CONCRETE JUNGLE I'm in quicksand and I try to get away But I feel stuck here and sink deeper every day Punch a clock and then it's monkey see and monkey do Feeling lost in a crowd and all alone I'm in hell - leave a message at the tone Living in Concrete Jungle Dying in Concrete Jungle When I came here it was like a foreign land Still a boy and hoping I'd become a man There were lessons that I learned and never wanted to I grew up fast, feels like I'm growin' old So if I can, I'd like to save my soul Living in Concrete Jungle Dying in Concrete Jungle The jungle draws you like a moth into a flame Before you know you're tangled up in all the games And broken promises that burn under flourescent sun It's a trap, don't believe your eyes I’m warning you, so you don’t spend your life Living in Concrete Jungle Dying in Concrete Jungle Written by Jeffrey Scott Stewart and Carmen Melton Taylor Copyright Blue Clover Music (ASCAP) / Awesome Musings Publishing (BMI)

TRUE BELIEVER I'll start drivin' and won't look back Great adventures start like that I'll read signs, then flip a coin And take my chances where I'm goin' Stop wherever I run out of gas A true believer in a foreign land I'll live a little and learn a lot And leave the world much better off Wherever I might go I'll make a difference there I know I'll be strong and take a stand A true believer in a foreign land I am just one I am just one of many I am just one I am just one of many Never does work out that way Maybe I'm just not that brave It does more than cross my mind To crawl out of my skin sometime But I'm staying where I am A true believer in a foreign land I am just one I am just one of many I am just one I am just one of many True believer in a foreign land True believer in a foreign land Written by Jeffrey Scott Stewart (ASCAP) Copyright 2009 Blue Clover Music (ASCAP)

FROSTBITE She's drivin' crazy, tryin' to get out of town It doesn't matter where she's goin' right now Steam on her windows, her blood's runnin' hot He was cold and heartless, never thought he'd get caught She's got frostbite His love was cold enough to burn One look into her icy eyes confirms Frostbite She's afraid of being touched Now that she's realized love can hurt so much Hunger stops her, she wipes the tears from her face Walks into the diner and pretends she's okay But when a stranger crosses the room She cuts him down, it's much too soon She's got frostbite His love was cold enough to burn One look into her icy eyes confirms She's got frostbite She's afraid of being touched Now that she's realized love can hurt so much Love is a fire you can't control And where there's smoke you'd think there's a flame But there's a cloud that comes from dry ice It looks familiar, but it's not the same She's got frostbite His love was cold enough to burn One look into her icy eyes confirms Frostbite She's afraid of being touched Now that she's realized love can hurt so much She's got frostbite She's got frostbite She's got frostbite Written by Jeffrey Scott Stewart and Pam O'Daniel Copyright 1996 Blue Clover Music (ASCAP)/ Pam O'Daniel

LOVE BY THE MINUTE There's a place that I know about It's in a rundown section across the town They're makin' love by the minute Love by the minute It's a good place to leave your blues You don't even have o take off your shoes They're makin' love by the minute You can walk right in and choose your own Or use your credit card number over the phone But they'd love to take your money Love to take your money You can do whatever you want Just as long as you pay up front 'Cause they'd love to take your money They're makin' love by the minute They're makin' love by the minute Love by the minute She'll try to tell ya' that it ain't even work You're so much better at lovin' than them other jerks And ya' know you're kind of special You know you're kind of special She'll be tellin' you just what she's feelin' Then you turn over and you read on the ceilin' "You know you're kind of special" She's makin' love by the minute She's makin' love by the minute Love by the minute Written by Jeffrey Scott Stewart Copyright 1981 Blue Clover Music (ASCAP)

TONIGHT YOUR LOVE Pay no mind to the words I said before I was angry, didn't know what I was sayin' There ain't nothin' that ya' can't make worse If you keep playin' at these mind games you've been playin' Tonight your love Tonight your love Tonight your love is miles away You steal the covers and pretend you're asleep It's a nasty habit and I don't know who you're foolin' I put up with all your childish ways But sometimes woman I swear I don't know what you're doin' And tonight your love Tonight your love Tonight your love is miles away Tonight your love Tonight your love Tonight your love is miles away Make up your mind don't leave me Hangin' with nothin' to hold on to Make up your mind don't leave me Hangin' with nothin' . . . Sometime soon we're gonna have to really talk You and me, we'll talk and we'll both listen too 'Cause I can't go on long like this ya' know I need your love and I'm already missin' you And tonight your love Tonight your love Tonight your love is miles away Tonight your love Tonight your love Tonight your love is miles away Make up your mind don't leave me Hangin' with nothin' to hold on to Make up your mind don't leave me Hangin' with nothin' . . .

THIS TIME Susie showed up at our door sometimes late at night Make-up runnin', eyes swollen from the tears she'd cried No place else to go She’d say he lost control And she was closer than the demons he was tryin’ to fight This time she's leavin' him forever This time she saw the light Finally, she’s gone to find better Now that he crossed the line She's never goin' back this time In the mornin' she‘d stare into her coffee cup Mumblin' somethin' 'bout how she'd really had enough Then he’d call on the phone And beg her to come home She’d say 'no', but she’d be cryin' when she hung up This time she's leavin' him forever This time she saw the light Finally, she’s gone to find better Now that he crossed the line She's never goin' back this time This time he went too far A bullet to her heart She thought she’d save him with her love - He killed her in cold blood This time she's leavin' him forever This time she saw the light Finally, she’s gone to find better Now that he crossed the line She's never goin' back She's never goin' back She's never goin' back . . . this time Written by Jeffrey Scott Stewart and Julianne Sutton Copyright 2000 Blue Clover Music (ASCAP) / Julianne Sutton Original DOC in 1996

GETAWAY CAR I got an ’87 Oldsmobile I call my getaway car It’s a solid ton of tin and steel, parked in my front yard It could take me anywhere at all on a full tank of gas With my foot on the accelerator to make my escape real fast But my boys are fast asleep tonight in their bedroom down the hall And their mama’s right across the way – Lord knows it ain’t her fault That I sit here smoking cigarettes in the kitchen in the dark Starin’ out this window at my getaway car Restless hearts they break apart the ones they leave behind I never want to be that kind of man But it ain’t always easy doin’ what I know is right So I admit, I almost understand My daddy left my mom and me when I was five years old He drove a ’67 Mustang painted black as coal I pressed against the window as he pulled out of the drive Mom just said, “Son, it ain’t your fault”, as she stood there and cried Restless hearts they break apart the ones they leave behind I never want to be that kind of man But it ain’t always easy doin’ what I know is right So I admit, I almost understand I got an ’87 Oldsmobile I call my getaway car Written by Heath Davidson and Jeffrey Scott Stewart Copyright 2000 Heath Davidson / Blue Clover Music (ASCAP)

SURVIVOR I’m a lonely rider Still, I’m a survivor and I’m not goin’ down I am not pretending Life is never-ending, but it’s not ending now I know this to be right . . . What doesn’t kill me makes me strong And I’m way too tough to die It’s gonna be a long, long ride It’s gonna be a long, long, long, long ride There’s no use complaining If it starts to raining and I’m hungry and cold I might have been mistaken But this trail I’ve taken is the one that I chose I know this to be right . . . What doesn’t kill me makes me strong And I’m way too tough to die It’s gonna be a long, long ride It’s gonna be a long, long, long, long ride If I had a chance to start over again I’d prob’ly choose to head straight into the wind I know this to be right . . . What doesn’t kill me makes me strong And I’m way too tough to die It’s gonna be a long, long ride It’s gonna be a long, long, long, long ride ‘Cause I have the heart to survive I’m a lonely rider Still, I’m a survivor and I’m not goin’ down Written by Jeffrey Scott Stewart D.O.C. 10/27/2001 Copyright 2001 Blue Clover Music (ASCAP)

THE NEED Well she's kind of stupid, but she's so damn pretty that he thinks he'll let her slide He'll overlook her mental lack, for the virtue of her thighs But when the night it comes that they're together and she asks him inside He forgets himself that all the words he said before were lies The need made him a liar The need made her naive He was liable to make promises That she was bound to believe To satisfy the need Well he's kind of strange, he doesn't do the things she likes to do But she'll overlook his funny ways 'cause she thinks he's kind of cute And when she's in his arms it doesn't really matter what they do She really doesn't give a damn about his attitude The need made her a player The need made him a pawn She was making all the right moves He was moving right along They both need reassurance so they whisper more sweet lies Neither one would really like to be alone tonight There's more to what they're sharing than some may realize It's no-one's place to question what's wrong and what is right The need is more than simple It's more than just a drive It's more than just a thin desire It touches all our lives And keeps us satisfied Written by Jeffrey Scott Stewart Copyright 1993 Blue Clover Music (ASCAP)
