you much back then.
Acting like you’re better than the rest of us.
Got worse when we were 14, breakin’ in that high school scene,
Strutting round like you’re the queen of the world.

Sometimes you made me sick, walking round with your popular click
Getting joy making the other girls cry.
Dated some guy named Rick, no surprise he was a dick.
Spent his time pushing smaller boys around.

You got a porcupines personality, always seemed like a bitch to me.
Acting like your shit don’t stink.
Swelled head bad attitude, all the things you say seem to be rude.
Why would people care what you think? I don’t know…

Staring down from your pedestal, smiling smug cause your ego’s full.
Don’t you know you’re just set up to fall.
High schools just a 1000 days, life’s more than that awkward phase,
And the seeds you sow grow down the road.

You got a porcupines personality, always seemed like a bitch to me.
Acting like your shit don’t stink.
Swelled head bad attitude, all the things you say seem to be rude.
Why would people care what you think? I don’t know…

20 years down the road
I saw you walking down the street.
Must’ve gained bout 4 pounds a year
Cause you’re walking heavy in your shoes
Morbid curiosity led me to stop and say hello…
Twice divorced and your kids a thug
And I couldn’t hold back the joke.

You got a porcupines personality, always seemed like a bitch to me.
Acting like your shit don’t stink.
Swelled head bad attitude, all the things you say seem to be rude.
Why would people care what you think?
You got a porcupines personality, always seemed like a bitch to me.
Acting like your shit don’t stink.
Swelled head bad attitude, all the things you say seem to be rude.
Why would people care what you think? I don’t know…
Track Name: Henrilee
Henrilee

Henrilee, what did you do to me?
Drive me crazy, yet still I long for you.
Hernrilee, you tore my heart to pieces.
Still I am under your spell.

You know I’ve been tempted. Tempted to stray.
But I can’t risk losing you, oh Hernrilee

Henrilee, I heard you say you love me.
But you treat me just like some old work shoes.
Henrilee, you say that I complete you.
Then why you have to take so much from me.

They say that opposites attract.
I think you just cancel me out.
All I want is to love you.
But all we seem to do is scream and shout

You know I’ve been tempted. Tempted to stray.
But I can’t risk losing you,
No I can’t risk losing you, oh Henrilee.

La dada dad dada dum. La dada dad dada dum
No I can’t risk losing you
Track Name: Achin' For Love
Achin’ For Love

I’m looking around, at all that I see, is this what my life’s supposed to be?
Is it enough, I have what I need, I’d like a little more if you please.
I’m achin’ for love, I’m searching for faith, I need to feel you hand caress my face.
The ache in my heart has grown so strong, I’ve waited for your touch for far too long.

All of this waiting is driving me crazy, I can’t stand it anymore.
I need your loving, your kissing your clutching, you’re the one that I adore.

You fill up my heart, you complete my soul, it’s your love that makes me whole.
But I need to be wrapped in your arms, I need to feel your love from inside.
I’m achin’ for love, I’m crying for faith, won’t you fill me up with your grace.
The ache in my heart has grown so strong, I’ve waited for your touch for far too long.

All of this waiting is driving me crazy, I can’t stand it anymore.
I need your loving, your kissing your clutching, you’re the one that I adore.

I’m feeling run down, I’m tired and sore, sometimes I just don’t want to do it no more.
I’ve lost so much, felt so much pain, your love makes me feel alive again.
I’m aching for love, I’m losing my faith, I need to feel you hand caress my face.
The ache in my heart has grown so strong, I’ve waited for your touch for far too long.


|: All of this waiting is driving me crazy, I can’t stand it anymore.
I need your loving, your kiss your clutch, you’re the one that I adore. :|
I need your love , I need your love , I need you so much more.
I need your loving, your kissing your clutching, you’re the one that I adore.
Track Name: Sun Gonna Shine
Well the sun gonna shine someday and I hope it comes soon.
Well the sun gonna shine someday and I hope it comes soon.
Since the day I met you my life’s been a state of ruin.

Said that you’d love me and would always be true
Said that you’d love me and would always be true
You took my hard earned money and played me like a fool.

This is not the first time I’ve ever been wrong
But I pray it’s the last time I have to write this song,
Oh I have to write this song…

Thought I was grounded, thought I could see the truth,
But the way that you wronged me honey was so without ruth.

This is not the first time I’ve ever been wrong
But I pray it’s the last time I have to write this song,
Oh I have to write this song…

Well the sun gonna shine someday and I hope it comes soon.
Well the sun gonna shine someday and I hope it comes soon.
Since the day I met you my life’s been a state of ruin.

This is not the first time I’ve ever been wrong
But I pray it’s the last time I have to write this song,
Oh I have to write this song…
Track Name: Smoke Break
Smoke Break

Oh girl we need something to make us scream and shout
And you know girl that something, that something is what it's all about

I can't find a way to make this any better
And you can't find a way to make me feel any worse

Oh boy we need something to make us scream and shout
And you know boy that something, that something is what it's all about

I can't find a way to make this any better
And you can't find a way to make me feel any worse
Track Name: Take From Me
Take From Me

When I was a young child, I was a foolish little girl.
I thought the whole world was full of love.
But I grew older and I felt so much strain,
And I learned I was wrong

Daddy didn’t love me like he should,
He did not protect my heart and baby that’s no good.
Mommy didn’t love me like I needed her to,
There was always something in the way.
And to make matters worse, my family done me wrong,
They made me feel like I don’t belong.

If you gonna fill your heart with love, love, love, love
You never get back all that you give.
But you better fill your heart with love, love, love, love
Cause it’s the only way to live
And you can feel it, feel it, feel it all around you
But it’s gotta start from within.

Some people take from me, and break from me
And steal from my heart, then disappear in the crowd
Well I can only give what I have to give, so take what you need,
Baby please don’t take all that you can.
And you can bring me down, bring me down to my knees,
But I will always stand my ground.

If you gonna fill your heart with love, love, love, love
You never get back all that you give.
But you better fill your heart with love, love, love, love
Cause it’s the only way to live
And you can feel it, feel it, feel it all around you
But it’s gotta start from within.
If you gonna fill your heart with love, love, love, love
Shine that light all around
If you gonna fill your heart, fill your heart, oh fill your heart
It’s better to give than receive
If you gonna fill your heart with love, love, love, love
Be sure to spread it all around
Yes I’m gonna fill my heart with love, love, love, love
Cause it’s the only way I’ve found
Track Name: Fools Gold
Fools Gold

They say that life’s just a dusty road full of snakes and vipers,
But also gold that’s tucked away just out of sight.
Some gold was made for jewels, while other gold was made for fools,
And a fool of me you did make.

I can’t count how many times you lied to my face,
I don’t know how many times I cried or why I stayed

It’s getting harder every day. There’s no way that I can stay.
It’s getting harder every day. It’s time to say goodbye to you

You pulled the wool into my eye, thread by thread of woven lies,
And I stood idly by and watched.
Somewhere I’d lost my pride, I stood like a fool right by your side,
All the while you loved someone else.

I can’t count how many times you lied to my face,
I don’t know how many times I cried or why I stayed

It’s getting harder every day. There’s no way that I can stay.
It’s getting harder every day. It’s time to say goodbye to you

Oh so many dreams along the way,
Were lost as the years slipped away.
And I gave all my love to you…

I can’t count how many times you lied to my face,
I don’t know how many times I cried or why I stayed

It’s getting harder every day. There’s no way that I can stay.
It’s getting harder every day. It’s time to say goodbye to you
Track Name: Two Devils
Two Devils

Two Devils crossed my path and it surely blew my mind.
Not quite the type of thing I was expecting to find.
One devil she had eyes of green and she whispered in my ear,
“Don’t be afraid little boy, you’ve got nothing to fear.”
The other devil well she was of a different sort,
Gave me this information, to me she did report.

If you want to be a martyr you’re gonna need to lose it all.
And if you want to climb to heaven you gotta be willing to…
Fall…..Willing to fall….Willing to fall…Willing to Fall.


Two Devils crossed my path with a dark and evil goal.
Clawed hands piercing, tearing at my soul.
Fed me my poisons and they did intoxicate.
One said, ‘Don’t look now but the hour’s late.”
Two devils crossed my path and pulled me from the light.
Last words did echo as I fell into the night.


If you want to be a martyr you’re gonna need to lose it all.
And if you want to climb to heaven you gotta be willing to…
Fall…..Willing to fall….Willing to fall…Willing to Fall.
Track Name: Just Another Day
Just Another Day

I wake up in the darkness with a heavy heart
Put on my walking face, and get in the car.
And sometimes it’s hard, to keep it all inside
But I know this too shall pass

It feels like an emptiness that tears at my heart
People loved so dearly just had to depart
It’s no fault of my own, this love it was for them
Now it’s gone, just taken away.

Oh lord I do my best to do right by you
The blood runs blue in my veins I bleed just like you
You may think I’m weak, but have you walked in my shoes?
Baby that’s why I have to sing the blues,
Sing the blues

I get home in the evening, tired and worn
I sink into my chair, feel like the day it won
But I did my best, and gave my all
And I close my eyes full of love

Oh lord I do my best to do right by you
The blood runs blue in my veins I bleed just like you
You may think I’m weak, but have you walked in my shoes?
Baby that’s why I have to sing the blues
