Track Name: Reasonable Girl
I been waiting in my car
Living off cigarettes and candy bars
What else can I do
Don't ya know I'm sweet on you

And I'm a reasonable girl
I don't talk too much
I don't cause a fuss
And when the time is right I'm gonna rock your world
I'm a reasonable girl
I'm a reasonable girl

I been living in my head
Memorizing every word you said
I was ready to take your name
But how can I love you when you're running away

And I'm a reasonable girl
I don't talk too much
I don't cause a fuss
And when the time is right I'm gonna rock your world
I'm a reasonable girl
I'm a reasonable girl

Talk is cheap and people are dumb
Don't wanna hurt you boy just wanna have some fun
I'm gonna lock the door and through away the key
Now baby won't you reason with me

And I'm a reasonable girl
I don't talk too much
I don't cause a fuss
And when the time is right I'm gonna rock your world
I'm a reasonable girl
I'm a reasonable girl
I'm a reasonable girl
I'm a reasonable girl
Track Name: Band of Angels (Song for Robin)
Coming on like a tidal wave you crash into the ground
All the things you could not say it don't matter now

Sometimes it's hard to know when to stay and when to go
Is it time to go?
Is it time to go?

Coming on like a tidal wave right from the start
It's a crime they all know your name bu they don't know your heart

Sometimes it's hard to know when to stay and when to go
Do you have to go?
Do you have to go?

Coming on like a gentle rain after the storm
You been living in so much pain it can't hurt you anymore

Did you always know when to stay and when to go?
Is it time to go?
It's time to go

I hear a band of angels
I hear a band of angels
I hear a band of angels
I hear a band of angels

Singing you home
Singing you home
Welcome home
Track Name: Midnight Ramble
I remember sneaking out to the Wilcox Mistral Show
I couldn't have been more than 13 I wasn't allowed but I just had to go
so I made my way through the cold dark woods until I could hear the band
I held my breath I opened the door praying lord help me if you can

It was a midnight ramble
Everybody came to get down
Midnight ramble
Every last person in the whole damn town
Was shaking and singing and stomping their feet
It weren't like nothing
it was a midnight ramble
And I was only 13

I walked on into the room and my eyes started to burn
There were people laughing and smoking and drinking just about everywhere I turned
The man playing guitar well he knew how to bend them strings
That whole band had whole room jumping from the floor up to the beams

It was a midnight ramble
everybody came to get down
midnight ramble
Every last person in the whole damn town
Was shaking and singing and loosing their minds
but after all it was Saturday night
At the midnight ramble
And I was feeling just fine

There was Levon a boy from school trying to catch my eye
I didn't know just what to do but I told myself this ain't no time to be shy
So I took his hand and he pulled me close and we started to groove
In the back of my mind I heard my mama say, you know damn well this ain't what good girls do

At the midnight ramble
Everybody came to get down
Midnight ramble
Every damn person in the whole damn town
was shaking and singing and speaking in tongues
and it wasn't over till we saw the sun
At the midnight ramble
I learned how to have fun

Now that was many years ago i have since grown and moved away
but I still think about that little old shack in the woods to this very day
I make my living singing these songs tryin to get the people to dance
but you know where'd I be in a red hot minute if I had the chance

I'd go to the midnight ramble
Where everybody came to get down
Midnight ramble
Every damn person in the whole damn town
was shaking and singing and going buck wild
and you couldn't stop it even if you tried
it was a midnight ramble
And I was just a child
Track Name: Give it What We Got
You been letting everybody down
Now you tell me that you're leaving town
But you owe me
Don't act like you don't owe me

You can tell me anything you want
You know I love it when you talk that talk
Why don't you show me
C'mon baby show me

'Cause I'd like to start over again
I'd like to be a better friend
I know it's easy to pretend that it's fine
It's not fine but it's your and it's mine

And we should give it what we got
Give it what we got
Give it what we got

Yeah we should give it what we got
give it what we got
give it what we got

The truth is a bitter friend
The truth is likely to bend

I'm not scared of being alone
I just get nervous that I won't get home
Until you hold me
C'mon baby hold me

'Cause I need to see it in your eyes
I need to know you're on my side
I know it's easy to run and hide from the truth my dear
But the truth is it's never been so clear that we should

And we should give it what we got
Give it what we got
Give it what we got

Yeah we should give it what we got
give it what we got
give it what we got

And I know you have a broken heart
But I know we were built to fall a part
I have loved you right from the start can't you see
It's just me
And we won't know if it's over or if it's meant to be until we

Give it what we got…
