Track Name: Guffaw
It's hard not to laugh at misfortune
When it's the result of a bonehead decision
Just don't bust a gut cuz when your numbers up
you'll be the center of attention

guffaw guffaw
funny peculiar or funny ha ha
how quick is your wit
how strong is your jaw
how thick is your skin
guffaw guffaw
Track Name: Scraping the Bottom
Spent my money like a fool
Just to keep her attention
She treated me kindly she treated me cruel
She did things I can’t mention
Things were hot then things got cold
It never was in the middle
She dragged my heart up about a thousand stairs then
Threw it out the window

So I’m scraping the bottom of the barrel
Baby let me tell you it’s slim pickin’s now
I’m scraping the bottom of the barrel
Sorry honey but singing this tune is all my heart can allow

I told myself a million times.
“Never let a woman own me”
The shorter the skirt the longer the hurt
That’s what my daddy told me
There’s a thing called joy and pain 
and I always find myself between it
I’ll never let a woman trick me again 
and this time I really mean it

I’m scraping the bottom of the barrel
Baby let me tell you my chips have all ran down
I’m scraping the bottom of the barrel
Sorry honey but singing this tune is all my heart can allow

Solo

I got taken for a ride 
I’d be the first to tell ya
The problem is when I say no 
it always comes out as Hell Yeah
Do with me what you will should be 
tattooed on my forehead
There’s probly never been a bigger sucker than me 
since history’s been recorded.

I’m scraping the bottom of the barrel
Baby let me tell you it’s slim pickin’s now
I’m scraping the bottom of the barrel
Sorry honey but singing this tune is all my heart can allow
Track Name: Breaking Bread
Traveling at night you see a light ahead a quiet little house 
you feel the pain in your side you can’t go any further. 

Wars came and changed all the people to strangers 
took the buildings away 
took the children away.

 Anticipating the worst on these cold summer days 
your love for yourself is all that keeps you going. 

Wandering alone in an old familiar land 
a full moon in the sky 
an empty gun in your hand. 

I’ve been waiting here forever
 to see a friendly face come though the door
 and now you’re here. 
I don’t mind breaking bread 
with company so good.
Only wish it wasn’t just you and me. 

Sounds of freedom ringing overhead and in the distance where 
resistance still exists, in the caves and all the subdivisions. 

Can we pretend to go way back as friends. 
With a neighborly smile 
would you stay for a while.

I’ve been waiting here forever 
to see a friendly face come though the door 
and now you’re here. I don’t mind breaking bread 
with company so good. 
Only wish it wasn’t just you and me.

It’s not every day someone stops my way 
please forgive me if I ramble on and on. 
The memories are strong the nights keep getting longer. 
I’ll never get used to these empty rooms.
Track Name: Brandice
Brandice you’re a brave little girl
Some day you’re gonna see the world
And capture awesome things on cameras
To fill a million picture frames

We have so much fun together
I can sing to you forever
You got an honest open heart
Something I noticed from the start

Brandice have you ever turned your lens around
And seen how light
Plays forever in your eyes
There’s just so many things you do
That makes me wanna stick with you
Like when you tilt your crooked smile
As if I knew all the while that
I never stood a chance 
and when you asked me to dance 
my fate was sealed 

No matter where I’m going your way 
I’m gonna be your Tenzig Norgay
 No burden is too great to bear 
I’m going with you everywhere

(solo)

Brandice have you ever turned your lens around
And seen how light
Plays forever in your eyes
There’s just so many things you do
That makes me wanna stick with you
Like when you tilt your crooked smile
As if I knew all the while that
I never stood a chance 
and when you asked me to dance 
my fate was sealed
Track Name: I Can See Me
If I can remember this song tomorrow
I promise I will sing it loud and clear
But lately my brain’s been good for only one thing and that’s
devising ways to bring you right here
Evil ways to bring you right here

I can see me and you together
I can see me falling to my knees
I can see me acting a fool when I see you
I’m so into you I can see me
So deep into you I can see me.

But you don’t seem to see things my way
You see things differently indeed
You say you’re involved you say your problem is solved and grief from me is something you don’t need
Definitely nothing that you need

I’m sorry if when I see you out and about there’s nobody else
The only thing I see when I see you is you
And me

I can see me drinking you like coffee
Sipping you like afternoon tea
I could slam you down like coca cola and crown
I’m so into you I can see me
So deep into you I can see me

I gave you my all I gave you my best
You took my heart and pulled it right through my chest
So now you hold it bleeding and I keep repeating the only reason it’s still beating is you.

I can see me and you together
I can see me falling to my knees
I can see me acting a fool when I see you
I’m so into you I can see me
So deep into you I can see me.

I ca see you through your bedroom window
I can see you from way up in a tree
As long as I stay at least 50 feet away
There’s no law preventing you from being me
Maybe that’s the way it should be.
