Lyrics

Livin' Lean

Written By: Daniel Kraft

I clock out. It’s sundown.
I got Friday night up ahead of me now
I make a quick trip home, wash up, change clothes
We’re going out downtown till the morning
I got flask of Jack at my side with your name on it
So come on out when you hear my horn honking

CHORUS
We’re just living lean, still green
We’re living lean, summer night time fiends.
People say,
What you gonna do? What you gonna be?
I say, just keep on living free
And playing loud and proud, and living on the scene
Won’t you pour me another shot of Jack or Jim Beam

Jimmy King and Lyla Bea
You know they’re throwing a kegger at the Green Sea
It’s a hundred degrees there ain’t no AC
Get your Dixie Cup at the door
We’re staying alive, Working till five
but we all know what them paychecks are for

REPEAT CHORUS

Come Sunday, ain’t nothing open
But the good Lord’s arms, make a donation
But gimme a road, gimme wheels, gimme steel
Gimme a reason to go and I’m gone
Yeah come Sunday I hit the highway
You can call it a sin, I call it salva-tion

REPEAT CHORUS

What's It Gonna Be

Written By: Daniel Kraft

(for female vocalist)

I ain’t waiting for you to figure it out
Life is passing you by as you buy the bar another round
It could happen like this--couple years from now
You’ll look up from your beer and be another old guy at the Lizard Lounge

CHORUS
If you keep playing heartbreaker
You’re a regular Casanova
you ain’t getting no younger
soon you’ll just be a loner
if all you wanna be is a bedshaker
Baby you should think it over
There’s more to life than one night rides
It’s called love
So what’s it gonna be?
You gonna stay a playboy or be a man for me?

Well you can do what you want, with whoever you want
But make sure that you want, just what you’re gonna get
When all the good girls are gone and married away
And you didn’t change while every one else did
(We grew up)

CHORUS

Baby I’m the one who loves you
I’m the one who knows the
Kind of man you could be
But if you don’t want to make this
Life you live worth living
Well I ain’t gonna wait around to see
what’ll never be

CHORUS

I'm Gone

Written By: Daniel Kraft

The hardest thing a man can face
Is to face himself in the mirror
Old regrets I’ve had a few
But nothing could be clearer
Cause the things that you do
They’re driving me through
I can’t take you any more
Our love has hit the floor
You probably think that there ain’t nothing wrong
You’re so wrong

CHORUS
And I’m gone
With the wind
I’m out
Like a light
You won’t see me in the morning
You won’t see me tonight
I ain’t gonna get down on my knees
I ain’t gonna fight
I don’t even care if you never hear this song
So long
Baby I’m gone

The coldest day I’ve ever known
Was the day that you turned from me
And I saw in a glance you were gone
Your loving eyes oh so empty
But you just carry on
Like nothing is wrong
well I can’t keep on living that lie
Can’t keep on just getting by
So baby if you think
That there ain’t nothing wrong
You’re so wrong

CHORUS
