Track Name: Trouble
I’ve been downhearted ever since we met
Loving a ramblin’ man only leaves a worried head
Our love is changing
I won’t wait and see
If the evil in your eyes
Will get the best of me

Even a blind man
Can see the signs
You got trouble creepin’ into your mind

Bad luck and tragedy’s
A thorn felt deep inside
Of every heart you break
And fool burnt with your lies
My world’s been shakin
Won’t wait and see
If the evil in your eyes
Will get the best of me

Even a blind man
Can see the signs
You got trouble creepin’ into your mind

I pray that good can save my soul
And save me from the shame I know
I've seen this evil freed before
In trouble I've bestowed

Even a blind man
Can see the signs
You got trouble creepin’ into your mind
Yeah you got trouble creepin' into your mind
Track Name: Time Runnin' Dry
Lately it feels like the nights go on for days
6 months running and I can't walk away
Tryin' not to step on the cracks
Lookin' at the hourglass

Feels like I’m running on time, runnin’ dry

People in the street lookin' like they got somewhere to go
Walkin' in their sleep but it seems like they don't even know
The hands on the clock are broken
Churches closed but the bars are open

I can hear the sound of time, runnin' dry

I'm gonna find out what this life of mine is worth
Before the sun takes one more ride around the earth
I won't let another day go by
I'm gonna reach my hands up into the sky

I ain't gonna sit here cryin'
I'd rather be livin' than dyin'
I ain't gonna watch my time, runnin' dry

Oh I'm runnin'
Oh I'm runnin'
Oh I'm runnin'
Track Name: Your Turn To Cry
Where were you when I needed someone to be
My right hand man, my will to succeed
Thought you’d be around, but you hung me out instead
You left me alone, willing to let it end

Now you’re coming back with a tear in your eye
Now it’s your turn to cry

Finally found a way, found the right words to say
That made my soul believe that you aren’t what I need
The time has gone, when you could change my mind

Now you’re coming back with a tear in your eye
Now it’s your turn to cry

I won’t let myself go back to my old ways
Still I wonder how you’ve changed
Now the moon is gone and stars are shining bright
I can't help you, can’t help you dry your eyes

Now you’re coming back with a tear in your eye
But now it’s your turn to cry

Now you’re coming back with a tear in your eye
But now it’s your turn to cry
Track Name: Witness
Witness

If you are the law, I will obey
I'll follow your truth, and never ever stray

If you are a crime I’ll take the blame
I’ll carry your cross, cause love is worth the weight

I need to testify
Your love is what I got to prove
Oh I want to testify
I need a witness

I need a witness
Nothing’s ever felt so right

I need a witness
I'm still guiltily every night

I need a witness
Someone to believe
How your love has set me free

I need to testify
Your love is what I got to prove
I want to testify
I need a witness

I need to testify
Your love is what I got to prove
I want to testify
I need a witness

Oh I need to testify
Please let me testify
I need a witness
Oh I need a witness
I need a witness
Lord I need a witness
