Lost & Found 03:54
LOST AND FOUND VERSE 1 Had you wondered, if I wandered Or lost my way Couldn’t get a sliver of slumber In night or day Nothing black or white, it’s only gray CHORUS I was lost and then you found me Set adrift upon a sea I was lost and then you found me Pulled from an ocean of misery I was lost and then you found me VERSE 2 We could have danced, I think I dawdled I lost my way Tempting fate is a mean feat It’s what they say If we’d only danced when the music played CHORUS VERSE 3 Did you wondered, if I wandered North, south, east or west Couldn’t ask for directions Or which way would be best Won’t you please help me get out of this mess, LAST CHORUS I was lost and then you found me Set adrift upon a sea I was lost and then you found me Pulled from an ocean of misery I was lost and then you found me Message in a bottle on a beach I was lost and then you found me Pulled from the waters and set free I was lost and then you found me Pulled from an ocean of misery I was lost and then you found me Pulled from the waters and then set free I was lost and then you found me

CAN THERE BE MORE VERSE 1 What doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger Makes an hour seem much longer Then the good times move too fast Struggle to make the memories last CHORUS Can there be, can there be, can there be more? Can there be, can there be, can there be more? Can there be, can there be more VERSE 2 Stuck inside the walls close in Tomorrow’s yesterday begins again Remind yourself of great meals tasted Take your mind off another day wasted CHORUS (BRIDGE/SOLO) VERSE 3 Nothing now is quite the same See your love through a widow pane Nothing that we miss as much As the tender feel of another’s touch LAST CHORUS Can there be, can there be, can there be more? Can there be, can there be, can there be more? Can there be, can there be, can there be more? Can there be, can there be, can there be more? Can there be, can there be more

NORTHERN COUNTRY VERSE 1 Great-Great Grandad was a Union soldier wounded once in the Civil War Carried the flags from Appomattox to make the nation whole once more His grandson his name was Hank, he was born a Connecticut Yank Went to Detroit, sold some goods, and fell in love with the Northern Woods CHORUS I’m just Northern County, spent time on both coasts Home is Northern Country, I love the Great Lakes most I’m just Northern Country, with that I’m just fine Home is Northern Country, among the northern pines VERSE 2 When I was a young boy looking for something, hoping there was something to find When I was a young boy looking for something, learned to be of my own mind When I was a young man looking for something, wondering about faith Then as a young man I found something, I found comfort in this place CHORUS BRIDGE CHORUS VERSE 3 Daddy love to walk in the North Woods, sometimes he’d carry a gun For forty years he hunted deer, all that time he only bagged one Then, he only shot with his camera, I guess he thought it was more fun I love to trek in the north woods, I must be my father’s son VERSE 4 Great-Great Grandad was a Union soldier wounded once in the Civil War Carried the flags from Appomattox to make the nation whole once more His grandson his name was Hank, he was born a Connecticut Yank Went to Detroit, sold some goods, and fell in love with the Northern Woods CHORUS

Angel 04:33
ANGEL VERSE 1 She’s and angel on the street doesn’t touch her feet Head held high, she hovers low. When she flies, my heart soars I will follow where she goes, she’s an angel CHORUS She’s an angel. She’s an angel. She’s an angel. Looking over me. She’s an angel. She’s an angel. She’s an angel — only I can see. VERSE 2 Sometimes I look for her at night, underneath the cold street light If I see that she’s there, I run down seven flights of stairs I want to tell her that I care, but she isn’t anywhere If she’s real or illusion, I don’t jump to any conclusion CHORUS VERSE 3 So I drag myself back up and have myself another cup It’s cold and black as I feel, and I wonder if she’s real I might have the caffeine blues, or she might just be my muse Stare out the window it’s no use, I guess I’ll watch the news CHORUS VERSE 4 It doesn’t matter if I touch that angel that I love so much She’s everything she ought to be, even if she’s fantasy So I carry her inside, no place for my soul to hide Her tears must be jewels if she cries — she’s an angel CHORUS

FOR LOVE AND MONEY (VERSE 1) Out in the desert in Nevada state Marriage out there is a hot dry date The Elvis Presley guy sings his song VIVA Las Vegas VIVA Las Vegas VIVA Las Vegas It’s such a crazy town Leaving the chapel it all breaks down Pawn everything that he owns Can’t get any bars on the phone (CHORUS) Don’t confuse money with what he was saying Don’t confused money with wild women dancing Don’t confuse money with finding true love Don’t confuse true love with the hot wet feeling (hold the A chord for 8 beats) (VERSE 2) Back to New Jersey in Atlantic City The boardwalk always seems so pretty On the shore, the sound of singing VIVA New Jersey VIVA New Jersey VIVA New Jersey It’s a crazy place On the river hoping for an ace Twenty dollars left and all alone Can’t get any bars on the phone (CHORUS) (VERSE 3) Head off to the reservation Have yourself a strong libations Lose your money to the tribal nation VIVA Wisconsin VIVA Wisconsin VIVA Wisconsin It’s a crazy state Back to Vegas and the red eye’s late Booze and blackjack are the only dates The Elvis Presley guy sings his song VIVA Las Vegas VIVA Las Vegas VIVA Las Vegas It’s such a crazy town (CHORUS) (OUTRO) True love, blue love, new love, true love, you never knew love

Bad Bad Man 04:01
BAD BAD MAN VERSE You can see it in his eyes As he spins his web of lies Always helped him to get by Rather cheat than really try CHORUS He’s a bad, bad man, doing bad bad deeds Only cares about his own needs He’s a bad, bad man, each deal’s a con Fancies myself like a mafia don He’s a bad, bad, bad, bad, bad, bad man VERSE 2 What bamboozle will be next? Whatever grift suits him best Maybe get the Russians to invest Claim victory, and puff out his chest CHORUS VERSE 3 It doesn’t matter in the end If he has to screw a friend Rules and laws to break and bend Lowered the bar so far to defend CHORUS

SURRENDER TO LOVE VERSE 1 I know that I’m not easy I might be a little crazy You’ve been putting up with me Longer than is reasonably Don’t know what you see in me Maybe hoping who I’ll be Everyday when you wake Hope you’re right, it’s no mistake CHORUS Your faith has taught me To be the defender of the Surrender to love. Surrender to love Surrender to love. Surrender to love VERSE 2 Sometimes we might fight Each thinking that we’re right It’s a skirmish, not a war Soon forget what we’re fighting for You got to let it go At least that’s your say so Pretty sure that you’re right So we get to sleep at night CHORUS VERSE 3 We’re each of half a mind Put our heads together, we’ll be fine Try to love with full hearts So nothing pulls us apart I take it day by day I guess that is the only way I always thought that you knew it Really don’t know how you do it CHORUS VERSE 1/4 LAST CHORUS Your faith has taught me To be the defender of the Surrender to love. Surrender to love Surrender to love. Surrender to love Surrender to love. Surrender to love Surrender to love. Surrender to love

Hitchhiker 04:46
HITCHIKER VERSE 1 Been a hitchiker, wayfarer on the road Knew I liked her, and I guess it showed Call of the road was too much to bear Gathered my load, and I left her standing there CHORUS No place to be, no place to hide On the side of the road, waiting on a ride Everything seems to be passing me by On the side of the road, waiting for a ride VERSE 2 Headed north, looking for fun Left Detroit, I was on the run Near Marquette, saw the setting sun Looking for cars and trucks I didn’t see one CHORUS VERSE 3 If I’d been a sailor upon a mighty ship Might have been a whaler chasing Moby Dick Never had a boat, didn’t have a car Didn’t have a hope, just a song and my guitar CHORUS VERSE 4 Been a few years, since I stuck out my thumb Lost my direction in a glass of rum She never had fears, I guess I had some Lost her affection, I always on the run CHORUS VERSE 5 If I used my money, bought me a truck Stayed with my honey, and changed my luck Might have tried to lay down some roots Would’ve said goodbye to my old dusty boots LAST CHORUS No place to be, no place to hide On the side of the road, waiting on a ride Everything seems to be passing me by On the side of the road, waiting for a ride waiting for a ride waiting for a ride

CALCULATED RISK VERSE 1 Some guys build their courage With some beer or wine Yes wine Others try to play it cool They always have a line So fine My tongue isn’t working Bound up in a knot I’m panicked and I’m nervous and I’m kind of hot! CHORUS I’ll take a calculated risk If I die inside I know I surely missed Then I’ll cross one more thing off my list Just another boy hoping to get kissed a calculated risk, a calculated risk INTRO VERSE 2 Let me stop and catch my breath and plan a strategy That’s thinkin’ So when I make my move, it doesn’t end in tragedy Oh no! Why can’t I say it with my false composure Why can’t I say it Naked in my exposure CHORUS VERSE 4 I’ve my head screwed on My heart back in my chest Bumpity-bump Doesn’t matter how I do it As long as it’s my best Uh-huh C’mon boy let’s go Ain’t afraid of nothin’ Ain’t afraid of nothin’ Except that she’ll say no CHORUS I’ll take a calculated risk If I die inside I know I surely missed Then I’ll cross one more thing off my list Just another boy hoping to get kissed a calculated risk, I gotta ask her now a calculated risk, I got my courage up a calculated risk, I hope she don’t say no a calculated risk

All Move On 05:13
ALL MOVE ON CHORUS Some move up, Some move on Some disappear and some are gone Some are right, Some are wrong Sooner or later they all move on VERSE 1 Twists and turns and then a spin. Everything goes ‘round again When all seems moving well, a horse escapes the carousel Nothing and no one lasts and lasts galloping quickly into the past CHORUS VERSE 2 Nothing ever stays the same, that’s just how to play the game Some may try to break the rules, time turns them all into fools Friendship may just run aground, sinking slowly without a sound CHORUS VERSE 3 Tents to up and tents come down The circus moves from town to town Some paint smiles and some paint frowns Different circus the same old clowns Nothing and no one lasts and lasts fading into the distant past CHORUS

Madness 03:00
MADNESS VERSE 1 I see you in the moonight Cast a shadow, oh so long Something doesn’t feel right I know it’s wrong CHORUS Love is madness in disguise I see it when I look in your eyes Love is madness in disguise Hey! Hey! Hey! VERSE 2 Oh no, my head is reeling Through the clouds, stars I see Not sure what I’m feeling Is it just me? CHORUS VERSE 3 Heart pounding, getting louder Pretty soon it’s all I hear Exploding like black powder It smells like fear CHORUS VERSE 5 I see you in the moonlight Cast a shadow, oh so long Something doesn’t feel right I know it’s wrong CHORUS
12.
YOU’RE GONNA DO VERSE 1 I don’t know what you think That’s right If you’re feeling in the pink Rose light Or if you’re feeling blue True blue Color blinded by your moods CHORUS Wondering what’s on your mind Coloring between the lines One thing I know is true You’re gonna do, you’re gonna do, you’re gonna do just what you do You’re gonna do, you’re gonna do, you’re gonna do just what you do VERSE 2 They say jealousy is green That’s mean Is it a color that you’ve seen? Obscene Nobody is proud of That shove Color... blinded by your love CHORUS VERSE 3 (solo) VERSE 4 Sometimes late at night Dogs bark Turning off all the lights It’s dark There’s nothing there to see Dear me! No more chro-ma ther-a-py CHORUS Wondering what’s on your mind Coloring between the lines One thing I know is true You’re gonna do, you’re gonna do, you’re gonna do just what you do You’re gonna do, you’re gonna do, you’re gonna do just what you do You’re gonna do, you’re gonna do, you’re gonna do just what you do
