Track Name: Red Letter Man - Demo
I came way too far, from miles and miles
Coming back to find what's real and wild
Won't you show me something that I already know

And like a fool I've tried to blur the lines
Every garden tries to fight back the vines
I'm a red letter man, trying to be more than I am
won't you turn and see me

Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Ooh
Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Ooh

When you call me out, like a counterfeit man
You'll see my red-letter heart break in my red-letter hand
But I still remember how it first made me feel
If it can't be taken from you than you know it was never real

Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Ooh
Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Ooh

In that garden, bright, did I forget you?
Tonight, I'm trying to find where I left you
You were gone...

Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Ooh
Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Ooh

Did I forget you tonight
Track Name: Black Lights - Demo
All I see are black lights
Rushing through like headlights
The screaming of the crowd tonight
Pulls me in just to let me go

All I have are bad nights
Wrapping knuckles, taping hands tight
The calm after a fist fight
Is the hollowest sound I know

I was born in the gutter from a mother just seventeen
No father or a brother in a world so hard and mean
I learned to fight before I learned to read
I could throw my hands with a devilish speed
And someday momma, you'll see, I'm going to be somebody

Sonny had a cot in the office of his downtown gym
I swept up, cleaned the locker rooms, and did some work for him
But a champion man needs champion clothes
I stole a few cars to earn a few rolls
I boxed every shadow in the darkness of a midnight mirror

And all I saw were black lights
Rushing through like headlights
The screaming of the crowd tonight
Pulls me in just to let me go

And all I have are bad nights
Wrapping knuckles, taping hands tight
The calm after a fist fight
Is the hollowest sound I know

I was twenty one and zero, top seed in the welterweight class
I was staying out all night, sobering up during morning mass
I was hurling myself at a break-neck speed
Amphetamines and the Apostles' Creed
They ran my picture in the paper with a headline that read

Title bout scheduled on the eve of Independence Day
I came out in a fury, I was hell bent on putting him away
The static rush of a blood-lust crowd
I was fighting to loose, I was fighting too proud
The last thing I remember was dropping my left on down, and spinning around

Staring at those black lights
Cold and lonely as a moonlight
Oh the crowd is going wild tonight
I give them more than they will ever know

And all I have are bad nights
my lungs are breathing smoke and dynamite
Oh my heart is aching and my head ain't right
And that's the feeling that I can't let go

All I see are black lights
Rushing through like headlights
The screaming of the crowd tonight
Pulls me in just to let me go

And all I have are bad nights
Wrapping knuckles, taping hands tight
The calm after a fist fight
Is the hollowest sound I know

It's the hollowest sound I know
Track Name: New York City - Demo
To the queen of the avenue, to every daughter of the dark
For the lost and the lonely kissing strangers in the park
You left your heart in this city
You traced your name with a mascara pen

With your wrecking ball hands and your wrecking ball mind
To every wreck waltzing slow in a place hard to find
Where the drinks are expensive
But the company is always cheap

For every basket case lost in the crowd
Who knew that loneliness could ever be so loud

Where every face is fleeced with the lost and deceased
Won't you sing me to sleep in New York City

You hide your secrets and your sadness in the corners of your mouth
And like a love seat on a sidewalk with its guts busted out,
You're just one more relic lost and forgotten at the bottom of the pile

You run from every shadow and you hide from every lamp
You're a gossip and a liar, You're a hero and a tramp
You're just one more ragged heart that never ever wants to grow old

For every poet, politician, and thief
Who leaves you hanging on by the skin of your teeth

Where every dream will die, and only children ask why
Won't you kiss me goodbye in New York City

You're a story we all hide in
Like a spark inside a diamond
Born out of pressure and heat
Down some dark and dirty street
You're a dream I never had
You're a love I'll never know

Don't the streets look bright across the river tonight
Won't you please hold me tight in New York City

In New York City
Track Name: Dark Dark Winter - Demo
It's a dark dark winter that I fear is coming for me
It's a dark dark winter that I fear is coming for me

It's a dark dark winter that I fear is coming for me
It's a dark dark winter that I fear is coming for me

Empty faces, empty windows
Shattered glass inside a hairpin dream
The way the sunlight hits your bed post
The way your dress remembers every seam

You are the mightiest of wind blows
Driving hard into the pit of man's heart
Taking everything a man knows
And you won't let it go until you've blown it apart

It's a dark dark winter that I fear is coming for me
It's a dark dark winter that I fear is coming for me

It's a dark dark feeling that I feel coming over me
It's a dark dark feeling that I feel coming over me

Bad example, bad decisions
Cross your heart for every working-class kid
Haunted by old ghosts and visions
Who will have to answer for the things that he did

You are the rifle and the front line,
Blood and marrow in your country's flag
The bright flashes of a dark mind
Flesh and memory you never knew you had

It's a dark dark winter that I fear is coming for me
It's a dark dark winter that I fear is coming for me

It's a dark dark heaven that I hear calling to me
It's a dark dark heaven that I hear calling out to me

Hello old crow, how are you so
Jet black against the sky
I hope to know one day and show
You just how black am I

It's a dark dark winter that I fear is coming for me
It's a dark dark winter that I fear is coming for me

It's coming for me
It's coming for me
Track Name: Home - Demo
I saw your picture on a radio dial
You were so young, you were so free and wild
You had a habit of just letting go
A special gravity I'll never know

I was staring out the window on the passenger side
I was dreaming of you dancing with your arms out wide
I've got nothing in my pockets I've got nothing to hide
Now honey I'm gonna love you 'til the day that I die

You kissed me once and now I'll never go
I was just a kid without a thing to show
I was so nervous when you took my hand
The city streets were ringing out like a marching band

I was sick when you met me and you never asked why
Felt like I'd been walking through a storm without a place to dry
You took me in your arms and you never let me go
Now honey I'm going to love you every way that I know

You were the voice and you were the sound
And I was raised in a factory town
And all I wanted was to always be true
To say what I mean and to do what I do

I wish nothing in the world could ever take this away
You know lately I've been learning I ain't got time to wait
So I'll be leaving soon but I'll never be far
Because my heart is where my home is, and home is what you are
Track Name: Into The Night - Demo
I was hiding out, inside your doorway on the day I was born
Trying to keep away from the morning light, oh I was tired and worn
How could I ever know, what kind of mysteries were meant for me
Or what was underneath, the bright lights I tried so hard to see

Forget the music and forget about the words
And leave the singing to the morning birds

Oh let me go, let me go, let me go, let me go into the night
Oh let me go, let me go, let me go, let me go into the night

I was right in line, with where I thought I was supposed to be
These things I thought were mine, turns out they never meant that much to me
Well, every morning bird becomes a vulture for the song he steals
For every joyful word, he'll strip the flesh from someone else's heels

We're all born with a tragic appetite
To crave the comfort of the dawn's first light

Oh Let me go, let me go, let me go, let me go into the night
Oh let me go, let me go, let me go, let me go into the night

I was underneath the covers, restless and run dry
When I was hit and torn asunder, something dark and full of wonder dragged me by my feet into the night

Let me go, let me go, let me go, let me go into the night
Let me go, let me go, let me go, let me go into the night

Let me go, let me go, let me go
Let me go, let me go, let me go
Let me go, let me go, let me go
Into the night

Let me go, let me go, let me go, let me go into the night
Let me go, let me go, let me go, let me go into the night
