Track Name: Young Boy
Young boy
Done with all of your toys
Off to enjoy the good life
Take it slow
Far as you go
Always should know where you are

But if you can't dance to the rhythm
That they live in
You better come home boy

Young boy
Headed for the coast
Don't forget the things that mean the most to you
It's so nice
Living out your life
Next to those who love to live it too

But if you can't dance to the rhythm
That they live in
You better come home boy
You better come home
Track Name: For You
Do you remember all the ways we'd run around?
Didn't care, we just loved to feel the ground
I can feel the way my heart is beating now
For you, I always want to be right here next to you

One of these days I will finally figure out
What it takes for a man to settle down
To be the one that always comes around
For you, I always want to be right here next you

I can feel the way my heart is beating now
For you, I always want to be right here next to you
Track Name: Miles
Miles and miles from the eastern shore
Where the leaves never fall
And the sun always touches the floor
She is already there
Waiting on my arrival
And I'll be leaving when the moment is right
I'll pack all my bags
And I'll run and I'll run through the night
I'll send you a card
To fill you in on my travels

All my life I've been waiting
Singing the same old song
Since the day I opened my eyes

And I've been watching how the people move
They shake around like their faces are turning blue
I've got these old shoes
They haven't done too much dancing
But I think I'm ready to go do it myself
I could put them away
Or give them to somebody else
When it's my time
I'm going to miss you

All my life I've been waiting
Singing the same old song
Since the day I opened my eyes
Track Name: Before It Gets Cold
Leaves are falling and I feel I'm getting restless again
Your lips are calling for the taste of something sweet
I could be your refreshment
Just tell me when and I'll let you in

Winter is near and I could use another friend
Before it gets cold

As the days grow dark I move my feet
To the place where your warm smile welcomes me
and oh, what a sight for these sore eyes
Just tell me when and I'll let you in

Winter is near and I could use my heart again
Before it gets cold
Track Name: When Your Dreams Run Down the Drain
There will be a rose waiting
By your mothers door back home
When your dreams run down the drain
When you're feeling like you're tired
And you're lost again
Lost again

Sometimes feelings change, don't they?
You're trying hard to be the man you've made
But the thrills don't feel the same
You just want to go back home and start again
Start again

And there it goes
The thing you were counting on to lead you slips away
Well, sometimes life can work in strange ways
And really it's just trying to say you can let it go
Something good must die sometimes for us to grow
So don't be afraid
Don't be afraid

There will always be another way to go
And there's something to be said about the growth
That can only come
When your dreams run down the drain
Track Name: Being Grown
When the day begins
And the sun is burning
You can lay with me and close your eyes
We'll forget about all the things we're learning
And try to think of a better time
When we were young

If the ground should move
I will pull you closer
And sing to you a silver line
When the words begin
To relieve your worries
We'll sleep away the summertime
Falling in love

When the colors change
We will stay in our slumber
And pay no mind to the other ones
As they embark
On an age old journey
To understand the difference in
Being grown

We will find our own way
Of being grown
