Track Name: My Old Friends
VERSE 1
Absus2
I feel like myself again
I’ve been hanging out with my old friends
Fmin7
They take me for who I am
Nothin in this world feels better than
Absus2
knowin that the best things never changed
After all that time has rearranged
Fmin7
I count my lucky stars for ones
who fill my everyday with fun
Absus2 Eb5 (hold) Bbsus4
Thanks to my old friends

VERSE 2
Absus2
You know it’s been a short while since we met
Though it feels like thirty years ago we left
Fmin7
Headed down this open road
Singing till we can’t no more
Absus2
Making every stop our hearts desire
Wide awake when we should be so tired
Fmin7
Drawing up tomorrow’s plan
Though it never matters where we land
Absus2 Eb5 (hold) Bbsus4
as long as I’m with you

CHORUS
Eb Db
Some say we’re throwing caution to the wind
Eb Db Eb
Well taking care is easier said than done
Eb Db Bbmin7
when I’m with you there’s no confusion
Bbsus2 Absus2
You feel like my old friend
Track Name: Sweet Revenge
VERSE 1
C7 Eb/Bb Ab G7
I promised my girl I’d try not to be so late
When I arrived the party was well under way
So I sat in the corner, I felt a little lost in space
Across the room I saw you taking her hand
Flash of anger stuck me as I tried to stand
"You son of a bitch," the expression drawn on my face

C7 | Eb/Bb | Ab | Bb G ||

PRE
Ab D7 Cmin Bb G
The crown wasted atop your head
Ab D7 Cmin Bb G
I'll make a point of it you never put it on again
Ab Eb G7
Off with it instead, it’s bout time I get my sweet revenge

CHORUS
C7 Eb/Bb Ab6 G7
my sweet revenge
C7 Eb/Bb Ab6 G7
my sweet revenge
C7 Eb/Bb Ab6 G7
Nothing comforts me like sweet revenge
C7 Eb/Bb Ab6 G7

VERSE 2
Your back stabbing's got me all worked up
I’m not gonna lie down for this, man I've had enough
It's time for good old-fashioned fisticuffs, C’mon ring the bell
I’d better warn you I'm not gonna fight so fair
A crowd has gathered for us, everyone’s prepared
To see us in a cage match, only one of us walks outta this cell

PRE
The crown wasted atop your head
I'll make a point of it you never put it on again
Off with it instead, it’s bout time I get my sweet revenge

CHORUS
my sweet revenge
my sweet revenge
Nothing comforts me like sweet revenge
I’ll be singing…

||: C7 | Eb/Bb | Ab6 | G7 :|| Repeat 4X

BRIDGE
Ab D7 Cmin Bb6
When all of this comes to an end
Ab D7 Cmin Bb6
And you see yourself headed towards the bends
Ab D7 Cmin Bb6
When you’re down and all alone
Ab Eb G7
I"m gonna be there for you, just to knock you off your throne

C7 | Eb/Bb | Ab6 | G7 | C7 | Eb/Bb | Ab6 | G7(SHORT) ||


DOUBLE CHORUS
Track Name: Ghost
VERSE 1
She sings a song that stays in your ear not too long
She burns the day so quickly you’d be amazed
Should you cross paths, all that you share could never last
Still she cries her name, and no one hears it all the same

CHORUS
Just like a ghost she will visit you in the night
Just like a ghost she will disappear from your life forever

VERSE 2
She paints a picture, of everyone dancing around her
They just see scratches in the ceiling, but to her there’s some special meaning
I wonder how long, she’ll go on singing her song
It never ends, but for all it’s worth it never begins

CHORUS
Just like a ghost she will visit you in the night
Just like a ghost she will disappear from your life forever


BRIDGE
Just like a melody she seemed to fit so perfectly
Just like the song that comes and goes she needs to be free
She needs to be free

CHORUS
Just like a ghost she will visit you in the night
Just like a ghost she will disappear from your life forever
Track Name: Promise

Track Name: Every Time
Lyrics/Chords:

3/4 ||: F BbMa7 C :||
Snow keeps on falling from the sky down to the street
Windshield wipers on my car, holding down the beat
On my way to see you, driving to the country side
The month of March is coming in, roaring like a lion

2/4 G/F | Gb/F | F | D7(b9) | G | C7(b9) | F |
I've been racing, taking in the scene, I hit cruise control to rest my feet, think about the girl I'm off to meet
G/F | Gb/F | F | D7(b9) | G | C7 (HOLD) || 4/4
Every time I get a little lost, I miss my exit cause I'm caught in a daydream of you.

4/4 ||: F BbMa7 C :||
If and when I fall from my horse
I'll pick myself up and get back on course
know you're waiting at the finish line
I'll find a new way to you every time
I'll find a brand new way back to you every time

3/4 ||: F BbMa7 C :||
Now spring is arriving melting all the tracks I left
It's gonna be a trip now my best route is my best guess
Take it with a grain of salt, cause it is the life I chose
Moving right along now, one door opens to another's close

2/4 G/F | Gb/F | F | D7(b9) | G | C7(b9) | F |
I've been racing, taking in the scene, I hit cruise control to rest my feet, think about the girl I'm off to meet
G/F | Gb/F | F | D7(b9) | G | C7 (HOLD) || 4/4
Every time I get a little lost, I miss my exit cause I'm caught in a daydream of you.

4/4 ||: F BbMa7 C :||
If and when I fall from my horse
I'll pick myself up and get back on course
know you're waiting at the finish line
I'll find a new way to you every time
I'll find a brand new way back to you every time
Track Name: Dear Terena
Dear Terena,
Seems like ages since I’ve seen you
So much that I wanna say
Unlock every mystery
Are you happy, are you sad?
I know that you’d tell me if you had the voice
How’s life through the looking glass?
Reunited with the one you love at last

But you left so many behind that loved you too
Now what are we supposed to do?

Shouldn’t we all be doing better?
Don’t we all just get together and let it go
She’s going home, it’ll be the first time
She'll never be alone again for the rest of her life
We'll miss her, there’s no in between
Dear Terena

Dear Terena,
In a recurring dream I see ya now and then
I look sideways, up, and down
Finally I see your face there in the crowd
I look back another time around
Just my imagination acting up now

But you left so many behind that loved you too
Now what are we supposed to do?

Shouldn’t we all be doing better?
Don’t we all just get together and let it go
She’s going home, it’ll be the first time
She'll never be alone again for the rest of her life
We'll miss her, there’s no in between
Track Name: Fast As I Can
I thought I was your go to guy
But you’re headed off in your own direction this time
Was I ever part of your larger than life plans?
Or did you just wake up this morning and realize I was not your man

You only heard me as a side note
I didn’t make the cut for the symphony you wrote
I thought at least I’d be guaranteed a front row seat
Now I’m lined up at the box office, and I’d be lucky with a nosebleed

It’s so hard to turn back once you’ve gotten so far
It’s so hard to have so little once you’ve had it all
I can feel your heart beat from a hundred miles away
Under your rhythmic spell I’ll fall

I’ll fall again
as fast as I can
Don’t you worry about me, it’s not the first time my heart’s been so broken
I’ll get over you one day, but probably not the day I planned

I crossed my fingers, I made my wish
And I tossed all I could afford into the ocean
I bet it all on you
I expected all or nothing at all, and I got what I was due

It’s so hard to turn back once you’ve gotten so far
It’s so hard to have so little once you’ve had it all
I can feel your heart beat from a hundred miles away
Under your rhythmic spell I’ll fall

I’ll fall again
as fast as I can
Don’t you worry about me, it’s not the first time my heart’s been so broken
I’ll get over you one day, but probably not the day I planned
I’ll get over you as fast as I can
I’ll get over you as fast as I can
Track Name: Put the Brakes On
(capo fret 4)

VERSE
G Emin Bmin D
You write the words to a sad song.
Leave the rest to me; I’ll give you music to sing to
Strum along until your heart races.
Fall asleep and wake up in the strangest of places

PRE CHORUS
G D D7
When ya gonna learn life’s not worth speeding through?

CHORUS
C Amin F#dim Emin A7 D D7
Put the brakes on, Put the brakes on
C Amin F#dim Emin A7 D D7
Put the brakes on, Put the brakes on
C Emin G D
Put the brakes on, Put the brakes on

VERSE 2
And all along I was in your blind spot
You never saw me there I guess we never could have been prepared
For flying through the rails we were so shell shocked
But we were bound to crash; there was nothing we could do about that

PRE CHORUS
G D D7
When ya gonna learn life’s not worth speeding through?

CHORUS
C Amin F#dim Emin A7 D D7
Put the brakes on, Put the brakes on
C Amin F#dim Emin A7 D D7
Put the brakes on, Put the brakes on
C Emin G D
Put the brakes on, Put the brakes on
