Track Name: Indigo Road
Beau James - Indigo Road

I’ve been dreaming about hitting that road
Just leaving behind all the things I own,
Except an old guitar and a bag of clothes,
Yeah I’ve been dreaming about hitting that road
Yeah I’ve been dreaming about hitting that road

Cause I’ve been wondering what I might see
Between the Northern Lights and the Florida Keys
Maybe the plains out west are the place for me
Oh but don’t know what I might see.
Unless I just

Pack it up and hit the road
And set on out for the great unknown
And learn some lessons from every place I go
Oh but I’ve been dreaming about hitting that road
Yeah I’ve been dreaming about hitting that road

And I’ve been wondering who I might meet
Maybe a ranching man or and Indian chief
Maybe the woman I’ll marry is waiting for me
Oh but I don’t know who I might meet
No I don’t know who I might meet

But I’ve been looking for something to do
Cause I have nothing but time and nothing to lose
But is this Indigo Road is the one I choose
Well maybe then I’d have something to do
If I just

Pack it up and hit the road
And set on out for the great unknown
And learn some lessons from every place I go
Oh but I’ve been dreaming about hitting that road
Yeah I’ve been dreaming about hitting that road
Track Name: Carolina's Calling
Beau James - Carolina’s Calling

Carolina’s calling my name
She wants to see my face again
Carolina’s calling my name ‘cause she misses me
Now she’s begging me

To come back home
To her again
And she begs me to stay as long as I can
To come back home
To her again
And she does her best to make me understand
That the home for me will always be
Just holding her hand

But Carolina’s never the same
She’s got the fear that I’m gonna pack my bags again
But Carolina understands
That I’ve got to go
But she still begs me so

To come back home
To her again
And she begs me to stay as long as I can
To come back home
To her again
And she does her best to make me understand
That the home for me will always be
Just holding her hand

That the home for me will always be
Just holding her hand
Track Name: When I Still Had You
Beau James - When I Still Had You

Is it wrong that I miss you babe?
Cause my hands start to shake the more time your away.
Is it wrong that I’ve been counting days?
Without you by my side grind my teeth through the night

And now everything that I do
Oh it makes me crave for you
Oh yeah everything that I do
Seemed much better when I had you

Cause you were always there for me
From the first friend that died to the last time I cried
Oh yeah you, you take my pain away
As you numb down my mind,
Push my troubles aside

And now everything that I do
Oh it makes me crave for you
Oh yeah everything that I do
Seemed much better when I had you

But I’m not gonna say you never did me no wrong
And I’m not gonna say I don’t miss our night alone
I just want to say that I’ll miss you everyday
But I can’t come back
And I won’t come back
Home

Even though everything that I do
Make me crave baby, make me crazy for you
Oh yeah everything that I do
seemed much better when
So much better when I still had you
Yeah it was better when so much better when
So much better when I still had you
It was better when so much better when I still had you.
Track Name: Demon On My Mind
Beau James - Demon On My Mind

I’ve got a demon on my mind
She calls out to me each night
And even though I turn away
She drives her claws into me

She calls my name and I obey cause
She takes away my pain
She calls my name and I obey cause
She numbs the guilt and shame
And I
I’ve been holding on to her so long that
I, I don’t know if I’ve got the strength just to let her go.

But I know I’ve got to say goodbye
Cause if I don’t then I die
But she just takes my self control
And leaves me lying on the floor.

She calls my name and I obey cause
She takes away my pain
She calls my name and I obey cause
She numbs the guilt and shame
And I
I’ve been holding on to her so long that
I, I don’t know if I’ve got the strength just to let her go.

One visit and I’m feeling fine
Two visits and I start to shine
Three visits I begin to sing
Four visits I don’t feel a think
Five visits I forget my name
Six visits I begin to scream
Seven visits and I’m falling down
Eight visits and I hit the ground

And I
I’ve been holding on to her so long that
I, I don’t know if I’ve got the strength just to let her go.
And I
I’ve been holding on to her so long that
I, I don’t know if I’ve got the strength just to let her go.

But I’ve got a demon on my mind
She calls out to me each night
Track Name: Best If You Just Leave
Beau James - Best If You Just Leave

Pack your bags and hit the road
And don’t look back ‘cause you’re not welcome here no more
I’ve changed the locks on all my doors
So the keys you got
Well they won’t fit them anymore

Cause I’m tired of playing all your games
I’m tired of even speaking your name
I’m tired of listening to the words you say to me
So whoever you are
I think it’s best if you just leave.

I took your pills and I flushed them all
Cause I don’t need a crutch to walk away from you.
Cause I’m a man now and I’ll stand strong
I’ve got the scars to prove that loving you was wrong

Cause I’m tired of playing all your games
I’m tired of even speaking your name
I’m tired of listening to the words you say to me
So whoever you are

I think it’s best if you just leave here tonight
Just leave my pride behind
Just leave here tonight
And leave my heart behind
And I think I’ll finally be all right.

Cause I’m tired of playing all your games
I’m tired of even speaking your name
I’m tired of listening to the words you say to me
So whoever you are
I think it’s best if you just leave.
Track Name: Heart Is What You've Found (feat. Kirstie Lovelady)
Beau James - Heart Is What You've Found

I caught you looking at me
Now I'm wondering what you see
That keeps your eyes so fixated on me
Is it just my boyish smile
Or could it be my sense of style
Cause I can't figure it out for the life of me

Are you thinking you want to give me a shot
Are you thinking that what you want is what I've got
Are you thinking that I'd fit into your plans
Cause if that is what you're thinking then
Come take my hand cause

I won't let you down
If I could only find the words to say to you now
I won't let you down
But if a heart is what you're looking for
A heart is what you've found

I try to signal you
Try and get you to make a move
But you keep me sitting here on this stool
What's it gonna take for me to turn you on
Show me the stories engraved in your arms
Cause I'm tired of waiting on you

Are you thinking you want to give me a shot
Are you thinking that what you want is what I've got
Are you thinking that I'd fit into your plans
Cause if that is what you're thinking then
Come take my hand cause

I won't let you down
If I could only find a way to show you now
That I won't let you down
But if a heart is what you're looking for
A heart is what you've found

I don’t want to get hurt again
and I’m afraid to just jump right in
but maybe if you trust me
maybe if you let me in
I’d make you understand

That I won’t let you down
If I could only find the way to show you now
That I won’t let you down
But if a heart is what you’re looking for then

I won’t let you down
If I could only find the way to show you now
That I won’t let you down
But if a heart is what you’re looking for
If a heart is what you need it’s what you’ve found

Then a heart is what you’ve found now

Then a heart,
Then a heart,
Then a heart is what you’ve found now
Track Name: Ghosts Of Your Past
Beau James - Ghosts of Your Past

Took the clothes that you gave to me,
Bagged them up for a charity,
And I gave them all away
I gave them away and.

Took the notes that you wrote to me
Soaked them all in gasoline
And I burned them all today
I burned them all today

‘Cause I’ve learned now you can’t move on
With ghosts of your past living on ya
Yeah I’ve learned now you can’t move on
With ghosts of your past living on ya

Left the house where you lived with me
Moved out here to Tennessee
And I sold that house away
Sold that house today
Took the car that you drove with me
Gave the keys to a man in need
And I watched him drive away
I watched him drive away

‘Cause I’ve learned now you can’t move on
With ghosts of your past living on ya
Yeah I’ve learned now you can’t move on
With ghosts of your past living on ya

But I won’t say that I never loved you
‘Cause I loved you know I loved you
And I won’t say that I never cared
‘Cause you know I cared I know I cared
Won’t say that I never loved you
‘Cause I loved you know I loved you
Won’t say that I never cared
But how can I care when you’re not here?

Took the hear that you gave to me
Sent it back to your family
Cause I’m moving on today
I’m moving on today
Met a girl who’s in love with me
Want to give her my everything
So I’m letting go today
Letting go of you today.

‘Cause I’ve learned now you can’t move on
With ghosts of your past living on ya
Yeah I’ve learned now you can’t move on
With ghosts of your past living on ya
Track Name: Lucky Star
Beau James - Lucky Star

Before you go and say goodbye
I wanted to give you a special night
Something to remember me by
While you’re gone
I planned out a big surprise
To get out of the city and escape the lights
Cause I want to show the night sky
To you

So when you’re gone
Look up to the sky and find that lucky one
That star I’m wishing on
For you come back home.
When you’re gone
Look up to the sky and find the lucky one
The star I wishing on
For you to come back home again

I’m breaking all my rules tonight
Cause I’m coming on strong with my heart on the line
But something tells me that’s its fine
With you
So before we go and say goodnight
I’ll kiss you under the starry sky
And make damn sure you know which one is yours

So when you’re gone
Look up to the sky and find that lucky one
That star I’m wishing on
For you come back home.
When you’re gone
Look up to the sky and find the lucky one
The star I wishing on
For you to come back home again

‘Cause I’ll wait for you until you come back
I’ll wait for you
I’ll wait for you until you come back
And I’ll wait for you

So when you’re gone
Look up to the sky and find that lucky one
That star I’m wishing on
For you come back home.
When you’re gone
Look up to the sky and find the lucky one
The star I wishing on
For you to come back home again
Track Name: Be In Your Life
Beau James - Be In Your Life

Cigarettes always help me step outside
On the nights that I see he by your side
And all my jealously starts to grip me tight

So I play along and pretend I’m doing fine
‘Cause you moved on and expect that so did I
But all these memories just keep gripping me tight
Every time I see your lips just begging for a kiss goodnight

I want to be that man that’s waking up next to you
Want to be the lips you kiss at night and in the morning too
Want to be that plan that you say you’re sticking to
Want to be the hand you hold on the day that you say I do

‘Cause I wanna be the man you’ve always wanted
Be the man you’ve dreamt of all your life
‘Cause I wanna be the man you’ve always wanted
Be the man you’ve dreamt of all your life

As time goes on I try to fade these thoughts of you
But it feels wrong and the only thing to do
Is find the words to finally say to you
Like I’m sorry for that night
But I was afraid that you couldn’t love me true

I want to be that man that’s waking up next to you
Want to be the lips you kiss at night and in the morning too
Want to be that plan that you say you’re sticking to
Want to be the hand you hold on the day that you say I do

‘Cause I wanna be the man you’ve always wanted
Be the man you’ve dreamt of all your life
‘Cause I wanna be the man you’ve always wanted
Be the man you’ve dreamt of all your life

Cause if I never said goodbye
Then I’d be holding you tonight
But what I said to you that night
Well I lied
I lied

‘Cause I wanna be the man you’ve always wanted
Be the man you’ve dreamt of all your life
‘Cause I wanna be the man you’ve always wanted
Be the man you’ve dreamt of all your life

Wanna be in your life
Wanna be in your life
Track Name: Ten Shots
Beau James - 10 Shots

30 days since I lost you
and I’ll drink for 30 more
till I find myself a savior
that doesn’t come from a liquor store
Cause I made good friends with Johnny,
Jack and old Jim Beam
But I hope I find me a lover soon
Before my body gives up on me.

Cause it’s one more shot to the memories
That I can’t seem to forget
And two more shots to the thought of you
Off with someone else
And three more shots just to numb the pain
That I’m feeling deep inside
And four more shots to uncertainty
That I’ll live me a lonely life,

Until I find me somebody new to love
Until I find me somebody new to love
Until I find me somebody new to love
I guess the bottle will be good enough.

Cause all the lips that I try to kiss
They don’t taste the same.
Cause they ain’t got that sweet cherry lip gloss
That used to drive me insane.
And every time I smell your perfume
On another girl
I try to finish my glass,
Close my tab but there’s a whole top shelf saying something else.
Cause it’s one more shot to the memories
That I can’t seem to forget
And two more shots to the thought of you
Off with someone else
And three more shots just to numb the pain
That I’m feeling deep inside
And four more shots to uncertainty
That I’ll live me a lonely life,

Until I find me somebody new to love
Until I find me somebody new to love
Until I find me somebody new to love
I guess the bottle will be good enough.
