Track Name: Happy Songs
I wrote a song today
about the devil and the crossroads
I couldn't help but think how cliche
that we're all selling our souls

I'll tell you whats really blue:
A blues singer that cant feel the blues

I tell you when we're up we're really down
When we make a smile our guitars frown
That's what its like makin' sad songs
Happiness is just a smile but sadness is a lifestyle

I tell you a long long time ago
I had some love in my heart and a sparkle in my eye
I sat down and wrote a song about it
It was so goddamn bad It'd make you cry

I tell you when we're up we're really down
When we make a smile our guitars frown
That's what its like makin' sad songs
Happiness is just a smile but sadness is a lifestyle

I've come to think I'm happy in my misery
Comfort's taken in the fact that I'll die
Every night spent awake and no sleepin'
Most days I cant bring myself to eat.

That's what its like making sad songs
When we're up we're really down
when we make that smile our guitars frown
Happiness is just a smile but sadness is a lifestyle

I tell you when we're up we're really down
When we make a smile our guitars frown
That's what its like makin' sad songs
Happiness is just a smile but sadness is a lifestyle
Track Name: Make Do
Aint got no money in my pocket
No, not a dollar to my name
Yes, I am a poor boy
No, I'm no child of fame

But I make do
I make do honey when oh when I see you

This job of making music
well it don't pay too well
Everything I got, I stand to lose it
I tell you I've been through hell

But I make do
I make do honey when oh when I sing that tune

They say I'm not supposed
to be who I am
Honey, some days I come close
When I take your hand

But I make do
I make do honey when I play the blues

Some things aint as easy as others
like makin' one night stands
yes we got a lifetime of troubles
aint easy being your own band

But I make do
I make do honey when I see you

I dance every day
and play like I want
Who I wanna be
when I'm in your arms

I make do
I make do honey when oh when I see you
I make do honey when I sing that tune
I make do honey when I sing the blues
Track Name: The Dreamer
Baby whisk
the memories away
that plague me every night
roaring seas
crashing waves
raging fires
through the day

melodies that bleed in my throat
left me feeling so remote
in the night

I spent my days
longing for you
I spent my nights
wishing too

But If I am just a part of your game
You will hear me scream that name
in the night

New dreams
fill my nights
of the darker broken sort
I swear
I'll make you pay
Failure is no last resort

because darling
this
means
war.
Track Name: Ashtray Blues
Here I am again
Looking down a bottle
of what a
preacher calls a sin

I know its what I want
but I know
that I don't
want to live with it

Its what I want
Its what I am

I'm okay with being overcome
I know what I want is to be done

Here I am again
Staring down the barrel
of a little white pill
that a girl had left me for

Its what I want
Its what I am

I'm okay with being overcome
I know what I want is to be done

Track Name: Make Do (Version 2)
Aint got no money in my pocket

No, I'm no child of fame

But I make do
I make do honey when oh when I see you

This job of making music
well it don't pay too well
Everything I got, I stand to lose it
I tell you I've been through hell

But I make do
I make do honey when oh when I sing that tune

They say I'm not supposed

Honey, some days I come close
When I take your hand

But I make do
