Track Name: Can't Love You (feat. Emma Bordelon)
Verse
I can't love you
Like you want me to
God knows, God knows I've tried

Blame it on
My wicked heart
I'm a victim of my pride
And it tears me up inside

Pre
Cause I want to let go
I want to know
What it is to be loved
But I'm more afraid
Of what it means
Of what it means to give up

Chorus
So I can't love you
Like you want me to
I can't love you

Verse
I can't let you go
Like you want me to
God knows, God knows I've tried

Blame it on
The hole in my heart
Be it wrong or be it right
I can't fight what I feel inside

Pre
Cause I want to let go
I want to know
What it is to be loved
But I'm more afraid
Of what it means
Of what it means to give up

Chorus
So I can't love you
Like you want me to
I can't love you

Bridge
Can't you see that my heart is bleeding out
I want to tell you but the words they won't come out
I wanna leave but you keep pulling me back in
In this game of hearts

Nobody wins, Nobody wins
When we keep circling around
Nobody wins, Nobody wins
When we can't sing out

Chorus
I can't love you
Like you want me to
I can't love you

God know's I try
Track Name: Steady Now
Verse 1
Steady now young heart
It all starts with a step
Gather up your courage
The best is yet to come

Let your feet leave the ground
Spreads your arms open wide
Glory she is waiting
Standing on the other side

Chorus
Breath slow my love
As we waltz across the dark
Breath Slow my love
Steady Now
My young heart

Verse 2
A violent little breeze
Leaves us shaking at the knees
Like a ship on the sea
We are wayward and we are tossed

Don't you worry now
About the storm that surrounds
Your walls coming down
Not everything is lost
Not everything is lost

Bridge
Steady now
Steady now
Steady now young heart
Track Name: Different Kind Of Man
Verse
I have a warrior's blood running through my veins
But I'm still crippled by the fear I can't live without
Welling in your eyes, it's not pride I see
But oceans of shame, rivers of doubt

Chorus
Maybe I'm not what you hoped for
But I know just who I am
I am a different kind of man

verse 2
I wish that I could open your eyes
I am more then anything you dreamed of
There's more to being a man
Than just what he conquers
A man's not afraid to fight with my heart
A man fight's for love

Bridge
I will step out from your shadow
Leave this weight behind
I will shake off these wicked chains
Fly clear to the other side

I can't live by your convictions
While my heart raises it's own
I follow that voice
Until it leads me home

Chorus 2
Maybe I'm not what you hoped for
But I know just who I am
It's taken me a long time to believe
But I know I understand
I am a different kind of man
Track Name: Begin To Love
Verse 1
There's a secret and it's dancing on her tongue
But she can't find the words to tell me what she's done
i hold her hands and say "my girl you're still the one for me"
Won't you open up your heart

She turns away to watch the clouds in the sky
I watch her shoulders tremble as she starts to cry
She says "I wanna tell you but I'm afraid you'll say goodbye to me"
"Can you open up your heart?"

Chorus 1
I want you to love me
I want you to care
I want you to see me
To see I am here

I'm dying in the shadows
I'm lost in this dark
I wanna show you my heart
So we can begin to love

Verse 2
There's ghost and it is standing by her side
I know he's there I see the shame in her eyes
Pulls her from my arms back into the night
Please baby open up your heart

She says What careless fools we are when we were young
How I wish that I could go turn back the winter sun
Rewrite the pages of the tragedy I've spun
Oh please I just wanna open up my heart

Chorus 2
Baby I still love you
My darling I care
Baby I see you
And I'm still standing here

Oh my love you're still beautiful
Yeah you shine like a star
Let me show you my heart
So we can begin to love

Bridge
Long before we met there was a fire that burned red
He made sweet promises and as he crept into my bed
When the sun came he made off with my love

In my head I told myself I was too young
To bear the weight of another lost soul under this sun
I signed my name and signed away my heart

Sometimes I feel his little heart beating through my skin
As if he was sleeping but now he's back in my arms again
But when I wake that dream is gone with the morning light
