Track Name: Leave Myself Behind
Leave Myself Behind T. Cassell


Gonna change the road I'm on
The car I drive, the town I'm from
Reinvention ain't no crime
Gonna take a step forward
And leave myself behind

Had a dream long ago
Moving on, that I know
Get a new start, I'll be feeling fine
Take a step forward
Leave myself behind

Things make no sense these days
Let it all go down in a fiery blaze
From the ashes, I will rise
Take a step forward
Leave myself behind

Don't get me wrong, I might miss
The parts of me left behind
Those too will fade away
And I’ll wake up to a brand new day

All past is history
Like all the plans I had for me
Need a new lease on this life of mine
Take a step forward
Leave myself behind
Track Name: Let it Rain
Let it Rain t. cassell

Rain rain, here comes the rain
The clouds have come to block the sun
Here comes the rain

Rain rain, bring on the rain
It won't take long to right this wrong
Lord, bring on the rain

Let it rain, let it rain
There's a great big storm ahead and it's
moving in
Let it rain, let it rain
Wash away the dirt, oh let it rain

Rain rain, don't fear the rain
You can fear the flood when it's filled with blood
But don't fear the rain

Rain rain, can't stop the rain
wash away the darkest day
Can't stop the rain

Let it rain, let it rain
There's a great big storm ahead and it's
moving in
Let it rain, let it rain
Wash away the dirt, oh let it rain

Let it rain, let it rain
There's a great big storm ahead and it's
moving in
Let it rain, let it rain
Wash away the dirt, oh let it rain

Rain rain, rain over me
Just give me time, to drink my wine
Before you rain down on me
Just give me time, to drink my wine
Before you rain down on me
Track Name: Little Lies
Little Lies t.cassell

Couldn’t sleep again, another restless night
I got a feeling something ain't right
Drove past your house ‘round 3 a.m.
Saw you in the window laughing with him

Little lies little lies
All you got for me is little lies
Little lies little lies
All I get from you is little lies

Should’ve read between the lines
But I was too busy loving you to recognize the signs
Wipe the tears from my eyes
Cuz I’m looking back at all the little lies

Little lies little lies
All you got for me is little lies
Little lies little lies
All I get from you is little lies

Yea, I understand
Yea, you had other plans
Yea, thought we’d grow
But I didn’t know, I didn’t know....

Little lies little lies
All you got for me is little lies
Little lies little lies
All I get from you is little lies

Little lies little lies
All you got for me is little lies
Little lies little lies
All I get from you is little lies
Track Name: Beep Beep
Beep Beep t, cassell

I first saw her on a hot summer day
She was a beauty cruising on the highway
Chased her down till we came to a stop
Open back, two door, red head top

She's no joke
Got a four speed stroke
then a screech and smoke
So far behind
Straight off the line
Beep beep there she goes down the street
Beep beep there she goes down the street

Thought I saw her a few days ago
tried to catch up but too damn slow
lost her west on 88
There goes my lover speeding away

She's no joke
Got a four speed stroke
then a screech and smoke
So far behind
Straight off the line
Beep beep there she goes down the street
Beep beep there she goes down the street

I dream about her now and again
red hot V8 curvy back end
Close my eyes she's just devine
My Ranchero GT 429

She's no joke
Got a four speed stroke
then a screech and smoke
So far behind
Straight off the line
Beep beep there she goes down the street
Beep beep there she goes down the street

She's no joke
Got a four speed stroke
then a screech and smoke
So far behind
Straight off the line
Beep beep there she goes down the street
Beep beep there she goes down the street
Track Name: Doing the Best I Can
Doing the Best I Can t. cassell

I’m doing the best I can
I’m doing the best I can
So why oh why am I just getting by
When I’m doing the best I can

Working night and day
Got my bills and I pay
Not gonna lie sometimes I’d rather die
But I’m doing the best I can

Tired of running this race
When your coming in last place
I see the finish line and still so far behind
But I'm doing the best I can

All day long Im fighting
Then pass out asleep
Wake up and do it again
The same goes for next week

I'm doing the best I can
I’m doing the best I can
So why oh why am I just getting by
When I’m doing the best I can

I think it’s just a crime
When you're spending all my time
Take and you take and I never catch a break
But I'm doing the best I can

All day long Im fighting
Then pass out asleep
Wake up and do it again
The same goes for next week

I’m doing the best I can
I’m doing the best I can
So why oh why am I just getting by
When I’m doing the best I can

Don't you dare believe
What they say at your company
That you’re gonna win it, in just a minute
When your doing the best you can

Track Name: Letting You Down
Letting You Down t.cassell

Letting you down, letting you down
Give me 5 minutes, i'll be letting you down
Letting you down, letting you down
Yea, i'll be letting you down

If you need a helping hand?
That’s a job for a better man
One that’s proud, responsible
Ask me, time is full

Letting you down, letting you down
One things for sure, i'll be letting you down
Letting you down, letting you down
Yea, I’m gonna let you down

If you need a buck or two
Someone to follow through?
Have a problem to talk about?
I’ll be gone, there’s no doubt

Letting you down, letting you down
A million ways, i'll be letting you down
Letting you down, letting you down
Yea, i'll be………...

Let let letting you down
Ask anyone around
They’ll all tell you…

Need a shoulder to cry upon
Or a friend to lend an arm
Maybe a place to stay
Got to find another way

Letting you down, letting you down
Did it again, I just let you down
Letting you down, letting you down
Yea, i'll be………...

Let let letting you down
Ask anyone around
They’ll all tell you…
I’ve let them all down
