Track Name: Bloodshot
Chorus:
Bloodshot
After what you did to me
One shot
is not all that I'm gonna need
But I'm not
Gonna get the drinks for free

It took a distance to make it happen
Broke me from 5,000 miles away
Next time I saw you, things were different
And it's more than I'm talking about
After what you said, I need a

Chorus

Nobody likes a broke-hearted tourist
And these old streets can tell no lies
Next time I won't be asking questions
And all we were talking about
Was what you were doing to me

Chorus
Track Name: Make You Love
Honey I'm up late again
I'm sitting here drinking without a friend
I'm thinking about what you said
And the way that I read those signs

The tv's on but the volume's off
A car rolls by another bottle drops
I'll swallow my words but
I'm never gonna learn my lesson tonight

Chorus:

And a heart is hard to hold
When it's beating hot and cold
And I can't believe another lie
When he shows and "smoke gets in your eye"
It's the hardest thing I'll ever do
'Cuz it's all I ever dream of
But I can't seem, can't seem to make you love

Honey I'm here, all alone
I'm thinking about you and I wanna phone
But you're drinking with the band
And you'll never understand why I can't turn off my light

My mind is stuck but it can't slow down
I'd give it all up and I would blow this town
But I know I'm gonna stay
'Cuz you know I'd miss the way you looked at me tonight

Chorus
Track Name: Brazen Bets
Do you feel it? A kind of burning
A kind of passion...I'm kinda spurning
And all the times I try to find the easy way out

Can you hear it? Then start believing
I'm not impressed with the hand you're dealing
Now it's time to take what's left and walk away

Chorus:
Brazen bets were placed and
No one loves consequences
There's no turning back once you've paid out

It burns my heart it breaks my soul
But I'm all in, all alone
Nothing to do, nowhere to go
When I'm all in, on my own

Can you sense it? A strong reaction
And my response to a call of action
Gotta take a chance before it slips away

Well can you see it? No double vision
But there's a way out, out of this prison
Now strike a chord and hear the freedom ring
Track Name: Judy is a Slut
Standing on the front porch
Dolled up and ready to go
But I can't handle another show
She's flirting with the door man
I'm amp'd up and ready to play
But I can't take this another day

I'm singing out a love song
She's dancing in front of the stage
Then Judy's got her hand in another man's jeans
I'm ordering a beer when
I overhear somebody say
Judy's giving head in the touring band's van

Chorus:

But all I ever wanted
Was you to fall in love with
No one else but me
But all you ever gave me
Was a broken heart and an STD
It's time for me to say...go away

So fuck you, Judy
I will never love you again

Standing on the back porch
Packed up and ready to leave
Why is she always begging me to stay?
She's pulling out the pin
I'm pissed off and I'm ready to blow
But I let everybody know

Chorus
Track Name: All Night
I walk out tonight, say
"This is it: it's now or never" yeah
'Cause this sure ain't no way to live...
...but I know I'll do it again

An angel on my left
And a devil to my right
The one that seems good
Is the one that ain't right
I'll walk you home
If you say it's alright
All I wanna know is if
You'll hold my hand tonight

I walked home this morning
And I knew- you're sleeping in with him
That thorn of information
Twists in my side again

An angel on my left
And a devil to my right
The one that seems good
Is the one that ain't right
I'm waiting at the bar
I'll be waiting all night
All I wanna know is if
You'll hold my hand tonight

Said you wanna give it up
But you don't wanna give it up
When I look at you
I want to lose control

An angel on my left
And a devil to my right
The one that seems good
Is the one that ain't right
He's with you in the morning
But I'm here with you tonight
All I wanna know is if
You'll hold my hand...

An angel on my left
And a devil to my right
The one that seems good
Is the one that ain't right
I'll feel this way
'Til the day I die
All I wanna know is if
You'll hold my hand tonight
