  • Coming Home feat. Julia Michaels
    I wake up
    Feeling in my soul
    I’m livin’ someone else’s life
    I’m turnin’ into concrete
    Harder than these city streets
    Where no one even cares if I’m alive
    I gotta get it right
    Get it right

    Chorus:
    There’s a place that I know
    Where they all know me
    I gotta get back now to the ones who love me
    Wrap myself around you, never let you go
    There’s nothin’ in the world that feels like
    The place that I know where they all know me
    I gotta get back now to the ones who love me
    Wrap myself around you, never let you go
    There’s nothin’ in the world that feels like
    Coming home
    My mind’s heavy and I can’t sleep
    Not even a memory is good enough
    To get me through the night
    I’m longin’ for the real thing
    People who know the real me
    And all the ways to love me back to life
    Mmmm, I gotta get it right
    Get it right

    Repeat Chorus

    I know it’s only one call away
    But it’s not the same
    I know it’s only one call away
    But it’s not the same
    I know it’s only one call away
    But it’s not the same
    I know it’s only one call away
    But it’s not the same

    Repeat Chorus

    I’m feeling
    Lost in all the madness
    I need somewhere to ease my mind
    These sidewalks
    Filled with different faces
    So many places
    But there’s none like mine
    I’m coming home
  • Never Comin' Down
    I can feel it comin on now
    As the music plays
    Takin’ shots with the night owls
    As the world just fades away
    Got a paycheck in my pocket
    ‘Bout to get it all gone
    Light it up like a rocket
    We’re goin’ all night long
    Everybody sing

    I love it when you…

    Chorus:
    When the sun goes down, stars come out
    It’s a…. Can you feel it?
    When I take you by the hand, dancin’
    And we pass it around, ‘round, ‘round
    We’re so high, we could paint the sky
    Tear the top right off the ceilin’
    And I swear we’re never ever comin down
    Never comin down
    Tell me now, can you feel it?
    Never ever, never comin down

    Well the band’s on fire
    And the beer is ice cold
    We’re goin’ down to the wire
    Then we’ll all go rollin’ home
    And maybe we’ll keep it goin’
    ‘Til we see that sun comin up
    But right here, right now
    I wanna see you move
    And hear you sing it out loud

    Repeat Chorus

    Tell me now can you feel it?
    Never comin down

    When the sun goes down, stars come out
    It’s a…can you feel it?
    When I take you by the hand, dancin’
    And we pass it around, ‘round, ‘round
    We’re so high, we could paint the sky
    With the love right now we’re feelin’
    And I swear we’re never ever comin down
    Never comin down
    Tell me now, can you feel it?
    Never comin down
    Tell me now, can you feel it?
    Never comin down
  • Same Heart
    Traded in my old Toyota and I moved out of that shoebox apartment
    I’ve been wearing brand new clothes
    Even changed the number on my phone
    Different bars and different streets
    Different drinks, different lips
    Different parts of town
    A different Friday crowd
    And there’s different songs on the radio…who am I kidding
    Everything’s different now
    Everything

    Chorus:
    But the same heart
    That loved you’s still beating in this chest hard
    No matter how far I think I’ve moved on
    There’s always gonna be a scar
    ‘Cause I still got the
    I still got the same heart

    I’ve been goin’ different ways to get to work
    ‘Cause if I go down 12th, it still hurts when I pass that corner light
    Where your laughter and that ‘Wanderlust’
    Comes flooding back and fills up my car
    And I realize that a piece of me
    Will always wonder where you are

    Repeat Chorus

    I still got the same heart

    I could say that I’m fine but I’d be lying
    It’s so hard to move on but I keep trying
    Every breath that I take
    You’re there reminding me
    I could say that I’m fine but I’d be lying
    It’s so hard to move on but I keep trying
    It’s so hard to move on but I keep trying
    I’m lying

    I still got the same heart
    That loved you, it’s still beating in this chest hard
    No matter how far I think I’ve moved on
    There’s always gonna be a scar
    ‘Cause I still got the
    I still got the same heart

    I still got the, I still got the same heart

    I still got the
  • My Wave (Intro)
  • My Wave
    I roll with the punches
    I go with the flow
    I used to fight against the tide
    But I learned my lesson and now I know
    That there’s a better way to live this life
    You got to find your song and just sing it
    And there’s a better way to feel all right
    Let it all go and let love take control

    And just ride
    On a wave so free, just you and me
    Comin’ alive
    It feels so good
    Just watchin’ the world goin’ by
    D, D, D, doin’ my thing out here
    Vibin’ and ridin’ my wave
    Um hm
    E-v-e-r-y day
    Why would I wanna live any other way
    Than ridin’ my wave

    We all got problems
    I’ve had my share of pain
    I got scars in places that you can’t even see baby
    But it made me who I am today
    So when it rains
    When there’s a hurricane
    You got to find your wave and just surf it
    Put some love in the world
    Find a boy or a girl
    To heal all the hurt
    ‘Cause you know you deserve it

    So ride
    On a wave so free, just you and me
    Comin’ alive
    It feels so good
    Just watchin’ the world goin’ by
    D, D, D, doin’ my thing out here
    Vibin’ and ridin’ my wave
    Um hm
    E-v-e-r-y day
    Why would I wanna live any other way
    Than ridin’ my wave

    You gotta watch out for the shine blockers
    Me I’m just a time stopper
    Wait, huh?
    We gon' get there when we get there lil’ mama
    We gotta depend on the waaaaaave
    Leanin' and dreamin’
    Pullin' up on the scene and we sting ‘em
    Focused and floatin’, we’re drinkin' and singin'
    Been a long time comin’
    But it’s all for the better
    What we can’t do alone, we can all do together

    Let’s ride
    We’re comin’ alive
    It feels so good just watchin’ the world goin’ by
    D, D, D, doin’ my thing out here
    Vibin’ and ridin’ my wave
    E-v-e-r-y day
    Now why would I wanna live any other way
    E-v-e-r-y day, E-v-e-r-y day
    E-v-e-r-y day, E-v-e-r-y day
    I feel it, baby
  • Parallel Line
    You said, “I love you” to me
    And I don’t know what that means
    So I froze on my feet
    People use it so carelessly
    And I couldn’t believe
    That you would dive in so deep
    And you said perfectly
    Everything I’ve been feeling about you

    It’s time to break the chains
    That held me back from you
    So, come on and

    Chorus:
    Take a little bit of my
    Heart tonight
    No, I literally don’t mind
    Just please don’t misplace it
    Take a little bit of my
    Heart tonight
    Baby be mine now
    Baby be mine now
    Maybe it’s time we
    Put our hearts in a parallel line

    Well I was never the type
    To put it all on the line
    But I’ve been changing my mind
    Since you opened my eyes
    It was the way that the light
    Picked you out of that night
    Then you were right by my side
    Put a soul in my body

    And now it’s time to close the space between
    The two of us
    So, come on and

    Repeat Chorus

    Baby, it’s time
    Baby, it’s time

    Take a little bit of my
    Heart tonight
    No, I literally don’t mind
    Just please don’t misplace it
    Take a little bit of my
    Heart tonight
    Baby be mine now
    Baby be mine now

    And take a little bit of my
    Heart tonight
    No, I literally don’t mind
    Just please don’t misplace it
    Take a little bit of my
    Heart tonight
    Baby be mine now
    Baby be mine now
    Maybe it’s time we
    Put our hearts in a parallel line
    And put our hearts in a parallel line
    And put our hearts in a parallel line
  • Drop Top feat. Kassi Ashton
    She’s goin’ to Coachella
    With feathers in her hair
    She’s got the past
    And a dream catcher in her rearview mirror
    And the band on her shirt
    Is comin’ on at 9
    She doesn’t even know right now
    Where she’s gonna stay tonight
    She’s gonna stay tonight
    She’s on a mission
    You can see she’s just gotta be free
    Red lips on a refugee

    Chorus:
    Saturday night
    Feelin’ alright
    Show him what he lost
    In my jeans skin tight
    Stars comin’ out
    The music up loud
    Saturday night
    Feelin’ alright
    Shades on dancing
    With my hands up high
    Stars comin’ out
    The music up loud
    She loves driving with her drop top down
    Yeah, driving with her drop top down

    Palm trees fading like a summer fling
    Crystals on the dash
    Everybody singin’ “The Shape Of You”
    Becky’s gone quiet
    On the passenger side
    And Maddie’s in the back just a little too high
    Looking like a teenage dream
    Red lips on a refugee
    Repeat Chorus

    Everybody sing…

    Repeat Chorus

    Driving with her drop top down
    She’s always driving with her drop top down
  • Way Too Long
    The words are getting hard to find
    Like friends on Valentine’s
    The puzzle pieces got lost in time and left behind but fought a real good fight
    But there's something about you babe

    Though I try to open up
    It's no use, I'm frozen in this state
    Being great at pushing everyone I love, I love away

    And it's just a little
    Too late to change
    I got a heart that's been beating
    This way for way too long
    I can't stop singing
    In and out of key
    I got a heart that's been bleeding
    This way for way too long
    For way too long

    Despite the look that's in your eyes
    I know how hard you try
    To break my stubbornness
    Do your best to pull me out
    But I'm buried in this mess
    I see you’re disheartened and

    I really want to give you more than just parts of what I can
    Wish you could call the last one so you understand

    That it's just a little
    Too late to change
    I got a heart that's been beating
    This way for way too long
    I can't stop singing
    In and out of key
    I got a heart that's been bleeding
    This way for way too long
    Baby I'm trying
    Baby I'm trying
    You know I've been trying for way too long
    Baby I'm trying
    Baby I'm trying

    But it's just a little
    Too late to change
    I got a heart that's been beating
    This way for way too long
    I can't stop singing
    In and out of key
    I got a heart that's been bleeding
    This way for way too long
    For way too long
    For way too long
    For way too long
  • Horses feat. Lindsay Ell
    Sometimes you get a little bit frightened
    Afraid of the wind and the lightning
    Sometimes you get a little bit insecure
    Sometimes you wonder if you’re even good enough
    Hiding from the morning when it’s too much
    There’s so much waiting behind the door

    And I know and I know and I know
    That you just wanna dance in the light
    Don’t you know, don’t you know, don’t you know
    You’re alive

    Chorus:
    You just let your horses run
    To the limit like never before
    Let’s be lost and young
    I wanna show you what your heart is made for
    Let your horses run
    Let your horses run

    I saw you on the street just the other day
    You look so pretty when you smile that way
    So open up the door, let your heart escape

    ‘Cause I know and I know and I know
    That you just wanna dance in the light
    Don’t you know, don’t you know, don’t you know
    You’re alive

    Repeat Chorus

    And I know and I know and I know
    That you just wanna dance in the light
    Don’t you know, don’t you know, don’t you know
    You’re alive

    ‘Cause I know, yeah, I know, I know
    That you just wanna dance in the light
    Don’t you know, don’t you know, don’t you know
    You’re alive

    Repeat Chorus
  • Gemini
    She’s not quite a contradiction
    She rolls with it
    Quick with a snap decision
    I’m fine with it
    Strong on her strong opinions
    I’m weak for it
    It’s not just one thing
    Not one just thing
    I want all of it

    Emotionally, physically divin’ right into me
    Emotionally, physically gettin’ a hold of me
    Emotionally, spiritually movin’ so close to me
    I wonder if she knows

    Chorus:
    She’s a maniac in the bed
    But a braniac in her head
    And I know what everybody knows
    Mm mmm baby she’s both
    Wears the hell outta that dress
    But she’s pretty even when a mess
    And I know what everybody knows
    Mm mmm baby she’s both

    All of my complications
    She’s sees through it
    I don’t know if it’s because of
    Or in spite of it
    But I don’t doubt her intentions
    When she’s sayin’ it
    It’s not just one thing
    Not one just thing
    I want all of it

    Emotionally, spiritually movin’ so close to me
    I wonder if she knows
    Repeat Chorus

    She’s in my soul, I’ll never let go
    She’s in my heart now, in my heart now

    Repeat Chorus

    She got the stars comin’ out of her eyes
    And got everybody starin’
    Like they’re caught in the headlights
    A little bit left
    A little bit right
    She’ll wake you to make love
    In the middle of the night
    And every breath that I take is brand new
    I’m a man brought back to life
    Castor and Pollux sent you to save me
    I’ve returned to my Gemini
  • Texas Time (Intro)
  • Texas Time
    New York girls, they can be so pretty
    But I get cold livin’ in the city oh
    Then I got to go
    And I’ve been west out to California
    Summer nights and girls are so much warmer there
    They just don’t have a care
    But I know a place where the people are smilin’
    Takin’ it easy and it’s been a while since I’ve gone
    And now it’s time to go home

    Chorus:
    Give me a tight t-shirt on a real hot body
    Ya’ know what’s on my mind
    Yeah I’ll show you where it’s at
    C'mon lets get back on Texas time
    You gotta rock me easy, we’re gonna party
    Whiskey, women and wine
    Yeah I’ll show you where it’s at
    C’mon lets get back on Texas time

    I-35, Dallas down to Austin
    We can find a world we can get lost in there
    Where we can breathe the air
    We can howl at the moon like a wild coyote
    Cactus in bloom and the pink peyote’s so fine
    We got nothin’ but time

    Repeat Chorus

    And I know a place where the people are real
    And they’re takin’ it easy and makin’ you feel right at home
    Yeah and that’s where I’m goin’

    Repeat Chorus
  • Love The Way It Hurts (So Good)
    We were dancing on the beach
    You were holding on to me
    And on my chest, I felt the beating of your heart

    Another late night reverie
    Seconds felt like years to me
    You said baby let’s just stay right where we are

    And I guess we should have known
    It was too good to go on
    But there’s something about us
    I just refuse to let go
    I remember

    Chorus:
    I remember summer nights
    You were like a midnight daydream
    Neon lights, we were making waves in the backseat
    Every time I close my eyes
    I sink into the pain of the memory
    I’m holding on for what it’s worth
    I guess I love the way it hurts…so good
    I love the way it hurts…so good

    There’s a pounding in my chest
    A rush of blood goes to my head
    I thought I saw your silhouette pass by the door

    And even though it hurts like hell
    I just cannot help myself
    I crave the way it makes me feel
    But it leaves me wanting more
    I remember

    Repeat Chorus

    And I guess we should have known
    It was too good to go on
    But there’s something about us
    I just refuse to let go

    Repeat Chorus

    I guess I love the way it hurts…so good
    I love the way it hurts…so good

    When you hear somebody says somebody hits like a girl
    How does that hit you?
    Is that such a bad thing?

    When you hear a song that they play sayin’ you run the world
    Do you believe it?
    Will you live to see it?

    Sister - shoulder - daughter - lover
    Healer - broken halo - Mother

    When somebody laughs and implies that she asked for it
    Just ‘cause she was wearing a skirt
    Oh, is that how that works?

    When somebody talks about how it was Adam first
    Does that make you second best?
    Or did He save the best for last?
